Illegal Invaders (it’s about way more than the southern border):
Genesis 11:1-9 (describing the people who had multiplied on the earth after the flood in Noah’s time): “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 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. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. 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. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord 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 (remember that word imagined). Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”
These people displayed a great level of foolishness and contempt against God in their attempt to make a name for themselves and to build this tower. They were united in their anti-God/antichrist attitude; and that unity led to this great effort. God saw this imagination (11:5- consider the popular 1970s song called Imagine, look up the lyrics and see what it is about if you are not familiar with it; you will see a good demonstration of how some things never change) and He intervened to scatter them and to confuse their language so that going forward there would be separate peoples with separate nations with their own language. Borders, language, and culture are God-ordained things in principle. To treat a nation like its border is a light thing, and as if its border laws are trivial or nonexistent, is at its core defiance of God. It is rebelling against the verdict of God which was handed down through the confusion and scattering at Babel. It is the telling of a lie in a practical way, as if fallen mankind is good and as if these people at Babel should be justified who were bent on rebellion in founding a one-world government where the knowledge of the true God and His ways would be suppressed. It is similar to how not covering up one’s body is now at its core defiance of God, since of course God decreed that man be clothed after he fell into sin; and He even deemed Adam and Eve’s fig leaves to be insufficient covering (hence He clothed them with the more thorough covering of animal skins).
It is a sign of increasing lawlessness that illegal immigration is so prevalent, and so often justified and enabled. Yet there are some particular forms of illegal invasion which are especially notable and have even greater spiritual implications. Those who have listened to all the previous messages know that I’ve spoken about how justifying Jews who reject Christ, and thinking that supporting modern Israel is siding with God, are concepts which are not right. A related concept which is commonly promoted among modern Israel, as well as by many modern evangelical Christian Bible schools and churches, is the concept that God gave the land of Canaan to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob’s natural descendants on an unconditional basis. They say that the Jews have an absolute right to dwell in the land. They essentially say that the Jews have a birthright to the land which is not conditioned on their obedience to God and their deeds. But however one tries to justify such a conclusion though, the plain testimony of God’s Word proves that this concept is a lie.
Leviticus 18:24-28: “Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things (the wicked activities which God had already rebuked prior in this chapter and the wicked things He rebuked throughout His Law): for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.”
Leviticus 20:22-23: “Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out. And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.”
Ezekiel 33:24-29: “Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land of Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the land: but we are many; the land is given us for inheritance. Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Ye eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall ye possess the land? Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile every one his neighbor’s wife: and shall ye possess the land? (the rhetorical nature of the question shows God considers the Israelites’ right to possess the land to be a conditional thing, since obviously He considers it ridiculous that they think they have a right to dwell in the land while committing wicked doings) Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence. For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through. Then shall they know that I am the Lord, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.”
God never set apart the land of Canaan for the Israelites for any other purpose than that His proper worship and righteous ways would be demonstrated there and prevail there through them. And over and over in the Hebrew Scriptures, we see God rebuking and chastening Israel over not living up to this calling- often severely judging them in their land. He eventually even removed them from the land to Babylon for 70 years to prove to them that He won’t tolerate anything less than what He brought them out of Egypt and into Canaan for.
Isaiah 5:12-16: “And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands. Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: But the Lord of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.”
Jeremiah 11:1-11: “ The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord saying, Hear ye the words of this covenant, and speak unto the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem; And say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant, Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God: That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O Lord. Then the Lord said unto me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear ye the words of this covenant, and do them. For I earnestly protested unto your fathers in the day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even unto this day, rising early and protesting, saying, Obey my voice. Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do: but they did them not. And the Lord said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.”
From the very time that Israel was on the verge of entering Canaan, God drove the point home to Joshua, who was their leader after Moses had died, that God was not going to show Israel special favor and give them Canaan just because they are natural descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Joshua 5:13-15: “And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my Lord unto his servant? And the captain of the Lord’s host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.”
It is evident who this was that was speaking to Joshua. It is similar to how God appeared to Moses at the burning bush.
Look at how Joshua then faithfully reiterated this lesson to Israel shortly before his death (in Joshua chapters 23 and 24). And he indeed included the land itself as something which would be taken from them if they were not obedient to God to yield the fruit of righteousness, which He set them apart to obtain from them as a people.
Reading from Joshua 23:14-16: “And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof. Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the Lord your God promised you; so shall the Lord bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you. When ye have transgressed the covenant of the Lord your God, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath given unto you.”
Reading then from Judges 2:7-12: “And the people served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the Lord, that he did for Israel. And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died, being an hundred and ten years old. And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnath Heres, in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill Gaash. And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the Lord, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel. And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim: And they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the Lord to anger.”
