Means Total Surveillance of Livestock, too…

The National Animal Identification System (NAIS) is set up to put RFID tags in all livestock.  This means total surveillance of all livestock.  It is mandatory by January 2008.  This means if you have one chicken, one horse, one cow, one sheep, one goat, one bison, one sheep, one goat, one llama, one alpaca, one turkey, or one duck, etc – you must register, the premises and the animals.  Who do you think will be next?  You and me.

GPS Device Finds Bank Robbery Suspect
Cincinnati, OH — Police say modern technology foiled an old-fashioned bank robbery.  A teller placed an electronic Global Positioning System device in a bag of stolen money, allowing police to track down a suspect in just 42 minutes Thursday.
    “Around here (GPS) is still relatively rare,” Hamilton County sheriff’s office spokesman Steve Barnett said. “But with the advancement in technology and the continued success of catching bank robbers, soon I would hope that other financial institutions would jump on board.”   Authorities said that after William Ingram, 46, left a U.S. Bank in suburban Colerain Township, the GPS device tracked him to a car dealership in Hartwell, where he was returning a Honda that he had borrowed for a test drive but actually used as a getaway car.  When Ingram was confronted, money began spilling from his pockets, officials said.

Three R’s: Reading, Writing, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips
Gary Stillman, the director of a small K-8 charter school in Buffalo, New York, is an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) believer.
    While privacy advocates fret that the embedded microchips will be used to track people surreptitiously, Stillman said he believes that RFID tags will make his inner city school safer and more efficient.

  Stillman has gone whole-hog for radio-frequency technology, which his year-old Enterprise Charter School started using last month to record the time of day students arrive in the morning. In the next months, he plans to use RFID to track library loans, disciplinary records, cafeteria purchases and visits to the nurse’s office. Eventually he’d like to expand the system to track students’ punctuality (or lack thereof) for every class and to verify the time they get on and off school buses.
    “That way, we could confirm that Johnny Jones got off at Oak and Hurtle at 3:22,” Stillman said. “All this relates to safety and keeping track of kids…. Eventually it will become a monitoring tool for us.”
    Radio-frequency identification tags — which have been hailed as the next-generation bar code — consist of a microchip outfitted with a tiny antenna that broadcasts an ID number to a reader unit. The reader searches a database for the number and finds the related file, which contains the tagged item’s description, or in the case of Enterprise Charter, the student’s information.

Euro currency notes may be radio tagged
Hitachi is rumored to be in talks with the European Central Bank about embedding radio tags into euro banknotes.
Radio tags the size of a grain of sand could be embedded in the euro note if a rumored deal between the European Central Bank (ECB) and Japanese electronics maker Hitachi is signed.
    “RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags also have the ability of recording information such as details of the transactions the paper note has been involved in. It would, therefore, also prevent money-laundering, make it possible to track illegal transactions and even prevent kidnappers demanding unmarked bills,” Chopra said.

Library adopts Spy Chips
A civil liberties watchdog group is expressing concern over the San Francisco Public Library’s plans to track books by inserting computer chips into each tome. Library officials approved a plan Thursday to install tiny radio frequency identification chips, known as RFIDs, into the roughly 2 million books, CDs and audiovisual materials patrons can borrow. The system still needs funding and wouldn’t be ready until at least 2005.

Your car tires have RFID’s chips in them ALREADY!!!
It’s a US federal sponsored initiative to track vehicles near certain highways feeding certain urban areas.  Basically the FBI enters a rfid number into the database and then history of travel for the car pops up.  The feds can also pre-enter rfids they want to watch after getting a reading off your parked car or from the Canadian-us customs border (where they already actively log the car rfids in the tires and associate them with plates)
Your tires have a passive coil with 64 to 128 bit serial number emitter in them!

Federal Drug Administration Approves Use of the Microchip for Medical Patients

Medical milestone or privacy invasion? A tiny computer chip approved Wednesday for implantation in a patient’s arm can speed vital information about a patient’s medical history to doctors and hospitals. But critics warn that it could open new ways to imperil the confidentiality of medical records.

The Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that Applied Digital Solutions of Delray Beach, Fla., could market the VeriChip, an implantable computer chip about the size of a grain of rice, for medical purposes.

With the pinch of a syringe, the microchip is inserted under the skin in a procedure that takes less than 20 minutes and leaves no stitches. Silently and invisibly, the dormant chip stores a code that releases patient-specific information when a scanner passes over it.

Think UPC code. The identifier, emblazoned on a food item, brings up its name and price on the cashier’s screen. At the doctor’s office the codes stamped onto chips, once scanned, would reveal such information as a patient’s allergies and prior treatments, speeding care.

The microchips have already been implanted in 1 million pets. But the chip’s possible dual use for tracking people’s movements – as well as speeding delivery of their medical information to emergency rooms – has raised alarm.

Mexico’s Attorney General required 160 people to be Chipped. Thousands more are now planned

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO – Security has reached the subcutaneous level for Mexico’s attorney general and at least 160 people in his office – they have been implanted with microchips that get them access to secure areas of their headquarters.

Mexico’s top federal prosecutors and investigators began receiving chip implants in their arms in November in order to get access to restricted areas inside the attorney general’s headquarters, said Antonio Aceves, general director of Solusat, the company that distributes the microchips in Mexico.

Attorney General Rafael Macedo de la Concha and 160 of his employees were implanted at a cost to taxpayers of $150 for each rice grain-sized chip.  More are scheduled to get “tagged” in coming months, and key members of the Mexican military, the police and the office of President Vicente Fox might follow suit, Aceves said. Fox’s office did not immediately return a call seeking comment.  Aceves said his company eventually hopes to provide Mexican officials with implantable devices that can track their physical location at any given time, but that technology is still under development.

The chips that have been implanted are manufactured by VeriChip Corp., a subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions Inc. (ADSX) of Palm Beach, Fla.  They lie dormant under the skin until read by an electromagnetic scanner, which uses a technology known as radio frequency identification, or RFID, that’s now getting hot in the inventory and supply chain businesses.  Erik Michielsen, director of RFID analysis at ABI Research Inc., said that in theory the chips could be as secure as existing RFID-based access control systems such as the contactless employee badges widely used in corporate and government facilities.

In addition to the chips sold to the Mexican government, more than 1,000 Mexicans have implanted them for medical reasons, Aceves said. Hospital officials can use a scanning device to download a chip’s serial number, which they then use to access a patient’s blood type, name and other information on a computer.  Still, Silverman said that his company has sold 7,000 chips to distributors across the United States and that more than 1,000 of those had likely been inserted into U.S. customers, mostly for security or identification reasons.

Because the Applied Digital chips cannot be easily removed – and are housed in glass capsules designed to break and be unusable if taken out – they could be even more popular someday if they eventually can incorporate locator capabilities. Already, global positioning system chips have become common accouterments on jewelry or clothing in Mexico.  In fact, in March, Mexican authorities broke up a ring of used-car salesmen turned kidnappers who were known as “Los Chips” because they searched their victims to detect whether they were carrying the chips to help them be located.

Bio-chip Implant “VeriPay” Arrives for Cashless,Checkless Society

At a global security conference held on November 21, 2003, in Paris, an American company, Applied Digital Solutions, announced a new syringe-injectable microchip “VeriPay” implant for humans, designed to be used as a fraud-proof payment method for cash and credit-card transactions.  The chip implant is being presented as an advance over credit cards and smart cards, which, absent biometrics and appropriate safeguard technologies, are subject to theft, resulting in identity fraud.

Cashless payment systems are now part of a larger technology development subset: government identification experiments that seek to combine cashless payment applications with national ID information on media (such as a “smart” card), which contain a whole host of government, personal, employment and commercial data and applications on a single, contactless RFID chip.  “We are the only ones out there offering implantable ID technology,” said Silverman, who announced the “VeriPay” service during a speech Friday at ID World 2003 in Paris. “We believe the market will evolve to use our product.”

VeriPay – Your Cash Register on the Move

You can now accept credit card payments from your customers anywhere and anytime. All you need is a standard GSM mobile phone, which becomes an EFTPOS terminal in your pocket. You don’t even need to make a phone call – transaction details are simply sent as an SMS text message and confirmed within a few seconds. Ensure the card is good and money is in your bank before you leave the job. No more end-of-day paperwork, visits to the bank or double handling of transactions.

U.N. meeting hears proposal for global human database, ID numbers, to register everyone

Every person in the world would be fingerprinted and registered under a universal identification scheme to fight illegal immigration and people smuggling outlined at a United Nations meeting today.  The plan was put forward by Pascal Smet, the head of Belgium’s independent asylum review board, at a roundtable meeting with ministers including Australian Immigration Minister Philip Ruddock this afternoon.  But he said the plan could be extended worldwide.
Verichip, a miniaturized, implantable identification device with a variety of medical, security and emergency applications…

VeriChip is an implantable, 12mm by 2.1mm radio frequency device about the size of the point of a typical ballpoint pen. Each VeriChip will contain a unique identification number and other critical data. Utilizing an external scanner, radio frequency energy passes through the skin energizing the dormant VeriChip, which then emits a radio frequency signal transmitting the identification number and other data contained in the VeriChip. The scanner will display the identification number, but the VeriChip data can also be transmitted, via telephone or the Internet, to an FDA compliant, secure data-storage site. It will then be accessible by authorized personnel. Inserting the VeriChip device is a simple procedure performed in an outpatient, office setting. It requires only local anesthesia, a tiny incision and perhaps a small adhesive bandage. Sutures are not necessary.

Ex-New Jersey surgeon offers himself for experiment

NEWARK — The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center have spurred a former surgeon from New Jersey to turn himself into a human guinea pig.  Five days after the Sept. 11 attacks, Richard Seelig spent about five minutes implanting two “Verichips” — each no larger than a small breath mint — below the skin of his right forearm and right hip.

Florida firm first to sell ID microchips to be implanted under skin

“Digital Angel”: technology that cares

The Digital Angel is a computer chip that is smaller than a grain of rice and has a short antenna.  It is placed under the skin of a person and the chip sends a signal to cell phone towers and satellites in the sky and it can tell the body temperature, pulse, heartbeat, insulin levels, etc. and it also tells the location of a person anywhere in the world.  All this information on a person would be available over the internet.  This chip can also be put in furniture or anything of value for tracking in case of theft.  It can also be put in food to record temperature and location as it is shipped across the country.

    The Digital Angel demonstration will be held on Thursday, October 26, at the Unconvention Center (Pier 94) in New York City.  Roughly 200 invitations will be issued to interested members of the national media, potential joint-venture/licensing partners and selected Wall Street analysts.  As previously announced, attendees of the event will witness an historical first: the first-ever operational combination of bio-sensor technology and Web-enabled wireless telecommunications linked to GPS location-tracking systems.

Plans are Underway to Microchip every Newborn in U.S. and Europe

Regarding plans to microchip newborns, Dr. Kilde said the U.S. has been moving in this direction “in secrecy.”

She added that in Sweden, Prime Minister Olof Palme gave permission in 1973 to implant prisoners, and Data Inspection’s ex-Director General Jan Freese revealed that nursing-home patients were implanted in the mid-1980s. The technology is revealed in the 1972:47 Swedish state report, Statens Officiella Utradninger

Are you prepared to live in a world in which every newborn baby is micro-chipped? And finally are you ready to have your every move tracked, recorded and placed in Big Brother’s data bank?  According to the Finnish article, distributed to doctors and medical students, time is running out for changing the direction of military medicine and mind control technology, ensuring the future of human freedom.

“Implanted human beings can be followed anywhere. Their brain functions can be remotely monitored by supercomputers and even altered through the changing of frequencies,” wrote Dr. Kilde.  “Guinea pigs in secret experiments have included prisoners, soldiers, mental patients,handicapped children, deaf and blind people, homosexuals, single women, the elderly, school children, and any group of people considered “marginal” by the elite experimenters. The published experiences of prisoners in Utah State Prison, for example, are shocking to the conscience.

“Today’s microchips operate by means of low-frequency radio waves that target them. With the help of satellites, the implanted person can be tracked anywhere on the globe. Such a technique was among a number tested in the Iraq war, according to Dr. Carl Sanders, who invented the intelligence-manned interface (IMI) biotic, which is injected into people. (Earlier during the Vietnam War, soldiers were injected with the Rambo chip, designed to increase adrenaline flow into the bloodstream.) The 20-billion-bit/second supercomputers at the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) could now “see and hear” what soldiers experience in the battlefield with a remote monitoring system (RMS).

“When a 5-micromillimeter microchip (the diameter of a strand of hair is 50 micromillimeters) is placed into optical nerve of the eye, it draws neuro-impulses from the brain that embody the experiences, smells, sights, and voice of the implanted person. Once transferred and stored in a computer, these neuro-impulses can be projected back to the person’s brain via the microchip to be re-experienced. Using a RMS, a land-based computer operator can send electromagnetic messages (encoded as signals) to the nervous system, affecting the target’s performance. With RMS, healthy persons can be induced to see hallucinations and to hear voices in their heads.

“Every thought, reaction, hearing, and visual observation causes a certain neurological potential, spikes, and patterns in the brain and its electromagnetic fields, which can now be decoded into thoughts, pictures, and voices. Electromagnetic stimulation can therefore change a person’s brainwaves and affect muscular activity, causing painful muscular cramps experienced as torture.”

Animal tags for people?

