Future Prophesies - the Stage is Set (Can Happen Any Day)
MARK OF THE BEAST
Revelation 13:11-18 - The Beast from the Earth [False Prophet]
Rev 13:11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
Is the COVID vaccine the Mark of the Beast??
NO, not yet, but it IS the set-up for it!
Revelation 14: 9-11 - The Proclamations of Three Angels
Rev 14:9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
Revelation 16:2 - First Bowl: Loathsome Sores
Rev 16:2 So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.
Rev 19:19-21 - The Beast and His Armies Defeated
19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.
Revelation 20:4 - The Saints Reign with Christ 1,000 Years
Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
Matthew 24:3-13 - The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age
Mt 24:3 “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
Revelation 18:23 - Finality of Babylon’s Fall
Rev 18:23 The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived.
sorcery = φαρμακείᾳ [pharmakeia]
Pharmakeia is our root word for pharmacy (drugs) - by your drugs all the nations were deceived.
The Greek word pharmakeia is where the English word “pharmacy” is derived from. It was synonymous with sorcery in the Bible. “Sorceries” means “the use of drugs” which denotes the magic rites of the heathen.
Mystics and witches alike have long touted narcotics for their ability to help access the spiritual realm. In ancient times, mixtures of herbs and animal parts were concocted to assist an occult practitioner in casting spells or summoning spirits.

What is the Mark of the Beast
One of the most important things that you have to understand during this time is the Mark of the Beast. First let’s look at all of the references in the book of Revelation concerning this mark.
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.
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Revelation 15:2
And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. Revelation 16:2
And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
This is what is known about this mark:
1) During the rule of the antichrist, he will institute a system whereby nobody can buy or sell anything. – This will be a very trying time for the Christians on the earth. You will not be able to buy food, medicine, clothes, etc. Likewise, you will not be able to sell anything. More than likely money will be obsolete and any funds you may have in the bank (or stocks, etc ) is worthless unless you take this mark. Living day to day will become difficult without the ability to buy or sell anything.
2) Anyone who receives this mark will have painful sores on their body when the angel pours out God’s wrath (the first vial ) upon the earth. – These sores will not be a slight nuisance, they will be terribly painful.
3) Anyone who receives this mark will spend eternity in Hell (the lake of fire) and will be tormented forever.
– This is the most important thing to remember about this mark. Even though it means that you might starve to death or be killed for refusing this mark, remember that you are an eternal creature. Life doesn’t stop when you die on this earth. You will spend an eternity with God or in the Lake of Fire. Many Christians before you have died as martyrs and kept their faith through trials and tribulations. Let me assure you that your reward in heaven is incomprehensibly better than any temporary safety you may garner from accepting this mark.
4) Anyone who refuses to accept the mark will be persecuted by the antichrist.
– Most people on the earth are going to accept this mark and seal their fate forever. The Christians, who will most likely be the majority of those refusing to take this mark, will bear the brunt of this persecution. There could be a price on anyone’s head for refusing to take this mark. Your friends and family may turn you in, possibly your own spouse or children. The antichrist will probably portray the people refusing the mark as the evil ones. No matter what anybody says, no matter what violence you are threatened with – do not take this mark.
These things are not known at the time of this publication:
1) What exactly the mark will be.
– A lot of people think that it will be some sort of implantable microchip. This makes sense because of the ability to track purchases electronically is commonplace. It could be that the microchip will be tied into a huge database that verifies the person’s bank accounts and automatically deducts the funds. Also the antichrist may pitch different selling points of the mark like the ability to track lost children, the ability to catch criminals very fast, the ability to safeguard your money. However, I believe the main point of the mark will be to show that you worship the antichrist. The mark could also be a tattoo or something along that line. When the antichrist makes this system mandatory worldwide, you will know what it is.
2) What the number of the beast is.
-I mention this because in Revelation 13:18 it mentions the number of the beast (the antichrist ) in reference to the mark. Many people have tried to deduce which world leader is the antichrist by adding up the numerical values of their names. I have seen at least ten people that supposedly were the antichrist because their names added up to 666. Many prophecy scholars think that the number 666 is a reference to the antichrist mimicking the Holy trinity. The number 6 is the number of man and indicates his sinful nature and is one short of the number 7 which indicates holiness. I believe that during the tribulation the Christians will understand this and know the answer to this scripture.
3) Exactly when the mark will be instituted.
– Most prophecy scholars think that the mark of the beast will be instituted at midpoint through the tribulation (after the antrichrist comes back to life ). However, I would suggest to be prepared at anytime for the mark to be instituted.
