Since anyone who receives the Mark of the Beast is doomed and with the different ways to identify it, that it is not just a matter of numbers, what are secrets it holds. Does the Bible and our current world affairs tell us? You need to be aware of the subtlety in which the Mark of the Beast will be distributed.
I feel seriously obliged to share this article BEFORE the next one.
By the way, need I remind you to forget all those Hollywood movies that try to depict what the Mark of the Beast is like? They will terribly mislead you. That is entertainment, this is REAL life!
Deception of Riches.
After Jesus fed 5,000 men besides women and children, the people were excited that they had found a great miracle worker and their problems were over. They sought Him for more. It was only natural for them to want more of a good thing. But He had something much more enduring for them, to which they refused to relate.
“This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like the bread the fathers ate, and died. Whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.” [John 6:58]
While Jesus was offering something of greater value, the people were very much prepared or preferred to settle for the mediocre, they wanted what would satisfy their immediate needs, and does that remind you of someone like that in the Bible?
Look at it this way: you have a spouse and two kids, income is quite low and you are barely paying the bills. So, you have to support your family. No matter how good you are at managing the resources, sooner or later you are going to reach your wits’ end and decisions will be taken.
You say, but I have enough money saved up for the rainy day and would not be in such a desperation about paying bills. Fantastic! What about if it there was a pandemic such as the swine flu, Ebola, cancer or influenza (flu)? Then what will you do? Decisions will have to be taken.
Coming to the rescue is the Beast. He offers a solution that involves a special type of inoculation; something that goes deep into the cells and affects the DNA to become resistant, just like bio-engineers and scientists have done with animals and stem cells.
As you know very well, in the name of creating disease-resistant crops, scientists and bioengineers have altered vegetation from its natural state to such things (genetically modified organisms) that even the full detriment is yet unknown.
My article is not about GMO or similar stuff, but that as it happened at the time of Noah, when Man abused Creation, we are at it again. But just that the Beast’s emissaries will propagate solutions to all these ills. This means they have created chaos and will also offer order, fulfilling the maxim “Order Out of Chaos”, in Latin Ordo ab Chao.
In the process of offering solutions to the problems created by the worldly rebellious systems that make Man to forget God or think Him as irrelevant, this is where the “buying and selling” with which the Beast’s antichrist will capture his victims will take place.
Some may say, “The Buying and Selling will not affect me”. Really? Do you know that almost every dealings you have with colleagues at work involves buying and selling? Buying and selling covers almost everything a person does, no matter what you do. Even if you are at a job; because you have to deal with colleagues, you are “buying and selling” your ideas/opinions to them.
Not being able to buy and sell incapacitates a man!”
The beast will not show up at your door looking like some fiery reptile blowing vapour, he is much more subtle (Genesis 3:1) than that. He will be offering solutions that will solve every problem you have, from health to finance, from housing to social security, etc. He will create such a network of solutions that only those with the Spirit of God will be able to discern. In essence, he will empower people to buy and sell.
The Mark of the Beast will come through three things: Lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh and the pride of life. Some people always associate these three main things with sexual sins. But it is far much more than that. Briefly, lust of the eyes does with ANYTHING that appeals to your eyes that has nothing to do with the basics of life.
Lust of the flesh is not just about physical nakedness, but it is about ANYTHING that charms and holds your emotions captive. This strong desire will be coming from within you. Then there is the pride of life, which has everything to do with how you want people to see you, a feeling of superiority or inferiority complex. It makes you feel you are either better than others or refuse to humble yourself over things.
The solutions offered will be the “miraculous and wonderful signs” prophesied in the Bible. You will be deceived to believe that you can live healthily for the next 100 years. It is a LIE!
2Thessalonians 2:8 Then the man of sin will be revealed and the Lord Jesus will destroy him by what he says. When the Lord Jesus comes, his appearance will put an end to this man.
2Thessalonians 2:9 The man of sin will come with the power of Satan. He will use every kind of power, including miraculous and wonderful signs. But they will be lies.
2Thessalonians 2:10 He will use everything that God disapproves of to deceive those who are dying, those who refused to love the truth that would save them.
