Surviellance GPS Illegal

“In August, three judges on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia (two conservatives, one liberal) ruled unanimously — and correctly — that police violated the Constitution when they hid a GPS device on a person’s car and tracked his every move without a valid warrant. That person, Antoine Jones, was convicted of conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine based on the tracking of his Jeep for four weeks.” The day is here where digital technology raises questions about differences between cyberspace and the physical world.

Private activity is protected under the U.S. Constitution. Yet surviellance and monitoring of private activity is increasingly becoming a reality according. For the discerning student of prophecy, this is a flagrant violation of the fourth amendment to the Bill of rights that allows “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

Matthew 24:12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Are we approaching a time where those with very different beliefs from the majority, and who diligently seek to understand the signs of the times of Bible prophecy, will be tracked with this same technology? The foundations of the constitution of the United States are being slowly eroded by those who are duty bound, and whom we expect to uphold them. Eventually no protections will be left against the loss of freedom of religion and conscience. The time is coming when “our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near.” Maranatha, p. 190

“Liberty of conscience, which has cost so great a sacrifice, will no longer be respected. The church and the world will unite, and the world will lend to the church power to crush out the right of the people to worship God according to His Word. Signs of the Times, 8 November 1899.

Thankfully, for the time being the district judges in Washington DC are upholding this principle for now.
