THE FUTURE and the MARK OF THE BEAST

 

 

 

Wouldn’t it be great to have a clear picture of the Future; to know that our grandchildren will be living in a beautiful world; to know that technology is going to save us, and not destroy us? Some “experts” do indeed paint a rosy picture of what is ahead – that is, after we get over the present bumps on the road.

But the “experts” predicting doom seem to be out- numbering the optimistic forecasters. Well, we ordinary folk can see many dangers, and we are constantly alarmed. And we don’t have to look far to pin- point potential doom.

We see the ECONOMY of the world in trouble; the financial systems of many nations on the brink of the abyss. We wonder how long it will be before we are pushed over the cliff into a hellish underworld where nothing seems to make any sense. We’re worried about the weather extremes; the GEO-PHYSICAL TURMOIL; the super-cyclones (like Hurricane Sandy on the US East Coast), the super-tornados, super-bugs and bacteria. We are seeing enormous earth- quakes and devastating tsunamis (as in Japan in 2011), the swarming floods (as in Pakistan in 2010), and the belching volcanoes in many places. Then there are the threats of asteroids, and massive sun flares.

There are also the perishing droughts. And many of the disasters these days are reported as unprecedented – the worst on record.

We see SOCIAL UPHEAVALS around the world producing fear, as riots and protests tear our social fabric apart. TERRORISM and VIOLENCE on the streets leave many of us wondering if the ultimate outcome will be total anarchy. Not least, we see the increase of pervasive intelligence, and the death of privacy.

We read headlines declaring that “Big Brother is Watching YOU,” and we are warned that every communication we make online, or by phone or mobile, is open to surveillance, and that all our movements are traceable.

  We have become aware of MICRO-BIOCHIPS already being implanted into selected groups of people, and of the scheme to “chip” every living person in the world. And when we read that in the US, there is, embedded in the new HealthCare bill, the requirement that every person must receive an implanted RFID (a Radio Frequency Identification Device) in their hand, we are inclined to suspect that the world is heading for the grim totalitarian world George Orwell wrote about in his novel, “1984”

It’s very unsettling also to witness the enormous upheavals in the MIDDLE EAST — events that bring threats to world peace, to energy supplies, and to the way of life we have valued for a long time. Perhaps the most troubling of all is the danger of NUCLEAR DISASTERS, by accident or by design.

The knowledge that a dozen nations have enough nuclear-headed missiles, capable of throwing nations back into the stone age, or, as one analyst says, “capable of plunging the world back into a pre- creation cosmic blob,” is enough to damp- en anyone’s confidence in the future. We cannot deny that there are potential threats to life on earth. But we may try to divorce ourselves from such fears and threats, and concentrate on our visions and hopes of a much brighter future, so that we can enjoy what we can, while we can. And I am afraid that many people resort to the proverbial ostrich trick – he buries his head underground and imagines there is no danger because he sees none. So what’s ahead for this world?

Does it have much of a future? What do the diviners say?

Well, predictions come and go. Many forecasts are so vague that you wouldn’t know if they were ever fulfilled. Many specific predictions have failed. Date-setters are regularly left red faced. Nostradamus has significantly failed, as have expectations concerning the Mayan calendar’s “end of the world in December 2012.” Many horrific events which should have occurred by now are still pending, and soothsayers are busy trying to explain what went wrong. So it is easy to be put off by fanatics and failed future- tellers, and to respond by saying, “Nobody knows!” But when we see enormous crises happening and building up to what could be an alarming climax, we are left wondering, “What’s the world coming to?”

THERE IS ONE BOOK, however, that has prophesied about future events for thousands of years. Many of its specific prophecies have been fulfilled in amazing detail, while scores more, concerning the end of the age, are now on line for fulfilment. That Book of Prophecy is THE BIBLE – the Word of God. It’s the Word of the Heavenly Master, the Ruler of the Heavens and the Earth. The Bible was not written as a book of astrology; it is primarily “history” - HIS STORY – man’s history, from beginning to end.

Moreover, it is the MESSIAH’S STORY!

 

WHAT’S AHEAD ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE?

