War on Cash Intensifies

We know that one day, after the rapture we hope, cash will no longer be an accepted form of money. The only way that people on earth will be able to buy or sell anything will be to have some sort of mark that will allow them to access the cashless system.

Of course this will be for the coming government's total control.

As we near the Great Tribulation, we should expect to see signs that this cashless system is close.

Today on the front page of Google News we find this ominous headline.

The War on Cash Intensifies: Visa Offers Restaurants $10,000 to Go Cashless

Visa has declared war on cash and its "opening salvo" is to start paying restaurants $10,000 to go completely cash free.

The credit card giant is this week announcing a new plan to hand out thousands of dollars to up to 50 small food and restaurant vendors if they agree to stop taking cash.

Visa will also upgrade the restaurants' checkout terminals so they can accept contactless payments, like Apple Pay, and invest in some of the stores' marketing costs. When you pay at one of the stores you would only be able to do so with a credit or debit card, or via mobile payment. The program participants will be picked from an online application that starts in August.

It's all part of the trend of moving towards a "cashless" society. Sweden is leading the pack, with that nation already predicted to become the world's first truly cash-free society; over half the banks there already do not keep any cash on hand.

But the U.S. is catching up: Amazon's brick-and-mortar retail stores only accept credit cards and mobile payment methods; Facebook recently added a peer-to-peer payment option with its Messenger service; and Apple's iOS11 will include an upgrade to its ApplePay system that allows users to send money to each other via text message. This is all in addition to services like Venmo, a popular way for consumers — especially the younger generation — to send money to each other easily and quickly.

Cash currently accounts for around 30 percent of U.S. retail personal spending, according to recent Nilson Report data.

"To Visa, a cashless culture means convenience, security and ease of use. That translates to freedom for consumers and merchants alike," said Jack Forestell, Visa's head of global merchant solutions, in a statement.

It also translates to a big opportunity for Visa if it can replace consumers' use of cash with digital transactions. The company can charge processing fees for every purchase, and also bill vendors for using its network as a platform.

"We’re focused on putting cash out of business,” Visa Chief Executive Al Kelly told investors last month, making it clear that cash is in the company's crosshairs.

Further salvos by Visa include running digital payment acceptance at the upcoming Formula E race in Brooklyn and releasing a report on "Cashless Cities: Realizing the Benefits of Digital Payments” later this year. Preliminary data from the report states that if 100 cities went cashless they would accrue net benefits of $312 billion annually.

"With transactions poised to increasingly move away from traditional point of sale in the future (phones, cars, etc.), Visa believes we are on the cusp of an "explosion" in card acceptance locations," wrote George Mihalos, an analyst at Cowen and Company, in a recent note to investors.


For any of you folks out there who think that "Things have always been like this....", you have to have your head in the sand!

We are the VERY FIRST GENERATION SINCE CHRIST LEFT EARTH that now have the technology available to usher in the CASHLESS SOCIETY.

Not only is it available, it is being talked about and planned in clear view of everyone!

We don't know the day or the hour that Jesus will come to snatch His bride off planet earth...but when you see a headline like this, YOU SHOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF IT WERE TO HAPPEN SOON.

Watch the video link in this article explaining "THIS COUNTRY AIMS TO GO CASHLESS BY 2030"

Remember that 2030 could easily be moved up to 2018 if the rapture were to happen today.  The chaos that will result when millions of Christians vanish and leave their mortgages, car payments, students loans and credit card debt behind could certainly wipe out the existing system and force the world to go cashless immediately.

7 Years Worth of Toilet Paper

It would appear that the very rich folks of the world continue to be concerned about a global meltdown which may lead to anarchy.

So what are they doing about it?

They are laying down $millions to buy underground bunkers complete with armed guards and an armed vehicle that will travel up to 400 miles to pick you up and whisk you to the bunker.

If you take the few minute to watch the video about the latest bunkers being sold in Kansas....notice how interesting it is that the dude explaining the bunker system references "7 years" a few times.

Why not five years worth of toilet paper?  Why does he keep imagining the plans to be underground for 7 years?

After Donald Trump was elected president, a lot of the fears and concerns that were once so common among conservatives and libertarians, seemed to fade.

That state of relief was proven to be temporary, but fears of financial collapse and social disintegration still aren’t as prevalent now as they used to be. A lot of people have let their guard down, because they think things will be alright since “their guy” is in office.

But they should be concerned, because while they’ve been breathing a sigh of relief, wealthy elites and celebrities have been prepping like crazy. And it’s not just America, it’s people living abroad as well. So when high profile individuals are getting ready for the worst, you have to wonder if they know something that we don’t.

