Emmanuel Macron receives Charlemagne Prize for European unity in Aachen

10 May 2018

French President Emmanuel Macron received the Charlemagne Prize in Aachen “in recognition of his vision of a new Europe.” In his acceptance speech, Macron spelt out his long-term goals for the European bloc.
French President Emmanuel Macron was recognized for his contributions to European cohesion and integration on Thursday, as he received the Charlemagne Prize in the German city of Aachen.

In his acceptance speech, Macron praised the European project for maintaining a “miraculous” 70 years of peace on the continent and outlined the his vision for the future.

The French president called for more unity among member states and warned that the divisions that appeared during the eurozone and migrant crisis risked undermining the EU project.  …

Macron also called for a stronger Europe on the diplomatic front. “Europe has to take its fate into its own hands,” the French president said. “Because one country breaks its promise doesn’t mean we have to change our course,” he added, implicitly referring to the US’ decision to quit the Iran nuclear deal.

“If we let others decide our policies for us, then we are not creditable anymore, and our populations will not be seen creditable either.”

The Board of Directors for the Charlemagne Prize said they were honoring Macron “in recognition of his vision of a new Europe” and his “decisive stance” against nationalism and isolationism.

The bishop of Aachen, Helmut Dieser, opened the ceremony in Aachen’s Cathedral, congratulating Macron for winning last year’s French presidential election on a pro-European platform. “We therefore offer you all our respect and gratitude,” the bishop said.

The annual Charlemagne prize commends public figures who promote European unity. It is named after the founder of the Holy Roman Empire, who launched a series of wars and political reforms to build a continental European empire. Charlemagne was crowned at Aachen in the year 800.

Merkel Says Europe Can’t Count on U.S. Military Umbrella Anymore

May 10, 2018

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Europe can no longer count on the U.S. for military protection and must “take its destiny into its own hands.”

Merkel’s comments on Thursday reprise a theme she first sounded last year in response to U.S. President Donald Trump’s “America First” foreign policy and his hectoring of European NATO allies for allegedly spending too little on defense. It’s her latest retort to Trump, who this week withdrew the U.S. from a nuclear accord with Iran that European powers say they will uphold.

“It’s no longer the case that the United States will simply just protect us,” Merkel said to applause in a speech honoring French President Emmanuel Macron, who sat behind her at a prize ceremony in Aachen, Germany. “Rather, Europe needs to take its fate into its own hands. That’s the task for the future.”

So, Europeans are applauding more unity and not relying on the USA for its defense.

Now notice something related to Europe and President Macron from last Fall:

September 26, 2017

Macron is going all-in on European integration in a speech today.

  • A group dedicated to the “re-foundation of Europe” to launch in the coming weeks
  • Why not gives ourselves the aim to fully integrate French and German markets by 2024 and harmonize respective laws
  • Calls for single European military
  • Eurozone needs its own budget to finance joint investments and ensure stability against economic shocks
  • Wants to re-launch European financial transaction tax plan
  • Wants to gradually create European border police

This speech has been continuing for more than an hour. He’s at Sorbonne University in Paris.

He’s basically calling for a full-scale United States of Europe.

We in the CCOG have always expected a type of United States of Europe. Now President Macron got an award for advocating for it. And today he subtlety advocated that Europe develop a stronger military to make Europe more “creditable.” And Angela Merkel’s comments are consistent with that.

The type of unity that President Macron has promoted, and the type of military Europe will get, will not end well for Europe (Revelation 17:12-14; Daniel 11:44-45). Europe needs the Kingdom of God (consider also watching the video Millennial Utopia).

The Charlemagne Prize is essentially a European-Catholic award. It is awarded annually by the German city of Aachen for “contributions to European unity.” Charlemagne, himself, was the first one crowned emperor of the old ‘Holy Roman Empire’ (800 A.D.).

The Bible tells of a Babylonian unity between Europe and the church of the city of seven-hills in Revelation 17:1-9,18.

