The Illegal Immigration Invasion Of America:
Biblical Solutions To The U.S. Border Crisis
"But it shall come about, if you will not obey the Lord,
to observe to do all His commandments
and His statutes with which I charge you today,
that all of these curses shall come upon you and overtake you":
"The alien who is among you
shall rise above you higher and higher,
but you shall go down lower and lower."
"A people whom you do not know
shall eat up the produce of your ground and all your labors,
and you shall never be anything
but oppressed and crushed continually."
"Because you did not serve the Lord your God
with joy and a glad heart,
for the abundance of all things;
therefore you shall serve your enemies
whom the Lord shall send against you,
in hunger, in nakedness, and in the lack of things;
and He shall put an iron yoke on your neck
until He has destroyed you."
The Great American Era of Tribulations
The United States has always been a nation of great trials. Since the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and penned the United States Constitution, this country has faced impossible challenges. Yet, each challenge was always met by the American citizenry with a holy and tenacious determination to prevail. Our nation has produced the greatest army of men and women of valor that this world has ever known.
In the 21st century, our generation is faced with more trials at one time, than all past generations combined. Truly, this is the Great American Era of Tribulations. What has happened to America? Why are we troubled with so many dark enemies? Have we not always been the most generous country that the world has ever known? Was it not the American soldier that shed his precious blood for the liberation of Europe during World War II? Was it not our steel-like fortitude that brought down the evil Soviet Empire? At every turn, has it not been the generosity of the American people which has met the needs of every starving nation? Then why do we have so many enemies? The answer to this question lies in our ties to that which originally bound our Founding Fathers together, the Bible and an unshakeable belief in its author: Jesus Christ. Our current crisis on our nation's borders, lies not with the invading army of illegal immigrants, but with our nation's leaders who have divorced themselves from the same God that led the architects of our national creation.
The Invasion of America
For the first time since the days of the Revolutionary War, America is seeing foreign armies invade its sovereign borders. How has the most powerful nation in the history of the world succumbed to third world status when it comes to protecting its own borders? The largest army in the history of humanity, a military force of eleven million soldiers, was assembled in our nearest neighbor Mexico, and then sent in to invade America. Within twenty years, that army has completed their plot and has established combat posts throughout the United States. Foreign Islamic terrorists sabotaged American jet planes and used them to attack several U.S. cities in 2001, resulting in the destruction of a large portion of the Pentagon and the murder of 3,000 of our citizens.
Chinese industrials have invaded the American economy, thus allowing a Communist government to infiltrate and literally take the U.S economy hostage. Where the old Sovient Union failed, the Chinese Communists have succeeded, making America the largest debtor nation in history.
Socialist countries leftover from the Marxist dictatorships of Eastern Europe have infiltrated our school systems via the tolerance and diversity programs of radical homosexual activists. Now the atheistic cults established by Marx and Lenin have full access to all American children, displacing God with godless immorality, diseases and an endless trail of school shootings and murder. We are under seige with no repreive. "My God! My God! Why hast thou forsaken Me?" (Matthew 27:46)
Broken Borders - Broken Leaders
The border crisis in America is a direct reflection of the broken moral compasses that are instilled in the hearts of America's elected officials. Take for instance recently elected Congressman Brian Bilbray, one of the loudest voices in Congress regarding the border crisis. While Congressman Bilbray may be sounding the alarm about the Mexican invasion, he truly personifies the very reason that America finds herself in such dire straits. God will not honor or protect a nation that rebels against His word and laws. God's word clearly says that abortion is murder and homosexuality is an abomination. Both of these sins defile the land where those acts occur, thus bringing God's judgment upon that nation. Yet, Congressman Bilbray is one of the biggest Republican supporters of homosexuality and abortion in the congress.
Bilbray, who in utter hypocrisy claims to be a practicing Catholic, has been like homosexual Congressmen Mark Foley and Jim Kolbe, one of the biggest supporters of the radical homosexual Republican group, the Log Cabin Republicans. In 1998, Bilbray stood with the homosexual activists of the Texas Lob Cabin Republicans to blast the Christian principles of the Founding Fathers, by telling the radical group, "Don't give up, don't stop fighting for a better America and don't stop advancing the cause of equality and liberty that so many Americans from all walks of life share with you and me!" (http://www.logcabinwa.com/archive/98061501.shtml) The Log Cabin Republicans despise Christian Conservatives, deeming Christians to be the last "remaining obstacle" to homosexuals achieving "full equality" in America (http://online.logcabin.org/about/).
