More Calls to Make Herman van Rompuy President of the Eurozone

Herman Van Rompuy


There are more calls today in the EU to give more power to Herman van Rompuy:

BRUSSELS (AP) — The leaders of France and Germany said Wednesday that they want the heads of the eurozone countries to elect the president of a new “economic government” who would direct regular summits to respond to the continent’s financial crisis.

For many in the markets, the proposal fell short of hopes: a grand plan to save the euro and, in particular, a sign the eurozone was moving toward a single bond issued by the 17 countries.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel outlined their proposals in a letter to Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council. They said that they hoped Van Rompuy would get the job…

Merkel and Sarkozy said the two countries’ finance ministers would come up with a proposal by September that would be forwarded to the European Commission.A transaction tax — a small percentage taken from foreign exchange and share transactions, for instance — has been proposed as a source of money to pay for bank bailouts.

…Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel unveiled a plan on Tuesday to tax financial transactions.

The pair, under heavy pressure to restore confidence in the euro zone after a dramatic market slump, did not detail how such a tax would work. That did not stop Austria, Italy and Spain signaling that they too would support the idea.

But Ireland’s finance minister, Michael Noonan, said any new tax must apply to all 27 members of the EU and not just the 17 members of the euro zone.

PARIS — France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel sent a joint letter Wednesday to EU president Herman Van Rompuy inviting him to chair a body of eurozone leaders.

In the past, EU Council President Herman Van Rompuy as indicated that he would support the type of financial transaction tax that French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel outlined.

Perhaps if he adds a stronger title, and gains more influence, he will be able to directly fulfill Daniel 11:20 (especially if he dies shortly after raising taxes).  Here are three translations:

Then shall arise in his place one who shall send an exactor of tribute for the glory of the kingdom. But within a few days he shall be broken, neither in anger nor in battle. (ESV)

Then 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. (KJV)

Then shall stand up in his place one who shall cause a tax collector to pass through the kingdom to maintain its glory; but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle. (WEB)

Might Herman Van Rompuy fulfill that?


But even if Herman Van Rompuy is not specifically prophesied to fulfill Daniel 11:20 (perhaps his successor will be), the trend in Europe is to go for a stronger leader. And ultimately, a major dictator (and I do not anticipate at this time that it will be Herman van Rompuy) will rise up (Revelation 17:12-13), the final King of the North, European Beast power of Bible prophecy.
