How To Solve the Immigration/Refugee Problem
Weekly Sermon 2 October, 2016
One day everyone shall live under the same laws – the laws of God.
One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you. (Exo 12:49)
In Exodus 12.1-20 we read of the Israelites that were commanded to keep the Passover. We also read of the killing of the first born of all the Egyptians in the land. And the plague shall pass over those who have the blood of the lamb on their doors. Keep this in mind as you read on.
And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever. (Exo 12:24)
This is not a one time thing but an ordinance that we should keep forever.
Note: For this study and many others that will be forthcoming on CFEM website, it’s necessary that you have an understanding of who the Israelites are today. This, of course, includes the Tribe of Juda. For further biblical research, check out: Odds Are Your Are Israel
And the LORD said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof: (Exo 12:43)
We read that we shall have one law is repeated again in Leviticus 24.22
Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God. (Lev 24:22)
In Leviticus 24.11-14 we read of what happens to someone who broke the law concerning blasphemy.
And the Israelitish woman’s son blasphemed the name of the LORD, and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:) (Lev 24:11)
And they put him in ward, that the mind of the LORD might be shewed them. (Lev 24:12)
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, (Lev 24:13)
Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him. (Lev 24:14)
When it’s spoken that there shall be one law for all the land, this is for those called Christians today, as well as those who are strangers. In other words, IF strangers are to live in the land they have to obey the same laws as God’s children. For example, if a Christian murdered someone and he is found guilty by trial, he is to be put to death. Now, anyone else who is not a Christian is under the same law. There should be no preferential difference. We all agree to this. This applies to ANY of God’s laws that are broken.
Yet, what do we often see happen? We see people let off with a lighter sentence if they break a law. It could be of theft, of a traffic ticket, a murder, or whatever else you can think of. And these people who are let off with a lighter sentence are often those who are not white, not Christian and not even legally in the country. We are starting to see a lot of this with Muslims – many of them fit the category of NOT:
- legal in the country
For example, in America, many illegal Mexicans have a traffic accident and are let off scot free. But if it was a White Christian he would be charged accordingly. If a black man attacked a white man he would not be charged with a “hate crime,” but if it was a white man who attacked the black man the white man would be charged with a “hate crime.” In other words, it’s reverse discrimination. But under Christian laws this will not the be the case.
As a side note, there should be no thing as a “hate crime” at all. If the crime was theft, that is the crime and that’s it – nothing added to it! But since we do have what is called a “hate crime” it’s all one sided.
As in Exodus, we read the same thing in Leviticus…
Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God. (Lev 24:22)
The Christian and the stranger (which means the non-Israelite who happens to reside in the land) have to obey the same law. Many years ago, even though we were under man-made laws, at least all people had to obey the same laws and if they didn’t they were penalised the same. Today, it’s not the case. IF we, as a nation, were obedient to God’s laws, we would have His laws as the laws of the land and we would all have to obey it or pay the price accordingly. We can all see that this is just, that it’s divine IF we live under God’s laws – which we are admonished to do in the Old and New Testament.
When you go to your local pastor or talk to the average Christian today they would agree with this. But what they would not agree with is that we should live under God’s laws. In their minds, to live under man’s laws, for some reason, that is OK. How they reason this, I don’t know. Now, I know that there are many people who are so liberal, so “politically correct” that they believe in preferential treatment to the non-White and to the non-Christian.
Just keep this in mind as we read more, then I’ll get back to what I just said.
Now, we read in Numbers 15.1-16 an offering to the Levities, who were the priests in Israel. This is to take care of the priests. In Numbers 15.15-16 we read:
One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD. (Num 15:15)
One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you. (Num 15:16)
All that are born of the country shall do these things after this manner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD. (Num 15:13)
You may by now see what I’m getting at. That this “one law in the land” is that everyone must follow. Therefore IF there are to be others that are living in America, Germany, France, for example, they must be Christian and support the pastors; they must follow Christian laws. After all, we have read in the Bible that there is to be one law for all the land. This “one” is in the plural by the way. Therefore, you can’t have “people doing their own thing,” as what we’ve been doing for many, many years now. So, with living under Yahweh God’s Laws, Statues and Judgements, anyone who is not a Christian (House of Israel/Juda) must comply with this. Those that are already living in the land must comply.
