I see many threads outlining the mark of the Beast. It is simpler than you think.
First, you are the beast. The Mark of the Beast is the identifier that opens our eyes to our own animal nature. We are a cross between divine and
animal. We are dwellers on a threshold of sorts. One foot in and one foot out. Simply put, the mark is selfishness. Why? It's simple.
The temple sacrifice of the animal was a personification of atonement for sin. Sin is caused by our own pride and selfishness against God's
authority. We seek our own knowledge and technology. God's is already perfected. By taking an animal to the altar, the priest took the symbolic
animal nature of the person as an offering to God. Each animal symbolized a different part of human nature. Read the verses and see that I am
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.
The mark of mankind is Carbon (6 Protons, 6 Electrons and 6 Neutrons). This is a key to understanding why both the commerce system and selfishness /
greed are tied to the fruit of knowledge. What is the fruit that grows from knowledge? TECHNOLOGY and transmuted carbon! The mark that kills the
breath of God is Carbon. What is the breath of God? Nitrogen (777) and Oxygen (888). Both of these atomic numbers are key numerology in the Bible.
God gives us permission to calculate. In this case, numerology is permitted. Why is this tied to Selfishness?
2 Timothy 3
3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive,
disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4
treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do
with such people.
---Here, you can see what the mark is. He says, "MARK THIS!" Why? You are to mark the numbers. There are 18 items. 6+6+6. Selfishness marks the
person who clings to the beast. The humble person clings to the divine nature and humbles the heart for the betterment of others. Beasts do not
suffer for others. Taking the name of Christ requires the character. We see the opposite nature above by 18 domains of nature. We see the nature of
the Temple Beast below by what the person is after in the end of the sacrifice. We then return above with the lessons learned. Some will suffer the
fire in its full force. Rejecting God's work of faith is rejecting truth.
6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of
evil desires, 7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers
oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9 But they will not get very far because, as in
the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
How do we overcome the beast that is in us all? It is tied to baptism and the fact that you MUST be born again. In other words, you are baptized
into this reality of water so that the water cleanses the temple after sacrifice. Repentance is cleansing the temple. Water puts out the Temple fire
(Trials). Here is the key verse you need. Who were the Pharisees and Sadducees? What did they need to do to put out the fire? What do your own
"experts in the law" (World Leaders) need to do to repent? What do the moneychangers need to do to repent? Who is the beast driving this greed? Who
are the beasts?
Jesus condemned three groups: Money Changers, High Priests and Builders who reject Christ (Masons). Who are the beasts today?
7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to
flee from the coming wrath? 8 Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. 9 And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our
father.’ I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. 10 The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree
that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
11 “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will
baptize you with[c] the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into
the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
We all have this beast to overcome. You are the beast in the end of you fail to see your lower nature and rise above with the name of Christ (Giving
and Faith). If you fail, you have your reward already. What you take is what you get. I have the same issues in life to overcome, just the same as
you and everyone else. All of us have this choice to make between our lower and upper natures.
There you have it. Now you know. At the end of the day, our technology will kill us, just as the Bible said. Read Genesis 3 with new eyes.
2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is
in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”
Is Oil in the 'middle' of the Garden? Carbon is the mark of man and all life based on this element. You are the beast until you are no longer an
Once you figure out the fact you cannot do this alone, Christ is there taking you the last mile. He stands in your place.
