AADHAAR: Mark of the Beast Comes to INDIA: (Mark of the Beast, PART FIVE)

If you haven’t done so already, please read my following FOUR blog posts, as they will help to better explain in much broader detail about what this current FIFTH blog post is talking about, concerning The Mark of the Beast “System”! They are ALL part of a Mark of The Beast “Series”, listed IN ORDER! They can be found HERE:

The current post you’re now seeing is PART FIVE of the 5-Part Series! And it ofcourse centers around what’s now happening in INDIA! Basically, INDIA’S version of the “Social Credit Score” is much, much worse! Imagine for a minute if China’s Social Credit Score (in and of itself) was “high on crack” and that’s pretty much what INDIA’S version of it is! Basically, if you thought CHINA’S version was bad, just wait until you hear about INDIA’S version of “The Social Credit Score!”

Here is both a Christian video commentary AND an official India government website that better explain India’s version of it in more detail: [Please note: the “Hindu-run” India government website down below the video does NOT talk about the ETERNAL SPIRITUAL DANGERS of AADHAAR and tries to tout it off as a “good thing!” SO BEWARE, FOLKS!]

https://uidai.gov.in/

But folks, one thing is certain. In China, a low social credit score means you can’t fly out of the country, board a train, attend prestigious universities or do many OTHER things!

Although right now, China is trying to tout it off as a “humanistic approach”, or claiming to encourage “better human and/or consumer *behavior* in China”. For example, it’s a “point system” where you can get “negative points” for:

  • Jaywalking
  • Not paying bills on time
  • Smoking in a non-smoking area
  • Bad driving and/or not stopping in front of crosswalks
  • Trying to ride trains with no tickets
  • Spending too long playing video games
  • Having high credit card debt?
  • Wasting money on frivolous purchases
  • Posting on social media (negative things about gov’t)
  • Friends/family members of your posting or saying negative things about Gov’t
  • Refusing to serve in the military
  • Fraud or embezzlement
  • Spreading fake news
  • ETC.

So sure, on the “surface”, the “Social Credit Score” might seem like a “good thing”. But over time, it will become more and more “Orwellian”. Now….. for those of you who don’t know what I mean by that statement, please read the book entitled “1984” by George C. Orwell that was published in June of 1949! Yes, the book was written a long time ago but interestingly enough, you’d think it was written just a couple of years ago since practically almost everything Orwell talked about in that book CAME TRUE in just the last few years! WOW! You can buy it here on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/1984-Signet-Classics-George-Orwell/dp/0451524934?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_1

Therefore, China’s “Social Credit Score” starts out “innocently enough” and then gets more and more invasive and “Orwellian” over time. But INDIA’s Social Credit Score system (called AADHAAR) by comparison, is far, far worse! Because INDIA’s “Social Credit Score” system seems to NOT ONLY be based on “behavior” but on behavior, finances AND loyalty of the Gov’t/Gov’t System!

Here’s a list of things that are “tied in” to the AADHAAR system:

  • A 12-digit number
  • Banking
  • Travel/Passports
  • Purchases
  • Bill Payments
  • Medical Payments
  • All Personal Document Information
  • Voter Card Linking
  • Monthly Pension
  • Digital Life Certificate
  • Mobile Number
  • Driver’s License
  • Investments
  • Existing Bank Account Holders
  • Proof of Address & Identity
  • PAN Card & It Return (whatever that means?)
  • ETC.

And according to ANOTHER India website (http://vikaspedia.in/e-governance/online-citizen-services/government-to-citizen-services-g2c/all-about-aadhaar/17-benefits-of-aadhaar-card), here is what the “proponents” of AADHAAR have to say about it:

“Aadhaar program was launched with a main objective to provide **UNIVERSAL IDENTITY** to every Indian resident. People can now get the card with much ease as its acceptance as a mandatory document for various initiatives has been officially made. In addition to this it will help in reducing the corruption since every individual carries only **ONE UNIQUE NUMBER**.

