JD: Rob, so I thought we’d spend some time discussing together how the European Union seems to be at least the infrastructure for the Revived Roman Empire, that is a prophetic term from the book of Daniel, and Chapter 7 in particular, when the old Roman Empire will come back to power and play a very key role during the 7 year Tribulation period. So, why do you say that the European Union may well be at least the beginning infrastructure for the Revived Roman Empire?
RC: Well I think there’s probably two prime reasons. One is the countries involved in the European Union; there are 27 countries that are now members of it. All of them trace their history back to the ancient Roman Empire, in fact, you can almost draw a continuous line of being parts of Empires from the Roman days right to the European Unions. In addition, you have the very unique form of the government of the European Union, which Daniel describes one day will be a diverse government; he says the final empire in the book of Daniel, diverse meaning unique in history; something that’s never existed before.
The European Union government is a government, what is called supra national; it’s a group of 27 men and woman who are not elected; they decide what happens for the European Unions in there internal discussions. There is no voting for them there is no check and balance of them. It’s merely a group of commissioners, their called, that run the government. So we have a government that is unique in history that matches Daniel, and we have a geographic relationship to the ancient Roman Empire as well.
JD: Dr. Rob Congdon with the prophetic insight into the political activities of the European Union.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
In the last days the old Roman Empire will be revived to a place of world leadership.
The ancient Jewish prophets called for a revival of the old Roman Empire, in particular Daniel, in Daniel 7:7&8 and then following that up in verses 23 & 24 helps us to recognize that scenario.
As Dr. Congdon mentioned the European Union of today meets all qualifications to fulfill that prophecy for a Revived Roman Empire. In God’s scenario for the end times the Roman Empire must be revived to lead the world into and through the Tribulation period. The Revived Roman Empire will be a major player politically in the last days.
