"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.

     
   

Your next bank card might ditch rubbish PIN numbers – and use your fingerprint to verify your identity instead.

Banks are working behind the scenes to roll out a new breed of "biometric" bank cards across the UK, The Sun has learned.

These cards would use fingerprint scanning tech – similar to Apple's Touch ID for the iPhone – to make sure only you can use your bank card.

"What we're talking about is a normal-shaped credit or debit card," said Howard Berg, who works at digital security firm Gemalto.

"The big difference being on the right-hand side is a little sensor, and that's designed for you to place your finger or thumb," he told The Sun.

"Rather than having to use a PIN, you put your finger on the card and it authenticates the use of the card. It's the same for contactless."

PIN numbers are famously terrible at protecting you.

Chip-and-PIN was introduced in the UK back in 2005, but technology has come on a long way since then.

Having to memorise a four-digit number can be tricky, and can often leave forgetful shoppers stranded at the checkout.

Thieves can easily snoop on you entering a PIN code at a cashpoint, or install camera systems that film you entering your details – making it possible to create clone cards.

We've also heard reports about card "skimming", where people use portable card terminals to make contactless payments on cards inside people's pockets – without their knowledge.

"The idea of using a four-digit number to identify yourself is old-fashioned," Howard explained.

"Ever been behind someone in a queue that forgets their PIN? It’s embarrassing for them, and it’s inconvenient for you. "I think the big problem with PINs: one, you can forget them; two, you can change it; and three, you can unfortunately be subject to fraud."

For biometric cards, all you'd need to do is head into the bank and register your fingerprint on an Apple iPad.

They'd then be able to register that fingerprint to your card. It would only be stored on the card, and not on a central database.

Then when you turn up to a payment machine in a store, you'd be able to place your fingerprint on your card, verify your identity, and the payment would go through.

"It’s under your control. No one has access to your fingerprint. It’s on the card. If you throw it away, if you shred it, if you lose your card, no one can copy your fingerprint," Howard explained.

The fingerprint-scanning tech is powered by the magnetic field of the payment terminal, according to Howard.

And shops wouldn't even need to replace their machines (unlike with the rollout of contactless cards): biometric cards will work with existing payment terminals.

So when can you get one?

Howard told The Sun that there's "an awful lot of interest" in the UK from banks.

"Three or four banks are very interested," he said, but declined to reveal which banks were looking into the tech.

"I would say we'll probably see some next year."In the next two to five years, we wouldn't be at all surprised if, in certain countries, they became mainstream."We wouldn't be surprised if the UK was one of those countries."

There is not a more spine-chilling chapter in the entire Bible than Revelation chapter 13. This chapter describes the rise to power of a demoniacally inspired world dictator, similar in nature to Adolph Hitler. He is called “the Beast”, but better known as the Anti-Christ. He uses a world financial system to control the people, as no one can buy or sell unless they are linked by a mark with the number 666 to this system. Thus this mark in the body is known as the “Mark of the Beast.”

Although the Bible limits the “Mark” to economics, the current rapid advancement of technology shows that it is going beyond economics to a total world-wide surveillance system; thus, the “666 Surveillance System.” The Bible states that once a person receives the 666 Mark, he is locked into it and cannot escape.

There has been endless discussion over the last few years about how we’re heading toward a cashless society and what that will mean. But never has it been as close as it is now.

Numerous countries across the globe have begun actively taking steps to limit the use of currency and are rapidly initiating controls on its use.

In conjunction with government policies, some banks are beginning to charge negative interest rates, actually charging customers for depositing their money. Others have begun refusing to allow that cash be stored in safe deposit boxes. Across the board, banking institutions and government are working hand-in-hand to shut down the use of cash.

There are a number of reasons given for this, from convenience to security, but the underlying motive really is control. Bible prophecy makes it clear that a large part of the 666 Beast system will be controls on what anyone can buy and sell. With these moves to do away with cash, we’re taking a giant step toward that reality.

 


27th July 2018 THE JEWISH DECLARATION

Israel's parliament approved a controversial piece of legislation last week that defines the country as the nation-state of the Jewish people but which critics warn sidelines minorities. The government says the bill, passed in the early morning hours, will merely enshrine into law Israel's existing character. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called its passage a "historic moment in the history of Zionism and the history of the state of Israel."
