IT’S COMING: THE MARK OF THE BEAST

The Independent reports that Swedish workers were implanted with microchips– the size of one grain of rice– to replace cash cards and ID passes.

Microchips are injected in between the thumb and index figure and injected with a syringe.

The Associated Press reports:

“What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish startup hub Epicenter. The company offers to implant its workers and startup members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers, or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand.”

The injections have become so popular that workers at Epicenter hold parties for those willing to get implanted.

Patrick Mesterton, co-founder and CEO of Epicenter, says the microchip basically “replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.”

The human microchip is similar to the one used for pets. Except these chips show how often an employee comes to work or what they buy at a store.

Epicenter oversees more than 100 companies and roughly 2,000 employees. It began implanting some employees with microchips four years ago, in January 2015.

“The data that you could possibly get from a chip that is embedded in your body is a lot different from the data that you can get from a smartphone,” Ben Libberton, a microbiologist at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute told the AP. “Conceptually you could get data about your health, you could get data about your whereabouts, how often you’re working, how long you’re working if you’re taking toilet breaks, and things like that.”

Microchips throw privacy out the window. Imagine all of the data collected and stored in your hand– what happens to it, who uses it, for what, and why– is completely out of the control of the user. People who willingly become chipped are quite literally giving their lives away.

The prophet of the beast (Antichrist) causes all to be marked on the right hand or the forehead so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.Revelation 13:16-17

And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast (Antichrist) and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.Revelation 14:9

The consequences of taking the mark of the beast are dreadful. Repent of your rebellion against God and accept Jesus’ offer of salvation made possible by His sacrifice on your behalf. Be baptised as a witness of your dying to self and rising to new life in Christ. You have been born again by the Holy Spirit. He will enable you to live the Christian life, reject the mark of the beast, and face whatever persecution comes your way.

HEADING TOWARDS THE MARK OF THE BEAST

Globalists like the United Nations and the World Economic Forum which is controlled by billionaires like Bill Gates, are now openly proclaiming transhumanism as if it’s a good thing. Saying it will eliminate free will and the concept of human souls. This of course means such a person loses the ability to be saved by Jesus. Watch this episode of Last Days Breaking News with Nelson Walters to see actual video footage of a leading expert and advisor of the World Economic Forum and Klaus Schwab freely describe how AI and brain to computer implants will forever change the world – and how this matches up with Bible Prophecy.

So much of end times, Bible prophecy is lining up in our day whether it be floods, droughts, famine, pestilence, apostasy. wars and rumours of wars. The Apostle, John must have wondered about what the mark of the Beast would be and it is only in our day that the technology is available to make it a reality.

THE GREAT RESET ANOTHER END TIMES SIGN

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.”2 Timothy 3:1-5

The rapid rise of the globalist agenda is hell-bent on forming Satan’s prophesied one-world government. This nefarious movement is called The Great Reset. World Economic Forum (WEC) Founder Klaus Schwab co-authors book The Great Reset. The Corona Virus epidemic has enabled the WEC to bring forward their agenda for a one-world government.

How is the Great Reset using technology to change our culture towards globalism? In this video, Nathan Jones of Lamb and Lion Ministries explores how Satan is using today’s technologies to unite the world under his new culture and ethos. Nathan first begins by analyzing how drastically this modern-day tech culture is negatively affecting our vulnerable youth. Next, he identifies Satan’s insidious end-goal and then reveals his overarching strategy towards making this goal a soon reality.

No other generation in the past has been subjected to as many distractions as the Millennials and Gen-Zs of today. Gen-Zs, in particular, have lived their entire lives never having known what life was like without being connected to the Internet 24/7 and their mobile devices. This characteristic has led Jean Twenge, a professor of psychology at San Diego State University, to label Millennials and Gen-Zs as Generation Me and iGen respectively. And, after having reviewed two studies about classroom attention spans, led columnist Victoria Barret to label the children of today as the Distracted Generation.

A great price has been paid psychologically for these endless distractions. Barret cites a Pew Research Center finding where nearly 90% of teachers surveyed said that digital technologies were creating “an easily distracted generation with short attention spans.”

