He has his reasons and outlines them for us in the last podcast below. The first pos cast is only 8 min. You definitely need to watch it. So what are your thoughts as a Bible believer?
Revelation 13:17 and [he decrees] that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, [either] the name of the beast or the number of his name. (NASB2020)
For my part, I would say that we are not there yet. So what would it take to get there? Well consider: if one currency were to come out in the name of the CCP OR A NUMBER ASSOCIATED WITH THAT NAME; or even the name of some other entity who would establish themselves as The World Government; such as The United Nations, then we would need to consider their demand that everyone must receive their chip in order to buy or sell on the open market as a fulfillment of that verse. But even then, until there would accompany that demand another demand, which would require worship of a world leader we could not conclude that we were in the Biblical time of the Beast of Revelation.
Certainly, things today are becoming more clear to us as to just what the Revelation actually means, and requires of us as believers.
So let’s say that everyone is required to have an implant in order to buy or sell and in order to have a bank account, but there is no requirement to worship any man or entity associated with that chip. Certainly, the chip may be a part of the beast system, but until worship is required one is not denouncing Jesus, simply by having a Digital bank account even if is records were to be located in the back of the hand.
Let us explore What Jesus told us about the judgment of the nations. He will separate the sheep from the goats; placing them on His right and left. This is after His return, so every man who was His child and alive during the Tribulation has been raptured and with that event made to be immortal.
Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with Him for a thousand years. (NASB2020)
So these sheep and goats are not a part of this resurrection event. For the resurrection is followed by the rapture of those who are alive and remain. These sheep and goats are remaining as mortals yet to be judged. If they had accepted the mark of the beast and worshiped the beast; then they would have already been killed at Jesus coming.
Revelation 19:21 And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh. (NASB2020)
Verse 20 tells us what happens to the beast and false prophet, who deceived these who are killed in Vs 21.
So how did these sheep and goats of Matt 25 escape that judgment? It would seem that since the sheep were able to feed and cloth Jesus brethren during a time when they were in need of such, that these sheep must have had access to such food and clothing, yet, I think that it must be understood that they had not committed worship to this beast.
But here is our dilemma. These sheep were possibly uninformed about the receiving of the mark, but you and I as believers are not. So what if next month the United States Government cancels out all fiat currency and places it in your own Digital account, and then tells you that in order to access it you must have a chip, and that it can be implanted in your hand or used in card form. Is that the mark of the beast? Answer: no. It is the advancement in the technology that must come about in order for the beast system to implement their still future plan when they do arrive.
When Christian’s advertise otherwise they open themselves up to the charge of false prophets.
If you are here on earth when a decree is given to receive something on your person in order to buy or sell and that you must also worship the leader in order to receive that something; then beware.
