What Is GERMANY'S DESTINY?

Germany stands today at the fulcrum of world decision. The dominant force of a third world power bloc of growing potential, Germany must act! Will her decision bring peace at last — or war?

   THE BERLIN situation is bogging down in the mire of international politics. The United States leader of the West — long ago lost the initiative! Yet this area still remains the most volatile, the most dangerous in all the earth — where a wrong move on the pare of either side might plunge this world into a consuming, nuclear hell!
   Whether pessimists or realists, millions of Americans are frantically financing fallout shelters — the general public beginning to be aware at last that war may come on our soil! Great Britain, finally aware of her threadbare economic condition, is ignominiously knocking on the door of the Common Market — seeking to join the "Inner Six."
   Yet, walking with confident stride through these fearful times is a booming and apparently boundless European economy dominated by German drive, initiative and leadership. The attempt to unify Europe as one economic, military and political power bloc restoring the "Holy Roman Empire," has been the one aim of all the "great" men who dominated European history from Napoleon's "Waterloo" until now.
   Mussolini, dominating Eritrea, Italian Somaliland, Libya, and conquering Ethiopia, did officially name his weak "Empire" the "Roman Empire."
   But now the dream of a mighty, powerful, resurrected Roman Empire at last is becoming a hard-driving reality.

More Than Success

   The present six nations of United Europe have succeeded in their aim far beyond the wildest dreams of the original signers of the Treaty of Rome. In far less time, at a far greater pace than anticipated, these nations of Europe have risen from the economic chaos of World War II to the dizzying heights of a standard of living never known to them before!
   With the present success well beyond the proportions of that expected three years ago, with a future success — in a world of peace — sure to produce a near — utopia, Western Europe is more concerned about war than any other economic and political entity on the face of this earth!
   "This is very probably the last year in which anyone except Europe will be able to negotiate with the Soviet Union for Europe!" (London Sunday Times). These nations are ENJOYING their economic recovery and they will let nothing stand in its way — they will stop at nothing to keep 'What they have, and, GO ON TO MORE! SO it is that a blueprint has been drawn up by the Six, that demands meetings among themselves to decide the MILITARY AND FOREIGN POLICY questions that come up regarding Europe!
   Realizing the power potential of this New Europe, our former Secretary of State, Christian Herter, says, "If the United States does not cooperate with the great new economic giant we will be isolated on this side of the Atlantic!" Understand the significance of this quote! Me. Herter is saying, in essence, that it is not we who are going to negotiate for Europe — economically or otherwise — but that we must negotiate WITH Europe, lest we find ourselves out in the cold.
   No nation or group of nations of the power and potential of today's Europe could think of letting ANOTHER power speak FOR IT!
   Realizing the timidity and inherent weakness of a United States policy of "wait and see," people everywhere in Europe — and especially in Germany — are questioning whether they ought to leave their future in the hands of what they consider to be the naive, uncultured, non-realist, gum-chewing Americans!
   Germany leads the rest of Europe in asking in its banner headlines "Is GERMANY NOW TO BE SOLD OUT?" Europeans in general, and Germans specifically, are beginning to fear that the UNITED STATES is going to make a "deal" with Russia!

