The Bible Speaks About Borders and Sovereignty 

April 1, 2017

There is nothing wrong with wanting a country to remain sovereign, with its own borders.  The Bible mentions several times about borders, which God himself placed there.

God makes it very clear in Acts 17-26: “and he made for man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place…”

In Numbers 20:14-21: “Please let us pass through your land. We will not pass through field or vineyard, or drink water from a well…we will not turn aside to the right hand or to the left until we have passed through your territory.” The king’s response? “You shall not pass through.” Moses tries a second time to secure an entrance visa. “We will go up by the highway, and if we drink of your water, I and my livestock, then I will pay for it. Let me only pass through on foot, nothing more.”

In Joshua, the promised land was divided into 12 tribes. Important to note, the reading is very detailed and thorough as to where the boundaries are to be. In Joshua 15 the word boundary is used no less than 15 times in describing the perimeter of Judah.

So, borders were and are important to God.  Our U.S. border near Mexico and Canada should be respected, as it is God’s law.  

Mexicans are mostly of the Catholic religion, I am surprised that they and the Pope do not respect God’s word. Permission to enter is to be sought, and if denied should not be questioned. Neither should one sneak across, under, over, smuggled in etc…