2Thessalonians 2:11 That’s why God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe a lie.
These solutions are the carrots that will be dangled to lure the people of the world into a false sense of security and extreme rebellion towards God. This is how a good majority will receive the mark of the beast. It is a deception of peace and comfort. A deception of well-being and false hopes.
Strong’s Concordance defines the root word, “mark” in Greek as charagma (pronounced as khar’-ag-mah). It means a scratch or etching, that is, stamp (as a badge of servitude), or sculptured figure (statue): – graven, mark. We must be aware that the meanings include a stamping in the form of a badge. Do not rule out an ID card, credit card that will carry the image or photo of a person.
We are already used to all these forms of ID. For example, every passport carries the “guard bars”, with the first-two bars, the middle bars and the last two bars carry the number 6-6-6. Does that mean anyone who has a passport has already received the mark of the beast? Of course not; this is why you have to “watch and pray” plus consider and research my article, Mark of the Beast – 666?
But this is not going to be an ordinary mark; it is a mark that is accompanied by iron markings. Another of the Strong’s definition says “scratch or etching”.
Chips, Iron & Clay
One of the strongest indications that the mark of the beast will bring doom into the life of whoever receives it is Daniel’s prediction in the Bible of alteration to the DNA of the recipient.
“And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” [Daniel 2:43]
As Man was made from “clay”, angels are made from “iron”. While the clay from which Man was created may constitute all kinds of materials, the iron with which angelic beings are created also constitute different materials, but stronger in comparison.
“Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude. And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves.” [Daniel 10:5-7]
“They shall mingle themselves with the seed of men…” Who are the “they”? The same verse indicates who they are, because it defines two classes of personalities; the “they” and the “seed of men”. Obviously, this is not referring to human beings, but spirits or angels.
This perceptibly reveals that there is a form of integration between the two, meaning spirit possession. The spirit entity will enter and take over the soul of the person. Don’t ever think this procedure will be forced on you, it is you, who has rejected the Word of God, who will beg or queue to get it!
Has this happened before in history? Yes.
“But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.” [1Samuel 16:14]
An evil spirit possessed Saul, because he turned against God in rebellion. This is exactly the same thing that will happen in this end time when people will be marked with doom as a result of their rejection of Christ. This is where the marked ones will gain supernatural strength and do incredible things (Mark 5:3-4).
One easy example of this was demonstrated in the Hollywood movie titled: X Men Origins: Wolverine, when Wolverine was strapped to the table, fitted with some cables and some electrical current was passed through his body and his body was transformed. This may look fictional, but that is very similar to what happens with spirit possession.
Real Life Example
Ever heard some musicians talking about their alter ego personalities? Ever heard of Sasha Fierce or Roman Zolanski? No? Google it. These are because there is an insertion somewhere and another entity has taken over the soul. These people have been chipped, not forcefully, but by their own will. They saw the riches, fame and power (Matthew 4:8-9), desired it and surrendered themselves for the ETCHING or mark.
“I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created that kind of protects me and who I really am”, says Beyonce Knowles.6
That is why you see some of them carrying occultic tattoos. The entity inside them uses their physical bodies to do incredible things such as sing, dance, mesmerize, perform. This is now VERY common in sports, because people want to achieve great things!
“Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.” [Mark 5:4]
Someone asked, “So there will be no tangible mark as predicted?”
I believe it will be both a spiritual and physical thing. First, a person accepting that mark would have had an opportunity and rejected Christ, so there is already spiritual mark there. But also, the Bible states that no one will be able to buy or sell without the mark; that describes the visibility or identification in some regards.
I mentioned RFID chips in my previous article, Some fifteen years ago we had pictures of the chips looking like a grain of rice, chips have undergone phenomenal technological improvement since and could almost pass as an invisible tiny dot today.
Many are already displaying their rebellion towards God through their tattoos and piercings. Usually, those things are representations of demonic presence in the life of the bearer. The demon is supposed to empower the person for certain things. It is more than fashion!
Dear sleeping follower of Jesus Christ, it’s time to WAKE UP! You are at war, stop running after materialistic things, run after your God!
