The New American: In a speech filled with praise for Karl Marx, whose Communist Manifesto of 1848 was fundamental in the rise of communism in Europe, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker insisted that Marx’s philosophy was also influential in the rise of the European Union. The European Commission that Juncker heads is the EU’s executive arm.
Juncker (shown) was in Trier, Germany (where Marx was born on May 5, 1818), to join in celebrating the supposed accomplishments of Marx, where he participated in the unveiling of a 14-foot statue of Marx. The statute was donated by the Communist Chinese.
Juncker credited Marx’s philosophy for teaching Europe that it was the “task of our time” to improve social rights.
“The European Union is not a flawed, but an unstable construction. Unstable also because Europe’s social dimension until today remains the poor relation of the European integration.” more …
Opinion: How interesting that the European Union was prophesied to be unstable 2500 years ago.
In the second chapter of Daniel, King Nebuchadnezzar had a disturbing dream. The king called his wise men and astrologers to not only interpret the dream but tell him what it was.
“My decision is firm: if you do not make known the dream to me, and its interpretation, you shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made an ash heap.” Daniel 2:5
The wise men were panicked and only Daniel could do what none of the king’s wise men could not do. Daniel first prayed to God, and not only told Nebuchadnezzar the dream that troubled him, but the interpretation as well. The dream was about four kingdoms represented by a statue made of metals, that became less valuable but more brutal with each successive kingdom.
It was the 4th kingdom, ancient Rome, represented by the legs of iron (Rome and Constantinople) and its future revival, represented by the feet made of clay and iron, that Jean Claude Juncker heads up today:
“And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.” Daniel 2:40-43
The European Union today is as iron and clay:
- Globalist northern nations and nationalist eastern bloc nations
- Financially strong northern nations and financially weak southern nations
- Open Muslim immigration for northern nations and nationalist borders for eastern bloc nations
On September 13, 2017 Jean Claude Juncker called for a Karl Marx-type leader to run the EU. According to Daniel 7:23 he will get his wish:
“The fourth beast shall be
A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces.”
