“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.” (Rev.13: 16-18)
Hal Lindsey, John Hagee, Jack Van Impe and many other Christian Zionists will tell you that a physical electronic micro-chip is the “mark of the beast”. There are even Sabbath-keeping churches who spew out the same thing.
They tell us that soon, we will be forced to accept this micro-chip in our hand and/or forehead in order to “buy and sell”. And, if we don’t accept this chip, we won’t be able to carry on any commercial or financial activity.
Seventh Day Adventists, on the other hand, will tell you the “mark of the beast” is Sunday worship. That is, everyone will be forced to worship on Sunday instead of the 7th day of the week. If they don’t worship on Sunday, they won’t be able to “buy or sell”.
Can you imagine putting a “chip” in one’s forehead — wouldn’t that cause some damage to one’s brain and its ability to function aright? Or, placing it in one’s hand –wouldn’t that eventually destroy one’s immune system?
I’m aware that there are those who have electronic devices placed near their heart in order to maintain a regular heart beat. Are these individuals required to take prescribed drugs so that the body doesn’t reject this foreign and alien device?
In any case, it’s my belief that placing any man-made electronic object in one’s body will eventually destroy one’s immune system. Modern man-made drugs sure as hell do!
So, if the “mark of the beast” is not an electronic chip, then what is it?
Firstly, please take notice, there is no indication in the bible that one must personally swear allegiance and fidelity to the beast in order to receive his “mark” and to be able to “buy or sell”.
Before one can understand and discern the “mark of the beast”, first, one must know and understand the meaning of the “Seal (mark) of the living God” and the symbolic meaning of “hand” and “forehead” as recorded in Exodus and Deuteronomy –the 1st and 5th book of the bible (Old Testament).