What you can do to prepare for the mark of the beast:
1) Pray to God for guidance.
2) Get out of the cities and towns and into the countryside. Get in contact with other Christians and work with them on contingency plans.
3) Store food and medicine in a safe place. If possible, store these items in two or more secure locations in case you have to leave suddenly or one of your stashes is found.
4) Learn as much as you can about survival skills. What things in the woods you can eat, how to make a quick shelter in the wilderness, etc. This may come in handy if you have to be on the run.
In summary, I want to re-emphasize the point that if you take the mark – you have turned your back on God and will be tormented in the Lake of fire forever. I have written this section assuming that you are a Christian. If you haven’t accepted Jesus as your personal savior yet, that is without a doubt the most important decision you have to make this very minute. If you don’t take the mark of the beast, but haven’t accepted Christ as your savior before you die- you will still end up in hell.
I won’t mince words about what this system (the mark of the beast ) means to you. Your chances of making it alive to the end of the tribulation period is slim. The whole world is going to hate you and it will be a daily struggle to just to stay alive. I want to leave you with this verse:
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
A Solid Argument Why the 'Vaccine' COULD Be the Mark of the Beast
Have you ever wondered what would happen to those people who died without ever hearing about Jesus Christ and the salvation that is available to humanity through the redemptive work of Jesus on the cross?
Would it be fair to allow people to become Satan's eternal property when there were 4,000 years that passed before the knowledge of salvation were revealed to humanity. What does the Bible say about this and are there any revelations about this question in God's Word?
In this video, we look at an amazing revelation with far-reaching consequences, not only for humanity but also for our enemy, Satan.
7 Reasons Why the COVID Vaccine Is Not the Mark of the Beast :: By Tim Buck
There have been many conspiracies and rumors surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine, and one has people thinking the vaccine is the Mark of the Beast.
The phrase “Mark of the Beast” can be found in Revelation 13. Some Christians believe if they get the vaccine, they will be marked for hell. This is written in the hope of stopping those rumors.
“He [False Prophet] forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name” (Revelation 13:16-17).
The biblical mark of the beast is external, not in the bloodstream, and must be visibly worn on the outside of the forehead or right hand. The mark is a literal, visible branding of sorts like the Nazi swastika or ISIS headband. It must be displayed and easily seen to function as a passport for commerce.
The mark-of-the-beast does not begin until the middle of the 7-year Tribulation. The context of Revelation 13 shows the marking campaign is enforced by the False Prophet, who doesn’t begin his evil campaign until the second half of the Tribulation.
“The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months” (Revelation 13:5).
The mark of the beast is only authorized by one person, which Revelation 13 identifies as the False Prophet. Neither Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates, nor anyone else qualifies as the False Prophet who carries out the monstrous plans of Antichrist. Nor does wearing the logos of the World Health Organization or the Centers for Disease Control qualify as the mark. Only the False Prophet has the authority to implement such a devious program.
“He [False Prophet] exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed” (Revelation 13:12).
According to Revelation 13:17-18, it is mandatory for the mark to brandish at least one of two required statements:
“They could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name” (Revelation 13:17).
Here we see that the mark can either display the name of the beast, or it can simply exhibit the number associated with the beast, which equates to 666. The COVID vaccination does not contain either of these required statements.
The purpose of the mark of the beast is to pledge allegiance and to outwardly show one’s full submission to the beast. The “beast” is a symbolic term for the empire of Antichrist. Wearing the mark has absolutely nothing to do with any kind of medical treatment for a pandemic or disease.
The beast in this context refers to the final 10-king empire, which is ruled over by Antichrist in the Tribulation. Beginning in Daniel 2 through Revelation 17, the 10-king empire (beast) is mentioned or alluded to some 20 times, showing it is a crucial sign of the last days. But neither the empire nor the Tribulation period has arrived yet, making it impossible for the vaccination to be the “mark of the beast”!
Daniel 7:23 further tells us that the empire (the beast) will rise up in the last days BEFORE Antichrist makes his first appearance in the world. Since the empire hasn’t arrived yet, neither has Antichrist or the False Prophet. All three must be in place as prerequisites to the start of any kind of marking campaign.
Everyone will know precisely when they are taking the mark. The life and death conditions and dangerous atmosphere surrounding the campaign are public, not secret. The death penalty for not taking the mark makes it impossible to take it accidentally, like some are trying to infer is happening by taking the vaccination.
