Jerusalem holy site closure 'declaration of war' - Abbas

Prophecy Sign:  Middle-East war over Jerusalem and the Temple Mount

Could the current fight over the status of the Temple Mount be the event that sparks another Israel/Arab war, (perhaps the Psalm 83 battle)?  It seems very likely that there will be another major Middle-East war which will set the stage for the implementation of the Antichrist brokered false seven peace covenant which will also allow for the construction of the third Jewish Temple.  

It's hard to foresee any other series of events that would allow for both a Middle-East peace agreement and a Jewish Temple being built on the Temple mount, (alongside the current Muslim shrines), given the vitriolic hatred of the Muslim/Arabs towards the Jews. 

I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. Zechariah 14:2 NIV

Jerusalem holy site closure 'declaration of war' - Abbas
A spokesman for Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has described the closure of a disputed Jerusalem holy site as a "declaration of war". The move came amid tension and violence after the shooting of a Jewish activist. Israel's PM urged calm, saying Mr Abbas was stoking unrest. The holy site will reopen on Friday, Israel's economy minister says. Yehuda Glick, a campaigner for greater Jewish prayer rights at the Temple Mount/al-Haram al-Sharif, was wounded. Israeli police later killed a Palestinian suspected of shooting him. Moataz Hejazi, 32, was shot after opening fire when police surrounded his home. Rabbi Glick is a well-known US-born campaigner for the right of Jews to pray at the site, which is currently prohibited.

Abbas's Fatah Calls for 'Day of Rage' Terrorism
Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction, held by some as a "moderate" alternative to Hamas, has called for a "day of rage" on Friday through the official PA news source Wafa. "Fatah calls to its fighters and to the masses of the Palestinian people to aid the Al-Aqsa Mosque and occupied Jerusalem," said Fatah in the statement which was translated by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW). In fact, Fatah's proclamation of terror targeted not only the capital but also terrorists "throughout the homeland and in countries which are home to refugees, to express the Palestinian people's opposition to any attack on the holy places and foremost among them the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

Abbas Calls to Stop Jews Visiting Temple Mount Using 'All Means'
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas on Friday encouraged Islamists to continue efforts aimed at preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, calling on Palestinian Arabs to prevent "settlers" from entering the site using "all means" necessary. His comments came days after Israeli police once again clashed with Muslim extremists protesters violently demonstrating against Jews visiting the Temple Mount, which is Judaism's holiest site and also the location of the Islamic Al Aqsa complex.

Jordan Accuses Israel of 'State Terrorism' over Temple Mount Ban
Jordan on Thursday accused Israel of "state terrorism" after it closed Jerusalem's Temple Mount to Muslim and Jewish visitors alike, following the attempted assassination of a prominent Jewish rights activist. Israel said its closure of the site - the holiest in Judaism and also home to the Al Aqsa mosque compound - was temporary and aimed at calming tempers as tensions continue to simmer after the prime suspect in the shooting of Rabbi Yehuda Glick died in a shootout with police.Jordan's Islamic affairs minister, Hayel Daoud, denounced the Jewish state for "closing the gates of Al-Aqsa mosque and preventing the faithful from entering", state news agency Petra reported.

How the Jewish state is being demonized

Prophecy Sign:  Israel will be one its own during the coming Tribulation period

Right on time, the entire world is shifting from the support of Israel to the delegitimization of the Jewish state.  We say right on time, because if we truly are at the end of this dispensation and the coming Tribulation is at the door, then according to bible prophecy we should expect the world to be increasing in its hatred of the Jews and the state of Israel.  That will include the nations that presently consider themselves allies of Israel.

In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. Joel 3:1-2 NIV

How the Jewish state is being demonized
Over the last few decades, intellectuals of the Left, academics, the UN, human rights organizations, some mainstream Protestant churches and the media have grown not just unsympathetic but, in many cases, hostile toward Israel and Israelis. At the same time, they have been indulgent of Israel’s enemies, Islamist terrorists included. An article over the weekend in the International Herald Tribune noted that “Britain’s center-left Labour Party often sympathizes instinctively with the Palestinian cause.” Hamas — which claimed responsibility for the murders of the woman and child in Jerusalem last week — defines the Palestinian cause as the extermination of Israel and the murder of Jews. (It’s in the Hamas Charter. Look it up.)

