CBS Local: China is rolling out a high-tech plan to give all of its 1.4 billion citizens a personal score, based on how they behave.
But there are consequences if a score gets too low, and for some that’s cause for concern, CBS2’s Ben Tracy reported Tuesday.
When Liu Hu recently tried to book a flight, he was told he was banned from flying because he was on the list of untrustworthy people. Liu is a journalist who was ordered by a court to apologize for a series of tweets he wrote and was then told his apology was insincere.
“I can’t buy property. My child can’t go to a private school,” he said. “You feel you’re being controlled by the list all the time.”
China’s growing network of surveillance cameras makes all of this possible.
Opinion: How interesting that China is (unknowingly) planning for the end times with social credit scores and 600 million surveillance cameras, but with Bill Gates’ new company, all that may be already outdated.
In our post from Monday (here), EarthNow is Gates’ new venture that will provide global satellite imagery and live video in real-time.
“Its unsettling pitch describes a network of satellites that can see any corner of the globe and provide live video with a latency of about a second. And a look at the startup’s top investors gives a lot of confidence that this thing is happening.”
I like to call it infrastructure that is being built in preparation for the final dictator, because when he comes, he only has 7 years to fulfill a lot of prophecy.
He will at first be a peace maker with a grand plan. Revelation 6:1-2 says he wears a conqueror’s crown, and Daniel records he comes at a time when revived Rome is split into 10 regions with 10 presidents (Daniel 7:24).
Daniel says he is the 11th king who will subdue 3 kings on his way to total control of the final empire, after being indwelt by Satan (Rev. 13:3). But Antichrist does not rule alone.
Like ancient Roman emperors who had the help of a religious leader a called Pontifex Maximus, Antichrist will have an enforcer called the False Prophet (Rev. 13:11-12).
The word “pontifex” and its derivative “pontiff” later became terms used for Christian bishops, including the Bishop of Rome, and the title of “Pontifex Maximus” was applied within the Catholic Church to the Pope as its chief bishop.
Some emperors took the pontefex title for themselves giving them authority over church and state. In the case of Antichrist both he and the false prophet will be thrown into the bottomless pit alive (Rev. 19:20).
Atheist, Bible hating Chinese leaders have no idea what is coming.
