When the Bible states that a time will come when everyone would be required to accept in his or her hand an implant labeled as the mark of the beast, and that this mark also would enable them to buy and sell, very few theologians and biblical prognosticators believed that we would indeed witness such a time, because they did not believe that the Bible was God's prophetic enunciation for our time.
Now that we have an Internet of Things (IoT), an Internet of People (IoP), cryptocurrency (digital currency), and experts telling us that the digital you is the new wave of the future, we are flabbergasted that what the Bible said would happen has happened (see Revelation chapter 13, verses 11 to 17). Let God be true and every man a liar (Romans chapter 3, verses 3 and 4). The God of the Bible has a solution, provided that you are interested in seeking his counsel. He knows the way out of this trap in which you have become enmeshed.
The Lord God Almighty El Shaddai; The Lord God Jesus Of Nazareth
