Exploring Prophetic Mysteries

With Daniel Speck 7.6.10

 

Mark of the Beast, 666

                    

Six hundred sixty six is the number of the beast and the infamous Mark of the Beast corresponds to this. During the Tribulation, the false prophet will attempt to force everyone to wear the Mark, which is the equivalent of both 666 and the name of the beast. All will be required to put it on their forehead or the hand. Those who refuse it will not be allowed to buy or sell.

 

The full, undiluted wrath of God will be the judgment of anyone who receives the Mark. Their punishment will be eternal torture and no rest forever and ever.

Those who refuse to worship the beast or his image and refuse to receive the Mark of the Beast will be the first to be resurrected and reign with Christ for a thousand years.

 

Mark of the Beast Scriptures:  

 

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred sixty six. Revelation 13: 15-18. NASV

 

Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” Revelation 14:9-12 NASV

 

And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image; these two were thrown into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. Revelation 19:20. NASV

 

Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshipped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. Revelation 20:4 NASV

 

Theories for the Mark of the Beast

 

The Mark of the Beast is one of the most controversial of all the Last Days prophecies. It seems there is a new theory proposed for the Mark almost every week. Lets look at the Scriptures in the book of Revelation that describes the Mark.

 

Major points of these Scriptures

 

• It is forced by the false prophet

• It is forced on everyone in the world

• It will be put on either the right hand or the forehead

• Only those with the mark will be able to buy and sell

• Either the mark or the name or the number of the beast must be used

• It is a man’s number

• The number of the beast is 666

• There is certain judgment and no repentance for anyone who takes the Mark of the Beast

 

The Most Popular Theories

 

• The number 666

• An implanted microchip

• A barcode

• Sunday worship instead of Saturday

• An International ID number

• Rejection of some cult’s beliefs

• The name of the Beast

• The Star of David

• 666 Blasphemous names

• Any number of specific letters or symbols

• Merely symbolic of something else

 

Problems with the most popular theories

 

The number 666: This is valid, since it is given as one of the options, but it is a number, not a mark

The implanted microchip: The mark is said to be put on the hand or forehead, not under the skin. A microchip may be used as well, but that is not a mark

The barcode: This is not really a mark either, but a number in another form

A name: This is valid, since it is given as one of the options, but a name is not a mark

A sect or cult’s beliefs: The Scripture is very clear that it is a physical mark on the hand or forehead

Merely symbolic: If it is symbolic, then the text loses it’s whole meaning and purpose. This is a common tactic of skeptics, cults and sects in an attempt to disqualify Scriptures which clearly contradict their unbiblical beliefs.

 

What a legitimate theory for the mark should include

 

• It should be a mark, that is, not a number or a name

• It should be the equivalent of both the number and name

• It should be indelible, like a brand or tattoo

• It should illustrate the number 666

• It should illustrate the name of the beast

• It is a mark that should represent a man

 

The number must be converted to a mark

 

• Since we do not know the name of the beast, we are left with the number 666.

• Since the mark is neither number nor name, it must be a symbol that represents the number 666

• I know of no symbol that represent the number 666, but there is a widely used symbol that does represent the number 6

The Graphic Symbol for six

 

• The pentagram is the graphic symbol for the number six because the pentagram is made up of six parts:

 

 

 

 

“For the number is that of a man”

 

• In Biblical numerology, six is the number of man

• Six is the number of incompletion or of falling short of the perfect number seven

• Man was created on the sixth day

• Man’s labor was to take place on six days

• Six is the number of human effort

• The major body parts of man are six: head, 2 arms, 2 legs and torso

 

The Pentagram is a graphic symbol of a man as shown in this ancient occult illustration

 

 

The Pentagram is the most widely used occult symbol

 

• The Pentagram is the graphic symbol most associated with occultist worship

• In paganism, witchcraft, and Satan worship, it is often inverted, symbolizing man worshipping Satan

• The pentagram can be corrupted, that is, the head turned down toward hell

• It may have a circle around it, which symbolizes the exclusion of God

 

The Pentagram as a pagan symbol

The Pentagram is universally accepted

 

• A pentagram by itself simply represents a man. How it is used determines if it has a sinister meaning or not

• The pentagram is the most widely used graphic on the flags of the world

• Pentagrams are commonly used in all kinds of logos, decorations, currencies, and documents

• The pentagram also represents a star, which is symbolic of achievement and high aspirations

• Pentagrams are already used universally, so its use as a symbol of a world-wide organization would be readily accepted, and would not alarm most people

 

 

The next step is simple and logical

 

• Three Satanic personalities make their appearance in the Last Days:

1. The Dragon

2. The Beast

3. The False Prophet

• These three make up the Satanic Trinity that will manifest itself fully during the Tribulation

• The number 666 is a trinity of sixes, one for each member

 

And now we have the Mark of the Beast

 

• It is a graphic mark that represents the number 666

• It is made up of a symbol that represents man

• It graphically illustrates the satanic trinity that will take over the world during the Tribulation

 

 

And so this is what may prove to be the Mark of the Beast

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Tri-pentagram mark is already showing up on the Euro!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One more point

 

The great nemesis of Israel was Babylon. According to the prophetic Scriptures, Mystery Babylon, in some form, will rise again in the last days to dominate the world.

What symbol does the flag of Babylon have on it today?

OK, Babylon doesn’t have a flag, or does it? What country is ancient Babylon in today? Iraq! Take a look at the Iraqi flag:

 

 

 

 

 

 

The name of the Beast and 666

 

Besides representing the number of the Beast, 666, the tri-pentagram mark also represents the name of the Beast. This may give clues to the identification of the Antichrist. The three personalities of the unholy trinity, the Dragon, the Beast, and the False Prophet, are the antithesis of the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three personalities may be described in the name of the Beast, something like Abbas Bin-Hadad (father, son of Hadad) or the equivalent in another language.

 

 

The Mark of the Beast could be invisible

 

There is a growing fad in the tattoo industry of using clear, florescent inks to create tattoos. Theses are visible only under ultraviolet light. When the Mark of the Beast begins to be used, it may be a florescent ink tattoo, so that the mark will be virtually invisible under most conditions. You could encounter someone with the Mark on their hand or forehead and not even realize it.  

 

 

Mark of the Beast headband

 

The Mark of the Beast may start out as a headband of the Iraqi flag or as three stars on the headband of an “Occupy” type movement that will sweep the world. Zealous supporters of the movement may eventually start tattooing three pentagrams on their foreheads. When the one-world leader comes into power, he may use this movement’s headband symbol as his official icon, eventually requiring anyone who wishes to participate in his world economy to have it tattooed on their forehead or hand.  

 

 

 

Summary

 

The Mark of the Beast will likely consist of three pentagrams. The pentagram, having six parts, symbolizes the number six as well as being a universal symbol for a man. Three pentagrams symbolize the unholy trinity who will make their appearance during the Tribulation: The Dragon, the Beast, and the False Prophet. The tri-pentagram mark has already become a popular tattoo design and is in use on the Euro and the Iraqi flag. Look for the tri-pentagram mark logo to gain in popularity in culture, on currency and in world political movements.

The Tri-pentagram Mark

 

• The tri-pentagram mark is already in wide use today. Enter “three stars” in an internet image search engine and you will see how some business and political groups are already using it.

• Do a search of “three star tattoo” and you will see that it is becoming an increasingly popular choice for a tattoo.

• How many places can you find that this mark is being used today?

      • Just as Hitler used the swastika to symbolize his movement, the tri-pentagram mark may be used as the                 symbol of the Antichrist.
