When Is the Mark of the Beast Coming & Will You Be Forced to Get It?

Many people worry about the Mark of the Beast. Some people fear that the Mark of the Beast has already arrived. Others fear they already have accepted the Mark of the Beast.

Do you need to live in fear of the Mark of the Beast? In this article, I will provide you with biblical answers to these questions about the Mark of the Beast:

  • When is the Mark of the Beast coming?
  • Will you be forced to accept the Mark of the Beast?
  • Can you get the Mark of the Beast without knowing it?

When is the Mark of the Beast Coming?

Some claim that the Mark of the Beast is already here. However, that claim overlooks the fact that many events still need to take place before the Mark of the Beast arrives.

In this section, I will provide you an overview of 5 can’t-miss events we can look for to tell whether the Mark of the Beast is about to be given out to the public.

The Mark of the Beast’s Introduction

Revelation 13 gives us strong clues about 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 figure on the world stage at that time. He 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 matters. This detail provides us a good sense of how soon the Mark of the Beast can conceivably be introduced to the public.

The Antichrist will set up an abomination of desolation (an act or an object detestable to God) and demand the world to worship him at the midpoint of 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 to appear before the midpoint of the tribulation. With this knowledge, here are 5 can’t-miss events that’ll let us know that the Mark of the Beast is near.

1. The “Covenant With Many”

One important event you should watch for is the confirmation of a 7-year “covenant with many”. This event will occur at the start of the tribulation (also known as the 70th 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” will likely be a Mideast peace deal involving Israel and others. Once the 7-year covenant is confirmed there may be as little as 3.5 years before the Mark of the Beast arrives.

2. Global Conflict

You should also watch out for an outbreak of global conflict with one leader dominating strong opponents. The reason to watch for this event is that the rise of the Antichrist will come at a time of global conflict (Revelation 6:3-4). Antichrist will wage war against strong opponents and win (Daniel 11:36-39):

“(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. […] (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)

If you see this take place, you may only have a few years before the Mark of the Beast arrives.

3. Antichrist Demands the World’s Worship

You will know that the Mark of the Beast is about to arrive when you see the Antichrist demand worship in a Jerusalem temple. This event will occur at the midpoint of the tribulation (compare 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 with Daniel 9:27).

This event will likely be shown around the world because it will be the Antichrist’s first public claim that he is God. If you see this, realize that the Mark of the Beast is imminent.

4: Armies Surround Jerusalem

Armies will surround Jerusalem just prior to the set up of the abomination of desolation:

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

If you see this event, you will know that the midpoint of the tribulation and the Mark of the Beast is near.

Event 5: Sacrifice in a Jerusalem Temple

Antichrist will set up the abomination of desolation in a temple in Jerusalem where daily sacrifice will occur (Daniel 9:27). Therefore, the abomination of desolation cannot be set up without:

  • A temple first being built in Jerusalem and
  • daily sacrifice beginning in that temple.

If you hear about the start of either of these developments, be aware that the abomination of desolation may come soon and the Mark of the Beast is near.

Will You Be Forced to Accept the Mark of the Beast?

Many people fear they will be forced to accept the Mark of the Beast against their will. Do you need to worry? Find out in this section.

The Mark of the Beast’s Main Purpose

We need to understand the Mark of the Beast’s main purpose to answer if you will be forced to accept it.

Revelation 13 states that the False Prophet will cause people to get a special mark on their right hand or on their forehead. Although the mark will enable a person to buy and sell, a person could get by with having the beast’s number or the name of the beast (verse 17):

“(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.” (Revelation 13:16-17)

It is important to recognize that a person can also buy or sell using the name or number of the beast. This suggests that people do not get the Mark of the Beast just so that they buy or sell (although people probably will receive a mark during the process of getting the beast’s name or number).

The Mark of the Beast’s main purpose is to serve as a way for people to prove that their allegiances are with Antichrist. In other words, accepting the Mark of the Beast means that you have declared yourself a follower of the Antichrist and thereby an opponent of God.

Given the main purpose of the Mark of the Beast, it is unlikely that the Mark of the Beast will be given to you against your will. Here are the problems that would arise if you were forced to accept the Mark of the Beast against your will:

  • The Mark of the Beast would lose a lot of its symbolic significance as a way to show loyalty to the Antichrist.
  • It would become much more difficult for the authorities to identify true, loyal followers of the Antichrist.
  • There would be fewer necessities of life for the true supporters of the Antichrist as opponents would be able to buy and sell items with their Mark. This would pose a big problem at a time when necessities like food will be in short supply.

The Mark of the Beast Will Be a Choice

We can see that the Mark of the Beast will be a choice by the fact that not everyone will accept it. Revelation 20:4 recognizes a group of beheaded individuals who are without the Mark.

“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years” (Revelation 20:4)

The fact that people had the choice to say “no” means that the Mark of the Beast was not forced upon them. The people cited in Revelation 20:4 rejected the Mark of the Beast because they stood strongly for their beliefs.

With that said, the authorities will go to extremes to compel people to “voluntarily” become part of the Mark of the Beast system:

  • They will deny people without the Mark of the Beast the ability to buy and sell.
  • They will brutally oppress those who have not yet become part of the Mark of the Beast system.

Therefore, you will be given a choice about whether to opt into the Mark of the Beast system or not. The choice is basically: become part of the system or survive on your own. It’s not an appealing choice, but there’s a choice nonetheless.

Can You Get the Mark of the Beast Without Knowing It?

The Mark of the Beast is not here yet nor will you be forced to get it against your will. However, is it possible for you to get the Mark of the Beast without knowing it?

The Mark of the Beast system will not be implemented without you knowing it. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. As shown earlier, we have a good idea of when the Mark of the Beast will arrive. The fact that we have an idea about when the Mark of the Beast will arrive suggests that its coming is not meant to blindside those of us who pay attention to what’s happening.
  2. Recall that people will have a choice about whether to accept the Mark of the Beast. The existence of this choice implies that people will be made aware of the Mark of the Beast’s existence and the consequences of not accepting it.
  3. Consider the public role that the False Prophet will play in the acceptance of the Mark of the Beast.

The Role of the False Prophet

The False Prophet will gain a huge following after he performs miracles that will astonish the world:

“(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. (13) And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, (14) And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. (15) And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” (Revelation 13:12-15)

The False Prophet will then use his huge following to persuade the people of Earth to worship the Antichrist and to accept the Mark of the Beast:

“(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:” (Revelation 13:12, 16)

The False Prophet’s efforts to persuade people to accept the Mark of the Beast will be a major success as the acceptance of the Mark of the Beast will be widespread:

“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:” (Revelation 13:16)

It is unlikely that the False Prophet will get so many people to accept the Mark of the Beast without a public effort to persuade them to take the Mark. Therefore, it is likely that the False Prophet will conduct a major public campaign to promote the need for people to accept the Mark of the Beast. Most people will listen to the False Prophet’s instructions.

Therefore, you should not worry about getting the Mark of the Beast unknowingly.

Should We Worry About the Mark of the Beast?

We do not need to worry about the Mark of the Beast just yet. There’ll be clear signs to look for to alert us that the Mark of the Beast is on its way. Also, we will not be forced to accept the Mark of the Beast against our will. We do not need to lose any sleep over the Mark of the Beast at the moment.