Business Week reported on January 11, 2007:

    Under the federally supported National Animal Identification System (NAIS), digital tags are expected to be affixed to the U.S.’s 40 million farm animals to enable regulators to track and respond quickly to disease, bioterrorism, and other calamities. Opponents have many fears about this plan, among them that it could be the forerunner of a similar system for humans. The theory, circulated in blogs, goes like this: You test it on the animals first, demonstrating the viability of the radio frequency identification devices (RFIDs) to monitor each and every animal’s movements and health history from birth to death, and then move on to people.
    Well, all you conspiracy buffs, let me introduce you to Kevin McGrath and Scott Silverman.  McGrath heads a small, growing company that makes RFID chips for animals…and people.
    Silverman heads a second company that sells the rice-size people chips, which are the only ones with Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval, for implantation in an individual’s right biceps. They carry an identity marker that would be linked to medical records. His goal is to create “the first RFID company for people.”

Human-Chip Company Plans IPO
While the NAIS remains voluntary on a federal level, and there is no formal people identification system as yet, both executives are moving aggressively to position their companies for the day when chips in animals and people are the norm rather than the exception. Mary Zanoni, a lawyer and critic of NAIS who has written extensively about the system, says that “the microchipping of livestock and pet animals is intended to make tagging more acceptable in helping these companies market their devices for people.”
    McGrath’s company, Digital Angel (DOC), does nearly $60 million in annual sales and has sold several million chips for attachment to livestock, mostly in the U.S. and Canada.
    Silverman’s company, VeriChip Corp., is preparing for widespread marketing of its people chips with an initial public offering that it expects to complete within the next 60 days. It has begun building what he refers to as “the infrastructure” by signing up more than 400 hospitals to adopt system scanners and databases and about 1,200 physicians to make chips available to patients likeliest to benefit from them, such as diabetics. 
    While McGrath and Silverman aren’t related, their companies are. Digital Angel and VeriChip have the same majority owner. Applied Digital Solutions (ADSX), the parent of seven smaller companies, owns 55% of Digital Angel and all of VeriChip.
Larger Farms Join the RFID Program
Digital Angel has a big head start in marketing, thanks in part to the Agriculture Dept.-sponsored NAIS program, which, while it is billed as voluntary, is expected by various opponents of NAIS, including Zanoni as well as blogs such as nonais.org, to be imposed on farmers by growing numbers of states. Michigan begins requiring RFID tags for cattle on Mar. 1 in the first such effort (see BusinessWeek.com, 12/19/06, “Farmers Say No to Animal Tags”).
    Farmers running midsize and large operations are signing up for NAIS in growing numbers. The USDA says 343,186 farms have registered, which translates into millions of animals, driven by what McGrath says are significant economic incentives.
    One is inventory control. He points to a pig farm as an example. The farmer can use RFID tags “to monitor the amount fed to the sows, the medications they receive, when they get pregnant, the length of pregnancies, the number born to each sow, and the number of days to weaning.”
    As another example, he cites a farm with about 5,000 pigs that had an outbreak of disease, where some of the pigs got fever and several died.
    By being able to spot health problems earlier via scanning of RFID chips compared to “managing by clipboard,” says McGrath, the cost of the disease in lost animals and treatment was about $75,000, vs. an expected $250,000 without chips.
    McGrath acknowledges that Digital Angel’s chips are more appropriate for factory farms than for smaller farms focused on selling locally. “If you’re a farmer who sells to a neighbor, who cares” about RFID chips? “But if you are a farmer who sells to Japan, the Japanese say they want you to categorically state [the animal] is this age and has not had these diseases. If you cannot show this, the Japanese won’t buy it.” For those farmers who can pass the test, $25-per-head premiums await, he says.

People Tags Are More Profitable
McGrath, for now, is content to focus Digital Angel on the factory farm market, having seen sales of the animal chip rise from 200,000 in 2003 to about 3 million last year. “We believe we will continue to grow at that rate,” he says. In addition, Digital Angel continues selling tags to track lost pets and to monitor fish like salmon for environmental purposes.
    Silverman is taking a similar tack with VeriChip by expanding existing markets—the two primary ones are tags for the bracelets and anklets worn by newborn babies and their parents to prevent kidnappings, and those for elderly nursing home patients with Alzheimer’s disease to recover “wanderers.” Its 2005 revenues were $24 million.
    But the big attraction for both companies, and the reason for the upcoming VeriChip public offering, is the lure of implanting the chips into people. McGrath points out that while the RFID chips attached to animals sell for about $1.50 each, and will likely decline to under $1 within a few years because of competitive pressures, the chips for people sell for $25, based on special design to allow implanting. “To the extent they [VeriChip] would need 1 million [chips], it would be huge for us,” McGrath says.
    For now, VeriChip has only “a couple hundred patients” who have had the RFID chips surgically implanted in their arms. The company is focusing its attention on building databases of patient medical information to attract hospitals to adopt the company’s chips. The chips are being targeted at an estimated 45 million “high-risk patients”—diabetics and heart patients, for example, who could be brought into hospitals unconscious or semiconscious and thus not be able to identify themselves.

Business May Compel Chip Wearing
Of course, no discussion of these cousin companies would be complete without addressing the privacy concerns many people have about being tagged. Both McGrath and Silverman say their companies protect privacy by limiting data stored on the chips for both farm animals and people to identification numbers only, which are extracted via special scanners and then matched to records in databases.
    McGrath also says he appreciates the concerns many small farmers have about the potential infringement on their privacy that NAIS represents. “You’re dealing with people who are intensely independent,” he says. “They don’t like people looking over their shoulders.”
    Silverman says: “We are leaders in the RFID industry in facing privacy issues head on.” The chip for people “should always be a voluntary product, with opt-in and opt-out capability.”    
    As comforting as such statements appear, it’s important to remember that adoption of the RFID chips doesn’t necessarily need to be legislated to become nearly universal. If enough hospitals and insurance companies begin requiring them, or treating patients wearing them more expeditiously than nonusers, or providing discounts for usage of the chips, they well could become the norm. Then, not wearing a chip might be akin to not having a bank ATM card or, increasingly in Eastern states with toll roads and turnpikes, not having a transponder to pay tolls in your car (see BusinessWeek.com, 10/9/06, “Radio-Shipment Tracking: A Revolution Delayed”).

Animal Farms Put Us on Notice
It’s also important to keep in mind that the real prize for VeriChip is in assembling the databases of patient health information. The more patients in the database, the more leverage it has in the health-care marketplace. In that sense, it’s in competition with retailers like Walgreens (WAG) that are collecting data via their walk-in clinics (see BusinessWeek.com, 7/17/06, “Drugstore Clinics Are Bursting with Health”).
   The most important opinion may be rendered by the financial marketplace, and so far, investors haven’t fallen over themselves for either company. Digital Angel’s stock over the past two years has declined from about $7.50 a share to the current $2.60. VeriChip’s IPO has been put off several times by “market conditions,” says Silverman, since it first filed in December of last year. Since then, it has filed five amended offering statements, the most recent on Jan. 9.
    It may be a while before we all begin wearing medical information chips in our arms, but the farm animals are telling us it’s closer than we may have imagined.

Why Advocates And Lawmakers Are Concerned About Involuntary Microchipping

If you do not believe the threat of involuntary microchipping is real, please take a moment to read over the following disquieting developments. Taken together, they reveal a focused effort to promote human microchipping. The time to nip this trend in the bud is now.

• In 2005, VeriChip tried to chip the residents of Orange Grove Center, a facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, that cares for the developmentally disabled. VeriChip offered to inject the devices for free to promote its product, but was ultimately rebuffed when the public questioned whether it was ethical to chip people who could not give informed consent. [1]

• Also in 2005, Tommy Thompson, former Secretary of Health and Human Services and 2008 presidential candidate, joined the board of directors for the VeriChip Corporation. He has used his Bush administration connections to promote the device, and has appeared on national television suggesting that every American should receive a VeriChip implant to link to their electronic medical records. Thompson also suggested using the VeriChip to replace dog tags in our armed forces. [2]

• The VeriChip Corporation claims to have been in talks with the Pentagon about implanting RFID tags into military personnel. [4]

• VeriChip CEO Scott Silverman publicly suggested that the U.S. government adopt the VeriChip implant to tag and track legal immigrants and guest workers. [Note: It is unclear to us how chipping documented immigrants will solve the problem of illegal immigration.] [5]

• The Congressional Record shows that Colombian President Álvaro Uribe told Senator Arlen Specter that he would consider chipping guest workers before allowing them to leave Colombia for the United States. [6]

• During the September 2005 Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Justice John Roberts, Senator Joseph Biden commented, “Can a microscopic tag be implanted in a person’s body to track his every movement? There’s actual discussion about that. You will rule on that — mark my words — before your tenure is over.” [7]

• In 2004, employees of the Mexican Attorney General’s office were asked to receive a chip implant to access a secure document room. Eighteen were actually chipped, and those who refused were reportedly reassigned. [8]

• In 2006, two employees of CityWatcher, a Cincinnati, Ohio, video surveillance company were implanted with VeriChips to access a secure room. While the company reportedly did not require the workers to get chipped, the incident worried employees around the country. Could employers make taking a chip a condition for employment? [9]

• New Jersey’s oldest and largest insurer, Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield, is currently working with the Hackensack Regional Medical Center and VeriChip to develop a business case for the chipping of people. Privacy and civil liberties advocates caution that insurers could one day require customers to get chipped, or they could offer significant premium penalties for those who refuse. [10]

• IBM holds a major stake in the VeriChip Corporation. IBM has sworn public documents on file at the United States Patent and Trademark office detailing how marketers and government agents can track humans with RFID technology. [12] [13]

• IBM and VeriChip have set up a test laboratory in Austin, Texas, to explore the case for human chipping. [14]

• Since the VeriChip Corporation recently took its stock public, it’s under increasing pressure from its shareholders to generate revenues. VeriChip has announced plans to devote $8 to $10 million of its IPO proceeds to promote the chipping of people. [15] At a recent Florida Marlins baseball game, VeriChip purchased a prominent billboard reading “Microchip Implants Save Live.” Hundreds of thousands of people were exposed to this message and likely believed it, despite the fact that no one’s life has been saved by an implanted microchip. No mention was made of the serious potential health downsides of the implant. [16]

• Other companies that offer implant technology to identify and track lab rats, cattle, and pets could follow the pattern of the VeriChip Corporation and begin promoting human identification and tracking. One such company, Somark, has developed “chipless” RFID that can be injected into skin like a tattoo to track animals from a distance through radio waves. The company has suggested its product would be ideal for tracking members of the military. [17]

We would like to share with you something more important than current events and technological facts. We would like to reveal to you what is deep in our hearts. It is our prayer that through this unveiling of the heart of Trumpet Ministries, you might see a small glimpse of Jesus Christ, The One reason for our journeys across the land.
 

What we would like to share is our idea of a “State of the Union” message, or more appropriately, the “State of the American Church.” 

We at Trumpet Ministries have delivered the messages in this book to hundreds of churches throughout the United States. We have spoken to people in many different denominations, non-denominations, faiths, assemblies, groups and gatherings. Looking through these man-made barriers we have seen the true church, the called-out believers, the elect of Jesus Christ. But, we did not find the true church quite as we had expected. What we had expected to find when we were sent out to deliver God’s message, we never found. We have come to no single geographic spot, no single city, no single neighborhood, not even some special building, where all present will be found with names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. What did we find?

We found many places where those who answered to the name “Christian” lived lives so intermixed with the world, that we have to wonder how even God will be capable of sorting them out. Yet, they were oh so certain they were saved. We pray that notwithstanding their pollution with the world, somehow, some way, God will find sheep beneath dirtied wool. Somehow, we know better. Yet we hope . . . and we pray.

We found many places where those within the building thought sure they were the only true believers, that only they stood for the truth. We praise their desire to stand for what they believe and to hold it dear (a praise that should be the norm of true Christianity.) But so often, they had only what they held so dear their mutual esteem of one another, but they didn’t have Jesus. But there too, we would also find, a precious few, in love with Jesus, the Saviour of our souls. We saw all too many places where they believed that their doctrine, attire, heritage, ritual or something else made them the true church or the closest to the “New Testament Church” or otherwise made them better than the rest. Again, we praise their desire to interpret and apply some of the more difficult teachings in God’s Word. Yet, these teachings do not make a relationship with Jesus Christ. And all too often, we observed that the following of these teachings somehow got in the way of the following of Jesus Christ.

But not always . . . there we would find that precious few, in love with Jesus, the Saviour of our souls. Yes, we want to share with excitement what we did find. We found a piece of that precious remnant, those who placed their lives in the trust of Jesus, nearly everywhere we went, in nearly all of the places we just described. A remnant of saints living a life of commitment to Jesus Christ. A remnant that rests in Jesus, walks in joy, bears much fruit and looks with excitement to the hope laid up for us in heaven. A remnant that has no desire for things of this world, no time for worldly amusements, and no interest in compromising the truth. This remnant is the church of Jesus Christ. All else is gold- plating laid over a tin faith, which is rusted, decayed, moth eaten. We learned what we should have known the church is not a building or a place. It is not man-made. But the true members of the remnant that walk along the difficult way testify to the truth of scripture. And we want you to know and believe, wherever you are, the word of God is true there is an abundant life that believers can and do live today.

To live the abundant life promised in scripture, we need to focus more on Jesus and less on what makes our gathering places better, different or right. We are not saying to ignore or compromise correct doctrine. We are not saying to tear down the old landmarks set forth in God’s word. But we are saying, spend less time resting in your belief that you have the correct doctrine and more time with Jesus. Let your focus be on Jesus Christ, on running the race with endurance, on perfecting holiness in the fear of God, on being a witness unto Jesus in all aspects of your life. Let your focus and purpose be to know Him. If your life does not line up with the word of God, grasping tighter to a peculiar doctrine won’t change anything.

