BULLSEYE!
ACCURATE BIBLE KNOWLEDGE!

QUESTION:  WHERE WILL THE MARK BE PLACED?

ANSWER: “THREE PLACES – IN THE RIGHT HAND, IN THE FOREHEAD OR UPON THE FOREHEAD”

EXPLANATION

In the Book of Revelation in the Authorized King James Bible, there are three phrases referring to the position of the beast’s mark - “… in their right hand … in their foreheads…” (Rev 13:16) and “… upon their foreheads…” (Rev 20:4).

WHAT’S WRONG WITH HAVING A MARK “IN” OR “UPON” YOUR BODY ANYWAY?

A reading of the Levitical laws, reveals that any marking upon the body or incisions in the body, are both condemned by God.

“Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.” (Leviticus 19:28).

Right here God expresses his opinion about the future Tribulation ‘chip’ (mark) that could go into the flesh and any ‘tattoo’ or mark that could be placed upon the body.

BUT GOD’S LEVITICIAL LAWS DON’T APPLY TO US NOW DO THEY?

No they don’t, but we are to keep in mind that the seven year Tribulation is Daniel’s 70th week and therefore a Jewish dispensation.

While ‘to believe’ is the only necessary criteria to be saved (Rom 10:9) in the present church age, God’s laws come to prominence in the Tribulation, along with the attendant temple blood sacrifices.

WHY THE RIGHT HAND?

It’s simply Satan’s way of mocking Christ as Christ now sits on the right hand of God the Father in heaven (Heb 1:3).

FOREHEADS AND HANDS ARE GOD’S

And it shall be upon Aaron's forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his forehead, that they may be accepted before the LORD. Exodus 28:38

And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. Revelation 14:1

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Revelation 20:4

And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. Revelation 22:4

THE BEATLES POP GROUP

The Beatles in the 1960’s were some of the first to popularize Hinduism in the West. They jumped off the plane having been to India with the full Hindu dress and marks in their foreheads. This got the general population warmed up to the idea of wearing a mark on the forehead, was a sign of ‘great’ spirituality.

Hindus openly defy God with a mark on their forehead which is reserved exclusively for the Lord Jesus Christ. By the way, their mark is not the mark of the beast yet, this comes in the tribulation, but they are a nation that would be ripe for taking the mark when it comes.

The soldiers put nails through Christ’s hands and had thorns pressed into Christ’s forehead to remind us of the importance of these places of the body.

With Christ’s crucifixion, it seemed that Satan had won and was again showing the world that he was mocking Christ, but in fact, it was God allowing this all to happen.

God the Father was making Christ a curse for us.

WHAT FORM COULD THE MARK TAKE?

Just as God used ‘ink’ from a writer’s inkhorn to “…set a mark upon the foreheads of the men (Jews)…” (Ezek9:4) for protection, the mark of the beast (some indelible ink,  lasered tattoo or microchip) placed upon the foreheads could do the same – but in this case it will be for damnation.

The mark placed “in “or upon” a person will not allow them to buy and sell.

Similar to our own situation today, we can see why an electronic chip would be needed for buying and selling, whereas an electronic mark or ink tattoo, will be a sufficient act for God to damn a person to the lake of fire.

We can see the preview of the mark before the Tribulation, with the checking in apps needed on Smart Phones.

By the way … isn’t that a great name to fool people … Smart phone! “I must be smart .. I gotta Smart Phone!”

WHAT ACTIONS WILL TAKE YOU TO THE LAKE OF FIRE?

Rev 20:4 

WHAT FORM COULD THE IMAGE TAKE?

Just as Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold to be worshipped (Dan 3:1,5), the antichrist beast will have a replica made of himself albeit in the form of a man-like statue or a lion with wings or some other animal symbol.

A JUST REWARD

Those taking the mark in their foreheads or in their hands, have God’s special torment reserved for them.

It must be remembered though …
1. God is not in the business of torture, retribution or payback.
2. These people have worked for it and earned it … a just recompence (Heb 2:2).

 THE END RESULT OF RECEIVING THE MARK

 IS THERE A POSITIVE FOR TAKING THE MARK?

A ‘positive’ of receiving the mark of the beast “in” you, is that you will be able to eat for the duration of the Tribulation, but the negative after that will be the most devastating, excruciating and most painful form of the wrath of God in hell (Rev 14:9-10).

BUT HOW COULD ANYONE TAKE THE MARK “IN” OR “UPON” THE BODY KNOWING THE CONSEQUENCES?

 There will be three groups:

1.  The poor desperate unfortunates – the bottom third

2.  The group in the middle – they always listen to the government – the middle third

3.  The arrogant, sodomite-promoting, rebellious, new-age indoctrinated, self-esteemed, “I-am-God” effeminates … the ‘top’? third

Incredible isn’t it! Just as Eve in all her purity and innocence was deceived (1Ti 2:14), it’s not hard to see how depraved, sinful, deluded reprobates will more readily disobey and oppose God.

ONE THIRD OF PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY MADE UP THEIR MINDS

There will be those who have had their minds and imaginations irreparably altered and transformed by believing the lies of “…great wonders …” and “…fire come down from heaven … in the sight of men…” and “…miracles…”.

They will have seen miraculous life given to an inanimate idol and “…unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should … speak…” (Rev 13:13-15).

There will be those who are the ‘blind with rage’ tribulation reprobates and will be led by the god of this world (2Cor 4:4) to choose the ‘seemingly’ superior “…God of forces…” (Dan 11:38) with his miracles, which will seemingly be more loving that a ranting angel in heaven (Rev14:6,9) warning against receiving the mark.

KNOWING THE TERROR OF THE LORD

You can only shake your head as you picture these stem-celled infused ‘I-will-live-forevers’; along with the sodomite-promoting brainwashed new-agers; plus the psychologised human “avartars”, pitting their puny dark arts not against “the Sovereign Lord” (New King James Version) but “…the Almighty God…” (Gen17:1).

Note: The rubbish “bible” versions (New King James Version) have substituted the weaker words of “sovereign” and “the Sovereign Lord” for the Almighty God.

PEOPLE WILL BE WARNED

However God will send an angel to circle the earth saying

You see, an angel from God will have previously flown “…in the midst of heaven…” (Rev 14:6) to directly and explicitly warn all men everywhere, that those who receive the mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of Godshall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:” (Rev 14:9-10).

GOD MADE CHRIST A CURSE FOR US

Yes, just as the soldiers put nails through Christ’s hands and had thorns pressed into Christ’s forehead …

 
THOSE WHO WILL HAVE THE MARK

IN THEIR HANDS,

OR IN OR UPON THEIR FOREHEADS

WILL ALSO BE CURSED.
