Covid-19

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

When this Covid-19 was first mentioned I like many others believed it was just another flu virus such as avian flu and the other ones we have seen come out of China, but I have sought the Lord God with all my heart and I believe the Lord God Almighty has allowed this devastating disease to grow and flourish as a warning to the people of this earth. I remind you if you have not read it for a long time to take a look at this scripture:

Psalm 2 King James Version

1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

So, my brothers and sisters and fellow ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I believe this is the time when many of us will be able to reflect. I hope it is a time when many will spend time in prayer and study of the holy scriptures as it is not a time to be busy, it is a time to be still. On this day, 19 March 2020, all the churches across the land are closed. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Mr Welby, and the Catholic Cardinals have closed down all their buildings. I believe the Baptists, the Methodists, the Assemblies of God and the Elim Pentecostal and the independent pentecostal churches will all follow suit. I believe this is also a judgment on the body of Christ as it is time to put away our banjos, our clever music, our programmes and seek God as we have never done before. We still have the access to the Internet. Many of us can contact each other through Duo, WhatsApp, Skype. We can also pick up our telephones and do something we have not done for a long time: talk to each other.

As for the prosperity gospel, this cannot function in this environment. I am not saying this is how things will end up, but I believe the Lord God Almighty is showing us what would happen if something worse came down the line. This is not a time to see how much money you have in the bank or how much you gain through ill-gotten gains. If you are mega-rich, it is time to sow. Remember the parable that Jesus spoke about of the man who built bigger barns and the Lord God Almighty said, “Thou fool, this night your soul will be required of you.” What will your money do if, God forbid, the Lord calls you tonight? What good would it have been? I am talking as a man who once had money who now has nothing but in my spirit I am very rich as I have learned what the apostle Paul learned, to be content in all situations, whether I have plenty or whether I have nothing at all. Jesus also said, “What would it profit a man if he gained the whole world yet lose his soul?”

My brothers and sisters, fellow ministers, we are going to experience for the next few months times that we never experienced. I believe this is the greatest opportunity that the Lord God has given us to reach the lost and the lonely. If you are able-bodied this is your opportunity to help those less fortunate than yourself. If you are rich, it is an opportunity to help the poor, as in the next three months the body of Christ is going to need each other more than we ever have in all the days of my life.

So I hope this message challenges you to not sit on your bottom but to see there are those in your community that you can give practical help to. Ask the Holy Spirit, “What should I do?” Even if it just means picking up a telephone or knocking on the door to help someone. I do believe that the blood of Jesus Christ is more powerful than Covid-19 and this could be a time when the church of Jesus Christ can really shine. We have sung it enough – Shine Jesus Shine – and Jesus can only shine through those He loves. I suggest you spend time and look at John 15 and make sure you are connected to the real vine and not just a sub-branch. As God is the gardener, he will cut off every branch that is not bearing fruit.

God bless you and keep you all and your families safe.

A Seasonal Message from Rev Ross Rennie

I would like you to lift our brother in the Lord Dr Mackereth. This man has stood for the fundamental right of every Christian in this nation. If you believe like us then I would ask you to sign a petition, write to your MP about this injustice. You yourselves may find yourselves in a similar situation if you stand for the truth of the word of God. We as Christians can never compromise our faith. Jesus Himself said these words:

“Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 10: 32-33)

He also said our yes should be yes and our no should be no.

We as Christians are now living in an Orwellian society. Doctors and those in the NHS are losing their jobs because they will not accept the LGBTQ agenda. If you read previous articles you will see the position of this ministry. Myers and I were discussing the other day there may come a day when the authorities will come for us because of our uncompromising stance on the word of God and we too could find ourselves in a courtroom or even in a prison cell. This is a price we would gladly pay for the honour of the Name which is above every name, the Name of Jesus Christ. You yourselves may find yourselves in a similar position. So we are going to stand full square behind the doctor and any others who through no fault of their own find themselves in a similar position. I believe a time is now coming when we as Christians have to nail our colours to the mast, this is not a time for compromise but for standing firm on the word of God, as when this life is over and we leave our mortal bodies we shall give an account for how we have conducted ourselves since we have been born again,

I also believe this is the time that we reassess what we believe, we kick out the garbage and we get back to the truth of the gospel. Many of you are getting ready to celebrate a pagan festival. If you check the history of this particular festival you will find it was first instituted by Saint Augustine, who took pagan festivals and assimilated them as Christian holidays. Christmas, Santa Claus, green trees, tinsel and sadly even the nativity have no basis in reality, as firstly Jesus Christ was not born on 25 December. He was born approximately September to October. There was no snow or the things that we have accepted, the lies we have told our children, which I myself have been guilty of and have just recently come to a place where I have repented. Unfortunately, a lie is a lie, no matter how we cover it up, and I like many parents lied to my children, but this is a matter for your own conscience.

