BRUSSELS — NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday that Finland, Sweden have officially applied to join the world’s biggest military alliance, a move driven by security concerns over Russia’s war in Ukraine.

“I warmly welcome the requests by Finland and Sweden to join NATO. You are our closest partners,” Stoltenberg told reporters after a receiving their application letters from the two Nordic countries’ ambassadors.


An unexpected development for Putin who went to war with Ukraine to stop them from joining NATO.  So NATO will become an even bigger issue for Russia and Europe if they are to co-exist peacefully.  This is yet another sign that the NATO alliance is under political ttheat between Russia and Europe.  If President Emmanual Macron wants to bring Russia back to the negotiating table and begin dialogue on some form of a Security Pact with Russia, NATO will be issue for sure even more so now. 

The Bible has long revealed that Russia and an EU Army will enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East.  Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”.  Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.  So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe.  It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.

Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines words that show how the Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.

EU leaders have announced their intention to collectively re-arm and become autonomous in food, energy and military hardware in a Versailles declaration that described Russia’s war as “a tectonic shift in European history”.

At a summit in the former royal palace, the 27 heads of state and government said on Friday that the invasion of Ukraine had shown the urgent need for the EU to take responsibility for its own security and to rid itself of dependencies on others.

Speaking at a press conference in the palace’s Galerie des Batailles, in which France’s military achievements are celebrated in painting and sculpture, France’s Emmanuel Macron said the Versailles treaty of 1919 had divided Europe but that today leaders were uniting. He described Russia’s aggression as a “tragic turning point”.

“We can see how our food, our energy, our defence are all issues of sovereignty,” he said. “We want to be open to the world but we want to choose our partners and not depend on anybody.”


This again is just the sort of outcome we expect from the EU, but how and will they be able to shift their dependence on Russian Gas?  Bible Prophecy says they will be joined to Russia at the time of the end prior to the Return of Christ.  So we will see that the Ukraine war will move the EU into a (security pact) political Alignment with Russia in fulfillment of Bible Prophecy spoken some 3,000 years ago. Bible Prophecy reveals that the EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice and their own ARMY.  BUT ALONG WITH THIS development RUSSIA WILL BECOME INVOLVED WITH EUROPE AND IT’S EU ARMY.  WHY?

PARIS — Russia’s war on Ukraine has given new momentum to Emmanuel Macron’s push to make the EU more autonomous. But the Continent’s leaders still need to thrash out what that means in practice.

The French president, who welcomes fellow EU leaders to Versailles on Thursday for a summit overshadowed by the war, has long argued the EU needs to become less reliant on others — when it comes to everything from its own security to the supply of semiconductors.

For Macron’s government, Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and its repercussions have dramatically illustrated its point — showing the danger of a Europe unable to defend itself militarily, heavily reliant on Russian energy and too susceptible to external economic shocks.

The war should push the EU “to reduce our interdependence with the outside world, to create not an autocracy but a form of European independence,” Clément Beaune, France’s EU minister, said this week. “If this is the result of this crisis, it will be a success for Europe.”


Such an outcome form this Ukraine war is exactly what we have been waiting for, a move within the EU that moves them into a (security pact) political Alignment with Russia in fulfillment of Bible Prophecy spoken some 3,000 years ago. Bible Prophecy reveals that the EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice and their own ARMY.  BUT ALONG WITH THIS development RUSSIA WILL BECOME INVOLVED WITH EUROPE AND IT’S EU ARMY.  WHY?

PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron is optimistic he can secure a de-escalation over Ukraine when he travels to Moscow to meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Monday, but hinted that Western countries could have to make concessions to the Kremlin.

His bullish prognosis of a diplomatic compromise will trigger alarm bells among those who advocate a more hawkish line on Russia, particularly in Central and Eastern European capitals that fear Russian aggression. In an interview with the weekly Journal du Dimanche before his departure, Macron not only downplayed fears that Putin’s real strategic ambition was to occupy Ukraine but also extended an olive branch to Russia by saying he understood Moscow’s need to defend its security interests.

“The intensity of the dialogue we have had with Russia and this visit to Moscow are likely to prevent [a military operation] from happening. Then we will discuss the terms of de-escalation,” he told the JDD. “I have always been in a deep dialogue with President Putin and our responsibility is to build historic solutions.”

