Fear of Facial Profiling

With the device, which attaches to an iPhone, an officer can snap a picture of a face from up to five feet away, or scan a person’s irises from up to six inches away, and do an immediate search to see if there is a match with a database of people with criminal records. The gadget also collects fingerprints.

Comment by God:

5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.  6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was uponc the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?  7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a timed, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.  8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?  9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.  10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.  11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.  12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.  13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

  1. I have a very serious question. When we hear of the seventy weeks of Daniel, why do we break that 70 week period up after the first 69 weeks? Then wait ~2 thousand years to continue that period of seventy weeks, with the final week? There is something fundamentally wrong here. God said nothing about breaking it up into pieces, separated by thousands of years. Jesus put and end to the daily sacrifice (Daniel 12:11) when He gave His life for all, didn’t He? He was baptized by John after the 69th week. He ministered to the people of Israel, the Jews, for a time, which was during the 70th week. In the midst of the week He was cut off. And also, because of His being cut off (His sacrifice which ended His life), the daily sacrifices ended. God no longer recognized them. Wouldn’t a rebuilding of the temple and reinstatement of sacrifice be a slap in God’s face, after having given us the perfect sacrifice for all with Jesus’ death. I think when, at the end of the 70th week, Stephen was stoned to death, God turned from making His greatest effort to redeem those of Israel, and turned to the Gentiles. This is biblical history. Yes, there is definitely something wrong with this breaking up of the 70 weeks. The prophecies are complex, but God does not toy with His people’s minds in that way. There is another explanation for all of these prophecies than the one presented here. There has to be.