In a Common Sense study, 71% of teachers surveyed said they thought technology was hurting attention spans “somewhat” or “a lot,” with 60% concluding that online distractions hindered their students’ ability to write and communicate in person. Almost half of the teachers concluded that continual distractions also hurt critical thinking and homework skills.

Well, this ever-connected, though ever-connected to their “friends” over social media, losing in-person human relationships has caused Gen-Zs to find themselves increasingly homebound, jobless, lonely, dislocated, lethargic, physically weakened, depressed, taking prescription pain killers, and even 35% more likely to commit suicide than previous less-technical generations.

Technology and the many devices that connect us provide great benefits to the individual and society, but in the wrong hands, they can produce great harm. The lord of all evil, Satan knows this. He’s had a plan going for thousands of years, since the beginning of his corrupting influence on humanity, and it continues to this day. The only difference between then and now is that Satan has added technology to his strategy for reaching his insidious goal.

Nathan sets out to identify the big picture view of what is going on with the Great Reset and to identify Satan’s end goal and his overarching strategy. Finally, he reveals a number of the technologies which combined culminate into the ultimate device that Satan now employs to help achieve his nefarious objective.

Satan’s goal and strategy: What is it exactly?

The book of Isaiah provides a first-hand narrative of exactly what Satan has long been attempting to achieve. He said,

I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.” Isaiah 14:13

So, what strategy does Satan employ in his attempt to reach his sinister goal of establishing his global empire and so garner the praise of mankind? Well, he continues to follow the same five-step strategy he did back in the Garden of Eden.

Step number one, Satan’s goal is to distract. The first step in his nefarious strategy is to steal planet Earth from mankind by distracting God’s children just as he did Eve.

Step number two is self-focus. So, with Eve’s mind distracted away from all she possessed to know only what she could not have, Satan implemented the second step in his strategy to wrest the world away from humanity. He made the humans focus not on a loving God and their countless blessings, but on themselves.

Step number three, destroy mankind’s relationships with God and each other.

Step number four, Satan keeps humanity divided so that they cannot threaten his earthly rule.

Step number five, Satan employs globalization by creating a newly shared culture and morality (depraved). This great reset of the global culture is meant to bring about a false sense of harmony and result in the reunification of discordant nations, but all under the control of Satan’s new world order.

Evangelism expert, Rick Richardson describes the characteristics of this brave, new post-modern culture as including “a common belief that all people are their own gods, they often engage in identity politics, they are rampantly distrustful of authority, they hold a general belief that love rules, they have an overt fear of “the patriarchy,” they readily discard whatever came before, and they tend to view Christians as self-serving.”

With the advent of today’s vast technologies, the pinnacle being the smartphone and the soon coming metaverse, Satan has found the perfect devices in which to mold his new unifying ethos and culture.

Security technologies include the Orwellian-realized world of constant monitoring via cameras, microphones, and smart assistants such as Siri, Echo, and Google Home. They are always listening to you. For example, since 2014 when Amazon unveiled the Echo speaker featuring Alexa, its voice-activated virtual-assistant software, they hired armies of low-paid Amazon employees to listen in and transcribe your conversations. They glean very personal security information from it. And, they said it was to make the product better, to improve its service.

With the new technologies, totalitarian governments get involved in security monitoring. A good example is China’s Social Credit Score. It is a forerunner to the Biblical “Mark of the Beast“, It has already been instituted in their more populous cities. And countries throughout the world are buying up its system. China’s Communist government has infiltrated millions of cameras everywhere in order to spy on their citizens, including the cameras built into cellphones. Computer algorithms then rate the citizen’s allegiance to the government, granting benefits to those who are more loyal and restrictions on those people deemed not to be patriotic enough. Many other countries are adopting this system and I am sure it will eventually become a worldwide system.

God has given us many prophecies about the time before Jesus returns to set up His Millennial Kingdom. He wants us to know so we can use the time wisely to complete the work He has called us to do. Also, there are many end times ministries that God has set up to alert His people such as Lamb and Lion Ministries, Nelson Walters YouTube videos, and even my own http://www.livingeternal.net and more recently http://www.millennialkingdom.net which is in the process of being set up. Shortly a series of PowerPoint Sermons will go up in the Resources section. Take a look, I appreciate helpful feedback. Unity within the body is essential (John 17).

