The Mark of the Beast

What is the mark of the beast.

‘It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on 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.’ Revelation 13;16-18

If anyone is forced to have a mark in order to buy or sell, this is tyranny, which has happened many times in history. One could argue that the stars of David the jews were forced to wear in Nazi Germany were the mark of the beast. The number 666 has been associated with the pope. It is also associated with Solomon;

‘The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents.’ 1 Kings 10;14

Solomon typifies both Christ and Antichrist. During the later part of his reign, he became corrupt from many foreign marriages and immense wealth. He was overly harsh in taxation and on the laborers. This is like Satan; he desires control.

Right now, the powers that be are pushing for mandatory vaccination and a cashless society. Could these vaccines be the mark of the beast. Yes. But I don’t believe we’re at the full development of the antichrist yet. They may yet suffer a major setback. Time will tell.
