Let me go through a few things on the news here and to just give you an idea that there may be a whole lot more time than we have anticipated, because we've gone over the kings of the east. I'm going to fill in some of the things that we have come up to the point in the sermon series 14 Things to Watch in Prophecy. I think you will see some very interesting things transpiring and maybe we can connect the dots.

Isn't that convenient with the reformed communist Daniel Ortega? Remember how much was spent secretly by the U.S. government and Ronald Regan to get rid of him? Well, he's reformed and elected back so now the reform communists in China are reaching out for power all around the world.

Remember, they have the experience to do it, because they built the largest dam in the world on the Yangtze River. If you don't believe that, look it up, and it's going to be a tourist attraction.

Let's look at another one here: Medicaid. Remember what Nancy Pelosi said when they passed it? They asked her, 'What's in it?' She said, 'We have to pass it before you know what's in it, so you can read it.' Remember that? There's a little part in the Medicaid. Who are signing up for Medicaid? Many people! It is supposed to be for those who have no assets, who need care, to help them. Now people who have assets can sign up for Medicaid, and lo and behold, there is a little, little clause that when you die they can seize your estate to pay back the federal government for your free care. Interesting! What about your heirs? Deducted first!

Here's another one. Since the government wants money and will even take it from you after you die—isn't that convenient? They take up to 50% in some cases. New York State, between all taxes—federal, state, local, un-local, above ground, underground, in the air—62% of your income goes to taxes.

You have an IRA? 401k? retirement savings account? I suggest you need to think about what you are going to do, because they're going to follow the example of what Poland did. Poland had a lot of debt and they had to get some cash. What did they do? They said, 'Okay, everyone who has a retirement account'—similar to an IRA and 401k—'you must buy Polish government bonds.' Guess what's coming down the road? You better watch your retirement accounts. What you do with it, you need to have it in such a way that the government can't come and seize it at any time they like. I'll let you do your imagination. Read the fine print.

Here's another one. Remember in the things that we covered concerning the 14 Things to Watch in Prophecy; we talked about the Jews and Jerusalem. Now the Jews and Jerusalem are really being put in a bind. Not only has the present administration virtually abandoned them, they are now working on an agreement to bring peace between the Palestinians and the Jews. They've been working on this for 60 years.

One of the things that the current Secretary of State Kerry is doing is negotiating between the Jews and between the Palestinians. The Palestinians are supposed to be Catholic. And they call themselves 'Christians'? To love your brothers as yourself and your enemies? How do they treat the Jews?

But in the recent snowstorm they had there, Dolores brought out to me in the news, they are so depraved of what to do to take care of the people that they had to call on the Jews to bring out their snow-removal equipment to get rid of the snow, because they are so intelligent they couldn't figure out what to do.

This agreement calls for all of the so-called Christian sites—those are Catholic and Orthodox—to be under papal control, which then gives the presence of the Vatican in Jerusalem and would have a wide-open office space and worship space—I'll put this in, doesn't say it in the news clipping, but I'll add it: for the coming false prophet!

So, all of these things are beginning to come together. Isn't it interesting, they're all coming together, a little here, a little there? Let's also realize there is the super-elite, the powerful people of the super-elite. They are the ones who know each other at the very highest, highest level. Then they have their assistants working for them down the scale and it goes all the way down to the lower levels.

These are the ones that the Bible identifies as the synagogue of Satan. It is mentioned also in Rev. 2 that against the Church of Smyrna it was the synagogue of Satan that brought it about. That was the beginning of the forming of the Roman Catholic Church. This does not mean that all of these people are exclusively Jews, but the super-elite, a lot of those we know nothing about.

  • they control banking
  • they control the large corporations
  • they control the medicine
  • they control the governments
  • they control the high-level technological things that they are working on today

Notice the admonition in Rev. 3; it shows that we will be confronted with it in our day and also show us what we need to be doing. Do not succumb to any of the things of the world coming into the Church! Of course, we saw how Satan has done that in the past.

