Prophecy Sign: The "Mark of the Beast" identification system
In the original Greek the word for 'mark' is 'charagma' and is defined as an engraving or stamp/sign which suggests something very permanent. A tattoo or e-skin system which simply affixes to the skin doesn't sound permanent enough to make the grade as the future 'mark of the Beast' However a DNA marker that has been added to the bearer of a tattoo based biometric/payment system might make the future 'mark' the type of system that can easily identify a person as a follower of the Antichrist. We have suggested in the past that this DNA marker is a genetic upgrade that will change a human from the sole creation of God to a human-hybrid no longer redeemable unto God.
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 they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV
A Tattoo-Based Mobile Payment System May Be Coming
Mobile payment systems have come a long way. First there was cash, and then checks. Cards stepped in next, and the cards migrated to phones, and now most recently we have wearable devices. There have been complaints about the wearables being too clunky to really be used, however, and that’s leaving some users looking forward to the next platform: a mobile payment system built around a unique tattoo. The product of a partnership agreement between MC10, a healthcare firm, and a product solution design firm known as PCH, the end result will produce a set of wearable devices so thin and flexible that it can be applied directly to the skin.
New E-Skin Could One Day Display Biometric Data
Japanese researchers are testing an "electronic skin" that one day could be used to track biomedical data. Writing in the journal Science Advances, University of Tokyo researchers say the “ultrathin, ultraflexible” film they developed will allow functions like blood oxygen level and heart rate to be displayed electronically via a light-emitting diode built into the e-skin. The e-skin is a mere 2 micrometers thick and is made from alternating layers of silicon oxynitrite and parylene. Researchers said a special electrode inserted between the layers allowed them to attach the polymer light-emitting diodes and organic photodetectors to the skin.
Kuwait to DNA test and tag all tourists
All visitors and tourists to Kuwait will now have to submit to a DNA test and be DNA tagged before they’re allowed to enter the Persian Gulf state. In a world first, Kuwait wants to DNA “tag” everybody in, as well as entering the country with the new DNA legislation that will become law this year. The Kuwait government says the forced DNA testing won’t affect people’s personal freedom and privacy but will be done to keep track of people and to help if they commit crimes. Tourists and visitors to Kuwait will get their DNA taken through specimens of saliva or a few drops of blood done at a special DNA testing facility at the airport.
