An other look at the events of today by one of our magazines

Much continues to happen in the political world around us, which we find fascinating. France now has a new untested and inexperienced president, who is highly popular and very eager to strengthen the European Union. Britain however has a weakened government that will struggle with the challenges of negotiating Brexit, and has to rely on a small but vocal Protestant party from Northern Ireland to shore up its Parliamentary position. At the same time the first of two new aircraft carriers has moved into open waters for sea trials.

Outside of politics the catastrophic fire that destroyed Grenfell Tower in London with the loss of at least eighty people demonstrates untold suffering and highlights our desperate need for the return of the Saviour.

Helmut Kohl 1989.jpg
Helmut Josef Michael Kohl, German statesman who served as Chancellor of Germany from 1982 to 1998 (of West Germany 1982–1990 and of the reunited Germany 1990–1998) and as the chairman of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) from 1973 to 1998. From 1969 to 1976, Kohl was minister president of the state Rhineland-Palatinate. Kohl chaired the Group of Seven in 1985 and 1992.

In Germany, the eulogies following the death of former Chancellor Helmut Kohl have served as a reminder of the pivotal role he played in the development of the EU. Kohl was Chancellor of Germany (i.e., West Germany and then a reunited Germany) from 1982-1998 and was Germany’s longest serving Chancellor since Bismarck. Most notably, perhaps, he was at the helm when the Berlin Wall fell and is regarded as the “father” of Germany’s reunification in 1990. He was also instrumental in formulating the Maastricht Treaty which created the European Union (EU) and the euro. When world leaders assembled in the European Parliament in Strasbourg to commemorate his life, it was noted that his casket was covered only by an EU flag.
A report in the Daily Telegraph commented:

“EU officials hope the occasion will provide a platform from which to trumpet recent Franco-German efforts to re-energise the pan-European project which had appeared to be flagging after the UK vote for Brexit and a surge in eurosceptic populism” (June 30).

As Britain prepares to leave the EU, a strengthening of the Franco-German axis may well be necessary in order for the European Beast system, as portrayed in the Apocalypse, to play its appointed role in the purpose of God at the time of the end.

In 2011 Newsweek already asked its readers how ignorant they could be and not see that we could be coming to a serious problem or a prophesied time.

In the monthly magazine The Christadelphian Christadelphians show you how we can look at all the above mentioned matters (discussed in the July number) and have to place the events of the day in the light of the coming closer to the prophesied end-times.

In the magazine this month:

 

Our brotherhood provides regularly interesting reading material to help people to have a better insight in what is going on, placing it in the light of God’s Plan and comparing it to past and prophesied events in the Bible.

The different magazines are also not afraid to show how so many people are carried away by the world instead of following the advice of God. We are also not afraid to repeat the call

May the Lord Jesus come soon so that all these problems begin to come to an end. “For the government shall be upon his shoulders …”
