We have a crisis of the nations of spectacular proportions. Debates rage over immigration, refugees, and even the very right of that thing called a nation to exist. Neither side of the binary poop parade called politics has any answers. Let us go to the word of God for the answer, because He is the only One who has the answers.
Before there were nations.
Nations did not always exist. Man once existed in the state of nature. Adam and Eve did not have to answer to government. They only answered to God in the garden, and they broke the only rule He gave them. The result of this rebellion was that paradise was lost. Government did not immediately come into existence. People did “whatever was right in their own eyes (i.e Judges 17:6).” When it was time for judgment, God brought the Great Flood as judgment (Genesis 6-9).
At the end of the Flood Noah landed on Ararat in what is now Turkey. As the human race grew a desire for a one world government and a one world religion emerged. They moved from Turkey to Shinar (Babylon) and set up Etemenanki, a Ziggurat or house of worship that is better known as “The Tower of Babel.” This was birthed in a desire to make man into god on earth in the form of a one world religion and a one world government. They wanted to “build us a city…make us a name (Gen 11:4).” This is in fact the spirit of Babylon. A more detailed account of the history of this evil system can be found in my book Mystery Babylon Rising.
Needless to say, this displeased the Lord. This is what He had to say concerning the matter.
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. 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.
The Lord understood the dangers of a one world government and one world religion unhinged from the restraints that His Law would provide. Such a system would ignore any concept of inalienable rights given by a creator. In such a system rights would be seen as nothing more than constructs of government. What happens if a one world governmental system with a monopoly on religious, military, social, economic, and police power goes rogue. There would be absolutely nothing the people could do about it. The existence if numerous threats to freedom globally should give us pause about whether we want a one world government. Most nations of the West have gutted freedom of speech through speech codes that crush all dissent from the party line. The West has a burgeoning police state problem. Do we trust a world order where many of the leading politicians are c0nnected to a billionaire pedophile and have spent time on the Lolita Express.
Two reasons why nations exist
God created nations as a deterrent to the incorrect-able excesses of a global police state. Ambitions for world domination or other harmful behaviors by one nation can be countered by other nations. God created nations as system of checks and balances. Genesis 10 documents the creation of the ancient nations. Three times we see the phrase “every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.” According to verse 32, this is referring to the process by which God divided the nations after Flood at the Tower of Babel. This describes an organic process of nation building. God divided the languages along genetic and family lines. Nations formed around a common culture, a common language among a common group of people with closer family and genetic ties. This path to nations building would produce a sense of people identifying with their nation as an extended family and a sense that the purpose of the existence of the nation is to promote the common wealth of its people. This fact sets up the second purpose of the existence of a nation: promoting the general welfare of its people.
Today there is a mistaken notion that nations must tend to the general welfare of all people globally. It has been vogue to twist Scripture toward this end. People have cited Leviticus 19:33-34 as a proof text to argue that the Bible requires opens borders.
And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him. But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
There are several problems with this interpretation. One is that the modern concept of open borders and fluid definitions of nationality simply did not exist at the time of the authorship of this passage. Nationality was thoroughly tethered to ethnicity. An example of how his was so thoroughly ingrained can be found in the Greek word translated “nation” in the New Testament. It is ‘ethnos’ which is also the root word for the modern English word ‘ethnic.’ The idea of open and ethnically agnostic nations is simply not in view here. The point being made was that nations must give foreigners who dwell within the nation the same human rights as native born citizens. There is another thing to keep in mind here that is rooted in an observation gleaned from studying the Mosaic Law: some laws have instructions to the community for enforcement and others do not. The obvious implication of these distinctions is that not all of the laws in the Mosaic Law were intended to invoke the police power of the community. Leviticus 19:33-34 does not instruct the community to enforce it. As such it is analogous to a Congressional or legislative resolution which gives an official definition of morality but is not actually enforceable. It was only intended to as moral instruction to Israelites on how to treat their neighbors who are aliens. It did not invoke or inform the use of the police power of Israel.
