As foretold here, more calls for a European army! Guttenberg: ‘There will be a terrible awakening for Europe’

Coat of arms of the European Union Military Committee (Ssolbergj)


European leaders, including in Germany, are calling for a European army:

DONALD Trump’s election victory – along with Brexit in the UK- will speed up the plans for a European army, according to Germany’s defence minister Ursula von der Leyen.

11 November 2016

Her comments were echoed by the EU’s foreign policy chief in Brussels who went so far as to call for a single EU command for the bloc’s armies, navies and air forces.”Europe needs the common political will for more security policy relevance. The outcome of the election in America could provide an additional impetus,” she wrote in a newspaper in her homeland.”The Brexit decision and the election in the United States have set a new course for Europe.””It difficult for Germany and Europe, on the day after the election, to assess what to expect from a Trump presidency,” she remarked, predicting that initially America would turn inward “to heal the tremendous internal turmoil in the country.”

But while Germany would press for an EU Army, she said the continent’s security would continue to depend on America and NATO.

Germany as “a great nation in the centre of Europe”, would have to be “more self-reliant on security issues” – interpreted as meaning that she intends to boost defence spending in a country that has been largely pacifistic as a result of the catastrophic wars it fought and lost in the last century.

Von der Leyen spoke of “building a common security and defence organisation” to stabilise African and Middle East countries that would stem refugee flows.

“This is one of the central lessons of the refugee crisis. If we do not take care of the problems, then, at some point,we will face the consequences”, she said.

Speaking the same day (THR) at a meeting of the European Defence Agency in Brussels, Federica Mogherini, the EU foreign policy chief, said: “It is starting to be clear to everyone – that we can only succeed in providing security to our citizens if we work together as a true Union, with the full potential of a super power, in the field of security and defence.”

This should not come as surprise to regular reader of this page. Since 2015, I have written that Donald Trump’s rise would be a factor in Europe deciding it needs more unity and its own army.

Consider also something posted here one day BEFORE the US election:

If Donald Trump is elected, the Germans will see this as proof that they cannot rely on the USA for their defense, etc. Germany will push for a European army. Some in Europe actually want Donald Trump to win for this basic reason (see ‘Why Europe Secretly Roots For Donald Trump’?). (Thiel B. Germans opposed to Donald Trump, but not too optimistic about Hillary Clinton. COGwriter, November 7, 2016)

Notice also the following from the day AFTER the election:

10 November 2016

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.

“Talking about security we need a different way of organizing a European defense … the French National Assembly in 1954 prevented the European community of defense.”

“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. …

The EU ministers are expected to meet in Brussels on Monday to discuss plans to strengthen the EU military cooperation and capabilities.

European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker is telling the Europeans that:

  1. The Europeans need their own military
  2. After the election of Donald Trump it is needed now
  3. The USA is not to be relied upon
  4. The world is changing
  5. And Europe must arise to become a military power on its own.

Regular readers of this page realize that I have been warning about this for a long time.

Here is part of an interview in German, followed by a machine-translated version into English:

Donnerstag, 10.11.2016, 18:39

FOCUS Online: Donald Trump wird der nächste Präsident der USA. Was wird sich dadurch ändern?

Edmund Stoiber: Viel – vor allem für Europa.

FOCUS Online: Für Europa? Trump will doch erstmal die USA abschotten und dort ein Konjunkturprogramm starten. …

Stoiber: Aber er wird auch neue Akzente in der Außenpolitik setzen. Ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass sich jetzt das Verhältnis Amerikas zu Russland ändert. Das persönliche Klima zwischen Obama und Putin war ja sehr frostig.

FOCUS Online: Und Trump kann das besser?

FOCUS Online: Eine Belebung der Russland-Beziehungen könnte auch für Europa Vorteile bringen. Ist Trump am Ende besser für Europa als es Clinton gewesen wäre?

“Amerika zieht sich als Weltpolizist weiter zurück – Europa muss seine Interessen durchsetzen”

Stoiber: Das lässt sich natürlich noch nicht mit Bestimmtheit sagen, aber es ist möglich. Für Europa ist diese Wahl eine echte Wende. Wir werden künftig viel mehr Verantwortung übernehmen müssen als bisher, weil Trump sich vor allem auf die USA konzentrieren wird. Amerika wird sich ein Stück weit aus der übergreifenden Weltpolitik zurückziehen und nur noch seine eigenen Interessen vertreten. Hillary Clinton wäre aber auch in diese Richtung gegangen, es hat schon unter Obama angefangen. Amerika wird sich als Weltpolizist und auch als Verfechter des freien Welthandels weiter zurückziehen. Da muss Europa jetzt selbst seine Interessen durchsetzen.

