With the Fourth of July soon to be upon us and American independence under assault by the globalist minions, the Brexit, as it is termed, interjects most spectacular prophetic prospects into the end times equation.
Satanic forces—the principalities and powers of Ephesians 6:12—have in recent days been moving the U.S. toward European style socialism and humanism at break-neck speed. It is amazing, really, to think of the duality of methodology employed by the Luciferic orchestration.
While America is pushed forcefully by the progressive political architects toward that European model, the European Union at the same time is in some ways being hammered into the shape of the U.S. federal prototype.
Now, the process is suddenly put on hold—a pause because of the gut-punch all those globalist gurus absorbed with the vote of the British people. —Saying “no” to staying in the EU by a vote margin of 52% to 48%.
The people have declared in this totally unexpected referendum result that they prefer British sovereignty over rule by a central, unelected European bureaucracy dictating from Brussels. The huffing and puffing from that punch has the new world order types bellowing in great pain and issuing threats of ramifications that will now befall the British people and the rest of the world.
Presidential candidate Donald Trump, who sort of predicted this would be the actions by the Brits, rather modestly, I thought, reacted in an un-Trump-like way to his seemingly prescient prediction coming to pass. “People are just fed up with politicians lording it over them,” was his tone in reacting to the results, by the way I viewed it. Nothing more complicated than that…
One thing sure, other politicians—Trump’s foes—as of this writing—are still getting up from their knees after the punch. Both Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton were soundly rejected in their, as usual, over-bearing warnings to the people of Great Britain if they chose the route they ultimately chose—to pull out of the European Union.
Pundits on the side of sovereignty, of secure borders to staunch the flow of unchecked immigration—of a sane policy in the matter of national autonomy—believe the EU to now be unraveling, coming apart at the seams. It is conjectured that the EU will now dissolve and become less of a threat to engender dangerous developments perpetrated by a central governing authority upon the entire western hemisphere.
On the Bible prophecy front, many are saying Brexit greatly sets back the development of the reviving Roman Empire, that geopolitical entity that must form before Christ’s return. Franklin Graham, Dr. Billy Graham’s son and head of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is one who has stated that the development of this prophecy seems to have been greatly hampered.
He said: “We don’t know what the EU Referendum vote means long-term, but I know that this is at least a temporary setback for the politicians in this country and around the world who want a one-world government and a one-world currency. The Bible speaks that one day this will take place…”
I’m of the opinion, however, that it is a mistake in perception to believe things taking place in the British exit from the EU spells a postponement, or even a slowdown in prophetic progression. On the contrary, the jolting rearrangements occurring at present, I believe, are likely putting Bible prophecy on the fast-track to fulfillment. The dynamics are not putting the Antichrist incubator in a comatose condition, rather are actually putting the smelling salt under the European nostrils—actually speeding up the reviving of the Roman Empire. My thinking in this regard is based upon the other Bible prophecy developments observable in every direction upon the end times landscape.
Economic problems are building on a world-wide basis. All monetary matters are intricately linked. One economic movement in any part of the world creates ripples that threaten to bring the whole system crashing down. Yet the bubble hasn’t burst. An unseen force is without question, to this observer, holding back the flood of fiscal destructiveness.
War is straining to breakout in so many places and at so many levels around the globe that the world could explode at any moment from the slightest miscalculation. Russia is on edge, agitating with military maneuverings that threatens Soviet-style aggression. China is seeking to shut down freedom of the seas with its island building and harassment of U.S. naval forces. North Korea sends missiles in test firings that obviously are meant to intimidate its neighbors, while selling its offensive military technology to Iran and other diabolist nations. Iran continues with its nuclear weapons program while shaking its angry Islamist fist in the face of America. Israel continues to be the target for destruction for all of its terrorist-spawning neighbors. Yet the unseen force holds back man’s final thrust into all-out warfare.
So, it is reasonable to consider that the Brexit is but one more example of the unseen force exerting influence over developments in prophetic progression. It all means, I think, that the progression is speeding up, not slowing down.
In thinking on America’s independence on this Fourth of July, and considering the British decision to take back its independence from the liberty-restricting European Union masters, it is good to realize one thing more.
The God of Heaven, in holding all of these planetary power players in check is declaring His own Independence as the Person who will have the last word on the final disposition of His creation.
It is He, alone, who will bring man’s foolish, rebellious plans for one world order crashing down.
I’m convinced that it is the Rapture of the Church that will begin that crash. It could happen today!
