An inquiring mind asks, Will Apple’s iPhone serve as the communications center for both commerce and worship under the 666 system.
David Pogue writes in NYT New iPhone Conceals Sheer Magic The phone has four improvements
1) There’s a faster chip, the same one that’s in the iPad 2.
2) A much better, faster camera, among the best on a phone.
3) The iPhone 4S is a world phone.
4) Speech recognition. Apple won’t admit that it’s using a new version of Dragon Dictation. But dictation is only half the story, no one tenth of the story. Because in 2010, Apple bought a start-up called Siri, whose technology it has baked into the iPhone 4S. Siri is billed as a virtual assistant: a crisply accurate, astonishingly understanding, uncomplaining, voice commanded minion. It’s mind blowing how inexact your utterances can be. Siri understands everything. She has various amusing responses for “What is the meaning of life?” It’s even more amazing how Siri’s responses can actually form a conversation. Once, I tried saying, “Make an appointment with Patrick for Thursday at 3.” Siri responded, “Note that you already have an all-day appointment about ‘Boston Trip’ for this Thursday. Shall I schedule this anyway?” Unbelievable. Siri can perform an incredible range of tasks. She can get stock prices, weather, currency and price conversions, dictionary definitions. She lets you use your voice to edit or check the Clock, Calendar, Notes and Address Book apps, the new Reminders app and the renamed Music. She can read your text messages to you and let you respond, all by voice (big news for drivers). She uses GPS to know where you are, so you can say things like, “Remind me to pick up the dry cleaning when I leave work”, and she’ll do it.
Recently I wrote in article Apple Paves The Way For The 666 Credit System Of Revelation 13:18, that Joseph Menn of FT.com reports that Apple is expected to install ‘Wave and Pay’ Technology for iPhone 5, boosting mobile commerce and potentially giving the company a big piece of the multi billion dollar transaction industry. Such a portable personalized cashless payment system lays the commerce foundation for the 666 Credit System held forth in Revelation 13:16-18, that the Seignior of Revelation 13:11-18 and the Sovereign of Revelation 13:5-10 will mandate as part of a global currency system, that is the charagma, or mark (3), that will be required by all in order to conduct commerce. Now with Apple’s Siri voice mail feature set one will have the capability for ongoing and immediate contact to worship the Sovereign at his beckoning. Those who reject accept the 666 money system and worship the Soveign are vile in the eyes of God, and will be at the receiving end of His eternal wrath as seen in Revelation 14:9-13 and Revelation 16:2.
Does all of this seem too fantastic for one to believe? I suggest that one read the Economist article Get Ready for the Phoenix dated 01/9/88, Vol. 306, pp 9-10, as provided by EndTimeObserver: “Thirty years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency. Prices will be quoted not in dollars, yen or D-marks but in, let’s say, the phoenix. The phoenix will be favoured by companies and shoppers because it will be more convenient than today’s national currencies, which by then will seem a quaint cause of much disruption to economic life in the last twentieth century.”
Yes, bible prophecy of Revelation 13 foretells that a beast system, a beast banker, and a beast ruler, are rising to rule mankind.
The beast system of Revelation 13:1-4, that being a combine of global corporatism and regional economic government, is growing daily. When fully developed it will manifest in all of mankind’s seven institutions and in the world’s ten regions.
Neoliberalism featured the Milton Friedman neoliberal Free To Choose, floating currency regime. Now, God’s sovereign will, Ephesians 1:9-10, is effecting a global coup d etat for a new banking, financial, credit, and investment regime. Neoauthoritarianism will feature, the beast banker, the Seignior, Revelation,13:11-18, a word which comes from Old English and means top dog banker who takes a cut. He will establish fiscal sovereignty, (1), as well as seigniorage (2), and institute unified regulation of banking globally, as called for by Timothy Geithner and reported by James Politi and Gillian Tett in the Financial Times.
Bible prophecy foretells the beast ruler, the Sovereign, Revelation 13: 5-10, will install a global and interactive worship system. Daniel 9:27 says, “And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.” The pronoun “he” at the beginning of the verse refers to the future Sovereign. Why? Because the nearest antecedent is clearly a reference to “the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary”, Daniel 9:26, which speaks of the Roman destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD. Thus, “he” is the Sovereign who will accomplish the events of 9:27 in the middle of the future 70th week of Daniel known as the Great Tribulation on behalf of the Revived Roman Empire as previously taught in Daniel, 2,7.
The prophet Isaiah reveals that Israel will sign a middle east peace accord with the Sovereign in Isaiah 28:14-22. Israel will seek security from her enemies that are pressing from all sides. Instead of securing a covenant of life, as Israel’ s leaders will think, it is in reality a covenant with death, Isaiah 8:15-18. Instead of gaining protection from her European vassal, Israel will experience the overwhelming scourge, Isaiah 28:15-18, a metaphor for military occupation. Further, in the middle of the tribulation, that is 42 months later, this Sovereign with the Seignior’s power, will demand global worship of himself, Revelation 13:11-18.
In summary, at a future time, a European leader will step forth and appear to solve the Middle East crisis through negotiation and a covenant.
In the mean time, God is preparing through contemporary events in our own day, a Revived Roman Empire, that will initiate the final phase of the kingdom of man which will put forth its greatest effort against Almighty God … While God is preparing our world for judgment, the Believer should watch and pray always that one might be accounted worthy to escape all the things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man
(1) Sovereignty means to rule in a monarch fashion; sovereign means to rule powerfully and authoritatively; the word came into use in 1250 to 1300. Dictionary.com
(2) Seigniorage means top dog bank-note system, and comes from the Scottish and Bank of England financial system which was devised to maintain the value of currency writes Elaine Meinel Supkis,The History of Seigniorage Wealth,February 7, 2008 Money Matters Blog.
(3) The mark comes from the Greek word charagma meaning “etching in”, or “tattoo upon”, or “stamp”, or “badge of servitude”, which enables one to conduct economic activity, and which authorizes one to receive economic benefits; the mark will be required in order to buy or sell writes David Deschesne, Editor, A Mark in the Right Hand or in their Forehead, Fort Fairfield Journal, July 6, 2005 in his explanation of Revelation Chapter 13:14-18.
