Why Is There Suddenly Such A Huge Push For ‘Mark Of The Beast’ Technology?

Blue Eye - Public DomainWe always knew that it was coming.  All over the world, governments and big corporations are pushing us toward a fundamentally different way of doing things.  They insist that this new way will be more safe, more secure and more efficient.  They are telling us that we should embrace new technology and be open to new ways of buying and selling.  And they assure us that new methods of identification will not be intrusive and will simply allow them to crack down on criminals such as identity thieves, tax evaders and terrorists.  But could it be possible that there is more going on here than we are being told?  Could it be possible that we should actually be highly alarmed by this huge push for “Mark of the Beast” technology?


This week, we learned that a new form of identification for the Internet is being proposed in the European Union.  When I first came across this story, I was absolutely horrified

The European Union is proposing a government ID for using the Internet which will eradicate both on-line privacy and free speech.

Spearheaded by former communist official Andrus Ansip, the European Commission published a draft document outlining its proposed electronic ID that would not only allow the EU to track what you say on-line, but also what you buy.

When it is initially introduced, this government-issued form of Internet identification may be purely voluntary, but once enough people have adopted it, then it will be quite easy for the European Union to make it mandatory for everyone else.  The following is an excerpt from a page on the official EU website that describes this new program

It is recognised that a multitude of username and password combinations is both inconvenient and a security risk. However, the frequent practice of using one’s platform profile to access a range of websites and services often involves non-transparent exchanges and cross- linkages of personal data between various online platforms and websites. As a remedy, in order to keep identification simple and secure, consumers should be able to choose the credentials by which they want to identify or authenticate themselves. In particular, online platforms should accept credentials issued or recognised by national public authorities, such as electronic or mobile IDs, national identity cards, or bank cards.

So what form would such identification take in the future?

Photo IDs are so easily lost or stolen.  In order to make identification more safe and more secure, many advocates are now suggesting that we find ways to make identification a permanent part of a person.

One way that this could be done is by using microchips.  If this sounds creepy, it is because it is very creepy.

But all over the world this is already being done to pets, and just recently a local NBC News report promoted the idea that we will all microchip our children someday.

I know that I will never allow anyone to microchip me or anyone in my family, but there are others out there that are enthusiastically embracing the concept of starting to merge humanity with technology.

In fact, Tesla CEO Elon Musk insists that we are all going to have to become cyborgs someday

Elon Musk, the billionaire boss of Tesla and SpaceX, has said that humans need to become cyborgs to avoid becoming “house cats” for vastly more intelligent robots.

Musk said that as artificial intelligence advances, people will need to augment their brain power with digital technology to prevent them becoming irrelevant.

He backed the idea of a “neural lace” – a new electronic layer of the brain that would allow us to instantly access online information and greatly improve cognitive powers by tapping into artificial intelligence.

Could you imagine “downloading” an entire set of encyclopedias into your brain in just seconds?

Someday, technology may make this entirely possible.

And in the not too distant future, we may actually have “mind reading machines” that can understand what you are thinking.  The following comes from a recent article in the Daily Mail

A mind-reaching machine that can translate thoughts into speech is coming closer to reality.

The research has been ongoing for several years, and recently, scientists successfully managed to playback a word that someone is thinking by monitoring their brain activity.

While there remains a long way to go, they say this could help victims of stroke and others with speech paralysis to communicate with their loved ones.

We will soon be living in a world that looks nothing like the world that our grandparents grew up in.  Technology is increasing at an exponential rate, and even now it is hard to grasp just how rapidly our planet is being transformed.

As technology becomes even more important to our lives, there will be even more of a push to move all transactions online.  That means phasing out the current system of physical cash and coins, and going to a system that will eventually be entirely cashless.

In fact, in some areas of the world this is already happening to a very large degree

In Sweden, 95 percent of all retail transactions are already cashless, and ATM machines are being removed by the hundreds.  In Denmark, government officials actually have a stated goal of “eradicating cash” by the year 2030.  And in Norway, the biggest bank in the country has publicly called for the complete elimination of all cash.

