Long checkout lines at the grocery store are one of the biggest complaints about the shopping experience. Soon, these lines could disappear when the ubiquitous UPC bar code (Universal Product Code) is replaced by smart labels, also called radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. RFID tags are intelligent bar codes that can talk to a networked system to track every product that you put in your shopping cart.
Imagine going to the grocery store, filling up your cart and walking right out the door. No longer will you have to wait as someone rings up each item in your cart one at a time. Instead, these RFID tags will communicate with an electronic reader that will detect every item in the cart and ring each up almost instantly. The reader will be connected to a large network that will send information on your products to the retailer and product manufacturers. Your bank will then be notified and the amount of the bill will be deducted from your account. No lines, no waiting.
RFID tags, a technology once limited to tracking cattle, are tracking consumer products worldwide.
Outside the realm of retail merchandise, RFID tags are tracking vehicles, airline passengers, Alzheimer’s patients and pets, and soon humans.
The FDA approved the implantation of RFID microchips in animals and humans in 2004, even though research from as far back as 1996 shows that these implants can cause cancerous tumors in lab rats and mice.
VeriChip Corp. is leading the human chipping business. Human chipping has seemingly higher stakes than merchandise tagging, and RFID critics are concerned that human chipping may one day become mandatory. Christians see human chipping as foretelling a biblical prophecy from the Book of Revelation, interpreting the chip as the “Mark of the Beast.”
Pastor Billy Crone has gone to great lengths to enlighten us on this state of the art global tracking device. You hear in the news about drones and how dangerous they can be in the air. Well, could these just be the beginning of man’s greatest invention or “Mark of the Beast.” This series takes a look at three things to equip you with the facts concerning this planetary tracking device. You will learn how important it is for the government to be able to monitor and track everything from retail, food, shipping, medical, money, and everything else in between. Remember the movie 1984 where Big Brother (the government) is watching you? Well, it is now in motion.
This is a fantastic DVD set full of information we need to know.
