The Maastricht Treaty

Maastricht: The EU’s First Treaty on Political Union

In April 1990, France and Germany launched the idea of a new Treaty on Political Union that would include foreign policy. That month, during the Dublin Summit the Community firmly committed itself to political union.

On December 15, 1990, the Council of Ministers met in Rome at an Intergovernmental Conference on Political Union (IGC).

In December 1991, one year later at Maastricht, the Netherlands, the conference convened.

Maastricht’s most solid achievement was the firm commitment to establish economic and monetary union (EMU) involving a single currency governed by a European Central Bank by 1999, which it accomplished.

Along with monetary union, the treaty established the beginnings of a common defense component which would evolve with later treaties.

Article J.4 of the Treaty on European Union added: “The common foreign and security of the Union, including the eventual framing of a common defense policy, which might in time lead to a common defense.” It paved the way to the creation of a distinct political identity.

The Maastricht agreement marked the first step in adding a political dimension to the EU, and transforming it from an economic venture into a political reality. An objective of the Maastricht Treaty was for the EU to “assert its identity on the international scene…through the implementation of a common foreign and security policy.” The Maastricht Treaty, a 189-page document, allowed the EU to forge common foreign and defense policies for the first time.

Prior to Maastricht, the EU acted in the area of foreign policy through European Political Cooperation (EPC). This was the EU’s process of consultation and common action among its members in the field of foreign policy. An EPC meeting brought together the Member States’ highest officials, their foreign ministers, and the EU Commission. The confidential telex system (coreu) linked the twelve foreign ministries of the Member States, the EPC secretariat, and the Commission. It provided rapid and secure communications, and reduced the need for holding special ministerial meetings. Through its single, coherent approach, EPC aimed to maximize its influence in international affairs. Maastricht turned EPC into something more than a consultation club; it laid the foundation for a real government. The 1992 Maastricht Treaty changed the name of the European Communities to the European Union and gave the EU the formal title of “Union.”

The Economist , commenting on the treaty, stated: “Believers in a federal Europe insist that the treaty lays down the main elements, if only in embryo, of a future European government, a single currency, common foreign and defense policy, a common citizenship and a parliament with teeth. It is just a matter of waiting they believe, for history to take its course.”

European Federalism in a Nutshell

European Federalism in a Nutshell

Federalist Ideology

Federalists believe that sovereign nations are no longer able to solve the world’s problems. They regard national sovereignty as a traditional, outmoded governmental precept of the past. European federalists view the sovereign nation state as an unfit model for organizing relations between European states. By pooling specific areas of sovereignty nations can prevent war and gain the ability to influence their futures.

In the December 1991 issue of European Affairs, Franz Anderiessen, former Vice President of the EU Commission, stated in his article: “The Integration of Europe: Its Now or Never,””Europe, and the world at large have suffered immeasurably, not least in this enlightened century, from exaggerated ideas of the role of the sovereign states.” The European Commission in part funds the New Federalist, the newsletter of the Young European Federalists. An eminent member of the World Federalists in the United States stated in an essay, which appeared in their 1992, No. 2 newsletter on the Introduction To World Federalism:

The current nation-state system is impractical and, in many ways, a global anarchy…Presently, blind, idolatrous nationalism is the primary force in opposition to world federation. Children at a young age must be taught the importance of loyalty to one’s family, community and homeland… loyalty to one’s planet must also be emphasized. Is there a better way than war and economic coercion to solve the world conflict? Yes, a better alternative is through system of equitable and enforceable world law.

Federalists aim for a new world based on the rule of international law, thus achieving Pax Universalis. To the federalist, one’s loyalty belongs to planet Earth. Urgency accompanies their cause, with the slogan “mankind must unite or perish.” Some members believe federalism is a force that will be unleashed throughout the whole world. They view global unity as the utopian solution to end all wars. Federalists believe that with the collapse of communism, their goal for world government has become a concrete and political aim.

With threats global in nature, nations will find no other alternative but to align with one another. Federalism’s precepts have humanistic aims. The New Federalist summed up the ideology for international law in their Introduction To World Federalism issue published in 1992 by stating that:

Federalism overcomes the cause of war. The division of the world into sovereign states with the world federation, that final stronghold of violence between men, war, will be eliminated. International anarchy will be replaced by the rule of law between states. The world federation will, as Kant taught us, open up a world in which man can consider other men as ends in themselves and in which he can fully and autonomously develop all the capacities that are within him. The world federation will open the history of the human race.

