Apparently, the American Left has found religion over the children caught up in the political issues surrounding the illegal alien invasion of America. Everywhere we look in ‘the media,’ we are starting to find people telling us how God’s Word supports the open embrace of these illegal invaders, and that the President’s treatment of these illegals — especially the children — is ‘anti-Christ.’ If you are a believer, you must reject these voices. It is they who are speaking for and doing the work of Satan, and the Scriptures make this clear. They key is knowing what Scripture says about such matters, which — apparently — these new ‘converts’ do not.
First, it was God who established the nations and their boundaries. He did this at the Tower of Babel. If a nation is to be a nation, it must have borders. A border cannot simply be ignored. This is not God’s way. It is the way of man! It is Communist, which is godless, or rather, which worships man as his own god. The drive to erase national borders is an attempt to reverse God’s decision to separate people into nations. Thus, it is a violation of God’s will. In addition, Scripture makes it clear that God hates those who move boundary stones. Boundary stones do not just mark property lines: they also mark the boundaries of nations. Treating them as though they do not exist or have no consequences is the same as removing them. In both cases, it is showing a total disregard for their purpose and the things they symbolize. This makes two witnesses to the fact that God ordained the idea of borders and boundaries, and that those borders and boundaries are not to be ignored or erased without consequences. Therefore, anyone advocating such actions is advocating rebellion to God, which is sin, and sin is lawlessness. That means the people defending the illegal aliens and their children are lawless.
The next thing I have seen is a claim that it is ‘anti-Christ’ to separate children from their families. First, the people making this claim are bearing false witness in that they are not telling the truth about this issue. Most of the children who have been separated have been separated because their parents have been caught breaking the law. It is common practice to separate children from their parents when the parents break the law. Otherwise, we would have to send the innocent child to jail with their guilty parents. But the people trying to defend these children are not bothering to explain this, and that means they are bearing false witness — which is lying by another name.
Then there is the matter of how these people who claim it is ‘anti-Christ’ to separate children are actually saying it is ‘anti-Christ’ to obey the law. There is a very pointed passage in Matthew that directly addresses this issue — as well as the people pushing the defense of these illegal aliens:
Matthew 23 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
23 Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, 2 saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; 3 therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them. 4 They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger. 5 But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men; for they broaden their [a]phylacteries and lengthen the tassels of their garments. 6 They love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called Rabbi by men…. 12 Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.
Most believers do not even understand what Jesus is telling His followers here. He has just condemned the leaders of Israel for assuming authority over the people and passing laws that do not agree with and even contradict God’s Laws. Then Jesus turns around and tells the people to obey these laws anyway. Only, Jesus cautions the people not to be like the lawless men who made them. Jesus calls these men who make unjust laws hypocrites; saying they do things so that they can elevate themselves in the eyes of men, but not God.. In fact, Jesus condemns these men for forcing their unjust laws on the people, but refusing to apply them to themselves. Thus, Jesus explains that these men who make unjust laws in the name of God do so for themselves, not out of obedience to God. They want public recognition and praise, and to be thought of as morally superior, but they are unworthy of such things. In fact, in another passage, Jesus says these same men are children of Satan.
The things Jesus accuses the Israelite leaders of doing are the same as the things our current leaders are doing to us. Keep reading in Matthew 23. Read the eight woes and ask yourself how many of them apply in principle to the people claiming to be our leaders today? The specific form may have been different in Christ’s day, but the principle — the foundational motivation or action underlying the specific form or shape — those are the same today as they were in the past, and our leaders are just as guilty today as they were in the times of Christ.
[Note: The command to obey our earthly leaders — even the wicked ones — is reiterated in Romans 13, but it can also be found in the Old Testament. This is because — for believers — God is the one who gives us our leaders, and He gives us the leaders we deserve as a people. Thus, if we want better leaders, we must fist seek to become better, more God-fearing people.]
So, where are we? Well, first, we have Scripture that clearly tells us God made the nations and set their borders, and then God told us not to ignore or remove those borders.
