The Future is upon us
Two aspects of the Tribulation
Keep in mind that the tribulation period described in different parts of the Bible (more so in Revelations) is quite an in depth study. This blog focuses on the tribulation in regards of the Antichrist and the mark of the beast (and there is still more to explore in these two aspects as well). I tried to make this more of an informative blog and less of a devotional study to hopefully bring more to read it.
Does it not seem people have lost all forms of common sense? It even seems this world has forgotten right from wrong too. Also, it seems people do not just want freedom, but free from being hurt, wrong, or someone that disagrees with them. Crazy times are upon us now, but what does the future look like based on what we currently see?
Some would say that if we remove all the guns, the world would be a better place and violence would leave. Well, with that type of logic we need to remove all knives, trucks, hammers, and rocks too. The issue is not with the objects, but with the people who use the objects. Others say if religion and most importantly the Bible would leave, this world would be an amazing place. Well, that is the basis of this blog, so let us chat about that concept and the technology that is here to assist with that concept.
First topic of this blog, a man comes to the scene. There is plenty of chaos happening now, people are looking for some sort of savior to handle this mess. Now, I will infuse Bible verses here and there, but not in such a way as to create a devotional type blog, this one is more eye opening and connect the dots aspect. Revelation 13:5 states, “And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty two months. “ 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first (sounds like today, does it not?) and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” So a great man is coming and people on this earth will listen because they are looking for a savior and this antichrist will give them just that. Now, it says 42 months, or three and a half years, so there will be some time before the antichrist will start his reign of god like authority, but that does not mean he would not have some sort of authority for the seven years of tribulation. The last part will be much worse than the first 3.5 years. People love to have their fears removed and their self-esteem lifted, and this guy will do it. This man will solve today’s most terrifying and difficult problems with ease. He will flat out be awesome, and so amazing that people will think he is the savior of the world. Then the added bonus, he hates the Bible, Jesus, and the Gospel and speaks out against it. People will be thinking, FINALLY we can divorce ourselves from this awful Bible and truly find a humanistic approach to heaven on earth. Think about it, it will be an amazing time, humans get to see what they can do without God or the Bible. The Holy Spirit’s influence on the world will not be there anymore (as it is today) so guilt will be by the wayside. Or guilt will be redefined with a solely humanistic approach. You are your own conscience approach. Revelations 13:3 state the beast, or antichrist will be hurt, mortally wounded, but heal from the wound. This will further convince people to think he is some sort of god. From our current events, does the population not cry out for some sort of savior and that same population want something not from the Bible? Think about it.
Second, how can this all happen? Let us take the Mark of the Beast situation next. Revelations 13:16-17 states, “And he (antichrist) causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.” The second beast, or the false prophet (antichrist assistant) makes these types of demands for the antichrist. Sounds weird, but the technology is here, today. Take the Microchipping of pets. This microchip is a small electronic chip as small as a grain of rice. Then that chip is injected under the skin and when scanned has the ability to tell others who owns that pet and where that pet lives (https://www.avma.org/KB/Resources/FAQs/Pages/Microchipping-of-animals-FAQ.aspx). Could we not try this technology with humans? It gets better. Currently there are badges out there that open doors and ones that you can actually see where the person is going based on sensors in the building. This happens today! What would be the benefits you ask, let me show you.
First, it would reduce crime. If sensors detect a badge walking through a building, why not have this technology out of the building? If a murder happens near a house, you just need to see whose microchip was near the area at the time of the murder. Case closed, and this would work for robberies too? No more perfect crime, because we know where everyone is at any given time. Let us say you have satellites that detect people from outer space, then you could not even rob a place in Antarctica, the satellite is watching and specifically watching too. Who needs guns for protection, everyone is located at any given time so no one gets away with crime.
Second, it would improve work efficiency. No more hiding in the stairwell for an unauthorized break, people are tracking you all the time. Plus no more losing badges, the chip is your badge. A person gets fired, his\her chip is reconfigured to show they do not work there anymore and I bet it will be a fast reconfiguration.
Third, it would improve banking. Cards can be hacked or lost, but with the chip, there is no way to do that. I would guess online ordering would require a scan from your chip to purchase. So each PC would come with chip scanners to make sure you are the one purchasing.
Fourth, it would make carrying information about you convenient. People are frustrated when they enter the ER or hospital because the same questions are asked over and over again. Plus, if you are rushed to the hospital unconscious and alone, no one knows your health history. By having scanners for each EMS team and hospital, a simple scan of the arm or forehead will show each person’s health history and insurance. So if the patient is unconscious, scan his chip to see that person’s health history and treat that patient.
Lastly, with a chip and an amazing leader, you get a one world government. People want one world, they crave it. Can’t we all get along I hear these days. Well, that will happen. With this thought comes more of a police state and not a free world (People want safety over freedom these days anyway). Since the government can tract all and watch where all are going, why commit the crime, you will be tagged in that area. No more waiting on papers while you try to catch an oversees’ criminal or murderer, one government, one world, just go get him! Plus if you catch one, see who that person congregates with and more are arrested under conspiracy to commit a crime. Now, if you decide not to take this chip or mark, at first you cannot buy or sell and then you will be executed if you do not take this mark.
So, sounds great right? A one world government with one leader that solves problems without the Bible and even curses the Bible and God. Plus, there will be less crime and fraud with a mark or chip on each person. What is the ending? Does this last? Well, no. Revelations 19 tells of the final victory of Jesus and then read Revelations 14:9-12 to see the fate of those who take this mark or chip of the beast. Think about it…….Not asking you to convert RIGHT now, but think about it and maybe read more about this.