Putin has massed some 130,000 troops on Ukraine’s borders inside Russia and Belarus, sparking fears of an imminent invasion.

Macron argued, however, that conquest was not Putin’s ultimate goal. “The geopolitical objective of Russia today is clearly not Ukraine, but to clarify the rules of cohabitation with NATO and the EU,” he said.


This is yet another article where it seems Clear that Putin is all about enhancing his Relationship with the EU and NATO, but NATO will be replaced by a European Russian Confederacy as described in the Bible.  The Bible says that NATO will not survive, there must be a break in the past relationship between Europe and America for Europe to move into the sphere of a new relationship with Russia as the Bible Predicts and has done so for over 2500yrs in Bible Prophecy that is continuing to be played out in Current World Events.  So yes, yet another article that highlights the issue of the challenge that is facing NATO.  This article highlights yet again the fulfilment of Bible Prophecy spoken 2500 years ago.  The Bible reveals that The EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice.  Along with this development we expect to see Russia become more involved in Europe with links to a combined army, yes NATO will come to an end and Russia will end up militarily linked to this EU ARMY.  But Russia will never join the EU as Putin will never give up Russia’s sovereignty.

So WATCH this development as it is a sure sign that we are living in the last days before Christ’s Return.  

This EU SUPERSTATE will along with Russia enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East.  Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”.  Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.  So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe.  It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.

French President Emmanuel Macron urged Europe to invest in its own collective security framework in the face of Russian military moves on the bloc’s doorstep. He also called for a “frank” EU dialogue with Russia in his address to the European Parliament on Wednesday at the start of France’s six-month rotating presidency of the European Council. 

Macron said Europeans needed to build their own collective security pact and re-arm themselves after Russia prompted fears of a Ukraine invasion with a significant troop buildup on the border. 

“Europe needs to finally build its own collective security framework on our continent,” he told lawmakers in Strasbourg in eastern France.

“Security on our continent requires strategic rearmament,” he said, adding that “frank and demanding” talks with Russia were also required.

At the heart of the framework would be principles agreed with Russia 30 years ago, Macron said – including rejecting the use of force or coercion, giving states the “choice to accede to alliances or bodies that they wish to” and the “rejection of spheres of influence”.

“We, in Europe, need to stand up for these inherent rights,” Macron said.

The EU was not involved in direct talks between the US and Moscow last week, which were aimed at soothing tensions caused by Russia’s buildup of tens of thousands of troops on its border with Ukraine.

European defence is primarily assured by the US-led NATO military alliance, of which most EU states are members.

A proponent of the EU having its own “strategic autonomy” in defence, Macron added that the bloc must bring itself to a position to make sure “it can be respected”, including by making sure it is not too dependent on Russia for its energy supplies.


This could well be what we have been waiting for a move within the EU that moves them into a political Alignment with Russia in fulfillment of Bible Prophecy spoken some 3,000 years ago. Bible Prophecy reveals that the EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice and their own ARMY.  BUT ALONG WITH THIS development RUSSIA WILL BECOME INVOLVED WITH EUROPE AND IT’S EU ARMY.  WHY?

France and Germany bear a “special responsibility” to make the European Union a stronger world power as Paris assumes the bloc’s rotating presidency, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock told AFP on Friday.

Germany‘s coalition government has said it wants to increase the bloc’s “strategic sovereignty” as rivalries between world powers such as the United States, China and Russia adversely affect the EU.

French President Emmanuel Macron has long envisioned a stronger European Union, saying he aimed to make it “powerful in the world” during France‘s six-month presidency of the European Council beginning on January 1.

Germany will also host the next G7 summit in June as president of the group of wealthy democracies, giving the EU a chance to establish global diplomatic leadership in 2022.

The two countries, “as the closest of friends at the heart of Europe, bear a special responsibility for a united European Union, capable of acting and looking towards the future,” said Baerbock.

France’s presidency is “an important opportunity we want to seize together to strengthen Europe and make it fit to rise up to tomorrow’s challenges”, she added.

“Our French friends can count on our support from the first day to the last to prepare the ground for a sustainable economic recovery, in the fight against the climate crisis, in digitalisation and for a more sovereign Europe.”

