When Moses led the Israelites to the Promised Land, he asked permission to cross through the Kingdom of Edom, but, “Edom came out against them with a large and powerful army. Since Edom refused to let them go through their territory, Israel turned away from them” (Numbers 20: 14-21).
Each year, America welcomes over a million immigrants who first requested and obtained permission to enter and work.
Likewise, everyone wants to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but John 10: 1 says, “Anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.”
Anyone who repents by turning around and taking the right path may enter America or the Kingdom of Heaven. God doesn’t change His laws to accommodate lawless behavior. Neither should our government.
