Labour rules out EU referendum

March 12, 2014   |   Category: Prophecy News   |  

UK Labour leader Ed Miliband is to rule out an in/out referendum on EU membership before 2020 unless a new EU treaty proposal bids to transfer more power to Brussels.

The promise will be part of a speech on Wednesday (12 March) by the Labour leader, whose party holds a slight poll lead over the governing Conservatives.

However, Miliband will hold out the prospect of an in/out referendum if a new EU treaty transferred more powers from national to EU level as part of a ‘referendum lock’ bill.

“It is unlikely there will be any such proposals for a transfer of powers in the next parliament, but the British people must know that the history of the EU – as well as uncertainty about precisely what a changing Europe and further integration in the eurozone…

    Most of Syria is back under the Syrian government control. Trump claims he has quit funding the SDF and FSA factions but we still have special forces there and no reconciliation with Assad’s regime for the mostly Kurd forces we protect. We are at odds with Turkey for that continued Kurd force help. I’m hoping Trump can get this group of Kurdish fighters to surrender if they are given a somewhat autonomous area in which to live peaceably in. This will not happen if Putin has his way and Russia has tremendous influence with Shiite controlled governments! God will have to intervene to open this area up to the gospel and free Assad from his Russian, Iranian and Hezzbolah puppetmasters! Eventually the Islamic jihadists follow their pale green horse rider into death and hell! Putin most likely would have to have a change of heart as he claims Russian Orthodoxy faith. Turkey is increasingly becoming an Islamic state in the order of the Muslim Brotherhood type rule and Erdogan is quickly becoming a despot, attacking Kurdish troops in Syria and threatening to invade Iraq to go after the Kurds there and confronting US forces in the Kurd enclaves in Syria. Trump needs to negotiate a way of pacifying all the warring elements but the US is not trusted nor wanted after Obama and Clinton tried to push out Assad and armed radical jihadists in Syria under the Obama administration. They have left Libya in jihadist chaos and were well on the way to doing the same in Egypt and Iraq!!! The black flags of ISIS would be waving over Damascus if Russia had not come in to help Assad, plain and simple! Trump and America needs another Great Awakening if the church is to evangelize the middle east. America and the church cannot be a self absorbed political entity based on commercialism. That black horse rider is an EVIL spirit that brings money interests in control because they LOVE MONEY and oppress the poor and scoff at giving any liberty to peoples to choose or have opportunity for a better life and open their hearts and minds to recieve the gospel.These rich elitists are antigod, antichrist. The love of money is a root of evil. Corporate America is greedy and power hungry. The Apostolic church does not need their money and certainly not the influence peddling they desire not only in government but in Christian churches! We need another GREAT AWAKENING that shakes the halls of congress and the whitehouse that shakes the world!!! Antichrist is given financial control and to his religious minister THE FALSE PROPHET who initiates the 666 mark of the BEAST! The ANTICHRIST SPIRIT HAS BEEN AROUND SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE CHURCH!!! Christ was offered the glory, power and wealth of the nations by satan who boasted FOR THEY ARE MINE TO GIVE. FALL DOWN AND WORSHIP ME AND I WILL GIVE THEM TO YOU! He, satan, is the god of this world. Many a rich man has pursued this stanic offering and been pierced through and through with many a sorrow. Wealth does NOT make America great or rich… knowing God in the power of His name and indwelling Spirit makes us rich!!! We have this treaure in earthen vessels and are sealed with the holy seal of promise to be opened in a city whose builder and maker is God. The streets are paved with gold, it’s walls of jasper and gates of pearl! No hurtful thing can enter it’s gates. No Islamic horde will ravage the city of New Jerusalem. Jesus determines when the seals of the scroll are opened. He was the only one in heaven and earth found worthy to do so. I am praying for the GREAT AWAKENING for the GOSPEL TO BE PREACHED TO THE WHOLE WORLD and then the END OFTHE AGE WILL COME! Jesus has the scroll in His hand and He opens the seals as God has purposed and appointed Him to do. Are we betweeen the third and fourth seals? Are we between the fourth and fifth seals? Has the jihadists pale green horse rode forth and expended itself? I don’t think so but Jesus knows and he will give us the church our promised Great Awakening, endtime gospel being preached in all the world and take out a remant in Israel for His name’s sake and the fulness of the Gentile nations come in. That’s what the church’s Great Commision is; PREACH AND TEACH THE GOSPEL TO ALL NATIONS AND TO EVERY CREATURE. I’m only concerned with the “seal” He has sent and WILL SEND UPON ALL WHO BELIEVE IN IS NAME!!!

    I realize you follow the traditional interpretation of Rev. 13, Have you considered that it has already been fulfilled and it is about the rise and fall of the USSR and the end of the Cold War? Starting with the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 with the 10 Crowns of the Czars prior to that. The Seven Heads being: Lenin, Stalin, Krushchev, Brezhnev, Andropov, Chernenko and Gorbachev with the scar on his head. The beast with two horns, the U.S. two party government. 666: Ronald Wilson Reagan. Six letters in each name. They signed the treaty that ended the Cold War. He also signed a law requiring every man, woman and child to have a Social Security Number.

    Acts 9:13-16 doesn’t talk about the world war as you said at time market 21:50, it says then Annanias answered Lord, i have heard by many of this land how much evil he had done to your saints at Jerusalem and here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call on your name. But the Lord said unto him go your own way for he is a chosen vessel unto me to bear my name before the gentiles and kings and the children of Israel. For i will show him how great things he must suffer for his name’s sake. You might want to record over that spot.

    • Hello Kristine,
      You are correct, Pastor Baxter said the wrong book, it should be Revelation 9:13-16 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

  4. Irvin, I’ve followed you for a long time and I have great love and respect for but you really spoke out of turn on todays show.
    The called who called in about South Africa: I lived and ran a business in South Africa.
    1.) White farms are not being confiscated by blacks or anyone in South Africa. Period. 24 years after emancipation and enfranchisement came to black South Africans, 80% of all wealth and property remain in the hands of the 10% white minority. There was a bill that was proposed by a radical fringe faction in parliament to seize white farms that was overwhelmingly defeated in Parliament.
    Your comments on ‘Rhodesia’ (first: it’s not Rhodesia Irwin, it’s Zimbabwe). Your recounting of Zimbabwean history conveniently left out the hundreds of years white Europeans all but enskaved the black majority and derailed the country of its enormous diamond and Gold wealth, while Reformed Church pastors justified this. Not a single word did you mention of this. It’s true that Mugabe was a communist: you would have been one too if you had been black and born in Rhodesia ! None of the Christian countries supported their emancipation, only the Soviets did. Now, if you were a black Rhodesian, what would you have done??
    And it’s true that Mugabe has been a disaster, but are you saying that the former Apartheid government was preferable because it wasn’t ‘corrupt’ or ‘communist’ (just unbelievably inhuman).
    Black Zimbabweans have the right to screw up their country as much as they wish, just as we have the same right here and in Europe.
    South Africa under Mandela wanted and hoped to do better and the country has moved forwarded much better than Zimbabwe has.

    Lastly, there is no Christian persecution in either South Africa or Zimbabwe. Period. None.
