The use of Smart Cards or those containing microprocessors and accessible memory is about to expand dramatically in the U.S. While many countries have issued smart card ID’s or smart card payment systems, the U.S. has lagged behind. Now MasterCard has developed a plan to roll out smart cards to replace magnetic stripe-type credit cards and debit cards. Visa also is working to do the same. The prophecies concerning the Mark of the Beast anticipate a move toward a cashless society just before Christ returns, and the smart card revolution is a major step in that direction.
