“Revelation tells us that the Antichrist will use a mark for economic reasons” Elder Athanasios (Mitilinaios).
I have long asserted, based on my reading of various saints and elders, that the whole current c-19 “crisis” is being used to advance underlying sinister agendas.
At current, riding on the fear-mongering of the media and various government and non-government powers, we are witnessing the serious proposal of “c-19 passports.” Of course, just more measures to keep everyone “safe.”
In basic, such passports propose to give a person a “green” clearance if they receive the c-19 vaxxination or, for now, test negative for c-19. The long term implications are multifaceted and numerous. I believe the ability to simply test would be soon removed and the stipulation would be reduced to – get the injection.
Here is an interesting video in which a Mrs. Wolf, CEO of Daily Cloud, gives a “tech” explanation of the potential uses of the proposed digital passports.
She, and many others, makes, what seems to be, the valid comparison to the current “social credit” system in China. It does seem that the end goal is something very similar; of course it has to be introduced under seemingly benevolent reasons – “we just care about people’s health!” “If you don’t get it you want grandma to die!”
The mentality cultivated around mask wearing is now being transferred to the vaxx. “You need to wear a mask to protect your neighbor” is now becoming “You need to get the vaxx to protect your neighbor.” “If everyone wears a mask …” is now “if everyone gets the vaxx we can return to normal life.” Take this video from a large medical organization as a case in point. It exemplifies the propaganda.
I have pointed out a number of times, the mentalities around the c-19 crisis are a form of social programming and psychological manipulation.
Many people have accepted complete inversions – healthy people are a potential threat to health; masked people are to be trusted, unmasked people are not, to point out just a few.
One of the primary goals of the c-19 events is to usher in what is referred to as the “new normal.” In basic the “new normal” is a more advanced technocratic form of rule. In such a system it is vital to manage and control every aspect of a person’s life. This is where the current “passports” come in to play.
Under such circumstances the reality will be if you do not receive the c-19 injection you will not receive the “green” status and thus will not be able to participate in numerous areas of “everyday” life.
It is odd that I have not come across many major Christian voice speaking against this. Sadly, it seems that many are simply encouraging people to just get the injection. I thus assume that they will think it fine and for the “greater good” to have such passports. After all, are passport really such a large step from the physical act of people being required to sign into church? Would scanning in with a QC code, or such, really be too much of a jump? It just makes signing in all the easier after all! The pump has been primed.
Many Christians have already sold out completely to the current narrative and agenda and are in fact active facilitators thereof. Thus, as they have found it “virtuous” to wear a mask, it seems very possible they will find the passports just as much so. “I have a c-19 passport because I care for my neighbor and you are a selfish bastard if you don’t have one!” “Jesus would get a c-19 passport for love of neighbor!”
At the base of the current passport proposal is an economic form of control. No inject – no participation in society. It seems that it will be gradual. At first, entertainment events – sports, music, movies, and such. Ah, I could do without this! Then travel – planes, trains, buses. Hummm …. Then major corporations at which the majority of Americans (and other nations) get food and various stuff. No mask no entry becomes no passport no entry.
Is it a fated scenario? No. Yet it is a very real possible scenario which is on our very doorstep. There is no “conspiracy theory” here in the least. It is very much in the works. I really hope that things turn around and my feeble warnings are proven wrong.
Here I would like to refer the reader to a previous article, “A Saint, Prophecies, Globalism, and the Antichrist.” In this article I noted how the beloved modern saint, Paisios, teaches that the system of the Antichrist will have a technological means by which to exclude people. I first touch on these themes in an article called, “The Hand of the Beast. This current article is to some degree a continuation of the themes established in the aforementioned articles. If a person is considered a “dissenter” then there will be a way by which to completely exclude him from participation in society. We live in a time in which such a thing is a total possibility.
Moreover it should be considered that there is a push to digitize currency. Also in the same vein is the idea of a Universal Basic Income. Once monetary modes are completely digitized then the mechanisms of control will be even greater. All possibility to store a physical mode of money will be gone. It is not too hard to delete the virtual digits of dissenters.
I point out in the above referenced article that saints warn us of these constructs.
