In an interview with the Financial Times – which painted Soros as a freedom-fighting philanthropist, unjustly vilified by right-wing extremists and anti-Semitic authoritarian strongmen – Soros lamented that nationalism is the ascending ideology du jour, and that Vladimir Putin’s Russia is sailing to supremacy on its cresting wave.
“It’s déjà vu all over again with one big change — the dominant ideology in the world now is nationalism,” Soros said. “It’s the EU that’s the institution that’s on the verge of a breakdown. And Russia is now the resurgent power, based on nationalism.” more …
Opinion: For the first time I agree with him, but more importantly, so does the prophet Daniel.
That the European Union of today is the logical candidate for the revived Roman Empire has been the topic of hundreds of our posts. If Soros is correct, then a collapse and restructuring of the EU into regions or divisions, each with a president, would bring Daniel 7:24 into view.
“The ten horns are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones, And shall subdue three kings.”
Daniel 7:23-25 gives us a frightening view of revived Rome, the Beast Empire of Antichrist. His kingdom will be so large and powerful that it will be divided into 10 regions with 10 kings (leaders):
Daniel laments that his people, the Jewish people, along with tribulation saints, will be persecuted by this king who shall arise:
“He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.”
This king, indwelt by Satan, will be proud and speak blasphemy against the true King. He will change the Gregorian calendar that is based on the birth of Christ (Judaism and Islam have calendars different from the Gregorian).
He will be given power over the saints for 42 months, or 3.5 years, giving further evidence that the church is not present:
Jesus told us in Matthew 16:18 that “the gates of hell would not prevail against His Church.”
His reign of terror will not end until the triumphant return of Jesus Christ (Revelation 19:11-16).
