Anti-Christ

Say goodbye to paper money — banks are quietly working to get rid of cash. My discernment is that there are FIVE (5) world systems Satanically influenced during the SEVEN (7) Year Tribulation. The rise of cashlessness in authoritarian countries is that banks can be ordered to, for example, stop political dissidents or pro-democracy campaigners from buying particular things from particular people. ‘NO MARK? NO HEAD!’

Paul Rolland, Night Watchman, Night Watchman Ministries

“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matt. 24:9-14). SIX ‘6’ verses.

Seven (7) verses of the evil Beast / Antichrist (6) who martyrs the Christian Saints, during the coming seven (7) year Tribulation and Great Tribulation:

Matthew 24:9  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

Daniel 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Revelation 16:6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

Revelation 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Revelation 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

Ten ‘10’ Denotes God’s divine ‘COMPLETENESS’ as to things on EARTH. In Revelation 10, he is opening up the ancient scrolls and ‘little book’ of prophecy that Daniel was told to ‘SEAL UP’ and not write of what was spoken. He was prophetically being told additional things that would transpire or occur ‘in the end of days’ and during the 7 year ‘tribulation.

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the ‘time of the end’: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the ‘time of the end’.

‘Time of the End’:

Revelation ‘10’ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

2 And he had in his hand a ‘little book open’(NWN; Daniels ‘little book’ is now being opened by God’s Great Angel of Prophecy) and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven ‘7’ thunders uttered their voices.

(NWN; I ‘discern’ that these are seven ‘7’ other great prophecy angels who are ‘confirming’ that NOW IS THE TIME to OPEN DANIEL’S ‘END TIME’ Book of Future Prophecy.’)

4 And when the seven ‘7’ thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven ‘7’ thunders uttered, and write them not.

5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

(NWN; The Great Prophecy Angel is proclaiming the ‘LAST DAYS or END TIMES’ have come, in no uncertain terms, and that NOW IS THE TIME to reveal prophecy related TO the Last Days or End Times and Tribulation.)

7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh ‘7’ angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

(NWN; Seven ‘7’ denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for this ‘7th’ prophecy angel to commence and complete prophecy related to the Last Days and End Times. Think of the Great Prophecy Angel as a ‘General’ and the ‘7th’ prophecy angel as a Major or Colonel or someone of rank who has been given authority to physically ‘begin something or start something.’)

8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open (NWN; notice that the ‘little book’ is OPEN) in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

(NWN; the prophecy angel(s) are HANDING the little book to physically alive men on the earth. In essence, they are handing or ‘transferring’ the ‘little book of prophecy’ to physical men ALIVE on the EARTH during the ‘End Times’ or ‘Last Days.’ God conveys prophecy to Angels who in turn are ‘messengers’ of God’s prophecy to mortal men alive. Angels, throughout the past 6,000 years have been ‘messengers’ for God to mankind.)

9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

(NWN; this is a ‘discernment’ on my part. ‘Take it and eat it’ is a spiritual ‘consumption’ of understanding the End Times and God’s related prophecies to go along with ‘signs of the times.’ It takes ‘7’ knowledge, wisdom, obedience, humility, persistence, prayer and the Holy Spirit’ to work prophecy in man’kind. This is a great and wonderful thing, just like a ‘7’ course meal. However, once the prophecies are apparent ‘consumed and understood’ they will be prone to make one sick to the stomach because of what they foretell. Just like eating a ’7’ course meal will likely make you feel like you could explode. God’s UNFILTERD WRATH poured on evil man’kind who refuse Him, and refuse His Son Jesus Christ and His eternal offer of salvation. Seeing prophecy happen and unfold is a wonderful and miraculous thing. Understanding the implications of seeing prophecy unfold, leaves one’s stomach bitter and sour because of the ‘gastrointestinal storm’ that is coming. Pass-the-antacid-pills, please.)

