(By Ricky Scaparo) Microchip implants have been woven into the very fabric of society through keeping track of pets for some time now, but now people are getting them inserted in hopes of improving their lives. Society is quickly embracing microchip implants to unlock doors, log into cell phones and even make payments without the hassle of cash or credit cards. One example is Tim Shank who uses it to open his front door and manipulate his smartphone. “It turned off my ringer,” Shank said. Krissy Heishman uses hers instead of a key card at work. “It’s just like a little glass bead about the size of a tiny grain of rice,” Heishman said. They are among the growing number of people implanting technology under their skin to make their lives easier.

One individual Zoltan Istvan, who belongs to the Transhumanist Party even stated  “We need to get rid of the accessories. We don’t want to carry devices; we want the devices built into us,” said Zoltan Istvan. One frightening aspect to this is that people are bypassing hospitals to get these implants and instead are getting implanted through tattoo and piercing shops instead. One online company called “Dangerous Things,” sells the Microchip device and injection kit for $57. Also, a San Francisco company has also now developed tiny implantable digital tattoos that will authenticate credit cards, track your location, even collect health data. Recently an NBC News reported that microchipping of children will happen “sooner rather than later” and that Americans will eventually accept the process as something just as normal as the barcode.

I have harped on this for years and have stated over and over again that a generation is coming that will willfully embrace the coming Mark of the Beast System of Buying, Selling, and Trading in the name of convenience and the cultural normal.

Revelation 13:16-17 – He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

This system will be welcomed with open arms to a society that has been inundated with technology that is at their fingertips so why would they not have a microchip or any other device placed in their body? Many manufacturers are already working on hands-free or should I say device-free technology that will be in the very near future.  One example of this is Lenovo’s great introduction to a new bendable screen that snaps around your wrist like an old-school slap bracelet. It’s the company’s way of moving into a hingeless device era. So are we witnessing the Generation spoken of by John the Revelator that would see the Mark of the Beast that has been foretold for thousands of years? Are about to see an implant in the right hand or the forehead soon?
