"The Mark of the Beast" - I have questions!
Updated: Dec 29, 2021
There's a lot of chatter about the mark of the beast lately. Can we talk?
Is the "mark of the beast" physical or spiritual? Or can it be both?
Is it a micro-chip or tattoo in our right hand and/or something put on our forehead?
Could it be that what is in our thoughts/hearts/minds (forehead) is carried out with our actions (right hand)?
Should believers be concerned with the mark of beast? Since true believers will have the mark of God? Can we be "tricked" into taking the mark? Can we ignorantly take the mark?
Can you still go to heaven if you "take the mark"?
What about 666? What do we need to know about that? Is it the number of A MAN or a man as in 'mankind'?
Will you share what you know to help others? What questions do you have?

𝐆𝐨𝐝 𝐡𝐚𝐬 𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐇𝐢𝐬 𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐧!
𝐄𝐳𝐞𝐤𝐢𝐞𝐥 𝟗:𝟒 "And the Lord said to him, “Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it.” 𝐑𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝟗:𝟒
"And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads."
The "Mark of the Beast" Scripture Revelation 13:16-18
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:
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.
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.
The consequences of receiving "the mark" Revelation 14:9-11
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,
10 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:
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.
The recompense for not worshipping the beast, image, or receiving "the mark", most of all - for standing firm on Christ
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.
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, and upon them which worshipped his image.
3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
18 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.
2 Timothy 2:19
19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
That's some of the Scripture that stand's out to me; it's not all inclusive. Read the Book of Revelation yourself; Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein - Blessings in the Book of Revelation The best part of the book is the end! Revelation 22
My Personal Thoughts:
1 Corinthians 3:16
"Do you not know that you are 𝗚𝗼𝗱’𝘀 𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲 and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?"
2 Thess 2:3-4
"Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗚𝗼𝗱, proclaiming himself to be God.
Have we for too long ignored the spiritual aspect of where the enemy seeks to seat himself? Between our ears and in our hearts? It's a battle for your mind, body, and soul. Do not let the prince of the air control it. Love God and love others! Take every thought captive and set your minds on things above.
Prince of the air = airwaves = broadcast = casting a spell = mass delusion
I am more concerned with having the seal of God. Having the Holy Spirit dwelling inside of you helps you to discern what is not of God.
If anything even remotely resembles some kind of physical "mark of the beast", as a child of God, you will know to resist it!! It will be so obvious. You won't be asking other people "what is the mark of the beast"! If you have the seal of God, it is good to know that God’s children are sealed, secure, and sustained amid the wickedness of this transitory world. For example, a quantum dot hydrogel vaccine or a biometric patch screams a "physical mark of the beast"....something very obviously not of God, a true believer will KNOW and resist!
It just seems like common sense to me and discernment 101!
If you have to come to a blog post or ask someone what the mark of the beast is, you are at risk of accepting the mark of the beast. I am not going to sit here and tell folks what is or isn't the mark of the beast. I don't think my train of thought resonates with very many anyways.
Forget the 'Left Behind' movies and the movies on Pure Flix about the "end times"! If that's where you are getting your doctrine, you might just be the elect that could be deceived if possible. Hollywood isn't here to share the truth. They twist the truth and hate Jesus Christ.
666. The number of a man. Body, soul, and spirit indwelled by the enemy. That's your physical and spiritual aspect of the mark of the beast.
We should concern ourselves with having the mark of God! The Holy Spirit is where you will get your discernment and you won't have to worry if you have or will take any mark of the beast! You don't refuse the "mark" to be saved. You refuse the "mark" because you ARE saved!!!

Seal your eternity today! How to Become a Follower of Christ
It may not be today, tomorrow, or in a 100 years... But Jesus is returning for all who believe.
Be ready now. Don't wait. We do not know when death will take us. We do not know when
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will return.
"As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions."
"Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. Only let us hold true to what we have attained."
Discuss in love. Do not quarrel over doubtful things or non-salvational issues.
We know that “all of us possess knowledge.” This “knowledge” puffs up, but love builds up.
1 Corinthians 1:18-25
18For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written,
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”
20 Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.
22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
