Mark of the Beast?


A recent article with this quote from Revelation 13:16-17 piqued my interest:

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.…

Who is the beast and what is the mark? Whatever your beliefs or feelings on this passage may be, the new RFID tracking chip may make you rethink your preconceived ideas. RFID chips are certainly not new, and they are in all of our cell phones, ipads and some have their dogs implanted with them. And if you don’t know what RFID chips are, they are wireless non-contact devices that use radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects.

However, with miniaturization, these small chips as noted on the above picture (seen compared to a grain of sand) can be easily placed on every human on the planet. The procedure would theoretically take less than a second with the right implantation device (such as a modified syringe) and only require a local anesthetic. This concept may seem foreign but we’ve been taking baby steps towards this point for years. The NSA already willingly admits they have RFID information on all of our cell phones for years and can easily track us at an time.

Is it such a leap to make it mandatory by the government to have one of these chips implanted in all of us? What if they advertised that it would be a good way to monitor your kids—especially if something happened to them? It would play on every parent’s greatest fears, and many would flock to get them. Then, what if the government made the chip free for everyone under the age of 16? I then possibly foresee that if this happens, the government would next say that no child is allowed in school if they don’t have the chip.

I hope you all can see the domino effect. Where will it lead? Well, one hint can be found in the quote above from the Book of Revelation: in order to do any commerce such as buy or sell it would have to be done through the chip. If this sounds crazy, it makes perfect sense if you are the one’s levying out taxes. Just think of all the new venues of taxes the government could collect.

I’m not an alarmist. However, the RFID chip does sound eerily similar to the mark of the beast. Just think of what I have written the next time you hear or read anything about the chip. It may make you stop and take a second look.
