Route 666 - Revealing The New World Order And The Mark Of The Beast
It May Be Here Sooner Than You Think!
O' Beloved, I believe that the Antichrist could make his appearance in the near future. This leader of revived Roman Empire now known as the European Union will sit down with Israel at a peace table when Israel agrees to a contract involving other nations. (see Daniel 9:27).
For 2,500 years, there was no nation called Israel - not until 1948, when she raised her six pointed Star of David. From 1948 until 1979, Israel was in a constant state of military preparedness for war. Not until 1979 was she willing to make her first concession and actually sign a peace treaty with another nation. Thus on Monday, March 26, 1979, Israel and Egypt signed their historic pact. This contract, however, was neither the sign nor its fulfillment because it lacked basic ingredients. The contract spoken of in (Daniel 9:27) must be signed in the presence of the western leader (the Antichrist) and with many nations.
The Antichrist who comes out of the revived Roman Empire will portray himself as a man of peace (see Daniel 11:21), but he honors the God of forces [armed forces] (Daniel 11:38). He comes to power on a platform of peace. In fact, he gets the nations to sign a peace agreement for seven years. (Daniel 9:27) says, He shall confirm the covenant [of peace] with many for one week [actually shabua" or literally 7 years].
However, in the middle of the seven year period, the Antichrist dishonors his treaties and makes the last forty-two months the bloodiest in world history (Rev. 14:20).
Christians will not know who the Antichrist is before the Rapture, however. Scripture clearly teaches that the Rapture, our Blessed Hopeof (Titus 2:13), takes place before that man of sin" makes his appearance, or is revealed"(II Thessalonians 2:3,4,8).
That's why (II Thessalonians 2:7) says, For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [hinders] will let [hinder], until he be take out of the way.
Since Jesus lives in our hearts (Romans 8:9), that means we are the ones removed. Immediately after that, ... shall that Wicked one [Antichrist] be revealed" (II Thessalonians 2:8).
Only after the hinderer-the Holy Spirit, who lives in the hearts of believers-is removed, will the Church find out the identity of the infamous Antichrist. Therefore, only those who are left behind will become acquainted with this monstrous dictator at the inception of the Tribulation hour. During the reign of the coming Antichrist, individuals world-wide who do not receive the Mark of the Beast-666- will be put to death. (see Revelation 20:4).
If people want to survive at that time, they will have to take the mark, for without it, they cannot buy or sell (Revelation 13:16,17). On the other hand, I am certain there will be ways to bypass accepting the mark and still survive. For instance, Jesus, speaking about this particular hour, said to His people, the Jews, Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains" (Matthew 24:16). Perhaps they will raise their own crops.
All others through out the world, that were "Left Behind", will only escape eternal damnation by Martyrdom. Those that refuse the "Mark Of the Beast" and refuse to "Worship The Antichrist" will be executed for their now and new allegiance to Jesus Christ. They will be called God's "Tribulation Saints"
What Is The Rapture?
The rapture is God's evacuation plan for the planet earth. All Christians believer's, who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, and have their names written in God's book of life, will be evacuated and rescued from a decaying and dying world.
First of all Christ returns to the earth to rescue and evacuate all the believers. A short time later he returns to the earth with the believers, to destroy His enemies and to set up His Millennial kingdom on the earth, to restore and rebuild the earth and we shall be forever more with the Lord to rule and reign with Him forever.
How close are we to a world government and a world economy with every person being tracked by surveillance? Consider the following recent news items that many have overlooked:
New Poll Shows That Most Americans Favour The United Nations
According to a Reuters report, a new report commissioned by the U.N. indicates that more than 70 percent of American voters look favorably at the United Nations although nearly half are not sure what it does aside from peacekeeping." Surprisingly, Reuters said, . . .even Republican voters, whose party leaders are the most critical of the world body, gave the organization a 57.3 percent approval rate...among all ages and racial, education and other groups polled, women showed themselves far more appreciative of the United Nations than men 78 percent to 62 percent." The study also showed that 48.7% of those polled were not familiar with any projects of the U.N. other than peacekeeping. 69% said agreed that the United Nations was effective in keeping the peace, promoting human rights and helping developing countries climb out of poverty" while only 32% agreed that the United Nations had a bloated bureaucracy" which weakens U.S. sovereignty." (Rev. 13:4,7,8, 16)
Common Cureency similar To Euro Discussed For North America
A Nando Times report dated January 18, 1999 from Toronto said: The launch of a common currency in 11 European nations has sparked debate in Canada and Mexico over whether North America's three trading partners should adopt a comparable monetary union. But don't expect a NAFTA-style EURO any time soon.
