BRITAIN:                                                                                                                TO BE UPDATED

                              

                                                   The Royal Wedding                                                            Parliament

In the past, our country was known as 'Great' Britain because we were an example to the nations...our Royal Family, our parliamentary system were envied and respected world-wide, and our Empire was huge. Our economy was strong and our influence great in the nations. However, this once-great nation is now experiencing riots in some of our foremost cities, the economy is struggling, and many of the companies and assets of our nation are owned by other countries. What has gone wrong?

Queen Elizabeth and also Prime Minister David Cameron have encouraged Christianity recently......see last paragraph (later).  They recognise not only the need our country is in, but a way forward.  

WHY is it that not just our own nation, but many nations of the world are in crisis? There is suddenly great turmoil and social unrest, and an on-going financial crisis. And why so suddenly? The author presents a very different viewpoint to what you may be hearing from the government or the media. Check this out. “They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind.” The Bible: Hosea 8:7

First view this prophetic word delivered by an 'elder statesman' of the Church, for Great Britain, on Saturday 6th August 2011:

Hear the voice of the Lord, O Isles that I have so greatly loved and favoured. I the Lord the Almighty, I took you when you were nothing, clothed with skins and woad, and through My saving power, I made you great. When you were nothing, through My Word and your faith in Me, I lifted you and made you Great Britain. Through many awakenings and many revivals, stage by stage, I took you until you became a great power with the greatest Empire in the history of the nations. From you My Gospel and My Word went throughout the world, and tens of thousands came into an experience of saving faith! That Empire with all its many failings and weaknesses was still one of the most just and righteous Empires of history.

Those Isles of yours were soaked with the blood of My faithful martyrs and its soil received the burnt ashes of those who would not renounce My Name, My Truth, and My Word. I, the Lord have not forgotten those who gave their all for Me!

But now the whole nation that I created and sustained has turned from Me. They paganise their land, state and institutions; there is no voice heard to warn the nation. False religion, the work of world rulers of darkness, cover your Isles; A Laodicean church, neither hot nor cold, rumbles on like machinery. It is a church where I am outside of its routine; its organisation and its methodology. It is Christianity without Me: Religion without Me!

My being is seared with pain, for judgement is determined against your land. I can do no other. I will destroy the vestiges of her greatness; I will return her to her first estate. I will wreck her economy, destabilise her in every way. I will change her climate, even her weather. I will prove to her that the way of the transgressor is hard and terrible. I will allow demonic forces held in check erstwhile by My Word and Gospel, and the living faith of so many, to become rampant in her social life, to the destruction of her society.

Will you who know Me and love Me go blind and dumb and deaf into this judgement?

It is time for you who love Me, who are faithful to Me, to take action! Stand before Me and plead The Finished Work of My Son. At least cry out to Me, that there will be those who turn from darkness, from sin, and be saved. For whosoever shall call upon My Name in the midst of these judgements, I will save!

 It will cost you everything to stand in the gap, but you will enter into My heart, and know deep fellowship with Me. Such travail conceived in your heart by My Spirit will cost your deeply, but it will end in My Throne and Glory. 

 

And now, with this sober 'word' let us continue to look at the reasons for the state of our nation today:

Ordinary people are worried about their security, safety at home and on the streets, their finances, their homes, their mortgage, debt, pension, savings, stocks and shares, etc. The world seems to be in meltdown socially and financially. Why is this? I am going to put forward some challenges as I set this article before you.

The law of sowing and reaping: Nature teaches us that we reap what we sow. The seed sown into the ground will reap a harvest of the same in due season, under normal conditions suited for growth. I believe the principle of sowing and reaping applies as a universal law throughout creation, ranging from seed sown in the ground or chemical action and reaction, to acts of kindness sown into people’s lives or the use of money for positive or negative purposes. What we are witnessing is the principle of sowing and reaping in operation amongst the nations. We have sown greed and misuse of other people’s money, (OPM) or entered into unsustainable credit & debt deals, and now are reaping the folly of such activities. We have sown a lack of respect for God, and others. We have taught our children that morals do not matter, that we can live to please ourselves, that we can get away with things, that there is no comeback. But, we are now reaping what we have sown into the lives of this young generation. We have to bear some of the blame for what is happening on our streets of our cities in 2011.

