God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20


From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.


Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.


This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.


It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.


Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.


"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4


Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.


Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…


But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

The Dinosaur Problem

T Rex Tissue Stumps Evolutionists

T-Rex Soft Tissue Disproves Evolution

Clip from “T.R.U.T.H. About the Dinosaurs” DVD

Is there something wrong when a supposedly 70 million-year-old tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur is found with soft tissue—including blood vessels and even whole cells? This is what a U.S. researcher reported in late March.  Biologist Mary Schweitzer discovered this soft tissue when it was necessary to break a T. rex’s huge thigh bone.

Schweitzer said that the vessels were flexible and some could even be squeezed. After extensive testing, there was confirmation that this T. rex bone even had hemoglobin (red blood cells).

This discovery is unexplained by evolutionary thinking, which suggests that millions and millions of years have passed since this “King of Dinos” met its demise. Schweitzer is puzzled and cannot understand why this bone was not mineralized. “It’s very amazing. It’s utterly shocking, actually, because it flies in the face of everything we understand about how tissues and cells degrade,” she said on MSNBC.

“It’s very amazing. It’s utterly shocking, actually….”

—Dr. Mary Schweitzer

In 1995, Joe Taylor, a professional dinosaur excavator and a biblical creationist, was curious about the hip girdle of another T. rex that was found in 1916. It was found in the same Hell Creek Formation where Schweitzer’s T. rex bone was found. Taylor was amazed that this 65 million-year-old specimen still had the appearance of skin on the sacral vertebrae. He sent a sample to Azusa Pacific College in California and had it scanned with an electron microscope by Professor Mark Armitage, who found that the bone had collagen filaments intact inside the bone. The presence of collagen suggests that this supposedly 65 million year old fossil was not completely fossilized. Armitage states, “It can’t be but a few thousand years old.”

So the Theory of Evolution is just that ‘A Theory’ that has never been proved and evidence like this says it can’t be and isn’t true.

GOD'S KINGDOM ON EARTH...What will it be like?

Bible Prophecy Provides Evidence That God Exists For All To SEE


The Ayes Finally Have it in Britain: Brexit set for January 31st

Following Britain's landslide general election, all is now set for a January 31st departure

Ayes have it and Britain will now leave the EUThe ayes finally have it in the British Parliament following last weeks landslide election, giving the go ahead for Brexit on January 31st next year.

Meanwhile, after Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar made comments suggesting EU circles were hoping Boris would use his new large majority to push through a soft, Brexit in name only, future relationship agreement, and also extend negotiations into 2021, text was added to the Brexit Bill to legally rule out extending this period. Boris Johnson also reaffirmed his commitment that there would be “no alignment” between UK and EU standards and regulations, something the EU has insisted is “a must” for any type of future relationship. With a deadline of July next year for the UK to request an extension to the transition period, something that is now not legally possible without a change in law, and only until December 31st next year till the currently unagreed future relationship is to be enacted, a new ‘cliff edge’, WTO semi-no deal exit is again possible. The greater the divergence from Europe the more the UK will need to trade with its “young lion” commonwealth.

And the importance of these things in relation to Bible prophecy has been considered numerous times here on Bible in the News including last week. Eze 38 shows that Britain/Tarshish is to stand aside when many counties in the world, including the EU invade Israel. The direction of the EU, especially its desire to form an EU army, will soon make it impossible for a EU member to have a policy so different from all the other members.

But not only must the UK have the ability to have a different policy, being able to stand aside from those nations that invade Israel, they must also have the will to do so. It could otherwise not be possible for Britain to leave the EU and then support the action that they take, but we know that this will not be the case.  This is what Ezekiel 38 says regarding Britain...

"13 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?"

Britains Exit from Catholic Europe and Russias Entrance!

Amazing Events as the Nations Move Toward their Prophetically Stated Positions

The newsrooms around the world have not been quiet over the last few weeks.  This week the plot thickened in the United Kingdom with three ministers flying to meet the Queen to request a suspension of parliament, which was granted causing outrage and protests.  The impression however coming out of No.10 Downing Street is that they are serious about leaving on October 31st, with or without a deal.  The fight in the country is certainly far from over, but we do know from Bible Prophecy that Britain does not belong in Europe.  Whether it happens on October the 31st or not, Britain will leave Europe, even if she has to fight to get out.  That excitement is this week.  Last week however was also worth watching.

