Government Repression Control

The Great Reset is placing the world under control of invisible bureaucrats. ‘And POWER was ‘GIVEN’ him [Beast, Antichrist] over ‘ALL’  kindreds, and tongues, and NATIONS.’ The Dragon/Satan ‘creates’ the One-World Government and ‘GIVES’ it to the Antichrist to Rule. The Beast / Antichrist does not create it, Satan creates it … to Deceive Man’kind.

Ezekiel 33:2-6

“”When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman,

3, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people,

4, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head.

5, He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life.

6, But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman”s hand.” (Ezekiel 33:2-6)

Revelation 19:20 

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Revelation 14:11

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Pastor Mike Taylor;

Each of us are watchmen on the wall. If you stand behind a pulpit or preach to a congregation in whatever media you use, you have a responsibility to warn those who are in danger of hell fire and all that it represents. God does not send anyone to hell, as it is a decision that each of us must make, but the Word of God must start with men and women who are commissioned by God to take the Word of Truth to those who are in their sins.

Whether a minister believes he is a watchman or not, he is commissioned by God to spread the Gospel to the lost. He is to preach the penalty of sin. He is to abandon a feel good “gospel”, prosperity gospel, or a social speech of humanism and being just a “good citizen”. This won’t save anyone. It will not warn those who are walking the wide road and gate to destruction, but will only placate them that they are OK…they are not OK, as they do not have Jesus in their hearts. It is a minister’s job to take the message of salvation to his congregation, his community and the rest of the world.

Prepping for ‘Mr. Fix-It’

 Society is being prepped for the Antichrist, and as prophecy-loving believers try to warn, the words are falling on a lot of deaf ears.

 The stage is being set for a closing act. The players are getting into their proper positions. Heads of state are meeting to plot and scheme and deny even more rights. In places like Australia, Lithuania, and Austria, good people are enemies of the state even though they are upstanding citizens.

 World leaders have no comprehension they are majoring in minors. To them, it makes perfect sense to obsess over carbon emissions. During the Tribulation, this will fade from their memories as they cope with Seals and Trumpets and Bowls. These will spark “climate change” they cannot imagine!

 Most receiving this newsletter are “watchmen.” Ezekiel 33 tells us that if you don’t warn, the blood is on your hands, so you cannot be silent.

 Brace yourself to be shocked daily by things you read and watch. Satan is getting more active, and wickedness is rising, so God’s people must shine more brightly.

 But for the believer, a glorious event will happen soon. It is known as the Rapture of the Church. It is any day. Any hour. Any minute. So don’t grow weary!

 And yes, if a believer is a Rapture skeptic, they get the surprise of their life someday soon. Then you’ll have the privilege of saying, “I told you so.”

 Won’t that be a glorious day?

Pastor Greg Laurie; Harvest Ministries

“God promises this in the book of Revelation, and He also gives us a promise of global peace. The Antichrist, however, will bring pseudo peace. During the first three-and-a-half years of the seven-year Tribulation, he will come across as a good guy. But in reality, he will be a bad guy. And the Scriptures say that he will use peace to deceive many. Ultimately, once Antichrist is taken out of the way, God will bring global peace.”

WHO is the Abraham Accords ‘Confirmer,’ the BEAST, the Eighth (8th) King, the ‘ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT LEADER’, the FIRST RIDER OF THE APOCALYPSE who goes to Perdition (Utter Destruction), The LAST CAESAR, PHARAOH or ANTICHRIST?

Revelation 13:2-4

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon [Satan, Allah, Prince of the Power of the Air] which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast [Antichrist, Man-by-Satan ‘MbS’], saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (Emphasis mine. Discernment mine.)

Five (5) references to ‘beast.’ 5 denotes satanic influence over evil men.

Jesus Identified the Sign of the Antichrist: He is NOT Macron, Biden, Obama, Trump, Putin, Jinping, Gates, Pope Francis or Klaus Schwab. The ‘Beast’ has been identified NOW, and his role changes to the Antichrist 3.5 years into the Tribulation.

