The book of Revelation reveals that at some point in time the antichrist will be able to:
- Track and control all financial transactions, and
- That NO MAN will be able to buy or sell anything unless he has the mark of the beast.
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
Not until recent times did people understand how this prophecy could possibly come to pass. There was simply no way that anyone could control the buying and selling activities on such a large scale.
That was yesterday… today, global governments and corporations have nearly completed their control grid making it possible for them to track and control all your financial transactions. Modern technology has created a brave new electronic world without borders. With modern computer technology, satellites, GPS, RFID, biometric and smart card technology, people can now be tracked within 3 feet anywhere in the world.
It’s seems only a matter of time before they slam the door shut and require you to have some form of ID when buying and selling.
No one knows how the mark will be imprinted on the hand or the forehead and I am not saying everything described here will necessarily become the mark of the beast.
What I am saying and warning you about is that whatever the mark of the beast turns out to be and however it is implemented, you are being prepared today to accept it without question as the control grid is being constructed all around us to make it possible.
You Are Being Programmed to Accept the Global ID Control Grid
Your movements and access to resources are now being controlled, and in many cases citizens are being deprived of their Constitutional rights in the name of safety and security.
Today, you cannot board an airplane or enter a government facility without being subjected to an invasive search that violates not only the Constitution but violates your personal privacy.
We are told all of this is necessary to increase your safety in exchange for liberty. Of course, that is totally bogus as the real continuity of agenda is rooted in the antichrist system of command and control.
The TSA (Transportation Security Administration) warns that any “would-be commercial airline passenger” who enters an airport checkpoint and refuses to be subjected to “the method of inspection designated by the TSA will not be allowed to fly and also will not be permitted to simply leave the airport.” Americans may be arrested and fined $11,000 if they refuse to cooperate with the agency’s invasive and humiliating techniques.
If Americans continue to allow their government to violate their Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizures and be humiliated with naked body scans and enhanced pat downs in order to travel, what else will governments be permitted to do?
Coronavirus Covid-19 Pandemic
It appears as if governments around the world may now be exploiting a manufactured coronavirus scare to bring in a brave new world. While not downplaying the seriousness of a pandemic, so far the Covid-19 pandemic is dramatically smaller than previous pandemics yet resulting in draconian measures never seen before.
Countries are closing their borders, restricting travel, locking down cities, introducing social distancing rules, and taking actions that are inflicting financial crisis.
This whole coronavirus scare may be, in effect, a beta-test of governments’ ability to control its economies and citizens and to gauge the adaptive capacities (how compliant citizens are to government mandates).
Government/Private partnerships are being formed bringing free capitalist nations and businesses into the Socialist sphere. The U.S. Congress is pushing through the largest government bailout in history to multinational corporations and expanding socialist programs. Astronomically much larger than the 2008 government TARP bailout program.
Contact tracing has been a pillar of communicable disease control in public health for decades. It is the process of identification of persons who may have come into contact with an infected person (“contacts”) and subsequent collection of further information about these contacts. It has been used to reduce infections in the population.
White House Coronavirus Task Force member, Dr. Deborah Birx, made a comment in a press conference praising the CDC for their ability to do contact tracing. What a great opportunity for the surveillance state to expand their reach into our lives and technologies to track and identify citizens. When you consider the new world order effort of tracking its citizens, contact tracing could be one of the Hegelian “solutions” that will be with us long after coronavirus subsides.
China and South Korea has used measures to try to identify every step that a person took prior to testing positive for the virus — using GPS phone tracking data, credit card records, and interviews with each patient to determine their movements. In Israel, the intelligence agencies not only look back at the movements of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, but also monitor the phone activities of those suspected to be infected.
While I have not found evidence the Federal government is using any surveillance tools to track the movements of those infected with coronavirus, it has been disclosed that State governments are using GPS tracking tools. The system Kansas uses, called Unacast, uses anonymized GPS data from cell phones to show how much people are moving, Kansas Department of Health and Environment Secretary Lee Norman said. It can measure how people have decreased their level of travel and offers states a grade based on their social distancing practices.
It’s not unreasonable to think that such efforts may be on the way at the federal level — particularly given that testing has been insufficient and officials may seek new ways to help people track potential exposure to the virus.