Last week another meeting took place, French President Emanuel Macron sat down for a chat with Russian President Vladimir Putin.  When these meetings happen there is always interest from a Bible Prophecy perspective as Bible students have long waited for an empire develop that would include Europe and Russia.  What came out of that meeting certainly shows that those in power in Europe are moving events directly in line with where the scriptures have indicated millennia ago they would.  And with Britain showing every sign that she really may Brexit, Europe will be left to finally pursue her ambitions unimpeded.

Wake up the Mighty Men of War

Russia, Turkey, Iran, America, Britain and Germany are being positioned into the roles predicted by the prophets for them to assume in the time of the end.

The USA withdraws from 1987 nuclear missile treaty with Russia. Turkey moves away from NATO and closer to Russia. The UK sends warships to protect shipping in the Strait of Hormuz. Europe at odds with USA and UK over Iran. The nations are being moved into position for the Great Day of God Almighty.

Men of War1British Warships accompany commercial shipping near Iran

This week has seen international tensions rise on multiple levels. The scriptures speak of the latter days in terms of remilitarization. Ezekiel speaks of the re-arming of the Northern Confederacy:

“Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.” (Ezekiel 38:7)

This preparation involves a militarization of the host:

“And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:” (Ezekiel 38:4)

The prophet Daniel describes a similar militarized host:

“…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.” (Daniel 11:40)

The prophet Joel speaks of the time of the end as a time of remilitarization:

“Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, And your pruninghooks into spears: Let the weak say, I am strong.” (Joel 3:9–10)

USA withdraws from Nuclear Treaty

Men of War2USSR leader Gorbechev and US President Regan sign the Nuclear Arms Treaty in 1987

It wasn’t surprising to see a reversal of US policy, withdrawing from the 1987 nuclear arms treaty struck between US President Regan and Soviet Leader Gorbechev. CBC news reported the following today:

The U.S. formally withdrew from a landmark nuclear missile pact with Russia on Friday after determining that Moscow was in violation of the treaty, something the Kremlin has repeatedly denied.

U.S. President Donald Trump made the determination that the U.S. would terminate adherence to the 1987 arms control accord, known as the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), senior administration officials told reporters.

The treaty bans either side from stationing short- and intermediate-range, land-based missiles in Europe.

The article stated the reasons that have been given:

"Russia's noncompliance under the treaty jeopardizes U.S. supreme interests as Russia's development and fielding of a treaty-violating missile system represents a direct threat to the United States and our allies and partners," Pompeo said.

The senior administration officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Russia had deployed "multiple battalions" of a Russian cruise missile throughout Russia in violation of the pact, including in western Russia, "with the ability to strike critical European targets."

Is Britain's Future Relationship with the EU to be Friend or Foe?

Britain vs EU Friend or FoeWhen Britain leaves the EU, will it remain a close friend or develop into an opponent?

As Prime Minister Theresa May prepares to leave office, we examine how her vision for the future relationship between the UK and EU compares with Britain's future role, and the relationship that will exist between the UK and EU at the time of the end.

As has been explained previously (Why Britain Must Leave The EU), we expect that, at the time of Christ’s return, Britain will be not only separate from the EU, but also diplomatically opposing its actions, accusing it of invading the land of Israel with the motive of monetary gain. In Ezekiel 38:13 we read that Tarshish (Britain) asks the invading nations (which includes the EU) “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?”.

So, we can see that Britain is diplomatically opposing what is being done by these nations, and making accusations that only an opponent might make, that those nations were starting a world war purely for money.

The Middle East On the Brink of War

Just as the Hebrew Prophets Foretold.

Tensions build in the Middle East between Iran and the Gulf States and the United States. The left wing Israeli Ha’aretz news site says, "Trump Cites Iran to Bypass Congress on Saudi Arms Sales”, "'An emergency requires the immediate sale' of weapons 'in order to deter further the malign influence of Iran,' Pompeo argues, invoking rarely used provision”. The news article says,

ME war 2019

Economist: Collision course. America, Iran and the threat of war.


"The Trump administration on Friday invoked a rarely used provision in federal law to bypass congressional review of arms sales to Saudi Arabia, citing threats the kingdom faces from Iran.

"Secretary of State Mike Pompeo notified Congress of the decision to use an emergency loophole in the Arms Export Control Act to move ahead with sales of $7 billion in precision guided munitions, other bombs and ammunition and aircraft maintenance support to Saudi Arabia, along with the United Arab Emirates and Jordan, without lawmakers' approval.”

