In an incredibly powerful interview, today MEP (Member European Parliament) Nigel Farage told King World News, “They even want to get eurozone countries to change their constitutions, to write in their constitutions that they will obey all orders from Brussels.” Farage also warned “So it is very, very difficult to ignore those voices who have been telling me for 20 years that behind all of this there are a group of people that want to create a one world government … it’s beginning to stare us in the face.”

Relevant verses from a historicist perspective:
Revelation 16:13-16: And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
Revelation 17:12-14: And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
Italy’s Catholic Church will be forced to pay taxes starting in 2013 after the EU pressured the country’s government to pass a controversial law stripping the Church of its historic property tax exemption.
The Catholic Church in Italy is excluded from paying taxes on its land if at least a part of a Church property is used non-commercially – for instance, a chapel in a bed-and-breakfast.

Relevant Scripture from a historicist perspective:
Revelation 17:12-17 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon [a primarily spiritual battle against biblical Christianity acted out on earth through political and judicial decisions, employment conditions, social and cultural hostility towards biblical Christians, etc.].
And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great [earthquake = prophetic language for a drastic change or upheaval in the social, political, religious, and/or economic order].
And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell:…[quite possibly a global economic collapse]

Here is an interesting video series from Calvinism is Christianity: “History the Pope Hopes You Never Learn.”
A partial summary of the series:
Today’s public school teachers want your children to learn a specific history. It is not the same history taught to our fathers. Quite a lot of changes have been made in this new history. Quite a lot of omissions have also taken place. As a result, critical components of history have not been learned by the average American child.
American Children no longer know why it is important to remember the Alamo. They no longer know the causes of the French And Indian War. They no longer know who the Puritans were, and why they wanted to be free. They no longer know why it is important for American citizens to own guns–and to know how to use them. They no longer know of the Protestants who were murdered in America, for simply believing that the Bible alone is the Word of God. And, because our children have been dumbed down by our public schools, video games, and television–they no longer want to know!
Today’s history teachers are selected by individuals who want a specific history taught to the public. They have reasons for teaching this history. They have an agenda.

Here is a list of mass animal deaths that occurred in the year of our Lord, 2012, from End Times Prophecy:
Nine Days a Queen, A Martyr Forever
Although her reign was brief and the end of her life tragic, Lady Jane Grey remains one of the most beloved and honored figures of the Reformation. When executed at the Tower of London, young Jane was only seventeen. Yet, her passionate faith and remarkable courage remain an inspiring testimony to all the sons and daughters of the Reformation.
Born in 1537, during the reign of Henry VIII, Lady Jane’s early life was one of quiet study. Henry VIII’s marriage to Jane Seymour had produced the son he had hoped for, and so the Tudor dynasty would continue through the person of young Edward, Jane Grey’s childhood friend. When Henry died, Edward was crowned Edward VI at the tender age of nine.
Edward, a hale and athletic boy, loved hunting and jousting as a youth, but his life changed suddenly when he was taken ill with a debilitating sickness that would soon claim his life. His two half sisters, Mary and Elizabeth, stood next in line to succeed him on the throne. The situation was complicated not only because both Mary’s mother had been divorced by, and Elizabeth’s mother had been executed by, Henry, but Mary was a Roman Catholic.

As the Second Reformation was taking hold in Scotland (1641), Papal forces launched a vicious counter-attack, aimed at destroying all the Protestants in nearby Ireland. The following is an account of this brutal (yet largely forgotten) incident, excerpted from Andrew Stevenson’s History of the Church of Scotland (1753), as quoted in J.R. Willson’s History of the Reformed Presbyterian Church (Albany Quarterly, 1832-1833). I had thought to include a sketch depicting this event, but all the images I found were far too gruesome to post here.
