What Is Happening to Europe?

European nations as a union is considered to be the wealthiest nation on earth based on their GDP. The United Sates ranks in second (See chart below). We learned that the people from Europe are the lost ten tribes of Israel and the United States is Manasseh, the half brother of Ephraim. These nations' economy and power rose so fast to its current level as no other nation on earth has achieved. Not only they are the richest but also the most powerful nations. They are also allies. That did not happen by luck or chance. This is the result of the promise of God to Abraham, to Isaac, to Jacob and finally to Ephraim and Manasseh, sons of Joseph, one of the twelve tribes or sons of Jacob or Israel. Remember that Joseph married an Egyptian. Read chapter 1 for details. Anyway, Manasseh got the lesser blessing although he was the firstborn and the only reason for that is because he became the last day Egypt. All the prophecies pertaining to Egypt is about Manasseh and Egypt today is the United States, and the younger brother, Ephraim is Europe, home also of the ten lost tribes. Egypt by the way is also Israel based on the prophecies.

The European Union as of 2008. It has grown through the years and will expand to the rest of the world in the last days through the leadership of the Antichrist.

Let's look back to the promise of God to Ephraim and Manasseh in Gen 48:13-20.

And Joseph took both of them, Ephraim on his right toward Israel’s left hand and Manasseh on his left toward Israel’s right hand, and brought them close to him. But Israel reached out his right hand and puts it on Ephraim’s head, though he was the younger, and crossing his arms, he put his left hand on Manasseh’s head, even though Manasseh was the firstborn. Then he blessed Joseph and said, “May the God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God who has been my shepherd all my life to this day, the Angel who has delivered me from all harm- may he bless these boys. May they be called by my name and the names of my fathers Abraham and Isaac, and may they increase greatly upon the earth.” .

When Joseph saw his father placing his right hand on Ephraim’s head, he was displeased; so he took hold of his father’s hand to move it from Ephraim’s head to Manasseh’s head.

Joseph said to him, “No, my father, this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head.”

But his father refused and said, “I know, my son, I know. He too will become a people, and he too will become great. Nevertheless, his younger brother will be greater than he, and his descendants will become a group of nations.”

He blessed them that day and said, “In your name will Israel pronounce this blessing: ‘May God make you like Ephraim and Manasseh.’” So he put Ephraim ahead of Manasseh.

To both of them:

1.  They will be called by the name Israel, Isaac and Abraham. That means the birthright belongs to both of them. In wherever their descendants live, those places will be Israel, the land of God’s chosen people.

2.  They would increase greatly in number not only in Egypt but also upon the face of the earth. The promise of God is contagious. Although Ephraim is the supposed sole owner of the birthright, Manasseh got also the share of the blessing. Both of them will be great and numerous.

But here’s the difference. Israel crossed his hands in blessing the kids, his right hand over Ephraim. During those moments, he was spiritually enlightened with the truth. It was very unusual and everyone was perplexed. It was the Spirit of God speaking through him. He prophesied what would transpire to their generations in the far future.

To Ephraim:

1.  He will be greater than his brother.

2.  His descendants will become a group of nations. Ephraim’s descendants therefore will fulfill God’s promise to Jacob when He said “ . . . a community of nations will come from you, and kings will come from your body.” (Gen 35:11). Read also  Gen 28:3; 48:4.

To Manasseh:

He will become numerous and a great nation. Thus he would be the great nation in the same promise “A nation . . .  will come from you, and kings will come from your body.”

In summary, Ephraim will become a greater group of nations and Manasseh, simply a great nation.

In the same setting, Jacob, or Israel blessed his other sons and revealed what will happen to them in the days to come. The “days to come” covers the time well beyond their lifetime.

Israel blessed his sons within the heart of the land of Egypt, in the time of great famine. During that very moment, the fullness of Egypt is already absorbed in the blood of Manasseh. The old Egypt is being slowly but surely conquered and defeated without a battle fought. Manasseh shall soon be the great new nation of Egypt in the last days and he is no other than the United States. He had also the great material blessing of power— politically, militarily, economically in great abundance. But in the same time, because of these great blessings, he is still Israel, a holy nation of God.

Obviously, it could not have been the Egypt as we know it today. Today’s Egypt is one among the average or poorest nations of the world with a gross domestic product (GDP) of only around US$162.17M which is ranked 49th in the world as of 2008. It is a small, harmless nation, a mere remnant of the old great nation of Egypt. Also notice that many prophecies concerning Egypt depict a nation that is very powerful, wealthy and mean. Almost all prophets mentioned Egypt in their writings. Look at the verses below as an example pertaining to a rich Egypt being defeated by the Antichrist in the last days in Dan 11:41-43-

He [Antichrist] will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand. He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Nubians in submission.

Notice also the "Beautiful Land" which pertains to the lands of Israel because of the blessings. Egypt is especially mentioned of "escaping" defeat but will fail. It apparently pictures great power but will not be enough to defeat the Antichrist. Read the topic "The Real Roots of America" for further details and chapters 1 and 2 in the book for more details.

Likewise, the nation of Israel as we know it today is just as small and hardly a world power, militarily, economically, and with just a small population. It's GDP is ranked 42nd as of 2008. It is not so convincing for us today that they are fully blessed according to the physical promised.

God Fulfilled His Promise, But...

Look at the chart at the left and it can convince us that God has fulfilled His promises to the two brothers and to the patriarch. Due to their sins when they were a young kingdom, God sent an invader, the Assyrian and took all the ten tribes, the Northern Kingdom as captives to Assyria in 720 BC and never to return. After so many years they were dispersed further among the nations. But after the full measure of their punishment has been served, God acted and fulfilled all His promises. They became very rich and powerful and that milestone happen only at the turn of the last century. Read chapter 2 of the book for details.

Now let's take a look at Europe. What is happening now in Europe?

When I was a young boy, I read in history book that these nations were so religious and God fearing so that they spread the Word of God wherever they set foot on the land they explore or discover. They honour God, named their sons after Bible characters and also named places after the biblical characters. However, these days they are slowly and surely getting farther away from God. They are like a fading flower. For example, check what Wikipedia Encyclopaedia says about their spirituality:

Discussion over the draft texts of the European Constitution and later the Treaty of Lisbon included proposals to mention Christianity or God, or both, in the preamble of the text, but the idea faced opposition and was dropped.

Many countries (in the EU) have experienced falling church attendance and membership in recent years. The 2005 Eurobarometer showed that of the European citizens (of the 25 members at that time), 52% believed in a god, 27% in "some sort of spirit or life force", and 18% had no form of belief. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Union).

The EU has gone farther than becoming less spiritual. They have challenged God directly by claiming the role as the new Babel, or Babylon. The seat of the European Parliament located in Strasbourg was intentionally shaped as the unfinished tower of Babel. They also adopted a poster depicting the picture of the original Tower of Babel promoting their cause of many tongues, one voice. Check the poster at right.

Not only that EU has also adopted a logo and symbol of the harlot of Revelation 17 riding a beast. This beast however is a bull not a seven headed beast. For more details read chapter 5.

What does this all mean in the prophecies? These developments in Europe did not happen too long ago and we are seeing the prophecies being fulfilled before our eyes. Just like the ancient Israel when they set up temples of idols in high places, these days, they allow foreign gods to prosper in Europe until they are overwhelmed to eventually forget their own true God Jehovah. The end is getting very close. Because the sins of modern Israel has again reached the heavens, these prophecies will surely happen:

  1. Three nations in Europe are destined to fall and then followed by the rest of the European Union at the hands of the would-be Antichrist, the ruler coming from old Nineveh, now a place in Iraq;

  2. The EU which many calls a resurrected Roman Empire will assist the Antichrist in defeating all nations and to establish a one world government. That is their goal and they will get it. At that time, the bull on which the harlot is sitting will become a terrifying seven-headed beast with ten horns;

  3. The alliance between Israel, the EU and the US will be broken and there will be civil strife in the US;

  4. After the fall of Europe, then Israel's fall will follow;

  5. Lastly, the US shall collapse, the Antichrist, now at his height of power will set his throne in New York City at the United Nations Building, the New Babylon forming a one-world government and will destroy Christianity;

  6. As the Lord Jesus Christ's coming gets near, the Antichrist will be alarmed by the army from the northeast (Read also about Greenland in chapter 6), kills many and will hand over the governance of ten regions of the world to the ten leaders of Europe but only for a very short period of time because Jesus Christ will finally come to redeem His people.

  7. The dreadful Day of the Lord begins.
