NEWS UPDATE - 18th November 2020

We were told in Testimonies to the Churches, Vol.9, p.11, that "great changes" were to take place in this world and that "the final movements will be rapid ones." Have we seen rapid movements take place this year? Take a look at what the CEO of Microsoft said back in April this year:

"We've seen two years worth of digital transformation in two months. From remote teamwork and learning, to sales and customer service, to critical cloud infrastructure and security-we are working alongside customers every day to help them adapt and stay open for business in a world of remote everything." (source)

"Two years worth of digital transformation in two months"

Do you see the significance of this? Two years of transformation in just two months! That is incredible. I hope you can see just how quickly things can move in the last days, just as we were told - "the final movements will be RAPID ones." The push to digitize everything has become massive, from digitizing money to digitizing our identities. The cashless society has been brought forward at a massive pace this year and we are now seeing moves to give people 'digital health passports' to enable us to continue travelling and working and interact socially. Look how the following article puts it:

"In what is a natural next step, digital identities are being used to help people return to normal life without fear of virus transmission. With one eye on the economy and the potential fall-out post-COVID-19, this has never been more critical. Increasingly, digital identities are being tied to a new concept called a health passport. Simply put, a health passport is presentable proof of health - whether it be their current health status, if the individual has antibodies, or has had the vaccine." (source)

Amazingly they call it the 'Passport to Freedom.' I call it the passport to control and tyranny. They say that digital identities are the 'natural next step.' Can you see why this 'virus' was brought about? It is to move us into a digital world, where everything comes under government control. And if you take a look at our UN 2030 AGENDA AND THE RETURN OF JESUS page, you will see why rapid movements are now taking place. But what is the end goal? Revelation 13 gives us the answer:

Revelation 13:16-17 ...'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.'

This is the end goal friends - the enforcement of the mark of the beast. Satan is seeking to gain control over our lives, over our money and everything we do, in order to force us to take the mark of the beast. And those of us who don't accept the mark, with money and everything becoming digital they will be able to simply stop us from buying and selling at the press of a button! But we must understand that these things like the cashless society and digital ID's are TOOLS being put in place ready for the enforcement of the mark of the beast. In of themselves they are NOT the mark and so many people are deceived regarding this issue. Just because Revelation 13 says the word 'mark' which appears to mean a literal mark, doesn't mean it will be.

What is it the mark of? THE BEAST! Guess what this word 'beast' is in the original Greek? Yes, you guessed it - a beast!

I hope you see the significance of the above. Are we going to be forced to take the mark of an animal? Of course not. A beast in Bible prophecy is a kingdom (Daniel 7:23). It is symbolic. The beast is symbolic, so the mark is also a symbolic mark, not a literal one. So let me give you a clue as to what the mark of the beast is all about:

Revelation 13:4,8,12,15,16 ...'And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast ... And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb ... And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast ... And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 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.'

Revelation 14:6,7,9,10 ...'And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters ... And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God ... And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.'

Do you see a common theme regarding the mark of the beast DECEPTION. And this is an important point people miss regarding the mark of the beast. It will be a massive DECEPTION. But where is the deception in simply forcing a chip or something upon us? No, as you can see, this is all to do with worship - who we give our worship and allegiance to. And to truly understand what the mark of the beast is, we must understand WHO the beast is to know what its mark is going to be. Now instead of making this page very, very long, I will simply direct you to some of our study pages to find this out. The beast whose mark is going to be forced upon the world is the Papal Church of Rome based at the Vatican - see our page WHO IS THE 7 HEADED BEAST OF REVELATION?

So if the beast is the Papacy at the Vatican, then what is the MARK of the Papal Church of Rome? Remember, this mark of the beast deception is all about worship and who we give our allegiance to. And what does the Vatican want enforced around the world? Her SUNDAY REST LAW, in direct opposition to God's commandments and His holy 7th day Sabbath (our Saturday). Please see our page THE MARK IS ALL TO DO WITH WORSHIP for the truth on this.

Friends, we are seeing RAPID developments now in the direction of the enforced mark just as prophesied. And what is the one thing we need to be able to get through this? Well, what does Revelation 13 say we won't be able to do if we refuse Rome's mark? Buy or sell. That means we will not be able to buy any food. We will be persecuted. We will be driven from our jobs and homes. So what is the one thing we need to get through this final test? FAITH. So let us focus now on cultivating a faith that will stand through the coming trial. Let us surrender all to Jesus Christ and be able to say what the apostle Paul said:

Galatians 2:20 ...'I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.'

'The final movements will be rapid ones' - Let us be ready!
