Revelation 13:1-18, cont.


A. Last week in our study of the book of Revelation, we took a look at "the beastly trinity" of the "dragon" which is Satan 12:9, the beast, and the false prophet!

1. We studied them and their "ministries", and pointed out their "copycat" resemblance to the Holy Trinity of God!

2. We concluded that Satan, the "great dragon" will empower a "system or confederacy" that will rise up against the Lord and all that is holy!

a) One man will emerge from this political "group" while yet another will gain worldwide prominence as the only true "prophet" of God, uniting all the world's religions!

b) Anyone rejecting this system and the "mark" thereof, will be killed!

c) Chapter 13 concluded with this verse Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (NKJV)

(1)This morning it seemed appropriate to spend a little more time on this system of the Antichrist!

(2) This system is not something that is off in the future somewhere, it is in place now!!

(3) Matthew 16:1-3 Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said to them, "When it is evening you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red'; 3 "and in the morning, 'It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times. (NKJV)

(4) We are going to try very hard this morning to give you some "indicators" that the time is near!


A. I don't think that it was coincidence that when I came into the office this week there was a tape on my desk from FIREFIGHTERS FOR CHRIST by a Dr. Karl Sanders.

1. Dr. Sanders hold a Ph.D. in electronics and engineering and was the chief engineer responsible for the design and development of a microchip that is so small it can be injected under the skin with a hypodermic needle!

a) This chip was originally developed for the purpose of repairing severed spinal cords so that people would be able to walk again.

(1) There were over 100 people involved in this project, of which Dr. Sanders was senior engineer in charge!

(i) It is important to understand that the people involved in the creation of this chip had no idea that it would become all that it has.

(ii) They all believed they were doing it for very humanitarian reasons.

2. The investors in this project determined that spinal repairs alone were not sufficient to give a proper return on their investment so they began to look at other possibilities!

a) They found that because of the electrical impulse produced by the chip, that it altered certain behaviors!

(1) For instance, when placed in the pituitary gland of a female, it would put her immediately into menopause. The ability to conceive was immediately halted.

(a) This had already been tested in India!

b) They also found that certain frequencies would produce increased amounts of adrenaline.

c) This was called the "Rambo" chip and it has been tested with Vietnam veterans!

(1) As they began to research other marketing possibilities they discovered that one of the major problems was making people aware of their product and then getting them to accept it!

(2) Dr. Sanders was at the meeting where they decided to put the pictures of lost children on paper bags and milk cartons in an effort to make people aware that there was a need for keeping track of and locating missing children, (as well as Alzheimer's patients)!

(a) These meetings were held in Luxembourg and London, and Brussels, and many right in San Francisco.

(b) The identification and control of people were discussed as if they were cattle.

(c) Kissenger, and representatives of the CIA were present in these meetings!

B. Revelation 13:16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, (NKJV)

1. 5480 charagma (khar'-ag-mah) = a thing carved, sculpture, graven work:

2. 5482 charax (khar'-ax) = (to sharpen to a point, through the idea of scratching)

a) This sounds a lot like a hypodermic needle piercing the skin!

3. If you remember, last week we pointed out that the number 666 had a name and that name was Chi Xi Stigma.

a) 4742 stigma stig'-mah = from stizo = (to "stick", i.e. prick) = a mark pricked in or branded upon the body.

(1) One of Webster's Dictionary definitions calls "stigma", "a small spot, scar, or opening on a plant or animal!"

b) In the readout of this micro chip, there were nine levels of information that the designers wanted included. They were:

(1) Name, and an "image" or picture of your face.

(2) They also wanted Social Security #'s with the extra international digits.

(3) A fingerprint identification was also to be included.

(4) Physical description

(5) Family history

(6) Address

(7) Criminal record

(8) Occupation

(9) Income tax information

c) 5481 charakter khar-ak-tare' = an impression; the exact expression (the image) of any person or thing, marked likeness, precise reproduction in every respect, i.e facsimile.

(1) This microchip has exactly that, an "express image" of it's recipient!

(2) Recently under the new health-care program they are talking about the "womb-to-tomb" positive identification.

(3) There are bills before congress right now and others that have been passed that will allow a microchip of identification to be inject into your child at the time of birth!

(a) The president was given this authority and control under the Immigration Control Act (section 100) in 1986.

C. Revelation 16:2 So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. (NKJV)

1. This microchip is powered by a tiny lithium battery which has a recharging circuit built in.

2. This charging system operates and is regulated by the changes in body temperatures.

a) Dr. Sanders says that they spent 1 1/2 million dollars on research to determine an optimal primary and a secondary place in the body for this chip.

b) The data that returned said that there were 2 placed in the human body that the temperature changes most rapidly.

(1) They were #1, the forehead just below the hairline and #2, the back of the hand!!!!!

c) Dr. Sanders talked to a Doctor at Boston Medical Center and asked what would happen with that concentration of lithium if the chip should fail.

(1) The Doctor told him that you would get, "a grievous sore!"

(2) Note that in Rev 16:2 it says "sore" not sores in the plural. They were not all over the body, but in one location!

