Mark of the Beast Chip Receives Alarming Amount of Positive PR

The tech company, Three Square Market, has received a flood of news coverage over its plan to implant microchips into the hands of a majority of its workers. The firm has 80 employees at the company’s River Falls headquarters, and more than 50 agreed to get implants.

The chip uses radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, the same method used with contactless credit cards. When activated by a reader, a small amount of data flows between the two devices via electromagnetic waves.

Todd Westby, the CEO of Three Square Market said participation was not required. When he told the team about the plan, there was some reluctance mixed with excitement. After further conversations, the majority of the workers agreed to get chipped. Westby said the implants are not GPS enabled, do not allow for tracking workers and do not require passwords.

“There’s really nothing to hack in it, because it is encrypted just like credit cards are … The chances of hacking into it are almost nonexistent because it’s not connected to the Internet,” he said. “The only way for somebody to get connectivity to it is to basically chop off your hand.”

The implants are made by BioHax International, a Swedish company specializing in ‘smart biometric sensors.” They have a hefty price tag of $300 per chip.

Epicenter, a startup hub in Sweden, started offering BioHax chips to employees earlier this year, according to The Los Angeles Times. The injections have become so popular that workers at Epicenter hold parties for those willing to get implanted.

The technology for this type of microchip is at least 30 years old. I find it amazing that so many news outlets would cover this story as if General Motors had announced that they are about to come out with a new flying car.

There is a good reason why these things are called implants. They have a width equal to a Tic Tac mint, and their length is similar to the diameter of a dime. Insertion requires being jabbed with an instrument the size of a meat thermometer. Because it is classified as minor surgery, people administering the implants have to be trained to do so.

I can find a host of problems with radio frequency identification chips. I would not put it past criminals to chop off hands; and modern scanners could easily copy the ID number. If someone quits a firm, he or she would have a useless implant stuck in his or her hand. Being a fidgety person, I would find it very uncomfortable to have something so large under my skin.

There have been health concerns with the implants. A research article by the Associated Press has shown that lab mice and rats that were injected with glass-encapsulated RFID transponders “developed malignant, fast-growing, lethal cancers in up to 1% to 10% of cases.” When PositiveID, a leading U.S. firm in RFID technology responded to the report, they said the levels of fatal cancer in dogs was only 1% (causing its stock to drop in half).

In 1994, I went to a prophecy lecture given by Terry Cook. He spoke primarily on the RFID microchip implant. The meeting time was delayed because of the lack of seating needed for the large number of people who came to hear Terry’s speech. Hotel workers spent twenty minutes bringing in extra chairs to the meeting hall.

What made Cook into a sensation back then is a book he had written depicting how modern technology could be used to track all humans on the earth—in a centralized financial system. At the time, his focus was on a firm called Verichip. The technology is now so basic, almost any chip manufacturer could mass produce the implants the Antichrist will likely use to enslave the world.

It is very chilling to notice that we have arrived at the point where the devil’s most sinister tool for controlling the masses—is being presented in the press as a logical choice for making security and financial decisions. All the major media stories about the BioHax chips read like propaganda fluff pieces, which shows that Satan must be working to desensitize the public about this technology. Because Bible prophecy is true, the day will soon come when people will line-up to get the mark the same way they are waiting for the latest iPhone.

I remember reading end-time cartoons from the 1970s that had people tattooed with “666” on their skin, and it baffled me how people could accept something so blatantly evil. It is now clear that the precise mix of technology and deception has created an environment wherein people fail to realize the deadly sequences of hearing the call, “Just hold out your hand if you want to join the club.”

The huge surge of social media and the need to belong—to be accepted, is another reason why taking a chip will become fashionable. The increase in body tattooing and body piercing over this past decade will also serve as a natural transition to accept a microchip. It might even become a status symbol!

“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: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”(Revelation 13:16-17).


Hate and Haters

Explosive confrontations were spawned by an Israeli crackdown because of the murder of two Jewish policeman guarding a Temple Mount entranceway.

