Is this the introduction of the Pope and the Antichrist reigning together?
Mike: Do you see the Pope at the U.S. Congress as the introduction of the False Prophet and the Antichrist to reign together?
Irvin: The Bible teaches there will be two rulers in the Endtime – a political leader and a spiritual leader. In the book of Revelation chapter 13, we see an Antichrist and a False Prophet. In the Holy Roman Empire which has ruled Europe for the last 1,000 years there has always been two leaders. It all began in 800 AD when Pope Leo III put the crown on the head of Charlemagne saying, “I now crown you emperor of the Holy Roman Empire.” So for the next thousand years, the Holy Roman Empire ruled Europe. Well it sort of was dissolved with Napoleon in 1806 and everyone said the Holy Roman Empire is dead, but on November 3, 2009, Europe got together and signed a European Constitution for the first time and the Holy Roman Empire was officially reborn. Now that’s important because the Antichrist and the False Prophet will once again rule over as a political leader and a spiritual leader, the Bible calls them the Antichrist and the False Prophet. Now if you don’t believe that the Holy Roman Empire has been reborn as of November 3, 2009, let me give you four quick proofs. Number one: Their first money for the European Union – they put the picture of Charlemagne, the father of the Holy Roman Empire on it. Number two: They had their most leading publication, The Economist Magazine, they have one page devoted every single week to the latest developments of the European unification. The name of the page… the Charlemagne page. Number three: They give $1 million prize once a year to the states person that did the most the past year to bring Europe together. You know the name of the $1 million prize? The Charlemagne Prize. And there’s a building where you must go if you represent your country, who wants to join the European Union. There’s a place you must go – you must go to a building in Brussels Belgium, which is the headquarters. The buildings name? It’s the Charlemagne Building. Ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you that that is exactly what’s happening right now, we are watching the rebirth of the Holy Roman Empire.
