Ukraine pleads for Britain & US to come to its rescue Deeply worried politicians inside Ukraine's parliament have pleaded with Britain and the United States to come to their rescue, after Russia was accused of launching a series of raids in the Crimea region. The two Western powers signed an agreement with Ukraine in 1994, which Kiev's parliament wants enforcing now. The Budapest Memorandum, signed by Bill Clinton, John Major, Boris Yeltsin and Leonid Kuchma – the then-rulers of the USA, UK, Russia and Ukraine – promises to uphold the territorial integrity of Ukraine, in return for Ukraine giving up its nuclear weapons. Article one reads: "The United States of America, the Russian Federation, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine... to respect the Independence and Sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine.” And Kiev is now claiming that their country's borders are not being respected. Daily Telegraph, February 28, 2014 EVENT COMMENT And at the time of the end the king of the South shall push at and attack him, and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots and horsemen and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries and shall overflow and pass through. Events in Syria nearly led to confrontation between America and Russia. Events in Ukraine may also lead to verse 40 of Daniel 11 being fulfilled…. This forgotten treaty signed in 1994 between Russia, America and Britain could drag the US and UK into WAR with Russia if Putin's troops intervene in Ukraine. That was the headline in a newspaper in the UK this week. The agreement states that the three countries will refrain from the threat or use of force against Ukraine. This agreement came about as a way of persuading Ukraine to give up its vast nuclear arsenal to Russia for dismantling. Ukraine was part of the USSR so ended up with the third largest nuclear arsenal in the world. It would only surrender these weapons if it felt protected. America and Britain in effect promised to protect Ukraine from aggression. This is why Ukraine this week asked these two countries to help. The king of the south is being asked to step in and push back the king of the north. They may be forced to do so… BIBLE QUOTE (Daniel 11:40 AMP)
UK Prime minister's belief in Israel 'unbreakable' David Cameron has said his belief in Israel is "unbreakable" while urging the country's politicians to pursue a deal with Palestinians to bring "an end of all conflict". He told Israelis to imagine "what this land would be like if a two-state solution was actually achieved". "We back the compromises needed - including the halt to settlement activity and an end to Palestinian incitement too. And we recognise the difficult and courageous decisions both sides are taking, not least with Prime Minister Netanyahu's decision to release terrorist prisoners, with all the anguish that can bring for affected families,” he said. He said that peace would not only bring security, but also deliver "extraordinary" economic benefits for the Israeli and Palestinians by enabling them to work together and forge international trade and business links. BBConline, March 12, 2014 EVENT COMMENT And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel The UK prime minister made his first ever visit to Israel this week. He talks like he supports Israel but his support is dependent on Israel dividing the land in two. He asks Israel to imagine what would be like living with two states. By backing this Cameron is breaking God’s everlasting covenant of giving the land to the Jews. But notice what he focused on – THE MONEY! Think about the extraordinary ECONOMIC BENEFITS says Cameron. The message is…Don’t worry about God and the land he has promised you (has given you) just think how rich you will be. Britain was once driven by belief that the land was the Jews. The British Balfour Declaration declared that Israel would become the homeland for the Jews. There was no mention on economics back then! Britain is Tarshish in the Bible. It says Britain would help Jews return to their land. But it also says that in the last days Britain would “commit fornication with all the kingdoms on earth”. Britain would grow wealthy and then rejecting by God would turn to mammon… BIBLE QUOTE (Ezekiel 34:13)
David Cameron welcomes first gay marriages Gay marriage will make British society stronger, David Cameron has insisted as an historic change to the meaning of matrimony comes into effect. Mr Cameron said the introduction of same-sex marriage in England and Wales - after a debate which bitterly divided his own party and pitted church against state - was a tribute to “the sort of country we are”. Writing in PinkNews, the gay and lesbian website, he said the redefinition of marriage was in keeping with Britain’s “proud traditions of respect, tolerance and equal worth”. But opponents of the change said it had “ripped up” the centuries-old understanding of marriage and divided the country. New polling seen by The Telegraph also shows that the issue could cost the Conservatives significant votes in the local and European elections in May. Daily Telegraph, March 28, 2014 EVENT COMMENT The earth suffers for the sins of its people, for they have twisted God’s instructions, violated his laws, and broken his everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse consumes the earth. Its people must pay the price for their sin. They are destroyed by fire, and only a few are left alive. BIBLE QUOTE (Isaiah 24:5-6 NLT) The very first legal gay marriage ceremony anywhere in the world was in the Netherlands in 2001. Today Britain becomes the 14 th country to allow gay marriage and ceremonies started at midnight. The UK prime minister said this morning "Congratulations to the gay couples who have already been married - and my best wishes to those about to be on this historic day.” It is indeed an historic day for Britain. It is a day when the depravity of homosexual behaviour was not only tolerated, not only promoted to our children but finally brought into the most sacred of religious services. Marriage. Marriage was instituted by God not man. It was God who designed it as the bedrock of civilisation. It was also symbolic of Christ and the ecclesia – God’s ultimate plan and purpose. We read in Isaiah 24 of the final judgement of the entire world. One of the 3 accusations is (as one modern version says) the people have “twisted God’s instructions”. This week Britain certainly has….
