“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the Day of the LORD is here in the valley of decision.” Joel 3:14
“Now therefore reverence the LORD, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and you serve the LORD. And if it seem evil to you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods; For the LORD our God, He it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed: And the LORD drove out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore we will also serve the LORD; for He is our God.” Joshua 24:14-18
The Hour of Judgment
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting message to preach to them that dwell on the earth… Saying with a loud voice, “Reverence God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His Judgment has come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” The Book of Revelation 14:6-7
The Wrath of God
And the third angel followed, saying with a loud voice: “If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixer into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone … And the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name.” The Book of Revelation 14:9-11
Y’hoshua said, “Therefore when you shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand:) …And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” Matthew 24:15, 22
The Stars of the Firmament
“And they that are wise shall shine as the brightness of the Firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Dan 12:3
The “Abomination of Desolation”
“And he said, Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end… the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. …and the abomination that makes desolate set up… But you go your way till the end is: for you shall rest, and stand in your lot at the end of the days. Daniel 12:9-11,13
Y’hoshua is clearly referring to Daniel 12:11 in Matthew 24:15. He also speaks of a time of Tribulation the earth has never seen before nor will ever see again.
Of all the so-called “Bible scholars” for all of time, not one has ever tied the “Abomination of Desolation” spoken of by Daniel to the infamous “Mark of the Beast” in the Book of Revelation. However, when we look at it closely, it is the “abomination of desolation” or “that which causes you to have nothing”! No privacy, no security, no money, no peace. Anyone who takes the “mark” will be at the mercy of the “Beast,” which has no mercy! But they will also suffer the wrath of God, because He has commanded against it! God says He will have mercy on those who love Him and keep His Commandments.
Let’s look to the definitions of a few words here. (H) is for Hebrew and (G) is for Greek
Abomination, Strong’s #8251 (H) shiqquwts, disgusting, that is, filthy; especially idolatrous, used of impure things
Desolate, Strong’s #8074 (H) shamem, to stun, that is devastate or stupefy, bring into desolation, be destitute, destroy, waste; (G) from #2048, to lay waste, make desolate, come to naught (nothing)
Mark, Strong’s #5480 (G) charagma, an etching, i.e. stamp (as a badge of servitude) an imprinted mark, or sculptured figure (statue): graven, mark
“Forasmuch then as we are the children of God, we ought not to think that God is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven (charagma) by art and man’s device.” Acts 17:29
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” Rev 13:4
The Whole World Deceived
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Rev 12:9
The “Mark of the Beast” – 666
“And he causes 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 (PIN). Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: it is for the numbering of man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (666) The Book of Revelation 13:16-18
“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.” – James Madison, 4th president of the United States (1809 to 1817)
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some covet after, they have erred from the Truth, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” 1 Timothy 6:10
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon ($).” Matt 6:24
Current Monetary System
Those that control the economy and who have established the current monetary system are not concerned about millions of people losing their homes in bankruptcy, millions who are unemployed, without basic health care, pollution in the food, air and water, or a myriad of other issues people depend on for their livelihood. They are just as Pharaoh and Nimrod and their mighty men in times of old.
What they ARE concerned with is controlling the money and transferring the wealth from the middle and lower classes to a group of elite international banks. They want what’s in your pocket to be in their pocket!
Abraham’s admonition to Nimrod
This is what our father Abraham said to Nimrod, king of Babylon, who sought to establish a World Order of his making of a false religion and government filled with idolatry, fraud and oppression in his time:
“O foolish, stupid and ignorant king, Woe to you forever!
I thought you would teach your servants the upright way, but you have not done this, but have filled the whole earth with your sins and the sins of your people who have followed your ways.
Don’t you know, or haven’t you heard, that this evil which you do, our ancestors sinned therein in days of old, and the eternal God brought the waters of the flood on them and destroyed them all, and also destroyed the whole earth on their account? And will you and your people rise up now and do like to this work, in order to bring down the wrath of the LORD God of the universe, and to bring evil on you and the whole earth?
Now therefore put away this evil deed which you do, and serve the God of the universe, as your soul is in His hands, and then it will be well with you.
And if your wicked heart will not hearken to my words to cause you to forsake your evil ways and to serve the eternal God, then will you die in shame in the latter days, you, your people and all who are connected to you, hearing your words or walking in your evil ways.
And when Abram had ceased speaking before the king and princes, Abram lifted up his eyes to the heavens, and he said, the LORD sees all the wicked and He will judge them.” The Book of Jasher 11:56-61
Companies have been hard at work to comply with government restrictions to cause everyone to receive a National ID Card:
Real ID Act
“Using the “war on terrorism” as an excuse to monitor all Americans, the Real ID Act supported by President Bush and Republican politicians says that state driver’s licenses and other ID cards must include a digital photograph, anti-counterfeiting features and undefined “machine-readable technology, with defined minimum data elements” that could include a magnetic strip or RFID tag. The Department of Homeland Security would be charged with drafting the details of the regulation.”