It’s a question we should be asking ourselves as more and more people in the upper class begin to buy luxury bunkers that can survive anything man or nature can throw at them. That’s what we’re seeing deep in the heart of Kansas, where a company called Survival Condo has bought a decommissioned nuclear silo, and is in the process of turning it into an underground condo complex with multiple residences that can be sold for between $1.5 million and $4 million.

According to the owner of the company:

“What we’re looking at is there’s an increasing array of threats like tornadoes and hurricanes and solar flares and pandemics and terrorism and food shortages,” Mr Hall told ABC News’ 60 Minutes. “There are so many things that happen every day all around the world and people are just hoping it doesn’t happen to them. But what if it does?”

Survival Condo claims that they “have the highest level of military grade security that offers both lethal and non-lethal measures in order [to] protect our residents.”

Additionally, the apartments have a full fibre optic intranet, data-streaming capabilities for education, information, and entertainment, as well as silo-to-silo network links and communications.

Not only are these compounds ready for any fathomable disaster, they are fully decked out in amenities designed to appeal to Survival Condo’s customer base. The compounds consist of a cinema, indoor pool and spa, medical first aid centre, bar, rock climbing wall, gym, and library.

“We’ve got a kids waterslide and waterfall in here, so it’s a little piece of the tropics right here in Central Kansas,” Mr Hall said.
And to give you an idea of just how sophisticated this bunker complex is, it will be able to feed its residents for up to five years by raising fish and growing food with hydroponics and UV lights. The condos are filled with LED screens that can portray outdoor scenery, presumably to keep wealthy residents sane while they sit around in a concrete bunker for several years.

There’s even an armored vehicle for picking up condo owners who are up to 400 miles away when the SHTF, so they can be whisked away to their new home. The owner of Survival Condo was interviewed by CNBC news several months ago, where he revealed several other impressive details about his vast shelter, which is expected to be completed in 2018.

That’s an astonishing level of preparedness that only the wealthy can afford. Some would even call it overkill, though they don’t realize that disaster like an EMP or a nuclear war could plunge our nation into darkness for years at a time.


It would be interesting to know how many of these rich folks laying out millions of dollars for a bunker would actually claim to be born-again followers of Christ?

Maybe I would be surprised?

I'm going to guess that most of them are not.

If they are relying on their wealth to see them through the coming wrath of God, poured out in full measure during the final 7 years on earth leading up to Christ's return.....they will be SADLY MISTAKEN.

Revelation 6
15 Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves (MAYBE UNDERGROUND BUNKERS IN KANSAS?) and among the rocks of the mountains. 16 They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”

Ghoulish Game Urges Young People to Kill Themselves

Our adversary, the devil, prowls around like a hungry lion...looking for whom he may devour.

Sadly, he seems to have teenagers on his menu in a big way as of late.

Parents have become so stupid today and would rather try to be friends with their kids rather than doing the hard work of parenting.

"Mom, now that I'm 10 I want an iPhone 6 with unlimited texting, a high definition camera built in and unlimited internet access."

"No, let's wait until you are 14 and then we will talk about a phone."

"I hate you!  All my friends have one!  I'm the only 10 yr old in the whole school without a phone!" (door slams to bedroom)

"Lester, please don't hate me!  If you come out of your room and talk to me we can go to the AT&T store after dinner.  I don't want to fight!  It's been a really long day at the office already."

So now we have little kids running around holding high powered computers and porn factories in their hands and the parents have totally checked out and they rationalize their decision by saying, "It's just what kids are into these days."

Read it and weep.

The family of a Texas teen who hanged himself says their son was involved in a ghoulish online game that calls on participants to complete a series of tasks before taking their own lives, and some schools are warning parents about the so-called Blue Whale Challenge.

Jorge Gonzalez told San Antonio television station WOAI ( ) that he wanted to caution others after his son, Isaiah, was found hanging in his bedroom closet Saturday in the family's home with his cellphone propped up on a shoe to record his death.
A report on the boy's death from the San Antonio Police Department does not mention the challenge. But Gonzalez' family said in the days after the teen died, they pieced together from his social media and communication with friends that he had participated in the game.
His sister, Alexis, told the TV station that a person behind the challenge had gathered personal information from Isaiah and had threatened to harm the family.
The police department did not return a message left by The Associated Press asking whether authorities were investigating the game as a factor in the case. Many parents and other authorities are skeptical that the game actually exists, citing a lack of suicides directly attributed to it.
Agent Michelle Lee of the FBI's San Antonio office said the agency is not assisting in the investigation, but urged parents to monitor their children's online activities.
"It's a reminder of one of the many dangers and vulnerabilities that children face using various social media and apps online every day," Lee said. "Parents must remain vigilant and monitor their child's usage of the internet."


