Prophecy: History Will Repeat Itself in France

by | Nov 12, 2020 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

I heard the Lord say, “History will repeat itself in France.”

These words come in the wake of an uproar in the European nation and several murders, including a beheading of a middle school teacher in a Paris suburb, a knife attack on three people at a Nice church that left three dead.

France’s President Emmanuel Macron calls the incidents “Islamist terrorist attacks.” Last Thursday, Macron announced he was more than doubling the number of soldiers deployed in the country to protect against attacks, sending 7,000 to guard schools and religious sites, according to USA Today.

The attacks are connected to a French satirical newspaper named Charlie Hebdo and its cartoons of Islam’s founder Muhammed. The beheaded teacher had shown the offensive cartoon to students. Five years ago, Charlie Hebdo was firebombed in an attack that killed six staff members, but the newspaper is intent on sharing its ideals about the Islamic extremism.

The Prophesied Rise of Islamic Violence

On New Year’s Eve 2019, I prophesied into 2020: “Radical Islamists will push for power through violence, which is nothing new, but more horrifying violence is planned.” We are seeing this horrifying violence play out in France right now, at least the first fruits of it.

To combat this quest for extremist power, Macron launched a campaign against political Islam and what he calls Islamist “separatism” in some French cities, according to the Financial Times.

“The republic must keep its promises; we must fight against discrimination; we must put meritocracy everywhere,” he said. “But on the other side we must fight against separatism, because when the republic does not keep its promises, others try to replace it.”

Islamic separatism, as he sees it, works to form a counter-society in France. A counter society is one that reject or oppose the dominant values and behavior of mainstream society. This is troubling as France has the largest population of Muslims in Western Europe.

Amid concerns from Muslims that France is trying to control its their faith, Macron’s campaign includes restrictions on imams being sent to France from abroad, monitoring organizations that could be a front for extreme Islamist teaching and more oversight into foreign financing of mosques.

What Kind of History Will Repeat Itself?

It is against this backdrop that I heard the Lord say, “History will repeat itself in France.” So the question is, which history will repeat itself? What does God want? {eoa}
