    How do we know that we already haven't taken the mark? Is it really going to be that easy to spot? I mean satan already knows we talk about the chip....why would he try that if we all are thinking...no don't get the chip. Don't you think he would fool us some over kind of way that looks eye pleasing?
    For instance...these cell phones. They are good and bad. I do like that I can text and talk to family anytime we want too..and I like having support groups and forums. Basically I do almost everything with my phone...pay bills, see the world news, communicate, you can even scan your phone to buy stuff at the store.
    But then I think, we we get the mark...which he causes all to do...people that are in jail...do they get the mark too? Are they gonna have to take a mark if they want to buy any vending machine food.(extra stuff) Lol I'm going out on a limb here. What about elderly in the nursing home? Do they automatically take the chip if they are confused?
    Or does family step in and say no?

    I have no clue what the mark is...I don't want the mark and everyone is thinking chip...could it be what you do with your "right hand" and what you believe?

    The beast image...one will breath life into whatever it is...people seriously think it's a statue? Lol you dont think what you see on tv and your phone isn't a image that comes to life? We all love our internet dont we?

    I just hope that the mark is not here and we have been so blind we took it. I think it's going to be very tempting and pleasing to the eye, like the fruit in the garden.

    Ugh...the wanderings of my mind.

    It's quite likely to be plain old simple money. The "mark" in Greek is the same word as "coin".

    Coin in forehead or arm is historically, culturally, and symbolically used as worship of Mammon and/or the Roman Empire. Long before we ever thought of the microchip. People actually did this.

    You cannot love both God and money. If you love one, you will despise (hate) the other - Luke 16:13

    If you love money you will hate God, and if you hate God, you will also hate the Christ and therefore, be an anti-Christ.

    The Greek for "receiving the mark" means "to eagerly / agressively receive". MOst people treat money in such manner -they eagerly /aggressively receive money.

    And the simple fact, both rich and poor will come to receive it AND they cannot buy nor sell without it!

    It's just money!

    The mark (currency) of the beast (political power) will be a universal currency controlled by a super-state that will be required for all to trade with. It was once thought that the euro was that currency; also the bitcoin. Ironically the closest to a universal currency is the U.S. dollar. :eek:

    That is nowhere close to satisfying Revelation 13 (nor the subsequent judgments for receiving said mark). It would condemn everybody who has ever used currency.

    I've thought that too...plain old money, but I can sell without money...Soloman had alot of money right? Or am I missing him up? But its what's in the heart..you don't love it...and cause other people to suffer for it, like most elites...CEOs getting million dollar bonuses and the people in the bottom like me...live paycheck to paycheck.

    I can't understand why we haven't been able to figure that out yet. It plainly says the number of his name is 666. Do we need to do numerology to figure out who he is? Thanks will read.

    666 has been applied to many down through history.

    If you are Born Again in Jesus Christ of Nazareth His mark is on you. Everyone else has the other mark.

    Another question..if we are to calculate his number...we are taking letters with numerical value and calculating his number? Is that considered numerology? There are numerous times in the bible numbers are used over and over. I think they have some significance.
    Why are we shunned from looking at numbers? Everyone says its evil.

    And no, I don't have any paintings of him, because I we dont know what he looks like, and I think that is having a false image...I have been really trying to study, searching the truth...I decided after i did research of Christmas I was letting it go. I stopped celebrating easter (bunny) and halloween yearssss ago. But that's my own personal preference. I just want to make sure I am following the right Jesus. Many will come in his name. My daughter has a huge painting from her grandmother of "Jesus" in her house...I have nicely mentioned we dont know what he looks like and we shouldn't have images of him...I can't make people do stuff..but I can mention it. She still has it hanging. :(

    We have a resurrected Jesus Christ of Nazareth sitting at the right hand of the Father. We have His Holy Spirit who dwells within us as our connection to Him. All other "things' are man made representations.

    Without using numerology, there is one person in the Bible that got mentioned with 666.

    That person is King Solomon.

    Quite plausible that is actually King Solomon. King Solomon was eventually given over to his pagan wives.

    Believe or not, King Solomon is an important character in modern Occult / witchcraft.

    Jewish myths also associate King Solomon with Sorcery / witchcraft, particularly in controlling evil spirits.

    The Hexagram has also been associated with King Solomon and the symbol is also used in witchcraft.

    Hexagram symbols or semblance / portions of it is used extensively with Roman / Latin art / engravings / coat of arms. And also in money prints.

    King Solomon's association with the Occult is apparently strongly linked to the Roman Empire (The Beast) as well and finally with money. Art used in paper money globally integrates many elements of Roman / Latin Art.

    A lot of things concerning the antiChrist leads to Solomon. Even the wisdom of Solomon in Proverbs often contradicts the wisdom of Jesus.

    In case you didn't know before, the Bible is not just a book to read. The Bible is also testing if you, if you can actually learn from it, particularly in the aspect of discerning the truth.

    Not everything written in the Bible is for us to obey and follow.....A very good example of this are the laws of Moses. We don't observe many of those laws anymore.

    And what about Solomon? Someone a lot wiser is coming and that is Jesus. Many Christians are still stuck with Solomon's inferior wisdom because Solomon talks a lot about money and many Christians love money.

    So there you go.

    People won't know most likely, if they already did take it/accept it/ or after they do.
    It likely will be considered 'normal' life - needed for convenience, security, or some such.
