German Involvement in the Holy Land

Comment on this article

Bible prophecy indicates that a German-led European “beast” power will have a military presence in the Holy Land at the end of the age. In fact, the Bible prophesies that non-Israelite (Gentile) nations will “trample” Jerusalem shortly before Christ’s return (Luke 21:24). How might a German-led European force become directly involved with Israel and Jerusalem in the future? The Bible seldom provides all the details of exactly how its prophecies will come to pass. But, with America urging Europe to handle more of its own defense needs, Germany has more recently become receptive to embracing new roles, which bears watching.

In May of this year, the Arab League put forth the “Manama Declaration,” proposing that the United Nations lead a military protection and peace-keeping force in Gaza and the Palestinian Territories until a two-state solution can be established (China Daily Global, June 4, 2024). A couple of weeks later, Germany’s foreign minister Annalena Baerbock noted, “If an international protection force is now needed to ensure that we finally achieve peace, that is also our mission,” clearly supporting German involvement in any future UN military peace-keeping force in the Palestinian Territories. Should such a scenario come to pass, Germany would be better positioned to more easily fulfill key end-time prophecies related to the Holy Land and the biblical “beast” power that will control Jerusalem and, ultimately, the Temple Mount.

Not only should Bible students watch the Middle East, they should also watch for a larger role for Germany in the Holy Land. To learn more, be sure to watch “2024 in Bible Prophecy.”
