This s the first in a series on what the Bible says about the mark of the beast. Most people agree that this mark is the number 666. But is this what the Bible says? No matter what books or preachers or Hollywood says about the mark of the beast, its worth taking a careful look.




How does the mark of the beast relate to buying and selling? References in Scripture to the "hand and forehead" refer to a deeper issue of choice in the minds and actions. It's a Bible principle. Economic sanctions have been used by nations and individually there may be a super card ... but the issue is not a bar code on your forehead.




In all the pages of the Bible there is no more terrible promise of punishment than that found in Revelation 14:9, 10. Our souls shrink from the awful nature of the doom which shall overtake those who shall follow the beast and receive his mark. It is a matter of life or death for us, friends. One who refuses to heed the warning is surely committing suicide.

So, who or what is the antichrist?

Who are the 144,000? Where are these people coming from? Information on this is found in Revelation 7 and 14. Some people think they are unmarried, but it is a symbol by being theologically pure.

Who are the great multitude in white robes in Revelation 7:9, 14? They are a massive harvest of people just before Jesus returns.




Explain the 8th beast in Revelation 17:11. Backing up to verse 9 we see a woman sitting on seven hills, which represents Rome. These kingdoms represent those that persecuted God's people. The one John currently lived among was Rome. Yet there is one to come.




How do we know the 144,000 aren't literal Jews from the 12 tribes? I believe they are not literal Jews but are symbolic. Many symbols are listed in Revelation and this is one.

Can you explain to me Revelation 17:12 on horns receiving power for one hour with the beast? The context of Revelation 17 is a discussion of a woman sitting on a beast.

Why does the dragon in Revelation 12 have seven heads and 10 horns? The Bible shows that the dragon is the devil. Seven heads are seven leaders and 10 kingdoms. You find this spoken of in Revelation 17 as well.
