What is the mark of the beast and the meaning of the number 666?

Written by Lee Stevenson, sorry I am a lousy editor.

Much of Revelations is in signs. So much of revelation is in signs or symbols that we need to have knowledge of the meanings in order to understand what they mean. The bible even said the meaning of those signs would not be revealed until the last days. It is very important to know what this mark is and how we could avoid receiving the mark because those who receive the mark will be destroyed , so would loose the free gift of eternal life. The beast and kings of the earth will join together towards a goal of setting up a one world system or order of doing things in an attempt to completely remove God from peoples lives in an attempt to replace God’s rightful place and that is to rule over the earth and guide man. So it is very important we learn to identify the beast and it’s allies so we do not get deceived into receiving the mark. We have to keep in mind Satan’s attacks are not always obvious they are usually subtle and he uses either ignorance of God’s laws or a lack of faith to lure others into doing his will. We also need to learn to identify the harlot also known as Babylon the great in Revelations because God will put it into the beast and it’s allies to destroy the harlot and those who are a part of this spiritual prostitution will suffer the same fate as the harlot when God puts it into the beast and it’s allies to destroy the harlot. Then those who sided with the beast instead of God will be destroyed.

Since Revelation is a book of signs we need to know how to find those signs and what those signs represent. These signs have been used throughout the bible. Those signs reveal to us the meaning of the signs in Revelations and also helps us determine which parts of Revelation are signs and which parts are literal.

(Revelation 1:1-3) 1 A revelation by Jesus Christ, which God gave him, to show his slaves the things that must shortly take place. And he sent his angel and presented it in signs through him to his slave John, 2 who bore witness to the word God gave and to the witness Jesus Christ gave, yes, to all the things he saw. 3 Happy is the one who reads aloud and those who hear the words of this prophecy and who observe the things written in it, for the appointed time is near.

(Revelation 19:19-21) 19 And I saw the wild beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the one seated on the horse and against his army. 20 And the wild beast was caught, and along with it the false prophet that performed in front of it the signs with which he misled those who received the mark of the wild beast and those who worship its image. While still alive, they both were hurled into the fiery lake that burns with sulfur. 21 But the rest were killed off with the long sword that proceeded out of the mouth of the one seated on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.

(Revelation 17:15-18) 15 He said to me: “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is sitting, mean peoples and crowds and nations and tongues. 16 And the ten horns that you saw and the wild beast, these will hate the prostitute and will make her devastated and naked, and they will eat up her flesh and completely burn her with fire. 17 For God put it into their hearts to carry out his thought, yes, to carry out their one thought by giving their kingdom to the wild beast, until the words of God will have been accomplished. 18 And the woman whom you saw means the great city that has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.”

(Revelation 19:19-21) 19 And I saw the wild beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the one seated on the horse and against his army. 20 And the wild beast was caught, and along with it the false prophet that performed in front of it the signs with which he misled those who received the mark of the wild beast and those who worship its image. While still alive, they both were hurled into the fiery lake that burns with sulfur. 21 But the rest were killed off with the long sword that proceeded out of the mouth of the one seated on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.

God had the ones desiring righteousness marked in the past and he is figuratively marking his people now. The difference between those who chose God’s side and those who did not would become very clear. Those who chose God’s side would detest the lack of faith , loyalty and obedience to God. These would include the 144,000 bought from the earth who will rule with Christ and the other sheep who walk through the great tribulation and dwell on the earth. Most know that 666 is a symbol of the mark of the beast. Keep in mind it is a symbol and not a literal mark. This is why it is called a mans mark. So we have to discern what this symbol means and how a person who has the mark is identified. One clue is these ones will still be allowed to buy sell and trade while those who did not receive the mark will not be permitted to.

(Ezekiel 9:3, 4) . . .. 4 Jehovah said to him: “Go through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who are sighing and groaning over all the detestable things that are being done in the city.”

(Psalm 119:53) I am seized with burning rage because of the wicked, Who forsake your law.