A lot of people like to claim that they belong to the Church of Philadelphia, even some Seventh Day Adventists claim that. They have a church in San Francisco, Seventh Day Adventists church. I was driving by there one day and I saw this sign—the Philadelphia Church, SDA.

Very few want to admit that they are Laodiceans. Some may. No one wants to admit that they're Smyrna because you are destined for prison and death! No one wants to say they are from Pergamos because Christ is going to have to personally correct them for their sins; likewise Thyatira. Everyone wants to claim they're Philadelphian. That is the goal that we need to shoot for. Living in this age, with everything that we have today, it's impossible for all of those in the Churches of God to be Philadelphians.

As God looks down on the earth, He looks down here, and these are the seven divisions as we find in Rev. 2 & 3 that we find in the end-time. You can find all of them combined together—not together in one organization—but combined in their various organizations wherever they are.

Revelation 3:7: "And to the angel of the Church in Philadelphia, write: These things says the Holy One, the one Who is true [Christ] the one Who has the key of David… [no man has it] …Who opens and no one shuts, and Who shuts and no one opens." God provides the way, the means, and things to do it.

Verse 8: "I know your works…" Remember this, brethren: We are not saved by our works that we initiate! It's like one man mentioned to me—he's not in the Church—'I come to Christ and claim the blood of Christ over me.' I said, 'You need to re-think that, because only God can place the blood of Christ over you. You need to ask Him to place it over you. You don't go take it and put it on yourself, because you need to think about it when you do that. You're telling God what He should do.

Verse 8: "I know your works…" We are to have spiritual works (Eph. 2) because we are all judged by our works; not how we are on the outside—that counts maybe 20%—but how are you on the inside? That's where all of our works come from.

"…Behold, I have set before you an open door, and no one has the power to shut it because you have a little strength, and have kept My Word, and have not denied My name" (v 8). When you start accepting other teachings from the world into the Church, you are beginning to deny the name of Christ.

Verse 9: "Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan…" That's the power that runs the world! The reason he put it this way is because it comes from many, many different sources, many different people and nations, especially at the end-time.

"…who proclaim themselves to be Jews… [they claim that they are going to save mankind their way] …and are not, but do lie—behold, I will cause them to come and worship before your feet… [worship God at your feet] …and to know that I have loved you" (v 9). Keep that in mind. When everything gets going tough, remember: God always loves you!

Verse 10, here's the reason: "Because you have kept the Word of My patience, I also will keep you from the time of temptation which is about to come upon the whole world to try those who dwell on the earth."

Let's look at a couple of things here that are important:

  • time of trial

That trial is nearly upon us. I think that trial will be the mark of the beast!

  • come upon the whole world

Is that local? regional? No, it's the whole world!

  • to try those who dwell on the earth

That's all inclusive—isn't it?

Let's look at a couple events that just happened. Part of my sermon was delivered today by the San Jose Mercury News this morning. You heard about 40-million people having their identity stolen from Target's computers? Anyone who believes that is an accident does not understand the power of Satan to push a button here and to push a button there; it's called—if you're watching—connecting the dots. People are frantic and they are already, as this report says, selling them. People are already having activated purchases by those who hacked them and stole them. I wonder how they did that.

Then think about the complete incompetence of the current administration and the so-called healthcare. They have no security at all on the computer system they have. Those who are actively signing people up are actively selling the identity. Wonderful honest people! 'The human heart is deceitful above all things.' Lie, cheat and steal!

So, 40-million! I wonder if in the corporate offices of the other gigantic large department stores they are shedding tears over the fact that this happened, because it will mean increased sales for them. I know I am being a little cynical. But what would you think if you were a corporate officer in Macys or Sears or J.C. Penneys and there is still 10 days left or 14 days left for Christmas, something like that. If you could have your sales jump up another percent or two, think of the profits you're going to make and poor little ole Target. Now they're stuck with this and a 'jillion' lawsuits to try and get out of it. What a way to get rid of a competitor!

Then here is the next one. What do you suppose that the loss of the identity of 40-million people shows? You need a foolproof system—don't you? What do you suppose the synagogue of Satan is going to come up with now? Everyone will now want it! In fact, the way that you get something to have people take—or to follow, or to do—is to make it the complete solution to solve the problem—right? Yes!