President Trump and his Coronavirus Task Force has repeatedly said nobody could have ever thought something like this could happen. Oh really?
Experts from the U.S. participated in the Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development sponsored by The Rockefeller Foundation and Global Business Network ten years ago. That exercise was scenario planning demonstrating possible events that might happen and how we might respond to those crisis. The so-called “Lock Step” scenario was one of the four scenarios they explored and was incredibly close to the Covid-19 pandemic now.
“In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit. Unlike 2009’s H1N1, this new influenza strain — originating from wild geese — was extremely virulent and deadly. Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world, infecting nearly 20 percent of the global population and killing 8 million in just seven months, the majority of them healthy young adults. The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers.” [Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development]
Again in 2019 the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, with the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, hosted Event 201, a multimedia global pandemic exercise in New York City. This pandemic exercise underscored the immediate need for global public-private cooperation to mitigate severe economic and societal impact of pandemics.
Event 201 Pandemic Exercise: Highlights Reel
Whether Mr. Trump was read in to this information or not, the U.S. Government was aware of it and should have done better preparation than it did. As Mr. Trump admitted, he inherited a badly outdated public health organization not adequately prepared for a public health emergency on this scale.
I don’t think anybody knows how the coronavirus will ultimately turn out, but I suspect citizens everywhere will be forced to accept a “new normal” that may likely be like nothing we’ve experienced before. And, it won’t just be whether we continue to shake hands or not.
The Antichrist System Is Closer Than You May Think
The technological challenges of an antichrist marking and tracking system are being overcome today at an ever increasing pace and should be ominous signs for anyone, especially Bible believing Christians.
Social Security numbers have been identified in the past as “the mark of the beast”. But, social security numbers were only PART of what will become the mark of the beast. The Social Security Administration began numbering and cataloging its citizens in November 1935 as part of the FDR New Deal. People were told then the new social security cards bearing their number would not be used for identification purposes; in fact, that was printed right on the cards. Today, that disclaimer has been removed from the cards and your SSN identification number is now required for many financial transactions.
Barcode labels have been identified in the past as “the mark of the beast”. Like social security numbers, barcodes were a pivotal PART of what will become the mark of the beast. Barcodes represent the numbering and cataloging of products available in the economy. Technological advances began replacing barcode labels on consumer goods with RFID (radio frequency identification) chips that contain unique identification codes. Today, RFID is becoming a part of passports and payment cards.
These technologies are precursors to later technologies even more powerful in the hands of the antichrist. Advances in digital technology have made it possible now to engineer an identification system capable of monitoring virtually every human transaction and to track all your movements. Smart meters not only permit corporate monopolies to collect vast amounts of data on nearly everyone in the United States, the technology can be used to “shut down” your service remotely.
Given rapidly evolving modern technology, if the Lord tarries a bit longer there may be some new development, some new technology that would fit the bill even more closely.
There are some good candidates and numerous ways this can already be accomplished today.
These newer technologies are being sold to the public as being more secure and less prone to fraud. While that may be true, it is also true it provides a more robust and secure method of identifying people.
Providing Biometric data including a fingerprint scans, iris scans, thermograms, DNA samples, etc. is being required by government and private venues more and more. Governments and large corporations are now introducing systems to identify individuals using biometric data as opposed to traditional card forms of identification. To obtain a driver’s license in many places, you must submit to a thumb scan. If you refuse, you will not be issued a license, your right to travel will be severely limited, and you will lack a common form of personal identification. In California, a thumb scan is required to obtain a real estate/mortgage broker’s license or purchase ammunition.
In 2020 the world was introduced to a novel coronavirus called Covid-19. As a result, travel was restricted worldwide and travelers are being screened, those with an inflated temperature are quarantined. Many countries have closed their borders and requiring incoming travelers to present a health certificate for entry. Travelers must prove they are not infected with the Covid-19 virus and eventually when a vaccine is developed may have to prove they have been vaccinated for the disease. Most are still relying on paper documentation for this but in China, for example, they are using QR codes to track individuals coming into that country.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said in response to a question on how businesses will be able to operate while maintaining social distancing, “Eventually we will have some digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it.” This is Bill Gates’ perfect opportunity to advance his projects because as the coronavirus continues to spread and more people continue to die from the pandemic, the public at large is becoming more open to problem-solving technologies that will contain the spread of the virus.
