Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The European Union has made history with the election of its leaders for the future and has moved closer to a role in Bible prophecy as it relates to the end of days.
On March 25, 1957, the Treaty of Rome was signed in the seven hilled city of Rome to form the European Common Market. Now, over 50 years later, the Lisbon Treaty has been ratified and in accordance with the treaty, the member states of the European Union has elected the two most important leaders to take this United States of Europe into the future. History has been made with the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty and the election of these two leaders.
However, this history making event is setting the stage for Bible prophecy found in the book of Daniel to be fulfilled. The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel prewrote history about the revival of the Old Roman Empire (Daniel 2:40-45; 7:7 and 24). This prophetic scenario reveals the revival of the Old Roman Empire with a leader to take this political economic entity into the future. With the merger of the 17 member states of the Mediterranean Union to the 27 member states of the European Union, you have the exact same borders as the Old Roman Empire in place.
The European Union may or may not be the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, but for sure, the infrastructure for the Revived Roman Empire is in place today - ready to have the world witness the fulfillment of Bible prophecy in a future tomorrow.
