EU Sovereignty Issues


European Union Tower of Babel Poster


The nations of the European Union are facing various issues related to national sovereignty.  While they theoretically gave up national sovereignty when they approved the Lisbon Treaty a few years ago, they still have issues:

Draghi: euro countries to lose even more sovereignty
May 4, 2012 excerpts…European Central Bank (ECB) chief Mario Draghi has urged eurozone leaders to come up with a 10-year target for the common currency, saying they should accept more transfer of powers if they truly want a fiscal union.

Fitch ratings agency published a report outlining five possible scenarios for the future of the eurozone: a “Greek Exit;” a “Quasi-Fiscal Union;” the “Euro-mark” where Germany and a “core” exit leaving the remaining countries with the euro; the “United States of Europe;” and a “Full Break Up.”A full break-up and the demise of the euro is very unlikely, Fitch said in a press statement, given the huge financial and political costs.

Anti-EU sentiment in Europe is rising. Much and perhaps most of NATO and the EU’s current travails can be traced to the same basic flaw: national sovereignty. Both organizations have elaborate consultative and rule-making structures. NATO has a unified command structure. There is even a European parliament. Yet, the central fact that determines the way both organizations function — or in this case fail to do so — is that their members retain their sovereign rights as independent states.

Additional fiscal (cf. Revelation 13:16-17) and political union is prophesied for the end time Babylonian beast power (Revelation 17:12-13).

National sovereignty will be lost:

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 17:12-14)

Yet, having problems related to national sovereignty is consistent with other aspects of Bible prophecy related to end time Europe (Daniel 2:41-43).

Europe has tended to have similarities to the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11 (see EU’s Fragile Tower of Babel) and sometimes has used it as a reference as the poster at the beginning of this article shows. The term Babylon seems to derive from Babel and the Bible indicates that the end time Babylon will be European (cf. Revelation 17).

According to Bible prophecy, a European power, despite its fragility (Daniel 2:41-43), is destined to temporarily be the most dominant force in the world (Revelation 13:4), ultimately conquer the Anglo-descended nations (it is the USA and its Anglo-allies like the UK that have the strongest fortresses of Daniel 11:39), and later come to its end (Daniel 11:45).  This power will be affiliated with the final “Babylon” (Revelation 17 & 18).

The fact that national sovereignty continues to be a subject of debate for Europe, indicates that many believe that it is being lost or will be lost.  Despite what will seem to be temporary setbacks, the Bible prophecies that national sovereignty in Europe clearly will be lost.
