Did the BBC just announce the UK trial of the Beast System?

There has been much speculation about just what the “beast system” or “the mark of the beast” spoken of in revelation will be.

“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: 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. (Revelation 13:15-18)

(Revelation 13:15-18)

Something is going to be put into place, some system that will mean that only a certain group of people will be able to “buy or sell.” Only those who have the mark.

What kind of system could be put into place, what system that would cover much, if not all of the globe, that would mark some as being able to do certain things, and others would not be able to do them?

There are a number of things that we could speculate about. We could see the removal of all cash, and the making of it possible to buy and sell only with a digital identity. We are certainly a long way down this road.

But another possibility is that we are given a digital identity that is a passport to do certain things, like… go to the pub or football… or maybe to go to the shops. Cue the BBC. “Covid passport trials to begin this month.”

BBC News: Covid passport trials to begin this month.

We were first told that the Government had NO plans for Covid Passports. But that some business may wish to enforce the need to have the vaccine before you could say, fly on their plains. But now the government is, “to trial a series of measures in England, including Covid passports, to allow the safe return of sports matches, events and nightclubs.”

We were also told that this was a two week lockdown to flatten the curve.

The passports would, apparently, “show if a person had been vaccinated, had a recent negative test, or natural immunity.”

The BBC assures us that, “Any use of passes would be “time-limited”, the sports minister has said.”

But we know that powers once taken up by governments are very seldom let go.

Now. I am not suggesting that the vaccine is in some way associated with the Beast System. Though there was talk of using Luciferase, (an oxidative enzymes that produce bioluminescence), as a marker to show who has had the Covid vaccine at one time. Luciferase… who does that remind me of?

Nor am I saying that the current Covid Passports are the beast system. But boy are we moving towards a time when unless you have… something, some mark or the like, you will not be able to…

This looks very much to me like a trial run for the future beast system.

The Church of England – now beyond doubt heretical!

The Church of England has this week released its Living in Love and Faith resources, addressing the issues of identity, sexuality, relationships and marriage and how they all fit within the bigger picture of the gospel.

The Wilberforce Academy’s Ben John reacts to the official Living in Love and Faith trailer, questioning where all of this might lead the Church of England.

This is not just a few liberal churches within the Church of England, this is from the very top. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Archbishop Justin Welby, is standing right with this and is promoting the acceptance of biblical abhorrent relationships. Along with him is The Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell. The Archbishop of York is a senior bishop in the Church of England, and second only to the archbishop of Canterbury. The head and the… as it where deputy head of the Church of England are standing in support of this project. A project that appears to be not only condoning wrong ideas about marriage and sex but designed to move the thinking of the people in the pew toward accepting these lifestyles.

Now the Church of England is not the same as the church in England. But it is representative of the majority of ‘churchgoers’ and has a presence in almost every city, town and village in the land.

Even Brenton Tarrant can be saved (such is the grace of God).

No doubt many people are in a state of shock over the actions of Brenton Tarrant – who shot and killed a number of Muslim worshippers last week, in New Zealand. Indeed, the sense of outrage that many feel over this may even prompt them to say that if there is a God, then He will never forgive Mr Tarrant; and, furthermore, if there is a Heaven then the likes of this person will never go there.

However, such reasoning ignores the clear teaching of the New Testament. While one doesn’t condone what happened, and we are all naturally displeased by Mr Tarrant’s actions, to say that he will never go to Heaven is to undermine one fundamental principle – the Glorious Grace of God as shown in Christ.

Scripture clearly teaches that we are all sinners and none of us deserves Heaven. God is so Holy that He cannot allow any trace of sin into His presence. Moreover, because of our sins, we are all cut off from God, and we all deserve His judgement for eternity. No doubt when people read this they will say “ok I accept that I’ve done a few bad things but I’ve never murdered anyone” – my answer is simple, “yes you have, if you’ve hated someone you have committed murder”. (see Matthew 5 v 21-22). Moreover, there is a sense in which we have all killed Jesus Christ, the Son of God, by our sins; but we’ll look at that in a moment.

No, Mr Tarrant doesn’t deserve God’s forgiveness and a home in Heaven when he dies but, then again, none of us do. As the Bible says – “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” Romans 3 v 23.

Is there hope then for Brent Tarrant? Yes, a thousand times, yes! It is most fortunate that he was captured alive because it means that, while in prison he can hear, or read, the Gospel. If he is given a New Testament he can read that God so loved him, He sent Jesus to die for his sins and rise again to be his Saviour. If Mr Tarrant truly repents of his sins and accepts Christ as his personal Saviour then the slate is wiped clean and he is forgiven by God. Of course, he will have to stay in prison but at least his soul will be saved.

This brings me back to the statement I made earlier about how we all killed Christ (in bold type above). I remember as a young man being on a beach mission when I was “press-ganged” into the singing group (they must have been desperate!). One of the songs had the words “I’m the one who shouted crucify, I’m the one who led Him up to die”. Because the sacrifice of Jesus is sufficient for the sins of all mankind there is a sense in which we all participated in putting Christ on the cross. Therefore, we all had a hand in the greatest crime in history.

