European Technology and the Beast of Revelation

By COGwriter

For many years I have warned that the coming European Beast power would use and develop technology that will result in the taking over of the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies (though the Beast may let powers such as China take over areas like Australia/New Zealand).

Is this possible? What does the Bible teach? What has been going on that seems to confirm or deny the possibility that Europe is developing such a capability? What kinds of technology are the Europeans developing?

This article will provide some answers to these key questions. (There is also a related YouTube video titled Military Technology and the Beast of Revelation.)

The Beast Power Will be a Warring Power

Before going further, it needs to be pointed out that the Bible is clear that the final Beast power will be a warring power.

The Bible discusses a warring Beast from the sea in Revelation 13:1-10. This seem leader is referred to as a type of Beast in Daniel 7, a king in Daniel 8 and 11, and a king in Isaiah 10.

Here are some scriptures about this in Isaiah:

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?'"

12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Lord has performed all His work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, that He will say, "I will punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his haughty looks." (Isaiah 10:5-12, NKJV throughout)

Notice that in verse 7 the King does not think he will be a warring power, but it is in his heart to destroy nations. Notice also:

36 Then the king shall do according to his own will: ... 38 ... he shall honor a god of fortresses (Daniel 11:36,38)

So, we see that the King/Beast is a warring power.

Why Technology?

While modern warfare involves technology, why else would it seem from the Bible that technology may be the key to the Beast's military success?

Notice the following:

1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 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 13:1-4)

The 'sea' the Beast rises out of is the Mediterranean Sea (cf. Joshua 9:1; 23:4; Ezekiel 47:13-16); see also Europa, the Beast, and the Book of Revelation and/or watch Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European? Notice that the military power of the Beast was something that the world will marvel, be astonished about. Why? Because no one really thought that the European Beast power had the military ability to do what it did.

The King in Isaiah 10 and the Beast of the sea in Revelation 13 is referred to as the King of the North in Daniel 11.

What will he do? Notice the following that the King of the North does:

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. (Daniel 11:39)

Notice that the King was able to defeat defeat the 'strongest fortresses.' That is, the King was able to defeat what was considered to be the most powerful military force in the world. Isn't it the U.S.A. that is the land with the strongest fortresses in the 21st century?

The world will marvel because it did not believe that U.S.A. along with its Anglo-Saxon allies could be defeated (see also Anglo - America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).

This King of the North will also make a deal with another, called the King of the South, which will not last:

27 Both these kings' hearts shall be bent on evil, and they shall speak lies at the same table; but it shall not prosper, for the end will still be at the appointed time. (Daniel 11:27)

This deal may involve the destruction of the USA and its allies as discussed in Psalm 83:

3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people,
And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
4 They have said, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more."

5 For they have consulted together with one consent;
They form a confederacy against You:
6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
Moab and the Hagrites;
7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8 Assyria also has joined with them;
They have helped the children of Lot. (Psalms 83:3-8)

The Assyrians, who join with the peoples who currently are in Islamic lands, are led by the King of the North. I believe the above deal will involve the use of terrorism and not exclusively employ the latest in technology. But that, combined with troops perhaps from Mexico and something under the guise of a NATO exercise will throw the USA off and set it up for the type of sudden destruction the Bible warns of (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

Yet, after the destruction of the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies, the kings of the North and South will turn against each other.

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. 44 But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. (Daniel 11:40-44)

It would seem to need to be something like technology otherwise, the apparently Islamic King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43) would not so emboldened as to push against the King of the North.

Europe has Plans for Technology

Europe has been working on all kinds of technology. Technology would seem to be the key to a powerful European military, as well as likely its future economic dominance.

The Europeans have plans for technology and plans to benefit from it.  Here is some information:

The European Commission’s 2012 policy Communication on the European Research Area (ERA) should lead to a significant improvement in Europe’s research performance to promote growth and job creation. The measures in the Communication will have to be implemented by EU Member States, the Commission and Research Organisations to ensure the completion of ERA by 2014 as called for by the European Council.

To complete ERA and maximise the return on research investment, Europe must increase the efficiency and effectiveness of its public research system. This requires more cooperation so that the brightest minds work together to make greater impact on grand challenges (e.g. demographic-ageing, energy security, mobility, environmental degradation), and to avoid unnecessary duplication of research and infrastructure investment at national level.

The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.

ESA is an international organisation with 20 Member States. By coordinating the financial and intellectual resources of its members, it can undertake programmes and activities far beyond the scope of any single European country.

Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union2, a Europe 20203 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness. Running from 2014 to 2020 with an €80 billion budget, the EU’s new programme for research and innovation is part of the drive to create new growth and jobs in Europe.

Horizon 2020 provides major simplification through a single set of rules. It will combine all research and innovation funding currently provided through the Framework Programmes for Research and Technical Development4, the innovation related activities of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP5) and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT6)…

Horizon 2020 will tackle societal challenges by helping to bridge the gap between research and the market by, for example, helping innovative enterprise to develop their technological breakthroughs into viable products with real commercial potential.

22 June 2017

Europe's military capabilities are set to get a boost when joint defence plans are launched within the next three months.

EU leaders, at a summit in Brussels on Thursday (22 June), endorsed a Franco-German push to get governments to announce whether they will sign up to the new pan-EU defence scheme. ...

The initiative is part of an European Commission-led policy drive that, among other things, seeks to use EU funds to finance defence research.

The Commission earlier this month had proposed to add €500 million in 2019 and 2020 for new military development.

Post 2020, the figure increases to some €1.5 billion every year for both research and development of new military technology.

"European defence policy was supposed to start in 1954, we proposed it in 2014, it's happening now," said EU commission president Jean-Claude Juncker.

EU council chief Donald Tusk said the plans would allow much deeper integration on defence.

Public money for military industries

Critics say the plans amount to subsidising the EU's defence industry to develop new weaponry.

Europe is planning on improving its economy and position in the world via technology and research.  It is hoping to have all the pieces together by 2020.  And despite its flaws, for a short time, the European power will dominate the world per Revelation 13, 17, and 18.

Europe has long wanted to break itself from dependency upon USA technology. Notice the following related to the Snowden leaks and other espionage issues that was reported:

While German politicians may be “utilizing” the spying scandals, their concerns betray long-standing attempts to free Europe from dependency on U.S. technology, said Jan Techau, who heads the Brussels office of the Carnegie Endowment.

Europe is moving forward with its plans, and yes, items such as the spying scandals are part of this (see also The Snowden Leaks are Leading to the Destruction of the USA).

Notice also the following:

January 21, 2016

DAVOS, Switzerland—Tensions are rising between governments and big U.S. technology companies over widening surveillance demands, part of a broader debate over how to reconcile online privacy with the fight against terrorism. …

Governments, particularly in Europe, want U.S. tech firms to turn over more information to them directly.

Notice the following:

May 6, 2019

The PESCO defense pact – a show of unity and a tangible step in EU integration – was set up in December 2017 between EU governments and involved two phases of joint initiatives, each consisting of 17 projects. ...

Long blocked by London, PESCO, is one of the most tangible steps in EU integration since Britons voted to leave the bloc, as militaries begin to plan, spend and deploy together.

The eventual aim of PESCO is to develop and deploy forces together, backed by a multi-billion-euro fund for defense research and development. The idea aims to bring together European countries with a military capacity and political desire to collaborate on planning, carry out joint analyses of emerging crises and to react to them quickly.

I have written for years that Europe would end up with its own military--as well as one with technology. (Watch also the video: PESCO and a Great European Army).

The Bible shows that Europe will have control over buying and selling (Revelation 13) and trade (Revelation 18) and that will take technology. Technology that it is working on getting.

What Technology?

Notice what Germany's Angela Merkel stated on July 2, 2016:

In her weekly video podcast on Saturday, Chancellor Angela Merkel said Europe should become the most "competitive and knowledge-based continent in the world."

She basically has concluded that Europe must dominate technology.

There are more technological projects in Europe that have military potential than this article will list.

But there are several. Such as Galileo, quantum computing, fusion, cables, super colliders, rockets, and ELI.

Galileo: A More Advanced 'GPS' That the USA Has Foolishly Agreed to Depend Upon

Europe is in the process of Europe reducing its dependence on USA communication's technologies, while increasing the USA's dependence upon Europe. A major way is with its Galileo program. Galileo is Europe’s answer to the USA’s Global Positioning System (GPS). It is expected to be more accurate and to cover more area of the planet (though it would not surprise me that area coverage could be reduced for budgetary concerns) than GPS. Galileo represents a new era in the sense that it is a major EU project that improves on what the USA has and shows that the Europeans have the potential to become a modern military power (though Galileo is only one of the needed pieces).

Europe developed its Galileo system to break its dependence on the USA (see EU, UK, US, Asia, & Galileo) and it was specifically funded because of its military potential (see EU Approves Galileo For Military Use).

It needs to be understood that military planners in the USA initially did not want the Europeans to develop their Galileo GPS as that was considered to be a potential military threat as BBC reported years ago:

BBC Jan 7, 2010… Galileo should have been operational by now but the project has run into myriad technical, commercial and political obstacles, including early objections from the Americans who thought a rival system to GPS might be used to attack its armed forces.

Now, instead, the USA and UK are ignoring this and have decided to rely on the European-controlled upcoming Galileo system for part of their military defense.  This is dangerous, overlooks the lessons of history, and ignores the warnings in the Bible. 

Europe’s Galileo navigational system is moving ahead:

Geneva, Switzerland, Feb. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronic applications, today announced that it had released its Teseo II single-chip satellite-tracking IC to the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Commission Joint Research Center (JRC) for testing for eCall approval. The testing campaign is coordinated by the European GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) Agency (GSA) as part of its effort to accelerate Galileo adoption.

China, Russia, Japan, India and the European Union are each working on their own satellite systems to identify the locations of mobile devices on the ground.

Euro GPS Galileo gets ready for nuclear missile use…

France has never been pleased with the idea that its fully independent nuclear deterrent needs US help to make accurate counter-force type strikes.

Thus some people do tend to suggest that for most users Galileo is pretty much a nice-to-have, strictly optional thing. Only for the French military (or other non-US-aligned EU forces) is it truly desirable. The German CEO of one of the firms building it rashly said as much to US diplomats a while ago.

So we can see that encrypted Galileo is mainly about French nuclear missiles (or other EU military kit)

Meanwhile, doubts persist in several quarters about Galileo’s touted economic model. Security concerns regarding China’s early involvement, and its potential Beidou-2/Compass projects, have been equally persistent, and there is good reason to expect that the constellation has a military purpose. On a European political and contractual level, however, Galileo is now irreversible.

Europe’s fledgling satellite-navigation system has achieved a crucial milestone, showing that it’s capable of pinpointing locations around the globe.

The four satellites that currently comprise the Galileo satellite constellation — Europe’s version of the United States’ GPS system— have passed a key test called In-Orbit Validation (IOV), European Space Agency officials announced Monday (Feb. 10)…

The four Galileo satellites— which launched in 2011 and 2012 — performed well during the tests, achieving an average positioning accuracy of 26 feet (8 meters) in the horizontal direction and 30 feet (9 m) in the vertical 95 percent of the time, officials said. The system’s average timing accuracy was 10 billionths of a second.

Those numbers should get better as more satellites come online. ESA plans to launch six more Galileo spacecraft during 2014, potentially allowing the constellation to start providing its initial services by the end of this year, ESA officials said.  The Galileo satellite navigation network will eventually consist of 30 satellites.

December 13, 2017

Europe has four more Galileo navigation satellites in the sky following their launch on an Ariane 5 rocket. After today’s success, only one more launch remains before the Galileo constellation is complete and delivering global coverage.

Ariane 5, operated by Arianespace under contract to ESA, lifted off from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana at 18:36 GMT (19:36 CET, 15:36 local time), carrying Galileo satellites 19–22. ... This mission brings the Galileo system to 22 satellites. Initial Services began almost a year ago, on 15 December 2016.

Initial services became available on 15 December 2016. Then as the constellation is built-up beyond that, new services will be tested and made available, with system completion scheduled for 2020. accessed 12/15/17

Europe’s Galileo satellite program continues to advance, despite some occasional delays. Europe declared years ago that Galileo was needed for military purposes and that is why it received funding at a critical stage of its development. The USA itself announced that it will depend on Galileo for part of its own military defense.

