Prophecy Update #699 – One Card To Rule Them All


We reserve a few minutes to discuss current trends that you’d expect from reading Bible prophecy.

We are futurists. We interpret all unfulfilled prophetic passages as future events that will occur in a literal, physical, apocalyptic, and global context.

Biometrics, Artificial Intelligence, cashless commerce, the manipulation of human DNA, global government, the exponential growth of human knowledge, and the rebirth of national Israel are End Times phenomena the Bible predicts. All of these are increasingly trending in the news.

May 17, cnbc.com, Mastercard launches tech that lets you pay with your face or hand in stores.

Excerpts:

Mastercard is piloting new technology that lets shoppers make payments with just their face or hand at the checkout point.

At checkout, users will be able to authenticate their payment by showing their face or the palm of their hand instead of swiping their card.

The program has already gone live in five grocery stores in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Mastercard says it plans to roll it out globally later this year.

Mastercard says it plans to bring the program to the US, Europe, the Middle East and Asia at a later date. In the long run, Mastercard’s vision is to make the tech “globally interoperable,” Bhalla said. “So once you’ve stored your credentials, you could use this anywhere.”[1]https://www.cnbc.com/2022/05/17/mastercard-launches-tech-that-lets-you-pay-with-your-face-or-hand.html

Two-thousand plus years ago, the apostle John wrote about the future. He saw “all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave… 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).

Furthermore, if you refuse to participate, it will be a capital offense carrying the death penalty.

Here is an excerpt from another article:

Klaus Schwab predicts brain microchips are fast becoming a reality. The Great Reset leader and World Economic Forum executive chairman, predicts Big Tech firms will increasingly pursue implanted microchips and other “transhumanist” technologies.

In a recently uncovered 2016 video Schwab openly admits he is a fan of the technology. He even claims brain chips will be extensively used “certainly in the next 10 years” to combine the physical, digital, and biological world.

“At first we will implant them in our clothes. We could imagine that we will implant them in our brain, or in our skin. In the end, maybe there will be a direct communication between our brains and the digital world.”[2]https://thebl.com/us-news/people-of-future-will-have-microchips-implanted-in-their-brains-says-world-economic-forum-boss.html

Then there is this. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla introduced their “ingestible pills” – a pill with a tiny chip that send a wireless signal to relevant authorities when the pharmaceutical has been digested. “Imagine the compliance,” he commented.

We believe the resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it. It will happen before the Great Tribulation.

Jesus will return in the clouds.

He will raise the dead in Christ.

He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies.

We will all join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.

Are you ready for the rapture? If not, Get ready; Stay ready; Keep looking up.

Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
