The law is already passed and signed by President George W. Bush. By 2008 every American will receive a national ID card. Irvin Baxter answers: Will this become the mark of the beast? How close are we to 666?

World War III

A war emanating from the Euphrates River, as foretold in the Book of Revelation, is already underway. One-third of humanity is prophesied to die. The latest developments in the nuclear stand-off in the Middle East will take on horrific significance if they are what they appear to be.

The Death of Privacy

Spychips co-author Katherine Albrecht shows spine-tingling evidence that the entire globe is now entering into an age of unprecedented personal surveillance.

STATEMENT OF FAITH We believe that the Bible is

the inspired Word of God, that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and that He will come again to establish a kingdom that shall never be destroyed (Daniel 2:44). Those who are born again (John 3:35) will have eternal life and rule as kings and priests with Christ forever.

wHAT IS ENDTIME? In 1968, Irvin Baxter Jr.

discovered the United States and other modern nations in the Bible. He also found the Berlin Wall in the Bible and that one day it was to be torn down, re-uniting Germany, and that event would be the catalyst to spark an international movement called the New World Order. These things have now come to pass. Irvin Baxter Jr., a Pentecostal minister, began Endtime Ministries in 1986 when he wrote A Message For The President, a book explaining the major prophecies of the Bible which he had been teaching since 1968. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, prophetic fulfillment accelerated rapidly. The decision was made to launch Endtime magazine. The purpose of the magazine is to explain the prophecies of the Bible and to show that they are now being fulfilled in intricate detail. Articles focus on the soon return of Jesus Christ, the truth of the Bible, and the need for salvation. Endtime does not deal with doctrinal controversies, as valid as they may be. This will be left to other publications.

230 YEArS wITHOUT A NATIONAL ID

Weve gotten along for 230 years in this nation without a national ID card. Do we really have to, after all this time, suddenly give every American an ID? Do we want a national database with information on every citizen that can be pulled up at the click of a computer mouse? Im sure thats not what most Americans want. Why must we have it then? How have we gotten along for 230 years without being numbered and controlled by a national database? And what has changed that we are now being told that we absolutely must have these instruments of control imposed upon us?
WHAT HAS CHANGED?

ITS THE bOrDErS, STUpID!

For the last 230 years, the United States has relied on its borders to provide a safe and secure nation. However, in recent years wiser voices have led us down the path of the global village, better known as world government and commonly referred to as globalization. The world planners have told us that all nations are now interdependent and that we must now think globally. Terms like world community and international community have easily slipped into the global lexicon.
HOw DO YOU rULE A wOrLD wITHOUT bOrDErS?

Do I dare say the obvious? Weve gotten along without a national ID for 230 years because weve had enforceable and defensible borders. The globalists would like to tell us that this just isnt possible, but its been possible for 230 years! Our government can send a man to the moon but seemingly cant figure out how to defend our borders something weve been doing for 230 years. Amazing! Borders arent really that hard. Our friend Israel knows how to maintain a border. Its quite simple. In rural open areas, they build an eight or ten foot fence with a dirt road running alongside of it. Every two to four hours, the border patrol comes along in a jeep equipped with a road sweeper. As the border patrol drives along the road, they look for footprints the telltale sign that someone has crossed the fence and entered the country. If footprints are spotted, the alarm is sounded and the search is on. But we couldnt possibly afford to build a fence along our entire 2,000-mile border, the argument goes. Sure we could! If Israel, a nation of 6 million can build a 450-mile fence, surely a nation of 300 million can build a 2,000-mile fenceunless we dont want to. Perhaps the powers-that-be fear the establishment of defensible borders would bring an end to their utopian dream of global society.

In this day of interdependence and globalization, how do you control the populace of the world? How can governmental leaders provide security from terrorism for those they are entrusted to govern? Back when borders were really borders, foreigners (remember that word?) were rare and those who did immigrate to America came to fit in. They learned our language, adopted our culture and converted to our religions. They became Americans. With the onset of globalism and one-worldism, borders have become virtually meaningless. Cultures have intermingled, and nations have lost their identities especially in America. To suggest that the U.S. is a Christian nation evokes howls of outrage from certain elements of society. Our Judeo-Christian values have even been banished from government property by the courts. So if we dont govern a nation and preserve its values with borders, how can it be done? A recent novel idea has emerged around the world. The U.S. government has decided to give everyone a national ID with a number that can be entered into a national (soon to be global) database. Since all Americans already have Social Security numbers, the government has mandated that you must give your Social Security number in order to receive your new national ID. Once we have a national ID card that requires a number, we can be controlled by the use of databases and computers. If our ID is unacceptable, we wont board an airplane, open a bank account or hold a job. Amazing! Borders are being replaced with ID cards. We used to travel freely within the borders of our nation. Now we must be tracked everywhere, and freedom has now been replaced by control. The price of globalization is constant surveillance.

Are we so drunk on the wine of globalization that we cant recognize it isnt working? Will anyone dare stand up and state the obvious The emperor has no clothes on? Its time to admit that world government doesnt work and that the nation-state has worked nicely for 230 years. In the nation-state, you dont need an ID card. You can go anywhere you want within the safe and secure borders of your nation. Now that is freedom! Yes, there is an answer to international terrorism that doesnt require the surrendering of hard-won freedoms. Its just happens to be the answer that world leaders dont want to hear. One-world government (globalization) simply doesnt work. Globalization has wrecked the backbone of the American economy. It has brought high gas prices and reduced wages. Bring back secure borders and pass a law against a national ID and against the establishment of a national database. Did I hear someone say, Give me liberty, or give me death?

