While everyone’s attention is currently on Russia/Ukraine,
That Germany has suddenly just quadrupled their military spending:
Contained in the historical accounts of Germany’s military ambitions in the 20th century, we see a spirit at work in that nation, driving them to exert control over Europe. This reached a fever pitch under Adolf ****** in WWII, and then, like magic, it all went away, seemingly for ever more.
Certainly no one could imagine a Germany under, say, Angela Merkel, ravenously snatching up satellite nations like the Rhineland and Poland. Her successor started off as a snoozer, nothing much happening under the hood, if you follow what I mean. But Russia attacks Ukraine and in under 72 hours,
Germany reverses 77 years of policy regarding military buildups, weaponry, and now they are even considering restarting the draft and conscripting soldiers. In the blink of any eye, everything changed, Europe’s giant is once again awake. Just pray the Lord comes and gets us as He has promised, and soon.Do you think that’s a coincidence?
From a Biblical Perspective,
God likes to do things in THREES and SEVENS:
WWI– Involved Germany and Jews (First global war)
WWII– Involved Germany and Jews (20 years later, lasted 7 years)And now,
WWIII– May once again, somehow involve Germany and the Jews.
Some Rabbis have predicted a Third World War,
Yisrael Meir (HaKohen) Kagan, one of the most influential rabbis of the early 20th Century known as the Chofetz Chaim, taught that the pre-Messiah War of Gog and Magog will be fought in three stages:
The Chofetz Chaim predicted that yet another war was imminent and would come. He predicted that 25 years after the end of the last war, another war will break out that will make the first seem like child’s play. The Chofetz Chaim’s prediction was, admittedly, slightly off. World War I ended in 1918, 21 years before the outbreak of World War II in 1939.
He went on to predict that 75 years after the second war, the final and greatest war will break out, making the second seem even smallerWhen you further study the Bible,
You’ll realize that Satan (Ruler of this World) is the one who ultimately moves the chess pieces around.
Russia/China won’t dominate as NWO superpower, Satan will cause them to fail miserably.
Instead, a NWO government + EU will rise (Revived Roman Empire),
The next “biblical wars” will be @ armageddon (gog/magog) – See Damascus thread
Until then (and you can take me to the bank),
A WWIII is on the horizon
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Matthew 24:6Endtimes Prophetic Timing
The 7-year tribulation starts at Rev 6 (aligns with Matthew 24 and Luke 21) with the opening of the first seals (Wars, famine, pestilance, death). Notice right before, in Rev 5, the elders that are mentioned is the church. Therefore,
Rev 6 and onwards refers to the full 7-year tribulation appointed only for Israel/Jews/Tribulation Saints. This implies that the church is not appointed to the full 7 year (Pre-Tribulation rapture Thread).
There will be nuclear war (WWIII) but the church most likely won’t be there to experience it fully bc they will be raptured away by then (though the church may start to see it come to fruition before the rapture)
Germany to Boost Military Spending in Latest Historic Shift
Germany will channel 100 billion euros ($113 billion) this year into a fund to modernize the military, Scholz said Sunday in a speech to a special session of the lower house of parliament.
By 2024, the government will spend at least 2% of gross domestic product each year on defense, he added, in line with a NATO target that Berlin has consistently failed to meet.
Scholz had been widely criticized by opponents and allies alike in recent weeks for what they perceived as dithering and weakness in the face of Russia’s mounting aggression toward Ukraine.
In the past few days he has announced a series of radical changes to long-entrenched German policies following the full-scale attack ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the former Soviet republic.
Even before the invasion, Scholz halted the certification process for the Nord Stream 2 pipeline built to bring more of the Russian gas his country heavily relies on.
On Saturday, he abandoned Germany’s traditional rejection of supplying weapons to conflict zones and gave way on expelling Russian banks from SWIFT, the system used for trillions of dollars worth of transactions between thousands of banks around the world. The willingness to supply Ukraine with military equipment including surface-to-air missiles and anti-tank weapons is in many ways the most dramatic move.
