The Beast Government System’s Big Leap Forward
Up until now, the 9/11 terrorist attacks stood as the most destructive threat to our personal liberties. The reaction to the coronavirus has turned into a far greater power grab.
The Federal Reserve is handing out trillions of dollars to any business and organization that claims to have a need for money. All these loans will lead to monetary enslavement.
The $2.2 trillion bill just passed by congress has a section that allows the Fed to leverage $500 billion into $5 trillion. It will buy debt from the corporate market or extend loans to businesses large and small. Because the Fed will be at zero risk of any losses on these loans, it will quickly control the whole debt market, effectively becoming a Central Federal Bank.
Any time a massive organization becomes in control of money, political corruption naturally follows. A pet project may get funded by the Fed just because a Senator voted to get a certain person onto the Board of Governors. By holding the debt of corporations, the fed can control the operations of the business. When a business fails, the bond holds take control of the corporation.
The Fed has created a number of facilities that have little or no oversight. The Federal Reserve last Tuesday announced the establishment of a “temporary” repurchase agreement facility for foreign and international monetary authorities (FIMA Repo Facility). This outfit hands out dollars to foreign banks; so much for Congress’ sole authority in controlling government spending. Because the Fed now controls a vast amount of the US business world, it is perfectly set up for what will become the Beast government system.
The free money handout from the stimulus package will turn millions of Americans into welfare addicts. In some cases, people will receive checks that are higher than their current salary. After sitting on their couch for six weeks watching Netflix, they will demand that Congress authorizes another $2 trillion because it’s still too dangerous to go back to work.
It frustrates me that Chinese leaders have been able to maintain the lie that they have contained the coronavirus. The demonic liberal media have taken China’s side so they can promote the message: If you want to control the virus, you need to turn your nation into a police state.
The truth is slowly getting out. People in China have posted videos of Long Lines in a Wuhan Cemetery. The Chinese investigative outlet Caixin revealed that when mortuaries opened back up last week, photos revealed a far greater number of urns than reported deaths. In one, a truck loaded with 2,500 urns can be seen arriving to the Hankou Mortuary. According to the report, the driver said he had delivered the same amount the previous day.
I can understand the need to close the kissing both at the country fair, and the prevention of the gathering of large groups because of the pandemic. The mad lust for power in situations that don’t cause medical risks, shows the Orwellian mentality that is sweeping over America. The actions by many State and local officials needs to be called out.
Ten people decide to have a church service at Friendship Baptist Church in Northeast Baltimore, and they were following guidelines on assembly. About nine police officers showed up in five patrol cars right in the middle of the service. Security stopped the police officers at the door of the church and told them they could not come into the church.
Rev. Alvin Gwynn dismissed the church members and talked to the head Sgt.
“I said why are you here. He said did you read the Governor’s Order? I said I know the Governor’s order. It says ten people or less, I have ten people or less, and I have ten people, so tell me why are you here,” Rev. Gwynn explained.
When he asked officers to explain why they were there, Gwynn said, they looked “bewildered,” declined to answer, and called a superior.
“Why the government is so insistent on closing the church down on Sundays, restricting worship, restricting the size of the gathering in the church is totally against the first amendment of our constitution, which says congress make no law prohibiting the free worship exercise of peaceful assembly of people in the United States that include the church,” said Rev. Gwynn.
Several cities in Texas have told gun stores to close down. Luckily, Texas is still a state with some sanity. The Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a letter warning city and county officials that they did not have the authority to shut down gun shops in Texas over the coronavirus pandemic. He said, local authorities do have the right to regulate the use of firearms, but that does not extend to the sale or transfer of firearms.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is threatening to permanently close churches and synagogues that do not comply with his order to stop gathering during the coronavirus outbreak. He didn’t have any problem with abortion rights protestors having a large gathering.
When I was a young Christian, the description of the mark of the Beast often had a comical nature. I remember one book showing people walking around with 666 on their foreheads. Today, we have the technology to implement a global financial system. We now also have a world crazy enough to cut your head off for not taking the Beast number. I thank God that the Church will soon escape this dreadful dilemma.
“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: 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. 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” (Rev 13:16-18).
End-times Storm Steering Mechanism
Hurricane season brings the phenomenon known as a “steering mechanism.” I’m no meteorologist, of course, but know enough to understand that, in the United States, winds aloft blowing from west to east have an effect on hurricanes approaching our mainland from the Atlantic.
These winds can “steer” those massive storm systems away from the continent and back into the Atlantic. This is usually the case.
News media play these things for all they’re worth. They, with wind-blown reporters standing with their microphones on the shoreline, paint the worst-case scenarios each time there is a huge hurricane being generated by warm Atlantic waters as the storm heads eastward from the Horn of Africa or somewhere over that way. More often than not, then, the storm has less effect on our coasts than anticipated. The steering mechanism—these winds aloft—have done their job and lessened the severity of the hurricanes.
