Bitcoin and Bible Prophecy: What Evidence Exists in Scripture That Foretells of the Cryptocurrency?

By    |   Tuesday, 05 May 2015 05:52 PM

Bitcoin is a form of digital currency. It uses the Internet instead of regular paper money and the transactions can be done at a fraction of the cost. Some Bible prophecy advocates consequently interpret Scripture's Book of Revelation as having predicted — and warned about — the rise of the Bitcoin.

Scripture says during the "tribulation years," the international economic system will undergo a radical and massive shift from what the world has known in past generations to be a one-world government and economy.

According to Biblia.com, the Book of Revelation says that circumstances at the end of time will cause "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."

Being digital and outside the current system, some believe Bitcoin is consequently in a position to become or morph into the one-world currency "the Beast" (meaning the anti-Christ) will use to gain economic control worldwide.

According to The End of Time blog, the last economy on earth will be a digital one since the Bible says the "Mark of the Beast" will be present either in or on the hand or forehand, and having it will enable people to buy things.

"How it will likely work is that at the point of sale the mark will be passed over a digital mechanism that will verify it as authentic and at the same time withdraw the money," the End of Time blog wrote. "If all peoples on the globe have a mark (except Christians who refuse) then controlling it as a day in and day out currency must mean the data behind it is centralized, accessible and digital."
