Who Would Put Themselves in Gaol?

I hope like me you love this country, the United Kingdom. There are many forces at work that wish to break up the union. I feel a witness in my spirit that we are fighting the biggest spiritual battle this country has seen for centuries. If we end up a vassal state under the common rulebook, the customs union and the backstop, we shall have betrayed our brothers and sisters in Northern Ireland and we shall give away our freedom and democracy to unelected, undemocratic bureaucrats.

I have listened and prayed about both sides of the argument and I am now convinced that the UK will be better off under WTO rules for trading and leave means leave. I cannot understand why anybody like in the game of Monopoly would want to put themselves into gaol, give the key to the gaoler and hope one day the gaoler will set them free. I think even a six-year-old can understand this.

Mrs Theresa May, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, even though she spoke at Lancaster House and guaranteed the British public that she would work for a clean exit from the EU, has in effect betrayed this country. In times past when we were ruled by kings, she would probably have lost her head for this. I understand many feel that she has done her best, but quite frankly it is now appearing her best was not good enough, as sadly her heart was not in it and she had no intention of disengaging from the Europeans and winning back our sovereignty, our fisheries, our agriculture and our freedom to trade freely with the rest of the world.

It is your duty on Monday morning to email your MP if you feel and love this country as I do.

I have heard all the nonsense regarding we shall not be able to visit Europe on holiday, they will put tariffs on our cars and many other arguments, but you need to understand we import more from Europe than we export. That is a fact. In your garden shed, you probably have a Flymo, a Bosch drill, or even a Worcester combi-boiler. If you do not know, these are all German companies. If you look around your house you will see many products that are from the EU. So the fear tactics that the globalist elite are using are no more than fear.

It is time for this great country to stand shoulder-to-shoulder and not to be bullied by the spineless members at Westminster and show the Europeans that we do not want to see our streets such as France being set alight. There is an anger in the country which I have never experienced. It would appear that it will only take a spark and we can see the same as in France. Please pray that this would not be the case.

As we are Christians we must always obey the rule of law, but if the Mother of Parliaments is neutralised then we are closer to the Lord’s return than at any other time in our history. As many of you know, I have studied eschatology for many years, I have read many papers, I have listened to men such as Barry Smith from New Zealand, who is no longer with us. I watch with interest technology that countries such as China and now India are becoming cashless societies. They are now buying goods through their mobile phones using a QR code, which many of us now believe could be the start of the biochip. I am not saying this is the mark of the beast, but it would appear very close to a one-world trading system. Even now in the UK, as many of you do know, you can do your banking on your mobile phone, and even in Cambodia now you can pay for your bus fare by scanning a QR code. So the system is becoming more and more worldwide. We are moving to a cashless society and much of this stuff we know who is behind it. People such as Barry Smith, Charles Lawson and Leonard Ravenhill were laughed at years ago, but now we are seeing these things with our own eyes. Our situation on the 11th of this month will determine which way we go. If we end up as I have said above, I believe time is running out, as all the signs are pointing to a one-world government and a one-world church. My only prayer is that Jesus returns before these things fully take hold. You owe it to yourself to read the last book of the Bible, the Revelation of Jesus Christ, as a believer.

I am sorry to give such a stark warning, but as a watchman for our God and our Father in heaven, I must obey Him first.

As many of you know, on 11 December I shall be travelling to Cambodia. The good news is God has honoured me mightily. Much of my cost inside Cambodia has been covered. I still have a shortfall of about £700 which I have to pay back on my credit cards when I return, but my faith as you know is so great I trust the Lord, my God, as this trip to Cambodia is a miracle in itself. I give all the praise and all the honour and all the glory to God.

One Minute to Twelve

Clock at one minute to twelveDear Fellow-Ministers and Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ and to the True Church,

Many of us are witnessing in our spirits that the time of the return of the Lord Jesus Christ is very imminent. I am sure like me you are being challenged by the events around the world. The tsunami in Indonesia and it seems every day there is a new disaster around the corner. John the Baptist came with only one message and it was a message of repentance. I do not see much of this going on in our churches around the world today. I see as in the time of Amos:

The Prophet Amos – עָמוֹס- lived in the Eighth Century BC and was a common herdsman and keeper of sycamore fig trees (7:14) before he was called by God. He moved from Tekoa in Judah to the Northern Kingdom of Israel during the reign of Jeroboam II and prophesied the destruction of the Northern Kingdom. He is the first Prophet to have a Book of the Bible named after him. His book should be first if the listing was chronological, as he lived just prior to Hosea.

While Israel was prosperous at the time, it was also a time marked by social injustice – a time similar to our own! Amos castigated the extravagance of the Northern Kingdom, who “trampled the head of the poor into the dust of the earth” (2:7). Amos in 5:24 called for justice – מִשְׁפָּ֑ט – mishpat, and righteousness – צְדָקָה – tsedaqah, in one sentence. We live in a time of corporate greed and domination, a time of social inequality when 20% of the world consumes 80% of the world’s goods. The Book of Amos is relevant to this day!

