Why the World Economic Forum (WEF) Great Financial Reset will happen. The financial world is divorced from reality largely due to the exorbitant money-printing activities of the U.S. Central Bank and the European Central Bank.
In the Fall of 2008 – October 3rd the chart spikes higher – the day the Federal Government bailed out the banks. But that’s not all they did. Over the next 12 years, the Fed printed so many dollars, the money supply doubled by 2020. In other words, the government hasn’t tapped the brakes on the printing press in any meaningful way since 2008. That’s why, today, it’s becoming harder and harder for Americans to make ends meet. There’s simply no way to get ahead of this by ‘earning’ money in a job…
If rates went back up to 5%… 6%… or the historic average of 8%? The truth is… if the Fed stops printing and normalizes interest rates, it will be like pulling the pin from a grenade strapped to their own chest.
Thousands of Americans will soon become impoverished… while others become much, much wealthier – practically overnight. Normality is gone, I recently saw this story about Nyla Hayes, a 12-year-old girl who made $1.6 million selling NFT art. (A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique digital identifier that cannot be copied, substituted, or subdivided, that is recorded in a blockchain, and that is used to certify authenticity and ownership). At the same time, in cities across America, people in the middle class are struggling to keep a roof over their heads.
This is all leading up to prophesied “end times” mark of the Beast where people will not be able to buy or sell unless they have the Antichrist’s mark (microchip) inserted in their hand or forehead.
“Also, it (The 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.” Revelation 13:16-17

When the Covid crisis began, supply chain problems popped up around the globe, leading to outbreaks of fear-based irrational behaviour. The supply chain issues have intensified since the war in Ukraine. When you walk into a supermarket, you notice your favorite cereal is missing. You also start to notice that the milk or other item you bought in 2021 is now costing you almost a dollar more. Many of us notice 30% or more increases in our favorite food items, well above the published inflation rate.
While the supply chain issues are multi-faceted, there are some specific reasons for the problems at hand. Ukraine and Russia are both major exporters of wheat, corn, and sunflower products, but that is just the tip of the harvest sickle. Back in mid-May, economist James Rickards posted an article where he laid out the reasons why we could see more food supply issues in the near future. He wrote, “In the Northern Hemisphere, the planting season for 2022 is well underway. Crops were planted in March and April. Based on that, you can already form estimates of output for next September and October during the harvest season. Plantings have been far below normal in 2022, either due to lack of fertilizer or much higher costs for fertilizer where farmers simply chose to plant less. This predictable shortage is added to the fact that Russian output is sanctioned, and Ukrainian output is non-existent because it’s at war.”
Rickards explains that Russia and Ukraine account for 29% of the global wheat exports and 19% of corn. But he stresses that this doesn’t mean they grow 29% of the wheat in the world–they grow 29% of the exports. There are some countries, such as Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Kenya, Sudan, Somalia, and other African and Middle Eastern nations, that receive a large percentage of their grain supply from Ukraine, Russia, or both. Rickards says the situation could become dire because many of the Ukrainian exports have shut down. To make matters worse, the planting season is almost over. Rickards concludes, “And you’re not going to get any grain in October if you didn’t plant it in April or May.” Projecting ahead to October–December of 2022, this means that the countries that rely the most on importing grain will not be able to get the amount they need.
According to Rickards, “The combined population of countries that get between 70%-100% of their imports from Russia or Ukraine is 700 million people. That’s 10% of the population… you’re looking at a humanitarian crisis of unprecedented proportions, probably the worst since the Black Death of the 14th century.” The fertilizer issue is perhaps the biggest nail in the coffin when it comes to the price of future supplies of food. With some farmers paying two to three times last year’s price, it’s inevitable that the consumer will absorb much of this cost. Farmers in North Carolina (USA) say they are feeling the impact of inflation and that increased input costs are not sustainable. One farmer said that fertilizer cost is “up three to four times what it was a year ago.” The farmer also added that “a 275-gallon tote of generic Roundup, which is a weed killer, a year ago was $1400; now it’s over $10,000…everything has risen out of sight.”
Add in higher prices at the pump and you get a recipe for rampant inflation. In places like the United Kingdom, farmers can’t afford to plant crops for the next season because of skyrocketing fuel and fertilizer costs. Bank of England governor Andrew Bailey declared that food prices are rising at the fastest rate in 30 years, causing “a huge income shock.” He described food price increases as “apocalyptic.” He warns that the UK may see a double-digit inflation rate by the end of the year.
