He (the beast) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads (Revelation 13:16).
Years ago, I worked for a major, international bank in San Francisco. I was required to sit in on meetings concerning the executives of the bank as I was their event coordinator. In those days, banks had loads of money for entertaining their employees.
In one meeting for all the vice presidents and other executives, the president of the bank informed us that they had been developing the means of implanting tiny discs in the hands of all employees and clients of the bank. The problem was the world was not ready for such means of identification. But the banks were. He felt it would take about twenty years to get the public ready. Actually, that speech was thirty years ago. Perhaps this Corona Virus is getting us ready.
The following are some notes I took from a YouTube presentation by Amir Tsarfati. I recommend you open his talk, The Sign of the Mark of the Beast, and find even more information. As he put it, the Rapture is just around the corner.
One of Amir’s panel explained it in this way. Over one billion people on the earth do not have a means of showing their identity. The United Nations, ten years ago, set about rectifying this problem. Paper or plastic means of identity papers can easily be lost or damaged beyond use. Planting something in the body is far more practical. The United Nations handed this project over to Bill Gates, and he is now in charge of ID2020. His goal is to give every person in this world an identification number or name. This will provide governments the ability to monitor the number of vaccines that have been given in the whole earth, to find out who has been corrupted by viruses, how many are sick or immobilized by whatever means, etc. There seems to be no limit to what information these little implanted discs can provide. Interactions with the Corona Virus shows the world just how important these implants will be.
For when they say “Peace and safety . . .” (Revelation 5:3).
This is why the world wants this identification. They want peace and safety. We all do; but what price must we pay?
Revelation thirteen talks about two beasts. One comes up from the sea, or in other words from nowhere. The other comes out of the earth. Apparently, this one is a religious leader, one who is already operating on the earth.
Revelation thirteen reveals what will happen. The Church will be taken out of the way. But we need to know now what will happen after we are gone so that we can warn the current unbelievers and lead them to repentance before these things come to pass.
What will happen to Christians is what is written to the church of Philadelphia.
These things says He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens. “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Indeed, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie– indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast to what you have, that no one may take your crown . . . (Revelation 3:7–11).
The church will be taken away in the Rapture, and the whole world will be tried by God. The mark, whatever that turns out to be, is for those who are left behind. Those on the earth after the Christians have been raptured, who try to make up for resisting Christ, will be martyred. Time is very, very short.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away, and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
