A new European treaty is being produced which is hoped to be finalized early next year and then ratified before the Mid 2014 EU parliamentary elections. However with the New Treay ready and up for ratification by member countries; there may be deadlock in the ratification process as many nations will not agree on its content.
Events may move more quickly or slowly and it will be God’s timing as to when the Abomination will be set up and bring this New Europe together. Remember this is a dual track along with the coming war and peace talks in the Middle East.
The New Treaty is to have a European president, a European security system with member states contributing their militaries; a new Foreign Affairs system with united foreign affairs under one leader; and a new centrally controlled Financial System.
It is highly likely that many European countries will not be willing to give up the sovereinty necessary to accept membership and ratify the New Treaty.
More could become clear on the direction that the EU is taking at the summit of EU member state leaders on 18-19 October when Herman Van Rompuy, the president of the European Council, will deliver his interim plan for political, fiscal and banking union.
Merkel, Germany’s chancellor, wants leaders to agree at their summit in Brussels on 13-14 December to hold a first meeting of a convention on a new treaty, reports the Germany weekly magazine Der Spiegel.
A treaty convention, made up of representatives of the European Parliament and European Commission, as well as of member state governments, is needed to draft a new treaty.
Merkel sees a new EU treaty as necessary to enshrine in law the sharing of sovereignty that she deems necessary in return for the pooling of debt that is being demanded by other eurozone countries.
However, it could be a divisive move by the German chancellor who will be faced with opposition to a new treaty from many countries . Germany is likely to want the European Central Bank to be made responsible for scrutinising member states’ budgets under the new rules.
Scripture tells us that no agreement can be concluded and ratified until a miracle working final false prophet called “A Desolating Abomination” is set up in the Papacy, Rev 13, 2 Thess; and calls for the new European Order; which will amount to a revival of the unHoly Roman Empire.
Once this false prophet is set up in the Vatican [Due to the advancing age and health problems of Benedict this is now highly likely to be a NEW pope], and he uses his influence to set up the New Europe, he will go to the Holy Place within 75 days of the date he is set up and the tribulation will begin as he visits the Holy Mount and Peace and Safety is proclaimed to be achieved.
It is an interesting note that IF this abomination were to be set up around 6 Oct 2013, then he would go to the Holy Place around Dec 25 2013 to declare peace in the Middle East.
The scriptures also tell us that ultimately only ten nations will join this system, and that they will give their power to a single leader called the “Beast”.
This “Beast” is described as a man of intimidating appearance who understands “dark things” [occult, demonic and things hidden] and is possessed by a demon.
An interesting question is how this man gains his position as president or emperor of the new Europe.
The New Treaty is intended to create a centralized federal Europe and will therefore include a powerful presidential office.
While the details of the New Treaty are still being finalized in the Draft; we are told in scripture that ten kings [rulers] will give their authority to this president [Beast]. This clearly implies that the ten rulers, or their representatives, at their instructions, actually elect [choose] the “Beast”, rather than any kind of EU election of its new president.
Those countries not ratifing the New Treaty would of course have no say and no candidate for the office, and only the leaders of the ten ratifing nations would select their collective leader. An existing president who’s nation does not ratify the New Treaty would not remain in his office. and would be replaced.
Right now the EU has four presidents and in the New Treaty, only one will be made supreme over the New Europe.