Revelation 17:8-11 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

‘Seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.’ = NEOM Babylon sits on the seven (7) tallest mountains in the Midian Mountain range in the Tabuk region of Saudi Arabia. Tallest mountain is Mount Sinai. These mountains are scarlet and purple colored due to volcanic origin and related minerals deposited in rock. NEOM is a $500 (5) billion technological/hedonistic paradise. No mention or acceptance of Christ.

The seven and eight kings are in reference to the genetic lineage (bottomless pit of evil) of the House of Saud. These are ALL the modern kings since the foundation of modern Saudi Arabia.

The Great Reset is placing the world under control of invisible bureaucrats. ‘And POWER was ‘GIVEN’ him [Beast, Antichrist] over ‘ALL’  kindreds, and tongues, and NATIONS.’ The Dragon/Satan ‘creates’ the One-World Government and ‘GIVES’ it to the Antichrist to Rule. The Beast / Antichrist does not create it, Satan creates it … to Deceive Man’kind.

Technocracy smothers democratic deliberation by removing most decision-making about essential policies from the people to an expert class, whose decisions are based on their education and experience, and the data they think matter.

Wesley J. Smith Fri Jan 14, 2022 – 1:07 pm EST

(Technocracy) – Pro-life advocacy and policies are implacably opposed by the elites of the West. The United Nations promotes abortion access as an international norm. Leaders of the European Union continually criticize and attempt to stifle prolife laws in Poland and Hungary. (1)

All of the world’s most influential medical journals — the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association, the British Medical Journal, etc. — take the propriety of abortion as a matter of basic patient rights, with some now moving on to endorse assisted suicide. (2) And, of course, virtually all mainstream media oppose sanctity-of-life advocacy as a matter of course.

Despite these wailing headwinds, the pro-life movement has exercised the freedoms available in the West internationally to contest anti-sanctity-of-life orthodoxies and policies in the public square and halls of government — battling not only abortion, but also legalization of euthanasia/assisted suicide, the moral propriety of embryonic stem cell research and other biotechnologies, threats to medical conscience, and the like. But come the “technocracy,” a time may arise in which “no advocacy zones” hinder sanctity-of-life activists from presenting contrary ideas to the general community and enacting public policies through the usual democratic processes.

The danger of technocracy

What do I mean by “technocracy?” In essence, the word translates into “rule by experts.” But in its currently gestating iteration, it means much more than that. The looming technocracy threatens to impose substantial control over most important aspects of life by “experts”—scientists, bioethicists, and societal “influencers”—but it also poses the threat of iron-clad enforcement of cultural orthodoxies and policies, not only in law, but also via the voluntary actions of powerful segments of the private sector. (NWN; Satan, the Great Dragon, ‘creates’ the ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT and GIVES it to him (Beast, Antichrist, Prince, Confirmer, 8th King, Son of Perdition, Man of Sin, Man of Lawlessness, the ‘Wicked One,’ Man-by-Satan ‘MbS.’)

‘… and the dragon ‘GAVE’ him (beast, antichrist) his power, and his seat, and great authority.’

Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and POWER was ‘GIVEN’ him (beast, antichrist) over ALL kindreds, and tongues, and NATIONS.

Technocracy is a soft authoritarianism. It establishes no gulags to imprison dissenters and pronounces no tyrannous executions to punish the rebellious. Instead, a technocracy smothers democratic deliberation by removing most decision-making about essential policies from the people (through their elected representatives) to an expert class whose decisions are based on their education and experience, and the data they think matter.

