In Ezekiel 22:30, “And I sought for a man among them, who would build a wall and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found none.” In all of the land of Israel, there was no man, nor any group of men who had the courage to stand up for righteous living.
Not one of the last five presidents (Bush Sr., Obama, Bush Jr., Clinton and Carter) have had the leadership skills to solve the immigration problem. Every single one has kicked the can down the road. Only President Trump has had the courage to stand up against the globalists who are pushing a one world government with open borders to destroy our sense of nationality and classify us as citizens of the world.
This wicked plan cheapens the idea of the American identity and culture. As we watch this utter humanitarian disaster unfold on our southern border, a man-made disaster being pushed and controlled by globalists, it is time to gain more insight from the Bible.
We learn from the Bible that borders were God’s idea, and one is not to be crossed without permission. Crossing a border without permission is like breaking in the back door of a house to help yourself to all the goodies instead of being invited in by the owners through the front door. You might get to eat either way, in the same house and from the same cupboard, but in one case you would be doing something that will land you in jail. If you come invited, you will be following the rule of law.
The Bible makes it crystal clear that national sovereignty, including defined borders, is God’s idea. In Acts 17:26, we read, “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.” Paul’s point here is that God guides the history of all men and nations. All men come from one source, from God Himself. All men have the same blood, different from animal blood. God shows no partiality to one person over another.
Paul says that all men and nations are determined a time to live and are given an exact place within which to live. God rules over all, guiding, directing and keeping everyone within certain bounds. Two things we are told by this scripture, we are under God’s sovereign control, how long a nation lasts and where its borders are.
The verb translated, “having determined,” is the Greek verb “horizo” from which we get the word, “Horizon.” It means to mark out or to define. So, God has marked out and defined the borders of each country. Our southern border is there by God’s design. To disregard it, to treat it as if it were not there, to regard it as something not worth respecting and defending is an insult to the God who put it there for our benefit. Each nation’s sovereignty is marked by its borders, and each nation has the moral right to decide who will be given permission to enter its sovereign territory.
My friends, borders are biblical and are there by God’s sovereign design. Borders are to be respected by everyone including the radical left who are pushing a one world government with open borders.
