THE MARK OF THE BEAST*

The Mark of the Beast will eventually be used to buy & sell as Revelation 13:16-18 says:
“And he causes All, both small and great, Rich and
poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
The world has changed dramatically in only one generation,
and seems to have grown smaller with the increased speed of transport and communications. We have become more closely linked through the internet, mobile phones, TV, jet airplanes and multi lane highways, but have you wondered if we might have become more
controlled as well? In reality there is less privacy in our lives as satellites, security cameras and surveillance devices observe our every move and more. Is this for our own security, or is it a step towards a government which will know everything about
its subjects, and hence, have control over them?
MANY HAVE ALREADY BEEN FULFILLED
The prophetic writings of a simple ﬁsherman who
lived 2,000 years ago predict how this government will gain control. This man, John, was one of Jesus’ twelve disciples, and he received many amazing predictions concerning the ﬁnal days of this Earth, many of which have already begun to be fulﬁlled.
His amazing predictions arerecorded in the Bible along with hundreds of other prophecies about the future. Many have already been fulﬁlled, but one of the most earth shaking ever is still waiting to take place. John predicted a global economic system that
would eliminate cash, and it’s already started! Think of how much plastic people already carry around with them these days. Are we on the verge of a new era, one in which cash of any form will be eliminated? According to this prediction, we are.
If someone wanted to control the world, what better way than by instituting a universal monetary system where everyone would be linked to a central computer?
only way this would be possible would be by implementing an idea that has beenin use for some time, though only on a small scale: If you were to have a computer chip inserted under your skin, similar to the chips used in smart cards today, not only would your
identity be secured, but you would also be protected from it being stolen or lost. Once the chip has been implanted, a simple bar code reader could read the information on it and ... voilà! You could make ﬁnancial transactions just like using a credit
or debit card.
Believe it or not, the hi-tech means for fulﬁlling this futuristic vision is available today!
To obtain a passport for your dog to travel
in Europe, you need to have a chip with all the dog’s vital information implanted in it. The governments of several countries are already pursuing plans to eliminate cash and checks, while other countries are testing various methods of doing business
without currency. Sounds convenient, doesn’t it? But is it really? If this were to happen, whoever is in charge would have almost complete knowledge of what you do and when you do it, and that means control. The worst part is that people will be so allured
by the “convenience” that they won’t realize what they are getting into. A technological breakthrough?
John further predicts that the man who will control this system, referred to as the
Antichrist, will be possessed by Satan.
The dragon [Devil] gave him [the Anti-Christ] his power and his throne and great authority (Revelation 13:2). He will end up “ruling” the world, controlling
it by forcing everyone to accept a mark: He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or on their foreheads: and that no one may buy or sell except one that has the mark or the name of [the Antichrist]
or the number of his name (Revelation 13:16-17). In order to make it all acceptable, this program will be disguised as atechnological breakthrough for the beneﬁt of everyone.
coming world leader will also demand the world’s worship; not only because he has a severe ego problem, but also be-cause he will be possessed by the Devil. You see, this is what Satan is really after when he causes his puppet, the Antichrist,
to set up the one world credit system: To force the people of the world to bow down and worship him. This sounds a little far-fetched, but the Bible warns: If anyoneworships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead, or on his hand, the
same shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God. (Revelation 14:9-10).
“Now come on,” you might say, “God would not give such a severe punishment for simply accepting
an identification and credit mark that allows you to buy your groceries, would He?” Well, here’s the is-sue: voluntarily receiving the mark will primarily be a spiritual decision to worship the demonic Antichrist and accept his power over you,
so it is a serious decision.
If you believe what you have read here...These will be very difﬁcult times for those who don’t accept the mark, because they will get persecuted by the
Antichrist’s government. But no worries, because God will intervene when Jesus Christ returns to rescue His people and defeat the forces of evil. In the words of John, Those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark
on their foreheads or on their hands … lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years (Revelation 20:4).
Smooth ending, isn’t it? So when you see a world government arise
and its leader demanding your allegiance, and even your worship, don’t fall for it. No matter what they try to entice you with, or however they threaten you to take their “mark,” give worship to the one true God, your Creator, Who loves and
cares for you. Only He can and will see you through the days ahead if you putyour trust in Him
Some of the above may astonish you, but it’s God’s truth as revealed in the Bible.
