Are you aware that the FDA recently approved the implanting of a microchip computer in the forehead or hand? Originally, biochip technology was developed in 1983 for monitoring fisheries. Now in just a little more than two decades, its usage is in over 300 zoos, 80 government agencies in at least 20 countries, horses, lab animals, endangered species, cars, apparel tracking, hazardous waste and now humans will soon be added to this fast-growing list. This computer chip is the size of a grain of rice and among other things, can contain the financial status of the person in which it is implanted. Does this not appear to be the clear and plain fulfillment of what the Bible foretold would be the money system of the beast and Great Tribulation? (Rev. 13:16-17; 14:9-12) Should this be crassly overlooked, or stand to further quicken us to the reality of the LORD’s soon return?
“And he (antichrist world ruler) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18
This prophecy found in the book of Revelation, known also as the apocalypse, informs us that there will be no buying or selling (purchases) without this “mark” in the right hand or forehead.
“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” Revelation 14:9-12
With the growing threat and reality of identity theft, such a bio-based money system seems inevitable. In fact, with a half a billion dollars in identity theft in America last year alone, we are poised for a major change in the way we transact business and with lots of logic and reason, all in the name of security. The incremental transition into a cashless society is occurring in a gradual and definite fashion.
This “mark” will enable the government, ultimately the evil antichrist, to track the whereabouts of every citizen.
Any person alive for the last 2 decades can observe that our monetary system is transitioning to make things more convenient and safe, yet, could there be a more hidden and far reaching reason these things are coming to pass in our day? A reason that may have grave consequences upon those who go with the flow and allow themselves to be branded, all in the name of convenience and tolerance? Could this all be in fulfillment of the prophecy John, the apostle of Jesus, gave 2,000 years ago?
If implanting becomes successful, a chip will be able to be purchased and implanted for merely $150-$200. A small price to pay, but will it be worth the ultimate price if the prophecy turns out to be true? Society today has learned the way of ease and laziness. We live in a fast-paced world where 24 hour drive-thrus, the internet and electronic check-out counters allow us to get in and out in a matter of just minutes. With the biochip, or Verichip, instead of minutes to process transactions, it will take only seconds. The world awaits what technology will unveil on us next.
Did our Maker foretell of this hour and technology?
“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.” Isaiah 46:9-10
It may be noted that over 300 specific prophecies by the Old Testament Jewish prophets were clearly fulfilled in Jesus Christ, or will be at His second coming. A few brief examples include: His Pre-Existence- God said that man would be made in his image and it was so that all things were made by him. (Gen. 1:26,28; John 1:1-4; Eph. 3:9; Col. 1:16-17) His Birth- It was said hundreds of years prior that Christ would be born in Bethlehem and so he was born in Bethlehem. (Micah 5:2; Matthew 2:1) His Death- It was written that Christ would die between two thieves and sure enough Christ died on the cross between two thieves. (Isaiah 53:12; Luke 22:37; Mark 15:27-28) The Bible is unique and distinct in all history (HIS-story) in that it is the only Book which foretells what it fulfills, which Christians the world over believe reveals its divine Authorship.
