In the short video clip (hopefully) viewable above, one Patrick Young, a financial expert, gives his opinion on whether or not Greece will exit the European Union (EU). The video was uploaded to YouTube on June 28, 2015, before the surprising results of the referendum in Greece of July 5th became known. At the time Patrick Young gave his forecast via the Russia Today news network, opinion polls indicated the Greeks would vote to accept further austerity measures. So the fact that Young predicted a Greek exit from EU at a time when opinion polls indicated surrender to further austerity has extra significance.
Now, after the Fifth of July referendum, a Greek exit, or “Grexit” as it is called, seems more likely than it did when Patrick Young made his prediction.
The Patrick Young prediction of Grexit is one of the puzzle pieces for the sudoku problem of what will happen between Greece and the EU in their current “High Noon” showdown. The showdown culminates on Sunday, July 12, according to an Associated Press report. Eurozone leaders have given both sides the deadline of a “final summit” on Sunday to stave off “collapse” of Greece. 
I call the possible Grexit situation a “sudoku problem” to indicate its mathematical nature. We have both known and unknown quantities. This is typical of math problems, where you know “X” and must solve for “Y”.
However the difficulty in mathematicizing the Grexit puzzle is that the ground keeps shifting. New variables keep being introduced. So, for example, you have German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande immediately saying they respect the Greek people’s vote of July 5th , and then proceeding as if they do not in fact respect it. No yielding on the question of austerity measures has been “respectfully” offered to Greece.
Some of the puzzle pieces can at least be gathered into today’s blog entry. But attempts to solve for “X” or “Y” are thwarted by continual introduction of new variables.
“Mark of the Beast” is one of the puzzle pieces.
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. (Revelation 12: 3)
Some Biblical interpretations have the “ten horns” meaning “ten nations”. These ultimately are the final member nations of the European Union. (Other interpretations of the Book of Revelation exist, however.) There are currently 19 (or 18, depending on your source) member nations of the EU. Ultimately, in some interpretations, 9 (or 8) member nations will be leaving the European Union. An article published by the Philadelphia Trumpet in 2011 is still relevant today. “Germany will use this crisis to force Europe to unite more tightly,” wrote Gerald Flurry. “In the process, some eurozone countries will be forced out of the union. When that happens, the pundits will say European unification is dead, that the European Union has failed. Don’t listen to them!” 
Another of the puzzle pieces is called by me, “New Jerusalem.”
And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God. (Revelation 21: 10)
On July 7, 2015, the Houston Chronicle reported upon a UFO in the form of a black cube. Some people are going haywire over this cube-shaped UFO seen in the Texas sky. However Fletcher Gray, the head Texas investigator for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), said he believes the video is a “computer generated image,” or CGI. 
Given that this cube-shaped UFO has not been verified, it is worth remembering however that the holy Jerusalem descending out of heaven is described in Revelation 21: 16 as being “foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth…”
Other puzzle pieces in this ever-shifting environment include China’s market crash and the Wall Street electronic “glitch” of July 8, 2015. “The ongoing fall of the Chinese stock market, despite strenuous efforts by government and financial authorities to bring it to a halt, has major economic and political implications, both within China and globally,” reports the World Socialist Web Site.  And then yesterday, in the midst of a sell-off triggered by the ongoing plunge on Chinese markets and the looming default of Greece, the New York Stock Exchange halted trading for nearly four hours. “Suspicions and alarm over the NYSE shutdown were increased by the fact that two other major disruptions occurred at around the same time on Wednesday.” United Airlines experienced a “network connectivity issue” and the Wall Street Journal‘s web site went down at about the same time the NYSE halted its operations. 
There is also the interesting coincidence of possible Grexit occurring in tandem with Frankfurt’s Euro sculpture being given a “facelift.” The 50-ton sculpture is being dismantled and renovated.
