Ready or not, here it comes. The Washington Post had a recent article about the new iphone X introduced by Apple. This new phone is the first to use facial recognition technology. In quoting the article, “A random person cannot look at your iphone X and unlock it. The chance is about one in a million. Privacy experts have warned us of a future where our faces and other biometrics are used to track our every movement; our political activity, our religious lives and even our romantic encounters. Research at Stanford contends that a range of private facts including your sexual orientation could be read through sophisticated analyses of facial images with the help of artificial intelligence.”
Facebook and Google have invested heavily in Facial Recognition Technology. So why the face? Revelation 13:16, And he causeth all, both small and great, rich or poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. What better way to recognize your allegiance to the Antichrist by having his mark in your forehead! With facial technology it will be easy to see. There are some people in the world who don’t have a right hand, but everyone has a head. The Antichrist will be more radical in his identification of his followers. By getting his mark, people will be permanently branded like cattle.
Getting a tattoo is a sign of the times. People are so used to tattoos now that it will be nothing to get one in your right hand or forehead. The Antichrist will be the sole dictator of the New World Order and will change the way the entire system operates. Daniel 7:25, And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints to the most High, and think to change times and laws… If you refuse to participate, you will be fired from your job, unable to pay your bills and you can’t buy or sell. Revelation 13:17, And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Refusing the mark means no job, no income, no welfare, no food stamps, no medical benefits, no healthcare, no public transportation. You would become an illegal citizen and identified as a threat to the New World Order.
All over the world we see a move in this direction. Facial recognition technology is being used in the UK at Heathrow’s airport and is coming to airports all over the world. India has facial recognition systems using high definition cameras to identify people in controlled settings or in a crowd. As the Antichrist comes to power, he will have all this new technology at his disposal.
People love the next best thing and notice how popular just one thing on the internet becomes a sensation overnight. The Antichrist will come on the scene as a great and charismatic leader. People will flock to Him because of His knowledge and power he wields. It will be hard not to worship him. People already worship technology. Look at how addicted people are to their phones, their Facebook, their games and their picture taking. Anyone can take a picture with their phone. Now they can be identified easily by their own selfie. I John 2:18: Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now there are many antichrists whereby we know that it is the last time.
