Donald Trump President -End of Era for US-EU Relations

Donald Trump President and Bible Prophecy
Add caption


Donald Trump has the same view of the European Union as most Americans and that is that the EU is not relevant and is going to fall apart. This is in large part influenced by the media, which broadcast attention getting headlines that the EU is going to collapse.

All previous US administrations have embraced the EU as helping to prevent war on their continent's soil and also encourage the EU taking their part in the burden that has rested on the US’s shoulders for securing worldwide democracy and peace. US leaders have each repeated the same rhetoric when it has come to the EU.  They all stood united on their position from president to president despite being Republican or Democrat. That is until Donald Trump.

 Donald Trump aligned himself with the EU’s far right MEP Nigel Farage who headed the UKIP party and is the man responsible for BREXIT. Trump’s team also reached out to the right wing National Front in France, both of which advocate for the nation state and are anti-EU. They want to end the EU making decisions and writing the rules for their respective nations.   They also highlight the EU’s undemocratic structure.   They are anti globalist.  Nigel Farage views the EU as a failed project and has predicted on several occasions the coming failure of the euro.

According to Euractiv, Donald Trump’s staff phoned EU officials and actually asked them which countries were going to leave next.  This negative tone was further reinforced by Donald Trump’s staff sending a message to US ambassador to the EU; Anthony Gardner that he and other appointees must leave by inauguration day, which was an unprecedented move on the part of the new administration as past protocol usually allows them to stay on for a transition period.  European Federalism and the accompanying European Movement- European Project have largely been ignored by the media and US administrations, but since embracing Nigel Farage, Trump took notice.

After Donald Trump’s interview with the London Times his anti EU stance was further confirmed and the media went wild with the news.  Trump let it be known he would help BREXIT and negotiate a trade deal with the UK  within 90 days. Afterwards Nigel Farage literally became drunk on Trump, which was evidenced during his radio show titled, "EU Elites Gutted by Trump's Trade Deal Offer.”

In Nigel Farage’s December 14 speech to the EU Parliament he compared 2016’s events to the three wise men bearing their gifts.  He called the gifts: the Brexit Deliverance, the Trump Triumph and the Italian Rebellion  and stated, “its just that in this case the gifts were all the same, democracy and the rebirth of the nation state. He concluded, “A democratic revolution has begun.”

European Union officials on the other hand view Trump’s statements that NATO is obsolete and that countries that do not need to pay their share, along with his friendly overtures to Vladimir Putin as the end of NATO and American military support. This supported their resolve to go forward with their own army. In the face of the EU’s plans for its own army and military Nigel Farage stated, “The UK will act as the bridge between the US and the nation states of Europe to make sure NATO is secure. ” Farage is obviously wanting the US and the UK to bring the world geopolitically to the same place in time that existed as at the end of the Cold War in the Reagan, Thatcher era.

Within the interview Trump displayed his ignorance of EU affairs when asked several questions about the EU. Such as what number would be the number to phone to speak to the EU and he answered Merkels “is by far one of the most important leaders”, when in fact it would be EU Commission President Juncker, He also stated that the EU began in part to beat the US in trade, which was not the reason it formed, it formed to prevent another world war. Its economic union was a path to lend to its own strength to make Europe relevant on the world stage.  Trump relayed a business experience in Ireland and his deal could not go forward because it was delayed by EU law, which he feels is a problem for the nation state.

EU, US relations and TTIP’s future are uncertain yet one fact is sure, EU leaders are shaken by Donald Trump and are reacting to the coming geopolitical shift his presidency will usher in with a call for greater unification.   MEP and ALDE leader Guy Verhofstadt stated to the EU Parliament on January 18, 2017, “An American president openly saying that other countries will break away from the European union, I have never seen it, never heard it, That is a wakeup call for us to reform the European union the fastest as possible.”

