This website holds that the final 7-years prior to Christ's Millennial reign on earth (Dan. 9:27) could start as soon as 2021. This is due to the fact that the European Union has a cyclical 7-year program with Israel. Second, this website holds that the European Union is the revived Roman Empire predicted in the Bible. Third, this website holds that Javier Solana is the top candidate for Antichrist. This is due to the fact that he fulfilled at least 3 very specific prophecies about the Antichrist. Nevertheless, this theory seemed dashed to the ground, when Javier Solana "retired" in late 2009. Yet surprisingly, as of 2015, he seems to be in the position to make a surprise comeback at the age of 75. You can learn all about this and the evidence behind it at the video or article overview at this link here.
How EU Horse Trading Works
This article will discuss political forces in Spain which may allow Solana to become a potential nominee for an EU position. Yet, before diving into this, we need to discuss how EU horse trading works.
Whenever there is a top position at the EU level, it is the heads of state and government that put forward nominees. Even though the nominees do not represent the nominating country, but work on behalf of the EU, they are still nominated in this way. This entails lots of "horse trading." For example, if there are not enough women in the top posts, too many Italians, too many northerners, too many conservatives, the EU leaders jostle with one another and make trade offs as to who gets what, to maintain a "balance" of some kind.
Consequently, when making all these trade offs, the EU ends up being very undemocratic in it's selection of the top leadership roles. Most of this happens every 5 years, whenever there is a new Commission. However, precipitating circumstances can cause it to happen at other times other than that. Speaking of which, it's summer break time in Brussels. Though it may be all quiet on the EU-front for a few weeks, it is merely the calm before the storm. There are a lot of exciting things coming up.

Annual Bailout Fund Meeting
European Union Schedule of Excitement
September 22 - 3 month deadline for agreeing to PESCO criteria is up. These criteria basically determine who is eligible to participate in the EU's new defense club.
September 24 - German federal election. Merkel is likely to win, but even if Schulz does win, he is probably even more pro-integration than Merkel. Once the election happens, Merkel and Macron (or Schulz and Macron) can further develop the EU agenda without fear of the electorate.
October /November - Top job jostling for Eurogroup Presidency begins. The Eurogroup president leads meetings over the finance ministers of eurozone countries, and presides over the EU's powerful bailout fund, the ESM.
December 15-16 - Is likely going to be another important milestone for European defence, since they are making PESCO criteria and need to decide membership.
January 2018 - New Eurogroup President takes office
Early 2018 - Parliament and Council will have ratified European Defence Fund into law. A leadership structure will need to be agreed upon by then. Projects may begin at this point.
Early 2019 - First project of European Defence Fund will be able to start.
Late 2019 - Brand new European Commission. Juncker has already said he won't go for a second term. With the launch of the European Defence Fund, would be a good time to formally designate someone as defence commissioner.
High Profile Jostling in the Fall
In my last analysis, I talked about how Revelation 13 describes two beasts, one of whom controls the guns, and the other controls the money. We can see the embryo of these two beasts beginning to form, with the Eurogroup presidency on the money side, and the EDF/PESCO leader on the other.
Spain's finance minister, Luis de Guindos, has always wanted to the Eurogroup presidency. Nevertheless, when the Dutch ministers Eurogroup term ended after 2.5 years, they voted to keep him for another 2.5 years, much to de Guindos' chagrin.
Political Pain in Spain
Which brings us back to Antichrist candidate Solana. Since Javier Solana is from Spain, it behooves us to understand what internal forces are at work that could potentially get him nominated for some kind of EU position. Mariano Rajoy is the current prime minister, and is the leader of Spain's "Popular Party" (PP). Nevertheless, his re-election and coalition building process was particularly agonizing. Spain's Rajoy was caretaker prime minister for 314 days despite numerous inconclusive elections. Only when the Socialist party abstained from voting was he able to form a government. The Socialist party (PSOE), has had its own internal drama as well. The current party leader Pedro Sanchez was kicked out, only to return later.
Javier Solana has held various ministerial positions in the Spanish government as a PSOE member. He is considered "old guard" and has influence in that domain due to his past experience, despite not trying to influence the outcome too much. Nevertheless, his opinions about Spanish politics on Twitter carry a lot of weight. Long story short, it would be much easier for Solana to get nominated if there was a socialist government.
