Now the Lord had said to Abram, “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.
“I will bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:1-3, NKJV)
As I write, Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, has received PM Theresa May’s letter of ‘Declaration of Independence’ giving notice of Britain’s decision to leave the European Union. She announced to the House of Commons that the Article 50 letter has been delivered. Hooray!

A year ago none would have expected such a severe shaking in government and change in leadership in the United Kingdom (as well as in the United States of America) – as said before, obviously the Hand of God must have been in this (eg here). AND, in accordance with what He revealed to one who listened to Him, He told his prophets in advance!
‘Surely the Lord GOD does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
‘A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?’ (Amos 3:7-8 NKJV)

Let us never, ever forget the essential prime point – whatever anyone may say – in leaving the EU is to remove ourselves from its inequitable system of judiciary injustice. That fact was well emphasised by David Chapman in The EU’s Background and An Alternative. Also, it’s featured strongly in Edmund Phillimore’s conclusions drawn a week before the June referendum, which closes by reminding readers:
‘Brexit will not restore us to godly government, for many of our politicians are secular humanists. But it will be a step in the right direction, taking us out of a system of government that does not acknowledge God and his sovereignty over his creation. It will restore us to the principles of our ancient constitution and democratic monarchy that honours God in the Coronation oath which still stands. We should trust God , and remember that he can restore life to dry and scattered bones.’ (Our Christian Heritage in Church and State – new addition to blog.)
In my humble opinion, leaving the EU will enable Britain to move back into its God-given destiny and, as Mrs May has a far better appreciation of the purpose and role of Israel in the world than anti-Semitic EU, we can expect the Lord to follow-up His promise to bless us – AND as arranged during PM Netanyahu’s visit to London last month, a British-Israeli task force is proceeding to prepare for new trade deals now Article 50 has been triggered. (After USA, the UK is Israel’s second largest trading partner.)
The USA should also be the recipient of scripture’s promised blessings too now there’s no longer any light showing between their alliance with Israel and their individual geopolitical interests.
TOWARDS A NEW ARAB SPRING
As in Prophetic Scripture Update #3, today’s meeting of Sunni Arab heads of states in Jordan may result in their acceptance of the Jewish state of Israel as a partner in working towards an acceptable solution to the Israel-Palestine issue. They may want to wave a ‘hammer’ at ‘mule-headed’ Mahmoud Abbas – and better still, clout him with one!
So, according to Genesis 12 all those Sunni nations will be blessed in dealing properly with Israel – and all parties thus move toward recognising Messiah Jesus. For decades the scenario given in Psalm 2 has applied in that intractable Middle-Eastern enmity, as well as all reprobate nations:
‘Why do the Gentiles throng tumultuously and the people plot a worthless thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His anointed, saying “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us”.
‘He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath and distress them with His deep displeasure… (NKJV)
The psalm continues to describe events, especially the declaration of Jesus as Mashiach or Messiah to the Jewish elders (Matt 26:63-66) and commissioning his disciples unto the nations. Its conclusion may be read as a promise to those who come to respect His people and their Anointed One:
‘Now, therefore, be wise O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with (reverential) fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son (embrace discipline, receive instruction), lest the LORD be angry and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little.
‘Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.’
That scripture may prophesy blessing upon that meeting and its outcome, all of which may fit in with an open vision I had when visiting Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship for the first time in 2003.
Being unfamiliar with the speakers I’d heard a little about them from Nina and knew so little about Heidi Baker of Iris Ministries (Iris Global). However, as she started addressing the conference I suddenly had an open vision as though I was in orbit over central Africa and saw tall flames leaping high into the atmosphere over the whole Mozambique area to the right. I then saw them sweeping up the eastern side of Africa and into Sudan and Egypt. Its Mediterranean coast sat on the curvature of the globe and I saw this holy fire go along it and across the Sinai peninsular into the Arabian peninsula! .
[Upon speaking to Rolland Baker about this, he replied it’s similar to what their director Supresa Sithole had seen for the ministry, which has brought whole Muslim provinces to Jesus.]
Therefore, we trust and pray the Lord is doing many new things globally today…
