The EU and Border Control

As mentioned before on this site, I believe it is very possible that the "confirming" of the covenant in Daniel 9:27 could be a reference which describes the manner in which a peace covenant is literally confirmed (admittedly, this is just one possibility for interpreting this scripture but I believe it is a strong possibility).

There have been many "covenants" which have been signed, the most recent being the Oslo Peace Accord which was signed during the Clinton administration. This was never "confirmed" as violence broke out almost immediately. It seems obvious that whenever "The" covenant is agreed upon, there will have to be some sort of border control (and ground troops in the region beyond border control), in order to maintain peace in the region - thus, "confirming" the covenant.

For this reason, we have been watching the EU and their building of an infrastructure under Catherine Ashton (see "EEAS": European External Action Service). Today, we see yet more progress towards this ultimate goal:

EU agrees to boost border agency's powers

On the eve of a two-day summit covering migration issues as well as the Greek crisis, the EU's main institutions have agreed to give extra powers to the bloc's border agency Frontex on human trafficking and other cross-border crimes.

The deal reached on Wednesday (22 June) by EU governments, the European Parliament and the European Commission will allow Frontex to buy or lease its own equipment - such as helicopters and terrain vehicles, so as to make it less dependant on assets lent by member states.

Pending formal approval by the European Parliament in September, the agreement will also make it more binding for member states to stick to their commitments when pledging border guards to the Warsaw-based agency, who will now be deployed as "European border guard teams" whenever a country is struggling to secure the EU frontier.

In a bid to stem irregular migration, Frontex will also be allowed to launch technical assistance projects and deploy liaison officers in countries of origin and transit and play a bigger role in return operations.

On the human rights side - always a matter of concern when it comes to border guards dealing with refugees and paper-less migrants - Frontex will now have a "fundamental rights officer" and be part of a "consultative forum on fundamental rights."

The new powers are likely to be welcomed by EU leaders, as a latest draft of conclusions to be adopted on Friday reads.

One senior EU official noted that it is the first time that EU leaders will discuss migration, border controls and the enlargement of Schengen at the same meeting, for a long time considered "too difficult to talk about."

At the same time, we see this interesting article:

Ashton's secret diplomacy upsets EU states

EU foreign relations chief Catherine Ashton has annoyed some member states by taking part in a secretive meeting about the Middle East peace process.

Luxembourg's openly pro-Palestinian foreign minister Jean Asselborn hosted the informal dinner about the Arab-Israeli conflict at the Senningen castle in the grand duchy on Sunday (19 June), on the eve of an EU foreign ministers' meeting.

The event was attended by British foreign minister William Hague, German foreign minister Guido Westerwelle, Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt and the high representative.

A number of Arab diplomats also came. The list reportedly includes the secretary general of the Arab League, Amr Moussa, Egyptian foreign minister Nabil Elaraby, a delegate from Jordan, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat and a delegate from Saudi Arabia.

There was no Israeli participation and no guests from staunchly pro-Israeli EU countries such as the Czech Republic and the Netherlands.

The one guest who made a public remark was Bildt, who wrote in his blog that the event was "devoted [to] possibilities of a peace process in the Middle East".

Whatever was said at the dinner, Ashton's participation upset some EU countries.

"Member states meet in many formats, some of which are regional ones. But it raised eyebrows. If it's an ad hoc thing, it's OK. But if this kind of event becomes normal behaviour, then it could be a problem," a diplomat from one of the excluded EU countries said.

A diplomat from another excluded member state said it fortified Ashton's image of being pro-Palestinian rather than a neutral broker.

So to summarize today's news, we see a strengthening of the EU's capabilities for military use of border control and at the same time secretive meetings are being held regarding 'Middle East Peace' which exclude Israel and any representatives who are considered as "pro-Israel".

Yep. It looks like things are right on schedule.

