Mulling over ‘May-hem’, the Battle for Britain, the EU elections

[Prepared on Thursday 23rd May, the afternoon before PM May’s resignation, and held pending permission for added quotation.]

Such exceptionally historic days for our nation and, as a consequence, for the federal union of European nations. Therefore, I offer a few thoughts jotted at the beginning of April and then on the subsequent launch of the Brexit Party and Friday’s unexpected elections for UK representatives to sit in the European Parliament!

Seven weeks ago today I jotted thoughts percolating in my mind over the demise of democracy, as shown in public reactions to the legitimate result of the largest vote in British history encouraged by our dishonest representatives in Parliament, aided and abetted by grossly muddled and incompetent government. We see the collapse of the Conservative party as its leader Theresa May scythes through its grassroots’ support, on top of the ‘May-hem’ in politics, media and across public and business domains.

AND what an astonishing week it’s been with the whole party now against its leader as Prime Minister, but who steadfastly refuses to resign – yet!  I regret to come to no other logical conclusion but that Mrs May has deliberately betrayed the electorate and trying to compromise with every shade of opinion.

Also, I’m reminded how the grave state of national breakdown, not only politically but also spiritually and therefore morally, exactly fits what I saw emerging out of thin air 15 years ago as an open vision of Britain (as here).

Let me stress straight away, as when collating my expanding series of blogs about the EU and the In/Out question: my own politics are non-partisan because the Kingdom of God has priority.

SOME SCRIPTURES

Let’s check a couple of pertinent New Testament scriptures penned by Paul. The first was written about 10 years before Nero persecuted Christians after the great fire of Rome, and then followed by many other persecutions across the Roman Empire. Yet such atrocities did not result in this passage’s ‘redaction’ at the hands of the early Church for they appreciated the essay’s content was inspired by the Holy Spirit; that is, they were words from God Himself. Here’s the basic Christian perspective of worldly, ruling authorities:

Submit to Government

1. Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. 5 Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor. [Romans 13; courtesy Biblegateway.com]

Another ten years and Paul instructs his protégé Timothy upon responsibilities in caring for souls:

Pray for All Men

1. Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in [authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. [1 Timothy 2, courtesy Biblegateway.com]

MODERN & BIBLICAL PROPHECY

Therefore, much as it is right to weigh, test and question prophetic words that seem to have endorsed Mrs May’s premiership, nevertheless according to scripture her position and authority are God-ordained. So, even if we doubt a prophet’s claims about a word from God saying she’s His person for the UK (and infer they come from the prophet’s opinion only), such a claim is nevertheless accurate in being in accord with scripture.

After all, the Lord used satan and its schemes promulgated through the leaders of the ancient Jews for His purposes in bringing about a plot to crucify His own son, our Lord Jesus Christ, for our own good…!

So, we could say even arch-betrayer Judas Iscariot was God’s man for that time!

Thus the Lord is no doubt using Mrs May and the may-hem she’s created, as well as manipulated within her government, party and Parliament to bring about His purposes and Britain’s End-time destiny in Him. All this unprecedented chaos and confusion fully accords with what some prophets said about the purpose behind these convulsions.

In other words, our fuller prophetical understanding of the mess the nation has fallen into, lies in not only national leaders’ rank rebellion against God and their disavowal of our unique, most ancient Christian heritage, but also in an appreciation that our turmoil and humiliation is precisely what He is permitting for our own eventual good.

Furthermore, let’s remind ourselves of the mechanism of this great apostasy foreseen by Paul and stand in dreadful awe and holy fear of his description of how God will allow and enable those reprobates to empower, yet imperil, themselves. Note how it happens:

‘…The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusionthat they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.‘ [2 Thessalonians 2:9-12, emphases added]

BREXIT PARTY’s STANCE

Since my drafting the above, Nigel Farage has returned to politics with the launch of the Brexit Party and spectacularly overtaking Conservative and Labour support, as shown in pre-election polls (as herein). We’ve now witnessed the electorate’s contempt for her  governments’ failure by Nigel thrashing and trashing Theresa’s Tories into fifth place!!! (Slumping to its lowest ever share in European elections.)

Further to his article on Brexit and our Democratic Responsibility, Dave Chapman tells me that “one of our prayer partners in the House of Prayer felt she had to write to some key politicians.” He writes, “Just thought: Old Testament prophets regularly got involved in speaking to kings in Israel, often giving their tacit backing as well as rebuking them.

“The particular prayer partner comments that Nigel Farage’s ancestors were French Huguenots, so like Trump, there is a trace of steely Godly influence somewhere in his DNA.  In fact, after the Referendum result she wrote to him – because she believed the Lord prompted her to – commending him and thanking him for all his input. 

“She specifically said to him that there was another who was reviled, in fact even more than he, and was crucified for such as us.  Some time later she had a reply, apologising for his delay in responding, as he’d decided to write personally to everyone who wrote him.

