Commentary By: Gordon King
The world is full of skeptics and scoffers, those who belittle and mock what the bible tells us will in fact happen in the end times. When these people hear Christians talk about another form of technology that brings us closer to the “Mark of the Beast” then they say that we have been talking about these technologies for decades now, and they keep changing, they just can’t make up their minds!
I would think that an atheist would believe in change, after-all isn’t that their religion?! Change, evolution, when things move from one state of being to a higher form? Isn’t this what they believe? Of course it is, and I am in no way stating that what Christians believe is evolution, but what I am saying is that things will intensify in the end and get worse not better, and along with that will be the advancement in technologies which will usher in the “Mark of the Beast”!
“He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 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, 17 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.“
The “Mark of the Beast” technology will not just happen instantaneously, no, it takes time to develop, and that means that it starts out very basic then advances to something much more developed, something much more sinister.
We’ve seen technology advance from using cash to using credit cards which first began by imprinting the image of the card onto a piece of paper, then the purchaser signed the paper. Many of you may be too young to remember this but I do.
Then the cards advanced to being read by a machine, a card reader, then as technology advanced even further the cards were implanted with a microchip thanks to the computer age! It even goes so far as for a person to be able to purchase using their cell phones!
But then we saw an incredible advancement in technology which stunned many people, the introduction of the implantable microchip into people! It first began with our pets, then it has progressed to people.
However, with the continued advancement of technology we are now witnessing the world of biometrics, the ability to scan the human body for measurements in order to identify that person. This is where we are today, this is how far technology has advanced over a few short decades, from using a piece of plastic with a carbon paper pressed against it to the use of computers to scan the human body for virtually any piece of information on that person in existence!
Does this mean that the “Mark of the Beast” will be biometric scanning? No, not necessarily, but it is a major step in that direction! The bible tells us that only those who receive a mark on their right hand or forehead will be able to buy, sell, or trade. This mark could consist of many things, however, it will more than likely be that there will be some sort of scanning involved in reading the mark, perhaps a scanner, a sensor, or some other form of technology not even developed yet.
The point is my friends that it could happen at any time, the technology is here, it’s not just science fiction anymore, and the things we see are just that, what we see, but what is already developed that we don’t even know about?! It’s all about control, control of our lives, control of who buys, sells, or trades, control of who lives and who dies, control of who we worship, either God Almighty or the Beast!
Unbelievers scoff and mock us for being aware of the growing trend in technology and for comparing it to the Mark of the Beast. They think “oh there they go again”! But this is to be expected from the world, from those unable to see the truth, for those who are lost and blind, for they cannot see the things of God nor can they see or discern the evil that surrounds them, to them it is good, to them the things of God are evil!
This rapid growth in technology is a sign of the times my friends, it is a sign that we are closer than ever to the Mark of the Beast, that we are just that much closer to the beginning of the Tribulation period, and that we are even at the door of Christ’s return for the church!
Have you noticed the sudden push for control around the world? Doesn’t it seem very odd to you that the world is now pushing for it to unite as one, to form a One World Government? Isn’t that sort of strange? Strange how the leaders of the world are uniting to create a utopia on earth, to unite everyone under the guise of “Climate Change”, to bring us all together to overcome the ills of the world, for world peace, for opening all borders to migrants, to bring “Social Justice” throughout the world? Don’t you find that strange and fascinating at the same time?
The closer we get to the Tribulation period the more of this we will see happening, it’s all about control my friends, it’s about conditioning, it’s about brain-washing, it’s about desensitization of the masses! The more people they can get to believe their lies the easier it will be for them to control the masses!
These advancements in technology are a part of that control! It’s not by chance that we see technology advancing at such a rapid rate these days, it was foretold to happen in the end times by the prophet Daniel.
“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.“
Knowledge shall increase, that also means knowledge in technology! It’s no surprise that knowledge and technology will increase in the end times, it’s part of a grand plan, and it’s Satan’s use and abuse of power during the Tribulation period that will use this technology for his purpose and plan, it’s part of his control over the masses, and those that don’t cooperate will be hunted down like dogs! (No disrespect to dogs, I love dogs!)
It’s coming my friends and it’s coming soon, much, much sooner than most even realize! Be alert, stay awake, be able to discern the times, keep watch and be ready at all times, for the good Lord could come to take us home at any time!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
