Dangerous Things, a 'biohacking' company that aspires to augment the human body with various implantable electronic devices, will ship its first do-it-yourself RFID implant kits to customers this month. Dangerous Things was founded by Amal Graafstra, who himself made headlines after having two RFID devices implanted in each hand. With a swipe of his hand, Amal Graafstra is able to open doors, turn light switches on and off, and more. Until now the procedure of implanting an RFID device would have to be carried out by a doctor, but these kits will enable anyone interested in body-modification to try it for themselves. The kits sell for as little as $57, and include an RFID chip, a syringe for inserting it under your skin, alcohol rubs, surgical gloves and a bandage...
Quote: “For those of you who may be unfamiliar, the xNT is an ISO/IEC 14443-A and fully NFC Type 2 compliant NTAG216 RFID chipset encased in a 2×12 mm cylindrical USP grade lead-free Schott 8625 biocompatible glass casing. In plain English, that basically means it’s a tiny capsule designed to be inserted into your body (usually in your hand) that’s outfitted with a special chip that allows you to interact with a wide variety of other NFC-equipped devices by simply waving your hand or entering a room.
It's very interesting what this article states, that the ideal location for the implantation of the RFID chips is in the hand. The VeriChip Corporation were always keen to stress that the implant location for their chip was is in “triceps area between the elbow and the shoulder of the right arm”. Presumably that was to avoid connotations with the Biblical Mark of the Beast. Although secular news sources did admit that the wrist was also being used as an implant location for VeriChip. The Bible states that during the tribulation period, a global identification system will be established which will require all adherents to receive a 'mark' in their right hand or forehead (Revelation 13:16-18).
The Greek word for 'mark' in this verse ('charagma' – χάραγμα) means a “scratch or etching, that is, stamp (as a badge of servitude), or sculptured figure (statue): - graven, mark”. It's also interesting that VeriChip Corporation's medical subdivision is called Xmark. X is the first Greek letter of the word 'charagma', and 'mark' is its equivalent English translation, according to Strong's Concordance.
Of course we do not believe that either the VeriChip, or Amal Graafstra's xNT chip, is the actual Mark of the Beast. The Bible specifically states that the Mark of the Beast system will be introduced by the False Prophet during the tribulation period. But having said that, there is no doubt the technology is now here to fulfil this prophecy. These chips are being injected into the right hand, just like the Bible said the Mark of the Beast would be. Efforts are underway to replace cash with a more 'secure' (traceable) electronic form of payment, and RFID is spearheading that through contactless payment devices. The Bible states that the time will come when no man will be able to buy or sell save he have the Mark of the Beast.
Praise God that as Christians, we have no need to fear of this system. For the Bible states that all those who will receive it, their names were not written in the Lamb's book of life. If you are saved, if you have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, then your name is written in heaven (Luke 10:20) and no power on heaven or earth can remove it. But if you are not yet saved, if you have not yet trusted in Jesus Christ as your Saviour, then heed the warning that God has given to us in the Scriptures. He has revealed future events to us so that when we see them coming to pass, we would know that He is God and that His Word is true.
Have you put your trust in Him? He died for you so that your sins might be forgiven. He is coming back again for all those who have trusted in Him for salvation (John 14:3). Turn away from your sins, and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation today.