Second, we have Jesus, Himself, telling us to obey our earthly leaders and laws — even if those leaders force unjust laws upon us. Jesus also warns us not to copy the behavior of these people who make unjust laws for others, but refuse to apply those laws to themselves. In other words, we are commanded to obey our wicked leaders, but not to be like them in our own, personal lives.
But there is something else that might confuse people who do not know and understand the whole of God’s Word. We are clearly told to care for those who are weak, and powerless, and who cannot care for themselves. Children are specifically singled out. We are to pay special attention to the children, especially those who do not have families to care for them. Thus, it would appear that the children of these illegal aliens would fall under this command to care for the weak and helpless. But, when we look with honest eyes, we will find that the children who are not actually part of Central American gangs are being treated with kindness and care while their criminal parents are processed by our legal system. In addition to this, those people who are truly fleeing situations where their lives are in danger are being given consideration for asylum. This means our laws recognize these Scriptural commands, and they provide for the care of those who are truly helpless.
This brings us to the real point of this post — as well as the whole issue of illegal aliens: that these illegal aliens are breaking the laws of this nation! It does not matter whether or not people like our laws (remember Jesus commanded people to obey the laws). We have a process by which we can make changes to our laws. It does not matter whether or not people agree with our laws. We have the freedom to use persuasion to convince people to agree with us so that we can make changes to our laws. And it certainly is not a problem when the President enforces our laws. That is his job. It is what he is elected to do. What’s more, upholding the law is what God calls a nation’s leader to do. This means the President that enforces our laws is obeying God, and the man who ignores our laws acts in rebellion to God. Furthermore, those people who seek to subvert the law are also enemies of God. They are lawless, and Scripture condemns the lawless as sons of Satan.
The American Left does not recognize or honor God — at least, not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. We know this because they voted to remove God from their Party platform. They refuse to even recognize Him. The American Left only recognizes and honors the god of Marx: which is man, himself. The American Left is and has been Marxist since the time of Woodrow Wilson. Wilson wrote about his desire to bring Communism to America, he just wanted to ‘tweak’ it a little. ‘Progressivism’ is the term Wilson used to describe this ‘American’ form of Communism, and Hillary Clinton openly and knowingly embraced that agenda on national TV during the 2008 primary election. The final piece of ‘proof’ of this fact is that the American Communist Party has openly declared they no longer need to run their own candidates because the Democrat Party has adopted their political platform. How is this connected to the illegal alien invasion? It is connected to a plan designed to subvert this nation by diluting its population. This not only changes the culture, it helps the Left insure an ever-increasingly One-Party rule in this nation (another key goal of Communism).
Communism is of the same spirit as the man of lawlessness described in 2 Thessalonians 2. It is man telling himself he can be his own god. It is pure lawlessness, and it is what we are seeing from the American Left. The people on the Left in America are not servants of God; they are servants of themselves and only themselves. They believe they are their own gods, and they are at war with the One True God. It is why they align themselves with every god except the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Do not let them fool you. They do not care about these children. They are using these children for their own political gain, which places them directly under the eight woes of the Pharisees. Nor do they understand or believe the Scriptures they are citing to support their false agenda of compassion. Remember, even Satan can quote Scripture to serve his purposes. But unless the use of Scripture is in line with the whole of the revealed Will of God, it should be dismissed. Do not listen to anyone who claims to be citing Scripture correctly — especially me. be a Berean: search the Scriptures for yourself and make sure that whoever is using God’s Word is doing so correctly, and for a purpose God would approve. Otherwise, reject them as false prophets and wolves in sheep’s’ clothing who come to tear God’s people apart — as the people who claim to care about illegal aliens are doing.
The American Left has become an open enemy of God, and their use of Scripture to try and fool people into believing their lies is nothing more than the Serpent telling Eve that God did not say she would die if she ate of the Tree of Knowledge. It’s all lies! Lies told by people who cannot afford to be honest about what they want, or why they want it — and no one who has to work in the dark belongs to the Light!!!
