Equation7 wrote:A couple of questions here I would like to take a stab at. The first one, would I implant a microchip in my child? My answer to that is no. I was born with a freedom to come and go as I please while not having to worry if I was being watched by my parents or anyone else. I did a lot of things they would not have approved of. I had my first cigarette at six and was pretty much a drunk by sixteen. Life was very non robotic. We did things at will and enjoyed every minute of it. When my parents tried to intervene it would only cause them grief. I was too numb to feel anything. Anyway, without getting too much into it, my parents knowing of my activities did nothing to change my course. From my experience I do not see a microchip as being beneficial for a child or anyone else. More importantly I would want my children to have the same freedoms that I had growing up even if it means getting into trouble. What fun would it be being a kid if you couldn't commit murder and get away with it?
I think that I should also state here that I do not believe that a microchip is the mark of the beast. The reason why I do not believe that it is the mark is obvious. It is not a mark, let alone the mark of the beast. I do believe it's an evolutionary step towards it, just like the credit card. I take the bible literally here and I believe that the mark will be a visible physical mark, much like a tattoo. It will have a meaning behind it, something that cannot be accomplished by implanting a microchip. It will let allow anyone looking at you know that you belong. My best guess right now is that this mark will be a picture of the symbol that the one world government will adopt. Perhaps its flag or some other symbol it adopts, maybe even a picture of the Antichrist. I think it will be small, probably dime sized. It will be offered but not forced and only after the church is removed.
As for the other question. What will happen to the children during the tribulation? Don't let the bible scholars or any other modern day Pharisee deceive you. Children do not come with an "auto-save feature". There is no age of accountability. If this were so then Christian parents would do well by sacrificing their children before they reach that age, thereby securing their eternal salvation. Not a bad little gift for juniors last birthday. The reality is that God doesn't work that way. When you die your spirit goes back to the Lord, regardless of what age you are. There is nowhere else to go. It's one side of the gulf or the other, no middle ground. The spirit of a child does not return to the Lord in child form but in the exact same way it left God's presence when you were conceived. God knew what you were like before you were even born. God can love or hate a child even before it comes out of the womb. He does not love every child. What happened to the children of Sodom and Gomorrah? Did He take them out with Lot before He poured fire down on them? What happened to the children of Noah's day? Did He squeeze them in kiddie land section of the ark? When He told the Isrealites to conquer a city and spare no one did He say except the children? The same fate awaits the children of the tribulation hour. Imagine a Heaven where millions or billions of children's spirits are present that hate God and His ways. What kind of Paradise would that be?
Luke 21:22-24 (New King James Version)
22 For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. 24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
Secondly, I agree that kids are not automatically saved. Kg, that verse you posted pretty much proves that point. However, I disagree with your statement that God does not love every child. I think he does love every child, and adult. (Romans 5:8) He loves us all, but that doesn't mean he will save us all. I believe he hurts every time anyone is lost.
It's self explanatory. Two brothers were in the womb. God loved one and hated the other.

I believe He loves us all and that's why He sent His Son to die for us. What I was saying is that the Bible indicates babies will be born during the Tribulation which will be a bad thing for those people.

The verses that were quoted from Romans 9 do not say that God hated one and loved the other.
