There is lots of information on the Internet that lead you through history from Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and then Rome.

The Roman Empire, if I remember correctly, is the Beast. The Pope is the false prophet or Man of Sin .

The Image of the Beast is the Roman Empire headed by the Pope. The Beast "that was, and is not, and yet is", prophesy of the Roman Catholic Church today.

The Pope's Spiritual dominion is world wide and small civil territory ruled in Rome. Google Mystery Babylon to open your eyes even more.

I do believe there is such as a Catholic that does not know the truth serving the RCC. I served the Pentecostal Church because my mother took me every Sunday and it was declared often that they were the ones who had it right. We'll that fell apart when I turned my life over to God and discovered tongues are not the only sign of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
---PERCY on 12/26/09


Therefore, I believe there are people in the Catholic Church serving, and worshiping the Pope in ignorance. God is still telling them to come out. I believe many know it's a false Christian religion and the Pope does not have the powers he claims in the Triple Crown. Google Triple Crown and Mystery Babylon. Don't be so sure the Dark Ages can't happen again.

It's just plain scary when you consider a guy has people believing he has been given power to take the place of Jesus Christ by twisting what Jesus told Peter when he professed his faith saying "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God" (Mt 16.16). That profession of faith is the rock Jesus was building his church upon! There was no Pope or Peter standing in place of God on earth! Peter certainly did not have authority over Paul, we know! Google THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM for the truth.

I find it interesting there are people who don't see the RCC developed from Little Horn in Daniel and the Two Horned Beast in Revelation.

Andrea: No, that is the teaching of Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Wesley (Lutheran, Prysbeterian, Methodists) Founders. You seem to be ignoring history and scripture.

the mark of the beast is accepting the teachings of roman catholic which signifies the mark on the forehead & practicing the teaching which signifies the mark on the hand. claiming the pope to be god is blasphemy & accepting the teachings & practicing them is the mark.
---kai on 11/6/07
These are the teachings of Ellen White. No Christian church teaches this. What ever our differences with the RCC the mark is not Sunday keeping.
Thats an adventist pipe dream

Something to think about (or pray that it doesn't happen).
Due to current technology advances, I can see the mark on the horizon. They are currently implanting animals with (RFID) chips and some people are already getting implanted. Where a simple scanner can obtain all the recipients info.
Add identy theft, homeland security issues, a smaller and smaller chip that can hold more info and a liberal government to the mix what do you get???

jody: "Question... Yes or no?

Jody, some will say "yes" and some will say "no." Our job as Christians is to reason things out so the lost or uneducated can learn why we chose the answer. What does the Bible say about people not willing to learn. A person cannot learn from simply a yes or no answer. I learn(and teach my students to learn) everything I know by asking only six question: who, what, when, where, why, and how. Jesus taught by parables, not yes or no questions.

jason: "i disagree. the ones who take the mark will not be fooled. they will do so knowingly. how would God,our loving father, allow one he calls his child be decieved into hell.

It is written that even the elect will be fooled - if that were possible. Many Christians will accept the mark by thinking it is not the mark mentioned in Revelation because they were not reptured. This pre-trib doctrine is a false doctrine concocted by Satan. Search the Scriptures to see what I say is true.

Dave Jason: A child if God cannot go to HELL! Only Born Again Believers are the children of God according to Bible teaching John 1:12. The devil has his children as well according to John 8:44. We are not born the children of God, we are born the creation of God. You must accept Christ and His work on the cross, plus nothing, minus nothing to become his child. Church membership does not make you a Christian..."

On the contrary, christians can backslide. Read the Parable of the Sower.

TS: "Read the Sriptures before you call someone a fool."

I was reading and taking to heart Scriptures before you were even born, young Christian.

"They hated Jesus so I know they will hate truth. The warning is given in Love, reject it at your own peril."

History will again repeat itself when Christians will also hate Jesus the same as the Jews hated Jesus when He walked the Earth.
---Steveng on 11/5/07


Born again believers are those who "Keep the Commandments of God and the faith of Jesus" Rev 14:12

Keep Gods Commandments and you cant get the mark of the Beast.

TS)there is express scripture regarding condemning someone to Hell too. You do not even know what day I worship the Lord on so how can you in your own legalism condem me? I also do not believe in the Rcc. Stick to the question. God help you as God knows me and loves me and I am heaven bound and know it. NEVER condemn someone to hell or pretend to be God by assuming you know who has the mark of the BEAST. I have not. May he HELP your soul.

Jody: YES, Every Protestant Founder properly Identified Vatican as the Beast. Read Luther, Calvin, Wesley
A Harlot Church "thought to change times and laws" when SHE, not Jesus, transferred Sabbath from the 7th Day to the First Day contrary to Scripture

Rome claims all bow to her authority in accepting SUNDAY Worship rather than Scriptural Sabbath. You indeed have the Beasts Mark

Who's offering you such a mark? Get away from him as soon as possible!

Not for religious reasons.

But because he's either a con man or a lunatic!

---jason on 11/3/07


No, the Left Behind series is one of the most unscriptural interpretations of Bible teaching ever penned and will send many to HELL based on 2Thessolonians 2:10-12. These verses teach that because they received not the love of the truth, they will be damned. Those that hear the Gospel before the rapture and reject it will not have another opportunity. These books give the lost a false security, and teach false doctrine, teaching them that they can deal with Christ on their terms and not His!

Let's end this discussion with some truth. If you are a Christian, born again, that is, then you will not be here during the tribulation. There is no other type of Christian, than a Born Again Bible Believer! Why don't you folks study the scriptures instead of your leaders and see what Christ Says?

