I wanted to pose a hypothetical scenario to the forum and hopefully elicit a little interesting discussion.  Or nobody responds and it falls by the wayside, into the pit of lonely ignored posts 😁.

Here goes:

If identity theft was even more rampant than today and you had serious concerns about protecting your bank account, and your ability to shop for food, and the presented solution was a tiny microchip in your right hand, would you take it? (Even need to be chipped to access cash)

If your job currently requires access cards to move to certain areas of your office and the cultural trend became that the best way to secure your work area or log into a work computer was to receive a tiny chip in your right hand would you take it?

Remember at this point, there's been no breaking news the Antichrist is here or the end times have begun, rather headline after headline about identity theft and security breaches scaring you into ensuring your job and finances are secure.  Do you take it?  Let's say whatever your personal belief is about the Antichrist and the mark of the beast hasn't happened, so you're CONVINCED this chip has nothing to do with the Antichrist and everything to do with your safety and security, do you take it?

Or do you deny it? Do you literally walk away from your job, or do you give up your ability to buy and sell? Food being the most important commodity of course. 

My answer?  No chips for me under ANY circumstances.  I'm willing to walk away from it all, take my family into a forest (with Bible in tow of course), build a shelter, try to grow some vegetables and desalinate water.  Point of fact, that kind of life is much much closer to Jesus anyway.

What would YOU do?  I'd love to hear some responses.

LoL. 

Well, personally it would give me the creeps, so I wouldn't be wild about the idea, that's for sure. But then I never cared for things like vaccinations either. :)

See, I don't believe a microchip will be what the mark of the Beast actually is, so my answer may be different than what others will say. Believing it is actually NOT the mark or anything resembling it, I suppose I would just go with the flow and get a microchip if it were passed as a law. But that's just me. 

Btw, I hope I'm not messing up your thread by saying that, LoL. Just throwing my two cents in.

Run to Israel.

I guess there will be a time, Israel will open its door for Christian Refugees from all over the world to move into it.

Before the chips made compulsory make sure you won't be left behind in the rapture.

Lol, NO.  I'm thankful and grateful you replied 😉.  There's no right or wrong "answer" and yours was great!  I'm too skeptical to go with the flow if this micro chipping seeps into worldly culture.  

 

I know there's as many varying beliefs on end times as their is flavors of ice cream at Baskin Robbins.  I'm actually hoping to read some varied ideas on this concept, thanks again!

LoL. Let's hope it doesn't. I'd feel like someone's pet, like a dog wearing one of those electric zappers or something.

Wait, it won't let me post my GIF. Darn! Where's the fun in that!  :)

This is fantastic and something I never considered given the distance involved. Thanks!

I would never take a Chip into my body..  And as the Bible says about Safety and Security..  1 Thessalonians 5: KJV 2 "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. {3} For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."

I would walk away.. My eternal life is far more important then my flesh life on this planet..

I hope to not be here either, but as an ugly sinner, I never quite feel "worthy" enough.

      Hi everyone, I found this site while googling for forums regarding the Mark of the Beast and how it could possibly relate to A.I., DNA splicing, etc.- found a few on here that seemed quite interesting  I'm married to a really awesome guy who I always seem to have fun with, kids are grown up now, I've always been interested in biblical prophecy and find myself with more time to indulge my passion for it, lol~ I'm originally from California, but living here in the midwest (the cold, snowy midwest, haha) for the last decade. I look forward to reading more of the posts on here, and eventually (hopefully!) contributing some of my own, as well~  I forgot to add that I really do like pizza...a lot. Hence the name, lol~

