Plan unveiled for 5,000 people in Wales to trial Universal Basic Income
Article from ITV news www.itv.com/news/wales/2021-06-09/plan-u...sal-basic-incomeFive thousand residents in Wales could take part in a two-year trial of Universal Basic Income, meaning they would receive regular and unconditional cash payments.It is designed to ensure everyone has a guaranteed income - regardless of their circumstances.The pilot would run in both urban and rural areas across Wales.The plan would see two pilots organised at the same time and would include every resident in the selected areas, including children and people beyond working age.The pilot would cost £50 million per year to run which amounts to 0.6% of the Welsh Government's 2021-22 budget.According to Autonomy, the independent think tank behind the plan, a guaranteed basic income offers "a direct way of alleviating poverty" and can also help to "overcome hurdles in the current UK welfare system." The First Minister of Wales Mark Drakeford announced last month that his Welsh Labour Government intended to pilot a Universal Basic Income.However, the plan needs the support of the UK Government before it can go ahead.Will Stronge, Director of Research at Autonomy, said:"All the evidence suggests that a guaranteed basic income would directly alleviate poverty in Wales and this plan sets out a sensible approach for the Welsh Government to follow in planning and devising a pilot."A well-designed pilot for Wales must be inclusive and broad enough in its scope to be able to capture evidence from across both rural and urban communities."However, there is a major elephant in the room which is whether the UK Government will cooperate or not to allow a pilot to go ahead."Guy Standing, Professor of Development Studies at SOAS and founder of the Basic Income Earth Network, said:"Having been involved in pilots in North America, England, Finland, India and parts of Africa, I am enormously impressed by the energy behind making Wales a pioneer of what should become national policy after the Covid-19 pandemic. "We need resilience, and only basic income security can provide that."

From the Scottish Family Party FB page

We imagine that schools were reluctant to cover it while children were at home, fearing parental objections. So, getting it over and done with quickly just before the long break seems like a good tactic to minimise the opportunity for controversy.

To clarify, we don't object to sex education in general, but to the SNP's immoral, trivialising, misleading and corrupting resources that are used in most schools.
Our advice: withdraw children if the school is using the RSHP.scot resources. Still be very concerned if the school uses other resources. Ask to see lesson plans, bearing in mind that apparently benign descriptions can cover quite objectionable content.

Born Again Christians created a new topic ' The subtlety of sin' in the forum. yesterday


Isaiah 1:16-17
16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; 17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

Sometimes sin will come into our lives without notice and in that, it is like here in this chapter where the nation of Israel had become corrupt through empty ritualism with irrelevant sacrifices that were not in line with the Law of Moses. The Jewish people sin started in a subtle way and then turned in to blatant disregard to Gods Laws and ways.
This is very much like us as Christians in our walk with the Lord, sin can creep in, in such a subtle way. Like for example these attributes, being prideful, vain, acedia (lack of care), envious, wrathful, slothful, greedy and gluttony etc.

In another way, we might think our plans and ways are superior to God, just like the Jewish people in these verses. We so need to stop this mindset and repent and follow God way for us.

We as Christians need to be vigilant and regularly examine ourselves before the Lord in prayer asking Him to make us aware of any unacknowledged sin. In my life I have prayed for the Lord to show me my sin and at times in church the Lord has showed my wrong ways through hearing the Word of God being preached. It was not a pleasant experience, where I was sunk into the chair my nails crippling under the seat, the Lord exposing my sin before Him.

I am so glad in 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Whether if our sin is subtle or blatant, you need to nip it in the bud and confess your sin and remember that our sins and iniquities were placed on Jesus on the cross, who was the sinless son of God and took the punishment for our sin.

You see God is holy and righteous and He hates sin. He can’t bear sin or a sinful person in His presence. We are all sinners, spiritually dead and deserve the judgment of God.
That’s why He sent His son to live a sinless life here on earth, that we have hope of eternity in Heaven. If Jesus wasn’t sinless there would not have been any need for the sacrifice of sin upon Jesus on the Cross.

From the sin of Adam and Eve, death came into Gods perfect world that he created for mankind. Through the sin of Adam and Eve the whole of mankind was born into sin and that is why God sent his only son Jesus into this world who was sinless. He lived here a perfect and sinless life, so that He was put on the cross and took the punishment for our sins.

After He took the punishment and died on the Cross, three days and three nights he was in the heart of the earth, and He rose from the dead. This giving proof in which was foretold in scripture and which Jesus himself prophesised that he was the Son of God.

So, you have a choice today either to live in your sin or continually repent when you fall short, I hope you will take time to ponder this chapter and two verses 16 and 17 where God starts to plead with His people to return to a right relationship with him.

The topic of the week is to open and study these two verses and any other verses in scripture that will help us to be aware of the subtle ways that sin enters our lives.

1. Let us start in verse 16 it says: - “Wash you, make you clean;” What does it mean to be washed? Is it by water and soap or is it a spiritual cleansing?
2. Verse 16 says: - “put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes;” what is this evil? Why has it become before Gods eyes?
3. Lastly in verse 16 is says: - “cease to do evil;” How do we cease or try and stop evil?
4. In verse 17 is says: - “Learn to do well”, How do we learn to do well?
5 Secondly in verse 17: - “seek judgment” How do we seek judgment? Why would we want to seek judgment?
6. Then is says: - “relieve the oppressed” who are the oppressed?
7. Lastly in verse 17: - “judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.” Why judge the fatherless? Who were the fatherless? Why plead for the widows, what have they done?
I hope these questions will give you some guidance and I look forward to getting more from this study.

