Not THE Mark 2
In “Not THE Mark: Part 1” we touched upon: the Beast; the Mark of the Beast; nations going Cashless and corporations implanting their employees.
I know, there is so much more; still, how much can we share at one time? “?”

The Mark of the Beast
The technology for the Mark will proliferate throughout the financial world long before the odious device itself will be employed as the Mark of the Beast. Only by bringing the technology into the forefront of modern society and fashion will the Beast be able to overcome much of the Body of Christ’s reluctance toward the tech as a whole. Once related technologies have exceeded the necessary levels for general acceptance and forward momentum, the Great Consummation will begin with the Beast compelling every citizen young and old to receive the financial and identification applications embedded within the Mark of the Beast. Tragically, Christendom possesses an excess of immature believers, people who desire to possess the new and popular far more than they crave following God’s Word. All the red flags and warning signs in the world will not slow down these foolish babes in Christ. After all, a person does not need to be a Christian to have heard about the Mark of the Beast or know better than to accept its instant damnation!
The Mark, a biologically embeddable implant containing near-field communication technologies (NFC), will provide a variety of personal functions, including but not limited to mobile banking, individual identification, GPS tracking, and access to all personal financial and medical information. Though the Mark may openly offer consumers a variety of worthwhile applications, its primary function will be to covertly provide governments with a severe level of control over all individuals and their finances. Those who do not possess the Mark will be ruthlessly limited in their ability to manage finances of any kind. When governments the world over convert from cash to cashless financial systems, retailers, wholesalers, department stores, chain food outlets, and warehouses of all shapes and sizes will be forced to accept the Mark of the Beast and only the Mark for all transactions. Businesses will require every employee to possess the Mark so they may meet government requisites, such as taxation and payroll. Employers will require employees to possess the Mark so they can be payroll compliant, managing taxation and the matching payments for Social Security and other types of insurance or installments. All banking will require customers to have the new technology for bank accounts and processing of all checks and credit and debit cards. A person will not be able to purchase anything, including a mortgage or food/health products without the new technology, the Mark.
Before any child may attend school, public or private, obtain health or life insurance, become eligible for any type of government program or services, the child will be compelled to receive the technology for the Mark. In effect, every citizen, young or old, rich or poor, healthy or infirm, everyone will be compelled to obtain the Mark of the Beast, regardless of religion or personal conviction. In this way, governments will be able to gain a unique and powerful control over every citizen in every country. These are the reasons conscience and religious-based objections were overwritten and removed from the laws of the land. Politicians and government leaders were pawns in Satan’s schemes, pulling their strings in order to change pertinent legislation.
The advent of the Internet made the Mark of the Beast possible. The World Wide Web facilitates global electronic integration, enabling the Mark to instantaneously update each bank or financial institution with every purchase. For many years, Internet technologies and software packages capable of maintaining international banking integrity did not exist; however, over the past few decades such technologies have been under rapid construction. Powerful technologies had to be developed before the Mark of the Beast could be successfully implemented on a global scale. Communications and financial technologies, such as smartphones, tablets, smart-wallets, and chipped credit/debit cards for banking and lending institutions require instantaneous connections with secure servers and processing systems. A technology such as the Mark of the Beast will require global financial systems to be capable of implementing a continuous and safe level of transmissions while manipulating trillions of bits of secured real-time data. Today’s international banking is only possible because of processing technologies and software capable of handling the current and potentially future levels of global finance. In 2015, one such software package has been integrated into financial systems throughout the world and recently added to the United States of America’s technologies. The program is called the EMV (EuroPay, MasterCard, and Visa) payment system.
As governments begin developing and executing updated versions of the new cashless financial construct, hundreds of millions of citizens, Christian and non-Christian alike, will scramble to possess the newest and most popular versions of the latest wetware-technologies. Aside from the varied and newly compatible wetware technologies currently on the market, the Mark will be instituted and distributed at the earliest possible moment. Better services mean better biotech and a more efficient and interesting product line for the modern consumer. Today’s wetware contains ubiquitous computing capabilities, which are designed to process personal finances anywhere and with any system. The EMV payment system operates in conjunction with NFC-compatible products functioning throughout the world with companies striving to compete over the global marketplace while integrating their technologies as quickly and efficiently as possible. The integration for the EMV payment system took effect in the United States on October 1, 2015. Any business, corporation, or service within the United States that wants to use the chipped or chip and PIN credit/debit cards must also be in compliance with all EMV standards no later than October 1, 2015. All latecomers are subject to a shifting of liabilities from the payment card companies to the privately owned business entity. Use of the new chipped cards is expected to bolster business for all mom-and-pop stores throughout the world. Unfortunately any vendors or merchants processing fraudulent chipped credit/debit cards without confirming card authenticity through an EMV scanning system will likely find themselves financially responsible for any type of fraud or misuse perpetrated. Though merchants are (supposedly) not required to purchase the new EMV payment system or scanners, failure to do so will likely be financially detrimental to any business.
As businesses embrace the new EMV payment systems or similar types of processing technologies, the global marketplace draws one step closer to implementing the Mark of the Beast. To the man and woman on the street, bio-implants with NFC capabilities will likely just appear as another option for consumers. To the global markets, including every mom-and-pop convenience store, the nearly obligatory technologies will simply represent the cost of doing business. It is doubtful the average consumer will recognize the Mark of the Beast even as it is implanted under his or her skin. The Body of Christ, however, is responsible for identifying the Beast’s deceptions and alerting the saints to all their dangers.
Be advised, Satan’s purpose for the Mark of the Beast is to remove the seal of salvation from every Christian before the Body of Christ can be thoroughly warned. Fortunately, God designed the Mark for a very different purpose: to separate true Christians from pseudo-Christians in preparation for the Second Coming of Christ. Only the faithful believer will join the Lord in the skies. Anyone who receives the Mark of the Beast will be left on earth to suffer the wrath of the Lamb! Many of these will be former Christians who foolishly took the Mark or bowed down and worshiped the Beast or his image. It is important to remember this saving principle: the believer who endures to the end, refusing to bow before the Beast, receive his mark, or acknowledge his image will remain saved! I say, “Better safe than sorry!”
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death” (Revelation 12:11 NKJV).
“He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels” (Revelation 3:5 NKJV).
Revelation 13:14b-16 (emphasis added)
“…to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived (The Beast/Anti-Christ). 15 He (the False Prophet) was granted power to give breath (or life: see note 1 below) to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
Note 1: The Greek word “pneuma – ‘pnyü’-mä’” used here for breath or life represents an actual – living spirit.
