Welcome to “Geographical Echoes of the Bible”—where landscapes become gateways to deeper understanding. Based on Africa is the Land of Shem book as we Relearn the Bible for all intents and purposes, utilizing ancient and current geography and landmarks presented in the scriptures.

Genesis Chapter 9

The Great Creator blessed Noa and his sons, saying, “Be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the earth.” The creatures of the land, air, and sea fear and honor you, and they are entrusted to your care. All that lives shall be your sustenance, like the green herb provided for you. But the life within the flesh, its blood, must not be consumed.

A sacred law is proclaimed: for every drop of spilled blood, a reckoning shall follow, by man or by beast. Humanity, made in the image of the Great Creator, shall hold this covenant. Be fruitful, multiply, and let life flourish upon the earth.

The Great Creator spoke again to Noa and his sons, and a covenant was established with all living creatures, the birds, cattle, and beasts. A promise to never again cleanse the world with a flood was given. A bow of vibrant colors appeared in the clouds—a sign of this covenant, spanning generations.

The Great Creator set this bow as a reminder.

When clouds gather, their hues shall grace the sky, signifying the eternal bond between the Creator and all living beings. The covenant, sealed in the sky’s embrace, ensures that never again shall the waters rage to destroy all flesh.

This radiant bow, a symbol of unity and promise, stands guard in the clouds. The Great Creator gazes upon it, mindful of the covenant shared with every creature upon the earth. And so, the covenant endures, woven into the fabric of existence.

To Noa, the Great Creator declared, “This rainbow is the token of the covenant, between me and all flesh upon the earth.” From Noa’s lineage emerged Shem, Ham, and Japheth (Yafeta)—founders of nations. Their legacy spread across the land, as their descendants multiplied, fulfilling the Creator’s sacred plan.

In these verses, we glimpse a covenant woven between humanity and the Great Creator, symbolized by the vibrant bow in the sky—a timeless bond that unites all living beings in harmony and promise.

However, there was a huge note that we dare to rewrite, reteach, and have you relearn. It’s about Noa’s sons. In traditional learning we are taught they dispersed and lived according to the map below.

Noa and his sons had a family conundrum. It resulted in a nearly “fictitious” story of the curse of Canaan, who is one of Noa’s grandsons. Here is what we must relearn. It is stated in our Canon Bible that Noa praised His Creator and condemned Canaan to be a servant to his brothers, specifically to Shem and Yafeta. In addition, Yafeta was enlarged by the Creator and either the Creator or Yafeta’s offspring would dwell in the tents or lands of Shem. Canaan would serve them.

Genesis Chapter 11

The sons of Noa are off the ark, settling in lands they will claim as their own and for their posterity. They spoke one language.

Verse 2, And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

Verse two says they journeyed from the east in the King James Version. Nevertheless, in Strong’s Lexicon, it would translate more like this: “As the people journeyed eastward, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there.”

Alternative Meaning of East

The word east or eastward is miqqedem (Miq-qe-dem) or qedem, which translates into “front” or “formerly” and even antiquity, ancient times, and beginning. What this is saying is that the people traveled or journeyed from the ancient places, where Adam and Ewa lived, which would be in the Southern parts of the continent, and found a plain in Shinar. Shinar is “Sinar” and would anciently be written or spoken as “Sennar.”

Therefore, the land of Sennar is where Cush’s son, Nimrod, would preside and rule over–and guess where that is on ancient and modern maps? Modern-day Sudan, which of course is on the African continent.

We, the authors of this project, tentatively call Africa the land of Shem. Shem’s brother Yafeta dwells in the tents of Shem. Learning the geography of the Bible proves to give us a considerable advantage in our historical approach as well. The Creator’s principles as they relate to the history of the people, who are our ancestors, give us further clarity of our present, and of course our future (which is prophecy). The sobering fact is that the Bible from Genesis chapter one to Genesis chapter 11 has been on the continent we identify as Africa and not one family has left.

The Tower of Babel

The sins of Nimrod proved unbearable for the land and for his project to colonize the entire continent.

Verse 4, And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

5 And the Great Spirit came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the Great Spirit said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8 So the Great Spirit scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Great Spirit did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Great Spirit scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

The work of building what we call Sudan today, but anciently it was called Sennar, collapsed. The Great Spirit confused their communications and this dispersed the people. New leaders and kingdoms were built on Babel’s collapse. The project Babel failed, just as it will in the future, now called Babylon; it is fallen, it is fallen.

Stay focused on His Word, the Great Creator bless you.
