“Shadows or Foreshadows of the Antichrist”
by Art Sadlier   
February 14th, 2010

Daniel foretells us that Antichrist will arise in Europe and come to power over a Revived Roman Empire. I believe that neither the Revived Roman Empire nor the Antichrist will be revealed until after the Church is raptured, therefore anything we suggest here is only speculation. We  who are a part of the body of Christ will not be here when Antichrist and the Revived Roman Empire are revealed and therefore cannot identify the person who might be the Antichrist.

Having said all of that, it is still possible the foreshadowing of this scenario might be discernable to the alert student of the prophetic scriptures when the time approaches.  We read in Luke 21:28, "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."

In recent days the EU has elected a permanent, powerful President. They have placed in this man's hands great power and authority. That would seem to me to be the office of Antichrist. The man appointed to this office is a man called Herman Van Rompuy, this man is perhaps, at the least, the forerunner of Antichrist.

In a news item, under the following title, "EU President`s Secret Bid for Economic Power", we have the following quote, "The new President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy, is using the financial crisis sweeping the eurozone to launch an audacious grab for power over national budgets, leaked documents reveal."

In another headline we read,  “Europe's Choice: Dismantle the Euro, or Cede All National Sovereignty to Brussels”  The Stage seems to be set for the EU nations to surrender all their national sovereignty to the new President of the EU.

Incredible as it seems, the stage may be in the process of being set for the rise to power of the Revived Roman Empire and the Antichrist. If this is a correct assessment, the rapture is near at hand!

In another ominous development that seems to signal the soon arrival of the Revived Roman Empire, the following headline states, “German Foreign Minister Backs Idea of European Army” The article went on to say, "Germany supports the creation of a European army in the long term so that the EU can be a global player", Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle told the Munich Security Conference on Saturday. We are told that the armies of the 27 EU nations, if united under one command, would be the largest army in the world.

What the Spirit of God foretold 2600 years ago is now unfolding before our very eyes. I am reminded of the words of Jesus to another generation, a generation that could not discern the signs of the times. "....O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but ye cannot discern the signs of the times?"