METAVERSE – THE NEXT GENERATION OF CONNECTIVITY

In a single day, Facebook was renamed, but Meta is much more than a name. Zuckerberg may create the metaverse but the Antichrist will use it. Why is the metaverse going to be more addictive than social media and why will it lead to the Mark of the Beast and the Image of the Beast? Watch this Last Days Breaking News episode with Nelson Walters to discover the hidden dangers of this new technology.

 Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, “has long imagined a virtual world where people work, play and interact.” Virtual offices can be entered and you can interact with a computer. Zuckerberg, with billions of dollars and a massive Facebook audience, is investing in a future unlike any present version of social media or video gaming. A recent Wall Street Journal article said, “The metaverse represents a digital reality where people playing through avatars would be able to attend concerts with friends or try on clothes in stores, just as they would offline out in the real world.”

A person would access this online world as an avatar, a digital version of oneself. You could attend a concert with another “avatar friend,” go shopping and try on clothes and then go to work as well. All of this is done in an immersive experience using ocular technology already developed. I will leave it to your imagination as to what other activities one could engage in within this digitally contrived world and what impact it will have on our children.

PROPHESIED END TIMES SIGNS

When the Holy Spirit inspired John to write in Revelation about the mark of the Beast (Antichrist), that he will force all who live on the earth to take this mark otherwise they cannot buy or sell, John must have wondered how this would be done. Almost two thousand years later the technology is in use today with microchips being inserted into peoples hands so they can buy and sell just by waving their hand over a digital reader.

Also it (Antichrist) causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.Revelation 13:16-17

An X-ray shows the implanted microchips.

Technology is changing fast, Amazon recently announced it’s rolling out its “Just Walk Out” cashier-less technology across its Whole Foods Stores.

This innovation is being driven by Amazon’s palm-scanning technology, which allows users to scan their palm and register it with their Amazon account. The technology analyzes the shape and size of the hand, and it can “see” the veins inside. This creates a biometric identifier exclusive to each member.

The rollout will enable consumers to walk into Whole Foods, scan their palms or a bar code on their phones, load up their carts with groceries, and then leave the store. When they walk out, their Amazon account will automatically be charged for the products they took with them.

Here is what the completely contactless palm scanner looks like:

Chart

To have a completely cashier-less space, cameras throughout the store powered by artificial intelligence and computer vision (CV) track every product consumers take from the shelves.

There will be up-front costs for installing this technology. However, in the long run this will drastically reduce labor expenses for Whole Foods stores.

After perfecting this technology, it makes sense for Amazon to begin licensing this technology for other stores to use. Checkout lines are nearly a thing of the past.

And for Amazon, all three of these items will not only make shopping quicker, they will allow the company to collect more data on all users. And that will enable Amazon to more effectively target ads to users… and make more sales.

For me apostasy in the church, which is compromising with the world, discarding God’s Word and His values, is the “end times” sign that is both stark and sad. They should take to heart the warning given in Hebrews>

For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt.Hebrews 6:4-6

THE W.E.C. GREAT RESET-FORERUNNER TO MYSTERY BABYLON AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST

Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum define the Great Reset in terms of the convergence of economic, monetary, technological, medical, genomic, environmental, military, and governance systems. The Great Reset would involve vast transformations in each of these domains, changes which, according to Schwab, will not only alter our world but also lead us to “question what it means to be human.” In terms of economics and monetary policy, the Great Reset would involve a consolidation of wealth, on the one hand, and the likely issuance of universal basic income (UBI) on the other. It will invariably include a shift to a digital currency, including a consolidated centralization of banking and bank accounts, immediate real-time taxation, negative interest rates, and centralized surveillance and control over spending and debt.

While every aspect of the Great Reset involves technology, the Great Reset specifically entailsthe Fourth Industrial Revolution,or transhumanism, which includes the expansion of genomics, nanotechnology, and robotics and their penetration into human bodies and brains.