10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

(NWN; the prophecy angel was prophesying what would happen to anyone who attempted to reveal what was in the ‘little book.’ This verse ‘confirms’ that what was prophesied, did in fact occur and was experienced by those given the task of being Watchmen. This also ‘suggests’ that some men are ‘willingly’ allowing themselves to be Watchmen because they consciously love prophecy (God’s Word) and are completely open and receptive to it.)

11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

(NWN; since this is verse ‘11’ it suggests a WARNING(S). The purpose of prophecy is to inform, proclaim and WARN. It suggests that the Watchmen who proclaim the Word of God, will have their ‘7’ words, letters, videos, blogs, sermons, articles and books proclaim God’s WILL to those during the End Times / Last Days and Tribulation period. God has ALWAYS used Holy Angels and physical men (Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Enoch, and others) to speak on behalf of God. He will do this also through the Tribulation via; 1. Prophecy revealed to mankind via his ‘little book’ to Watchmen, 2. The ‘two witnesses’, ‘lampstands’ or candles who proclaims God’s light to the world for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation, 3. The various Angel warnings given to men to NOT TAKE THE MARK of the BEAST and lastly, 4. The 144,000 Jewish Evangelists who have the ‘seal of God’ in their foreheads (and NOT the mark of the Beast) who proclaim Jesus Christ’s offer of Salvation ONE LAST TIME, before the 7 year tribulation ends.)

Acts 2:17-21 And it shall come to pass ‘in the last days’, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

Joel 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids ‘in those days’

‘7’ The Coming Infrared Biometric Vaccination QR Code’ (5) ‘Mark of the Beast System’:

(Five (5); Digital ID, Vaccination Passport, Biometric Infrared Scanning, Vaccine ‘Mark’ or ‘code/number’ of Approval or Authorization, 5G Technology/Network.)

The ‘coming’ mark will most likely involve a ‘subdermal’ (non-hypodermic needle) application of the next wave of vaccinations, that will include a form of ‘digital data memory’ indicating date and time of vaccination. This ‘mark’ of vaccination will involve a sub-dermal outline or image representing a ‘branding’ that can be scanned and revealed by infrared light at a retail checkout point scanner. Just as many people have a physical vaccination ‘mark’ on their arm from getting shots in the 1960s, the coming vaccination mark will be subtle and reside ‘inside’ the human body affecting and indicating a genomic change in the recipient. This is an abomination viewed by God and causes the recipient to lose ‘Imager Status before God’ and results in eternal damnation. The vaccination ‘mark’ has to be easily accessible by scanners and retail checkout points, hence the recipient will have the option of receiving the vaccination ‘patch’ either on their hand or forehead for ‘scannability.’ The patch or medium itself ‘dissolves’ on the exterior of the skin, as the vaccination and information is administered or delivered under the skin. Some technology is currently under development that will possibly allow for the recipient’s health status and response to the vaccine to be ‘scanned’ and ‘verified’ or ‘validated’ at retail or social checkpoints. The purpose of which is to identify whether or not the vaccine has actually worked (and is working) on the recipient’s body / immune system / genetics / RNA / DNA, in addition to informing authorities as to date, time, dosage and manufacturer of said ‘medicine.’

False Prophet (The WORLD’S Greatest Social ‘Influencer’). ‘Go ahead, get the jab, it is good for you, it is good for humanity, it is the ‘moral’ thing to do.’

Revelation 13:16-17 And he [false prophet, pope, pontiff] causeth ALL, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a [‘subdermal, infrared, vaccination, smart’] mark IN their right hand, or IN their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the [‘subdermal, infrared, vaccination, smart’] mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Emphasis mine. Discernment mine.)

Revelation 19:20 

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he [false prophet, pope, pontiff] DECEIVED THEM that had received the [‘subdermal, infrared, vaccination, smart’] mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. (Emphasis mine. Discernment mine.)

