CHURCHILL: “I avow my faith” Parts 1 through 4, offered an in-depth analysis of Great-Grandpapa’s prophesy in 1891. Although demonstrated that luck could only circumstantially lay claim to the first part of the prophesy; “London will be attacked,” it could not be credited further. “I will be in command of the defences of London” and “It will fall to me to save the Capital and save the Empire,” are two elements that can only be explained if Churchill were either a clairvoyant, which he wasn’t. Or, Providence, Destiny, or the “High Power” Churchill spoke of actually did interfere as Great-Grandpapa maintained, “in the eternal sequence of causes and effects.”
Wallace and I were convinced that the elements I have highlighted could only have come from God. However, we recognize that there will still be some skeptics among us, and for that purpose, I offer the alternative: What if Churchill had either been a successful and popular politician, or had never been born? Where would we be today and what would the world look like?
Before we erase Great-Grandpapa from history, I wish to establish that I am not changing anything apart from his role in history. Nothing Churchill did prior to the Second World War was ever decisive enough to dramatically change events as we know them today. Therefore, let us start on the journey first erasing Churchill’s life completely.
The Allied Powers won the First World War in 1918. On June 28, 1919, the Treaty of Versailles was signed and enormous financial reparation demands were place on Germany. Land was seized, factories and industry taken over by foreign powers and in a matter of months, Germany was brought to her knees. In 1933, forced into a corner and in a desperate situation, the German people welcomed the advent of Adolf Hitler, a German Corporal, wounded in the First World War, who promised them a new Germanic Empire, a Reich that would last for a thousand years. The starving and despondent German people overlooked this zealous anti-Semite, who pointed to the Jews and Communists and claimed they were responsible for Germany’s hardships. With no condemnation from any of the other European nations, Hitler began to round Jews up, take their businesses and homes and segregate them in ghettos.
Over the following six years, with British spies ferociously reporting back to London, Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin and then Neville Chamberlain ignored the facts that Hitler was fast rearming Germany despite the restrictions of the Treaty of Versailles. No word of warning was given in the British Parliament, and in 1935, unbeknownst to the British people and their European allies, Germany was now equal with Britain in air power. Baldwin continued the policy of disarming Britain, as did the other European nations, as per the agreement reached in 1919 for a unified peace in Europe. In 1936, Germany over took Britain and France in military strength.
In 1937, Stanley Baldwin retired as Prime Minister and Neville Chamberlain succeeded him. Chamberlain was aware of the increasing danger and flew to Germany in 1938 to seek terms of peace with a leader whose country by now dominated Europe in military strength. On his return, Chamberlain waved his famous document guaranteeing peace in our time. Sadly, that peace was to last less than a year.
On September 1, 1939, Hitler marched unopposed into Poland and Britain did nothing. On September 3, 1939, his hand forced by his Cabinet, Chamberlain declared war on Germany. There would have been no reason for Chamberlain to resign in 1940, as soon as the Nazis had finished with France, Britain under Chamberlain would have easily succumb. Hitler would then have swept through Europe, overtaking Russia and then Italy, his next target would be the United States. A full European force would board every ship and plane available and a direct attack on America would begin. Unprepared and ill-equipped, President Roosevelt would have no doubt mustered together a force to hold Hitler at bay for a while, but it is unlikely that with a full European force and the British Empire in Hitler’s hands, America would stand for long. It is pointless to speculate on the Asian continent, but with Australia, North America, South America, Africa and Europe under the Nazi thumb, it is likely that Germany would have an issue dominating the world.
During the 1930s, Winston Churchill was the lone voice warning of the ever-increasing threat of Hitler and the Nazis. It was because of him that Prime Minister Baldwin was forced to begin rearming Britain. It was because of him that attention was paid to Hitler and his Germany, and in 1940, Winston Churchill was the ONLY person in Britain who was willing and able to lead the desperate and unprepared Britain.
“We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the new world, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.”
If Winston Churchill had been a popular politician, he would have probably have served in the MacDonald/Baldwin coalition when Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. He would have no doubt remained in the cabinet during the Baldwin administration. As such, he would have been an avid supporter of appeasement when Chamberlain succeeded Baldwin as Prime Minister. Finally, on September 1, 1939 Churchill would have woken with the rest of the world, war would be on the doorstep, and history would have tarred him also with those terrible words, “too late.”
History has shown us that the loss of Winston Churchill either before or during the Second World War would almost definitely have led to defeat. Providence, or that “High Power” Great-Grandpapa spoke of, was kind enough to keep Churchill away from mainstream politics at all the significant moments that lead up to the Second World War. He was on the backbenches of Parliament throughout the 1930s and remained there until the outbreak of war on September 3, 1939.
‘My warnings over the last six years had been so numerous, so detailed, and were now so terribly vindicated, that no one could gainsay me.’ He recalled from the night of his appointment as Prime Minister. ‘I could not be reproached either for making the war or with want of preparation for it. I thought I knew a good deal about it all, and I was sure I should not fail. Therefore, although impatient for the morning, I slept soundly and had no need for cheering dreams. Facts are better than dreams.’
It is our contention that the evidence supports Churchill’s own belief that ‘without the assistance of that High Power [God], which interferes in the eternal sequence of causes and effects more than we are always prone to admit, I [Churchill], could never succeed.’

What Churchill himself professed to believe about God, the Bible, Moses and Jesus