TS: "The Andreas and the Stevengs of 2000 years ago were blinded by tradition and false accusations..."

You have such a foolish heart, TS. You judge me before you know me. It all boils down to kindred spirits which you and I don't have. Most Christians wouldn't recognize Jesus if He walked the earth today. Even you wouldn't know Him if he passed you by on the street. Most, if not all, churches (denominational) wouldn't give Jesus a second glance to preach in front of their congregation.
---Steveng on 11/2/07


TS: "The Andreas and the Stevengs of 2000 years ago were blinded by tradition and false accusations..."

As for tradition, I'm one of the most untraditional type of person walking the earth today (I'm not boasting, it's just a fact). Ask any of the people (friends, acqaintances, co-workers) that know me and they will definately agree. I invite you to meet me to get to know me better and to meet my friends, acqaintances and co-workers any time you are ready. This is a challenge to anyone.

Andrea: Those Prophecies in Daniel walk right down the March of Time and each Empire that suceeded them as declared are a fact of History.

Now you wish to rearrange that order to follow the LaHaye Left Behind garbage which is a product of the catholic counter-reformation called Preterism and Futurism first concocted by Jesuits Alcazar and Ribiera 250 years ago. Look them up.
---TS on 11/2/07


Andrea: Perhaps you should go read the writings of Martin Luther, John Calvin, Roger Williams and Charles Wesley. If those Churches are no longer invested in the Truth then they will likely join "ecumenalism" and come back into Catholicism. The Mother Harlot has Daughters. You can not afford to invest in truth for it will show your error. Pride will not allow that.
---TS on 11/2/07


TS that was back before Israel became a nation and the world powers changed. you are not impartial on this debate bc your denomination was built on an anti-RC basis.

unlike protestants who are not INVESTED in them being anti-christ bc your prophet taught this EGW. to admit otherwise is to admit she is false

I see the prophecies but I am not invested in that interpretation
---Andrea on 11/1/07

NO! He will kill you, if you do not worship him. >>>Both the beast and the false prophet persecute the church and will be judged by Christ. The beast is a deceiver. He is based on Satan's workings. False miracles, signs, and wonders, and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. They will both be thrown into the lake of fire. And everyone who wears the mark of the beast will be destroyed in the lake of fire.

Most Christians will be fooled into taking the mark especially the ones who believe in the pretrib rapture. For people will receive the mark thinking that it can't be the mark mentioned in Revelation because I'm not raptured. They will take the mark because they have, no, they need to pay for their living expenses. It's time to open your heart and listen to the whispers of God who will guide you through the perilous times.

To begin with, why would you WANT to take the "mark of the Beast"? If you take his "mark" you will have already pledged your allegiance to him and you will fall for his demonic deceptions. The Bible PROMISES in Revelation 14:9-11 that ANYONE who receives his "mark" will FOR CERTAIN be cast alive to BURN FOREVER in the Lake of Fire. It won't be some "exciting adventure" to experience. It will be Hell on Earth. But, only the beginning.
---Gordon on 10/28/07


If you are a true Christian, sold out to Christ, then why would you want to take the mark of the beast?

John: Start with Dan ch 2. A beast is a King or his kingdom according to scripture. Dan2 reveals successive Kingdoms in control...Babylon, conquerored by Medo-Persia, then by Greece, then by Rome. Rome then split into the 10 toes found on the great image in the vision. All facts of history. Continue in dan7 letting the Bible define the symbols and you just might find Him.

This is the unclean spirit that goes out of a
Man when he is born again, If that man does not stay in a relationship with the Holy Spirit to occupy his temple, that unclean spirit will return bringing spirits with him that could not return to their dwelling places the man will be seven times worse than before and willingly he will receive that Mark of separation, making it almost impossible for repentance on his part because of unbelief and hardness of heart.

You can only take the mark if you are a Christian those who are not are already under that Mark, It is the same as the Mark of Cain
It only means you are separated from God. Thats what salvation is all about to Translate those under the Mark out of the Kingdom of Darkness into the Kingdom of Light
under the Mark of the Blood. According to revelation some will sell Jesus out and return to the world willingly taking the Mark
Denying the Lord that saved them.

John: Scripture does not say the Beast Hands out Marks. Scripture says you "recieve the mark in your hand or forehead" The language of the day meant that you "accept the Beasts Signet (mark of authority) by Deed (hand) or by conscious choice (forehead).

Mima: With all due respect, It is unscriptural to say Christians will not take the Mark. The Bible says "The Whole World wandered after the Beast" It says "Come out of her My People" It says most will be lost "Narrow is the path and strait is the gate and FEW will find it" Many Christians today have accepted the Mark of the Beast and have done so in ignorance. The Beast is easily identified in Scripture and so is his Mark that many have been fooled into accepting today.
---TS on 10/23/07


There are many excellent answers here. My personal belief is that the Christian will never face the temptation to take the mark of the beast. I base that on God's promise that he will" keep us from that hour of temptation". I strongly believe in a pretribulation rapture. And the time of that rapture is I believe shockingly near. Timeframe I believe is within the next 15 years.
---Mima on 10/23/07


Many refuse to Identify the Beast all Reformers identified. Doing so they deny themselves the identitiy of the Beasts Mark. "The Whole World wanders after the Beast" Yet his mark and God's Mark (Seal) are clearly provided in Scripture. Keep God's Commandments and you cant get the mark. Keep the Beasts Commandments and you will

Rather than wondering whether or not you can to the mark of the beast, concentrate on allowing your mind to be opened to receive the seal of God by freeing it from the cares of this life.
