Taking a page out of the Book of Revelation, Communist China’s tyrant for life, Xi Jinping, is proposing the world embrace a system using QR codes that would track every citizen of the world. He made the recommendation during a recent virtual meeting of the G20. His justification for this is to keep tabs on the spread of the COVID-1984 virus that originated in China. China has already been using the system, that tracks people in real time, in a few of its cities as another layer of oppression.
The Daily Wire explains:
Chinese President Xi Jinping is pushing for a global tracking system using QR codes to monitor people and any potential exposure to the coronavirus, which originated in China.
“China mandated the widespread use of QR-based health certificates earlier this year. The system, which uses an electronic barcode to store a person’s travel and health history, has been credited with helping to curb the spread of the virus,” CNN reported. “The code issues users with a color code based on their potential exposure to the novel coronavirus. The colors are like traffic lights — green is safest, then amber and finally red.”
Of course, with a megalomaniac like Jinping proposing the idea, you know that the software will do more than just track COVID-1984.
The New York Times explains:
But a New York Times analysis of the software’s code found that the system does more than decide in real time whether someone poses a contagion risk. It also appears to share information with the police, setting a template for new forms of automated social control that could persist long after the epidemic subsides.
The Times’s analysis found that as soon as a user grants the software access to personal data, a piece of the program labeled “reportInfoAndLocationToPolice” sends the person’s location, city name and an identifying code number to a server. The software does not make clear to users its connection to the police. But according to China’s state-run Xinhua news agency and an official police social media account, law enforcement authorities were a crucial partner in the system’s development.
The Chinese Communist Party has already encorporated a similar social credit system to prevent people from buying or selling.

The Book of Revelation speaks of the emergence of a world tracking system, and of course you would need software to make it work:
15 And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. 16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, 17 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. (Revelation 13:15-17 ESV)
Notice how verse 15 states that people will be required to worship the image of the beast. READ: Chinese Government Tells Churches to Worship the Communist Party or be Closed
