Mexico Mandates That All Children Be Issued Biometric ID Cards

In New World Order on February 26, 2011 at 3:26 pm

All your personal information - now on one chip

World Net Daily reported on the Mexican Government’s recent Executive order to issue biometric ID cards to all children 17 years old and younger that will contain personal information, all ten fingerprints and an iris scan. Biometric Identification is able to store personal physical identifiers on a person (i.e., your fingerprints or images of your iris, which are unique to every individual) and have the microchip with the data placed on a card which can be scanned for verification of one’s identity.

To carry out the presidential executive order, the Mexican Directorate General of the National Population Register plans to go to all elementary schools in Mexico schools in Mexico to record the required biometric information and issue individual identity cards. According to the article:

The Mexican National Institute of Geography and Statistics estimates that in 2005, there were 10.5 million Mexicans between 5 and 9 years old, 11 million between 10 and 14 years old, and 10 million between 15 and 19 years old.

Reasonable estimates are that by the end of 2012, Mexico plans to issue more than 25.7 million biometric identity cards to the nation’s children 18 years old and younger.

Again, we see technology that can provide full identification becoming more and more of a reality. Now that personal data can be stored on a chip and consolidated into one convenient card, how long before our financial data, credit card and baking information is contained on the card as well? Thus allowing all buying and selling to be done on one easy card, with no chance for identity theft. The benefits to society of a system like this would be obvious. And where this can all lead from a Bible prophecy standpoint is even more obvious. The prior article entitled “What Does the Bible Say About The New World Order”, detailed how Revelation Chapter 13 of the Bible describes an end time world, ruled by the Antichrist and predicated one a globalized, one world government, a single, unified religion for all people and an economic system that is also used by the entire world. The final end-times economy will be centered on a system with an individual “mark” for all people of the world that will control all buying and selling.

Revelation 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

While we cannot say what the mark is or will look like, the technological capabilities to institute such a system have now clearly arrived. Never before has humanity had the capability to create a single object through which all financial transactions can be conducted. But of course with today’s data storage and satellite transmission technology, it’s very feasible and easy to implement.

Potential Precursor to the North American Union?

In addition to serving as an ID card for Mexicans, the planned roll out of the biometric ID will also help facilitate the “Global Entry Trusted Traveler” Program, a joint initiative between the United States, Mexico and Canada whose stated goal is:

Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Though intended for frequent international travelers, there is no minimum number of trips necessary to qualify for the program. Participants may enter the United States by using automated kiosks located at select airports

The Trusted Traveler program members will have their biometric information stored in a database, similar to the plan for Mexican children. And upon entry into a US airport:

At airports, program participants proceed to Global Entry kiosks, present their machine-readable U.S. passport or permanent resident card, place their fingertips on the scanner for fingerprint verification, and make a customs declaration. The kiosk issues the traveler a transaction receipt and directs the traveler to baggage claim and the exit.

Easy access to the US, at the tip of your fingers


The Canadian Border Services are doing their part by issuing a Trusted Traveler Card as a part of their FAST program (Free and Secure Trade). This will provide the same facilitated easy access across the Canadian border for those who are deemed “trusted” based on background check and in-person interview.

So what is the significance of this? Like the European Union, which has a similar type of ID for easy travel across the borders of member nations, the United States, Mexico and Canada are taking another step towards becoming at least for economic, trade and security purposes, a confederacy or Union. This effort under President George W. Bush was known as the Security and Prosperity Partnership or SPP. Now it has taken a new name as the Obama administration refers to it as the North American Leader’s Summit. Their own stated goal, as detailed on their webpage, states: “Indeed, in the 21st century, North America is defined not simply by our borders, but by our bonds.”

Since the meeting more initiatives have been advanced including a “Beyond the Border” declaration between the US and Canada, signed by President Obama which seeks to establish a “continental perimeter” that would encourages such measures as having Canadian law enforcement working in America. The Toronto Star reported that the government of Canada instructed employees and officials to keep the negotiation of the deal confidential until announcement.

American University Professor and Council on Foreign Relations member, Robert Pastor, has been outlining the steps necessary for a North American Union in published articles, presentations and most notably in his book: “Building a North American Community.” According to the World Net Daily article, the Beyond the Border Declaration takes its language from Pastor’s book “almost verbatim.”