Since air travel is a major way of spreading a virus, I wonder if the current naked body scanners might be upgraded some day to also scan for virus symptoms. It’s been reported Homeland Security is considering replacing the naked body xray scanners with body scanners that scan and store biometric data, including body temperature.
THE DHS GLOBAL BIOMETRIC PLAN
A facial recognition system is a technology capable of identifying or verifying a person from a digital image by analyzing patterns based on the person’s facial textures and shape. Thermogram’s are a type of imagery that translates a person’s heat-emitting facial features into an infrared image. Registering the various heat peaks and valleys in surface, the thermogram looks like a colorful, face-shaped topographic map. Like a fingerprint, each person’s face creates a unique thermal pattern. Captured by a special infrared camera, the image can be digitized and stored in a computer. Later, the person is rephotographed and the new thermal image is electronically compared with the old. [“Smile, You’re on Thermogram,” ID Systems, August 1995.]
Iriscan technology identifies people by analyzing the unique pattern in the iris of the human eye. The iris is the colored ring of tissue that surrounds the pupil of the eye and is a complex combination of patterns that can be recorded and stored by the computer. The iris-recognition product captures a photographic image of the iris, analyzes its unique visual structure, and then compares it to previously stored Iriscodes for authentication of identity. [“Security for Your Eyes Only,” Byte, May 1998.] Imagine this technology being in place providing access control to facilities and point-of-sale control. It’s already in place at some bank ATMs.
In a fabricated war on terror, the American and British governments have essentially eliminated personal privacy and is now collecting data and tracking its citizens in nearly everything they do. Telephone conversations are being recorded, emails are being read, tweets and instant messages on social networking sites are being monitored, every purchase you make is being documented, your DNA is being collected, and your movements are being tracked with license plate readers and the GPS in your car and cell phone while we’re being recorded by monitoring cameras all around us.
Governments around the world have been collecting, analyzing and storing the blood and genetic material of all newborn babies without bothering to inform their parents of this fact for 40 years. Newborn babies in the United States are routinely screened for a panel of genetic diseases by taking blood samples without parental consent. States mandate that newborns DNA samples are stored in state labs for anywhere from three months to indefinitely, depending on the state.
The Katie Sepich Enhanced DNA Collection Act of 2012 allows for compiling national DNA databases taken from people arrested for but not convicted of crimes.
We have already demonstrated our willingness to accept devices to electronically tag or track individuals. It has become quite commonplace, for example, for law enforcement agencies to require individuals to wear electronic bracelets in order to monitor their activities. The traveling public have accepted the notion of abandoning their Constitutional rights at the airport and be subjected to intrusive bodily searches in exchange for perceived safety. Amazingly, in a poll conducted by CBS News in Nov. 2010, 81 percent of Americans support the TSA’s use of naked body scanners at airports. You now cannot open a bank account or conduct many other commercial transactions without providing government approved identity documents.
The technology now exists and has been successfully tested to allow an identification device of some type, including a tiny microchip, to be implanted under the skin of the hand.
Palm Beach-based Applied Digital Solutions unveiled the VeriChip immediately after the 9/11 tragedy and was approved by the FDA for storing medical information. The Digital Angel™ technology incorporates a microchip, similar to pet identification chips, that can be worn close to the body and includes biosensors that can measure the biological parameters of the body and send the information with RFID (radio frequency identification) technology to a ground station or computer. It will also have an antenna that can receive signals from GPS satellites, thus pinpointing the location of the wearer.
