THE MARK OF THE BEAST
What It Really Is!
Mark of the Beast: This study, and a few of the following ones, are going to be longer than most people would like, but the time is short and we must present you with as much information as possible; as fast as possible so that you will be prepared when the antichrists make their move to take over our beloved country.
From watching and listening to some of the Judeo‑Christian preachers, ministers, priests and etc., talk about the "Mark of The Beast," we have come to the conclusion that they are lying deliberately to deceive the people who listen to or watch them.
So we are going to try to the very best of our ability to show you that there are two beasts in Revelation 13. We are going to try and cover that in depth and understand exactly what this mark consists of.
First let's ask our Father for a word of Wisdom.
"Heavenly Father, we thank you for this time that we can come together and study your Word, that precious living letter that you have given unto us; the very history of our race which many are trying to change so as to hide it from your Israel people; so that we will not know that you have given unto us this wonderful book whereby we can both know you and understand your plan from the beginning. Father we turn this time over to you. We ask that you anoint our minds. Give us wisdom to understand the deep things, those mysteries that have been kept hidden, even from the beginning of this earth age. Father, we give you the praise and the honor and glory and thanksgiving in the name of Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah, the Lamb of God. Amen."
Now understand this one thing, we were created in God's image as it declares even from the beginning in Genesis. We are natural, our Father is Supernatural. Supernatural means he is more natural than we are, Okay.
Understand that God does not deal in fairy tales, comic book stories, or multi‑headed monsters right out of the twilight zone, but rather He deals in things that, with a little study, those that would discipline themselves (which is where we get the word disciple), will understand what God has brought forth. Keep in mind that most of your pastors, ministers/teachers and so forth would tell you:
"Ah, don't worry about understanding the book of Revelation. I mean, you're going to fly out of here from chapter 4 on, and you don't re‑appear until Revelations 19."
God did not give us this book to glaze over, to simply shine on. The very word itself, revelation, means to reveal or unveil, to uncover.
Our Father means for us to know what the end time events are, what transpires, and what to watch for. We should learn those signs and be sealed with those seals spoken of in Matthew 24 and Mark 13.
It is our goal to bring forth with understanding from God's word, line upon line, what he means for us to know about these end times and this study relative to the Mark of the Beast!
Revelation chapter 13, begins with verse one.
"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy." 
Now this "I stood," that is John, this revelation is being given to John. I, John, stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns.
This is not some multi‑headed monster as they would like to teach you, but rather indicative of one worldism. Remember, the number seven represents spiritual completeness, meaning all encompassing, around the world. The seven heads are seven continents if you will. This beast also has ten horns, horns are always indicative of rulers.
So what you have here are seven continents ten horns, ten rulers, and upon his horns ten crowns. In other words, crowns being indicative of rulership, authority, and upon these heads the name of blasphemy.
We want to understand there are two beasts in Revelation 13, and by the way, remember the number 13 is the number of rebellion. Rebellion, understand!
1). So what do we have here?
We have seven continents.
2). What are we talking about?
We are talking about that first beast of Revelation 13 Which is a Political System!
Again, the seven heads are those continents around the world. The ten horns are ten rulers, ten people who come together in rulership, for they are given ten crowns, a crown a piece.
3). What is this sea that John sees the beast rise out of?
The seas are the people.
Seas or waters are indicative of people. We are not talking about H2O here, but people. How do we know this? Let's document it. Turn to Revelation chapter 17, where it says:
"And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me (John), saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication." 
In other words, what happens when you get drunk? You're thrown into a stupor. Make a note of Romans chapter 11, the word slumber:
"(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day." 
God Himself saying He brought a slumber upon them, but in the Greek if you will go back in your Strong's Concordance and your King James Bible and check out that word slumber, you will find it better translated as stupor.
Greek #2659: katanuxis. kat-an'-oox-is. from Greek 2660 (katanusso); a prickling (sensation, as of the limbs asleep), i.e., (by implication [perhaps by some confusion with Greek 3506 (neuo) or even with Greek 3571 (nux)]} STUPOR (LETHARGY) slumber.
It is that same intoxication that is brought upon the waters. Now let's find out what these waters are. Go a little further in Revelation 17:
"And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues." 
The waters are the peoples of this world. Now do you under-stand that we're not talking about H2O. Revelation 17:15: these waters or the sea are indicative of people. Alright, let's go back to Revelation 13.
"And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power and his seat, and great authority." 
