"And he causeth [will force] 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..." - Revelation 13:16-17

The "he" in this verse is referring to at least one of two entities if not both of them: 1) the person the Bible in other passages calls "the man of sin" or the "Antichrist" and 2) the united world government that will be in place and he will be the one who controls it. Just a quick note: the latin form of the word "Vicar" is the same word for Antichrist (one who stands against Christ) and remember Rome calls the Pope the "Vicar of Christ". This indicates that Rome (specifically the Catholic Church) and the future Pope will be associated in some way with the Antichrist. Many well meaning Catholics don't know that or don't want to know that but it will be a reality.

Now it says "he" Antichrist (with the power of the world's governments consolidated under his control) will force ALL people to receive this "mark" that no one will be able to buy or sell anything without it.

If you watch the first video clip (before they remove it) you will see that the v-chip has been already implanted in the newest [post 9/11 world] passports and that they will also be implanted in the National ID card (a.k.a Real ID card). Then the next phase is to implant this chip underneath people's skin. Now implantation is a very real possibility. But I want you to know that because the Greek word for "mark" in Revelation 13:16 means "imprint, engraving or tattoo" the final phase of the mark may not be an implant under the skin, it may just be a tattoo like symbol. Also notice that the last part of Revelation 13:17 says "no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or...the number of his name." There's two interesting things to see here. First, see that this mark is the number of the "he" in Revelation 13:16, and "he" is the one who by the power of the one world government at his disposal, will force ALL who are present on the earth at this time, to receive this imprint. But it doesn't mean the type of "force" you're probably thinking of. He will force ALL to receive his mark or imprint, not by guns and threats, but by manipulating reality by using the media (the speaking image of Rev 13:15) and deceiving people into believing that they NEED this mark in order to survive. The Bible in Ephesians 2:2 says that Satan is the "prince of the power of the air", you know airwaves (the media i.e. radio and tv)? Satan is the chief influence on the majority of the world's media sources. Just like Hitler had his "ministry of information" (which controlled the flow of information going to the public), Antichrist will have the media say "you need it for security and prosperity", sound familiar to what the governemt does today? This is happening in Massachusetts with the government imposed and mandated socialist "Commonwealth health" plan. Just like Hitler, they create a problem then they offer their OWN solution and then they penalize you with tax fines etc if you don't comply or go along with their agenda. And Remember Hitler was DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED. Now I'm not against government because I believe the institution was ordained of God (Rom 13:4) I'm just against the criminal elements within government that seek to control eveything and everyone becasue their power hungry. Now secondly, see that this "mark" is not only a imprint or tattoo it's a number. So it's really an imprint/tattoo of a number. But it most likely will not appear to be a number it will be subtle, as that's how the Enemy works best. But much like a UPC barcode (see the photos of the barcodes below) it will contain a number imbedded in the symbol or imprint. If you know anything about the way supermarkets and the process of grocery pricing works, the barcode with the imbedded number (though it's not visible to the human eye) is preloaded with a price and is then scanned at the register.

The one world government at the order of the "he" aka Antichrist may have the "mark" preloaded with a value and will say to the masses "you need this this will take care of your needs. If you don't have it you won't be able to eat, do business etc". The masses will believe this massive lie and will take the mark willingly. All the media has to do is to put the "experts" on and gullible people will look to these "experts" as the authority and assume that "they must know better" and rather than do their homework gullible people will fall for the lies. Therefore Revelation 13:16 is will be fulfilled that "he causeth [by force] all to....receive the mark" because ALL will be forced but they will be COERCED and DECEIVED and as a result of the deceit people WILLINGLY receive the mark.

Notice Revelation 13:18 says, "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 [666]". Again look carefully at the UPC barcode photos carefully. Don't you see the UPC barcode has three #6 patterns encoded(which is shown in red in the photo)? Three #6's = 666. Coincidence or foretold by the Bible? Again like I said earlier the "mark" has imbedded in it the necessary information to work just like a UPC barcode does when it's scanned at the supermarket or one a touch screen finger scanning computer at home. Hence the mark/number is used to buy and sell and without it one wouldn't be able to buy or sell. You will also notice when you watch the first clip below that this chip will be apart of a global market, monetary and communications system which will likely be run from space via international satellite uplink. Now if the final form of this mark looks like a tattoo but works like a scannable barcode, then just like a barcode can be deactivated so that it no longer is scannable, the mark could be deactivated as well. And the video explains that above the earth in space will reside via satellite uplink, the power to turn off all the barcoded like "mark" of all those who do not comply and go along with his plan for the world. The power to turn on and off this mark will be in the hands of "he" which will confirm the prophecy of Revelation 13:16-17. And remember this "he" in the Bible is referred to as the Antichrist. The Antichrist is not yet on the world scene yet, but he is coming and his arrival is inching closer and closer.

