The news media in America is giving massive exposure to the subject of illegal immigration at the United State’s southern border. I thought it would be beneficial to address this subject to provide the perspective of a disciple of Christ. It is very easy for Christians to be driven along by the flood of propaganda that spews forth from the government tap and the media spigot. It is always needful to walk wisely in the midst of this crooked and perverse generation, to beware of men with agendas, and the prince of this world who is ever advancing his plans through lies and deception.
Barack Obama announced at the beginning of his second term in office that one of his primary points of focus would be immigration reform. This is a parallel to his announcement during his first term that he would make healthcare reform the major focus of his efforts. Despite the fact that the healthcare reforms put forth by the President were hugely unpopular with Americans, and could only be passed through gross lying, manipulation, and a Congress that has been bought and paid for by a global cartel of world rulers who serve as the true government, the President managed to make Obamacare the law of the land. This legislation survived a legal challenge to its constitutionality as Chief Justice Roberts switched sides at the last moment and cast his support behind this huge imposition upon the freedoms and rights of Americans.
Understand, I am not one of those up-in-arms patriotic Americans who are livid with rage at the unlawful actions of all three branches of government. I have continued to maintain that the disciple of Christ who lives in America, or in any other nation where similar unrighteous governmental actions are taking place, should identify themselves as a citizen of a heavenly kingdom. This world, with its temporal governments and national boundaries does not define who we are. Upon being purchased by the blood of Christ we became aliens and strangers in this world. We have been given a new identity as we have been translated out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light. We have a King to whom we owe much more than any earthly monarch or government could legitimately demand of us. We have been bought with a price and are no longer our own, having passed from death into life.
At the same time, it is expedient to understand the times we live in, and the plans and actions of Satan and those governments he rules, that we might walk wisely as the days grow ever darker. There is a commonality of purpose between the healthcare reform of Obama’s first term, and the immigration reform of his second term. The ultimate goal is the destruction of the present world system of independent governments and nations that out of the ashes might arise a New World Order that has one central government upon which Satan’s chosen man will sit. It is a foregone conclusion that there can be no powerful, independent nation-states if a world government is to arise. Therefore, the strength of individual nations must be eroded. The debasement of all nations includes their economic impoverisation, their moral degradation, the dissolution of any ethnic distinctiveness, and the fracturing of powerful political blocs into disparate warring factions (such as is observed in the Republican Party with its Tea Party, Moderate, and Liberal (RINO) factions.)
Ethnically distinctive nations have always stood as an obstacle to global government. This was Yahweh’s doing, and it has proven immensely effective. In the 11th chapter of Genesis we read of the first global government, and their defiance of God. In order to prevent men from advancing too quickly into complete depravity as they united in rebellion against God’s will and fell wholesale under the government of Satan, Yahweh divided mankind at Babel. He caused the languages of mankind to be confused, resulting in the division of humanity into “tongues, and tribes, and nations.” This separation into distinctive groups has had an inhibiting effect upon the willful disobedience and rebellion of humanity as a whole. Satan knows he must destroy the distinctiveness of nations and people groups, bringing all mankind to a homogenous state of existence, so that he can institute rule over all in one central government.
America has never had any ethnic distinctiveness. There may have been an appearance of such in the early days when the government was formed, for it was a government created by white European males. There were, however, large numbers of Africans who largely served as slaves on Southern plantations. In some states, such as South Carolina, the number of blacks was nearly as great as the number of whites, but they were disenfranchised from political power, and society was deeply segregated. Even the identity of those men in power was not one of ethnic distinctiveness, for the European founders of America came from many nations.
Citizens of English derivation comprised the largest ethnic group of America’s colonists, but even at their peak at the time of America’s founding they constituted less than half of the population. The predominance of English ethnicity did not last, however, as massive numbers of European immigrants in the late 1700s and throughout the 1800s led to changes in America’s ethnic composition. Germans eventually outnumbered the English, a condition that exists to this day when the Irish and Scottish are numbered individually. It should be remembered that the United Kingdom, like the United States, is an ethnically diverse nation. Due to the territorial distinctiveness of their ancestral homelands, the Irish, Scottish, and Welsh continue to have a strong sense of ethnic identity.
2000 Census Figures
Due to the length of time that many families have been in America, a great many today no longer identify with their ancestors’ nation of origin. It is far more common to identify as White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, or Native American than by a specific foreign nation. The ethnic identity of Americans continues to change, especially with a great uptick in the number of immigrants from Mexico and Central and South America.
