    Revelation 13:16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,

    17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Amazon reportedly wants to turn your hand into a credit card

    * Technology giant Amazon is working to allow customers to connect their credit card information to their hands, The Wall Street Journal reported.

    * The company has reportedly begun working with Visa on testing out the terminals, and has discussed the project with Mastercard, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Synchrony Financial.

    * Amazon has already filed a patent for a “non-contact biometric identification system” that features a “hand scanner” to produce a picture of a person’s palm.

    I don't know why they do all that, they could easily use face recognition. My Samsung tablet does tat easil, except when I am wearing a hat.

    I get tired of people trying to make these correlations...

    Yeah, me too. We've seen social security numbers be called the mark of the beast, we've seen credit cards, we've seen UPC codes, we've seen embedded ID chips, etc.

    But this is so audacious and it lines up with the scripture in Revelation 13 more than any other correlation so far. Combine it with facial recognition (maybe the credit card info will be put into people's foreheads too) and you've got both hands and foreheads being marked.

    I thought it was worth posting. I'm undecided as to whether this would be the method the antichrist would actually use.

    Except it doesn't line up. All the mark is is the NAME or NUMBER of the beast. So it isn't going to be a unique id to each individual person.

    The U.S. flag in churches has a higher chance of being the anit-shema imo.

    Receive the mark on the right hand...yield one's members (whether or not one approves of antichrist doctrine)
    Receive the mark on the forehead...approve of antichrist doctrines.

    Much like yielding to legitimize a gay wedding (as if there were such a thing) by serving it or advocating for it.

    The info junkies want to know everything about us.. it's all about absolute control. They claim this is necessary to control crime. I laugh because if there is a will there is a way the criminals will not stop to steal what they want. They will find a way to get your numbers and rob us blind in spite of the mark..
