  1. Most of the people are just dwelling in head knowledge and waiting for something to happen rather than taking responsibility and declaring the Word of God over the circumstances and actively doing something that makes a difference.

  2. I think that one of the worse things that some Pastors will have to live with is the remorse of teaching the Pre-trib rapture. Most people in church don’t study on their own, they simply listen to what the Pastor teaches and believes it as the truth. They are told they will not go through any of the tribulation, will be raptured before anything bad happens, and surely will never see the anti-christ. THEN… they find themselves in the first half of the trib. They see a man solve all the problems of the world, brings peace, solves the hunger problem, fixes all the financial problems and then he does signs, miracles and wonders. Then he goes into the Holy of Holies in the Jewish Temple and claims to be God and… he asks you to worship him. Many Christians “will” worship him as God. They’ll say, we’ve been taught by our Pastor that we’ll never go through the tribulation, we’ll never see the anti-christ because he is revealed at the middle of the tribulation, so this absolutely cannot be the anti-christ. He must be God. And these pre-trib Pastors have to watch their sheep give themselves over to satan willingly because of their ignorance of the scriptures. This, will be a horrible thing to have to live with.

  3. Ah, the mark of the Beast… 1) it will not be the RFID chip any more than the barcode that it was thought to be back in the early 70s(at that time, it was the IBM 375-666 that was to be used) (does anyone remember when the address on the World Trade Centers was 666?). Man, under the influence of Satan is trying all kinds of techniques short of complying with God’s method of marking saints and sinners. Each of the methods will fail in turn.

    So, what will the mark of the beast be and who will apply it, and may you, dear Christians be deceived into accepting it? In Revelation, chapter 7, verse 3 we see the angel sealing the servants of our God “in their forehead”. So, you may be called to go get your forehead sealed to declare your allegiance to God – I don’t thik you want to turn this seal down. Then, Look folks, every man on earth except those with that seal in their forehead will be tortured (Rev 9), then you will be given a second chance to get that seal – so you won’t be tortured again – only, this time, instead of the cross or the fish or whatever the seal of God is, you will be given the mark of the beast. I do not think that anyone that has been tortured as they will have been by then, will be able to resist getting the mark of the beast – one more lie – first the half truth – “see, those with the seal, they are not getting tortured,” Then the lie “I can get you a mark that will protect you”

    If you do not want to take the mark of the beast, you must now, today, take that step you have thought about and fully commit your life to God! Then, you will receive the seal of God rather than choosing, in desperation, the mark of the beast.

    amen

    • Satan is clever, how are we to know that when we are being offered a seal on our foreheads as an allegiance to GOD it isn’t really the mark of the Beast ? I am under the impression, that when We are offered these choices, We will be in very dark and troubling times, perfect conditions for Satan to trick Us. Do we go on a gut feeling?

  4. We have documented many times what the “mark of the beast” is. It is deception, “the seal of Satan”, the lack of the “seal of God”, His Word, in your mind. But many have asked “What is the image of the beast”? Some have suggested that his “image” is the Picture on the screens of TV’s and Computers as he holds services and broadcasts to the world. And that will happen. But such is his picture and not his image. In fact it will be the “picture” of his “image”. Why?

    Because the “Image of the Beast” is that which Satan “imagines” himself to be, which is Jesus Christ. In other words the Beast, Satan, “sets himself up” as Jesus Christ and presents that “Image” to the world. It is a deception, a mirage, a smokescreen! It is a mere image! It is his IMAGE and NOT REALITY! And he causes the deceived people of the world to worship his “Imaginary Christ”, making them believing that he is Christ, when in fact he is really “the Beast”.

    You see, no one would worship “the Beast” if they believed he was “the Beast”! “Oh look honey, there’s the Beast, that old devil himself, let’s worship him as Jesus!” They WON’T KNOW he’s “the Beast”! They will IMAGINE that he is Jesus Christ because that is the “Image” he has created! Do you see? That’s what it means when we read “they worshipped his image”.

    Note: Most politicians try to create an image of themselves to the public. Many of them whom the public perceive as great guys and gals, all for the good of the people, are really a bunch of lowlifes. Test their fruit, don’t believe their image!

  5. Mark 13:10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
    There’s a testimony you are about to give all right! But it won’t be directly from you. Almighty God is about to “proclaim” the gospel among all nations.

    [11] But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
    Jesus Christ says don’t even think about what you are going to say. So tell your attorney to “chill out” and “Behold the Witness of the Holy Spirit” (on second thought, maybe just tell him to relax, you’ll be OK).
    Because here’s where it really gets exciting! At this delivering up, that cloven “tongue” which goes forth in all directions, which was spoken on Pentecost Day in Acts chapter 2, will once again be spoken. Every person of every language of every nation tuned in to listen will hear God’s servants give testimony, and they will hear the words spoken in their own dialektos, i.e. their own native language wherein they were born.

