David’s Comment: The Heart of the Problem with Europe ……….
Rev 2:12-13 “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, ‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword: “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. (NKJ)
I have just returned to Israel after a week in the USA and 4 days in Sweden. Sweden used to be an extremely strong Christian nation, but is now a very secular nation, which like most of Europe now favours Islam over Christianity and Judaism. The European Union (EU) has risen up to be a major world power bloc and many see it as the revived Roman Empire. The EU is notorious for its anti-Israel / pro Palestinian stance. As you will learn from the video that I recommend at the end of this comment, Europe can’t help being anti God and anti Israel. Europe’s roots, both natural and spiritual explain why this is so. In the natural, Europe’s power comes from Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome. As the prophet Daniel foretold in chapter 2, the Medo-Persian empire defeated the ancient Babylonian empire at Babylon and maintained their seat of power there. The Greeks attacked and defeated the Medo-Persias at Babylon and maintained their seat of power there. Next, the Roman empire attacked and defeated the Greeks at Babylon, however they moved the seat of power to Rome. That is how the spirit of Babylon entered Europe more than 2000 years ago
In the spirit realm, according to Greek mythology, ( I believe there is a hidden truth behind many myths ) one day the Greek god Zeus spotted a beautiful young woman on the shores of Phonecia (northern Israel / south Lebanon coast). Disguising himself as a bull, Zeus came down to Earth and raped the woman. She climbed onto his back, grabbed hold of his two horns (the shape of half moon cresent – the symbol of Baal and Islam) and they rode off together into the sea and headed north. The woman’s name was Europa. So in the spirit realm Europe was founded on the rape of Europa. The woman riding the beast is also seen in the book of Revelation. She is seen today in the form of a grotesque metal sculpture of the woman riding the beast situated outside of the EU headquarters in Strasbourg. She also features on the Greek 2 Euro coin and in other EU advertising. The EU Headquarters in Brussels is designed to look like the unfinished Tower of Babel. Several years ago, a high level EU official stated “What they failed to do at Babel,we will complete.” It is very clear to see that Europe today is totally controlled by the spirit of Babylon.
Over the last 30 years or so, millions of Muslims have entered many of the nations of Europe, with the two strongest EU countries, France and Germany having the largest Muslim populations. As a result of the civil war in Syria, over the last 3 years, many nations in Europe have been flooded with hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees. I see this as the Devils way of strengthening the Babylonian roots of Europe planted when the Romans defeated the Greeks and moved the seat of power to Rome. Sweden has also been swamped with almost a million Muslims. And of course the Muslims of Europe hate Israel and the Jewish people, so the growing Muslim presence in Europe is causing a serious increase in anti-Semitism.
It was the ancient Babylonian spirit that empowered Hitler and the Nazis. Hitler and his leaders were deep into Babylonian occult practices. The reason behind this is that In 1889 Germans archeologists discovered the Temple of Pergamum in Turkey. They dismantled it and reassembled it in a Berlin museum. A few years later German archeologists discovered the Ishtar Gate which was the main entrance to ancient Babylon, and relocated that to the same Berlin Museum in 1913. So the gateway to Babylon and the Temple of Pergamum were now in Germany, one of the dominant nations in Europe, which was founded by the rape of Europa and the relocation of the Babylonian seat of power to Rome. Do you see the picture ? One more interesting fact – According to the Bible, the Temple of Pergamum is where the Throne of Satan is located !!! (Revelation 2:13). And it has been in Germany since 1913 !
It was only a few years after these abominations were taken to Berlin, that the German church officially pronounced the moves of God in Wales in 1904 and Azuza St in 1906 as not of God, but of the Devil, and almost immediately the Nazis began to rise to power in Germany. Hitler even built a copy of the Ishtar gate at his headquarters in Munich. Is it any wonder the most horrendous persecution ever to be launched against the Jewish people and others originated in Germany, in whose capital, Berlin, still sits Satan’s Throne ?
What does that all mean for us today ? Particularly to the people of Europe and other EU member states. Satan’s Throne and the Ishtar Gate are still there in Berlin, and I believe they are still exerting their evil spiritual powers over the leaders and the people of Germany and Europe. And Muslims from all over the Middle East are pouring into Europe to add to the spiritual overthrow of once Christian Europe. Europe is being raped once again. And Europe is building itself up to take over from the USA as the dominant world power. You can see it. The Euro which was once 10% weaker that the US Dollar is now 15% stronger than the Dollar. European aircraft manufacturer, Airbus Industries, have taken over from the US company Boeing as the dominant passenger aircraft supplier with more sales than Boeing for the last 5 years. Airbus sold 200 more planes than Boeing in 2017.
Europe has a serious problem. Its leaders, whether they realise it or not, are facing off against YHVH, the CREATOR of the Universe, also known as The GOD of Israel. Three thousand years ago foolish men tried to do the same thing in Babel. They thought they could reach and overthrow GOD, but they did not know who they were dealing with and their tower came down.Todays leaders also do not know who they are dealing with, and the question to be asked is how high will YHVH allow them to build their tower before He brings it down and establishes His Son Yeshua as King of Kings and Lord of Lords ? The leaders of Europe (and the United Nations) have a very serious heart problem and they are skating on very thin ice.