In Spain, all cash transactions of more than 2,500 euros have been banned, and in France and Italy all cash transactions of more than 1,000 euros have been banned.

We don’t have those kinds of caps on cash transactions in the United States just yet, but given enough time they would come eventually.

Right now, there are more than 400 billion cashless transactions conducted around the globe annually, and that number may hit 500 billion for 2016.

Of course in a fully cashless society the government would be able to serve as the gatekeeper for who is permitted to use the cashless system and who is not.  It would be all too easy for a tyrannical government to mandate that everyone receive a “government identification chip” before being allowed to buy or sell or do anything else online.  We are living at a time when the Book of Revelation is coming to life right in front of our eyes, and that is one of the reasons why I wrote my new book entitled “The Rapture Verdict”.  As our world starts going crazy, Bible prophecy is going to be the number one thing that people are interested in as far as the Christian faith is concerned, and so it is imperative that we have solid answers ready.

The stage is being set for the Mark of the Beast, and the time is coming when we are all going to be faced with some very tough choices.

When you and your family don’t have any food and you can’t buy or sell without proper “government-sponsored identification”, will you give in and do whatever they tell you to do?

You may not have to make that decision right now, but if you are able to stay alive long enough someday you will.

  • Jorma

    Another seminal article from this site. In addition to the technology being present for the Mark being rolled out, shouldn’t we also be concerned if this Mark goes on our right hand or forehead? Isn’t that what Scripture stated?

    I have the understanding that if anyone accepts this Mark, they are in effect, forever banned from Heaven, even with Christs redemption. I should caveat that I presume a Christian can’t take the Mark because of their faith in Jesus which would forbid us in making an allegiance to the State over Jesus.

    Any comments to mine?

    • iris

      Agree, Jorma. There will be a conscious awareness that to take it, will include allegiance to state over Jesus, as you said, and or allegiance to the coming one world religion/the antiChrist, although there may or may not be an articulation made which associates that entity or religion with what will take place. For Christians, we may be told that this mark or chip has nothing to do with religion, but the hallmark of it, according to Scripture, is that one cannot buy or sell without it, and that those who refuse it, will be beheaded. “If it looks like a duck…”. Perhaps, as Michael mentioned, it will be voluntary at first, and perhaps, even once it is mandatory, people won’t be killed who refuse it, immediately. But to not take it, will become a death sentence in time. Of course, it will mean separation from God for eternity if one takes that mark, and we all have to leave this earth in our present state one way or another, whether we’re raptured or die first. What would a few months or years at the most, of extended life be worth, compared to an eternity of suffering away from God’s loving side? We were warned almost 2000 years ago.

      • Jorma

        Excellent reply Iris, thank you and blessings back your way

        • iris

          God bless you, too! Longing for His return!

      • Paul Patriot

        Bless you dear sister for that wonderful comment. We are approaching times that will test our faith and allegiance to our Savior.

        We have to become more and more eternally minded now and not cling to this world.

        Grace be with you.

        • iris

          Thanks, and also with you, and you’re so right!

    • Squishy

      So… What if you put it on your left hand then or on your arm or on your cheek or on your butt or anywhere else that isn’t stated in the scripture?

    • jaxon64

      Much about this passage in The Revelation is often misquoted or misunderstood–the 2 biggest are:
      1) It is not “the beast” who has people take the mark but the false prophet.
      2) It is not necessarily the mark itself that is an affront to God Almighty, it is the fact that before one can receive the mark/chip/tattoo/ID–one must first WORSHIP and swear ALLEGIANCE to the beast and his image.
      There will be precursors to the eventual system which are simply advancing technology.
      PS: this is another contradiction for the “no rapture” people as pre-tribulation believers would have the demand of the mark occurring after the rapture. “post-tribulation” believers have a conundrum here–there are over a billion professing Christians and I’m sure that hundreds of millions are more than lip service. Christ tells us that none of those who once called by His name will be lost to Him. Yet receiving the mark is an automatic condemnation. There is no mention in Revelation of hundreds of millions of ordered executions–let alone the logistics of actually carrying out and disposing of that many corpses of Christians. Nope, the Christians must already be gone before this event takes place.