  6. The mark of the beast means ownership. However it is imposed on, in or upon you, it means you have rejected Jesus Christ as your LORD and savior. It means you have bowed your knee to satan and he owns you now. With God, we have a free will and He will never usurp that or take it away. He always gives you the choice to love and worship him or to turn and worship satan. But with satan and the mark of the beast, this is irrevocable. Once you bow your knee to him, you accept his mark of ownership and you worship him, there is no escape. God says no one can snatch you away from Him, but “you” can choose to walk away from God of your own free will. It’s your choice. It will cost you your life either way you choose, but one way leads to eternity in Heaven with the LORD, the other leads to eternity in hell with satan.

  7. The mark of the beast is neither “in” nor “on.” The Greek word is “epi,” and it means “upon.” It won’t be an embedded chip. Up and then on. Could be anything.

    • our eyes can be scanned and they are in our for head. Hands can be scanned. The government does this all the time for security purposes. Our money is going away it will be a credit debt system used by a one world government the beast of rev.

  8. The mark of the beast is your thoughts (mark on the forehead) and your actions (mark on the hand). Nothing more or less. The 666 refers to the ancient Greek method of assigning numbers to letters.

    • Dan said, “the mark of beast is your thoughts and actions” NOTHING MORE OR LESS. Are you kidding me. What Bible are you reading. Take the mark and you will spend all eternity in Hell, nothing more or less.

  9. Although this information is a good tool to get friends attention, let us remember that this will not happen until after the Lord Jesus comes. Rev 1-3 is the church age. Jesus comes between chapter 3 and 4 as we are now in Heaven. Later the Mark is implemented. I agree that there are MANY hints and ways the world is getting people ready to just easily slip over the line to take the Mark, but it cannot happen until the Church is Caught Away.

    • Pastor Barcus, I respectfully disagree with you on the timing of the rapture. Paul said in 2Thes.2:1-4 Now we ask you, brothers, regarding the coming of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, and our gathering together to him (rapture), (2) not to be so quickly upset or alarmed when someone claims that we said, either by some spirit, conversation, or letter that the Day of the Lord has already come. (3) Do not let anyone deceive you in any way, for it will not come unless the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, (4) He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and object of worship. As a result, he seats himself in the sanctuary of God and himself declares that he is God…… So you see here that Paul says Jesus will “not” come back for us until after the anti-christ is revealed, and that’s in the middle of the tribulation (Dan.9:27). If you are still not convinced, read Rev.20:4-6 and this will absolutely settle it for you, since you are not believing Jesus himself in Mat.24:29-31 where He says he will come back for us “immediately after” the tribulation.

  10. One of the ministers in stpaulapostolic.com works at the MSP Airport and is now required to use his fingerprints to “punch in and out” at work. He spoke to his union steward about this and they are allowing him to use the card as he used to – for now.

    • Pastor it doesn’t really matter. Government agencies for security reasons in our hands and retinas all the time.it’s simply a matter of security and has no disrespect towards God. There was an elderly gentleman in the church I attended and he got a license plate that ended in 666 he told them the DMV that he didn’t want that plate and made them give him a different one. Kind of funny but I can’t really blame him. Although it really meant nothing justa coincidence. Bye-bye Gary

  11. I can’t wait until The Lord Jesus Christ returns!!! We can’t stop what’s going to happen. It says it right there in the bible. Why try to stop it? These things have to pass for Jesus to come back. If you’re scared you should come to terms with Jesus and surrender your life over to him and believe that he died on the cross for all of us.

  12. News is saying that obamacare will require an embedded chip for everyone to receive treatment. This is supposed to start happening in March 2013. What do you say about this?

    • We have gone through the bill that was passed and we found no mentioning of an implantable chip. So there are some false reports about this.

  13. The mark of the Beast for SURE WILL NOT be a tattoo but most probably an inplant (RFID inplant) ”IN their RIGHT HAND or IN their FOREHEAD” not ON the right hand or ON the forehead. (Rev.13v16 kjv 1611)

    • I just pulled my bible and that is exactly what it says—(KJV) REV 13:16 EXPLICITLY says: 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 number 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.

      so my question and understanding by taking the scriptures as it is stated in the bible, it will be something that will be placed in the skin…a tattoo is placed on top the skin, but also within the skin for anytime someone gets a tattoo, you bleed…but aside from that, in order to be able to buy and sell, with the 1 world bank/govt/religion that is going to be in place, you would still need to have a means of buying and selling–and how do we buy? we buy with money…so there has to be a means to utilize a form of money…with our system we have in place today and the utilization of the now RFID chipping, wouldn’t or couldn’t that be a means of which is to come and how we will be paying for everything?