If you’re still afraid that the Mark of the Beast is being implemented now despite all I said, consider this:

  • We do not have a 7-year covenant yet.
  • We are not living in a time of major global conflict yet.
  • We do not yet have a temple in Jerusalem where daily sacrifice is taking place as outlined in Daniel 9:27.
  • The Antichrist is not demanding the world’s worship.
  • We do not have a False Prophet who is performing miracles yet.

Nevertheless, this does not mean that we should ignore the efforts 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 working to make the Mark of the Beast system a reality.

  1. I don’t believe the popular theology that the seventh week of Daniel’s prophecy, has been cut off and hurtled into the future, just before Christ returns. I believe it was Jesus who confirmed the covenant with many, by his sacrifice for us all in the middle of the last week of Daniel’s prophecy, which began in 457B.C. Also, all time prophesies are on a day for a year basis, just like Daniel’s 70 weeks or Num.14:34 or Ezek.4:6. The early Protestants were right to identify the papacy as the Antichrist. For biblical proof, watch Mark Woodman’s video, “Who is the Antichrist”. Also, I don’t believe a rebuilt Jewish temple could be called a temple of God. Jesus made the final sacrifice for sin. Animal sacrifices will no longer please God. It is the pope who presents himself in the church as being God. It is also the papacy which ruled from 538 A.D. to 1798 A.D. (1260 days/years) before Napoleon’s general took him captive and confiscated church property. All time prophesies are fulfilled. For biblical proof of the beast’s identity, Watch Mark Woodman’s video, “Who is the Antichrist”. We know that to avoid the mark and go to heaven, Christian’s must keep the commandments of God. See Rev.12:17, 14:12, 22:14. Most Christians follow the command of popes rather than God. The pope says to honor Sunday, the pagan day for sun worship. God says to remember the Sabbath to keep it holy. See Exod.20:8-11. Despite what priests and preachers say, the law cannot be changed. See Matt.5:17-19. Sabbath is the sign between God and his people. Exod.31:13, Ezek.20:12. God warned us that the little horn (Antichrist, pope) would think to change times and laws in Dan.7:25. Research this. Then join us in warning the world.

  2. I would like to know who were the 144,000 thousand in revelation. and I would like more information about the 666, what do it really mean in todays society well who is the beast I know that it is a man,but what kind of man.

    • The 144,000 represent the first fruits of a redeemed Israel in the future. They are not people who existed in the past. They are people who may be alive now or in the future.

      The mark of the beast represents a pledge of loyalty to a man, the Antichrist. Get the Mark of the Beast and you have declared yourself a follower of the Antichrist, and thereby an opponent of God.

  3. “People are not pledging loyalty to the Antichrist right now. People are not worshipping the Antichrist. He isn’t here yet.” – Wayne

    Are you sure about that?

  4. re: the mark, the bible says he causeth…so basically, anything can go under that – forced, voluntary, unknowingly, deceievement, delusion (or the grt delusion, which is happening now) & that’s more evidence that it’s the vaxx from test & jab

    • I believe what your all forgetting is that Satan needs the third temple to be available for him to be worshipped in. and that, until the third temple in Jerusalem has started to be built the mark of the beast want start to happen to materialize. However, I will say that the implementation of the covid vaccine has created fear in people which has caused them to actually take the vaccine weather it was forced or coerced . Therefor the people will know that, just like they did with the covid vaccine ,when the mark of the beast has come. It will then be their choice to take it or not to take it. So as this experiment with covid has shown, fear will take hold of people and those that don’t believe or at least have minimal faith in our Lord will take the mark of the beast as they believe they have no choice.

        • Appreciate your perspective. I have considered what, when and how The Mark of the Beast would be implemented and the time of Christians removal from this earth. Many scholars such as yourself have studied and drawn different conclusions on the endtimes happenings. I hold to the pre-trib rapture and that may be a more selfish position on my part being I would rather not have to encounter that time. But I do recognize the fact that it is very controversial and all sides can make a reasonable case. So I guess from a more rational stand point I don’t know for sure and really the most important factor in Christianity is Salvation. My “preference” or leaning on the endtimes has no bearing on my Salvation, nor should it. I have come to the conclusion that Jesus said that “ no one knows the day or the hour” and that everything concerning the endtimes where to be “signs” of His coming. He also said that we should not be concerned when we see these things come to pass. So I do not have a problem with expressing an opinion about the matter as long as we only accept it as opinion and/or nothing more than man’s attempt in trying to understand God’s ultimate plan, in which we are incapable. So as we look at the endtimes I think the key thing to understand in any fundamental perspective is that the endtimes signs are to drive people to the Savior and be ready when He comes.

          • I’m glad that you’re strong enough to hold onto your faith and convictions regardless of what happens. Unfortunately, I’m not so sure others are quite so strong. This is why I put in the effort to educate people about the dangers that are ahead for Christians. It’s best to expect and prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

        • I have heard but not confirmed that there are architechture plans already in place, that the Jewish rabbis are trying to get it built.

          • They have a lot of the things needed that go inside the temple ready. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Third Temple is a complex that would allow for worship by several faiths.

  5. If we refuse the mark knowing we are going to starve to death, can we take pills to overdose to speed up the agony of starvation? Or is that a sure way to get to hell?

  6. I do not believe mouth swab test is the mark you have to take the test to have surgery , and if it has bad stuff in it can you not be forgiven for taken it if you did not know it had bad stuff why would God trick you and let you take the mark in a test swab , but also the blood covers us we are sealed , I fought and fought bad dreams and feeling God left me after taking the test but i asked God to clean my blood and dna and forgive me and i invoked the blood of Jesus , i have prayed and fasted and i keep going , I do not think people should tell others that they took the mark of the beast in a test swab it make
    people kill them selves . I am seeking God every day and i believe in miracle so i believe he will once again let me feel his spirit and , i believe i am all ready forgiven

    • it’s the rt pcr dnatest that gives the actual mark (in full) – u can read my comments from earlier posts which has all the info abt it…can u plz tell me how 2 ask god 2 clean my blood & dna — as an autistic, prayers (communication) is hard 4 me…also, how do u know that u r truly 4given???

      • The test is NOT the Mark and the vaccine is NOT the Mark. We are not living in the tribulation, so it’s not possible for these things to be the Mark. Don’t listen to all the wild speculation out there.

