Additional Comments on the "Mark of the Beast"

Background of the Mark

Regardless of the outlandish science fiction misunderstandings of the “Beast from the Sea” (the first mentioned beast in the Revelation) it must be realized that this beast is the “little horn” of Daniel 7 which became the successor or “little horn” extension to the defunct Roman Empire and quickly morphed into the Holy Roman Empire. The earlier military Roman Empire had been divided into ten areas or divisions of which the borrowed-army of the Vatican gang overcame three of them and thus, the Vatican declared themselves an empire or the Holy Roman Empire. 

Daniel 7:7-8 KJV …. behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: (the Roman Empire) ….. and it had ten horns (divisions or provinces). (8) ….. there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots (three of the ten divisions conquered by the Vatican army): and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things (a man is the head of the “little horn” or Holy Roman Empire).

It can also be understood that the Holy Roman Empire was the initial phase of the new Mystery, Babylon with the fiat money banking system of the earth (or 2nd) beast becoming the second phase of Mystery, Babylon.

Later in history, Napoleon defeated the Holy Roman empire, captured the existing Pope and carried him to France where he was imprisoned and supposedly died. At a later date, Napoleon thought he needed a Pope to crown him the King of his new conquered empire so he allowed the Vatican to create a new Pope for that purpose. Thus the Pope died (who had been wounded by the sword) but was brought back to life in a manner (but still lived). Revelation 13:14 …..who had been wounded by the sword, but still lived.

After the death of Napoleon, the powers of Europe placed the Vatican/Pope under a bank directed trusteeship. This banking system later came to be owned and operated by the Rothschild family. Thus the 2nd beast or the beast from the earth is the banking system or possibly the Rothschild family. 

The Beast System Simplified

According to the historical Revelation timeline, the world is now seeing the destruction of Mystery, Babylon of which the Rothschild International banking system which includes the Federal Reserve is a big part, but not the only part.

The beast system contains the four beasts of Daniel 2:31-45 and reiterated in Daniel 7:3-8 with the introduction of the 5th beast called the “little horn”. Some claim the Roman Empire was in two parts as the two legs of the statue in Daniel 2 and should be considered as two different beasts. The little horn or the beast from the sea in Revelation 13 is soon controlled by the earth beast, later called the false prophet in Revelation 17. This earth beast could be the 6th or 7th beast depending on one’s counting method. The sea beast could be the beginning of Mystery, Babylon, but if not, the earth beast is definitely part of the last beast (again depending on one’s counting method) which is Mystery, Babylon.

Now On With the MARK

A few things that can safely be said about the Mark is: it is not a brand or a tattoo. It has something to do with money and global banking. It is obviously in use or being employed today in some manner and has been in use for some time.


The mark and the image are metaphoric names for money. The Greek word translated “mark” has several dictionary meanings including: sign, etching, and stamp, but it can also indicate a sign of servitude as given to a slave. A mark is also a unit of German currency but doesn’t appear to have any relationship to this scripture. Thus the “mark of the beast” would be an idolatrous slave to money and systems of obtaining money.


An image is a representation or a likeness. All money contains an image of someone. There even exits Vatican currency with the image of a pope, but again, this doesn’t appear to have any relationship to this scripture.

Mark 12:16 NET So they brought one, and He said to them, “Whose image is this, and whose inscription?” They replied, “Caesar’s.”

***Right Hand or Forehead

Revelation 13:16 states: … obtain (or receive) a mark on their right hand or on their forehead. It has already been determined this is not a brand or a tattoo, and it is definitely not a DNA transfer as implied by Tom Horn of Sky Watch TV. Sorry literalists, but this verse is a symbolic or figurative representation of phylacteries worn by Jews of Jesus’ day and in modern times by Hassidic Jews.

These phylacteries contain parchments with handwritten prayers from certain books of the Old Testament. They are worn on the hand and on the forehead between the eyes. It should be noted that Deut. 6:6 claims that the commandments of God “shall be in thine heart”, and only figuratively worn on the hand and forehead although the Hassidic Jews follow this verse literally.

Deuteronomy 6:6-8 KJV And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: (7) And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. (8) And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

The point being made is that people who worship money will symbolically bind them to their wrist and forehead in the figurative manner that a Jew binds a phylactery. It will become a part of their worship. Also note the use of the word “mark” which is metaphorically money.

Revelation 14:9 presents a two points that should be considered because the penalty is to drink the wine of God’s anger: 1) anyone who worships the beast and his image.

Revelation 14:9-10 NET A third angel followed the first two, declaring in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and takes the mark on his forehead or his hand, (10) that person will also drink of the wine of God’s anger that has been mixed undiluted in the cup of his wrath, and he will be tortured with fire and sulfur in front of the holy angels and in front of the Lamb.

The beast began as the Vatican/Papacy/Roman Catholic Church or the Holy Roman Empire as well as the first phase of Mystery, Babylon. I’m not certain if this has anything to do with worshipping the Pope, or the Catholic Church. And I’m also not certain if worshipping the image has anything to do with the Catholic infatuation with the Virgin Mary shrines or some Church anointed saint. It most likely involves the idolatrous worship of the Mystery, Babylon system and the collection of wealth i.e. money rather than the worship of God the creator.

Revelation 14:11 NET And the smoke from their torture will go up forever and ever, and those who worship the beast and his image will have no rest day or night, along with anyone who receives the mark of his name.”

Revelation 16:2 NET So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth. Then ugly and painful sores appeared on the people who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image.

Revelation 19:20 NET Now the beast was seized, and along with him the false prophet who had performed the signs on his behalf — signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. Both of them were thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulfur.
