BEWARE CASHLESS SOCIETY: NEW WORLD ORDER APPROACHING
Evidence that we are hurtling towards the kingdom of the Antichrist and the New World Order is the fast approaching cashless society which is being relentlessly pursued by world bankers. Sweden is a case in point which has only 3% cash purchases while in the US it is 7% and in the EU it is 9% at the present time. The Danske Bank in Stockholm will be entirely cash free from October 2012. This is very important news because Sweden is an innovator in the world of microchip technology, internet banking and electronic payments. Will other major banks in the world follow suit and make cash transactions ever more difficult for consumers? With incentives like digital loyalty cards, promotional offers, receipts on phones and the convenience attached to cashless payments, cashless transactions will look extremely attractive. Cash payments on the other hand will be seen as antiquated, inconvenient and undesirable, but is this an own goal for humanity?
In the UK it seems inevitable that cheques will be phased out as well as cash. Banks and financial institutions are planning to abolish cheques in 2016 and are seeking a ‘viable alternative’ due to expense, declining use and fraud. The abolition of cheque guarantee systems is now complete in the EU and the validity of cheques was reduced from six months to three months in the UK from the 1st of April 2012. In fact 2016 seems a relevant year for the cashless society to become established: By 2016, UK mobile retail sales will hit £2.5 billion as around 14 million adults will regularly shop via their mobiles, the Money: The Digital Tipping Point report says….. Carl Scheible, managing director of PayPal UK said: “2016 will mark the real start of money’s digital switchover in the UK.” (confused.com)
The war against cash is being fought on many different fronts globally. Many governments are making it difficult to pay cash for large purchases and almost criminalising cash purchasers. In the US leaflets have been distributed to merchants advising that cash should be considered as suspicious. Large cash transactions have been banned in Italy and Spain. The MintChip is being promoted as ‘better than cash’ by The Royal Canadian Mint. Google Wallet, Paypal Instore and Square allow customers to pay with a simple click, but a concerning offshoot are real fears by consumer organisations that this easy method of payment will increase personal debt on an unprecedented level.
We are given various reasons why cash is considered not so ‘savvy’ and these are valid in many ways. A huge social consequence of cash is crime - cash is anonymous and facilitates tax evasion, drug dealing and prostitution. Cash has inherent security problems due to personal theft and robbery on a larger scale. Going cashless will reduce the cost of banking operations since cash is expensive to produce. Cash is inconvenient, unhygienic and it is not eco-friendly. Having said all that, there is a big BUT. A cashless society would give governments a lot more control, with the ability to track all transactions so that individual privacy will be compromised. The world will not become more secure as the cashless proponents claim. Apart from physical theft of the digital devices, crime will simply shift from physical theft to cybercrime. The problem of insecure digital transactions will eventually lead to the introduction of the RFID microchip implant with multiple biometric credentials. The future RFID chip will contain everything about you.
Biometric identifiers are very accurate, unique to individuals and effective for detecting fraud. However this is only part of the picture since it is possible for biometric identifiers to detect the onset of such diseases as diabetes and Parkinson’s and they can even detect certain lifestyle traits without any other source of medical or other information. It is feared that these identifiers would inevitably be used for purposes other than crime prevention.
The US and other countries plan to share biometric information internationally due dangerous people like terrorists, but public disclosure of biometric capabilities by governments is unlikely due to security issues. Privacy, civil liberties and discrimination are the other side of this coin which raise concerns that individuals will have no control over information being held about themselves. We are assured that the use of biometrics in the public sector will be legitimate and overseen by democratic institutions. This would be very nice of course if it were not for the fact that governments and financial institutions are Luciferian organisations and do not have the best interests of humanity on their agenda. What if things were to change and another Hitler came to power? What would happen if you were considered undesirable to a particular regime due to illness, race, beliefs, age etc? The cashless society is not imminent, but for the first time in history it is a probability within years rather than decades. When the Antichrist does arrive on the world scene he will be the one to enforce a 100% cashless society, but the ground will have been very well prepared for him to do so. The cashless society will be inevitably tied up with the ‘mark of the beast’. The Antichrist will be a man of ‘peace’ initially and it will all seem very plausible until he takes off his mask!
This is not just an interesting debate; it is a life and death issue for the not too distant future. Those who do not cooperate with the system and refuse to take the mark of the beast will be seen as ‘resistors’ and will be excluded from the financial system altogether. The Bible makes it clear that it is preferable to die rather than to worship the beast and take the mark and this is precisely what will happen:
Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666. (Revelation 13/16-18)
And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulphur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.” (Revelation 14/9-11)
Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years. (Revelation 20/4-6)
