Look Who's Coming to the Rescue!
"And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name." - Revelation 13:16-17
Now we just need to have an abundance of wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes, floods, famines false prophets and throw in some pestilence for good measure. Oh, and lets not forget perilous times when people will be lovers of themselves rather than lovers of God etc., and perhaps throw in a pinch of knowledge increasing rapidly and the ability for the whole world to be deceived by...something or other. Seen any of those things yet?
It's going to be biblical. - W.E.