Countless Biblical prophecies have already been accurately and speciﬁcally fulﬁlled, so you can be sure that these predictions of the future will be as well!
You can prepare for the exciting days ahead
by receiving Jesus into your heart. Simply pray:
"Dear Jesus, please come into my heart and forgive me my sins, and give me eternal life, in Jesus
precious name. Please fill me up with your Holy Spirit, so that I can understand your Word. Help me to live for you, and others. Amen."
If you believe what you have read here, and refuse
to accept the mark, you will become part of the movement to undermine the Devil’s forces in the world today, and will have joined the battle for truth and justice.
Don’t be deceived, be prepared.

MARK OF THE BEAST
Chapter 40 "OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT"by S.N.Strutt © Oct 2014 (Reprinted 08/05/17)
During the last half of the reign of the Antichrist, the three-and-a-half-year period known as the Great Tribulation, those who refuse to worship him or accept his mark, or number, will not be able to
buy or sell. We who worship God will be persecuted, but our faith in God will save us. At the end of this period, Jesus will come back to rescue us, destroy the Antichrist's worldwide economic, political and religious system, and set up His own kingdom here
The technology needed to institute the mark of the Beast-technology unheard of only a few years ago-is rapidly developing. Consider the following:
At a time when conspiracy theories abound, perhaps no one is more outspoken than former TV sports commentator and spokesman for the British Green Party, David Icke, who has written 10 books supporting
the same basic premise: The same few people, organizations and secret societies are taking over the world-and us. This Elite, according to Icke, creates the news and then pipes it to us. They engineer events and set the trends-wars, revolutions, terrorist
attacks, assassinations, political and economic upheavals, international drug trafficking-then form our perception of those things through the media that they also control. They are masters of collective and individual mind control, and their aim is to master
In an interview with the Independent newspaper of South Africa Icke stated, "The secret government of the world is manipulating the human mind to accept a centralized global tyranny, as we speak. This
tyranny is called the New World Order, and unless we wake up it will manifest as a world government; a world central bank, currency and army and a microchipped population linked to a global computer."
And we'd better wake up quick, because it's happening!
Already pets are being microchipped, and human applications are either being discussed or are in the experimental
stage-from microchipping preschoolers to thwart kidnappings and make it possible to track lost children, to microchipping parolees and inmates in "jail at home" programs.
Ultimately, Icke says, the plan includes
the microchipping of all babies at birth. "The technology already exists, and all that remains is to persuade the public to accept it. One way this will be done is to highlight missing children stories, including the abduction of babies from maternity wards."
On the financial front, coins and banknotes are being phased out in favor of credit and smart cards. "Today if you go into a shop to buy anything and your credit card is refused by the computer, you can pay with cash," Icke
explains. "What happens when there is no cash? If the computer refuses your card or microchip, you have no means to buy anything. We will then be robots in every sense of the word, an extension of a computer program."
Proponents of microchipping humans say there are other selling points: Passports could be done away with, and people could carry their medical records with them wherever they go, in case of accident. In the UK, people are already being microchipped
with their medical records. "Even more frightening," Icke says, "is that the microchip can be used to modify [human] behavior."
Connecting Brain to Computer
According to an article in The Sunday Times (London, England) the prospect of extending human intelligence by means of electronic implants in the brain has come two steps closer. Scientists have not only grown living nerves cells of a rat-cells that
closely resemble their counterpart in humans-on a silicon chip, but have also transmitted electrical impulses along the nerves to trigger sensors within the chip.
"The findings are being hailed as a crucial first
step in developing direct connections between computers and the brain. This will lead to silicon-based enhancements for the body, ranging from memory devices inside the head to 'bionic' eyes that allow blind people to see," states the Sunday Times article.
When asked about the latest research, Colin Humphreys, a professor at Cambridge University, said it raised the frightening prospect of one day being able to control people's minds through silicon chip implants.
Chip Implants to Track Workers
"Big Brother could soon be watching from the inside," another Sunday Times article warns. "Several international companies
are consulting scientists on ways of developing microchip implants for their workers to measure their timekeeping and track their whereabouts.
"The technology, which has been proven on pets and human volunteers,
would enable firms to track staff all around a building or complex. The data could enable them to draw up estimates of workers' efficiency and productivity.
"The technology is likely to have a strong appeal to companies
with high labor costs, for which small increases in staff productivity can have a big impact on profits. It is also relatively cheap-just a few [British] pounds for each person, according to Professor Kevin Warwick of Reading University.
