I saw recently where Motorola has developed an all inclusive data chip that is no larger than a grain of rice. It contains everything about the person who carries it, including their complete medical history, location, bank account information, and job information. The article I read said Motorola had spent over $100,000 just to find out where that chip would be most effectively used. They said it could not be put into a credit card type of plastic because it would be too easily compromised, so the only other choice was to implant it in the human body. They concluded it would either be in the scalp (specifically the forehead) or the back of the right hand.
Is that the only thing the Bible tells us about what will happen before Jesus Christ comes back to the earth? No, there is much more.
1 THESSALONIANS 5:2,3 tells us,
“2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.”
