Raising Our Nation

Listening to the news over the last few days I feel compelled to put my thoughts to paper when the question was asked, 'Why has this happened in our nation?' regarding the riots that have been sweeping through some of our major cities.
I want to share a little story with you; in 2007 I had what I will only describe as a 'heavenly encounter.' Following this I felt something stirring me to write a book. To be honest the idea seemed ludicrous but eventually after several other visits to this ‘heavenly place’ I finally took the plunge and last year I eventually got the book, ‘On Earth As it is in Heaven’ published.  
What has that got to do with anything you might ask? Well I believe someone breathed on this book and unfolded some events that have now recently come to pass. I have to be honest I feel quite sad. Our Great British nation is now almost on its knees, it seems to have lost all sense of what is valuable, so why should we expect anything less from our youth? The people in power have not exactly set a good example to them have they?
Many people in our nation had such high hopes for a better future.
The banks were lending money left right and centre and sadly our so 'politically correct county' soon became consumed with greed. And who has this greed affected really badly? Those who are now so desperately in need! Many parents are being forced to work long hours for very little pay, consequently leaving their children free to do as they please; roaming the streets, forming gangs and generally getting into trouble. Sadly the support these children so desperately needed from their parents is now only available from each other. This has formed a crack in the family infrastructure and to cut a long story short, what happens to little cracks? They get bigger and bigger, until eventually something breaks.
Our nation is at breaking point! Yes it started with the banks becoming consumed with greed. This greed they tried to feed to those so desperately in need to have so much more than they ever had before.
So what kind of message has this sent to our children, what is our nation feeding them now?
Amongst many I hope you will agree, that the main ones would probably be, that if it was OK for the banks to rob our nation and that if it was OK for our politicians to steal via their expenses, then if we want to rob and steal why shouldn't we?  
As the book predicted in 2007 these revelations, are being revealed each day, 'the little crack that went unnoticed, has suddenly caused our country to almost crack up! We have all been well and truly sucked in!
 So what is the answer?
 I believe it is in the story, and as it proved to me,
'One touch from Heaven is all it takes to change your life’
As you ponder this thought I would like to leave you with another insight from the book: -
Carry on with your wicked schemes and you will pay.' 
So as the world carries on will you please pray?
Because as it is said; - ‘He who sits on the throne will spread His tent over them. Never again will they hunger, never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. For the lamb at the centre of the throne will be their shepherd. He will lead them to the springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’                      Revelations 7:15-17
