|Why have we opened our borders to "the sons of the East" (the Muslims and others) who detest our Christianity and hate the Jewish people who live in America, and who have been so protected up until now? It is because we are stupid and because outright religious liberals control the policies of our nation. Too, our leaders do not know the history of America. While we are not a theocracy, the nation was still founded by Christians for Christian purposes. |
The Puritans did not come here for gold and glitter. They left the civilized world of England and even Europe (they went from England to Holland to these shores) in order to have Christian liberty. God then blessed them with prosperity because of their intentions to think of Him first before they thought of prosperity.
Most of the farmers and fisherman had nothing when they arrived. During the first winter almost half of them perished from the cold environment. But they carved out a nation and made it prosperous. They did not come because the country was at first prosperous, as so many who are forcing their way into our nation!
Now we have opened the flood gates to allow folks with a Latin mentality or a Middle Eastern paganism to invade our nation, to take advantage of our prosperity. My question, why do they not remain in their own country and make it prosperous! They are here to take what we have developed and generally speaking, they contribute nothing! The foreign law-breakers are costing us billions to support them. They are importing immorality, drug cartels, murder, and raw hatred against Christianity.
What is happening to us reminds me of the Midianites and the Amalekites in the book of Judges. When the Israelites had developed the land, these two peoples would come in during harvest time and take what the Israelis had sown. Because of "the evil" of the Jews, "the Lord gave them into the hands of Midian for seven years" (Judges 6:1). He is giving us into the hands of the enemy because of the sins of America.
When the Israelis had sown the land "the Midianites and the Amalekites came "with the sons of the east" to go against the Jews (v. 3). Again, think of America! They came up "against" the Jews "and destroyed the produce of the earth," and "left no sustenance in Israel as well as no sheep, ox, or donkey" (v. 4). They brought their livestock to eat up the crops "like locusts for number, both they and their camels were innumerable, and they came into the land to devastate it" (v. 5).
As some in America are doing today, "the sons of Israel cried to the Lord on account of Midian" (v. 8). God sent a prophet who said to the people: I brought you out of Egypt "from the house of slavery" (v. 8) "from the hands of all your oppressors, and dispossessed them before you and gave you their land" (v. 9).
The Amalekites were the descendants of Esau and the Midianites were the descendants of Abraham's wife after Sarah, Keturah (Gen. 25:1-4). What goes around comes around! The Muslims are distantly related to the Jewish people! And they are bringing woe to this nation as well as to the Jews in the Holy Land. The troubles Israel had came upon them because they "had not obeyed the Lord" (Judges 6:10). So with this nation! – Dr. Mal Couch (Apr., 10)