Team Obama's Pointless Attack on Israel
What does the Obama administration hope to accomplish by trashing Israel in the press? This is the most important question after an apparently coordinated wave of anonymous quotes welled up in Tuesday’s press. Relations with Israel have steadily worsened over the course of Obama’s presidency, and little of what was said was out of step with some views being expressed in broader policy circles. But why say it, and why now?

US anger at Netanyahu said ‘red-hot’ as ties hit new low
American anger at the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “red hot” and the relationship between Israel and the US is now in a “full-blown crisis,” The Atlantic reported Tuesday. The piece, by Jeffrey Goldberg, observed the extraordinarily harsh tone now used in increasingly regular and open fashion by Obama administration officials in reference to Jerusalem leaders, chiefly among them Netanyahu. One senior administration official was quoted by the publication as calling the Israeli prime minister “a chicken###t,” referring to what he saw as the premier’s pandering to his political base for fear of electoral defeat, his refusal to make any diplomatic headway with the Palestinians and moderate Arab states, and his fear of initiating wars. 

Netanyahu: I'm being attacked because of my determination to defend Israel's interests
In his first public remarks since being branded "chicken###t" by an Obama administration official, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that he "cares for every citizen and soldier" and that he would withstand pressure and forgo "applause on lawns" that come with territorial concessions. "I am being attacked because I am willing to defend the State of Israel," Netanyahu said on the Knesset podium during a special session honoring the memory of assassinated tourism minister Rehavam Ze'evi.

Life under Obama sucks. And these numbers prove it

Prophecy Sign:  Government corruption and economic distress

We at this blog, do not live in America, (Canadians we are...eh?), so we can't say first hand what things have been like under President Barack Obama.  However much anecdotal evidence, (like the article below), quite clearly says...NOT GOOD, and not about to get much better.  The two bible passages below, while not necessarily prophetic in nature, certainly do a good job describing the style of governance and economic distress that will be common place at the end of days, prior to Christ's return.

Both hands are skilled in doing evil; the ruler demands gifts, the judge accepts bribes,  the powerful dictate what they desire— they all conspire together. Micah 7:3 IV

For he has oppressed the poor and left them destitute; he has seized houses he did not build. Surely he will have no respite from his craving; he cannot save himself by his treasure.  Nothing is left for him to devour; his prosperity will not endure.  In the midst of his plenty, distress will overtake him; the full force of misery will come upon him. Job 20::19-22 NIV

Life under Obama sucks. And these numbers prove it
America is so over Obama. In 2008, the media and a majority of the voters were head-over-heels in love with the man who told them that “yes, we can” overcome war and recession. By 2012, the amour had cooled but they were willing to give four more years to the guy who was – if nothing else – way hotter than Mitt Romney. But now it’s 2014 and the passion is totally gone. Obama is the withholding boyfriend who knows that he’s probably on the way out and is just sending the odd friendly text message from the golf course. If this relationship-breakdown metaphor seems a little strained consider this: Barack Obama is close to having played more rounds of golf since 2009 than Tiger Woods. America would happily kick him to the curb, but he can’t run again in 2016 – so these midterm elections are the chance to send a message of complaint.

Barack Obama was elected in 2008 less on the back of a programme than a personality. He embodied rather than articulated change. As such, his election did mark a revolution in American race relations but it did not represent a serious effort at governmental reform. With the notable – and controversial – exceptions of Obamacare and gay marriage (the latter led entirely by the courts and not the administration), liberals should be asking themselves what Obama has ever done for them. Conservatives will be asking what he’s done to the economy, having over-regulated and over-spent to little obvious advantage.

The Pope’s Embrace Of Evolution Brings Us One Step Closer To A One World Religion

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global false religious system

The new Pope is like a magnet to the world.  He says all the right things that the world wants to hear.  From the "who am I to judge", acceptance of Homosexuals, to his most recent stance regarding God and his creation, (that God does not have a magic wand and requires evolution to achieve his goals).

