The Mark of The Beast

So I’ve just reached my 666 th view here on the blog. What better reason to discuss the Mark of The Beast!!! Silly reason I know, but its just as good an excuse as any reason so here we go.

What is the mark of the beast? Revelation gives us 5 distinct clues: Revelation 13:16-18

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. 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.

  1. Everyone will be required to have it. it will be forced on us.
  2. It has something to do with money.
  3. It goes on the right hand or forehead. (perhaps its optional where you put it)
  4. It will be some kind of mark or label to it.
  5. 666 will have something to do with the man issuing it out.

There is a little bit more the bible tells us later about this mark.

(Rev. 14: 9) God will declare judgement on all who take the mark

(Rev 16: 2) An angel will pour out a bowl and all who received the mark get festering sores.

In all this there is the constant reference to ‘Those who receive the mark, AND worshiped the image of the beast’. By Revelation 20: 4 Those who didnt have the mark went to heaven, those who did went to hell.

 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Heres the scary thing, all this actually sounds very possible- I know many are convinced we are coming to this time. Something that is such a blessing about this prophecy is the way it’s worded to us. God makes certain things in revelation somewhat vague as if to say he wants this to ‘Run its Course’ without anyone being able to interfere ahead of time. At the same time, he gives us a very clear set of criteria to look for, when the time comes so we as believers can avoid his wrath and judgement.

There isn’t much ‘symbolism’ with the mark of the beast at all, while 666 might seem important, it really isn’t. How obvious should it be to you the day its announced “You have to take this thing in your hand or forehead to buy or sell anything. If you don’t you will be killed” my guess here is the first 4 things should spell this out to you perfectly, that thing they want you to take IS the mark of the beast. Since when has humanity ever required such a curious mark under such harsh terms? How dumb do you have to be not to connect the dots when this obvious event will occur?

If we look at the way the verse mentions 666

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.

To me this sounds like an optional thing about it to look for- as the man wont be very well known (or apparent) to most people. That says alot in itself actually, it tells me the Beast of the Sea will be operating behind closed doors- he may not even be in the public spotlight- indeed this is constant with how Satan and his agents have always worked. Lets pick the Beast of the Sea apart. Revelation 13:1-10

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Now we see the beast of the Earth: Revelation 13: 11-13

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 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.

Wow what a mouthful right, but again we see some very distinct clues that qualifies someone to be a Beast of the Sea:

  1. He will be very blasphemous
  2. Satan will give him power (the dragon is satan)
  3. There will be a wound on his head, very badly but now its healed
  4. People will worship Satan and praise his creation of the beast. (Whats funny is the way they worship the beast. they ask; “Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” as if they are worshiping him out of fear).
  5. he will reign 42 months and blaspheme God the whole time.
  6. There is a tabernacle (there has only been 2 tabernacles, suggesting a third one is coming or perhaps another kind of reference to the Bible or Gods house)
  7. He will kill Christians possibly Jews, yet here the bible tells us don’t worry God will deal with him.

Beast of the Earth

  1. The beast of the Earth will come and also have the great power of Satan,
  2. This beast will tell everyone to worship the Beast of the Sea. (it sounds a bit like tag team and reenforcing the first beast).
  3. There will be some kind of Image, like fire from the sky. It will Speak, it will have life (probably animated) and everyone has to worship him.
  4. Both Beasts will control the world

See what I am saying earlier about working behind the scenes. The beast of the sea is somewhere in the background, while the other beast is doing all the work. There is always the blue collar guy isn’t there :-/ . Also there is a specific time frame laid out 42 months is 3.5 years. in the Jewish calender (which this could be based on) has 11 months to a year, bringing it not far off to 3.8 years. We also know there are plans in Israel laid out already to build the third temple. There are places like The Temple Institute who boast to already have the construction materials, cloths and props, and blueprints set aside- all they need is the Israeli government approval to tear down the Dome of the Rock and rebuild. That day may very well come lets say if Israel wasn’t in a 2 state solution. (That should be your first and obvious red flag, when Israel no longer tolerates Muslims, OR when Muslims tell the Jews the site belongs to them, not Allah- Either case will come as a very big deal and very well known world headlines).

Yet I find myself questioning the possibility if it is a reference to earlier temples, aka The Bible- specifically the old testament. Or perhaps a metaphor for the church, since the tabernacle was the house of God- now we have Churches. Both theories could be supported by the beast obvious animosity towards Christians, we could even speculate the Vatican is the new testament version of the tabernacle. Puzzling, but I know my God doesn’t like convoluted metaphors, or double speak- Truley i’m sold on something more literal, at best were talking about past temples in the Bible not the Vatican. Preferably, I want to see a third temple in place for conviction.

