Are We Seeing The Birth Of The 4th Reich?

So what is a Reich? Let’s take some time to see who and what makes up the Reich.  The German name Reich means “realm” when used as a noun, or literally the realm of an emperor or king in reference to an empire or kingdom. The term Deutsches Reich (sometimes translated to “German Empire”) continued to be used even after the collapse of the German Empire and the abolition of the monarchy in 1918. There was no emperor, but many Germans had imperialistic ambitions according to Richard J. Evans. The continued use of the term “German Empire”, Deutsches Reich, by the Weimar Republic … conjured up an image among educated Germans that resonated far beyond the institutional structures Bismarck created: the successor to the Roman Empire; the vision of God’s Empire here on earth; the universality of its claim and in a more prosaic but no less powerful sense, the concept of a German state that would include all German speakers in central Europe—”one People, one Reich, one Leader”, as the Nazi slogan was chanted. The unified Germany which arose under Chancellor Otto von Bismarck in 1871 was the first entity that was officially called in German Deutsches Reich. Deutsches Reich remained the official name of Germany until 1945, although these years saw three very different political systems more commonly referred to in English as: “the German Empire” (1871–1918), the Weimar Republic (1919–1933; this term is a post-World War II coinage not used at the time), and Nazi Germany (1933–1945). In our series on the “Sins of our Forefathers” we see that even the pope gave his blessings to Hitler as he thought that he may bring about the return of the Roman Empire.

Tomorrow’s World put out an article written by Douglas S. Winnail that tells the history of the German people, and how their history could lead us into the 4th Reich. We won’t go into all the past history of the German people but here are a few quotes. “But what accounts for Germany’s tendency to undergo dramatic transformations in national character? Why did so many Germans accept the “master race” concept and the destructive policies of Hitler’s Third Reich? Part of the answer is found in the cultural history of Germany. It has been said that the character of individuals and nations determines their destiny. A nation’s character is molded by the religious and philosophical ideas of its people (ibid., pp. xxiv–xxvii). Ideas and ideologies have influenced cultural and political events in Germany “perhaps more than in any other nation in Europe” (ibid., p. xxvi).

A powerful mixture of ideas, traditions and opportunities appears to merge in the lives of individuals who have molded German history. The German lands were part of the territories Charlemagne conquered in his attempt to reassemble the Roman Empire. Charlemagne was a powerful warrior with a powerful idea. That same idea of uniting Europe under the banner of Christendom burned in the hearts of the first German emperors of the Holy Roman Empire: Otto the Great and Frederick Barbarossa (Frederick I of Hohenstauffen—proclaimed “master of the world”). Under these strong warriors, the Germans became the most powerful kingdom in all Europe (960–1150 CE). In the early 1700s, Frederick William I of Prussia revived the militaristic course of modern Germany. Following his Hohenzollern family tradition that land and military strength were keys to national power, he set out to build the strongest and best-trained army in Europe. When he died, Prussia was recognized as the most thoroughly militarized power in Europe and one of the most self-sufficient and prosperous.

