the last part of the Antichrist's
reign, this 3-1/2 year period, people won't be using paper money anymore.
The Antichrist One
World Government will set up
a One-World-Credit System, probably through the internet,
where all members of the System who choose to worship the Antichrist instead
of Jesus, will either be "branded" with their own credit number,
or injected with their own sub-skin (Personal Identification
Number) PIN-Chip-Implant, in their "right
hands or foreheads!"
The Antichrist government will use this new credit system to try to force everybody to either worship the Antichrist or starve to death, because no one will be able to buy or sell anymore without the "mark, or the name of the Beast, or the number of his name!"--Of the Antichrist! It says that the "number of the Beast...is the number of a man!" In other words, it will probably be an international PIN- or I.D.-number, that will become obligatory! People will either be branded with it, on or under the skin as an invisible Barcode, or be injected with an injectable chip--pre-programmed with other personal information, to make a foolproof Identification system that cannot be falsified, stolen or lost!
But God's people will refuse to worship him and along with many millions of others will refuse to be branded like dumb cattle or receive his Mark in their hands or foreheads! Instead the Lord will take care of us, even if He has to supernaturally drop bread from Heaven to feed us! Rev.12:14
The "Image of the Beast" will probably be some kind of highly sophisticated super computerised tele-communications- & Internet-system for this worldwide A.C. government, as it will speak and somehow even cause those who refuse to worship it, to be executed! It may perhaps even be in the form of some robot or statue, as it will be "placed" and "stand" within the "Holy place"--the Temple area in Jerusalem! THEN will begin the final Great Tribulation & Persecution!
"And he (the
False Prophet) causes
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.
Here is wisdom.
Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for
it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred
& sixty-six." Rev.13:15-18
