Possible USA-EU trade deal: A prelude to the end?

Symbol of European “Babylon”


The European Union and USA are reportedly close to making the largest trade deal in the history of humanity:

June 18, 2013

LONDON — At the G8 Summit in Britain, President Barack Obama and European leaders announced the start of an effort to reach what is being called the biggest trade deal in history. Officials are focusing on regional trade agreements because the long effort to reach a new global trade deal is stalled.

British Prime Minister David Cameron stood with U.S. President Barack Obama and European Union leaders to make the announcement.

“We are talking about what could be the biggest bilateral trade deal in history,” Cameron noted. “A deal that will have a greater impact than all the other trade deals on the table put together.”

It was one of Cameron’s key goals for the summit he hosted for leaders of eight of the world’s top industrialized countries.  But such regional trade deals are really not the leaders’ first choice, according to G8 expert Stephen Pickford of London’s Chatham House.

“I think everybody accepts that having a fully multi-lateral, universal trade deal is the best option.  But that seems to be unattainable at the moment.  And so I think people are focusing on what is the second best, which is to take forward trade liberalization between willing partners,” said Pickford.

But not all the partners are so ‘willing,’ even in this effort among close allies.

At preliminary talks, the French Trade Minister nearly vetoed the plan.

France was concerned about trade in movies and other entertainment products.  French officials want to protect their industries from the power of Hollywood and American Internet companies.

But aside from such concerns, most leaders see trade as a jobs creator and a stimulus to economic growth worldwide…

“It is important that we get it right and that means resisting the temptation to downsize our ambitions or avoid tough issues just for the sake of getting a deal,” said Obama.

It will take months, maybe years, to reach an EU-U.S. free-trade accord, and disagreements on some issues may force the leaders to scale back their ambitions.  But President Obama promised to stay personally engaged in the issue, which he calls “critical” to the effort “to promote growth and jobs.” http://www.voanews.com/content/us-eu-trade-deal-could-be-worlds-biggest/1684158.html

For at least two decades, I have believed that a split would happen between the USA and the Europeans partially because of how the Europeans will view how the USA handles/mishandles bilateral trade issues (USA debt, GMO foods, relative military decline of the USA, weather, etc. are likely to be other factors).

Thus, it is possible that a major trade deal will be the prelude for the disappointment to come.

The Bible tells of a time when a Europe that thought it wanted peace changed its mind and became an instrument to punish the descendants of Israel.  In Genesis 48:16, Israel placed his name on the descendants of Ephraim and Manasseh, hence certain prophecies in the Hebrew scriptures that refer to Israel include the descendants that ended up in places such as the UK and USA.  Also since the USA is considered to be a ‘melting pot’ some of the prophecies associated with Samaria seem to be referring to it.

As far as the Europeans go, some of them are referred to be the term Assyria in biblical prophecy (see Germany’s Assyrian Roots Throughout History and Germany in Biblical and Catholic Prophecy):

5 “Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger
And the staff in whose hand is My indignation.
6 I will send him against an ungodly nation,
And against the people of My wrath
I will give him charge,
To seize the spoil, to take the prey,
And to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
7 Yet he does not mean so,
Nor does his heart think so;
But it is in his heart to destroy,
And cut off not a few nations.
8 For he says,
‘Are not my princes altogether kings?
9 Is not Calno like Carchemish?
Is not Hamath like Arpad?
Is not Samaria like Damascus?
10 As my hand has found the kingdoms of the idols,
Whose carved images excelled those of Jerusalem and Samaria,
11 As I have done to Samaria and her idols,
Shall I not do also to Jerusalem and her idols?'”  (Isaiah 10:5-11)

In general, trade agreements benefit both parties involved.  Yet, ultimately, the deal with the EU will not be good for the United States of America nor the British (not their Anglo-allies like Canada, Australia, or New Zealand).

I suspect that there will a few areas of major disagreement that will happen in such a trade deal, and that to hide their disappointment, some representing end-time Europe will declare that all is basically fine before they end up taking over the USA, which is prophesied in such scriptures as Daniel 11:39, 8:24-25, etc.

Each day steps are being taken that are aligning with end time biblical prophecy and the possibly coming trade agreement would seem to be a step that way as well.  Maybe a very important one.
