What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish startup hub Epicenter. The company offers to implant its workers and startup members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers, or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand.
The injections have become so popular that workers at Epicenter hold parties for those willing to get implanted. more …
Opinion: Party time! Now that’s a new one. There is not even one mention of a very old but well-known prophecy:
“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 the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17
The masses will one day willingly line up to receive the mark, but this time it won’t be a party. Jesus called it the great tribulation:
“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Matthew 24:21
The first 3.5 years of the tribulation are over. The Jews initially accept (John 5:43) Antichrist:
“I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another shall come in his own name, you will receive him.”
Antichrist enters the Temple in the middle of the Tribulation and declares himself to be God, the Jews revolt against him (Re. 12:13-14).
“Now when the dragon (Satan) saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman (Israel) who gave birth to the male Child (Christ) But the woman was given two wings (possible aircraft) of a great eagle (possible divine protection of the 144000/Ex.19:4), that she might fly into the wilderness (Edom/Petra) to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time (3.5 years), from the presence of the serpent”.
The flight to the wilderness/mountains is found in Matthew 25:15-16:
“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”
Daniel 9:27 records that he, Antichrist, will demand worship but will be rejected. Rev. 13:11-15 introduces the False Prophet, 3rd person of the satanic trinity representing clergy of the final church:
“(He) had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon” who will cause the people of the earth to worship the beast. And it is the False Prophet who makes it mandatory to receive a mark on the hand or forehead.
And the mark just might be a chip the size of a grain of rice.
