Brother Andy Walton in his Weekly World Watch looks at the European Union (EU) which consists of 27 member states, and comments on the breach of contract by the Chinese with France and their stepping into the boat with England and America. Normally the member states have agreed by treaties to share their own sovereignty through the institutions of the European Union in some (but by no means all) aspects of government.
10 of these nations want to create an energy deal within the EU. It is interesting it is 10 nations in the EU looking to do this. The Bible speaks of 10 kings (nations) coming out of the EU area and creating a new Holy Roman Empire (HRE). It is unlikely that these are the 10 spoken about as Germany will definitely be part of the 10 nations that join together. However it is interesting surely to see 10 nations coming together in the EU. A foretaste of 10 that will arise and come together to give all their power and strength to the beast (the HRE).
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. (Revelation 17:12-13)
The 10 nations that covered or partially covered by the HRE are, Holland, Germany, Poland, Czech Rep, Austria, Italy, France, Slovenia, Belgium, Luxemburg.