To ensure everyone gets the message, the Bible says God sends out an angel who flies through the heavens with a loud voice saying, “DON’T TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST.” So if you take the mark, there will be no excuse since one is choosing to worship Antichrist and not Jesus Christ.
“A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: ‘If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name” (Revelation 14:9-11).
Lastly, it helps to remember that, according to 2 Thessalonians 2:6-8, Christians will not see Antichrist. The One who “holds back” Antichrist is none other than the Holy Spirit. When the restraining influence of the Spirit is removed from this world—along with the church that the Spirit indwells—then Antichrist will be revealed and will have free rein.
Regardless of how bad things seem to be deteriorating today, evil is still being hindered by the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit in the life of believers all over the world. But once the church age ends, the obstruction of the indwelling Holy Spirit will be removed, allowing the man of sin to come forth.
Without Antichrist here yet, the mark cannot be here yet. The special promise to the church is that Antichrist will not be revealed until Jesus returns for the church and catches us up to heaven!
Maranatha… Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
Enabling the Mark of the Beast :: By Britt Gillette
As COVID-19 continues to circulate around the world, it becomes increasingly clear it poses a threat to more than just global health. Governments all over the world have used the crisis to expand their power and trample individual liberty. As 2021 nears its end, governments are increasingly dividing the world into two camps – the vaccinated and the unvaccinated.
For example, on September 9th, President Biden held a press conference in which he announced a series of new vaccine mandates potentially impacting more than 100 million Americans. Biden is authoring rules to require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week. The ink hasn’t even dried yet on those executive orders, and already The Hill reports he’s mulling the idea of implementing vaccine requirements for all air travel.
Unfortunately, such COVID tyranny isn’t limited to the United States. In South Australia, the government is rolling out a new app that requires citizens to take a photo of themselves and report their location on demand within 15 minutes of authorities requesting it. The non-compliant will face a police investigation.
Recently, Australian MP Daniel Andrews vowed to “lock out” the unvaccinated when it comes to medical care and conducting commerce. “There is going to be a vaccinated economy, and you get to participate in that if you are vaccinated,” Andrews stated. “We’re going to move to a situation where, to protect the health system, we are going to lock out people who are not vaccinated and can be.”
In Italy, flying drones monitor the temperatures of beachgoers “to track COVID-19 and prevent health emergencies.” Israel, France, and countless other nations have set up “vaccine passport” systems. Under these systems, the unvaccinated are denied access to gyms, concerts, restaurants, and sporting events. In the United States, similar measures have been put in place in New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Universities make the vaccine a requirement for enrollment, and in some cases, the unvaccinated are denied medical care. For example, one Florida doctor sent a letter to her patients telling them she will no longer treat the unvaccinated.
Throughout the world, society is singling out the unvaccinated for punishment. Those who refuse the COVID vaccines face potential loss of jobs, healthcare, freedom of movement, and liberty in general. Those who support vaccine mandates and vaccine passports want to ostracize the unvaccinated from society. They seek to apply maximum pressure to force the unvaccinated into compliance.
Does any of this sound eerily familiar? It should. The Book of Revelation describes a similar system whereby the people of the world are forced to receive a mark on their right hand or forehead. Those who refuse to comply will be unable to buy or sell. They’ll effectively be cut off from society.
Are COVID vaccines the mark of the beast written about in the Book of Revelation? No. The mark of the beast will involve a conscious decision to give one’s allegiance to the Antichrist. No one will accept it by mistake. Nevertheless, vaccine mandates and passports create a social system enabling the mark of the beast. If they are allowed to stand, they will create a mark of the beast system indistinguishable in impact from the true mark of the beast. In doing so, they’ll pave the way for the rise of the Antichrist and the mark of the beast as outlined in the Book of Revelation. To understand why, let’s take a closer look at the biblical description of the mark.
What is the Mark?
What does the Bible actually say about the mark of the beast? It says the mark will be an outward expression of a person’s allegiance to the Antichrist. As global dictator, he’ll require it, and the mark will appear on a person’s right hand or forehead (Revelation 13:16). What will it look like? We don’t know for sure.
It could be a tattoo, a microchip, or something else (maybe even a vaccine). But whatever it looks like, it won’t be concealed. It will be visible to everyone. We don’t know the exact form it will take, but it will be a number representing the Antichrist’s name. His number is 666 (Revelation 13:18).
Those who refuse the mark of the beast will be shut out of the global economy. They’ll be unable to buy or sell anything without it (Revelation 13:17). Some will even face beheading for their refusal to accept it (Revelation 20:4).