Although that relationship will end (Revelation 17:15-16), the Bible tells of a religious leader who is instrumental in promoting the final European Beast of the sea in Revelation 13. That Beast is a warring power:

1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. 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 13:4)

Notice that a warring power is to arise. Now consider that the sea reference is to the Mediterranean Sea (Daniel 7:2-8; Numbers 34:6-7; Joshua 1:4; 9:1; 23:4; Ezekiel 47:13-16). Despite some false claims by some, the Beast power is not a nation like Russia, which does not border the Mediterranean Sea, but Europe which does (Russia, however, will be a factor in eliminating the European beast power, see also The Eurasian Union, the Kings of the East, and Bible Prophecy). A comparison of the beasts in Revelation 13 and Daniel 7 shows that they share many of the same characteristics and shows this is NOT Russia (for some details, you may wish to watch the YouTube video Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?).

Any relationship to Charlemagne?

Consider some of what the old Worldwide Church of God reported about Charlemagne:

New King Pepin dies in 768. His sons Charles (Karl) and Carloman jointly succeed to the Frankish throne.

In 771, Carloman dies suddenly, and Charles becomes sole king of the Franks.

Though only 29 years old, Charles is an imposing figure. He literally exudes power and authority!

Charles is 7 feet tall — well over a foot above average height — and robust. He is stately and dignified in bearing, but is known for his warm-heartedness and charity. He speaks a type of Old High German.

But most important, he is a zealous and dedicated Catholic Christian!

Now in undisputed possession of the Frankish throne, Charles directs his efforts against the enemies of his kingdom. His great goal is to reestablish the political unity that had existed in Europe before the invasions of the fifth century.

He first launches a campaign against the fierce Saxons, who are threatening his frontiers. The Saxons are the last great pagan German nation. During the next three decades, Charles will wage 18 campaigns in his costly and bitter struggle against the stubborn Saxons. In 804 they will finally be Christianized at the point of the sword and incorporated into his empire.

Charles also undertakes campaigns against the Bavarians, Avars, Slavs, Bretons, Arabs and numerous other peoples. During his long career, he will conduct 53 expeditions and war against 12 different nations! And in the process he will unite by conquest nearly all the lands of Western Europe into one political unit. (Stump K. THE HISTORY OF EUROPE & THE CHURCH Part Four CHARLEMAGNE AND THE NEW EUROPE. Plain Truth, October 1983)

Charlemagne brought unity through war and the threat of war–that is similar to what the Beast of Revelation will do as well! Charlemagne was at least partially Germanic and French as likely will be that Beast (cf. Isaiah 10:5-14; see also Might German Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg become the King of the North? and Germany in Biblical and Catholic Prophecy).

Despite the views of some, France will, at least for a time, support the coming Beast power (see The ‘Lost Tribe’ of Reuben: France in Prophecy? A two-part sermon related to history and prophecy is available online: The ‘Lost Tribe’ of Reuben and France and Prophecy)–and the French President is inadvertently doing that now.

What will happen in Europe will be a Babylonian unity that one day will be destroyed:

4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7 In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day — death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her. (Revelation 18:4-8)

Despite warnings about this in the Bible in places such as the 17th and 18th chapter of the Book of Revelation, many European leaders continue to promote something that the Bible warns against (see also German call for a ‘United States of Europe’ in five years).

The Bible shows that Europe will reorganize and end up with a strong leader:

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)

Many do not understand about this reorganization. But you can, see Must the Ten Kings of Revelation 17:12 Rule over Ten Currently Existing Nations?

The Bible also shows that Europe will have problems getting along:

41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. (Daniel 2:41-43)

And we see a mixture in Europe. Europe is fulfilling biblical prophecies. But notice from both the Old and New Testaments that Europe is NOT destined to bring in a real utopia, but that the coming united European power will be eliminated by God:

44 And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. (Daniel 2:44)

14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful. (Revelation 17:14)

The Bible warns that nearly all on the earth in the final end times will be deceived (2 Thessalonian 2:9-12) and fall for it (Revelation 13:8). Have the ‘love of the truth’ so that you will not fall for this as more and more are coming to believe that European and other worldly unity is the key to peace.

Human efforts to do this apart from the true God WILL FAIL!

Europe giving out the Charlemagne Prize will not change that. But its goal of European unity and dominance, will happen. Though the results will be temporary (Daniel 2:41-44; Revelation 17:12-14)–and the good news is that it will be replaced by the coming Kingdom of God.
