Brexit and Chrexit!

After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted: “ ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”  Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “ ‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes.

Revelation 18:1-5 (NIV)

The people of the United Kingdom have voted to leave the European Union!  It was a very bold decision based partly on the fact that the UK was required to accept lots of immigrants who had no allegiance to the country and who made it harder for ordinary British citizens to work and provide for their families.

As I write (speak) these words the decision is less than one day old and the world is bracing for the earthquake which is sure to happen!

If you are a follower of Jesus, then God has called you to “come out” of the world system and depend on Him and not the world around you!   When you do that your life will never be the same again.  It will shake your world like an earthquake.  How you spend your time and money will change.  The things you treasure will be moved from earth to Heaven!  The world around you will think you have lost your mind and that common sense has departed from every thought.  

But when Christians Exit this world and put their focus on Heaven as the goal of life here on earth, by simply doing that, they will challenge others to turn to Jesus themselves!

“Lord Jesus, give me the courage today to vote to exit the world and set my feet on the path toward Heaven.  Praise Your Name forever.  Amen!”
