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.

New iPhone App Can Read Your Mind

In End -Time Deception, New World Order on January 21, 2011 at 7:06 am

Yes, this device is real.


It is my belief that technology is directly related to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Prophecies such as the Mark of the beast, a mark in the skin through which all goods on the planet are bought and sold could not even be conceivable until the innovations of computer technology of the past few decades. We also see prophecies such as that of the killing of the two witnesses of Revelation Chapter 11. The Bible tells us that the whole world are able to see their dead bodies in the street for three and a half days. Again, this can only be possible via satellite television.

Well now we see technology going even farther as there is an app and headset for the iPhone that can actually read your brainwaves. It allows the user to control the phone just by using their mind as well help you control your attention span and adjust “relaxation levels.”

The manufacturer of the device, Xwave assures on its website: “Yes. XWave is perfectly safe and ONLY LISTENS to your brainwaves. It DOES NOT transmit or send any signals.” Just the fact that they have to give this disclaimer is a little disturbing since the potential to send signals to the mind seems to be indicated.

Where is this all going? We will have to wait and see but the more we allow technology to enter our minds and bodies, the more realistic Bible prophecy becomes.

New York City: 41% of All Pregnanices End in Abortion — Worse for African Americans

In New World Order, Political Issues on January 13, 2011 at 8:25 am

Choose life


This is as disturbing as it gets. Not only has the Department of Health released statistics that 41% of pregnancies in New York City end in abortion, among African Americans it is a startling 61%. This is mass murder on an unbelievable basis. And the disproportionate numbers should not be a surprise when one considers the goals of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, who was a key figure in the eugenics movement, which sought to decrease and eliminate the non-White races in hopes of building a White “master race”. They were believers in the same racist ideologies that inspired Hitler. Here are some of her words:

“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
Margaret Sanger (editor). The Woman Rebel, Volume I, Number 1. Reprinted in Woman and the New Race. New York: Brentanos Publishers, 1922.

“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
Margaret Sanger. Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon’s Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.

“Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need … We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.”
Margaret Sanger, April 1933 Birth Control Review.

“Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying … demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism … [Philanthropists] encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant … We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.”
Margaret Sanger. The Pivot of Civilization, 1922. Chapter on “The Cruelty of Charity,” pages 116, 122, and 189. Swarthmore College Library edition.

Even if you are a pro-choice, there is no denying that the abortion movement was started with the intention of carrying out genocide against people of color in the United States. For more information, please look at this article on “The Negro Project”, a plan developed by Sanger, or look at the documentary below which exposes all of this. And today its effects are still clearly being felt as abortion clinics predominately are placed in minority neighborhoods, including its new mega-abortion mill in Houston.

It is time for Christians who understand the concept of murder to speak out against this. And as believers we should always be ready to condemn racism. This is one of the worst epidemics facing the Black community today. And again, I wonder, where is the first African American President on this issue? Oh that’s right, he is just approving more legislation to make abortions even more accessible and available for women in later terms of their pregnancies. Do not be deceived! The Bible is clear: God knows us from the moment of creation and even before then (“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee..” Jeremiah 1:5). Pray against this genocide. Pray for the country to come to its senses and elect leaders who will actually address these issues. There are millions of lives as stake.

Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Joshua’s Great Battle — A Preview of War With the Antichrist

In Bible Study, End-Times/Eschatology, New World Order on December 27, 2010 at 3:09 pm

Joshua praying for the sun to "stand still"

In my first piece on “Types and Shadows”, we examined the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar in the book of Daniel and how so much in his career was a foreshadow of the actions of the end-times Antichrist. As we continue in this series, I wanted focus on the book of Joshua, a book that is not often thought of as end-times prophecy, but is. In fact, although this article will focus on one chapter, the case can be made that the entire book of Joshua is a preview of the book of Revelation.

Types and Shadows

Now this article is based on the idea of “types and shadows” in the Bible. This is essentially the Bible’s way of foreshadowing future prophetic events through Old Testament Scripture. Here are some passages that highlight this:

Ecclesiastes 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. 10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Hosea 12:10 I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines a ‘similitude’ as: 1. Likeness; resemblance; likeness in nature, qualities of appearance; as similitude of substance.

The Lord has used much of the historic events of the Old Testament to provide a preview of future events. Whether it be the Passover of Exodus foreshadowing the crucifixion of Christ on the cross and His shed blood which provides the remission of sins or the 12 tribes of Israel and the twelve disciples, there are many similitudes throughout the Bible. What will happen in the future has happened already in some form or fashion. This is also the case for prophecies of things to come. Thus when reading the Bible any future prophetic event should have a type or shadow in a prior part of Scripture.

