- You might believe there needs to be a physical mark on your forehead or hand. But again, this is wrong in that "a mark" does not need to be physical. In fact, "a mark" can be your signature, as in, "Make your
mark on the dotted line." It can also be an event or action, as in "He made his mark in history."
- You might also believe, based on the popular movie "The Omen" that it's going to be the number 666 on the back of the head of Satan." That's known as "misinformation." The correct Bible quote is "for it is
the number of man" not "of a man." The mistranslation of that phrase is what makes people think there will be some person with a 666 tattooed on his head.
In fact, "the mark" is created by mankind. The Lords number is 7. Man's number is 6. That's why it's 666. Because the Mark is create by man, for man, to replace God.
To understand this, you only need to understand the meaning of the word 'of.' "1. Derived or coming from; originating at or from. 2. Caused by; resulting from". Thus, man created the mark, derived the mark, originated the mark, but it's the "the Beast" that is going to use it. So what is
"the Beast?" Actually Revelations 13 tells us there are two beasts. One of the sea and one of land. Revelation 17:15 tells us directly that "the sea" is the multitudes of people. So you have a Beast coming forth from the people.
Ever read the words "of the people, by the people, for the people?" That's from the Gettysburg Address. How about "We the people.." That's from the Declaration of Independance. This is not to say these documents or the men who
wrote them had evil in their hearts, but it's just to show you the prophesy has come true. Revelation is full of references to "crowns." Well "crowns" are designations of authority, and in this case civil authority, ie, civil
government (or something that resembles a monarchy of sorts.) The reason the crown are on horns is that horns are symbols of Satan, thus these civil authorities are "hung" upon Satan, not God. That doesn't mean that's how they
started out, but that is the "tool" Satan will use to enslave the people. He is using the social security system (The Mark) which was created by man via his civil government (The Beast), ie, The Mark of the Beast (of the Sea.)
666. Translated: Man, Man, Man. Does that not fit our narcissistic society of today?
What about the other Mark? The Mark of the Beast of the Land? The Beast of the Land is probably a Monarchy or something that looks like a monarchy. It could be a false religion, military or maybe something else.