      A Cashless Economy
          Allow me to propose a hypothetical scenario:  One day, you are notified by your bank that a new technology is being instituted to make your lifestyle simpler, more secure, and more efficient. You (and everyone else in town) are told to come down to the bank at your earliest convenience to turn in any cash, credit cards, etc. and instead receive an account number to be embedded in your forehead or right hand. 
           When it is your turn, you are asked to step up to receive this account number.  Just then, you say “Well now wait a minute!  I thought that when this time came, I would have to make a literal, conscious decision to reject Jesus Christ as my Savior!”  The man administering this process says to you, “Mr. Jones, where in the world did you get that idea.  We’re not asking you to renounce or give up anything.  We don’t care what religious preference you have, or if you have any at all.  What we are asking is just a simple procedure of receiving this account chip so that your life can be more convenient, theft-proof, counterfeit proof.  It is a foolproof system to put an end to drug dealers, counterfeiters, thieves and the like.”
         So you take another look at what you thought would be the scenario.  It is a process to make life more convenient, a cashless society that does away with counterfeiting.  It is a means of making transactions easier, where the store owner simply totals up the purchase and scans your account number, subtracts it from your credit balance, etc.   On the surface, you are given a choice whether to take this mark or not.  It is a simple economic measure - a simple process that just takes a moment.  But in reality, you really have no choice at all, because the fact is that if you do not take it, you will not be part of the cashless economic system.  You will not be able to buy a loaf of bread, buy gas at the pump, pay your monthly mortgage, car, or any other loan payment.  
      Economical or Ecumenical?
         What seems to be a convenient choice with a simple economic measure on the surface is really total allegiance to the “system” in the truest sense of the word.  What we thought was going to be an act of  “Denying Christ” is just exactly that, only it is taking place through a “back door” economic, convenient act.  Although it is an economic decision on the surface, it is a RELIGIOUS decision in reality.  We are taking the final last step, not only of total allegiance to a system that is the culmination of Genesis 3, but also a blatant act of shaking our fist at God, essentially saying to Him “We don’t need You anymore.  We now have anything we want, any time we want, anywhere we want.  We now can have it all, and no longer have to lean You for anything!” (Read Prov. 3:4,5)
         The anti-christ is not going to force you to “give up” your faith in your religion or God (at least not at first). He will allow you to continue in your form of religion. In fact, he will welcome all religious faiths to come together in world unity!   You will be permitted to continue in your ‘’form of godliness” (but denying the power thereof). 
      Spiritual Significance
         We are aware of the fact that we as believers in Jesus Christ become identified with Him in baptism.  The symbolism of death, burial and resurrection are portrayed in the act of Baptism.  In the same way, the children of Israel were “identified” in their trust in God to deliver them from Egypt:  “And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;” 1Cor 10:2".  The Israelites crossed the Red Sea on dry land.  They were not “baptized” by water - they were “baptized” by identification.  The identification process is more than a system to “identify” us in a database - it is a choice we make to make a statement who we are going to “identify” ourselves with.
         One day I bought something at a retail store.  As the cashier wiped the product over the scanner, I mentioned to her about the circular  silhouette picture of a hand in the center of the gray pad.  “Do you know that’s predicted in the book of Revelation?”  She apparently knew what I was talking about, but replied that what is in Revelation is figurative, or “spiritual”.  She didn’t seem to think it was of any major concern.  The fact is, she was right - it IS spiritual.  What we find in Revelation about “taking the mark” talks about a “spiritual” conditioning process that demonstrates a literal principle.  The masses of humanity are being conditioned to accepting a mentality of subscribing to a system of putting their trust in “mammon” or “money”.  The sad part is that they are “buying” it.  
         All the time the point that the little circular logo on the pad at checkouts is “figurative”, the truth of the whole scenario goes right over their heads. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” Hosea 4:6. 
          Incidentally, the next time you visit a major retail outlet that have these circular gray pads with the logo I refer to above, take a close look at the way the hand is positioned on the logo.  It is a silhouette of an outstretched hand with the thumb facing right.  At first glance, it would appear to be the LEFT hand.  So you do a double take.  “Why is it illustrating the left hand, when Rev. 13:16-18 is speaking of the RIGHT hand?”
         But then it dawns on you (at least it did me), that the silhouette is a picture of the hand with the palm facing UP.  When people make purchases and they are to have their account number scanned, it WILL be on the back of their RIGHT hand.  Whoever designed the silhouette knew exactly what they were doing.  Upon reading this, you may say “Well, we have nothing to worry about if they inject these computer chips in our forearm.  It doesn’t fulfill what is predicted in Revelation (yet).  To that I say, all you are doing is stalling for time and grasping for straws.  You are like the guy who takes a ride down the Bright Trail of the Grand Canyon on a Jackass that wants to walk four inches from the outside edge.  “Let’s see how close we can get before falling off” you say.  When are we going to wake up and realize what is going on right under our noses.

      Hi all. Here's another video produced by some friends of mine. It's 6 minutes, so not too long. There is a rather intimate link between prophecy and the teachings of Jesus. After all, the angel from Revelation 10 tells us that the spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus. The video examines the relationship between Jesus' comments, in particular, about serving two masters and the Mark of the Beast, both of which heavily revolve around our relationship to money.

      I look forward to hearing what others think. Lets get some good discussion going about the Mark of the Beast and personal motivations!