Queen meets Pope Francis for first time at Vatican The Queen has met Pope Francis for the first time, during a one-day visit to the Italian capital, Rome. The meeting in the Vatican was described as a private one and pomp and protocol were kept to a minimum. Earlier, the Queen and Prince Philip had lunch with the Italian President, Giorgio Napolitano, and his wife Clio at the Quirinal Palace. The Queen gave the Pontiff a hamper of British produce and received a lapis lazuli orb for baby Prince George. It is the Queen's first foreign trip since a visit to Australia in 2011. The Queen and the Pope exchanged gifts inside the Vatican. Pope Francis gave the Queen a royal orb made of lapis lazuli with a silver cross on top, for her baby great- grandson Prince George. The orb is an emblem of royal power which the ancient Romans used to represent the universe, before it was adapted by Christians who added a cross on top to represent the world under Christianity. BBConline, April 3, 2014 EVENT COMMENT And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the LORD will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth. To watch a YouTube presentation on all this please CLICK HERE Last week we wrote about world leaders queuing up to meet the Pope. Last week it was President Obama who paid him a visit. This week is was the turn of the Queen. The Queen is more significant than one may imagine. Her Biblical titles would read as follows – Royal ruler of Tarshish, latter day Queen of Sheba, Daughter of Tyre. The Queen is specifically mentioned in Isaiah 23! We are told in v15 that Tyre will be forgotten for 70 years according to the days of one king (Royal ruler). Tyre is NOT referring to ancient Tyre because it was destroyed at the beginning of the chapter. We are told in v6 that Tyre passes to….Tarshish (Britain). Therefore Tyre in v15 exists in Britain. Therefore the royal ruler is in v15 is British. We are told in v23 that Tyre will commit fornication with the kingdoms of the world. The Queen committed this this week BIBLE QUOTE (Isaiah 23:17)
'UK should get out of the EU,' says former French PM Britain should leave Europe because it is killing the European Union dream, a former French Prime Minister has said. In a blistering attack, Michel Rocard, a grandee of the French Socialist Party who served as premier under Francois Mitterrand, identified Britain as the source of all the EU's problems. "Britain is a great country that has always refused to allow Europe to interfere in its affairs. It has blocked any further integration," he told a French parliamentary magazine. "If they go, it becomes possible to respond to the needs of governing in Europe. Even Germany realises this and demands it. I hope for it a lot because they have prevented it from developing, they killed it.” Mr Rocard, 83, said that it was clear that the "British people want to end with Europe" and are only prevented from leaving the EU by Britain's political and financial classes. "British elites are afraid of the isolation that would result, that may weaken the City of London" he said Daily Telegraph, April 29, 2014 EVENT COMMENT And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. It possible we have still not seen this full development of 10 nations giving their power to Europe (the beast). The UK would not be part of this. Britain may one day leave the European Union. However it is not definite this needs to happen from a prophetical point of view. There are two arguments about Britain’s position in Europe. One is that (as we know) Britain is not part of the European beast system that stands against Christ. Britain is Tarshish and during the Gogian invasion stands with America (young lion) against the armies that invade Israel. Another view is that though all this is true it is possible for Britain to stay in Europe because from a military point of view Britain can still act alone. Isaiah 23 says the London will become like a harlot in the last days and become very wealthy. This is symbolic of Britain adopting European in thinking and becoming godless / obsessed with money. There is another view – a small group of nations could join together and leave Britain behind… BIBLE QUOTE (Revelation 17:12-13)
UK one step closer to quitting Europe Britain has moved a step closer to leaving the European Union after David Cameron declared “war” on Brussels over the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker. Keeping Britain in the EU “has got harder”, the Prime Minister said, after he was outvoted by 26 to two in his attempt to prevent Mr Juncker becoming the European Commission president. The result emboldened Eurosceptic MPs and Ukip supporters who want to leave the EU. However, Mr Cameron said he would wage a “long, tough fight” to reform Brussels before campaigning for Britain to remain in the EU in an in-out referendum he has promised to hold in 2017. The Prime Minister said the decision to nominate Mr Juncker, an arch-federalist facing questions about his drinking habits, represented “a sad day for the EU”. Mr Cameron said: “The European Council know that I’m deadly serious about EU reform. I’ve said I’m not going to back down. I won’t. Daily Telegraph, June 27, 2014 EVENT COMMENT And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. The beast = Europe The kings = national leaders Giving their power = giving up sovereignty BIBLE QUOTE (Revelation 17:12-13) So who is the new President of Europe? And why does Britain oppose him so much? Jean-Claude Juncker was one of the main architects of the euro. As one UK newspaper put it he bares “considerable responsibility for the flaws in its design which led to the years of economic stagnation and mass unemployment in which the union is still ensnared. He has never shown any public regret or remorse for these problems, however: he appears convinced like the true believer in some arcane faith that Europe’s “ever-closer integration” must be driven forward relentlessly, whatever the political, social and economic costs.” And that is the issue for Britain. Europe’s vision is ever closer union – giving up sovereign power. For Europe its about an ideology – a uniting of the continent. For Britain its just about the money. If we can be more wealthy then being in Europe is a price worth paying. That price though as just gone up!
