It looks like Biblical prophecy is being unveiled before our eyes.
In Revelation, it says the beast “causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name”.
Well, Amazon has just announced they will use palm scanners at one of its Whole Foods stores in Seattle.
The palm scanners will allow customers to pay with a simple wave of their hand.
I don’t think Amazon is the beast in Revelation but I do believe that this technology is going to be normalized to the masses so when the mark does come it won’t be seen as anything out of the ordinary for those who aren’t steeped in God’s Word.

CNN reported Amazon’s new palm scanners:
Amazon will let customers at some Whole Foods stores pay with simple wave of their hands.
The company announced Wednesday it is bringing palm scanners to one of its Whole Foods stores in Seattle, with plans to roll out the new payment system to eight stores in the Seattle area in the coming months. Customers will hold their hands above the scanner for a contact-free payment method.
The scanners are already available at one of those Seattle stores — its Madison Broadway location. Amazon plans to expand availability further after this initial test run.
To use the service, customers will give Whole Foods their credit or debit card information to link their palm print. They can chose to use a different payment method, such as cash, check or other credit card, in subsequent visits.

Amazon rolls out PAY-BY-PALM at select Whole Foods stores near its Seattle HQ https://t.co/VOKGtcUmHc

The Daily Mail didn’t stay silent and chipped in with these details:
Amazon will let customers pay for their groceries at Whole Foods locations in Seattle with a swipe of their palms.
The online shopping giant, which acquired Whole Foods in 2017, is rolling out pay-by-palm technology at some grocery stores near Amazon’s headquarters to make paying quicker and more convenient.
The technology, called Amazon One, lets shoppers scan the palm of their hand and connect it to a credit card or Amazon account.
After the initial set up, which Amazon claims takes less than a minute, shoppers can scan their hand at the register to pay for groceries without having to open their wallets.
Should we be worried about what palm scanners could eventually lead to?
