(Before It's News)

The Mark of the Beast

Instead of fearing and giving glory to God who created all things, the deceived will fear the Beast as a result of his signs and lying wonders (Rev 14:7, 2 Thes 2:9)

2 Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Satan can easily corrupt the minds of those who are not in Christ. The mark of the beast is upon those whom the god of this world has blinded from the gospel of Christ (2 Cor 11:3, 2 Cor 4:4 ).

Rev 20:4 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 worshiped 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.

The fact that there are martyr’s for Christ during the great tribulation proves that the rapture or gathering of the saints does not occur until after the great tribulation.

Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and also his image, and also whosoever receives the mark of his name.

To take the mark of the beast is to commit idolatry, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God (Rev 14:10).

Rev 16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

Those that have the seal of God, will be protected from the vials of the wrath of God that are poured out upon those who receive the mark of the beast.

Rev 15:1-2 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

The mark of the beast refers to whosoever receives the mark of his name (Rev 14:11). The very name of the beast will be one of blasphemy. This beast and his followers will blaspheme against the one true God (Rev 13:6, 16:9, 11, 21).

Rev 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

Some of what proceeds from the hearts of those who have the mark of the beast is adultery, murder, blasphemy and pride (Mark 7:21-22).

The Mark of the Beast or the Seal of God

The second beast, also known as the false prophet, will cause all that are not sealed with the holy spirit to take the mark of the beast. The deceived that follow after the doctrines of men have already been marked with the spirit of unbelief. To honor God with words that do not come from a transformed heart, is vain or useless (Mat 15:8-9).

Rev 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.

To be sealed with the Holy Spirit, is not something that is unique to the 144,000 that are mentioned in the book of Revelations.

All of the Elect who are in Christ are sealed or set apart unto Him. These will not accept the mark of the beast, as they know who the real Messiah is.

It is taught that the 144,000 who are sealed are end time witnesses during the Great Tribulation after all of the Christians are raptured away to heaven. This is yet another deceptive doctrine propagated by the false teachers in the Christian church.

John 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. 

The earnest (which is a down payment) of our inheritance with Christ, is that we are sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise. The fulfillment of this contract is our redemption which is realized when Christ returns with our Salvation (Eph 1:13-14, Eph 4:30, Heb 9:28, 1 Peter 1:5).

 2 Cor 1:21-22 Now he which establishes us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

And then shall the Son of man appear, and when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption is near (Luke 21:27-28).

Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed, and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

There is nothing in scripture to suggest that the 144,000 who are sealed witness to anyone.

Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

In this verse the 144,000 are not mentioned, but we know that there are believers in Christ that are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, and thus protected from the fifth Trumpet Judgment (Rev 9:1-11).

The Beast does not have power over all peoples. The all that he does have control over represents all of a certain type. All whose names are not written in the Lamb’s book of life shall take the mark of the beast (Rev 13:8).

The Beast will set up his headquarters in the holy mountain, which is in Jerusalem. During the time of the Great Tribulation, Jerusalem is referred to spiritually, as Sodom and Egypt (Dan 11:45, Rev 11:8).

The Mark of the Beast in the minds of the fearful

We can allow the spirit of God to take up residence with in us, and come out of darkness (John 12:46).

We can also be deceived into thinking that the spirit within us is light, when in actuality it is darkness (John 1:5; Luke 11:35).

Rev 22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

Those that don’t accept the mark of the beast achieve victory over him, as well as his image, and also over his mark of the number of his name (Rev 15:2). These shall have the name of the Lord God (upon their foreheads) in their minds.

Heb 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

Jesus puts his righteous Laws into the minds of His Elect. The enemy defiles the minds of the unbelievers with jewish fables, and the commandments of men, that turn many from the truth (Titus 1:14-16).

Those who are not firmly grounded in the Word may endure for a season, but when persecution comes for the Word’s sake, immediately they will fall away (1 Peter 4:14, Mark 4:17, Mat 5:11). The mark of the beast represents the power that Satan has on the fearful (Luke 21:26). The sin of fear will separate many from Christ for eternity.

Rev 21:7-8 He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake

Those that fall away from the truth because of fear, reject Christ by their own actions. The mark of the beast is established when Satan is able to suffocate the Word of God, so that it becomes useless. When our minds are preoccupied with the love of this evil world, and the pleasures thereof, the mark of the beast is firmly established in us (Luke 8:14).

2 Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

The mark of the beast is upon all who will not partake in afflictions for the sake of the Gospel. These are ashamed of the testimony of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Word clearly teaches that we must through much tribulation, enter into the kingdom of God, but how many are willing or able to do so (2 Tim 1:8, Acts 14:22)

Unless we put on the whole Armour of God, we cannot stand against the fiery darts of the Devil (Eph 6:11-18).

1 Cor 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

This word forehead (G3359 metōpon) is used eight times, and it is only found in the Book of Revelation.

The mark of the beast is the spirit of this world

Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

There are only two choices available, so there is no middle ground.

  • We can accept the Spirit of truth, and the Seal of Christ that leads to everlasting life (John 6:27, 14:17).

Rom 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

  • The mark of the beast may also be chosen, if we follow after the spirit of this world that leads to eternal destruction (1 Cor 2:12-14).

1 John 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
