America Now Well Within Range of North Korean Nukes

North Korea broke out of its two-month lull yesterday in spectacular fashion—by launching its most advanced intercontinental ballistic missile to date. The missile reached a height of over 2,500 miles. Defense experts say that every American city is now in North Korea’s sites. North Korea is a serious threat to global security. Other terrorist states, like Iran, aren’t far behind in their nuclear development. These provocations should shock the world into action! Yet most people aren’t concerned about how to solve these problems! Bible prophecy says where this is leading. For more on this topic, listen to today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show.

Britain and the Royal Family Have Changed Dramatically This Year

Britain and America are abuzz over the news of the royal engagement. With the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the British royal family has finally entered the 21st century, according to one writer at the New York Times. The engagement appears to be one bright spot in a difficult year for Britain and its royal family. But can Meghan Markle rescue the monarchy in Britain? On today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show, we discuss the latest on the royal engagement and what it means for the future of the royal family and the United Kingdom.

THE NEW STRONGMAN AGE

https://www.thetrumpet.com/16539-the-new-strongman-age

This global trend is actually prophesied in your Bible! Thousands of years ago, the Bible foretold of our day, when the world would revert to a much darker, more barbaric time of authoritarian rule that leads to war! Except this time, the barbarism will be carried out with weapons of mass destruction.

Today, we often call these strong leaders authoritarians, dictators or autocrats. The Bible calls them kings and princes. In Daniel 11:40, for example, it says “at the time of the end” the king of the south shall push at the king of the north—two mighty kings colliding in a spectacular clash.

The Trumpet identified radical Islam as the “king of the south” in the early 1990s. We identified Iran as the leader of that movement back in 1994. And look at the power Iran’s supreme leader has amassed since we made that declaration—particularly since 9/11. Some Iranians have attempted to weaken the power of the aptly named “supreme leader.” Some have tried to establish more democracy in the Islamic “Republic” of Iran, like the failed Green Revolution in 2009. The United States government at the time let that revolution die. Today, America is celebrating the collapse of the Islamic State. But under the grip of a strongman and his clerics, Iran is the one collecting the spoils of war in Iraq and Syria.

The king of the north is the German-led European combine of 10 nations or groups of nations. Bible prophecy specifies that this superpower will be led by perhaps the most powerful political strongman of them all! Daniel 8:23 describes him as “a king of fierce countenance.” “And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper …” (verse 24). This man has not yet attained power in Europe. But he will—soon. He will emerge from the strongest nation in Europe: Germany.

This Daniel 8 figure will be a strongman among strongmen. He will receive powerful support from 10 other authoritarian leaders in Europe. Notice Revelation 17:12-13: “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast [the European superstate]. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”

This United States of Europe will unleash a hurricane-like force of destruction against Iran and its radical Islamist followers. This Daniel 11:40 clash will ignite World War iii, a time of trouble like no other since the beginning of the world (Matthew 24:21-22).

During the Great Tribulation, Daniel 11 also says that tidings out of the east and north will trouble the European beast power. The reference point for prophecy is Jerusalem. Much of radical Islam is located south of Jerusalem. The rising European superpower lies to its north. And to the east and north of Jerusalem lie Russia and China. God refers to these and other nations in the prophesied Asiatic military alliance as the kings of the east (Revelation 16:12).

More kings! The head of the Asiatic hordes will be Vladimir Putin in Russia. The original Hebrew words in Ezekiel 38:2 prophesy of a prince of RoshRussia. That prince is here today: Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Again, notice how many of these latter-day prophecies contain references to authoritarian princes and kings.

Notice, also, that the U.S. and Britain aren’t mentioned anywhere in these prophecies! There is no “king of the west.” These once great powers are nowhere to be seen! Prophecies like Isaiah 3:1-2 specifically say that America and Britain will be without strong leadership in the end time.

Christ described the period just before His return as the “times of the Gentiles” (Luke 21:24). America and Britain’s time on the global stage is at its end, opening the way for powers like Russia, China and Germany to rise.

In this Trumpet issue, we look more closely at how this trend is playing out in countries all over the world—in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. You will see what a vivid illustration of fulfilled prophecy this trend is!

