The deliberation of how, when and why we should leave the EU over the last three years has left the nation in chaos. They say, ‘a week is a long time in politics.’ Goodness me, the speed at which things are changing in the political landscape of our nation, if it were a circus act. would resemble ‘the wall of death,’ you know the act when a motorcyclist at high speed goes around and around a circular wall which looks like a large barrel. You can almost hear the circus band in the background.
Those abroad, who have been watching the wrangling and shenanigans in our political corridors are as confused as we are. The last few days have seen parliament called back from recess because of an unlawful prorogation into scenes not unlike those found on a baying crowd at a cockfight. The scene was described by the speaker, John Bercow, as the worst he’d seen in his 20 years in parliament. The atmosphere was childish and unpalatable because of its toxicity.
The country is divided as are our political parties. When the country should be pulling together, when the people should be looking for what is best for us as a nation, they instead look to individual agendas and outcomes. Surely, as in all times of struggle, people should put petty differences and goals aside, to seek mutual agreement in pursuing a victorious outcome. What better working partnership could there be if those who agree with you, work with you?
We have seen our leading party pulled apart through disagreement, and the boisterous childish squabbles paraded in parliament have been utterly disgraceful and shameful.
Personally, I would have looked at closing parliament down until we could find a decent and brand new people’s representation across parties. The arguments and scaremongering propagated by media tactics, have, let’s face it, done their job. The people are afraid and even those who voted to leave the EU have had second thoughts.
We must also understand that the UK is not the only member state who wishes or has contemplated leaving the EU. The EU is ultimately a very big bank which treats countries as satellite branches, manipulating national wealth from one branch to another. In doing so it controls the health and wealth of each economy. If the EU puts a country in debt, because it has manipulated its economy, that country will be forever in debt to the EU Central bank and will never be allowed to leave. That country will become owned by the bank, fundamentally. One way that this will become clearer is the reform of the EU fiscal policy, and a single currency which will come into effect in 2020 and also lead to more power for the EU central bank. The single currency will then place a single unified currency value overall member States. If the currency, and therefore the economies of the combined states, are centralised, it would seem logical to centralise and harmonise taxation also. These are two areas which seem to have escaped the main rhetoric of the Brexit negotiations. Our focus very quickly moved away from the original concern of immigration in our country, to one that has predominantly focused on trade.
It may have escaped most people’s notice, that the vote to leave the EU was not dependent on any type of deal. Yet, Theresa May pushed her agenda on trying to establish one. That in my opinion, has scuppered the process. Will PM Johnson, concede also to one? I am, at this stage, not convinced. There is a very cunning game going on.
What ultimately is the big deal with leaving the EU? I would like to examine the preposition in its name. The EU-European Union, to me, simply states that the European countries have agreed to work together, supporting one another, in economic growth, development, and welfare through an agreement. This agreement will see transfer of labour across borders in order to create unified movement. In this agreement each country maintains its own identity and cultural heritage, thus adding colour to the union of nations. I don’t find anything wrong with this. However, when this agreement is insidiously and cunningly changed by manipulating and instigating laws that most of us are totally unaware of and that force us all ultimately into servitude, then something has to be done. What generally happens to a people group who find themselves in such a situation is that rebellion brews and civil war is the result. The member states as far as I am aware, did not sign up to losing their identities or being controlled by a single imperial power, nor did they agree to become one country or as was suggested part of larger created member states, where national boundaries are created to create zones or counties.
I am not an economist or politician, so will not presume to write under any of that authority. However, I am sure it is not out of the reach of most people’s understanding that the centralisation of the EU by creating a confederacy of States is not healthy for anyone. Europe is not a fledgling nation, like for instance the US. We have thousands of years of social histories, wars, and struggles behind us. The goal of creating the united states of Europe envisages one nation with confederate states. The EU, in order to do this must have executive power, create a sovereign government, an army and foreign and trade policies. The establishment of these areas provide the legal constituents of statehood or a single national identity. The EU will become a suprapower.
The foundation of this suprapower could well be the one that the book of Revelation speaks of.
The mark of the beast is one given to everyone who buys into the system so that they can trade and make transactions. The book of Revelation tells us that there will be two beasts released, which will prepare the way and come under the sovereign authority of the dragon.
