Word of the Week: Transcendence

A roundup of news stories about people who have technology implanted in their bodies, AKA microchips

It's amazing how far medicine has advanced in my lifetime. I remember the first transplanted heart operation (1967). The first test tube baby (1978). The first cloned mammal (Dolly the Sheep, 1996).

Now it seems that every other day some company or other is touting the benefits of a chip under our skin or a removable technological tattoo. The technology is there for the antichrist to embed a tattoo or other technological device so as to keep track of who can buy or sell - and who cannot. (Revelation 13:16).

The technology is there. LOL, I remember how shocking and strange the TV show in 1974 was, The Six Million Dollar Man, the bionic man. Steve Austin, the reconstructed man was actually the first widely televised cyborg. A very nice Terminator, as it were. The show's tagline was "we have the technology" ...

Harve Bennett: Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive.
Oscar Goldman: We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better, stronger, faster.

Methinks it is God who makes us stronger, better, faster ... by glorification, not technology. And personally, with my plantar fasciitis acting up, I can't wait to be pain free!

Here is a smorgasborg smorgasboard of recent news stories about a chip-

Is there a chip in your future? (not mine!!)

Microchips Will Be Implanted Into Healthy People Sooner Than You Think

Real cyborgs: People who have technology implanted in their bodies
[What's interesting to me in this article was the increase in sales. Why anyone who doesn't need a chip would get one is beyond me. His company is based in Seattle.]
Amal Graafstra sells implantable RFID chips through his website, Dangerous Things (he has an RFID chip in each hand). Traffic has increased from one sale a week in 2012 when he launched the site, to at least one a day now. He sells two different injection kits, for $57 and $99, and he estimates that he's sold two to three thousand chips total.
Here is another story about Amal Graafstra and his chips, from the Irish Examiner-

BIG READ: When man meets machine - Amal Graafstra and his bio-hacking body
Proponents of chip implantation point out that as it stands, there is no single convention for communicating with the range of machines that facilitate our lives. Card readers, ATM machines, smartphones, and building access panels all rely on a myriad of different technologies, from PINs to chips to magnetic strips and security questions. A single RFID implant could provide the single means by which we engage with the technology our lives have come to depend upon.

And that would be the last step, wouldn't it? The single means for the antichrist to track those who are left behind and choose to worship him so they can buy and sell (Rev 13:16-17).

[Wow that's small!]

Technology has come a long way in the last few decades, so quickly.


  1. I have a bi-ventricular defibrillator implanted for my heart. I was skeptical about the whole mess and waited until the cardiologists told me I had no choice if I wanted to continue that is :o) It's always bothered me just a bit thinking is there some kind of chip in there. I haven't had the heart...no pun intended...to ask them either! I'm hoping I don't. But do you think the way it goes is you have to accept the beast then get whatever implanted and do it knowing what it is and who you are pledging your faith to? This must sound silly but it's always bothered me. I have accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior.

    1. Kelly my dear, DEAR sister! Allow me the privilege of comforting you, to the best of my understanding.

      First, though we no longer have apostles like the bible days performing miracles, God still does miracles. He does them personally, and He does them through doctors. You are the recipient of a miracle, the medical kind. God, through the Holy Spirit, has enabled a chain of men to advance in understanding of the human body, so as to deliver patients from pain and to prolong their lives.

      Secondly, the mark of the beast will not be incidental nor accidental. It is a mark of worship, first of all. It will be up to the False Prophet to "cause," as Rev 13:15 says, all to accept this mark. Again, it is a mark of worship. Satan has always wanted worship that was meant for God. He said so!

      For you have said in your heart:
      ‘I will ascend into heaven,
      I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
      I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
      On the farthest sides of the north;
      1I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
      I will be like the Most High.’ (Isaiah 14:13-14)

      In the Tribulation, the Beast will finally get what he has been after since before man was even made: worship. He has to use the enticement of buying and selling to get it though, lol.

      Third, if you are part of the Bride of Christ, a believer, you WILL NOT even be here for the Mark of the Beast. We are not appointed to wrath (1 Thess 5:9) and God will remove us before the wrath to come upon the whole world (Revelation 3:10).

      You have nothing to worry about!!!! You are in the clear. Have NO worries about this for one moment more. You are a cherished daughter of Jesus and He will call you home, his little sheep, when the time is right, either through death or rapture. And then, you will have no technological parts, but only sinless flesh!!!