We know who the bear is, that's good old Russia, Rosh. And the dragon gave him power, that's that same old dragon of Revelation 20:1-2. That old serpent, the dragon, Satan. Understand we are not talking about a flesh and blood man possessed by Satan, we are talking about the old dragon himself, he gave him his power. Who did he give his power to?
The seven heads and ten horns. Keep your subject and your object straight in the Greek and understand. Alright, and his seat, and great authority. In other words, God allows this. The feet of the bear means to travel, to carry this, put it forth. Also, while we are here, let's touch on as much as we can. Make a note of Daniel 7:1-7 in connection with this Revelation 13:2. You will see this same leopard, bear, lion, and dragon involved here.
"And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast." 
One of his heads, that is of this first beast, the one with seven heads, ten horns. I saw one of his heads as if it were wounded it death. That's one of the seven continents. Keep in mind that the number seven is spiritual completeness. That means it's around the world, one-worldism, or a one world government system. That is what is being talked about here. So understand that this one worldism, this one world government system, suffers what is called a deadly wound.
Let's go on with this verse: And his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. Not some of the world, all of the world.
In other words, this has sucked in or brought in all nations, honoring this one world system. Again, as we are going to find in other Scriptures, they are going to cry "peace, peace" when there is no peace. Even to the fact that they teach us from the pulpit. God never said that He was going to bring peace to the world in the end times, but rather a sword .
It's time to start understanding what God's Word has been declaring all along rather than the traditions of men. Remember, Christ said "just when they cry peace, peace, then sudden destruction cometh upon them." You see, there is no peace, it is false. Because the whole world yearns and craves for this peace, that is going to be the method by which the one worldism sells its philosophy to the world.
Christians to boot, for almost all Christians., except those who know and understand that have eyes to see and ears to hear who know that there will be no peace until Jesus Christ the Messiah, the King of kings is actually present on earth, there will be no peace.
There will be a false peace brought in by Satan and this one world government system.
"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?" 
And they (who?) the world as well as this one world system, worshipped the dragon. Who is this dragon? He is that serpent, the devil, Satan:
"And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years." 
This dragon is not a flesh and blood man, therefore antichrist is not a flesh and blood man. It is Satan, the son of perdition. Perdition, from the Greek word Apollumi, meaning to be utterly destroyed.
Greek #684: apoleia, ap-o'-li-a; from a presumed der. of 622 (apollumi); ruin or loss (phys., spiritual or eternal):-damnable (-nation), DESTRUCTION, die, perdition, X perish, pernicious ways, waste.
There is only one that has been sentenced to death, to be consumed or turned to ashes from within which is what the Hebrew says, speaking of Lucifer in Ezekiel chapter 28.
"Thou has defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee; thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more." 
A description of that time when God has Satan cast into the lake of fire and how he will be destroyed. He will be turned into ashes from within.
Only one has been sentenced so far and that is Satan. It is time to come out of Babylon, to come out of confusion and find out what the Spirit says according to God's living Word.
"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?"
They worship the dragon which gave power unto the beast. What beast? That Political System. What is this telling us? Who gives the actual power or the ability to go forth in the world as a reckoning power to the beast? Satan is the one who brings one worldism into being, all in the name of peace, not war.
And they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is like that seven headed, ten horned political system, that multi-headed system or organization. Who is able to make war with him?
If you remember, not very long ago Saddam Hussein found out, even though it was touted he had the fourth largest army in the world, he was not able to make war with the beast. Does that give you any idea who the beast is? Put on your thinking caps, let's reason together.
God is making the signs plain if you just have "eyes to see and ears to hear" and will stop listening to the traditions of men that will tell you to watch out for the European Economic Market. The European Economic Market couldn't wage war with anybody. Nor will they ever.
Oh, they may be a reckoning force in the world economy scene relative to Europe, but that is not the seven headed ten horned organization spoken of in Revelation 13.
There is only one that fits the description of that beast, that political system, and with just a little bit of thinking you can figure it out. And its not the United States.
"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." 
Months and nights always refer to Satan and his working, the negative part of God's plan. Days and years are always indicative of God and His working, the positive part of His plan. Alright, forty and two months, that is three and a half years.
This is speaking of specifically the back half of Daniel's 70th week. That time has been shortened to five months, the time of the locust. This is documented in Revelation chapter 9.
"And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 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. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented FIVE MONTHS; and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man." 
