The Time of the Mark is Here

I believe most everyone is familiar with the now advanced, yet ever so subtle technology that is being used today to keep your kids located (In Europe particularly), identify felons and convicts, travelers, RFID for numerous patient health care reasons, and so on. It exists today, is being used now, and is being widely accepted as the right thing to do.

Presented as a need which outweighs concerns, it is very smoothly being integrated into our society, and people are buying into it rapidly for its ease of use, and much more.

Consider this first - John told us it would take wisdom -

Revelation 13 -

16He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.
18This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666.

This cannot be "Spiritual" because it denotes a literal mark used for buying and selling (More on this in a moment)

The RFID and similar technology microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, or in some cases round and about the size of a small ibuprofen pill, only flat and thin.

Research proved that the only effective area to implant it are in the forehead or hand.

While they have used under the arm, and a few other places, the "IDEAL" locations are exactly as John described.

People have always wondered and attempted to "calculate" the names, causing disputes in regarding what it meant and how to determine the meaning of "666" and the "mark of the beast".

God brought to life The Revelation of St. John the Divine for a reason - To help us prepare for what lies ahead. To give insight and understanding without fear, so we as "His Chosen" would not "Take The Mark" when the time came.

God knew everything before it happened and has already planned our path through the soon to come Great Tribulation.

He has already determined the final outcome WE WIN!! through Jesus Christ - AMEN!!

During the time of the "Mark of the Beast", God will raise his church (at the rapture, the Catching Away, the Translating of the Restrainer) and pour out his wrath upon the rest of the world.

Over the last two or three decades there has been extensive advancement in technology, just as Daniel said there would be - Another fulfillment of prophecy never before seen as he described.

One in particular is that infamous "Mark of the Beast".

The original purpose of the RFID type chip was to restore mobility to people with severed nerves, then it was discovered that it could be used to modify behaviour. This opened a whole new area of research and development.

Certain World Governments, development companies, and several other foundations quickly realized that there were much more important uses commercially and personally.

These more important uses begin with simple versions already being used world wide to keep track of pets and other animals, as well as children, convicts, certain types of medical patients, travelers, and more as I mentioned earlier.

InfoPet has been endorsed by the ASPCA and has been selected as the global standard for zoos and aquariums by the Captive Breeding Specialist Group of the IUCN. Hundreds of zoos worldwide, as well as government agencies in at least 21 countries are using the trovan system for animal identification purposes.

Bracelet tracks kids by satellite - Two United States companies have unveiled tracking bracelets that can locate a child within 60 seconds of a distress call being sent.

The bracelets transmit a signal that is picked up by the Global Positioning System network of navigational satellites.

The devices are being sold by rival US companies.

It's most important applications they say are positive identification and control.

We can uniquely identify over 34 billion recipients and locate any one of them via satellite to within a few feet of their location.

Testing and development in humans is well advanced in numerous countries.

Several years ago Sweden tested the chip in 6,000 men, and the U.S. in 17,000 babies -neither found any reported side effects (Easing into the public, seemingly very helpful, useful and safe)

The chips usually contains a tiny lithium battery with charging circuits activated by skin temp changes.

Therefore, it must be placed in a position where temperature changes occur most rapidly.

More than 1.5 million dollars was spent finding out that the two places in the body that the temperature changes the most rapidly are in the forehead - Preferred, and the back of the hand.

Advanced versions of these chips contain the same information as the SmartCards.

They can store huge amounts of personal data like your photo, your identity, any criminal record and your purchasing history -(Most important for tracking Buying and Selling)

It also has the ability to be used in the same way as any credit, debit or EFTPOS card, but with the added ability that it can be filled up with a cash value that can be used whenever you do shopping. Touted as the wave of the future and the best thing to come along.

Plans are in place to make acceptance of the chip natural, logical and beneficial to the general public as is already being done at am alarming rate.

A beast that wants to appear as harmless and desirable in order to obtain the greatest degree of acceptance.

Right now it is still voluntary just like credit cards and a great proportion of the population will receive them very willingly

The benefits of using the "Voluntary" ID Chips -

Never fear losing your baby or any other relative again.

Never lose your money or credit card again.

No more credit card fraud because nobody can steal your chip or even use your chip number (I wonder what the number of the AntiChrist's Chip will be) separately from your chip.

