The Mark of the Beast, Christians and End Time Finances.
No matter who you meet, if you say, “666,” all of the sudden, they know what you are talking about. There is coming a time when every person will have to receive a mark or a number, without which you will not be able to fly in a commercial aircraft, enter a federal building, drive a car, open a bank account, receive health care, or hold a job. The technology is already in place. It is happening right now.
Individual Economic Sanctions
Economic, political, and religious conformity can now be enforced with technology which is already available. Just as the UN pressures “rogue states” into conforming through economic sanctions, a one-world political system, a one-world economy, and a one-world religion will also be enforced through individual economic sanctions.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17)
The Cashless Society is almost here. “If the cashless society is ushered in,” writes Patrick Henningsen of Global Research, “they have near complete control over the lives of individual people.”
With the arrival of the Cashless Society, Satan will counterfeit true worship when the False Prophet, under penalty of death, requires everyone to worship the “Beast,” the Antichrist. Mankind will be required to surrender all, including all financial transactions. In a cashless society, no one will be in jail for bank robbery because there will be nothing to steal. Also, a cashless society is very attractive to the IRS, because, if the government has records of everything you do, it will be able to withdraw taxes from your income before you have a chance to spend it.
Will You Take the Mark?
Revelation chapter 14 tells us that whoever receives the mark of the Beast, “shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God.” The mark is a permanent designation of ownership applied to your forehead or right hand. Anyone who takes the mark will be eternally lost. It is the mark of eternal destruction. In the digital age to come, the enforcement of financial obligations will not be difficult because failure to pay up could be disastrous. Your account could be cut off, making you a non-person for not paying your bills, for refusing to join the global financial system.
What Will the “Mark of the Beast” Be Like?
You cannot get the Mark of the Beast accidentally. You will have to make a conscious choice to receive it. You will have to mean it. The Future Attribute Screening Technology Mobile Module enables the Department of Homeland Security to collect video images, audio recordings and psycho physiological measurements to get into the minds of potential terrorists, with the ability to detect the “intent to do harm.”
But why wouldn’t you consciously take the mark? After all, you will be pledging your allegiance, dedicating your whole life to the most attractive, charismatic dictator the world has ever known. The False Prophet will make worship of the beast almost irresistible. You will be promised protection, eternal life, peace and prosperity, if you worship the being who claims to be God, and receive his special mark. People will line up to get it. They will be allowed to buy food, water, medicine and clothes. They will feel honored to get it. Most other people will be getting the mark. Will you want to stand out as one of the few holdouts? Taking the mark will seem like the logical, intelligent, patriotic thing to do.
Precursors to the Mark
The REAL ID Act requires that Americans produce compliant driver’s licenses, as approved federal identification, upon demand. It coerces states into building a national multi-billion dollar system for identifying tracking, and controlling law-abiding citizens. Many states have refused to comply because it is an expensive, unfunded federal mandate and a massive invasion of privacy. Although it has repeatedly postponed implementation penalties, the Department of Homeland Security has announced a gradual rollout for enforcing the REAL ID law, beginning in April, 2014.
The Affordable Care Act, often referred to as “Obamacare,” implements a national ID system disguised within a “data hub,” and a “unique patient identifier” to verify eligibility for health services. Also making its way through Congress, as part of an immigration reform bill, is “E-Verify,” a nationally mandated universal biometric ID, which will be required for federal approval for employment. Concurrently under consideration are similar initiatives to implement enhanced driver’s licenses, enhanced social security cards, and biometric and DNA identification databases.
Mark of the Beast Needed to Buy or Sell
According to Revelation 13:15-18, every person will be forced to have a number, without which they will be unable to buy or sell. If you want to have a job, you must have a valid, government recognized ID, and be in the global database. No job? No buying or selling. When this system is activated worldwide, the mechanism will be in place for implementation of the Mark of the Beast that was prophesied 2,000 years ago.
An Absolute Certainty
It is very important that all of us understand that the Mark of the Beast is not a possibility, it is an absolute certainty. You and I are going to face it. Make sure your name is in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
How to Prepare Your End-Time Finances
These hints can help you keep your finances healthy during these uncertain times.
There has been an increase in end-time discussions as the time of the Lord draws nearer. Many are asking what they can do to prepare financially.
Proper preparation on any issue starts with having a firm belief in God and His Son, Jesus Christ, who promise to never leave or forsake us. This assurance allows believers to walk in the knowledge of all of God’s promises and know all things work together for the good of those who love Him.
My research indicates there are events unfolding that point to a complete meltdown or collapse of all man-made financial constructs existing today.
There is no doubt in my mind that the world will experience a repeat of the banking crisis of 2008, and probably worse. Chaos and confusion may easily ensue if we are not prepared. Markets, currencies and stocks will all be shaken to the core as the world struggles to separate debt and value.
No greater evidence exists to support my position than the events in Greece on Monday, June 29 2015. Greeks had to stand in line in an attempt to get their money out of closed banks. Rumors that Greece could leave the Euro and attempt to print its way out of excessive debt has led to increased talk of default and hyperinflation of the drachma, the nation’s currency.
That is why the International Monetary Fund and the Bank of International Settlements, along with all the central banks of the major countries, are working feverishly on issues like total loss absorbency capacity and systemically important financial institutions.
