Yes I sure do. The visions of the statue from Daniel 2, the beasts from Daniel 7 and the final beast from the sea of Revelation 13 makes it very clear that the final empire on the world stage - prior to Christ setting up His never ending kingdom - is a reborn Roman Empire.
The fourth world empire in relation to Israel (Daniel 2:21-24) is that of legs of iron. I think it is very significant to realize that there are two legs depicted, and the Roman Empire did in fact end in two halves. There was an Eastern Empire with a capital at Constantinople (now Istanbul, Turkey) and a Western Empire headquartered in Rome. What is also interesting to note is that unlike the other empires that were before it (Babylon, Medes-Persians, Greek) the Roman Empire was never conquered - it only fizzled out. The dream of the statue declares that there will be a 10 nation confederacy made partly of iron (Rome) and partly of clay (signifying that they won’t adhere very well together – perhaps strife and disagreement). I think it is very significant to realize today that there is a Union of European nations that encompass most of the original Roman Empire. Right now Turkey is significant as an associate member of the union, because as I’ve indicated before, Istanbul was once the capitol of the eastern Roman Empire. All the pieces are fitting together nicely into the scenario of a revived Roman Empire. Now we mustn’t be too hasty though, because although the Roman Empire is being reborn, they still have a lot of strife and contention between them (clay mixed with iron). I think there are still some things that need to be accomplished in the Union prior to the necessary components being in place for the final stages of earth’s history. The Bible is clear that this is a confederacy of 10 toes (Daniel 2), 10 horns (Daniel 7, Rev. 13) and as it stand right now, there are 27 member countries with 6 candidate countries being considered. This number is very different from the number 10 of which we expect. So with that I would say stay tuned, because these things will certainly come to pass. It may be 10 nations, or 10 regions or 10 economic zones, but undoubtedly the number 10 will come into play.
Another consideration is that fact that the European Union has adopted for itself the distinct name of ‘Europa’. And with that name came symbols and mascots as it were. Europa comes from mythology where Zeus came to a Phoenician noble-woman named Europa and decided to seduce her. The myth states that Zeus disguised himself as a tame white bull and Europa got onto his back. The myth continues but I wanted to show the symbolism of the woman riding on the bulls back, because you will see it scattered about the EU. The bull is often used as a symbol or national personification of Europe. Here are some examples:
Statue in front of the Winston Churchill Building in Strasbourg (Seat of Parliament)
Statue right outside EU headquarters in Brussels, Belgium
Greek €2 coin
A cover of Der Spiegel featured a picture of a woman riding a bull carrying the EU flag with the headline: "Good Morning Europe
Time Magazine published some artwork of a "United Europe" that featured Europa
When I see these symbols being used so openly I cannot shake the image I read in Revelation 17:3.
“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”
The coincidence is too uncanny for me to ignore.
