The Vacant Seat Number 666 in the European Parliament
Report on the opening of the Fifth Elected Parliament of Europe in Strasbourg and its occupancy of the new Parliament Buildings.
Ian R.K: Paisley, M.P., M.E.P.
The recently elected Fifth Parliament of Europe met on Tuesday, 20th July, 1999, in its new glass building which cost the taxpayers of Europe an as yet uncalculated sum of billions of Pounds. The first meeting, due to begin at 10.00 a.m., did not start until 10.30 because the amplification system, which cost millions of Pounds, was defective. No doubt more defects in this Crystal Palace will be manifested in the days to come.
Incidentally, the Members of the European Parliament had no say whatsoever in where the building was to be located, what its design was to be, what amount of money was to be spent on it, or how it was to be furnished. The French Government forced it both upon Members of Parliament and upon the Governments of European Union countries, Germany and the United Kingdom being made to foot the exorbitant bill. These two countries are Europe's pay slaves.
The prophetic significance of the European Union has been revealed as the saga unfolds. [See our two articles on "The Conspiracy behind the European Union".] First, the sign which it chose as its symbol was the Woman riding the Beast. This comes from a prophecy in Revelation 17. The depiction of the harlot woman was reproduced on the centenary stamp of the European Union, in a huge painting in the Parliament's new building in Brussels, and by a huge sculpture outside the new E.U. Council of Ministers Office in Brussels. The new European coinage, the Euro, bears the same insignia. The Tower of Babel has been used on the posters emanating from Europe – a truly suggestive prophetic sign.
Now, a massive Crystal Palace tower (officially called the Tower Building) houses the Fifth Parliament of Europe.
It is certainly a building of the Space Age. The seats of its massive hemicycle are designed like the crew seats in the Star Trek space machines. There are 679 of them – but wait for it! While these seats are allocated to Members, one seat remains unallocated and unoccupied. The number of that seat is 666. The relevant section of the seating-plan provided to each Member reads as follows:
Revelation 13:18: "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." That is 666.
Today this scripture is being fulfilled before our very eyes.
The Antichrist's seat will be occupied. The world awaits his full and final development. The Lord will destroy him by the spirit of His mouth (the Word of God) and by the brightness of His coming (2 Thes. 2:8). The coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

"And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth." (Genesis 11:5-9)
Note the statement shown on the poster "Many Tongues One Voice", inverts God's judgement on Babel. Note also that the normal European stars have been inverted to a pentagram, which shows the horns, ears and beard of Lucifer.
modeled after the Dutch artist Pieter Brueghel's famous 16th century painting, "The Tower of Babel"

