First Man to Board Airlines with Embedded NFC Chip in his Hand
Technology has advanced quickly, and it is no surprise that because of this advancement that our information is being tracked and out of fear many people have given up their freedom and are okay with their information being tracked. With technology changing so quickly for the sake of convenience many have also surrendered their freedom and privacy.
This goes along with what happened when Andreas Sjostrom boarded a plane by using an implanted chip in his hand. The chip technology is named Near-Field Communication, NFC, and Andreas was the first to board using this implanted chip. Scandinavian Airlines allows us to watch this take place as he boards the airplane.
Andreas says that “I think in the future, it’s going to be more common to put electronics and digital things as part of your body.” This is sounding much like the mark of the beast written about in the Bible in Revelation.
“Also, it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.” Revelation 13:16-18
These are volatile days, but at the same time, we are going to see the greatest harvest of souls for Jesus than ever before! We must stand firm in our faith and trust God no matter what is going on in the world. We don’t have to follow what the world is doing by taking a mark of the beast. God will provide for all our needs. God will rescue us and when we take a stand for God nothing in this world can come against you. We want to hear from you! You can write to us at Friends@VFNKB.com.

#WisdomMoments A PROUD Heart Brings You DOWN
In this wisdom moment, we share the importance of humility.
“Before a downfall the heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.” Proverbs 18:12
It is important for us to take a prerequisite before a man falls. We can look at what took place to make them fall and know what we can prevent in our own lives or the lives of others to stop us from falling.
It is also important for us to have someone in our lives who can point out to us when we are walking in pride because pride is blinding. Pride is defined as an inordinate opinion and an intense self-awareness of yourself. It is when we begin to take our own counsel above God’s or over other people. Walking in pride will always lead to a downfall. It is important to realize that we need God in everything we do because we do not know everything.
How do we humble ourselves? Jesus said, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” Humility is defined as a total dependency on God and a love for other people. When we throw ourselves into the things of God and trust God with our lives, then honor comes. We want to hear from you! You can write to us at Friends@VFNKB.com.
