Posts Tagged ‘anti-christ’


If you don’t understand Biblical History then you can’t understand Biblical Prophecy, because the past events told in the Bible actually reveal how future events will take place in the End Times.

Ecclesiastes 1 tells us this:

Ecclesiastes 1:9
What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there a thing of which it is said,
“See, this is new”?
It has been already in the ages before us.

With this is mind, Daniel 3 reveals much about the End Times anti-christ who will set himself up as “god” and demand to be worshiped (2 Thessalonians 2:4).

We see in Daniel 3 that a statue was made, which was to be worshiped by all peoples:

Daniel 3:1
King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold, sixty cubits high and six cubits wide

Notice the “sixes” in this verse?  This is symbolic of the number of the beast in the End Times, which is 666 (Revelation 13:18), and this statue in Daniel 3 is the foreshadow to the End Times statute which will be made for all the Earth’s inhabitants to worship (Revelation 13:12,13)

Daniel 3:3
So the satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates and all the other provincial officials assembled for the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up, and they stood before it.

The then world’s governors joined in the spiritual act of worshiping this statute set up by King Nebuchadnezzar … government and religion joined at the hip … which is also a picture of the the One World Government and One World Religion of the End Time, being joined together (Revelation 13:7 & 12).

 Daniel 3:4
Then the herald loudly proclaimed, “Nations and peoples of every language, this is what you are commanded to do: 5As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace. 7Therefore, as soon as they heard the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp and all kinds of music, all the nations and peoples of every language fell down and worshiped the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.”

Even as all the people’s were commanded to worship Nebuchadnezzar’s statute in the days of Daniel, so all the people’s of the world will be commanded to bow and worship the statute of the anti-christ in the End Times (Revelation 13:15).

The Book of Daniel is teaching us that even as this great world power of Daniel’s time – Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon – was lord over the people’s of the earth, and commanded forced worship of the statute of the man in power at that time, so it shall be again in the End.

The ruler in the End … anti-christ … will demand worship from all the inhabitants of the Earth and will kill those who refuse!

Daniel 3:12
But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon—Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego—who pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Sadly, just because one calls ones-self a Christian … or just because an organization calls itself a church … it does not mean that such a person … or organization … is a true follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.  And even as just a FEW Jews in Daniel’s time refused to bow down to worship Nebuchadnezzar’s image, so there will be only a few on the Earth in the End who will refuse to bow the knee to the anti-christ’s statue (Luke 18:8).  Yet, people who are afraid of persecution, people who are afraid of starving, or of being killed for believing and confessing that the Lord Jesus Christ alone is God, will ultimately pay with their lives in the very end … they will pay by suffering for eternity in the eternal Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:15).

Please dear reader, if you are not preparing your heart and mind TODAY for the End Time persecution which will happen in one of our tomorrow’s, then you probably will not be ready.

Study and obey the Bible TODAY, while we have many translations and the freedom to study and believe, and pray daily for God’s grace and power to over-come today’s temptations and lusts because when real persecution starts, the temptation to give in to the world’s demands will be greater than today’s temptations!

Remember that even as Jesus Christ, the True Lord and Savior of men, is currently preparing His Faithful Church for the End Times and for His Return, so the devil is also currently preparing his false whore church for anti-christ’s appearing!

So please get yourselves ready, Christians! Read your Bibles daily, pray and worship the Biblical Jesus Christ daily, and keep yourselves from sinful habits that want to weigh you down and make you unprepared for Christ’s Return!

Microchip wristband becomes a theme park essential

.

At Precision Dynamics, what started out as simple hospital ID product has become a high-tech admission pass, a cashless debit card, a hotel room key and a way to reunite lost children with parents.

By Hugo Martín
May 2, 2009In a nondescript manufacturing plant on a quiet San Fernando cul-de-sac, a khaki-green machine the size of a buffet table sucks in bright pink ribbon and spits out one of the hottest features in theme parks.

Here, Precision Dynamics Corp., a company that began making plastic hospital wristbands out of a Burbank garage more than 50 years ago, has become the nation’s top producer of a new microchip-enhanced wristband for amusement parks, concerts, resorts and gyms.

