Excerpts from a Presidential Address by Michael A. Clark At the BIWF Summer Convention, Buxton, 2016
Editor comments here.
Mr. Clark commenced his remarks by issuing this warning, “We need to come to an Advanced State of Alert”.
We are at this moment living in the wonder of our national Independence Day which took place on 23 June 2016 – there have been a number of commemorations in the history of Israel, but it was the Exodus from Egypt that (perhaps) remains deep in our national memory, even if most do not realize that we are descendants of the very same people.
How do we evaluate this dramatic event in terms of the Age-end period for the People of the Book called by God to bring blessing to all the families of the earth? Without any doubt whatsoever, it is a massive sea-change, a correction from a wholly wrong decision of 44 years ago, which is going to involve Global Britain rejoining the world and getting back into alignment with the Divine Purpose for the covenant nations to lead the nations in peace.
In 1922, the British Empire was at the height of its power and just beginning to expand into the British Commonwealth of Nations. We are now 94 years from 1922, or 2 x 47 years, which is 120 x 286.1 days, a double period of warning of displacement and Britain is now displaced from the EU – a very powerful turn of the tide proving that a restoration and even resurrection process is under way. It is more than Brexit – it is ‘Brexodus’ as we move towards the new horizon.
The memory of our forefathers’ bondage and slavery in Egypt has always been lodged in the depths of our national psyche, which is surely why we led the way during the late 18th and early 19th centuries for the abolition of slavery through the dedication of people like William Wilberforce.
After 430 years in the land of Egypt (see Genesis 12:3) the Israelites came forth as the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh against them, only to be perused by Pharaoh’s chariots right up to the Red Sea. In our day, Israel-Britain have come forth from prophetic Egypt in Europe after 43 years, or exactly one-tenth of the time our forefathers were in ancient Egypt. Is the heart of the EU likewise to be hardened?
[It is interesting that] 2015-16 is 70 x 50 years from Israel’s Exodus from Egypt in 1486 BC, which has the meaning of determination for Israel proving beyond doubt that Britain is Israel, as the measure would apply to no other people than Israel.
I thought it hugely ironic for Guy Verhofstadt, the former Prime Minister of Belgium, who now heads up the alliance of Liberal and Democrats for Europe in the EU parliament, to accuse the political figures in Britain of leaving the EU; he said “like rats leaving a sinking ship.” Well, there is only one sinking ship, is there not – and that’s the EU-Titanic?
In the months leading up to the referendum it became more and more obvious that the time for our departure from EU bondage was about to take place. The ‘set time’ (“Thou shall arise … for the time to favour her, yea, the set time is come” Psalm 102:13) had arrived when Almighty God was to bring this nation back into the bond of the covenant and to purge out from among us the rebels (“And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant” Ezekiel 20:37).
The great deception perpetrated upon the British people in 1972 by the false prophets, in particular, Edward Heath, …. submitting the United Kingdom and the Crown to the pagan alien authority of the Treaty of Rome could not stand and we and all our belongings had to be removed from “the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified” (Revelation 11:8).
The Apocalyptic command was that at the set time we were always going to be given our marching orders by Almighty God to “Come out of her [Babylon], my people,” as a nation under God, “that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” (Revelation 19:4) The warning signal is to get clear of the demolition.
We were betrayed by false shepherds who took us into Europe under a false prospectus, who also had an agenda to undermine our unique constitution. Like the prophet Jonah, God allowed the great EU-fish to swallow us as we were thrown overboard by our detractors who said “Britain has lost an empire, but has not yet found a role.”
Thankfully, Brexit took place before 1 April 2017, or the end of Qualified Majority Voting, when we would have had to receive permission from the other 27 EU members to leave the EU.
Like Jonah, Britain and her empire were identified as the cause of the storm upon the raging sea – we were seen as the problem and had to be thrown overboard as the solution. But this has not been the solution as the “distress of nations with perplexity” has steadily increased and increased.
As Project Fear steadily mounted before 23 June, 1,000 economists threatened the British people that they must bow down to the EU-Babylon’s “image of gold” or suffer a fiery furnace of affliction – even “seven times hotter” in an Armageddon cataclysm. After weeks and weeks of this the people of Britain had more than enough. The threat was overdone because the enemy always rushes its fences. The threats did not hold the fear of doom for the United Kingdom, for as one “like the Son of God” stood with the three Hebrew young men in Babylon (Daniel 3:25), so He will stand with us now as the euro zone destructs – as it will.
The EU is imploding and the confirmation came as the result of the Referendum came in. On 23-24 June, 2016, gold was trading at $1260 (tribulation) and then soared through $1335 (finality) per troy ounce hitting $1350 as it became clear that Britain had voted to leave the EU – a signal of approaching destruction!
The Stone Kingdom which has been the irritant in the EU for 43 years finally struck the EU-Goliath on 23-24 June to become the first member nation to leave the supranational organization. We are in effect opening the door to set the captive nations free.
The future of the ‘city’ of the European Union is now being brought into question. It is being said that the Brits have become the canaries in the coal mine, offering Europe, America and the developed world a glimpse of what is coming in the US national elections in November this year. There are already reports that members of the original British Commonwealth, like Australia and New Zealand, are competing to be first to achieve new trade deals with Britain.
There was a growing conviction among those who were aware of the Kingdom identity of the United Kingdom that the day had finally arrived on 23 June, 2016, for our Exodus from bondage in the prophetic Egypt of the European Union. In the event ‘Brexit,’ as it was termed, took place to the great surprise of the political and financial world, the reverberations of which are being likened to an earthquake. Life is returning to the dead body of the Realm, just as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has reached the age of ninety and as the longest reigning monarch.
The Apocalyptic vision in Revelation 11 records that the Two Witnesses, significant of Church and State, unexpectedly resurrect from a death-like state as “the spirit of life from God entered into them.” It also speaks of a great earthquake taking place “in the same hour” in which the city falls. The future of the ‘city’ of the European Union is now being brought into question and there is a real prospect that other Kingdom nations may follow Britain out of the EU, particularly as confidence in the European Central Bank in keeping the Eurozone afloat drains away.
