_ What is this all we hear about a soon-coming "world political authority"?
Even the Pope in Rome has recently called for one! As we know, the world is on the verge of a new and even deeper, more dangerous recession (BBCNews.com, October 31, 2011). Meanwhile, Germany is growing increasingly frustrated with the European debt debacle and the Vatican is calling for “a world political authority" to end mankind's woes...
How will you be affected by such a plan? And---more importantlyu yet---how do these events align with end-time prophecy?
The Holy Scriptures predict that, at the time of the end, ten kings would temporarily give their power and authority in an uneasy alliance to the “King of
the North” (Daniel 2:41-43; Revelation 17:12-13)! The result of this union will be a
German-dominated European economic, military and religious superpower.
However, even though it will reign for a short time, it will not be friendly to the United States, England nor France. Furthermore, it will oppose Yahwshua Ha Mashiach at His triumphant return (Daniel 2:44; Revelation 17:14)!
A worsening global financial outlook, increasing European economic turmoil, growing German political frustration and economic prominence—as
well as the Vatican’s recent proposal calling for a powerful “world
political authority” that “would have international governance on arms
control, migration, food security, and environmental protection” (Washington Post, October 24, 2011)—are significant steps toward fulfilling these prophecies!
Notice what the Kehilah of Yahwshua warned, and published more than 40 years ago, through one of its leaders: “Scripture prophecy clearly indicates that Great Britain will not be one of the infamous ten nations comprising the final United States of Europe.” Instead, Torah prophecy shows that the coming
United States of Europe—referred to in common Biblical language as the
“beast” of Revelation 13 and 17—will have strong religious (in fact, nominally “christian”) connections. And sitting astride a United Europe will be a great Church or Church system—prophesied two thousand years ago (see Rev. 17)!
After the European Union exceeded ten member states, not few scoffed at
these prophecies. But, even now, there are increasing calls for changes to the European Union treaty. Increasingly, the departure from the union of countries such as Sweden, Britain, Denmark and others, and a smaller European Union is being discussed (Financial Times, October 30, 2011).
But who will lead Europe? China---having been successfully cornered out of many european investments---plays it cool and grudgingly says Europe must solve its own economic woes (Reuters.com, October 31, 2011). So, which European nation has the economic strength and will to lead Europe out of this economic mess?
Notice that it has been Germany who has become Europe’s “paymaster.” It is Germany who says that those European states who borrowed recklessly are now “being punished” and “must learn discipline” (BBCNews.uk, October 11, 2011)!
The Scriptures foretell of an ecumenically sanctionedGerman-led Europe at the end of this human age! Even proud France, now at risk of having its credit downgraded (The Guardian,
October 24, 2011), is beginning to realize that it is Germany who is
increasingly in control! This is why French President Sarkozy was
forced to cancel plans, “after a brief visit to the Paris maternity
clinic where his wife was giving birth to their first baby” in order to
fly to Germany for “an emergency meeting” to discuss economic disagreements with Angela Merkel (Financial Times, October 19, 2011). Not surprisingly, the German position prevailed. Indeed, the borrower is servant to the lender (Proverbs 22:7)!
England will not be part of the final ten kings! And, France will not
lead end-time Europe! Prophecies such as Hosea 5:5-9, Hosea 7:11-12,
Ezekiel 34:22-24 and 1 Thessalonians 5:3 reveal that England and France,
along with the United States and other modern nations descended from
ancient Israel, will “stumble together” and will briefly become the
“prey” of the nations immediately before Yahwshua's return. And the
predominant end-time empire will be German-led, Roman-backed and European.
Yahweh desires repentance from all people (Mark 1:15) and that the
entire house of Israel may be saved (Romans 10:1). Instead, the modern
Israelitish nations continuously do not submit to the righteousness of Yahweh (Romans 10:3), but “turn to other gods.” So, sadly, a time of
correction is coming (Deuteronomy 31:18) their way---and all the world's way! Be wathful of the fig-tree, dear brethren, for time is short!
