Could EU President Donald Tusk be ‘the raiser of taxes’?

Donald Tusk (European People’s Party)


EU Council President Herman Von Rompuy was replaced by Donald Tusk on December 1, 2014.  He recently made the news for telling UK Prime Minister David Cameron that the idea of changing the Lisbon Treaty like David Cameron wants to do was ‘mission impossible’ (see EU’s Tusk tells UK’s Cameron plans are ‘Mission Impossible’).  The Lisbon Treaty is the agreement that the European Union currently operates under, and let me state that irrespective of what Donald Tusk has stated, it will be changed according to Bible prophecy (for some detail see Must the Ten Kings of Revelation 17:12 Rule over Ten Currently Existing Nations?).

Despite that particular view he holds, could Donald Tusk possibly have been prophesied?

The Bible teaches that before the final King of the North rises up, there will come a raiser of taxes:

20 “There shall arise in his place one who imposes taxes on the glorious kingdom; but within a few days he shall be destroyed, but not in anger or in battle. 21 And in his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue.  (Daniel 11:20-21)

Presuming that this has future applications, is it possible that Donald Tusk could fulfill that?

Perhaps some background information could be helpful.

Donald Tusk was Prime Minister of Poland from November of 2007 until September of 2014.  When he was campaigning for that office he claimed he would try to reduce taxes and the bureaucracy.  According to a report I read, he instead raised taxes and increased the amount of government employees in Poland.  But Poland’s economy and influence grew while he was in office.

Here is some more information about him:

Donald Tusk, who oversaw much of Poland’s progress as prime minister between 2007 and 2014, should become the first politician from “new Europe” to move into one of the EU’s top jobs. As president of the European Council, where Europe’s heads of government meet, it will fall to Mr Tusk to craft deals between 28 disputatious leaders. …

Mr Tusk’s modest predecessor, Herman Van Rompuy, served as a sort of therapist to the EU’s leaders, listening to their concerns and finding common ground where it was available, particularly on economic matters. A different approach may be expected from Mr Tusk, who elbowed his way to the top of Polish politics, sometimes ruthlessly. …

Yet for all that, Mr Tusk’s tools will be the multilateral ones of a committed European.

The new chairman of EU summits, former Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, says the EU needs unity and “ruthless determination” to end the economic crisis and counter the bloc’s foes.

Mr Tusk, 57, was speaking at a ceremony in Brussels, where Herman Van Rompuy bowed out after a five-year term.

In a veiled warning about Russia’s actions in Ukraine, Mr Tusk said “history is back, and such times need leadership and political unity”.

Mr Tusk has one of the EU’s top jobs.

As European Council president he is in a powerful position to shape the EU’s priorities and hammer out deals among the 28 member states’ governments.

He was the choice of the centre-right European People’s Party, the pro-integration bloc that won May’s European elections.

My understanding of his political background indicates that it is possible he could have that role.  However, if he does, he will die shortly after he implements some type of significant raising of taxes.

Because of the prophesied death of the raiser of taxes and the quick rise thereafter by the final King of the North (who is also the final Beast of the Sea of Revelation 13:1-10), if Donald Tusk is this individual, it would take time to see.

Donald Tusk may be one to ‘watch’ (cf. Mark 13:37).
