THINGS TO COME: THE MARK OF THE BEAST PART 111

By Pete Garcia
Imagine your next trip to the supermarket.  You spend a couple of hours loading your cart up with goodies, you go to check out and your card is declined.  How do you feel?  Embarrassed? Angry?  Especially if you KNEW you had money in the bank.
So next, you excuse yourself real quick and run over to an ATM to withdraw some cash, but the same thing happens, no money and no service.  Now what?  Maybe you’ll call the bank and give them a good ‘what for,’ or, you’ll just have to go back in there and tell the teller that something came up and you will not be needing the groceries. Either way, you walk out empty-handed.
Now imagine, that you can’t do ANYTHING from filling up your car with gas to paying your bills because your currency is no longer valid. 
Oh, and by the way, you’re no longer receiving a paycheck from your employer.
What if some new law came out that said that US Dollars were no longer valid anywhere. Rather, you have to have this thing put on your hand or forehead in order to buy, sell, pay bills, buy groceries, hold a job, pay your mortgage or anything else that requires a financial transaction for goods or services rendered.  
That’s what it will be like when this kicks off inside the 70th Week of Daniel (aka…Tribulation).
Men, women, and families, all once of good financial standings (with excellent credit scores to boot) suddenly find themselves the very people they once looked down upon. But there is a fix; all you have to do is put this new mark put on your forehead or hand (painless) and all of your former luxuries will be restored. In fact, what if they threw in some bonus things like credit and identity protection, automatic 5G Wi-Fi connection anywhere on the planet, genetic modification (adding another 20-30 years onto your life), and constant health monitoring. Oh, and by the way, once you do this, you’ll be making the WORST decision in the history of mankind. At best, you’ll be trading in seven years of comfort, for eternity in torment and darkness.  At worst, you probably won’t even live out the full seven years and still have eternity to face.
Sounds like a bargain huh?
Well, there is coming a day and age when this will become a reality.  Oh, it may not happen tomorrow, but changes are coming. Changes are happening even now. Kinda like how the music industry quit making cassette tapes and moved over to Compact Discs. These changes will be forced upon you.
At some point, all the cassette tapes are relegated to the dust bin and no one is making them anymore.  You have NO choice but to buy a new radio that plays CDs.  Or like when television left analog and went strictly digital.  Did you have any say in it?  No.
When the time comes for this ‘new and improved’ way of living/ shopping/ security/freedom comes about, either you get on board or you get left behind.  And by behind, I mean, utterly; left to either starve or be killed by a tyrannical government.
With the body of Christ removed at the Rapture, what semblance of organised “Christianity” that remains, will be both Christ-less and incapable of offering a path to salvation that holds to its ecumenical swaying’s.  Previously, I offered up Roman Catholicism, simply because they’re the most global “Christian” organisation in the world.  They’ve not shown any qualms or regret in the past over killing true believers (e.g., the Crusades, Inquisitions, etc.) or from embracing non-Christian beliefs in order to stay relevant (Paganism/Islam).
CHRISLAM ANYONE?
Mormonism may play a prominent role in this time as well, since they share such a striking similarity to Islam, embracing both universal ism and to an extent, pantheism and will probably be one of the most organized and intact American religious systems left standing, post-Rapture. Either way, what is left is an empty shell of empty religions that will be used as a tool to prepare the world to worship the satanically indwelt Antichrist himself.
That leaves only the practical matter of enforcement of said worship.  The mark is not just a system of worship; it is a system of control. Satan is not God, and at best, can only try to mimic God which is what he attempts to do with the mark.  God has and does mark those that belong to Himself (Deut 6:8; Ez 9:4; 2 Cor 1:21-22Eph 1:13Rev 7:3).
Satan counters with a system that is emplaced by the Antichrist as a logical, pragmatic choice to many of the world’s problems.  The world’s economic systems are currently being dismantled through unmanageable debt and widespread corruption. By the time the Mark is introduced as an alternative, it will leave the Mark as the only practical solution.
How does the world get out of the current financial quagmire that it is in?  It is completely unrealistic to think the US could pay off 16 (now 21 Trillion dollars).  Our citizens have become dependent on many of the entitlement programs that have put a majority of the country on life-support.
If the government threatened to:
  1. a) Impose huge cuts to MEDICAID, MEDICARE, Welfare, and Social Security in order to pay down the debt, or
  2. b) Move off the dollar to a new system where no cuts were needed, I believe the US population would overwhelmingly elect the latter.
Greece, Paris, and London are just tiny microcosms of what we could expect in every major city if strict austerity measures were put in place. But it’s not only the US but the entire world that finds itself in the same debt-laden boat.  The problem with the US though, is that we are supposed to be the big pole in the tent that holds up the whole show.  If we go down, (as witnessed in the 2008 financial collapse) we’ll drag the entire world down with us.