This endearment to the world and other religious faiths is setting the stage for the creation of the future global one world religious system which will be headed by the future False Prophet.

The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. The name written on her forehead was a mystery: Babylon the great, the mother of prostitutes, and of the abominations of the earth. Revelation 17:4-5 NIV

The Pope’s Embrace Of Evolution Brings Us One Step Closer To A One World Religion
If you wanted to create a religion that almost everyone would love, how would you do it?  Perhaps you would change your faith to make it more appealing to a modern world that is changing at blinding speed.  Perhaps you would indicate that you are willing to become more “mainstream” on hot button issues such as gay rights.  Perhaps you would invite leaders of other religions from all over the planet to come visit you and make it clear that you consider all of those religions to be valid as well.  And all of that “unscientific stuff” about God creating the world in six days and creating mankind out of the dust of the Earth?  Well, all of that is just going to have to be thrown out.  If all of this sounds vaguely familiar to you,  that is because this is exactly what Pope Francis has been doing.

Pope Francis declares evolution and Big Bang theory are real and God isn't 'a magician with a magic wand'
The theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real and God is not “a magician with a magic wand”, Pope Francis has declared. Speaking at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the Pope made comments which experts said put an end to the “pseudo theories” of creationism and intelligent design that some argue were encouraged by his predecessor, Benedict XVI. Francis explained that both scientific theories were not incompatible with the existence of a creator – arguing instead that they “require it”.

5 Places Where World War Three Could Break Out

Prophecy Sign:  Rumors of Wars

Rumors of war are increasing, and as the article below points out, there are five places that could launched a world war three situation. Those include;  The Korean Peninsula, India/Pakistan, Middle-East, Russia/NATO, China/America.

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Matthew 24:6 NIV

5 Places Where World War Three Could Break Out
It seems these days the world is literally on fire. Conflict continues on and off in Ukraine, there are tensions throughout the Asia-Pacific, Ebola is on the rampage, ISIS continues its bloody war of attrition throughout Syria, into Iraq and on and on. Yet, could something even worse be on the horizon—a conflict with more-severe global ramifications?
Some of the predictions below envisage regime collapse that leads to war, while the specter of a terrorist WMD attack has the capacity to turn apocalyptic very quickly. That said, this might just be a phase: state-on-state violence will still be theoretically and practically possible as long as nation-states possess the means to expend blood and treasure.

German Typhoons have intercepted 7 Russian Air Force combat planes over the Baltic Sea today
According to the Latvian military, on Oct. 28, the German Air Force Eurofighter jets on QRA (Quick Reaction Alert) at Amari, Estonia, to provide NATO Baltic Air Policing were scrambled to intercept seven Russian Air Force planes flying in international airspace over the Baltic Sea. The German interceptors identified the Russian planes as a large package, made of attack planes and escort, which included 2x MiG-31 Foxhound, 2x Su-34 Fullback, 1x Su-27 Flanker and 2x Su-24 Fencer jets. Regardless to whether the Russian aircraft were involved in one of the frequent training missions in the Baltics or were commuting to/from the Russian airfield in Kaliningrad oblast, the package on Oct 28 represents one of the largest “formations” intercepted by NATO fighter planes during the last couple of years.

Trending: More college students support post-birth abortion

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing depravity 

How is it members of a society could actually think it justifiable and proper to terminate the life of a child right up to the age of 4 or 5 years?  As with any other depraved concept, the easiest way to achieve this goal is to indoctrinate the youth.  Perhaps by holding courses at a University extolling the virtues of terminating the life of the pre-born.

Wickedness is increasing with reckless abandon in this world of our.  We must be at the time of the end.

Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 24:12-13 NIV

Trending: More college students support post-birth abortion
A trend seen by prolife activists that frequently engage college students on campuses nationwide is the growing acceptance of post-birth abortion, or killing the infant after he or she is born, campus prolife outreach leaders tell The College Fix. Anecdotal evidence by leaders of prolife groups such as Created Equal and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust said in interviews that not only do they see more college students willing to say they support post-birth abortion, but some students even suggest children up to 4 or 5-years-old can also be killed, because they are not yet “self aware.” “We encounter people who think it is morally acceptable to kill babies after birth on a regular basis at almost every campus we visit,” said Mark Harrington, director of Created Equal. “While this viewpoint is still seen as shocking by most people, it is becoming increasingly popular.”

