GETTING CLOSE: Tiny implants store info beneath skin... Replaces keys, medical docum

The Mark of the Beast

Revelation 16:17

16And the second beast required all people small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark — the name of the beast or the number of its name.

Bodyhackers Implant RFID Chips to Customize Themselves (2 min 33 sec)

The Wall Street Journal

When Information Storage Gets Under Your Skin

Tiny implants can replace keys, store business cards and medical data—and eventually a lot more

Members of the so-called bodyhacker movement have been implanting RFID chips under their skin, programming them to perform various tasks.

Patrick Paumen doesn’t have to worry about forgetting his keys and being locked out of his apartment. That is because he doesn’t need a key anymore—he simply unlocks the door with a wave of his hand.

The 32-year-old IT expert from the Dutch city of Heerlen is one of a growing number of people with electronic implants under their skin, mostly to use as keys or for identification.

Mr. Paumen has several such implants, or tags, embedded in the fatty tissue of his hands and his lower arm. He uses separate tags to unlock not only his apartment door, but also his office and the gate to a secure parking lot at work. Another stores information he would otherwise put on a business card—name and contact details—and yet another holds similar information for nonbusiness encounters.

The implants can be activated and scanned by readers that use radio frequency identification technology, or RFID. Those include ordinary smartphones and readers already installed in office buildings to allow entrance with a common ID card.

Mr. Paumen says the tiny devices simplify his life. When nearing the secure office parking lot, he says, “I just roll down the window, stick my arm out and let the reader at the gates scan the implant, which is just below my little finger. I don’t have to worry about losing my access card.”
Done in seconds

There is no comprehensive data on how many people have RFID implants in their bodies, but retailers estimate the total is 30,000 to 50,000 people globally.

The fact that the tags can’t be lost is one attraction. Another, users say, is that the tags don’t operate under their own power but rather are activated when they’re read by a scanner. That means they can never be rendered useless by a dead battery like smartphones.

It only takes a few seconds to inject the small glass cylinder containing a tag, the size of a grain of rice, under the skin. It can be done by anyone, but proponents say it is best done by a trained person with sterilized equipment to lower the risk of infection.

Once a tag is implanted, there can be an adjustment period: “They can move a little bit depending on skin type and activities,” says Quentin Inglis, owner of the Kalima Emporium, a tattoo and piercing studio in Worthing, England, who has implanted tags for several customers. Mr. Inglis keeps his business card on an implanted tag. “I do a lot of climbing, so mine moved around a bit until it found a position it was happiest with,” he says.

RFID subdermal implantation will not be acceptable in the United States until Christianity is demonized or there's some kind of great Falling Away of Christianity which we may be seeing at this time .

But is an RFID chip the actual mark of the beast or the device that will be used by the Beast to show allegiance to him ? In my opinion the answer is no .This is technology that is a precursor to what will eventually be a device that does not require implantation under your skin .

The fact that many people freely give away their privacy on a daily basis should make stupid conspiracy theories like this go away. But alas, there are, and will always be crazy people.

Examples of technology, used daily, that can be used to track you. Are all of these the mark of the beast?
