One of Tony Blair's last acts as Prime Minister of Great Britain was to sign the new European "Constitution", effectively committing the nation to handing over yet more of its sovereignty to the European Union. The Prime Minister gave the impression that he was opposed to giving Brussels more control over British foreign policy, openly opposing the creation of the role of an EU Foreign Minister (or at least its title) and giving of the EU a permanent seat at the UN Security Council. But according to an EU official, and according to EU Constitution author Giscard d'Estaing, the main text of the "treaty" is essentially unchanged from the original draft of the Constitution. Conservative MP William Hague has lambasted the Labour government for paving the way for the creation of a federal European state, and has called on the new Prime Minister Gordon Brown to permit a public referendum on the new treaty.
Quote: "Provisions, drawn word for word from the old constitution, giving the EU "foreign minister" speaking rights from Britain's and France's UN seats will be included in a draft treaty to be presented to a meeting of foreign ministers on Monday, diplomats have confirmed. "When the Union has defined a position on a subject which is on the United Nations Security Council agenda, those member states which sit on the Security Council shall request that the Union Minister for Foreign Affairs be asked to present the Union's position," the text states.
As Solana-watcher Constance Cumbey states, this provision for the EU to take the seat of Britain or France at the United Nations will give Europe a much greater presence on the world stage. Students of Bible Prophecy have long predicted the rise of a final world empire in the form of a European super-state, hundreds of years before the European Union even existed. And the Bible seems to indicate that it will be from this empire that the Antichrist will eventually emerge. We don't know whether Javier Solana will be the man or not, but what we are seeing now is certainly leading up to a time when one man will be able to exercise global authority over the whole earth.
People are generally not interested in such events. They are happy as long as nothing affects how they live their lives. But soon Satan will engineer things in such a way that the whole world will cry out for a man to deliver them and give them peace. The rise in "global terrorism" - something that was virtually unheard of before the year 2000, growing religious "fundamentalism", the disruption of global weather patterns, the coming economic collapse of America, conflict in half a dozen Middle East states... these things are in the news everyday. Satan has his man waiting in the isles, but he can't make a move until we are out of here.
When Christ comes for His Church, will you be caught up to be with Him where He is, or will you be left behind to face the wrath of a righteous God? Either you are for Christ or you are against Him, there is no middle ground. The Bible states that all of those who are not saved will worship the Antichrist, and will seal their doom in the lake of fire...
Trust in Jesus Christ for salvation today, He is merciful but His Spirit will not always strive with man.