Let's connect the Target dot with this dot, just like it did in the paper on the same front page: a wonderful, magical little chip that will keep your identity, in the same paper. I'm going to read extensively from this because I'm talking about the super-elite. As I pointed out, some were shocked last week when I said that this man here, Eric Schmidt (Google), is one of the most dangerous men in the world. He's got to be part of that group.

Let me read some of these things here, because this ties in with nothing less than the solution for modern purchases, identification, which the Bible called, 2,000 years ago, the mark of the beast.

When they first came out with the digital angel about six or seven years ago, I gave a sermon, The Mark of the Beast is Here, and everybody got all excited. I said, 'Wait, this is just the start. They've got to perfect it.' What are you going to do when they do away with cash? Think about it! Connect the dots!

It's likely the world in the not-so-distant future will be increasingly populated by computerized people like Amal Graafstra.

Then it shows this person who has a little tattoo chip on the neck. I want you to think about it! The size of a postage stamp, go right on your neck. You can pick up the phone with that. You can call your doctor's office. You can put the phone right up on that chip, it'll tell them what is your heart beat, how your lungs are working, how your body is, what your temperature is—BAM! Going that way.

That's all well and good, but what they are not telling people is, they can send signals coming back. Just like the television you are watching. Oh, wonderful, they've got a little camera that's in there that they can turn on and see what you are doing.

Like with your car. You have On-Star? 'Oh, that's wonderful. If I get in a wreck, here I am in my car, it's all smashed up' and 'Hello, this is On-Star, we have you covered. We know exactly where you are and that you have been in an accident. The police and the towing trucks are on their way.' Then you say, 'Please contact my insurance company for me, will you?' Yes, right away, we've got it on record here.

You're still able to get out of your car and you take your handy-dandy cell phone with a camera on it, which has your insurance company's address and your agent there and you get out and you take a picture of the accident. This one happened to be not too bad, so you're just a little shaken up and after the police come and after the tow trucks get there and the ambulance personnel checks you out and sees that you're and okay, you can get back in your car and go.

What you do, you dial up your insurance agent and you say, 'I'm sending a picture. Here it is.' You get home, says, 'Congratulations, here is your check to get it fixed.' Why, that's really convenient. Yes, indeed, very convenient! Here's what they say:

"In the next 10 to 20 years we will see rapid development in bioengineered and man-machine interfaces," predicted Graafstra, who wrote a book about the technology, adding that the trend is going to "push the boundaries of what it means to be human."

In other words, they want to have it so that with your identity, and some have it. There's a firm up in Seattle, already sold it to 500 people. You have your car, your house, your personal items, all set to the chip in your hand, and your door opens, your car opens. Now you don't even need a key, just press a button and your car starts.

Think of this; my little devious mind runs this way, too: What do you have to give to the police? In case of emergencies, what do you need? You need a master frequency device that will open any door—open anything—and the police will need this in case of an emergency to help you.

They will also have it, and Google is working on it, so that you can come up to a computer—thanks to Raymond Kurzweil—come home at night from the busy, busy day and you sit down and you have your tea or you have your cocktail and you back up to your computer with your little head-thing set up there, and you can sit there and think and download all your thoughts for today. Can you delete all your lust?

Also they are working on something so they can recall all your memories. How is that going to be in the case of crime? That's going to cut down on the investigation time—right? Yes, just back him up here to this device and push this button and we'll go back to such-and-such a date and there they can call up the complete re-enactment of the murder.

In a patent application made public in November, Google's (GOOG) Motorola Mobility branch proposed an "electronic skin tattoo" for the throat

Not intrusive, you don't have to put anything in there. You don't have to worry about it migrating to other parts of your body or getting into a vein and being pushed along in a vein and all of a sudden you have a heart attack. What's that heart attack? Oh, my chip got loose! A little tattoo; who's going to be against that? And with that tattoo they can send and receive!

—with a built-in microphone, battery and wireless transceiver…

Transceiver means you can send and receive.

