One in four Germans would be happy to have a microchip implanted in their body if they derived concrete benefits from it. Personal RFID is coming; this is how the Antichrist will control buying and selling to only those who have sworn allegiance to him...
Revelation 13:16-17 says, "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name" (NKJ).
There will be strong pressure to swear allegiance to the Antichrist during the Tribulation. Indeed, "he was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed" (Revelation 13:15).
I'm glad I have a ticket off this train before it reaches Tribulation Station.
