| Microchip in hand allows you to pay for goods in UAE|
It might sound like something from a dystopian science fiction fantasy but you could soon be able to pay for goods and services with a microchip that is embedded in your hand, according to Etisalat officials.
The UAE telecoms giant unveiled new injectable microchips, which store all your credit card, ID and business card data inside, for the first time in the Middle East at GITEX 2016 in Dubai.
The technique is called bio-hacking, where an alien device is embedded on the back of the hand between the thumb and forefinger using a special syringe, medical tattoo artist Hazim Naori told 7DAYS.
“We clean the skin with sanitiser and after this we put the marks exactly where we want to pierce it,” he said.
“We insert the needle under the skin with a part of the need that pushes it in, and that’s where it settles and it needs a week or two to heal.”
Naori performed the implant for the first time on October 7 on George Held, from Etisalat’s Innovation team.
Speaking about the implantation, he said: “It’s like a piercing, it doesn’t hurt, but it feels a bit uncomfortable for the first day. The bio-hacking improves and enhances your body and will be not just a wearable device, but a device within yourself. You cannot replace or lose it, if you have an accident it’s still with you.”
Held warned, though, that before it can be commercially launched, decisions need to be made on what role it will play in society.
“There is no legality issue here. We already have agreements with Emirates ID and Visa and we issue a credit card with it through Etisalat, we have rights to issue those,” Held explained to 7DAYS.
He revealed that final costs for the procedure are not confirmed yet but it is expected to cost Dhs500 ($100) for both the injection and the gadget itself.
Asked if the information stored on the chip could be hacked with the right equipment, Naori said using the card would still require the necessary authentications.
“We have to internationally agree on the system and this is eventually going to happen, let’s be honest,” said Naori.
“Thirty to 40 years ago there were no (bank) cards and now I have a card with all my ID and sim card on it and put it in the machine without showing anyone my passport.
“It’s an electronic smart gate. It’s the same thing, instead of having the card you just have it under your skin and it verifies you.”

15 And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.
16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave,to be marked on the right hand or the forehead,
17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.
18 This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666

1) a chip is not a mark
2) there is no requirement that the chip be in the right hand
3). Rev 13:15-18 cannot be taken literally, but if you want to feel free.

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the MARK of his name.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

While there might be some speculation as to what a chip might or might not be. If we are the Lords and sensitive and discerning His voice and the leading of the Holy Spirit the Lord will let us know what to do when that time comes.
But there is no question all that we are seeing is leading up to a form of identification that will surpass all that is currently in place and be directly linked to the mark of the beast Revelations speaks of.

It won't be long before our very DNA can be scanned with an instrument in seconds. There will be no need for any chips, marks, tattoos or anything else. Our identification will simply be ourself.

Revelation 13:14-15 And with all the miracles he was allowed to perform on behalf of the first beast, he deceived all the people who belong to this world. He ordered the people to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life. He was then permitted to give life to this statue so that it could speak. Then the statue of the beast commanded that anyone refusing to worship it must die.
So for those who believe this mark is literal do you also believe this talking giant robot is also literal?

Exodus 13:9 says, “And it shall serve AS A SIGN to you on your hand, and AS A REMINDER to you on your forehead, that the law of the LORD may be in your mouth; for with a powerful hand the LORD brought you out of Egypt.”
