America's Charade

Counterfeit Christianity and a counterfeit economy; perhaps the best summation of America's affairs as it stands this seemingly final hour.  America's economic peril is no different than peril faced by other empires.  The freedom experiment started in 1776 is in no way guaranteed success through the generations, rather it must be fought, paid for, and understood by each new generation.  The culture though has changed to the point, as author Metaxes' interview points out, that the very ideas of self governance and dependence on God that this country was built on, have been lost and with that has brought a very real potential that the idea that founded this country may be permanently lost.

God is patient, but just, in time.

Excerpt from Interview with Eric Metaxes
At the National Prayer Breakfast, you talked about dead religion, which is the subject of your new book.What does the phrase "dead religion" mean to you?

Dead religion is the default mode of fallen human beings. Since the fall, mankind has tried to find a way to God that avoids God. We want to find a way to Heaven that avoids the cross. Dead religion is any religion, including bastardized counterfeit Christianity, of which there has always been plenty, in which we, through our own acts, can earn our way to Heaven.

Moreover, what that does is it inevitably sets up a pecking order where some of us are morally superior to others. That is not true Christianity. True Christianity is where we recognize we are fundamentally unable to get to Heaven, to connect with God. Therefore, we must humbly ask Him to come to us. We must ask Him to do what He wants to do, which is to bridge the gap between humanity and the divine. So dead religion is any time you have something that is counterfeit. I would say that which is counterfeit of God's real desire for us is opposed to humbling ourselves and asking Him to save us.
From Jesse's Cafe:
The almost frenetic preoccupation and adherence to the Nazi ideology in the latter stages of the war, when it was obvious to any rational observer that they could not win, is remarkable. I had been particularly struck in my reading some time ago with the 'wolf packs' of Nazis who had raged through Berlin, rounding up old men and even boys who had not joined the Volkssturm, and hanging them, even while the Russians were shelling the Reichstag. It never made sense to me until today.
"The radio announced that Hitler had come out of his safe bomb-proof bunker to talk with the fourteen to sixteen year old boys who had 'volunteered' for the 'honor' to be accepted into the SS and to die for their Fuhrer in the defense of Berlin. What a cruel lie! These boys did not volunteer, but had no choice, because boys who were found hiding were hanged as traitors by the SS as a warning that, 'he who was not brave enough to fight had to die.'

When trees were not available, people were strung up on lamp posts. They were hanging everywhere, military and civilian, men and women, ordinary citizens who had been executed by a small group of fanatics. It appeared that the Nazis did not want the people to survive because a lost war, by their rationale, was obviously the fault of all of us. We had not sacrificed enough and therefore, we had forfeited our right to live, as only the government was without guilt."

Dorothea von Schwanenfluegel, Eyewitness account, Fall of Berlin 1945
This is an almost perfect illustration of the credibility trap. One cannot allow the illusion to falter, even a little, to the bitter end. And as the fraud fades, the force intensifies, becoming almost rabid in its deflection. Because that illusion has become the center of a hollowed person's being, their raison d'ĂȘtre, a mythological justification for their existence.

If the ideology had been a lie, then they are not heroes and gods on earth, but monsters and criminals, and their life has been self-serving and meaningless, without significance and honor. And that is the credibility trap.

And this is the US financial system today.

Mark (Zuckerburg) of the Beast-Facebook Style?

 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.

Revelation 13:16-17

And we thought it would have to be done by force!  The preceding picture and article below displays a technology that should alarm anyone who realizes the potential of this face recognition software technology would have in the wrong hands.  The ability of technology has dramatically changed the face of our existence in the 21st century in how we interact with each other, but that amazing benefit has also created a similarly monumental and easy way to target and police mankind--especially if the sheeple consent to being watched.  

The latest technology allows people to sign up to receive special offers from a business by just walking in the store.  How?  By having their face read by a camera, matched against their online facebook profile, and then having a special offer sent to their phone.  

Sure, this may not be a major threat to our privacy now--during times of relative peace, but is it not too difficult to imagine a scenario where cameras like these match our faces to a national database to track our whereabouts in times of crises?  We do live in the nuclear age after all, 9/11/2001 type attack with suit case bombs could after all happen at any moment.  Can you imagine then the calls for police 1984 Big brother security then after such an attack?

Perhaps in the end, the mark of the beast prophecy, like the late Roman empires decline, will come from within.  Perhaps we will submit almost voluntarily at first to this technology long before its ultimate deadly use against mankind.  For those of us with common sense in this technology age, perhaps we should tread more carefully, assuming that just because it is easier does not mean it is good and that just because we live in a democracy now does not mean we always will.

