The Cash Alliance website says: “As we are based at the United Nations, our Alliance is neutral on what types of digital payment platforms or channels are appropriate in each market. We recognize that digital payment solutions will vary across geographies and that, as innovation is a constant in this sector, digital payment options will also change quickly.”

It adds: “What matters to us is that the shift from cash to digital payments is done responsibly and builds the foundations for inclusive growth. We do not want to abolish physical cash, but rather ensure that people have choice in how they make and receive payments. It is important for people to have digital payment options which are responsible and ‘better than cash’ so, for example, a woman can have a payment account in her own name, which she manages.”

According to New Testament Scripture, once entrenched in power, the beast (Antichrist) and the power behind him (Satan) will move to establish absolute control over all peoples of the earth to accomplish their true end, the worship Satan has been seeking ever since being thrown out of heaven (Isaiah 14:12-14).

One way they will accomplish this is by controlling all commerce, and this is where the idea of a one-world currency comes in. Revelation 13:16-17 describes some sort of satanic mark which will be required in order to buy and sell. This means anyone who refuses the mark will be unable to buy food, clothing or other necessities of life.

Revelation 13:16-18:

“Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.”

“No doubt the vast majority of people in the world will succumb to the mark simply to survive. Again, verse 16 makes it clear that this will be a universal system of control where everyone, rich and poor, great and small, will bear the mark on their hand or forehead.

“There is a great deal of speculation as to how exactly this mark will be affixed, but the technologies that are available right now could accomplish it very easily,” says Got Questions – Your Questions, Biblical Answers:

The site also says: “Those who are left behind after the Rapture of the Church will be faced with an excruciating choice—accept the mark of the beast in order to survive or face starvation and horrific persecution by the Antichrist and his followers.

“But those who come to Christ during this time, those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life (Revelation 13:8), will choose to endure, even to martyrdom.”
