Do It The Right Way
By Dennis Huebshman
John 10:1, “I tell you the solemn truth, the one who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a robber.”
John 10:2, “The one who enters by the door is the Shepherd of the Sheep.”
Before I start, I know the above verses are not directly related to today’s so-called “immigrant problem”, however look at the words spoken, and it can very well apply. I will go into the true meanings later in the message.
We have people in congress – both houses – who have trampled all over laws that are on the books for their own selfish reasons. One congresswoman actually said we must accept all “illegals” because they “haven’t broken any laws”. How is it she keeps getting re-elected? And it’s not only her, but many people in the far-left liberal group that’s saying the same thing.
How about we start with definitions of the word “ILLEGAL”. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, Illegal is against the law; Illegal alien is a person who has entered a country without government permission. Miriam Webster – not according to or authorized by law. How about Oxford Living Dictionary – Illegal is contrary to or forbidden by law, especially criminal law.
The people in congress that want to allow illegals to continue to get into this country without any consequences are themselves breaking the law by being a party to a criminal action. How about the places that are offering sanctuary to illegals? Again, against the law.
America is known for being a “melting pot” as we allow almost everyone the opportunity to come here and gain citizenship through PROPER CHANNELS. My Grandfather, Grandmother and Dad immigrated to America from Germany in the late 1920’s and went through all the proper channels to become citizens. My Grandfather had been a German Soldier in WWI, but renounced his past when he became a citizen. He worked on an automobile assembly line at General Motors for 30 years, and never took a dime of welfare or unemployment from the government. My Dad was an American Soldier in WWII and was injured in New Guinea and was proud he served his country.
All the hoop-lah today is more about being anti our president than being concerned about the illegals. It’s a liberal scheme to acquire “voters” even if by unlawful means. Voter fraud was rampant in the last presidential election, yet certain governmental entities turned a “blind eye”. In fact, all the fraud was found to be on one particular side, yet the Father saw to it the election turned out for the better anyway. Eventually, He will turn this country over to its evil ways and then we will see an increase in 2 Timothy 3: 1-5 that is already present. It says, “In the last days difficult times will come. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, arrogant, boastful, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, without self-control, savage, opposed to what is good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, loving pleasure rather than loving God. They will appear religious outwardly, but will repudiate its power.” It continues in Chapter 4: 3-4 with “People will not tolerate sound teaching, but will follow their own desires – will turn away from Hearing the Truth, but will Turn to Myths.” (Paraphrased and all emphasis mine.)
For anyone who says all the above is not present today, I would say the delusion is upon them (2 Thessalonians 2: 11-12). I could write a full message on each and every one of the issues Paul gave and could even add to the list. I could name the “leaders” who are guilty of advancing all the evil, however it would take up too much space. They are constantly in the newscasts spouting their rhetoric. Is it any wonder that the “straight and narrow” Jesus talked about in Matthew 7 will contain “few people”, yet the gate that leads to destruction is wide with “many entering therein”? An estimate has been made that world-wide (and yes, this includes America) only about 10% of the population is “Rapture Ready”, and of His chosen people (Jews), it’s somewhere between 1% and 2% that are messianic.
All the so-called uproar about children being separated from parents is Media-Generated. Many of the “children” being brought into this country are not even with their parents or any relative for that matter. They are being used as decoys for certain illegals to gain entry. It’s only proper to check to see who they are and who they are with. Again, there are laws that have been on the books for over a century that covers immigration, and just needs to be enforced. The Faux-News is not doing anyone a real service. Some of the photos showing “children” in cages have been proven to be false.
One thing that True Believers can look forward to is the verses given in John 10: 1-2. When the time comes to go Home, we will not be plagued with any illegal entries as said in John 10:9, “I am the door. If anyone enters through Me, he will be saved and will come in and go out and find pasture.” Paul said in 2 Timothy 2:9, “However God’s solid foundation remains standing bearing this seal; the Lord knows those who are His and everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from evil.”
No one will enter heaven “illegally”. There is only One Way, One Truth, and One Life that counts and that is through Jesus (John 14:6). No one will get to the Father except through Him. However, ALL who call on the name of the Lord (this is doing it right) will be saved. (Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13)
The “prince of this world” is having his day right now, but soon the Savior will call His Church (All True Believers) Home. No magic rituals, no pre-formed speeches, no works of any kind will earn one second in heaven. Believing in Jesus and accepting the gift He gave at Calvary and believing He died for our sins will do it. Confess that we are all sinners and cannot save ourselves. (Romans 3:23) God will turn down no one who calls on the name of the Lord as there is no partiality in Him. (Romans 2:11)
Seeing the increase of the things Paul spoke of and even what Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24 should be a plain indicator we are in the “season” of the last days. Please don’t delay as satan would like for you to do this, but call on Jesus today!
Shalom – Maranatha!
