Germany’s Chancellor Merkel continues to push for a stronger political union in the EU:
Merkel Pushes for Convention to Draft New EU Treaty
There were difficulties getting the Europeans to approve the Lisbon Treaty. It is likely that there will be difficulties in getting this one. But change to Europe is coming.
Deeper political integration is consistent with biblical prophecy. The Bible shows that Europe will have to have a major restructure for deeper political integration, and yet, despite certain appearances of unity it will not stick well together:
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)
41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. (Daniel 2:41-43)
The prophecies in both the books of Daniel (9:26-27; 11:20-44) and Revelation (13;17;18) point to a power that is to be based out of Europe (there are also European pointed prophecies in other books of the Bible, such as Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, etc.) that will fulfill many end-time prophecies.
The Bible shows that despite problems, Europe will have to reorganize and ultimately fulfill the prophecies in the Bible about being the final Beast power of Revelation, the final King of the North of Daniel 11. The fact that leaders such as Germany’s Chancellor Merkel are more and more publicly calling for European integration will help more and more set the stage for public acceptance of this in the future.
