John W. Whitehead is a well-known and highly respected attorney who specializes in constitutional law. Thousands of U.S. citizens have contacted him when they thought their civil or religious rights were being violated. His nonprofit organization, The Rutherford Institute, has defended multitudes without charge in courts all over the United States.
This famous award-winning attorney has written more than two dozen books, written more than a dozen law review articles and he has been involved in cases that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
He recently appeared on Glen Beck’s radio program and he writes a weekly article that is posted on the Institute’s website (www.rutherford.org). It is also printed in hundreds of newspapers.
Mr. Whitehead’s most recent article is titled, “Things Are Getting Scary: Global Police, Precrime and the War on Domestic ‘Extremists.’”
This reminds me of something Jesus said about the signs of His coming, “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake” (Matt. 24:9).
Many Christians in the U.S don’t think they will be persecuted before the Rapture. We should pray that they are right, but it is fair to ask why this constitutional attorney said that “Things are getting scary?”
One scary thing is that the government is taking steps to establish a global police force (The UN Strong Cities Network) and Jesus said believers will be hated in all nations. “Global” and “all nations” covers the same amount of territory which includes the U.S.
Another scary thing is, the people that the Obama Administration calls domestic extremists. They are not Muslims who rape women, sell women and children into slavery; bury men alive and shoot, crucify or behead others. No!
In the eyes of the Obama Administration the domestic extremists are ordinary citizens that own guns, oppose abortion, oppose same-sex marriage, oppose world government, want a balanced budget, have conservative political views, etc.
The domestic extremists are mostly conservatives who want their government to follow the U.S. Constitution; those who want theirfreedom of speech, their freedom of religion and things like that.Many are Christians, but some belong to the TEA Party, the National Rifle Association and other groups.
Another scary thing is that this war on domestic extremism won’t be about the police targeting Christians and conservatives for crimes they have committed. No!
It will be about the police targeting Christians and conservatives toprevent them from committing a crime. People won’t get in trouble for anything they have done.
People will get in trouble for what the government thinks they might do. The government will target them for what they believe, what they say, what they own, who their friends are, where they go, what they are against, etc. Their offense will be disagreeing with their government.
I may be a wrong, but I believe that during the Tribulation period it will come down to people who support the government by taking a mark, name or number—they will be left alone. But people who won’t support the government in that way will be persecuted and killed.
And what if there are Muslims in the White House who don’t believe those who behead people are extremists?
Another scary thing is that the government is building a surveillance system to collect data on everyone. Face scans, eye scans, hand scans, ID cards and DNA collection are a reality.
A spy center to collect data on phone calls, e-mails, Google searches is a reality. Fusion centers with area data bases that contain information on so-called domestic extremists are a reality.
The Rapture doesn’t scare me. But the scary things Mr. Whitehead wrote about cause me to think that it could be close and to know that there is much to rejoice about.
