It is good Christians are gathering for prayer tomorrow in London. Brexit negotiations are at a crucial point. As always, it is the spiritual dimension of the EU which is vital to bear in mind. This link has all the short but (I hope) informative videos I made two years ago about the Tower of Babel, the Woman on the Beast, Satan’s Seat in Rome, and the EU’s original design as a revived Roman Empire.
But let us pray believers will also pray for repentance for Her Majesty’s Government. Because coming out of the EU, good as that is, will not solve the UK’s spiritual problems. Britain is deep in sin.
The United Kingdom leads the world in trying to force developing nations to accept ‘gay marriage’. At home, our Governments’ ‘sex education’ model promotes deviant behaviour among the young. Transsexualism is the latest fad, challenging God’s creation itself. It is child sexual abuse. And the Church in the UK tolerates it.
We are put to shame by Christians in Africa who would never accept the homosexual agenda in their schools. One of the reasons our politicians so hate Russia’s President Putin is that he instigated that nation’s anti-propaganda law, which forbids promoting homosexuality in Russia. What a total contrast with the UK, where to voice any kind of opposition to the gay agenda is to lose employment or be thrown off a university course.
And overseas, the United Kingdom has blood on its hands. I don’t where you are, but although I want to see souls saved into the Kingdom, I also believe it is good when people simply dwell in peace. The UK and US started a bloody civil war in Iraq. That led to the displacement, murder and loss of livelihood of hundreds of thousands including the majority of that country’s Christians. The same happened in Libya. On top of its lack of concern for those lives, our Foreign Office consistently fails to stand up steadfastly for Christians in Egypt or Pakistan. Let alone Saudi Arabia, one of our ‘gulf allies’.
United Kingdom helped start war in Syria
Latterly, our Government took against President Assad of Syria. Together with the US and George-Soros-funded Avaaz, we helped start a civil war in Syria. That caused wholesale loss of life and destroyed homes and businesses. It led to the rise of jihadists, not just those of Islamic State. Christians have been persecuted and and waves of migrants unleashed across Europe. Make no mistake, neither the UK Government nor its client jihadists care anything about Syria’s Christians. Nor do they care about its Druze community or Assad’s own Alawite minority.
Only the Russians stood with Bashar Al-Assad and Syria’s Christians. Yes, they were defending their Mediterranean base, but only the Russians saved Syria from a blood bath. They continue to help defeat the very same Islamists whom our government finance, to our national shame. So there’s another reason why our politicians hate President Putin.
I just thank God the United Kingdom is in no position to affect events in the far east. South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in has, for my money, shown more statesmanship than the lot of them. Let us pray for his peace initiative and that North Korea’s Christians may see light at the end of their dark night. The ambitious might even pray for repentance for North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. Imagine if he came to faith!
Ukraine destabilised by the EU
Then there’s Ukraine, where a Soros and EU-funded coup deposed a Russian-leaning elected president and threw a whole nation into turmoil. We showed here the role the EU and George Soros played in destablising Ukraine.
Eastern Ukrainian ethnic Russians naturally looked east for protection while Crimea took the opportunity to return to Russia. The affair was a financial disaster for Ukraine, not that the UK cares about that, and a setback for Western interests.
One fears any political solution will need clearer heads than have been in evidence recently. Even now, we hear the EU is trying to force Ukraine to accept gay rights so they can still join the EU! Why don’t they leave Ukraine in peace? Because the Eurocrats are empire-builders opposing the Lord and his Anointed. That sort never give up, do they?
The strange Salisbury Affair
And lastly, the strange Salisbury affair. There was never any nerve agent on the streets of Salisbury as our article showed but what led to Mr Skripal and his daughter being found comatose on a bench? What did DS Bailey find in their home? If there was no break-in there, did Yulia bring something in her luggage from Moscow? And if inadvertently, how was a poison triggered?
Somebody in Whitehall knows, but they aren’t saying. It’s far easier to rush to judgment, throw accusations about and look tough disrupting international relations and the cause of peace.
And the latest developments, with a fractious Russian press conference and Boris Johnson comparing President Putin to Adolf Hitler, and you begin to wonder at the sanity let alone the spiritual condition of those who lead us. Frankly, none of those in power is wondering where his or her next meal is coming from as they survey the ruin of their business in Salisbury, Damascus or Kiev. They are sitting down in comfort.
Lord, show us what can we do!
It will be natural to call out to God to send a revival, or repentance, and we should. But let us also ask the Lord in prayer what we can do in the midst of such home-grown national wickedness. I remember pointing out in this YouTube nanosermon, ‘The Prayer Meeting’, that our Father does not receive many prayers like that, and when he does receive them, he opens his heart to us.
2Chr 20:12 O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee. (KJV)
