“Western European Union (W.E.U.) is Plannimg to Disolve”
by Art Sadlier   
April 4th, 2010

 The Western European Union is planning to disolve itself. The following news report outlines the decision.

BRUSSELS, April 1 (Xinhua) -- The Western European Union (WEU) has been dissolved (is planning to) by its 10 member states after accomplishing "its historical role," the WEU presidency announced in a statement Wednesday.

"The WEU has therefore accomplished its historical role. In this light we the States Parties to the Modified Brussels Treaty have collectively decided to terminate the Treaty, thereby effectively closing the organization,"the statement said.

The WEU was founded in 1948 and currently has ten member states, including Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Britain.

The member states have tasked the presidency to end the organization's activities entirely by the end of June, 2011, the statement said.(unquote)

How does all of this relate to end time prophecy?  It seems unlikely to me that the WEU is not related to the ten nation confederacy of Daniel and Revelation.  Daniel tells us that in the last days a ten nation confederacy of nations will arise which will be a revival of the Old Roman Empire. In recent days the EU has stated that they are the revival of the Roman Empire. John tells us, Antichrist will come upon the scene and that the ten nations will give their power to him. "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast." Revelation 17: 12-13.

These ten nations  have one main purpose, as we see in verse 13, that purpose is to give their kingdoms over to Antichrist, notice the manner in which this will unfold. Daniel gives the manner in which this will take place, "I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things."  Daniel 7:8.  It would seem that the time for the the ten nations to give up their power is fast approaching, that would mean that the time for the appearance of Antichrist is also near at hand. Notice how this transfer of power is to occur, "And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; (does that 'fall' happen prior to the appearance of Antichrist), even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows." Daniel 7:20.  Before the transfer of the kingdom, three nations will fall away from the ten. This powerful man, the beast, will overpower three, as perhaps they will attempt to resist him, that will be an awesome display of power that would fit his description.

Both Germany and Britain have anounced that they are withdrawing from the WEU, that would be two horns fallen,  France could be the third.  "And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings."  Daniel 7:24. The subduing of these three nations will happen after the Beast comes on the scene, and will cement his power. The scenario that is now unfolding fits the prophetic scriptures perfectly. Time will tell just exactly how this will unfold, but before this scenario is completed, the rapture of the Church must take place. Therefore, a wait and see attitude does not fit this situation, the Church will be gone before we see how it works out!   It is later than you think!
