A mark on the forehead

A mark on the foreheads

 

A Mark Upon The Foreheads

 

 

          It is not the lie that pass through the mind, but the lie that sinks and settles in it, that does the hurt. As we have been wrongfully taught about the anti – Christ, we have all grown with a secret unholy fear for this character, and his impending ‘persecution’ of the church.

          Our fear takes its root in our inability to study carefully, all that God is capable of doing; we have magnified beyond normal, the activities of the devil, while we underestimate the power of God. It is a pity that we have all majored in the minor as touching this topic; forgetting that God made the devil/Lucifer too.

          John Wesley once said that we should try all things by the written Word and we should all bow down before it. May I call your attention to the very first mark placed upon man in the bible?

‘…Then the LORD put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him’    - Genesis 4:15

God and not the devil placed this mark, and it was meant to protect Cain from death. We were not told which part of his body the mark was placed, but it was a mark from God.

More error has been committed because many can not understand the things of the Spirit, neither can they untie the coded truth. Therefore, we keep hearing 666 or the mark of the beast. Tracks, bulletins, magazines, films, etc have been made to propagate and imprint the terrible allusion of the antichrist upon the people’s mind. But the bible did say that, ‘ 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

                The number of the beast is the number of a man, which means there is a significant relationship between the number of the beast and that of a man. Secondly, this mark of the beast was placed in specific parts of a man, namely the right hand or foreheads.

‘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’ – Revelation 13:16

 

 

All counterfeits depend on the originals, of which they are negative copies. The good news is that ever before the mark of the beast, there was the mark of the Father. It is the left – overs, those that would not accept the mark of the Father, that are made available to receive the mark of the beast. Catch this!

          A shadow of this truth was given to Ezekiel, a type of firstfruit of the mark.

‘And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. – 9:4

As it was in those days, so it is now. Those that cry and lament over the present situations that ravage the church, are qualify to receive the Father’s mark. Grace will always go ahead of wrath – ask Lot in Sodom.

          May you never take the mercy and the grace of God for granted. The angel that Ezekiel saw marking the people of Jerusalem is at work again, and he is at work NOW! Hear John;

‘And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in the foreheads.

                                                                                      Revelations 7:2 – 3

From these scriptures, we can confidently say that it was God that first mark His people on their foreheads, before the devil marks the ‘rebellions’ too. Perhaps, you might ask why the foreheads. To understand why, you must know that your mind is not on your chest, which is where your heart is. Your mind is located at your forehead. Moreover, your mind is the seat of your Will, Emotion and Intellect. Therefore, God wants to take control of it by marking it with a seal. The 144,000 saints that stood with the Lamb on Mount Zion have the Father’s Name written in their foreheads (Rev. 14:1). Their minds are fixed (sealed) on how to hallow the Father’s name; they have no business with the beast or its mark.

‘Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus’          - Philippians 2:5

This is the Father’s seal. Now that the church is running after the world, where is your mind turned to? Do you love to see Babylon enthroned on the altar and her stylish enter attainment (entertainment = trap) or you lament for the desolation that her presence has brought to the altar?

          However, the story is not the same with the devil; for he will have authority over people’s activities (right hand) and their minds (foreheads). Anti – Christ are men (and women) which love to stand in the place (instead) of Christ Jesus, and not necessarily opposing Christ, as we were taught by tradition. This spirit of anti – Christ love to be worshipped, this is an acid test to identify one. ‘Little children, it is the last time: and ye have heard that an anti – Christ shall come, even now are there many anti- Christs; whereby we know that it is the last time’ - I John 2:18

The spirit of anti – Christ will always need the body (mind) of a man, for the number of the beast is the number of a man.

Here is wisdom; if you refuse the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, you have refused the Father’s seal. Refusing the Father’s seal will make you available to receiving the mark of the beast. God is not respecter of any person, so is the devil. Anyhow there is a mark set for your forehead.

Beware and be wise.

Nice simple faithful hub. At last some perspective on the mark of the beast instead of the usual church hysteria. I have long grown tired of the continual search to find the mark as some RFID microchip implant, or the identity of some future anti-christ or claims that he will sit as the head some future European/Roman Empire. Excellent hub. Thanks.

This is the best and most well rounded teaching on the true significance of the "mark" referred to in Revelation I've seen. Yes! God puts his seal on people, too. Excellent lesson from His Word to "replace" the horrible misinterpretations out there. Thanks for finding me on HubPages.

Thanks Larry, there are two marks inevitably made ready for mankind; the Father's mark and the mark of the beast called anti - christ. If you are a child of God, you need not worry about the other lesser mark - Amen brother!

I KNEW Obama was evil!

What are the government insiders talking about the plans for the Mark of the Beast System? You MUST be ready to prepare you and your family for this if you witness it to happen. Do NOT ever take the MARK/CHIP/TATTOO on your right hand or forehead no matter the cost. Being killed for your faith in Jesus Christ is your only way out of the tribulation which could be really really soon!

I found your website when I searched for information on being marked on the forehead. I thought you would find it interesting that Jesus came to me in the form of three faces up to my forehead while I was asleep. I then began to pray and ask God why this happened and what it means. This happened in the fall of 2012. As I sat in Easter service 2013 with me 9 year old daughter. The holy spirit began to tell my daughter certain verses to mark in her Bible. She handed me her Bible after the service and told me that I would want to read it. I began to read the marked verses from Chapter 3 regarding the church of Philadelphia and then Chapter 14 verses 1 through 5 was marked that explained what happened to me in my sleep. I am confused as to why I received the mark on my forehead but my family members did not. This past month many tornadoes have come through Oklahoma and near my house. Thankfully, we were spared. I wonder if God protected us through the seal that was placed on my forehead?

Regarding my post, I should have referenced the Chapters were in Revelation. There have been other things happening to me but I am hesitant to share with people because they will think I am crazy! lol I know for a fact, there is a God and He has a son Jesus Christ.

I happened to think that I should clarify the mark on my forehead. There is no physical mark on my forehead but according to what happened to me and the verses that have been revealed, it sounds as though Jesus did something to my forehead.

Sarah, I appreciate your deep concern for the things of God, the mark we are talking about is not physical or natural sign, but the zeal and the eagerness for God, having God being enthrone in our minds which is our foreheads!

Sarah, read carefully Ezekiel Chapter 8, it will explain why you were marked on your forehead. You can join me on the facebook or you can join our group JESUS PARTNERS on the Facebook. God bless you and regards to your daughter - the vessel of mercy!

Currently, educational institutions are offering chip implants. Whatever the mark is, it will be a deception which most feel is security. Its the truth.
