Technocratic tyranny is a global issue. The author correctly concludes, “Bodily autonomy is the foundation stone of self-government, and self-government is the thing that gives freedom meaning. If we do not enjoy sovereignty over our minds and our flesh, then we are not free in any meaningful way.” ⁃ TN Editor
Technocracy: Europe is on a precipice. It has marched, blindly, towards something very much resembling tyranny. Austria will shortly criminalise those who refuse the Covid vaccine. Germany looks set to follow. Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, is wondering out loud if every member state should do likewise and make offenders of those who reject this form of medication. In Italy you are deprived of your livelihood rather than your liberty if you say no to vaccination: the unvaxxed are not permitted to work. Anywhere. In Greece, everyone over the age of 60 must pay the government 100 euros for every month they remain unvaxxed. As if the Greek government, in cahoots with its masters in Brussels, had not immiserated Greek pensioners enough already.
Police in Rotterdam opened fire on people protesting against Covid restrictions. Three were seriously injured. Austrian cops have wielded batons and shields against the thousands who took to the streets of Vienna to say no to mandatory vaxxing. In Brussels, the black, bureaucratic heart of the EU project, water cannons and tear gas were unleashed upon citizens agitating against vaccine passes. The irony is almost too much: in the European quarter of Brussels, the very part of Europe in which the modern European sensibility was forged by politicians, experts and technocrats, ordinary people make a blow for freedom and the forces of this supposedly liberal new continent beat them down. Rarely has modern Europe’s bluster about ‘human rights’ and ‘respect’ been so savagely exposed.
What is happening in Europe right now is nothing short of terrifying. Read More …
Opinion: When viewed through the lens of Scripture, the news is not terrifying, it lines up perfectly with prophecy. In fact, this preview of the mark of the beast may be some of Satan’s finest work. He is not called the ‘deceiver of the whole world’ (Revelation 12:9) for nothing.
“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
I wonder how many booster shots it will take before the nations line up for a permanent mark that is clearly prophesied in Revelation 13:16-17?
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and 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.”
When he arrives on the world stage, he will come as a peacemaker.
Rev. 6:1-2 “And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.”
Here is the first deception of the tribulation. This rider comes on a white horse at the beginning of the tribulation, wearing a victor’s crown (stephanos) and carrying a bow with no arrows, mimicking Christ.
In His second coming Jesus rides a white horse (Rev. 19:11-16) but wears a diadem crown and comes as a conqueror at the end of the tribulation with a two-edged sword (not a bow), with His robe dipped in blood (Isa. 63:1-3), with the armies of heaven (us) on white horses wearing fine linen.
“Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.” Rev. 19:15
The conqueror of Rev. 6:1-2 is the future world ruler called Antichrist, and is likely the same ruler mentioned in Daniel 9:26:
” …And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary” indicating the ruler comes from the Roman Empire which destroyed Jerusalem and the Holy Temple in 70 AD.
As the European Union continues to devolve into tyranny, a future peacemaker will be hailed as a god.
