If you know me and my posts, you know that I am on the hunt to define symbol and solve mysteries in the Bible. Count this one as checked off the
list. I'll save you time.
SELFISHNESS is the mark. Now read why:
I will keep this as simple as possible. The concept is easy to see if you know the symbols and their root meaning. The further you read, the more
you will understand why I have reached the end of this symbol.
As you read, relate our journey in the wilderness to a Garden. Nature tells the story of a plant growing in a sequence of growth by the water and the
light. Consider what a plant needs from the juvenile sprout to the fully grown plant bearing fruit on the new ground. Consider the work of the
roots below and the branches above. Is a tree selfish? If you can answer this, you know what the mark of the beast is.
Truth needs only one law, but requires a direction. For the garden to prosper, a gardener must suffer the hoe. This labor of intent moves the
direction of reward if the labor is pure and grounded in love. The KEY to this knowledge can be found on the ground, a labor of toil toward the
hidden treasure we find. Give and receive is the direction to bless. Take and destruction denies. The hoe clears the path for the seed to come
forth. Deny the water and the seed becomes dry.
Something I said once on ATS.
Five Baptisms (3 are mentioned (Matthew 3) and 2 implied) Each Baptism reveals a trial and an adversary to overcome. The entire exercise refines us
and develops our spirit through experience.
Confucius said, "I hear and I forget. I see and I learn. I do and I understand."
Earth - We are planted into the Garden. We are not rooted in soil and we must overcome the hardships of the wilderness we occupy.
Air - We are given the Word of God. This word is also the language we learn to master. Meaning ultimately comes when we decipher the symbol and
overcome our ignorance and pride.
Water - We are baptized into the Water (Immersion into Reality). The water cleanses the temple. The temple is where the sacrifice is made. That
temple houses the spirit of God with our soul. We are to overcome as we are born again. You must be born again.
Fire - We are baptized by Trials. The Flaming Sword of God cuts away pride and protects the tree of life. The tree of life is DNA. We light the
fire we burn by.
Spirit - We are baptized into the Spirit when we overcome the other four. Jesus is necessary for us to be marked by the spirit for salvation from the
Fire. The water and blood of Christ allows us to overcome the fire for good.
How do we overcome and what do we overcome?
The Mark of Man is Carbon (6 Protons, 6 Neutrons, 6 Electrons) The Fruit of Knowledge was taken as a Thief. The Fruit is what we grow by our own
efforts and the same technology that is killing the earth. Carbon is the mark of our technology and greed for more. We took of the fruit other than
what God provided. That is pride. God overcomes our pride with trials and light. Light is what is taught.
So what do we overcome and what is the identifier of the one who has taken the mark? The answer was simple.
You might make the case that Pride is the root of this. You would be correct. The root of the Hebrew language branches to make the words in the
chain. Selfishness is the first mark of pride on mankind.
How do we overcome? With the Air (Breath / WORD). Carbon is 6 electrons, 6 protons and 6 neutrons. Nitrogen is 777 (God's Heptadic Number). Oxygen
is 888 in Greek Gematria (ISOUS - I = 10, H = 8, S = 200, O = 70, U = 400, S = 200 / Add them together and get 888). We overcome with the Breath God
gave us and the Word we speak with the breath. We overcome by knowing the meaning in the symbols.
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their
wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world
God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people
are without excuse.
When Noah stepped out into a new and regenerated Earth, how many people were with him? The answer is Eight. The Ark is a picture of the church age
traveling to a new Earth. Who sold Joseph into slavery? Israel. Who did Joseph identify himself to during the 7 years of famine? Who led the
people across the wilderness to the promised land? Did God provide? Who was left behind when the people left Egypt? The ones who took from God's
people. What is our Egypt? Earth.
Overcome Selfishness and the mark is replaced with Two Crossed Sticks
Goat Hair Tents
are replaced with Mansions.
Where is our inheritance?
19 And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them
and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven. 20 But as for you, the LORD took you and brought you out of
the iron-smelting furnace, out of Egypt, to be the people of his inheritance, as you now are.
It's the UNIVERSE!
What is our inheritance?
10 When the LORD your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you—a land with large,
flourishing cities you did not build, 11 houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and
olive groves you did not plant—then when you eat and are satisfied, 12 be careful that you do not forget the LORD, who brought you out of Egypt, out
of the land of slavery.
Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow
The Mark of the Beast is Selfishness. Carbon produces the technology, goods and services to feed the Beast. That beast is you and me. A beast is
the archetype of selfishness and uncontrolled desire and greed. The hands grab for more and the mind and eyes cannot get enough. The mark is in your
hands and your forehead.
6 Protons, 6 Electrons, 6 Neutrons
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.([e] or of Mankind)
That number is 666.
Will there come a day that we must deny a mark from our Government? I am sure of it. See this thread.
Can we identify the mark as Selfishness as well. YES. All symbols have
interrelated meanings and multiple perspectives. God locks the universe into one book for us to decipher. Eternity is encoded into us all by the
WORD of God.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
