"Rev.13  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 of the Beast (MOB) remains key passage from book of Revelation and Humanity always seems on the lookout for the unholy mark. A 2011 article, "The Mark of the Beast '666'," advises reader clearly on consequences of accepting it. We are all familiar with the UPC code. UPC bar-codes are on nearly every product, but you may not be aware bar-codes operate on a "666" system (picture). Products we buy contain a "666" on the bar-code. The UPC code may be a forerunner of the MOB? Researchers suspect UPC tech could be used on implantable RFIDs that we may be forced to accept. It only makes sense to employ technology in place for decades, moving it forward into the digital era, where "you are the product". Would acronym be modified, at the point, for its human application to stand for "Universal Person Code"?
The Worldtruth.tv article suggests how public will be persuaded to accept mark:
"Chipping kids to prevent kidnappings, chipping the elderly to guard against Alzheimer's, chipping diabetics, chipping people with allergies, chipping people to prevent medical mistakes...and the list goes on and on. It all sounds good, it all sounds so right - using technology to better our lives. But
it's not good, and it's not right. What it is, is the Mark of the Beast as foretold by God."
Yes, it sounds so reasonable to accept it, but article warns:
"...the day is coming where you will be forced to have a chip put inside your body. When that day comes, you will know who the Antichrist is because he will be the one in power over the whole world. Accepting that chip will mean you side with the Antrichrist, and against God. Accepting the chip will doom your soul to Hell forever. Whatever you do, do not ever let anyone put a chip inside your body. It will be better to side with God and die at the Antichrist's hand then to accept the chip and spend eternity in Hell."
"Note: If the implantable RFID chip does turn out to the the Mark of the Beast, which seems highly
likely, it will not be until the actual reign of the Antichrist that it will have it's power and significance.
The Bible is quite clear that receiving the Mark, during the Tribulation, is completely and obviously
tied to the worship of the antichrist. No one will take the mark by accident. You will be asked to
swear allegiance to the antichrist as an act of worship. Anyone receiving the mark during the time
of the Great Tribualtion will know exactly why they are getting it. It will be beacuse they will be
acknowledging, falsely, the antichrist as God."
The conclusion reached in article, contains following advice:
"Now you know what the mark of the beast is, and how society is rushing headlong into it's date
with the antichrist. If the day comes when you are asked to choose whether or not you will be
implanted with a chip, you know what your answer should be. No. This is not a game, and it is not
some science-fiction story. The mark of the beast is real. The mark of the beast is happening. The mark of the beast is fulfillment of bible prophecy, and cannot be stopped. But there is one thing you can do..."
