This bio-chip and the Mark of the Beast

#1

Post by Facdx » Sun Jun 15, 2008 11:16 am

I recently found this website http://www.av1611.org/666/biochip.html that talks about the Mark of the Beast, and as I was reading, it seems to give out valid points that indicate that this bio-chip is not the mark of the beast that has everybody so worried. But what I would like to know is your opinions on this issue cause it seems that more people are believing that this chip is the Mark of the Beast rather than not.

I lean preterist in my eschatological beliefs, but I am still nonetheless concerned about the possibility of me being wrong, and barring that, the possibility for abuse by corrupt governments such as the US, European Union, or United Nations.

Also, I don't put a whole lot of stock in what av1611.org says on most moral/social issues.

I am undecided on whether a biochip would be the actual Mark of the Beast (I too lean towards preterism), but I'm disinclined to get one even if it isn't, simply because it has such potential to be abused by corrupt people in power.
God's in his Heaven, all's right with the world.

There are other things to look for to assist in what may be the mark of the beast.

Other events will be happening also, i.e the Temple will be rebuilt, there will be PEACE between all nations including Israel, there will be one leader over there in the middle East, such and so forth.

Now if a central leader requires a bio chip to be used for commerce / basic living then it will put up a red flag in my head. It may be or may not be, just something to look out for and be aware of.

Someone in the leadership role may require a tattoo for Identification or a brand who knows what exactly it will be, I do think it would be a requirement for people in society to have to exist and live a comfortable life.

Just my 2 cents.

God Bless

Assuming a dispensationalist perspective, I would probably feel much closer to the end times living in the early 1940s than I would living today.

Nah, you wouldn't, because, from a dispensationalist perspective, you need a nation-state of Israel. Maybe in the early 50's, but not 40's. ;)

And that, brothers and sisters, is the kind of foolishness you get people who insist on denying biblical theism. A good illustration of any as the length people will go to avoid acknowledging basic truths.

Then you haven't been paying much attention to what is happening around the world lately, have you? With Russia parking nuclear subs and bombers in the North Pole, re-directing their missle defence systems toward the "eastern part of Europe", how Putin has managed to still stay in power even as Prime Minister, Chavez buying 2 billion in military hardware from Russia not too long ago, I don't need to mention anything more about Iran calling for the destruction of Israel.

Jesus condemed the Pharasees for not paying attention to the signs of the first coming of the Messiah, and I believe that it applies to us also if we don't recognize the signs of His second coming.
Jesus died for ALL. End of story.