To further Bilbray's rebellion against this nation's Christian heritage, he joined the Log Cabin Republicans as a member of their national board of advisors along with gay Congressman Jim Kolbe, who is now embroiled in the Mark Foley scandal (http://online.logcabin.org/about/advisoryboard.html). Yet, Brian Bilbray is out decrying the crisis on our nation's borders. Bilbray cannot see that his repeated votes to fund the abortion mills throughout America that have murdered nearly 50 million babies, have helped remove God's hand of protection from our borders. Sadly, Bilbray will not bow to the will of God. He has already lied to the people that recently elected him, by breaking a pledge that he would not support new votes for the murderous enterprises of embryonic stem cell research. Right on cue with his history of supporting the abortion industry, Congressman Bilbray joined the Democrats in a recent vote to overturn President Bush's veto on new funding for embryonic stem cell research (http://www.flashreport.org/blog0a.php?postID=2006072411580379&authID=2005091915442370).
Like Brian Bilbray, Congressman Darrell Issa, a fellow federal legislator from San Diego County, has been a supporter of homosexuality within the Republican Party. Both Issa and Bilbray are aggressive supporters of the Log Cabin Republicans. In 2003, Congressman Issa attended this radical homosexual group's national convention (http://online.logcabin.org/photo_gallery/photo_gallery_2003_national_convention.html). This is an eyeopening look at why the Republican Party is now reeling from the current teen sex scandal surrounding predatory homosexual Congressman Mark Foley. While Issa will feign morality at election time, he is as insidious in his support for the GOP's more closeted homosexual agenda as Bilbray is, and yet he will be out there appeasing his California constituents with cries of securing the border.
God will not allow us to secure our borders so that we can have a protective barrier to encase a nation full of gross immorality in direct defiance to His word. We cannot have a secure nation full of sexual depravity, child abuse, murder and greed. Congressman Issa, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Congressman Bilbray and every other political leader must understand that they are the shepherds of this nation and as such, they have allowed godless wolves to feed on God's sheep. It is time! It is time! It is time! We must have a national discourse on the godless practices that have destroyed our Christian heritage. We must right this wrong. To not engage this dilemna God's way, is to throw America away into the ash heap with history's other long gone empires.
The Biblical Resolution To Our Border Crisis
"If my people who are called by My name
humble themselves and pray, and seek My face
and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven,
will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land."
II Chronicles 7:14
America is at her most important crossroads. Will America humble herself before the Lord God, or will she finish off the most unnecessary national suicide in history? What has America gained in her insidious quest for sexual anarchy? Homosexuality, pornography, prostitution, gambling, murder, rape, child molestations, illegal drugs, suicide, broken homes, broken marriages, corporate greed, paganism, witchcraft, and every other ungodly and poisonous fruit, have been the result of America embracing an ungodly experiment of abandoning her Christian heritage for one of secularized and venomous anti-christianity.
The Bible is very clear in its instruction on how to bring about a healing upon the land. As it is well articulated in the second book of Chronicles, the Lord God revealed to King Solomon, the wealthiest king in world history, the process for bringing about national healing. "If My people," God informs Solomon. God reveals that it is God's people that will initiate the healing of the land. Who are God's people? Congressman Bilbray claims to be a believer, a lifetime Catholic. Will he humble himself and stop supporting the killing of unborn babies? Will Congressman Bilbray humble himself and stop supporting sodomy as an acceptable sexual act? Will the two Mormon U.S. Senators from Utah, Senators Hatch and Bennett, stop supporting the financing of killing human embryos for corporate biological experimentations? These two senators claim that they believe in God. Yet, they both supported overturning President Bush's ban on new federal funding for embryonic stem cell research (http://www.sltrib.com/opinion/ci_4063343).
California Senator Bill Morrow and his wife Barbara claim to be Christians, yet they continue to support the biotech industry that is killing human life for embryonic stem cell experimentations. Will they humble themselves and get out of that morally repugnant compromise? Apparently not: Senator Morrow is now working to help Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to get reelected (http://www.coalitionsforarnold.com/c.fgLOIXOEKtF/b.1808023/siteapps/teampage/ShowPage.aspx?teamid=1362924). Schwarzenegger has polluted the entire state of California with more anti-christian, homosexual appointments, and the signing of more abortion and homosexual laws than any other governor in America. Hypocritically, professed Christian Bill Morrow is now serving as a coalition co-chair to help this evil governor stay in power.
Senator Morrow is another of those loud voices for securing the borders, but will he humble himself and start securing the lives of human embryos, rather than the profits of the biotech industry? Will Morrow stop helping Schwarzenegger and his wicked agenda to stay in power? Morrow's hypocrisy on seeking to secure the borders while helping contribute to the polluting of the morality of California is another example of the immorality being spread throughout America by its deceiving political shepherds.
