“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. …. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.” – 2 Thes. 2:3-8
Welcome to the End Times! Lawlessness abounds and the news media is full of one riot after another; riots over school shootings, riots over separation of children from illegal immigrants at the southern border, riots over police actions against criminals if they happen to be black, riots over so-called women’s rights, riots for the abolishment of ICE, and the list goes on. Of course, you never hear of any riots against homosexuals who break up church services or destroy businesses who happen to mention they believe in marriage being between a man and a woman. And you never hear of any riots against gangs who terrorize communities, such as MS13. (Does the ms stand for mentally small?).
I have a reasonable solution to the immigration problem but, I know few will listen to it because the riots and those responsible for them don’t really want to fix the problem – their purpose is to destroy this country. My solution may not fix the entire problem but it would sure help. It is to follow the Biblical admonishment –
“For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.” – 2 Thes. 3:10-12
Stop the free schooling, free medical treatment, free welfare programs, etc. Let those who come work to earn their own living. Certainly don’t allow them to enjoy the benefits of citizens, such as having driver’s licenses or voting, as they now do in two states. Let those who want to help them give their own time and money – then it would be a true work of charity. Government handouts which are paid for by taxpayers are not acts of charity, they are a socialistic redistribution of wealth, which ultimately will end in slavery of the populace to the government.
The Book of Genesis describes the first judgment of God on Egypt in the story of Joseph. God sent a famine in which the people looked to the government for help and here is the help they received: 1st – they spent all their money for grain, 2nd – they sold their land for grain, and 3rd – they sold themselves for grain. Instead of turning to God for help, they trusted in man’s government and as a result ended up in slavery to the government. You might ask, “How did the government get all the grain they sold to the people?” The answer is – they took it by taxation from the people in the first place!
The best solution is to turn to the Lord as King David wrote –
“I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous (those who follow God) forsaken or their children begging bread.” – Ps. 37:25
Silly American leftist Democrats don’t seem to realize this immigration crisis is just part of a larger plan to overcome the United States and eliminate its influence in the world (Or maybe they do!). A leading presidential candidate for Mexico recently called for a ‘mass migration to the United States’, even calling it a ‘human right’! If he really cared about these people, why not invite them to Mexico? Any separation of children from their parents is being done by parents who are breaking the law. In every country on the planet when a parent, be they mother or father, breaks the law they usually go to jail and are separated from their children. Does this mean we should never arrest criminals if they have children? Obviously not, the problem is law breaking parents, not the law enforcement who arrested them.
As the ‘spirit of lawlessness’ sweeps the world, one of the few countries still standing is the United States and we are this spirit’s target now. The United States is acting like a sort of ‘restrainer’ against all the devil would like to do. If we were weakened or gone, the devil would soon destroy the tiny country of Israel. That is why radical Islam calls the U.S. the ‘great Satan’ and Israel the ‘little Satan’. Have you noticed that liars always accuse everyone else to be liars? When I see so-called Christians marching in favor of this invasion of illegals, I marvel at their lack of Biblical understanding. They should better preach to them the Gospel and send them back to influence their own countries instead of encouraging them to break the laws in this country.
