Seems like every few weeks I hear on news about a new technology that is warned as being the mark of the beast. Well now it looks like the alarm should be going off, yet don’t hear the warning. I found a good blog thinking like I was so here is some of “COVID-19 and the mark of the beast”.
Covid-19 and The Mark of the Beast
By: Tavis Bohlinger
I know of no reputable biblical scholar or theologian who would endorse that the COVID-19 quarantine or a vaccine is related to the “mark of the beast”. For starters, in Revelation, the “mark of the beast” is by no means a medical procedure. Most likely, it’s not even a physical or visible mark at all. Contrary to some of the more fear-inducing theories that have in the past gained steam in some evangelical circles, the “mark” is not at all something that could be accidentally taken either.
Why? Because the mark of the beast (Rev. 13:16-18) is a mark that is closely tied to the worship of the beast (13:12, 15; cf. 19:20; 20:4). Thus, the mark of the beast is a mark of loyalty and devotion to the beast.
Moreover, when you compare those passages where the mark of the beast is discussed with passages like Rev. 7 and 14, it is plausible to think that the mark of the beast is most likely a sign that identifies you as something you already are—namely wicked and evil, a person of the dragon. I say this because when you read Rev. 7:1-8 and 14:1 (where the mark of the Lamb is discussed), you’ll notice it is a mark given to God’s people, God’s servants, in order to identify them as such and, of course, to protect them. They get the mark of the Lamb because they are already united with the Lamb.
It seems pretty evident that all of this is the case because these two marks—the mark of the beast and the mark of the Lamb—are meant to be seen as two polar realities, two opposite signs, marking out as it were two different types of people, namely, the wicked on the one hand and the righteous on the other.”
…Speaking of sensationalism, it is interesting how things cycle in and out the way they do. Even in our own lifetimes, for example, the “mark” was first attached to social security numbers, then to credit cards. Now, apparently, certain interpretations of the COVID-19 quarantine are making their own contributions to evangelical lore.
Now we need to look rat what the Bible says .
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
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.
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.
So, what I am getting at today is this, nothing we have now is the so called mark. However, it is conditioning people for it. There are injectable chips that CAN do all the same things. However, it is not a choice to renounce Jesus or die! No way to trick you to take it if you get an inoculation for something like say COVID!
What Covid is doing is making something mandatory to stay in society! I remember reading about a similar item being used in the building up to WW2 in Nazi Germany. All undesirables were rounded up and given a patch to wear, a mark so the Nazis could find them and send to gas chambers. The Bible says the Antichrists mark will be specific and must be accepted if you want to work, eat, drink, travel etc. If you refuse you will be beheaded!
The Covid vaccination started as voluntary since it is experimental and government said it wanted to reward the people. I was given the Johnson & Johnson shot on the first day I was allowed by the VA. I believe in the shot for the good it does but, the ones not taking it that is their rights! The federal government does not have the authority to override our decisions! This opens the door for an Antichrist to do the same!
Please don’t be afraid of the vaccine and if you are able to take it then consider it. But never will I stand by and watch fellow citizens being forced to get a shot they don’t agree to, what’s next government mandated abortions?
Thank you and God Bless.