Verhofstadt stated on his Facebook Page:

"Trump is fueling EU disintegration, attempting to undermine Merkel and plans to nominate an ambassador who has only one quality: being a Brexit enthusiast. Europe must wake up. US support has been important for the EU integration for the past 60 years. But we're on our own from here on. We must urgently reform the EU, deliver on key issues and become relevant for citizens. This is not just about the EU: it is about our freedoms, our way of life."

Verhofstadt repeated on Twitter:

"I have never seen a US president saying the EU will fall apart. This is the moment for unity, reform, and integration."

In another tweet:

"The turning point is here: Trump is openly against the EU and saying other countries will break away."

Currently the EU and US have the largest bilateral trade relationship and enjoy the most integrated economic relationship in the world.  According to the Delegation of the European Union to the United States, "Together accounting for nearly 30 percent of global merchandise trade, about 40 percent of world trade in services, and well over half of foreign direct investment. In 2012, 45 of 50 U.S. States exported more to Europe than to China – by a wide margin in many cases." The EU-US economic relationship would further be enhanced by TTIP the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership agreement would bolster the US economy by 0.4% of GDP and the EU economy by 0.5% of GDP.  TTIP, now hangs in the balance.   EU- US trade might be getting an overhaul under Donald Trump.

The question is what happens to the EU without the US support? It has taken a hit with BREXIT and now Donald Trump and the uncertainty of a Trump presidency.

The EU is a world power that has not punched up to its weight. It is like a young giant that is still growing.   The European Union does not rely on the United States. The EU is the largest economy in the world.  It is also the world’s largest trading block.   It is the world’s largest trader of manufactured goods and services.  The EU ranks first in both inbound and outbound international investments.  In addition, the EU is the top trading partner for 80 countries, while the US is the top trading partner for only 20 countries.

The US since the 2008 financial crisis has generated uncertainty, the dollar’s erosion as the world’s reserve currency, its enormous deficit, and its experimental QE programs lent to the EU’s unsureness regarding the US and in response the EU embarked on greater investment in China.
China is the EU's biggest source of imports by far, and has also become one of the EU's fastest growing export markets. Trade in services are weak as are investment flows between both continents and they are looking to increase these areas and resolve the various issues. At the 16th EU-China Summit held in November 2013 both sides announced the launch of negotiations of a comprehensive EU-China Investment Agreement. 

While the EU would prefer the conclusion of TTIP and the trade relations with the US, and the agreement once concluded would help the economies of both sides, without the US agreement the EU it is hedged via its agreements with other nations and most recently CETA, the comprehensive trade pact it just signed with Canada.


In end time Bible Prophecy we know that the EU is going to become the greatest most powerful world empire to have ever existed and it is going to be an economic powerhouse.  Despite BREXIT and Donald Trump in Bible Prophecy the EU is still going to move forward despite taking these bumps. With Donald Trump as president there is a new sheriff in town and the era of EU, US relations has come to an end, but with the new president will come a geopolitical shift and the EU will continue to move forward even to the surprise of some EU officials.

2016 in Bible Prophecy Year in Review



2016 in end time Bible Prophecy year in review
2016 started with a good deal of troubles from threats from North Korea, terror threats, Saudi executions, and dire predictions in the stock market from the Financial Times.

It was the year North Korea launched 5 nuclear bomb tests in defiance of the world, was accused of “maniacal recklessness” and stated it aim to have a bomb that could reach US shores. 
During 2016 the EU’s refugee and migrant crisis peaked . The shocking 1000 men rape occurred in Cologne January. And it was the year that terror hit Brussels the capital of Europe.
On a happy note Iran freed Pastor Saeed Abedini.

It was also the year of the BREXIT vote one of the biggest events of end time Bible Prophecy. The EU would not retreat after BREXIT, but continued its move forward and with even more renewed fervor.  In retaliation, the opt outs of EU legislation that the UK had been allowed were proposed to be done away with after BREXIT and the EU appointed its most staunch Europhile as a BREXIT negotiator.   In Bible Prophecy the BREXIT can possibly be the fulfillment of Daniel 7:24, which we will not know until the details plays out in 2017.

