PCG and COGwriter on Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg on Trumpet cover


For over a decade PCG and COGwriter have covered news and prophetic items related to former German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg. The current issue of PCG’s Trumpet magazine has the following from its Gerald Flurry:

A strong leader is prophesied in the Bible to rise in Europe very soon—perhaps even within months. I believe almost certainly that you can identify who this man will be. Only one man appears able to fulfill what the Bible says about this strongman. His name is Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg. Guttenberg left German politics in 2011 after a plagiarism scandal, and he moved to the United States. But in September 2019, he and his family relocated back to Germany. This move, along with the present state of German politics, may indicate this key Bible prophecy is about to be fulfilled. …

Germany needs an experienced and assertive leader. It needs someone special. The Bible prophesies in vivid detail that such a leader will emerge in the end time. We need to understand this prophecy, because it says that this German strongman will plunge the whole world into a new dark age! …

For 2,500 years, the book of Daniel has not been understood. That is because it is only for this end time (Daniel 12:4, 9). Its meaning has been revealed in our day.

The prophecy about this strongman is in Daniel 8:23-24. First, notice that these verses state explicitly that these events occur in “the latter time.” This will be a time “when the transgressors are come to the full.” Godlessness is rife, modern technology is proliferating immoral filth with malignant efficiency, and people are wallowing in unspeakable evil. Verse 25 says the individual discussed here will “stand up against the Prince of princes”—referring to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. So this is clearly a prophecy for the end time.

Now read about this man in verse 23: “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” This is talking about the coming leader of Germany. We can know this by putting this together with other prophecies. For example, the prophecy in Daniel 11:40-45 says “the king of the north” shall rise “at the time of the end.” This is talking about a German-led European superpower. Isaiah 10:5-19 give a similar prophecy, adding that this leader shall be “the king of Assyria.” The modern Germans are the descendants of ancient Assyria. …

Daniel 8:23 supplies some key details about this soon-coming German strongman. The Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament explains that the expression “dark sentences” means riddles, difficult or dark speeches, or sayings, questions or parables. It says it is used “at a higher social level,” … This is revealing insight. The prophesied strongman operates on a high social level; he is capable of understanding and solving complex issues and questions. He is brilliant and sophisticated, and he has intellectual depth and power.

The context shows he enjoys notoriety and fame for it. KT zu Guttenberg fits this description. He served as Germany’s minister of economics and technology, and then as minister of defense. … Guttenberg is also German nobility, which adds to his prestige and fame. The baron is often invited to speak about geopolitics, emerging financial technologies, trans-Atlantic relations, cyberwarfare, Brexit and other complex subjects. In many of his speeches, which he gives without notes in both English and German, he is comfortable addressing experts in their various fields. …

Like Antiochus anciently, he will come as an angel of light—with charisma, and in love and peace (e.g. 2 Corinthians 11:13-15). But he has malignant purpose, and he uses craft and deceit in everything he does. What he says causes nations to be destroyed—and suddenly! His empire will crush many peoples!

On the surface, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg remains one to watch.

Are there biblical reasons to consider Karl Guttenberg?

Here are 28 items to consider:

  1. Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg is a leader from middle Europe and has a Franco-German/Assyrian bloodline. (cf. Isaiah 10:5-11; Daniel 7:24)
  2. He has a military background and often promotes European/German military development. The Beast of Revelation 13:1-4 is shown to be a military political leader.
  3. He is considered to have some economic expertise. (cf. Daniel 8:25; 11:24; Revelation 13:16-17; 18:3)
  4. He has been an extremely popular politician (he was the most popular in Germany in early and late 2010). (Revelation 13:4,8)
  5. He is considered an expert on foreign policy. (cf. Daniel 11:27)
  6. He was “Minister of Defence” for Germany and has military expertise. (cf. Revelation 13:4; Daniel 11:39-43)
  7. He is some type of Catholic. (cf. Revelation 17:7-11)
  8. Because he is married to a Lutheran (and she apparently did not convert prior to marriage), he apparently is not super strict about being Catholic (some other news reports I have seen also seem to confirm this in other ways as well). (cf. Revelation 13:4,8; Daniel 11:36-38)
  9. His wife also has political connections, and has made several public  “morality statements.”  Hence suggesting that the Guttenbergs represent the moral high ground in Germany. (cf. Revelation 13:4,8)
  10. He seems to have ecumenical tendencies, and that is what the “Great Monarch” of Catholic prophecies and the final Beast of Revelation would likely have. (cf. Revelation 13:4,8; Daniel 11:36-38)
  11. He is a descendant of the Habsburg line of rulers (Emperors of the Holy Roman Empire were from the Habsburg line). (cf. Isaiah 10:5-11; Revelation 17:9-11)
  12. He may be considered to be entitled to use the “King of Jerusalem” title that Otto von Habsburg held. (cf. Daniel 11:31)
  13. Charlemagne was a Frank-German leader and “Holy Roman Emperor. “Certain Catholic prophecies indicate that the “Great Monarch” will be a descendant of Charlemagne. Bible prophecies seem to point to the resurrection of an empire that has revived in the past (Revelation 13:1-3; 17:9-11)
  14. His blood line crosses into various countries in Europe (at least Germany, France, Austria, Liechtenstein, and Croatia). So did the Roman empire. (cf. Daniel 9:26-27)
  15. He has the right to select the priest for his parish.  Hence, the idea that political leaders should be involved with religion is something he was raised up believing. A leader combining church and state is prophesied in Daniel 11:37-38 and Revelation 13.
  16. The understanding that his title means “Baron of the Holy Roman Empire” is interesting as the Book of Revelation describes a power that would resemble a re-emergence of “the Holy Roman Empire” and Catholic prophecy specifically tells of a time when “The Great King will be crowned Holy Roman Emperor by the reigning Pope” (Birch DA. Trial, Tribulation & Triumph: Before During and After Antichrist. Queenship Publishing Company, Goleta (CA), 1996,, p. 555). Baron is a title of nobility, but not one of technically accepted royalty in Germany. (Daniel 11:21)
  17. The fact that he has been the most popular political leader in Germany suggests that he has a certain charisma that would be consistent with that which is expected for the final Beast leader (cf. Daniel 7:20,11:21-24,31; Revelation 13:3-5).
  18. He is believed to careful cultivate his public image, which seems consistent with the cunning (Daniel 8:25) and other practices of the final Beast leader (Daniel 11:36-38).
  19. Because a Catholic monarchist relative (Karl Ludwig Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg) of his was involved in a plot against Hitler in 1944 (and killed for it in April 1945), he may be perceived as less of a threat than others with a German background. (cf. Daniel 8:23-25; 11:24)
  20. He is considered to be a smooth talking attractive leader. (cf. Daniel 8:25; 11:21)
  21. Some of his entertainment actions suggest that beneath his exterior he may have certain “vile” tendencies (cf. Daniel 11:21). His plagiarism scandal seems consistent with this as well.
  22. He has a problem with arrogance and vanity (Daniel 11:36-37).
  23. He is in a type of self-imposed exile and the last king of the North is supposed to have a period of exile. (cf. Daniel 8:23-25; 11:21-23)
  24. He has risen to powerful positions quite quickly.  And may do that again. (Daniel 8:23-24; 11:21-23)
  25. He has been ridiculed and rejected by many. (Daniel 11:21)
  26. He has a certain expertise when it comes to computers and surveillance. (cf. Revelation 13:15-18; Daniel 8:23).
  27. He has a certain expertise in electronic currencies, and hence has some knowledge about how to regulate/control buying and selling (Revelation 13:15-18).
  28. He has referred to himself as a type of political beast and the Bible warns about one rising up it calls the Beast (cf. Revelation 13:1-10).

I believe that if he is the one, he will re-emerge in European politics (which he is now doing, but not in a conventional way), though he may have some future setbacks first.

He is a charismatic leader that yields a lot of influence in Germany, and also some in the European Union.

If Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg is involved with a future Middle East peace deal and he establishes some type of new religious “Catholic” order, then it could very well be that he could be the final King of the North.  But even if he is not, we are certainly living in times where a powerful leader in Europe will rise up.

He is one to watch as he could be a factor in the rise of the European King of the North Beast power, even if he is not that individual himself.
