I am a great fan of Dr. Katherine Albrecht. I listen to her podcast daily. I listen to her through the Genesis Communications Network, although I listen to nothing else on their network. The reason I listen is because she has cutting edge information on the technology being set up as the infrastructure of the mark of the beast. She is an honest believer in Christ who has been actively resisting the surveillance inroads throughout our society and world wide. People all over the world — Christian and non-Christian alike — sense that we are fast approaching the end of the age. What is discouraging, however, is that the Church has dropped their guard and vigilance regarding the end times. It is our responsibility to be a light on the hill and warn the world of the times we are in.
I think the reason we have dropped the ball is because of too many false alarms. When I came to know the Lord through the new birth in 1985 there was much talk about biblical prophecy being fulfilled. The establishment of Israel as a political nation in 1948 was a benchmark. The resurrection of Hebrew from a dead academic language to a living conversational language because of the insistence of Eliezer Ben-Yehudah at the turn of the 20th century that his family only speak Hebrew was a precursor of the signs of the times. At the turn of the 21st century, concern was heightened with the Y2K scare which turned out to be a non-issue. I first heard Katherine Albrecht on Irvin Baxter’s, “Politics and Religion” radio show. A show that I followed closely for many years since Dr. Baxter was looking at biblical prophecy in the news. But his scaremongering soured me on him as I saw my spirit become increasingly disturbed. When I found Katherine’s show on the GCN website, I found a savvy commentator on the cutting edge who spoke with a gentle and light spirit, and has consistently displayed integrity of character in honesty and humility. I found a way to keep abreast of the news that directly connected to biblical prophecy without disturbing my spirit. After her bout with death through breast cancer, she became an upfront and honest witness to Christ in her broadcasts as well.
The Lord spoke to her about writing this book 15 years ago. I knew nothing about it, but in an email correspondence to her several years ago when she was discouraged on air, I told her that she knew what the Lord wanted her to do. She did not tell me what the project was, but confirmed to me that I was right. That project is this book now published and available from Virtue Press with a certificate and frame. Personally I think the book will sell better without the frame. That adds to shipping weight and costs, which the readers could easily buy on their own. The book is sumptuously illustrated and the narrative is simple and easy for children to read. Along side her narration are Revelation verses that tell the story of the mark of the beast. The point of the book is to make children aware of this upcoming means of buying and selling as something not to do. A certificate is provided that a child can sign, witnessed by the parent, making the promise that they won’t take the mark if it comes in their lifetime. This certificate can then be framed and mounted on their wall as a reminder.
I bought a copy to support her ministry. However, I have no need for the book since I know better. There are two unforgivable sins in the Bible. The first is to blaspheme the Holy Spirit (Mark 3:28-29). “Blaspheme” means to blame, therefore to blaspheme the Holy Spirit is to blame God for evil. In other words that is to call good evil and evil good (Isaiah 5:20). The second is to take the mark of the beast.
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name. (Revelations 14:10-11)
This is serious business, yet it has now become ignored. Dr. Albrecht is trying to bring this back to our attention. I don’t want to waste the book, so I offered it to the secretary at my gym since her 8 year old daughter is always there. I gave her the book to give to her daughter as a Christmas present. She wanted to read it first, then gave it back to me several days later, unwilling to give it to her daughter. I think the only ones who will give the book to their children are genuine disciples of Christ. The secretary is a Christian in name, but she is not a disciple. Perhaps the mother will be provoked by the book to reconsider biblical teaching. Meanwhile I am passing it on to a friend I know is a genuine disciple of Christ.
If you are a parent who takes Christ seriously, I encourage you to get this book for your children.