Euphrates River to Be Dried Up

PROOF
we Are Living in tHe endtiMe

IN REVELATiON 16:12, THE BiBLE PREDiCTS THAT THE EUPHRATES RiVER WiLL BE dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East to invade Israel. This will happen at the time of the battle of Armageddon according to verse 16 of the same chapter. The battle of Armageddon will be the final battle during which Jesus will return and fight on the side of the nation of Israel. Immediately thereafter He will establish His kingdom and usher in His one-thousand year reign of peace. On January 13, 1990, the Indianapolis Star carried the headline Turkey Will Cut Off Flow of Euphrates for One Month. The article stated that a huge reservoir had been built by Turkey. While filling up the reservoir, the flow of the Euphrates would be stopped for one month and a concrete plug for a diversion channel built. These things have now been done. With this newly built dam, Turkey has the ability to stop the Euphrates River at will. The conditions for fulfilling this 1,900-year-old prophecy are now in place.

China Goes to War


iN REVELATiON

9:15-16, THE BiBLE PROPHESiES THAT AN ARMY OF 200 MiLLiON soldiers will launch a war which will kill the third part of men. Never in the history of the world until our present generation has there been a power on earth that could field 200 million soldiers. However, the late ruler of China Mao Tse Tung boasted in his diary that he could field an army of 200 million. The CIA World Factbook reported that in the year 2001 it was estimated that China had 200,866,946 men of military age and that this number is growing by 10 million per year.

any have stated that it is impossible to know whether or

not we are living in the last days before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. However, there is dramatic proof that we are living in the endtimes proof that defies coincidence.

Worldwide Numbering System Predicted


iN REVELATiON

13, THE BiBLE PROPHESiES THAT A WORLD DiCTATOR WiLL SOON rule over a world government. He will cause all people on the earth to receive a number without which they will be unable to buy or sell. We are seeing this prophecy fulfilled before our eyes in a most astonishing way. Nearly every human being in the world has now been assigned a number. In America, it is our Social Security number. In the past few years, we have seen this number extended to newborns. A child without a Social Security number cannot be declared as a dependent on an income tax return. We have seen the emergence of electronic money, shopping with credit cards, and many people actually urging the abolition of cash. All of these things could not possibly have been fulfilled until this present time. Only after the invention of the computer could such a worldwide numbering system be administered.

The Emergence of a New World Order


REVELATiON

13:7 AND DANiEL 7:23 PROPHESY THE ESTABLiSHMENT OF A WORLD government. The term New World Order has become a prevalent phrase in the worlds political culture. Mikhail Gorbachev made the term famous, and Pope John Paul II referred to it repeatedly. In the September 12, 1990 issue of the Chicago Tribune, our former president George Bush said, Iraq is the first test for the New World Order. He emphatically stated that the Iraq War was Saddam Hussein against the world. The United Nations troops are continually referred to as the multi-national forces. The decision has been made to establish an interdependent community of nations that will rule the world under United Nations authority. The Bible says that this will lead us into a great world government. The formation of this government is at hand.

MARK OF THE BEAsT 2008?

coVerstory

T
MAY 11, 2005
President George W. Bush signs the REAL ID ACT.

IrVIN bAXTEr Jr.

HE BIBLE PROPHESIES A TIME when individuals will not be able to buy or sell unless they take the mark of the beast. Between now and May of 2008, Americans will receive national ID cards without which we will be unable to hold a job or open a bank account. If we cannot hold a job or have a bank account, how much buying or selling will we be able to do? The question has to be asked: Will the National ID cardwhich will be implemented over the next two yearsbe the mark of the beast?
A LITTLE HISTOrY

For many years, advocates of socialistic big government have promoted the establishment of a national ID card. The American public has steadfastly resisted this encroachment upon individual liberties, not wanting to become a number in the governments computer. When it created the Department of Homeland Security after 9/11, Congress made it clear in the enabling legislation that the agency could not create a national ID system. In September 2004, then-DHS Secretary Tom Ridge reiterated, The legislation that created the Department of Homeland Security was very specific on the question of a national ID card. They said there will be no national ID card. However, when the Homeland Security Commission presented their recommendation for responding to 9/11, there it was as big as Dallas. On page 407 of the 9/11 Report, it states, Secure identification should begin in the United States. The federal government should set standards for the issuance of birth certificates and sources of identification, such as drivers licenses. Those who have long salivated over imposing a controlled society upon America grabbed the 9/11 baton and ran with it! Knowing that Americans did not want a national ID card, the Big Brother-ites decided to pass the National ID Act by stealth. First of all, they called it the Real ID Act, and then attached it to a huge appropriations bill for our troops in Iraq so that no member of Congress would dare vote against it. On May 10, 2005, the bill creating a national ID passed by a vote in the Senate of 100-0. The next day, May 11, 2005, President

COVERSTORY
George W. Bush signed the bill into law. Just like thatthe handcuffs were snapped around the wrists of Americans. The land of the free and the home of the brave became the land of the controlled and the home of the scared.
WHAT wILL THE REAL ID ACT ACTUALLY DO?

In laymans language, the Real ID Act mandates that all states in the U.S. must standardize procedures for the granting of drivers licenses and ID cards. The state must require before issuing a drivers license or ID card the following documentation: (A) A photo identity document, except that a non-photo identity document is acceptable if it includes both the persons full legal name and date of birth. (B) Documentation showing the persons date of birth. (C) Proof of the persons Social Security account number or verification that the person is not eligible for a Social Security account number. (D) Documentation showing the persons name and address of principal residence. Please notice that one of the mandatory requirements to get your ID card is the presentation of your Social Security number. Your Social Security number is what makes you trackable. It enables the government to enter information lots of information about youinto its database, and then retrieve it at the push of a button.
WHAT IF YOU DO NOT GET A NATIONAL ID?