The European Union is set to unveil plans for a bloc-wide digital wallet on Wednesday, following requests from member states to find a safe way for citizens to access public and private services online.

The app will allow citizens across the EU to securely access a range of private and public services with a single online ID, according to a report by the Financial Times newspaper on Tuesday.

The digital wallet will securely store payment details and passwords and allow citizens from all 27 countries to log onto local government websites or pay utility bills using a single recognized identity, the newspaper said, citing people with direct knowledge of the plans.

The EU-wide app can be accessed via fingerprint or retina scanning among other methods, and will also serve as a vault where users can store official documents like the driver's license, the newspaper reported.

Use of the digital wallet will not be mandatory but those who did sign up would benefit from an extra-secure digital presence and flexibility, those involved with the project told the FT.

EU officials will enforce a structural separation to prevent companies that access user data from using the wallet for any other commercial activity such as marketing new products.

Brussels is engaged in talks with member states to provide guidelines on technical standards for rollout of the digital wallet, which is expected to be fully operational in about a year, according to the newspaper.

'Simple, secure and will protect'

An existing system has had a low uptake across the Union, with only 19 member states introducing digital IDs for their citizens which were not all compatible with one another.

It's hoped the new system, which will present a more unified strategy across the bloc, will have a boost in uptake thanks to increased digital literacy and digitalisation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Given the planned compatibility across the EU, the uses of such an application are broad and could reach into practically every industry.

- endoftheamericandream.com/over-90-of-the...-giant-corporations/

The way that people view the world is greatly shaped by the “news” that they see on television and read on the Internet. Unfortunately, much of that “news” is produced by just five enormous corporations. In fact, although the numbers vary from month to month, more than 90 percent of the “news” that Americans watch on television is controlled by those five corporations. Smaller outlets such as Newsmax are trying to make a dent, but it is an uphill battle. Internet news is more diversified, but in conjunction with the 15 billionaires that own and control America’s newspaper industry, the same five corporations have come to dominate online as well. The tech giants have certainly helped their cause by designating them as “trusted sources” and by adjusting algorithms to ensure that we get a steady diet of the “news” that the media giants are constantly putting out. The entire system is designed to direct us to certain voices, and those voices are constantly working very hard to alter what we think about things.

According to one survey, the average American spends 238 minutes a day watching television. If you allow anyone to pump that much propaganda into your mind day after day, it is inevitable that the way that you view the world is going to change.

Sadly, a lot of people out there still believe that the big corporate-owned news networks are the “guardians of democracy” and are just looking out for their best interests.

Needless to say, that is not even close to reality. In our day and time, everyone has agendas to push, and the big corporate-owned news networks are not any exception. The “journalists” at those networks are going to shape the news to push the messages that their corporate masters want them to push, and anybody that believes otherwise is simply being naive.

So exactly who are these five giant corporations that own and control almost all of the news that we see on television?

Well, the first is AT&T’s WarnerMedia which owns CNN…

The Cable News Network (CNN) is a multinational news-based pay television channel headquartered in Atlanta. It is owned by CNN Worldwide, a unit of the WarnerMedia News & Sports division of AT&T‘s WarnerMedia. It was founded in 1980 by American media proprietor Ted Turner and Reese Schonfeld as a 24-hour cable news channel. Upon its launch in 1980, CNN was the first television channel to provide 24-hour news coverage, and was the first all-news television channel in the United States.

The second is Comcast which owns NBC News…

NBCUniversal Media, LLC is an American mass media and entertainment conglomerate owned by Comcast and headquartered at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.

NBCUniversal is primarily involved in the media and entertainment industry. The company is named for its two most significant divisions, the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) – one of the United States’ Big Three television networks – and the major Hollywood film studio Universal Pictures. It also has a significant presence in broadcasting through a portfolio of domestic and international properties, including USA Network, Syfy, Bravo, Telemundo, Universal Kids, and the streaming service Peacock. Via its Universal Parks & Resorts division, NBCUniversal is also the third-largest operator of amusement parks in the world.

Of course Comcast also owns cable news outlet MSNBC…

MSNBC is an American news-based pay television cable channel based in New York City. It is owned by the NBCUniversal News Group division of NBCUniversal (a subsidiary of Comcast). It provides NBC News coverage as well as its own reporting and political commentary on current events.

Disney has now become the largest media company in the entire world, and they are the proud owners of ABC News…

The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) is an American multinational commercial broadcast television network that is a flagship property of Walt Disney Television, a division of Disney General Entertainment Content of The Walt Disney Company. The network is headquartered in Burbank, California, on Riverside Drive, directly across the street from Walt Disney Studios and adjacent to the Roy E. Disney Animation Building. The network’s secondary offices, and headquarters of its news division, are in New York City, at its broadcast center at 77 West 66th Street on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

ViacomCBS may not be as big as the other corporations on this list, but their control of CBS News gives them a tremendous amount of influence…

CBS (originally an abbreviation for Columbia Broadcasting System, its former legal name that was used from 1928 to 1974) is an American commercial broadcast television and radio network. It serves as the flagship property of the CBS Entertainment Group division of ViacomCBS. The network is headquartered at the CBS Building in New York City, with major production facilities and operations at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City, and CBS Television City and the CBS Studio Center in Los Angeles.

