What is the Mark of the Beast?
Today we live in a world of many "false prophets" standing in their synagogues teaching things that are not of God. Are they actually speaking the Devil's doctrine? Have you been lied to and deceived that this mark will be a computer chip, or a tattoo, etc. Have you ever been taught about the Mark of God?
There are many Christians that have never been taught about the "mark" of the beast. Why is that? Why are we not being taught the real truth? Is the mark of the beast really a tattoo, or a microchip embedded in the skin, or an electronic ID card? Today, I am going to do my best to explain to you what the truth really is concerning the mark of the beast vs the mark "seal" of God.
The real truth is all about "worship" plain and simple folks.
If anyone is forced by their government to receive some sort of electronic device or physical tattoo on or in their body, but they continue to worship God in spirit and truth, keeping His commandments and laws, then no they will not go to Hell. Why? Because they have still not giving their allegiance to Satan. They are still worshipping God. The only thing this micro-chip or tattoo will be used for is the beast "system" to track you or keep you from buying and selling, but only that.
Let us examine: Revelation 14:9-12 ...'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: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.'
You see there are two marks. The English word “mark” is the translation of the Greek word charagma, #5480 in Strong’s Concordance, which is essentially the same as the Greek word #5481 in Strong’s Concordance which is: charakter. Both words mean the “express image of”, or character. Now most of us know that Jesus/Yahshua was the “express image of God.” So, this means that those who have the “Mark” of the Beast will be “the express image of” the Beast. Do we choose to worship God and obey Him, or do we choose to worship the beast system "new world order" and follow it?
Here are the two marks:
Mark of God
Deuteronomy 6:8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
Mark of the Beast
Revelation 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:
If you have the Mark of God in your hand and mind then you will keep the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD your God commanded you to keep!
Revelation 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 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.
If you have the Mark of the Beast in your hand and mind then you will have hostility to the Ten Commandments and God's law. You will do all you can to discredit the Holy Bible, call Christians terrorists, remove the Ten Commandments from public places, believe in abortion and believe in Homosexuality, etc, etc.
Revelation 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, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
When a person rejects God's law and His commandments they have already decided to "worship" the beast.
You see it is very simple. Our hand symbolizes work, and our forehead represents the mind. God tells us to 'do' His commandments. (Hand) And think on them constantly. (Forehead).
Deuteronomy 6:6-8 .....'And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.'
Deuteronomy 11:8,18 .....'Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ye go to possess it. Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.'
Hebrews 10:16 .....'This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them.'
Isaiah 8:16 .....'Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.'
Now this may help you understand what the mark was that God placed on Cain. Read Genesis 4. God separated Cain from His presence and placed a mark on him! "mark of the beast". Lucifer the serpent was the father of Cain, and Cain was from the "wicked" one and he helped bring the beast system "New World Order" into being.
