This website is, more or less, is a personal account of some of the “harder truths” and difficult conclusions I’ve come to accept in my walk with Jesus Christ. This includes what I believe the Mark of the Beast was, is, or will be.
Now, in my mind, “harder truths” would be anything, once revealed as Kingdom truth, that causes people, including myself, to want to believe something other than than truth – to believe what our flesh wants rather than the truth as it actually is. As an example, I once heard a very popular preacher, whom I respect, say that retirement isn’t Biblical. Considering that roughly 94% of the working population believes retirement to be a long-term goal, what is the truth as far as the Kingdom of God is concerned? My flesh definitely wants to build a $1 million nest-egg and “retire”, but what does the LORD say? If we are to listen and believe what it is that God has to say then we, like the man in Job 40:4, must put our hand over our mouth. If we want to hear God’s “harder truths” for us, we must be silent. This thought is where the name of this website comes from – a truth that brings us to silence – a Silencing Truth.
Ultimately, What does the LORD say? is the question that will lead you to understanding the mark.
Now, what I believe I understand about “The Mark of the Beast” falls into that category of “harder truth” because opposing the Mark means giving up your very life (Revelation 13:15-17). The knowledge of what the Mark is does not come easily because it is only revealed through understanding “in the Spirit” (John 14:26; 1 John 2:27).
I will attempt to tell you what it is: The Mark is the evident outworking in one’s life proving that they live according to the flesh rather than by the Spirit, thereby proving they are devoid of the Spirit – not born again. This includes not only those who reject Jesus, but also those who appear to believe, but, in fact, do not (Luke 8:6; Matthew 7:22-23; 25:41; Revelation 20:10).
So, is this outworking a chip in the hand? Is it a tattoo? Is the vaccine the Mark? What does this “evident outworking” look like? Well, it looks like this – “normal life” (Luke 17:26-30). “But what does that even mean?!?!” you still ask.
Well, to adapt a line from a famous movie, “Unfortunately, no one can be told what the mark is, you have to see it for yourself… I can only show you the door, but you have to choose to walk through it.” It is a mystery, a secret, and is meant to stay that way until God reveals it to you. (Matthew 7:6; Mark 4:11-12)
If you are familiar with scripture, you already know what the mark isn’t, and through a simple process of deduction, you’ll come to understand what the mark is. I am willing to show you the processes and scriptures that brought me to this discovery – it may or may not help you – again, this all depends on the Spirit. If you are willing to look at the journey I have followed, then I believe you’ll have a great chance at coming to a full understanding.
All that said, if you believe in Jesus – I mean truly believe in Jesus – and take up your cross and follow Him, gaining this knowledge is not necessary. You have nothing to fear, dear brother or sister. Because you have everything you need for eternal life, you will never take the mark. If you follow Jesus, adhering to the gospel, you will not be tricked into taking the mark either. In fact, for the born-again believer, the children of God, it is impossible to receive the mark (1 John 3:9).
“This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. If you choose the the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up and believe whatever you want to believe. If you take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland, and I show you just how deep the rabbit hole goes.”
Which do you choose – Blue or Red?