[biblescripture.net]

So like me I would hope you would agree with the statement above. There are many in the kingdom of God who are living off the fat of the land as Amos warned the Northern Kingdom. I would say this is a parallel with the western church today. As many of you know, I have travelled to many countries and I have seen many injustices. I see pastors running around in the latest Mercedes and there are members of their congregations who cannot afford shoes. I see pastors and leaders living in mansions while their congregations are living on foodbanks. This cannot be right. I see people in the body of Christ giving to receive. Unfortunately, ladies and gentlemen, we as ministers are guilty of this, as we have allowed the world to enter into the church. It is time for the church of Jesus Christ, I believe, to come to repentance. We are crying out for revival and a change in our nations. But I believe, as the word of God says, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

I have just recently seen a YouTube clip of the late Billy Graham calling the nation of America to repentance in the 1970s. Many of you will not remember when the Shah of Iran was their leader and Iran was relatively free and had the freedom of religion. It was a different time. Now his son Franklin Graham is carrying on the message. Just recently, Franklin Graham was in Lancashire and many souls came to Christ. But I pray that the leaders of the major denominations will put away their petty differences and I for one pray will call the nations to prayer. I believe like many around the world that the Holy Spirit is calling the church to repentance. We are at one minute to twelve, and as it tells us in Matthew 24 we should be watching and praying as we do not know the time of our Lord’s return. It is time now, church, that we put aside our denominations, our affiliations, and came back to the word of God and interceded for our nations. This is not an opportunity for another worship service or people to puff themselves up or even sadly some ministers to make some extra money. This is a sincere cry from my heart for prayer. We in the west seem always to turn these into Christian concerts. This is not what the Lord is looking for.

Many of us remember the March for Jesus, which I believe was a move of God, and other events down through the years by people like Bob Dunnett and great prayer initiatives. But where has all this stuff gone? What a signal would be sent to the world if all the true believers around the world came together and prayed. This is not an opportunity for radio stations, TV stations or leaders in the body of Christ to make a few bob or even take up an offering, but to do as they say, seek God and pray. What a time this would be: no celebrities, no superstar Christians, but a true move of God. Who knows what God would do?

The Clock is Ticking

The clock is ticking, my brothers and sisters.

This morning I was reading Hebrews 11 with my colleague.

And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, who by faith conquered kingdoms, performed acts of righteousness, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. Women received back their dead by resurrection; and others were tortured, not accepting their release, so that they might obtain a better resurrection; and others experienced mockings and scourgings, yes, also chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were tempted, they were put to death with the sword; they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated (men of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes in the ground. And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised, because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect. (Hebrews 11: 32-40)

So if this happened to the apostles and the early church, why should we as believers be surprised at the curtailing of our freedoms? I always believed there was freedom of speech in the United Kingdom, but I am now getting to the the point where I believe we are now living in an Orwellian society. If you are a Christian or white Caucasian you have no rights. It is quite acceptable for other faith groups and non-Christians to profane the name of Jesus and the Holy Bible, but if you were to burn a Koran, as one lady did quite recently, you would be imprisoned. As street preachers we have to be very careful what we say otherwise we come face to face with the rule of law. We have seen the nonsense in Northern Ireland with Ashers Baking Company if we refuse to do things through conscience.

Jesus Himself said in Matthew 24: 12,

“Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.”

and in Matthew 24: 37-39,

“For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.”

For this reason we are seeing much of this today in our so-called civilised society: the push of the left wing for freedoms for feminists, LGBT and other groups has pushed the balance of our society away from truth. We now call evil good and good evil. We have a problem where if we speak out against certain groups we are called racist. Our nation is in chaos. Our politicians have lost the plot. We are overrun by illegal immigrants and economic migrants.

If you are a true believer in Jesus Christ I believe the time will come one day that they will even make it illegal for us to say that Jesus Christ is the only way to God. We see around the world the attacks on Israel and the Arab nations preparing for war. Many of the signs that have been prophesied have come to pass.

My brothers and sisters, we are running out of time. I believe it is the time for the British church to get down on its knees, do away with its church politics and get back to the Bible. I agree with Don Francisco’s song: I do not care how big your church’s steeple is if it’s sitting on a cemetery. I don’t care if your pastor’s super-powered and your programme’s always new.

Are there others out there that feel the way I do? I am not saying like Elijah that I am the only one, as I know in my heart there are many who sit in congregations every week who feel the same as I do. If you feel the same way and want to put out fires again, see souls saved and see a true restoration and revival in our nation I should love to hear from you. Please contact me as I believe we need another spiritual revolution as in John Wesley’s day and I should love to pray with you.

Why Has Our Nation Offended Mr Trump?

This week, we have seen something that I believe is another step closer to the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We have seen the forces of darkness come out on the streets of the capital of this nation, London, led by a man I believe to be totally anti-Christ, Sadiq Khan, Lord Mayor of London, who many across this nation believe is not fit for office.