 


Here we continue to see the German-Franco alliance that now leads the EU following BREXIT in fulfillment of Bible Prophecy. The EU will move closer together eventually becoming a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice.  Along with this development we expect to see Russia become more involved in Europe with links to a combined army.

Will a crisis occur over Ukraine?

BY MIHAILO S. ZEKIC • DECEMBER 28, 2021

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been making headlines for days now. He has supported his proxy in Belarus sending Middle Eastern migrants into the European Union. He’s been blackmailing Europe with skyrocketing energy prices. He’s threatening to restart war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. He’s even demanded a new iron curtain.

Putin is on a lot of people’s minds. But what is on Putin’s mind?

On December 17, it was wishing the pope a happy birthday.

Putin sent a telegram to congratulate Pope Francis for reaching 85 years of age. “It is hard to overestimate your personal contribution to the development of relations between the Russian Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches, and to the strengthening of the Russian-Vatican ties,” the telegram read.

Putin then made an interesting proposal of sorts. “I am certain that, with our joint efforts, we will be able to do a lot to protect the rights and interests of the Christians and to ensure the multi-confessional [or interfaith] dialogue.”

Francis, as leader of the Catholic Church, rules the largest Christian denomination. Russia has the largest population of Eastern Orthodox Christians, and by some counts the second-largest Christian denomination.

The Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church normally don’t get along. Since their split in 1054, they’ve found every excuse imaginable to squabble. This includes everything from how to properly cross oneself to which day to celebrate Christmas to Mary’s official title.

Yet the Russian Orthodox Church is friendlier to the pope than to other Orthodox churches.

The patriarch of Constantinople, the ceremonial head of the Orthodox Church, recognized the Orthodox Church of Ukraine as an independent church in 2018. Ukraine is traditionally under the Russian Orthodox Church’s jurisdiction. Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill then severed ties with the patriarch of Constantinople. The Russian government issued a statement that Putin was “extremely concerned” over Constantinople’s decision and promised Moscow would “defend the interest of [Ukrainian] Orthodox believers.” Eventually, the Russian Orthodox Church cut ties with the Church of Greece, the Church of Cyprus and the patriarch of Alexandria for recognizing the Ukrainian church.

Kirill has also accused Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople of trying to divide the Greek and Slavic Orthodox worlds. Kirill called Bartholomew’s actions “a crime” worthy of “divine retribution.” Kirill is apparently closer to the pope than he is to his fellow patriarch. Francis and Kirill met in 2016, the first time the leaders of the two religions had met since the 1054 split.

Francis and Kirill are preparing for another meeting. Earlier in the month, Francis said that “a meeting with Patriarch Kirill is not far on the horizon.” He said he would even go to Moscow to visit him “brother to brother.”

It’s important to realize that the Russian Orthodox Church is, in certain ways, an outgrowth of the Russian government. Kirill is rumored to be a former kgb agent (as was his predecessor, Alexei ii). Putin openly endorses the revival of Orthodox Christianity in Russia after decades of repression under the Soviets. Through its Orthodox Church, Russia—both under Putin and the czars of old—claimed leadership over the entire Orthodox world. So, for the pope, good relations with the Russian Orthodox Church means good relations with the Russian state.

Francis has already met with Putin three times. By comparison, he has met United States President Barack Obama twice and Queen Elizabeth ii only once. If Francis goes to Moscow to meet Kirill, he would likely take the time to visit Putin again as well.

Pope Francis has good relations with both Putin and Kirill. But how close is he to Ukraine?

Amid the recent Ukraine crisis, Francis spoke about his vision for peace in Ukraine on December 12. He told a crowd at Vatican City that “weapons are not the path to take.” He claimed to be praying for “dear Ukraine, for all its churches and religious communities and for all of its people, so that tensions there are resolved through a serious international dialogue and not with weapons.” He didn’t mention Russia by name.

Such a solution would delight Moscow as it would not return Ukraine to the pre-2014 status-quo (before Russia annexed Crimea and sponsored rebels in eastern Ukraine). Instead, Kiev would make concessions to the rebels and cement Putin’s influence in the region.


