Over 50,000 people have been chipped worldwide with RFID. It contains 16 digits, 2 digits short of the 18 digit mark of the Beast. The concensus of opinion is that it is not the mark of the Beast in its present form, reason being that it is less than 18 digits, implanted on either the right or left hand, so far, and not the forehead. It does not yet serve as national ID, international passport, driving license, and bank account. All these four microcip IDs will be collapsed into one ID, harmonised worldwide and universalized and made imperative or compulsory by some kind of legislation and or economic boycot of those who reject it.
Concerning the mark of the Beast, I wish to draw our attention to the fact that it could be on either the right hand or the left. There are two verses of scriptures that speak about the mark of the beast. Rev.13:16 says right hand or forehead. “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:” Rev.14: 9 says forehead, or hand. “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,” In the light of these passages, either right hand, left hand, or forehead is valid. Anyone being chipped could chose to do it or the right or left hand or forehead. So, we cannot say that the current RFID is not valid because it is done on either hand only and not the forehead. I do not know assuredly that it is. On the other hand, I cannot tell anyone that it is not. My reasoned and informed opinion is that it is too dangerous to toy with eternity in Hell and the Lake of fire and Sulphur.
It is written: “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”(Rev.14:9-11). The fact that this statement is coupled with: “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.”(Rev.14:12-13); indicates that the saints will be here on Earth when this mark is being issued and will have the free will to choose this mark and live or reject it and die or be subjected to imprisonment, torture, starvation, economic boycot, or other indignities.
The fact the the rapture has not yet taken place nor the antiChrist identified does not invalidate the current RFID. The scriptures do not in so many words exempt the saints from this trial. The pretribs recognize that, though they relegate it to the so called “Tribulation Saints” or “those left behind.” These designations have not scriptural bases inasmuch as they are used to describe believers who are on Earth after the Pretribulational Rapture Of The Church. There are no Scriptures that explicitly or implicitly state the true believers in Jesus Christ will be here on Earth after the rapture. After the rapture, the wrath of God begins. And believers are exempt from the wrath of God. Therefore no true believers will be here during the Day Of the Lord judgment of the unrighteous wicked.
Receiving the mark of the beast is the same are worshipping the Beast because it is a mark of allegiance. It frees one from any harassment or embarrassment by the antiChrist and his acolytes. Besides, the one will be at liberty to buy and sell under the rule of the antiChrist, that is, enjoy all the economic benefits of the government of the antiChrist. It will function like a social security number and more. Fiat money will be credited to one’s account, thus, putting a chicken in one’s pot. Anyone who receives the Mark Of The Beast has bowed to the image of the Beast. The mark of the Beast is the number of a man, the antiMessiah. As in the ancient times, as is the present, people wear their gods on their persons as ear and nose rings, necklaces, bangles, and scarification marks etc.
Is The Mark Of The Beast Reversible?
The scriptures give no such option. Yes, it can be extracted or excised, but will by no means alter the fact that one has been branded. Here the scripture: if any man takes the mark of the beast, the wrath of God abides on him for ever( Rev.14:9-11). It is not by force, though one can be coerced, harassed, and hoodwinked into accepting it.
To receive it, hoping that one can excise it later on, thereby fooling the antiChrist and his ilk is to play with eternity in the Lake Of Fire. Some pretribs like Branon Howse, Jimmy De Young etc have of late be teaching that one can receive the mark of the Beast and repent later. This is very dangerous. Those who receive this mark cannot repent. They have sinned beyond repentance. It is not that God is unwilling to forgive them, but they are unwilling to repent. They are locked in impenitence. No matter how much God punishes them, they will not repent of their sins. They will rather blaspheme God the more.
For the purpose of clarity for all, when one takes the mark of the Beast, apart from being chipped, one’s names and details enter into the antiChrist’s data base, a giant computer at his headquarters at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Besides, it is also recorded in Heaven and in Hell. Moreover, this exercise is not just physical but spirirual. Anyone who takes the mark of the Beast is eternally altered in spirit, soul, and body. For starters, this allegiance is irreversible. The one has undergone grain flow. The plasticity of his human soul and spirit has be damaged beyond repair. The one has become incapable of repentance. It is not that God is unwilling to forgive the one, but rather that the one has become eternally impenitent. The more severe the punishment of God on the one, the more egregious the one’s blasphemy of God. Revelation 16:8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. 16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
The one who commits this act of giving allegiance to the Beast has become locked in unrighteousness. He is like the fallen angels who participated in the Satanic revolt in eternity past who can never repent. This kind of sin alters one internally and eternally into a grotesque and hideous creature whose spirit can never be recreated nor its soul renovated.