San Francisco’s University of California Launches First Online Abortion Class
The University of California’s San Francisco campus has launched the nation’s first-ever online abortion class, creating both interest and outrage across the nation. “Abortion: Quality Care and Public Health Implications” is a six-week free class being offered by the university through Coursera, and is to be taught by “over twenty faculty from various institutions and multiple disciplines [who] will place abortion within the context of public health and fill in the gaps left by its exclusion from mainstream curricula in health professions.” “Each week’s lectures will incorporate the stories of women who seek abortion in order to better portray abortion significance and rationale,” the course description further outlines. 

So, remember that volcano in Iceland? It's still erupting like crazy

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes and volcanoes in diverse places

As we have pointed out in recent blog entries, the number of large earthquakes above 6.0 in scale has greatly increased over the last decades.  In addition to the rise in earthquakes, there is the increase in active volcanoes, especially along the so called "Ring of Fire".  Some of these volcanoes are massive in scale and would have the ability to make short work of the islands they sit upon.

Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. Isaiah 13:13 NIV

So, remember that volcano in Iceland? It's still erupting like crazy
Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano has now emitted the most lava of any volcano in that geologically active country since at least 1947, and continues with no sign of stopping. The volcano is also emitting clouds of toxic sulfur dioxide gases, which have made it all the way to Europe at times, thanks to northwesterly winds. The eruption is taking place in an old lava field known as Holuhraun, and according to National Geographic, the volcano has now vaulted so much molten rock to the surface that it would fill at least 740 Empire State Buildings. The total area of lava spewed out by the volcano is 64.6 square kilometers as of Oct. 28, which works out to about 25 square miles. According to Nature magazine, the volcano has emitted more sulfur dioxide gases since the eruption began in August than Europe produces in an entire year through industrial activities.

Kobe University study reminds us that Japan could be one volcanic eruption away from annihilation
Feeling a little too chipper today? Here’s something to bring you back to down to earth: According to Kobe University professor Yoshiyuki Tatsumi and his research staff, there is a one-percent chance that a huge, Japanese-civilization-obliterating volcanic eruption will occur sometime within the next 100 years. One percent may not sound like very much, but when you hear the kind of eruption the professor’s research refers to, you’ll understand why even that tiny number is much bigger than we’d like.
Professor Tatsumi’s study warns of the small but distinct possibility of what is known as a Plinian eruption occurring within the next 100 years in Japan. What that basically means is that a volcano will erupt, shooting ash and smoke as high as 18km (11 miles) into the air and spew out a pyroclastic flow (a super hot and very fast-moving mixture of gas and rock) that will engulf vast areas.

Genetic engineering takes steps towards building superhumans

Prophecy Sign:  Increased knowledge - Transhumanism and the Mark of the Beast

Between the genetic revolution and the technological revolution, mankind will soon have the ability to become Transhuman;  Something resembling a human cyborg, (technology), or a human hybrid, (genetics).  We suspect the future 'mark of the Beast' has much to do with the current genetic revolution, and this mark will be Satan's way of corrupting the image of God, (the human genetic code), by inserting his own corruption, (the mark), into the mix.

Is this why the bible makes clear that anyone who takes the Antichrists 'mark', will not be granted any mercy and will suffer full penalty of judgement?  The person taking the future 'mark' will have become unredeemable in the sense that they are no longer fully human.

A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand,  they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. Revelation 14:9-10 NIV

Genetic engineering takes steps towards building superhumans
A paper recently released by Stephen Hsu, a professor of theoretical physics at Michigan State University, asserts that by tweaking our genomes, we could make humans drastically smarter. He explained that by modifying gene variants, human intelligence could be increased to 10 times what it is now. The paper has inspired renewed discussion in the academic community around the issue of genetic modification and how it might be used to give people ‘superhuman’ powers.
Gene editing tools like CRISPR — clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats which take advantage of natural DNA repair machinery to engineer the genome — might mean that scientists are that much closer to giving humans supernatural healing or amplifying the abilities that we already have.

