This is very interesting for several reasons. The first of course is that even the writer of the article says the WEU lives on and uses an exclamation point. One would have expected an article which simply stated matter of factly that the WEU vestigial functions were continued in the Satellite center. The use of the exclamation point would almost make one think the writer was aware of our needs in following the WEU prophetically. More likely from his vantage point the exclamation point is simply his way of making an otherwise dull technical point of EU/WEU history seem exciting.
This is a bit of a puzzle in that the WEU is now a wee ghost and wisp of what it was …..or of what it should be …one would think for it to remain “prophetic”.
I, however, will accept it as a continuation because should the right leader arise to again take command the prophecies will be fulfilled. Very strange.
Remember, however that in the prophecies of Christ’s first coming some events were fulfilled by very small details. Christ was called out of Egypt having only lived there for a few years or even less as an escape from Herod.
The fact that the article is entitled “The WEU lives On” with an exclamation point almost seems as though God has given it to us in the manner of a gift to say…Keep watching!
It “feels” like the God I know. IMHO
Only those with eyes to see (eyes of faith) will even consider the possibilities of this article. Certainly as a legal technicality the WEU lives on as the monies provided to run the site will come from the ten full status members of the WEU only. The funds will not be coming from the 27 nations of the EU as a whole or even from the non voting members of the WEU. This truly feels as though God has pulled back the curtain for eyes to see. This means close to nothing for the rest of the world and in the usual case one could have imagined this to have occurred with nary a word ever said allowing us to know that the ten are the retained financiers of the scant remaining WEU functions. In the days prior to computer news searches and notifications we would not have likely been able to see these things. The details of this are not enough to allow us to shout it from the house tops but the FACTS are such that one must say the WEU lives On!
The end times theory we watch may yet prove to be wrong but until the end of 2013 we still have a seven year treaty and now we see that there remains even a 10 nation WEU. It is pathetic in its appearance before the world. However if it is a portion of Fulfilled prophecy then God requires one to see facts no matter how small and take them at face value. The Western European Union Lives On!
The size and function of it is so small one cannot use it to say to all comers that the WEU is vital and prophetic. Its continued existence however is a lifeline to those who believe it fulfills prophecy.
For those of us who wished to see this resolved without having to wait until 2013 apparently no such luck.
Thanks to Nonymouse on FP for this link.
To Wickus: If you know how to set up the polling aspects of this site I would like to ask the following questions:
1) Does the WEU in its new greatly reduced status fulfill the requirements of prophecy ?
2) Would your mother think it fulfills the requirements of prophecy? 8)
