Karl-Theodor Guttenberg working in secret?

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg (World Economic Forum)


Former German Defense Minister, Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg made the news today for being secretive.  The following was basically machine-translated (I do not speak German) from Der Speigel:

Hamburg – For a while, he was not without pomp, and Spotlight once posed Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg as a movie star in New York’s Times Square. Then the ex-defense minister went to visit the troops in Afghanistan in combat and in Tarnmontur scene. Later a guest appearance on “Wetten, dass.”.

Rarely did the CSU politician from a chance for self-promotion, as he could not {thrive} without publicity. The motto of the former public relations strategy: the large Guttenberg show. Even as he was because of the plagiarism scandal forced to resign for his doctoral thesis, Guttenberg shortly thereafter tried in the media whitewash, published a discussion group called “For the time being failed” – and hinted at a political comeback. Sometime later.But for some time it has been quiet around Guttenberg . No press releases, no more speeches, no show stunts. A year ago, he was {appointed by} the EU Vice Commissioner Neelie Kroes, the EU commissioner for Internet freedom. What {does} Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg {do} as Internet representative of the European Commission?

The answer from Guttenberg’s office falls to very short, he worked with on the “No Disconnect Strategy” of the EU Commission. This strategy is the worldwide Internet censorship to be fought. His own description of the job are, however, not as that of an ordinary authorities consultant, but as a man who must work in secret.

His “understanding of the activities of an independent consultant is to discreetly and without publicity to act as efficiently as possible in the background,” tells his office. This command and the “sensitivity of the matter” and the “protection of persons involved.” Should read: his job requires secrecy.  http://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/karl-theodor-zu-guttenberg-will-diskreter-werden-a-874329.html

Why could this be of prophetic interest?

Bible prophecy warns about a leader who was rejected and seemingly comes out of nowhere who will rise up and lead Europe per Daniel 11:21-44. One verse to focus on is verse 21. Here are four translations of it from Catholic and Protestant sources:

21 And there shall stand up in his place one despised, and the kingly honour shall not be given him: and he shall come privately, and shall obtain the kingdom by fraud. (Daniel 11:21, Douay-Rheims)

21 “‘His place will be taken by a reject, a man spurned and passed over for advancement. He’ll surprise everyone, seemingly coming out of nowhere, and will seize the kingdom. (Daniel 11:21 from THE MESSAGE: The Bible in Contemporary Language © 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson. All rights reserved.)

21 And in his place shall stand up a contemptible person, to whom they had not given the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by flatteries. (Daniel 11:21, ASV)

21 ‘And stood up on his station hath a despicable one, and they have not given unto him the honour of the kingdom, and he hath come in quietly, and hath strengthened the kingdom by flatteries. (Daniel 11:21, Young’s Literal Translation)

As regular readers know, I have wondered if former German Defense Minister Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg was a candidate to possibly be the final King of the North of Daniel 11 and Beast of Revelation. The fact that he has had problems, is out of the limelight, and has been rejected by various ones is consistent with biblical and other predictions.  He has confirmed  seven speculative predictions after I posted them (for details see Might German Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg become the King of the North?).  It should be understood that just because he fulfilled various predictions does not prove that he must be the final King of the North. But they certainly give me reason, combined with biblical and other prophetic sources to consider that he could fulfill that role or at least aid the one who will have it.

So, he remains one to watch.

Of course, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg could simply be a somewhat politician with many ups and downs. And all his intentions could be fine, despite him being repeatedly insulted. We will see.

While others may question whether or not a European leader could be the final King of the North, looking at various scriptures demonstrates that he will lead Europe and not Russia as some have insisted (see for example, Is Russia the King of the North? ), Europe keeps making the news for its difficult attempts at integration (which is consistent with Daniel 2:41-43) and becoming a military power (Revelation 13:1-4).  Related to the military power, notice the following, that came out a week ago:

Britain will be expected to plan national defence with the rest of the European Union after David Cameron agreed to accelerate joint military operations.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/9746517/David-Cameron-signs-up-to-more-joint-military-operations-with-Europe.html

The above article further states that the Europeans have agreed to more military cooperation and some believe that this will lead to a European army–and Europe will have its own army (currently it mainly has a collection of many national armies).  Consistent with biblical prophecy (Revelation 13:4; Daniel 11:39-43) a military power is starting to rise up in Europe.

Interestingly, Catholic prophecy suggests that someone with one of the Baron Guttenberg’s many names (which includes the name Philip, spelled in German-style Philipp) will lead a multilingual army:

St. Methodius of Patara (4th century): …the nations that are located in the North will be moved into action with great speed and fierce anger…Then the nations that are located in the southern corner will be roused into action and the Great Philip with an army of people composed of 18 different languages will get together in the Seventh-Hilled City (Tzima Otto, H.  The Great Monarch and WWIII in Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Scriptural Prophecies. Verenika Press, Rock City (SC), 2000, p. 109).

The European Union currently “has 23 official and working languages” (ec.europa.eu/languages/languages-of-europe/eu-languages_en.htm), hence part of a European army that gets together in the “Seventh-Hilled City” could have people speaking 18 languages.

FWIW, I believe that Satan knows a lot about God’s plan and has inspired his ministers (2 Corinthians 11:14-15) to make “private prophecies” throughout history to be part of a major deception in the end that those who do not really have the “love of the truth” will follow (2 Corinthians 2:9-12).  Christians should not be ignorant of his devices (2 Corinthians 2:11) as many will be deceived in the end by “doctrines of demons” (1 Timothy 4:1).

Perhaps it should be noted that Europe has a population that is roughly the same size as the USA and Russia combined.  Europe has probably the most cutting edge physics and other researchers in the world, and has (on a combined basis) the largest economy in the world (by some measures it is second, but others show it first)–and the final King of the North/Beast power will be a military (Revelation 13:4; Daniel 11:39-43) and economic (Revelation 13:16-18) power.

Might Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg later rise up out of his current state of semi-obscurity and lead it, or at least assist in the process?

“And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”  (Mark 13:37)