      • Gay Veteran

        “Much about this passage in The Revelation is often misquoted or misunderstood…”


      • iris

        Possibly, but remember the verse in Rev. which says that the beast will make war against the saints and will overcome them. Not spiritually, but physically.

      • PK Hodges

        Not so, dear friend. All these things are happening, and we’re still here. Who taught that the believers would escape the Great Tribulation, which is “The Great Persecution”? The Bible does not teach it. The Apostles did not teach it, yet both Peter and Paul warned that ravenous wolves would come into the body in order to tear the church apart from within through the introduction of false teachings, traditions and myths, and oh, yes, opinions of great sounding false doctrine. I, for one, was really curious to learn who started this “escape doctrine.” It was a guy named Iraneaus. He was said to be a disciple of John’s. Iraneaus also started the teaching that the two witnesses are none other than Enoch and Elijah in the flesh.
        We, the church, will not be gone, because the Lord God is bringing us out of divisions once again, in a bigger way during this great End Time Harvest of souls, and uniting us together in Christ Jesus to do the same works that Jesus did when He was here 2,000 years ago, through us, “so that the world may know that He loves us as much as He loves Jesus,” and so the world may know that He, and He alone is God. This is what He is preparing us for when we are shown the church being judged by Jesus. We are judged first. Our steps are corrected just like in Jesus’ day, when anyone who heard John the Baptist corrected their steps to prepare their hearts for the first coming of the Messiah. The Lord Jesus is uniting us in Him, the same as He was united in the Father, so that we will bring forth much fruit. Centre on John 15. Jesus is the true vine, we are the branches. Then go on to John 17. We are called to continue the works of Jesus, same as the early disciples were. We are sent ones. We are the eyes on that rock. We are little Christs (being created in His image) in an Anti-Christ world.
        We are those seven lamps on the solid gold lampstand. Zechariah and John both saw us. John saw Jesus in our midst. We will judge the world through our righteous acts.

        And that beast? Keep on chewing on Revelation 13 and 17. The false prophet is the head. It rides the beast. Those two beastly boys are joined together. And both are here right now, today.

  • Daddyotis

    I’m with Michael. I will not allow myself or my family to be microchipped. I don’t care if it involves going against what “the authorities” deem as “safe & appropriate”. They are quite welcome to kiss my as $.

  • robert

    One thing for sure, the government will have to become a lot more efficient to pull off such a feat. Think Obamacare, TSA, VA etc. Long way to go.

    • JF

      Well, efficiency certainly is NOT a trademark of the current administration. Unless you want to consider how fast a nation can be dragged into ruin – there they have been very efficient.

  • michael malachi

    This will all be implemented very soon, but it will be done by the world government head. Possibly the united nations. It will be voluntary at first but it will be marketed very well with testimonials from recipients of the chip. The chip will include all banking, purchases, financials, deeds and ownership rights, medical records and device uses, travel, and much more of your personal life than you can imagine. Those who take the chip will become cyborgs – but to a greater degree than anyone can imagine. The chip will be used to connect the brain of the recipient to the internet. Those not having the chip will not be able to compete. These questions remain to be answered: Will those who control the internet be able to implant thoughts or be able to control the masses with this technology? Will a recipient be able to send thought-mail and what complications will arise from the lack of privacy? I contend that there will be a massive loss of trust, love and respect for the fellow man. Hate will breed hate and this system is bound to destroy itself at the cost of humanity.
    The Bible gives us ample warning to stay away from this “mark of the beast” technology. Get yourself right with God because the time is getting near for the end of all things.

    • iris

      Agree! It might not be able to read thoughts, but project them, possibly, and I’ll bet you’re right about most of it.

