First we need to take a short detour leading up to my postulation of 'THE MARK OF THE BEAST' to better understand my viewpoint. Right up front, I’m not dogmatic about my suspicions of the Mark of the Beast, but based on scripture and everything I’m witnessing, it leads me to a scenario of extraterrestrial [evil spiritual entities] involvement and how things could play out.
Dan 12:4 (KJV) But thou, O Daniel, shut up thy words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
In other words, the Lord instructed Daniel not to write anymore or explain any further, that no one would understand what Daniel was saying until the end-times, when knowledge and technology would be increased.
“Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Until the beginning of the 20th century, the fastest people could move was about 35 MPH on horseback. The world's population has exponentially increased to almost eight billion people on earth and we have an overabundance of automotive traffic jams everywhere and millions traveling on airlines. I’d say that constitutes many running to and fro, wouldn’t you?
“And knowledge shall be increased.” Would anyone disagree with that statement written about 3,500 years ago? [Trans-humanism experimentation, DNA tampering, creating human / animal chimeras, Space travel, computers, iphones, nuclear weapons and nuclear power, surgery & medicine, appliances, air travel, etc.]
Our generation now lives in an age where our eyes have been opened to understand these things prophesied in the Bible. Our ancestors certainly didn’t comprehend space travel, nuclear power and nuclear weapons, automotive congestion, or a microwave oven, etc. You get the point.
2 Th 2:9 (KJV) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.
Have you ever wondered what the biblical Mark of the Beast was? The following is a conjecture and detailed view of what that Mark of the Beast could be and why the world will be deceived into taking it, or maybe a close representation on how this plays out. Again, I’m by no means dogmatic, but trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together based on scripture, current events and our rapidly advancing technology.
As you read and ponder the following, keep in the back of your mind the plethora of popular ancient astronaut programs, ET programs, movies and occult programs on television today. Could this be some preconceived soft disclosure and conditioning for what may be coming upon the earth?
Matthew 24:4,5 (KJV) … Take heed that no man deceive you (5) For many shall come in my name, saying I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Make no mistake, when Jesus started off by saying “Take heed”, that wasn’t a suggestion, that was a command. To paraphrase; don't believe the lie, trickery or believe what is going to happen before my return. Sure, there have been and are many crackpots throughout all of history and today that claim they are Jesus. However, in my opinion that doesn't constitute 'many' historically or at present. Which leads to the question, how 'many' is many? I suspect it is a number that stands out and can't possibly be misunderstood. A number that everyone will agree is 'many'.
Matthew 24:37 (KJV) But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Genesis 6:4 (KJV) There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons 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. [Giants – Strong's 5303, 5307, to fall, cast down… Mighty men of old – Strong's 5769, ancient time, eternal, everlasting]. Does this sound like the line of Seth? Nope.
Jesus could have picked any point of recorded history from the Septuagint [the inspired Greek translation Holy book that Jesus and the apostles most likely used]. Why did Jesus point to that particular point in human history prior to the great flood? What really differentiates the 'days of Noe' from any other point in history? I believe two things.
(1) Noah and his family were not perfect in the sense of they were sinless in his generation, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. I believe it's talking about Noah and his family's DNA had not been corrupted. I take Genesis 6: literally and I don't subscribe to the 'line of Seth' view. From Genesis 6: and other scripture, my hermeneutics is that they had a gene pool problem and a seed war. The seed war' I'm referring to is, Satan's attempt to contaminate the blood line of the future prophesied messiah, preventing His arrival. Ever consider this, throughout all of history the Hebrews - Jews were the only people selected for constant complete eradication and genocide.
Not only were the fallen ones [Watchers and Nephilim] trying to create “man in their own image” [imitating God], they were doing their best to corrupt the bloodline of the coming Messiah so scripture could not be fulfilled. It bares repeating again, all throughout scripture and secular history, Satan has and is trying to exterminate God's chosen people [Israel], so that prophecy can not be fulfilled.
All “flesh” was corrupted and destroyed, to mean all people [Noe and his family excluded of course], animals and fowl of the air. Why also the animals and fowl of the air? In short, I suspect all / most flesh was genetically modified and corrupted by fallen angelic beings with DNA tampering of God’s creation, producing chimeras and other creatures not ‘after their own kind’. More on that later.
(2) Life spans: Everyone should be aware of the changes that occurred immediately after the global flood. The environment immediately and drastically changed to that we live in today, and life spans incrementally and substantially decreased from hundreds of years to 120 years for the 'strong' [Genesis 6:3].
There are literally dozens of antediluvian global megalithic structures, many weighing millions of pounds, rock joints with no mortar, fitted so tight they appear to have been molded and melted in place. That to this day can't be explained or duplicated with all our modern technology and machinery. Think about this; how much trouble would it be for a tribe of say 12-30 foot supernatural powerful giants, with angelic [demonic] technology, to put such unbelievable structures together? We don’t know of any limitations of power angelic beings have. The majority of secular archaeological scientists agree that most of these sites are pagan.
