Britain’s Ostracization, Euro-geddon, & China-geddon

Europa Woman Riding the Beast Coin
Greek 2 Euro Coin Shows Europa Riding the Beast

Many in Europe are expressing discontent with Britain because its views on handling the Eurozone crisis:

Following David Cameron’s veto of EU treaty reform, there is plenty of frustration in Europe over Britain’s stubborn attitude in the battle against the debt crisis. Prominent members of the European Parliament have strongly criticized the British prime minister and sent him a clear message: Europe doesn’t need you…

“It was a mistake to admit the British into the European Union,” said Alexander Graf Lambsdorff, a prominent German MEP with the business-friendly Free Democrats, and vice chair of ALDE, the liberal block in the European Parliament. The UK must now renegotiate its relationship with the EU, he said. “Either they do it by themselves, or the EU will be founded anew — without Great Britain,” Lambsdorff said.  http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/0,1518,802823,00.html

The European Union on Thursday night dropped the hypocrisy. No longer is harmony the overriding goal. That, though, means that Great Britain may no longer have a place at the table. London must decide whether it wants to remain part of Europe or not…

The European Union has divided itself in the face of crisis. On the one side is the common currency union, which is following the Franco-German desire to grow together as a way to finally get the euro crisis under control.  On the other side is the United Kingdom, standing petulantly alone, no longer wanting to play. http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/0,1518,802728,00.html

Of course, Hungary was not particularly supportive of the plan, but that seems to be overlooked for various reasons, including the fact that the EU leadership probably believes that Hungary would be able to be persuaded better than the United Kingdom could be.  We in the Living Church of God (including prior to LCG’s actual formation) have long taught that the UK would not be part of the final power that has been developing in Europe:

Interestingly, the Bible indicates that Britain will NOT be part of this final Roman system. Even now, there are misgivings among the British leadership and among the population at large about the approach to a complete union with Europe. (Meredith RC. Is the “Beast” Awakening? Tomorrow’s World Magazine, September-October, 2000, p. 8 )

The English-speaking nations will not prosper for long in connection with this system, however. In fact, they will ultimately be overpowered and destroyed by it militarily. Prior to military attack and occupation, devastating weather problems, combined with internal civil strife (“tumults in the midst” cf. Amos 3:9) will bring our nations to the point of internal collapse. (Ogywn J. The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy. LCG Booklet, Charlotte (NC)).

Ephraim (modern Great Britain) will not be part of the “Beast” power, so we can expect some significant change that will push the British out of the EU. (Davis. D. Ireland says “No!” to EU power grab. LCG Commentary, July, 1 2008)

Perhaps it should be mentioned that the general position within the Churches of God is that Britain will not remain in the EU and will pull out at some point. (Thiel B. Tony Blair a Catholic EU Leader? Church of God News, June 26, 2007. http://www.cogwriter.com/news/prophecy/tony-blair-a-catholic-eu-leader/)

It should be understood that ultimately, Britain will NOT thrive as part of the EU but will be taken over by the final European Beast power–yet its former Prime Minister is promoting something that will not help the peoples of the UK. (Thiel B. Tony Blair Calls for a Strong, Elected, EU President Church of God News, June 9, 2007. http://www.cogwriter.com/news/prophecy/tony-blair-calls-for-a-strong-elected-eu-president/)

Bible prophecy clearly shows that Britain will not be one of the TEN NATIONS comprising the final United States of Europe (McNair R. A Strong United Europe. Tomorrow’s World, February 1970, p. 17).

These recent news items are supportive of our views here.  The United Kingdom, as is, will not be part of the ten kingdoms (individual nations and/or groups of nations) that will give their power to the Beast in Revelation 17 (the UK’s power will ultimately be taken away).

Some have indicated that what is going on in the Eurozone now “Eurogeddon” and that civil unrest may occur:

War-gaming for ‘eurogeddon’

What if the leaders gathering in Brussels fail to agree a deal? There are emergency plans being laid in the UK and across the EU about how government, but they are secret.  http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/newsnight/9658250.stm

EU leaders roll the dice as eurogeddon looms
Sydney Morning Herald – Dec 10, 2011…

If the euro is preserved and Europe moves towards a more unified future, Dr Merkel will probably win the lion’s share of the credit, perhaps one day being hailed as Europe’s saviour.  But if her prescriptions turn out to be inadequate, she could reap the blame for presiding over the collapse of the euro, with untold consequences for the world economy.  http://www.smh.com.au/world/eu-leaders-roll-the-dice-as-eurogeddon-looms-20111209-1onq8.html

