The news from Britain is getting very repetitive, and so much so that the public are getting sick and tired of it. Why listen or watch the news about politicians fighting it out over so-called “Brexit?” The public know what they want and they voted for it, but the political establishment, who think they know better, deny it them. So what can we make of it in the light of the Bible?
For the last few years The Bible Magazine has been pointing out that Britain is not going to find it all that easy to escape from Europe. As the heading for Milestones put it in the current issue, Democracy has been Defeated.
In the July issue for 2016 we wrote about Britain’s separation from Catholic Europe, and then the Battle of Britain in October 2017. And then - although it is always out of sight in the media, there is “The Vatican’s Covert War on the protestant Throne.” That featured in the magazine for April 2019.
Several news stories this past weekend put the Royal Family in a bad light drawing attention to family feuds and even claiming that the Queen herself engaged in “flirtatious banter” with a former Prime Minister.
But what can one expect when a nation rejects the Word of God (the Bible) and has forgotten God?
The principle is surely stated clearly enough by the Psalmist: “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” - Psalm 9:17.
It is because Britain and other English-speaking nations have ignored the warnings of Scripture (and the warnings of those who were enlightened by this Word) - and have foolishly allowed Roman Catholicism to infiltrate and weaken them, that defeat will come. As Delilah charmed Samson and deprived him of sight and strength, so the harlot of Rome is working to bring about the ruin of the English-speaking world. Britain is being bound and chained by her membership of the European Union with its laws and directives - when she wakes up to the realisation of her plight, her strength will be gone!
The God of Heaven is just and righteous in all His ways, but what is to become of nations who have been exposed to the word of Truth, have been addressed through it, have even been moved by it to fulfill His great purposes; have been delivered - but then turned their backs upon God and despised the Holy Oracles? What is to become of nations we ask, who refuse to hear the cry of the prophets, preferring science fiction and the myths of atheistic dreamers? Hear what the Almighty says through the prophet Jeremiah:-
“At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation,and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.” Jeremiah 18:7-10.
This infallible principle will apply to all of the independent English-speaking nations who each bear their own responsibility before God. They will be held especially responsible.
Britain cannot expect any favours from the God of the Bible while she treads the present path. The present political turmoil can only be expected to get worse as Catholic Europe shows itself to be a formidable enemy.
Britain does not need elections. She needs to repent!
