Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Dec 3 - Dec 9, 2017

After going through our own wild-fire evacuations and scares this past summer, we certainly are cognitive of the present wild-fires situation in California.  Our prayers go out to the folks in Southern California and we look to our God of miracles to douse these flames very, very soon.

In other news, we came across the following articles which seem to come right out of bible prophecy:

The rise of the final world leader from Revived Roman Empire, (Daniel 9:26)

Introducing Europe’s Eastern Strongmen: Political trends in Europe right now are tracking remarkably close to the Bible’s prophecies.
European Union bureaucrats are struggling to deal with a new type of leader. He is not sophisticated, multicultural and managerial. He is not soft, consensus-building and wary of giving offense. He is strong. He is patriotic. He is decisive. He is everything the European Commission in Brussels is not. European bureaucrats hate him. Yet this type of leader is emerging in country after country. Whether bureaucrats like it or not, these strongmen are Europe’s future.

The Revived Roman Empire, (Daniel 7):
