This past week brought reports on President Obama's effort to compile a database that has detailed information on schools, communities, financial institutions and businesses by race. The purpose of the database is to identify areas where there have been inequalities in the treatment of minorities in this country. Essentially, "the first black president has built a quasi-reparations infrastructure perpetually fed by racial data that will outlast his administration." President Obama will be able to realize his dream of spreading the wealth around even after he leaves office.
The election of President Obama was supposed to demonstrate that the United States has moved beyond racism. BHO was heralded as the great uniter of the people of this country. Instead, our president has done more than any other person to stir up racism and division. This is as Jesus told us things would be like prior to His return. He said in Matthew 24:7 that one of the birth pang signs of His soon return would be, "nation will rise against nation" (NKJV). The Greek word translated "nation" is pronounced "ethnos" so this is referring to racial conflicts. President Obama is doing his best to fulfill the prophecy Jesus gave us that there will be increasing racial conflicts as a sign of His soon return. But the mentality behind this database provides even more evidence we are close to the return of Christ...
Apparently this racial database will be used to prove discrimination in housing, employment, and schools even when there have been no complaints. It will then provide the basis to force institutions to implement racial and economic justice as defined by the database administrators. The database is already being used to make cases against: "banks that don’t make enough prime loans to minorities; schools that suspend too many blacks; cities that don’t offer enough Section 8 and other low-income housing for minorities; and employers who turn down African-Americans for jobs due to criminal backgrounds."
The database doesn't just use census data which can become outdated quickly, it collects data on individuals regarding credit history and location by zip code. If a zip code has less than 50% "non-white population," it will be considered segregated and become the focus of the social justice police. The new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has the task of providing everyone’s credit status sorted by race (who knew this would be part of their mission). Since we don't have to provide our race when we apply for a credit card, their data mining has to use other sources such as social media to determine a person's race.
This kind of information tracking of individuals is unprecedented. It is not what happens in a free and open society, it's what happens in a police state. The mentality to collect and use this kind of data is the spirit of Antichrist. Today it is race data, tomorrow it will be political and religious affiliation. The vision of George Orwell in 1984 of a tyrannical government tracking our every move is coming to fruition in the government of Obama.
The Bible tells us that in the time before Christ returns during the Tribulation, there will be a worldwide government that controls people to the extent that, "no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name" (Revelation 13:17). This means that anyone who has not sworn allegiance to the government of the Great Leader will not be allowed to participate in the economy. They will be ostracized from society. Tyrants can not tolerate any opposition and anyone who has not pledged their support will be punished.
We are seeing the beginning of this spirit of Antichrist in the government of President Obama. What we are seeing today in BHO foreshadows what is to come under the Antichrist during the Tribulation. The spiritually discerning have been able to see this for some time and for those who are watching, the pace of developments revealing a spirit of Antichrist is increasing.
Most people in this country are in denial that tyranny could happen here... they think God has blessed us so much and our government has too many checks-and-balances for a totalitarian ruler to emerge. But we have recently seen our constitutional rule of law yield to the whims of an oligarchy in recent Supreme Court rulings. And we have seen Congress yield their authority to the President because they are effectively of one mind. This is exactly how the Antichrist comes to power, see Revelation 17:13.
The Bible makes it clear that worldwide tyranny will happen prior to Jesus returning so the United States will not be immune to totalitarianism raising its ugly head. "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man" (Luke 21:36).
