Microchips ?

Do you have a pet that has a microchip ?

Our puppy, Paris, had a microchip when we adopted her. It was reassuring , because she was frisky, and wandered away from home a few times.

Sweden has been placing microchips in humans, since 2015.

The Swedes are leaders in new technologies, and thousands of Swedish citizens have already accepted microchips which are about the size of a grain of rice, and which are implanted in the left hand between the thumb and the index finger.

The microchips are convenient, people say, since they can replace the inconvenience of using cash or credit cards.

One man, who frequently misplaced his keys, reports the convenience of unlocking his doors with his microchip.

Future implications for microchips could potentially involve their storing one’s medical records, and even one’s important legal documents.

Countries such as the UK, Spain, Germany and Japan are now also exploring the use of Swedish microchip technology.

What seems like the stuff of science fiction is already available, and of course, upon hearing about such new developments, some people will be concerned about what the microchipping of humans may represent.

As always, we ask God for continued wisdom and discernment. We need His continual help as we continue to navigate in this increasingly complex world.

    1. That is the thought that entered my mind, too Annie.
      I think though, that in mainly secular countries like Sweden, most people may be unaware of what the Bible teaches, unfortunately. 🌼🤗

      1. If all this talk about “vaxeen passports” is carried out, and if the chips contain medical information, it could well be that someday we’ll be required to have one to shop, travel, etc. Scary stuff at times, but exciting to think Jesus could be coming back soon!

  1. The application of microchips in humans is a worrying trend. As Christians we have to be aware for the advent of the End Times and the Mark of the Beast. Whether microchips are the expected Mark no one really knows, but many (including myself) aren’t likely to take the chance that it might be.

  2. Yeah…Betty was microchipped when we got her. It’s the new thing with dogs. But people…first off…I didn’t know this about Sweden.Second…how did I not know this? You’ve left me speechless….

    1. There is lots of info on the internet about human microchipping in Sweden.
      In this country, children as young as seven can get a debit card with parents’ approval, and the entire country is aiming to be cashless by 2023.

  3. This is an interesting article and subject on many levels- thank you. On a spiritual level, some Christians believe these microchips represent the beast’s mark revealed in the book of Revelation. However, refusal or acceptance of the mark occurs after the emergence of Antichrist, which has not yet taken place. That will happen after the church, the body of Christ has been taken up to meet Jesus in the clouds– often referred to as the rapture. That being said, on a human level, microchip technology certainly presents more questions than answers for many people. In the future, as technology continues to advance at an accelerating pace, what little privacy we perceive still exists will vanish.

    1. Hey Darryl, I agree with your eschatology, “That will happen after the church, the body of Christ has been taken up to meet Jesus in the clouds– often referred to as the rapture.” I do see many things falling inline with End Time prophecies. Yes the Spirit (the Church) is holding back the revelation of the Antichrist. We don’t know when Christ will come for His bride but as we see those things that Must Come to Pass we know the second cumming draws near. If so then that which proceeds is also drawing near. So we may be seeing technology that could be used after were gone being put in place even now. Not to fear, as you said, “However, refusal or acceptance of the mark occurs after the emergence of Antichrist, which has not yet taken place.” We are to look for that Blessed Hope!

  4. Some will see the increasing use of microchips in humans as yet another step toward a one world order. I don’t necessarily agree. We are already being tracked by companies (benevolent, and otherwise) through the phones in our pockets. Nevertheless, the biblical story of the Tower of Babel is proof that mankind cannot outsmart God. So go ahead and track me, Google. God is tracking us all. 🥸

    1. Two positive things about being tracked – if I am ever accused of a crime, it’s nice to know I have proof of exactly where I was when the crime was committed. And secondly, if a parent’s worst nightmare occurred, the abductors could be located pretty quickly. So I can see the appeal. But as Sally says, we really need to pray for discernment.

  5. Thanks for the info, Sally. I didn’t know that about Sweden, either. The prophecy of Revelation has intrigued people for the last 2,000 years. The only thing of which I am certain is that the Lord, in His sovereign love for His elect people (whom scripture declares He chose before the foundation of the world), will not suffer any who truly belong to Him to be deceived. As in all things, believers in Jesus simply need to abide in Him and they will have no reason to fear anything whatsoever.
    God bless!

    1. Craig – thanks so much for this comment.
      I agree with you, we have nothing to fear as long as we keep abiding in Jesus.
      He tells us repeatedly throughout scripture to trust in Him. As we trust and obey, He gradually grants us more of the peace that passes understanding.

  6. The Bible warns of the coming mark of the beast. I warn people to never accept a microchip or any kind of mark. Chipping people is evil. I will never get that. We must stand strong in Jesus. God bless.

  7. We got our cat Olive at the animal shelter. They chip all animals when they are adopted. As far as chipping humans, you commented that Sweden wants to be cashless by 2023. That concerns me because by getting rid of cash, every movement and purchase can be tracked. We have friend who tried to purchase a suit at Nordstrom with cash and the store wouldn’t let him. I’m not buying or doing anything I need to be worried about, but the lack of privacy still bothers me.

    1. Yes, the lack of privacy is worrisome.
      Covid has also alerted us to the harmful effects of viruses and germs, and of course, cash is notorious for the germs that it carries.

      Thanks for giving your adorable Olive a good home. 🤗⚘

  8. Of course, the “Mark” will be logical for anyone wanting to participate in community life without endangering anyone else. Implants have begun for dementia residents in some care centers; easily such implants could replace “vaccine cards” and could not be lost, duplicated, or stolen. A simple step then to using it for a digital account like the ones China is developing. “The Beast, The False Prophet, the Mark of the Beast” of course will not be called that by those names by those to whom they apply. It will be The Answer Man, The Media Liaison, Account Safety Regulation (not literally, but you get the idea. 😒) Maybe, but we will not know until the “Man of Lawlessness” is revealed. Be faithful to Him who has called you out of darkness into His glorious light, and you will not be deceived.

    1. That is a great summary for us : ‘Be faithful to Him who has called you out of darkness into His glorious light, and you will not be deceived.’
      Thanks so much for this comment. ⚘🌼🤗

  9. I can understand why pets are microchipped; they are unable to communicate when lost. People are in most cases able to communicate, it seem like the microchipping would be for tracking where you spend, where you go, etc. We are wonderfully made and don’t need “big brother” monitoring.

  10. There is plenty of reasons to reject this Chipping and a lot of other things taking place in our time. The Times They Are A Changing, even as the end draws near. Is this the spirit of antichrist, perhaps. Is this tech that could be used in those days, perhaps. Ones view of God (His Sovereignty), Soteriology (security) and Eschatology plays a big part in how they see these things. Fear not, If God be for us, who can be against us? If you are born of God you have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Search the Scriptures, Studying (rightly dividing the word of truth). “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:7 — Blessings to you Sally, Good discussion topic.

    1. Thanks so much for your insightful comments, and for sharing the verse from Philippians, which explains how the Lord keeps us peaceful, even as chaos and confusion increase in ‘the world’. 🤗🌼

  11. I saw reports about this years ago but then the stories disappeared from the news and I forgot about it. I just want a world were people have the right to choose what goes into their bodies.
