Bible Commentary for Revelation 13:16

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.

    This covid operation looks very similar to the mark of the beast.

    It's not the shot - it's your phone with the "Green Pass" numerical barcode.

    Held in your hand.

    It is now in Israel: the Green Pass is required for entry everywhere - shopping, events, cultural, restaurants, gyms. You can't have the Green Pass without the shot.

    Green Pass was just approved by European Parliament 5 days ago.

    "Daily Pass" by Microsoft is also now required at Los Angeles United public schools: Children are barcoded, lined up and scanned in order to gain permission to enter school each day.

    I personally believe the Mark of the Beast is the microchip. It says in not on. I am quite sure the difference is important. The words of the Bible seem to have exact meanings. I realize the original word has numerous meanings; however, the chip is already being offered, and a cashless society is right around the corner.

    Hi Harris the shot and green pea are not the mark of the beast these are precursors leading up to it. But they will use these things to track those who refuse from obeying the laws of man. If you accept the mark of the beast you will be able to buy and sell if you refuse you will be killed Revelation 13:15 to the end

    The masks that are killing people with secondary bacterial respiratory infections and the poison needles that are killing people with poison are certainly leading up to the mark of the beast. I've heard some strong cases for the needle being the mark/charagma
  • Wenmar - in Reply on Revelation 13:16
    OnlytruthintheworldKJV, while I am reluctant to take the vaccine, I don't think the mark of the beast will be taken by a Christian on accident or unknowingly. I do believe you will be very aware it is from the devil and will make a conscious choice to receive it or not.

    I agree that 2020 was a dry run for those times. We are being conditioned and most are under strong delusion already. Praise God for His mercy to those that love The Lord Jesus Christ!!! May He draw many more to His flock before that day comes!

    Greetings in Jesus' name, Wenmar.

    I likewise do not believe the poison needle is the mark...yet. Noone is being killed for not taking it, and yea it is something people will be cognizant of doing. They won't be able to stick you, and say "ha ha tricked you, gave you the mark of the beast!"

    That said, a Christian certainly does not partake of any pharmakeia, but rather trusts in the Lord Jesus Christ for their health (Psalm 91 & Isaiah 53:5). So a Christian certainly wouldn't partake of any vaccine. I strongly encourage you not to, by the Holy Ghost.

    On a more important subject:

    Have you obeyed the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
  • Brother Dan - in Reply on Revelation 13:16
    You state "So a Christian certainly wouldn't partake in any vaccine".

    I'm a christian and I took the vaccine.

    You may be judging others wrongly...

    Matthew 7:3 Context

    1Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

    God Bless

    Not the shot. It's the phone you hold in your hand with numerical barcode "Green Pass" platform which grants permission to shops, schools, etc.

    This is the mark you willingly accept.

    "And 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."
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 13:16
    Likely few think that this scripture refers to a perverted form of Christianity that has a whole lot of say in the world.