Years ago I warned that this (see USA GPS and EU Galileo linking was expected), was dangerous, and remains so. But I expected it, and so warned about it in 2009.  Notice that page 85 of my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect states the following:

In 2013, the Europeans are planning on having their own global positioning system (GPS), called Galileo, available for military applications. This will allow the Europeans to track the world and attack others without relying on the U.S.A.’s GPS. This will be the first time in the 21st century that Europeans will be able to have that type of independent military capability.

Furthermore, according to a 2009 report from the U.S. government, the U.S. Air Force may have to start relying on the European Galileo system (at least to a degree) beginning in 2013, as the U.S. GPS capabilities are expected to deteriorate by then (other problems are also appearing in the newer U.S. satellites). Because the Europeans will be able to control Galileo, they will also likely be capable of derailing certain sophisticated U.S. military applications. This will give the Europeans a unique defensive (as well as offensive) capability that no others on the planet will have.

When I wrote that in May of 2009, the U.S. Air Force denied that there was such a problem. Galileo was partially operational in 2013, more so in 2016, and is getting more operational as it moves forward.

The time will likely be here is a relatively few years where the USA will not have the lead in this type of technology. And while some believe that the USA will overcome this, the reality is that the Europeans may decide to take advantage of their lead once they have it.

Linking up with Galileo (which the USA has publicly stated that it will do; see USA GPS and EU Galileo linking was expected) specifically puts the USA at major risk of not being able to launch an effective counter-strike if the EU attacks the USA. Do Americans not remember that the wars in Kuwait and Iraq were waged first by the USA having vastly superior air/space systems? And now the USA’s financial mess is leading the USA to rely on other nations for part of this capability. The world is changing and the USA is losing its vast military supremacy. And top powers that lose their military supremacy have historically been taken over by others. Yes, this satellite matter is that serious.

Galileo continues to move forward and the USA expects to be partially be using it:

November 30, 2016

Space-Based Influence

Rep. Jim Bridenstine, R-Oklahoma, could also be a voice for GPS. ...

He proposed the American Space Renaissance Act (HR 4945), which includes a forward-looking mandate for GNSS.

Under Section 103 of the bill, DoD would be required to report on its strategy to “best leverage” signals from other systems including Galileo and commercial PNT systems “that use commercial satellite constellations.”

That strategy is to include at least these three elements:

The mention of commercial systems in the context of PNT services brings to mind eLoran, which has been discussed as a public private partnership, and a PNT service now being offered by Iridium and Satelles. At least one other private sector PNT service with a space component is under discussion.

The commercial element Bridenstine included in his legislation is particularly interesting in light of the incoming administration’s emphasis on supporting domestic, commercial space capability. (How Will GNSS Fare Under a Trump Administration? Washington View • November/December 2016. Copyright © 2016 Gibbons Media & Research LLC.

The USA appears to be looking for commercial advantages and seems not to see the military risk Europe's Galileo poses to it.

Galileo 'went live' in late 2016:

15 December 2016

Galileo navigation satellite system goes live

After 17 years and numerous setbacks and budget boosts, Europe’s Galileo satellite navigation system has gone live. At this point, 18 of the planned 30 satellites are already in orbit.

The European Union’s promise to enhance localization services was became reality on Thursday, with the successful launch of four more satellites of the bloc’s prestige Galileo project.

Initial services, free to users worldwide, will be available only on smartphones and navigation units already fitted with Galileo-compatible microchips. The new system is designed to deliver more precise data for private and commercial users than the current US Global Positioning System (GPS) does.

“Galileo will increase geo-localization precision tenfold,” European Commission vice-president Maros Sefcovic said ahead of Thursday’s launch.

An Ariane 5 ES rocket took off on Thursday morning at 10:06 am local time in Kourou, French Guyana, and carried four satellites, each weighing 738 kilograms, into orbit. …
High precision for private and commercial users

Galileo is one of the prestige projects of the European Union. …

Using GPS, private users can navigate with a precision of up to 15 meters (m). Galileo offers a precision of up to 4m for its fully open service. Commercial users and official government services can even receive a precision of a few centimeters. This is important, for example, for fully or partially automated planes, cars or ships. By 2018 Galileo should be fully operational, with at least 24 satellites in place. That is the threshold the system must reach before it can deliver a complete service.

The high precision offered by Galileo was one of the reasons why the Pentagon rejected the system in the first place. There were fears that adversaries of NATO or of other allies could use it for military purposes. …

Besides the ESA member states, numerous other countries are involved in Galileo in one way or another. Among them are India, Israel, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Ukraine.

Galileo, and the partial apparent USA dependence upon it, gives the Europeans a unique type of military power. This is something all should be concerned about. While one article states it will be fully operational in 2018 and another 2020, it may be that some of its military applications will take a bit longer to be in place.

The power in Europe is starting to rise up. And yes, ultimately, I believe that Galileo (or similar technology) will be used to as part of an attack on American (USA and possibly Canadian) forces (and probably also the UK), as well as to help prevent counter-strikes.

It is not just Galileo that is assisting Europe. Because of the Snowden leaks (see The Snowden Leaks are Leading to the Destruction of the USA), the Europeans are developing alternative communication's abilities to prevent USA espionage:

Merkel, Hollande to discuss European communication network avoiding U.S.
Reuters - Feb 15, 2014

BERLIN (Reuters) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday she would talk to French President Francois Hollande about building up a European communication network to avoid emails and other data passing through the United States.

Merkel, who visits France on Wednesday, has been pushing for greater data protection in Europe following reports last year about mass surveillance in Germany and elsewhere by the U.S. National Security Agency. Even Merkel’s cell phone was reportedly monitored by American spies…

“We’ve got to do more for data protection in Europe, there’s no doubt about it,” Merkel said on Saturday.

Germany has been pushing, so far in vain, for a ‘no-spy’ agreement with Washington.–sector.html;_ylt=Aifv_RnFOxmHWgcdgTzAhhXQtDMD;_ylu=X3oDMTBsaGVqY3E0BGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHNlYwNzcg

25 February 2014

Brazil and the European Union have agreed to deploy an undersea communications cable linking the Portuguese capital of Lisbon to the city of Fortaleza in Brazil. The project seeks to reduce Brazil’s reliance on the US after Washington spied on Brasilia, Reuters reports, citing Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. The statement was made at a summit in Brussels. Rousseff said the USD 185 million cable project was central to "guarantee the neutrality" of the internet.

"We have to respect privacy, human rights and the sovereignty of nations. We don't want businesses to be spied upon," Rousseff said...Brazil relies on US undersea cables to carry almost all of its communications to Europe.

Brazil's president, Dilma Rousseff, has seized on Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel's call for a Europe-based internet system in order to strengthen her own case for a new submarine internet cable to connect Brazil and Europe.

“I welcome the fact that Merkel has suggested this,” Rousseff said during a trip to Brussels today (24 February) for the annual EU-Brazil summit. She continued: “We have similar concerns, especially when we are talking about communications across oceans, which is why we attach so much importance to cables under the sea... They have to be protected from the Brazilian and the EU side.”

Merkel said on 15 February, ahead of a meeting with French President François Hollande, that Germany and France would “talk with European providers that offer security for our citizens, so that one shouldn't have to send emails and other information across the Atlantic. Rather, one could build up a communication network inside Europe.”

Data protection has become one of the dominant subjects of EU-level politics and policymaking since revelations that the US National Security Agency (NSA) has been scooping up vast amounts of data about individuals as well as spying on leading national politicians (including Merkel) and on EU buildings.  Rousseff's response to the secret documents released by the whistleblower Edward Snowden...

Brazil, Europe plan undersea cable to skirt U.S. spying
Brazil and the European Union agreed on Monday to lay an undersea communications cable from Lisbon to Fortaleza to reduce Brazil's reliance on the United States after Washington spied on Brasilia...U.S. President Barack Obama has since banned spying on the leaders of close allies, but trust has been damaged...The cable agreement marks rare progress for Rousseff in her ties with the European Union, the top foreign investor in Brazil...;_ylt=AwrTWfz.cAtT4nwACq3QtDMD

So, despite assurances about limits to spying on leaders personally given by then USA President Obama, Brazil and the European Union are taking a major step to reduce USA espionage. This, of course, will weaken the USA as it has been able to spy on all calls from Brazil over to Europe in the past.

The Europeans are making moves that will end up hurting the USA.

If Europeans were truly close friends of the USA, would the USA spy on them as much and would the Europeans take so many steps to become independent of the USA?

Of course not. Yet, most are unaware of how serious this is becoming.

Consider also the following:

14 May 2018

The Brexit row between the UK and the EU-27 over Galileo is escalating. ...

The European Commission says Brexit means the UK will have to be excluded from a key element of the system after March next year.

This is the Public Regulated Service, or PRS - a navigation and timing signal intended for use by government agencies, armed forces and "blue light" services.

The PRS is designed to be available and robust even in times of crisis.

Brussels says London cannot immediately have access to it when the UK leaves the European bloc because it will become a foreign entity. PRS is for EU member states only. ... 

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, reiterated on Monday the bloc's view that the UK was locking itself out of Galileo PRS by walking out of the EU.

"Third countries and their companies cannot participate in the development of security-sensitive matters," he told an event in Brussels. 05/14/18

Europe is developing its own military communications satellite system called Galileo and plans to exclude US ally, the United Kingdom, from parts of it. Europe is taking militaristic steps. The USA should not rely on Europe or Galileo.

Espionage, Data Centers, and Quantum Computing

Notice also the following:

December 8, 2014

PARIS—U.S. businesses are building more computing data centers in the European Union ahead of new data-protection rules, an E.U. official said Monday, citing new data.

“We already see a substantial increase of foreign-direct investment in digital technologies in storage centers, data centers, processing,” said Paul Nemitz, a director in the European Commission’s Justice Unit, speaking at a data-protection forum organized by France’s data-protection watchdog. ...

The push for data centers on European soil provides a glimpse at how global tech companies are adapting to the commercial and legal fallout from revelations of widespread U.S. government surveillance.

The companies say their plans stem from the need for more capacity as Internet users consume growing amounts data—not geopolitics. Some technology lawyers in Europe say that both factors are at play, however.

“This is proof to us that, in anticipation of Europe becoming a trust center for data, big global corporations, in particular from the United states, are investing in Europe,” Mr. Nemitz said.

Any data showing that U.S. companies are stepping up the construction of data centers in Europe emphasizes how much the technology landscape has shifted in the year and a half since former U.S. National Security Agency Edward Snowden leaked information about large scale data collection via U.S. companies and data based in the U.S. ...

“Just as Switzerland has attracted money, with a trusted framework, Europe will be able to attract data, data processing, data centers,” Mr. Nemitz said. “The path toward trust through high levels of protection is good for the economy, good for growth and employment.”

The Beast power would expect to have a lot of data centers, and the USA has inadvertently accelerated that already (see also The Snowden Leaks are Leading to the Destruction of the USA).

Someone sent me a link to the following article in Italian that I had machine-translated into English (with the original Italian shown below the English):

Europe: one billion euros for the quantum computer

30 October 2018

Over the next ten years, Europe will invest one billion euros on quantum technologies; … with the participation of Swiss, German and French universities and companies, of the Italian Space Agency (ASI)

The news comes directly from Vienna, where in these days the “Quantum Flagship” initiative was launched, launched by the European Commission on the proposal of the Italian physicist Tommaso Calarco and the CNR. The investment is part of a larger framework that will see investments for six billion euros in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) by 2020, as announced in the Quantum Manifesto , a document that identifies the investment and research priorities in the sector. …

Perhaps the most ambitious project is to build a quantum computer that can quickly process calculations that would require a time equivalent to the age of the universe for a supercomputer. The stakes are immeasurable: as Il Sole 24 Ore points out , “the promise of quantum computing and of a cybersecurity based on quantum mechanics could represent that change of paradigm to bring the disparity between us and the Sino-Californian companies a little closer”.