 As the EU faced many crisis’s in 2016, it called for an EU army.  EU Commission President Juncker stated that the EU being a soft power was not enough as he proposed a military headquarters and at his state of the union let it be known an EU wide defense was on the agenda. The EU approved its first ever military budget in October.

Jerry Falwell Jr. shocked evangelicals when he endorsed Donald Trump for president and thus continued a campaign between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton that was like no other in US history with violence erupting at Trump rallies and anti-trump protests. Upon the election of Donald Trump, “rape Melania” trended on twitter, and riots and protests continued for days evidencing the anger and violence of the times. Even more so the election of Donald Trump was one of the biggest events for end time Bible because his presidency would cause a geopolitical seismic shift and help thrust the EU forward into a political union.  

After Trump’s election he teamed with former UKIP leader and the man responsible for BREXIT Nigel Farage and offered to make him the UK ambassador to the US.  The Trump presidency became another catalyst for the EU to call for the urgency of its own defense and to build into a political empire. 

In 2016 EU parliament president Martin Shultz stepped down to try to run in the German elections being held sometime in September 2017 to run against Angela Merkel. The possibility of his becoming chancellor of Germany with his political EU mission would be big news for end time Bible Prophecy if he comes to head the helm of the EU’s largest member country.  He will no doubt take a major role in helping the EU forward on its political path and Schulz is a good candidate for one of the ten kings of Revelation and Daniel.

2016 was also the year the EU signed a historic trade deal with Canada, which reduces its reliance on the US as an expert market and picks away at another piece of the US’s leading position in the world.

2016 was also the year of a watch on the Italian banks, especially the world’s oldest bank the Monte Dei Paschi and Deutche bank.

In Israel 2016 is the year of the Israeli fires and the Arab world celebrating on social media. Iran test fires a missile named “Israel must be wiped off the face of the earth.”
It was also the year that the UN voted and gave preliminary approval to a resolution that denies Jewish ties to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.

On the other hand it became the year that Donald Trump pledged to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

2016 is also the year that Turkey and Russia healed their rift and Putin and Erdogan met for a new beginning in their relations, which lines with the Ezekiel 38 war predictions and further in line with that forecast. Russia and Turkey hooked up with Iran and sent help to aid in Israel’s fires. We also saw Turkey removed further from the EU –it is seeking EU membership-- The Turkish coup followed by the Crackdown by Erdogan, led to a freeze on EU Turkey membership and the threat of Erdogan to flood refuges into the EU.

And Also in line with Ezekiel 38, Russia and Armenia formed a military alliance.
In line with further chaos, in 2016 in the China sea conflict, Beijing told its citizens to prepare for possible war on the South China Sea with Vietnam moving its rocket launchers in the area. South Korea also fired on Chinese ships.

As for the escalation in violence and signs of the times:
Greece called on NATO to help halt refugee flow as North Sweden police warn women to stay indoors at night.  ISIS continued its atrocities and in one story it was reported they used a tool called the biter for women who disobeyed their dress code. ISIS also directly threatened Israel and ordered its franchises to kill Christians.  

The Orlando shooting of 2016 was declared the deadliest mass shooting in US history. The Milwaukee riots, turned the streets into a war zone. In the US an FBI report revealed that murders went up 10.8% since 1971.Violence against women who ignore catcallers is on the rise. In one story in India, a married woman was groped and when she refused the advances of the man, he beat her with a large stick in front of a group of onlookers as she struggled to get away.  2016 also became a year where violence against members of the press increased and we saw varying forms of censorship in several countries. 

On the Sexually Immoral front
A Huge Norwegian pedophile ring was busted, An 11 year old male became Britain’s youngest male rapist, and Sweden charged 5 in the gang rape of a boy.  It seemed there were more and more accounts of coaches and clergy who were caught committing countless acts of sexual abuse of young boys and girls.

On the social front
A State of Emergency was called for in Canada for a community facing a suicide epidemic, 2016 became the year of opioid overdose deaths becoming unprecedented and a no. 1 cause of death and Obesity’s Epidemic continued to rise.

