How Technology Is Being Used To Bring In The Mark Of The Beast - Part IV

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to
receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man
might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or
the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding
count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his
number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:16-18

This article describes the technology that is being developed to bring in
the mark of the beast.

2. The Goal: To Eliminate Passwords Through Biometrics

An article/video titled "Testing The Debit Card With A Fingerprint
Sensor"(See note 9) states:

"New technology that could give a further layer of security when using a
bank card has been trialled. A fingerprint reader is built into the card
itself. It stores the details of your fingerprint and checks it is you
using the card each time you make a purchase. Cards using this biometric
system could be rolled out as soon as next year and may enable you to make
purchases up to the value of your credit limit."

These next two articles show just how easy it is for someone to steal your
biometrics that are stored. An article titled "Biostar Security Software
'Leaked A Million Fingerprints'"(See note 1 states:

"More than a million fingerprints and other sensitive data have been
exposed online by a biometric security firm, researchers say. Researchers
working with cyber-security firm VPNMentor say they accessed data from a
security tool called Biostar 2. It is used by thousands of companies
worldwide, including the UK's Metropolitan Police, to control access to
specific parts of secure facilities. Suprema, the firm that offers Biostar
2, said it was addressing the issue. 'If there has been any definite
threat on our products and/or services, we will take immediate actions and
make appropriate announcements to protect our customers' valuable
businesses and assets," a company spokesman told the Guardian. According
to VPNMentor, the exposed data, discovered on 5 August, was made
private on 13 August. It is not clear how long it was accessible. As well
as fingerprint records, the researchers say they found photographs of
people, facial recognition data, names, addresses, passwords, employment
history and records of when they had accessed secure areas."

How Technology Is Being Used To Bring In The Mark Of The Beast - Part III

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to
receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man
might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or
the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding
count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his
number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:16-18

This article describes the technology that is being developed to bring in
the mark of the beast.

2. The Goal: To Eliminate Passwords Through Biometrics
The next new technology being introduced to people is "Biometrics". This
technology is being used to replace your ATM password and sometimes even
both your password and your ATM card. A recent newspaper article titled
"Army's New Password: 'Biometrics'" states:

"To fight hacks, Pentagon turns to body-based ID systems that can't be
faked. A headquarters for the new "biometric" security system is
scheduled to open here next week. A center that will store the digital
images of soldiers' fingerprints, earlobes and other characteristics
in a database is expected to open by August. Biometrics involves using
computer scans to identify a person's unique characteristics, such as
eyeball patterns, fingerprints and hand shapes. The scans then are
stored digitally. A computer uses video cameras and sensors to match
those "templates" with the patterns of would-be users." (See note 7)

Another article titled "Biometrics Are Giving Access With The Blink Of An
Iris Scan" states

"Businesses are using PIN-free technology internationally and in
Texas, and plans abound to make eye scans the status quo....Customers
of Bank United in Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth can get cash just by
walking up to a machine and looking at it. No ATM card, no PIN. Just
by looking them in the eye, the machine can tell if customers are
authorized to access the money they seek........Last month, biometrics
reached street level, making its debut in cash machines in Texas,
Italy, England, Japan, Norway, Turkey, Spain, Brazil and Germany.
Biometrics will be available in more areas by the end of the year,
says NCR Corp., one of the companies that makes them. They will be
virtually everywhere by 2005, forsees the Gartner Group, a high tech
consulting company. ....... A fingerprint has 35 measurable points
that can be used for identification. The iris has 266, Shane said. The
iris is the most data-rich feature on the human body." (See note 8)

From these articles we see that your body features are becoming your ID.
Notice what the Bible says in Revelation 13:16 : "And he causeth all, both
small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their
right hand, or in their foreheads:"

How Technology Is Being Used To Bring In The Mark Of The Beast - Part II

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to
receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man
might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or
the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding
count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his
number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:16-18

This article describes the technology that is being developed to bring in
the mark of the beast.

