I’ll start out by saying that I don’t recommend getting a microchip inserted in your body, as it seems like a security hazard. However, I want to point out that the same hazard is presented by having a cellphone or credit card.
And yet, a righteous man can use any of this technology without covenanting with Satan, so clearly the item is not the Mark of the Beast, the wicked covenant is.
With that out of the way, the reason I wanted to write this is that I’m frankly tired of people confusing the two.
The Mark of the Beast is required in the kingdoms of the devil to buy and sell. Sure, that sounds like a microchip, but it also sounds like a credit card. Or, money in general.
The Good vs. the Evil
So we see that the covenants we make with God are only valid when we are accountable for what we are doing. We are even asked if we do it of our own free will, because if anyone tried to force a covenant upon us it would not be valid. Now ask yourself, is getting technology implanted in your body an intentional covenant with anyone? Good or evil? No. It’s very, very similar to picking up a new cell phone. If you got the microchip with the knowledge and intention of making a covenant with the devil that would be one thing, but you could also get a cell phone with that expressed purpose.
The Timing of the Mark
Scriptural scholars agree that Revelations is in chronological order. John, or God Himself, will pause the narrative to teach us a lesson from time to time, but we can safely say that the events in Revelations are in chronological order. So at the very earliest we have to see the events that occur in Rev. 12 before some time later we will see what occurs in Rev. 13. To see one of the signs in Rev 12, check out the following video.