Revelation 14:11

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Revelation 20:4

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had NOT worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5G + Biometric Facial / Hand Scanning + Digital / Cashless Transactions + Mark of Approval / Authorization = Tomorrow’s Economy (2020-2027). Why 2020? Because these ‘things’ have already occurred (past tense) elsewhere (China, India, Asia and a few countries in Europe) in the world in 2020, even though they have not yet occurred in the ‘United’ States.

Biometric scanning used for migrant/border control, secure identity verification and approval, government benefits, domestic and international travel security, economic inclusion of everyone, buying/selling transactions and fund transfers, instantaneous speed of transaction and convenience, VAT/taxation collection, mobility, social credit score and ranking, population movement and tracking, monitoring political and religious ‘extremism’ (terrorists). ‘Mark, number or name’ for verification and approval.

‘Any foreign material(s) should NOT be injected into the human body that causes any kind of change in genetic makeup or structure of a human being. This could be five (5) genetic ‘manipulation’, ‘enhancement’, ‘cutting’, ‘modification’, or ‘alteration.’

Revelation 16:2

And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. [Symptom or result from having ‘received’ the mark, a result from having changed or damaged a person’s RNA, DNA, Immune System or Genetics].

Both American vaccines use messenger RNA (mRNA) to combat the virus. That is an advanced genetic therapy that uses the virus’ own genetic material against it. Kendrick, however, warns that the technology isreally new and untested, meaning no one really knows how it could affect human health, since it literally hijacks the cellular reproduction mechanism. “We really do not know what these things might end up doing after a prolonged period of time.”

“The plague year of 2020 will be remembered as the time when traditional vaccines were supplanted by something fundamentally new: genetic vaccines, which deliver a gene or piece of genetic code into human cells. The genetic instructions then cause the cells to produce, on their own, safe components of the target virus in order to stimulate the patient’s immune system.”

‘The MARK’ may not be here just yet, but it will be shortly … in terms of a year or two (2023). Verification that a ‘genetic manipulation’ has been administered and will be evident, either in the hand or in the forehead by infrared biometric scanning to enable travel, buying and selling. Do you still ‘want to take’ the jab even if it is not yet administered in your hand or in your forehead in some other manner? If you are curious, please read my other analyses on ‘why’ getting ‘the mark’ is such a bad (understatement) thing in the eyes of God. It is one thing to understand that people in the extremely near future should NOT GET THE MARK. It is another thing to UNDERSTAND WHY THEY SHOULD NOT GET A MARK. This is not a ‘conspiracy theory,’ but the Word of God. I have provided the requisite verses from the Bible, regarding God’s comments about ‘the mark’ of the coming world beast system.

NO ‘MICROCHIP’ NEEDED. Implantable Quantum Dot Microneedle Vaccine INFRARED Delivery System:

MIT researchers have now developed a novel way to record a patient’s vaccination history: storing the data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine. This technology could enable the rapid and anonymous detection of patient vaccination history. The researchers showed that their new dye, which consists of nanocrystals called quantum dots, can remain for at least five (5) years under the skin, where it emits [near-infrared light] that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone. To create an “on-patient,” decentralized medical record, the researchers developed a new type of copper-based quantum dots, which emit light in the [near-infrared spectrum]. The dots are only about 4 nanometers in diameter, but they are encapsulated in biocompatible microparticles that form spheres about 20 microns in diameter. This encapsulation allows the dye to remain in place, under the skin, after being injected. The researchers designed their dye to be delivered by a microneedle ‘patch’ rather than a traditional syringe and needle. Such patches are now being developed to deliver vaccines for measles, rubella, and other diseases, and the researchers showed that their dye could be easily incorporated into these patches. The microneedles used in this study are made from a mixture of dissolvable sugar and a polymer called PVA, as well as the quantum-dot dye and the vaccine. When the patch is applied to the skin, the microneedles, which are 1.5 millimeters long, partially dissolve, releasing their payload within about two minutes.

