Could the Verichip be the Mark of the Beast?by Loren Davis
On April 25, 2006 The Wall Street Journal featured Loren and Celeste Davis on the front page. The Wall Street Journal said that few American preachers…have seen their ministries climb so steeply in Africa as Mr. Davis'.
Our concern comes directly from our experience in Africa. The U.N. has already attempted to insert these microchips in refugees in African refugee camps. One of our village assistant pastors who works for the U.N. has first hand knowledge.
What is the Verichip? The Verichip is a microchip the size of a grain of rice that will hold all the I.D. data of a person. It is injected IN a person's skin with a needle. (See Google: Verichip)
Rev 13:16 "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:" I think it is more than coincidence that the Verichip is put IN the body with a needle.
The Mondex I.D. microchip is another chip developed by Mastercard and is designed to take the place of a credit or debit card. These both are set up to replace using money, credit and debit cards for transacting business. The Mondex chip is also inserted IN the skin by a needle. "Mon" stands for money and "dex" comes from the word dextar which means RIGHT HAND. (See Google: Mondex)
SOME ARE ALLERGIC TO THE VERICHIP. IT CAN CAUSE A TERRIBLE SORE.
When one looks at this scripture below, it should make us pause regarding the Verichip. Rev. 16:2 "and there fell a noisome and GRIEVOUS SORE upon the men which had THE MARK OF THE BEAST," Again, this has to be more than coincidental that these chips can cause terrible sores.
In most states in the U.S.A. animals must have a computer chip implanted in their ear so they can be positively identified for buying and selling. Programs are now being implemented putting GPS I.D. bracelets and watches on children to locate them if they are lost or kidnapped. This is called the RFID, Radio Frequency Identification. It is only one step inserting the Verichip in children. We are being conditioned to accept this. Welfare recipients will be required to take the chip for positive identification to prevent welfare fraud. The Onstar GPS system is now widely used in cars for direction finders and for unlocking locked cars by remote control. The number six, six, six, is becoming a common number for doing business transactions. Mexican government officials now have to take the chip to have access to sensitive security areas. (Google: verichip/Mexico). People are now being conditioned to take the chip in the name of security, accounting, efficiency and prosperity. I am sure eventually this will also be used in the name of "Border Control". Some soldiers are being given the chip to keep track of them. (Google: Verichip) The movie "Enemy of the State" portrays how this system might work.
Most cell phone companies are now offering a GPS service so parents can track their kids and know exactly where they are. Some parents are even considering chipping their children in the neck to track them.
Some major insurance companies and hospitals are promoting a medical implant of the Verichip in the right arm of their customers and patients to make sure they are getting the right treatment. See: http://www.verichipcorp.com/news/1145900688, and http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/techinnovations/2006-07-16-medical-implant_x.htm
In America, Walmart and other stores now have self checkout stands. Just scan the bar code of the product and give your debit or credit card. Walmart is now putting chips in all their products for I.D. purposes. Purchasing petrol is done cashless with a credit or debit card. Microchips are in everything. This is only one short step to the Verichip. This is where the globalization of the economy is headed.