Euro crisis: US General Martin Dempsey warns of unrest

BBC – Dec 9, 2011 excerpts…

The top US military commander, Gen Martin Dempsey, says he is concerned about “the potential for civil unrest” as Europe’s financial crisis unfolds.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-16122887

I have been warning for a couple of years now that Europe will face civil unrest.  This may include riots and even something resembling a civil war.  But according to the Bible, despite its fragility (Daniel 2:41-43), it will reorganize (Revelation 17:12-13) and become the dominant Beast power at the end, for a while (Revelation 13:3-4).  It will also eliminate the strongest fortresses  (Daniel 11:39), which at this time, appears to be the military might of the USA and its Anglo-allies like Great Britain.

Europe, oddly, proudly displays its ties to an immodest woman riding a beast.  The Greek 2 Euro coin (shown at the start of this post) features an immodest woman, who is supposed to represent the nymph Europa (from whom Europe got its name) riding a beast. And while that story comes from Greek mythology, the Bible mentions the following related to Europe:

3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. 5 And on her forehead a name was written:

MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.

7 But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. 8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

9 “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits…18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. (Revelation 17:3-9,18)

Most theological scholars, including Catholic ones, believe that the city of seven mountains (hills in some translations) represent Rome.

The fact that not only on the Greek coin, but also in front of the EU Council of Ministers Office in Brussels, Belgium there is a large statue of an immodest female Europa on a beast shows that the European Union is not ashamed of its potential ties to these scriptures. Years ago, a Larry Blake sent me several pictures of the woman (Europa) riding the bull (a beast) as symbols of European Union which are linked for additional proof of these ties.

Because the Bible indicates that Europe, and not China, will be the major power at the end, years ago, Dr. Meredith of the Living Church of God wrote:

Many publications have suggested that the 21st century will be “China’s century.” Even though the Chinese are fiercely moving forward, and their progress in developing their industries is obvious, these publications are dead wrong for two reasons. First, the inspired word of God describes specifically how a coming European Union will be the dominant force in this world—obviously within the next several years. Therefore, brethren, I would like to focus your mind on this matter so you can more intelligently “watch” world events along this line as they unfold before your very eyes. In the coming years, you will perhaps even see a revolt of the peasants in the outlying Chinese cities, who have lagged far behind the standard of living afforded those who have moved to Beijing and Shanghai. Plus, the tremendous pollution of the water, air and foodstuffs may bring about massive disease epidemics and other problems for the Chinese.

In addition, distracting wars and other events may— as God chooses to guide it—greatly undermine the material progress now being made by the Chinese. Meanwhile, you will soon see the European Union evolve into an absolutely powerful and dynamic force in the world— ultimately to become the “Beast” as revealed in Revelation 17 in your own Bible!

So the 21st century will not be the “Chinese century!” Rather it will appear to become the European century for a few years, until the magnificent return of Jesus Christ as King of kings and Lord of lords. From then on, the 21st century will be, indeed, “Christ’s century!” And all of us who are able to understand the “Big Picture” of world events from God’s point of view should be preparing to help straighten out the appalling degree of suffering, starvation and misconduct we find on this earth today in virtually every nation (Meredith R.C. An Inspiring and Successful Trip. Living Church News. May-June 2007, p. 21).

Why mention that now?

Notice the following news item:

China-geddon: A China crash will be scarier than Europe

Say you’re at a railway station, waiting for the slow train to eurogeddon. You’ve been told that the eurozone is in deep trouble with all those piles of debt, that it will fall apart inevitably, dismembering the euro and inflicting pain and misery around the world…And then, before you can say PIIGS, a monstrously big train steams in from the other direction on the same track – and knocks you down flat.

That train, which no one saw coming at all, is the high-speed rail to China-geddon: an economic hard landing scenario in China that will be just as ruinous as anything that’s happening in Europe…

  • China’s economy, contrary to claims that it grew by 9.1 percent, is actually in recession, and contracting by perhaps as much as 10 percent.
  • China’s inflation rate, again contrary to government statistics putting it at 6.2 percent, is close to 16 percent.

China may also have major civil unrest.  And while it will play a major role in the end time, the 21st century will NOT belong to China.  China is having problems, but relatively few have noticed them.  When more, in China really do, watch out.

Much is happening right now to align with the prophetic views that we in the Living Church of God hold.

As Jesus said, “Watch” (Mark 13:37).