Last, but certainly not least, Fox Corporation (which is controlled by the Murdoch family) owns and controls Fox News…

Fox Corporation is an American mass media company headquartered in New York City. The company was formed in 2019 as a result of the acquisition of 21st Century Fox by The Walt Disney Company; the assets that were not acquired by Disney were spun off from 21st Century Fox as the new Fox Corp., and its stock began trading on January 1, 2019. The company is incorporated in Delaware.

It is owned by the Murdoch family via a family trust with 39.6% interest;[9] Rupert Murdoch is chairman, while his son Lachlan Murdoch is executive chairman and CEO. Fox Corp. deals primarily in the television broadcast, news, and sports broadcasting industries. They include the Fox Broadcasting Company, Fox Television Stations, Fox News, Fox Business, the national operations of Fox Sports, and others. Its sister company under Murdoch’s control, the present-day News Corp, holds his print interests and other media assets.

Many consider Fox News to be the “conservative alternative” to the other major news networks, but the truth is that the “news” that Fox News produces is not really that much different from the “news” that the other networks produce.

Every day, millions upon millions of Americans have conversations that center around the “news” that they just saw on television. So those that decide what the “news” is going to be have an extraordinary amount of power.

Just look at what happened when the Fauci emails were revealed. They showed that Dr. Fauci had been lying to us over and over again, and they also showed that he was involved in a massive conspiracy to cover up the true origin of the pandemic.

But CNN, MSNBC, NBC News, ABC News and CBS News all decided that it wasn’t going to be a scandal, and so most Americans don’t believe that it is one.

On Monday, a British news source published a bombshell story about text messages in which Hunter Biden used some of the most racist language imaginable, and that should be front page news all over the country.

But the big news networks are being silent about Hunter Biden’s text messages. In fact, I couldn’t even find a single reference to the story on the homepage of Fox News.

So Hunter Biden’s racist language is not going to be a scandal because they don’t want it to be a scandal.

Meanwhile, Chris Harrison is being permanently canceled for simply suggesting that a contestant on his former show should be given “a little grace” for a mistake that she made in her past…

“We all need to have a little grace… Because I’ve seen some stuff online, again this judge-jury-executioner thing, where people are just tearing this girl’s life apart,” Harrison said during the interview. “I’m not defending Rachael. I just know that, I don’t know, 50 million people did that in 2018. That was a type of party that a lot of people went to.”

He continued: “The woke police is out there. And this poor girl Rachael, who has just been thrown to the lions. I don’t know how you are equipped when you have never done this before, to be woke enough, to be eloquent enough, to be ready to handle this.”

When are we finally going to get fed up with all the hypocrisy?
www.bornagainchristians.org/forum/newtopic#
If Chris Harrison is going to get canceled simply for wanting to show a little bit of grace to someone, how much more does Hunter Biden deserve to get canceled for the horrific language that he used?

But Hunter Biden is not going to get canceled because he is off limits.

He can literally do anything that he wants because his father is in the White House, and the mainstream media is going to protect Joe Biden at all costs.

It is at this point in the article that I should encourage everyone to turn off the mainstream news networks and never look back.

But we all know that the vast majority of Americans are going to continue to watch their favorite news networks no matter how corrupt they become, and that is extremely unfortunate.

The path from here to eternity grows clearer with each passing day as the prophecies of the book of Revelation leap off the page as never before.

The globalists of our day speak and write about their plans for transhumanism and the Great Reset, which sound remarkably similar to what the book of Revelation predicts for the future of the world during the tribulation. We also know that although these elite powerbrokers will enjoy much success for a season, God will destroy them, and Jesus will reign over the nations of the world for a thousand years.

At the current time, the world marches toward the mark of the beast as described in Revelation 13:16-18:

Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.

The following three initiatives are clearing a path that leads directly to the mark of the beast as described in Revelation 13.

1. PATENT WO2020060606: THE PATH TO CONTROLLING THE BUYING AND SELLING

Microsoft, along with Bill Gates, obtained this international patent in 2020: Patent WO2020060606 - Cryptocurrency System Using Body Activity Data. Yes, this patent is real as is its number.

Here is the legal description of the patent:

Human body activity associated with a task provided to a user may be used in a mining process of a cryptocurrency system. A server may provide a task to a device of a user which is communicatively coupled to the server. A sensor communicatively coupled to or comprised in the device of the user may sense body activity of the user. Body activity data may be generated based on the sensed body activity of the user. The cryptocurrency system communicatively coupled to the device of the user may verify if the body activity data satisfies one or more conditions set by the cryptocurrency system, and award cryptocurrency to the user whose body activity data is verified.

This patent envisions the use of a sensor that detects “the body activity of the user” and reports it to an outside digital computing source. The behavior of the individual then becomes the basis for his or her award of “cryptocurrency.” The reward or lack thereof results from what the sensor reports regarding the conduct of the individual.

Now imagine a world where all currency exists digitally, and that day is coming, and your receipt of it does not come from the fruit of your labor, but from behaving according to the desires of a distant governing body that sets the parameters by which the computing source rewards you. This is the future envisioned by Patent WO2020060606 - Cryptocurrency System Using Body Activity Data.

We do not know whether or not the antichrist uses this exact system to control the world’s commerce. However, the patent gives us a clear picture of how he will accomplish this task and tells us that the technology and planning already exist for it. We also know that other existing technologies, especially artificial intelligence, make it possible for one person to control the commerce on such a massive scale.

