Holy Roman Empire Newspaper Headline

Holy Roman Empire Newspaper Headline


A British journalist recently advised the
European Union to follow in the tradition of Charlemagne. What is Charlemagne’s legacy?
Few people know, even though the most prestigious prize in Europe is named after him.
The rise of a European beast power is one of the most critical prophecies in the Bible.
Learn how Europe will go the way of Charlemagne one last time next, on The Key of David, with
Gerald Flurry. Greetings, everyone. I have just seen the
first crystal-clear headline about the Holy Roman Empire in a newspaper. It was in The
Financial Times of Britain, and now they can SEE that the Holy Roman Empire is on the scene,
and that’s news to THEM and most people in the media, but it’s OLD news to us because
we have been prophesying it for over 70 years, and that is truly amazing. Here’s the headline:
The Holy Roman Empire Can Help Inspire a Different European Union. Now, that’s from The Financial
Times, January 20, 2016. FINALLY, you see, the media sees what we have been prophesying
for these 70 years. Finally there is a clear headline where people see what we have been
talking about oh, so long. I mean, this is one of the most magnificent prophecies in
ALL the Bible, and we have been telling people that this Holy Roman Empire is going to come
on the scene in this very end time, the LAST HEAD of the Holy Roman Empire. It’s about
to END forever. And also people FINALLY see that it IS that
prophecy of Revelation 17 and other prophecies in Daniel, and so on, that we have been talking
about for all these years, and that Holy Roman Empire is going to rise up and shock this
world. FINALLY people see it’s here, but NOW they’re misinterpreting what it’s going to
do! But finally they have seen the great prophecy that we have been talking about for oh, such
a long time. I mean, that’s the first headline I’ve seen with real striking clarity about
that prophecy and about that empire. So we have been telling you about really the
tremendous suffering that will come on this world as a result of that, and also we’ve
been telling you about the CONCLUSION to that Holy Roman Empire. Jesus Christ, Himself,
is going to return to this Earth at the CONCLUSION of that VERY Holy Roman Empire that you see
on the world scene, and it’s almost fully formed right now. It’s there for everybody
to see. It’s one of the greatest prophecies in ALL the Bible and we have LITERALLY been
proclaiming it for over 70 years! How could we POSSIBLY know that was going to happen
unless we got it out of Bible prophecy? Now, again, you see, it’s a new sight to the people
like The Financial Times, but it’s-or new INSIGHT I should say- but it’s not NEW to
us at all. We knew it was coming and have KNOWN it was going to come for these many
years. But the problem here is they talk about, well,
that this Holy Roman Empire can help inspire a different European Union. Yes, it can, but
not the different European Union that they’re talking about, and it isn’t going to be inspiring,
certainly not to the opposition or the enemies of that empire. Look, if you check the history of all the
other, let’s say, the other six heads of the Holy Roman Empire, I’m telling you they were
ALL bloody, bloody empires. They had wars galore! And they INITIATED those wars! Is
this one going to be different? I mean that’s in your history books! Anybody can read that
and know that and understand it. That empire’s been on the scene for about 1500 years, and
ANYBODY can study that history So it’s going to be, see, THEY say it’s going to be different
in a GOOD way and it’s going to help ALL of Europe and inspire Europe, but it’s going
to be JUST LIKE the Holy Roman Empires in the past, only it’s going to be BLOODIER than
all six of them combined. Now, that’s what your Bible says and it’s prophecy, but it
has this magnificent ending that ought to also just, well, make our hair stand on end
in joy because it IS that amazing. But they’re dangerously wrong about the way they think
this is all going to develop, and it says in the Bible that in the Jerusalem area that
blood is going to be up to the horses’ bridles, if you can imagine that. That’s in Jerusalem
and around Jerusalem and in the Jewish state, and it’s almost here, but it has in it bad
news, very bad news, but also the most WONDERFUL news you could possibly ever hear in this
world, the most inspiring news if you see how it concludes, and there are many prophecies
that tell you that. Just many of them. But all these years Herbert Armstrong started
proclaiming that message, even more than 70 years ago, but almost nobody believed him,
and many people SCOFFED. But when you talk about the Holy Roman Empire today, people
don’t scoff because if you explain it to them, they can see that it’s THERE! And we NEED
to understand what it all means. There’s no scoffing today about it being here, but look,
this is all a MIRACLE and no MAN can tell you when the Holy Roman Empire’s going to
rise on the world scene. Only God can do that! That’s a MIRACLE and nobody can interpret
what it’s going to do! That, too, is a MIRACLE and an UNDERSTANDING that comes only from
God! What a prophecy it is! We have a picture we want to show you of when
Herbert Armstrong wrote in The Plain Truth magazine, and he entitled that article: Is
a World Dictator About to Appear, or a modern Charlemagne? Is he about to appear on the
world scene? And that was written in February 1934! And he came to see it more clearly after
World War II and kept prophesying and saying that it was going to rise again, that Germany
was going to rise from all the rubble that was around them after World War II and all
the destruction that was around them. Mr. Armstrong was saying there’s going to come
a world dictator that’s going to come on the world scene, and he’ll be in charge of the
Holy Roman Empire. Here’s what he said in the sub-heading: “Ten nations, one government.
