Cannot buy or sell… (Rev. 13:16-17)
Foundation for the Beast system being laid
Many of us have pondered scriptures in Revelation 13 and have wondered what they could mean or how the Beast system could forbid anyone to buy or sell. Certainly it appears we’re watching the groundwork already being set here in America and around the world. In a few months I hope to come out with a far more detailed sermon on this topic and other topics related to it.
Revelation 13:16-18 “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.”
This is not a political blog, though some of you may feel it is. This is intended to show you how the foundation for the coming Beast system, which is almost here now, is being laid and has been laid.
There is a coming “mark of the Beast”. Many postulate what that is, but I won’t. We’ll recognize it soon enough and when we do see it, we must not accept it for ourselves.
We believers are absolutely warned NOT to take the mark of the Beast or we will come under God’s severe punishment. We cannot love God and the Beast. But if we don’t take the Beast’s “mark”, we may find ourselves unable to buy or sell anything, or to even pay our mortgage or rent or to receive or cash a pay check from work. So it will be tempting to some to give in – but we will die if we do.
Please carefully read Revelation 14:9-11; 15:2 and Rev 16:2. Those who stand before God refused to ever accept that mark. Check out my blog about “which mark will be on your forehead”? Just type in “Mark” in the Search bar. GOD also marks his children on their forehead. See Ezekiel 9 and Rev. 3:12; 14:1.
We want God’s mark. We will NOT want the Mark of the Beast.
Are we much closer to this hellish nightmare being possible soon? President Biden recently implemented Executive Order # 14067 to start the beginnings of the Digital Dollar system. It’s officially called “CBDC” - Central Bank Digital Currency, having to do with controlling Digital Assets.
As countries adopt this, their digital currency will come under the complete control of their country’s central bank. Cash, dollar bills and coins as we know them – will eventually totally disappear. Start learning about it. It’s been in effect since December 13, 2022. Eventually - be watching – this could begin to replace our current cash money system and replace it completely with digital currency. Each will have his or her own “digital wallet”.
The EU plans to go digital as well, and do the same thing. Watch Canada, Britain and dozens of countries around the world follow suit. There are some positive benefits of having CBDC – digital currency. When the government wants to give certain ones some Stimulus checks, they can just drop it in to their account, reducing fraud (they tell me), waste and wasted time. We will hear of a dozen or more exciting examples of how much better it will be – and truly there will be some initial benefits.
But IF and when this gets implemented as planned, we COULD all be at the mercy of our governments – and eventually the one world-ruling Beast power. Whether you live in USA or Kenya or the Philippines, this will likely come to your country and every country soon.
Just be aware of it, and be watching. You may want to move some of your cash 401K plans to silver or gold. Learn about it.
NOTE: I AM NOT saying this CBDC – the digital currency – will be the “mark” of the Beast, but it looks very possible to me that for the Beast power to KNOW you want to buy something, they have to have something that immediately TELLS their system where you are and what you want to buy or sell. They need a way to allow billions of people around the world to buy or sell or to shut them down.
So the digital currency may not be the mark – but could be the METHOD that is used to work WITH the “mark of the Beast” to control the whole world.
We already have had crypto currency – but not at the government level. Now we do. This could give the government all the authority they need to turn off your money supply instantly and remotely without giving you any notice. If the government feels you are a threat to their goals – they could stop you from buying gas or food or anything else, with the flick of a switch.
They could, conceivably, even restrict which companies you could invest with, if certain companies weren’t deemed compliant enough. China already has their Social Credit Score system. Much of the world and their companies are already being evaluated on an ESG score – Environmental, Social and Governance. Everything you’re hearing from the WOKE liberals would be part of the Social side, so now many of our boys don’t know if they’re a boy or girl – and vice versa.
Oil companies, for example, are rated low on ESG scoring because of their Environmental score. So you would be encouraged to invest in companies with high ESG scores, because they are more inline, more “woke” and doing the government’s bidding on Climate change. (See my teaching on Climate. Just use the Search bar). If a central government is given complete control of everyone’s spending and investing, it would be very easy to punish those who are not complying in the Government’s view. It would be easy for them to freeze your account.
WILL all this happen? I’m not saying they absolutely will. I’m saying they absolutely can.
For example, if a government feels your family is consuming too much meat, they could limit how much meat, eggs – or even gas – we’d be allowed to buy.