The Facebook camera that can recognise you every time you walk into a shop

Shoppers could soon be automatically recognised when they walk into a shop using a controversial new camera.
Called Facedeals, the camera uses photos uploaded to Facebook to recognise people as they walk in.
Shoppers who agree to use the system, which has not been developed with Facebook, will be offered special deals.

A promotional video created to promote the concept shows drinkers entering a bar, and then being offerend cheap drinks as they are recognised.
'Facebook check-ins are a powerful mechanism for businesses to deliver discounts to loyal customers, yet few businesses—and fewer customers—have realized it,' said Nashville-based advertising agency Redpepper. 

They are already trialling the scheme in firms close to their office.
'A search for businesses with active deals in our area turned up a measly six offers.
'The odds we’ll ever be at one of those six spots are low (a strip club and photography studio among them), and the incentives for a check-in are not nearly enticing enough for us to take the time.
'So we set out to evolve the check-in and sweeten the deal, making both irresistible.
'We call it Facedeals.'

The Facedeal camera can identify faces when people walk in by comparing Facebook pictures of people who have signed up to the service

Facebook recently hit the headlines when it bought, an Israeli firm that pioneered the use of face recognition technology online.
The social networking giant uses the software to recognise people in uploaded pictures, allowing it to accurately spot friends.
The software uses a complex algorithm to find the correct person from their Facebook pictures

The Facebook camera requires people to have authorised the Facedeals app through their Facebook account.

This verifies your most recent photo tags and maps the biometric data of your face.
The system then learns what a user looks like as more pictures are approved.

This data is then used to identify you in the real world.

EMT Bomb: 90% of USA wiped off the map and Revelation 6

14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. 15 Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. 16 They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?” 

Revelation 6:14-17 

'The Heavens receded like a scroll'--I find it difficult to interpret the passage any other way than by reading nuclear bomb.  The only question is just how that bomb will be unleashed upon the earth in the earth's final hours.  According to this article, a 2004 study estimated that an EMP (Electronic Magnetic Pulse) attack could wipe out 90% of America within 1.5 years due to the radiation from the blast. 

One day the blast will happen, from whom and where, no one knows.  The effects of this blast however fit right in line with Biblical prophecy of 2000+ years ago.  This was never a possibility until the 20th century.  As each century has become bloodier and bloodier, and war and bloodshed become more frequent, I find it difficult to believe that the 21st century will escape the powerful and deadly effect of this weapon. 

Get your soul prepared to meet God, before you get to the point that you cry to the rocks and mountains to 'fall on us.'

EMP attack: '90% of Americans would be dead'

Just think. A nuclear device carried aloft by an Iranian rocket somewhere near the Gulf of Mexico and a blinding flash in the skies.
Within 12 to 18 months, experts predict, 90 percent of Americans would be dead.
That’s the catastrophic threat from the resulting electromagnetic pulse signal, or EMP, that an upcoming conference will address.

The group says it is “dedicated to defending and advancing Western Civilization against the kinetic and cultural onslaught of Shariah Islam.”

Featured speakers are former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, CIA Covert Operative and WND contributor Reza Kahlili, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, “One Second After” author William Forstchen, former Director of Strategic Defense Initiative Organization Henry Cooper, former National Intelligence Council Chairman Fritz Erdmarth and William Graham, President Reagan’s science adviser and chairman of the EMP Commission.

Founded by Tom Trento, United West began in 2007 as the Florida Security Council. Trento’s team created a national footprint through speaking, writing, video presentations and investigative reporting. As the organization took on more issues, including the encroachment of Islamic law in the United States, it expanded to become The United West as an umbrella to oversee a wide range of efforts.
It was Forstchen who described the impact of a nuclear bomb exploding somewhere in the skies over the U.S. Electronics would simply be disintegrated, he said.

Computers would cease functioning, and every system that relies on those components – food and fuel deliveries, communications, production, manufacturing, travel and everything associated – would halt.

Forstchen cited a 2004 study on the impact of such an assault on America.

“Testimony in that study said 90 percent, let me repeat that, 90 percent of all Americans would die within 12-18 months of an EMP attack,” he said.

Kahlili warns that Iran already has been practicing with missile launches from ships that simply put the payload straight up and high in the sky.

“That is the signature … of training for an EMP launch.”

Kahlili confirmed it would take only 60 seconds for such a warhead to be launched, and the result would “destabilize the infrastructure of America within hours.”
