With technology as commonplace as a cell phone or a vacuum, many in cyberspace can already track users’ every move. Add these technological advancements to personal implanted RFID chips, and you have what Revelation in the News calls the “slow indoctrination” of the mark of the beast. A Wisconsin-based company is the first in the United States to offer employees the chance to implant a microchip between their thumb and forefinger to pay for snacks out of the vending machine, among other uses.

“It seems so casual,” Ricky Bakker, son of famed evangelist Jim Bakker, says. “It’s convenient, you know. I don’t want to have to carry my wallet around or I don’t want to have cash in my pocket, so I’ll just take a little microchip inside my hand. I’ll scan it, I’ll have my lunch for the day. I’ll be able to get into the building, I’ll be able to clock in, clock out. But what happens when we get to the point where our credit cards, Social security numbers, every little detail about our lives is on this thing?” CONTINUE
