Last Friday, one of my care group members shared excitingly about my Pastor's recent sharing on Daniel 9 (of which I have yet to listen to)...so I thought may be this NEW EU President would be an appropriate first blog...
Just last week, EU finally has a President. And the guy is from Belgium, the current PM of Belgium.
What makes the story so interesting especially among Bible prophecy circles is cuz of these 4 verses from Daniel 9:
"Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place. Know therefore and understand that from the going out of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again with squares and moat, but in a troubled time. And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed. And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator."
This "Prince who is to come" is supposedly THE Anti-Christ who is to come at the end of the age. He will be the one who finaaaaaaaaaaally could put "an end" to the troubles in the Middle East.
So is Mr. Herman Van Rompuy the Anit-Christ? ;)
Well, I dunno. Most likely not. But what interest me MORE than Mr. Rompuy is the fact that this EU Presidency - this position, this title - is now a reality.
This could indeed be the beginning of the end :)
