There has been a progression that seems to desensitize people to accepting marks in order to live life. Social Security numbers were once touted as an “antichrist” measure. Electronic money exchange through credit and debit cards also comes to mind. RFID implant chips are another. These advancements in technology desensitize people to the concept of Revelation 13’s “Beast” government, specifically verses 16-17, “And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Enter Chaotic Moon and high tech tattoos.
Austin, Texas, technology company, Chaotic Moon, has developed a “tech tattoo” that transmits bio data and can eventually be used to do commerce. In an article posted on Chaotic Moon’s website, the technology is explained: “On the tattoo, an ATiny85 microcontroller stores and receives data from temperature sensors via electroconductive paint. There’s also room on there for an ambient light sensor that illuminates LEDs when it’s dark….The tech tattoos could be used to monitor a child’s vitals after a surgery, or provide a less public (or more, if you choose) display of fitness tracking…Tech Tats could also theoretically be used to authorize payments in a similar fashion to Apple Pay.”
The financial function would be implemented by securely storing data on a skin mounted micro controller and transferring the data when the user specifies based on a gesture or fingerprint on a tap to pay style device. The website said, “Instead of tapping your phone on a pay terminal, you’d gesture and payment info would be handed off to the terminal from the controller. This is different from the usual PIN or fingerprint payment authorization you’d use via Apple Pay.” Given the popularity of tattoos among young people in America and around the world, this technology could represent a major leap in the identification, monitoring and controlling of people–certainly those who have no reservations about evil intent.
The taking of the mark of the beast will be a conscious decision on the part of the person. We know this by Revelation 20:4, which says, “And I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” Notwithstanding, these decisions can be made a whole lot easier if society is desensitized to the method. Leviticus 19:28 says, “You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks upon you: I am the LORD.” Herein, the Lord was admonishing his people to not become like the cult idol worshipers of the time.Interesting that Chaotic Moon encourages people reading its website to “Join the cult.”
