Europa Statue EU Headquarters Brussels

The Lisbon Treaty, which came into full effect on December 1st, basically ended the national sovereignty for most European nations.  Most of the important decisions for the citizens of Europe will now be made by a small group of European elitists – many of them totally unelected.  But for the global elite, the consolidation of the EU is just one step towards a larger goal.  You see, the ultimate desire of these elitists is to merge regional alliances such as the EU into a world government.  In fact, in symbols used on official European coins, posters and artwork, the elite have sent us a message telling us exactly what they are planning to do to all of humanity – if anyone out there is willing to listen.

The picture at the top of this article is of a statue right outside EU headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.  It is a statue of the pagan goddess Europa riding a bull.  EU representatives openly acknowledge as much.  According to Greek tradition, Europa (from which Europe takes it’s name) was a beautiful Phoenecian woman of high ranking who draws the attention of Zeus – the great Greek sky god.  Zeus becomes so enamored with Europa that he transforms himself into the most beautiful white bull that anyone has ever seen. Europa spots this beautiful bull and climbs on top of it and suddenly the bull plunges into the sea and rapes her. Zeus then takes Europa away to Crete where he finally reveals his true identity.

The following is a version of the story of the goddess Europa from the San Diego State University website…..

One night Europa had a dream. In this dream two continents, which were in the forms of women were arguing over Europa. Asia maintained that since Europa had been born in Asia she belonged to it. The other continent, which was nameless, said that her birth was not important, that Zeus would give her to it. It was early morning, disturbed by the dream Europa did not go back to sleep. She summoned her companions, who were all daughters of nobility and of her age. It was a beautiful day and they went off gathering flowers by the sea. Zeus noticed this charming group, particularly Europa, who was the prettest [sic] of the maidens…Zeus appeared to the group as a white bull. A white bull more beautiful then any other…The bull laid down in front of Europa. She slid on to its back. Instantly, the bull charged off, plunging into the sea, and began to swim rapidly from the shore. Europa saw that a procession had joined them, Nereids riding dolphins, Triton blowing his horn, even Poseidon. From this she realized that the bull must be a god. She pleaded with him to pity her. Zeus spoke to her and explained his love. He took her to Create, where he had been raised. He promised that she would bear him many famous sons.

So what does all of this have to do with today?

Well, you see, Zeus (the bull) is associated in the Scriptures with the true master of these elitists.  In Revelation 2:12-13, we read the following….

“To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword. I know where you live—where Satan has his throne.”

So what was so special about Pergamum?

That was where the Great Altar of Pergamum (or Pergamon) was.  Wikipedia tells us that following about this altar…..

The Great Altar of Pergamon, a massive stone podium about one hundred feet long and thirty-five feet high, was originally built in the 2nd century BC in the Ancient Greek city of Pergamon (modern day Bergama in Turkey) in north-western Anatolia, 25.74 kilometers (16 miles) from the Aegean Sea. The Great Altar of Pergamon has figured in lists of the Wonders of the World.

It has long been assumed that the magnificently-scaled and opulently decorated open-air altar (it is not a temple) was dedicated to Zeus.

You see, that is why in Revelation chapter 2 Jesus said that Satan’s throne was there.  It was this gigantic altar of Zeus that He likely was referring to.

So by using this ancient legend as a symbol for the EU, the elitists are telling us that the plan of their master (Zeus or Satan or Lucifer) is to seduce Europe (Europa) and ultimately to dominate it.

We see this same legend promoted on coins, on posters and in artwork all throughout the EU.  Some examples are posted below…..

A 2 Euro coin was released in Greece that depicts a woman riding a beast…..

In 1996, a 5 Euro Coin was released that depicted Europa riding the bull…..

To commemorate the second election of the European Parliament in 1984, a stamp was released with this same symbology…..

A cover of Der Spiegel featured a picture of a woman riding a beast carrying the EU flag with the headline: “Good Morning Europe”…..

Time Magazine published some artwork of a “United Europe” that featured Europa riding the beast…..

The photo below is a Europa statue in front of the Winston Churchill Building…..

Not only that, but other EU symbols send messages that have a very deep meaning.  According to tradition, Nimrod was the one who began the building of the Tower of Babel.  He also built the very first empire after Noah’s flood and he tried to establish the very first world government.  With that in mind, check out the EU poster below.  This poster was the official poster promoting the EU Parliament before it was banned because of protests from numerous groups.  Note how clearly it connects the EU with the Tower of Babel…..

EU Poster Tower Of Babel

By using this symbology, the EU elitists were basically saying that they wanted to complete what Nimrod started – the building of a world government.

This ties in directly with the symbology of the woman riding a beast.

You see, not only does a woman riding a beast hearken back to the legend of Zeus and Europa, it also has a direct connection to the Bible.  In the book of Revelation we also read about a woman riding a beast.  In Revelation 17:3 it says this…..

Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a desert. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns.

That beast in the book of Revelation represents the world government led by the Antichrist.  By so prominently using the symbol of a woman riding the beast, the global elite are very clearly communicating that they are connected with this coming Beast system.  They know what the Bible says when they use symbols like this.  It seems like they are almost bragging about it.

You see, the elitists at the very top of the pyramid are hardcore Luciferians.  They also know that Antichrist is coming, and they plan to serve him.  They believe that they are actually going to win the end.  They have confidence in their “god” just as we have confidence in our God.