Queen names new Royal Navy aircraft carrier The UK's largest warship marks "a new phase in our naval history", the Queen has said, as the vessel was officially named in her honour at a ceremony at Fife's Rosyth Dockyard. A bottle of whisky was smashed on the hull of the 65,000-tonne HMS Queen Elizabeth - the first of two new Royal Navy aircraft carriers being built. The Red Arrows flew over the dockyard before the ship was officially named. First Sea Lord Admiral George Zambellas said the ship was "fit for a Queen”. "HMS Queen Elizabeth will be a national instrument of power and a national symbol of authority," he said in a speech. "That means she will be a national icon too, all the while keeping the great in Great Britain and the royal in Royal Navy.” Addressing the audience, the Queen said the "innovative and first class" warship, the largest ever to be built in the UK, ushered in an "exciting new era”. “I believe the Queen Elizabeth will be a source of inspiration and pride for us all," she said. BBConline, July 4, 2014 EVENT COMMENT For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures. Pleasant pictures should be translated “desirable ships” BIBLE QUOTE (Isaiah 2:12+16) Pride and strength. Those were the two words repeated over and again during the ceremony of the launch of HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH. It is Britain’s largest and most powerful warship ever built. God hates pride. Interestingly the Bible has a lot to say about British ships! In the Bible Britain is known as Tarshish. The phrase “ships of Tarshish” occurs 6 times. Almost all of them are connected to them being broken because of PRIDE! Britain has become rich and proud. And yet has become godless and rejected God’s laws and his ways. Britain will be judged for this. HMS Queen Elizabeth is not going to succeed. Her pride will be based. Judgement is coming on the ships of Tarshish. Let us remain humble before God.
Germany asks CIA chief in Berlin to leave country Germany today asked the CIA's station chief in Berlin to leave the country in a dramatic rebuke to Washington after its security services uncovered two cases of alleged American spying in a week. The American intelligence official was told he was no longer welcome in a public signal of Angela Merkel's fury over US spying on Germany. It is highly unusual for a European ally to oust a CIA station chief and the move is the most dramatic response from Germany since it was disclosed last year that the NSA was monitoring Mrs Merkel's phone. "The representative of the US intelligence services at the United States embassy has been asked to leave Germany," a German government spokesman said. The two alleged cases of American espionage in Germany have added a new chill to the already-strained relationship between Washington and Berlin on intelligence matters. Daily Telegraph, July 10, 2014 EVENT COMMENT For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: BIBLE QUOTE (Isaiah 62:1-2) Relationships are breaking down around the world. We have Russia and America at loggerheads over Syria and Ukraine. We have Europe and Russia at loggerheads over Crimea. We have America and Europe (Germany) at loggerheads over the spying row. We have the whole of the Middle East in turmoil. Even out in the far east we have growing tension between China and Japan and North Korea and South Korea. Even without Bible in hand it must be clear to anyone who is watching that things are spiralling out of control. The whole of the world is on the brink. The vortex ultimately of course will be Jerusalem. But all the events described above lead us to Armageddon. War comes about when trust is broken and communication fails. If God was not in control the future of the earth would be total destruction. But God is in control. Although Armageddon is coming Jesus will intervene. Peace will come after the conflict...
he Britain and America implicate Russia in Flight MH17 missile attack Britain and America have implicated Russia in the “unspeakable” missile attack on Flight MH17 as diplomatic relations reached their lowest point since the Cold War. Barack Obama, the US president, described the deaths of nearly 300 people as an “outrage” as he issued a stark warning to Vladimir Putin, his Russian counterpart, for supporting the separatists who are thought to have fired the missile. David Cameron, the Prime Minister, said it was an “appalling, shocking, horrific” incident and added that “those responsible must be held to account”. Both leaders called for Mr Putin to allow the crash site to be “properly investigated” amid reports that armed separatists were denying investigators access. On a day of fast-moving developments and growing recriminations between the East and the West: Daily Telegraph, July 18, 2014 EVENT COMMENT And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. There is a massive provocation going to come from UK/US against Russia BIBLE QUOTE (Daniel 11:40) Things are getting out of control. Russia has supplied powerful weapons to the rebels in eastern Ukraine. It is believed that BUK missile system destroyed the passenger jet killing 300 innocent people this week. The BUK missile launcher is Russian made and looks like a large tank. You certainly couldn’t just buy one of these on the black market. Russia must have supplied it to the rebels. In fact there are pictures of a BUK missile launcher driving around eastern Ukraine over the last few weeks. The shooting down of this plane suddenly changes things. Many nationalities were killed including British and American. Apparently Putin has been refusing to accept calls from David Cameron. America is now considering even greater sanctions. Meanwhile Russia blames the Ukrainian government for these unfolding events. This shocking event undoubtedly will bring to breaking point the relations between Russia and America. The king of the north (Russia) and the king of the south (UK/US) are pushing at each other…