Rev 13 – The Beast from the Sea
13 And the dragon (Satan) stood on the sandy shore of the sea.
Then I saw a [vicious] beast coming up out of the sea with ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten royal crowns (diadems), and on his heads were blasphemous names. 2 And the beast that I saw resembled a leopard, but his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth was like that of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. 3 I saw one of his heads which seemed to have a fatal wound, but his fatal wound was healed; and the entire earth followed after the beast in amazement. 4 They fell down and worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; they also worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like (as great as) the beast, and who is able to wage war against him?” 5 And the beast was given a mouth (the power of speech), uttering great things and arrogant and blasphemous words, and he was given freedom and authority to act and to do as he pleased for forty-two months (three and a half years). 6 And he opened his mouth to speak blasphemies (abusive speech, slander) against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, and those who live in heaven……
The Beast from the Earth
11 Then I saw another beast rising up out of the earth; he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke like a dragon. 12 He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence [when the two are together]. And he makes the earth and those who inhabit it worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs (awe-inspiring acts), even making fire fall from the sky to the earth, right before people’s eyes. 14 And he deceives those [unconverted ones] who inhabit the earth [into believing him] because of the signs which he is given [by Satan] to perform in the presence of the [first] beast, telling those who inhabit the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded [fatally] by the sword and has come back to life……
…16 Also he compels all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead [signifying allegiance to the beast], 17 and that no one will be able to buy or sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let the person who has enough insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the [imperfect] number of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. (AMP)
When we read these passages, we see that there are three distinct powers that will come upon the earth. Their distinctions lie in their specific tasks: to bring blasphemy, turning many away from God, by imitating God – to bring economic control over the peoples and to bring complete sovereignty over all the nations.
Jesus gave two distinct periods that would be joined together before He returned. He called them the days of Noah and Lot.
26 And just as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the time of [the second coming of] the Son of Man: 27 the people were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, [they were indifferent to God] until the day that Noah went into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 It was the same as it was in the days of Lot. People were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building [carrying on business as usual, without regard for their sins]; 29 but on the [very] day that Lot left Sodom it rained fire and brimstone (burning sulphur) from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.
These two days reflect the first two beasts. The day of Noah tells us that wickedness was upon the earth. Men had turned away from God and no longer saw their sin — they were indifferent to God. The time of Lot speaks of an economic period when men will be concerned in gaining wealth and power; they will also be unconcerned about their sins. For them it was business as usual.
It is important to understand that the dragon is allowed to give authority to the two beasts. The dragon’s leash is let out by God in order to bring destruction and judgment over sin.
These times will gain momentum in the coming days as the authority of the beast system is revealed. Will the nations of EU unify under this system? It would seem that such a move could be on the cards. However, for God’s people, there is another plan. God has devised a system also that will see the extraction of His children from the coming judgement. Many will be deceived by the beast system. They, the unconverted ones will undertake the giving of the mark in pursuit of what the dragon has to offer. Others, those with wisdom and insight, given by the Holy Spirit, will survive this tribulation period.
The scribe Ezra, revealed to a people that the time of exile was coming to an end and the possibility to restore the temple and return to the land was likely if the people repented and turned back to the Lord. During this great move the people would be given the wealth of nations to do it.
The sneaky tail of the serpent has slid into the corridors of power, disguised as justice and righteousness. We have come to know them as the Noachide laws. We have written on the Noachide laws in previous articles. Familiarise yourselves with them and laythem side by side with the truth. We have witnessed their embedding into the UN and US constitutions, in particular the US celebration of ‘education day,’ inaugurated by Ronald Reagan in 1987. The world is being made ready to embrace the beast system through these laws. The Noachide law, in brief was propagated through the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. He was the seventh leader of a major Hassidic dynasty. On the surface, these laws they appear to reflect the commandments, but they deny Christ.
On September 25, the 5,780th anniversary of the day on which Jewish tradition holds the world was created, the Sanhedrin is holding a conference for the emerging organization of 70 Nations. It will culminate on Friday, September 27 with a ceremony in which an animal sacrifice will be offered on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem to renew the covenant made between God and all of mankind. The Noachide laws are so called because they are considered to have been given to Noah by God for the benefit of all mankind – the 70 nations that come from his offspring.
Here is the declaration of the nascent Sanhedrin released to the 70 nations for Hanukkah to be read at a ceremony in Jerusalem on the last day of the holiday. The ceremony will include the consecration of a stone altar prepared for use in the Third Temple. The declaration is intended as an invitation to the nations to participate in the Temple and to receive its blessings.
