Big Brother isn’t just watching you – he’s listening, collecting data and monitoring everything about you
The 666 Surveillance System
Revelation 13:16-18 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. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666).
Introduction (Please read this if it is your first time with this section. It continues to a full teaching article.)
There is not a more spine-chilling chapter in the entire Bible than Revelation chapter 13. This chapter describes the rise to power of a demoniacally inspired world dictator, similar in nature to Adolph Hitler. He is called “the Beast”, but better known as the Anti-Christ. He uses a world financial system to control the people, as no one can buy or sell unless they are linked by a mark with the number 666 to this system. Thus this mark in the body is known as the “Mark of the Beast.” (Continued see: The 666 Surveillance System)
Although the Bible limits the “Mark” to economics, the current rapid advancement of technology shows that it is going beyond economics to a total world-wide surveillance system; thus, the “666 Surveillance System.” The Bible states that once a person receives the 666 Mark, he is locked into it and cannot escape. This person is eternally doomed. I believe that part of this system is mind-control. Once a person joins, the mind is seared and cannot escape; thus, the perfect “man/mouse trap”.
This blog keeps the reader on the cutting edge technology creating the conditions for fulfilling the “666 Surveillance System”. I have identified certain technologies that are needed to bring this system to pass. These technological advancements are reported under headings, so the reader is kept on the cutting edge of developments and can see where it is all heading. These headings include: Cashless Society, The Mind, E-Tattoos/Mark of the Beast, Total Surveillance, and High Technology.
This blog is the complement to the “Image of the Beast“ which focuses on man’s quest to transform creation, and to become “as gods” by “directing human evolution” using transhumanism.
Remember, that this system is in place immediately prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. It really does appear that His coming is not that far off. Are you ready to meet Him?
As we move closer to the 666 Surveillance Beast state, surveillance and control are becoming increasingly heavy-handed. In this post you’ll find numerous articles related to places where you’re being watched – from street corners to inside of rental cars. It truly is becoming the nightmare envisioned in Orwell’s book, “1984.” Supposedly this all is for our protection, but does anyone feel safer because we’re being watched constantly?
That’s the great deception. We aren’t being protected, but rather controlled. All of the surveillance, data mining and data collecting isn’t for our benefit; it’s to control us more completely. We’re being lured into the greatest trap that mankind ever has seen, and we’re walking blindly, willingly, into it because of the deceptions of convenience and protection.
What is freedom worth to us? What matters more, safety or liberty? We can’t have both. It seems that society at large is choosing complacence and security because they’ve forgotten the principles that God set forth in His Word. He created men with the capacity for free will, but as they’ve forgotten Him, they’ve forgotten what that freedom means and how crucial it is to our existence as human beings. The articles below reveal how far down that path we’ve gone and how close we are to the Beast system which the Bible describes in Revelation – a system of total control.
What they’re giving us instead of freedom is a world of illusion, through virtual reality. We’re being positioned to live in the Matrix, whether we want that or not. For those of us to whom freedom and liberty is paramount, this substitute is unacceptable. We won’t settle for less than the freedom of reality found in Christ. But for the mass of the population who knows nothing of spiritual freedom the man/mouse trap is being set. And it’s being cheered as something wonderful, though it’s nothing more than illusion. The unfortunate part is that it will be short-lived, and no matter how satisfying the mass of people find it to be, in the end they’ll regret the choice because it isn’t reality.
We are now rushing at full speed into the complete control of the 666 Surveillance System with no human way out. Now is the time to turn to Jesus Christ.
Congress Pushes Obama-backed National Biometric ID for Americans We addressed a similar topic several months ago in the post, “The ‘Real ID’ is a Real Harbinger of Things to Come” but once again, it’s back to threaten us and this time, it’s worse. That’s typical in this area: if something planned for the Beast system isn’t immediately accepted, it’s constantly reintroduced until those in charge see their plans implemented, for one reason or another, in one way or another.
“After largely failing to prod state governments into developing a national identification system known as “REAL ID,” Republican lawmakers in Congress are once again pushing an Obama-backed scheme that would force every American to have a national ID card containing sensitive biometric data. The controversial plan, embedded in an immigration-enforcement bill, has been in the works for years, but has consistently been met with stiff opposition from liberty-minded grassroots organizations and activists. While the plan has failed in previous Congresses thanks to a groundswell of opposition, critics of the measure say that without prompt action, the unconstitutional scheme could soon become a reality.
