The mark of the beast

9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And 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:

17 And 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.

18 Here 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 13.9-18




In the Bible here, we read about the mark of the beast.  This book of Revelation was delivered to a servant and friend of Jesus Christ, John, who was exiled on an island called Patmos.


Jesus revealed this vision to John as part of a larger vision, of the end of days, which are called by God the "dividing of times."


As a student of the Word and a believer in Jesus Christ, I believe we are in these end days, that we are right in the beginning of what is known as the dividing of times.  This post is not an exhaustive post to explain everything, but over time I will expound on this, and I will share things which have been shut up for eons, but which are now known by many people who have the Holy Spirit, that Spirit of Truth, living inside of them.


The purpose of this article is simply to identify the mark of the beast, based on the description given in the Bible.


When Jesus Christ gave this vision to John, He told and showed John things which caused John to write them in such a particular way so that we today could pick up his letter and look around and observe whether or not we see those things.


If you do not know the Holy Spirit, if you do not know the peace that comes from knowing Jesus Christ, if you do not know your Father in Heaven, then I recommend that you stop reading right now, and go find a church that has a Pastor who loves God and loves people and who loves the whole Bible, and tell them that you would like to know Jesus.  If that Pastor is faithful to his calling, he will tell you about Jesus Christ, and he will tell you about your sin, and about how we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and he will offer to pray with you and lead you into salvation, by believing on Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross on Calvary.


If you do already know Jesus Christ as your Saviour, then I invite you to join me and learn of the things which He has prepared me to share with you.


Pause, and pray.  Ask Him to reveal what I am telling you about, because if it is not by His will, then no amount of explanation or eloquent words will reveal the truth of God to you.  But if your heart is prepared, and if it is in the will of God, then you will be blessed by what you are about to read.


According to what is written in Revelation chapter 13, we read about a beast which is described and identified by several indicators, including its name, its number, its image, and its mark.


There are actually several beasts described in Revelation, and in the book of Daniel, and elsewhere throughout Scripture.  This post is focused on this final beast, and its identification.


The beast's name is WWW.  The beast's number is 666.  The beast's image is presently given to us in the form of QR codes, but these are still developing and will iterate into a more dynamic, talking image, as time goes on.  The beast's mark is presently given to us in the form of RFID tags and GTIN/UPC barcodes.


Let's begin with the barcodes.  Each standard GTIN/UPC (Global Trade Item Number / Universal Product Code) barcode is a printed/displayed series of lines and spaces, with the lines and spaces having varying thicknesses, so some are thick and some are thin.


Every product bought and sold today in supermarkets, online, or anywhere that uses credit cards and is "legally" selling merchandise, has one or more barcodes attached to it, as a means of identification in the global catalogue of merchandise that has been being built for decades upon decades.


Again, this article is focused on delivering a concise identification of the beast and its wares, so I will not go into great detail.  I am merely telling you the bare facts that you can observe and reason about and pray to God about.


You will be able to share this knowledge with others, if you can comprehend it.



Here 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 13.18



A barcode is simply a visual representation of a number.  It is arranged in such a way so that it's easy for a computer scanner to recognize it and interpret the numbers that are (usually) printed underneath the thin and thick lines that make up the barcode, and the lines represent that series of numbers.

Every barcode has the number 666 hard-encoded into it.  If you pick up a bottle of mustard or a pair of blue jeans or a candy bar wrapper that's big enough to fit a standard-sized barcode (there are smaller, truncated versions which do not contain the entire 666), you can easily see that there are three sets of what are called "guard bars" in each and every standard GTIN/UPC barcode.

If you look at the very left side, and the very center, and the very right side, you will see these "guard bars."

A set of "guard bars" is made up of two thin lines with some white space between them.  They are there, ostensibly, to make it possible for the barcode scanners to know what position the barcode is being held in as it is scanned.

It just so happens that the value for the number "6" is represented by two thin lines.

Thus, every barcode which has these three sets of guard bars has three 6's hard-coded into it.


Barcodes have 'evolved' into two main paths nowadays: the QR code and the RFID tag.


QR codes are usually square-shaped patterns that resemble the static on an old analogue television screen when it's not tuned to a clear signal.  If you are already aware of the "guard bars" described above, in the standard GTIN/UPC barcodes, then you will easily recognize those same guard bars positioned in 3 out of the 4 corners of every QR code, again, ostensibly, for positioning purposes, so that scanners know how to properly read them.

