Britain Exits from the European Union (EU)
Well, things are changing over across the pond. The conservatives in England have voted to withdraw from the European Union (EU) to the chagrin of Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Obama, and other world leaders. People have had it and the only ones who resolutely fail to see that are those on the left who have forced every country that is part of the EU to open its doors to “refugees” from war-torn areas of the Middle East.
To the average person who doesn’t understand what has happened that led England to this point, the truth is that many of the conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa in Muslim countries were fomented by world leaders who called it “Arab Spring.” In reality, it most likely had to do with toppling existing regimes (Mubarak, Qaddafi, and the constant attempts with Assad in Syria), replacing them with puppet governments that would immediately become beholden to either the United States, the EU, a combination of both through massive “loans” forcing new leaders to do the bidding of the west.
Another reason these conflicts and skirmishes occurred is to not only gain a controlling voice or influence in those countries, but to redraw borders as well. Beyond this, the goal of moving “refugees” from some areas to countries in the EU or America without vetting them creates massive potential problems for those country’s citizen, not to mention the added financial burdens absorbed by those new “foster” countries.
Beyond all of this though, one thing has become clear. With the resettlement of these Muslim refugees, rapes, assaults, and crime in general has skyrocketed in the countries that have been forced to accept them. In essence then, it would seem that much of what is happening in the world has been fully contrived as a means to an end. The people of Great Britain have finally and collectively had enough and said “NO MORE!” They voted to leave the EU in spite of chiding and even threatening verbiage from President Obama, who during speeches to the folks in England acted more like President of the World, as he stuck his uninvited nose into England’s politics. It is likely that other countries will follow suit.
It is of course, interesting what many are saying, claiming, and predicting about this whole thing. Now that England is leaving (and PM Cameron has resigned), what will happen now? Will other countries follow? If so, which ones? What will happen to the EU?
Others are claiming they predicted this and it is a “win for God.” Such is the sentiments and voice of Walid Shoebat, who recently opined on the situation over there.
The trend we predicted has begun and the clock is turning in reverse of what many falsely predicted.
In the U.S. it will be Trump’s victory of Americanism vs. Hillary’s Globalism. Prophecy teachers for decades were dead wrong on the EU. They spoke of the European Common Market controlling the ‘buying and selling,’ that the EU is “the revived Roman Empire”, that the Eurocentric and the globalist one-world-government was this coming Antichrist, that the single European currency will become the standard, that the Treaty of Rome with all the nonsense will control the world … they were all dead wrong.
At least he says it like he means it. Like many, he believes Donald Trump will win the next election to become God’s “appointed” man of the hour. There are many who see him as a mirror image of Nebuchadnezzar. Unfortunately, these same people continually (and wrongly), connect America with Israel. In extreme cases, they believe America has replaced Israel and if we don’t do things correctly, God will replace America.
For the record, while many believed that the EU is (or was), the revised Roman Empire, I was never convinced. It looked promising but the final, revised Roman Empire will rise up from an area similar to the old Roman Empire. Certainly, in some ways, geographically, the EU seemed to resemble the old Roman Empire so there was always the possibility that it would become the final phase of the fourth empire as revealed in Daniel 2 and throughout that book.
But I also think Shoebat is getting way ahead of himself because he sees things from a completely Dominionist perspective. He believes that Christians are supposed to work really hard to take control of society. Once we have gained enough control of it, Jesus will be enabled to return to this planet physically. Our gift to Him then, will be global society that He can then rule. The absurdity here has been discussed in a number of articles and series here on this blog.
An example of Shoebat’s absolutely horrendous exegesis (interpreting Scripture) is seen in this comment:
The prophetic question many failed to ask is this: if a one world government is to take place or a European Union is to control the entire continent, how then will God “divide the nations”? How then will “nation war against nation, kingdom against kingdom” and how will God “divide the nations” “sheep from goats”?
