How to Tell When the Mark of the Beast Is Near

Mark of the Beast

I was asked a while back how we would know when the Mark of the Beast system is in place. This individual was concerned about the Mark of the Beast being given out to the public without anyone’s knowledge. I will address this question because I imagine that many people worried about the Mark of the Beast have a similar concern. In this article, I will provide an overview of several key indicators we can look at to tell whether the Mark of the Beast is about to be given out to the public.

Revelation 13 provides an overview of the general timeframe when the Mark of the Beast will begin to be given out to the public. Revelation 13:4-7 indicates that the Antichrist will reign for 42 months at that time:

“(4) And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (5) And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. (6) And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. (7)  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Revelation 13:4-7)

The False Prophet will arise as a major player on the world stage around that time. The False Prophet will urge people to worship the Antichrist and to accept the Mark of the Beast:

“(11) And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. (12) And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed… (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.” (Revelation 13:11-12, 16-18)

The detail about the Antichrist being given power for 42 months is important because it provides us a good indication of how soon the Mark of the Beast can conceivably be given out to the public. The Antichrist will establish an abomination that causes desolation and demand the world to worship him at the midway point of the seventieth week of Daniel, the seven year period commonly referred to people as the “tribulation”: 1

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” (Daniel 9:27)

“(3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)

We can conclude from this information that the Mark of the Beast system is unlikely going to appear until at least the midway point of the seventieth week of Daniel. With this knowledge, we can now identify the indicators we need to watch out for.

1: Confirmation of the “Covenant With Many”

One important development people should watch out for is the confirmation of a seven year (one prophetic week) “covenant with many” since it is the event that will initiate the start of the seventieth week of Daniel:

And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” (Daniel 9:27)

The “covenant with many” could be a Middle East peace deal involving Israel and neighboring countries. Once the seven year covenant is confirmed there may be as little as 3.5 years before the Mark of the Beast system is put in place.

2: Extreme Global Conflict

Another thing people should watch out for is a lot of global unrest and conflict since the rise of Antichrist will be accompanied by extreme global unrest and conflict:

“(36) And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. (37) Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. (38) But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. (39) Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.” (Daniel 11:36-39)

“(3) And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see (4) And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.” (Revelation 6:3-4)

The prevalence of extreme global conflict may indicate that the Mark of the Beast could be implemented within a few years.

3: Antichrist Demands the World’s Worship

Third, people can know that the Mark of the Beast’s arrival is imminent when they see the Antichrist sitting in a Jerusalem temple and demanding to be worshipped since it will occur approximately at the midway point of the seventieth week of Daniel (compare 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 with Daniel 9:27).

The Antichrist will be someone with an unparalleled ego so I imagine this event will be broadcasted around the world. Therefore, people should be able to see this event transpire and understand that the Mark of the Beast will appear shortly.

4: Jerusalem Is Surrounded

Similarly, people can tell it is the midway point of the seventieth week/about time for the Mark of the Beast’s introduction when they see Jerusalem surrounded by armies. The surrounding of Jerusalem is indicative that Antichrist is about to establish the abomination that causes desolation:

“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.” (Luke 21:20)

5: The False Prophet Begins to Make Demands

Fifth, people will definitely know that the Mark of the Beast is ready to be given to the public when the False Prophet begins to demand that people get a mark, the name of the beast, and/or the number of the beast on their right hand or forehead if they want to be able to continue to buy or sell.

The False Prophet will try to get everyone in the world to receive a mark, the name of the beast, and/or the number of the beast’s name, so the campaign for people to become part of the Mark of the Beast system should be much publicized. As a result, people probably will hear about the public efforts to implement the Mark of the Beast system and the efforts to get everyone to be a part of the system.

Should We Worry About the Mark of the Beast?

Given all of this, I do not believe people should worry about the Mark of the Beast being introduced publicly tomorrow. There will be clear signs to look for to alert people that the implementation of the Mark of the Beast is on its way, so we do not need to lose sleep over the Mark of the Beast just yet. However, this does not mean that we should ignore the efforts by policymakers and researchers to develop the technology and infrastructure that will someday be part of the Mark of the Beast system. I have no doubt that there are people out there working to make the Mark of the Beast system a reality.

  1. The time remaining at the midway point of the seventieth week of Daniel is 42 months (3 years x 12 months in a year + 0.5 Years x 12 months in a year = 42 months).