  • watchmannonthewall

    Do you think it is just a coincidence that Moses told us we are to write God’s commandments on our hands and put them between our eyes and the “mark of the beast” is a something on the hand and/or something between our eyes? Does the devil ever counterfeit what God said or what God has done?

    “And these words which I am commanding you today shall be ON your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up, And you shall bind them as a sign [Strong’s Hebrew #226- “owth”- “Owth means, sign, MARK.”] on your hand and they shall be as frontels on your forehead [it can be seen].” (Deut. 6:8)

    God has a “mark”, and so does satan!! The question is, “Whose mark is on our hand or forehead?” One of the two has marked us! God specifically tells us how we are to be marked! By walking in a way different than the world!

    Do you think it is also a coincidence that one must have, be in possession of, the “mark of the beast” to be able to buy or sell BUT God says those who keep His holy days are NOT to buy and sell on those days? Does the devil ever counterfeit what God said or what God has done? God says the Sabbath is a sign, “owth”, between Him and His people! Satan hates the sabbaths!! Paul said Christ is the substance of the Sabbaths! (Col. 2:17)

    Nehemiah 13:15-22 speaks of how Nehemiah reprimanded the sons and nobels of Judah for allowing things to be bought and sold on the Sabbath, reminding them that God sent Israel into captivity to Babylon for the very same thing, as well as not allowing the land a Sabbath rest every 7 years. Nehimiah had the gates of Jerusalem closed at sundown for the Sabbath so there would be no buying or selling.

    Jeremiah confirmed this: “Then He brought up against them the Chaldeans who slew their young men…” and all the treasures of Jerusalem were taken to Babylon. “Then they burned the house of God and broke down the wall of Jerusalem and burned all its fortified buildings…And those who escaped from the sword he [Nebuchadnezzer] carried away into Babylon…to fulfill the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed its sabbaths. And all of the days of its desolation it kept sabbath until 70 years were complete.” (2 Chr. 36:17-21)

    Do you realize the inhabitants of the land during the time of Jesus were still not keeping the 7th year land sabbath, even though God specifically told them He was sending them into the Babylonian captivity for not doing this 600 years earlier?

    Josephus tells us how they manipulated the rules to allow themselves to still have the land produce for themselves and to keep their debtors, some of whom were to be freed. Did God send them out of the land for this again? Yes! Have they kept the 7th year rest for the land since they came back in 1948? No! Does God mean what He says or does He just talk because He likes the sound of His own voice?

    In “The Revelation of Jesus Christ”, we are told that the gates of the New Jerusalem will never be shut. “And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine upon it , for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. And the nations shall walk by its light [His Light!], and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory into it. And in the daytime (for there shall be no night there) its gates shall never be closed.” (Rev. 21:23-25)

    Why will the gates never be closed? Because since He is the Light and all men will walk by His Light [“Thy Word (Jesus is ‘The Word’) is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path”, Ps. 119:105], no one will attempt to buy or sell at the times God said not to, i.e., there will be no temptation to walk in disobedience anymore! Praise God!! Once His Law is written on the heart, we will delight to please Him by obeying Him in all things!

    • iris

      (: Thank you!

    • watchmannonthewall

      I need to correct myself: There are groups of people in Israel who are keeping the Sabbatical, Shemita, years and letting the land lie fallow. Not many, but a few. Please accept my apology for the misrepresentation if you happen to belong to one of those groups.

    You should also note the EU is bring a law to ban conspiracy theories/prophecy and put people into reeducation camps if they do not comply!

    The number of the Beast is a brain controlling chip and the 600, 60, 6 in Hebrew script looks very much like a mini usb jack is you put the rectangle(6) inside the circle type character (60) and then put them both inside the square(600).

    U.S. Magazine Captures Prince Charles ‘Kissing Boy Toy’


    This man who has no desire for women and his marriage is only a front has been behind the gayification of western societies through his elect servants in the public sector as well as the religious sector.

