Link for the "Other" EU 666 Document - "Calling Mr. 666

Facts on the ground suggest it may be time for us evangelicals to set aside our minor differences and start working together. The end-times events could be happening friends, whether we like it or not.

If you thought the 10-nation Western European Union's Assembly Recommendation 666 was interesting, how about this: Out of over 1100 documents listed on the EU's 1998 General Report, the one creating the EU's new Office of High Representative, and giving it its foreign policy mandate, is also numbered 666. And, wouldn't you know it? That mandate includes the Middle East and Israel. [See 11/28/04 Update above re. info. on the second link.-nony]

Friends, as far as Bible prophecy is concerned, this could be equally important as Recommendation 666. The reason I'm saying that is because a member of our discussion board recently pointed out something interesting about another passage about the coming Antichrist. In Revelation we read:

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name (Revelation 13:16-17 New America Standard Bible).

The member said the Greek word for 'name' used in the above verse could also be interpreted 'authority.' In other words, the number 666 could actually be the number giving the coming Antichrist his authority to act"