By selectively loading microparticles into microneedles, the patches deliver a pattern in the skin that is invisible to the naked eye but can be scanned with a smartphone that has the [infrared] filter removed. The patch can be customized to imprint different patterns that correspond to the type of vaccine delivered. “It’s possible that this ‘invisible’ approach could create new possibilities for data storage, biosensing, and vaccine applications that could improve how medical care is provided, particularly in the developing world,” Langer says.

The quantum-dot patterns could be detected by smartphone cameras after up to five (5) years of simulated sun exposure. The researchers are also working on expanding the amount of data that can be encoded in a single pattern, allowing them to include information such as the date of vaccine administration and the lot number of the vaccine batch. “Storage, access, and control of medical records is an important topic with many possible approaches.” “This study presents a novel approach where the medical record is stored and controlled by the patient within the patient’s skin in a minimally invasive and elegant way.” The research was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Koch Institute Support (core) Grant from the National Cancer Institute.

APPLE FACE and PALM ‘INFRARED Photo Detectors’ biometrics planned in 2023 iPhones.

Face ID Infrared biometrics cameras are coming to Apple devices in 2023. A series of patent filings by Apple have hinted at the company’s work on under-display biometric cameras, with the latest published in February (2021).  Apple eyes next-generation biometric scanners for under-display Touch ID. ‘[Infrared photodetectors] could be used for biometric user identification and authentication in the palm or face.’ A new patent application by Apple is signaling the company’s emphasis on biometric ‘photodetector’ technology for under-display touch identification to be potentially deployed on its devices. The sensors include biometric sensors, depth sensors, and cameras. Apple’s listed uses of the photodetectors include security and health monitoring. Arrays of these photodetectors may be deployed to scan fingerprint, palm print, 3D face, or eye biometrics. The [photodetectors could be used for biometric user identification and authentication.] Photodetectors emit electromagnetic radiation against an object such as a finger, face, or stylus. Once reflected by the object, this radiation returns a backscatter which then passes back through the display to register the object’s information. The document also refers to the possibility of using optical, ultrasonic, thermal or other sensing technologies within the system. In addition to this, the photodetectors are also capable of obtaining ophthalmic scans, ECG, and pulse for health monitoring. Other uses of the scanners include palm scanning for social matching and social networking. Apple’s research and development of technology for monitoring health metrics, three patent applications describe [Infrared transceivers] for object recognition. The [infrared transceivers], which may be used in telephones include beam-steering technology and will likely be used for augmented object recognition via visible and [infrared light]. According to the filing, the device can sense objects in a variety of light conditions including visible light, UV, and [infrared spectrum] ranges.

Vaccine INFRARED ‘Micro-Needle SMART Patch’

“Nanocrystals called quantum dots, can remain for at least FIVE (5) years under the skin, forming an ‘image’, where they emit near-[infrared light] that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone.” (MIT researchers FUNDED by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation).

‘Infrared’ Mark of the Beast, 2023 to 2028 = FIVE (5) YEARS.

FIVE (5) is the number denoting Satanic influence over the behavior of evil man’kind (666).

False Prophet

Revelation 13:16-17 And he causeth 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.

My discernment is that;

2023 / 2024 will mark the ‘roll-out’ of the ‘MARK’ of the BEAST.

2025 will mark the ‘mid-point’ of the 7 Year Tribulation, the Abomination of Desolation revealing the BEAST to be the ANTICHRIST, the Destruction of ‘Mystery Religion’, the beginning of worshipping the BEAST and his IMAGE, and the ‘BEHEADING’ of those who refuse the  Beast’s MARK, refuse to worship the BEAST or his IMAGE. Until 2025, Christians will be ‘protected’ under the MYSTERY RELIGION doctrine of (5) ‘inter-religious dialogue, brotherhood, human fraternity, coexistence and false religious / political peace.’ Upon the enactment of the Antichrist’s Abomination of Desolation and the abolishment of the Mystery Religion, is when BOTH the Jews will become persecuted and have to flee Jerusalem AND Christians will start to be BEHEADED because they will refuse to get the mark and refuse to worship the BEAST and his IMAGE. Beheadings will last during the FINAL 3.5 years of the Tribulation (Great Tribulation) and cease at the end of 2028 / 2029.