Before condemning Brent Tarrant, let us all examine our own hearts and ask if we have been cleansed of our sins, or do we still have the stain of murder on our hearts., and in our souls.

Revival or revolution by Bob Hutton

This is a re-post from Bob Hutton’s blog THE GOSPEL TRUTH


I recently watched a dramatised documentary on the French Revolution and, while, I can understand the deep resentment caused by the dire poverty of the 1700s (the Aristocracy living in opulent splendour) it became apparent as time went on that this cataclysmic event was inspired, not by a genuine attempt to right social wrongs, but by a strong humanistic motive. The leaders were godless men who had no time for the teachings of the Bible and harped on about the “Rights of Man”. After having killed the king and his wife, they then instituted a great terror which meant that anyone who was suspected of having any sympathies for the “old order” lost their heads, quite literally!

This terrible time then culminated in the leaders turning on one another in an orgy of blood-letting. As this madness was creeping into England, God, in His mercy, brought a revival and, instead of many thousands being butchered on the guillotine, as in France, the same number were being saved from their sins through faith in Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

As the 1800s progressed the effects of those two events (revolution in France and revival in England) became clear – France had a century of huge instability coupled with political upheaval and heavy military defeats; England had a time of economic growth and saw an expansion of a worldwide empire. While not everything about the British Empire was good, it did facilitate the spread of the Gospel as missionary endeavour increased exponentially.

Fast forward to the present time and what do we see? The residual benefits of the 18th-century revival have long gone; a largely godless Parliament has, over the last 50 years, passed a string of anti-Christian laws which show a blatant disregard for the teachings of God’s infallible word. The effects of this are obvious for all to see – a government in perpetual crisis, rampant wickedness and immorality, unnatural perversions being openly promoted and encouraged, the persecution of evangelical Christians, a rapidly rising crime rate and, while people are being openly butchered on the streets in broad daylight, a Police “service” that is more concerned with soothing the hurt-feelings of perverts than going after the real criminals.

As we approach 2019 it appears that the situation, despite the best intentions of well-meaning “do-gooders”, is going to get worse. The only hope, as it was in the 1700s is, revival – the politicians, police and liberal church leaders have all failed. Only God can save this country now.

One hopes that, despite the fact we have treated Him so badly, He will yet have mercy on this land, there is no other way the country can be saved – “….in wrath, remember mercy” (Habakkuk 3 v 2)


Thanks Bob,

Few people today have the perception to recognise that it was the preaching of the gospel that saved Britain from a bloody overspill of the French Revolution, not the responsibility that the church in the UK has for the decline in the morality and possible coming judgement on Britan. The church should restrain the shedding of innocent blood, but just a week or two ago I was reporting on the blessing of an abortion facility by the church.

Hillsong Pastor Claims “Evolution is Undeniable”

ChristianJournal.net is reporting that a Hillsong Worship Pastor Claims Evolution is Undeniable And That God Created the Big Bang

On June 25th, 2018, Joel Timothy Houston, one of Hillsong Church leadership, tweeted that “God created the Big Bang,” and that “Evolution is undeniable.” Hillsong Church is based out of Sydney, Australia but also has a church in New York City.

Joel Houston, the eldest son of the founders of Hillsong, Brian and Bobbie Houston, and the co-pastor of the Hillsong Church in New York City tweeted on Monday his support of the evolutionary theory and the big bang.

His tweet reads “Evolution is undeniable—created by God as a reflective means of displaying nature’s pattern of renewal in pursuance of God’s Word—an ode to the nature of the creative God it reflects—and only ever in part—not the SOURCE! Science and faith aren’t at odds. God created the Big-Bang.”

Joel Houston is arguably the most popular and influential Christian Musician in the world because of the number of followers he has gained over the course of his career as a musician.

One of Joel’s songs “So Will I (100 Billion X)” is a song off of the album, There Is More, recorded live at ‪the Hillsong Worship and Creative Conference in Sydney, Australia. Part of the lyrics in this song says: “And as You speak/A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath/Evolving in pursuit of what You said.”

When asked if he believes in the “Big Bang theory” or “literal six day creation,” Houston said, “It means I believe God created everything and His Word cane first..”

He later added, “If God’s creative process was an easy working week, or finely crafted over six-ages of millennia, does it make Him any more or less God?” Houston posed. “Or us any more or less created in His image? Either way, it was an unfathomably wonderful six-day process, however you think to see it.”

So what?

If you are saying Evolution/Creation, big deal, he still loves Jesus and sings about the gospel.

Well, there are a few things we need to think about.

  • Was death the tool used by God to create, or the result of our sin?
  • If death violence and destruction were the tools used by God to create the world, what does God mean by “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good…” (Genesis 1:31)?
  • If the world before sin was a world filled with death violence and destruction, what are we being saved from in this world? Will the New Heavens and the New Earth be like the world before sin, filled with death violence and destruction?

In my opinion, Joel Timothy Houston does not believe in the same God I serve nor can preach the historic Christian Gospel. We should, therefore, be very careful about the use of any of his songs in our worship.
