Digital tattoos and advanced phone technology advertised by Motorola

In Revelation 13 we read that the Beast (Antichrist) will cause all people on earth to have a mark on their forehead or hand, that is a mark of worship of him.. The bait-and-switch to entice or force people to accept the mark will be that they cannot buy or sell if they do not have it. However, if they take the mark, they are declaring their allegiance with satan, and God's wrath will be forever on them. That is why the true Christians who convert after the rapture will not accept the mark. Their allegiance and worship is to Jesus. They will pay a heavy price for their stand, they will either starve or be martyred.

What this means is, during a time of war and chaos, the antichrist will have such control over the world that he can institute an infrastructure so penetrating that all the billions of people remaining on planet earth can be tracked.

Until recently we knew by faith that this will happen, but it was very hard to envision. The computer technology and scientific advances to allow this to happen did not exist. Now they do, and not only that, they're being used in exactly the way it will eventually be intended to be used, as the mark of the Beast.

In the following story we read that both the technology and the science is not just theory but in active use. The science to create a small tattoo mark on a person's body that is connected to the technology is also being advertised. I am NOT saying that this is the mark. I am saying, that as a 53 year old woman who remembers the adults in her life remarking about the wonder of the new invention called 'bar codes,' that the advance of technology within half a generation is consistent with the rapidly increasing birth pangs we read about that will fulfill the eventual end.

I am in awe of Jesus who sustains the universe by the power of His word.

Now You Can Unlock Your Moto X with a Digital Tattoo
Last year at the All Things D “D11” conference, Regina Dugan talked about new digital tattoo technology that would make it easier to unlock your phone. Now the moment is here: We’re excited to see this new technology brought to life for Moto X by Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group and VivaLnk Inc. Made of super thin, flexible materials, based on VivaLnk’s eSkinTM technology, each digital tattoo is designed to unlock your phone with just a touch of your Moto X to the tattoo, no passwords required. The nickel-sized tattoo is adhesive, lasts for five days, and is made to stay on through showering, swimming, and vigorous activities like jogging. And it’s beautiful—with a shimmering, intricate design. It’s another step in making it easier to unlock your phone on the go and keep your personal information safe. An average user takes 2.3 seconds to unlock their phone and does this about 39 times a day—a process that some people find so inconvenient that they do not lock their phones at all. Using NFC technology, digital tattoos make it faster to safely unlock your phone anywhere without having to enter a password
Can you see the dots connecting? No? Here is a photo:

  1. I'm amazed that technology is being invented because people don't want to take 2.3 seconds to unlock their phone, an accessory that is supposed to help us. Is there anything more clear that we have become slaves to technology rather than the other way around? that people would defile their bodies with tattoos in order to be 2.3 seconds lazier?

  2. I despise tattoos. I can't stand to see people marked with them. I don't even like the fake ones. I think they're ugly. Don't ask me why I have such a revulsion to them, but I've always found them distasteful. As you say, why would people "defile" their bodies with tattoos for any reason whatsoever?

    1. Hi Laurie,

      Well in your distaste for tattoos, you're in good company. God said in Leviticus 19:28, "..... Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. ... "

      In that day, grieving pagans would cut themselves, and body modification was rampant, such as tattoos. The command not to get one was specifically to the Israelites at that time, so the world would see that Israel was a distinct people of Yahweh, apart from the world.

      Since the Levitical law is fulfilled, does it apply to today's Christian? Not specifically, but the spirit is the same. In the New Testament we're called to be a holy people called out from the world. A Christian who is already saved should probably not indulge in such things, because the world is so full of this kind of behavior and we want to stand apart.

      However, if a person already has a tattoo and then they are saved, Jesus certainly looks at the inside of a person, not the outside.So no worries there! If a young person chooses to get a tattoo after he is saved, since it is not prohibited or commanded, it falls in the gray area of Christian liberty, a personal decision.

      If an elder who is saved decides to get one, a case could be made that it is unwise since elders are supposed to be a model for the younger and the elders are not supposed to put a stumbling block in front of them. That's why many elders choose to refrain from alcohol, it is not prohibited in the New Testament - but being drunk is. Even though an older person may have the self-control to drink a glass of something but not overindulge to get drunk, a younger person probably won't have that self-control. In order to model holy behavior, many men and women refrain so as to be an example and not cause another to stumble. Tattoos would be the same.

      I'm not a fan of body modification (although I could stand to modify my body by losing some weight, lol). This includes elective plastic surgery that has no medical basis or necessity. My opinion, it's the same as tattoos.

  3. I'm close to your age, Elizabeth, and I'm right with you - it is completely mind-blowing to see what is going on today, things we couldn't have imagined just a few years ago. It is absolutely astounding to think that the Lord Jesus might actually come back in my lifetime - this event that brothers and sisters have been looking for for 2000 years - and to be able to actually see how future events, things that seemed so fantastic just a few years ago, might play out is really, really incredible. Even so, come Lord Jesus! As my father says, I'm not looking for the undertaker, I'm looking for the uppertaker. :D
