The creeping return of the zu Guttenberg’s
08 Feb 2016
By Claudia Ehrenstein and Thomas Vitzthum
Philipp zu Guttenberg could become secretary in Rheinland-Pfalz under Julia Kloeckner. He already is sitting in her competence team. Could that mean there is a comeback of big brother Karl-Theodor? …
Julia Kloeckner, the frontrunner in the CDU Rheinland-Pfalz, … she included Philipp zu Guttenberg in her competence team. With this person you have to ask the question, will the little Guttenberg level the way for the big Guttenberg, in order to return to the political stage. A member of the federal government said: “With one Guttenberg you always get the other Guttenberg too. The family sticks together very closely.” …
Karl-Theodor’s glamor engulfed the whole family
The little brother looks similar to its big brother, he too has a bit of an elastic walk. And yet, both are very different. The big one is a talented rhetorician, who can draw people under his spell. The little one rather shies away from a big show. …
His father Enoch zu Guttenberg is not only a famous conductor but also a well-known environmentalist and fighter against wind turbines. The father never overcame the dishonor, which was done to his son Karl-Theodor. In February 2010, Philipp zu Guttenberg was elected as president for the German Organisation of Forest Owners, when his brother was at the top of his popularity. A bit of his brilliance also has shown on the younger. After the big one’s dissertation was exposed as plagiarism and he plunged, Philipp too had to feel the dishonor – which led to an even more united family
It was probably not the idea of Julia Kloeckner to prepare the ground for a comeback of Karl-Theodor. But you cannot assume that the name Guttenberg didn’t matter at all regarding her choice. One Guttenberg is giving her at least a touch of glamor, that wouldn’t be there without him. http://www.welt.de/politik/deutschland/article151967355/Die-schleichende-Rueckkehr-der-zu-Guttenbergs.html
So, some think that Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg’s younger brother Philipp is assisting someone who may soon become Prime Minister . This would be an interesting political connection.
Some had thought that the political career of Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg was over because of his plagiarism scandal that led to his resignation as Germany’s Defense Minister in March 2011. Others thought he might re-emerge in politics about now.
What seems to be happening is that he probably is seeing how much public acceptance his brother Philipp is getting, so he can test the waters for him.
He was an upcoming star for the CSU. So much so, Karl-Theodore zu Guttenberg was once considered to be a likely replacement for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, until he resigned in disgrace after being accused of plagiarizing substantial parts of his doctrinal dissertation.
I have been warning since that time that he would be expected to re-emerge in European politics. His positions and the public disgrace he has suffered seem consistent with certain prophesies related to the final King of the North of Daniel 11 and others about the Beast of the Sea in Revelation 13.
The fact that Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg has been disgraced DOES make him a possible candidate.
Notice three translations of Daniel 11:21:
21 And there shall stand up in his place one despised, and the kingly honour shall not be given him: and he shall come privately, and shall obtain the kingdom by fraud. (Daniel 11:21, Douay-Rheims)
21 “‘His place will be taken by a reject, a man spurned and passed over for advancement. He’ll surprise everyone, seemingly coming out of nowhere, and will seize the kingdom. (Daniel 11:21 from THE MESSAGE: The Bible in Contemporary Language © 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson. All rights reserved.)
21 And in his place shall stand up a contemptible person, to whom they had not given the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by flatteries. (Daniel 11:21, ASV)
As mentioned, the Baron was considered to have had a major chance to become Chancellor of Germany before the plagiarism scandal. That is why the German press just referred to him as the “ex-CSU Crown Prince.” So in a real sense, Karl-Theodore zu Guttenberg was “a man spurned and passed over for advancement” as THE MESSAGE version of Daniel 11:21 indicates.
I would add that if he ever establishes a claimed ‘Catholic’ religious order, he will have confirmed various biblical and Catholic prophecies about a leader of Europe.
Since I first wrote about him in late 2009, there have been at least seven or eight speculative predictions that I posted online that Baron Guttenberg has somewhat fulfilled.
The eighth has to do with the possibility of him getting a beard, which the photo at the beginning of this post now shows (he did not start to publicly appear with a beard until sometime in 2015, and I speculated that he might do that),
Of course, none of this proves that Karl-Theodor von und zu Guttenberg will have to be the King of the North, but these items may be more than an interesting coincidence. Time will tell.
Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg could simply be a politician, like many others, that has problems. And all his intentions could be fine. We will see. But Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg does seem, to me at least, to be taking the types of steps that one who could possibly be the final King of the North would actually take. And his ability to gain popularity seems consistent with scripture.
It is important to remember that there are more than a dozen New Testament admonitions to watch and be alert to the signs of the times in the last days (see Matthew 24:42-44; 25:13; Mark 13:33-37; Luke 21:34-36; Acts 20:31; 1 Thessalonians 5:6, 20).
Although Karl Guttenberg may not become the Beast leader, at this time, it still seems that he is one to watch. The fact that his younger brother is getting some attention, is consistent with having Europeans turn to Karl-Thoedor in the future (cf. Revelation 17:12-13).
