What is the Mark of the Beast Mentioned in Revelation?

“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.” – Revelation 13:17

I once got a comment from someone who said that the Mark of the Beast mentioned in the Book of Revelation is a microchip. At that time I thought that was the case. However, recently the Lord showed me the error of that thinking. Here’s a very helpful article on the Mark of the Beast.

Microchip: the Mark of the Beast?

  1. That aligns with my understanding. Right now, we see a lot of people whom are rushing to place themselves under authority of godless for,s of rule. All we have to do is look at history and we can see that when human authority is absolute that bad things happen.

    The book of Ezekiel also talks about a mark, but this is a mark to spare one from execution and it is given at the direction of God. Now, God made us as He saw fit and isn’t about to microchip us, or tattoo us, but the Mark mentioned in Ezekiel is given to those who are troubled by the detestable things going on around them.

    These above-mentioned marks may not be literally visible to the eye of any human, but we all know that sinking feeling of seeing people chasing off in the direction of some new development which takes them farther from moral uprightness. As humans, we don’t have any role in Divine judgment, but we can see the effects of leaving behind God’s standards and build our resolve to live moral lives, thus we will hopefully receive the mark mentioned in Ezekiel.

    1. Amen! Thank you for your helpful thoughts, Unknowable! Yes, by God’s grace, may we be found wearing the white robes of Jesus Christ’s righteousness when He returns or calls us Home! Let us pray every day for daily encouragement and strength to live each day in God’s sight in light of what He has done for us on the cross!