Europa: un miliardo di euro per il computer quantistico

Nel corso dei prossimi dieci anni, l’Europa investirà un miliardo di euro sulle tecnologie quantistiche … con la partecipazione di Università e aziende svizzere, tedesche e francesi, dell’Agenzia spaziale italiana (Asi)

La notizia arriva direttamente da Vienna, dove in questi giorni si è tenuta l’iniziativa “Quantum Flagship”, lanciata dalla commissione europea su proposta del fisico italiano Tommaso Calarco e del Cnr. L’investimento fa parte di un quadro più ampio che vedrà investimenti per sei miliardi di euro in Information and Comunication Technologies (Ict) entro il 2020, come annunciato nel Quantum manifesto, documento che individua le priorità di investimento e ricerca nel settore. …

Il progetto più ambizioso forse è costruire un computer quantistico in grado di elaborare rapidamente calcoli che a un supercomputer richiederebbero un tempo pari a quello dell’età dell’universo. La posta in gioco è incommensurabile: come evidenzia Il Sole 24 Ore, “la promessa del quantum computing e di una cybersicurezza basata sulla meccanica quantistica potrebbe rappresentare quel cambio di paradigma da avvicinare un poco la disparità tra noi e le aziende cino-californiane”.

So, the Europeans plan to spend one billion on quantum technology research and around six billion on information and communication technologies to essentially change the paradigm that China and the USA (California) are the leaders.

A reader from Europe sent me a link to the following:

June 15, 2022

Germany will host the first European supercomputer with exascale capabilities while four new mid-range supercomputers will be hosted in Greece, Hungary, Ireland and Poland.

The European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) announced on Wednesday (15 June) that it selected the five sites to host and operate the next generation of European supercomputers. 

The joint undertaking is a public-private partnership involving EU institutions, member states and private companies to boost Europe’s supercomputing capacities.

“These five new supercomputers will support us in the development of high-precision models. This will help us tackle societal challenges and facilitate advanced research in the fields of climate change, cosmology, engineering, materials science and more,” said Margrethe Vestager, Vice-President of the Commission responsible for the digital portfolio. 

The most powerful device, the exascale supercomputer JUPITER, will be hosted by the Jülich Supercomputing Centre in Germany and will be installed in 2023. ...

A wave of European supercomputers 

According to Bettina Stark-Watzinger, German Federal Minister of Education and Research, two more exascale supercomputers will also be launched in Munich and Stuttgart in the next few years in cooperation with the German states of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg.

The EuroHPC JU’s announcement comes just after LUMI, Europe’s most powerful supercomputer to date, was inaugurated on 13 June in Finland. 

The other four sites were chosen to host mid-range supercomputers, which have so-called petascale, meaning performing over a quadrillion calculations per second, or pre-exascale capabilities.

Yes, Europe is starting to have more and more technology.

Computer technology has many purposes, and prophetically look also be involved in controlling buying and selling by the European 666 beast power (cf. Revelation 13:16-18).


Furthermore, Airbus, another European entity, is planning on being involved with telecommunications:

June 15, 2015

European aerospace giant, Airbus, has been contracted to build the world's largest satellite constellation.

The company will produce 900 spacecraft for OneWeb, a British Channel Islands-registered concern that aims to broaden internet access to the underserved.

More than 600 satellites will initially be launched, with the rest held as spares.

The deal was announced at the Paris Airshow.

The multi-billion-dollar OneWeb constellation will dwarf any previous commercial network in the sky by a factor of 10.

The world is changing. European satellites are expected to be used by the Beast power.

Speaking of Airbus, it also is developing a lot of technology:

August 4, 2015

Airbus has won a patent for a hypersonic plane...

The European planemaker’s proposal would slash the journey time from Paris to Tokyo to under three hours, from 12 hours. ...

The concept comes as commercial space companies such as Virgin Galactic pursue plans for low-level space flights. ...

“Airbus Group and its divisions apply for hundreds of patents every year in order to protect intellectual property,” a spokesman said.

European technology is increasing.

Fusion Energy

Europe is making more moves in the area of nuclear fusion and energy production:

General Atomics to ship world’s most powerful magnet to ITER global fusion energy project

June 16, 2021

After a decade of design and fabrication, General Atomics is ready to ship the first module of the Central Solenoid, the world’s most powerful magnet. It will become a central component of ITER, a machine that replicates the fusion power of the Sun. ITER is being built in southern France by 35 partner countries.

ITER’s mission is to prove energy from hydrogen fusion can be created and controlled on earth. Fusion energy is carbon-free, safe and economic. The materials to power society with hydrogen fusion for millions of years are readily abundant.

Despite the challenges of Covid-19, ITER is almost 75 percent built. For the past 15 months, massive first-of-a-kind components have begun to arrive in France from three continents. When assembled together, they will make up the ITER Tokamak, a “sun on earth” to demonstrate fusion at industrial scale. …

It is sometimes called the “beating heart” of the ITER machine.

How powerful is the Central Solenoid? Its magnetic force is strong enough to lift an aircraft carrier 2 meters (6 feet) into the air. At its core, it will reach a magnetic field strength of 13 Tesla, about 280,000 times stronger than the earth’s magnetic field. The support structures for the Central Solenoid will have to withstand forces equal to twice the thrust of a space shuttle lift-off. …

Hydrogen fusion is an ideal method of generating energy. The deuterium fuel is readily available in seawater, and the only by-product is helium. Like a gas, coal, or fission plant, a fusion plant will provide highly concentrated, baseload energy around the clock. Yet fusion produces no greenhouse gas emissions or long-lived radioactive waste. …

Fusion energy is closer than many people realize.

The project was originally named International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, but it has been renamed to “Iter”, a Latin word meaning “the way” or “the path”. But normally it is capitalized to ITER.

While the USA is involved in this project, the ITER project is headquartered in Saint-Paul-les-Durance, France.

That means Europe will gain any practical benefits first and it would take years for the USA to potentially benefit–years that the USA will likely not have (see Might the U.S.A. Be Gone by 2028?).

A few years ago, Germany shocked the world by successfully testing its experimental nuclear fusion reactor:

December 20, 2016

A little over a year ago, Germany turned on the world’s largest nuclear fusion reactor and faced sharp speculation over whether the machine could function as intended. Now, tests conducted by US and German researchers confirm that the experimental Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) stellarator is indeed producing magnetic fields that make controlled nuclear reactions possible, and with a high degree of accuracy and incredibly low error rate. With these test results, new confidence and hope are spreading through the renewable energy industry, as nuclear fusion could be the key to ending fossil fuel dependence worldwide. …

The research team found that W7-X is generating magnetic fields just the way its design intended: strong, twisted, and 3D. “To our knowledge, this is an unprecedented accuracy, both in terms of the as-built engineering of a fusion device, as well as in the measurement of magnetic topology,” the researchers wrote in a report. Combined with an error rate less than one in 100,000, the tests conclude the W7-X stellarator has made history. It could become the first power plant on Earth to use little more than saltwater to create a safe, clean, long-lasting source of energy for generations to come. 12/08/16

A fusion reactor capable of producing limitless clean energy is up and running in Germany.

The Wendelstein W7-X fusion energy device known as a stellarator produced its first batch of hydrogen plasma when it was started earlier this year.

The device essentially works like a star in a jar, harnessing the near infinite power of the sun. Since then scientists have been monitoring the device and recording readings, according to a study in the journal Nature Communications.

Once the technology is viable it could be incorporated into power plants across global cities allowing Earth to run on limitless clean energy indefinitely.

The W7-X is the world’s largest stellarator and is currently operated by Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Germany.

The largest and most sophisticated stellarator in the world, Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X), has just started operation, with the aim to show that the earlier weaknesses of this concept have been addressed successfully, and that the intrinsic advantages of the concept persist, also at plasma parameters approaching those of a future fusion power plant. Here we show the first physics results, obtained before plasma operation: that the carefully tailored topology of nested magnetic surfaces needed for good confinement is realized, and that the measured deviations are smaller than one part in 100,000. This is a significant step forward in stellarator research, since it shows that the complicated and delicate magnetic topology can be created and verified with the required accuracy.

Fusion has the potential to cover the energy needs of the world’s population into the distant future. (Nature Communications7, Article number: 13493, 2016

A year before that, I reported about some of the potential this could have (see German helium fusion stellarator may help propel Europe to dominate the world). In 2021, it “has been anticipated to achieve operations of up to approximately 30 minutes of continuous plasma discharge in 2021, thus demonstrating an essential feature of a future fusion power plant: continuous operation” (Wendelstein 7-X. Wikipedia, accessed 06/16/21).

It is even clearer now that this has massive economic potential.

Could these items have military potential as well?

Well, notice the following listed under author affiliations in the actual published study from 2016:

Laboratory for Plasma Physics, Ecole Royale Militaire—Koninklijke Militaire School, Avenue de la Renaissance 30, 1000 Brussels, Belgium

Maarten Vergot & Tom Wauters (

Furthermore, realize that hydrogen nuclear bombs are a type of fusion reaction:

The hydrogen bomb is a nuclear weapon that uses a mixture of fission and fusion to produce a massive explosion.Source: Boundless. “The Hydrogen Bomb.” Boundless Chemistry Boundless, 26 May. 2016. Retrieved 10 Dec. 2016 from

So, yes there seems to be military potential with these EU projects.

In addition to Germany’s stellarator project, notice another new German technological advance from 2017:

25 March 2017

World’s largest ‘artificial sun’ turned on in Germany

24 March 2017

Scientists have just turned on the “world’s biggest artificial sun”.

The huge structure could help sed light on new was of making green fuels, among other technologies, the engineers behind it hope.

In all, the sun is made up of a honeycomb of 149 spotlights, which together make the structure known as “Synlight”. Inidividually, they are the kinds of xenon short-arc lamps used for cinema projectors, instead put to work simulating sunlight.

If it points all of those lights at one single, small spot, it can create about 10,000 times the amount of solar radiation that would normally fall there.

Such light is in rare supply in Germany at this time of year. So scientists are able to simulate it – and hence test new ways of making hydrogen and exploring cleaner energy sources. …

The goal is to eventually use actual sunlight rather than the artificial light produced at the Juelich experiment, which cost £3 million to build and requires as much electricity in four hours as a four-person household would use in a year.

Mr Hoffschmidt conceded that hydrogen is not without its problems – for one thing, it is incredibly volatile – but by combining it with carbon monoxide produced from renewable sources, scientists would, for example, be able to make eco-friendly fuel for the aviation industry.

In December 2015, I reported about some of the potential other German hydrogen technology could have (see German helium fusion stellarator may help propel Europe to dominate the world).

What about nuclear uses or spinoffs from all this research?

France is a nuclear power already–and has expressed interest in modernizing its nuclear capabilities.

Would Germany ever consider developing its own nuclear capability?

A reader sent me a link to the following in 2016:

9 December 2016

The issue is so secret that it isn’t even listed on any daily agenda at NATO headquarters. … The discussion surrounds nuclear deterrent. …

In European capitals, officials have been contemplating the possibility of a European nuclear deterrent since Trump’s election. The hurdles — military, political and international law — are massive and there are no concrete intentions or plans. Still, French diplomats in Brussels have already been discussing the issue with their counterparts from other member states …

“It’s good that this is finally being discussed,” says Jan Techau, director of the Holbrooke Forum at the American Academy in Berlin. “The question of Europe’s future nuclear defense is the elephant in the room in the European security debate. If the United States’ nuclear security guarantee disappears, then it will be important to clarify who will protect us in the future. And how do we prevent ourselves from becoming blackmailable over the nuclear issue in the future?”

An essay in the November issue of Foreign Affairs argues that if Trump seriously questions the American guarantees, Berlin will have to consider establishing a European nuclear deterrent on the basis of the French and British capabilities. Germany’s respected Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, meanwhile, even contemplated the “unthinkable” in an editorial: a German bomb. …

In an interview that gained attention internationally in mid-November, Roderich Kiesewetter, the chairman for the conservative Christian Democrats on the Foreign Policy Committee in German parliament proposed a French-British nuclear shield in the event Trump calls into question American protection for Europe. “The US nuclear shield and nuclear security guarantees are imperative for Europe,” he told Reuters. “If the United States no longer wants to provide this guarantee, Europe still needs nuclear protection for deterrent purposes.” …

Wolfgang Mischnick, parliamentary floor leader of the Free Democratic Party, which shared power with Kohl’s Christian Democrats at the time, publicly clarified what that meant during a session of the Bundestag on February 20, 1974: “It is still possible to develop a European nuclear power,” he said.

Forty years later the issue is actually now being raised for the first time.

Germany has been contemplating the “unthinkable.’ Europe is now publicly stating what some of us were pretty sure some leaders believed. Things will change with Europe. The stellarator may be part of the reason.

The Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump has became turning points for Europe to move to develop its own military. It was the UK that often would veto an actual European army. But with the UK out, the restraining influence of the UK is gone. And Europe has its own military called PESCO (watch also PESCO and a Great European Army).