However, sometimes these steering currents can force storms up the coast. They then do severe damage to places in more northern latitudes rather than on the lower coastal areas where they initially were expected to make an impact.
It seems we are now in the middle of the most severe moments of an end-times storm. This isn’t the case, however. We are in the process of watching the Tribulation storm out in the proverbial roaring sea as it threatens to land full-force.
The full-blown hurricane will come. Bible prophecy makes that forecast abundantly clear.
But there are winds aloft, so to speak. They are the steering mechanism that will determine when the storm will become full-blown and where it will make its full impact upon the generation that will endure the storm and all the wrath its power will generate.
I think we can look at COVID-19, or coronavirus, if you prefer, as a major steering mechanism in this end of the Church Age. It is like that powerful wind aloft in meteorological terms, shaping things to come not only for America, but for the entire world.
One example of the way this pandemic is steering the great, incoming Tribulation storm is its movement being used by the globalists who are attempting to force America and the world into the model the globalists elite have been trying their best to bring about.
A news excerpt or two perhaps will illustrate.
A Rockefeller Foundation report produced 10 years ago imagined a viral pandemic as the perfect catalyst to implement “tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian leadership,” eerily similar to what’s unfolding during the current coronavirus outbreak.
The report, entitled, “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development,” outlines several possible future global scenarios, including a “Lock Step” vision in which a “new influenza strain…infects nearly 20 percent of the global population…killing 8 million in just seven months…”
“In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit,” the scenario begins. “Unlike 2009’s H1N1, this new influenza strain—originating from wild geese—was extremely virulent and deadly.”
“The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains,” the scenario continues, describing almost the exact events of 2020 in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.” (“Globalist Think Tank Laid Out Scenario Where Virus Outbreak Prompts Authoritarian Crackdown,” Rapture Ready News, March28, 2020)
Another news item further illustrates the effects the pandemic-steering mechanism is having in this present hour, eight years after the Rockefeller Foundation Report’s scenario for their globalist ambitions.
The United Kingdom’s former Prime Minister Gordon Brown has called on world leaders to form a “temporary” global government to resolve both the medical and economic crises caused by the coronavirus pandemic reports the Guardian.
The ex-Labour prime minister stressed the need for a task force comprised of world leaders, health experts as well as leaders of the international organizations that could enjoy executive powers to execute the response.
A virtual meeting of the G-20 group of both developed and developing countries, chaired by Saudi Arabia, is scheduled to take place on Thursday. Brown lamented that the meeting didn’t include the UN security council. “This is not something that can be dealt with in one country,” he said. “There has to be a coordinated global response.” (David Sidman, “Ex British Prime Minister Calls on World Leaders to Form ‘One World Government’,” Breaking Israel News, March 26, 2020)
Yet another excerpt of today’s news even more dramatically illustrates the steering mechanism’s effects. It is a more profound example of the supernaturally generated winds aloft, I propose, because God’s prophetic time clock, the nation Israel, is directly in the path of the incoming, apocalyptic storm.
[Israel’s Prime Minister] Netanyahu put out a direct public appeal while dealing with an escalating coronavirus crisis on Tuesday, saying, “Benny Gantz, this is a moment which tests leadership and national responsibility. The citizens of Israel need a unity government that will work to save their lives and their livelihoods. This is not the time for a fourth election. We both know that the gaps between us are small, and we can overcome them. Let’s meet now and establish a unity government. I am waiting for you.” (Dov Lipman, “Unity Government Formed: Netanyahu Stays in Charge…For a Half Term,” Breaking Israel News, March 27, 2020)
The prime minister, in addressing the Israeli people, urged all to stay home, because, he said, “one who infects one person is akin to infecting the whole world.”
He said he doesn’t know when the pandemic will end. He reminded the people, however, that during past plagues, the Jews were stuck in exile. He said:
The coronavirus joins the family of other deadly plagues throughout history—the Black Plague, cholera, and the Spanish flu. When those plagues ran their course in previous centuries, we (the Jews) didn’t have a state. But today we do have a state.
He encouraged his audience by saying, “This gives us unlimited options to control our destiny,” adding, “we are one people, one country and now is the time for unity.”
[The Jewish] month of Nisan that begins tonight is the month of spring and of exodus from Egypt. It reminds us that our nation withstood intense storms. It gives us strength. It gives us hope. We overcame Pharaoh. And although the battle is difficult and challenging, we will overcome the coronavirus with God’s help and with your help, people of Israel.
Benjamin Netanyahu is correct; with God’s help, the Jewish people—a remnant—will get past the storm to come. The storm the Israeli prime minister seems to anticipate isn’t yet here. It will be horrific, to be sure. The steering mechanism—the strange, supernatural winds that are blowing—are shaping things prophetically, precisely as God’s Word has foretold.
If you know Jesus Christ as your Savior, you won’t experience the most terrible storm ever to rage upon this fallen planet. Again, the following is the prescription that will protect you from the Tribulation pandemic storm to come:
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10: 9–10)
