What is the Mark of the Beast Bible Study

The Mark of the Beast Scripture Prophecy

As we just read ... The Author says that after the events which he just shared occur, that the kingdoms of this world would at that time become the Kingdoms of the Lord. But wait, the Book of Revelation continues talking about the events of the End Times that also occur on the End Times Timeline. Why is that, if the kingdoms of this world belong to the Lord at that time? It should be over, right? It is important that you fully understand this next point so that you are on the "same page" with the author of the Book of Revelation, which is Jesus (Revelation 1:1).

The reason for this style of writing and/or telling of a story is because just like many other books, documentaries or movies, when you have many characters and events to write about that happen at the same time, the author would need to use the art of reflecting because you cannot write of various characters at the exact same time, despite the fact that the characters were involved in the entire story at the exact same time, but they may not have been in the same place or doing the same thing, therefore you have to tell of the actions of each of the characters one after the other as not to confuse the audience.

An example of this is ... Imagine someone asked what you and your friends or family did that day and you began telling them all about your day and closed your story with you went to sleep. THEN you shared what you knew about the events that occurred on that same day to your friends or family. This does not mean that the other's daily events being shared happened AFTER you went to sleep, but rather that ALL events happened on the same day, but you could not tell the stories simultaneously.

I hope I have made this point very clear because as we head forward, it is essential for us to determine what happens to who and when it occurs to them, so that we are able to comprehend the timing of the coming events which we are about to read about. Failure to discern such matters is the reason for much debate and division within the Church and among fellow Christians.

So, the writer of the Book of Revelation has done the same thing. As we proceed in the Mark of the Beast Bible study on the Mark of the Beast Scripture, we see that the writer (The Apostle John) will now describe in the next few chapters some additional characters and additional events that occurred during the same time period, that we already read about, up to the point of the Kingdoms of this world belong to the Lord. This is obvious because the events that you are about to read about must occur before, as you will soon understand. Let us return to the Book of Revelation:

In Revelation, Chapter 12, we discover some very interesting information about individuals that will be hidden for 3½ years:

Revelation 12:1

And there appeared a great wonder in Heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

The Mark of the Beast Bible Study Truth
The Mark of the Beast Scripture Woe

Remember we discussed how important symbols are and how we would be searching the Bible for these symbols where we could? Here is a perfect example ... There is a woman who is described as being clothed with the sun and moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of 12 stars. This is a symbol for Israel.

Genesis 37:9

And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

This Scripture is referring to Israel ... Joseph (one of the twelve stars) had a dream (which is why it says eleven stars as he is the twelfth) that his brothers would all bow to him which they did. Since this vision was interpreted as Israel, it stands to reason that the same symbols are being used in John's vision in the Book of Revelation. So, this means that it is Israel that is in labor and about to have a child (Spiritually speaking).

Revelation 12:2

And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

Then the dragon (symbol for Satan ... See Revelation 12:9) and a beast with seven heads and 10 horns (symbol for Antichrist empire) cast ⅓ of the stars to the Earth. The dragon stood before the woman waiting to kill the child who was to "rule all nations with a rod of iron" ...

Revelation 12:3-6

3 And there appeared another wonder in Heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of Heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman [Israel] which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His Throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

The Mark of the Beast Bible Verse Fear
The Mark of the Beast Scripture Warning

The Mark of the Beast Bible Study Point of Interest ... Next, there is war in Heaven and Michael (Archangel) and his Angels fought against Satan and his Angels, and Satan and his angels lost, and were cast out of Heaven, not to return.

Revelation 12:7-11

7 And there was war in Heaven: Michael and his Angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in Heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

This makes Satan very angry, and woe to those on Earth, because he knows his time is short (3½ years) He goes after the Jewish and Christians, but they are helped and hidden in the wilderness.

The Mark of the Beast Bible Study Debate
The Mark of the Beast Scripture Timing

Many think that the woman is Mary and that Jesus is the child, but the woman is then taken and hidden in the wilderness for 3½ years. (1260 days - The Hebrew year has 360 days.)

Revelation 12:13-14

13 And when the dragon [Satan] saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman [Israel] which brought forth the man child.
14 And to the woman [Israel] were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time [3 ½ years], from the face of the serpent.

Now, let us consider this matter ... Mary was not hidden for 3½ years. The woman in Chapter 12, is Israel ... That is certain from the description we read in Genesis 37:9.

So, who is the child? Many suggest that the child is Jesus ... I mean it clearly says that this child is to rule all nations with a rod of iron. But, look what Jesus said about Christians that overcome:

Revelation 2:26-27

26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron;
as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

Saints and the Mark of the Beast Bible Study
Christians and the Mark of the Beast Scripture

This Scripture is Jesus talking to Christians. So, the woman represents Israel and the Child represents Christians. As it happened ... Christianity sprang forth out of Israel. A Spiritual birth of sorts.

Many Christians will be saved from Satan and Antichrist by being taken to Heaven in the Rapture where they will rule with a rod of iron just as Jesus promised ... This will anger Satan an he then goes after the remnant of her seed which are those who believe in Jesus, (Christians) that are still on Earth.

Revelation 12:17

And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ [Christians].

