“I will surprise you with the leaders of nations. I have ways to cause leaders that have been promoted to bow their knees. You will think they’re going one way, but you watch Me knock the feet out from under them; you watch them see Me in a way they’ve never seen Me before!” (Published 2013)
The above three years-old prophetic word popped unsought into my attention late on Monday afternoon after a weekend mulling over powerful words from last week.
I was amazed at its direct relevance to what’s been happening here over the past month: on David Cameron’s decision for the UK to remain in the EU and the subsequent public vote for us to leave, with its severe jolt to his government – and the more astonishing fact that ALL leading political proponents for ‘Leave’ have also fallen by the wayside, and thus could NOT succeed him as Prime Minister.
Apparently, Cameron remarked proudly upon his achievement of introducing same-sex ‘marriage’. However, he’ll regret it because, ‘there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account’ (Heb 4:13). So, maybe the Lord decided it’s time to get him kicked out!
AND his wasn’t the only position in turmoil: not only Conservative party ‘Brexiteers’ Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Andrea Leadsom were unexpectedly out of the running as his successor, but also the leader of UK Independence Party’s Nigel Farage resigned having achieved his goal of the UK’s leaving the EU! As for Her Majesty’s official opposition, the Labour Party? LOL, it’s in continual turmoil over exceptionally lack-lustre leadership!!
The Prime Minister had decided to retire in the Autumn. Unbeknown to me until hearing the 5pm news in the car on Monday, he then brought forward his retirement to today.
Before that, however, I’d emailed friends with a link to some mid-afternoon breaking news from which I infer the Lord may bless Theresa May as Cameron’s successor because of her strong support of Israel.
In catching up with Middle-Eastern news I read that she was a keynote speaker at April’s Israeli Independence Day in London and vowed ‘to redouble all efforts to wipe out anti-Semitism in Britain’; (she) observed, “without its Jews Britain would not be British. The Jewish people have long been an important and integral part of this country”.
Therefore, not only was ‘Brexit’ an act of God but so too is Cameron’s replacement by a lady who didn’t seek the premiership.
I’m reminded of theologian NT Wright’s interview with Christians Today (publ 24.2.2016): “God will hold rulers and magistrates to account for the discharge of this responsibility. In other words, neither anarchy nor tyranny”. Basing this upon Paul’s instruction in Romans 13, he implies Christians should submit to governing authorities and limit our political role. BUT this begs the question: are we to do so when they fall under the control of Revelation 13’s demonic powers and their ‘Mark of the Beast’? No way!
In the next two parts I’ll tell how I came across that prophetic word and its forecast for fulfillment in 2016 (!), as well as to how it may relate to a spiritual battle for New Britain.
