A Dark Force Active?

Why is it that on so many of the important news items I get the feeling that there is something lemming-like about the public response, according to what we see in the media?

Is it because our media slant those responses according to their left -wing views or is there really some powerful dark force projecting its views into the public arena? Or, Is it both?

Let’s face it, for example, the current gender issues have not until recently been a hot topic, common sense still prevailed. Are sea levels really rising? Take a look in your area, and remember the earth’s crust is not stationary.  Sydney harbour tidal records reveal no rise in the last 100 years, and from what I saw in Britain, it is the same there.  Don’t the Brits want to leave the EU, despite their unwilling Parliament?  An increasing majority say yes. Is abortion morally acceptable?  Yes, say the woke women, but the quiet majority are much more doubtful.  Is Israel really the Pariah State the media make it out to be, or is it really the only civilised, democratic State in the Middle East?

Do we see the world spiralling down  into more chaos, violence and depravity?  Are the leading Western nations in deep trouble? Are their rivals peaceful, human rights respecting democracies, or ambitious,  expansionist autocracies, which repress their own people?

So are we really being brainwashed by a subtle dark power?

Are we all heading towards strife and war?  Oh yes, and in spades! ‘That Dark Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.’  2 Corinthians 4:4, New Living Translation.         ‘….in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—’ Ephesians 2:2, ESV. 

That Dark Power is the temporary god of this world, the Prince of the power of the air, over which he broadcasts his spiritual mis-education to deceive humanity.

In fact there are only two sexes. The world will continue to exist despite man’s mistreatment. Britain will escape from the EU, because it is corrupt and anti- democratic. Abortion remains murder and there is always a penalty for sin. Israel will survive the Tribulation to come and will be instrumental in the rebuilding the nations after the greatest war the earth has ever seen.

How do I know?  It’s all in the Book, and thankfully its main message is the gospel (the good news) of the coming Kingdom of God, but only after we have learned the hard way, by following that Dark Power.

Fighting for Freedom

I came across an article by Greg Sheridan in the ‘Australian’ newspaper which is so important  because of the British Supreme Court decision expected in the next few days, that I will summarise it here.

“Brexit represents the clash of forces playing out in the main Western democracies.  It may be about national sovereignty, but it is also about how societies should run, and what is the source of democratic legitimacy.

The clash is between a  postmodern, undemocratic, technocrat state, with its purpose the eradication of national identity and the transformation of human nature………. and a vision of  the universal quality of humanity with the nation state at the heart of democratic and civic loyalty, honouring traditional wisdom  and authority, and traditional forms of democracy…..

Remainers  faithfully represent the modern European constitutional tradition… that empowers a technocratic elite…. Give great legislative power to judges….. restrict the space for normal democratic decision making….

These,  shift power from electorates and parliaments to managers of information….. from thousand year old constitutional ideas to five year old ones, from habeas  corpus to gender identity.  Because it was Britain that did most to construct the ideal of liberty which is now being challenged, Brexit clarifies the constitutional stakes for the world as nothing else.

In the old British constitutional system, which Brexiteers want to uphold and restore, courts had very little role in reviewing British legislation. In the EU system everything  is ultimately decided by the courts. All  EU member nations must submit to European law and the European Human Rights Court.  Once politics is “judicialised” all politicians become mere talkers…….it represents an enormous transfer of power from the poor to the rich….The judiciary is drawn from an extrembly narrow band of society, typically from successful lawyers, by birth and education… among the tiniest sliver of the wealthiest people in the society.  Parliaments, on the other hand, represent all kinds of people— rich and poor, smart and dumb traditional and iconoclastic, conservative and radical…. 

Remain is essentially synonymous  with ruling class and that Brexit represents  an assault on the prerogatives of this ruling class…. Brexit has been an “all out”  administrative judicial, economic, media, political and parliamentary war. The battle against Brexit is being fought Europe-wide, with all the weaponry a cornered  elite has at its disposal.

 EU insider elites are extremely good at augmenting their own power…..impos[ing] this on the nations of Europe….. this hasn’t been very good for  those who live in Europe……. blamed for stagnating economies, dizzying inequality and out-of -control immigration….

Boris Johnson , like Donald  Trump wants an Australian- style immigration system.  

But the EU being blamed for rising inequality….. The fact that so many working-class and poorer areas voted for Brexit is used by Remainers, with fabulous class condescension, to show what an ill-judged, foolish decision it was, for the great unwashed could not possibly know what is actually in their best interests.

 …..the model of governance the EU  promotes pervasively diminishes   all the traditional and real measures of democratic input and accountability. It privileges the affluent technocratic elite with all its neurotic virtue signalling and tells the common man his life embodies no wisdom and not much value. This Brexit  revolution is a liberty- seeking missile.  Will it find its target?”

It will, eventually, but only with a lot of luck if those elite judges find it in themselves to respect the original democratic referendum of the British voters. This article suggests they may not, but if they don’t, well, it doesn’t bear thinking about!

Isaiah 29:14, “Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work Among this people, A marvelous work and a wonder; For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.”

Coming Rulers

The Conservative manifesto at the last British election declared, ”No deal is better than a bad deal.”  What the EU wants, is to extend its power  over Britain, and their offer is plainly a bad deal, said Parliament, so the Conservative rebels who refuse to back Boris are simply continuing their refusal to represent the peoples’ democratic vote to be rid of the EU and even their own party’s manifesto.

Their betrayal of the one man who is doing exactly what he promised to do when he ran for election as leader of his party, is heinous!

Finally, Britain will end up out of the EU. We have known this would happen and have been saying so on this site and others for over four decades, but what this fiasco actually reveals  is the growing threat  of a European Super State and the unreliability of our politicians to represent the views of the people who have elected them.

Their desire to be part of a corrupt despotic empire which has weakened Britains borders, overruled its laws and demanded taxes for its corrupt bureaucracies, welfarism, political correctness and social engineering, is the real reason they rebel , rather than their claim that they just want to avoid a no deal Brexit.  Their treachery will go down in history as evidence that democracy is just not good enough!

What this world needs  is rulers who have proved that they understand their role is to truly serve the people they govern. Such rulers as those Jesus Christ mentioned in Luke 19 :17, ‘And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant! Because you have been faithful in a very little, you shall have authority over ten cities.’

Who are these people? They are the ones who will stand up for true Christianity at the cost of their lives in the face of that coming, world conquering EU Super State.  Revelation 20:4, ‘Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.’