All it takes is a syringe-injected microchip implant for patrons of the Baja Beach Club in Barcelona, Spain to breeze past a “reader” that recognizes their identity, credit balance and even automatically opens doors to exclusive areas of the club for them. “By simply passing by our reader, the Baja Beach Club will know who you are and what your credit balance is,” Conrad K. Chase explains. (WorldNetDaily, April 14, 2004)
In 2018, A Danish firm called BiChip released a new generation of microchip implant that is intended to be readable from distance and connected to Internet. The company released an update for its microchip implant to associate it with the Ripple cryptocurrency to allow payments to be made using the implanted microchip.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates wants to launch human-implantable capsules that have ‘digital certificates’ which can show who has been tested for the coronavirus and who has been vaccinated against it. The ‘digital certificates’ Gates was referring to are human-implantable ‘QUANTUM-DOT TATTOOS’ that researchers at MIT and Rice University are working on as a way to hold vaccination records. The quantum-dot tattoos involve applying dissolvable sugar-based microneedles that contain a vaccine and fluorescent copper-based ‘quantum dots’ embedded inside biocompatible, micron-scale capsules. After the microneedes dissolve under the skin, they leave the encapsulated quantum dots whose patterns can be read to identify the vaccine that was administered.
The quantum-dot tattoos will likely be complimented with Bill Gates’ other undertaking called ID2020, which is an ambitious project by Microsoft to solve the problem of over 1 billion people who live without an officially recognized identity. ID2020 is solving this through digital identity. Currently, the most feasible way of implementing digital identity is either through smartphones or RFID microchip implants. The ID2020 initiative has formed an alliance between Microsoft and four other companies, namely; Accenture, IDEO, Gavi, and the Rockefeller Foundation. The project is supported by the United Nations and has been incorporated into the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals initiative.
Interval Research (Palo Alto) has patented a “programmable tattoo.” The biologically inert subcutaneous implant is constructed of a flexible material so as to conform to the skin’s surface. The small liquid-crystal display can be inserted just beneath the skin (e.g., in place of a wrist watch). Because human skin is partially transparent, the display is clearly visible. The implant also includes a receiver for receiving programming information from a user, and a display for displaying the programming information through the skin. The display is connected to a control chip and power comes from a small battery. Both of these are implanted beneath the skin. Implanting is an outpatient operation and the battery can be recharged inductively, by holding the wrist near a charger.
Some of it’s potential uses includes:
- monitor patients by doctors,
- commodities supply chain management,
- locating people such as small children and the elderly,
- tracking parolees, people under house arrest, and individuals in witness protection programs,
- trace valuable items such as art pieces or computer equipment.
- Of particular interest is its application as an important security measure. It can carry personal identification information and transmit this information via wireless communication with personal computers.
While we’re being sold on the benefits of an implanted chip, I believe it’s important to know the dark history of the chip and the satanic roots of this technology.
Verichip and the Fourth Reich
Programmable subcutaneous visible implants could contain biosensors to monitor temperature and blood pressure, and display these readings — clearly a medical advancement. But the devices could have a more serious purpose. They could be used for electronic tagging similar to what’s going on with the Chinese social credit scoring system. Whenever anyone wanted to buy or sell something, he could be required to wave his hand over a scanning device that would read the chip, identify the buyer or seller, and validate or invalidate the sale.
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark of his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. [Revelation 13:16-17]
Is This all Conspiracy Theory?
Senator Frank Church, chairman of the United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, issued a warning to the American people in 1975 of the potential of the technocratic elite to monitor the public and possibly use that information against us in violation of the Constitution of the U.S.
It would appear we have crossed over the abyss Sen.Church referred to. All of his predictions made 44 years ago have now come to reality.
Indeed, Antichrist’s world government is not only believable but may have already arrived.
The 5G Revolution
I believe the next evolutionary step for the mark of the beast is the technology that ties all of the above together and allowing them to communicate in real time is 5G cellular service followed by 6G.
Being sold to the global public as a super fast internet is the technology to connect together the disparate technologies of a global control grid. It’s called 5G – the latest wireless system that telecommunications companies are implementing to service wireless communication. We’re told it’s designed to allow faster downloads of more data. It uses the 28, 37 and 39 GHz bands, also known as millimetre wave (mmW) spectrum. 5G, which comes from the term 5th generation, is designed to work in conjunction with what former CIA head David Petraeus called the Internet of Things or IoT.
It will allow for the real time tracking and control of just about everything, from your travel habits, eating habits, sleeping habits, whether you use a specific medical device or baby monitor, how you spend your free time, and even the kind of clothing you wear. Much of the connective technology is already in the smart meters outside the home, the smart phones we carry and even the Alexa smart speakers that listen to our conversations. If you have a Comcast Xfinity wi-fi modem, you already have a mini 5G transmitter in that device, a hidden 5G hotspot network. Even if you choose to disable the Xfinity Hotspot… it’s actually still broadcasting under the SSID named “?” (question-mark)…. so it’s not actually OFF.
