“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.” (Rev 13:16)

The idea of a mark without which no man can buy or sell is one we are asked to look out for as a sign of the coming end and the rise of the antichrist. The Word says we are to have wisdom to understand the significance and the season when this occurs.

While there is nothing wrong with this kind of technology, its application in this case will be a test for all believers. We are told clearly not to take the mark, and that will divide those who are obedient and those who are not.

It will be a time of trouble, difficulty, and persecution but one we can rejoice in and endure because we will then know that the end is near and our Lord and Savior will soon return. Meanwhile, embrace the technology, but when the time comes, reject the mark.

Quick Prayer: You said this requires wisdom. Give me what I need to understand. Amen.
