Thats what revelation says. We will probably see it in our day.
Maybe. But, people have been saying that for centuries. If it happens or does not, I do not consider myself so wonderful that I could withstand any persecution. I pray God prepares and enables me to endure.

No other century has had the technology or desire or will to do it. Take a good look at our economy and how everything is being moved online, and requires a microchip.

You need a microchip to bank, to use a phone, all electronic purchases are tracked an monitored, you need direct deposit and a bank account, governments and companies abolishing cash and paper statements for electronic deposits, withdrawals, statements....

Don't be ignorant of the scriptures because people have been saying it for years. The bible clearly says no man knows the time or date except the Father in heaven. But look at end time prophecy and the world today. We are closer than any other generation in history.

I will soon need a digital I.D. to buy and sell. Perhaps they will use my Social Insurance Number, or as we Canadians so affectionately call it, our SIN number.

I expect that before long, so that the number cannot be misused, my government will microchip us. Not with me, they won't! I'll starve first!

Well we will definitely see it in the "terminal generation" that Psalm 48 refers to, the generation at the time that the Jews returned to Israel in 1948. That generation ends in 2028.

Yes, the Bible also says other things very clearly like "this generation shall by no means pass away until all these things be fulfilled" or 3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

I don't understand how not knowing the hour that the Lord is going to come is a judgement on those believers who don't repent if "no one knows the hour".

Every time the Lord said that you don't know the day or the hour He also said that you therefore need to watch. For example, you don't know the day or hour that your wife is going to give birth, therefore you need to watch. A farmer does not know the day or the hour that you are going to harvest, therefore he needs to watch his crops every day. You also do not know the day or hour that a thief will come which is why you hire night watchmen.

Yeah, it also says it will be like the days of noah in the end times, every man does that which is right in his own eyes, the world has a form of godlyness and denies the power thereof, everyone will be looking for someone to tell them what they want to hear instead of the truth.

Evil and corrupt generation, everyone walks after their own lusts..... the kist goes on and on
