Mark of the Beast ID Technology

Secular view of the future of microchips in humans

Writer: Jack Van Impe | November 1997 | jvim.org

Writing in a recent Forbes Magazine issue, Ann March, forecasting about the typical American family about the year 2008 said,

"... Both family cars are equipped with global-positioning satellite receivers and locator beacons. Devices pinned to the kids' shirts sound an alarm if they wander too close to the street. Mom and Dad carry cell phones that double as personal locators that can find them anywhere on the planet. The parents, the kids, and the dogs all have microchips under their skin with ID and medical data. There's lively debate as to whether surveillance technology will bring Orwell's 1984, making us all slaves of the state, or constitute a giant step toward human freedom. Either way, the damned thing is practically here. Let the chips fall where they may."

The Forbes article also related that humans are already being tested with microchip implants. A California surgeon has put microchips in more than a dozen women along with their soy-filled breast implants as part of a FDA trial. The rationale for the procedure is that since patients tend to forget important information about their cases, numbers on the microchips will allow medical personnel to later retrieve that information from a database. The surgeon in charge thinks that the implantation of microchips in humans inserted under the skin will become common. (Revelation 13:16-18Bible quote(verse 16) 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:

(verse 17) 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.

(verse 18) 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

Computer Chips for the Brain

An article in the Washington Post said,

"If you've ever wished for a memory upgrade in your head like the ones you can buy for your computer, you'll be happy to hear that researchers have made a computer chip that interfaces directly with brain cells."

Scientists at the California Institute of Technology have created microchips with nerve-nourishing substances, placed neurons on them from embryonic rat brains and allowed them to grow. The researchers said that eventually such chips could be used to enhance various brain cells.
