The mark of the beast!

2013-04-21 09:19

After His resurrection Yeshua spend a further 40 days (Acts 1:3) with His disciples and taught them more about the Kingdom of God. In the Book of Acts (1:6) the following question is put to him: ‘Will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?’ His response to His friends (John 15:15) is this (Acts 1:7): ‘It is not for you to know the times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.’

There are two broad schools of thought around the interpretation of where this mark is received.  Some believe that we should interpret it literally. According to this theory some form of technology will be implanted into the hands or foreheads. In an age where technological capabilities are leaping forward on a year to year basis, this argument does not sound unreasonable. Also, we have also reached a stage where trans-humanism is gaining considerable momentum. What is trans-humanism? ‘Transhumanism (H+) is an international intellectual and cultural movement that affirms that possibility and desirability of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to great enhance human intellectual, physical and psychological capacities. They predict that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves with such great expanded abilities as to merit the label ‘post-human.’ (Source: Wikipedia). This is becoming an increasingly popular movie theme (Hanna, Splice). The terminology is obviously modern but the concept is not new at all. The altering of genetic material dates back to the times of Genesis 6: 2: ‘that the sons of God (fallen ones) saw the daughters of men that they were beautiful and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.’ The result of these mixing of these species is called ‘nephilim’ translated as ‘giants’ into English, because of their size and strength.

So out of these structures will arise ‘a man of sin’ or ‘antichrist’ which will impose an global economic system which will control trading (buy and sell) which explains the need for a new or one world order.
