Mark Of The Beast On Forehead Bible Verse

mark of the beast branding on the forehead

The mark of the beast on forehead Bible verse is in Revelation 13:16-18: It says, “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”

That is the mark that the beast or the Antichrist will give to people living on earth during his reign.

The mark will enable him to have total control over those who receive it so that he can deceive them and fully establish his authority upon their souls.

Take note that the Bible passage above says the beast will force people of all ages, sex, and backgrounds to receive the mark. It is not optional but compulsory.

This is because, unlike God who will give us free will to choose whether to follow Him or not, Satan wants to force people to follow him to his final destination which is hell fire.

He wants to use all means to achieve that

 He knows that some people who have heard about the mark from the Bible would want to reject it, hence he would force everybody to receive it or face serious punishment they will not be able to resist.

Who Is The Antichrist?

In 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, the Bible gives an insight into who the Antichrist is and what he represents. It states, “Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.”

This evil personality will emerge in one of the problematic political systems of the world, and by deceit and evil power,   takes over and becomes a world leader.

Through his evil influence, he would provide solutions to many of the problems in the world that man has not been able to solve. That will make many people see him as a god and worship him as such.

Ultimately the coming of the Antichrist is part of God’s judgment upon our unrepentant world. The time would be during the Great Tribulation.

At that time, all the saints on earth and those who truly belonged to God would have been taken away to heaven through the rapture.

That will pave the way for God to fully release His judgment on the earth. The Antichrist or the beast is one of these judgments.

Is Covid19 The Mark Of The Beast?

Over the ages, people have tried to interpret the mark of the beast by whatever they see as a source of death that claims many lives.

They have also linked it with the old Catholic church system, and the old Roman empire.

Recently during the upsurge of covid-19, an epidemic that locked the whole world down, some people quickly concluded it is the mark of the beast.

There is no correlation between what is described as the mark of the beast in the Bible and the coronavirus. Many people like to come up with their theories, and unfortunately, some gullible people will believe them and spread the lies to others.

What is even worse is that some people believe that the vaccines for coronavirus are the mark of the beast.

This has made some people campaign against taking them, and many have gone ahead to reject them based on that lie.

Both scientists and religious leaders have agreed based on the evidence gathered in their fields that neither coronavirus, nor the vaccines, nor the vaccines passport are the mark.

What Happens When We Refuse The Mark Of The Beast

Read the book of Revelation 13:16-18 above

 Whoever does not take the mark while it is being given can neither buy nor sell.

In our world system, you are either a buyer or a seller. Hardly does a day pass without us buying or selling one thing or the other.

Even if you stock your house with supplies of what you would need, you will eventually exhaust them and want to get more.

What this implies is that through his deceit the Antichrist will be able to force everybody to take the mark.

According to the Bible verse, the mark of the beast will be on the forehead, where it can be easily seen or scanned by necessary equipment anytime people want to buy or sell whether online or from the local store.

Will Christians Take The Mark Of The Beast?

The mark is not for Christians. It is the mark of the Antichrist, the personality that opposes anything godly.

It is a mark that symbolizes the highest form of rebellion and idolatry against God. That is the reason why the Bible verse above says it calls for wisdom.

We must be wise and fully knowledgeable so that we don’t fall victim as a result of ignorance. The Bible says “my people perish because of lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6.

Christians are not supposed to be on earth according to God’s program. This is because God would have taken them off the earth’s surface.

The only Christians that may be on earth and partake of this evil are those who would be left behind because they could not meet the conditions for the rapture.

Such Christians would feel the pain most because they know all the while that it will happen. They have been saved and have the full opportunity to escape it, but they allow themselves to be dragged into it because they were disobedient.

This is why we need to prepare ourselves now. The time we have is now. We must be sober and vigilant. Get ready for the second coming of Christ and ensure that we don’t miss the rapture.

The Lord had warned that He is coming like a thief in the night. Only those who are ready will be worthy to go with Him. Remember the story of the 10 virgins in the Bible. Matthew 25:1-13.

If you are yet to surrender your life to Christ, or you are still toying with sin. It is time to decide to stop it. The grace of God will not abide forever. Now that it is still available take it and get out before it is too late.

Could A Smartphone Be The Mark Of The Beast In The Bible?

Some people hold to believe that the smartphone is the mark of the beast. This is because they see the correlation between the way smartphones are controlling people and what the Antichrist will do with his mark on people on earth.

No evidence from the Bible can prove this to be right. More so, the smartphone is not a device that forces people to use them.

Though there is a tendency of getting hooked to it, we all determine how we will use phones based on our personal preferences.

The Bible does not tell us what the mark will look like. We don’t even know whether it is going to be a modern device like a phone or not.

But it did say the mark will be put on people’s foreheads or their right hands. That can’t possibly be smartphones, at least not the ones we are using now.

Is The Mark Of The Beast Out Now

People have asked, “How do I know if I have received the mark of the beast?”

The mark of the beast is not yet out

 Though people have been insinuating that it is out and it is in form of a microchip that will be planted on people’s foreheads.

That might be the way the mark will be given out, but the time for it is not yet. According to God’s timetable, the elect must first leave before that will take place.

God plan it that way so that no child of His would take the mark either by mistake or ignorance.

What it means is that we don’t need to bother ourselves about how the mark will be administered. We don’t need to panic and get worried as some people are doing,  God knows how to protect and deliver those who belong to Him.

When He sent the angel of death to the land of Egypt to kill their firstborns. He perfectly separated the Israelites from the Egyptians to the point that the angel did not make mistake in killing an Israelite. He can do it again,.and more than that too.

What Does THE MARK Look Like?

People have tried to describe the mark in various ways. Apart from calling it the Roman empire and Catholic church systems, they liken it to a tattoo-like mark on the body while some have likened it to electronic devices like 5G, microchips, and smartphones.

Apart from telling us the number of the mark, the Bible did not say anything about the form it will take. That means God does not want us to search unnecessarily for it.

The secret things belong to God, but those things that are revealed belong to us and our children. If God hides something no one can find it no matter how hard we try.

God hid Elijah during the time of the famine, Ahab and his soldiers searched for him throughout the land but they could not find him until Elijah decided to show himself to the king.

There will still be rumors and speculations about the mark, people will still come up with more interpretations about it. What should bother us is how we can avoid it. How we can escape being one of the victims of the Antichrist?

Since it is God that reveals the source of the mark, what He says about it is what we need to follow. We should strive hard to live holly and be among the saints that will escape through the rapture. That is the only guaranteed solution that will not bring any regret or sorrow.