Putin seems intent on helping the ongoing development of these closer relations which highlights something Bible Students have been expecting and watching for some years. Bible Prophecy has revealed to us that the Catholic and Orthodox Churches will be United once more, before Christ’s Return. Further Prophecy tells us that both Europe and Russia will be united under one Religion being Catholicism both West and East. This development goes hand in hand with Britain’s Exit from the EU and Russia’s rise to the position of being a “guard’ unto the EU as per Ezekiel 38:8.

Checkmate Putin has the West cornered

Checkmate Putin Has The West Cornered

Checkmate Putin Has The West Cornered

Checkmate Putin has the West corneredPutin blames West for tensions amid fears of Russian invasion of Ukraine 02:47

(CNN) As 2022 nears, the West is trying to figure out Russian President Vladimir Putin’s next move on a complex geopolitical chessboard — and preparing an “aggressive package” of sanctions, should he decide to make another land grab in Ukraine.

Tensions are now at their highest since 2014, when Russia illegally annexed Crimea and dispatched “little green men” into Ukraine’s Donbas region. An all-out land invasion of Ukraine is now a real possibility.

But let’s face it. Putin could care less about the West’s threats, sitting as he does in the enviable position of being able to call the shots.

Europe is in the grip of an energy crisis with low reserves. And with Russia supplying some 40% of the European Union’s gas imports, the Kremlin has already shown its ability to checkmate the West’s harshest sanctions by limiting production and potentially triggering rolling blackouts across the continent.

Putin’s endgame is USSR 2.0, coming almost 30 years to the day the Soviet Union collapsed. His next moves come at a delicate geopolitical moment, with Western fears of a Ukraine invasion, the colonization of Belarus, a Europe-wide energy crisis, German Chancellor Angela Merkel stepping down as EU chief negotiator and concerns over US President Joe Biden’s discombobulated foreign policy.

If you’ve any doubt about Putin’s plans to roll back the clock, just read his 5,000-plus-word essay on why Russia, Belarus and Ukraine are doomed without closer integration with Mother Russia. Or his audacious demands Friday for a veto on who joins the NATO alliance and limits in stationing troops and weaponry in any country which joined the alliance after 1997.

Without firing a shot, Putin has managed to send the West into a collective panic — or at least into a position where they feel the need to appease the aging autocrat.

For the past four months, and particularly between September 7 and December 5 according to western intelligence sources quoted by CNN, Putin has been amassing tens of thousands of troops and heavy weaponry as close as 30 miles to Ukraine’s borders. U.S. intelligence reports suggest a build-up of up to 175,000 troops, enough to stage a swift and immediate incursion.

Another land grab would add to the territory seized in 2014 when Russia illegally annexed Crimea and sent Russian-backed combatants into the heavily industrialized eastern Donbas region of Ukraine.

Russia continues to amass new troops near Ukraine’s border despite Biden urging Putin to de-escalate tensions

With so much muscle, Putin could be gunning for a land bridge between Russia proper and Crimea — a move which could be designed in part to free-up water resources blocked by Ukraine in the North Crimean Canal, which once accounted for up to 85% of the peninsula’s water needs.

The Kremlin’s actions have not been limited to Ukraine. Russia has been engaged in hybrid warfare with the West, including cyberhacking one of the US’s largest pipelines, spreading disinformation about coronavirus vaccines, interfering in US elections, and neutralizing opponents on foreign soil.

Most recently, Putin opened up another front with the West by establishing a military alliance with the man often dubbed “Europe’s last dictator,” Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko. Emboldened by the Kremlin’s backing, Lukashenko has acted with impunity by jailing opponents, forcing down a Ryanair jet with a political opponent onboard and sending migrants toward its border with EU neighbors.

Yet, as recently as Thursday, European leaders were responding to Putin’s bullying tactics and intimidation by trying to nudge him toward the bargaining table. This could be a sign that the bloc fears that even if they sign off on further harsh sanctions on Russia should an invasion take place, Putin could respond by holding back gas production.