The Set-Up

   Here's the age-old trick of human beings as individuals and as nations: Accuse the other fellow of planning to do what YOU are doing! Get the other fellow on the defensive. True to form, the United States of America will naively try to assure Germany that she has no intentions of betraying Germany in a "sell out" to Russia — that she does not plan to neutralize and demilitarize Western Europe or Germany. To sooth the ruffled feathers and hurt feelings, to assure our staunch allies that we are 'with them one hundred percent, America is now planning to add NUCLEAR MIGHT to the German arm!
   The United States is planning to sell Polaris Submarines — with nuclear missiles — to the West German government. The West German government has promised to pay for these submarines with American dollars — this will help the United States Cut its international payment deficit. In exchange the United States is giving West Germany more and new assurances that it will supply Bonn's army with nuclear delivery capability — Pershing Missiles!
   In our eager, youthful, naive, friendly American manner we applaud — never question, hesitate, wonder — when Germany launches the first of a new armada of "killer U-boats" for the West German Navy! We are overjoyed to hear that the West German government is helping co share in the COST in the "defense of the West" We are now the friends of Captain Otto Kretschmer, "The wolf of the Atlantic" who sank 250,000 tons of allied shipping during World War II, as he urges his crew of the U-1 to have that "traditional, famous U-boat spirit!"
   Editorials of praise are written in our press regarding a Germany who, fifteen years ago was the scourge of the earth, and yet now is our greatest ally, our "Bulwark against the East." "By virtue of its political strength and its economic dynamism, the United States of Europe can reshape the dangerous and unhealthy polarization of the world wherein all the power of decision — for good or ill — comes only from Moscow and Washington.
   "This should be welcome to the United States!" (Saturday Review, Nov. 4, '61.)
   We are convinced that nothing but good can come from our closer association with this dynamic new power! "Surely we in the United States are not going to neglect to do our part in carrying forward the tremendous momentum of the expanding European community which, through the Marshall Plan and NATO, we have done so much to help bring into being" (Saturday Review).

The Friendly Enemy

   In the years since the war we have changed our mind. In 1942 the word "German" was associated with atrocity, bombs, Fascist, enemy — everything German was considered war-like, cruel, treacherous! Now, somehow all this has been changed and the word "German," in 1961, brings with it, ally, partner-in-industry, Bulwark of the West — Germans are considered to be hard-working, intelligent, practical, progressive, brave!
   How has this whole nation changed in so short a time? Admittedly, these are fast-moving times in which we live. But, can a leopard change its spots, no matter how fast it moves?
   One case in point will show how the heroes of the Nazi era have lived through defeat and conquest to become the heroes of post-war Germany and of the West!
   Reinhard Gehlen, case history: A Prussian by birth, Gehlen was forced by tradition to be a professional soldier. He was only a junior officer in 1939 in a Panzer division invading Poland. But in 1940 he rose to the rank of Colonel, because — as we are cold now — the expanding Nazi military juggernaut needed experienced officers the really hated the Nazis, hated killing and intrigue, torture and death — BUT since the military juggernaut needed experienced officers, and he was indeed an experienced officer, he felt that it was his DUTY to serve in Hider's Blitzkrieg!)
   Through the years on the Eastern front, Herr Gehlen built an espionage and counter-espionage organization which included 5,000 men behind the Russian line and another 5,000 throughout Europe! In 1944, when most of the German General Staff realized the war was over, Gehlen suggested to Hitler that they pull back their forces on the Eastern front. Rebuked by Hitler, he was sent back to the Eastern front, with only one thought in mind — to prepare for his and Germany's defeat — and survival!
   He informed his agents to go underground and await his call. Then he took all of his maps and files, his intelligence reports and buried them in a cave in Southern Germany. He surrendered to the advancing American Army with dignity, was "de-nazified" by 1945 and in the summer of 1947 Allen Dulles offered Reinhard Gehlen a job, asking him to set up an espionage system to be paid for by the United States. To this request Gehlen gave a qualified yes. He agreed to work for the United States but DEMANDED not to be asked to "work against the German interest.'"
   Then, with American dollars backing him to the tune of more than six million dollars a year, Herr Gehlen signaled to his underground cohorts — "Resurrection in Frankfurt!
   During the following years the information furnished by his staff — so familiar with the Russians, having served on the Russian from during the war — became the BACKBONE OF AMERICAN WAR PLANS!
   In 1956 it was Gehlen who knew that there would be a revolt in Hungary, who promised the patriots arms, but the CIA never came through with his promise! Gehlen did all right — it was just another job that the CIA bungled! Proof was also obtained by Gehlen that Dr. Otto John, leader of a rival intelligence service also paid for by the CIA, was really a double agent working for the Communists!
   Now respectable, de-nazified, oriented with the West — Reinhard Gehlen is the CIA's trusted intelligence man in Western Europe! It does not seem co occur to our "intelligence" office that this Gehlen may be, as he discovered Dr. Otto John to be, a double agent also! We trust him even though he demanded never to be asked to work. against the German Interest!
   In 1962 Reinhard Gehlen is one of the greatest heroes in the West's fight against Communism — in 1942 Reinhard Gehlen was one of HITLER'S greatest heroes in the fight against Communism!

