This page documents the core theory behind which this website operates. All of the blog posts here are written with the following information in mind. It describes the rise of the European Union, a ten nation confederacy, a 7 year covenant with Israel, and an influential man connected to these events.
1948 - ISRAEL REBORN
Who has ever heard of such things?Who has ever seen things like this?Can a country be born in a dayor a nation be brought forth in a moment?Yet no sooner is Zion in laborthan she gives birth to her children. (Isaiah 66:8a NIV)
"...a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety." (Ezekiel 38:8b, NIV)
1957 - ROMAN EMPIRE REBORN
Event: The European Economic Community (EEC) is founded with the Treaty of Rome. This organization eventually became, through a variety of treaties, what the European Union is today. The EU now has some features of statehood, including one currency, border free travel, a Commission that proposes laws, and a Parliament.
Significance: Daniel 2 & 7 talks both about four empires that will rise to power one after another. Bible scholars are in general agreement that the fourth kingdom is the Roman Empire. However, Daniel 7 says that the Messiah will come on the clouds of heaven, destroy the fourth kingdom and set up an eternal empire. Since Christ destroys the Roman Empire at the Second Coming, it is required for the old Roman Empire to come back into existence, prior to the Second Coming.
"He gave me this explanation: 'The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it." (Daniel 7:23 NIV)
"...there will be a revival of the Roman Empire." -John MacArthur, 1980
1995 - 10 HORNS OF THE BEAST
Significance: The Bible predicts that a group of ten kings will be part of the end times Roman Empire. In the Bible, the ten kings are represented as ten horns on the head of a beast. Many Bible teachers have expected this group of ten kings to be a confederacy of ten nations in the area of the old Roman Empire.
“He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom." (Daniel 7:23-24a, NIV)
“formation of the revived Roman Empire composed of a ten-nation confederacy.” -John Walvoord (1967), former President of Dallas Theological Seminary
1998 - DOCUMENT 666
Event: Document 666 at the Vienna European Council recommends the creation of a new position, called the EU "High Representative." In June 1999, Javier Solana was appointed to be the new EU High Representative. He was also made the Secretary General of the 10-nation Western European Union. These positions didn't have much legal power, but relied on the influence of the officeholder.
"While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it." (Daniel 7:8a, NIV)
2000 - RECOMMENDATION 666
Event: Recommendation 666 proposes that the WEU "crisis management" functions be transferred to a newly created EU committee, under the leadership of Javier Solana.
Significance: The Bible states that the ten kings have one purpose, and give their authority to the beast. The "beast" is a term that can refer interchangeably to the Antichrist or his kingdom. Recommendation 666 proposed that Solana be given the ability to chair the Political and Security Committee, which directs "crisis management" military operations.
"The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast." (Revelation 17:12-13, NIV)"The Council declaration states that in the event of the EU fulfilling its responsibility in the area of the Petersberg [crisis management] tasks, ‘the WEU as an organisation would have completed its purpose’." - EEAS Website, emphasis added
2006 - SOLANA SUBDUES THREE KINGS
Event: Solana overcomes the EU3 and becomes the face of the EU in the Iran negotiations. On 06/06/06, Solana was seen across major news outlets presenting a deal to the Iranians that they could potentially accept.
Significance: The EU3 (United Kingdom, France, and Germany) originally left Solana behind and completely disregarded him, trying to dictate EU foreign policy on their own. Initially, they were accused of a power grab, which upset other EU member countries. Shortly thereafter, Solana was included in the negotiations. Over time, Solana began working with the EU3, and gradually became leader of the group. He eventually became the face and voice of the EU to the world.
"During his time in office, Solana established himself as a key negotiator and speaker for the EU on the subject of Iran's nuclear capabilities." - Der Spiegel
As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. (Daniel 7:24, NIV)
While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. (Daniel 7:8a, NIV, emphasis added)
"But in the original text, it is not nearly so violent. It expresses, rather, a pushing out, as if three are growing, and as one comes up, it just gradually squeezes its way through until it becomes prominent. It actually refers to a gradual replacement as the new pushes out the old, and the old gradually fades away. It is not a catastrophe. It is progressive." - John MacArthur, 1980
2007 - 7-YEAR TREATY WITH ISRAEL
Event: The EU establishes its relationship with Israel and many other countries on the basis of a 7-year program called the European Neighborhood and Partnership Instrument. This confirms the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) for seven years. Javier Solana and Chris Patten initially conceived of the European Neighborhood Policy in a letter to the European Commission in 2002. This framework started in 2007-2013, and is cyclically renewed every seven years, corresponding to the EU's budget.
