After seeing someone talking about The Black Coat Regiment yesterday, I looked into it and then this came to me.
I felt a heavy mantle of seriousness falling on me this morning. We’re getting very close to that moment when The Church has to stand up and be counted, or continue to lie down in comfortable acquiescence and lose all our freedoms.
Through the centuries, the main reason that tyranny has never totally succeeded is that The Church has always led the fight for right and for freedom.
This generation of The Church has, through cowardly leadership, meekly surrendered to the onset of tyrannical government.
They’ve become so comfortable within the restrictions that they’ve taken the easy way out — perhaps mistakenly believing that once it all blows over, our freedoms will be restored. They are sadly mistaken because, once we give those freedoms away, we’ll never get them back.
In the American War of Independence (1776-1782) it was recorded that King George III of England was more afraid of the religious leaders in America than of the armies of George Washington.
Because of clerical fashion of the time was that priests and church leaders wore black, he referred to them as ‘The Black Coat Regiment”.
More recently, The Church in the United Kingdom has accepted all the restrictions and losses of freedom to where they are today and has got comfortable.
They have realised they can ‘comply’ and survive without making too much, if any, fuss and accepting being told when, where, why, who, and how they may meet provided they toe the government line!
However, as more and more disclosures are made concerning the viability and efficacy, or otherwise, of the various treatments and remedies dictated by the government, there is coming a moment when these same religious leaders of this present age are going to have to find once again their voice of protest and resistance.
In short, they will very soon have to stand up and be counted, to speak out without fear, to resist or lose every freedom they ever held dear, or The Church they represent will die slowly where they are now.
If The Church remains silent and fails to speak out and resist, then she will effectively acquiesce to the satanic Marxist regime currently trying to repress and subdue the people of this country thereby removing virtually all freedoms of faith and choice and we will become another communist state.
However, when they do speak out and resist, the ‘king’ will once again fear the ‘Black Coated Regiment’ more than any well armed enemy.
The ‘lost’ freedoms, which millions of military personnel gave their lives to give us, will be restored and The Church will thrive as never before.
However, I do not think this dark picture will be fulfilled in its entirety, but it won’t necessarily be because The Church woke up to its duty.
I believe God will move in such a way as to remove this dreadful ‘plandemic‘ — it was planned and executed by evil men — and return our freedoms by sending us an outpouring of His Holy Spirit in awakening and revival such as never seen before.
It’s time for The Church to take the lead again, to stand and fight for everything they’ve ever believed in, to fight whatever the cost!
Not many will do so, but those that do will be blessed beyond . . . while those that continue to bow and take the knee will just wither away and die.
It really is that serious today!
Church, especially leaders, REPENT, turn from your wicked ways, and God will hear, and He will heal our land.
