Is Government Dependency Creating Victims for the One-World System?

These six examples of electronic benefit transfer (EBT) cards have replaced the paper food stamp coupons distributed through the states. The states above represent only a fraction of the now 45 million enrolled in the Food Stamp program, with millions of families being 2nd and third generation recipients- having low-level job skills and multiple children, incentivized by an increased amount of benefits per child.

Are Americans Being Recruited for the Beast?

Basic truth: If you are totally dependent upon any person, organization or entity for your food, shelter and security, then you will be controlled by it. In other words, you will most likely become enslaved to that source, and your behavior and ultimately, your life will be dictated by that same power.

Biblical prophecy: … and he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name (Revelation 13:16-17).

Consider the possibility that America is entering a phase in history that aligns itself with the prophecy written over two thousand years ago, predicting that the world would eventually devolve into a global governance where its citizenry becomes totally dependent upon a system that controls every aspect of their lives. If not, then is what we are witnessing close enough to make even the most care-free observer take notice? With over 100 million Americans now dependent upon the social welfare system, the current tide suggests that that the numbers will only increase and swell. Also consider the notion that there is an increasing effort by our federal government to enroll as many American citizens (and non-citizens wherever possible) into the bosom of cradle-to-grave care.

The false prophet spoken of in Revelation 13 will "cause" hundreds of millions of people to place themselves under the authority of the beast, meaning they will pledge their very souls to this system and the entity that ultimately comes into power. This causing will not be by force, but by choice... a free-will choice! This false prophet preaches about the goodness of the system and what it can do for them, what it will provide for them and the "fairness" all of its subjects will benefit from. As the false prophet paints a picture of an efficiently perfect, government-run utopian society, it will quickly become a horrible, inescapable prison! Go figure!

In 2000, there were 34 million Americans were on Medicaid. Today, there are 54 million. The same period shows that there were 17 million on food stamps with 45 million using them today. A record number of 8.7 million workers are currently receiving federal disability insurance payments, with the ranks expected to increase even more, in part because of relaxed federal requirements for applicants.

In our capitalist society, each person is born to operate as a free-willed agent who has the power to engage in the said system, making contracts, forming partnerships, investing in other business ventures and other forms of income production including the seeking of employment from those who establish their own form or method of wealth generation. The effort to work for a living, thus providing the means to raise families, support community projects and add to the general well-being of the society should not be hindered. On the other hand, the individual is also free to do absolutely nothing, but at great peril, would find himself living at the mercy of others.

Our welfare system was supposedly designed to temporarily assist individuals and families during times of financial distress in order to prevent starvation, hunger and homelessness. The key word is "temporary!" Unfortunately, for far too many Americans, our social welfare system has become a way of life! If fact, we are into several generations of families who no longer view these benefits as acts of charity and benevolence, but rights of entitlement! With the current Obama administration, the quest to enroll as many as possible has begun. Record numbers of citizens are now receiving food stamps, about 45 million people are enrolled in the food stamps program, with the federal government spending.

Another incentive for families to become permanent dependents of the state occurred when President Obama signed an executive order that dropped the work requirement for welfare recipients—an important and successful part of former President Bill Clinton’s 1996 effort to encourage the heads of households to seek gainful employment instead of living off of the system.

Also on the rise is the number of workers applying for and receiving disability benefits. The CNS News report shows that the 8,753,935 benefit recipients.The report also states that when President Obama took office in January of 2009, the ratio of people actually working and those claiming disability benefits was 19 to 1. By June of 2012, the ratio has decreased to 16:1. In comparison, in July of 1967 the ratio was 41 to1. With qualifications for receiving these benefits having been relaxed, the Social Security Disability Insurance Trust Fund has run deficits for the past three years. Reports say that the most common qualifying disability is a mysterious ailment known as fibromyalgia, and under the Social Security Administration's definition of "disability," the effort of many otherwise able-bodied individuals eventually pays off! Again, the end result in many cases is the increased enrollment of people into a depency class. Although there are legitimate cases, where workers truly are disabled and cannot perform work, they are being crowded out by those who have figured out that they can survive on the government largess.

The radio frequency identification (RFID) device is small enough to be planted in the most inconspicious places on the human body. It is capable of containing everything about your existence: health, education, financial, personal, and can even emit a signal telling where you are!

