Economic Agenda in the Last Days :

In
Luke Chapter 4, we read of a very interesting episode in the life of our Lord. Jesus was in the desert fasting for 40 days and nights and Satan came and appeared to him and tempted our Lord in three major temptations :
1. the desire for food
2. religious pride ( tempting God )
3. global power

In the third temptation -- for global power -- Satan shows Jesus all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
And Satan says to Jesus : "All this power will I give Thee, and the glory of them:
for that is delivered unto me;
And to whomsoever I will I give it.
"If Thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine." Luke 4:5-7

Our Lord of course did not worship Satan and instead, He cast him from Him.

So we realize that in general, the rulers of this world yield to the influence of wealth and power
and wind up in league with Satan
. Perhaps that is why Satan has 7 crowns on his 7 heads in the latter times. [ Power over all the Industrialized Democracies known as the "group of 7", and thus Satan controls all the wealth of the world through the IMF  and World Bank ].

We read in
Revelation Chapter 12: 3, that Satan has 7 crowns on his 7 heads.
What does that mean ?


biblestudents

Revelation 12:3
"And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads

"a great red dragon" = Satan

"having 7 heads" ...
controlling the G7 ( democratic industrialized nations ) economically .
The G7 nations are: America, Canada, England, Germany, France, Italy, and Japan.
These 7 Industrialized Democracies meet at their G7 Summits and decide geo-political money policies.
( World Bank, the IMF International Monetary Fund, Economic Forum etc. ).

"and 10 horns" ... controlling the WEU. [ Western European Union ] .
There are 15 member nations:
Austria,
Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France , Germany, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Luxembourg,
The Netherlands (Holland),
Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK (England).

If Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg merge into one enterprise known as "Benelux", that would bring the WEU to 13 member-nations.
And Daniel 7:8 tells us that 3 nations will be removed from the WEU by the antichrist beast. That will leave only 10 members of the WEU. [ ten horns, ten toes ? ]

"and 7 crowns upon his heads" Rev 12:3.
The G 7 are implementing a global financial system in stages, [ chips, cards, biometric scans ]
and will eventually end with the rfid internal chip (the 666 Mark of the Beast) in the right hand or forehead for all economic transactions. Gradualism conquers.

All of the above Scripture points to the main fact that :
* Satan has temporary control of the financial agenda of the world. *
Satan is called " the god of this world " 2 Corinthians 4:4
 


LINKS
The following links reveal more about the smart card industry

Physiological behavior and traits
Biometrics is the science and technology of authentication (i.e. establishing the identity of an individual) by measuring the person's physiological or behavioral features. The term is derived from the Greek words "bios" for life and "metron" for degree. Biometrics usually refers to technologies for measuring and analyzing human physiological characteristics such as fingerprints, eye retinas and irises, voice patterns, facial patterns, and hand measurements, especially for authentication purposes.

Examples of behavioural characteristics which can be measured include signature recognition, gait recognition, speaker recognition and typing recognition. Biometric technologies are becoming the foundation of an extensive array of highly secure identification and personal verification solutions
.

3 Types of Smart Cards ... memory only; CPU ; PKI ( encrypted )
Another type of token called a smart card contains an embedded chip that can be programmed to send and receive data and perform computations. The underlying electronics are small and can be shaped into a wide range of physical packages. Most smart cards are driver’s-license– or credit-card–shaped.
PKI Smart Cards ( CPU Crypto )
This type of smart card is typically tied to a public-key infrastructure (PKI) and sometimes called PKI-enabled smart cards. PKI is a combination of software, services, and encryption technologies that facilitate secure communications
and
[ Ed: financial ] transactions. The only way to get a smart card to perform cryptographic operations is to provide a password or biometric information

Smart Card Readers

Mobile Biometric Readers
SMI's software will enable organizations to quickly and cost-effectively extend the capabilities of their current security systems to mobile environments where they can be used by security officials who operate beyond fixed checkpoints, personnel manning temporary entry portals, and first responders answering emergency calls. Datastrip's DSVII-SC is the first biometric smart card reader to offer SMI's software as an option
SMI's mobile identity verification application enables data on smart cards, prox cards, HID iCLASS cards, bar codes or other credentials decoded by the Datastrip DSVII-SC to be compared against an organization's access control system or other core database to confirm the identity of the cardholder. The SMI software also allows in-house identity data to be transferred to an on-board DSVII database without custom programming.
SMI's mobile mustering application enables organizations to use the DSVII-SC to easily compare a list of employees who entered the office using an access credential during the day with a list of employees who have left the building and assembled to be registered as evacuated in an emergency scenario. Data collected by the DSVII will be automatically transmitted to the host application and cross-referenced in real time, providing valuable information for rescue efforts by first responders

Tag and Track Readers required
Tag and Track System and Location
The "Tag and Track" system will provide a flexible, rapidly deployable assisted-GPS / GSM location-based service including an innovative integrated RFID technology that enables a wide array of customizable applications.
Our customers will deploy a portable receiver or reader devices network whether inside or outside a building which will be used to pick up the signal transmitted by our "Tag and Track" Tracker with its integrated RFID Tag. The device is about the size of a cell phone. This system was originally conceived/developed on a Special Police Forces request from the French Ministry of the Interior.

