Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Jan 14 - Jan 20, 2018

In surfing the internet for this weeks collections of prophecy related news articles and links, we came across the following three articles which are all very interesting reads.  The first talks about the coming cashless society and the new crytocurrencies, (Bitcoin, etc), that will replace cash transactions and move the world towards the Mark of the Beast system which will control a persons ability to buy and sell during the time of the Antichrist.

The Mark of the Beast - Buying and Selling during the time of the Antichrist, (Rev. 13:7)

Preparing The Way For The Mark Of The Beast? Bitcoin & Bible Prophecy
Cryptocurrencies require all transaction records exist in the public domain. While names and other identifiable information won’t necessarily be part of the public record, governments have the resources to unmask those identities. This will especially be true of the Antichrist’s global government, which will have power over all the people on the face of the earth (Revelation 13:7). Hacking cryptocurrencies will be easy for such a government. With cryptocurrencies and ecommerce, mark of the beast technology is already here. In order to control who can buy and who can sell, the Antichrist will need a system capable of tracking every transaction on earth. Cryptocurrencies and public blockchain records provide such a system.

The second article builds up the future system of control that will enable the future Antichrist to have power, control and authority over all peoples across the globe.  In recent months we have seen countless articles which suggest that mankind will become part of a technological collective society complete with an Artificial Intelligent "God" who will be at the head of this collective, (and of course empowered by Satan, the False Prophet and the Antichrist).

Authority over all the peoples of the world, (Rev 13:7)

Technocrats will thus be able to build a global society and control its every facet, but in order to achieve these lofty goals, they need to re-program humans
Of course, for an engineered world to work, certain decisions would have to be made about the role of the individual. Every individual. You couldn’t have an air-tight plan if every human were free to pursue his own objectives. Too many variables. Too much confusion. Too much conflict. Well, that problem could be solved. The individual’s actions would be tailored to fit the coordinated operations of the planned society. The individual would be “one of the components of the locomotive.” His life would be connected to other lives to produce an exemplary shape. Yes, this could imply a few problems, but those problems could be worked out. They would have to be worked out, because the overriding goal was the forming of a world organization.

The final article takes a look at the growing super power known as China and how this once very insular nation has now become a major player on the wold scene.  The expansion of power and influence will eventually lead China to march towards the Holy Land, (Kings of the East), at the conclusion of the Tribulation.

Kings of the East, (Rev 16:12)

China's Role in the Great Tribulation
As America and the big European powers reduce their defence spending, China looks likely to maintain the past decade's increases of about 12% a year. The country is on course to become the world's largest military spender in just 20 years or so. Its army is already estimated to contain about 2.5 million soldiers,making it the largest standing army! China also has the world's second largest navy. China employs sophisticated precision weapons, high-tech information and communications technology. While global arms spending rose 4 percent in 2008, China's grew by 10 percent to an estimated $84.9 billion.

And as always there are a great many other events occurring in the world which seem to suggest a convergence of the signs of the end.  This convergence informs us that the return of Jesus Christ for his bride, (the Church), is at hand, and that the final seven years of time and trouble never before seen on earth, (the Tribulation), is about to begin.

The video below has some very interesting information with regards to dates, numbers and periods of time which may suggest we are very close to this end.  We will leave it to each viewer to judge the information contained in the video and to come to your own conclusions.  In the meantime, keep looking upwards.  Maranatha.
