RFID is the Mark of the Beast!
Well once again we are getting people who say the Mark of the Beast - the Anti-Christ is the RFID chipping of everyone in the world which is physically impossible. A lot of world can't give its people clean drinking water or basic medical care so paying for the technology infrastructure is out of the question. Besides a lot of the world's population works off the barter system. For those that claim RFID is the mark of the beast, there people around the world that don't have access to electricity but that doesn't matter to these RFID claimers.
So what could scripture really mean when it states everyone will have a 'mark'? Lets look at scripture to see... Genesis 4:15 states that our Father set a MARK upon Cain - why? It was a sign of the work of Cain's hand, the by-product of his heart & actions from following his flesh, which was murder. In Job 10:14 we see where it says... "If I sin, then You MARK me, and will not acquit me of my iniquity." This again shows we are MARKED when we sin - and its obvious that without the sacrifice of the Lamb of God, we are lost in sin with no hope of salvation. Again the MARK is a sign our heart and the actions that stem from it. In Psalms 37:37 we see... "MARK the blameless man, and observe the upright; for the future of that man is peace." Again the sign or mark of a righteous man, one who does not continue in sin is seen and it results in peace with God and with our neighbors. Ezekiel 9 shows a MARK placed on those that sighed and cried over all the abominations going on - those who had a heart for God. The ones that were killed were the ones who did not have a heart for God and His commandments; those who reveled in sin. Again a mark showing the actions that came from one's heart - in this case it was a mark of those who followed the Father. When we get to Galatians 6:17 we see that Paul says he bore on his body the MARKS of the Lord Yeshua - again another mark that is a byproduct of one's following the Father. However as scripture points out we see those that pretend to follow the Messiah but are actually false teachers and false prophets, some who have infiltrated the body... Jude 1:4 "for certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were MARKED out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ." Again this MARK is a by product of false teachings, bad doctrine and continued sin (transgression of the Father's law). So now that we have a good understanding of what a MARK is, then we can more clearly understand scripture. Revelation 13:16 says "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." This in my opinion, when knowing what we have seen in past scriptures, see its not about 'chipping' everyone. Rather its about those who act on their fleshly desires and physical commit sin (mark is their right hand) then there are those who don't physically commit the sin but they still indulge the sinful flesh by thinking about it (the mark on their foreheads). If we take this to be the meaning, then these 'marks' can be applied to everyone in the world (if they continue to reject the Messiah & do not repent). This works. Others will immediately say "But Revelation say NO one may buy or sell without the mark!!! So your wrong!" To this I reply "What is the context of the book of Revelation? Where does it all take place? In the fact that the Messiah is prophesied to return and place His feet on the Mount of Olives, the context is Israel and the surrounding (pagan) nations which will come against Him. Its not about foreign places that are no where near Israel or that everyone will be 'chipped'. This is again confirmed by Rev 14:9, 11, etc. What the mark of the antichrist and those that follow him, are those that worship the beast and his image. These are those that do not repent and will face death for not doing so. The great news is that those who follow the Father and do not continue in sin physically and in their heart will reign with the Messiah for 1,000 years. Thats my take on what the MARK of the beast is from what I see in scripture. Now would I let someone 'chip' me? No but that is for different reasons.
