Bar Codes For Homeless in the UK
The problem we’re trying to solve here is that we live in an increasingly cashless society
In the UK a new initiative has been launched called Greater Change, in which QR codes are given to the homeless so they can receive donations from smartphones, as reported by the Telegraph. In Britich Columbia Canada, the homeless are given smart cards by the government. These cards are programmed for which products can be purchased from which stores and when.
Once cash is removed from society, so is a certain amount of the autonomy and privacy of its citizens. We have seen the destruction of what was once thought to be long gone tweats and emails have wraught in peoples lives. Could there be similar dangers once every financial transaction is databased?
This prophecy from Revelation seemed rediculous even a hundred years ago, but suddently doesn’t sound so ridiculous today?
Thus no one was allowed to buy or sell things unless he bore the mark of the beast – that is, his name or his number.
What or who is the beast? The reigning global authority that has set up a global cashless financial system. Simply if someone contravenes the rules and regulations of the governing body, your ability to conduct business can be stopped by removing your mark, code, unique identification number, global security number, what ever you like to call it.
People all over the world today are losing their lively hoods because others say they don’t meet their “values”. You may agree with many of these incidents, but heaven help you when your values eventually are the ones that are in conflict.
How well would any of us do today if our banks decided we didn’t fit their values and chose to cancel our ability to access accounts? And maybe twitter, Facebook and Apple blocked our ability to speak out?
Remember when Wikileaks exposed government corruption in 2010? Visa and MC froze Wikileak accounts and his bank froze his account. Julian Assange was effectively unable to buy or sell.
The mounting legal and political forces working against WikiLeaks just scored two major financial blows against the whistleblower site. On Tuesday morning, Visa suspended payments to WikiLeaks, …And late Monday, MasterCard told Cnet that it would also attempt to block payments to WikiLeaks, arguing that its “rules prohibit customers from directly or indirectly engaging in or facilitating any action that is illegal.”¹
Yes, but some say he is a criminal, but others say he is a hero for exposing government corruption. The point is, the world is getting very close to being able to turn off anyone’s finances for what ever they deem is a crime.
War Against Conservative Views
Peoples lives are being upended because others say they “don’t fit” certain values. Traditional convervative views are now called hate speech. Without a standard of moral values and duties, any society can produce a Hitler or Stallin. All that’s needed is enough people that agree with them.
Today, the “Masters of the Universe” as some call them, Facebook, YouTube, and Apple have shut down and or deleted accounts of the politically right wing organization called “infowars” under the guise of hate speech. Google owned YouTube deleted the InfoWars channel that had 2.4 million subscribers. Twitter initially banned an account that posted a portion of the Constitution of the United States because is was hate speech, but restored it after considerable backlash. If this can happen in a country founded on the freedom of speech, what will the big tech companies do to people in other countries?
UPDATE: InfoWars email provider has just banned the companies communications.
According to the Gateway Pundit, Conservative accounts on Facebook have seen a 93% drop in traffic since the 2016 elections due to new algorythem software installed to
combat hate”. Several Conservative political candidates have recently had their content blocked on Facebook because they didn’t meet the flatforms values. Most recently Elizabeth Heng’s campaign video ad about communist crimes that led her family to flee Cambodia for the U.S
“shocking, disrespectful, or sensational”
Meanwhile, a recent hire as a New York Times editor Sarah Jeong, who has numerous vulgar and racist twitter posts calling for the death of white people and police, is being promoted and supported, even being calledher “fab” by @NYTimesPR.
In America, it is now hate speech to support the leader of the country, or have a border, or voice conservative ideas, and few are complaining. It may not be long before simply preaching the bible could be criminally actionable. I can see a day when blogs like this one will be removed because the subject matter is just too offensive.
America as a nation is turning its back on the God of the bible. Historically, nations who kick God out, ultimately end in tyranny.
The bible says there is a day coming when a global system will emerge and anyone who does not abide by the dictates of the authorities, will be unable to access their funds, and with American Polictal party’s showing signs of N. Korean dictatorial attitudes, it could be closer than anyone thinks.
Society is not evolving, it is devolving back to the days of Sodom and Gomorrah where all sorts of debauchery was not only tolerated, but celebrated and expected from every citizen.
This global tyrancial prophecy the bible speaks of could be in 20 years or 200 years, God only knows, but even if you don’t believe it will happen, any rational person can see how logistically it could happen. The bible says there is a day when Jesus is coming back will be sudden and without warning (other than the bible’s).
The Day of the Lord coming suddenly isn’t necessarily just the day he physically returns to get his church, it can also mean a sudden heart attack, fatal accident or stroke. Suddenly you are in the presence of the Lord, and at that time it will be too late to change your circumstances.
Hebrews 9:27-28; And just as people are appointed to die once, and then to face judgment, so also, after Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many, to those who eagerly await him he will appear a second time, not to bear sin but to bring salvation.
You can be ready!
Revelation 16:15; (Look! I will come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays alert
1 Thessalonians 5:2-3; For you know quite well that the day of the Lord’s return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night. When people are saying, “Everything is peaceful and secure,” then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman’s labor pains begin. And there will be no escape…
5:6-10; So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded. Night is the time when people sleep and drinkers get drunk. But let us who live in the light be clearheaded, protected by the armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation.
For God chose to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us. Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when he returns, we can live with him forever.
