commentary: Massive Immigration, Few Controls
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 05-Aug-17; Sermon #1391c; 15 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, reflecting on the metaphorical and literal purposes of walls, points out the protective aspect, which motivated the creation of the Great Wall of China, Israel's current wall deflecting Palestinian rockets and terrorists, and the wall protecting Jerusalem in Nehemiah's time. God has placed a metaphorical wall of protection around those who remain faithful. The proposed wall between Mexico and America. which Donald Trump promised to build has been sabotaged by establishment politicians who mock that no plane will be hindered by a wall. Most migrants, however, are too poor to buy plane tickets, but flee by foot the poverty of badly mismanaged national economies, bringing crime, disease epidemics, and cultural destabilization to America. Over the last several decades, the aggregate illegal Spanish-only speaking population has exceeded 12 million, with 60 million residents speaking languages other than English, replicating the chaos and confusion when God separated the languages at the Tower of Babel. The migrant invasion experienced by the Israelitish countries has been entirely self-inflicted, occasioned by their rejecting God's covenant and His Law.
