Relevant verses from a historicist perspective, quoted from the above-mentioned page:
“The Bible tells us that the kings of the earth will gather together against God Almighty and his anointed Jesus Christ to do battle. This is found in 3 separate places in scripture so there can be no mistake as to what will happen.
 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.
 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.”
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.”

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 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.