(2 Peter 2:7, 8) And he rescued righteous Lot, who was greatly distressed by the brazen conduct of the lawless people— 8 for day after day that righteous man was tormenting his righteous soul over the lawless deeds that he saw and heard while dwelling among them.

(Revelation 14:1-5) 14 Then I saw, and look! the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who have his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads. 2 I heard a sound coming out of heaven like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder; and the sound that I heard was like singers who accompany themselves by playing on their harps. 3 And they are singing what seems to be a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders, and no one was able to master that song except the 144,000, who have been bought from the earth. 4 These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins. These are the ones who keep following the Lamb no matter where he goes. These were bought from among mankind as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb, 5 and no deceit was found in their mouths; they are without blemish. . .

(John 10:16) 16 “And I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; those too I must bring in, and they will listen to my voice, and they will become one flock, one shepherd. . .

Those who oppose God are being marked now and will be marked on a much bigger scale very soon and it will become more obvious as they bring down false worship. Those who refuse the mark will not be allowed to buy sell or trade.

(Revelation 13:16-18) 16 It puts under compulsion all people—the small and the great, the rich and the poor, the free and the slaves—that these should be marked on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and that nobody can buy or sell except a person having the mark, the name of the wild beast or the number of its name. 18 This is where it calls for wisdom: Let the one who has insight calculate the number of the wild beast, for it is a man’s number, and its number is 666.

(Revelations 13:3,16,17  Revelation 14:9,10 .

  If you read Revelations 13 and 14:1  you will see that the mark is the name of something in a position of authority. A human government. It will have authority over the whole earth. The number represents a name.  The number seven represents fullness or completeness in the bible. For example God completed the earth on the seventh day. In Matthew 18:22 Jesus emphasized the importance of forgiving someone completely by stating seventy seven times we must forgive someone. So by having two sevens side by side it emphasizes how complete the forgiveness must be. If the number 6 is not reaching the mark then it represents the incompleteness of that Government. Since we are imperfect humans then our rule cannot be perfect  like a government set up by God. So the number 666 represents a government that will have authority over the whole earth, it will be a human government that is trying to replace God’s right to rule over man. So just like Adam and Eve’s rebellion in the garden of Eden when they thought we didn’t need God this will be the ultimate rebellion.

Revelations 19:1 Tells us that the beast and those who received the mark will be cast into the lake of fire.

In Deuteronomy we get and idea of how God’s people are marked. They not only read God’s word but they live his word. They figuratively write them on their hearts. In other words God’s word would guide all they do. So they would stand out from those who do not have God’s word written on their hearts.

(Deuteronomy 11:18-21) 18 “You must impress these words of mine on your heart and your soul and bind them as a reminder on your hand, and they should be like a headband on your forehead. 19 Teach them to your children, speaking about them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road and when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, 21 so that you and your sons may live long in the land that Jehovah swore to give to your forefathers, for as long as the heavens are over the earth.

So those who put their faith in this world wide political organization or this one world order instead of God will have the figurative mark. Also those who oppose true worship, faith and obedience to God will have the figurative mark. Just as it was obvious in times past who God’s enemies were and who were faithful and trusted God in times past. They would try to induce fear of man and try to get God’s people to bow down to human governments or rulers instead of God. The bible tells us we are to obey God over man and we are to bow to no man. Many do not realize nationalism is an act of worship. Only this nationalism would be on a world wide scale and they would be giving their trust and honor to the beast. And those who do not honor the beast they would try to kill. If you notice the harlot which is false religion is mentioned as empowering the beast. So false religion plays a huge part in helping to establish the one world order that will soon occur which is the beast mentioned in the bible. The bible warns us to get out of her.

(Exodus 20:4-6) 4 “You must not make for yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth. 5 You must not bow down to them nor be enticed to serve them, for I, Jehovah your God, am a God who requires exclusive devotion, bringing punishment for the error of fathers upon sons, upon the third generation and upon the fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing loyal love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments.

