Revelation 16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.* Admin removed *
He contends that the mark will only be a visible id of who gives allegiance to the beast and will have nothing to do with chips or other technology.
"This is a very important point. Though modern technology will enable the antichrist and false prophet to bring about a cashless society and control all commerce on earth, we must differentiate between this technology and the mark of the beast, for the technology itself is not the mark."
Per other prophecy teachers insisting that the mark will be a chip under the skin, a barcode or other technology, states... "This is not the case. The mark itself will identify allegiance to the antichrist, but that is separate and distinct from the technology that enables him to enforce his economic system... Notice that the mark will be on people,not in them... It will be on the right hand or head and will be visible (perhaps like a tattoo), not hidden beneath the skin."
Does the mark cause a sore?