What Happens to Those Who Refuse the Mark?
After the Antichrist enters the Temple and declares himself God (2 Thessalonians 2:4), he’ll require everyone on earth to accept the mark (Revelation 13:16). Accepting the mark will be a pledge of allegiance to the Antichrist. Again, this will either be the number 666 or a name that adds up to 666 (Revelation 13:18). All who accept the mark will display it on their right hand or their forehead (Revelation 13:16). This will make it easy for society to identify them. Society will blacklist anyone who refuses the mark. Every buy/sell transaction will be linked to it. As a result, those without it will be unable to buy or sell anything (Revelation 13:17). This will put enormous social pressure on people to accept the mark.
Think about it. Imagine if you couldn’t buy or sell anything. How would you get food to survive? How would you get shelter, clothes, and the basic necessities of life? The pressure for most people will be too much to bear. They’ll give in and accept the mark. It’s likely only committed Christians or devoted members of a religion condemning such a practice will refuse the mark. In some cases, the consequences will be worse than economic. Some people will be martyred for their refusal to accept the mark (Revelation 20:4).
Enabling the Mark of the Beast System
While I don’t believe the current COVID vaccines are the actual mark of the beast, vaccine mandates and vaccine passports impose a social system identical to the one imposed by the mark of the beast. How? By blacklisting from society anyone who refuses to accept the vaccine. How many people have already lost their jobs? How many people are now under threat of losing their jobs? In some places, the unvaccinated aren’t allowed to enter concerts, sporting events, restaurants, or gyms. In some countries, they aren’t even allowed to enter grocery stores.
In pushing vaccine mandates and passports, the world is paving the way for the rise of the Antichrist and the implementation of the mark of the beast. Whether or not you accept a COVID vaccine is a personal choice. Feel free to take it or not take it. That’s up to you. I support your choice either way. But if you support coercive vaccine mandates and vaccine passports, you’re complicit in establishing the infrastructure and the precedent for the mark of the beast system.
To be clear – the current COVID vaccines are NOT the mark of the beast. If you’re vaccinated, there’s nothing wrong with that. If you’re unvaccinated, there’s nothing wrong with that either. Whether or not you’re vaccinated or unvaccinated does nothing to establish the mark of the beast system. However, vaccine mandates and vaccine passports do. They create the very foundation for the mark of the beast system.
Every Christian should oppose vaccine mandates and vaccine passports because supporting them is the same as supporting the mark of the beast system. In practice, they’re one and the same. If you accept the idea the government has the rightful power to inject a substance into someone against their will (or pressure them to submit), then government power has no limit. Unfortunately, far too many people believe the government does hold this power. And their belief enables the mark of the beast system, creating a world ripe for the rise of the Antichrist.
This is yet another sign of the times in which we live. Israel is back in the land (Jeremiah 23:7-8). The Jewish people are back in Jerusalem (Luke 21:24-28). The Gospel is being preached throughout the world (Matthew 24:14). And now we see the mark of the beast system embraced by much of the world. Jesus said when you see all these events take place, look up because He’s coming soon (Luke 21:28). So use what little time we have left to spread the Gospel because Jesus is coming!
THE MARK OF THE BEAST
The ultimate sign that you're headed for the worst day of your life would have to be this...You wake up one morning only to realize that your family has suddenly disappeared. So you run to turn on your TV to see what's happening and there you watch a special worldwide news report declaring that millions of people all over the planet have simply vanished. As you spy the Bible on the coffee table, it suddenly dawns on you that your family was right after all when they kept telling you about the rapture of the Church. Then to your horror, you realize that you've been left behind and have been catapulted into mankind's darkest hour, the 7-year Tribulation that really is coming upon the whole world. But thankfully, God is not only a God of wrath; He's a God of love as well. And because He loves you and I, He has given us many warning signs to show us that the Tribulation is near and that His 2nd Coming is rapidly approaching. Therefore, The Final Countdown takes a look at 10 signs given by God to lovingly wake us up so we'd give our lives to Him before it's too late. These signs are the Jewish People, Modern Technology, Worldwide Upheaval, The Rise of Falsehood, The Rise of Wickedness, The Rise of Apostasy, One World Religion, One World Government, One World Economy, and The Mark of the Beast. Like it or not folks, we are headed for The Final Countdown. Please, if you haven't already done so, give your life to Jesus today, because tomorrow may be too late!

RFID - Man's Greatest Invention or Mark of the Beast?
