Mark of the Beast

As with all Bible questions about the interpretation of scripture, I seek out the Bible itself, to guide me. This method of interpretation, conforms to the example of Jesus (Mark 7:7-13; John 12:48-49; 7:16) (Ps.119:105; 36:9; Matt.6:22-23). While searching the scriptures for the meaning of the mark of the Beast (Rev.13:16-18); we do find within the Bible, scriptures that guide us in that interpretation. Please consider the verses to follow, and how they aid us in our interpretation of that mark.

Exodus 13:15-16
"And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the LORD all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem. And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt."

A TOKEN would be placed on their hands and foreheads, signifying God's salvation of the firstborn.
What else does this token mean, according to the Word of God?
Exodus 13:9
"And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt."

That symbolic token on the hand and forehead would also signify that God's Law would be remembered...always present in our heart, and then proceed from our mouth. (See Deut.6:6,8; 11:18; Luke 6:45) What our heart contained would become evident by our words (Matt.12:33,34,35) and on this basis, we would be judged (Matt.12:37,36).
  This evidence of our heart's spiritual condition, is symbolized by a spiritual identifying mark, on our hands (evident deeds/practices) and forehead (beliefs, moral code, mental disposition, spiritual perspective and perceptions -Eze.9:4). (Deut.6:6,8; Rev.13:16,17)

Here we see that "the Lord's Law", backed by God's witness when using His power to save,
was signified by the "token" God's people would accept on their forehead and hand.
This served as a token/reminder, to be in servitude to God, and to let His Law guide our mind, actions, and speech/witnessing/"mouth". (Rev.7:3; 14:1)
For, "out of the heart's abundance (Deut.6:6), the mouth speaks." 
(Luke 6:45; Eph.4:15;  1Tim. 4:16; John 7:38)
Within such sacrifices (Heb.13:15), we imitate Christ (Rev.3:14; John 18:37; 1:4; 4:14)(Matt.5:14; Luke 12:35; Acts 1:8).

When we read in Revelation, that God's people leave this servitude and honor for God, in order to serve and worship the Wild Beast, False Prophet, and Satan (Rev.13:4,11,12,7,8);
signified again as having their forehead and hand brand-marked by their lies instead of God's Laws...
   (666 -Rev.13:16,17,18) (Isa.44:20; Ps.144:8; Matt.15:11; Rev.16:13-14)
...then they are no longer obedient slaves of God and Christ (Gal.1:10).... 
....but have become obedient slaves to an Idol/Image, becoming idolaters (Rev.13:8,7,10; Col.2:8).
This sin, also overtakes the "Holy Ones" (Rev.2:20; 13:7,10; Dan.7:21; 11:12,13,24,33,22; 8:11; Matt.24:24,25; Luke 21:24; Rev.11:2;  1Cor. 3:16;  2Thess. 2:4)
God's people (1Pet. 2:10) no longer have "the Lord's thy mouth" (Ex.13:9) and heart (Deut.6:6), but rather, "unclean inspired expressions" guide and direct them (Rev.16:13;  1Tim. 4:1).

  During their slavery to the Beast, False Prophet, and Satan, God's chosen priests are breaking their covenant with God... 
(Deut.10:8; 17:12; 18:5; 21:5;  1Cor. 6:1-3;  1Pet. 2:10,9;  1Chron. 15:2; Rev.5:10), ceasing their priestly service to God 
       (with the exception of Christ - Jer.33:18; Heb.9:11,24; 8:5; 12:22-23; Eze.22:30) 
(Dan.8:11,13; 11:28,30; 7:25; 12:11; Rev.13:7; 11:2; Matt.5:13; Isa.51:23; Luke 21:24; Rev.13:10)
(Isa.62:6; Rev.8:1; Isa.56:10) 
(John 16:13; Isa.62:1-2; 35:5-6; Rev.2:17; Heb.1:1; Rev.11:3; 10:7; 22:6).

According to Ex.13:9; Deut.11:18 and Deut.6:8;
the Bible itself interprets the meaning of Rev.13:16,17.

