TARSHISH – Britain being prepared to fulfil Bible Prophecy!
There are only handful of prophecies in the Bible that remain unfulfilled. Chief among them are those that promise the visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth to set up the Kingdom of God. One prophecy that is of utmost interest is found in Ezekiel 38, which follows hard on the heels of another of Ezekiel’s famous prophecies – the latter-day revival of the nation of Israel – in chapter 37. Ezekiel 38 focuses on the events that occur immediately before the actual physical return of Jesus Christ to the earth (which is a topic all of its own, of course). This is where the recent events in the UK and Europe come in. who is Tarshish? And what does this have to do with ‘Brexit’?
Many other prophecies help provide an outline of who the Tarshish referred to in the Bible is. For the sake of ease, here is a bullet point summary of its characteristics as outlined in Bible prophecy: A nation built on the spirit of the merchant city of Tyre (Isaiah 23v6, Ezekiel 38v13) Of Japhetic (European) origin (Genesis 10v4) Rich in silver, iron, tin and lead (Ezekiel 27v12) A major maritime power (Isaiah 2v16) Actively trading in global markets (Ezekiel 27v25; 38v13) From maritime lands (“isles”) far away (Isaiah 66v19)
To the far west of Israel (Jonah 1v3) A God-fearing nation (Isaiah 51v5; 60v9) In short – remember, this is just a summary – the key descriptors of Tarshish point unmistakably to the lands of Britain. It is not uncommon knowledge that Britain has throughout history referred to herself as “the old lion” and her colonies as “the young lions” (just Google the phrase “the empire needs men” to find a famous poster Britain distributed during WW1). It is a curious thing that this matches the exact phrase Ezekiel used thousands and thousands of years ago, when describing “Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof”. Furthermore, another prophecy – this time found in Isaiah 60 – provides an outline of some events that occur after the return of Jesus Christ to the earth and the defeat of the Russian-European power.
Unsurprisingly, this also refers to Tarshish: here we are told that this nation, along with Sheba and Dedan (remember them?) will be involved in helping return Israelites to their land (Isaiah 60v11). So what does this all mean? And what does this have to do with Brexit? In short, the passages above help explain two things: not only did many students of the Bible expect Britain to eventually stand aside from Europe, but that in fact we – unlike most of the planet – are actually excited this has occurred. But why on earth are we excited? Surely, given all the evidence, the consequences of ‘Brexit’ are going to be catastrophic! What is there to be excited about? And herein lies a critical point: No true worshipper of God or follower of Jesus Christ should rejoice in another’s sufferings. That is not what we are about. That is not ‘the Gospel’. There is and can be only ONE reason we are excited: because these events are amongst the very final things to occur before the Bible prophesies the actual, physical return of Jesus Christ to the earth, to set up His Kingdom.
