Paving the Road: National ID Card Coming Your Way

Rumors had been circulating for months that the United States would issue a mandatory "National ID Card" as part of "immigration reform". As we see today, it appears that this alarming rumor is on the verge of becoming a reality. If so, many of us believe that a mandatory ID card represents the next-to-last step, in an ongoing process which will end with the "Mark of the Beast" as described in Revelation 13.

There are two recent articles which elaborate on this coming reality:

"Dems spark alarm with call for national ID card"

Democratic leaders have proposed requiring every worker in the nation to carry a national identification card with biometric information, such as a fingerprint, within the next six years, according to a draft of the measure.

The national ID program would be titled the Believe System, an acronym for Biometric Enrollment, Locally stored Information and Electronic Verification of Employment.

It would require all workers across the nation to carry a card with a digital encryption key that would have to match work authorization databases.

“The cardholder’s identity will be verified by matching the biometric identifier stored within the microprocessing chip on the card to the identifier provided by the cardholder that shall be read by the scanner used by the employer,” states the Democratic legislative proposal.

The ACLU said “if the biometric national ID card provision of the draft bill becomes law, every worker in America would have to be fingerprinted.”

A source at one pro-immigration reform group described the proposal as “Orwellian.”

There is also a commentary in the Huffington Post (I know, I know, not one of my favorite sites either, but when you are desperate for pertinent news...)

"National ID Card Included in democratic Immigration Bill"

The Democratic proposal includes increased money for border patrol and drug war agents, equipment, helicopters and unmanned drones. It would create a national ID -- which is dubbed a "biometric social security card." Though Democrats insist that it is not an ID card and can only be used for employment purposes

The crackdown on employers relies on the creation of national identity cards. "These cards will be fraud-resistant, tamper-resistant, wear resistant, and machine-readable social security cards containing a photograph and an electronically coded micro-processing chip which possesses a unique biometric identifier for the authorized card-bearer," reads the bill summary.

Well, not so fast. Several weeks ago we posted on the fraudulent use of EU Passports (also previously thought to be "fraud-resistant") - when the Israeli directed assassination took place in Dubai - the use of fraudulent passports, which were integral to the assassination plot, exposed the fact that this form of ID could be easily manipulated and forged.

Anytime such ID involves the use of a "card" - it seems obvious that fraud can ensue. Cards can be stolen, and even biometric information can be manipulated when a card used for these purposes. There have been several articles written to this effect, resulting from the assassinations in Dubai.

It seems clear that the next step (after the inevitable fraud, theft and illegal use of these cards) would be an "implantable" microchip because that would be the only way to truly prevent fraudulent use of the proposed cards. It is the same exact technology, only rather than embedded within a theft-prone card, the chip could be inserted into the individual's skin. This isn't a foreign concept as millions of animals have already been "chipped" and humans are already receiving the same microchip in their skin. The technology exists for the full use of implantable microchips, including all health and financial information and the satellite capability to track individuals with the chip. It's all in place now.

It will be the same with this "National ID Card". Soon after implementation, it will become obvious that fraudulent and stolen cards will be used for criminal activity - just as has been seen with the EU Passport system. But for now, that doesn't matter. What does matter, is public acceptance of the idea of having a mandatory biometric ID card. It is a stepping stone to the inevitable conclusion: The Mark of the Beast.

Just look at some of the key words in the first article above:

"Electronic Verification"

"Biometric Enrollment"

"biometric identifier"

"microprocessing chip"

"digital encryption"

"authorization databases"


And if this isn't enough, what I find absolutely fascinating from a prophetic perspective, is the "name" of this proposed system:


(BELIEVE: an acronym for Biometric Enrollment Locally stored Information and Electronic Verification of Employment).

What an interesting name for this. We know from Revelation 13:15-17: Those who refuse to worship the antichrist will be killed, and taking the "Mark of the Beast" is associated with worship of the antichrist. This fact is obvious from Revelation 14:9 which describes the link between taking the mark and worship of the antichrist:

"If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives the mark on the hand, he, too will drink of the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath."

Once the "Mark" is implemented (during the Tribulation), it is is associated with worship of the antichrist, or, in other words, a person's "BELIEF". And we see that the U.S. government is proposing that the last step in this process (a process which obviously represents a huge step leading into the "Mark of the Beast") - a "National ID Card" - is named just that: "BELIEVE". How interesting. How surreal. How prophetic.

During the Tribulation, when one takes the "Mark", they are also formally declaring what they "believe" in - and that is belief in the antichrist.

Those who refuse the "Mark" are those who refuse to "believe" in the antichrist - and obviously these people are those who have determined that their belief is in Christ Jesus. Its binary. One either determines that they "BELIEVE" in Christ or they choose to "BELIEVE" in the antichrist.

Therefore, it is easy to see that taking the "Mark" or not, during the Tribulation will be a very public declaration of what people "BELIEVE".

And that is the name of this newly proposed "biometric identifier", with its "microprocessing chip":


Sometimes I look at prophecy unfolding, and all I can say is "wow". This is one of those moments.

Christians are going to be raptured up before people are required to take the "Mark", right?

Scott said...

Yes, absolutely. The "Mark" isn't implemented until the Tribulation - its description in Rev 13 is well into the Trib.

We'll be long gone :)

God Bless

As a holder of same Passport, this did so make me chuckle. Another 'good idea' hits the dust as the Israelis outsmart the EU. Ha!

When I first saw mine, with horror, I realised the hologram contains the craftily disguised 'portrait' of the 'Green Man', an ancient British god, no doubt in cahouts with Baal!

LOL Sue - "Another 'good idea' hits the dust"

You have a way with words!

I didn't realize that about the hologram - thats pretty creepy!

Believe - the original Greek word is pisteuo and the definition is "a firm conviction, full surrender, lifestyle that reflects that surrender." Interesting...

Thanks, as always, for your insight and for taking such time and care to help keep us informed!

Thats a nice pick-up on the Greek meaning Leslie - many thanks for that!
