Comment by Adamantine:
It is apparently true that Javier Solana was advising and directing the Madrid Peace Talks in Spain from behind the scenes back in the early 1990’s.
It is true that Javier Solana fulfilled certain prophetic understandings better than any other man in history which makes him the best Antichrist candidate in all history to fit one prophetic theory.
It is true that Javier Solana is currently advising NATO and the EU behind the scenes from his position as adviser to the SDA.
It is true that NATO has already stated it is available as a force to ensure the peace in Jerusalem.
It is true that the Palestinians plan to seek UN approval of a plan of Statehood for the Palestinians this fall whereby NATO provides the forces to ensure the peace in Jerusalem.
It is true that there exists a credible Biblical theory which understands that at the end of days when transgressors have waxed worse and worse that Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles.
The same Biblical theory posits that Christ returns to Jerusalem to ensure God the Father’s promises to both Jew and Gentile.
IT IS TRUE THAT GOD KEEPS HIS PROMISES.
We appear to be very close to seeing the fulfillment of that which we think is the proper understanding of the Bible AND current events.