A BBC report said: The Argentinean Government is considering plans to swap its currency, the peso, for US dollars in a bid to insulate the country against the economic crisis in Brazil. The blue-print for the dollarization of the economy was prepared by the President of the central bank, Pedro Pou, at the request of President Carlos Menem.
The BBC said that to create monetary stability, Argentina wants to:
(1) - Negotiate a treaty of monetary association with the United States, adopting the US dollar as its national currency."
(2) - Offer other countries across the Americas to join the treaty, effectively creating a Pan-American monetary union."
(3) - Adhere to strict fiscal discipline, similar to the Maastricht criteria that form's the basis of Europe's Economic and Monetary Union.
(4) - Get a share of the income received by the US Federal Reserve for printing dollars."
(5) - Open its markets to imports from the dollar zone and negotiate better access for its products to the US market.(Ezekiel 7:19)
Central Asian Bankers looking For Stability Would Like A common Currency
Associated Press said that at a meeting of eleven of Asia's central bank chiefs with Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, European Central Bank President Wim Duisenberg, and central bankers from Mexico, Argentina, Saudi Arabia and the Czech Republic and Central Asian nations hard hit by the region's financial crisis actively sought international help from the world's wealthiest nations to take a more active role in stabilizing foreign exchange markets." The notable part of the report, however, demonstrated the lean toward globalism when it said, Some bankers suggested Asia might someday end up with a single currency similar to the EURO, launched Jan. 1 by the European Union, though they acknowledged that this cannot happen any time soon, if at all.
Post Human Century
In light of prophecies relating to the latter days, the following excerpt from an Opinion, Commentary, Interactive Forums article in Interactive Week (billed as The Single Source for the Internet, Intranets & Infrastructure) is interesting.
Tom Steinert-Threlkelds article The Post Human Century Awaits said: ...Given that computer speed now actually appears to be doubling every year, the prognosis is relatively straightforward. By the year 2025 or perhaps 2020, the ordinary personal computer will have the same capacity as a human brain. Then, a gap will quickly build up between the evolution of the human brain and its electronic or, some would say bioelectronic, equivalents.
Within 10 years, that so-called personal computer would have the brain power of a small village; and by mid-century, that of the entire U.S. population. Here's where it gets scary. To try and keep pace, it's easy to envision humans asking for and getting memory strips and processing sheets implanted inside their skulls and connected to the tissue of their brains...
The question is whether human organizations be they governments, or corporations [or an individual?] see (Revelation 13:11-18) are ready to deal with this merger of [a] man and machine mentality in time to preclude a post human species from achieving the worst of our science fictional fears: pre-eminence in determining the course of human affairs...
As my other reports have shown in the past, many technologies are in place now that could be used or enhanced to provide every human being with a unique identification mark and control mechanism, such as an implantable microchip, with computer, or satellite tracking to facilitate a truly global government and economy. Those who have trusted the Saviour can rejoice, however, that they will be spared from this coming totalitarian state. (I Thess. 4:16-18; Rev. 3:10).
Satellite Surveilence Of individuals Using GPS.
A Wired News article recently said: "Security-Link, a subsidiary of telecommunications giant Meritech, said the Satellite Monitoring and Remote Tracking system, or SMART, allows corrections officials to watch an offender's every move. It gives prisons and jails the ultimate electronic monitoring solution when they need it most, said Security-Link project director Ed Maier."
Of course, one can only speculate as to who prisoners" may be in the future. The same technology that uses electronic ankle bracelets for tracking could also be effective with bio-implantable microchips such as "Digital Angel" implantable and GPS trackable. (Rev. 13: 6-7)
Let Us Pray Together--
PRAY: "God be merciful to me a sinner. Receive me now for Christ's sake. Cleanse me from my sin by your precious blood, shed on the cross for me; lead me to be Baptized and fill me with your Holy Spirit. Teach me to pray each day; to read Your will for my life from your word, the Bible; and help me to worship and serve You in the fellowship of your church. I thank you Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN!
