Read a brief but insightful discussion of the European Union’s debt problems in the Wall Street Journal today (“Europe’s Debt Addiction” 3/9/2011).
It’s easy to see Europe’s future role in the end time Beast power and think that it will be one smooth ride from here to there, but that would be a dangerous assumption. In fact, the prophetic description of being “iron mixed with clay” and “partly strong and partly fragile” (Dan. 2:41-43) almost assures difficult times.
One of the keys worth noting is the incessant drive for unity. As a certain British author once said to all of us at a ministerial conference, “The solution to Europe’s problems always seems to be more Europe.”
The sovereign debt crisis the EU faced recently has not gone away. And given the prophecies concerning how radically the nature of sovereignty in Europe is to change in the future and the role that Germany will ultimately assume, this should not necessarily be a surprise. A lot more can come out of this than many might think.
