The Independent reports that Swedish workers were implanted with microchips– the size of one grain of rice– to replace cash cards and ID passes.
Microchips are injected in between the thumb and index figure and injected with a syringe.
The Associated Press reports:
“What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish startup hub Epicenter. The company offers to implant its workers and startup members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers, or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand.”
The injections have become so popular that workers at Epicenter hold parties for those willing to get implanted.
Patrick Mesterton, co-founder and CEO of Epicenter, says the microchip basically “replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.”
The human microchip is similar to the one used for pets. Except these chips show how often an employee comes to work or what they buy at a store.
Epicenter oversees more than 100 companies and roughly 2,000 employees. It began implanting some employees with microchips four years ago, in January 2015.
“The data that you could possibly get from a chip that is embedded in your body is a lot different from the data that you can get from a smartphone,” Ben Libberton, a microbiologist at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute told the AP. “Conceptually you could get data about your health, you could get data about your whereabouts, how often you’re working, how long you’re working if you’re taking toilet breaks, and things like that.”
Microchips throw privacy out the window. Imagine all of the data collected and stored in your hand– what happens to it, who uses it, for what, and why– is completely out of the control of the user. People who willingly become chipped are quite literally giving their lives away.
“The prophet of the beast (Antichrist) causes all 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.” Revelation 13:16-17
“And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast (Antichrist) and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.” Revelation 14:9
The consequences of taking the mark of the beast are dreadful. Repent of your rebellion against God and accept Jesus’ offer of salvation made possible by His sacrifice on your behalf. Be baptised as a witness of your dying to self and rising to new life in Christ. You have been born again by the Holy Spirit. He will enable you to live the Christian life, reject the mark of the beast, and face whatever persecution comes your way.