At night the number is lit up in red.
"So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." (Revelation 17:3-5)
One of the signs in the verses above also describes the "Woman Riding The Beast". Here are photographs of that sign, and others.
An image which the European Union has chosen as one of it's symbols is the "Woman Riding The Beast". In 1984, the European Parliament issued a centenary stamp which contains that image.
The image of the "Woman Riding The Beast" also appears on a huge painting in the European Parliament building, and is a huge sculpture outside the European Union Council of Ministers Office, both located in Brussels, Belgium.
I don't know. I'm still trying to find the original source of the seating roster mentioned in the article above.
That doesn't mean that the EU has nothing to do with the prophecy given in Revelation, just that the lady and bull symbolized Europe long before the apostle John was even born.
I'm not sure it's big enough for Hitlery. Besides, Bill needs a gig right now.
They sure seem to have gone out of their way to offend religious conservatives with their symbols, although I see the woman/bull image as more Minoan, rather than Revelations. But they have managed to hit a lot of hot buttons.
I'm not going to sweat the EU too much. They've shown themselves to be a pissant operation long on hot air, short on everything else. I will take the opportunity to mock their new building whenever I can, however.
This is amazing. There are many Biblical scholars who believe that the European Union will be the ten nation confederacy spoken of in Daniel. And indeed, the EU is elbowing it's way more and more into the affairs of sovereign nations. As a matter of fact, today's New York Times has on its front page an article the title of which includes the startling fact that the WTO has ruled that "export tax ruled illegal- Washington to get time to rewrite its law" and that the EU can impose $4 billion in sanctions. Can you imagine? Where were we when the European Union began deciding the trade policies of the United States?
It's so exciting to be living in these times and to see the eternal plan of God marching on to completion.
Is seat number 666 vacant because there is only one man who can fill it?
Maybe. Or it may be like buildings not having a thirteenth floor. If it is then it is. If it is not then it is not. Either way all will work out as planed.
Actually, a nearby "city"'s police department doesn't issue Badge #666. I'm sure there are more instances.
I'm surprised the Euros are "respecting", er, caving in to "[Judeo] Christian 'mythology'".
Saving it for the Hildebeast is the best, most rational explanation. Although, it wouldn't be much of a challenge
for her to finish off Europe. They're well on their way to becoming a third world h&llhole as it is.
Probably willing to worship the beast too.
Europeans will be the first with their backs up against the wall when the revolution comes. Yeah, right. An asteroid will hit first.
It would be hysterical if the vacant seat 666 was taken by a guy named Crowley.
According to the Bible, during the Tribulation, a world leader will arise who will, to make a long story short, come on the world scene as a man of peace but eventually, after 3 1/2 years, force everyone to worship him and will force everyone to take a "mark" that includes the number 666 somewhere in the mark. The Bible says that anyone who will not take the mark will be killed. This guy will be controlled by Satan and is commonly known as the "Antichrist".
A couple of years ago the prophecy scholar Dr. Jack Van Impe had discovered that each "6" in the number "666" (when it will be used by the Antichrist) had a certain and different meaning but of course I have forgotten what it was. Maybe I will e-mail him and ask him about that.
At any rate, that's it in a nutshell. There are those who believe that the new chips that have recently been trotted out that are intended to be implanted under the skin are a significant development in the journey toward the "mark".
They're doing neither.
As the line in the movie goes; "Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action."
I would not characterize using a poster depicting the Tower of Babel to promote the EU, and then designing a building (EU Headquarters) inspired by a similar painting of the Tower of Babel, and then officially calling the building "The Tower" as showing "respect" or "caving in" into Christianity.
Why would you?
On the contrary, I would characterize the actions and choices of the EU as sticking to the game plan, as outlined in the Bible.
In any case, it goes much deeper than what I've presented here in this thread.
You can mock and scoff all you like, "laughing out loud," but intellectually you're outside the loop on this subject matter.
In the movie "The Omen" didn't a priest comment that the three sixes correspond to the "unholy trinity", as a mirror image to God, the Son and the Holy Spirit?

I'm outside the loop as far as missing the Eurocrats pretentions. Probably even more outside the loop that
the European taxpayers are so dumb to let them do it in the firstplace, and even dumber to pay for it. (my down
to Earth guess its because its a very big public works endeavor)
How come the Brits aren't up in arms over "The Tower" bit?
I know Saddam thinks he's the reincarnation of Nebuchadnezzar. What's the matter with him? Too worried
about living until tomorrow to make a stink with the Brits?
I don't consider the Babel references an insult to Christianity. More of a longing for the past, any past,
since Europe appears to be currently on some sort of plateau of social incompetence. "Babel" is a
distraction from the political incompetence of the moment, IMO.
I'm more concerned about the current "anything but Christianity" attitude of political, educational, and
media idiots, and the fawning over the "religion of peace" eventhough the followers use it to justify random
killings, suicides, and slavery.

Attack the messenger, eh? Attack the messenger, and ignore the message?
Frankly, you do indeed have a "big problem", and it's oriented around spiritual blindness. How's that working out for you?
Seems to be a trade publication for funeral directors rather than some death cult.
Tishman is a big real estate outfit in NYC. They own lots of skyscrapers, not just 666 Fifth Avenue.
However, this story is quite intriguing to me. The resemblence between the painting and the poster is significant -- not a mistake, in my opinion. Also, the woman riding the beast is uncanny.
I'm not ready to come to a definitive stand on any of it -- not right now. I'm just going to trust the Lord and watch how world events unfold. But I'm going to keep my eyes on the European union. I have for years.
Speaking of 666: Have you heard the theory about UPC symbols? I'll try to find it on the Internet and bring it back to this thread.
In addition, the UPC has three pairs of double bars which extend down a bit further than the rest. The three pairs appear at the beginning, middle, and end of the bar code. These are not labeled. They are two thin lines -- exactly the same as the pair of bars representing the digit six.
Please don't label me a tin foiler on this -- I haven't bought that this has anything to do with anything, and I'm not saying there is a conspiracy or plan behind it. However, as I said before, I do believe that what the Bible says is true. It does talk about a mark (666) without which people will not be able to buy or sell.
Stay Safe !