Growing closer to Jesus will change everything. If somehow Jesus alone is not the answer to all your needs, adequate to fill your life with abundant love, abundant joy and abundant peace, ask yourself this question: have you become so preoccupied with a particular tree that you have set your sights upon the wrong forest? Has your trust in doctrine replaced a trust in Jesus? If Jesus and only Jesus is not enough, something is utterly wrong. Remember Enoch? He was walking with God and then he was no more, because God took him. Like Enoch, we need to spend so much time with God that we are no more. We need to be careful that we don’t spend all of our time studying about Him to the exclusion of actually spending our time with Him. We need to jealously redeem our time so that we have the time to spend with Jesus. And this we will naturally do, if He is our first love. And the result should be plain for the world to see it is no longer I who lives, but Jesus Christ within me who lives (Galatians 2:20). It is sad to see so many throughout this land hanging on so dearly to what they believe, yet living lives that do not testify of Him. When our lives don’t line up with the word of God, something about what we believe is faulty. Or we don’t truthfully believe what we think we believe.

Please don’t accept a Christianity that does not result in your life bearing much fruit (love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance). This fruit is the testimony of our faith. This fruit is the proof of our faith. This fruit is the unfailing characteristic of a child of God: “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:16-20) Yes, we can be sure that we have been with the true church. We have seen the saints and by their fruits we know that they are saints. Maybe we did not find the church where we had at first expected. But, it was our expectation that was in error. The true church of Jesus Christ is alive and well and living as God’s word promises . . . living testimonies of the truth of God’s word.

Respectability versus Holiness: I clutched it to my bosom and vowed we’d never part, Though the Spirit dwelled within me, I had self will in my heart. I wooed vices that I treasured, attitudes that I held fast. Though I claimed God was my master, I stilled lived as in the past. Oh, I knew the Christian “language”, I could fake it with the best, I would don my spiritual vestige till I looked like all the rest. I knew scripture upon scripture, I could quote it by the score, But with all my spiritual know-how, I was living as before. Sure, I fooled a lot of people, even fooled myself sometimes, I could hide behind my talent, writing prose and making rhymes. But when cards were on the table, when it came to push-or-shove, Was my heart so full of scripture that it had no room for LOVE? If my faith were just examined, would I find it true to God? Did I look to Him for self-worth or was my faith a facade? Was I more concerned with how I “looked” to others here below, More concerned with reputation, earthly things and worldly show? O, dear Lord, look deep inside me; bare the things I try to hide; Rip out all my pious nonsense, my self-righteousness and pride. Take my stubborn willful attitudes, old vices that I nurse, blot out hates and hurts and hang-ups, and the complaints I rehearse. Take this mask made of hypocrisy and make me look within, Take my past filled with self-pleasure, Lord, and make me see its sin. Like it says with the scripture, Father, make my spirit new, So that I’ll forget about myself and dwell on pleasing YOU. (Author Unknown)

ARE YOUR EYES DRY?

I read in a book that “Christianity has not been tried and found wanting, it has been tried and found hard so then it was abandoned.” We hear a lot of talk about revival today. I have often wondered, can we have a revival, if we never had a vival? Some churches actually put up signs that say revival, and an evangelist comes, and there is a series of meetings, and some people get saved, some rededicate their lives, and all this is good. And we praise God for it. But that is not revival. Revival, as was the type seen in the Welch revival, is when the conviction of sin is so strong that local bars close, x-rated video parlors dare not open, alcoholics are led by the spirit of God to repent, and homosexuals and drug addicts know that they can be set free in Jesus Christ.

This kind of revival is not born out of “twist and shout” Chubby Checker type performances or personal instruction on how to roll in laughter. This kind of revival is born out of the coming down of the glory cloud of God. This kind of revival is expensive. It does not depend on lighting systems, screaming guitars, electronic drums, synthesizers, keyboards, special effects and speaker systems that cause your ears to bleed in the third row. No, the cost of this kind of revival that proceeds out of the very heart of God is counted by the tears of saints who are sick and tired of playing church and observing rampant sin and who have a burden, not for programs, but for souls. We need to shed tears and weep for our families, our church and our nation. Get a vision of them standing in flames and you will shed tears and mourn. Get a vision of them in heaven and you will shed tears of joy. It seems to me that the missing ingredient is tears from a caring heart. “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven . . . a time to weep, and a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance” (Ecclesiastes 3:1,4).

We cannot have a time of laughing and dancing without a time of weeping and mourning. When we realize that Jesus Christ is the substitute for you and me on the cross, it should cause your eyes to well up with tears and those tears to run down your cheeks like rain. We should be in a time of weeping and mourning for a world that is lost in sin and a people whose lives are ruined, and yet who cannot be reached. Benjamin Beddome wrote: Did Christ o’er sinners weep, And shall our cheeks be dry? Let floods of penitential grief burst forth from every eye. The Son of God in tears. The wondering angels see; Be thou astonished. O my soul: He shed those tears for thee. He wept that we might weep; Each sin demands a tear: In Heaven alone no sin is found, And there’s no weeping there. But this earth is not Heaven: it is a vale of tears. What, then, is the reason we no longer weep? What has become of our tears?

A CALL TO WEEPING

The Son of God exhorted men to weep. He said, “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted” (Matthew 5:4). Many in our day have the mistaken notion that the Christian life is “a rose-bordered pathway covered with ease,” or that Christians should carry a “smile at all times.” But this cannot be reconciled with Scripture: Ezra prayed, and confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God (Ezra 10:1). Surely, he must have had reason to do so. Job declared, “Mine eye poureth out tears unto God” (Job 16:20). David prayed, “I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears” (Psalms 6:6). The Psalmist wrote, “My tears have been my meat day and night” and declared, “I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping” (Psalms 42:3; 102:9). Jeremiah was known as “the weeping prophet.” He wrote that the Lord called for “mourning women,” women that were “cunning” in their ability to mourn, that they might wail for the people, that “our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters” (Jeremiah 9:18). The prophet himself mourns, “Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people” (9:1). Again, he wrote, “Mine eyes do fill with tears” (Lamentations 2:11). Isaiah describes the Son of God as “a man of sorrows” who was “acquainted with grief” (Isaiah. 53:3b). No doubt it was for this reason He was “despised and rejected of men” then, and doubtless for this reason men despise Him in our day. Nevertheless, in the days of His flesh, He offered up “prayers, and supplications with strong crying and tears” (Hebrews 5:7a).

The apostle Paul declares that from the first day he came into the coasts of Asia, he served the Lord “with many tears” and testifies that by the space of three years he “ceased not to warn everyone night and day with tears” (Acts 20:19,31). And he wrote to the Corinthians, “For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears” (2 Corinthians 2:4a). Brethren, where is the “anguish of heart”? Have the people of God nothing for which they ought to weep? The saints of God in our day can become angry over sinful deeds committed by wicked men, and they can become politically active, organizing into groups of concerned citizens, writing their congressmen, sending God’s money to defeat unholy legislation, and publicly demonstrating against moral wickedness; but who is moved to weep, to wail, and to howl?

THE DEMAND FOR GODLY SORROW

David, who is described in the New Testament as a man after God’s own heart, tells us the Lord does not desire offerings, but that the “sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise” (Psalms 51:17). Yet contrition, or godly sorrow, has no place in modern-day evangelism or worship. Jesus warned, “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:5). Repentance is not merely a change in our manners: it entails godly sorrow. Contrition is an essential element of repentance, and where there is no godly sorrow for sin, there is no repentance. We need to first weep for our own sin. The apostle Paul wrote, “Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death” (2 Corinthians 7:9, 10). Where there is no godly sorrow, there is no repentance.

What has become of our tears? Why is it that the goodness of God evidenced by his providential care, and by his gracious mercy in the forgiveness of our sins why is it that such things do not fill our hearts until our eyes overflow? Should we not weep for ourselves, for our families, for our churches, for our schools and for our nation? Laws cannot change the hearts of men, but the Lord can. Oh, that the fathers in our land had hearts of flesh! Oh, that the hearts of fathers were turned to their children! When king Ahasuerus had letters sent into all Persian provinces “to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both old and young, little children and women, in one day” (Esther 3:13), “in every province whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, there was great mourning among the Jews, and fasting, and weeping, and wailing; and many lay in sackcloth and ashes” (4:3). It may not be until a similar proclamation is made to destroy all Christians that present-day believers will turn to the Lord with weeping and lamentation. Consider that plague of our own heart! It is easier for us to open our purse than it is to bend our knees. It is easier to bow the head than it is to bow the heart.

The prophet implored, “Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare the people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God” (Joel 2:17)? James counsels, “Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness” (James 4:9). “Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh;” but “Woe unto you that laugh now? For ye shall mourn and weep” (Luke 6:21b, 25b). What has happened to this generation is that our eyes have become dry. We have lost our tears and we don’t know how or where to find them. You can ask the world and they will tell you we need another program. You can ask government and they will tell you we need more taxes. But, if you ask Jesus, He will tell you that you need a heart transplant. You need a heart like that of Jesus, broken because of the sinful state of the world. The only answer is to stand on the rock Christ Jesus, put His burden in your heart and then you will know His tears.

GOD’S VISION OR MAN’S ILLUSION

Previously we discussed “ARE YOUR EYE’S DRY”. The question was “do you weep between the porch and the alter?” Now we want to share with you God’s vision. His vision is revealed in His word and when God’s vision becomes our vision then, as Jesus wept, we too will weep for lost souls. We don’t see much weeping for the lost in the churches today because we don’t have God’s vision for the lost. The problem seems to be that we are unable to discern between God’s vision and man’s illusion.

Christian Illusion: Christians use the term “vision” to speak of something we have seen or expect to see. Or, if we don’t have our own vision, we borrow one from somebody else so that we can tell- a-vision. Many times in our excitement we tell-a-vision that we have seen on television. This reminded me of being on the set of P.T.L. and looking at the little cardboard buildings with blinking lights that made up the background for the set and gave the illusion that we were high in a building overlooking the city. While this didn’t bother me a lot, at the time, I wondered should it be called “television” or “tel-illusion”. Then there was the P.T.L. green room where the makeup was applied. They applied one substance to keep you from sweating and another to take the glare off and spray for your hair. Then they said “act natural”. This creates the illusion that you are comfortable so that they can then give the world their vision. And the tel-illusion suddenly becomes somebody else’s vision.

Confused Vision: A “vision”, generally, can be defined as a mental image or concept which has been perceived by supernatural means such as an apparition or prophetic revelation. Yes, we know that many claim to have received a vision from god. But if it is God’s vision then why is there so much confusion, strife and division in the church? Why are God’s people running to and fro, increasing knowledge but acting without wisdom? Why do we settle for unity brought by man instead of the Holy Spirit? And, why are so many of God’s people disillusioned, downcast, destitute, dull, dry, and dead? . . . Why do so many seem helpless, hapless, hopeless, lifeless and listless? Why are so many in great danger of perishing? God says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18).

The Bible, which contains God’s vision, should be the authority for Christians. It supersedes Psychology Today, Reader’s Digest, Webster’s Dictionary, Encyclopedia Britannica and even the phone book. While none of these are ever questioned as an authority, the Bible is always questioned. Of late, the Bible is regularly rewritten by many authors who suffer from divine indigestion (they couldn’t stomach the truth). You would be appalled if you found your mechanic working on your costly car using, as a manual, a comic book interlaced with pages out of a trash can, with some pages having notes written by as many as ten authors (rather than the pure word written by One Author, the Holy Spirit). It is, however, not uncommon to find people quoting, with great authority, half of a scripture verse. (But then Satan used half-verses in trying to tempt Jesus.) Or they try to complete the verse by mixing with it one of these or other widely acclaimed authorities.

God’s Vision: The Bible tells us in 1 Sam. 2-3 that there was no open vision (3:1) and God’s house had become polluted. Eli the priest had not restrained his sons (3:13) and had allowed the temple to be used by prostitutes which his sons had brought in (2:22). God removed the vision from Eli. However, Samuel received God’s vision as God spoke to him of what was about to happen to Eli’s household (3:11-14). Samuel was faithful to deliver God’s message and to continue to do so all of his days. Can we claim the same? God’s word plainly shows that unrepented sin in the camp prevents God’s vision from being revealed to the people because the prophets no longer hear from the LORD. When this happens, self proclaimed prophets fill the void with false visions (Lam. 2:14;2:9-17). They speak of worthless visions or illusions of their own heart (Jer. 23:16-17) which are lies because God did not send them (Jer. 23:21; 27:15-16). The self-proclaimed prophets and shepherds no longer seek the LORD (Jer. 10:21). So the prophets prophesy falsely out of their own illusions and the pastors rule by man’s power not under God’s authority (Jer. 5:31). But the people have itching ears (2 Tim. 4:3- 4) and love to run after the illusions (Jer. 5:31), instead of seeking the true vision from the mouth of God through His true prophets. The true vision from true prophets always speaks of repentance, obedience and holiness, not smooth words of peace and prosperity (Jer.28:7-9) and directs our steps back to God’s pathway for us (Jer.6:16).

Revival Requires God’s Vision: We talk about vision and the vision of great revival. But it seems we may not be consulting God to see if our vision lines up with His vision. Revivals are planned for, not prayed for. Calculations are made to be sure it will be paid for, but once again not prayed for. The praying must take place first and then the date set by God and the place set by God and then AND ONLY THEN will we see revival..

