Notre Dame on Fire

France’s famous Notre Dame Cathedral caught fire today:

April 15, 2019

A major fire has broken out at the famed Notre Dame Cathedral in central Paris, causing huge damage to the 12th century building.

Media footage showed the cathedral in the French capital continuing to burn as night fell Monday, with flames leaping uncontrollably from the roof after the spire collapsed.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said firefighters are trying to contain a “terrible fire.” It is not clear what caused the blaze or if anyone has been hurt.

French media reported that fire officials say the blaze could be “potentially linked” to renovation work at the building.

Several sections of the building had been under scaffolding and officials say bronze statues were removed last week for the renovation.

Notre Dame means “Our Lady” and hence is basically dedicated to the Roman Catholic version of Mary.

My wife Joyce and I have visited it twice.

Some of the inside and pre-fire outside of it is in a on the ContinuingCOG channel:

Does the Bible teach anything about France in prophecy? Why is France called the eldest daughter of the Catholic Church? Can we expect troubles, civil unrest, prosperity, and disaster for France? Will France support the final Beast of the sea power of Revelation? Like the sons of Jacob betrayed their brother Joseph, will France ultimately betray the end time descendants of Joseph, the USA and the British-descended nations? What does the Bible show? What do the lessons of history and even Catholic prophecy indicate? This sermon was videoed in France and includes clips of Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dames (two of them), ancient artifacts, and more.

This is the second part of a two-part series. Here is a link to the first part: The ‘Lost Tribe’ of Reuben.

A written article of related interest is titled: The ‘Lost Tribe’ of Reuben: France in Prophecy?

Here is a link to the video sermon: France and Prophecy.

Anyway, many of the liturgical and other practices at Notre Dame that I have seen there are not consistent with scripture nor practices of the early Christian church.

French President Macron made some statements:

“It is with pride I tell you tonight we will rebuild this cathedral,” French President Emmanuel Macron told France Monday evening. On Tuesday, he said, he will call on the “greatest talent” from inside and outside French borders, “and we will rebuild Notre Dame because it is what the French expect of us, it is what our history deserves, it is, in the deepest sense, our destiny.”

President Macron was given the Charlemagne Prize last year for his efforts on behalf of European unity (see France’s President Macron receives the Charlemagne Prize and Germany’s Chancellor says Europe cannot rely on USA military — What are the prophetic ramifications?). He sees the destiny of France and Europe tied to the Church of Rome for some version of the so-called ‘Holy Roman Empire.’ His statements today are consistent with that.

That being said, I am praying for the safety of those affected by the fire.