On the incidents in nature
Bald eagles popping up dead in Maryland, sea levels are rising at the fastest rate in 3,000 years, A Massive record fish kill was recorded in Florida, The Frightening decline of British butterflies, A Freak lightening strike that killed over 300 reindeer, California wildfires, Bee attacks are becoming more frequent, and a drought struck many states in the US. The California drought caused trees to die by millions. In Siberia the ground bounced like a trampoline, and a gigantic sinkhole swallowed an intersection in a Japanese city. Another major sign is that Artic sea ice vanishing far faster than anyone thought possible. To top things off on November 14 was a super moon.

2016 Earthquakes
Italy was rocked by strongest quake in 36 years. The Italy earthquake destroyed half of an entire town
A 6.5 quake in California, a 7.8 in Solomon Islands and a large quake in Papua New Guinea.

2016 became the year of Extreme Heat and Cold
A Heat dome struck the US and a polar vortex struck in the winter, In the Mid-east,  it was the hottest year on record, April broke temperature records and the UK prepared for the coldest winter for five years because of a Polar Vortex there. 2016 became the hottest year on record breaking the record set in 2015, which was the hottest year on record then so we see again our spike upward mirroring the birth pangs chart that Jesus predicted.

Severe Storms
Japan braced for third typhoon in a week. China was battered by Nida its most powerful typhoon in 30 years, In October Florida had a storm that called for mass evacuations and London flooded after torrential rains in the fall.

Plagues
Locusts plagued southern Russia, Zika virus spread and super lice emerging in every state in the US, Leprosy sprang up in the US and in 2016 polio reared its ugly head.

Technology
There was the development of a Technology-face recognition app,
Crispr gene-editing was tested in a person for the first time, and scientists were able to create a motherless baby.


2016 was an eventful year for end time Bible Prophecy and tune in for the video that will follow this one, which is my 2017 forecast. In the mean time for more on end time Bible Prophecy subscribe to my channel prophecy talk today.




2017 end time bible prophecy forecast


2017 forecast
In 2017 we are going to see BREXIT take its final shape and see if it in fact fulfills Daniel 7:24’s prediction.

Within the EU, they will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome at the end of March and this will launch an intergovernmental conference that will begin another treaty change and we are going to want to keep an eye on these developments, I will forecast that within the next EU treaty we will see the beginnings of the 10 nation division that is described in the book of Daniel and the Revelation and see the EU become a nearly full-fledged political union and it will be further on its way to becoming the final world empire described in end time Bible Prophecy.

Former EU Parliament president Martin Shultz will run in the elections in Germany and I am favoring his winning because of the impact on Bible Prophecy but I could be wrong.

In 2017, we will get the feel of a Donald Trump presidency and begin to see what policies will be his priorities, and what changes he is going to make and its impact on end time Bible Prophecy so you will want to stay tuned.  I can tell you that no matter what Donald Trump does, the US is going to continue to decline as we see the EU rise to power, this will not be so obvious in 2017 and US power will be whittled away silently as the EU grows behind the scenes so to speak, meaning decisions that are being made that are not being paid attention to in the media will in a few years’ time feel its impact.

In April and May will be the elections in France and I predict based on end time Bible Prophecy we will not see the right wing Le Pen win in France.

Expect more of the same in the weather patterns and natural disasters and more upsetting signs in nature. This might also be the year for a 9.5 magnitude earthquake.

We will still see the disturbing perilous times grow more perilous with nation rising against nation, violence, riots, commotions, sexual perversion and immorality becoming the new normal.   The society will become more difficult to live and work in as sin in society continues to mount as Jesus predicted.

Micah 7 predictions for End Time Bible Prophecy

Micah 7 predictions for end time bible prophecy


Within the Old Testament are many predictions of end time Bible prophecies that line with either what Jesus predicted or what is foretold in the Revelation.  Often these provide further details helping to paint a more complete picture of what will occur. Micah 7 provides one of them. It adds description of the sin of the last days and highlights the deception that will take place of those who turn in their family members who do not take the Mark of the Beast. 

