Could Verisign Technology Be "The Mark" Of The Beast In The Near Future?
You may be surprised to find out that your government (or at the hidden decision makers behind the government) is planning to "safely identify" each of us with a radical new biochip technology. Expectations are that these could be mandatory as soon as 2017 - maybe sooner.
This is not science fiction. This is a reality. People are already signing up for this, and they are doing it proudly. On the flip side of this, many religious experts and regular God fearing citizens have not missed the fact that this chip could be "the mark" spoken of in the Book of Revelation.
Now more than ever people are turning to the Bible for these answers. There seems to be an awakening in the minds of the people. Does the Bible say anything about a one-world government, currency, or bank in the final days?
The Bible never says "one-world government" or currency, but we can deduct from the scripture of the Book of Revelation, among others in the New Testament, that a one-world government must be in place at the time of the great tribulation.
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
And he 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.
The Bible even gives specific locations for "the mark", although many believe that there will be many ways to be marked by the beast. What the Bible says:
And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
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:
Revelation is not the only book that talks about the placement of the mark. Yet, you can see two instances of the Bible telling us that the mark will be in our hand or forehead.
Why Christians are calling Verisign and other personal ID chips "the mark" of the beast:
Most of the current chips are being implanted in the hand, shoulder, or elbow. However, in the near future people will be accepting even smaller chips in their forehead, hairline, temple, etc.... Does this match the prophecy in Revelation?
Whether or not you believe that RFID chips like Verisign are the actual mark of the beast, the very fact that these exist should be an awakening for all of us. I'll die before I put one of these in my skin. What about you?
Don't forget to read your Bible (specifically Revelations) to learn more about the warnings God has given us about taking "the mark."
