In yesterday’s commentary I mentioned the importance of perspective in Bible study. In order to correctly understand the strange images found in the New Testament book of Revelation, we need to be able to see things from both God’s and the Apostle John’s perspective.
A survey published by the European Commission reveals something interesting. Seven out of 10 people living in the 10 new countries joining the European Union next year want a common foreign and security policy run by a strong foreign minister. Read about it here.
The moment I heard about this so-called “Geneva Accord,” I suspected a European Union connection. And sure enough, according to this report, it appears this peace plan negotiated by the Israeli left was drafted under British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s sponsorship. Read about it here.
I can hear the words coming from that back room in Brussels now.
The United States may finally be waking up. As I’ve been reporting, British Prime Minister Tony Blair surprised everybody be throwing in with the anti-American EU factions who want to create an independent military command outside NATO. And, the Bush administration is reacting by calling for an emergency meeting of NATO on Monday. Read about it here.
Yesterday I said something big may be going on in Europe. Well, as far as fulfillment of Bible prophecy is concerned, it may be bigger than I thought — it may be huge!
Today’s commentary should be of special interest to those who have read Recommendation 666 or have spent time here at FulfilledProphecy.com.
Feeling their oats from the recent agreement to set aside their differences and work together, the European Union’s big three military powers decided to resolve the crisis looming over Iran’s nuclear program.
In my last commentary I said I agreed with the EU’s High Representative, Javier Solana. When Solana was asked what shape he thought this new, super EU would finally take, Solana said the EU would become a super power, but not a superstate.
It appears the Inter-governmental Conference is going in the direction we students of Bible prophecy suspected. According to Radio Free Europe, this new, super EU may have a weak presidency and a strong foreign minister.
Indications for the future of Israel aren’t good. As Israel’s top political leader plays hardball with the Palestinians and international community, Israel’s top military officer pops up a gentle floater.
