Is Real ID Act Setting Us Up for Revelations?

Hat tip to CadiaConcepts. Joshua gave a heads up in a way that gives pause. Is the Real ID Act going to set in wheels in motion that will bring about prophecies of the Book of Revelations? This story from USA Today (5-5-2005) is not getting much air time perhaps because of the judges filibuster and the Pepsi CEO story.

Quote from USA Today - The Real ID Act, which was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday and likely will clear the Senate next week, would require most license applicants to show a photo ID, a birth certificate, proof of their Social Security number and a document showing their full name and address. All of the documents then would have to be checked against federal databases. - end quote -

Joshua states in his blog: The card will likely take the place of your driver's license and will store at the very minimum your name, birthdate, sex, ID number, a digital photograph and address, with the possibility of additional data such as a fingerprint or retinal scan. State DMVs will be receiving federal funds to hand over their databases, with the goal of making each state's data available to all other states. The House passed the measure on Thursday, and both the Senate and President Bush are expected to sign off on the bill next week. But the real question is, who will be the first to ask to have the chip implanted so they don't have to worry about forgetting their wallet?

Hmmm. - Revelations Chapter 13 has a bit to ponder too.
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. KJV -

If all else fails, it would be better to die than to take the chip! - Get informed by reading the book before the need arises.
