Prophecy Update #741 – Cash Me Out

Christians are encouraged to look for “the blessed hope – the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13).

We look ahead to tomorrow, living with the awareness Jesus could come today.

One of the ways we look ahead to tomorrow is to consider the hundreds of unfulfilled prophecies in the Bible. We can expect the world to be moving in the direction predicted for the End Times.

We reserve a few minutes Sunday morning to suggest news, or trends, that seem to be predicted by our futurist reading of the Bible:

  • To avoid sensationalism, we are careful to use recognized, reliable sources for news.
  • We’re not saying the things we report are the fulfillment of prophecy. We’re saying that they are the things you’d expect to be happening in the build-up to the future seven year Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

A Utah-based biotech company has implanted brain chips in dozens of patients in an effort to cure depression, blindness and paralysis. The chip, known as NeuroPort Array, is manufactured by Blackrock Neurotech.

Blackrock’s device attaches 96 arrays, small needle-shaped brain chips, that decipher and stimulate electrical signals generated by someone’s thoughts.

Recipients of the NeuroPort Array chip are also able to control prosthetic limbs and wheelchairs, play video games and feel sensations.

The signals produced by the thoughts are decoded by machine learning software into digital commands used to control prosthetics and computer equipment.

The first chip was implanted in a human in 2004. Approximately fifty people have since been implanted with Blackrock’s brain device.

Another source reported the following:

Today, more than 50,000 people have elected to have a subdermal chip surgically inserted between the thumb and index finger, serve as their new swipe key, or credit card. In Germany, for example, more than 2,000 Germans have opted to receive these implants; one man even used it to store a link to his last will and testament.

Cash transactions are almost a thing of the past in Australia. posted a story titled, Cashless Australia.


One of Australia’s biggest banks has confirmed that some of its branches will no longer allow customers to withdraw money over the counter.

ANZ bank is stripping back some of its services, with certain branches in Victoria no longer carrying physical cash.

ANZ said that only 8% of its customers rely on banks for their money as more and more Australians switch to internet banking.

Cash transactions are dying in Australia with just 13% of purchases now using banknotes or coins.

Tap-and-go cards, mobile payments and direct online transfers make up the rest of all transactions.

Other countries moving toward a cashless economy are Sweden, Finland, China, South Korea, the UK, the Netherlands, and Canada. Sweden has a set a date for this year to go cashless.

The Bible describes a cashless future in which all transactions will be conducted within a system that requires a person to possess on or in their body what is commonly called the Mark of the Beast.

I’m not saying that an implanted chip is the Mark. I am saying that this is the news you expect to read from reading the Bible as a futurist.

The resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it.

Jesus will come, in the clouds, and raise the dead believers of the Church Age.

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