The Lisbon Treaty is basically the European Constitution under a different name. It offers many of the powers previously sought to create a Foreign Minister position that would speak for Europe. Regarding who that power has been given in the past, I will let the leaders speak for themselves.
“We have finally decided that Europe will speak with one voice, that of Mr. Solana.” | Jacques Chirac: Regarding Solana’s visit to Damascus for the Hariri inquiry Solana to Restore EU Ties with Syria (March 9, 2007)
“Solana has the power and has had it since January 30, 1999. We are speaking with one voice through Javier Solana.” | Madeline Albright: USA Secretary of State Regarding Solana being given sole power to make all further military decisions over NATO Balkan operations.
“I agree with Javier Solana’s decision to do this.” | Bill Clinton: March 21, 1999 in regards to the forthcoming bombings from the above quote.
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
In short, I will share some excerpts from this new European government structure and show also how it is connected to NATO and thereby the United States to have military and civilian assets available in the event of an emergency as determined by Mr. Europe to conquer terrorist forces if need be to keep order, peace and security. And so by peace many will be destroyed.
The following are excerpts from the documents linked above. The purpose is to show in the documentation how power consolidation is being made such that all resources will be available to the High Representative over the military and civilian forces of the EU and UN:
Article 9e page 9
2. The High Representative shall conduct the Union’s common foreign and security policy. He or she shall contribute by his or her proposals to the development of that policy, which he or she shall carry out as mandated by the Council. The same shall apply to the common security and defence policy.
3. The High Representative shall preside over the Foreign Affairs Council.
Article 13 page 9
3. The common foreign and security policy shall be put into effect by the High Representative and by the Member States, using national and Union resources.
Article 19 page 11 – With the LISBON TREATY Solana has a foot in the UN security Council and has the EU countries there work for his interests:
“Member States which are also members of the United Nations Security Council will concert and keep the other Member States, and the High Representative, fully informed. Member States which are members of the Security Council will, in the execution of their functions, defend the positions and the interests of the Union, without prejudice to their responsibilities under the provisions of the United Nations Charter. When the Union has defined a position on a subject which is on the United Nations Security Council agenda, those Member States which sit on the Security Council shall request that the High Representative be asked to present the Union’s position “[…]
Article 9e page 12
2. Furthermore, the Conference recalls that, as regards the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy whose term of office will start in November 2009 at the same time and for the same duration as the next Commission, he or she will be appointed in accordance with the provision of Articles 9d and 9e of the Treaty on European Union.
from A/WEU  DG 7 3 December 2007 FIFTY-THIRD SESSION
TREATY AMENDING THE TREATY ON EUROPEAN UNION AND THE TREATY ESTABLISHING THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY THE “LISBON TREATY” Provisions concerning the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP), including the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP)
If the Lisbon Treaty is not ratified by all 27 EU member states in 2008, Dr. Solana seems to stand to gain additional powers (other than possibly Rec. 666) if the treaty is not ratified by 1/1/09:
Entry into force
Article 78. Declaration on practical measures to be taken upon the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon as regards the Presidency of the European Council and of the Foreign Affairs CouncilIn the event that the Treaty of Lisbon enters into force later than 1 January 2009, the Conference requests the competent authorities of the Member State holding the six-monthly Presidency of the Council at that time, on the one hand, and the person elected President of the European Council [the largely ceremonial “figurehead”] and the person appointed High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy [likely Dr. Javier Solana], on the other hand, to take the necessary specific measures, in consultation with the following six-monthly Presidency, to allow an efficient handover of the material and organisational aspects of the Presidency of the European Council [6-mo. rotating, i.e., Czech Republic on 1/1/09] and of the Foreign Affairs Council [foreign policy constituents of Dr. Solana’s, imho].
P.S. Could be wrong, but also believe there is a very strong likelihood that the false prophet will likely be the “figurehead” president of the Council and would venture to guess that the individual who will fill that position has already been selected.
I believe the above alone to be a serious wake-up call to anyone who doesn’t think there is a legal framework being put into place that will become the New World Order headed by the man of sin to deceive the world and implement his control over the world from Europe. When we see how NATO fits into what is going down and America’s path through the coming times seems tied into this global governance as the North American Union ‘a couple years away’.
The NATO connection: Look out America!
