Don’t Take the Mark!

Revelation 14:9 “And another, a third, angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any one do homage to (worship) the beast and its image, and receive a mark upon his forehead or upon his hand,” 10 “he also shall drink of the wine of the fury of God prepared unmixed in the cup of his wrath, and he shall be tormented in fire and brimstone before the holy angels and before the Lamb.” 11 “And the smoke of their torment goes up to ages of ages, and they have no respite day and night who do homage to the beast and to its image, and if any one receive the mark of its name.” First of all, “666” is NOT the “mark of the beast” - it’s the “beast’s” number! Revelation 13:18 “Here is wisdom. He that has understanding let him count the number of the beast: for it is a man‟s number; and its number is six hundred and sixty-six.” Assuming that true Satanists are knowledgeable in their craft, only faux Satanists and ignorant people of all persuasions believe that “666” is the “mark of the beast”! So what, exactly, is the “mark of the beast”? What does scripture say? Revelation 13:16 “And it causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bondmen, that they should give them a mark upon their right hand or upon their forehead;”

17 “and that no one should be able to buy or sell save he that had the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of its name.” From these scriptures, we know that everyone shall be required to receive the “mark” “upon their right hand or upon their forehead” (also note that here the “mark” is differentiated from the “beast’s” name and number). Commerce shall become dependent upon possession of the “mark”. So what items can we find today that meets these criteria?

Many popular ones are easily eliminated. As already noted, “666” isn’t the “mark of the beast”. Bar codes, such as found on merchandise, have long been a popular candidate but there has never been a law passed requiring everyone to be tattooed with a bar code. However, a law was passed in 2010 that does REQUIRE that EVERYONE be implanted with a RFID chip! H.R. 3200 section 2521, Pg. 1001, paragraph 1. “The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the „registry‟) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that is or has been used in or on a patient; and is a class III device; or a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining.” Please note: A class II implantable device is an “implantable radio frequency transponder system for patient identification and health information.” The purpose of a class II device is to collect data on medical patients such as “claims data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the Secretary.” Furthermore, line 17, subparagraph B: “validating methods for analyzing patient safety and outcomes data from multiple sources and for linking such data with the information included in the registry as described in subparagraph (A)”. Going back to subparagraph A it says: “including in the registry, in a

manner consistent with subsection (f), appropriate information to identify each device described in paragraph (1) by type, model, and serial number or other unique identifier;”. But this chip is required to do far more than just retain a patient’s medical history: Page 58 Lines 5 through 15 “(D) enable the real-time (or near real time) determination of an individual‟s financial responsibility at the point of service and, to the extent possible, prior to service, including whether the individual is eligible for a specific service with a specific physician at a specific facility, which may include utilization of a machine-readable health plan beneficiary identity detection card; (E) enable, where feasible, near real-time adjudication of claims”. So this chip is also to be linked to your bank account! As a result of this law, enacted on March 23rd, 2010 and to be implemented “not later than 36 months after the date of the enactment” (page 1004), the United States requires that everyone be implanted with this device! In conclusion, at this point in time, the RFID chip by far the best candidate for being the “mark of the beast”. This of course begs the questions: 1) Do you have strong enough principles to refuse to allow an RFID chip to be implanted in your body? 2) Are you willing to suffer the penalties for refusing the implantation of the RFID chip? and 3) Do you really care?