The Prussian militaristic tradition begun by the Hohenzollerns eventually permeated all of Germany. Following Napoleon’s defeat of Prussia, the Prussian Army was reorganized. Gerhard von Scharnhorst, a brilliant theorist and organizer, established military academies, built a new type of army, and laid the groundwork for what became the great German General Staff. This group of professional soldiers planned for war even in times of peace, and prepared future generations of officers. Under Scharnhorst’s direction, the entire population of Prussia was indoctrinated into the purpose and glories of war. It was this Prussian tradition—authoritarian, anti-democratic, militaristic and expansionistic—that paved the way for the rise of Imperial Germany, the Nazis, and the military adventures, atrocities and disasters of the Third Reich. Both Assyria and Germany stand unique in history for exactly the same reasons: thoroughly militarized societies, the glorification of war, brutally efficient armies, deliberately calculated acts of extreme cruelty, mass deportations, slave labor camps, and genocide—all centrally administered with incredible efficiency. The histories of both nations reveal periods of powerful military resurgence after periods of decline. These parallels are striking and unique in the story of human civilization! Some historians have described the Assyrians as the “Prussians of the Ancient World” (The Ideal and Destiny, McCulloch, p. 224), submissive to centralized authority, with a “deep rooted feeling of superiority”—the idea of being a “master race” (Mass Deportations and Deportees in the Neo-Assyrian Empire, Obed, p. 89). The Assyrians were extremely nationalistic, with “a strong sense of participating in a common and native way of life” (ibid., p. 66)—similar to the German idea of a volk or a people. After the fall of the Assyrian Empire, the Roman historian Pliny mentioned a tribe of the “Assyriani” among the Scythian peoples in the Crimea north of the Black Sea (Natural History, Bk IV. XII. 81). The historian Jerome, writing in the 4th century AD, said that the “descendents of Assur” were among the Celto-Scythian-Hun hordes then invading Europe (Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Jerome Letter 123, section 16). Researcher Leon Poliakov notes the ancient Bavarian account that the people of Bavaria came into central Europe from the region of Armenia by the Black Sea (The Aryan Myth, p. 76). Considering this information, it is not surprising to find medieval Arab writers describing the Germans as “Assyrians” (Israelites und Hyksos, Germol, pp. 89–90). The links between Germany and Assyria can be found, and are neither far-fetched nor imagined. Just what is the significance of the striking parallels between ancient Assyria and Germany? Numerous Bible prophecies clearly indicate that at the end of this age, just before the return of Jesus Christ, Assyria will once again play a pivotal role in world affairs (see Isaiah 10; 11). Yet, when the Medes, Babylonians and Scythians conquered Assyria in 612 bc, its ruling class scattered to the north, east and west, leaving behind the conquered peoples the Assyrians had imported to work as laborers (White, p. 15). Some of those polyglot peoples are found today in Iraq, Syria and the Caucasus. The Assyrian nation ceased to exist, but history and prophecy confirm that its cultural heritage can be traced to the modern nation of Germany. When the Bible speaks of Assyria in the end times, it is speaking of Germany. No other modern nation fits the description so completely. Germany’s return to power in the years since World War II is no accident. God prophesied more than 2,500 years ago that He would bring certain events to pass to accomplish His purpose (Isaiah 46:9–10; Revelation 17:17). Germany is again the leading player in the effort to unite the nations of Europe. Events now underway in Europe will lead to the long-prophesied ten-nation beast power that will again rise out of the ashes of the Roman Empire  (Revelation 17:9–14).

The Bible shows that Germany will again use religion to help forge a unified European power (Revelation 13; 17:1–7), much as was done under Charlemagne. This emerging configuration will become a global economic power (Revelation 18:2–3, 9–14) and will use that power for political purposes. It will appear peaceful at first, but will be transformed into a devouring, war-making beast (Daniel 11:21; Revelation 13:2–3; Revelation 17:12–14). Daniel describes this end-time kingdom as a strong and ferocious beast with “iron teeth,” which Christ will conquer and punish at His return (Daniel 2:40–45; 7:7, 19–23). Yet, amazing as it may seem, Bible prophecy also indicates that God will eventually use Assyria—the remarkable German people—as a leading nation for peace in the coming Kingdom of God (Isaiah 19:23–25). God will use the outstanding intellectual and cultural strengths of the German people to help enrich the world during the coming millennial rule of Jesus Christ. As do all peoples of the earth, the Germans have in their national character both strengths and weaknesses. Just as God will use the modern descendants of Assyria to fulfill end-time prophecy in the years ahead, in Tomorrow’s World He will use the remarkable strengths of the German people to serve their fellow human beings!

But how do we see this today? The 3rd Reich under Adolph Hitler brought about a great genocide of the Jewish people. Their brutality against these people was only because of Hitler’s hatred. He wanted a perfect society with his man made religion and his one world government and was going to rule his kingdom. Yes, as 1 John 2:18 tells us, “ Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared. From this we know that it is the last hour.”  

The antichrist is going to go after God’s people, Jew and Gentile, and we saw this even at the time of Nero. Today we are hearing from tens of thousands of people around the world that Israel must be destroyed. Never before has Israel had so many enemies as today. We saw the death of babies being burned to death and their heads cut off and all kinds of atrocities done to men and women, young and old and yet, people cry out death to Israel, and they cheer these barbaric actions. It is like when they cried out in the days of the ‘Circus Maximus,’  when the believers were being thrown to the lions. You must realize that many of the believers were Jewish.  These people are Nazi Sympathizers, Pro Fascist, Anti God and they have the spirit of antichrist.  This is the 4th Reich, the return of the Roman Empire. The fulfillment of Hitler’s dream is taking shape and it will lead us to the next and final antichrist who will rise up and he will lead his followers forward. A people whom Hilter would have considered the perfect race, even though they will not all be German people.  This antichrist will also get the Pope’s blessing as Revelation 13 gives us all the details. Today as you read this, the world’s leaders have gathered together and already they have laid the foundation to this one world government and they have begun to implement it all over the world. Who will be the one who will rise up and lead this new world?