The Church desperately needs revival. If we expect to reach a lost and dying world, we need to first reach a lost and dying church that continues to compare itself to the world as the world continues to become more and more wicked. The church may say that we are not so bad compared to the world. Eli might have made the same comparison with his childrens’ sins. But my friend, it is not the world that you will be judged by. It is by the word and the righteous judge JESUS CHRIST. When we compare ourselves with the world, rather than the Truth, our vision has become blinded and we have set our eyes upon wrong rather than righteousness. We have for years preached a watered down gospel and a milk-toast Saviour that requires no change in our lifestyle. We have taught that you do not have to deny yourself to have salvation. We have offered the Crown, but failed to mention that the price is the cross. We have diluted the gospel message to the point that the unsaved can slip into most social clubs (churches) without being noticed and slip out the same way and nobody really cares.

We have dishonored God with Instant Salvation: Just blink your eyes or squeeze the hand of the person next to you to let them know you are saved (we don’t want to embarrass anybody). Eli did not take steps acceptable to God for dealing with sin. Will we do any better than Eli? Will we continue to follow the illusion that we create when we measure ourselves by the world’s standards? Will we turn from sin or continue to overlook it hanging on to a hollow gospel which displays a cross on the outside, but does not require the believer to die on the inside? This is an empty gospel filled with man’s illusion, not God’s vision. Folks we are sowing faulty seeds and now are experiencing crop failure. And to make up for this failure, we manufacture plastic fruit and create experiences to give the illusion of the real thing. We may wonder why Eli failed to restrain His children. Yet, we do not restrain our own lives which are “to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:11). Can we claim to be alive in Christ Jesus when we spend hours watching television, but minutes seeking His direction in prayer? When we are hungry for the sports page, but have no taste for the word? When we spend more money on pet food than on missions or the spread of the gospel? When we welcome God’s blessings, but are weary of His burdens? If you spend more time watching Nintendo’s little Mario run across the screen than you do in prayer, you have no right to call Jesus LORD. If your joy and delight is in perverted soap operas, you are serving another god. You may see an illusion, but you have rejected God’s vision.

We cannot have that vision of heaven and that city four square if we are looking to the world. We need to be so heavenly minded that we are not of this earth. Our citizenship is in heaven. We need to do some soul searching and see what kind of born again experience we have had. If we have had to sacrifice nothing, give up nothing and separate from nothing, and if we have no hatred of sin, can we still believe that we are born again? (Luke 14:33, 2 Cor 6:17, James 4:4.) We sing that “we’re the people of God”, but then are entertained by the devil’s disciples, HBO (Hell’s Best Offer), CINEMAX (sin to the max), and MTV (Music To Vex the righteous soul as Lot was vexed). And, no better than Eli, we allow our children to do the same. Folks look at the fruits of these things.

BAD FRUITS ARE AN INDICATION OF BAD ROOTS: (Matthew 7:16-20.) Seek God’s Vision If the church is to be healed of its backslidden ways before more perish, each of us must seek God’s vision for ourselves and then walk in it. God’s basic vision for man has never changed. It is to obey His voice (Deut. 4:12-13). Jesus said if you love Him you will keep His commandments and that His sheep hear and obey His voice (John 10:4-5, 14, 16, 26-27 and 14:15, 21 and 23-24). Let us judge ourselves, not by the world’s standards, but by His word and His righteousness. Only then will we find God’s true vision and salvation for our souls. If we obey, seeking God with our whole heart, then we will see the vision of the lost that Jesus sees. And we will weep as He weeps.

WHO PULLED THE PLUG?

There is a power that we have been promised “But ye shall receive POWER, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you . . .” (Acts 1:8). These were the words of JESUS. The power was given. However, it is not evident in the visible church. So who or what pulled the plug? We have Christians talking, walking, looking, praying, wearing and even claiming defeated lives. I run into many Christians who act like they are 100 feet from the power source with only a 50 foot extension cord. I have news for you folks. God has a direct connection with each of His children. Either He is in you or He does not exist for you. This direct connection is a fundamental condition of every born again believer. If you are trying to seek a connection to the power of God through some emotional experience or group blessing, you, my friend, have made a faulty connection. And with a faulty connection you may see a lot of sparks and smoke, and even some heat, but no power.

No power? We have GOD the Father, GOD the Son and GOD the Holy Ghost inside of us. Why o why then are so many Christians seemingly unplugged? I believe it can be summed up in one word . . . “FAITH”. Faith is a small word. And like “SIN”, it has that all important “I” in the middle. “FAITH” is an action word. It is “I” that must have a faith that produces action. I must have my own faith. I cannot give you my faith and you cannot give me your faith. I can demonstrate my faith and it could encourage you. Or, I may demonstrate my lack of faith and it could discourage you. However, the fact remains, “FAITH” is the answer.

Hebrews chapter 11 testifies of faith in action. James chapter 2 testifies that without action, it is not faith. If we do not live by faith, acting upon faith, then we are not connected. If we are not connected through faith to the power source, no extension cord will be long enough to make a connection. You might then say that we are guilty of pulling the plug on His power. Faith in Jesus If faith is the answer, then why do so many people who claim to have faith look to the world, the world that they are supposed to be separated from, to find the answer to even the smallest problem? When they need money, they take out a loan at 17% interest (and then balk at 10% tithes). When they have a headache, their first thought is Excedrin Aspirin Tylenol. When they need healing, they call a secular doctor and then pray that God will guide his hand as he practices on them. What happened to prayer and prayer first? Remember Asa (2 Chronicles 16:12)? They get tired and need relaxation, so they go on vacation to a worldly theme park or resort. What happened to entering into His rest (Matthew 11:28-29; Hebrews 4:9-11)? When we live by faith, Jesus is our rest, the only rest. They depend on everything that the world has to offer and still end up with about as much joy as a mashed cat on the freeway? Joy is a promised blessing to those who live by faith.

The joy of faith (Phil 2:23) is a fruit of the Holy Spirit, a natural result of a connection to the power. The joy of the finished work on the cross is by faith in God. And, “Your joy, no man taketh from you” (John 16:22b). Faith in Jesus results in joy. If you have no joy, you do not have faith in Jesus. Misdirected Faith I have found many Christians who boast of their faith and even claim to have a great faith. But I must wonder what it is that they have faith in? Is it a misdirected faith? Do they have faith in people or things or do they simply have faith in their faith? True faith in Jesus Christ is a faith that leads to a trust in God for everything. It is a misdirected faith that turns first to anything and everything but God. God is not interested in how much faith you have in your savings account, your IRA account, your pension fund, your lawyer, your doctor, your government, or any other people or things of the world. He does not even care about how much faith you have in your pastor, reverend, priest, counselor, co-dependent, prayer group or psychiatrist. God is asking you a question “do you trust and have such faith in me that you walk not by sight but by your faith?” Walking by sight demonstrates a lack of faith. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). Yet, if we don t trust Him for our today and the things we can see, how is it that we have fooled ourselves into thinking that we trust Him for our tomorrow and the things we cannot see?

You see folks, a real and active faith in the unseen is God s requirement for the normal Christian walk. A real faith, in Jesus, which moves you to action, is the minimum of a saving faith. It has been said that faith isn t faith until it s all you are hanging on to. Faith in God is a faith in the unseen. It is a faith that does not have to be seen or felt. It is also a faith that we are not ashamed of even when it looks to the world like foolish blind faith. It is a faith that glorifies God, not ourselves, our self esteem or our position in the body of Christ. Active Faith Brings Obedience Acting upon faith includes rejecting sin and selecting obedience. The Christian who selects sin or rejects obedience has chosen not to live by faith. These choices are an abomination to God. Whatever He asks you to do, will you do it and trust Him for your life? Remember, we claim to trust Him for our soul and our eternity.

We show our trust by our obedience. We need to carefully examine ourselves in the light of God s word to see if we, ourselves, live by faith. We have a lot to say about the sin of others. But what do we have to say about our own sin? Jesus in Matthew Chapters 5 through 7 (Sermon on the Mount) calls us to examine our hearts by exposing our hidden murders, adulteries and other sins. Jesus reveals to us that anger towards a brother is murder and thoughts of lust after a women are adultery. Jesus brought out the unvarnished truth of God s message to His people and anything which misses the mark of truth is sin. Oh, we are so quick to point out sin in others. We can even recite two or three of the Ten Commandments and apply them to others. But when we look at ourselves, we merely classify the words of Jesus as Old Testament law nailed to the cross. We are so quick to lump His explanation of murder and adultery as part of the Ten Suggestions. After all didn’t Jesus fulfill all that stuff about THOU SHALT? Our selective obedience exposes a lack of faith or a misdirected faith. “And Samuel said, ‘Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better then sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams ” (1 Samuel 15:22). In the verses that follow we find that King Saul was fearful of the people and because of fear of man, rather than faith in God, chose to obey the people and disobey God. The price to this disobedience was that Saul lost the kingdom. What Saul saw was men. He acted on the seen. But God calls us to put our trust in Him and act upon the unseen.

Choose to Live by Faith: Faith is a choice. Folks, heavenly benefits are not possible when your obedience is based on worldly standards, when you choose to act upon men s desires, rather than faith in God. If you are obedient to Him, He will not allow you to exalt yourself and it may seem, for a time, that God has exalted others at your expense. But don t be concerned with a worldly standard. God is molding and shaping you for a greater task. God is not interested in a Burger King Christianity (note, you can t have it your way). God is only satisfied when it is His way. God s way is always a way of obedience and a choice to act upon our faith. God will call you to a daily sacrifice of self on the altar. This sacrifice of self is an act of faith. It is a choice to select obedience and to trust in God first, last and in between. Only then will you discover that you do not need an extension cord because you are directly plugged in to His power. Only then can you please God. Only then will you know the joy of faith. We sing “Trust and Obey for There Is No Other Way”. Yet, when we are done singing, we forget to live what we sung. We must walk in trust and obedience throughout the day.

Don t Be Deceived: In Ezekiel chapters 10 and 11 we see the glory of God departing from the temple and from Israel and ascending up from the Mount of Olives. What a shock it must have been for the priest to enter into the Holy of Holies and find that somebody turned the lights out. The Glory of God had departed and there was only darkness. What would we do? Would we light some candles or put in a stained glass skylight so no one would know? For a time the deception may work. But only for a time. Do the scriptures say “in vain they do worship Me” (Matthew 15:9)? Do not be deceived. “But without faith it is impossible to please him:” (Hebrews 11:6). Faith is the Way I want to ask you, has selective obedience caused the glory to depart from your Christian life? Have you grabbed hold of some emotional experience or tied on plastic fruit and put on a mask of self righteousness to cover up a dark Holy of Holies in your temple? Well have I got good news for you. God is waiting for you to surrender to Him through Jesus Christ His Son. He wants you to have a relationship with Him that far surpasses just having knowledge of Him. This relationship does not allow anything, and in the Greek that is “anything,” to come between you and Him. Restore this relationship. Go and confess that your lack of faith pulled the plug. Ask that it be reconnected. Please, let the Holy Spirit lead and guide you in the greatest decision of your life.

OBEDIENCE TO GOD. LIVE BY FAITH. Fifteen Fools 1. Those who do not believe in God (Psalms 14:1) 2. Those whose tongues wag at both ends (Prov. 18:7,8) 3. Those who tell all they know, and more (Prov. 29:11) 4. Those who boast their superior wisdom (Prov. 26:12, Rom. 1:22) 5. Those whose trust is in themselves instead of God (Prov. 28:26) 6. Those who think they can take just one drink (Prov. 20:1) 7. Those who think they can “get away” with crookedness (Jer. 17:11) 8. Those who chase after women (Prov. 7:6-9, 22, 23) 9. Those who meddle in the affairs of others (Prov. 20:3) 10. Those who spend all they get (Prov. 21:20) 11. Those who think money is all they need (Proverbs 1:32; Luke 12:19-21) 12. Those who laugh at the sinful doing of others (Prov. 14:9) 13. Those who invent lies about their neighbors (Prov. 10 :18) 14. Those who cannot control their mouth (Ecc. 7:9, Prov. 18:6, 12:16) 15. Those who make you tired in their presence (Prov. 29:9) Why not be a fool for Christ’s sake (I Corinthians 4:10)?

The 23RD CHANNEL

The T.V. is my shepherd, I shall not want. It maketh me to lie down on the sofa. It leadeth me away from the scriptures. It destroys my soul. It leads me into the paths of sex and violence for the sponsor’s sake. Yea, though I walk in the shadow of my Christian responsibility, There will be no interruption, for the T.V. is with me. Its cable and its remote control, they comfort me. It prepares a commercial before me in the presence of my worldliness. It anoints my head with humanism and consumerism. My covering runneth over. Surely ignorance and laziness shall follow me all the days of my life. I shall dwell in the house of watching T.V. forever. (Author Unknown)

HOLINESS Part 1: THE THREAD

As we travel across America we have the opportunity to meet many people. We meet people from all walks of life, from all economic classes, and nearly every race, creed and color. Yet, we are grieved by what we see and don’t see. We don’t see many holy men and women of God. We see so few who live as holiness unto the Lord. When we travel this land we see many who claim Jesus as Savior. But we find few that know Him as their Lord. Many will wear a cross, but few will pick up their cross and follow Jesus. Few will permit God to make them holy vessels. Most prefer to settle for some form of religion or religious behavior. Many have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof. In other words, they deny God the right to be God in them. The Christianity we see is sadly inconsistent with the Biblical record. Yes, there is a pattern that we see in the Bible woven in the pages from Genesis to Revelation. We see a thread which binds together holy men of old Noah, Abram, Joseph and then Moses, Joshua and young King David. So, too, we see this thread in the lives of John, Peter, Paul and Timothy. By this thread, God has woven the lives of men into the very fabric of history as it is recorded in the Bible.