I don't know the Hebrew, but could "confirm" mean "enforce"? Also, I read somewhere that "rumors" of wars could mean "insurrections", which is a good description of the kind of conflict seen all over the world right now-- including China's "stealth" conquest of the US and the (staged) riots of the ME.

Anonymous said...

Paula, my Hebrew dictionary says as the meaning of "confirm"

To be strong" by impl. to prevail, act insolently: exceed, confirm, be great, be mighty, prevail, put to more (strength), strengthen, be stronger, be valiant.

Greek for "rumors" says
prob. from word #183.(183 word says a prim. root. To wish " covet, (great) desire, be desirous, long, lust after.)

SO very interesting!

Paula said...

Thanks Anon.

It looks like the other meanings I came across might not be primary but still seem within the semantic range. Perhaps a better word than 'insurrection' would be 'revolution'. Wars are typically between nations, but much of what we're seeing is within them, practically civil wars.

I wonder if the UN's "imposition" of international laws might qualify as "confirming"?

I wonder too. WOuldn't that be something!

How's this for "Border Control"?!?

Delta adopts Saudi 'no-Jew' fly policy

Creeping Shariah! It looks like Delta is passenger code-sharing with Saudi Arabian Airlines to ban Jews and holders of Israeli passports and will be the first Shariah-compliant airline in the United States...

DrNofog..WOW..I wouldn't have believed that if I didn't read it for myself! That is really amazing story.

Wow! speechless right now.

Al Gore endorses 'fertility management' to save planet
'Educating and empowering girls and women ... that's the most powerful leveraging factor to stabilize population to combat global warming'

My guess is that HIS parents should have thot about it 1st!!

Dylan said...

Global warming, really? And fertility control can help? First of all, global warming doesn't exist, secondly, where did hd get that idea?

Scott said...

LOL DrNo....Not to mention that Gore has 4 kids himself...And that new mansion which sits right on the coast (what about the rising waters???...What about his carbon footprint?/....Well, I guess the "rulers" don't have to worry about such - thats for the working class after all.....

gearedup2go said...

DrNo brought up a sore subject that frosts my flowers. I have to share a border with a state that once touted Gore as the Veep. I wish he would consider more bran in his diet. He's so full of it his eyes are brown.

There--said it all in one breath. Now gimme my CO2 credit.

DrNofog said...

Hey, that's my line: "He's so full of it..."

I thot you'd be more 'frosted' about Delta's 'no-Jew' fly policy.

Paula said...

So, if Gore is saturated with "it", then isn't he emitting way too much methane? That's illegal or something isn't it?


gearedup2go said...

Yep Paula, call Gore if you want your fields fertilized. His *formula* doesn't stink.

DrNo, my flowers got frosted back when all the UN white tankers started showing up. ;-) You can read about it in the headlines for a day section--unless my reply gets sent to the cloud.

now let me get this charges us soldiers recently one thousand dollars each for their bags to return home to the us and wont let jews fly. well maybe it should be a muslim only airline! oh those sexy stewardess in their hot burkas. you go girl! lol Jesus where are you? Really, please hurry up will ya? I'm starting to get a little nervous.
Look my prayers lately have been really stressing this one thing-the only thing that has to happen before the rapture. Yep, one last and currently ongoing thing. The fullness of the gentiles! This morning I asked God to help me be an effective quick witness because there is little time left and a lot of people need saving. I compared it to fishing all day and catching nothing, until Jesus said let down your net and then the catch was so great the boat nearly sank. So Jesus I am letting down the nets, please fill em to overflowing with gentiles! A few Jews would be nice too :) In your precious holy name Yeshua! Amen Lovn all of you so much-ally

Alice said...

Ally, you always inspire me. Thanks!

DrNo, have you ever heard what Chuck Missler says happened 9 months after the Roswell incident in 1947?

...wait for it...wait for it...

....Al Gore was born!!!

Well, Im still looking for the AC....has not shown up yet.....



Paul's words are true.....


WVBORN56 said...