The Bible speaks a lot about “the time of the end.” Look at this passage …

 “There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and upon earth despair among nations, with perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men's hearts will faint from terror, being apprehensive of what is coming upon the world; for the very powers of the heavens will be shaken.” (Luke 21:25-26)

There is a lot of despair and apprehension everywhere - worldwide - at the present time, but much more is to come, for that prophecy, spoken by the Messiah, Jesus Christ, is concerning the period known as the Great Tribulation.

Of that time the Lord Jesus forewarned:

“There will be great tribulation (trials and suffering), such as has never occurred since the beginning of the world until now; and there will be nothing like it again. And if those days were not shortened, no-one would survive; but for the sake of the elect (believers), those days will be shortened – (limited).” (Matthew 24:21-22)

The details of this period are given in the Bible. The Tribulation will last for 7 lunar years – 2520 days. The first 3½ years will bring great disasters, including world war, famine, starvation, widespread persecution, an asteroid or comet bombardment of the earth, the destruction of trees and vegetation, the poisoning of the rivers and water sources, and excruciating plagues.

THE WORLD WAR

Prophecies in the Bible, in the books of Daniel, Ezekiel, Joel, Zechariah and the Revelation, give details of this global war, and they name many of the nations involved. The war will begin when all nations come against Israel; it will develop into a worldwide holocaust, and will end in the destruction of a quarter of the world’s population.

JERUSALEM THE EPICENTRE OF WORLD WAR 3

A careful study of current events, particularly in the Middle East, gives us some idea of the enormous preparations going on for the world war at the present time. And knowing that there have been calls by “world planners” to eliminate our “excessive population,” the present build-up is indeed alarming. Following the world war, “the victor,” a very deceptive man, will rise to power. The Bible refers to him as the Man of Sin, the Beast, and the Antichrist. From the mid- point of the Tribulation, he will become the “world ruler” – the President of a One-world Political- Economic-Religious System that will control all nations. His 3½-year reign will be the most ruthless regime that has ever existed. It will be far worse than in George Orwell’s book, 1984, published in 1949. During this period, monstrous disasters will afflict people with loath- some ulcers. The seas and the rivers will become like blood, and the sun will scorch the earth. But worse than these terrors, the brutal Antichrist dictator- ship worldwide which will require every person on earth to receive a mark …

 

THE MARK OF THE BEAST 

The Beast (Antichrist), has an accomplice, an executive who is referred to as the False Prophet. He carries out the evil plans of the Beast.

The prophecy is clear:

“Because of the signs he (the False Prophet) was given power to do on behalf of the Beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image to the Beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He (the False Prophet) was given power to give breath to the image of the Beast (Antichrist), so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image of the Beast to be killed. And He compels all, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands, or on their foreheads, so that no one should 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 ... and his number is 666.” (Revelation 13:14-18)

This “mark” will be mandatory during the reign of the Beast - in the second half of the Tribulation. Without the mark, a person will be considered an enemy of the state. Not only will he not be able to buy food or petrol, or pay a bus fare, he could end up in prison, where, if he still refuses the mark, he will be added to the line-up for the guillotine. Yes my reader, it will be that serious!

Now just consider our present technology. It’s not only the surveillance cams that have been installed in malls and along the traffic highways; it’s not only the GPS – Global Positioning Systems that know exactly where our car is at any time; it is the build-up of stored information in data banks, and the official scrutiny of your internet communications and mobile conversations – the details of your life that can be red like an open book. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device) biochips are already available and are increasingly being introduced to various sections of society such as prisoners, Alzheimer’s patients  who suffer memory loss, and for millionaires’ children who could be in danger of being kidnapped for ransom. And there is also our developing monetary system whereby we use a number and digital means of identification, to carry out our every financial transaction. Identification methods includes finger prints, palm scans, eye scans, and facial recognition.

    

Now paper and plastic money are steadily being eliminated. The digital age has come; electronic money has come – and it can be scary! Advanced technology will soon control most of our lives. FACIAL SCAN - EYE SCAN - SCANNING THE MARK Does this give you some idea of how the Antichrist system will be able to track and control – and eliminate anyone who resists the system?

THE END OF THE TRIBULATION

The seven years end with a final war which is called the Battle of Armageddon.

