The Sign Of The ‘Anti-Christ’ And The ‘Mark Of The Devil’ Are Two Different Things
From my childhood on I have come across many people who thought/believe that the sign of the ‘Anti-Christ’ and the ‘Mark of the Devil’ are one and the same. There is no Biblical reasoning for this error in thought except for the fact that most Christians seldom open or study the Scriptures to find out what is so, or what is not so. I am over 60 yrs old now and I have studied the Scriptures since I was ten and I have learned many things about truth in this time. I am not here to argue with anyone, I am simply going to state to you what I believe to be God’s truths concerning this matter, you can believe what you wish, I am simply trying to do my duty as a servant of God. I am a person who enjoys reading historical and religious documents whether they be from secular Christian authors or writers with a narrow view-point concerning religion and world events caused by religion.
First let us look at ‘the mark of the Devil’ that Scripture speaks of. First we must understand that every government on earth is not ‘holy’, they are man-made and man by nature is carnal, not Godly. Scripture speaks of the ‘mark of the Devil’ being put into the head or the right hand of the people. What do you think this mark could be? Obviously it will be something that a person can’t just take off of themselves. What could this ‘thing’ be ? How could people be ‘marked’? Two thousand years ago I guess people could have been branded with an iron or even with a blade but in these times that we are living in technology has made ‘marking’ much simpler. It is my belief that this ‘mark’ will simply be a computer chip put in underneath the skin in the underside of the wrist (in Roman days the wrist was considered to be part of the hand). Most likely only a few people like government agents and military officers would have such chips put into the brain. You may say that this is a bunch of bull-s–t that no one would ever let the government do that to them, all that I can say to that is, really? When the government decides that they can not secure the money because of forgeries including State sponsored forgers like Iran and China? We all should know by now that our personal credit cards and the banks they are off of cannot protect our accounts just as the places we shop at cannot protect their own systems from hackers they cannot protect our information. Also it is obvious that the governments cannot protect our own borders as to whom is coming into the country so that employers can know who it is safe to hire or whom is not. You may say that you would never let that happen to you but when the government stops using and stops printing cash so that you must have the chip to be able to work, buy any food, pay your rent or mortgage or to even put gas in your car then you are going to have a problem. You will lose your home, car, job, and the ability to pay utilities or to ever buy something to eat, will you change your mind when you are living in a cardboard box under a bridge? If you can’t pay your taxes without the chip the government will simply take everything you ever thought you owned. Here in America I think that the identification for each person will be their social security number, but they could obviously come up with another number system to identify each of us with. Why would I call this event the mark of the Devil, if the Devil is the owner of the government…?
Now about ‘the sign of the anti-Christ’. In Scripture the sign of God is the number three as in the Trinity and the sign of man is the number six as in the sixth day God created man. The sign of the anti-Christ is noted as 666, this is not the mark of the Devil, it is the sign of three very powerful people who will be possessed by Demons who answer only to their boss Satan. These three people will come from different parts of the globe, one from the east (China) one from the center (above, north of the Holy Lands) meaning the European Union area and the third will come from the Americas to the west. These three will come after they uproot the ten nations/horns and consolidate their power into a tighter noose around the world’s population. After they have almost all power on the Earth ‘The’ anti-Christ which is Satan himself will rise up from below (the Temple Mount) and usurp the power of his three generals into his own lap. By this time almost all people who have refused the chip will either be dead or in hiding trying to exist each day hiding in caves and forests. Most all of the people who will flat-out refuse the chip will be devout Christians. Do you remember the play book of the U.S. government with the Indian people? Take their guns so they can’t defend themselves or feed themselves, put them into a small area then send in the troops and wipe them out. Scripture tells us that all of the Saints/believers would be wiped out if not for the second advent of Christ returning and sending Satan back to Hell. I believe that almost all of the American people including those who call themselves devout Christians will give in to getting the chips ‘mark of the Devil’ simply because they love having a roof over their heads and food to eat more than they love the Word of God (Jesus). If we love this life and the treasures of it more than God then we will lose our own Souls suffering ‘the second death’, forever separation from God when we are sent to live forever in the fires of Hell.