national ID to board an airplane, enter a federal building where ID is required, open a bank account or hold a job. Furthermore, if you refuse to get this new national ID, you will not be able to legally drive your car (since your drivers license will now be your national ID). How will a person function in a modern society if he cannot drive, fly, hold a job or have a bank account? It is obviously going to be nearly impossible!
THE bIG LIE

Six prophecies will immediately precede the mark of the beast:


MIDDLE EAST PEACE PLAN

Defenders of the Real ID Act say that the Real ID is not a national ID. They deceptively argue that states do not have to comply with the federally set standards of the Real ID Act. Technically, they do not have to comply, but if they do not, none of their citizens can board a plane, hold a job or open a bank account. Oh, yes - one more thing. Any state that does not link its database, containing records on all drivers and ID holders, to the database of the other 49 states loses its federal funding. But, of course, it is not mandatory! Sounds very much like the voluntary income tax to me! Anyone who tells you that the Real ID is not a national ID is intentionally lying or is incredibly ignorant.
OTHEr NATIONS HAVE HAD NATIONAL IDS FOr A LONG TIME

This comes straight from the text of the Real ID Act: Beginning 3 years after the date of the enactment of this Act, a Federal agency may not accept, for any official purpose, a drivers license or identification card issued by a State to any person unless the state is meeting the requirements of this section. Notice that this paragraph sets the deadline for the final implementation of the national ID. It specifically sets May 11, 20083 years after the enactment of the law on May 11, 2005. It also states that a Federal agency may not accept for any official purpose a drivers license or ID card issued by a State unless the State is meeting the requirements of the Real ID Act. What does this mean? It means that you must have this new

The argument has been made that many nations have had a national ID for a long time, yet they have not taken the mark of the beast. Why should we believe that the National ID Act will usher in the mark of the beast in America? It is true that other nations have had national IDs for some time. However, America has been regarded as the worlds last bastion of freedom. If the U.S. succumbs to the tyranny of total governmental control, the last light of freedom on earth will have been extinguished. Furthermore, it can be demonstrated that the prophesied time for the enactment of the mark of the beast has arrived. There are six prophecies that will come to pass in the three and one-half years immediately preceding the imposing of the mark of the beast. All of these prophecies are in the process of coming to pass right now. This enables us to know that the mark of the beast is just ahead. America simply cannot allow the implementation of the national ID!

The Bible foretells a peace plan for the Middle East that will deal with the status of Jerusalem and the borders of the Holy Land. The plan will be sponsored and confirmed by the world community seven years before the Battle of Armageddon. It is at the Battle of Armageddon that Jesus Christ returns to earth, human government ends, and the 1000-year reign of the kingdom of God begins. Such a plan now exists. The Roadmap for Peace was authored in 2002 by The Quartet, consisting of the United States, the European Union, Russia and the United Nations. It was accepted by Israel and the Palestinians in June of 2003, but has not yet been implemented. The Roadmap is a peace plan for the Middle East and calls for settling the status of Jerusalem and the borders between Israel and the Palestinians. After Israels unilateral withdrawal from Gaza in August of 2005, the world community believed this action by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon might put the Roadmap for Peace back on track. The Quartet met at the UN on September 20, 2005, to reaffirm the worlds support for the Roadmap. We are not sure that the prophesied covenant has yet been confirmed, triggering the beginning of the final seven years. However, it does seem certain that the Roadmap for Peace is the mechanism for the confirmation of the covenan, whenever it does occur.
WOrLD WAr III

Another prophecy found in Revelation 9:13-20 states that a war will originate from the area of the Euphrates River and will ultimately result in the killing of one-third part of men. The vast majority of the Euphrates River is in Iraq where the U.S. presently has around 150,000 troops. This war that will kill one-third of mankind (two billion people) must be completed at least three and one-half years before the Battle of Armageddon. It appears that we are already in the beginning stages of that Euphrates River war.
GrEAT TrIbULATION IN WEST BANk

In Matthew 24:15-16, Jesus prophesied a time when the West Bank, the area which Israelis call Judea, will become

10

a place of horrible persecution and slaughter for Jews that remain there. Israel is presently building a wall, which will separate Israel proper from the area of Judea. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has publicly announced his intention to withdraw from Judea, leaving the Jews who choose to stay there at the mercy of the Palestinians. He says this withdrawal will be completed within four years. Jesus called the coming slaughter in Judea the great tribulation. He said, Then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor shall ever be. The three and one-half years of great tribulation is also the time when the mark of the beast will be enacted upon earth. The wall separating Judea from the protection of Israel is scheduled for completion by the end of 2007.
REbUILDING OF THE TEMpLE ON THE TEMpLE MOUNT

Temple Institute in Jerusalem. In June of 2005, the historic announcement was made by the recently reborn Sanhedrin in Israel: the decision has been made to begin the actual rebuilding of Israels Third Temple. The Sanhedrin announced they will build the temple offsiteprefabricating it like King Solomon built the First Temple. Then, when the political situation allows, they will move it to the Temple Mount for assembly.
TEMpLE MOUNT UNDEr A SHArING ArrANGEMENT

Several different places in scripture prophesy that the Jews will build their temple on the Temple Mount just before the final three and one-half years of great tribulation. Two of these prophecies are found in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 and Revelation 11:1-2. There has been no Jewish temple on earth since the Second Temple was destroyed in 70 AD. Over the past several years, the Temple Institute in Jerusalem has been building the furniture and recreating the utensils for temple worship in anticipation of the time when the temple will, in fact, be rebuilt. The construction of all the temple furniture is now completed and is on display at the