Buddhists, for example, can’t bring their idols in the country. Those who worship a different god, not matter what they think otherwise, can’t come into the country. After all, these are the rules of God IF we are to live under God’s laws.
If you were to go to someone’s house and the dress was formal, you would be told that before you came. If you don’t like it, then stay out. Well, the same thing when entering a Christian country. Those who don’t like it will not be allowed to come. Therefore, how many Muslims, for example, would you think would come to France or Holland if they were told at the border, “Here are the rules. And if you don’t follow them, here is what will happen. And when you are here you have to support the Christian ministers.”
In the beginning you’ll have those who say they’ll agree and think that they can get away with whatever. You’ll have those who think that they can get away with raping women. But when they are caught, found guilty and put to a public death by the spilling of the blood, how many do you think will continue in their belief – regardless of what Muhammad said? Very few.
If you have those who already live in your country and say or do something that is blasphemy against the God of the Bible, how long do you think others will want to stay here? Not long or they will have to convert.
This is NOT conversion by the sword because people will have to agree to live under God’s laws or leave the country. If the non-Christians continue to live in the country and break a law that has capital punishment as the judgement they just have to pay the price. It’s like if you murder someone, the penalty is death (when it used to be). It doesn’t matter if you believe in the judgement or not, you pay the price.
Conversion by the sword is like what the Muslims do. “You are a Christian, you must die.” What God says is, that here are the laws of the land. If you break certain ones of them, you die. Here are the laws of the land to you immigrants. If you want to live here, you have to obey them or pay the price. Then the people have a choice as to whether to come and visit or not; those that are already here to stay or to leave.
In short, there is one religion in the land. If you were to tell this to the average Christian they would say how horrible it is. They would say, “We have freedom of religion in the country; this is what the Constitution says!” They will act holier than Thou.
For anyone who knows the Bible will tell you that when Israel was in obedience, such as under King David, there was only one religion. There was none of this stuff of having Judaism or Islam in the country. There were no cults like the Jehovah Witness, either. (Note: Judaism is NOT Old Testament and it’s NOT the books of Moses; it’s the Talmud, but that is another story, another book.)
Here is what the future of Israel will be:
For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: (Heb 8:8)
Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. (Heb 8:9)
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: (Heb 8:10)
And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. (Heb 8:11)
It will be so ingrained in us that God’s laws will be in our hearts. This is what will happen in God’s Israel nations. This is what we were suppose to do when we left our captivity in Egypt but we didn’t keep it. In the Latter Days, we will keep it.
This keeping of the new covenant is for the Israel nations not for the heathen nations. God, in the above verses is talking to His People.
Read here of when the king of Israel turned to God, what the king did, what the people did and how God blessed them:
And the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded: (2Ch 15:1)
And he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The LORD is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you. (2Ch 15:2)
Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law. (2Ch 15:3)
But when they in their trouble did turn unto the LORD God of Israel, and sought him, he was found of them. (2Ch 15:4)
And in those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in, but great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries. (2Ch 15:5)
And nation was destroyed of nation, and city of city: for God did vex them with all adversity. (2Ch 15:6)
Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded. (2Ch 15:7)
And when Asa heard these words, and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage, and put away the abominable idols out of all the land of Judah and Benjamin, and out of the cities which he had taken from mount Ephraim, and renewed the altar of the LORD, that was before the porch of the LORD. (2Ch 15:8)
And he gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and the strangers with them out of Ephraim and Manasseh, and out of Simeon: for they fell to him out of Israel in abundance, when they saw that the LORD his God was with him. (2Ch 15:9)
So they gathered themselves together at Jerusalem in the third month, in the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa. (2Ch 15:10)
And they offered unto the LORD the same time, of the spoil which they had brought, seven hundred oxen and seven thousand sheep. (2Ch 15:11)
And they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul; (2Ch 15:12)
That whosoever would not seek the LORD God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2Ch 15:13)
And they sware unto the LORD with a loud voice, and with shouting, and with trumpets, and with cornets. (2Ch 15:14)
And all Judah rejoiced at the oath: for they had sworn with all their heart, and sought him with their whole desire; and he was found of them: and the LORD gave them rest round about. (2Ch 15:15)
Here we learn that the king turned to God, that the people turned to God. All the idols were destroyed. Imagine if we did this in America! Not only would idols have to be destroyed but that would include books and films that advocated anything that was anti-Christian. That would include other types of worship and their temples or synagogues, too. This also includes all laws that are contrary to God’s Law.
