London will be attacked…I shall be in command of the defences of London
and…it will fall to me to save the Capital and save the Empire.’

Over the past few posts we have been exploring the prophesy Great-Grandpapa spoke of to a school friend at Harrow. In CHURCHILL: “I avow my faith” – Part 3 – “I shall be in command of the defences of London”, I highlighted the widely accepted distinction between predictions and prophesy.

Looking more closely at the second part of the prediction: “I shall be in command of the defences of London”, I drew your attention to the improbability that firstly Churchill, without intervention, could not have accurately predict that he would be “in command of the defences of London,” at a time of war. And secondly, with his dismal political record, he would be the most unlikely person the world would have turned to for leadership in a crisis.

“It will fall to me to save the Capital and save the Empire”

As with the initial part of Churchill’s prediction, “London will be attacked,” a skeptic can again claim the second part, “I shall be in command of the defences of London,” as a very lucky guess. However, Wallace and I maintain that while one may dismiss the first part as luck, the second as improbability and/or luck, the third and final part of Churchill’s prophesy: “It will fall to me to save the Capital and save the Empire” cannot be written-off so easily.

Murland de Grasse Evans was stunned to hear his chum speak with such confidence of an impossible to foresee future. Had they not been friends, Evans might have dismissed Churchill as arrogant, but, as he states in his letter to Churchill’s son Randolph, ‘Like others at Harrow, I was greatly attracted by this extraordinary boy. His commanding intelligence, his assurance, his bravery, charm and indifference to ugly surroundings.’ Murland recalled how Great-Grandpapa began to warm to his subject, and although he was unable to state with clarity the exact career path he would follow, he was clear that he knew where he would end up: “I have dreams about it.”

With great confidence, clearly not false, Churchill assured Murland that he would “save the Capital and the save the Empire.” Even if one writes-off the first and second parts of his prophesy as luck, one cannot dismiss the impossibility of the accuracy of this final claim. In ‘God and Churchill’, we certainly draw attention to the fact that Great-Grandpapa desperately craved the attention of his parents, and one might be forgiven for assuming that this was yet another plea for fulfillment. However, history confirms that Churchill was right in 1891.

On May 8, 1940, Winston Churchill was asked by King George VI, to lead Britain through the remaining years of the Second World War. ‘My warnings over the last six years had been so numerous, so detailed, and were now so terribly vindicated.’

On September 7, 1940, as Great-Grandpapa had predicted in 1891, London became a battlefield as squadrons of the Luftwaffe dropped bombs on the innocent population below. Churchill was resolute: “Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.”

“It will fall to me to save the Capital and save the Empire.” – On May 8, 1945, 54-years after his prediction, Winston Churchill stepped out onto the balcony of the Ministry of Health building in London on VE-Day to the cheers of thousands of men, women and children who were lining the streets throughout London.

“London will be attacked…I will be in command of the defences of London…It will fall to me to save the Capital and save the Empire.” – Churchill’s prophesy came true exactly as he stated it. Religions around the world consider that prophesy can only come from God. Therefore, Churchill had to be right in his own belief that ‘without the assistance of that High Power which interferes in the eternal sequence of causes and effects more than we are always prone to admit, I [Churchill], could never succeed.’

Great-Grandpapa was the most unpopular man in Britain with little credibility abroad. He did not seek the office he filled, but was asked to serve. Without the interference of that ‘High Power’ Great-Grandpapa referred to, Churchill could never have risen to save Britain and the world from the evils of Hitler and his Nazis.  Further evidence of this comes when one flips the coin and considers the result had Churchill actually been both a successful and popular politician.