2010 Census Figures
In a span of ten years Mexicans have risen from the 6th most common nationality to 4th in America, though there is a significant number of people who identify as “American” having either lost any knowledge of their ancestor’s country of origin, or considering it so far removed as to be of little consequence. I suspect that with the influx of immigrants across America’s southern border in the past 4 years that Mexicans now occupy 3rd place on the list, and that all immigrants of Hispanic ethnicity are now rivaling those of African ancestry as the 2nd largest segment of America’s populace.
Satan’s ultimate aim is to construct Babylon once more upon the earth. Throughout the Bible, Babylon has always signified Satan’s kingdom in the same way that Zion serves as a representation of Yahweh’s kingdom. The book of Revelation especially contrasts Babylon and Zion. The overcomers in Christ are depicted as standing with the Son of God on Mount Zion (Revelation 14), and the people of God are urged to separate themselves from Babylon, who is also called “The Great Harlot” (Revelation 18).
It is helpful to identify the characteristics of Babylon, whose origin began with Babel, the city Nimrod founded. The Bible informs us that the people of Babel had one language, and were all under one government. It can be argued convincingly that the nucleus of Babylon today lies in the inner city of London. If there is one language that has become the lingua franca for the whole earth, it is English. It has become the language of international commerce. This is greatly due to England’s great success in establishing colonies all across the globe when she was at the height of her maritime empire. The English language is now officially embraced by nations as disparate as India, Canada, America, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Singapore, Belize, and Jamaica.
There are twice as many English speaking people in India today as the entire population of the United Kingdom. Additionally, 86% of the population of Sweden speaks English, as do 56% of the people of the Philippines, and 64% of Germans. Pakistan, Egypt, France, Italy, Thailand, Poland, Turkey, Iraq, Kenya, Brazil and numerous other nations have significant percentages of their populations that speak English. The spread of the English language across the globe is a result of Satan’s efforts to overturn the impediment to a single global government that Yahweh initiated when He confused the tongues of men at Babel.
England’s, and specifically London’s, central place at the heart of Satan’s efforts to build up Babylon again at the end of this age, is further attested by the fact that the Prime Meridian of the International Date Line runs through it. The global standard for time keeping is based upon Greenwich Mean Time, also commonly called Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Greenwich is a district of southeast London where the Royal Observatory is located. Thus, not only does the entire world use English as the language of international commerce, but it sets its time by London as well.
When the Summer Olympics were held in London in 2012, I wrote about another indicator of London’s role as a global Satanic headquarters. At the heart of London is a district referred to as “The City of London.” This is altogether distinct from the vast metropolis that is identified as London. This enclave at the heart of London is the central hub for the global bankers and lawmakers. Major roads leading into, or out of, The City of London are marked by “boundary dragons.” Following is an excerpt from an earlier writing.
At the center of London is a one square mile territory called the City of London Corporation. This is Satan’s seat. It is the greatest center of international banking in the world. British media is also centered here on Fleet Street. Major roads leading into the central territory known as the City of London are guarded by Boundary Dragons. Following is a map marking some of the dragon monuments in the inner City of London.
Temple Bar Dragon
This tall, gothic, freestanding dragon, looms over the Temple Bar Memorial on Fleet Street before the Royal Courts of Justice, and serves as one of the boundary markers to the City of London. The name Temple Bar comes from a nearby Temple that was originally constructed by the Knights Templars, a Satanic organization with a very dark history.
Another City of London Boundary Marker
Yet Another Boundary Dragon
The City of London is a Luciferian City. Following is an image of the coat of arms for the City.
City of London Corporation, Coat of Arms
The Latin phrase “domine dirige nos” is translated as “Lord Direct Us.” It should be obvious from the dragons that the lord being referred to is Lucifer, the great dragon of Scripture.
So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
The work of Satan to establish a one world government, Babylon reborn, begins at London. London is the chief city and capital of England. England conquered and assimilated three nations of ethnically diverse people who each had their own languages, customs, and governments. These nations are Ireland, Wales, and Scotland. Bringing them all under England’s power, these four disparate people groups became the United Kingdom. They now are united by a common government, a common currency, and a common language.
From there, Satan’s next step was to establish a larger melting pot that would draw together people from all nations of the world under a single government, currency, and language. This is the nation we now recognize as the United States. Note the common word “United” in both the UK and the USA. From the United States the next advance toward a global government was launched. This was the establishment of the League of Nations which was the predecessor for the United Nations. The United Nations headquarters is located in New York City. Even the name of America’s Queen City points back to England, for its namesake is the Duke of York who became King James II of England.
It is estimated that more than 800 languages are spoken by the citizens of New York City. It stands as the port of entry for millions of immigrants from across the world. It is truly a Babylonian city. That the United Nations headquarters is located there proves its Babylonian character, for here is the heart of a global governmental organization that has aspirations of uniting all humanity under one central rule.