They were given power to torment five months, the time of the locust. The same locust spoken of by Joel the prophet. You can read the book of Joel, and it will fit right in with chapter 9 of the book of Revelation as well as in Revelation 17. So hear and understand what the Spirit is saying through this Living Word. Come out of that confusion, come out of Babylon.
"And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven." 
In other words, the true many membered body of Christ, all inclusive. Why? Because it declares in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 that the "abomination of desolation," properly translated from the Hebrew in Daniel 9:27, it says he comes in on the wings of the desolator.
Singular, masculine entity and not a situation or condition, but rather an individual and it is said that old dragon, Satan, antichrist from the Greek meaning instead of Christ, he stands in the temple declaring himself to be God. Naturally, blaspheming the true things of God and His tabernacle and them that dwell in heaven, the saints. Verse 7 of Revelation 13:
"And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindred, and tongues, and nations." 
Who are the saints? They are the set aside ones; those that God has set aside, that seed. Make a note of Psalm 22:30:
"A seed shall serve Him; it shall be accounted to the LORD for a generation." 
He has reserved a seed for that end generation, the generation since the planting of the two fig trees in Jerusalem. That happened May 15, 1948 when Israel became a nation. There were two fig trees planted.
If you aren't familiar with that we will try to present it some time in the future. Again, it is one of those seals you must be sealed with in your mind, if you are to stand in these end days. For you will either be sealed with the seals of God  or you will be sealed with the mark of the beast .
You see, it isn't this ludicrous, stupid notion of a tattoo on the back of the hand, or a stamp on your forehead read with ultraviolet light or something put under your skin. Satan is not that stupid.
The "mark" is something totally different as we will get to. This mark is in your forehead, your mind: use it! Hear and under-stand what the Spirit says and come out of the traditions of men for they will confuse you and lead you ever further into Babylon, into captivity, mystery Babylon, mother of harlots. Have you not read?
Well who is that? It is the deceived church, it is deceived Christianity, called Judeo-Christianity today, who has been more than happy to listen to the traditions of men and to be deceived than to come out of that and find out what GOD has to say.
Don't take for gospel the words of this man or any other man. Weigh all things according to the Word of God and not according to what men tell you, or you will not stand in these end-times. One more comment on Revelation 13:7: It was given unto him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. That means they should be delivered up. Make a not of Luke 21.
"And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolk, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death." 
When you are delivered up unto "death." Who is death? Satan, Hebrews 2:14; he is the only one that has been sentenced to die, sentenced to perish.
Greek #622: apollumi, ap-ol'-loo'mee; from Grk 575 and the base of Greek 3639; to destroy fully (reflex. to perish, or lose), lit. or fig.-destroy, die, lose, mar, perish.
When he stands in that temple declaring himself to be God, if you are one of those elect, then at that time you will be delivered up. Why? To bear a testimony or witness against them. That is when the Holy Spirit will speak through you. Satan is already standing in most of the pulpits of America, in the person of the Judeo-Christian preachers, ministers, priests, pastors and etc.
"But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost." 
Satan can not harm a hair on your head. In Revelation 9 God says only those who don't have the seal of God in their forehead will be harmed, "tormented."
"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." 
Also, see 1 Chronicles 16:
"Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm." 
Power was given over all kindred and tongues and nations. Again that's one-worldism having drawn in all peoples and nations into this common one-world government system. Put on your thinking cap, realize there is only one organization today that is capable of this.
Realize that it began about the same time the two figs were planted in Jerusalem. You also want to know that this is the system of deception that Satan brings upon the world through this one world political system and through the church.
For what purpose? To deceive people into believing that they are serving God, that they are serving Christ when in fact they are serving antichrist, the one that is first to come. They teach you falsely that you are going to "fly" away.
Nobody gets a free ride into the first resurrection. You earn it. Faith without works is dead. No one flies out of here or escapes. Make a note of Ezekiel chapter 13. God says I hate those who teach my children to fly to save their souls.
"Have ye (Judeo-Christian preachers, ministers, etc.) not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye (Judeo-Christian ministers, etc.) say, the LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken?... Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly...Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not by promising him life." 
Now let continue on with verse 8 of Revelation 13:
"And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." 
The old dragon is the one, who is the "him" they will worship, in the guise of a false Christ, which is being presented from most of the pulpits of America today; those whose names are not written in the book of life.
What is it that is translated as foundation? From the Greek it is not a foundation as something that is built upon, but rather a destruction or overthrow from the Greek word kataballo.
