Electronic Skin & the Mark of the Beast

Electronic skin is a technological innovation that enables people to wear an electronic circuit on their skin like it is a temporary tattoo. Electronic skin can be applied to many places on the human body, including the arm and the forehead.

Like with many innovations that place electronics on a person’s skin, some wonder whether electronic skin technology could represent the Mark of the Beast. For instance, the Drudge Report posted the headline: “Mark OF THE BEAST? Electronic tattoo has medical, gaming, spy uses…” In addition, I found multiple online forums speculating about the potential for electronic skin to serve as the Mark of the Beast.

I will provide my insights on whether electronic skin technology has the potential to be the Mark of the Beast in this article.

Revelation 13 states that the False Prophet will force people to get a special (visible) mark on their right hand or on their forehead. Although the mark will enable a person to conduct transactions, a person could get by with having beast’s number or the name of the beast (verse 17):

“(16) 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: (17) 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.” (Revelation 13:16-17)

The fact that a person can also buy or sell by using the name of the beast or the number of the beast shows that people do not obtain the Mark of the Beast so that they buy or sell. The Mark of the Beast’s main purpose is to serve as a way for people to prove that their allegiances are with Antichrist. In other words, accepting the Mark of the Beast means that you have declared yourself a follower of the Antichrist and thereby an opponent of God.

I expect the Mark of the Beast will be a permanent thing on a person’s body because the Antichrist would likely want something that makes people demonstrate their long-lasting loyalty towards him. What stronger way for someone to demonstrate their loyalty to Antichrist then to get something on their body that Antichrist wants them to get and cannot be removed? Furthermore, Revelation 14:9-11 provides a stern warning to people who receive the Mark of the Beast. Those who receive the Mark of the Beast will be punished severely for eternity:

“(9) 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, (10) 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: (11) 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.” (Revelation 14:9-11)

The passage suggests that there is no turning back for those with the Mark of the Beast. Perhaps a key reason for this is that the Mark of the Beast cannot be removed from a person’s body.

After discussing the likely permanence of the Mark of the Beast on a person’s body, it is important to note that the electronic skin technology that researchers have developed is not permanent. Therefore, I do not see electronic skin technology (in its current form) being used as the Mark of the Beast at this point in time. Nevertheless, electronic skin technology is a good example of how rapidly technology is advancing. The technology we see today is something that was probably unimaginable to people who studied Bible passages concerning the Mark of the Beast 100 or even 50 years ago. We live in some interesting times…

  1. To Alan; You’re pretty close. With Artificial Intelligence growing exponentially, many will be serving or working with possible robots, who will be working with them, in the work force. It’s easy to program them in a moments notice to do the bidding of whom ever has their WI- FI. This sounds like science fiction, but it is already a reality. Implanting small computer devices under one’s skin, will be easy, like they tattoos animals get at a Vet’s office. If you really want to track someone or control someone, a small device could keep you in line or keep you detained. Since America is growing fast into a nation of, ” have and have-nots,”we should see great upheavals in society, that will propel us into this shortly. The only problem with that solution is, that you may not want to be the one having it given to you. Eventually, taking the mark, will be sold as a way for the governments to stop crime, reduce health care costs, adjust controls on stock markets, and eventually make everyone conform to their ideals. Worry about “those who control their ideals”, as they will be the true rulers of the world, or true deceivers. The deception will be obvious and combative to every true Christian believer. One World Government seems very possible from this standpoint. I personnelly wonder, if the Ten Kings, who give their crowns to the Anti-Christ, might not be rulers like we think, but actually a computer whiz with a Master Major Computer, who’s operating with the mark, by aligning even the cloud technology into their theology? And with the serious increase in drones, this will make spying and control even more sinister, than just taking a mark. The Christian’s on earth will need supernatural help, in order to escape most of this coming onslaught. Jn

  2. Hi,
    Bitcoin came into being mysteriously, no one knows who is behind it. Bitcoin requires a code, which can be made into a QR code, which can be made a tattoo. Bitcoin can survive an economic and bank crash.

  3. It means in their minds, and doing the work with their hands.

    I know most Christians would want to put those who would have the mark of the beast to death themselves if they know that they are following the antichrist, if they could see a so-called mark on the body. Christians who are misled by false doctrines already have the mark of beast and do not even realize it and help the spread that false teaching, through their little publications to others. One of the first temptations that Christ faced by satan(antichrist) was twisting of the Word of God and he warned US to beware of this. How was adam and eve tempted by satan (antichrist), through a twisting of God’s Word. In these end day events satan (antichrist) will do exactly the same thing. In the 2nd and 3rd chapter of Revelation, It tells of the two churches God was most pleased with, Smyrna and Philadephia, because they both taught about the synagogue of satan and held the key of David. Telling of the bloodline of the kenites and those who have the mark of the beast through that bloodline and mislead others into taking that mark,

  4. I believe it will most likely be “embedded” as scripture says “in” their right hand or “in” their foreheads as some people do not physically have a right hand. These two physical locations are probably standardized, globally mandated biometric scanning points.

    As far as the actual electronic device employed, the RFID microchip comes strongly to mind, essentially because of it’s current manufacturer touting a year past of acquiring a financial security based company and thereby, changed their original company name from Verichip LLC. to PositiveID LLC.

    They bought Safe Vault Inc. to be the major player for both ID as well as to implement secure contactless payment security and hack proof capable, when and if it’s called upon to the expected mandate from the satanically led UN and it’s global government commands!

    24/7 realtime surveillance and with the Bilderberg/Illuminati cronies hard at work with global smart sensor networking utilizing an array of cloud computing technologies coming into reality, this anti-Christ figure will have almost “God-like” powers.

    • Patriot Warrior; You are ahead of the game. You recognized the same families, who voted Hitler into power, in 1932, will be running the surveillance equipment in the future. They will have those businesses that will be considered normal, by all outsiders looking in. The general christian has no idea, what’s coming for them and their faith. By the time they figure it out, if they do, their faith will no longer be tolerated,and it will be too late. Globalization is just another way to say world dictatorship. The biggest problem here is, christian’s will not agree on anything except their own interruptions of their own minds and the own signal denominations. And since no one wants to admit, that they don’t know everything about the End Times, people will not go deeper, nor realize anything new or different is happening in their current events. Many will adopt to any new rule, to save their churches. Many will save their monies, just to preform in a corrected controlled form.. Right now, we have such fallow ground, that plowing it up will not bring a revival. Jn