The flood of immigrants currently taking place along America’s southern border is not primarily being carried out to increase the diversity of America, though it does have that effect. Nor is it a spontaneous uprising as the media and government would have people to believe. It is a carefully planned and orchestrated event being guided by the powers in the American government. Those Christians who have yet to see through the charade of the two party political system, not recognizing that both Republicans and Democrats are two heads of the same beast, are often caught up into political disputes and factions. They do not realize that the former Republican President George W. Bush passed laws that have greatly contributed to the influx of illegal aliens, and made it difficult to send them back to the places from which they came.
In 2008 President Bush signed into law legislation that required all illegal immigrants to appear before a judge before they could be deported. This act insured that the illegal aliens would be lost in the system and receive a lengthy stay in America. The number of immigration judges is simply too few to handle more than a small fraction of the number of illegal immigrants. Therefore, when the illegal immigrants are apprehended, they are given a notice to appear before a judge, and then released into American society where it will take years for their day in court to arrive. A recent article stated that 375,000 cases are on backlog awaiting a court date for immigrants to appear before judges.
The flood of immigrants serves another purpose aside from making America more ethnically diverse. It is designed to overwhelm the current system of state’s governments which have been a hindrance to the goal of unlimited federal authority. It is a designed flood of immigrants who generally have only basic education, and little prospect of obtaining jobs in technical fields. This relegates them to menial tasks such as farm labor, domestic help, or employment in restaurants. Few have a chance of becoming successful entrepreneurs. They are eligible for food stamps, government health insurance, and other welfare programs. At this time, there is a large number of school age children flooding across the border, and these are placed in public school systems that had not planned for large numbers of new students, especially those who need Spanish language teachers and remedial education.
Hundreds of men, women, and children are coming from Latin America to the United States. Many are riding trains across Mexico. To give an idea of how many are doing so, it was recently reported that one train derailed, stranding 1,300 illegal immigrants who were riding the train up towards the U.S. border. The goal is to overwhelm all the social welfare, healthcare, public education, law enforcement, and other public sectors with massive numbers of unemployed people who will be supported by public funding. I have not seen the tremendous amount of press coverage given to any one issue since Barack Obama was pressing for healthcare reform. The tactics are very similar. Obama appealed to the American populace using the specter of uninsured children who would go without healthcare unless his reform measures were passed. He is once again playing the same tune as the media hypes the issues of illegal immigrant children whose lives might be imperiled if they were sent back home.
Obama Signs Healthcare Reform Bill (For the benefit of the children)
Illegal Immigrant Children
The government and press are seeking to create a perception of vast numbers of young children in peril in order to convince American citizens to support immigration reform, which is a code word for “amnesty.” Alternative news sites are reporting that only 2% of illegal immigrant children are below the age of a teenager. That is not the story that the media photos reveal, however.
Let me interject here that I am not sharing this because I am a disgruntled American citizen. I am simply seeking to draw attention to the way Satan works. His disciples employ the same tactics of lying and deception that he is renowned for.
Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar, and the father of lies.
A clear example of the deception being practiced by the Luciferian government of America is observed in the arguments they have set forth over the past 13 years since the events of 9-11, leading to the creation and huge expansion of the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration. Americans cannot walk through an airport without submitting to invasive full body searches. They are subjected to all manner of harassment with stories of young children being traumatized, the elderly and handicapped being rudely treated, and all of this is justified by the need to secure our borders and keep terrorists out of America. Yet this same government has left the southern border of America wide open with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens crossing. It is reported that many citizens from Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and various far flung nations are flying into Mexico and walking across the border where it is undefended. It should be apparent to anyone that national security is a farce. Americans are being conditioned to surrendering their constitutional rights to unnecessary search and seizure while the border remains wide open for real terrorists to enter the country at will.
Returning to the true agenda of the powers that be, those individuals who appointed Barack Obama to be President of the United States are following a plan to destroy America as a constitutional Republic of individual states as set forth by two professors at Columbia University at the time Barack Obama was said to have attended there. The professors names are Cloward and Piven. They put forth a strategy to undermine capitalism so that it could be supplanted by a socialist system where the government becomes the dispenser of all things to the citizenry of the nation. In this way, everything is given into the hands of the government, and people cannot buy or sell, or use government services (and everything becomes a government service, including banking services and all forms of merchandising), apart from government consent.
Wayne Allen Root, the Libertarian candidate for President in 2008, and a columnist for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, wrote the following article four years ago.