A United Europe!” A Holy Roman Empire blitzkrieg is what he was talking about. “Here is a world
dictator coming on the scene, and he’s going to electrify the world!” That man is going
to electrify the world! You know yourself today if you understand European politics
and the economy, that Germany DICTATES the economy of Europe, and I mean DICTATE it,
and soon they’re going to dictate what it’s doing militarily, that is, ten kings or ten
nations that we’ve been talking about for these many years. That’s coming on the world
scene. Notice the prophecy over in Jeremiah 28 and
verse 8: “The prophets that have been before me and before thee of old prophesied both
against many countries, and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.”
Now, this is just giving you a big historical and prophetic overview of prophecy, and this
prophecy here in particular. Verse 9 says: “The prophet which prophesieth
of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known,
that the LORD hath truly sent him.” So if this MAJOR, MAJOR prophecy of the Bible has
been prophesied all these years, and there are over a hundred Scriptures pertaining to
this prophecy, and it comes to pass, God says you KNOW that there was a prophet that sent
that message. You can KNOW, you see, you can PROVE all this to yourself. You can prove
this very prophecy to yourself, but when it comes to pass, God says you can KNOW that
God sent this man with this message, and this is one of the greatest prophecies in ALL the
Bible. And so what did that make Herbert W. Armstrong? He prophesied THIS prophecy and
frankly many, many more besides this, and they’re all coming to fruition and coming
to pass RIGHT NOW! RIGHT NOW at this time, and we need faith to BELIEVE God! That’s what
we ALL need. I need more of that. You need more of that. We ALL do, and God GIVES us
faith if we’ll ask for that gift. It’s a gift from God, and we NEED that faith. The Financial Times said this: “‘We should
look to the example of Charlemagne,’ writes Peter Wilson.” He says we should look to Charlemagne.
Well, how about that? Should we look to Charlemagne, the First Reich, it’s called. Hitler was the
Third Reich. Should we look to Hitler? Well, here they’re saying we should look to Charlemagne,
but how different was Charlemagne than Adolf Hitler in World War II? In a war he CAUSED,
and CAUSED the death of 60 million people! Should we really look to the example of Charlemagne?
I mean, people CONTINUE to revere that man, down to the present time. Otto the Great,
they said he had the crown of Charlemagne. Napoleon was hailed as a re-born Charlemagne.
Adolf Hitler was a faithful student of Charlemagne’s vision of Europe. I should say he WAS faithful.
Charlemagne had the First Reich, Hitler called his empire the Third Reich. Should we look
to those men as examples? That’s really almost like a sick joke if you understand the history
of what I’m talking to you about. It really is that bad. Hitler started World War II and
he tried to exterminate all the Jews in Europe and DID kill 6 million of them, and Charlemagne
had a similar hatred for the Jews. And you could get into serious trouble for even keeping
the seventh-day Sabbath that the Jews keep. But what about this looking to Charlemagne?
That is FRIGHTENING to even ponder. But here notice what it says about Adolf Hitler.
