In recent times, the digital space has been agog with all sorts of information concerning the end-time events said to be taking place world over.
Thousands of articles, books and publications about the number 666 and the Antichrist are in circulation as we speak. Some world leaders have been touted to assume the position of the Antichrist who would gain total and absolute control over systems and structures of the world.
It’s no news that certain wealthy and influential people are hell-bent on ensuring the fulfilment of this agenda through strategies like population control, achieved through barbaric acts like terrorism and ethnic/religious cleansing.
In some quarters, it has been rumoured that COVID-19, disease originated and began its spread from the city of Wuhan, China in December 2019 and escalated into a pandemic in 2020. is being doctored by a group of elites in an attempt to wipe out millions of people from the surface of the earth.
Billionaire tech businessman and philanthropist, Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda have invested heavily in Africa’s development were said to have queried the high rate of immunity against COVID-19 witnessed in the Black continent. This development has attracted a lot of suspicion among Africans. So much scepticism surrounds the introduction of vaccines to cure the disease.
We continue to get news about advanced countries like the USA adopting microchip technology in which people can transact business anywhere and anytime with the aid of a microchip implant present in the body.
Many have argued that this is the fulfilment of the bible prophecy about people receiving the mark of the beast (666).
While the rate of confusion and anxiety continues to rise in the world, world powers continue to flex their technological muscles, the bible provides believers with a detailed, accurate and reliable information we can run with as we await the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 4:12 tells us that the word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword, capable of cutting through to the point where spirit and soul meet. The spirit is undoubtedly the innermost part of our being, yet it is not beyond the reach of the word of God.
This word can journey through the region of the five senses to the realm of the mind, emotions and will, right on to the confines of the human spirit.
To think that mere mortal beings can devise a technology that would penetrate the human soul, serving as a mind-control system for an estimated seven billion people is quite ridiculous and a huge scam. They cannot manipulate the human soul, let alone the spirit.
The figure 6 represents man. God created man on the sixth day and rested on the seventh according to the scriptures. Chapters 6 and 9 of the book of Revelations talk about the seven seals and seven trumpets.
The sixth seal and sixth trumpet spelt doom for unrepentant mankind; so, we can deduce that 6 represents judgement. Still dwelling on these chapters, the number 6 also represents self which plays a key role in the steady rise of moral depravity in today’s world.
If we can connect the dots, this is what we will get:
The influence of 6(self) on 6(man) will ultimately lead to 6(God’s judgement) culminating into 666.
It is a belief system contrary to that of Christ Jesus.
So every man has a choice to either submit to the lordship of Christ or subscribe to this dangerous belief system.
In the light of this discourse, it is important to properly discern and carefully select the school of thought to which we subscribe by the help of the holy spirit, as there are many who, in a bid to gain popularity, communicate error and heresies unashamedly to the detriment of their followers.
In this era when there is an ever-increasing hunger for knowledge, we must allow the holy spirit to be in control of this hunger so that we will not be misguided.
Every vision, dream or revelation must be screened to ensure that they point men to Christ and his finished work on the cross.
