The Times of Israel: BRUSSELS (AP) — European Union nations bracing for the looming Donald Trump presidency showed defiance Monday in the face of the president-elect’s stinging comments on everything from NATO and German cars to the crumbling of the EU itself.
Trump also said Britain’s decision to leave the 28-nation European Union would “end up being a great thing,” and he predicted that other countries would also leave.
Opinion: EU progressives have their collective noses out of joint. The utter gall of a nationalist president-elect insulting the very fabric of socialism, is beyond the pale.
Worst of all Trump even had the nerve to slam Sunday’s Paris peace conference that was trying to negate 4,000 years of Bible history. Because of Trump the conference folded like a house of cards.
The current structure of the European Union is a train wreck. Wealthy northern countries mixed with economically weak southern countries is a page right out of Daniel 2.
Daniel is about to interpret king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream:
“You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.” Daniel 2: 31-33
After praying to God who reveals secrets, Daniel described the king’s dream and interpretation in detail:
Head of gold: You are this head of gold (Babylon)
Chest and arms of silver: After you another shall arise inferior to you (Medo-Persia)
Belly and thighs of bronze: A third kingdom of bronze shall rule over all the earth (Alexander/Greece)
Legs of iron: Will break in pieces and crush all the others (Rome/Constantinople)
Feet of iron and clay: Partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided (revived Rome, a perfect description of the EU today).
Astounding, isn’t it? Daniel gave an account of the Gentile empires that would dominate the world all the way to the end of the age. The current structure of the EU will one day give way to 10 divisions each with a king (leader).
The eleventh king will trample the earth Daniel 7:23-25.