If there is one word that can define the tumult surrounding the Temple Mount in Jerusalem at this late hour of this dispensation, that word is hate. Hatred against the Jewish race and against Israel has again come to the boiling point. It is coming from, in addition to the usual suspects, a source considered by a large part of the world’s population to be a bastion of not hatred, but love.

Since this source is supposedly Christian–the Catholic pope–there is reason, from my point of view, to analyze the matters involved through troubled cogitation. I say this because much of the Christian world–the world to which I belong–believe the Jewish race and the nation Israel to be under satanic attack.

My view is that those who are outraged at the Jews and at Israel come not from a godly perspective, but from undiluted hatred. It is profoundly disconcerting, to say the least, that all of this vitriol comes from those claiming the Christian religion as their own.

Pope Francis is joined in his mild-mannered but sub-surface rage against Israel by the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem. The Christian conglomerate, consisting of 13 religious bodies within the Jerusalem community, issued a joint statement condemning the violence surrounding the Temple Mount.

Although it was a condemnation of violence in general, the language reflects that of Pope Francis which, in tenor, was slanted toward support of the Muslim side. For example, the communiqué addressed all references to the sites of the area in Arabic terms rather than in Jewish or Christian terms. The statement clearly disregarded any connection of the Temple Mount area to the Jewish or Christian religions.

The statement read:

We, the Heads of Churches in Jerusalem, express our serious concern regarding recent escalation in violent developments around Haram ash-Sharif and our grief for the loss of human life and strongly condemn any act of violence.

The statement, like the Pope, placed the blame for the ongoing violence on the metal detectors and cameras Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has placed in key areas to prevent further terroristic acts. Netanyahu, it is reported, has agreed to remove the metal detectors at some point, but not all safeguards. He will keep cameras and other devices in place in spite of the tremendous criticism of governments around the world and of threats of further attacks from the Arab-Muslim troublemakers.

The 13-member Latin Patriarchate stated in its declaration:

We are worried about any change to historical (Status Quo) situation in al-Aqsa Mosque (Haram ash-Sharif) and its courtyard, and in the holy city of Jerusalem. Any threat to its continuity and integrity could easily lead to serious and unpredictable consequences, which would be most unwelcome in the present tense religious climate.

We value the continued custody of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on Al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy places in Jerusalem and the Holy Land which guarantees the right for all Muslims to free access and worship to al Aqsa Mosque according to the prevailing Status Quo.

The following news item frames the “Christian” community’s condemning tone, directed toward Israel.

The statement made no mention of the Muslim terror attack that led to Israel placing the metal detectors at the entrances to the site. Nor did it refer to the horrific Palestinian terror attack on Friday.

Bishop Munib Younan, head of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Jordan and the Holy Land, said on Vatican radio that the metal detectors are a form of “collective punishment” which should not be permitted “because of an attack by two persons.”

The bishop claimed that thousands of Muslims pray at the site during Ramadan and “everything goes smoothly”. He did not mention the murder of IDF Border Policewoman Hadas Malkah, which took place during Ramadan.

“It’s essential to find a political solution to end the Israeli occupation, which is considered illegal,” the bishop concluded. (Catholic Churches in Jerusalem Blame Israel for Muslim Violence, Deny Biblical Roots of Temple Mount, By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz, Israel News, July 23, 2017)

Though couched in high-sounding phraseology of religion-diplomatic speak, the hatred for the Jewish state is there. It is even more hateful in its thrust than such vitriol issued by other sources. This is because these are those who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ.

It is hate-speech of the most troubling sort, in my opinion.

Jesus, who is God,and, incidentally, is Israel’s Messiah, loves the Jewish people. To hate them and falsely accuse them, even though they certainly have erred greatly as have all other peoples, is to show hatred for Jesus.

The issuance of such condemnation, falling in line with all other hate-filled antagonists of God’s chosen people, invites, ultimately, the curse of God (Genesis 12:1-3).