2. ID2020: THE PATH TO INCLUDE THE “GREAT AND SMALL” IN THE MARK

What about people in the remote parts of the earth? Does Bill Gates have a plan to include them in his futuristic world of reward and punishment? Yes, he does.

ID2020 is another Bill Gates and Microsoft initiative that seeks to provide 1.1 billion people in the world with the legal identification that they currently lack; it will give them a digital ID along with a vaccine, of course.

Here is a description of ID2020 from the official Microsoft blog, dated January 22, 2018:

As discussions begin this week at the World Economic Forum, creating universal access to identity is an issue at the top of Microsoft’s agenda, and we think technology can be a powerful tool to tackle this challenge. It was last summer that Microsoft took a first step, collaborating with Accenture and Avanade on a blockchain-based identity prototype on Microsoft Azure. Together, we pursued this work in support of the ID2020 Alliance – a global public-private partnership dedicated to aiding the 1.1 billion people around the world who lack any legal form of identity. To say that we were encouraged by its mission would be an understatement. We were inspired by it.

Today, we are excited to share that we are deepening our commitment to this issue by formally joining ID2020 as a founding member. In addition to a donation of $1 million, we will commit resources and expertise to further develop a secure, portable form of digital identity and help implement it across governments and agencies.[ii]

Notice the players include the World Economic Forum (WEF) that vigorously promotes both the Great Reset and transhumanism. ID2020 is not some isolated initiative that does not relate to the COVID-19 injections or the Great Reset; it’s all about identifying everyone on earth so the globalists can include them into their system of worldwide control, vaccinate them, and thereby monitor and control them.

3. “QUANTUM DOT” TECHNOLOGY: THE PATH TO MARKING THE RIGHT HAND OR FOREHEAD

So far, we have looked at the plans of the globalists to incorporate everyone on the planet into their scheme of controlling the flow of digital currency. But how do they intend to do this?

“Quantum dot” technology answers that question and I believe this will someday become the means for the antichrist to deliver his infamous mark and accompanying vaccine to the entire population of the world. By it, he will mark those who belong to him by tattooing their right hand or forehead.

A visualization of Quantum Dot vaccine delivery. The small needles dissolve when inserted into the skin leaving a mark or tattoo as well as injecting the vaccine into the body.

A visualization of Quantum Dot vaccine delivery. The small needles dissolve when inserted into the skin leaving a mark or tattoo as well as injecting the vaccine into the body.

Bill Gates, in March of 2020, referred to “quantum dot” technology as the means for implantable vaccine “digital certificates” thus connecting this emerging technology to his ID2020 initiative.

The ‘digital certificates’ Gates was referring to are human-implantable ‘QUANTUM-DOT TATTOOS’ that researchers at MIT and Rice University are working on as a way to hold vaccination records. It was last year in December when scientists from the two universities revealed that they were working on these quantum-dot tattoos after Bill Gates approached them about solving the problem of identifying those who have not been vaccinated.

The quantum-dot tattoos involve applying dissolvable sugar-based microneedles that contain a vaccine and fluorescent copper-based ‘quantum dots’ embedded inside biocompatible, micron-scale capsules. After the microneedles dissolve under the skin, they leave the encapsulated quantum dots whose patterns can be read to identify the vaccine that was administered.

The quantum-dot tattoos will likely be supplemented with Bill Gates’ other undertaking called ID2020, which is an ambitious project by Microsoft to solve the problem of over 1 billion people who live without an officially recognized identity. ID2020 is solving this through digital identity. Currently, the most feasible way of implementing digital identity is either through smartphones or RFID microchip implants.[iii]

The quantum dot delivery of a future vaccine will connect the recipient to an external digital source via the ID2020 technology to verify his or her vaccination. However, from everything we have learned so far about transhumanism and the sinister plans of the globalists, we recognize this as a key part of their agenda for world domination under the Great Reset of the WEF or the UN’s Agenda 2030, which necessitates the augmenting of humans via vaccines to make them compliant and obedient to the demands of the coming tyrannical and communistic one-world government, which will be slavery by any other name.

Please also note that the “quantum dot” technology will enable the antichrist to both mark and vaccinate people on the hand or the forehead.

CONNECTING THE DOTS

In summary, I will let Todd Hampson connect the dots for us:

The UN officially adopts a plan to change everything by 2030 with the promise that "no one will be left behind." Bill Gates pledges a "decade of vaccines" that culminates in the year 2030, and at the same time funds ID2020 with a manifesto that says (among many other things), "everyone should be able to assert their identity across institutional and national borders, and across time," and that they want to provide "an alternative to individuals lacking safe and reliable access to state-based systems."

In other words, vaccines and digital ID are merging together. But how?

Enter quantum dot technology. This new technology is well known, freely discussed in various online tech articles, and is the next step beyond microchipping. As I understand it, visible and invisible ink can be tattooed on someone as they are receiving a vaccine.

Embedded in this tattoo is digital technology that verifies they have had said vaccine. Presumably, this could also be technology used to give everyone/anyone a permanent digital ID.[iv]

Consider how the above three initiatives illuminate the path of the world to the mark of the beast:

With Patent WO2020060606, we have a picture of how existing technology will enable the antichrist to not only control the buying and selling of everyone, but also regulate their behavior once they receive his mark and vaccine.

