The Meridian Star
Sequestration 2013 has arrived and we find no effect to date. The 2 per cent cut in the federal budget is about the same cut that came from your pay check January 2013 and every worker has made the adjustment.
Obviously, the net effect is zero cost to the federal budget. We as a nation will spend more money next year than we have this current year.
America finds itself in the middle of a war of lies with the apparent goal of destroying the United States Constitution.
In order to effectuate the removal of the Constitution the first leg of legislation is in place generally referred to as Obama Care. We as a nation have been in a battle for the life of a baby in the womb as a Constitutional concern. Next, Amendment 2 is experiencing a massive move to remove the constitutional right to bear arms — guns.
There is an attempt to grab Constitutional authority by presidential mandate in lieu of constitutional law. The grab for constitutional law by Obama is normally protected by the three separate powers of government. The first Amendment speech freedom has been challenged to varying degrees with prayer in schools, on athletic fields and the limiting of speech in the church house. Why is this coming into consideration at this time in history? Does this movement surface to allow another banner of law.
If we remove our constitutional rights as an American citizen what could be the next allegiance? Is the American citizen being prepared for a new World Order Constitution?
The Bible teaches in Rev 13:1 that John “saw a beast — the Anti-Christ, one world leader rising up out of the sea. And the dragon — Satan, gave the beast his own power and throne and great authority.”
Power was given to this Leader “to do whatever he wanted for forty-two months.” Rev 13:11 — "Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth. He had two horns like those of a lamb, but he spoke with the voice of a dragon." Rev 13:12 — "He exercised all the authority of the first beast and he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. He did astounding miracles," Rev 13:16 states. He required everyone — small and great, rich and poor, free and slave — to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead.
Rev 13:17 — “And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name … for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.”
Of great interest is the fact that technology to accomplish this prophecy and to track the control has arrived in the last 10 years.
As we look at the credit/debit card society and the move indicated by the Bush administration for a paperless hospital system by 2014 the implant of a tracking devise is a possibility. HR 3590, “the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” that is better known as Obama Care will need patient data. A search of the text of the actual law does not turn up “implant” in the bill and does not require mandatory implanting of chips in anyone. However, the expressed desire for the record for each sick body is wanted and needs to be attached.
This past week I heard a statement that expressed a desire to live another lifetime in order to see the coming events transpire. Jesus gave the world a warning in Luke 21:28 that should grab the mind of every person. “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption” is near.
