Epocalypse: The Cashless Society Is Almost Upon Us

There has been endless discussion over the last few years about how we’re heading toward a cashless society and what that will mean. But never has it been as close as it is now. Numerous countries across the globe have begun actively taking steps to limit the use of currency and are rapidly initiating controls on its use. In conjunction with government policies, some banks are beginning to charge negative interest rates, actually charging customers for depositing their money. Others have begun refusing to allow that cash be stored in safe deposit boxes. Across the board, banking institutions and government are working hand-in-hand to shut down the use of cash. There are a number of reasons given for this, from convenience to security, but the underlying motive really is control.

The Cashless Society: Coming in 2016 to a Nation Near You

“There will be no ability to buy or sell anything without government approval. That is where we are going and this may be the major event that erupts after 2015.” We’d note that this statement is from a secular publication, not a Christian one. We’ve been warning for some time that we’re on the verge of the Beast system coming to power, controlling everyone and everything, just as the Bible warns will happen in the Tribulation. We’re at the gate with this pronouncement.

Just Created: A Cloaking Device For Time

The first cloaking device, a staple plot feature on programs such as Star Trek, has been created. We’ve grown comfortable with science fiction concepts over the last few decades. We speak of them as easily as we do of objects or events in our everyday world. But we recognize that they’re fiction. Now however, the line is beginning to blur, and that makes techies and trekkies alike stand back in wonder and fascination. We’re on the cusp of a world both familiar and yet novel. It holds the promise of exciting new ways of living but it also has the potential to be used as the basis for the most evil, deceptive system the world ever has seen – a system devised in hell. While some of these advances may be beneficial, we should move toward them cautiously, and embrace them only after considering their possible ramifications in light of where Scripture tells us we’re going and how they may be used.

Interactive Tattoo Instead of a Chip – Will This Ultimately Become the Mark of the Beast?

Step by step we’re progressing toward the mark of the beast. With each small technological improvement, we’re subtly being sold on the increased convenience and improved safety of new upgrades and expanded use, so that we never recognize a giant leap from past to future. It’s all coming about naturally, with improvements so small that they aren’t threatening. But what’s really happening is that we’re being directed to accept something we never would have agreed to in the beginning, before technology became such a fixture of everyday life.

“Cybersecurity Framework”: Government Regulation To Replace Passwords With Biometrics

We’ve been warning for some time about the mark of the beast and how it will be mandatory for all citizens if they want to work, buy, sell or participate in society in any manner. That eventuality just got a giant step closer with a statement by the President’s head of cybersecurity. Citing the risk of hackers, he announced that they have developed a panel to make recommendations for legislation requiring biometric identification. He believes consumers will be in favor of such regulation despite fears of NSA spying and other concerns. The reason for this belief is the ease with which they have accepted fingerprint touch pads on iPhones and other devices. That’s why daily Bible reading and a constant communion with God are so important. The cares of this life and the pleasures of the world can make us forget where it really is heading. It takes effort to keep up on all of the latest tech advances and then view them in conjunction with the overall spirit of the age in order to get a clear picture of where we’re being led. But if you take the time to do that, and look at it all through the lens of the Scripture, you won’t be misled.

Has the First Step Toward the ‘Hive Mind’ Just Been Taken?

The common factor in all of these articles is the drive toward a unified whole, a “hive mind” where everyone fits as a small piece of a larger puzzle. In this new world into which we’re heading, conformity is mandatory and decisions are made for us, based on huge data bases that tell authorities who is accepting his or her role as a cog and who isn’t. This conformity is necessary for control. But despite the inconvenience and dissent individuality has produced in the world, God deemed it preferable to a world of robotic slaves. But that is not the vision of the elite in charge here and now. They long for a “perfect world” where control is optimized and their will can be carried out without question by the programmed minions of the hive mind. It is the antithesis of what God designed and what disciples of Christ seek to become individually. The result is an increasing conflict which becomes more clear with each technological innovation.

The “Real ID” Is a Real Harbinger of Things To Come

What’s happening now with the Real ID is the pattern for what is to follow. The ramifications will make life so difficult that most people will willingly accept it rather than be subject, first to the inconvenience of refusing it, then to the impossibility of living normally without it. It’s classic manipulation of the masses, which is preferred by lawmakers to outright legislation forcing people to comply. Because of that, it’s even more dangerous because it won’t lead people to rise up in protest. After all, they aren’t required to have one, are they? Beware of anything that is promoted in such an underhanded manner and watch closely what follows in its wake.
