The Hal Lindsey Report
Two researchers associated with the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign and Northwestern University reported a startling invention in a recent issue of the journal, "Science." They announced the development of a "patch" which is thinner than a human hair. It feels as "soft as human skin" and can draw power from light or ambient electromagnetic radiation. It adheres to the skin without glue or sticky material. It is practically weightless and, because of its incredible nanotechnology, can be used to monitor brain, heart, and muscle tissue activity. When placed on the throat, it allows the wearer to operate voice-activated devices.
Coincidentally, the device, which they say "blurs the distinction between electronics and biology," can also be used to digitize the wearer's identity and banking records, thus making it possible to conduct financial transactions by simply scanning the easily applied electronic "tattoo."
Now, I'm not saying that this is the "mark of the Beast" described in Revelation 13:16-18, but there's no denying that it is an eye-popping example of how technology is racing toward providing the coming Antichrist with the ability to control the financial transactions of every person in the world.
But technology alone won't be sufficient to cause most of the world to accept his leadership and even worship him as god. It will take massive calamities and economic crises to convince the nations of the world to submit themselves to his rule. And, frankly, when I look at what's happening in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and even here in America, that doesn't require a huge leap of imagination!
