Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg
Notice the following:
German defense minister seeks more European military cooperationDeutsche Welle – Dec 9, 2010Ahead of a defense ministers’ meeting in Brussels, the German defense minister says he supports more European military cooperation. In a time of austerity, resources should be shared, said Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg.
German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg said he is willing for Germany’s military to share some of its duties with other armies in Europe…
“The commitment to European defense must be more than just lip service,” Guttenberg said in the article. “By intensifying our military cooperation, we will all benefit in the end.” http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,,6311329,00.html
It likely will be that “in the end” Germany will believe that it has benefited by this–although when Jesus returns, He will have a different take on this.
Of course, we in the Living Church of God have long taught that a unified army led by “strongman” would ultimately arise in Europe. And this will be fulfilled by a single leader, known as the Beast in Revelation 13 & 17 and the final King of the North in Daniel 11. The Bible shows that the other leaders in Europe will give their power to him (Revelation 17:12-14) and that he will lead a military machine that will cause the rest of the world to marvel at (Revelation 13:3-4).
Germany Should “Use” Military Force. Speaking at a recent security conference in Berlin, German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg urged Germany to “be prepared to use its military to defend the country’s economic interests.” Baron Guttenberg noted that the competing demands of nations today for raw materials made it imperative that Germany—a nation whose export-driven economy is heavily dependent upon imported raw materials—should be prepared to use its military forces to secure trade routes for raw materials and exported goods. While his political opponents were quick to challenge these strong statements as contrary to the German constitution, the Defense Minister saw his position as only logical (Der Spiegel, November 10, 2010). Bible prophecies have long foretold the re-emergence of Germany (modern Assyria) as a major player on the world scene (see Isaiah 10:5-14). The words and actions of this popular German Defense Minister, who is also a lawyer and of Habsburg lineage, will be interesting to watch.
A now highly popular politician, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg may yet have a fall or two in popularity. But he also seems to be a rising star in Germany. If his stardom rises throughout Europe, he certainly has the potential to be a major influential leader there.
As regular readers of this page are aware, I have had my eye on Karl Guttenberg since late 2009. And he may be one to watch to rise up as the final “King of the North”.
As I wrote before, if Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg is part of a major Middle East peace deal, if he establishes armies (or a great army), and if he establishes something like a new religious order within his version of the “Catholic” faith, he likely will get more people’s attention–and even more of mine. This move to increase military cooperation among the European nations is consistent with my written prediction that he may establish great armies (or a great army) some time ago. Thus, he is a person of interest.
On the other hand, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg could simply be a rising politician, like many others. And all his intentions could be fine. We will see. But Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg does seem, to me at least, to be taking the types of steps that one who could possibly be the final King of the North would actually take.