Greek #2598: kataballo, kat-ab-al'-lo; from Greek 2596 and Greek 9906; TO THROWDOWN:-CAST DOWN, lay.
Greek #2596: kata, kat-ah'; a prim. particle; (prep.) down (in place or time), in varied relations (according to the case [gen., dat., or acc.,] with which it is joined):-about, according as (to), after, against, (when they were) X alone, among, and, X apart, (even, like) as (concerning, pertaining to, touching), X aside, at before, beyond, by, to the charge of [charity] bly, concerning, + covered, [dai-] ly, from...to, godly, in (-asmuch, divers, every, -to, respect of) measure, X mightily, more, X natural, of (up-) on (X part), out (of every), over against (+ your) X own, + particularly, so, through (-oughout, -oughout every), thus, (un-) to (-gather, -ward), X uttermost, where (-by), with, in composition it retains many of these applications, and frequently denotes opposition, distribution or intensity.
Greek #906: ballo, bal'-lo; a prim. verb; to throw (in various applications, more or less violent or intense):-arise, cast (out), X dung, lay, lie, pour, put (up), send, strike, throw (down), thrust. Comp. Greek 4498.
Properly translated, this word means casting down or overthrow. Satan was sentenced to being erased from the book of life as a result of his activities that led to the overthrow of the first earth age.
Looking back to that first earth age. What old dragon was in the first earth age, the one before this one. His method of operation to deceive God's children was the same in the first earth age as it is here in this second earth age.
"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars." 
Note that this wonder is "in heaven," not on earth. Those 12 stars are the twelve tribes of Israel. It is also indicative of the 12 signs of the zodiac of the constellations.
From the beginning, you have Virgo the virgin, the one who brings forth the birthing of people. In one day, Moses's mother birthed a million through one birth. Hear and understand what is being talked about here.
You have those 12 tribes of Israel through whom the Messiah, Jesus, would come. This is also an indication of the virgin Mary bringing forth the Christ child, the one who would redeem man through the shedding of His Blood.
"And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born." 
Seven heads and ten horns, Satan was in the first earth age using the same seven headed, ten horned organization in heaven that he is using now on earth in this earth age, the second earth age. According to Ecclesiastes chapter 1, there is nothing new under the sun. What has gone around for man in heaven will go around again here on earth.
"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." 
Satan is a great imitator of God. He uses God's number 7 which means spiritual completeness to deceive the people of the earth.
"If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints." 
Again, the sword of the Lord  is His truth: that two edged sword.
"And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength." 
Then we are told to:
"And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." 
Back to Revelation 13.
"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." 
He looked like a lamb. Why? He is imitating Christ because he is antichrist, meaning instead of Christ from the Greek. He is Satan, that old dragon, the serpent, the devil. Satan is one of the most beautiful creatures that God ever created. As it is written in Ezekiel 28, he was the finished pattern and full sum, and perfect in beauty.
"Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty." 
He will come in apparent peace and prosperity as it is written in Daniel 8:25, saying:
"Come unto me, I love you. Bring your children unto me that I might save them and take them home."
Is this not what the Judeo-Christian churches do today, come down to the altar and accept Christ and you will be saved! They teach that is all that must be done.
However, the Scriptures teach a different story. For even the devils believe in Christ and confess that He is Christ, but they are not saved because of that. No if a person who supposedly accepts Christ does not do any works to prove that he/she is truly repentant and is working for God Almighty is not saved, even though they might think so. Because they have listened to liars teaching false doctrines).
Do you not see how he used this same method in the first earth age? Remember that Satan is the first supernatural entity that will come to the earth claiming to be Christ. If you believe him, you will not be fit for the kingdom. Why? You will no longer be a "chaste virgin" 
"Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. For I am jealous over you with godly jealously: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtility, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ." 
This word beguiled is number 1818 in the Greek.
Greek #1818: exapatao, ex-ap-at-ah'-o; from Greek 1537 and Greek 538; TO SEDUCE WHOLLY:-beguile, deceive.
Greek #1537: ek, ek; or ex, ex; a prim. prep. denoting origin (the point whence motion or action proceeds), from, out (of place, time or cause; lit. or fig.; direct or remote):-after, among, X are, at, betwixt (-yond), by (the means of), exceedingly, (+ abundantly above), for (-th), from (among, forth, up), + grudgingly, + heartily, X heavenly, X hereby, + very highly, in...ly, (because, by reason) of, off (from), on, out among (from, of), over, since, X thenceforth, through, X unto, X vehemently, with (-out). Often used in composition, with the same general import; often of completion.
