The Borders Are Wide Open And The Enemy Has Come Freely In
It's already happened, and elections are not going to change it. "The gates of your land are wide open for your enemies; fire shall devour the bars of your gates." Nahum 3:13 Open borders are a judgment from God upon a society steeped in sin. And so it is when God brings judgment upon a people. Truly, the gates of our land are wide open for our enemies, and through those borders they come, some bringing disease, some bringing jihad. There's nothing to stop them. The people are asleep, America doesn't realize what's going on in her land because a "spirit of stupor" is upon the people. “God has given them a spirit of stupor, eyes that they should not see and ears that they should not hear...” Romans 11:8 Scriptures tell us that in the last days there will be a great deception that will come upon the world: "The coming of the lawless one (the Antichrist) is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with ALL UNRIGHTEOUS DECEPTION among those who perish, BECAUSE they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved." 2 Thessalonians 2:9-19 Surely it is upon us even now. What has happened in this country is just staggering. Who would have believed what we see now could happen in America the great? But it has. All that is good they call evil and what is evil they call good. What has been happening in America is even worse than the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah. So God has given them over to the lie. They are blinded so that they CANNOT see and ...they will be condemned. Don't put your confidence in electing your favorite political party if judgment has been declared upon the land. And it has. It's only so obvious. Can you see? vs 11-12: "And for this reason God will send them STRONG DELUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE THE LIE, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." To those who understand what is going on – it's shocking to see what the world is saying and doing. Gary Stearman, a Bible scholar, said that the Scripture which says that in the last days “perilous” times will come – the word perilous can be translated “insane.” As we watch what they say and the incredible things they do – we've said said SO many times, “this is insane” - not as a comment ...it's the truth. God has raised up many men warning about coming judgment. They refuse the warnings, they insist on their way, and they walk blindly into condemnation. It's their choice. So our borders are open, righteousness is silenced, gross and defiant sin is everywhere, and judgment is unavoidable. Elections are not going to stop this. It's not a social thing, it's a God thing. When he declares judgment elections won't stop it. There have been wars, rumors of war, earthquakes, famine, pestilence (disease) upon OUR world, all taking place concurrently, the signs Jesus told us to watch for which tell us we're in the last days. Scoffers say these things have always been, and that's true - every generation has had its great war or great earthquake or great fire or great flood. But Jesus said that the sign of the last days is that they will ALL happen in the same generation, as birth pangs in a woman in labor, becoming more frequent and stronger as the time of sorrows comes upon the world. We're looking at it. At the end of a strong word like this I usually plead for sinners to come to repentance and many times I even write out a prayer to help them verbalize it. But not this time - because it's useless to try to persuade those who have been given over to deception. It's not that they won't see, it's that they CAN'T see. It's not that they refuse to hear, it's that they CANNOT hear. There's nothing more to say to them. Friends, we are in “the time of sorrows.” But take courage – the labor pains are going to produce the birth. We're going home.
