I believe the mark of the beast is something that most people would never guess.Think about it-the devil will not give a mark that is obvious-things like real I.D.,computer chips etc.-he will use something that everyone will RECIEVE-baptism! Christianet email donaa8388-let's talk

See Rev 13:18.

Kasia: We are instructed to go out into the world and spread the Gospel of the Kingdom of God - not to be only hearers of the word but doers. Following the footsteps of the apostles isn't that bad. I fellowship with each group regularly and write letters to the groups in other parts of the country.

Lee: EGW is spot on..perhaps a different explanation: Mark of the Beast is the Anti Christ/those who go against His Word, Laws and His righteous ways. You Lee go against God's 7th day Sabbath which He commanded us to REMEMBER and observe as a Holy day made Holy by Him/God.

If you know that then why are you turning from the new Law of the Spirit our New covenant back to the Law of Moses is he your savior, The letter killeth the Spirit gives Life.

Revelation 13:16 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 name 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.

i think going to church is extremely important because we are not to be free birds and fly to a church this week and to another next week but we suppose to be rooted and devoted in some church. you should pray and recognize what church is good to be in and sereve there with all your heart and fulfill the calling for the church that have the pastor of the church. if every member of church did what he wants to do every church would break up.
---Kasia on 3/6/07

Lee: I don't belong to any religion or cult. They cause too many problems in the world. I would opt for just having a personal relationship with God and fellowship with other Christians on the streets, in the parks, or having a cup of coffee at a local cafe. I have also started home churches in Portland Oregon, Norcross Georgia, Chicago Illinois, Detroit Michigan and a few out of the way towns along the west coast. The one in Portland is faultering so I'm going up there in May.

That post conserning CUR was a little frivolous dry humor. But I did have a dream about CUR last year. Do you remember studying how the slaves in the 1800s escaped the south to the north along the underground railroad? CUR is the acronym for Christian Underground Railroad, where Christians traveled to safety during the tribulation period. I saw thousands of Christians traveling different routes.
---Steveng on 3/5/07

I agree with Jack read Rev. 13:18 and pray God give you wisdom to receive this truth. Just as important is the mark God puts on his children. Read the book Marked Men by Al Houghton.
---Cathy on 3/5/07

Lucifer left his first estate or form and became a beast his Idea was to become a god but to do that he had to reproduce himself in every living human after he deceived man and man fell from his spiritual state it made a place in man for Satan to dwell therefore the carnal mind came forth to be reproduced in every human the mind of Satan is the mark of the Beast, that is why we must be Spiritually reborn and willfully receive the mind of Christ.
---Exzucuh on 3/4/07

Steveng - can only agree with your last post. Thank you very much for not upholding that crazy Ellen White view that the Mark of the Beast will be Sunday worshippers. Her hatred of other religions was much too extreme.
---lee on 3/4/07

SSN, Chips, and nations, oh my! Will the truth be behind door number one, door number two or door number three. There are as many opinions about the mark of the beast as there are marbles in a person's head. This frivolous debate only confuses Christians. Stop it already. Get on with your life of feeding, clothing and quenching the thirst of the poor and needy. God, in his own time, will reveal to a handful the truth in His time. Quit quessing.
---Steveng on 3/4/07

... And could I be that handful? Yes. I know the truth just as hundreds of people in the world have been chosen to know. We would recognize each other instantly if we crossed each others path. I can't reveal right now the truth, but this I can say: It is the people who are too knowledgeable in a worldly way who will miss it, it is the weak Christian who follow the C.U.R. for safety. CUR stands for Christi

Ramona - *It is my understanding that Jesus said that he was not here to do away with the law but to fulfill it.*

And we can only agree but many things in the Old Testament were but a shadow or prefigured the ministry of Christ. The Sabbath was that shadow of our rest in Christ that was to come. Read if you will Hebrews 4.

Ramona - *If Jesus wanted any of the commandments changed don't you think he would have been more specific esp with the sabbath day.*

There were over 600 commandments in the OT alone. When the Gentiles became converts a dispute arose as to if they needed to become circumcised AND obey Mosaic laws (Acts 15:5). The Jerusalem Council under the guidance of the Holy Spirit decided that converts need not observe Jewish law and that would include the Sabbath as it pertained only to the Jewish nation.
---lee on 2/19/07

kay, if it isn't the only commandment that has been changed then what else has. If Jesus wanted any of the commandments changed don't you think he would have been more specific especially with the sabbath day. I believe like so many we are in the end times and we need to be ever vigilant about this.
---Ramona on 2/18/07

God already revealed to Daniel in the old Testament who the "beasts" of his day were. They were the nations from his present time and into the future that had "world" dominion. The horns represented the leaders of these nations. I believe the final "beast" will be a union of nations.
---Gloria on 2/9/07

I believe the mark will be both spiritual (as God places his mark on our hands and our marks stand for ownership - we belong to God) but it will also be literal. I see the "signs of the times". Microchips have already been developed and approved by the FDA that are the size of the grain of rice. One country in particular, Mexico, already uses microchips for identificatio purpose for government officials.