I believe God the eternal, mighty Spirit is now challenging the body of Christ to realign itself with the truth and clean up our houses, and as somebody once said long ago, George Jeffreys the founder of the Elim Pentecostal movement, put our houses in order, as if the Master came today would he be welcome in your house? Would He find things in your house that you are ashamed of or could you welcome the King? As we move into this holiday season, we need to seek the Lord while He may be found, ask the Holy Spirit to challenge us and search our hearts for any wickedness. I myself have been doing this for a considerable amount of time now as I want to be found by my Lord and my Saviour a good and faithful servant. What about you?

Battle for Britain: Brexit or Not?

Oliver Cromwell

400 years ago, this country faced a civil war. If you know your history, you will see the major person in this event of history is Oliver Cromwell. Much of the values and the things we all enjoy today were won by this man and the parliamentarians: the right to education and many of the good things we have experienced in this land. In his day, the conflict was between Charles I and Parliament. There was a statement that he made that stated clearly Parliament was sovereign by the will of the people and it was the people who decided the direction of the nation. We now have a situation where the Speaker, Mr John Bercow, has turned this on its head. We have a surrender bill which even Tony Benn, the father of Hilary Benn, would be appalled at.

On 31 October, if our Prime Minister is true to his word, this nation should be free. If you have read my previous articles you will see we have two choices as a Christian nation. If we end up back in the EU I believe prophetically many of our Christian values, which have been squandered away over many years, will be taken away for good. Our freedom of speech, our right to assembly and our right to preach the true gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ in our towns and cities. Many of us have seen over the past few years many street preachers arrested under Article 35, which was a law that was brought in to do with football hooligans, but the police and the judiciary have manipulated this law to trap those who wish to put their faith on the line and preach in our towns and cities across England.

So whenever the general election takes place, if you are a remainer, then I would ask you to consider as a Christian if this is a position you could align with Scripture and feel comfortable with, as if you vote to stay in the EU I will be bold enough to say you are fighting not against man but God Himself.

When I and many of my generation voted in 1975, we voted for the Common Market. The House, prime ministers such as John Major and Tony Blair, have manipulated the will of the British people to draw us into a federal Europe. We are now seeing the gloves coming off. There is talk about a European army, which if these people get their way many of your children will be conscripted to, a European defence force and many other institutions which I believe are antichrist. So this is the world you will live in if we stay part of the EU. If we come out of the EU, there will be bumps along the way but we shall have the right to elect our MPs to represent us, the people, in our nation. We shall have the right to trade on WTO rules around the world. So I for one will not listen to Project Fear, which is orchestrated by the globalists who wish to dumb us down like zombies.

So if you have not already done so, make your view known to your MP by writing, or when we do come to a general election if your MP is a remainer vote against him or her.

My only concern about all this is where are the Christian leaders? Are they, like the redefining of marriage, hiding behind their positions, their pay packets or their pulpits? I know that I am the last in this nation when it comes to ministers, but I for one am prepared to give my life for the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I will never give my life to the fake entertainment, backslapping, weak gospel that I see today. I long to see leaders stand up and be counted that I can be proud to follow. I see on the major Christian media that there is not even a debate on these subjects. Why? Are they running scared or just men-pleasers and not pleasing God? Please, ladies and gentlemen, get some backbone. Let us have a debate, as we are not just citizens of the United Kingdom but we are ultimately citizens of Christ’s kingdom.

If this offends you, then it is not me you are angry with but the Holy Spirit, as all through this Brexit debate I have waited upon the Lord and I have been led by the Holy Spirit to write these things, so if you disagree with me then comment below, as it is time the Christian church got more engaged as this affects you, your children, your church and your civil rights. I am a supporter of the Brexit Party and so are many of my colleagues as we believe ultimately in democracy and freedom. What do you believe in?

Trick or Treaty: 31 October

On 31 October, we shall know which way this spiritual battle is going to turn. We shall either be a sovereign nation again, free to determine our destiny and trade with the rest of the world, or we shall be, as in the days of the Israelites, bound to the EU, as Pharaoh bound the children of Israel to build the pyramids. In those days, God sent a man called Moses with his brother Aaron and said, “Let My people go.” I believe now, if you are a true follower of Jesus Christ, we all have a decision that must be made soon. We have seen the evil nature of our politicians and our only recourse is when a general election is called as it must. If our Prime Minister gets a clean-break Brexit, then the forces of light have won. We shall be free. But if he rehashes the treaty and we are not out of the back-stop, customs union and the legal frameworks of the EU, the pure facts are we shall be run by a dictatorship, the EU. We shall have no freedom and I believe eventually our freedom to express our faith will be taken away from us. Our children will be indoctrinated by the LGBT communities. The political correct brigade and the thought police will determine everything we do.