Ummmm.....that's not going to happen!

Consequently we are going to see Satan get his hooks into millions of kids who desperately need the supervision and loving discipline of their parents.....but since the family is crumbling and mom or grandma is trying to raise young men the best they can without a father...we can expect to see record porn addictions, record depression, record suicide, record drug use, record child stalkers all prowling amongst our teen population.

Jesus Painting Left at Islamic Center Investigated as "Hate Crime"

This story has to upset all the "Christians" who believe that Muslims don't have a problem with Jesus.

A large painting of Jesus on the cross was left at a Long Island Islamic center and police are investigating it as a hate crime. 

The painting was found Friday on a fence of the Hillside Islamic Center in North New Hyde Park, Nassau County police said. 


Wait a second....if Muslims are super-fond of Jesus...why the heck would a painting of Jesus hanging on a cross be considered a hate crime?

Oh wait....I know....because Muslims claim that Jesus was never crucified and that he never died to make atonement for all our sins....WHICH IS AT THE VERY CORE OF CHRISTIAN BELIEF!!

More evidence that Muslims are NOT worshiping the same God as Christians do.

Mammoth Asteroid Heading Toward Earth?

I'm going to guess that all of us have seen one of the many movies in the past 10 years that address the subject of a massive asteroid colliding with earth and killing almost everyone.  I can think of the move ARMAGEDDON staring Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck.  I know there was another called FINAL IMPACT, but there have been many more.

So is earth actually being prepared for the reality that a really big asteroid is coming?  Is the Prince of this earth going to attempt to set up defenses against what the Bible says will one day happen?

Revelation 8
The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood,

Hmmmmm.....something like a huge burning mountain thrown into the sea???  Sounds like a massive asteroid to me that will happen in the very last days.

NASA's Attempt to Redirect Mammoth Asteroid Headed for Earth Has End-of-Days Implications

A colossal asteroid named Apophis is predicted to pass disturbingly close to Earth before 2030, an ominous astral event which Jewish mystical sources describe as having grave implications for the End of Days.

On April 13, 2029, the Apophis asteroid, portentously named for the ancient Egyptian god of darkness and destruction, will pass within 18,600 miles of Earth, uncomfortably close by space distance standards. At 350 meters across, a mass of 20 million metric tons, and travelling 28,000 miles per hour, Apophis poses a formidable risk to the planet.

Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, notes that all this concern about celestial activity is described in Jewish sources as accompanying the Messiah.

I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not nigh; there shall step forth a star out of Yakov, and a scepter shall rise out of Yisrael, and shall smite through the corners of Moab, and break down all the sons of Seth. Numbers 24:17

“This Biblical reference to a star that will accompany the Messiah was expanded in Maimonides and the Zohar to include many other astrological phenomenon described in great detail,” Rabbi Berger told Breaking Israel News.

Rabbi Berger explained that astrological events pose a specific End-of-Days challenge for all of mankind.

“The Tower of Babel was built as a challenge to God when the flood of Noah’s generation was still fresh in the people’s minds,” the rabbi said. “It was an attempt to prove that God, via nature, did not rule over man. These events also will lead men to try to prove that they are above nature and God, and that they rule themselves.”

If Apophis hits Earth, it could create an explosion equal to 880 million tons of TNT, creating a crater about 1.25 miles across and almost 1,700 feet deep. Such an impact would be devastating. Though scientists believe there is little chance Apophis will hit earth on this pass, they expect the near-miss to disrupt the asteroid’s orbit, making its next pass in 2036 unpredictable.

In response to the growing threat of the pending asteroid hit, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced last Friday that they will launch a probe to alter the trajectory of a small asteroid as it approaches Earth as a first attempt at planetary defense. The project is named the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), scheduled to take place in October, 2022 coinciding with two smaller asteroids that are predicted to make a close pass to Earth.

“DART would be NASA’s first mission to demonstrate what’s known as the kinetic impactor technique — striking the asteroid to shift its orbit — to defend against a potential future asteroid impact,” said Lindley Johnson, NASA’s planetary defense officer in Washington, in the press release announcing the project.

The hope is that with the amount of time between the DART test and the looming danger of Apophis, NASA will find a way to circumvent the asteroid to protect Earth from tremendous carnage.


Wow!!  A 1700 foot deep crater over a mile across!!  That could certainly ruin a lot of people's days!!

