mark of the beast

(1/2) > >>

I would like to hear from the forum "what is the mark of the beast"? I know who is the beast (look in the mirror)and the number of his name,666, but not sure what is the mark of the beast.

The wild beast that ascends out of the sea in Revelation 13:1 is the fourth, last and most terrible beast Daniel described in chapter seven of his prophecy. We are accustomed to making these beasts political powers. But there are more than four political powers in the world. Yet there are only four major religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Christianity. All minor religions are offshoots of these. And remember, we just discovered that the beast to come will demand worship.

So possibly the mark of the beast is the membership in the coming world religion and acceptance of its demands.

edit: Rev 13:4  And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 
Rev 13:5  And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 
Rev 13:6  And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 
Rev 13:7  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 
Rev 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

We have to go back to the old testament(Deut. 6:eight), where ancient Israel was given the marks of God.  "The mark of the beast" would be blasphemy against God(Rev 13:6).

You are the beast.  I am the beast.  We are all beasts.  The mark is symbolic of our carnal nature. We are all born with this mark until God gives us victory over it.  The book of Revelation was written in such a way that no one will understand it unless God has given you the eyes to see it.  Think about it logically. The book of Revelation cannot be only about our time or some future time otherwise, it would have little value to God's chosen from past generations.  The Lord taught us these truths through Ray's teachings.  Reread his papers, watch his videos, and search through his emails.  He spoke about these things.  Stop guessing what these things might mean when many of the answers are already here. 

2 Timothy 2:15
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

The studying referred to in scripture is scripture and not the writings of any man including our friend Ray.
Some things are meant to be understood only through the power of the holy spirit working in the mind of the individual. All the explanations available will not always be helpful to all people since most are destined to remain in ignorance until they are taught by Christ after the resurrection.

When a person is resurrected at the white throne judgment they will not need to have faith to believe, they will be like the people living during the ministry of our Lord Jesus who taught them face to face in their own language of that day. Note that he taught by example and by healing or feeding the multitude. They believed who he was because they saw the miracle in person and did not have to trust that he was who he said.

The millions who are resurrected at the judgment period will believe in the resurrection because they will realize that they are alive once again and feel great.  :)
