This what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says, “If you are determined to go to Egypt and you do go to settle there, then the sword you fear will overtake you there, and the famine you dread will follow you into Egypt, and there you will die… by the sword, famine or plague; not one of them will survive or escape the disaster I will bring on them.” (Jeremiah 42:15b-16, 17b NIV)
As Syrian refugees enter Europe and America, some are arguing we need to welcome them as an act of compassion. This post will argue the opposite. It is disconcerting to see Syrian men of fighting age fleeing to the U.S. and Europe rather than mounting an effective resistance or, at least, remaining in proximity to their homeland. What kind of counterattack can be mobilized to regain lost ground if fighting men have been disbursed to England or Kentucky? It has created a resistance void in cities and towns throughout the region.
Humanitarian work is currently going on in camps in Jordan and elsewhere in the region. Had aid for food, blankets, tents, as well as medicine, been given from the same governments opening their borders, an international crisis would have been averted. Supplying transportation to the west for 100,000 Syrians since 2012, instead of emergency assistance to the refugees is unprecedented!
(Oh, and what about the credible reports that ISIS, The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, has been printing fake Syrian passports. Shouldn’t Syrian immigration be stopped until the matter of forged passports is resolved?)
Something other than humanitarianism is afoot. I suggest that a massive influx of Middle Easterners is an attempt to alter forever the political, social and religious landscape of two continents (i.e. Europe and North America) and, therefore, the world. Are we seeing the final stage of the global proliferation of Islam or a global caliphate?
What else explains why Muslims are readily admitted into the U.S., while Syrian or Iraqi Christians are denied. Though the Christian population in Syria is at ten percent only .004% who’ve entered are Christian. According to recent published reports, Syrian refugees numbered 2098 Muslims and 56 Christians.
Another concern ought to be higher on the priority list than humanitarianism, that is national security. Already, the number of Muslim immigrants is so large and growing that federal agencies are unable to adequately track the activities of suspected or potential terrorists.
This blog has stated that God’s judgment on the West is imminent. In “Demolition” (December 6, 2013) I, John, described Western leaders as appointed by God as destroyers. As a demolition team, they have emerged to supervise the uprooting and tearing down of their respective nations. Observe their “progress” the last two years.
With respect to Syrian refugees, “Do NOT go West!” You will regret it. Keeping Iraqi and Syrian Christians from entering America may be God’s way of preserving their lives. For Western Christians seeking refuge abroad, I offer this: Rather than fleeing, better to remain and build local shelters or Christian communities. Begin constructing an ark of refuge for God’s people–only then will you save yourself.
Jeremiah, the prophet, warned fellow Jews living in Judea that, by escaping to Egypt, they would encounter the very thing they thought they were fleeing; namely, the sword of Babylon. This “prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5) is speaking God’s Word to saints world-wide. Prepare for disaster. Perform great acts of love, while the opportunity lasts, especially for the household of God (1 Peter 4:7-13). Then we will show ourselves worthy of our calling and true citizens of the Kingdom of God on earth.