    • there r a couple of points nwant 2 make here,
      1. if any one takes the mark, they will feel the wrath of god, so if u r 4given, that’s cuz it didn’t include the full mark, but if u had a rt cr dna test (the only test i’m aware of that gives u the full mark), or 3 jabs of the vaxx, u will not b 4given…
      2.yes, u can b tricked into taking the mark during what is called the grt delusion, which is happening now…in revelaion 14:14-20, it talks abt the earth’s harvest…

  7. I don’t think the vaccine is the Mark of the Beast, but the deceptiveness of it and the Satanic control surrounding it is going to progress to it. We’re told it’s all done in the name of public health, but those who have murdered over 1.6 billion babies (see the abortion clock) and want to depopulate the world by 90% are the ones telling us they have to lock us down and violate our God-given rights because they want to save every life possible. It’s absurd. They have zero credibility. First of all, the vaccine is not a vaccine. It’s a bioweapon. Secondly, there are already countries that are requiring the vaccine and are requiring proof. I have students in Europe and many other countries who tell me horror stories of the tyrannical edicts they are submitted to. I live in the U.S. and here in Washington State, our rights have been trampled upon severely. In California, they were shutting off people’s electricity and water if they gathered in numbers larger than permitted, but I digress. We’re constantly hearing here in the U.S. on the news that there are fraudulent vaccine certificates. It’s all propaganda. They are preparing the sheep who live in fear and have already taken the vaccine to be willing to do anything in order to prove they are vaccinated because they don’t want to lose their job or comfort. Vaccines are going to be required in order to work at certain jobs and in order to buy or sell. In order to prove one had the vaccine, he will eventually have to have an implant that will digitally prove who you are and what your status is. They’re going to create more and more fake emergencies in order to take total control. All of this has already been planned for years (or perhaps centuries because Satan is behind it). He’s the Prince of the Power of the Air. Some countries are actually withholding people’s paychecks and shutting down their phones if they don’t take the vaccine. You should look up ID2020. As for the right hand or forehead, anyone who is a double-hand amputee will have to have the implant in their forehead. You can scan it there. You can’t scan their hand because they don’t have any. Pretty simple. People who live in fear and love their life will capitulate to the Mark and the Beast. I’ve already seen pastors who were incredible over twenty years ago buy into Social Justice, Critical Race Theory and so many of the deceptions that are going to be used to persecute the Christians who oppose those lies. We’re being prepared for the Mark of the Beast. I think the Great Tribulation is right around the corner. I also believe there is going to be a great falling away as the Bible tells us and that the saints will be here during the tribulation (at least part) or else the Anti-Christ wouldn’t be able to kill them. Also, the Son of Perdition must be revealed first. We’re definitely living in perilous times and we’re quickly heading into the most perilous. Matthew 24:10-14 “At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

    • the covid jabs r also the mark – it takes 3 of them 2 get the full mark, while the rt pcr dna test gives it once…i took it unknowingly w’out being told what’s in it (& u can read my earlier posts 4 more info)…initially, the makers of these vaxxs no longer have 2 tell what’s in the vaxxes cuz they know that if people knew, they’d lose their money (it’s all abt the $)…it’s related 2 the new world order…

  8. The NIV bible differs in the language used for if people will be able to buy or sell without the mark: “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of hte beast or the number of its name.”
    I think that it will be setup in a way that a person will have to take the mark to buy or sell regardless if they know the name or the number which to me makes generally more sense. But I suppose it could be argued based on the translations in use, but even so I don’t see how knowing the name or number would be a factor in buying or selling.

    You said in an earlier comment that tattoo could be the mark but then discounted that an invisible to the eye tattoo could be. The Quantum dot technology has been under development for a while now. It uses the Luciferase enzyme as a marker that once applied would be invisible to the eye but could be seen with a scanner. This quantum applicator is a vaccine delivery mechanism that one can apply to themselves with a bandaid like device. What better way to convince the worlds population to get the mark than to coerce them under the guise of returning to normal or giving some of their freedoms back. At least that will be the initial work up to it, while scanners are being installed in various stores. The quantum dot tattoo will also be tied to your digial id and a digital vaccine passport. The digital ID is part of id2020. This will allow people to be associated with the fact that they took the vaccine and who didn’t. There is also a related patent held by microsoft: WO2020060606A1 that talks about using the body as a crypto currency miner. So in that regard they would have to have injected something into your body and a way to track that it was done. That crypto currency would also likely be tied with your global digital id and be the primary means to buying and selling. Curious too the patent number clearly having 666 in it.
    The world economic forum is also pushing this great reset and new world order. Which will re-organize the world government into a single government structure. The world bank has already caused a huge issue with the currency we are using today and have paved a fairly clear path to a global single currency.
    That is at least a fairly short summary of some of the technology behind it. It is being pushed very heavily by bill and melinda gates. There are interviews out there where melinda gates is wearing an upside down cross.

    • To clarify, I don’t believe the Mark of the Beast is a thing that a person can get without knowing it. A person will know that they are taking the Mark. A visible tattoo is something a person knows they’ll get. This is why I didn’t rule out a visible tattoo.

      • the vax will be mandated &the rt pcr test marks u 2, (as said b4), & yes, u can take it uninowingly — read my past comments abt the dna change, luciferious, micro needles, becoming magnetic 2 b set up 2 the beast system, the invisible ink tatoo/ the mark itself, the buy/sell, image of beast, name # of a man 666…u r the third temple that the anti christ will sit in, so u r literally worshiping the beast…also, there r trackng chips, chips that can read ur mind, digital id’s — basically, the fully controll u & kill u as well…as 4 the dna, its known as transumanism= chimera, cyborg, artificial intelligence – so u become a nephelium (fallen angel & r no longer a human & jesus only died for mankind…i actually felt the chips being implanted ( i have autism so i’m more sensitive then neuro-typicals), as well as a liquid (a medicine that the vaxes r based from) that will kill u in a few yrs (depopulation — georgia stones)

      • one more thing re: the mark — bill gates actually said it was the mark & a few days ago, the un said it was gonna b mandatory…it will be in the booster shot of all vaxes…however, i did recently learn that there is an antidote & other supplements that can help u detox from it (unlike what is being said)…one other bit of impt info – if i haven’t said it earlier, is that the jabs destroy ur god gene when the 5g is in & ur set up 2 it in the cloud -if not b4…initially can happen after the 1st jab, but it depends on the person’s hlt…luckily, that hasn’t happened 2 me – yet, but the opposite happened 2 me..initially, cuz of my autism, i’m unable 2 recognize god’s presense, voice, & warning signs…i can only read/processthe literal parts of the bible & not even all that…even thou i know rite from wrong, i don’t always know when i’m sinning cuz things have 2 b written down/ listed & explained…i was able 2 feel a small burning/tingle of the spirit, but that’s all…however, now, not only do i feel it more frequently, but it’s more intense…nothing had changed b4 this happened as i never rejected or turned away from him – i didn’t /don’t even blame him 4 this…i was never even gonna take the test vax – only cuz i didn’t think a hlthy person should takeit 2 c if they were sick when it should have been the other way around…i only took it 4hospital admission & that was not willingy…i felt forced, pressured,threatened, but i needed the care as i was bleeding internally (keep in mind people w’ autism don’t understand emotions)…besides, y do u think the government is pushing this so hard 4 a fakedemic…this is exactly y they did this – so they can do a reset 2 start the nwo…

      • Lol. Yes I figured as much . I read an article about the vaccine and the coronavirus. The Rockefellers were talking about it(coronavirus) back in 2015.hmmmm. Also bill gates says the the vaccine is trackable by a chip or tattoo,videos are on YouTube or research.
        Vaccine may be a set up to the mark of the beast as they are pushing like crazy to get a vaccine. I live in Ottawa Canada they aren’t hiding the 666 symbols here. Look at the welcome to Ottawa sign 1,000,000 the letter O in Ottawa is 666.I made to videos on my YouTube channel (short),one about 666 everywhere in plan sight in Ottawa and one video showing Ontario Canada with medivel occult symbol on it,this symbol is also on our
        Health cards n drivers licenses. Can you give me your feed back on this, should I be living in ontario or using the health card or my drivers license. I’m subscribed to your YouTube channel just click on my name it will bring you to my channel. Tks.

