Inventions of the MoB

The VISA card VI = 6, S = 6, A = 6 (the latter a numerology assigning 6 for A,12 for B etc to try and identify the Antichrist, Kissinger makes it on this method)

The bar code

There are 3 parallel lines, one switches the scanner on, reads the code for product ID, the centre redirects it to read the price and the last switched the scanner off. The 3 lines happen to be the same as that of the number 6 in the code hence 666.

The RFID or chip, 6 digits for birthday, 6 digits for the geographic location (100sqm) and 6 digits just in case say twins stay in the same geographic location.

The latter is ludicrous as that infers no one ever moves location.

This is the info proffered up in 1991 and I guess not much has changed.

Since then cell phones exist world-wide and in most countries you can be triangulated to within 100 sqm. Most Christians I know have a cell phone.

The only way the mark can apply to the entire world is if it is not literal.

Blessings

Personally, I think it's as simple as this:

We all are marked by sin.. the mark of Satan.

Those that are saved have the Father's name written in their foreheads, (grace) which covers the mark of the beast.

(altho this interpretation would do away with alot of book sales!)

I always look at Matthew Henry as in the time he lived, there was no technology as it is today. Sadly his interpretation is highly focused at the RCC.

You can read it on the blue letter bible

When I see how much of Christendom looks at Revelations & mark of the beast etc, this verse sometimes comes to mind:
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
I know this was referring to the ceremonial law (circumcision etc) passing away or rather being fulfilled, but there is alot of mis-focus today as well, IMO. "Watch Israel".. "Who is the anti-christ?" ... "When is the war going to start"... "Hmmm... I heard of plans to rebuild the temple".. and this topic, literal things being the mark of the beast.

Where did Jesus say that literal things would cost us our salvation? Where in the NT does it say that Israel is still "God's Chosen?" This all still has flavor of the "old law"... and it can cause us to lose our focus and become bound.

You have to remember who he was talking to. Jews. And he plainly states that the number is the name of a man. Hebrews KNEW exactly what he was talking about when he said to number his name. As far as i know we dont number names anymore.