Other headlines read

"Amid Iran tensions, Trump announces deployment of 1,500 troops to Middle East”

"Trump administration plans to bypass Congress in arms sale to Gulf nations”

"Iran's deadly reach in the Middle East puts U.S. forces and Israel in striking range”

The British left wing Guardian, says: "Iran tensions: 1,500 US troops head to Middle East as Trump seals $7bn Saudi arms sale”

The news article says,

"The US will send hundreds of additional troops and a dozen fighter jets to the Middle East in the coming weeks to counter what the Pentagon has said is an escalating campaign by Iran to plan attacks against the US and its interests in the region.

"And for the first time, Pentagon officials on Friday publicly blamed Iran and its proxies for recent tanker bombings near United Arab Emirates and a rocket attack in Iraq.

"Donald Trump told reporters Friday that the 1,500 troops would have a “mostly protective” role as part of a build-up that began this month in response to what the US said was a threat from Iran.

"The announcement caps three weeks of elevated tensions with Iran, as the administration hurled accusations of an imminent attack and abruptly deployed navy warships to the region. The moves alarmed members of Congress, who demanded proof and details, amid fears the US was lurching toward open conflict.”

The May 11, Economist Cover read, “Collision course”, "America, Iran and the threat of war”.

Brexit, America and Israel

The Fight for the West & Israel

At the end of March 2019 the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland should be free from the European Union.  Except it isn’t, as you probably know.

If you have been watching the British News you know the great count down was to March 29th.  The people of the United Kingdom were told, that with, or without a deal they would be leaving the European Union on this day.  Only this week the government voted to go against what it had promised.

Nigel Farage, a member of the European Parliament, the previous leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party and the de facto leader of Brexit attended a rally in London claiming he is ready to continue the fight.

And please make no mistake, Brexit will happen.  Britain will leave Europe.

As confident as Mr. Farage sounds the reason that we can be so sure that Britain will, in fact, come out of Europe is that the Almighty God of Israel has a different purpose and destiny for those British Isles.  And although this message is not as loud it is was certainly at the rally today.  Fabulous banners were seen on Global News and on Time’s video of the event as seen in the below picture!

Brexit America and Israel1

"Europe... as a united dominion... Britain cannot be included among them" - John Thomas, 1848

"Britain's Exit From Europe is Inevitable!" - Paul Billington, 1990

And although it is not on the minds of most of those involved in the Brexit debate it is the historical heart of the conflict.  Britain is historically a Protestant nation, the Protestant nation.  Protestantism was almost eradicated from much of Europe through the horrific events of the 16th and 17th centuries.  But in Britain, a protesting spirit developed and was never conquered.

Brexit and the Moment of Decision

Brexit extension looking likely as EU agree delay

For those of us that believe that Tarshish is the ancient Biblical name for the islands of Great Britain and that it has to be separate from the powers of Europe in order for the scene in Ezekiel 38 to play out, Brexit is an exciting thing to watch.

God’s plan as revealed in the scriptures

The British influence is a restrictive force in the idea of the ‘United States of Europe’ which will surely continue to form into the united territories of the metallic image of Nebuchadnezzar of Daniel 2. 

As one French expert was reported as saying by the Express on March 1st: “The European Union should "rejoice" over Brexit as the UK will no longer be a "killjoy" with their opposition to plans for further integration among member states” - French political commentator Éric Zemmour.

It is in Daniel 2 that the stone power of Christ comes to destroy the united kingdom of men and establish the Kingdom of God. The prophecy depicts an image representing a continues historic timeline of empires. It starts with the Babylonian empire represented by a head of gold. This gives way to a chest and arms of silver representing the Medo Persian empire. Next comes the belly and thighs of brass - the Greek empire. Then the Roman Empire is depicted as legs of iron. The last phase, the feet, describes the disintegrated territories of the Roman Empire.

French political commentator Éric ZemmourThe stone comes in the feet phase but we are told all of the metals are broken in pieces together which indicate the image somehow exists in the latter days and that all the territories that it represents from the Bablyonian, Medo-Persian, Greek and Roman, will be united together in opposition to Christ. In Daniels visions of the beasts in chapter 7 again this fourth phase of the Kingdom of Men is shown to us as being antagonistic to Christ. The European side of this territory, depicted in Ezekiel 38 as Gomer and Magog will continue to pool its power to this concept of the ‘beast empire’ as we read of in Rev 17:13 which describes the final details of the beast system. We read there that ten kings “give their power and strength unto the beast” - this is very much the sentiment of the EU project. God has mapped out another destiny for Tarshish who are busy trading in the Gulf with their independent ‘young lion’ political offspring on the latter days. This is clearly described for us in Ezekiel 38. This prophecy is a snapshot of the alliances of the nations just before Christ returns. It describes the same picture as the prophecies of Daniel. A uniting of the peoples of the Kingdom of men - all in opposition to God and His people Israel.  The Tarshish power, Britain, is separate from this antagonistic force.

