The Mark of the Beast.
The Celestial signs of the last days.
Cryptocurrency.

The mark of the beast, 666, those terms bring about fear in some, it tickles the ears of others, causes much debate, that is for sure.

1TH 4:17, Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.

Harpozo = to be seized, snatched as in someone is snatching or seizing that which they have claim to.

We are to spread the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout this lost and dying world.

“Learn the parable of the FIG TREE; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.”
“So likewise, when you shall see ALL these things, know that it (HIS return) is near, even at the door. Truly I say unto you, this generation shall not pass away, until all these things be fulfilled”.

The reason none of them could have been the generation, that Jesus spoke of, was because they had not witnessed the Sign of the Fig Tree fulfilled.

The reason none of them could have been the generation, that Jesus spoke of, was because they had not witnessed the Sign of the Fig Tree fulfilled.

MAT 24:32-34, Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.

So likewise when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. This generation shall not pass, until all these things be fulfilled.

LUK 13:6-9: A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and looked for fruit, and found none. Then He said to the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree (Israel), and find none: cut it down; why does it use up the ground? And dresser of the vineyard said Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and get it fertilized  And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that you shall cut it down.

MAR 11:12-17: And in the morning, when they came from Bethany, HE was hungry.
And seeing a fig tree far off having leaves, he came to it but found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. May no man ever eat from you again. And HIS disciples heard it. And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and those that sold doves; And He taught, saying, “Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but you have made it a den of thieves.”

MAT 24:32-34: Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.

So is it that the 1948 generation is the generation that will not pass till all things prophesied by Jesus be fulfilled?

No one else was interested in doing GOD’s will, so the LORD used him. GOD will always accomplish HIS sovereign will.

But, now with the new Embassy being in Jerusalem, America’s strength may force the Palestinians to negotiate.

REV 3:10, “Because you have kept the word of My patience, I also will keep you from (OUT OF) the hour of temptation, which shall come upon ALL the world, to test them that dwell upon the earth”.

REV 6:12, I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood.

REV 12:1-2, A great sign appeared in Heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; and she was with child; and she cried out, being in labor and in pain to give birth.

That it one of the theories, that if you don’t get chipped, you won’t be able to buy or sell. This is due to being in a cashless society.

REV 13:16-19, And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides 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. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

SUR 47:4
So when you meet those who disbelieve, strike necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either favor afterwards or ransom them until the war lays down its burdens.

2TH 2:6-7, And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he (Antichrist) will be revealed.
For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he (Holy Spirit) who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.
