As I’ve mentioned before, in order for the coming antichrist to control the whole world he has to be able to control the economy. You cannot control the economy unless you get rid of cash because cash can’t be controlled or traced. It’s used in under-the-table transactions such as buying materials for making bombs to blow up political and government figures. Can’t have that! So we have to get rid of cash.
In the past twenty-four hours I have read three separate news article related to abolishing cash:
- China has conducted a lottery in Shenzhen, their “experiment with ideas and stuff” city. 50,000 residents got to split a total of 10 million yuan, (about 1.5 million in US dollars) in digital currency to spend it at about 3800 designated outlets in the next week. It comes out to about $30.00 per lottery winner. The government officially claims that it’s to “stimulate the economy” but that rings loudly of “give me a break”. It is actually part of the government’s push for a cashless society. As part of this experiment they are also using barcode scanners and facial recognition.
- Cuba has had a two currency (dollar and peso) economy for many years and is now in the uncertain process of moving away from the taxed dollar to get around US sanctions. Those citizens who are more affluent and have international friends or family can get around the Cuban restrictions by purchasing cryptocurrencies to buy luxury items online using bitcoin.
- Christine Lagarde, European Central Bank (ECB) president, said that the ECB is very seriously considering the idea of creating a digital version of the euro. She said that covid-19 has fundamentally changed the way people live, work and play, with over a 20% increase in online purchases between February and June, 2020. Although she’s claiming this digital currency would only supplement cash, not replace it, that’s unlikely to turn out to be true in the long run.
The handwriting is on the wall, (did you know that expression comes from the Book of Daniel?) we are marching relentlessly towards a cashless society.
Please, neither offhandedly accept nor reject what is said in this blog. Check it out. Look it up for yourself in the Bible. If you are a child of God, you are in good hands and there is the most wonderful eternity waiting for you. If you are not a Christ follower, now is a really good time to honestly explore the truth claims of the Bible.
