Recently, someone sent me this link:
The article made me think about Revelation 13:
The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.Revelation 13:15-18
Now, I’m not suggesting that the microchip implants featured in this BBC article are the actual mark of the beast, but what I would gather from this article is that the technology to implement the mark of the beast already available.
That said, we are certainly living in the last days.
May the Lord Jesus help us all to live wisely:
So then, be careful how you walk, not as unwise people but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.Ephesians 5:15-16 (NASB)