Enough about the Antichrist for now. If you want to know more about him pick up a Bible (KJV) and read Revelation and ask God in all sincerity to help you understand the truth. If you still are confused just email me. But we should now ask the question how did the world get to the point where this will be a reality in the near future? Here are some of my observations though I encourage you to do your own research for I may not be all the way correct. In order to get the world ripe for this "mark" these things have to happen for this to unravel. Some of the objectives of those who are pushing for the one world government are:

* Unite all world governments into a one world government

* Since you can't unite all governments overnight a situation had to be created in order to justify the creation of unified one world government

* Create a sitution where you can get the public through the media "experts" to believe they'll be "safer" if they embrace the idea of a National ID (REAL ID) card. Little will the public know that the card will have an imbedded chip to track your every move which will come in handy for the Antichrist when he's trying to capture those who don't comply (Jews and Gentiles who trust Christ as their Saviour during his reign during the time of the great tribulation).

* The national ID card which will be trackable via GPS from space satelites, will lead the way towards a world ID which will have as it's final version the "mark" of Revelation 13:16-17.

* The European Union has been slowing coming together since World War 2. The Asian nations will come together as some sort of Asian Union, the Latin/South America nations will form some sort of South American Union and the North American Union is forming under the noises of the American people as well.

* The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between Canada, the U.S and Mexico is slowing destroying the U.S currency, productivity and sovereignty but that's exactly what the "few" want. They want to collapse the U.S. dollar to justify replacing it with a new one, the Amero. Once the currency collapses, there will be a need to get a new one in order for the nation's commerce to begin again. But if the dollar collapses, it will not only affect the U.S but it will effect all nations that the U.S does business with especially those closest to her, Mexico and Canada. Therefore the only "solution" that the government will push for is the combining of the Mexico and Canadian nations to form the North American Union and they will share the new currency, the Amero.

* If the U.S becomes one with Canada and Mexico to form the North American Union then ALL three nations will lose their sovereignty and America's Constitution and all the freedoms (religion, press, assembly, speech etc) that it enjoys will be null and void under the new Constitution of the North American Union. Of course who will write up the new Constitution, the people? No, it will be written up by those with power and just like Saudi Arabia's constitution, the North American Union constitution may be written without such liberties as freedom of religion. But rather this new constitution may impose pluralism and make preaching the gospel and witnessing for Christ illegal. This is just one of many things that could take place if the Constitution Americans enjoy now is made null and void.

* Each of the international union of nations (European Union, North American Union Asian Union etc) will eventually become one united world government. But in order for Antichrist to have harmony within his government he'll have to unite all the religions and he will do that if he imposes pluralism as law and outlaws all those who seek to "prosilitze" (as they would call it) anyone into another faith such as Christianity does. Antichrist will want total unity and you can't get that unless all religions unite into a one world church of tolerance and mutual admiration.

* "Radical" Islamic jihadist were given a name "Al-Queda" and the war against them is the justification to make these national ID cards. They're "for our protection" as we're told. I'm not trying to downplay the fact that Islam is NOT a religion of peace however, the right people with power and political influence are using "radical" Muslims as they call it, as pawns in their scheme of creating situations that will ultimately lead to Satan's ministers gaining more power and control of the lives of people. I do believe that 9/11 was the result of Islamic terrorists because that is what Islam teaches. Islam means "Submission" it does not mean "peace" and Mohummad (the founder of this oppressive religion) taught that if the world didn't submit through peaceful means, they would be made to by force. Mohammed's goal was to convert the world to Allah by force if necessary. This is what Islam is! I don't say this because I hate Muslims, I say it because I love Muslims and I want them to know the truth that only Christ can save them. But I also believe that an evil element in our government has used this terrorism as an excuse to grow the government. They have done just that and they say these new departments our "for our national security". Remeber every time Hitler wanted to impose his OWN solution he had to first manipulate the masses through the manipulation of the media and information sources to get the people to believe that he and he alone had the solution to a "crisis" that needs solving. The only thing we learn from history is that we don't learn from history as it is repeating itself, just in much more subtle ways than before. Notice how the government used to be called "uncle same" not it's called "big brother". Isn't a brother closer to you than an uncle? See how the government keeps creeping more and more into our lives. This is done with the express purpose of getting things into place so that when Satan's man, Antichrist comes on the scene, Satan will be able to hand over the world to him to rule.