The British exit from the EU, combined with the use of Donald Trump as a type of scapegoat by some European leaders, has emboldening many who have wanted to see Europe dominate the West.

The Bible foretells the time of a great army (Daniel 11:25) and military power (Revelation 13:1-10) in Europe. The Bible also shows that it will have vast economic power and cause many to prosper (Revelation 18). Many in Europe in general, and Germany in particular, are working towards that goal, despite biblical warnings of being part of it (e.g. Revelation 18:4).

Is it possible that Europe could be considering weapons as powerful or even more so than thermonuclear bombs?


The fusion projects could greatly assist Europe and reduce its dependency of Islamic sources for fuel. It also has massive military potential.

Germany used deuterium in WWII when it was trying to develop its own atomic weapons. The USA, with the help of German-born scientists, was able to do this first. But for WWIII, the Germans seem to be ahead (see also World War III: Steps in Progress).

Since the warring and prosperous Beast of Revelation 13 will be European (check out Europa, the Beast, and Revelation and also watch the YouTube video Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?), I have long felt that technology would be the key to Europe’s prophesied military successes (Daniel 11:39-43) as well as a reason that it will eventually be crushed by a Eurasian power (cf. Daniel 11:44-45; Jeremiah 50:41-43).

Could the ramifications of these fusion reactors actually propel Europe to rise up?


One of the biggest problems that Europe has is its need for energy and its dependence on Russia as well as Islamic sources for energy. If instead of having to buy energy from Russia and the Middle East Europe generates its own power (and sells some of it), then Europe will have more money available to grow its own economy as well as support more militaristic ambitions.

Europe Has Long Had Nuclear Weapons

While many act like Europe is just lying around with no military deterrent, the reality is that even if the USA took no further steps, Europe has direct access to American nuclear weapons.

Notice something from Time:

Is Italy capable of delivering a thermonuclear strike? Could the Belgians and the Dutch drop hydrogen bombs on enemy targets? And what about Germany — a country where fear of atomkraft is so great that the last government opposed all civilian nuclear power? Germany's air force couldn't possibly be training to deliver bombs 13 times more powerful than the one that destroyed Hiroshima, could it?

It is Europe's dirty secret that the list of nuclear-capable countries extends beyond those that have built their own weapons — Britain, France and Russia. The truth is that Belgium, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands store nuclear bombs on their air-force bases and have planes capable of delivering them. There are an estimated 200 B-61 thermonuclear-gravity bombs scattered across these four countries. Under a NATO agreement struck during the Cold War, the bombs, which are owned by the U.S., can be transferred to the control of a host nation's air force in time of conflict. Twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Dutch, Belgian, Italian and German pilots remain ready to engage in nuclear war. (Harrall E. What to Do About Europe's Secret Nukes . Time, January 4, 2010.,8599,1943799,00.html, viewed 05/09/14)

But that is not all. The amount is apparently even higher:

The US has supplied some 480 B61 thermonuclear bombs to five so-called “non-nuclear states”, including Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey. Casually disregarded by the Vienna based UN Nuclear Watchdog (IAEA), the US has actively contributed to the proliferation of nuclear weapons in Western Europe...

Among the five “undeclared nuclear states”, “Germany remains the most heavily nuclearized country with three nuclear bases (two of which are fully operational) and may store as many as 150 [B61 bunker buster ] bombs” (Ibid). In accordance with “NATO strike plans” (mentioned above) these tactical nuclear weapons are also targeted at the Middle East.

While Germany is not categorized officially as a nuclear power, it produces nuclear warheads for the French Navy. It stockpiles nuclear warheads (made in America) and it has the capabilities of delivering nuclear weapons. Moreover, The European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company – EADS , a Franco-German-Spanish joint venture, controlled by Deutsche Aerospace and the powerful Daimler Group is Europe’s second largest military producer, supplying France’s M51 nuclear missile.

Germany imports and deploys nuclear weapons from the US. It also produces nuclear warheads which are exported to France. Yet it is classified as a non-nuclear state. (Chassudovsky M. Belgium or Iran, Where’s The Nuclear Threat? Europe’s Five “Undeclared Nuclear Weapons States” Are Turkey, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and Italy Nuclear Powers? Global Research, February 12, 2010, updated March 21, 2013. viewed 05/11/14)

Here is a more recent report about them:

17 July 2019

A published – and later amended – draft report, prepared by a member of a NATO-affiliated body, went into a bit of extra detail about NATO’s nuclear deterrent, revealing the locations and number of US nukes in Europe. ...

Belgian Green Party MP Wouter De Vriendt, who attended the session, provided the copy of the draft to De Morgen daily. According to the draft, NATO stores some 150 nuclear B61 bombs in six bases: Kleine Brogel in Belgium, Büchel in Germany, Aviano and Ghedi-Torre in Italy, Volkel in the Netherlands and İncirlik in Turkey.

So, there seem to be about 150 nuclear bombs in Europe that the USA has apparently placed under European control. Presumably, this does not include France's arsenal as those are not USA nuclear bombs.

The reality is that if Europe chooses to turn against the USA, it has the nuclear ability to do so pretty much any time.

But after the election of Donald Trump, it is considering developing more of its own. The German press had the following:

9 December 2016

The issue is so secret that it isn't even listed on any daily agenda at NATO headquarters. ... The discussion surrounds nuclear deterrent. ...

In European capitals, officials have been contemplating the possibility of a European nuclear deterrent since Trump's election. The hurdles -- military, political and international law -- are massive and there are no concrete intentions or plans.

"It's good that this is finally being discussed," says Jan Techau, director of the Holbrooke Forum at the American Academy in Berlin. "The question of Europe's future nuclear defense is the elephant in the room in the European security debate. If the United States' nuclear security guarantee disappears, then it will be important to clarify who will protect us in the future. And how do we prevent ourselves from becoming blackmailable over the nuclear issue in the future?"

An essay in the November issue of Foreign Affairs argues that if Trump seriously questions the American guarantees, Berlin will have to consider establishing a European nuclear deterrent on the basis of the French and British capabilities. Germany's respected Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, meanwhile, even contemplated the "unthinkable" in an editorial: a German bomb. ...

Forty years later the issue is actually now being raised for the first time.

The Bible tells of a military power that will arise in Europe (Revelation 13:1-10). It may well have its own nuclear weapons.

Both Brexit and the election of US President Donald Trump have definitely affected Europe. In light of that, consider the following:

March 15, 2017

With Donald Trump leading the United States, Europe seems to be losing trust in the American nuclear umbrella. As the EU focuses on the need to have its own military, the issue of European nuclear deterrent comes to the fore. The debate has been triggered. This issue is intensively discussed in Germany.

The nuclear deterrence plan is eyeing France, proposing to turn the French nuclear potential into a European nuclear deterrent. It is believed that Germany could play a decisive role in convincing France, and may be the UK, to provide security guarantees for all of Europe. Under such a plan, Europe would become independent from the US. ...

Britain’s decision to leave the European Union could preclude its participation ...

Just three days before the US elections, an op-ed in Germany’s largest left-leaning news outlet, Spiegel Online, mused about the possibility of Germany pursuing its own nuclear weapons. In late 2016, Roderich Kiesewetter, a lawmaker and foreign policy spokesman with Germany’s ruling party, raised the issue after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States. According to him, a Franco-British nuclear umbrella could be financed through a joint European military budget that is due to begin in 2019, along with joint European medical, transportation and reconnaissance commands. This would require a doctrine, he said, allowing Europe to introduce nuclear weapons to a non-nuclear conflict. ...

Berthold Kohler, a publisher of the conservative Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, followed with the suggestion that Germany might need to augment the small British and French arsenals with a nuclear force of its own ...

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, Poland’s former prime minister and now the head of its ruling party provided the highest-level call for a European Union nuclear program in the February interview with a German newspaper. Kaczynski has broached a taboo subject.

Maximilian Terhalle, a German professor currently teaching in Britain, ... concludes that Germany must think about getting its own nukes, perhaps in collaboration with neighbors. ...

A lot has been said about the danger of an arms race in Europe. The very fact that the very idea of creating an «independent» European nuclear deterrent has triggered debates and is considered seriously by European savvies and politicians is a matter of grave concern

With Donald Trump and Brexit, the Europeans are more and more looking to become their own independent military power.

Various ones in Europe are advocating more nuclear weapons for Europe.

Europe is in the process of developing an empire.

While this has long been a Church of God position, notice the following from pro-Brexit politician Nigel Farage:

Nigel Farage (Wikipedia)

“Look guys, why do we want to be part of an emerging empire?

“That’s what the French Europe minister has called it.

“They’re building an empire; one with an absence of democracy.

“One that actually wants to have its own military by 2025 and is still intent on expanding.

“I think there are some big lessons from history about states like that…

“It’s up to you.” 04/10/19

Although Nigel Farage is warning against it, we are seeing more and more call for things like a European army as well as a European empire.

Jean-Claude Juncker (Wikipedia)

Europe should build its own army and not rely on security guarantees from Washington, the European Commission president said following the election of Donald Trump. At the same time, Jean-Claude Juncker called for the preservation of the transatlantic partnership. …

“We need more security in Europe, and I do not mean just the anti-terror fight,” Juncker said. …

“We need it now. The idea that the Americans will eternally see to … European security is not true. Independent of the outcome of the US election, the Americans will not see to Europe’s security forever. We have to do it ourselves. And this is why we need a new approach to the European community of defense, including a European army,” Juncker said.  11/10/16

Some believe that Europe's "military capabilities should be equal to those of the US" (

But Europe does not have to have equal military capabilities to defeat the US. The US has attempted to develop military capabilities for many, many scenarios. To defeat the US, Europe only has to focus on that. Since the US does NOT consider that Europe is (or will be) a serious threat, this will work to Europe's military advantage--and Europe may well bomb the USA with some of the USA's nuclear weapons.

B61 Nuclear Bomb (Wikipedia)

Germany is interested in having nuclear bombers to carry US nuclear bombs:

Germany wants nuclear bombers

April 14, 2019

Germany’s armed forces are currently studying the possibility of acquiring nuclear bombers capable of using the new American B61-12atomic bombs.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon itself plans to deploy these new atomic bombs in the German region of Eifel, in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The German air force already has multi-tasking Tornado warplanes, which are already capable of deploying American atomic bombs. But those aircraft are going to be replaced, possibly, by European-developed Eurofighters, or by United States manufactured F/A-18 Super Hornets. …

Germany does not manufacture atomic weapons but has come to consider itself as a nuclear power because it has vectors to use them,

It is my view that Europe will likely attack the USA and/or the UK under the guise of a NATO (or some other defense treaty) exercise and use nuclear bombers.

Notice that the Bible tells of a coming time of massive devastation:

23 'The whole land is brimstone, salt, and burning; it is not sown, nor does it bear, nor does any grass grow there, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, which the Lord overthrew in His anger and His wrath.' (Deuteronomy 29:23-24)

19 Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts
The land is burned up,
And the people shall be as fuel for the fire; No man shall spare his brother.
20 And he shall snatch on the right hand
And be hungry;
He shall devour on the left hand
And not be satisfied; Every man shall eat the flesh of his own arm. 21 Manasseh shall devour Ephraim, and Ephraim Manasseh; Together they shall be against Judah (Isaiah 9:19-21).

The above descriptions are consistent with a nuclear or similar attack. Manasseh represents the USA and Ephraim its British-descended allies (see Anglo - America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel). THIS HAS NOT YET HAPPENED IN HISTORY AND IS A PROPHECY FOR OUR TIME.

According to the Bible, Europe will become a massive problem for the USA, UK, and much of the rest of the world--Europe will become a destructive military power (Revelation 13:4; Daniel 11:39).

Europe has ELI and Other Laser Abilities

While some will correctly point out that the USA has a massive military advantage over Europe, the USA’s overconfidence, combined with its excessive sharing of military technology with Europe is also putting it at risk.  Notice the following:

February 13, 2014

Scientists achieve nuclear fusion with giant laser

Computerworld – Researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Wednesday said they’ve achieved a first: A nuclear fusion system has produced more energy than it initially absorbed…

The research, published in the peer reviewed journal Nature, involved a petawatt power laser used to try to ignite fusion plasma fuel in a confined space. Each pulse of the laser, which delivered peak power of 1,000,000,000,000,000 watts, lasted less than 30 femtoseconds, or 0.00000000000003 seconds.