Historical Decisions in the Evolution of the EU

European Federalism Lends to Major EU Decisions

Richard Maynes and John Pinder’s book, Federal Union: The Pioneers, A History of Federal Union records that during the 1960′s the Federalist Trust’s focused on the EU’s economic, institutional, and political development. Those attending its conferences included a wider range of EU policy makers. Former French President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing spoke at their conferences. By the late 1960s, the Trust studied ways to improve Community institutions and policy. Federalists advised a common set of foreign, security, defense, and monetary policies.
Many of the staff members of the Trust regarded European federalism as the first step in establishing a new world system. Most of them later became leading political figures. Some became members of the EU Commission. Others became editors for European affairs journals, and. held other influential posts.

EU countries in the early 1980s suffered high unemployment and low growth. Europe barely recovered from the 1982 recession, unlike the US. This ignited a stronger commitment. European leaders felt it imperative to rebuild their economies for their companies to compete in the global market. Two major decisions helped them to accomplish this goal:

On June 1985, the EU published a white paper entitled, “Completing the Internal Market.” It contained 285 directives and specific laws. It assigned each order an expected date of adoption ranging from 1985 to 1991. The mandates removed fiscal, technical, and physical barriers. They also harmonized product standards, diplomas, insurance and credit regulations, and taxation from country to country.

On January 1, 1987, The European Single Act came into force. Except in cases involving health and environment, the Council of Ministers now voted a yes vote by weighted majority. Previously, all Council decisions required voting by unanimous decision. This method slowed the EU’s growth. The EU could now move forward.

In 1987, the Trust examined the idea of a European Security Community. The group’s report proposed:

The Union pools their defense forces. The EU partners with the U.S. as the European pillar NATO.

Seeks a common security relationship with the Soviet Union

Reforms the UN into a more effective peacekeeper.

The report views the Union as world community made up of nations. This will lead it to a world government one day. The Trust produced a set of proposals on how the EU might forge federal institutions. They suggested instituting a European federal bank to underpin economic and monetary union. The Trust also proposed a common security and foreign policy. The Union adopted all of these proposals, and they are now Union policy. The European Central Bank under the Lisbon Treaty became an official EU institution.

Revelation 17: Religions Role in the EU’s Formation

The Bible depicts the Whore of Babylon-which represents false religion- sitting on the Beast, signifying that she plays a principal role. Religion does play a part in European politics. Its precepts provided the ideology that prompted the European Union’s formation. Religion has a voice in European politics through the Christian Democratic and Socialist political parties, which elect statesmen who share their beliefs. The leaders of these parties become the political representatives of their churches. During the French Revolution, as Democracy spread through Europe, so did Christian political parties. Most of these parties were Catholic. The Christian Democratic political movement would defend the Church’s ultimate interests. This political party assumed responsibility for the social services that the Church was no longer in a position to provide. The Whore in part sits on the Beast through the Christian political parties that are responsible for the European Union’s formation and evolution. While Christian doctrine founded America, the Whore’s precepts provide the ideological basis for the formation of the final world power’s government.

Catholic ideals influenced the European Union’s founders. During World War II, French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman, German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, and Alcide de Gasperi, each man exemplary Catholics, had been hunted by Nazis and Fascists. De Gasperi-the founder of the Christian Democratic Party in Italy, and a militant Catholic activist and anti-fascist-became premier of Italy in 1945. He believed that the party man remained linked with his spiritual mother, the Church. His theological convictions influenced his public and private actions.

German Chancellor Konrad Adenaeur helped found the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in Germany in 1945. He “typified a Catholic Germany in contrast to a pagan Germany.” In 1949, the Frenchman Robert Schuman became France’s foreign minister. He had wanted to become a priest, but gave the idea up to serve his faith in other ways. For him, politics was a priestly duty. All three men were politicians with high ideals. Pope Pius XII, who held strong political beliefs, sought to aid the cause of peace with the help of fellow Catholics. He and the leaders of the Christian Democratic parties formulated a plan. For the first time, leaders of the Catholic Church headed the French, Italian, and German governments. The Christian Democratic political parties aroused hopes of a new Christianity. The movement arranged religious gatherings where they planned political action. Vatican Europe became part of the political scene.

