Emmanuel Macron’s coalition of 10 Nations

Postby Ready1 on Fri May 04, 2018 12:21 pm

PARIS — Impatient with German foot-dragging on defense, French President Emmanuel Macron will bring together a 10-nation coalition of the willing next month designed to prepare European armed forces to take action together in emergencies, and to bind Britain into military cooperation as it leaves the EU.

Defense ministers of France, the U.K., Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, Denmark and Estonia will sign a letter of intent in Paris in June, officials told me, pledging to develop a common strategic culture, share analysis and foresight on trouble spots that may require intervention and work to coordinate their forces for future operations.

Macron outlined the idea in his keynote Sorbonne speech on European integration last September, calling for a common European intervention force, defense budget and doctrine for action in contingencies where the United States and NATO may not get involved. France wants to recruit allies that could help share its military burden especially in Africa, where it intervened alone in Mali in 2012 to prevent Islamist militants seizing control of a weak state.

Frustrated by the big-tent, low-ambition start to the European Union’s so-called Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) in defense agreed last year at Germany’s insistence, the French leader is pressing ahead with a small core of like-minded nations outside EU and NATO institutional structures.

The Brussels Treaty of the WEU
ARTICLE IV
If any of the High Contracting Parties should be the object of an armed attack in Europe, the other High Contracting Parties will, in accordance with the provisions of Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, afford the Party so attacked all the military and other aid and assistance in their power.

The following nation were the High Contracting Parties:
Belgium
Luxembourg
France
Netherlands
Germany
Portugal (1990)
Greece (1995)
Spain (1990)
Italy
United Kingdom

UN Charter Article 51:
Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of collective or individual self-defense if an armed attack occurs against a member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to maintain international peace and security.

Only two differences in countries list
WEU had Luxembourg and Greece instead of Denmark and Estonia.

This is an interesting Article - and thanks Keith making the connection with the WEU.

Just wanna make a few points...…

1st - I believe that the information in this Article very strongly suggests that it may relate to End Time Prophecy.

2nd - Prophecy is very often hindsight.

3rd - Let's not forget the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP)

Now, tying all this in... As some of you know when many began to take a hard look at the ENP - it lasted for a period of 7 years (2007 -2014) and when the "midpoint" came in 2010 - things did not pan out as they thought it would, and most abandoned this theory and chalked it up as a farce.

But there are potential problems with abandoning the ENP Theory. One problem is - is that it is a very "literal" Covenant with Many, and consecutive 7 year periods of funding have been provided to keep it alive since it's inception.
The current one runs from: 2014 - 2021 - and the current EU High Representative's term ends in 2019. Folks, the ENP hasn't gone anywhere. Another problem with abandoning this theory is that it has fit Bible Prophecy like a glove - in that 10 Nations were established with the WEU; they gave up their sovereignty and/or authority to the EU Beast System in 2011 (Revelation 17:12-13), yet this BEAST SYSTEM IS attempting to build an EU Military.

Also, lest we forget..... when the ENP was established a man was selected as High Representative after the 10 WEU Nations came together; this man could be identified as the "little horn" mentioned in Daniel 7. Under this policy Article 666 gave him his identity; and Recommendation 666 gave him the authority to convene emergency powers.
Now ask yourself: "Is this a coincidence?" One should also question why the WEU gave up it's power, and why the ENP still continues to remain alive with 7 year funding increments?

So, in closing - although we have to be very careful not to look at daily newspaper Articles to determine if we are in the Last Days or not, we do have to pay attention to FACTS which corroborate with Scripture. Lets do be careful not to abandon things so quickly, especially when there is so much overwhelming evidence before us. Now for the record, my views have somewhat changed as far as looking for a future final 7 year period of time. I believe that Scripture is quite clear that a coming Antichrist will appear on the World scene, but only for 3.5 years. I'm not looking for a magical airlift to Heaven prior to him being revealed - Scripture very clearly refutes that notion - See: 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4.

this is a strange group of 10. Everyone able to pick out the one country that doesn't fit? Estonia. It's way off up there next to Russia, almost like a toe in the door, just waiting to get slammed. I can see why they would want some help, but I don't see why the others would link themselves to a trip-wire for WWIII.

The 10.

Rev 17:12-13
12 The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. 13 These have one [h]purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast.


Just before the description of the 10 horns we have a description of the seven heads.

Rev 17:9-11
9 Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, 10 and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. 11 The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction.

Interestingly, the seven heads have two different meaning. The first is "seven Mountains on which the woman sits" The second is "and they are seven kings ...".

I do not know which are the seven kings but the seven hills are:
1,2) Bosnia and Herzegovina
3) Serbia
4) Montenegro
5) Albania
6) Kosovo
7) Macedonia

Why is this important? Because the seven hills are sat upon by the harlot, the harlot and the beast wage war. The ten kings [countries] that make up the beast from the Abyss wage war on the countries that make up the harlot. So, when we identify the ten countries that have the military alliance, we know the beast countries, the other EU countries who are not part of the military alliance form the Harlot.

So, Why do we look for a 10 nation alliance in the EU instead of an EU Army?

The EU has had and continues to have off budget military funding where the funding is provided by member states.
Much of this has to do with member states wanting to keep their own armies and not create an EU army.
The idea is to keep each members military power to themselves and share it for the common good of the EU when they see fit.


Changes in EU military funding organization to take over and enhance current methods.

https://eeas.europa.eu/headquarters/headquarters-homepage/46285/european-peace-facility-factsheet_en

The EPFwill replace the African Peace Facility and the Athena mechanism. It will continue financing actions currently supported through these instruments[1], but will allow the EU to overcome geographic and thematic limitations, building on the experience of the last years.

The EPF is not designed to finance expenditure that is eligible for funding under the Union's budget.
Support to partners under the EPF will pursue EU foreign and security objectives, as refelcted in the Treaty on the EU. It will be subject to strict controls, including conformity with democratic principles and human rights standards.
Consistency will be ensured between the actions financed under the EPF, and other actions undertaken within the CFSP or other instruments of the Union's external action, including relevant Capacity Building for Security and Development (CBSD) mechanisms.