The laser squeezes hydrogen atoms together producing helium atoms, and in the process a massive amount of energy is released.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has awarded two subcontracts for the High Repetition-Rate Advanced Petawatt Laser System (HAPLS), being built for the European Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) Beamlines science facility in the Czech Republic. The contracts were awarded to Femtolasers Produktions (Vienna, Austria) and Lasertel (Tuscon, AZ)…

The ELI Beamlines facility represents an investment of approximately $350 million from the European Union and Czech Republic. It forms part of the pan-European ELI project, and is being designed to advance the state-of-the-art for high power lasers, allowing international scientific research in medical imaging, particle acceleration, biophysics, chemistry, and quantum physics.

On the surface, this shows that the USA is still developing potentially important energy and military technology.  But notice that this is tied in with a facility in the Czech Republic, as well as a contractor in Austria.  The Europeans have a laser project called ELI that seems to partially have the intended capability to be a major space weapon (see also European technology advances, while USA disses EU to Ukraine)–and while laser nuclear fusion in the news item above is supposed to be about energy production, it may not need to be limited to that.

“With ELI, we enter a new era, pioneering the use of structural funds for an international research infrastructure,” says Wolfgang Sandner, who heads a consortium set up by the three countries and Italy to manage ELI.

As the ELI trio takes the stage, a fourth ELI project waits in the wings: a facility for relativistic physics, underpinned by an even mightier laser that would reach 200 petawatts of power. This titan’s beam would be strong enough to distort empty space — enabling researchers to test the idea that a vacuum can behave like a crystal and bend light. The powerful beam could probe the nature of virtual particles as they pop in and out of the void and search for radiation that is thought to be given off by an object accelerating through a vacuum.

The main goal of ELI is to create the latest laser equipment in the world. There will be accomplished and implemented research projects covering the interaction of light with matter at intensity being 10 times higher than currently achievable values. ELI will provide ultra-short laser pulses of a few femtoseconds (10-15 fs) duration and give performance up to 10 PW.

ELI will bring new techniques for medical image-display and diagnostics, radiotherapy, tools for new materials developing and testing, latest in X-ray optics, etc.

ELI will also be an attractive platform for educating a new generation of PhD. students, scientists and engineers. The Czech Republic will become the host country for the top international research, which may attract further investment in advanced technologies with high added value.

Europe is making technological progress that many do not realize.  It may be of interest to note that one of the projects inside the EU is named “ELI”. “Eli” is Hebrew for “My God” (Strong’s # 2241), see Matthew 27:46.   But I do not believe that the EU intends to appeal to the true God.  The ELI project may allow the Europeans to develop a type of laser weapon beyond that which the world has ever seen.

Here is another report about it:

On the coattails of CERN’s success with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), Europeans and the world at large have another grand science project to be excited about: the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) project involving 40 research and academic institutions. The project’s goal is to build powerful lasers — two in Romania and the Czech Republic and a third in Hungary. These lasers will progressively serve as prototypes for a fourth more powerful laser — the Ultra-High Field Laser — whose location hasn’t been decided yet, though the UK is the likely candidate.

The expected date for the first laser facility to become operational is sometime in 2017.

These lasers will be intense enough to perform electron dynamics experiments at very short time scales or venture into relativistic optics, opening up an entirely new field of physics for study. Additionally, the lasers could be combined to generate a super laser that would shoot into space, similar to the combined laser effect of the Death Star in the Star Wars trilogy, though the goal is to study particles in space, not annihilate planets…

It seems that Europe is the heir apparent of high-end experimental physics research.

It’s also noteworthy that the location for the facilities are in Eastern Europe. One of the goals of the project is to encourage academics in these countries to stay and build active research groups rather than leaving for Western European institutions. This would also encourage international researchers to visit these countries, a long-term approach to spur growth to build larger, active science communities.

While I also am not convinced that it will be used to annihilate distant planets, I do believe the ELI is likely to generate potential military technology and/or weaponry.   I also agree that Europe is becoming the heir of high-end experimental physics research in many areas.

XFEL: Brilliant X-ray laser comes online

The XFEL was considered a must-have machine for European science

1 September 2017

One of the most powerful X-ray machines ever built has officially opened in the German city of Hamburg.

The facility, which has cost more than a billion euros to build, will be used to study the detailed structure of matter, atom by atom.

It is called the European X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL).

Scientists say the way it shines light on targets will permit, for example, chemical bonds to be filmed in the instant that they are made or broken. …

The machine is a superconducting linear accelerator that is housed in a 3.4km-long tunnel complex some 40m beneath Hamburg and the nearby town of Schenefeld.

It works by accelerating bunches of electrons to almost light-speed, before then throwing them down a slalom course controlled by a system of magnets, known as undulators.

As the electrons bend and turn, they emit flashes of X-rays; and as the particles interact with this radiation, they also bunch even tighter.

Their compact configuration not only intensifies their light emission but gives it coherence as well. In essence, the X-rays are “in sync” and have the properties of laser light.

The beam will penetrate and detail at the atomic scale whatever is put in its path.

This could be the protein molecules that drive our bodies or the catalyst materials used to produce industrial chemicals. …

Many nations around the world use circular machines called synchrotrons that do a very similar job.

But the light generated by the XFEL is about a billion times brighter than those facilities. What also sets the XFEL apart is the super-fast time structure in its flashes.

So this ‘MUST HAVE’ EUROPEAN MACHINE is  A BILLION times brighter than others in the world. And this project may make a lot of physics-related discoveries. This is a project that is giving Europe technologies that it expects to exploit in the future.

This is another European project that is ahead of the USA. I believe that this one has military potential.

While I have not seen anything publicly from the Europeans that this has military applications, the US government has considered some. Notice the following:

The FEL weapon system will provide U.S. ships with speed-of-light fire capability for a range of missions and threats, a key element of a future shipboard layered defense.

An Innovative Naval Prototype program for the FEL technology began in 2010. It will demonstrate scalability of the necessary FEL physics and engineering for an eventual megawatt-class device.

This revolutionary technology provides multiple payoffs to the warfighter. The ability to control the frequency of a laser beam allows for operation in the maritime environment. The variability of the beam strength provides graduated lethality with minimum collateral damage and a low cost-per-engagement when compared to the projectile and logistics support costs of conventional explosive munitions. Against low-value targets it is an effective alternative to the use of expensive missile systems. The FEL provides speed-of-light and precision engagement of both high speed, sophisticated antiship missiles, as well as swarming, slow speed, unsophisticated small craft.

The USA has military interest (actually, the link above mentions “Research Challenges and Opportunities * FEL weapons …”), yet what Europe has may be a BILLION times more powerful!

Now, France has stated it has been developing lasers for military reasons:

July 30, 2019

It sounds like something out of a James Bond adventure, but France is to launch satellites armed with ‘powerful lasers’ into space.

The French Defense Minister Florence Parly said France was not being sucked into an arms race - and insisted the satellites would only be used to defend French space vehicles.

She said that the creation of a new French ‘space command’ announced by the president was central to a strategy to bolster defense capabilities, rather than offensive.

'If we want to be able to carry out real military operations in space, then we need to develop the ability to act alone,' Parly said, speaking at the Lyon-Mont Verdun air base.

'We reserve the right and the means to be able to respond: That could imply the use of powerful lasers deployed from our satellites or from patrolling nano-satellites.'

Parly described the mini-satellites that will patrol space from 2023 as 'fearsome little detectors that will be the eyes of our most valuable satellites'.

Furthermore, it perhaps should be pointed out that the Europeans are moving forward with quantum physics:

A year ago, the European Commission announced that it would create a €1-billion (US$1.1-billion) research effort in the field ...

“Europe cannot afford to miss this train,” says Vladimir Buzek, a member of the advisory group and a physicist at the Research Center for Quantum Information of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava. “The industry here, to my taste, is really waiting too long,” he said at the meeting.

Launched in April 2016 as part of an apparently unrelated initiative in cloud-computing, the quantum project is the European Commission’s latest decade-long, billion-euro initiative. 05/03/17

The science is famously hard to grasp, but this is what’s important: Quantum tech takes advantage of quantum physics to manipulate atoms and subatomic particles in new, potentially powerful ways. For example, the speed and power of today’s computers are physically limited to the transistors that carry out their functions. That’s because transistors are basically on-off switches for the flow of electrons in computers (typically represented in values of zeros and ones, or “bits”).

But quantum computing promises a way around this limitation through the quirks of quantum physics. Specifically, the bits in quantum computers can exist in more than one state at a time, can influence each other instantaneously from great distances, and can act as particles and waves simultaneously. These new bits — known as quantum bits or “qubits” — create the potential to process data much faster than traditional computers.

This technology holds immense promise. It could allow us to communicate faster, more accurately and more securely than ever before — meeting not only the security challenges of tomorrow but also revolutionizing everything from code-breaking to cybersecurity to climate modeling, and opening new frontiers in medicine and materials science.

Whoever gets this technology first will also be able to cripple traditional defenses and power grids and manipulate the global economy. The surest way to deter such behavior is to win this race. ... If the United States is to lead, immediate investment is needed to fund advances in quantum encryption, quantum computing and quantum communication. ... But if we do not take the appropriate action, America’s dominance in a technology-driven world will be short-lived. 05/13/18 

So, there is a technology that theoretically could knock out US defenses and communications, and the USA is not leading. While China is also working on this, it may well be that Europe will develop the military portion of this before others.

Super Colliders

The number of colliders in the U.S.A. dwindled down to one under the Obama and Bush Administrations, and the remaining one has faced budget cuts and possible closure. Yet, in Europe, it now has the leading one in the world, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and in 2012, Germany announced that it is planning a possibly even more advanced one called FAIR (FAIR stands for the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research). 

CERN's Large Hadron Collider project has been the world's largest physics project for some time. Historically, large physics projects have produced military weaponry. Many do not realize that even Leonardo Di Vinci supported himself financially, to a significant degree, by developing military weaponry. This is something that many scientists do.

Here is something I wrote in my book Hillary Clinton, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States:

Technology may be key to a powerful European military.  One aspect could include particle collider research.  The number of colliders in the U.S.A. has dwindled down to one under the Obama and Bush Administrations, and the remaining one is facing budget cuts and possible closure (Matson J. Nuclear Decelerator: Last U.S. Particle Collider is on Chopping Block.  Scientific American, August 24, 2012).  Yet, in Europe, it now has the leading one in the world, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and in 2012, Germany announced that it is planning a possibly even more advanced one called FAIR (FAIR stands for the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) (JCW.  Go-ahead for €1.6 billion particle accelerator.  The Local, June 13, 2012). The FAIR project is in process of construction.

I believe that Germany’s FAIR, along with the LHC and other technology, will help the Europeans produce military weaponry to fulfill certain end time prophecies. Since Revelation 13:4 is discussing what seems to be a unique type of warfare, this warfare likely includes certain high-tech weapons (such as electromagnetic pulse, neutron bombs, unique delivery systems, etc.) that will be effective for a while. The FAIR and the LHC projects are also likely to spin-off economic benefits that may help propel Europe to be (for a short while) the economic leader of the world (cf. Revelation 18). Ultimately, the Europeans will be overcome by what appears to be a Russian-led, mainly Asian, confederation, cf. Jeremiah 50:41-43 & Daniel 11:44, possibly by exploiting some technological flaw, like creating a software virus, etc., while also amassing troops, etc.

The European Space Agency and other European programs related to technology like Horizon 2020 are expected to bear fruit to the economic and military power of Europe several years from now (Horizon 2020: The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. European Commission. Many projects are ongoing that will assist Europe. (Thiel B. Hillary Clinton, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States Nazarene Books, 2015, p. 150)

European collider and space technology is moving forward. An article of related interest is titled The Large Hadron Collider has Military Potential. Also, here is a link to a video: Could the Large Hadron Collider lead to destruction?

I would also add that France and Germany have electromagnetic pulse (EMP) military technology and could use that in a devastating way to weaken the USA. Furthermore, as the USA develops more EMP technology itself, it is likely to share a lot of that with the Europeans. The combination of European technology, combined with technology gleaned from the USA and UK, will one day prove deadly to the USA, UK, and their Anglo-Saxon descended allies.

