Revelation 13: 16-18 "16 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:
17 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.
18 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_1611)
Biometric identification means identifying individuals by their unique bodyfeatures such as, someone's retinapattern, fingerprint, handpattern, voice, etc. So this is pre-eminently suitable to verify someone's identity with a great amount of certainty during financial transactions or accesscontrol to buildings. Since there is quite frequently fraude involved with the current identification means the call for a tamperproof I.D is becoming louder and louder. Consequently, there is a fast growing market of biometric devices. A great disadvantage of these devices however, is that they are (still) relatively expensive. However, the prizes of (computer) peripherals could rapidly drop.
Note that we do not pretend that the devices shown on this page will necessarily be used to scan the Mark from Revelation 13:16-18.This mark is not yet known and according to Revelation it will be placed ON or IN the right hand or forehead. As far as Biometric Identification is concerned, this is not (yet?) the case. However, it is rather obvious that the infrastrucure for this mark is rapidly being build, expanded and perfected. Devices that will be used to scan this mark could be integrated relatively easy into the existing infrastructure. Below a few examples of devices that are on the market today.
I expect that we will hear more about various biometric identification systems in THE NEWS to convince people that it will benefit the security of your financial transactions. They forget to tell you that the ultimate goal is to control the population financially (and accordingly, each and every other way possible)
ID Authentication, Verification, Valedation -- a two-factor system: subdermal number on chip + biometric identifier
You can find an example of a handscanner on this site. Please note that in this picture the right hand is being scanned.
For another example of a handscanner, please follow this link.
Here's also a generation being conditioned to place the right hand under some sort of a scanner, entirely in conformity with the above prophecy.The only thing that lacks here is the Mark.
By clicking here you will be directly linked to the US PATENT&TRADEMARK OFFICE where this invention is registered. Whether this has any prophectic implications remains to be seen, but it's a fact that more and more devices/scanners are on the market today that come close to your (right) hand or forehead.
PATENT GRANTED ON A LASER TATTOO FOR ELECTRONIC TRANSACTIONS!!!!!!
It needs no explaining that the following does have prophetic implications: The US PATENT&TRADEMARK OFFICE recently granted a patent on a lasertattoo especially designed for authentication of electronic transactions
It is registered under number: 5,878,155 By clicking here you will be directly linked to it. This looks very much like the dreaded Mark of The Beast from Revelation 13: 16-18

Microsoft to use fingerprints, eyeballs as passwords to verify a computer user's identity
2 Mei, 2000 Weekend News Today
By Weekend Staff. ++
Source: Yahoo! Reuters
Microsoft Corp. Tuesday took a major step to support biometrics, the security technology that uses fingerprints and eyeballs as an alternative to passwords to verify a computer user's identity. The company acquired biometric authentication technology from I/O Software Inc. and said it will begin incorporating it into its Windows software as early as this summer. Biometrics have long been promoted as a more secure and convenient alternative to passwords, social security numbers or even mothers' maiden names, which can be hard to remember and may easily fall into the wrong hands. Industry experts say Microsoft's move could be pivotal in helping to speed widespread adoption.
Unlike passwords, it is virtually impossible for so-called biometric keys to get into the wrong hands, since the fingerprint is a literally part of the individual user's hand. But while many computer users would happily swap a long list of passwords for a simple fingerprint reader, such biometric technology has until recently been prohibitively costly.
Microsoft says it plans to offer biometrics support to users of its Windows 2000 software by this summer and will fully incorporate the security into Windows in the future. (Ed. note: Yet another step taken to implement some sort of censorship and another attack on your privacy. The day will come that when you want to log on to the internet you will have to place your hand under a scanner so your ISP for example knows exactly who is logging on. And ultimately, you will only be able to get access to the internet when you have the Mark of the Beast. Really, an efficient way to ban christians from the WWW )
