NATION UNDER JUDGMENT - BORDERS

JUDGMENT BEGINS AT THE BORDERS

When a nation is under judgment, Deuteronomy 28 spells out how one can tell. We read of multiple examples in the early chapters of Exodus as the Pharaoh that opposed Jehovah came under judgment for his defiance against God's Will. Because of Pharaoh, food sources were destroyed, Egypt was littered with dead and dying livestock and animals, homes and public buildings were destroyed or heavily damaged because that's what judgments do -- they destroy and dismantle a nation's infrastructure and the economy. David Wilkerson wrote in several of his books the different signs of judgment upon a nation.

One of the curses of a nation that refuses to accept Jehovah is found in Deuteronomy 28 -- foreigners come over the border, and their coming impacts those already in the land.

That's exactly what we have today. Illegals are coming over the border in large numbers. It's an invasion, make no mistake about it.

This nation has been under judgment for some time. It's sad but many of my posts, even if they are only links, are about how this nation is under judgment. I know people don't want to hear it, but I can't help that. The people of Noah's time didn't want to hear it, either. Judgments that accelerated during Obama's time did not come to end just because Trump was elected President. Changing leaders can be a factor in an easing or even delaying of judgment (think Josiah), but ultimately, changing leaders isn't what ends judgment. Repentance is what ends judgment. Returning to God ends judgment. Abandoning idols and sin is what ends judgment. Accepting Jesus Christ is what ends judgment. I'm sorry, but electing Trump doesn't end judgment. His election has ended some of Obama's policies, and yes, has even reversed some of them, but his election has not ended judgment.

Judgment is meant to get our attention. To make us stop and think. Like Elijah and the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel. The Israelites had to choose who will be God. Israel had just come out of a horrific drought. It had been so bad it had been difficult to find even enough grass to feed the horses (I Kings 18:5). Rain had come. Now a showdown between good and evil. The people had to choose.

America has had one event after another the last few years. But she has not turned from her ways. In fact because of Obama's 'fundamental transformation' of America, we are even more hardened into our anti-God stance. America, particularly on the Left, has adopted a very militant hate-God, hate-Christian way of mind.

Jeremiah 30 tells us that a nation's sins can become an incurable wound.

That makes sense if a nation rejects the God of life. What is left but death?

Daniel Greenfield: Illegal Aliens Fatally Separate American Parents and Children

Look at Greenfield's article in light of Deuteronomy 28:32:

Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.

and verses 47-52:

Because thou servedst not the Lord thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand; (think about how far some of these people have come, including places in Asia and Africa)

A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young: (think of the MS-13 gang members)

And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee. (think of the continuing demands upon food stamps and welfare -- it can only go so far until it collapses)

And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the Lord thy God hath given thee. (think about how this is occurring at multiple points of entry, both legal and illegal)