Germany De-Nazified?

   Where have all the millions who supported the Hider regime gone? Where are the millions of party members? Where are the hundreds of thousands of teachers who filled the minds of youth with Nazi ideology? Where are all the lawyers and judges, the policemen, the donors who were the intelligentsia of the Nazi regime? Where are all the SS men who performed the cruelties of the more than 300 concentration camps and annihilated six million Jews?
   Thousands of the SS and Hitler's top generals of the Wehrmacht are in today's Bundeswehr — Germany's modem army. The judges and policemen of Hitler's time are on the bench and in the streets. The doctors and teachers of Hitler's time are practicing their profession even more lucratively now in the healthy economy of Euromart! The party hacks, "old fighters," party members, and the general public enthusiastically sing "Deutschland Ueber Alles" in public rallies numbering from a few hundred to half a million EVERY WEEKEND in dozens of provincial German towns at reunions of one or another of the Panzer divisions, the SS formation, the Marine Bund or the Afrika Korps!
   At a rally of 500 in 1958, in the city of Munich, former SS Colonel Julius Zuchbold addressed his old Nazi cronies with this summation of the present German situation: "We do not intend to go to sleep. We will stay alert and exploit all rights and privileges which the democratic system offers to us. Yet we will be a power WHENEVER WE DECIDE TO BECOME A POWER!" (The New Germany and the Old Nazi, by T. H. Tetens, page 80.)
   Just as Gehlen's intelligence agents were asked to go underground and later brought out to apparently serve the West, every other phase of German activity has followed the same pattern.' The Krupps and the Flicks are back in German industry, the Hermann Abs and Robert Pferdmenges are back in German banking, Dr. Hans Globke, one of Hitler's chief assistants, is the right-hand man of Dr. Adenauer in the present German government!
   The situation is summed up by Mr. William L. Shirer — author of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich — stated in an address in Seattle on April 12, 1961, "The vast majority (in a poll taken in Germany) said that Nazism was a GOOD IDEA, only badly carried out. Their comment was that, 'It lost the war for us! The memory of Hiller is far from bad and far from dead."

German Destiny

   The emphasis of German propaganda today is w deny the war guilt "theory" — as they prefer to call it — to play down the atrocities of the Nazi regime, and to remind the Western world that it was German" who foresaw the Russian threat, and was defending Europe from being engulfed in Communism! they are succeeding in convincing us that they are the true defenders of the West against Communist aggression.
   Looking at it from the German point of view, "'You Americans made a bad mistake when you declared war on us,' said Corporal Franz Minnich, forgetting that it was Hider who declared war on {he United States. 'You should have marched with us against Russia. Germany would not be divided today, and you would be safe too.'" (Saturday Evening Post, August 20, 1960.)
   An active and organized German underground working in close concert with the Bonn government is fast taking the initiative from the hands of the Americans — who have ceased to use initiative at all since the Korean war — and is moving with that initiative coward the goal that they have envisioned historically as the destiny of the German people! As long ago as January 1960 Dr. Adenauer on a state visit to Italy told the Pope, "I believe that God has given the German people in these calamitous times a special task. We are the GUARDIANS OF THE WEST against any mighty force which would descend upon our lines from the East."
   De Gaulle, the only strong man in all of France, sees what seems to be hidden from American eyes in the behind-the-scenes activities of post-war Germany. "But it is not West Germany so much as the West Germans that must be tied to the West. If the West Germans lose hope in the ultimate reunification of Germany through Western efforts, THEY sooner or later will seek reunification by a deal with Russia!: (U.S. News and World Report, October 9, 1961). A Germany, sick of a weak and insipid, conciliatory strategy, led by the United States, is to the point where she must take matters into HER OWN HANDS, and fulfill her role of destiny and history.
   The U.S. News and World Report of Oct. 9. 1961 also said "intelligence sources report that five major papers prepared for the Soviet High Command stress the point that, with care on Russia's part and American mistakes, West Germany can be won over to the Soviet side. Stress was on the view that there can be a basis for accommodation."