The legislation, officially dubbed the “Legal Workforce Act” (H.R. 1147), is ostensibly aimed at preventing illegal immigrants from obtaining jobs in the United States. Among the most troubling elements highlighted by critics, though, is that the bill would purport to mandate a national ID card for every American as a condition of working. It would also force every employer in America to purchase and use so-called “E-Verify technology” to check with Washington, D.C., as to whether potential employees have government permission to work. Finally, it would create a massive federal database containing sensitive data on virtually every person in the country — a database that could easily be expanded to include even more information.”
“The failed Real ID Act of 2005 would have instituted a national ID system. The U.S. Senate is currently taking up a review of the PASS Act, S. 1261, which is a national ID system. PASS is touted as solving some of the issues of REAL ID, but it continues to raise very serious privacy questions for Americans.
The state driver’s license is at the heart of PASS, as it was with REAL ID. Information from states would be shared on a massive scale, creating a national database of information on individual Americans.
From the American Policy Center:
Congress is trying a new flimflam to trick Americans into supporting an International ID and a total surveillance society. Now they are pretending to REPEAL the REAL ID Act and replace it with the PASS Act (S.1261).
The REAL ID Act, passed in 2005 under the excuse that it would help protect us from terrorists and illegal immigrants, is tied directly to International ID biometric data banks, allowing constant surveillance of every American, no matter where they are. More than 20 states have refused to comply because it is an invasion of personal privacy.
Americans have told Congress repeatedly that we do not want to trade away our liberty for security.
Americans have told Congress repeatedly that we oppose REAL ID and any kind of government issued national or International ID Card.
And Americans have told Congress repeatedly that we do not want to be enrolled in any kind of Biometric Identification System.
That has not changed.
Now, Congress is rushing to replace REAL ID with the PASS Act – pretending that they are answering the voice of the people. It’s a lie!”
“It’s no coincidence that during the same week in which the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in Yates v. United States, a case in which a Florida fisherman is being threatened with 20 years’ jail time for throwing fish that were too small back into the water, Florida police arrested a 90-year-old man twice for violating an ordinance that prohibits feeding the homeless in public.
Both cases fall under the umbrella of overcriminalization, that phenomenon in which everything is rendered illegal and everyone becomes a lawbreaker. As I make clear in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, this is what happens when bureaucrats run the show, and the rule of law becomes little more than a cattle prod for forcing the citizenry to march in lockstep with the government.”
“Every dystopian sci-fi film we’ve ever seen is suddenly converging into this present moment in a dangerous trifecta between science, technology and a government that wants to be all-seeing, all-knowing and all-powerful.
By tapping into your phone lines and cell phone communications, the government knows what you say. By uploading all of your emails, opening your mail, and reading your Facebook posts and text messages, the government knows what you write. By monitoring your movements with the use of license plate readers, surveillance cameras and other tracking devices, the government knows where you go.
By churning through all of the detritus of your life—what you read, where you go, what you say—the government can predict what you will do. By mapping the synapses in your brain, scientists—and in turn, the government—will soon know what you remember. And by accessing your DNA, the government will soon know everything else about you that they don’t already know: your family chart, your ancestry, what you look like, your health history, your inclination to follow orders or chart your own course, etc.
Of course, none of these technologies are foolproof. Nor are they immune from tampering, hacking or user bias. Nevertheless, they have become a convenient tool in the hands of government agents to render null and void the Constitution’s requirements of privacy and its prohibitions against unreasonable searches and seizures.
Consequently, no longer are we “innocent until proven guilty” in the face of DNA evidence that places us at the scene of a crime, behavior sensing technology that interprets our body temperature and facial tics as suspicious, and government surveillance devices that cross-check our biometrics, license plates and DNA against a growing database of unsolved crimes and potential criminals.”
“The first news story to break based on the Snowden documents described how the NSA collects the cell phone call records of every American. One government defense, and a sound bite repeated ever since, is that the data they collected is “only metadata.” The intended point was that the NSA wasn’t collecting the words we said during our phone conversations, only the phone numbers of the two parties, and the date, time, and duration of the call. This seemed to mollify many people, but it shouldn’t have. Collecting metadata on people means putting them under surveillance. An easy thought experiment demonstrates this. Imagine that you hired a private detective to eavesdrop on someone. The detective would plant bugs in that person’s home, office, and car. He would eavesdrop on that person’s phone and computer. And you would get a report detailing that person’s conversations.
