Obviously, if you have been following my blog then you will know I supported Brexit, and if you want to know why, then check out my previous post.
Last week I awoke on the day of the referendum with nervous anticipation. I was feeling hopeful. I didn't stay up to hear the results, as I was too tired.
On Friday morning I didn't need my alarm clock, as someone was ringing the church bells with gusto. I knew that meant the United Kingdom had voted to leave the European Union.
Of course, we never expected it would be plain-sailing, but I don't think anyone really expected the hate, tantrums, and finger pointing that followed. It was blamed on the older generation. Apparently they had spoiled it all. People seem to forget that the older generation are the only ones who really remember life outside the European Union, and remember what we fought for in the two wars. I have been living my whole life under the auspices of the European Union. What started as something relatively reasonable has encroached into all areas of our lives. We may as well be ruled from Europe, because everything in European law trumps UK law. It would only have been a matter of time before we joined the Euro.
Jeremy Corbyn was democratically elected by the members of his party, yet he has been blamed for failing. For what? Maybe for failing to indoctrinate the leave supporters in his party? Apparently, he didn't set out the economic arguments for staying well enough. Or, maybe that was because there isn't enough credible facts to support staying. So, they resorted to scaremongering. Worrying people that they would have less money, and all chaos would break loose. Surprisingly, or maybe not surprisingly (After all the oldies know better than us) they didn't buy the argument. To be honest, I just didn't care. I realise that our nation has been drifting godlessly into an abyss, and the European Union has sped things up. If we want our Nation to be great again, then we have to repent and turn back to God.
Psalm 146:3 "Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help."
We need to look to the Lord even more now, and pray for our nation.
Don't trust Governments, and those in power. Above all we need not fear, because God has everything in hand. He can change the hearts of any in government.He will always accomplish his Sovereign Will, no matter how much people scoff. Especially in the last days people will scoff, and shall think that the Second Coming will never occur.
Checkout Revelation 13: "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."
One of the heads was wounded. Makes you think, doesn't it, is this us?
