A quick recap on the importance of these updates relating to Brexit and the ‘Backstop’ and the word received from the Lord by Emma Stark of the Glasgow Prophetic Centre whilst in Belfast at the end of February.
Emma asked about Brexit, the Backstop and the Irish border and on where the solution lies. She was stunned to hear the response, “Emma, the solution is in Dublin.” Then the Lord explained there’s “a tangled ball of wool sitting in Dublin’s Parliament building and the end of that ball of wool is in the hands of Leo Varadkar, the Taoiseach, or prime minister of Ireland.” This most significant word explains the necessity for leaders of the north and south to work together in a new way to iron out issues preventing Brexit.
Once again for our information, our fellow watcher overseas, Roger Jervois, reports on what he’s seen in the Ulster press, as follows:
“Hi Richard, Here is more confirmation of thawing relations between the political leaders within Eire/NI (per Irish Premier Hails Centuries-old Friendship Between Ireland and US – 17 April)
“Leo Varadkar has hailed the country’s continuing relationship with “our friend” the US.
‘The Irish Premier was speaking as he hosted a reception at Dublin Castle attended by the United States House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi. ‘Also attending were TDs, Senators, Garda Commissioner Drew Harris and Democratic Unionist leader Arlene Foster.
‘Mr Varadkar added that Ireland will do everything the country can to avoid a hard border.
‘He added: “Last week in Brussels we agreed to give the UK more time to ratify the Agreement and when that is done we look forward to securing a partnership with the UK. We want it to be as close as it can possibly be.”
I also note the article continues with the Taoiseach saying (emphasis mine),
“I know you (US) will be there as you always have in the past to help us build a better future. Irish men and women have helped make America great. Ireland has become a home from home for so many Americans.
“We want Ireland to act as a political and economic bridge between the EU and the US. Given our shared language and history, it means the US and the EU can better relate to each other on a political level.”
Mr Varadkar added: “Today we are working to preserve all of that which has been achieved in the past and no matter what happens with Brexit, we will do everything we can to prevent the return of a hard border. In this we are backed by countries across the EU and indeed our friends in the United States.”
Today Roger writes, “And more statesmanship from God’s man of the hour in power” (per Nationalists in Northern Ireland Will Not Be Discriminated Against – 18 April):
‘In his annual address to Seanad Eireann – the upper house in Dublin – Mr Varadkar said: “The Withdrawal Agreement contains a commitment from the UK that Brexit will not result in any diminution of the rights, safeguards and equality of opportunity as set out in the Good Friday Agreement.
“I have discussed with Prime Minister (Theresa) May the responsibilities of the UK Government under the Good Friday Agreement, with or without a deal.
“No matter what happens, there are a number of areas on which we can provide reassurance for Irish citizens living in Northern Ireland. Irish citizens in Northern Ireland will continue to be European citizens in all circumstances. They will continue to enjoy the right to travel and work and study freely throughout the EU, benefiting from the important rights not to be discriminated against on the grounds of nationality while doing so.”
‘…He thanked both houses of the Oireachtas legislature for showing “unity” in dealing with Brexit, particularly the Brexit Omnibus Bill which was passed last month.
“This landmark piece of legislation, crossing the remit of nine Government departments, focuses on protecting Irish citizens, assisting businesses and jobs, and securing ongoing access to essential services and products,” he added.
“Our work complements the steps under way at EU level to implement measures to mitigate the impact of a no-deal Brexit.”
To gain the full sense of these press reports please be sure to read both articles in full.
Clearly, he is approaching Brexit from a different stance, one unrelated to what 17.4 million Britons voted for – the separation of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland from rule by the European Union. Nevertheless, some sort of progress is under way, as indicated in what Emma Stark received from the Lord.
Moreover, I’m aware advances of a conciliatory spiritual nature between north and south Ireland are happening this week and we praise the Lord for what He’s doing therein.