"For a business the potential is obvious," the article quotes Warwick. "You can tell when people clock into work and when they leave the building. You would know at all times exactly where they were and who they were with."
Verse: "He [the False Prophet, top aide to the Antichrist, also known as the Beast] causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their
foreheads, 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" (Revelation 13:16-17).
As you will read below there are many compelling
reasons for getting implants and eventually the “Mark of the Beast”* so many compelling advantages or so it would seem, but
what will be the ultimate price?
It sounds like people could possibly get extra benefits & powers if they get the chip in their foreheads rather than their right hand. These technologies are being developed
right now, and they will be enthusiastically adopted by a large segment of the general public. So are you ready for this brave new world? Will you ever let them put a chip in your head or in your right hand? Will you
refuse to accept the coming mark of the Beast?
A tiny computer chip surgically embedded in your brain could give you superpowers. It sounds crazy, but scientists already use these devices to restore sight
for some blind people and hearing for the deaf.
In the future
these implants, also known as neuro-prosthetics, will be able to do much more — sometimes with the help of super-sensitive eye or ear
implants. By using electronic signals to stimulate parts of the brain, these chips can now deliver visual and auditory signals and restore connections that have been severed by trauma. Once our understanding of the brain has improved, researchers
think it will be possible to deliver more data to the mind.
It’s currently risky to drill into the skull and put a small electronic device in there, but the technology is rapidly advancing. Soon,
things we consider superpowers will be readily available to anyone who wants them — and can afford it.

Here are some of the things that brain implants will make
1. Hear a conversation from across a room, or in a crowded club.
Already, cochlear implants can restore hearing for some people, and even allow
them to hear for the first time. With the help of specialized hardware, they could tune out what you don’t want to hear, or use sensitive equipment to pick up far-off soundwaves.
2. Give you the ability
to see in the dark.
FDA-approved retinal implants can restore the ability to see motion and shapes for people blinded by a certain genetic condition already. As understanding of the ocular nerve improves,
better versions of these implants could give you the night vision of a cat.
3. Give you sight that can zoom in on things that are far away.
have already developed contacts that can zoom. But a retinal prosthetic
that could do the same thing should make it possible to do this all the time.
4. Make you better at math and navigation.
areas of the brain can already boost people’s mathematical and navigational abilities in a lab setting. With a brain implant that did this all the time, it’d be a lot harder to pull the “I’m just not a math person” excuse anymore.
5. Allow you to download skills like in “The Matrix.”*
Researchers claim that
once we understand how practicing a skill transforms the brain over time, we might be able to use implants to cause those same transformations to occur, providing the motor memory for kung-fu skills, or whatever else you want to learn.
6. Restore damaged memories.
The military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is already experimenting with brain implants that will help soldiers suffering
from traumatic brain injuries by using electrodes to stimulate damaged tissue. In the future, this could be a valuable medical technology.
7. Cure depression and control mood.
DARPA is also working on neuroprosthetics that could cure depression and PTSD. This is similar to recent research showing how Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation might
be an extremely effective antidepressant. Future implants could regulate the brain and make sure it keeps working the way it should, providing stimulation when necessary.
8. Enhance focus and energy, like stimulants without the drugs.
Drugs like Adderall and Ritalin are well known for their alertness-boosting abilities, but also for their serious side effects.
Brain stimulation could both enhance focus and mental clarity, but without the jittery, speedy, up-all-night feelings — and the post-amphetamine crash.
9. Control machines with your mind.
It sounds crazy, but researchers have already used a neuroprosthetic sensor to control a robotic arm. As this technology is refined, that control will only become more accurate, allowing for remote control of robots, computers,
10. Search the web and translate languages.
Once these implants can transmit and receive information, it should be possible to think of a topic
— or look at a tree or painting — and send that information to the web, and have relevant results fed back into your brain. This technology is still far away, and will depend on smaller and biologically safer computer chips, as well as better brain
Once that’s possible, it’ll have even greater implications. Imagine being able to travel anywhere in the world and being able to understand what’s being said. The same technology that
transmits auditory information could potentially feed that data through a translating service and interpret it for you in real time, like your very own Babel fish.
Brain Implants Could Give People
Perfect Memories And Night Vision
This Brain Gate array is the brain implant that helps move robot arms.
