The Mark of the Beast is Not Here Just Yet

Many Christians, including myself, have been talking about the famous mark of the beast that the Bible predicted 2000 years ago. We believe it is very near and on the horizon however I do not believe it is here yet. Most importantly, I want to assure all my readers that they have not taken the mark in ignorance or by accident. I have heard reports of new converts worrying about this because, before their conversion, they accepted a microchip implant and the thought that they can never be forgiven has caused them distress. It is my intention to shed some Biblical light on this topic and relieve that worry. However I also want to warn people about the dangers ahead with digital ID.

The mark of the beast is found in the thirteenth chapter of the Book of Revelation. I will quote the entire chapter at length in order to give the full context:

Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. 4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

The Beast from the Earth
11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

Revelation 13, New King James Version (all quotes from the Bible are NKJV in this article unless otherwise stated)

At a period in the future a world government, a one world economy and a one world religious system will arise and have power over all nations and all peoples. I believe that this is a future event for many reasons and one is the fact that there has no single world empire yet. Dictatorships have come and gone over many centuries but none have conquered the whole earth. This one world system will be centred in one man which the Bible calls “the beast”. He is predicted in many parts of the Old Testament and The New Testament and especially in 2 Thessalonians 2:

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day [The Day of the Lord] will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits [c]as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

2 Thessalonians 2

In this chapter the beast is referred to as “the man of sin” and “the son of perdition” and he exalts himself to be worshipped. Likewise in Revelation 13 his false prophet sets up an image of the first beast to be worshipped on pain of death. It is at this point that the false prophet mandates that everyone receives a mark on their foreheads or their right hands and he mandates that nobody is able to buy or sell without this mark. The mark is both physical and spiritual. It is required for financial transactions but it is also a public declaration that you have decided to worship the beast.

This is currently on the horizon because the technology for this has been created. Digital transactions are already very popular in Sweden where people have volunteered to have microchips inserted into their hands. These chips are then used to pay for items and authenticate them onto social media platforms. Some even use it to open doors because pushing a handle is just too much hard work for them! The Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have developed a new invisible ink that could be injected under a patient’s skin, leaving a record of their vaccination history. In 2020 Microsoft filed a patent for Crypto Currency System Using Active Body Data which means that your body data transmission will be a means of digital payment. The patent has been given the number 060606 either deliberate (and therefore mischievous) or divinely ordained to reveal it. Microsoft is also a partner in ID2020 which is promoting Digital Identity, which is designed to replace passports, health records, authentication and financial transactions. A Microsoft fan has even written this on their website:

Will wearables, implant’s like those being used in Swedish subways or some form of digital tattoo become the norm?

As more and more transactions become digital in nature and are built around a single global identification standard, supported by Microsoft, the question of who will govern this evolving global community and economy becomes relevant. Especially since nonparticipants in this system would be unable to buy or sell goods or services.

In other words, resistance to this will result in you not being able to “buy or sell” which is exactly what the Bible predicted. I believe this time is drawing near. But it is not here yet because the beast has not arrived yet. In the book of Revelation the order is very clear – first the man of sin will conquer the world and then the mark will be implemented. This mark will be his mark and it will somehow be uniquely related to him and his number. The mark of the beast has not arrived yet because the beast himself has not arrived yet.

Furthermore there will be a clear warning given by angels from Heaven when this is implemented:

Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. 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 ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

Revelation 14:9-11

Nobody will be able to take the mark by accident or in ignorance. God is a just, kind and merciful God and gives a fair and clear warning to all who are tempted to take this. We have not seen any angels travelling the world and giving these warnings but we will do when this time comes. Today people have accepted implants purely for their own convenience and not as an act of worship to a man who has not even arrived yet. If unbelievers who have accepted digital implants hear the gospel and are convicted then of course they can be saved. However I also emphasise this: I am not saying that it is ok to receive a digital tattoo or a microchip once you know the truth. Even though RFID chips and digital tattoos are not the mark of the beast, they still come with many health and privacy dangers. Imagine if this technology was available in Berlin in the 1940s. Imagine if you were Jewish and the government had sold this to you for the benefits. But then you tried to hide from the Nazis but there was no place to hide. With this technology they could hunt you down to the very pinpoint where you are stood. There are also health concerns because it raises the question as to what they can download or send to that chip inside of you. You have a God-given right over your own body and no government, business or other individual is allowed to intrude on that. So I plead with people to not accept any form of digital ID at all costs – both now and especially in the future.