Anon/you missed Paul's point the way I read it....he was trying to comfort the Thessalonian church by reminding them they could not be in the tribulation yet even though things were bad. First they were still there and there was no AC on the scene. Paul was pre-trib all the way. Just try reading it in context. He just told them in I Thessalonians the rapture would occur first. Also Paul just three verses later says the Holy Spirit will be taken out of the way (rapture)and no longer hold back or restrain the AC.

Dear 56,

excuse me, but it does NOT say that the restrainer is the HS...

not with the NIV Bible I use.

that is JUST speculation on
your part. As far is your other
arguments, HEY, they are totally
wrong and u should know that.


that is only fair to Paul

isn't it ??

Alice-that dutchsinse on you tube was right on. 7.4 in alaska aleution islands less than an hour ago. another birthpang this close together? Whoa pack them bags and bundle up the babies cause he is on the way brothers and sisters, on the way. ally

DrNofog said...

In ref to your mention of "gigantic cracks in the earth are appearing all over the globe...", after watching the Elenin vids where he mentioned about the earth's axis, magnetic poles, and aquifers shifting with the big quakes [due to Elenin's gravity tunnel connection], it seems to me that it would be the aquifers shifting that are causing the giant sink holes and cracks...

Also, Dutchsinse has a vid of weather satellite images clearly showing a huge chem-trail, classic cross-hatch pattern off the coast of so.California pushing a Mexican hurricane away from moving up north to Cal...

Clearly these guys do know how to play with the weather!

Yer thots?

Caver said...

DrNo, and all....interesting info and thanks. Got to agree, and further....just idol thoughts.

If all this is true....huge IF...then the constant shifting, intensifying, and decreasing lines of magnetic and gravitational forces caused by this dense mass moving toward us is going to cause an ever increasing but shifting force not only on earth but the entire solar system. I doubt any one, or computer system, is going to be able to accurately predict half of what is going to happen.

From the prophetic word, I think we all know the majority of the world's population is not going to be wiped our but life will continue....but possibly in a vastly different manner. MrsC and I have been discussing/comparing the predictions and scripture. There is a huge correlation but the time lines we all assumed to be spread out may, in fact, be very condensed.

Again, things could...COULD...get very condensed and intense. Again, IF, half of this is true then its going to be a great witnessing opportunity and chance to show Christian generosity. I suspect the generosity will be readily accepted and the witnessing much less so.

Folk, again IF this stuff turns out to be true, I suspect it is time to review just how to witness and do as Glen Beck advises....decide exactly what you believe and why. Get it very clear in your mind because it just might have to be second nature in a few months time.

B&S, at the Caver household we are going to be praying for great conviction and discernment during the coming months.

Remember, we are in Jesus and He is in us. Fear is not part of the equation.

Alice said...

DrNo, I saw that video of Dutch's with the cross-hatch chem trails! It really kinda blew my mind. You called it "classic". Have you seen or heard of this sort of thing before?

Ally, did Dutch have a video about the AK earthquake last night? Guess I'm going to have to become a subscriber because I'm missing things...

Dear Anon~

I can see why there is much confusion regarding the various translations used in the different bibles studied by us all.

For simplicity I will use the amplified bible here:

Proverbs 3:5
Amplified Bible (AMP)

5Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.

Having said that, as I am sure you know, we all need to operate in the Holy Spirit for guidance and understanding. He will reveal much. Since there are many tenses, past, present and future used through all of these--no translation is perfect other than the original word of God. The languages spoken in Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, etc. use their tenses differently than we do today. Just look at how many Americans speak today. So many words have the same meaning by our own conversions through life but that doesn't make it proper english either. (Sorry, I don't know who to do the link thing :)

Translations Q?'s

I took the scriptures that you are referring to and provided a link below through so you can have the chance to study this in over 100 variations. A Bible study is never easy but with the help of the Holy Spirit it can help us not to add more than what was designed. I hope we all can slow down to the rhythm of Gods will on our lives and I bet we will find a common ground among all translations.

