Europe’s ‘Financial Hurricane About to Hit’?

Europa Woman Riding the Beast Coin


In its latest TW News & Prophecy, the Living Church of God reported:

“EU’s Financial Hurricane Is About to Hit,” read a sobering headline in this week’s Times. This week something critical happened in reaction to leaked information that the EU would allow Greece to redeem some of their bonds at their current financial status–50% less than their original worth. The news scared Italian investors with the notion that the same could happen to them. The result? Italian bonds immediately dropped to 70% and 80% of their value. For a small nation this would be of little concern, but Italy holds an unusually high amount of bonds–third in the world behind the U.S. and Japan. All this translates into the reality that Italy’s financial crisis is much more acute than originally thought.

According to experts, “For if the flow of money out of the Italian bond market accelerates through the summer, the crisis could spin out of control, causing a break-up of the euro as early as September or October, the ‘financial hurricane season’ when serious financial disruptions generally occur” (Times, July 13, 2011). The resulting call is for the rapid formation of a Eurozone-wide financial union, or possibly an EU-wide union that would include nations like Britain who are not part of the Euro. It also sounds like the September-October period may be the deadline.

Students of Bible Prophecy understand that there must eventually be a strong financial union between certain nations and kingdoms in Europe for the creation of the Beast power to occur (Revelation 17:12-13). Just who will be part of this union is a big question that may be answered sooner than many may have anticipated.

Notice something from the news today that also emphasizes the problem, as well as something else that differs from the USA:

Euro crisis could cause global markets to crash

Markets around the world could crash by more than a third if Europe fails to resolve its debt crisis, Deutsche Bank analysts have warned.

Italian MPs approve tough budget – BBC 16 July 2011

Unlike the USA that intentionally added a lot of debt throughout the recession and so-called “recovery”, the Europeans have shied away from those types of debt increases, other than those they have felt have been necessary to keep countries out of default (as well as the “usual” budget deficits).  Also, while the reforms and cuts may not have gone far enough, various austerity programs have now been approved by most of the so-called PIIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain) in Europe.   And more may be needed.

The Bible shows that Europe must be restructured (Revelation 17:12-13)–but that particular restructure that Revelation refers to is probably not going to happen for several years.  However, to get to that point, there likely will be a variety of changes in what the EU is and how it is supposed to work.  While Europe will always have fragility issues per Daniel 2:42-43, it will also be much more unified than it is today–as it would seem to have to be to fulfill certain aspects of Bible prophecy.