In layman’s terms, these issues determine which central and private banks will survive a crash and which won’t. Unfortunately, there is a lot of fear mongering from sellers of survival food, gas masks and gold. There are even some folks building underground structures to survive a perceived Armageddon.
I don’t see this crisis unfolding quite that way, and I take a lot of criticism for not playing into the doom and gloom of the day. I do, however, see a day coming when we will be forced to bail out our banks. Our money will be held as an asset of the bank, and we will be handed a bank stock or I.O.U. This is very similar to what occurred in Greece and Cyprus.
Keep in mind that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation signed an agreement with the Bank of England outlining such a plan. Recent actions of the G-20 also state your bank account is no longer considered money. Therefore, regulations requiring FDIC insurance no longer apply.
So how should one prepare their finances? A powerful principle found most successful is diversification: “Give a portion to seven, or even eight; for you do not know what calamity may happen on the earth” (Eccl. 11:2).
Have some money in stocks and land as well as gold and silver coins for liquidity and to maintain buying power.
Perhaps even invest in some cash and bonds—but do not put all your eggs in one basket.
In every past crisis, a currency of acceptability emerged during the chaos. In Russia, the ruble died and the U.S. dollar filled the void until stability returned. The same occurred in South American countries like Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela when the currency collapsed. The world didn’t stop; it just changed the currency employed for the exchange of goods and services.
It’s sad that I can’t promise the dollar will prevail this time. With many countries now taking each other’s currencies, I suspect soon the U.S. dollar will lose its reserve currency status.
The added pressure of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries now accepting direct payments in other currencies seals its fate.
This is why having gold and silver in your portfolio is critical. It will be exchangeable in the currency of acceptability. Gold and silver are universally recognized as money, from the towers of Wall Street to the markets of small villages. Gold is money. It is the ultimate currency and, therefore, essential in troubled times.
I have no doubt tough times lay ahead for the world and especially for our nation. We must learn to live within our means and get back to principles that historically have proved solid.
How to Manage Christian Finances in the End-times
To be honest with you, over the years this writer has heard a lot of preaching on stewardship, way too much perhaps. Any preaching mentioning “stewardship” has had the emphasis on the giving aspect of handling God’s money – even to the point that it was supposed to hurt. “Give brothers and sisters, give until it hurts!” But as Christians, (as well as the rest of the world), plunge deeper into the latter days, the careful examination of the Scriptures reveals another dimension of stewardship rather than simply and mindlessly emptying our wallets and bank accounts into the collection plate. Just mention the word and the immediate image response is bequeathing an inheritance to a church, ministry or charity. That’s the sum of it.
Actually, in some respects, it has nothing to do with money at all yet millions of believers are bombarded daily from pulpits, from their television screens, and satellite communication systems by the idea that stewardship is all about giving, yes, even “extravagant giving”.
If one thing is for certain, in our nation’s classrooms, elementary through high school, as well as in the nation’s churches, “stewardship or financial management” was never taught as a subject, at least not in this writer’s experience. So, if you permit me, let me share some things that the Lord has taught me over the years about this truly unexplored subject. In so doing, I hope we will see a portion of the root problem of the financial chaos fast approaching our nation and what the Lord would have us do in order to have a “divine course correction 101”.
Stewardship is defined as the entrusting of one’s property and/or investments to the hands of someone else well trusted, in order to protect, manage, multiply and increase for the owner.
Now, here is the number one error committed by most Christians -they treat their money as if it were theirs. Honest. They never consider that it is God’s finances with which He has given to them, the measure or amount not really being that important to Him. He simply wants to see what you will do with what you have been given.
So many times I hear Christians say, “I’m a steward of God’s money”, yet upon careful analysis or observation, this is not really the case. Did God tell them to make the investment – buy that second car, take that unneeded vacation, buy that house that is now out of both control and budget with expenses, taxes, and insurance? “Well, I didn’t know the economy was going to do this…”
Of course you didn’t know, but God did. Is your house now under the water when you could have sold at a sizable profit just 3 years ago? But since you considered it your house and not His, you didn’t bother praying about it much, did you? You might have thought you would hold out for an even larger profit. Unless you were really being led by His Spirit, it seems that greed (mammon) got into the picture somehow.
All right, perhaps you did pray and He said “stay, until I say otherwise or until I let you know when to leave – or not leave. The point is, since you considered it not to be your property, you asked the original owner as to what He wanted to do with it. Do you see where we are going with this? You are not your own, dear Christian friend. Never.
This, Beloved is where so many Christians have missed it financially. They have acted, invested, and managed their money the same as the world system has done. They have never truly realized that their economic stability comes from God’s economy (His way of doing things and obedience to it), and not Mammon (the world’s system and strongholds of wealth). Christians have been behaving and operating with an unfocused, double mind, not knowing and/or choosing to stay focused on the way of the Kingdom. Sadly, most Christians today are reaping the whirlwind.
In serving God, the mature Christian most decide whom shall he serve. To which system will he adhere? Is He going to do things God’s way or mammon’s. Is he his own master or simply an obedient servant of God. Which is it?
“No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the others. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Luke 16:13
Once having made that determination, the Christian can proceed with confidence in knowing that as a wise steward of God, Heaven’s angelic hosts are at his disposal to carry out God’s Word in behalf of that faithful servant, who is basically, just simply carrying out Divine Orders from the One who owns it all.
