The EU flag has a circle of 12 stars on a blue background. These stars were inspired by the halo of 12 stars appearing around the Madonna as depicted
in Catholic pictures of her. Leon Marchal, former secretary general of the Council of Europe, confirmed that the stars are representative of “the
woman of the Apocalypse”. He expounded, “it’s wonderful that we have gotten back to the introit of the new Mass of the Assumption. It’s the
corona stellarum duodecim of the woman of the Apocalypse”.4 He is referencing the woman in Revelation 12 who appears with a crown of 12 stars. The
Bible uses this symbolism to represent Israel, however the Catholic Church has always claimed that she represents the Virgin Mary, “the mother of
God”. A leaflet titled “Building Europe Together” states that “The European flag is a shared flag, blue with 12 gold stars symbolizing
completeness. The number will remain 12 no matter how many countries there are in the European Union.”
The anthem of the EU “Ode to Joy” also contains religious symbolism. “Ode to Joy” is the prelude to the last movement of Beethoven’s Ninth
Symphony, which has religious implications. EU publications state that the anthem really is an “ode to freedom, community, and peace”, however
the lyrics, by Friedrich von Schiller, are actually about the entering of the shrine of a pagan goddess and the uniting of all men in brotherhood, by
the power of magic.5
Further evidence of a religious side to the European Union is a poster that was issued by the EU, showing the tower of Babel. The poster carried the
slogan “Many tongues, one voice.” As if the celebration of the pagan tower that led God to confuse the languages of a defiant people (Genesis 11)
isn’t enough, a crane in the background was shown rebuilding the tower. Now, once again, a rebellious people are rebuilding mystery Babylon. In a
parliament building in Strasbourg, France, you will find an enormous replica of the unfinished tower of Babel that the secular press has named
If that religious symbolism seems too obscure to be that significant, perhaps a snapshot of Revelation 17 will peak your interest in the religious
symbolism of the EU. Revelation 17 depicts a great harlot riding on a beast. The beast in Revelation 17 represents the world government and the
great harlot is a global religion that will ride in on its back. This harlot riding a beast was used when Britain issued a stamp to commemorate the
first EU parliament election in 1979. It is now the official picture of the EU, and is painted on the dome of the parliament building in Brussels.
It is also pictured on the same building that holds the “Eurobabel”.
The EU constitution has also raised the ire of protestant leaders by banning the mention of Christianity as part of Europe’s cultural heritage,
while at the same time, including references to the civilizations of Greece and Rome, and the philosophical heritage of the Enlightenment. EU
government representatives excused this revisionist view of history by claiming any mention of Christian values would upset the Muslim population of
As you can see, the stage is being set for the emergence of a global political system(the EU and the UN), a global economic system(the Euro and WTO),
and a global religious system (the interfaith movement). The EU would seem to fulfill many of the prophesies of the fourth kingdom that is to come,
from which will arise the Antichrist of the end-times. Only time will tell, but as we are encouraged in the Bible to be aware of the signs, we should
all be looking up. We may soon be with our Lord.
So there you have it. You only need to look at the vision Daniel had with the statue and the 4th beast. The 4th beast that Daniel describes is the
same beast of Revelation that the Harlot Woman is riding. The U.S. is not the end-times empire... the EU is... at least in my opinion.
