Might France’s Sarkozy return?

The former president of France made the news:

April 13, 2013

After a 30-year career in public life Nicolas Sarkozy left the Elysee Palace pledging “never to return”.

But barely a year on the polls would suggest that if an election was held today, the former president would trounce the incumbent Francois Hollande and on the right, he remains the preferred candidate to stand in 2017.

Since May his appearances have been few and far between…In 11 months in office, President Hollande has fallen further and faster than any other president of the modern day Fifth Republic.

A recent poll showed only 27% of the French have any confidence in him President Hollande.

“Don’t forget Mr Sarkozy won almost half the popular vote when he lost the election,” said Edouard Lecerf, of TNS Sofres…Suddenly Mr Sarkozy’s irrepressible, roll-up-your-sleeves attitude, has taken on new allure.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-22126213

Well, political winds change, and as the above report shows, Nicholas Sarkozy did not lose by that much last year, so, if interested, he could probably be France’s president again.  But he might have something else in mind (though the French presidency could possibly be a stepping stone) in Europe.

Former President Sarkozy was known for being very pro-European Union (Sarkozy Warns Against EU Failure and Europe Making More Strides Towards Being a United Empire) and sometimes anti-immigrant, (see also Sarkozy: France Has Too Many Foreigners).  He wants Europe to have more influence, and seems to have taken steps in the past to attempt to reduce the economic influence of the USA (e.g. France Proclaims a ‘New World’ Financial Order).

The Bible tells of a basically European kingdom that will be partially strong, partially weak, and with a fragile unity (Daniel 2:41-43). This kingdom will have a religion.  Europe is prophesied to make a deceitful deal with a power in the Middle East/North Africa (Daniel 11:27) and this deal might partially happen because of immigration policies, Middle East conflict, and/or civil unrest.

The Bible also tells of a time when a European power will reorganize (Revelation 17:12-13). While I do not believe that we are to the point of fulfilling the reorganization required by Revelation 17:12-13, it seems that a variety of steps will be necessary for the final reorganization to occur. It will take pro-European unity leaders for this to happen.

Perhaps Nicholas Sarkozy will have significant involvement with some of these events.
