THE DESIRE FOR UNITY OF NATIONS

by ralph jackson  
12/31/2018 / Bible Studies


AS WE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN LOOK FORWARD TO 29TH MARCH 2019 TO REGAIN CONTROL OF OUR LAWS AND ECONOMY FROM FOREIGN INTERVENTION BY THE EU, I WOULD LIKE US TO TAKE A BRIEF LOOK AT BIBLE PROPHECY AND HOW MUCH OF IT HAS BEEN FULFILLED.

THE BOOK OF DANIEL

DANIEL TOLD US IN CHAPTER 2 THAT THE COUNTRIES THAT FORMED THE 10 TOES OF NEBUCHADNESSARS STATUE WOULD BE MIXED WITH IRON AND CLAY.  AS YOU WILL BE AWARE, IRON MIXED WITH CLAY IS BRITTLE. IT HOLDS FOR A SHORT TIME BUT AFTER AWHILE THE STRESS BEGINS TO SHOW AND THE CLAY STARTS TO CRACK AND SEPARATE ITSELF FROM THE IRON. THIS IS JUST WHAT HAS HAPPENED WITH THE EU. THOSE WHO HAVE ATTEMPTED TO BRING THE WHOLE OF EUROPE INTO ONE UNITED STATES HAVE FAILED. OF COURSE THEY WILL KEEP ON TRYING AND EVEN THOUGH IT APPEARS THEY MIGHT SUCCEED, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO FAIL BECAUSE THEY ARE FIGHTING AGAINST A SUPER POWER, A GOD WHO CREATED AND CONTROLS THE EVENTS ON EARTH. HE TOLD US BEFOREHAND THAT 4 KINGDOMS WOULD REIGN ON EARTH. THESE WERE:

BAYBLYON

MEDO PERSIAN’S

GREECE


ROME.

THE LAST KINGDOM WOULD BE DIVIDED INTO 10 KINGDOMS, WHICH WOULD EVENTUALLY BE DESTROYED AT THE RETURN OF THE MESSIAH – JESUS CHRIST, WHO CAME TO THIS EARTH AS A BABY DURING THE REIGN OF THE LAST MAJOR EMPIRE, (ROME), TO SAVE MANKIND FROM SATAN’S POWER AND TO VINDICATE GOD FROM SATAN’S ACCUSATIONS THAT GOD’S KINDOM WAS FLAWED AND THE EARTH WAS HIS BY RIGHT OF FORFEIT BY ADAM.

SINCE THE BEGINNING, SATAN HAS ATTEMPTED TO UNITE THE WORLD UNDER ONE BANNER AND HAS USED MANY HUMANS IN AN ATTEMPT TO FULFIL HIS DESIRE TO BE WORSHIPPED AS A GOD.

THE ATTEMPTS OF A ONE WORLD ORDER

NIMROD WAS THE FIRST HUMAN SATAN USED TO TRY AND BUILD A UNITED WORLD WITHOUT GOD.. HE WAS THE KING OF SHINAR. ACCORDING TO GENESIS AND CHRONICES HE IS SHOWN TO BE THE SON OF CUSH, WHO WAS THE GRANDSON OF HAM AND THE GREAT GRANDSON OF NOAH. IT WAS NIMROD WHO STARTED THE NEW KINDOM OF BABYLON (GEN 10:10). WE CAN READ IN (GEN 10:8-11), THAT NIMROD ENTICED HIS PEOPLE AGAINST GOD AND HAD THEM BUILD A TOWER, WHICH WOULD REACH THE HEAVENS AND THEREFORE, HE THOUGHT, GOD WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO FLOOD THE WORLD AGAIN AND KILL EVERYONE. JUST AS SATAN HAD ENTICED EVE TO GO AGAINSTS GOD’S WORD, NIMROD DID NOT BELIEVE GOD’S PROMISE NEVER TO FLOOD THE WORLD AGAIN (GEN 8:21-22). AS A CONSEQUENCE, GOD CONFUSED THEIR LANGUAGE AND THE TOWER REMAINED UNFINISHED.

SATAN HAS, THROUGHOUT HISTORY BEEN THE INSTIGATOR OF DOUBT IN HUMAN MINDS ABOUT GOD’S CHARACTER AND AFTER ROME HAD CONQUEREDTHE GREEK EMPIRE, THEY BECAME THE FIRST MAJOR EMPIRE WITH THE STRENGTH AND MANPOWER TO UNITE THE CONTINENT.

THEY STARTED WITH THE UNIFICATION OF THE ITALIAN PENINSULA IN 275 BC AND EXPANDED FOR NEARLY 400 YEARS UP TO 117AD, WHEN EMPEROR TRAJAN DIED. AT THIS TIME THEY CONTROLLED MOST OF THE TERRITORY WE NOW CALL THE EUROPEAN UNION - FRANCE, GREECE, SPAIN, HOLLAND AND PARTS OF GERMANY. IT WAS IN 476 THAT THE GERMAN CHIEFTAIN ‘ODACER’ DEPOSED EMPEROR ROMULUS AUGUSTULUS AND TOPPLED THE ROMANEMPIRE IN EUROPE BUT IT STILL LEFT BEHIND A TRADITION OF POLITICAL UNITY THAT LASTS TO TODAY.

EMPEROR CHARLEMAGNE

THE NEXT ATTEMPT TO UNIT EUROPE CAME WITH CHALEMANGNE’SFRANKISH KINGDOM. (800-814). ALTHOUGH THIS WAS LESS SUCCESSFUL IT HELPED TO CEMENTTHE IDEA OF A UNIFIED EUROPE. POPE LEO III HAD CROWNED
CHARLEMAGNE THE EMPEROR OF THE ROMANS AND ALTHOUGH THE ROMAN EMPIRE WAS LONG GONE, THE TITLE WAS SIGNIFICANT AND HELD SYMOBLIC WEIGHT. CHARLEMANGNE UNIFIED A LARGE PART OF THE CONTINENT INCLUDING NORTHERN ITALY, FRANCE AND MOST OF GERMANY AND HOLLAND. SOME CALLED HIM THE FATHER OF EUROPE AND THOSE WHO WISH TO SEE A UNIFIED EUROPE STILL LOOK TO HIS LEGACY.CHARLEMAGNE’S CAPITAL WAS THE CITY OF AACHEN IN GERMANY ANDTHOSE WHO FOSTER THE IDEA OF A UNIFIED EUROPE, HAVE SINCE 1949, BEEN AWARED THE CHARLEMAGNES PRIZE. GERMAN CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL AND JEAN-CLAUDE TRICHET, THE FORMER HEAD OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK HAVE RECEIVED THIS AWARD.

THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE

THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE (800-1806), WITH THE PAPACY DOMINATED EUROPE IN THE MIDDLE AGES AND EMPEROR LOUIS I, THE SUCCESSOR TO CHARLEMAGNE, HELD TO THE IDEA OF EMPIRE TO KEEP EUROPE TOGETHER BUT THE CONTINENTS VARIOUS RULERS HAD OTHER IDEAS. BY 888 FRANCE, GERMANY AND ITALY WENT THEIR SEPARATE WAYS BUT DURING THE MIDDLE AGES IT WAS GERMANY AND NORTHERN ITALYS SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE POPE THAT KEPT THEM TOGETHER IN THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE. HOWEVER, OTHER KINGDOMS, IN PARTICULAR ENGLAND AND FRANCE DISPUTED GERMANY’S CLAIM TO THE HOLY EMPIRE, WHICH IGNITED A DEBATE OVER EUROPEAN LEADERSHIP, WHICH CONTINUES TODAY. GERMANY STILL MAINTAINS A CONNECTION TO ROME AND THE KINGDOM OF CHARLEMAGNE’S HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE, WHICH HAS KEPT THE IDEA OF A UNIFIED EUROPE ALIVE.

EMPEROR NAPOLEON

IT WAS NAPOLEON WHO CAME VERY CLOSE TO UNITING EUROPE (1799-1815). HE WAS AN AVID STUDENT OF HISTORY AND KEPT HIS ATTEMPTS AT UNIFICATION IN MIND DURING HIS CONQUESTS ACROSS EUROPE AND BEYOND. IT WAS IN 1799 THAT HE DECLARED HIMSELF ‘FIRST CONSUL’ A REFERENCE TO THE DUAL ELECTED LEADERS OF THE ROMAN REPUBLIC. IN 1804 HE INVITED POPE PIOUS VII TO CROWN HIM EMPEROR AT NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL IN PARIS. AT HIS CORINATION, HE WAS SURROUNDED BY SATATUES AND TAPESTRIES DEPICTING CHARLEMAGNE AND WAS PRESENTED WITH A ROMAN-STYLE LAUREL WREATH CROWN, SWORD AND SCEPTER, WHICH APPARANTLY ONCE BELONGED TO CHARDEMAGNE. UNFORTUNATELY FOR HIM NAPOLEON MET HIS WATERLOO IN 1815. NEVERTHELESS, THE DESIRE FOR A UNITED EUROPE STILL HAS PROPONENTS IN THE EU TODAY.

ADOLF HITLER

ADOLF HITLER LOOKED TO THE GERMAN CONTROLLED HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE AS A PRECEDENT AND AN INSPIRATION TO UNIFY EUROPE. ALTHOUGH HE NEVER SAW HIMSELF AS ANOTEHR NAPOLEON, MANY OF HIS CONTEMPORARIES DID WHEN HE INVADED RUSSIA, WHICH NAPOLEON HAD TRIED TO VANQUISH MORE THAN A CENTURY EARLIER. BOTH NAPOLEON AND HITLER WERE EGOMANIACS, THERFORE SOME SAW PARALLELS BETWEEN HIM AND NAPOLEON. HOWEVER, HITLERS ATTEMPT AT A 1000 YEAR REICH ENDED IN DISASTER BUT REACTIONS TO HIS ENDEAVOR WERE PART OF THE IMPETUS FOR CREATING THE EUROPEAN UNION.

AND SO TO 1951

THE MODERN EUROPEAN UNION BEGINS

THE EU WAS STARTED IN AN UNLIKELY WAY AND IN PEACE RATHER THAN CONFLICT. IN 1951 – BELGIUM, FRANCE, ITALY, LUXEMBOURG, HOLLAND AND GERMANY SIGNED THE ‘TREATY OF PARIS’, WHICH INTEGRATED THEIR COAL AND STEEL INDUSTRIES. THIS IDEA WAS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS A UNITED STATES OF EUROPE. THE PRETEXT WAS THAT FUTURE CONFLICTS WOULD BE AVOIDED IF THE INTERESTS OF THESE COUNTRIES COMBINED.

BY 1957, IT’S TITLE CHANGED TO THE ‘EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY’. FURTHER INTEGRATION, HOWEVER, HAD TO BE PUT ON HOLD UNTIL THE END OF THE COLD WAR IN 1989.

MAASTRICT TREATY

JUST A COUPLE OF YEARS LATER IN 1992, THE MAASTRICHT TREATY WAS SIGNED AND THE POLITICAL EU CAME INTO EXISTENCE. IN 1995 A NEW EUROPEAN CURRENCY – THE EURO WAS ADOPTED BY ALL MEMBER STATES, AND FULLY ADOPTED BY ALL MEMBERS EXCEPT THE UK IN 2002.

EUROPENAN PARLIAMENT POSTER

A POSTER WAS PRODUCED FOR AND BY THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT TO OPENLY SHOW IT’S INTENDED NEW WORLD ORDER GOAL. IT STATED ‘MANY TONGUES, ONE VOICE’ AND HAS THREE UPSIDEDOWN STARS, DEPICTING THE PAGAN GOAT GOD ‘BHAPHOMET’  OR ‘PAN’. AND THE TOWER OF BABEL. THE NEW EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT BUILDING, IS ALSO BUILT TO LOOK LIKE IT IS UNFINISHED, AND IS STRIKINGLY SIMILAR AND OBVIOUSLY INTENDED TO BE SO, TO THE TOWER OF BABEL.

