the mark of the beast
Read Revelation 13:1-18
Revelation 13:18 "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 Six hundred threescore six"
This number is spiritual, so God's chosen people we are to practice:I Corinthians 2:12-13 "12 Now we have received,
not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we know the things that are freely given to us of God.13
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual
things with spiritual"
verse 13, last part "comparing spiritual things with spiritual"
6:63 "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, are spirit, and
The Bible is a spiritual book, and the desire of God's elect/chosen is to see and hear the spiritual
message; if we cannot see or hear (understand) the spiritual message, we will leave it alone and confess that we do not understand,
until the Lord Jesus Christ reveals the truth
Deuteronomy 29:2-4 "2 And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all
that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;3 The great temptations which thine eyes have seen,
the signs, and those great miracles:4 Yet
the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day"
testament Israel = Today's Christianity
Perceive = (Qal) to know, to perceive and
see, find out and discern, to know
by experience, to recognise, admit,
acknowledge, confess, to have knowledge,
be wise. (Niphal) to be made known, be or become known, be revealed, to be perceived, to be instructed.
The beast of
Revelation 13 = religious man without the Spirit of God.
Psalm 49:20 " Man in honour, and
understandeth not, is like the beasts perish"
This man in honour knows the word of
God, but understandeth not the message, which is: "SALVATION IS OF THE LORD"
3:18 "I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God manifest them, and that they see that they
themselves are beasts"
Man in honour
Matthew 23:1-11 "1 Then spake Jesus to the
multitude, and to his disciples,2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:3 All therefore whatsoever they
bid you observe, observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.4 For they bind heavy burdens and
grievous to be borne, and lay on men's shoulders; but they will not move them with one of their fingers.5 But all their works
they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,6 And love the
uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men,
Rabbi, Rabbi.8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, Christ; and all ye are brethren.9 And call no your father
upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, Christ.11
But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant"
Many great religious men bring the Bible or
know the word of God, but do not know God's Salvation, and multitudes follow them.
Now, Revelation 13:18 tells
us that we are to count the number of the beast (man without the Spirit of God), it also tells us that; that number 666 is
the number of a man, what kind of man?
I Corinthians 2:14 "But the natural man receiveth
not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know, because they are spiritually
This natural man has not received the Spirit of God, but has the spirit of the world; no
wonder false teachers (freewill of man doctrine) bring physical things: physical water baptism, physical tithing, and physical
Isaiah 27:1 "In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall
punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon
that [is] in the sea"
"in the sea" means in the world.
Revelation 12:19 "And the great
dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into
the earth, and his angels were cast out with him"
Revelation 20:2 "And he laid hold on the dragon, that
old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years"
The dragon is the spirit of Satan:
Isaiah 14:12-14 "12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! art thou cut down to the ground,
which didst weaken the nations!13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above
the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:14 I will ascend above the
heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High"
Remember: man is the house or a temple; either the house/temple
of unclean spirits (devils) or the house/temple of God; when man believes he has control of his life or destiny and is trusting
in his doings for the salvation of his soul, Satan is seated in the throne, which is the heart of man. Man says in his heart
"I made the decision or I accepted Christ, or I am doing" that is the spirit of Lucifer. Man has become like the
most High, There is only one "I AM" that is the Lord Jesus Christ. He rules over men. Freewill of man doctrine teachers
say "man has rights and God must respect those rights" this is a blasphemy.
Daniel 4:16-17 "Let
his heart be changed from man's, and let a beast's heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him.17 This matter
by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living know that the most
High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men"
The Holy Ghost teaches people God's sovereignty:
Psalm 115:3 "But our God in the heavens: he
hath done whatsoever he hath pleased"
Psalm 135:6 "Whatsoever the LORD pleased, did he in heaven, and
in earth, in the seas, and all deep places"
Psalm 90:3 "Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest,
Return, ye children of men"
Now lets go back to the mark of the beast; remember the dragon is the spirit of
Satan and his mark is 666 and is put/marked on a natural man or beast (religious man who has not received the Spirit of God)
Now, what does 6 represent?
Exodus 16:26 "Six days ye shall gather it;
but on the seventh day, the sabbath, in it there shall be none"
Exodus 20:11" For [in] six
days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed
the sabbath day, and hallowed it"
Exodus 23:12 "Six days thou shalt do
thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger
Exodus 31:15 "Six days work be done; but in the seventh,
the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death"
Exodus 34:21"Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing
time and in harvest thou shalt rest"
Exodus 35:2 "Six days shall work be
done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to the LORD: whosoever doeth work therein
shall be put to death"
Leviticus 23:3 "Six days shall work be done: but
the seventh day [is] the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work: it [is] the sabbath of the LORD in all
Six represents "WORK"
I like to give you a pearl: The Seventh Day,
the Sabbath of Rest is the Lord Jesus Christ. No wonder, by God's grace I have been resting in Christ alone since He brought
Salvation to my soul. No physical works for God's chosen people.
