    To Christians who literally believe in the book of Revelations in relation to the so-called 666

    number of the beast, the rapture, & tribulations, if socioeconomic systems decreed that you must have a microchip in order to protect, feed yourself & your family, not to mention conduct business, medical, & other transactions, would you have the microchip implanted in you?  If not, in your mind, would you rather let yourself & your family suffer deprivations because you insist in believing in some hyperbolic premise?  Why?  Why not?

    As a christian, I would not accept the chip implant or any other bio metric id. For the reason of privacy and the first Amendment and our Constitution. That being said, it is fascinating that a book written over 2000 years ago foresee such stuff as this and other technological marvels such as the TV and the web...and the conflict in the Middle East. Makes one wonder?

    True Jackie you really have hit a thought, why have this book been preserved so long, with the many opposer who failed to get rid of it , any human can have access to it and posses many copies, people life spans have not outlived the word of God. Even though it is in book form
    It's relics unearth are in cuneiforms, papas,  stones, found tiny scrolls of silver
    Even the preservation of God's personal name YHWH, Tetragrammaton,  today  as in our Language we say Jehovah.
    All preserved.
    Not by human hands but a higher Sovereign then humans.

    I've already thought this through, and I am worried about it.  Under no circumstances will I ever get that microchip.  Even if it weren't the mark of the beast, I would not want that implanted in me.  No way.  So if that happens, I guess I will have to starve, be homeless, and depend on my family, who I would try to dissuade from getting it themselves. Going to hell is not an option for me.  That's all there is to it.  Luckily this chip thing won't happen for a long time.

      Our Savior offers us an escape from the coming 7 years of hell-on-earth. In Luke 21:36 we read that he told us to watch and pray that we may do just that - escape. This escape is the rapture of His church BEFORE the Tribulation! Hallelujah!

    Well GM, if you studied and understood the Bible, even tried to understand it you'd know that Christians will not be on earth when the people are forced to take the mark of the beast. The rapture comes first at the beginning of the Tribulation and the mark of the beast, “666,” occurs after the rapture and sometime after the middle of the tribulation.

    So why do you address Christians who literally believe in the book of Revelations in relation to the so-called 666? They will not be there.

    Besides nothing in the Bible reveals exactly what the mark of the beast is so why would you assume it to be a microchip.

    I guess you are going to have a hard time finding Christians, Christians who literally believe in the book of Revelations in relation to the so-called 666, to answer your question since they won't be on earth if they really literally believe in the book of Revelations.

    Nice try GM but if you insist on posing theoretical questions about something you no nothing about you aren't making yourself appear enlightened, rather the opposite.

      What if the Rapture happens at the end of the Tribulation?

      It doesn't, study and compare that theory with the others and you will see its flaws.

      Plus there will be new Christians after the rapture due to the 144,000 witnesses

      New Christians, not the Christians this Q&A is addressing as those don't exist today or aren't believers today, before the rapture or they would have been raptured when the rapture occurred..

    I would refuse to take the mark of the beast even if I am executed for it.  From what I studied in the Bible that is an unforgivable sin.

      "Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus&for the word of God,who had not worshiped the beastorhis image&had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands&they lived and reigned with Christ.