What we see here is a continuation of the coercion Putin is playing out on Europe to get them to see Russia as an ally and not a threat as he pushes Europe to hold back NATO expansion.  Bible Prophecy reveals that the EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice and their own ARMY.  BUT ALONG WITH THIS development RUSSIA WILL BECOME INVOLVED WITH EUROPE AND IT’S EU ARMY.  WHY? BECAUSE BIBLE PROPHECY SAYS THAT RUSSIA WILL BECOME A “GUARD” UNTO EUROPE (Ezekiel 38:7).  So how will this unfold, well America and its future political moves with Europe will have a lot to do with how this happens.  We would expect America’s relationship with Europe to weaken and Russia’s to become increasingly stronger.

So WATCH this development as it is a sure sign that we are living in the last days before Christ’s Return.

This EU SUPERSTATE will along with Russia enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East.  Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”.  Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.  So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe.  It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.

ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE, Dec 6 (Reuters) – Pope Francis said on Monday he was willing to go to Moscow for to meet Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill “brother to brother” in what would be the first trip by a pope to Russia.

The pair’s meeting in Cuba in 2016 was the first by a pope and a leader of the Russian Orthodox Church since the great schism that split Christianity into Eastern and Western branches in 1054.

Both sides have declared a willingness to work towards unity but they are still far apart theologically and over what role the pope would play in an eventually reunited Church.

“We are brothers and we talk straight to each other. We do not dance the minuet,” Francis told reporters aboard his plane returningPope says willing to go to Moscow to meet Orthodox Patriarch from a trip to Cyprus and Greece.

“We have to move forward, walking and working towards unity.”

He said he was willing to go Moscow and that a top Russian Orthodox official was expected in Rome next week to decide the time and location of the meeting.

Francis said working out the protocols would be less important than meeting “brother to brother” with Kirill.

The Pope normally travels to countries with a joint invitation from its religious authorities as well as one from the government, meaning that Francis would most likely need an invitation from President Vladimir Putin to visit Russia.

The Russian Orthodox Church, the largest in Christian Orthodoxy, with about 100 million members, is closely aligned with the Kremlin.


This ongoing developing of closer relations is very interesting and highlights something Bible Students have been expecting and watching for some years. Bible Prophecy has revealed to us that the Catholic and Orthodox Churches will be United once more, before Christ’s Return. Further Prophecy tells us that both Europe and Russia will be united under one Religion being Catholicism both West and East.

Biden and Putin to hold call amid Ukraine invasion fears

US President Joe Biden and Russia’s Vladimir Putin will speak via video call on Tuesday, the White House says, amid mounting tensions over Ukraine.

It comes after Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the US had evidence that Russia had made plans for a “large scale” attack on Ukraine.

But he added it was unclear if Mr Putin had made a final decision to invade.

Russia has denied any such intention, and accused Ukraine of executing its own troop build-up.

In a statement released on Saturday evening, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that Mr Biden will “underscore US concerns with Russian military activities on the border with Ukraine and reaffirm the United States’ support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine” during his call with the Russian president.

Ukraine says Russia has deployed armoured vehicles, electronic warfare systems and 94,000 troops along their shared border.

It is the largest massing of Russian forces on its borders since it annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.

Citing intelligence reports, Ukraine’s Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov said Moscow could be planning a military offensive at the end of January.

The Russian troop movement has strained already tense relations between Russia and the US.

On Friday, Mr Biden warned he would make it “very, very difficult” for Mr Putin to “go ahead and do what people are worried he may do”.

The US and its European allies have discussed imposing sanctions on Russia if it takes aggressive action.

While Ukraine is not a Nato member, it has close ties with the bloc and has received Western weapons including US Javelin anti-tank missiles.

Russian officials have denied any plans for an invasion, and say the border troops are there for military exercises.

Moscow has accused Nato of engaging in provocative behaviour by holding drills in the Black Sea, off Crimea. Russia’s foreign ministry also said Ukraine has itself sent 125,000 troops to their shared border. Kyiv declined to comment on the claim.


This is yet another article where the future of NATO is clearly seen to be under threat and highlights the threat of war if NATO keeps expanding its border member countries facing Russia.  The Bible says that NATO will not survive, there must be a break down in the past relationship between Europe and America for Europe to move into the sphere of a new relationship with Russia as the Bible Predicts and has done so for over 2500yrs in Bible Prophecy that is continuing to be played out in Current World Events.  So yes, yet another article that highlights the issue of the challenge that is facing NATO.  This article highlights yet again the fulfilment of Bible Prophecy spoken 2500 years ago.  The Bible reveals that The EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice.  Along with this development we expect to see Russia become more involved in Europe with links to a combined army, yes NATO will come to an end and Russia will end up militarily linked to this EU ARMY.  But Russia will never join the EU as Putin will never give up Russia’s sovereignty.

