Is Rome reviving?

I have been watching for a very important Biblical phenomenon to take place in Europe for over fifty years. It is a key piece of a prophetic scenario that must take place shortly before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. In chapters 2 and 7 of his book, the prophet Daniel predicted the successive rise of four Gentile world empires. God through Daniel said that these would be the only world empires that would rise before the coming of the Messiah and the establishment of His kingdom over the earth. These kingdoms were Babylon, Media-Persia, Greece and Rome. However, the fourth Kingdom would not be conquered but fade from power until it is miraculously revived again and rule for a little over seven years. Daniel predicts that Rome revive again through the power of a Satan-possessed man that will unite the ten-nations out of the ruins of the old Roman culture and people. His Biblical name is the “Antichrist.” Daniel interpreted the prophetic symbols concerning this prophecy: “Thus he said: The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth (Rome), which will be different from all the other kingdoms, and it will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it. As for the ten horns, OUT OF this kingdom (latterday Rome) ten kings will arise, and another (the Antichrist) will arise after them, he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings …” (Daniel 7:23-24 NASB)
According to this prophecy, Rome would fade from power between verses 23 and 24. Then it would be revived again initially in the form of ten nations out of the culture and people of the old Roman Empire. I believe we are finally seeing the groundwork of that predicted revival of the Roman Empire. Just listen to some electrifying quotes out of a recent article about secret plans being made to change the EU: “Senior Eurocrats are secretly plotting to create a super-powerful EU president to realize their dream of abolishing Britain.” … “Opponents fear the plan could create a modern-day equivalent of the ‘European emperor’ envisaged by Napoleon Bonaparte or a return to the Holy Roman Empire of Charlemagne that dominated Europe in the Dark Ages.” … “It sounds as if they are trying to go back to the days of the Holy Roma Emperor.” … “Such a merger would represent a massive shift of power into the hands of a single, unelected bureaucrat …The holder of this new office would be both Europe’s political and administrative leader, giving him far more powers than those given to the US president.”
