The political enclave known as Europe is in turmoil of historic proportion.
In addition to struggling to keep economically weak states like Greece in the union via massive bailouts, Europe now has the political quagmire of millions of migrants compounding her problems. The resolve of core European leadership is to keep “European identity and values”, including in particular, the “no internal borders” dream necessary to obliterate the idea of sovereign mini-states.
So far, it’s like wanting to eat omelette without breaking eggs. Eating your cake and keeping it at the same time. Infiltration and unyieldlessness of ISIS has created serious security problem which has many eastern states recoiling from the financial inducements to keep borders open and absorb more refugees.
In our article on the Blood Moon Tetrad, and SEPTEMBER 2015, we warned that dire times awaited Israel. Europe, islam, morality.. and the rest of the world. We believe the current chaos in Europe and resulting increase in global social entropy is a clear pointer to the imminent emergence of the AntiChrist.
The reports coming from Europe are surely grim. According to the Associated Press, “The Islamic State group has trained at least 400 fighters to target Europe in deadly waves of attacks, deploying interlocking terror cells like the ones that struck Brussels and Paris with orders to choose the time, place and method for maximum chaos” While the AP quotes a figure of up to “some 5,000 Europeans” who have gone to Syria (https://www.yahoo.com/news/trains-400-fighters-attack-europe-191549896.html.) Prophecy News in its own report (as also does Donald Trump), avers that more British Muslims are actually joining ISIS than the British army!
The truth of the matter is that we have all been inundated with unbelievable acts being perpetrated by “Islamic immigrants” in Europe, that we are all probably getting numbed to these reports. Ralph Sidway of Facing Islam Blog, has posted references documenting Islamic atrocities in Europe over the period September 2015 and March 2016. No matter how bad you thought the problem was, you would surely be shocked merely skimming through this list of self-explanatory headlines!
You can skim through the “Link Dump” on our blog here: http://churcharise.blogspot.com.ng/2016/04/link-dump-on-impact-of-islamic.html or read the entire article at http://www.jihadwatch.org/2016/04/the-muslim-migrant-invasion-and-the-collapse-of-europe
In his introduction to the “Link Dump”, Ralph expressed frustration at even attempting to write a coherent article on the impact of the Islamic migration (Robert Spencer called it “Hijirah”) on Europe. He writes: “Europe as we have known it since 1945 will no longer exist by 2020. Truth be told, it no longer exists now.”
Certainly very many thinking people share this reality with Ralph Sidway: the end has indeed come for Europe. Nevertheless, at Church Arise! we predict a dramatic twist, a kind of Joker to the whole saga. Based on the Scriptures, and a conviction that the Merkels and Hollandes of this world couldn’t be as blind and stupid as they are desperately portraying themselves, we conclude that, consciously or subconsciously, the core leaders of Europe are actually working out a script.
It’s amazing no one is querying Merkel’s new-found blind love for immigrants. On July 16 last year, the news media were replete with Merkel’s firmly telling a sobbing 14 year old Palestinian girl, that she and her family will have to be repatriated as, sorry, Germany “just can’t manage” to accommodate all. (see here). If there was no room for a well-assimilated Palestinian family (the girl Reem Sahwil spoke in perfect german), what has changed that Merkel is now the fanatic advocate for absorption of millions of immigrants, many who have no interest in becoming German, and who no fellow Arab nation would take in for fear of terrorism? We’ll frankly assume that Merkel is merely carrying out instructions from “higher authorities.”
The obvious goal is to push the continent to desperate straits, as dreamt up centuries ago by New Age/One World Government ideologists (see for instance our 2001 article on Fabian gradualism and Hegelian scheme). More than two decades ago, Barry Smith quoted a top European bureaucrat who, responding to what must now appear a mere storm in a tea cup had said “If the devil himself comes,(to help provide a solution) we will accept him.”
Imagine the warm enthusiastic reception awaiting the man who would apparently have a solution to all these apparently intractable globalized problems! That man is the antichrist, and unless he appears soon, there may be no Europe left to fix, to lead the last global government predicted in the Bible (For instance, see Chapters 2 and 7 of the Book of Daniel).
For us of course, we look not for a charismatic messiah-leader coming from among the nations as the solution to the current world crises. Rather, we hold on tenaciously to the values handed to us in the Scriptures, convinced that as the authentic Salt and Light of the world, we are well able to keep the world sane and tended, while we await the sound of the Trump that will translate us to meet with our Lord in the skies. (1 Cor 15:51-52 1 Thess. 4:16-17) He who promised to come shall come. The time is ripe. Marana tha!
