ChinaAid recently reported on the arrest of Elder Zhang Chunlei by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in May 2021. Elder Zhang pastors the Guiyang Ren Ai Reformed Church.
The CCP has been cracking down on Christians throughout the regime, but what was unusual about Chunlei’s arrest is that he has been charged with “suspected fraud” for collecting offerings during church services, a tradition used by churches around the world.
According to the report, Elder Zhang was interrogated for 24 hours straight and remains in custody. His wife was also arrested and kept in leg chains, but later released.
It may just be a coincidence, but one of the major ways that the spirit of the Antichrist will attack in the end times is through finances, preventing people from buying or selling unless they take the Mark of the Beast.
17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. (Revelation 13:17 NIV)
I have reported in the past about the Communist regime’s social credit system that monitors people online activity and physical activity through 100s of millions of video cameras.
People are given points for behaviour approved by the CCP, such as buying memberships in the Communist Party. Points are also taken away for un-communist behaviour such as going to church or being critical of the CCP.
If a person’s points fall too low, they are prevented from buying such things as airplane tickets and even property.