Religion influenced the European Union’s formation through political leaders who embraced its precepts. These men acted as key players in the Union’s formation. They held the highest positions in its newly established organizations. Robert Schuman became the first president of the European Commission in 1958. Alcide de Gasperi held the presidential post of the ECSC Common Assembly in 1954. Monsignor Pierre Raffin, the Bishop of Metz, in Schuman’s native Lorraine, launched a campaign for his beatification; the first step on the way to sainthood. Some Christian Democratic members of the European Parliament backed the initiative. Of Jacques Delors, the former EU Commission president, Stanley Hoffman, who writes on European Union affairs, wrote: “A former official of the French labor union inspired by progressive Catholic thought, he exemplifies the synthesis of Christian democracy and socialism on which the Community was built.” One’s religious convictions greatly affect one’s political beliefs.

Radio Show Script Euro Movement, Euro Federalism and One World Government

Script from my blogtalkradio The Prophecy Talk show:

Euro Movement, Euro Federalism and One World Government

 

In last week’s show in which I taught against conspiracy theories I said that in this week’s show I would tell my listeners what information is out in the open and what they have missed by keeping their eye on non-existent conspiracy theories.

If you have purchased my report EUAntichrist  or my book The Seat of the Antichrist where I expose the teachings of European Federalism, which is the ideological term for one worldism  you would have read of the ideology and its aim for a one world government.  You would also have read how federalists believe that the EU should act as the cornerstone for uniting the globe you can read the details about what federalists believe and their slogans.

EU Antichrist reveals that the federalist movement in the European Union is the ideology that drives the Union and many key leaders within the EU have come from Federalist ranks..

European Federalism closely aligns with the European Movement, which dates back to 1947. While Federalism provides the ideology and blueprint for the EU, the European Movement provides the legs.

As I stated last week, Bible Prophecy conspiracy theorists often point to organizations such as the Freemasons, Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations as secret organizations conspiring for World Government. Right under the noses of conspiracy theorists existed  and still exists the European Movement and euro federaslism, which  they should have been paying attention to.  If you do not know about it, you will learn about federalism and the European movement in today’s broadcast. Unlike conspricy theorists whose societies are secret, euro federalist goals and aims are not secret at all but out in the open for all to learn about and possibly join. Many federalists belong to the Bilderbergers, and Trilateral Commission and have their influence within those organizations.

European Federalists existed and started The European Movement. The European Movement formed in 1947 and for good reason.  The ECSC which pooled the steel and coal of France and Germany, and marked the birth of the European Unioin, formed to help prevent another world war. The war officially ended with the surrender of Germany in May of 1945, followed by the surrender of Japan in August 1946. Pro-European and federalist movements campaigned even more actively in favor of European unification. Some of these groups originated in the Resistance and they came together to create the Liaison Committee of the Movements for European Unity on 20 July 1947 in Paris.

It comprised the Independent League for European Cooperation (ILEC), led by former Belgian Prime Minister Paul van Zeeland, the Union of European Federalists (UEF), led by Henri Brugmans of the Netherlands, and Winston Churchill’s United Europe Movement(UEM). The task was soon complicated, however, by personal and ideological differences. The Unionists wanted more of a union, while the federalists wanted a Europe modeled along the lines of the United States.

Alcide De Gasperi and Paul-Henri Spaak, both who were instrumental in the formation of the ECSC, or start of the European Union were elected as Honorary Presidents. After a few name changes of their organization for European Unity, the first Congress of Europe in The Hague in 1948, changed its name to the European Movement.)

Presided over by Winston Churchill, the Congress brought together representatives from across a broad political spectrum, providing them with the opportunity to discuss ideas about the development of the European Union, which was the European Community prior to being renamed the European Union.

