New Global Payment Tracking System Now Arising

The Bible warns about a new payment method coming in the last days, which will require everyone to take a mark on their right hand or forehead. Without the mark, no one will be able to buy or sell anything.

16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead,
17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either 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 the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. (Revelation 13:16-18).

The mark will be mandated during a time of great distress unlike anything the world has ever seen, a time so troubling men will faint from fear when they see what they see the terrible things coming upon the earth (Daniel 12:1, Luke 21:26). In the midst of famines, pestilences, hyperinflation, earthquakes, and wars, the mark will appear to be the only way to acquire basic necessities for survival, which explains why it will be welcomed by those whose names are not written in the book of life (Matthew 24:6-7, Revelation 6:3-8).

The mark will be the essential component of a global payment tracking system capable of tracking every purchase made by every person on earth. It cannot be a simple tattoo on the skin because the system must be able to approve or reject every transaction in real time, which would require instant two-way communications between the mark and the system. It must be a highly sophisticated gadget able to send and receive data to and from a data center.

For nearly two thousand years, people have read the prophecies of the mark and wondered how it could be possible to store and process so much data, but today we no longer have to wonder because it is already happening. Our generation is the first in history to have the advanced computer technology and communication systems capable of fulfilling these prophecies.

Computer microchips have already been developed with the ability to complete financial transactions and a variety of other tasks. They can be activated and scanned by electronic readers using either Radio Frequency Identification Technology (RFID) or Near-Field Communication (NFC). They can be read by ordinary smartphones, handheld scanners, and readers installed in retail stores and office buildings. In most cases, the chips are not being implanted into people, but implants have begun and thousands of people already have them in their hand.

Recent changes in our payment methods provide more evidence we are living in the last days, the time of the return of the Lord Jesus.

Summary of Changes in Payment Methods:

The world’s payment systems have been undergoing a long transition process leading up to the mark of the beast. To help illustrate how far we have already come, just consider this brief summary of changes, which have accelerated in recent years.

In the old days, people traded tangible physical goods for other physical goods in a barter system, such as goats for donkeys. All deals were made under close scrutiny because both sides could see and inspect what they were getting. It’s not the most convenient payment method, but bartering puts everything out in the open, which gives buyers and sellers the optimum amount of light and little chance for unpleasant surprises, which translates into a high level of customer satisfaction. So why change it?

Bartering is a great way to get a square deal, but inconvenient and inefficient, so currencies were introduced as a substitute payment method. The first currencies were made of gold and silver because they had intrinsic value, as jewelry and decorations, but the invention of printing presses brought paper currencies whose only value came from the issuer’s promise to pay. At first, the paper was redeemable for physical gold and silver, but eventually the Federal Reserve Bank got their way and President Richard Nixon shut the door on that deal back in 1971. Our gold-backed paper currency became worthless fiat currency, appearing to have some real value, but like the old saying goes, “possession is nine tenths of the law.” It is hard to maintain ownership of something we don’t physically possess. With fiat currency, the Federal Reserve has possession of all the gold and silver while we have worthless pieces of paper. What could possibly go wrong?

With so many cash transactions, the bankers wanted a cut for themselves, so they launched advertising campaigns encouraging everyone to use credit cards instead of cash. They sold us on all the benefits of greater convenience, less risky, and a great way to build a good credit rating. They even offered extra discounts each time we use our cards. Their campaigns were successful. By 2014, 72% of Americans carried at least one credit card (Source: Creditcards.com). By adopting this new payment method, we gave bankers a seat at the bargaining table, right in the middle of every transaction where they could keep a percentage for themselves. Then they were finally happy, right? Nope.