Bill Gates’ ID2020 reveals his not-so-secret agenda to include everyone, “small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave” in his program to vaccinate everyone and provide them with a digital identity.

Through “quantum dot” technology, the coming “man of lawlessness” will be able to mark or tattoo everyone “on the right hand or the forehead,” provide everyone a digital ID that will track their every move and action, and vaccinate them at the same time.

Is it really so much of a stretch to connect the push for transhumanism with what God’s Word says will happen during the tribulation? Does recognizing the uncanny similarities between the agenda of the transhumanists and Revelation 13:16-18 really make someone a “conspiracy theorist?” I don’t think so.

Revelation 13 is not futurist code or a passage that one can twist to apply to the entire church age. If we look at what the apostle John wrote, what he intended to communicate, we see that it points to a literal mark from a real antichrist.

Do not let anyone deceive you into thinking that this is all symbolic with smooth sounding distortions of God’s Word.

THE GOOD NEWS

Through Jesus, God offers us life that greatly contrasts with the deadly path that the transhumanists have laid out for humanity.

First, in regard to Patent WO2020060606, the Lord does not reward us on the basis of our behavior (thank God!), but grants us salvation based solely on the blood Jesus’ shed for our sins. It’s precisely because we can never, never measure up to His standards that He intervenes with His grace, regenerates us, and gives us eternal life.

Jesus sets us free; the globalists plan to enslave people in order to carry out their deadly agenda.

Second, in Christ, our identity is so much more than a number on a distant computer database; we have a brand new and glorious identity! My favorite go-to passage for my identity as a redeemed saint is Ephesians 1:3-14.

1 John 3:1 says, “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” Romans 8:23 tells us that when Jesus appears to take us home, He will complete our “adoption” into God’s forever family.

If you belong to Jesus, you have an identity that far exceeds anything the world can offer. You are already a citizen of heaven and possess eternal life.

Third, as believers, the Lord seals us with the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:13-14) and in eternity He will mark us as belonging to Him as well as the New Jerusalem (Rev. 3:12). The mark of the antichrist will lead to perdition. The Lord’s mark will open the door for us to eternal life and a paradise beyond all we can imagine.

In my next post, I will contrast the Great Reset of the WEF with the great renewal that Jesus promises us.

Nearing Midnight: Is the Final Hatred of the Jews Upon Us? – Todd Strandberg - www.raptureready.com/category/nearing-midnight/

I find it extremely frustrating at the outcome of the latest conflict between Hamas and Israel. Here we have a zone controlled by terrorists firing rockets at Israel population areas. There was no provocation on the part of Israel for the firing of 3,000 rockets at their territory.

The Israeli military went to extreme lengths to avoid civilian casualties when bombing various buildings. They would call people in the targeted structure, telling them to get out. A giant firecracker device would be dropped on the roof. After people were given enough time to flee, the building would be imploded.

Despite Israel’s efforts to minimize the death of civilians, Israel was still portrayed as the aggressor by the left and the liberal media. Even as Hamas rockets were raining down on Israeli cities, the Biden Administration was asking Israel to stop responding to the attacks.

If terrorists operating out of Mexico were shelling our southernmost cities, the US would carpet bomb Mexico. No other nation on planet Earth is held to such a strange standard regarding warfare. When 911 terrorists were found to be operating out of Afghanistan, we invaded the whole nation.

As soon as the fighting stopped, Israel allowed supplies to flood in the Gaza strip. Many nations have offered large sums of money to rebuild the areas destroyed by the fighting. I don’t see the point of saying, “Here is another $10 billion to rebuild,” and handing over the cash. We know from their past track record that the funds will be used to build more rockets and tunnels for attacking Israel.

Antisemitism in the United States is more pervasive than it appears, said Malcolm Hoenlein, vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

“It’s worse because the majority of incidents are not reported,” Hoenlein told The Times of Israel at a meeting with staff in Jerusalem alongside the Conference’s chair Dianne Lob and CEO William Daroff.

“We get reports all the time of it. I see it not only in my own community but from rabbis who call me and others. And often, the police will not classify it as a hate crime because then the FBI has to come in, and the FBI doesn’t necessarily want to because it’s a lot of paperwork, et cetera… But they’re encountering more hostility, and the vast majority of incidents don’t go reported even though the number of reports is increasing sharply.”

It is quickly becoming politically dangerous to stand with Israel against Islamic terrorists. New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang recently tweeted in support of Israel and condemned Hamas.

Under pressure from local pro-Palestinian activists and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Yang issued a retraction, saying that “My tweet was overly simplistic in my treatment of a conflict that has a long and complex history full of tragedies.” He added that he “failed to acknowledge the pain and suffering of both sides.”

The May 28 New York Times front page featured photographs of the children killed in Gaza and Israel during the recent fighting under the title “They Were Just Children.” The newspaper does not typically put images of children killed by US forces on its front page. The New York Times is owned by a Jewish family, but it has always sided with Israel’s enemies. It covered up the Holocaust during World War II.

CNN is under fire for having hired a writer who posted several times on social media that he believes the world needs another “Hitler.” “The only reason I am supporting Germany in the finals – Hitler was a German, and he did good with those Jews!” Raja wrote during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. CNN has fired Adeel Raja, but only because people on the right made a stink about his comments.

