Big Brother is watching
As we watched yet another Cyber Monday come and go, for many Swedish citizens a new age of how to buy and sell things has begun – in earnest. For years many have prophesied regarding the Mark of the Beast, including the late great Barry Smith from New Zealand. I was saved at one of his meetings and was fortunate to meet him in person.
Barry predicted in the 1990’s that the devices used to ID canines would one day be used on humans. For many this was unbelievable and unthinkable. Barry, like many others with a prophetic gift, believed that this could be a forerunner of the Mark of the Beast as spoken of in Revelation 13,
“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: 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.”
Now Sweden has started branding their citizens with the human micro-chip…en masse. This month the Daily Mail has reported the alarming increase. More than 4,000 Swedish people have now had the device embedded in their hand. This implant allows them to enter buildings, access concerts, operate printers, buy food and drinks, use vending machines, and share on social media. While it is being ‘sold’ as a great new thing, I believe that it has sinister undertones that we must all be aware of.
BioHax is the company behind the technology. It was founded by Jowan Osterlund (former body piercer) and BioHax are able to offer the procedure for only $180. The low cost is proving to be an incentive for several companies in Sweden who are now offering the procedure for FREE to employees.
Embedded within each microchip are details regarding the person’s identity. This feature enables the person to pass security into a building, for instance, without the need for other checks. In Sweden cash is also fast becoming a thing of the past. This fits in perfectly with the prophecy of the Bible that states that the Mark of the Beast will replace currency, as one will not be able to buy nor sell unless one has the Mark.
In addition, many believe that this Mark spoken of in Revelation, will be imposed or forced upon people – at the moment micro-chipping is voluntary. However, it is also widely agreed that the ushering in of the Mark in the future, will be preceded by a global economic crash. Already the financiers and economists are predicting the next crash will be worse than 2008 – The Irish Times.
Microchipping – The Pilot
In 2017 in Sweden, a pilot scheme offered around a hundred commuters the chance to use the implant. However, the implant is a permanent device injected under the skin of the hand. So the commitment level by the subjects has to be high. The RFID implants, which were developed in the USA, are less than the size of a grain of rice. For many years we have been micro-chipping our pets, now the “test” has become a reality in human beings. The train driver simply uses a smartphone to read the chip, the payment is confirmed from the passenger in a millisecond transaction – totally cashless.
It is safe to say that Sweden has always been considered a “liberal” society and it is the author’s belief that this ‘no boundaries’ mentality allows decisions like this to occur. It is also safe to say that Sweden goes further than the American companies in Wisconsin. Last year they implanted microchips in voluntary employees so that they could access vending machines and the like. The Swedish version enables the person to access work without the need for keys, credit cards become instantly obsolete, and transportation is so much easier. So what other data can be stored or should I say is being stored?
UK – A “Brave New World” Too?
While the scheme is exclusively in Sweden at the moment, the travel company utilizing the program uses the same bank cards as London’s Oyster cards, which many suggest the implanting could be used there in the near future.
However, there have been several problems with passenger privacy. A discovery by the train company in Sweden revealed that instead of displaying the person’s ticket details, their LinkedIn profile would pop up. This is being classed as a “hiccup”.
This all begs one major question: WHY?
Tracking of a Different Kind
With companies and firms racing to expand the usage of this technology with suggestions of “revamping the Healthcare system” one must be on full alert. Imagine your entire medical history stored on one microchip alongside all your banking details, relationships, connections/contacts, holiday info – the list is endless. Apart from the obvious privacy concerns, there has to be acknowledgement that misuse could occur. Man is a flawed being, who is easily tempted and loves to control others.
RFID, the makers of the chips, insist that they have not enabled or activated “tracking” within the human microchips. Oh, really? Well, if I’m not mistaken, I thought that the main purpose of having canines and animals chipped was so that they could be tracked if they ran off, wasn’t it?
Refuse it or accept it?
Therefore, a plethora of questions and dilemmas remain unanswered. The privacy issue is also expanding. What people are finding out now is that what they buy, how often they turn up for work and how often they travel a certain route is being generated as data and stored.
Another consideration is the danger of hacking. What if the wrong people hack and track YOU? The Swedish seem unconcerned about these ethical and moral dilemmas. For now you have a choice to join the “Chip Party” or not. However, what if someday a leader decides this is a great way to “secure a border” or “keep an eye” on you to “secure your safety?” Then what? I guess by then it will be too late.
I recall Barry Smith’s car stickers and I wish I had one now – REFUSE THE MARK!
Always remember…1 Corinthians 10:23,“I have the right to do anything,” you say–but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”–but not everything is constructive.”