        • I wouldn’t live in fear of the Mark of the Beast yet. The introduction of the Mark of the Beast is not something they would try to hide or bring stealthily. Otherwise, the Mark of the Beast would have no value serving as a sign that someone is loyal to the Antichrist. Also the third angel warning in Revelation 14 suggests that people will know what the Mark of the Beast actually is at that time.

          Resources will be scare at the time of the Mark of the Beast’s introduction. The authorities at that time would want to ensure that only true followers of the Antichrist can get access to scarce resources. Otherwise, people who don’t deserve access will have access to those resources. Fewer resources to go around for those who “deserve” access to them.

          • I appreciate you sharing your knowledge. I agree with you about the Mark of the Beast. We will be made aware just as you stated (as the Bible teaches) and because the Antichrist is self centered and will be seeking fame and glory. Everything will be done openly – not secretly just as you explained. The COVID vaccines and the way they are currently administered, are unable to “be set up” to give any type of Mark of the Beast. I won’t go into scientific reasons why this currently isn’t possible, but it isn’t. I’m sure you know all this Wayne. Plus, as you explained, there will be a visable Mark of the Beast on the hand or forehead. Also, do people really believe that our loving merciful Father God who sent His Son to die for OUR SINS so that we could have the free gift of eternal life would really allow us to be “tricked” into getting the Mark of the Beast? God doesn’t play games. He isn’t going to give us a choice to accept the free gift of eternal life and then prank us to take it away. No. We have a choice. Accept or don’t accept. OUR choice. There is no reason for fear. If we belong to the Lord we need to stay close to Him, stay in His will, stay in His Word, follow Him. Maybe we need to get off bad social media and stay on good social media. Maybe we need to start thinking for ourselves and go to the Lord first with our questions and stop listening to false news and misinformation.
            Maybe we should stop making everything a political and/or Mark of the Beast issue. I’m not saying yes or no to COVID vaccination, but think about the vaccines many of you received as children and teenagers. Vaccines are intended to be a good thing for health reasons. Let’s try to remember to follow the Lord and ask Him what we should do. May we seek the Lord and His will. May we stay in His word and not allow the father of all lies to whisper things in our ears that are not of God. May we think and reason by asking the Lord for wisdom. And may we never be afraid. “. . . If God is for us who can be against us?”

      • Also I believe they will put the virus in the vaccine, within a month or so people will start getting sick so they can force the chip.

        • The passport wouldn’t be the Mark of the Beast either. The passport would be evidence that someone got a vaccine. It’s not expressing one’s loyalty to the beast. The beast in the Mark of the Beast system is the Antichrist, a real person. Not a system or an idea.

          • Clearly you are blind and ignorant. People are pledging to the system. They are taking it willingly because of fear . Just because it is not fully implemented yet it does not mean it has not arrived.Let me guess you took the vaccine and are in denial . Did you take it or not? When you ignore your God given instincts because of your Ego you will fall. Most people already worship the system and are in denial. Loyalty program to the Beast is here.

          • Linking the vaccine to the Mark implies that we are in the tribulation now. We are NOT in the tribulation. This would be the weakest tribulation ever if we were in it now. The tribulation will be a very difficult time on Earth. A much worse time than what we are living in now. If you think I’m blind and ignorant, go read someone else.

      • The abomination of desolation as it relates to a 3rd temple. Is not found anywhere in scripture.
        Daniel 9 is not talking about the end times its talking about Jesus coming to die for us. Daniel 9 verse 24 “ to bring in everlasting righteousness” “To make an end of sins” “anoint the most holy” “To make reconciliation for iniquity”

        verse 25 “Until messiah the prince”

        Verse 26 “Messiah will be cut off but not for himself” Not for himself because he died for us.

        Verse 27 “ He shall bring an end of sacrifice and offerings” That’s what Jesus did when he died for us. No need for sacrifice and offerings

        Doesn’t sound like Antichrist making an abomination in the new temple.

        He makes desolate the offerings. Continuing to sacrifice animals and not excepting our Lord Jesus sacrifice is the abomination.

        • Matthew 24:15-21 literally refers to the abomination of desolation of Daniel 9. It’s portrayed as a future event since the great tribulation, the worst persecution of all time, immediately follows that event. The Apostle Paul describes a future scene in 2 Thessalonians 2 where Antichrist is in the temple of God, demanding worship.

          Daniel 9 speaks partially about the end times, primarily the 70th week of Daniel. We don’t have everlasting righteous yet. That is still to come.

  10. There’s a video on YouTube that says on October 1st, 2020 people will be forced to take the RDIF Chip/The Mark Of The Beast. Is this true?

    • Don’t worry about it. That’s impossible. The Mark of the Beast won’t arise until after the midpoint of the tribulation (3.5 years through). October 1, 2020 implies that the tribulation started back in 2017, which it didn’t. The video is wrong.

      • I’ve been watching the news, and forcing people to take a vaccine in order to keep their job and buy or sell in the marketplace is almost here. But like those people who thought they would have been taken in the rapture just before having to make this choice of whether to take the jab and carry the ID proof, I perceive that it is a big mistake to trust that there will be no Mark of the Beast until the mid point of the Great tribulation- because sadly, you sound exactly like them. Thinking you know what time it is, but failing to realize that you might be wrong about some of it. So it turns out you have helped me see some good things here, but you have also shown me that even enlightened folks can pin their hopes on events that they truly have no control over. And tgey won’t budge because they wrote a book, and don’t want to look like a false prophet. But if you lead people to take the mark of the beast because they believed there would not be a mark of the beast yet (so this or that can not be it) , you are an agent of the false prophet. So I hope you re-think the whole time frame being set in some kind of stone , for God’s sake, because there clearly is a mark coming, and all who refuse it will be the objects of the wrath of satan. All who join in the demonization of those who refuse it are willingly enlisting in the beast’s army.
        Gos bless, and open your mind and heart to re-think your interpretation of the timing of the mark, so you won’t be caught unaware and take the mark thinking the mark was not here yet. That’s exactly how the pretrib rapture belief will shake the faith of many sincere Christians and make them doubt the truth of the Bible. I’m thankful I found your site. You seem to be seeking God’s truth. I hope you don’t get tricked into joining the number / multitudes, multitudes of the beast, by trying to set the day and time of the sequence of events and feeling safe that until a certain thing happens, the mark has not come. God please open your eyes!

        • I strongly disagree with you comparing my mindset to the followers of the Pre-Trib Rapture. I don’t sensationalize events. I try to keep a calm demeanor when I analyze what is taking place around us.

          The Mark of the Beast is linked with the worshipping of the Antichrist. To take the Mark of the Beast means that you’ve pledge your loyalty to the Antichrist and thereby declared yourself an enemy of God. People are not pledging loyalty to the Antichrist right now. People are not worshipping the Antichrist. He isn’t here yet.

          You may see some similarities with the methods being used to compel people to take the vaccine and the methods that may be used to compel people to take the Mark of the Beast later down the road. However, that doesn’t mean the vaccine is the Mark.