If you do your own search, you will find out the organisation that led the protest against the most powerful leader in the western world is communist-backed. This was revealed on Piers Morgan’s programme Good Morning, Britain, as the leader of the protest was drawn out as Piers Morgan asked some fundamental questions, why were there not protests against the Chinese premier, the leader of Turkey and the Saudi king, and she could not answer. This just shows the pure hypocrisy of the communist left, whose aims are purely to put this country into chaos. If you looked at the TV coverage you will have seen that many of the people that marched were LGBT and those that are totally anti-Christ. As for the abomination that was flown over London the other day, the blimp of President Trump, our Prime Minister and those in Parliament should hold their heads in shame. This is much of what the Bible says: in the end times there will be eating, drinking and feasting and Jesus will come back like a thief in the night.

My brothers and sisters, I believe it is your duty to write to your MPs, also write to the BBC and the media channels and also to OFCOM, informing them of your total disgust at the coverage and also the biased nature of the media, as many organisations have tried to counter this garbage and it is clear who controls the media: the globalists. There is a counter-protest that will be taking place soon, which has raised over £50,000 to build a blimp of Sadiq Khan, which is at the moment applying for permission to fly over London. It will be interesting to see if Sadiq Khan authorises this, but I would not hold my breath, as many of the politicians of this nation have no moral fabric and no moral compass.

It is time we the body of Christ got on our knees and prayed for our nation. Since Brexit, this nation has been split. I personally believe that it is God’s will that we come out of Europe and that we stand alone and trust in God. For hundreds of years, God has never let down this nation. I believe it is the body of Christ’s responsibility to get on our knees and seek our God to bring this nation back to Him. I would that the leaders of the body of Christ would seek God again as they did in the past. It also tells us in the scriptures that in the end times people will be lovers of self and I see much of this in the modern church today. The only purpose I have ever seen for the church is Matthew 28: 19, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you.” This is the command of our Lord and the purpose of the church. I hope like me you are praying for this nation that we shall come back to God again.

If you have any views on this please do not hesitate to add your comments. It is time that the Christians of this nation started to debate the truth. There is no excuse for being silent, as Jesus told us that everyone who confesses Him before men, He will also confess him before His Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies Him before men, He will also deny him before His Father who is in heaven (Matthew 10: 32-33).

Final Warning to the Church

I greet you in the only name above heaven and earth, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Just recently, the Lord has directed me to Turning Point by Dr David Jeremiah. The month of May, he has being doing an amazing series which has blessed us mightily. We are seeing these amazing events around the world which Jesus spoke about: wars and rumours of wars, mighty fires in California, earthquakes, volcanoes, and the list goes on. The Bible says these are the birth-pangs before the end. I myself am spending a lot of time in Revelation, 1 Thessalonians 4: 15-18 and 1 Corinthians 15: 51-52.

Sadly much of the church is asleep. Pope Francis has just made a statement that Protestantism is dead and there is only one holy, catholic church. He is having major meetings with major pentecostal leaders from around the world, faith groups and the faith teachers such as Kenneth Copeland, Joyce Meyer and their entourage, which David Wilkerson spoke about, Charles Lawson is still speaking about. Many of these megachurch leaders such as Joel Osteen have kissed the ring of the Pope. Do they understand by kissing the ring they are bowing to his authority and denying the death of the martyrs from the reformation, many of which like Wycliffe and many that can be found in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs died in vain?

My brothers and sisters, we are entering into a time of major heresy when Joel Osteen can say all roads lead to God, Oprah Winfrey and Gloria Copeland state clearly that Jesus was just a man that was touched by the Holy Spirit in the Jordan. It is time that the big pentecostal movements such as the Assemblies of God and Elim, the Bible colleges of this nation and America and the TV channels such as the God Channel, Revelation TV and United Christian Broadcasters came out against these people. Where are the men of God that once told the truth? Why are they not speaking out? People like Donald Gee, Eddie Durham, George Jeffreys, Stephen Jeffreys and the founders of the Assemblies of God must be looking down from heaven and wondering what on earth is going on. The Bible says, wake up you sleepers. Sadly most of the church in the United Kingdom, the United States and the West are fast asleep and leading their congregations down a broad road. The Bible says,

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you who practise lawlessness.’”

Matthew 7: 23-33

So if you support these ministries you are enabling them to lead many astray and there could be a judgment for you too. We all know that at the end times there will be two judgments: one for believers, and whatever your theological stance is you can work that our for yourself, and the great white throne for those who reject God’s offer of full salvation and God’s gift of grace.

So, my brothers and sisters, it is time to speak up, warn our brothers and sisters of the heresy that is in the church, even though you will not be popular, but my understanding of the gospel is that the apostles were not popular. Whenever the church advances it is never popular. When it gets comfortable and sups with the devil, Lucifer leaves it alone. When you speak out for Christ you will be attacked, but as Paul said, great is your reward in heaven.

If you agree with my statements please add your comments. If you do not agree, still add your comments. But I suggest you go before the Lord, get your house in order, as the Lord is coming soon and it will be too late for those that you know and your loved ones. It is our duty to witness to them whoever they are or wherever they are. I for one will be a watchman looking for the master’s return.

God bless you.

Rev Ross Rennie