Conclusion

As explained in the New World Order article,  global confederations are all a part of the governmental structure that will be in place right before the end-times Great Tribulation begins. Like Europe, Africa and soon South America, the United States is also moving the wheels towards a North American confederation of its own. While we cannot know the dates of when these things will come to pass, the signs of the end times are certainly increasing with each passing week.

Black Pro-Life Leaders Appluad Congress for Voting to Defund Planned Parenthood

In Political Issues on February 26, 2011 at 9:14 am

It looks like the word is getting around



Luke 1:41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:


In a piece of good news in the struggle to protect life in the womb, the National Black ProLife Coalition issued a statement thanking the Congress for voting to defund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider (a vote in the Senate is still pending).

The NBPC has also applauded the efforts of Congressman Paul Baron for speaking out on the fact that African American women are by far the most targeted for abortions in the United States by Planned Parenthood.

“Under the guise of family planning, black babies have been aborted at 5x the rate of whites, yet Planned Parenthood clamors for more, wanting taxpayer dollars to continue funding their genocidal agenda”, said Arnold Culbreath of Protecting Black Life. “As they rush to turn 100% of their clinics into abortion mills and build larger facilities in urban areas where blacks reside, it is clear they are carrying out their founder’s Negro Project, designed to control black births.”

As we have shown in previous articles, Planned Parenthood has a history rife with racism and genocide targeted at ethnic minorities, especially African Americans.

LiveAction, the college student-run organization that does sting operations to expose Planned Parenthood’s illegal practices, is also again sounding the alarm to legislators as Planned Parenthood not only turns a blind eye to potential statutory rape, but also provided services and even business advice to undercover actors posing as pimps working with teen prostitutes.
President Obama, the nation’s first Black President, recently criticized the LiveAction videos, saying:

“I think some of these issues get manufactured and they get a lot of attention on the blogosphere,” Obama responded. “I think that Planned Parenthood, in the past, has done good work.”

Congressmen Mike Pence, who is sponsoring the bill to defund Planned Parenthood, provided some clarity: “”The headlines and years of investigations speak for themselves. In 2002, Parenthood was found civilly liable in Arizona for failure to report statutory rape. In 2008 it violated reporting laws in Indiana and California. In 2009 it instructed a girl in Tennessee to lie about her age so she could get an abortion without her parents’ knowledge,” he stated.

It’s clear that despite being an icon, pioneer and hero in the African American community, President Obama is set on continuing a pro-life agenda and ignoring the tragic racist history of the abortion industry. As Christians, we should be ready to speak out against the killing of children in the womb as well as any racism in society. And of course, pray The President, members of the Senate and those in the community at large, have a change of heart.

Miley Cyrus’ Dad: “My family is under attack by Satan. I’m ‘scared for’ daughter Miley”

In Entertainment, Family on February 20, 2011 at 9:01 am

Billy Ray Cyrus knows who is really out to destroy his family

Biblical Principles

Ephesians 6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Deuteronomy 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. .

Many people have followed the recent descent of Disney Child Star Miley Cyrus into raunchy, rebellious behavior, which most recently included photos of her taking the drug salvia, an herb that has hallucinogenic effects on its users (and is legal in California). The one time squeaky clean, “Christian” TV star and singer has millions of adoring child fans of her “Hannah Montana” tv show, movies and music, making her wealthy many times over. And now 18, she has, like many Disney stars before her, taken a plunge into becoming a sexed up, rebellious young adult who seems to be publicly promoting her new, “wild-child” image in various outrageous performances, leaked photos and videos on the internet.

Rather than delving into the various “scandals” of Miley Cyrus over the past 2 years, I want to focus on her parents, since she, like all children are a product of the discipline, instruction and care, or lack thereof, of her parents or guardians (please note, that this does not excuse Miley Cyrus’ behavior), What makes her story interesting though is that this is the first time where a parent has spoken out about this issue in spiritual terms. Music Star, Billy Ray Cyrus, the father of Miley Cyrus, in a leaked interview with GQ, first reported by the Daily News, expressed total regret regarding the immense fame and commercial success of his daughter and the damage it wreaked on his family:

Among the most startling revelations is an admission that “Hannah Montana” “destroyed” his family and his fear that 18-year-old Miley could possibly end up meeting the same tragic fate that befell controversial stars that came before her – namely, Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain and Anna Nicole Smith.

