The VeriChip, the size of a grain of rice, is inserted under the skin with a needle in a procedure that takes less than 20 minutes.
Doctors implanted a radio ID tag under Sean Darks' skin that allows the executive to enter restricted areas of his Ohio security company.
Jack Schmidig, the police chief in Bergen County, N.J., has a similar chip that doctors can use to find his medical records in an emergency.
And in a somewhat renegade use of the technology, Washington state entrepreneur Amal Graafstra unlocks his home and car and logs on to his computer using a chip he bought online and had implanted near his thumb.
All three say putting radio-frequency identification chips under the skin can improve people's lives. An implant is like having a set of keys, or an ID card, that can't be lost, they say. Graafstra jokes that he could end up naked in the alley outside his house and still get inside using the electronic key embedded in his hand.
And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666. (Revelation 13:15-18 ESV)
Great Idea : Post name on internet telling all people that you get into your house car and everything else by a chip in your thumb.
Instant Repercussion : Any dim witted criminal realizes that all he has to do is mug the guy and cut off his thumb and he can get access to anything that said guy has in a short period of time and probably fast enough that the police won't have time to even realize that our friend the millionare might be missing.
On December 12,2001 John Manley, who was at that time the Liberal Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, entered an agreement with Tom Ridge, the USA Homeland Security Director, called the 30 point Smart Border Declaration.By that agreement both signatories on behalf of their respective countries promised to create a new regime of North America. That plan included, among other things, the promise to introduce the radio frequency ID cards, biometric identifiers in documentation( DNA markers, eyeprints, fingerprints)
Maybe corporations will lead the charge in adopting these devices. It would present more opportunities for the electronics industry to sell you stuff, & patches for the inevitable software failures (wonderfully pertinent word here).
well this is the time when true Christians will be tested , will they take the mark or be that ''gold tried through the fire'' ,many things have been used to pre-condition people into this irect deposit,mondex,smart cards ,veri-chip, surviellience .
It is still not known to me what to do about these things, I strongly think it is tied to the mark of the beast.
My country will soon be forcing all residents and citizens to get fingerprint and dna id cards or give up all rights and services that you had before as a citizen, which basically means I won't be able to "buy or sell" (make a living or live normally like anyone else who gives the mark of their hand into these cards).
I think it is a sin to give up a mark from my body or if I refuse, to be refused the rights of a citizen anymore. But I don't know any other country I can move to that I can live normally either as I don't have any skills to move to other countries.
I feel I am going to be forced into living as a street person if I don't take this card because that is what it will come to, there will be no "refusal for religious beliefs" allowed, all must take it.
It doesn't matter what the advocates of this technology say about personal privacy safeguards and its boundless beneficial applications. God's people know where this is heading. Our Lord plainly tells us so in Rev.13:16. Satan must think the church is an absolute ignoramous regarding his wicked devices! "Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: The Lord knows those who are His".-2Tim.2:19. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
