Nokia’s Digital Tattoo – Foreshadow of the Mark of the Beast?
As more and more of the technology needed to develop the prophesied Mark of the Beast of the Book of Revelation is invented, Nokia has taken it to the next level. The Nokia cell phone company has filed a patent for a tattoo made with magnetic ink that would be able to communicate with your cell phone.
The apparatus comprises “a material attachable to skin, the material capable of detecting a magnetic field and transferring a perceivable stimulus to the skin, wherein the perceivable stimulus relates to the magnetic field.” For those wary of an actual tattoo, the patent says the device could potentially be stamped, sprayed, attached with adhesive tape, applied as a decal or even drawn on.
The object could emit different vibrations for “an alert of a message, indication of an incoming call, indication of a body part in proximity of the electronic device, indication of information displayed on the electronic device, indication of a launch of an application and indication of a least a portion of a displayed image.” (source)
The tattoo could work with a cell phone, laptop, tablet or gaming console. Once again, the technological advances being marketed to society are eerily similar to the Mark of the Beast of Revelation 13. As we detail in our article “666: The Mark of the Beast – Humanity’s Ultimate Choice” the Antichrist, the prophesied false Messiah who will rule over a global government in the Great Tribulation (the final years on Earth before the Second Coming of Christ), will set up a system that will track all the buying and selling of goods and items:
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: 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. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. – Revelation 13:16-18
All commerce for every person on the planet will be controlled by a mark put into the right hand or forehead. To be a real part of society, you will need the Mark of the Beast. This prophecy was written in ca. 96 AD, a time when in addition the currency of the Roman Empire, any goods could be used for barter, leaving numerous ways to buy and sell. The idea of a system where everyone’s financial information and transactions could be controlled by just a mark in their hand was something not even possible until this past decade. The Nokia tattoo is just another example. We previously covered an electronic tattoo created by the University of Illinois that attached a computer chip to the skin that could read biological functions. So the movement to put technology into the skin that contains personal information is clearly underway.
As the world moves closer to the end times, Satan and those under his influence will continue to condition society to be prepared to embrace the Mark of the Beast System. It is interesting that it is the False Prophet, the religious leader who works with the Antichrist, who causes people to take the Mark. So there appears to be a spiritual element to it as well. And once in power, the Bible predicts that the majority of the world will want the Mark just as they want the Antichrist in power. This will be the greatest deception in human history. As Satan’s representative and False Messiah, the Antichrist will lead the deceived world into worshiping him and Satan. And the decision to take the Mark is a permanent one. Revelation 14 states:
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, 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: 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 Mark will be an eternal death sentence for those who choose to take it. It represents an allegiance with Satan. And even despite the supernatural warnings that will be received in the end times, some will still choose it. Do not be deceived.
At His Second Coming, Jesus Christ, the true Messiah will put an end to the brief career of the Antichrist. He will then establish His Kingdom on Earth, ruling in peace and righteousness. And all those who believe in Jesus Christ, will be resurrected to eternal life, ruling with Him. This article is not seeking to state that the Nokia tattoo is the Mark of the Beast or to dissuade readers from purchasing a type of phone. Its purpose is to point out the way world events are swiftly coinciding with Bible prophecies written almost 2,000 years ago. No other religious book even attempts to predict the end time like the Bible in its prophecy of a global government, religion and economic system.
This is why it is important to not just have the knowledge, but have eternal life, which comes through belief in Jesus Christ, not just as a man, but as the Son of God, who gave his life willingly on the cross to take the punishment for the sins of humanity and rise again. And for those who believe in Him, they receive the gift of eternal life for the work that He did. As frightening as the 666- Mark of the Beast may seem, it will be a choice. And so is eternal life today. The world is clearly pushing its agenda in the opposite direction of God’s plan for humanity. And everyone makes a choice to either side with the world and “do their own thing” or humble themselves, confess their sins to God and receive free forgiveness in Jesus Christ. Do not be deceived. Choose wisely.
