A Swedish tech company has released a rice-sized microchip that can be implanted under the skin and used as a COVID-19 passport. Some in the Christian community are calling the microchip a precursor to the mark of the beast, which is foretold in the book of Revelation.
The book of Revelation tends to make people nervous. There’s a lot in there that we can’t wrap our minds around. Consequently, Revelation is often read with some measure of fear and uncertainty. Alternatively, some Christians (including pastors!) ignore it altogether.
But at its core, Revelation is a book of hope that is extremely relevant to our lives today.
