The New American: Giuseppe Conte, who became Prime Minister on June 1, heads a coalition between the Five Star Movement and Lega parties. Conte’s cabinet, comprised of chiefs of anti-establishment parties, is the first populist government in Western Europe. The leader of Lega (Italian for “League”), Matteo Salvini (shown), is to be interior minister, while Five Star head Luigi Di Maio will head a new ministry combining the previous departments of industry and labor. Both Salvini and Di Maio will also be deputy prime ministers.
On June 2, Salvini joined Conte and the rest of the new cabinet to view Italy’s annual Republic Day parade. Afterwards, Salvini warned migrants at a rally in northern Italy: “The free ride is over. It’s time to pack your bags. Sicily will no longer be what he described as “Europe’s refugee camp.” more …
Opinion: European Commission boss Jean-Claude Juncker described Italy’s June 1st election as the “worst-case scenario” for Europe.
Junker, like Angela Merkel (Germany) and Emmanuel Macron (France), are the progressive liberals who are fighting a growing populist movement following elections in Italy, Hungary, Austria and the Czech republic.
It does not take a political analyst to see a crack in the underpinnings of the EU structure, which is in need of one captain (as Junker called for in 2017) to ride in on a white horse in a repeat of what happened in 1930’s Germany.
Daniel 7:23-24 prophesied a global government in the last days before the return of Jesus Christ. In Chapter 10 of Bible Prophecy 101 (here) we attempted to list the order the events leading to Daniel’s 10 divisions of revived Rome.
We pick up the chronology of events after the wars of Psalm 83 and Gog/Magog as the Jewish people are being called home:
Rapture of the Church and Bema Seat Judgment (1 Thess. 4:16-18; 2 Cor. 5:10)
Israel’s blindness is removed (Rom. 11:25)
The diaspora is complete and the House of David returns to the land “not leaving any behind” (Ezek. 39:28)
The Tribulation/Day of the Lord Begins: (Jeremiah 30:7; Rev. 6:1-8)
Revival of the Roman Empire, 10 nation confederacy formed. (Dan. 7:24; Rev. 13:1, 17:3)
Rise of Antichrist, (11th king/Little Horn): Dan. 7:8, 24; Rev. 13:1-8)