Computer chips aren’t just for your laptop and phone anymore.
Doctors are implanting these technologies in our brains to restore sight to the blind and hearing to the deaf.
Soon, they could give people super senses and radically improved memory and focus.
“Brain implants today are where laser eye surgery was several decades ago,” write Gary Marcus, an NYU professor of psychology, and Christof Koch, chief scientific officer of the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle,
in a recent essay for The Wall Street Journal.
Brain implants, also called neuroprosthetics, are used to restore hearing and vision loss, but as our technology and
brain knowledge improve, the applications will become almost infinite.
They are “not risk-free and make sense only for a narrowly defined set of patients — but they are a sign of things to come,”
Marcus and Koch say.
Here’s an overview of what brain implants do and how they might be used to create super-humans.
What Brain Implants Already
The most commonly used brain implant now is a cochlear implant that helps restore hearing.
More than 300,000 people already use a brain implant called
a cochlear implant. This common neuroprosthetic replaces the malfunctioning ear to restore hearing for certain deaf people.
It captures sound with a microphone and then stimulates the auditory nerve
through electrodes, allowing the brain to approximate hearing.
This isn’t exactly like normal hearing, but it gives
a deaf person the ability to perceive sound and helps them identify speech. In this video, a deaf woman hears herself laugh for the first time after her implant is turned on:
Thousands of Parkinson’s patients use a neuroprosthetic to lessen tremors and rigid movement.
A small electrode runs from
a pacemaker-like battery pack underneath their skin (batteries need to be replaced every
two to three years) through a small hole in their skull, where it stimulates pathways in the brain that help control motion. When this electrical stimulation happens, it helps reduce, and can even eliminate, Parkinson’s symptoms, although it doesn’t
stop the disease from getting worse.
A retinal implant under development, similar to the recently approved
Second Sight one.
Last year the FDA approved a retinal implant that will restore the ability to perceive shapes and motion for people blinded by advanced retinitis pigmentosa, the late stage of a genetic condition that causes a gradual vision loss in about 1 in 4,000 people in the U.S.
The device, made by Second Sight, involves 60 electrodes that make up a “retinal prosthesis.”
A small video camera and processing unit mounted on a set of glasses transmit data wirelessly to the electrodes in the retina.
What Brain Implants Could Do In The Future
The implants above are used to restore function lost to disease, but they could be used to enhance function, too. Eventually, neuroprosthetics will
do the things of science fiction — quick learning, memory processing, language translation, night vision, and more.
Make Us Better At
Math And Navigation
Research already shows that brain stimulation from external electrodes can help people learn
In a small study that used internal electrodes
and deep brain stimulation, people were able to learn and remember routes through a city better. They even demonstrated improved spatial ability, and were better at figuring out shortcuts that could help them along the way.
‘Matrix’-Like Automatic Learning
Improvements to the technology above could recreate “The Matrix.”
In that movie, Keanu
Reeves’ character, Neo, learns kung fu by downloading “practice” from a computer. Impossible as that seems, it’s likely that when neuroscientists eventually learn how practicing a skill changes and reshapes the brain, it might be possible
to use neurocompilers to input the results of a year of training into the brain all at once.
Restoring Memories And Improving Mood
Institute for Brain Science & Connections in a mouse brain.
Already, the military is experimenting with brain implants that will help soldiers improve memories damaged by traumatic injuries.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is working on two
projects under the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) initiative, a neuroscience project announced last year by President Obama.
For the first of those two projects, Subnets, researchers are trying to use neuroprosthetics and electric currents to cure PTSD, depression, and pain.
second project, called RAM, aims to develop an implantable device that could restore memory loss and repair brain damage by using electrodes to stimulate neural tissue.
Enhancing Focus, Alertness, And Energy
Once brain functions can be restored, the next step could be to use the same mechanisms to enhance them — including giving humans better memory,
focus, mood, and alertness.
“Even now, some parents are willing to let their children take Adderall before a big exam,” Marcus and Koch point out. “The chance to make a ‘superchild’
(or at least one guaranteed to stay calm and attentive for hours on end during a big exam) will be too tempting for many.”
Controlling Robots With Our Minds
Cathy Hutchinson takes a drink by controlling a robot arm with her brain.
In 2011, a paralyzed woman named Cathy
Hutchinson picked up a bottle of coffee and took a drink. The amazing thing? She did it using a robot arm controlled by a sensor in her brain. The sensor read her neural activity and told the arm what to do.