Christ is our rest!
Now, I understand
that 6 represents "work"
Revelation 13:15-17 "15 And he had power to give life unto the image
of the beast, that the image of the beast both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast be
killed.16 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:17 And that no man buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his
Verse 15 he (the dragon) had power to give life unto the image of the beast (man without the Spirit
of God believes he has power to make the decision to salvation/to be born spiritually) that the image of the beast both speak
(he knows/brings the Bible) and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast (God's chosen people will not
hold/embrace freewill of man doctrine) be killed (put out of congregations/silence)
Verse 16 he (dragon) causeth all
(christian congregations of all denominations believe freewill of man doctrine) both small and great, rich and poor, free
and bond, to receive a mark (666 = works) in their right hand (power) or in their foreheads (minds)
verse 17 and that
no man buy or sell (God's chosen people cannot bring the truth to congregations) save he that had the mark, or the name of
the beast, or the number of his name (must believe these three false doctrines: physical water baptism, physical tithing,
and physical communion in order to teach in congregations)
Today, every single Christian denomination believes
that the child of God must do these three works:1) physical water baptism, 2) physical tithing, and 3) physical communion;
if he/she is to be obedient to God's commandments.
All these teach the same: Roman Catholics (the mother of all,
control [seats upon many waters]over the world) Presbyterians, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Baptist, Mormons, Jehovah's witness,
Pentecostals, Christian scientist, Seven Day Adventist, Reformed, Church of God in Christ, Sovereign Grace, Worldwide Church
of God, Methodist; if there are any more, will be added to the list. Most teach freewill of man doctrine and some do not;
but they all teach works (physical water baptism, physical tithing, and physical communion) to show salvation.
Remember the number 666 is spiritual and 6 represents = work
Psalm 40:4 "Blessed that man that maketh the
LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies"
Psalm 58:1-6 "1 Do ye indeed
speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh
the violence of your hands in the earth.3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born,
speaking lies.4 Their poison [is] like the poison of a serpent: like the deaf adder stoppeth her ear;5 Which will not hearken
to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of
the young lions, O LORD"
Psalm 62:1-4 "1 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him my salvation.2 He only
my rock and my salvation; my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall
be slain all of you: as a bowing wall, a tottering fence.4 They only consult to cast down from his excellency: they delight
in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah"
Psalm 101:6-8 "6 Mine eyes upon
the faithful of the land, that they dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.7 He that worketh deceit
shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.8 I will early destroy all the wicked of
the land; that I cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD"
Verse 6: Faithful
of the land = God's elect proclaiming "Salvation is of the Lord"
He that walketh in a perfect way = God's elect know and trust Christ is in control of Salvation and life.
He shall serve me = Remember the sheep and the goats; the sheep served the King's
people, the goats did not.
Verse 7: He that worketh deceit = Freewill of man doctrine teachers.
He that telleth lies = freewill of man doctrine believers.
14:25 "A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful speaketh lies"
Revelation 2:9 " I know thy
works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews,
and are not, but the synagogue of Satan"
Jew = a Christian. Freewill of
man doctrine believers called themselves Christians, but the spirit of Lucifer dwells in them. Satan makes people believe
they are in control of their lives, therefore making them the synagogue of Satan.
The true Jew
= Romans 2:29 "But he a Jew, which is one inwardly and circumcision of the heart, in the spirit; not in the letter; whose
praise not of men, but of God
Revelation 13:18 "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 Six hundred threescore
Wisdom = The Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:30-31 "30 But of him are ye in Christ
Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31 That, according as it
is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord"
Only by the Spirit of Christ or Holy Ghost is
that God's elect could perceive the number of the beast.
Isaiah 6:8-10 "8 Also I heard the voice of the
Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I: Here I, send me.9 And he said: Go, and tell this people,
Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their
ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart,
and convert, and be healed"
Man worships himself, or the image of the beast, when he believes it is in
his power to save the soul.
Man is marked (666) when he believes a child of God must do these three
physical works: physical water baptism, physical tithing and physical communion.
Do you have
the mark of the beast?
666 = Salvation by works
John 8:32 " And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make
PRAISE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
