1630 Depiction of Beasts of Daniel 7
Will civil unrest result in the Beast rising up?
Dalio Fears Social Unrest That Led to Hitler’s RiseCNBC – Sept 21, 2012
Ray Dalio, founder and co-chief investment officer of the world’s largest hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates, thinks it’s likely the euro will survive; however, he does predict a “10 to 15 year managed depression” in Southern Europe. In a worst case scenario, he painted a much darker picture.
“For example, Hitler came to power in 1933, which was the depth of the Great Depression, because of the social tension between the factions. So I think it very much is dependent on how the people work this through together and worry about the social elements.” http://www.cnbc.com/id/49117901
The above is not really occurring in a vacuum. European leaders have already called for a strong leader to lead Europe (see EU Ministers Beginning to Advocate for a ‘King of the North’ Leader). But what is intriguing about Ray Dalio’s comments is that they are consistent to ones that I have made here at COGwriter as well as in two of my books.
Notice, for one example, what is shown on page 121 of my latest book, Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States (bolding added here for emphasis):
The Bible shows that the Beast will have special help from “unclean spirits” (Revelation 16:13) and will be considered to be unconquerable (Revelation 13:4).
Notice what the Bible says about this:
3…And all the world marveled and followed the beast. 4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:3-4, NKJV)
Notice that the military power of the Beast was something that the world will marvel, be astonished about. Why? Because no one really thought that the European Beast power had the military ability to defeat the U.S.A. with its Anglo-allies (Daniel 11:39), and then the Islamic King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43). Revelation 13:3-4 also supports the idea that the Beast may rise up because of violent civil unrest in Europe.
Even though the Bible says this Beast individual comes through “fraud” (Daniel 11:21, Douay-Rheims), “intrigue” (Daniel 11:21, NKJV) or through “flatteries” (Daniel 11:21, Young’s Literal Translation), this seems to be more of a description that he is not considered to have been a foreign conqueror as opposed to being a true man of peace. Violence is likely to be a factor in his rising up as the Bible shows he will be a warring leader (Daniel 11:39-43; Revelation 13:4). The final Beast power of Daniel 7, who is also the final Beast of the sea of Revelation 13 and King of the North of Daniel 11, is shown to be one given to violence. And, he will be worse than Adolph Hitler, though apparently share some of his traits.
The Bible, in Revelation 17, is clear that the Europeans will reorganize in the future and given more of their power to a central authority:
12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. (Revelation 17:12-13)
It is likely to be for reasons of economic and military that government leaders will give power and authority to this Beast.
More and more we are hearing statements and seeing news items that are consistent with Bible prophecy. Steps towards the rise of this Beast power are happening as we of the Philadelphia remnant of the Church of God have long taught. And yes, there will be bumps in the road and problems, but Europe will always have unity issues per Daniel 2:41-43).
According to Bible prophecy, a European power, despite its fragility, is destined to temporarily be the most dominant force in the world. And ultimately, its leader, the final King of the North, will conquer the Anglo-descended nations (Daniel 11:39), and later come to his end (Daniel 11:45). And this leader may well rise up partially because of violent civil unrest in various parts of Europe.
