(The Revived Roman Emprire)The Bible proclaimed, clearly, that someday the Roman Empire would return as a global power. The Book of Daniel tells us that there will be four worldpowers of gold, silver, brass, and iron. The fourth empire would have a second stage where it would become iron mixed with clay. The European Union certainly fits the bill as being the reunited Roman Empire. Although it is the weakest of all of the world governments it will serve the Antichrist well. In the end, the EUís only purpose will be to give power to the Beast.
"And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever" (Dan 2:40-44).
For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.(Rev 17:17 KJV)