Considering the increasing acceptance of Aadhaar card it is must for everyone to get it issued. It is believed that the card will further be given more importance as more and more government *schemes* are being launched requiring it as a MANDATORY DOCUMENT“.

Did you read that, folks? They want every Indian citizen to have a UNIVERSAL I.D.! And they will each have ONE UNIQUE NUMBER! And this “SYSTEM” will eventually be MANDATORY!

Now remember folks: The Devil (Satan) wants to STEAL, KILL & DESTROY! The last book of the bible, Revelation, says that “Satan is angry and knows he has but a short time”. In other words, Satan is ANGRY with ALL of mankind BECAUSE he knows that he has a VERY short amount of time before he and his army are DEFEATED by Jesus and Jesus’s heavenly army DURING The Battle of Armageddon! Therefore, Satan KNOWS he must get in as MUCH spiritual deception into the world and INTO as many people’s HEARTS/BRAINS as he possibly can “while he still has time!” That’s WHY things on the Earth are getting eviler and eviler and eviler BY THE DAY!

So now think about this, folks. Really, truly think about this. IF you are (or theoretically were) a Chinese citizen today living in CHINA, and don’t think that “communism” is such a good thing AND you were a “Christian”, you would (or will soon be getting) a VERY LOW “Social Credit Score” in NO TIME! Are you prepared to handle that? Can you and/or your family deal with that? Is your faith in Christ STRONG ENOUGH to WITHSTAND the “Social Credit System” and any consequences that come from “getting a LOW SCORE?” I pray that it IS!

And IF you are (or theoretically were) an Indian citizen living today in INDIA, you would soon (or will soon) discover that NOT enrolling in the Biometric AADHAAR System will soon put YOU and/or your family at “odds” with the India Gov’t! And WHEN and IF that happens, AND you are a “Christian” (part of the Indian MINORITY), can you just IMAGINE what’s gonna happen to you (as a Christian and/or as a “Gov’t Resister?”) Are YOU and/or your family prepared to deal with the CONSEQUENCES? Is your faith in Christ STRONG ENOUGH TO RESIST the AADHAAR SYSTEM? I pray that it IS!

My brothers and sisters in Christ (all around the world), you MUST understand THIS: No ONE country is going to NAME the Mark of the Beast “Mark of the Beast”. That would make things too easy! Too many people would know and catch on as to what it is! Satan KNOWS this! Therefore, they will “name it” SOMETHING ELSE! China calls it “The Social Credit Score”, India calls it the “AADHAAR SYSTEM”. America, Europe, U.K., & Canada may call it the “UNIVERSAL I.D. System”. But folks, the PRINCIPLE behind the system will still be the same: ABSOLUTE GLOBAL DOMINATION OF ALL THE EARTH’S INHABITANTS BY *ONE UNIFIED, UNIVERSAL SYSTEM!*

Here’s YET ANOTHER interesting aspect that alot of people haven’t mentioned. All of the “DATA” from both China’s Social Credit Score System AND from India’s AADHAAR Systems (according to my best intellectual and spiritual understanding) will be sent to the U.N. (United Nations!) Which isn’t really surprising since the U.N. is ALL ABOUT “Global Governance” (more about that later).

But folks, that’s really quite telling. In the “Left Behind” novels by Tim LaHaye & Jerry Jenkins, there is a “Global Force” called G.C. (standing for Global Community), which I believe was based off the actual U.N.! So in light of that, it’s interesting that all of the DATA shall be sent to the U.N.! Now…….for those of you who are wondering, where is the U.N. main headquarters located? I’m glad you asked! It’s located in New York, New York (United States). But there’s other “branches” of the U.N. that meet in other parts of the world (like in Switzerland, for instance). More about that later, as well.

The novel “1984” by British author George Orwell calls the government “Big Brother”. And on the most used slogans in the book says, “Big Brother Is Watching You”. And it’s almost like Mr. Orwell could see the future. Because most recently, the American gov’t got in cahoots with the American people over it’s NSA (Natural Security Agency) spying program (thanks to the whistle blower Edward Snowden).