 

Much of the world will have been wiped out by this time, but here the remnant armies of the world gather together in Antichrist’s last stand against Almighty God. The result of this battle is foretold in Revelation 19. “I saw heaven opened, and then a white horse appeared, and He (the Messiah) who sat upon it was called Faithful and True; and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes were like blazing fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written upon Him which no one knew except He Himself. 9 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood; and the name by which He was called was …

THE WORD OF GOD.

 “Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies, assembled to make war against the Rider on the horse, and against His army. But the Beast was seized, and with him the False Prophet who had per- formed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the Beast and those who worshipped his image. “These two were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulphur. The rest were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the Rider on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.” (Revelation 19:11-13, 19-21)

So that is the end of Satan’s evil reign along with the Beast. The Messiah will then establish the Kingdom of God on earth – a reign of righteousness. So friend, that’s a very brief outline of the main events that are ahead. But now there are seven very relevant questions that we should ask, and that require an answer.

1. WHAT SIGNS WILL INDICATE THE TRIBULATION IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN?

There will be three main events that signal the Tribulation is about to begin.

 

 1. THE RAPTURE. (The Catching Up). This will be the sudden disappearance of a great number of people around the world.

All true believers in Jesus Christ, Y’shua the Messiah, will be caught up to meet the Lord. (Y’shua is the original Hebrew Name of Jesus).

The prophecy explains this event.

 “For the Master Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. Then the dead in Christ - those who died with faith in the Messiah - shall rise first. Then we, the living believers who remain, will simultaneously be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Master in the air. And so we will be with the Master for ever.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

THE RAPTURE

To a non-believer this prophecy may seem ridiculous and impossible, but true followers of the Messiah firmly believe that with God, all things are possible, and that the promise is sure. It will take place, literally, just as the Scripture says! The day of the Rapture is drawing near!

 

2. THE APPEARANCE OF THE ANTICHRIST on earth. A man of great ability and charm will arise shortly after the Rapture. He will be acclaimed as a man of peace and power. But his program will be one of self-exultation and deception. His goal will be to receive worship from the whole world, as the God of Gods. “Let no one deceive you in any way, for that Day will not come unless the apostasy, (the predict- ed falling away from the faith), comes first, and the Man of Lawlessness (the Man of Sin) is revealed, ‘the son of destruction’ who opposes and exalts himself above everything that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming that he himself is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)

 

3. A PEACE TREATY involving many nations will be arbitrated by the  Antichrist.

 

The treaty will be for a  period of seven years. It will offer peace, but it will lay a basis for this Man of Sin to take control of the Middle East, and ultimately the whole world. “And he (the Antichrist) will confirm a covenant - a treaty - with the many for one ‘week’ (that is, a week of years - ‘seven years’), but in the middle of that week he will put an end to sacrifice and offering; and on the pinnacle of the Temple, he will set up an abomination that causes desolation), until the complete end that is decreed is poured out on the one who makes the desolation.” (Daniel 9:27)

 

2. HOW CAN WE ESCAPE THE MARK OF THE BEAST?

Are we doomed to endure the brutal regime of Satan’s empowered Antichrist? Is there any way we can escape that all-pervading digital reign of terror? Yes there is! That’s why this booklet has been written. The most obvious, and the preferred way of escape, is to be included in the Rapture – to be included in “the Redeemed of the Lord” – that is, to be counted amongst the worldwide Body of believers, the followers of God’s Anointed – Y’shua the Messiah. He is the Heavenly Master, and He is the Saviour that each one of us needs. How to be included in the Redeemed – the Saved? Simply put your faith, your trust in the Lord Jesus and receive Him as your personal Saviour.

 3. WHY DO YOU NEED THE SAVIOUR?

Simply, because you are in very great danger and need to be saved!

Say! If you were way out at sea and your boat sank, and you were left clinging to a life- buoy; would you refuse help from a ship that came along side to rescue you?

 

Would you say, “Why do I need you to save me?

I can make my way slowly back to the land. Thanks, but no thanks!”? No! You would be more than glad to be saved from the freezing ocean. And you would not hesitate to trust your kind rescuers.

