Prophecy Updates // Pastor Gene Pensiero

Calvary Hanford

Over a quarter of the Bible is prophetic in nature, with about 500 prophecies yet to be fulfilled. Since that is the case, you'd expect trends and news to line up with what the Bible prophesied. Each week we take a look at these trends and see how they corroborate what the Bible has said for thousands of years.

Control over buying and selling involves control over pretty much everything. If the government wants to restrict your movements, they will. If they want to track you, they will. You get the idea. We are experiencing on a small scale what this kind of control will be full scale in the future. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

The future is an intrusive surveillance state. Facial recognition, retinal scans, palm scans, and implanted chips are the tip of the technology iceberg that exist and are currently in use. Any of them could be used by government to restrict buying and selling, restrict travel, or pretty much anything else. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

John saw a future in which the buying and selling of goods and services would require participation in a global system. The government will be able to control a person’s life to be sure they comply with its mandated behaviors. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

The rapid progress in Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a disturbing trend. The military is charging forward with AI combat applications. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

The rapid progress in Artificial Intelligence is a disturbing trend. AI is the ability of machines to mimic the human mind. The ultimate goal of AI is to create an object that can think like a human. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

We read about a Last Days global religious movement in the seventeenth chapter of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. It is referred to as “Babylon” because it is the final form of the religious rebellion at the Tower of Babel. We therefore expect movement towards a global religion, or at least an “ecumenical” movement, meaning […]

There is an intriguing passage in the Revelation about an image, the person we call the false prophet, and the Beast – another name of the antichrist. An image of the Beast is going to come to life. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

The Book of the Revelation describes the antichrist having authoritarian control over his citizens. In the future Great Tribulation technology will access the global grid and determine a person’s level of participation in society. It will be possible to restrict purchases and participation. The technology is ready for this digital dictatorship. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

In Revelation 13, humans “make” a sentient “image to the beast” that will have power over life and death. It will order and execute the deaths of people who refuse to worship the antichrist. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

In His prophetic sermon we call the Olivet Discourse, Jesus said the End Times would be like the days of Noah. Jesus specifically referenced the strange marriages in the days of Noah. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

A story that didn’t receive much attention may be the most important thing that happened this week, at least from the perspective of Bible prophecy – America’s unfriending of the nation of Israel. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

COVID19 is not prophetic. However, the methods and mandates that are being utilized globally to combat it are predictive of the type of the socio-economic system that will play a significant role in the future government of the antichrist. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Citizens in the future Great Tribulation will be mandated to participate in a system by which they must produce proof of compliance in order to be allowed to work or shop or dine or attend entertainment. Without proof, their livelihood and lifestyles will be restricted. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

A universal vaccine passport is not the Mark of the Beast. However, the way the leaders of the world are talking, they will establish a system like what the Revelation predicts will be in place in the Great Tribulation. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Biometrics, Artificial Intelligence, cashless commerce, the manipulation of human DNA, global government, the exponential growth of human knowledge, and the rebirth of Israel as a nation are all areas we see corroborating the End Times prophecies of the Bible. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

The trend this week has been mandating COVID19 vaccination and the requirement to show proof in order to function in society. Is this paving the way for the type of system the Antichrist will use in the Great Tribulation? (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

There is a lot of talk about vaccine passports. How does this line up with what we expect in light of Bible prophecy? (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Jul 25

5 min 59 sec

Mandatory vaccination that requires proof for a person to travel, for employment, dining, entertainment, and anything else that a government deems necessary, sounds too much like the Last Days prediction that at some point everyone on Earth will be subjected to a contactless, cashless system of commerce involving a mark on your hand or forehead. […]

We have for many decades understood from Bible prophecy that the End Times would feature a cashless, contactless global system of economics. Something in or on a person’s hand or forehead will allow them to conduct all necessary business and commerce. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Facial recognition has become more popular and more accurate. It is one of the biometric technologies that could be utilized to take control over a society in the way described in the Revelation. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Biometrics, Artificial Intelligence, cashless commerce, the manipulation of human DNA, increased surveillance, global government, and the exponential growth of human knowledge are all areas we see corroborating the prophecies of the Bible. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

The Mark of the Beast is presented in the Revelation as a means by which the governments of the future will control every aspect of a person’s life. With this “mark” you will be able to participate in society. Without it you will be severely restricted or cut off entirely. Communist China is showing us […]

John predicted the mark of the beast over 2000 years ago at a time when soldiers were getting paid with salt. He saw technology we take for granted. Here are a few of the biometric advances that could easily fit John’s vision of the future. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Today, the dreaded mark of the Beast sounds like things we read about every day. We are definitely trending towards secure biometrics. Palm vein scans, retinal scans, implanted chips, could qualify as hand & forehead marks. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

The possibility of enslaving citizens by some sort of biometric “mark” is fast becoming reality. The technology exists, right now, for everyone to use their fingerprints, or their palm prints, or a vein scan, or a retinal scan, or a wearable device, or an implanted chip, to identify themselves, and conduct all their business.

In the Revelation we see an image of the Beast, and a prophecy that no one may buy or sell without his mark. How might this compare to the emerging social credit systems we see today? (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

It would seem that the apostle John was shown how what we call biometrics would be used to surveil and control the lives of those under antichrist’s reign. You would expect that the nations of the world to be trending toward a surveillance state made possible by biometric. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

People ask, “Does COVID19 have anything to do with Bible prophecy?” My answer is, “No, not directly.” By that I mean it is not one of the plagues we read about in the Revelation. Indirectly, however, COVID19 has a lot to do with Bible prophecy in that it is accelerating several prominent end times predictions. […]

Imagery in both the Book of Daniel and the Revelation leads us to believe that the End Times will feature a global government, and a global economy. But globalism is exactly what we are seeing on account of COVID19. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Until recently, unless you lived in China, it has been hard to believe that such a thing like the mark of the beast could be forced upon a freedom-loving public. In just a few months, however, COVID19 has effectively changed that. Around the world, citizens are going to be forced to receive vaccinations or suffer […]

The Revelation of Jesus Christ seems to describe what commentators call a one-world government during the future Great Tribulation. You’d therefore expect a serious movement towards a more global governance to gain traction before the Tribulation. Pastor Gene Pensiero www.calvaryhanford.com www.calvaryhanford.com/prophecy

The Mark of the Beast. Believers and nonbelievers alike have some familiarity with it. It is something having to do with your hand or forehead that will allow you to identify yourself, and to conduct all of your business. Biblically, it seems to be a system in place globally before the Beast (the antichrist) declares […]

The final book of the Bible, the Revelation, predicts what the world will look like in the End Times – especially during the seven year Great Tribulation. The world will be under the rule of one government, one economic system, and one leader. A global, one-world order, is being openly pursued by many of the […]

China has developed what is called, “Social Credit.” It is a system that, quite literally, controls the participation of citizens in everyday purchases and activities. Each citizen is given a social credit score, with rewards for those who have a high rating and punishments for those with low scores. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)

Indirectly, the global response to COVID-19 does potentially have a prophetic impact. We’ve been pointing out for decades that, in the last days and then in the Great Tribulation, the world will be united in commerce. There will be some sort of digital and biometric technology by which everyone can be identified, and can conduct […]
