Choose the Commonwealth NOT EU! Australians call for new migrant rights after Brexit

COMMONWEALTH countries are urging the British government to give their citizens improved rights after Brexit.

By BELINDA ROBINSON   PUBLISHED: 13:10, Fri, Aug 18, 2017

Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and British Prime Minister Theresa MayTheresa May's plans for EU citizens post Brexit are being looked over by commonwealth countries

The calls, led by Australian foreign minister Julie Bishop, are growing louder as the British team negotiate citizens rights with the European Union.

Ms Bishop told The Times there would be widespread disappointment in Australia and fellow Commonwealth countries if nothing is done to secure the rights of its population in Britain.

She warned her concerns were echoed by New Zealand, India and Canada.

Under the proposals which Theresa May outlined to fellow leaders in June, all EU nationals who have been in the UK for five years will be entitled to “settled status”, granting them the same rights as their British neighbours to healthcare, education, welfare benefits and pensions.

Those with a shorter period of residency will be able to stay on to reach the five-year threshold and others arriving after a yet-to-be-defined cut-off date will have a “grace period” to regularise their status.

Ms Bishop has demanded the same rights as those offered to the EU - meaning, Australians will have a greater right to remain in the UK.

Mrs May said her plans “Give those three million EU citizens in the UK certainty about the future of their lives and we want the same certainty for the more than one million UK citizens who are living in the European Union.”

Australian foreign minister Julie Bishop wants Australians rights to be secure after Brexit

The Home Office has plans to give European citizens wanting to work in Britain after Brexit a soft touch immigration option.

They would not need to apply for visas but their employers would need to get a work permit. This way, the government would be able to control the number of permits issued.

However, many Commonwealth countries fear the system would penalise their citizens. They have to have secured a job and have a visa at hand to ensure that they can come to England.

Australians have to obtain a visa to allow them to stay in the UK for five years - but are only eligible if they have secured a skilled job, with a £25,000 salary.

All EU nationals who have been in the UK for five years will be entitled to “settled status”

At least 137,000 EU citizens came to work in the UK last year. 

Figures show that there were at least 157,000 Australians and New Zealand working in the UK. 

But many commonwealth countries are hoping that the process could be streamlined.

Bible Students fully expected to see Britain embrace the Commonwealth Countries following BREXIT. Bible Prophecy is very clear on the fact that Britain will along with the Commonwealth Countries (and America who is also of British origin) make up the King of the South at the time of the end that will move to stop Russia and Europe from invading the Middle East.

God has declared the End from the Beginning and the Bible (God's Word) revealed that Britain would not be part of the EU when Christ Returns to Earth, and World Events have conspired to ensure that has now happened. But we need to keep watching this development as there is much to see yet as Britain takes her place once more on the World Political Stage.

See this Article to learn more about Britian and the Commonwealth Block in Bible Prophecy.

So yet again we see the hand of God at work in the nations to ensure that His purpose unfolds on the earth.  Britain has now voted to leave the EU and will rebuild her ties with the Commonwealth Block.  Together they will challenge the rise of Russia and the EU and their influence in the Middle East.

WHY IS BIBLE TRUTH SO IMPORTANT?

Bible Truth

THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE TRUTH

Is Bible Truth important to your Faith and Salvation ie. will you be saved despite what you believe the bible teaches or does it matter what you believe?

Well the word “truth” appears 237 times in the bible, that alone says it must be important!

Therefore it must be important to understand what “truth” is.

A quick scan of the passages using this word “truth” leave us in no doubt that it is not only important, but vital to our salvation.

John 17:3

3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

1 John 5:20

20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true,even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1 Timothy 2:3-4

3For thisis good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

 

Clearly then knowing what is Bible Truth is important and vital, in addition to this we are also warned that some would depart from the “truth”…

1 Timothy 4:1

1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry,and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

1 John 4:6

6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

From these passages it is very clear that we need to know the “truth” about God and His Son as it is taught to us in the Bible.  This means we must learn what this is from the Bible itself.

