John and Doves,
We see this as the fulfillment of Bible Prophecy as the EU takes a more prominent position on the world's stage. The way we see it, Ms. Ashton is merely paving the way for the little horn ( Daniel 7 ) who is to come ... the man who will speak as the one voice of the EU, and subsequently for the whole earth. He will be the EU's foreign policy chief ... a euphemism for one world leader.
In the following article, do you see the image of the cross ? It's there to remind us that God is always in control, no matter what.
"In order to win the vote, the EU had to agree to changes to the global organisation that transforms the UN from an assembly of nation states into a body that also offers representation rights to regional blocs as well, including potentially the African Union, the Arab League and the South American Union.The EU on Tuesday was given almost all the rights in the global chamber that fully-fledged states enjoy after the General Assembly backed 180 to two a resolution giving the bloc, which until this week only maintained observer status at the UN, the union the right to speak, the right to make proposals and submit amendments, the right of reply, the right to raise points of order and the right to circulate documents.
There will also be additional seats put in the chamber for the EU's foreign policy chief, High Representative Catherine Ashton and her officials."
