The debt crisis in Europe just seems to get worse with each passing day, and it is yet another glaring example of why the EU is a mind blowing failure. The EU is made up of 27 nations that all have their own economic policies, and 17 of those nations are trying to use the euro as a common currency. But when you have 27 different governments pulling in different directions, it is inevitable that there are going to be major problems. The stunt that Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou just pulled is a perfect example of the nightmare that the EU has become. European officials worked really hard to pull together a deal to address the debt crisis (of course the deal was a total mess, but that is another matter), and a couple of days later Papandreou decides that Greece should hold a national referendum on it. It is so bizarre that it almost defies words. But that is what happens in the EU. Someone else always wants to have a say. Someone else always wants to throw a fly into the ointment. Someone else always want to throw in their two cents. The EU is a bureaucratic nightmare and this latest episode is yet another example of that fact. First the politicians in Europe come up with an idiotic plan that is going to make the financial crisis much worse, then Papandreou comes forward and pulls a stunt that shatters what little confidence the financial markets still had in Greece. That is why the EU should break up. It is a total failure and it is time that we all admitted it. (Read More….)
Oh, how wonderful it is to have the Bible to show us what is happening in our day and age. The Revived Roman Empire is in chaos and divided.
Here are some Scriptures that I have put in a chronological order as I think things will progress from here on.
First, we saw the rise of the EU beast with the 10 nation WEU at its core. The division in the EU is clear.
Dan 2:41-43 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
As stated by the article, it looks like the EU is about to die as if it has a deadly wound. Remember, a head is a mountain or empire/kingdom and a horn is a king in Bible symbolism. (Rev 17) So the head that is seemingly dying is the EU.
Rev 13:3-4 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
Now comes the little horn. On its way to power it plucks up three of the 10 horns/kings/countries. Is he the one who will cure the EU from its deadly wound and by doing so take control of the kingdom?
Dan 7:7-8 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
And is this the way the cure will be implemented?
Rev 13:16-17 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Friends, if we are so close to the end as I think we are, we may soon see these Scriptures fulfilled before our eyes. Israel will soon be divided and it looks like the EU is suffering from a deadly wound. Is this the appointed time for these prophecies to be fulfilled? Well, we are still in the time-frame of the only confirmed 7 year covenant with many between Israel and the EU. We can not fall asleep now!