History's Lesson

   The Father of Modern Germany, Prince von Bismarck, even before the beginning of this century, demanded of his Foreign Office on the Wilhelmstrasse to always remember his cardinal rule" Always keep the lines open to Petrograd" — The Russian capital of his day.
   In 1922 Germany completed the infamous Rapallo Treaty, making its Eastern border with Russia safe.
   Again in 1939, Hitler concluded his non-aggression pact with the Russians — still considered by the German people to be the wisest move that Hider ever made. Hitler was not the first to do so. Every conqueror in Europe, including Napoleon and Hider, had a working agreement with the Russians during the period of his success, One of the main turning points in the downfall of all these conquerors from Napoleon to Hitler was a breaking of {his Russian agreement — a premature attack to the East, a bad winter and consequent defeat!

Where Will Germany Go Now?

   The present leader of West Germany, Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, according to a UPI release of August 16, 1961, promised the Soviet Ambassador Andrei Smirnov that he would do nothing over the Berlin crisis that would worsen Bonn-Moscow relations, while the federal press office said that Smirnov "informed the Chancellor of the next plans of the Soviet government in the field of foreign affairs, and of the possible ways in which present relations between the Soviet Union and the Federal Republic could develop!"
   "There have been frequent hints in the Adenauer press that the Chancellor was pursuing a tremendously bold plan' of first consolidating a Un iced Europe and then turning to the East to make a deal with Moscow! The Chancellor is stubborn but he is a realist.. he follows the correct thesis of doing two things at the same time: namely to increase our strength by cooperation with the West, and not neglecting the other, to come to an AGREEMENT WITH THE EAST." (The New Germany and the Old Nazis, T. H. Tetens, p. 248). In 1955, when Dr. Adenauer had asked for his own invitation to Moscow and returned, he praised the Soviet Union as "an immense power that has to be accepted as a reality," and referred to its leaders saying, 'Bulganin and Khrushchev are melt whose words I FULLY TRUST!"

More Than United Europe

   "Fascism in Europe is about to be reborn in respectable business attire, and the Treaty of Rome will finally be implemented to its fullest extent.. the dream of a Holy Roman, Empire returning to power to dominate and direct the so-called forces of Christian mankind of the Western world is not dead, but still stalks through the antechambers of every national capital of continental Western Europe... IN THE DETERMINATION OF THE LEADERS IN THE COMMON MARKET NATIONS TO RESTORE THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE WITH ALL THAT THAT MEANS!" (Northwest Technocrat, Vol. XXV, No. 205.)
   United within the ancient boundaries of the Holy Roman Empire; united by the common spiritual bond of universal Catholicism; united in a burgeoning and booming industrial economy that dominates today's world; united geographically in the most productive and industrial complex of all the earth — at least TEN NATIONS OF MODERN EUROPE WILL MARCH ONTO THE SCENE OF WORLD HISTORY AS THE GREATEST SINGLE HUMAN FORCE EVER SEEN BY MAN!
   This United Europe will form a nonaggression pact or political alignment of some sort with the Soviet East. This United Europe will then consolidate its gains, flex its muscles and again attack the Russians in the East. This United Europe will be destroyed — but this time it will not be by a Russian winter, or by combined allied might — but by the ANGELIC ARMIES OF A RETURNING CHRIST COMING TO RESTORE PEACE AND ORDER AND TO RULE THIS EARTH WITH AN IRON ROD!