Brexit means Brexit

This week Brexit has dominated the headlines. British Priminister Teresa May has been speaking to EU leaders attempting to get an extension of time on Brexit.

Brexit Hell

Have the EU overplayed their hand?

Brexit is still very much dominating the headlines and this week we consider some comments by Donald Tusk about the idea of hell and a place being reserved in it for Brexiteers. This is Matt Davis joining you.

Brexit and Bible prophecy

As students of Bible prophecy we believe that the Tarshish power mentioned in the Bible correlates to the power of Britain. In latter day Bible prophecy this Tarshish power is listed as being separate from the powers of Russia, North Africa, Iran, The Turkic nations and Europe. These powers are prophesied to unite into one super power confederacy whilst Tarshish remains separate, trading in the area of the Gulf and being allied with her independent political offspring. The super power invades Israel and this event sees the return of Jesus Christ to the earth, who will defeat the invaders, save the Jews and establish his Kingdom on the earth. The dawn of a new age of peace and righteousness will then be ushered into being and God’s glory will “fill the earth as the waters cover the sea”.

For us then Brexit is very much in keeping with the events we expect to unfold before Christ returns. Britain’s destiny lies outside of the EU and in the direction of the Gulf.

Current state of play

The current situation is fascinating. The UK government cannot get any agreement from Parliament on a negotiated leaving deal with the EU. The EU does not want to negotiate. It seems it is gridlocked and the default position will happen which is that the UK leaves with no deal. The only reason this has even happened is because leave MPs insisted that parliament has a vote on any negotiated deal, probably because they thought they could derail Brexit completely - however this in itself is making a no-deal Brexit more likely.

The comments about hell

Donald Tusk comment on Hell

The Brexit negotiations have recently become quite heated. This is what Donald Tusk, The President of the European Council stated in a recording published on YouTube by the Daily Mail on 6th Feb 2019:

“I've been wondering what that special place in hell looks like, for those who promoted #Brexit, without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely."

Later, Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament's chief Brexit negotiator, referencing Mr Tusk's comments, later tweeted: "Well, I doubt Lucifer would welcome them, as after what they did to Britain, they would even manage to divide hell.”

 Teresa May’s response

Teresa  May, the British Prime Minister responded on the 7th of Feb in an interview recorded by the Guardian. She stated:

“First of all I have raised with President Tusk the language which he used yesterday , which was not helpful and caused widespread dismay in the United Kingdom. The point I made to him is that we should both be working to ensure that we can deliver a close relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union in the future and that’s what he should be focusing on… Crucially Jean-Claude Juncker and I have agreed talks will now start to find a way through this, to find a way to get this over the line and to deliver on the concerns that Parliament has to get a majority in palimony and I’ clear that I am going to deliver Brexit. I am going to deliver it on time. That’s what I’m going to do for the British public. I’ll be negotiating hard in the coming weeks to do just that”

Therefore it seems Brexit is not going to be derailed. Even if negotiations fail it seems Britain will be leaving the EU on a no deal basis. This of course would increase the probability of other global trade deals coming into play exactly as we might expect from  our understanding of Bible prophecy.

Russia's recovery from the Cold War and the collapse of the USSR

Russia's remarkable recovery from the collapse of the USSRUSSR Callapse

After the fall of communism in Russia, nearly 30 years ago, Russia was left economically, politically and militarily weak. This week we review how things have changed since this time and how Russia is again a dominant power in the world as required by Bible Prophecy.

This is Paul Barnes writing from Moscow which was the capital of the Soviet Union until in December 1991 when the red flag with the hammer and sickle was lowed for the last time from above the Kremlin, signalling the final collapse of the USSR, just a short distance from where I am now.

Back in the early 1990s Russia was on its knees. It had just assumed responsibility for the US$70 Billion US owed by the Soviet Union, and moved from economic crisis after economic crisis throughout the 1990s. Due to these crises its military spending plummeted from today’s equivalent (allowing for inflation) of around US$250 billion in the late 1980s down to less than a fifth of that after the collapse of the USSR, and over the next few years, due to the economic situation here in Russia, it dropped by a further two thirds to just a fraction of what it had been just 10 years before.