If you are a liberal, wishy-washy, lapsed Christian then you will accept these things. I dare say when they introduce the mark of the beast, you could even take the mark. Now is the time, as the Apostle Paul said in Ephesians, to put away foolish things, to get back to the word of God, to watch and pray and look up and wait for the returning of our Lord Jesus Christ and work while there is still day. My prayer for our nation and the world is that the church of Jesus Christ would get back to the real mission of Matthew 28:

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

As our Lord said, the only purpose for us believers to still be on this earth is not to build bigger houses or bigger barns; it is to reach the lost. There are billions of souls that will be swept into the eternal abyss of hell if we the church do not put away our petty differences, our denominational squabbles, and get on with the real work. If we accept the LBGTQ agenda and the globalist mantra which comes from the heart of Satan then we might as well sit down, make a cup of tea and invite Satan into our houses, our homes and our churches. God forbid that we would. My prayer is that the senior leaders of this nation and around the world would get back on their knees, put away their stupid programmes and seek the Lord God Almighty. We see all the signs around the world and in our day-to-day living that the devil is bringing together his final attack on the saints of God here in the UK, in the US and around the world. The word of God says Satan comes in like an angel of light. Be careful, my brothers and sisters, what light you are under as that will determine where you will spend your eternal life. The words of our Lord are clear in Matthew 7:

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

I hope this message challenges you, shakes you out of any complacency you may be in or apathy and puts fire back in your bones. As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord, even unto the shedding of blood if need be.

Wake Up to the Danger of Gender Reassignment

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

There is a shift going on in our nation. There is an evil which is starting to grow like a cancer: the LGBT community and the transgender activists. In America there are those now speaking out for gender equality and it will not be long as you are seeing on your television screens a transgender model activist called Morgan ridiculing eminent psychiatrists and doctors. You may or may not know of a doctor who has been sacked from the NHS for stating clearly there is no such thing as transgender. Biologically we are born male and female and we have one or two of the genes, an X-chromosome and a Y-chromosome, which scientifically has been proved. As the word of God says, I knew you in your mother’s womb. We are born male or female; everything else is a perversion of God’s creation and we all know where that comes from.

It is time we as the body of Christ rose up, as Christian Concern is doing, and stood for our nation. We have lost the adults but now these perversions are trying to get your children and your grandchildren. If you allow this to happen, as the word of God says clearly, you are accountable for their sin and it will be as if you are doing it yourselves. I am not here to judge you, I am here to inform you what the word of God says. My children are grown up, so it is of no consequence to me. but Jesus Christ Himself said, “Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not.” When the disciples rebuked the children for coming to Jesus, Jesus rebuked the disciples. No matter what translation of the Bible you read, you find this scripture in three gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke. When you see something which is in all three gospels and was omitted in John. you know there is something very important about this statement. It is clear when you read these scriptures, if you take time, you see how much Jesus loved the children. It is time, church, that children were given the right to have a childhood. If Mermaids, Stonewall and the transgender activists get their way, they will be testing children as young as seven. I know what I felt like when I was a little boy, that I was impressionable, and it is very easy as paedophiles know to influence children. Now we have the state mandating for schools this abomination.

It is your responsibility as grandparents and parents to write to your MPs, make your views known. The Islamic community is rising against this abomination as they see the danger, and it is time the body of Christ spoke out. It amazes me how many ministers who profess to love the Lord Jesus Christ are silent on these subjects. Are they frightened to lose their position, their pay-cheque? Was it not Jesus who said, if you give up anything for Me, great will be your reward, or am I reading a different Bible to them? Where are our leaders? Are they asleep like Baal on Mount Carmel? I myself am very insignificant in the scheme of the body of Christ in the United Kingdom, but as a man of the gospel of Jesus Christ I will make my views known.

What will you do with this information? Up until today, you might have been ignorant of it, but I suggest you take a look at YouTube and see where this battle is going. We do not battle with flesh and blood, but as Ephesians 6: 12 says clearly, ‘against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.’ Well, we have just seen in America the former President Barack Obama and the Democrats, which I believe are the high places that the Bible speaks of, open the floodgates of evil upon the world. We have pop stars such as Elton John parading their filth. We have gay ‘pride’ marches in our cities. And now, if you are conservative, moral, decent, you are considered a freak if you do not want to deliver up to Baal your children and your grandchildren, in the United Kingdom you are considered strange. Sadly those in our churches and our Christian media are all turning a blind eye when condoning sin. If we are to be the people of God that God intended it is time to rise. Seek the Lord while you may. We need to get on our knees and ask God for ourselves, what part shall we play in this?

We as Grace Missions UK have made our stand. We will not stand by and allow the devil to take the children. Parents and grandparents, how many of you allow your children to watch CBBC, CBeebies, Nickelodeon? Did you also know that the Teletubbies, SpongeBob SquarePants and many other of these programmes are indoctrinating your children? God help this nation and may Jesus return soon, or as many are praying we have a major revival and much of this filth will be swept away as God did with the flood in the days of Noah.

So, my brothers and sisters, please search your conscience, seek the Holy Spirit and do not be passive.

If you have any views on this subject I will be pleased to listen, as God has been challenging me for months now on Genesis 19 and Romans 1.

God bless you all and let us do the right thing.
