I admit that when I first heard this I started to get really angry and even began to question GOD on why HE would let this happen. I remember thinking what a risk this is, allowing an “illegal army” to amass within our borders at US Taxpayer expense. The more I thought about it, the more infuriated I became.
As I began to pray about this topic, I felt prompted by the LORD to read Matthew 24:14 which says:
This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14 NASB)
After reading those words, I became excited and began to think, “could it be that GOD was allowing these children to come to the US so that they could hear about the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST before the end comes”? Could it be that these children entering US borders - even illegally - is another sign of the soon return of CHRIST? Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that illegal immigration shoudl be allowed, but I do believe that this is an opportunity for those of us that are Christians to reach even “the least of these”. (Matt 25:40)
My challenge to you isthat you would tell someone - even an illegal immigrant - about the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST today! Instead of just complaining about Illegal Immigration…do something about it, tell them about JESUS CHRIST!