The Song of Israel and the World – Sanhedrin’s Declaration
“The name Yisrael, by which Jacob was called and all of his descendants after him, indicates the connection of the people of Israel to the Creator, and this connection is also strengthened through the singing of the Song of God, which is achieved through the Book of Psalms. The highest purpose of song is to praise the Creator.
It is for this purpose that on the 25th of Elul (Sept. 3), the Sanhedrin and the Mikdash Educational Center hosted the World Creation Concert as a musical gathering for all nations to give thanksgiving to the creator, to share with all mankind the gratitude for His mercies that fill creation. All of humanity needs to prepare for the day that the Lord will reign in Zion, when they too will make pilgrimage to Jerusalem to take their part in the Temple service.
The sages teach us that the world stands on three things: on Torah, on the Temple Service, and on acts of loving-kindness. Lacking the Temple service the world is like a throne that stands on two legs.
We are very close to the time about which the prophets of Israel prophesied that the God of the world who created everything will be called by the world in the name of the God of Israel, for only the people of Israel remained attached to Him.
Humanity created religions such as Christianity and Islam that served as instruments throughout history to bring humanity closer to this great day, when everyone would recognize the God of the world that was revealed on Mount Sinai in a desert that belongs to no people. It should be emphasized that the Ten Commandments that were given at that time belong to all the nations. They were heard all over the world in 70 languages so that every nation would hear these things in their own language, the echo of things. This is as witnessed by the reality that it is the only book in the world printed in every language that has a printed book and was hinted at by the Prophet Zephaniah.
For then I will make the peoples pure of speech, So that they all invoke Hashem by name And serve Him with one accord. Zephaniah 3:9
At that time, we will all serve the one Creator and fulfill the moral obligations incumbent on all mankind. This was the case since the beginning of creation, when he charged Adam with these obligations, and once again he charged those who left the ark after the Flood and Noah with his sons, and again at Mount Sinai, giving to humanity seven ironclad rules.
These are the seven messages of the Creator of the world to humanity known as the Seven Noahide Laws:
Belief in God: He who created everything. There is none besides Him and no one should turn away from Him.
Blessing Hashem (God, literally ‘the name’): Respecting the Creator and the sages who are familiar with His Torah, and respecting the places of worship where the Torah is learned and prayers are recited to him. It is forbidden, God forbid, to speak harshly against them or to curse them.
Stealing: The preservation of the rights of others to property and honor and body and not to desire to take anything belonging to others that is not for sale.
Laws: To establish courts to judge justice and to direct society and obey the orders and decisions of the courts.
Killing: Do not shorten the lives of people, including the lives of the terminally ill. The opposite is also true; to invest efforts to heal diseases and maintain health.
Have mercy on creatures: Not to be cruel to animals. One of the most forbidden acts is eating the organ or limb from a live animal. The animal must first be killed in a way that is less distressing such as cutting the neck.
Prohibition of prostitution: The mitzvah (Bible commandment) to build a proper family life. It is a severe prohibition to commit adultery with a married woman. It is also forbidden to perform a same-sex marriage. Also forbidden is sexual intercourse with animals and homosexuality.
Therefore, anyone who receives upon himself all of these seven rules in front of a rabbinic court has a special status in Judaism. Even though they are not Jewish, they have entered into a full partnership in the service of God.
God’s call to return his people to his land will show that the belief of some nations that Israel was in exile as a punishment was a mistaken belief. The exile was only in order for Israel to serve as an example to the nations for serving God. Were it not for the exile, Muhammad would not have known God and would have been idolatrous like his other brothers. Were the Jews not in Rome, the idolaters would have remained to this day. The Torah was translated into Greek, and the nations copied the word of God because there were Jews in the Egyptian exile.
Now, it is time for the Creator’s people to return to their land, and from here light will come forth to the world. And when we merit it, and the Temple will be restored and built on its place, then even more will all the nations realize that the time has come to worship God. The crisis of religion today is a preparation for the true worship of the Lord.
In conclusion: Anyone who wants to accompany us, to be a partner in serving God, and to connect with his people, must be a believer in the God who was revealed at Sinai, and to be as the people of Israel who were present there and preserved this status to this day.