Revelation 11:1-2 depicts the Temple Mount in Jerusalem under a sharing arrangement forty-two months before the Battle of Armageddon. The Temple Mount is the most disputed 35 acres on earth. When negotiating the status of the Temple Mount at Camp David in July of 2000, Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak could not agree. Both contended that they just could not surrender control of the Temple Mount. Finally, President Clinton suggested that Jews and Muslims could simply share it, allowing all religions to freely worship there. It has now become generally accepted that a sharing arrangement, as described in scripture, is the only feasible solution to the Temple Mount problem.
TEMpLE MOUNT UNDEr INTErNATIONAL CONTrOL

Barak contended that it could work. He suggested that the holy site could be placed under the international supervision of UN peacekeepers. Amazingly, a Temple Mount under international control in the times just ahead was prophesied 2,000 years ago. In 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, the Apostle Paul said that the son of perdition (the Antichrist) would stand in the temple of God claiming to be God. This passage depicts the leader of the endtime world government (the UN) standing in the rebuilt temple claiming to be the ultimate sovereign authority over the Temple Mountjust as Barak suggested. Remember, all of the above prophecies are scheduled to come to pass during the three and one-half years immediately preceding the final three and one-half years known as the great tribulation. Since all of these prophecies are in process of fulfillment right now, it is obvious that we are just around the corner from the prophesied mark of the beast. Understanding this, it becomes absolutely imperative that the Real ID Act be repealed immediately!
WILL THE MArk OF THE bEAST bE ENACTED IN 2008?

When President Clinton suggested the sharing of the Temple Mount, Arafat said that it would not work. It would be impossible for Jews and Arabs to worship on the same 35 acres together, he said.

Unless it is stopped, the Real ID Act will be implemented by 2008. The mark of the beast may not be enacted immediately, but whenever it does come into force, it seems sure that the Real ID Act will be the mechanism used for its enforcementwhether that time comes in 2009, 2010 or 2011. We must stop the Real ID Act now before it becomes the mark of the beast! This is our last chance to save America!

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned Tehran that the international community is united in the dispute over Irans nuclear program. But a Tehran envoy defiantly rejected the warning. Rice hinted at escalating Security Council action should Iran disregard the councils demand that it freeze enrichment. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said sanctions had not been discussed and were not supported by Moscow. Chinas Vice Foreign Minister Dai Bingguo echoed Lavrovs remarks. The West refuses to rule out sanctions, and the U.S. says the threat of military action must also remain on the table.

According to Meir Amit, a former director of Israels Mossad intelligence agency, global civilization is on the verge of World War III - a massive conflict in which the Islamic world will attempt to impose its ideology on Western nations. Amit is one of the most esteemed figures in the international defense establishment. He said the terrorists in the world hit Spain, England, France. I call it World War III.

U.S.-backed South Korean forces because the two Koreas are technically still at war. The comments came as North Korea shows its displeasure with annual joint South Korean-U.S. military exercises. A spokesman for the Norths Korea Peoples Army (KPA) said distrust is high between the United States and North Korea. The 1950-1953 Korean War ended in a truce and not a peace treaty so the two Koreas are technically still at war.

Iran has threatened the United States with harm and pain for its role in hauling Tehran before the U.N. Security Council over its nuclear program. The United States and its European allies said that Irans nuclear intransigence left the world with no choice. The Security Council could impose economic and political sanctions on Iran. Iranian officials were not available to elaborate on what Iran meant by harm and pain.

China has warned the United States against sending false signals to Taiwan by playing down a recent decision by the island to do away with the National Unification Council.

Czech foreign minister Cyril Svoboda suggested that a short declaration on EU goals linked to the constitution could be what is needed to revive the document. Svoboda believes that during the prereferendum campaigns in France and the Netherlands, the EU constitution became hostage to several issues including competing ideas on what the union really stands for. He said what is needed is a declaration that would focus peoples attention on what they want the EU to be.

speed reforms for 2007 EU entry

EU diplomats are saying that the atmosphere has changed since last year, when No votes in French and Dutch referendums on the proposed EU constitution seemed to jeopardize the entry of Bulgaria and Romania. They are now urging the countries to accelerate reforms to thwart any further delays. The issue will be decided at a June meeting, but privately, EU diplomats say they expect the 25 governments to agree to the two countries entry on January 1, 2007, as scheduled.

A national identity card system will be a present to terrorists, criminal gangs and foreign spies, according to Daphne Park, one of Britains most respected former intelligence agents. Park said, The very creation of such an enormous national identity register will be a present to terrorists; it will be a splendid thing for them to disrupt and blow up. It will also provide valuable information to organized crime and to the intelligence services of unfriendly countries, she said.

Peers in the House of Lords have again defeated government proposals to make it compulsory to register for an ID card when renewing or applying for passports.

The government argued that the House of Lords should not oppose the bill again. Liberal Democrat peer Lord Phillips of Sudbury said that forcing people to register for an ID card when renewing or applying for a designated document such as a passport is compulsion by stealth.

A laptop with information on almost 200,000 current and former HP employees was stolen, which puts them at risk of identity fraud. The data includes names, addresses, Social Security numbers, dates of birth and other employmentrelated information. The stolen computer belongs to Fidelity Investments, which provides services to HP. In the last 13 months, more than 53 million personal records have been exposed in dozens of similar incidents. Consumers filed more than 255,000 identity theft reports to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in 2005.

RFID specialist Impinj has devised a way to make it easier for manufacturers and stores to put RFID tags on individual consumer items. Current tags are designed to go on pallets and crates. The new tags sport smaller antennas and rely on the same processor but use magnetic coupling to communicate. As a result, the tags cost less and measure as little as nine millimeters. Each tag contains a unique number; the tags can essentially act as serial numbers. Many fear that corporations, law enforcement agencies or governments will eventually use the tags to track peoples movements or purchases. In-Stat predicts 33 billion RFID tags in use by 2010.

