In an unprecedented speech outlining his vision for Europe, Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi called for courageous leaders to work towards a United States of Europe.

“For my children’s future I dream, think and work for the United States of Europe,” Renzi said, speaking at the State of the Union in Florence, launching an appeal to convince European leaders to show “not in the cold language of technocracy, that a stronger and more cohesive Europe is the only solution to the solve the problems of our time.” […]

The only effective response, according to the prime minister, is to offer “an idea of ​​Europe that corresponds to an attractive adventure rather than just a financial or economic exercise,” showing that the EU “is not only a common past, but a common destiny (from) which it is impossible to escape.”

Sure ain’t going to be a “United States of Europe” with a limited central government and states’ rights intact.

“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” Revelation 17:12-13

Among other things...with this announcement you’d almost think that the dictators of Europe *want* Britain to leave.

That was my first thought too...a UNITED STATES of Europe...as though America has anything to do with it?!

Although it could explain the large amount of confusion found in Revelations regarding dragons, beasts, and anti-Christ.

For all this to take place, real America must be made small upon the world stage...I do believe that is happening at this very moment.

Can’t argue that the US under oblunder is quickly loosing it’s, well, everything. But I think the catalyst to trigger these final events/stages will be an unprecedented economic collapse setting off a worldwide domino effect on the worlds markets throwing everything into complete chaos. It’s all most likely being engineered as we speak and proceeding as planned. But there’s going to come along a good looking chasismatic guy who seems to have the answers to all the worlds ill’s and will overwhelmingly be chosen to put everything back together.

Hell....

Where the food is British
The police are German
The cars are French
The lovers are Swiss

And the whole thing is run by Italians.

Garner Ted Armstrong was the son of Herbert W. Armstrong. He was excommunicated by the Church in the 1970's. The radio and TV programs, called the Wonderful World Tomorrow, were cancelled upon the death of Herbert Armstrong in 1986.

The Worldwide Church of God was destroyed by Armstrong's successors. A former WCG minister formed the Philadelphia Church of God. The PCG sued the remnant of the WCG for the rights to Armstrong's work.

Most of the books authored by Herbert W. Armstrong, and many new ones, are available free at thetrumpet.com. The book linked in post nine is one of them.

I have no doubt it is happening, especially when you consider all the banker suicides...
