Robert Wenzel of EconomicPolicy Journal relates the Age of Wilding may be upon us. I say that the Age of Wilding is the companion to the Age of Deleveraging and the Age of Authoritarianism.
Bible prophecy of Revelation 13:14-15, reveals that in the Age of Wilding most of the world will initially hail the Sovereign as a political savior. But three-and-a-half years into a soon coming Middle East peace covenant that he oversees, he will invade Israel and establish Jerusalem as his world capital. He will outlaw all religions, except the worship of himself. And a hologram, that is a holographic image of himself, will be empowered to speak and “cause those who refuse to worship it to be killed”.
Being half way through the Tribulation, this will introduce The Great Tribulation, at which time, a remnant of God’s people with find sanctuary here on Earth for a time, times, and half a time, that is the last forty-two months of the Beast’s rule.
The Sovereign will establish the Abomination of Desolation, which is a specific worldwide practice in the end times that is an sacrilege to God. This abomination will lead to the desolation, that is the destruction, of many people and nations. This abomination begins when the Sovereign claims to be God, and demands that all accept his claim to sovereignty, as evidenced by worshipping him as God. This legal decree of the Sovereign will cause great desolation worldwide.
The abomination is disdainful, as he sits in the holy place in the Jerusalem Temple, and as he forces all into luciferian worship.
God will destroy the people who worship him by the plagues in the Book of Revelation (7 seals, 7 trumpets and 7 bowls of wrath).
This brings to mind a previous abomination and desolation, of another king recorded in Daniel 3:1-6: ”Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was sixty cubits and its width six cubits … and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.”
The hologram that talks, along with the mark of the Beast, Revelation 13:15-16, will be the main vehicles to enforce the worldwide worship of the Sovereign. With the hologram, one will one will have a means of worship, something to give worship to, as well as to be watched and observed via over what will likely be a type of interactive global Wi-Fi. One will observe and be observed during one’s worship.
Sign Posts Of The Times in article Apple patent reveals plans for holographic display relates that a recently granted patent reveals that Apple, the company behind the iPod and iPhone, has been working on a new type of display screen that produces three-dimensional and even holographic images without the need for glasses. The technology could be used to produce a new generation of televisions, computer monitors and cinema screens that would provide viewers with a more realistic experience. Richard Gray of the Telegraph reports that this technology would also create images that appear to be holographic because of the ability to track the observers movements: “An exceptional aspect of the invention is that it can produce viewing experiences that are virtually indistinguishable from viewing a true hologram. “Such a “pseudo-holographic” image is a direct result of the ability to track and respond to observer movements.
The mark of Revelation 13:16-18, is a sacrament, that is an outward sign or outward proof, of one’s covenant to worship the Sovereign. People will not accidentally take this mark. Just as no one intentionally calls upon the name of the Lord for life, the mark will only be taken by those who willingly understand what they are doing.
In summary, the Abomination of Desolation is a term that is used both for an activity and a time period. Daniel confirms three and one-half years as his rule: ”from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the Abomination of Desolation is set up, there shall be 1,290 days.” (Dan 12:11). And finally from Old Testatment prophecy we have insight which relates the Sovereign is a vile person (who) shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue (Dan. 11:21). And from the New Testament we see that the coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders (2 Thes. 2:9)