Bible Prophecy Reveals Future

   "There is a God in Heaven that reveals secrets, and makes known what shall be in the latter days!" (Dan. 2.28.) Khrushchev and his minions in the Soviet circle are planning and intriguing to conquer this world! They would like very much to know how it will all turn out! A European Nazi underground is also plotting and planning for world domination — they too would like to know how it will all come out!
   The pages of your Bible reveal the thrilling out come!
   God, speaking to modern-day Israel (the United States and Great Britain and the Democracies of Northwest Europe — if you do not understand the modern identity of Israel, write immediately for Mr. Armstrong's booklet, "The United States and the British Commonwealth in Prophecy ") — God says, "Hearken unto me O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from The belly, which are carried from the womb... Remember this, and show yourselves men: bring it again to mind O you transgressors. Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not, yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand and I will do all my pleasure: calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executes my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I WILL ALSO BRING IT TO PASS; I have purposed it, I WILL ALSO DO IT!" (Isa. 46:3, 8-11.)
   God, in His high heaven, is bringing to pass the prophecies He made thousands of years ago regarding the nations chat are struggling on the earth today! He has not gone far off somewhere, disinterested in human affairs, and only contemplating the Eternal thoughts of what is good and looking down on "His children," the blessed and benign, long white-haired old man as most picture God — stuck away in the corner of religion! But the Living Creator, the one that became Jesus Christ, the Son of God the Father, is VITALLY INTERESTED IN TODAY'S NATIONS — in Israel, the United States and Great Britain; in Germany at the head of a United Europe; and in the Soviet Empire! The true God of creation sits on the circle of the earth, intervening from time to time as He needs to, to BRING to pass these prophecies He declared would be fulfilled in this end time!

God Works Directly With His People

   Since the time of the exodus from Egypt, God has been pleading with His people Israel, and they have been rebelling against Him, murmuring and complaining over the blessings that He has showered them with, rebelling and refusing to keep His just laws, statutes, and commandments or obey Him in any way! As a result of this they were denied the fulfillment of the promises made to Abraham for twenty-five hundred and twenty years, and it was not until the turn of the nineteenth century (1803) that God began to fulfill to the modern descendants of ancient Israel the promises He made to Abraham! Great national wealth and power, blessings of every kind imaginable, were given to the modern descendants of Jacob — until they became and still are the chief of the nations on this earth in standard of living, wealth and national power!
   Just as God sent ancient Israel into captivity for disobeying His laws and refusing to recognize Him as the Cream! and Ruler, so God now accuses modern Israel, the United States and Great Britain, of not recognizing Him or living by His laws — and condemns them to captivity and conquest in the hands of a modern and united Europe! As God explains in Psalm 33, "The lord brings the counsel of the heathen to nought: He makes the devices of the people of none effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations... from the place of His habitation He looks upon all the inhabitants of the earth... There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength!" Psalm 33:10, 11, 14, 16.) IT IS THE GOD OF HEAVEN WHO WILL GAIN THE VICTORY!
   Modern Europe is counseling and making treaties and alliances and agreements to conquer this earth! The Communists on the other hand are piercing and conniving for their own part to rule this world! But the one who will achieve victory and finally conquer and rule this earth is neither of them, but the Jesus Christ of your Bible returning to this earth as its ultimate ruler — its KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS!
   He is the same One who explains what will happen in this modern situation with a United Europe, a United Scares and a Soviet Empire! Anciently, God used the nation of Israel to punish the inhabitants of the land of Canaan for their sins! The whole nation of Israel became a SWORD in the hand of God to bring His vengeance and execution upon the sons of men who had sinned against Him! Then, the same nation that He used to execute His judgment, rebelled against His rule and went contrary to His ways. They have gone contrary to His ways for thousands of years despite His blessings and despite His warnings! Now, at the close of man's rime of trial on this earth, God solemnly warns His people Israel that He is going to punish them, and execute judgment upon THEM.
   As God of the entire universe — a Being to whom all the nations of this earth are but dust on a balance, and a drop of water in a bucket — God is able at any time to use any nation for any purpose that He wishes!
   If you were God, and the nation of Israel had rebelled against you, and you wished to punish them for that rebellion — and you were going to use another nation as a rod in your hand to punish them — what nation would you pick? What nation would be best equipped to deal the crushing blow, that would grind us under its heel in cruel oppression until we turned our hearts to God and asked Him to forgive us for our sins, and asked Him to save us?
   The nation God picked was Germany!
   Just as the modern nations of the United States and Great Britain are referred to in the Bible as Israel, so the modern nation of Germany is referred co as ancient Assyria! (Please read our article "Germany in Prophecy," explaining Assyria's modern identity.)
   "O Assyrian, the rod of MINE anger, and the staff in their hand is MINE indignation. I WILL SEND HIM against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath (rebellious Israel) will I give him a charge (command), to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets" (Isa. 10:5, 6).
   Yes, God is going to take the nation of Germany at the head of a United Europe into his hand as a club to punish the nations of Israel for their rebellion against Him! "Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither does his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few" (vs. 7). Germany, those living in Germany, even the German government, may not yet know that they are going to join in a treaty with the Russians to destroy the United States and bring it to its knees — it is not in his "heart" to think so, but on the other hand it IS in his "heart" to destroy — the very characteristic of the Assyrian, the modern German, is a harsh, cruel, iron dedication to militarism. and destruction! This is just the kind of nation God needs to use as a rod in His hand to punish His people!
   Does this then mean that the Germans at the head of a United Europe do have a spiritual mission to perform? Does this mean that they are right in claiming to be the "Defenders of the West" and the champions of Christianity!? No!

