For many years I have been watching for indications that “the mark of the beast” may be at hand. Up until now, I have not found any that have specifically called for insertion of an electronic monitoring device in the RIGHT HAND.
Revelation 13 specifically states: “16 It[he] also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.” That’s the New International Version.
The King James Version states: “16And 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: 17 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.
The prophecy gives a clear explanation of what this specific mark will be used for — it will be required for ALL PEOPLE if they wish to “buy or sell.”
Here is the article that I became aware of this morning …

Who needs a boarding pass and passport verification checks when a simple wave of the hand will do before catching a flight at the airport? One relatively ordinary and unknown passenger was able recently to do just that, thanks to a biochip implanted in his right hand.
Could this be the future of flight boarding? It sounded like wishful thinking, until Andreas Sjöström implanted a microchip in his hand and uploaded his Scandinavian Airlines flight booking to it in order to board a plane out of Stockholm Arlanda Airport to Paris.
He used the implant to check into an airport lounge and go through the security checks. It is believed to be the first time anyone has boarded a flight this way – with the flick of a wrist.
This account recently published by Mail Onlines John Hutchinson explains that the Swedish Airport has installed Near Field Communication (NFC) readers that can scan data from a chip. The chips can be bought for as little as £50 ($72), and in this case, could be inserted underneath the skin by syringe, as it was the size of a grain of rice.
Speaking to Mic, Andreas Sjöström, vice president of digital for technology consulting company Sogeti, said: The system reacts as if you have the ordinary NFC sticker from the airline, so you’re eligible to pass through and it recognizes who you are… The biggest surprise was the feeling of being able to identify myself without anything other than my body.
I didn’t have to pull out anything. It gave me a new sensation, sort of a pre-notion of what it will be like in the future when we don’t have to reach out with physical objects to accomplish things.
The choice of airports as a testing ground may be new but the system itself isn’t. According to Max Plenke of mic.com, the technology is similar to that used last October by tech developer Patric Lanhed to make digital payments. Plenke explains that the chip Sjöström uses is an xNT implant from an American company called Dangerous Things, which produces biohacking and citizen science equipment. It’s also what Patric Lanhed used for a Bitcoin payment experiment.
Issues identified so far with this wrist-boarding process include the need for more detailed security checks, especially in these days of terrorist threats. Theres also the fact that many travelers are not likely to be enthusiastic about being cyborg-chipped merely for the convenience of a faster and easier plane-boarding process….
Joe Pappalardo of the dallasobserver.com explains that Anthony and his wife Janal have been clients of Ryan Mills, who has performed more than 50 implants in 2015 at the Skin Art Gallery tattoo parlor in Addison.
Pappalardo cites one of many bizarre procedures that Anthony and Janal have undergone under the minor surgical processes conducted by Mills: “A small incision in their right index fingers, a pea-sized magnet implant and a suture is all they needed to gain a new sensation. Janal and Anthony said they could feel nearby motors activate by the tingling sensation caused by the magnets stirring in their digits”….
The fringe commercial types, who design and inject mail-order devices into their bodies, call themselves “grinders.” The high-end researchers, with advanced degrees and government contracts, call themselves “bioengineers.”
They have radically different approaches, but they’re actually pulling humanity in the same direction – toward a fusion of hardware and wetware by incorporating technology into the body. The prime driver of both of these movements is the shrinking size of wireless electronics.
Pets were the earlier beneficiaries of implants containing information about the animals owners. The bio-chipping process in pets is now generally accepted in the U.S.
All this has been around for a while but is clearly gaining traction fast. Julianne Pepitone for Nbcnews.com in mid-2014 reported the case of cyborg Zoe Quinn, a well-known developer in the independent video game world. The magnet and chip in her hand have become inseparable from her body and her identity….
The biohacker believes that the future of implants can be found in ways to de-clutter your daily life. Keys, credit cards and smartphones are all things we carry around to identify ourselves, but one day, simply swiping your hand could replace these items.
Other uses for embedded NFC chips could be used to access buildings, activate devices such as guns locked to one owner, authenticate a bank or financial account. According to Sjoblad, biotechnology and embedded NFC chips will eventually become a quick digital identification process used for everyday purposes.
Here is the entire passage from Revelation 13 according to the Complete Jewish Bible, which details the coming of the “second beast” …
11 “Then I [John] saw another beast [the false prophet; Rev. 16:13, 19:20, 20:10] coming up out of the earth. It had two horns like those of a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon.
12 It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence; and it makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, the one whose fatal wound had been healed.
13 It performs great miracles, even causing fire to come down from heaven onto the earth as people watch.
14 It deceives the people living on earth by the miracles it is allowed to perform in the presence of the beast, and it tells them to make an image honoring the beast that was struck by the sword but came alive again.
15 It was allowed to put breath into the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could even speak; and it was allowed to cause anyone who would not worship the image of the beast to be put to death.
16 Also it forces everyone — great and small, rich and poor, free and slave — to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead 17 preventing anyone from buying or selling unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.
18 This is where wisdom is needed; those who understand should count the number of the beast, for it is the number of a person, and its number is 666.”
pray for protection and discernment,
and keep watching …