The Wild Beast Organization is now being given credit for salvation
(instead of God -Rev.7:10; Isa.43:11) (Ex.13:16; Deut.6:6,8) (Rev.13:16,8; Rom.1:25).
The Gentile Beast has replaced Christ as Head of the Bride Congregation (Eph.5:25; Dan.8:11; 11:31;  2Thess. 2:4)
due to the false prophet's endorsement of that Beast and it's idolatrous image (Rev.19:20; Rev.2:20; 8:10,11; 9:1; 13:15)
(2Thess. 2:4;  2Cor. 11:20; Col.2:19).
("the number of a man" -Rev.13:18;  2Thess. 2:3,4)
Mark 13:14

It is the Law of the Beast, whose "image"/"Idol" has been deified by the false prophet, from which the people seek
salvation, knowledge, guidance, and doctrine to teach, rather than from God (Matt.4:4; John 17:17;  2Tim. 3:16,17)... through his Chosen priests (Mal.2:7; Rev.5:10;  2Cor. 5:20; 13:3;  1John 4:1; Matt.10:20;  1Cor. 4:1).

  This is the meaning of being marked on the forehead and hand, by the lies of the Beast (666) (Rev.13:16; Rom.1:25),
rather than by the Truth of God found exclusively in His Word 
(Deut.6,8; Rev.7:3; 14:1; 22:4) (John 17:17; 12:48).

Ex.13:9; Deut.6:6,8; Rev.7:3; 14:1; 22:4

Who do you credit for your salvation?
Whose teachings to you obey?
Where do you direct your Bible students to go, for the truth that leads to life?
To an organization of fallible, un-inspired men... or to the Word of God?
(Ps.146:3; 118:8; Isa.2:22) -- (Rev.13:8)

How do you treat the "least" of Christ's faithful brothers and Chosen priests,
who care not for the approval of men?
(Gal.1:10; John 5:44; Rom.2:28,29; Acts 5:29; John 16:2; Matt.5:11-12)....
    ...The way Jesus directs you to treat them? (Matt.25:45,46,40; Luke 10:16),
    ...or the way the Organization directs you to treat them after they are cast out?
(John 16:2; Matt.10:22; 24:9; Rev.11:3,7-10; Heb.13:13; Isa.66:2,5; Mark 8:35; 13:13; Rev.6:9-11)
          (Because they disagree with the wicked steward (Luke 12:42,45; Rev.17:6),
           the idolization of the Organization (Rev.13:8,7; Rom.1:25),
           the nullifying of God's Word
           (Mark 7:7; Rev.13:11;  1Tim. 4:1; Rev.16:13-16; 20:7-8; 12:15,17; Dan.8:12),
           and they believe that they must serve God and His truth only.
           -- Matt.4:10; Dan.11:32)

2Cor. 11:4,20,12-15; Rev.2:20; 13:15-16

  1. Interesting ... have you any more info on Satan being the lord destroyer in the bible ?

    1. (Ex.12:23; Job 1:12; Isa.33:1; Rev.9:11; John8:44; 10:10; 1Cor.5:5; Heb.2:14; 1Pet.5:8).
      I suggest using the search box, as well as the following:
      What is lacking from the scriptures already given,
      and which of these can you nullify?
      When you ask yourself, "What is God's nature?"
      and you also ask, "What is Satan's nature?"
      How do YOU read the Bible's answer?

      Ask yourself,
      "To whom do sinners and those who are judged, belong?"
      If Satan owns those who are condemned, who decides what happens to those ones?
      Would God take and murder someone else's property?
      Would God kill someone else's sons?
      Please fully use your thinking and reasoning ability, when it comes to the scriptures.
      We are not given truth on a silver platter, but we are expected to "dig"
      (Prov.2:4,5; 2:11; Heb.5:14; 1Tim.4:15,16)

      If we have truly been given free will by God (who is not a liar),
      then would it be righteous for God to kill us for using it? Would that really be free will?
      When we leave God, we have chosen to belong to Satan and to be his sons, coming under his power, dominion, and control.
      When we consequentially die, we do so under Satan. He is the "manslayer", not God.
      When we receive eternal life, we do so because God has "saved" and protected us. From what? From Himself?
      No. "From the wicked one" (Matt.6:13; 1John5:19), and his power to destroy (John10:10; 1Pet.5:8).