CERN, FAIR, and Antimatter

I would add that for those that doubt colliders can result in major military weaponry, many scientists used to believe that antimatter could not exist for more than a small fraction of a second, yet the CERN Large Hadron Collider has able to produce and store antimatter for many minutes.

Antimatter is something that the LHC was able to produce and capture--even though many scientists doubted it could be done.  Here is something from NASA on Antimatter:

Antimatter is real stuff, not just science fiction. Antimatter is firmly in the realm of science with some aspects even entering the technology realm. There is also a lot of speculation about what one might do with antimatter.

What is Antimatter?

Antimatter is matter with its electrical charge reversed. Anti-electrons, called "positrons," are like an electron but with a positive charge. Antiprotons are like protons with a negative charge. Positron, antiprotons and other antiparticles can be routinely created at particle accelerator labs, such as CERN in Europe, and can even be trapped and stored for days or weeks at a time. And... they made antihydrogen for the first time. It didn’t last long, but they did it.

It costs far more energy to create antimatter than the energy one could get back from an antimatter reaction. ... Something to keep in mind, too, is that antimatter reactions - where antimatter and normal matter collide and release energy, require the same safety precautions as needed with nuclear reactions.

So NASA acknowledges that CERN with its LHC has produced and stored antimatter, that antimatter collection is expensive, and that antimatter is dangerous.  Now this something that Europe has decided to continue to research and produce. The FAIR collider will also likely conduct antimatter experiments.

Here is also something from a CERN-related website:

In 1928, British physicist Paul Dirac wrote down an equation that combined quantum theory and special relativity to describe the behaviour of an electron moving at a relativistic speed. The equation – which won Dirac the Nobel prize in 1933 ...

Dirac interpreted the equation to mean that for every particle there exists a corresponding antiparticle, exactly matching the particle but with opposite charge. For the electron there should be an "antielectron", for example, identical in every way but with a positive electric charge. The insight opened the possibility of entire galaxies and universes made of antimatter.

But when matter and antimatter come into contact, they annihilate – disappearing in a flash of energy. ...

At CERN, physicists make antimatter to study in experiments. The starting point is the Antiproton Decelerator, which slows down antiprotons so that physicists can investigate their properties.

Antimatter does have military potential.

Antimatter and other unusual items can cause massive damage and destruction. And as mentioned earlier, ELI seems to be a project to take CERN’s research another step or so forward.

USA is Losing its Lead in Space

While the USA is moving away from funding space projects, much of the rest of the world is moving ahead according to Voice of America (a USA government news agency):

The United States invested $38.7 billion in civil- and defense-related space projects, $8.8 billion down from its 2009 peak but still more than half of the global total.

Russia, by contrast, has ramped up its spending by an average of more than 30 percent over the last five years and is now the only country after the United States to spend more than $10 billion a year.

Japan, China, France, Germany, Italy and India all invested more than $1 billion a year, it said. China, currently in eighth place globally, is expected to ramp up spending considerably over the next decade.

“The current global context for public space programs shows many positive signs brought by new leading space nations and an ever-growing number of countries who have initiated plans to build up their space-based capabilities,” said Steve Bochinger, chief operating officer at Euroconsult.

The report showed the number of countries taking a serious interest in space exploration is rising.

The USA is beginning to lose its current lead in space.

Although some feel that Europe is too divided to get military spending or other matters done efficiently, not only does the Bible essentially predict that (Daniel 2:41-43), the Europeans themselves are attempting to make procurement changes related to their rocket and other space technology related to that as the following news item indicates:

PARIS — In what European Space Agency Director-General Jean-Jacques Dordain called a “Valentine’s Day present,” four European rocket-hardware builders on Feb. 14 submitted a united proposal for how to build the next-generation Ariane 6 rocket using an organizational setup that turns ESA’s traditional practice on its head.

The four companies — Airbus Defence and Space, Safran, OHB AG’s MT Aerospace and Italy’s Avio — have been given “total carte blanche” to create a contractor team with only one goal in mind: Produce a vehicle that can be built and launched for 70 million euros ($95 million), Dordain said.

“For years industry has been telling us: ‘Give us the freedom to organize ourselves as we want and we can be much more efficient,’” Dordain said here Feb. 13 during a conference organized by the French Aerospace Industries Association, GIFAS, and by Euroconsult. “They have their chance now, as we have put absolutely no constraints on them on geographic return or anything else. The only requirement is the cost: 70 million euros.”

Francois Auque, chief executive of Airbus Defence and Space’s Space Systems division, which is prime contractor for Ariane 5, said Feb. 13 that if ESA would allow industry the same freedom in developing and building launch vehicles as the French Defense Ministry allows in production of the M51 ballistic missile, rockets in Europe would be less expensive to build and operate.

Notice something I had published in 2009 in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect:

“Because of domestic economic concerns and international pressures, Barack Obama is shifting priorities away from defense spending… This will help lead to the destruction of the United States, when the Europeans are ready and the U.S.A. is not” (Thiel B. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect. Nazarene Books, 2009, p. 147).

The above has been happening. Furthermore, the USA continues to cut its ground troops (see, for example, US Army plans to shrink to pre-WWII levels) and no longer even has tanks in Europe (There are no longer USA tanks in Germany: Do Americans understand this is a serious risk?) in order to stop the Europeans from turning their technologies against the USA. While Donald Trump wants to increase military spending, he does not consider that Europe is a serious threat and is not taking steps to deal against a militarized Europe (actually, he has encouraged the Europeans to arm).

What About Artificial Intelligence and Cell Phomes?

What about computers, AI, and cell phones?

5G technology for cellular telephones is getting closer:

What will a 5G mobile phone be capable of?

January 10, 2019

Faster download speeds and more reliable connections are just some of the benefits mobile users should expect once 5G networks begin to take shape.

The next generation of mobile internet connectivity is widely anticipated to begin rolling out in 2019 and is set to bring with it new powers for smartphone users. With download speeds likely to increase significantly compared with current generation 4G, a high-definition film could be downloaded in a matter of seconds over 5G, …

Alongside the ability to send and receive data more quickly, 5G networks are also expected to be able to handle greater quantities of data, meaning smart devices getting smarter and able to carry out more complex tasks.

There are expected to be military applications with 5G:

Algorithmic Warfare: 5G Wireless Network Could Revolutionize AI

January 10, 2019

AI capabilities powered by 5G networks could help military operators fly swarms of unmanned aircraft, Sheppard said. “That high bandwidth, low latency network allows for … algorithmic alignment during operations,” she said.

It could also aid autonomous truck convoys where one manned vehicle is followed by a number of unmanned platforms, she noted.

“That careful coordination between the leader and the followers require that network connectivity,” she said. Upgrading systems to a 5G connection would allow for increased and faster data transfer, making the process more efficient.

Five-G will be a boon for fields associated with the electromagnetic spectrum, such as electronic warfare, signals intelligence and communication intelligence, she said.

“All of these fields, I think, are getting some much-deserved attention as 5G [comes online and opens] … up this new space for them,” Sheppard said.

Notice also:

The Internet of Things

To tie things together, the Telecom industry is rolling out 5G, in addition to 4G, as an integral component of the Lost of Identity Agenda. By its structure, it tells you that you will assimilate and resistance is futile. 5G, or Fifth Generation, is less about communication speed and more about weather control and mind control. After all, once your mind is not your own, you can accept anything. See my 2017 article, Are we losing identity to the hive?

You will be connected as part of the Internet of Things. Remember, you are no longer human, you are a thing. RFID microchips are being implanted in people all over the world. More than 3000 Swedes have already tagged themselves with microchips. Others have been implanted without their permission …. well, they did sign a document but didn’t read the fine print. Microchips are small enough to also be injected via vaccines and breathed in via chemical fallout as “pollution.” Hospitals have been tagging babies with microchips through ankle bands for years. Why not, instead, add them in those first vaccines? Chips are marketed so employees, like those in Wisconsin who accepted the chip, will be able to merge with machines to open doors, log into computers, store health information. Your body is not only the property of the State, but now it is suddenly hackable, too.

Russian Patriarch Warns ‘Antichrist’ Will Control Humans Through Gadgets

The leader of the Russian Orthodox Church has said that humans’ dependence on modern technology will result in the coming of the Antichrist.

In an interview with Russian state media, Patriarch Kirill explained he does not entirely oppose gadgets, but warned against “falling into slavery” to smartphones.

Patriarch Kirill said that the collection of user data including “location, interests and fears” will make it possible for humans to be controlled by external forces.

“Control from a single point is a harbinger of the coming of the Antichrist,” Kirill told the state-run Rossia-1 TV network …

“The Antichrist is a personality that will be at the head of the world wide web controlling the entire human race. Thus, the structure itself presents a danger,” he said.

The church leader stressed that “if we don’t want to bring the apocalypse closer, there should be no single [control and access] center.” 01/08/19

Well, technology will be something the Antichrist supporters will use.

Back in 2012, in an article about cell phones, I wrote:

The ability to control buying and selling, etc. would be vastly aided by modern technology. (Thiel B. Writer claims cell phone is “mark of the beast.” COGwriter, April 11, 2012)

Notice also the following from nearly seven years ago:

Forget a chip in your forehead – the ‘mark of the beast’ is the cell phone
April 10, 2012
The development of a new microchip for cell phones that knows the user’s location to within a few centimeters confirms the fact that contrary to biblical fears about mandatory implantable microchips, people have willingly exchanged their privacy for convenience and that the cell phone itself is the de facto “mark of the beast”.

…reports MIT Technology Review. “In theory, the new chip can even determine what floor of a building you’re on, thanks to its ability to integrate information from the atmospheric pressure sensor on many models of Android phones. The company calls abilities like this “ubiquitous navigation,” and the idea is that it will enable a new kind of e-commerce predicated on the fact that shopkeepers will know the moment you walk by their front door, or when you are looking at a particular product, and can offer you coupons at that instant.”

Over 82% of Americans own cell phones, with around half of these being smart phones. In the near future, the majority of Americans will own smart phones that will have the ability to track their location down to a few centimeters.

While cell phones themselves will not be the “mark of the beast,” the reality is that modern technology is certainly making spying on large populations easier. And even though I personally am not a cell phone person, I do not believe that owning them is something that the Bible prohibits.

As far as AI goes, the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put together the following two videos on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel related to it:


Billionaire Elon Musk declared he was worried that artificial intelligence (AI) may lead to the rise of an “immortal dictator,” a “godlike” entity that could take over the world. Is this accurate, or at least, close in some ways? Does Bible prophecy foretell of the rise of an immoral leader who considers himself above all gods? Will this result in great destruction? What is AI? How might it fit in with various prophecies? Was the increase in technological knowledge we now have prophesied over 2000 years ago? Will 666’s control over buying and selling involve any form of AI? Dr. Thiel goes over many scriptures, including prophetic ones, that involve human knowledge–which is the basis of AI. He also points out that when various prophesies were made, there was no technology capable of fulfilling them, but that because of computers, such ability exists now. Dr. Thiel also points out what Jesus will do about it.

Here is a link: Artificial Intelligence and Prophecy.


Crowdsourcing and Artificial Intelligence to solve “wicked problems”?

In 2016, the journal of Science published a paper that claims that crowdsourcing and artificial intelligence was the best way to deal with complex “wicked problems” like disease and climate change facing humanity. Is that possible or a false gospel? Is groupthink the answer? What does the Bible teach? What are real “wicked problems” and what does the Bible teach are real solutions?

A written article of related interest is titled: Study claims artificial intelligence and crowdsourcing will solve ‘wicked problems’ in the 21st century.

Here is a link to our video: Crowdsourcing and Artificial Intelligence to solve “wicked problems”?

Bible prophecy shows that a militaristic European dictator will arise and his supporters will apparently use something like AI. 5G and other technologies may well be utilized.

Notice what is coming with the European dictator Beast of the Sea and his Beast of the Earth Antichrist ‘partner’:

1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.
2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.
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?”
5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.
6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.
7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.
8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (Revelation 13:1-18)

The ability to control buying and selling, forced worship, etc. would be vastly aided by modern technology. The type of control that was written about in Revelation 13 was not possible over 1900 years ago when Revelation was written–but in the 21st century it is.

While cell phones are not the mark of the Beast, they, and related technologies, are making it easier for the Beast to gain control once he rises up.

Europe has More Plans to Utilize Technology

Europe has realized that technology is what it plans to use to grow.

