No seal no sale. That's how it's going to be and it will be global world will eventually become a cashless society either by evaluating cash or outlawing it, or maybe something we've not yet thought of or seen.
This development is in full swing this very day. How much or how many of you has got to say how much cash do you have but how many of you have cash in your wallet. This is cross reference radio with our pastor and teacher.
Rick asked Rick is the pastor of Calvary Chapel Mechanicsville. Pastor Rick is currently teaching special messages here and cross reference radio. Please stay with us after today's message to hear more information about cross reference radio, specifically how you can get a free copy of this teaching, but for now let's join Pastor Rick in Revelation chapter 13 as he shares part one of a special message called revelations rumblings Revelation chapter 13 then I stood on the sand of the sea and I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and 10 horns, and on his horns 10 crowns on his heads a blasphemous name of the beast which I saw was like a leopard's feet were like the feet of a bear in his mouth like the mouth of a lion and the dragon gave him his power is thrown great authority and I saw one of the heads as if it had been mortally wounded in his deadly wound was healed. In all the world marveled and followed the beast so they worshiped the Dragon gave authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, who is like the beast who is able to make war with him. He was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, he was given authority to continue for 42 months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, his tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them in authority was given him over every tribe and tongue and nation all who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity, he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword.
Here is the patients in the faith of the saints.
Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed because is all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name here is wisdom.
Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 66 and six.
Interestingly, am I in the Bible and the pulpit Bible here that chapters that verses on page 1666 things happen like that. The text, the part that we going to zoom in on from this very fascinating and frightening in developing chapter of the Bible is first 17 in just this part of it. No one may buy or sell except one who has the mark of the name of the beast revelations rumblings. That's the message, revelations, rumblings, what, where, the thunder of this book. The time we live in chapter of Revelation.
John saw these two human figures entered the world stage. The first one Antichrist comes from the sea likely indicating he is a Gentile second beast comes from the earth, likely indicating that he is a Jew, and they come on the scene at the beginning of the great tribulation. But they don't develop until the latter stage the great tribulation period is really divided into two parts is a seven year.
The first 3 1/2 years will be relative peace, relative to what's coming in the next 3 1/2 years will be tribulation, such as the world has never known and so verses again one through 10.
There emerges a world leader that fierce beast. The man of sin, the son of perdition, the antichrist, then another beast appears in verses 11 through 18. He is the spiritual advocate of political antichrist is that I have the false prophet. You do have the false prophet, and he sort of the spiritual antichrist together they form a dual made in hell. The second beast, the false prophet. He is the one that masterminds this economic persecution of the saints, where you will not be able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast.
This is something that is thought up by anti-grub by the false prophet on behalf of antichrist. These two make up the greatest human enemies of Jews and Christians.
Humanity is ever known. There is nothing close to these two there the Hitler's ability and tickets epiphanies and there are others throughout the need arose in the dimensions and others in history that were file but they had not this kind of power both power, according to military might. Economic strength would most importantly power write out a hell.
During this period. Coming to the world. He says here in verse 17 and and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark, the seal of antichrist. No seal no sale.
That's how it's going to be and it will be global. The world will eventually become a cashless society either by evaluating cash or outlawing it, or maybe something we've not yet thought of or seen. This development is in full swing this very day. How much or how many of you has to say how much cash do you have but how many of you have cash in your wallet or how many of you have cash in your wallet compared to 30 years ago. Cash is of course going away and other means of exchange filling in the blanks. This fact exists, and we are very mindful of it that everyone is on the grid. Everyone can be traced to does increasing, it is becoming where you just just know where you can hide on the planet. You can even go into the forest and hide. The technology is so advanced.
The infrared's just for example, the satellites these two individuals will wield extraordinary powers. Daniel called it early on in Daniel's seventh chapter he writes after this I saw in the night visions, and behold, 1/4 beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong.
It had huge iron teeth. It was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had 10 horns. Daniel had seen the world powers coming into place the Alex, me and all the aggression Empire under Alexander the great, he saw that the Medes and Persians in Jesus.*All these empires coming and then he sees this and times entity that we know as antichrist and that's what he speaking about their in Daniel chapter 7. Terrible, exceedingly strong. Remember, the Bible has a flair for understatement and so when is says it is exceedingly strong in the sink I that's this high as it gets so emphatic. It is an effort this cashless society. This insistence that you have his mark.
It is an effort to force men by economic means to forsake Christ and accept antichrist true believers will prefer death than renouncing their Savior.
During this great tribulation. And there will be many of them says here that they are to have that mark or the name of the beast. No name, no necessities.
If you are not lined up with antichrist you don't get to purchase anything so long. It's all wrapped in together the mark.
The name the number that mystical number that special box 66 and six says. Also, here are the number of his name, no number, no deal. There must be some deliberate and willful tag put on this individual that is unmistakable to everyone and that will be at an antichrist and his false prophet will say join us or die will know who you are.
We already know who you are. This distinct tag 666. Of course it speaks of the evil Trinity is speaks of the false prophet, the antichrist and the force of Satan himself. Lucifer himself behind this piece of marble we not doing a verse by verse exposition of the number we are going to get back to the rumblings of this book and how relevant it is to us sharing our faith from the book of Revelation on unlike any time in human history. But this number will be-I believe an intentional mockery of Christianity in God's word, making the crime more damnable.
Peter said knowing this first, that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own desires. Their own passionate desires. The word translated is less they going to do their own thing stopping at what they already know about God.
Because Christians have been faithful over the ages to preach the gospel and they still are faithful to preach the gospel.
