Worldview WeekendBy John McTernan
There is not a more spine-chilling chapter in the entire Bible than Revelation chapter 13. This chapter describes the rise to power of a demonically inspired world dictator, similar in nature to Adolph Hitler. He is called the Beast, but is better known as the Anti-Christ. He uses a world financial system to control the people, as no one can buy or sell unless they are linked by a mark with a number to this system. This is found in Revelation 13:16,17 with the number being 666. It seems that everyone knows about the number 666, even those with little knowledge of the Bible, as it is identified as the devil's number! This is probably one of the best known verses in all the Bible.
For centuries, the fulfillment of these verses was a mystery. The mark was believed to be a tattoo. Christians believed by faith that, just prior to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus, a system would be in place where no one could buy or sell without this Mark. However, the understanding of these verses along with the possible fulfillment has really come into focus in the last 25 years. (Continued) The 666 Surveillance System
I have been writing that the Mark of the Beast would not be a micro-chip placed in the body, but rather it would be more like an electronic tattoo in the skin. I found an article that really shows this thought. Scientists have developed electrodes that are embedded in silk and placed on the skin like a tattoo. The silk dissolves and leaves the electrodes in place! This type of technology is what I see ending up as the Mark of the Beast.
This technology is rapidly advancing, and we shall soon see what direction this is going. Some different technology might be developed that could replace this, but I see this as the type of device that will be the Mark of the Beast. The electrodes will tie into the world-wide web, and everything in a person's life will be controlled by the 666 Surveillance System. I also believe the electrodes will be part of mind control.
