Wearable Technology Has Brought Us To The Point Of No Return

The following is an NTEB Original Story. Please provide a link back when reposting this.

The indoctrination is almost complete and waiting for the main character to take the stage

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book,even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4

The world as we know it has irrevocably changed in many ways. Nearly 6 years of the Obama reign of lawlessness has wreaked unfixable havoc on our nation. Things that will never be undone, like the Marxist Obamacare that is slowly but certainly easing us off the Constitution as our basis of law. And after 20 full years of the world’s love affair with the personal computer and the Internet, we are about to change again, and it will not be for the better.


There is so much more than you can possibly imagine, click now to see some of it

The march to “always on” is a three-fold deal. Step One was getting us in front of our devices, and getting us to fall in love with them. Have them become an indispensable part of our personal and business lives and routines.  That objective has been fully realized and accomplished. Step Two is happening right now, technology is shifting from being in front of us to being on us. They call it “wearable technology”. Write it down because you are about to be bombarded by it from every aspect of your life. Just as you rarely ever see someone without their “smart device”, soon you will see just about every one wearing their smart device  as a watch, nano-shirt, or beamed on our skin as in the above illustration. The list goes on and on.

Step Three will be the installation of our smart technology inside our bodies. Your pulse and venous system will act as the active recharging elements, and all functions how carried out with mouse and keyboard will be done via eye motions and voice commands.

Read this from Time magazine, and then you tell us if this is all a “conspiracy theory or not. But we already know the answer:

What might post-humanity be like? The paradox of a wearable device is that it both gives you control and takes it away at the same time. Consider the watch’s fitness applications. They capture all data that your body generates, your heart and activity and so on, gathers it up and stores and returns it to you in a form you can use. Once the development community gets through apping it, there’s no telling what else it might gather. This will change your experience of your body. The wristwatch made the idea of not knowing what time it was seem bizarre; in five years it might seem bizarre not to know how many calories you’ve eaten today, or what your resting heart rate is.

But wearables also ask you to give up control. Your phone will start telling you what you should and shouldn’t eat and how far you should run. It’s going to get in between you and your body and mediate that relationship. Wearables will make your physical self visible to the virtual world in the form of information, an indelible digital body-print, and that information is going to behave like any other information behaves these days. It will be copied and circulated. It will go places you don’t expect. People will use that information to track you and market to you. It will be bought and sold and leaked—imagine a data-spill comparable to the recent iCloud leak, only with Apple Watch data instead of naked selfies.

The Apple Watch represents a redrawing of the map that locates technology in one place and our bodies in another. The line between the two will never be as easy to find again. Once you’re OK with wearing technology, the only way forward is inward: the next product launch after the Apple Watch would logically be the iMplant. If Apple succeeds in legitimizing wearables as a category, it will have successfully established the founding node in a network that could spread throughout our bodies, with Apple setting the standards. Then we’ll really have to decide how much control we want—and what we’re prepared to give up for it.

Prepare to be chipped.

  • Isn’t it amazing how God is giving his followers a glimpse of what life is going to be like here on earth while we’re away….Far Away?!

    • carrierwave

      Yea brother, I have reservations to be on the next flight out of here!

    • Bro. Nick

      AMEN Brothers – Along with all of our other
      Brothers and Sisters in “the Lord Jesus Christ”:

      (25) But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
      (26) For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
      (27) For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
      (28) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
      (29) And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
      (Gal 3:25-29 [KJV])

    • Brenda Murphy

      Oh, you’ll be here…unless you die beforehand.

      • Elaine Coker

        No, we Christians will not be here. “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thes 5:9). “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth” (Rev 3:10).
        Who is GOD talking to here? Certainly not the Heathen unbelievers. He is talking to the Blood Bought Remanent Church, those who still believe in the Word for Word Translation of the KJB.
        2 Thessalonians 2:6-8, “And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming.”
        16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
        17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
        Rapture, He’s coming in the clouds for His Church.
        Second Coming, He will plant His feet on the Mount of Olives.
        Nothing could be any clearer. Two different comings.