The world is going to get a new Hitler in the coming days. He won’t be a foe of God’s chosen people. He will be the man that comes to ‘save the world.’ I think the growing hatred of Jews will be the driving force that forces Israel to make a peace pact with the devil. The Antichrist will betray Israel, but God comes to save His people from total destruction.

“Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad” (Psalm 14:7).

During a special briefing with US General Kenneth McKenzie, head of the US Central Command, the general warned about Iran’s destabilizing activities and the role of Russia and China in the region. The briefing took place on Monday, when he discussed a visit to Iraq and Syria and US withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“Another priority is deterring Iran’s destabilizing activities, which remains the biggest threat to stability in the Middle East,” he said. “I believe that our posture in the region has had a deterrent effect on Iran and made it more difficult for them to deny attribution for their malign activities.”

He said deterrence involves the US deploying ships, airpower and missile defense capabilities.

Discussing the role of Russia and China, he noted they are seeking greater influence in the region and stronger ties with various countries. Since 2015, Russia has increasingly intervened in Syria. Russia is also selling its S-400 to Turkey and has been welcomed by other US allies in the region, from Egypt to Saudi Arabia in recent years. Russia also has contractors in Libya and a footprint in Africa. Mckenzie noted that Russia and China sense a decline in US “engagement” in the region.

“China engaged with nearly every country in the region in 2020, using exploitative debt traps, the Belt and Road Initiative, and medical diplomacy with their vaccine, which has dubious efficacy, to try to expand its influence,” he said. “Russia is equally disruptive in the region, and their engagements are largely opportunistic and transactional. Russia seeks ways to position itself as an alternative to the West by offering to mediate regional conflicts, selling arms, offering military expertise, and participating in regional and multilateral organizations to advance their interests.”

Discussing Syria, where the US has a close partnership with the Syrian Democratic Forces, which includes many Kurds, Christians, Arabs and other groups, McKenzie noted that the US was still in the fight in the war against ISIS. There are concerns among observers that the US may cut funding to the SDF, and there have been clashes in Manbij and Turkish threats to security. McKenzie said that in the long term, “we’d like to transition this to local security organizations that are going to be able to provide this kind of security without a significant investment and international support. That’s still in the future, but that is ultimately the direction that we would like to move.”

The US is also continuing to support the Lebanese Armed Forces. Recent posts on social media have included messages of US support. Many wonder how the US can work closely with the Lebanese army when Hezbollah has a massive control of Lebanon. The CENTCOM said that “we remain committed to supporting the Lebanese armed forces. They’re one of the elements of the Government of Lebanon that actually functions very well, and we believe they should continue to be the sole expression of military power of the state in Lebanon. I had a good visit there a couple of months ago where I met with the chief of defense.” He also stressed the importance of training for the Lebanese.

The American general also addressed the US Fifth Fleet seizing a ship destined for Yemen that was alleged to be carrying weapons from Iran. It is at least the fourth ship seized in 18 months. Iran arms the Houthi rebels in Yemen with drones, missiles and other technology. Asked about the ship, the general said, “Yes, we seized a ship. It had a lot – seized the ship and a large number of weapons on it in very suspicious circumstances. We are still finalizing attribution for this because we want to be very careful before we go public with who we believe is associated with it.”

He said that the US military continues to work closely with Saudi Arabia on improvement of their integrated air and missile defense. “That’s a very high priority for us, as it is with Saudi Arabia, because they are subjected to really an unceasing bombardment from the Houthis in Yemen through ballistic missiles, small drones, and land-attack cruise missiles. And these attacks are not helpful; they’re certainly not helpful to try to find an end to the conflict in Yemen. And so we work very hard with the Saudis to enable them to defend themselves, so that work is going on and I’m pleased with the results that we’ve made.”

The US has been criticized by some for supporting the Saudi-led war in Yemen. Saudi Arabia says it is supporting the government of Yemen against the Iran-backed Houthis. But the war has dragged on for years. The new US administration wants to shift to only helping Saudi defensive capabilities. “I am personally convinced the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia seeks a responsible political end to the conflict. I am convinced they’re willing to take significant steps to make that happen. Unfortunately, I do not believe the Houthis are ready to seize the moment, and they have an opportunity here to enter good-faith negotiations with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to bring an end to this conflict,” he said.

The globalists have already begun implementing their plan to bring about the widespread acceptance of their transhumanism agenda to control your life, but very few people recognize it as such.

In order to reach their objective, the new world order, these elite powerbrokers have deceived many people into believing they have their best interests at heart. They have done this in order to gain our acceptance of the initial steps of augmenting what it means to be a human being.

They have done this through the opportunity afforded them by COVID-19.

ENTER COVID-19

COVID-19 appeared at just the right time to both enhance and advance the plans of the transhumanists for what the World Economic Forum (WEF) refers to as the Great Reset.

The Great Reset represents the building back of sustainable economic and environmental systems to replace those that currently exist. Klaus Schwab, the founder and chairman of the WEF, unveiled it in May of 2020 as a way for the globalists of our day to replace capitalism with Communism in the wake of the economic devastation he expected from the impact of COVID-19.

Schwab said this about COVID-19 in July of 2020, “The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.” Here “reimagine” equals the merging of humans with machines and “reset” refers to the Marxist government that the WEF promotes under via its Great Reset.

COVID-19 was not something that caught powerbrokers such as Klaus Schwab by surprise. They already had carefully laid plans in place as to how they would seize this “window of opportunity” long before December of 2019. They had mapped out a strategy whereby people would accept their solution to the crisis.