The required "mark" will be introduced as a means of stopping identity theft and possibly as a way to stop crime in that cash will be taken out of the system. But, ultimately, the "mark" will be used for evil as a way of controlling mankind.
---Gloria on 2/9/07

The actual "mark" that people will have on thier right hands and foreheads will be the "trademark" on this microchip. The trademark of this union of nations ..governments already use trademarks or "seals" to identify themselves and as the U.S. trademark laws become adopted internationally all governments and government entities will have their own trademarks.
---Gloria on 2/9/07

"Now it has changed, the only commandment that has been, why is this!"

Ramona, it isn't the only commandment that has been changed. There are MANY Old Covenant commandments that are no longer binding. Jesus Christ, God Himself, is the one who changed these laws. The Sabbath was only a shadow of Christ. After the Sabbath was fulfilled by Jesus, it was abolished. No one is obligated to observe the Old Covenant Sabbath.
---Kay6588 on 2/8/07

Ramona, I must be very careful with my comments. I'm not implying that you are guessing. In fact, you are doing what I hope those who are speculating will also do. You are combing the scriptures to find the truth. I'm just getting over the flu, but I will keep my promise shortly to examine biblical evidence with you and other honest Bible students as we are and should be.

I have been studying this for a while and what i come up with is: The sabbath day. Yes this is what the seventh dayers say. But it fits. The beast is going to change times and laws. In his commandments we are told to keep the sabbath day. Well in the beginning it was saturday noone denies this Now it has changed, the only commandment that has been, why is this! Think about it.
---Ramona on 2/8/07

Geoff, I kind of ressent that remark I have been spending 90 % of my free time studying this subject using several sources. And always going back to the bible and confirming it, I ask the lord to direct me and he has. Deut. ch.11. vs. 1-18 what do you suppose 18 is saying rev. ch12 vs 17 which keep the comandments of god. genesis ch2 v 2 from the start god blessed and sanctified his day of rest. So when it talks about the beast changing times and laws. what do you think hes talking about?
---Ramona on 2/8/07

Kay6588, My pleasure, the actual particle word connecting the nouns is the eighth letter of the Greek alphabet "eta", and it can be translated "or", "either", "else", "case", "whether", "than", depending on the context in which it is used. So whether one receives the mark or the name or the number, they all represent the same exact thing, which is the unholy trinity.
---Eloy on 2/7/07

Eloy, I was just curious because of the way Revelation 13:17 is worded.

"the mark OR....the name OR...the number of his name."

Anyway, thanks for answering that for me.

(pt.5 mark of the beast,) The 144,000 anointed ones are said to have the Father's name written on there foreheads.(Rev 14:1) In imitation, Satan uses the demonic mark of the wild beast. Anybody engaged in everyday activities such as buying and selling is pressured to do the things the beast does and letting it rule their lives, so as to receive the mark, instead of worshiping God and doing what God wants.
---Johnny_5 on 2/7/07

pt.2 of wild beast; 1 Chronicles 20:6 says, And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand and six on each foot: and he also was the son of the giant. King Nebuchadnezzar erected a golden image 6 cubits in breadth and 60 cubits high to unify his officials in one worship. When God's servants refused to worship the gold image, the king had them thrown into a fiery furnace.(Dan 3:1-23) (cont.)
---Johnny_5 on 2/7/07

(pt.3,Wild beast,) A name identifies a person. so how does this number identify the beast? John says that it "is a man's number," not that of a spirit person, so the name can help confirm that the beast is earthly. Just as 6 fails to measure up to 7, so "666" or 6 to the third degree is a fitting name for the beast that fails to measure up to God's standard of perfection. What does it mean to be marked on the right hand or forehead? (cont.)
---Johnny_5 on 2/7/07

(PT.4, wild beast,) When God gave Israel the Law, he told them: Deut 11:18; Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that may be as frontlets between your eyes. (Hence forehead.) the Israelites had to keep the Law constantly before them to influence all their actions and thoughts.

I just want to respond a little more on the mark of the beast. As I stated before, Rev 13:18 says, 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 or "666." The wild beast has a name, and this name is a number:"666," Rev 13:17. Six, is a number associated with God's enemies. (cont.)