    The head of the Anglican Church of England and it’s offshoots is the Royal family, were a big push for gayification first came from, followed by the public sector through the Masons and other fraternities who rule both his country and other Commonwealth countries. The head organisation over all these secret societies is the Royal Garter(ruled by the head of the royal family).

    Again you will observe that the Western nations are being overwhelmed by Muslim refugees and again this is the doing of this man who calls himself the “Defender of the Faiths” and pays homage to the god of forces, force to worship their god of die”. When he is in power of the UN he will put himself over all gods/God.

    Daniel 11:37-39King James Version (KJV)
    37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor
    regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

    38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his
    fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with
    precious stones, and pleasant things.

    39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall
    acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule
    over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

    Daniel also talks about a Lion Beast man who arises after the Lion(England) has its eagle (US) wings ripped off (The War of Independents.) which is proudly displayed on the Royal Coat of arms. Revelation tells us the number of the beast is the number of a man again referring to the Lion Beast Man and it also tells us the the Beast(UN) will have a Lion’s mouth(English voice).

    Frankly, while it is another step toward the end times coming to fruition, and I have no doubt it is going to take place (Revelation), what occurs to me is it is, again, all about money. The sleazy folks running the show want more and more of what little we have. Just think about this: Every swipe of the card gives a percentage of the sale to the bank or card company…. Cash or barter transactions don’t feed the beast so just try to wrap your head around the amount of money the creeping beast mongers would get if and when it is demanded that cash and barter transactions are forbidden… pray, prep and protect…

  • “The stage is being set for the Mark of the Beast, and the time is coming when we are all going to be faced with some very tough choices.”

    Any Blood-bought Holy Spirit-sealed Christian will never be faced with that decision.

    • Keith Oliver

      At the top of the page you can find Michael Snyder’s Book ‘The Rapture Verdict’ which totally destroys the idea of a pre-trib rapture. There is only one rapture which comes at the end of the Great Tribulation.

      • Jorma

        I am not convinced that enough evidence supports an all inclusive post trib rapture. Or pre, or mid trib. Meaning, if the Holy Spirit is removed from the World before the Tribulation begins, a post trib removal suggests that those Christians whom remain would live in one of the most oppressive and evil times in history without the presence of the Holy Spirit. However, Scripture states that there are 144,000 Jews that will miracously have the Spirit after this removal and anyone else who doesn’t is left out, literally, based on their eternal choice; not in the Book of Life, and because of that certainly not going before the Bema Seat. Additionally, what about being “shewn” a mystery and in the twinkling of an eye we are transformed. How can a post trib plan accommodate that? That means we are transformed after the fact but for what? I understand that there are 3 models at play here, but after hearing many go at it over this argument over many decades, I have learned two things: 1. I don’t think any human being has conclusively nailed this one way or another, including Michaels position, and 2. It doesn’t really matter, we still have to keep going to the end whether we get a parachute 3 years before hand or not.

        Today we need to be salt, and tomorrow we need to be the salt, and we keep keep going up to the appointed time. Does the Trib really matter when there is other critical work to be done?

        • iris

          (: That right! “Whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s”, and we are to be about His business, first, last and always.
          I believe that if Christians do have to go through any or all of the Tribulation, we won’t be without Him, though, because He’s living in us through His Holy Spirit.

      • watchmannonthewall

        I read his book a few weeks ago just to see what Michael wrote. Already well aware the gathering of the elect is a post trib- pre-wrath gathering but wanted to see how he put scripture together and compared passages to one another.
        A great job and I believe he also did a great job presnting the condradictions inherent in the pre-trib or mid-trib positions. There is scripture that simply will not line up with either position.
        I highly recommend reading the book, know you already did, and carefully consider his presentation. As we come to the end of this age God is going to be revealing not only the Truth of scriptures we didn’t understand before, but also it’s depth. This is fully consistant with what happened when Jesus, Yeshua, came in the first advent.

    • Yes we will. It is God’s elect, the saints who will be persecuted, beheaded.