5G is appearing everywhere and will accelerate exponentially in the coming months and years.
The Truth About 5G
The Trump administration has made 5G a priority.
“The race to 5G is on and America must win,” Trump said. 5G is the next generation of wireless network that will enable faster data speeds. Unlike 4G LTE, which mainly targeted mobile phones, tablets and computers, 5G is 100 times more powerful and is expected to enable more reliable connections on self-driving vehicles that will need a constant data connection, and smart cities that use IoT (internet of things) devices, such as connected street lamps, traffic lights and more. “To accelerate and incentivize these investments, my administration is freeing up as much wireless spectrum as needed,” Trump said. ”[We’re] removing regularity barriers to the buildout of networks.The FCC is taking very bold action, bolder than they’ve ever taken before, to make wireless spectrum available.”
IoT Analytics estimated an increase in the number of IoT devices, enabled by 5G technology, from 7 billion in 2018 to 21.5 billion by 2025. According to the Communications Technology Industry Association, in the United States alone the technologies enabled by 5G would spawn upwards of three million new jobs and $500 billion in economic growth.
There’s a lot of money in a wireless economy and the data-harvesting that comes with it. So, Big Industry has bought the science, bought lawmakers, ruled the proliferation of microwaves as “safe,” and infiltrated the FCC along with most international health agencies. Numerous doctors and scientists have been warning of the new 5G EMF technology planned to roll out. They say EMF technology is a serious environmental hazard, harmful to life. This new 5G EMF technology has not been properly tested for safety and has been blindly approved without health evaluation.
Aside from the privacy issues and control issues are the health issues associated with 5G wireless technology. That is a topic that will be covered in another article on this website. Here on this page, I’m considering how the technology will enable the antichrist control grid as described in Revelation 13:16-17.
Social Credit Score
This tracking and surveillance grid is not restricted only to the U.S. It has become global.
“Simultaneous introduction of biometric, smart ID cards around the world is not just a coincidence, it is not merely due to nations copying effective schemes in other nations, and is not just a phenomenon related to the sudden maturity of technology. Implementation of these ID card schemes was pushed. It is being driven in a coordinated programme, via international organisations and conferences, led by the US and the European Union (EU).” [Nathan Allonby, ID Cards – intergovernmental cooperation in worldwide implementation]
Built with the assistance of U.S. based Google, the Chinese government is rolling out a Social Credit System with a single system-wide social credit score for each citizen and business. Once implemented the system will manage the rewards, or punishments, of citizens on the basis of their economic and personal behavior. Some types of punishments include: flight ban, exclusion from private schools, slow internet connection, exclusion from high prestige work, exclusion from hotels, and registration on a public blacklist.
China’s “Social Credit System” Has Caused More Than Just Public Shaming (HBO)
Mark of the Beast?
I do not believe that the people developing this technology are necessarily conspirators purposely developing a system they know the Antichrist will use for his own wicked purposes.
These people are compartmentalized where those at different levels of development do not know what others at other levels are doing and visa versa. These are men and women who are developing what, to the natural eye, are brilliant ideas for the world’s future.
Nor, do I believe that today, as I am writing this piece, that the technologies I write about are NOW the mark of the Beast. Rather, I see them as being potential technologies that need be in place in order for the Antichrist to accomplish his nefarious scheme. Each technology builds upon previous technologies and are each designed to incrementally condition us to accept even more invasive technologies.
So, what’s so bad about these technologies. They improve our lives … right?
I believe the most important point is that each of the technologies developed is moving the world closer to the ultimate tool to be used by the Antichrist, and perhaps even more important is that as each technology is embraced by our society, people of all stripes are being conditioned to ACCEPT the mark of the beast.
The Coming New World Order
One of the goals of the Jeremiah Project is to warn people of the New World Order and a One World Government, which is being set up today.
Agenda 21 is an action plan of the United Nations related to sustainable development and was an outcome of the United Nations Conference of Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. It is a comprehensive blueprint of action to be taken globally, nationally, and locally by organizations of the UN, governments, and major groups in every area in which humans directly affect the environment.