“Every time something happened in Miley’s career, every time the train went off the track, if you will – Vanity Fair, pole-dancing, whatever scandal it was – her people, or as they say in today’s news, her handlers, every time they’d put me … ‘Somebody’s shooting at Miley! Put the old man up there!’” Billy Ray told the magazine about why he used to have such a strong public presence in his daughter’s life.

In addition to being manipulated by who he called Miley’s “handlers” to be a defensive Dad every time his daughter ended up in an embarrassing scandal, Mr. Cyrus also stated that the devil was behind the current crisis his family is facing:
Billy Ray didn’t place all the blame on those currently in Miley’s life. There are also evil forces at work, he claimed.

“Somewhere along this journey, both mine and Miley’s faith has been shaken,” he said. “That saddens me the most.”
His family, Billy Ray argued, is now being ruined by Satan.
“No doubt,” he insisted. “There’s no doubt about it.”

This is the true enemy of not just the Cyrus family, but all families: the Devil. God’s order was for a man to leave his parents, join a woman in permanent marriage and raise children in a monogamous relationship centered on His Word and righteousness. Satan, in his efforts to to undo and reverse God’s order, has been attacking the family unit since the first family of humanity. Not only did Satan seduce Eve into doubting God’s Word and thus eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (Genesis 3), the sin continued with their children as Cain, the first son of Adam and Eve, slew his brother Abel in a fit of jealousy (Genesis 4). Jesus had his own statement on the matter as well in the book of John:

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

In drawing this contrast, Jesus Christ pointed out the agenda of our spiritual enemy: Satan and his army of fallen angelic beings – to take as much from humanity and lead us into damnation.

Occult Influence

A Black Swan or a Fallen Angel?

Like many of the big music stars of today, Miley Cyrus’ videos have taken a turn towards the occult. Occult imagery is now becoming pervasive in music videos of young pop stars (a long overdue blog on this issue is coming soon). In here 2010 video, the aptly titled “Can’t Be Tamed”, a scantily-clad Cyrus is said to be making a statement about becoming a woman and “breaking out of her innocent, squeaky clean image. In her own words: “It’s the first step of growing up.”

An opening scenes shows visitors in a museum being led by a curator to see “..the rarest creature on Earth, known as Avis Cyrus.” The group is then led to a cage, where Miley Cyrus is in costume, dressed in a small black outfit and sporting enormous black wings. While the immediate reference that comes to mind can be a dark angel or fallen angel, the name choice of Avis also holds significance:

The Roman satirist Juvenal wrote in 82 AD of rara avis in terris nigroque simillima cygno (‘a rare bird in the lands, and very like a black swan’).[6] He meant something whose rarity would compare with that of a black swan, or in other words, as a black swan did not exist, neither did the supposed characteristics of the ‘rare bird’ with which it was being compared. The phrase passed into several European languages as a popular proverb, including English, in which the first four words (a rare bird in the land) are often used ironically. For some 1500 years the black swan existed in the European imagination as a metaphor for that which could not exist.

Interestingly enough there is a movie currently out called “Black Swan” the deals with a woman dealing with multiple personality disorders and mind control, who is encouraged and pressured by her handlers to “break free” of her shell. This is of course achieved through fornication and sexual exploration. (A very good detailing of the occult significance of that movie can be found here).

Conclusion

I applaud Mr. Cyrus for recognizing the true cause of the problems in all of us: sin, which was initiated in this world by Satan’s temptation. But the question remains, does he recognize the solution is salvation in Jesus Christ? Like many superstars before her, Miley Cyrus has fallen for the best Satan has to offer : money, power and fame. The cost though was any type of respectable image she had as a child role model, her own family and possibly her soul. Is Miley Cyrus saved? Of course it is possible, but from her own statements about her faith in the past, it is not clear. She stated in 2007 that she wanted to be a “light and testimony” for god but there were no public statements regarding her salvation that I could locate. Either way, her father’s pain and frustration should be a cautionary tale to parents yet again to raise their children to love and fear The Lord and to control what their kids are watching and listening to. Many of the pop stars of today, even the kiddie ones, are operating as tools of the world, promoting sinful rebellion every chance they get. Parents have an obligation to protect their home from these influences and pray for God’s guidance so they do not have the same regrets Mr. Cyrus is now experiencing.