“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened.” – Josef Stalin
“Advances in digital technology have now made it possible to engineer an identification system capable of monitoring virtually every human transaction. What is needed is the control grid or technologies put in place to enable the identification and monitoring of financial transactions on a global scale.”
“Modern technology has created a new electronic world without borders. With modern computer technology, satellites, GPS, biometric and smart card technology, people can now be tracked within 3 feet anywhere in the world.”
“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced on December 20, 2013 a phased enforcement plan for the REAL ID Act (the Act), as passed by Congress that will implement the Act in a measured, fair, and responsible way.”
“Secure driver’s licenses and identification documents are a vital component of the national security framework.” The REAL ID Act, passed by Congress in 2005, enacted the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation that the Federal Government “set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver’s licenses.” …The purposes covered by the Act are: accessing Federal facilities, entering nuclear power plants, and, no sooner than 2016, boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft.”
“Those who would give up essential liberty for temporary security deserves neither liberty nor security.” Benjamin Franklin
“History shows that when government gains the power to monitor the actions of the people, it eventually uses that power to impose totalitarian controls on the populace.”
“Bill Clinton first proposed a national medical identification card in 1993 as part of his ill-fated plan to provide universal health insurance. After the failure of his health system plans, however, the government has incrementally been achieving his plan one piece at a time… the bottom line is to require computerized reporting and to gather more and more information about American citizens on government databases.”
“Coordinated plans have been well underway to give the Federal Government the power to input personal information on all Americans onto a government database. The computer will record all school, business, medical, financial, and personal activities, and track people movements as they travel about the United States.”
“Authorized by Congress, they plan to force all Americans to carry an I.D. card linked to a federal database, without which they will not be able to drive a car, get a job, board a plane, enter a hospital emergency room or school, have a bank account, cash a check, buy a gun, or have access to government benefits such as Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid.”
“Putting all that information on a government database means the end of privacy. Daily actions will henceforth be recorded, monitored, tracked, and contingent on showing The Card.”
“These new federal laws effectively overturn the 1974 Privacy Act, which declared that “It shall be unlawful for any Federal, State or local government agency to deny to any individual any right, benefit, or privilege provided by law because of such individual’s refusal to disclose his Social Security account number.” On the pretext of catching illegal aliens, welfare cheats, deadbeat dads, and criminals, these laws will subject law-abiding Americans to the police-state apparatus of national I.D. cards linked to coordinated government databases.”
Health ID Card
“One of the major features of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s nationalized health care plan, which the public rejected in 1994, was giving the Federal Government a database of every American’s medical records. Each person was to have a Health Security Card (which Clinton waved for the cameras during his 1994 State of the Union Message) with a “unique identifier number” that would give government bureaucrats easy computer access to everybody’s entire medical history.”
“The Clinton health plan included setting up a National Health Board, responsible only to the President, with extraordinary rule making powers to “assure uniformity” and to decide what may and may not be spent on health care, both globally and by each provider. Physicians and other providers were to be required to report every medical service to the national database.”
“The Card and the database were presented to the public, on the one hand, as each individual’s personal key to free health care, and on the other hand, as a means of “health care planning” and of eliminating fraud among providers. The bottom line is to require computerized reporting and to gather more and more information on government databases.”
“The latest bait used to get all medical records on a federal database is the current drive to set up a federal Immunization Registry that will tag all children at birth and track them until death. This will achieve the original Clinton Administration goal of computerizing the health records of all Americans, with unique personal identifiers, in order to make them conform to government health policy.”
“A card serves as an access key to obtain information and initiate transactions. It may combine banking and health insurance identification.”
“Where are your papers?” In whatever form presented, whether an ID card, your mobile phone or an implanted chip, etc., whatever is required, these devices are designed to accumulate information and track everything one does “from womb to tomb” as a “badge of ownership.” This is your “valley of decision”! Choose to obey “the beast” or obey God. When they get it all set up and implemented so that you can’t buy nor sell, travel, etc., unless you have it, it’s time to refuse it! Just like when Israel left Egypt. Come out, be separate and leave it behind you. Love the LORD your God and keep His Commandments which one must do in order to live. The choice is yours! Chapter 3 of Daniel serves as an example to us.
Light vs. Darkness
This is what the Apostle Paul says, “Don’t be unequally yoked together with unbelievers (esp. heathen): for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has light with darkness? And what concord has Christ with Belial? or what part has he that believes with an infidel? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? for you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Wherefore come out from among them, and you be separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Cor 6:14-18