Claiming to be “Christians”–if they are indeed so–these have no excuse for their deliberate denial that the Temple Mount as well as all the contested territory and far beyond was given to Israel in perpetuity by God, Himself.

Those who claim Christianity as their faith base should take into consideration what it means to hate that which the Lord loves. About hate and hatred, the Lord–who here was addressing Jews first, as the Church wasn’t born until Pentecost–said the following.

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me…

They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. ” (Jn 15: 18-21; 16: 2-3)

Is Pope Francis the False Prophet?

In last week’s article I wrote about the possibility of Emmanuel Macron being the Antichrist, and briefly noted that Putin could be Gog. I soon realized I left out Pope Francis as being a possible candidate for the False Prophet. What reminded me of this prospect is the content of a news story I came across;  Francis is once again attacking evangelical Christians—the group which lately seems to be his favorite target.

You would think that the “Holy Father” would be fully distracted by internal matters. The Vatican’s Swiss Guard recently broke up a drug-fueled gay orgy on the Vatican grounds. One of the Pope’s closest aides—the third-highest official in the Catholic Church, Cardinal George Pell—stands accused of several acts of sexual assault. Another Cardinal used half a million dollars from a Vatican-owned children’s hospital to renovate his luxury flat. Pope Francis also has a 2,000 case backlog of Pedophilia cases.

Francis has a fixation with finding problems with the Trump Administration. He criticized President Trump’s plan to build a wall on the southern border by saying, “Societies should build bridges not walls.” Francis has said that it’s immoral for President Trump to try to ban certain immigrants from coming to America. The Pope thinks that this is an evil policy stemming from his belief that our president has become a puppet of the religious right.

Last week, two close associates of Pope Francis co-wrote an article that accused Steve Bannon, the chief White House strategist of espousing “apocalyptic geopolitics” and then compared their assertion to being “not much different from that of Islamist extremists.”

The article states that Christian fundamentalism has a doomsday mentality that is “not the product of a religious experience, but a poor and an abusive perversion of it. This is why Francis is carrying forward a systematic counter-narration with respect to the narrative of fear. There is a need to fight against the manipulation of this season of anxiety and fear.”

The allegation that Steve Bannon is a Christian fundamentalist who wants to bring about Armageddon is a bald-faced lie. He is an Irish Catholic with basic conservative values. There is nothing in his background that would point to him having any type of extremist views.

It is not biblically wise to label people as spreading “anxiety and fear.” If the opposite is true, these critics are the ones promoting “peace and safety” which the apostle Paul forewarned will be a significant factor as the last days play out:

“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

The Pope has a loathing for evangelical Christians which is partly rooted in two baseless liberal falsehoods. Because we think Jesus is coming soon, liberals claim we don’t care about the dangers of “climate change” and if our Lord doesn’t show up, we’ll go straight into the Apocalypse by telling President Trump to push the nuclear button.

The real enemy that Pope Francis needs to warn against is Islam. This religion is aggressively taking over Europe. They probably already have plans for where they want to add minarets to St. Peter’s Basilica.

When Muslims murder people in the name of Allah, Francis is mostly silent. When he does speak, he denies the existence of Islamic terrorism. “Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements.

There is so much satanic delusion working to dull the senses of the general population that even when two Islamist terrorists killed a 85-year-old priest, Jacques Hamel, by slitting his throat on the altar—there was little outrage. Not even from the Pope. A year later, the attack has been completely forgotten.

Pope Francis has all the qualifications to be the False Prophet. He hasn’t yet called for a one world religion, but he is nearly there by stressing interfaith unity when he says, “We are all children of God.” Francis gives homosexuals a free pass by saying, “Who am I to judge?” He is clearly the type of man who would be for in favor of a movement to join together all of the world’s faiths.

The biggest factor against Pope Francis fulfilling the Bible’s prophecies about the False Prophet is his age. If the seven-year Tribulation started today, the Pope would be 87 at the time of Armageddon. Pope John Paul II lived to be 84, and he carried out his duties despite very poor health. If Pope Francis was empowered by Satan, he could live to be 100.