Currently, controlling a robot in the way that Cathy Hutchinson does is “cumbersome and laborious, like steering a massive barge or an out-of-alignment car.”
Scientists have a lot more to learn
about the brain, but Marcus and Koch think that by 2100 we’ll think of a question and search the Internet for the answer — without speaking or typing a word.
Enhancing Our Senses
Every medical implant above could be turned into an enhancement implant. Current prosthetics can help a blind person regain vision — in the future implants would let someone see in the dark, or have zooming vision that
lets them read words from 150 feet away.
We are already developing contacts that
can zoom. Combined with implants, we could control them with the brain, allowing us enhance the zoom at will and eventually be able to search the Web for information on what we see.
At some point, anyone with the desire for augmented abilities and the resources to pay for them might be able to buy a mental edge.
Technological And Ethical Hurdles: Improve Technology
Drilling holes in the skull to implant electrodes is risky, difficult, and potentially damaging to extremely important areas of the brain — not to mention scary. Even the implants are dangerous. The brain doesn’t
like to sit still inside the skull, so today’s implants easily slip out of place.
Implants need to made of nontoxic materials that won’t cause our bodies to reject them as foreign, and they need to be
tiny and rechargeable (perhaps graphene will help).
The neuroprosthetics of today are comparable to cellphones of 20 years ago — when they were still “the size of shoeboxes.”
Improve Understanding Of The Brain
Human Connectome Project, Science, March 2012.
The Human Brain Connectome project hopes to get a grasp on how the brain’s neurons are connected, helping us understand thoughts
and memories on the cellular level.
More important, our understanding of the brain is still rudimentary in many ways. We may understand most of how vision works, but our understanding of memory has a long way to
“The next challenge will be to interpret the complex information from the 100 billion tiny nerve cells that make up the brain,” the authors say.
are several projects underway in the U.S. and Europe to develop a better fundamental understanding of the brain, including the Human
Connectome Project, the aforementioned BRAIN Initiative, and the Human
Get People On Board
But the real sticking point in applying these new technologies could be people themselves. Americans just aren’t
yet ready for it.
According to a recent survey,72%
of the U.S. population is not interested in a brain implant* that could improve memory or mental capacity, and 53% of people think it’ll be a change for the worse if most people wear implants that
provide them with information about the surrounding world.
That hesitation can’t stop what’s already in motion. Early adopters like “bio-hackers” — people who modify
their bodies with chips they implant themselves — are already buying RFID chips to
inject under the skin using a syringe at home and using supplements, smart drugs, and engineered brain states to improve mental abilities.*
Marcus and Koch write “the real question isn’t so much whether something like this can be done
but how and when.”
HEGENESIS PROPHECY AND THE TWO SEEDS*
Once we have
understood the implications of the Seed of the Woman then we will focus on how Satan has been attempting to destroy the image of God throughout history (as described in the Bible and confirmed by extra-biblical evidence) and how he plans on imitating and counterfeiting
God’s redemptive work in the ultimate hybrid of all time whom the Bible calls “the Beast” (Antichrist).
Satan’s plan is already well underway and will be accomplished in part via transhumanism
and the “alien” deception. These have both been made possible through the teaching of the theory of evolution which, at its core, denies there is a God. Satan has used this denial to pave the way philosophically for the acceptance of going to the
next level of humanity and because man denies God, he believes he ought to continue evolving. The trans-humanist movement boasts that man can direct his own destiny through the rewriting of his DNA code. Transhumanists seek to make man into gods by directing
his own evolution. Rather than accepting that God originally created man in His image and man is now fallen, but (through Jesus) will be restored to that original and un-fallen image, the trans-humanist insists that man can do it himself. In fact, Trans humanist
Richard Seed audaciously declared: “We are going to become gods, period ” Man is ready to forsake the image of the Creator who created him.
Satan will use man’s desire to be his own god to deceive
him into believing the ultimate lie—that his fallen messengers are both the Creators and saviours of man. He will not do this openly but will deceive mankind through demons which are masquerading as ”aliens” who are spreading the message
that the inhabitants of the earth can evolve to be like them and obtain transcendent powers. Finally, the seed of the Serpent will come; he will be a man who will be greater than his fellows, who will understand sinister schemes and shall rise up and become