This thread binds these men to their God. This thread can be recognized in these men by the holiness manifested in each of their lives and by their changed lives. The essence of the Biblical record is changed lives. The new testament testifies of the power of Jesus to change lives. Peter was changed. Paul was changed. James was changed. Jude was changed. Once they were religious men. But now they are holy men. Are we holy men? Now, we must understand that holiness is not the thread that God has used to weave the lives of these men into a cohesive story. And holiness is not the tie that binds them to their God. But holiness is a manifestation of that thread. Holiness is the fruit of their right relationship with a Holy God. Only the Holy Unless God weaves this same thread into our lives too, so that we too bear the fruit of holiness, we will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Without holiness, we may claim faith, but faith, without the works of faith, is dead (James 2:17, 26).

Faith without holiness is a dead faith. We must personally partake of God’s holiness. Unless we walk in His holiness, we cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. Rather, we must be holy, “set apart” unto Him for His use. “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.” (Hebrews 12:14). This holiness is essential. This holiness cannot be achieved apart from God. Rather, it is the result of a right relationship with God through our Lord Jesus Christ our being in Him and He being in us. The Pharisees tried to achieve holiness apart from God. But they could not fool Jesus who said to them: “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.” (Matthew 23:25-26).

The Pharisees did not have this right relationship with God; they only had their man-made works of “holiness.” They had refused a right relationship with God, refusing to permit God to weave them into His tapestry. And now, they were to reject the only one who could restore that relationship. Nevertheless, they continued to proclaim their own holiness, as they attempted to weave their own tapestry. They displayed their man-made acts of holiness and flaunted their own tapestry. But man-made holiness is filthy rags to God. Inwardly they had no right relationship with God and therefore they had no God-made holiness. And without God- made holiness, we will stand condemned. The Pharisees of Today Are the churches of America today better than the Pharisees of yesterday? Are we better than they? Do we have a right relationship with God, evidenced by holy conduct? Or, have we gone the way of the Pharisees, rebelling against God, breaking that thread? Have we unsuccessfully tried to tie it all back together with religiosity (our own religious works), by using our wealth as a form of godliness? Have we somehow believed that religious works (even world-wide) could substitute for holiness and obedience to God? Have we worked in the “church” kingdom, without working in God’s kingdom?

No quantity of works can justify abortion, homosexuality, fornication, adultery (both physical and spiritual) and drunkenness. And no quantity of works can justify the less obvious sins of pride, covetousness, lusts, friendship with the world (James 4:4) and other forms of worldliness (I John 2:15-16). We cannot claim God’s holiness as we follow after other gods, including the god of self. God was not impressed with the Pharisees’ self- styled, holier than thou, attitude. Neither is He impressed with such a form of holiness today. God is impressed with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, a heart like David’s heart, an obedient heart that has voluntarily surrendered to God’s purposes for his life a holy heart. Without a right relationship with God, we cannot live holy lives. Holiness is not just something that we do. If we could do it, we all would. And then why would we need Him? No, holiness is something that we are because of a right relationship with God through the shed blood of JESUS CHRIST. We must “cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean.” We first must have a right relationship on the inside before we can have anything more than a counterfeit holiness on the outside. We must have His Holy Spirit on the inside in order to bear the fruit of holiness on the outside. It is because of a right relationship with God I in Him and Him in me, that His holiness can be within me.

Are You Holy? I don’t know where you are today in your walk with the Lord. But know this: ultimately, your relationship with God, and my relationship with god, will be exposed for what it truly is. Is it not high time to “make your calling and election sure?” (II Peter 1:10). I ask you this sobering question: “Are you holy?” I ask you this question “because it is written, be ye holy; for I am holy.” (I Peter 1:16). I ask you this question because it is a matter of life and death eternal life and eternal death. I ask you this question, not for you to blindly pass over it, or to assume that you are holy contrary to all external evidence. Rather, I ask you this question to cause you to deeply contemplate it. I urge you: examine it; touch it. Look at the evidence. Consider your relationship. Picture yourself standing before the judgment seat of Christ and then answer the question: Are you holy? If we have a right relationship with God, this is how we will know it: by our holy lives. We must look past our Sunday clothes, our regular church attendance, our daily bible reading, our memorized scripture, our tithes and offerings, our committee assignments, our outreach programs, our church-growth programs, our made-for-every-purpose support groups and our missionary support.

These things are not “holiness.” Rather, they are what the devout members of many false religions do. Even the Pharisees did as much. These are common things, not “holy” things. They may be good things, but they do not make us holy and are not an acceptable substitute for the holiness which is borne by a right relationship with God. God did not accept such form of holiness from the Pharisees of His Israel and we should not expect Him to accept it from the gentile churches of today. Are we holy? Yes, it is that thread which only God can weave through our lives that sets apart a Christian from all others. Holiness is the life of one who is led by the Holy Spirit of the living God. No, I don’t know where you are today. But I do pray that you are walking by faith, living in holiness, woven into God’s tapestry, rather than some “church” tapestry. I pray that your life bears the fruit of a right relationship with the living God. “But as he which hath called you is holy, so beye holy in all manner of conversation” (I Peter 1:15). By this shall we know that we believe. My friends, examine whether your life is truly hidden within the HOLY ROCK, JESUS CHRIST you will know it by a life consecrated and set apart for God’s use in accordance with His will all else is sinking sand.

That soothing motion you feel is Satan rocking the cradle.

I was thinking about a song an old friend of mine wrote. The words went something like this. “Oh! The church is fast asleep and Satan rocks the cradle”.  I thought about how the Church and the world at one time walked so far apart on the changing sands of time but now as I read the obituaries of many bankrupt churches and ministries I wonder when did God tell us it was OK to finance His house with a bank or lending institution. The true missionaries are begging for support while the interest on the loans must be paid.

I believe there has been a move going on for some time to infiltrate the church. While we were occupied with every type of program including the latest and greatest manifestation of soul worship and man made deliverance ministries and while reading the latest book about a 40-day spiritual journey and discover your purpose. NOTE (The only hope you have of finding your self is by denying yourself and receiving Jesus Christ and the completely finished work on the cross) Satan began to chip away at the foundation of God’s church. He begins to move the boundary stones set by God in His Word. He wanted a compromised bible so he left some words out and added a few and then cast doubts on the old KJV.

Then Satan began to tear apart the family unit. He did this by getting us so busy making a living in order to give our children something better than what you and I had. We gave them toys and video games and continues TV with X-rated commercials and yet we failed to give them the greatest message that has ever been uttered to mankind.

John 3:16:  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

What God had entrusted to us to pass on. Satan devised a plan to keep us so busy seeking comfort, peace and false prosperity that we had no time to seek God.

While we were doing this, the New Agers (Satan) infiltrated the school system. He then brainwashed, manipulated, intimidated and spiritually seduced first the teachers with secular humanism, and then the children.  It was necessary then to banish God, Bibles and prayer from the classroom.  And then to divided parents and children (parents are old fashioned and out of step and will not understand).

The New Age plan cautions your children not to tell their parents what goes on in school. They are taught that sex should be experimented with, and they gave them condoms so it will be safe. We also will tell them that abortion and alternate lifestyles are OK, and then Satan used the New Agers once again to throw in a little Harry Potter, Pokemon, Star wars and witchcraft to keep our children occupied while they brought in outcome based Education with all it’s tolerance doctrine.

Oh yes, New Age is a religion and they do have a doctrine. However the New Agers have a problem. You see the bible believing born again, blood washed, Spirit filled Christian stands in their way. These Christians have the audacity to believe that Jesus Christ is God and created all things–even us. Now the New Ager knows that this is not true because he is convinced that we evolved from monkeys, and that, of course, eliminates God out of the picture and makes mankind only accountable to himself.

Psalms 53:1: The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

They are unable to prove evolution but they will do all they can to tell you there is no God. This is of course the philosophy of the New World Order and with this he is now convinced that he is in control and he (the New Ager) is in power and will:

 ·        Create depressions; money panics;

·        Economical and ecological (global warming fears),

·        Food and health crisis (flu epidemic “get your shots”)

·        Inflation; bankruptcy (even churches).

·        Disarm America, unite the world (United Nations) (New World Order)

·        Unite the Church (Ecumenical one World Church)

·        Abortions (including partial birth) taxpayer paid

·        Same sex marriages. (It was Adam and Eve ,not Adam and Steve)

·        Employ the genius of euthanasia experts to get rid of the ill, the aged and crippled and useless elderly. (The Supreme Court just upheld the euthanasia law of Oregon and California is next)

Satan does read the bible and he has used scripture to try and tempt Jesus. Please do not underestimate the enemy, but obey God. James 4:7:  Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Satan can convincingly utter the words it is written and thanks to the gullibility, and ignorance, and apathetic indifference and busyness of people he thinks he we will win. So he says in such a soothing way, “Sleep on Church just keep on sleeping.”

Folks, the purpose of this warning is not to cause you to lose hope, but to tell you about the only hope you have. I want to tell you personally I am looking for the upper taker, not the undertaker. I have a promise, and when I go out of here I want to grab a lost man in each arm and as we go up through the clouds I will say, OK, repent or I let go. Folks I want to be ready and I want to be in a church that is ready. If you are not then please, read on.

Satan believes that Christians are doomed. And only the worship of Satan, and the antichrist system, along with trees, owls, and rivers will be tolerated and then his next move will be to require all to receive a mark. Without it you will not be able to buy or sell.

 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.

18  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Revelation 13:

 By the way, Satan is the father of lies and his time is running out.

John 8:44:  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

 Read the last chapter of the Bible. We win and Satan loses.  He is a loser.

 

Satan Rocks the Cradle
Oh the Church is fast asleep and I wonder who’s to blame

When we call ourselves a Christian. Do we take His name in vain?

Or do we try to lead someone to the master’s table?

Or just fold our hands and close our eyes… while Satan rocks the cradle!

As we look at the cutting edge of current technology, we can begin to see how some Biblical prophecies are likely to be fulfilled. Technology will provide many of the tools which Satan and the antichrist will use in their battle against the Church and the spread of Christianity. Satan desires to deceive the elect. Our Lord Jesus cautions us not to be deceived (Matthew 24:4). He instructs us to be wise as serpents (Matthew 10:16) and to be prepared for His return (Mark 13:32-37). Paul writes that we should not be deceived about the time of the coming of our Lord because certain events must first occur (II Thessalonians 2:1-3).

We must not be found sleeping as the antichrist system comes together. The technology that has advanced us in so many areas of comfort and convenience has also moved us so very close to the positive identification that will tie us to the antichrist. The micro-chip implant is real and is being used at this time. But more important than that is how it so perfectly lines up with scripture relating to the “mark” of Revelation 13:16.

Read the full story “Could This Be The Mark Of The Beast?”, for a definition of the “mark” as used in scripture. Also see the article “The Future’s Foolproof ID,” for a description of the micro-chip implant and some of its planned uses. Many technologies other than the micro-chip implant are rapidly developing which are likely to be building blocks of the one world government and the one world system of the antichrist.

Voice Translation: A computer system has been developed which will translate a language, any language, into 163 other languages and dialects, and broadcast those translations by satellite around the world. Read Revelation 13:5, Daniel 7:25.

Surveillance: The technology is in place to enable the close surveillance of every man, woman and child on the face of this earth. The use of these bio-tech devices is consistent with the absolute control required by the antichrist in the book of Revelation.

Surveillance: The technology is in place to enable the close surveillance of every man, woman and child on the face of this earth. The use of these bio-tech devices is consistent with the absolute control required by the antichrist in the book of Revelation.

Satellite Surveillance: We have more satellites and the sophistication of these satellites is increasing rapidly. We now have the ability to look at underground faults and to spy upon the movement of worms under your lawn. With the use of cellular towers and the satellite system, any pet embedded with the now readily available micro-chip implant can be triangulated to within 10 ft. of where it is located. The statement is that they can keep track of 1 billion pets. The question is, “who’s next?” We had 35 of these satellites and in 1993 we added 24 Navstar satellites that are accurate in tracking anywhere on the face of the earth.

Laser Listening Devices: Well proven laser listening devices are checked out like a special tool by our surveillance minded departments: CIA, FBI and even the IRS. These units, by using a window as a diaphragm, can listen to every conversation as much as 20 miles away. Auto Surveillance Do you really know all you need to know about your new car? Watch for super highways with detectors and cars with transmitters which will result in automatic traffic citations by mail.

Look at the recent installation by the City of San Francisco of cameras at selected intersections which now result in citations by mail, including a photograph of the violation. DNA (Def-bio-chem deoxyribonucleic acid) memories for computers and memory implants are now being created with aborted baby tissue. These and protein memories are big items in the artificial intelligence computer market. Well it is a world of micro-chips, smart cards, electronic-highways, super communications, auto surveillance and so many advancements that it is hard to determine what is good and what is preparing for the antichrist.

Extra Low Frequency: Research in Extra Low Frequency (“ELF”) is continuing to be explored by the military, both Russian and U.S. What does set up some warning flags, is a new facility in Alaska that is one of several large construction projects. These projects, as well as the skunk works in Nevada, have been anything but secret except as to the many aspects of their mission.

FACT: The Alaskan project is named HAARP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) and is used to create huge ELF virtual antennas to penetrate the earth.

FACT: ELF can be used to create a full global shield of heat or hot spots where they are needed in the manipulation of local weather. Has the weather been unusual lately? There are more then 36 of these antennas in northern Alaska and the project is going full speed ahead behind barbed wire and miles of chain link fence. Do they really know the long range effects of deep earth probes or ionospheric heating or local weather modification? If you would like the documented report on this project just ask for HAARP and we will send it to you.

