Therefore, the "mark" may well be just as spiritual in nature as a physical thing, if not more; keeping the beasts "law" in their hearts, minds, and actions rather than God's law.

What if 'all's well that ends well?'
Does the 'end justify the means' in that case?

This is the proclamation of the beginning of the end of the current age of mankind. The Bible warns the world to be careful where the false prophets point, saying the Christ is here, or there, but is very specific where deception can be found:
♦ "And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived." (Revelation 18:23)
The great merchants of the Earth in the end times are clearly indicted as the culprits behind the complete deception of mankind. There are many concepts in the churches of the world about what the "Great Deception" is, ranging from the Church of Satan to UFOs. Capitalism, corporate greed, and the obsession with possession of wealth are seldom found on the list. Generally, anything that may cause members to question, or reject, absolute church control over their life fits the bill.
The single most destructive reality in our modern world, in our historical record, and from our ancient writings, is the pursuit of wealth and the power it gives. And, throughout history the wealthy elite have used force to maintain that power, giving the masses only enough power to produce that wealth, and eliminating all opposition to their despotic quest. Money and the power it facilitates have been the cause of wars, poverty, biosphere devastation, social degradation, political oppression, and the original source of all human and planetary problems. What is now shaping up to be a global monetary control system is clearly predicted in the pages of the Bible.
Money Is the Key
Follow the Money
♦ 1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
The dismal record of its lure throughout human history more than justifies this pronouncement, but the word "love" must be understood in its original meaning:
· Strong's Exhaustive Concordance renders "love of money" as "avarice" from the word "philarguria" pronounced fil-ar-goo-ree'-ah
· The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines avarice as "to crave", and the "excessive or insatiable desire for wealth or gain"
It is not, therefore, the simple desire for monetary increase that is the origin of evil, but the unnatural greed that drives the desire to acquire money at all cost, and without regard for the ultimate effect that it has on the planet, or the human race.
An ancient principle used by certain tribes of the indigenous peoples of North America was to make no decision without first taking into consideration the effects it will have on the next seven generations. Corporate decisions are made without regard to the effect on even the current generation. The bottom line controls all decisions in the world's corporate board rooms, and even the hint of the inability to increase that bottom line from quarter to quarter can destroy careers, ruin reputations, and bankrupt major corporations overnight.
The accounting scandals that devastated some of the giants of Wall Street show how honesty and integrity have no place in the race for the riches. Manipulation, misrepresentation, and blatant criminal fraud have now been exposed as the rule, rather than the exception, in corporate conduct. Even more criminal is the government decision to simply slap the hands of the perpetrators a little harder as a way to control the problem. However, considering the entire administration making that decision is a virtual roster of the darlings of the corporate culture, this is not at all surprising. It does show what the result can be when the line between business and government is erased. Corporate interests are clearly in control of the executive branch of the United States government. The only check on the power of the executive branch, the United States Congress, is the blind puppet of the corporate lobby system, thus, nullifying the power of the people over their destiny. With the makeup of the judicial branch of government decided by both the executive and legislative branches, corporate control of the U.S. government is complete. And, that reality has now moved into the global realm.
This work proposes that the very nature of the steady pace by corporations to control all aspects of life is no accident, but has a clear and terrible source. We believe this source has a purpose for this control and that it is openly revealed in scripture.

Upon further study the "mark of the beast" is internal and not an external mark. Translate modern Bible back to Greek / Hebrew and study further. The Bible is a whole lot more specific than we give it credit for it truly is "living and breathing". The truths are revealed to those who search in earnest and aren't for those who honor with their mouths while their hearts are far from him. The Bible, read generally without digging deep is a good story to live by but you must dig further to find more truths.
In the words of Christ, ‘...There is nothing hid, except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret, except to come to light’ (Mark 4:22).
Jesus Christ’s Parable of the Last Judgment (Matt.25:31-46)
..............And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand (Daniel 12.9-10).
