The following will hopefully demonstrate just how late the hour really is.
In a particular generation in the distant past, just after the worldwide Flood, a certain event took place in the land of Shinar. Through one language and one speech mankind gathered together to make a name for themselves by building a tower that reached into the heavens.
“But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, ‘Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.’ So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city. Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth” (Genesis 11:5-9).
As seen in the verses above after God stated in reference to mankind that “nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them,” He chose to take global action to stop them from continuing to build the city called Babel.
Fast-forward to the current generation and mankind is seemingly again at a place where “nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.”
“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase” (Daniel 12:4).
Although there are some who believe that the famous prophecy spoken to Daniel refers to something different, I take it at its plain and simple meaning. Our current generation was in view at “the time of the end.”
Now “the sons of men” have the ability through modern technology to communicate with each other “over the face of all the earth.” Satan is obviously using this occasion as an opportunity to build a united world against God just as he did at Babel.
The result of this global communication will of course be the one-world government prophesied in the book of Revelation:
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation” (Revelation 13:16-17, 7b).
The consequence of this evil global action will be the global judgment of the human race as promised by God:
“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).
I have been posting videos to the Internet for a number of years. The videos have varied from home-movies of white spotted fawns bouncing through my yard to sky bending airshow performances I have recorded. On occasion I may upload brief portions of news broadcasts that highlight the unfolding or lining up of certain prophetic events in our world today.
Over the years I have never been warned about copyright claims to potential “third party content” in my videos. However, starting within the past few months, within seconds of uploading a video to the Internet a video will likely be flagged with the following warning: “Matched third party content.”
Within a moment of a video upload which contained a brief news clip of the riots that recently plagued America, the video was slapped with the “Matched third party content” flag. Then I got to thinking about the technology involved in accomplishing such an action within milliseconds.
As I have written before, most people living a normal life in America are within range of a variety of devices which are capable of receiving and sending audio and sometimes video of almost everything we say and do.
We all know that our written words are capable of being recorded via emails, etc. but people often don’t realize the indispensable jackpot which is our spoken word.
The technology required to accomplish this has been in our hands and on our nightstands for years. Only now there finally exists not only the ability to record everything you say but to also permanently store and detain your words for future recall.
It is my belief that millions of smartphones, tablet pc’s, Bluetooth devices in vehicles, etc. (and now apparently your Samsung TV) are simultaneously recording and sending audio of our spoken words (and if equipped with a camera video is being sent as well) directly to the NSA’s super data server computers to be confined within the massive data storage complex called the Utah data center.
The powers that be now have the ability to record every statement uttered by humankind and then search, crosscheck, and match it to the selected hate speech criteria in real-time. America has been transformed from being “One nation under God” to one nation under surveillance.
You know the nursery rhyme: “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” You might want to rethink that one…
Why is the mass recording of nearly everything we have spoken in the past several years of our lives such an indispensable jackpot to Satan? What better way to match any word we utter, no matter the context, to whatever pre-defined hate speech or idle threat and thereby condemn us to our lawfully authorized punishment.
It is only inevitable that a certain word here or there contained within your opinion on a particular subject and taken totally out of context will fit one of the many definitions of “discrimination” and “hate speech” predetermined by the anti-discrimination and “human justice” league of the United Nations.
What can any of us do about it you ask? Not much except one important thing: Don’t worry about it. Well ,shouldn’t we watch what we say? Absolutely, however:
“For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison” (James 3:7-8).
And the devil knows it.
God did not say to give up and speak however you please. We know that He commands us to always be kind, loving, and forgiving with our words but the truth is that we all slip up every now and then and when we do, the devil will be there recording.
The devil is infatuated with being just like God. The very Being that Satan hates the most is the very Being that he attempts to copy. The term “pseudo Christ” (Greek pseudokhristos, meaning “false messiah”) is used by Jesus in the gospels (Matthew 24:24, Mark 13:22) to describe the Antichrist.
We are all very aware that we will one day have to give an account to God for every idle word we have ever spoken:
“But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the Day of Judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” (Matthew 12:36-37).
Satan wants to take the place of God and cause you to give an account to him for every idle word you have ever spoken.
Some believe that a genuine opportunity was provided to our forefathers by the Lord to create a country that would eventually be a blessing to the entire earth. Are genuine believers again being presented with such an opportunity today?
America’s forefathers fled their native empire and landed at Plymouth to establish a new and freer destiny. I’m not aware of any continents flowing with milk and honey currently available for us to homestead, are you?
There is a powerful and effective exhortation etched upon the platform of the cadre standing over the pit during Special Forces selection: “Obstacles are things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.”
What is the goal for us genuine believers?
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing” (2 Timothy 4:7-8).
