A result of President Trumps exhortation at the NATO Summit is that the European Union will move to build their own military

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: They were discussing a lot of things at the NATO meeting and President Trump pretty provocative in some of what he had to say was he not John?

JR: Certainly, there’s been a big concern from President Trump about the role in NATO particularly the financial contributions. The European hierarchy is very interested to keep the status quo and President Trump he’s very consistent at pointing out the inconsistencies. But now we see from the summit a conclusion, the European commission was instructed to increase by two percent their military spending to a total of four percent. But this actually plays into the hands of the European Union because of course their interest is to build a EU army. It was December of last year 25 of the 28 EU members they announced that they’ll participate jointly in military projects.

JD: Quite interesting during the summit the Russians were in the Mediterranean holding a Navy missile drill right at the same time of the summit. We’re all aware of the fact that NATO is actually established to protect the European Union from the threat of Russia.

JR: There’s a notable Russian military build up in Kaliningrad which is a Russian enclave that most people are not aware of. A enclave of Russia which is on the border between Poland and Lithuania completely cut off from the rest of Russia 300 miles away, 70 miles from Belarus. There’s been a very notable build up there and it appears that they’ve been fortifying the nuclear assets there.

JD: John Rood with the details on the NATO summit and President Trump’s exhortation to the military alliance.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

NATO the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was begun to protect the European Union from Russian aggression. Russia in our day has made a number of aggressive moves that may have been the motivation to strengthen NATO and expand its power base to hinder Russian aggression.

Now however, a number of European Union states are considering starting their own military operation which is a precursors to the revival of the Old Roman Empire as foretold in Daniel 7:7, Revelation 13:1 & 17:12. All of these prophecies are now ready to be fulfilled.