Leviticus 19:33-34 does not address the question of who is allowed to come within the borders. There are numerous other passages that do. We know from the book of Joshua in its entirety that the Canaanites were not allowed to live within the land and that the first act of the Israelites when they entered the land was to wipe out the Canaanites. There was no open border policy for Canaanites. Israel’s reputation for being ruthless closed to Canaanites was so reknowned that Gibeonites resorted to deception to trick the Israelites to enter into a covenant of peace with them (Joshua 9).
The obligations of nations.
Nations are obligated first and foremost to their own citizens. Romans 13:4 tells us that governing authorities are God’s servants “for your good.” Government exists for the general welfare of the governed, thus nations exist for the benefit of the people they govern, which are the people that make up its body politic. Nations do not have obligation to individuals who are outside of its body politic and outside its borders.
Due to the organic nature of nations being built around a common familial relation and divided along lines of language and culture, nations should be good neighbors to other nations, seeing them as brothers and cousins and the family of humanity that descended from Noah. Nations should only act in the vital interests of their people and refrain from acts of aggression against nations and individuals who do not pose a threat to those vital interests and limit just wars to advance only those vital interests. Because nations are grounded in familial human relations, the common humanity of all should be respected in every act that nations do. While aliens living within a nation do not share in the same civil rights as citizens, they do have the same human rights as citizens.
Current immigration crisis manufactured by the Mystery Babylon New World Order
The current immigration crisis is a scheme of the New World Order to destroy national civilizations and replace them with a one world civilization, a one world government, and a one world religion. A two-prong attack is being used here. First, the major powers bomb the tar out of as many nations as possible. Second, the same globalist elites who sponsored the bombing campaign tell the citizens of the countries that they are obligated to abolish their borders and let as many refugees as they can cram in, and if they object it is because they are Nazis. Nazism itself was sponsored by leading industrialists in the West for the purpose of poisoning the well against nationalism so that the New World Order could be brought in. In this fight it is the New World order globalists who are showing themselves to be as ruthless as Hitler and Stalin and not those who want to keep the sovereignty of their nations intact.
The result of promoting this out of control immigration is that the national civilizations of the countries hosting these refugees will collapse due to the sheer numbers of people and the clash of cultures that will inevitably happen. It also collapses the countries that the refugees come from due to “brain drain” of the best talent. The endgame is to create a crisis so severe that nation civilizations collapse and the only answer left is to bring in a one world government, one world civilization, and a one world religion.
The Lord’s Plan for future open borders, and why we should oppose the current one.
The Bible actually speak about open borders, albiet a much different message than that of the Babylonian New World Order. Zephaniah 3:8-9 speaks of the return to a “pure language.”
Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy. For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.
When does God gather the nations for such judgment? This is referring to Armageddon and the return of Christ. It is after this He will return a pure language. Christ Himself will reverse the curse laid at the Tower of Babel. He will restore a common language to the earth. Isaiah 19 also speak of this
In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the LORD of hosts, which he shaketh over it. And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt, every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the LORD of hosts, which he hath determined against it. In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the LORD of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction. In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them. And the LORD shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the LORD in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the LORD, and perform it. And the LORD shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the LORD, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them. In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.
The first fifteen verses speak of the judgment of Egypt, one so severe that her entire civilization collapses due to fear ( vs 1-3.) In verse 16 it speak of Judah being a terror to Egypt. When has Judah ever been such a terro0r to Egypt that her whole civilization collapses? This has not happened yet. This will happen when Christ assumes His Throne in Jerusalem upon His return.
The text refers to Egypt having the same language as Canaan. The text speaks of open borders in the form of a highway from Egypt to Assyria. Assyria is often a short hand for Babylon and was the living head of Mystery Babylon during Isaiah’s lifetime. This is therefore a reference to the entire world with open borders after the destruction of Mystery Babylon and the dragonous beast system.
The current move to open borders is a conspiracy of the “kings of the earth” to conspire against the Lord and His Anointed, Jesus Christ( Psalm 2), to establish an evil system and a coming world ruler who will claim to be god on earth (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4) and demand worship (Rev 13). Jesus Christ will destroy this evil system at His Coming.
