Donald Trump and Boris Johnson
A reader sent me a link to the following:
Boris Johnson backs Donald Trump on Nato spending
2 December 2016
Britain will support US President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign to get Nato countries to spend more on defence, Boris Johnson has said.
In a speech, he said it could not be “justified” that the US accounted for about 70% of Nato defence spending.
He also said the UK would not seek to prevent the EU from forming a closer common defence policy. …
The UK, which meets the commitment to spend 2% of GDP on defence, has also been urging other countries to increase their contributions. …
He committed Britain to the concept of collective Nato defence: “At the heart of this institution – Nato, the most durable and successful defence alliance in history – lies the security guarantee contained in the North Atlantic Treaty Article 5, that an attack on any one member shall be considered an attack against them all.
“And in offering that guarantee, President-elect Donald Trump has a point. It cannot be justified that one Nato ally, America, accounts for about 70% of the alliance’s defence spending while the other 27 countries manage only 30% between them. ” http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-38172512
So, now the USA and the UK are apparently okay with the idea of Europe building up its own military and spending more on military matters. Many in the European Union have been upset because of the Brexit vote in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union that Boris Johnson supported. With these comments, some in Europe might like him more.
But that will not help the UK or USA in the long run.
Europe may appear to be more financially supportive of NATO, but in the end will betray:
21 And in his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue. (Daniel 11:21)
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. … the king of the North (Daniel 11:39, 40)
23 “And in the latter time of their kingdom,
When the transgressors have reached their fullness,
A king shall arise,
Having fierce features,
Who understands sinister schemes.
24 His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power;
He shall destroy fearfully,
And shall prosper and thrive;
He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people.
25 “Through his cunning
He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule;
And he shall exalt himself in his heart.
He shall destroy many in their prosperity. (Daniel 8:23-25)
The above leader is the final European King of the North Beast power. He will eliminate the USA and the UK. It is likely that he may attack under the guise of a NATO exercise and/or otherwise feign military support for the USA and the UK.
By pushing the Europeans to spend more on their militaries, the USA and UK are ‘sowing wind,’ but will reap the whirlwind:
6 … But the calf of Samaria shall be broken to pieces.
7 “They sow the wind,
And reap the whirlwind.
The stalk has no bud;
It shall never produce meal.
If it should produce,
Aliens would swallow it up.
8 Israel is swallowed up;
Now they are among the Gentiles
Like a vessel in which is no pleasure.
9 For they have gone up to Assyria,
Like a wild donkey alone by itself;
Ephraim has hired lovers. (Hosea 8:6-9)
The reference to ‘Samaria’ above refers to the USA and the reference to Ephraim above refers to the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand (for biblically-related details, check out the article Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel). Assyria is a reference to a European power based out of central Europe (for biblically-related details, check out the article Germany in Biblical Prophecy).
Europe is actually starting to do something that the old Worldwide Church of God warned about decades ago, as is the UK. Notice something published back in 1981:
Either Western Europe slides slowly into the Soviet orbit by default– or Europe awakes to the threat, and leaders rise to the fore demanding that free Europe become a “Third Force” to protect Western civilization.
Bible prophecy predicts the latter — that there will be yet again, for the final time, a revival of the Roman Empire in what historians call “classic Europe” — stern and Central Europe. …
The stage is being set for some dramatic realignments of power in Europe. …
The Christian Science Monitor’s Joseph C. Harsch, of the reconstitution of what he calls “the whole of classic Europe.”
“Classic Europe” is nothing other than a new European alignment along the lines of the old Holy Roman Empire, under the Catholic aegis.
Thus, the final resurrection of the Roman Empire may be closer than you think. This will not be good news for the United States — decoupled from Europe — or Britain either. As British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher recently told President Reagan: “We in Britain stand with you.” And a British Foreign Office source told the Associated Press: “She is convinced that Britain’s lot lies with America.” (Hogberg G. AMERICA and EUROPE The Falling Out Begins! Plain Truth, June-July 1981)
As far as reorganization of Europe goes, the Bible tells of at least two more reorganizations to come in Revelation 17:2-13 (see also Must the Ten Kings of Revelation 17:12 Rule over Ten Currently Existing Nations?).
Europe is moving in the military direction WCG warned about and the USA and UK are encouraging it.
That is not all the the USA and UK are doing.
The Brexit and Donald Trump votes are also expected to affect trade:
2 December 2016
“You would certainly not be back of the queue, that I can tell you.”
With these words, US President-elect Donald Trump enlivened the hopes of many British politicians that a Trump presidency would re-invigorate the “special relationship” between the two. …
Trump’s cultural and business ties to the United Kingdom, his support for Brexit, and the shared political currents of discontent that fueled the Brexit and Trump votes seem to make them natural political bedfellows. Yet Trump and May remain opposed on many issues. As no one yet knows what a Trump presidency will look like, Great Britain could end up isolated between the EU it chose to leave and a United States that retreats back across the Atlantic. …
Though the Brexit vote expressed the frustrations of many British citizens toward globalization, Prime Minister Theresa May’s post-Brexit policy remains committed to liberalization and open trade. With Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson at the helm, the UK has embarked on a quixotic quest for access to the European single market without participation in the European customs union and freedom of movement. …
Kevin Featherstone, Head of the European Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science, also thinks that American and British economic history could bode well for an agreement. “With the ending of TTIP and the election of Trump, Washington may well respond positively” to British outreach on a free-trade deal, he told DW. …
Featherstone sees Trump as more oriented toward the United Kingdom than the Pacific-focused Obama. “Trump knows Britain better than other places and he may be open to British flattery,” Featherstone said. “But Trump puts at risk a cornerstone of British foreign policy: NATO.” http://www.dw.com/en/little-britain-trump-brexit-push-out-uk/a-36599681
As far as trade goes, I expect some type of trade deal between the USA and the UK. But, since the Bible teaches that the final European King of the North Beast power will dominate world trade for a time (cf. Revelation 18), understand that Europe will also make trade deals. It is highly likely that trade issues will be a factor in the Europeans finally deciding to attack the USA and/or the UK.
For the time being, we still have more time. It is not biblically possible for the ‘time of Jacob’s trouble’ (Jeremiah 30:7), also known as the ‘great tribulation’ (Matthew 24:21) to start during the first term of Donald Trump’s presidency.
However, Donald Trump, leaders in the UK, and various ones in Europe and elsewhere will take steps that will lead to the start of the ‘great tribulation’ (Matthew 24:21) relatively soon–it may very well start sometime in the next decade.
37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch! (Mark 13:37)

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.