It's being heralded as a silent revolution, a state of the art global tracking device, and as significant of an invention as the Internet or even the computer itself. What is this device? It's none other than RFID. But with all the hoopla aside, the question we need to be asking ourselves is this, Is RFID man's greatest invention or Mark of the Beast? Yet the irony is that even though this technology is sweeping the planet, hardly anyone, even Christians, have any idea what it is in the first place, let alone its Biblical ramifications! Therefore, this series takes a look at three things to equip you with the facts concerning this planetary tracking device. First you'll see the Definite Concern of RFID and what this technology can do as well as what the corporations will do. Secondly you'll see the Dangerous Deployment of RFID and its current and planned usage to monitor and track everything from retail, food, shipping, transportation, medical, government, money, and everything else in between. And thirdly, you'll see the Dark Future of RFID with not only plans to monitor and track animals with an RFID implant, but humans as well. People, this is not a science fiction scenario of the future. It's present day reality with today's technology called RFID. And that's why the Mark of the Beast is not only real, it's really going to be implemented just like the Bible said. In fact, it might be sooner than you think.
TECHNOLOGY OF THE MARK OF THE BEAST
END OF HUMANITY - TRANSHUMANISM
Transhumanism is a philosophical movement that advocates the enhancement of the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies able to greatly enhance longevity, mood and cognitive abilities. It promotes the view that the human species should take control of its own evolution through human-enhancement technologies, such as brain implants and nanotechnology that reverses aging. This will then allow humanity to transcend its physical and mental limitations. The central premise of transhumanism is that biological evolution will eventually be overtaken by advances in genetic, wearable and implantable technologies that artificially expedite the evolutionary process.
Transhumanism and the WEF Fourth Industrial Revolution
One of the three main goals of the Great Reset agenda is “to harness the innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to support the public good…” As the founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF), Klaus Schwab, explains, the Fourth Industrial Revolution “will lead to a fusion of our physical, digital, and biological identities.” He specifically considers technologies that will change what it means to be human, because they will integrate into the human body and mind in order to overcome (‘transcend’) their limitations. Sound familiar? As Schwab himself admits, these new technologies can also “intrude into the hitherto private space of our minds, reading our thoughts and influencing our behavior…” While these technologies seem like science fiction, they are nearly at our doorstep. In fact, much of the pandemic response effort relies on Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies, such as genetic sequencing, vaccine biotechnology (mRNA and vector platforms), and contact tracing (mass surveillance) software. Social distancing measures have also forced people to replace their physical world with a virtual one, including digital versions of school, church, shopping, and even parties. While this has been a terrible loss for most people, this digitalisation of our lives (including COV-id apps and digital currency) is part of the WEF’s vision for our future, and therefore, in their view, quite desirable.
If one takes the publications of the WEF as an indication of how the Fourth Industrial Revolution will change society, the world is facing a massive onslaught against individual liberty and private property. A new kind of collectivism is about to emerge. Like the communism of the past, the new project appeals to the public with the assurance of technological advancement and social inclusion. Additionally, ecological sustainability and the promise of longevity or even immortality are used to entice the public. In reality, however, these promises are deeply dystopian.
Transhumanism - the new religion
While there is a big debate about whether transhumanism should be defined as a religion or not, it definitely functions like a religion, in the sense that it provides a framework of meaning for human life that contains many of the goals of classical world religions.
Immortality - Most religions promise the goal of immortality, either in this life or after death.
Some traditions (like Christianity and Islam) clearly aim for immortality after death (resurrection or heaven).
Other traditions (like some forms of Daoism) have aimed for immortality in this life; usually through alchemical potions or self-cultivation, such as yoga and meditation.
Transhumanism also aims for immortality, but through technology rather than through supernatural aid or spiritual transformation. Technologies that will be used for this include nanorobots, genetic engineering, and converting our brain activity into a digital form, and then uploading it into a supercomputer that will last forever (if possible).
Permanent happiness - Most religions seek a state of permanent happiness
Either in this life (nirvana in Buddhism)
After death (paradise in Christianity or Islam).
Transhumanists think this can instead be achieved by creating ‘happiness drugs’ and brain-chip interfaces that manipulate the brain’s pleasure centres.
Divinity - Most religions aspire for human beings to attain a state of divinity.
The transhumanist ideal is likewise for humans to become god-like creators who can manipulate the material world at will (through 3D printing and atom-assembling nano-robots), and even to create new forms of life (through synthetic biology).
