Coil preparation for Wendelstein 7-X in Greifswald, German (Bernd vdB)
A German technological development may have just shocked the world:
A little over a year ago, Germany turned on the world’s largest nuclear fusion reactor and faced sharp speculation over whether the machine could function as intended. Now, tests conducted by US and German researchers confirm that the experimental Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) stellarator is indeed producing magnetic fields that make controlled nuclear reactions possible, and with a high degree of accuracy and incredibly low error rate. With these test results, new confidence and hope are spreading through the renewable energy industry, as nuclear fusion could be the key to ending fossil fuel dependence worldwide. …
The research team found that W7-X is generating magnetic fields just the way its design intended: strong, twisted, and 3D. “To our knowledge, this is an unprecedented accuracy, both in terms of the as-built engineering of a fusion device, as well as in the measurement of magnetic topology,” the researchers wrote in a report. Combined with an error rate less than one in 100,000, the tests conclude the W7-X stellarator has made history. It could become the first power plant on Earth to use little more than saltwater to create a safe, clean, long-lasting source of energy for generations to come. 12/08/16 http://inhabitat.com/germanys-massive-nuclear-fusion-reactor-is-actually-working/
A fusion reactor capable of producing limitless clean energy is up and running in Germany.
The Wendelstein W7-X fusion energy device known as a stellarator produced its first batch of hydrogen plasma when it was started earlier this year.
The device essentially works like a star in a jar, harnessing the near infinite power of the sun. Since then scientists have been monitoring the device and recording readings, according to a study in the journal Nature Communications.
Once the technology is viable it could be incorporated into power plants across global cities allowing Earth to run on limitless clean energy indefinitely.
The W7-X is the world’s largest stellarator and is currently operated by Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Germany. http://www.9news.com.au/world/2016/12/10/11/27/german-scientists-create-a-star-in-a-jar#Y50u41721tCrKV7a.99
The largest and most sophisticated stellarator in the world, Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X), has just started operation, with the aim to show that the earlier weaknesses of this concept have been addressed successfully, and that the intrinsic advantages of the concept persist, also at plasma parameters approaching those of a future fusion power plant. Here we show the first physics results, obtained before plasma operation: that the carefully tailored topology of nested magnetic surfaces needed for good confinement is realized, and that the measured deviations are smaller than one part in 100,000. This is a significant step forward in stellarator research, since it shows that the complicated and delicate magnetic topology can be created and verified with the required accuracy.
Fusion has the potential to cover the energy needs of the world’s population into the distant future. (Nature Communications7, Article number: 13493, 2016 http://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms13493)
A year ago, I reported about some of the potential this could have (see German helium fusion stellarator may help propel Europe to dominate the world).
It is even clearer now that this has massive economic potential.
Could it have military potential as well?
Well, notice the following listed under author affiliations in the actual published study:

Furthermore, realize that hydrogen nuclear bombs are a type of fusion reaction:

So, yes there seems to be military potential with Germany’s project.
Would Germany ever consider developing its own nuclear capability?
A reader sent me a link to the following last night:
9 December 2016
The issue is so secret that it isn’t even listed on any daily agenda at NATO headquarters. … The discussion surrounds nuclear deterrent. …
In European capitals, officials have been contemplating the possibility of a European nuclear deterrent since Trump’s election. The hurdles — military, political and international law — are massive and there are no concrete intentions or plans. Still, French diplomats in Brussels have already been discussing the issue with their counterparts from other member states …
“It’s good that this is finally being discussed,” says Jan Techau, director of the Holbrooke Forum at the American Academy in Berlin. “The question of Europe’s future nuclear defense is the elephant in the room in the European security debate. If the United States’ nuclear security guarantee disappears, then it will be important to clarify who will protect us in the future. And how do we prevent ourselves from becoming blackmailable over the nuclear issue in the future?”
An essay in the November issue of Foreign Affairs argues that if Trump seriously questions the American guarantees, Berlin will have to consider establishing a European nuclear deterrent on the basis of the French and British capabilities. Germany’s respected Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, meanwhile, even contemplated the “unthinkable” in an editorial: a German bomb. …
In an interview that gained attention internationally in mid-November, Roderich Kiesewetter, the chairman for the conservative Christian Democrats on the Foreign Policy Committee in German parliament proposed a French-British nuclear shield in the event Trump calls into question American protection for Europe. “The US nuclear shield and nuclear security guarantees are imperative for Europe,” he told Reuters. “If the United States no longer wants to provide this guarantee, Europe still needs nuclear protection for deterrent purposes.” …
Wolfgang Mischnick, parliamentary floor leader of the Free Democratic Party, which shared power with Kohl’s Christian Democrats at the time, publicly clarified what that meant during a session of the Bundestag on February 20, 1974: “It is still possible to develop a European nuclear power,” he said.
Forty years later the issue is actually now being raised for the first time. http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/europe-responds-to-trump-win-with-nuclear-deterrent-debate-a-1125186.html#ref=nl-international
Germany is now contemplating the “unthinkable’ because of Donald Trump. Europe is now publicly stating what some of us were pretty sure some leaders believed. Things will change with Europe. The stellarator may be part of the reason.
The Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump has became turning points for Europe to move to develop its own military. It was the UK that often would veto an actual European army. But with the UK planning on negotiating its exit from the EU this March because of the Brexit vote (see UK Parliament approves BREXIT talks to start with Europe in March 2017), the restraining influence of the UK is mainly gone.
The British exit from the EU, combined with the use of Donald Trump as a type of scapegoat by some European leaders, is emboldening many who have wanted to see Europe dominate the West.