PC Computer and smart cards 
http://www.smartcards.frost.com
Currently, smart cards are linked to a computer network only through a reader or terminal-side application that has Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) support. As newer platform specifications support TCP/IP, vendors will be able to integrate smart cards directly into the computer network and negate the need for complex terminal-side infrastructure

"The platform in this market will either be flexible and open or proprietary and secure," explains Paul. "The flexible platform will be suitable for applications such as global system for mobile communication (GSM) and transit applications, whereas the secure platform is likely to be utilized for payment and identification applications."

Smart Cards Platform Market is part of the Smart Card subscription and it evaluates four major smart cards platforms -- Java card, [ed: biometric visuals and audio prints ]

Interoperability of smart cards
Bob Donelson : working with Dept. of Interior and Homeland Security ( access ); also the Vet Admin. ( VA) and Transportation ( fare-access) APTA
The department plans to issue cards to all its employees, as well as to firefighters, police and other emergency personnel that need access to DOI facilities. By late 2005, the DOI expects it will have ordered and issued up to 70,000 cards
The technological groundwork for the smart card program is defined in the Government Smart Card Interoperability Specification (GSC-IS), developed by the Government Services Administration and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This standard was created to ensure the interoperability of contactless and contact smart cards throughout the federal government.
We initially created the DESFire chip as an upgrade to the Mifare chip so that the chip could handle more applications, such as contactless payments and enhanced security features,

Icomsat fingerprint e-DNA card
The combination of smart card and e-DNA(R) technologies will have a dramatic impact on identity recognition, security access, and cryptographic applications. From ID cards, passports, drivers' licenses, social security cards, medical and insurance records, to work permits, resident alien cards, club memberships, voter cards, student ID, and pilots' licenses, its possibilities are endless. Banks, correctional facilities and personnel agencies will largely benefit from this technology.

TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION
Smart cards contain a microchip that stores data. They have been used in cell phones and for online banking, among other things. Biometric technology is based on recognizing people's unique physical characteristics, such as facial structure or fingerprints, to authenticate identity.
Ed: Will one factor be the chip in the right hand or forehead ?
We're doing better security now, but we still depend on usernames and passwords as a way of getting online. We now have the technology for the end-user to have two-factor authentication. We expect to see security grow" and to see different security techniques being used together, Schmidt said, adding that people had to accept the need to supply more credentials.

A Global Currency without Gold ?? J Wanneski
"And if the euro can replace the franc, mark and lira, why can't a new world currency merge the dollar, euro and yen? The euro's recent recovery against the dollar almost certainly establishes its credibility as a permanent currency. While major eurozone economies remain troubled, practically no one so far is blaming the European Central Bank.

This suggests success for the grandest reform of all, a supra-national central bank. The ECB Executive Board and Governing Council could yet become political targets, of course, especially if much-discussed deflation actually sets in. But even with strikes in Germany and France, few politicians seek a way out in a little more inflation or currency depreciation; few complain about the loss of "monetary sovereignty.

Cue Cat Barcode Reader -- David Icke

The Privacy Foundation has serious privacy concerns about the product because the :CRQ software, which accompanies the :CueCat device, appears to transmit all of the information that Digital:Convergence would need in order to record every bar code that every user scans. This tracking feature of the :CRQ software could be used by the company to profile an individual user.

Profiling is typically used by Internet marketing companies to provide personalized ads targeted to an individual. The :CueCat tracking ability does not appear to be disclosed in the documentation or privacy policy that accompanies the product. In addition, there is no disclosure of what is currently being done with the bar code scan information once it arrives at the company.

The tracking feature is made possible because a unique ID number is assigned to each user when they register their :CueCat with Digital:Convergence. This unique ID number is sent to Digital:Convergence servers along with a bar code number each time a bar code is scanned. This ID number was observed both by investigators with the Privacy Foundation and by other outside researchers. This ID number could be associated with personal information and demographic information that the user supplies during product registration.

We recommend that Digital:Convergence provide a patch that disables the ID number for current users. The company and its partners – including Radio Shack, Wired, and Forbes – should notify users of the existence of the tracking potential, and the availability of the patch to remove it. In addition, we recommend that future shipments of the product have the user ID number feature disabled.
