Is Bitcoin the ‘Mark of the Beast’?

Many people are extremely wary of a one-world currency. I didn’t know until recently that this fear among Christians is due to a passage in the Bible itself. The Book of Revelation, chapter 13:16-17 says:

“And he causes 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.”

The topic came up during a drive through the country. Some friends and I utilized Craigslist to pay for a 1000-mile rideshare, and during the drive I had ample time to proselytize to our new driver friend about digital currency. After hearing my synopsis, he said, “So … is Bitcoin kind of like the mark of the beast?”

“What’s that?” I asked. He explained his take on the Book of Revelation passage — that his prophets of old were warned that the highest tyranny would come to the earth in a form of biometrically-enforced and perfectly traceable money.

What with Elliptic’s recent privacy-smashing “blockchain map” and the fact that a man has already had a Bitcoin wallet implanted in his hand, one can see that my driver friend made an excellent point: if the Bitcoin maximalists get their way, and the whole world uses Bitcoin in its current form, the “compliant” masses could seriously usher in the “mark of the beast.” Here’s how:

1. Bitcoin would be the perfect currency to be declared the only “legal tender.” States have failed miserably at producing and maintaining stable currencies. They just can’t resist dipping their hands into the piggy bank. Look no further than Greece for a perfect example.

But digital currency provides a way for states to save themselves from themselves. A currency with a non-manipulatable inflation rate is a brilliant way for monopolists to present a viable, long-term monopoly currency.

“Legal tender” laws have been used for 100 years to successfully corral people into using a monopoly currency. If the masses who’ve been obedient continue to be obedient, who’s to say “legal tender” wouldn’t be enforced with one digital currency as well? Just look at what’s happening in Ecuador — the state says all banks must accept a new state-run cryptocurreny. . . or else.

    Of course bitcoin was developed as a proto type digital currency for people who understand the bankster fraud wanting a new way to trade developed by the banksters venture capital and marketed to (Ironically) sold to those wanting to escape the banking monopoly (haha).
    I knew this way back( as I am so clever:) and whenever you comment and point out the bitcoin banksters connection you get a bankers tool shill saying “oh no guy this is was not developed by banksters for banksters”.

    Isn’t the beast the EGO ?
    Or is it Greed?
    Or is it the bankers?

    According to the research of Joe Atwill in his books Caesar’s Messiah and Shakespeare’s Secret Messiah, the New Testament, the Pauline Epistles, and Revelation were synthetic scriptures created by the Roman Imperium to create a new religion to keep the underclass of the Empire, including the Jews compliant and docile. The evidence suggests this is true. If so, “The Mark of the Beast” is a concept whipped up as part of this mind-control agenda.

    The Bitcoin is just more fiat, imaginary, fake, money in digital form. It has nothing tangible backing it. It’s as worthless as the dollar. When this current system of slavery finally comes to an end, do you honestly believe the Internet will be running so you can make digital purchases with your Bitcoins? Do you believe a postal service will be making deliveries?

    Money in any form is a system of control and slavery. Plants and animals are considered lower life forms. They don’t need pieces of paper to survive or thrive so what does that say about humans?

    Money always flows in one direction from the poor to the rich. The words “In God We Trust” is printed on the dollar bill. This is an oxymoron because if people had faith in a God, they would not be using money. Money truly is the root of backwards living (Evil). If we examine everything that ails society and this planet, it will lead to money and the greed for it.

    It’s time for humanity to grow up and take responsibility. It’s time to stop giving away our power and to get off our knees. No one is coming to save us. We are the ones we have been waiting for!

    Peace & Blessings,

    Sorry for the rant.

    The mark of the beast is the name of the beast, and those who worship the beast are going to receive his name in the heart or in the mind, because worship comes from the heart and from the mind…Worship does not come from a tattoo, or from a micro-chip, or any technology…Those who worship the beast will obtain a permit from the beast to do business, that is to buy or sell…The mark of the beast is spiritual, and identical to the pledge of allegiance to the flag…When the Germans used their right hand to salute Hitler or, to pledge allegiance to the flag, there was no physical mark in the right hand, or forehead of the German pledger, because the mark, that is, the name of (Hitler), or of the flag (Germany), was in the heart, or in the mind of the German pledger…When the US citizens use their right hand to salute the flag, or to pledge allegiance to the flag, there is no physical mark in the right hand, or forehead of the US pledger, because the mark, that is the name of the (US) flag, is in the heart, or in the mind of the US pledger…When the king of Babylon the great, played the national anthem, and at the sound of music, when the Babylonians fell down to the ground to worship the gold image, there was no physical mark in the right hand, or forehead of the Babylonian worshipper, because the mark of the gold image, was in the heart, or in the mind of the Babylonian worshipper…The devil uses Romans 13 to deceive those who are pledging allegiance to the flag, because they do not believe what God said in Ex.20:1-5, and De.4:15-19…God said , “you shall not make or serve any image in the likeness of heaven above, or in the likeness of the earth below”…The devil deceived the founding fathers of the nations, and they made images of the stars, of the moon, of the sun, of birds, and four footed beasts, in the likeness of heaven above and in the likeness of the earth below…The god of the US is the star spangled of heaven and the bald eagle of the earth…The god Canada is the leaf of the maple tree of the earth…The god of Mexico is the eagle and serpent of the earth…The god of Japan is the sun of heaven…The god of Israel is the star remphan of heaven Acts 7…When the US plays the national anthem, and at the sound of music, the US citizens stand on their feet to sing the song “old glory” to the star spangled of heaven…The ministers of God cannot see the idols high and lifted up on a flag pole, because the god of this world has blinded the minds of the ministers, with the so-called “constitution” of “liberty and justice for all”…God calls this type of flag service “idolatry”, because people are serving idols…Now if anyone disagrees with the commandments of God in Ex.20:1-5, and De.4:15-19, he/she can argue with God in judgment day.
