Antichrist’s Slave Brand - 666
“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. And 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” – (Rev.13:16,17).
“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood
“Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads” – (Rev.7:3).
“And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads” – (Rev.22:3,4).
It is essential in these end times and the soon coming rapture of God’s saints and the great tribulation and the mark of the Beast that we understand the nature of the mark. The two key words that show the nature of the mark are ‘Servants and Redeemed.’ Receiving ‘666’ in your right hand or forehead shows plainly to the universe that you are a servant-slave of Satan. It is your slave brand that shows that you are his property and that you are the child of your father the Devil and will spend eternity in hell with him and his family.
The mark of God is in the book of Revelation
just as often as the mark of Satan’s Beast. Everything that Satan does is a
counterfeit of God’s program. Satan gets as close to God’s truth as he can in order
to greatly deceive. There is nothing original about the mark of the Beast, but
rather Satan is merely counterfeiting God’s mark as he too, now marks his
servants in their foreheads. Satan is a cruel slave master. His hatred against
Christ for shedding His blood on
When men obey the temptation of Satan to sin
as Adam did, they became servants of sin and Satan and death – “his servants ye are to whom ye obey.”
But when you obey the gospel of Christ the Redeemer and you’re saved, you are
redeemed from the slavery of sin and Satan and death and become free servants
of God and righteousness. The mark of the Beast shows plainly Satan marking his
servant-slaves who have rejected the gospel of Christ and his redemption from
the slave-making power of sin. The Beast will be the master fronting for Satan
as the mark of the Beast enslaves the world. After the 1000 years millennial
Among the Romans, slaves were marked with
the master’s name or mark on the forehead. And during the reign of the empire
of the Beast, the revived
In (Rev.20:1-3), after the tribulation we see Satan bound with a chain and a mark set upon him and cast into the bottomless pit for a 1000 years. So God marks and imprisons Satan for a 1000 years. He who marked millions of people with 666 and enslaves them, has the same thing happen to him.
A new and improved mark of the Beast was revealed in January 2007 that fits perfectly the Bible requirements. It’s called ‘RFID INK’ or ‘Radio Frequency Identification.’ It’s ‘chipless,’ meaning no microchips are involved. It can be either invisible ink or colored. It takes only about five seconds to tattoo an animal and there is no need to remove fur. The RFID ink can be read by readers from 4 feet away. The ink could also be used to track. It’s made by Somark. The ink reflects radio waves in the form of readable alpha-numeric identifications. We are told that up to 15 digits are readable in this new system. It acts as a type of electronic tattoo.
The mark of the Beast will be a computer digit,
It will control our destinies, God forbid it.
This ink can be visible or invisible. Most people probably would prefer the mark to be invisible, but it might become fashionable to wear a visible tattoo to show loyalty to the Beast. It could become a mark of status. You can see a clear example of God marking His own in their foreheads with ink in (Ezk.9). “And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side: and the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof” – (Ezk.9:3,4). We are redeemed by Christ when we believe the gospel preached to us in the Bible, written with ink. And we’re sealed by the Holy Spirit – “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise.” – (Eph.1:13). An invisible mark – amen. So we see that there is nothing original about the mark of the Beast, but Satan is merely counterfeiting God’s mark as he marks his servants like God does.
God’s mark starts in the Bible with the Passover in Egypt as God redeems His people from bondage by the blood of the Passover Lamb. God said – “And it shall be a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes…” – (Ex.13:9). God’s first mention shows us the mark and slaves and freedom and redemption by the blood of our Passover Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ. Yes, the mark of the Beast is a mark of enslavement upon all those who are servants of sin and Satan. After 40 years of sinful wandering in the wilderness of Sin, we are shown that their bondage was far greater than a mere physical bondage and a bodily exodus from slavery in Egypt. Their constant sinning testified that their hearts were still in the land of bondage. Only a small percentage of Jews by faith broke the spiritual yoke of bondage and entered into God’s liberty into the Promised Land. Yes, 666 is the mark of the Beast’s slaves. They will wear the mark of their master Satan and become electronically enslaved by computer digits.
I believe we must watch closely our black and white problem here in the U.S. To call Abraham Lincoln the great emancipator and the redeemer president because he freed the slaves and was assassinated on Good Friday, is blasphemy. I believe Antichrist could very well be a black president of the U.S. that would fulfill the American dream and go from the slavehouse to the Whitehouse, as it were. He would greatly eclipse Lincoln as a redeemer president because he resurrects from death after his assassination – (Rev.13:3,12). He will be a counterfeit Christ and a counterfeit redeemer but he enslaves not frees. He will tattoo his name, not just his mark, upon his bondservants and totally enslave them. The U.S. black and white problem points directly to slaves and redemption and freedom and the mark of the Beast. The new invisible RFID ink brings us a step closer to 666. Most people will accept the concept of an invisible tattoo.
Man needs to be redeemed by Christ and set free from the bondage of sin that he may become a servant of God and righteousness. We then serve the Lord because we love Him – it’s an honor. We serve Him forever –“And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free: then his master shall being him before the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he will serve him forever” – (Ex.21:5,6). The door and door post point to the Passover Lamb’s blood that freed them from bondage in Egypt.
Have you been redeemed by the precious blood of Christ? Are you saved and born again through the Lord Jesus? If not, repent of your sins and by faith believe on Christ in your heart for forgiveness of sins and you will become a new creature in Christ. You will have your Jesus Jubilee – “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” You will be freed from the bondage of your sins and your cruel slave master Satan. You will of your own free will serve God in righteousness and love Him because He died for you. “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world that we might be saved through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins” – (I Jn.4:9,10).
When you are born again through Christ you are ‘born free’ – you are ‘free born.’ Absolutely nobody that is still in bondage to sin and have rejected Christ the Redeemer, will inherit eternal sonship and life. “Now we brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free” – (Gal.4:28-31). You must have the miracle birth – you must be born again of the Holy Spirit and be ‘free born.’ “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, ye must be born again” – (Jn.3:6,7).
If our nation does not repent of sin and turn back to Christ and righteousness, we will lose our liberty and go into bondage and become an imperial dictatorship ruled by Mr. 666 – the President-Antichrist.
