The Internet Corporation for Assigned NAMES and NUMBERS is on the precipuce of controling the internet. Obama has been working since 2014 to give the oversight and control of the Internet to this international governing body, with absolutely no push back from Congress. There is a last ditch attempt as of today, September 30th, 2016 to sue Executive branch for an abuse of power in giving away something it does not have the power to do. Now why in the world would the United States of America, the land of the free want to even consider giving away the rights to control names and numbers ( IP addresses) to an international corporation? Honestly, I have no idea. Our military created the WWW for the armed forces and then our brilliant computer science teams fined tuned and let this most powerful of communications out to our public. It literally became the World Wide Web and now it is everywhere. We govern the control within the confines of our constitional laws of free speech, press and religion. There are several countries that are part of ICANN that DO NOT hold the free values of speech, press or religious speech. With ICANN in control they can deny names or numbers based on what they “feel” could be racist, sexist, anti-religious or too religious….the list is too long to even think about.
My first thought was this is crazy, I called my senator, but it appears neither one listened and did not try and stop the president. Pretty upsetting to say the least, then I supported the ACLJ and signed a petition to stop this, but once again I am a lone person in a sea of virtual media black out. When something this monumental happens I can only believe it has deep spiritual undertones and God is allowing this to happen for a reason. ICANN uses powerful “Buzz” words that stood out to me. NAMES and NUMBERS. These are two words associated with a one world order in which people are controlled and must pledge their alliegience to this system or not be able to buy or sell. It is really easy to see how we are headed to a cashless society, buying online, banking online, paying bills online, etc. But a mark with a NAME or NUMBER is more than just a simple name or number, it is a system that you believe in, adhere to and want to see succeed. It is not just the name of a leader or the number of his name.
I was reading the Shema last week, and it starts out Hear Oh Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is ONE. Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your oils, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children, talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a SIGN on your HAND and let them be a symbol on your FOREHEAD. Write them on the door posts of your house and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:4-6 ( Capital letters are mine). This is what the LORD wanted the children of Israel to hear when they left, who they were to pledge allegiance to and to whom they should love and learn all about. It was and is a way of life, to do during the day and before bed. Binding names or words on your address ( door posts and gate) on your person ( your personal IP address) just seemed to jump out at me when I read this in conjunction with an international corporation that will soon control what name or IP address I can use, how I can use it or if I will have to “listen, O World, The UN is one with the World, pay homage to the UN, esteem the world, join with the world, globalism is good, tell your children, teach them, make sure they know how to include everyone, make sure they value neutral and non-biased speech, speech that the UN deems good……. This is just something that I made up of course, but do you think this could happen? It has in the past, just not on such a global scale, with the ability to know everybody’s name and number and make sure you are not following the wrong “world value system”. They could stop you from buying or selling, getting a pay check, paying a bill, the list goes on.
So although this may not be as scary as I believe it to be, it is the beginning of Global powers overruling our sovereignty and our constitution in favor of what ever the UN deems to be best. You can join them, after all they will control your name and number or you can remember the LORD your God and His son Jesus Christ and have no other gods before Him, remembering He came in human form to take our sins, the wrong things of the world, upon His spirit, taking our judgement and dying in our place; for the wages of sin are death. But He did die and took our wage of death, but then HE ROSE AGAIN to show us who believe that we too shall rise again and live eternally with Him. It is good news.
So whether or not ICANN is the beginnings of the end, we know God is in control, He already took the wrath and we will live even if we die. That is the Shema and it seems fitting to write this at the beginning of the Feast of Trumpets. Hear Oh Israel…..Here the trumpets , repent and believe , Christ Jesus loves you so.