The following document comes from the Official Journal of the European Union:
23. PROTOCOL ON PERMANENT STRUCTURED COOPERATION ESTABLISHED BY ARTICLE I-41(6) AND ARTICLE III-312 OF THE CONSTITUTION
THE HIGH CONTRACTING PARTIES,
HAVING REGARD TO Article I‑41(6) and Article III‑312 of the Constitution,
RECALLING that the Union is pursuing a common foreign and security policy based on the achievement of growing convergence of action by Member States;
RECALLING that the common security and defence policy is an integral part of the common foreign and security policy; that it provides the Union with operational capacity drawing on civil and military assets; that the Union may use such assets in the tasks referred to in Article III‑309 of the Constitution outside the Union for peace‑keeping, conflict prevention and strengthening international security in accordance with the principles of the United Nations Charter; that the performance of these tasks is to be undertaken using capabilities provided by the Member States in accordance with the principle of a single set of forces;
RECALLING that the common security and defence policy of the Union does not prejudice the specific character of the security and defence policy of certain Member States;
RECALLING that the common security and defence policy of the Union respects the obligations under the North Atlantic Treaty of those Member States, which see their common defence realised in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which remains the foundation of the collective defence of its members, and is compatible with the common security and defence policy established within that framework;
CONVINCED that a more assertive Union role in security and defence matters will contribute to the vitality of a renewed Atlantic Alliance, in accordance with the Berlin Plus arrangements;
DETERMINED to ensure that the Union is capable of fully assuming its responsibilities within the international community;
RECOGNISING that the United Nations Organisation may request the Union’s assistance for the urgent implementation of missions undertaken under Chapters VI and VII of the United Nations Charter;
RECOGNISING that the strengthening of the security and defence policy will require efforts by Member States in the area of capabilities;
CONSCIOUS that embarking on a new stage in the development of the European security and defence policy involves a determined effort by the Member States concerned;
RECALLING the importance of the Minister for Foreign Affairs being fully involved in proceedings relating to permanent structured cooperation,
HAVE AGREED UPON the following provisions, which shall be annexed to the Constitution:
The permanent structured cooperation referred to in Article I‑41(6) of the Constitution shall be open to any Member State which undertakes, from the date of entry into force of the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe, to:
(a) proceed more intensively to develop its defence capacities through the development of its national contributions and participation, where appropriate, in multinational forces, in the main European equipment programmes, and in the activity of the Agency in the field of defence capabilities development, research, acquisition and armaments (European Defence Agency), and
(b) have the capacity to supply by 2007 at the latest, either at national level or as a component of multinational force groups, targeted combat units for the missions planned, structured at a tactical level as a battle group, with support elements including transport and logistics, capable of carrying out the tasks referred to in Article III‑309, within a period of 5 to 30 days, in particular
in response to requests from the United Nations Organisation, and which can be sustained for an initial period of 30 days and be extended up to at least 120 days.
To achieve the objectives laid down in Article 1, Member States participating in permanent structured cooperation shall undertake to:
(a) cooperate, as from the entry into force of the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe, with a view to achieving approved objectives concerning the level of investment expenditure on defence equipment, and regularly review these objectives, in the light of the security environment and of the Union’s international responsibilities;
(b) bring their defence apparatus into line with each other as far as possible, particularly by harmonising the identification of their military needs, by pooling and, where appropriate, specialising their defence means and capabilities, and by encouraging cooperation in the fields of training and logistics;
(c) take concrete measures to enhance the availability, interoperability, flexibility and deployability of their forces, in particular by identifying common objectives regarding the commitment of forces, including possibly reviewing their national decision‑making procedures;
(d) work together to ensure that they take the necessary measures to make good, including through multinational approaches, and without prejudice to undertakings in this regard within the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the shortfalls perceived in the framework of the ‘Capability Development Mechanism’;
(e) take part, where appropriate, in the development of major joint or European equipment programmes in the framework of the European Defence Agency.
The European Defence Agency shall contribute to the regular assessment of participating Member States’ contributions with regard to capabilities, in particular contributions made in accordance with the criteria to be established, inter alia, on the basis of Article 2, and shall report thereon at least once a year. The assessment may serve as a basis for Council recommendations and European decisions adopted in accordance with Article III‑312 of the Constitution.

Interesting I think, especially when viewed in light of another aspect of control coming from the UN as well. The European Defence Agency reports to the Council of the European Union whose Secretary-General is one Javier Solana. Then there’s this story that recently came to my attention:
Outrage Erupts Over Bush Demands in Murder Case WorldNet Daily (October 10, 2007) – What the U.S. government wants in the Medellin murder case, now being heard before the U.S. Supreme Court, is “bizarrely grotesque,” according to the chief counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund. And the warning from ADF Chief Counsel Benjamin Bull notes that the case, being pursued by President Bush through the Department of Justice, could result in U.S. laws being subjugated to U.N. resolutions and rules to the point that local police officers will have to spend more time studying international law than catching criminals.