Micah 7 reads:

Woe is me!
For I am like those who gather summer fruits,
Like those who glean vintage grapes;
There is no cluster to eat
Of the first-ripe fruit which my soul desires.

Fruit in the Bible references righteous deeds that spring from the fruits of the spirit.  The reason there is no fruit is as follows:

The faithful man has perished from the earth,
And there is no one upright among men.
They all lie in wait for blood;
Every man hunts his brother with a net.
That they may successfully do evil with both hands—

This matches what Jesus predicts of the end times in the gospels that the days will match the violence and wickedness of the days of Noah and Lot.  We also see this passage backing up the violence predicted in Revelation 6 of the second seal and second horseman of the apocalypse, it reads in verse 4:

Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.

The evil is further elaborated on and lines with the book of Daniel, which tells us that the “transgressors will have come to the fill” and also 2 Timothy 3: 1-6 that in the last days perious times will come because of the evil and brutality of men. It reads:

The prince asks for gifts,
The judge seeks a bribe,
And the great man utters his evil desire;
So they scheme together.
The best of them is like a brier;
The most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge;

In the next section of the verse we see that because of this evil comes judgement and these are the Revelation plagues:

The day of your watchman and your punishment comes;
Now shall be their perplexity.

During the Tribulation Jesus warned or the betrayal of family members putting their family members to death in the Antichrist’s police state and we see in the next section further details in Micah, it reads:


Do not trust in a friend;
Do not put your confidence in a companion;
Guard the doors of your mouth
From her who lies in your bosom.
For son dishonors father,
Daughter rises against her mother,
Daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
A man’s enemies are the men of his own household.
Therefore I will look to the Lord;

Jesus quoted from Micah in Matthew 10:36, when he said that a man’s foes will be those of his own household, and micah provides the intimate picture of a woman resting in the arms of her husband, or a daughter in her father’s embrace and the betrayal to death in the midst defying those bonds.
The final section reads like out of the book of Psalms for the person suffering the betrayal.:

I will wait for the God of my salvation;
My God will hear me.

Finally, we see the defeat of the believer’s enemy in those days:

Do not rejoice over me, my enemy;
When I fall, I will arise;
When I sit in darkness,
The Lord will be a light to me.
I will bear the indignation of the Lord,
Because I have sinned against Him,
Until He pleads my case
And executes justice for me.
He will bring me forth to the light;
I will see His righteousness.
10 
Then she who is my enemy will see,
And shame will cover her who said to me,
“Where is the Lord your God?”
My eyes will see her;
Now she will be trampled down
Like mud in the streets.

We know the end of the story and it is not good for those who take the mark of the beast and follow the Antichrist, they are defeated and judged and ultimately cast into the Lake of Fire.

10 Kings of Revelation and Daniel Forming Now! -EU Draft Report



10 Kings of revelation and Daniel Draft Report EU Parliament

Today I am going to report on a draft report on possible evolution of and adjustments to the current institutional set-up of the European Union

The Committee on Constitutional Affairs first published this draft in July of 2016 and issued further amendments in November, this came as a response to the financial crisis, the migrant crisis, BREXIT, return of nationalism, and now since the election of Donald Trump, the urgency for the EU’s own defense capability. 

What I always have stated is that despite the negative reporting in the media of the EU and the belief that it is going to fall apart, the EU continues to move.  Many of the actions that are taken behind the scenes to remedy the EU’s problems are not even reported on in the media. This draft report aims to revamp the structure of the EU’s institutions into a governmental structure that will correct some of the current road blocks that EU is encountering that prevent it from moving forward.  What I want to highlight in this this article and video is that the report possibly outlines what may be the ten nation federation we see in the Revelation, and in the book of Daniel which will be the institutional structure of the EU in its final form and at the height of its power. 

The EU has 27 to 28 members and with so many members, decision making has been difficult, the EU has talked for several decades at least of going forward with an inner core of members to help get past this impasse and the there had been a provision about members having the ability to forge these agreements among themselves and go forward in uniting in any area they wished. This could very well be how the inner core would come about of the ten nations, but this draft processes another possibility of how the ten nation group will come about.

