In the last days perilous times shall come – 2 Timothy 3:1

Friend of Hamas

Jeremy Corbyn described the terror group Hamas as being among his friends, and continues with his dangerous, inflammatory rhetoric after the Manchester murders.  He has been a supporter of Hezbollah, and Marxist guerrillas in Latin America; and he was a vociferous IRA cheerleader in Westminster.  He regularly shared platforms with activists thought to have killed police officers, soldiers and civilians.  The list could go on, and on, and on!  Obviously good qualities for a prospective Prime Minister of Britain!  Two years ago, he warned against treating Britons who travel to join ISIS in Syria as terrorists, claiming that this was a ‘value judgement’.  His condemnation of the Manchester murders rings hollow in the light of those he has supported and called his friends.  He doesn’t learn.  Jesus is called ‘friend of sinners’, but Jesus came to redeem sinners.  He did not condemn sinners, but neither did He condone their sin.  Jesus did not enter into negotiations, or seek for a peace deal with the Roman rulers.  He taught people the way to life and peace with God.  He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life; and no man comes to the Father but by Him (John 14:6).  He also said, “I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture” (John 10:9).

Islam is not attacking Britain because of foreign policy, as Corbyn has suggested, but for territorial gains for the Islamic caliphate; and for Islamic rule of law; sharia law.  There are Muslim’s that decry the terrorist attacks, and I am sure some of them are genuine.  However, what happens following on from attacks is that the whole mind is concentrated upon the destruction and death caused.  Overlooked is that the background work continues quietly on, as Muslims take over the structures of the nation; and there appears to be no stopping this.  This is the soft side of Jihad.  Islam is not only on the attack with nail bombs and knives.  The authority’s suggestion of doing more for Muslims is music to their ears.  The genuine people in the Muslim community are caught in the middle.  Not that surveys are terribly reliable; you rely on the answers supplied, as well as the analysis made by the experts, but a survey taken in 2016 suggests four percent of British Muslims expressed sympathy for terrorists.  According to The Daily Telegraph, police believe that the Manchester suicide bomber used taxpayer-funded student loans and benefits to bankroll the terror plot.  Salman Abedi is understood to have received thousands of pounds in state funding in the run up to Monday’s atrocity even while he was overseas receiving bomb-making training.[i]

Britain in denial

The mass misdirection of the masses by the authorities continues in its denial of the truth.  The claim is that a Muslim terrorist carried out a mass murder in Manchester, but it has nothing to do with Islam, and nothing to do with Muslims.  Corbyn isn’t the only one issuing forth stupid and dangerous comments.  MP and Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, said: “In my view, the man who committed this atrocity no more represents the Muslim community than the individual who murdered my friend Jo Cox represents the white, Christian community.”  That is the wisdom of Britain’s wise.  “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit?” (Luke 6:39).  Our leaders have chosen to turn a blind eye to the facts of terrorism and its root cause.  Matthew answers this dilemma – “They are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit” (Matthew 15:14).  As a result of our blindness and unwillingness to face the facts, we are allowing Saudi Arabia to fund our universities and use them to propagate their propaganda, and to fund mosques with the intention of radicalising them.  The Britain we have known is in freefall; and that is the result of our Godlessness, and spineless political leadership.  Leadership in all the major political parties has, over the years, closed down debate on immigration by using charges of racism, and homophobia, against those that are not PC, but are concerned for our nation.  The British public are lied to on every front concerning immigration, and the effects of immigration – on the economy, the culture, the NHS, Education, Housing; every sphere of British life is adversely affected.  Wake up Britain!  As I write, I am reminded of the word of Jesus to Jerusalem and sense it echoing over this nation of Britain, “…I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.  Look, your house is left to you desolate” (Luke 13:34-35).

The Fall

Results of the last census published in 2012 revealed that practically every belief in Britain was on the rise, while Britain’s historic national religion, Christianity was in free fall.  The numbers identifying themselves as Christians had dropped from seventy-two percent to fifty-nine percent from the previous census.  The collapse in numbers in England and Wales was more than four million.  The number of Christians overall fell from thirty-seven million to thirteen million.  At the same time, as a direct result of mass immigration, the Muslim population doubled; with at least one million illegal immigrants in the nation, the number was much higher than the official figure.  There was a large non-response to the census in certain areas of the country which probably means the numbers are vastly higher than we know.  Mass immigration has changed the face of Britain from what it had been for centuries.  In twenty-three of London’s thirty-three boroughs ‘white Briton’s were now in the minority.

The cause behind Britain’s woes is that we have turned our backs on the Lord God.  We have mocked Him as Creator, and have turned to Secular Humanism, and to evolution for the explanation of our existence.  “For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen” (Romans 1:25).  I pray for Britain to turn to God, but I see no evidence of this happening, in fact, quite the opposite.  A male police officer has become the first in Britain to identify as ‘gender-fluid’.  Callum, who has been with the Metropolitan police for thirteen years, has now decided to ‘present’ as a male at work on some days, and a ‘female’ on others. On these days, he calls himself ‘Abi’.   [ii]The Daily Telegraph report states, that Gender fluid is a gender identity which refers to a gender which varies over time. A gender fluid person may at any time identify as male, female, neutral, or any other non-binary identity, or some combination of identities.  This confusion will lead to the further deterioration of society.  God is not a God of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33), and this is an act of defiance against God as Creator.

