    Heard of "The Gospel"? Want to know more?

    There is salvation in no other, for there is not another name under heaven having been given among men, by which it behooves us to be saved."

What do you suppose is the "mark of the beast"?

Is it something that has yet to come? And who gets anything put on their forehead? Might it be a bandana? Very strange. Here are a couple of verses from Revelations that discusses the "mark of the beast".

Revelation 13:16-17
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 to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.

Revelation 14:9-10
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.

United(6 letters) States(6) Dollar(6) is the "666 mark of the Beast that everyone must have to buy or sell". Globally, the US Dollar is the primary currency. The "1st Beast"/Antichrist was Ronald(6 letters) Wilson(6) Reagan(6) and George Walker Bush (Jr.) is the "2nd Beast"/Antichrist. Donald(6) Johann(6) Drumpf(6) - his German name - is the current Antichrist in the US.

But scripture never mentions just one antichrist, but that there are many all over the world, but we will know when the last one will come as being the son of perdition. This beast out of the sea in Rev 13 is a Luciferian system that controls world wide economics, political, military, educational, environmental and false religious system. This beast system that Satan works through gives its power to the beast out of the earth false prophet/son of perdition as the beast out of the earth appears as the Lamb of God, but is a false Christ being the son of perdition, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12

BTW antichrist was never capitalized in scripture and taught to be only one that will come in the end of days.

1John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

Wrong. Don't confuse the Antichrist/"666 1st Beast" and "2nd Beast" with antichrists. That's like confusing the returned Christ and Christians.

I John 2:18 New Living Translation
Dear children, the last hour is here. You have heard that the Antichrist is coming, and already many such antichrists have appeared. From this we know that the last hour has come.

, but that there are many all over the world, but we will know when the last one will come as being the son of perdition.
Wrong and that's not Biblical.
This beast out of the sea in Rev 13 is a Luciferian system that controls world wide economics, political, military, educational, environmental and false religious system.
Ronald(6 letters) Wilson(6) Reagan(6) was a Hollywood actor and starred in only one movie with his wife Nancy: Hellcats of the Navy based on the book Hellcats of the Sea. Ronnie played the commander in WWII of a submarine: "a beast coming out of the sea".

dragon = d Ragon = -----d Reagan
This beast system that Satan works through gives its power to the beast
US president. The "666 1st Beast" is the "ruler of all nations" - he must be a US president since 1945.
out of the earth false prophet/son of perdition as the beast out of the earth appears as the Lamb of God, but is a false Christ being the son of perdition, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12
Where do you see "son of perdition" - book, chapter, verse?
BTW antichrist was never capitalized in scripture and taught to be only one that will come in the end of days.
Wrong and wrong. Search 1 John 2:18 in http://biblehub.com . And there is no "end of days". There's "end of the age" - Matthew 13:40 & 24:3. The Age of Pisces ended on 12/21/12 and the Age of Aquarius began.

In The Revelation/Apocalypse, John of Patmos (probably the Apostle) encoded Kaisar Neron (Greek) as "six hundred sixty-six (666)" in Hebrew gematria.
1John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
Do you recognize Donald Trump 666 as the current Antichrist?

Maybe your NLT capitalizes the "A" but the KJV as well as many translations do not. The antichrist are all those who oppose God that Satan unknown to them works through.

Anyone can give numbers to letters to make it a whoever name they want to use, but if you truly get out of the numerology and get into studying the history of the four Empires you can clearly see what the beast out of the sea who gives power to the beast out of the land being a Luciferian system that controls world wide economics, political, military, educational, environmental and false religious system. This beast system that Satan works through gives its power to the beast out of the earth as the beast out of the earth appears as the Lamb of God, but is a false Christ being the son of perdition/lawless one, John 17:12; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12.

You need to quit following that false prophet Richard Bradshaw that claims he is the incarnation of Christ as you are being deceived by the lies of Satan.

One last thing to add. Ronald Reagan is dead so that would leave him out of being antichrist/son of perdition/false prophet as in the end Christ will cast the beast and the false prophet alive into the lake of fire,
Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Brad Watson Miami here are some numbers that also fit this last antichrist/son of perdition/ beast out of the land.

His number 666 can easily be worked out from his many titles, one of which is ‘Vicarius Filii Dei’ meaning ‘in the place of God.’ vicar=short for, in place of, and Dei=short for Deity.

In Roman/Latin numerals, V=5, I=1, C=100, A=0, R=0, I=1, U=5 (same as V), S=0. Total= 112
F=0, I=1, L=50, I=1. I=1. Total=53
D=500, E=0, I=1. Total=501. Grand Total= 112+53+501=666

Hello Brad.
Do me a huge favor would ya? In regard to Revelation, learn to say, “I disagree, and here’s why…”.

When you say, “wrong and wrong”, it creates an atmosphere that can get combative and when it comes to this subject, we need to understand that others may see things differently. And it’s ok to see things differently in this subject.

The Classical Greek word charagma (χάραγμα), translated as mark (of the beast) in Revelation 13:16 can mean any mark engraved, imprinted, or branded; stamped money, document, or coin.

The word "mark" means a currency or unit of account as in the German Deutsche Mark.

The word mark comes from a merging of three Teutonic/Germanic words, Latinised in 9th-century post-classical Latin as marca, marcha, marha or marcus. It was a measure of weight mainly for gold and silver.

Revelation was not written in German though.
It was written in Greek, and the word mark was translated from the word "stigma" meaning to stick into. Much like a implantsble microchip is stuck into a human.
Also when an implantable microchip is ruptured under the skin, it causes a painful sore like a boil.

Original Greek with English translation:

17καὶ ἵνα μή τις δύνηται ἀγοράσαι ἢ πωλῆσαι εἰ μὴ ὁ ἔχων τὸ χάραγμα, τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ θηρίου ἢ τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ ὀνόματος αὐτοῦ. 18Ὧδε ἡ σοφία ἐστίν· ὁ ἔχων τὸν νοῦν ψηφισάτω τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ θηρίου· ἀριθμὸς γὰρ ἀνθρώπου ἐστί· καὶ ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτοῦ χξϛʹ.

english
"17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18Here 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 666."


17καὶ ἵνα μή τις δύνηται ἀγοράσαι ἢ πωλῆσαι εἰ μὴ ὁ ἔχων τὸ χάραγμα, τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ θηρίου ἢ τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ ὀνόματος αὐτοῦ. 18Ὧδε ἡ σοφία ἐστίν· ὁ ἔχων νοῦν ψηφισάτω τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ θηρίου, ἀριθμὸς γὰρ ἀνθρώπου ἐστίν· καὶ ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτοῦ ἑξακόσιοι ἑξήκοντα ἕξ.

The Greek term χάραγμα (charagma, "mark" in Revelation 13:16) was most commonly used for imprints on documents or coins.

This isn't about coins though.
This is about the right hand or forehead.
The idea is to mark the human body.

Besides, Israel is going cashless and Netanyahu had already let it slip about passing laws to microchip. He tried to walk it back but it already slipped out of his mouth.

It's all about money.

The mark symbolizes the all-embracing economic power of Rome, whose coins bore the emperor's image and without which no one could buy or sell.

The Beast symbolizes the State, the political power that opposes the ways of God and God's Kingdom.

The State's power to overprint currency inevitably causes hyperinflation, making the currency worthless. The State will then promise to solve the inflation problem by issuing digital currency that they have total control over. The value of digital currency can be automatically updated to track inflation.

Digital currency will need be stored on some kind of memory device, perhaps a microchip implanted beneath a fingerprint that you scan to verify your identity.