Now you might reply, “But I’m not in any great danger right now!” OK. But the fact is that every person alive is in danger. On one hand, our lives could be terminated any day, even today, by accidents or health. On the other hand, the Antichrist Tribulation regime is not far off. It’s already in the making. It’s just a matter of time before it becomes the new reality! You may say, “But I’m not worried about dying. It’s just like sleeping forever.” My friend, don’t bet your soul on that! The Scriptures are very straight- forward on what is ahead; and on what the eternal destiny for believers and for unbelievers will be.

“It is appointed for all men to die once, and after that the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27)

“For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God.” (Romans 14:10)

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

The wages of sin is death ...” (Romans 6:23).

But this verse goes on to say … “the free gift of God is eternal life in the Messiah, Jesus our Master.”

  Now my friend, I want to take you through a number of very important Scriptures to help you understand the truth about salvation – about how to be saved. I don’t want to give you my ideas, or the philosophy of any teacher. I want you to see what God says in His Holy Word, the Bible.

God offers each one of us, His free gift of eternal life. This is not a reward for doing your best. It is a free gift because God loves you and wants to save, both from the Tribulation, and from a hopeless, eternal destiny. From hell! Yes my friend there is a Hell. But you don’t have to go there!

“The LORD is not slow concerning His promise, as some understand slowness, but is patient toward you, not wanting anyone to perish, but for everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)

God’s Anointed One – the Saviour – is Y’shua the Messiah, Jesus Christ. Y’shua is the eternal One, who became incarnate - He took on the form of man. At His birth, an angel of the Lord appeared to shepherds near Bethlehem saying:

"Do not be afraid! I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people; for today in the town of David, a Saviour has been born to you. He is the Messiah, the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11)

And when Jesus began His ministry at the age of 30, the great prophet, John the Baptist, saw Jesus coming to him, and said, “Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" (John 1:29).

 Speaking by the power of God’s Holy Spirit, John recognised that Y’shua, Jesus, was indeed the Saviour who had come into the world to give His life as a sacrifice for the sins of the world.

 

4. ARE THERE NOT MANY SAVIOURS?

No! After Christ was crucified and was resurrected to life again, the apostle Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, declared:

“There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has  been given among men, by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)

We can be saved, not in the name of Peter, or Mary, or any religious leader other than Jesus who is God manifest in flesh.

For in this Man – the Son of God/Son of Man – there is salvation available for every one of us. "Of Him (Y'shua) all the prophets bear witness that through His Name, everyone who believes in Him has received forgiveness of sins." (Acts 10:43)

Jesus Himself said: “For the Son of Man, (a term He applied to His humanity), has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10) “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28)

 

5. WHY IS JESUS THE ONLY SAVIOUR?

Because He is the only One who ever gave His life a ransom for others – to provide forgiveness for our sins. Others have given their lives to save their country or their friends. But they have not been able to forgive sins. But Jesus gave His life, when He was crucified on the cross, to pay the penalty of our sins, and to deliver us from the bondage of the enemy of our souls – from Satan.

“For He (God) delivered us from the power and dominion of darkness, and transferred us into the kingdom of His beloved Son (Y’shua, Jesus), in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” (Colossians 1:13-14)

“For while we were still helpless, at the right time Y’shua the Messiah died for the ungodly. Now very rarely will someone die even for a righteous man, though possibly for a good man some- one might even have the courage to die. “But God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, the Messiah died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.” (Romans 5:6-9)

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live sensible (self- controlled), upright and godly lives in this present age, awaiting and looking for the blessed hope - the glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour, Y'shua the Messiah; who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all lawlessness (all wickedness), and purify for Himself a people who are uniquely His own; people zealous to do good works.” (Titus 2:11-14)

“He who believes (has faith) in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” (John 3:36)

 

