It now looks like we are living in the Matrix:
“Imagine showing your COVID-19 passport with just a flash of your arm,” the video says at the beginning, showing a person scanning their arm with a smartphone.
According to a viral video, the “Epicenter” company invented microchip technology that could be used as a passport for COVID-19 vaccines.
Now, this is not exactly new: in the summer of 2017, Three Square Market (also known as 32M), a Wisconsin-based technology company, announced that it was implanting microchips under the skin of its employees. A small chip the size of a grain of rice was implanted between the index finger and thumb of at least 50 of the company’s 80 employees when the process was voluntary. The company held a “chip party” in which the $300 implants were presented to participating employees.
For employees at Three Square Market, the microchip provided workplace convenience. They no longer have to keep up with ID badges or credit cards, luc.edu reported. To log in to the company’s computer, users simply wave their hands across a sensor in the company’s building. They can also buy snacks from the vending machine if they have provided their credit card number.
Not to be outdone, a viral video describes Epicenter’s (a Swedish startup company) invention as a possible way to carry around a COVID-19 vaccine passport under the skin.
Microchipping humans isn’t new, especially in the healthcare sector. An identification chip implanted under the skin that will be used for “medical purposes” (and there’s the first domino to fall) was approved for sale by the FDA in 2004 by Florida-based Applied Digital Solutions. From EMTs to doctors, medical personnel would be able to scan the chip’s 16-digit number.
But there IS some good news: Norman Ford, VP for Compliance Solutions at Skillsoft, certainly believes that microchip implants have the potential for good. “Imagine all of your personal and financial information/credit cards being kept on your chip,” Ford told me. “With a wave of your hand, you can make a safe and secure purchase, verify your identity, or even monitor your health.”
When children or aging parents are implanted with GPS locaters, they can always be found if they wander off. We would have to presume that the Gum’Ment might have the exact reasoning. “These wonderful possibilities are what will advance this technology.“
Additionally, Microchips Biotech is working on an implant that can store and release medication on a predetermined schedule. The process was tested on a group of women with osteoporosis, and the study revealed that the absorption levels between the microchipped group and the women taking medications on a daily basis were the same — in fact, the dosing schedules among the microchipped group were more consistent.
Dr. William Fissell, a nephrologist at Vanderbilt University, has been developing an artificial kidney that includes microchips and living kidney cells and can eliminate the need for dialysis. In addition to a $6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, the FDA has approved fast-tracking of the project.
Epicenter’s Chief Disruption Officer Hannes Sjöblad explains:” Implants are a very versatile technology that can be used for many different things-right now it is very convenient to have a COVID passport always accessible on your implant.“
In the video, the startup company explains that the microchip utilizes preexisting technology to employ “near-field communication” (NFC) and send data wirelessly to any compatible device. Data receivers such as smartphones are listed as examples.
Approximately the size of a rice grain, microchips can be inserted under the skin, either under the arm or between the thumb and pointer finger, according to Sjöblad during his appearance on a Tech2025 Webinar. In the future, NFC-compatible devices will be able to use the chip to store vaccine passport data after it has been implanted.
As per Tech2025, such chips are designed to replace key fobs, identification cards, and business cards. People would be able to store data, such as passports for airports and medical records, on their chips.
For less than $100, the procedure is reportedly “completely reversible.”
“The human body is the next big platform. We are updating our bodies with technology on a large scale already with wearables. But all of the wearables we wear today will be implantable in our bodies in five to 10 years,” Sjöblad says, according to Tech2025.
It has been predicted by tech and business leaders that up to half of Americans will be “chipped” by the year 2025, yet Tech2025 admits there is no guarantee due to pushback on implants from lawmakers, advocacy groups, and the public, which likely makes such a prediction more of a dream than reality.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if, within 10 years, 50% of Americans have some type of implant, because at the end of the day an implant can reduce the size of your wallet or whatever you carry in your purse by about 30 or 40 percent,” said American presidential candidate Zoltan Istvan (Transhumanist political party) in an interview with Sputnik News.
He reportedly started organizing “transplant parties” for his employees in 2014, where they would get chips embedded in themselves in a fun, social setting. I am presuming that alcohol-or maybe black tar heroin-was involved.
Three Square Market (32M), a Wisconsin-based tech company, became in August of 2017 the first in the country to offer “free” microchip implants to its employees. The chips allowed employees to access locked rooms and buy food and drinks at the break room.
Wrkets have steadily replaced vending machines. As a leader in micro market technology, it is important that 32M continues leading the way with advancements such as chip implants” says Todd Westby, the CEO of Three Square Market.
Epicenter’s chips are reportedly not for sale yet, South China Morning Post says in its video.
Both Christians and non-Christians have gone berserk on the web, decrying the arrival of the end times. Those who accept it are said to be selling their souls to the devil, as this is called the “mark of the beast.”
So, here are two questions:
1) Is this the mark of the beast?
2) Is this preparing the world for the end times?
Answers: No and Yes
There is no mark of the beast on this microchip. Yet, anyway. Two reasons are evident to those who choose a normal interpretation of the Bible (the plain, literal, natural sense of the text).
- This is being offered by one company to its employees. The mark of the beast will be mandated, worldwide, by the one-world government (Revelation 13:16-17).
- The mark of the beast will not come into play until after the midpoint of the future Tribulation, a period of seven years of God’s judgment on this world. Before this begins, the Church must be taken to Heaven with Jesus (1 Thessalonians 1:10; 4:13-18; 5:1-9; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-8).
Since we are not in the Tribulation as far as we know, there is no one-world government being lead by a man who can do “all kinds of miracles and signs and wonders” (2 Thessalonians 2:9), and this is not being mandated for everyone on Earth (again, not yet), we can be sure that this is not currently the mark of the beast, and it would seem to be unlikely that it would have an effect on a person’s salvation if they choose to accept it.
But it SHOULD be pointed out that any insurrection or takeover typically takes time. And this certainly seems to be the direction that this is headed. My money is that the starting gun has just gone off.
