Probably obvious to most, but to be definite..(Mark of the beast..)

If you only knew who I am...Let's leave it at that.

You will never be able to read the Bible the same way.

Some people were not meant to come to the knowledge of the truth.

We are in the end times and Revelation is happening.

Follow the commandments of the lord through your life and..

"Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water."


Ah mysterious, I should be worried now. Lets just say I could say everything you have just now back at you and leave it at that. I quite honestly am tired of pointing things out to have you completely ignore my post to come to your own conclusions.

You don't understand. Revelation wasn't written for you to fully understand. Even if you were able to align every inner-twinning part of Revelation, it still wouldn't be the same. Something VERY personal has to happen to you.

Just as the Bible says, people like you come from worldly knowledge. My knowledge comes from the lord.

Let's leave it at that. Your words won't change what has already happened.

I'm not here to gain attention, but instead I'm here to bring other people's attention towards the word.

No where did i claim to fully understand revelations (in fact ive been preaching about how we cannot fully understand it)... and that whole not understanding bit counts for you as well. How do you know that something VERY personal has not happened to me? People like me? Please fill me in on what it is you think I am, i would love to know because everything you have said makes me question whether or not you really understand the true purpose of the Bible.

How is this not suppose to be taken literally? I can obviously see the symbolism used, but God will unleash his wrath upon the people who worship the beast which would also mean taking the mark. The symbolism used innertwines with the rest of revelation, but...


So you CAN see the symbolism? but does the symbolism only apply where you deam it to apply? A cup is symbolic but not a mark of beast? says who? answer is you. The real meaning of the Bible, comes from within. Lessons to be learned, and interpreted cognitively. Do you honestly think people would take a microchip under their skin and leave a scar? Even atheists would not do this. So even atheists would not take "the mark" according to your interpretation of it. Is the microchip bad? Yes, no argument there brother.

You see "the beast" is this body, life, world that we live in. We are not meant to worship this so. This 3 dimensional world is just a learning ground. A test, that I intend to pass and have felt that this is the path from God. The mark of the beast is symbolic of a worshiping of this world, life, dimension, body.

You see, I used to think just like you. Grew up with religion, Bible is literal, ect. My eyes have since been opened by God.

It will pass though and life will be that which it was always was meant to be. With Love, Your Brother


Sorry but you are mistranslating a word to fit your beliefs. The word for sore is 'helkos' in greek and literally means 'a sore', 'an ulcer', 'a wound producing a discharge of pus'.
This is no metaphor. Maybe you could argue that it is a global allergy to a foreign body implanted under the skin of the receivers.
If money was such an evil beast, GOD wouldn't require His covenant people to give Him a tenth of theirs.
'The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.' 'You cannot serve GOD and mammon/money.'

GOD doesnt require a tenth of your money. The church does. It is your heart and your mind, not that you visit a Church every sunday. That isnt to say that church doesn't have its purpose in aiding a persons spiritual journey.

GOD required His covenant people (I was referring to the Jews, and now also the gentiles through Christ) to bring their tithes into the storehouses of GOD.
The Old and New Testament are full of references to tithing. It is an act of faith and trust in GOD to be your provider. GOD doesn't need money. He wants to know money isn't your god as well.
