A two-pronged approach is at work. Strip everyone of their ability to use cash by going all digital. Then, locking people out of the digital world if they don't line up with the system's ideology. The soon-coming man of sin, anti-christ, will no doubt use this system to implement the 666 Mark of the Beast.Doesn't yet explain why Rev 13 says the mark can be placed in the right hand or the forehead. A chip in the hand sure, but a chip in the forehead doesn't make as much sense. The mark is the same. It doesn't change depending on where it is placed. The one mark goes either forehead or hand. I don't buy there being two marks else it would say some would have it in the hand and forehead rather than either or.
 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.
"A growing number of Christians who believe in traditional morality are finding themselves without financial services, both in the U.S. and around the world, as Western leaders engage in "insufferable" actions that resemble secular "religious fundamentalists who are intolerant of other faiths. "Globally, the World Bank decided to cut off all new funding for Uganda over a bill that outlaws homosexual child molestation, knowingly having sex with others while carrying the AIDS virus, and drugging or coercing vulnerable people into nonconsensual gay sex -- acts the bill describes as "aggravated homosexuality." At home, a U.S. bank canceled the bank accounts of a Christian charity that carries out philanthropy in Uganda and the U.S. church that financially supports it." -- Sign Of Things To Come