“From that letter it became clear to her that he understood our heritage in this Nation was of a Judeo-Christian nature and there would be a real battle to maintain it, even though he did not have her kind of faith.”

GOD’S STRATEGY FOR EU ELECTIONS?

Now permit me to speculate: if the Brexit Party wins the European elections in Britain by a landslide then their representation in Brussels will give huge support to other nations’ rejection of the EU’s dominance, thereby assisting in its prophesied downfall. In fact, the one-time Prime Minister of the Czech Republic ended his speech at the Party’s Olympia Rally almost pleading, on behalf of the peoples in Europe who want to be free of the EU’s domination, that Britain lead the way by completing our exit.

Had Mrs May not been so obdurate in delaying implementation of Brexit, then Britain would have left the EU on 29 March and we wouldn’t be eligible for representation in its parliament – and thus unable to rock the EU’s boat, as is likely with the Brexit Party’s expected wins.

So in some mysterious way, maybe the now resigned Prime Minister Theresa May and ‘reignited’ politician Nigel Farage are actually serving the Lord’s purposes!

As Dave closes our correspondence: “Btw, what would Leave voters have done in these EU Elections if there were no Brexit Party?  Must have been a ‘God thing’!”

  1. What I really liked listening to Nigel Farage after the election results on “Good Morning Britain” was how he acknowledged we want more than Brexit, we want reform in our politics, constitution, and economics. I like him.

  2. Thank you to Chris Moyler and Maxine Phyllis for their informative discussion on this posting’s Facebook entry, and which reads:

    CM > How indeed would Leave voters have been able to vote, if the BREXIT party had not been created? Yes! Most certainly it was a God thing!
    So what is happening here? Actually, a very similar dynamic to what is happening in the US.
    What we are witnessing is the exposure of leadership that controls people through deceit, rather than serving them, and seeking the common good.
    The EU is all about centralised, unaccountable control. For some time, its nefarious central purpose, the construction of an EU superstate, has been well hidden by our leaders, but now it is being put on full view.
    And, most importantly, the willing participation of UK leaders in that grand EU vision, is now being laid bare.
    What is going on here? The LORD is red-pilling the UK! He is waking us up to plots and plans of leaders who are absolutely determined to destroy our Judaeo-Christian heritage.
    And they have been plotting and planning this for a very long time, using our national leaders- of both stripes- as their puppets.
    It is absolutely true, and you have given us a timely reminder in these scriptures, that the LORD ordained national leaders. Because it is He who created national and local government for our common good, we need to pray for and support that government.
    BUT, and this is a huge BUT, our support is NEVER to be a blind support. When a national government strays from God’s heart, values and laws, the job of the Church is to intercede, and to the call the civic authorities to account.
    The true pattern of authority is that it should be the Church who runs each nation, not by vying for temporal power, but by abiding with Christ, and decreeing his authority.
    But is the Church actually doing this? No, it’s going with the flow of the world, hence its present mess.
    The company of God’s people has lost its ability to discern right from wrong, and its ability to see prophetically ie to see the world through the lens of heaven.
    This is why the modern prophetic movement is poised to give great assistance to God’s people. It is able to give piercing insight in a manner that cannot be perceived naturally.
    And this is why it is critical to nourish and cherish the modern prophetic. Without it, we are blind and leaderless!

    MP > I’m always reminded that the prophetic ends up standing with the Lord for Israel and Jerusalem. There’s a point where the prophetic gives way to perfection by a personal taste of the cross, and then “the prophecies cease” (1 Corinthians 13). As Jesus said “Surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem” (Luke 13:33).