The ‘mark’ comes shortly, during the tribulation, but the Bride is ‘not here.’ The ‘current’ vaccine(s) are NOT the mark, yet. But they are a ‘precursor’ (‘NORMALIZATION’) of the beast system process, getting people accustomed to getting ‘tagged’, ‘marked’ or ‘branded.’

Say goodbye to paper money — banks are quietly working to get rid of cash. My discernment is that there are FIVE (5) world systems Satanically influenced during the SEVEN (7) Year Tribulation. The rise of cashlessness in authoritarian countries is that banks can be ordered to, for example, stop political dissidents or pro-democracy campaigners from buying particular things from particular people.

Brett Scott Jun 14, 2022, 6:56 AM Business Insider

Dispense with a horse and save the expense, care and anxiety of keeping it,” read the first automobile advertisement in 1898. An early term for these motorcars was “horseless carriage,” which suggested that the innovation was unencumbered by the previous limitation of a living horse. I like to picture early car enthusiasts trying to overtake a horse cart on a country road while shouting, “Make way for the future!”

Now, much like the car salesmen in the past, purveyors of so-called cashless payments — all those bank cards, fintech platforms, and mobile apps that facilitate the transfer of digital dollars between accounts — are presenting cash as the horse-drawn cart of payments, saying that it survives only through the stubborn nostalgia of laggards. In a 2016 Super Bowl ad, PayPal launched an attack on “old money,” contrasting it to a world of digital “new money.” Players such as Visa and PayPal present digital money as an update to cash — the former even entered into a deal with the NFL to promote a cashless Super Bowl in 2020. Like the term “horseless carriage,” the term “cashless payment” implies that some previous hindrance has been shaken off. And why hold on to an inferior system?

This denigration of cash has been effective. In major cities across the world, a rash of shops have started to go cashless, especially in the wake of COVID-19. In the UK, for example, cash usage collapsed by 50% in 2020 as cash users were rejected by stores that refused to take their physical money.

But cash is not an inferior system, and the idea that cash is the “horse-drawn cart of payments” is both misleading and dangerous. In fact, this rush to make the world cashless could result in millions of people getting entirely cut out of the global economy. Even people who prefer card or app payments should reject a totally cashless world. It’s a world where even the tiniest of payments will have to travel via powerful financial institutions, which leaves us exposed to their surveillance and control — and also their incompetence. A payments system without cash is one dependent on banks that are prone to financial crises, systems failure, and cyberattacks.

The casino chips of the economy

Unlike the move from horse-drawn carriages to cars, digital bank transfers are not an upgrade to the current government cash system. That’s because the cash-based system underpins its “cashless” counterpart. The easiest way to understand this is through an analogy. Are casino chips an “upgrade” to the cash you might hand over to get them? No. A casino chip is a limited-purpose form of money, issued by a casino. But if you weren’t able to redeem a chip for cash, it would be worthless.

Many people don’t realize that mainstream digital money is similar. The units you see in your bank account are “digital chips,” issued to you by your bank, which you control with your payment card or mobile app. The entire digital-payments system — facilitated by companies such as Visa and Mastercard — is an elaborate network for transferring these bank-issued chips around, but they remain psychologically — and legally — anchored to the cash system. When you go to an ATM to withdraw cash, you’re demanding the redemption of your chips.

It’s not clear whether the digital monetary system could even exist without access to cash. The digital chips promise you government-issued dollar bills, and that promise is empty if you can’t get those from the ATM. Despite this, banks in many countries are hoping that people slowly forget that they have a right to get their money out of the banking system, closing down ATMs and retail bank branches and effectively blocking the exits to the system. While older generations still make a clear distinction between “money outside the bank” (cash) and “money inside the bank” (digital bank chips), many younger people forget that there is an outside, and future generations may never know any better. As this progresses, we’re getting locked into financial institutions that can watch us, influence us, and constrain us via their chokehold on the payments infrastructure.

