Government Surveillance Of Christians
It is very likely that the Anti-Christ will have a surveillance system in place to watch those who take the Mark of the Beast. The Anti-Christ is an evil cohort of the Devil who will also probably have a surveillance system in place to track Christians and others who reject his wicked governmental authority.
Modern computer technology is advancing at a fast pace that could provide the Anti-Christ with the tools to monitor all of the people in the world. Privacy is being invaded under the false disguise of safety for the public. Cutting edge surveillance systems are being installed all around the world. Of course, the Devil may provide a surveillance system for the Anti-Christ that is far superior to present-day computer technology.
The internet browser company, Google, is moving at an alarming rate to get surveillance eyes into every smart phone, computer, and anything that connects with computers. Google is purchasing a company called Moodstocks. This purchase will give Google access to software that can be used for image recognition, including facial recognition. Those who are pushing for this invasion into the privacy of people claim that the world will be a safer place with computerized surveillance everywhere. Even the new Windows 10 is automatically giving Microsoft your private information. If you do not turn it off, it will automatically send your information to Microsoft. Even if you turn it off, it may be turned back on by an update from Microsoft. Of course, no one in their right mind wants a criminal to be protected, but we should not be asked to give up all of our privacy to catch terrorists and other law breaking people.
Read the following quote about the dream of the company Moodstocks and the plans of Google:
“‘Ever since we started Moodstocks, our dream has been to give eyes to machines by turning cameras into smart sensors able to make sense of their surroundings,’ the French firm wrote.
Google said it would use this system to help identity pictures so they can be easily found through a search engine.
But the development is likely to stoke privacy fears, as many people are concerned that allowing computers to ‘see’ like humans will one day enable the construction of a surveillance state in which our every move can be monitored by governments, cops or corporations. The news comes just weeks after it was revealed that Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, tapes over his MacBook camera and microphone.” (1)
It appears that an intelligent Jewish person like Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook is fully aware of invasion of our privacy by hidden cameras and microphones in our computers and related technology. Protecting our safety should not come at the cost of law abiding citizens losing their freedom. Invading our privacy without restraint will lead to a world-wide dictatorship!
As some people fear, there will most likely be a world-wide surveillance system in the future to watch and control our every move. We are on a fast track to prepare people for a world dominated by a tyrannical government ruled by the Anti-Christ.
Revelation 13:11 “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”
The tyrannical government of the Anti-Christ will be enforced by the second Beast, also known as the False Prophet. The Devil, also known as the Dragon, has an evil trinity that will include the Anti-Christ and the False Prophet. The Anti-Christ and the False Prophet will rule the world under the authority of their master, the Devil, Revelation 13:11.
Revelation 13:15-17 “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 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: 17 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.”
The False Prophet will give life to the image of the Anti-Christ/Beast. This ungodly image of the Anti-Christ will speak. Modern technology now has computers that watch the public and give them commands to obey the law. The image of the Anti-Christ will cause those who refuse to worship the Anti-Christ to be killed. This may be carried out with machinery like our modern killer drones. It is likely that the killing machines of the Anti-Christ will be more complex, but present-day technology is continually improving, Revelation 13:15.
During the prophesied seven-year Tribulation, everyone will be required by the evil empire of the Anti-Christ to receive the Mark of the Beast in their right hand or in their forehead. Those who refuse to receive the Mark of the Beast will be hunted down by the Anti-Christ’s government. Of course, no Christian will take the Mark of the Beast. It is very possible that surveillance technology will be used to identify Christians and others who refuse to worship the Anti-Christ. Christians will be hunted like they were during the days of the Roman Emperor, Nero, and other wicked Roman Emperors. When Christians are caught, they will be tortured and killed, Revelation 13:16.
The government of the Anti-Christ will control who can buy or sell. Food and other items will not be allowed to be sold to Christians because they will refuse to worship the Anti-Christ. Those Christ rejecting people who choose to worship the Anti-Christ will be identified by the Mark of the Beast, the name of the Beast, or the number of the Beast’s name. Some type of computer system could be used to identify those who are allowed to buy and sell. It is also possible that some type of computer surveillance will be used to identify those who will not be allowed to buy or sell. Very likely it would be the death penalty for those who aid Christians, Revelation 13:17.
Revelation 14:9-11 “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 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.”
An angel of God will warn people of the world not to worship the Anti-Christ or his image. This same angel will warn people not to receive the Mark of the Anti-Christ in their forehead or in their right hand, Revelation 14:9.
We are to honor the government as long as they do not tell us to disobey God. A godly government can be certain that a true Christian will be obedient to Bible based laws.
But, during the prophesied seven-year Tribulation, many ungodly laws will be passed and enforced by the evil government of the Anti-Christ. Those people who choose to obey all of the ungodly laws of the Anti-Christ will face the full wrath of the God of the Bible. Very likely, the Anti-Christ will have a law passed requiring everyone to take his Mark. To receive, the Mark of the Anti-Christ means certain condemnation from God. Once these people receive the Mark of the Anti-Christ they will not have any more opportunity to receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour. After the Great White Throne Judgment, the holy angels of God and Jesus, the Lamb, will be present as these Christ rejecters are tormented in the Lake of Fire Revelation 14:10.
Those people who submit to the government of the Anti-Christ will be tormented forever. In fact, they will have no rest day or night. The false cult of Jehovah’s Witnesses’ teach that when a person dies rejecting God they will be annihilated, ceasing to exist. But, this is false. If they will be annihilated, they could rest. But, there will not be any rest for those who reject Jesus as Saviour. Those who choose to worship the Anti-Christ will be doomed to everlasting punishment in the Lake of Fire.
We should honor the government as long as it is not trying to damn our eternal soul to Hell. The government of the Anti-Christ will have the goal of damning as many people as it can to Hell, Revelation 14:11.
Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
Those who repent and believe on Jesus as their Saviour during the Tribulation period will be judged in the future. Many people will refuse to worship the Anti-Christ during the Tribulation period of seven years. At their judgment, God will reward these believers according to their faithfulness to Him. Rather than worship the Anti-Christ, these people will be beheaded. They will faithfully be a witness of Jesus. They will be obedient to the Word of God. They will reject the ungodly government of the Anti-Christ, Revelation 20:4.
Remember, if you are a true Christian now, you will not be here during the prophesied seven-year Tribulation. A true Christian is a person who has repented of their sins and believed on Jesus as their Saviour. Present day Christians will be taken out just before the Tribulation begins.
We encourage everyone to obey their government as long as that government is not trying to force you to disobey God. According to the book of Daniel, God puts governments in place.
But, most of all we encourage everyone to obey the Bible. The Bible tells us to repent and believe on Jesus as your Saviour. Call on Jesus in prayer today and ask him to save you from the penalty of sin in Hell, followed by the Lake of Fire!