          I focus on the midpoint of the tribulation and beyond for the Mark of the Beast because that is where we see the Antichrist begin to receive worship by the world. He sets up the abomination of desolation at the midpoint of the tribulation and declares himself god (2 Thessalonians 2). Revelation indicates that people will marvel at the Antichrist and ask “who can make war with him?”.

          To have the Mark of the Beast appear earlier than the midpoint of the tribulation would imply that the world would worship the Antichrist earlier than Antichrist asking the world to worship him.

  11. Its here you guys. TRUMP is the leader FIGHTING both parties..
    Caronavirus means Crown Serpant… So the only way is to die?

  12. Wayne,
    Once again you hit it out of the park! Getting the mark of the beast will be a WILLFUL act that says “I put my full faith and loyalty to this man-made government and I no longer put my faith in Jesus Christ.” It will be the equivalent of completely and finally denying the lordship of Christ over that person. Of course a person, not agreeing to be marked, etc, will come with the consequence of having to be martyred or die a gruesome death as many of the prophets, Christ, apostles and people even today must experience.

    • it is not a willfill act, people r taking it 4 w’out being informed abt what it is…these vaxx makers no longer have 2 tell what’s in the actual vaxx

  13. Hi Alhough I do not agree, there are already people who are posting online that the Corona virus is of Satan, and that anyone taking the upcoming vaccine, which numerically equals 666, will actually be taking the Mark of the Beast. Could you please address this misconception. Thanks, Russell

  14. Hi, thanks for your teachings. It has helped me deal with many concerns.
    My worry with this is that the bar codes on goods already have the number 666 embedded within them. There are 2 thick bars at the beginning, middle and end of every barcode. A chip, similar to that being trialled (and inserted in the right hand) could also include this number.

    I also worry about the possibility of a mandatory vaccine and invisible tattoo (to show you have received the vaccine), already in discussions, following the recent virus outbreak. It seems the signs are there so what should we do?

    • I wouldn’t worry about mandatory vaccines and invisible tattoos being associated with the Mark of the Beast. As I mentioned, it’s main purpose is to show loyalty to the Antichrist. This is not something they’re going to try to implement without you knowing it. You’ll have plenty of warning.

  15. Hi,

    I am so happy I stumbled upon this article with very obvious research to it. I am 23 and have been looking a lot into the microchips in Sweden, they are implanted in the right hand and contain bank information, medical records, and car/house keys. Currently, only a couple thousand have it and it is not mandatory. Is it possible this is the Mark if a leader backs it? I am worried because I am so young and it seems like if this becomes global I would have to have a lot of suffering. Would moving to a farm really help so I could at least grow my own food?

    • Hi Amy,

      Right now the microchip program you’re describing is not introducing the Mark of the Beast. The Mark of the Beast’s primary tool is to show that someone is a follower of the Antichrist. The microchip is currently not being used in that way. It’s possible for a microchip to be part of the Mark of the Beast system someday, but it’s likely to be a different type (or different generation) of microchip. I wouldn’t worry about people being enrolled into the Mark of the Beast system retroactively because they already had a microchip placed in them before the Antichrist arrived. They didn’t accept the microchip knowing the end time consequences of what would happen by accepting it.

      It would be good to know how to grow your own food. It’d help you when times get tough and you may save some money by not having to buy some food at the store.

      • I’ve heard this as well. Can you really be sure to say forced vaccinations won’t alter us and change our dna making it impossible to get in. It would be bowing down to authority and getting it inside the hand. Eventually they will tell us we need it to travel or buy things starving out or killing the ones that refuse. I love reading your opinions just wondering what you think of the Illuminati new world order plans and also are you familiar with the book the last president written in 1896 about baron trump. Also trumps paster growing up is a free mason

        • I think the movement/plan towards global governance may have been disrupted temporarily by the coronavirus. I noticed how many are now advocating for the US to decouple from China, so the US is not so dependent on China for many things. Also, the way the virus spread throughout the world has reminded some leaders that having control over your borders is important. Therefore, I think we see global governance efforts slowed in the short-term, but not derailed in the long-run. Antichrist will someday have an empire whose sphere of influence will dominate the world.

        • the vax & covid tests do alter ur dna (transhumanism)…the vax isn’t a real vax, but a gene experiment…

        • also, u can take it unknowingly — the bible has been altered…i’ve seen some that contradict each other, missing passages, changed words ( which change the meaningof the sentence…4 example, some say the mark will b forced & others cause…also, it says that u will know what it is & choose 2 take it, while i know of people who took it unknowingly

      • I do not think it is as simple as you are suggesting. I believe that acceptance of a society where permission is required to buy and sell is worshipping the beast. Such a system is a false idol in and of itself. So perhaps the vaccine is not the mark of the beast, but any vaccine passport could well be.

    • Depends on your circumstances. If you’re a follower of Christ, you will be able to participate in the Rapture. If you’re part of the remnant of Israel, you will gain entry to Millennial Israel. If you’re neither and you survive, you’re likely to be part of the Sheep and Goat Judgment which is described in Matthew 25:31-46.

      • I just watched a video that basically said the Pope is going to try to enforce a law for sabbath on Sunday and that if you abide by the law you are receiving the mark of the beast and worshiping falsely…? That the pope is basically the beginning of it all and it will happen in May 2020? I’m only 23. I really don’t want to lose my life so early by refusing the mark. I’m really scared and shaken up by this 🙁

        • Relax Haylee, the mark of the beast is not the Sunday sabbath, and to my knowledge the pope has no ability to enforce that around the world anyhow at this point. Nor have I heard that he is trying to. That is a Seventh Day Adventist belief, but it is not scriptural at all. The mark is an actual mark of some kind (to yet be determined) that will be taken on your right hand or forehead to pledge your allegiance to the antichrist. It does not begin until the middle of Daniel’s 70th week, which has not yet begun, so at minimum if that seven year week were to start right now (which it isn’t to date) you would still have 3 1/2 years until it would be a mandate. Don’t start worrying about it until you see a temple go up in Jerusalem. That’s the first thing that must happen. Then the scriptures would say that you couldn’t be forced to take it (you would have the choice of death), as nothing outside of ourselves can forcibly take us out of God’s hand. At some point in the future, death may very well have to be your choice, but as a Christian that is the understanding when we accept Christ, that we be willing to literally take up our cross and be crucified with Him. He wasn’t being metaphorical when He said that to His followers, He was being literal and some of them had to do exactly that. Die on a cross. The thing to do is make sure your relationship with God through Christ is in a good place. Then if you were to die in an accident or from illness tomorrow, you would be fine. We never know how many days we have.

        • Relax Haylee. The person who made that video has absolutely no idea what they’re talking about when it comes to Bible prophecy. Most people who make videos have no idea what they’re talking about. Ignore the date setters. I’ve been dealing with people who set dates for years and they’re always wrong. There’s nothing to worry about 🙂

  16. Thank you Wayne(!!!!!) for clarifying the events leading to the mark of the beast.

    Everything you(the bible) said also corroborates PERFECTLY with the dream that Ken Peters had decades ago.

    Search: Ken Peters ” I Saw The Tribulation” at 888(dot)com and other places.

    I can verify reading this in early 2000-ish and nothing has been back adjusted.

    The pyramid he describes, I believe is the Luxor in Las Vegas.

