The Mark Of The Beast - Part IV

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 finish 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 IV.”

1. Human Implants

Many are not aware that in 2004, the FDA approved human implants containing microchips from VeriChip (VeriChip is now called PositiveID). In an article titled “FDA Approves Computer Chip For Humans”(Note 1) it states

“Medical milestone or privacy invasion? A tiny computer chip approved Wednesday for implantation in a patient’s arm can speed vital information about a patient’s medical history to doctors and hospitals. But critics warn that it could open new ways to imperil the confidentiality of medical records. The Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that Applied Digital Solutions of Delray Beach, Fla., could market the VeriChip, an implantable computer chip about the size of a grain of rice, for medical purposes. With the pinch of a syringe, the microchip is inserted under the skin in a procedure that takes less than 20 minutes and leaves no stitches. Silently and invisibly, the dormant chip stores a code that releases patient-specific information when a scanner passes over it. Think UPC code. The identifier, emblazoned on a food item, brings up its name and price on the cashier’s screen. . . .Ultimately, the company hopes patients who suffer from such ailments as diabetes and Alzheimer’s or who undergo complex treatments, like chemotherapy, would have chips implanted. If the procedure proves as popular for use in humans as in pets, that could mean up to 1 million chips implanted in people. So far, just 1,000 people across the globe have had the devices implanted, very few of them in the United States. The company’s chief executive officer, Scott R. Silverman, is one of a half dozen executives who had chips implanted. Silverman said chips implanted for medical uses could also be used for security purposes, like tracking employee movement through nuclear power plants. Such security uses are rare in the United States. Meanwhile, the chip has been used for pure whimsy: Club hoppers in Barcelona, Spain, now use the microchip to enter a VIP area and, through links to a different database, speed payment much like a smartcard.”

We are seeing smart technology being used in three different areas: security, personal identification/safety and medical conditions.

A) Security

In an article titled “Where’s Jimmy? Just Google His Bar Code”(Note 2) it states

“Scientists tag animals to monitor their behavior and keep track of endangered species. Now some futurists are asking whether all of mankind should be tagged too. Looking for a loved one? Just Google his microchip. The chips, called radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, emit a simple radio signal akin to a bar code, anywhere, anytime. Futurists say they can be easily implanted under the skin on a person’s arm. Already, the government of Mexico has surgically implanted the chips, the size of a grain of rice, in the upper arms of staff at the attorney general’s office in Mexico City. The chips contain codes that, when read by scanners, allow access to a secure building, and prevent trespassing by drug lords. In research published in the International Journal of Innovation and Sustainable Development, Taiwanese researchers postulate that the tags could help save lives in the aftermath of a major earthquake. ‘Office workers would have their identity badges embedded in their RFID tags, while visitors would be given temporary RFID tags when they enter the lobby,’ they suggest. Similarly, identity tags for hospital staff and patients could embed RFID technology. ‘Our world is becoming instrumented,’ IBM’s chairman and CEO, Samuel J. Palmisano said at an industry conference last week. ‘Today, there are nearly a billion transistors per human, each one costing one ten-millionth of a cent. There are 30 billion radio RFID tags produced globally.’ Having one in every person could relieve anxiety for parents and help save lives, or work on a more mundane level by unlocking doors with the wave of a hand or starting a parked car -- that's how tech enthusiast Amal Graafstra (his hands are pictured above) uses his. But this secure, ‘instrumented’ future is frightening for many civil liberties advocates. Even adding an RFID chip to a driver’s license or state ID card raises objections from concerned voices.”

(In the article quoted above, the picture of Amal Graafstra shows a microchip in each of his hands).

B) Personal Identification/Safety

The second reason that is being used to justify human implants is personal identification/safety. In an article titled “With Kidnappings On The Rise, Mexicans Turn To Tracking Chips”(Note 3) it states

“QUERÉTARO, Mexico — Of all the strange circumstances surrounding the violent abduction last year of Diego Fernandez de Cevallos, the Mexican power broker and former presidential candidate known here as "Boss Diego," perhaps nothing was weirder than the mysterious tracking chip the kidnappers allegedly cut from his body. Lurid Mexican media accounts reported that an armed gang invaded Fernandez' home, sliced open his arm with a pair of scissors and extracted a satellite-enabled tracking device. Fernandez was freed seven months later with little explanation, but the gruesome details of his crude surgery have not dissuaded thousands of worried Mexicans from seeking out similar satellite and radio-frequency tracking products — including scientifically dubious chip implants — as abductions in the country soar. According to a recent Mexican congressional report, kidnappings have jumped 317 percent in the past five years. Under-the-skin devices such as the one allegedly carved out of Boss Diego are selling here for thousands of dollars on the promise that they can help rescuers track down kidnapping victims. Xega, the Mexican company that sells the chips and performs the implants, says its sales have increased 40 percent in the past two years. For $2,000 upfront and annual fees of $2,000, the company provides clients with a subdermal radio-frequency identification chip (RFID), essentially a small antenna in a tiny glass tube. The chip, inserted into the fatty tissue of the arm between the shoulder and elbow, is less than half an inch long and about as wide as a strand of boiled spaghetti. The chip relays a signal to an external GPS unit the size of a cellphone, Kuri said, but if the owner is stripped of the GPS device in the event of an abduction, Xega can still track down its clients by sending radio signals to the implant. It says it has helped rescue 178 clients in the past decade. But RFID researchers and engineers in the United States call it a sham. Any device that could communicate with satellites or even the local cellular network would need a battery and sizable antenna, like a cellphone, they say. The development of an RFID human implant that could work as a tracking device remains far off, said Justin Patton, managing director of the University of Arkansas RFID Research Center, which specializes in product and merchandise tracking for retail companies such as Wal-Mart. ‘There's no way in the world something that size can communicate with a satellite,’ Patton said. Water is a major barrier for radio frequency, he added, and because the human body is mostly made up of water, it would dull the signal, as would metal, concrete and other solid materials.”