(1 Chronicles 20:6, 7) 6 War broke out yet again at Gath, where there was a man of extraordinary size, with 6 fingers on each hand and 6 toes on each foot, 24 in all; and he too was a descendant of the Rephʹa·im. 7 He kept taunting Israel. So Jonʹa·than the son of Shimʹe·a, David’s brother, struck him down.

(Daniel 3:1, 2) 3 Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar the king made an image of gold that was 60 cubits high and 6 cubits wide. He set it up on the plain of Duʹra in the province of Babylon. 2 Then King Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar sent word to assemble the satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates, and all the administrators of the provinces to come to the inauguration of the image that King Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar had set up.

(Daniel 3:3-7) 3 So the satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates, and all the administrators of the provinces assembled for the inauguration of the image that King Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar had set up. And they stood in front of the image that Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar had set up. 4 The herald loudly proclaimed: “You are commanded, O peoples, nations, and language groups, 5 that when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, zither, triangular harp, stringed instrument, bagpipe, and all the other musical instruments, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar has set up. 6 Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into the burning fiery furnace.” 7 So when all the peoples heard the sound of the horn, pipe, zither, triangular harp, stringed instrument, and all the other musical instruments, all the peoples, nations, and language groups fell down and worshipped the image of gold that King Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar had set up.

(Daniel 3:15-18) 15 Now when you hear the sound of the horn, the pipe, the zither, the triangular harp, the stringed instrument, the bagpipe, and all the other musical instruments, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image that I have made, fine. But if you refuse to worship, you will immediately be thrown into the burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who can rescue you out of my hands?” 16 Shaʹdrach, Meʹshach, and A·bedʹne·go answered the king: “O Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If it must be, our God whom we serve is able to rescue us from the burning fiery furnace, O king, and to rescue us from your hand. 18 But even if he does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold that you have set up.”

(Revelation 18:4-8) 4 And I heard another voice out of heaven say: “Get out of her, my people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins, and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues. 5 For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven, and God has called her acts of injustice to mind. 6 Repay her in the way she treated others, yes, pay her back double for the things she has done; in the cup she has mixed, mix a double portion for her. 7 To the extent that she glorified herself and lived in shameless luxury, to that extent give her torment and mourning. For she keeps saying in her heart: ‘I sit as queen, and I am not a widow, and I will never see mourning.’ 8 That is why in one day her plagues will come, death and mourning and famine, and she will be completely burned with fire, because Jehovah God, who judged her, is strong. . .

(Jeremiah 51:44-46) 44 I will turn my attention to Bel in Babylon, And I will take out of his mouth what he has swallowed. To him nations will stream no more, And the wall of Babylon will fall. 45 Get out of her midst, my people! Escape for your lives from the burning anger of Jehovah! 46 Do not be fainthearted or afraid about the report to be heard in the land. In one year the report will come, And the next year another report, Of violence in the land and of ruler against ruler.

We know the beast is a world wide political figure because it has authority over people of the whole earth. This beast would rise from the sea. Since Revelation is a book of sign we should learn what the meaning of sea is in terms of it’s symbolism. The beast combines some of the features of the beast in Daniel and aspects of that beast are political figures.

(Revelation 13:1-8) 13 And it stood still on the sand of the sea. And I saw a wild beast ascending out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, and on its horns ten diadems, but on its heads blasphemous names. 2 Now the wild beast that I saw was like a leopard, but its feet were like those of a bear, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. And the dragon gave to the beast its power and its throne and great authority. 3 I saw that one of its heads seemed to have been fatally wounded, but its mortal wound had been healed, and all the earth followed the wild beast with admiration. 4 And they worshipped the dragon because it gave the authority to the wild beast, and they worshipped the wild beast with the words: “Who is like the wild beast, and who can do battle with it?” 5 It was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and it was given authority to act for 42 months. 6 And it opened its mouth in blasphemies against God to blaspheme his name and his dwelling place, even those residing in heaven. 7 It was permitted to wage war with the holy ones and conquer them, and it was given authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. 8 And all those who dwell on the earth will worship it. From the founding of the world, not one of their names has been written in the scroll of life of the Lamb who was slaughtered.

