January 20, 2020 – I just heard on FOX News that Amazon wants to start utilizing payment through the swipe of your palm. Amazon is creating a Palm Scanning Payment System. According to FOX, Amazon will know who you are, where you were, what you bought, and how much you spend. Amazon will be collecting this data to learn more about customer habits.
Countries overseas are using WAVE Pay in China and Europe has the Chip and PIN System. In the United States, we currently use magnetic stripe technology on the back of credit cards because it is the standard payment mechanism in America. Updating that technology is very expensive.
What does this mean to us in the Christian world? The Bible speaks of when the antichrist appears in the world, that men and women will have to take the mark of the beast to be able to buy and sell goods. Look at Revelation 13:16-18 (NIV), “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, 17 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. 18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”
Unless one has this mark, they will be unable to purchase anything. I would not take any implant, chip, or mark in your palm to purchase goods. This was predicted Two Thousand Years ago and as Revelation 13:16 states, the mark will be placed in the right hand or forehead.
We need to wake up and see what is occurring. The Bible says that we are to keep watch as in Matthew 24:42-51 (NIV), “42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
We are to stay steady in our walk with Christ. Do not take a mark in your hand. This very well could be the mark of the beast, of Satan. Why does Amazon or any other company or even the government need to know your whereabouts, what you buy, how much you spend, and your buying habits? They do not need to know.