Satan has deceived himself into believing that he can win this thing in the end and he has deceived his followers into believing the same thing.  Such a thing seems inconceivable to Christians – but this is what hardcore Luciferians actually believe.

In fact, one thing that is common among the Luciferian global elite is a compulsion to tell us exactly what they are about to do.  In this case, they are very open about the fact that not only do they intend to deceive and subjugate Europe, but they intend to do the same to all of humanity.

Herman Van Rompuy First President Of Europe

We live at a time when we are literally watching Bible prophecy being fulfilled right in front of our eyes. In fact, things are now happening with such lightning speed that it is hard just to keep up with it all. Recent events out of Europe are another startling indication of just how close to the last days we actually are. Not only was Herman Van Rompuy just selected to be the very first “President of Europe”, but he is openly calling for a “Euro tax” that will go directly to the European Union, and he has openly declared 2009 to be “the first year of global governance”. For a “President of Europe” to so quickly call for a “Euro tax” and “global governance” is absolutely stunning.

The idea for a “Euro tax” is actually not new. The European commission’s head, José Manuel Barroso, has already called for a new Euro tax, and Mr. Van Rompuy says that he intends to push hard for the implementation of that proposal when he takes office in January.  The proposed tax will be a European version of a “Tobin Tax” – a tax on financial transactions which was already proposed by Gordon Brown as a solution to the international banking crisis.

Mr. Van Rompuy expressed his support for this Euro tax during a private speech at a recent meeting of the Bilderberg group.  All meetings of the Bilderberg group are supposed to be secret, but fortunately details of Van Rompuy’s speech got out.

In defense of this new tax, Van Rompuy recently was quoted by a major U.K. newspaper as saying this…..

“The financing of the welfare state, irrespective of the social reform we implement, will require new resources.”

This new Euro tax could potentially show up on all shopping and gas station receipts.  Many observers wonder how it will affect anti-EU sentiment when consumers start seeing a European tax show up on their shopping receipts.

But not only is Van Rompuy pushing for a European tax, he is also openly championing global government.  In fact, during a recent speech he declared 2009 to be the “first year of global governance” and that the upcoming Copenhagen Treaty will be “another step towards the global management of our planet”.

What in the world?

Since when did anyone agree to the global management of the planet?

But the Scriptures tell us that one day a world government will exist.

Now Mr. Van Rompuy seems very excited to do whatever he can to push us towards that.  Posted below is his full quote about global government, and beneath that you can watch a video of him making these comments during a recent speech….. 

“2009 is also the first year of global governance, with the establishment of the G20 in the middle of the financial crisis. The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step towards the global management of our planet.”

The reality is that these events are just another step towards the revived Roman Empire that the prophet Daniel told us would one day come.  One day the Antichrist will use “global governance” to force “everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:16-17)

If you do not know about what the Bible says about the last days, we encourage you to read the rest of this site and to learn about the amazing prophecies being fulfilled in this generation.  But it is not enough just to know about the amazing prophecies that are being fulfilled.  In order to make it through the times ahead and to have eternal life after they are over, you need to have a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  If you would like to know more about how you can have that personal relationship, we would encourage you to check out this article which we recently posted on a sister site.

Pope Benedict: We Need A World Government

Pope Benedict Caritas in Veritate

Pope Benedict says that we need a world government.

That is one of the main themes of his brand new encyclical entitled Caritas in Veritate, or Charity in Truth.  In it, Pope Benedict publicly calls for a “true world political authority” with “real teeth”. At a time when many other prominent world leaders are openly calling for a “New World Order”, to have the Roman Pontiff openly state that we need a world government is more than a little alarming, and it is yet another clear sign that we are living in the last days.

The 144 page encyclical is the result of an intensive 2 year effort by Pope Benedict to bring Catholic social teaching up to date on issues such as economic development, terrorism, sex tourism, population issues, bioethics and the environment.

As he called for world government in the encyclical, the Pope chose words that were very direct and to the point:

“There is a strongly felt need… for a reform of the United Nations Organisation, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth… there is urgent need of a true world political authority.”

“Real teeth”?

What in the world would a global government with “real teeth” look like?

According to Pope Benedict, the job of such a world political authority would be “to manage the global economy; to revive economies hit by the crisis; to avoid any deterioration of the present crisis and the greater imbalances that would result.”

So it is not just a one world government that Pope Benedict is advocating.

He is also officially recommending that the one world government would “manage” a one world economic system.

Not only is Pope Benedict promoting a one world economic system, but he is promoting one that would be openly socialist. In the encyclical, Pope Benedict wrote that a one world economic system would “open up the unprecedented possibility of large-scale redistribution of wealth on a world-wide scale”.

Has Pope Benedict been reading the writings of Karl Marx?

Since when is it the job of the Pope to advocate the “large-scale redistribution of wealth”?

Apparently that would mean taking wealth away from Americans and Europeans and giving it to others.

When Pope Benedict puts out an encyclical that recommends the adoption of a one world government and a one world economic system, it shows all of us how close to the last days that we really are.

What will Pope Benedict call for next?

A one world religion?

After all, most Bible prophecy scholars agree that three of the  main pillars of the Antichrist’s system will be a one world government, a one world economic system (the Mark of the Beast, etc.) and a one world religion.

Pope Benedict’s declaration that we need a one world government and a one world economic system should be a huge wake up call for all of us.

We are in the last days.

It is time to get ready.