Prisons Without Walls: We talk about micro-chips and silicon technology and the advancements that are being made i.e.. (memory chips doubling in capacity but not in size each year). What are some of the things that are coming or are already here. In the Futurist magazine July/August issue of Colorado, parole officer Max Winkler stated “If the micro-chip system succeeds the public may support the release of nonviolent, low-risk offenders from costly correctional facilities, leaving only the violent, high-risk criminals behind bars.”

When it comes to sentencing options the micro-chip implant seems to be high on the list. “The third generation of electronic supervision incorporating radio monitors, fuzzy logic, and MEDICAL IMPLANTS will likely be in place some time after 2001”, says Winkler. Custom-programmed microprocessor chips would monitor the offender’s physiological patterns and reactions. If the released criminal evidenced signs of aberrant behavior, the microprocessor chips could send an alert to the nearest receiver which would then be sent to the central monitoring station. He explains that “Such systems could be used to control the offender’s behavior if it were combined with a tiny reservoir of drugs that could be injected into the bloodstream. The unit containing the drugs would also be implanted under the skin, as with Norplant contraceptive. When unsuitable or alarming behavior is indicated, the microprocessor could trigger the monitor to release a measured amount of tranquilizer or a sexually dampening chemical. The computer chip could actually recognize each criminal’s pattern of antisocial behavior. It could even be programmed to not release a drug if a convicted pedophile was engaging in “normal” sexual behavior.” Well, they will tell you about all the good that can be done, but the ultimate goal is complete control.

Smaller Micro-Chips:  The Fall 1993 issue of EYE (which you can obtain by writing to EYE, Box 303, New York, NY 10009) states some interesting things on page 15 about technology: “The Japanese have invented a micro-dot which is perfect for human applications. It is a computer chip about the size of a pinhead which can be injected painlessly and invisibly.” The Sematech Corp. in Austin, Texas, announced a computer chip this year that is only 0.35 microns wide; roughly 1/200th the size of a human hair. Sematech supplied components used in weapons systems in the Gulf war and has agreed to supply American companies with the tools necessary to manufacture these chips.

Interface to Nerve Cells: The University of Michigan reports they are manufacturing electrodes made of machined silicon and laced with micro-circuitry that can interface to implants and to individual nerve cells. These grain of pepper sized devices can stimulate or record signals from a single nerve cell. This will enable a micro-chip implant to sense and control in a whole new manner. It could be used as an internal shock collar or for behavior modification or stimulation or in many other applications, some good, some questionable and some evil. We have repeated over and over again, do not get into electronic acupuncture. Folks, Revelation 13:16 is real and the micro-chip is being used for identification. For over 5 years we have shown you it was on it’s way and now it is here.

Conditioning:   An edition of 20/20 showed the imbedding of the micro-chip. Watch for the media blitz, which will tell you that you don’t need credit cards any more. The only thing you will need is a small micro-chip painlessly inserted just below the skin. With the implanted chip, there will be no chance of your valuable financial information falling into the wrong hands. It will be so easy to do all your financial transactions. The aged and infants first and then everybody.

The book of Revelation is true . . . . Come one, come all, step right up and get your micro-chip implant, good for anything that ails you. Here is a list of some of the things the micro-chip can be used for: Migraine headaches, birth control, behavior modification, upper/downer, sexual stimulant and sexual depressant. What will soon be commonly experienced is a new form of electronic acupuncture. Used as a transponder, the micro-chip emits a signal and gives vital information as well as a location marker. The antichrist will know who are his as he sits in front of the most sophisticated computer surveillance system in the world. Of course, he will also know who are not his.

Y2K: This may seem like old news, but listen to the wisdom here. When Y2K was mentioned it brought out various reactions in Christians and non-Christians alike. It seems there was no end to the self-proclaimed experts on the problem. There were books upon books upon books about what was going to happen along with the coming disasters, claiming the knowledge you and your family needed to survive THE MILLENNIUM BUG or BUGS. This is not meant to make light of what could have been a very serious problem. But, the problem should have driven us to the Lord Jesus Christ and the knowledge He provides in His book. As King Solomon advised, “and further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.” (Ecclesiastes 12:12).

Indeed, there were Christians who  looked at Y2K as a great opportunity to witness to the lost. They were preparing  for the opportunity to witness for our Lord when the times got bad. Indeed, this was very noble. But if they were not witnessing before Y2K, did they really believe that they would have time after Y2K? Our primary duty was to prepare our families spiritually, not physically, for whatever would come.

I have shared with many of you that we are headed to a one world government and that it would take a crisis that would cause all to turn to their world leaders for an answer. Well, since Y2K wasn’t the disaster that was predicted, what did happen during this time? Y2K was not an accident or oversight. It was allowed to happen and brought about the need to bring all people into a new large database system (in the name of Homeland Security), that will promise to guarantee greater safety for all. I am glad that God did not number me; rather He gave me a name and it is written down in Glory.

Please hear the cry of this tired old ex- engineer: Y2K was planned and accomplished the desired effect. And indeed, the Christians who should have stood on faith rushed to lead the panic, turning to the world for advice. Folks, we should have turned to the only one who is the answer, just STAND ON THE ROCK JESUS CHRIST should have been our cry. So, when the next predicted disaster looms before us, please take this advice.

Here it is: the very best hedge against Y2K or any of the other “Why Two Kays” is to sell all that you have and buy one share of Jesus. If you insist upon buying a survival manual, here it is: the best survival manual available, at no cost, 66 books all in one, covering all you need to know to survive any disaster.

The Futures Foolproof ID SYSTEMS BEING IMPLEMENTED TODAY, Denver, and Colo.: former President Clinton promised a revolution in the health care industry. Medicare’s computer system is outdated and inefficient and is buried under a mountain of ever-changing regulations, medical procedure codes, and fee schedules. Clinton wanted everyone to have a health-care “Smart Card” and we now see President Bush carrying on the same agenda only now through the guise of Homeland Security as a National Identification Card http://www.house.gov/paul/tst/tst2005/tst021405.htm.  The national ID card would solve the bookkeeping problems in the health care industry. The national ID (smart card) holds so much data, it would not only simplify the health care system, but could replace your wallet full of credit cards, as well as cash. Your Social Security number could be your universal account number to buy and sell in tomorrow’s cashless society. But what if your ID card (smart card) is lost, stolen, or mutilated beyond use? Unauthorized use will be impossible. The card owners fingerprint or retina scan will be programmed into the silicon “brain”. It will be read by an electronic scanning device, and must match the electronic “read” of the bearer’s fingerprints, retina scan and/or possibly your DNA. Only the rightful owner could use a “smart card.” The problem with these cards is that they can still be lost, stolen, mutilated or counterfeited. To deal with this inconvenience a sub-dermal device under the skin would solve all the above problems.

The technology is here today, and could be put into universal usage in the very near future. It is the Implantable Biochip. The biochip is about the size of a large grain of rice, and it is currently being implanted in animals with a needle, just under the skin. According to, the President of Destron/IDI  http://www.destronfearing.com/rfid.htm , the Boulder Colorado firm that manufactures the Implantable Biochip, the biochip has replaced tags on dogs and cats, and brands and cowbells on cattle. This technology provides foolproof identification since it utilizes radio transponders. It provides a means of quickly locating lost pets and stray or stolen livestock.  These implanted computer chips also are being used to track the health history of cattle and swine, to identify racehorses in Europe and monitor the migration pattern of salmon in the northwest. Folks, we’ve moved from identifying our cats and dogs which is now an identification of you also, (yes, you are in the database along with your pet), to the Verichip www.4verichip.com/verichip.htm which is a subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions / Digital Angel / Destron Fearing and now Verichip. The trail is leading to you.

 A VeriChip website describes the implantable chip this way: The VeriChip miniaturized Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Device is the core of all VeriChip applications. About the size of a grain of rice, each VeriChip contains a unique verification number, which can be used to access a subscriber-supplied database providing personal related information. And unlike conventional forms of identification, VeriChip cannot be lost, stolen, misplaced or counterfeited.

 Once implanted just under the skin, via a quick, painless outpatient procedure (much like getting a shot), the VeriChip can be scanned when necessary with a proprietary VeriChip scanner. A small amount of Radio Frequency Energy passes from the scanner energizing the dormant VeriChip, which then emits a radio frequency signal transmitting the individuals unique verification (VeriChipID) number. The VeriChip Subscriber Number then provides instant access to the Global VeriChip Subscriber (GVS) Registry – through secure, password protected web access to subscriber-supplied information 

 The Implantable Biochip could contain your Social Security number and all your health records, financial records, police record, and your religion . . . everything about you! The Implantable Biochip is a radio transponder (which never needs batteries or replacement); a person may be tracked when this system is integrated with the network of twelve primary communications satellites that now orbit the earth. This link-up could provide virtually instantaneous worldwide computer reception of microchip transponder signals from anywhere on the planet. There is a locator program now operating in the satellite network. It incorporates an inexpensive transponder that can be carried by back country skiers, hikers, and others who venture into remote areas.

 The microchip technology has now gotten smaller and smaller and currently the mu-chip out of Japan is being promoted www.hitachi-eu.com/mu/ as the world’s smallest RFID integrated circuit it provides the ability to track, trace and monitor items cost effectively, enhances security, protects brand image and can offer high visibility throughout supply or value chain or lifecycle of the tagged item.

 This is another one of those problem solvers. If you can’t get close enough to people to identify them just (click on) insert a microchip with a sniper rifle (to see report) and when they go through a check point guess what? You get your man. This chip can be inserted with no more pain than a Texas size mosquito bite. This is just one more of the myriad of problem solving devices that have come out of the technology, good or bad, that will be used for identification.

   Tim Willard, executive officer of the World Future Society, a Washington DC organization that claims 27,000 members worldwide, told the Marin Independent Journal that the technology behind today’s microchip is “fairly uncomplicated” and with a little refinement, could be used in a variety of human applications. “Conceivably,” he said, “a number could be assigned at birth and go with a person throughout life.” He said a microchip could most likely be implanted on the back of the right or left hand for convenience, “so that it would be easy to scan.” He went on to explain, “It could be used as a universal identification card that would replace credit cards, passports, that sort of thing . . . It could be programmed to replace a medical alert bracelet. For example, at the scene of an accident, a medic could scan the person to find out his or her recent medical history, allergies or a relative to get in touch with. This would be especially valuable if the person was unconscious. The microchip could also replace the need for house and car keys.”

 According to Willard, a human microchip ID system “would work best with a highly centralized computer system where one identification number would gain access to medical and academic records, home security – all kinds of things.” Willard says that research is under way to develop a living biochip.” This biochip – made from living protein -“could be surgically implanted in the brain, making it possible to program or upload an unlimited amount of information into the mind- without having ever cracked open a book.” Christians are familiar with this scripture— Revelation 13:16. 

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.

18  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.   It speaks of a time when many will swear their allegiance to and worship the Antichrist in exchange for the “mark of the beast”. It is only with this mark that people will be able to buy or sell.

 One cannot speculate that the smart card or Homeland Security’s National ID Card or Implantable Biochip will be the mark of the beast, but they certainly are precursors. I am often asked, “What shall we do?” L
uke 21:28  And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

We find that even the word “Prophecy” brings about such a wide variety of reactions that most Christians place it somewhere between educated guess work and some sort of mystic experience. And so we tend to view prophecy with a very skeptic attitude. However, God’s prophets and their prophecies are 100% accurate. You won’t find their messages at the supermarket check out stands, but you will find them throughout the pages of the bible. They are not written for us to ignore.

Indeed, Jesus was the fulfillment of many prophecies. But, even moreover, please remember that the word says in Revelation 19:10 that “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Does the Bible say we are in the end times? Look at the following and compare it to Biblical prophecy. You may choose to believe that some of these events are coincidence, but that will surely take a lot of faith.

1. In Revelation 16:12 the Bible says: “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” On January 13, 1990, the Indianapolis Star carried a headline “Turkey will cut off flow of Euphrates for 1 month.” Their purpose was to allow the filling of a reservoir. But what is important is that the river can now be dried up at anytime that Turkey or whoever controls the dam so desires.

2. In Revelation 9:15-16 the Bible says: “And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand; and I heard the number of them.” An army of 200 million men was not possible in times past. But Mao Tse Tung, the chairman of China, has boasted that he can field a 200 million man army.

3. Revelation Chapter 13 speaks to a world wide numbering system. The system of the antichrist is now here with massive computers and microchip implants. We have all been assigned numbers and most people of the world are in at least 20 – 30 databases.

4. The Bible tells us that in the last days there shall arise a new world order: Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. (Daniel 7:23) And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. (Revelation 13:7) We have a new world order. And now it is not just rumored, but it is spoken about boldly. The Chicago Tribune reported on September 12, 1990 that then President Bush said “Iraq is the first test for the new world order.” President Clinton and Al Gore have both stated that the solution to our problems is a one world government.

Let’s look at some more prophecy evidence:

1. The division of the twelve tribes of Israel into two nations. The northern ten (Israel) and the southern two (Judah) in 931 B.C. (Deuteronomy 28 & Isaiah 18:2), with both of these being carried off into captivity (Jeremiah 9:13-16; 15:4; 18:16-17). Israel first in 721 B.C. to be lost among the nations; and Judah into an initial 70 year Babylonian captivity in 587 B.C. (Ezekiel 12:15-20; 22:15) This was followed by their return to their homeland in 536 B.C., being conquered by Rome in 63 B.C. (Hosea 8:8; 9:17), and, finally, ceasing to exist as a national entity as a result of their final destruction and dispersal into all nations by the Romans in 70 AD. (Amos 9:8-9)

2. The rise and fall of the following Empires (Daniel 2:21-45, 7:1-28): BABYLON (612-539 B.C.) MEDO-PERSIA (539-331 B.C.) GREECE (331-163 B.C.) ROME (63 B.C.- AD 476)

3. The birth, life, death and resurrection and ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ, history’s best documented life. Jesus Christ fulfilled over 60 specific prophecies, thus indisputably demonstrating His divine nature. Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 53:3; Psalms 69:4; Psalms 16:10; Psalms 109:4; Galatians 4:4; Matthew 1:18; John 1:11; John 15:23-35; Matthew 28:9; Luke 23:34.

