In today’s TW News & Prophecy, the Living Church of God reported:
“As its sovereign-debt crisis nears a third year and rescue efforts fail to stop the rot in financial markets, economists from Pacific Investment Management Co.’s Mohamed El-Erian to Harvard’s Martin Feldstein say ensuring the euro’s existence may require members to leave the 17-nation currency region. The result would be what El-Erian, Pimco’s Newport Beach, California-based chief executive officer, calls a ‘smaller, much better integrated, fiscally strong euro zone.’”While Chancellor Merkel and President Sarkozy are adamantly against this move, economists take a different view. One economist used a simple yet sobering analogy to illustrate the need for such a move: “Sometime in the next two years, we probably will see an exit as it becomes increasingly impossible for the euro to overcome its internal contradictions. It’s like cutting off a gangrenous leg to preserve the body” (Bloomberg, August 22, 2011).
Revelation 17 clearly states that ten “kings” will make up the final Beast power in Europe. These kingdoms may be ethnic groups, nations, or a mixture of both. In the current euro zone, we see strong economies in both eastern and western Europe. We could see “five toes” come from each region of Europe (west and east) making up this final Beast power (Daniel 2:41-43). We need to watch carefully as Bible prophecies come alive!
The Bible, in Revelation 17, is clear that the Europeans will reorganize in the future:
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)
Steps towards this happening are continuing as we in the Living Church of God have long taught–and there will be bumps in the road and problems (major civil unrest, or worse, may occur).
Of course, the Bible is clear that the final European Beast power will not actually be highly unified as it will basically be a combination of strong and weak, or as the Bible more literally states, iron and clay:
41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. (Daniel 2:41-43)
According to Bible prophecy, a European power, despite its fragility, is destined to temporarily be the most dominant force in the world, ultimately conquer the Anglo-descended nations (Daniel 11:39), and later come to its end (Daniel 11:45).
But before it is destroyed (Daniel 11:21-44), the final Beast power must come together and get to the place where it has major economic influence.