In other words, rather than laws passed by representatives of the people, regulations are imposed by bureaucrats based on technocratic opinion and advice. As author John H. Evans wrote several years ago:

The first characteristic of technocracy . . . is a “deep seated animosity toward politics itself” and toward the public ability to make decisions. But it is not just that with technocracy, experts will rule. The second and more important characteristic of technocracy is that expert rule is justified by making policy decisions seem to be only about facts, which are fixed; not values which vary from group to group. This is accomplished by removing debates about values in politics and making political decisions solely about selecting the most efficacious means for forwarding taken-for-granted values. (3)

How did we get to the point where experts threaten to take effective control of society? Blame the COVID crisis, which unleashed a boldness in the would-be technocratic class and at the same time, engendered timidity among people who want to be safe (NWN; aka ‘Sheeple’). Globalists have seized the unique moment to increase their power on an unprecedented international scale. As Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), explained, the pandemic’s “silver lining” was to demonstrate “how quickly we can make radical changes to our lifestyles.” (4)

To encourage even greater public subservience, the WEF launched the “Great Reset Initiative” with the goal of universally “revamping all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions” with “every industry, from oil and gas to tech, transformed.”

The Great Reset seeks to re-order economics on a worldwide scale by imposing new technocratic imperatives as a means of combatting climate change. More relevantly to the topic of this article, Dr. Anthony Fauci audaciously declared that combating future infectious disease requires the mindboggling task of “rebuilding the infrastructures of human existence” by empowering international organizations such as the United Nations and the World Health Organization to impose the “radical changes” he thinks are required. (5)

That means, according to Fauci and his co-author David M. Morens, that virtually everything in society will have to be transformed, “from cities to homes to workplaces, to water and sewer systems, to recreational and gatherings venues.”

The scope and breadth of their ambition is stunningly hubristic. “In such a transformation,” they write, “we will need to prioritize changes in those human behaviors that constitute risks for the emergence of infectious diseases. Chief among them are reducing crowding at home, work, and in public places as well as minimizing environmental perturbations such as deforestation, intense urbanization, and intensive animal farming.”

Think about what all of that would take! At the very least, the gargantuan task would require unprecedented and intrusive government regulations and the transferring of policy control from the national to international level — nothing less than an international technocratic and authoritarian supra-governing system with the power to direct how we interact with each other as family, friends, and in community. Anyone who thinks that such overarching power would long be limited to fighting climate change or building defenses against future pandemics doesn’t understand human nature and the seductive nature of power. (NWN; aka ‘ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT’ LEAD BY THE BEAST / ANTICHRIST.)

Technocracy and the life issues

In a technocracy, when it comes to issues that prolifers care most about — i.e., policies such as abortion and assisted suicide that impact the sanctity of human life — bioethicists would likely be the most influential “experts” relied upon to influence public policy. This raises two questions: What is bioethics and who are bioethicists? (6)

Bioethics is a contraction of “biomedical ethics.” It is a discipline made up mostly of an elite group of academic moral philosophers, doctors, lawyers, theologians, and other members of the medical intelligentsia who dedicate themselves to bending public and professional discourse about medical ethics and the broader issues of health care public policy to fit their ideological desires. Unless a bioethicist has a modifier such as “Catholic” or “conservative” before the term, bioethicists are generally hostile to the traditional sanctity-of life moral values and ethical traditions that prolifers tend to embrace.

Whereas medical ethics focuses on the behavior of doctors in their professional lives vis-à-vis their patients, bioethics has a broader focus, concentrating on the relationship between medicine, health, and society. This last element allows bioethicists to presume a moral expertise of breathtaking ambition and hubris. (NWN; False Pope / Prophet says “Getting Vaccinated is the MORAL thing to do.”) Many view themselves, quite literally, as the forgers of “the framework for moral judgment and decision making” (7) who will create “the moral principles” that determine how “we are to live and act,” drawing on a “wisdom” they perceive as “specially appropriate to the medical sciences and medical arts.” (8)

False Prophet (The WORLD’S Greatest Social ‘Influencer’). ‘Go ahead, get the jab, it is good for you, it is good for humanity, it is the ‘moral’ thing to do.’

Revelation 13:16-17 And he [false prophet, pope, pontiff] causeth ALL, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a [‘subdermal, infrared, vaccination, smart’] mark IN their right hand, or IN their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the [‘subdermal, infrared, vaccination, smart’] mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Emphasis mine. Discernment mine.)

Revelation 19:20 

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he [false prophet, pope, pontiff] DECEIVED THEM that had received the [‘subdermal, infrared, vaccination, smart’] mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. (Emphasis mine. Discernment mine.)

