Karl Guttenberg to be Publicly Laughed at Through Television Program

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg


Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg was mentioned in the German press today.  The following two articles are basically machine-translated from German into English:

He became famous as a TV doctor, she was celebrated as “Prostitute” success: Kai Schumann and Alexandra Neldel play in the planned Sat.1 satire of the fallen political star, the couple Stephanie and Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg. And you know the TV project is actually funny

Kai Schumann, a gynecologist from the RTL series “Doctor’s Diary” is planned in the plagiarism satire on Sat.1 in the role of Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg’s slip…Guttenberg, formerly the great political hope of the CSU resigned, over a year ago because of allegations of plagiarism in connection with his doctoral work, all political offices down.

6 July 2012

It will be the TV highlight of the coming year!Star producer Nico Hofmann (52), filmed in August, the life story of ex-Defence Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg (40, CSU) as a satire. From his childhood, his studies, his career in politics to his spectacular crash …

The film, which has the working title “The Minister”, is expected to show in the spring of 2013 Sat.1…

And what the real Guttenberg said about the film?

Nico Hofmann: “I have been told that the real deal, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, is cool and relaxed with it. I will invite him and his wife in any case to the premiere. ”  (http://www.bild.de/unterhaltung/tv/kai-schumann/tv-arzt-spielt-guttenberg-25021016.bild.html)

So, now Herr Guttenberg is being made fun of.  He has shown that, publicly, he can take public ridicule, as he demonstrated that when he has hit in the face with a big cake earlier this year (see Cake-in-Guttenberg-Face).

Bible prophecy warns about a leader who was rejected who will rise up and lead Europe per Daniel 11:21-44. One verse to focus on is verse 21. Here are four translations of it from Catholic and Protestant sources:

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)

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 from THE MESSAGE: The Bible in Contemporary Language © 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson. All rights reserved.)

21 And in his place shall stand up a contemptible person, to whom they had not given the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by flatteries. (Daniel 11:21, ASV)

21 ‘And stood up on his station hath a despicable one, and they have not given unto him the honour of the kingdom, and he hath come in quietly, and hath strengthened the kingdom by flatteries. (Daniel 11:21, Young’s Literal Translation)

Interestingly, the Baron was considered to have had a major chance to become Chancellor of Germany before the plagiarism scandal.  In a sense, he was “a man spurned and passed over for advancement” as THE MESSAGE version of Daniel 11:21 indicates.

Here are some comments from Barne’s Notes on Daniel 11:21:

The Hebrew word rendered “vile” – נבזה nı̂bezeh – properly means one despised or held in contempt, Isaiah 49:7; Psalm 22:6 (7). The meaning here is, that he was one who deserved to be despised, and who would be held in contempt – a man of a low, base, contemptible character. Vulgate, “despectus;” Greek ἐξουδενώθη exoudenōthē…

But he shall come in peaceably – Quietly; without war or force; by art rather than by arms…

And obtain the kingdom by flatteries – חלקלקות chălaqelaqqôth – “lubricitates, blanditioe.” “The word,” says Elliott (Rev. iv. 133), “has a double sense, being applied both to the slipperiness of a path, and the slipperiness or flattering and deceit of the tongue.

Athough many despise Herr Guttenberg and make fun of him, some want him back (see Might German Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg become the King of the North?).  He is still having influence in various aspects of foreign policy (e.g. Karl Guttenberg Interviewed and Lays Out Some of His Vision for European Union).

Consistent with non-biblical and perhaps biblical prophecy, Karl Guttenberg exiled himself to the USA last Summer (see Baron Guttenberg’s House May Fulfill a Prophecy (and is in a Celebrity Neighborhood)).  And while some in German politics wanted him to run for elective office in Germany in 2013, he decided against it–though without closing the door for some type of comeback later (see Karl Guttenberg Says No to 2013).  Because of the time since his scandal and since the television program apparently making fun of him is to come out in 2013, perhaps a later date may be politically more expedient.

As regular readers know, I have wondered if former German Defense Minister Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg was a candidate to possibly be the final King of the North of Daniel 11 and Beast of Revelation. The fact that he has had problems is consistent with biblical and other predictions.

So, he remains one to watch.

Of course, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg could simply be a somewhat politician with many ups and downs. And all his intentions could be fine. We will see.
