Germany, Land of Opportunity

Comment on this article

“In the rankings of the globe’s most prosperous countries, this economic powerhouse of 82 million has now leapfrogged Canada, Britain, Italy and Spain to become the largest destination for immigrants after the United States… Because of a morbidly low birthrate, the population here is shrinking, raising the pivotal question of who will keep the massive German economy humming in the years ahead” (Washington Post, July 27, 2014). “But the latest upsurge [in immigration] is largely based on Germany’s reemergence in recent years as Europe’s undisputed economic leader, a beacon of light on a continent still suffering from the aftermath of a brutal debt crisis… And with unemployment at 25.1 percent in Spain, 26.6 percent in Greece, and 12.6 percent in Italy, Germany—with an economy built on industrial giants such as Siemens and an army of innovative small and midsize companies—has never looked so good,” especially Berlin (ibid.). 

Bible prophecy reveals that at the end of the age, the German-led European Beast power will be the “marvel” of the world (Revelation 13:3-4) and will usher in a time of prosperity and opportunity for Europe and the peoples of the world for a short time (Revelation 18:1-3).