In departing from the Lord, Israel did not cease blessing Him with their lips nor incorporating His ceremonial worship among them to some extent. Yet they combined His worship with Pagan worship and overall did wickedly before Him. They frequently invented ways to justify sin in their own eyes when they found doing so to be convenient. And you see as the Scriptures unfold that this was a repeating pattern. It eventually led to the destruction of the first Temple and the Babylonian captivity. And then after Christ’s first coming, and the Jews’ subsequent rejection of Him (and further rejection of Him through the rejection of the faithful testimony of Himcontinued through His Apostles and the churches which they founded), it led to the destruction of the rebuilt Temple (on the same day of the calendar that the first Temple was destroyed on) and the scattering of the Jews throughout the world (much so at that time; and continually so over the next century, until extremely few remained in the land of Canaan).
Modern Jewish people as a whole are not less wicked. They continue to reject Christ (in general, as a people), the Great Light of the world, who has come and demonstrated that He is the Messiah, the great Ruler and Deliverer whom their own Law testifies of and points them to- the One who is the incarnation of God’s very Word which He gave to them!
John 5:39-47 (Jesus is speaking to His Jewish naysayers): “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honor from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honor one of another, and seek not the honor that cometh from God only? Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?”
The Jews generally were not from the heart following the righteous standards of the Law which God gave them, even though they exalted God with their lips and professed to be sons of God’s Law! Jesus preached the faithful interpretation of God’s Law. The Jews were generally not following that and they crucified Christ for bringing the actual righteous standards of God’s Law to light (John 7:7, etc)!
Matthew 15:1-20: “Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable. And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.”
Jesus was rebuking the Jews for not following the standards of their own Law which they should have been obedient to from the heart. Jesus always faithfully upheld God’s law in everything He did and taught.
Isaiah 8:20: “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”
Isaiah 42:21-25: “The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honorable. But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore. Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come? Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the Lord, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law. Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.”
Israel did not recognize and lay to heart that their afflictions as a nation (at least largely) came as a result of God’s judgments because they would not walk in His ways and were not obedient to His Law.
And all that is not to mention how modern Judaism is heavily reliant on the Talmuds (rabbinical commentaries) which often incorporate Kabbalistic concepts derived from Pagan occult philosophy and practices! So don’t even think that Judaism now doesn’t involve Pagan worship just as much or more than it did in ancient times when Israel tried to combine Yahweh’s worship with the worship of Baal and of the other gods of the nations which surrounded them! Despite these things, religious Jews, then and now, would claim to be repentant towards God. And many Jews, religious or not, believe that all Jews are safe from God’s wrath just because they are Jews, not heeding their own Scriptures which evidently and easily prove many times over that such is not the case! John the Baptist, Jesus, and the Apostles also shed light which proved and stated otherwise, reiterating the lessons which God had already taught in the Hebrew Scriptures (see Luke 3:1-14 and Acts 26:19-23 along these lines).
The Jews commonly professed to be repentant and obedient to God, but deep inside had a vain hope that their Jewish heritage, and their godly forefathers’ righteousness would save them (that hasn’t changed by the way, as was just mentioned). And professing Christians commonly are the same in principle. They commonly profess to love Jesus and be His obedient disciples, yet the Word of God is at odds with their life, often due to the same or similar sins which the Jews practiced both in Christ’s time and now. Incorporating Paganism into their worship and letting their worship be corrupted by the Pagan culture surrounding them, serving mammon and attempting to reconcile such serving God, justifying lasciviousness and other covetous behavior, following the trends and descending morality of the Pagan society around them, and blending in with and accepting a status quo involving such things, etc rather than separating from such and being a righteous testimony against it and faithfully demonstrating God’s ways in a crooked and wayward society (also see our video a few messages back on America’s Enmity with God). As the Jews commonly and falsely thought they had a right to the privileges of God’s covenant (including the land of Canaan) and thought that they would be spared from His wrath, though they walked contrary to God, so the professing Christian commonly and wrongly thinks they have an interest in Christ, along with all the blessings of His covenant, and think that they’ll be spared from His wrath, though they also walk contrary to God. Like the spirit of those illegally immigrating to America (or to any nation), and of those who justify and enable the same, and the spirit of the modern Jews who think they have a right to Canaan in their sin, this is also the spirit of illegal invasion!
God is after a holy, obedient people who demonstrates His righteous ways to the world all the same today.
Matthew 21:28-44 (Jesus speaking in the Temple in the final week of His life to the Jewish leaders who were questioning Him): “But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him. Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons (they hadn’t realized quite yet at this point that this parable was spoken against them). Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.”
The message of John the Baptist insisting on the fruit of repentance is just as valid now as it was to the Jews that John the Baptist preached to in person. And as John warned the jews who heard him not to say within themselves that they have Abraham as their father, for God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham, so now we should not say to ourselves “I have Jesus as my Savior (or even as my Lord and Savior)” if we don’t diligently flee from the wrath to come and do works meet for repentance, if we don’t indeed reckon ourselves to be dead with Christ to sin that we might live unto God through Him. The only response to His Gospel which actually saves is one which actually causes us to faithfully demonstrate the righteousness of God’s ways and to overall be consistent with the characteristics of a holy people set apart for Himself (see also 1 Peter chapter 2 along these lines).