1. From Cash To Cashless Society
An article/video titled “Inside Amazon’s Robot-Run Supermarket That Needs
Just 3 Human Workers ”(Note 4) is about a new store concept that uses a
cashless payment system. This is one step closer to the human implanted
microchip which can be used in the future.

“If you’re a robot stealing somebody’s job, it’s best to stay hidden.
That’s what Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos appears to be thinking, as his
Seattle-based web giant has contemplated a two-story, automated grocery
store in which a staff of robots on the floor upstairs grabs and bags
items for shoppers below. The ground level of the futuristic prototype — a
supermarket-sized version of its recently unveiled “Amazon Go” convenience
store, with a bigger layout that could span anywhere between 10,000 and
40,000 square feet — would be devoted to goods that shoppers typically
like to touch, sources briefed on the plans told The Post. Those could
include as many as 4,000 items, spanning fresh fruits and vegetables,
eggs, meats and cheeses, and grab-it-and-go stuff like beer and wine, the
sources said. Pharmacies might also might spring up at some of the
high-tech locations, as Amazon looks to break into the lucrative sector,
insiders said. But for many, the most striking feature of the bigger
stores is that they could operate with as few as three employees at a
time. Sources said the plans call for staff to max out at 10 workers per
location during any given shift.”

In another article titled "Amazon Opens Full-Size Grocery Store With No
Cashiers" (Note 5) says:

"Amazon on Tuesday unveiled a new supermarket prototype that relies more on
technology than human workers — a controversial, job-killing business
model that CEO Jeff Bezos had dismissed as nutty three years ago. The
10,400-square-foot “Amazon Go Grocery” store in Seattle’s Capitol Hill
neighborhood uses cameras and sensors to detect which products customers
pick off the shelves, allowing shoppers to pay for a bagful of groceries
without the help of a cashier. The new store has five times as much
shopping space as the Amazon Go stores that first opened in January 2018,
which are typically around 2,000 square feet . . . . The story, citing
sources, said the two-story concept would have robots grabbing and bagging
goods on the top floor while shoppers picked up items such as produce,
meats and booze on the ground floor. At the time, insiders said Amazon was
aiming to open stores that could operate with between three and 10
employees."

An article titled “Amazon's Just Walk Out Till-Free Tech Offered To
Rivals”(Note 6) describes how Amazon is offering its till-less technology
to competitors.

"Amazon is offering its till-less technology to other High Street shops,
just over two years after launching it via its own Go Grocery chain. Go
Grocery shoppers scan a smartphone app as they arrive, allowing them to
pay via their main Amazon accounts. It has now adapted its Just Walk Out
system for other retailers so shoppers register a payment card on entry
and are automatically billed as they leave. But, unlike at Go Grocery,
users' Amazon accounts will not be involved. And the firm has said that
information collected about consumers will only be used to support the
retailers it has partnered with. ‘We only collect the data needed to
provide shoppers with an accurate receipt,’ Amazon's website says.
‘Shoppers can think of this as similar to typical security camera
footage.’ The system involves fitting a shop with hundreds of cameras and
depth-sensors, whose data is then remotely analysed on Amazon's computer
servers. The software can distinguish whether a shopper has picked up and
kept a product for purchase or if they have only examined an item before
replacing it back on a shelf. Amazon says it can install the required
equipment in ‘as little as a few weeks.’”

How Technology Is Being Used To Bring In The Mark Of The Beast - Part I

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond,to
receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man
might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast,or
the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding
count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his
number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:16-18

This article describes the technology that is being developed to bring in
the mark of the beast.

1. From Cash To Cashless Society
In Revelation 13:16-18 it says "And he causeth all, both small and great,
rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand,or in
their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the
mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is
the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

In this passage, the Bible shows us a time when no one will be able to buy
or sell without the mark of the beast. But before we can get to this time,
there will be a system in place which I am calling the cashless society.
According to a recent newspaper article titled "Euro Stakes High In NW"
(see note 1) the euro came into existence on January 1, 1999. The article
states

"Eleven Europeans countries fixed the value of their currencies to the
euro, allowing the new unit to be used for banking and accounting
transactions. Companies and individuals can start writing checks in
euros."