THE ANTICHRIST WILL SEEK TO RULE THE WHOLE WORLD
*Revelation 13:7 "And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and POWER WAS GIVEN HIM OVER ALL KINDREDS, AND TONGUES, AND NATIONS." Rev 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth THE WHOLE WORLD:" Rev 13:16 "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:"
THE UNITED NATIONS PLAN TO BECOME A CENTRAL WORLD GOVERNMENT
In 2000 the U.N. had two global summits that set out a plan for them to have world governance. This would in affect be a socialistic/communistic world government. It will probably have some capitalistic elements in it like China. The U.N. is promoting Interfaith prayer meetings and conferences. All religions are being involved: Islam, Christianity, Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. Why is the U.N. calling prayer meetings? This is being done in the name of World Peace. They do not mind people saying God, but they are opposed to them mentioning Jesus Christ. They say that advocating a single savior is not conducive to world peace. UNESCO and other political global initiatives have plans to use the church to implement their global peace plans. That is amazing since the U.N. and some of these other organizations are godless and antichrist. www.crossroads.to/articles2/TwoSummits.htm www.millenniumpeacesummit.org/partaker.html www.un.org/millennium/webcast/statement/USA.htm
THE U.N.'S GLOBAL PEACE PLAN
The U.N., Rick Warren and the New Age all have their Global Peace Plans. These organizations are now working in coordination and, in appearance, as a coalition. In the name of humanitarianism, the U.N. and other religious organizations are making the nations dependent upon them for their survival. No one is against humanitarian aid when there is truly a crisis, but now these organizations are providing aid even when there is no crisis. This is breaking the work ethic of the people and making them dependent on the U.N. for their survival. The U.N. and other NGO's are telling the pastors that they can talk about God, but NOT ABOUT JESUS. (We were told this personally in the villages in Africa). Because of their great poverty, it is very difficult for many of these poor national pastors to resist this antichrist takeover of the church. This is setting up the churches in the third world to be used as the stations where the Mark (computer chip) could be given out. Right now these poor people have to use I.D. cards to get aid. The chip will replace the I.D. cards. The people will either take the chip or starve.
THIS IS WORLD CONQUEST BEING DONE IN THE NAME OF PEACE.
THE ANTICHRIST WILL COME AS A MAN OF PEACE *Daniel 8:25 "And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and BY PEACE shall destroy many:"
WILL CHRISTIANS GO THROUGH THE GREAT TRIBULATION?
THE GREAT TRIBULATION IS THE TIME OF THE WRATH OF GOD.
*Matthew 24:21 says, "For there shall be GREAT TRIBULATION such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor shall ever be."
The GREAT TRIBULATION IS basically THE SEVEN TRUMPETS (Revelation 9:14), SEVEN VIALS (Revelation 15:7), SEVEN SEALS (Revelation 5:1), AND THE SEVEN THUNDERS in the book of Revelation. It is an unleashing of the unbridled WRATH OF SATAN AND THE WRATH OF GOD in a great confrontation on the earth. Unrepentant sinners will be the target of God's wrath. Rev. 2:22
*Matthew 3:7 "Who hath WARNED YOU TO FLEE FROM THE WRATH OF ALMIGHTY GOD." *Revelation 6:16 "And they said, hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne and from THE WRATH OF THE LAMB" (Jesus is that Lamb. John 1:29). *Revelation 6:17 "FOR THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH (referring to God) is come, who shall be able to stand?" Rev. 14:19, 15:7 *Revelation 19:15 "The FIERCENESS and WRATH OF ALMIGHTY GOD."
ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, THE CHURCH (true Christians) WILL NOT TASTE OF THE WRATH OF GOD which is THE GREAT TRIBULATION.
*I Thessalonians 5:9 "For God HATH NOT APPOINTED US TO WRATH." *I Thessalonians 1:10 "...even Jesus, WHICH DELIVERED US FROM THE WRATH TO COME." *Romans 5:9 "...being justified by his blood, WE SHALL BE SAVED FROM WRATH through him." *Revelation 3:10 "I will KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, (The Great Tribulation), which shall come upon all THE WORLD." *I Corinthians 10:13 "...who WILL NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED above that ye are able, but WITH THE TEMPTATION, ALSO WILL MAKE A WAY OF ESCAPE."
THE GREAT TRIBULATION IS ACTUALLY NOT SEVEN YEARS , BUT THE LAST THREE AND A HALF YEARS.
*Daniel 9:27 says "And he shall confirm THE COVENANT with many for ONE WEEK: and IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK (3 1/2 years) he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." THE FIRST THREE AND A HALF YEARS WILL BE WORLD PEACE NOT GREAT TRIBULATION.
Dan. 8:23-25 says that the Antichrist will come as a Man of Peace. He will deal treacherously and with craftiness (with trickery) and BY PEACE WILL DESTROY MANY. This is laying the frame work for a world dictator. Freedom will be dead.