Peter Koenig, a geopolitical analyst and a former Senior Economist at the World Bank and the World Health Organization (WHO) wrote the following about COVID-19:

“We are indeed living in a very dystopian world, in a Twilight Zone. Once you see it – then you don’t; the disaster planned upon us. Does anyone still doubt that it is NOT a coincidence that all the 193 UN member countries were at once befallen by this mysterious virus, and that all at once had to “perform” their first lockdown? Namely mid-March 2020? ALL countries? On commando.

“Doesn’t this look like there is another motive behind?

“Is it a coincidence, that there is the 2010 Rockefeller Report (focusing on the Lockstep scenario) predicting ten years later as the first step in their nefarious 4-phase plan, the “Lockstep Scenario” – which is exactly what we are experiencing now; the entire western civilization is walking in lockstep, as we are told.

“Then there is the infamous Event 201 of 18 October 2019 in New York City , where the Johns Hopkins Center for Medicine, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the WEF sponsored a computer simulation of a corona virus striking the world, a simulation causing 65 million deaths in 18 months and a total destruction of the world economy. Coincidentally, just a couple of months before the first corona case, SARS-CoV-2, was discovered in China.

“. . . . the planned disaster that is still upon us under many different names, the pandemic, better called “plandemic”, is just the engine that drives a much heavier agenda – the elements of the Great Reset which are also the components of the so-called UN Agenda 2030.”[ii]

Though not a believer in Jesus nor the Bible, Koenig recognizes what most pastors and many Christians and pastors today refuse to acknowledge. He sees the true agenda behind COVID-19 as aiding the implementation of the Great Reset.

I believe the globalists planned the disaster we know as COVID-19 and it’s performing the desired function of pushing people toward their twin objectives of a new world order and transhumanism. Aided greatly by a willing media, the elite have created a climate of fear via inflated numbers of cases and deaths. As a result, many people live in a state of panic and have already given up many of their rights for the sake of health and safety.

Please know that I am in no way minimizing the toll that the virus has taken on those who have suffered greatly or lost loved ones because of it. COVID-19 has caused many deaths and much suffering throughout the world. However, the virus required much planning in order for it to reach 193 nations at the same time and for the media to behave as needed, in “lockstep,” to generate the needed worldwide fright that has ensued.

COVID-19 VACCINES AND TRANSHUMANISM

The globalists needed a worldwide atmosphere of fear so as to mandate their experimental gene therapy injections for which people would line up to receive, believing the shots would save them from suffering and perhaps death. And that is what has happened.

Please consider the following evidence linking transhumanism to these so-called COVID-19 vaccines.

Consider this Forbes article from November 20, 2017 entitled, Transhumanism and The Future of Humanity: 7 Ways the World Will Change By 2030. The following quote appears under the heading of “Our bodies will be augmented.”

The coming years will usher in a number of body augmentation capabilities that will enable humans to be smarter, stronger, and more capable than we are today. Wearables will be one form of body augmentation, but they will far surpass the fitness trackers of today. . . . We will also see increased use of implants ranging from brain microchips and neural lace to mind-controlled prosthesis and subdermal RFID chips that allow users to unlock doors or computer passwords with the wave of a hand. However, the most powerful body augmentation will come from biological augmentation as a result of increased insight into our genomes, advances in IVF technology that may allow us to select the most intelligent embryos, and powerful CRISPR gene-editing technology which may one day give us the ability to eliminate all heritable diseases.

These body augmentation capabilities will give rise to humans that are more resilient, optimized and continually monitored.[iii] (Emphasis mine)

A couple things jump out at me from this quote. First, the author of this article envisions that the merging of humans with machines will happen by 2030, which is the same year the UN plans to have their one-world government in place via the goals of their Agenda 2030. It’s not a coincidence that that the objective of the transhumanists aligns with that of the UN’s goals for a world government.

Second, the “CRISPR gene-editing technology” that they say will augment our bodies is exactly what we see in the mRNA injections in response to COVID-19. What the Forbes article predicted back in 2017 would lead to the augmenting of humans has become a reality in 2020-21 with the emergence of “CRISPR” gene therapy injections as a way to prevent the China virus.

As further evidence of the long-term planning behind what we see today, ponder this quote from Aldous Huxley at the California Medical School in 1961:

There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.[iv]

What Huxley talked about in 1961 is fast becoming a reality. Transhumanism has become the euphemism for “brainwashing” the masses in order to make people accept the Marxist government that the globalists have long had in mind for the world. “Pharmacological methods” have become the weapon of choice for the transhumanists to change humanity so as to control people and cause them to accept the future tyrannical and Marxist world order.

I believe the COVID-19 “vaccine” was ready, or at least far along in its development, well before December of 2019, when the virus first appeared.

The concept of an mRNA “vaccine” to deliver a “spike protein” to every cell in the human body did not materialize and become a reality in less than a year after the virus first appeared. The previous quote from Forbes tells us that the research into gene-editing mRNA injections as a way to treat disease was well under way in 2017.

From its start in 2010, Moderna grew to employ hundreds of scientists and engineers working on their mRNA injections.[v] Where did they get the massive funding for this? How did they know they would eventually make billions of dollars from their injections for an “unknown” and still future virus that would require their spike protein technology as a remedy?

