Tracking the Future of the Nations: Great Britain
To get a true sense of the spiritual state of Britain, the following note from the Amplified Bible, Page 318, Joseph Parker, quoted in Gray & Adams Commentary, condensed, may yet prove to be in the process of fulfilment and gives an accurate reflection of the present turmoil leading to the spiritual and financial demise of this once great nation.
“Where God is, the right Monarch is
In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes.
This statement is made three times in the latter chapters.
All was well while Joshua and those who assisted him lived, then gradually came disorder.
“What is the meaning of this? …… There was no king [or counsellor] in Israel because in Israel there was no God.
The Lord is King. You cannot have a [true] king if you have not a God.
There was no nominal renunciation of God, no public and blatant atheism, no boastful impiety; THERE WAS A DEADLIER HERESY – namely, keeping God as a sign, but paying no tribute to Him as a King, worshipping Him possibly in outward form, but knowing nothing of the SUBDUING AND DIRECTING POWER OF GODLINESS.
That is more to be dreaded than any intellectual difficulty of a theological kind…… Dead consciences, prayerless prayers, mechanical formalities – these are the impediments that overturn ….. the chariots of progress.
This was the case in Israel. Where God is, the king is not [merely] a man with a crown on, but a king in the sense of kingliness, sovereignty, authority, rule – the spirit of obligation and responsibility…. YOU FIND THE RIGHT MONARCH WHERE YOU FIND THE RIGHT GOD.” [Joseph Parker, quoted in Gray & Adams’ Commentary, condensed].
– Amplified Bible – Page 318”
Britain is on the verge of having her very foundations crumble, indeed, things will not remain the same as it is the intent and the purpose of God to overturn this nation and keep on overturning until this people submit in unconditional surrender and humbleness beneath the mighty hand of God.
This once well favoured super Nation has lost her true spiritual direction and flounders on the stage of the world and yet she continues to posture with the pretence that all is well and even though the economy is in the visible and invisible process of collapsing, she assumes she can rise up and rebuild successfully as in times past.
This is merely the beginning of the intolerable anguish which will grip this nation with a hand of iron from which she will be rendered powerless to escape. When God rises up to take judgment on a nation to single them out for destruction and hedges them in, who can oppose Him? There is no mortal man in this country that is capable of thwarting the design and intent of God, unless this people turn back to God with one accord, as aptly written by the prophet Isaiah in chapter 26:9 “My soul yearns for You [O Lord] in the night; yes, my spirit within me seeks You earnestly; for only when Your judgments are in the earth will the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness—uprightness and right standing with God.”
What then lies in store for this nation in the imminent future?
The floods of the past years will appear mild in comparison to those yet to come; earthquakes in diverse sectors will rock this nation; famine, drought, disease, new and mutated, will afflict their livestock; plagues, old and new will sweep across this nation; the canker worm, the palmer worm, and the locust will swarm to the utmost corners of this nation; civil unrest, riots, crime will flow over from the estates into the inner cities, random multiple murders, family murders and suicides, lawlessness and theft will increase more and more, acts of terrorism will increase and become prevalent. Doctors will despair of finding cures as the obvious eludes them, woe unto this people, to whom will they turn to for help?
The economy and financial markets will certainly crumble and B.P. is but the beginning of other great financial institutions failing, which by the way, are presently concealing their losses to avoid the inevitable as long as possible, as though, by some miracle, they may be able to avert the disaster which looms on the horizon. Suddenly, one after the other, the true state of affairs in the secretive financial markets will be brought to light, secret no more, but open to worldwide scrutiny.
Like a consuming fire, the commoners will rise up in resistance against the leadership of this nation, and indeed, the Monarchy itself will not come off unscathed.
The voice and rage of the people will be heard in actions with one accord, they will drive out the foreign nationals; indeed, these foreigners will attempt to flee in dread and fear from the persecution and cruelty which they will be subjected to without mercy.
However, all is not lost and from the seemingly hopeless situation stability will once again arise because of the remnant of true believers which God has reserved for Himself. When the wicked rule, the righteous hide themselves. The Amplified Bible aptly quotes from Proverbs 14:28, 34 “Uprightness and right standing with God [Moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation] these elevate a nation” and “In the multitude of people is the Kings glory, but in the lack of people is the princes ruin.”
During 2006 to 2008 I spent much time in intercessory prayer in Britain and my commission was to pray the last portion of Malachi for this nation which was so evidently obscured in darkness and loss of true spiritual direction, ‘turn the hearts of the unbelieving fathers to the children, and the heart of the rebellious children to the fathers’; furthermore, I was led by the Spirit to pray for the fulfilment of the promises and prayers of the greatest men which hereto the world has heard of, Spurgeon, Matthew Henry, Whitefield, George McDonald, Smith Wigglesworth etc… ‘And though they have died they are still speaking…..’ for there still remains the germ of their prayers echoing in heaven through the halls of time, and an unextinguished spark of the old fire remains in the people. From the ashes upon the altar the besieged Church will rise and this nation will once again build upon a foundation that will be unshakeable as they turn and keep on turning to God, until every hindrance is removed and the broken fellowship is restored. – Sylvia Harris-Compton – 27th July 2010
