The EU Observer is reporting that new European bills will begin showing a woman riding a beast, starting in May of next year.
“BRUSSELS – In Greek mythology, the Phoenician princess Europa was abducted and raped by the king of the gods, Zeus.
But her image will from next year replace pictures of windows and doors on euro banknotes as a security and deocrative feature.
“Portraits have long been used in banknotes around the world and research has shown that people tend to remember faces. Is there any better figure than Europa to serve as the new face of the euro?” the chief of the European Central Bank (ECB), Mario Draghi, said on Thursday (8 November) according to Bloomberg.
She will first appear on the €5 note in May, with other notes introduced in ascending order in the next few years.”
This development will have many prophecy buffs excited, but there is something you should know before you get carried away; Satan always has his counterfeits!
This development is a sure sign that we are in the End Times, but it may not transpire as many believe it will. I fear Satan is setting up a counterfeit Harlot (Rev. 17) and a counterfeit city (Rome), and counterfeits of the Antichrist and the False Prophet, for the express purpose of destroying them!
Satan has no love for any of these entities. He will use them and discard them like crumpled old candy wrappers! Once the counterfeit has been destroyed, the real will make their appearance, and the world will breathe a sigh of relief!
Remember this; the Roman Catholic church will survive the destruction of Rome! She will have to move her headquarters, and elect a new leader, but the church of Rome does have the ability to relocate her headquarters if the need arises, and it will! When the bible speaks of God’s judgment against Babylon, it is not mincing words. Babylon will receive God’s judgment when the time is right.
In the mean time you can expect more of this. Europe will elect a dictator, and the Pope will affirm this man. In the aftermath of the Psalm 83 war you can expect this European leader to make a deal with Israel in which Israel will give up her nukes in exchange for a European guarantee of security.
I expect that this guarantee of Israel’s security will result in someone (probably Russia) destroying the European capital (probably Rome) in the early stages of the Gog and Magog war. When they go after Israel, they will first have to stop the Europeans from coming to her aid.
All of this looks like fulfillment of biblical prophecy, but as I started out saying, it is a counterfeit. These things will happen because Satan has to make his Antichrist look like a Saviour!
The real “city of seven mountains” is Amman. The real Antichrist will come from the descendants of Esau, Jacob’s brother. He will be an Arab, from a Muslim background, but the world will think he is a Christian because of his policies, and he talks of “the Christ”. He will show up after these major wars, and the world will look to him as a man of peace. He will use the Catholic and protestant denominations to gain power, and then he will destroy them. They won’t know what hit them!
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. I Thessalonians 5:3