Russia threatens to hit British companies in 'retaliation' for sanctions Russia has issued a threat to seize the assets of British companies including BP and Shell as a retaliation against David Cameron’s demand for tough sanctions. In a mounting war of words, a senior diplomatic source claimed Moscow would “fight back” against any industry-wide EU sanctions by putting British companies working in Russian oil on the frontline. “We want friendly relations. We will go along as far as we can. Then we will retaliate,” the figure said. The official measures will include seizing the assets of British firms, adding: “BP and Shell have a lot of assets in Russia.” The two firms have major partnerships with Russia energy firms Gazprom and Rosneft. In March, senators loyal to Mr Putin proposed freezing the assets of European and American companies in Russia, in response to Western sanctions imposed on Kremlin figures responsible for the annexation of Crimea. Daily Telegraph, July 24, 2014 EVENT COMMENT Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the LORD: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say. This mighty nation was originally Babylon. In a latter day context its Russia. Alexander Yakovenko, the Russian ambassador, in a combative press conference, warned of a new economic collapse if Western sanctions went ahead, saying they “may well trigger the long-anticipated end-game of the present global crisis.” So what does he mean “the long-anticipated end-game”? He is implying that there will be a final showdown between Russia and the West. The two countries that are pushing hardest on Russia are Britain and America. The Russian ambassador (just quoted) said that “Britain is the most difficult and hostile country in the EU towards Moscow.” Many headlines are saying “Britain PUSHING for new sanctions on Russia.” We think of Daniel 11v40. The king of the south is pushing at the king of the north. Russia responds with invasion of the Middle East… BIBLE QUOTE (Jeremiah 5:15)
NATO must respond to Russia: Cameron NATO must rethink its long-term relationship with Russia and strengthen the alliance's ability to respond quickly to any threat, British Prime Minister David Cameron said Saturday. NATO needs to sustain a "robust" defensive presence in eastern Europe, Cameron wrote in a letter to the alliance's Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, and the 27 other NATO country leaders. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization also needs to beef up its response force of rapidly deployable land, sea, air and special operations troops, he said. With six weeks to go before Britain hosts the NATO summit in Newport, south Wales, Cameron said he wanted to use the meeting to agree a tougher policy towards Moscow, which would send a message that NATO member states would not be intimidated. ” In 2014, the world is more unpredictable than ever and we meet at another pivotal moment in the history of the alliance," Cameron wrote Associated Press, August 1, 2014 EVENT COMMENT Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.This stage 2 war is about SPOIL – see Ezekiel 38.12. Jerusalem is left a ruin in this war. In Zechariah 12:6 Jerusalem survives. We are seeing the preparations of the king of the north (Russia) to come down into the Middle East. We are also seeing the king of the south (US / UK) pushing at Russia over Ukraine. The UK prime minster this week warned of complacency in regards to Russia. He said we should be rearming and preparing for further conflicts with Russia. So what of the Russian conflict of Ezekiel 38? This is stage 2 and comes hot on the heels of the conclusion of stage 1. Stage 2 is detailed in Zechariah 14 and the nations are detailed in Ezekiel 38. Notice how in Zechariah 14 there is no mention of “nearby nations”. Notice in v2 they come to take a “spoil”. Notice (unlike Zechariah 12) that Jerusalem is captured and becomes a ruin. Zechariah 14 is the outer ring of nations that descend into vacuum left by the stage 1 conflict.

he Lights go out as UK remembers WWI Lights across Britain will be switched off for an hour on Monday in a tribute to the dead of World War One inspired by the prophetic observation of then-Foreign Minister Lord Grey on the eve of war 100 years ago. "The lamps are going out all over Europe," Lord Grey said in 1914. "We shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.” Landmarks like Trafalgar Square will go dark from 10pm as people across the country switched off all but a single light in their homes for an hour. The "war to end all wars" spread carnage across Europe, especially northern France and Belgium, killing 17 million soldiers and civilians in 1914-18. One million of the dead were soldiers from Britain and its then empire. Mr Cameron and Prince William, second-in-line to the throne, attended 100th anniversary ceremonies in Scotland and Belgium on Monday. Speaking at an event in Liege, William paid tribute to those who died as he noted that the current fighting in Ukraine showed instability continued to stalk Europe. Daily Telegraph, August 4, 2014 EVENT COMMENT Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, BIBLE QUOTE (Ephesians 1:9-10) Is not interesting that 100 years exactly have gone by since the start of the first world war – but here we are on the brink of the third? Is there significance to 100 years? Numbers are highly significant in the Bible. The number 10 and multiples of 10 eg 10 x 10 (100) or 10 x 10 x 10 (1000) are symbolic of fullness without it reaching its totality. The woman has 10 silver coins and searched until she found the lost coin. There were 100 sheep but one got lost and had to be found. The reign of Christ is 1000 years. All these numbers are to do with fullness or completeness of something. It is possible that the world is reaching its fullness. We know that man’s time is nearly up. We know that God will intervene by sending his Son. We also know that however awful the first world war was it is nothing compared to what is coming. The final judgement for everyone…
