Establishing A European Mega-state
The ongoing movement to form a politically merged European mega-state continues unabated.
Ursula Gertrude von der Leyen was elected by the EU Parliament to be the next President of the European Union. She is a strong proponent for the creation of an EU army, as well as other policies which represent a further transfer of national sovereignty from member nation-states to the EU bureaucracy. Von der Leyen will preside over the next phase of transforming the European Union into a politically unified entity.
The EU remains the only real candidate to fulfill the prophecy found in Revelation 13:1:
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
The Beast will rise to power over a mega-state comprise of 10 politically merged nation-states — the European Union remains the most likely candidate to fulfill this prophecy.
Its Summer Again
Summer time is now characterized by record breaking heat, and this year has not disappointed. The heatwave hitting Western Europe has been especially brutal. As the Arctic region warms in an accelerated fashion, the temperature difference between the Arctic north and the bordering temperate zones decrease. This causes the jet stream to weaken, and as it slows, it bends and meanders, which is a major factor which enables heat from Sahara Africa to move northward to Europe.
This heat can continue to drift northward, until it impacts the Arctic regions — which can further drive the self-reinforcing, positive feedback loops which are causing the Arctic region to warm so drastically. One impact from this warming has been massive forest fires in Siberia, and in other Arctic regions. Even now, forest fires in Siberia rage uncontrolled.
In Revelation 8:7, it says:
The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
This site has speculated that it will be the taiga, the forests that ring the Arctic circle, that will burn (as well as the Amazonian rainforest). The taiga actually represents about 1/3 of the world’s forrest, so its destruction would fulfill this prophecy. Given this, should Believers have the means to relocate (in search of sanctuary), it would be wise to not flee to the mountains and forests of the north. Those areas will most likely become a raging, fiery inferno. The forest fires now raging in Siberia, Canada, and Alaska are indeed harbingers of the sounding of the First Trumpet.
“Low Inflation” is fake news
We have argued that the official government statistics on “inflation” has failed to reflect the actual rising costs of living that the majority of people experience. For those who do not own their residences and have to rent, they have been experiencing rents that have risen in line with the massive real estate bubble, intentionally created by the Federal Reserve’s monetary policies. The National League of Cities have declared a housing crisis (which was completely ignored by the fake news mass media).
40% of the US population must rent, and have been forced to pay an ever growing percent of their income for their rent. The significant rise of homelessness in major cities is exacerbated as more and more people are no longer able to afford to pay rent — but the Federal Reserve still claims that inflation is “low”. Middle class working families can work for decades, and still are not able to save any money — at all. Worse still, many workers must borrow, via higher and higher credit card balances, to just pay for their everyday needs. Only those with money, those who are able to own real estate and other financial assets, are able to benefit from the excessive monetary policy. The rise in the price of real estate and the stock market more than offsets their higher costs of living. The Federal Reserve has been the main actor in taking money from the bottom 50% and putting it in the pockets of the top 10% (with the lion share going to the top 1%).
The costs of living continue to rise much higher than the official inflation rate. It is very possible that the end game of central bank hyper-monetary policies will by hyperinflation, which could be another factor in bringing about the rise of the next tyrant (i.e. the Anti-Christ).
