The Mark of the Beast
16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive (1) a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Note the condition given. Either or. Either one today is caused to receive the mark in their right hand, or one will receive it in their foreheads. It is not a double condition. For instance, whether a driver is t-boned or rear-ended, it is still an accident that must be reported.
The passage is less about us humans and more to do with the beast’s aggressive agenda, that he will cause all peoples to receive a mark. The Greek word here is Didomi, meaning as in giving a gift. For instance, you are mailed an invitation for applying for a new Visa card. You did not ask for it. It was mailed to you. But if you respond to the invitation to apply, then your response makes an action, and the action is you participate.
17And 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.
Note the legal language here. You activate the mark only if you buy or sell. Nowhere does it say here you are buying milk and bread. The item is not specified. We must find out from the context.
At one time, many speculate that it means a chip implant that will be used to open doors, or buy things like the chip on the VISA card does, etc.. Those were all just reminders to us that something more sinister is coming using the same concept.
True believers who are tight with the Holy Spirit, who are one in Christ, will have no interest buying or selling this item by trading with the antichrist. We rest assured that we as believers will not buy or sell. Therefore, no one will activate that “mark” which was given (Didomi).
18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Need to survive transhumanism and pharmakeia
Another example to help us understand the mark.
Pier Imports is having a 20% sale this week. The commercial says “you will save money”.
No I won’t because I am not buying and selling. Before the weekend I have $1,000 savings. After the weekend, my $1,000 savings is intact. All because I did not go “save any money” at Pier One Imports.
It is an analogy. There may be a sale but I am not their customer.
The devil may want to trade with you as he did with Jesus in Luke 4, he thinks he got the goods lolo. He does not for me. I got everything I NEED to eternity. I have received Jesus (John 1|12) and hence sonship in Father’s kingdom.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God’s children, to those who believe in his name:
We all have a birthright as humans, well except for the nephilim today. They don’t. The nephilim are not blessed. They are not happy. They are jealous. They are the ones who want to ruin the party. They parade in the streets protesting the human birthright. They want women to kill their own by persuading them to commit murder.
If you are not interested in “the devil’s sale”, your and my birthrights as humans are intact. Those who bite the bait of the devil will sell their human birthright and buy what the devil offers in a prolonged existence that is not Life. Imagine an earth where Eve told the devil to get lost. “Oh, I am not that interested. Goodby.”
The old devil copies with his version of John 10|10. “I come to give them life.”
John 10:10 The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.
Sonship in Christ
I am not interested in trading with the devil. I got the only right I desire.
I have received Christ. In Christ, I am smarter than Eve. I am already an adopted son of the eternal God. God says I will have eternal life. I believe Him. John 1,
9That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
In Christ I have Sonship. I don’t need gene therapy to fight cancer by DNA changes. I won’t sell my gender to go outside of the male/female assignment at birth. Humans are created to Genesis 1|26, male or female. If a being is neither gender they have been messed with. Kids today experiment with sameness sex. They are clueless. Many join the military just to get a free sex reassignment. Ima watching them. They sold out.
Genesis 1:26 God said, “Let us make man in 👉🏼our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the sky, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
Genesis 1:27 God created man in his own image. In God’s image he created him;
👉🏼 male and 👉🏼female he created 👉🏼them.
My human birthright qualifies me for the Gospel of redemption offered by Christ. Did you reach out to receive His offer?
A promise was issued to man in Genesis 3. The seeds of man shall be saved.
Esau Sold Out
Esau did not “lose” his birthright. Esau willingly sold his birthright. He told his father when he came to only after he realized that bowl of broth was temporary. His body was replenished but his soul kept on hungering. Patients, ask yourselves, will your soul be satisfied by having your body parts healed in this life? What are you selling?
Let us not despise our birthright to God in His redemption as Esau despised his birthright. For Jacob could only pass his blessings to one of his two sons.
29One day, while Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the field and was famished.30He said to Jacob, “Let me eat some of that red stew, for I am famished.” (That is why he was also called Edom.d )
31“First sell me your birthright,” Jacob replied.