Joshua’s Great Battle

Joshua was a mighty military leader and great servant to The Lord. As he led the Israelites into the Promised Land, he wages numerous military campaigns. There is one battle in Chapter 10 of Joshua that raises lots of prophetic, end-time red flags: the battle against Adonizdec.

Joshua 10:1 Now it came to pass, when Adonizedec king of Jerusalem had heard how Joshua had taken Ai, and had utterly destroyed it; as he had done to Jericho and her king, so he had done to Ai and her king; and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel, and were among them; 2 That they feared greatly, because Gibeon was a great city, as one of the royal cities, and because it was greater than Ai, and all the men thereof were mighty. 3 Wherefore Adonizedec king of Jerusalem, sent unto Hoham king of Hebron, and unto Piram king of Jarmuth, and unto Japhia king of Lachish, and unto Debir king of Eglon, saying, 4 Come up unto me, and help me, that we may smite Gibeon: for it hath made peace with Joshua and with the children of Israel. 5 Therefore the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon, gathered themselves together, and went up, they and all their hosts, and encamped before Gibeon, and made war against it.

From the earliest chapter of the Bible Jerusalem was a Holy City of The Lord (see Genesis 14, when Melchizedek, the King of Salem – or Jerusalem, encounters Abraham). But by the times of Joshua, the city had been turned over to paganism. The nations in the Promised Land at the time of the book of Joshua were usurpers, working in Satan’s grand scheme to keep the Israelites out of the Promised Land and destroy the lineage that would lead to the Promised Messiah, Jesus Christ.

The Names

Adoni-zedec in Hebrew means “King of Righteousness” or “King of Justice.” He was an Amorite-Canaanite King at a time when that culture was deeply into the worship of the gods Baal and Ashtoreth, with pagan sacrifices being conducted in the high places of Jerusalem.1 There is great irony then in his name as “King of Righteousness.” But the prophetic value of this cannot be missed. As the end-times Antichrist, will also enter into power “peaceably” (Daniel 11) and present himself as a substitute for true Lord of Righteousness, Jesus Christ. Reading Revelation 13, which describes much of the Antichrist’s or Beast’s reign, it is apparent that the people of the world are amazed by the Antichrist inasmuch as they eventually agree to worship him. So he too will be a false “Righteous King.”

On the side of The Lord, we see even more prophetic confirmation in Joshua. The name Joshua or Yeshua in Hebrew, means “salvation.” In fact Joshua is the Hebrew form of the name “Jesus” and of course in the end times it will be Jesus who defeats the Antichrist (Revelation 19). So as we see another link to end times prophecy, the type and shadow of this chapter becomes more clear.

Jerusalem

Adonizedec operates out of Jerusalem. In the end-times, the Antichrist will also operate out of the Holy City:

1 Thessalonians 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

The Apostle Paul prophesied that the Antichrist or “son of perdition” will sit in the temple of God, proclaiming that he is God and exalting himself over The Lord. The temple of God at that time was and can only be in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah. There is no temple there today (as it was destroyed in 70 AD by the Roman Empire) but this verse has led many to believe a future temple will be built. Just as Joshua defeated the pagan usurper to reclaim the Holy City for the Lord, so too will Jesus Christ return to Earth and defeat the false Messiah Antichrist and reclaim the entire world for God.

A Plan of Destruction

Adonizedec’s hostility towards God’s people is obvious. Once he heard of the victories of Joshua and how the Gibeonites made peace with him, Adonizedec wanted to wage war with them just for extending peaceful relations the God’s chosen nation. It seems the “Roadmap to peace” with Israel was just as treacherous then as it is today, with nations still unwilling to achieve peace with Israel. And thus Adonizedec sought to destroy them. So too will the Antichrist seek to persecute and kill the saints of God in the end-times (Revelation 13:7).

The pagan King then forms a confederation with ten kings to go wage war against the Israelites by attacking one of their allies. In the end times, the Bible informs that the Antichrist will also form a confederation with 10 Kings:

Revelation 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

We know from Revelation 13, that the Antichrist’s government will be global. He will have control over all nation of the world. However, prior to being the sole global dictator, he will share his power. The final world government shall be comprised of ten regional rulers who will be in power for “one hour” with the beast. The angel sent to explain the visions the Apostle John views in chapter 17 identifies the horn on the beast as these rulers. Daniel chapter 7 also identifies the 10-horned beast with an 11th horn rising from them that would become the Beast of Revelation. After the set time of “one hour”, the ten regional rulers will then conspire to transfer all of their power and authority to the Beast giving him complete global control. And the end goal of this confederation is the same as it was in the times of Joshua: to wage war and conquer God’s people.