…. The idea of using radio frequency identification, or RFID, technology in wristbands came to Mosher about 10 years ago when he learned that microchips were being implanted in dogs and cats to identify them in shelters and veterinary clinics. A short time later, company Vice President Robin Barber moved ahead with the idea after meeting with managers from Great Wolf Resorts, who wanted to let guests buy food and drinks at the water parks without carrying a wallet or cash.

The result was a patented wristband containing a tiny antenna and a microchip only slightly bigger than a postage stamp.

Each microchip is programmed with a unique 16-character code. A separate device known as a reader emits a low-power radio wave that activates the chip to collect the information and upload it into a computer. The reader must come within a few inches of the wristband to connect to the chip. Thus the wristband acts as a key to access a computerized debit account or unlock an electronic hotel room or a clothes locker.

The microchip wristbands now account for about $3 million in annual sales for Precision Dynamics, representing only a fraction of the company’s more than $100 million in annual sales, according to company executives. The bulk of the company’s business comes from the sales of wristbands that employ simpler bar-code technology to identify hospital patients, among other uses, and plain plastic wristbands with colors that tell security officers at theme parks and concerts who has paid for admission.

At theme parks, parents can use a kiosk to upload amounts that their children can spend, using the wristbands to buy food or play video games at the park. The microchips are coded so that the wristbands can be used only on a specific day. Once a hotel guest or theme park visitor departs, the wristbands becomes obsolete.

Because cashless spending is more convenient, industry reports suggest that visitors who use the wristbands spend as much as 25% more at resorts and parks.

“Our guests appreciate the convenience of it all,” said Jennifer Beranek, a spokeswoman for Great Wolf Resorts. Precision Dynamics wristbands are used at seven of its 12 water parks nationwide.

But price remains a barrier for the technology. Simple wristbands that use bar-code technology, for example, sell for as little as 14 cents each; the RFID wristbands sell for about $1 each. An RFID reader sells for about $450, roughly twice the cost of a bar-code reader.

Perhaps the biggest hurdles facing the widespread use of the microchip wristbands are the added costs and the persistent fear that personal information could fall into the wrong hands.

Katherine Albrecht, a personal privacy advocate and a leading critic of RFID technology, has called the microchips used in such wristbands “spy chips” because she fears they will be used to track people’s movements. But Precision Dynamics notes that the wristbands cannot be read unless they come within inches of a reader.

Mark Roberti, editor of the RFID Journal, an online and print periodical on the technology, said such fears are unfounded because the wristbands typically hold no personal information. Once the world’s business leaders realize the wristbands are safe and effective, he believes, the technology will be widely used.

“Businesspeople have a bit of a herd mentality,” he said. “This technology is very convenient, and it will continue to take off.”

Paul Chang, IBM Corp.’s business strategy leader for emerging technology, agreed, saying RFID technology is already in wide use in Europe and Asia. But he said the U.S. is still playing catch-up. He noted that tickets issued at the Beijing Olympics were embedded with an RFID chip to stifle counterfeiters.

“Other parts of the world have already adopted this technology,” he said.

Barber, Precision Dynamics’ vice president, believes the future of the wristbands is in healthcare. The microchips can be programmed to hold a patient’s blood type, medical history, drug allergy information and other data to reduce mistakes and confusion.

Unfortunately, too many hospitals today employ a variety of computer systems, many of which cannot communicate with one another, he said.

That, however, is not a problem at theme parks, he said. “The systems at theme parks are much simpler.”

Does the above story foretell the coming of a cashless society?
Is it setting the world up for such?
Is it setting the world up to receive the “mark of the beast” predicted in Revelation 13?

Are these RFID chips a sign that the “End of this Age” is near?

.

Revelation 13 –

13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. 15 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 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.

.

Remember, the present day Church gets to see the ‘beginning’ of these things predicted.  We get to see the beginning of the birth pains.  We will not be around when Revelation 13 is taking place.  Because the WRATH of God started in Chapter 6 of Revelation, and the Church is exempt from WRATH …. we have passed from wrath and death, into forgiveness, righteousness and life.  Praise the Lord!  {Romans 5:9, 1 Thess 1:10 & 5:9}
