The EU is ready for more military action under the EU flag in 2007

The European Union's (EU) top diplomat, Javier Solana, stated in Brussels recently that after the EU military success in the Congo this last year, the EU is ready for more military action under the Eu flag in 2007 with Kosovo, Bosnia, Lebanon, and Afghanistan at the top of its defense agenda for the next six months.

The EU is now is now ready for the beginning of a European army, a permanently standing EU force that could number in the thousands and is already replacing NATO forces in some areas of our world. Apart from building up battle group capacity, the German EU presidency will focus on managing the EU dominated force in Lebanon, the peacekeeping force to be a buffer between Hezbollah and Israel.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The buildup of the EU military forces to develop a standing battle group in Europe is in sink with the scenario found in Bible prophecy for the revival of the old Roman Empire.

For several years now, the EU has been working towards putting in place a military operation for its member states, at first as a peacekeeping force, but ultimately as a permanent, combat ready fighting force. A key component to this ambition is the major peacekeeping force administering the cease fire in Lebanon. This report sounds as if it is directly from the pages of Bible prophecy.

Daniel 7:23-25 reveals that the revived Roman Empire will emerge out of the Gentile world of Europe with the Antichrist as its leader. Daniel 7:38 says this Antichrist will honor the god of forces, a phrase describing the power of a military force. Revelation 17 prophesies of the revived Roman Empire as the leader of world events during the first half of the Tribulation Period.

The efforts to develop a standing army in Europe beginning in 2007 is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
