‘Mark Of The Beast?’ | Microchipping Employees Raises Apocalyptic Questions

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on September 18, 2017

The apocalyptic “mark of the beast” prophecy in the Bible makes some wary of a Wisconsin company’s recent decision to embed microchips into the hands of willing employees.

The end times account in the New Testament’s Book of Revelation warns believers about being marked on the right hand and the forehead by the Antichrist.

But inserting rice-sized microchips under the skin of Three Square Market employees does not fulfill the prophecy, said Chris Vlachos, a New Testament professor at Wheaton College in Chicago.

“I think that this is more of a fulfillment of end times novels and movies than the Book of Revelation itself,” Vlachos said.

Earlier this week Three Square Market, the Wisconsin firm that makes cafeteria kiosks to replace vending machines, brought in a tattoo artist to embed microchips into the 40 employees that volunteered.

The chips, which are not equipped with GPS tracking abilities, replace access cards and the need to log on to corporate computers. The company sees them as a way to increase convenience, and would like to see payments go cashless.

Globalism as well as advancements in technologies, like bar codes and credit cards, periodically trigger “mark of the beast” concerns for those who take seriously the prophecy, which talks of a one government world and a cashless society.

Randall Balmer, the chair of the religion department at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, said the Book of Revelation presents a real challenge for those like evangelical Christians who take the Bible seriously and often try to interpret it literally.

“A lot of evangelicals certainly take the Book of Revelation seriously. They try to understand it,” said Balmer, who is an Episcopal priest but grew up in an evangelical Christian family. “This is a source of real fascination for a lot of people, but it’s also kind of a parlor game.”

Vlachos said popular media often drives people’s views.

“The majority of people are getting their notions on this issue from movies and novels rather than the Book of Revelation and apocalyptic genre material in the Old and New Testament,” Vlachos said.

Reading the Book of Revelation is complex, said Vlachos, who teaches a class on it. The first chapter points out that some of it is meant to be taken symbolically.

But even if a believer interprets the entire text literally, Vlachos said the “mark of the beast” verses specifically mention two key details.

“Taking the mark goes hand in hand with the conscience decision of publicly pledging ones allegiance or loyalty to the beast and worshiping his image,” Vlachos said.

The mark is not a random number either. It always names the Antichrist, either numerically or alphabetically.

“I often say to my students, ‘No name, no worries,'” Vlachos said.

While he doesn’t think technologies like microchipping are a sign of end times, Vlachos doesn’t rule out that they could be one of the precursors, like birth pangs, preceding the end that Jesus talked about with his disciples. It’s fine to put them on the back burner and focus on clear issues like an allegiance to Jesus.

“I call it like an apocalyptic inoculation,” Vlachos said. “The more Christ-like, the less we’ll be duped by Antichrist.”

Balmer can see why people connect mircochipping and the prophecy.

“It may not be the ‘mark of the beast,’ but it certainly is a slippery slope,” Balmer said. “I think we should be cautious about allowing that measure of control or surveillance into our lives.”

Concerns about the “mark of the beast” in the workplace have made their way into the U.S. court system, too.

A West Virginia coal miner’s belief in the “mark of the beast” won him more than half a million dollars in a workplace discrimination case. An appeals court recently affirmed the federal court’s 2015 decision.

Beverly R. Butcher Jr., an evangelical Christian and minister, worked for decades in a mine owned by Consol Energy but was forced to retire when the company refused to accommodate his religious objection to its newly implemented biometric hand scanner, court documents say.

The scanner tracked employee attendance and hours worked by assigning a number to an image of a worker’s hand. Citing the Book of Revelation, Butcher feared the could link him to the Antichrist.

Other “mark of the beast” cases have made there way into the court system, but they’re not common, said Howard Friedman, who writes the Religion Clause blog about church and state legal issues. Religious workplace cases more often focus on employee clothing and work schedule accommodations.

Friedman, who also is an emeritus law professor at the University of Toledo, doesn’t anticipate the Wisconsin company’s microchipping effort will end up before a judge.

“As long as they continue to make this voluntary, there isn’t going to be much of a legal confrontation,” Friedman said.

Could We See The Antichrist This Month?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 3, 2016

God’s word the Bible clearly identifies the Antichrist

— Berlin: ‘Its a Synagogue, Church, and Mosque All In One’

— Satanists in the US to Help Muslims

— It’s The 666

The stories:

Berlin: ‘Its a Synagogue, Church, and Mosque All In One’

SatOneWorldReligion

Joint house of prayer for Muslims, Jews, and Christians to be built in Berlin.