Moderna is now “anticipated to make $13.2 billion in COVID-19 vaccine revenue in 2021.” The Moderna CEO, Stéphane Bancel, is a new billionaire with a net worth of $4 billion.[vi] Not a bad payoff for the company’s first medication ever to hit the market.

Note: I have since learned that the U.S. government also gave $6 billion to Moderna for its development of their gene-therapy injection.

THE CURRENT COVID-19 VACCINES HAVE OPENED THE DOOR

Please know that I am not in any way equating the current COVID-19 vaccines to the “Mark of the Beast” of Revelation 13. The antichrist, who will receive worship along with the mark, cannot appear on the world scene until after the rapture (see 2 Thess. 2:3-8). The church will not be on the earth when the “lawless one” begins his reign of terror and enforces his mark under the penalty of death.

Having said that, I believe the initial COVID-19 injections have opened the door to an outside governing body monitoring and later controlling the behavior of people. This is quite difficult for me to write about because I have many dear friends and family members who have already received the so-called COVID-19 vaccines. But I must say this:

If you have already received these injections; please, please do not accept future COVID-19 experimental injections. Dr. Fauci is now saying that booster shots will be necessary as early as the Fall of 2021. According to CDC VAERs reports as of May 25, 2021, 4,863 people have died in the U.S. as a result of the COVID-19 injections. See my previous post on the dangers of these shots. The European Medicines Agency (EMA), an agency of the European Union (EU), reports that from January 1 through May 22, 2021, they have recorded 12,184 deaths and 604,704 serious injuries following injections from the four experimental COVID-19 shots available in the EU.

THE MODERNA OPERATING SYSTEM

The fact that Moderna compares their mRNA injection to an “operating system” further substantiates the detailed advance planning involved for both the virus and their response to it. The company regards their first vaccine as the initial step that will pave the way for future injections.

If you do a search on this, you will run across many “fact-checkers” that will tell you that my claim is false. However, I took what follows directly from Moderna’s website:

Our Operating System

Recognizing the broad potential of mRNA science, we set out to create an mRNA technology platform that functions very much like an operating system on a computer. It is designed so that it can plug and play interchangeably with different programs. In our case, the "program” or “app” is our mRNA drug - the unique mRNA sequence that codes for a protein.

We have a dedicated team of several hundred scientists and engineers solely focused on advancing Moderna's platform technology. They are organized around key disciplines and work in an integrated fashion to advance knowledge surrounding mRNA science and solve for challenges that are unique to mRNA drug development. Some of these disciplines include mRNA biology, chemistry, formulation & delivery, bioinformatics and protein engineering.[vii]

According to the words on the Moderna website, their “mRNA drug,” which can only refer to their vaccine, acts like an “operating system” on a computer to which they can “plug and play” future programs into the human body.

What will be the purpose of the future programs to which the scientists at Moderna intend to plug into the human body? What do they intend to deliver through future injections?

By itself, the wording on the Moderna website might not cause great alarm.

However, the mRNA injections come at a time when the most powerful people in the world are pushing for the merging of humans with machines along with implementation of a Marxist world government. The Forbes’ article from 2017 tells us that the transhumanists/globalists planned years ago to augment the human body through CRISPR gene-editing technology, which are the current mRNA injections.

In addition, the warning of President Biden concerning those who refuse the COVID-19 vaccines should send chills down our spines. Why is this ardent supporter of the Great Reset telling us that we must take an experimental and highly dangerous “gene-editing” medication or we will end up “paying the price?”[viii]

CONNECTING THE DOTS

Building on what we learned from both posts so far, hopefully the following points will connect many of the dots for you:

The transhumanists planned years ago to augment humans into something quite different than what God created. This process included changing the human DNA via pharmaceuticals and implanting a device inside people that will connect them to the digital world.

COVID-19 provided the powerbrokers of our world with what Klaus Schwab said was a “rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.”[ix] Here “reimagine” equals the merging of humans with machines and “reset” refers to the communist government that the WEF promotes via its Great Reset.

Two years before COVID-19 struck, an article appeared on the Forbes website detailing the plans for the merging of humans with machines by 2030. In it, the author stated that the “augmentation” of the human body would include “powerful CRISPR gene-editing technology,” which emerged in 2020 in the form of mRNA injections.

The COVID-19 mRNA treatments have thus enabled the globalists to begin their quest of merging people with machines because they provide a path for further modification of the human DNA, or what Moderna calls an “operating system.”

The very people who have a vested interest in making the Great Reset happen are the very ones not only promoting transhumanism, but also demanding that everyone receive the still experimental COVID-19 injections for a virus with a 99.5% survivability rate for the majority of people. Why is that? What is the dire urgency that compels them to force a highly dangerous injections on us, which the FDA approved for “emergency use” only?

I have watched several videos where highly acclaimed doctors, many leaders in their various fields, connect the dots between transhumanism and COVID-19 injections with much greater detail than I have done in this post. A few of these videos left me speechless and numb for several minutes after watching them before an awareness came over me that the Lord’s return for His church must be breathtakingly close if what I heard was true.

Next, we will connect more dots between the transhumanists and their plans to enslave everyone on the planet. Please remember as you read that this cannot happen until after the rapture.

If you remain skeptical of what I have written so far, I invite you to keep reading. In the next post, I will show how three current initiatives are in sync with what Revelation 13:16-18 says about the Mark of the Beast. In my next post, I will show how the key parts are already in place for the antichrist to use in controlling the world’s commerce.