Ebola outbreak: Cases pass 10,000, WHO reports

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, plagues and disease

The Ebola pandemic in Western Africa is at no end as it continues to spread into new cities and nations, (Mali being the newest).  While Ebola has reached into Europe and America, it is by no means at the level of worry as say, the upcoming Flu season will be.  However, that could all change rapidly if one of the strains of Ebola should happen to morph into an airborne strain.

In the meantime, we believe that the articles below should be viewed in the light of warning and awareness, and with the knowledge that bible prophecy does warn us that global pandemics are on the way for the coming Tribulation period.

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NIV

Ebola outbreak: Cases pass 10,000, WHO reports
The number of cases in the Ebola outbreak has exceeded 10,000, with 4,922 deaths, the World Health Organization says in its latest report. Only 27 of the cases have occurred outside the three worst-hit countries, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. Those three countries account for all but 10 of the fatalities. Mali became the latest nation to record a death, a two-year-old girl. More than 40 people known to have come into contact with her have been quarantined. The latest WHO situation report says that Liberia remains the worst affected country, with 2,705 deaths. Sierra Leone has had 1,281 fatalities and there have been 926 in Guinea. Nigeria has recorded eight deaths and there has been one in Mali and one in the United States.

Ebola Spreads to Mali as WHO Races to Contain Outbreak

Ebola can survive on surfaces for almost TWO MONTHS
The number of confirmed Ebola cases passed the 10,000 mark over the weekend, despite efforts to curb its spread. And while the disease typically dies on surfaces within hours, research has discovered it can survive for more than seven weeks under certain conditions. During tests, the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) found that the Zaire strain will live on samples stored on glass at low temperatures for as long as 50 days.  

Top Official Contradicts Obama; You Can Catch Ebola From Bus Sweat
Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Dr. Nicole Lurie contradicted President Barack Obama’s claim that the Ebola virus couldn’t be contracted by sitting next to an Ebola victim on a bus during testimony in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. During questioning by Republican Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie, Lurie acknowledged that the Ebola virus “can survive” on inert surfaces and that methods of transmission “include perspiration.” International Medical Corps. official Rabih Torbay also said that transmission via close proximity on a bus “could be possible” through perspiration, while Marine Corps Major General James Lariviere remarked that the virus, “can be transmitted through sweat.”

Jerusalem is Simmering: 1,000 Additional Forces Sent to Capital

Prophecy Sign:  Jerusalem, the cup of trembling

God Almighty warned that Jerusalem would be at the center of world news and that nations would gather against her, with the city being divided.  Already the signs of this division and siege are becoming apparent as things heat up between the Jews and Muslims.

I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. Zechariah 12:2-3 NIV

Jerusalem is Simmering: 1,000 Additional Forces Sent to Capital
As a result of the recent escalation of terror and violence in Jerusalem, law enforcement agencies are working Sunday to bring more security forces to the capital. An additional 1,000 Israeli Police and Border Patrol forces will be on hand to oversee security in eastern Jerusalem.  Escalated tensions in the capital were felt all of last week, particularly after Wednesday's terrorist attack, which killed 3-month-old, Chaya Zisel Braun and injured eight others - some critically. The tensions continued last night, when Palestinian youths clashed with security forces in several neighborhoods of eastern Jerusalem.

Netanyahu: Islamist Extremists Are Trying to Burn Down Jerusalem
At the opening of today's (Sunday) government cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the wave of violence against Jews that had been engulfing Jerusalem, especially in the eastern part of the capital. "In recent days, including today, we have deployed 1,000 additional Border Police, as well as members of other special units.  We cannot permit that the norm in the city will be rock throwing, and Molotov cocktails and general rioting," the Prime Minister stated. "And this is no coincidence," Netanyahu continued, "there are various radical Islamist forces at work here who are trying to burn down Israel's capital, and we exert, relentlessly, and with responsibility, every means at our command to make sure they do not succeed in these effort. And in this, I expect the full support of the Israeli public in our efforts to maintain Israel's capital."

