Hebrews 13:2. “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.”
Matthew 25:35. “For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in.”
Leviticus 19:33,34. “When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God.”
Psalm 146:9. “The Lord protects the strangers; He supports the fatherless and the widow; but He thwarts the way of the wicked.”
In light of the unsteady and frightening climate of today’s massive borderless refugee situation, this last passage from Psalms needs to be carefully and prayerfully pondered! Not everyone who comes to the front door, or creeps in over the back fence, is there by divine appointment! Let us not be gullible! For does not the thief come to rob, kill, and destroy?
The sympathy card, however, can easily be played upon any with a soft heart, a lack of discernment, and without knowledge of how things actually work – the naive in other words. You will be misled if you do not plug in your head! Spiritually we need to have a heart ultra sensitive to only the voice of the Holy Spirit, as to whom we let into our space – since the “powers that wannabe” are using this soft-headedness to smuggle in people who have in mind the overthrow of the West in general, and the USA specifically.
Deported, struggling, needy people are one thing. Those primed and programmed to do harm – being thrown into the mix to stir up strife and discord, to create hell wherever they go, who hate the West and Christians – are not actually refugees! They have been planted into the West with no good intentions! We have to understand the whole picture and not be deceived or confused into some idea that what’s politically correct is actually promoting the gospel of Jesus Christ!
Nothing could be further from the truth! Many unwitting Christians have swallowed these political ideologies hook, line, and sinker – along with a lot of other non biblical, socially destructive constructs. If these go unchecked, they will dismantle our nation, the godly law of the land, and the high Western culture which has flourished since the Renaissance in Europe and then America. Why?
America is a nation under divine judgment. Make no mistake about it. 60 million abortions (murder of the innocents) since 1973, overall moral deterioration, and the “legalizing” of gay marriage have set this nation outside the protection of divine grace! This is now a nation that worships self, convenience, pleasure, and soft living. One could blame the Supreme Court and say, “We had nothing to say about these policies.” But let’s put it this way: the store would not exist if there were no customers. Planned Parenthood, for example, would have no takers if people respected themselves by insisting upon sexual integrity, and married couples procreated children when they were ready and able to support them!
The foregoing influx is a Trojan Horse brought in to bring down the USA. Yet the moral fabric of society and the strength of the traditional family had to be disintegrated first.
It amazes me how people look to Donald Trump to “make America great again”. Certainly it is time for a strong leader, but is this person someone to be relied upon at such a time as this? No one person should be looked to as if he were some sort of god to accomplish this.
Yet this is exactly what a lot of Christians are promoting, when they ought to be admonishing the entire body of Christ to repentance, prayer, and supplication (being about our Father’s business) especially their so-called “prophets” who claim to have “visions” and “words from the Lord” that Trump is God’s man! Time will tell. (Not that the opposing party has anything constructive to offer either!) It’s time to make America Godly again!
Matthew 7:15 – “Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”
1 John 4:1 – “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
Here’s the Scriptural “formula” to begin to get the job done:
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” [2 Chronicles 7:14 ]
It is necessary to be of one mind with God for Him to “thwart the way of the wicked”. This land prides itself on being a “Christian” country. We cannot rest on such laurels. What is America now – not 1620, or 1776, or even 1950? we must ask ourselves. Where’s the call to repentance, to prayer, to fasting, to Godly living? Instead many look for a savior who can simply perpetuate their lifestyle while their itching ears are scratched by their “prophets”.
Some of us are still questioning, was the USA ever actually “Christian”? That seems to be defined according to who’s answering the question, per personal opinion based upon access to information. How much of that narrative is the truth? Yet experience reveals – at least to those of us who’ve been eye witnesses to the sweeping changes of the last half century – that the spiritual and moral fabric of our once great nation began to be dismantled noticeably in the 1960s. We also have history from all over the world which shows that a pattern of decay always follows delusion and decadence.
It is time to stop playing church. It is time to once more be the house of prayer. It is time to cast out that which has made the church a den of thieves! We have to learn to take prayer, obedience to Christ, and spiritual warfare seriously, and to hear His voice – that still small voice of the Holy Spirit! And then heed His will. For God alone is able to turn this spiritual tsunami around. God alone can and will thwart the way of the wicked. This is the key.
Or has the light of the world gone out? Is the city no longer set on the hill? Has the salt lost its savor?
