Mark of the Beast?
I was recently sent an email pertaining to a patent that is a method for verifying human identity during electronic sale transactions. It is U.S. Patent #5,878,155 and I believe that it could very well be the Mark of the Beast.
"[The Beast] also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name...His number is 666." -Revelation 13:16-18
There is a chance that this specific patent will not become the actual Mark of the Beast during the Tribulation Period, but it is very interesting to point out that the Bible predicted nearly 2000 years ago that we would be buying and selling merchandise using a mark or bar code on our body, which will most likely happen in the next few years because we are heading for a cashless society. This is why many people believe that it will not be very long before Jesus comes to rapture His people.