Significance: The Bible states that the Antichrist will make a treaty with Israel (and perhaps many other nations), for a period of seven years. Commentators are virtually unanimous that one "seven" represents seven years. Furthermore, many scholars have expected this to be a contract guaranteeing protection to Israel. In Javier Solana's new report, he recommends adding a military component to the ENP toolbox. This would enable it to launch military operations to stabilize the Middle East. It is likely that the Antichrist will use the ENP framework when he makes his final seven year contract with Israel.
“And he, (the Roman prince, head of the revived Roman empire) shall confirm the covenant with many (of the people of Israel) for one week (seven years)…” -Herbert Lockyer (1964)
****Solana Leaves Politics for Five Years*****2010 - "WORLD GOVERNMENT"
Event: Solana gives a speech at ESADE business school, explicitly calling for "world government." He routinely writes articles to this day, in which he calls for the improvement of institutions of "global governance."
Significance: Solana has been a long time supporter of "global governance" structures, as well as even going so far as to call for a "world government." The Bible predicts that, at the height of his rule, the Antichrist will have authority over every person on earth. Hence, many end times movies depict the Antichrist as the leader of a global government.
The EU is “some kind of laboratory of what a world government system could be” -Javier Solana, 2010
"...national authorities must engage with one another to improve global governance." Javier Solana, 2016, article "Taming the Populists"
2012 - A DIVIDED KINGDOM
Event: The European Sovereign Debt Crisis threatens the very existence of the Euro, with many financial analysts fearing a total breakup of the eurozone, and the EU as well.
Significance: The Bible predicts that the end times Roman empire will be a "divided kingdom." The EU is well known for being very divided and inefficient in its decision making processes. The Eurozone Crisis (2009-2013) and the UK's non-binding referendum to leave the bloc in 2016 all show how badly the EU is marred by division.
Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. (Daniel 2:41; NIV, emphasis added)
****Solana Comeback Phase Begins****
MAR. 2015 - MORE UNION IN EUROPEAN DEFENCE
: Javier Solana chairs a group of experts, devising a plan to make a "European Defence Union." They argued that, in the same way several EU countries are united by the euro, several EU countries could have military unity as well. Solana's report recommends an EU military headquarters, EU military operations in neighboring countries, and increased financing in the military sector. After chairing the report, Solana went on a "road show" through several European capitals, presenting his defense union plan.
Significance: The Bible is very clear that the Antichrist will be a military conqueror. Daniel 11 says that the Antichrist honors no "god" above himself, except for the "god of fortresses" which many commentators believe refers to military strength. Furthermore, Solana advises military action in the Middle East and North Africa, are the same regions the Bible says the Antichrist will fight his wars in the end times. Finally, according to Revelation 17, the Antichrist obtains his authority through a consensus of ten kings, who have a "common purpose" (NASB) and give their kingdom to the Antichrist. The ten-nation WEU already dissolved into the EU, citing that the EU now has a common policy on defence, namely the "Common Security and Defence Policy." Nevertheless, those ten countries have yet to completely give up their sovereignty to the EU, especially in the area of defense. This report advises that the EU's "Common Security and Defence Policy" be made more effective.
And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire. For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled. (Revelation 17:16-18; NASB)
"I will put all of the energies that I have left to push forward this process" of European defence integration. -Javier Solana (via CEPS Twitter page)
"This is a process. The sooner we start, the sooner it can be completed. If we don’t start, we will never finish." - Javier Solana, article "A Wake Up Call for a European Defence Union"
JUN. 2016 - SOLANA ADVISES EU PARLIAMENT
Event: Solana was asked by the European Parliament to provide guidance on a "White Book" (policy proposal) for a European Defence Union. As a result of this, he drafted an 80 page document for the European Parliament, advising them of how to construct a White Book for A European Defense Union. He then presented to the European Parliament, and was warmly welcomed there on 06/16/16.
Significance: Solana's influence over EU politics is rapidly increasing. The likelihood of him seeking a career opportunity in this domain seem to be increasing.
"We have to do it... It would be stupid not to do it." - Javier Solana, European Parliament 06/16/16
NOV. 2016 - EU PARLIAMENT ADOPTS SOLANA PLAN
Event: European Parliament adopts a resolution calling for a European Defence Union. They also agree with Solana's recommendation that the EU begin a "White Book" process. Finally, the resolution states that the European Defence Union ought to be established for the EU's next 7-year budget (Multiannual Financial Framework).
Significance: In Solana's original European Defence Union plan, he proposes the EU act as a "security provider" to stabilize the Middle East and North Africa. Many prophecy commentators have believed that the Antichrist will use the 7-year contract to guarantee protection for Israel. Solana desires the EU to act as a "security provider" in the Middle East. Furthermore, Parliament members want established his European Defence Union for the EU's next 7-year budget period (2021-2027). The desire for the EU to act as a security provider, the 7-year component of the proposal, and the existing EU's 7-year ENP agreement with Israel, may all eventually merge to be the the Antichrist's 7-year treaty,