Of course, the fourth Industrial Revolution involves the redundancy of human labour in increasing sectors, to be replaced by automation. But moreover, Schwab hails the use of nanotechnology and brain scans to predict and pre-empt human behaviour. The Great Reset means the issuance of medical passports, soon to be digitized, as well as the transparency of medical records inclusive of medical history, genetic makeup, and disease states.
They indicate it could include the implanting of microchips (Mark of the Beast) that would read and report on genetic makeup and brain states such that even crossing a national border might one day involve a detailed brain scan to assess an individual’s security risk

In terms of governance, the Great Reset means increasingly centralized, coordinated, and expanded government and “governmentalities,” the convergence of corporations and states, and the digitalization of governmental functions, including, with the use of 5G and predictive algorithms, real-time tracking and surveillance of bodies in space or the “anticipatory governance” of human and systems behaviour.

Suffice it to say for now that the WEF envisions a bio-techno-feudalist global order, with socioeconomic planners and corporate “stakeholders” at the helm and the greater part of humanity in their thrall.

The mass of humanity, the planners would have it, will live under an economic stasis of reduced expectations, with individual autonomy greatly curtailed if not utterly obliterated. As Mises suggested, such planners are authoritarians who mean to supplant the plans of individual actors with their own, centralized plans.

Is the United Nations about to become the One World Government ruled by global billionaires? Will this be Mystery Babylon of Rev 17-18?

The World Economic Forum is driving this process right now with help from Bill Gates and the Rockefeller Foundation. Our Governments know it and don’t oppose it. Once it assumes power, how does the United Nations match the biblical prophecies of Mystery Babylon? What will be its capital city? Watch this Nelson Walters video to discover our future.

MARK OF THE BEAST AND PATENT 060606

At a recent International Christian Chamber of Commerce Zoom Meeting, the founder of ICCC Gunner Olsen showed us a copy of a recent Microsoft Patent. Patent WO/2020/060606 was registered on 26 March 2020. The patent application was filed by Microsoft Technology Licensing, LLC, headed by Bill Gates, back on 20 June 2019, and, on 22 April 2020, the patent was granted international status. The title of the patent is “Cryptocurrency system using body activity data”. Physical, biological, and digital data.

It (Antichrist) causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.Revelation 13:16-18

So, what is this invention that the people at Microsoft decided to patent? The abstract of the patent application online states: “Human body activity associated with a task provided to a user may be used in a mining process of a cryptocurrency system. A server may provide a task to a device of a user which is communicatively coupled to the server. A sensor communicatively coupled to or comprised in the device of the user may sense body activity of the user. Body activity data may be generated based on the sensed body activity of the user. The cryptocurrency system communicatively coupled to the device of the user may verify if the body activity data satisfies one or more conditions set by the cryptocurrency system, and award cryptocurrency to the user whose body activity data is verified.” It will enable people to buy and sell as long as certain physical, biological, and digital data conditions are met.

Bill Gates, Vaccinations, Microchips, And Patent 060606 since 29/04/2020

In other words, a chip will be inserted into the body that monitors a person’s daily physical activity in return for cryptocurrency. If conditions are met, then the person can transact the purchase or contract. A detailed description of the “invention” provides 28 concepts for how the device could be used.

It also provides a list of countries for which the invention is intended. Essentially, this is all the members of the United Nations and a few regional organisations specified separately – the European Patent Office, the Eurasian Patent Organization, and two African intellectual property protection organisations.

Although inserting microchips into the body is nothing new – the Masonic Youth Child Identification Program has been in operation in the US for a while, and people calling themselves cyborgs exhibit various implants – Microsoft’s involvement is interesting. And why has the patent been given the code number 060606? Is it a coincidence or the deliberate choice of what is referred to in the Book of Revelation as the number of the beast?

Gunner asked participants at the meeting if they needed further proof we are living in the last days prior to Jesus return. Good question what do you think?

