Most prophecy students are excited today as we continue to see Prophecy unfolding before our eyes. In the book of Daniel, God gave Daniel a look at what was going to happen from King Nebuchadnezzar right up through the second coming of Christ. The King had a dream, and God gave Daniel interpretation of this dream. The image given in Daniel 2 was important because it gave a glimpse of the world powers that would come into being, starting with Babylon all the way to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The last section of the dream had to do with the coming of an empire, which would replace the Roman Empire. The EU has included the nations that were a part of that Empire. Daniel 2:41-43 "Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potters clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it. just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay. so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men, but they will not adhere to one another just as iron does not mix with clay."
This was foretelling that when this new Roman Empire came into being in the last days, it would have problems, and eventually would break up. That Roman Empire was the EU , and yesterday, we saw the beginnings of it's break up. Since the UK announced it's departure, several other countries, including France, Denmark and the Netherlands have entered demands from far right parties for referendums as well.
This breakup will lead to the last part of the figure in the dream becoming reality. Ten kings will come together and they will be the ones that will shoot up and give their power to the "little horn" (The Antichrist). The Antichrist will subdue 3 of the kingdoms and then he will have power over the remaining 7. This New World Order will be what the Antichrist will rule over in the final days.
The void filled by the UK will need to be filled. Turkey is an associate member of the EU, and there have been those that have been working very hard to bring Turkey into the EU as a full member. If this happens, it will be the first time in 2000 years that the Western leg, and the Eastern leg of the old Roman Empire joined together - exactly as scripture said it would be in the final days.
We are seeing prophecy fulfilled and exactly what was written is taking place. Those who are watching know what this means. We live in very exciting times. Over the next few weeks and months, I fully expect to see several countries leave the EU, and perhaps Turkey become a full member. Many believe the Antichrist will come out of that Ottoman Empire. Hang on - it's about to get really interesting.
