Rev. 17:15 Matthew 16:1-3 The Pharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Jesus, they asked Him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 But He replied to them, When it is evening, you say, It will be fair weather, for the sky is red. 3

And in the morning, There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening. Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times? 1 A Global Currency "I think the dollar is now under question and I think the system will need to be reformed, so that

Wisconsin Company to Implant Microchips In Employees Josh Rosenthal of 5 Eyewitness ABC News - July 24, 2017

A Wisconsin company is about to become the first in the U.S. to offer microchip implants to its employees. Yes, you read that right. Microchip implants. It's the next thing that's inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it, Three Square Market Chief Executive Officer Todd Westby said. The company designs software for break room markets that are commonly found in office complexes. Just as people are able to purchase items at the market using phones, Westby wants to do the same

thing using a microchip implanted inside a person's hand. We'll come up, scan the item, he explained, while . . .

Revelation 13:16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on [epi] their right hand or on [epi] their forehead. Mark of the Beast Technology is Not What You Think A new candidate has arrived, and one that is garnering praise and attention worldwide as the next innovative

breakthrough. More noticeably, hardly anyone is even talking about its potential as the mark of Revelation 13. These devices are known as electronic tattoos. Made out of flexible silicon and rubber, the tattoo is applied in a similar way as a temporary tattoo, and is completely non-invasive and pain free. People around the world, Christians included, are so focused on its application as a biomedical savior that can handle everything from giving you a weather report, to monitoring and adjusting blood sugar levels, and just about any other practical function for a modern world . . .
