666 and RFID chips

This is from Alexander Pope’s poem An Essay in Criticism.

A little learning is a dangerous thing;
Drink deep or taste not the Pierian spring.
There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely sobers us again.

(In Greek mythology the Pierian spring was a fountain which was sacred to the Muses and imparted learning to anyone who drank from it.)

There are times when having just a little learning about what the Bible says can be a dangerous thing.

Most people have heard of the mark of the beast and they know that it is associated with the number 666 but don’t know anything else about it. One result is that many people are afraid they will take the mark without meaning to and be eternally condemned as a result. Here are two examples.

The first is from a news story by UPI.

A Kentucky high school student athlete declined to participate in her team’s cross-country race after she was assigned the number 666, saying it would have gone against her religious beliefs.

The number 666 is often associated with the biblical “mark of the beast.”

The second is a post on a Christian forum.

Hey guys so I’m 17 and after high school I would like to join the military (AIR FORCE!!!) but I’ve read online they might start RFIDing soldiers. I’m worried if I do enlist I will be forced to get the chip and if it turns out to be the mark of the beast…well I’m done for I guess. So can someone tell me about this? Are they really going to do this? If so is the RFID chip the actual mark of the beast? I would appreciate any help I can get guys.

Are their fears justified? The best way to answer this question is to look at what the Bible actually says about the mark of the beast. First the beast is introduced.

And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads. And the beast that I saw was like a leopard; its feet were like a bear’s, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority.

One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast. And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?”
Revelation 13:1-4 ESV

The beast is the man who is also known as the Antichrist. He will receive power and authority from the dragon, Satan, and will become an object of worship for the whole world.

And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven. Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them.

And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation, and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain. If anyone has an ear, let him hear:

If anyone is to be taken captive,
to captivity he goes;
if anyone is to be slain with the sword,
with the sword must he be slain.

Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.
Revelation 13:5-10 ESV

Then a second beast is introduced.

Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed.

It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people, and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived.

And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.
Revelation 13:11-15 ESV

Finally everyone on the earth is required to take the mark.

[ex/] Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.

This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.
Revelation 13:16-18 ESV

The mark of the beast will be given at a time when the beast is ruling the earth and is already requiring that he be worshipped. An order will be issued requiring everyone to take the mark. There will be laws in effect that forbid anyone without the mark to buy or sell. None of those conditions exist today so it isn’t possible for anyone to receive the mark now.

The number 666 will be associated in some way with the beast but now it is just a number like any other. It is simply one more than 665 and one less than 667. It might not even be the number of the beast. There are some manuscripts of Revelation that have the number 616 instead.

It is possible that taking the mark may include implanting an RFID chip as a means of identification but if that is true the chip itself won’t be the mark; it will only be a tool used to implement it. An RFID chip is simply a device that can be used for either good or evil purposes. Perhaps the Antichrist will use it for evil; that shouldn’t keep others from using it for good.

Sometimes having only a little knowledge can be dangerous; the way to remove this danger is to acquire more knowledge. If you are afraid you might accidentally take the mark the best way to overcome your fear is to study Bible prophecy to learn more about what will happen in the future.

Here are two good sites that can help you:

I agree wholeheartedly.
The whole point of the "mark" is that it is a sign of loyalty to the Beast, which is why God rejects the people who take it.
Anything that a man takes accidentally, without knowing it, is no genuine sign of loyalty.

I think you may be reacting to the title rather than the OP.
Most threads on this subject are arguing FOR the RFID chip being the mark of the Beast.
This one is arguing against.

1 John 4
3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

The antichrist is already here and has been for at least 2,000 years now, so obviously his mark has been instituted already and Revelation has already taken place.

In my opinion, the antichrist is Jesus. Not the Jesus in the red words, but the one who supposedly died for our sins, performed miracles, and rose from the dead.

The book of Revelation is talking about Rome being the dragon with 7 heads because it has 7 hills that it sits on, and the Jesus they created with the sin sacrifice and such is the beast that had a mortal wound but was healed and who the world follows in wonder. The dragon (Rome) gave the beast (Jesus) its authority.

The mark of the beast is that of man, Jesus, and that mark is faith in his sin sacrifice. Christianity denies that Jesus is from God because they promote a false god and a false Jesus.

Topics are often rediscovered, rehashed and brought back up more than dozens of times. It is perfectly acceptable as new members are possibly unfamiliar with this topic and if they wish to probe deeper can do so on a search.

The go elsewhere where there is a fresh, unbeaten horse that is up to your standards. Don't trouble yourself.

I have seen this viewpoint before, and i think it makes better, sense. The RFID is only a tool for the mark of the beast. That's what i think is meant by everyone being required to worship the beast, they must get an RFID to continue to do daily things in life.

Who is getting chipped, again?

Just curious. I mean.. I know it's all made up bollocks coming from religion, and anyone who claims god wont like them if they embrace technology should go live in a cave and eat mud, but just not sure who is getting chipped.

Or is this one of those "Secret chips in your cornflakes" deals?

Or the next vaccine? I heard they are capable of sticking 2mm chips in you these days. Well I read that in the 80s when the horse was still a foal.

Hmm, my gps capable wifi location aware tablet might be a chip. the nwo will know where I am while I am on my way to do devious and sinister things like inspect houses.. and tell old ladies off for having 2 cats.

oh my.

hail satan.. I mean, dear god...
