Little did I know when I asked at the end of my last blog on India’s announced ID Card roll out, “Today India, tomorrow who else?” That only two days later I would have my answer, ISRAEL.
Opponents of Biometric Law: ‘It’s a Step to a True Police State’ by David Shamah (IsraelNN.com)
“The first section of Israel’s controversial Biometric Documents Identification Law (the “Biometrics Law”) was approved Sunday for its second and third reading by a joint Knesset committee which included MKs from the Science and Interior Committees. The session was headed by MK Meir Sheetrit, himself a former Interior Minister. Sheetrit first proposed the law when he was Interior Minister and has been pushing it through various Knesset committees, despite strong objections from some MKs and citizens’ groups.
The law empowers the Interior Ministry to set up a database that would include biometric identification information on every Israeli citizen. All citizens would be required to submit fingerprints and a facial profile to authorized government agents; those who refuse to do so could face jail time. The information would be stored in a special chip in ID cards, licenses, passports, and other identification documents, and citizens would be required to present the appropriate document when crossing borders, entering government buildings where identification is required, etc. In addition, the individual information would be saved in the Interior Ministry database.”
I wonder how many other Governments already have this sort of thing in the pipe line just waiting to spring it on their unsuspecting people. Of course God does not need to wait for these countries to roll out their ID Cards, or for anything else to happen either, before the “Rapture” can take place. The Rapture could take place ten years before the beginning of “The Great Tribulation” If God wanted it that way, or it could happen ten minutes before “The Great Tribulation” if that is how God wants it. Mat 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
