The EU was prophesied in Daniel and again in Revelations of the Bible. It is the great beast empire wherein iron mixes with clay (a euphemism for the mixed cultural makeup of the empire). It is a form of the prophesied revived Roman empire.
Some things to look forward to according to the prophetic record.
A horrible dictatorship led by the god-man antichrist.
A powerful military that will crush all world resistance (for a time).
An EU led invasion of Israel.
Massive persecution and slaughter of christians.
Initially given a green light by the pope, the EU and the antichrist will destroy the Vatican.
The EU will eventually be challenged by China and perhaps Russia.
The EU forces along with all the other worlds forces will be destroyed by the coming of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem.
So yes, I believe the EU will develop a powerful military.
Europe must develop its military capabilities along the lines proposed by the EU's French presidency if it is not always to wait for America and Nato to be ready to intervene, David Miliband, the foreign secretary, will say today.
But in a controversial passage cleared by Downing Street, Miliband will take on the eurosceptics over defence saying he supports the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy's, proposals on EU defence. Sarkozy has argued for a build-up in European military capability, including EU troops going into conflict zones.
Miliband will say: "What strikes me about the French priorities for their presidency is how closely they tie with our own ambitions for the EU, as set out in our global Europe policy statement last autumn whether on energy and climate change, migration, near neighbourhood policy and the next steps on European defence."
In an anonymous letter, the officers from across the armed services slammed France's new defence doctrine, outlined by Mr Sarkozy this week, which calls for 54,000 military and civilian defence job cuts in return for investment in intelligence and hi-tech equipment.
"We are abandoning European military leadership to the British, when we know their particular relationship with the United States," wrote the group calling itself Surcouf – the name of a legendary French corsair who captured dozens of British ships in the Napoleonic wars.
