Have you ever been someplace and a person is given a bill for $6.66 and they say “make it $6.67, 666 is bad, it’s the mark of the beast”? No it is not, the bible clearly says that the mark of the beast will be “IN“ the right hand or “IN“ a person’s forehead. Revelation 13:16 (KJV) 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: It does not say it will be a number in a plate number, or a bill amount, or even a room number etc.
Revelations also tells us that without the mark of the beast you will not be able to buy or sell merchandise, which probably means if the beast doesn’t kill you, starvation probably will. The Bible also tells us there are only 3 ways you can buy or sell. NOTICE THE MARK OF THE BEAST ISN’T JUST A NUMBER as many people will have you believe, but can be (3) different marks (with the same meaning); Revelation 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. The Mark is a actual MARK of some kind or NAME OF THE BEAST or the NUMBER OF HIS NAME, In case you are curious the number of his name is given in Revelation 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. (I would like to remind you again, verse 16 says the mark will be IN the right hand or IN the forehead.)
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ACCEPT THE MARK OF THE BEAST
Be advised, the little bit of profit/comfort you get on earth by giving into the Anti-Christ (Beast) is not worth what God will do to you. Read these verse very carefully:
Revelation 14:9-11 KJV) 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.
Revelation 16:1-2 (KJV) And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. 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.
Revelation 19:20 (KJV) And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE WHO DO NOT ACCEPT THE MARK?
They will live a very rough life on earth, some will be murdered, some will starve, some will be beaten half to death…but what God does for them after the great testing is marvelous!
Revelation 15:1-3 (KJV) And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. 2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
Revelation 20:4 (KJV) 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.
I don’t know about you but the DO NOT ACCEPT THE MARK life sounds a whole lot nicer than the one that DO ACCEPT the mark. I would rather sing praises to God and reign with Jesus.