Additional and increasing evidence points even to the Affordable Health Care for America Act of 2009. The Obama Health care bill includes (under Class II, Paragraph 1, Section B) “(ii) a class II device that is implantable”. Then on page 1004 it describes what the term “data” means in paragraph 1, section B:

14 (B) In this paragraph, the term ‘data’ refers to
15 information respecting a device described in paragraph (1),
16 including claims data, patient survey data, standardized
17 analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of
18 data from disparate data environments, electronic health
19 records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the
20 Secretary

This means that every person who has fought to usher in this form of government-controlled health care has been an accessory to America's paradigm shift not only in its relationship with the government, but also in its departure from its fundamental faith in God Almighty!

Besides creating a dependent voting constituency, whether purposeful or unknowingly, our federal government is seemingly traveling at breakneck speed to enroll as many people onto its payroll as it possibly can before the November 6, 2012 election. This effort also includes increasing the number of federal government employees, resisting attempts to stem illegal voting patterns and opening the floodgates for illegal immigrants. Bundle these efforts with the class warfare rhetoric, President Barack Obama has preached the gospel of government dependency since the day he took the oath of office. All of his efforts has been geared towards having as many people totally dependent upon the government, but the question Americans should ask is, “Why?

The Authenticity of Biblical Prophecy

In spite of an entire world of detractors, there is no other record written or spoken in which humanity’s epic journey has been documented and revealed to us the way the Bible has—from the unfolding of history to the issues of the human heart—the Holy Bible has left an indelible mark in the pages of humanity’s record! The Jewish and Christian writers, having been led by God and the Holy Spirit have given us all of the necessary information to interpret the times, discern the hearts and make the right decisions. Even today, we see events and circumstances that do not fall outside of the human experience, but is predictably accurate and terribly close. As if the world is a stage, and the characters are following a pre-written script, all of the events today are being dramatized and played out before our very eyes!

No other original writing speaks so definitively about the evil embedded within the eventual establishment of the one-world, global governance headed by a person we know as the antichrist, who is Satan manifested in the flesh, ruling over a world of people who willfully choose his reign and faithfully love him and seek to carry out and fulfill his every word! Subsequent literature merely reinterprets (at best) that which God has already given us; or distorts (at worst) the truth in order to deceive (also Blblical prophecy). Finally there are those who refuse to believe not only in the Bible, but God Himself!

Generations have been apprehensive of the establishment of some sort of system that controls every aspect of each individual’s life—especially in the line of being able to electronically monitor and manipulate. Those who lived a hundred years ago could hardly imagine the common use of plastic cards or micro-chips smaller than a grain of rice that could hold the amount information greater than all of the books contained in the world's greatest libraries! Even today, the notion of some sort of mark-- a computerized chip or a bar code readable by a simple scanning device-- that can hold a person's entire life's information so completely is no longer science fiction, but science reality!

Those who have decided to live their entire lives on the social welfare system are the prime targets for the Beast. They have willfully given up practically everything that God had given to them in exchange for food, shelter and security. They were “caused” to sell their souls, not by force, but by enticing words and promises. These are the “Markers!” prone and willing to accept all that the government offers because it is free!

In Matthew 16:26, Jesus asked a piercing question, For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? There MUST be a genuine concern for those who live such carefree lives simply because the federal government provides them with enough sustenance that the desire to be productive no longer exists within them. Slothfulness is a sin, and nothing is free! To believe that the government benefits are the result of God's provisions is deceptive, because He is no longer the One worshipped-- government is! Many of the benefit recipients are living under the belief that the free ride is a blessing, but their loyalties have caused them to reject the kingdom of God and His righteousness in favor of food and shelter. As seen in the European nations, God is not honored except for a small number of believers, while the majority of the continent's citizenry prepare to burn down cities if their government-provided benefits are even decreased!

The Pending Doom for the “Markers”

Of all things and concerns, just the suggestion that the millions of Americans and hundreds of people around the world could possibly be living in a system destined to render them into eternal separation from God and unbridled suffering should be brought into the main stream of Christian conversation and missionary effort. At the risk of being condemned, this message is still worth the effort to bring a clear and direct warning to anyone who is in danger. Are these coincidences? Or is God showing us the script that reveals the entire drama are it unfolds? In either case, the message is worth consideration. This is the final outcome for those who depend upon the system instead of God:

Revelation 14:9-11...

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Revelation 19: 19-21...

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Those who chose to receive the mark of the beast will not enter the kingdom of heaven, neither will their names be written in the Lamb's book of life. Always remember, NOTHING in this world is truly free, and what the world is declaring is free might cost you the greatest possession you have ever had... your soul!