Of all the silly people to accuse as the antichrist the current Idea is Obama. The president or Prime Minister I admit is a good start but keep in mind;

First Obama has reigned for more then 3.5-3.8 years (Yes people are that stupid to let this happen). Second, Obama hasn’t had any debilitating head injuries. Third, He can be pretty blasphemous, but if he were killing Christians it would be noticeable. Fourth, you could say he is A antichrist but he isnt THE antichrist- which is why I say we need to get into the habit of calling this what the bible calls it “Beast of the Sea”. The Bibles definition of ‘Anti-Christ’ is broad and general, basically anyone who denies Jesus is a antichrist (1 John 2:22). And it says many will come and has always come(1 John 2:18). The only book in the bible that even mentions the word ‘Antichrist’ is in John. None of the sequence of events here match Obama’s presidency, or Clinton, or Kennedy, or the Prime minister of England. It seems they are just bad leaders, who need gods gift of wisdom. And a nation to think before they vote [Coughs] or atleast pray their leaders will come to christ in huge public displays [coughs again]. (Though I wasn’t alive then I kinda like Kennedy :-p).

What I am saying is we need more credibility in who we pin the title of this on. It isn’t good enough to pick any random bad leader, there is a specific set of criteria laid out, and at least give the man a chance to be born first. Who ever that might be. Conspiracy theory based on lies only makes you and the bible look like an idiot.

666 is Bismillah

So here is an interesting theory I came across, many dont know it originated from Walid Shoebat. The mark of the beast is Bismillah which means Praise Allah. There are some obvious holes with this that is worth pointing out. Number 1 he did not actually use the oldest Greek Bible in the world (as he originally claimed). The oldest Greek Bible in the world (for those who follow my blog know) Is Codex Sinaiticus. It comes to us from the 4th century and is available online via photograph- unedited or censored, never touched by evil Catholics wanting to cover up secrets in the bible. Praise be to God!! (I have to say it because of so much conspiracy theorists need to know, the bible doesn’t rely on the Vatican keeping all the records)

Getting back to the point. Shoebat tells us “Six hundred threescore and six” spells in Greek the same thing as the Arab word for Bismillah. As Illustrated below.

666
Top is Bismillah in Arabic, Bottom is Six hundred threescore and six in Greek

This is true, all we have to do is rotate the middle letter and we seem to have a match. Here is the problem, When we turn to Codex Sinaiticus. Revelation 13: 18 where the verse in question is referenced we see “εϲτιν εξακοϲιαι εξηκο” This translated to English means “Six Hundred three score Six” what you see in the image to the left comes 200 years later from the unknown texts Shoebat provides (he never tells us the manuscript he used). The Greeks began writing things with a different dialect by then- Simply so “Six hundred three score six” becomes “Six hundred Sixty Six”. At the same time this doesn’t seem to come from any ancient clergy texts or copies of the bible. If John wrote down what he saw in the vision- and interpreted into Greek, which is what he understood (And what shoebat tells us), Since were all using original sources, Why does the oldest Bible record it as εϲτιν εξακοϲιαι εξηκο? Not to mention the dialect change on a random unknown document that is 200 years younger?

What all this means I’m not entirely sold all of this is centered around Islam. Which coincidentally Shoebats ministry seems to focus on nothing else. (yes we can talk about biased opinions also false teachers). Truly the mark of the beast has nothing to do with Bismillah. Also what does this have to do with money and transactions? The Greek and Arabic looking alike, is a good thought, but language is fickle- And its known the Ottomans took Byzantine empire (Greece) around this time, so its easy to see where the dialect could have been borrowed. Finally, I will also give this credit on Muslims forcing us to wear head and arm bands or be beheaded in worship to Allah. This sounds like something a terrorist group will do, but it just has too shaky of a foundation.

RFID Chip

  • Everyone will be required to have it. it will be forced on us.
  • It has something to do with money.
  • It goes on the right hand or forehead. (perhaps its optional where you put it)
  • It will be some kind of mark or label to it.
  • 666 will have something to do with the man issuing it out.

I copied our criteria earlier here, because truth be told this holds the best scrutiny that I’ve heard of. Lets say the Illuminati take over the world. They want a full scale technocratic society and EVERYONE has to have a microchip in their hand. The chip is used for money, you can pay by barcode666swiping your hand at the store register credit card machine, Or say pay by shaking hands. Maybe you had your hands blown off, Maybe your hands are paralyzed, maybe you don’t want it in your hand (Asian cultures make deals by Bowing, India has a thing for marks on their forehead for all kinds of reasons). What ever reason that chip doesn’t go in the hand you can put it in your forehead. Ok this meets the criteria 1-4, the problem with #5 is dominantly its believed by this theory Bar codes have 666 in them. Since RFID tech relies on bar codes to work, well its basic logic where they get this. However, this is not a number of a man its a number of a thing. A good deal many things and people at this point- the bible is describing the man as Singular. Fortunately this is pretty expendable to the model. It’s plain to see by prophecy, only when the time comes we will know who the Beast of the Sea is, and what 666 has to do with him.