Now imagine that you asked the detective to put that person under surveillance. You would get a different but nevertheless comprehensive report: where he went, what he did, who he spoke to and for how long, who he wrote to, what he read, and what he purchased. That’s metadata.
Eavesdropping gets you the conversations; surveillance gets you everything else.”
“As Tyrone Lyles lay dying from a gunshot wound on an East Oakland street in 2007, he let out a few last words that would ultimately help authorities convict his killer. “Why you done me like that, Ar?” he pleaded. “Ar, why you do me like that, dude?”
The exchange, which was used in court, was recorded by ShotSpotter, a gunshot detection system that has been installed in over 90 cities across the country. By placing a series of microphones around high-crime neighborhoods, the system is able to pinpoint the location of where a gunshot took place with surprising accuracy, leading to faster response times from police.
But cases in which microphones have picked up incriminating evidence have raised the eyebrows of privacy advocates, who note that there could be Fourth Amendment implications.
“We are always concerned about secondary uses of technology that is sold to us for some unobjectionable purpose and is then used for other purposes,” Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst at the American Civil Liberties Union’s Speech, Privacy and Technology Project, told Take Part. “If [ShotSpotter] is recording voices out in public, it needs to be shut down.”
“Since mid-2014, Hertz has been upgrading “NeverLost,” the onboard navigation assistant found in many of the company’s cars. However, “NeverLost6″ has something not found on previous systems, a camera that faces the driver.
For years, rental car companies have had “black boxes” monitoring their cars. If you didn’t know it, most rental car companies know exactly where you drove their car and how fast you were going to get there.
In December, a Blaze employee rented a car from Hertz, noticed the camera, and tweeted a picture of it. As news of the driver-facing cameras hit a variety of tech blogs, Hertz was forced to address the issue.
In a statement posted on Fusion.net, Hertz spokesperson, Evelin Imperatrice claimed the cameras were only in one out of every eight cars in the company’s fleet and they are not yet functioning. Imperatrice’s email response to Fusion’s Kashmir Hill clearly states, “We do not have adequate bandwidth capabilities to the car to support streaming video at this time.”
The words, “at this time” at the end of the Hertz statement has us wondering if there is a time frame for increasing bandwidth capabilities in order to support the technology.”
“Finding GPS unreliable in certain situations, the U.S. government is placing a high priority on developing a more reliable real-time position tracking technology whose signals won’t disappear in blind spots and can’t be jammed.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is developing “radically” new technologies to deliver a more advanced position- and navigation-tracking system that is more reliable and accurate than GPS, according to a document on DARPA research projects posted on Thursday.
DARPA is also researching new technologies that could make real-time tracking possible through a number of sources. DARPA is developing sensors that “use signals of opportunity” such as television, radio, cell towers, satellites, and even lightning, for real-time tracking. The effort, called ASPN (All Source Positioning and Navigation) alleviates issues related to fixing locations in buildings, deep foliage, underwater or underground, where GPS access can be limited.”
“If you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re all criminals. This is the creepy, calculating yet diabolical genius of the American police state: the very technology we hailed as revolutionary and liberating has become our prison, jailer, probation officer, Big Brother and Father Knows Best all rolled into one.
Consider that on any given day, the average American going about his daily business will be monitored, surveilled, spied on and tracked in more than 20 different ways, by both government and corporate eyes and ears. A byproduct of this new age in which we live, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, is listening in and tracking your behavior. As I point out in my book, A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, this doesn’t even begin to touch on the corporate trackers that monitor your purchases, web browsing, Facebook posts and other activities taking place in the cyber sphere.
For example, police have been using Stingray devices mounted on their cruisers to intercept cell phone calls and text messages without court-issued search warrants. Thwarting efforts to learn how and when these devices are being used against an unsuspecting populace, the FBI is insisting that any inquiries about the use of the technology be routed to the agency “in order to allow sufficient time for the FBI to intervene to protect the equipment/technology and information from disclosure and potential compromise.”