        • MRH

          @Elaine Coker: According to various scripture, the tribulation is not the wrath, nor the hour of temptation. Also the rapture precedes the end, which is the wrath, likewise does the tribulation. Also the second coming and rapture occur at the same exact time 🙂

          P.S. The rapture/tribulation theories are all flawed in varied ways 😯

        • Bro. Nick

          @ Elaine Coker – I concur with your Scriptural understandings – My very strong suggestion is that no one should depend upon the comments of anyone on a website like this for understanding of what “THE TRUTH” of “THE WORD OF THE LORD” is – and that includes mine!
          There are many posts that express personal understandings and opinions as fact –
          – and they are convinced that theirs is the only correct one
          – despite the fact that someone else has a conflicting understanding that they say is the only correct one! Sound confusing – YES.
          PLEASE REMEMBER WHAT “THE WORD OF GOD” SAYS about confusion:
          “FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF confusion,
          but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”
          (1 Cor 14:33 [KJV])

          My closest CHRISTian Brother who is an ‘uneducated’ God called Pastor in Kenya just led me to read I Kings Chapter 13. It is very clearly written and warned that THE ONLY SOURCE OF ABSOLUTE TRUTH IS “THE WORD OF THE LORD” – for “it is written”:
          “God forbid: YEA, LET GOD BE TRUE,
          but every man a liar”
          (Rom 3:4a [KJV])

          and lean not unto thine own understanding.
          (Prov 3:5-6 [KJV])

  • Bro. Nick

    There are several very important things to consider about these coming technologies written about in this article by “a few”, “the remnant”, “the church of the living God”, true followers of “the Lord Jesus Christ” – CHRISTians.

    How few CHRISTians have considered – or even realize – that there are many more warnings about ‘spiritual deception and falling away’ written by “the Lord Jesus Christ”, all of the authors of the Epistles, and several of the Prophets in the Old Testament in “the truth”, “the word of the LORD”, the Holy Bible [KJV] – in these ‘end-of-the-end times’ we are living in RIGHT NOW – TODAY!
    – Many more times than there are warnings about the ‘physical manifestations’ of earthquakes, wars, pestilences, etc…

    The following Scripture has suddenly come to have an even greater meaning and application to me personally upon reading this article. I would encourage CHRISTians to read, study, think and Biblically meditate upon, and PRAY for undertanding:

    (18) In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
    (19) Quench not the Spirit.
    (20) Despise not prophesyings.
    (22) Abstain from all appearance of evil.


    (24) Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
    (1 Thess 5:17-25 [KJV]) – CAPITALization and emphasis mine – Bro. Nick

    • STL

      Bro. Nick: A long time I saw a painting of a narrow road leading others to the Pealy Gates of Heaven, but next to this road was a super highway leading others to hell, the burning lake of fire.

      Only a few million or so that are alive when the Rapture occur will be on that road to heaven but billions of unrighteous one will be on that Super highway to hell.

      If people do not relized that they need to request Jesus Christ for Salvation, they will be left behind?

      Soon the Rapture will occur and it will be a Mystery to everyone except the Lukewarm Christians and they will feel the lost.

      • Bro. Nick

        @ STL – Good illustration – and just exactly as “the word of the LORD” says – and many of those on the ‘super highway’ are very ‘religious’ and think that they are ‘saved’.
        Where I attend CHRISTian services at, the Pastor gave a very powerful message this morning about the coming Persecution here in ‘Amerika’, and the Rapture – and it fell nearly exclusively on ‘deaf ears’ and ‘cold-hard hearts’ – Oh dear GOD, how tragic:

        (21) ¶ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
        (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
        (23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
        (Matt 7:21-23 [KJV])

        As for me – I continue to pray that there will be yet more and many more – including me – that will ensure our Salvation is in accordance with ‘the Holy Bible way”:
        “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”
        (Phil 2:12 [KJV])

        (16) Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
        (17) For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
        (18) And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
        (19) Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
        (1 Peter 4:16-19 [KJV])

    No one is forcing the wearable technology on you.
    But the younger people will willingly flock to it.

    My computer is pre-2000 and I have no cell phone.

    I’ve lived most of my life without a computer…
    and I can do it again.


  • Carol

    I don’t care about this technology ! I will not be particpating in any of it!!! Not at all curious. The young people will flock to it, I agree. When you have all this different technology it can give you a headache trying to keep up with it all, it’s not worth it either. Not keeping up with the JONES!!!!!I don’t want to be trapped, and bogged down with all the tech in this world.AMEN

  • NeeCeeGee

    sounds like the mark to me

    • MRH

      No mark yet, just a precursor development process 😉

      P.S. All end time wonders are being developed and tested 😯

  • Jeanne

    Ahhhh…after more than six thousand years the Apple once again becomes the forbidden fruit!

