The Mark of the Beast, described in the book of Revelation, is not technology. It is about who you worship.
This is clearly seen in Revelation Chapter 14
9...If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; 11...and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
On the other hand, how the Mark is ENFORCED does have to do with technology. You can see this here.
Revelation 13:15-18 (NIV)
15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 SO THAT THEY COULD NOT BUY OR SELL unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666. (Some translations say it is the number of man, other translations say it's the number of 'a' man.)
Much can be said about the number 666. For example, it falls short of 7, which is God’s number of perfection. On one level, according to Ecclesiastes 3:18 the ‘beast’ is actually mankind, and just like the number of the beast where 6 falls short of 7, mankind falls short of God’s perfection.
However, a fuller explanation is, THE MARK of the beast is Satan’s trademark, as opposed to God’s sign. Satan is also the Beast (Rev 11:7) along with beast governments of men inspired by Satan. The mark puts paganism and pagan practices in place of worshipping the true God.
Pagan practices include gay parades, homosexuality, the abortion rights movement, Gaia mother earth worship, as well as all other things contrary to Biblical standards. However, Biblical prohibitions are not designed to oppress, but rather, to bless! – Rev 22:14-15.
The number 666 also relates to churches that promote a CLOSED Trinity. Instructions for God’s sanctuary in the Bible included a table of showbread holding only TWO rows/piles of SIX cakes of bread Lev 24:5,6. A total of twelve loaves, representing both Jesus, the bread of life, and God the Father. Churches that promote a closed trinity symbolically add a third pile of six cakes. The result is 3 piles of 6 cakes creating 666, the number of the beast! Rev 13:18. (More explanation about this here.)
There are other decodes of who 666 may apply to. I will not comment on them.
In Ezekiel chapter 9, God protects those who sigh and groan over the perversions around them, and a mark is put on their foreheads. Those who don’t have this mark are destroyed.
Ezekiel 9:4-6 New King James Version (NKJV).
4 and the Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.” 5 To the others He said in my  hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill;  do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity.
A mark, and a sign both show something. The mark and the sign are both in peoples foreheads, because that’s where they think.
In the end times, the mark will most likely also involve persecuting those who keep the seventh day Sabbath. Ezekiel 20:12
For those who argue there is no command to keep the Sabbath in the New Testament, read Matthew 24:20, where Jesus, speaking about a time after his crucifixion, said: “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day.” Plus I count 10 other places in the New Testament that say to keep the commandments, and none that say there are only 9 of them.
In the end times, Sabbath keeping is a sign for those who have learned that the Sabbath was not done away with at the cross, and is still one of the commandments that is to be kept. (Revelation 12:17, 14:12, 22:14-KJV)
Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be A SIGN between me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them.
Say to the Israelites, ‘You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the Lord, who makes you holy.
For those who dispute which day is the 7th day on the calendar, or argue we should keep a ‘lunar Sabbath’ there are proofs in nature that verify which is the 7th day. Bees and beavers for example:
Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. (Also see Rev 22:4)
The signs and marks are also on hands, because the hands show our works.
And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands. (Also see Mark 6:2 showing the good works and miracles of Jesus were the works of his hands.)
To Be Enforced
Buying and selling has a lot to do with enforcing the mark of the beast. The old Australian Bankcard (since replaced by Visa and Mastercard) had a 666 logo! – It had three 6’s… a yellow, orange, and red b.
At the time, it looked like it could be a way of enforcing the mark in the future. But technology has moved on.
Even so, buying & selling technology will be used to enforce the Mark (that is, Sunday observance) in the future.
It’s interesting to look at the tie-ins between the Bible’s mention of the number 666 and modern cryptocurrency technology.
For a start, crypto uses the Internet, which uses the prefix WWW for World Wide Web.. The sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Vav. Hebrew does not use W’s. The closest to WWW in Hebrew is VaV VaV VaV, which is the same as 666 in Hebrew. This is just an interesting coincidence, or perhaps not?
Another tie-in is 1 Kings 10:14
Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six (666) talents of gold.
How’s this for an interesting connection… The secret society of Freemasons identify their beliefs and beginnings with King Solomon. Also note that the Masons use the symbolism of masonry trowels.
Now check out Stellar Lumens crypto payment system logo. As shown here, it consists of two masonry trowels, put one on top of the other to look like Saturn, the sixth planet from the sun! So because of the Freemasons, this cryptocurrency has a connection with 1 Kings 10:14 and King Solomon’s 666 talents of gold in the Bible – the only other place in the Bible that specifies the 666 mark of the beast number!
Could this be a clue to a future 666 tie-in?
It’s my educated guess that Stellar Lumens will be used in future to enforce the mark of the beast.
In the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games opening ceremony they play-acted ‘Stella’ soothing a sinister ‘beast’ and after a ‘bull run’ they showed a new world order with a different form of ‘common-wealth’ that is obviously predictive programming showing their future plans. Check out the replay on YouTube if you like.
The name ‘Stellar Lumens’ is also meaningful, as Stellar comes from the word star, and Lumens = light. Check out the word ‘Lucifer’ and you’ll find it means basically the same thing: light bearer and bright morning star. That’s essentially the name of the beast (as in Rev 13:17) if the beast is the devil, although as already noted, it also says the beast is the number of man OR a man.
Of course, other cryptos, such as XRP also have interesting logos.
To me, the XRP logo is showing “as above, so below.”
Here’s a video for anyone wanting to research these crypto’s place in the New World Order in more detail:
At the moment, the two main ISO compliant cryptos that can be used for cross border payments in the New World Order are XRP and Stellar. (ISO is a messaging standard for SWIFT. )
XRP may be the phoenix that rises out of the ashes of the huge economic crash that is ahead of us. But exactly when that will take place is unknown at this stage.
XRP is also likely to be the leading crypto in future because it was created by a company called Ripple.
Most people don’t know this, but in the minds of those who control us behind the scenes, money has to do with maritime law, and ripples are tied to the movement of water, and are therefore a part of maritime law. To understand what I’m talking about, watch this:
Electroneum is another crypto to watch. The 6 pointed ETN lightning bolt logo is another striking symbol (pun intended)!
Using any form of money, be it gold, silver or cryptocurrency is not wrong.
However, controlling who you worship, how you worship, and what day you worship on, by enforcing buy and sell penalties, IS wrong.
But I see it coming all too soon.
I believe the Mark of the Beast is also called a ‘blemish‘ in the Song of Solomon. Go here.
What about Bitcoin?
As an investment, I would be cautious. Here are ten reasons why:
1) Bitcoin is outdated technology.
2) Bitcoin is not scalable.
3) Transfers are very slow
4)Transactions are expensive.
5) It’s controlled by Chinese miners
6) Although not likely, it is subject to a 51% attack.
7) There is no real use for Bitcoin… As a store of value, there are much safer options.
8) It’s an environmental disaster… it takes 72,000 GW (or 72 Terawatts) of electricity to mine one Bitcoin.
9) Because of this, I believe there is a possibility of it being outlawed by the future one-world government which is on the horizon.
10) Bitcoin can easily crash and burn.
On the other hand, because some of the same people who developed Ripple were probably also involved with the development of Bitcoin in the beginning, these people behind the scenes, who pull the strings, may keep Bitcoin alive and well. Time will tell!
(There is an alternate possibility for the meaning of 666 because 666 in the original text looks like Arabic for “in the name of Allah.” That is a possibility, however, I believe the explanation above is more likely.)