ABC’s “V” Season 2: Alien Deception Continues

In End -Time Deception, Entertainment, Nephilim/Aliens on February 20, 2011 at 2:08 am

The Alien Agenda: Mingle themselves with the seed of men

In our first article about the ABC series “V” we went through many details to explain how the show promotes the idea of alien beings coming to Earth as the “saviors” of the planet and how this idea, which is also promoted by many figures in the New Age Movement, is one of that is very spiritually dangerous and can lead to much confusion in the church. As stated before, I do not believe in extra-terrestrial beings but the Bible is clear that fallen angelic and demonic beings do exist, have interacted with humanity in the past and will do so again in the future. Now in its second season, some of this blog’s initial predictions about the show have come to pass.

The Sons of God and the Daughters of Men

In our intial article we referenced the Nephilim, the hybrid offspring of the fallen angels of Genesis 6, who came to Earth, took human women as wives and had children with them:

Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

This illicit union by rebellious angels led to the global flood in which Noah and his family were spared on the ark. And as predicted, not only was this an important plot point on the V series, it has now been revealed in season 2 that this is the ultimate agenda of the alien Visitors on the show. Their leader, Anna, has offered a “gift” to humanity in the form of new cities which the aliens and humans can build together for peaceful coexistence. But the this gift is merely a ruse to sneak in alien “breeding vessels” into the Earth’s atmosphere and over these cities. Once the ships have landed, human will be taken aboard for breeding with male aliens. Again, we see the sins of Genesis chapter 6 being played out in pop culture. It is at this point we must remember the Biblical prophecy regarding this happening in the end-times:

The End Time Kingdom – Mingled With the Seed of Men?

The Book of Daniel tells us that rulers in the end-time Kingdom will 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. The phrase “seed of men” is a direct reference to reproduction and DNA. The idea that something other than man will try to join itself to man.

In ancient times, angels, false gods and titans were worshiped and venerated. They attempted to replace the true God of the Bible and “be like the most High” (Isaiah 14). This is covered more in detail in the Nephilim article. And Jesus warned: Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. If there is an “alien phenomenon” today it is certainly spiritual beings deceiving mankind, not extra-terrestrial life.

The Bible also informs us in the book of Revelation, of two instances when fallen angelic beings return to Earth:

Revelation 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.. 7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

As was explained in the Nephilim article, the bottomless pit is where the Bible instructs us that the angels who sinned with human women were imprisoned:

Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

Both passages reference angels who were imprisoned for fornication-related sins in the time of Noah. The angels who participated in the “marriage” with women were sentenced by God to be imprisoned in the bottomless pit until the time “judgment of the great day.” It is this author’s belief this time period is the “Day of The Lord”, the end times outpouring of God’s wrath on the unbelieving world which commences at the opening of the 6th seal of Revelation Chapter 6. Also interesting to note is that in the supernatural appearance of these beings, their faces are like those of human men (also of note is that the King of the bottomless pit is Appolyon, which is just another name for the ancient god Apollo).

The second instance of fallen angelic beings returning to Earth occurs in Revelation Chapter 12:

7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. …12… Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

During the midst of the final years of Earth or the Great Tribulation, fallen angelic beings will be banished from Heaven and sent to Earth. And this event is so distressing that a voice in Heaven cries “woe” for all the people living on the Earth at that time. Just as in the days of Noah when the floods of God’s judgment came from rain from the skies and water bursting from the ground, we see that the end times judgment in the form of evil angelic beings will come from both the sky and the bottomless pit. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be

The Vatican Joins with The Visitors

Another point made in our first “V” article regarded their reference to the Vatican’s real life statements regarding alien life. Lo and behold, in Season 2, not only do the aliens visit the Vatican, they make a pact to have the Vatican support the aliens in their statements and sermons. This allegiance (done in an episode called “Unholy Alliance”) is made after Anna demonstrates a “blue energy” alien power that she threatens will cause the people of the world to view her technology as “miracles.” The show continually makes subtle references to Anna being a “god” in the eyes of the people (and some not so subtle, as they had people actually worshiping her in the first season).