This is all even more curious when looking at what Farmer brings to light the following, Sun and Moon can converge: Solana’s voice at the UN implemented into the EU Treaty. The following is an excerpt from a document found at the NATO on-line library. Thank you Bjorn:
NATO after Riga (February 14, 2007)…Fully operational NATO Response Force Allied leaders announced at Riga that the NATO Response Force (NRF) had reached its full operational capability. The technologically-advanced force is made up of land, air, sea and special forces components that the Alliance can deploy quickly wherever needed. It is capable of performing missions worldwide across the whole spectrum of operations, including evacuations, disaster management, counterterrorism, and acting as an initial entry force for larger, follow-on forces. It can number up to 25,000 troops and start to deploy after five days’ notice and sustain itself for operations lasting 30 days or longer if re-supplied. The Secretary General [Jaap de Hoop Scheffer] described achieving full operational capability for the NRF as “a major accomplishment because it gives the Euro-Atlantic community unprecedented capability.” NATO leaders agreed at Riga on common funding of short-notice deployments of the NRF, an agreement that should act as an incentive for countries to participate in future rotations of the force……At Riga, NATO leaders launched a special operations forces transformation initiative to increase joint training and doctrine development, improve equipment, and enhance interoperability. The Allies also directed further work in a number of other areas that are vital to modern operations, including air-to-ground surveillance, logistics and intelligence-sharing. These and a broad range of other activities illustrating NATO’s transformation in action were displayed at a Transformation Exhibition during the Summit. Transformation costs money. The Riga Summit declaration stated Allies’ commitment to continuing to provide, individually and collectively, the resources necessary to allow NATO to perform the tasks demanded of it. They therefore called on member nations with declining defence spending to increase this spending in real terms…
The question becomes then what constitutes terrorism? When we start to examine the beginning stages of the attack on thought mixed with the goal of the Alliance of Civilizations to fight against those claiming sole ownership to the Truth, the definition of a terrorist could easily become a thought crime issue and with lies repeated loud enough and long enough mixed with people claiming to be Christian but acting contrary to the Bible’s dictates I’m sure will be used to destroy Christianity and support the worship of the man of sin as the Bible foretells will happen. The goal ultimately is to have civilian and military forces act as one to support the governmental system in development today and enforce the laws and rules as dictated from Mr. Europe. We are seeing power through trade and political agreements asserted on the world’s unsuspecting population, showing how it is possible for those not watching to miss all that is being fulfilled around them.
United Nations to expand police force Associated Press (November 1, 2007) – With the world facing new security threats, the U.N. is planning for an unprecedented expansion of its police missions. U.N. officials say a shift in the nature of conflicts requires revamped peacekeeping operations. Traditionally, the U.N. has facilitated peace between warring states by sending its blue-helmeted soldiers to man buffer zones between their armies. But today, interventions are increasingly focused on settling civil wars.
Then there’s what Holly Pivec posted at Fulfilled Prophecy: Recommendation 666 Emergency Powers Incorporated Into EU Treaty
Here’s big news for students of end-times prophecy. The Assembly of the Western European Union has just released a consolidated version of the provisions of the “Lisbon Treaty” (the European Union’s new Reform Treaty) that relate to the EU’s common foreign and security policy. The document shows how the Lisbon Treaty incorporates the emergency powers from the Western European Union’s Assembly Recommendation 666. This means that, in the event of a crisis, the new High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy will have the same extraordinary powers to step in and take control of the EU’s military that the old High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy did. This appears to, in effect, enshrine Recommendation 666 into the new treaty. Compare the clause from the Lisbon Treaty with the correlating clause from Recommendation 666.The Lisbon Treaty says (see Article 16, page 10): 2. In cases requiring a rapid decision, the High Representative, of his or her own motion, or at the request of a Member State, shall convene an extraordinary Council meeting within 48 hours or, in an emergency, within a shorter period. The WEU’s Assembly Recommendation 666 says (see No. 12):
12. Support proposals for the WEU Secretary-General and CFSP High Representative to preside over the PSC and civilian crisis-management machinery and give him powers to convene the Council of the European Union in the event of an emergency;
Bjorn Freiberg, of Europe, a long-time contributor on the FP discussion board, talks about this in depth at his blog. To learn more about the prophetic implications of WEU Assembly Recommendation 666, read about it here. Staying tuned! –Holly Pivec
So who is the future target of this building of “emergency powers” being handed to this one man they call Mr. Europe? Would he really start a war against Jews and Christians worldwide? We need look no further than the Alliance of Civilizations. For up-to-date info, visit time, times and half a time. (Read his entry: Killing With A Clear Conscience) I would also like to share a December 27, 2006 post by Constance Cumbey:
An article by our reader and contributor affectionately known to us as “Rich of Medford” The final report of the United Nations’ Alliance of Civilizations (AoC) initiative was released last month. In addition to its usual goal of combating exclusivist ideology, the report contains some interesting elements:
1) Exclusivist ideology is defined as “those who feed on exclusion and claim sole ownership of the truth. (Christians, read John 14:6 as you consider this statement.)