…that would let someone operate other devices via voice commands.

Open the door; turn on the computer—isn't that convenient? All of these are coming together at this time.

For all of those of you out there who don't believe the whole Bible, or believe that the Bible is a bunch of myths conjured up by men, let me tell you what God says:

  • it is the Word of God
  • God is a God of Truth
  • He does not lie
  • everything in here is God breathed
  • every Scripture will prove itself true

Some now, some in the past, some in the future, but all true.

Genesis 11:1: "And the whole earth was of one language and one speech…. [we're almost there with English and digital communication] …And it came to pass, as they were migrating toward the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar. And they settled there. And they said to one another, 'Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.' And they had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, 'Come, let us build us a city and a tower, with its top reaching into the heavens…'" (vs 1-4).

Go clear up into space! Guess what just landed on the moon? A Chinese robot to go around and see what's on the moon! Remember what I said about China? It's going to become the most powerful nation on earth!

"'…And let us establish a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered upon the face of the whole earth'" (v 4). One-world government! That's what we have in the end-time. This was at Babel, or Babylon. What is the whole system of the world called today? Babylon the Great, because it's encompassing the whole world!

Verse 5: "And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the children of men had built. And the LORD said, 'Behold, the people are one and they all have one language. And this is only the beginning of what they will do…'" (vs 5-6). Today we live in the time when we will see the ending of what they will do.

"'…now nothing…'" You have to read that over several times, because what looked like it was impossible before is now possible because of this verse.

"'…which they have imagined to do will be restrained from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they cannot understand one another's speech'" (vs 6-7). Now this is being completely reversed.

What I want you to understand is that Google is not alone. You have many companies. The whole Silicone Valley is the center of the world's development of these satanic systems designed to bring the whole world together in a world civilization and Satan the devil will be worshiped as God. That's where it's heading.

from Computerizing people may be next step in tech

When asked, Google said it often seeks patents…

They are patenting this device that one of the workers came up with. Can you imagine all the people sitting around there trying to devise this and devise that, and devise the other thing? We don't know how far they have gone in the technology because they don't tell you. Add another little fact over here. It's called the Human Genome Map where they can map all your genes. Think about what they are trying to do.

When asked, Google said it often seeks patents on employee brainstorms and that, while "some of those ideas later mature into real products or services, some don't….

Google is in the midst of that.

…Eventually you'll have an implant where if you think about a fact, it will just tell you the answer."

What does that convey to us? Two-way! If it can go out, it can come back. What do you need for perfect control? This will appear almost magically when they get everybody involved. This will cut down on crime. This will cut down on thievery. This will cut down on all these things. But remember, you give up your free will. God is not interested in having crime stop because an outside force makes you stop. God is interested in stopping crime by your obeying God and following His laws.

When you read the Ten Commandments just as they are, in the letter of the Law, every human being can understand it and every human being, in spite of the evil that's in the mind, can keep the Ten Commandments of God in the letter. No one is exempt! But since they don't, we'll make them do it. That's not God's way.

Similar notions are under study by others, including UC Berkeley researchers…

All the major colleges and universities; all the major think tanks around the world. Think about what they are doing in:

  • China
  • Russia
  • U.K
  • America
  • at M.I.T
  • all of the universities

because they all have departments working on these things

When they are ready—VOILA!—there it is. What do we need to have people run to it and embrace it? A total collapse of the banking system! How convenient that it's just around the corner. Here's what they are working on at Berkeley:

In a scholarly paper published in July, they proposed implanting people's brains with thousands of tiny sensors they called "neural dust."

How small can you make a computer chip? Total control! That's why taking the mark of the beast God does not want you to do it, even to the pain of death, because you give up your free will! Even God will not violate the giving of the free will to individuals, whether good or bad. He set the laws in motion that the penalties will come upon them for doing things evil.

The idea initially is to have the little circuits gather detailed data on brain functions. But eventually, lead researcher Dongjin Seo said, the electronic swarms may prove useful for "controlling devices via thought"…

What is the device they want to control? People!
…or stimulating malfunctioning brain regions to restore "limb motor control for paralyzed patients."