The Mark of the Beast Bible verse study provides us with even more evidence further confirming that there are Christian believers on earth during the End Times, even during and at the end of the last 3½ years during Antichrist's reign of terror. It is these Christians who will be forced to take the Mark of the Beast.

As much as scholars and many religious leaders want to suggest that all Christians are taken to Heaven before the End Times begins, Revelation 12:17 truly indicates that there will be Christian believers on Earth during the End Times.

Many Christians will be Raptured during the first Rapture which occurs between the 6th Seal and 7th seal, but obviously some will be hidden and kept safe on Earth as many more will be Raptured after the 6th Trumpet.

Even more Christians will never be Raptured as they are the meek that our Lord spoke of that will "inherit the earth" as to replenish it during the Millennium.

Matthew 5:5

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

You will read more of this a bit later in the Mark of the Beast Bible study sharing important information concerning the Mark of the Beast Scripture or you can check out the Left Behind study, if you have not already, but if you do, be sure to return to this study.

Soon, an evil empire will arise, as did the Roman Empire. It will have a fierce ruler which will be directed by Satan himself. This leader is known as Antichrist. Satan gives him his power, and he is marveled after by mankind and they will fear him.

Revelation 13:2-4

2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast [Antichrist].
4 And they worshipped the dragon [Satan] 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?

People will worship Satan who gives Antichrist power !!!

Antichrist will speak against God and he is given power for 3½ years (42 months based on the Hebrew 360 day year) He will make war with the Saints during his 3½ year reign (Remember, that is how long the Christians are hidden.) and he has power over ALL mankind (except true Christians) and they will all worship him in fear. Except for those who are wise and are prepared as well as those who partook of the Mark of the Beast Bible study.

Revelation 13:5-8

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 [3½ years].
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
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.
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.

Yet again in the Mark of the Beast Bible Scripture we find evidence that there are Christians on earth during the End Times. Antichrist will make war with the Saints and overcome them. Here is a Mark of the beast Bible Brain Teaser ... How will Antichrist make war with the Saints and overcome them if there are no Christians on earth as they were all raptured already? It is just not true that all Christians are Raptured. If one is not convinced by now that there are Christians on Earth during the End Times, they are choosing not to believe, based on something other than God's Word, as the Bible makes it clear; There are Christians on earth during the End Times. The Mark of the Beast Bible Truth is obvious.

Let's get back to our study on Antichrist and the Mark of the beast Bible threat, shall we? He will have a false prophet with him. This Religious figure will cause the world to worship the Beast (Antichrist) who had died from a wound and was healed.

Revelation 13:11-13

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from Heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

This false prophet can do miracles as to deceive many, even bring fire down from the sky as God did for Elijah.

2 Kings 1:12

And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from Heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from Heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.

This type of act will make many believe it is a true prophet and they will fear. This false prophet will cause mankind to create an image of the beast and this image will be alive and be able to speak and cause those that do not worship the image to be killed.

Revelation 13:14-15

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

We will now learn of the Mark of the Beast Bible verse eerie plot. He will also make all of mankind receive a mark of the beast in their right hand or in their forehead. Nobody will be able to buy or sell without this mark of the beast. The Mark of the Beast Bible Study Mystery ... The mark of the beast will somehow represent 666.

Revelation 13:16-18

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Biometrics and the Mark of the Beast Bible Study
The Mark of the Beast Scripture Procedure

Many believe that the "mark of the beast" spoken of in the mark of the beast Scripture will be an implant of a bar code under the skin. Kind of like the one on all the products we now buy, where they scan them at the checkout counter at your local grocery store. See the Biometrics study to learn more of this.

So, in the End Times, when mankind goes to make a purchase of any sort, from gasoline, paying bills to buying groceries for their family, they will simply reveal the mark of the beast and receive what they want. However as the Mark of the Beast Bible verse seems to suggest that if you do not have the mark, I suppose that you will be quickly escorted away to either accept the mark or be put to death. That is the Mark of the Beast Bible verse warning. But, wait ... There is more evil lurking.

Another of the Mark of the Beast Bible Study Points of Interest is this "image" that can speak? Well, if you are viewing this web page now, you are using an "image that can speak." The computer is quickly becoming the new trend in communication. The computer may be used in the construction of this image. There is no way to be sure until this image is set up, so just be watchful.

Now that we know more about the Mark of the Beast Scripture, let us go to Revelation, Chapter 17 to find out a little more about Antichrist. We are told that he is one of 7 past kings that died and had been put in the bottomless pit and was brought back to life from the dead.

Revelation 17:8-11

8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

The Mark of the Beast Bible Study Conclusion
The Mark of the Beast Scripture Summary

So, those on earth whose names are not written in the Book of Life will believe. But those who are on earth who do have their name written in the Book of Life will not as they will know the Truth.

In the Mark of the Beast Bible Study findings we discover that Antichrist is one of seven past kings. There is a way to find out which of the 7 past kings he was, which we will discuss on the next page. We will also be looking into his kingdom, as to find out what countries we should watch out for, as we continue our journey into the End Times.

The Mark of the Beast Scripture warns of a frightening time when people will have a serious choice to make ... Take the mark of the beast or die. However, if you do take the Mark of the Beast Bible branding, you may receive eternal damnation.

Choose wisely.

Let us find out what happens next, in our sojourning into the End Times.