6. HOW TO RECEIVE Y’SHUA THE MESSIAH AS YOUR SAVIOUR?

“WHOEVER WILL CALL UPON THE NAME OF the LORD, (Y'SHUA), WILL BE SAVED.” (Romans 10:13) Friend, this is not complicated, but it does involve your sincere decision to recognise your need of salvation, and to receive Jesus as your personal Saviour and Sovereign Master. To receive Y’shua as Saviour, you need to truly and inwardly BELIEVE that He is the Saviour – that He died on the cross for your sins, and that He rose again from the dead – that He is the living Saviour, and that His invitation to be saved is for you personally. He does not ask you to first “clean up your life.” Rather, because you need to be changed inside, and delivered from your sinful ways, the Master asks you to simply put your faith in Him and His sacrifice on the cross for you. When you receive Him as your personal Saviour, He will then forgive your sins, cleanse your life, and make you into a new person. He simply asks for your faith – He asks you to trust in Him and give your life to Him. Then He will do the saving. To express your faith, you need to pray, and call on the Lord to save you.

 

WHEN  SHOULD YOU RECEIVE JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOUR

“Look! NOW is ‘the well-accepted time’;

NOW is ‘The Day of Salvation’.” (2 Corinthians 6:2)

Many people procrastinate – they put off their decision to some future time.

They say: “Well I’ll wait, and if I get into trouble, then I will call on the Lord to save me.” … “I’ll wait and see if the Antichrist appears and if the Tribulation begins. If it does, I will get saved then.” … “

There are a number of reasons why I can’t become a follower of the Messiah just now; like … my goals, my friends, my career, my family, and the pressures of my busy life.

So I’ll have to leave it for later!” And some will even say, “Well, I am not really religious, and I feel I am not good enough to be accepted by God right now.”

But God says: “NOW is The Day of Salvation."

 

ONE DAY IT WILL BE TOO LATE!

So come just as you are and get right with God. Come while He is calling you; come while you may! If you are ready to receive Jesus as your Saviour, the following prayer will help you to express your faith, and to enter into this transaction with the Heavenly Master.

 

DECISION PRAYER

Almighty God, Heavenly Father, I come to You just as I am. I confess I am a sinner, needing Your forgiveness and salvation.

And I believe the Scriptures I have just read. I understand that Jesus is the Saviour who died on the cross to pay the price of my salvation. I believe it is because of Your great love for me, and His sacrifice, that You have provided freely this amazing gift of salvation. I realise that I myself can do nothing to win your acceptance, and grace, but that Jesus did it all on my behalf.

So I come to You, Heavenly Father, expressing my simple faith in the Saviour, and asking You to save me today. I trust that You will, at this very moment, forgive my sin and receive me as Your child. Lord Jesus, I place my life at Your feet today. I receive You as my Saviour, and I want to follow You from this day on, to be Your faithful disciple all the days of my life.

Please grant me Your strength and understanding, Master, to learn and grow in Your ways, and to make me Your profitable servant. Thank You Father for taking away my burden of sin, for saving me, and for giving me new life from this moment on. Thank You Master; thank You Father, in Y’shua, Jesus’ Name. Amen.

 

If this is your prayer, sign here, and keep this page with you as a reminder of this most blessed day in your life.

 

 Signed ...…………………………… date …….

 

Dear friend, if this has been your prayer today, I invite you to write to us to tell of your decision today. And ask us to send you a copy of our book,

 

“THE WAY – Lessons for New Believers.”

It will help you get established in your new life. Now the final question …

 

7. HOW TO ESCAPE THE MARK IF YOU ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE RAPTURE?

IF you are left behind after the true believers have gone to be with their Master in the Father’s House, you will be facing seven horrendous years. You may perish in any one of the multiple disasters. And if you are not “in Christ” - if you have still not received the Lord Jesus as your Saviour - even if you survive the seven years of “hell upon earth,” you will remain doomed to suffer the consequences of your rejection of God’s provision for your salvation.

  Without Y’shua, Jesus as your Saviour, there is simply no way of escape. In the first half of the Tribulation, the Spirit of God will be poured out on the earth, and as a result, many will call on the Lord and be saved. Indeed, a great number of people will turn to Y’shua the Messiah, including 144,000 Jews who will be Divinely-protected and become powerful witnesses. (Revelation 7:3-8) Their message will reach to the ends of the world. The great saved multitude are seen standing before the Throne of God in Revelation 7…

“I looked, and saw a great multitude, which no one could count, gathered out of all nations and tribes, peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes, and with palm branches in their hands; and they were crying out with a loud voice:

‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb’ … These are the ones who have come out of the Great Tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:9-10, 14)

Some of these new believers will escape the Mark of the Beast by hiding in remote places. Many others will be preserved by Divine miracles performed on their behalf. But the majority of these followers of Yeshua may be martyred by the Antichrist’s regime during the second half of the Tribulation. And their martyrdom will actually be an escape from torture and the 666 Mark. For once their spirit leaves their bodies, satanic forces will have no power over them.