“During the rhetorical passages his voice mounted to the pitch of DELIRIUM. He was a
man transformed AND possessed. We were in the presence of a miracle.” That’s just from
John Toland’s book on page 598. I mean there was a supernatural miracle there. There was
some evil influence from an evil spirit. Even after World War II, Germany was finally
beaten by Britain and America and other countries, and here’s what Winston Churchill and Franklin
Roosevelt said: “It is our inflexible purpose to destroy German militarism and Nazism, to
ensure Germany will never again be able to disturb the peace of the world.” They also started World War I and the War
of 1870, and many other wars throughout their history. They just are prone to do that because
they’re a part of, in most cases a part of the Holy Roman Empire. Notice what the Encyclopedia Britannica explains:
“The first three decades of Charlemagne’s reign were dominated by military campaigns,
which were prompted by a variety of factors: The need to defend his realm against external
foes and internal separatists, a desire for conquest and booty, a keen sense of opportunities
offered by changing power relationships, and an urge to spread Christianity.” And as I
said, it was illegal to keep Saturday as your Sabbath. This man waded through BLOOD, rivers
of blood it is said, in conquering people and converting them to his belief, his religious
beliefs. Let me give you a quote here: “As emperor
of the Holy Roman Empire,” this is from our book on The Holy Roman Empire in Prophecy,
“As emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, Charles felt it his duty to spread the Christian faith
using whatever means necessary. The new Encyclopedia Britannica says: ‘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,'” that’s
his religious law,”‘or continued to engage in pagan practices,'” as HE called them or
HE understood them, “‘called forth criticism in Charles’ own circle,'” his own circle of
friends were beginning to say, “What are you doing, being so bloody in your pursuits, your
warfare? Unlike anything we’ve done in the past!” Well, how about that? Are we to look
to that example? That’s what The Financial Times says. Are we to look to an example like
that, where he was going out and just KILLING people unlike they had ever done before in
the Holy Roman Empire? No history like THAT! Notice what it says, well, I’ll just paraphrase
what it says about the Jews. They couldn’t marry Christians, and if a Christian even
ate a MEAL with a Jew, he risked excommunication. Remember how Adolf Hitler HATED the Jews and
wanted to EXTERMINATE them? Well, Charlemagne certainly didn’t treat them very well. Is
this the example that we want to look to? Hitler looked to that example, I’m telling
you. He ALSO headed the Holy Roman Empire, the sixth head. Is that the kind of person
we want to look to? He even called his Third Reich, that after Charlemagne, and look what
it did to him and look what it did to Germany. Is that the example we want to look to? Do
these people REALLY understand the HISTORY that they’re talking about? That’s alarming!
And it needs to be understood because, let me tell you, it’s not going to turn out the
way The Financial Times writer thinks it is, not at all. It’s going to be just radically
contrary to that. Well, anyhow, Charlemagne allowed the church
to regulate the lives of the subjects, and it says here in our booklet: “Despite Charlemagne’s
wars and violence, his reign was not one of brutality and barbarism alone. Historians
speak of the Renaissance, a revival of arts and learning that took place under Charlemagne.”
And it says here: “To the western mind, the image of an enlightened ruler promoting education
for all, seems incompatible with the violent warrior converting thousands by the sword.
But it teaches us an important point. Culture and peace do not always go together. Modern
Europe may appear to be a cultured and sophisticated group of nations, but as history reveals,
that does not mean it is immune to Charlemagne’s style of violence.” You need to keep that
in mind. And well, I’ll just go on here and mention that that was all done, you see, by
Charlemagne and those who followed in that tradition. But here again, for over 70 years we’ve been
talking about this and you just hear nothing about The Holy Roman Empire, you read nothing
about it, And yet, now it’s finally here, and people are beginning to see it and wondering,
well, where is it going to take us? What is going to be the outcome of all this? Well,
you’ll only KNOW that if you understand Bible prophecy, and it is going to double-shock
and triple-shock this world, and so we need to know what is going to happen AND get to
doing what we should be doing so God will protect us. And He WILL do that to those who
are obedient to Him, those who help get this message out to the world, who are DOERS of
the Word. They DO what they read in the Bible. And God is going to protect those people.