4. The descent of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Church. Joel 2:28; Zechariah 12:10; Isaiah 32:15; 59:12; Ezekiel 39:29.

5. The rebirth of the nation of Israel. Isaiah 11:11; Jeremiah 30:3; Ezekiel 11:17; 20:34; 36:8; 37:1-10, 16-22; Zechariah 10:10.

6. The regaining of control by Israel of the city of Jerusalem (in 1967) Luke 21:24.

7. The rise to world power of a nation to the uttermost north of Israel, believed to be Russia (since 1945), followed by the development of a confederacy which threatens to move militarily against Israel (since the end of WWII) Ezekiel 38.

8. The formation of a ten nation confederacy which arises out of the ancient Roman Empire (1957-1980 and onward) (Daniel 2:41-45; 7:19-28.)

9. The move toward a global church, which is a conglomerate of many religions. (This movement has gained momentum in the decades of the ’60s and ’70s, coupled with the revival of the occult on a global scale, in the decade of the 1970s). Revelation 17.

10. The setting of the world stage for the acceptance of a global ruler who will have the capacity to exercise complete totalitarian control over all the earth. (Deteriorating world conditions, the development of the computer, the UPC, Electronic Fund Transfer and the laser are bringing these conditions to pass in our time.) Daniel 2:29-44; 7:7-28; 11:21-45; Matthew 21:45; II Thessalonians 2:4-10; Revelation 13:1-18; 16:17; 19:11-20.

Yes indeed! We’ve come a long way through the peaks of prophecy foreseen and described centuries ago by those Godly men of old. Please read the scriptures referenced above to be better aware of the things that have happened, and those which have not yet transpired. The fulfillment of the prophecies listed above is a matter of history which can be checked and verified by any student, and the pace of prophetic fulfillment is obviously picking up. We hope that after reading these materials, you will be better informed of the things that are going to take place as we head toward the end of the world, and the beginning of life in eternity. The only escape from the judgment facing mankind is salvation through Jesus Christ. Invite Jesus into your life today. He will deliver you from all of the evil the enemy has planned, and will grant you a place in His eternal kingdom. “Then Peter said unto them, Repent , and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” (Acts 2:38-39) Jesus said: “Repent : for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 4:17)

What a time to be alive as we watch the system that will be the substitute government of the Antichrist grow before our very eyes. We do not have a problem with the fact that Jesus Christ will have a true one world government. Why then do we have a problem with the fact that the Antichrist is soberly working with determination to establish his system, which he calls “GLOBAL GOVERNMENT” or “THE NEW WORLD ORDER” or “ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT”? The name is intended to mask his real intent. The Word of GOD shows us that the Antichrist system will be established. Revelation 13:16 says that the people of the world will follow the Antichrist and receive a mark. Revelation 13:17 says that without this mark, you will not be able to buy or sell.

Now my question to you is, WHO DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO DO THE ACCOUNTING? We see that Revelation 17:12,13 tells us of ten kings over ten kingdoms who all have one mind and give their power unto the beast. Could it be? Remember, the Antichrist wants to replace Christ, not to co-exist with Him. Just how evident are the steps of the Antichrist and how far has he gone towards the establishment of his one world government? Global concerns are receiving greater attention, such as the need for world-wide control of the environment.

Global banking is presently in place and international treaties are establishing unified world economic regions. Religious barriers are rapidly eroding. The pieces are in place and the time is at hand. There seems to be an acceleration of important events in world politics. What is happening is happening fast. President Clinton made a statement that he had done more in the first year of office than had been done in the previous forty years. We have now taken down most barriers in the abortion areas and homosexuals are well on the way to being classed as a minority, which could require each employer to hire a sufficient quota of homosexuals. We now have condoms in the schools. Yet, we have the highest teen age pregnancy rate in history. Not only are all these events progressing rapidly, but we have seen little opposition to any program, i.e.

The Brady Bill, the NAFTA agreement and also on the international side, there seems to be great movement with a lot of ease. Could it be that this was all planned from that Bilderberger meeting in Germany when Clinton received their endorsement? If that’s the case, then what’s next?

One World Government: Is one world government next, and if so, what are the signs of one world government? In order to answer this question, we must first ask some basic questions.

1. What is “One World Government”? (definition)

2. When will it happen? (or is it happening?)

3. Who will be in charge? (or are they already in charge?)

4. Will it affect America? (aren’t we protected by God?)

5. Will I be affected? (my personal bank account? my home?)

6. What does the world tell me to do? (fill your barns and guard them)

7. What does Christian leadership say to do? (fill your barns and guard them, and buy gold)

8. What does the Bible say to do? (bake bread it could buy a bag of gold)

9. Is this one of the signs of the last days? (isn’t this a matter of opinion?)

It is important to establish that there are two views of history and events. The first is that there is no conspiracy and all that has happened was either accidental or by chance. These chance events would include World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the 168 wars that are going on all over the world today. There is, however, a SECOND view there has been, and is flourishing today a very sophisticated and well planned conspiracy that is molding and shaping us into a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT which will have absolute control of all aspects of life: political, social and religious. This “three legged milk-stool” of the One World Government is one of the signs of the last days before the return of Jesus Christ.

1. What is One World Government? To understand what it is we must first look at what it is not! First of all it is not of God. There is a one world government coming and there will be a world ruler and his name will be Jesus. He will return with the Saints and stand on the mount of Olives as prophesied in Zechariah 14:4. We know that Jesus will establish HIS ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT and since the antichrist is “in place of” or “against” Christ, then his plan, which will fail, is to establish a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT under his, the antichrist, rule. As the return of Christ approaches, the time of the antichrist is running out. And the antichrist has read the last chapter of the Bible and has full knowledge that he will lose. The modern plan for a global government began with Freemasonry in 1390 and the Scottish Rites in 1395. The first master global plan was prepared by the Rothchilds in 1773. The implementation didn’t take shape until a man by the name of Adam Weishaupt, who had studied to be a Jesuit priest and was a Freemason, formed an organization called “The Illuminati,” on May 1, 1776.

The alliance between Freemasonry and the Illuminati didn’t arise until July 16, 1782. These organizations are powerful. The common leadership behind these organizations was aware that world control would require economic control. In 1913, they were responsible for the Federal Reserve Special Act of 1913. The Federal Reserve was incorporated in December 1914 as a private corporation. The Federal Reserve is no more federal than Federal Express (nor does it have any reserves.) However, the so-called “Federal” Reserve is an important tool intended to permit a few to ultimately control the world’s monetary system. Read what these men had to say about the Federal Reserve: Lewis T. McFadden (Chairman of the House Banking Commission, U.S. Congressman): “We have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, hereinafter called the Fed. They are not government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of the U.S. for the benefit of themselves and their foreign and domestic swindlers, rich and predatory moneylenders.”

McFadden died mysteriously in 1936 after three attempts on his life. George W. Malove (U.S. Senator from Nevada): When speaking before Congress in 1957, he alluded as follows to the families that secretly own the Federal Reserve Bank and control the finances of the U.S.: “I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them over the past 49 years, they would move on Washington, they would not wait for an election . . . it adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the U.S.” Baron M. A. Rothschild: “Give me control over a nation’s currency and I care not who makes it’s laws.” “Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is master of ALL its legislation and commerce.”

The Illuminati was also responsible for the formation of the Council on Foreign Relations (“CFR”). This organization was formed in July, 1921. The primary purposes of the CFR and the more recently established Tri-Lateral Commission are to establish a one world government. Read what these men had to say: Zblgniew Brzeninski (National Security Advisor to Carter and four other presidents, Executive Director of the Tri-Lateral Commission): “The Technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values.” Peter Hoagland (Nebraska State Senator): On a radio program in 1983, he stated: “Fundamental, Bible- believing people do not have the right to indoctrinate their children in their religious beliefs because we, the state, are preparing them for the year 2000, when America will be part of a one world order global society and their children will not fit in.”

Carrol Quigley (deceased Bill Clinton mentor, Professor of History at Georgetown University, member of the CFR): In his book “Hope & Tragedy”, he stated: “The C.F.R. is the American Branch of a society which originated in England and believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one world rule established.” In other words, the CFR’s activities are treasonous to the U.S. Constitution. They mean to put an end to the United States and make the U.S. part of their global government scheme. One only has to read their own publication, “Foreign Affairs Magazine”, to get a first hand lesson in their treachery. Rowan Gaither (President of the Ford Foundation in 1954): “We operate here under directives which emulate from the White House . . . The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant making power to alter life in the U.S. so that we can comfortably be merged with the Soviet Union.” James Paul Warburg (foreign agent of the Rothchild Dynasty, major player in the “Federal” Reserve Act scam): He stated on February 17, 1950 before the U.S. Senate: “We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether world government will be achieved by conquest or by consent.”

Henry Kissinger (Secretary of State to Nixon): He said at a Bilderberger meeting, “Today, Americans would be outraged if U.N. forces entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful.” Warren Christopher (former Secretary of State under Clinton): He stated on January 25, 1993, on CNN: “We must get the NEW WORLD ORDER on track and bring the U.N. into its correct roll in regards to the U.S.” The Washington Times reported on May 12, 1996: “Secretary of State Warren Christopher has declared protection of the “global environment” to be a fundamental principle of American foreign policy. In a recent speech at Stanford University, Mr. Christopher unveiled the “Environmental Initiative for the 21st century,” an ambitious agenda of green diplomatic initiatives he intends to promote with renewed vigor throughout the world.”

Mikhail Gorbachev : In November 1987, Mr. Gorbachev made the following statements to the Politburo “Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about Glasnost and Peretroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal change within the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep.” (See the following paragraph for more of Mr. Gorbachev’s intentions.) Other organizations have been established in modern history to assist in the establishment of the new world order. The Bilderbergers were formed in 1954, as a sister organization to the CFR and with careful manipulation saw to it that Clinton was elected President.

The Club of Rome is using environmental policies, and the unified protection of the worldwide environment as a force moving towards a new world order. This group has divided the world into 10 regions and has placed Mikhail Gorbachev as chairman of the World Environmental Movement from his base in San Francisco. The Tri-Lateral Commission, formed by David Rockefeller in July, 1972, and using contrived and planned gas shortages, turned Japan into an industrial giant over night. This was done to shift money (we began buying Japanese cars faster than they could produce them) to Japan, and Europe with the end result being, lost jobs, lost technology and lost capabilities to bring down an already staggering trade deficit.

2. When Will One World Government Happen? The Bible does not set the date for the creation of the one world government. Rather, the Lord has a way of setting His own dates and embarrassing the date setters (recall “88 Reasons Why He Will Come in 88,” “1994,” etc.). Yet, we can observe events as they occur and return to the Bible, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to see just where they fit in. The move to a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT has been carefully planned, slowly conditioning people, moving them step-by-step towards public acceptance of a one world government. We are being conditioned similar to the story of a frog in a pan of water with fire beneath it. The frog will remain in the heating pan as the water temperature rises and finally scalds the frog to death. The frog will not move, gradually becoming accustomed to the heat. And the frog is comfortable. However, if you were to throw a frog into a pan of hot water, the frog would jump out. Like the scalded frog, we have been conditioned to accept a one world government! Just read the following and let the Lord show you when or how far into it we are.

The CFR publishes a very informative quarterly journal called “Foreign Affairs”. More often than not, important new shifts in U.S. policy, or highly indicative attitudes of political figures, have been telegraphed in its pages. For instance, when he was preparing to run for President in 1967, Nixon made himself acceptable to the insiders of the establishment with an article in the October 1967 issue of Foreign Affairs. In it, he called for a new policy of openness toward Red China, a policy he himself initiated later in 1972. The April 1974 issue of Foreign Affairs carried a very explicit recommendation for carrying out the world government scheme of CFR founder Edward Mandell House. Authored by State Department veteran and Columbia University Professor Richard N. Gardner (himself a member), “The Hard Road to World Order”, admits that a single leap into world government by an organization like the U.N. is unrealistic. Instead Gardner urged the continued piecemeal delivery of national sovereignty to a variety of international organizations. He called for “an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece.” He named as organizations to accomplish his goal the International Monetary Fund, The World Bank, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, the Law of the Sea Conference, the World Food Conference, the World Population Conference, disarmament programs, and a United Nations military force. This approach, Gardner said, “can produce some remarkable concessions of sovereignty that could not be achieved on an across-the-board basis.”

The NAFTA Agreement, as well as many other agreements, are solidifying North America as 1 of 10 world regions. Could these be the 10 horns of Revelation 17:12-4: “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. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”

Professor Gardner’s preference for destroying the freedom and independence of the U.S. in favor of the CFR’s goal of world government may thoroughly dominates top circles in our nation today. Yet the end of these attempts is written in God’ eternal word. Still, the men who would scrap the United States Constitution are praised as “progressives” and “far-sighted thinkers.” The only question that remains among these powerful insiders is which method to use to carry out their treasonous plan. But, even that question is no mystery our Lord.