32“Look,” said Esau, “I am about to die, so what good is a birthright to me?”
33“Swear to me first,” Jacob said.
So Esau swore to Jacob and sold him the birthright. 34Then Jacob gave some bread and lentil stew to Esau; he ate and drank, and then got up and went away. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
Note, Esau gained by taking the bread and stew. He traded his birthright. He did not have it stolen. So will it be today for those who sell their number of a man (“666”) to the devil in exchange for something that won’t last.
Today many human beings also give in to evil desires for a quick fix. They sold their birthright in exchange of what they want to be in its stead. So they trade it with the master of trade. Words of Christ in red.
Ezekiel 28:16 By 👉🏼the abundance of your traffic👈🏼 they filled the midst of you with violence, and you have sinned: therefore I have cast you as profane out of the mountain of God; and I have destroyed you, covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
The Speaker of the passage above told satan to his face when he tried to trade with Him.
Luke 4:6 The devil said to him, “I will give you all this authority, and their glory, for it has been delivered to me; and I give it to whomever I want.
Luke 4:7 If you therefore will worship before me, it will all be yours.”
Luke 4:8 Jesus answered him, “Get behind me Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'”
I am with Jesus.
In a transaction with the devil the human is both the seller (birthright) and the buyer (a counterfeit). Once the transaction is completed it is done.
Esau sailed an irrevocable course. He toyed with his birthright and he only found out afterwards. But I am warning the world today. Do not despise your birthright.
Genesis 27:38 Esau said to his father, “Have you but one blessing, my father? Bless me, even me also, my father.” Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.
Those today who survive the NWO and all the wiles of the powers that are shaken and all the stars that come down will live to the moment of resurrection at His Appearance.
Jesus is coming.
The stars are the fallen angels in the Tribulation. The powers are a combination of the fallen angels (alien of you will) and their children the demons.
Luke 21:25 There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars; and on the earth anxiety of nations, in perplexity for the roaring of the sea and the waves;
Luke 21:26 men fainting for fear, and for expectation of the things which are coming on the world: for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
I will not buy or sell what my Lord gave me to steward. I will give a faithful account to Him on that day.
Shut the front door 🚪
Revelation 13:16 He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, to be given a mark on their right hand, or on their forehead;
Revelation 13:17 and that no one would be able to buy or to sell, unless he has that mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name.
All of us in America already have “been caused” to be given a number, scan code, bar code, a face recognition number etc. The forehead means our image and photo ID, digitized as a file on a database. Due to the iniquity of frauds in the Tribulation digital security measures are being forced upon us all. 9/11 2001 was a landmark trigger.
The right hand must be interpreted from the Hebraic sense of “power” or “the hollow of the hand”. In Greek the manuscript uses Khire. The mark imposed in the right hand means you have surrendered “your power” to satan. Would you establish a “living will” with satan for when you are hospitalized? A living will is an advance healthcare directive, also known as an advance health directive, personal directive, advance directive, medical directive or advance decision, is a legal document in which a person specifies what actions will be taken once the patient is no longer in a position to give consent to a recommended treatment for his condition. A right of attorney is passed to a second person to make that decision, or that the patient pre-determines the action.
Buying and selling with the devil is exactly like making the devil your power of attorney.
It Is Not “Just Procreation”
The present age worldview, which is the product of casual recreational hook-ups and fornication, views marriage as just an unholy union. Many view the only purpose of marriage as just procreation. But the Bible says otherwise. The Bible says marriage is holy to God. It is our lifelong lesson to learn about faithfully where nothing else will affect us and challenge us in this area as in a marriage.
Genesis 9:7 Be fruitful, and multiply. Bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply in it.” God established a covenant with Noah.
This is the covenant “with many”.
Daniel 9:27 He shall confirm a covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease; and on the wing of abominations [shall come] one who makes desolate; and even to the full end, and that determined, shall [wrath] be poured out on the desolate.
