BRACELET FOR HEALTH ALERTS
We like every week to bring what we call a Prophecy Update. We show how news and trends in the world are corroborating centuries-old prophecies found in the Bible.
The mark of the beast was introduced by the apostle John when he wrote the Revelation of Jesus Christ in the first century. It is some sort of mark on your hand or forehead by which you will conduct all commerce. You won’t be able to buy or sell anything without this mark.
The global identification system involving this mark will already be in place before the world leader we call the antichrist comes to power. He will hijack the system and demand that you worship him – otherwise you will not be able to use the system to buy or sell anything.
Ours is the generation that has seen the development of the kind of technology predicted by the Bible. It not only exists but it is being utilized more-and-more – mostly voluntarily.
On December 22nd FoxNews.com posted a story titled, ‘Invisible Bracelet’ for Emergency Health Alerts? ((http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,580855,00.html?test=latestnews))
The nation’s ambulance crews are pushing a virtual medical ID system to rapidly learn a patient’s health history during a crisis – and which can immediately text-message loved ones that the person is headed for a hospital.
The Web-based registry, invisiblebracelet.org, started in Oklahoma and got a boost this fall when the state’s government made the program an optional health benefit for its own employees.
Now the iBracelet attempts to go nationwide as the American Ambulance Association next month begins training its medics, who in turn will urge people in their communities to sign up.
For $5 a year, basic health information and up to 10 emergency contacts are stored under a computer-assigned PIN number that’s kept on a wallet card with your driver’s license, a key fob or a sticker on an insurance card.
… authorized medics can access a Web site that reads the PIN and opens the health info they use to treat. Then, with a push of a button, the medic chooses an area hospital for transport. Simultaneously, the up to 10 people listed to be notified by text or e-mail get that message.
… nearly 100,000 people have enrolled since the service opened in Oklahoma in April, says Noah Roberts of the Tulsa-based Docvia health software company, and the University of Oklahoma is preparing to use it for a campus registry.
Even someone too healthy for those bracelets may have some condition that could help emergency workers make a faster diagnosis, avoid a medication reaction – or track down their next-of-kin faster.
The ultimate goal is an electronic medical record for everyone, available no matter where they are, says Dr. Andrew I. Bern, an ACEP board member and emergency physician in south Florida.
Man, that sounds great! Wouldn’t it be easier, though, to have the information on an implanted microchip? They can do that already, as you know.
We are heading towards the kind of personal identification predicted by the apostle John two thousand years ago – when such a thing was otherwise inconceivable.
We see the signs we are living in the last days but we live knowing that at any moment the Lord could return to resurrect the saints and rapture living believers. The rapture is always imminent. No sign is necessary. Nothing needs yet to be fulfilled before Jesus can come to rescue us.
Get ready, stay ready, keep looking up.
Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