Despite the success of credit cards, 28% of Americans still don’t own one. Some people refused the offer because they didn’t want the temptation of spending more money than they had in their bank account, putting them in the position of having credit card bills they couldn’t pay. The bankers were still being left out of many transactions, so they introduced the next generation payment method, debit cards. All those savvy shoppers who rejected credit cards had no reason to refuse debit cards. The bankers even accepted a smaller cut for themselves because they made up for it with increased volume. Between 2000 and 2012, the number of debit card transactions grew from 8.3 billion to 47 billion (Source: Creditcards.com) By 2014, debit cards were the number one payment method preferred by 43% of Americans compared to just 35% for credit cards. Poor old useless cash was only preferred by 9% (Source: Creditcards.com).

These new payment methods caused big problems. By May 2016, the bankers were collecting big profits from an average 15.2% credit card interest rate, which contributed to a mind boggling $3.6 trillion in outstanding consumer credit card debt (Source: Creditcards.com). It gets worse though because when the Fed is forced to raise interest rates, which they have artificially suppressed since the 2008 financial crisis, consumer debt will skyrocket. The bankers succeeded in enriching themselves while the American people moved one step closer to captivity because the borrower is the servant of the lender (Proverbs 22:7).

The transition in payment methods accelerated in 2015. Credit card chips were still new when mobile payment methods were launched by Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Android Pay, Google Wallet, and Softcard. All of these use NFC chips to store credit card details and make payments, which is the same kind of chip now being implanted into the hands of thousands of people. (Sources: FortuneComputer World)

While many of us strongly oppose getting the mark of the beast implanted into our hand or forehead, we are already carrying a very similar chip with us everywhere we go because it is in our cell phones.

Few people seem to be aware of what is happening or what it is leading to, but the transition process is nearly complete. Once we get used to swiping our phone, it will not seem like a big step to swipe our hand. The hour is indeed late and the rollout of mandatory chip implants is coming soon.

An event has transpired in India, which should cause believers to examine their preparedness. It doesn’t seem like much, but if you have eyes to see and ears to hear, you will not miss the connection. Here is the news: http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-news-india/narendra-modi-prime-minister-address-to-the-nation4364609/ The government’s intent does not seem malicious (at least, in my opinion), but let me go into this in a little more detail. 1. The ban comes without warning and with little room to maneuver. 2. The new-currency announcement also comes without warning. 3. Almost immediately, nearly all shops and establishments, except for those sanctioned by the government (hospitals and gas stations), refuse to transact in INR 500 and INR 1000 denominations, though they are pretty common denominations in daily use. 4. Immediately after the announcement, banks go on a small holiday (only for 24 hours). 5. ATMs become useless unless they can disburse lower denominations. Soon, ATMs also go offline (again only for 24 hours). 6. You cannot not just take all your money thus denominated to the bank and deposit it. You need to prove who you are. The only acceptable proof is an original government-issued ID with a xerox copy. If you choose not to deposit such currency with the bank, all such money, after expiry of the government’s timeline, becomes useless paper—without value. 7. You cannot deposit old currency and withdraw the same amount of new currency. Capital controls, though temporary, are imposed. You cannot even do multiple transactions to get around the capital controls. One withdrawal transaction from your account per day, the amount being controlled by the government. 8. You can exchange old currency for new, but only within designated banking hours. Nevertheless, all monetary transactions require valid government-issued ID with a xerox copy. All this has transpired within a matter of 48… Read more »

That is shocking, Sujit (I kind of heard something about that from a colleague yesterday but did not know exactly how bad this was!)
I hope you are ok! Will be praying for you and India this evening.

This is a terrible indication. It is a chokehold on the citizens and considering how much India is a cash economy, it will affect everyone.

What part of India are you in?

Hi, Mem,

I am in the South Indian city of Chennai in Tamil Nadu. You are right about cash being a huge part of the economy here. There was a news article about people having burnt some sacks of nonreturnable currencies. False currency notes are prevalent, but such is the counterfeiting that one could be in possession of them and not have a clue until a bank refuses to accept it. So, this move by the government is cutting both ways. People who have willingly counterfeited currency will suffer as intended, but those who have been unintended victims of such counterfeiting will suffer loss.

