Refer to my other post "The Mark of the Beast" for Biblical references regarding it.
Such chips could be precursors/prototypes for the Mark of the Beast. At this time, no one knows for sure what the Mark of the Beast will be composed of (if it is a surgical chip implant or perhaps a more non-invasive tool like a RFID flat chip/electronic tattoo?), as the Bible is not clear about the details. One can only speculate that the Mark of the Beast could involve a chip system with a human interface as the Bible clearly states that the the Mark of the Beast will be needed for financial transactions. Today's financial transactions are done through chips in credit cards and computers.
However, if chips can be integrated into the CNS and actually tap into the brain's electrical signals to read them, what stops them from actually taking over (hacking) the CNS (receive input from an outside source to control a person)? They're talking about a wi-fi connection/telepathy between humans (human brain-to-brain interface)- either through:
(1). wireless EEG (surgical implant not needed for this and I wonder if a RFID flat chip/ electronic tattoo will accomplish this?) or
(2). through an actual surgical chip implant.
False teachers teach that forgiveness is possible even after receiving the Mark of the Beast. Nothing in the Bible indicates that people are able to repent after taking the Mark of the Beast. In fact, it states that even after God sends plagues, those who received the Mark of the Beast still don't repent (refer to Rev. chapter 16). If Satan and the Antichrist are controlling your mind possibly with some mind control tool, how can you repent?
Clearly, something is stopping people who received the Mark of the Beast from repenting even after experiencing God's wrath. That is not normal. Is it Satan's control over their bodies which makes repentance impossible?
Again, false teachers are spiritually blind guides who lead others who are spiritually blind- into a pit of destruction, like Jesus said. Their sugar coating tactics make their teachings more pleasing to accept instead of the hard truth. Many Christians could probably be deceived to accept the Mark of the Beast thinking that they'll still be able to receive forgiveness. I wouldn't be surprised if they use OSAS/unconditional eternal security to teach that even if they take the Mark of the Beast, they'll still be saved as all their sins (past, present and future) have been forgiven. Will such people also misquote Romans 8:1 and claim that they are no longer under condemnation even if they take the Mark of the Beast? If you do hear that, know that their madness is getting worse and they continue to destroy themselves (they are a danger to themselves and others). Perhaps, God may use the Great Tribulation to teach many Christians regarding the errors of their false teachings and show that obeying God's commands and enduring persecution is the only way to be saved- and not through a dead faith (refer to Rev. 13:10; Rev. 14:12; Matt. 24:13). A good way to identify false teachers among any denomination is by asking every teacher/preacher regarding the link between the Mark of the Beast and salvation (i.e. "Can a person be saved despite getting the Mark of the Beast?"). If they answer "Yes" to that question, the evidence continues to pile against them- that they indeed are false teachers (in addition to the evidence that is already present regarding their justification of ongoing sin). If they answer "No" to the same question, then they themselves would prove that their false teachings like unconditional eternal security/OSAS are wrong as they would be finally admitting that obeying God's commands, remaining faithful and enduring persecution/trials/tribulations are vital components in maintaining salvation.
Isn't the same happening today regarding ongoing sin? False teachers sugar coat sin with sin excusing doctrines and keep people enslaved in sin instead of breaking them free. This is how Calvinists and dispensationalist teachers lead many into their own destruction.
Many "Christians" despise obeying God's commands and will condemn it as "works based salvation." They love being evil and justifying their evil behavior by distorting the Bible. Their desire for evil has started to bring evil on themselves (reaping what they sowed). Today, I saw a headline that the Ten Commandments are banned in a school in Georgia, but Muslim prayers (and indoctrination?) are allowed (No Teaching Of 10 Commandments, But Muslim Prayers Allowed In Georgia School).
In a nation like America where Christians make up the majority, we should be leading others (especially foreigners of other faiths) to righteousness. However, many Christians have displayed themselves as antinomians and narcissistic sociopaths and thereby have embarrassed the Christian faith altogether. They hate God's commandments, so now Muslim theology is being forced down their throats. In the Old Testament, Israel rebelled against God and found obeying God's commands as burdensome. As a result, they were kicked out by God out of the land that He had given them. They were exiled and sent to lands where they were forced to worship false gods. There's a price to pay for rebellion against God, whether Jew or Christian.
Like I've said before, even though sociopaths will try to hurt and destroy others, they will bring evil against themselves and they will eventually destroy themselves.
Revelation 16:1-2,9-11 (NLT):
"Then I heard a mighty voice from the Temple say to the seven angels, “Go your ways and pour out on the earth the seven bowls containing God’s wrath.”
2 So the first angel left the Temple and poured out his bowl on the earth, and horrible, malignant sores broke out on everyone who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his statue.
9 Everyone was burned by this blast of heat, and they cursed the name of God, who had control over all these plagues. They did not repent of their sins and turn to God and give him glory.
10 Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. His subjects ground their teeth in anguish, 11 and they cursed the God of heaven for their pains and sores. But they did not repent of their evil deeds and turn to God."
Even in Revelation 16, God is looking for repentance/a saving faith from the wicked- not a dead faith for salvation.
A quote from an article (DARPA is implanting chips in soldiers' brains, according to this new book):
"The agency is pioneering Iron Man-like exoskeletons to help protect soldiers from fire and the elements so they can keep fighting for longer. And under a program called the Brain-Machine Interface, defense scientists have studied how brain implants could eventually enhance a soldier’s cognition.
The brain emits electrical signals and an implanted chip can tap into those signals to read them. Outside of the government, scientists at places like Berkeley’s Brain-Machine Interface Systems Laboratory are experimenting with how to use such implants to translate thoughts into action for people with neurological impairments, eventually hoping to, for example, help a paralyzed person move.
At DARPA, programs like RAM and REMIND (Restorative Encoding Memory Integration Neural Device) have explored how brain implants might help soldiers returning from war with traumatic brain injuries impacting memory. Other DARPA programs have aimed to help soldiers at battle to communicate by thought alone.
“Imagine a time when the human brain has its own wireless modem so that instead of acting on thoughts, warfighters have thoughts that act,” Jacobsen chronicles DARPA’s Eric Eisenstadt telling a crowd at a technology conference in 2002.
But Jacobsen’s warning is that while helping soldiers suffering in the aftermath of war may seem inherently benign, we must not forget that DARPA is in the business of weapons development. The question that should punctuate everything DARPA does is “How can this be weaponized?”
Understanding the human brain is as important to achieving artificial intelligence as understanding computers. “The Pentagon is clearly very confident that they’re moving toward autonomous weapons,” Jacobsen told me. “The question is where is that confidence coming from?”