3. Who Will be in Charge of One World Government? I believe the antichrist system is already in charge. Babylon, reborn in the religious system, the Opus Dei, took control of the Vatican Banks in 1981 and along with control of the World Council of Churches, we have that leg of the three-legged milk-stool. The secret societies are flourishing and the recruiting of men into Freemasonry has reached into State Fairs and public events. This all goes back to the families: Rothchilds, Rockefellers and the Opus Banks. They control the buying, selling, food distribution and, in turn, control the people.

4. Will One World Government Affect America? Yes! America is being affected and will be more so. We are a nation that was founded on Godly principles. However, as the Nation of Israel did many times, we have taken up wicked ways and judgment is on the way. We are sacrificing babies in an 8.1 billion dollar a year abortion industry. We are buying fetal tissue from the Russians for use in cosmetics, tissue banks and brain implants, to name a few things. The scripture says of whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). God is going to require much of us, for he has indeed blessed us!

5. Will I Be Affected? The very foundations of our faith will be tested. We are already being labeled. We see persecution coming, and it will cost you to proclaim the name of Jesus. It cost HIM everything!

6. What Does the World Tell Me to Do? The world knows something has gone wrong. Eighty-five percent (85%) of the people in a recent poll said, “This cannot go on.” But what is their answer? Put your money in bigger barns, more savings, bigger houses and get all the pleasure while it lasts.

7. What Do Many Christian Leaders Say to Do? They say “Buy my book for financial security” only $19.95 and 29.95 for a video so you can learn the principles of how to handle your money and by the way we take VISA and MASTER CHARGE. It seems strange that those that are telling us how to handle our money want us to use a system that is usury in its best form. We will tithe to the bank but will not tithe to the Lord. The cry is the same as the world build bigger barns, store up silver and gold.

8. What Does the Bible Say to Do? Well, you can’t eat gold, and a loaf of bread could well buy a bag of gold. The Bible instructs believers to share, feed the poor, the needy, widows and fatherless and not to worry about what tomorrow brings. Rather, we are to live each day to bring the lost to Christ. If, instead, you sit on top of a storehouse of food and possessions with an AK47, protecting it and shooting the first guy that comes along (dead men don’t repent and get saved), you are not following Jesus: “And he spake a parable unto them, saying, ‘The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.’ And he said unto his disciples, ‘Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.'” (Luke 12:16-22)

9. Is the One World Government One of the Signs of the Last Days? We are forced to look at reality folks. The hottest selling items right now are security devices, protection equipment, CLUBs for your car, weapons, hand guns, bars for your windows, wood grain steel doors for the front of your house. Riots, protests, marches, marshal law, FEMA, U.N. troops in U.S., U.S. troops under the U.N., black helicopters and so much more is going on today.

Global Control System: When we think of the antichrist, our thoughts often go to a guy in long red underwear and horns holding a pitchfork in his hand. And that is what he would want you to believe. The antichrist is smooth and clever and the bible says that he was corrupted by his beauty. So forget him looking like Mr. double-ugly. He would also want us to believe that he is disorganized, so that his workings might be missed as random chance events, not an organized plan of events. The following is a list of some of the suspect organizations, many of which are typified by secret oaths and agendas, along with the relevant dates: Freemasonry Claim to Egypt (1390) Freemasonry Scottish Rite (1395) First Master Global Plan-Rothschild (1773) Illuminati Adam Weishaupt (May 1, 1776) Masonic alliance with Illuminati (July 16, 1782) League of Just Men (1810) Secret Plan Global Society Skull & Bones (1833) Council of Foreign Relations (July 1921) United Nations (1945) Club of Rome Divides World into 10 Regions (1950’s) Bilderbergers International (1954) Tri-lateral Commission July (1972)

New Money: Imagine you’re watching the late news on TV, and just before the sign-off, the Anchorman reads an emergency notice from the secretary of the Treasury: “Warning as of midnight tonight, $50 and $100 federal reserve notes ( the currency of drug dealers and money launderers) are no longer legal tender.” “American citizens and resident aliens have 72 hours to exchange these high denomination bills at their bank, S&L or credit union. Detailed identification must be provided and anyone seeking to exchange more than $1,000 must fill out IRS form 666.” This probably all sounds a little far-fetched right?

Congressman Ron Paul says: “I’ll never forget the day I closed the door to my Congressional office, sat down and saw the New Money designs. They made my skin crawl: garish colors blighted with holograms, diffraction gratings, metal ribbons, and chemical alarms.” More from Congressman Ron Paul: “I’ve watched the Treasury test various batches of new money paper produced by the Crane Paper Company of Dalton, Massachusetts. And I watched when the Treasury asked Crane, just the other day, to produce massive quantities of Metal-Embedded, Plastic-Threaded new money paper.” This new money is to be traceable, in case you are wondering why. What the Feds actually want is Total Surveillance. That’s why the new money will be electronically traceable. And it’s why, when you go to the bank to exchange your old cash, you will be put on the IRS list if you hand over more than $10,000. The government is already running a cashless society test. At the Giant U.S. Marine base on Parris Island, South Carolina, no cash may be used. Each Marine is issued a “Smart Card” and his pay is electronically entered on it. He must use the card to pay for everything he buys, from haircuts to magazines to movies. On it’s computers, the government can thus trace every cent, and maintain a “Total Financial Profile” of each Marine.

Israel is God’s time clock. The church age, as precious as it is to our Lord, is but an interlude between the sixty-ninth and seventieth weeks within the 70 weeks of years prophesied in Daniel 7:20-27. To recognize God’s chronology, we must look for signs that signal the approach of the seventieth week of years. “And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” (Luke 21:29-32) Jesus warned us to be aware of the signs of the times (Matthew 16:2-3) so that the day of His return would not find us unaware (Luke 21:34-36).

He then gave numerous signs that would show the nearness of His return (Luke 21:25-28). He illustrated the principle of signs with the parable of a fig tree. In the parable of the fig tree, we see a symbol of the nation of Israel. We believe in the parable Jesus is telling us that when Israel comes back to life (like a tree buds in springtime) that is, becomes a nation again, to expect that His return is near. If you refer to the chart entitled “Captivity of Israel” on the next page, you will notice that God’s word shows us that Israel would be restored as a nation on May 14, 1948. Israel became a nation May 14, 1948. Why is this date so significant? Luke 21:32 talks about a generation that will not pass away before all these things be fulfilled. The generation that this scripture refers to is the generation that was born when Israel became a nation. This generation, born in 1948, will not pass away before the return of Jesus Christ. If we average the generations listed in the Bible for the 2000 years before Jesus, we can conclude that a generation is about 52 years. When we add this to May 1948, we come to somewhere quite near the year 2000. Similarly, if we calculate 6,000 years or 6 days (a day is as 1,000 years and 1,000 years as a day II Peter 3:8) from the time of the creation of Adam and Eve, we come to somewhere near the year 2000. The millennium corresponds to the 7th day in which God rested (ceased His work). So we too enter into the rest of the Lord during the millennium (1000 years) our work is finished.

We are not suggesting that 2000 is the year of the second coming of Jesus Christ. But, by these signs we know we are getting so very close to the soon coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us look at how God’s word provides us with the date May 14, 1948. In Ezekiel 4, God instructed Ezekiel to lay on his side for 430 days, representing 430 years of iniquity upon Israel. But He also promised that He will gather Israel “out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land” (Ezekiel 36:24.) True to prophecy, the people were taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, in 606 B.C. (Daniel 1.) The Babylonian Captivity lasted 70 years as prophesied in Jeremiah 25:11, ending in 536 B.C. (Ezra 1.) At the conclusion of the Bablylonian Captivity, 360 years remained of the 430 years prophesied by Ezekiel. But Israel did not repent of its sin. Indeed only 50,000 people returned at the end of the 70 years (Ezra 2:64-65.) Most of Israel choose not to return with Zerubbabel at that time. In Leviticus 26:18, God warned Israel that if Israel continued in sin after punishment, the punishment would be multiplied 7 times. When the remaining 360 years is multiplied by 7, the punishment extends to 2,520 years.

God’s prophetic year is based upon a 360 day year (see Genesis 7:11, 7:24 and 8:5; Revelation 12:6 and 12:14, as examples). 2,520 years of 360 days is 907,200 days. Based upon our solar calendar, this is 2483 years, 9 months and 21 days. Adding this period to the date of the decree of King Cyrus discussed in Ezra 1 (see above), we come to what is most probably May 14, 1948 (do not forget that there is no year 0 A.D.)

God’s Word & Jerusalem: June 7, 1967 The exact same calculation can also apply to the captivity of Jerusalem. When the people were taken into captivity in 606 B.C., the city of Jerusalem was not then destroyed. However, in 587 B.C., Jerusalem was taken and the temple destroyed (II Kings 25.) 70 years later, in 517 B.C., the temple was reconstructed (Ezra 6:15.) When we add 2483 years, 9 months and 21 days to this date, we come to what is most probably June 7, 1967. What is special about this date? June 7, 1967 is the concluding day of the “6-Day War,” in which Israel, for the first time since 517 B.C., regained Jerusalem. God’s keen interest in Israel clearly continues into this century. The Signs of Israel Following are some additional signs which point to God’s special interest in Israel and the final countdown to the Lord’s return. This list is by no means complete, but includes just some items that hopefully will excite you to get into God’s word:

I. God’s Protective Hand on Israel Shortly after Israel became a nation she was attacked. With God, a one-eyed general, and only one airplane, Israel was victorious. In 1967, in 6 days, although vastly outnumbered, Israel repelled all invaders and recaptured Jerusalem. In the Iraq war, 39 missiles were fired into Israel, but not one single Israeli was killed. Israel has prospered and grown. Folks, God’s hand is on Israel.

II. God’s Restoration

A. The Jews return home In 1882 there were approximately 25,000 Jews in Palestine. In 1900 there were 50,000. In 1922 there were 84,000. In 1931 there were 175,000. In 1948 there were 650,000. (Israel became a Nation). In 1952 there were 1,421,000. Today there are approximately 3,500,000 Jews in Palestine (Israel). This re-gathering and prospering of Israel as a distinct nation is exactly what God said He would do. In Ezekiel 34, God said: “For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out . . . And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.” (34:11,13) In Isaiah 43, God said: “I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; (43:6) The number of Jews has increased over 120 times in less than 100 years. In Ezekiel 36, God said: “For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.” In Jeremiah 31, God said: “Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.” (Jeremiah 31:8) God said He would bring back His people from all countries, some of which are surprising.

B. Ethiopian Jews Return to Israel “3,000 year journey now complete, Ethiopian Jews return home. In Ethiopian history it is recorded that about 3,000 years ago the queen of Sheba visited Solomon. Scripture states that they exchanged gifts. Ethiopian history fills in the gaps, according to history they were married and produced a son named Memelik, who was educated in Jerusalem, but after a time returned home with his mother. From that day to this, the Ethiopian Jews have awaited their destiny. On the 24th and 25th of May, Operation Solomon brought them home at last.” (Excerpted from an article in News From Israel, 9/28/91.)

C. Soviet Jews Return to Israel “1 million Soviet Jews head for their new homeland.” Time, 1/14/91.

III. The Temple Prophecy is now being fulfilled as to the soon returning of Christ and the building of the temple. Although God will no longer dwell in a temple constructed by men (Acts 7:48), the temple in Jerusalem must be built again so that God’s word is fulfilled. II Thessalonians tells us that the anti-christ will sit in the temple and proclaim himself to be God (2:4). So a temple will be located in Jerusalem on the holy site (Mount Zion) as the time of the end draws near.

A. Rebuilding temple on disputed site Moslems also claim Mt. Zion as a holy site and have constructed the dome of the rock there. Scholars have long maintained that it would have to be destroyed in order to build the temple for the Jews. Recent evidence indicates that the Moslem mosque is actually located in the Court of the Gentiles which would be an open area outside the temple itself. The Jews have been preparing to rebuild the temple for years. Some of the massive foundation stones have already been quarried and at least one attempt was made to place one of these stones at the site. Also being prepared at this time are other items related to the temple and items necessary to cleanse the temple and to perform priestly duties within the temple.

B. High Priest Breastplate Currently under construction is the High Priest’s breastplate set with 12 gemstones representing the Tribes of Israel. Excerpted from an article by the Associated Press, by Mary Sedor. Please Read Exodus chapters 28-30 about the breastplate and other garments of the High Priest.

C. Tools for the temple Instruments of worship and sacrifice being displayed. Excerpted from an article in Prophecy in the News, 9/89.

D. Red Heifer Ashes from red heifer needed to cleanse temple. Excerpted from an article in News in Israel, 3/90. Please read Numbers 19:1-6.

E. Blue Dye Israel welcomes back tekhelet snails. This snail is noted for its blue coloring and is necessary to mark certain religious items. This snail once thought to be extinct is now producing in abundance along the shores of Israel. Prophecy in News, 2/91.

F. Did the ark return with the Ethiopian Jews? There is strong historical evidence that the ark has been in Ethiopia for the past 3,000 years.

The Encyclopedia Britannica records that Aksum, an ancient city in Tigre, Abysinia (modern Ethiopia), contains the ancient church where, according to tradition, the Tobot or Ark of the Covenant, brought from Jerusalem by the son of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, was deposited and is still supposed to rest. Also Emperor Hailie Selassie alluded to this. Mussolini aimed to take the Ark in 1936 when he invaded Ethiopia (The Biblical Evangelist, 8/1/91.) Israel is God’s time clock. We need to heed the warning of our Lord to watch (Israel and other signs) and to pray that we be “accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21:36.) Let us not be found in disobedience to His command. Remember the words of Jesus, when He said: “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)
