India has been on the front lines of experimenting with mass population compliance regarding many end times prophecies, specifically a cashless society, here, and also here. Now, they have added quarantine marks to the mix. Just like the love affair that Sweden has with the microchip embedded in their right hand for convenience sake, India seems to love the ‘impossible to remove’ health warning tattoo.
How might this play out in the near future, as countries battle within right now (including in the USA) to provide a means for sustenance (financial or otherwise) during difficult times such as during disasters, pandemics, or other unforeseen crises? It’s not hard to imagine many possible scenarios.
Forbes: Coronavirus Stimulus Offered By House Financial Services Committee Creates New Digital Dollar
“…. the newest offer by House Democrats includes a very forward-looking kind of stimulus: the creation of a ‘digital dollar’ and the establishment of ‘digital dollar wallets.’ In what will send shock waves through the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry, particularly for those following central bank digital currencies around the world, this signals the U.S. is serious in establishing infrastructure for a central bank digital currency.”
With REAL ID* due to be implemented this year in the USA, although pushed out a few months, according to President Trump in a recent press conference, the end times scenario declared in Revelation 13:17 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” has been all, but set into motion.
Governments are extremely excited to see population compliance of social distancing rules, stay at home rules, shelter in place rules, and so on. Am I saying that these should NOT be implemented? No, I am not saying that, but what I am saying is that just like President Trump has stated, they have learned alot — especially about human behavior.
Perhaps a (the) comprehensive mark (total personal data – biometric, financial, criminal, etc…) will or already has been created for populations to safely and quickly know who is healthy/safe in order to quickly and easily travel to and fro, to buy and sell, to access medical care and so on. Contrast that to the few others who may or may not be safe because they do not have a mark that certifies their health/safety. The population will immediately become the eyes and ears of the authorities: who in a community wants the risk of disease exposure or criminality because ‘some jerk’ refuses to get the mark to let their fellow citizen know that they are not a health or criminal risk to society. Just like Italian hospitals, without any outrage by society has not treated their most vulnerable patients over 60 years old, society may deem these high risk social misfits not worth the price or pain to have them participate in society. Even compliant prisoners won’t want them. Nor will compliant churches.
I have often wondered how the Mark of the Beast would actually play out and now I can see clearly one possible and very plausible scenario.
Dear brothers and sisters: President Trump may certainly end this war on COVID-19 before summer, but the REAL war is upon us NOW and has just begun. Christians will have to identify their red line in the sand — possibly sooner rather than later because each stone of satanic globalism that you permit in your life will weigh you down deeper into a worldly and deceptive pit that will be much harder to escape from.
And make no mistake, this entire end times prophecy is ONLY about killing, stealing and destroying souls because we already know that The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is VICTORIOUS. BUT not every person, saved or not, will resurrect into everlasting life, but will be marked for everlasting damnation. Some people will deceive themselves and sell their souls to the system that is ready, willing, and able now to do it.
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 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:
11 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.
For those of us who are pre-tribulationalists — so am I, we see VERY dimly… and we do not know the precise timing of events, especially the rapture. We are not to suffer the Wrath of God, but that will occur after the harlot’s persecution, after the midpoint, and after the beast system.
I pray that each of you pray on this for yourselves and for each other because our very souls may be at stake. We may very well have to make the choise between Jesus or satan — in just this manner. This evil is going to come upon us so smoothly, so sweetly, so helpfully, so lovingly, all in the name of helping each other and the vulnerable, and in the name of good. How else other than that, would satan do it?
COVID-19 has given us another glimpse into a future that is not so distant.
