Greece gets at least part of its way and is still in the Eurozone

Greece’s Alexis Tsipras


Greece has been able to make a deal related to its debt:

February 21, 2015

The Greek prime minister says a new agreement with European leaders to extend his country’s debt-repayment plan – the Greek “bailout” – was an important success, but now “real difficulties” lie ahead.

“We won a battle, but not the war,” Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Saturday. The agreement reached Friday gives Greece an extra four months to repay its loans, in return for Athens’ pledge to spell out an acceptable plan of economic reforms by Monday.

“The difficulties – the real difficulties – lie ahead of us,” Tsipras said on national television.

No details of the reform plan due on Monday were disclosed. The prime minister was meeting with his Cabinet Saturday to review proposals.

The continuation of eurozone funding to Greece will avert possible bankruptcy and keep the euro currency in use in Greece. In return, Athens’ request for a six-month debt extension was trimmed to four months, and the framework for future negotiations remains in place.

Greece had wanted to end its supervision by the European “troika” – the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank, and European Commission – but the three entities will continue to monitor the country’s compliance with austerity measures and economic reforms.

This should not be a surprise to regular readers of this Church of God news page.

Late last month, I had a post titled Merkel says no debt forgiveness for Greece: What will happen?  Here is some of what I wrote back then:

So what is next?

The economic and political reality is that Greece is not is a position to pay the debt back as agreed. Germany is likely to have to either renegotiate or at least accept delays in payment from Greece.

And that has now happened.  Expect more negotiations with Greece.  Also, there will be changes in Europe.

The Bible tells of a rise of a European power composed of strong and weak parts that do not get along particularly well:

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)

The rising European Union certain is a mixture like that and some nations do not adhere well with other ones within it.

For reasons of history and geography, Greece is wanted by the European Union. Greece is a nation that would be expected to be part of the final European Beast power, hence, although there will likely be problems with Greece, it would seem to have to align with Europe.

The also Bible shows that there will be several reorganizations in Europe, and that they will lead to a dictatorship:

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)

Greece is known as ‘the cradle of democracy.’ Europe pays a certain lip-service to the idea of democracy. But the biblical reality is that a dictatorship will ultimately rule Europe. A dictatorship that will include being over Greece.

Must the Ten Kings of Revelation 17:12 Rule over Ten Currently Existing Nations? Some claim that these passages refer to a gathering of 10 currently existing nations together, while one group teaches that this is referring to 11 nations getting together. Is that what Revelation 17:12-13 refers to? The ramifications of misunderstanding this are enormous. A related sermon is titled Ten Kings of Revelation and the Great Tribulation.
