Singapore to go cashless
Some years ago we preached many of our messages in the
country of Singapore and were amazed to see how clean everything appeared to be.
Although it was a highly controlled society, we saw also that there were rules
in that country that did not apply to any other country on earth, as far as we
For example, chewing gum was banned, as was smoking in public
places. We now read an article taken from the South East Asia media, entitled
"Gum ban may be eased - SINGAPORE may relax ban on chewing gum to help smokers
give up their habit.
A pharmaceutical firm has asked for nicotine gum to be
exempt. Importing and selling gum has banned since 1992 because of the mess it
makes on pavements.
Anyone caught smuggling it into the country faces a year in
prison and a $3,500 fine. Penalties for smoking in public buildings and
discarding cigarette butts are equally severe."
And then in The Belfast Telegraph, 2000, we read "SINGAPORE'S
government has made its first move to make cash a thing of the past.
The pledge came as officials in the wealthy southeast Asian
city-state today revealed that 'e-money' -– payments stored on computer
chips -– will be legal tender by the year 2008.
All shops, restaurants and other service providers will be
legally required to accept e-money as part of the futuristic plan for a cashless

There's no point in fighting technology,' said Low Siang Kok, Singapore's
Hello, Hello, Hello. Are we moving on to the mark of the
beast as mentioned in the book of Revelation 13:16-18?
As we have said over the years, we have waited for this time
when cash is cancelled and finally a silicon chip is implanted into the right
hand or forehead for buying and selling.
Read with me now from the book of Revelation 13:16-18, a
passage of scripture given by God to the apostle John, in about the year 96 AD:
"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: And
that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the
beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath
understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and
his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
It is our contention here at this office that should the
money systems of the world fail, the mark of the beast could well be introduced
before the year 2008, as has been suggested.
Our advice is: Don't take the silicon chip in your body,
but do receive the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart.
