"Goodbye" to England?

Comment on this article

On a recent trip to the United Kingdom, I was saddened to see how the British people are quietly submitting to the takeover of their once-great nation. Month by month, slowly but surely, it is happening right before their very eyes!

For decades, I have been warning the British-descended and American peoples that very real catastrophes await them if they continue to turn away from the God of the Bible. For that God—the only true God—is now beginning to intervene to chasten the American and British-descended peoples. And although the current humiliations are real, they are only the beginning.

On a recent trip to the United Kingdom, I was saddened to see how the British people are quietly submitting to the takeover of their once-great nation. Month by month, slowly but surely, it is happening right before their very eyes!

As one example of what is occurring, Britain's prestigious Daily Telegraph reported the following in a shocking front-page article dated April 23, 2008:

"England has been wiped off a map of Europe drawn up by Brussels bureaucrats as part of a scheme that the Tories claim threatens to undermine the country's national identity.

The new European plan splits England into three zones that are joined with areas in other countries.

The 'Manche' region covers part of southern England and northern France while the Atlantic region includes western parts of England, Portugal, Spain and Wales. The North Sea region includes eastern England, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and parts of Germany. A copy of the map, which makes no reference to England or Britain, has even renamed the English Channel the 'Channel Sea'. Each zone will have a 'transnational regional assembly', although they will not have extensive powers. However, the zones are regarded as symbolically important by other countries."


Britain's Daily Mail also reported on that insidious scheme, describing how in this European Union-devised plan, each region will be run by a "managing authority" of unelected officials overseen by a director. None will be based in the United Kingdom!

The Daily Telegraph reported a concern voiced by Conservative Party spokesman Eric Pickles, "Now the Labour government has been caught red-handed, conspiring with European bureaucrats to create a European super-state via the back door."

Confronted by Britons outraged at the proposal, the British government's Foreign Office dismissed Pickles' concerns as "ludicrous" and "scaremongering." A Foreign Office statement insisted, "Repeated efforts to scare people into believing that the EU is somehow going to 'abolish Britain' have been proven false time and again—and this is just another pitiful attempt. These groupings are used to distribute funding to different regions in Europe with similar environmental, transport or tourism interests."

An official with England's Department for Communities and Local Government insisted, "These claims are complete rubbish. This is about working with other member states to help ensure European Regional Development Funding supports projects that will really make a difference to our economy and quality of life—particularly in the most deprived areas."

Are the Labour politicians and government bureaucrats telling the truth? Or will a European government try to abolish Britain? What does your Bible say? Many thousands of you know that the British-descended and American peoples are, in fact, the end-time remnant of the ancient "House of Israel" which was conquered by Assyria more than two millennia ago, then was taken into national captivity before it supposedly "disappeared."

Many scholars describe those "disappeared" nations as the "Ten Lost Tribes of Israel." But, although most historians lost sight of them, they did not disappear! Today, the descendants of those nations can be identified clearly as the peoples of northwestern Europe, Britain and the former Commonwealth nations, and the United States. Literally dozens of biblical prophecies describe what has happened to these peoples, what is now happening, and what will soon happen—unless they repent and turn wholeheartedly to the God of the Bible.

This truly fascinating history—a genuine "key" to help us understand about 90 percent of end-time prophecy—is explained in our eye-opening booklet, The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy. You really do need to carefully read this vital booklet! If you do not yet have a copy, write or call our regional office nearest to you (listed at the bottom of this page), or go online to www.tomorrowsworld.org, and request a free copy of this powerful and most meaningful booklet. It really will open your eyes to what is now beginning to happen.

Many biblical prophecies predict what is starting to happen to the U.S. and the British-descended peoples. The entire book of Hosea, in fact, is a dual prophecy—describing what was to happen to those nations in ancient times, and what is about to happen to them today, during the prophesied "time of the end." As the United States and Great Britain in Prophecy explains, the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic peoples of Britain are the descendents of the tribe of Ephraim—one of the so-called "Lost Ten Tribes."

Please understand. The tribe of Ephraim is not "Jewish"—and the Bible makes a clear distinction between the "House of Israel" and the "House of Judah (2 Kings 14:12–14)." So, what does God's inspired word say will happen to these British-descended people of modern Ephraim?

"Ephraim has mixed himself among the peoples; Ephraim is a cake unturned. Aliens have devoured his strength, but he does not know it; yes, gray hairs are here and there on him, yet he does not know it. And the pride of Israel testifies to his face, but they do not return to the Lord their God, nor seek Him for all this" (Hosea 7:8–10).

New European Union regulations are encouraging millions of immigrants to enter Britain, particularly from the formerly Communist nations of Eastern Europe. Waves of immigrants, whether Roman Catholic or Muslim, are changing the long-standing character of neighborhoods—sometimes even of whole towns and villages. During my trip to Britain earlier this year, I was struck by the number of articles in the British press lamenting the nation's loss of its British character. Is it any wonder that many native Britons become so upset when confronted by EU plans that ignore the national boundaries of Britain, when they see that the EU bureaucrats prefer instead to divide the nation's citizenry into various "regions" along with other nations, without regard for Britain's national character and history?

Is Britain destined to be swallowed up into Europe? God Almighty says: "Israel is swallowed up; now they are among the Gentiles like a vessel in which is no pleasure. For they have gone up to Assyria, like a wild donkey alone by itself; Ephraim has hired lovers. Yes, though they have hired among the nations, now I will gather them; and they shall sorrow a little, because of the burden of the king of princes" (Hosea 8:8–10). The British part of the modern "House of Israel" is on the verge of being "swallowed up." Perhaps Britain's misguided leaders think that they will gain economic advantages through various treaties and alliances with "hired lovers." Little do they realize the predicted "sorrow" this will bring!

What should our friends and loved ones in Britain do? God's word says, "Because Ephraim has made many altars for sin, they have become for him altars for sinning. I have written for him the great things of My law, but they were considered a strange thing" (Hosea 8:11–12). Those comparatively few Britons who truly fear God should tremble at Hosea's words, and should wholeheartedly return to the God of the Bible, begin to honor Him and begin to obey the "great" things of His Law!

As the end-time servants of the living God, we in this Work are now warning our beloved friends in Britain to "wake up" and to realize what is starting to happen! For, slowly but surely, over the next several years, the once-great British nation will be brought down—unless it undergoes a national repentance that is genuine. As we have warned in the past, Britain may eventually opt out—or be put out—of the EU. Even so, as God's word makes clear, the coming takeover of Britain by a ten-nation confederation—which your Bible describes as the "Beast"—is absolutely certain unless there is real repentance!

Though Britain's Daily Telegraph wrote, "Say Goodbye to England," God's word reveals the good news that the British people will be brought back from captivity, and will learn to "seek" the Lord their God when Christ's Kingdom is established in the "latter days" (Hosea 3:5). God speed that day!