You’ll also notice that Israel had trouble when they did NOT obey God, but they obeyed God they had peace all around. Think of all the trouble we have (or whatever nation your live in). So, if our leaders really don’t want war and if they really do want peace, we have to obey God’s laws. And part of obeying His laws is NOT to have other religions in our land.
As it concerns immigration, this will stop all those coming in AFTER a public display of what will happen to those who act contrary to Christian laws. And for those who are already citizens or born here, the same thing applies to them.
By allowing all these other people having their own religion and “doing their own thing,” they will have to either stop it or leave the country. For those who don’t leave, they will think twice after they see a few of their cohorts suffer.
If someone of another religion wanted to move to America, in order to do so, they would have to:
- leave their religion
- burn their books
- destroy their idols
- financially support Christian teaching
- follow Yahweh God’s laws
How many do you think will want to come here? Probably none. Also, there would be no:
- paid housing
- free education
- free medical service
- free pension
- free food stamps
With this in mind, how many do you think will come? Probably none!
With American immigration policy as it was pre-1965 when only Europeans could come along with some Mexicans -for the most part – how many do you think will come?
So, you see, solving the immigration problem is really a simple thing WHEN you do it God’s way. The same applies to all the other problems we have, whether it be economic, or crime in the street. Doing it God’s way is simple, fast and effective. It also saves many, many lives. It saves the lives of those who would otherwise be the victim or those who perpetrated the crime. And isn’t that what we all want? Saving innocent lives and giving a chance for those who would commit the crimes to change? Yes, this is what all normal people want.
For those Christians who still can’t get it in their heads and say how terrible this would be. I say, really? Colonial America lived under Christian law for the most part. As sinners – which we are all – this was the closest thing that we mortals could get. We had Christian biblical laws as the laws of the land – just read the colonial laws to check it out for yourself. Well, at this time, we had peace and prosperity. Women could walk the streets at night, people didn’t have to lock their doors, you didn’t have anti-Christain books, etc. Yet, the wise people of other nations flocked to this country as they saw this as “The Daughter of Zion, The New Jerusalem.”
Here is the prophet, Azariah, told the king, Asa, what to do. Whereas King Saul did not follow the prophet Samuel, and therefore lost the kingdom to David. The question is, will Donald Trump listen to a prophet that comes to him or will he continue to do it his way? Will Trump (assuming he becomes President) do it man’s way or God’s way?
You cannot have revival in a land with un-Godly people and with all manner of beliefs.
It had been many years that Israel – at the time of Asa – had un-Godly ruler ship. But when the people saw that the Yahweh was with the king, and that the king had destroyed the idols, the people were with him. It was THEN that God gave rest to the nation.
Here is a prophecy in Isaiah chapter 10.
For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction. (Isa 10:25)
And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt. (Isa 10:26)
What was as the “manner of Egypt?” If we go back to that time and place when God had all the first born of Egypt killed, it will be like it in the end times. Think of all the rich and powerful people who are enslaving us, who are spreading all this death and destruction; think of all the anti-Christian teaching. Think of the bankers that make money off of usury and think of those who slowly kill people with all the poisons of the pharmaceutical industry. Now think of what would happen when their first born child mysteriously dies. They will be in total shock to find out that their heir – heir to their evil empire – has died. Maybe then they will believe in the God of the Bible and DO as He says.
Also, as in “like manner of Egypt” the Israelites gained their freedom as they marched out of Egypt. The killing of the first born and the release of the captive Israelites happened in one day! Our deliverance will happen in one day, too.
The enemies of God think that they are so strong, so well entrenched that they think they will remain in power forever. But that God will break their power in one day and this will show the antichrists who has the power and it will show God’s People, too.
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. (Isa 11:9)
Now, this is an end-time prophecy. For never in the past has all the earth be filled with the knowledge of Yahweh. And the metaphor used is really descriptive: “as the waters cover the sea.” The knowledge of God will be so complete, it’ll be like the waters covering the sea.
And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt. (Isa 11:16)
Here it is one more time: “as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.”
And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. (Isa 2:2)
“And all nations shall flow to it,” this means because God’s Law is the law of the land; that Christianity is our faith. People will not be flowing to it because of the heathen religions but because of Israel obeying God’s Word.