Revelation 14:11

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Indeed, some claim that “bioethics goes beyond the codes of ethics of the various professional practices concerned. It implies new thinking on changes in society, or even global equilibria” (9) In other words, technocracy.

The danger technocracy poses to ethical medicine

Bioethics technocrats don’t believe in the Hippocratic Oath. As the late Dr. Sherwin Nuland sniffed in the New England Journal of Medicine writing in favor of legalizing euthanasia:

Those who turn to the oath in an effort to shape or legitimize their ethical viewpoints must realize that the statement has been embraced over approximately the past 200 years far more as a symbol of professional cohesion than for its content. Its pithy sentences cannot be used as all-encompassing maxims to avoid the personal responsibility inherent in the practice of medicine. Ultimately, a physician’s conduct at the bedside is a matter of individual conscience.

What a frightening thought. When I tell audiences that only about 13 percent of physicians take the Hippocratic Oath — if that — invariably they respond with loud, shocked gasps of alarm. Patients believe that doctors have certain ironclad professional obligations to patients that cannot be violated regardless of a physician’s individual beliefs.

Indeed, patients rightly view the Hippocratic Oath as one of their primary defenses against the overwhelming power over our vulnerable lives that we, of necessity, place in the hands of our doctors. This obligation is summarized by the Hippocratic principle that a doctor “do no harm” to a patient—even if the patient may wish otherwise.

But that is not how most bioethicists see it. Rather, the most influential among them adhere more toward a “quality of life” utilitarian approach in which some lives count for more or are perceived as having a greater claim to legal protection than others. Here is the problem: Quality-of-life considerations are fine when they are a factor in medical decision-making — that is, does the patient think the potential harmful effects of a proposed treatment are worth risking to attain the health benefit sought. But it becomes a form of bigotry when the judged quality of a patient’s life becomes a determinate of his or her moral worth.

When applied in this manner, it is often called the “quality of life ethic.” In this view, a person needs to earn his or her value by possessing identified capabilities (aka, the Beast’s ‘MARK’, name or number) and characteristics. The Princeton bioethicist Peter Singer explains in Rethinking Life and Death:

We should treat human beings in accordance with their ethically relevant characteristics. Some of these are inherent in the nature of being. They include consciousness, the capacity for physical, social, and mental interaction with other beings, having conscious preferences for continued life, and having enjoyable experiences. Other relevant aspects depend on the relationship of the being to others, having relatives for example who will grieve over your death, or being so situated in a group that if you are killed, others will fear for their own lives. All of these things make a difference to the regard and respect we should have for such a being. (11)

The danger of Singer’s approach should be obvious to every reader. The standards Singer uses to measure human worth are his standards based on what he considers important and “relevant.” And therein lies the heart of the problem. Subjective notions of human worth, in the end, are about raw power and who gets to do the judging.

Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world

In our not-so-distant past, for example, decisions denigrating the moral worth of a subset of people, i.e., blacks, were made to justify their oppression and exploitation based on the allegedly relevant characteristics of skin color and cultural stereotypes. The quality-of-life ethic is no different — only the “relevant characteristics” have changed, not the wrongness of the approach. Quality of life, as a moral measure, strips worth and dignity from people based on health or disability, just as surely as racism does based on skin pigment, hair texture, or eye shape.(12)

Okay, Wesley. I understand the theoretical peril. But how might that play out in the real world if bioethicists were empowered in a technocracy to set healthcare policy? I am glad you asked. Here are just a few potential examples:

False Prophet (The WORLD’S Greatest Social ‘Influencer’). ‘Go ahead, get the jab, it is good for you, it is good for humanity, it is the ‘moral’ thing to do.’

Revelation 13:16-17 And he [false prophet, pope, pontiff] causeth ALL, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a [‘subdermal, infrared, vaccination, smart’] mark IN their right hand, or IN their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the [‘subdermal, infrared, vaccination, smart’] mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Emphasis mine. Discernment mine.)

