“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.” – Revelation 13:16-17
Over the course of the past year, we got a preview of how easy it will be for the Antichrist to mandate his infamous Mark on all citizens of the world. Living in Michigan, I witnessed firsthand just how easily a population will get on board with being forced to put something on their body simply because their government orders them to. The vast majority of my state has followed our tyrant governor’s Mask Mandate, which violates our 14th Amendment rights to personal liberty. Think about it, if you don’t have liberty over your own body, then what freedom do you really have? The answer: none.
On top of that, it was rumoured that the vaccines being distributed for the Coronavirus contain enzymes known as “Luciferase.” Some have even said that it alters your DNA. Scary stuff.
While the masks and vaccine are not THE Mark of the Beast, I’m astonished at just how easily the ignorant citizens of this nation have agreed to putting something on their body simply because their government leaders tell them they must – or to putting something in their body that contains the name of Satan himself! It just goes to show how the entire secular world will have no problem taking the Antichrist’s mark on or in their bodies.
In this 9th installment of my series on the Book of Revelation, I’m going to share with you some of what I wrote about the Mark of the Beast from my book, THE COMING SIGNS OF OUR TIMES. So, let’s jump right into it…
Before I get into details of this mark, I want you to consider one thing if you ever get so desperate as to entertain receiving it – Jesus is coming back down soon. He is coming to destroy Antichrist, the False Prophet, and Satan. So, the earthly life that you preserve through accepting their mark will only buy you about 40 more months of lifebreath. After that, you’ll have to spend eternity in Hell. If that sounds like a good tradeoff to you, then you need to have your head checked!
On the flipside, if you stand strong in your faith and refuse the mark, you’ll spend eternity in God’s Heaven which becomes the new Jerusalem. Will you choose 40 more months of living in this wicked world and then an eternity in fiery torment? Or does living with the possibility of martyrdom so you can spend eternity with your loved ones in Paradise sound better? This isn’t a game show, but I would be choosing Door #2!
I believe this mark is just another way for the devil to imitate God. First, he will imitate the Holy Trinity – Satan in place of the Father, Antichrist in place of the Son, and the False Prophet in place of the Holy Spirit. Next, the Antichrist rides in on a white horse (as does Jesus) and masquerades as the “prince of peace” (which we all know to be Jesus). The False Prophet duplicates the miracles of God wrought by the Two Witnesses. Now, he and the Antichrist will force all citizens of the earth to take a mark of the name or number of the Beast in their foreheads or right hands – the same exact spots on the body that God has used to mark His faithful servants.
“Thou shalt bind them (commandments of the LORD) for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.” – Deuteronomy 6:8
“And the Lord said, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.” – Ezekiel 9:4
“The angel said, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.” – Revelation 7:3
“I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.” – Revelation 14:1
Since the devil has always wanted to be like God, he creates counterfeits for virtually everything associated with Him. He will even incarnate Antichrist in God’s Holy Temple, in the Holy City of Jerusalem, and sit upon the Throne that has been prepared for Jesus. It is there, in the LORD’s house, where he declares himself to be God. How brazen he will be against the Most High! All the while, the LORD laughs from Heaven – knowing Satan’s time is short and running out.
Throughout history, we know that the mark of God given to the servants of the LORD has been either His Name (YHWH) or the symbol of the Cross (the Hebrew letter Taw). It’s interesting to note that YaHWeH’s name, in the Hebrew, resembles three sevens (777). So, His mark could be rendered a number, like Satan with the 6-6-6. Seven is the number of God, and it symbolizes holiness and perfection. Six is the number of man, and symbolizes sin and imperfection. Satan’s mark will bear the name of the Beast, or his number. Since John mentioned the name and number apart from the mark itself, there may be an actual symbol (antithetical to the Cross) like a pentagram – serpent – or even an upside down cross.
In the world of Bible Prophecy, there are three widely held theories as to what this mark could be. #1: A barcode tattooed on the body, containing 6-6-6 in it. #2: Implantable microchip placed inside of the body bearing the name or number of the Beast. This is why I emphasize “in” when I speak of the location of the mark, regarding the forehead or right hand. King James version Bible is regarded as one of the most accurate renderings of God’s Word on the planet, and specifically uses “in” – never “on” the hand or forehead. This sounds like a microchip implanted underneath the skin. Given that we already put microchips in pets and are using biometrics at jobs, on our smartphones, or in the security systems of homes, this scenario for the mark seems the most plausible.
It would be the easiest to get average secular people on board with. All Antichrist and his False Prophet would have to do is say that the implanted mark will protect children so they will never be lost, detects or prevents disease, eliminates need for vaccines and shots, is a safeguard against terrorism, and makes lives easier by eliminating credit cards, cash, and membership cards. I would bet that every important piece of information in someone’s life would be in the chip – health, financial, location, and more. Most people will love this for the convenience aspect alone. Don’t fall for it!
That will do it for this week’s preview, but I wanted to share something that backs up that last paragraph. Bill Gates was floating the idea of the Covid-19 vaccine containing a tiny microchip which could be used to track your “location.” Scientists were saying that it could also contain your “health information” and preemptively alert your health care provider of any disease forming in your body – which would in essence be “detecting and preventing diseases” and “eliminating the need for other vaccines in the future.” WOW. Talk about the Holy Spirit writing my book for me! I penned those words in the book about one year before Coronavirus emerged on the world scene.
To read what else I had to say about the Mark, including why theory #3 involves the religion of Islam, go out and grab my book on Amazon today. Next week’s installment will deal with the mysterious Two Witnesses of the Tribulation Hour, so don’t miss it. Share this far and wide so that your family and friends will not be easily led like sheep to take the Mark of Satan. It will have eternal consequences!
“If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.” – Revelation 14:9-10