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
2) The core issue identified to be the bridge between the West and Islam is resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
3) The global and problematic players in this conflict have been identified as the adherents of the three monotheistic faiths.
4) Failure to resolve this conflict will result in a failed Alliance of Civilizations.
Also noteworthy is that the AoC has identified the European Union’s Barcelona Process as one of the frameworks in which it intends to operate. For those unfamiliar with the Process, it is the foundation of the EU’s political, economic, and social policy. The Process, also known as the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, is represented as the only platform that can solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The social dimension of the Process, with implementation facilitated by the Anna Lindh Foundation, cooperates with the AoC and shares the common goal to combat religious fundamentalism worldwide.So what happens to the adherents of the monotheistic faiths if the peace process fails? Lucis Trust, one of the contributors to the AoC initiative gives us an idea. In its publication The Rays and the Initiations, Lucis Trust says that those faiths are but three dead and gone religions with Judaism being old, obsolete, and separative. Christianity, they say, has served its purpose and the new age Christ will replace the Gospel with a new truth. As for Muslims, they will accept the new age Christ as their Imam Mahdi “who will lead them to light and to spiritual victory.” The objective of the AoC, therefore, is “to enforce an Alliance of Civilizations against all those who…give prevalence…to a logic of division and confrontation.” Since the Alliance intends to be fully prepared to enforce its objectives by 2009, I suspect that’s when they will introduce their symbol. Timing is everything. The European Commission has just submitted a document to the author of the Barcelona Process that it is time to deliver. If the planners of the AoC really mean what they say, may God help us all. –Constance Cumbey
As we see from the above, NATO is connected to this military availability for future ”emergencies” as defined on the fly as needed for Europe to intervene through military and civilian means. So if global terror were to break out for some reason or another, by some religion, then a reaction to a global threat from fundamentalist religions as defined in the Alliance of Civilizations could begin. I wonder what the emergency could be that will unleash this war on the saints, beginning with Israel?
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
…the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
The abomination of desolation is when an idol is placed in the Holy of Holies on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It has happened once before and the rededication of the temple from that time is being celebrated now at Chanukkah. According to Bible prophecy the beginning of the great tribulation is when the man of sin, the prince of the revived Roman Empire, declares himself to be god in the Holy of Holies, setting himself as an idol to be worshipped. We’ve seen how zealous Jews react to this abomination of desolation at the Maccabean Revolt. I believe this explains the mortal wound of the man of sin from which he’s healed. For reasons stated in the coming times, I believe Israel will be back to Old Testament worship because of God’s intervention in the Magog invasion attempt.
“Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”
“The age of Nations must end… The Government of nations has decided to order their separate sovereignties into one government to which they surrender their arms.” | United Nation’s World Constitution
“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he takes a Luciferian initiation.” | David Spingler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations
But do not be afraid, because though this time may come, so is the day of the Lord. This is the blessed hope of them that love God. Read the other posts regarding Global Warming and the day of the Lord as well as the Escape of the Bride to the Marriage of the Lamb. If the HIStory, Our Future Bible studies are accurate, we don’t have much time left.
If you do not have a personal relationship with Yeshua (Jesus) and you desire that intimacy with the Creator, you can have that now. Read His Word (Bible) and obey it to the best of your ability, learning from mistakes and getting alone in prayer. He knows every though and that is your voice to Him as well as His to you, thought is the voice of the spirit realm. I’ve tried to assemble what I’ve learned to the Bible study guide, from where to look to define God to some amazing prophetic fulfillment that builds faith in God’s Word and gives Him the glory He deserves.
God will give you what you want, He doesn’t interfere with your free will. I pray you learn that you need to want Him because He is the only Truth. Not because I say so, I divert your focus to His Word that says it all. True love is selfless and giving. Learn who God is, He is love, and that’s why He died on the cross to take our sins on Himself as a free gift of love to you.