He always has! Now, there have been exceptions of course. Many prophets have been KILLED
as a witness against this evil world, but let me tell you, the analysis of The Financial
Times is just DREADFULLY wrong, and yet we have a conclusion that’s going to be just
practically make us faint that it’s so wonderful. But in the past, you see, the media has just
rejected these wonderful truths. Well, you can see there was Bernard Connolly
in 1995 wrote a book, he was on the inside of the EU or European Union, and he wrote
a book about The Rotten Heart of Europe, and he says inside there, it’s a battle of who’s
going to get control of that European super-state. And it’s pretty obvious to everybody NOW who
has ALREADY gotten control of it, and that’s Germany, and he said the end could be GHASTLY!
Yes, it could! And maybe The Financial Times writer should read his book because it is
alarming, indeed. He said that European Union is just a European cloak for German ambitions.
Now, that’s a person from the INSIDE that wrote that, and now we talk about getting
in the spirit of Charlemagne. That’s what everybody is talking about. This new empire,
it ought to be in the spirit of Charlemagne. Do they really, truly understand what Charlemagne
did on this Earth? And how much blood he shed of other people, just converting them to his
religion? Well, you’re going to see an explosion of violence. But notice Daniel 8 and verse 23. There’s
going to be a strong man come on the scene, and I think you may very well see that even
as early as this year, and maybe even the early PART of this year. Notice this, there’s
a strong man coming on the scene and everything’s going to change DRAMATICALLY when he gets
in charge: “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to
the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand
up.” Now, this is that world dictator that Herbert W. Armstrong was talking about 70
years ago! Verse 24: “And his power shall be mighty,
but not by his own power:” oh, you mean there’s going to be an evil spirit influence there?
Yes, there is! “…not by his own power, and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper,
and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.” There he goes after
the SPIRITUAL Jews, in this case, God’s own people, and those that are lukewarm, God says,
are going to have a rough, rough time. They can’t even imagine how rough it’s going to
be. Verse 25, notice the fantastic crescendo here
at the END that is just so inspiring: “And through his policy also he shall cause craft
to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy
many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes;” that’s Jesus Christ, “but he
shall be broken without hand.” Now, that is the MAGNIFICENT CONCLUSION to all this. Let me just quickly read you a couple other
Scriptures. Revelation 17, verses 7 and 8, it talks about: “And the angel said unto me,
Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast
that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.” See, those are the ten kings
that Mr. Armstrong was talking about, or the ten NATIONS. You’re going to see 28 nations
pared down to 10 before this is over, and it’s going to happen quickly. “The beast that thou sawest was, and is not;
and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit,” In other words, it went underground after
World War II, but now it’s back out and it’s not going to be going underground anymore. But look at verse 17 and you can see that
God, Himself, is ORCHESTRATING this to punish people who are so evil, and you need to understand
it. I tell you, we all need to understand it. But those ten nations are about to be
formed, and it’s going to shock the world when it all happens. Verse 10 of Revelation 17: “And there are
seven kings: five are fallen, and one is,” well, that ‘one is’ was when Mr. Armstrong
was on the scene, and he explained all about it. That’s why it says ‘one is,’ “and the
other is not yet come;” but now it HAS come. Mr. Armstrong is gone from the scene, but
now there’s the last era of God’s Church is here, PROPHESYING the same prophecy that Mr.
Armstrong talked about for so many years. What just an AMAZING group of prophecies!
See, the one “that is” was Adolf Hitler, and Mr. Armstrong explained all of that and said
there’s going to come another head, the last head of the Holy Roman Empire, and then that
empire is going to be destroyed forever! Jesus Christ is going to return to this Earth and
give it the peace and joy and happiness and just every blessing you can possibly imagine!
He’s going to fill this Earth with joy, and I mean that is coming at the CONCLUSION of
this Holy Roman Empire that we read about today, even in the news media beginning, it
seems like, with The Financial Times. But you’re going to hear a lot more about that
Holy Roman Empire and the grand smashing conclusion when Jesus Christ returns to this Earth to
bring us all the blessings and the joy that we should have been enjoying for six thousand
years. Until next week, this is Gerald Flurry, goodbye,
