IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST SPIRITUAL OR PHYSICAL

IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST SPIRITUAL OR PHYSICAL?

Is the mark of the beast a spiritual mark or a physical mark? The understanding of this mysterious prophecy has people largely in these two “camps.”

One camp says it is a spiritual mark and has nothing to do with a physical mark. Yet the other camp says it is physical, most likely some sort of technological implant.

The most famous backer of the spiritual mark is the Seventh Day Adventist Church, which says the mark is spiritual because it refers to a Sunday Law which will be implemented by the beast Catholic Church in the future.

Still, there are others along the spiritual line who say there is the mark of the lamb and the mark of Satan, that those who do not have “Jesus” will have the mark of the devil. In like thinking there are those who speak of the mark of YAHUAH vs the mark of the devil.

Which is it? Is it a spiritual mark or a physical mark?

By the way, not many will finish this article as the truth here may be offensive to some. However, it is the truth that saves us and the truth sets us free. Remember, no one who loves or makes a lie cannot enter the kingdom of YAHUAH.

 

 

MARK OF THE BEAST PROPHECY

To answer this question, we will look at instances in which the prophecy is recorded in the book of revelation.

Rev 13:16  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:
Rev 13:17  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.

The first thing we have to look at is the following things are separated:

1. Mark
2. Name of the beast
3. Number of his name

 

THE WORD “OR” USED AS A SEPARATOR

Notice also the word “or” as a separator. This is very, very, very important and we will see this when we look at the meaning of “or” below:

G2228
ἤ

ay
A primary particle of distinction between two connected terms; disjunctive, or; comparative, than: – and, but (either), (n-) either, except it be, (n-) or (else), rather, save, than, that, what, yea. Often used in connection with other particles. Compare especially G2235, G2260, G2273.
Total KJV occurrences: 353

“Or” is a primary particle of distinction between two CONNECTED terms. In other words, each term after the word “or” is separate, though connected.

 

So what’s the meaning of this for our understanding?

The mark of the beast, the name of the beast and the number of the beast is separated though connected.

 

Therefore in this verse:

Rev 13:17  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.

It means one had to have at least one of them in order to to be able to buy and sell.

 

 

WORSHIP OF THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE VS THE MARK OF THE BEAST

What does this mean for our purpose? We will see when we look at worship of the beast being separate from the mark of the beast as shown below:

Rev 14:11  And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

There again we see a separation. We have:

1. Worship of the beast
2. Worship of his image
3. Receiving the mark of his name

 

WORSHIP OF THE BEAST

We have done an entire page on worship of the beast. There we showed that worship of the beast can simply mean acknowledging the authority of the beast.

This is what those who say the mark of the beast is spiritual are alluding to, that it has to do with worship. Indeed Sunday law or the mark of the lamb or the mark of YAHUAH are all worship of the beast. However, the mark of the beast is separate from the worship of the beast or his image.

In fact, to simply acknowledge the beast as having authority, or partaking of what the beast gave us, is worship of the beast.

So right now hundreds of millions of Christians already worship the beast by accepting Sunday instead of Sabbath, Easter, Christmas, the name Jesus Christ, The Lord, the trinity, and a host of other traditions of the beast. All those were given to us by the beast in rebellion against the word of the Most High.

 

WORSHIP OF HIS IMAGE

Worship of the image of the beast is connected to but separate from the worship of the beast and also separate from the mark of the beast.

The image of the beast is revealed through the number of his name (chi xi stigma – 666) to be Christ on the cross. Go to our page entitled What Is The Number Of The Beast so you can get this understanding. Otherwise you may not understand. Oh well, the picture below may help. As John had said, this calls for wisdom: let he that hath understanding count the number of the beast.

 

666-chi-xi-stigma-number-image-of-the-beast

The number of the beast.

So anyone who worships this image of the beast, this Jesus Christ on the Cross, is worshiping the image of the beast.

THE MARK OF THE BEAST

The mark of the beast however is different. It shows our allegiance, our worship of the beast through us doing something physical that will give up our soul to the beast.

Now a Sunday law, or the mark of the devil vs the mark of the lamb and the mark of the devil vs the mark of YAHUAH all relate to worship of the beast (not the mark of the beast)!

The mark of the beast however is something you receive. Look…

Rev 14:9  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,

 

Notice carefully above, that the worship of the beast is grouped together!

“If any man worship the beast and his image,”

 

That is worship. The mark of the best is listed after the comma and is something apart from worship which we RECEIVE!

“, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,”

Worship of the beast and his image are separated from RECEIVING the mark of the beast.

WE HAVE TO OVERCOME ALL

For even more proof that the mark of the beast is separate from the spiritual marks of worship of the beast and his image, let’s look at the verse below:

Rev 15:2  And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of Aluah.

Those who get victory will have to overcome:

1. The beast (worship of)
2. His image (worship of)
3. His mark
4. The number of his name

These are all separate challenges that we have to overcome. In other words, worship of the beast and his image are separate from receiving the mark of the beast. It is an entirely different challenge.

 

 

THE WORD “NEITHER” SHOWS MARK OF THE BEAST SEPARATE FROM WORSHIP OF THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE

Look carefully at the verse below and you will see the use of the word “neither” to differentiate the mark of the beast from worship of the beast (as in accepting Sunday law).

Rev 20:4  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 Yahusha, and for the word of YAHUAH, 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 the Messiah a thousand years.

 

Those who reigned with Messiah:

1. Had not worshiped the beast
2. Neither his image
3. Neither had received his mark

 

Without a doubt we see that the mark is separate from worship. They are connected, but NOT THE SAME!

So what then is this mark of the beast if it is separate from worship of the beast and his image?

As said before, the mark of the beast is a physical action we take that will mar us forever and show our allegiance to the beast, allowing the beast to control and manipulate us.

This is perfectly highlighted when we look a little more carefully in Revelation 13:16.

 

 

THE MARK IS IN ONE OF TWO LOCATIONS

To underline the point that the mark of the beast is physical, let us look more diligently at the verses below:

Rev 13:16  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:

Confirmation?

Rev 20:4  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 Yahusha, and for the word of YAHUAH, 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.

 

Look carefully and you will see that the mark is in only one of the following 2 locations!

1. In their right hand…OR
2. In their foreheads

 

The word “OR” there again! And as we showed earlier, the word “or” is:

“Or” is a primary particle of distinction between two CONNECTED terms. In other words, each term after the word “or” is separate, though connected.

 

This clearly shows that it is a physical mark as it is mark (singular noun) that must be placed in either one of two locations (forehead or right arm). That is why it is RECEIVED in the right hand or forehead. Received.

If it was spiritual, it would not matter where it is placed as it would have been received in the mind.

So if it was spiritual as some allude, it wouldn’t be in one of 2 places, but in both places.

You see, those who preach that it is spiritual say the forehead are your thoughts and the right arm is authority and control. Hence for it to be spiritual, it would have to be taken in the right hand AND in the forehead, but we see “or” meaning one of 2 physical locations!

Now it is a scientific fact that the best place to put an implant (physical) is in your forehead or in your right hand. Go figure. The mark of the beast is a physical mark. SDA and much of Christendom today are teaching error.

 

 

THE MARK OF THE BEAST MANIFESTATION

As time goes by, the claim of a spiritual mark is getting more and more ludicrous when we see a man called Gates rise up telling the whole world that they do not have a choice but to accept a vaccine that will allow them to alter our DNA using some sort of implant.

This implant will fuse to our tissues making us nodes in a network and we can be tracked and used at will.

That in itself will mar us forever as Satan will have control of our soul by being able to manipulate or very thoughts and actions.

This is the nature of the mark of the beast and so many Christian organizations are leading their flocks to destruction, telling them that the mark of the beast is spiritual.

Many, many do not even study what this vaccine is about, do not even study the technology that is out there.

 

 

CHRISTIAN RELIGION LEADING PEOPLE TO DESTRUCTION

Unfortunately, these people in Christianity will be happy to hear what these pastors have to say, as they are oh too eager to go back to loving the world and the things that are in the world. This is what is called “normal.”

However, the establishment is telling us about a “new normal.” Did you ever stop to think of what that means? It means authority and control and the mark of the beast to effect their authority and control.

These wicked preachers gladly say that those who preach the mark as being related to technology are conspiracy theorists. They in effect, are blind leaders of the blind and we know how it goes:

Mat 15:14  Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

 

 

CONCLUSION

However, I hope this post will enable you to see that the mark of the beast is separate from the worship of the beast and his image so you can stay alert and never drop down your guard. Always remember to prove all things, and hold on to that which is good (see 1 Thess 5:21).

Never forget that everything to do with the beast is a danger to our salvation. Therefore though so many of us are only concentrating on the mark of the beast, we must also ask, “Am I worshiping the beast or his image?”

So because we have to overcome them all, in the end, we must be found without spot, and blameless so as to overcome the beast!

2Pe 3:14  Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
