WND: Civil war may come to Europe; LCG: EU to get smaller, ‘possibly 10’ nations

Flag of European Union


Some are wondering if civil war may be coming to Europe:

November 12, 2015

EU flag burned as thousands protest migrants

Nationalist ‘uprising’ the primer for European civil war?

Nationalism, as in anti-European Union and anti-globalism, is sweeping through Eastern Europe and in no place is it catching fire faster than Poland.

Upwards of 50,000 Poles were reported out in the streets…

Demonstrators trampled and burned a European Union flag at one point, while a banner added to the anti-EU theme with the slogan “EU macht frei” (“Work makes you free” in German), a reference to the slogan over the gates at Auschwitz, according to the Telegraph.

Poland’s outgoing centrist government has agreed to accept about 7,000 refugees from Syria and Eritrea, a plan that has angered many Poles.

Germany, by contrast is accepting at least 1 million migrants from Syria and other countries in the Middle East and Africa. France has agreed to take 22,000, Britain 20,000 and Spain 17,000. Sweden has taken in more than 40,000 Middle Eastern refugees this year and Greece 88,000, according to Inquisitr.com.

In the wake of the migrant crisis, Poland’s anti-migrant Law and Justice party won in a landslide election Oct. 25. A new government will be sworn in within days. …

Some, such as American author Pamela Geller, have speculated Europe could be on the brink of civil war if the migrant crisis continues unabated and European politicians continue to hang out the “welcome” banner in face of growing opposition from their own people. http://www.wnd.com/2015/11/eu-flag-burned-as-thousands-protest-migrants/#1BPcLMuHRBIqGp3O.99

I have been warning for years at this news page that civil war may come to Europe.  Now, WND (World News Daily) and others are reporting the possibility.  Notice something from the EU Observer from earlier this week:

The migration crisis facing Europe could lead to the collapse of the European Union and even to war, the bloc’s longest-running foreign minister said in an interview published Monday (9 November).

Jean Asselborn, foreign minister of Luxembourg since 2004, told German press agency DPA that the core EU element of borderless travel, agreed in the Luxembourg city of Schengen in 1985, is under threat.

“We have maybe only several months time left [to save it],” he said.

“The European Union can break apart. That can happen incredibly fast, when isolation instead of solidarity, both inwards and outwards, becomes the rule.”

Asselborn is not the first European politician to warn of a break-up.

Slovenian prime minister Miro Cerar said last month he believed the EU would “fall apart” if no solution is found to slow down the influx of refugees and migrants. https://euobserver.com/migration/131019

Related to the European migrant crisis, LCG sent out the following today in its Tomorrow’s World News & Prophecy e-zine:

November 13, 2015

The migration crisis, according to the Foreign Minister of Luxemburg, Jean Asselborn, “could lead to the collapse of the European Union and even to war” (EU Observer, November 9, 2015). His concern is that Europe may have “only several months time left” before a collapse of the European Union which he believes “can break apart” (ibid.). Since Luxembourg currently holds the “six-month rotating presidency of EU” and counts itself “among the bloc’s six founding states, its words carry extra weight” (ibid.). France, which used to be the leading nation in Europe on foreign affairs and diplomacy, has little to no answers, and struggles to cope with the lack of influence it now holds as it is sidelined by a resurgent Germany (The Economist, November 7, 2015).

The confusion in Europe should be no surprise to individuals following Tomorrow’s World. Bible prophecies foretold these developments thousands of years ago. Explaining the final empire of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, the prophet Daniel said, “Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided… 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” (Daniel 2:41-42). This end-time European power will have links to the ancient Roman Empire. If a EU break-up does occur soon, watch for a smaller group of nations to emerge (possibly 10) that will form a close alliance with the Catholic Church (see Revelation 17).

Actually, because of its twists and changes in its own teachings, those who are following Tomorrow’s World will likely be confused about this. Unless LCG changes in several ways, I do not believe that LCG will know when Revelation 17:12-13 is being fulfilled or when the Great Tribulation will start, until it is too late.

