UK PM Theresa May signs Article 50 for BREXIT to become LAWBritish Prime Minister Theresa May has signed a letter invoking Article 50, which will formally start the process for the country's exit from the European Union.

May's office announced the letter had been signed and released a photo showing May signing the Article 50 letter Tuesday night.

"The PM has signed the letter which will trigger Article 50 tomorrow, starting negotiations for the UK to leave the EU," May's office said.

It will be delivered to the European Council in Brussels at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday local time (6:30 a.m. Wednesday ET), NBC News' British partner ITV News reported.

Voters in June approved a referendum to leave the European Union. Invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty formally starts that process. Talks could last up to two years.

British voters chose in June to leave by 52 percent against 48 percent voting to remain. May is expected to make a statement Wednesday in which she will pledge: "It is my fierce determination to get the right deal for every single person in this country," ITV reported.

"For, as we face the opportunities ahead of us on this momentous journey, our shared values, interests and ambitions can, and must, bring us together," she is expected to say.

Immigration was a leading concern among those who chose to leave, especially among blue-collar workers. The United Kingdom never was a part of the euro currency zone nor the border-free Schengen zone that allows travel without a passport.

May, who came to power after the referendum result prompted the resignation of her predecessor David Cameron, said earlier this year that she will seek a so-called "hard Brexit." That means the U.K. would quit the EU completely and also withdraw from the single market for goods.

Invoking Article 50 sets Britain down a path of no return. The process cannot be reversed or abandoned without the unanimous agreement of newly-antagonized EU states.

Also Tuesday, Scotland's parliament approved a bid to hold a new independence referendum in 2018 or 2019, in part over Brexit, but the British government rejected the proposal.

Last week, the British government set the date for the invoking of Article 50 for Wednesday. The minister in charge of Brexit negotiations, David Davis, at the time called the upcoming talks "the most important negotiation for this country for a generation."

"The Government is clear in its aims: a deal that works for every nation and region of the UK and indeed for all of Europe — a new, positive partnership between the UK and our friends and allies in the European Union," he said.

It is now official and final despite all the efforts to stop it, BREXIT is not wet to unfold commencing 29th March 2017 in the very year that the EU celebrates it's 60th year.  BREXIT IS NOW SET TO BECOME REALITY in perfect alignment with God's Purpose and Prophecy.

For Bible Students this is a very exciting development in fulfilling Bible Prophecy.  In fact it is the greatest sign of the nearness of Christ's Return since the Establishment of the Jewish State in 1948!

Over 3000 years ago Bible Prophecy laid out the alignment of nations at the time of the end and Britain was not to be part of the European Union.

So despite what any man may think or say what we have just witnessed here is what Daniel said in Daniel 4:17 "This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will..."

Just as the angels of God were at work ensuring that Britain had one of the strongest voter turn outs in years and voted for the conservatives to return to UK Government in May 2015, without which an EU referendum would not have happened.  So the angels of God ensured the British People Voted for BREXIT in June 2016 despite what all the polls predicted?

And now we continue to see that despite any and all opposition, the current leaders of Britain are continuing to pursue BREXIT.  So we continue to see the hand of God at work in the nations to ensure that His purpose unfolds on the earth.  Britain will leave the EU of this we can be certain as this is a matter of Bible Prophecy.  In the Bible, God has long said (2,500 yrs ago to be exact) that Britain will not be a part of the European Union when Russia and the EU invade the Middle East.