Agenda 21 For Dummies
While most of the control is now being exerted by Homeland Security over access to public facilities and transportation, the day is not far off when the globalists will also control world food and water supplies, and other necessary things necessary to live.
The U.N. sponsored Codex Alimentarius is quickly becoming the controlling entity of everything that provides nutrition to humans. People will ultimately be required to either accept the mark of the beast or starve to death.
One of the methods to be used to enslave every man, woman and child on the face of the earth will be a new money system that will be introduced taking us into a “The Cashless Society”. Sadly, many people today find it difficult to believe that those days will ever come or if it does how they can be hurt by it.
The financial interests of the world are now engineering the financial storm sweeping the globe today to consolidate and control your every activity. Once you have been fully integrated into the cashless society, they can charge you $5, $10 every time you use your credit or debit card, they can charge you when you transfer your paycheck into your account, they can regulate and track everything you do, they can end underground economies that are essential during tyrannical upheaval.
When the mark of the beast comes full force, it is going to be hard for people to trade any other way but by using the mark.
I hear many Christians say, “I won’t take that mark”. Well, Satan has been a little smarter than most Christians. He is slowly implementing the mark. Like a fisherman, Satan is getting people to swallow the whole bait (mark) just a little at a time (Social Security number, 5G wireless, Federal Reserve Notes, National I.D. card) until one day we will wake up in his boat.
Once the technologies are fully in place, the transition from the beneficial uses of technology to that of the Beast spoken of in Revelation 13 will happen quickly. Prophecy teachers have been speaking these words for many, many years. It is only just now, during your lifetime, that the prophecies are literally being fulfilled. You would be enlightened if you were to turn to the Word of God particularly the prophecies in the books of Daniel and Revelation and understand that these are no idle words of a mere man but these are words of the living God.
There is no doubt, when the day comes the Antichrist is revealed wielding power on the earth demanding his mark, it will be difficult for everyone… especially the unprepared Christian. Imagine the conflict a parent will feel when the mark of the beast is required to buy food for their children, formula for their baby, and anything else needed to survive.
I believe this time may be somewhat similar to the testing God made of Abraham when God commanded him to sacrifice his son Isaac (Genesis 22). Because Abraham passed the test and was willing to obey God, even not withholding his son (v.16). Because of that trust and faith in God, Isaac was spared and Abraham was blessed by God. That is the kind of faith we will need in the end days when presented with the Antichrist’s mark of the beast.
Lacking any real knowledge of the Bible and having only a superficial trust in God, many will fall away at that time and accept the Antichrist system. Exchanging their liberty in Christ for the safety and security of the new world order, they will lose both when they willingly take the mark of the beast.
New American Theology of Civil Submission
Tragically, many of those God ordained to be leaders among men and shepherds protecting their flock, will become pawns in the diabolical hands of the Antichrist. Already a nationwide FEMA program is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers for the New World Order who teach their congregations to “obey the government” in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, forced relocation, and acceptance of the mark of the beast.
Perhaps, contrary to some of these preachers teachings, we should resist the devil and the Antichrist system of control and domination while we still have some choice. If we accept the incremental steps in setting up this system, we will be more likely to accept the ultimate regime.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. [James 4:7-8]
We are now living in the “last days!”
Taken by themselves, each of these technological signs do not prove we are now living in the last days. However, when taken as a whole and combined with the big picture of what the Bible and the various categories of signs that the Bible predicted would come together just before the return of Christ, it’s easy to conclude that we are now living in the end times and should be prepared.
Jesus Himself gave us the best insight shortly before his execution on the cross.
“Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. [Matthew 24:4-14]
General ‘signs’ Jesus said would be visible prior to His return.
- Deliberate deception by men of God’s Word
- Rise of false Christs
- Increase in wars and rumors of wars
- Famines, Pestilence & Earthquakes
- Discrimination and hatred against Christians
- Backsliding, turning from the faith, betrayal
- Hatred of Christian against Christian
- False Prophets and “New Age” leaders
- Lawlessness abounding
- Love and concern for others grows cold
- Gospel preached worldwide
|A day of reckoning will come.
There will be an end.
