We live in a surveillance society with growing attacks by government, corporations, and individuals on our private communications as well as our personal financial transactions. Every citizen needs to become aware of this unprecedented attack on our freedom and privacy.
I remember reading Grant R Jeffrey's book Surveillance Society shortly after 9/11 and being utterly amazed by his body of work that presented compelling evidence that we are witnessing the fulfillment of the ancient prophecies of the Bible about the events of the last days, which will culminate in the Battle of Armageddon and the return of Christ to establish His eternal kingdom on earth.
Some of the fascinating (and frightening!) things he discussed included how our E-mail and Internet surfing are constantly monitored; how Echelon global surveillance monitors all of our calls and faxes; how NATO and the UN plan to create a world government; how electronic weapons will be used for global economic war and for advancing the Antichrist's one-world government one day; and how every detail of your life is now available in a computer database.
This well documented book warned that remarkable new surveillance technologies are creating "Big Brother" monitoring of every activity that was foretold 2,000 years ago by the book of Revelation. Truly a must read for anyone interested in the relationship between emerging technology and biblical prophecy.
This book will challenge each reader to examine the powerful evidence that we are truly living in the last days and that Jesus Christ may return in our generation. The final chapter invites the reader to respond to Jesus' invitation to place their faith in Him.
Needless to say, when I come across a recent TechCrunch article on preventing crime with technology it only highlights these growing trends and reaffirms that are time is short.
Our time is short people. For the first time in all of human history the very technology that is needed to fulfill the unfulfilled Bible prophecies for the end times is popping up all around us at an alarming rate. It's time we took notice.
