Is marking of Mark of the Beast is literal of putting a mark in foreheads/hand or just only figurative?
But it is rare to hear the mark of the beast is DEMOCRACY that enables to have a free enterprise TO BUY AND SELL.

That is because the premise is wrong - a dictatorship would be able to control buying and selling, but then the underground economy gets around that.

117 threads is far short of the goal of 666 threads on this topic.

Hello just_truth!

You can decide for yourself whether the mark in the hand or the forehead is literal or figurative. Either this chip technology is an amazing coincidence or it is the fulfillment of God's word. Just watch the videos below of the mark technology. People are already having these devices put under the skin of the hand between the thumb and index finger:

I put a chip in my hand to replace my wallet:

You cannot buy and sell if there is no free enterprise.

how are people going to distinguish between the "mark of the beast" and another mark of some kind? In other words not all chip implants are going to be the mark of the beast. Are people going to have some other kind of mark other than the "mark of the beast"?

Take it as literal since that is the way it is described. And even the Greek word used is literal.

Well, since the scripture states that "without the mark no one would be able to buy or sell," a good rule of thumb then, is to not have anything put on your body that provides the ability to electronically credit and debit your bank account.

This current technology will continue to evolve in preparation for the revealing of the antichrist/beast for when that mark becomes the only valid method for accessing one's bank account.

My question is, how many wear the mark unwittingly thinking it is physical?

Mr. Ahwatukee

I like the way you presented your belief in this post.
Stated with conviction and evidence you believe to support your belief, but also with respect toward those who might disagree.

The description of the mark of the beast points to it being literal.

I've heard many are concerned about getting the Corona virus vaccine, when available, for fear the chip may possibly be injected without a person's consent. I do not believe this to be valid. Taking the mark of the beast would require a voluntary choice to do so.

Scripture associated with the mark, speaks of one's worship of the beast and taking the mark itself. (Rev. 14:9-10) This would seem to indicate that a person will be required to make a declaration of alliance with the Antichrist and will receive the mark as evidence of that declaration.

We have always assumed the mark was for cash purchase debiting purposes. But it COULD mean simply that you can't buy or sell because you need the mark to prove you have been vaccinated. So even if cash or regular credit cards are still fine to use, you couldn't buy or sell unless you have the mark, proving you were vaccinated.

This Bill Gates funded company appears close to having a vaccine. This is an RNA derived vaccine. Meaning it gives instructions to your DNA to replicate antibodies for the virus. I'll post the article, but read THIS paragraph from it:

"The potential vaccine by Moderna contains genetic material called messenger RNA, or mRNA, that was produced in a lab. The mRNA is a genetic code that tells cells what to build — in this case, an antigen that may induce an immune response to the virus."

They would literally be injecting foreign genetic material into your body. I have long thought that the mark will have a satanic genetic element to it. As simply cutting out the mark would have no effect on the genetic material that is now in your cells, and therefore those who receive it are irredeemable.
