Another contribution from David Hood to the brief outline at UK/EU in/out #5 of the Vision for Great Britain the Lord gave Wendy Alec in 2005, warrants repeating as an individual post in its own right.
In commenting upon that outline, Dave offers items from a series of 12 visions starting in 1997 that show God’s love for this nation and our nearest ‘neighbour’, France, as well as God’s purpose for the UK in relation to Europe as a whole. The one dated 2003 is most apposite for today in view of Brexit and Scottish hopes for separation. Dave writes.:
‘Many of us inhabitants of Great Britain, and even some outside of us, will not say that we are a UNITED Kingdom, but more a DIVIDED nation. One has only to have looked at the troubles of Northern Ireland, the SEPARATE and devolved parts of Scotland and Wales. Their animosity stretching back centuries for all to observe. In fact Scotland, Ireland and Wales are Celtic nations, and one may even include Cornwall, part of England whose roots are also Celtic. Yet, seemingly, England rules supreme.
‘Even geographically, the boundaries remain. Hadrian’s Wall separates Scotland from England and Offa’s Dyke separates England from Wales. Even Northern Ireland is separated by water from Scotland and Wales. Indeed the whole of Ireland itself is separated from each other, with a border between its North and South.
‘A number of years back, whilst attending the 1st Braveheart Conference in Edinburgh. I believed the Lord said this to me… “JUST AS HADRIAN’S WALL SEPARATES ENGLAND FROM SCOTLAND, AND OFFA’S DYKE SEPARATES ENGLAND FROM WALES (PHYSICALLY), SO TOO, AM I UNITING THEM SPIRITUALLY.”
‘I then had a picture of England, Scotland and Wales joined together to one another, with NO geographical, political or historical boundaries, with the Dyke and the Wall removed. There were not 3 separate entities, but ONE. Later the Lord said to me… “I am doing a work amongst the Celtic nations”. For the first time, I realised that Ireland had its place with Wales and Scotland as IT TOO, was a Celtic nation.
‘He reminded me of the myth of a great giant who built a causeway from the north-east tip of Ireland to the south-west part of Scotland…He said… “In the same way that I am joining Wales and Scotland to England; I am crossing the divide between Ireland and Scotland and joining them to Wales and each other”. I could see part of God’s plan. He was taking them over on “dry ground”
‘The miracle here is that England IS NOT A CELTIC nation, but He will join them to these other Kingdom parts for His purpose and His glory. England is far more akin and likened to Europe…yet He will make Britain United and Great to transport and transfer his greatness and the unity to Europe and France as a Nation.
‘English bloodstock is inherited from European bloodstock. So at the same time that He unites England to Wales, Scotland and Ireland. He also seeks to unite and RE-ATTACHES England, with its Celtic and Godly unity RESIDING WITHIN IT to the European stock. “Behold…I do a new thing…”.
‘When Jesus said in Luke “Go ye unto all nations”, I believe He was saying go unto all ethnic groups. The Celts can be seen as an ethnic group and so, too, can the Anglo-Saxons … Acts 17:26 ‘And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation’; Gen 28:3 ‘May God Almighty bless you and make you fruitful and increase your numbers until you become a community of peoples’.
‘I believe this unity, is also necessary in the geopolitical quandary we now face with the Scottish move for separate rule.
‘Today in hindsight … he purposes to make UK Great again, separating from Europe, and within, He seeks to make this nation United and One, the Kingdom United.
‘His purpose for Britain is not to serve under Europe’s king Baal, but rather to take Britain’s King, King Jesus Christ, to Europe, not to serve a foreign God at Brussels but to join Europe to Himself.’
