England is in decline

I rarely have a word such as what I’ll say now but here it is: 

I claim to have a Word from GOD today, which of course needs to be tested:

Prophetic word

“England is in decline.” 

That may seem obvious, not particularly insightful or discerning as we look at the social and political landscape, but what I am suggesting is that this decline is not temporary nor based upon current circumstances, but rather there is a downward path which is set and irreconcilable until Jesus returns…. or unless something incredibly dramatic takes place — perhaps such as revival — to provoke a major transformation before He comes.

Although we pray consistently that Britain will be a sheep nation by Jesus’ gracious judgement and not a goat nation at the End of the Age (Matthew 25:32), nevertheless as I write now, Britain is in decline; I don’t think it’s going to bounce back. In particular, England is drifting downward into decay.

I heard GOD say specifically England

Historically, it was England that socially, morally, politically, geographically and economically dominated the world, arguably from the reign of Elizabeth I through Queen Victoria and beyond.  Although it sowed cultural disregard for other of those nations over which it ruled, dominating them with their superiority complex, it was a British Empire who’s power brought to the world an increase in prosperity, advancement in culture, education, health care; and of course it took the Gospel of Jesus to many nations — from the British Isles particularly to significant parts of the continent of Africa and into the Far East. It did so not without error unfortunately, attaching cultural bias to the Gospel and therefore misguiding and misrepresenting the Gospel in some situations. However, it’s my view that the good outweighed the bad. Great Britain did a lot of good in the world in a different era. However it has been a long time since it made positive contributions to the betterment of the world. It’s been living on borrowed time and the time is up.

What sort of decline?

What sort of decline is this nation experiencing? Is it purely a spiritual decline as Christianity is declining in popularity, or is this largely a political or economic decline?

I believe the moral decline in the West, including by association Britain, has had the direct consequence of destroying the fabric of society. Judeo-Christian values have been replaced with “anything-but” in the West. This has triggered instability worldwide. Social and spiritual decline has led to a decline in political and economic influence and power across the Globe, destabilising the balance of power. Britain is no longer fulfilling its mandate to influence the world in a life-giving way.

A USA and UK connected

The reason the UK and USA have often been in sync is because they are both leadership nations, capitalist and with the same bedrock of Judeo-Christian values. They’ve worked together based upon an interlinked history and world view. In recent years, the emphasis of both administrations have become increasingly secular and Globalist (with some exception as represented by a Brexit vote in the UK and Donald Trump’s presidency in the US), with the significant consequence being a decline in their international influence.

And so, as their influence and power wain, the world is looking at other influences. I believe GOD has allowed this because these nations have largely turned from Him.

Decline…

The decline is perhaps inevitable. Nations rise and fall. But if these nations turned back to GOD, perhaps the decline could be reversed. Certainly, without a turning, the end of the West as we know it, lead by these two nations, is finished.

What shall we do now

We who know GOD pray. Pray for stability. Pray for revival. Pray for GOD to reign in the hearts and minds of people, including government leaders and ministers. We pray and when asked, we may have to act: join support networks, even engaging in politics… That may seem to get our hands dirty, but if we are concerned, pray even, but never engage with our Members of Parliament or our Local Council, how can they know we object to ungodly decisions and biases. Unless we speak, they will not hear our voices.

Every blessing.

The will of the people & the will of GOD: Are they the same?

Democracy & Sovereignty vs Oligarchy and the Vassal State

(WARNING: This is purely an opinion piece; I share it and my accusations as such and am not purporting it to be fact*)

“And end to democracy!” the people cry. Is democracy dying?

Well, no, not really. But Theresa May has deceived her colleagues and the people of the nation of the United Kingdom. If this is Brexit, and “Brexit means Brexit,” then I see it as the end of the democratic state of the United Kingdom.

It’s happening all over the world… beginning in Europe, proceeding to the United States, and with these leading nations sucked into the masse indoctrination of the Global State, who’s left? Taiwan? As the best-acting form of democracy in Asia (according to a CNN report), most people vote, and their voices are heard. But it’s a tiny nation compared to the world, and how long can it survive against the tide going in the opposite direction?

As an intercessor, I feel just about defeated. I sort of “see the writing on the wall” for democracy and Great Britain….

The writing says, “The end of the Church Age, the End of Great Britain. The end of Democracy and the Sovereign State.”

Why? Because…

… though the move to Globalisation is, in my opinion, a bad thing, the media paints it as good by nature of their anti-nationalist/anti-patriotic stance. The youth don’t know any better for they have lived in a more global atmosphere than previous generations. So as old die out and young take over, it’s a race between Sharia Law (in the UK at least) and Globalisation. There’s little room for true democracy, where the population gets to hear issues presented in an honest (Ah, that’s gone too!) and impartial platform, and are given the right to vote as they see fit. That’s been seriously eroded by postal/on-line voting as well as the media propaganda.

Why do the Youth hearken to the cries for ‘Globalisation!’?

They are idealists, by and large. To “do good” through accepting migration, those of poorer nations get into a rich nation and will be better off. So goes the theory.


Ha. But with migration on a massive scale, and violence and crime becoming a part of it, the richer nations will not hold on to their wealth indefinitely, and the lowest common denominator will prevail.

Experience and an understanding of Jesus’ teaching tell me differently what works:

“Love the LORD your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and love your neighbour as yourself.”

I wonder how many who hear this only focus on the last phrase and see red if folks don’t agree. Others who see the whole commandment yet focus only on the latter part, if they believe in GOD at all, assume they understand and represent His position on giving to the poor.

But Jesus also said, “The poor you will always have with you,” and when you honour GOD first, and seek His voice, He will direct your path — including how to help the poor and distressed. I’m not confident that many people who see their democratic right to vote, see it linked with their faith, and seek to vote the way the Father guides.

Or perhaps, it is GOD Himself who wants democracy to end. Perhaps democracy is part of the deception — part of the “We can build the Tower (of Babel) and there is nothing we won’t be able to achieve”… Perhaps the ultimate has been being self-governed through democracy.

Or perhaps democracy has been a gift from GOD to mankind, so that we might experience man at his best… and worst…. and value our freedom as ordained by GOD.

All I know is, my intercessory life is hard-pressed to dive into prayer vehemently at present. I am, instead, dismayed and how the United Kingdom has been guided to a place of Brexit in name only, and there is a contrivance to keep it tied to the UK in spite of a democratic result that favoured the end of the ties.

I am reminded of the line from a film, delivered by Peter Finch…

“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

How about you?

Postscript:


I write this on the heels of a report in Paris, where currently there are riots. People are fed up with ever-higher taxes (a new 6% petrol/diesel tax has been imposed). The little man is fighting back. But will he win? The majority did vote for their current president, by the way, who has imposed these taxes… contrary to his promises before election, I believe.