RFID chips by all means still match the criteria perfectly. What a scary thought Vets offer it now to our pets. I for one will not subject my Cat or Dog to Gods wrath by getting them chipped. I don’t know if they go to heaven but im not willing to gamble their souls.  It’s easy enough to keep the door closed so the cats don’t get loose, and keep the fence gate shut so the dogs can poop and not go to far from the back door. The thing is it starts with experiments on animals, next Senior Citizens (already in the works), then dare I say YOU.

So what I get from this digression is when ever it is announced I am required to take something in my hand that lets me make payments the answer is NO!! I wont do it for my cats and dogs, I definitely wont do it for myself. As a christian when the time comes I will shout it out in the streets “DO NOT TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST ITS_______”!!! I am sure I will soon be met with my head getting cut off. AND I will gladly make it easy for them to do it. Without Christ in this world, its a miserable place to live. Plus the unrighteous will make it a point to turn the whole thing into barbaric hell hole. Frankly,  I’m not interested in seeing Gods wrath on a first hand account. My faith in Jesus can not be so easily shaken I cant simply stick with good old fashioned cash or trade goods. The real thing you need to decide is, are you willing to do the same?

  1. Hi Angel Fish
    You have a nice long article with a lot of information. However do you realize you already have the mark of the beast? only that you do not know who the beast is and what is his mark! Understand that a beast is a nation. The image of the beast is already formed, only that you do not understand it. If you are willing I would like to point you in the right biblical direction. Not my idea but rather what is the bible saying.

  2. Hi again Angel Fish

    Since the subject is a long one let us go step by step in answering the question and why I said you already have the mark of the beast only that you do not it.
    The Bible says in Revelation 13:11; And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
    We will not go way out lime with this but rather try to understand what is the Bible saying. If we understand what is the Bible is saying then all the noise and chatter will not affect us.
    I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth.
    What is a Beast?
    In the book of Daniel chapter 7 explain what is a beast.
    Daniel:7:23: Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
    Daniel:7:24: And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

    There we see that a beast is a nation and horn is the political power.
    The beast came from the earth.
    What is earth?
    Revelation tells us what is water then earth is the opposit of water.
    Revelation17:15: And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
    Therefore, the Bible is saying that this nation (beast)came to power at a time when there was not yet too many people (earth) and it has two political powers (horns) functioning simultainously. It also create laws (speak) like a dragon.
    Our job is to identify this nation then we can follow the acts of this nation through the rest of the text.

    1. I see- The trouble you have there though is all nations begin without having a lot of people, and they all make laws (some godlier laws then others) Though here the bible doesnt say “at a time when there isnt alot of people”- It says “which shall be diverse from all kingdoms” This could be America as we are the most diverse in the whole world- but moreover suggesting there’s plenty of other kingdoms in the world at the time set in the prophecy.

      More importantly instead of worrying one particular passage reading into it beforehand the bible makes it clear the world will be united and divided up into 10 kingdoms. So basically The UN brings the world together and delegates the world up into 10 sections- which is an inevitable thing they would have to do in order to have a united world work efficiently. As far as I can see the time isn’t here yet, not one country on earth is surrendering their borders to the UN (or an office like it). So where do you come with we already have the mark of the beast?

      1. Hi Angel Fish

        Daniel 7:23 is used here only to identify what a beast is according to the Bible. The fourth beast is the Roman Empire. When the Roman Empire disintegrated what came out of it is the beast that came from the sea in Revelation 13; which is known today as the European Nations and ruled the world at its height of power. Different nations among the European Nations at different times took the helm of supremacy.

        When the beast that came from the earth came to powder; it took the power of the beast that came from the sea. However He causes the whole earth to be patriotic (worship) to the European Nations as it is today. The text says, And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed Revelation 13:12.

        So what about the deadly wound being healed?

        Germany invaded Poland in 1939, which was the start of World War II. It went on to invade Denmark, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and Belgium and France fell less than a year later to German control. Britain was the only nation left in Western Europe to oppose Adolf Hitler, which at that time she rule the waves; her naval power was unmatched. She was the super power of Western Europe. Before long the whole world was at war.

        However by 1945 all of these nations came out of the war intact with not one nation changing hands. Observed how John said the wound was received by a sword; the sword of war. “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live Revelation 13: 14.”
        We will take a look at the acts of the two horn beast and what miracles he had power to do in the sight of the sea beast.