It is no longer a hidden message in most of the world or much of the Western civilization. For sure what this this force of evil antichrist and his false prophet. They are going to insist on using 666, knowing that that's the tag put on them. Supposing again to mark the Lord of the Bible. They cannot do otherwise. Because God rules the Scripture must be fulfilled, they will think their mocking God, but in the end they will be judged and how can they not know that this is going to be the number everybody knows this is the number they will go forward with their plan to belittle the church to destroy what the church won't be here to belittle Christians to destroy Christians right now. The attempts are to marginalize the church to make it insignificant to make our message insignificant in size. You know the getting ahead of myself. Let's go back to the to come back to my notes visiting their technology is actually fueling the doom of humanity.
The many uses to it is nothing wrong with technology in itself depends on what was in your heart, what you doing with these things. These two demonically filled characters holding all of this global political and spiritual power from Satan. They they will have their way with those who refused to let Jesus have their heart Revelation 16 verse 13 and I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the Dragon what what a spooky scene. Dragon is scary enough to have three frogs come out three blind mice would've been you know something I could not been so frightened by three frogs coming from the mouth of this monster and he says, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet foul things will be coming out of their hearts because Satan has filled their hearts willfully not against their will. Revelation 1312 he exercises all authority of the first beast. This is the false prophet in his presence.
That is the antichrist and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the false beast. This is spiritual.
This is something to do with religion. The atheists will be gone.
They will sell themselves over to this madness. Most false god worshipers today in an ancient history would deny that there worshiping demons straight out. God says otherwise. God says if you know worshiping me you're worshiping a concoction out of hell. I don't care what name you put on it.
How pretty you think you can make it your creating a perfect kingdom of human fools that are just waiting for this satanic these these these Satan boys the world is right it is ready to receive them with open arms. The Jews tribulation converts will be the hated targets of not only these two but all the antichrist are goose-stepping with them to their doom. Revelation 11 verse 10 and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them.
That is the witnesses of God. The two witnesses that are killed, there will rejoice over them, make Mary send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.
They do that they capture people and put hot pokers into their flash beat the bottom of their feet with canes like the communist did to Richard Juan Brennan.
Other believers no they simply salted the earth with truth and righteousness.
They were a walking sermon conviction against sin and the madness that is engulfing the planet they hated these two men for being righteous and it was global hated so much. They went out and bought things to send to other people because they have the ability to buy and sell the key to evil, and the book of Revelation. The key to it, pulling off this master plan of Satan is not only that Satan's release, but he has to technology the vehicle to do all of this, which was not available to the Caesars of days gone by, or anybody else without technology the prophecies of the book of Revelation. Install what now we have the technology, it is clear it is in plain sight.
Antitrust Christ will control all of the media, without which it cannot be the big mouth that the Bible tells us he will be. We know that the news media in this country is now state media is controlled by elements of evil in the government, you have to go outside of mainstream media just to find out who lit a match because of their telling the story. It's going to be slanted or skewed spun the going to vilify and try to assassinate the character of anyone who dares to oppose them. They'd seen nothing yet wait to these two boys get on the scene. Revelation 13 and he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for 3 1/2 years 42 months is he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemy will what could that mean except he has a platform. He has a soles of a soapbox that can reach everywhere at the same time, every language can receive the Tower of Babel is being rebuilt. Daniel chapter 7 you shall speak pompous words against the most high, shall persecute those of the most high is John said in his letter antichrist is coming, many antichrist are here the dominion of Satan the antichrist are building this fools paradise so that he will have all that he needs to cause harm to try to exterminate every believer of Jesus Christ and every Jewish person whether they believe in Christ or not. Video is a media platform like YouTube.
And just this month, they found themselves in court lawsuit filed against them by church. The church of United Church United and it was a discrimination lawsuit filed on behalf of of James Doman who is a former homosexual, but he is he is come out of that.
Of course he's a pastor now, is married he is children and he would post on video videos on how to come out of homosexuality of MAO banded him deleted his account not just the videos on that subject, but the entire account in the band will and will ban anyone who makes any attempt to lead homosexuals out of homosexuality and all that goes with the package. This is known as Gay conversion therapy by somebody and if you look it up on the Internet you'll find that you'll find all of the bias and sickening defenses against it, or attacks against it, but that's not what were really focusing on at this point it could've been anyone that has a one sided approach against free speech in this country well. They went to court and the court ruled in favor of Emilio and thereby empowering the meal to legally band videos preaching against homosexuality or anything else they don't like.
If you are a fan of blue shoelace tips and they don't like it they can shut you down legally cannot take them to court. YouTube has not yet done this one while they're waiting for their meal to spend their money in the courts so they can get the ruling and then if they so decide.
They'll be able to ride on the coattails of that lawsuit and do the same thing. Bob Tyler, the lawyer that the defendant or brought lawsuit on behalf of Church United inter-telephone interview says the decision is very concerning. Because they gave the ability for social media platforms and other related websites to be completely immune from liability when they engage in international acts of discrimination towards protected classes. Let me translate that they giving the right to everybody on the Internet to tell you Christians.
You can't buy from us. You can't post on here you're not welcome we're going to shut you up.
That is what is going on. Judge Stewart Erin upheld publisher immunity and immunity to police content. If you're not politically correct in your out Proverbs 17 verse 15 U justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just both of them alike are an abomination to Yahweh.
So you see this the catalyst for this message.
Here we live in a time where we are seeing prohibition to not buy or sell becoming law in our land. We are seeing the prophecies fulfilled. It's not yet final, but the groundwork is laid like never before in our society Isaiah and if you don't know this verse from Isaiah. You should know it.
Chapter 5 verse 21 to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter flipping everything upside down. Not right side up. Also in June 2019 then he removed an account of project Veritas and American conservative activist group. They discriminated against it in line. They wanted to silence them so there big mountain can be heard instead but they they continue. Romeo does to accept videos which to God are obscene. You service building and antichrist move.
