Who is The Beast? More importantly, who will take his mark when Satan forces the hand of those who are left behind after the Rapture?
The Beast will reign the earth as the leader of the single world government through the seven year Tribulation. Driven by and catering to evil, and all that is not of God, the Beast’s goal is simple: To destroy as many souls as possible, to kill those who do not take the mark and side with Satan.
“16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:16-17)
John tells us the mark will be required to buy food and goods required to survive the end times, and this mark will be found on people’s right arm or their foreheads.
Through time, the mark was speculated as being a brand, like cattle are branded with a burning iron, a tattoo or some other type of physical mark that will be visible for all to see, witness and judge.
But what if the mark is actually associated with a less obvious sign, like a micro chip injected beneath the skin which in turn can be used for identification, for commerce or even for GPS tracking? The truth of the matter is, no one knows what the mark will look like nor can anyone predict the date when the Beast will be unleashed.
Today’s technology makes it possible for the mark to be as simple as a serial number for a vaccine, a reference number for a micro chip inserted subcutaneously in the arm or under the scalp through a simple prick, rewarding the “takers” of the mark by allowing them to buy and sell goods, to thrive at a most challenging time in human history.
“18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.” (Revelation 13:18)
What is 666?
666 is the mark of the Beast. 666 is the sign by which Satan converts souls to follow him into Hades where destruction and agony reign forever and ever.
During the Tribulation, countless people will go though a famine like never before and be forced to take the mark of the Beast to survive. Many among those who do not take the mark will die and be hailed as martyrs, while others will side with Satan and his troops as the enemy readies itself for battle against the ARMY of God.
Has the day come for us to prepare for the End Times?
In His Word, God commands us to hold steadfast, to be on the lookout for the second coming of Christ, for the day when the Lord makes His triumphant return to Earth.
Then there’s the Rapture, that glorious day when believers are taken up to be with God almighty… But to be raptured, one must believe!
It is our mission as believers and servants of God to go out and share the truth, to make disciples and lead the lost to Jesus so they can be forgiven of their sins, freed of the burden that comes along with guilt and receive the hope that stems from salvation.
