MARK OF THE BEAST
In general, what are some of the ways you are MARKED as a Christ-follower? The answer: the way you THINK and ACT! You are known by your fruit. You THINK with your head and your ACT with your hand. You have the mark of Jesus on your head and your hand! You worship him, not the beast!
Revelation is a vision that needs to be decoded. I do not believe the mark of the beast is a physical mark. Do you think satanic thoughts? Will your actions lead anyone to believe you worship Satan? The answer is NO! You do not have and will not get the mark of the beast!
With what you know about God and his goodness and mercifulness, would he condemn you to hell for trying to feed yourself or your family if the world required you to receive a chip so you could buy groceries? Absolutely not! That is not a characteristic of my Father!
Satan uses our misinterpretation of God’s Word to control us. Throw that one in the trash and stop thinking about it.
I came to this conclusion because I did a quick search of the word “mark” in my Bible app, and the only physical “mark” used was for the nail marks in Jesus’s hands and his side. The other “marks” mentioned were not physical marks. Rejoice! You are safe!
... and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. Revelation 20:4