Muslim leader in Israel: “Entire earth” will be “subordinate” to caliphate
In an interview with the official PA TV channel, Sheik Kamal Khatib, deputy leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, said: “Jerusalem will not be only the capital of the Palestinian state, but also the capital of the coming righteous Islamic caliphate.” After he repeated his views several times and said that “the entire Earth” would “become subordinate to the Islamic caliphate one day”, PA TV cut the interview short.

Solar Storm 14 Times Larger Than Earth Could Unleash A Society-Crippling Electromagnetic Pulse

Prophecy Sign:  Signs in the Sun, Moon and stars

You know all those clever and cool electronic gadgets that you lined up for just to be the first on the block to have it? Well if a huge crippling solar storm were to smack the earth with a direct hit, all electronics would go totally dark,  and your new toy would be as useful as a screen door on a submarine.  So have fun with it while you can.

There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. Luke 21:25a NIV

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. Revelation 16:8 NIV

Solar Storm 14 Times Larger Than Earth Could Unleash A Society-Crippling Electromagnetic Pulse
Did you know that a storm 14 times larger than the Earth is happening on the sun right now?  Earlier this week, it unleashed a flare which was a million times more powerful than all of the nuclear weapons in existence combined.  Fortunately, that flare was not directed at us.  But now the area of the sun where this solar storm is located is rotating toward Earth.  An eruption on the sun at just the right time and at just the right angle could result in a society-crippling electromagnetic pulse blasting this planet.  So if your computers, cell phones and electronic equipment get fried at some point over the next few weeks, you will know what is probably to blame.  Such an electromagnetic pulse has hit our planet before, and as you will read about below, some very prominent voices are warning that it will happen again.  It is just a matter of time. Scientists tell us that the absolutely massive sunspot group that has recently formed on the sun is highly unusual.  NASA has described it as “crackling” with magnetic energy.  The mainstream media has not been paying too much attention to it, but this sunspot group is potentially extremely dangerous.

Half the World's Population Will Have Chip-Based National Electronic Identity (eID) Cards by 2018

Prophecy Sign:  The coming "Mark of the Beast" identification system

Speaking of increased knowledge and hi-tech creations, (see our other blog entry of today regarding increased knowledge), the idea of a national electronic ID personally inserted onto or into the skin is no longer the thing of science fiction but is science fact.  By the year 2018 half the worlds population will have a chip based ID card, and already hi-tech firms are working on a digital tattoo which will take all your personal information and embed it onto your hand, (or perhaps your forehead).

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads,  so that they could not buy or sell unless the had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV

Half the World's Population Will Have Chip-Based National Electronic Identity (eID) Cards by 2018
Leading identity analyst firm Acuity Market Intelligence forecasts that in five years time half of the world's population will have a chip-based National eID card, including near-complete regional coverage in Europe. Asia, with its vast population, is expected to dominate the market accounting for more than 60% of all National eID cards issued between 2014 and 2018. Acuity's report  -- "The Global National eID Industry Report: 2014 Edition" — projects that nearly 3.4 billion National eID cards will be issued over the next five years doubling global National eID card circulation from 1.75 billion to 3.5 billion by 2018. According to Acuity Principal and biometrics and secure document market expert, Maxine Most, "In addition to the 3.4 billion chip-based National eIDs issued between 2014 and 2018, another 300 million National ID cards will integrate biometrics into non chip-based card programs."

Wearables need to get under the skin
We already have more devices in our lives than we know what to do with. With our tablets, smartphones, laptops and portable music players, once the gimmick of wearables wears thin, is there really space for another gadget in our plug sockets – let alone our lives? For the concept of wearables truly to stick, I don’t want to have to remember to strap on a smartwatch or attach my fitness tracker – the technology needs to get under our skin, become second nature. Quite literally. Project Underskin is already part way to making that happen. Created by NewDealDesign, the designers behind health and fitness tracker FitBit, Project Underskin came from an online design challenge that asked what things might look like when technology and fashion “reach beyond the wrist”. Their idea? A smart digital tattoo concept implanted into your hand, putting the ability do things like unlock your door, share data with friends or keep an eye on your vital statistics literally at your fingertips.