Nations like Brazil, Russia, China, and France have only recently expressed openly, a desire to move away from the dollar into a basket of currencies.  Whether it is a digital credit, special drawing rights, or a new currency altogether such as the Phoenix, they will all fail. That is not my opinion on the matter that comes straight out of the Bible.  The world ends up in one global system, run by one man, using one currency.
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 13:16-18
The mark of the beast will obviously not be labelled as such, nor its consequences, but will be presented as the most logical, reasonable way forward in troubled times.  We know that the mark is not used prior to the Tribulation, so whatever technologies are currently out there today (and there are many now that could fit the bill) are just being staged for the right ‘crisis’ to implement when the time is right.  Assuming that the Rapture of the Church is the trigger that causes the worldwide chaos, I foresee a couple of possible avenues.
  • If the Rapture is a standalone event, aside from the immediate effects of wrecks, looting, fires, etc…, it will trigger an economic avalanche of panic in the US due to the sudden removal of millions of consumers, employers, employees, tax/mortgage/bill payers that will put an already fragile economy into panic mode. The government will bypass the constitution and move to join some form of regional, economic union.
  • If the Rapture is accompanied by some other cataclysmic event (EMP/Solar storm, nuclear or dirty bomb, mega-thrust-earthquake, Gog-Magog War), the US may cede control of the government to the EU “temporarily” until the US can get back on its feet.
For those who are not taken up in the Rapture, they can expect to be subjugated to the Wrath of the Lamb and an onslaught of satanic terror here on earth.  For those who fall in line and take the mark, they can expect the following:
  • Eternal damnation (Rev 14:11)
  • To drink from the cup of indignation (unmixed) the wine of the wrath of God (Rev 14:10)
  • Grievous Sores (Rev 16:2)
  • Torment on earth (painful darkness, heat, 100 lb. hailstones) (Rev 16:810-1121)
Is it worth it?  Is the worst seven-years of your life worth hell on earth, and even worse, an eternity in hell, if you ‘opt-out’ for a few years of momentary comfort?  Would you spend a million dollars on a car that you could only drive for a day?  Probably not, so why would you make a deal that is infinitely worse?  The technology exists today, the hour is late, and our Lord and Savior is returning just like He said He would.
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”  Revelation 22:12
The Bible is very clear on this subject of the coming 70th Week. It is a future event, and it will be the worst period in all of human history. If a skeptic (Christian or otherwise) tries to tell you – 
“The Rapture ain’t going to happen…” 
“There is no such thing as a Rapture…”
“The Rapture already happened in the first century…”
or any other lame excuse, do not listen to them. Mark them as a fool and get away quickly. The Bible is very, very, very clear about four things:
  1. Jesus died, was buried, rose again, and is coming back again at an undisclosed point in time in the future. He didn’t come in the first century because we are still here and the world is still seriously messed up. (1st 15:1-5, 51-56; Matthew 24:36; Rev. 3:3)
  2. Christ said that when (not if) He comes back, He is going to take His bride (the born again Church) back to heaven (the Rapture) with Him to be where He is (John 14:1-3)
  3. When the Rapture happens (harpazo-Greek, catch up-English, Rapture-Latin transliteration), this world will instantaneously be plunged into chaos. Every time a major global crisis happens, someone always rises up to take charge. This time will be no different, except, it will be for the last time. You don’t want to be here on the earth when that happens
  4. DO NOT TAKE THE MARK.
He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name
…Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. 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 ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17, 14:9-11

THINGS TO COME: GLOBAL GOVERNANCE VIA THE UN

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/StevieRay Hansen
UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL PREPARED TO FIGHT FREE SPEECH WORLDWIDE
In a speech to the U.N. Human Rights Council last month, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres announced that the U.N. system is going after what he calls “hate speech.”
Guterres said he is alarmed, however, “by the shrinking civic space in every region — and every corner of the internet.” He said activists and journalists are targeted by “campaigns of misinformation,” posing a danger to their lives. This and much else in the speech seems to point to his disapproval of President Donald Trump who, along with the president’s supporters, have sharply criticised what they see as the partisan nature of the mainstream media.
The Secretary-General said he is alarmed by “a groundswell of xenophobia, racism, and intolerance…and that “hate speech is a menace to democratic values, social stability, and peace.” He said hate speech “spreads like wildfire through social media, the internet, and conspiracy theories.”
World government or global government is the notion of a common political authority for all of humanity, yielding a global government and a single state that exercises authority over the entire Earth.
The United Nations Millennium Assembly in September will gather more heads of state than at any other time in history. Their purpose–gain consensus for the Charter for Global Democracy, which would in effect, transform the UN into a World Government.