Well, that's good. Then you also have it in Stanford. You have it in Digital Health of Redwood City that won approval for some things.

Some fear implants might become mandatory for health insurance or jobs.

There is a provision in ObamaCare to do that very thing. Remember, 'we have to pass it before we can read it, because if it became public knowledge before they passed it, they would have had rebellion. They still may get it. I hope it totally collapses and God gives us a space of time so we can do some more things. They are working on them in Cincinnati.

California Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, introduced a bill that became law in 2008 forbidding anyone in this state from making similar demands.

That is the kind of surveillance that they want. I won't read any more of that.

What I want you to know is: Satan is busy and working, and men and women and organizations from the highest level down to a certain level are working hard to make these things happen.

Let's come to Rev. 13 and review that again concerning this. I want to say very clearly to all of those who are Sabbath-keeping churches—especially the Seventh Day Adventists, and some Churches of God—that you say the mark of the beast is Sunday-keeping. You are absolutely, totally wrong! You, in preaching those doctrines, are deceiving people into that it's okay to accept it because it is for identification.

Revelation 13:16: "And he causes allthe small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, to receive a mark in their right hands, or in their foreheads."

I've speculated for years—right hand goes to the general masses; forehead goes into various levels of government. So that you have—as a member of the government, to enforce the will of the government—more power from the government, over all of the hapless masses so that you can control them.

Verse 17: "So that no one may have the ability to buy and sell…" That has nothing to do with blue laws for Sunday.

  • Are you going to enforce that upon the Muslims?
  • Are you going to enforce that upon the Buddhists?
  • Are you going to enforce that upon the businesses?
  • You think you're going to get businesses to close down on Sunday because some man dressed in a woman's garb declares Sunday is the day of worship?

Not on a bet!

Verse 17: "So that no one may have the ability to buy and sell unless he has the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." The Greek conveys this: 'ou dunatai'

  • 'ou'—the complete negative
  • 'dunatai'—from 'dunamis'—power, ability

No power, no ability to buy or to sell. Take away all money; take away all credit cards; give them a chip, and if you don't have it you cannot buy.

A lot of us have had credit cards. You go in to buy something and it comes back, 'Sorry, you can't buy.' You ever had that happen? You try and explain it to them. Well, the machine says you can't buy. 'I don't know why they did it'. Neither do we! 'Is there any way I can get this?' You had to have another card that's active. So, you try another card and that one is not working. 'Just a minute, I'll use my cell phone.' You get your cell phone and you call, and lo and behold, it's cut off.

See how this is going to be? It's going to be totally different than all of these religionists with their thoughts of men saying it's going to be the enforcement of Sunday-worship, because you can buy on the other six days of the week. But if you cannot buy or sell because you do not have the mark, the number or the name, then you're out of luck.

For a while in some areas you'll be able to function if you have some gold or silver coins for a while. But sooner or later, and I think they already have the means to do so, they can track you anywhere in the world just because of you. That is what is coming at the highest level.

Don't you think that these 40-million people who had identity stolen from Target, that they would seriously entertain what would be presented to them as a foolproof way of this never happening again? It's not hard! 'We have perfected it! We've had all of our universities and all of our great computer companies working on this for decades and we now have it perfected. All you have to do is get this little tattoo.' This little tattoo will be upon, but also in.

They already have nano-tubes that replace silicon. A nano is one atom and they are discovering how to put information on the nanos. Think about it! Think about where you came from: a little speck! Everything about you—with all the genes and chromosomes—at conception the spirit of man was given to your mother when you were conceived at that point—right there! Everything about you is contained in that little speck! Then after nine months you are born. Now you are ready to start learning a few things as a human being, but that takes years and years.

Think what they can do if they can insert something that is compatible, either a tattoo with nano-technology on the tattoo, that can draw on your bio-electric system of your body. That's what they are working on.

That's all I'm going to cover today. That's a heavy load to think on. Let's be:

  • watching
  • connecting the dots
  • wise as serpents and harmless as doves