      Who are God’s elect?
      Those sanctified by His Spirit, who obeyed Him and were cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ.

      elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of
      the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ

    Well… lucky for Christians we will not have to be here when the mark of the beast is truly revealed… we will be raptured away. That’s for the ones that never accepted Christ as their Savior, the left behind ones.

    • Mike Malnar

      Just keep believing that, you and most others are wrong. Why would it even be in the Bible if what you say is true. For some will accept the mark and others want. The ones who do not, is obvious to be righteous people and have not got caught up in the air yet.

    • carson

      what is rev 7:17 with 14 as a highlight, along with rev 15:2.
      How can these have come out of the GREAT trib (and matthew 24:15-21 has the best summery of when the GREAT trib starts=abomination of desolation, THEN, GREAT tribulation) how could they come out of it if they’d already been removed from it beforehand? How could they overcome the beast mark and worship if they’d been removed before the beasts era?

      And, when are these seen in heaven?
      Before the 7 vials of wrath, and we’re not appointed to wrath, both the white throne judgement nor the wrath poured out during the vials.
      (and study the 3 sets of judgements=which have ‘wrath’ tied to them? The 7 seals? no. The 7 trumps? no. The 7 vials? yes.
      That’s pre-wrath position.

      Well you are probably absolutely correct, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that 2K yrs ago it was written that a day is coming when you would be like your stewed tomatoes at the check out line.

    • carson

      but why does the devil what a mark and worship?
      Should we have our focus stuck on the world and men of the world and how they steer it? Or focused on the one whose ensnared men of the world and has them captured to do his will?
      2nd timothy 2:26, the devil has men ensnared..and the devil don’t care about money etc, but it’s one snare tool he uses.

      all this truth about snares, is why Christ said He came to set the captives free.

      • carson

        add-we should be focused on the Lord of course.
        BUT when examining things going on we should see that the devil moves those of the flesh, and again the devil don’t care about menkinds monies and that sort of stuff, just tools he uses to ensnare and lure menkind to do his deeds and make ready for his short time he’ll have here as shown in rev 12:12.

  • If I am told to let something be implanted in my right hand or in my forehead and that without it I will not be able to buy or sell (just like the Bible says), then I will know that is the mark of the beast and I will not take it!

    • iris

      same here! Getting beheaded would be a very quick way to die, if believers are brought to that place and time. People sure have been brought to it in the ME. I know where I’m going, so although it might be frightening to face, God will strengthen me.

        • iris

          God bless you, too, Amanda. Yes, our lives are in His loving hands!

    • And just to add to my comment….those who receive the mark of the beast will receive the spirit of antichrist because they will worship the beast. Taking the mark goes hand in hand with worship of the beast.

      • iris


    • carson

      I figure you know this but for many who don’t, and there are plenty who don’t-
      …but is refusing the mark=salvation? (and DO refuse the mark of course).
      But there’s more to it, Rev 13:8..your name in the Lambs (Christ’s) book of life.
      Salvation is in Christ, those in Christ would not take the mark to boot!
      But some folks who are not in Christ suppose that simply refusing the mark means eternity in heaven, no, one must be born again in Christ.
      Refusing the mark keeps the chance alive that they might also receive Christ, but taking the mark closes that chance out, closes the door as Rev 19:21 shows the remnant were slain and over to rev 20:11-15 we see them resurrected and judged to the lake of fire.
      Life is in Christ, there is no other way.

      • iris

        No other way. I think there is a place in Rev. where it says that only those who know Christ, and or are marked by Him, (perhaps this will be an invisible mark, but surely the seal of the Holy Spirit from God’s perspective) will refuse the mark of the beast. That’s how big a temptation it’s going to be for unbelievers to take that mark. It might very well be a huge temptation for Christians, too, but those who know Him, will trust Him enough to say no, even to death.

        • Yes Holy Spirit is our seal.

        • Carolann

          We as Catholics Mark ourselves when we make The Sign Of The Cross. Also, before The Gospel reading we make The Sign Of The Cross on our forehead, lips and heart.