And yet man tends to want God’s favor without death to self. Man wants to think that there is another way into God’s favor or wants to think that death to self for righteousness’ sake is past, when it has in reality been shrunk from and avoided. Man is in truth under probation from God, and has been put in circumstances which testify of the misery and dire condition of his spiritual state.
Genesis 3:16-24: “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them. And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”
Mankind’s overall miserable condition on earth reflects the truth that our fall in sin is deep and very serious, making it evident and logical that (if we’re lucky, at best- thank God it is so through the grace of Christ) there is a long and arduous road that must be entered, and traveled to completion, in order to be lifted out of this dire condition and restored to Paradise. We want to believe that our prognosis is not so bad, but choosing to believe in a lying prognosis is in itself fighting God and kicking against the verdict which He has stated. This is a key reason why places like Disney World are so evil (not even considering the occultic and perverted stuff which they also promote). The essence of it is the concept that “we’re in paradise and all is happy” when that is simply not so! I am not saying it is a sin to be happy and to live in a beautiful environment if no righteous duties are neglected to do that, but there is something deeper to the Disney spirit. It is a denial of reality and a phony paradise that is offered. Look at what they call their main theme park “The Magic Kingdom.” Regarding God’s everlasting kingdom, which is not make-believe, there is a symbolically bloody death to self and sin, and a vicious spiritual war to fight and overcome in, before that kingdom will ever be entered into and seen by a person. The spirit behind Disney and similar entities is the total opposite of that in terms of the effect they’re intended to have on men’s minds that is so contrary to the genuine way of salvation laid out in God’s Word, and also so utterly contrary to what is actually reality when all the smoke and mirrors, and all the pretending, is done away with.
And then in the very next chapter (Genesis 4) we see how Cain was okay with giving the extra of his own labor to God. But that was something he was comfortable with and could take pride in. Yet God didn’t accept that. It was not consistent with God’s directions. The way Cain devised was not a threat to his self-image and self-esteem (Proverbs 14:12). For Cain to actually put aside his own ideas of what he thought ought to please God, and to actually listen to directions which attacked his own perceived sufficiency, was more than he was willing to bear. He surely needed to get the best of Abel’s flock to make an offering that would have been acceptable to God; and that probably would have cost him more economically and bruised his ego badly too, since it would be an admission he needed his younger brother’s help. And it possibly would have bruised his ego for other reasons too. Cain was unwilling to forsake his confidence in his own intellectual ability, and even his own spiritual ability, to figure out what is proper worship before God. He had this self-sufficient, independent attitude that to forsake like he would have needed to, in order to obey God’s directions, would have killed him (in a figurative way). He was unwilling to suffer in such a manner and die to himself before God like he ought to have. (Another related passage is 1 Samuel 15:1-33).
Does God require more than just good words and attempts to please Him? Does He actually expect man to die to self and suffer to do righteousness, without cutting corners? Yes! Likewise, it is a great delusion to think that you are doing your best to show God you’re sorry and that you are intent on doing right now, when in truth you are not. Imagine the Prodigal Son going home and hoping to be received apart from his godly father’s terms, without having to be subject to his godly father’s rules and discipline, without being ready and willing to suffer in, and as a result of, such subjection. Don’t believe that God wouldn’t require you to suffer in order to do what’s right before Him. You’re not repentant when you have cutoff points which are derived from that concept or are influenced at all by that concept.
2 Corinthians 7:10-11a: “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge!.”
These very things which are essential characteristics of true repentance before God are considered unnecessary or are counterfeited by many religious institutions, by modern Judaism, and even by most churches which profess to be Christian as they militate against God and against His righteous standards being lived out without excuse and compromise. No wonder that is so, since at their very foundation is compromise with truth and catering to the unrighteous demands of man in order to have a thriving religious business.
There is a wall around God’s eternal kingdom which you can read about in Revelation chapter 21. And you can also read in the final chapters of the Bible how God has warned that those who practice deceit, those who defile, and those who in any way do wickedness in His eyes will not enter into that kingdom, but will rather have their part in the lake of fire which is without it. We must overcome sin through Jesus Christ. We must follow Him obediently, abiding in Him to be saved from sin’s guilt and power, faithfully aligning with and living by the Word of God, not loving our lives unto death. The Christian race must be lawfully entered into through Him and faithfully run by Him to the finish line within proper Christian boundaries. To hope for entrance to that kingdom without meeting the requirements to enter that kingdom is the essence of the spirit of illegal immigration.
And if you’re practicing, enabling, and/or justifying illegal immigration, or if you are supporting Israel in its conquest of a land which its people was ejected from long ago according to the will of God due to their rejection of Christ and their manifold sins (which they continue in as a nation to this day), then you are opposed to God’s ways and surely need to repent. You are in alignment with lawless deeds which have contributed to much theft and much innocent blood being shed. And the message sent by the enabling of illegal immigration, as well as by this blind, unconditional support of modern Israel, contributes to the enabling of all forms of lawlessness and increases the moral corruption of the earth significantly.
