Mark of The Beast

Mark of the Beast


The actual "Mark" is Antichrist's NAME or NUMBER, not ours.
It is "worn" as a symbol of worship on the right hand or on the forehead. However, national or international ID numbers are also significant because at the time the Mark is instituted, Antichrist will control all buying and selling, which obviously requires personal identification for all people.

In recent years e-commerce has grown exponentially, making it ever more convenient for individuals to shop from their computers or smart phones, and making it more difficult for brick-and-mortar stores to compete.

It is increasingly more likely that, at some point in the future, an evil antichrist could take control of world-wide commerce and the electronic system it will use..

Report: China Developing Orwellian 'Social Credit' System That Could Threaten Democracy

Feb. 18, 2018 - In 2012 China began work on its Social Credit System which is due to be launched in 2020. The massive program will determine each person's trustworthiness by...
...valuating their purchases, who their friends are, how much time they spend watching TV or playing video games, what bills and taxes they pay (or don’t) and where they are at any given time.