          Hi Iris.
          Rev 13:8? all whose names aren’t in Christ the Lambs book of life will worship that man of sin/anti-christ.
          That’s a good truth/verse to bring up to the fence riders, it’s not simply saying no to the mark (but ALL should say NO) but being saved/born again in Christ.

          Taking the mark closes the door to ever hearing God the Father calling one to Christ. Closes out the chance they could be saved.
          Rev 14:9-10=take the mark? drink of the wine of the wrath of God, take the mark-door closed.

          Over in 2nd thess 2 we see people fall to the strong delusion sent by God Himself..why? for what reason do they fall? Because they had priorly refused the love of the Truth, and Christ Jesus is that Truth.
          That’s another of some of the strongest warning verses in the bible…who can stand by their own power/strength against the strong delusion that God will send in that day? Is why people should not run from God but RUN TO HIM to be saved! Is why He sent His Son, to SAVE people!

          Anyway Rejoice in Christ always even during the storms! :))

            Amen, Carson, and thanks for the verses.

      • Yes, they must be born again said Lord Jesus. So even if they refuse the mark, yet deny the Lord Jesus, they are doomed.
        Hopefully they come to Christ because everyone will be persecuted who refuses the mark I think, not just Christians.
        Then again, those that reject Christ will accept the mark because without it they won’t be able to buy or sell. They have no hope like Christians do, so they will submit to it.

        • carson

          Yep. And I hope many will read this truth. The whole reason I commented thus was because there are so many I encounter who are ‘fence riders’ their outside of Christ yet say they’ll refuse the mark and suppose that that and their own goodness (self righteousness) will gain them heaven,

          they also forget there’s no guarantee that they’ll survive the Great trib! They suppose they’ll survive ..somehow, based on themselves and preps, but to die outside/apart from Christ is just that, apart/outside of Christ.

          At least most of them will give some ear to the word of God so hopefully some of them will come fully to Christ to be saved and stop the fence riding self strength self goodness self lordships…

      Sadly most people christians included will take the mark happily and accept it with out complaint due to being taught a false doctorine. It will be us who are seen as terrorist, and dissedents to be rounded up and done away with. God is truly the only thing that can protect us.

      • iris

        God does promise to keep those who put their hope and trust in Him. I believe that’s a huge part of what the gospel is about, that He has, is and will do in us and through us what we are not able to, because of our weakness. I think there are plenty of people who have thought or told others they were/are Christian, but they really don’t understand that God’s righteousness and love, God’s grace and mercy and will, God’s faithfulness and doing and sovereignty, etc., not our own, is the crux. I “self identified” as a Christian in my youth, but didn’t understand the plan of salvation, and my life showed it. Thanks to God, when I really understood the gospel and actually believed and received Him, change started from the inside out, immediately. I suddenly knew the difference between lip service and a living relationship.

        I so agree with you about believers being vilified and those who resist evil and stand for the truth, getting rounded up and done away with. I don’t know if that will mean all Christians, but like you said, God can protect us. If He allows us to die, it will be because that is the very best. May His will be done.

    People like myself are loaded with implants. It won’t affect anything of import. Everyone is chock full of nanites too from chemtrails, food, drink, etc. You cant’ escape it. What matters is your heart……not what they do to you…..

    Whoever calls on the name of Jehovah will be saved! Acts 2:21 quoted from Joel 2:32 in the NWT. The rest will be put to shame and perish for not acknowledging our Fathers personal name, Jehovah Psalms 83:16-18 KJV

    The “sudden” and “huge push” is an illusion which comes from less than 0.1% of society. Sure, they hold a lot of sway but just do this simple thing. Ignore them and go about your life. You don’t need their technology as much as they lead you to believe. We were doing just fine twenty and thirty years ago.

    We can reinvent the Internet to suite our own needs and not be dependent on their Satanic technologies.

