At this very moment, world events are running so fast that no one can keep up with them. The stock market around the world is collapsing. Now we are being inundated with very confusing explanations about the mark of the beast. The Bible tells us:
The Antichrist will compel all both small and great, both the rich and the poor, both free and slave, to be marked with an inscription [stamped] on their right hands or on their foreheads, So that no one will have power to buy or sell unless he bears the stamp (mark, inscription), [that is] the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is [room for] discernment [a call for the wisdom of interpretation]. Let anyone who has intelligence (penetration and insight enough) calculate the number of the beast, for it is a human number [the number of a certain man]; his number is 666. (Revelation 13:16-18 AMP)
Without this mark there will be no way to obtain food or transportation or even make a living. It will be practically impossible to survive. He will come to power at a time of international economic crisis. He will cause craft and deceit to prosper. He will control the citizens using the available technology and he will be watching every move.
Today Bio-chip implants, each the size of a grain of rice, can be tucked under a person’s skin to monitor his health or his buying and selling transactions. Other similar high-tech identification systems have been developed as well: eye scans, facial scans, palm printing, transponders. The technology is already in place to implement such a surveillance system. Remember most of the political leaders in all the parties believe in government abuse of power to intimidate and track innocent people especially Christians.Will they use a microchip implant or its just speculation?
What is an RFID Microchip Implant?
A human microchip implant is an identifying RFID transponder encased in silicate glass which is about the size of a grain of rice and implanted in the body of a human being. RFID stands for radio frequency identification. It contains a unique ID number that can be linked to information contained in an external database, such as personal identification, medical history, medications, allergies, and contact information. RFID chips are found in lots of things we use every day, including credit cards and passports.
In the next video Perry Stone prophesies about the possible government plan of implanting of microchips into our bodies for identification reasons, similar to the mark of the beast spoken of in the Book of Revelation. Stone says by 2017-2018, it will be mandatory for Americans to have this chip implanted in their bodies.
Katherine Albrecht the founder of Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering also warned us that iWatch, Apple Pay could be sequel to ‘Mark of the Beast here:
Remember no one will be able to get the mark without worshiping the beast. So whether or not this is mark of the beast doesn’t matter to those who know and have placed their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. What matters is; do you know Jesus intimately? Are you blood bought, stamped with the seal of the Holy Spirit and preserved for glory? The overcoming church of Jesus Christ will not be on this planet when this marking takes place.
God’s people have already been marked on their foreheads. We are already sealed, marked, branded and stamped with the seal of the long –promised Holy Spirit as God’s own secured for the day of redemption through Christ from evil and the consequences of sin. (See Ephesians 1:13) The prophet Ezekiel says:
And the Lord said to him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in the midst of it. (Ezekiel 9:4)
In the Book of Revelation, we hear the Lord telling the destroying angels, Harm neither the earth nor the sea nor the trees, until we have sealed the bond servants of our God upon their foreheads. (Revelation 7:3)
Again in Revelation 9:4 the demon powers unleashed in the last days are told not to injure the herbage of the earth nor any green thing nor any tree, but only [to attack] such human beings as do not have the seal (mark) of God on their foreheads.
In Revelation 22:4 the Lord promises us that, “No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads.”
Here is our final lesson. Our hope faith and trust are in the Lord Jesus Christ. He knows exactly what we need and when we need it and we are forever in His care. The prophet Daniel says, “He reveals the deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him!” (Daniel 2:22) God knows that all these dark days ahead will be overcome when we draw close to Him. He assures us that He will never leave us nor forsake us:
Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me? (Hebrews 13:5 AMP)