Almost every major historical culture on earth that existed has a written or oral testimony of what they understood to be alien beings or Gods. World wide there are hundreds of artifacts, pictographs, Sumerian written records and hieroglyphs from the antediluvian period and after, that show spirals [possibly representing gates or portals], human chimeras, advanced technology, alien beings, etc. Were all these global humans separated by thousands of miles, oceans and continents delusional, with vivid overactive imaginations, all at the same time? Or is there something more logical to it?
Consider the plethora of mythical beings, god's, chimera’s and heroes of old that were worshiped and sacrificed in the ancient; Persian, Egyptian, Babylonian, Greek and Roman world? Were all those pagan peoples back then pure idiots, and in their vain imagination invented these God's to worship, and to sacrifice human blood to? Or is it based on actual [demonic] beings that were actually real and on earth?
The Native American's had no written language, however, if you know anything about Native American oral tradition and history you'll realize the pains that were taken to accurately hand down oral history from generation to generation. It is truly accurate and much of it closely follows the biblical historical narrative in many tribes.
Some Native American histories record 'giants' living in the Southwest United States, with red hair, six fingers and six toes. Ever watch a movie where an Indian on horseback rides up at a distance to strangers, raise his right hand and says 'how'? Could he have been counting the number of fingers on his hand?
Genesis 6:2 (KJV) That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. [Sons 1121 Strong's, literally sons of God, angels. Adam was a son of God, angels are referred to as sons of God, we are sons of Adam. This is not the line of Seth].
Jude 1;6 (KJV) And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. [Angels – Strong's 32, (aggelos) messenger / angel. First estate, Strong's 746, order, time, place. Habitation (Oiketerion) – Strong's 3613, to cohabit, dwell]
From scripture we know for a fact all angels good and evil can manifest themselves in the flesh at will, eat and drink and not be recognizable as angels if they wish. Think entertaining angels unawares and Lot's visitors as one example. We know of no limitations of power angels may have.
So, what's all the preceding have to do with the mark of the beast?
2 Thessalonians 2:9 (KJV) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. Today we as humans are well on our way to trans-humanism in the name of science and attempting to extend human life spans and make better humans for space travel etc. How do you suppose God feels about us humans tinkering with His glorious creation? We were created in His image.
Science is delving in places we should not visit, such as; transhumanism, biological human nanotechnology, chimeras [yes, mice genetically modified with a human ear, pigs with human blood, etc.] DNA tampering and alteration, three parent children, etc., and that is only what is published and we know about. What if in the near future we received a little outside 'help' that speeds us along the way?
What in the world could possibly cause the majority of the world to suddenly rush and take the 'mark of the beast'? In addition to the rulers and the elite's desire to put humanity into global one world servitude and control everything.
Once again, I’m going to conjecture and speculate a suspicion I have, based on study, world events and my biblical hermeneutics. It may not be necessarily right, but this seems to be the direction it is going. I suggest powers and lying signs and lying wonders paying us a visit disguised as extraterrestrial aliens in the near future [The Vatican sure thinks so if you're willing to check out my statement]. Google the bizarre statements officially coming out of the Vatican on aliens and extraterrestrials.
This visitation might possibly state they seeded us [panspermia] on the planet and are responsible for us being here. They might offer humanity a fix for all our global problems and offer us better health and an extended life if we voluntarily accept this offering they bring?
Could this possible nanochip smaller than the size of a grain of rice inserted in our hand or forehead start to change our DNA to that of the biblical Nephilim and Nimrod the mighty hunter? In addition to not being able to make a living, buy and sell, could that be one of the reasons those who accept the 'mark of the beast' will receive no mercy and are condemned to damnation and no mercy, as the book of Revelation plainly states? Why do only those that accept the Mark of the Beast receive sores all over their bodies [Revelation].
Numbers 13:33 And there we saw the giants [Strong's 5303, 5307, Naphal, fallen ones], the sons of Anak, which come of the giants; and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. [emphasis mine]
Remember Joshua and Caleb's commanded by God to destroy every man, woman, child and animal. Today we would call that genocide. God is all merciful, but in these instances of the offspring of the angels, no mercy whatsoever is ever shown, why? They appear to be non redeemable. To my knowledge, the only time and people mercy is never shown to is giants [Nephilim] and those who accept the mark of the beast. Could that be an obvious connection as to why no Grace and mercy are shown to those who accept the mark and eternal damnation results?
I don't think the preceding is beyond the realm of scriptural possibility. Certainly all the necessary technology is in place, the motivation to implement such a system has never been stronger. It's seems to be just a matter of how to convince the world's population, or an exceptional event(s), or both to con the world to accept the number of his name 666.
With the global economy tanking, and government and personal debt beyond bankruptcy, I foresee a conversion to a cashless society [most likely due to a global economic crash] where all financial transactions are done electronically with debits and credits. Look where we are today, the percentage of people receiving their social security, welfare, Federal pensions, pay checks other than by direct deposit? Cash, the medium of exchange is rapidly being phased out.
