Revelation’s thirteenth and fourteenth chapters show what the mark of the beast is, what it looks like, its location, and the fact it is presently on earth. On a side note, the seventeenth and eighteenth chapters discuss where Mystery Babylon (Mecca) is and what happens to it. Everything eventually leads to what is called the Great White Throne Judgment.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 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 (Revelation 13:16-17).
The Greek word for hand is χείρ (cheir); it extends up to the forearm. This is an important fact that needs to be remembered, because of its pertinence to the future. Conceivably, this is an idiom, like that of the Roman Empire. Allegedly, it encompassed the world but, in reality, the Roman Empire only had Europe, parts of North Africa, and the Middle East; it did not encompass the New World. Some parts of the world will not be affected. This is more of an idiom than a literal statement. We will look at this closer later.
Here 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 (Revelation 13:18).
Several aspects of this have already been discussed but not all of them. As written in many Bibles, χ £ ϝ or χ ξ ς, stands for 666. (616 is a variant.) Take those three current Greek numerals and turn the 60 (£ or ξ) down, put the 600 (χ) at the top left corner then place another 60 (£ or ξ) in the top center, followed by inserting 6 (ϝ or ς) to the left of the right bottom corner. Ironically, the result strongly resembles Allah’s symbol, which is shown below.
Ladies and gentlemen, the number 666 is the symbol of Allah. The Mark of the Beast is the symbol of Allah. See the symbols used below from the Codex Vaticancus around 450AD.
The sign of Allah is the Mark of the Beast! It can be seen on red and green armbands and headbands of Muslims
in ISIS today. I am reminded of the Old Testament where the Jew was told to wear the Word of God on his forehead and his right hand to be reminded of God’s blessings toward him. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. (Deut. 6:8)
Remember the word “hand” in Greek can include all the way up to the forearm, (Matt. 12:10) so the Mark can even be an armband on the right forearm and yes ISIS members are wearing such armbands now. Could the Anti-Christ be a hybrid? Go to Genesis 6 and 1 Chronicles 20. Three theories exist about the sixth chapter of Genesis. Most seminaries teach
that the sons of God in these verses were the sons of Seth, plus the daughters of Adam were the daughters of Cain. In order to rationalize that, people must determine from the fourth verse how a Godly and ungodly marriage ever produces a giant. The answer is that it does not happen. An additional theory is that the sons of God are magistrates. If this is the case, then people have to wonder, when does a ruler marry a commoner and a giant is produced? They have to realize that this also does not occur.
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them (Genesis 6:1).
There are 7,000,000,000 people on the earth today and there were probably close to that many before the flood, perhaps a few more. The sons of God (bene ha elhoim in the Hebrew) is used six times in the Book of Job. Each mention of it usually refers to the sons of God as angels. Therefore, it can exigently be translated as “the angels of God saw the daughters of men.” One entire historical book that is not in the Bible, the Book of Enoch, describes this and goes into detail concerning the Six Chapter of Genesis.
That the sons of God (or the bene ha eloim, the angels) saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man (Genesis 6:2-3)
In this instance, the word for man is “ha adam” and it means mankind. Reading on, it says man’s days will be 120 years. He groups these giants, in the fourth verse, with the daughters of Adam and calls them both mankind. Look and see why that makes any difference.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God (or the angels of God) came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown (Genesis 6:4).
The Hebrew word for the offspring of these sons of God and daughters of men is Nephilim. Erets is the Hebrew word for earth. Nonetheless, they are called men. They are the heroes of Greek and Roman mythology, the center pieces of the mythology from the past.
As for why the holy angels could not perform actions of sex, Matthew 22:30 says that they “neither married nor were given in marriage.” However, it does not say that the rebellious do not marry or do not have sex.
First Chronicles 20 shows a significant thing about these giants during that time which relates to what was read in Revelation. Remember these giants, or Nephilim, are half angelic and half human, but they are called men anyway.
And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature (Nephilim), whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each foot: and he also was the son of the giant (1 Chronicles 20:6).
Technically, Enoch would call him an elouid, a son of a giant, not a giant. Yes, giants had children. Goliath is also called the son of a giant. The point is that the six fingers and six toes (six) is a reaffirmation of 666.
If I wanted to tell you what the future Antichrist is going to be and I knew that you know Biblical history, I would say 666, with an understanding that the giants of old had six fingers and six toes. A possibility exists that this Antichrist is a representative of Allah. In addition, he will be a hybrid (Nephilim) who is a half human that was fathered by Satan.
Jihadists wear a red armband along with a red headband that has the symbol of Allah on them. Undoubtedly, this Antichrist will be the embellishment of Allah. Those people are looking for the Mahdi (prophesied redeemer). Islamist’s also have a prophecy in the hadith, which states that the Nephilim will come back prior to the days of Christ’s return to the earth, before the days of consummation.
Matthew 24:37 shows that the disciples asked Jesus what the world was going to be like just before his return. He responded by saying that it will be as the days of Noah. As such, the disciples immediately thought about the sixth chapter of Genesis and angels marrying humans. Furthermore, Jesus says they will be marrying and giving in marriage. However, people would only catch that, if they were disciples who were thinking about Genesis and familiar with the Book of Enoch, which they would have been in the first century; thus, it makes perfect sense.