PRELUDE TO THE MARK OF THE BEAST

THEY WILL BE WATCHING YOU

Google’s Smart City in Toronto by Alex Koyfman Nov 08, 2020
On May 7, 2020, Google announced that its subsidiary, Sidewalk Labs, would no longer be pursuing its smart city in Quayside outside of Toronto at least for the present. It had been intended as a 12-acre pilot project. The plan was to test, optimize, expand to neighboring communities, and, ultimately, transform Toronto into the benchmark for smart city design into the second half of the 21st century. Featuring driverless car fleets and highly optimized city planning to minimize travel needs for its inhabitants, the Toronto smart city concept would be able to deliver highly competitive residential pricing (over 40% of the planned units were below average market price) but do so with an astonishing 89% carbon footprint reduction.

quayside
Proposed Smart City in Toronto Canada

One of the brilliant, though somewhat surprising, solutions: high-rise residential buildings built on computer-designed wooden frames. More than just a technological marvel, Google and the Canadian government planned to make Quayside a social experiment as well. The below-market pricing for properties in prime locations was touted by Sidewalk Labs on its own website as a means to create a more socioeconomically and demographically “inclusive” community. The reality is Google and the other tech giants involved in smart city design — Tesla, Cisco, Siemens, Microsoft, and more than a hundred others — have a more practical reason to make sure that the world population centers go through the same modernizations envisioned for Canada’s biggest city. .It is not out of the goodness of their hearts.
For smart cities to be truly smart, for them to adapt and respond to everything that happens on the surface to ensure efficient operation at all times, each building, each street, and every moving part all the way down to individual inhabitants will need to be monitored at all times. You think the passive surveillance that devices like Amazon Alexa or the smartphone in your pocket (or in your hand at this very moment) are intrusive? Imagine living in a place where you’re consenting to constant tracking by every means of data collection available, from video cameras to GPS to audio, from morning till night?
Jim Balsillie, the founder of BlackBerry, referred to the project as “a colonizing experiment in surveillance capitalism.” And that’s exactly what it is, brought to you by a trillion-dollar tech giant, built upon the very principle of observing its users and serving them advertising based on those observations. If the idea takes off globally, Google and the rest of the big tech will have the most intimate, most continuous stream of information on its most active users.
Sounds a bit scary, right? Maybe even a little bit dystopian?
It’s been called both, and the concept has plenty of people on edge, but this high-tech highly ordered society is coming to a city center near you — whether you like it or not.
It’s happening all over the world, from the Far East to the Middle East to Europe and all across the Americas.

Also, it (Second Beast/False Prophet) causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.Revelation 12:16-18

If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.Revelation 14:9-10

TIMING OF THE MARK OF THE BEAST

Dalton Thomas of FAI does a good job of explaining the Mark of The Beast, its timing, and putting it, and current events in perspective. Dalton will challenge many on their view of God and how He operates in His world e.g. God allows the persecution of believers during the prophesied end times tribulation period. What Jesus had to say to the Church at Thyatira is pertinent in this regard.

Only hold fast what you have until I come. The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron... ” Revelation 2:25-26

It will be a time of great patience and endurance for believers. We overcome the Beast by following in the footsteps of our crucified Saviour, even to martyrdom.

STOCK MARKET MADNESS

Chart of the Large-cap US Technology Companies. Why is it up 36% in the last two months?

qqq

Christian DeHaemer is the founder of Bull and Bust Report and an editor at Energy and Capital. Christian says he has no idea. As he explains, rational thoughts no longer apply. There was a time when creating money out of thin air was bad, much less creating $6 trillion or 25% of GDP.  

There was a time when 30 million unemployed was bad. One might think a new cold war with your largest trading partner, China, might be bad for stocks. Not to mention, a hundred thousand new dead bodies packing the morgues. But no, it appears that these things are good for stocks. Our thinking has been all wrong. It seems we need more broken stuff and more money printing. Forgive all the student debt. Bailout the universities. Give $2,000 a month to all the folks. A trillion for the airlines –– billions for Ford, Hudson, and Studebaker –– more for Carnival Cruise Lines and Blackrock. Bailout Chicago, Detroit, and West Cucamonga. Heck, all those municipal employees are good hard-working people. People like money and the Fed can just print it! Let’s give the people what they want. It will be fine… 

Christian is right rational thought no longer applies and commonsense tells you the outcome can’t be good. More government control is certain and no longer is the prophesied end times, “Mark of the Beast” fanciful.
