Post-Brexit summit could pave way for European army

13 September 2016

EUROPEAN Union leaders will meet in Slovakia this Friday with one thing on their mind.

Defence and security will be top of the agenda at the first EU summit minus the UK after the Brexit vote.

For many, Friday’s meeting in Bratislava will be a chance to create a blueprint for greater military co-operation across Europe without Britain, which has traditionally opposed the idea, there to block efforts.

It comes after France and Germany prepared joint efforts for a “more active” defence policy and EU foreign affairs boss Federica Mogherini announced four priorities for defence co-operation.

While the former Italian foreign minister stopped short of announcing a European armed force she called for “battle groups” that could be quickly called into action and proposed creating a headquarters in Brussels to run military and civil operations.

“This could become the nucleus around which a common European defence structure could be built,” she said, adding there was now the “political space” to do things not possible before.

“It’s good to clarify we are not talking about a European army, but about European defence: something we can really do, concretely, starting now.” …

In August, Hungarian and Czech leaders called for a “joint European army” to secure their borders against people trying to enter Europe. It echoes comments from EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in March 2015, who said a European force was needed to convey a “clear message” to Russia. …
Despite high-level calls for a military force, Ms Quintana said any military ambitions need to be carefully weighed against Russia’s fear of encirclement and to avoid unnecessary duplication of efforts already covered by NATO.

“It has to be done with a lot of careful thought and focus on the southern flank and migration problems across the Mediterranean might be a better way of implementing that as a first blush and then leaving NATO to deal with the East but we’ll have to see how it develops,” she said.

A NATO official said the force welcomes “efforts from European countries to strengthen their defence capabilities.”

However it also warned: “It is important that there is complementarity, not unnecessary duplication between the EU and NATO.”

University of Bath War and Technology Centre’s David Galbreath said ambitions for a new military force are “laughable” given the fall in military spending in recent years.

“An army suggests something quite significant. It suggests offensive operations, a European officer corps, common training, common standards,” he said.

“There’s not really a discussion around anything like that. Those examples of the EU trying to get together [in the past]….it was just really a mess. It ended up being a kind of lesson that it’s one thing for someone to say ‘why don’t we get together to invest in something’ [but in reality] one country does all the work.” http://www.news.com.au/world/europe/postbrexit-summit-could-pave-way-for-european-army/news-story/06d0b30a566f8069091ab144f2efd750

I have warned for some time that Russia’s actions related to the Ukraine, Crimea, and eastern Europe could help trigger a stronger European military. Now, more and more are calling for it and this Friday’s meeting is a step towards it.

Will there be a European army or is this laughable?

According to the Bible, there will be European King of the North (the “He” below) who will end up with a great army:

25 He shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the South with a great army. (Daniel 11:25)

So, it is prophetically interesting now that we see more and more leaders in Europe calling for a European army.

The idea, even though most do not believe Europe will have an offensive force, is NOT laughable.  It will happen even though various leaders in Europe do not think that is their current objective.  Notice the following 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. (Isaiah 10:5-7)

This European Beast, King of the North, power will conquer:

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 13:3-4)

37 He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. 38 But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. 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.

40 “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. 41 He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon. 42 He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. (Daniel 11:37-44)

Many have felt that Europe’s military power is gone, but, as prophecy shows, it will rise again.

While some do not think that Europe is organized in a manner to have a great army, the Bible also teaches that Europe will reorganize:

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)

A European military is in the process of forming. This Friday’s planned meeting seems to be a step in that direction. With the UK on the way out of the European Union, European leaders feel more free to discuss joint military cooperation in Europe.

This will not bode well for the USA (Daniel 11:39), its Anglo-Saxon descended allies (cf. Jeremiah 30:7), nor a power that is relatively soon going to arise in the Middle East and North Africa (Daniel 11:40-43).

Forbes’ Brexit Monster is the Beast of Revelation
Various ones have been properly convinced that there is a plan for a European superstate. Forbes’ writer Tom Worstall wrote that the Brexit vote was about the United Kingdom “not joining the monster of the European Union to come.” The Bible tells of a Beast monster that will arise in the end times in Europe. Dr. Thiel cites news reports, as well as the Old and New Testaments, to show that the monster many fear will arise in Europe, despite the vote by the British to exit the European Union.
Post Brexit Prophecy On June 23, 2016, the voters of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) chose to leave the European Union. Now with this BRitish EXIT (Brexit) vote, what is prophesied to happen to the UK? Will the UK do well or be taken over and made slaves? Dr. Thiel explains from biblical prophecies what is ahead for the UK, Europe, and even the USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. This is a video.
