It seems that speculation abounds today from the majority that comment on this topic. Has God given us an impossible task in understanding this end time issue and is He going to delight in pouring out His full wrath on those who get the mark of the beast when we supposedly have no idea on what it is? People typically assume that the mark is technology and that the beast is Satan but what does scripture say?

Revelation 19:20 says, “He deceived them that had received the mark of the beast.” Considering most of the world has assumed that the mark is technology, then how could so many be deceived if it was technology?

Revelation 20:10And THE DEVIL that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where THE BEAST and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

How many try and establish what the mark is by starting with something obvious like establishing who or what is the beast? Mark of the beastThe identity of the beast has in fact been known for five centuries and even includes Sir Isaac Newton and the translators of the KJV Bible, yet almost everyone have failed to do this and just speculate! Does the Bible teach that God is concerned with technology? What does the Bible reveal that God is concerned with? What is the whole New Testament theme about? What about the New Testament? Again, what has God always been concerned with?

Where does the mark of the beast go? What is the mark or Seal of God and where does it go? Is the Seal of God literal and something like technology or is it symbolic? Is it coincidence that we are told twice in the Bible that the Ten Commandments are symbolically a sign upon our HANDS and FOREHEADS which is where the mark also goes?

And what about Revelation 14:12 which says that those who do not get the mark go through tribulation but keep the Commandments of God through faith in Christ? Why do those who keep the Commandments of God not get the mark? This is a HUGE clue on what the mark is and yet the majority never even mention it. Would this be consistent with scripture that says the Commandments are a sign upon the exact same location where the mark of the beast goes and considering that the Seal of God which is obviously symbolic is also on our forehead?

So the obvious thing to do is find out who the beast is from scripture but how many claiming they know what the mark is have done this? How can we truly know what the mark is if we do not know who the beast is? All we have is millions of people speculating what the mark is and yet this speculation does not match what scripture does tell us and all the relevant information from scripture on this topic is ignored.

Could it be that the majority of the world is already avoiding something that actually is important to God? What did you establish from the Bible that has always been important to God? Has it anything to do with Jesus dying on the cross for us that the beast could have interfered with? Does this have anything to do with the Commandments of God? Remember that those who keep the Commandments of God do not get the mark.

Why do we find God calling the beast Babylon in Revelation? Babylon goes back thousands of years and yet God is referring to the beast power as Babylon. Has the beast taken on the characteristics of Babylon which is well known for her many pagan practices such as sun worship which was practiced on the day of the Sun being Sun-day. Has the beast done anything that relates to sun worship and or Sunday? We are also told many times that the mark of the beast is about worship. Do the Commandments of God have anything to do with worship? And does the beast have anything to do with the Commandments of God that would be relevant?

We also find in Revelation that God is going to destroy the beast with plagues for all her crimes and for shedding the blood of many innocent Christian saints. (Revelation 15:1-8; 16:1-21; 17:1-18; 18:1-24; 19:1-21) This judgment occurs just before the second coming of Christ and after the mark has been enforced. Is the mark of the beast the final conclusion and climactic event to something that has been an ongoing issue for hundreds of years that has affected the true worship of God? Is this going to be the final choice of who we are going to worship and obey?

These are all very important and relevant questions and questions that most do not bother to consider when it comes to establishing the facts. Even when some discover the answers to these questions, they choese to reject the truth. Why would some do that when the facts are so clear? Is the majority of the world fighting to avoid the Commandments of God or any part of them that perhaps could be one of the biggest and best deceptions of Satan? And could it be that the majority are speculating because Satan is so busy keeping the world sidetracked and in the dark on the facts that are relevant? If you were Satan would you attack the law of God? And if Satan has attacked God's law, what part would be the easiest to attack and when would he have started this attack on God's Commandments if this were so?

The speculation on technology being the mark started with things like barcode numbers because many believe that 666 is the mark of the beast and yet Revelation 13:17 shows the mark and the number are different. And how many actually know the true origin of this mysterious number? Once again, speculation abounds but there is in fact solid evidence from history that does in fact show the true origin of this number and yet most of the world is oblivious to these facts.

Does this number have anything to do with the beast and God also calling the beast Babylon? The answer is yes. There are in fact answers to all the above questions from the Bible and you do not need to speculate. All you have to do is have a love of the truth no matter what it is. If you are interested in knowing the real truth and the TRUE origin of this number and how it relates, then please read the mark of the beast. It is a fairly large site as it covers this topic in immense detail that is backed up by scripture and historical quotes where relevant.

If you already know the truth on this topic but have not found the true origin of this number, then please read 666 number of the beast for the answers.

If you do not want to do a lot of reading to get very detailed information, below is the mark of the beast made simple.

The Mark of the Beast made simple

The mark is a symbolic sign on our HAND and FOREHEAD.

Revelation 13:16And 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:

God's law is a symbolic sign on our HAND and FOREHEAD.

Deuteronomy 6:5-8You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a SIGN on your HAND and they shall be as frontals on your FOREHEAD.

Who is the beast is the next thing we need to know.

All the following knew that the Roman Catholic Church is the little horn of Daniel 7, being synonymous with the first beast of Revelation 13. “John Wycliffe, William Tyndale (translated the Bible - Tyndale Bible), Martin Luther, John Calvin, Thomas Cranmer; in the seventeenth century, Bunyan, the translators of the King James Bible and the men who published the Westminster and Baptist confessions of Faith; Sir Isaac Newton, John Wesley, Whitfield, Jonathan Edwards; and more recently Spurgeon, Bishop J.C. Ryle and Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones; these men among countless others, all saw the office of the Papacy as the antichrist.” — All Roads Lead to Rome, by Michael de Semlyen. Dorchestor House Publications, p. 205. 1991.

So the mark of the beast is actually the mark of the Papal Church!

Scripture says the Papal Church would think to change the law of God.

Daniel 7:25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

And Scripture says those who do not get the mark keep the law of God.

Revelation 14:12Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, and the faith of Jesus.

What does the Papal Church says is their mark?

Of course the Catholic church claims that the change [i.e. Sabbath to Sunday] was her act, and the act as a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things.” — H.F. Thomas, Chancellor to Cardinal Gibbons.

Sunday is our MARK of authority. . .the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact” — Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1,1923.

So there you have it. The Catholic Church changed the law of God just as Scripture warned us they would, and those who keep the law of God do not get the mark. It is about giving our allegiance to God and obeying His law. We either follow man and tradition, or we follow God and keep His Commandments.

If you keep Sunday, you give your allegiance to Satan who gave power to the beast. (Revelation 13:4) If you keep God's law and more specifically the one the beast changed, (the Sabbath) then you give your allegiance to God.

And if you follow the Trinity, you are worshipping a god on the Sabbath but it is not the one true God and His Son. Right day, wrong god! See Is the Trinity doctrine true or false or Biblical.

Acts 5:29Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
