The Mark Of The Beast - Part III

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: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. 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

In this issue of The Prophetic Messenger, we will continue looking at the technology that is being used to bring in the mark of the beast in a message titled “The Mark Of The Beast- Part III.”

1. Train Up A Child

To prepare a society to accept being tracked, you start with the children. We will share the following articles being used to get our children to accept this new technology as normal. In an article titled “Biometric ID Check On Scots Schoolchildren As Young As Four”(Note 1)

“DOZENS of Scottish schools have introduced ‘intrusive’ biometric systems, such as fingerprinting, to identify pupils as young as four. New figures show 68 schools are now using  technology to manage meals, control library books and even allow access to toilets. Almost two-thirds are primaries, where fingerprinting and palm recognition can be used to identify young children. And another 10 schools in Midlothian have the capability for biometric ID but are not yet using it. Yesterday, critics said the extent which the technology was being used in Scotland’s schools was ‘worrying’. Liberal Democrat justice spokesman Robert Brown, who uncovered the figures through Freedom of Information legislation, said: “If the vast majority of Scotland’s schools can let children move round the premises and pay for their lunch without biometric identification, it is difficult to see why it is necessary for these 68 schools. Public bodies have shown in the past that they are not always to be trusted with sensitive personal data. ‘Do we really want this sort of intrusive information taken from young children?’ Mr Brown said the use of technology in classrooms also risked ID cards being introduced through the “backdoor”. He added: “The data seems to be used for trivial matters, such as access to libraries and paying for meals.” Angus Council has the greatest number of schools using the technology, with biometric ID systems in use for cashless catering in four primary and eight secondary schools. In one West Lothian secondary school there is a ‘hand pad system’ in place for primary school pupils housed there temporarily to gain use of the toilets. Records of fingerprints are not kept, but if palm recognition is used an image can be encrypted and stored. Michael Parker, of anti-identity card campaigners NO2ID, said: “It is quite unreasonable to construct a system whereby children of a very young age are being regularly indoctrinated into the idea that they must constantly prove who they are.”


In another article titled “California Students Get Tracking Devices”(Note 2) it states:

“California officials are outfitting preschoolers in Contra Costa County with tracking devices they say will save staff time and money. The system was introduced Tuesday. When at the school, students will wear a jersey that has a small radio frequency tag. The tag will send signals to sensors that help track children's whereabouts, attendance and even whether they've eaten or not. School officials say it will free up teachers and administrators who previously had to note on paper files when a child was absent or had eaten. Sung Kim of the county's employment and human services department said the system could save thousands of hours of staff time and pay for itself within a year.”


In another article titled “Technology Tracks Schoolbus Kids”(Note 3) it states:

“In a bid to set parents' nerves at ease, a southwest suburban school district has become one of the first in the state to begin tracking students riding buses to and from school each day with Global Positioning System and Radio Frequency Identification technology. Palos Heights School District 128 had previously been using ZPass, a GPS technology provided by Seattle-based Zonar Systems, to track the buses.  But now the district is outfitting students' backpacks with a luggage tag-sized unit that logs when the student steps on and off the bus. ‘A little piece of mind helps you get through the day,’ said Ann O'Brien, a mother of four children in Palos Heights School District 128. "They can locate kid and bus in seconds." Palos School Superintendent Kathleen Casey said the system helps alleviate parents' concerns. ‘We can track the bus with the GPS, alleviate a parent's fear if they got on or off bus, look up their ID number and find out what bus and what time boarded or if still on or exited,’ she said.”


From these articles and from articles quoted in past newsletters we are seeing the conditioning of children as young as 4 years old to accept these technologies as normal, so when the mark of the beast becomes mandatory for every person they will already be mentally conditioned to receive it. In Revelation 13:16-18 it says “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: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. 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.” 

2. Smart Technology Is Being Used To Track Our Food Supply

We are seeing a huge push to use smart technology for animals, food and farming. A quote from a recent book titled “RFID For Animals, Food and Farming 2011-2021”(Note 4) states

“The RFID business has grown throughout the global financial meltdown and it is a business of well over $5 billion today. Only a few percent of that is for animals, food and farming. However, the RFID market will triple in the next ten years, not least because a great variety of needs and government regulation is driving adoption in animals, food and farming. Indeed, the sector will grow nine fold. This unique report forecasts the markets in these sectors. It brings alive the activity with a host of new case studies. Already, the animals, food and farming part of this burgeoning market extends from tagging sturgeon in Canada, reindeer in Lapland, pandas in China, kangaroo meat in Australia and, by law, dogs in New Zealand to, started in 2010, sheep and goats in Europe. In 2012, Europe and possibly New Zealand will be tagging cattle by law. The reasons for the now rapid adoption of RFID in this sector embrace disease control, cost control, safety, crime prevention and improving customer service. Both the forward and reverse supply chains are involved. Planned legislation underpins future growth in these markets, as does the probability of more bioterrorism and accidental debasement of food but there are also the needs of racing pigeon enthusiasts in Germany and those selling premium food subject to counterfeiting. Swine flu, avian flu and hoof and mouth disease will not go away. This is the only comprehensive, up to date report on this new backbone of the RFID business and it comes with one hour of free consultancy and access to the frequently updated RFID Knowledgeable of over 4000 projects in 111 countries. This package is designed to assist suppliers, users, legislators, researchers, investors and all others in the value chain. It gives a balanced view of successes and failures and which technologies and applications are most promising for the future and why. The activities of a large number of suppliers and users are described from countries all over the world, indeed in all the continents of the world. The forecasts for 2010-2020 cover numbers of tags, unit value and total market value, each for the categories livestock, food, pets, research & conservation, farming, each of these application areas being thoroughly analyzed in separate chapters.”

From this quote we can see that RFID technology has grown to over $5 billion industry, and also it shows its has over 4000 projects in 111 countries.

In another article titled “Wisconsin Posts 1 Millionth RFID”(Note 5) it states:

“On February 28, 2011, the Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium recorded the state's millionth Radio Frequency Identification Number, a milestone in Wisconsin animal identification. RFID, also known as electronic ID, is an ear tag that has a unique number which can be read both visibly and electronically. ‘Wisconsin farmers have really stepped up to the plate when it comes to using RFID,’ said Ben Brancel, Secretary of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. ‘Using RFID improves traceability and opens doors to international markets.’ RFID use has grown considerably over the past few years. In March 2008 there were 138,260 RFID numbers recorded. Just a year later in March 2009 that number increased to 405,134, and today there are over one million RFID numbers being used amongst various species across the state. As consumers become more source conscious of their food and the agricultural industry presses for more traceability due to residue and disease issues, use of RFID is expected to grow. Currently, Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium (WLIC) estimates show that sixteen percent of the milking dairy herd in Wisconsin is identified by RFID.”


In another article titled “RFID Tracks Leafy Greens in Arizona” (Note 6) it states

“Researchers at the University of Arizona's School of Plant Sciences are preparing to commercialize a system that employs radio frequency identification and GPS technologies to enable farmers to determine the fertility of lettuce fields, while also allowing retailers to trace lettuce back through the supply chain. The system includes RFID- and GPS-enabled harvest-aid machines that are now being used to track not only when and where lettuce was picked, and but also when it was moved into cold storage. Several years ago, Kurt Nolte, a plant sciences professor and researcher at the university, began seeking a technological solution that would offer farmers a better view into the productivity of their fields, as well as different sections of the same field. For example, some areas of a field may yield considerably more lettuce than others, based on water or soil conditions.”


In closing, as we see animals, food and farming using smart technology, we are moving closer to the fulfillment of the prophecy in Revelation 13:17 which 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. ”
