Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Romans 1: 21-23

There is an avalanche of technologies and ideas converging that will completely reshape the economic landscape on a mass scale in the very near future. I call these technologies Beast-Tech. Beast-Tech is any technology, that can be utilized to track men and woman from every sector of earth. In essence it is the operational technologies that make the Biblical Mark of the Beast possible. Hence the name Beast-Tech.

Beast Tech

The Apostle John was given a prophetic vision that envisioned a world marked by a global superpower capable of controlling human-kind like animals. This verse, speaking of the Antichrist in Revelation reads,

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: 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. Revelation 13:17

According to this prophecy there will be a world leader capable of forcing both rich and poor to mark themselves with the name of a world leader that also has certain numbers attached to it. This mark is so powerful that it can literally cut you off from acquiring your basic sustenance to live. Home, food, protection, freedom to travel, access to all of the societal perks gone in an instant if you don't accept this mark. These words in the Book of Revelation have captivated many minds. Only recently, as of 20 years have we started seeing a convergence of technologies and global networking that can now make this tech an actualized possibility.

Before we begin many people have speculated that the Mark of the Beast must be the RFID chip. On that I tend to disagree and have written on that in the past in an article called Why the Implantable RFID Chip is Not the Mark of the Beast for the curious.

What I think the Mark is falls more in line with Augmented Reality Technologies in conjunction with a truly digital currency linked to a socialist nightmare called the Universal Basic Income.

 

The Universal Basic Income

Now in a recent speech by Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, he laid out what is in my opinion a shared elitists blueprint towards the implementation of the Mark of the Beast. In the speech he hit on this concept called a Universal Basic Income (UBI). He also mentioned things such as universal healthcare, DNA sharing, universal electronic voting, and universal childcare which equally fit into the grand vision of the technological culture of the Beast system.

Listen and watch Zuckerberg for yourself.

"We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure that everyone has a cushion to try new ideas," Zuckerberg said at his Harvard commencement address Thursday. (CNN)

If you can get through the awkwardness, what you realize is he is selling Harvard grads on a vision of socialism that dwarfs anything we have seen in the last century.

This UBI "cushion" as termed by Zuckerberg is being constructed and endorsed by men like Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk at Tesla and futurists like Ray Kurzweil at Google as we speak. In fact there is a big list of big players pushing for this right now.

"An increasing number of high-profile Silicon Valley executives are endorsing universal basic income (UBI), a system in which everyone receives a standard amount of money just for being alive.

On the one hand, it's a way to reduce poverty, but tech folks also see it as a way to solve the growing problem of robot automation. That issue hits close to home for many of them, because they are the ones largely driving this robot revolution."(Business Insider)

This is not a pie in the sky dream, even the World Economic Forum is pushing it,

The WEF writes,

"Consider for a moment that from this day forward, on the first day of every month, around $1,000 is deposited into your bank account – because you are a citizen. This income is independent of every other source of income and guarantees you a monthly starting salary above the poverty line for the rest of your life.

What do you do? Possibly of more importance, what don’t you do? How does this firm foundation of economic security and positive freedom affect your present and future decisions, from the work you choose to the relationships you maintain, to the risks you take?" (WE Forum)

If the World Economic Forum is pushing this it means this whole idea is originating from the UN and above, these corporations such as Facebook and Google are simply the spokes-people tasked with the big sell. Hence the propaganda that is being put out currently in regards to the UBI. On top of all this, if you can believe it, Finland is even experimenting with this UBI concept right now,

"Finland's experimental scheme to provide its citizens with a basic income, regardless of employment, launched earlier this week.

The two-year pilot scheme will provide 2,000 unemployed Finnish citizens, aged between 25 and 58, with a monthly basic income of 560 euros ($581.48) that will replace their other social benefits.

These citizens will continue to receive the basic income even if they find work." (CNBC)

 

 

So we have to ask what exactly is this system that is being proposed and how on earth do they intend on transitioning a Global World Product (GWP) of $107 Trillion into a digital currency that is accessible to everyone in the world making it easy for the average person to conduct daily transactions. How they would do this you ask? Well have you ever heard of Bitcoin and the Blockchain?

 

Blockchain and Cryptocurrency

I am sure many reading this are already familiar with Bitcoin, but do you know how it actually works? Here is a great video showing the concepts behind the Blockchain infrastructure that allows applications of all types to utilize this fascinating technology, including Bitcoin which has now reached an amazing price of $2900 each.

Video on the Basics of the Blockchain

Now to be honest I have always been skeptical of Bitcoin, the reason being A) It is a fully digital currency and B) because the creator of Bitcoin is unknown. These two points are very important, we know that a universal currency and digital currency is a real possibility of fulfilling the "Buy and Sell" part of the Mark of the Beast  prophecy. It is universal, it isn't tied to real assets, but digital ones and if governments get involved and even the UN then we know something is up. Well guess what something is up, but first let's look at the origin of Bitcoin and the Blockchain.