Within the current European Council are 28 members and there is a rotating  six month presidency and a president who resides over the Council who is elected for two and a half years. The Council also includes the Commission president.  The draft talks about doing away abolishing article 15 (1) which establishes this and integrating the European Council into what would be called a Council of States and replace the six month rotating presidency with “a system of permanent chairs chosen from their midst: suggests that the idea of creating a special law Council should be favorably considered.  Thus within the Council of States could be the ten kings the Bible speaks about and forecasts.

It is suggested that the convention to begin this intergovernmental process for a treaty change should begin on the 60th anniversary of Rome,  and according to Euractiv Italian foreign minister Paolo Gentiloni suggested setting up an “inner circle” of core members to reset the EU, so if this draft proposal is not the way this ten king core will occur, it is already proposed another way, so we can expect to see this development and piece of the prophetic puzzle begin to fall into place in 2017.

How to Spot Fake News in End Time Bible Prophecy news


Bible Prophecy News


The Huffington Post wrote several pieces on Fake News and it is coming from many areas,  the liberal left, the Right, YouTube creators whose headlines state an untrue sensational fact to get you to click on the link and in the YouTube world this is called clickbait and when the video does not resemble the headline, the headline can still stick in your mind.  My concern is the fake news that proliferates on your Bible Prophecy websites that do what I do and that is relate news to end time Bible Prophecy and tell you the latest headlines that are fulfilling end  time Bible Prophecy.
What is tragic is that on the list of fake news sites are several evangelical Christian sites. 
1.     There are lists out there such as fake news watch and you can check the list.
http://fakenewswatch.com/
2.     If the site is dominated in US politics with an emphasis on the republicans vs. democrats it is not an end time Bible Prophecy site and is mis representing itself to you.
3.     If the sources listed are not top of the line in the news world, discount it.  An indicator is reliance on US news media alone.
4.     If you do not see a name that you recognize as a new’s site, investigate the site further, but when it doubt click off the site.
5.     If an end time teacher who is known as an end time teacher relays news to you, such as Hal Lindsey, Jack Van Impe, or myself make sure they are providing mainstream news and check on what sources they use.
6.     If the news references any conspiracy click off it immediately.  End Time Bible Prophecy does not come about via a conspiracy of any shape or form, but via geopolitics.   

For a list of good news sources here goes:

News Wires-Associated Press, Reuters, UPI
Mainstream global Media Outlets in both the EU, US, Israel, Russia, and China, some have more prestige than others such as the Financial Times over the Wall Street Journal, Euractiv over Politico EU,
Think tanks in both the EU and US and these each have a bias
Foreign policy journals
World Organization publications
Central Bank publications, press releases and speeches
White House Briefing Room
Knesset Press Releases
The Kremlin
The European Commission reports, press releases, audio visual
The European Parliament reports, press releases, speeches from the MEP’s
Leading University’s such as London School of Economics, MIT,
Interviews with leaders and notables in their fields
Twitter accounts and Facebook pages of leading politicians
EU Political Party president pages, press releases and speeches

In addition I favor and follow the EU news outlets over the US outlets as they provide more EU news and better global coverage than US outlets which are slanted toward entertaining and you can see this in the varying images of the news casters from this side of the Atlantic to European newscasters.   In addition a good deal of news is just omitted because it is not enough to grab the US’s viewers’ attention.  For this reason you will never see any US news outlet as my leading sources.


When you come to Erikagrey.com for Bible Prophecy news you are getting analysis based on top of the line sources and you also get what the mainstream media has not yet reported as I go behind the scenes, and only as it relates to end time Bible Prophecy.  Finally, your Bible Prophecy news person must not only be a journalist but also a Bible Scholar with a good grasp on the prophetic forecasts.  For more on end time Bible Prophecy and for Bible Prophecy news subscribe to my channel prophecy talk today.
