Brexit is a harbinger of things to come

By now, everyone should know that Great Britain voted to opt out of the European Union.  What actually happened in Great Britain is still unclear.

After the vote, leaders of the Brexit movement were celebrating while many those who voted to exit were Googling anxiously to find out what they had done.  More than 2 million Brits signed a petition to have a referendum do-over.  EU leaders have said that they want to expedite the exit process.  German leaders fear that Brexit could trigger a domino effectPolling data suggests that they are right.  Europe could come unglued in short order.

European political leaders may be the only people in Europe who don’t get it.  Britons were the first to tell their government that they are fed up with intrusive interference in their lives.  Voters who are unhappy with the status quo aren’t well-organized.  The Brexit vote was simply a way to give voice to their feelings.

That’s the way movements begin.  When the ball starts rolling, leaders step in to take control.  That’s where Europe is now.  We still don’t know who the eventual leaders will be.

The Brexit vote is important because the issues raised during the debate are boiling over in countries all over Europe and the rest of the world.  The U.S. is no exception.

Reasons for Great Britain’s exit from the European Union are telling.  They provide us with a glimpse of our future.

Brexit is a prelude to the 2016 presidential election in the U.S.  Britons have had enough of establishment politicians telling them the way things have to be.  They stood up and said, “No, they don’t have to be that way.”  The same thing is going to happen in the U.S.

Immigration is a huge problem in Europe, Great Britain included.  Islamists have infiltrated the “refugee” ranks.  They are wrecking havoc everywhere they go.  ISIS has said that they will ramp up their efforts to bring Europe to its knees based in large part on what they think the Brexit vote says about political decay in Europe.

The mayhem that Islamists have inflicted on Europe (rape, murder, random acts of violence, and anti-Semitism) has not inspired establishment politicians to deal with the mess they created.

People are angry about it.  They should be.  European political leaders are going to pay a high price for ignoring the will of the masses.

Instead of closing the door on Muslim “refugees” until proper vetting could be done, European leaders accused people who oppose their misguided policies of being Islamophobes and xenophobic.  That’s a hard pill to swallow when you know the facts and know that you are right.

It sounds a lot like the U.S.  Most establishment politicians from both parties are out in left field.  Just like their British counterparts, they can’t see what’s coming.

Concern about globalization was a front burner issue in Britain.  The benefits of globalized trade haven’t been what Europeans were told they would be.  Ordinary citizens are suffering.  Some of them are losing their jobs.  Interest rates are so low that a large and growing number of retirees are having a hard time getting by.  Government control of their lives has reached epic proportions.  Britons said, “We’ve had it.”

The same thing is happening in the U.S.

I’ve said this before.  I think we are in the early phases of World War III.  What we are witnessing today is like the march to World War II with one notable exception.  Islamists represent a sizable minority of Europe’s population.  They are a large enough minority to make a huge difference politically.  Some of them think we still live in the Dark Ages, and they act like it.  Prior to World War II, that wasn’t the case.

Islamists see Europe as their top priority for now.  Other targets are being developed.  The U.S. is one of them.

Despite what Obama and Democrats say, Islamists are Muslims.  Denying reality will cost them dearly.  In effect, voters are going to say, “Don’t piss on me and tell me that it’s raining.”

Islamists are hell bent on creating a global caliphate under Sharia law.  They are willing to die to make it happen.  European political leaders are asleep at the switch.  The British people are waking up.

The same thing is happening in the U.S.

During times like these, unlikely candidates win elections.  To many Germans in the 1930s, Hitler was a joke.  Many of those who supported him believed that he was saying outrageous things just to win support from the masses but that he would pivot to the center after he took office.

They were wrong.  Hitler wasn’t a joke.  He meant exactly what he said.

The same is true for Obama.  In 2008, many people thought that he was a joke and that he didn’t really mean what he said.  They were wrong, too.

Eight years later, we know the truth.  The coal industry in the U.S. is almost dead thanks to Obama.  The U.S. military is lifting the ban on transgender soldiers thanks to Obama.  Gun control advocates in Congress are holding civil rights era sit-ins on the House floor, literally, thanks to Obama.

Obama is the ultimate establishment politician.  Despite all the GOP jawboning, he has pushed for things that Democrats and Republicans have been force feeding us for decades.  This is the major difference between Obama and the rest of the political pack: he doesn’t care what people think, so he pushed too hard.

Donald Trump is poised to win a landslide victory in November despite what the polls are showing.  It won’t be easy.  According to the Wall Street Journal, “Republican delegates are pushing for a party conscience rule to unbind them from having to support Donald Trump at the national convention.”  If the GOP faithful are successful, no matter who they nominate will lose.  They could end up handing the election to Hillary Clinton, but I doubt that will happen.

I think Yahweh intends to use Donald Trump to judge the U.S. or to revive us.  If I’m right, He won’t do it in the normal way.  He will arrange things so that Trump’s election seems highly unlikely, and Trump will win despite seemingly insurmountable odds.  That’s the way Yahweh works.

It will be a sight to see.  I think Yahweh will do something like He did when Elijah confronted the prophets of Ba’al on Mount Carmel:

30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come near to me.” So all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of Yahweh which had been torn down. 31 Elijah took twelve stones according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of Yahweh had come, saying, “Israel shall be your name.” 32 So with the stones he built an altar in the name of Yahweh, and he made a trench around the altar, large enough to hold two measures of seed. 33 Then he arranged the wood and cut the ox in pieces and laid it on the wood. 34 And he said, “Fill four pitchers with water and pour it on the burnt offering and on the wood.” And he said, “Do it a second time,” and they did it a second time. And he said, “Do it a third time,” and they did it a third time. 35 The water flowed around the altar and he also filled the trench with water.

36 At the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet came near and said, “O Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, today let it be known that You are God in Israel and that I am Your servant and I have done all these things at Your word. 37 Answer me, O Yahweh, answer me, that this people may know that You, O Yahweh, are God, and that You have turned their heart back again.” 38 Then the fire of Yahweh fell and consumed the burnt offering and the wood and the stones and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. 39 When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, “Yahweh, He is God; Yahweh, He is God.” 40 Then Elijah said to them, “Seize the prophets of Baal; do not let one of them escape.” So they seized them; and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there. (1 Kings 18: 30-40)

A Trump victory in November would be a repudiation of Democrats and Republicans.  It would be a message to the American people that Yahweh is God.  He is in complete control. Some will get it.  Others won’t.

After the Brexit vote, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced that he would be stepping down.  The same kind of thing will happen in the U.S. when Trump wins.  Many establishment politicians will step aside.  If they don’t quit on their own, voters will show them the door.

Their days are numbered.  They will know it for sure after the election.

Trump is not a joke.  Pay careful attention to what he says.  At this point, he may not know that he is a tool in Yahweh’s hands.  He needs to understand that fact.  Elijah did.

Donald Trump has an opportunity to be a force for good or for evil.  Pray for him.  Yahweh “removes kings and establishes kings”. (Daniel 2: 21)  He can use Trump.

“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)
