EU leaders have signed landmark treaty

A treaty that is expected to greatly alter the operations of the 27-member states of the EU has been signed in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon and this treaty which creates an EU president is a replacement for the EU Constitution which was abandoned following French and Dutch opposition.

The treaty, a slimmed down version of the European Constitution, is meant to ease decision making by scrapping national vetos and developing a foreign policy chief with thousands of diplomats and officials.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The historic signing of the Lisbon Treaty which makes the EU a political, economic, military power with a powerful leader is a precursor to the prophetic scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.

The year long celebration in 2007 of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome that established the European economic community, a forerunner of the EU, was crowned when the leaders of the 27-member states of the EU meeting in Lisbon, Portugal signed the Lisbon Treaty. The Lisbon Treaty also sets in place a permanent powerful president that will lead this supra state into the future as a major geopolitical player on the world scene.

With the signing of the Lisbon Treaty, the EU is in position, with its new permanent leader, to be the absolute infrastructure for the revived Roman Empire that is called for in Bible prophecy for the Last Days. The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel wrote prophetically of this scenario 2,500 years ago when he called for a revival of the old Roman Empire, geographically the EU of today, an event that would take place in the days just prior to the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, Daniel 7:7, 24. Daniel's prophecy also revealed a powerful personality who would lead this revived Roman Empire, Daniel 7:8, 24-28. This leader would be a major player in the Middle East peace process, Daniel 9:27.

This historic signing of the Lisbon Treaty by the EU leaders has indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
