>>The U.N is the eighth and final beast of the Age. There are four manifestations of it's existance. They are about to evolve into the third stage which will be the image of the beast.<<
Maybe the image of the beast, but NOT the beast.
Yesterday I read the news that the EU Constitution was rejected by the voters in France. Here are some excerpts from some of the articles following the vote:
France overwhelmingly rejected the European Union's constitution in a referendum on Sunday, pollsters' projections showed, plunging the EU into crisis and dealing a possibly FATAL BLOW to a pact designed to make it run smoothly. Reuters 05/29/05
"There will be a big post-mortem. Brussels will say itís business as usual and theyíll try to carry on with the Constitution, theyíll try to carry on with ratification by other countries if possible. Tony Blair will try to wriggle out of it, saying that the Constitution has been KILLED by France and so there wonít need to be a British referendum. Times Online 05/29/05
France on Sunday night dealt a potentially FATAL BLOW to the European Union's constitutional treaty as voters resoundingly rejected it in a referendum.
A tattered European Union flag had been lowered to half mast in the heart of the Brussels' EU quarter even before the French polls closed at 10pm on Sunday night.
European commissioners and members of the European parliament speculated that the treaty might be REVIVED after the French presidential elections of 2007.

The 448-article constitution is intended to make the bloc more democratic, more efficient and better able to face global competition. It has to be ratified by all 25 members and rejection by a pivotal founding state has widely been seen as sounding its DEATH KNELL. Guardian Unlimited 05/30/05
Now read Revelation 13:
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 3 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. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
