Pen or Pencil?

Leave the European Union X

I’ve just returned from casting my vote, which having hardly set-out for struck-up a conversation with a lady who also intending to ‘Vote Leave’, stated that she believed the vote would be rigged in favour of Remain.

Having arrived at my polling station which was notably more busy than usual, I received my card and was just scrawling the cross in the correct box when I was reminded of a video blog I had watched recently, a vlog that encouraged the viewer to take a pen with them to the polling station because they were all using pencils which could easily be rubbed-out. Slightly annoyed with myself I pressed the nib into the paper all the harder, to the point of almost spoiling the vote when turning I called out to the attendants...

Why is the polling station using pencils which can be rubbed-out?

...interrupting a conversation they were already engaged in with an elderly gentlemen who was waving a pen in his hand, I lie not. He had been asking them if he could use his pen, whom turning to me responded to my rude statement by saying...

How much more would it have cost them to purchase five pens instead of five pencils, really?

The gentlemen kindly allowed me to borrow his pen and I retraced my cross before passing it back to him that he might cast his own vote. The lady at the stall assured me that there was no possibility of electoral fraud taking place, to which replied in an air of sarcastic humour that she didn’t seem to yet...

Well it is not like electoral fraud has ever happened before is it?

She replying...

Not in this country!

A statement which I refuted as gently as my fervency would permit.
And thats just it isn’t it? We send ‘observers’ all over the world to ensure that there is no electoral fraud in these supposed corrupt countries, yet glorying in our own honour rarely consider if it could happen to us in the United Kingdom... which of course it can and has, especially with the postal ballot.
Personally, if the United Kingdom ever adopts an electronic voting system I will cease to vote, for as far as I’m concerned, if that ever happens democracy it dead because in my opinion there is no way that those who have the means to... will be able to resist the few taps of a keyboard it takes to ensure their agenda’s are adhered to.

Jeremiah 17:9
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?

Anyway, the dice has been cast and the future set. It is as expressed elsewhere, my belief that if we Leave the EU we are in for a season of chastisement, that the dross of this nation having been brought to the top of the pan might be taken away. The boiling may be unpleasant but once the dross has been removed, all that is left is pure and wholesome.

1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Today the United Kingdom’s values vastly differ from those it once held and was blessed. Today children are taught to experiment with dress that through diversity they might be indoctrinated into gender confusion. Astonishingly perversity is actually celebrated on our streets where men prance about in bikinis, striking sexual poses before the children while others protected by state law actively persecute Christians and cast God’s Word to the ground.
My oft prayer is that God brings us back to His standard, and that often means the Cross, even a time of chastisement that multitudes of my countrymen and women of all races having been set free from the blinding power of that spirit... might suddenly see our awful state, repent and casting off these perversities call out to a Holy God and that He should answer them.

Hebrews 12:7-11
7 - If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten?
8 - But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.
9 - Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live?
10 - For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.
11 - Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

In those days, those of us who have felt the rod of His correction and learned by it, shall have an opportunity to share the grace, love and saving message of Christ to newly opened ears.

Luke 10:2
Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest”.

In fact, maybe we are already there, it just doesn’t feel that way at the moment, as few appear willing to listen, but what have feelings to do with fact?

John 4:35
Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!

However if we Remain in this godless European Union, the spirit of which [Europa] appears to be driving the doctrines of political correctness and equality so called, then I believe we are on the final approach to seeing the formation of a New World Order wherein we shall see an acceleration of wickedness, the exaltation of perversity and the persecution of the saints.
