January 1st ushered in a whole new era for governance. India stepped out of “normal” and ventured into an entirely new idea for paying their extremely poor. This new idea which was put into action upon arrival of 2013 makes the handling of money obsolete.
This controversial paying out of billions of dollars of social welfare money directly into accounts eliminates fraud. Each recipient has to validate his or her account through biometric data of either a retinal scan or fingerprints. This system involves no cards, no papers, only a mark which in this program is already part of your body.
“Finance Minister P. Chidambaram has described the venture as 'nothing less than magical,' but critics accuse the government of hastily pushing through a complex program in a country where millions don't have access to electricity or paved roads, let alone neighborhood banks,” reported Fox News.
So, what is the missing link for these folks? Could the “RFID-Chip” be what they need to complete this system?
This is a system not unlike the “mark-of-the-beast” system spoken of in the Bible where you cannot buy or sell unless you take the mark. We know by reading Revelation 13:16-17, “And he causeth 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 hath the mark, or the name of the beast or the number of his name,” that the false prophet is going to make everyone take the mark when the tribulation is well under way, most likely at the mid-point.
If the real “mark-of-the-beast” is not to be implemented until mid-tribulation, which is after the seven year peace agreement with Israel by the Anti-Christ, then the mark itself has not been implemented yet. However, the system for the mark is being developed and implemented as we can see in India.
When you think of the horrible events of the tribulation in Revelation you get the sense that the world is in total chaos by the time the false prophet shows up on the scene and requires a mark to live. So, keeping this in mind you can imagine the world in a similar situation as India. Internet services could be out as well as electricity. If everyone has a chip, this solves the entire problem.
Even in the most remote areas, a chip will be accessible via battery powered scanners etc. Who has this technology and is prepared to implement it? The United States of course. In President Barack Obama's “Obamacare” there is a measure that requires everyone to be chipped by as early as March of 2013 or whenever those in charge deem it appropriate. One of the most popular places they want to place the chip is under the skin on your hand between your thumb and first finger.
This “RFID” chip is an actual electronic device that houses all of your personal information that the government deems necessary, and it works independently of everything else but can and will be accessed and incorporated into a national database system. This removes the need for each individual to have a computer or access to one; all they need is for someone “in charge” to be able to keep the database working. The chip can be scanned from anywhere in the world via satellites. Problem solved.
In the Obamacare plan, the chip is used to house all of a person's medical information and I.D. information. It could be easily transformed into a complete system that houses your bank accounts, allowing access. There are already debit cards and checks, which give a person access to their accounts in the United States and around the world, not to mention the ease with which one can tap into ones money via a few numbers punched into a web page.
Bolsa Familia is a program that was implemented in Brazil in 2006 which used a “card” to give their impoverished instant access to their welfare money. Europe incorporated a common currency called the Euro dollar which made buying and selling very convenient for them.
We have seen different systems be implemented around the world, but none quite as impressive as this latest one in India. When you think about what it will take to control all money around the world, the Anti-Christ needs a system as sophisticated as this. If it can work in India, it will be able to work during the difficult times prophesied to come in the tribulation.
Does a system like this offer benefits for the world we live in? Part two of this series will go deeper into this issue.