No need to carry money just charge up your hand with a cash value that can be used in public transport and other places that don't have a phone link with banks - This is happening now in certain electronic maker corporate structures.

No need to carry a driver's license or passport because all the information can be contained in the chip.

It is rapidly becoming widespread and accepted.

We can expect to see alternate things like cash and credit cards slowly disappear until the chip becomes the only legal way to buy or sell (Sounds like Revelation to me)

Using cash, checks and credit cards will disappear - Banks will adjust their fees on these services to eliminate them for the "better" chip method -

People will not be able to use government services or receive government benefits without the chip to identify themselves.

People will not be able to get employment without the chip to identify themselves.

The governments will impose the highest tax rates to anyone not onboard with the ID chip.

You won't be able to get paid or use your $$$, bank or pay bills without the chip.

Hand readers will be everywhere, including the average home to allow internet buying and selling.

Passports are already doing it, and it is only a matter of time before driver's licenses will be completely replaced by the chip

International travel is already doing this and driving will eventually be limited to those who have the chip.

The ability to buy or sell ANYTHING without the chip will gradually diminish and eventually disappear altogether.

Laws are already in place, and others are on the way, in preparation for the chip.

Eventually, it will become law for everyone to have the chip.

Christians will refuse to accept it, creating a faster paced requirement and making it become law much faster.

The President of the United States already has the power to enforce the use of the chip - (Section 100 of the Emigration and Control Act of 1996.)

There are bills before the U.S. congress right now that will allow them to inject a microchip in your baby at the time of birth for identification purposes.

The book of Revelation was written in Greek, so it is important to note that any interpretation will need to consider the Greek version of the text in order to get the clearest possible understanding.

As some have discussed already -

mark charagma

(khar'-ag-mah) A scratch or etching ie. a stamp (as a badge of servitude). It comes from charasso (which means to sharpen to a point.) {A microchip is an etching in a piece of silicon.}

name onoma

(on'-om-ah) A "name" (literally or figuratively) [authority, character] eg. Having the authority of someone's name.

count psephizo
(psay-fid'-zo) To use pebbles in enumeration, ie. (in general) to compute or count. {Silicon chips are small pebbles of sand.)

man's anthropos
(anth'-ro-pos) Man-faced, ie. a human being particularly a certain individual.

666 chi xi stigma
(khee xee stig'-ma) This can be interpreted as either a number (666) or as text:
"chi" means 600;
"xi" means 60.
"stigma" means 6, but also means a mark incised or punched (for recognition of ownership). It comes from stizo (to "stick", ie. prick).

Again - In Context -
{16} He [the second beast] caused everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive an etching of servitude (a chip made with a sharp point) in their right hand, or in their foreheads; {17} so that no one could buy or sell unless they had the etching of servitude, or the authority of the beast, or the number of his authority. {18} Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast, for it is an individual's [identification] number. His number is incised with a pricking action.

"Etching" may refer to the incision into the skin, but more likely it refers to the chip itself, because that is exactly how microchips are made - by etching a piece of silicon with a sharp or pointed electron beam.

That some will be able to operate using "the authority of the beast" or with "the number of his authority" suggests that a select few, will have the authority to buy and sell etc without the chip being implanted in their hand or forehead.

If "the number of his authority" is interpreted as "the number of his name", then it could mean that you would be able to use your identification number manually (for phone or internet purchases) but this is inconsistent with the purpose of the chip.

In Rev 16:2 it says there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men who had the mark of the beast -

If the lithium in the chip escapes into the body, that's what'll happen!

Although there are numerous ways that the secular world has used the number 666 the interpretation of chi xi stigma as a number (666) is irrelevant.

The way to read it is, "Your identification number, incised or pricked into the skin."

Look at how closely the chip fits the description in Scripture. We are indeed very close to the time of the the Great Tribulation - Which means the Rapture IS INDEED VERY SOON!

The Bible says many Christians will give up their faith over the issue of whether or not to receive the mark - Again, another reason to believe it is tangible and not Spiritual.

They will do this because resisting will be too hard

The Word of God says this

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 ascends up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name - Rev 14:9-11

The time of the mark is here - We are better prepared because we trust and believe in God's Word -

The world will hate you for standing firm in your Christian faith. We must hold fast to the reward that God has for those who hold on to their faith and do not give in.

Christ IS coming to Rapture the Church Very Soon I believe!! AMEN!!
