“Therefore behold, I am going to make them know—this time I will make them know My power and My might; and they shall know that My Name is Yahweh.” (Jeremiah 16: 21)
Brexit isn’t the Whole Story or Even the Main Story
On Thursday, Britons will vote on whether or not to remain in the European Union. Financial markets will gyrate. Gold and other precious metals prices could rise or fall dramatically. Politicians around the world are wringing their hands.
The world is in a state of uneasy political flux. ISIS is on the rise. Europe is importing Islamists by the millions in a sort of slow-motion suicide. Western leaders can’t overcome their lust to be politically correct, and Islamists know how to take advantage of opportunity.
The U.S. is guilty, too. Islamists see an opening in America.
Saying that things look murky is putting it mildly.
According to a recent Pew Research poll, Great Britain’s possible exit isn’t the only problem facing the EU. Other countries in Europe are beginning to wonder about the wisdom of the concept of a “united Europe”. It’s easy to understand why. Common sense has left the building. It reminds me of pre-World War II days.
We are witnessing a new world order taking shape, and it’s not encouraging. It’s the first big global shift since the end of World War II. The collapse of the Soviet Union doesn’t compare because it was contained. Nobody knows for sure what the world will look like in a few years.
This is my take on it:
- Radical Islam will continue to spread, increasing in both wealth and power and putting tremendous pressure on civilized nations.
- Europe will continue to dissolve. I think it will gravitate toward the pre-EU Europe we used to know with a formidable Islamist presence. Europe is a powder key.
- The U.S. may stand firm against our common enemy, but that’s not certain. Our next presidential election could determine our fate. If Clinton is elected, forget about it. If Trump is elected, I think we have a chance.
- China is making all the right moves politically and economically. In the new world, China will be a key player, maybe the key player.
- Turkey and Iran are in the game. Both countries are heading in the wrong direction, and they are moving quickly.
- Russia is a wild card. Torn between communism and capitalism, dictatorship and democracy, Russia is like a schizophrenic with nuclear weapons. It’s dangerous.
One thing is absolutely certain. Israel will continue to be viewed as a global problem by the ignorant masses. How can such a tiny country with so few people attract so much world attention?
Yahweh planned it that way. In the end, no one will have an excuse. Either we are for Him or we are against Him.
Yahweh made promises to and about Israel that He will fulfill. We can support Israel and be on the winning team or stand against her and be crushed into dust and scattered to the wind.
That may sound like hyperbole, but it’s not. If anything, it’s too mild. None of us have a good idea what hell is like. Imagine your worst fear or your most frightening nightmare. No matter how bad they are, hell is worse.
So, while the Brexit vote will be interesting, it’s not the whole story. It’s not even the main story. It’s a small piece in a very large jigsaw puzzle that can’t be comprehended without Yahweh’s help.

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me. Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17: 22-24)