The United States has been blocking military aid to Mexico since last fall because of a dispute over whether U.S. citizens should be exempt from prosecution by the International Criminal Court. The sanctions were imposed in October after Mexico became a signatory to the Hague-based ICC. Mexico is the 12th country from the Latin America-Caribbean area to be sanctioned by the United States under a law that was approved by Congress four years ago. The 2002 U.S. law is known as the American Servicemembers Protection Act. None of the sanctions have had an official announcement.

The Vatican is endorsing a proposal by radical Muslims for a weekly Islamic hour in schools with a strong Muslim presence. If a school has several Muslim children I dont see why their religion shouldnt be taught, said Cardinal Renato Martino, a minister in the Vaticans government. Several commentators are calling for an equal degree of freedom for Christians in Muslim countries.

Without it, you will not be able to drive, board an airplane, train, bus, enter any federal building, or open a bank account. It is extremely likely that you will not be able to get a job without it.

Lesson 1Modern Nations in the Bible
Many people have claimed that the United States is not mentioned in the prophecies of the Bible. This lesson not only gives absolute proof that the USA is in scripture, but also that it was foretold 2,600 years ago that she would come out of Great Britain. Modern nations are so clearly depicted in scripture that it will shock you that you have never noticed it before. This incredible lesson identifying modern nations in the Bible is absolutely essential if we are to understand the prophecies that are presently being fulfilled right before our eyes!

Lesson 5The Holy Roman Empire Revived

Lesson 2New World Order is World Government

The Holy Roman Empire has risen and fallen several times over the last 1,000 years. There have always been two leaders over this Holy Roman Empirea political leader and a religious leader. The Bible prophesies that the Holy Roman Empire will rise one more time in the immediate future. Once again, two leaders will head this revived Holy Roman Empire. According to Daniel and Revelation, the political leader will be the Antichrist, and the religious leader will be the False Prophet. Who will the False Prophet be? Find out in this lesson!

Why are the words Novus Ordo Seclorum Latin for New World Order on the back of the US dollar bill? What does this really mean? During the Gulf War in 1991, President George Bush said, The Iraq Crisis is the first test for the New World Order. President Bush then proceeded in the last two years of his presidency to use the term New World Order over 200 times in his speeches. This prophetic lesson proves that New World Order is world government, and that it is the endtime world government over which the Antichrist himself will soon rule.

Lesson 6The Antichrist and False Prophet

now! United Religions, a sister organization to the United Nations, has been increasingly instrumental in establishing unity between Christians and all of the worlds religions. When Jesus was asked by His disciples concerning the signs of His coming and the end of the age, the first thing he said was, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Jesus knew that the possibility of deception in the endtime would be extreme. This lesson explains where the present ecumenical trends will ultimately lead, and how they will affect you personally. It is absolutely vital that every person understand this prophecy!

Lesson 3The Road to Armageddon

The Antichrist and the False Prophet will soon rule the world, and they both are, almost positively, alive on this earth right now! There are over fifty specific prophecies concerning the Antichrist in the books of Daniel, II Thessalonians and Revelation alone. This lesson discusses the most prominent of these prophecies and provides a profile of the worlds future dictatorthe Antichrist. It also describes the miracle-working power of the False Prophet and how he will use this power to lead the people of the world into the New World Order of the Antichrist.

Lesson 9The Kingdom of God

Many people have heard the term Kingdom of God, but few really understand what it is. Throughout the entire Bible, this was the central message! John the Baptist preached the kingdom of God, Jesus preached it, and the apostles preached it. The last question that Jesus was asked before He left the earth was, Lord, will you at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? The coming kingdom of God is the message that God wants to convey to every person on earth. The crucial question iswill you be a part of it?

One of the most important prophecies for our time states that a covenant concerning the status of Jerusalem will be signed and then confirmed. The confirming of this covenant will begin a final seven-year period ending with the fateful Battle of Armageddon. The present dispute over ownership of Jerusalem will soon trigger this final battle This lesson deals with these questions: When do the final seven years begin? What will the confirming of the covenant be? What is the abomination of desolation? Will the Jewish people build their Third Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem? If so, how soon?

Lesson 7The Mark of the Beast

The Bible prophesies a time when the entire world will be computerized and all financial transactions will be done electronically. A global government will use this cashless system to try to control every person on earth. Every one of us will be assigned a number without which we will be unable to buy or sell. In order to obtain the number, we will be forced to pledge allegiance to the New World Order and the global religious system. This number is called the mark of the beast, and if we take it we will be eternally damned. What is this mark? Find out in Lesson 7!

Lesson 10The Rapture

The crowning event of the plan of God for the ages will be the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to the earth, when Jesus returns, born again Christians will be caught up to meet Him in the air. There are many opinions as to the timing of the rapture of the saints. Discover the important reasons why this event must be understood in order to prepare ourselves for the last of the last days. This lesson will both challenge your thinking and give you new insight into the most important event that could ever occur in your life!

Lesson 4The Four Horsemen

The identity of the four horsemen of the apocalypse has been shrouded in mystery for many years. However, God obviously intended for someone to understand these symbols since He included them in the Bible. This lesson clearly identifies the White Horse, the Red Horse, the Black Horse and the Pale Horse and proves that they are in the world right now! It also shows that these four invisible forces control the nations of the world and even affect your own life personally.

Lesson 8The Coming One-World Religion

The global dreamers say that there are three root causes of war upon earth: political conflicts, economic conflicts, and religious conflicts. They contend that if we had one-world government, one-world economic system and one-world religion, we would enter into a new era of peace. The Bible prophesies that a world religion will work hand-in-hand with the world government of the Antichrist. Present ecumenical trends are leading us into that one-world religion right

Mark of the Beast?


