The Mark of the Beast

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 spiritually 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 (John 16:33).

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 (please see my article “Abomination of Desolation”, specifically the section titled “Abomination of Desolation Word Study”).

Who is the Beast?

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 or spiritual death of Christians.

The beast system is worldly mankind that is influenced by devils. Satan is a spirit and his devils (which are in the carnal flesh of man) only operates among mankind through our human vessels. Satan and the fallen angels are bound in the abyss during this church age (see this article), but his devils have always been working among man (see the Word Study in this article for details on how the Satanic kingdom works among men).

The beast of the sea in Revelation 13 is the antichrist system. The beast of the earth is the false prophet system. These two clash heads in Revelation 17:17 which destroys Mystery Babylon and brings on the battle of Armageddon. Details are in these articles: “Identification of Antichrist, False Prophet & Mystery Babylon” and “Event’s of Earth’s Last Age.”

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 (the English translation that is closest to the original Hebrew and Greek), and is God’s true inspired Word.

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. This is a literal actual conspiracy done by evil men that is documented in the bible in the book of Ezekiel — they are hiding Satan from those who call themselves “Christians.” See my article “Conspiracy of Her Prophets” for more information.

Could a physical mark, like an invisible black-light tattoo, roll out in the last 42 months of earth’s existence? Of course it could, but any physical mark is just deception that is hiding the true Satanic beast from you (see this article for details). No physical mark is going to condemn your soul unless receiving it requires pledging your allegiance/worship to a human man/antichrist spirit. It is who you worship and serve that will either save or destroy you.

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.

Many antichrists and the false prophet system have always been here and they seek to cause your spiritual death (1 John 2:18). The falling away spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 is spiritual — it is people turning their hearts toward the world, or toward false Christianity, believing they are righteous when they are only self-righteous which is an abomination to God.

Examples: The Christmas celebration was banned in the U.S.’s Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1659 because it was a satanic practice. Jesus’ birthday is September, 11, 3 A.D. Easter is sun god worship and Jesus was not resurrected on a Sunday.

The world is deceiving most people — many who call themselves Christians aren’t even aware of the manipulation because Mystery Babylon has already brainwashed them into believing that what’s good (denying self) is not of God/evil and what’s evil (worldly acceptance) is good.

For more on how self-professed “Christians” have been brainwashed to their spiritual death, see my article “Seven False Teachers in the Church.”

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 kingdom 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.

Satan/the Antichrist will come LOOKING LIKE A CHRISTIAN. Today’s antichrists are charming, sweet, kind, excellent conversationalists, do good works, and are master manipulators who secretly destroy God’s redeemed.

The part of the false prophet system that is effective in deceiving Christians is rooted in false Christianity — it is a works-based system of self-preservation that makes serving the world look like you are serving God and Jesus Christ. We must detach ourselves from all that is of the world. The works that we do that are not of the world can only be done through our new agape hearts which we receive through Jesus Christ, so ask yourself frequently “am I serving the brethren in love?” and “would Jesus be doing this?” and “am I doing this to worship my Father and Christ or to gain favor for myself?”

Is The Mark Here Yet?

The fallen nature of our cursed human vessels has the mark — the only thing that removes it is salvation through Jesus Christ. The only way we keep from receiving the world’s mark again is by obeying God the Father and His commandments and laws that He has written in our hearts and minds. To be without God’s laws is to be marked by the beast/the worldly system.

The antichrist spirit and their system has ALWAYS been here desecrating all that is good in the world (see this article for proofs). 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. We are told that the beast/mankind causes ALL to receive his mark (Revelation 13:16)… only Jesus Christ can remove it.

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). See my article “God Created Evil” for more on predestination, hell and eternity.

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 received the Holy Spirit baptism through the blood of Jesus Christ, you read and study His word, die to self and take up your cross daily, and never deny your testimony of Jesus Christ to anyone or for any reason; 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.

I pray that God will bless and keep you all in these last days. Amen.
