Europe Concerned About USA ‘Fiscal Cliff’ and Some Are Trying to Give More Financial Power to Central Authority–A Prelude to 666?
European Central Bank, Frankfurt (Eric Chan)
Europeans are getting more concerned about the economic viability of the USA (bolding mine):
Now it’s Europe’s turn to worry about U.S. economy.
American officials have been wringing their hands for the past two years about the heavy burden of government debt piling up in Europe. On Tuesday, Europe’s Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development warned that the U.S. “fiscal cliff” threatens prospects for the eurozone’s economic recovery.
“We’re talking here about the medium and long-term viability of the United States economy,” OECD Secretary General Angel Gurria told CNBC. “Not only to avoid the fiscal cliff but then get to a moment where (U.S.) debt stops rising and the debt to GDP starts coming down to an area where we call all breathe more comfortably.”…
Congress and the White House have been deadlocked on solutions since the law was enacted after a bitter battle in July 2011 over increasing the government’s legal borrowing authority. Though President Barack Obama and Republican leaders have made conciliatory comments since the November election, there has been little in the way of concessions needed to reach a compromise. http://www.nbcnews.com/business/economywatch/europe-sees-us-debt-crisis-dire-its-own-1C7275560
What people in the USA do not realize is that the fiasco of what is happening in Washington, D.C. is encouraging the Europeans and others to realize that the end of US dollar hegemony must come. Notice also the part I bolded above. The Europeans are questioning the long-term viability of the United States! And they should as the debts, etc. that the USA has been accumulating will lead to disaster beyond what most imagine (cf. Habakkuk 2:6-8).
Because of their concerns, goals, and other factors, the Europeans are considering giving more power to the European Central Bank (ECB):
ECB Lays Out Timetable for Single Euro-Area Bank Supervision
The European Central Bank said it expects to assume full supervision of all euro-area banks by the start of 2014 and that there is no need to change the law to accommodate its new role.
ECB wants “executioner” to terminate Europe’s weak banksECB outlines wide supervisory role, at odds with Germany
Though there are some issues with various countries, including Germany, the Europeans plan to have a more centralized multinational economy that has the ability to overtake the USA–and this will happen according to Bible prophecy.
Recently, the EU’s President Herman Van Rompuy announced a banking supervisor for the Euro-zone (see Van Rompuy Announces Euro-Zone ‘Banking Supervisor’). The other steps that the ECB is taking are consistent with not only that, but with the idea that there will be central authority over the economy of all of Europe. This is setting the stage to fulfill biblical prophecies such as the following:
16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (Revelation 13:16-18)
10…’Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’
11 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. 14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance 18 and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’ (Revelation 18:10-18)
The Europeans want the United Kingdom to get on board with their plans or get out.
Britain should vote on leaving EU, Italian prime minister Mario Monti saysDavid Cameron should ask the British people if they want to stay in the European Union, Italy’s prime minister has said. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/eu/9705711/Britain-should-vote-on-leaving-EU-Italian-prime-minister-Mario-Monti-says.html
For a time, the European Beast power will be the world’s major economic ‘666’ power per Revelation 13 and 18. The United Kingdom is in a tough spot, but if thinks that relying on Europe will help it in the long-run, it will find that this will be a mistake (cf. Hosea 7:11-14).
Alliances and political discussions (like trying to resolve the ‘fiscal cliff’) will not solve the problems of the USA, UK, or their Anglo-allies. National repentance is what is needed and that is not on the agenda of most politicians.
Europe has a plan and keeps implementing parts of it. Most in the Anglo-lands still do not see it, but as Europe sees what is happening in the USA and UK, it is more determined to speed up its plans of being the dominant economic power in the world. It is getting much closer to being able to that than most people think.

It also provides information on 666 and the identity of “the false prophet”. Plus it shows that several Catholic writers seem to warn about an ecumenical antipope that will support heresy.