    • Kimberly Queener

      Amen Jeanne!!! And did you ever think that WORD would be a software program??? The times we are living in show us that prophecy is coming to fruition…..watch Israel……God will not and cannot bless sin…the USA had better turn back to Him…..

  • frodo baggins

    ‘mark of the beast’ aka 666 indeed must be wearable…something permanent, duh! like this one. a preview. just ironic, the company that pioneers it is called apple.

    • ahh, we’ve come so far, long ago a friend and brother handed me a book, and within this non-descript book was an explanation of gematria. following a sliding scale that starts with A = 6, B = 12, c = 18… Z = 156, the very likely word COMPUTER has a sum of 666… and now we see this 32 years later.. btw, so does SANTA CLAUS

      • MRH

        Did you not know that .www (world wide web) = 666? 😯

  • Bible Reader

    Amazing to see that the company’s logo represents the choice in the tree of knowledge over the tree of life, made in the garden of Eden by our forefather (and every other generation since then including us).

    It is as if the logo says: “We choose knowledge as a means to lift up humanity through technological progress in defiance against God, showing that humanity can live very well independent of God”.

    This is the ultimate rebellion against God’s sovereignty.

    • Bro. Nick

      @ Bible Reader – Thanx for the observation – I hadn’t thought about the subtle symbolic points.

      While written to Saul, the first Jewish King – the following verse sure has direct application to your statement about ‘rebellion’:

      “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.”
      (1 Sam 15:23 [KJV])

    • Brenda Murphy

      Yes, that’s been there for a while, many have not nor ever will see it. Thank you for that post, by the way.

    • MRH

      “This is the ultimate rebellion against God’s sovereignty”

      @Bible Reader: Yes they work much in the dark through symbolism, and they leave their elusive dark marks literally everywhere, but only the spiritually enlightened folk notice them for what they really are 😀

  • STL

    All this mark of 666, is just preparing the world population that this needs to happen to have a better life on earth. Its a control issue.

    • Brenda Murphy

      Yes, controlled by the beast, STL.

    • Brenda Murphy

      The mark of the beast is a real mark……there is no way to be controlled by a symbolic mark…..and the beast will control you by this mark…..it is coming, soon, do not take anything ‘inside’ of you.

      • Simon Alexander

        People can be controlled without having a bar code or micro chip placed on them, all that the powers to be have to do is control your access to your money. We are quickly becoming a cashless society and the banks and powers to be are wanting this to happen within the next six years, whether this happens in the time frame they want is something we’ll have to wait and see. If we all have to pay by credit card for our food etc and there is no cash, what do think could happen if you didn’t go along with the political teachings or religious ideologue of that time? You will go to the supermarket one day scan your groceries put them in the trolley and go to pay for them and find your card has been declined, it’s that simple! The powers to be, will at the push of a button, stop your money at anytime. Look what happened not to long ago when people couldn’t use there food stamps, admittedly the system supposedly was down because of a problem, or were they wanting to see how the people would react at not being able to get food?? People will have to make a decision as to who they will follow, who they will obey if they want to eat, and if that doesn’t work then will come the persecution. When you make that decision as to who you will obey, is when you will receive the mark because that is when you have made the final choice as to whom you will follow. We need to make sure we are following Gods commandments and not man made traditions. God Bless

        • Brenda Murphy

          People are being controlled every day—by their cell phones, video games, TV’s, etc.
          Nothing new under the sun.

          There will always be idols put before God.
          We can bow, or not.
          It’s all up to the individual.

    • MRH

      ” The mark is not a literal mark, it is a symbolic mark just as the beasts and other imagery in Revelation are symbolic”

      @Simon Alexander: Actually the ‘mark’ is both symbolic and literal, and may involve several control point angles 😉

      P.S. Figuring out the unholy puzzle is the challenge and it’s not easy 🙁

      • MRH

        Prophetic imagery is also symbolic and literal, the challenge is figuring out the puzzle, and none so far seem to have all the holy answers 🙁

  • Bro. Nick

    Simon Alexander – Sir, You Prophesy that – ‘The mark is not a literal mark, it is a symbolic mark …’

    Have you ever read and seriously thought about that which is LITERALLY WRITTEN in “the truth”, “the law” “the word of the LORD”, the Holy Bible (KJV)?