“The day two keynote at Facebook’s F8 developer conference focused largely on virtual reality, yet instead of announcing any news regarding hardware or software, speakers took the time to make a massive pitch for a yet-to-be determined future where VR “changes almost everything about the way we live,” said Oculus chief scientist Michael Abrash.
The address, “Why Virtual Reality Will Matter to You,” was the second portion of the keynote at Facebook’s F8 developer conference at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, March 26. In the beginning portion of the keynote, Facebook CTO Mike Schroepfer provided some — not much — context for the role immersion will play in Facebook’s plan in the next ten years.
Immersion was the third leg in the plan which includes spreading connectivity across the planet, natural interfaces, and immersion — immersion being virtual reality experiences. He worked off the idea of sharing experiences and bringing people in on “moments” with a real sense of presence. He talked about reaching the minimum bar in terms of the developing VR technology — they’re “on the cusp” and hope to reach there in the next year, though it wasn’t totally clear where “there” is.
For the second half of the keynote, Schroepfer introduced Michael Abrash, chief scientist at Oculus. There were no announcements, but rather a heavy push to set the stage for VR in the future.”
“[A]s Facebook wrapped up its annual F8 conference Thursday, the company’s chief technical officer, Mike Schroepfer, explained to developers why the company snapped up the virtual reality startup Oculus last year for $2 billion.
When people head to a movie theater, celebrate their birthday or watch their child’s first bike ride without training wheels, they want their friends and family to be there. Virtual reality can make that happen, Schroepfer said.
The power of combining virtual reality with Facebook, he said, is the “ability to bring everyone in these moments in one point in time and have this true sense of being there.”
“In the near future, machines have been developed which allow for total immersion inside a simulated world. To save space, prisons have begun hooking their occupants up to these virtual reality simulators.
Advanced models of these simulators are able to create a seemingly infinite number of intricate worlds, full of rich experiences for the user. The ones used by the prisons, however, have only two settings:
Bliss and happiness
Some ending thoughts which caused me to write this: What makes a punishment just? Can a simulation be real enough to warrant calling it torture? If death were no longer a constraint on the sentence, would either program be immoral? Could endless pleasure be considered torture?”
Brain Scans Reveal What Dogs Really Think of Us Scientists are seeking complete knowledge of the brain, not only in humans, but in all species. They have been doing some amazing research in connection with the brains of dogs to determine what and how they really think. And it turns out they are more like toddlers than we ever could have imagined – dogs are more like human children in their emotional responses than they are like other animals.
“That’s right — scientists are actually studying the brains of dogs. And what the studies show is welcome news for all dog owners: Not only do dogs seem to love us back, they actually see us as their family. It turns out that dogs rely on humans more than they do their own kind for affection, protection and everything in between.
The scientists found that dog owners’ aroma actually sparked activation in the “reward center” of their brains, called the caudate nucleus. Of all the wafting smells to take in, dogs actually prioritized the hint of humans over anything or anyone else.
These results jibe with other canine neuroimaging research. In Budapest, researchers at Eotvos Lorand University studied canine brain activity in response to different human and dog sounds, including voices, barks and the meaningful grunts and sighs both species emit. Before this study, we had no idea what happens inside canine brains when humans make noise. In short: Dogs don’t just seem to pick up on our subtle mood changes — they are actually physically wired to pick up on them.
Behavior research supports the recent neuroscience too. According to Andics, dogs interact with their human caregivers in the same way babies do their parents. When dogs are scared or worried, they run to their owners, just as distressed toddlers make a beeline for their parents. This is in stark contrast to other domesticated animals: Petrified cats, as well as horses, will run away.”
God has warned in the Bible where this world system is heading. The 666 Surveillance System is now on the fast track. There is no stopping it. Are you going to be with Jesus Christ and eternal life, or are you going to take the “666 Mark” and be eternally damned? The stakes could not be higher: eternal life or eternal damnation. Now is the time to repent of sin and trust Jesus Christ as your Savior.
Make sure that you use The 666 Surveillance System brochure as it is a great witnessing tool. I also offer the Prophecy Packet which includes that 666 brochure. If you would like a copy, please email Dave at: firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for the packet along with giving your name and mailing address. Now is the time to use prophetic information to share the gospel.
The following verses state what the Bible says happens to all who reject salvation through Jesus Christ, and receive the “Mark of the Beast”:
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,
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:
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.