Supposedly the creator is Satoshi Nakamoto, who according to wikipedia, is just a pen name,

"Satoshi Nakamoto is the name used by the unknown person or persons who designed bitcoin and created its original reference implementation.[1] As a part of the implementation, he also devised the first blockchain database. In the process he was the first to solve the double spending problem for digital currency. He was active in the development of bitcoin up until December 2010." (Wikipedia)

As of now there are many candidates who the media has fingered as the real creator, but the real identity has yet to be verified. So in reality the creator of the Blockchain and Bitcoin could either be some international hacker, or it could very well be the NSA or some other crypto government agency seeking to create a organic adoption of the world's first digital currency. I truly believe that the later is highly possible. The fact that it was adopted by activists and libertarian/anarchist hackers early on as a means to bypass the global banking infrastructure could very well be exactly what global entities designed it to be. Knowing that any suggested global currency would be outright rejected by the activists and hackers first it was ingenious to release it as a disrupting technology that was seized upon by this very skeptical community. This is not a new conspiracy theory, there is a group called the CIA project that is making this claim,

"Another evidence the group is trying to bring is related to the source code of the digital currency.

It says the common programme used by most cryptocurrencies to create secure keys is suspected to be back-doored by the NSA, citing a "recent WikiLeaks document".

Bitcoin did not use the most popular programme to create secure keys, and the fact shows that the NSA already had full information about bitcoin, according to the group.

"While bitcoin believers portray bitcoin as a new decentralised currency, the command structure of bitcoin core development is 100% centralised," CIA Project says.

The claim could be refuted as bitcoin's source code is open source, and therefore the NSA need not put a back door in the code. The programme that bitcoin uses to secure transactions, SHA-256, is created by the NSA. The open source programme is said to be one of the most secure algorithms in the world." (IBTimes)

This whole thing could be a vast conspiracy to sucker the hacker communities into adopting a currency that will inevitably be the backbone of a one world economic system. While the CIA Project people are raising the alarm in regards to the possibility it is a Trojan horse, economists are predicting that as we enter into 2017 governments will be gobbling up bitcoins like they would gold or silver as a reserve. The CEO of a company that utilizes the Blockchain technology to protect identies has recently made this prediction,

"Although no country has made any official statement regarding this, Bitcoin’s amazing performance throughout 2016 may cause governments to acquire small portions of the cryptocurrency as a store of value. If one country starts doing so, Bitcoin reserves could become a global practice as no government would want to be left high and dry with its paper notes.

Lingham writes,

Imagine if China started buying up large amounts of Bitcoin — would the rest of the world governments stand idly by and watch? I don’t think so — so my prediction here is that by 2017, governments will become the largest buyers of Bitcoin, pushing the price up to new highs." (Bitconist.com)

Then you couple this realization with the fact the UN is now experimenting with the Blockchain and even recommending the adoption of Bitcoin type Cryptocurrencies makes all this a bit surreal.

"The United Nations (UN) is in the final stages of what could be one of the most epic blockchain projects of all time.

After successfully using the ethereum blockchain to transmit Pakistani rupees to 100 people earlier this year, the UN's World Food Program (WFP) is arranging extra security to ensure it safely executes the next stage of its work.

A pilot test, scheduled to begin in Jordan on 1st May, will see the WFP sending an unspecified number of dinars to more than 10,000 recipients in need of financial support and extra food, with the goal of expanding the number of recipients to 500,000 people by 2018.

To protect the privacy of the recipients, the exact amount to be dispersed is not being revealed. But the technology being developed is part of an even bigger push to make the UN's services so resilient that they could survive even the destruction of the UN itself." (Coindesk)

As you can see between these two things a Universal Basic Income and also the adoption of Cryptocurrency by governments and even the UN is a major tell as to what this really is all about. I have no doubt that these two things will converge in the near future. How? I am not exactly sure. It could be a manufactured global crisis it could be something they just ease us into, but one thing is for sure this is being discussed currently. In fact the Bitcoin enthusiasts are already dreaming up ways in which Bitcoin and the Blockchain can be utilized as a Universal Basic Income.

"Imagine needing to ensure the safe delivery of $1,000 to every individual on Earth. Our current system, which manages to "lose track" of 2.3 trillion dollars, is not up for the task," said Greg Slepak, developer for the okTurtles Foundation, which works on a handful of power-distributing internet projects based on blockchain technology.

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, on the other hand, can be programmed to carry out certain tasks—say, periodically pay dividends to all of its members. This makes can makes welfare payments much cheaper. "Basic income, and especially universal basic income, requires a secure, tamper-proof ledger that can be audited by anyone to ensure the safe delivery of funds," Slepak said. And that's one thing cryptocurrencies provide." (Motherboard)

Conclusion

So this is why I am skeptical of these upcoming technologies and label them as Beast-Tech. There is something driving this push that is beyond grassroot acceptance. As tempting as it would be to get into Bitcoin, you have to ask is it a good thing to be an early adopter of this Beast-Tech? Especially given where it is all headed?

We as Christians have to look through the benefits and the possibilities to see how these technologies can be used to further drive humanity into a system of slavery. The idea of a Universal Basic Income is socialism on steroids. If we have learned anything it is welfare just makes lazy people even lazier as they come to expect, and rely on capital injections to sustain their lives. The Bible literally commands us to work 2 Thessalonians 3:10. I am inclined to always believe the Bible on these issues.

For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10