When I see vs. 2:9 I think of these false teachers who are putting their hands on many...playing in the land of spooky...pooky as I call it and it too is a form of the anti-christ. In that sense it has been revealed before the return of Jesus. I can't lean on my own understanding so I must delve into the word some more and find out what God was trying to tell us.

I hope this helps. I am not taking sides but I can see how this can be a point of division instead of education at a time like this. Let's pray and see what unfolds as far as wisdom. Let's truly having fun unpacking the word.

God Bless!!

Hi Again~

One more different view on this. I will just provide the link and maybe there is some better understanding in this.

God Bless!!

Alice-yes, dutch gave the earthquake update on the 22nd of June. I watched it, wrote some commentary and went back to check out some chemtrail info when poof...someone posted about the earthquake. I went to usgs and verified the quake and then returned here to post. I can't thank you enough for letting us know about him. Funny how the hs is using all kinds of people and things to pull it all together right now so we who watch are able to understand! Thank you Jesus! ally

Alice said...

You're more than welcome, Ally, but as you said, just passing on info so we can collectively pull it all together. :)

Fwiw, we live very near dutchsinse and hope to meet with him sometime very soon. I wonder whether he's a Christian, due to the "all seeing eye" (covered by a heart) and pyramid he uses as his logo. I pray he does know the Lord. Thankfully, I noticed that many seem to be witnessing in their comments right there on his video uploads!

gearedup2go said...

GG, you have made an excellent point in seeking His guidance when reading His word. The Holy Spirit has never failed to bring forth a particular verse or chapter when studying the scriptures. The bible is truly the living, breathing Word of God. : )

One verse that is brought to mind as we read these disturbing headlines:

2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Scott said...

Just to follow-up on something else posted re the quakes - this is interesting

Anonymous said...

Alice-I don't know if he is a Christian or not, but I wrote to him on his website and thanked him for trying to get the word out about all the manipulation/natural disasters and that I found out about him through this blog. If you look carefully, he has a red circle with a line thru it surrounding the pyramid which stands for no nwo! He thens splashes a heart on top and says "much love"
coming out of a totally different background from most of the people here(most likely, ya never know). I am guessing he is young and definately aware and chooses to be involved with light and love but he may not know Jesus per sey? I'm sure we have all known a non believer that is strong morally and a very kind person but hasn't met Christ yet. I don't know?
I did tell him I was praying for his safety tho...the gov't apparently has been trying to stop him. I don't think they like it when people wake up. And he may be waking up a whole lot of people :) -ally

Alice said...

Ally, very cool that you've written to him, and more importantly, prayed for him! I will do the same! And your guesses about him echo mine, fwiw.

Scott, you beat me to that last post above. I am amazed at the visual of the ENTIRE earth we get from the software he has. And how about that action in Yellowstone?!?!?

Anonymous said...


Yes..I agree with your scripture!!

Also, I notice if I leap into something without asking him to handle things first, you will most certainly see that my thoughts are not his -which makes my actions not his either (ha ha). My human nature could not compare to his loving, calm, yet truthful answers and outcomes.

Sometimes it's a hard truth we hear but instead of me focusing on what I didn't get, I remind myself how happy he must be that I am at least trying to please him by finding the right answer to share with his other children.

Just thinking of this Agenda 21 stuff as a mother...whew....weee..what a test for my soul. I keep reminding myself that at least we will not be here for that. Then I think of the medicines being offered to the young girls like guardasil (is that the one?) for the virus protection and can't help but wonder if that was the intent for that product all along. See how the mind can go in a blink of an eye :) His word reigns me back in.

God Bless!!


Scott said...

I found the Yellowstone information very very interesting to say the least. One of these days that thing is gonna blow and when it does, it will be something else. I want to see some more of his videos when I get a chance - there are several linked along the right hand column on the youtube link...I want to see what he has been saying over time, but it is interesting indeed. .