Note in this promo video, the V agenda being played out:

The religious and spiritual overtones here are quite obvious. Note at the :18 second mark that the alien leader Anna, is positioned in front of a statue of the Virgin Mary. Like in the image at the top of this article, where she in the “Virgin with child” pose, she is being presented as a juxtaposition. Discerning Christians will note that while Mary was the birth mother of Jesus and a believer, she is not to be worshiped or venerated in any special position.

Some other interesting plot points from Season 2:

The aliens caused a “Red rain” to fall from the sky all over the Earth in the season premier. While this liquid was to truly help with human female fertility for “breeding” the aliens explained that it would solve the problems of global warming and human pollution. This was exactly what New Age guru and promoter of Maitreya, Benjamin Creme said about alien life forms as quoted in our initial article.

In addition to the Catholic Church, the alien leader Anna is seeking to bring all religions of the world into alliance with the Visitors. Revelation 13 informs us that all people will worship the end-times antichrist. Could it be that the end time religion will start heading towards an ecumenical, “all paths lead to Heaven” religion? Events of today certainly seem to indicate that.

Humans are easily seduced and deceived by the Visitors

Tyler, the son of the lead character and alien Resistance leader Erica, is discovered to have DNA that is missing certain components. To no surprise, the aliens on “V” are obsessed with human genetics and have secretly been experimenting on human women for reproductive purposes for decades. Tyler was once such subject and his DNA was altered for something else to be added to it, as the show explains. He is now a central figure as the alien Queen plans to have Tyler “mate” with her own daughter, who will soon be queen. In the original pilot episode of the series, Tyler is even offered an apple by the his future alien breeding partner, a clear allusion to the “forbidden fruit” of the Garden of Eden and the temptation of the serpent, Satan.

Why is this being done?

I have received some very good feedback to this article and to my radio show on the same subject and I wanted to address several issues:

1) How can TV affect what people think — The website Vigilant Citizen (an excellent site that I visit frequently) has a thorough, well-researched article on the effects of the Mass Media on the human psyche. By citing many experts in the fields of brain study, psychology as well as public relations, it details how motion pictures and television can influence the human subconscious and guide future thinking and decisions by the individual recipients. I would definitely recommend reading this piece.

We must also remember that the Bible speaks of the spiritual influences that can affect us unwittingly. Ephesians 2 states:

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

This passage is drawing a contrast between born again believers who have been “quickened” or given eternal life through Jesus Christ, with unsaved people who are still spiritually “dead” in their sins. In verse 2 identifies that the “course of the world” is guided by the “prince of the power of the air.” This is another name for Satan. And the verses states that his spirit is working in the hearts of unsaved people. There are spirits of evil at work against us all the time. This is why Paul also states in the same book:

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The enemies of Christians and the non-believer alike are spiritual powers and we cannot underestimate their ability to influence us. And the mass media provides a platform to expose the human mind to sin, occult imagery and all manner of ungodly behavior. This is why the Bible repeatedly warns us to be in control of our minds (Galatians 5:22) and to control whatever is influencing us (Romans 6:12-13, 1 Corinthians 6:9-12; James 4:6-7).

2. Do TV and movie directors know all about these ancient Biblical concepts like Nephilim and fallen angels?

— While it may seem unlikely that hollywood writers are taking these ideas into account when drafting their scripts, the similarities and parallels to Bible prophecy are difficult to ignore. I do not believe writers are all sitting together and making deals about these ideas, but there is no accounting for where one gets their inspiration from. To see another example, here is an ad for the Axe men’s body spray:

I believe the ideas and imagery in the ad speaks for itself.

Conclusion

While we do not know when the Great Tribulation will begin or what role “alien life” will play in the future, we do know for certain from the Bible that fallen angelic beings are going to return to the Earth. And Jesus’ main warning to His disciples was “do not be deceived.” The end times will be marked by it, both in society and in the church itself. Will Christian be ready for the appearance of supernatural beings or beings presenting themselves as “extra-terrestrials”? Are pastors preaching about Bible prophecy on these topics so that believers can be confident that the Bible does indeed have answers for this and so that they can share this knowledge with others? It is definitely time that we start doing so.