Think about this:  Satan KNOWS that God's Word and prophecy can't be broken.  He KNOWS that what God has said will happen will eventually happen.  He has nothing to lose and everything to gain IF he can break God's prophetic word and then stand back and claim God is a the Prince of the Earth is going to stay focused on prophecies that are yet to be fulfilled....and one of them is a massive asteroid!!

So Satan may in fact be behind NASA's attempt to start to put their technology and resources into coming up with ways to prevent any asteroids from slamming into earth.

This article sounds almost exactly like the plot of the ARMAGEDDON movie staring Bruce Willis that I mentioned earlier.  In the movie, NASA sent up some oil drillers to land on the asteroid and drill a hole into it and then exploded a nuclear weapon in it to knock it's trajectory away from planet earth.

Let's continue to watch for more and more articles coming out warning about asteroids colliding with earth....cuz Satan knows it's coming.

Thankfully for those of us who follow Christ, we know we won't be here to witness this calamity.

GOP Ask Attorney General to Investigate Bernie Sander's "Religious Test"

Last month we posted a video of Senator Sanders grilling a Trump nominee who was a graduate of Wheaton College which is an evangelical Christian school.

Sanders said he couldn't support this nominee because he believed the Gospel which says that all people stand condemned if they reject Jesus.  Of course this is basic 101 Gospel theology and simply confirms what the New Testament says....but Bernie would have none of it!

He said he couldn't support this nominee because the nominee believes that ALL PEOPLE STAND CONDEMNED and only Jesus can save them.

Today we read that some GOP lawmakers saw the video of Sanders grilling the Christian.

Sixty-four Republican lawmakers sent a letter Friday asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reaffirm the constitutional prohibition against religious tests for public office.

Led by Rep. Mark Walker of North Carolina and Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma, the memo is a response to questions raised by Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vermont Independent, at a hearing last month to confirm one of President Trump’s nominees to the Office of Management and Budget.

“While there is continuous debate about the scope and meaning of the religion clauses in the First Amendment,” the letter reads, “the text of Article VI has been clear: no religious test shall ever (emphasis added) be required as a qualification to any public office or public trust under the United States.”

“Yet, questions were asked during a recent Senate Budget Committee hearing about an executive branch nominee’s adherence to the Christian faith,” the letter continues, “suggesting that such beliefs disqualified the nominee from service.”

At the hearing, Mr. Sanders took issue with an article written in 2016 by Russell Vought, a devout Christian who was nominated by Mr. Trump to be deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget.

In a blog for The Resurgent, Mr. Vought wrote that Muslims “do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ, his Son, and they stand condemned.”

The article cited John 3:18, which reads: “Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”

Mr. Sanders raised several questions about the blog post during the hearing and cited it as his reason for ultimately voting against Mr. Vought’s appointment.

“Do you believe—do you believe that that statement is Islamaphobic?” Mr. Sanders asked at the hearing.

“Absolutely not, senator,” Mr. Vought responded. “I’m a Christian, and I believe in a Christian set of principles based on my faith.”

“Do you believe that people in the Muslim religion stand condemned?” Mr. Sanders asked. “Is that your view?”

“Senator, I’m a Christian—”

“I understand you are a Christian,” Mr. Sanders interrupted. “But this country is made up of people who are not just—I understand that Christianity is the majority religion. But there are other people of different religions in this country and around the world. In your judgment, do you think that people who are not Christians are going to be condemned?”

“Thank you for probing on that question,” Mr. Vought responded. “As a Christian, I believe that all individuals are made in the image of God and are worthy of dignity and respect regardless of their religious beliefs.”

“I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who is what this country is supposed to be about,” Mr. Sanders said. “I will vote no.”

Sadly, even most Church-going Americans have fallen into the Oprah camp of believing there are lots of good paths to get to God....and that God loves people too much to condemn anyone to hell!

Sadly, this is a lie from the pit of hell.

There is NO NAME under all of heaven or below the earth which can save men from their fate EXCEPT Jesus.

Most Church-going Americans believed that message just a generation ago.  But today it has become politically now we have a Jewish Senator grilling a Christian and refusing to vote for him ONLY because he believes the words of His Savior!!

"I am the way, the truth and the life.  NO MAN comes to the Father except through me."

Jesus also said he didn't come to condemn the people of the world because the  People of the WORLD ALREADY STAND CONDEMNED!!....BUT...He came on rescue mission to save any of the condemned people IF THEY ACCEPT HIM!

If they don't accept him, just like the Muslims refuse to do, then they will stay in their condemnation.

I'ts really very simple Senator Sanders.

Let's hope the Attorney General sees it that way.
