In the end, it always comes down to money.
An Article I wrote last year about Alexis Tsipras:
A Charismatic New World Leader Emerges and Takes Control of Greece
“His name is Alexis Tsipras, and it seems that he meets much of the criteria of the prophesied Antichrist He was just elected as the Prime Minister of Greece. He is an atheist and a far left winger. His party in Greece is called SYRIZA. He has appeared out of nowhere in the last couple of years, almost magically. He has landed himself in a most precarious situation. Greece is broken. Is he the one to fix it, and also the EU which is struggling and groping at almost anything to revive Europe? All eyes are on this man.”
The Plot Thickens
When Alexis Tsipras ran as his party’s (SYRIZA) candidate in Greece to become the P.M., he made it clear to his constituents that he was anti-Israel and very pro-Palestinian. Well it seems that he has done an about face for economic reasons. A politician not keeping his promises? I’m so shocked!
From I24 News:
When Alexis Tzipras was elected prime minister of Greece in January 2015, Israel watched the political shift closely. The victory of the radical, left wing pro-Palestinian Syriza party was considered bad news.
On his first visit to the region, Tzipras came to change that impression and show that Greece is still a friendly neighbor.
Meeting with the Israeli leadership, opening a two day tour in Jerusalem and Ramallah, Tzipras praised the importance of the relations between Israel and Greece and showed that the partnership has survived the political change.
While in Jerusalem for a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, Tsipras took an opportunity to sign the President’s guestbook, writing, ” With great honor to be in your historic capital and to meet your excellencies.”
Because of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict and dispute over Jerusalem, many countries refuse to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, much to Israel’s displeasure.
A former Israeli diplomatic official said that Tzipras’ reference to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was “unprecedented, especially for a European leader.”  – source
Israel’s New Found Wealth
In the last few years, Israel discovered an abundance of natural gas, and then found that they were sitting on oil rich fields. Most every nation on earth has declared that they are vehemently against Israel. Just watch a video of PM Netanyahu at the U.N. during his silent glare at those whom he said were determined to destroy his people. None of this is a coincidence.
Greece’s economy was close to a complete crash and burn; can you see why after finding out about Israel’s riches, that Tsipras would re-think his position on Israel?
I24 News goes on:
“Calling Greece a “friend of Israel,” Tsipras offered Greece’s help in facilitating negotiations between the two sides and reiterated the need for Israel to protect its citizens and its security.
During talks with Rivlin, Tsipras also addressed the global rise in terrorism saying “in the wake of European terror, we must send a message from here in Jerusalem that cooperation can banish extremism and hatred.”
Rivlin responded saying, “ISIS is not only in Syria and Iraq, but spreading to the whole western world, who must take responsibility and say that we cannot live in a world in which ISIS exists.”
Later Thursday Tsipras will travel to Ramallah to meet with President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas.” -source
Israel, Greece ’embrace the future’ of energy cooperation
Greece and Israel, two western democratic states in a very non-western and undemocratic region, share many mutual strategic interests and on Wednesday Tzipras and Netanyahu agreed to expand bilateral security cooperation.Money also talks, off course, as the natural gas discoveries in Israel, Cyprus and Egypt in recent years are a trigger for the creation new energy alliances in the eastern Mediterranean. Tzipras and Netanyahu agreed to hold a trilateral meeting with Cypriot president Nicos Anastasiades early next year to continue discussing further cooperation.
Natural gas fields were discovered in both Israeli and Cypriot waters, which has strengthened bilateral relations on cooperation and maritime security, including plans to develop a pipeline connecting Israeli gas fields to Cyprus and undersea power cables between Israel and Cyprus that could enable export to Europe. Anastasiades visited Israel earlier this month to discuss development of these gas fields.” -source
Brethren, the news just keeps getting more and more interesting – especially in light of Bible prophecy! We took a look at Alexis Tsipras as a possible candidate for Antichrist. Could it be that he is truly the one? Only God knows, and only time will tell.
Praise God that we (the Church) will not be here when this wicked one is revealed to the world. We will be with our Lord Jesus in heaven.
Hold on tightly to the Lord and to His Word! Share the Gospel with the lost!
Time is short.