He is clearly (though unbeknownst to him), mixing things up here. I’ve gone over the “nation against nation, and kingdom against kingdom” aspect of the Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24 and it is not how he is using it at all. He groups that with “dividing the nations” and “sheep from the goats” as well. Clearly, according to Scripture, the sheep and the goats judgment occurs after Jesus returns physically to this earth. The “nation against nation, kingdom against kingdom” is a Jewish idiom noting world wars, the first of which occurred with World War I. Shoebat is so far off base here, it would be laughable if it were not so sad. But we need to remember that he sees things from a completely Dominionist perspective and because of that, his understanding of Bible prophecy is completely skewed. He truly does not know how to “rightly divide” God’s Word at all and it doesn’t take long to see that by reading his articles.
He makes another statement referring to the above concepts, that is completely false.
For decades people ignored these key verses and have been fed hype about a single currency.
This is flat-out wrong, in my view. There have been plenty of people who know far better than Shoebat about these things and have written in-depth articles on them. Apparently, he has either missed them or ignored them. It’s not just about a one-world currency at all, but that is coming, I believe.
Shoebat persists in his ideas but what is fascinating is that he seems to not realize what he says.
And just in case you still persist in your view that south splitting from north as religious folktale, here is one major secular strategist, Stratfor’s renown George Friedman, just last month, he says that France will break up with Germany and will lead a “Mediterranean bloc”
Remember Nicolas Sarkozy, the past president of France? He envisioned a Mediterranean Union while he was still president and even had a coin to show the proposed currency for that union. I wrote about it the potential for the Mediterranean Union on this blog a few years ago. But I was not the only one. I said then as I state now, a Mediterranean Union (the one foreseen by Sarkozy), was actually much closer geographically to the old Roman Empire than the current EU.
It will take several years for sheep nations to split from goat nations. While the splits begin as result of national interest, it will take time and much turmoil to revive its Christian spirit which will only happen as gold is refined–through fire. This fire will be an internal revolution with Islam.
Again, Shoebat does not know what he speaks of here, in my opinion. The sheep and the goats will be physically separated into those two groups by Jesus Himself when He returns to this earth. Shoebat makes it appear as though God will do this or oversee this spiritually from the heavens as nations split away from one another. He’s simply wrong, in my opinion. His entire article from which I’ve been quoting is filled with one example after another of him yanking verses and passage of the Bible completely out of context to serve his preconceived notions. In short, he allegorizes much of Scripture, completely removing from it the normal, literal interpretation because of his Dominionist leanings.
In his article, Shoebat states that Great Britain’s leaving the EU is a victory for God. This is absurd because it implies there was a chance that God was going to lose in this epic battle! The hubris and knock on God’s sovereignty is extraordinary here.
I cannot stress this enough – everything that happens in the world is a victory for God! There is never a chance of God’s will not happening, ever. Yet, people like Walid Shoebat imply that God could have lost and God’s power is great behind Trump. The fact that Cameron came out against Trump (Shoebat believes), and ultimately stepped down proves (to Shoebat), that God has anointed Trump.
I am really getting tired of biblically illiterate individuals using the Bible as their own vendetta against the world as they push “nationalism,” which they believe is what God uses to push back the powers of evil.
What people like Shoebat fail to comprehend is that, according to the literal understanding of Scripture, the world will become one and the entire unified world will stand with Antichrist on the day that Jesus returns in a paltry attempt to keep Him from setting foot down on this planet! All is happening according to God’s plan.
Whether the EU completely fails or not is immaterial. Eventually, another “union” of nations will rise up and rule the world. This all may very well lead to the rise of the ten kings spoken of in Revelation 17. From these ten another will rise who will be the 11th. He will destroy three, leaving seven of the original ten and he himself will become the eighth (Daniel 7:24). The Bible is a holistic unit and must be interpreted against itself. Shoebat doesn’t do that at all. He simply picks and chooses which verses speak to him and seem to support his theories.
The final phase of the old Roman Empire – the Revised Roman Empire – will come to fruition. Shoebat’s Dominionist leanings do not allow him to see this and because of it, he also completely misunderstands current events in light of Scripture.
Time will tell what will replace the EU if it actually and completely falls apart. Know this though: something will and that something may well lead to the final version of the Revised Roman Empire of which the Antichrist will rise to rule the world. It will all occur because God wants it to occur. There should be no doubt about that.