 

Don't let your HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL rest with someone else eg. your pastor or minister, YOU owe it to yourself and your family to be fully convinced of what it is you believe to be sure it HOLDS something REAL for you.

We have all been warned by God that there would be many false teachers and Jesus himself has told us that "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."  See Matthew 7:14

 

Sadly when Christ returns to this earth, many will only then realise that they have believed in lies Jeremiah 16:19

"19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit."

Don't let this be you or your family!

 

BIBLE TRUTH and true faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

You owe it to yourself and your family to be sure of what it is you believe, the Apostle Paul has told us to "work out our own salvation with fear and trembling"  Philippians 2:12

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

Astonishing Archaeological Discovery at Lachish

True Bible Teaching - What the Bible really says about God and His Purpose

Astonishing Archaeological Discovery at Lachish

 In like manner, the land of Israel has had a similar effect upon the restored Jewish nation. One cannot dig in the land of Israel without involuntarily opening sluices for the obstructed springs of an ancient religious civilization! One only has to think of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the many recent discoveries in the City of David in Jerusalem to realize that this is the case.

Just this last week there was an astonishing archaeological discovery announced from the current excavations at Lachish. Lachish was a strategic city for Judah as it lay in the region of the foothills on the coastal plain and so controlled the north south passage for those travelling from Syria to Egypt. There have been previous astonishing discoveries regarding Lachish.

Archaeological Discoveries at Lachish

The Lachish letters discovered in the 1930's, written on large pottery fragments, contain communication between important cities of Judah, near the time the city fell to the Babylonians and have interesting Biblical connections. One can feel the spirit of the times as described in the Bible in the letters. There is a prophet mentioned in the Lachish letters who is said to be liable to weaken the hands of the people. This is a similar message to Jeremiah in chapter 38:1-4 where the text says:

"Then Shephatiah the son of Mattan, and Gedaliah the son of Pashur, and Jucal the son of Shelemiah, and Pashur the son of Malchiah, heard the words that Jeremiah had spoken unto all the people, saying, Thus saith the Lord, He that remaineth in this city shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence: but he that goeth forth to the Chaldeans shall live; for he shall have his life for a prey, and shall live. Thus saith the Lord, This city shall surely be given into the hand of the king of Babylon's army, which shall take it. Therefore the princes said unto the king, We beseech thee, let this man be put to death: for thus he weakeneth the hands of the men of war that remain in this city, and the hands of all the people, in speaking such words unto them: for this man seeketh not the welfare of this people, but the hurt.”

In one of the letters there is also a record of Coniah son of Elnathan going down to Egypt, which sounds very much like the record in Jeremiah 26:20-23

Lachish Ostraca

"And there was also a man that prophesied in the name of the Lord, Urijah the son of Shemaiah of Kirjathjearim, who prophesied against this city and against this land according to all the words of Jeremiah. And when Jehoiakim the king, with all his mighty men, and all the princes, heard his words, the king sought to put him to death: but when Urijah heard it, he was afraid, and fled, and went into Egypt; And Jehoiakim the king sent men into Egypt, namely, Elnathan the son of Achbor, and certain men with him into Egypt. And they fetched forth Urijah out of Egypt, and brought him unto Jehoiakim the king; who slew him with the sword, and cast his dead body into the graves of the common people., "And it was told to your servant, saying, "The commander of the army, Coniah, son of Elnatan, has gone down to go to Egypt," and as for Hodavyahu, son of Ahijah and his men: he (commander Coniah) sent (orders) to take (them) from that (location-Egypt)."

The Lachish reliefs, decorating the Lachish room in Sennacherib’s palace, depict the siege of Lachish. The room in the palace was used as a waiting room for foreign dignitaries. Lachish must have been an important city and Judah considered a powerful nation in order for the king of Assyria to boast of his exploits in this way. It is very significant, and fits in with the Biblical account that the reliefs in the palace do not depict Jerusalem! In conjunction with these, the Sennacherib or Taylor Prism fits in with the Biblical record and mentions Hezekiah.

