As America abdicates its international leadership role, no other nation appears ready to fill the void. The article notes, “Europe isn’t in a position to provide decisive leadership. And the US doesn’t want to anymore” (ibid.).
Bible prophecies foresaw this very situation long ago. Isaiah prophesied that at the end of the age, God would take away strong and capable leaders from among His people and that children (childish, immature, impulsive individuals) would get into leadership positions (Isaiah 3:1-12).
Today, the world needs and craves strong, capable, visionary leadership. Bible prophecies reveal that a charismatic individual will step into this leadership vacuum. This leader will emerge from the German-led, end-time Beast power that will arise in Europe and be backed by the Roman church (Revelation 17:1-6).