Ramona, more than what I think it is, it's more important to go by what the Bible says and not speculate. There are lots of questions and guessing going on here, but such an important subject is clearly explained by our loving God who wants us to avoid the mark. In my next blog I will share specific scripture on the subject. I encouraged earnest study of the subject with much prayer!
---Geoff on 2/6/07

I like what johnny 5 say's in his paragraph!
This is all spiritual of the mind! our 666 theory is to easy for the sinner man to understand and stay away from. Then it would never come to pass, making this prophecy a lie. God forbid.
---John on 2/6/07

Kay6588, The mark, the name, and the number all mean the same. In Greek, chi + xi + digamma = 666; and Nebuchadnezzar = 666; and 666 = 666. So it will be understood by all countries everywhere that everyone who receives the mark of the Antichrist man or the name of the Antichrist man or the number of the Antichrist man, has dissed Christ the Salvation of God, and given total allegience to the Antichrist.

"We know that it is 666, for the scripture reveals this."

But is the MARK of the Beast the same as the NUMBER of the Beast? (Revelation 13:17-18)
---Kay6588 on 2/5/07

JEB...Your social security number is not the mark of the beast. I can sell anything I own for cash and my social security number is not required. I can buy anything with cash and it is not required. I do believe that we will soon see this mark happening. They will use things like sexual predators needing to be tracked to start with. They already are doing it with animals. Next they will suggest the children to keep them from getting kidnapped.
---Susie on 2/5/07

We know that it is 666, for the scripture reveals this. It is the number of the name of the AntiChrist. Nebuchadnezzar in the book of Daniel has this number, and he was turned into a beast. N(nu)=50 + E(eta)=8 + B(beta)=2 + U(upsilon)=400 + C(kappa)=20 + H(eta)=8 + A(alpha)=1 + D(delta)=4 + N(nu)=50 + E(eta)=8 + Z(zeta)=7 + Z(zeta)=7 + A(alpha)=1 + R(rho)=100 = 666. Thus NEBUCHADNEZZAR= 666.
---Eloy on 2/5/07

This is a subject to me that is "Spiritual," meaning we can't take this subject "literally." The mark of the beast is "666." The number "6" is refered by God to be a "man's" number meaning, "imperfect." Therefore "666" means imperfection 3 times over. The "mark" will not be a "literal" tattoo on the forehead, nor will it be some computer chip inserted into the right hand, but will be of the "mind." (cont.)

pt.2 on the Mark of the Beast, Now if man continues to move with this "system of things" of the earth, without guidence from God, and try to establish that we don't need guidence, then we have recieved the mark, for we carry in our minds,"forehead" and keep it in front of us, "as on right hand" that we ourselves can accomplish what only God can accomplish. That we live for our way of thinking and not God's. God bless.
---Johnny_5 on 2/5/07

I think it would be wise to consider that the mark would be a world wide mark if it is a literal mark. In undeveloped 3rd world countries the mark you all are talking about would not work. I personally believe it has a spiritual meaning.
---buttons on 2/4/07

Actually 666 is a simple number code that every first century Christian (and Jew) knew translated into Nero Ceasar. Note that when the Bible was translated into different languages the number changes (at least it did in the early Church). In Latin the number changed to 667 so that it would match Nero's latinized name. He was an archetype though for the real enemy.
---lorra8574 on 2/4/07

Jeb, your social security number is not the mark of the Beast. The Bible says that only those who aren't saved will receive the mark. Are you saved? Do you have a social security number?
The Bible also says that the number of the Beast will total 666. Does your social security number total 666?

The mark is the number 666.It will be carried in/on the RIGHT hand or the forehead.Credit cards other numerical forms of identification are FORERUNNERS.Because other people can steal the existing instruments impregnation is practically "necessitated".People will generally think its a good idea and support it out of logic and then necessity.Taking the number is an unforgivable sin.The aim is a cashless society and continuous electronic monitoring and subsequently control:goodbye freedom!

The mark is your social security Number!
And its been around since for as long as we can remember! Because you can not Bye or sell without it in this country. Even if you win the lottery, you will need your mark before you get a cent.
---JEB on 2/4/07

666 is the Mark of the Beast (AntiChrist/Satan). 1st 6 = pride of fleshly might, 2nd 6 = pride of absolute dominion, 3rd 6 = pride of Satanic guidance. Pride is involved in the Mark.

They say that it is a mark on your hand or forehead and that you wont be able to buy, sell or trade without it. It is also equal to a mans name. Latin. Greek. Hebrew. I beleive that he will come from one of these nationalities.
