European apprehensions and stereotypes

Symbol of European “Babylon”


A while back, there was a report that many Europeans have been disillusioned with the EU and hold to a variety of stereotypes:

Public faith in European unity has slumped as people become increasingly gloomy about economic conditions, according to Washington-based Pew Institute…The respected Washington-based Pew Research Centre warned that support for the EU has slid over the last 12 months, from 60% in 2012 to just 45% this year…

National stereotypes

The survey also polled people’s views on their fellow European nations. This revealed that Europeans feel that their nation is the “most compassionate”, while many chose Germany as the “least compassionate” (although the UK was the favourite pick for both Germans and the French).

In a display of Gallic insouciance, the French identified themselves as both the ‘most arrogant’ and ‘least arrogant’.

Germany was identified as the most trustworthy country by seven nations, apart from the Greeks, who chose Greece.

Europe itself has problems and does not adhere well together–yet the Bible foretold that as well in Daniel 2:41-43.

Europe also has major issues with Muslims and that will one day lead to major problems and conflict (cf. Daniel 11:40-43).

Europe currently has real problems with the UK and the situation does not seem to be getting better:

May and Juncker were all smiles after their Downing Street meeting but a German paper has revealed how it really went. Juncker was so alarmed he quickly phoned Merkel to warn her that May was ‘living in another galaxy.’

1 May 2017

President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker accused British Prime Minister Theresa May of being “delusional” over her demands for Brexit, German newspaper “Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung” reported on Sunday.

May dined with key European Union figures at 10 Downing Street on Wednesday, but details of just how poorly the meeting went were only now revealed by the paper, which was briefed by a senior Commission source.

“I leave Downing Street 10 times more skeptical than I was before,” Juncker reportedly told May at the end of the meeting.

May made no compromises over the two hour meeting, insisting that a free trade agreement be negotiated from the start, “Frankfurter Allgemeine” reported. The EU has repeatedly said a free trade agreement could only be negotiated once the terms of separation are agreed upon. …

Juncker called German Chancellor Angela Merkel early the following morning, telling her that May was “living in a different galaxy”, prompting Merkel to warn May against her illusions.

“A third-party state cannot enjoy the same advantages or be better positioned than an EU member. I have the feeling that some people in Britain maintain illusions in this regard. They’re wasting their time,” Merkel told the German parliament on Thursday.

May spoke with the BBC on Sunday, adopting a tough stance and repeating her insistence that no deal would be better than a bad deal.

“No, look, I’m not in a different galaxy,” May told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show. “But I think what this shows and what some of the other comments we’ve seen coming from European leaders shows is that there are going to be times when these negotiations are going to be tough.”  …

Meanwhile former British Prime Minister Tony Blair announced on Monday that he was reentering domestic politics to fight against Brexit. …

On Saturday leaders from the 27 remaining EU states unanimously agreed on guidelines for negotiations on the UK’s divorce from the bloc.

On Saturday, after seeing the results of the EU agreement on guidelines, I made the following video: Brexit and the fate of Northern Ireland, Gibraltar, the UK, and the USA. I had previously reported Angela Merkel’s comments (see Merkel does not want UK to get easy Brexit; Trump wants to renegotiate NAFTA) and have long suspected that Tony Blair would get involved with the EU again (see Is Tony Blair Apocalyptic?), but I had not heard that the EU’s Jean-Claude Juncker said that Theresa May was “delusional” and “living in a different galaxy.”

UPDATE 2:30 pm PDT. Apparently Theresa May believes some accounts are inaccurate:

May 1, 2017

Theresa May has dismissed as “Brussels gossip” an account of a dinner with EC President Jean-Claude Juncker, published in a German newspaper.

The pair reportedly clashed over Mrs May’s desire to make Brexit “a success” and whether the issue of protecting the rights of expat UK and EU nationals could be agreed as early as June.

The Frankfurter Allgemeine claims Mr Juncker said: “I leave… 10 times more sceptical than I was before.”

But Mrs May said it was “constructive”.