he UK: Islamic State is "threat to civilisation" Philip Hammond the UK Foreign Secretary described the Islamic State as a "threat to civilisation to the region and to us here in Europe" today as he confirmed that Britain was prepared to arm Kurdish fighters in Iraq. "The UK has said we will also consider favourably any requests for supplies of arms," the foreign secretary said. "We are already shipping ammunition and supplies from other East European countries into Erbil.” France, Britain, Germany and Italy today pledged to step up humanitarian aid to help refugees in Iraq, following an emergency meeting of European foreign ministers in Brussels. France, Britain, Italy and Germany also pledged to step up humanitarian aid to help the refugees in Iraq, following an emergency meeting of European foreign ministers in Brussels. Daily Telegraph, August 15, 2014 EVENT COMMENT The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand: That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. BIBLE QUOTE (Isaiah 14:24-25) The world is beginning to wake up to the terror of this new group that almost overnight have setup a so-called Islamic State. The horror and savagery of this people is beyond comprehension. They are beheading children, crucifying adults and appear to be fearless in their goals. We have mentioned that the territory they now control is almost identical to the territory of the ancient Assyrians – who themselves were as vicious and brutal as these people. Why have they suddenly appeared and to what purpose? And does the Bible speak about these events? Assyria of course was used by God originally to bring punishment on the wicked northern kingdom of Israel. We know that judgements are coming on Israel in two stages. Stage 1 involves the surrounding nations which we are told include Assyria. Stage 2 involves an outer ring of nations that come against Israel i.e. Russia, Iran etc. ISIS therefore is part of stage one…
he Britain facing 'greatest terrorist threat' in history Britain faces the “greatest and deepest” terror threat in the country’s history, David Cameron warned as he pledged emergency measures to tackle extremists. The UK threat level was raised to “severe” — its second highest — meaning that a terrorist attack is “highly likely” in light of the growing danger from British jihadists returning from Iraq and Syria. The Prime Minister said that the risk posed by Isil (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) will last for “decades” and raised the prospect of an expanding terrorist nation “on the shores of the Mediterranean”. He disclosed that Isil had made “specific” threats against the UK and did not rule out military action to tackle the growing problem. More than 500 Britons are believed to have gone to Iraq and Syria and at least half have returned, with some feared to be planning attacks here. One major plot has been foiled. Daily Telegraph, August 29, 2014 EVENT COMMENT Terror and traps and snares will be your lot, you people of the earth. Those who flee in terror will fall into a trap, and those who escape the trap will be caught in a snare. Destruction falls like rain from the heavens; the foundations of the earth shake. The earth has broken up. It has utterly collapsed; it is violently shaken. BIBLE QUOTE (Isaiah 25:17-19 NLT) The raised alert will lead to an increase in the number of armed police on the streets, especially around landmark sites and airports. The Prime Minister said: “It was clear evidence that this is not some foreign conflict thousands of miles from home that we can hope to ignore. The ambition to create an extremist caliphate in the heart of Iraq and Syria is a threat to our own security here in the UK.” The increase in alert status comes less than a week before a Nato summit in south Wales, which will be the biggest gathering of heads of state in the UK. Britain may well be facing the greatest terrorist threat in history – but the world is about to face is greatest time of tribulation EVER. We are told in Daniel 12:1 that there will be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation. Jesus quotes this in Matthew 24:21 when he says there will be trouble such as never was. The world is on the brink of trouble which is beyond imagination…
Deutsche Bank warns a vote for independence would be a historic mistake as the Chancellor and the Bank of England's Governor disclose they have pulled out of next weekend's G20 meeting to prepare for the aftermath. Britain faces a period of severe economic turbulence if Scotland votes for independence next week, economists warned, as the prospect of a Yes vote threatened a new financial crisis. A report from a respected financial advisory firm said that investors were already pulling money out of the UK at the fastest pace since the "credit crisis" of 2008. With the battle over independence reaching fever pitch on the final weekend of campaigning, George Osborne, the Chancellor, announced he was withdrawing from a crucial G20 summit next weekend because of the risk that a vote for independence in Thursday’s referendum could plunge the UK economy back into turmoil. Daily Telegraph, September 12, 2014 EVENT COMMENT Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all kind of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded in thy fairs. Her Majesty’s Stationery Office says “The principle economic minerals of south-west England are, of course, tin and copper ores, lead, zinc, silver, arsenic, antimony, sulphur and iron. Tin was being produced about 2500 years ago..” BIBLE QUOTE We will know the outcome of this referendum next Friday. But with Bible in hand is there any indication about what will happen? Britain is a significant nation in the Bible and has had a key role to play in God’s plan and purpose. Is it possible that Britain could break up at this stage? It has been a United Kingdom for over 300 years! So here is scriptural reasoning that Britain may possibly be about to break up… Britain is Tarshish in the Bible. Tarshish is mentioned over 20 times. A key chapter that identifies Britain as Tarshish is Ezekiel 27. In verse 12 we read that the Phoenicians traded with Tarshish for TIN. Britain was the only country at the time Ezekiel wrote trading in tin. CLICK HERE to read more about this evidence. So Tarshish is Britain. We read about the “ships of Tarshish” having their strength laid waste in Isaiah 23:14. This occurred in WW1. CLICK HERE to watch a presentation on this. Comment cont....CLICK HERE Scotland heading for a 'Great Depression' if a Yes vote (Ezekiel 27:12)
