a man endorsed sensus
Since time immemorial governments have shown their proclivity for control; they love to know who is who, and they are especially fond of knowing who isn’t paying taxes; which we find was the incentive behind Caesar Augustus’s world-wide census during the days before the birth of Jesus. (Luke 2:1. And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all-the world should be taxed.)
the census and the pestilence
King David’s lack of faith in God’s ability to save or keep safe the nation of Israel is implied by Joab’s reaction to David’s request:
V.3…And Joab said unto the king, Now the LORD thy God add unto the people, how many soever they be, an hundredfold, and that the eyes of my lord the king may see it: but why doth my lord the king delight in this thing?
By the way, this census didn’t end too well for Israel. 70,000 souls lost their lives due to a pestilence sweeping the land.
There are two occasions that I know of in the bible where God ordered a census, they can be found in Numbers 1:1 & 2 and Numbers 26:2.
Now when God asks for a census we can be quite sure there is some good reason behind it. However when man authorizes a census, chances is there’s a reprehensible motivation somewhere behind the move.
watch out for 666
Let’s update this and see what man is up to in our modern age, but more importantly why he’s up to what he’s up to regarding numbering the population. The bible tells us that Joab and his team took nine months and twenty days to “number the people”. I wonder how many more babies were born by the time he’d finished.
Not so today however, with the help of computers, the population of China, approximately one billion people, has been and continues to be “numbered”. And true to form, the men in control keep their Chinese subjects under one of the most repressive regimes on the face of the earth.
What many of us may not realize is that China is simply a test tube for the rest of the world. You see right now, today, there is an ongoing international “numbering of the people program”. The bible has a code name for it: 666. This electronic system of buying and selling is one of the principal signs of our times. The innocuous “national identity card” is at present the snare the fowler is using to number the peoples of the world in preparation for something infinitely more sinister than what King David had in mind.
You would be wise to take note that in the following bible verses Jesus says “he causes ALL to receive…”
Revelation 13:16, 17. 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.
Verse 16 appears prophetic if one stops to consider how easily each citizen has been snared into their respective government’s national identity program. Or should I say their government’s international identity program.
Revelation 12:14…The keys are our wilderness
Don’t be alarmed, we haven’t yet reached the endgame. There is still time to uncover the trap and once exposed we can find a way out. The next step in this world-wide mark of the beast numbering system is a user friendly microchip; to be injected under the skin of the unsuspecting human. However in Revelation chapter 12 there is a key that holds a way of escape from this damnable microchip.
Revelation 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
Now the woman in this verse represents the body of believers. So what or where is the wilderness? Well, with a world-wide numbering system in place, where no one can buy or sell; which of course includes travel, medical, food, electricity…umm, you name it, it’s covered. Where on earth could the body of believers run to? Ok, so Moses ran into the wilderness, and so did Elijah. Yes, but they were prophets. Well the same power they had has been promised to you also, remember the Holy Ghost and Acts 2:17? However every one of God’s promises has a key attached. And the key to receiving God’s power for the hour is faith, and faith only comes by reading and believing His Word. It’s not too late, but one day soon it may be. So no time to lose, get out that Bible and start reading and actively participating in what the Word of God is directing you to do.
“The Spirit World is our wilderness and the Keys of the Kingdom open the way”.