God's Destiny for Germany

   Despite the face char it is God who will use Germany to destroy America, Germany must be destroyed as well for HER rebellion against God — "I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks. For he saith, by the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent!" (Isa. 10:12, 13)
   The leaders of a United Europe, when they succeed against the United States, will begin to think THEIR prudent planning, THEIR wise ideas and THEIR powerful might have made them successful! They will not realize that they have only been used as a base tool of destruction in the hand of the Almighty God! "Shall the axe boast itself against him that hews therewith? Or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shaketh it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that life it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood" (Isa. 10:15). God explains here that despite the fact that He has used Assyria to punish Israel, Assyria is also rebellious against His law and government, His way, and since it will magnify itself against the very God of creation, as Dan. 11: 36 and 37 explain, GOD WILL HAVE TO PUNISH IT FOR THIS!
   So GOD says, "The Lord of hosts has sworn. saying, Surely as I have thought, so SHALL IT COME TO PASS: and as I have purposed, so SHALL IT STAND; That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains TREAD HIM UNDER FOOT: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their (the Israelites) shoulders" (Isa. 14:24, 25). Just shortly before Jesus Christ Himself intervenes in this world's affairs. He will take another nation as a punishing club in His hands and punish the proud Assyrians, the modern Germans at the head of the United States of Europe. "Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold they shall not delight in it (Here the Communist system is described, which does not believe in capitalism and exercises only a lust for power). Their bows also shall dash the young men co pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children. And Babylon (the modern resurrected and revived Roman Empire, dominated by a fascist Germany), the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah!" (Isa. 13:17-19.)
   God warns us, "Put not your trust in Princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help! His breach goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. HAPPY is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, WHOSE HOPE IS IN THE LORD HIS GOD: which made heaven and earth, the sea and all that therein is!" (Psalm 146:3-6.)

Who Can You Trust?

   It must be very evident to the minds of thinking men today that you CANNOT TRUST the Communists nor Communism! God is going to bury this system! (Ezek. 38, 39). In God's eyes, the thriving. bustling Commonwealth of Europe is a system in which man should not put his trust either! God will bring an end to this also! Since God himself has pronounced a curse on modern Israel, and is going to hand us over to the Assyrians, it is evident that we CANNOT TRUST in the American way of life either!
   Nothing is left outside these three great systems and powers on earth, under man, except Anarchy!
   MAN'S ONLY HOPE LIES IN TURNING TO HIS CREATOR GOD!
   "At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom. to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, TURN FROM THEIR EVIL, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them... Behold, I frame evil against YOU, and devise a device against YOU: ·return ye now EVERY ONE from his evil way and make your ways and your doings good!" (Jer. 18:7, 8, 11)
   The case of America and Great Britain is hopeless!
   Nothing can save them from the hand of punishment from their God! The hope of the German, and a United Europe is equally hopeless, they are deceived and vainly puffed up in their own eyes — they will not repent and turn to God! Certainly the hope of the Communist is most hopeless of all! How can he turn to God who denies His existence!?
   YOUR only hope as an individual is to rum to God — to the Living Creator who is working our events here below on this earth — who is very concerned about YOU, who promises you safety from these horrible rimes to come! Heed the warning given by Jeremiah! The only 'Way to escape these sure prophecies of God is by REPENTANCE nationally or individually!
