JUST WHO IS HE?
Hello again folks! So Doctor Who is real and all the financial movers and shakers are meeting Davros at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland? Only joking! On WorldNetDaily.com today; Hal Lindsey is stating his belief that Barry Smith's long-touted 'cashless society' is just around the corner [http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=87455] ... and he is probably right. But I was minded today, whilst driving home from work, to have a fresh look at the Book of Revelation @ chapter 13; specifically verses 16 thru' 18:
"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
For all the theories that abound regarding the meaning of the legendary number '666' and just what the "mark" will be; I'd like to draw your attention to something simple. Whoever the antichrist is or whoever he will turn out to be; we can draw some core truth from these three  verses.
"... HE causeth ALL ... to receive a mark ..." [and without that mark] "... that NO man might buy or sell ...".
The antichrist is a he [personal pro-noun] and he is a singular. In other words one man will head up the NWO. And most folks will take the 'mark of the beast' [MoB]. But not all. Let's look at Revelation chapter 20; verse 4:
"I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands."
This links back nicely to our chosen verses in chapter 13 and confirms that some will refuse the MoB. Now, the meeting at Davos is being reported extensively. Both on who is braving it and attending; what they are saying and who is staying away. It's all very interesting. If you read Hal Lindsey's piece; and understand the times and the course of the last two  years on the financial markets you can see that we are progressing to what the 'kings of the earth' have always planned and what John the Revelator prophesied on the Isle of Patmos over 1,900 years ago as he was moved by the Holy Spirit and received the revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ about a man who will come on the scene in the last days with the same spirit as Judas Iscariot.
He will have ruthless control of people and nations by way of credit; food; water and energy.
Already the so-called 'credit crunch' is fuelling the kind of worldwide economic recession that may get so bad that people everywhere from Australia to Zanzibar will cry out for the man. In their desperation they will sell their souls to him whilst crowning the perceived 'man of the hour' [who seems to have all the answers for all the ills of the world] as saviour. This one man, under the direction of satan, will do the unspeakable deeds as revealed in the Bible at the end of days. The only question that remains is: Just who is he? Now that's another study to undertake ... the traits of antichrist that we should recognize as revealed in the Word of God.
God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 30-Jan-2009