Greek #538: apatao, ap-at-ah'-o; of uncert. der.; to cheat, i.e., delude:-deceive.
This wholly seduced includes spiritual seduction with is the "fornication" referred to in Revelation. See Matthew 24:19.
"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." 
The beast that was healed is The One World Political System. The deadly wound is the fourth trump. The fifth trump is when Satan presents, himself having been cast out of heaven to the earth by Michael and the angels .
"And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men." 
He shows supernatural acts in order to deceive people into believing he is Jesus, or he will do so with advanced technology and make it appear to be supernatural.
"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." 
The second beast tells them to make an image (statue, profile, representation, or resemblance) of his one world political system. Already in the news, almost daily you see this image being thrown before you.
There is only one multi-headed organization that no one, when it wants to exercise its power, can make war with it. Who do you suppose that is? Figure it out: There is only one, The United Nations.
"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." 
The deception that the political beast will use is one of Words. To be killed here is to be delivered up to death, Satan himself. God says touch not my anointed. He also says not a hair of your head will be harmed.
You will be delivered up to death, to councils and synagogues for a testimony (to bear witness). You will bear witness to the truth.
Those of you who know you have a destiny, who have known for a long time that there is more to God's word than you have been taught by the Judeo-Christian preachers who have sold out to Judaism and Zionism.
Those of you who love God's word and are willing to study and ferret out the truth, you will be delivered up. Take no thought or premeditation regarding what you will say in that day for God will speak through you.
That is the true "tongues" spoken of that will be spoken where every ear will hear in its own dialect, its own language, clearly and distinctly with understanding. This happens when you are delivered up to bear witness.
"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." 
Nobody is going to put a stamp on your forehead or on your right hand. What do you do with your right hand? You serve or work for. That is why Jesus said woe unto them who give suck in those days. And what is in your forehead? Your mind, use it! This mark is referring to the deception of your mind, deception assisted by traditions of men, for most have loved teachers rather than the word of God.
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears." 
This is listening to those who would tell you what you want to hear, rather than teach the Word of God. For example, "flying" away to escape all the trouble when the Word says that "he that endures unto the end shall be saved."
Jesus Himself even Prayed that we be not taken out of the World, but Rather Preserved In The World.
"But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." 
For a second witness:
"I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil." 
Okay, this "mark" isn't going to be bar codes or any other obvious mark. Satan is very crafty and would not try to deceive us with something so blatant. How crafty is he?
"Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" 
He is more wise and crafty than any other beast of the world. It is through lies that he will deceive the people.
We are searching for wisdom. Where is the one place that wisdom comes from?
"For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding." 
We are further told:
"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." 
Many people ignorantly believe that just because it says, "of a man," that this means some flesh and blood man. They lose sight of what the rest of the words say. It is that old dragon. He comes in like a lamb, and speaks like a dragon. It is also written in Isaiah 14:16, dealing with Lucifer, Satan, the old dragon:
"is this the man that made the earth to tremble..."
Again, Satan is not of flesh and blood, yet is called a man. Six hundred three score and six, six being the number of man. Man always falls short of the spiritual perfection, which is seven. The best Satan can do is imitation.
Okay, let's take a look at the word count from "count the number of the beast."
Greek #5585: psephizo, psay-fid'-zo; from Greek 5586; TO USE PEBBLES IN ENUMERATION, i.e. (gen.) to compute:-count.
Greek #5586: psephos, psay'-fos; from the same as Greek 5584; A PEBBLE (AS WORN SMOOTH BY HANDLING), i.e. by impl. of use as a counter or ballot) a verdict (of acquittal) or ticket (of admission); a vote:-stone, voice.
This "count" means to enumerate stone worn smooth in service over a long period of time. What are these stones? They are children, and count them all the way back to where? All the way back to the garden, all the way back to Cain and the other seed line planted in the garden, back to that mark that was put upon Cain in Genesis 4:15.
Even those familiar with the Strong's Concordance are likely to have trouble finding six hundred three score and six. It is called "Stigma" from an obsolete Greek letter that is not used in modern Greek.
Greek #5516: chi xi STIGMA. khee xee stig'-ma; the twenty- second, fourteenth and an obsol. letter (Greek 4742 as a cross of the Greek alphabet (intermediate between the fifth and sixth), used as numbers; denoting respectively six hundred, sixty and six; six hundred sixty-six as a numeral:-six hundred threescore and six.