Today’s UFO phenomenon could easily be the return of these fallen angels. They are demonic entities that have begun to stir and cause some of these things to happen. Revelation 13:15 says that Satan, or the devil, was given power to give life unto the image of the beast:
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
According to this, the devil can impart life. Perhaps he has previously done it. For example, consider the Neanderthals, Cro-Magnum. They have no genetic connection to mankind and are not the missing link. Evolution is a lie. Perhaps they were Satan’s procreation?
When Cain was kicked out of the Garden, there were enough people to build a city. Who were those inhabitants? Thoughts are that they were a competing civilization which was created by Satan. He always tries to do the same things that God does, but the devil can only produce counterfeit results.
Back up and look at Revelation 12:7-9: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
When Satan and his cohorts were cast out of the spiritual realm where did they go? In reality, they got kicked out of heaven and landed flat-footed right here on earth. He and his minions deceitfully disguise themselves as aliens.
Notice Luke 10:17-19: And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
My belief is that Luke did not see this one-third of the angels who were cast out of heaven in Revelation. He witnessed a futuristic event that is yet to happen.
An indeterminate number of fallen angels exist. They descended upon earth in the past and continue to fall. Some have not yet arrived, but they are coming, which fits the scenario that the Book of Enoch talks about where, prior to the flood, 200 of them were involved in the eruption (written in the sixth chapter of Genesis).
When Israel went into Canaan, they ran into giants again, proving there was a second incursion. More angels rebelled and fell, suggesting that revolt has been going on throughout all the ages. This was not something that happened all at one time or the total that ever fell.
Judgment has lingered. Why has God waited all these years for judgment if it was not to see the last one fall? Eons have gone by and God has allowed this to happen, waiting for a last spark of rebellion to show and then judgment will come.
In Daniel 12:4, God says to Daniel: But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book (this is talking about the book of Daniel), even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Interestingly, that verb “run to and fro” is used in Modern Hebrew, translated as “browsing the Internet.” Obviously, Daniel is told to shut up the words of this prophecy until the internet is in existence. Think of the volume of information that the web now makes available to each person.
As previously noted in this book, the Laodicean church had some inclinations of Mystery Babylon, and the city of Laodicea was the banking center of Asia Minor. Most theologians understand these seven churches as a timeline, with the church of Laodicea being the final age-lukewarmness.
Christ says that humans are naked and unclothed, which is very much like today’s church where everyone thinks they have everything they need. Additional topics that were discussed included the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the white horse (which most likely is Islam who conquers). Some theologians think it is the Antichrist but, if Islam and the Antichrist (the Mahadi – Antichrist) are the same then that makes sense. The red horse represents general war throughout the whole planet while the black horse is depression and famine. Green, or the pale horse, could be a spotted horse that causes death by viruses. The wild beasts of the earth are various pandemics.
Zechariah 6 is where horses and Spirit riders are first mentioned in the Scripture; this helps people fill in some of the blanks. Read verses 1 through 8 and see this as symbolic references to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass. In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses; and in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses. Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord? And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the LORD of all the earth. The black horses which are therein go forth into the north country; and the white go forth after them; and the grisled go forth toward the south country. And the bay went forth, and sought to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth. Then cried he upon me, and spake unto me, saying, Behold, these that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country (Zechariah 6:1-8).
Remember there are four horsemen in the Apocalypse. Most expositors think that grisled and bay basically means spotted horses. What is seen here is an analogy of horses and Spirit riders that are seen among the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. The Book of Revelation starts out with 7 billion people, but by the time it gets to the eleventh chapter, the populace is down to less than 1billion people. One of the main reasons is because of Wormwood, found in the eighth chapter. Read the Scriptures prior to those concerning wormwood and see that earthquakes and lightning and thunder strikes. Following those things, a third part of the trees and all of the green grass is burnt up, decreasing the population to about 3.5 billion. Another third part of the sea becomes blood, resulting in about 2.5 billion inhabitants remaining.
And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; and the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter (that diminishes society to nearly one billion people) (Revelation 8:10-11).
During this time, most people are going to be homeless, because winds, fires, hail, and quakes will level housing. Electronic communications will also be impossible due to satellites and telephone lines being destroyed. Electricity will be inaccessible as well. Clearly, these will be primitive times. A world computer is not going to keep up with everybody’s mark of the beast either like some people believe of RFID chips. Furthermore, society will not have running water when the asteroid (Wormwood) strikes earth.
A few individuals think Wormwood is Planet X Nibero and have written about it but that does not necessarily make this the truth. An asteroid named Wormwood actually passes near earth’s orbit about every twelve years; it is large enough to cause such kinds of catastrophes. Without a doubt, roads, bridges, rails, and runways will also be completely knocked out. Famine is going to be worldwide. The supermarkets are going to have empty shelves. This results in unrest, rioting, looting, and chaos everywhere. Citizens will have to abandon cities in attempt to find food and safety. Armed gangs will be able to loot, mostly without opposition. All this happens in Revelation, prior to reaching the eighth verse and eighth chapter of the book. This is precedence for what is seen throughout Revelation.
