We reserve a few minutes each Sunday to discuss current world trends that you’d expect from reading Bible prophecy.
We are futurists. We interpret the unfulfilled prophetic portions of the Book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation, and all other unfulfilled Bible prophecies, as future events occurring in a literal, physical, apocalyptic, and global context.
Biometrics, Artificial Intelligence, cashless commerce, the manipulation of human DNA, global government, the exponential growth of human knowledge, and the rebirth of Israel as a nation are all areas we see corroborating the End Times prophecies of the Bible.
The article I was drawn to this week was titled, French President Sets Stricter Health Rules.
French president Emmanuel Macron has announced new health rules to contain the spread of the Delta variant of COVID19.
The key measure announced by Macron will make the EU Digital Covid Certificate – commonly called “health pass” – mandatory in all cultural venues, including cinemas, theaters and concert halls starting on July 21. Starting in August, the health pass will be mandatory in cafes, shops, restaurants, as well as trains and planes, among other places.
Until now, the certificate was only required at festivals and any events gathering more than 5,000 people.
Macron is also making the vaccine mandatory for all doctors, nurses and caregivers, as well as people with health conditions or those considered “vulnerable.”
Another article was titled, Prepare for mandatory COVID vaccines in September, US Army tells command.
Mandatory vaccination that will require proof for a person to travel, for employment, dining, entertainment, and anything else that a government deems necessary, sounds too much like the Last Days prediction that at some point everyone on Earth will be subjected to a contactless, cashless system of commerce involving a ‘mark’ on your hand or forehead. And all of it is becoming more global in scope.
COVID19 vaccination is not the Mark of the Beast. Whether or not you get vaccinated is up to you.
I am pointing to the trend the pandemic has set in terms of accelerating acceptance of the kind of system described in the Revelation.
We believe the resurrection and rapture of the church is imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it. It will happen before the Great Tribulation.
Jesus will return in the clouds.
He will raise the dead in Christ.
He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies.
We will all join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.
Are you ready for the rapture? If not, Get ready; Stay ready; Keep looking up.
Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
