    The British Government is about to make free speech illegal for Christians.

    At the moment the British government is trying to make it law for homosexuals to be able to marry in any Church they desire throughout the length and breadth of the UK. The homosexual community would also have the right in law to advertise gay events in Church magazines. In fact it is going to be illegal to say that homosexuality is wrong, and any Christian who says it is against the Bible is likely to be arrested.

    This week the whole subject is going to debated in the House of Lords. It's time for us to pray against these laws and to protest to our local Member of Parliament. There has been little in the media about these proposed law changes the government would try to introduce them by stealth as they have in Northern Ireland.
    God is good all the time.

    Lord, we know that there are strong Christian voices in the House of Lords of the UK. We pray that you fill those voices with your words and bring this legislation down to defeat. In Jesus' name, Amen and Amen!

    Amen Tonyb. Just before Christmas the leader of one of the main Pentecostal Churches in NI was on the front page of NI's main evening paper. He has taken a stand and said that no way is this going to be allowed and he is prepared to go to jail for the cause. Many people here back his stance.
    Apart from this many of us wouldn't even have known this was to be introduced here from 1st January this year. As far as I know Christians are taking this to court. Prayer is indeed much needed for the UK, including Northern Ireland.
    Jesus is Lord.

    This is just plain sick. What gives the "law" the right to FORCE gay communities to advertise in church magazines? This is not only unethical, immoral but completely inhumane to freedom. Totally the work of the devil.

    Within the next hour or so (as I type this post) The unelected Upper House of the UK Pariament (The House of Lords) will attempt to introduce this law BY STEALTH just as Tonyb has indicated.

    Some examples of those who would render themselves liable to prosecution would be a Minister who refused to bless a 'gay marraige', a hotelier who refused to allow a bed to be used for homoesexual behaviour, or a Christian teacher who refused to teach homosexuality as a morally acceptable practice.

    Today, here in England, Christians, Muslims, Jews, and upright moral subjects of The Queen and The Christian Alliance of Lawyers are in unison in their stand against this law. Just as I type - I have heard on the TV BBC News a spokeswoman for the Christian Alliance of Lawyers declare that this proposed law will "go the other way and discriminate against Christian rights.

    Please pray for us! Pray God will intervene and His Will be done.

    Matthew 24:36-39

    36"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.


    Jesus' return is closer than we think dear brothers and sisters. I will pray to God, but I know in my heart that this is what was prophecised. I'm sorry to say, but read Mattew 24, you will be persecuted and there is no hope except Christ.

    The day of the Lord has come, is arriving day by day, the hour is unknown, nor the exact day, but He will come.

    Homosexuality is legal in South Africa, it's a state of living in sin under the National law, more things will follow for my country as the UK and US are it's rolemodels.

    May God have mercy on us.

    God bless
    Much love

    31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.

    Well, 'Their (UK) Lords Spritiual and Temporal' have voted to enact UK law from April this year called The Sexual Orientation Regulations 2007 which will criminalise a Christian Minister who refuses to perform a Church 'blessing ceremony' on a 'gay marraige' or a Christian school teacher who refuses (as the law will DEMAND) to teach our children that homosexual activity and marraige is morally and legally correct and acceptable, or a hotelier who refuses to allow his premises or a double bed to be used for homosexual activity.

    I asked you for your prayers that Gods Will be done. He has wonderfully answered ....

    "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    (Matthew 5:10-11)

    I personally am praying there will be much rejoicing and gladness in Old England as we face this persecution for His Name Sake.

    Like those who were imprisoned and executed in persecution of the early Church we like them will pray, "And now, Lord, observe their threats and grant to Your bond servants [full freedom] to declare Your message fearlessly" (Acts 4:29 AB)

    We are in end-time days.

    Maranatha!
