In addition to this, Chapel Pentecost hereby points out that due to the obligation upon the present Queen to maintain the laws of God, it is thereby obvious that such apparent laws that have been passed by Parliament and given the Royal signature that are not matching up to the principles and guidelines given by God in His Word such as the Abortion Act of 1967, then of course the Act is not legal, and so it is to be the role of this Chapel Pentecost to point out such unbiblical actions and bring the nation before God in repentance for its sinful actions.
Statement on the British Constitution
Whilst Chapel Pentecost firmly argues that Christ Jesus himself is the Head of the Church; Col. 1:18. The Chapel Pentecost fully understands that as the Act of Supremacy 1534 itself points out, that when the Act refers to the Monarch as the supreme Head of the Church of England, the comment itself is relating to earth, and indeed Scotland due to the Act of Union. It is accepted in the act the Lordship of Jesus Christ for the act itself places obligation on the Monarch to visit, repress, reform, order, correct, restrain and amend error, heresy, abuses, offences, contempts and enormities; these actions being in line with gaining the pleasure of Almighty God and the increase in virtue of Christ’s religion, this being linked with the conservation of the peace, unity and tranquillity of the realm.
The Chapel Pentecost also accepts that when Constitutional acts refer to “England” the points raised apply to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland also due to each respective Act of Union.
It is, therefore, perfectly legal for Chapel Pentecost as subjects of the Monarch to take action in line with this Act and so Chapel Pentecost will continue to correct error as directed by God and this will involve removing the widespread acceptance of immoral acts like abortion and homosexuality.
The Coronation Oath Act of 1689 refers to the statutes, laws and customs of the British Realm. The God given role of the Chapel Pentecost in this respect is merely to point out this serious obligation before God.
The Chapel Pentecost believes that this obligation has to be understood as referring to the Christian root of our nation, the statutes, laws and customs, therefore to be legal need to have their foundations in the Word of God. This is clearly established in the Act for the Archbishop of Bishop asks the forthcoming Monarch at his or her coronation whether he or she solemnly promises to govern according to the statutes in Parliament agreed upon, and the laws and customs of the same following this by a promise to cause law and justice to be executed in judgements, and thus following this by a promise to maintain the laws of God, the true profession of the gospel and the Protestant Reformed religion.
The Chapel Pentecost acknowledges and understands that within modern day cultures such obligations are seen as being “politically incorrect”.
The Chapel Pentecost in reply to such objections simply points out that political correctness has been written down and political correctness simply means being in line with British Constitutional values that have been established in God’s Word.
The Chapel Pentecost fully accepts and understands the obligation on the Monarch not to have communion with the Church of Rome, profess the Popish religion or marry a Papist; Act of Settlement 1700.
Whilst it is not the desire of the Chapel Pentecost to restrict or suppress lawful activities of the Roman Catholic Church, it is the decision of the Chapel Pentecost to bring a full understanding of the obligations of the Monarch to defend the Protestant Reformed faith and that this does mean that the Royal Family must be fully Protestant. It is understood from the work of Chris Richards of the Protestant Alliance that the act refers to succession to the throne coming through the Protestant Hanoverian line.
Despite of contemporary thinking, the Monarch according to constitutional acts has to be Protestant and a Defender of that faith. This is entirely in line with the obligations of the 1689 Coronation Oath Act, these obligations making it impossible for anyone but a Protestant to fulfil those obligations, in the same way that the obligations placed on the Pope could not be fulfilled by a Protestant and so it is the presentation of the Chapel Pentecost that the Act is not at all discriminatory, but simply keeps the nation back on track to its original heart and vision for without that vision, the people will perish including those of other persuasions; Proverbs 29:18.
As regards to the current social conditions in Britain: this is the position of the Chapel Pentecost.
In the Chapel Pentecost the unchanging Word of God will take priority over changing social conditions.
The Unchanging Word of God is the answer for the whole of humanity and instead of bowing down to the four horns that are polluting the World and the “Church”the Chapel Pentecost will expose the activities of the “horns” and offer a lifeline to the people.
Zechariah 1:18-21 King James Version (KJV)
Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these?
And he answered me,
These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.And the Lord shewed me four carpenters.
Then said I, What come these to do?
And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.
The Chapel Pentecost accepts this is a prophetic utterance through Zechariah seeing the social conditions today as being the same that scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem.
With the power of the Holy Ghost the Chapel Pentecost will counteract the activities of these “horns” which are as follows:
I. The Spirit of Intellectualism, Humanism
and Pride in Man’s Achievements.
This sees everything in black and white, reasoning everything to a logical conclusion, man being the superior being and the mind as the source of all knowledge.
Apostle John Wesley The devil has given to the Church a substitute for faith which looks and sounds so much like faith some people can't tell the difference = MENTAL ASSENT.
Within this understanding there is a development of an over-stressed society for man is incapable of finding out truth which only comes through Jesus Christ and sothe Chapel Pentecost will hold out a hand to an over stressed society to receive freedom through the blood of our Precious Saviour.
II. The Spirit of Anti-Christ
1 John 4:3 King James Version (KJV)
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world..
We live in a questioning society that is denying Biblical truth replacing this truth with a series of ideologies that result in men suffering torment in this life and eternal punishment in hell.
“New translations” contribute to this confusion with their Gnostic perspectives and so it is recognised by the Chapel Pentecost that we need a programme of God to counter-act Anti-Christ activity both in what is known as “Church” and in society as a whole.
III. The Spirit of Immorality
Within the present social conditions this spirit has been having a hey–day for society and “Church” has moved away from Biblical truth.
Romans 1:25-27 King James Version (KJV)
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
This is a road to destruction and the Chapel Pentecost will portray the only way to salvation.
John 14:6 King James Version (KJV)
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
IV. The Spirit of Lust or Materialism
1 Timothy 6:9-10 King James Version (KJV)
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
This spirit creates a society intent on creating wealth for itself developing an uncontrollable desire to get more.
It is in the areas of sexual lust, love of money and intellectualism that families are being destroyed, and even today there are those in the “Church” who are discouraged with the conditions that have been brought about through the activities of the four “horns”.

The Solution ….
Zechariah 4:6-7 King James Version (KJV)
Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying,
Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.
Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
Present day “Zerubabbels” operating in the offices of Prophet and Apostle will move in this power and it is the policy of
the Chapel Pentecost to bring the conditions for these offices to manifest in the strength of the Lord.
