Guttenberg Criticized, But…

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg


Some in the German press have again criticized Karl zu Guttenberg:

Ridicule for Guttenberg’s new EU internet role
The Local – Dec 13, 2011
Former German Defence Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, who was dubbed Dr. Googleberg when caught plagiarizing his PhD thesis, has been appointed EU advisor on internet freedom, inviting much derision.
Guttenberg was named advisor to the EU’s internet commissioner Neelie Kroes on Monday, with the particular remit of the role of the internet in authoritarian regimes in the Arab world.But many German commentators noted that during one of his previous incarnations as economics and technology minister in 2009, Guttenberg had come out in favour of website blocks for child porn, despite expert advisers saying they were an ineffective instrument against paedophiles.

But it should be pointed out that there really is a difference between trying to stop the spread of child pornography (which is something that all the governments of the world should have sense enough to realize is wrong) and to open the internet to various political and religious ideas.

It is my belief that if Baron Guttenberg is one to watch to potentially be the final King of the North of Daniel 11 (the final head of the Beast of the sea of Revelation 13), that he would sometimes make what could be called “moral stands,” such as opposing child pornography.  Both Baron Guttenberg and his wife Stephanie have taken “moral stands” publicly, and if he is to rise up as I suspect that he may, it is likely that he and/or his wife will do that again.

Regarding his new appointment, here is some of what the EU announced about it:

Digital Agenda: Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg invited by Kroes to promote internet freedom globally

Brussels, 12 December 2011 – European Commission Vice-President Neelie Kroes has invited Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, a former Federal Minister of Defence, and of Economics and Technology, in Germany, to advise on how to provide ongoing support to Internet users, bloggers and cyber-activists living under authoritarian regimes. This appointment forms a key element of a new “No Disconnect Strategy” to uphold the EU’s commitment to ensure human rights and fundamental freedoms are respected both online and off-line, and that internet and other information and communication technology (ICT) can remain a driver of political freedom, democratic development and economic growth…

The “No Disconnect strategy” will assist people in four ways:

  1. Developing and providing technological tools to enhance privacy and security of people living in non-democratic regimes when using ICT.
  2. Educating and raising awareness of activists about the opportunities and risks of ICT. In particular assisting activists to make best use of tools such as social networks and blogs while raising awareness of surveillance risks when communicating via ICT.
  3. Gathering high quality intelligence about what is happening “on the ground” in order to monitor the level of surveillance and censorship at a given time, in a given place.
  4. Cooperation. Developing a practical way to ensure that all stakeholders can share information on their activity and promote multilateral action and building cross-regional cooperation to protect human rights.

The Baron’s appointment should sound out alarms to all who understand Bible prophecy as one who has potential to be involved with end time matters, including the fact that the Baron is being ridiculed for this appointment as well as his plagiarism scandal (e.g. Ridicule for Guttenberg’s new EU internet role The Local – Dec 13, 2011.

Notice some prophecies related to the Beast and his empire:

15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.  (Revelation 13:15-18)

The fact that the Baron is to advise about internet security and surveillance may encourage him to press to get the above implemented.  The fact that he was once Economics Minister for Germany also gives him additional qualifications to possibly help fulfill Revelation 13:15-18.

What about ridicule for his Ph.D. scandal and getting his latest appointment?   Notice how this ridicule seems to fit with of some different translations of a passage in Daniel about the arrival of the final King of the North:

21 His place will be taken by a reject, a man spurned and passed over for advancement. He’ll surprise everyone, seemingly coming out of nowhere, and will seize the kingdom. (Daniel 11:21, THE MESSAGE)

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. (Daniel 11:21, New King James Version)

21 ‘In his place will rise a wretch: royal honours will not be given to him, but rather he will insinuate himself into them at his pleasure and will gain possession of the kingdom by intrigue. (Daniel 11:21, New Jerusalem Bible)

21 “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. (Daniel 11:21, New Living Translation)

21 And there shall stand up in his place one despised, and the kingly honour shall not be given him: and he shall come privately, and shall obtain the kingdom by fraud. (Daniel 11:21, Douay-Rheims)

Thus, even though many have ridiculed Karl zu Guttenberg for his plagiarism scandal (and many will consider him a reject as many believe he got his Ph.D. by fraud) and now his new appointment related to the internet for the EU, the reality is that this all may well fit biblical prophecy.

The final Beast will ultimately become the political leader of Europe. And according to the Bible, he will have military abilities (Revelation 13:1-4), will be apparently be popular and charismatic (cf. Daniel 7:20,11:21-24,31; Revelation 13:3-5), and be able to attain economic control (Revelation 13:15-18).  Baron Guttenberg has displayed confirming characteristics.

He is one we all should watch (cf. Mark 13:37).
