Jesus spoke in parables in the three so-called synoptic Gospels – Matthew, Mark and Luke – sometimes he really seems to think aloud:

Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God?” – Mark.4:30

But in the Gospel of John, he sort of abandoned the “liken-unto” kind of talk, and start to express “being” more frequently. He does not say “I am likened unto a wine”, but he says:

I am ..the wine” – John 15: 1

This kind of mysterious transitions between what something or someone is compared to, and what something or someone is, one may find examples of also in the Song of Solomon:

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” – Song of Solomon 2:1

The document highlights the number of obtained communications increased in 2012 by 248% for Skype – leading the notes to remark there was ‘exponential growth in Skype reporting; looks like the word is getting out about our capability against Skype’. There was also a 131% increase in requests for Facebook data, and 63% for Google.”

What comes out of it?

The Book of Revelation 13: 16 – 17

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.

What about microchips? Are they a mean to help people, or the opposite: a mean to accomplish a not so desirable goal:

” ..there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.”  (Ecclesiastes 8:9)

That it’s really a serious business with microchips can be verified in many ways. Not least by a court case in Texas recently, because  a 15-year old student was barred from her studies after having refused to participate in the peculiar “microchip-experiment” that was – and is – going on in the High School she was attending, until January 18.

  A few articles gives a glimpse of the story –

 Quotation from Mashable.com January 9:

“John Jay High School in San Antonio, Texas began requiring students to wear badges with RFID tags to track students’ on-campus movements at the beginning of the fall semester.

Andrea Hernandez, 15, refused to wear the badge on religious grounds, claiming it was the ‘mark of the beast,’ according to Wired. She was suspended for disobeying the new rule and later sued the district. A temporary injunction allowed her to continue her studies untracked.
