Implanted Microchips Have Everyone Thinking About the Mark of the Beast

It sounds like something right out of the latest apocalyptic movie. An employee enters his workplace and waves his hand in front of a scanner to unlock and open the door. At lunchtime, he waves his hand in front of another scanner in order to pay for his meal. He has to use his hand because this is where his employer implanted the microchip.

It sounds eerily like what was prophesied in the book of Revelation about the Mark of the Beast: “The beast required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.”

As crazy as it sounds, the scenario isn’t fiction. The implanted microchip in the hand is about to happen at a technology company called Three Square Market (32M) based in River Falls, Wisconsin. The microchip is the size of a grain of rice and currently 50 employees are planning on having them implanted. According to a statement from the company, the microchip uses a technology called Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) and only takes seconds to get implanted between the thumb and forefinger.

CEO Todd Westby says, “We foresee the use of RFID technology to drive everything from making purchases in our office break room market, opening doors, use of copy machines, logging into our office computers, unlocking phones, sharing business cards, storing medical/health information, and used as payment at other RFID terminals.”

According to Westby the microchips aren’t GPS enabled and they can only be used to hold information, not to read information.

While the implantable microchip may be new to the United States, these chips have been the norm since 2015 for a Swedish company called Epicenter, where 150 employees have the tiny chips implanted in their hand.

Patrick Mesterton, co-founder and chief executive of Epicenter says, “The biggest benefit, I think, is convenience. It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.”

While at first Mesterton admitted that getting a chip implanted in his body was a huge decision, he now thinks of it as no big deal. He says compared to things like pacemakers that get implanted in people’s bodies, something like a chip that can communicate with other devices, is really no big deal.

The Epicenter employees who are chipped agree that it’s not anything to be overly concerned about. In fact, they view it as getting to play an important part of the future. According to Fredric Kaijser, the company’s chief experience operator, “And they all get excited about privacy issues and what that means and so forth. And for me it’s just a matter of I like to try new things and just see it as more of an enabler and what that would bring into the future.”

If these microchips truly are the wave of the future, and employers and the government require everyone to have one (just as they require social security numbers), there will be no way to “go off the grid.” Some say the implanted microchips have the potential to become, “big brother on steroids.”

Others, like Ben Libberton, a microbiologist at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute says that hackers will be able to take advantage of the technology to get a ton of information, and that as the microchips become more sophisticated, it will create a whole new set of ethical dilemmas.

Though many agree that implantable microchips can have many negative connotations, can it really be something that’s fulfilling end time prophecy? More specifically can this chip be the beginnings of the mark of the beast that John the Apostle wrote about in Revelation? One pastor says yes.

“I take microchipping as a form of the mark. There’s many pieces of the mark, and then again, all these pieces of the mark is designed to control,” says Pastor Dave Doyle from Hope Christian Fellowship Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Pastor Doyle also believes that governments will eventually make the implantable devices mandatory. Even so, he is warning his congregation to never get chipped.

“If I’m told I need to go against the Word of God, I would prefer to go to jail first. And Christians need to have that mindset because that’s what we’re going to go against,” he says.