But here’s what’s interesting though. Almost every country of the world likely has its OWN version of “NSA”; each country just calls it something different. But in fact, many people in the world have wondered WHY there is such a need for such “total surveillance” of its citizens. One can see “cameras” now, out in public, almost everywhere, especially in grocery stores, banks and roadways.

Most people are told Oh, all the cameras are just for security purposes only, in order to cut down on crime. And while the notion of a surveillance state doesn’t seem all that bad on the surface, (afterall, there DOES seem to be a rising crime rate in almost every country of the world, now) the “global elite” have a much more “sinister agenda” in mind……total surveillance and control of all of its citizens (even the “homeless ones”, if you can believe it). In fact, I could even imagine them going so far as to eventually place secret spy drones in American “Amish” or global “indigenous communities”. They want to leave NO corner of the Earth untouched and “non-surveilled”.

And while many of the “global governance programs” APPEAR to have humanity’s best interests at heart on the surface, like I said, behind these programs is a “weapon of deceit”. These global leaders are no doubt BLINDED BY SATAN and Satan’s Agenda of “worldwide dominance”. In fact, most people of the world today don’t even REALIZE that Satan HIMSELF is the “driving force” behind CERN, “dark matter”, and A.I. Technology like “Sophia”, etc.

In fact, in many ways, Satan kind’ve reminds me of Absalom (David’s “vain son” who wanted to be King IN PLACE OF DAVID). He was prideful, arrogant, thought he was better than David, sought to usurp David and David’s position, etc. And he’d sit outside the town gate and “rally the people”. He’d find out what they didn’t like about being David’s subjects and promised to give them “better leadership” and “better outcomes”. In other words, Absalom had them thinking that HE, Absalom had THEIR best interests in mind. But in reality, he only wanted glory for HIMSELF, *NOT* for any of THEM, he was just USING them for HIS own gain!

And so it is with Satan! Because once Satan gets done USING these global leaders and all who worship him to achieve his ultimate goal(s), he won’t have any use of them anymore and will swiftly abandon them! Only, most of those folks will realize that fact TOO LATE! Because like I’ve said in SEVERAL posts before, ONCE A PERSON TAKES THE MARK OF THE BEAST, THAT’S IT, THEY’RE FINISHED, THEY’RE DONE, GAME OVER, THEY’VE LOST THEIR SOULS FOR ETERNITY AND THERE’S NO ETERNAL HOPE FOR THEM ANYMORE, THEY’LL BE SENT TO BURN IN THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR ETERNITY, WITH **NO WAY OUT***, FOREVER & EVER.

Many people wonder how Satan so successfully got 1/3 of the Angels to rebel. Look no further than in the biblical account of David Vs. Absalom and it will all become very apparent. Just like many people wonder how Absalom so successfully got the people to rebel against David. Same way Satan successfully got 1/3 of the Angels to rebel. Same principle, same model, same modus operandi (mode of operation). Chillingly enough, both Absalom and Satan had MANY things in common. I cringe, just to think about it! In fact, here’s all the similarities:

  • They were the “favorite” (Pre-Satan was God’s favorite angel – BEFORE the fall – just like Absalom was David’s favorite son!)
  • Both were given “extremely high honor”
  • Both were “extremely handsome” (Note: Pre-Satan was only “beautiful” BEFORE the fall but NOT AFTER!)
  • Both were “prideful and arrogant”
  • Both were “rebellious”
  • Both tried to “usurp higher authority”
  • Both tried lies, pressure & manipulation to get their way
  • Both were CURSED after their “fall from grace”

But folks, how many “Absaloms” (Absalom-like people) or “Delilahs” (Delilah-like people) have you known in your life? Someone that “appears” to have your best interests at heart but yet, doesn’t really? Because they’re only looking out for their OWN neck and not YOURS? [Note: The Delilah I speak of is Old Testament Delilah – the Philistine woman who took down Samson!] And you oftentimes didn’t find that out UNTIL it was “too late?” And by then, the collateral damage was DONE?

