A watchman is to see danger coming and to sound the alarm. He is to urge God’s people to live faithfully and warn them of any risks that may tempt them to take their focus off the Lord (Ezekiel 33:7).
With that said, let me ask you three questions:
- How much do we desire to make life easier?
- What price are we willing to pay for speed and convenience?
- Should technology be a cause of concern for a watchman?
Near Field Communication technology, called NFC tags for short, is being used in many daily activities, often without people realizing they have this technology at their fingertips. Anyone with a smartphone has NFC technology built in. For example, anyone who uses systems such as Apple Pay uses NFC technology. NFC tags allow technology to communicate without the need for an internet connection. Businesses have been using this technology for a while.
Talking Store Shelves
Kraft Foods have used NFC tags to provide instant coupons, special offers, and product information directly on their packaging. While shopping, they have made it easy to download Kraft’s iFood Assistant app and see recipes, generate shopping lists, and buy more of their products.
Designers have used NFC tags for security and to authenticate their brands. But now consumers have found that having NFC tags embedded in their clothing allows them to do tasks such as turning their phone to silent during important meetings. Arrow shirts have placed an NFC tag on the cuff, and by tapping your phone on your cuff, you can complete such tasks as sending someone your business card, changing the music on your cell phone, and sharing a Facebook link.
Nail salons are starting to embed the NFC nail tag onto customers’ nails, allowing them to have the same technology abilities at their fingertips.
Couples who want to take their wedding announcements to the next technological level now have options. Wedding invitations are now available using NFC technology, and by doing so, couples can send out wedding announcements embedded with video, audio, and pictures.
NFC technology is becoming so common you can buy a lot of NTAG215 Blank NFC Cards on Amazon or eBay. These cards store over 500 bytes of memory, are waterproof, and give you access and convenience. You can turn home systems and appliances on or off with these cards. You have instant access to event tickets, you can store personal information, and the NFC tag can be used for cashless payments.
Credit cards, smartphones, store shelves, clothing, and nail salons. What is the next innovation in wearable technology? How about the human body? The medical field has been a driving force behind this new renaissance, taking digital technology directly to the human body.
A digital tattoo can allow medical professionals to monitor one’s blood sugar level or patient blood pressure. The University of California San Diego also has developed a “lab on the skin.” This wearable device can monitor glucose levels and things like alcohol and lactate levels. This is applied directly to the skin and sends data wirelessly to a custom smartphone app.
Taking the possibilities of the digital tattoo further, the Motorola Corporation launched the digital tattoo for its Moto X handset. The digital tattoo sticker unlocks the smartphone without the need for a password. With this development, a digital tattoo has more potential than only medical purposes. A digital tattoo can be used for both good and evil. The concern is if our culture adapts and accepts the digital tattoo for everyday activities such as buying and selling, how far of a leap will it be to the open acceptance of the Mark of the Beast!?
“The Great Narrative” a Sequel to “The Great Reset”
The World Economic Forum Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab and his co-author Thierry Malleret released their new book, The Great Narrative. The Great Narrative is phase two of the Great Reset. This book encapsulates the Davos Vision and explores how we can shape a “constructive, common narrative for the future.” The book describes how we can “create a more resilient, inclusive, and sustainable future.”
Our world is putting the technology the Antichrist will use to control and dominate the world into the hands of people willing and able to develop and launch the Antichrist system.
The World Economic Forum, in its book The Great Narrative for a Better Future, explains:
- The 19th century was the century of chemistry
- The 20th century was the century of physics
- The 21st century will be the century of biology
In this book, written by Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, says: “We will re-engineer biological systems. We are at the dawn of the genetic revolution. We now understand how to rewrite the genetic code” (page 102). Rewriting the genetic code is what they call synthetic biology, and they say it delivers on its promise.
AI and Warfare
Schwab explains: “Cybercrime and cyberattacks occur in the digital realm, without shots being fired or bombs being launched. This is fundamentally different from modern warfare, which is fast becoming cyber, combining deadly forces with digital capabilities” (page 100). Drones can be used for military purposes. Countries can now use this technology to protect their borders. But understand, on the evil side; drones can also be used to target the civilian population.
In March 2021, the United Nations confirmed that for the first time, military-grade autonomous drones could fly to specific locations, pick their targets, and kill without deploying any humans on the battlefield.
Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS)
According to the Great Narrative, which is phase two of the Great Reset, “The Network for Greening the Financial System is a group of 91 central banks committed to mobilizing mainstream finance to support the transition towards a sustainable economy” (page 125).
What does that mean? It means central banks will now adopt their policies around what will be considered climate-related risks. The World Economic Forum is playing around with the concept of “carbon quantitative easing,”’ meaning having central banks create a “carbon coin” and paying companies to keep carbon in the earth.
If you remember, Quantitative Easing, or QE, was a financial strategy central banks, such as the Federal Reserve, used during the Great Recession of 2008. The Federal Reserve purchased large amounts of securities, such as mortgage-backed securities. They made these purchases by simply printing more money. When a central bank prints money, the supply of dollars increases, which could lead to inflation. From 2008 to 2014, the Federal Reserve completed three rounds of Quantitative Easing. Now central banks are committing to mobilizing again.
Morality and Values
In The Great Narrative, the World Economic Forum is saying we must reconsider the role of morality and values in our lives and re-evaluate how they (morals and values) affect our behavior and decision-making. Seriously?!
“We cannot do things the way we normally do them and must reflect on the values that guide us. This is what the idea of COVID-19: The Great Reset was premised upon: change is always painful. This requires a re-examination of the role of morality and values. How critical are they, and how can they best inform our decisions and calls for action?” (page 135)
Well, what do you think? Does synthetic biology, AI and warfare, a greener financial system, morals, and values sound like things we should be concerned about? Should we be willing to turn these areas of life over to technology for convenience or to make life easier, supposedly? There is now a movement working around the clock to install the Antichrist system, and so far, the sheep are cheering this plan on. The sheep are lining up excited to implement new technology, oblivious that the wolf is watching and ready to pounce! It’s time to sound the alarm! The world is being set up for a perilous deception.
Maranatha, Lord Jesus!
