Biometric Scanning

The ‘Fuse’ has been ‘lit’; …5 …4 …3 …2 … First commercial biometric payment cards issued in France. Major commercial launches of biometric payment cards would begin this year, among a number of signals from companies involved in the projects that timelines for commercial adoption of the technology are moving up.

Revelation 13:16-17 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

BNP Paribas is expected to launch a new biometric bank card this fall in significant numbers, according to Le Parisien, which Fingerprint Cards has announced includes its technology. The fingerprint-enabled payment card will be offered to holders of the bank’s Premier or Gold cards.

Fingerprint Cards linked to the article in a Tweet noting the card features “biometrics by Fingerprints,” and Le Parisien reports that Thales as the card’s technology integrator.

BNP Paribas Electronic and Innovative Payments Manager Jean-Marie Dragon told Le Parisien that a first batch of between 10,000 (5+5) and 15,000 (5+5+5) Visa Premier biometric cards will be offered this fall. The cost of the cards was not disclosed.

Other French banks are closing in on launches of biometric cards as well. Crédit Agricole Touraine Poitou Regional Bank is planning to launch fingerprint payment cards at three regional banks before the end of the year, and a test involving hundreds of employees of Société Générale has been running for over a year. A spokesperson for Société Générale said the bank sees the cards’ potential, but the technology and simplicity of the card require further improvement.

Thales VP of Payment Cards Sylvie Gibert notes that Thales (and Gemalto prior to the completion of its acquisition by Thales) have tested hundreds of pilot projects in countries including Switzerland, the UK , Cyprus and Lebanon.

A contactless biometric card featuring technology from Thales and Fingerprint Cards was certified by Mastercard at the beginning of the year, a year after Gemalto selected Fingerprint Cards’ T-Shape sensor and biometric software platform to power its fingerprint-enabled payment cards.

Fingerprint Cards CEO Christian Fredrikson said weeks ago during a presentation to analysts that major commercial launches of biometric payment cards would begin this year, among a number of signals from companies involved in the projects that timelines for commercial adoption of the technology are moving up. Zwipe also announced a small-scale manufacturing order for its fingerprint payment card platform earlier this month.

Card payments represent 60 (6) percent of all transactions in France, according to the report, and demand for contactless technology has only increased with concerns about COVID-19 transmission through shared surfaces.

“The appetite was already strong before the Covid but since then, the requests of banks to equip their customers are even more numerous,” Gibert told Le Parisien, per Google translate.

The French Association of Banking Users (Afub) President warned consumers not to be lulled by the ease of the cards’ use into increasing household debt.

Fingerprint Cards Chairman of the Board and former CEO Johan Carlström Tweeted that the Nilson report has forcast 29 billion payment cards will be in circulation by the end of 2023. With a replacement time of between two and three years, this means the addressable market for biometric payment cards could top 10 billion annually, and Carlström says the company believes most if not all will leverage biometrics eventually.

The ‘numbers and the narrative’ don’t lie. Neither does God Word lie.

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Revelation 3:10 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.