    2. We are destroyed, through death. Death and destruction were begun by Satan. He lied about being the Destroyer (Gen.3:4; 2Cor.2:11). Since Eden, he is lord over creation, and through him, the power of death reigns over it. God's justice has permitted this, in response to the free-will choice of Adam and Eve (Rom.8:19-22). As a result, creation is submerged in corruption, through which it has been destroyed. Satan is Lord of death / destruction (Heb.2:14), both throughout the Hebrew scriptures, and the Greek (Rev.9:11). It is only by God's grace, that we are rescued from the Destroyer (Col.1:13-14; Luke1:79; Ps.107:10-11) and made able to continue living in God's light (James 1:17; 1John 1:5; John1:4; 8:12; 10:10; Isa.33:1).

  2. The mark of the beast is a calculation, a combination of numbers applied to the numbers. Two choices: the 666-beast out of the sea represents Trinity-believing Christendom. The lamb-beast out of the earth represents the Watchtower Society.

    The formula to find the correct letter derived from a number sums up the three sixes and then adds the number of the digits or different digits, which is 3 or 1. Adding one digit also reflects the Trinity formula of three gods yet one god.


    21st letter=S=SSS
    19th letter=Koph=KKK

    1. I have learned the hard way, that accurate interpretation of Biblical symbolism, must be from God (Gen.40:8 b). There are endless, conflicting, human-sourced speculations that end in error (Matt.15:9; Isa.55:8-9; Prov.14:12; 2:6; 3:5). I note that you do not refer me to any scriptural citation, nor provide scripture as the source or basis of your interpretive assertion. There is then, in my mind, no worthy indication to accept it.
      As regards the 666; Rev.13:18 NKJV tells us that "it is the number of a man" (See 2Thess.2:3).
      Those three sixes are again referred to, at Rev.16:13-14 (2Thess.2:9) and are referred to as "demonic expressions" /teachings/spirits/lying signs
      (see 1Tim.4:1; 2Thess.2:3 a; 2Thess.2:9-12,9; Matt.24:24-25; Rev.19:20).

      If any reader is firmly convinced that the keys to accurate interpretation of the Bible's symbolism, must be based in scripture; please consider such an interpretation of 666, found here: ( ).
      The sea beast (Rev.13:1) and earth/Lamb beast (Rev.13:11) can also be clearly interpreted through scripture.
      The earth and sea are interpreted first (Isa.57:20; 66:1; Eze.43:6-7; 1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5).
      The alliance between the earth beast (unfaithful prophet of God / Jew -Rom.2:28-29)
      and the sea beast (Gentiles)... the alliance of the harlot and beast... the false prophet and sea-beast... the iron and clay... the Jews and Gentiles> (who trample God's temple/holy city/sanctuary) ...are all depictions of the same prophetic identities and events.
      The 3 LIES (666) coming from 3 liars (Satan, false prophet, sea-beast) are central to this alliance of power, which is used to subvert, conquer, disable, and trample down God's Temple priesthood and their divine authority, which occurs during the Great Tribulation.
      If there is any aspect of this information that the links above do not address; please use the contact form to the right>
      and ask for your specific need. I will then refer you to the scriptures that address your question.

    2. Why don't you simply compare the following scriptures...
      Rev.13:16-18 is where we see that the number (666) of the beast is imposed on the forehead and right hand.
      Then read Isa.44:20; Ps.144:8
      Now consider what spiritual symbol SHOULD BE on our forehead and right hand...
      Deut.11:18; Jer.31:33; Deut.6:6,8
      Do you not see that God's laws of divine truth are replaced in the hearts of those who serve and obey the Beasts?
      Instead of having God's truth in their heart, the lying laws and demonic deceptions of the 3 liars are written on the hearts of those who worship the image of the sea-beast (Rev.13:8). The false prophet (earth-beast) is at fault for this idolatry. That unfaithful prophet gave an image to the sea-beast/Gentiles, of being spirit-directed (Rev.13:14-15) (see John20:22).
      All you had to do, was actually read the post above, and the scriptures contained which pop-up for your convenience.
