The mark of the beast according to the holy bible

This would seem to rule out micro-chip implants, biometrics, bar-codes, etc. These seven verses, clearly indicate a mark personally symbolic of the beast and his name. Most people limit the "And that no man might buy or sell" only to "the mark" but notice what verse 17 actually says: 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.

And that no man might buy or sell, save he. Again, this would also lean away from micro-chip implants, bar codes, etc. How do you "have" the name of the beast, or the number of his name? Five times the Bible refers to "receiving" the mark 13: Could the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name, be one and the same?

Depending on the definition of OR. The word or is defined: If someone receives the mark, they shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, and be tormented with fire and brimstone for ever and ever. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, 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: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Is there any punishment for "having" them? And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the MARK of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. Again, is there any punishment for "having" his name or number? Why no "torment" or "grievous sore" for those that have the name of the beast, or the number of his name?

Does one also receive the name of the beast, or the number of his name "in their right hand, or in their foreheads: The mark, the name of the beast, or the number of his name are the same single mark.

In this case, because we know what the number is, the mark would be "666". A lot of Bible teachers believe the mark is "666". Mark Hitchock, in his book, The Complete Book of Bible Prophecy, makes an interesting "logical progression" concerning the mark of the Beast: The name of the beast The number representing his name The number of the Beast The number of a man The number is 666 When these five clues are followed through their logical progression, the number or mark of the Beast is the number of a man who is the Antichrist or final world ruler.

This number is the number of the Antichrist's own name. I believe John 3: I believe God literally loved, literally gave, Jesus literally came and literally died. The mark of the beast according to the holy bible should I not believe the number of the Beast will be 666?

Some type of "esoteric" mark forming a "666" while also symbolic of his name. The Apostle tells us what it is. As he gives it, it is made up of two Greek characters which stand for the name of Christ, with a third, the figure of a crooked serpent, put between them, the name of God's Messiah transformed into a Devil sacrament.

Which would possibly be three separate "marks". Also, if this is true, you could "have" the number of his name or the name of the beast and not receive any punishment. From scripture, it seems unlikely there are three separate "marks".

Sunday Law is Coming!

Many authors and Bible teachers have attempted to identify the mark. Some Bible teachers teach the mark will be invisible. Salem Kirban says in Satan's Mark Exposed: The identification will be an invisible mark either on the back of your hand or on you forehead!

I believe the "mark" will be "loud and proud". The "mark" of the antichrist is "his mark" of worship and allegiance. He'll certainly want to "show it off".

The Mark of the Beast

Making it invisible would defeat his purpose. The "loony-toon" award concerning the mark of the beast goes to Richard Abanes, in End Time Visions, as Abanes incredibly writes: To prove his ridiculous statement, Abanes uses Exodus 13: It's interesting the 30 verses if the phylacteries came from Exodus 13, Deuteronomy 6, and 11.

And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the Lord's law may be in thy mouth: Does anybody receive a "mark" in Exodus 13?

  1. Since there is no cash, no other bartering system, criminals would cutting off hands and heads, stealing "rich-folks" chips.
  2. Satan operates based on subtlety and, in a world which he has deceived Revelation 20.
  3. He will, however, after he is permanently cast to earth, be allowed to do almost anything he desires verses 10 - 12. Heeter's patent "abstract" reads.
  4. Revelation 14 gives us a clue.

Does anybody "receive" anything in Exodus 13? Not only that the Greek word for mark is "charagma" which means "to engrave, a scratch, etching, stamp". Now does that sound "symbolic"? And every time it is literal and visible.

One is the mark of the beast in Revelation. Obviously the mark was not symbolic. And it was visible and literal. He was a murderer John 4: And the LORD said unto him, 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.

Mark of the Beast

And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.

And Abanes claims ". NOTHING in the Bible, either linguistically or grammatically, indicates that the mark of the beast in Revelation 13 is a literal mark on, or in, the skin. Abanes bashes nearly anyone who believes Revelation is literal. He then adds a touch of Nostradamus, Jehovah Witness, Waco, militias, and other assorted "kooks" and stirs it all up to make you think anyone who literally believes the Bible is a "kook".

Avoid it like a "pit bull with AIDS".

Mark of the Beast

What about the implanted computer biochip? In other words, the chip implant and the mark are completely different. The "guru" of the "micro-chip-mark of the beast" teaching is Terry Cook. Brother Cook has done a tremendous amount of research on the micro chip implant. Even though I don't believe the chip is the mark of the beast, his book is loaded with tons of excellent, documentation on the chip.

Soon, all people on earth will be coerced into accepting a Mark in their right hand or forehead.

  • How would like to borrow" Bill Gates chip for a few days?
  • He'll certainly want to "show it off";
  • The phrase "in their right hand" or "in their hands" doesn't necessarily mean "underneath the skin";
  • Satan is the arch deceiver and he is not just going to force people to take a physical mark.

I believe that such an implanted identification mark literally will become Satan's Mark of the Beast, as we will discuss further in this chapter. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark. This is the key to correct understanding of the technology that must be used to carry out its implementation. UPON their foreheads, or in their hands. What about the word "IN"? The phrase "in their right hand" or "in their hands" doesn't necessarily mean "underneath the skin". It normally refers simply to the "inside" or "in the hand".

A simple comparison of a few scriptures in Revelation yields this valid interpretation: Every time the word "mark" appears in the book of Revelation, it is the Greek word charagma.

  • The Apostle tells us what it is;
  • So the mark of the beast is in some way connected to the commandments of God.

Not in any manuscripts. Vine's Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words Charagma is very strong evidence for a simply a "mark" or "stamp", rather than a micro-chip implant. Stigma is translated "mark" in Galatians 6: From henceforth let no man trouble me: This is a very serious and dishonest error. Check every man out with the King James Bible, especially us Rom. It is very possible, and according to most authorities, a micro chip implant is coming soon.

But that is NOT the main purpose of the mark. God is not going to torment someone with fire and brimestone just because they buy or sell!

The requirement for receiving the mark is worship of the beast or his image: In fact, it's so prevalent, I've had many people write me afraid to take a credit card, smart card, or even a vaccine. Because of the lack of "skin-stretch", two of the worse places to implant a chip is the hand and especially the forehead.

The smallest chip today is approximately the size of a grain of rice, way too large to implant in a forehead. As we mentioned earlier, the mark is associated or representative or symbolic of the beast and his name. A chip is a non-personal, generic, piece of material.

  1. Well, if this was a Hollywood film, then maybe, but this is real life and we know this isn't going to be the case.
  2. The next problem with this belief of the mark of the beast being something like a microchip is the fact that any government could force a microchip or ID card or tattoo upon us.
  3. So has the Roman Catholic Church done anything in connection with the commandments of God that could be regarded as her "mark"?
  4. A patent number 5,878,155 was issued in March, 1999 to Houston, inventor, Thomas W.

Notice how the mark is personally associated or representative of the beast or antichrist: A chip is neither. In order for a chip to be security-effective, it would have to be located randomly in the body. Since there is no cash, no other bartering system, criminals would cutting off hands and heads, stealing "rich-folks" chips.
