People's Bible Notes for Revelation 13:16


Re 13:16 He causeth all . . . to receive a mark. The mark of the beast is some stamp or sign, by which all its worshipers should be known. In ancient days slaves were sometimes branded, as cattle are in our own age. The brand or mark of the beast would be some indelible sign which would designate with certainty those who were subject to his authority. To receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. A mark in the hand is supposed by some to represent the practice, while a mark in the forehead indicates the profession of life. It is remarkable, however, that a mark on the forehead, the sign of the cross made with water, converts a person into a Roman Catholic, and without this mark none are regarded as heirs of salvation.

    Everything in its proper time frame indeed. I don't the the antichrist is going to baptise with the Holy Spirit Tongues do any of you? God will send Elijah to baptise His chosen elect Zion and be brought into our Blessed Lords sheepfold as His Holy Word has spoken, Glory Amen. Calling Elijah the dragon comes straight out of the Vatican itself. Their not going to stop my Abba Dad

    Continents there are 7 and the beast rises up out of the sea, let me guess? Oh, waters are the people and they have 10 horns with crowns well, let me guess that's 10 kings! That means 10 kings over 7 continents over all the people of the world and I wonder who there leader is who comes to deceive the whole world who looks like the Lamb and speaks like the dragon and who is over the 1st beast. SEA!
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Rest assure Vatican Rome shall face open Justice once and before all before this age closes out and they know it. There Truly is a God in Israel and our Blessed Lord Christ is Truly seated at His Right Hand. Gods Holy Word will be fulfilled Glory Amen and Amen. Elijah is neigh at hand and they know it. The True Bride will be throughly purged with the Living Fire of the Holy Ghost Glory to God Amen

    Rome. 7 heads, 10 horns just like in Daniel. The sea is "nations,kindreds
  • Word
    There are two 2 beasts in Revelation Satan the son of perdition the false messiah the antichrist who is instead of Christ who will preach fly away for those who want to rapture with him. That beast has a religious whore who is a second beast who rises up from out of the water and the waters in Revelation are the people. Mystery in Greek if you look it up and search its religious whore.
  • John
    Read Revelations 4 verse 9 then Read Isaiah 44 verse 20 it would be great to read all of chapter 44 and then focus on verse 20