Daily Telegraph, September 12, 2014 COMMENT Cont… Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? Why does the Bible have to add the phrase “the merchants” It could have just said “Tarshish”. Is it because the merchants describe a group of people separated within the nation? BIBLE QUOTE We also read in Isaiah 23 that Tyre will “pass over” to Tarshish. Tyre was the capital city of the Phoenicians who traded with Tarshish for tin! Tyre was an incredible trading city, trading around the whole of the then known world. But Tyre was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar and later Alexander the Great as God foretold. Why did this happen? Because Tyre became proud and also turned against the Jews. So how does a capital city in Phoenicia move to Britain? It did so symbolically. Tyre was re-established in Britain. Britain became a great trading nation like the Phoenicians. They setup colonies around the world like they did. And London became the equivalent of Tyre. A capital city controlling an empire and trading with colonies around the world. But Britain, once supportive of the Jews has turned against them and also rejected the Bible. In fact latter day “Tyre has become like a harlot.” See Isaiah 23:15. Latter day Tyre (London) we are told in verse 18 will not keep her wealth – it will not be stored up. The riches therefore of Tyre will come to an end. So judgement is coming on Tyre (London). We are also told of this in Psalm 2:11-16. God will once more judge the ships of Tarshish for being proud when the day of the Lord comes. So could the possible break-up of the UK be the beginning of this judgement? Quite possibly. And there is more… We have long quoted from Ezekiel 38:13 about the “merchants of Tarshish” who oppose Gog (Russian leader). But WHY does it say uniquely in the Bible “the MERCHANTS of Tarshish”? Why not just say “Tarshish”? Is this a reference to a specific group of people WITHIN Tarshish? The word “merchant” means “trader”. The centre of trade is still in latter day Tyre – London. Are we being told that Tarshish is broken at this point? It is not Tarshish standing as a whole against Gog but only a group within Tarshish…. The group of merchants and traders based in London / England. Scotland heading for a 'Great Depression' if a Yes vote (Ezekiel 38:13)
This is the week when the enormity of a possible Yes victory started to come home. The past few days’ polls have made clear that Scottish independence is a real possibility. From currency to elections, counter-terrorism to the Queen, England would be transformed. We could see political apocalypse. Former prime minister John Major writes “The UK would be weaker in every international body and most damagingly within the EU. The risk of our exit from it enhanced. Britain’s place as a member of the permanent 5 of the UN would no longer be viable.” Also dividing up the military would be incredibly difficult. “It’s a mess,” says Evening Standard defence correspondent Robert Fox. “Think of the arguments between Ukraine and Russia over the Black Sea fleet: it would be worse than that.” The Queen is also known to be upset at the prospect of independence. She would however in theory still be Queen of Scotland. London Evening Standard, September 12, 2014 EVENT COMMENT Yes, after seventy years the Lord will revive Tyre. But she will be no different than she was before. She will again be a prostitute to all kingdoms around the world. But in the end her profits will be given to the Lord. Her wealth will not be hoarded … Something happens to stop her hoarding her wealth. God punishes Tyre for becoming like a harlot BIBLE QUOTE The aim of this WWW is not to categorically say that Scotland will leave the UK. But to show that it is possible to see this with Bible in hand. There has already been sarcastic reactions by Russia and the rebels in the Ukraine to the possible break-up of Britain. And this would only increase afterwards. The UK would lose much of it’s perceived power and authority. David Cameron the UK prime minister was tearful this week as he pleaded with Scotland to vote “no” to independence. This is the same man of course who just last year said “I want to export gay marriage around the world.” Not just civil partnerships but gay marriage. He spoke of his pride in doing this. Yes Britain truly has rejected God, the Bible and Israel. Britain now supports fully the division of God’s land. So whatever the vote on Thursday, judgement is coming on a nation that once believed in God, that once held the Bible in respect, that once supported Israel living in the land.. R.I.P. GB: what happens if Scotland votes Yes Isaiah 23:17-18 NLT)
London Evening Standard, September 12, 2014 – THE IMAGE IN THE NEWSPAPER THIS WEEK Human pride will be brought down, and human arrogance will be humbled. Only the Lord will be exalted on that day of judgment. For the Lord of Hosts has a day of reckoning. He will punish the proud and mighty and bring down everything that is exalted. He will destroy all the great trading ships of Tarshish and every magnificent vessel. Human pride will be humbled, BIBLE QUOTE R.I.P. GB: what happens if Scotland votes Yes (Isaiah 2:11-16 NLT)
After independence is rejected, the abiding emotion in large areas of Scotland, across the rest of Britain, and particularly the environs of Westminster is of relief, tempered with a deep uncertainty and foreboding about what the future now holds. After polls through the week had suggested the referendum was running neck and neck, Scotland elected to remain in the Union with a vote that was decisive, but not emphatic. 55.3 per cent (2,001,926) voted No, to 44.7 per cent (1,617,989) voting Yes. In Scotland the result will have left divisions that will not be easy to heal. More than 1.6 million Scots must now live in a political union they voted to leave. And what of the 41.4 million in the rest of Britain 91 per cent of the population who, denied a vote, could only look on as Scotland deliberated on the break-up of the United Kingdom. Many have found themselves hurt and bemused by the stridency of the Yes campaign, the atavistic tribalism, and in some cases, naked hatred directed towards the English. Daily Telegraph, September 19, 2014 EVENT COMMENT And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations. Tarshish was a great grandson of Noah. Notice he was one of those from whom the “isles” or “islands” of the Gentiles came. Britain is a gentile island divided into their families BIBLE QUOTE In a desperate attempt to stop a yes vote in the Scottish referendum the UK prime minister promised to give the Scots more devolved powers. The trouble is that the promises were made without parliament’s authority. And therein lies the problem. If Scotland gets more devolved powers so (argue the English politicians) should the English. So Britain has won the battle but still has another war to fight. We will see some bitter in-fighting over the coming months. The UK has survived but is divided. Britain is Tarshish in the Bible. The Bible records a key role that Britain (an isle afar off) played in hearing the word of the Lord and also helping the Jews return back to the land. (Jeremiah 31:10) But it also records a returning to harlot ways. (Isaiah 23:15) It also says Britain will be judged for becoming proud. (Isaiah 2:12-16). After Scotland votes No, the kingdom is still united - but uneasily so (Genesis 10:4-5)
