President Reagan… “That’s the Mark of the Beast”

March 5, 2012   |   Category: Endtime Magazine Articles   |   Tags: , , , , ,

On May 13, 1997, Stephen Moore, economist at the CATO Institute, testified before the Judiciary Committee of the US House of Representatives Subcommittee on Immigration and Claims concerning the establishment of a national identification system. He reminded the committee what happened when a national ID was proposed during a cabinet meeting of the Reagan administration in 1981.

Screen Shot 2014-08-05 at 9.46.53 AMThen-Attorney General William French Smith argued that a perfectly harmless ID card system would be necessary to reduce illegal immigration. A second cabinet member asked: why not tattoo a number on each American’s forearm? According to Martin Anderson, the White House domestic policy adviser at the time, Reagan blurted out “My God, that’s the Mark of the Beast.” As Anderson wrote, “That was the end of the national identification card during the Reagan years.”

 

Most Republican politicians today seem to be bending over backwards to cloak themselves in the Ronald Reagan mantle. Yet some of those same politicians are strong proponents of the national ID card called the Real ID. Shouldn’t we at least pause a moment to consider the wisdom of one of America’s greatest presidents?

 

I know that, as soon as you start quoting the Bible, some politicians immediately begin to stammer and backpedal. God forbid that anyone should actually take the Bible seriously! And to believe a 2,000-year-old prophecy foretelling a time that a person would need a number or an ID card in order to hold a job—enabling the person to “buy or sell”, well…how uneducated could you possibly be?

 

But let’s humor President Reagan for a moment. What was the biblical basis that caused him to say, “My God, that’s the Mark of the Beast?”

 

The prophecy is found in 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.”

 

This thirteenth chapter of Revelation describes the world as it will be three and one-half years before the Battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Jesus to earth. Verses 1-8 describe a world government that will be in power. Verses 11-14 describe a global belief system that will be put in place to support the world government and to prevent war. The economic system described in verses 16-17 will be used to force the people of the world to submit to the control of the world system. If a person refuses to submit to the world government and its interfaith ideology, the individual will not be permitted to hold a job. It will simply be economic sanctions, the favorite tool of the world community in forcing compliance to its edicts, on an individual level.

 

Reagan was a student of the prophecies of the Bible and was obviously well aware of the “Mark of the Beast” prophecy.

 

Let’s be serious for a moment. We are watching the emergence of a system of world government (global governance) right now. After all, we are being continually indoctrinated concerning the necessity and the virtues of globalization. We already have the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization, the World Court and, of course, the United Nations. The terms World Community and International Community slip off our tongue almost without thinking.

 

And somehow, we have become very accustomed to such radical statements as President George W. Bush saying that Muslims, Jews and Christians all worship the same God and that all three religions are equally valid. It doesn’t shock us when President Obama chooses Muslims, Jews, homosexuals and Evangelicals to pray at our nation’s inaugural services. It seems perfectly normal when former British Prime Minister Tony Blair establishes the Tony Blair Faith Foundation and lectures on Faith and Globalization at Yale University. The new philosophy of religious inclusiveness is progressing very nicely.

 

And now for the crux of the matter

The 2,000-year-old prophecy states that a time will come when people on the earth will be given a number without which they will be unable to buy or sell.

 

First, such a system has never been possible until right now. Only with the invention of the computer and the birth of the Internet could this prophecy be fulfilled. I wonder how the writer of Revelation knew to predict such a system way back in 96 AD?

 

Secondly, just such a system is being implemented in the United States and in most other countries on earth right now. The deadline for enforcement of a national ID card in America is January 15, 2013, just a few months away.

 

But wait! Can any intelligent person seriously believe that prophecies written in the Bible 2,000 years ago are actually coming to pass right now? ­­­­­­

 

According to a poll conducted by Time/CNN, 59 percent of all Americans believe the prophecies in the Book of Revelation will come to pass, and 20 percent believe they will be fulfilled in their lifetimes.

 

It is obvious that President Ronald Reagan believed it and nixed the idea of a national ID before it could get any traction during his administration.

 

So, is the Real ID card the Mark of the Beast?

The Real ID is not the Mark of the Beast. However, it is establishing a system that could be used to implement the Mark of the Beast as soon as the prophesied world government fully comes to power.

 

Can it be stopped if it’s prophesied?

The Mark of the Beast is going to be implemented as the enforcement mechanism in the coming one-world government. However, there will be some nations in dissent who will not comply with the system of global governance. It is possible that the United States could be one of these opposing nations.

 

 

What should be done?

The Real ID Act should be repealed, and all other forms of a national ID should be permanently outlawed. Not only is the numbering of human beings prophesied in the Bible, but also a national ID is the critical tool that allows a totalitarian government to exercise total control over its citizens. Ask Adolf Hitler! Ask Ronald Reagan! And ask our forefathers that have adamantly refused the adoption of a national ID for the last 235 years.

 

 

A final note to Senators and Congressmen

Lawmakers, we are depending on you. Please do not be intimidated by those who say we must have a national ID to stop illegal immigration. Don’t be influenced by those who are determined to bring the American people under their control.

