As I’m watching those people standing in a lane next to an Automated Teller Machine commonly called as ATM-----which only meant to me that a lot of people
even ordinary nowadays are really using banks than cash (I know it’s very common to other country, but here---kids like me still stick to cash), a sudden thought popped in my head-----(…)
What if one day we woke up and we’re in the brink of Earth’s final crisis-----when using of cash or money is being nullified by law, and a new law is being enforced---where you can’t buy anything even a dropped of water, a piece of medicine---basic, and unable to go to a place where you could see your loved ones…unless you had the mark of the beast, which is now foreseen as a chip e.g. VeriChip, or a form of a tattoo or anything---my point there is that it is the mark of the beast…
As far as I foreseen the world through my narrow imagination-----this is possibly where it would start, right? First, you can’t be beneficiated to an institution or enterprises unless you’re a member, and so, being a member you must have those membership cards, since there’s a lot of institution being built in the society-----they’ll decide to fuse other institution’s membership card in just one card…
And so are credit cards, first it’s just a card alone-----then as years passed there’s gonna be a lot of changes and improvement that will be promoted…
Yes, using of credit cards to have an easy access to your bank account-----is really convenient… and since there’s a lot of different cards e.g. for life insurance, health, auto, and etc. there’s gonna be another changes and improvement that will be promoted pertaining to the PIN number, Social Security number, and etc. Since there’s a lot of numbering to work on, they might want to also put it in one device-----that would easy for us to hold-----like maybe painting it on our body because in that way we could carry it all around anytime anywhere----without bothering if we’d left something at home because everything we need is within us. Clever.
Recently, there’s a lot of news about this particular chip such as RFID. RFID stands for Radio-Frequency IDentification. The acronym refers to small electronic devices that consist of a small chip and an antenna. The RFID device serves the same purpose as a bar code or a magnetic strip on the back of a credit card or ATM card; it provides a unique identifier for that object. And, just as a bar code or magnetic strip must be scanned to get the information.
Actually, RFID technology has been available for more than fifty years. It has only been recently that the ability to manufacture the RFID devices has fallen to the point where they can be used as a "throwaway" inventory or control device.
Searching through the internet, here are the other info of RFID as compared to barcodes:
- Barcode readers require a direct line of sight to the printed barcode; RFID readers do not require a direct line of sight to either active RFID tags or passive RFID tags.
- RFID tags can be read at much greater distances; an RFID reader can pull information from a tag at distances up to 300 feet. The range to read a barcode is much less, typically no more than fifteen feet.
- RFID readers can interrogate, or read, RFID tags much faster; read rates of forty or more tags per second are possible. Reading barcodes is much more time-consuming; due to the fact that a direct line of sight is required, if the items are not properly oriented to the reader it may take seconds to read an individual tag. Barcode readers usually take a half-second or more to successfully complete a read.
- Line of sight requirements also limit the ruggedness of barcodes as well as the reusability of barcodes. (Since line of sight is required for barcodes, the printed barcode must be exposed on the outside of the product, where it is subject to greater wear and tear.) RFID tags are typically more rugged, since the electronic components are better protected in a plastic cover. RFID tags can also be implanted within the product itself, guaranteeing greater ruggedness and reusability.
- Barcodes have no read/write capability; that is, you cannot add to the information written on a printed barcode. RFID tags, however, can be read/write devices; the RFID reader can communicate with the tag, and alter as much of the information as the tag design will allow.
And by the way, RFID devices are intended to be implanted inside a living body, usually in the hand. Relating to the Book of Revelation, did the Bible tells us about this one…if RFIDs not exactly, but the mark of the beast, yes. It actually didn’t tell what kind of mark----a tattoo? a device? whatever but all I know it’ll be put in the hand or forehead…But we’re in the hi-tech generation, anything is possible.
Now, if we take RFID for instance exactly the mark of the beast, and the government will imply a Law that everyone in the whole world to have the chip, without this chip like what the Book of Revelation 13:17 says 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. Imagine that!---no one could ever buy anything though your starving to death/sick to death unless you have the mark!
But what are the consequence if you got the mark?
If you worship the beast and receive the mark of the beast you will receive the complete wrath of God.
The book of Revelation in the Bible gives us this strong warning:
“If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath.” Revelation 14:9,10
If you get the mark of the beast God’s complete wrath will be poured out on you. Horrible!
But here’s a question I would like to leave. Would you risk your soul to live or---wait for the Christ's 2nd coming?
