Identify the BEAST and You can easily determine Its SIGNET Authority over you. The Mark you recieve that shows your submission to its rule.
Exactly...THE MARK and the SEAL deal with WORSHIP. "If any man WORSHIP the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forhead or in his hand" Rev 14:9 Receive the Mark and you are giving homage to Satan, and worshipping him in deception (thinking you are worshipping God). Satan comes disguised as an angel of light

duane, I receive dreams from the Lord, I am not worried about my interpretation of it, the seven angels with the seven plagues are people, just like moses, want to ask me how I know?also do you really think it is locusts that are coming with the crowns? even when in exodus it says no plagues of locusts ever again, care to ask me what it means?

Every generation seems to envision the Mark of the Beast in terms of the technology of the time.
In the 90s, many people saw it as a bar code.
In the 00s, many people see it as a microhip.
In the 10s, it will be something else.
We aren't told what it IS, but we are told what it DOES - it will be REQUIRED to buy or sell, and eventually people who have it will succumb to some kind of plague.
As long as we're vigilant and look out for the signs we DO know about, we should be fine.

There will be no 'fence sitting'. You either choose Jesus or Satan, the Anti-christ.

Identify the BEAST and You can easily determine Its SIGNET Authority over you. The Mark you recieve that shows your submission to its rule. A rule different than God's declared SIGNET of His Authority.

Good Job Tommy, John & Robin...
It is to be taken literally, the word of God & the mark of the Beast...
God Bless you for seeking the truth & finding it!
Most of you other people better be careful when your trying to interpit the Book of Rev... If you add to it, Punishment will be added to you & if you take from it, God shall take what you have & give it to another. So don't lose what you have by Mis-interpiting Gods words...

Reformers Identified BEAST from scripture 400yrs ago. Bible says Beast is "King and his Kingdom" The Beast is a "Little Horn" that arose from the 10 in Daniels Vision. Find Smallest Kingdom arising from 10-Divisions of fallen Roman Empire, always ruled by a Man (no Queen), Who's Title in Latin adds to 666, who ruled over kings 1260yrs and youll Identify the BEAST. This Beast declared to World its MARK of Authority, yet most so favor a tradition 1600 years old they are blind to it.

the mark of the beast is DOING Satan type of things, and THINKING Satan type of things, if you read revelations 14, it says about having God and Jesus on their minds, well with the mark of the beast it means the same thing but for SATAN, like a murderer- that would be DOING,etc,,,

Rev. 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: There is Nothing here to indicate that this is a Handshake or knowledge.Notice the word"RECEIVE." This does not imply that something is going to be taken,but given.Why is it people wish to spiritualize literal interpretation? There is nothing in the language here to imply symbolism.

People are continuously making "Revelation" about the flesh. Jesus taught about the Spirit as did Paul. We are to abandon the flesh. The mark is (as Robin so well put) spiritual understanding (head) and fellowship (handshake). Satan wants our allegiance to worship and follow him. He cares little of carnal self.

I do not know. Many people (the rich and famous) have a bar-code implanted in their arm. this is to prove who they are and all about them.

Rev 13:17 Says the beast has a number, a name, and a mark. We are not to accept any of these three, not just the number. The microchip is just one of man's most recent inventions so it's what many people think will be the implant. There are however, other means of identification that are being invented that could make the chip obsolete. There is no proof that it will be an implant.

The mark won't be an implant. The mark will be like a tatoo that u will see Read Revelation 13:15-18 it will be something u can't take out or off. implants can be removed the mark can't.

The mark of the beast is either in the forhead (intellectual acceptance of its authority) or the hand (going along to avoid consequences).
"...forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark." Rev 13:17
"...and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed." Rev 13:16