MANY YEARS AGO, I WAS IN THE CHECKOUT LINE AT A TARGET STORE. The total of my purchase came to $6.66. When the young lady operating the cash register saw the total, I heard her whisper under her breath, Mark of the beast.
IrVIN bAXTEr Jr.

quickly inquired, What did you say? I didnt say anything, she denied. I was sure I heard you say, mark of the beast, I said. With a sheepish grin, she confessed, I did. How much do you know about that? I asked. Not much, she admitted. I know quite a bit about it, I said. The line building up behind me did not allow for any more conversation, so I left my card and suggested she call me if she ever wanted to learn more. What do you think of when you hear 666 or mark of the beast? Occultism? Scary movie? Sign of the Devil?

monly used in scripture to symbolize Jesus Christ, but speaking like a dragon, which is used to symbolize the devil. In another place in scripture, this leader, who looks like Jesus but speaks like the Devil, is called the False Prophet. The prophecy indicates that this famous but fake religious leader will use his spiritual influence to convince the people of the world to give their allegiance to the Antichrist.

WHAT DOES THE BIbLE ACTUALLY SAY?

he term mark of the beast comes from a prophecy in the Bible written about 2,000 years ago. The prophecy is found in Revelation, chapter 13. The first eight verses of Revelation 13 foretell a World Government and a World Leader who will rule the world for forty-two months immediately before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Verses 7 and 8 describe the reign of the world leader known as the Antichrist like this: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Verses 11-15 describe the global religious system that will work hand-in-hand with the one-world government. The leader over this world religious system is described as looking like a lamb, com-

THE MArk OF THE bEAST

he one structure on earth today designed to be a world government is the United Nations. The number-one weapon the UN uses to enforce the compliance of nations to its edicts is economic sanctions. Verses 16-17 describe the use of economic sanctions by the endtime world government, not just against nations, but also against individuals. 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. This prophecy foretells a time when every individual on earth will be required to have a number without which he or she will not be able to buy or sell. In order to get this number, each person will be required to pledge allegiance to the reigning system of world government or to the man who will be ruling the world at that time. This will be the ultimate implementation of economic sanctions. It will be used to force obedience to the one-world government and the reigning world religious system.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six.

On the other hand, the prophecy states that any person who takes this pledge of allegiance will be sentenced to eternal damnation by God Himself (Revelation 14:9-11). Since this prophecy was written in approximately 96 AD, its fulfillment has never been possible - until now! The ability to give every person on earth a number and to control that persons ability to buy and sell has never before existed. With the invention of the computer and the birth of the Internet, the fulfillment of this ancient prophecy has become all too possible! How did the prophet know 2,000 years ago that someday all we would need to buy things would be a number? How did he know we would be able to travel around the world using just a number or a card to buy and sell? Once again, we should remember: this 2,000year-old prophecy could not possibly have come to pass until now.
6-6-6

The last verse of Revelation 13 comments about the mark of the beast: Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six. Scripture defines the mark of the beast as the mark of his name or the number of his name. Somehow, when the Antichrist appears, we will be able to calculate his name to equal 666. There has been endless speculation concerning names of leaders and names of governments that might be calculated to somehow equal 666. As of this time, we have not found a calculation that fulfills this scripture beyond doubt.
A CHIp UNDEr THE SkIN

The original Greek words in Revelation 13:18 that were translated 666 are: chi xi stigma, pronounced khee xee stig-ma. It is interesting that the last word stigma comes from a primary word stiz. It means:

to stick or prick: a mark incised or punchedfor recognition of ownership. (Strongs Greek Dictionary) Major problems exist with ID cards. One report said that twenty percent of all national ID cards are lost or stolen each year. ID card counterfeiting and identity theft continue to plague the attempt to establish secure ID. Applied Digital Solutions from Florida has provided a high-tech solution. A person can now have a computer chip about the size of a grain of rice injected under the skin with a needle. This injected chip stays with the individual for life and is virtually counterfeit-free and impossible to steal. For years, that technology has been used for ID in dogs, cats and other animals. In 2004, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the injection of chips under the skin of human beings for the maintenance of medical records. If a patient is unconscious, his records can still be accessed by scanning the chip embedded in his arm. Health conditions, present medications and allergic reactions are all available to health care providers. In Barcelona, Spain, the Baha Beach Club offers vacationers a means to pay for services without the bother of wallets or purses. After a painless injection, food and drinks are paid for with the wave of a hand. Thats right. A computer chip injected under the skin is being used for buying and selling right now. Remember, the word stigma means to stick or prick with a mark denoting ownership. Could this indicate that the mark of the beast will actually be given by the injection of a computer chip under the skin? The mark of the beast will be required for a person to buy and sell. The national ID, which will be implemented in America between now and 2008, will be required to hold a job or open a bank account. How much buying and selling will a person be able to do without a job or a bank account? Will the national ID soon become the mark of the beast?

tion system that works, says Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who helped introduce the REAL ID ACT, passed into law on May 11, 2005. B. Over 100 countries have longstanding compulsory national ID programs. Most countries ruled by socialism or totalitarian governments have not enjoyed much privacy or civil liberties. These countries have historically had the most stringent national ID systems in place i.e., Russia, Germany, and China. Privacy and civil liberties belong primarily to countries that have common law (typically British- or American-influenced legal systems). But fears of terrorism and identity theft have persuaded free people to give up their privacy and liberty to the false premise that a compulsory national ID will protect them. c. Citizens in most countries with non-compulsory national IDs nevertheless experience great disadvantages and difficulties if they do not fully participate in the system. De facto standards often rule the day. Private companies, banks, even government agencies often impose hardships and inconveniences on people who fail to produce noncompulsory identification. Many people who would otherwise refuse to enroll in a non-compulsory ID system eventually capitulate simply because it becomes so inconvenient NOT to join. It is called function creep. For instance, the original function of the Social Security Card number was limited to health benefits, but it has now crept into nearly all identification applications, and is even at the heart of the REAL ID ACT. d. Many countries that were lagging behind are now moving into cuttingedge positions with high-tech national ID programs. Information technology companies commonly lobby extensively to win identification contracts with prospective governments. Third-world countries take quantum leaps from primitive paper ID cards to smart cards with microchips, largely because somebody stood to make millions of dollars from the deal. FACT 2 - There is compelling evidence that the nations are presently collaborating to structure a global ID system where all national ID systems are interoperable. Belgium, Italy, and Estonia are leading the way in e-ID (electronic ID). A European e-Card Conference

