A United States of Europe conference is happening this week.  Here is some information about it and what at least one of the attendees believes:

Joschka Fischer: European states must “combine interests” for common good

European Parliament – Jan 13, 2011

Joschka Fischer, former German Foreign Minister and leading Green politician was at the European Parliament Wednesday (12 January) to take part in a conference entitled “The United States of Europe – Towards a Transnational Society?” An avowed federalist on European matters, Mr Fischer used the conference to call for greater European unity and for Europe to “combine our interests” to weather the economic storm. We caught up with him and asked his views on the current state of Europe…

What should the Europe of the future resemble?

It’s very simple. Every day we are losing part of our sovereignty to the emerging powers. Yet we still wonder if we should abandon our sovereignty (in favour of the EU) or not. We are losing that sovereignty anyway! It’s just that it is going to non-European powers in the East (like China). We are losing importance and losing our position. The world is changing dramatically and the question that Europeans must answer is what will be the place of Europe in ten years.

Europe must be strong. This will only be possible if we combine our interests. It’s laborious but it is possible if we exercise our sovereignty in a common manner. The aim would be to enter the “United States of Europe“, a true association of democratic states that pool their sovereignty. But our national identities continue to exist and the United Nations will continue therefore to play a strong role.

Many within the EU believe that it has no choice but to move forward.

And for Europe to be “strong” it will no doubt decide that it must have stronger military abilities.  Abilities that I suspect that many in Europe are currently working on.

It may interesting to realize that when Europe was still recovering from being devasted in World War II, in the December 1948 issue of The Plain Truth Herbert W. Armstrong predicted a coming “United States of Europe” (Armstrong HW. Now It Can Be Told…The Plain Truth,December 1948, p. 5).   Additionally in October 2002, French politician Valery Giscard d’Estaing suggested that the name of the European Community should be changed to United States of Europe–and while that precise name is not necessary, it does show that the Church of God’s basic view has long been correct. We in the Living Church of God, of course, continue to warn about this emerging European Beast power in our telecasts and literature.

The “beast-power” is being formed in the 21st century–the final King of the North will soon rise up and be revealed–in Europe.

Some articles of possibly 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 of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand? When do the 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days (the time, times, and half a time) of Daniel 12 begin? When does the Bible show that economic collapse will affect the United States?
Might German Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg become the King of the North? Is the German Defense Minister one to watch? What do Catholic, Byzantine, and biblical prophecies suggest?
Is Russia the King of the North? Some claim it is. But what does the Bible teach?
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”? Is an emerging European power “the daughter of Babylon”? What is ahead for Europe?
