The European Parliament President Hans-Gert Pottering has stated he is in favour of the creation of a UN-like organization that would comprise of world religions rather than nation states. He made the statement during a meeting with prominent Israeli Rabbis on Wednesday. Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Yona Metzger was the first to propose the idea of a UN of religions, which would fester... sorry "foster" peace through dialogue. Pottering's support for such a body is the first time a political figure has shown real interest in taking concrete steps towards achieving the idea.
Quote: ""I envision the body being based in the holy city of Jerusalem, which is sacred to the three monotheistic religions. But disputes over its location should not delay the establishment of the interfaith UN," Metzger added.
The Bible states in the book of Revelation that a religious system will ride the beast during the first three and a half years of the tribulation period. Many people have different ideas as to what this system is. Some think it to be Roman Catholicism, with its Babylonian links. The Catholic Church has ruled Europe throughout the centuries, and some of the symbolism mentioned in Revelation 17 matches that of Rome. But halfway through the tribulation period, this Mother of Harlots will be thrown off the Beast's back. If Rome is the city which sits on seven mountains as described in Revelation, then the Vatican will be destroyed by fire (Revelation 17:16) and the Papal system will collapse. Even Catholics themselves believe we may be only one Pope away from the Antichrist himself, but that's another story. In the middle of the tribulation period, there will be a war in heaven, and Satan will be cast down to earth (Revelation 12:12). He will be very angry, and will enter the Antichrist and persecute God's people. The Antichrist will then sit in the Temple in Jerusalem and claim to be God (2nd Thessalonians 2:4). A False Prophet will be raised up, who will call on all people to worship the Antichrist or be killed. As we have seen today, the setting up of global religious body is hastening the day when people of all religions will unite under one man, based in Jerusalem.
