Let’s begin by bringing our attention to what God says is NOT the Mark of the Beast:
“There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.” ~Mark 7:15
What this verse is saying is that there is nothing that can enter into a man, or anything that exists outside of a man, that can defile him. There is nothing on this earth that can defile the temple of God which is our physical bodies (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). The blood of Jesus has defeated all that is of this world.
Because God resides within us, He warns us to stay vigilant and sober (1 Peter 5:8). Being vigilant means we must become watchmen and not allow ourselves to be led away from Christ by the words or doings of devils. Being sober is to remain in a healthy state of mind — we should never partake in anything that would alter our reasoning, judgment or personality.
Description of the Mark of the Beast
Revelation 13:16-18 gives us the description of the Mark:
“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. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”Revelation 13:16-18
The Mark is going to be IN our right hand and IN our foreheads. This is the translation of the 1611 King James Bible which is God’s true inspired Word (and the English translation that is closest to the original Hebrew and Greek).
Inside the forehead is the frontal lobe where our reasoning and decision-making takes place. Are we going to believe and worship like the worldly, or choose to believe in and worship God our sovereign Creator?
Our right hand represents who and what we serve. What we do with our hands is either contributing to or working against the beast system. Are our hands praising God and lifting up His people, or lifting up the beast system?
Making people believe that we should be looking for a future physical mark to be rolled out after a man takes over a physical Jewish temple is their way of disguising what the true mark is.
Could a physical mark, like an invisible black-light tattoo, roll out in the last 42 months of earth’s existence? Anything is possible, but that would be too obvious… Satan is crafty and seeks to deceive.
The Mark Is Spiritual In Nature
1 Corinthians 2:13 says: “Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.”
We must compare the spiritual with the spiritual. The word “mark” in Greek has the same meaning as the word “seal” — it means “stamp” which is placed in our hearts and minds. God’s seal is spiritual and so is the antichrist’s seal.
Spiritual Significance of 666
The number 6 symbolizes labor in the bible (God worked 6 days; man works 6 days; etc).
The mark is in our mind (who we worship) and right hand (who we work for).
Do we labor for Jesus Christ and God’s purpose for our lives, or are our works of the world?
Revelation 13:17 explains that there will come a time when we will no longer be able to participate in society (“buy or sell”) unless we are either working immorally, or worshiping the things of the world, or love evil and wickedness.
In summary, the number 6 symbolizes our works which are both physical and — most importantly — spiritual.
The Triple Use of 6 or 666
The triple use of 6 represents the triune antichrist. Satan can only imitate God and does so with the triunity.
Our God works in man through the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
The antichrist works among man by way of Satan/the dragon, the Antichrist/Beast, and the false prophet (Revelation chapter 13). The false prophet is mankind’s “enforcers” and “influencers” who cause the worldly to worship the first beast/Antichrist.
A Single Man or Mankind?
Revelation 13:18 reads that the mark of the beast is “the number of A man.” However, in the original Greek texts, there is no letter “A” here. The verse actually reads “the number of man.” The dragon, Satan, will give his power to mankind/the false prophet/the beast in order to persecute and cause the physical death of Christians.
Is The Mark Here Yet?
The antichrist spirit and their system has ALWAYS been here desecrating all that is good in the world. They have poisoned our food, our air and our water with chemicals, and they prevent us from living freely on this earth by way of property taxes and use of their currency to pay them.
Our world is owned and operated by evil and is designed for the purpose of separating God’s children from Him (they will FAIL in this regard as God predestined His children before the creation of the world — see Romans 8:30). All things work together for good for those that love God (Romans 8:28).
Our freedom from bondage is spiritual and given to us by God’s grace ONLY through the blood of Jesus Christ (John 3:16). Our physical body is God’s temple (1 Corinthians 6:19). God sanctifies every unclean thing that enters His temple through Jesus Christ and prayer (1 Timothy 4:5).
THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST HAS OVERCOME EVERYTHING IN THIS WORLD (John 16:33).
Matthew 24:24 warns us that false messiahs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders so as to deceive even the elect. But if you worship God the Father ONLY, have been baptized in the Holy Spirit through the blood of Jesus Christ, you read and study His word, and never deny your testimony of Jesus Christ; then you will recognize what causes “the mark” and the Holy Spirit will convict you to avoid it, just as He convicts us every time we walk outside of God’s will for us.
May God bless and keep you all in these last days.
