The Revived Roman Empire has been a dream for many European leaders, but none were able to resurrect the Roman marvel of antiquities. The European Union (EU) is the closest anyone has come, so are we seeing the end of the EU, or is the present situation of Brexit and increased nationalism merely a bump towards one of the major missing pieces of Biblical end-times prophecy…The reviving of the Roman Empire
Christians are increasingly seeing the converging signs of Biblical prophetic events happening, here are just a few of the major signs:
Israel revived from the nations.
Jerusalem would become a burdensome stone for the nations.
Global visual communications, making international events spoken of in the Bible literally possible, unlike any other time in recorded history.
Integrated digital monetary systems, making the mark of the beast literally possible.
Temple Mount Institute preparations for rebuilding the Jewish Temple, including the training of priest, Temple artefacts, and even raising red heifers for purification.
Reconstitution of the Sanhedrin, including the recent nomination of a High Priest.
The nearly global embrace of secular humanism, relativism, and hedonism, which is laying the foundation for a global leader to emerge and be worshipped.
Russia, Iran, and Turkey increasingly making an alliance, while militarily situated on the Northern border of Israel, making the increased likelihood of the fulfilment of the end-times Gog-Magog war, prophesied in Ezekiel 38 & 39, a very imminent possibility.
Man’s ability to destroy the world with weapons of fire, written during a time when horses and steel swords were the dominant weapons of warfare. Literally fulfilled with the post World War II invention of nuclear weapons.
The revival of the Roman Empire, the missing piece of end-times prophecy…Do we see its fulfillment occurring in the present day EU?
So What Is Happening In Europe?
Europeans seem to be waking up to the insanity of secular liberals globalist promises of a multicultural utopia, one that would enrich all European life, but the globalist multiculturalism has only brought higher taxes, more unemployment, and massive increases in crime and violence.
Many Europeans are now left feeling that their security, heritage, and culture is quickly eroding away. Many have had enough, increasingly they’re supporting nationalist candidates for political offices to counter the lefts globalist immigration policies. Europe is witnessing a sudden rise of nationalist parties and candidates throughout the EU. Many see this nationalism as a rejection of the socialist liberals rush towards cultural suicide.
How Did We Get To This Point?
It began with the Lisbon Treaty, an amendment of previous treaties, the initial one being the Treaty of Rome. The Lisbon Treaty became the legal foundation for the current European Union (EU). Although the Lisbon Treaty was rejected by the Irish Republic voters, the political elites within Europe managed to circumvent the voters and ratify the international treaty on December 1, 2009.
Since the enactment of the Lisbon Treaty, Europeans have witnessed a slow loss of their liberties, and national sovereignty to EU bureaucratic laws, which often imposed trade restrictions on nations not willing to adopt EU policies, including the unpopular immigration policies of open borders. The insanity of unchecked immigration and increasingly socialist liberalism policies of restricted free speech has led to increased tensions within many European nations.
Brexit Was A Wake Up Call For Europe!
Massive protests were fairly unusual in Europe, especially by the average tax paying European, but that drastically changed over the last few years. As protesters became more organized it led to the recent political polar changes, the rise of nationalist and populist victories. The first event that shocked many was Brexit, which was quickly followed by American President Donald Trump’s massive upset of the ultra-liberal and globalist Hilary Clinton.
Recent European elections in other places have seen only more nationalist victories, i.e., Italy, Germany, Austria, and others. These were a major wake up call for EU leaders. The Roman roads have indeed become a bit bumpy.
The United States of Europe
The trend of nationalism has not gone unnoticed by the massive bureaucracy and mostly Globalist political leaders of the EU, which is situated in Brussels. The policies of the socialist liberals have led to massive immigration from primarily Muslim countries, where once stable democracies of Europe have now become melting pots of sectarian and racial unrest.
The global socialist liberals have no intention of surrendering, so the future seems to suggest to me, we will see more protests, and they will likely be increasingly violent. How the leadership in Brussels responds is the real question.
