“Germany may be America’s most important European ally, but the relationship between the two countries is on the rocks” following the discovery of a CIA spy in Berlin. This is just one more nail in the coffin of German-American relations following the Snowden leaks (CNN, July 11, 2014). “The New York Times soberly noted that German-American relations have reached their low point with the expulsion of the CIA’s representative from Berlin. Experts on Germany in Washington view the events more dramatically: President Obama, they fear, is on the verge of losing Germany” (Deutsche Welle, July 11, 2014). Relations between Germany and the U.S. appear to be growing worse by the day.
Bible prophecies have long warned that due to the sins of the Israelite nations—especially the descendants of the sons of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh—Britain and America), God will cause their “lovers” (allies) to turn against them (see Jeremiah 30:14; Ezekiel 16:37; 23:22). In light of these prophecies, it is sobering to see the rift and lack of trust that is developing today between America and Germany.