Folks, that’s what many of today’s U.N. government heads are like. They “appear” to have our best interests in mind. But behind closed doors, what every country’s government TRULY wants is “global governance”. Ofcourse, the average global citizen isn’t quite “up” for that just yet, so that’s WHY the global elite has to use “media events”, “social media”, “TV”, “music”, “movies”, “books”, “radio”, “news”, “the entertainment industry”, “colleges and universities”, “magazines and newspapers” etc. to try to SHAPE OUR GLOBAL VIEWPOINT!

Several years ago, hardly nobody liked the U.N. and many saw it as an “evil organization”. Fast forward to 2018 and it now seems like more and more people are starting to see the U.N. as a “good thing”, a “humanitarian thing”, something that actually “benefits mankind”. And in some ways, the U.N. (ironically enough) DOES benefit mankind. But for the most part, there is always “the agenda BEHIND the agenda” and most people aren’t told of that or they’re too busy watching the latest TV show or movie to pay it much attention and that’s exactly what Satan and the global elite are banking on! MARK MY WORDS!

Now on to my next “spiel”. The United States of America {and possibly a few other countries} (as far as I know) are now working on a program called “ID 2020” or the “RealID”. And it has to do with “Biometrics”. And from my best understanding, this “RealI.D.” will be tied in to everything from Driver’s Licenses, Passports, and eventually, into banking and jobs, more than likely. Now, am I saying that “RealI.D.” IS the “Mark of the Beast” in America? No, not necessarily but I can definitely see it as a PRECURSOR to such! 

But yet, ONE thing is apparent through ALL of this, folks! ALL governments of the world eventually want a CASHLESS SOCIETY! Why? So they can then make ALL the money of the world DIGITAL, into a global, centralized “one world government order” DATABASE! “Okay, so how can we can DELAY THAT, then?”, some may be asking. How? Simple. BY STARTING TO PAY FOR EVERYTHING IN CASH! And then, if cash paying BECOMES A COMEBACK (specifically, a GLOBAL COMEBACK), then states and governments of the world will have NO CHOICE but to “DELAY” the “ELECTRONIC/DIGITAL SYSTEM”, more than likely!  

Because folks, let me tell you something. Once a state, city-state and/or country DOES go COMPLETELY “cash-free”, and ALL cash is “doing away with”, the people and citizens OF that state, city, city-state and/or land/government/province lose ALL the personal financial power in their lives and the personal financial power is then COMPLETELY shifted over TO the “gov’t authorities” (specifically, the global governing authorities). Do you see what I mean by that, folks? Do you see where I’m going with this at all?

I DO apologize though, in hindsight, for writing SO MANY POSTS about this subject, folks! I know that some of you are probably getting tired of hearing about it and of my writing about it SO VERY MUCH! But people as a whole are just SO unprepared for all of this (ESPECIALLY non-Christian people!) And they need to know THE TRUTH, THE REALITY of such things! 

Heck, even many “minority” Christians THEMSELVES living in “majority-Hindu India” or “majority-communist China” right now don’t yet see “AADHAAR” or “The Social Credit Score” as any real spiritual “threat” to them, as I’m told by another source that their “Christian minority church leaders” (as a whole) are NOT warning them of such End Times Dangers! Folks, that’s sad! Because if India’s or China’s Christian minority church leaders take the issue so lightly, can you IMAGINE just how LIGHTLY their “American, Canadian, South American, and European” counterparts” will take it, as well? 

Folks, we’re seeing “SIGNS” of the soon unveiling OF the “Mark of the Beast/Mark of the Beast System” and OF the soon unveiling of *THE ANTICHRIST* **all around us** in today’s world! Are YOU paying attention, folks? Are YOUR family and friends and coworkers paying attention? If not, time to start PAYING ATTENTION, folks! Signs of the times are ALL AROUND US! Not JUST of the soon coming global economic collapse, but several other things, too. 