Important political figures such as Konrad Adenauer, Winston Churchill, Harold Macmillan, François Mitterrand, Paul-Henry Spaak, Albert Coppé and Altiero Spinelli took an active role in the congress and a call was launched for a political, economic and monetary Union of Europe.  Many of these men were the EU’s founding fathers.   Francois Mitterrand later became prime minister of France and was noted for his contributions to the evolving EU. He supported the enlargement of the Community to include Spain and Portugal (which both joined in January 1986). In 1986 he helped the Single European Act come into effect, which made the EU’s decision making process go smoother and easier to help push through major decisions with greater ease among its members.  Mitterand  worked well with Helmut Kohl and improved Franco-German relations significantly. Together they fathered the Maastricht Treaty. The European Movement has been such an important part of foreign affairs in the wake of the war that the United States funded its operations and formed a US branch.  The American Committee on United Europe (ACUE), founded in 1948, was an sought to counter the Communist threat in Europe by promoting European political integration. Its first chairman was ex-wartime OSS head, William Joseph Donovan.[1]

Declassified American government documents have shown that the ACUE was an important early funder of both the European Movement and the European Youth Campaign. The ACUE itself received funding from the Rockefeller and Ford foundations.

The U.S. policy was to promote a United States of Europe, and to this end the committee was used to discretely funnel CIA funds – by the mid 50′s ACUE was receiving roughly $1,000,000 USD per year – to European pro-federalists supporting such organizations as the Council of Europe, the European Coal and Steel Community, and the proposed European Defence Community.[2]

The European Movements objective is to “contribute to the establishment of a united, federal Europe founded on democratic principles. It provides a structure to encourage and facilitate the active participation of citizens and civil society organisations in the development of a united Europe”. Its 42 National Councils and 32 associated Member Organisations work towards bringing together representatives from European associations, political parties, enterprises, trade unions and individual lobbyists.

The European Movement has played a crucial role in the construction of Europe. The European Movement’s main focus of attention centers on influencing political, social and cultural arenas of European Society. As I am reciting its history, you have to keep in mind that the European Movement is dominated by Euro Federalists and what is Euro federalism’s long term aim but world government with the European Union acting as the cornerstone for uniting the world.  The parallel here is that Jesus is the cornerstone of the church and he unites the church to the father.  The European Union will unite the Antichrist to the world.

The European Movement has been responsible for notable achievements, which have greatly contributed to the European Union.  The first major achievement was the setting up of the Council of Europe in May 1949. The European Movement was also responsible for the creation of the College of Europe in Bruges.  It is to the European political elite what the Harvard Business School is to corporate America.  The Economist describes it as an elite finishing school for aspiring Eurocats. The financial times writes that the elite College of Europe in Bruges in an institution geared to producing crop after crop of graduates with a lifelong enthusiasm for EU integration.

Since 1948, the European Movement has lobbied for further integration, on numerous subjects. It worked in favor of the direct election of the European Parliament  by all European citizens.  In favor of the Treaty on the European Union (the Maastricht Treaty  and also for a European Constitution.  Its objective was to transform the relations between the European States and its citizens into a Federal European Union. Currently, the EMI is represented in 41 European countries and regroups 20 international Associations. Now if this isn’t organized I do not know what is?  If you subscribe to Global Watch weekly they will be coming out with an issue where I write about euro federalism and the European movement and I highlight the EU’s movers and shakers within the European Union and you will see in that report how many key European union leaders, prime ministers, European members of parliament, eu parliament presidents and even heads of NATO are euro federalists.

To the  conspiracy theorists who have been listening these last couple of broadcasts, I believe I have proved to you beyond a doubt, the errors of those teachings and  have revealed to you now, what has existed right under neath the noses of conspiracy theorists, which frankly is more in line with Bible Prophecy and more shocking to the believer who knows what the Scriptures teach about what is ahead.

 

Why US Citizens Better Pay Attention to the EU

Below is my script from my blogtalkradio The Erika Grey Prophecy Talk Show titled, “Why US Citizens Better Pay Attention to the EU”

There are many people in the US who believe that entire world rises and falls around the United States. America is the most powerful nation in the world.  America provides the policemen for the world. Our soldiers stand in bases situated in countries around the world. The US dollar is the world’s reserve and it is used around the world. Non one can match us. We are the world’s leading superpower.

Americans do not pay attention to anything that does not affect them directly.   We only want to watch news on topics that entertain us. We listen to celebrity gossip, watch the ladies sitting around the view, tune into watch Honey booboo eat her macaroni and cheese, we pay attention to when our  president speaks to the nation, but the European Union, who cares about the EU, besides what is the EU anyway.