The mark will be a choice. God will not allow any oher. It will be a hard choice . Due to the fact that you will be making the choice to work,buy,sell anything in the world system. This means those that rely on groceries,a job,electricity,gas,medecine,etc.. will have to make a very hard decision that will affect theimselves as well as their families . Now their children or spouse if they choose to acept the mark will have access to these things…but… it will cause some to betray their own family even unto death. This mark will mean an amen to… Read more »

I understand that the policies that have been created to make us believe that homosexuality is acceptable and lawful. is a make of the beast. it’s very clear to me that people are choosing to accept man’s law over God words and law. It is being called a human rights issue but this is not a truth. homosexuality is not an identity, its a behavior and behaviors can either be appropriate or inappropriate this is for God to say not man.

People think the mark of the beast is here, they are only partially correct. The beast system requires a global brain along with 5G technology and a ubiquitous connectivity. The ubiquitous connectivity system incorporates a mass low earth orbiting satellite constellation. The 5G technology, ubiquitous connection, the global brain, and its construction, investment funding was discussed at the 2017 mobile world congress. This will make up the system the beast needs and it does not yet exist, they are building it now. The latest current goal is to give 4 billion people access to the internet via satellite by 2027.… Read more »

The mark of the devil is already implanted in our society or in the public life. The mark of the devil 666. Does it not say no one can buy or sell without the mark of the devil. COMPUTER! If you assign each letters of the alphabet the value of the multiples of 6 beginning with letter A-6; B-12; C-18 ; D-24; E-30; F-36 and so on with the rest of the letters of the alphabets, the letters of the word COMPUTER will add up to 666 (six hundred sixty six) No one cen buy or sell without the mark… Read more »

Also, should add that the part about a man declaring himself God and putting the abomination in the temple already happened. The Romans destroyed the temple when they conquered the Jews and put up a statue of Zeus inside it. Caesars declared themselves living gods. So this is not a prophecy of what is to come. It’s a story about what has already happened.

Or is it a type of what is to come as so many events/prophecies in the Bible are?

There is a few problems at play here. The first problem is that the book of Revelation just barely made it into the Bible. It was believed to portray a different Jesus from the one portrayed in the Gospels. For example, Jesus in Revelation is a monster with white hair and glowing eyes. Second, the mark of the beast is based on numerology, a practice that is supposedly forbidden by the bible as it is occult in nature. At the time that Revelation was written numerology and astrology were viewed as sciences but today are not accepted. Third, the oldest… Read more »

It is unfortunate that you and those teaching you do not understand how important the book of Revelation is. It written by John the apostle and there is a blessing upon it for everyone who reads and heeds what is written in it. Much of it refers back to Daniel and what is taught there, and also other things that are in the Old and New Testament. It is the capstone of the Bible telling us what is to come. The reason for the emphasis, is because of its importance in God’s eyes. He put a special blessing on this… Read more »

The mark of the beast is spiritual, and identical to the pledge of allegiance to the flag…When the Germans used their right hand to salute Hitler, or to pledge allegiance to the flag, there was no physical mark in the right hand, or forehead, because the mark (name) of the beast (Hitler), or of the flag (Germany), was spiritual…When the US citizens use their right hand to salute the service men, or salute the flag, or pledge allegiance to the flag, there is no physical mark in the right hand, or forehead, because the mark (name) of the flag (US),… Read more »

The mark is already there… and people are queueing and paying to have it in their hands. The 6th letter of Jewish alphabet is waw (w). 666 = www = the Internet. Go anywhere today, in the metro, park, airport, everyone is bent on to their smartphone in a obvious attitude of worship. It’s managed to disconnect us from real relationships and occupy all of our free time. Moreover, virtually all payments nowaday go through the Internet (including your weekly shopping when you pay by card). The mark on forehead is almost there (virtual reality headset). Nowhere in the Bible… Read more »

Jeevan, I too was very concerned about this RFID chip, and it was in the works to be implemented in the USA, but, a Christian named Dr Katherine Albrecht was able to prove it causes cancer, Thank God!!! Katherine has a wonderful youtube video out regarding this RFID chip called “Say No to the RFID Tagged World -anyway, i believe that was in 2013, fast forward to now, and the new RFID system looks even worse, there are at least 3 different varieties they are working on and improving by the day by leaps and bounds, the invisible tattoo is… Read more »
