The Mark — cashless, digital currency economies
Credit card companies see opportunity in the elimination of cash from the economy. Visa is trying to speed the demise of cash by offering restaurants cash payments for refusing to accept cash as payment. The alliance of this commercial interest with the agents of the Beast means that there will ongoing pressure to remove cash from the economy.
Private companies are also helping to facilitate the mark of the Beast in other ways. Some companies are implanting chips into the hands of its employees.
Though few in number so far, it takes little imagination to see that it is only a matter of time before larger corporations follow suit. The agents of the Beast are moving on many fronts to achieve their political and social agenda.
The Temple on the Mount
The government of Israel installed metal detectors and cameras on the Temple Mount, to monitor Muslims that go to the al-Asqa mosque for prayer. This has resulted in violent protest from the West Bank Palestinians.
The crux of the issue is that by installing those metal detectors, the Israeli government is demonstrating sovereign rights over the Temple Mount — and this is what driving the violence. The Palestinians fear that this is just another baby step towards the Jewish goal of reclaiming the mount in order to rebuild their Temple.
Revelation prophecy tells us that the Israeli government will continue to push the Palestinians out of East Jerusalem, and that ultimately, the al-Aqsa mosque will be demolished to make way for the Jewish Temple.
The Fifth Seal
Those Christians have who have founds themselves trapped in the dominion of Death and Hades have suffered. Tens of thousands suffered violence and death because of their faith. It will only get worse should Assad of Syria be overthrown by the US military and their sponsored militias. Belatedly, the US government (under Trump) is finally trying to help them.
In first months of Trump presidency, Christians account for growing share of U.S. refugee arrivals
Eyewitness To Mass Extermination Of Christians In The Middle East Tells All
Because of the massive scale of this persecution (the dominion of Death and Hades now span a quarter of the world and it is in these regions that Christians are being killed for their faith), we have argued that the Fifth Seal has been opened. Revelation 6:9-11 says:
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
We are now waiting for the opening of the Sixth Seal. It will prove to be a confirmation to the whole world that the End of Days have truly begun.
