HIBM Editorial by Dr. K. Daniel Fried
With each passing day, we get closer and closer to the “Mark of the Beast” and it’s system being implemented. Just another step in this direction is seen in Google’s ambition to create the “ID RING” which will ultimately replace the need for passwords. Well, it is easy to see at once how such a device will be well accepted by the masses; the world is being fashioned into embracing the ultimate idea of an embedded mark, or chip, or RFID tattoo in the hand etc. The stage is being set right before our eyes – what will you do about it when it comes?
Well, if you are a believer in the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Rapture of the Church will be your deliverance, but those who believe not in the Lord Jesus Christ will be left to face this harsh reality – will you take the Mark of the Beast? If you do, your fate will be forever sealed, and sadly to say, you will follow the Anti-Christ into eternal punishment. You might say, “what ‘loving’ God would send people to Hell?”
Well, may I reply, “What poor lost sinner, deserving of it and already by nature condemned to it, would reject the Love of God that sent Christ the Messiah to pay the ransom for their eternal punishment. The Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, in the New-Testament, is very clear as to your outcome if you accept the Mark.
Today, the true Bible Believing Christian must refuse to take the Mark, though it might be in the guise of some Health-Medical need or going into a Gun Show where they innocently stamp ones forearm so you are accounted for, or going to a Museum where they do the same thing, etc. All these things are attempts to desensitize the public. We should have no part in these diabolical measures whatsoever, though I’m sure many hadn’t thought about this much – it’s time to get serious about these things and not lend the devil a helping hand or be the guinea pigs for preparing the way of the Anti-Christ identification system. You might say, “Well it doesn’t matter for me because I’m not going here to receive the Mark, so what if I let the Doctors embed a microchip tattoo in my new-born baby?” Just think about the great benefits you say.
The scriptures are very clear about not marking your skin or having tattoos, etc; never mind that you are helping the devil in his ultimately goals. Credit cards, scans, RFID tags in products – but a line must be drawn when it comes to “Marking” the skin or “Embedding some identifying device in our skin or body”. Beware; the temptations to adapt are getting greater as we approach the coming of the Lord. Don’t be fooled or deceived. We can’t be preaching against the Mark of Beast on the one hand (though it is not here yet, but its foundation is being set), and on the other hand be a partaker of a system which will lead into it. I have never seen events of Bible Prophecy so rapidly unfolding. Let God be true and every man a liar.
(Rev 13:16-18) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
(Rev 14:9-11) And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
_____________________Telegraph 1/20/13 9:16 PMChristopher Williams – Technology Correspondent:The struggle to remember several long and increasingly complicated passwords simply to carryout everyday web tasks could soon become a thing of the past, if Google gets its way andintroduces a ring that can confirm your identity online. In a research paper, two security experts at the web giant have outlined a future in which the main way ofguaranteeing we are who we say we are online will be possession of a physical token, perhaps embeddedin smartphones or even jewelry. They have added to growing claims that passwords are both inherently insecure and increasinglyimpractical. To more make them more difficult for criminals to guess, web services have forced people to use longerpasswords with different types of characters, but that also makes them more difficult to remember. Toadd to the headache, experts also advise against using the same password for different services, to reducethe impact if one is hacked. “Along with many in the industry, we feel passwords and simple bearer tokens such as cookies are nolonger sufficient to keep users safe,” said Google vice president of security Eric Grosse and engineerMayank Upadhyay, in an article to be published in an engineering journal. Cookies are small text files issued by websites to web browser software to keep visitors logged in oncethey have entered their password. “We’d like your smartphone or smartcard-embedded finger ring to authorize a new computer via a tap onthe computer, even in situations in which your phone might be without cellular connectivity,” theGooglers wrote. Grosse and Upadhyay said they are currently experimenting with YubiKey, a tiny USB stick thatimplements highly secure “one time pad” cryptography to log in to Google services, as a replacement forpasswords. In the future, they want similar authentication technology to work wirelessly and across all ofa person’s online accounts. “We’ll have to have some form of screen unlock, maybe passwords but maybe something else,” Grossesaid,. “But the primary authenticator will be a token like this or some equivalent piece of hardware.”Security experts have pointed to the problems with passwords for years, and suggested alternatives, butnone have been widely adopted because they would require web services to adopt standards.Grosse and Upadhyay’s paper is attracting attention because coming from the world’s biggest webcompany, it may stand a better chance of success. “Others have tried similar approaches but achieved little success in the consumer world,” Grosse andUpadhyay wrote. “Although we recognize that our initiative will likewise remain speculative until we’ve proven largescale acceptance, we’re eager to test it with other websites.”Given the rivalries online and the low cost and ubiquity of passwords, progress remains a tall order,however. Bill Gates predicted the death of passwords at a security conference in 2004.