The LORD bless you as you bless Israel by standing in defense of her right to exist on the land given to the Jewish people by the GOD of Israel. Lets pray that Israel will turn back to their GOD. Do not be silent, but share this with your fellow Christians, share it with your pastors, and with anyone you have a chance to speak to. Lets also pray for a breakthrough to the Muslims, and please remember to pray Divine protection for all of the soldiers in the IDF.
Shabbat Shalom …… David & Josie

Thousands of Israeli Arabs in the city of Umm al-Fahm on Monday night attended the late-night funeral of the terrorist who was shot dead by police after he tried to stab apolice officer in the Old City of Jerusalem on Friday. In a blatant display of support for terrorism in the northern Israeli-Arab city of Umm al-Fahm, ecstatic crowds chanted ?in spirit and blood we will redeem the Shahid (martyr),? launched firecrackers, flew Palestinian flags and shot into the air. The police released the terrorist?s body on condition that only 50 people would attend the procession in order to prevent the funeral from becoming a mass public display of support for terrorism. The family was also required to post bail of NIS 50,000 as a guarantee of compliance. However, the conditions were not met and police seized the funds, which were donated by the residents of Um al-Fahm to the terrorist?s family.

4. US Will Not Increase Demands on Israel After Embassy Moved to Jerusalem World Israel News Aug 22nd
President Trump?s national security adviser says there?s no timetable for releasing the administration?s much-anticipated Mideast peace plan and that the move of the US embassy from to Jerusalem was a principled move that was not made in return for Israeli concessions. John Bolton said Wednesday in Jerusalem at a press conference to sum up his 3 days in Israel that a ?lot of progress? has been made, but he refused to speculate what the plan entailed or when it may be publicized. The Trump administration recently began staffing its Mideast policy team ahead of the plan?s expected release. ?On the peace plan, work continues. There are a lot of consultations that are underway, and there?s no decision on when the timing of the full plan will be announced,? he stated. There have been dramatic geo-strategic changes in the Middle East with the recognition that the Iran deal has failed and failed badly. That gives the possibility of re-alignment with Israel and many of its Arab neighbors that no one would have predicted years before.? ?In terms of the specifics of when the plan might be rolled out, no decision as of now,? he said. Trump officials have long promised the most comprehensive package ever put forward toward resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Palestinians have stated they consider it a non-starter given Trump?s alleged bias toward Israel and his unilateral recognition of Jerusalem as its capital. Pray that the Trump peace plan involves absolutely no “land for peace” clauses and does call for another state anywhere in the Promised Land.
5. UK, EU Condemn New Construction in Israel i24 News Aug 23rd
The European Union and British government on Thursday condemned Israel’s approval of 1000 new housing units in the West Bank settlements. Israeli authorities gave a final green-light to 382 new homes in Jewish settlements on Wednesday and advanced plans for some 600 more. The plans include 370 housing units in the Adam settlement, where three Israelis were stabbed by a Palestinian in July. (the so called) Palestinians, who want to establish an independent state in the West Bank, say Israeli settlement growth hinders the prospect of a viable state. The UK’s Middle East Minister called on Israel “to halt such counterproductive action” and encouraged “all parties to commit to further efforts to de-escalate current tensions and create the right environment for a just and lasting peace.” “Settlements are illegal under international law and remain one of the obstacles to a viable two state solution,” Burt said in a statement. “Yesterday?s announcement of plans to construct over 1,000 units on the West Bank, and last week?s tendering for 1,100 more, continues policies that are rightly condemned internationally. The UK echoes this condemnation today.” Pray that these new units will be built and that many more will be built as required in the future.
6. Iran Threatens to Attack Israel if USA Strikes Iran INN News Aug 22
One of Iran?s top clerics warned Wednesday morning that the regime in Tehran would strike Israel in retaliation for any ?harm?in the slightest way? by the US against Iran. Ayatollah Seyed Ahmad Khatami, a member of the Islamic republic?s religious governing body known as the Assembly of Experts, told worshippers at an Eid al-Ahda event in Tehran Wednesday morning that Iran would not accept President Donald Trump?s offer to engage in negotiations. ?Americans say you should accept what we say in the talks,? Khatami said, according to a report by Mizan. ?So this is not negotiation, but dictatorship. The Islamic Republic and the Iranian nation would stand up against dictatorships. Pray that this current evil Iranian regime will be overthown by the good people of Iran
7. Israel Relaxes Gun Laws World News Israel Aug 21st
Israeli’s Minister of Interior Security ha approved a plan to increase the number of weapons licenses in Israel through a change in the nations gun liscensing laws that will enable hundreds of thousands of veterans of the IDF?s infantry units to obtain a gun license, allowing the number of arms license holders in Israel to significantly increase. According to the new rules, officers and commanders would not be required to return their weapons upon release from active reserve duty and could request to continue carrying them. As a result of the new policy, the number of skilled weapons-carriers in the public sphere will increase by over half a million with veterans of the security forces and thousands of volunteers from the Israel Police and rescue organizations. The minister also enacted regulations that significantly upgrade the training process for new license applicants and holders of existing licenses. ?Many civilians have saved lives during terror attacks, and in an age of ?individual terrorists? ? the more skilled civilians carrying weapons, the greater the chance of thwarting attacks without casualties and reducing the number of casualties,?he stated. ?Skilled civilians holding guns in the public space contribute to the sense of security, constitute an important defence line against individual attacks and serve as incidental power multipliers, thereby strengthening public safety,? he added. ?The new policy balances the need to protect the public who may be at risk and the need to protect the public from the improper use of guns.? Pray that this new law will indeed help to decrease terror attacks and save live.