Sanchez with Podemos Leader Iglesias
666: Sanchez & Podemos Try to Team Up
Here, in this article, Solana acknowledges that Pedro Sanchez will be the next PSOE leader, and doesn't have any weird views on that subject.
When searching Twitter for stuff about the PSOE and Rajoy, this 2014 tweet from Solana came up. It talks about how the election of Pedro Sanchez drives polls into a tie with Rajoy's popular party. (Recall that Sanchez was party leader, was kicked out, then came back.)
This article, written on 06/06/16, talks about how PSOE has a fresh new progressive agenda with the comeback of PSOE leader, Pedro Sanchez. The picture below is one of Sanchez. I highlighted the 666.
This article hyperlinks to another article:
That link transforms into this one:
This article talks about how certain more radical left-wing groups opposes the new cooperation between the PSOE's Sanchez and the left-wing anti-austerity party Podemos. In other articles I have been seeing on Twitter, PSOE and Podemos are trying to work together on some legislation, despite having had difficulty in the past forming talks. One article I read said the goal is ultimately for PSOE and Podemos to have a government that can overthrow Rajoy.
With all this top job jostling, whoever is in charge of Spain is going to have an influence on who Spain nominates.
Spain Wants to Lead EU Defense Fund
Rajoy (PP) seems to be very interested in having Spain manage the European Defense Fund. B2 Le Club, quotes the Spanish Prime minister, Mariano Rajoy, below:
For the Spanish Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy , the historical fact is more " the launch of the European Defense Fund. A great advance. We are waiting for negotiations with the European Commission to see how these funds will be managed. This will help the domestic industry, especially SMEs . "" Europe of defense is one of the areas where we can move forward with great determination in the EU. " As for the PESCO, the launch " within a reasonable time " will " give the European Union the capacity to respond to challenges. "
The leader of the Spanish Popular Party also sang a little self-celebratory air. "Spain is one of the main instigators of this policy which seeks to give the EU a major strategic autonomy . He also pointed out that Madrid was " currently the first contributor " of CSDP missions. As for the battlegroups , which Spain has been contributing to for 10 years, we believe it is a useful instrument for resolving crises .In an interview Solana stated that Spain has lost weight in the world.
On Twitter, a socialist member of European Parliament stated that, in wake of the 1st anniversary of the Nice attacks in France, the EU needs police, intelligence, and defense to fight Jihad. He goes on to say that "Spain must lead that unit." Javier Solana retweeted it, which could be very telling.
I wonder what person in Spain is most qualified to "lead that unit?" I wonder who could be nominated?? Spain is very underrepresented in the top jobs. So if a post for leadership of the new EDF comes up, Spain could potentially be allowed to put forward a nominee.
Will a PSOE Government Nominate Solana?
The two big items that will be coming in the future is the Eurogroup presidency and likely the EDF/PESCO Chair. France feels underrepresented in Eurozone bodies, and the current EU commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Moscovici, would like the Eurogroup job. This is consistent with the EU Commission's wishes to merge the economic and finance commissioner job with the Eurogroup president.
If Spain doesn't get the eurozone portfolio, they will demand something. Perhaps with Sanchez as future Prime Minister of Spain, Solana will be put forward to lead the EU's new defense fund. Which is what all the 666 connections to the EDF would have us believe is very likely.
As far as Solana's interest, I don't see how he could say no, if asked. After all, in 2015 he said:
"I am a convinced European and I am absolutely committed to making the European adventure work" -Javier Solana, July 2015
"I will put all of the energies that I have left to push forward this process" of European defence integration. -Javier Solana (March 2015, via CEPS Twitter page)
Solana at EU Parliament Defense Subcommittee in 2016
Solana has been working on defense integration stuff, and even advised EU parliament on the subject. He is the perfect candidate.
One of my good friends says that, knowing what we know, the probability of Solana coming back is high. However, at the moment, it is "whispers and shadows" like they say in Lord of the Rings. Lot's of political intrigue. I can't wait until, Lord willing, there is a lot less political intrigue and simply facts on the table!