Jean-Claude Juncker was elected to the presidency of the European Commission on July 15, 2014. Notice what he said then:

“I don’t want a Europe that just watches others while they are acting, sits there twiddling its thumbs while others move ahead,” Juncker, fluent in French, German and English, told the EU Parliament today in Strasbourg, France, during a speech in which he switched among all three languages. “I want a Europe that is at center stage.”

He wants an active Europe. He wants one that develops technology, including military technology. Notice something from a paper (bolding in the online paper he released) by Jean-Claude Juncker:

As we enter the new legislative cycle following the European Parliament elections in May 2014, the time has come for a new approachI see it as my key task to rebuild bridges in Europe after the crisis. To restore European citizens’ confidenceI want a European Union that is bigger and more ambitious on big things, and smaller and more modest on small things

The focus of this additional investment should be in infrastructure, notably broadband and energy networks as well as transport infrastructure in industrial centres; education, research and innovation; and renewable energy and energy efficiency

I believe that we must make much better use of the great opportunities offered by digital technologies , which know no borders…By creating a connected digital singl e market, we can generate up to € 25 0 billion of additional growth in Europe in the course of the mandate of the next Commission, thereby creating hundreds of thousands of new jobs , notably for younger job – seekers, and a vibrant knowledge – based society…To achieve this, I intend to take , within the first six months of my mandate, ambitious legislative steps towards a connected digital single market, notably by swiftly concluding negotiations on common European data protection rules…

We need to diversify our energy sources, and reduce the high energy dependency of several of our Member States…I strongly believe in the potential of green growth. I therefore want Europe’s Energy Union to become the world number one in renewable energies . I would also like to significantly enhance energy efficiency beyond the 2020 objective

Data protection is a fundamental right of particular importance in the digital age. In addition to swiftly finalising the legislative work on common data protection rules within the European Union, we also need to uphold this right in our external relations. In view of recent mass surveillance revelations, close partners such as the United States must convince us that the current safe harbour arrangements really are safe if they want them to continue. The U.S. must also guarantee that all EU citizens have the right to enforce data protect ion rights in U.S. courts, whether or not they reside on U.S. soil. This will be essential for restoring trust in transatlantic relations…

I also believe that we need to work on a stronger Europe when it comes to security and defence matters. (Juncker JC. A New Start for Europe: My Agenda for Jobs, Growth, Fairness and Democratic Change: Political Guidelines for the next European Commission. Strasbourg, July 15, 2014.

Notice that Jean-Claude Juncker WANTS THE USA TO AGREE TO STOP COLLECTING MASSIVE DATA ON THE EUROPEANS AND TO ACCEPT EUROPEAN DATA STANDARDS and wants a stronger European military. He and others have plans for technology.

Reuters reported the following:

Irked by U.S., but EU keeps own spy projects quiet

July 17, 2015

Revelations of U.S. spying in Europe have soured transatlantic relations, prompting a White House apology and, as leak followed leak over the past two years, have fostered feelings of moral superiority among Europeans.

Yet EU governments are stepping up surveillance of their own citizens...the 28-nation European Union itself, as a collective institution, is spending hundreds of millions of euros developing security technologies that civil liberties watchdogs say jeopardize rights to privacy. ...

With concerns growing over Islamist violence even before the attacks in Paris in January, EU spending on security research, at 1.7 billion euros ($1.9 billion) in the bloc's 7-year budget from 2014, is 20 percent up on the previous period.

EU officials estimate that represents a hefty 40 percent of all such spending by the bloc's 28 member states, many of which lack capacity to develop such technology themselves. Among top priorities are finding ways to focus mass surveillance of the Internet, email, mobile phones and social networks on suspects.

"Member states do conduct their own research," said an EU official familiar with such projects who spoke privately as he was not authorized to speak. "But a lot of them like to go through us - it helps keep some of this stuff at arm's length."

Most of the research the EU funds, much of it by private firms including from non-European states such as the United States and Israel, is listed in public tender documents, though these are time-consuming to consult. But about a tenth of the spending is set aside for work classified as top secret. ...

Despite EU insistence that systems are designed to be kept under strict judicial control, some experts note that, once developed with EU cash, the software and devices owned by private firms could be used by any future buyer with fewer scruples.  ...

Gaudino's firm was partner in a three-year EU-sponsored project known as CAPER - Collaborative information Acquisition, Processing, Exploitation and Reporting. Concluded nine months ago, it created a platform for police and security agencies to share data gathered in pursuit of organized crime gangs. ...

EU-funded security projects are no strangers to criticism.

One, known as INDECT, which ran for five years until 2014, developed ways to identify potential criminals using software to collate and analyze disparate information collected for example from CCTV, drones, GPS location services on phones.

Critics called it a real-life "Big Brother".

"The shift from identifying offenders to preventing crime implies that the presumption of innocence is no longer the normal case, but that all citizens are becoming suspects," argues David Wright, editor of 'Surveillance in Europe', an overview of the sector published last year.

The purpose of the INDECT project is to involve European scientists and researchers in the development of solutions to and tools for automatic threat detection. accessed 07/17/15

The goal of the CAPER project is to create a common platform for the prevention of organised crime through sharing, exploitation and analysis of Open and private information sources.

The CAPER project is supported by the European Commission...:

CAPER main features are:

CAPER will support collaborative multilingual analysis of audiovisual content (video, audio, speech and images) and biometrics information, based on Visual Analytics and Data Mining technologies. The integration of database technologies (ETL), application workflow and Semantic Modelling of processes and legal limitations will permit participating LEAs share informational, investigative and experiential knowledge. The CAPER platform will be built in close collaboration with the LEA users in order to fulfil their current and forthcoming needs. The project is clearly focused on the fusion and real validation of existing state of the art to solve current bottlenecks faced by LEAs. accessed 07/17/15

As the quotes from the INDECT and CAPER websites show, Europe is not totally quiet about what it is doing.  Basically, the continental Europeans have more trust that their rights are considered by European espionage than they do by USA and/or UK espionage.  Bible prophecy suggests that that the trust that they have is misplaced (cf. Revelation 13:16-18).

On December 10, 2015, former German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg stated that the Obama Administration was in a "remarkable lame duck mood" on matters of security and technology. In that same presentation, he decried that the "tech world and political world could not be more detached from each other." He also said he wanted to stop terrorists from utilizing encryption technologies that governments could not break. He made it clear he wanted to change that. He also mentioned that the political environment was "too toxic" to resolve these and other issues in 2016. He said that there was growing anti-Americanism in Germany because of the Snowden leaks that had still not been resolved. And he blamed the USA for causing a lot of this (for some details, watch him in the video Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg and Europe’s Future).

He also stated that he wanted a strong "European voice to confront the USA strongly." And his focus was on technology.

Because of the Edward Snowden leaks, Wikileaks, other revelations, Donald Trump, and Brexit, many in Europe are outraged by actions by the USA, and also the UK. The continental Europeans considered that the USA and UK were their friends and allies, and they remain upset.

The continental Europeans will not forget this. The USA as, and will, engage in additional appeasement related to this.

Global Gateway

In order to counter China, as well as improve its trading situation and develop more digital technology, on December 1, 2021, the European Union announced the start of its Global Gateway projecct:

1 December 2021

Today, the European Commission and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy launch the Global Gateway, the new European Strategy to boost smart, clean and secure links in digital, energy and transport and strengthen health, education and research systems across the world. It stands for sustainable and trusted connections that work for people and the planet, to tackle the most pressing global challenges, from climate change and protecting the environment, to improving health security and boosting competitiveness and global supply chains. Global Gateway aims to mobilise up to €300 billion in investments between 2021 and 2027 to underpin a lasting global recovery, taking into account our partners needs and EU's own interests.

December 1, 2021

The European Union has unveiled its €300 billion ($340 billion) alternative to China’s Belt and Road initiative— an investment program the bloc claims will create “links, not dependencies.”

The aim of the EU program — called Global Gateway — is to help underpin the global recovery by mobilizing investments in digital, clean energy and transport networks, as well as boosting health, education and research systems across the world. …

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the plan offered a “‘true alternative” to China’s global infrastructure program, which has been accused of saddling some countries with huge debts since its inception in 2013. …

Von der Leyen said that countries “need better and different offers” of finance and that the EU plan — which will make investments over the next six years — will not build up “unsustainable debt levels” in partner countries.”They know we are transparent, they know it is accompanied by good governance,” von der Leyen said.

Over the past few years, China has poured billions into building roads, railways and ports worldwide to forge new trade links and diplomatic ties. As of March 2021, 139 countries had signed up to Beijing’s initiative, accounting for 40% of global GDP, according to the Council on Foreign Relations, a US think tank. The European alternative to China’s Belt and Road will be financed by a mix of €18 billion ($20 billion) in grants and €280 billion ($317 billion) in investments from member states, their development banks, the private sector and EU financing bodies, including the European Investment Bank, the European Commission said in a statement.


The European Union will invest in fiber optic cables between countries, satellite communications and cloud infrastructure to better facilitate global cooperation, data sharing and AI development. It will provide an additional €15 million ($17 million) to a program that aims to extend work on a 35,000 km (22,000 mile) highspeed fiber optic network to the rest of Latin America.

Clean energy

The bloc plans to integrate its energy systems, transition to renewables and partner with other countries to boost renewable hydrogen production. It will also work to eliminate barriers to the international trade of hydrogen. It has committed €2.4 billion ($2.7 billion) in grants to Sub-Saharan Africa and €1 billion ($1.2 billion) to North Africa to boost renewable energy production and energy efficiency.


In perhaps the most direct challenge to China’s initiative, the European Union will also invest in transport infrastructure — railways, roads, ports, airports and border crossings — to help develop countries and diversify their supply chains. It said it would provide an additional €4.6 billion ($5.2 billion) toward sustainable transport links, including establishing a trans-Mediterranean network connecting North African countries to the bloc.

This announcement mentions several times as much spending as a previous proposal mentioned (see ‘EU to Lay Out $46 Billion Technology Plan to Counter China’).

Europe looks to be serious about this.

Here is some of what EU News says about the project:

What is new in this Communication and how does it relate to previous initiatives in Connectivity? 

Global Gateway is global in scope, adapting to the needs and strategic interests of different regions. It builds on the achievements of the 2018 EU-Asia Connectivity Strategy, the recently concluded Connectivity Partnerships with Japan and India, as well as the Economic and Investment Plans for the Western Balkans, the Eastern Partnership, and the Southern Neighbourhood, but paying also particular attention to Africa, Central Asia and Latin America.

Global Gateway will be implemented in a Team Europe approach, that brings together funding by the EU, its Member States and European financial institutions, ensuring that investments can be targeted and more effective, strengthening existing initiatives and fostering new ones.

Global Gateway is values driven and based on the Union’s high social, environmental, fiscal and labour standards. It will focus on physical infrastructure – such as fibre optic cables, transport corridors, clean power transmission lines – to strengthen digital, transport and energy networks. It will also provide an enabling environment to make sure projects deliver, by offering attractive investment and business-friendly trading conditions, regulatory convergence, standardisation, supply chain integration and financial services. The EU has put in place financial and other tools to address the investment needs in sustainable infrastructure development across the world. accessed 12/02/21

The EU project is ambitious. It is intended to help insure, that it, and not China will gain dominance. This is strategically interesting in that Europe is not intending to spend as much as China, but by being more selective about where to spend its funds, it will mainly fill in ‘gaps’ that it expects will benefit it the most.

Furthermore, unlike the Chinese plan, the European one involves infrastructure around data and communications technology.

The Bible shows that economically as the “daughter of Babylon” Europe will rise up in this century–(cf. Revelation chapters 17 & 18)–and this project is another step in that direction.

European Military Technology

Europe wants to increase its space and military technology::

European Commission seeks to boost space spending

6 June 2018

Commissioner Elżbieta Bieńkowska detailed the proposal in a press conference in Brussels.

“Europe is a space power and intends to remain a space power,” she said.

What does the EU want to do in space?

Brussels wants to tighten and, in its words, streamline the management of activities like Galileo and Copernicus.

This would involve bringing all Union space activity under one body, which the Commission is calling the “EU Agency for the Space Programme”. It would be a beefed-up version of the Prague-based office that currently supervises only Galileo.

Europe is taking steps. They also are into surveillance.

