The implementation of the ‘mark of the beast’ technology is being pushed forward. This new technology is opposed by many since it seriously infringes upon freedom and privacy.
All over the world, governments and big corporations assure us that new methods of identification will not be intrusive and will simply allow them to crack down on criminals such as identity thieves, tax evaders and terrorists.
But could it be possible that there is more going on here than we are being told? Could it be possible that we should actually be highly alarmed by this huge push for “Mark of the Beast” technology?
This week, we learned that a new form of identification for the Internet is being proposed in the European Union.
The European Union is proposing a government ID for using the Internet which will eradicate both on-line privacy and free speech.
Spearheaded by former communist official Andrus Ansip, the European Commission published a draft document outlining its proposed electronic ID that would not only allow the EU to track what you say on-line, but also what you buy.
When it is initially introduced, this government-issued form of Internet identification may be purely voluntary, but once enough people have adopted it, then it will be quite easy for the European Union to make it mandatory for everyone else. The following is an excerpt from a page on the official EU website that describes this new program…
It is recognised that a multitude of username and password combinations is both inconvenient and a security risk. However, the frequent practice of using one’s platform profile to access a range of websites and services often involves non-transparent exchanges and cross- linkages of personal data between various online platforms and websites. As a remedy, in order to keep identification simple and secure, consumers should be able to choose the credentials by which they want to identify or authenticate themselves. In particular, online platforms should accept credentials issued or recognised by national public authorities, such as electronic or mobile IDs, national identity cards, or bank cards.
So what form would such identification take in the future?
Photo IDs are so easily lost or stolen. In order to make identification more safe and more secure, many advocates are now suggesting that we find ways to make identification a permanent part of a person.
One way that this could be done is by using microchips. If this sounds creepy, it is because it is very creepy.
But all over the world, this is already being done to pets, and just recently a local NBC News report promoted the idea that we will all microchip our children someday.
We will soon be living in a world that looks nothing like the world that our grandparents grew up in. Technology is increasing at an exponential rate, and even now it is hard to grasp just how rapidly our planet is being transformed.
As technology becomes even more important to our lives, there will be even more of a push to move all transactions online. That means phasing out the current system of physical cash and coins, and going to a system that will eventually be entirely cashless.
In fact, in some areas of the world this is already happening to a very large degree…
In Sweden, 95 percent of all retail transactions are already cashless, and ATM machines are being removed by the hundreds. In Denmark, government officials actually have a stated goal of “eradicating cash” by the year 2030. And in Norway, the biggest bank in the country has publicly called for the complete elimination of all cash.
In Spain, all cash transactions of more than 2,500 euros have been banned, and in France and Italy all cash transactions of more than 1,000 euros have been banned.
Right now, there are more than 400 billion cashless transactions conducted around the globe annually, and that number may hit 500 billion for 2016.
It would be all too easy for a tyrannical government to mandate that everyone receive a “government identification chip” before being allowed to buy or sell or do anything else online. We are living at a time when the Book of Revelation is coming to life right in front of our eyes.
The stage is being set for the Mark of the Beast, and the time is coming when we are all going to be faced with some very tough choices.
