And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that
wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that
had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his
image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with
brimstone.

Mark of the beast—National ID


Of all the prophecies, this is the
most dreaded. Revelation 13 simply
says that every person will be
required to receive a number or a
mark of some sort in order to partic-
ipate in the world’s economy.
The prophecy is 2,000 years old,
but it could only be fulfilled since
the invention of the computer and
the advent of the Internet. The real-
ization of this prophecy prior to
today has been technologically
impossible. However now it is all
too possible!
At present, eighty-five percent of
all financial transactions done in the
world are performed electronically.
Of course, a number is needed to
make this possible. A social security
number is required to hold a job,
open a bank account or get a drivers’
license.
