Kevin Rudd again Prime Minister of Australia

Australia’s Kevin Rudd


For the second time, Kevin Rudd has become Prime Minister of Australia, replacing Julia Gillard:

June 27, 2013

Kevin Rudd has been sworn in as prime minister of Australia, a day after he ousted Julia Gillard as leader of the Labor Party.

Mr Rudd took the oath at Government House in front of Governor-General Quentin Bryce.

He then addressed parliament briefly, paying tribute to Ms Gillard, who is stepping down from politics…

Mr Rudd returned to lead Australia’s government three years and three days after he was toppled in a similar Labor leadership contest by Ms Gillard, then his deputy.

He secured 57 votes to Ms Gillard’s 45 in Wednesday’s vote, which followed months of speculation and bitter infighting over who should lead Labor into the forthcoming election.

LEIGH SALES, PRESENTER: It’s been the most tumultuous two days in federal politics since the day three years ago when Julia Gillard dethroned Kevin Rudd as Prime Minister.

After last night’s dramatic counter-coup, the drama continued today with another ministerial resignation and a rowdy debate in Parliament as the Coalition moved to capitalise on Labor’s turmoil.

Kevin Rudd’s resurrection has reinvigorated the political contest…

KEVIN RUDD, INCOMING PRIME MINISTER: In 2007 the Australian people elected me to be their Prime Minister. That is a task that I resume today with humility, with honour and with an important sense of energy and purpose…

CHRIS UHLMANN: And so ends the 43rd Parliament and with it the political career of Australia’s first female Prime Minister. She has much to be proud of and a lot to regret. Everyone will remember the hung parliament and few will mourn its passing.

So, just like there were quick changes in Australian politics three years ago when Julia Gillard replaced Kevin Rudd, a similar situation has arose as Kevin Rudd has replaced her.

From a religious perspective, Kevin Rudd sometimes raises eyebrows.  He was raised Roman Catholic, but began to attend the Anglican Church in the 1980s with his wife.  Wikipedia reports that his religion is Anglicanism and also reported the following:

Rudd and his family attend the Anglican church of St John the Baptist in Bulimba…In December 2009, Rudd was spotted at a Catholic Mass to commemorate the canonisation of Mary MacKillop, in which he was administered with the Holy Communion. Rudd’s actions provoked criticism and debate among both among political and religious circles…A report by The Australian quoted that Rudd embraced Anglicanism but at the same time did not formally renounce his Catholic faith.

Rudd is the mainstay of the parliamentary prayer group in Parliament House, Canberra.   He is vocal about his Christianity and has given a number of prominent interviews to the Australian religious press on the topic.

In terms of end-time prophecy, by virtue of his timing, I believe that Kevin Rudd will take steps that will cause the Chinese to have even more interest in his country.

Regarding Australia’s previous Prime Minister Julia Gillard, I believe that she helped fulfill the following prophecy:

12 As for My people, children are their oppressors, And women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths. (Isaiah 3:12)

Prime Minister Gillard also fulfilled a prediction I made about her when she took office (Australia Now Has a Female Prime Minister: Prophetic Ramifications?) by taking to steps to get the Chinese interested in taking over Australia (Australia accepts US troops, China not pleased).

The Australians themselves generally hope that the USA will be able to protect them. Yet, since Bible prophecy shows that those in the end-time with the “strongest fortresses” (which currently would be the USA) will be taken over (Daniel 11:39), this does not bode well for any nation that truly needs protection from the USA.

Furthermore, the Bible shows that the land of the Anglo-descended peoples will be conquered and divided (Daniel 11:39; Lamentations 4:16; Joel 3:2-3; Amos 7:17; Ezekiel 5:1-2,12; 6:8; Ezekiel 22:13-15).

Because of his ties to Roman Catholicism, it is possible that once the USA is taken over, Kevin Rudd, like possibly someone like Britain’s Tony Blair, might partially fulfill the following verses in the Bible in trying to get help from the Assyrians (modern Germany with its allies) after they have destroyed the U.S.A. and its Anglo-Allies:

1 “Ephraim also is like a silly dove, without sense–They call to Egypt, They go to Assyria. 12 Wherever they go, I will spread My net on them; I will bring them down like birds of the air;  I will chastise them According to what their congregation has heard (Hosea 7:11-12).

8 Israel is swallowed up; Now they are among the Gentiles Like a vessel in which is no pleasure. 9 For they have gone up to Assyria, Like a wild donkey alone by itself; Ephraim has hired lovers (Hosea 8:8-9).

1 Ephraim feeds on the wind, And pursues the east wind; He daily increases lies and desolation. Also they make a covenant with the Assyrians, And oil is carried to Egypt (Hosea 12:1).

It would seem that perhaps Kevin Rudd could try to use his contacts within Catholicism to try to improve the lot of the Australians at that time.

Since I tend to believe that these verses in Hosea will be fulfilled after the start of the Great Tribulation and before the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of the Kingdom of God, if Kevin Rudd is involved in the above fulfillment, in that specific way he might personally also be Apocalyptic.  Time will tell.

Yet, without national repentance, the nation of Australia is doomed. Period.

And in his previous term as Prime Minister, I do not recall Kevin Rudd calling for the proper type of repentance needed then.  Nor now.