Bible prophecy requires a strong Russia, with a strong and active military. In chapter 38 of the prophecy of Ezekiel, Gog – who, in verse 1, we are told is the prince of Rosh or Russ (the ancient name for the people of Russia) – would be a ‘guard’ to a large group of nations listed in the chapter. The list includes Gomer, which is a large part of modern Europe as well as other nations from the Middle East as well as Africa.

Even at this time when the Russian Empire was in complete collapse, this was a view held firmly by many Bible students. At this time an article in the Bible Magazine said that “many mistakes have been made in the past by those who have sought to understand Bible prophecy in the light of current events” and that our understanding of Bible prophecy must be led “by taking heed “unto the light that shineth in a dark place” (1 Peter 1:19)”. The article reminded the readers of the events of 1917 when “some were ready to scoff at the idea of a Russian Superpower gaining control of Europe and the Middle East… Today, when the Communist Empire (as we have known if for over 30 years) is apparently being dismantled, we need to exercise caution”.  The writer states that “there can be no mistake that this great confederacy, or alliance of nations [that invade Israel] is to be presided over by “Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal”, (R.V)” and goes onto say that “[the evidence] leaves us in no doubt that Rosh is the ancient name for Russia”.

2019 Crisis Britain?

"A Fire from the midst of thee"

As the world celebrates the beginning of a New Year with the usual revelry during party season, many will be wondering about the coming year — What does 2019 hold in store for the world? No doubt many will be optimistic and reflect the spirit of Isaiah 56:12,

"Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and tomorrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant."

UK in turmoil1But is that the Truth? Who knows what a day may bring forth? Even more - what a year may bring forth! As we read in James 4:13-15, "Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

The Truth is sober and it is realistic. When we look at the world today we must seek to look at it as God will see it - we need His viewpoint. That viewpoint is given to us in the Bible. Our article is focussed upon Britain, but the principles are applicable to many countries, especially those that have known the Bible.

The message of the Bible is clear: Psalm 9:17.

"The wicked shall be turned into hell (Heb. sheol = grave), and all the nations that forget God."

We have quoted this before, and it stands before us with a very clear warning. The passage may be applied to many nations, but there can be no doubt that it is very relevant to the people of Britain. 

It was the influence of the Bible that moved British statesmen to issue the Balfour Declaration and to "view with favour the establishment of a national home" for the Jewish people in what was then Palestine. But a counter influence opposed it and withheld recognition for as long as possible. It was that same power that opposed and burnt the Bible (as well as its translator).

Britain should repent of its unbelief today. Instead of keeping its promise made through Balfour and the Government of that time, Britain courted the Arabs and their leader the Mufti. The consequences have been terrible ever since with the slaughter of multitudes of Jewish people (carrying on Hitler's holocaust).

The words of William Tyndale who translated the Scriptures into English some 500 years ago should remind us of a very basic principle. He wrote:

"Of all the subjects of England this I crave - that they repent; for the cause of evil rulers is the sin of the subjects, as testifieth the Scripture. And the cause of false preachers is, that the people have no love unto the truth, saith Paul, in 1 Thess. 2."

Is it any wonder then that Britain's political leaders are trying to take the country into a European trap, from which it would be difficult to escape. British leaders ought to know their history, and they should know that the Bible has forewarned them against forming a cosy relationship with European Babylon. How blind they must be!

UK in turmoil2But it may be that Britain will have to "crash out" of Europe! That is the suggestion being made in some of the media at the present time. This, of course, would bring its own trials - and probably hardship. One way or another judgment is to be expected.

Some commentators are saying that a "NO DEAL" Brexit would spark violence, and it is reported that large numbers of extra police are being prepared for this, especially in Northern Ireland. This is what some  are expecting in 2019 - and time  will tell is if this is to be the case.

There is a prophecy in Ezekiel chapter 28 concerning Tyre, and many have seen parallels between this prophecy and modern Britain. The prophecy is described as a "lamentation" and we read:

"By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more" (Verses 16-19).

Another prophecy, Amos 1:9-10, is also applicable. These are Scriptures worth thinking about as we consider Britain's position today. Britain must be humbled as also indicated in Isaiah 2:12-17. As we have said on previous occasions, Britain's exit from Europe (which is certain) is likely to be a very painful process. She must be brought to a repentant state. 2019 could witness the beginning of this.