For millennia, human beings have lived and died under authoritarian rulers who have taxed them, oppressed them and sent them to war. In the 19th and 20th centuries, many nations experimented to see if power over people could successfully be taken away from authoritarians and given to the people themselves—and if that democratic form of republican government would lead to a better world. Now we are seeing that this experiment has failed, and we are falling back into a dark age. Except now, the kings can press a button and destroy millions of people!

This makes the case—as powerfully as it can be made—that we don’t know how to rule ourselves. This makes the case that we need a strong leader. But not another strong man. We need the leadership of a strong God! We need to end this experiment of rebellion against Him that started in the Garden of Eden, and we need to put our hope—our very last hope—in the soon-coming rule of Jesus Christ, the King of kings.

What You Should Know About the Uranium One Scandal

How much did the Obama administration know about Russia’s goal to control the world’s uranium supply when it approved a controversial deal in 2010 that gave Russia ownership of vast amounts of uranium reserves around the world? John Solomon at The Hill wonders why the Obama administration made so many “Russia-favorable” decisions during its time in the White House. On today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show, we explain the significance of this story and the aspects that are most important.

The World’s Greatest Empire Is Hidden

The Greeks, Romans and other world-ruling empires throughout history made no secret of their tremendous power, flaunting and displaying it for all to see. But the greatest empire in the world today prefers to remain hidden. Learn the identity of this empire, and the impact it will soon have on all people—next, on The Key of David, with Gerald Flurry.

The biblical book of Revelation is a timeline of events leading to the return of Jesus Christ. It exposes the Holy Roman Empire for the satanic superpower that it is. But without the book of Daniel, it is impossible to understand the book of Revelation. Request Gerald Flurry’s free book Daniel Unlocks Revelation to understand how these two books are forever intertwined. The Prophet Daniel continually realized that God was his judge and therefore refused to compromise, regardless of the trial he found himself in. It is only to someone with that kind of an attitude that God can reveal spiritual understanding that unlocks His incredible revelation.

Many people are aware of the atrocities committed by Germany in World War ii. However, World War ii is now considered by most to be ancient history. These people are completely unaware of the legacy that Adolf Hitler drew upon in creating his Nazi war machine. Request our free booklet Germany and the Holy Roman Empire to prove that Hitler was merely the latest resurrection of a war-making empire with a long and bloody history. The Bible prophesied of his regime—as well as the terrible emergence of one last resurrection in our day.

The Holy Roman Empire has made pivotal and defining contributions to Western civilization—but its many reincarnations have also come with painful and catastrophic consequences. Request our free book The Holy Roman Empire in Prophecy to see how European leaders aim to reunite their fractured continent by reviving the legacy of this extraordinary church-state combine. One of the great lessons of this empire is that it always comes back. There is always another resurrection. The Holy Roman Empire is not just a relic of history. It is about to play a central role in world events. Coming to understand the nature and character of this powerful institution tells you as much about the future as it does about the past.

All our literature is available free of charge, at no cost or obligation to you. Request Daniel Unlocks Revelation, Germany and the Holy Roman Empire, and The Holy Roman Empire in Prophecy. Order now!

Is Germany’s Political Crisis Over?

Germany is not in crisis—at least according to several articles in the German media. “Angela Merkel’s German Coalition Crisis Greatly Exaggerated” is a headline in Deutsche Welle. If Germany is in crisis “[n]o one has told the well-heeled Christmas shoppers crowding Berlin’s stores,” wrote Philip Stephens in the Financial Times. “Wages are high, unemployment is low, and the government is awash with cash. Crisis, Germans are asking, what crisis?”

Germany’s main left-wing party, the Social Democrats, has said it may be willing to work with Angela Merkel and her center-right Christian Democratic Union. Together, these two groups could form a coalition. Is that it then? The German crisis solved?

In today’s show theTrumpet.com assistant managing editor Richard Palmer gets to the roots of the German crisis, and shows why the situation is still profoundly dangerous. Also on today’s show, Britain’s history with Thanksgiving.

Germany’s Biblical Indentity

The Germani descended from the ancient Assyrians.

This is key to understanding end-time Bible prophecy.

Anciently, God used the Assyrians to correct His nation Israel.

“Then the king of Assyria came up throughout all the land, and went up to Samaria, and besieged it three years” (2 Kings 17:5).

Bible prophecy says God will use Germany to correct America and Britain.

“O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is my indignation. I will send him against an hypocritical nation …” (Isaiah 10:5-6).
