How many are watching the EU?
Looks like another prophecy is about to be fulfilled....
Well...don't keep us less biblically literate folks in suspense! Shower me with the prophetic references to Rome.
I will sit on the sidelines for now.
And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten crowns, and on his heads were blasphemous names. Revelation 13:1
Many believe that this beast will be a rebirth of the Roman Empire and that;
the 7 heads represents the 7 hills of Rome;
the 10 horns represents the 10 permanent member states of todays European Union and the MILITARY arm of the EU;
and the Ten crowns represents the leaders of the ten permanent member countries.
The motto of the UN is "United in Diversity" which many Christians see as being blasphemous as it puts all religions (paganism, Islam, etc.) on an even par with Christianity.
Revelation 17:12-13, "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast."
The ten kings [leaders] whom the horns represent will give their power and strength to the Beast from the Sea. The crown is an emblem of power and strength.
Now, the EU is planning on signing the EU Constitution in Rome. Therefore, those that read the Gospels will most likely (and probably appropriately) see this as the re-birth of the Roman Empire as prophesied in the Bible.
I certainly hope America is doing its part to fulfill prophecy. I would hate to piss off god.
Frankly, America (or really, any reference to America or anthing that could be construed as America) is referenced in the Bible.
Many believe that is because either we will have fallen into an isolationist mentality or we will have already been handed a defeating blow that takes us out of the picture.
More to follow later, my wife (she is the boss around here) needs the puter!
Hmm, when it comes to prophecy via Man's interpretation of god and Tocqueville, I'll take Toc. See end of book 1, last 10 paragraphs.