We see God’s hand clearly in the miracle of the Jewish state that arose again two thousand years after its destruction. It is incumbent upon all those who accompany us to try as much as possible to spread the belief according to the prophets, just as the Jews guarded and observed their words and to prevent, God forbid, the spread of man-made religions. Those who do so must also aid the Jews in observing what God commanded them. God required of the Jews an additional amount, more than he required from the other nations since the Jews will serve as the priests of the mankind. And the other nations should not, God forbid, try to influence his people to join their religions.”
Rabbi Dov Stein, Secretary of the Sanhedrin, described the dire need to replace the United Nations.
“We now live in an era when threats are global and not limited to one country,” Rabbi Stein told Breaking Israel News. “This is true of weapons, environmental issues, and even social issues. The solutions must come from a universal effort. The United Nations has failed in its mandate by rejecting God as the creator and the Noahide Laws common to all of mankind.”
As an example, Rabbi Stein described the resolution being drafted to make abortions and assisted suicides a “universal human right” which the rabbi said violated the Noahide law prohibiting murder.
“They have rejected the basics of humanity that were given at Sinai. We have to re-educate the world in order to address these issues. We need a universal organization that will return to the Bible, re-educate the world. This is not a religious initiative. This is a national initiative with each nation bringing its special aspect, all nations joining together in Jerusalem, where the world was created.”
In conjunction with this, we will see the focus of US President speech to the UN on religious tolerance and the push forward of the Human Fraternity for world peace document signed in February 2109 between the Pope and Grand Iman of Al Azhar, Ahmad Al Tayyeb formalise in essence the Chrislam league. If this is not bad enough, the designs for the one world Abrahamic Family House centre is set to be built by 2022 in Abu Dhabi.
This event, I believe, will accelerate the building of the third temple. Christians, especially leading figures in the charismatic, evangelical, and some in the Hebrew roots movements, are pushing this event. But this is a false flag. It will establish a false temple where the worship to YHVH without Yeshua is offered. According to the Noachide law, the worship/acknowledgement of Yeshua is blasphemous. We can see that whatever God does, the enemy will try to copy. Great changes are taking place in the middle east.
As we see this new world system rolled out, we are reminded by the apostle John to be wise and seek insight. Ezra’s cry to a people called by God’s name is to come out from Babylon and to live in a new restored order with the word of God central to society. Isaiah’s words reflect the same cry.
6 Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call on Him [for salvation] while He is near.
7 Let the wicked leave (behind) his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the Lord,
And He will have compassion (mercy) on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your waysAnd My thoughts higher than your thoughts.
10 “For as the rain and snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth, making it bear and sprout, and providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11 So will My word be which goes out of My mouth;
It will not return to Me void (useless, without result), without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
12 “For you will go out [from exile] with joy
And be led forth [by the Lord Himself] with peace;
The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,
And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
We spent the beginning of this article looking at how divided our nation has become and to some degree how the seed of division is growing among member states of the EU. The chance that the EU will be reformed to hold on to its power will be reflected in the structure of the Church. The Church today is as divided as ever. It seeks coherence through programmes and initiatives, believing that together they bring unity. But unity without the Holy Spirit is not unity at all. It prevents the body because of fundamental differences in doctrine, from maturing. The revelation of God’s restorative plan for Israel is key to growth. Failure to accept it will retard development. It will lead and leave many in captivity. The commission of Messiah, was given to bring freedom to the captives, sight to the blind and mobility to the lame. These were all conditions of a disobedient people who had turned from God and found themselves in exile. But each verb added to the condition makes one ambient, moving with purpose and vision. Following the Holy Spirit means we are moving as He is moving. The Holy Spirit comes to lead us into all truth, and denying that truth, not walking in the work of the Holy Spirit, is the forbidden sin. For such that deny the truth, there is no turning back to repentance.
In these days, there is no time to mince words or to speak softly to deaf ears. God’s voice compels us to go out and to preach the gospel of good news to those in captivity. The way out begins when prison doors are flung open by some unseen forces. As the enemy makes his last-ditch effort to keep many unfaithful, Isaiah’s word in chapter 59, tells us that it is our own crimes that separate us from God. When we are asking the question “Lord, Lord, where are you, why do you hide your face from us, why do you not hear our cry?” The Lord answers and He becomes the accuser. Our ways are not His ways; we are saved and forgiven by grace. So in these turbulent, chaotic and divisive times, we need to retune to the Father’s voice, refrain from rebellion and yield to the move of Holy Spirit. This will bring true power and peace to God’s people and their nation.