So WATCH this development as it is a sure sign that we are living in the last days before Christ’s Return.  

This EU SUPERSTATE will along with Russia enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East.  Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”.  Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.  So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe.  It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.

Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines words that show how the Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres

UN chief says climate change goal on ‘life support’

COP26: UN chief says climate change goal on ‘life support’

UN Secretary General Antonio GuterresBy Seth Borenstein and Frank Jordans 01:50, Nov 12 2021

COP26: Five takeaways as negotiators review draft climate deal

A draft climate deal gets mixed reviews while countries and companies make pledges to green the transport sector.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius is “on life support” as UN climate talks enter their final days, but he added that “until the last moment, hope should be maintained”.

In an exclusive interview Thursday (UK time) with The Associated Press, Guterres said the COP26 negotiations in Glasgow, Scotland, set to end Friday, will “very probably” not yield the carbon-cutting pledges he has said are needed to keep the planet from warming beyond the 1.5-degree threshold.

So far, the talks have not come close to achieving any of the UN’s three announced priorities for the annual conference, called COP26. One is cutting carbon emissions by about half by 2030 to reach the goal Guterres alluded to.

The other two are getting rich countries to fulfil a 12-year-old pledge of providing US$100 billion a year in financial climate aid to poor nations and ensuring that half of that amount goes to helping developing nations adapt to the worst effects of climate change.

China, U.S. will work together to meet COP26 goals

As the COP26 summit wraps up, the U.S. and China announced that they will work together to reduce emissions over the next 10 years.

Guterres said the Glasgow talks “are in a crucial moment” and need to accomplish more than securing a weak deal that participating nations agree to support.

“The worst thing would be to reach an agreement at all costs by a minimum common denominator that would not respond to the huge challenges we face,” Guterres said.

That’s because the overarching goal of limiting warming since pre-industrial times to 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century “is still on reach but on life support”, Guterres said. The world has already warmed 1.1 degrees Celsius, leaving far less than a degree before the threshold is hit.


Just when we thought there might be an upside to Convid-19, we are told that there is only more bad NEWS for the World.  This world faces significant problems that are all life threatening to our current way of life.  But the Bible has long warned us of this situation we find ourselves in as it said that in the “last days” ie. before Christ’s coming in Luke 21:26 Christ said that: 

26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

But we do not subscribe to a doomsday view of the world, as God will allow. God has said that he will “destroy those who would destroy the earth” Rev 11:15-18. However what is very significant here is that the increase in man made problems are a sign of the nearness of Christ’s Return to this Earth. World problems are a clear sign of the nearness of Chirst’s return to this Earth to Establish God’s Kingdom as Promised as we read in Luke 21:27 Christ went on to say this:

“And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

So rather than worry about these things True Bible Students REJOICE to see them knowing the Christ’s RETURN is drawing NEAR!

Turkey interested in Russian fighter jets and submarines, despite NATO ties

By Joel Gehrke – Published: Fri, October 1, 2021, 3:07 AM·4 min read

turkey-interested-in-russian-fighter-jets-and-submarines-despite-natoTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is considering major acquisitions of defense and nuclear technology from Russia, raising the specter of an unprecedented divorce within the NATO alliance.

“The extent of the bilateral cooperation he is referring to would amount to a strategic cooperation between — not only between two countries, but almost like between two allies,” former Turkish opposition lawmaker Aykan Erdemir, a senior fellow at Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the Washington Examiner.

Erdogan met with Russian President Vladimir Putin for a meeting billed as a dialogue about the Syria crisis following violations of a ceasefire agreement the two powers had agreed to maintain. Yet Erdogan, whose government was expelled from the U.S. F-35 stealth fighter program after alarming other NATO allies with his purchase of Russia’s most advanced anti-aircraft missile defense system, emerged from the dialogue with a stated interest in expanding the partnership to Turkey’s air force and navy.