We are seeing from this articles that the supplier is lying about the chip and what it can do for the clients in order to deceive them into receiving the chip in their body. Those who receive these chip implants are eternally damned. In Revelation 14:9-11 it says “9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

C) Medical Conditions

We are seeing a huge push to use human implants in the medical field, in particular people with diabetes. In an article titled “PositiveID Corporation Files Patent for Glucose-Sensing System to be Used in Its GlucoChip Microchip for Patients With Diabetes”(Note 4) it states

“PositiveID Corporation , a developer of medical technologies for diabetes management, clinical diagnostics and bio-threat detection, announced today it has filed a patent with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for its recently completed stable and reproducible, closed-cycle continuous glucose-sensing system that is the mission-critical component of its GlucoChip(TM) glucose-sensing microchip for patients with diabetes. PositiveID now has five patents and patents pending surrounding the development of GlucoChip. Last week, the Company, in conjunction with its development partner RECEPTORS LLC (‘Receptors’), announced it had completed Phase II of the GlucoChip development program, with the creation and demonstration of a continuous glucose-sensing system that consistently functions in the human blood fractions that are relevant to glucose analysis in the human body. PositiveID and Receptors published results from their laboratory testing in a white paper titled, ‘Development of the Sensing System for an Implantable Glucose Sensor,’ available at http://www.positiveidcorp.com/files/ImplantableGlucoseSensorWhitePaper.pdf . PositiveID has also filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office covering a passive radio frequency ("RF") powered electromechanical sensor for the continuous detection of glucose levels in a patient. This new system integrates RF technology, such as that described in PositiveID's previously issued Patent No. 7,125,382 entitled ‘Embedded Bio-Sensor System.’ This patent and patent application utilize RF identification technology and include a remote transponder in wireless communication with an implantable passively-powered on-chip transponder. One or more micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) devices inside the sensor register physical changes reflecting glucose levels in vivo, which are communicated via integrated electronics to an external reader. Robert E. Carlson, Ph.D., President and Chief Scientific Officer of Receptors, said, ‘We continue to make considerable progress in the development of GlucoChip. The filing of this latest patent covering the glucose-sensing system represents our successful development of the core component of GlucoChip(TM), the stable, synthetic chemistry that responds to changing levels of glucose. We are now in an excellent position to initiate integration of the biocompatibility, MEMS signal transduction and RFID communication components into the GlucoChip prototype.’ GlucoChip is based on the Company's FDA cleared microchip for patient identification, the VeriChip, and the Company's Embedded Bio-Sensor System patent. The Company's Embedded Bio-Sensor System patent covers a bio-sensor system that utilizes radio frequency identification technology and includes a remote transponder in wireless communication with an implantable passively-powered on-chip transponder. PositiveID also has an exclusive license, for use in the GlucoChip application, to Receptors' Patent No. 7,504,364 titled ‘Methods of Making Arrays and Artificial Receptors’ and Patent No. 7,469,076 ‘Sensors Employing Combinatorial Artificial Receptors.’”


In another article titled “Global Diabetes Epidemic Balloons to 350 million”(Note 5) it states

“The number of adults with diabetes worldwide has more than doubled since 1980 to 347 million, a far larger number than previously thought and one that suggests costs of treating the disease will also balloon. In a study published in the The Lancet journal, an international team of researchers working with The World Health Organization found that rates of diabetes have either risen or at best remained the same in virtually all parts of the world in the past 30 years. The estimated number of diabetics is markedly higher than a previous projections that put the number at 285 million worldwide. This study found that of the 347 million people with diabetes, 138 million live in China and India and another 36 million in the United States and Russia. The most common type of diabetes, Type 2, is strongly associated with obesity and a sedentary lifestyle.”


In closing, we are seeing satan use fear (of being kidnapped), security concerns (need for access to buildings) and health conditions (diabetes) to bring many people into receiving the mark of the beast. 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.”
