Zero Hedge: “Implantable RFID tracking chips. You know, to stop terrorism.
And to keep tabs on all the welfare queens, in order to keep tax dollars accountable. There will be other rationales, too.
But really, governments just want to do all the spying they can within their power – and right now, technology offers more power than ever before to carry out universal surveillance, track and trace every person and every thing and put civil rights in the backseat where they belong.
The latest proposal from a politician in the Finnish government seems like a near-future dystopic film, but may not be far reality.
It’s not much of a stretch to imagine that the U.S., Britain or other governments in Europe would do this too, if they could get away with it.
In fact, an RFID chipped population could only be years away.”
Opinion: Not one mention of the ultimate usage: “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.” Revelation 13:16-17
Fox News September 1, 2014 “You can inject one under your skin and no one will ever notice. Using short-range radio frequency identification (RFID) signals, it can transmit your identity as you pass through a security checkpoint or walk into a football stadium.

Chip implants could also:
- Track the activities of felons
- Manage farm animals
- Unlock homes or cars, gain access to a building
- If children were chipped, teachers could take attendance in the classroom
- Police could track cars and read data without needing to scan license plates
- Locate abducted children
In a Biblically illiterate world, this is an easy sell. As the tribulation approaches we are told in Matthew 24:8 the sorrows leading to the end of the age will be like birth pangs; start small and grow in intensity and frequency.
Applying that to the 21st century society and Luke 21:26 “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth” an RFID chip will be welcomed and it is not hard to imagine people lining up willingly to get theirs.
And since you won’t hear a word about it in church …