WILL CHRISTIANS BE HERE OR BE RAPTURED BEFORE THE ANTICHRIST COMES INTO POWER AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST IS GIVEN?
II Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come A FALLING AWAY FIRST, and THAT MAN OF SIN BE REVEALED, the son of perdition;" When the Antichrist is revealed or recognized, it will only be to Christ's people who know the Bible, not the world. So we would have to be here when he initially comes on the world scene for him to be revealed.
Many preachers are saying a great world wide revival is coming that will usher in the Second Coming of Christ. That is not what the Bible says. Its says there will be A FALLING AWAY FIRST. The FALLING AWAY would be from the Church. Although many are accepting Christ today, millions of Christians have lost their faith. Not only that, but most Christians are FALLING AWAY from sound Bible doctrine. 2 Tim. 4:3
CONSIDER THE SCRIPTURES: *2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 "Now we beseech you, brethren, by THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, and by OUR GATHERING TOGETHER UNTO HIM (being caught up, The Rapture). that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, as that the day of Christ is at hand. LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU BY ANY MEANS: FOR THAT DAY shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and THAT MAN OF SIN (Antichrist) BE REVEALED, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that HE AS GOD SITTETH IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD, SHOWING HIMSELF THAT HE IS GOD." Since he is sitting in the Jews Temple as God, this shows us that the Jews will accept him as their messiah. Only 144,000 Jews will not accept him as messiah. Rev. 7:4-10. This will not be an atheistic movement.
Dan 9:27 says, "and in the midst of the week he shall CAUSE THE SACRIFICE and the oblation TO CEASE," The sacrifice will be in the Temple where the Antichrist will be sitting. When he breaks the peace covenant with Israel, he will then stop the sacrifices in the Temple.
Matt 24:15 "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:)" People who do not know the Bible would never understand. Jesus clearly here was talking to His believers. He told them we shall SEE this, which has to mean that true Christians will be here when the Antichrist first comes into power.
Rev 14:9-10 "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand," This warning is not to unbelievers. The world would never understand this warning; therefore, true Christians must be here when the warning is given not to take the Mark.
The push for GLOBALIZATION, the ONE WORLD MOVEMENT and a GLOBAL ECONOMY is setting the stage for the Verichip and Mondex chip to be used in the coming electronic global economic system. This is coming faster than we would like to think. With the Tsunami (Rev. 16:20) and Hurricane Katrina destroying New Orleans, it appears that these are just precursors to the Great Tribulation the Bible predicts is coming. I definitely believe they are warnings from God. God will use nature to fight sinners in the Great Tribulation. Rev. 9:14, 15:7, 5:1, 2:22
Most likely THE MARK OF THE BEAST will be OPTIONAL in the first three and a half years. It will initially be implemented slowly. *Revelation 13:16-18 "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. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." The Mark is NOT just the number 666. It is one of three things: the number, the name of the Beast, or the Mark, which is the logo of the Beast. A microchip is so small that you will never know what's inside it.
NOTE: THE VERICHIP IS BEING MANUFACTURED NOW!
The FDA has given Florida the approval to start manufacturing the Verichip. If they are manufacturing it now, it means people are going to start being injected with it immediately. There is going to be a demand. We were deep in the bush towards Sudan building churches. There was a huge U.N. camp there. One of our assistant pastors who also worked for the U.N. told us that the U.N. tried to insert the microchip into the refugees at the camp for identification, but the pastors there stopped them. If the Rapture is absolutely certain to take place BEFORE THE MARK IS GIVEN, what are we going to do about the Verichip and Mondex microchip being manufactured now? (See Google: Verichip or Mondex)
IT WILL BE IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK THAT THE COVENANT OF PEACE WITH ISRAEL AND THE PALESTINIANS, PROBABLY BROKERED BY THE U.N., WILL BE BROKEN. IT IS AT THIS TIME, after three and a half years, THAT IT WILL BECOME MANDATORY TO TAKE "THE MARK OF THE BEAST". THOSE WHO REFUSE THE MARK WILL BE KILLED.
