Germany’s Merkel re-elected–what is ahead for Germany?


Angela Merkel was re-elected today:

December 17, 2013

BERLIN—Germany’s lower house of parliament on Tuesday formally re-elected Angela Merkel as chancellor with 74% of the vote, clearing the last hurdle for a new government to take power nearly three months after September’s elections. Mrs. Merkel received the votes of 462 members of parliament, far more than the 316 she needed.

Angela Merkel is a big backer of the European Union.  She has encouraged Germany to use its economic wealth to attempt to keep the EU together and mold it more into a type of confederation that Germany would like to manage.

I wrote an article titled Germany’s Assyrian Roots Throughout History which explains why from a biblical and historical perspective, that many in the German-speaking lands in Central Europe seem to have descended from ancient Assyria.

So what is ahead for Assyria’s German descendants?

Eventually it will help lead a power known as the Beast of the sea from Revelation 13.  This will be a power with massive economic control.

As far as prophecies that mention Assyria, the longest prophecy involving Assyria in the Bible seems to be Isaiah 10:5-27. And this seems to be directed towards the modern Germanic and perhaps other peoples in Europe (note: since it is the “king of Assyria” who is specifically mentioned in certain portions of Isaiah 10, it may be that many of the specifics are directed towards this end time king himself–while other parts of it are related to the peoples that support him–which are expected to include also non-Germanic ones).

Here is the first portion of it:

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)

In the above passages, we learn that God will use Assyria to punish Jerusalem and Samaria. Other than the German tendency to cut off various nations in WWI and WWII, there are certain specifics that tie this in with the end time European power that God is going to use.

Interestingly, Global Research recently published a report consistent with Isaiah 10:5-11:

Germany is making intensive preparations to conduct new wars to secure resources. This was the unmistakable message of a lead article in Germany’s business newspaper Handelsblatt, “Expedition Resources: Germany’s new course.”

The very same business circles that financed Hitler are again banging the war drums. The article cites an interview with Dierk Paskert, the manager of the Resource Alliance founded in 2011. Members of the alliance include Volkswagen, ThyssenKrupp, Bayer and BASF—firms that either directly supported Nazi war plans, or whose predecessors did.…Paskert makes clear that the German bourgeoisie is willing to use military force to secure such resources against its rivals…

The return of aggressive German imperialism initiates a new stage of inter-imperialist conflict, raising the threat of a Third World War…

The Handelsblatt bluntly states that the German army will be rebuilt “in order to be used all over the world.” The vast majority of the German population is vehemently opposed to militarism. The fact that the Handelsblatt can so publicly formulate the goals of the German bourgeoisie is above all a devastating indictment of the Green Party, the Social Democratic Party and the Left Party. (Stern J. The Return of German Imperialism. Global Research, 21 February 2013

Notice that the above states that the vast majority of Germans do not want to be militaristic, but that voices are calling for that anyway–just like Isaiah 10:7 prophecies.  Notice that some suspect that this could lead to WWIII.

As Isaiah 10:10-11 suggests, one aspect of this is that Assyria is going to invade Jerusalem.

Now notice that someone that appears to be involved in doing the same thing:

31 And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. (Daniel 11:31)

The ‘he’ above is the final King of the North, since he and an Assyrian group takeover Jerusalem (where the future “daily sacrifices” are expected to take place), this suggests an important tie.  This leader, thus, is male.

Next notice, someone that appears to be involved in the same acts:

26…And the people of the prince who is to come
Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.
The end of it shall be with a flood,
And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate. (Daniel 9:26-27)

The ‘prince’ that is originally involved in the covenant in vs. 27, is the one who later becomes a ‘king’ and breaks it in Daniel 9:27 and 11:31.

With the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 70 A.D., the offering of the previously prescribed sanctuary sacrifices ceased in Judaism. The people that caused this to happen were the armies of the old Roman Empire. The soldiers in the Roman Empire were mainly European, with many of Germanic heritage (at that time in history, many of the leaders were from South Germany: Bavaria and probably Austria). Since the ‘prince’ comes from a people that destroyed the city of Jerusalem and stop its sanctuary practices, the prince must have come from one of the soldiering peoples of the old Roman Empire. This would be a European individual, probably from central Europe, possibly consisting of multiple European ethnicities (for more details, also view the YouTube video Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?).

This does not absolutely prove that the individual must be German, but this certainly seems to be supportive of that view.

Notice comments about some the beasts in Daniel:

40 And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. 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 2:40-43)

It is recognized by most theological scholars that the fourth beast was historically the ancient Roman Empire, apparently something that forms a union that appears to be unstable is the final end time empire. This sounds a lot like what is developing in Europe right now–and that is highly dependent on the economic wealth of Germany.

In Revelation 17 there is a passage of interest:

10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. 11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition. (Revelation 17:10-11)

The Philadelphia portion of the Church of God historically has pointed mainly to Franco-German leaders (sometimes referred to as Holy Roman Emperors) representing each of those horns. Hence, since European (mainly Germanic) leaders/empires seem to have been the first five/six of these kings historically, it would be logical to conclude that a likely Germanic leader would be the final one (the King of the North) as well.

Other biblical passages, such as Isaiah 10:12, 24-26, indicate that the rule of the king of Assyria will only be temporary; while scriptures in Daniel (11:40-44) show that the King of the North’s reign will also be temporary.

And while Angela Merkel is not and cannot be him, she has, and probably will continue, to help pave the way for his rising up.

That being said, all is NOT negative about what will happen to the descendants of Assyria.  Notice the following:

24 In that day Israel will be one of three with Egypt and Assyria — a blessing in the midst of the land, 25 whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, “Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.” (Isaiah 19:24-25)

God has a plan for the Germanic people, and that plan includes them being an important part of His Kingdom.
