The Vatican’s Pope Francis declared that ecumenism in NOT optional (see Pope Francis: ‘Ecumenism is not optional’). The Vatican continues to push towards an ecumenical religious unity that the Bible condemns (cf. Revelation 13 & 17).
The leaders of Germany and France signed an agreement Tuesday to increase military cooperation and to develop more artificial intelligence in an effort to be ahead of the USA (see France’ Macron and Germany’s Merkel sign military-economic agreement to revive EU).European leaders continue to work on their goal of world domination. Though they rarely, publicly, call it that.
Speaking of the Europeans, they remain very concerned about the USA in general and US President Donald Trump in particular (see DW: Two years in, Donald Trump remains the ‘unprecedented president;’ COGwriter: Donald Trump fulfilling predictions). Donald Trump continues to take actions we said he would, consistent with our understanding of various biblical prophecies. Europe will one day react in a way that Americans do not expect (cf. Daniel 11:39).
The Europeans are in the process of setting up something that will enforce the type of buying and selling restrictions that the Bible warns are coming in Revelation 13:15-18 (see EU setting up 666 persecution office?). That is also the subject of this week’s recommended sermonette: EU Setting Up 666 Enforcer?
Speaking of setting up, an EU Commissioner has proposed a European Space Army (see European Commissioner wants a European Space Army). Europe is taking steps.
In the Middle East, Israel hit Iranian-related targets in Syria and the Iranians have made various threats (see Rabbi claims Messianic process began, Israeli ‘Armageddon’ airstrikes, and Iran threatens Israel’s elimination). Bible prophecy shows that Syria’s capital Damascus will one day be destroyed (Isaiah 17:1) and that God will one day remove His protection from Judah and that there will be great damage in the City of David (Isaiah 22:8-9). Such damage looks to come from Iran and/or Syria. We are getting closer to that time.
In environmental news, there has been record heat in Australia and massive melting of some of the ice in places like Greenland (see In Greenland and Antarctica, supposedly “safe” ice is melting alarmingly; Australia heat wave fast). Humankind will NOT fix this. It will take the return of Jesus and the establishment of the Kingdom of God to stop those that destroy the earth (Revelation 11:17-18).
