Wales is a very sad country today for its place in the United Kingdom has been undermined by the flag of St. David not being included in the Union Jack. Instead Wales chooses a flag of a defeated dragon, a dragon symbolising a Druidic past rather than its great Christian revivals of the 1700’s and early twentieth century.
Revivalist Evan Roberts thought it strange that a country with a Christian heritage should have as its symbol a dragon that the Bible declares to be Satan. It is time to bring life back to Wales, a nation famous for its missionaries going all over the World as a result of great revivals.
Revelation 12:9 (King James Version)
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Away from the defeated symbol
As I was burdened for Wales and prayed for the success of the kingdom of God and battled against the forces of darkness I was burdened by the necessity of removing the dragon from being the emblem of our country. As the religion of Wales is based on the Holy Scriptures and because the red dragon in the scriptures is a symbol of the devil is it not scriptural to remove it? When the devil sees his symbol on the flag of a Christian country that professes to hate him it is a source of joy to him. Is there not a cry in the hearts of thousands of followers of the Lamb in Wales against this inconsistency between theirprofession and their emblem?
1905 Revivalist Evan Roberts
To be a full member of a Protestant United Kingdom Wales must put aside its pagan emblem and take an enthusiastic role in the United Kingdom Protestant nation moving away from its reliance on Brussels in its new founded Assembly and coming back to playing a full part in the United Kingdom Parliament.
The alliance with England began in 1284 with the Statute of Rhuddlan which placed lands in Wales under the control of what would be the British Crown. Rhuddlan Castle from where this proclamation was given was one of a ring of castles built by Edward I to suppress Welsh objection to the activity. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statute_of_Rhuddlan
The Laws in Wales Acts 1535-1542 went further than the 1284 statute in that they brought the legal systems of Wales in line with that of England, the single jurisdiction being called the legal system of England and Wales.
The two main acts passed were those of 1536 and 1543 under Henry VIII who was part of the Welsh Tudor Dynasty. The effects of the acts were as follows:
- the marcher lordships were abolished as political units and five new counties (Monmouthshire, Brecknockshire, Radnorshire, Montgomeryshire and Denbighshire) were established, thus creating a Wales of 13 counties;
- other areas of the lordships were annexed to Shropshire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Glamorgan, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Cardiganshire and Merionethshire
- the borders of Wales were established and have remained the same since; this was unintentional as Wales was to be incorporated fully into England, but the status of Monmouthshire was still ambiguous until 1974;
- the courts of the marcher lordships lost the power to try serious criminal cases;
- the office of Justice of the Peace was introduced;
- Wales elected members to the English (Westminster) Parliament;
- the Council of Wales and the Marches was established on a legal basis;
- the Court of Great Sessions were established, a system peculiar to Wales;
- a Sheriff was appointed in every county, and other county officers as in England. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laws_in_Wales_Acts_1535%E2%80%931542
The result of this was that Wales fully became part of the British Protestant Constitutional heritage, Wales’s apparent semi independence today placing its people under the bondage of the Treaty of Rome rather than the freedom of Great Britain’s constitutional acts.