10 Region Government Today?

For many people who have researched global government or the One World Order, they have come across articles or illustrations referencing a map that was created by the Club of Rome, which in its own words is a ” …a global think tank and centre of innovation and initiative.” The map envisions a world divided into 10 regions:

Although this may not be the final map used in a global government. It is this author’s belief that it will be something similar. Some prophecy scholars advocate that the Antichrist’s Kingdom will be a “revived Roman Empire” comprised mostly of present-day Europe and the Mediterranean. However, this does not jive with the descriptions of the Antichrist’s authority in Revelation which is global. And with the European Union formed, African Union coming to fruition and similar, regional confederacies springing up, this prophecy is becoming more and more of a reality.

Signs in the Sky

In this incredible battle that took place between the Israelites and the confederacy of Adonizedec, there are some very powerful and unique prophetic markers that again show a type and shadow to the book of Revelation and the end-time period to come. The enemies of Israel were first hit with hailstones from the sky:

11 And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.

In Revelation, one of the judgments we read is very similar: Revelation 16:21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Joshua’s battle was also famous for being the day the “sun stood still”: 12 Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. 13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

Now some may question how the sun can “Stand still” if the Earth rotates around it. But we must remember language of the ancient times and perspective. The sun could be described as moving even if it is the Earth that is moving but from the perspective of an ancient writer, if the Earth did not rotate for a day it would appear that sun “stood still.” Even today, we use terms like “sunrise” and “sunset” as a reflection of how the sun appears from our perspective. In Revelation, at the time the Biblical “Day of The Lord” starts, when God Almighty Himself will rise to pour out His punishment on the sinful world, we see similar unprecedented signs:
Revelation 6:2 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood

In both instances, the sun and the moon have unprecedented actions that would surely signify God’s Hand at work. Interestingly, in Revelation, these signs are accompanied by a devastating global earthquake that sends all the rich and powerful people of the world into hiding in holes and caves.

15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

In Joshua, the signs of God gets a similar reaction:
16 But these five kings fled, and hid themselves in a cave at Makkedah. 17 And it was told Joshua, saying, The five kings are found hid in a cave at Makkedah.

Joshua eventually defeats Adonizedec and all of the usurper Kings and in like manner Jesus will defeat the Antichrist with the brightness of His Coming (Revelation 19).

The other key component of this battle is that God Himself fights for Israel. The book of Joshua further describes it as a day like no other. This is later referenced in Zechariah 14: ” 1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle”. [emphasis added]

This passage which is prophesying about the final end time battle of Armageddon, again links the Joshua Chapter 10 battle to the end times. That battle with Adonizedec was the day when God fought and once again in the Day of The Lord (during the end times tribulation), God will once again rise up to fight on behalf of Israel.

As we see in this overlap of the signs in these battles we can conclude that Joshua was indeed a type of Jesus Christ and his war to lead God’s nation into the Promised Land was a shadow of Jesus Christ’s future defeat of the Antichrist and reclaiming the Earth for the saints of The Lord. These remarkable patterns that The Lord has put in the Bible help inform us when we are trying to interpret prophetic Scripture. Any future event should have a prior type in Scripture and we should study the Word diligently to find out to confirm what we may think to be true. And all of this will help us to keep our eyes open to world events as the Word of God becomes more and more of a reality.

It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings [is] to search out a matter. — Proverbs 25:2.

Germany Implements Mandatory Micro-Chipped ID Card

In End -Time Deception, New World Order, Political Issues on September 3, 2010 at 5:45 am

Your Whole Life on One Card

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.

Germany has become the latest country to use RFID micro-chipping technology in order to keep track of its citizens. These mandatory national ID cards are being promoted as a way to ease identification of citizens and make transactions and activities much more efficient:

“The new ID card will contain all personal data on the security chip that can be accessed over a wireless connection.
The new card allows German authorities to identify people with speed and accuracy, the government said. These authorities include the police, customs and tax authorities and of course the local registration and passport granting authorities”.

So in essence, a card is carrying every citizen’s personal information while also serving as a homing beacon to locate them (unless of course you decide to leave your passport/ID/credit card-all-in-one card at home).

Now as I have stated before, I am not being dogmatic and stating that RFID chips are the Mark of The Beast. But this type of technology serves as proof that indeed such a system as the one described in Revelation 13, where all purchases and sales made by every individual person on the planet, are controlled by a single mark in the person’s right hand or forehead. It’s also a grave sign that privacy in the wireless internet age is becoming less and less of a reality.

UPDATE

And I have also located this clip which is prepping America for this coming micro-chip implementation.