Obama's agenda: Overwhelm the system
Rahm Emanuel cynically said, "You never want a crisis to go to waste." It is now becoming clear that the crisis he was referring to is Barack Obama's presidency.
Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.
Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of '83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.
-- Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?
-- Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around."
-- Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama's plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.
-- Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.
-- Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.
-- Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.
With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.
Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme -- all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama.
To those who still have not perceived the Republican/Democrat charade for what it is, consider that Obama has simply continued the policies practiced by George W. Bush. At a time when the news was reporting that the federal government was borrowing huge amounts of money to sustain its runaway spending policies, and that such practices could not be sustained indefinitely, George Bush signed legislation that resulted in the greatest expansion of medicare/medicaid since these programs were created. He authorized the government purchase of pharmaceuticals for all recipients using these welfare programs.
On Jan. 1, 2006, the federal government launched Part D, which enabled the nation's 43 million Medicare beneficiaries to get subsidized prescriptions through a choice of private insurance plans...
The Bush White House lied to Congress about the cost. Within two months of signing the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) into law, President Bush quietly informed Congress that the true cost of the program would be $550 billion, not $395 billion, over the next decade. When Medicare actuary Richard Foster sought to present the true price tag to Congress in late 2003, then agency chief Thomas Scully threatened to fire him. By the time the program was launched in 2006, the estimated 10 year price tag for the Medicare prescription plan had increased to $720 billion.
Brothers and sisters, these are not trivial amounts of money being mentioned here. Aside from enriching the coffers of the global corporations whose masters give marching orders to Presidents, Congressmen, and other world leaders, the goal is to destroy America by a crushing burden of social spending. America’s debt is already so great that her downfall is assured. By opening the borders for a flood of illegal immigrants, the pace of America’s collapse is accelerated. It is death by a million paper cuts.
A day will come when the global elite who own the Federal Reserve Banks, who pump out a constant stream of fiat money for the government to spend, will say they can no longer continue to do so. The blame will be placed squarely upon the taxpayers who will be accused of living beyond their means. Austerity measures will be enacted. Bank accounts will be seized. People will lose their life’s savings. Test runs have already been carried out in other nations, such as in Greece.
It is certain that America’s days of prosperity, ease, and comfort are coming to an end. The blood of tens of millions of aborted babies cries out for judgment. The promotion of homosexuality, and the glorification of sexual promiscuity, violence, and a hedonistic lifestyle demands divine retribution. Yahweh will not save America from the slaughter that is coming, for she has slaughtered tens of millions of her own children. The rape and pillage of America being carried out by the government is according to the will of God.
“I shall pour out My indignation on you; I shall blow on you with the fire of My wrath, and I shall give you into the hand of brutal men, skilled in destruction.”
Barack Obama is a brutal man, skilled in destruction. Congress is filled with brutal men (and women), skilled in destruction. The Supreme Court is comprised of brutal men and women, skilled in destruction. The destruction goes on apace, all the while these men and women speak words of deception that the unwary and foolish accept as fact.
What should be the Christians response to these things?
Look at the individual immigrants from God’s perspective. For many years American Christians have been uprooting their families and moving to Mexico, Central America, and South America to serve as missionaries, sharing the message of the gospel of Christ to the people who live there. Now the citizens of those nations are flooding into America. They are being flown and bused to towns and cities all across America where there are churches on every corner, and professing Christians by the thousands. The opportunity for ministry is great. The people of God should reach out to these ones as they are given opportunity. Each one is a soul for whom Christ died. Do not be caught up in the political theater that demonizes, or lionizes, these immigrants. They are sons and daughters of Adam who need the salvation Christ came to bring to all mankind.
Understand that America’s downfall is drawing closer. The transition to a dystopian society such as portrayed in movies and books like The Hunger Games will occur with great violence. This is why the government is building up a civilian army through the Department of Homeland Security. This is why the government is purchasing hundreds of millions of rounds of ammunition, and pressing for laws to remove guns from the ordinary citizen. When the dollar collapses, stores will be emptied in hours. Then riots will ensue. Cities will be set ablaze. Those who have made preparation will be able to flee the cities before the roads are locked down, and nation wide martial law is implemented. Seek God to know how He would have you to prepare.
Realize this, the very government that is luring hundreds of thousands of Latin Americans to the USA with a promise that they will be taken care of, are leading them into a trap. The New World Order will arise out of the ashes of the old world order. Civilization will burn. The experience will result in millions of dead. These illegal immigrants, especially the unaccompanied minors, will be some of the most vulnerable. They will rue the day they ever chose to seek refuge in Babylon. Pray for them as well as for your own family.
Bonus reading. Here is one more example of the government acting to overwhelm America with an influx of welfare recipients.