The awakening of the Europeans is not isolated to Europe, other countries are having their own renascence of nationalism. Australia, Canada, and America are all coming to the reality that unchecked immigration and secular liberalism don’t work, especially when those entering the country have ideologies not compatible with Western ideas and laws.
Western secular democracies are not compatible with Islamic seventh-century theology and Islamic Sharia law. Islam teaches dominance and submission to Islam, including the implementation of Islamic Sharia Law. Secular liberalism teaches secular humanism, relativism, and hedonism with a legal system based on tolerance and diversity. Clearly, it was inevitable that the situation was going to come to a collision.
The wake up call of nationalist victories across Europe, combined with the Brexit vote , and now the dismantling of horrible one-sided trade agreements by President Trump, agreements that heavily favored the EU. All of this has forced the bureaucrats of the European Union to accept the reality of the situation, major change is need in the present system of the EU. Only a United European State with a single leader, very similar to the United States of America and the office of the Presidency, can they hope to survive as a unified Europe.
May The Real Roman Empire Step Up
As Christians we should always trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, and not elections and human leaders. We keep an eye on events happening around the world because our Lord commanded us to be looking and ready for His coming.
Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” – Luke 21:36 (NKJV)
Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. – Matt 24:44 (NKJV)
So, when looking at these events in Europe, the central question for us as Christians, are we seeing movement towards an end-times Revived Roman Empire, or is this simply the end of a humanistic governance experiment that failed?
Using our contemporary language, a version of a Unified European Union would certainly qualify as the revived Roman Empire. The same Empire that once controlled the world and condemned Jesus Christ, the king of Kings, to be crucified on a cross. It would be very fitting to see the United Roman Empire reappear, just in time for the return of Jesus Christ to judge the Revived Roman leader, the Antichrist.
Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. – Rev 19:20(NKJV)
As we continue to see other prophetic signs coming into focus and some already fulfilled, we should seriously consider the EU, at least its final form to be a fulfillment of the Revived Roman Empire. If this is what we are seeing, the obvious next steps will be to witness the shake-up of the existing EU, where ten leaders will emerge, likely regional members of a United States of Europe. According to the Book of Revelation, these ten leaders will quickly elect a single Prime Minister of Europe, which Christians know him as the Antichrist!
The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.” – Rev 17:12-14(NKJV)
And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” – Rev 17:16-18 (NKJV)
We can readily expect the soon fulfilment of a Revived Roman Empire. Reading Revelation 17 in context, we can also expect to see an ecumenical religious harlot, one that has committed spiritual fornication with the government leaders of the world, and made herself drunk with the blood of Christians. What indications are there to identify this harlot:
When this prophecy was written, Rome was the city that ruled over the kings of the earth, so we instantly know the Harlot system is situated in Rome on ten mountains or hills.
She was once joined to Christ Jesus but now has forsaken her marriage to commit spiritual fornication, mixing herself with the political intrigues of the world.
She interestingly rides on the beast Empire but is hated by those within this final Roman Empire.
She has been responsible for the murder of numerous Christians.
She is exceedingly rich and has a gold cup full of abominations, which are her teachings of blasphemy and immorality.
Although the Mystery Harlot will be for a future article, we can clearly see this amazing prophecy is accurately describing the Roman Catholic Church!
Rome was once a faithful church (We see the churches in Rome and Italy being addressed in the Books of Romans and Hebrews). The Roman Catholic Church is situated in Rome, setting upon seven hills, consumed with immorality and corruption charges, while teaching heretical doctrines.
The Antichrist will not give his glory to another, he will oversee the destruction of Rome and Vatican City, which we can easily see with the present situation in Europe, especially during a turbulent time like the tribulation.
As previously stated, according to the Book of Revelation, if the EU is the Revived Roman Empire, the ten European regional or nominated leaders, will quickly submit their authority to a single Prime Minister of Europe, which Christians know him as the Antichrist, this leader must be very close to revealing himself.
For we walk by faith, not by sight. – 2 Cor 5:7(NKJV)
As we rapidly move towards the Return of Jesus Christ and ultimately the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church, it’s essential to keep our eyes on world events, especially the Middle East and Israel in particular.
As commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ, be ready, be looking!
