Although one must always be careful when identifying current events as part of end times prophecy, the links between what the Bible says will happen in the earth's last days and what the EU is proposing are certainly worth examining. Granted, an electronic ID is a big leap from the “Mark of the Beast” described in Scripture, but it's conceivable that the practice could lead to some form of identification not unlike the infamous “Mark”:
“To sum it up, the EU wants to monitor everything Europeans do on-line by having all their Internet activities linked to a government ID which will annihilate on-line anonymity.
The program has already drawn comparisons to the ‘Mark of the Beast’ from the Book of Relevation.
‘And the second beast required all people small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark—the name of the beast or the number of its name,' Revelation 13:16 read, and it’s plausible the EU will eventually propose an implantable, biometric ID.
Furthermore, Mr. Ansip is from Estonia, a former communist country which has the most advanced mandatory ID system in the world.”