All of this shows that transhumanism is based on the assumption that suffering (such as aging, sickness, and death) is a technical rather than a metaphysical problem, and can therefore be solved with more and better technologies.
Matthew 24:3-13 - The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age
Mt 24:3 “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.
What big tech is telling us is that they are the way to our salvation - to eternal life - through technology
The elites have figured out eternal life, but our planet can not sustain the population as it is
"They're going to create utopia on the planet. They'll be on their own god - literally, that is what they believe. They want to annihilate 90% of the population and only reserve about 10% to serve them. And they want to genetically modify us to make us better worker bees." --Billy Crone
The Bible supports the idea that they figure out eternal life
Revelation 9:1 Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. 3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. 6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
Isaiah 28:14 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scornful men, Who rule this people who are in Jerusalem, 15 Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death, And with Sheol we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, It will not come to us, For we have made lies our refuge, And under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.
16 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation,
A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.
17 Also I will make justice the measuring line, And righteousness the plummet;
The hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, And the waters will overflow the hiding place.
18 Your covenant with death will be annulled, And your agreement with Sheol will not stand;
When the overflowing scourge passes through, Then you will be trampled down by it.
Elon Musk says humans must become cyborgs to stay relevant. Is he right?
Humans must become cyborgs if they are to stay relevant in a future dominated by artificial intelligence. That was the warning from Tesla founder Elon Musk, speaking at an event in Dubai this weekend (2017). Musk argued that as artificial intelligence becomes more sophisticated, it will lead to mass unemployment. “There will be fewer and fewer jobs that a robot can’t do better,” he said at the World Government Summit. If humans want to continue to add value to the economy, they must augment their capabilities through a “merger of biological intelligence and machine intelligence”. If we fail to do this, we’ll risk becoming “house cats” to artificial intelligence.
Silicon Valley’s quest for immortality – and its worrying sacrifices
Immortality or humanity?
There will always be a myriad of ways our mortal forms can go wrong. And we’ve seen that physiological constraints seem set to always hold us back from drastically extending our lifespans and remedying the root cause of ageing – if there even is one.
But on the border between science fiction and pioneering science rest exciting technological ideas that could perhaps unlock a different kind of immortality. Technology can already help us catch age-related defects early, but it holds the potential to become even better: what if we were able to circumvent biological trade offs entirely?
Billionaire Elon Musk’s company Neuralink is already on the march to set us down this transhumanist path. It envisages a future where humans are far more intimately connected with their electronic devices than we are today. It invites us to work towards a brain-machine interface that would fundamentally integrate us with our technology, achieving a truly symbiotic relationship.
Daniel 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.
The research is still in its early stages, but brain-machine interfaces are already in use in the form of ear and eye implants that can restore our senses, and brain implants that allow disabled people to remotely control computers and robots. Neuralink aims to take this a step further by seamlessly connecting us to electronic devices, the internet and even other humans. Essentially, we’d all have encyclopaedic information on hand and be able to communicate with one another telepathically.
To make this remarkable enhancement possible, a brain-machine interface would be injected into our bloodstream and travel to the brain. There it would self-assemble into a mesh-like structure on the outside of the cerebral cortex, entwining technology to the core of our intelligence and sentience.
Neuralink and the technology it inspires could become a gateway to a post-human future. Through research in this area, we may decipher the means to accurately translate our organic, chemical neuronal pathways into electronic data that could encapsulate them. And so we may, eventually, be able to capture our beings within a computer, living forever as digital memory accessed by a piece of software.
This is what I believe will become the Mark of the Beast - Neuralink, AI technology merged with the human brain that will enable immortality.
Rev 9:5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. 6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
Isaiah 28:15 Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death, And with Sheol we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, It will not come to us, For we have made lies our refuge, And under falsehood we have hidden ourselves. 16 Therefore thus says the Lord God: ...
18 Your covenant with death will be annulled, And your agreement with Sheol will not stand; When the overflowing scourge passes through, Then you will be trampled down by it.
Understanding the Brain
A web of communication that allows you to move, think, feel and sense.
We’re designing the first neural implant that will let you control a computer or mobile device anywhere you go. Micron-scale threads are inserted into areas of the brain that control movement. Each thread contains many electrodes and connects them to an implant, the Link.
A Direct Link Between the Brain & Everyday Technology
The initial goal of our technology will be to help people with paralysis to regain independence through the control of computers and mobile devices. Our devices are designed to give people the ability to communicate more easily via text or speech synthesis, to follow their curiosity on the web, or to express their creativity through photography, art, or writing apps.
