The EU's role in global governance

Prophecy Sign:  Revived Rome - The European Superstate


Just in time for the last days, the European Union wants to make it's presence felt in developing global governance. (You know, sometimes bible prophecy fulfilment just writes itself in one brief headline).

We are told in prophecy that the old Roman Empire which ruled over Israel during the time of Jesus Christ will once again re-establish itself in a final kingdom which will involve itself in the affairs of the world and in particular, that of Israel.  It's our belief that this final kingdom will morph into 10 regions dividing up the globe, (hence, the European Union will indeed have a huge role in establishing the coming one world governmental system of the Antichrist).

Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. Daniel 2:40-42 NIV

The EU's role in global governance
At a time of growing interdependence between countries and of a changing balance of power between them, notably with the economic rise of China and other emerging countries, the EU is trying to find its own role to play in global governance. While 'global governance' is a relatively new term, it refers to a very old issue: cooperation between sovereign states on shared challenges. These, which were initially largely limited to peace and security, have significantly expanded in recent years.
All this is occurring in a context where, since the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the EU has set high ambitions for itself to become a strong and cohesive force in international affairs, notably with the creation of the European External Action Service.
