As you likely expect by now there are many false understandings concerning the mark of the beast. I have recently learned that I was wrong on this issue myself. But if we love the truth and continue in the word of truth and prayer we will come to a full knowledge and the morning star will arise in our hearts. First let us look at the verses around this mark in Revelation 13:
13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had
two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him,
and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast,
whose deadly wound was healed.
Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down
from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of
those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to
them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast,
which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Rev 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that
the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not
worship the image of the beast should be killed.
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.
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the
number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six
hundred threescore and six.
Notice first that the
second beast causes everyone to receive at least one of the following: a mark,
the name or the number. So these are 3 different things that one might receive
in order to be able to buy food etc... and not be killed. You could take the number but not take
the mark. You could take the name but refuse the mark. But if you take the mark
then you are damned from eternal life with God. This is clear in other
scriptures in Revelation. Personally, I suggest you take none of these and
leave nothing to chance. After all they are all of the Beast and not of the
So the first question must
be what is the name of the Beast. I have to say it is Islam. Islam is the
religion of all Muslims. And just as is true with true Christianity, it is a total way including
government. According to Islam there is no other way and anyone
who is not a Muslim is an infidel and is no different than a pig. According to Islam if
you are not a Muslim, you are not human. But it goes deeper than this. If you
are not a descendant of a true Muslim from birth, then you cannot become a true
Muslim. You can only become a slave and they may then choose to let you live or
Turkey is Muslim and
seeks, along with the Muslim Brotherhood, to convert the EU to Islam. First by
diplomacy and then, when the population is strong enough, by Jihad. But they
are not only moving on Europe. They are also making huge strides into the American government to the point that they will soon control the US, Mexico and Canada. Oboma himself came
into power claiming his Christian and Muslim roots. However, not long after he
gained the presidency he made open condemnation of those who would follow the
God of the bible and since then has grown bolder in his confession of his true
beliefs. He is Muslim and over and over and over praises Islam for their contribution to the world. He wears a ring with the inscription "Allah is Lord" He never praises Israel or Christianity.
Islam has it's religious
leaders just as the Catholics have the Pope. According to the Quran, the Muslim
bible, Islam will one day rule the world. To accomplish this they must first
infiltrate the governments of the world and place their armies in charge of the
militia. Then, when the religious leaders agree it is time, they will give the
command for a holy war against all infidels. That is against everyone that does not accept Islam and the prophet Mohamad. This is called a Jihad. You hear many calling for this in
the Middle East now, but it is not time yet. If they called for Jihad now they
would fail. But they are gaining control fast and it won't be long before the time
When they call for a Jihad
the only way you can survive is to join Islam and become a Muslim. By doing
this you are taking the name of the Beast.
There are several ex-Muslims who were terrorists and are trying very hard to get the news out that
this is about to happen. But they are also trying to reveal what scripture says
about the number of the beast.
The bible tells us it is
666, however, these ex-Muslims tell us that the word translated 666 was
originally an Arabic word used because there was no way to write the word in Hebrew.
The Arabic word properly translates to Allah is Lord. So you see this too is
proof that the beast is Islam.
Here is a video that reveals this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj2tY3jZL3M
Understand that Islam will
not have total control over the beast when we enter the last 3 and a half years.
It is only near the end that they will have total control. The little horn has
to join the EU then get control of 3 of the former EU member states. It is only
for the final hour that he places his 10 kings over the 10 nations. Until then
they are Catholic in religion. This is explained here: http://tkicbs.blogspot.ca/p/blog-page_18.html
So now we see that the
name and the number both relate to Islam. Let us see if the mark might also
indicate one has joined Islam. Remember, it is an either or situation here. It
may be that you don`t have to join Islam to be able to buy or sell. Perhaps you
can just take the mark, in the beginning.
that I have heard of in my studies that might be the mark of the beast is the veri-chip. If the US is the second beast, as I am sure it is and is explained here: http://tkicbs.blogspot.ca/p/blog-page_20.html then it is the US that
must cause everyone to take the mark. Recently the US administration was saying that you must take
the chip if you want Obama Care health insurance.
Though the chip is about care, if you don't have it you can't have care. But it does not tie you to Islam. Here is a link describing what this chip is about; you will have to scroll down: http://obamacarefacts.com/obamacare-myths.php
The veri-chip was
developed by the American company IBM. It is about the size of a grain of rice. Getting the chip only allows for medical related records but once you have the chip it would be easy to add your ID and bank info etc to it. There are those who have already accepted the chip on the right hand and have their bank information attached to it. Here is a link to help understand this:
Satan is subtle. This is just the beginning?
How would this chip relate to joining Islam? Many who take it will refuse to join Islam when the time comes. So are they then lost simply because they took the chip? This doesn't seem to make sense. I would say, "Don't take it just in case. There may be something about that chip that we don't understand in relation to God. Recent developements may move from a chip to a tatoo of sorts. We will have to watch as this develops. The more you look at this the more it seems it is related though not fully developed.
If you take the mark then you can go to the grocery store and when they ask for the
money you just swipe your hand over the scanner and the money is transferred
from your bank account to the store bank account. A friend at our church said
her friend saw a person in Sault Ste Marie, Canada pay for their groceries with
a simple swipe of the hand.
Is it here now? It isn't mandatory yet. But this is a better way to control the population and to
have everyone chipped so the police can find you in a hurry.
I have yet to see a connection
between Islam and the chip other than the connection with Obama Care. But that
may be just the beginning. At this point I have to say the veri-chip is possibly the fore-runner to the
mark of the Beast.
I recently watched a video on Sid Roth's It's Supernatural that has me realing.
According to him a man was abducted by aliens and was given an implant. When the implant was removed by a doctor they found that it was far more suffisticated than anything we have today. Here is the video link for this implant:
