Divine intervention!

EUROPE - EU leaders will turn to the POPE over plans to revive struggling bloc. European leaders are set to hold an historic meeting with the Pope later this month when they head to Rome to unveil their make-or-break plans to revive the struggling EU.

Brussels chiefs are hoping the Pontiff can provide them with the “leadership” they are lacking to help solve the debilitating crises tearing the bloc apart. The 28 heads of government will meet with Pope Francis on March 24, the day before they all gather in the Italian capital to celebrate the 60th birthday of the EU and launch its “rebirth”.

One pro-EU think-tank official said that, with Barack Obama gone from the White House, the head of the Catholic Church was the “only moral authority” European politicians had left to follow. The news that the EU’s most powerful men and women are seeking divine intervention from the Pope may raise eyebrows amongst critics who feel they have no answers to the bloc’s growing problems.

Later today Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker is set to unveil an historic white paper laying out five “pathways to unity” for the future of the project in a desperate attempt to turn its fortunes around. And now diplomats have told EurActiv that EU leaders will discuss the plans with Pope Francis in Rome ahead of holding their own heated debate on which “pathway” to choose.

Earlier this week Joseph Muscat, the prime minister of Malta, which currently holds the rotating EU presidency, raised the prospect of consulting the Pope on which path to follow. He told delegates at a conference in Valetta that the Pontiff could “provide leadership that politicians miss” as the bloc grapples with crises as varied as migration, terrorism, economic instability and Brexit. He added: “I do think he [Pope Francis] is the ultimate world leader that within the circumstances has the skills and the vision to say things that transcend the obvious and banalities we all say in politics.”

The Pontiff has previously made what have been interpreted by many as pro-EU remarks in speeches, and even addressed MEPs in the parliament in an historic speech in 2014. Then he called Brussels “somewhat elderly and haggard” and said it needed new energy and impetus if it was to re-engage with voters and increase its flagging popularity. He said: “The great ideas which once inspired Europe seem to have lost their attraction, only to be replaced by the bureaucratic technicalities of its institutions.”

Our comment

The warning first went out - in 1927 - 90 years ago. The final building blocks of the resurrected Holy Roman Empire are now being put in place! The European leaders, powerless to solve the serious situation in which they find themselves, are now looking to the Pope for leadership. Here is what Mr Armstrong wrote:

“We don’t understand German thoroughness. From the very start of World War II, they have considered the possibility of losing this second round, as they did the first – and they have carefully, methodically planned, in such eventuality, the third round – World War III!

The Bible foretells that third round – and it spells DOOM for us, as God’s punishment, because we, as a nation, have forsaken Him and His ways! The third round is termed, in prophecy, an invasion by ‘BABYLON’ – a resurrected Roman Empire – a European Union. I have been proclaiming that since 1927.” (The Autobiography, Volume 2, Chapter 49)

“This [full political union] will be made possible by the ‘good offices’ of the Vatican, who alone can be the symbol of unity to which they can look.” (United States and Britain in Prophecy - Chapter 14)

Today, Europe’s leaders ARE LOOKING TO THE VATICAN for the leadership which they lack!

When we read this news article, can we understand what is happening?

Can we see prophecy being fulfilled?

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