And she told the BBC’s Ben Wright: “I have to say from what I’ve seen of this account I think it’s Brussels gossip.”

While Angela Merkel did make negative comments, apparently Jean-Claude Juncker did not make certain comments attributed to him.

Europe sees itself as the power all should want to support, and is highly insulted that the UK voted to leave its embrace.

Europe has tended to have similarities to the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11 (see EU’s Fragile Tower of Babel) and sometimes has used it as a reference as the poster at the beginning of this article shows. The term Babylon seems to derive from Babel and the Bible indicates that the end time Babylon will be European (cf. Revelation 17) (see also the video Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?).

Specifically see the following scriptures, which have European (cf. Daniel 7:2-7, Joshua 9:1, 23:4; Ezekiel 47:15) end time prophetic connections:

41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. (Daniel 2:41-43)

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)

Those passages show a fragile coalition that will have to likely reorganize at least two more times according to the Bible. Europe ultimately will have ten major leaders who will then turn their power over to a single leader. And there seem to be a lot of reorganization steps on the way before those two reorganizations take place.

Eventually, Europe will end up with a dictatorial leader (Revelation 13)–and one with militaristic objectives.

The Bible tells of a time when a smooth talker will gain the confidence of the Europeans and lead them in ways that they had not realized. Below are a few short statements in the New Living Translation ® (NLT) for clarity, followed by the longer passages in the NKJV for additional details:

23 At the end of their rule, when their sin is at its height, a fierce king, a master of intrigue, will rise to power….25 He will be a master of deception and will become arrogant; (Daniel 8:23,25a NLT)

22 “The next to come to power will be a despicable man who is not in line for royal succession. He will slip in when least expected and take over the kingdom by flattery and intrigue. 22 Before him great armies will be swept away, including a covenant prince. 23 With deceitful promises, he will make various alliances. (Daniel 11:21-23 NLT)

23 “And in the latter time of their kingdom,
When the transgressors have reached their fullness,
A king shall arise,
Having fierce features,
Who understands sinister schemes.
24 His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power;
He shall destroy fearfully,
And shall prosper and thrive;
He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people.

25 “Through his cunning
He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule;
And he shall exalt himself in his heart.
He shall destroy many in their prosperity.
He shall even rise against the Prince of princes;
But he shall be broken without human means. (Daniel 8:23-25 NKJV)

23 “Thus he said:

‘The fourth beast shall be
A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces.
24 The ten horns are ten kings
Who shall arise from this kingdom.
And another shall rise after them;
He shall be different from the first ones,
And shall subdue three kings.
25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High…(Daniel 7:23-25 NKJV)

21 And in his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue. 22 With the force of a flood they shall be swept away from before him and be broken, and also the prince of the covenant. 23 And after the league is made with him he shall act deceitfully, for he shall come up and become strong with a small number of people. 24 He shall enter peaceably, even into the richest places of the province; and he shall do what his fathers have not done, nor his forefathers: he shall disperse among them the plunder, spoil, and riches; and he shall devise his plans against the strongholds, but only for a time. (Daniel 11:21-24 NKJV)

And while now is not quite yet the dictator’s time, despite expected unification problems (Daniel 2:40-43), a major dictator in Europe will rise up (Revelation 13:1-8), Europe will reorganize (Revelation 17:12-13), and become the final King of the North, European Beast power of Bible prophecy (Daniel 11:21-44).

And this will not be good for the United States of America nor the British (not their Anglo-allies like Canada, Australia, or New Zealand), and ultimately not the Europeans (Revelation 18:1-8). The current financial problems, however, will contribute to the fulfillment of many scriptures and the Europeans, who have more problems ahead, will end up better financially, for a time, than most alive today believe (Revelation 18).

Brexit and the fate of Northern Ireland, Gibraltar, the UK, and the USA On April 29, 2017, 27 of the nations of the European Union agreed to certain guidelines for the negotiations with the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland which gave its notice to leave on March 29, 2017.

Forbes’ Brexit Monster is the Beast of Revelation Various ones have been properly convinced that there is a plan for a European superstate.
