Is daar 'n moontlikheid dat die tien tone waarna verwys word, in die droom van Nebukadneser, die volgende unies kan wees?
1. African Union
2. South American Union
3. European Union
4. North American Union
5. Mediterranean Union
6. Central American Union
7. Gulf Union
8. Caribbean Union
9. Asian Union
10. Asian Pacific Union.
Hierdie inligting is op die internet beskibaar, dit is geen geheim nie. En net soos wat tone kort is in vergelyking met die grootte van die res van die liggaam, net so kort kan die tien tone (Unies) se heerskappy wees, sou dit plaasvind (een uur lank saam met die dier - Openbaring 17:12).
Die verwagting is dat dit ongeveer dertig jaar gaan neem om al die unies te vestig, vanaf die vestiging van die eerste unie. Die voorloper, die EU (Europese Unie) het tot stand gekom in 1993. Die samevoeging van die verskillende streke of unies om een gesindheid te bewerkstellig, kan slegs met geweldige intimidasie, manipulasie, geweld en ekonomiese skommelinge gepaard gaan.
Geld-standaarde sal onder druk kom, om sodoende ‘n eengeldstelsel te kan skep. Is dit die rede vir die aanhoudende agteruitgang van die wêreld-ekonomie wat al hoe meer dreigend en as internasionale ramp vir ons voorgehou word? Hoe gaan die ekonomie herstel word? Is dit alles nie nou besig om te gebeur nie? Die strewe is alreeds na ‘n eenwêreld-regering en word deur verskeie leiers oor die wêreld verkondig. Watter doel gaan dit dien, om ‘n verskeidenheid van geldeenhede as ruilmiddel te gebruik, in ‘n eenwêreldregering situasie?
Wat ná die tot standkoming van die tien unies gaan gebeur, word ook duidelik in die Bybel uitgespel. Die tien unies sal onder een president (koning) oor die wêreld heers (Openb 17: 12). Daar sal ‘n eengeldstelsel wees en ‘n valse vrede sal heers.Dit is net logies dat die president ‘n wêreldheerser sal wees wat ooreenstem met dít wat vir die Antichris bestem is, aan die einde van die tyd. Die tydperk kan aanbreek onmiddellik nadat die tien unies gevestig is, dertig jaar vanaf 1993.
Tegnologie is so gevorderd dat alles wat in die verlede tydrowend was, nou blitsig kan geskied. Wanneer die unies gevestig is, gaan ons die tydperk van die tone binne, en ons weet al teen hierdie tyd dat die tone ‘n baie kort tydjie verteenwoordig, wat die tydperk van die groot verdrukking simboliseer. Markus 13 en spesifiek vers 19, spel 'n verdrukking uit soos daar nog nooit was en nooit weer sal wees nie!! (Vers 19: Want daardie dae sal daar ‘n verdrukking wees soos daar nie gewees het van die begin van die skepping af wat God geskape het tot nou toe, en ook nooit sal wees nie.) Erger as in die tydperk van yster?

DUBAI | Fri May 18, 2012 2:12pm EDT
DUBAI (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's thrust for a Gulf Union, driven by fear of Arab Spring contagion and spreading Iranian influence, has stumbled on misgivings among smaller neighbors about a loss of sovereignty and increasing domination by Riyadh.Gulf diplomats, officials and analysts expressed surprise that Saudi Arabia had opened itself up to such a public setback.
The union proposal, initially designed to contain Shi'ite Muslim dissent in Bahrain and counter the growing sway of Shi'ite Iran, surprised Gulf Arab leaders when King Abdullah first unveiled it at a summit in December. Rather than fade away, it acquired momentum when a Saudi minister outlined plans for shared foreign and defense policy last month.
Yet when the meetings ended on Monday, there was little hiding the fact that some leaders in the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) had put the brakes on the project, if not shot it down entirely. "These things need to be looked at in depth," said Ghanem al-Najjar, professor of political science at Kuwait University. "You don't just decide that you will have unity, by trying to create some sort of unified body against Iran and to handle the development created by the Arab uprisings," he said, referring to street revolts that have toppled several dictators since early 2011 and have rattled GCC member Bahrain's monarchy.
