It's All Coming Together
by Heidi Swander
I read an article recently that began with these chilling words, "The Institute for Health Freedom (IHF) warns that the economic stimulus bill mandates electronic health records for every citizen without providing for opt-out or patient consent provisions." By now you most likely know this. (If not, I refer you to Jan's Feb. 21st program where she spoke about this topic with Twila Brase of the Citizens' Council on Healthcare.)
Think the mandated inclusion of electronic health records is a creation of the currently-officiating members of our executive and legislative branches? Think again. From a careful reading of chapter 8 in the book, It Could Happen Tomorrow, by Gary Frazier, I discovered that this is a well-orchestrated plan that has been in the works for some time.
What you may not know is that in 2007 President Bush signed an agreement that commits the U.S. to economic integration with Europe, and that one of the provisions of the agreement was creating regulatory convergence between the U.S. and the E.U., including integrating health records electronically!
Frazier states that in Annex 7 of this agreement "the U.S. and E.U. resolve to work together on interoperability of e-health records systems, exchange best practices on all dimensions related to all RFID [Radio Frequency Identification], and develop a framework of regulation and payment policies that promote innovation."
He also warns that "the integration of technology and regulatory systems is at the heart of regional and global cooperation, and will be an absolute necessity if regional currencies, national security systems, health-care, and governments are to be integrated into a North American Union and, eventually, a global system." (Check out how fast a global system is coming to the planet by listening to Jan's March 7th interview with Gary Kah usually posted by late Monday to "Radio Archives.")
In the agreement, according to Frazier, the United States and the Transatlantic Economic Council have "agreed to work together to integrate their healthcare and economic systems with RFID technology that can later be merged into one system."
"RFID is a technology that uses a transponder tag to store information, which is later accessed and retrieved by an antenna that transmits a signal from the tag," Frazier explains. Presently RFID tags are implanted in animals, merchandise, passports, and automobiles, but research is in advanced stages for actually implanting it in human beings. It has already been used, for instance, in Alzheimer patients who can easily become lost and unable to identify themselves to others.
RFID figures in this globalization plan big-time and is becoming more prominent by the day as Jan's guest, Katherine Albrecht, pointed out in her March 7th radio interview, again posted late Monday.) Jan and Katherine discussed a new technology -- enhanced driver's licenses (EDL) -- that have already been implemented in Washington state and are in the process of being implemented in a number of other states. "We are close to the point now that if you don't want RFID in any of your documents that you can't leave the country or get back into it," according to Michigan State Rep. Paul Opsommer in a recent World Net Daily article, that also featured Albrecht. Frazier best sums it up. "RFID technology is being integrated into global commerce by world leaders who know that a cashless society is the only way government can have full control."
Economic integration? Global cooperation? A government that has full control?
Throw in a proposal for an "Organization of Religions Nations" by Italian Democratic Party Leader Walter Veltroni and the picture begins to crystallize. According to Frazier, "Veltroni hopes to create a 'Palace of Religions' in Rome, similar to the United Nations building" in Manhattan. At this new palace in Rome, representatives from every religion in the world could come together to discuss the role of religion in the world."
God has told us in His Word that during the Tribulation there will be a one-world religious system (Rev. 17), a one-world economic system (Rev. 13:16, 17 &Rev. 18:1-19), and a one-world government (Rev. 13:1-10 & Dan. 11:36-39). The pieces would seem to be falling into place with increasing speed. We can sit back and watch as God's Word is fulfilled!
Terrifying, you say? Well, no, because God keeps all of His Word and His promises! And what does He promise His beloved bride? "Let not your heart be troubled . . . if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also" (John 14:1, 3), and, "Because you have kept my command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial, which shall come upon all the world, to test those who dwell on the earth" (Rev. 3:10).
A favorite Bible teacher of mine often says, "When you see the Christmas decorations going up in the local department stores, you know that Thanksgiving is right around the corner!" As we see all the signposts in preparation for the seven-year Tribulation going up, we know it's almost time to go Home!
It's all coming together! So watch (Mark 13:37). Don't be afraid (II Tim. 1:7). And look up (Luke 21:28)! Today you're one day closer to Eternity.
Always looking up!