    The entire second chapter of 2 Peter is extremely sobering and one that ALL CHRISTians should read and consider:
    (1) But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
    (2) And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
    (3) And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
    (4) For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
    (2 Peter 2:1-4 [KJV])

    (18) For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
    (19) And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
    (Rev 22:18-19 [KJV])

    • Simon Alexander

      Hi Nick, I don’t dispute the scriptures and what you are saying, but not everything in the Book of Revelation is to be taken literally. Such as the beasts that come up out of the sea and earth, we aren’t looking for literal beasts to come out of the sea/earth, they are symbolic and in Daniel we are told what these beasts symbolically represent, Kingdoms/Nations. The same is for the mark of the beast. There are Jewish Rabbis that have Gods commandments written down and have them bound to there foreheads and hands as they too take this to be being something literal. This again is not the case, what God is telling us here is that his laws are to be continuously in our thoughts and minds which is in the forehead and on the hand which means our actions or works. You propose that this mark is literal and is going to be some sort of computer chip or something similar. I would love for someone to show me where the Bible says that the mark is a computer chip, aren’t we just making an assumption about this computer chip? Is this scriptural? The day is coming when we will have to make that decision if we are still alive when the mark of the beast is enforced. I pray that we will not be deceived by Satan and will stand strong and firm on Gods word just as the three Hebrews did by not bowing down to false idols, and Daniel who would not give up his prayer time to pray to the true God. Many people will be deceived in the last days because they are looking for the wrong things. May the Holy Spirit guide us all into all truth. God Bless

      • Brenda Murphy

        Even though there are symbols all thru-out the Bible, we have to discern what is literal and what is symbolic. Yes, we have to let the Spirit of God guide us, and not our own imaginings, or man’s doctrine.

        God will give you understanding if you pray for it. 🙂

  • Bro. Nick

    Simon Alexander – Sir, You are not addressing that which I specifically wrote about which was – ‘You Prophesy that – ‘The mark is not a literal mark, it is a symbolic mark …’’

    My comment was only to ask if you have you ever read and seriously thought about the warnings of being
    – a “false teacher”, a “false prophet”
    – OR of the adding to – OR the taking away from the words which are WRITTEN in “the truth”, “the law” “the word of the LORD”, the Holy Bible (KJV)?

    2 Peter 2:1-4 [KJV] – AND – Rev 22:18-19 [KJV]

  • Anna;
    Is your temporary sexual fulfillment of perversion really worth the price of an eternal torment in a hell of no escape? I pray that you will recognize your sin, the penalty that awaits, and ask Jesus to forgive you. If you wish to “connect” with someone I encourage you to “connect” with someone in your area who is able to help you meet Jesus and change your life into something that will bring glory to God. That is your only salvation.

    • MRH

      Sorry, there is no Anna here, so probably a spam which NTEB deleted? 😉

      P.S. I’ve seen a fair amount of spamming lately, and easy to do as anyone can post comments.

    • Charles

      I don’t know who Anna is, but the one who needs to pray for forgiveness is you. Jesus would be disgusted at your judgmental, petty, holier than thou attitude. Only God judges – not man. Get off your high horse and worry about your own issues, Dennis. The fact that you badger women on website comment sections tells me you probably have enough of your own to keep you pretty busy.

  • I’d adore to retire where air conditioning is not needed, and a dog park with benches is nearby.

  • Charles

    You guys seriously crack me up. I needed a good laugh. Yes, wearable technology is truly the devil’s work! I remember, John 3:17 says, “Thou shalt not wear an iPod like watch or thou shall be damned!” You all need to worry less about what other people do and start remembering that the God you believe in wants you to be happy and love others, not judge and worry.

  • Maj. A. Wilkinson

    Technology was supposed to serve mankind

    But, now it has reached the point that mankind is the slave

    Be aware of sub-liminal technology being used in TV, especially the opening sequences seen before news with circles and half circles moving to induce trance like behavior from the viewers, it’s easy to spot when you look for the hypnotic graphics that mess with your alpha and beta brainwaves,that’s why digital was mandated universally.
    It’s much easier, seamless and faster to do specialized graphics with digital processing.
