Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who
teach will be judged with greater strictness. James 3:1

Preparations for the "Mark of the Beast"

The Antichrist will have total control over the purchase and sale of all goods:

"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 their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six." Revelation 13:16-18

Studies reveal that less than 5% of the total money in our society exists as paper currency or coins. In other words, America is presently 95% cashless! Various credit card companies are testing smart cards for financial transactions. The embedded computer chip, the size of a dime, can contain as much information as 30 complete sets of the Encyclopedia Britannica, including your finger, hand, voice, retinal, or vein prints.

According to the May 19, 1997 edition of Business Week, a United States patient was issued to Interval Research Corporation, stated by a group that includes Microsoft Corporation co-founder Paul Allen. The patient was issued for a device that is a small liquid-crystal display implanted beneath a layer of skin on the wrist close enough to the surface to be visible. The device would contain a control chip and small battery charged by holding the wrist near an external charger.

Racom Systems, Inc., a company headquartered in Denver, Colorado, a pioneer in the development of contactless smart card technology announced on September 22, 1997 the availability of the first of a new generation of affordable smart card systems that offer secure transactions in both contact and contactless operation.

For a contactless transaction, the card is powered remotely and communicates via a radio signal from the RXR-1500 contactless controller. The entire transaction including mutual authentication, encryption/ decryption of transmitted messages and purse or file update is accomplished in less than 100 milliseconds (1/10 of a second) resulting in true "walk and wave" operation.