*1Thessalonians 5:3 "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." *Revelation 20:4 "And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were BEHEADED for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which HAD NOT WORSHIPPED THE BEAST, NEITHER HIS IMAGE, NEITHER HAD RECEIVED HIS MARK upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." *Matthew 24:22 "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."
*Matthew 24:24 "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
TYPES OF CHRISTIANS WHO ARE VULNERABLE TO TAKE THE MARK
DOMINIONISTS mock at the Rapture. They believe that Christians will conquer the governments and economies of the world and then Jesus will come back and sit in the Temple. Many of the dominionists are involved in coalition now with other Global Peace Movement organizations which are openly antichrist. It will be easy for them to believe that this Man of Peace, the Antichrist, is the Second Coming of Christ, and this Global Peace that has come is the beginning of the Millennium. Most of them will probably take the Mark. Many religions are looking for this Man of Peace to come, they just call him by different names.
The PRE-TRIB RAPTURE believers who believe the Great Tribulation is Seven Years and dogmatically believe that THE RAPTURE WILL TAKE PLACE BEFORE the Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast come, most likely will take the Mark. These will be told by their preachers that the chip cannot be the Mark because we are still here.
REMEMBER, THE ANTICHRIST WILL SIT IN THE TEMPLE BEFORE JESUS DOES. THE DAY WILL COME WHEN JESUS WILL REIGN IN THE TEMPLE AND BRING IN THE MILLENIUM, the thousand years of peace. But the Bible predicts a false Christ and false peace will come first. In Mt. 24:24 Jesus said that if we possible, even the very elect would be deceived.
THE ANTICHRIST MAY COME BEFORE JESUS COMES BACK
The Book of Revelation warns emphatically in Revelation 14:9, "DON'T TAKE THE MARK". Don't gamble with your soul! I strongly admonish you to NEVER TAKE ANY CHIP or MARK in your RIGHT HAND or FOREHEAD as the Bible warns. If the chip is in the right hand or forehead, and particularly if it has to do with buying and selling, IT IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST! It's better to be safe than sorry. THINK! The Verichip or Mondex chip connected to the GPS satellite system will make it impossible to hide. There will be no choice but to conform with this world's economic system. You will be unable to access your checking or savings accounts or do any business without the Mark. There is no excuse for not understanding what's going on and for taking the Mark. In the name of security and prosperity, FREEDOM WILL BE DEAD! According to the Bible, there will be no place found for forgiveness if one takes the Mark. The Bible says the person who takes the Mark will face the wrath of God in this life and eternal punishment.
Rev 19:20 "he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."
"THE FIVE WISE AND FIVE FOOLISH VIRGINS" AND THE TIMING OF THE RAPTURE
*Matthew 25:1-7. The FIVE WISE VIRGINS were looking for the bridegroom to come and were ready when he came. The FIVE FOOLISH were NOT LOOKING FOR THE BRIDEGROOM AND WERE LEFT BEHIND. The KINGDOM NOW MOVEMENT definitely fits the mold of the FIVE FOOLISH VIRGINS, because they ARE NOT LOOKING FOR CHRIST, the bridegroom, TO COME.
THE MAJORITY OF THE SCOFFING regarding the Coming of the Lord (Rapture), is coming from those in THE KINGDOM NOW, DOMINION NOW MOVEMENT as well as overt unbelievers in the world. *II Peter 3:3-4 says, "Knowing this first, that there shall come SCOFFERS...and saying, "WHERE IS THE PROMISE OF HIS COMING?" *Hebrews 9:28, "...and unto them that LOOK FOR HIM SHALL HE APPEAR THE SECOND TIME..." According to these scriptures, people who DON'T BELIEVE IN THE RAPTURE, will be LEFT BEHIND when Christ appears, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT LOOKING FOR HIM.
The Five Foolish Virgins who were left behind may very well be a type of those who believe the Rapture will take us before the Mark is given and the Antichrist comes. The problem of the FIVE FOOLISH VIRGINS was that THE BRIDEGROOM CAME LATER THAN THEY THOUGHT. That is why their lamps went out. It is possible that the Rapture will be LATER than most Christians think. If we are not prepared, we could very well be caught in an inescapable trap.