A key reason for the world-wide recession as being the fact that we are now a ‘global village‘. What affects one nation can now quickly transfer to other nations since so many countries are linked up in some way, these days, through the media and internet, affecting social characteristics of society, and through financial markets. The development of internet banking, the supermarket chains and the gigantic multi-nationals also supports this. Finances to grant credit or to gain access to credit have been tapped from not only our own country’s resources, but from those of other countries, too. Banks of other nations have been useful banking points for companies and even governments in Britain…the Icelandic Bank being a case in point. Financially, a loss of confidence and fear of the future drives the stock markets down. Many other voices including the government and media are giving similar reasons for the problems we are facing.

 However, I submit that there is a far more potent reason for this universal effect……the fact that there is a Creator to whom we must answer. God is in control of world events, not Man nor any devil, or world masters. The physical shaking of nations…e.g. climate change, unusual weather and events, social unrest in and between nations…was forecast by the biblical prophet Haggai in the Old Testament of the Bible. This shaking was also recognised and re-iterated by the writer to the Hebrews in the New Testament portion of the Bible:

Haggai 2:6-7 "This is what the LORD Almighty says: '……I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations………”

The context is of the end days of society. This ’end times’ shaking has already begun. Jesus Himself declared such events.

Note: When I refer to the Bible, it is as a source book, an original, inspired by God to be written by men as a ’workshop manual’ on how to live a full and satisfying life in relationship with the Creator. The major religions of the world all acknowledge its strength, and over the centuries, it has been recognised by governments and nations and individuals as a remarkable guide to living. It is far more than a historical book - it is living, inspired, a breath of fresh air. The prophecies declared in it have proved absolutely accurate. The laws of the Old Testament find new life in the New Testament, as the Spirit of God was poured out on man, enabling those who believe to live out the law of God in fullness and freedom. There is no law, for instance, against love! Now back to Jesus’ words:

The Bible: Luke 21:8-11 "Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am he,' and, 'The time is near.' Do not follow them. When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away." Then he said to them: "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.”

Luke 21:25-26 "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. Luke 21:34-35 "Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth“ (Also see Matthew 24:6-8

The physical shaking of the nations by the hand of God - for ultimately He is the One who sustains all life and all creation - is now moving into a social and economic shaking, with the world’s economic system (‘Babylon’) now under the judgment of God because of mammon, the love of money, and greed. The morals and conduct of the nations are under scrutiny as well. God is not mocked…we reap what we sow. Hence the current social and financial crises.

Britain and the USA, apart from any other nations, are entering into recession as a result of displaying massive greed in so many economic and financial areas, not least the banks in the housing and mortgaging spheres. This has been most apparent in the dealings towards the poorer black American communities who have been granted unsustainable credit.

Add this to western society’s constant desire for gratification outside of God and His wise parameters for the conduct of life, and we see a society in turmoil. Social structures are crumbling as the law of sowing and reaping, cause and effect come into play. We are now reaping what we have sown in our desire for quick gratification. For instance, huge numbers of marriage breakdowns, broken homes (half of the children in GB today come from broken homes), youth crime and social disorder. Now the arising of economic recession could precipitate a meltdown in the social order. We need to face the truth that when a society or a nation rejects God and His requirements, it rejects His favour in granting a stable and blessed society. He is sovereign amongst the nations…He is God.

 

 

THE QUEEN & PRIME MINISTER: CHRISTMAS 2011

The Queen, a committed Christian, included in her Christmas message a clear reference to the Gospel of salvation through Christ.

The Prime Minister, David Cameron, called for the Church to speak out for Christianity in our nation. These are good developments which we need to pray are acted upon. 

PRAY: for Queen Elizabeth, the Prime Minister and maybe the Archbishop of Canterbury, amongst others, to call a National Day of Prayer. What a difference that would make as we humbled ourselves before Almighty God!