For those with small children and grandchildren, Dr. Katherine Albrecht has written a children’s book titled I Won’t Take the Mark. You can view some of the pages here:

Thanks James for writing about this subject. I have found that too many christians are afraid to talk about the mark or simply state ” I will never take the mark”, but how ready are they to say no and how much are they in the word and praying to stand against the evil? The Bible warns us and sadly too many think we will be raptured before this happens as well…. May everyone on this site heed to the scriptures and pray that the Lord God use us in this final hour and be more than conquerors in Him!

Anyone, everyone……..please tell me what you think………It just occurred to me just now…as I have been on this page reading this……..(hopefully inspired by the Lord), but this thought just occurred to me……thanks to the comment below about the definition of a Mark. “What if”………The “Mark” of the Beast was indeed placed upon a person’s right hand or forehead, but the chip could be anywhere in the body. By doing this, a physical mark could be seen for the Beast system Masters, but the person would have the RFID or other kind of Chip in another location in their body-say, like the left hand or arm. In this way, all sorts of person could deceive themselves into taking it, because the literal chip would not be in the right hand or forehead-just the mark would be there………and the mark would not have to be large or ugly…….just a mark…………..innocently enough………people who think themselves as Christians…….could justify their way around this and take the chip, because the chip would not be in the locations stated by God in the Bible…..just the mark-signifying the Beasts system………Is this possible? Please let me know. Maybe I’ve had too much pizza lately or new wine? But this just came to me as reading all of this……..Shalom to Ye all

Interesting thoughts. All the more reason to cling onto God so that we are not deceived.

Brother Steven…great discussion point. I have seen this brought up on another website…if the Christian takes the mark in his left hand…won’t he be saved? My thought…you still took the mark and thus are honoring the Antichrist by participating in his system. 17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. So if you can buy or sell…you are “the one who has the mark”. I believe the best way to save yourself is to not take any “marks” or chips of any kind.

I always struggle to avoid thinking of some supernatural evil looking tattoo-ish thing when hearing the word mark. I just decided to look at some definitions for the word mark ( not sure why I have not done this before )

http://www.dictionary.com/browse/mark

1. a visible impression or trace on something, as a line, cut, dent, stain, or bruise:
a small mark on his arm.
2. a badge, brand, or other visible sign assumed or imposed:
a mark of his noble rank.
3. a symbol used in writing or printing:
a punctuation mark.
4. a sign, usually an X or cross, made instead of a signature by someone who does not know how or is unable to write his or her own name.
5. an affixed or impressed device, symbol, inscription, etc., serving to give information, identify, indicate origin or ownership, attest to character or comparative merit, or the like, as a trademark.
6. a sign, token, or indication:
to bow as a mark of respect.
7. a symbol used in rating conduct, proficiency, attainment, etc., as of pupils in a school:
good marks; bad marks.

What do you guys think of and do any of those fit?

Also this portion of the Scripture: “except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.”

Does that mean there are 2 other options aside from the mark itself or the name or number are a result of the mark?

Thoughts?

shawn you are on the right track. i suggest you do a word search using strongs – in particular look up the word “mark” “charagma” in the greek. notice too that the bible says “IN the right hand or forehead” not “ON”
the word “mark” according to strongs means, amongst other things, to etch.

you also need to read that verse in its entirety – “and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”

i could be wrong but to me that doesnt suggest two other options. i think it still is the one option, the mark in the right hand, but there are different codes or coding systems.

There have been ‘eTatoos’ that attach electronics directly to the skin since 2013, the eventual Biblical ramifications are both obvious and ominous:

Who needs to implant the mark when the govt can include it in the free tattoo of your choice?

Yup.

I don’t know why, but some Catholic young people I’ve come across cherish their tattoos on their arms/back left shoulder, and they have this Ash Wednesday tradition of putting ash cross on their foreheads – a social conditioning mechanics for the coming MOTB?