(Daniel 7:17-22) 17 “‘These huge beasts, four in number, are four kings who will stand up from the earth. 18 But the holy ones of the Supreme One will receive the kingdom, and they will possess the kingdom forever, yes, forever and ever.’ 19 “Then I wanted to know more about the fourth beast, which was different from all the others; it was extraordinarily fearsome, with iron teeth and copper claws, and it was devouring and crushing, and trampling down what was left with its feet; 20 and about the ten horns on its head, and the other horn that came up and before which three fell, the horn that had eyes and a mouth speaking arrogantly and whose appearance was bigger than that of the others. 21 “I kept watching as that horn made war on the holy ones, and it was prevailing against them, 22 until the Ancient of Days came and judgment was rendered in favor of the holy ones of the Supreme One, and the appointed time arrived for the holy ones to take possession of the kingdom.

Revelations gives us a hint when it states the waters we see means peoples, nations and tongues. So the beast will rise up from the people. Why does the bible refer to the peoples as the sea? We get a clue in Isaiah when God compares the wicked to the sea. This is why it is very important to be no part of the world especially when the wold tries to force people to bow to the beast in opposition to God.

(Revelation 17:15-18) 15 He said to me: “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is sitting, mean peoples and crowds and nations and tongues. 16 And the ten horns that you saw and the wild beast, these will hate the prostitute and will make her devastated and naked, and they will eat up her flesh and completely burn her with fire. 17 For God put it into their hearts to carry out his thought, yes, to carry out their one thought by giving their kingdom to the wild beast, until the words of God will have been accomplished. 18 And the woman whom you saw means the great city that has a kingdom over the kings of the earth. So the deaths in the sea are the people who die because they opposed God.

(Isaiah 57:20, 21) 20 “But the wicked are like the restless sea that cannot calm down, And its waters keep tossing up seaweed and mire. 21 There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.”

(Isaiah 17:12) 12 Listen! There is a commotion of many peoples, Who are as boisterous as the seas! There is an uproar of nations, Whose sound is like the roar of mighty waters!

(Revelation 16:3) 3 The second one poured out his bowl into the sea. And it became blood like that of a dead man, and every living creature died, yes, the things in the sea.

(1 John 4:4-6) 4 You originate with God, little children, and you have conquered them, because the one who is in union with you is greater than the one who is in union with the world. 5 They originate with the world; that is why they speak what originates with the world and the world listens to them. 6 We originate with God. Whoever comes to know God listens to us; whoever does not originate with God does not listen to us. By this we distinguish the inspired statement of truth from the inspired statement of error.

We need not fear because mans dominating man to our injury is about to end. The original lie in the garden of Eden that we did not need God will be thoroughly proven to be a lie by the beast. This one world system will be the ultimate rebellion against God in man believing we do not need God and this one world system will try to completely replace God’s rightful place to rule over man and to guide us. Humans can be corrupted and deceived God cannot be. Humans are like waves on the ocean indecisive and constantly changing their minds. God does not change. This is why we cannot trust any human but our trust should be with God and we should let his word guide all we do now more then ever.

