What do we know about the mark of the Beast?
The mark of the Beast carries with it the greatest punishment that God has ever pronounced—the punishment of eternal separation from God—and is therefore an issue of vital importance.
It is surprising how many theories there are on the mark of the Beast, ranging from computer-generated IDs to implants of computer chips, vaccines, none of which have any bearing on character, a personal relationship with God, or subjection to the government of God.
All of these theoretical marks may be useful to the Enemy in terms of monitoring human activities and controlling access to resources, but they cannot be the mark of the Beast, if the Beast is the Papacy as we see in Revelation 13.
If we are going to identify the mark of the Beast, then we must do so within the framework of the great controversy and how it affects the plan of salvation. It is through sin (1 John 3:4) that humanity became separated from God, and this rebellion against His government has brought about the consequences the human race is experiencing.
Let no one deceive you, upon this hangs your eternal destiny!
