commentary: Britain, the Lisbon Treaty and the United States (Part 2)
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 24-May-08; Sermon #883c; 11 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, continuing on the special announcement about the Lisbon Treaty and Britain"s loss of sovereignty to the European Union, points out that when the British people could vote, they rejected these entanglements soundly, but when Prime Minister Tony Blair and Queen Elizabeth (influenced by all kinds of underhanded political skullduggery) signed treaties, ignoring the will of the people, Britain's sovereignty became threatened. 110,000 EU regulations will in effect wipe out Britain's sovereignty, putting it under the mercy of a committee dictatorship, stripping away any representation from the British people. This EU configuration could well represent the iron and clay image described by Daniel with the iron representing the Gentiles and the clay representing the Israelites. America (Manasseh) should take heed that it is closely following the lead of Britain (Ephraim).