he Britain joins fight against Islamic State Group Britain is poised to join the war against Isil after Parliament overwhelmingly backed air strikes targeting the terrorists in Iraq. David Cameron said there was a “strong case” for extending the air strikes into Syria. He warned that the war against the “psychopathic” Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) was likely to last for “years”. During an emergency session of Parliament on Friday, Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Labour MPs largely united as they voted 524 to 43 in favor of joining military action in Iraq. The air strikes were supported by the Archbishop of Canterbury, who said the West must offer a “vision of hope” to counter Isil’s “endless darkness”. Last night, six RAF Tornados based in Cyprus were poised to strike targets in Iraq within hours. The military intervention marks the third war in Iraq involving British personnel in the past 25 years. Daily Telegraph, September 26, 2014 EVENT COMMENT The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. BIBLE QUOTE (Isaiah 17:1-2) To complete the roll call here comes Britain. The “old lion” enters the fray with America (young lion) and the Arab nations based SOUTH of Israel. The emergency vote this week in the UK to go to war with ISIS was specifically to attack targets in Iraq only. But David Cameron made clear that Syria is next on the list. Many commentators expect another vote at some point which will bring Britain’s firepower against ISIS targets in Syria. Syria is extremely interesting from a Bible prophecy point of view. We know that Damascus must cease to be a city at some point. We know that Syria itself is the original king of the north. We know that Syria is not mentioned in Ezekiel 38. Therefore something happens to Syria BEFORE Russia invades. The events with ISIS could lead to a wider conflict with Syria in the future. We don’t know exactly how this will come about but there is no doubt what is happening now is highly significant…
Britain’s House of Commons voted in favour of recognizing a Palestinian state late Monday in a move that will not alter the government's stance on the issue, but that carries symbolic value for Palestinians in their pursuit of statehood. Lawmakers in Britain's lower house of parliament voted by 274 to 12 to pass a non- binding motion stating: "That this House believes that the Government should recognize the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel as a contribution to securing a negotiated two-state solution." Britain does not classify "Palestine" as a state, but says it could do so at any time if it believed it would help peace efforts between the Palestinians and Israel. Government ministers were told to abstain and the non-binding vote will not force Britain to recognise a Palestinian state. Jerusalem Post, October 25, 2014 EVENT COMMENT A prophecy against Tyre: Wail, you ships of Tarshish! For Tyre is destroyed…. Cross over to Tarshish; wail, you people of the island. Is this your city of revelry, the old, old city, whose feet have taken her to settle in far-off lands? Ancient Tyre came to an end BUT it passed over to Tarshish (Britain) BIBLE QUOTE Israel was very unimpressed by the vote this week in the UK. According to an Israeli cabinet minister parliament was guilty of “encouraging terrorist attacks” and “giving up” on peace when MPs cast a “miserable” vote in favour of Palestinian statehood. This vote comes just 2 months after Israel was attacked with over 4000 rockets. We edge ever closer to the division of Israel. Almost every nation on earth wants to divide God’s land and give half of it to the Palestinians. They think this will bring peace. Britain in the past was a supporter of Israel and actually encouraged the creation of a new nation for the Jews in Palestine. That was back in 1917 - the Balfour Declaration. Almost 100 years later Britain is taking a very different stance. It now sides with the Palestinians. Just as ancient Tyre was pro Israel but turned against the Jews so modern day Tyre (London) has done the same.

he Britain will not pay extra £1.7bn for EU budget David Cameron has said Britain will refuse to pay a “completely unacceptable” bill of £1.7billion to the European Union. The Prime Minister hit out at the bill and spoke of his anger at the “appalling” way Britain has been treated by the European Commission. He said that “it certainly doesn’t help” the chances of Britain remaining in the EU after an in-out referendum due to be held in 2017. A visibly furious Mr Cameron said: “I'm not paying that bill on December 1. It is not going to happen.” The UK was on Thursday ambushed with a demand from the European Commission for the extra money because Britain’s economy has performed better than other economies in Europe since 1995. Speaking in Brussels, Mr Cameron said: "This is completely unacceptable. It is an appalling way to behave. I am not paying that bill on December 1. If people think I am they have got another thing coming. Daily Telegraph, October 24, 2014 EVENT COMMENT At the end of seventy years, the Lord will deal with Tyre. She will return to her lucrative prostitution and will ply her trade with all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. Yet her profit and her earnings will be set apart for the Lord. BIBLE QUOTE (Isaiah 23:17-18) In January 2013, British Prime Minister David Cameron promised an "in/out" referendum on British membership of the European Union in 2017, after a period of renegotiation with the EU, if the Conservative Party wins an outright majority at the next General Election, expected in 2015. Events this week widen the gap even further between Britain and Europe. This surprise (and shock) demand for nearly £2bn has angered even those who are fairly pro Europe. If Britain doesn’t pay, Europe can fine Britain millions of pounds every day. Europe is not an ideological project for Britain- it is purely about the money. Isaiah 23 speaks of Tyre coming to an end and passing over to Tarshish (Britain). But it says in the last days it will become like a harlot and join herself with the kingdoms of the world. This is a reference to the UK joining Europe. We wait to see if the UK decides to leave.
