The recent, considerably violent uprising in and around London over the last week illustrates to a world audience, in the most graphic way imaginable, what will happen when a society turns away from God, and encourages atheism, homosexuality, racial integration and Islam to flourish where Godly principles once prevailed.
Romans 1:28 instructs us in this context:
“And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”
Throughout history, we observe that societies which elevate God’s law above the sinful desires of man, and his contrived notion of individual liberty, flourish. They grow in strength and numbers, and illuminate for all the world the power of God’s law, and his love for the lost souls of Humanity.
Over the centuries since the death of King James in 1625, the English have gradually descended into a blinding depth of secularism, embracing with increasing ignorance Satan’s plan to lead the English people and all of Humanity into darkness and lawlessness. With the slow and eventual degradation of the Monarchy’s power of rule came the inevitable inability of the Church of England to justly influence and guide the British Parliament toward enforcing God’s holy law. Now, they are effectively given over to lawlessness and sins of the flesh.
In the modern United Kingdom, homosexuality is rampant. Even men who are not technically homosexual by sexual preference take on the appearance of homosexuality in mannerism and behavior, revealing a certain idolatry in sinful deference to the abomination of the wicked craft of homosexuality. The Parliament protects and encourages this unhealthy and sinful expression of sexual depravity, to the extent that children are four times more likely to become homosexual by their early teens than at any previous time in the history of this once great nation.
Friends in Christ, make no mistake. Witchcraft, idolatry, racial impurity, religious infidelity, homosexuality and a host of other profoundly destructive sins have taken a strong hold on the once Christian Kingdom of Britain.
The youth of British society have taken notice, and they are rising up in great numbers, demonstrating acts of profound protest to the great British revolt against the rule of God’s law. The actions may be extreme, but the message is clear. They are demanding, through these acts of civil disobedience, that the country be returned to the rightful rule of the most right God. They have witnessed, in the destruction of morality in the United States, the painful consequence of a turning away from The LORD.
The youth of Great Britain, through these demonstrations, have placed The Queen on notice to appoint a Government faithful to the commandments of God, and willing to once again implement those commandments in a manner which serves God first, and man only after the will of The LORD.