It will "take time" to get all Gulf countries on board, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal told reporters after the GCC summit, explaining that Gulf leaders wanted to know "details and details of the details" of how Saudi Arabia imagined a "union" bringing them closer than they are now. He even stated baldly that there was "no step to have a special relationship between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia" - despite fanfare to the contrary in pro-government Bahraini media - while admitting both leaderships would welcome a closer association.
"They had no idea really what they wanted the union to look like, then they came on Sunday to try to work things out and couldn't agree. By Sunday night there were strong rumors it wasn't going well," said a Qatar-based analyst familiar with the talks. Saudi officials were angry and disappointed, he said. People with access to the room where the leaders met noted few smiling faces, in contrast to most such events, and even sensed anger among some of them. Revealingly, heads of state from Oman and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) did not attend the summit, which brought leaders from the other three member states - Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait.
OMAN, UAE, KUWAIT OBJECTIONS - The Saudis envisage close economic, political and military coordination and a new decision-making body based in Riyadh, replacing the current Secretariat of the 31-year-old GCC. Reports from officials, diplomats and media suggest that Oman, Kuwait and the UAE mounted the strongest objections to the union proposals, fearing being lorded over by the Saudis as well as difficulties in integrating varying social and political systems. A Saudi spokesman was not available to comment.
"The UAE will not accept a single country taking over a union, so that issue has to be clear," a UAE official told Reuters, pointing to the UAE's 2009 withdrawal from a monetary union over Saudi insistence that Riyadh host the central bank. Asked if he thought the union would eventually happen, the official added: "Let's just say it will take more time."
Saudi Arabia is by far the biggest and most powerful state in the group of major, U.S.-aligned oil and gas producers. Although the six states look similar on the surface - Arab, conservative Muslim and with similar social customs - there are wide differences of tribe, history, sect and geography among them, particularly in Bahrain with its Shi'ite majority, as well as in their degree of openness to Western culture. Oman, which has long sought to protect its identity deriving in part from a distinctive Indian Ocean coast and maritime tradition, said as early as 2006 that it would not join the as-yet unrealized single currency project.
“The UAE may not be as keen on a stronger union because they may worry about Saudi Arabia being dominant within that," a Western diplomat said.
MISSILE SHIELD DISPUTE
Dubai-based defense analyst Theodore Karasik said the UAE was also concerned that rushing into a Gulf Union could endanger progress already made in delicate defense negotiations. The UAE and Saudi Arabia are arguing over where to locate the central command of a Gulf missile shield that the United States has pushed them on as the best means of defense against Iran, but they are reticent about sharing data.
"A GCC military technical committee has been working on a shared anti-ballistic missile plan for the last few years and now there's a debate about where it should be based - the UAE or Saudi," Karasik said. Kuwaiti parliament speaker Ahmed al-Saadoun said equal levels of political openness in each country should precede a closer political compact. Saudi Arabia has no elected parliament, while Kuwait has the most lively political culture. "Freedom of expression and the right of popular participation in decision-making..., we hope (that) will be achieved in all GCC states shortly so the union can be established," Saadoun said on Twitter.
"Leaders of Kuwait, Qatar, UAE and Oman expressed concern about a loss of identity of individual states and pointed to differences in law between the countries," the Kuwaiti daily al-Qabas commented. "A lot of GCC decisions have still not been implemented. It would be better to get these done first." Even the rise of Iran over the past decade and the Arab Spring uprisings have failed to put all GCC six on the same page, while lingering border disputes have often marred ties among states where personalized, dynastic rule is the norm.
While Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the UAE want a strong policy to stem Iranian influence in the region, Qatar and Oman have hedged their bets by nurturing good relations with Tehran.
The only country to wholeheartedly welcome the fast track to Gulf Union appears to have been Bahrain, where many see the proposal as a way of crushing an uprising led by majority Shi'ite Muslims who they believe have backing from Iran. "I believe the union between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain will happen 100 percent, with maybe the others coming afterwards," said Anwar Esaki, a Saudi analyst and ex-adviser to the cabinet. Bahrain, whose economy relies on oil from a field shared with Saudi Arabia, allowed Riyadh to send in Saudi troops in an initial attempt to suppress the protests last year.
But the turmoil has revived, economic growth has been cut in half and a sense of crisis pervades an island state increasingly divided by sect where hardliners on both sides gain ground. Iran has strongly objected to the Saudi move to formalize its influence over Bahrain, with parliamentarians saying it would deepen divisions on the island and speaker Ali Larijani even suggesting it should be Iran that Bahrain integrates with.