BREXIT – A THORN IN THE EU SIDE

WHEN PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON ALLOWED THE PEOPLE OF BRITIAN TO VOTE ON STAYING OR LEAVING THE EU IN 2016, IT CAME AS A GREAT SHOCK TO THOSE IN POWER BOTHER IN THE UK AND ON THE CONTINENT THAT THE VOTE WAS OVERWHELMINGLY TO LEAVE. SO GREAT WAS THE DISAPPOINTMENT OF MANY OF THE UK’S ELECTED POLITICIANS, THEY CONTINUE TO THWART THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE BY PROMOTING SO MUCH FEAR THROUGH THE MEDIA , WHICH HAS CREATED A LARGE DIVISION IN SOCIETY. THEIR USE OF THE ‘HEGALIAN DIALECTIC’ HAS BEEN SO BLATENT IT COULD NOT BE HIDDEN FROM THOSE WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH IT.

FOR TWO YEARS SINCE THE VOTE TO LEAVE, THEY HAVE INVENTED MANY DOOMSDAY SENARIO’S TO PUT FEAR IN PEOPLES MIND THAT LEAVING THE EU WILL DESTROY GREAT BRITAIN. SADLY MANY HAVE BELIEVED THESE’S GROUNDLESS STORIES – INCLUDING SOME OF MY OWN FAMILY. BUT WE AS CHRISTIAN’S KNOW THAT GOD IS IN CHARGE OF ALL HUMAN AFFAIRS AND HE TOLD US MANY YEARS AGO IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL THAT IT IS HE WHO CONTROLS THE SEASONS AND REMOVES AND SETS UP KINGS (DAN 2:21). THEREFORE THOSE WHO WISH TO CREATE A WORLD ORDER CONTRARY TO GOD’S KINGDOM WILL NEVER SUCCEED.

THE 10 TOES OF THE NEBUCHADNESSARS STATUE, WHICH I HAVE ALREADY REFERRED TO, REPRESENT THE 10 KINGDOMS THAT CAME FROM THE BREAK UP OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE. SOME OF THESE COUNTIRES WILL BE WEAK AND SOME STRONG THEREFORE THEIR UNITY WILL HOLD TOGETHER FOR A TIME, HOWEVER, JUST AS CLAY WHEN MIXED WITH IRON WEAKENS THE STRUCTURE, SOME COUNTRIES WILL WANT THEIR INDEPENDENCE BACK, AS WE HAVE SEEN WITH THE UK.

PROPHECY YET FULFILLED

THERE ARE STILL MANY PARTS OF PROPHECY THAT ARE YET TO BE FULFILLED AND WE DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG THIS PLANET HAS LEFT IN ITS PRESENT SINFUL CONDITION. HOWEVER, WE CAN BE ASSURRED THAT THROUGHOUT HISTORY, PROPHECY CAME TO PASS JUST AS GOD’S WORD TOLD US. WE CAN THEREFORE BE ASSURED THE REST OF PROPHECY WILL ALSO BE FULFILLED ON TIME. THIS SHOULD GIVE US HOPE THAT THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT AND ALL THE FEAR STIRRED UP BY THE VOICES OF DOOM WILL BE SILENCED AS WE MOVE INTO THE FINAL PART OF THIS EARTH’SHISTORY.

JESUS WILL RETURN TO DESTROY ALL THAT MANKIND HAS MADE UPON THIS EARTH AND HE WILL CREATE A NEW WORLD ORDER THAT TAKES US BACK TO THE GARDEN OF EDEN BEFORE SIN ENTERED INTO THIS WORLD.

LET US LOOK FORWARD TO THAT DAY. AMEN
