Note from Pastor Kevin Lea:  Technology has been hailed as our servant for decades.  However, we can see that much of it has brought death, sinfulness/corruption and enslavement instead.  Major beneficiaries of the computer age have been the military industrial complex (in order to soon kill billions – Revelation 6:3 and 8), the porn and related lust industries, and what is rapidly becoming the global police state. 

 As you will see in this article, the day is coming when you may try to run, but will not be able to hide.  The Bible predicted that this would be the case in the last days (Revelation 13).

But shortly after the music began, police approached him to say that his facial features indicated he was wanted in connection with an economic crime they had investigated in the nearby Guangxi region.

“The suspect was shocked that he was found among tens of thousands of people,” said Li Jin, a local police officer, according to the China Daily.

It’s the latest example of facial recognition being used to catch suspects for a wide range of crimes and misdemeanours in China.

Police wore ‘facial recognition glasses’ at a train station last month which resulted in 33 people being detained for crimes including