Nabeel al-Hamer, media adviser to Bahrain's King Hamad, tried to reassure supporters afterwards, promising a Riyadh summit in coming months to sign a unity charter including Qatar. Bahrain's opposition movement dismissed the entire project as just the latest manoeuvre by aloof, entrenched rulers to put off the day when they cede powers to an elected government.
"This is an attempt to escape a political resolution by putting Bahrain under the hegemony of Saudi Arabia, which wants to show it is the big power in the region," said political activist Abdulnabi Al-Ekri. "I think it will be a failure."

9) Asian Union
Overview - ESTABLISHMENT
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN, was established on 8 August 1967 in Bangkok, Thailand, with the signing of the ASEAN Declaration (Bangkok Declaration) by the Founding Fathers of ASEAN, namely Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.
Brunei Darussalam then joined on 7 January 1984, Viet Nam on 28 July 1995, Lao PDR and Myanmar on 23 July 1997, and Cambodia on 30 April 1999, making up what is today the ten Member States of ASEAN.
AIMS AND PURPOSES
As set out in the ASEAN Declaration, the aims and purposes of ASEAN are:
1.To accelerate the economic growth, social progress and cultural development in the region through joint endeavours in the spirit of equality and partnership in order to strengthen the foundation for a prosperous and peaceful community of Southeast Asian Nations;
2.To promote regional peace and stability through abiding respect for justice and the rule of law in the relationship among countries of the region and adherence to the principles of the United Nations Charter;
3.To promote active collaboration and mutual assistance on matters of common interest in the economic, social, cultural, technical, scientific and administrative fields;
4.To provide assistance to each other in the form of training and research facilities in the educational, professional, technical and administrative spheres;
5.To collaborate more effectively for the greater utilisation of their agriculture and industries, the expansion of their trade, including the study of the problems of international commodity trade, the improvement of their transportation and communications facilities and the raising of the living standards of their peoples;
6.To promote Southeast Asian studies; and
7.To maintain close and beneficial cooperation with existing international and regional organisations with similar aims and purposes, and explore all avenues for even closer cooperation among themselves.
In their relations with one another, the ASEAN Member States have adopted the following fundamental principles, as contained in the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia (TAC) of 1976:
1.Mutual respect for the independence, sovereignty, equality, territorial integrity, and national identity of all nations;
2.The right of every State to lead its national existence free from external interference, subversion or coercion;
3.Non-interference in the internal affairs of one another;
4.Settlement of differences or disputes by peaceful manner;
5.Renunciation of the threat or use of force; and
6.Effective cooperation among themselves.
The ASEAN Vision 2020, adopted by the ASEAN Leaders on the 30th Anniversary of ASEAN, agreed on a shared vision of ASEAN as a concert of Southeast Asian nations, outward looking, living in peace, stability and prosperity, bonded together in partnership in dynamic development and in a community of caring societies. At the 9th ASEAN Summit in 2003, the ASEAN Leaders resolved that an ASEAN Community shall be established.
At the 12th ASEAN Summit in January 2007, the Leaders affirmed their strong commitment to accelerate the establishment of an ASEAN Community by 2015 and signed the Cebu Declaration on the Acceleration of the Establishment of an ASEAN Community by 2015.
The ASEAN Community is comprised of three pillars, namely the ASEAN Political-Security Community, ASEAN Economic Community and ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community. Each pillar has its own Blueprint, and, together with the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI) Strategic Framework and IAI Work Plan Phase II (2009-2015), they form the Roadmap for and ASEAN Community 2009-2015.

The ASEAN Charter serves as a firm foundation in achieving the ASEAN Community by providing legal status and institutional framework for ASEAN. It also codifies ASEAN norms, rules and values; sets clear targets for ASEAN; and presents accountability and compliance. The ASEAN Charter entered into force on 15 December 2008. A gathering of the ASEAN Foreign Ministers was held at the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta to mark this very historic occasion for ASEAN.
With the entry into force of the ASEAN Charter, ASEAN will henceforth operate under a new legal framework and establish a number of new organs to boost its community-building process.
In effect, the ASEAN Charter has become a legally binding agreement among the 10 ASEAN Member States.