  14. Reg, IM not sure what the mark of the beast will be but I was thinking that the sun worship symbol (Obelisk) could be the abominaton of desolation at the third temple. Have you read my post at the Mystery Babylon-Who Is It? The obelisk has been used ever since the baal worship pagan religion was created. This symbol sits at our Capitol, at the Vatican, used for cemetary headstones, and looks alot like steeples that sit upon many churches.

    • Scott, the Bible answers that question for you, what will be the abomination of desolation. It’s not what you “think” it is, the sun worship symbol Obelisk. The Bible says the abomination of desolation is an “act”. The anti-christ will do this when he goes into the Holy of Holies, claims to be God and demands that all people worship him as God. It’s not a tangible thing or object, it is when the anti-christ desecrates the Temple. In the Torah, only the High Priest can go into the Holy of Holies.

  15. I’ve read the scripture you quoted above several times just now and in my 50+ years, I have just noticed something which has totally changed my understanding of this scripture. It appears that a “mark” will be IN the hand or IN the forehead which means it won’t be visible. I think this is “the chip”. Also, there are three choices:

    1. A mark IN the hand or forehead or
    2. The name of the beast – (wouldn’t that have to be visible?) or
    3. The number of the beast – (wouldn’t that have to be visible too?

    I grew up in the UPC and always heard it taught that the number would be on the head or palm. From what I understand now, the mark is quite likely a chip implanted OR the name or number of the beast. Please explain your understanding of this. Thank you.

    Revelation 13:16-18: 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: 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. 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.

    • 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… So, a mathmetician or accountant, or someone comfortable with numbers or cyphers/syphers (unsure of spelling) can figure out who the beast is; For it is the number of A man; and HIS number is Six hundred threescore and six….

    • You could be tattooed from head to toe and all the tattoos in the world could not make you worship Satan…but what you believe could make you that the antichrist is Christ. You have to know the “word” for protection and you have to do the “works” of Christ. He will know you by your fruits. Your mind is In your forehead and your works are in your hand.

    • The bible Rev13:18 says the mark of the beast is the NUMBER OF A MAN i beleive the mark won’t a visible one REV 13:16 posits so, and beast himself must be revealed before the enforcement of the number of his name. Most probably prior to or shortly after exalting himself above God in temple in jerusalem. Remeber also that the second beast is the one who enforces both the worship and the mark of the first. Vs11-18

  16. ONCE YOU RECEIVE THIS MARK THEN YOUR SOULS WILL BE THROWNED INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE…WILL YOU ACCEPT THIS MARK?

    Revelation 14:9-10 (New International Version)
    View In My Bible

    9 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, 10 he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb.

    • Many Christians now practice their secret sins and will repent later. They will think they can do the same thing during the tribulation. They will think they can take the mark of the beast and will be allowed to work and eat and enjoy life. Then when it comes down to the end, they will just repent for taking the mark and will still go to heaven. BUT, the Bible says that taking the mark of the beast is not reversible. If you take the mark, it cannot be removed or repented of, you are damned to live throughout all eternity in hell. This is not something to play around with like many people do with sin today. Many Christians will say, my name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, I’m going to heaven no matter what I do. If you take the mark of the beast, your name will be blotted out from the Lamb’s Book of Life. The time to walk a straight line and get as close to God as you can is now. Christians need to quit fooling around, grow up, mature and be who we’re supposed to be.

  17. We know that the 3 !/2 years Reign Of Anti Christ is already about to start.The Cashless society is about to be implemented.The system is ready to be implemented worldwide.Are we ready for this?The local ID cards are already with micro chips,.The passports are already with micro chips.The instruments which we are using such as cell phones,internet communications and other gadgets are with micro chips.We need to be prepared spiritually by obeying Acts 2:38,this is the only way of escape to join with the Lord,Jesus Christ when he comes.(1 Thess. 4:13-18,kjv)

  18. The Mark of Beast will be an ancient religious symbol of the Sun and used in Sun Worship, as well as Magick.

    The Symbol has been commonly used by those who proclaim themselves Christian for a couple thousand years, but is also a symbol used by Sun Worshipers.

    The symbol comes in two forms, and so will easily be used by both the children of light and the children of darkness.

    • has anyone wondered why Christians worship on Sunday the day of the sun. The first day of the week not the seventh day. God asked his people not to worship him as the heten or the pagan do. Yet we go on with our pagan traditions. Light the Xmas tree. And Easter or Ishtar who was a goddess. When they became Christians they drug all their traditions with them. Pick any of these con traditions. Go to the computer and asked the origin of the tree. Or even our calendar. The day of the sun the day of the moon and Saturn à la and a few others. It is amazing how the truth will set us free. Just saying…

    • Please, don’t get me wrong. I do agree that it is all very near. But we can’t begin the actual countdown until the 7 year peace treaty with Israel is established. That hasn’t happened yet. Don’t rush things too much. It’s already all happening too fast as it is. (smile).