We know Satan will give this beast it’s authority because the bible had warned us the whole world lies in the power of the wicked one. Man can be easily manipulated and deceived by Satan so it is easy for him to control world governments. We are living in the times when Jesus has sat on the thrown and Satan and the demons have been cast out of heaven. They know they have very little time left so they have a lot of anger. The bible warns us of this. We know Satan has heavy influence over the kingdoms of the earth because he offered those kingdoms to Jesus when he was tempting him in the wilderness. Man is imperfect so no matter how good our intentions may be we still would miss the mark and bring harm even unintentionally. We also lack the wisdom and foresight God has. This is why no matter how dire things may seem for us we need to let God guide our steps and not man. Those who receive the mark will honor the beast and give glory to the beast and obey the beast which those things are to be given to God. We are to respect authority figures but we are not to bow down to them or put them before God. Those who receive the mark of the beast will be ones who put their faith and hope in it and turn their backs on God. They will help to empower this one world system that they are establishing. We are told the good news of the heavenly kingdom would be preached in all the earth, then the end would come. So man would be have ample opportunity to learn how true peace , security and happiness would come about. Those who get deceived have no excuse. Because God has sent his messengers out to thoroughly give knowledge of the future hope those who are deceived into worshiping the beast have no excuse. It is very clear that religion will play a part in helping the beast establish it’s power. So we need to try our best not to put our faith in man and human governments put to patiently wait for Jesus to set matters straight. So it is very important now more then ever to put our faith in God and our king Jesus and not in the people and things of the world. Very soon all this will be gone and the new system will be here. There are two reasons that ignorance is not accepted as an excuse. One is because God gave us a conscience to guide us, and the other is because he has had a thorough witness given so if someone does not know what to do it is because they willfully chose to ignore God’s word and do what is right in their own eyes. Many may seem humble or nice but will refuse God because God judges the secret things of the heart and it is sharper then any two edged sword able to discern the deeper things and these ones usually do not want to give up those secret things. Those ones we must be much more cautious of and look at their fruits and not listen to their words.

(Ecclesiastes 8:9) 9 All of this I have seen, and I applied my heart to every work that has been done under the sun, during the time that man has dominated man to his harm.

(Micah 7:3-5)  3 Their hands are expert at doing what is bad; The prince is making demands, The judge asks for a reward, The prominent one makes known his desires, And they work it out together.  4 Their best one is like thorns, Their most upright one is worse than a thorn hedge. The day of your watchmen and of your reckoning will come. Now they will panic.  5 Do not put faith in your companion Or trust a close friend. Guard what you say to the one who lies in your embrace.

(Revelation 12:7-12) 7 And war broke out in heaven: Miʹcha·el and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them any longer in heaven. 9 So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. 10 I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God! 11 And they conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their witnessing, and they did not love their souls even in the face of death. 12 On this account be glad, you heavens and you who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.”

(Revelation 13:1, 2) . . .. 2 Now the wild beast that I saw was like a leopard, but its feet were like those of a bear, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. And the dragon gave to the beast its power and its throne and great authority.

(Luke 4:5-8) 5 So he brought him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in an instant of time. 6 Then the Devil said to him: “I will give you all this authority and their glory, because it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. 7 If you, therefore, do an act of worship before me, it will all be yours.” 8 In reply Jesus said to him: “It is written, ‘It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.’”

(Romans 3:23) 23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

(Ecclesiastes 7:20) For there is no righteous man on earth who always does good and never sins

(Jeremiah 10:23) 23 I well know, O Jehovah, that man’s way does not belong to him. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step.

(Psalm 37:23) Jehovah guides the steps of a man When He finds pleasure in his way.

(Proverbs 16:3) Commit to Jehovah whatever you do, And your plans will succeed.

Now lets cover the numbers 7 and 6 more to fully grasp their meaning. When you purify melted you have smelted purifying it seven times helps to get all the impurities out of the metal.

(Psalm 12:6)  6 The sayings of Jehovah are pure; They are like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times.

(2 Kings 5:9, 10) . . .. 10 However, E·liʹsha sent a messenger to tell him: “Go, wash seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored, and you will be clean.”

(2 Kings 5:13, 14) 13 His servants now approached him and said: “My father, if the prophet had told you to do something extraordinary, would you not do it? How much more, then, since he only said to you, ‘Wash and be clean’?” 14 At that he went down and plunged into the Jordan seven times, according to the word of the man of the true God. Then his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little boy, and he became clean.

