Zero Hedge: Twenty-four world leaders have signed a letter calling for more globalism to combat future pandemics, citing the the coronavirus outbreak as an opportunity to consign nationalism to the dustbin of history.
UK prime minister Boris Johnson, German chancellor Angela Merkel, and French president Emmanuel Macron are the leading figures behind the pledge, with 21 other heads of state signing the letter.
It states that “nobody is safe until everyone is safe,” and that a “global community” must be further implemented in order to combat ‘inevitable’ future pandemics.
“At a time when Covid-19 has exploited our weaknesses and divisions, we must seize this opportunity and come together as a global community for peaceful cooperation that extends beyond this crisis,” the letter states.
“Building our capacities and systems to do this will take time and require a sustained political, financial and societal commitment over many years,” it adds.
The letter compares the situation to the aftermath of the Second World War, and urges an end to “isolationism and nationalism”. Read More …
Opinion: EU leaders Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, and Emmanuel Macron are going to get exactly what they hope for.
Most Bible teachers agree that the European Union represents the closest fulfillment to Daniel 2:41-43. With Daniel 2:42 as evidence …
“And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile.”
While the EU today has 27 countries, several (Italy, Poland and Denmark) have expressed a desire to follow the UK out of the union. Eventually, according to Daniel, 10 will be left. A key piece of evidence “partly of iron and partly of baked clay” lines up perfectly with the economically strong northern EU countries and economically weak southern nations today.
The fact that Daniel’s description shares the element iron with the fourth kingdom suggests a connection to Rome, and the ten toes could imply a ten-nation confederacy (matching the ten horns in Daniel 7:20) that will be led collectively by a single powerful ruler.
On September 26, 2021, Angela Merkel’s term as the longest serving Chancellor of Germany and de facto leader of Europe will end, leaving Emmanuel Macron the most powerful leader in the union.
I can’t help but wonder if the next EU leader is the one.
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, When the transgressors have reached their fullness, A king shall arise, Having fierce features, Who understands sinister schemes. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; He shall destroy fearfully, And shall prosper and thrive; He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people.” Daniel 8:23-24