Here I will add to those words by relating what Elder Athanasios also teaches. The reader will note that the elders and saints have a strong unity of voice on this issue. It seems we should take them very seriously.
Clearly what the elder will call the “seal of the Antichrist” has a deep spiritual dimension. The point here is not that specific aspect but rather the physical effects, manifestations, and ramifications, which are equally real.
The elder teaches, “It is worth noting that the aim of the seal of the Antichrist will be to cut off the livelihood of the faithful, and one way to succeed in this will be through economic sanctions” (from the five volume set study on Revelation, Vol 2, pg 214. After all subsequent quotes just the volume and page number will be noted.)
“The Antichrist will apply economic reforms. He will interfere with people’s finances. By interfering with people’s ability to purchase food, he will be striking at the stomach level, at the belly. He will control the entire financial exchange system. Yes, people will be able to buy and sell, but not without the new exchange system. The non-conformist will go to the bank, but he will not be able to withdraw or deposit money without his having been entered into this new financial system” (Vol 2, pg. 215).
The current proposal and prospects of the c-19 passports carry many similarities to the words of the elder. Is the current possibility of a “passport” the seal of the Antichrist? Most likely not the seal, but it clearly is in the spirit of such a seal. It will but clear the ground even more for the final coming of the seal.
The current passport proposal is a clear method of compulsion to pressure people into receiving exactly what the system wants them to receive. It is clearly a demonic initiative.
The elder instructs further, “No group will be excluded” – if a person reads the numerous documents from globalist institutions, one will note the repetition of the phrase “no one left behind” – “The direct ultimatum of demanding that honor be rendered to the image of the Antichrist under threat of death will be coupled with an indirect method of compulsion, which is of an economic nature” (Vol 3, pg. 312).
The spirit of Antichrist uses exclusion from the social sphere as a means to pressure people into total compliance. This is precisely the spirit behind the current passports. Thus, I believe it safe to deduce that the current c-19 passport proposals are of an Antichrist spirit.
The elder informs us, “You will be able to buy and sell. You will be able to go to the supermarket or the gas station, and you will be able to transact – as long as you have this mark, this seal, which will eventually be physically placed on your hand or forehead.” It is of profit to note that this technology of implanting technology in the skin, in which is stored all personal information, is a reality today. The digital passports seem to be serving the purpose of preparing people for such things. It will be simple. “We no longer accept and scan your smartphone, you must have the implant.” Once the system is in place, the movement from one to the other will be easy.
The elder continues, “If you accept this mark, you can buy whatever you want, whatever your heart desires. If you do not have it, then you cannot pay for anything; so you cannot be a shopper. You can no longer be a consumer. The same will hold true for a business operator. You produce and market a product. You will not be able to sell your product unless you have the mark of the Antichrist. Needless to say, it is a powerful trial, a powerful spiritual siege. I don’t know how people will react or cope with this horrible reality of the days of the Antichrist” (Vol 3, pg 313).
The current system of globalism is striving, in the spirit of antichrist, to pressure everyone into its ways. The whole c-19 crisis is being exploited in an attempt to implement a new era, a new normal, in which only those approved by the system will be able to be active. It seeks that everyone be absorbed into the new normal (cf. Rev. 13:16). I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, in this emerging age of the “new normal” there will be no place for Jesus Christ as Lord God and Savior.
Yet, let those who wish to be faithful to Christ the Lord not lose heart. Yes, if agendas continue on their current paths then things will be very difficult. “You will be hated by all men for My Name’s sake, but he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matt. 10:22).
The elder speaks to us these words of encouragement, “Only people who truly receive the uncreated energy of the holy cross will be able to stand” (Vol. 2, pg. 213). For the sign, the seal, of the Cross is what will preserve those who desire to remain faithful to the Lord. As it was with our Lord, so shall it be with those who follow Him – He was despised and rejected. The Antichrist spirit is constructing a system that will despise and reject anyone who does not receive it, anyone who holds to the Truth of Jesus Christ above anything the world has to offer. Thus, the true Christian will begin to taste of the cup of the Lord. In the end of time he must be ready to suffer complete rejection by the fallen system of this world. A system which is doomed to obliteration.
Let us seek above all else to receive the seal of the Cross and to have our name written in the book of life.
