“Edom and the Ishmaelites,
Moab and the Hagrites,
Gebal and Ammon and Amalek,
Philistia and the Tyrians,
And now Assyria has joined up,
Giving muscle to the gang of Lot.” ~ Psalm 83:6-8, MSG
Bible prophecy “scholars” my foot! How is it that the majority of these so-called “scholars” are getting away with their widely propagated lies about a Revived Roman Empire, when their lies are merely their way of fitting God’s end-time prophecies into their own misguided interpretations? In essence, they have bamboozled people with their version of “New Math.”
The truth is that Nebuchadnezzar’s statue had 2 legs, with 5 toes on EACH leg! Now, if these 2 legs really represent the western AND eastern portions of the Roman Empire, then how is it that the majority of today’s so-called competent Bible prophecy “scholars” ONLY focus on ONE leg—the western leg? Then too, how is it that these “scholars” continue to get away with combining the 10 toes on Nebuchadnezzar’s statue on ONE leg—the western leg?
The answer is simple: ONLY the western leg of the Roman Empire fits these so-called Bible prophecy scholars’ belief in a Revived Roman Empire’s 10-nation confederation, which is primarily their view because the 5 toes on the western leg consisted of the so-called “strong” European nations: Britain, France, Spain, Italy, and Germany. However, the 5 toes of the eastern leg of the Roman Empire, the so-called strongest nations being Turkey, Egypt, Babylon, Syria and Greece, were NOT ALL European nations! This fact, however, seems to escape most of the astute scholars, as well as many believers who say they are Holy Spirit led.
Be that as it may, since the 1957 creation of the EU, the majority of 20th century’s so-called Bible prophecy “scholars” soon thereafter began to propagate their lies about the 10 toes of Nebuchadnezzar’s statue representing the end-time confederation of 10 specific EU nations, and they continued to do so, at least up until those EU nations exceeded 10 in number, which happened after Greece joined the European Economic Community in 1981. At this point in time, “scholars” had their ten specific European nations. However, once the number of EU states grew to the current 27 nations, these so-called “scholars” had to re-visit their interpretations and then re-calculate their analysis. The end result is that the 10 EU nations are now represented as the United Nations 10 World Regions and Continental Regions: North America, Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Pacific, South Asia, Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, East Asia, and Western Europe.
Even though this result means that more than a total of 10 specific nations are in these regions, it appears that it doesn’t matter to those who believe that God’s prophecies are EXACT and TRUE. What only seems to matter is that these regions represent the magical number 10, and the number 10 means that the predicted Revived Roman Empire manifesting through the EU 10-nation confederation has been proven to be true!
Finally, the EU 10-nation confederation not only is a version of “New Math” but also some hogwash, for sure. God, Himself, tells believers in Psalm 83:6-8 who EXACTLY will be the members of the prophesied 10-nation confederation! Believers have read these 10 nations in the verses that are quoted at the beginning of this piece! Thus, believers should research these nations’ current names to see who they are today!