 

Please, do the manly thing! Be strong and very courageous. Preserve individual liberty. Repeal Real ID. And do not approve the mandatory use of E-verify.

 

If you are not successful in repealing Real ID, simply make sure your state refuses to comply. This numbering system of control must be stopped at all cost!

 

We are counting on you. We are praying for you.

    Peace will happen after the war of gog and magog! To suggest that Eze 38&39 is Armageddon just dosen’t have enough countries. Also when Armageddon is over people aren’t needing to burn fuel for seven years. And seven years is what we need at the end of this age, coincidence? Also when that war is over then Israel’s biggest enemies will be destroyed.

    • Hello Bob,

      We know that there will be survivors that live into the Millennium and they will go to Jerusalem year after year to the Feast of Tabernacles.
      Zechariah 14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

      In Ezekiel 39 it speaks of passers by that will be employed to help bury the dead.

      Ezekiel 39:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord God.14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.

      We also have the two accounts of the bird’s of the air and beast of the field eating the flesh of kings and mighty men.
      Ezekiel 39:17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
      18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord God.

      Revelation 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

    PRESENT DAY POLITICAL REALITY VS PROPHETIC REALITY; ARE THEY THE SAME? NO and they never will be until Christ enforces His rule in the kingdom of God with a rod of iron. Peace will come but it is an enforced peace by Christ. Any nation refusing to come to the Feast of Tabernacles celebrated in the Millennial Reign will receive no rain. Mankind still has an unregenerate mind during Christ’s 1000 year reign. The peoples of earth, nations and kings still REFUSE to REPENT DURING THE TRIBULATION and God pouring out judgment upon them. They are of the night and operate under the Prince of darkness and god of this world. Antichrist thinks to change times, the set seasons, and the laws per Daniel’s 7:25 prophecy. Daniel 2:21 NLT- HE (GOD) CONTROLS THE COURSE OF WORLD EVENTS; HE REMOVES KINGS AND SETS UP KINGS. HE GIVES WISDOM TO THE WISE AND KNOWLEDGE TO THOSE WHO HAVE UNDERSTANDING.The KJV starts with the wording, and He changes the times and seasons: GOD IS IN CONTROL and He has PROPHETS WHO HAVE WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING albeit from God! Much damage TO GOOD PROPHETIC EXEGESIS has been done by those supposed scholars TRYING TO FIT OUR PRESENT WORLD EVENTS INTO AN INTERPRETATION OF THEIR OWN MAKING. NO PROPHECY OF THE SCRIPTURE IS OF ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION!!! 2 PETER 1:20. He had told of being an eyewitness personally and seeing the glory of God and hearing the voice of God on the Mount of Transfiguration and then anchoring his faith then in v.19- we have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed as unto A LIGHT THAT SHINES IN A DARK PLACE UNTIL THE DAY DAWN, AND THE DAYSTAR ARISES IN YOUR HEARTS: ALL PROPHECY MUST BE FULFILLED AND FIT INTO GOD’S NARRATIVE OF THE WORD AND BE ESTABLISHED IN THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES!!! When scripture is silent on some aspects of the end of the age, we must be silent. Daniel 11:14 reads in some versions, the violent of your people do lift themselves up to establish the vision- and they have stumbled. We see in part and know in part with many of God’s prophets speaking to the end of the age. He that lives by the sword – dies by the sword. The Beast is a violent military man but he has his supporters. The scripture DOES NOT SAY HE SIGNS THE COVENANT WITH THE MANY BUT THAT HE CONFIRMS IT! He is the enforcer of the WORLD GOVERNMENT DECREES WHO SITS IN THE TEMPLE “TELLING HIMSELF” HE IS THE GOD OF THAT SANCTUARY AND PLACE! He builds himself a palatial palace and demands Jews and Christians worship him and increases his POWER WITH A FOREIGN GOD! He seems at first almost fearful to sit in the temple of God in Jerusalem to make the boast that satan made and was cast out of heaven for! As God delays judgment he becomes arrogant, contemptuous and BLASPHEMOUS! He is possessed by Apollyon the demon of the war from the abyss. He is reprobate and unable to repent; a sad state for him and his followers who take the mark of 666! Who, says the peoples of the earth, can make war with the beast!??! Jesus gave His disciples the prophetic sign as to when to flee Jerusalem and Judah- WHEN YOU SEE THE BEAST SITTING IN THE TEMPLE ON A WHIM DESOLATING THAT HOLY PLACE WITH ABOMINABLE WORDS- FLEE! The 144,000 flee on the WINGS OF AN EAGLE INTO A PLACE PREPARED FOR HER (SHE’S PART OF THE ELECT). Hopefully the church has turned America back to God and our leaders evacuate Jerusalem and those Christian Jews. The Beast sends out forces like a flood to overwhelm that rescuing power just as he has done to Jerusalem and Judah but the “earth opens it’s mouth and swallows the enemy.” God does not leave Israel without a witness but sends His Two Witnesses who prophesy 3 and 1/2 years to defend what is left of Israel. GOD IS IN CONTROL and DELIVERS JUDAH, JERUSALEM AND ISRAEL WHEN CHRIST RETURNS TO EARTH ON THE MT. OF OLIVES! GOD IS IN CONTROL!!!
