WHAT IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST?

What is the mark of the beast? Broadly speaking, the mark of the beast is a term found in the book of Revelation. It describes something coming from a prophesied beast (world power) that will force the inhabitants of the earth to voluntarily take certain actions.

These actions will prove the loyalty of some inhabitants to the ‘beast’ and will then mean they have chosen the ‘beast’ over the Most High. Indeed, the Bible has very, very strong warnings against taking the mark of the beast.

 

This post is just a summary. The teaching video above goes into more detail. Watch the video for more details.

 

But let’s get a more direct understanding of the mark of the beast from the verses below. These verses are what gives us our biggest clues as to what is the mark of the beast:

Rev 13:16-17  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.

So let’s see the clues we can garner from those 2 verses:

  • He causeth all – the whole world will be made to take the mark, regardless of age or status.
  • To receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads – The mark will be in their right hand or forehead (spiritual or physical?).
  • That no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark – No man may buy and sell without the mark.

 

 

IS IT A SPIRITUAL MARK?

Now is it a spiritual mark as many claim? In our article entitled “What Does It Mean To Worship The Beast?” we looked at this question in detail.

In that post, we revealed what we found that the spiritual aspect (worship) of Revelation warning against the beast, is related to worship of the beast and worship of the image of the beast. We also showed that there is a physical aspect of the mark as well as a spiritual aspect as shown in the verses below:

Rev 19:20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast (mark – physical), and them that worshipped his image (worship – spiritual). These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

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 Jesus, and for the word of YAHUAH, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image (worship – spiritual), neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands (mark – physical); and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

 

So the mark of the beast is a physical mark. The spiritual aspect is the worship of the beast or his image.

IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST A MICROCHIP?

This is a very popular question as we have grown on the notion that one day, we will all be micro-chipped. However, the mark can be anything, as long as it fulfills the criteria of being given to the whole world, marks us either in the right hand or forehead and prevents us from buying and selling.

At the time we were told about this, microchip technology was the most advanced way they could get us marked with an implant. However, with advancements in technology, by the time it comes for us to take a mark, microchips might just be outdated.

By the way, in our featured video at the top of this post, we go into detail about technology, including a possible competing technology that could negate the need for a microchip. We also look at the possible reason for us being given a mark.

SUMMARY: WHAT IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST?

So the mark of the beast is a physical mark, as opposed to the worship of the beast and worship of the image of the beast, which are both spiritual. We can deduce this spiritual and physical divide in these verses:

Rev 19:20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast (mark – physical), and them that worshipped his image (worship – spiritual). These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

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 Jesus, and for the word of YAHUAH, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image (worship – spiritual), neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands (mark – physical); and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Rev 16:2  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 (mark – physical), and upon them which worshipped his image (worship – spiritual).

Rev 14:9  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image (worship – spiritual), and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand (mark – physical).

 

So there are many religious persons who claim to understand and are saying that the mark of the beast is spiritual and does not refer to any spiritual mark. These are leading people astray and is what happens when you follow organized religions. Whatever those at the top say, the entire organization follows: blind leads the blind down a ditch.

Seventh Day Adventists for example, are saying the mark of the beast is Sunday law.

If you want to know if a doctrine is false and in line with the antichrist spirit, just check the YouTube results. A search for “mark of the beast” reveals a long list of people denying it is a physical mark.

These are all setting us up to take the mark because we trust them and they are Influencers. Well, maybe I should just end with our study entitled “The Mark of The Beast: Do Not Be Deceived.” This is the full version of the video shown at the start entitled “What is the Mark of the Beast?”
