What God says about Borders and Boundaries

For the most part, Christians have asked me questions about what is happening on the border between Mexico and the United States; my perspective is this. We, as believers and Christians must see what the Word of God says, not what secular media or people with certain ideas think. In social networks it is very common for people to give their opinions – and – everyone has an opinion, but we must base ourselves on what the Word of God says. For this reason I clarify that this message is for Word of Faith Ministries’ Faith Partners; for people who connect with us and already know that we are a teaching Ministry. This is not for outsiders to comment on or share their opinion upon. If you disagree, then this message is simply not for you. This message is exclusively for the people, Partners of our Ministry, who are Christian believers, who believe in the Word of God and the Bible. If you do not believe in the Bible then this is not for you. Don’t waste your time writing comments expressing your disagreement, especially if they are socialist, communist, or democratic propaganda; nothing of that interests us. We are interested in nothing more than what the Word of God says.
Let’s go to the book of Acts.
Acts 17:24-26 (NKJV)
24 God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. 25 Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. 26 And He has made from one [a]blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings…
Note that it says boundaries, there we see that the idea of ​​borders does not come from man, it comes from God. Now let’s us go to the book of Deuteronomy.
Deuteronomy 32:8 (NKJV)
8 When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations,
When He separated the sons of Adam,
He set the boundaries of the peoples
According to the number of the [a]children of Israel.
Again, notice that it uses the (boundaries) term. The word limits comes from the Hebrew gebûlâh which means Bound (Hebrew) gebûlâh
region, border, boundary, territory, coast, border, territory, or limited territory.
Deuteronomy 32:8 Expanded Bible (EXB) 8 God Most High gave ·the nations their lands [L each nation its inheritance], dividing up the ·human race [L sons of man]. He set up borders for the people
·and even numbered the Israelites[a] [L according to the number of the sons/T children of Israel].
Note that it says (borders for the people). Therefore, those organizations promoting Nations Without Borders, and similar organizations are anti-Biblical. This socialism mentality is infiltrating into the United States and other nations, wanting to become and establish a globalist government.
If you have a house and have a fence, you have a border. Your own house has borders, you are limiting a place. Where you have the living room, where the kitchen is, where the bedrooms are. All this means (a border), a territory or a limited space. If you have a house and have a wall or fence, you are limiting your territory. God knew that nations were going to have different cultures, different ways of thinking, that’s why the idea of ​​borders comes from God, not from men.
So, wanting to come and go as is happening now at our borders, is as if I wanted to enter your house by force because I’m having problems in my house and I want to go into yours, wanting to
invade and say ” I have problems in my home you have to take me in.”
We believe in helping, the Bible talks about helping people, helping is Biblical, what is not Biblical is wanting to invade by force. God established the nations of the world and there are so many verses that speak of this, an example is in Joshua chapter 1.
Joshua 1:3-4 (NKJV)
3 Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. 4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory.
So, here God is setting limits. People from any other country cannnot come in this manner; destroy a border like the one that was destroyed between Guatemala and Mexico. That tells us that there is no respect of the people toward others and to a nation’s border (limits). Mexico must and has the right to enforce and execute its laws and cannot have people walking around through the country as if nothing is happening. It is as I explained, take your home for example. If people from your town, from your own country want to invade your boundaries (your house), just two or three families come to your home, I don’t believe you would like that. It is not correct and it is not Biblical, is not the right way.
The Bible says in James 4:6 (NKJV)
6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.”
These people need to walk in humility in these situations, they cannot demand that another country fix their lives, they cannot demand that the United States fix their issues because there are problems in their home country. In this case the people must put a demand on their own governments.
I assure you that there are many Christians in that caravan, but these people must learn the Word of God and learn what the Bible says and apply that Word in their own personal lives. What this socialism is wanting to do is to develop a globalist government, and all this is preparing the way for the antichrist. Globalism wants to take us to a single government, a one-world order, just one.
Many of the people who come in the caravan, truly believe that what they’re doing is correct but it is not the right way. They do not know much about this, but they are being financed by pure socialist groups, and in part by the democratic party. And I go back to the same thing. What does the Word of God say? We need to get into the Word of God to know what it says about this. There are verses that speak about this. In the book of Numbers, He uses the same word “boundaries” and uses the word “borders”. Numbers 21: 13-15; Numbers 22:36, Numbers 34, the book of Numbers is tremendous and there are so many verses from which to draw on what the Bible says about this subject. This is for believers, this is for people who know the Bible, people who understand the Bible and believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God.
Many of the groups that are organizing this do not believe in the Bible. Let’s go to the book of Numbers.
Numbers 34:2-3 (NKJV)
2 “Command the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you come into the land of Canaan, this is the land that shall fall to you as an inheritance—the land of Canaan to its boundaries. 3 Your southern border shall be from the Wilderness of Zin along the border of Edom; then your southern border shall extend eastward to the end of the Salt Sea;
The words boundaries and borders are the same word in the Hebrew. Then, each nation has the right to protect its borders, as the Nation seems fit. Mexico must protect its borders, and I say this as a Mexican from the state of Sonora. Mexico must protect its borders and the people must respect those borders. It does not matter if it is a fence made of cyclonic mesh, or if it is a wall or a wire fence, it should be respected. We cannot come and run over it.
Even we as Hispanics, or Mexicans in any nation, cannot just go and demand rights to another country. As Mexicans, we cannot go as a mob to England or France, Venezuela, or Argentina, In Central and South America, we do not have the right to go and demand things out of these countries. It is wrong, it is wrong from the Biblical point of view and that is the point of view that matters the most and foremost.
Numbers 34:2-3 (EXB)
2 “Give this command to the ·people [L sons/T children] of Israel: ‘You will soon enter Canaan and ·it will be yours. These shall be the borders [L …this is the land that will fall to you as an inheritance, the land of Canaan according to its borders/boundaries]: 3 On the south you will get part of the ·Desert [Wilderness] of Zin near the border of Edom. On the east side your southern border will start at the south end of the ·Dead [L Salt] Sea,
6 “‘Your western border will be the ·Mediterranean [L Great] Sea.
7 “‘Your northern border will begin at the ·Mediterranean [L Great] Sea and ·go [L mark/draw a line] to Mount Hor.
9 Then the border will go to Ziphron, and it will end at Hazar Enan. This will be your northern border.
10 “‘Your eastern border will begin at Hazar Enan and ·go [L mark/draw a line] to Shepham. 11 From Shepham the border will go ·east of [L down to] Ain to Riblah and ·along [L go down to] the hills east of ·Lake [T the Sea of] ·Galilee [L Kinnereth]. 12 Then the border will go down along the Jordan River and end at the ·Dead [L Salt] Sea.
“‘These are the borders around your country.’”
In The New King James Version says
12 the border shall go down along the Jordan, and it shall end at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land with its surrounding boundaries.’ ”
Again, borders or boundaries, limited territory is what the Hebrew word means, it’s as clear as water. This message is for you if you are a believer, a born again Christian, and a disciple, because you can be a Christian but there are many ignorant Christians when it comes to the scriptures who do not understand or do not know or never have been taught this. I am talking to the disciples and no one else, secular or democrat party opinions do not interest us, much less if they are communist or socialist ideas. Do not waste your time writing comments, they will be deleted.
Grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ! Amen!
