1630 Depiction of Beasts of Daniel 7
EU foreign ministers want a super-president with more power:
Ministers ponder creation of EU super-presidentEUobserver - April 20, 2012
Ideas kicking around in a reflection group of select EU foreign ministers include merging the roles of the EU Council and European Commission presidents.A senior EU source told this website following a meeting of the club in the Val Duchesse stately home in Brussels on Thursday (19 April) that the new supremo would have more power than either Herman Van Rompuy or Jose Manuel Barroso do today but also more “democratic legitimacy” because he or she would be elected by MEPs. http://euobserver.com/18/115965
And this request for giving more power to Europe’s top leader is consistent with biblical prophecies about the Beast and final King of the North. Eventually, a lot more power will be given to the top European leader.
The Bible, in Revelation 17, is clear that the Europeans will reorganize in the future and given more of their power to a central authority:
12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. (Revelation 17:12-13)
More and more we are hearing calls that are consistent with that prophecy. Steps towards this happening are continuing as we in the Living Church of God have long taught–and there will be bumps in the road and problems (major civil unrest, or worse, may occur and Europe will always have unity issues per Daniel 2:41-43).
According to Bible prophecy, a European power, despite its fragility, is destined to temporarily be the most dominant force in the world. And ultimately, its leader, the final King of the North, will conquer the Anglo-descended nations (Daniel 11:39), and later come to his end (Daniel 11:45).
More leaders in Europe are starting to advocate a stronger European union, with a more powerful leader, publicly. Bible prophecy will come to pass and today’s announcement is consistent with Revelation 17:12-13, though not enough to actually fulfill it.
