I am sorry but I am new and I hate to go off topic here as this discussion on the revelation is very interesting.
But what is this about the chiping that keeps geting interjected into this thread?
Are the posters refering to COFR?
They refer to a small part of the Revelation which states
13:16He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, to be given marks on their right hands, or on their foreheads; 13:17and that no one would be able to buy or to sell, unless he has that mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name
Some people on here feel this refers to a microchip being embedded either in the hand or in the forehead.
