Weekly News Summary 3 January 2019


More and more in Europe are publicly pushing for change and saying now is when the EU needs to take action (see GI: ‘Only way for the EU to survive … is to recast itself as a club of nation-states’  and EU and USA: ‘Comrades no more’ 2019: Need for EU action). Well, the Bible shows that Europe will reorganize and turn power over to the dictatorial Beast (Revelation 17:12-13).

While that will NOT happen in 2019, Europe is taking steps to set itself to dominate trade (e.g. see EU looking to make world’s biggest trade deal with South America) as well as to develop its own military power (see also EU and USA: ‘Comrades no more’ 2019: Need for EU action). Both of which the Bible says it will do (cf. Revelation 13:3-4; 18:10-18).

China’s President made statements to the effect that Taiwan must become more part of the PRC (see BBC: Xi Jinping says Taiwan ‘must and will be’ reunited with China). It remains my view that China and Taiwan will eventually cooperate militarily as they are both “kings of the east” that will one day be gathered together at Armageddon (see Revelation 16:12-16). We will see what happens before then.