In response to the shortages, the United States wants its companies to “ramp up” their purchases of Russian fertilizer, especially as inflation continues to increase. According to a Bloomberg report, “The challenge the US faces is that it must balance putting more pressure on Moscow, while also limiting repercussions for the global economy and the world’s food supply, which relies on a wide range of products from Russia.” At this point, however, over 25 million tons of grain, sunflower oil, and other goods are stuck in Ukraine.
While the grain supply is one concern, another issue is the outbreak of diseases among animal populations. In the United States, a bacterial outbreak occurred in two hatcheries in California, which could lead to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of fish. Additionally, the American poultry industry is getting slammed by what’s being dubbed the bird flu. An egg factory in Iowa slaughtered over 5 million chickens because of the virus in March 2022. Earlier that month 50,000 turkeys were euthanized at a different facility. Other states such as Nebraska, Maryland, and South Dakota have experienced outbreaks as well. Adding fuel to the fire, there’s also been a mysterious outbreak of fires in major food processing facilities across the country. One such facility, known as Azure Standard, was destroyed overnight, affecting liquid products such as honey, oil, and vinegar. A week before this, a fire erupted at Taylor Farms, where the main processing facility was destroyed. Known as a “major player” in the food supply chain for both Canada and the U.S., this loss did not go unnoticed.
Another fire occurred in March at the Maricopa Food Pantry in Arizona, resulting in the loss of 50,000 pounds of food. If that weren’t enough, in Minnesota, thousands of chickens died in a devastating blaze. Additional fires have flared up in Texas, Indiana, New Hampshire, Oregon and more. As these incidents and shortages play out, one can’t help but wonder what the globalists are saying, or more appropriately, what’s their role in all of this? It’s no surprise that one world organization like the United Nations is talking about food shortages. David Beasley, the current head of the UN’s world food program, is predicting a “perfect storm” of global agricultural collapse. The biggest problem this year is food prices, but he warns that next year, it will morph into a food availability problem as supplies run dry. In 2023 there will be a food shortage problem.”
In China, the power crisis in the world’s second-biggest economy came at a time when supply chains were already strained by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, China’s strict lockdowns, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It threatens supplies of everything from metals such as aluminum to automotive parts, as well as food commodities.
Ye Tan, an economist and founder of the consulting group Ye Tan Finance, told DW that the current crisis has also hit the agriculture sector hard. She said the provinces affected were the “food basket” of China — accounting for over 20% of the national agricultural output.
Poor autumn harvests in China will have a huge impact on the global market for agricultural commodities, causing already high prices to surge further, she said. The investment bank Goldman Sachs issued a similar warning, saying rice harvests would be at the greatest risk should the severe weather continue. China’s Agriculture Ministry also said over the weekend that high temperatures and unusually low rains since July have posed “a severe challenge” to fall grain production, Bloomberg reported.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) talked about food shortages at their annual meeting in Davos which was held May 22-26, 2022. Ahead of the meeting, World Economic Forum Founder Klaus Schwab said, “The return of war, epidemics, and the climate crisis, all those disruptive forces have derailed the global recovery. Those issues must be confronted in Davos, and the global food crisis in particular needs our immediate attention.” An article that is part of the Davos agenda lays out the food crisis initiatives. It begins by saying that the food system has been knocked off its axis and “stabilizing the global food system requires collaboration and partnerships among key players in agriculture. Climate resilience must be built into agriculture, including carbon-smart solutions and biological alternatives to artificial fertilizers.”
In this case, is it a stretch to ponder the idea that the globalists have their climate-friendly solution for world hunger already in hand? After all, they claim to be sustainable food supply experts who must act swiftly to save the world. At the 2022 meeting, they parroted all the answers and so did their stakeholders and partners. Speaking of the WEF and its supporters, the Rockefeller Foundation had a lot to say about the global food crisis in their guide titled Reset the Table: Transforming the U.S. Food System.
The objective is clearly stated on page 3: “One of the consistent needs we’ve heard expressed by those seeking to transform the food system is a SHARED NARRATIVE to motivate the needed changes in the system. We articulated a narrative and a message framework focused on the long-term transformation needed in the food system.” Further investigation of this guide reveals some common themes which are: racial justice, equity, fairness, sustainability, and shared prosperity. Additionally, while the consumption of healthier food is suggested, emphasis is placed on the use of government programs and subsidies, which are outlined in the guide.
The guide suggests immediate actions that need to be taken to produce “equitable prosperity throughout the supply chain” such as “Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) must set and enforce mandatory guidelines to keep workers and the food supply safe,” as well as “provide credit, loan servicing and debt relief for farmers and ranchers.” This whole narrative the globalists are creating is likely part of a greater plan–one which will have many strings attached, such as global ID’s and carbon footprint trackers. As J. Michael Evans of the Alibaba group declared at the World Economic Forum’s 2022 annual meeting: “We are developing through technology the ability for consumers to measure their own carbon footprint. What does that mean? That is where they are traveling, how they are traveling, WHAT THEY ARE EATING, what they are consuming on the platform.”
