7 February 1992 Treaty of Maastricht (Treaty on European Union (TEU))

Exodus 15 A song of deliverance after going through waters, "Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased." (Exo 15:14-17) The waters were bitter, but "There he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them” (E15:25).

Psalm 69“Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul... I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: should I restore that which I took not away? (P69:1-4) But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, Yahweh, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation. out of the deep waters, let not the waterflood overflow me (P69:14) Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap. Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake." (Psa 69:22-23)

Waters are symbolic of "peoples, multitudes, nations and languages" (Rev 17:15) and Europe is the deep waterflood which will seek to overflow Israel. On this day it began to become mighty, but the waters will be held in obeyance until God's people pass over.