IF Jesus Christ were to return to the Earth today, would YOU be ready? Would the ones that were close to you be ready? If not, WHY? And if not, then time to PRAY TO BE READY and “worthy” in the Lord’s site, folks! Cause time won’t delay any longer, the Lord’s Wrath upon the Earth won’t delay any longer! 

Jesus, I pray for all the citizens of China and India and the world beyond. And if a soul isn’t yet ready for you, Lord, I pray that you will MAKE that soul ready for you! I pray that you will OPEN UP PEOPLE’S SPIRITUAL EYES as to what’s REALLY going on, behind the world’s stage and that you will lift MANY lukewarm Christians OUT OF THEIR *SPIRITUAL SLUMBER!* Also: Please give ALL Christians of the world the KNOWLEDGE and the STRENGTH to *ENDURE TILL THE END!* Amen“. 

 

 

**VERY IMPORTANT!!! The Coming Tribulation/Persecution: Revelation 2:10**

As more and more Christians in general society and the workplace are being persecuted by those with an agenda of “unrestrained perpetual sin” [i.e. the openly homosexual activists that are currently fighting for gay marriage rights, as well as Atheist and/or Satanic activists who want to stamp out as much of Christianity in public and in private as much as humanly possible], I am constantly brought back in my mind to the words of Revelation 2:10 which state: “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life“.

[Rather or not the 10 days in question is an ACTUAL 10 days or a “figurative” 10 days is up to debate, as many bible scholars think “they” have the answer and the number of their answers are as many as the number of ice cream flavors at Baskin Robbins, if not even more so, lol].

There’s also 3 other bible passages that deal with this topic as well: (Luke 21:12, Matthew 10:19, and Mark 13:11), which I’ll quote down below. Because lets face it, if you’re one of those Christians who thought that going through the great tribulation/testing of your faith met staying at home, indoors, and doing nothing BUT reading your bible and praying all the time, you’re in for QUITE a rude awakening! Truth be told, there WILL be persecution on every Christian…….atleast, every TRUE biblical-roots Christian, that is. Now, the DEGREE of persecution is going to differ from person to person, depending on the circumstances.

But before you go ANY further into this post, please watch the following enactment video called : “Would You Die For Your Faith in Jesus Christ [Yeshua]?” at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fj1d9h7IL0I

Have you ever really noticed how the Devil NEVER, EVER persecutes the WORLDLY CHURCHES? No, in fact, all the WORLDLY churches (such as Joel Osteen’s Lakewood, Texas prosperity church, Benny Hinn’s church, etc.) are some of THE RICHEST churches IN THE ENTIRE WORLD! Why is that, do you think? On other other hand, pastors who do NOT agree with gay marriage etc. oftentimes get reprimanded and/or lose their jobs!

And just like Revelation 2:10, Luke 21:12 states: “But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues [interesting it says TO and not FROM…odd?], and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake“.

However, ONCE a Christian is “arrested” and/or “severely persecuted” for being a Christian (or consequently, for whatever “erroneous charges” that the dark side can come up with as a RESULT of a person being a true Christian who tries to follow the Lord’s will in their lives, NO MATTER WHAT), the bible gives us VERY CLEAR instructions on WHAT we are to do and say WHEN that happens. The following two bible passages command us to do the following:

Matthew 10:19 says: “But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak

Mark 13:11 states: “But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost“. 

And DO you, as a true bible-believing Christian, ever get that creepy feeling in your stomach that somebody (somebody from the dark side of forces) is watching you and just WAITING to punish you somehow for doing the Lord’s will and/or for being a true Christian that follows the bible and supports Israel/Jerusalem/bible prophecy?

Conspiracy theorists talk all the time about concentration camps for Christians someday, while others even suggest that beheading will someday become the preferred form of capital punishment in this country (America). As to how much of that stuff is actually true, one can only guess. BUT…..If I don’t write another post on here in a very long time or you don’t hear back any replies from me for a really long time if you make a comment on here, then that probably means something controversial happened and please pray for me.