Other hints of this same agenda come from the World Bank Group. They, along with the United Nations, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Secure Identity Alliance, Mastercard, the World Food Program and others have big plans for their universal ID program that is built upon sustainable goals. The World Banks states, “The alliance will therefore also work together to help countries build stronger food systems and gradually transition to a sustainable agricultural production base.” Hmm, here are a few questions for the Rockefeller Foundation, Alibaba, and the World Bank.
Will this universal ID be mandatory in order to receive the benefits of these food systems? Will our trackable carbon footprint affect what and how much we can eat? If we defy the approved narrative, will we be locked out of the program? How will food wealth be shared from one nation to another in order to provide “equity”?
“Also, it (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 13:16-18
The truth is that food can be used as a weapon. So, what do we do about it? Of course, we must take this issue to our Great Provider, Jesus Christ, who is very aware of the true narrative surrounding this issue. No matter what happens, we must remember that God is more than able to provide for all our needs. Like the story of Elijah and the ravens, God can use the most unique ways to sustain us. The ravens brought Elijah bread and meat twice a day. In our times of need, God will not fail us.
Prayer Point: Lord Jesus, please intervene for the nations of the world who may be on the brink of a food crisis. Like Joseph, who supplied grain during a famine, please provide security and sustenance to everyone in need. Above all, keep our eyes fixed on you.
Nomi Prins spent time at Chase Manhattan Bank, Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, and Goldman Sachs, before hanging it up and becoming an investigative journalist that sheds light on Wall Street’s more nefarious practices and the US economy at large.
A free market cannot exist, so long as a central entity is setting interest rates and without a free market, some (chosen) parties will always prosper more than others. So, if you’ve ever felt like you have been held back, running in place, working long hours only to just barely get by, now you know why. The Federal Reserve is the reason 64% of Americans are now living paycheck to paycheck.
Hardly any mainstream publications stray far from the official narrative nowadays, but surprisingly Business Insider recently asked a powerful question regarding The Fed: Is America free if a private bank owns and controls our economy?
On paper, this is what central banking is supposed to do: “Trickle down wealth” is the term it is given, but Nomi believes this to be the biggest lie in financial history and I would tend to agree with her in this instance. Instead, this is what The Fed actually does: As one of the only entities in the world that can “print” or fabricate trillions of dollars and funnel it to the rich, it is doing exactly this.
This is the permanent distortion -the separation of the rich and elite versus everyone else. The bad news is that it could get worse. As we are on the verge of a financial shock that could soon replace all the physical cash in the world, with a digital counterpart. That’s right, Central Banking Digital Currencies (CBDCs) are on the way, with some 90% of central banks in the process of planning the digitalization of their currencies as we speak.
Nomi believes one single stock Block Inc. (NYSE: SQ) holds the power to create extreme wealth for early investors. One that the rich and elite are piling into, right now.
For example, the world’s biggest asset manager Blackrock has just acquired 24 million shares and Billionaire Jack Dorsey who founded Twitter is in for 48 million shares.
This stock is one of the few in its market to actually pull in profits, quarter by quarter, to the tune of nearly $1.3 billion in annual
It was also recently touted on CNBC as the decentralized “Bank of The Future.”
Naomi could be right with the World Economic Forum and the UN pushing for The Great Financial Reset.
I believe what we see unfolding here is leading up to the “end times” control the Antichrist has when he introduces the “mark of the Beast/666“. No one will be able to buy or sell without this microchip inserted into the hand or forehead.
We are quickly moving towards the prophesied last seven years before Jesus Christ returns to this earth first to rescue His sons and daughters before pouring out His wrath upon an unrepentant world. There are some 2000 Biblical prophecies concerning Jesus second coming so we are not to be taken by surprise. In fact, when Jesus answers the disciple’s question “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Matthew 24:3 He provides great detail of the events that will precede His return and in addition, he says “See, I have told you beforehand.” Matthew 24:25
As Emma Duncan records in The Times and reported in The Weekend Australian, July 2nd, 2022.
Edward Chancellor has a gift for timing. Devil Take the Hindmost, his book on financial speculation, was published shortly before the stock market crash of 2000. His new book, The Price of Time, The Real Story of Interest, comes out just as tightening monetary policy threatens to tip the world into recession. He could have improved on the title, however:
Doomed! We’re All Doomed! would have better represented the book’s message.
