EU Planning on Increased Military Cooperation

12 Star Flag of Europe

We in the Living Church of God teach that there will be a militaristic future leader of Europe that the Bible calls the King of the North or the Beast.

Because the European Union does not have what appears to be the biblically-required military strength it needs (Revelation 13:4) yet, I have been confident that contrary to the claims of false prophets such as Ronald Weinland, that the great tribulation cannot occur in 2008 (some additional details are also in the news item At Least Two Wrongly Claim Great Tribulation Will Begin in 2008).

However, this does not mean that the end is not near.  Only that a few more years are apparently still left.

Notice the following news item:

EUobserver – Feb 15, 2008

French president Nicolas Sarkozy is spearheading an initiative to create an elite defence force made up of the six EU biggest states – France, Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy and Poland.French MP French MP Pierre Lellouche, a spokesman on defence for Mr Sarkozy recently presented the idea and conditions for countries to join the defence “hard core” group in the French daily Le Figaro.It is envisaged that the six countries would adopt common rules for reinforced co-operation…Moreover, the elite group would commit to carry out joint security anti-terrorism projects, as well as defence infrastructure programmes, such as missile defence or space and intelligence technology.According to the Brussels weekly European Voice, Paris aims to launch the initiative in 2009, after the new EU Lisbon treaty has been ratified in all member states, as it contains a provision for “permanent structured co-operation” which could establish a legal link for the core defence project to be set up.

Notice that some of the European leaders are determined to increase military cooperation and abilities as soon as they possibly can.

Both biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies indicate that a military leader will rise up again in Europe, and that “the English” will be taken over.

And while some of the Roman Catholics seem to believe that this is a good thing, the Bible clearly warns against this.

Several articles of related interest may include:

Who is the King of the North? Is there one? Do biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies point to the same leader? Should he be followed? Who will be the King of the North discussed in Daniel 11? Is a nuclear attack prophesied to happen to the English-speaking peoples? When do the 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days (the time, times, and half a time) of Daniel 12 begin?
Europa, the Beast, and Revelation Where did Europe get its name? What might Europe have to do with the Book of Revelation? What about “the Beast”?
Which Is Faithful: The Roman Catholic Church or the Living Church of God? Do you know that both groups shared a lot of the earliest teachings? Do you know which church changed? Do you know which group is most faithful to the teachings of the apostolic church? Which group best represents true Christianity? This documented article answers those questions.
