Greece, Just a Fleshwound?

The past few days I’ve been seeing an increasing buzz in the news that some leaders might be amenable to letting Greece out the the Eurozone, and allowing it to re-establish it’s own currency.  I’m really not buying though at this point, since even if Greece leaves the EU it will still have billions in euro denominated debt to pay back. It will also set the precedent, which to this date has not existed in any of the EU treaties for departure from the Union. I suggest that this talk of letting Greece out of its commitments to the EU is another smokescreen. My guess is that the “technocrats” of the EU will begin drafting up a terms sheet for letting Greece out of the EU- and that terms sheet will be so incredibly onerous that no one in their right minds would be able to accept it.

Now I see the further news today:

KOTOK: We Have Bigger Worries Than Greece, Portugal and Spain

The EU may be able to survive the failure of the Greek economy, but I am quite certain that system cannot possibly survive the failure of Portugal, Spain, and Italy in quick succession. As I’ve said before, I believe we have a “mortal wound” in the making, plenty of candidates for horns to be uprooted. Doesn’t anyone else find it interesting that in all the talk these days about failing economies, it has centered on these four that all happen to be on the list of the WEU Ten?

Update by Justasheep

I’ve gotten a couple emails that pointed to this verse:

 and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived.
(Revelation 13:14 ESV)

If we are presuming that the first beast is the kingdom of the antichrist, the revived roman empire, which I do, then the text tells us it was wounded “by the sword”.  As has been pointed out this is interpreted in many places as a reference to war or military force.  I have a tendency to speculate then, that the economic distress, and impending collapse of the eurozone economy is not necessarily the whole wound, but that it is a catalyst to war (whether it be some sort of external attack, a european civil war or insurrection, I don’t know) that will further harm the EU and necessitate the emergence of a strong leader to “bring it back to life” and “perform a miracle” of reviving the collapsing EU.

Any thoughts or comments out there on this, and likely scenarios or rumors of war?

  1. Great comments Rob!

    I echo your remarks wholeheartedly. As we stay focused on the “potential” fulfillment of Prophecy that is before us, it amazes me that the initial revelation of the WEU Ten has never truly disappeared – as it appears as if they have been absorbed into the EU Beast – thus making a way to provide a platform for the coming Antichrist. (Revelation 17:12-13)

    “12) And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast. 13) These are of one mind, and they hand over their power and authority to the beast.”

    When we see evidence such as you have posted….it really makes my heart and spirit just ever more ready to know that the Return of Christ is near.

    Thank you, and others for your calling – and service to the Lord.

  2. Greece cannot leave the European union in Daniels Gabriel tells Daniel te vision of te end time and Greece will be there

    Daniel 8:15-19 (KJV)
    And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. [16] And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. [17] So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.

    [18] Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright.

    [19] And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be .

    [20] The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia
    [21] And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.

    [22] Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.

  3. Greece is the home of Alexander the great, one of the greatest generals that ever lived.

    Greece is part of the 4 winds.
    Babylon
    Medo-Persia
    Greece

  4. I had always seen the four winds as referring to the the 4 generals, the diadochi, that rose up after Alexander (the Ptolemies, Seleucids, Pergamon and Macedonia) but I suppose I could be wrong. I agree with you, I think it’s very unlikely that Greece would be allowed to leave the EU, but I am saying that more for political/economic reasons than because of a strong certainty from prophetic verses above.

  5. Hi

    The 4 winds where prophesied way before alexander or his 4 generals.

    Keep in mind that Greece is one of the 4 winds and that will automatically make them a core EU members or one of the 10. This is the political side of it. Greece leader made the mistake of dealing heavily with Goldman Sachs and less with the EU. They are being severely punish. IMO. On the Economic side this goes for all the EU states. Keep these verse in mind when it comes to the money.

    Revelation 17:12-13 (KJV)
    And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

    13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

    These nations must have one mind which means they must have one political and economic system. Banking, finances. Currency, Govement,

    Which will lead us to this

    Revelation 13:16-17 (KJV)
    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:

    17] 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.

    It says he causes all to receiver a mark to buy or sell.

    We can have a pocket full of dollars. Euros, yen or yuan. If you have not the mark a currency or gold is useles.

    This is where the EU is headed along with the world.

  6. I dont think Greece will leave the EU but they might either get kicked out of the Eurozone or leave it but that will make things worse for them.