Who can understand it.   The EU it sounds boring, we do not want to listen to a boring topic we want to be entertained. We’ll take a scandal anyday.  Shock me, entertain me but don’t bore me with the European Union or any boring BBC world news in parts of the world that no one even cares about.  After all the world rises and falls around the United States. You might look at my book, The Seat of the Antichrist and say hum, catchy title because the Antichrist well he is scary and creepy and he entertains, but the subtitle, Bible Prophecy and The European Union.  Oops there goes that boring EU word again.  Well who cares about the European Union. Besides what is it?  Where is it?  Oh Europe-how unexciting. This humdrum EU word, this European Union that many of you do not know about and do not care about is an empire.  A full fledged, bonfied empire.  Just like the old holy roman one.   BTW, this empire is also what the the prophet Daniel predicted would revive in its later days and launch the Antichrist.   Some of you might say,  The European Union as the final world empire, well that is years away so again who cares.  If you think it is years away you are wrong.

Let me now give you some facts about the EU that will not bore you.

The United States has 314 million citizens, the European Union has 504 million and growing.

The European Union is the world’s largest economy with the largest GDP in the world.

With just 7% of the world’s population, the EU’s trade with the rest of the world accounts for around 20% of global exports and imports. The EU is the world’s biggest exporter and the second-biggest importer.

The euro – used every day by some 332 million Europeans when it was launched in 1999 within a few years became the world’s second reserve currency.

The EU has the world’s largest standing army.

The EU has its own flag, anthem and motto.

Oh but Germany is the European Union’s largest economy and it really runs the EU and without Germany the EU would be nothing.   Germany trades with more countries within the European Union than countries outside of the EU, it is in part so wealthy because of its trade among the EU states.

The Euro crisis, the EU and euro are going to fall apart.   Since the start of the Euro crisis, the EU has tightened its ship, it is fixing the leak so to speak with changes called the six pact, the two pact which MEP Andrew Duff stated was The first steppingstone for the work to develop a fiscal union and The Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economic and Monetary Union was signed on 2 March 2012.  On their to do list is their issuance of Euro bonds which will be similar to US treasuries, and will give US treasuries some serious competition.  That will knock the US down a few notches.

Oh but the United States has the greatest say in world institutions.  Once the EU adds the final touches to its treaties in 2015 and is a federal government like the US and is no longer considered by those world institutions as a regional pact, it will have the greatest say in world institutions.

For all of your people who do not pay attention to the EU, who think that the EU is boring and means nothing to American citizens I am going to play you a song and the song is the European Union’s national anthem and I want you to listen because one day this is going to be the anthem that will become known to the world. It will be the anthem for many nations..  You will pay attention then. Listen because you might as well get used to it now.

european-anthem-2012

I hope that you enjoyed the anthem.  Now that you have listened to the world’s future anthem let me tell you that the day is coming soon when the world will enter the tribulation period.  The prophets of God have warned you and have been warning and you do not pay attention. The signs are all here, and there are many who are pointing them out on blogtalkradio, on youtube, and elsewhere on the internet, we may differ in what we focus on,and may each have a special area of expertise,  but our final message is the same. Just as Jeremiah and the Old Testament prophets warned Israel of the coming Babylonian invasion, we are warning you that the tribulation is coming.  You had better be ready because now is the acceptable time of Salvation. This European Union that you can care less about is already an empire.  A non imperial empire as Commission President Barosso defined.  It will rule the middle east region and the world. It will conquer nations and march through them as warring nations do. The EU will be headed by the Antichrist. You better pay attention to what is going on in the world because the world does not rise and fall around the United States.

If you are a Christian during that time you cannot take the mark of the beast because to take the mark is to die eternally.   As Eve took the apple and died spiritually, so taking the mark of the beast will bring upon yourself eternal damnation.   The Antichrist is not coming from the United States, he is not going to spring from the United Nations, or any Middle Eastern Country such as Syria or Iraq, he is going to rise from the waters of the Mediterranean.   He will rise with his little horn and ten surrounding horns on his 7 heads which represents the European Union in its final form in contrast to the slain lamb of God with 7 horns and seven eyes, his 7 horns representing the 7 churches in the beginning of the book of revelation that he is Lord over. The church of Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, Laodicea.   The European Union under the direction of the Antichrist will become the monolith beast with a, lion face bearing giant teeth, walking on crushing iron legs with huge bear’s feet with cheetah speed. It will become a modern day tower of babel the Bible refers to him and his empire as a beast. It is like a wild beast because its leader will be evil, vile and corrupt. , and will literally be the  Son of Satan himself and In the mean time don’t pay attention to the European Union, stay blinded in the delusion that everything in this world rises and falls around the United States.  You’ll pay attention one day,  that I can guarantee you.

