EU’s Van Rompuy Proposes Tax Increase, But…

Herman Van Rompuy


Might EU President Herman Van Rompuy fulfill the following scripture?

20 “There shall arise in his place one who imposes taxes on the glorious kingdom; but within a few days he shall be destroyed, but not in anger or in battle. (Daniel 11:20)

EU President Herman Van Rompuy has gone on record supporting some type of tax for the EU in the past (see EU Tax Proposed).   And it was just announced that he has proposed another one that may not make it for a while:

EU members baulk at tax hurdle

A PUSH to align European corporate tax systems has emerged as the biggest obstacle to a proposal aimed at imposing more fiscal discipline on the 17 countries in the euro zone…

The proposal was drafted by officials of the president of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy, and the president of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso.

Essentially the proposal would raise corporate taxes in many of the smaller nations in the EU.  But it is running into enough resistance that I do not believe it will be implemented (at least as proposed) for some time (and it may not be).  Of course, since the Bible indicates that the final European power will not be highly cohesive, like iron mixed with clay (Daniel 2:41-43), these type of issues are really no surprise.

As regular readers of this COGwriter page are aware, I have felt since prior to his taking up of his office on December 1, 2010, that Herman Van Rompuy could be the one to be the potentially prophesied “raiser of taxes” for the Europeans, prior to the rise of the final King of the North (see Herman Van Rompuy May Fulfill Daniel 11:20, But Did PCG’s Gerald Flurry Predict It?).

Now, this one particular tax uniformity, even if goes through, is probably not enough to fulfill the prophecy. But if Herman Van Rompuy is involved in raising others and dies shortly thereafter, he is a candidate for this role in Daniel 11:20.

Thus far, the Europeans have taken a more cautious approach to their debt problems that the USA.  Tax issues, as well as spending cuts, are ones that the Europeans seem to be looking at more seriously than the American political leaders in Washington seem to be willing to do.

Time may be getting short. And if various taxes are raised for the European Union, this may signal how close we may be to the rising up of the final King of the North, and also the Antichrist.
