For years, many Bible students have sought after answers to the identity of the “mark of the Beast.” The first mention of a mark upon a man was Cain, who had murdered his brother Abel. The question is, “In what form was the mark?” Was the mark a physical mark, such as something like a tattoo? Or, was it a spiritual mark that conveyed to others that he was an outcast of God? In Genesis 4:15, Scripture states that a “mark” was placed upon him, not in him.
However, in the case of the “mark of the Beast” the mark is said to be placed inside the unbeliever: “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” (Rev. 13:16). Could the tiny microchip meet the qualifications of the “mark”? The process of inserting a tiny chip into the right hand of individuals for identification has already begun.
It is well known that Biohax International of Sweden has implanted over 4,000 employees with microchips in their right hands. The process began over five years ago by a firm established by a former professional body piercer. Workers use the chip for train tickets, gym memberships, food, soft drinks, and entrance into locked doors at work. This makes punching a timeclock obsolete. Workers also use these to store their emergency contact information. The convenience it provides is catching on in European and American businesses and personal lives.
In July 2017, in River Falls, Wisconsin, fifty employees of Three Square Market voluntarily received the microchip implants (www.theatlantic.com).
In Florida, a wife had her family implanted to help with her husband’s health monitoring. There are many good reasons to get an implant, such as a person can be found who has lost his way because of dementia or other mental illnesses. A company that implants reports that company scientists are already working on a global positioning system (www.cbs.com).
However, just how common is the use of implantable microchips? According to www.marketwatch.com, there are perhaps many companies or individuals that are already voluntarily having themselves implanted. In some cases, companies may be requiring their employees to be chipped. To guard against forced chipping, Indiana passed a bill in the State House of Representatives unanimously making it illegal to force employees to receive the chip in order to keep their job. “In some cases, it’s tech-savvy workers who bring the chips to their bosses’ attention,” said Amal Graafstra, CEO of Dangerous Things, a Seattle, Washingtom-based implantable chip manufacturer and distributor, and VivoKey Technologies, a chip manufacturer.
The above noted source also stated, “Those workers—typically on the IT side of a business—get an implant for personal use. The microchip is typically inserted between the thumb and index finger. The chips Graafstra’s company sells start around $50, plus an optional $50 for insertion with an affiliated doctor or piercing expert.”
Is the introduction of human microchipping a precursor to the “mark of the Beast,” or just another step forward in future conditioning of people in order to better control them during the Tribulation period, or is it a giant conspiracy to cover-up what is really happening behind the scenes? The most notable conspiracy involves billionaire Bill Gates. It has been reported that he is donating billions of dollars to WHO to immunize the world against COVID-19. And, the vaccine is to contain a chip that will allow everyone to unknowingly be able to be controlled in the future. The part about chipping has not been proven one way or the other (www.usatoday).
However, the theory could have some merit. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation helps to fund a study in a public health initiative done at MIT. USA Today notes, “The team had developed an ‘approach to encode medical history on a patient’ by including a small amount of dye with a vaccine. The dye, which would be invisible to the naked eye but observable through a specialized cell phone app using infrared light, would keep a record of a child’s vaccines. The technique may be especially useful in developing countries, where record keeping is often more difficult.” Was the dye meant to be a microchip?
There is always a certain amount of truth in every conspiracy. In this case we are looking for a possible clue as to what the mark will be and how it will be distributed. If the microchip is the answer, then Satan’s helpers will need to get busy and start chipping everyone who will enter into the Tribulation period. The question is, “How will they know who to chip?” Prior to the Tribulation period the chip cannot be the “mark” because this will invariably include some Christians who are clueless as to what is happening. Will these be accepting the “mark” and not be removed at the Rapture? Will babies who are chipped be included in this group? The Rapture will separate the wheat from the tares. Those during the Tribulation who refuse the “mark” will be beheaded. Therefore, chipping could be a control device for the Antichrist. There will be nothing that will keep a born-again believer in Jesus Christ as Savior from being removed at the Rapture. “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”(Romans 8:38–39).
What’s Happening To Our Children
One of the greatest crimes being carried out today is sex trafficking. “Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide—including right here in the United States. It can happen in any community and victims can be any age, race, gender, or nationality. Traffickers might use violence, manipulation, or false promises of well-paying jobs or romantic relationships to lure victims into trafficking situations” (www.dhs.gov).
Every day on the news we hear of children—both boys and girls—who have been reported missing. Many are never found and many are found dead. Perhaps your family has been affected by this heinous crime and grievous sin. There are many stories being circulated by different groups about different important celebrities and political figures which cannot be proven because of their protected status.
However, there was one celebrity who could not be suppressed: Jeffrey Epstein. With his unmasking, publicity showed just how many Hollywood giants and high-profile politicians are involved in the industry of sex trafficking. It has been rumored that Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey, the Gates, and the Clintons are under house arrest. While the rumors are not true, this does not necessarily exempt them from guilt. This is a crime by godless individuals and should be punished as such. In Matthew 18:6, Jesus said: “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 460,000 children are reported missing in the United States each year. This is only a fraction of children who go missing here and abroad. In many countries, missing children are not even reported and no statistics are kept. Canada is a far second to the United States with 45,288 children reported missing each year (www.globalmissingkids.org).
Where are these children? Frantic parents place everything on hold until they are found, or exhaust themselves and others in search of them. Many have gone into slavery of various kinds, including sex slavery. Many have been shipped off to brothels and labor farms in foreign countries, never to be heard from again.
Having been to many Muslim countries in the Middle East, I was reminded that blonde-haired girls are in high demand for sex slaves and should be guarded at all times and not be allowed to wander alone. All abductions, including those in the United States, can take only seconds but can last a lifetime for the victim and the family as well.
When I was a kid in the 1940s, abductions were seldom heard of. We were reared in a different world than exists today. Our most precious possessions are our children, and forces are at work to destroy them and the homes they came from. Stealing a child must carry the harshest penalty to curb it from happening, including the death penalty. Our children are God’s gift and our next generation of leaders and must be protected.
“Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they … shall speak with the enemies in the gate” (Psalm 127:3–5).