“We had the opportunity to discuss comprehensively what steps to take in the production of plane engines, what steps to take regarding fighter jets,” Erdogan told reporters on his plane, according to Turkish media. “Another issue is that we can take many steps together in shipbuilding. We will again take joint steps with Russia, including submarines.”

Those projects would put Erdogan on another collision course with a U.S. law designed to drive business away from Russia’s defense industry, passed in response to Russia’s 2016 election interference, by imposing sanctions on countries that make a “significant transaction” with Russian defense companies. Former President Donald Trump’s administration imposed these sanctions in December, but Erdogan has maintained a defiant public stance.

“I’m going to possibly acquire defense systems from another country, and nobody can get involved in this,” Erdogan said in a televised CBS interview. “In the future, nobody will be able to interfere in terms of what kind of defense systems we acquire, from which country, at what level. Nobody can interfere with that.”


Another SIGN of just how close we are to Christ’s Return.  Bible Prophecy has long shown that Turkey will never be a member of the EU and will withdraw from NATO as the Bible reveals that Turkey will have a close relationship with Russia in the lead up to mans final conflict and the return of Christ.  So keep watching this development with Turkey as she moves closer in her ties to Russia. Based on Bible Prophecy Turkey will be with Russia and Europe when they invade the Middle East as described in Ezekiel 38.   We fully expect to see Russia become more closely linked to Europe militarily whereby Russia will become a “guard” unto the European Nations according to Ezekiel 38:7. 

Also Ezekiel 38:6 says that “Gomer (France), and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (Turkey) of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.”

So somehow Turkey will be involved with Russia and it’s Army and the move into the Middle East.

Bible Prophecy about the alignment of Nations in the Latter Days

German Election Results 2021

Germany Elections Centre Left Claim Victory

Germany Elections Centre Left Claim Victory

BBC News, Berlin By Paul Kirby

German federal election 2021

Olaf Scholz of Germany’s Social Democratic Party: “Many voters… wanted a change in government”

German Election Results 2021

Germany’s centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) have claimed victory in the federal election, telling the party of outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel it should no longer be in power.

SPD leader Olaf Scholz said he had a clear mandate to form a government, while his conservative rival Armin Laschet remains determined to fight on.

The two parties have governed together for years.

But Mr Scholz says it is time for a new coalition with the Greens and liberals.

Preliminary results gave his party a narrow election win over the conservatives who suffered their worst-ever performance.

Despite this, Mr Laschet said his party had given him its backing to enter talks with coalition partners, pushing Germany towards a potentially protracted power struggle.

The Greens and pro-business Free Democratic Party (FDP) attracted the most support from the under-30s, in an election dominated by climate change and by differing proposals on how to tackle it. The Greens made history with almost 15% of the vote, even though it was well short of their ambitions.

It was the tightest race in years, bringing an end to the post-war domination of the two big parties – Mr Scholz’s SPD and his rival’s conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU).

German election How Die Linke want to get rid of NATO

DIE LINKE Germany’s socialist left party has called for NATO to be scrapped – but what would this mean?

By PIP MURRISON  11:30, Sun, Sep 26, 2021 | UPDATED: 16:04, Mon, Sep 27, 2021

German election could lead to “collision” in coalition government

Germans take to the polls today to vote in their new Government. Popularity for Die Linke has been growing, many now think the far-left group could even form the next coalition Government. Why do they want to scrap NATO and what could this mean for the west’s security?

Die Linke has publicly called for the NATO alliance to be scrapped.

Its election campaign has centred around this and on reforming social care.

The party may have no realistic chance of winning the elations, but many think they could be asked to form a left-wing coalition.

If they are asked to help form the next government with the SPD, they will have serious influence over Germany’s defence policies.


This may yet be another blow to the NATO alliance.   Germany and France could well be the 2 members of the EU who lead the EU away from NATO.

The Bible has long revealed that Russia and an EU Army will enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East.  Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”.  Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.  So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe.  It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.

France Says Crisis Over AUKUS To Affect NATO ‘Ties’; Germany Proposes New EU Task Force

Germany and France voice Nato Crack

France will discuss the new NATO strategic concept bearing in mind the crisis in its relations with the United States, which formed a new strategic partnership with the UK and Australia behind its back, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Saturday.

