A recent study finds that 52 percent of Americans feel that they are in danger every day, including within their home. And the younger the survey group got, the more fearful they became with 75 percent of those between 25 and 34 living in fear.

As you read through the story, many of us might find ourselves agreeing on one point or another. After all, look around us. Can anyone deny that our nation and our world are becoming more violent, more reckless, and frankly more evil each and every day?

And with the rising fear, how far behind lies hopelessness? As the nations rage, seeing hatred and inequality in every crack and crevice of society, they lash out in anger, fear, and hopelessness though I am certain that most would not want to admit that. They look beneath their feet and believe that the foundations upon which they stand and upon which generations have stood are frail and faulty and they cannot hold up much longer. Their misplaced faith is faltering and the world they know is faltering with it. So “tear it down” is becoming the new silent mantra sweeping across the world. It must be torn down and rebuilt properly, which means in a manner that fits the best with the new, emerging society.

Fearfulness is rampant, and will only get worse, along with nearly everything else in this world. The Bible aptly describes what these last days will look like and believe me, we are in the last throngs of the last days. Hopelessness and fearfulness are right there, driving the world off the cliff. This is a world searching for answers, for stability, fairness, for everything in the bucket list leading to peace and happiness, at least as they see and understand it.

It is a dangerous and terrible ride on which the world is residing. Having largely rejected God and His son, Jesus Christ, they long for someone to come along behind whom they can assemble and follow as this person leads them into a new world. They cry out for someone to restore their hope in this world, erase the fears that they face daily, and usher in stability, peace, and happiness upon which they can finally live their dreams.

And one day, the man of their dreams is going to show up.

Former Belgian Prime Minister and president of the first United Nations General Assembly, Paul-Henri Spaak had this to say on the matter:

We do not want another committee, we have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all the people and to lift us up out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man, and whether he be God or devil, we will receive him.

Paul-Henri Spaak

While the issues driving today’s society on their madcap adventure are more than money and the economy, it is certain that the general consensus would be in agreement with Spaak. “Send us such a person,” is the sentiment, “someone who can right the ship and take my fears away.”

Send us anyone…God or devil…we will vote for him, we will follow him, we will receive him.

When Jesus walked this earth he said that his own people rejected him. He went on to say that there will be another who comes, and him, the people will receive. And that person is out there, peaking over the horizon of our future, getting ready to step out and be received.

But don’t be fooled…

The Lord Jesus Christ said to come unto him, all of you that labor and carry heavy burdens, and he will give you rest. Jesus is the true prince of peace, unlike this dark prince which is about to take center stage. Living in fear is because of misplaced faith. Do not place it in the likes of people, for they can and will disappoint and fail you.

Place your faith in Jesus Christ today. He will never leave you or forsake you. And when you do, he will give you everlasting life. Trust Him today, and let Him take the fear from your lives.

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. Acts 16:31

You Probably Don’t Believe in Prophecy

That’s okay. You can believe what you want to believe.

But if you could put aside your beliefs for a few moments and play a “what if?” game with me, you might find this interesting.

I want to take a small portion of the text from a well-known Biblical prophecy. EVERYONE has heard about the mark of the beast whether they believe it or understand it. It has, in some ways, gained traction in culture and as a result, has widespread recognition. We can thank the movie The Omen and numerous other venues for that.

So here are the two verses from Revelation chapter 13 I wish to share:

16 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:
17 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.

So the gist of the text is this: He (the beast, whoever that it is) will cause people from every political, social, and economic status and walk of life to receive a mark (of some kind) on their right hand or their foreheads. He (the beast) does that so no one is able to buy anything or sell anything without the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

According to the Bible, this beast will implement and enforce a system to control the economy of every single man, woman, and child. This system provides such dictatorial, authoritarian control over you that unless you sign up for the beast’s team you won’t be able to sell your home or buy food for dinner (or anything else).

Let that sink in for a minute. You won’t be able to buy food to eat. Your children won’t be able to eat. Everyone who stands opposed to the beast and his system faces persecution and starvation.

Now, once that has settled in or unsettled you, here comes the “what if” part.

What if this Bible prophecy is true?

You may not believe it as I do, but I am asking you to stretch your minds, and as you do, imagine, if possible, that it is true. Now, when you have battled your way through all the barriers of your rational mind and settled in with that thought, then let me ask you, what if you were the beast?

Again, stretching your imagination, put a crown on your head, and assume your role as the new leader of the world, known biblically as the beast or the antichrist. And when you are ready, think about the following:

How would you implement a system that could prevent anyone on the entire planet from buying or selling anything without your mark of approval? What pieces would you strategically place on the board in order to carry out your plan?

As you consider my “what ifs”, I will move on in an attempt to stimulate your thinking.

In order to be able to control whether people can buy and sell anything, you as the beast and your system would have to have a means by which you could identify every human being. Perhaps, a system similar to the one proposed by ID2020.org would be useful for your world domination. You can read about their plans for a digital identity for everyone here. The ID2020 Manifesto is available for you to watch here. The efforts of ID2020 and the World Economic Forum is laid out in this article.

But that only solves part of the problem. In order for you to execute your beastly plans, you would also need the means to track every person, where they are, and what they are doing. Good thing that China has already implemented a monitoring system called a social credit system that is essentially a digital dictatorship that would fit well in your plans to monitor and control every minute of every person’s life. In fact, it works so well, that other countries such as the United States, Canada, and the UK are considering similar programs or are already implementing them to some degree.

For those of you who are fans of Black Mirror, a bizarre version of a social credit system was shown in Season 3, The Nosedive. I have provided a link to one of the available clips available online. I have also provided another link where there is some commentary provided during the clip.

I think we are nearly there for you, King Beast. Every person in the world now has a digital identification, and the means to monitor every move and activity of every person is now in place. But what’s to prevent someone from pulling some cash from their pocket and buying a little food before running off, eating as they go?

That sounds a little tough to do. But hold on. There may be an answer.

And we can look to our friends in the far east (China) yet again for that answer as they have already blazed the trails of digital currency. Other nations such as the United States are also interested in digital currency and President Biden has gone so far in saying that the new world order that is emerging will force a digital currency on everybody. (EUTimes) While Central Banks might see the move to digital currency as a plus, not everyone thinks it is a great idea. (TheHill)

With the digital currency in place, working through your system of digital ID and social credit system, you, as the beast have everything you need, apart from whatever method is implemented for applying the mark to those who submit to your will.

All that is left is dealing with those stubborn people who will end up refusing to bend to your will. They will, in the face of death, refuse to yield and worship you or your image. You simply have to come up with are some useful tools with some very sharp edges to deal with them. Heads will be rolling.

So, you may not believe in Bible prophecy, but hopefully you will start to wonder if it was possible based on everything that is going on in the world. Believe it or not, time is running out for you to make a decision about Jesus Christ. You don’t want to be here for what is coming fast around the corner.