    Military hum-humvees were purchased by local govts probably about less than 10 years ago.

    Also…I recommend listening to Katt Kerr on youtube. She has been to heaven probably hundreds of times and says
    God will provide a sanctuary for the mark of the beast times for the believers.

  17. I have been stressing over this for months, thinking that we are all going to starve to death because of the mark. Would you have any comforting words to put me at ease.

    • Hi Evral,

      There’s no reason to worry about the Mark of the Beast at this point in time. You quite possibly may not see the implementation of the Mark of the Beast system in your lifetime even if you live to an advanced age.

      Sometimes we worry about things that we can’t control, but usually 95% of the time the things we worry about don’t end up happening to us. But through worrying, we rob ourselves of our ability to live life today.

      Christ told us to not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will take thought of itself. It will not be a good time to be alive when the Mark of the Beast comes, but you may not be alive when it is actually time for it to arrive.

  18. The beast is the same identified by all of the early Protestants, even the Baptists. Hardly any still preach against it. This is because the beast has an army devoted to its cause, infiltrating seminaries and governments. Even now it is pushing his mark. Total enforcement may still be years away, but churches and labor unions and others are supporting the mark, both in the name of God and in the cause of stopping environmental change. Watch the lecture “Who is the Antichrist” by Mark Woodman to get the full picture. The beast is here now. The actual Antichrist may be also.

    • Wrong. Maga means Make america Great AGAIN. Return TO the Time when america was Great AND bible was taucht in houehold.before THIS Evil Technology Stich Now infests OUR world

  19. I strongly believe all these chuches are under the government who told anybody to change gods Sabbath to Sunday???? Political is the beast the government all these churches Catholic Lutheran Baptist and all

    • Yes the political influence May TRY TO distribute EVILS over Mans People. Beware Obama Style Leaders jihad AND Islam. Obama was Not christian

    • The Catholic Church moved sabbath to Sunday when they converted Christians to paganism. I believe Constantine was the primary culprit but he had a council that gathered to achieve the merging of all the pagan rituals and beliefs with Christianity, including Easter, Christmas, and the use of the cross.

  20. Pastor please respond!
    I purchased crypto currencies knowing that they could be in some way demonic. Have I accepted the Mark of the Beast?

  21. 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 all it will endorse and that will include a religious system that will deny the deity of Jesus Christ as the only Lord and Saviour and His sinlesslife,death and resurrection. It will endorse things that God hath forbade in other words ungodliness . And all those that buy into the LIE will perish, and those that loved not ther lives unto death, God will raise them up unto eternal life. The book of Revelation says that we should pray that we might be counted worthy to escape these things that are to come upon the earth. The birth pangs have begun and instead of useless wrangling we need to focus on preaching The Gospel of Salvation to anyone that will hear,if they dont want to hear go on and take it to those who will. Pray that God will every day put people around you that you can sow good seed and that God will open their eyes,ears and hearts to it, .Is not God who saves,We rely too much on the church, and pastors to do the job of evangelizing the world. Our duty and privilige is to preach The Gospel. Hearts are not changed by political agendas they are changed by the Holy Spirit when He comes to reside in the bosom of every heart that will humble themselves by believing with repentence. And only then will a nation see revival. My concern is while we are looking and discussing these prophetic things we could be wasting the precious little time there is left to reach those that are lost for the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    May God keep you and may you holf fast to the Gospel that was once delivered to The Saints !!!

    • Yes Very Good research
      AND thats all Here Today ( the mark is Not Here yet)Look at the Entertainment Industry as example
      AND how Pervasive IT is…appearing even in your cellphone AND Devices These Evil movies
      The mark is Jewish And Roman ( usa Military )
      IT is Not. Christian

  22. 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.

  23. 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.
    Fifth generation technologies offers tremendous data capabilities and unrestricted call volumes and infinite data broadcast together within the latest mobile operating system. Fifth generation will make an important difference and add more services and benefits to the world over 4G. Fifth generation will be a far more intelligent technology that interconnects the entire world without limits. This will create a world of universal, uninterrupted access to information, entertainment and communication yet will open new dimension to our lives and change our life style significantly.
    The best way to avoid adding advancements to the mark of the beast is to re-apply your life in a place where you will not be required to rely on technologies such as computers, cell phones or any other connected device and be isolated from people that use the 5G technology. Simply put, “Disconnect Yourself”

  24. 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 of the devil. Computer is everywhere, your phones ,your camera, your car. Everyone has been marked.

  25. 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.

    • Jason – and the pope declares himself God on earth. People call him father, despite their bibles clearly telling them to call no man father.

  26. 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 translations of Revelation say that the beast’s number is 669, not 666. So no one can even be sure what the beast’s number is supposed to be. Scholars believe that Revelation was written as an anti-Roman device, a way to criticize the Roman empire for their decadent, hedonistic lifestyles. Scholars believe that the beast is none other than Nero Caesar. After his death rumors spread that he was not truly dead and that he would rise again and assume power. I’ve read Revelation numerous times as a child. It scared the crap out of me and it caused me to actually pray for the destruction of the world just so Jesus could come back. For some reason Fundamentalist Christians have a very unhealthy obsession for this one book, propping it up even higher than the Gospels. This is the reason why there is little talk of this among Catholics because they are taught that the emphasis should be based on the Gospels and of saving souls, not scaring people.

    • 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 book that is on no other book of the Bible. It is what Christians are to understand and teach because it will keep them from being deceived, something Christ warned us about.

      Christ is not a monster. That he has white hair is the purity of being glorified, and his eyes gleam with the Shekinah glory of God. It is blasphemous to call Him a monster. As for the mark of the beast, that is the number Satan or the beast chooses, and being occultic himself, it is not incongruous for him to choose it. God is merely relating through John, to us, what that number is, so that we will identify it. It is the false trinity so 666 is the number.

      The bible is only spiritually discerned, which means that if you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, having accepted Him as your Lord and Savior in your heart, you will never understand Scripture. Way too many scholars are merely approaching the Bible from a literary standpoint, and one of unbelief, not from a place of spiritual discernment, so anything they say is not trustworthy.

      Actually it is prophecy, as the antichrist has not yet come, and Jesus said that when He returns this abomination will occur just before He does. It is a sign of His imminent return. He referenced the passage in Daniel, which in 9:27 puts this abomination AFTER the destruction of the temple, not during it. It is after the clock begins ticking on the last seven years God has granted Israel to be redeemed.

      And it should scare you to death, for what is prophesied in that book is yet to happen, and I believe it will be happening in your lifetime as prophecy from it is being fulfilled daily now. I believe we are in the last phase or days before we enter into that 70th week of Daniel. I hope you are spiritually prepared for what is coming, because it will be awful. Only our relationship with Christ will help us endure.