Don’t put all your eggs in the digital basket

Promoters of a cashless society paint cash as an out-of-date impediment — much like those horse-drawn carriages blocking the road for cars. Yet in reality, there’s no conflict maintaining both cash and digital money systems. Unlike horse carts versus motorcars, cash runs on entirely different tracks to digital payments. It’s a parallel system, and from a user’s perspective, cash is more like the bicycle of payments than the horse cart. Cash may not move as fast or as far as transnational digital systems, but it’s great for short outings, it’s more inclusive, and it certainly comes in handy when the other system gets jammed up.

A digital bank account depends on getting access to the broader banking system, and on that system being maintained. Cash, by contrast, doesn’t crash when the electricity fails or when a cyberattack brings a payments system down. Any society that relies exclusively on digital platforms run by mega-institutions is going to have major resilience problems. If the institutions go offline, you may suddenly find yourself unable to interact with your surroundings. During a 10-hour outage in Visa’s European systems in 2018 — caused by a failure in its primary data center — 5.2 million payment attempts were blocked, which left people who’d become dependent on card payments stranded and searching for ATMs (which are getting harder to find). This is why there’s a major spike in cash demand in the US prior to hurricane landings. People understand that digital systems are insecure, and in a world in which the climate crisis makes extreme weather events more likely, putting all your eggs into the digital basket makes your economy far less resilient. 

But even in normal times there are many people who simply prefer cash, especially in informal settings where having digital institutions mediate seems like an overkill. Think of home poker games where friends stuff cash into a common pot, or wooden donation boxes at a community-run museum. Dropping cash into the box is simple, requires no account or digital infrastructure, and works fine in this down-to-earth situation. And why must globe-spanning digital-payments corporations stand between me and a homeless veteran whom I’m trying to give some dollars to?

It’s also no secret that there are class dynamics to this: People with more wealth and education are more prone to using digital payments, partly because they have higher trust in institutions such as banks and greater access to them too. A Morning Consult poll from 2021 found that 10% of US adults didn’t have a bank account. You don’t need a sociology degree to see that cashless establishments proliferate first in gentrified areas among more well-off people, and that establishments that start to refuse cash might be covertly trying to discourage poorer customers from entering their premises. If this trend proliferates, we will see a split economy forming, with millions of cash users — including elderly people, ethnic minorities, and privacy activists — pushed into ever smaller enclaves where cash remains accepted.

Despite how crucial it is to maintain an inclusive, multimodal payments system with nonbank and non-digital options, our payments system is being driven toward a monoculture. Ads for digital payments don’t say, “Enjoy the speed, convenience, surveillance, cyber-hacking, exclusion, and critical infrastructure weaknesses that our platform brings,” yet that is what lies beneath the surface-level slickness of digital payments. 

More power to the banks

One thing should be immediately clear: A major beneficiary of a move toward these digital chips is the banking industry. This is precisely why Brian Moynihan, Bank of America’s CEO, openly declared, “We want a cashless society,” adding that his firm has “more to gain than anybody” from a move to digital transactions.

This becomes obvious when you think through the differences between cash and card or app transactions. The former is localized, happening here and now between two people through the simple act of handing over a bill. A digital bank transfer, by contrast, is never localized: It’s set in motion through a device — a card, phone, or computer — which communicates with a distant bank data center. So-called cashless transactions take place between two banks that act on your behalf, and which insert themselves between buyers and sellers. And this has serious privacy implications.

Firms such as Bank of America are excited about a cashless society because digital payments not only bring them fees but also vast amounts of data about who transfers how much to whom. Financial institutions find this data extremely useful in profiling customers — information that can be used to cross-sell products to them or to decide who gets loans — and major tech players, such as Google, can use it to track, for example, how effective their online advertising is. As commercial players build up these financial data dossiers on people to make a profit, it opens the way for governments to pry into the accumulated information as well.