They will be delivered and be rewarded before the glorious Throne of their Saviour in Heaven. So there will be many people saved in the first half of the Tribulation. But my friend, if you are one of the people who today, say, “Oh, if I miss the Rapture, I’ll get saved in the Tribulation,” I ask, “What makes you so confident that if you neglect the salvation of your soul now, when conditions are bad enough, that you will readily accept Christ as your Saviour in the Tribulation when conditions are worse than worst, and when you know there will be a real possibility of being tortured and losing your head? What makes you think that you will not surrender to the Beast and receive his Mark ?

During that time, God will send angelic messengers to make it clear to those who dwell on the earth:

'If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or upon his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the fury of God.” (Revelation 14:9-10)

The cup of God’s wrath is poured out during the Tribulation. That’s terrible, but far worse is the wrath of the Lake of Fire, for there … “the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day and night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:11)

My dear reader, the Scriptures make it very clear – the Tribulation is the period when the wrath of Almighty God falls on a rebellious and ungodly world. It is written:

“The kings of the earth, the great men, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and free man hid them- selves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and to the rocks, 'Fall on us and hide us from the Presence of Him (the Almighty) who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of His wrath has come; and who is able to stand (before it)?'" (Revelation 6:15-17)

At the same time, it will be a period when Satan’s wrath will target everyone who does not give him their allegiance and worship, by receiving his mark. (Revelation 13:14-18).

It is far better to escape the wrath of God than to surrender to the wrath of Satan. To surrender to the Beast and Satan means no escape – it means eternal doom.

To surrender to God, who so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son to suffer for our sins, means eternal life in the Presence of the Saviour and the Redeemed of the Lord. It means escape from eternal doom, even though you may lose your head. But ...

“How shall we escape if we neglect or ignore such a great salvation?” (Hebrews 2:3)

The only alternative to Heaven is Hell, and the only alternative to Hell is Heaven! My reader, all this is not about getting you to join a religion, a cult, or a particular church. It’s all about securing your eternal salvation; it’s about your relation- ship to God, your Creator. If you have not yet received Jesus as your Saviour; if you have not yet received His gift of eternal life, please go back to the Decision Prayer

My friend, I long to greet you in the Heavenly City. May God richly bless you today!

A FEW CLOSING COMMENTS Friends, the end of this age is closing in on us. Global preparations for the regime of the Beast are moving fast.

Various aspects of the agenda for global governance and its progress can be gleaned from reports in factual magazines, books and media programs, as well as the Internet. But the details can be very disturbing. There’s a lot of information available out there about the Cashless Society 24 that is gradually enmeshing us all in a worldwide monetary system. Before too long there will be “no cash” signs displayed in shops.

Already much of our buying and selling is carried out online – via the computer, telephone, or even from a mobile phone. Payment is made using electronic cards; our “money” is mostly just digits.

The new monetary system utilizes barcodes (Universal Product Codes) - electronically-read numbers built on a 666 framework. And just as every product is being given a number, the universal plan is to give every person a unique number that will be with them from birth to death.

Electronic technology is not inherently evil. Rather, much of it is being used for good as it is a tremendous instrument for efficient and instantaneous transactions, and to access ‘unlimited’ information with ease. It’s when it is controlled by an evil man or system that it becomes very dangerous.

Our present systems do not yet constitute the mark of the beast, but they are certainly preparing the way for the controlling database of the coming world dictator. In these crucial times we each one need to be aware of the “schemes of the devil,” to warn of the horrors that are ahead for our present godless, unbelieving generation, and also to point our contacts to the One who can save all who will call on His Name.

MAY Y’SHUA BE WITH YOU!