As if that were not enough, the United Nations is also sponsoring the Millennium World Peace Summit. This summit will gather more than 1000 religious leaders to search for common ground and common values among their respective faiths
This will lay the groundwork for a One World Religion. The UN offers global peace and security as a result of these meetings. Is this going to be Utopia, or will the results be cataclysmic. REALLY…
“Remember, where you have a concentration of power in a few hands, all too frequently, men with the mentality of gangsters gain control. History has proven that…power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” -British historian, Sir John Dalberg-Acton, 1887
In reference to Trump and to leaders like Victor Orbán of Hungary, Guterres is concerned with a speech that “stigmatises” women, minorities, migrants, refugees, and any so-called ‘other.’” He says, “Hate is moving into the mainstream — in liberal democracies and authoritarian states alike.”
Experts are concerned that Guterres seems to agree that certain speech that he deems wrong must be stamped out and that he sees it as the role of the United Nations apparatus to silence it.
Lord Christopher Monckton, the former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, delivered a scathing refutation of the concept of human-caused global warming at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. During his presentation, Lord Monckton focused on the UN climate treaty that was being proposed for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen that December. He warned:
I read that treaty. And what it says is this: that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries…. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.
Not just any government, mind you. “They are about to impose a communist world government on the world…..
At the UN’s Rio+20 Earth Summit on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on June 2012, the world government advocates were pushing even grander schemes. Lord Monckton, who heads the policy unit of the U.K. Independence Party and is chief policy advisory to the Washington, D.C.-based Science and Public Policy Institute, told The New American’s Alex Newman, “They were still effectively talking about a mechanisation for setting up a global government so that they could shut down the West, shut down democracy, and bring freedom to an end worldwide.”
THE UN PLANS TO BE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT BY 2030
In the 1960s, an informed but naive undergraduate, I was walking across the campus of the University of Pennsylvania with the Chairman of the Chemistry Department, Prof. Charles C. Price.  He told me that he was president of the United World Federalists, and asked if I knew what that organisation was.  When I said that I did not, he replied that they believed in a one-world government that would grow out of the United Nations.  I was nonplussed as I had never heard anyone suggest that idea before.  To me, the United Nations was a benevolent organisation dedicated to pressuring the world community in the direction of peace, and to operating charitable programs to help the struggling, impoverished peoples of the world.   I imagined the UN as a kind of United Way on a worldwide scale.
In 2015, seventy years after their original rights-based document, the UN took a giant step towards the global government that was only hinted at in their first organising document.  They issued a document entitled “Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”  
This document has 91 numbered sections of the UN’s program for world government.  The UDHR is only referenced once in the entire document in Article 19.  Unlike the original “mother document” that was under 1900 words, this document is 14,883 words. The 91 items are addressing issues under the five headings of People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnership.  Additionally, the document provides 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to improve life on the planet.
What is meant by the term “sustainable?” The most often quoted definition comes from the UN World Commission on Environment and Development: “sustainable development is a development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Of course, the takeoff is the Marxist axiom that society should be organised around the idea of “from each according to his ability to each according to his needs.”  Thus, Marxism is implicit in sustainability but is nuanced by its alliance with seemingly scientific adjustments and goals related to environmentalism. Technical jargon is welded to Marxist conventionality to produce a sense of fittingness and modern progress.
The entire “Transforming Our World” document is cast in a stream of consciousness of pious platitudes for a utopian future. 
It is an outsize utopian dream. Five of the 17 items pertain to the environment.  There are goals for the cities, for women, for the poor, and even for life under the water.  Absolutely no sphere of human activity is exempt from control by the UN. The keyword, of course, is no longer “rights” except the oblique reference in Article 19.  In fact, this writer did not see the word rights even once in this document even though that word appeared in practically every sentence of the original UN document.
The one-world of the 1950s and early 1960s is now in the UN driver’s seat, and they have made their move.  The overlay of Marxist talk about “meeting needs” has moved to center stage.  The UN has assigned itself a time frame for moving forward in its plan for planetary hegemony.
The sustainability ideal is not wedded to a Christian view; instead, individual liberty is submerged in a scientifically determined collectivist mindset with final decisions in the hands of the devilish, all-knowing Big Brothers.
The relevance of the individual is downplayed. It is being put forward by a UN that is no longer pro-western, a much larger body than existed in 1945.  Will you accept it, or is it time, more than ever before, to begin rethinking our membership in that unsustainable body?
We Are In The Last Days……..
THE NEW WORLD ORDER ANTICHRIST SYSTEM
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]
I am convinced the New World Order is, in fact, the Antichrist system of command and control is set up to fulfill Bible prophecy that will eventually lead to the introduction of the Mark of the Beast.
The Bible tells us a Beast is going to rise up and will take over the whole world. Some refer to it as the spirit of Babylon that is going to be throughout the world – a great deception. The masses will believe whatever they are told by the gatekeepers. Not only will they believe what they’re told, but they will be sympathisers of what they are told. They will defend it. They will love the Beast and worship the Beast, meaning they will love their new system of government. They will love what is proposed to them. They will love their rescue… and they will love their rescuers.