Their gender can also vary at random or vary in response to different circumstances. It comes as part of the Met Police's diversity initiative encouraging officers to “be themselves” at work.

The officer's gender-fluid status was announced in an internal message to the Met’s 43,607 police and civilian staff last week, titled “Bring Your Whole Self to Work”.

Then we have the Church of Scotland backing homosexual unions.[iii]   The General Assembly report, put forward by the influential Theological Forum, acknowledged that the Bible condemns same-sex acts, but claimed Scripture was framed by cultural context.  That is an excuse to make of Scripture what you will, and is an open door to Hell on earth!

Alternative parenting

A new app enables people who want to have a baby to meet. ‘Just A Baby’ works similarly to dating apps and allows people to find a surrogate, partner, co-parent, sperm or egg donor, as well as conventional fertility services.[iv]

Grooming and raping – at will

Ten years ago, fifty under-age white girls were groomed and raped by a Pakistani gang, and an investigation reveals that abuse is still rife – and police are still hidebound by political correctness.  A harrowing BBC drama, “Three Girls” relived the scandal and what happened to those young girls.[v]

A first for Ireland

Thirty-eight-year-old Leo Varadkar, is running to become leader of Fine Gael who are currently leading a minority government in Ireland.  If chosen, he would become Ireland's first openly gay leader and its first of Asian immigrant descent; and he could be on course to become Ireland’s prime minister shortly afterwards.[vi]

The wanton destruction of God’s image on earth

“Based on Department of Health (DH) statistics for 2015, 185,824 abortions (over 550 each day) were carried out in England and Wales.  The highest number in 5 years…”  “On 27th October 1967, in a half-empty House of Commons, Parliament voted to decriminalise abortion.  Since 1967 more than 8.4 million unborn babies have been ‘legally’ killed in the UK, equivalent to the combined population of Scotland and Wales.”  “In 2016 Lord Shinkwin, who is himself disabled, tabled the Abortion (Disability Equality) Bill seeking to have abortions banned after 24 weeks.  It reached the report stage in the House of Lords but will not progress any further.  During the debate he asked, ‘What message does it send if, after birth, I’m good enough for the House of Lords but, before birth, I’m only good enough for the incinerator’”.  In the article, “Costly Consequences”, that I am quoting from, the writer states: “From the moment of conception the fertilized egg has full personhood and genetic makeup necessary for life outside the womb.  Whilst most groups agree that life begins at conception, personhood continues to be much debated and has restricted the rights of the unborn baby compared to the pregnant woman.”  The writer quotes Jeremiah 1:5; and Psalm 139:16.[vii]

If I may put it this way, it appears we have our own terrorists; ones that sit comfortably in Parliament, and others in medical centres – we just legitimize their activities by using medical sounding terminology to sanitize killing.

God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:9), and the earth is going to learn that God will not be mocked (Galatians 6:7).  Those that play with fire will get burned (2 Peter 3:10, and, “The sea gave up its dead, and Death and Hades gave up their dead, and each one was judged according to his deeds.  Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death — the lake of fire.  And if anyone was found whose name was not written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.…” Revelation 20:13-15).  We are forewarned of the consequences of living Godless lives.

Apart from the religion of Secular Humanism we have many gods, all equal in our eyes…well with the exception of the God of the Bible.  His role in British life is being erased, bit by bit.  You can still have a form of the Bible God if you become a participant in religious syncretism, and if your god is no bigger or better than the others; the belief is that they all lead to the same place.  That’s good in a multicultural society, it can aid in keeping the peace…or so it is thought.  The answer is to repent and turn to the Lord; not turn against Christians.  Turning against Christianity and Christians will please certain sections of society, but it will not save the nation, and it will not lead to the salvation of the environment or the world.

Muslims in denial

A Muslim woman being interviewed on Sky News said that what happened in Manchester, the murdering, is not in the Koran.  It prompted me to email a friend in the Middle East suggesting he write a book, “It Is in the Koran”.  I haven’t had a reply yet, but such a book would be useful to point to the truth; and it could be a life-saver.  No-one ever asks the question of Muslims, “If you could be shown that there are verses in the Koran that teach violence, murder, and terrorism, would it make any difference to you?  Would you leave the Muslim faith?”  Not every Muslim is a terrorist, but there is a large element of radical Muslims that are, and they are fed on the Koran.  The challenge must be brought down to the personal level, and with the right tools to challenge Muslim doctrine and the verses in the Koran, this could be done effectively.  There is the suggestion that Islamic terrorists are serving their god, but I suggest that some of the suicide bombers at least, are serving themselves.  They are convinced that terrorism works in furthering the aims of Islam, but they serve themselves because they believe by murdering, they will gain entrance to heaven and have access to a bunch of young virgins.  It is a spiritualised version of sex and aggression.  I have added a video link at the end of this article, where you can see that there are differences of opinion between the Muslims themselves.[viii]  It is short, and worth giving a couple of minutes to view.  It includes Australian Muslims and their opposing thoughts on radical Muslims.

