Right Hand

I saw a hand wearable “smart” keyboard that controlled our computer interactions with the right hand.

Given… the right hand tends to be the dominant hand of most people.

Computer mice… smart phones… iPads… touch screens on newer cars… are generally held or controlled by the right hand.

Where else is the right hand mentioned?

The right hand is referenced in… righteousness—how we’re upheld… saved… if the Lord Jesus Christ is our Savior.

Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. 10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41

32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. 33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. 34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, Acts 2

The right hand is referenced in… how one is condemned to the Lake of Fire if they accept Satan as their lord—they worship, trust in, and love his ways.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 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: 17 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. Revelation 13

The right hand is referenced in regard to… fellowship.

(For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision. Galatians 2

Does not the right hand represent Life… or… death—fellowship with?

With the mark of the beast on the right hand, is the spirit of antichrist… Satan… providing a fake copy of True Salvation that only comes from the Lord Jesus Christ?  If one takes the mark, they’re deceived out of Eternal Life.

Who do we extend our right hand and our mind [forehead] to fellowship [trust] with—is it the Lord Jesus Christ… or… the antichrist, Satan?

I’m not saying the right hand controlled devices mentioned are the mark of the beast… just the function and location continues to reinforce the direction we’re headed.

If our trust is in social media and technology to survive in the world… where a social score is being applied to… will we bow to it to receive a favorable score to access better… and maybe, any at some point… services and privileges.

From the Josh Hawley article… The social media economy incentivizes addiction by design. These companies have, as Senator Hawley argued, built their business models around “attention arbitrage.” Facebook and Instagram are in the business of selling attention, and they have every incentive to concentrate and manage as much of that attention they possibly can. These interfaces aren’t designed for community or conversation or expression—or any of these aspects of social life they brand themselves as cultivating. They are designed to keep our attention.

The term used is… attention arbitrage.  Who’s getting our attention?

Whose bread I eat… his song I sing. ~ German Proverb

Said another way… what are you investing in?

24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.                         31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6

Luke 12:13-48
