Department of Homeland Security Taps Travel Agents as Real ID Deadline Nears

February 12, 2019   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags:

Uncle Sam needs your help – and your travelers might, too, DHS said. It’s time to begin asking your customers if they have Real ID-compliant identification, and adding a reminder to all bookings for travel beginning October 2020.

In just 20 months, the rules for flying out of any U.S. airport will undergo their biggest change ever — and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is calling on the travel industry to help keep air travelers moving.

“The big issue we have is, do people know this dramatic change is coming, and will it affect all airports simultaneously? The last thing we want is for consumers to show up at the airport and not be allowed to board their flights,” said Steve Yonkers, director of identity and credentialing for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in a conference call sponsored by the USTOA. “So, we are trying to work with state and federal government agencies and members of the travel industry” to get the word out.

Passed by Congress in 2005, the Real ID Act set stricter standards for identifying recipients of identification, such as driver’s licenses, and requires that travelers on airlines in the U.S. show ID that is compliant with the new regulations. States have been upgrading their systems to meet the new requirements over the years — but now the final deadline, Oct. 1, 2020, is within the booking window of many travelers.

      Hello Jim,

      Here in Texas, we have the Real ID or ID 2020 drivers license. It will be up to each individual to decide if they will renew their DL. But we have to be able to fly and travel to Israel, so both our DL and Passports have to be compatible with the real ID. We know that the “Mark” will not be given out until after the Antichrist is revealed and the tribulation has began.
      Revelation 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.16 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:17 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.18 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.

      The technology behind the Real ID could be a precursor to the Mark, but it in itself is not the Mark. We will be on the program screaming from the rooftops, when we know the Mark is here. Please keep watching End of the Age. Have a great day.
