Looking For Mr. Europe — What Herb Thinks

The European Union is like a kindergarten class with nobody in charge.

Britain, Spain, Italy and a few of the bigger, newer students are grouping together and attempting to become a gang. France, Germany and Belgium are standing together on the teacher’s desk refusing to come down. The remainder of the class are cowering in their seats and wondering where the teacher is.

Outside it’s even worse. It seems the entire school has become involved with what’s going on in the classroom and has chosen sides. For the most part they’re rooting for France, Germany and Belgium. In other words, now the whole school is in an uproar (Read about it here).

And here’s the scary part: There’s no one to stop the chaos. You see, it’s not that the teacher is away — there is no teacher. Not only that, there’s no school principal either.

What will happen next? I don’t know. However, I’ve got some thoughts.

The two main factions have evidently agreed to meet at an emergency summit on Monday. If the newer students are not allowed at the meeting, France, Germany and Belgium have agreed to come down and see if they could find common ground with Britain, Spain and Italy (Read about it here).

And here’s where things become interesting for that small group of students — the prophecy students. You see, these students already know what’s going to happen. No, they don’t know when it’s going to happen. But, they know what’s going to happen. According to their textbook — the Bible — out of this chaos will come one, powerful new leader. They’ll call him Mr. Europe.

Will it happen at this meeting? Like I said before, that’s something these prophecy students don’t know.

But one thing is for sure — they’ll be watching.

Stay tuned!
