German View of Herman Van Rompuy

Herman Van Rompuy


Herman Van Rompuy became the first permanent President of the European Union of the Lisbon Treaty a month ago, but he assumes office today.  Here are excerpts from a modified electronic translation of a German news report about him:

The Talented Mr. Europe


Herman Van Rompuy…The pale Belgian will soon be Europe’s first husband, but he is still underestimated

(Proissl W. Der talentierte Mr. Europe. 29.12.2009, © 2009 Financial Times Deutschland.

It would appear that most in the world have never even heard of Herman Van Rompuy, yet he is now the president of a 500,000,000 person European empire (which is what the post-Lisbon Treaty implementation-date European Union is).

Readers will note that in addition to being a truly practicing Catholic, Herman Van Rompuy publicly has declared that he wants to raise taxes in Europe.  Herman Van Rompuy is also looking at possible “green taxes” that could affect even non-EU nations.  Hence, his tax raising could affect the whole world.  And while many may dismiss the tax-raising intentions of the European Union’s first post-Lisbon President, those interested in end-time prophecy may find the following writing to be of interest:

20Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle (Daniel 11:20, KJV).

The above suggests that a leader will rise up, raise taxes for the glory of some kingdom (apparently a European-based one, as the other references in that chapter of the Bible are to a leader called the “King of the North” such as verses 13 and 14).

Could Herman Van Rompuy fulfill that prophecy?

If that prophecy has a 21st century fulfillment, Herman Van Rompuy raises taxes as he has indicated that he will, he is somehow “destroyed” (other translations use the terms “shattered”, “slip out of history quietly”, “die”, “be broken”, “come to a sudden end in some mysterious way”, and “killed” so the precise way this leader comes to his end is subject to interpretation) shortly thereafter, he might.  Especially if he is replaced by one the Bible calls the vile person.

Notice the type of leader that is to follow the “raiser of taxes”:

21And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries (Daniel 11:21, KJV).

Herman Van Rompuy does not seem to be the leader warned about as the “vile person” (the “vile person” may be the “Beast” of Revelation 13).

But should Herman Van Rompuy be destroyed/shatterd/broken/etc. shortly after getting certain taxes imposed, and he not be killed in a battle or in anger, and the “kingdom” discussed is the new European Union, AND Herman Van Rompuy is followed by a vile leader who will be the final King of the North, AND if Daniel 11:20 has a future end-time fulfillment, then it may well be that Herman Van Rompuy’s role was prophesied by Daniel over 2,500 years ago.  And while that is a lot of ANDs, it seems like they may be possible.

Stay tuned.
