has emerged around the world. The U.S. government has
decided to give everyone a national ID with a number that

Since all Americans already have Social Security numbers,
the government has mandated that you must give your Social

Euphrates River to Be Dried Up ü
In revelatIon 16:12, the bIble predIcts that the euphrates rIver wIll be
dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East to invade Israel. 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.

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!

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

board an airplane, train, bus, enter any federal

likely that you will not be able to get a job without it.
