Deutsche Bank may be about to go bust. If it does, it could bring down Germany’s economy as well as Europe’s. Even a bailout would have major implications for German politics and the eurozone. But Deutsche Bank is just one sign of many that the global financial crisis is about to hit Germany. Trumpet staff writer Richard Palmer explains how this will shake the world. Also on today’s show, the most worrying aspect of the United States presidential debate, and will Elon Musk colonize Mars?
David contemplated the world and worlds beyond in Psalm 19, writing, “The heavens declare the glory of God.” So do the depths.
Isaiah wrote in Isaiah 51:16 that God intends to “plant the heavens,” filling the universe with life. New discoveries from the depths show the variety and genius of life that is possible. Today, God has confined physical life to Earth. Yet He has filled even its deepest, darkest cracks with stunning creatures. We “see through a glass, darkly” (1 Corinthians 13:12). But when the time comes to populate the universe, just how full of inventive, resilient, captivating life will it be?
On today’s program, we look back at the efforts of the late Shimon Peres to form a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. Peres’s numerous and diligent attempts over the years to forge a peace agreement were lauded by many. Yet hostilities between Israel and the Palestinian people continue to this day. Bible prophecy describes Israel’s efforts to negotiate with its enemies as a “deadly wound.” Stephen Flurry discusses this history and the fascinating role Hebert W. Armstrong played in it, all on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show.
• A world without nuclear weapons is an enticing dream—but one analyst says that the way the United States is pursuing that goal is extremely dangerous, and is actually increasing the likelihood of nuclear warfare.
• Another dream that has been discussed for years is that of a pan-European army. But this is becoming more than just a dream. In the wake of Britain’s decision to leave the EU, it is fast turning into a reality.
• Evolutionists explain a whole lot of the majesty, beauty and elegance of the physical world by pointing to natural selection. But their theories are full of speculation—and in some cases are downright ludicrous.
• I’ll conclude the program by talking about one of the best things that you can do for your son.
“The widespread instability in Europe, China, Russia and the Middle East … is something we haven’t seen since before World War II,” George Friedman wrote earlier this month. From the proliferation of nuclear weapons to America’s waning power, the stage is being set for another world war to suddenly shock the globe—except this time it will be much worse than the previous two world wars. On today’s program, Stephen Flurry explores some of the most dangerous trends that are quickly leading toward World War III.
In The King of the South, Trumpet editor in chiefGerald Flurry explains from Bible prophecy that Iran’s nefarious activities will continue until a superpower decisively and violently deals with Iran—once and for all. Daniel 11:40 reads, “And at the time of the end shall the king of the south [radical Islam led by Iran] push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.”
This superpower will not be the United States. It will be a union of European nations. One reason Europe will decide to confront Iran is that the Islamic Republic is the king of radical Islam, and its influence is global.
Iran’s brand of radical Islam is strong in Central and South America for the same reason it is strong in Africa and Europe. The United States acknowledges Iran’s terror network, but it also tolerates it to a great extent. The Bible prophesies that a European power will violently clash with Iran’s network of radical Islamists. Thankfully, that clash will lead events that culminate in an era of global peace!
When those scrolls are deciphered, Christians and Jews can look forward to adding to the pile of mounting evidence proving that the Bible was accurately transmitted through history.