Chancellor argues that, whenever money is too easy, financial markets become unstable. He takes the story to the present day, when interest rates have sunk lower than at any time in the five millennia since they were first recorded – including the extraordinary appearance of negative rates in Europe and Japan – and highlights how this has contributed to profound economic insecurity and financial fragility.
Chancellor reveals how extremely low-interest rates not only create asset price inflation but are also largely responsible for weak economic growth, rising inequality, zombie companies, elevated debt levels, and the pensions crises that have afflicted the West in recent years – conditions under which economies cannot possibly thrive. At the same time, easy money in China has inflated an epic real estate bubble, accompanied by the greatest credit and investment boom in history. As the global financial system edges closer to yet another crisis.
As I have posted previously The World Economic Forum and the United Nations have realised that the time is right for The Great Financial Reset. Read what they say on the WEF website.
As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models, and the management of a global commons. Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the Forum’s communities, the Great Reset initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being.
We are living in the time Biblical prophecy reveals is the time leading up to when the demonically inspired world leader (Antichrist) appears on the scene for his allotted time. We should not be surprised at what is unfolding in the world today. God has told us in advance so that we know He is in control of history and even allows the suffering and yes, the evil that happens for now within the context of His overall purpose.
“There shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all the kingdoms, and it shall devour the whole earth, and trample it down, and break it to pieces.” Daniel 7:23
“And the beast (Antichrist) was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven. Also, it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation, and all who dwell on the earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.” Revelation 13:5-8
“For through Him (Jesus), we have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In Him, you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:18-22
(LifeSiteNews)—When the de-banking of the Canadian truck drivers began, citizens of many nations observed with horror as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau presided over the freezing, even seizing, of private bank accounts. Ostensibly private companies even joined in, with the reigning silicon oligarchs joining the conspiracy to de-platform, de-bank, de-monetize, and de-moralize the so-called “terrorists” whose honking for human rights caused January 6th-style PTSD amongst Trudeau loyalists.
What we’re witnessing is the normalization of financial attacks on ordinary citizens, and it seems like it’s happening more and more.
In China, for example, a social credit score determines one’s ability to fly, travel, or even stream the internet. In the ever-increasingly digital financial world, isn’t the true goal of social credit programs to exert total control over the individual? And what better way to do that than by pursuing the digitalization of ALL transactions? Cashlessness is already the norm. As central banks around the world mull the issue, the idea that government will soon issue a cryptocurrency should be viewed with the highest degree of skepticism we can muster. Many have worried that vaccine passports would usher in social credit systems, but perhaps the cabal doesn’t even need them as a pretext.
Is what we are seeing leading to the Biblical prophesied: “Mark of the Beast”? In Sweden, thousands are getting chips implanted in their hands paid for by their companies. Of course, the company can monitor all activities of their employees. It is only a matter of time and governments will want to do the same.
“Also, it (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 (Antichrist) or the number of its name.” Revelation 13:16-17
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.
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.
“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).
Use the link below to watch Nathan Jones complete presentation. I have taken excerpts for this post.
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
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:
Whole Foods Palm Scanner
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
What happens when humans believe that the world began with a big bang and evolved over billions of years from single celled amoeba to the humans walking the planet today?
For me, It seems absurd that anyone can believe that something as complex, ordered and beautiful as the Cosmos came into being without any meaningful explanation and known mechanism to make it happen. Natural selection and mutations cannot do it and yet this is what is taught in our universities and schools. Moreover, our Creator has gone to extraordinary lengths to reveal the truth about Himself, ourselves and the Cosmos, as revealed by His actions in history, His prophets, His nation (Israel), His Word (Bible) and above all else through His Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
The following is what we will see unfold as we move from truth to chaos.
From the conviction that God is Transcendent—above all and to Whom all must give an account, including governments to the belief that there is nothing Transcendent but ourselves and ultimately our rulers
From the freedom not to believe to enforced state or cultural religion
From churches to re-education centres
From schools pursuing knowledge to schools indoctrinating Satanically inspired nonsense
From the Bible as God’s revelation to us and the source of our formative worldview to the displacement of the Bible from public life
From constitutionalism to tyrannical edict and the emergence of The Antichrist
From healthy individuality to collectivism
From a free market economy to a state-controlled economy and finally the Mark of the Beast
From democracy to oligarchy through the elite establishments of Information, Entertainment, Academia, Politics, Corporations
From mature independence to socialist dependency
From a healthy respect for just law to a belief we are above God’s law.
From unity to fragmentation
From freedom of religion to bondage to the secular humanist religion of the state and then the false prophet
From Biblical family to state-determined family
This is the world Jesus describes prior to His second coming to earth to complete His covenantal promise to Abraham Isaac and Jacob that their Messiah (Jesus) will rule the nations from a restructured and renamed Jerusalem.
