Prominent Christian “conspiracy theorists” suggest that Donald Trump’s defeat at the hands of former US VP Joe Biden will lead to the creation of the “Kingdom of the Antichrist.”
Certain websites that track “biblical prophecies” are warning that the election of Joe Biden will lead to a cashless society. In a cashless society, according to one such site, the economy becomes more of a global structure – which the writer of the post claims is a sign of the End Times. The blog, called “Signposts of the Times,” said that the Chinese Social Credit program is a ‘mark of the beast’, and Joe Biden’s election will allow the system to prosper.
The blog pointed to the Bible verse Revelation 13:16-17, which reads: “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.”
More recently, the blog has said that Joe Biden will also allow the system to prosper, leading to the rise of the Antichrist. Signposts of the Times said, “Both China and the European Central Bank are on the road to building this future cashless world, which means the remainder of the world would have no choice but to follow suit, as China and the European Union represent a huge part of the global economy.”
The post continued, “At the same time that the world is rapidly building the global digital economic system which will exist during the time of the Tribulation, there are other components of the future ‘Mark of the Beast’ system under construction. That includes the ‘Mark’ itself, which is still a mystery as to what exactly it will be.”
However, according to the blog’s analysis, some of the particulars of the Antichrist “Mark of the Beast” are already in the works. The blogger explained, “This includes ‘smart technology’, which when incorporated into such things as a wristband, quantum dot or microchip can then be used to track and monitor any person, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. And just like the Chinese social credit system, eventually can be used to deny you the ability to buy or sell.”
There have also been those who have said giving people “cards” or some other way to prove that they have been given the COVID-19 vaccine could also represent “the Mark.” Sites like Signposts of the Times, also say that the Biden victory will have more people take the vaccine and not resist the virus as a “hoax,” perpetrated by Satan, as Trump clearly did.
Could any of this be true? Who knows, but I am far more concerned about what the Biden victory will mean for my taxes and my 2nd Amendment Rights than I am about the coming Armageddon.