Germany 'would accept UK exit from EU' Chancellor Angela Merkel has reportedly warned David Cameron she would rather see the UK leave the EU than compromise over the principle of free movement. Der Spiegel news magazine quotes German government sources as saying she feared the UK was near a "point of no return”. Chancellor George Osborne dismissed the story as speculation about how Germany may react to a future UK policy shift. But he insisted ministers would act in the national interest in addressing public concerns about immigration. He told BBC Breakfast that concerns about abuses of the benefit system were causing "great unhappiness" but the UK would approach future negotiations in a "calm and rational" way. Mr Cameron wants to renegotiate the terms of the UK's continued membership before holding an in-out referendum. BBC, November 3, 2014 EVENT COMMENT “I will tell you the mystery of the beast with seven heads and ten horns on which she sits. The beast you saw was once alive but isn’t now. And yet he will soon come up out of the bottomless pit and go to eternal destruction. And the people who belong to this world, whose names were not written in the Book of Life before the world was made, will be amazed at the reappearance of this beast who had died. BIBLE QUOTE (Revelation 17:7-8 NLT) The German chancellor's warning to Mr Cameron is reported to have come in a meeting on the fringes of the latest EU summit in Brussels last week. Der Spiegel, quoting sources within the German chancellor's office and German foreign ministry, said this was the first time Mrs Merkel had acknowledged that the UK's exit from the EU was possible. The big issue for the UK is immigration. Many people do not see how Britain can sustain the enormous of numbers of new people coming into the country. Apparently David Cameron wants to ban migrants who do not have a job, and to deport those who are unable to support themselves after three months. Europe will not allow this. Europe’s project is one about recreating Babel. Uniting people who would normally be divided by language. Creating one superstate under one religion. The Bible talks about this. It says Europe is a beast with 10 horns. The UK may leave it one day.
Cameron compares Russia to Nazi Germany David Cameron has compared Russia to Nazi Germany because of its actions in Ukraine on the eve of a tense meeting with Vladimir Putin. Mr Cameron will on Saturday night challenge Mr Putin about Russia’s continued acts of aggression in Ukraine as it supplies heavy weapons and tanks to the separatists. In a reference to World War II, Mr Cameron said that the world must “learn the lessons of history” and intervene to stop “a larger state bullying a smaller state”. He said: "Russian action in Ukraine is unacceptable. We have to be clear about what we are dealing with. It is a large state bullying a smaller state in Europe. "We have seen the consequences of that in the past and we should learn the lessons of history and make sure we don't let it happen again." Daily Telegraph, November 14, 2014 EVENT COMMENT Two-thirds of the people in the land will be cut off and die,” says the Lord. “But one-third will be left in the land. I will bring that group through the fire and make them pure. I will refine them like silver and purify them like gold. They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘These are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’” This is Holocaust II driven by Putin BIBLE QUOTE (Zechariah 13:8-9 NLT) It was only a few months ago that Prince Charles compared Putin to Adolph Hitler. Now we have the UK prime minister comparing Russia to Nazi Germany. Britain is currently remembering 100 years since the outbreak of world war 1 in 1914. And here we are on the brink of world war 3. Putin does have some things in common with Hitler. Not least a shadowy youth movement called Nashi (Russian for “ours”). Hitler had Hitler Youth a recruitment training ground to bring new young people into paramilitary wing of the Nazi party. Both Hitler and Putin led nations that were filled with bitterness over lost glory, both fostered intense hatred of outsiders, and both promised to restore their national honour through military conquest. Hitler killed 6 million Jews. We are told that two thirds of living in Israel will be killed when Russia invades. 4 million Jews will be killed…
he Britain to open new military base in Bahrain Britain will open a new military base in Bahrain in a deal to increase cooperation in tackling security threats in the region. Gulf states including Bahrain have found common ground with the United States and European powers in opposing Islamic State militants, and its crown prince on Friday urged war on "evil theocracy". The country is part of a US-led coalition carrying out airstrikes on the extremist group, which has carved out vast areas of control in Syria and Iraq. Bahrain's foreign minister Sheikh Khalid said the deal "reaffirms our joint determination to maintain regional security and stability in the face of challenging circumstances”. "Bahrain looks forward to the early implementation of today's arrangement, and to continuing to work with the UK and other partners to address threats to regional security," Khalid said. Daily Telegraph, December 6, 2014 EVENT COMMENT Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? BIBLE QUOTE (Ezekiel 38:13) More preparation here but this time it is not the king of the north getting ready but the king of the south. Britain pulled out of this area at the end of British Empire. But this week it announced a major strategic reversal of that decision. Britain’s Foreign Secretary said that Britain was intending to take up a greater security role in the Middle East as the United States pivoted towards Asia. The base will host the Royal Navy's Type 45 destroyers as well as the two new aircraft carriers it is building. David Cameron's new government four years ago made reviving Britain's old alliance with the Gulf states the key priority of its foreign policy. This is exactly what the Bible says would happen. Britain (Tarshish) would be working with Saudi Arabia and the gulf states (Sheba and Dedan). Bahrain is one of the states on the Arabian peninsula that is covered by ancient Sheba and Dedan. We know the day is coming when the king of the north will come against the king of the south…
