We always knew that it was coming. All over the world, governments and big corporations are pushing us toward a fundamentally different way of doing things.
They insist that this new way will be more safe, more secure and more efficient. They are telling us that we should embrace new technology and be open to new ways of buying and selling.
And they assure us that new methods of identification will not be intrusive and will simply allow them to crack down on criminals such as identity thieves, tax evaders and terrorists.
But could it be possible that there is more going on here than we are being told? Could it be possible that we should actually be highly alarmed by this huge push for “Mark of the Beast” technology?
As technology becomes even more important to our lives, there will be even more of a push to move all transactions online. That means phasing out the current system of physical cash and coins, and going to a system that will eventually be entirely cashless.
In fact, in some areas of the world this is already happening to a very large degree…
In Sweden, 95 percent of all retail transactions are already cashless, and ATM machines are being removed by the hundreds. In Denmark, government officials actually have a stated goal of “eradicating cash” by the year 2030. And in Norway, the biggest bank in the country has publicly called for the complete elimination of all cash.
In Spain, all cash transactions of more than 2,500 euros have been banned, and in France and Italy all cash transactions of more than 1,000 euros have been banned.
We don’t have those kinds of caps on cash transactions in the United States just yet, but given enough time they would come eventually.
Right now, there are more than 400 billion cashless transactions conducted around the globe annually, and that number may hit 500 billion for 2016.
Of course in a fully cashless society the government would be able to serve as the gatekeeper for who is permitted to use the cashless system and who is not.
It would be all too easy for a tyrannical government to mandate that everyone receive a “government identification chip” before being allowed to buy or sell or do anything else online.
We are living at a time when the Book of Revelation is coming to life right in front of our eyes.
As our world starts going crazy, Bible prophecy is going to be the number one thing that people are interested in as far as the Christian faith is concerned.
The stage is being set for the ‘Mark of the Beast’, and the time is coming when we are all going to be faced with some very tough choices.
