Mark of the Beast
How close is the world to world government that would mandate the worship of the pope as God on earth? I don’t know, but the mark of the beast is already evident. Note in the following passage that the number of the beast is the number of his name and the number equals six hundred threescore and six. One should not be looking for simply three 6’s in a row, the number of the beast is the number “six hundred threescore and six.” That means the beast’s name must add up to six hundred sixty six. The official title of the Pope written in classical Latin is VICARIVS FILII DEI (Vicar of the Son of God). The sum of the Roman numerals in the pope’s title equals exactly 666. Notice that in classical Latin there is a V just before the S in vicarius, rather than a U. That is because there are only 23 letters in the classical Latin alphabet, it does not have the letters U, J, or W as in the English alphabet. The V is used in classical Latin when making the U sound. The values of Roman numerals are: D = 500, C = 100, L = 50, V = 5, I = 1. The values of the Roman numerals found in the Latin title for the Pope added together equals 666. V (used twice, 5 x 2 = 10) + C (100) + I (used 6 times, 1 x 6 = 6) + L (50) + D (500) = 666. The Bible states that no man will be able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast or his name or the number of his name.
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. . . . 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. 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: 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. 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 13:15-18 AV)
The ubiquitous Universal Product Code (UPC) symbol contains the number 666 hidden within the lines of the symbol. The UPC below is typical of the most common UPC seen on goods in the marketplace of today. The UPC has two sets of numbers. Each set has distinct computer codes that are represented by two parallel lines per number. In the second set of codes, the number 6 is represented by two equally thin parallel lines ( II ). Notice that there are three double lines in the UPC symbol that do not have an Arabic number to identify them. One set of lines are in the middle and there are two other sets of lines, one on each end. Those three sets of lines together represent the number 666. The numbers that appear on either end of the UPC symbol correspond to the double line codes that are inside the double line codes for the end 6’s; in the UPC symbol below they are “0″ and “1.” Look at any product in your home and you will see the same hidden code for the number 666.
Why is it that the only lines that do not have an Arabic number identifying are the lines that together read 666? Because the UPC symbol is part of the groundwork being laid to control the world’s commerce. The world’s goods are being marked with the number of the beast. It is a hidden code so as not to alarm the slumbering masses. The Bible states that one day people will be marked with a similar code in their right hand or forehead and that refusal to receive the mark will preclude them from being able to buy or sell anything. The present day UPC is only part of the scheme; the hidden 666 in the UPC is likely needed to match the 666 that will be in the right hand or the foreheads of the people. If there is no match, then the purchase cannot be made. The Bible does not state that the mark will be on peoples foreheads or on their right hands but in their right hands or in their foreheads. Implantable biochips that are capable of storing several megabytes of data equal to thousands of pages of information have already been developed. The biochips would be implanted under the skin and thereafter the person could be tracked and identified anywhere in the world.
Once the governments of the world implement a mandatory identity card, it would only be a matter of time before the convenience of an implantable chip is accepted. How close are we? The Health Security Card proposed by President Clinton was manufactured by Drexler Technology Corporation, Mountain View, California and was in fact a data storage card capable of storing 2,000 pages of information, including fingerprints, voice prints, and pictures.
In the Bible, God explains the consequences of worshiping the beast and receiving his mark:
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. (Revelation 14:9-11 AV)