Also: Please pray for me and ALL fellow Christians all over the world that are being persecuted for Jesus’s namesake.

However, also please rejoice somewhat whenever a person is persecuted for Jesus Christ’s namesake! For Jesus Christ said the following in Matthew 5: 11-12Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you”.

Romans 5:3-4 state: “And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope”.

However, you also might be wondering WHY the good Lord makes us suffer forms of persecution in our lives. That is because he wants to test our faith and even try to strengthen it and make our faith EVEN STRONGER!

It’s really no different than car companies crash-testing cars that they make. They keep crashing them over and over again in the “testing process” to learn how to make them more crash-safe and/or durably crash-free. So it is with Jesus Christ and our faith. He sometimes allows us to suffer persecution SO THAT we will learn *perseverance*.

And then, if/when things get REALLY bad, it’ll then seem “normal” and be like a walk in the park for us, faith-wise, since God will have already given us by then the necessary emotional, mental, physical and spiritual tools to deal with persecution and opposition during the previous “crash-testing” process of our faith. Because lets face it, when we already HAVE everything we need, we feel as though we have no need for God in our lives, it’s a PRIDE thing! But whenever things go bad in our lives, OH HOW WE SURE HAVE NEED OF THE GOOD LORD THEN, am I right? 😉

Therefore, like it or not, God uses suffering as a means to draw us closer to HIM! And he does it for our own spiritual good! (Even if, during the TIME of the persecution, it doesn’t feel or seem like that). Remember the words of God in Hebrews 13:5 which state: “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee“. So in other words, draw close to God/Jesus Christ at ALL times (ESPECIALLY during times of suffering) and he will draw close to YOU!

Remember how Abraham was tested in the Old Testament? Abraham loved his son Isaac SO MUCH (the son that God MIRACULOUSLY gave to Abraham and Sarah in their OLD AGE), that God was no longer sure whom Abraham loved more, his son or God. That’s WHY God had to test Abraham and see where Abraham’s heart truly was. And then, after Abraham had proven himself faithful and that he placed God even above his own son, God rewarded him DILIGENTLY.

And let us also not forget Job in the Old Testament. He was a GENTILE, yet God was bragging about how faithful of a servant Job was, all across the board. Satan the Devil was angry and more or less said to God “oh yeah? Take away everything he owns and he will curse thee, I am sure”. So God took Satan up on the challenge and guess what? Job lost everything in one day (his cattle, his 10 children, his money, even the love and respect of his own wife!) But still, Job still kept the faith. And God eventually gave back to him ten-fold what he had lost during the “crash-testing” process of his faith. That’s where the popular saying comes from which states “the more you suffer, the more you gain”.

However, SOME people easily give up at the first sign of persecution and it’s THOSE few people I’d like to pray for, today: someone says something not so nice to them on their Christian witnessing Youtube page, an open homosexual at the workplace calls them out for being so “hateful” towards the homosexual lifestyle, a non-Christian friend, family member or stranger calls them “crazy” for believing in things they can’t so-called physically hear or see, they see more and more things in the News about “Christians” being PUNISHED for their beliefs and so they’re too afraid to profess their “Christian beliefs” in public or amongst their friends.

Then, after awhile, they just stop trying to live for Jesus Christ altogether, thinking to themselves that it’s “too hard”, “too much of a burden” in today’s world, and try to mildly blend INTO the world. They think that as long as they don’t become a full-fledged Satanist/Hindu/Wiccan/Buddhist/Atheist/etc. but still merely “believe” in God, that God will forgive them and that they won’t go to hell/eternal condemnation after they die. But sadly, those folks are mistaken. Because HERE is what Jesus Christ has to say about “lukewarmness” in people and in churches:

Revelation 3: 15-17 states: “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”.

However, to those that ENDURE persecution and OVERCOME it by MAINTAINING and even STRENGTHENING their faith, Jesus Christ has THIS to say:

“To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne” – Revelation 3:21

“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life” – Revelation 2:10

“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him” – James 1:12