Europe in denial

In the years leading up to World War II, Stefan Zweig wrote in Die Welt von Gestern (The World of Yesterday, published in 1942), ‘I felt that Europe, in its state of derangement, had passed its own death sentence – our sacred home of Europe, both the cradle and the Parthenon of Western civilisation’, referring to the Europe that was approaching the war.  Deranged Briton is part of the Western civilisation that is in its demise.  Mass migration, rather than the answer to Europe’s ills, being weighed down by its guilt of the past, loss of confidence and direction, will be the death of Europe.  Europe lost faith in its beliefs, traditions and legitimacy. It has surrendered its hope of survival and of being a viable civilization.  Europe is surrendering it’s will to survive, and is succumbing to an invading world population.  Europe, it seems to me, will cease to exist.   What we have been witnessing over the past forty years or so are birth pangs as the EU morphs into the new, ‘dark continent’.  During the middle of the 19th century, Africa was referred to as the ‘Dark Continent,’ because little was known about the mysterious land itself.  Little is known about the EU by its citizens.  Even though it be peopled, Europe will become unrecognizable.  Light will come out of the darkness, but that light will be deception.  Europe was never a continent of Islam; alas, that is changing; subtly and surely, Islam is putting down deep roots; and this as the roots of European culture are shrivelled and dying.  Europe has become a ‘utopia’ in the original Greek sense of the word: to become ‘no place’.

The importation of terrorism is a reminder that “Fierce (perilous) times are coming…” (2 Timothy 3:1).  Silence is golden in 21st Century Europe.  Citizens of the EU, and that included those in Britain until the Referendum, have had their mouths and opinions clamped by the Politically Correct brigade.  We were not at all encouraged to question the wisdom or logic of Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel’s mass migration policy.  In September 2015, she questioned Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, about what could be done to prevent EU citizens writing criticisms of her migration policy.  She asked Zuckerberg if he was working on it, and he assured her he was.  With the loss of freedom of thought and speech, we lose liberty and justice.

While accusations are made, that social media are not doing enough to counter terrorism, Britain and Europe allow Islam to set up no-go areas in our towns and cities.

France

We will not allow it to change our way of life?

By May 2017, the situation in France was such that The French daily, Le Parisien, disclosed that no-go zones do exist in the heart of the capital.  It appears that the district of Chapelle-Pajol, in the east of Paris, is an area that has become a no-go zone. Hundreds of Muslim migrants and drug dealers crowd the streets, and harass women for wearing, what many of these migrants, consider to be immodest clothing.

In the heart of Paris, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Marseille, Grenoble, Avignon, districts here and there have been ‘privatized’ by a mix of drug traffickers, Salafist zealots and Islamic youth gangs.  The main victims are women.  They are – Muslim and non-Muslim – sexually harassed; some are sexually assaulted.  The politicians, as usual, are fully informed of the situation imposed upon women.

“There are several hundred square metres of pavement abandoned to men alone; women are no longer considered entitled to be there.  Cafés, bars and restaurants are prohibited to them, as are the sidewalks, the subway station and the public squares.” – Le Parisien.

“For more than a year, the Chapelle-Pajol district (10th-18th arrondissements) has completely changed its face: groups of dozens of lone men, street vendors, aliens, migrants and smugglers harass women and hold the streets.” – Le Parisien.

“Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold” (Matthew 24:12).

Dead end doctrine

A way out for Europeans is being worked out in Holland.  The Dutch are currently voting on Assisted dying for healthy older people, i.e., those who are just tired of living, and it is expected to be supported legislatively on the basis of ‘self-determination’.[ix]   The Tory Dementia tax will eventually lead Britain down a similar path, when children will choose to lose their parents rather than their inheritance.  The power of love, that is, love of self, is very strong! And people will be “lovers of their own selves” (2 Timothy 3:2).

Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman Tour

Christian’s are praying for the victims and the families of those who suffered and died in the Manchester terrorist attack; and they are praying for the wider community, the emergency services, and the family of the perpetrator.  Also, for your prayers is the need for the nation’s children to know God. Ariana Grande, aged twenty-three and heroine to thousands of young girls, says she will return to Manchester to hold a benefit gig for victims of the suicide bombing at her concert.

Her May tour included the song, Side to Side:

Side to Side

I've been here all night (Ariana)

Two word meanings, out of the many, unfamiliar words, are:

Warning: Not for the fainthearted –

for a definition of the word “hoes”[x]

Menage – This involves sexual activity between three people at the same time.  A ménage à trois (French for “household of three”) is a domestic arrangement in which three people having romantic and/or sexual relations with each other occupy the same household.  It is a form of polyamory.
