Is this another sign from heaven?
Right next to today’s Matt cartoon on the front page of The Daily Telegraph, one of four news items carries the following headline with lead-in paragraph:
Brussels ‘gravy train’ breaks down
‘It is often seen as the ultimate metaphor for Brussels excess.. Now the EU “gravy train” [my link] has ground to a halt. The charted train, which carries MEPs and official from the Belgian capital to Strasbourg every month for sittings of the European Parliament, broke down outside the French city and its passengers were stranded for three hours. Meanwhile,Theresa May last night agreed to compromise with Tory MPs on customs to head off a rebellion over key Brexit votes…’ (cont’d page 4).
NB: it’s just one of the benefits ‘Remainers’ want to keep by staying in the EU!
James explains, ‘Every month, the entire European Parliament – 4,000 people and 2,500 trunks of documents – decamps from Belgium to Strasbourg, which costs £150 million a year. The exodus, dubbed the EU’s “travelling circus”, is the result of an agreement struck during the Edinburgh summit in 1992. Under the deal, committee and group meetings are held in Brussels but the 12 annual plenary sessions are held in Strasbourg….’
(Little wonder auditors often have difficulty signing-off the EU’s annual accounts.)
Is this combination of headline and image significant?
It reminds me of Genesis 11:1-8 where the Lord God brought a stop to the building of a tower to reach the heavens, the purpose of which was so that “we may make a name for ourselves”! In that manner was manifested the spirit behind Humanism and Globalism.
Therefore, does this news indicate God’s hand is at work to fulfill His declared promise to shake and bring down the EU – as with the original Tower?