In the cashless society that Moynihan and other executives seek, anyone who can’t secure a bank account — or anyone who gets blacklisted by banks — effectively gets screened out of the economy. This could happen if you’re part of a minority group that banks simply deem not profitable enough to offer accounts to, or it could happen for political reasons. One major concern about the rise of cashlessness in authoritarian countries is that banks can be ordered to, for example, stop political dissidents or pro-democracy campaigners from buying particular things from particular people.

During the Hong Kong protests of 2019, activists stood in lines to buy subway tickets with cash, just in case their card payments were monitored for evidence of them traveling to protest sites. In a cashless society, their payments could be not only watched but also blocked to prevent travel. We see a limited-scale example of this paternalism in the Australian “cashless welfare card,” which prevents welfare recipients from buying alcohol and other non-approved goods from non-approved establishments. It also prevents them from withdrawing cash to get around the restrictions.

Cash fuels decentralization

But perhaps the most overlooked element of this story is the fact that the attack on cash is an attack on the local businesses that form the backbone of communities. One critique leveled at the Australian cashless welfare card is that it pushes people away from supporting local cash-based businesses and funnels them toward bigger retailers that work with Mastercard and Visa. Cash is by nature localized in its movement, and it’s not likely to end up being used to support a faraway tech giant. In past decades it was normal for people to hand over cash to local storekeepers, but the growing norm today is for people to transfer digital bank chips to distant corporations, such as Amazon. 

The major beneficiaries of a cashless society are not only the banking and fintech players in big cities but also big tech companies. And while a plethora of digital-payments companies and apps now available might give the illusion of diversity in that realm, they’re all built on the same underlying banking oligopolies; it’s standard practice for fintech players to quietly partner with major banks.

But what about cryptocurrency? One of the claims made by the growing crypto industry is that digital tokens, such as bitcoin, provide a counterforce to the banks’ digital-payments system and help to “democratize” digital finance away from large institutions. The vast majority of people who hold bitcoin, though, see it as something to be bought and sold for dollars, rather than a form of money itself. And even when it’s used for exchange, people rely on its dollar price to decide how much of it to hand over. Crypto tokens face all the same hacking and resilience problems as any digital system, and they also subject users to wild and destabilizing swings in price as they get traded on speculative markets. There’s a place for crypto, but fixating on it is a distraction.

The world’s most vulnerable people rely on the already existing, physical cash system, and our priority should be to protect that system. But this campaign to protect cash is also in the interests of those who enjoy digital platforms. The fight for bicycle lanes in cities dominated by cars is not an anti-car move — car lovers also benefit from the reduced congestion and the option to use their bicycle from time to time. Similarly, we need to fight for cash infrastructure and pro-cash laws in order to prevent our economies, and our lives, from becoming totally dependent on a single set of digital giants. You may enjoy Venmo and Cash App in the short term, but in the long term, it’s in everyone’s interests to maintain an offline, inclusive, and localized form of money that you can switch to when the chips are down.

Five-fold World Systems Satanically Controlled:

Economic system. (Buy, sell, merchants, trade, mark, name, number).  (18X). (Rev. 13:16, 13:17, 14:9, 14:11, 15:2, 16:2, 18:3, 18:7, 18:9, 18:11, 18:12, 18:13, 18:14, 18:15, 18:17, 18:19, 18:22, 18:23).

Communication system. (Nations shall see, in the sight of men, saying to them that dwell on earth). (15X). (Rev. 11:9, 11:10, 11:11, 11:12, 13:3, 13:4, 13:5, 13:6, 13:12, 13:13, 13:14, 13:15, 13:16, 13:17, 17:8).

Political system. (Kingdom, seat, authority, kings, power over nations). (12X). (Rev. 13:1, 13:2, 13:7, 16:10, 16:14, 17:3, 17:7, 17:12, 17:13, 17:16, 17:17, 17:18).