(Luke 20:23-25) . . .to them: 24 “Show me a de·narʹi·us. Whose image and inscription does it have?” They said: “Caesar’s.” 25 He said to them: “By all means, then, pay back Caesar’s things to Caesar but God’s things to God.

(Revelation 13:3-6) . . .. 4 And they worshipped the dragon because it gave the authority to the wild beast, and they worshipped the wild beast with the words: “Who is like the wild beast, and who can do battle with it?” 5 It was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and it was given authority to act for 42 months. 6 And it opened its mouth in blasphemies against God to blaspheme his name and his dwelling place, even those residing in heaven.

(Matthew 24:13, 14) . . .. 14 And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

(Luke 8:1) 8 Shortly afterward he traveled from city to city and from village to village, preaching and declaring the good news of the Kingdom of God. And the Twelve were with him.

(Ephesians 2:1-4) 2 Furthermore, God made you alive, though you were dead in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you at one time walked according to the system of things of this world, according to the ruler of the authority of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience. 3 Yes, among them we all at one time conducted ourselves in harmony with the desires of our flesh, carrying out the will of the flesh and of our thoughts, and we were naturally children of wrath just as the rest. 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us. . .

(Romans 12:2) And stop being molded by this system of things, but be transformed by making your mind over, so that you may prove to yourselves the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

(1 John 2:15-17) 15 Do not love either the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him; 16 because everything in the world—the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the showy display of one’s means of life—does not originate with the Father, but originates with the world. 17 Furthermore, the world is passing away and so is its desire, but the one who does the will of God remains forever.

(Revelation 21:1-5) 21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I also saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” 5 And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also he says: “Write, for these words are faithful and true.

(Romans 2:13-16) 13 For the hearers of law are not the ones righteous before God, but the doers of law will be declared righteous. 14 For when people of the nations, who do not have law, do by nature the things of the law, these people, although not having law, are a law to themselves. 15 They are the very ones who demonstrate the matter of the law to be written in their hearts, while their conscience is bearing witness with them, and by their own thoughts they are being accused or even excused. 16 This will take place in the day when God through Christ Jesus judges the secret things of mankind, according to the good news I declare.

(1 Peter 4:2-6) . . .. 3 For the time that has passed by is sufficient for you to have done the will of the nations when you carried on in acts of brazen conduct, unbridled passions, overdrinking, wild parties, drinking bouts, and lawless idolatries. 4 They are puzzled that you do not continue running with them in the same decadent course of debauchery, so they speak abusively of you. 5 But these people will render an account to the one who is ready to judge those living and those dead. 6 In fact, this is why the good news was declared also to the dead, so that although they are judged in the flesh from the standpoint of men, they might live in harmony with the spirit from God’s standpoint.

(Ephesians 4:17-24) 17 So this is what I say and bear witness to in the Lord, that you should no longer go on walking just as the nations also walk, in the futility of their minds. 18 They are in darkness mentally and alienated from the life that belongs to God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the insensitivity of their hearts. 19 Having gone past all moral sense, they gave themselves over to brazen conduct to practice every sort of uncleanness with greediness. 20 But you did not learn the Christ to be like this, 21 if, indeed, you heard him and were taught by means of him, just as truth is in Jesus. 22 You were taught to put away the old personality that conforms to your former course of conduct and that is being corrupted according to its deceptive desires. 23 And you should continue to be made new in your dominant mental attitude, 24 and should put on the new personality that was created according to God’s will in true righteousness and loyalty.

So you can see now more then ever we need to have God’s word written in our hearts because receiving the mark will not be an obvious mark . Ignorance of God’s word and what he requires could make us more open and easily deceived into getting the mark. If we put our faith in man instead of God we could be easily deceived. If those who are religious leaders try to get us to put our faith in man for solving the worlds problems it should alert us that they are not worshiping God in truth and are part of the great harlot or Babylon the great who is misleading the whole earth.

      I don’t think it is the mark but I believe it is being used to empower the beast so that they can enforce their will on the world.
