LCG: Britain, Falkland Islands, and Argentina

Palace of Westminster in London


In today’s TW News & Prophecy, LCG reported:

Britain and the Falkland Islands.

Following President Obama’s visit to Britain and his encouraging rhetoric that “Britain is America’s closest ally,” this week “Washington signed on to a draft declaration on the question of the Malvinas Islands [Falkland Islands] passed by unanimous consent by the General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) at its meeting in San Salvador. In doing so, the United States sided not only with Buenos Aires, but also with a number of anti-American regimes including Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela and Daniel Ortega’s Nicaragua.”U.S. support for this resolution is not new. In 2010 U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton held a joint press conference with her Argentine counterpart, calling for negotiations over the islands to commence. All this has happened while the U.S. is fully aware that its “closest ally” does not consider negotiation an issue of discussion (The Telegraph, June 8, 2011).

What neither London nor Washington understand is that Bible prophecies foretold the fate of the Falkland Islands and other sea gates previously controlled by the U.S. and Britain. God promised Abraham that his descendants would “possess the gate of their enemies” (Genesis 22:17). At one time, the U.S. and Britain “possessed” virtually all the major world sea gates. However, God warned the Israelites, “if you do not obey the voice of the Lord… your enemy shall distress you at all your gates” (Deuteronomy 28:15, 55) and that the “glory” of Ephraim “shall fly away like a bird” (Hosea 9:11). Today, as these nations turn further away from God, only the Falklands and Gibraltar remain–and these, too, will likely go. Sadly, the glory of Britain is fading, along with her once vast, God-given empire.

The Argentinians and British have different views on what should be done according to something in the news earlier today:

Britain a ‘crude colonial power in decline’, says Argentina’s president Cristina Kirchner

Britain is a “crude colonial power in decline”, according to Cristina Kirchner, who criticised David Cameron for remarks he made about the Falkland Islands.

Basically the British Prime Minister stated that as long as those in the Falkland Islands wished to be part of the UK, they should be allowed to be.  The President of Argentina does not see it that way.

The Falkland Islands are one of the last sea gates (Gilbraltar is the other) that the UK still has.  Many decades ago, the late Herbert W. Armstrong warned that he felt that the major sea gates would be taken from the USA and the UK.

Ultimately, when the UK is no more, I suspect that Argentina will end up with the Falklands unless Britain feels pressured so much before that to give it away itself.