Revelation 19:20 

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he [false prophet, pope, pontiff] DECEIVED THEM that had received the [‘subdermal, infrared, vaccination, smart’] mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. (Emphasis mine. Discernment mine.)

Abortion through the Ninth Month: Mainstream bioethicists don’t only believe that abortion should be legal, they view it as a positive right to which every pregnant woman is morally entitled if that is her desire. That means erasing all limitations on abortion as to time and method.

New York has already enacted such a law. As described by Richard Doerflinger in the Catholic Standard:

It expands legal abortions from 24 weeks of pregnancy up to birth, for reasons of “health” (which in the abortion context means emotional and social “well-being,” a recipe for abortion on demand). It allows “health care practitioners” other than physicians to perform them.

It also repeals 10 provisions of New York law. Among them: A provision specifying that abortion is legal only with the woman’s consent; a law allowing a manslaughter charge against an abortionist who causes the woman’s death during an abortion; a law discouraging self-induced (which Miller calls “self-managed”) abortions; a law requiring care for a child born alive during an attempted late-term abortion; a law against providing someone else with a drug or other instrument for the purpose of “unlawfully procuring the miscarriage of a female.” (13)

In a technocracy, such pro-abortion policies could be expected to be imposed on an international scale. (NWN; ‘aiding and abetting the rise of the beast system’ Bill Gates / Bill Gates Foundation + ‘He Who Forgot God and Fell Asleep’).

Legal Assisted Suicide/Euthanasia: Legalizing euthanasia and assisted suicide is the default setting in mainstream bioethics, with most prominent practitioners supporting what they euphemistically call “aid in dying.” There are exceptions, of course. Ironically, despite his opposition to sanctity-of-life ethics, Ezekiel Emanuel — one of the country’s most influential bioethicists and a leading adviser to President Joe Biden — opposes legalizing assisted suicide. (More on Emanuel’s views below.)

Healthcare Rationing: Most bioethicists also support healthcare rationing. Such a policy could take several forms. For example, “futile care” in which hospital bioethics committees are empowered to force patients off wanted life-extending treatment based on quality-of-life judgmentalism. (14) Futile care is more or less ad hoc rationing. Many bioethicists would prefer formal rationing, such as the “quality adjusted life year” (QALY) system in which access to a given treatment is allowed or denied based on quality-of-life formulas established by healthcare bureaucrats. (15)

Destruction of Medical Conscience: Increasingly, bioethicists advocate that access to abortion or assisted suicide become an enforceable right. This is a giant step beyond what I call “mere legalization,” because it would require the government to guarantee access—which in practical terms, would mean legally coercing healthcare professionals to be complicit even if it violated their religious beliefs or moral consciences. That would mean enacting laws and ethical rules requiring doctors and other healthcare professionals to either do the deed upon request or procure another professional the original doctor knows will abort, euthanize, etc.— sometimes called an “effective referral.”

The attack on medical conscience has already commenced. Emanuel wrote in favor of such coercion in the New England Journal of Medicine. (16) The Australian state of Victoria requires such participation in abortion and has sanctioned at least one doctor for refusing to participate in a sex-selection abortion. (17)

Coerced participation in all legal medical procedures — specifically including abortion and euthanasia — is required by medical ethical rules in Ontario, Canada, upheld by a Court of Appeals ruling. (18) (A desired side effect of such policies from the technocrats’ perspective would be the forcing of pro-life doctors, nurses, and pharmacists out of their professions.)

The danger to the freedom of association and thought

Of late, I have become worried that a technocracy in the West will adopt many of the social control strategies deployed by the Chinese Communist Party (aka ‘Social Credit Score’) to enforce conformity among the people of China. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t believe that a technocratic authoritarianism will put dissenters in camps or engage in violent suppression of heterodox ideas (NWN; aka ‘those who were BEHEADED for their witness of Jesus’). But I do believe we could witness a form of private sector-enforced social excommunication of those who don’t adhere to “acceptable” ideas (NWN; ‘those who REFUSE to get the Beast’s vaccination ‘mark’ – no buying/selling.) or propose what will be defined as discriminatory — meaning pro-life — policies.