* Things happening the world today are building towards this culmination of the man of sin, the Antichrist having the power to force ALL [those who are here on earth during his 7yr rule] to receive the mark. These are those people who as the Bible foretold will be left behind "because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved" (2 Thess 2:10).

In conclusion: don't take what the "experts" say in the "mainstream" media for for face value. Question their conclusions, do your follow up homework.

It looks like George Orwell's book 1984 isn't just fiction, maybe it's becoming a reality.

  • John 14:1-3 (Christ said He's coming back to bring His own to be where He has been, with the Father in heaven).

  • 1 Thess 4:16 - 5:2 (rapture means "caught up, called out, taken out of the way")

  • Scoffers will come in the last days and mock and laugh at the idea of the rapture, so it seems that the rapture will occur during a time when most of professing Christianity doubts and scoffs at the idea of the rapture (2 Pet 3:3-4). New-Evangelicals (aka today's Protestants)/Catholics deny the Rapture. They think the rapture was made up by someone in the late 1800s as a way to escape reality on earth, which is not true. Also they reject the rapture because they believe the Church is universal and has replaced Israel and national Israel (physical descendents of Abraham) the Jews although they are God's people, will not be raptured because only believers will be raptured. That's why using the phrase "rapture of the church" is confusing and unbiblical. RCC is documented in their own writings to call themselves the chosen people of God, a title reserved only for national Israel. Christians are the children of God by faith in Jesus Christ (Gal 3:26-29) but national Israel the Jews are considered the chosen people of God. "Open Letter to Evangelicals" document signed by over 70 new evangelical leaders including Dr. D. James Kennedy shows that these Protestants agree with the RCC that the promises given to Israel are voided out. Sadly these proves that they believe God is a liar because God made promises to Israel that He would keep regardless of their unbelief (Rom 11). God is faithful even when we aren't.

  • If the rapture doesn't occur until the Antichrist is revealed then true believers are not going to be deceived, as they'll be expecting Antichrist.

  • The Bible teaches imminency (expect Jesus at any time) - Matt 24:44, Luke 12:40, 1 Thess 5:2, 2 Pet 3:10.

  • So many signs to be fulfilled before 2nd Coming when Christ actually steps foot on the earth again and stands on the Mount of Olives (Zec 14:4) and rules from Throne of David in Israel (Isa 9:6, Luke 1:32)

  • But NO signs to be fulfilled before the rapture (Matt 24:42, 44)

  • Either there's 2 events that Jesus is referring to 1) rapture 2) 2nd Coming or there's a contradiction here

  • Jesus says in Matt 24:33 at an hour when we "shall see all these things" we can know His 2nd Coming is at the doors because we'll be expecting Him then. But then He says in Matt 24:42, 44 that we don't know the hour He's coming that He'll come at a time we're not looking for Him.

  • Notice to Matt 24:30 He's speaking to His disciples about the end times/Great Tribulation so why does He say, "they shall see..." Now if it's the disciples who are suffering through the Great Tribulation why not say, "you shall see"? Then 24:31 says the elect (believers) will come from heaven. How could they come from heaven if they weren't already there from being raptured up?

  • There has to be 2 separate and distinct events or there's a contradiction in the Word of God!

  • A post-trib rapture would be a classic non-event if Antichrist kills all the believers (Rev 13:7) during the Great Tribulation. Who is left to rapture?

  • Also Christ said that that gates of hell shall not prevail against the church (Matt 16:18) so the church couldn't possibly be left as prey for the Antichrist during the Great Tribulation.

  • Church (called out assembly), its Christ's body and He will take His body out of the world at the rapture. All believers who are called out to heaven will form the Heavenly church. The church is not universal now but it will be in heaven. Now it's local and visible and independently run.

