So back in May of 2018 there was a deal for a lifetime membership to adobe premiere 2018, in a one time purchase. I did so but recently my program has been trying to get me to re-buy another subscription. When i open up my product it tells me to sing in, then to buy a subscription or do a 30 day trial, i skip and go to license client, since i already have a code. When i enter my code it then proceeds to sign me back aout and repeat the process, over, and over again. I use my editing software nearly every day so I am unsure why randomly this would start happening with no updates inbetween the alst time i used it.

Adobe Premiere Elements is sold under a perpetual license. You buy it once for about $100 in the US and you can use it as long as your machine and operating system are compatable. Premiere Pro is sold under a subscription that can be paid montly or annually.
If you paid for "Premiere Elements 2018" that should only require activation with a serial number. There is a system built in that ensures you have only installed it on one or two machines. It does that through being "logged in" to your Adobe account.
Can you reply with screen shots where you are being asked to buy a new subscription? Maybe also a screen shot of your Help menu that shows your logged in or out status?