Luke 21:28 "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh"
THE ANTICHRIST MOVEMENT IS HERE NOW AND GETTING STRONGER
The DaVinci Code
The book, movie and television programs on The DaVinci Code blasphemously declares that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and is not really the Son of God. Islamic Jihad has declared war on Christianity. In America the Ten Commandments and nativity scenes have been outlawed from government properties including schools. Christ and the Bible have been driven from the classroom of American schools. The History, Discovery and National Geographic TV networks and other programming constantly airs the DaVinci Code attacking the divinity of Christ and the Bible. The New Christianity is the gospel of self esteem, good works, money and success. The fundamentals of the faith are hardly mentioned anymore in the pulpits. Overall, Christianity has evolved into a politically correct, inoffensive religion. This is WAR ON THE LAMB of God, Jesus. Jn. 1:29.
WAR ON THE LAMB
Rev 17:14 "These shall make WAR WITH THE LAMB, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: " The Bible predicted this global antichrist movement was coming. It also predicts the outcome. The enemies of Christ will be destroyed by Christ Himself.
WHAT WILL WE DO WHEN THE VERICHIP OR MONDEX CHIP IS OFFERED TO DO BUSINESS AND THE RAPTURE HASN'T TAKEN PLACE?
Don't take it even if it is in the arm. This is just a precursor conditioning you to take it in the right hand or forehead and it has to do with buying or selling, IT IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST.
SIGNS OF THE TIMES No one knows the day nor the hour (Mt. 25:13), but we were given the signs of the times Mt. 16:3). Matt. 16:3 "O hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but YE CAN YE NOT DISCERN THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES."
HOMOSEXUALITY is spreading rapidly and being promoted. It is now like the days of Lot. Lk. 17:28. Athiestic communist CHINA is now rapidly rising to be an economic and military superpower. The Bible predicts that an army of 200 million will rise out of the East in the Great Tribulation and will kill a big percentage of people on the earth. Revelation 9:16, 16:12. IRAQ is in the forefront of the news. Iraq is ancient Assyria and Babylon which is mentioned often in end time prophecy. Rev. 16:12-14, 9:13-21 (The Euphrates River is in Iraq); Micah 5:1-7. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict seems unsolvable. This will bring about THE COVENANT OF PEACE with the Antichrist (Dan. 9:27), and eventually Armageddon. Rev. 16:16, Zechariah 14:2.
We must not ignore these signs that are here now. We must be prepared for the worst case scenario.
Make plans now how to BE INDEPENDENT FINANCIALLY because this global economic system is coming sooner than we would like to think. Get out of debt. Barter with other Christians for products you need, but whatever you do, DON'T TAKE THE MARK. Even if you don't worship the beast, taking the Mark alone will damn you for eternity and will mark you for the wrath of God which is coming in the Great Tribulation. Rev. 19:20
THANK GOD THAT HE HAS MADE A WAY OF ESCAPE FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM. 1 Cor 10:13 "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT."
Brother and sister in the Lord. We don't need to rely on this coming one world system to survive. A trap is being set now in the name of peace that the Word of God explicitly warned us about!
God will provide for His own. Psalms 37:25 "I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging for bread." Be a tither and a giver, Mal. 3:10. God promises to take care of His own. If God can feed Elijah with the ravens; the children of Israel with quail and manna from heaven; provide honey from the lions carcass for Samson; give water from a rock for Moses; multiply the loaves and fishes to feed the 5 thousand, He will provide for you.
But by far the most important issue is not our physical survival, but our spiritual survival. Matt 16:26 "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? It would be better to die hungry, than to go to hell for eternity with a full belly. Jn. 14:1, Matthew 10:32
Whatever you do, DON'T LOSE YOUR ETERNAL SOUL! Get right with Jesus today! Jn. 3:3, Romans 10:9-10. If you can't serve Him now, you will never be able to when the Mark is given.
