MARK OF THE BEAST (666). “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: 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. 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.” (Revelation 13:16-18) During the Great Tribulation it will be mandatory for both “rich and poor” to receive the universal mark of the Antichrist (666), which will be in the right hand or forehead.
“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark.” Some believe it may be like a micro chip as the passages said “in” the right hand or “in” their forehead. So, it may not be visible but something that could be scanned. Those who refuse to take the mark will not be able to buy or sell anything, and will be considered criminals of the state and executed (“beheaded”, see Revelation 20:4) Those who do receive the mark will be condemned by God to eternal “torment”, see Revelation 14:11. Thankfully the Rapture will take place before this, and Christians from the Church Age will be in heaven before the Great Tribulation. (See END TIMES)
