Germany and Switzerland to help build coast-to-coast railway in South America

Bolivian President Evo Morales visited Switzerland to sign an agreement to construct a railway line across the continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Supporters say the project will boost trade and create jobs.

South America’s new transcontinental railway is considered to be one the biggest infrastructure projects of the century and is also known as the “Panama Canal on railway tracks.” A 3,755-kilometer land connection is set to be built between the continent’s Atlantic and Pacific coasts. …

The transcontinental railway will connect three South American countries: Brazil, Bolivia and Peru. The line will run from the Brazilian port city of Santos on the Atlantic coast through Bolivia to the Peruvian port city of Ilo on the Pacific coast. Other South American countries including Paraguay, Argentina and Uruguay are interested in a connection as well.

“The transcontinental railway is an important geostrategic project for South American countries,” says economist José Alberti from the Bolivian export association CADEX in an interview with DW. “It will improve integration and infrastructures on the continent, foster transatlantic networking and make access to Asia better.” Alberti points out that “this project will reduce time and costs. Furthermore, new services will be created with respect to international trade and they will boost the competitiveness of the countries in the region.” http://www.dw.com/en/germany-and-switzerland-to-help-build-coast-to-coast-railway-in-south-america/a-41825559

If you look at the railroad lines on the photo at the beginning of this post, you will see that part of Bolivia’s railroad lines do not connect going east=west. The European project is expected to make that connection and upgrade lines. Essentially, this will connect the Pacific Ocean on the west (Ilo, Peru) to the Atlantic Ocean on the east (Santos, Brazil).

This project should benefit the economies of several South American nations, but will also benefit Europe and China.

This project demonstrates that others, and not the USA, are gaining more influence in South America.

My read of Bible prophecy suggests that South America will end up aligning with Europe. Most of the peoples in Latin America are Roman Catholic. And this is true of nearly every nation there. Thus, religion is a major cultural tie to Europe. Having a pope from Argentina who now lives in Rome is also a factor in connecting South America to Europe.

Certain parts of Latin America are also politically quite connected to Europe. French Guiana is actually part of France and uses the Euro as its currency. Suriname still maintains close ties to the Netherlands. There exist certain legal connections between those of Portugal and Brazil which ties those nations relatively closely. Guyana used to be part of the British Commonwealth (however, because of ethnic reasons, I suspect that in the end it may decide to be more closely aligned with the rest of Latin America and continental Europe than with the UK). Most of the Spanish-speaking nations have ties to each other as well as Spain. In the future, all will apparently have ties to Europe (cf. Revelation 13:1-9).

Speaking of Latin America and its future, the article in English Mexico, Central America, South America, Brazil, and the Caribbean in Prophecy, has been translated into the Spanish language as México, América central, Suramérica, Brasil y el Caribe en la profecía. So those in Latin America who, outside of Brazil, mainly speak Spanish can also see what we in the Continuing Church of God have put together about their prophetic future.

Some claim that these passages refer to a gathering of 10 currently existing nations together, while one group teaches that this is referring to 11 nations getting together. Is that what Revelation 17:12-13 refers to? The ramifications of misunderstanding this are enormous. A related sermon is titled Ten Kings of Revelation and the Great Tribulation.
