PARIS — Russia’s war on Ukraine has given new momentum to Emmanuel Macron’s push to make the EU more autonomous. But the Continent’s leaders still need to thrash out what that means in practice.

The French president, who welcomes fellow EU leaders to Versailles on Thursday for a summit overshadowed by the war, has long argued the EU needs to become less reliant on others — when it comes to everything from its own security to the supply of semiconductors.

For Macron’s government, Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and its repercussions have dramatically illustrated its point — showing the danger of a Europe unable to defend itself militarily, heavily reliant on Russian energy and too susceptible to external economic shocks.

The war should push the EU “to reduce our interdependence with the outside world, to create not an autocracy but a form of European independence,” Clément Beaune, France’s EU minister, said this week. “If this is the result of this crisis, it will be a success for Europe.”


Such an outcome form this Ukraine war is exactly what we have been waiting for, a move within the EU that moves them into a (security pact) political Alignment with Russia in fulfillment of Bible Prophecy spoken some 3,000 years ago. Bible Prophecy reveals that the EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice and their own ARMY.  BUT ALONG WITH THIS development RUSSIA WILL BECOME INVOLVED WITH EUROPE AND IT’S EU ARMY.  WHY? BECAUSE BIBLE PROPHECY SAYS THAT RUSSIA WILL BECOME A “GUARD” UNTO EUROPE (Ezekiel 38:7).  So how will this unfold, well America and its future political moves with Europe will have a lot to do with how this happens.  We would expect America’s relationship with Europe to weaken and Russia’s to become increasingly stronger.

Ancient names of NationsSo WATCH this development as it is a sure sign that we are living in the last days before Christ’s Return.

This EU SUPERSTATE will along with Russia enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East.  Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”.  Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.  So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe.  It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.

Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines words that show how the Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.