The euro as it exists today is a cashless monetary system. There will be
no tangible currency associated with the euro until January 1, 2002. This
shows how easy it is to implement a monetary system without cash.

Two additional newspaper articles recently published described how the
cashless system is being introduced in America. The first article titled
"PreNet Foresees A Future Of Virtual Cash Transactions" states:

"The PreCash card works like a Western Union office on plastic,
enabling people without a bank account to transfer money....Nine out
of every 10 payments in the world are still in cash. And most of
those, according to a 1997 study by the London Business School,
involve amounts less than $10 ....PreNet's PreCash card enables
consumers to pay cash for services such as mobile phone usage
electronically. The card is targeted at customers who pay in cash for
services as they use them, rather than on credit....Today, PreNet,
Sprint PCS and RadioShack will launch the first nationwide version of
the PreCash card."(See note 2)

The second article titled "American Firms Are Trying To Make Smart Cards
More Attractive In U.S." says:

"Imagine a single card that lets you purchase and download an airline
ticket using your PC. That same piece of plastic could also pay for a
restaurant lunch, open secure doors at the office, check out books at
the library. It could even become your car keys......Such is the
promise of smart cards, wallet-sized plastic cards with embedded
microchips that U.S. credit card issuers are rolling out in a big way
in the next few months.......Thanks to the improving power and
versatility of microprocessors embedded in the cards, consumers will
not only be able to better protect themselves against online fraud as
they bank or trade stocks. They will also be able to store digital
cash, personal information, Web site passwords and addresses, and such
things as loyalty coupons from merchants or frequent flyer points. As
circuits on the cards are upgraded to hold more memory and
functionality, cardholders may eventually be able to store everything
from driver's license information to medical insurance data and
monthly rail or bus commutation tickets - all on a single card." (See
note 3)

We see from the first and second articles that the goal is to remove the
cash from our nation and also the world to a cashless system which is one
step away from the mark of the beast.

The Revived Roman Empire Part VII

"And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no
kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These
have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast."
Revelation 17:12-13

This article shows how the European Union or the Revived Roman Empire will
be the final kingdom to bring in the antichrist. It looks at the economic
and government preparations to bring in the antichrist.

3. One Leader
In Revelation 6:2 it says "And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he
that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went
forth conquering, and to conquer." Also, in Revelation 13:3-4 it says "3
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly
wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they
worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped
the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war
with him?"

From these scriptures, we see that the antichrist in the tribulation
period will have a military. In this news article, we are seeing the top
brass in the EU headquarters performing its 8th exercise in the European
Union or Revived Roman Empire. The following quote is from an article
titled "EU Tests its Military Crisis Management Structures - MILEX 2013"
(Note 9). In this article it states

"The European Union launched its eighth Crisis Management Exercise on
Monday 11 November 2013. MILEX 13 is organised by the European External
Action Service (EEAS) from 11 to 22 November 2013 under the provisions of
the Lisbon Treaty. It will involve elements of EU crisis management
response to the operational level.

MILEX 13 is an exercise concentrating on military aspects of crisis
management for an envisaged EU-led operation. The exercise focuses on the
interaction between an EU Operational level Headquarters (EU Operations
Centre OHQ, based in Brussels), and an EU Force Headquarters (EU FHQ,
based in Mont-Valérien France). MILEX 13 exercise personnel come from the
EU Military Staff and Member States, and are supported by services of the
EEAS and the Commission, working on military planning processes for the
fictitious deployment of an EU Battle Group type formation. No troops will
be deployed in the framework of the exercise.

Major General Alkiviadis STEFANIS (Greece) is the Operational Commander
for the EU Operations Centre OHQ in Brussels, and Brigadier General Daniel
GRAMMATICO (France), is the Force Commander for the EU FHQ in
Mont-Valerién, France."