took place in Brussels in April, 2006, where issues of interoperability, privacy and security were discussed. Major countries such as France, Germany and Spain are moving forward, and several nations that have been reluctant to enter the e-ID frontier are now engaged; i.e., Greece, Portugal, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Indonesia. a. The global economy plays a major role in the development of universal standards for database registries. International trade demands universal standards for identification of products and merchandise. Wal-Mart played a key role in the implementation of the Universal Product Code (UPC) over a decade ago when it required suppliers to track inventory using those barcodes. Now, Wal-Mart and the U.S. Department of Defense have mandated their vendors to utilize RFID (Radio Frequency ID). Wal-Mart, whose corporate database is twice as large as the entire Internet, issues corporate policies that eventually become de facto international law. With the help of the Department of Defense, RFID becomes the de facto standard for product identification world-wide. The exact same logic applies to the identification of human beings. If Wal-Mart begins to require any particular personal ID format, the rest of the world is soon to follow. B. Governments and global industry demand accelerated efforts for universal identification processes. In corporate and government offices, fingerprinting, iris-scanning, facial recognition, and other biometric measuring devices are common-place. Ultimately, however, about 1% of the populace has unreadable fingerprints. On a global scale, that amounts to 60 million people that would require something beside a fingerprint ID. Similar problems accompany other biometrics. Eventually, microchips and RFID will rule the day, using digitized biometric data as a verification back-up. FACT 3 - The world will soon have a global identification system. a. Take for example the ISO 7810 card standard. Never heard of it? Well, get this: Did you ever notice that all your credit cards are the same size? That standard is not set by your state, or even the federal government. It is an INTERNATIONAL standard. Similar international standards already define smartcards, RFID chips, readers and

more. As time passes, the marketplace will separate the winning manufacturers from the losers, and one triumphant global ID system will rise to indisputable domination. We cannot escape the realities that have been thrust upon us by international travel and Internet commerce. With over one billion passengers on international flights yearly, and over one billion international consumers regularly using the Internet, the pressure is already on for both a global ID and a global currency. Its coming. Count on it. B. International travel demands that passports be interoperable. The International Civil Aviation Organization already requires that all its 188 member nations issue machine-readable passports, on their standard, by 2010. However, most nations already comply due to the United States Visa requirements already in place. Worldwide, security agencies are demanding more and more speed, efficiency, security, and biometric verification. c. The link between passports and national IDs is significant. Passport technology is likely to become the de facto standard for all National IDs. A National ID card is an internal passport. It means you can live and move within that country. Why would governments want to create a National ID that is not interoperable with its own passport system? Malaysia and Brunei presently have the most advanced national ID card in the world. It is a multi-function 64K smart card. It is both a national identification card AND a passport, but that is not all. It is also their driving license, ATM cash card, Touch-n-Go travel card, medical records card, e-commerce authentication, iris-scans, digitized fingerprints, etc. The card is compulsory from age 12, but infants already receive them at birth as a replacement for birth certificates. De facto law sometimes

varies very little from compulsory law. d. The United States is imposing its standard on the world for identification. The U.S. Government has mandated that all international passports entering the U.S. must contain readable biometric identification. Singapore unveiled its first biometric microchip passport in April 2006 as a direct response to U.S. Visa requirements. And they are only one of many countries who are doing the same, for the same, singular reason the U.S. requires it. e. Members of the international community will ultimately comply with a global ID protocol. In April, 2005, France announced it would mandate compulsory biometric national ID cards by 2007 including digitized photographs and fingerprints. In March 2006, Spain awarded their ID project to a company that will produce 40 million smart cards to its citizens. China recently purchased 350 million smart cards for its people. As each country sequentially joins the biometric league, non-participating nations come under increasing pressure to conform or be cut off from the world community. FACT 4 - The biblical mark of the beast can be entirely implemented within a short time. The mark of the beast requires an identifying mark in the right hand or in the forehead according to Revelation 13:16. Is this technologically likely, or even feasible? Absolutely. a. The Bible prophecies call it a mark eight separate times. Each time, the Greek source word is charagma, which means a stamp, and imprinted mark, a thing carved or graven. The charagma comes from the Greek root word charax, which means sharpen to a point; a pale; a pointed stick. B. The standard of choice for a personal global ID system has already been identified as the VERICHIPa tiny microchip embedded in a glass case about the size of a grain of rice. That chip will contain all the ID system anyone needs WITHOUT having to carry a card. It is IMPLANTED by sticking it under a persons skin. The way it is inserted into the human body is by being carved with a syringe that has been sharpened to a point: it is a pointed stick that inserts (carves or graves) the chip into the hand or head of the person. Is this a perfect ancient and divine description of Applied Digital Solutions VERICHIP implantpunctured with a sharp syringe? Was this gadget prophesied 2,000 years ago? c. This device is now being produced by a publicly traded American corporation that has already contracted with 80 hospital systems nationwide for use in medical identification applications. Over 232 doctors are now offering the chip to their patients. According to an article in the Washington Post on March 15, 2006, Washington D.C. has been heavily targeted for Verichip marketing. Emergency rooms are being given free scanners so they will immediately begin chipping all patients. The company expects to be in over 200 hospitals by the end of 2006. d. As shown, the biometric-ready microchip is already available, and is in operation in many places around the world. The sophisticated Malaysian smartcard is only the beginning. An RFID chip implant could serve all those purposes and more: ID, passport, cash card, health card, etc. People would be able to pay all their bills simply by waving their implanted chip past an RFID reader. e. The global protocol, whatever it turns out to be, will be forced on all non-compliant nations and citizens. Again, the Bible prophecy states, 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). f. All global citizens will ultimately be forced into a global ID system. The right to privacy is one of our most cherished freedoms. As society has grown more complex and people have become more interconnected in every way, we have had to work even harder to respect privacy, the dignity, and the autonomy of each individual... We must develop new protections for privacy in the face of new technological reality. (Bill Clinton, 1997). Notice what Clinton did NOT say. He did not say abandon invasive technology. He said we must face the new technological reality. Like it or not, everybody will be required to participate in the global ID system. Even you! Oh! You say you wont? Good for you. There is a Bible prophecy for the abstainers, too. You will not be able to buy or sell. The worst news, prophetically, is that everyone who takes the mark will face the wrath of God. 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 14:9-11).

