I heard an alarming news report on a radio program that I was listening to yesterday. I quickly launched to my computer and got on the internet in order to dispel the rumor, or prove the facts of the story. I found that what I heard was indeed true.
The following article will show what is on the horizon for all of us. It is important to know what is going on in order be able to make decisions for ourselves and our families. We must stand steadfast and unmovable in our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word, which is to rule over our every decision and our lives.
In the book of Revelation, God gives us a clear and detailed account of the horrors and desolation which will come upon our planet. This is the Great Tribulation that Jesus spoke of in Matthew chapter 24.
There are always those who will deny the validity of this by way of questioning why a loving God would allow such judgment to come. They don’t seem to understand that God is a Holy and Righteous Judge as well as a Loving Heavenly Father.
In Romans 3:23, the Bible states that, “All have sinned, and come short (inferior, to fall short, be deficient or come behind, destitute, lack, suffer need, want or be the worse) of the glory (dignity, glory (ious), honor, praise and worship) of God.”
Yes, God created man in his image, and from the beginning, man has chosen the way of wickedness and rebellion against his Creator.
BUT…God in his love, “For God so loved the world, that HE GAVE his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 Here is God’s provision, to believe on the Son of God, Jesus Christ. This is the only way for man to be accepted and received by God.
The eternal future of man is determined by whether he will believe and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of his/her life, or not.
For those who reject Christ, it is horrible even to imagine the judgment that will befall them. The Bible speaks of the time of the end when judgment will come to the human race.
In the Great Tribulation, Satan will rise up and declare himself to be Christ. Here is the grand delusion of Lucifer. From the time he rebelled against God and was cast out of heaven and declared to be the enemy of God, Satan has been scheming and dreaming of a day where all of God’s creation will rise up and worship him.
The Bible clearly prophecies that when the Anti-Christ is revealed, “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Revelation 13:8
The scriptures go on to say that this beast will do great wonders; he will make fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men.
In Revelation 13: 14, “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live."
In verse 15, “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
How will he know who will be a faithful and loyal worshiper of him? He will know by their receiving of a special mark, a mark in which the Bible declares is the name of the beast and the number of his name.
Those who refuse, will not be able to buy or sell, the freedom to work and provide for their families will be taken away. And when that doesn’t work, well, you will surely die.
Revelation 13:16-18, “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: (17) 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. (18) Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.”
During the Great Tribulation, ALL men will receive a mark in their right hands or their foreheads.
The technology is here and companies such as VeriChip is making great strides in the development of a chip to be implanted in human hosts.
I believe the trial period for such a thing will take place in the threat of the so-called “Pandemic” H1N1 or Swine Flu.
The WorldNet Daily put out a story that states:
“A Florida-based company that boasts selling the world's first and only federally approved radio microchip for implanting in humans is now turning its development branch toward "emergency preparedness," hoping to produce an implant that can automatically detect in its host's bloodstream the presence of swine flu or other viruses deemed a "bio-threat."”
It goes on to say, “But VeriChip has also turned its attention to other uses for the technology, including microchips that be used to tag and log human remains after a disaster and implants the company hopes will be able to warn if their host is infected with the H1N1 swine flu virus, the H5N1 bird flu virus or other pandemic agents deemed to be a "bio-threat."”
The ultimate goal for the companies involved is to develop an implant that can also diagnose which virus is infecting the host.
Is it true? You can visit the VeriChip website and read it for yourself:
VeriChip Corporation Granted Exclusive License to Patents Used in Virus Triage Detection System for H1N1 Virus
Also, the following pdf file is a paper which explains exactly what their intentions are:
An Integrated Sensor System for the Detection of BIO-Threats from Pandemics to Emerging Diseases to Bioterrorism
Amazing, isn’t it?
Time is short, and both you and I know many people who have not yet come to the saving knowledge of the Lord, Jesus Christ. Let us pray with all earnestness for their souls and witness to those whom God has brought into our lives of the faith and hope we have found through Jesus Christ.
It is the goodness of God that brings a man to repentance.
To the unbeliever, God loves you so much so that he gave His Son to take the responsibility and the guilt of your sin on the cross where He died, that He could wash you and cleanse you the guilt and shame of sin forever.
For those who think they will ride out the storm and wait until God’s judgments come upon earth, if you don’t repent of your sin now by hearing of the goodness of God, you surely won’t repent out of fear and judgment.
Now is the time of salvation. Don’t put off the hope and happiness of heaven. Come to the Lord Jesus Christ, he has a plan and a future awaiting you.
