But we couldn’t possibly afford to build a fence along The world planners have told us that all nations are now our entire 2,000-mile border, the argument goes. interdependent and that we must now think globally. Sure we could! If Israel, a nation of 6 million can build Terms like ‘world community’ and ‘international a 450-mile fence, surely a nation of 300 million can build community’ have easily slipped into the global lexicon. a 2,000-mile fence…unless we don’t want to.

With the onset of globalism and one-worldism, Yes, there is an answer to international terrorism borders have become virtually meaningless. Cultures have that doesn’t require the surrendering of hard-won intermingled, and nations have lost their identities— especially in America. To suggest that the U.S. is a ‘Christian’ nation evokes howls of outrage from certain elements of society. Our Judeo-Christian values have even been banished from government property by the courts. So if we don’t govern a nation and preserve its values with borders, how can it be done? A recent novel idea has emerged around the world. The U.S. government has decided to give everyone a national ID with a number that can be entered into a national (soon to be global) database. Since all Americans already have Social Security numbers, the government has mandated that you must give your Social Security number in order to receive your new national ID. Once we have a national ID card that requires a number, we can be controlled by the use of databases and computers. If our ID is unacceptable, we won’t board an “ freedoms. It’s just happens to be the answer that world leaders don’t want to hear. One-world government (globalization) simply doesn’t work. Globalization has wrecked the backbone of the American economy. It has brought high gas prices and reduced wages. Bring back secure borders and pass a law against a national ID and against the establishment of a national database.

This will happen at the time of the battle of Armageddon according to verse 16 of the same chapter. The battle of Armageddon will be the final battle during which Jesus will return and fight on the side of the nation of Israel. Immediately thereafter He will establish His kingdom and usher in His one-thousand year reign of peace. On January 13, 1990, the Indianapolis Star carried the headline “Turkey Will Cut Off Flow of Euphrates for One Month.” The article stated that a huge reservoir had been built by Turkey. While filling up the reservoir, the flow of the Euphrates would be stopped for one month and a concrete plug for a diversion channel built. These things have now been done. With this newly built dam, Turkey has the ability to stop the Euphrates River at will. The conditions for fulfilling this 1,900-year-old prophecy are now in place. M China Goes to War ü any have stated that In revelatIon 9:15-16, the bIble prophesIes that an army of 200 mIllIon soldiers will launch a war which will kill “the third part of men.” Never in the it is impossible to history of the world until our present generation has there been a power on earth that could field 200 million soldiers. However, the late ruler of China know whether or Mao Tse Tung boasted in his diary that he could field an army of 200 million. The CIA World Factbook reported that in the year 2001 it was estimated that not we are living in the last days China had 200,866,946 men of military age and that this number is growing by 10 million per year. before the Second Coming of Worldwide Numbering System Predicted ü Jesus Christ. However, there is In revelatIon 13, the bIble prophesIes that a world dIctator wIll soon rule over a world government. He will cause all people on the earth to receive dramatic proof that we are living a number without which they will be unable to buy or sell. We are seeing this prophecy fulfilled before our eyes in a most astonishing way. Nearly every in the endtimes — proof that human being in the world has now been assigned a number. In America, it is our Social Security number. In the past few years, we have seen this number defies coincidence. extended to newborns. A child without a Social Security number cannot be declared as a dependent on an income tax return. We have seen the emergence of electronic money, shopping with credit cards, and many people actually urging the abolition of cash. All of these things could not possibly have been fulfilled until this present time. Only after the invention of the computer could such a worldwide numbering system be administered. The Emergence of a New World order ü revelatIon 13:7 and danIel 7:23 prophesy the establIshment of a world government. The term “New World Order” has become a prevalent phrase in the world’s political culture. Mikhail Gorbachev made the term famous, and Pope John Paul II referred to it repeatedly. In the September 12, 1990 issue of the Chicago Tribune, our former president George Bush said, “Iraq is the first test for the New World Order.” He emphatically stated that the Iraq War was Saddam Hussein against the world. The United Nations’ troops are continually referred to as the multi-national forces. The decision has been made to establish an interdependent community of nations that will rule the world under United Nations authority. The Bible says that this will lead us into a great world government. The formation of this government is at hand. Coincidence or Divine Providence? ü Is It coIncIdental that all of these major prophecIes pertaInIng to the last times are being fulfilled simultaneously? Hardly!

  • 9. é COvERSTORYé † iRvin BaxteR jR. † T bible prophesies a time he when individuals will not be able to buy or sell unless they take the ‘mark of the beast.’ Between now and May of 2008, Americans will receive national ID cards without which we will be unable to hold a job or open a bank account. If we cannot hold a job or have a bank account, how much buying or selling will we be able to do? The question has to be asked: “Will the National ID card—which will be implemented over the next two years—be the mark of the beast?” MAY 11, 2005 President George W. a little histoRy Bush signs the REAL For many years, advocates of socialistic big government have ID ACT. promoted the establishment of a national ID card. The American public has steadfastly resisted this encroachment upon individual liberties, not wanting to become a number in the government’s computer. When it created the Department of Homeland Security after 9/11, Congress made it clear in the enabling legislation that the agency could not create a national ID system. In September 2004, AP Photo The White House, Paul Morse, HO then-DHS Secretary Tom Ridge reiterated, “The legislation that created the Department of Homeland Security was very specific on the question of a national ID card. They said there will be no national ID card.” However, when the Homeland Security Commission presented their recommendation for responding to 9/11, there it was… as big as Dallas. On page 407 of the 9/11 Report, it states, “Secure identification should begin in the United States. The federal gov- ernment should set standards for the issuance of birth certificates and sources of identification, such as drivers’ licenses.” Those who have long salivated over imposing a controlled society upon America grabbed the 9/11 baton and ran with it! Knowing that Americans did not want a national ID card, the ‘Big Brother-ites’ decided to pass the National ID Act by stealth. First of all, they called it the Real ID Act, and then attached it to a huge appropriations bill for our troops in Iraq so that no member of Congress would dare vote against it. On May 10, 2005, the bill creating a national ID passed by a vote in the Senate of 100-0. The next day, May 11, 2005, President endtimemagazine | May & June 2006 9

Reader devices hidden in the doors, walls, displays, and floors could frisk the RFID chips in your clothes and other items on your person to determine your age, sex, and preferences.