    What is the devil trying to do here? Take away the right of choice that our Creator, the only true God gave us. The devil is a thief, a liar, a killer and a destroyer. In England, it is the law of the land these days to have our dogs chipped. Long ago, I did a teaching on the mark of the Beast and Antichrist system we’re living in. When I researched this mark (Biometrics) I also discovered that some people who are diagnosed with alzheimers are being chipped too. I understood this to be in the USA, in fact. Of course, Obama has promoted chipping with his health care program.So is Walmart and others. Always, the devil tries to make things look so natural, unavoidable, easy, and irresistible.
    Many nations world wide are yelling for a cashless society. Cashless is more “convenient”. Cashless is “easier”. Cashless is “safer.”

    Different nations, including the UK and European nations such as Belgium, for one (along with others), are “testing” biometrics (iris scanning and finger printing) at passport renewal time. It is optional at the moment, but that won’t last very long.
    Mark my words, the devil has been leading us down the merry path of cashlessness for a long, long time. He does this a step at a time. If he did it all at once, it would spook everyone out. But these days he’s got most of the population so indoctrinated through the virtual reality he feeds them in commercials, in tv shows, in movies, in music, in gaming. The global population of this world is being moulded into his image–you know the one, that great big red dragon in Revelation 12. This is not for twenty years in the future. We don’t have that long. Everything Jesus predicted is to happen in THIS GENERATION, not later. “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.”
    So is the generation Jesus speaks of 70 years, which is what man’s lifespan is set at in the Bible (cause every year over is a bonus year, according to the Lord)? The counting would begin at the key time when Israel was declared a nation again in 1948. Those 70 years are almost up, guys!
    Of course, many debate and say, “No, that’s wrong. A generation is 40 years.” I think God’s got this belief covered,too. When I taught on this (from the Word), I was astounded to discover that Jerusalem was regained in 1967. Count those years between 1967 and 2016, and whadda you got? We’re nearly there ether way you look at it. We’re nearly there.
    This article on the push for the mark connects with all the others. It’s connect-the-dots time, folks! Especially that article about shops and entire malls standing empty. You should see the shops in Nuneaton, the town I live near. Many are empty. Big stores are closing down, little stores are closing down. The market on Wednesdays and Saturdays and where everyone has traditionally used cash is shrinking FAST. Every week there are less stalls. Meanwhile those big fat cats are moving as much as they can online in preparation of the same cashless society John saw. It is here, and Jesus is on His way.
    PS/ Did anyone hear that the UK’s new 5 pound note? It’s not paper. It’s plastic. Talk is that it can be wiped clean (how convenient) and used for the next five years…problem with that prediction is that the world lies. John tells us this. Jesus tells us this. Don’t you believe it. We won’t be here another five years, not in this evil age. It’ll all be down to the choice the devil doesn’t want us to have. Those of us who have chosen to follow the Lord Jesus, and to be shaped into His image, will be in the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ or those ones who (by their words) have been shaped in to the image of the Beast will be damned. It’s your choice. I know my choice already. I choose to follow life through the Lord Jesus Christ. How about you? What’s your choice?

    • iris

      Thanks! Choose while you still can, because sin enslaves. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. “The battle is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, and powers of the air (spiritual forces). There is deliverance and protection spiritually in Christ. This is His battle and He will win it, for those who trust in Him.

  • carson

    why the rush…
    Rev 12:12 shows satan with all this wrath, because by then he has only a short time.
    So he does all he can today and before that day to get those ensnared to him to make ready, build the infrastructure, for his short time.

    Interesting, Rev 13 shows the dragon/satan empowers the AC/beast…
    So does satan come down first/just prior to the empowerment of the beastman? So that he’s here and ready to empower the beast when that time comes?
    Either way keep looking up fixed on Christ

  • JT

    Have you heard of Blockchain? It looks like this might be a prelude to the cashless technology that will be a mainstay of the mark of the Beast!

  • Richard

    The problem is not the “cashless society”. It is the bankers at Goldman Sachs and HSBC whom “control” the govt that are the problem. Cut out the cancer that continually brings us war, misery, usary and whom these individuals never seem to get justice – execute these people and you will remove 95% of the problems in the world.