The rough model would be the “social credit” system being constructed in Communist China. Here’s how that pernicious tyranny is planned to operate once it goes fully online. Deploying powerful cutting-edge computer technologies such as facial recognition, artificial intelligence, and GPS, the government monitors the individual behaviors and associations of the Chinese people — rewarding those who are socially compliant and punishing those who engage in disfavored “anti-social” activities — in particular, Christians or other religious believers. (19) Computer algorithms analyze the compiled data and compute the “social scores” of each Chinese citizen.

The social credit system could become the most effective means of social control ever devised by using one’s “score” to reward compliance or punish resistance. Benefits of a high social credit can include lowered rent. But the consequences of low score are draconian — including job loss, the inability to rent housing, even blackballing from riding the downtown bus. But it gets worse. (NWN; aka ‘BEHEADING Christians who refuse the antichrist and his mark.)

The social “sins” of the parents are borne by the children. A child may be kicked out of university and stripped of his or her own ability to work, which in turn, could destroy the child’s future, for example, making him or her unable to find a spouse or participate in a community’s social groups. It is one thing to accept the consequences of living out one’s personal beliefs, but it could be quite another to see one’s children’s lives ruined as a consequence of one’s own actions.

I do not expect governments in the West to act so despotically. The Constitution would forbid it here, to be sure. But I am worried that a less stringent form of technocratic-implemented private-sector-enforced social control could be wielded by “woke” major corporations to isolate and marginalize socially conservative individuals and groups who resist reigning political orthodoxies.

Hear me out. What if the private sector began enforcing technocrat-imposed utilitarian and quality-of-life orthodoxies promulgated by a bioethical technocracy? (NWN; The False Prophet / Pope CAUSES / DECIVES ALL to get the Beast’s MARK, in order to buy and sell). We don’t have to wonder. It has started happening already with what is often called “cancel culture.” (20)

When Indiana enacted a Religious Freedom Restoration Act to protect the free exercise of religion in the state, some of the world’s most powerful corporations threatened boycotts against the state until lawmakers modified the law. (21) Ditto when North Carolina passed a “bathroom bill” that required people to use public restrooms consistent with their biological sex. (22)

More recently, we have seen the suppression of heterodox ideas on university campuses. Try accepting an invitation to speak on a secular university campus if you are a well-known pro-life advocate. Chances are that campus progressives will mount angry protests leading the administration to cancel the invitation.

Or post a YouTube video that cuts against the orthodox grain on issues of interest to pro-lifers. Not only will the video likely be taken down, but the tech companies will prevent a sponsoring organization from monetizing their perspectives. (23)

Things could get worse. We already see financial institutions pressured not to do business with disfavored industries, such as gun manufacturers or retailers. (24) What if banks were similarly pressured successfully not to do business with “bigoted” groups that advocate restricting “reproductive freedoms” or that resist transgender advocacy agendas or other socially correct agendas? Not only could it happen, but it is already happening. Look what almost occurred to the Colorado baker who refused to create a cake to celebrate a same-sex wedding. It took a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to save him from ruin. (25)

Conclusion

This much is certain. As the international technocracy increases in power and influence — ranging from imposing mandatory COVID policies, to adopting utilitarian views on bioethical issues, to stifling communication of heterodox opinions and perspectives — pro-lifers could find it more challenging than ever to “make their case.”

But that doesn’t mean we should surrender democratic principles to rule by experts. Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, the great Soviet dissident, wrote relevantly to our current moment, “Should one point out that from ancient times declining courage has been considered the beginning of the end?” Technocracy of the type described above can only succeed when imposed upon a cowardly (aka ‘Sheeple’) people. If the pro-life movement has proved anything, it is that its activists are not cowards.

Of course, this does not mean acting recklessly or lashing out in ways that are antithetical to the norms of advocacy in a free society. But in this brewing crisis, let us not shrink from living fully as free men and women despite the potential costs — and that includes resisting the imposition of an international rule by experts. Because if ever such an authoritarianism establishes its grip, it will be almost impossible to reverse.

8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028-3028).

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “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).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