LCG, via Tomorrow’s World, has taught that the EU would break up and that a ‘core Europe’ (without nations like Luxembourg) of 10 nations (or 11 depending on the LCG statement) would be the only ones supporting the final Beast power. At least now LCG only says that it is “possibly 10” nations instead of insisting like it has in the past.

Notice, for example, the following from LCG’s Tomorrow’s World in 2014:

In recent years, as the EU grew to 27 members, skeptics criticized the biblical idea that ten nations would form the nucleus of a final Beast power in Europe (Daniel 2:41-43). However, the Bible clearly states that at the time of the end, “ten kings… will give their power and authority to the beast” (Revelation 17:12-13). If this Beast is led by a particular nation (e.g., Germany), then the total number involved could well be 11! While it is not yet clear which nations will make up the final Beast power prophesied by Daniel and the Apostle John, world events indicate that a group of 10 or 11 nations coalescing to form the final Beast power is not far-fetched, fictional, or even a far-off idea-it is a soon-coming reality! (TW News & Prophecy, May 16, 2014)

Bible prophecy reveals that the final leader of the end-time European Beast power will be an influential person who is both self-confident and arrogant (Daniel 11:36-39). This charismatic leader will lead ten nations who give their “power and authority” over to him (Revelation 17:12-13). (A Young Face Among Old European Leaders. TW News & Prophecy, July 11, 2014)

Despite its confusing/contradictory messages, it is good that LCG is no longer publicly insisting on 10 or 11 nations like it did before. Yet, the fact that LCG is still apparently focused on the 10 nation possibility, in my view, shows that unless certain matters change there, it will not known when the Great Tribulation will start until it is too late.

As far as Europe goes, at this news page, I first reported that we may see civil unrest in Europe on November 3, 2007.   And back in September 2010, I posted:

Furthermore, it may partially because of civil war/unrest/riots that a de-Islamization of Europe will take place.  The situation in Europe will change and the leader known biblically as the ten-horned Beast or the final King of the North will rise up. (Thiel B. Civil War in Greece? September 5, 2010)

Now France is apparently taking the steps it has related to Al-Qaeda, burqas, and Romanian gypsies for reasons of safety, economics, and culture.  But its positions often incite opposition.  It may be that enough opposition will rise up and cause civil unrest and possibly civil war in France. (Thiel B. Civil Unrest in France? September 12, 2010)

As well later in December 2010 (see Civil Unrest in Greece (and it was predicted) where my warning included Poland.

Civil unrest in Europe is expected. Places such as France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Eastern Europe have potential for this occurrence. In addition to austerity measures, Islamic protests and immigration related issues will also likely be factors in flaming protests and devastating riots. Expanded civil unrest will have major impacts on the euro and on Europe itself.

We are seeing Islamic immigration issues raising concerns throughout Europe, and this is not done yet.

Civil unrest and/or civil war will erupt in Europe. Places such as France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Austria, Greece, and Eastern Europe (like Slovenia, Croatia, Moldova, and Bulgaria) have potential for this occurrence. In addition to Islamic protests and immigration related issues, trade and austerity will also likely be factors in flaming protests and devastating riots.

Europe will likely lose the UK and perhaps some other nations, but others still want to join it.  While borders may be redrawn into ten regions/kingdoms, I do not expect that the final Beast will be composed of only ten currently existing nations.  Those that teach that (PCG also comes to mind) may not realize what is rising in Europe until it is too late.

Some items of possibly related interest may include:

Must the Ten Kings of Revelation 17:12 Rule over Ten Currently Existing Nations? Some claim that these passages refer to a gathering of 10 currently existing nations together, while one group teaches that this is referring to 11 nations getting together. Is that what Revelation 17:12-13 refers to? The ramifications of misunderstanding this are enormous. A related sermon is titled Ten Kings of Revelation and the Great Tribulation.

Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European? The Book of Revelation tells of a beast power that will rise up.
