WHERE IS THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE?
The Lord has a way of hiding information in plain sight. I believe the Bible indicates that the European Union will become the end time beast power. They will be involved in a great war in the Middle East and the Vatican will participate in administration of the Holy Land. The following article is from: https://www.thetrumpet.com/15652-germany-and-the-last-holy-roman-empire and looks into the current state of the EU.
Charlemagne’s Legacy Some German and European leaders are lionizing the history of the Holy Roman Empire. There is strong evidence that some are actually preparing for one final resurrection of that empire!
The late European parliamentarian Otto von Habsburg said, “The [European] Community is living largely by the heritage of the Holy Roman Empire, though the great majority of the people who live by it don’t know by what heritage they live.” This means that our historians, politicians and the media are asleep and dangerously deceived about this empire.
Mr. Habsburg was a descendant of the Habsburg dynasty that ruled the Holy Roman Empire for 400 years. He was one of many leaders who have recognized the symbolic power of that empire. Referring to the crown that resides in a museum in Vienna, Austria, he said, “We possess a European symbol which belongs to all nations of Europe equally; this is the crown of the Holy Roman Empire, which embodies the tradition of Charlemagne.”
You are going to see that crown take on more than just symbolic meaning. That empire is prophesied to rise again! It is ready to burst on the world scene shortly—perhaps even in 2017! And the head of that empire will be a king with a crown! He will rule over all of Europe in the tradition of Charlemagne. What is the tradition of Charlemagne? The Frankish King Charlemagne waded through rivers of blood to convert Europeans to Catholicism. If they didn’t convert, they died! You can read more about this history in our free booklet
The Holy Roman Empire in Prophecy
Charlemagne was the second head of the Holy Roman Empire; Adolf Hitler was the sixth. Hitler also ruled in the spirit of Charlemagne, his hero. Charlemagne’s kingdom was the First Reich; Hitler’s was the Third Reich. Yet, today, Germans are proud of Charlemagne’s legacy!
The 2002 edition of Encyclopedia Britannica offers this disturbing statement about Charlemagne’s forced conversion of the Saxons: “But the violent methods by which this missionary task was carried out had been unknown to the earlier Middle Ages, and the sanguinary [or bloody] punishment meted out to those who broke canon law or continued to engage in pagan practices called forth criticism in Charles’s own circle ….” Even Charlemagne’s closest advisers were alarmed by his bloody punishment of those who broke his canon law or engaged in pagan practices! Those engaged in “pagan practices” were people who refused to practice his Catholic religion, which is filled with pagan practices, according to the Bible.
Despite the barbaric nature of its history, Europe still wants to resurrect the Holy Roman Empire in the tradition of Charlemagne! So beware of what this empire is about to inflict on this world!
In his 1995 book The Rotten Heart of Europe, British economist Bernard Connolly wrote about an agreement signed in September 1978 between then French President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing and then German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt. The signing ceremony was held in Aachen, Germany, “principal seat and burial place of Charlemagne,” Connolly wrote. “The symbolism was heavily underlined in both France and Germany; the two leaders paid a special visit to the throne of Charlemagne and a special service was held in the cathedral; at the end of the summit, Giscard remarked that: ‘Perhaps when we discussed monetary problems, the spirit of Charlemagne brooded over us’” (emphasis mine).
Mr. Connolly also called the European Union a “cloak for German ambitions”! Insiders don’t want people to know the real motive behind the EU. Historian Paul Johnson wrote in A History of Christianity, “We are right to regard the total Christianity of the Carolingian Age as one of the great formative phases of human history.” The Holy Roman Empire has left a permanent mark on history. We can expect the final resurgence of this kingdom to do more of the same.
The signs are hidden in plain sight!
