Many Europeans leaders believe French President Sarkozy wants to continue as permanent President of the EU when it comes time for him to give up his term in the rotating presidency of the EU.
Many are saying Nicholas Sarkozy wants to be the Emperor of Europe and his aides are working actively on ways to perpetuate his EU leadership into 2009 and beyond by using the Eurozone, NATO, the New Mediterranean Union, Middle East Diplomacy, and the lead role in European-Russian discussions. "Super Sarko", as European leaders refer to President Sarkozy, has called a number of summits during his hyperactive EU presidency and has pushed for a global solution for the financial crisis that the world is now facing.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The desire of French President Sarkozy to be Emperor of Europe is a page out of Bible prophecy for the Last Days.
During his tenure as temporary President of the EU French President Sarkozy has been very active in his leadership of the EU amid the international economic crisis that has hit almost every nation of the world. The US and the EU have been especially hard hit and President Sarkozy has led several financial summits looking for a solution to this global crisis. In fact, a number of times, the French President has joined and even led the call for a worldwide economic structure to bring this world out of this crisis and prevent another. Now, it seems that Sarkozy, who has relished his role as leader of the EU, wants to be the Emperor of Europe.
Bible prophecy does indeed call for a powerful leader to lead the revived Roman Empire into the future. This leader will be the one who will bring peace to the Middle East and setup a global financial system, Daniel 7, Revelation 13:16-17 and Revelation 18.
With the EU as at least the infrastructure for the revived Roman Empire and the presidency of the EU as similar to the leadership role of the Antichrist, it does seem that President Sarkozy's desire to be Emperor of Europe sets the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