If the master planners have their way, every objectfrom shoes to carswill carry one of these tiny computer chips that can be used to spy on you without your knowledge or consent. Weve nicknamed these tiny devices spychips because of their surveillance potential. If youve been staying in touch with the news about RFID, you may already know who we are and something of the public battles we have fought to try to keep this technology off of consumer products and out of our homes. In case you dont know who we are and why we can make such claims with conviction, an introduction is in order.

In the pages that follow, well give you a ringside seat to some of the battles weve fought with companies like Benetton, Gillette, and retail giant Tesco. Youll see why Advertising Age says our presence has been felt from Berlin to Bentonville (corporate home of Wal-Mart), and youll also learn how we uncovered plans by companies to track consumers around stores, use RFID to spam consumers with personalized advertising, and even monitor what people do in their own homes. Were also suburban moms whove taken on some of the largest corporations in the world because we care about the future our children will inherit if this dangerous technology is unopposed. We believe consumers should know whats in store so we can work together to protect our privacy and civil liberties before its too late. We know that a Big Brother vision of the future sounds farfetched. We didnt believe it ourselves until we saw with our own eyes and heard with our own ears companies detailing their mind-boggling plans. We assure you that this seemingly impossible future is on the drawing board, and we promise that by the time you finish this book, you will be convinced, too. For nearly three years, we have devoted ourselves fulltime to combing every article, reading every white paper, pursuing every insider tip, and scanning through thousands of patent documents to piece together a picture of this planned RFID future. Weve attended trade shows, sat in on top level meetings, and had long talks with the people implementing these plans.

While some of these applications are slated for our future, others are already here, right nowand theyre spreading. Wal-Mart has mandated that its top one hundred suppliers affix RFID tags to crates and pallets being shipped to selected warehouses. Analysts estimate this one initiative alone has already driven close to $250 million worth of investment in the technology.4 Other retailers such as Albertsons, Target, and Best Buy have followed suit with mandates of their own. According to one industry analyst, there are now sixty thousand companies operating under RFID mandates and scrambling to get with the spychip program as quickly as possible.5 Adding fuel to the fire, the Department of Defense is also requiring suppliers to use RFID. In fact, government cheerleaders cant fall over themselves fast enough to support the technology. The Department of Homeland Security is testing the use of RFID in visas, and the Social Security Administration is using spychips to track citizen files. Not to be outdone, the Food and Drug Administration wants RFID on all prescription drugs, and the makers of Oxycontin and Viagra have already begun to comply. The FDA has also approved the use of subcutaneous RFID implants for managing patient medical recordsthe same implants being used to track bar patrons. You may have already brought a spychip home with you. If you own a toll transponder or a Mobil Speedpass, youre interacting with RFID every time you use it. And if you bought Procter & Gambles Lipfinity lipstick at a Wal-Mart in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, between March and June of 2003, you could have brought home a live RFID chip in the product packagingand unknowingly starred in a video, too! P&G is not the only company thats tested spychips on unwitting consumers. Gillette was also caught tagging packages of Mach3 razor blades with some of the 500 million (thats half a billion!) RFID chips it put on order in early 2003. Theres also evidence to suggest that other everyday products like Pantene Shampoo, Purina Dog Chow, and Huggies baby wipes may have been tagged with RFID chips and sold to unsuspecting consumers. Why would anyone want to keep such close track on everyday objects? The answer is simple. Businesses want the technology to give them complete visibility of their products at all times. Having this real-time knowledge would allow them to keep products on store shelves and know precisely whats in their warehouses. They also believe it could help them fight theft and counterfeiting. Theoretically, it could even eliminate the checkstand, since doorways could scan your purchases automatically when you leave the store and charge them to an RFID-based account. While some of these goals may sound appealing, the problem is what happens when spychipped products leave the store with usand find their way into other areas of our lives. Weve read every pro-RFID argument the industry can make, and well be the first to admit the technology could make things more convenient. RFID-enabled refrigerators really could keep track of containers of food, warn about expired milk, and generate weekly shopping lists. High-tech washing machines really could automatically choose appropriate water temperatures based on instructions encoded in RFID-enabled clothing labels. RFID really could help families recover lost petsand stolen possessions, too. But when we look at that future, we dont see a twenty-first

What is the REAL ID Act?

Passed by Congress and signed by President George W. Bush on May 11, 2005, the REAL ID Act mandates that ALL U.S. CITIZENS must obtain a National ID card by 2008. Without it you wont * drive your car * board a plane, train, bus * enter any federal building * open a bank account * hold a job. The Bible foretells a time when every person rich, poor, free, bond must have a mark or a number in order to participate in the economy. Will the National ID become the Mark of the Beast?