 

The New Order: The Age of Empire: The New World Order is History?

Below you will find the article written for my BlogTalkRadio Show “Prophecy Talk” show titled:

The New Order: The Age of Empire: The New Order is History. 

23 Years ago on September 11, 1990 George Bush stood at a podium in front of congress and uttered the phrase New World Order. Like LIGHTNING, it bolted through the airwaves of conspiracy theorists and the huddled masses of Evangelical Christians. The New World Order would launch the Antichrist and the ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT the bible describes. New World Order became the end all, CATCH-ALL PHRASE of Bible Prophecy watchers. While the apostle John sat on a rock on the Isle of Patmos he saw in his END-TIME vision the whole world WORSHIPING and taking the Mark of the Beast.  John’s vision recorded in Revelation chapter 13 aligned perfectly with a New World Order, which implied the possibility of a World state.

Here in 2013, I am here to tell you that New World Order is now for the history books.  Thank you George Herbert Bush, your little phrase hopped the conspiracy theorist bandwagon, it rocked the evangelical Christian world and was beaten into the ground and sand so many times, and now it finds itself in the dust bin of history.

Bush coined the phrase 22 years ago.   The Berlin wall fell and the new world order existed for about the next 20 years The new world order rose from the ashes of communism.  George Bush envisioned democracy on a world wide scale with globalization bringing the nations together in cooperation. Conspiracy theorists embraced George Bush’s new world order as headed by their illuminati’s and Bilderbergers.  Its been over 20 years, 22 to be exact and no takeover. We do not have a world governed by the conspiracy theorist’s secret societies.

What happened to the New World Order and why is now a phrase and a piece of history scholars will write into history books?  It transitioned to Age of Empires. We have walked through the doors to the empire Age. No one expected it, no one imagined it.  The prophet Daniel talked about it and laid it out in vivid detail over 2500 years ago..

ACCORDING TO THE WORDS OF THE PROPHETS an empire launches the Antichrist. specifically The Revived Roman Empire. As Daniel stood in front of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon interpreting his dream image and relating it to the end times, he forecast-ed AND ENVISIONED THE FOUR Empires that would rule Israel.  Among them STOOD the Empire that the Antichrist will rise to super power prominence.  Daniel never wrote about a New World Order, he foresaw an empire, which stands with the appearance of a Terminator.  It walks on two enormous iron legs.  This monster opens its lion like mouth and shows its great iron teeth. It crushes all who oppose it.

In 2008 MEP and former prime minister of Belgium Guy Verhofstadt named the current geopolitical frame work as the age of empires. He brought up the emerging bric nations of Brazil, Russia, India, China and the United States and European Union.

Russia has 143, million citizens,

Brazil the fifth largest nation in the world has 200 million

The United States population of 316 million is cited as the third largest nation, but is knocked off of its third place slot by the European union, which has 504 million citizens.  When Croatia becomes the 28th member of the European Union in July of this year its population will increase to 508.2 million citizens.

China and India are monolith. China is the largest nation in the world with 1.3 billion persons and India follows right behind with 1.21 billion.

The empire that prophecy watchers should keep an eye on, is the one that Daniel pinpoints as the final world empire. This is the revived roman empire, which is today’s European Union.

European Union Commission President Manuel Barroso while sitting among a group of European Union officials was asked by a reporter about the structure of the European Union and he answered CALMLY that it is an empire. He called it a non-imperial empire.

During the cold war we lived in a bipolar wold with the US and Russia as the leading superpowers.  Afterwards the world went unipolar with the United States as the sole superpower.   Some experts say we have evolved into a multipolar world, which has replaced the new world order.  A multipolar world will only exist for a short time.  The bible describes a unipolar world headed by an empire that unifies the world.  It does not happen via a conspiracy, but rather via geopolitics .  Thus, one of the empires in the multipolar world reaches the top of the list in economic strength and power turning the multipolar world, unipolar.

