Brexit and the BBC
There have a been a few occasions in history when this nation has had to stand alone, going back to the time of Sir Francis Drake with the Spanish Armada. If you read in your history books, you will find the forces of darkness nearly overwhelmed this country. In the First World War, millions of men and women gave their lives for truth and liberty. In the Second World War, our nation was almost bombed out of existence by the Germans.
Whatever your political persuasion is, I thank God we live in a democracy. Many non-believers would say the election was a disaster, but there are some good things that came out of this last election. One was that God dealt with the pride of Mrs May and also Nicola Sturgeon, who was bent on destruction of the Scottish people, also the onslaught of Sinn Fein to take over Northern Ireland and turn the country into something none of us would like to see. But as a believer and a minister of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ I believe in the sovereignty of God and these things happen as they are part of God’s larger plan.
On the eve of the vote to leave the European Union after the total bias of the BBC and the talking heads, none of us believed we would wake up the next morning and find that we would be coming out of the European Union. Yes, it was only by two percent, but we do live in a democracy and the people have spoken. I do believe in time we shall see the many benefits of coming out of the European Union, but there are many forces in the European Union that would like to punish us because we want our freedom. In 1974 we voted for the Common Market, a trading bloc. We were never asked about federal Europe.
But there are two things as believers I think we should do: one, we should get down on our knees and pray for these people that are negotiating for the exit, and two, we should take out paper and a pen and write to our MPs and also the BBC Trust about the behaviour of the BBC and its total bias against those who voted to come out of the European Union. They have branded us as racists and bigots. There is a saying, evil increases because good men and women do nothing. So if you are reading this and you live in Great Britain, please write to your MP and the BBC Trust and show your disgust at the constant bashing that the BBC seems to be intent on. I myself have written to my local MP, the Prime Minister and also the BBC Trust. Sadly they have become antichrist, but we should not be surprised, as the apostle Paul said, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6: 12)
So, my brothers and sisters, this is not a time to be passive; this is a time to be active. Every letter I believe will be effective.
God bless you all until He comes.