Heaven Is Weeping Over America's Broken Condition:
An Unnecessary Judgment Is About To Commence
A screeching cry and a horrific trumpet is being sounded across the halls of eternity: It is the warning cry from heaven to America: Repent! Repent! For judgment and war are at hand. Our period of grace is dwindling to a dying gasp. Repent America from sexual immorality. Repent America from the murdering of 50 million babies. Repent America from your filthy marketeers, for your nation has become the biggest pornographic empire in the world, yet you want God's favor. This stench of hypocrisy lies at the doorsteps of silent pastors who have coexisted for a generation with the works of the devil while they have collected their large paychecks and pensions for preaching a diluted dogma that has no effect on a perishing nation. Oh, pastors, why have you held the hands of corrupted men, hand in hand, as the land has been defiled?
What wages have we earned for this unholy debacle? Will America continue to follow those that have led us down this path of degradation and demoralization? Or will we wake up from this bad dream and return to the one voice that this nation once listened to intently and was blessed abundantly by: the voice of the living God of the Bible?
The Lamenting Prophet
`Harvest is past, summer is ended,
And we are not saved."
The Prophet Jeremiah is a Biblical parallel to many Christians in America today, who have had to watch the demise of this great nation, as did Jeremiah in his time of ancient Israel. Ancient Israel, under King David and his son Solomon, was the most glorious and powerful nation in the world. The United States has had a similar existence, and in both, Israel and America, we can trace our abundant blessings to our founding on our Judeo/Christian heritage. Sadly, like the complete destruction of ancient Israel, America is seeing the same quick deterioration, due to the same rebellion to God. Israel would not listen to the Prophet Jeremiah as he cried out for the nation to repent before it was too late. The Israelite leaders would not heed the prophet's warnings. And America simply will not bow to God either.
Look at what the Prophet Jeremiah lamented:
But this is what I commanded them, saying,
"Obey My voice, and I will be your God,
and you will be My people; and you will walk
in all the way which I command you,
that it may be well with you."
Yet they did not obey or incline their ear,
but walked in the stubborness of their evil heart,
and went backward and not forward.
Jeremiah further confronted his nation's governmental leaders with a "contract with Israel" that clearly outlined a sure resolution for their impending destruction:
"For if you truly amend you ways and your deeds,
if you truly practice justice between a man and his neighbor,
if you do not oppress the alien, the orphan, or the widow,
and do not shed innocent blood in this place,
nor walk after other gods to your own ruin,
then I will let you dwell in this place,
in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever."
The leaders of Jerusalem would not listen to the Prophet Jeremiah. Despite the great catastrophies: the invasion of foreign armies, war, starvation, drought and murder throughout the nation, the leaders would not repent. Their rebellious mindset, their embracement of adultery, homosexuality, paganism and drunkeness, had brought them to a reprobate state that spelled their doom. Jeremiah writes this verse as Jerusalem, the once most glorious and powerful city in the world, fell to her enemies:
Now it came about when Jerusalem was captured
in the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah,
in the tenth month, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon
and all of his army came to Jerusalem and laid siege to it;
In the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month,
in the ninth day of the month,
the city wall was breached.
Then all of the officials of the king of Babylon
came in and sat down in the Middle Gate of Jerusalem.
The Impending American Destruction
I have spent the last several years crying out against the corruption in San Diego, as well as the California political system. I have seen some success. However, for the most part, political leaders, and elected officials, are simply not listening. There is a spirit of great moral pollution that has gripped the minds of the leaders of both Republican and Democratic Parties in California. They are both on a collision course with inevitable destruction. Neither party will stand up for God or righteousness. Both parties are giving way to a political correctness that is parading homosexuality, abortion, embryonic stem cell research, gambling, drinking and corporate greed, as if God is some kind of toy delegated to a child's long forgotten playroom.
The terrible consequences for all of us, both Jew and Christian, for the atheist and the liberal, is that God has removed more and more of his protective hand from our nation. We are tragically disintegrating into a place of borderless turpitude. We are now a nation without God's protection and without borders, thus every foreign army and every ungodly influence is now rushing in to set up their thrones of deviancy.
Hypocrisy by those who call out for border security, while they still watch pornography, allow the promotion of homosexuality, drive their daughters to abortion clinics, dishonor their spouses and children with their adulterous affairs, and line their pockets with bribes, is a stench in the nostrils of God. The name of Jesus Christ is not a credit card to be used during political campaigns to sell a diluted form of religion under the charade of "conservative family values."
It is now time for this nation to bow down to the ground in humble repentence and inspect the polluted soil in the hopes of retreving this once great nations's soul. We have defiled the land that God gave us. We must turn back to God if we want His sovereign justice to right the border crisis. This arrogrant chant of "securing the borders" without securing our religious heritage first, is only quickening our impending judgment.
