What Lamb & Lion Means To Me
August Rosado: I want to say congratulations to the Dr. Dave Reagan and the staff of Lamb & Lion Ministries for their 1,000th article. The ministry has been a blessing to me in helping me to understand the plain sense teaching of the prophetic word of God. What I appreciate about Lamb & Lion is that they are not about hype and sensationalism, but educating the body of Messiah as to events in Israel, the Middle East, and the world, from a clear, literal interpretation from God's word. I have been following the ministry since 1989 and have read many of Dr. Reagan's books, and he has been a mentor to me. It was an honor to do a two-part TV program for the "Christ in Prophecy" show. Again, I say congratulations to Dr. Reagan, Nathan Jones, and the staff of Lamb & Lion Ministries. God bless!
Guest Article: "Ministers Ponder Creation of EU Super-President"
Talk about a page right out of Bible prophecy! A high ranking European Union official said that the EU is set to create a "Super President" position. The EU said that the new "Supremo" would have more powers than the current President, Herman Van Rompuy and Jose Manual Barrusso.
The EU says the "new figure" would streamline the European Commission into a two-tier structure. Every EU member State would still have their own Commissioner in all 27 countries. The new Super President would also chair General Affairs Council monthly meetings of Foreign Ministers which discuss internal affairs the EU.
In the 50's the Spokesperson for the European Union was Paul Henry Spaak. His statement still sends shockwaves in the prophetic world today:
"We don't want another committee, we have too many already, what we need is a man of sufficient stature, one who can hold the allegiance of the people, and take us out of this economical mess we are sinking into, send us such a man, and be he god or the devil, we will accept him."
A Great Statue
In Daniel 2:31-33, God gave Nebachednezzar king of Babylon a dream concerning a great image. This dream and image really concerned the king of Babylon, and with good reason, this image would spell the end of his Empire.
This image's body parts would represent a succession of world empires:
- Head of Gold - Babylon
- Breast & Arms of silver - Medes-Persians
- Belly & Thighs of brass - Greece
- Legs of Iron - Rome
- Feet of Iron and Clay - Revived Roman Empire
Fifty years after the king of Babylon's dream, Daniel received a vision concerning four beasts. As with the great image of Daniel 2, these beast also represent world empires, (Daniel 7:1-8):
- Lion - Babylon
- Bear - Medes-Persians
- Leopard - Greece
- Forth Beast - Unidentified, but is Rome
Daniel 7:7 tells us out of the Roman Empire will arise ten horns from a future Revived Roman Empire. Verse 8 says a "little horn" will come out of these ten horns — a future Empire. This would be the Gentile world ruler described in Revelation 13:1 as the Antichrist.
These ten horns are described by Daniel in 7:7-8,20,24 and the Apostle John in Revelation 12:3; 13:1; 17:3,7,12,16. These horns will be a strong global ten-nation confederacy that will give global authority to the Man of Sin when he appears on the world scene (1 Jn. 2:18).
The Great Stone
Daniel 2:34 tells us that this final Gentile world empire — the image in Daniel 2 — where the feet of iron and clay is the final world empire, will be destroyed by a great stone. This stone is the Lord Jesus the Jewish Messiah who will defeat the Antichrist and False Prophet and cast them into the lake of fire (Rev. 19:19-20).
This stone will become great and fill the whole earth. This is referring to the 1,000-year Millennial Kingdom reign of Jesus recorded in Revelation 20:2-7. At this time Satan is confined to the bottomless pit for the duration of the Millennium, and then will be released. Satan will meet his eternal doom when he is finally cast in to the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:10).
With this current event unfolding in the European Union, and their goal to create a powerful "Super-President" position which could be the position the Antichrist himself could take over, it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The next event soon is the Rapture of the Church. Jesus could return at any moment. Let us keep looking to the heavens, anticipating the sound of the trumpet. We can almost hear it! Maranatha!
