Hungarian Dictatorship and Collapse in 2012?

Crown of the  Beast of Revelation?
Crown of the “Austro-Hungarian Empire” & the “Holy Roman Empire”


A reader forwarded me several items about the goings on in Hungary that seemed somewhat unusual:

Roubini sees threat of 2012 collapse in Hungary
Dec 29, 2011
“The government’s insistence on its unorthodox policy mix, together with an ill-founded hope that international lenders will eventually drop their provisions, will keep IMF loan talks on the backburner in the near term,” Roubini Global Economics summed up the country’s current situation in its latest research.   The author is of the view that Hungary will have two options next year as it is struggling to renew debt: either accept the requirements of the EU and the IMF, or persist in the concept of economic sovereignty and risk Hungary’s solvency in this “policy gamble”.
Hungary set to approve central bank law opposed by EU, IMF
Dec 30, 2011
Hungary’s parliament is expected to defy IMF and EU objections on Friday by passing its new central bank law, piling doubt on whether the government can reach a new funding deal with its international lenders.
Autocracy returns to Central Europe
Washington Post – Dec 26, 201…
And now something is happening that no one ever contemplated in the days when Havel was leading the states of Central Europe into the European Union and NATO. One of them — Hungary — is returning to autocracy.

Orban, a right-wing nationalist, is directing a concerted assault against each and every independent institution in Hungary: the press, parliament, judiciary, churches and now the central bank.“It’s not a new Berlin Wall” that Orban is building, Haraszti told me. “It’s not brutal — people are not being taken away. But Hungary is becoming a constitutional dictatorship in the classic sense.”

The idea that part or all of Europe may re-install an autocracy/monarchy/dictatorship is consistent with Bible prophecy:

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)

Whether what is now happening in Hungary is related to that will be seen.

Daniel 2:42-44 warns,

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. 44 And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.

So, the Bible warns that there will be a fragile lack of cohesiveness in the final Beast kingdom. Does not Europe regularly demonstrate that problem?

It may be of interest to note that the crown of the first “Holy Roman Empire” includes iron and clay amongst its materials:

…one of Europe’s great symbols of power the Iron Crown of the first Holy Roman Emperor, Charlemagne…The Iron Crown, made of gold and iron and set with precious stones, is held in the Cathedral at Monza, near Milan, in Italy…a recent refurbishment of the crown it was discovered that its precious stones were held in place by a mixture of beeswax and clay, a common adhesive of the times…

Charlemagne was crowned the first Holy Roman Emperor, reputedly with the Iron Crown, by Pope Leo III in Rome on Christmas Night, 800 AD. He lived from 782-814 and, as King of the Franks, established and ruled over a kingdom that spanned virtually all the Christian States of western Europe, including what is now France, Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands, half of Italy and Germany, part of Austria and a small part of Spain. His role in uniting much of Europe is regarded as having an impact that remains until today (source Australian Government: 11/30/07).

{Note: Charlemagne was believed to have been born in 742, not 782 as the above indicates.}

Even a secular news article by Europe’s World noticed that Europe may have partially feet of clay as the following headline shows:

PARIS – France’s imposing EU presidency has feet of clay (Autumn 2008 by Sabine Saurugger. Europe’s World. viewed 11/05/08.

Europe not only fits the prophecies related to the Beast, its relics seem to as well.

If Hungary does have major problems and possible civil unrest, this would help set the stage for a more autocratic form of government there.  Since the Bible shows that Europe will get an autocratic leader, various parts of Europe are likely to face civil unrest and/or civil war before this leader rises up.  2012 may well prove to be an interesting year.

Three articles of possibly related interest may include:

Who is the King of the North? Is there one? Do biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies point to the same leader? Should he be followed? Who will be the King of the North discussed in Daniel 11? Is a nuclear attack prophesied to happen to the English-speaking peoples of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand? When do the 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days (the time, times, and half a time) of Daniel 12 begin? When does the Bible show that economic collapse will affect the United States?
Europa, the Beast, and Revelation Where did Europe get its name? What might Europe have to do with the Book of Revelation? What about “the Beast”? Is an emerging European power “the daughter of Babylon”? What is ahead for Europe?
End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? Are there Mayan calendar predictions for change in 2012? Changes were centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans. Do Mayan/Hindu/Hopi/Buddhist/New Age/Nostradamus prophecies have any value here? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012? How might Barack Obama be involved in 2012?
