Giving Germany the empire it had long dreamed of

Due to the blog-related “thought-jam” mentioned last time, I am slow to point out this article, but — slow or not — it’s worth it. Last week the UK’s Telegraph published this blog entry by their chief political commentator Peter Oborne: “The euro crisis will give Germany the empire it’s always dreamed of” (7/21/2011).  In the article, Oborne points out concerning the recent round of European debt talks:

“Yesterday’s witching hour of the European Union means that Germany has come very close to realising Bismarck’s dream of an economic empire stretching from central Europe to the Eastern Mediterranean.”

(I couldn’t help but think of John Paul II’s comment about envisioning a United Europe stretching “from the Atlantic to the Urals.”)

It would be, indeed, ironic if the measures begun in the aftermath of WWII to dilute Germany’s power and dull the edge of its ambition, in the end, serve to enable the German preeminence they were meant to forestall.

Scripture has a lot to say about the rise of the Beast now forming in Europe, as well as about the Woman who will ride it.  If Americans aren’t taking notice, yet, they will be surprised at how, once again, events across the ocean are going to change their entire world — this time in ways most have never imagined.

One thought on “Giving Germany the empire it had long dreamed of

    Things are certainly falling into place whhere the rise and rise of Germany is concerned. Herbert W. Armstrong was given a great understanding of what was to happen – the reunifucation of Germany and the fall of the Soviet Union being prime examples. And now we see his warning of the revived Holy Roman Empire being driven by a resurgent Germany happening before our eyes. Germany will certainly be the dominant force in the European superstate being constructed as Herbert W. Armstrong warned. These things he could safely say because God had opened up his mind to understand Bible prophecy concerning them.