It is not that the Europeans do not have a double-standard like the US or the UK, but the biblical reality is that they are prophesied to do surveillance as that would be consistent with the following:

15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.  (Revelation 13:15-18)

Those in the USA, Canada (whose espionage was also highlighted by Edward Snowden), and UK may hope that the continental Europeans will simply overlook all of their espionage, yet the time will come when the Europeans will take successful military actions against the USA, Canada, and their Anglo-Saxon allies (cf. Daniel 11:39) and the world will marvel at the success of the European actions (Revelation 13:4).

Europe is moving further ahead for military technology:

EU ploughing MILLIONS of YOUR cash into military for 'defence revolution'

BRUSSELS plans to pump millions of pounds of European taxpayers' money into a defence research project that could help the EU beat the US and China to key military developments.

As Brussels pushes ahead on with its plans for closer integration on defence, a proposal by the European Commission could see £78million (€90m) put into defence research by 2019.

Jorge Domecq, chief executive of the European Defence Agency, said the project is just the start in a global arms race that critics fear would bolster a new EU army at the expense of the existing NATO alliance. ...

He claimed the move was a “revolution” for the EU and was backed by the vast majority of European citizens who he said were in favour of the 28-member bloc “intervening more in security and defence policy”.The Brussels chief said: “For the first time in its history, the EU is paving the way…for a substantive defence research programme in the next multiannual financial framework.”This means using the EU budget for defence, something that was unthinkable as recently as three years ago.”He said the budget was an “essential prerequisite to develop the capabilities of the future and thus to provide for our citizen’s security”.  …

In his state of the union address earlier this month, European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker called for EU countries “to pool their defence capabilities in the form of a permanent structured co-operation”, and proposed a European Defence Fund by the end of the year. 09/28/16

Although Jorge Domecq claims this was “unthinkable as recently as three years ago,” I have been warning since last decade that the Europeans were going to develop military technology. And that is happening. Europe has decided it needs to be able to rely on its military for its peoples’ ‘security’ (as far as the EU State of the Union goes, watch the video Chaotic ‘State of the European Union’).

Notice something I had published last decade:

Because the deal of Daniel 9:27 has not been made (at least not publicly), even if it were made today, the end (meaning the beginning of the great tribulation and the last 3 ½ years before the second coming) cannot happen prior to 2013.  (If you add 3 ½ years from this book’s publication date, you end up in the year 2013.)

Hence, this appears to be additional biblical evidence that the end will not come in 2012 as many have publicly indicated.  However, if the deal is made soon, the end may come shortly after the Mayan 2012 date.

And while many do not consider that the European Union is much of a military power that perception is likely to change in or after 2013.

Why 2013 or after?

In 2013, the Europeans are planning on having their own global positioning system (GPS), called Galileo, available for military applications [European Parliament Approves Military Use of Galileo Satellite.  DPA news agency.  Deutsche Welle - July 10, 2008.,2144,3474226,00.html viewed 05/14/09].  This will allow the Europeans to track the world and attack others without relying on the U.S.A.’s GPS.  This will be the first time in the 21st century that Europeans will be able to have that type of independent military capability.

Furthermore, according to a 2009 report from the U.S. government, the U.S. Air Force may have to start relying on the European Galileo system (at least to a degree) beginning in 2013, as the U.S. GPS capabilities are expected to deteriorate by then [Lytle JM.  US says GPS satellite coverage may fail soon. Maintenance delays mean EU’s Galileo may step in.  TechRadar UK - May 14, 2009. viewed 05/17/09] (other problems are also appearing in the newer U.S. satellites [Pasztor A.  GPS Satellite Glitches Fuel Concern on Next Generation.  Wall Street Journal, June 17, 2009 viewed 06/17/09]). Because the Europeans will be able to control Galileo, they will also likely be capable of derailing certain sophisticated U.S. military applications.  This will give the Europeans a unique defensive (as well as offensive) capability that no others on the planet will have.

But there is more.  The Europeans now also have the world’s leading-edge physics project called the Large Hadron Collider (the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator) [Atkins W. Last magnet lowered into Large Hadron Collider.  02 May 2009.  iTWire. viewed 05/15/09]. It was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (also referred to as CERN), and is apt to provide the Europeans with unique military capabilities in several years.   No other nation or group of nations will have complete access to what will develop from the Large Hadron Collider.

The Bible is clear that the final “Beast power” (which will be primarily European) will have such unique military capabilities that the entire world will marvel (cf. Revelation 13:3–4). (Thiel B. 2012 And the Rise of the Secret Sect. Nazarene Books, 2009)

When I was considering prophecies about the end time destruction of the strongest military (Daniel 11:39; see also USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses) the USA, I wondered how that could come about. That is part of why I wrote the following last decade at this news page:

The truth is that Europa is getting ready to be able to pass the USA technologically ...  Soon Europa will be ready militarily (though it will probably not emphasize that much publicly as I believe that a surprise attack is more their historical style).  And Europa is currently working on its own “GPS” called Galileo which will enable it to by-pass US systems and controls. (Thiel B. Europa Starting to Pass the USA Technologically. COGwriter, April 6, 2008)

The Large Hadron Collider set one or more speed records in 2009 (Europe’s Large Hadron Collider Sets Another Record, USA is Losing Lead in Physics).  It is likely to set other records and help scientists learn more about physics in 2010.  And this data may lead to the development of military technology of unbelievable power–but for the Europeans. (Thiel B. Antimatter, CERN’s Collider, and Military Applications. COGwriter, December 27, 2009)

The Bible itself indicates that even after it happens, the rise of this military power will cause the world to marvel:

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)

Although the Bible says that the final European King of the North Beast power will have a great army (Daniel 11:25), manpower alone did not seem to be enough for the defeat of the USA. But when you add technology ...

France Has Technology, Wants to Increase It, and Wants to Support Europe

The French press reported the following (in French, the first portion is a machine-translation of the source into English):

20 October 2017

The Strategic Defense Review was presented last week to the President of the Republic at a Defense Council. It is intended to set the strategic framework for the elaboration of the next Military Planning Law (LPM) 2019-2025, which should bring our defense effort to 2% of GDP by 2025.

The President of the Republic had entrusted to the Minister of Armies, Florence Parly, on June 29, the responsibility of conducting a Strategic Review of defense and national security. This review examines the interests of France, its ambition for defense and deduces the skills required primarily for our armies, particularly in terms of equipment.

From this 111 – page document we retain the reaffirmation of the industrial and technological ambition of our country. France enjoys a status of great technological power thanks to a solid industrial and technological defense base, which includes a dozen major groups, more than 4000 SMEs and relies on 200 000 jobs in France. Its vitality guarantees the armies in the long term access to equipment at the best level. ” The maintenance of a high industrial and technological ambition is therefore an issue of sovereignty and a pillar of our strategic autonomy ,” says the report.

Preparing for the future is a key to this technological performance: devoting high funding to research and upstream studies will ensure the capacity of the French defense ecosystem to maintain its position on the international scene and to produce the equipment for which forces will need. At the same time, the report highlights the importance of pursuing a comprehensive policy of support for innovation.


La Revue stratégique de défense a été présentée la semaine dernière au Président de la République lors d’un Conseil de défense. Elle est destinée à fixer le cadre stratégique de l’élaboration de la prochaine Loi de programmation militaire (LPM) 2019-2025, qui doit porter notre effort de défense à 2% du PIB à l’horizon 2025.

Le président de la République avait confié à la ministre des Armées, Florence Parly, le 29 juin dernier, la responsabilité de conduire une Revue stratégique de défense et de sécurité nationale. Cette revue examine les intérêts de la France, son ambition pour sa défense et en déduit les aptitudes prioritairement requises pour nos armées, notamment en matière d’équipements.

Nous retenons de ce document de 111 pages la réaffirmation de l’ambition industrielle et technologique de notre pays. La France jouit d’un statut de grande puissance technologique grâce à une base industrielle et technologique de défense solide, qui regroupe une dizaine de grands groupes, plus de 4000 PME et s’appuie sur 200 000 emplois en France. Sa vitalité garantit aux armées dans la durée l’accès à des équipements au meilleur niveau. « L’entretien d’une ambition industrielle et technologique élevée est donc un enjeu de souveraineté et un pilier de notre autonomie stratégique », souligne le rapport.

La préparation de l’avenir est une clé de cette performance technologique : consacrer des financements élevés à la recherche et aux études amont garantira la capacité de l’écosystème français de défense à maintenir son positionnement sur la scène internationale et à produire les équipements dont les forces auront besoin. En parallèle, le rapport met en avant l’importance de la poursuite d’une politique globale de soutien à l’innovation.

Notice the technology is considered to be a key aspect of France’s current and future military. Regular readers are aware that since last decade, I have warned that technology would be key to the coming military success of the European King of the North Beast power.

Lest everyone think that France alone is intending to keep its technology like it has in the past, notice some of what a German source reported about the French plan:

BERLIN/PARIS (Own report) – German government advisors are praising the French government’s new military policy document (“Revue stratégique”) and are calling for accelerating the expansion of German-French military and arms cooperation. With this document, Paris is opening itself up “to cooperation in Europe, to a degree previously unknown,” according to the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP), thus offering the possibility for rapid progress in the formation of European armed forces. France, however, has to “show that it can let loose, i.e. cooperate without having to dominate.” The DGAP is also calling on the French arms industry to open up. In this field, ambitious cooperation projects are only making slow progress, such as the KNDS – a merger of the German tank producer Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) und Nexter Defense Systems. KNDS is supposed to develop a replacement for the Leopard 2 and Leclerc battle tanks but internal rivalries are slowing the project. Observers are placing their hopes on the development of a German-French jet fighter, which could enable Europe’s arms industry to become “independent of US companies” and achieve “European autonomy,” according to the DGAP.

Strategic Culture

Last Friday, the French defense ministry published its new “Revue stratégique”, a document outlining the basis for France’s future military policy, particularly concerning its upcoming military planning law (Loi de programmation militaire 2019-2025). On the one hand, the document declares that the – national – “safeguard of a complete and balanced armed forces model is indispensable” to guarantee “France’s national independence, strategic autonomy and freedom of action.”[1] On the other hand, however, it attaches great importance to a “stronger Europe” that can effectively defy “common challenges.” According to the document, “France seeks to strengthen the European defense,” and this also demands “a strategic culture shared by the Europeans.” This would mean that “at the beginning of the coming decade, the Europeans” must have a common defense doctrine and must be able to “jointly intervene credible manner.” This demands launching a “European intervention initiative” (“Initiative européenne d’intervention”), according to Paris’ Ministère des Armées.

“Let Loose”

German government advisors appear positively surprised. With this document, Paris is opening itself up “to cooperation in Europe to a degree previously unknown,” and is clearly becoming “more pragmatic,” the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) declared.[2] The French armed forces are indeed “overstretched,” and even though they can still initiate operations on their own, they can no longer finish them alone. Owning up to this “reality” opens new “areas of action” for multinational cooperation on the continent. Macron’s “idea of a new European intervention force, to be mustered according to the respective mission conditions” is motivated by “pragmatism.” 10/19/17

Notice that the Germans are surprised at how much the French are now willing to cooperate. Emmanuel Macron is a factor here. Also notice that the intention is to have a European force independent of the USA.

European Technology is Going to Help the Beast Rise Up

Europe is developing technology. Events such as the Brexti and the election of Donald Trump are affecting Europe.

The Bible is clear that a warring power will arise in Europe. Based upon what is happening in the world today, combined with various scriptures, it looks like technology will be how the final Beast power will be successful.

Now, the Bible shows that this will not last and ultimately Europe will be disturbed by (Daniel 11:44) and destroyed by a Eurasian power (Joel 2:2-9; Revelation 16:12-16) led by, to a significant degree, Russia (see Russia: Its Origins and Prophesied Future and The Eurasian Union, the Kings of the East, and Bible Prophecy). I believe that the Russians, Chinese, and/or their allies will learn how to neutralize the effectiveness of European technology, something that the King of the South power thought it could do, but something that the 'kings of the east' (Revelation 16:12; Joel 2:2-9) will be able to do. That later destruction suggests, to me at least, that Europe will rely too much on technology.

But the time will be when the European Beast power will rise up. We are seeing a rise in European technology, and technology with military applications.

Remember that the Bible teaches that a warring European power will rise up and be successful. Let's close with Revelation 13:4:

4 “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:4)

While I do not believe Europe will exclusively use technology, succesful technology would seem to why the world will marvel at the coming Beast power. The European Beast is rising up. We are getting closer to the time of the end. European espionage and technology are be part of that.