John while standing on the sands of the Mediterranean sea sees a beast rise up out of the sea. Its seven heads and ten horns pop out of the water and its fully exposed head bears a blasphemous name. John does not see a new world order, he sees an empire.  The final world empire rules the nations. The final world empire makes the world’s citizens take the mark of the beast.  The final world empire will write the rules for the globe.  The final world empire will launch the Antichrist who will lead this government to super power status..

George Herbert Bush’s new world order is now history and the new order is the age of empire or the empire age.  Bible prophecy watchers will see the evolution of the multipolar into a unipolar with the European Union as the leading world empire.

The EU: The Building of Its Empire

 The EU is an empire.  If you go to my website you will find the video where present EU Commissioner Barosso classifies the EU as an Empire. Former Belgium Prime Minister and president of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in the EU Parliament Guy Verhofstadt stated that we are in the age of empires.   The current financial crisis will end up bringing about an EU that mirrors the United States, only instead of bringing to together 50 states it will bring together 28+ nations. Here is an excerpt from my book The Seat of the Antichrist: Bible Prophecy and the European Union concerning the EU building its empire which it is still in the process of building.  Concerning the EU’s rise to Empire status you will read some quotes over the past couple of decades of the predictions from world leaders concerning the EU.

           Former Harvard Professor Samuel Huntington speculated in the 1990’s that “the EC if it were to become politically cohesive, would have the population, resources, economic wealth, technology and actual potential military strength to be the preeminent power of the 21st century.” Cornelius van der Klugt, while he chaired Philips, affirmed: “If we organize ourselves, Europe will grow faster than the US and Japan combined.” The EU is in the process of building its empire.  According to Scripture, the EU will become the most powerful empire the world has ever known. EU bureaucrats purpose to transform the EU into a political world power.  Former French President François Mitterrand stated: “From now until the turn of the millennium, we have ten years to win the race for Europeans.  No institution should escape this critical examination, not the European Community, NATO, the Council of Europe or the CSCE.  All should play their part.”  Former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl declared: “I am convinced this is going to be the decade of the Europeans.”[i]

One motive for European unity is to reclaim the limelight that virtually all of its member countries enjoyed during earlier periods of history.   At the start of the Cold War, the US and Soviet Union became the leading world powers.  Europe suffered the greatest share of the war’s destruction.   America aided in the rebuilding of Europe and provided for its defense through the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.   Although Europe and America stood alongside each other as strong allies, Europeans harbored ill feelings concerning certain American policies.  Some

Europeans desired a significant place on the world stage.

At the end of World War II, the European dream was reborn, and during the Cold War it crept along.  Charles de Gaulle stated in his Memoirs that “Europe by confederation of its nations, can and must be for the well-being of its people, become the greatest political, economic and military and cultural power that ever existed.”[ii] From the mid- to late 1980s, a spark rekindled, and the fall of the Berlin Wall added fuel to the fire.  The end of the Cold War and the beginning of the New World Order marked a new era for Europe.

 

Based on what is happening in the news, it looks like the financial crisis might give the EU the final push it needs into the next state of its existence which the Bible already forecasts.



 

 

 

 

The Coming One World Government

 

A single world system is not new to man.  Genesis records the historical account of the Tower of Babel.  Mankind in ancient times united their efforts to build a tower to reach into the heavens.  God declared that “now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them,” and confounded their language.  Give man too much power, and he becomes dangerous.  A unified world with a single world government will be a modern-day Tower of Babel.

It is paradoxical that as the world grows more populated, it becomes more of a single unit.  To date, we see the skeletal form of a one-world system, and can speculate on its continuing evolution.  The world is breaking up into regional economic groupings.  Pat Buchanan commented that “in the New World Order, rules are set by west and east globalists.”[i] These policy makers think in terms of international law as evidenced by the European Union federalists.  World institutions will gain more power, and govern in their respective areas with the Antichrist as head of the European Union leading the world into oneness.

A one-world government will become man’s final attempt at creating a utopian society that excludes God and deifies man.  The one individual who will advocate and pursue this ideology will be man’s greatest enemy.  The world federation will not “open the history of the human race,” but rather end it.

The process of globalization is occurring through the natural order of events.  At present, the world is fragmented.  The European Union will act as the cornerstone for uniting the world, in the same way Jesus is the “chief cornerstone” of the church.  None of this is coincidental; we know that the Antichrist’s empire here on earth mimics the Kingdom of God.
