In this issue, we are mainly concentrating on spectacular and wide-ranging developments pertaining to Great Britain. As the Church of God has prophesied and proclaimed for decades, Great Britain will finally be at odds with continental Europe. We have been saying for years that Britain will not join the Eurozone, and that it will ultimately leave or be expelled from the EU. The most recent events show the accuracy of our predictions, which are not based on human imagination, but on biblical prophecies showing that in the not-too-distant future, a military confrontation will ensue between continental Europe and Great Britain.
We want to emphasize that we do not take any position in the matter, but we are just reporting as to what is happening. In previous Current Events sections, we quoted extensively from the British press. In this issue, we are citing primarily European papers to show their take on things. This is not so say that we feel that the EU member states are right and the UK is wrong. Of course we know that both are wrong, in having ignored the Bible and its teaching of the right way to live and the worship of the true God. And we know that the continental European nations—and especially the still emerging ten nations or groups of nations—will not really be strongly united culturally, as iron does not mix with clay (Daniel 2:43), but we also know that their unification will be of a powerful economic, political and military nature, which will finally cause them to transfer their authority to a charismatic leader of German descent.
We are also reporting on the European-Russian Summit; the continuing deteriorating relationship between the USA and Europe due to a new controversial US tax law; additional bad news for the USA; repeated threats from Iran; and the Vatican’s goals pertaining to Jerusalem.