RFID tags are the same thing as a barcode, but instead of being read in light, visually, they are scanned electronically, invisibly, via radio waves.  RFID tags have many capabilities that most people do not realize, but the main purpose of them is exactly the same purpose as the regular barcode: to give an item or a person or an animal a "unique" number to be easily recognized in the global catalogue of merchandise to be bought and sold.

In 2003, the United States Government approved RFID tags for implantation into humans, for medical purposes.  Very many blasphemous things have been introduced to society through medical realms, but later exploited to be blasphemous in God's eyes.

Before 2003, there were already thousands of people who had implanted these chips willingly into their own bodies, and there were already thousands of people who had been implanted against their will, some with knowledge, and some surreptitiously, by the United States Government.

Depending on who is advertising these things, you may hear that they only contain a 16-digit number, and cannot store anything else, and cannot be tracked, and cannot do anything else aside from emit that 16-digit number .. or, if you look at the actual marketing materials directly from the manufacturers and peddlers of these things, you can learn that they do, indeed, do much more than simply store a number; they are capable of being tracked locally, remotely, from space, and from the internet.  They are capable of being used as a "kill switch," so that if someone who has access to the system decides you are a threat, they simply click a button and your RFID kills you any of several various ways.  They are capable of storing vast amounts of information, not only limited to medical information, but information about your patterns and locations and history of many things.

RFID tags nowadays are already implanted into billions of people.  Not millions.  Billions.  Willingly, and unwillingly.

Most every member of high government, big pharma, big corp, and many echelons of military are required to have these RFID tags implanted into them.

Many parents have been convinced to implant their children, newborn and older, with RFID tags, for their protection.

Many children have decided to implant their elderly parents with RFID tags, for their convenience.

Many pets have them implanted.

Every time you use NFC (Near field communications), or fly on an airplane today with your official "enhanced" state driver's license or ID card that has the little star in the corner, you are utilizing this RFID technology, and you are gaining access to things in your life that are now today guarded and restricted by this beastly system.

Every time you scan a QR code, to get a free burger at McDonalds, or to gain access to some exclusive property, you are being conditioned to rely on these images, to worship the beast.


The number of the beast is given as 666.  The name is the number: WWW.


To get to WWW, we have to understand how the ancient Hebrews counted, because the Bible comes from the Jewish culture, and it was written largely by Jews, who spoke and wrote and understood Hebrew.


The ancient Hebrew alphabet was used for both the letters in their words, as well as the numerals in their numbers.  So, their first letter, Aleph: ℵ, is also used for their numeral "1."  Their second letter, Bet: ב, is also used for their numeral for "2," and so on.

The sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which is also used for their numeral "6," is called vav or waw: ו, is equivalent to our modern-day "W."

So, W equals "vav" or "waw," and thus, it equals 6, if you were an ancient Hebrew who used your alphabet as your numbers.


Copying and pasting the Hebrew alphabet here doesn't really express the small details and nuances of the strokes of the characters, which look like fancy calligraphy, similar to Arabic letters.

One place you can see the letter "waw" displayed is in the "Monster" energy drink, where the motto is "Unleash the beast," and their logo is an image of three "waw" symbols displayed next to each other, as if it were claw marks from some beast.  This was not chosen ignorantly or unintentionally.



The Bible describes the end times Antichrist in several ways.  The Word of God has sabotaged the plans of Satan.  God has told us all about Satan's wrath and end times fury, before it ever happens.

We can know from the Bible that the Antichrist is made up of an evil triune: the beast, the dragon, and the false prophet make up the Antichrist.

Nowadays, everyone who thinks of their own self as a god, is a false prophet, and is part of that conglomeration known as the Antichrist.

Everyone who leads others into captivity, by leading them into relying on the beastly systems, and by leading them to give their power over to the beastly catalogues, is a false prophet, and is deceived by the dragon, which is Satan.

Everyone who willingly receives the mark of the beast or the image of the beast, which God calls worship, will spend eternity burning in a lake of fire that does never stop burning.


There is no bigger mistake that will ever be made, than to give yourself over to the worldwide catalogue that God calls an abomination.  This is an act of blaspheming the Holy Spirit, because your body is the temple of God, and God is a jealous God, and He wants to put His name upon you, and He wants to give you the name that He has picked out for you, but if you receive the mark of the beast or the image of the beast, you are proclaiming that you are not owned by God, but by man and man's machinations.


Jesus Christ is Lord.
