“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:” Revelation 13:15,16
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.” Revelation 2:7
The Apostle Paul predicted to arise (2 Thessalonians 2:3,4); and Protestant Reformers since the Middle Ages have identified a secular political-religious system as the Beast, described in Revelation 17:4-6.
This beast described as a woman symbolizes a Church, whose headquarters are in Rome.
The Book of Revelation also describes another secular political system as being the Image of the first Beast (Revelation 13:11).
Both systems work for the same purpose:
OCCUPY THE PLACE OF THE LORD JESUS in the minds, attitudes, and general lives of people and nations on Earth; therefore it is identified as the ANTICHRIST.
Information and technology are expressions of civilization for good or evil.
The human being has developed the technology to be useful, to get closer to each other, to overcome distances, to be more economical and to provide the gain of time; but they became a hostage of their technologies; as a creator hostage of the creature.
People should not become even more hostage to dehumanized machines and systems, to the detriment of judgment and justice.