(a) Is it possible that when the Lord sends this angel out that all the lithium batteries will fail at the same time???

(b) Dr. Sanders point out that there were some breakdowns of the "Rambo" chip and they indeed did cause a "boil-like" grievous sore!

d) These chips are not secret!

(1) Their diagram description has been published in newspapers.

(2) The clinical insertion of the chip has been demonstrated on TV.

(3) The Montessori pre-schools in Florida have been used as test projects with the insertion of these chips in the children for the purposes of identification.

(a) There is an outfit called "InfoPET" that claims they can keep track of 1 billion pets to within 10 feet of their current location.

(b) If you can know the location and vital statistics of 1 billion pets at any given time, you can know the location and statistics of 1 billion people!

(i) And that is just one group or organization!

(ii) As an aside: the FCC has approved 2-way communications through your Television!

(iii) It will not only be possible to watch, but to be watched!

(iv) There is current technology to pick up conversations in your home through the crystal mouthpiece on your telephone even with it unplugged.

(v) Laser devices can use your windows as a diaphragm which acts like a big microphone enabling the listener to hear every conversation in your house!


A. Revelation 13:16-17 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (NKJV)

1. We are moving from credit cards to debit cards to the smart card (coming out of France).

2. Our current presidency has mentioned several times that it is a terrible waste to have so many cards when it could all be done with one card!

a) Right now, at Safeway in Canada, people are being given a 10% discount for using their debit cards.

b) People with cash simply wait in line!

c) You see the electronic transfer is immediate and the merchant gets his money without having to go to the bank and make deposits.

(1) You will soon see many commercials encouraging people to minimize their plastic and consolidate into one card!!

(2) It is very probable that this process will go from the Smartcard to the personal implant chip.

(3) It will be so convenient, fast, and cannot be ripped off!

(4) It is important to note that when President Clinton was asked about the microchip, his answer was, "Of course, of course I'm for it!"

(5) Many people became aware of "the new world order" through the Bush administration but I want you to take out a dollar bill!

(a) On the back in the left "seal" you will see the pyramid will the all seeing eye of Osarus.

(b) Under the pyramid in Latin you will see "Novus Ordo Seclorum" = New World Order.

(i) That was placed on the dollar bill in 1933.

3. The European Common Market became an entity on December 31st, 1992.

a) They are now responsible for all the environmental policies in Europe.

4. The Trilateral Commission, funded and began by David Rockefeller was able in 1972 to control oil supply and prices so effectively that the people of America sat in gas lines without ever asking why!

a) Dr. Sanders believes this was a conspiracy to bring about an equality between Asia, Europe, North and South America.

(1) He has photos to support the meeting where this took place and the decision was made.

b) For this "equality" to happen there needed to be a shift of wealth out of the United States.

(1) Because of this shortage of fuel, Americans began to buy import automobiles because of their gas mileage!

(2) Within approximately 1 1/2 years time we became debtor nation!

(a) All a part of this conspiracy.

(b) Many of our presidents have been actively involved in the Trilateral Commission.

5. Most people are not aware of the fact that the Federal Reserve System is neither Federal nor does it hold any reserves.

a) It is a private corporation owned by 5 banks that control the ebb and flow of our interest rates.

(1) The men who control this corporation don't even receive their salary from anywhere in America. Their pay comes from Europe!!

(a) Coincidence or Conspiracy??


A. Dr. Sanders has a flow chart that indicates (through a lengthy procedure that the major television networks ABC, NBC, and CBS are all owned by the David Rockefeller family!

1. Dr. Sanders once asked Harry Reasner why the media seemed to be unable to present a clear an unbiased view of the news to which he responded by putting his hands behind his back and replied, "It is out of our hands."

2. ABC has publicly admitted that they may have "altered" the outcome of this passed election, but their has not been even as much as a slap on the hand, nor an apology!

3. Have you ever wondered why Ross Perot came into the election when he admitted that he didn't want to be President of the United States?

a) He not only came into the election. He got out and then came in again!

b) In the overall scheme of things, his affect on the election was to pull enough votes to keep President Bush from being re-elected!

(1) Bush was "pro New World Order" but he had a few thing that got in the way.

(a) He was pro family!

(b) He was against abortion!

(c) And he was against the homosexual agenda!

(2) President Clinton seems to have nothing that would get in the way of a New World Order, nor the numbering of 666.

B. Clinton and Gore have a book that was released just about the time of the election.

1. In it they speak of "boot camps" where "first time offenders" would be given rigorous exercise discipline and a new respect for the law! (Page 72)

a) Dr. Sanders has visited many old abandoned military camps where the barbed wire has been turned around to keep people in instead of keeping them out!

b) Could these be for those who reject the New World Order and the mark thereof?

c) In this same book he speaks of every one carrying the Smartcard!

C. Over the years, there have been 13 "executive orders" given to the President by which he has almost total power in an "emergency!"

1. The 13 executive orders can all be consolidated and called into effect by enacting one of these orders that was ratified by President Carter!

a) One of the things that this allows the President is the possession and control of all public storage units?

2. FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Association has been given by law the right to take over your home and even put several families in it should it deem it necessary!