Greek #4742: stigma, stig'-mah; from a prim. stizo (to "stick," i.e. prick); a mark incised or punched (for recognition of OWNERSHIP), i.e. (fig.) scar of SERVICE:-mark.
Quite Simply it Means a Mark that Looks LikeA Cross! Hear and understand that the mystery Babylon, mother of harlots, is the greater population of Christianity today. They have been deceived.
The Kenites (or Pharisees, the Jews - sons of Cain, Christ said so in John 8:44) have worked their way into Christianity and mis-translated God's Word and mis-taught it from the seminaries right on through.
It is the time of the calling out of God's children from Revelations chapter 7. Do not be deceived by this mark. Let's go to Ezekiel for more documentation.
"Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered mortar." 
They coated the wall with untempered mortar or white-wash. Those who claim to be men of God build up a weak wall and paint it with white-wash. They deceive God's children. Not only do they prevent themselves from entering the kingdom, they also would prevent God's children from entering in.
"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness." 
Hear and understand the picture that God is trying to bring forth to your understanding. It is time to come out of Babylon.
"To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord God." 
How plain does God have to make it? They all cry peace, peace when there is no peace. This peace is the false peace of the one-world government system. Even our most illustrious leader of this great nation himself, pushing as strongly as possible for a one world system where by peace can supposedly be brought into the world. God says there is no peace!
"But the Lord is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation." 
Why? It is because they have whored after antichrist believing him to be Jesus. They have been taught by Judeo-Christian ministers, preachers and etc., that he is the first one to show up, their bride groom. They, like that old Jezebel, will jump into that sack and whore after him, thinking he is Christ.
"And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him." 
"Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens. He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion. When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures." 
This wind is Hebrew 7307:
Hebrew #7307: ruwach, roo'-akh; from Heb. 7306; wind; by resemblance breath, i.e., a sensible (or even violent) exhalation; fig. life, anger, unsubstantiality; by extens. a region of the sky; by resemblance spirit, but only of a rational being includ. its expression and functions):-air, anger, blast, breath, X cool, courage, mind, X quarter, X side, spirit ([-ual]), tempest, X vain, ([whiirl-]) wind (-y).
Hebrew #7306: ruwach, roo'-akh; a prim. root; prop. to blow, i.e. breathe; only (lit.) to smell or (by 'impl. perceive (fig. to anticipate, enjoy)):-accept, smell, X touch, make of quick understanding.
"Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confronted by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them." 
Brutish is Hebrew 1197:
Hebrew #1197: ba'ar, baw-ar'; a prim. root; to kindle, i.e., consume (by fire or by eating); also (as denom. from Heb. 1198) to be (-come) brutish:-be brutish, bring (put, take) away, burn, (cause to) eat (up), feed, heat, kindle, set ([on fire]), waste.
Hebrew #1198: ba'ar, bah'-ar; from Heb. 1197; prop. food (as consumed): i.e. (by exten.) of cattle brutishness; (concr.) stupid:-brutish (person), foolish.
Every man is stupid in his knowledge. Every person who casts a graven image is confused by it because it is a falsehood. There is no life in them. The word breath is ruach, spirit, Hebrew 7307.
"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." 
We are close to the birthing of a new "age." This age, and the sixth day, is almost over. Just like as described in Matthew 24 and Mark 13.
Read them. As labor pains grow closer and closer together, so do the signs of the approaching tribulation. When antichrist arrives, the world, the Christian world, is going to buy it hook, line, and sinker because the false men of God today teach God's children to pray for peace.
The true prince of peace will come after that. Those who are deceived will not be "fit" to enter the kingdom. Don't be one of those.
"But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation." 
This false peace comes in the midst of Daniel's 70th week.
"And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week; and in the mdist 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." 
The true sacrifice is the true Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, and none other. Here is more from the book of Daniel dealing with Satan, many believe to be the antichrist.
"And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people (is this not what the Judeo-Christian preachers doing?). And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand." 
Remember, he (Satan) will come bringing peace and pros-perity, not warfare. Put on the Gospel armor of Ephesians 6.
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickeness in high places." 
Don't be one of the five virgins that run out of the oil, which is the Word of God. Have enough oil in your lamp that you can continue to shine forth and hear, with understanding, God's Word and not the "traditions of men."
Satan will destroy wonderfully, with loving, prosperous works rather than with a pitch fork and red underwear. He will cause craft to prosper and false peace.