Such a wide-ranging rethink from Scholz and his government came unexpectedly and prompted suggestions that Europe’s biggest economy may finally be ready to punch its weight in the international arena, discarding decades of reluctance linked to its role in the 20th century’s bloodiest conflicts. Ukraine’s ambassador to Germany, who was in parliament Sunday, called it a “truly historic moment.”
“WITH THE INVASION OF UKRAINE, WE ARE IN A NEW ERA,” SCHOLZ, THE SOCIAL DEMOCRAT WHO TOOK OVER FROM ANGELA MERKEL IN DECEMBER, TOLD LAWMAKERS. “ON THURSDAY, PRESIDENT PUTIN CREATED A NEW REALITY WITH HIS INVASION OF UKRAINE. THIS NEW REALITY REQUIRES A CLEAR RESPONSE. WE HAVE GIVEN IT.”Germany’s Pivot:
100 billion euros for new fund for military spending:
–Annual defense outlays to rise to more than 2% of GDP.
–Work with EU partners to build fighter jets, tanks.
–Purchase armed Heron drones from Israel.
–Increase gas storage volume by 2 billion cubic meters.
–Purchase additional natural gas on the world markets.
–Establish a national coal and gas reserve.
–Build LNG terminals in Brunsbuettel and WilhelmshavenGerman defense spending in recent years has been hovering at around 1.5% and actually declined slightly as a share of output last year, according to NATO figures. That has led to criticism that the armed forces are consistently underfunded.
Germany has reduced the number of its battle tanks to 300 from 4,700 since 1989 and the number of warplanes to 230 from 390, according to a report in Der Spiegel magazine. The number of troops has dropped to 180,000 from more than 300,000.
Friedrich Merz, the leader of Merkel’s Christian Democrats, signaled Sunday in his speech to parliament that the party is ready to work with the ruling coalition on agreeing the financing for the defense fund.
As well as ramping up defense spending, Scholz also pledged to do more to protect energy supplies, including increasing gas-storage volume by 2 billion cubic meters, establishing a national coal and gas reserve and swiftly constructing two LNG terminals on the north coast.
Belarus Warns of WWIII
“Today we must stop the war,” Lukashenko stated. “I would not even call it ‘war’ right now: It is still a conflict. Another day or two and there will be a war. In three days – a meat grinder.”
Lukashenko claimed that Russia had nothing to gain from the war and the “only beneficiary” was the US with the goal of “putting Europe in its place and removing competitors.”
“Russia does not need this. They have ammunition, cartridges, machine guns, and enough people to solve the problems that Russia wants to solve,” he said.
He went on to claim that Belarusian and Russian people in Ukraine were being beaten and poisoned.
President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko
“They started beating them, poisoning them,” Lukashenko claimed. “They threaten us with terrorist acts.”
Lukashenko denied that Belarus was actively involved in the war except for “two or three rockets” which were fired on February 2. Belarusian rocket were detected on the border.
At that referendum, 65.2% of the people voted to change the constitution, revoking the country’s non-nuclear status. This opens the way for Russia to transfer nuclear weapons to Belarus for use against Ukraine.
“If you (the West) transfer nuclear weapons to Poland or Lithuania, to our borders, then I will turn to Putin to return the nuclear weapons that I gave away without any conditions,” Lukashenko said from a polling station.
The referendum also granted lifetime immunity from prosecution to the president once he left office.
It is important to note that Rabbi Yisrael Meir (HaKohen) Kagan, one of the most influential rabbis of the early 20th Century known as the Chofetz Chaim, taught that the pre-Messiah War of Gog and Magog will be fought in three stages. The Chofetz Chaim, born in 1838, lived through World War I but passed away in September 1933, six years before the outbreak of World War II.
While the world was still reeling from the aftereffects of what was dubbed the Great War, or the War to End All Wars, the Chofetz Chaim predicted that yet another war was imminent and would come. He predicted that 25 years after the end of the last war, another war will break out that will make the first seem like child’s play. The Chofetz Chaim’s prediction was, admittedly, slightly off. World War I ended in 1918, 21 years before the outbreak of World War II in 1939.
He went on to predict that 75 years after the second war, the final and greatest war will break out, making the second seem even smaller