    CM > I believe that what the LORD is doing at this present time, is to uncover the work of the globalist Cabal, Babylon the Great, aka Satan’skingdom.
    Much has been penned upon this subject, I know, but the LORD has been helping me and many others to see BG with fresh eyes.
    The critical place of change for me, was when the LORD downloaded Israel inside me, during a single meeting at Passover 2008. It has taken me 11 years thus far to work through that prophetic revelation, and many layers of further revelation have followed that first one.
    You can read about this on my FB page “SINAI REVISITED.”
    What this revelation did for me, was to open my eyes to a reality, a spiritual reality, that lies behind what we can see with our eyes.
    As the LORD taught me to honour his work with the Jewish people, the by-product of this was that I became able to see the work of the Antichrist spirit far more clearly.
    In other words, I came to see how he has infiltrated his subtle agenda into every aspect of society, but most especially into national government.
    My eyes were really opened as dug deeper into these matters, and a dear friend encouraged me to explore 9/11. I was highly resistant to this idea, but out of love and respect for him, I did so.
    What I discovered there has shocked me to the core of my being. I discovered that the government of the US, and not Muslim terrorists, planned and executed 9/11 against it’s own people.
    This is what’s called a ‘false flag’ attack; a deception that is designed to provide an excuse to wage war for nefarious purposes.
    Further digging revealed that the people responsible for 9/11 are part of a worldwide government/ financial/military Cabal, that engineers conflict for the purpose of global domination.
    And it is my deep conviction that our PM has been used by this Cabal to promote its own agenda, which is to keep the people of the UK in a perpetual state of debt and servitude.
    Whether our PM has willingly cooperated with this Cabal, or whether she has sought to do good but has ended up being used by them, is not for me to judge. That’s between her and the LORD.
    What is crystal clear, however, is that the people of the UK expressed their desire to leave the EU, but that a Remainer Parliament chose to oppose the people. Why they did so, will in due time be revealed.
    I know at this point that the eyes of most Christians in the UK will be either glassed over, or staring at the ceiling.
    However, I stand by every word that I have written here.
    A false demonic structure has, for a very long time now, infiltrated itself into our national governments, and now is the time to expose this structure, and to dismantle it.
    President Trump has been anointed by the LORD to lead the charge. However, most of the Western Main Stream Media (MSM) remains under globalist control.
    This corrupt MSM has been so successful in conditioning our minds, that we now believe their narrative to be a true one.
    Therefore, when our BBC attacks BREXIT or President Trump, we believe it is giving us impartial comment and reflection, but it is not. It is working for the globalists!
    Learning to love Israel recalibrates us spiritually. As we witness our politicians and media and church attacking her, we know that something is deeply amiss in the institutions of our society. And when we follow the rabbit trails that begin to open to us, eventually we discover this vast alternate reality that lies behind the facade of this present world.
    The LORD is now exposing that false facade, and he is exposing deep spiritual realities, for all who have eyes to see. And the prophets are leading the charge!

    MP > What I believe we are witnessing is the Kingdom of God overtaking the politics. The best we can hope for with the democratic process is that the people who stand for freedom and democracy will be used as facilitators to enable the separation of goats and sheep. The goats will continue to go further left (whether they represent the political right or left) and the sheep – those who seek first the Kingdom of God – will be free to do so. Then the Lord will say to those on the left – ‘Away from Me, I never knew you.’ (Matthew 25).

  3. In praying for all men, we certainly ought to include Nigel Farage among – if not more – than others, who I believe has been raised up as a Cyrus for this nation. The fact that in 2010 he survived a light aircraft crash – and also with the craft apparently hitting the ground nose first – must be a miracle of God’s protection. May he continue to be protected in all areas of his life!

    This is particularly apposite, considering today’s news that today that Boris Johnson is being taken to court for allegedly lying about the size of our financial contribution to the EU. His “crime” was to give it gross rather than net terms, which would be valid on the basis that leaving the EU would enable the UK to disburse the whole amount herself. The timing of this – coinciding with the imminent Conservative Party leadership election – is also of note. More ominous is the possibility of selective prosecutions against those who supported leave during the Referendum campaign – and who continue to do so, pointing to a politicisation of our legal system. Praying for those in authority should surely extend to prosecutors and judges for us to live peaceable lives.

    • With the attack on boris I am sensing the enemy is getting desperate and is coming out into the open.
      he does not want brexit. he knows that if the UK come out from under the control of the EU; a demonic secularist stronghold, revival could follow closely.
      I suspect that we will see more enemy attacks like these taking place and that we need to pray even more for leaders with the courage to bring about brexit
      As veronika west says the Lion is roaring and the enemy is scared! !!
      I pray the enemy gets more and more exposed as he runs out of places to hide and that peoples eyes start to be opened to what the enemy is doing through the EU and lying politicians.
      We need to keep remembering that we are not fighting flesh and blood but spiritual powers
      But we’re on the winning side; the Lion is roaring and the enemy is running; we need to press in to finish the job!

  4. Richard, this post seems to be at risk of toppling over into an almost Buddhist fatalism.

    There are many scriptures that talk about struggle and as is so often the case, emphasis and interpretation is key.

    Surely few would seriously argue that Solidarity’s resistance to Soviet authority was anything other than a good and Godly thing that brought down the wall and freed Eastern Europe. Was Cromwell under judgement for resisting Charles the first?

    It is possible that a Government can be wicked and loses its natural and spiritual authority, and when that happens surely resistance is not just okay, but our duty.

    I would be interested to hear what role you think resistance should play (if any) when Christians are faced with a corrupt or tyrannical government.

    • ‘Fatalism’ definitely not ‘…dumbuser…’ (or Patrick? – Which do you prefer? My preference is for normal courtesy rather than anonymity). I’m sharing thoughts and possible insights to stir and stimulate others, whilst trying to meet the injunction to avoid being judgmental.
      I acknowledge scripture seems to go only so far for there’s always been evil rulers and the political arena is one I’ve steered clear from until having to cover the EU and Brexit. SO it’s become one that’s increasingly hard to avoid and our roles need to be revisited in some depth because we need to become increasingly aware of the issues, especially as active Christians should be moving into training, in whatever Godly way that may be, for ruling and reigning with Christ upon His return. I’m not of the opinion we can presume this will be done after this life and with saints in heaven.
