Is the current vaccine the mark of the beast like some are saying?

    Hi all! I was wondering. What do you think about the current vaccine? Some are saying it is the mark of the beast, but the vaccine itself is not required to buy or sell, and does not equal 666 according to some reports. If it comes out to be the mark of the beast like some might be saying, since I have had my first dose, am I doomed for all eternity? Also, I have had dreams of it lately as well. Is that from God or is Satan trying to scare me? I learned yesterday from someone else it could have the nanotech stuff in it, but I have looked at the ingredients in the one I got and that is nowhere in the ingredients, and according to other reports, it is not in the vaccine. I think part of the reason that I am having these dreams is that I keep looking up things about it, and I think when I go to sleep it gets in my dreams and disturbs me. For instance, I had a dream the other day that my wrist was hurting at the pharmacy, and I looked closer and there was some kind of chip, and the nurse said, "Yeah by the way it's too late you took the mark," or something like that. Then this morning I had a dream that someone's mom was trying to protect their child from the shot and I was just watching, I guess. I already know other Christians who have had the shot. Also, other reports say that a chip would physically not be able to fit into a vaccine at all, and then there is the fact that the Bible states the mark will go into the forehead and hand, and last time I checked, the vaccine goes into the arm. There is also the fact that every decade the mark f the beast is applied to something else. It was applied to phone lines, social security numbers, and as well as the polio vaccine.
    The only real reason that I got the vaccine, however, is to honor my mother (which the Bible says to do), since she really wanted me to get it. I also did it to love my neighbor (which the Bible also states to do) and protect others who will most likely stay unvaccinated. Another thing I want to note is that the day before and the day of I prayed for peace rather than fear while getting the vaccine, and I really truly believe He answered my prayer. Before I went in to the pharmacy, I was still fearful, and then when getting the vaccine, I felt at peace and even had some confidence about it (which is something I usually don't have). What do you all think? Let me know. God bless you all. Hope you are all having a wonderful day.

    In short, no. The vaccine isn't any mark of any beast. The idea that it is is foolishness. As if God on Judgement Day is going to say, "well you everything you were supposed to do. You fed the poor, cared for the needy, healed the sick, raised the dead. But gotcha on that vaccine! Off to hell with you".

    One of the things I don't like about the vaccine is, as knowledgeable people have pointed out, it prepares the way for complacency. It is a precursor to submission to the authorities. But it is not the mark of any beast.

    That's exactly what I thought myself. I feel like others who are spreading that kind of info are being ignorant and not reading Revelation properly. I don't think a vaccine could ever be the mark because at the end of the day, like I stated, it goes into the arm. I do understand why people are skeptical, as it is new and there is the fact that no one truly likes change, and it does make the way for government control/complacency like you stated. I guess I am pretty foolish for asking that, and I have asked others and gotten the same answer, but I figured it never hurts to ask. It does freak me out though that some people think that, and there is the fact that all of the signs of the end times are increasing and pretty much taking place, and the dreams really freak me out too, and I am not the only one who has had a dream of it being the mark, so I guess a lot of people are worried about that. Thank you for answering and for your input, I really appreciate it!

    No the mark of the beast isn't the vaccine, but it does seem that the time of something like it is getting closer and a lot faster at that. The mark could easily be related to some sort of medical ID but for now C19 is declining in infection rates but maybe other strains will get past the current vaccines and be worse a Covid 20.

    You don't worship the devil; and I'm assuming you don't see the number 666 as "cool" and tattooable.

    So no.

    However, it's in everyone's best interests to research a basic level of medicine, so that you can make informed choices when it comes to vaccines, antibiotics, and so on.

    I personally see the good in vaccines (prevention is better than cure), whereas with antibiotics I WILL be throwing toys out of the pram if I'm told to take them. I'm always on the reserved side unless I'm actually dying.

    Technically, since you've only had the first dose, that comes out as 333 - the Mark of the Partially Immunized.

    You do and think well. Go in peace.

    Yes I also see them as good. I also don't take antibiotics unless I absolutely need them.

    Antibiotics for cuts and things are fine, using them orally can harm your intestinal flora and cause all sorts of problems if you don't supplement your diet with probiotics

    I will never forget last year seeing this group of people from Texas on the news who believed the vaccine was the mark of the beast. Others see it as a forerunner or dress rehearsal for the mark of the beast.

    It’s not the Mark of the Beast.

    But this entire virus has been, imho, a test-run for much worse things.

    I know practicing, conservative Christians who’ve gotten it, and had no issues. I know others avoiding it or at least avoiding a second dose for personal or medical reasons. Others, because they don’t like the tenor of the “get vaccinated!” campaign and are opting out of it.

    It could be a precursor which is scary. I really hope it doesn't turn out to be the mark. What do you think?

    You are not in the tribulation or the middle of the tribulation. If people only studied and knew the Bible better they would not fall for Biblical misinformation.

    But i guess that may be part of the falling away.

    Precursor, stepping stone, forerunner, dress rehearsal to the mark of the beast? Could be, but I don't believe that the vaccine itself is the mark of the beast.

    Not even a precursor. The vaccine is what we hoped and prayed for. Senior citizens may go into crowds without fear of hospitalization, medical bill bankruptcy, or death. This COVID-19 virus killed more people than several wars combined.

    Just a point of info here.
    The note about the mark of the Beast and it's location is actually is a reference to the Jewish practice of wearing amulets [small, square boxes] that contained written copies of the 19 Commandments of God, and of placing them on the heads and hands of the faithful.
    They did this practice/custom as a reminder to themselves of the importance of following God's laws with their heads [thoughts] and their hands [in their actions].
    So the positioning of the 666 [ mark of the Beast] was to differentiate how different the two guidance and expectations for followers of satan were from the followers of
    God.
    One thing to keep in mind is how advanced our tracking systems are in this day and age. the medical information for shots administered is already located in numerous places all around the world; not just on the hands and head. But back in the OT/NT days, no one had computers or inception files, etc, so they used language and talismans that was widely familiar, to explain an identification process by which it could be determined which followers were of one group or another.
    Today we have shot records that do the same thing.
    What is more interesting is those talismans were used to separate two groups of followers.
    We have seen the same exact thing done to the Jews in Germany and nations then controlled by Germany during WW 2; dividing them from the Christians in an attempt to control thought. It was not successful, any more than any other attempts will be that are not of God.
    The second reason not to get the shot is also biblically based.
    This reason is because during the testing of the various formulas, the vaccines were tested in preliminary phases on the dead fetuses of unborn, aborted fully grown children, which were sold by abortion factories to the pharmacy companies for use in their labs.
    Some people object to that practice, and so they do not want to profit from the practice of such medical experimentation, at the expense of innocent lives which were deliberately snuffed out, and then denied a Christian burial.
    Yes, I know that these words are hard to read, but it is the truth.
    And that terrible use of the infants is why there is a tie to the old Jewish practice of reminding oneself about God's laws, and the importance of remembering the prohibitions against taking a life, or using your hands to commit sins against another person.
    May God have mercy on us.