“As to Hezekiah, the Jew, he did not submit to my yoke, I laid siege to his strong cities… Himself I made a prisoner in Jerusalem, his royal residence, like a bird in a cage. I surrounded him with earthwork in order to molest those who were his city’s gate."

King Hezekiah is well represented in Biblical Archaeology! There have also been discovered royal seals of Hezekiah and of course Hezekiah’s tunnel bringing the water of the Gihon spring into the city of Jerusalem.

Smashed altar at Tel Lachish

Another Astonishing Discovery at Lachish

Recently the most important gate of the city of Lachish has been excavated. It fits in with other city gates of the time, although larger, and has chambers where the elders and rulers of the city could congregate as described in the book of Ruth. It is also recorded how Hezekiah brought the elders together in this way in 2 Chronicles 32:6,7

"And he set captains of war over the people, and gathered them together to him in the street of the gate of the city, and spake comfortably to them, saying, Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him"
Sa’ar Ganor, the dig’s director described jar handles with impressions indicating that they belonged to the king of Hebron and one of the jar handles says “to the king”, and has a depiction of a four-winged scarab beetle. Hezekiah had this beetle on his official seal. Another handle says, “to Nahum my servant”, which Ganor says was probably a senior official during the reign of Hezekiah. The archaeologist says these jars were probably there in preparation for the Assyrian invasion.

The astonishing discovery was a gate shrine, with two four-horned altars and scores of ceramic finds consisting of lamps, bowls and stands. The horns of the altar had been intentionally smashed and a toilet installed in the shrine! Hezekiah’s reforms are recorded in 2 Kings 18:3-4

"And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that David his father did. He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto th ose days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan."

This describes the smashed horns on the altar. But what about the toilet? The archaeologist referred to the similar reforms carried out by Jehu in 2 Kings 10. Verses 26, 27 in the ESV we read,

"and they brought out the pillar that was in the house of Baal and burned it. And they demolished the pillar of Baal, and demolished the house of Baal, and made it a latrine to this day.”

The Jerusalem Post article as some very interesting comments by government ministers in Israel on this amazing discovery.

The toilet being discovered at Tel Lachish.

"Ze’ev Elkin, Minister of Jerusalem Heritage and Environmental Protection, lauded the discovery and analysis as another breakthrough in bringing the Bible to life.

"“The fascinating new discovery at Tel Lachish is a typical example whereby excavations and further research of heritage sites show us time and time again how Biblical tales that are known to us become historical and archaeological stories,” said Elkin.

"“This discovery is an illuminating example of the verse that described King Hezekiah. Before our very eyes, these new finds become the Biblical verses themselves, and speak in their voice. We in the Ministry of Jerusalem and Heritage will continue to lead the effort whereby as many Israelis as possible will be exposed to the enthralling experience of ancient stones that speak to us of the Bible in their own unique voice.”

"Minister of Culture and Sport, MK Miri Regev, echoed Elkin’s sentiments.

"“The uncovering of these finds joins a long list of discoveries that enlighten us about our historic past – a past that is manifested in our country’s soil and in the writings of the Book of Books,” said Regev.

"“The Bible – the founding book of the Jewish people, draws the country’s boundaries and the heritage of the Jewish people that was exiled from its country, and returned to its homeland,” she continued.

"“It boldly commemorates the way of our forefathers, the prophets, the kings, and the judges, and the Israel Antiquities Authority deserves praise for this important discovery –a discovery that deepens our connection to our ancestors who walked this land.””

This discovery again proves the accuracy of the Biblical records. Not only that, but it also once again demonstrates how the soil of the land of Israel, brings you to the Hebrew scriptures. It is finds such as this that bring the scriptures to the attention of the Jews that have returned to the land. Ezekiel the prophet wrote:

"And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for the which I lifted up mine hand to give it to your fathers.” (Ezekiel 20:42)
