VeriTeQ Acquisition Corporation, the new company set up by the former CEO of VeriChip Corporation, has revealed that they intend to market their RFID technology to the manufacturers of breast implants. Thousands of women across Europe are having to consider the possibility of having their breast implants removed after it was discovered that a French firm used industrial silicone, harmful to humans, as a cheaper alternative to the type normally used in the medical profession. Now the European Union is considering passing legislation that would require breast implant manufacturers to electronically 'tag' their products so they can be identified inside the body. Scott R. Silverman, Chairman and CEO of VeriTeQ, believes this is a service VeriChip can provide. The chip has already undergone trials on Alzheimer patients in the US. There had previously been talk of US soldiers and even UK prisoners being chipped, but now patients with artificial implants may find that they have become the next Guinea pig in this grand identification experiment.
Quote: “Scott R. Silverman, Chairman and CEO of VeriTeQ, stated, “The current system for identifying surgically implanted medical devices is archaic and flawed. Once a device is in a person’s body, there is no way to know for certain which company manufactured the device or what the specific device is. Embedding our VeriChip within a medical device prior to insertion enables a healthcare professional to scan the area of the patient’s body where the device is implanted and receive immediate and accurate confirmation of what the device in question is and its manufacturer.”
The Bible states that during the tribulation period, a man will arise who will cause “ 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”, Revelation 13:16-17. Today the technology exists that could fulfil this prophecy. The first time I ever came across the VeriChip was on the internet around seven years ago. The Star Online ran an article on it just following the Asian Tsunami of 2004. In it they mentioned the VeriChip as a possible high-tech solution to the problem of identifying the remains of the quarter of a million people who perished during that cataclysm. This is what they wrote...
Quote: “The VeriChip is about the size of a grain of rice, virtually undetectable and practically indestructible once inserted under the skin – usually in your right hand or forehead. The chip has a special polyethylene sheath that helps skin bond to it, so that it stays in place. Since the chip has no battery, there are no chemicals to worry about and the chip never “runs down” – its expected life is up to 20 years. Tourists entering a country are scanned at the immigration checkpoint. They can pay for their taxis, groceries and hotel rooms with just a swipe of the hand. As they travel throughout their holiday destination, they leave behind an electronic trail which is recorded not only in this country but also in the home credit card company.
...and this is coming from a secular source. In all that time I have only found one other news article that mentions the VeriChip as being implanted in the hand and used for financial transactions.
I don't think this is all just mere coincidence. God, who declares the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10), has chosen to reveal to us in His Word what must shortly come to pass (Revelation 1:1). So we should not be at all surprised when we see news like this fulfilling what was written in the Scriptures thousands of years ago. Nor should we be alarmed by it. But it should bring us back to the study of the Scriptures, and encourage us to place our trust more fully in a faithful and wise God. For that is what prophecy is all about (Revelation 19:10). Have your sins been forgiven? Have you put your trust in Jesus Christ for salvation? Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation today (Acts 16:31).
