What is the Mark of the Beast?

Who is the the beast

Bible Prophecy foretells of a time when what scripture refers to as the mark of the beast will come upon “all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave” and that whoever receives this mark will be doomed forever.

Revelation 14:9-11 says their destiny will be “fire,” “brimstone” and “the wrath of God.” If you search the entire Bible, you will never find a more solemn warning than what is written in this passage, and thus this is evidently something very significant and extremely important to God. Despite this, there are countless Christians that have concluded there are no clear answers on what the mark of the beast can be.

There is no doubt that God is very serious about this subject and that the primary motive behind His passionate warning is His genuine love for all of mankind. This very same love was best demonstrated when He gave His only Son to die on the cross for the sins of the entire world. Scripture also reveals that God only punishes His children for something that is a sin against Him and the mark of the beast is no different. Thus this mark is obviously a serious sin against God and why it incurs His full wrath.

Since this is such an extremely important issue to God, why would He make it incomprehensible? Jesus said in Revelation 1:3 that the reader who hears and understands the words of the prophecies contained in this book are blessed. God has always intended for us to comprehend the book of Revelation and this topic is no exception. The truth can be understood and is already known by millions, but the majority have no idea because they are fighting with all their heart, might and soul to avoid something that has always been exceedingly important to God.

Note also that this apocalyptic mark comes indirectly from the Satan and not the Lord and thus the Bible is really warning us about a final assault from an ancient foe against our souls. This is the Devil’s greatest delusion and it occurs just before Jesus Christ returns.

When prophecy minded Christians contemplate the mark of the beast, they commonly assume it will be some sort of hi-tech computerized microchip, such as an RFID chip that will be surgically inserted under human skin by the government. Others are convinced the mark will take the form of a national ID card without which no one can buy or sell.

The mark of the beast and 666

Apocalyptic movies portray the masses with the number 666 tattooed above their noses. Endless speculation exists with the keyword being speculation. Most people have absolutely no idea what this mark is at all. For instance, the majority believe that 666 is the mark of the beast yet how many have missed that Revelation 13:17 states that the number and the mark are two separate symbols and so it is not possible for the mark of the beast to be 666. The truth on this mysterious number should be as well known as the origin of this solar seal with the number 666 on it that we will discuss in great detail later.

Revelation 19:20 states, “He deceived them that had received the mark of the beast.” The Devil is no fool and this is by far his greatest end time delusion and why those who get the mark are deceived. And since the entire world is deceived, this must be something the majority are already deceived on or is not very obvious. Just think for a moment. How many people do you know that would allow big government to implant something inside their heads? And how could we possibly call this deceptive?

The purpose of this very detailed and revealing document is to identify exactly what this apocalyptic mark from the beast is and who enforces it so you can avoid it when the time comes. Those alive on earth when the mark is enforced must resist it at all costs as it is a life or death choice with the destiny of our souls at stake. So we are going to avoid all the hazy speculation and assumptions and stick with the facts. You will be surprised how much ignorance there is on what God's Word actually does say about this apocalyptic mark. The information contained here may be shocking to some but nevertheless, the details come directly from the Bible and history.
