THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Hello again folks! In order for something of the magnitude of the 'Mark of
the Beast' [MoB], as revealed in the Word of God, to be implemented; there are
facts [and presumptions] of the time that should be considered :
    1. Mass deception
    2. Mass worship
    3. Mass apostasy
    4. Economic uncertainty
    5. Fear of attack
    6. Abolition of cash
    7. Absolute dependence on credit
    8. Technological advance
    9. Loss of personal freedom
    10. Loss of privacy

Undoubtedly - there are more scenarios that I've listed above. But I think that there in one that is being missed by the 'experts' because it is on one hand so public and on the other hand so stealthy. I read this article the other day [or week!]:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/8148116.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/8191011.stm

What struck me is this. We all know about the so-called 'credit crunch'. How governments [i.e. you and me- the taxpayer] have bailed out 'failing' banks etc. etc. So we have here in the UK; banks returning to the public sector from the private sector. The same is happening with our railways and other public services to a degree. So there is a 'timebomb' in the making. But the above article also suggests that some of us MAY have to forego a sizeable chunk of our pension funds to pay for on own old age care in addition to that which we expect of the NHS. This would vastly reduce the resources of quite a few folks - if implemented.

So we have, as a result of the 'credit crunch' and an aging population, many folks who will be forced to sell their property instead of passing it down to their nearest and dearest. My thought for this day is that we are seeing the gradual erosion of private ownership by the common people; the greater intrusion of government into our [already overtaxed] incomes whilst at the same time the multi-nationals are consolidating. I can see a time in the not-too-distant future when most folks will be credit dependent. And that's why this scripture in Revelation 13, for me, is taking a sinister turn - here and now:

"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." [Book of Unveiling; Chapter 13; Verses 16-17]

Please DO NOT BE DECEIVED! Be Bereans; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... Keith JS ... 08-Aug-2009

Your post makes me think that you might be interested in reading my free e-book Walkabout: The History of a Brief Century. It's a popularisation of the End Times prophesies of the Bible in the form of fiction laced with truth. You can probably also spot some heresy there. I'd be interested in your reaction.

Best,