  27. 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), is in the heart, or in the mind of the pledger…The mark of the beast is going to be like, when the king of Babylon played the national anthem at the sound of music, the Babylonians would fall down and worship the gold image, and those who refused to worship the gold image were cast into a fiery furnace by the decree of the king…When the Babylonians worship the gold image, there was no physical mark in the right hand, or on the forehead, because the mark of the gold image was spiritual in the heart, or in the mind of the worshipper…Today, when the US plays the national anthem at the sound of music, the US citizens stand on their feet to sing the song “old glory” to the star spangled of heaven…Those who don’t believe what God said in Ex.20:1-5, and De.4:15-19, are going to worship the beast…Those who are being deceive by the signs of the false prophet are going to worship the beast with the heart, or with the mind…Technology is here, and those who worship the beast are going to get a license to buy and sell, that is, to do business in the world, but the mark of the beast in the right hand means the heart, and the mark of the beast on the forehead means the name of the beast is in the mind…The ministers of God cannot see the idols high and lifted up on a flag pole, because they do not believe what God said in Ex.20, De.4, therefore God is sending them a strong delusion of believe a lie…When people pledge allegiance to a man, or the flag, or a nation, they are going to be serving idols…The devil uses Romans 13, and the so-called “constitution” of liberty and justice for all” to deceive those who don’t believe what God said in Ex.20:1-5, and De.4:15-19…The US is serving the star spangled of heaven and the bald eagle of the earth…Canada is serving the leaf of the maple tree of the earth…Mexico is serving the eagle and serpent of the earth…Japan is serving the sun of heaven…Israel is serving the star remphan of heaven to this day Acts 7…The nations idols are high and lifted up on a flag pole, and those who are serving them are called “idol worshippers”…God calls this type of flag service “idolatry”, because they are idols…The devil deceived the founding fathers, and they made images of the stars, of the moon, of the sun, of birds, and four footed beasts, in the likeness of heaven above and in the likeness of the earth below…To avoid the mark of the beast, false gods, idols, and doctrines of devils, we must believe what God said in Ex.20, and De.4.

  28. 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 it says the mark is permanent.

    • You are right that the internet and digital means will be used to boycott those who refuse the mark, but the internet is not itself the mark. To discover the mark and the identity of the two beasts of Rev13, go to the lecture “Who is the Antichrist” by Mark Woodman. Start with this one. We all need to know the truth or we will accept tradition and the commandments of men rather than obeying God.

  29. implement this rfid chip in india also ,usa government plz talk about this rfid chip ,everybody has to take this chip and insert their right hand or forehead

    • 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 just on the skin surface, and it will be able to hold so much more info than the chip, some of the abilities it has are reading our thoughts, (sound like sci-fi? and very scary) they will market it different as well, making it seem as though it will save our lives and when we refuse their ID system, we will look as though we are ridiculous for doing so. Another one called neurodust, has the ability to send us signals or “thoughts” that im sure we will not be able to control. And a third one, is in pill form, taken every day, breaks down in our digestive tract and releasing transmitters of some sort, in my opinion, it will end up being the invisible tattoo, that will be scanned under a blacklight. i know one thing for sure, after accepting The Mark, it will cause the body terrible side affects, it will cause headaches and skin rashes and who knows what else, I will get in line for be-heading and know that God will be with me the whole time, and i also believe he will ease our mind of fear at that moment

    • Hello everyone,
      Listen, the mark of the beast will come as the antichrist declares that he is God. This (the mark) will be given only to those who will be willing to openly worship him as their god. (You will have to confess him as your god.)
      And it will be highly visible for all to see on either your forehead or your hand.
      We as Christians will know and understand at that time, that it is time to get out of dodge, and hide out until we see Jesus coming out of the eastern sky in all of His glory. That’s when the dead in Christ will rise first, and then those who are alive and remain, and we are changed in the twinkling of an eye, (we will not just disappear), and go with Him to glory for awhile, until we come back with Him on horses at armageddon.
      The only people who can’t be hurt or killed by God’s wrath will be the 144,000 of the twelve tribes of Israel, who are sealed by God.
      Also Christ’s return will end the great tribulation, and will begin the wrath of God being poured out. He that endures unto the very end shall be saved. Perfect love cast out all fear. Our God’s Love IS PERFECT LOVE, HIS NAME IS JESUS..

    • Some of my dreams come true some don’t. I know this happen. Either way I know that this was a message for me. As I walked in my dreams I saw people using witchcraft to try to hide from God or rather the chaos of the end of the world or people still continuing to do the things they do regularly in there daily life. Then the clouds formed into angels and they looked to be holding musical instruments. I was terrified as my family and I we’re told to go to this building. I didn’t know what this building was or what was going to happen to us. I looked at my mother with fear and she replied, “ It doesn’t matter where they take us just know that you serve God and come on.” For me, this dream just meant no matter what others are doing make sure I’m doing the right thing to best of my abilities and when he calls don’t afraid to follow God no matter what happens the pain won’t last long.

  30. Hi my friend, I have also been thinking about this and have come to this conclusion. As a believer we should not be afraid of death, its a natural part of life…we all die. I think what your worried about is dying a horrid, painful death…what I say is that by trusting and flowing the lord, need not worrys, even if its an execution to refuse the mark, its a split second and then its over, they wont prolong this, Be strong, we all have love for the lord so we will all have love for each other, shpport each other through this..when its hour time, dont waver or give in, be strong and the lord will be with us and give us the strength. I wont want to be alive with the mark so I will close my eyes, offer them my head whiles speaking the lords prayer, to keep me safe. Jesus died a horrible death for us with much suffering, we owe him that to strong and he will be with us. do not worry, do not take the mark and be glad to rwfuse it to show everyone that we trust the lord, it will help others make the right choice to. God bless.

  31. It sounds like you could use a boost in faith. Perhaps work to strengthen your faith as a way to prepare for what is to come.

      • Seaneilia,

        Either you will be protected like the Philadelphians or be killed like the Smyrnians. But most excitingly, both will be raptured and resurrected respectively at the coming of Jesus Christ from the clouds, and all of us will be gathered to meet Him there and we will be taken to His place for the Great Wedding Banquet, and He will wipe away the tears in our eyes, and we will be with Him forever.

        I think chopping the head is painless if it is a matter of split second. The pain that the body will transmit to the brain will be disconnected from the chopping off. I hope this idea will comfort us, only the thought of our head being chopped off is dreadful, but the best comfort is to hope and be encouraged with what I said above.

        Beheading is satan’s mockery of Jesus Christ, separating the Head from the Body. Stand up for Jesus!

        • Matthew 10:28

          Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

      • If you don’t take the mark, you are at great risk of being killed. This does not mean that everyone who doesn’t have the mark will die because some people without the mark will survive.

  32. Dear Guest,

    Please remember that everyone dies at some point. There is no escaping it. Nobody really wants to die, we all cherish life. The only exception will be those few who are worthy to escape those things which lie ahead whom God will protect until the rapture. The choice is, will you die for Christ and live eternally with God, or will you try to hang on to life for only a few days more and end up in God’s wrath and eternally in hell, for nobody who takes the mark will go to heaven. The only possibility of being in that small group that are worthy, is to turn your life completely over to God and live a holy life for Him, obeying His commandments as He said we should if we love Him, turning from the apostasy in the church, and praying, as He told us to, that we may be worthy to escape. All the preparations in the world for hiding out will be of no use if you don’t meet God’s criteria of being worthy.

    All of this is true, because the Bible says it is, and the Bible is truth. You are not throwing your life away to take a stand for Christ. You are ultimately saving it, for our mortal life is forfeit no matter what. It is our eternal life that matters. Your fear may stem from your not having as close a relationship with God as you will need for the days ahead. God gives us the courage to meet the crisis when it is time for it, not well in advance. What He desires is for our relationship with Him being where it should be, so that He can give us the courage when it is needed. Instead of living in fear, work on your relationship with God. Perfect love casts out fear.