An interfaith group is laying the groundwork for what will likely be the world’s first ever joint house of prayer.

The center of worship, which will be called the “House of One,” will combine simultaneous Jewish, Muslim, and Christian prayer services.

The House of One is planned to be built on the site of Berlin’s first church, the Petrikirche.

Do not be associates with those who are unbelievers; for what partnership has righteousness with evil, or what intimacy has light with darkness?„ [2 Corinthians 6:14]

Satanists in Two US States Offer Muslims Helping Hand

SatanIslam

If there is anyone in the San Jose region who is Muslim and afraid to leave their home out of fear for some kind of backlash, don’t hesitate to reach out to us,” the San Jose, California chapter of the Satanic Temple extended its hands.

Both chapters of the Satanic Temple have received a great deal of support and appreciation from Muslims.

I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. – [Psalm 37:35]

Indeed, satanists across the world have infiltrated every part of life and are now revealing themselves by publicly supporting Muslims. Not a surprise, in fact, it’s so awesome to watch all of these groups prove everything ever said about them right in front of our own very eyes — evil birds of a feather flocking together.

And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: ‘The words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword. I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. [Rev 2:12-13]

The Antichrist is said to rule from Pergamum (Revelation 2:12-13), which Christ proclaimed would be the future seat of Satan. This is on the sides of the northern lands (Asia Minor / Turkey).

What do we have in Berlin? The Pergamum Museum. Angela wicked Merkel who yesterday chose to stay absent from the Bundestag vote on the Armenian genocide, lives in front of this satanic altar. Merkel has already visited Turkey this year five times in eight months – like no other head of state. We will follow this relationship very closely.

Slowly but gradually, the world is waking up, and Satan is coming out of the bottomless pit, raising his hands to tell us who and where he is. Satan is against us, but God is for us, and God is bigger than Satan — way bigger. The Lord is already moving His pieces on the chessboard as Satan moves his. In the end, let’s be sure God will triumph.

666 is Out There

Let’s follow the next couple of days attentively and carefully: Isn’t it very Interesting, this year’s Muslim ‘holy’ month of Ramadan begins on 6.6.2016 (666) ?. According to Muslims, the Mahdi is supposed to come during Ramadan. Most Muslims when they speak of their holy prophet, Imam Mahdi they use the term occultation – they believe the Mahdi is the Twelfth Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi who will return from his present state of “hiding”. Satan’s demons operate best in the dark, in hidden places where they go undetected. It is interesting that the start of their holy month is in conjunction with a occultation of Venus

Let’s See Some Comparison Between The Biblical Antichrist And The Mahdi

The Antichrist

Most people who haven’t even read the Bible have heard of the man known popularly as “The Antichrist.” Simply put, according to the Bible, the Antichrist will be Satan’s primary human agent on the earth in the last-days. Interestingly, in the Bible, the Antichrist is actually only referred to once by that specific name (1 John 2:18). Using other names however, there are numerous references to the Antichrist found throughout the Bible. Some of the various names that Scripture assigns to the Antichrist are “the Beast” (Revelation 13:4), “the abomination that causes desolation” (Matthew 24:15), “the desolator” (Daniel 9:27), “the man of sin,” “the man of lawlessness,” “the son of destruction” (2 Thessalonians 2) “the little horn” (Daniel 7:8), “the Assyrian” (Micah 5:5, Isaiah 10:5,14:25), “the oppressor’, “the king of Babylon” (Isaiah 14) and even the mysterious “Gog” (Ezekiel 38:1, Revelation 20:7). There are several other names that Scripture uses to refer to the Antichrist as well.

Here are the primary descriptions and actions that define just who the Antichrist is according to the Bible. The similarities between the Antichrist and the Mahdi are obvious:

I stumbled upon this book written by Joel Richardson that does an exhaustive comparison of the Christian beliefs about the Antichrist and Muslims belief of their messiah called Al-Mahdi. The similarities are very close and the book offers a strong case that Islam is the one world religion spoken of in the Revelation.

Interestingly, Joel Richardson in his book “The Islamic Anti-Christ” notes offers, in chapter 18, a summation of comparisons between the Biblical and Islamic narratives of the end-times.

Bible: The Antichrist is an unparalleled political, military and religious leader that will that emerge in the last-days.

