  • "6And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." Revelation 13:16-18 KJV

    "He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666." Revelation 13:16-18 NLT

  • Good question! I don't know whether it will literally be a mark in the forehead or something else. I've heard some people say that social security numbers are the mark of the beast. Some denominations think that Sunday worship is the mark of the beast. I think the best plan is to pray and walk closely with Jesus, so that we will not be deceived.

  • I have always heard that it was 666, but recently on a history channel show they said that that 666 wasnt the mark that it was actually 999

  • Like the mark of Cain, nobody knows what the mark of the beast is or was. I have heard on a History channel--or NatGeo channel--that 666 was a numerical code used by the Jews, and that it signified the name "Nero Caesar", who was the emperor who headed the hated Roman Empire. Apocalyptic fiction was often used to by enslaved people as a form of political commentary. The masters would presume that it was about some future time and ignore it. John was exiled to Patmos by the Roman emperor. It makes sense that he would write a scathing novel about Nero's violent destruction. The fact that christians took it as truth...well that's their problem.
