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)