Military system. (Power, make war). (15X).(Rev. 6:2, 6:4, 10:16, 10:18, 10:19, 13:2, 13:7, 13:15, 16:14, 16:16, 17:12, 17:13, 17:14, 19:18, 19:19).

Religious system. (Mystery Religion Babylon). (24X).  (Rev. 9:20, 9:21, 13:4, 13:8, 13:11, 13:12, 13:14, 13:15, 14:8, 14:9, 14:11, 16:2, 17:1, 17:2, 17:4, 17:5, 17:15, 17:16, 18:3, 18:4, 18:5, 18:9, 19:2, 19:20).

Commentary:  Babylon System is the beast’s/antichrist’s kingdom of power and control on earth during the Tribulation. It is the beast’s/anti-christ’s political and military systems. It is an economic and communication system. It is the name of a physical city believed to be the capital of this kingdom. Lastly, it is a false, blasphemous religious and worship system (Mystery Religion Babylon). Satan controls and manipulates all these global systems, through his beast/antichrist and the false prophet. The number of references for each of these systems CONFIRMS his influence on these systems.

Economic System (18 references). 6+6+6=18. Six is the evil number of man, the beast and the false prophet. The economic system is man’s ultimate evil because he has to completely prostitute himself (spiritually) to the beast in order to participate in this system through taking the name, mark or number of the beast. 3×6=18. Three (3) denotes God’s intensity and emphasis, Six (6) denotes the evil number of man (mankind, beast, false prophet).

Communication System (15 references). 5+5+5=15. Control and manipulation of the world’s communications systems is under the influence of Satan, via the beast. Five (5) being the number of Satan and his influence in the world. 3×5=15. Three (3) denotes God’s intensity and emphasis. Satan controls the world’s communications systems so he can worshipped worldwide indirectly and eventually directly, through the beast.

Political System (12 references). 2×6=12. Two (2) denotes God’s solid confirmation of a matter. Six (6) is the evil number of man. Twelve (12) denotes God’s divinely constituted organization either in heaven or earth. Remember, even though the beast’s political system is evil, God is in control and allows this political system to exist for a limited time. The Bible is very clear about God’s desire to influence and orchestrate the development of this political system in Revelation 17:17, “For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.”

Military System (15 references). 5+5+5=15. Control and manipulation of the world’s military systems are under the influence of Satan, via the beast. Five (5) being the number of Satan and his influence in the world. 3×5=15. Three (3) denotes God’s intensity and emphasis. Revelation 13, 14 and 16 indicate that an unclean spirit is spewed forth by the dragon (and beast and false prophet) to go out into the world to motivate kings and their armies to arrive at Armageddon in order to do battle on the Great Day of the Lord.

Religious System (24 references). Ultimately, it is the whore (Mystery Religion Babylon) who causes religious/spiritual fornication among everyone on earth. This is the most evil of all five (5) worldwide systems influenced by Satan. He does everything in his power to shield or hide the truth about the saving gospel of Jesus Christ. He wants to destroy all men, and send them to hell and the lake of fire. He wants to blaspheme God. He wants the world to worship only him. He wants to world think he is equal to God. All of these satanic goals are manifest in Mystery Religion Babylon. The other four world systems (economic, communication, political and military) just serve a means to an end. The end culminating in the direct (false) worship of Satan. The religious system of Babylon receives the most references by the world of God through His Holy Spirit. 2×12=24. Two (2) signifying God’s solid confirmation of a matter and twelve (12) denoting God’s divinely constituted organization either in heaven or on earth. Another way to think of twenty-four (24) is 4×6=24. Four (4) denoting God’s foursquareness of balance and symmetry, and of intelligent design multiplied by six (6) the evil number of man (mankind, beast, false prophet). Once again, God is in control and only lets this evil religious system exist only for a divinely determined time and purpose.

8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028/29) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028/29-3028/29).

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
