The dystopian future, where you can’t buy or sell without constantly being monitored and connected to databases containing your fingerprints, face scans, eye scans and more continues to rapidly leak into the present.
The global engineers want humanity to go beyond being merely connected to the internet, they want each individual personally and intimately connected by unique bodily identifiers enabling the tracking of everything you do.
Zwipe, a technology company that creates self-contained biometric authentication solutions for payment cards and wearable devices is currently piloting a biometric payment card with an unnamed Tier 1 European bank with millions of clients across all continents. An article from FindBiometrics documents the rest of the story:
The actual pilot will be carried out in three countries in Europe, where the bank will issue biometric payment cards to a few hundred lucky cardholders in the first quarter of 2022. If that goes well, the bank plans to move forward with a full commercial launch of the biometric cards later in the summer of that year.
The cards themselves will feature Zwipe’s Pay ONE technology, which enables the use of fingerprint recognition to verify a cardholder’s identity during a transaction. In doing so, it allows payment providers to lift the payment cap on contactless transactions, and minimizes the need for physical contact with PIN pads and point-of-sale terminals during the pandemic.
Zwipe will start working with the bank and its card manufacturing partners within the month. The company believes that the cards will appeal to new and existing customers that are looking for a safe and convenient payment experience.
“We are thrilled that a Global Tier 1 bank has chosen Zwipe for their pilot and, potentially, for a commercial launch where the long-term potential could be significant,” said Zwipe CEO André Løvestam. “Besides the technology, Zwipe will also support the bank through all stages of the pilot, ensuring that all end users’ experiences and feedback are systematically captured.”
Zwipe is just one of many companies working on “solutions” such as this that will essentially serve as a digital ID. With plans in motion for a “Great Reset” of the global financial system, how much time do we really have before all banking systems converge into one giant entity requiring our biometric data, vaccine passports, and obedience to totalitarian dictates to participate in daily life?
If this sounds eerily familiar to what is described in the Book of Revelation you are right. Revelation 13 describes a time in which commerce is not possible without a “mark” of allegiance to a world leader commonly referred to as “The Antichrist”. This mark is given in the forehead and right arm and will be necessary to buy or sell.
The use of a mark on the body to conduct commerce sounds very similar to biometric payments. Amazon is already leading the charge in biometric payments with it’s Amazon One system in which people can register their palm print and then just scan their palm when paying in the future at their grocery stores.
There have been other advances including digital tattoos, microchip implants and other technologies that could also be incorporated.
None of these technologies by themselves are the mark of the beast but they demonstrate the technological capabilities to implement what scripture describes. And while technology itself is neither good nor bad – it shows how such technology could be used by those in power to control much of society.
What we are also seeing is a preconditioning for social & technological acceptance of such advancements that could pave the way for what will one day lead to this mark described in Revelation.
How many of today’s world events might play into the events Revelation describes remains to be seen. But a great place to start for the average person is to understand what the Book of Revelation says is coming. Without that knowledge you will be caught off guard and not be able to see how the the events of today are leading to the final fulfillment of prophecies predicted by Scripture.