Islam: The Mahdi is an unparalleled political, military and religious leader that will emerge in the last-days.

Bible: the False Prophet is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge in the last-days who will support the Antichrist.

Islam: the Muslim Jesus is a secondary prominent figure that will emerge in the last-days to support the Mahdi.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet together will have a powerful army that will do great damage to the earth in an effort to subdue every nation and dominate the World.

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will have a powerful army that will attempt to control every nation of the earth and dominate the World.

Bible: The False Prophet is described essentially as a dragon in lamb’s clothing.

Islam: The Muslim Jesus literally comes bearing the name of the one that the world knows as “The Lamb of God: Jesus Christ.” Yet the Muslim Jesus comes to murder all those who do not submit to Islam.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet establish a New World Order.

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus establish a New World Order.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet institute new laws for the whole earth.

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus institute Islamic law all over the earth.

Bible: The Antichrist is said to “change the times.”

Islam: It is quite certain that if the Mahdi established Islam all over the earth, he would discontinue the use of Saturday and Sunday as the weekend or days of rest but rather Friday, the holy day of Islam. Also, he would most certainly eliminate the Gregorian calendar (A.D.), and replace it with the Islamic calendar (A. H.) as is used in every Islamic country.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will both be powerful religious leaders who will attempt to institute a universal world religion.

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will institute Islam as the only religion in the earth.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will execute anyone who does not submit to their world religion.

Islam: Likewise, the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will execute anyone who does not submit to Islam.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will specifically use beheading as the primary means of execution for non-conformists.

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will use the Islamic practice of beheading for executions.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will have a specific agenda to kill as many Jews as possible.

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will kill as many Jews as is possible until only a few are left hiding behind rocks and trees.

Bible: The Antichrist and the False Prophet will attack to conquer and seize Jerusalem.

Islam: The Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus will attack to re-conquer and seize Jerusalem for Islam.

Bible: The Antichrist will set himself up in the Jewish temple as his seat of authority.

Islam: The Mahdi will establish the Islamic Caliphate from Jerusalem.

Bible: The False Prophet is said to do many miracles to deceive as many as possible into supporting the Antichrist.

Islam: The Mahdi himself is said to control the weather and the crops. His face is said to glow. We can also assume that since Jesus is viewed as having been empowered by Allah to work miracles when he was here on earth the first time, he will most likely be expected to continue to do so when he returns.

Bible: The Antichrist is described as riding on a white horse in the Book of Revelation

Islam: The Mahdi is described as riding on a white horse (ironically from the same verse).

Bible: The Antichrist is said to make a peace treaty with Israel for seven years.

Islam: The Mahdi is said to make a peace treaty through a Jew (specifically a Levite) for exactly seven years.

Bible: Jesus the Jewish Messiah will return to defend the Jews in Israel from a military attack from a vast coalition of nations led by the Antichrist and the False Prophet.

Islam: The Dajjal, the Islamic Antichrist will gain a great Jewish following and claim to be Jesus Christ and fight against the Mahdi and the Muslim Jesus.

Bible: The Antichrist spirit specifically denies the most unique and central doctrines of Christianity, namely the trinity, the incarnation and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the cross.

Islam: Islam doctrinally and spiritually specifically denies the most unique and central doctrines of Christianity, namely the trinity, the incarnation and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the cross.

Bible: The primary warning of Jesus and the Apostle Paul was to warn Christians of the abundance of deceit and deception in the last-days.

Islam: Islam is perhaps the only religion in the earth that practices deceit as one of its tools to assist its own ascendancy. It actually has a specific doctrine which allows and even calls for deception to be used to achieve its desired end.

Bible: The specific nations pictured in the Bible as being part of the final empire of the Antichrist are all Islamic nations.

Islam: All Muslims are commanded to give their allegiance to The Mahdi as the final Caliph and Imam (leader) of Islam.

Bible: From the Bible and History we learn that the final Antichrist empire will be a revived version of the Empire that succeeds the Roman Empire

Islam: The Empire that succeeded the Roman/Byzantine Empire was the Islamic Ottoman Empire.

Bible: When Antichrist emerges, there will already be some form of system in place that will be poised to receive him as a Savior and to give allegiance to him.

Islam is already the second largest religion and will at present growth rates become the largest religion within a few decades. Islam is awaiting the coming of the Mahdi with a universal anticipation.