The Bible foretells the time of a great army (Daniel 11:25) and military power (Revelation 13:1-10) in Europe. The Bible also shows that it will have vast economic power and cause many to prosper (Revelation 18). Many in Europe in general, and Germany in particular, are working towards that goal, despite biblical warnings of being part of it (e.g. Revelation 18:4).
Is it possible that Germany could be considering weapons as powerful or even more so than thermonuclear bombs?
This project could greatly assist Europe and reduce its dependency of Islamic sources for fuel. It also has massive military potential.
Germany used deuterium in WWII when it was trying to develop its own atomic weapons. The USA, with the help of German-born scientists, was able to do this first. But for WWIII, the Germans seem to be ahead (see also World War III: Steps in Progress).
Since the warring and prosperous Beast of Revelation 13 will be European (check out Europa, the Beast, and Revelation and also watch the YouTube video Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?), I have long felt that technology would be the key to Europe’s prophesied military successes (Daniel 11:39-43) as well as a reason that it will eventually be crushed by a Eurasian power (cf. Daniel 11:44-45; Jeremiah 50:41-43).
Could the ramifications of the fusion reactor actually propel Europe to rise up?
One of the biggest problems that Europe has is its need for energy and its dependence on Russia as well as Islamic sources for energy. If instead of having to buy energy from Russia and the Middle East Europe generates its own power (and sells some of it), then Europe will have more money available to grow its own economy as well as support more militaristic ambitions.
Notice what the Bible says about the European Beast’s military ability:
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)
Notice that the military power of the Beast was something that the world will marvel, be astonished about.
Because despite fascination with war (Daniel 11:38), no one truly thought that the European Beast power had the military ability to defeat the U.S.A. with its Anglo-allies (Daniel 11:39; see also USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses), 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.
That Beast power will be European (for more biblical details, watch Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?).
Technology seems to be the key to a powerful European military. One aspect could also include particle collider research. The number of colliders in the U.S.A. has dwindled down to one under the Obama and Bush Administrations, and the remaining one is facing budget cuts and possible closure (Matson J. Nuclear Decelerator: Last U.S. Particle Collider is on Chopping Block. Scientific American, August 24, 2012). Yet, in Europe, it now has the leading one in the world, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and Germany announced that it is planning a possibly even more advanced one called FAIR (FAIR stands for the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) (JCW. Go-ahead for €1.6 billion particle accelerator. The Local, June 13, 2012). The FAIR project is in process of construction.
I have long believed that Germany’s FAIR, along with the LHC and other technology, will help the Europeans produce military weaponry to fulfill certain end time prophecies. Since Revelation 13:4 is discussing what seems to be a unique type of warfare, this warfare likely includes certain high-tech weapons (such as electromagnetic pulse, neutron bombs, unique delivery systems, etc.) that will be effective for a while. The FAIR and the LHC projects are also likely to spin-off economic benefits that may help propel Europe to be (for a short while) the economic leader of the world (cf. Revelation 18).
Ultimately, the Europeans will be overcome by what appears to be a Russian-led, mainly Asian, confederation, cf. Jeremiah 50:41-43 & Daniel 11:44, possibly by exploiting some technological flaw, like creating a software virus, etc., while also amassing troops, etc.
The European Space Agency and other European programs related to technology like Horizon 2020 are expected to bear fruit to the economic and military power of Europe several years from now (Horizon 2020: The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. European Commission. http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en). Many projects are ongoing that will assist Europe.
The possible breakthrough with stellarator fusion is one of several that can potentially propel the final rise of the coming power in Europe.
Europe is concerned about Russian aggression and the USA’s direction. Europe is moving forward with its space and military plans and few in the USA seem to realize that when it gets enough power, the USA will lose all of its. Specifically notice that the Bible shows that this King of the North will destroy those who are perceived to have the strongest military might and apparently divide up their land:
39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain (Daniel 11:39).
The “he” above is referring to a European leader called the King of the North in that chapter (Daniel 11:40) and the Beast from the sea in Revelation 13:1-10). The strongest fortresses in the world belong to the USA and to a much lessor extent, its English-speaking allies (for a more detailed explanation of why the USA and its Anglo-allies are involved, as well as the dividing of their lands, please see Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel). This passage about the “strongest fortresses” in Daniel 11:39 cannot be referring to the continental Europeans as they support the King of the North, nor can it be referring to the Russians, Chinese, or other Asians as they do not get involved until verse 44 (see also The Eurasian Union, the Kings of the East, and Bible Prophecy).
In the 21st century, it must be a reference to the USA.
While the U.S.A., Australia, and others are currently worried mostly about China, the European developments will not be good for the Anglo-Saxon descended lands, including England.
Consider something from the Old Testament:
19 For the Lord brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel, for he had encouraged moral decline in Judah and had been continually unfaithful to the Lord. (2 Chronicles 28:19)
Might leaders like those in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand who seem to be encouraging biblically-moral declines cause their nations to be brought low?
The total destruction of the nation of the United States of America and its Anglo-Saxon descended allies is coming.
These lands needs national repentance to delay their coming destruction (cf. Daniel 4:27). Pray (1 Timothy 2:1-3; Matthew 6:9-13; Luke 21:36; Colossians 4:2).
The Europeans are rising up and technology, as I have long written, will be one of the keys to enable it to do so.
Despise not prophecies (1 Thessalonians 5:21).
The world order is changing, European technology is rising, and the USA will not be able to remain on top indefinitely.
Some wish to believe otherwise, but the USA’s rising debt and moral decline will help insure that.
Europe is rising and the plasma-fusion project is part of the proof that Europe intends to use technology to rise up.
