Will the Mark of the Beast Be Forced Upon People?

Mark of the Beast

I was asked a while back whether the Mark of the Beast will be forced upon people. It is a good question because it is something that I wondered about too in the past. This is a question I want to address because many people probably have the asked the same kind of question. Therefore, in this article, I will provide my thoughts on whether the Mark of the Beast will be forced upon people.

I believe the main purpose of the Mark of the Beast can be found by examining Revelation 13:16-17. 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 conduct transactions, a person could get by with having 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)

The fact that a person can also buy or sell by using the name of the beast or the number of the beast indicates that people do not obtain 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 that the Mark of the Beast will serve as an important tool to distinguish between followers of the Antichrist and those who do not follow the Antichrist, I do not believe people will be given the Mark of the Beast against their will:

  • The Mark of the Beast would lose a lot of its symbolic significance if those working to get people to enter the Mark of the Beast system physically forced people against their will to take the mark.
  • In addition, it would become much more difficult for the authorities to distinguish between truly loyal followers of the Antichrist and opponents of the Antichrist if people were forced to get the Mark of the Beast against their will since there would not be a physical or visible way to distinguish between followers and opponents.
  • A third consideration is that forcing opponents of the Antichrist to accept the Mark of the Beast may lead to fewer necessities of life for the true supporters of the Antichrist as opponents would be eligible to buy and sell items with their mark. This would pose a problem for the authorities because there would be fewer necessities for those who actually support the Antichrist at a time when necessities like food will probably will be in short supply.

With that said, I believe the authorities will go to extremes to compel people to “voluntarily” become part of the Mark of the Beast system. For instance, denying people who aren’t part of the Mark of the Beast system the ability to buy and sell is one major thing that the authorities will do to try to persuade people to pledge their allegiance to the Antichrist and enter the Mark of the Beast system. Another way the authorities will try to compel people to voluntarily enter the Mark of the Beast system is to brutally oppress those who have not yet become part of the system.

Therefore, I believe people will be given a choice about whether they want to opt into the Mark of the Beast system or not. The choices that probably will be offered by the authorities at that time are basically: become part of the system or die. It’s not an appealing set of choices, but there is a choice nonetheless. If anyone alive at that time manages to get a hold of this article, I urge you to not accept the Mark of the Beast. Don’t accept it no matter what hardships await you by rejecting it!

It seems to me that you may have accepted that “mark”. This is because of your college degrees in business and political science. To me, the “mark” is reading the “Toyota Way” or “Lean Manufacturing 101” etc. and then blaming the Big 3 bankruptcy on the Big 3 auto makers themselves. That is the “mark” and accepting/receiving it all at once – especially if a person lives in the “earth beast” USA. The physical sin in that becomes buying those Japanese autos accepting them as “the standard”. Many of their autos are alike separated by their corporate names. Remember there… Read more »

Considering the blatant Satanic influence in the halftime shows at the bowl games, I’d think that most Christians would place sports into the system that we are called to come out of.

If the prophecy is accurate with the amount of people that are going to be dead and stuff as long as you stay hidden in the shadows pray to Great Jehovah to keep us under the radar we may find abundance of things if we move and do what he tells us no hesitation. if this many people are going to be dying there will be tons of stuff to be available.

to Anonymous and Elijah,

Why do we need to survive in the great tribulation? I hope our reason is to be useful still in spreading the Gospel of Salvation to the Lost..

To be Dead in Christ is far better.To be Alive in Christ is equally better.

If we live, we live to the Lord. If we die, we die to the Lord. So wether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.

What could be more comforting than that?

The mark of the beast will alter your DNA. You won’t be fully human anymore after you take it. That’s why you lose your salvation and burn in hell for eternity. Look up LA Marzulli mark of the beast.

there could be a way for you to find out, go to an airport, ask them to scan your hand, tell them you think you got it inserted, but are not sure, or, buy an AM radio, there are some online articles on how to use an AM radio to detect radio frequency in an object (your hand) you wave it in front of it, or something like that, im sure you can do a little research of your own to be sure, but, i think it is big enough that you would feel something under the skin.

The mark of the beast in the right hand or forehead is spiritual…The mark of the beast in the right hand means the heart…The mark of the beast on the forehead means the mind…The false prophet is doing signs and wonders and even makes fire come down from heaven in the sight of men and by those signs he causes them to receive the mark of the beast in the right hand(heart) or on the forehead(mind)…By those signs the false prophet causes them to worship the beast as God almighty…The beast is a man and one day he will sit… Read more »

you deserve the right to believe what you choose, but, what if you are wrong? will you be taking the RFID chip since you are so against it being The Mark? or will you stay on the safe side and refuse it? just wondering?

The mark of the beast need not be introduced by enforcement since, from the of Rev. 13, the people are represented as giving willing and spontaneous homage to the beast. They were already willing to receive the mark of their allegiance to the Antichrist. The enforcement will be in the form of persecution of those who chose to remain loyal to Christ.

The Two Feet of Nebuchadnezzar’s Statue represents the Revived Roman Empire and the Islamic Caliphate. The Two Legs is the Western Empire of Rome and the other is the Eastern Byzantine Empire where Islam originated. So it is a mixture of Iron and Clay. Iron is Rome and Clay is Islam (Shi’ite and Sunni – unstable) They had been warring ever since as Daniel foretold about them as the Kings of the North and Kings of the South. The Islamic antichrist is the dummy to be defeated by the real one, which is the Revived Roman Empire antichrist, a jew,… Read more »

The “sea beast” is Japan and the “earth beast” the USA. “Crowns” and “horns” are the automobile industry. Out of those choices, the 6s mark is a Toyota. Babylon is then most likely Bay area California. An earthquake there would drop the whole works into the Pacific Ocean causing an environmental disaster and a reaction by China and Russia. Examine resources maps of the USA and you will see iron in the north and clay in the south.

Break it down to the basics friends. We know enough details to know its a one world monetary system that is cashless and uses identifiers that we must accept on our right hand or forehead.