Or if you’re considered to be one of these who are deemed a “threat to our democracy” because of your conservative views, you could be targeted so you could not buy any guns or ammunition. (You in other countries, yes – so far – we in America still have in our Constitution the right to bear arms.)
Our private digital accounts could also be frozen outright. Do a Google study on what “bail-in” means.
In the past our governments ‘bailed out” companies deemed too big to fail, to important to let them collapse. SO your money was used to bail them out. A “bail in” is when governments feel they must confiscate private savings, IRA’s, checking accounts, etc. to bail the government out! This has happened in recent memory in Cyprus, Lebanon and other countries. People lost their total retirement savings! Don’t believe it can’t happen here or in your country.
You like that? Revelation 13:16 is coming – when we won’t be able to buy or sell unless and until we receive some kind of mark in your right hand or forehead. Ideas of exactly what that will be are myriad. But I believe it could be just a matter of months or possibly a few years before we finally see it starting to happen.
But again, dear believers, WE MUST NOT take the mark of the Beast. We must not.
I believe and speculate that The Beast and the False Prophet are already alive and here, but just have not revealed themselves yet. Someone or something is still holding them back, as 2 Thess 2 says. I believe the Two Witnesses, two men – are already alive, but neither have they yet begun their ministry, but will begin 3-1/2 years before Christ returns. I find this very exciting, even though I don’t look forward to the terrible times we’ll see before Yeshua (Jesus) returns.
I don’t believe this “turning off your access to your money” will be implemented for months yet, maybe even a year or more, but watch for it; I believe it’s coming. Maybe I’m being too optimistic! Maybe it’s just a few months away.
Here are some more examples of how it could work against you:
For example, let’s say you refuse to get the Covid vaccination or a future similar vax. The Government could keep you from financially functioning until you do get the vax. Is it possible that the armed 87,000 additional IRS agents to be hired are going to be the ones to be sure to implement this digital currency? They could make sure all the banks and businesses transition to this new system. But maybe the Republican house will not fund the hiring of these 87,000 armed thugs.
You think I’m going overboard? Do you remember how Canada’s government treated the Freedom Convoy of truckers? They were protesting Canada’s harsh lockdowns and vaccine mandates that made no sense as they went back and forth from/to the USA.
What did Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau do? He described the truckers as a crazy “fringe minority” and said their views were unacceptable. Many of the truckers’ bank accounts were frozen and they had no recourse. The crime? Peacefully protesting – but they lost access to their money. Don’t think that can’t happen here or in your country. Those in power don’t like dissent or lack of cooperation to their “woke” ideas.
Keep an eye out for how this starts. If you don’t agree with the leftist leaders, your ideas are called “dangerous”. We’re even hearing them described as “treasonous”. This makes it much easier to justify to the rest of the country why severe action had to be taken against such people who are even being labeled as “internal terrorists” – like the moms who protested at school boards about the pornographic books in the school library that their children were being told to read. Dangerous, treasonous internal terrorists. They sound terrible and when the majority of the country says nothing, government is emboldened.
Again, we’re talking about the digital dollar – or the CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency) and how a person or group is labeled can determine what is done to their assets. Part of the goal of CBDC is to have the country go cashless – no more dollar bills, no more $10 bills and no more coins.
WHY? You can’t track and trace cash, but they absolutely can track every penny coming from your digital wallet in the months or years ahead when we go completely digital. I just wanted you to be aware of what could be developing right under our noses.
When all these things finally happen, it will all seem “so suddenly”. Look at how much our country has changed just in the past two years! We’re watching changes wash over our country in ways we could never have imagined.
Don’t let this frighten you. Let it wake you up to get closer to God and to Messiah as never before. Pray you be accounted worthy to escape all these things (Luke 21:36). And God bless you all.
Honestly speaking time is moving pretty very fast and as you mention in this article we need to know that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step so steps leading to emergence of the Endtime Beast system is being laid which will result into the fulfilment of Revelation 13:16-17! This blog is truly eye opening and may God fully open our eyes to see and to understand what's happening happening as far prophecy of the endtime is concerned!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the foundation of the Beast system being laid in your blog post. Your analysis of the digital currency system and how it could potentially pave the way for the mark of the Beast is thought-provoking. It's important to be aware of these issues as they could impact our ability to buy or sell, and ultimately our freedoms. Your warning to believers not to take the mark of the Beast is a timely reminder, and I look forward to hearing your upcoming sermon on this topic.