    Not to frighten you more, but we are not even guaranteed tomorrow. Death can come at any time unexpectedly, so you should have a right relationship with God at all times and not worry about what is coming.

  33. Thank you for your response. I just have serious doubt sometimes, if this happened I wouldn’t want to throw my life away for nothing. A millennium of peace sounds great but I don’t know if I can throw my life away for that promise. I don’t have many places to run and hide either. I hope none of this is true and this never happens. One of my biggest fears!

  34. We know it here now we must prepare just as joesph did. We should become self sustainable and grow all the food we will need. We will need community in order to thrive. At Biospharms we are developing mini farm communities off the grid and ready for what’s coming. Those who haven’t prepared yet can join us in the event the mark comes before you are able to prepare.

  36. We must not forget that confirming the covenant just means ratify.
    I.e the proposal is put forward – time given to think to it over and then it is confirmed and signed by all parties.

  37. You are free to believe that. I personally believe that we will face the Antichrist and face persecution.  However, I try to write my articles for an audience who have differing viewpoints concerning the Rapture in hopes that people of differing viewpoints can glean something. 

  38. Interesting, but I believe that true believers willl be gone by this time. 
    The anti-christ cannot come until the great restrainer / holy spirit is taken away (and as Christians we are always promised that).  Hence, we’ll be raptured or “snatched away” prior to the revealing of the anti-christ, which would make us also gone before the mark is implamented.
    So, I would think the answer to his question is, if you truely believe, you won’t have to worry abou the mark.
    As to those that become believers during the tribulation, then yet, I think they’ll have to chose.  And once anyone choses the marked, they are forever damned with no chance of redemption.

    • There would be no need for a mark of the beast to be implemented though if all the true believers were snatched away because there would only be followers of antichrist left so I personally don’t believe we would be snatched away before the mark, it would be pointless.

      • You are wrong because unbelievers would start opening up their eyes and believing. The antichrist will start killing people and people will realize that it was a mistake. Chris’s comment is 100% true and by the bible. If you take the mark you are eternally dammed. God always gives his people a way out. He delivered noah and his family out of the flood, he delievered lot and his family out of sodom and gamorah, and he will deliever christians out before the great tribulation.

        • No, she is not wrong. God will deliver people before His wrath, yes, but He never promised us deliverance from persecution and death by martyrdom. NEVER. In the Old Testament many passages tell us that the Day of the Lord, God’s WRATH, will be heralded (that means that there will be some signs which announce the soon coming of God’s wrath) by the sun going dark, the moon turning to blood/going dark, the stars falling, the heavens being rolled up as a scroll and shaking, earthquakes, men trembling with fear and mourning for all these things occurring, and a bunch more things to boot.

          If you read what Christ said in the Olivet Discourse, you will see that He says that AFTER the great tribulation is cut short (of the length of 1260 days) that the sun will go dark, the moon will be darkened, the stars fall, the heavens be shaken, people will mourn, and then after all those things occur (and in Revelation we will see there is still a lot more which occurs before Christ returns) the Son will appear in the clouds with a trumpet blast, and angels, and gather the elect up to meet with Him in the air. Now paint me yellow and call me a taxi, but that sounds suspiciously like the Day of the Lord (God’s wrath) doesn’t occur until AFTER the great tribulation is cut short, because the signs mentioned are the ones spoken of in the O.T. We are ONLY promised not to have to endure God’s wrath, not to escape persecution or martyrdom, and clearly God’s wrath does not begin, according to Jesus, who should know when it will begin, until AFTER the signs which HERALD it occur. To read it any other way is to add to or twist God’s Word.

    • Christ will not come for His church until the last trumpet. Read Revelation, Chapters 13 & 14 and Matthew 13:39. The antichrist will be present then. The Bible clearly shows we will be here for a good part of the Tribulation. Do not be fooled into thinking we’ll be “raptured” away and won’t have to make a decision on whether or not to take the “mark”. When we see that we will not be able to conduct any financial transactions, receive pay, government benefits, etc., etc., then we will know that is the “mark” we are commanded to reject.
      Be aware. Read your Bible and study it.

      • What you said really makes sense, there wouldn’t be any point for the mark if all true Christian will be raptured. … But my confusion is…..Is it for no reason that the bible says fortunate are those who take part to the first rapture, that the great tribulation or the second death won’t have power upon them? Or can you explain that to me please?

        • Where did you get that version of that Scripture? That’s a grossly inaccurate paraphrase and not what the Bible says. It says, “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” There is no mention of the great tribulation or the rapture. It speaks of the first resurrection. There are two resurrections, one to life (the first is to spiritual life) and one to death (the second is to spiritual death). All the saved take part in the first, just before the millennium, all the unsaved take part in the second at the end of the millennium. The rapture is merely a snatching of the still living saved ones at the first resurrection to join those who have just been resurrected. Nowhere in that verse is the tribulation mentioned as having been escaped or having no power over them. In fact both in Daniel and Revelation God says He is turning over the saints (that’s us) to the beast for him to kill during that time.

        • It sounds like you might be thinking of Revelation 20:4-6 which states:

          “(4) And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (5) But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. (6) Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”

          The passage does not indicate that Christians escape the great tribulation. In fact, the passage could be used to support the notion that the Christians will endure the great tribulation. The martyrs referenced in verse 4 were killed during the great tribulation for their beliefs (compare Rev 20:4 with Rev 6:9-11)

          The second death is not the great tribulation. The second death is linked to eternal punishment (see Rev 20:11-15).

      • True christians will be raptured. You need to study your bible. You have alot to learn about the bible and the nature of god.

  39. The word “confirm” does seem to imply that something preexisting is strengthened. On the other hand, when I look at Isaiah 28:15 it implies that a covenant was made.  Just speculating, but perhaps there may be a basis/outline of an tentative/nonbinding agreement that becomes stronger/binding by the Antichrist.

    • Jesus said in Matthew 5:17, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”

      Sounds like he is confirming the old covenant with many.

  40. It says that he will confirm a covenant. That seems to indicate something that has already been in effect, but possibly has lapsed or needs to be reinforced or strengthened.  Do you have any thoughts on that?

  41. Very good write up!!  I agree that we need to watch global unrest prior to the covenant with the many.  There would have to be a war or unrest or some sort of conflict for there to be a need for a covenant.  Also, I do have a question for you, do you think that the mark of the beast will be forced on people, or is it a choice the people will have to make?  I think that it is going to be a choice being that it will be your choice whether to put the devils mark on you, or choose to worship Jesus by not receiving the mark.  Just curious what your take on that is. 

        • Hey Wayne,
          Could be why tattoos have become so popular these days. But I think it will probably be, having to be branded, because of the ability to have it done so quickly. There is alot of this starting to get popular also.
          JESUS IS LORD

    • The bible says you have a choice with taking the mark or not. If you take the mark then you are eternally dammed to hell forever. God is specific

      • I been reading all your comments on the mark of the beast my thoughts our live for God pray through our Lord Jesus Christ let Holy Spirit guides us through holy scriptures till Christ comes back to gather his Saints