  • The body of believers that will be raptured and assembled in heaven is also known as the bride of Christ who will be married to the lamb in Heaven and enjoy the marriage supper of the Lamb (Rev 19:9-7). Christ will not leave His bride to be raped and completely wiped out by another man especially Antichrist (Matt 16:18)

  • 2 Thess 2:3 (falling away) doesn't refer to the rapture (caught up) but is referring to Apostasy

  • Some Pastors use 2 Thess 2:3 and Rev 4:1 to support a pre-trib rapture though those aren't the best verses to use for the Rapture.

  • Gen 18:32-19:24 (Gen 19:22)/Heb 11:7 - examples of God taking His people out of the way BEFORE His wrath came

  • Rev 15:7-16:1 - 7 vials of the wrath of God will be poured out on the earth during Great Tribulation / 1st Thess 5:9 - Examples that believers up to the point of the rapture will not go through Great Tribulation.

  • Seals the deal: Matt 24:21 "Great Tribulation"/ 24:29 "Immediately after the tribulation of those days"

  • Matt 24:30-31 - Jesus is coming back to the earth with His saints from one end of heaven to the other. This goes with Zec 14:4 which says that when Jesus comes back to Israel at the Mount of Olives He will have all His saints with Him.

  • Those that forsake all earthly loves and love His appearing receive a special reward if the rapture occurs before the Great Tribulation (2 Tim 4:8). Now if the rapture were after the Great Tribulation, obviously true believers would love His appearing. After they suffered through the horror of the Tribulation what else would they be waiting for but Christ? Obviously this is referring to a rapture that is pre-trib in which those who's hearts are willing to forsake all earthly possessions and pleasures for Christ's appearing to take them up with Him, will receive a reward.

  • Jesus tells a parable (earthly story with a heavenly meaning) - Matt 24:45-46. He wants His children to be found faithful and doing His will at the time of the rapture not be living sinful careless lives as if they have all the time in the world to get right with God and get there act together.

  • At the rapture we will finally see Jesus face to face (Rev 22:4)

  • We will be changed to be like Him (1 John 3:1-3)

  • We will forever be free from sin and all it's effects (death, sickness, tears, the curse) - Rev 21:4


  • 1st Cor 2:9

  • Bible reading/prayer/faithful attendance and involvement in a fundamental Bible-believing/preaching church is essential to living a life that pleases God and shows Him you appreciate the sacrifice He made to give us a home in Heaven.


  • ** For the lost: A sign the Rapture has already occurred: all the babies in the world will be gone because Jesus said children are the kingdom of Heaven (Matt 19:13-14)


  • Matt 24:48-50 - Parable of the lord's evil servants (professing Christians) who deny the rapture ("my lord delayeth his coming") and eat and drink (mingles, yokes up, cooperates) with the drunken (cross referenced with the drunken woman (church) of Rev 17:6. This particular parable could've foreshadowed the current apostasy-the yoking up together of so called ‘Evangelicals' and Rome (the woman "church" drunk with the blood of the saints (Roman Catholic Inquisitions, Crusades etc).

  • John 14:1-3 (Christ said He's coming back to bring His own to be where He has been, with the Father in heaven).

  • 1 Thess 4:16 - 5:2 (rapture means "caught up, called out, taken out of the way")

Friend, what is your hope of going to heaven to be with the Lord Jesus immediately after you die?

The Word of God says:

  • "For all have sinned and come [fall] short of the glory [the standard] of God"(Rom 3:23).

  • "The wages [penalty] of sin is death [eternal separation from God in the lake of fire]" (Rom 6:23a). God must condemn sin and He will in "the lake of fire, which is the second death" (Revelation 20:14).

  • But there's GOOD NEWS: God says, "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool"(Isaiah 1:18).

  • 1 John 1:7 "the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from ALL sin."

  • Because Jesus died in your place, God can righteously and legally forgive you, the sinner.

If you repent (turn from) your life of sin, and trust that Jesus (as fully God and fully man) died on the cross and rose again for you, God will save you RIGHT HERE and NOW.

If you say something like this to God in prayer with a sincere heart He will hear you:



"Dear God I have sinned against you. I'm sorry for my sin. I believe you sent Jesus Christ your Son to die on the cross and rise again from the grave for my sins. I accept your forgiveness and receive Jesus as my personal Saviour. Take me to heaven when I die but until then help me to make you Lord over every area of my life. Thank you God for saving me today in Jesus name Amen"



If you just asked the Lord to save you, that's great news! Please contact me I'd like to be a blessing to you any way I can.

Just some food for thought. Think about it.
