Could England’s progress through the World Cup unite Britain after two years of deep bitter divisions over the democratic result of the UK Referendum on the EU??
Wimbledon tennis championship’s now on and, as we don’t follow football in any way, shape or form, there’s no contest over what we watch on TV – especially as the camera homed in on our 9-year old grandson and his mother sitting near the front of Centre Court, courtesy of last year’s ticket lottery, during Tuesday’s opening minutes of Rafa Nadal’s match! (Also, they were given seats in Court No.1 to watch his hero, Novac Djokovic.)
That delight helped us persevere with the BBC’s technical incompetence and lack of information in failing to deliver continuous, live pictures to internet-linked televisions!
On this blog’s Facebook version of my previous post on the England-Colombia match, Michael Nixon comments:
“May I share something, while watching the game I saw an intervention. The team looked definitely out, then saving the penalty and then scoring, turned the whole game around.
“I saw this as the country from nowhere, being a complete turn-around. Coming out of The E.U. taking control back from out of nowhere. The intervention is God, He is the game-changer….”
That’s precisely what Veronika understood too. I hadn’t intended interrupting the flow of the two guest posts by Dave Hood but got a prompting to check her site as I don’t get any feed from it. Upon reading her latest and surfing through bits of the video I knew it just had to be inserted into this schedule. So upon getting Michael’s comment I’ve now revisited what she says, namely:
“I was glued to my TV screen and, as I began to watch, the Lord clearly said to me, even before the game started, “Daughter watch! I’m going to confirm to you that I’ve overturned and reversed the curse that has been over the land.”
“The Lord showed me that the game would be prophetic sign about what’s happening between England and the EU…As I saw the game unfold and how dirty Colombia was playing and how badly the players were treating ours and how they were doing everything in their power to undermine and discredit our players, the Lord kept saying, “This is how the EU has been treating England”. So I kept praying in the spirit all through the game…”
[RB: See, for example, Maradona’s inappropriate insinuations noted by BBC Sport.]
“As they went into the penalty shoot-out the Lord again said to me, “Daughter watch, I am showing you and confirming to you My word to you, that I am overturning and reversing the curse over the land!” (She knew nothing about the ‘penalty curse’ until seeing next morning’s headlines.)
All in all, these two posts are wholly (and holy) appropriate for what’s revealed in the next part of Dave’s material…!!
Unbelieving, Undemocratic Bishop
Also yesterday, political blogger Adrian Hilton, aka ‘Archbishop Cranmer’, wielded his mighty ‘pen’ against the Bishop of Liverpool’s (and all undemocratic sorts) unsound public whingeing about the increasing possibility of no deal being agreed with the EU. In Deal or no deal. EU theology and Brexit ideology he concludes,
‘There may be a negotiated deal with the EU, or there may not. But to leave with no deal would not be senseless, irremediable evil, as the Bishop of Liverpool intimates, for the WTO is a beneficent and fraternal global union of law and order; of regulation and inspection; of facility and freedom. Pray against it, if you will, by all means; and signal your virtuous prayer, if you must, to the whole nation: #wisdom #consensus #listening #revisit. But far better and wiser would it be to subject your private revelation to the scrutiny of reason, and, instead of fomenting discord, to place your political conviction humbly at the feet of the democratic community: ‘Hearken unto the voice of the people…‘
To encourage his readers and share the benefits mine have gained through this blog, I joined in the usual extensive discussion by referring to some of our recent material on prophecies about Brexit and their approaching fulfillment. (To peruse discussion click preceding link and scroll to foot of the article.)
Moreover, if you’re a subscriber who’s especially interested in British history and our legal system, you’ll find a highly informative sub-thread based upon a contribution about oppressive Napoleonic Code vs English Common Law (wherein I remarked about King Alfred and a Spiritual Magna Carta).
In particular I liked an earlier, pithy remark from ‘Watchman’ in response to a reference to the National Anthem: ‘That’s a verse we don’t sing now. In my childhood I used to sing it with gusto, particularly the line “Frustrate their navy’s tricks”. It was a time when we were taught proper English history: that Britain rules the waves!’ (Emphasis mine)
According to Wikipedia’s entry on Rule Britannia, ‘This British national air was originally included in Alfred, a masque about Alfred the Great‘! Here’s its famous chorus:
‘Rule Britannia! Britannia rules the waves!
‘Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.’
Its third verse seems most appropriate for these times and what Dave Hood brings in the next part of his guest post.