On Friday, Paris for the first time in history recalled its ambassadors from Washington and Canberra after finding out that Australia abandoned a $66 billion submarine contract with France to obtain nuclear-powered submarines instead within the trilateral partnership with the UK and the US (AUKUS).

“At the request of the President of the Republic, NATO initiated a discussion of its concept. The next NATO summit in Madrid will work on a new strategic concept. Obviously, what has happened will be of relevance to its definition,” Le Drian told France 2 channel.

The French foreign minister has earlier described Australia’s keeping France in the dark about its decision to break the submarine deal as a “breach of trust” and a “stab in the back.” Under the contract, signed in 2016, France was supposed to supply Australia with 12 diesel-powered combat submarines of Barracuda class.

EU Army News Kramp-Karrenbauer urges EU to oppose NATO and build military forcesKramp-Karrenbauer Globalism

September 19, 2021

After the Taliban victory last month, several high-ranking European politicians said the EU needed an army of its own. France is now furious with AUKUS, the new military alliance between the US, UK and Australia.

Its creation prompted Australia to cut a lucrative submarine deal with a French company.

In response, Paris withdrew its ambassadors from the United States and Australia, claiming that the country’s foreign minister had been “stabbed in the back”.

German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said the Afghanistan defeat showed the need for a European “quick reaction force”.

She told the Frankfurter Olgemen Zeitung newspaper: “The question is, what conclusions can I draw from this?

The German defense minister called for a European “quick attack force”.


Another sign that the NATO alliance is under threat, this one sparking from a Australian, British, American alliance to further protect the Pacific from China’s expansionist agenda. 

The Bible has long revealed that Russia and an EU Army will enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East.  Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”.  Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.  So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe.  It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.

I’ll make Britain great again

‘I’ll make Britain great again’, PM Johnson says, echoing Trump

Guy FaulconbridgeKylie MacLellan

LONDON (Reuters) – Boris Johnson promised on Thursday that Brexit would make Britain the greatest place on earth, echoing the patriotic rhetoric of U.S. President Donald Trump in his first speech to parliament as prime minister.

Johnson, who was hailed by the U.S. president as Britain’s Trump, has promised to strike a new divorce deal with the European Union and to energize the world’s fifth-largest economy after what he casts as the gloom of Theresa May’s premiership.

On entering Downing Street on Wednesday, Johnson set up a showdown with the EU by vowing to negotiate a new deal and threatening that, if the bloc refused, he would take Britain out on Oct. 31 without a deal to limit economic dislocation.

“Our mission is to deliver Brexit on the 31st of October for the purpose of uniting and re-energizing our great United Kingdom and making this country the greatest place on earth,” Johnson proclaimed.

He said Britain could be the most prosperous economy in Europe by 2050, a feat that would mean drawing far ahead of France and then overtaking Germany.

Johnson promised that British children and grandchildren “will be living longer, happier, healthier, wealthier lives”.


In the greatest change to UK politics ever, we are now set on the right path again for Britain to Leave the EU as determined by Bible Prophecy over 2,500 years ago.

What’s more, Bible Students fully expect to see the UK and the USA come close together with the UK leading the Commonwealth Nations as the KING OF THE SOUTH against the EU and RUSSIA. We will see this develop following BREXIT. Bible Prophecy is very clear on the fact that Britain will be a major global politically leader at the time with Russia and the EU invade the Middle East.  Britain will assume this role following BREXIT along with the Commonwealth Countries (and America who is also of British origin) make up the King of the South (along with Israel, Eqypt and the Gulf Arab Nations) at the time of the end that will move to stop Russia and Europe from invading the Middle East.

God has declared the End from the Beginning and the Bible (God’s Word) revealed that Britain would not be part of the EU when Christ Returns to Earth, and World Events have conspired to ensure that has now happened. But we need to keep watching this development as there is much to see yet as Britain takes her place once more on the World Political Stage.

See this Article to learn more about Britian and the Commonwealth Block in Bible Prophecy.

So yet again we see the hand of God at work in the nations to ensure that His purpose unfolds on the earth.  Britain has now voted to leave the EU and will rebuild her ties with the Commonwealth Block.  Together they will challenge the rise of Russia and the EU and their influence in the Middle East.
