Sweden may be ahead of every other country in the world as they come ever closer to a cashless society. According to Malin Rising writing for the Huffington Post, most government run institutions don’t accept cash of any kind, including transportation, payment of fees and services, obtaining licenses, and paying taxes (Image: Flickr, Images_of_Money). Most banks no longer accept or provide cash as part of their routine operations with customers. Businesses also have started to accept only digital payments made with credit or debit cards or by using a smart phone. Even churches are installing card readers to make donations. It is said that Sweden uses cash for only about 3% of their entire economic engine. The Bible predicts that at the end a world empire will arise that will require a mark in the right hand or forehead, and that no one would be able to buy or sell without it (Rev. 13:16-18). The march toward a cashless society is a key step to instituting the Mark of the Beast and the final system before Christ returns.