Bad news to those who have already budged by becoming a transhuman. Their right hand has been branded by his mark. The individual has given the devil a power of attorney for eternity. This is how the devil owns souls. The chip implant may just be the traitor’s “circumcision” as a sign. But that is just a sign of a thing that has already been put on ice. By itself the wrist implant does not destroy your soul.
I am not activating my human birthright in my male gender, my face digitization and my DNA 🧬 coding to buy or sell any thing. I am born a man and I will die a man.
666 number of a man
Revelation 13:17 and that no one would be able to buy or to sell, unless he has that mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name.
Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is six hundred sixty-six.
The adversary has been damned. But he wants company in hell from willing parties. It is like that kid in school. Everybody knows he is trouble. So he forms a gang and recruits rebels to his cause. The transaction with the mark is irreversible.
Didómi Is Receive
Revelation 14:9 Another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a great voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead, or on his hand,
This verse clarified and defined this verse.
Revelation 13:16 He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, 👉🏼to be given a mark on their right hand, or on their forehead;
One says “caused to be given”, here it says “receives”. Therefore we will refuse to receive what is offered to us. The Greek word for give is didómi, which means a gift. Here is an example from CS Lewis.
Take this example. The witch in Narnia gives Edmund Turkish Delights to drug the kid. Edmund did not have to take it. CS Lewis wrote the Chronicles Of Narnia and introduced to the world the character of Edmund. He met with the Queen. Both figures are typology figures of buying and selling.
At first Edmund tried to remember that it is rude to speak with one’s mouth full, but soon he forgot about this and thought only of trying to shovel down as much Turkish Delight as he could, and the more he ate the more he wanted to eat, and he never asked himself why the Queen should be so inquisitive. Turkish Delight (or Lokum) is a sweet, made with starch and powdered sugar. It is often flavored with rosewater or lemon. It was Edmund Pevensie’s favorite sweet, and a magical (enchanted) version of it was offered to him by The White Witch. Today, many platforms offer an enchanted version of the Bible. And there is a big, big following. And just like in Narnia, Edmund turned into a traitor, so today many who think they are made “Christians” spread a false gospel that is devoid of repentance. They rather are interested in making their lives “better” than before by having a foot in Church and the other foot in the world. This is not acceptable. God is jealous of His people. Either He will have all of you or none of you.
The White Witch used Edmund’s craving, or hunger, for the magical Turkish delight to get him to betray his family, or put them in danger for his own benefit, by bringing them to her.
The word in Revelation 14 for receive or take is lambano. It means – to take with the hand, lay hold of, any person or thing in order to use it; to take up a thing to be carried. In our example, the willing action was shown by Edmund. He craved for the drug from the White Witch.
Edmund took the candy. He put it in his mouth.
We will refuse to take it to use it. We are not the “Edmunds”.
What do we “keep”? Hold on to the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Everyone who complies will not even remotely toy with selling to the devil.
Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
It took me 30 odd years to be revealed this interpretation. Praise Adonai praise my Ga’al haDahm (my Lord my Redeemer).
I keep my qualifications.
My human birthrights, which I keep, has anther perk. For Adam disobeyed God and his body died, those of us who are born after born as his seed will also perish. But Christ came that none “need to perish” if we follow Jesus.
I shall hereby quote the good news followed by “the bad news” from Jesus. John 3,
15that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life.
16For God so loved the world that He gave His one and onlyc Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. 18Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
19And this is the verdict: The Light has come into the world, but men loved the darkness rather than the Light, because their deeds were evil.
Who shall love “darkness”?
The world does. Can a “Christian” love darkness? The “churchgoer” may or may not. But a true follower who obeys the voice of the Chief Shepherd shall not love darkness. Jesus speaks this, turn to John 8.
12Once again, Jesus spoke to the people and said,
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.”
My living body will then experience a quick change to the body of immortality.
1 Corinthians 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
In this attitude we have nothing to lose today. Just serve the Lord.
People who have pain, cancer, missing limbs, parts, who are believers who refuse to buy and sell birthrights, will enter into glory.
1 Corinthians 15:54 But when this corruptible will have put on incorruption, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then what is written will happen: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
Saints of God, endure to the end. There is nothing to worry about.