If the Pope is the False Prophet, he has a very simple role to play in Bible prophecy. Because he is so popular, all he would need to do to get people to follow the Antichrist is tell the world, “Here is your savior.” If Pope Francis soon strikes up a tight relationship with a world leader, we may have yet another indication that the Rapture is about to take place.

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live” (Revelation 13:11-14).


Temple Mount Movement

Rapture Ready News headlines tell the story. Things are shaking on and around Moriah, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It is the  geographical area most central to Bible prophecy yet future.

Those headlines are:

Muslim authority protests Temple Mount security measures, blocks entranceMinisters approve bill aiming to take Jerusalem off the negotiating table

Arab-Israeli lawmaker warns of third intifada after Friday attack

Closing the Aksa Mosque;

Jordan’s King Abdullah calls for calm after Temple Mount attack.. 

No doubt about it, things are moving and shaking on and around the Temple Mount. Considering all the other signals taking place in the world today, the import of this activity should alert the student of Bible prophecy to the lateness of the hour.

The Temple Mount is not only the nucleus problem of the historical, Arab/Israeli ages-long conflict. That place where once sat the Holy of Holies in the midst of the Temple, housing the Shekinah glory of God within the Ark of the Covenant, is at the heart of the spiritual warfare that began with man’s Fall in the Garden.

It is where the ram was provided for the sacrifice God required, sparing Abraham’s son Isaac from serving that purpose. It is very near where God’s own Son hung suspended between Heaven and Hell as sacrifice for the sin of mankind in order to provide eternal salvation.

Mount Moriah is where the Tribulation Temple will be built and where Satan’s evil one, the son of perdition, will claim himself to be God.  

There is coming a great, planetary spiritual earthquake, and its epicenter is this very spot that is smack in the middle of our headlines today.

The rumblings from that spiritual seismic area is growing daily.

When three terrorists murdered two Israeli police officers, the latest quivering of Moriah began.

The officers were killed near the gates to the Temple Mount and the Israeli prime minister took action that infuriated the Muslims of the region and around the world.

Netanyahu closed the Temple Mount to Muslim worship at the religion’s sites on the Mount. This brought immediate anger and threats of a third intifada, or violent uprising.

The Israeli prime minister eventually agreed to gradually open some areas for worship on the Temple Mount. (Only Muslims are allowed to worship there; the Jews are forbidden to do so.)

Netanyahu, however, placed detection devices–metal detectors and specially placed surveillance cameras–to restrict possible terrorist activity.

King Abdullah phoned the Israeli prime minister to lobby for the gates to be fully opened, thus access to the worship places restored.

Before leaving on his trip to France and Hungary, Netanyahu dismissed the oft-repeated charge that the Israeli government was “disrupting  the status quo” in Jerusalem and at the Temple Mount. This is a charge that has brought on violent rampages from the Arabs in the past.

“I decided that as of tomorrow, in the framework of our policy of maintaining the status-quo, we will gradually open the Temple Mount, but with increased security measures,” Netanyahu said.

“This evening, I held a discussion with the top security leadership and I instructed that metal detectors be placed at the entrance gates to the Temple Mount. We will also install security cameras on poles outside the Temple Mount… which give almost complete control over what goes on there,” the prime minister added.

The action threw the Muslim element into a frenzy of threatened violence. The crowds could be heard shouting: “Disgrace, enough with that, you are suffocating us! Al-Aksa belongs to Muslims!”

The anger is directed at the new safeguards against terrorists bringing weapons into the Temple Mount area. Apparently, the safeguards Netanyahu installed are doing a good job of keeping out those tools of the Muslim militants who plan for future such actions as took the lives of the policemen.

Tremors spawned from the rage that continues to build in and around this most critical promontory on the map of prophecy yet future are scheduled to grow stronger, not weaker. We know that it is all moving toward the time Jesus Himself prophesied nearly 2 millennia ago.

“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (Matthew 24:15-21)