FOCUS Online: Was heißt das genau?

Stoiber: Die europäischen Staaten müssen selbst für eine größere Sicherheit sorgen – auch militärisch. Unsere Rüstungsausgaben werden steigen müssen, wenn der Schutzschirm der USA dünner wird. Und wir müssen das Problem der Migranten aus Afrika selber lösen. Da hilft uns keiner.

FOCUS Online: Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States. What will change?

Edmund Stoiber: Much – especially for Europe.

FOCUS Online: For Europe? Trump wants first to cut the US and start a stimulus program there. …

FOCUS Online: … Is Trump better for Europe than Clinton had been?

“America is retiring as a world policeman – Europe has to make a difference”

Stoiber: That is of course not yet say with certainty, but it is possible. This choice is a real change for Europe. In the future, we will have to take a lot more responsibility than before, because Trump will focus on the US in particular. America will retreat a bit from the overarching world policy and will only defend its own interests. Hillary Clinton would be gone in this direction, it has already begun under Obama. America will continue to withdraw as a world policeman and also as a champion of free world trade. Europe must now make its own interests.

FOCUS Online: What does that mean?

Stoiber: European countries must themselves ensure greater security – militarily. Our armament spending will have to go up as the US screen becomes thinner. And we must solve the problem of migrants from Africa themselves. No one can help us.

Notice Herr Stoiber is saying that no one can help Europe, thus strongly implying that Europe must now rise up.

The front cover of the German publication Der Spiegel today has a large ‘comet’ in the shape of Donald Trump’s head cascading towards a smaller planet earth with the headline, Das Ende Der Welt (wir wir sie kennen), which someone I know translated it into English as “The End of the World (as we know it).”

Europeans, particularly German Europeans, see the election of Donald Trump as a significant turning point.

Notice also the following news item in German, followed by a machine-translated version into English:

yeDer Ausgang der US-Wahl sendet Schockwellen rund um den Globus. Für BILD analysiert Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg die Folgen des Wahlsiegs von Donald Trump: Für Europa werde es ein grauenvolles Erwachen geben. (Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg | »Ein grauenvolles Erwachen für Europa! BLD – Nov 9, 2016)

Yet the outcome of the US election sends shock waves around the globe. For BILD, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg analyzes the consequences of Donald Trump’s election victory: there will be a terrible awakening for Europe.

Former German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg is correct–there will be a TERRIBLE AWAKENING FOR EUROPE. Europe will arise to become the Beast of Revelation!

In December 2015, Herr Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg called Donald Trump “that blonde lunatic named Donald” (Wish List or Reality? Digital Trends in 2016 | Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg | hub conference. Posted December 11, 2015; watch also Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg and Europe’s Future).

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, former German Defense Minister, warns of an erosion in transatlantic trust, exacerbated by the U.S. presidential-election season. The campaign anthem will be “forget Europe,” he says—and it won’t come only from Donald Trump. …

There is growing division between U.S. and European leaders. Transatlantic ties depend on common values.

We in the Church of God have warned for decades that a European military power would arise and one day eliminate the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies like Canada and the United Kingdom.

We are getting closer to that reality.

How did we know?

Well for one reason, the Bible shows that Europe will end up with a large army:

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

The “he” above is the European King of the North Beast power.

The Bible says that this Beast power will reorganize and is going to surprise the world with its military success:

12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. (Revelation 17:12-13)

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)

The world will marvel because it did not think that the European Beast, King of the North, power could possibly beat the USA militarily.

Beat the USA militarily?


The following prophecy is one that shows the coming defeat of the USA:

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)

The “he” above is the European King of the North Beast power. The power with the strongest military fortresses in the 21st century is presently the USA. But it will be defeated by Europe (see also USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses).

The time will come when the USA is no more (watch also the recent sermon: Do these 7 prophesies point to the end of the USA?).

As Europe looks towards the USA, it more and more sees the need for its own army. This will have terrible consequences for the USA (Daniel 11:39) and also Europe itself (Daniel 11:44-45; Revelation 17:14).

Much is happening on the world scene that align with properly understood biblical prophecies.
