How World News relates to God's PLAN and Purpose with the World

It is time for realism in EU Russia ties says Frances Macron

HELSINKI (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron urged the European Union on Thursday to modernize its post-Cold War ties with Russia and pursue “strategic relations” with Turkey as well as other close neighbors, including in defense matters.

Macron on EU needs real relationship with Russia

Macron strongly advocates Europe’s ability to defend its strategic interests and assert its financial independence in response to the new global economic and defense situation brought on by Donald Trump’s presidency in the United States.

The French leader said Europe had long relied on U.S. protection and that while the NATO defense alliance remained important, the EU needed to bolster its own defense capacities.

“It is in our interest for the EU to have a strategic relationship with Turkey as well as with Russia that brings stability, that will in the long term and bring more strength and coherency,” he told a news conference on a visit to Helsinki.

Trump’s questioning of the United States’ future role in NATO, the mainstay of post-war European defense policy, if European members do not increase their financial contributions has worried some members about how they might deal with Russia.

Since coming to office in May last year, Macron has tried to improve relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Those efforts have been complicated by fallout from Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014, its role in a pro-Moscow rebellion in eastern Ukraine, its support for Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad in his country’s civil war and allegations of Russian meddling in foreign elections.

EU relations with Turkey have also been fraught, notably since it accused Ankara of staging a broad, collective and disproportionate crackdown after a failed 2016 coup attempt.

Bible Prophecy teaches that the European Union will become more and more influenced by Russia. Together they will become what the Bible terms as the King of the North and they will increasingly fail to support Britain and Amercia in their efforts to keep Russia in check.  This latest News Headline continues to highlight our Europe and America are drifting about.  This will accelerate following Brexit to the point that the EU will start to support Russia in geopolitical positions especially around the Middle East.

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.  Again it's interesting that they see the development of a EU Army as an important next step.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". 

The Land of MagogThey 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.
