“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his head the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
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.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” (Revelation 13: 1-18)
Much speculation has been made through the ages about the meaning of the Mark of the Beast. Some interpretations state that this will be a tattoo, while others state that it will be the requirement of Sunday worship that fulfills this prophecy. The truth of the matter is that we may not know what the exact mark is until it is upon us but the one thing that we can all agree upon is that never before has mankind been able to fulfill this prophecy on a global scale.
The entire world is becoming interconnected and with the use of technology, we are witnessing breakthroughs that could not be fathomed decades ago. This technology is becoming more controlling and we are starting to see the unfolding of a literal interpretation of the Mark of the Beast.
What we do know is that the mark will be placed in the hand and /or in the forehead and it will be required for anyone to participate within society. Without the mark, an individual will not be able to purchase or sell anything, thus making the ability to live within our modern society nearly impossible. Those that chose to not partake within this new society will be hunted down and put to death.
Through technology we are seeing exactly what this controlled society will resemble. When the use of RFID technology was approved by the FDA in 2004, many believed that the implementation of these microchips within humans would shortly follow. One thing that we have learned is that the timeline used to lull the masses to sleep prior to implementing societal change is slower than the imaginations of prophetic watchers.
This unfolding of the mark has been slow but for anyone who watches, we can see the building blocks being put into place. When Obamacare was created, and the Real ID Act was passed, another round of prophetic watchers chimed up stating that the mark was coming. We could see that both programs required biometric identification to be implemented but to date neither has pursued this option. The backlash against Obamacare will not cause its downfall as the program is too intertwined within the healthcare structure and the Real ID Act has been met with financial issues causing its delay. Both are about to change drastically.
With the creation of the Trump Administration, these prophetic events have seemed to unfold within rapid succession. The entire world is wrapped up with the media barrage around President Trump and no one knows which way is up anymore. This use of distractions is causing our society to become so divided that we no longer understand the relevant battles ahead of us. Our society fights every cause like it’s the last cause we will be able to defend.
The war over Obamacare has caused the healthcare industry to double down on their profit producing motives. Americans have witnessed plan coverage decreases, premium increases, while deductibles are reaching astronomical levels. This combined with prescription drug prices soaring will lead to the healthcare society of those that can afford healthcare and those that cannot afford it. As this separation increases, we will witness a society that has a large portion of its population without healthcare or within the government backed healthcare system. Those without healthcare will be subject to a decrease of living standards and increase of sickness, while those under the government program will be required to sacrifice certain liberties to maintain their government backed healthcare. The rich will not be affected by this as they will have the funds to purchase their own healthcare and dictate the terms based on their status within society. This will cause more separation within our society as those with the monetary means will be presented with medical miracles, as cures and medical procedures, that were only dreamt about.
The American citizen issue within the United States is just another one of those vital separation points. Our society is so divided that we do not see what is truly going on. When the United States implements the citizen requirement, we as Americans will have to provide documentation stating our citizenship. This again will be gradual as we watch our neighbors be deported for not having the proper documents, but this initial phase will not solve the problem. There will be those that fight the system and rebel against this “papers please” society. This will cause government measures to increase ultimately leading to the implementation of the Real ID Act that is scheduled to be placed in force on October 4th, 2020. Within this legislative bill, there is a biometric requirement that is requiring all Real IDs to be accompanied with biometric information. Right now, most states have moved to facial recognition and finger printing to satisfy this requirement but as this conflict increases, what will stop the government from requiring a microchip implant as a requirement of citizenship for the United States? As President Trump has stated, if you don’t like this country, then get out!
The implementation of the citizenship and biometric requirements will not be the only pull toward the implementation of the mark as we are witnessing breakthroughs within digital data transfer and human/computer interactions.
Elon Musk just announced that his company Neuralink has created a device that will connect the human brain with a computer. This device will be a chip that is implanted within the brain and has 1000 tiny wires that go over the brain like hair would on a head. This devise would then use Bluetooth technology to connect the human brain to the internet, allowing untold advances within human brain development. The device will be installed making a 2-millimeter hole in the person’s skull that will then be covered up with the chip part of the device. This is a minor surgery and will only require local anesthetic, much like Lasik surgery. The trials for the Neuralink device will start in 2020. Combine this with the $1 Billion dollars just given to Elon’s company OpenAI (an artificial intelligence venture with hopes to create cognitive capabilities that surpass human abilities) and we can see where this is headed.
We are not talking about developments that will be presented to the world within decades but instead months. Our world leaders are creating this global structure, and all are doing their part. We have been distracted by believing that there are some good rulers and that we just need to support the correct party. If we look at the actions of all parties involved, we can see that this issue is bigger then who is president and who says they will support civil liberties. This clash within our society is going to happen regardless of who is in power. The only question at this point is when will it begin?
“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb withersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people. Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
And there followed another angel, saying Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, if any many worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark on his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth and the earth was reaped.
And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.” (Revelation 14: 1-20)
