Have you ever wondered how the mandate to worship the image will be enforced worldwide?

I think CBS might be giving us a clue this fall.

I will be watching that program with interest to see what direction it takes.

It's pretty bad when people base their eschatology on movies.

You totally missed the point.  Its about how a specific use of technology could align with prophecy.

Your potshots need some work.  Or better yet, just refrain.

Tesla Inc founder and Chief Executive Elon Musk on mission to link human brains with computers in four years. He said his latest company Neuralink Corp is working to link the human brain with a machine interface by creating micron-sized devices. The technology could take about eight to 10 years to become usable by people with no disability.
 

Is this the beast's mark on the forehead?

Yes, you are right. The first British person to have had one of the chips implanted is Kevin Warwick, a professor of cybernetics, who had his inserted on On August 24, 1998.

I don't want to sound callous or unsympathetic, because the discussion here is certainly focused on a very serious topic. After all, receiving or not receiving the mark is a life and death matter...of eternal consequences. But I must ask the question, is the Bible the foundation of your thinking or not? Because you folk are so busy looking at technology and the things of the world to answer your spiritual questions you are ignoring the fact that regarding any spiritual topic, and that includes eschatology, the Bible interprets itself. 

Yes, clearly there will be financial restraints placed on those who refuse to receive the mark, even ultimately the death sentence...but the financial restraints, nor the death penalty, is the mark itself. The beast to which the mark belongs is a global religious empire.  The mark therefore is that this empire imposes on the world is of a spiritual/religious nature. How do we know this? Because the recipients of the mark are set by the prophecy itself as being in direct contradistinction to God's people who "keep the commandments of God and have the faith of Jesus". Revel. 14:12. Remember, we are speaking of an antichrist spirit here...thus the transgression being commited by the bearers of the mark is contrary to, or in place of, the commandments of God. It also reflects that ones faith is no longer in the Creator God, (Revel 14:6,7) but in a counterfeit who claims this spiritual mark as a token of its own authority above that of the true God, but unlike the true God, has to use deception, coercion, force, and threats to implement it. Typical ages old Satanic principles at play here. But please guys, get back to using the Bible as your source to understanding prophecy. Stop prognosticating on matters that the Bible doesn't reveal, such as a literal barcode or chip that brings down the wrath of God unprecedented in human history. Come on, think about it. God doesnt care if you use technology to manage your finances. But He does care when you keep mans commandments when they directly contradict His own.
