Merkel ‘highly qualified’ for top EU job, says Juncker

Angela Merkel would be "highly qualified" for a senior EU position once she steps down as chancellor, Jean-Claude Juncker said, referring to the German leader as "a lovable work of art."

In an interview with the German Funke Media Group, the European Commission president, whose own term of office comes to an end in the fall, said he "cannot imagine" that Merkel would "disappear without trace."

"She is not only a respected person but also a lovable work of art," Juncker said.

But the Commission president was less complimentary about French President Emmanuel Macron over his refusal to back the Spitzenkandidat (or "lead candidate") system for choosing the next Commission president. Juncker said he was a "great supporter" of the system, which was used for the first time during his own appointment.

"One reason for the crisis of political credibility is precisely the fact that what is promised before the election is not what is done after," he said.

"The Liberals, to whom Emmanuel Macron belongs, have failed to put up a lead candidate and have therefore nominated nine candidates," said Juncker. "I can already tell you one thing: There will not be nine Liberal Commission presidents."

Juncker's European People 's Party looks set to win the most seats in the European Parliament, putting its Spitzenkandidat, Manfred Weber, in pole position to be Juncker's successor.

On Brexit, Juncker said that there remained the risk that the U.K. would leave the bloc without a deal, despite the decision by EU leaders last week to extend the Article 50 deadline until October 31.

What we know from Bible Prophecy is that the EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND A PRESIDENT (could this be Angela Merkel) 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". 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.
