Would you accept a universal digital identity?

The ID2020 Alliance is a global group that aims to create a universal digital identity for everyone on earth. They want this to be a globally recognized identity for everyone from birth to death. Microsoft is an alliance partner and an article in Windows Central asks if this will become a global mandate?

The article also poses questions like: “What happens to those individuals who are unwilling to participate? Will they be persecuted?… Especially since nonparticipants in this system would be unable to buy or sell goods or services.” It also considers what form a universal digital identity may take, whether it would be wearable or an implant or “some form of digital tattoo”.

Could Microsoft’s universal digital identity be used for evil?

Dan Corner of Evangelical Outreach believes such universal digital identity strikes a striking similarity to the Biblical mark of the beast, which he says is most alarming:

“He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666. (Revelation13:16-18)

Dan believes that “Our world has radically changed since 2020 and is speeding along towards a cashless, digitally-ruled monetary system controlled to such a tight degree, that one’s complete financial transactions will be terminated unless he or she fully complies with the system. He echoes the warning from the Book of Revelation that there will be no rest for those who worship the beast and his image or for anyone who receives the mark of his name.

“Coming in due time will be the ‘war on the saints’ (Revelation 13:7)” Dan warns, “with multitudes of righteous people from around the globe wisely refusing the mark of the beast and remaining faithful to Jesus until the end. “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.”

As Jesus promised: “I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.” (Revelation 3:11).

    This would be the ultimate totalitarian tool to track and control every human on earth. Everyone would effectively be a slave to those who control the system. We must NEVER allow this to happen.

    Digital identities already exist in China, it’s called WeChat. WeChat is a program that Chinese people use on their mobile phones to chat, order food, buy stuff online, pay for stuff in a store etc. It is a digital identity. WeChat is also heavily monitored by Artificial Intelligence (AI) automatons (robots) and if you break their rules they can deny you access in a heart beat! I have WeChat on my phone to chat with my Chinese lady friend. But we also use Skype. It sounds like we need to get used to farming and doing things for ourselves and gathering food from God’s nature. I bet God will provide food!

    Digital identities are already pervasive in the world. If you have a Global Entry card or TSA Pre or any credit card or electronic medical files or file taxes or use a cel phone or……Can information be used for illegal purposes, absolutely. But so can all your current electronic devices like credit cards. They would be a perfect form of voter ID, travel ID, verification of education or health, etc. The sooner the better.
