The Mark of the Beast
In Revelation 13:16-18, we read, “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.” The NIV and the Amplified read like this “so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.”
The mark is the name or the number of the beast. There has been much speculation over what “the mark of the beast” is in recent years. There has been much talk about it being an “implanted computer chip.” Is an “implanted computer chip” a mark? Is it a name or number? No.
Why would anyone take this mark in their forehead or in their right hand, when knowing that this is the mark of the beast? Most Christians and many of other beliefs or persuasions have heard of this number and know of its implications. How does the beast get the earth’s inhabitants to take this mark?
When we think of this number “666” we have the idea that it will be just like this - 666. But could there be a way in which to camouflage and disguise this number so that it is not readily apparent and would be more easily accepted without actually realizing what one has done in taking this mark upon your right hand or in your forehead?
We are told in Revelation 12:9 that “the great red dragon was cast out (of heaven), that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels with him.” We are warned: “Be not deceived” (1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Corinthians 15:33; Galatians 6:7). I do not think we are given such a warning so many times if there was not the danger of us being deceived, do you? "To seduce [to lead astray], if it were possible, even the elect" (Mark 13:22).
In Genesis 3:1 we read, “The serpent was more subtil [Subtle – hard to grasp, difficult to define or distinguish, elusive, ingenious, cunning, clever, working insidiously, secretly or imperceptibly. Webster’s Dictionary] than any beast of the field which Yahuwah Elohim had made.” We understand that this is describing the Devil who was using the serpent as his medium in conversing with Eve. Today we find the Devil is using humans to convey his very subtle temptations to others without us even being aware that there is such a being. He works in the dark in order to prevent us from becoming aware that he is behind his insidious deceptions.
To illustrate how he works, let us compare his techniques to that of cooking a frog. If you want to cook a frog how do you go about it? Being an amphibian, the frog’s body temperature adapts to the surrounding temperature. If you were to try to cook a live frog by throwing him into a pot of boiling water you would probably fail. The shock would send him jumping out of the pot. But if you were to place that frog in a pot of tepid water and turn on the heat you could cook him to death because the temperature would gradually increase until he would be well done.
Such are Satan’s methods by which he is deceiving the entire world, and so it is with how he is preparing mankind to accept the “mark of the beast.” Even today that mark is being acknowledged in different segments of this world’s population without most even being aware of its implications. It is not being implemented in the right hand or in the forehead at the present time, but slowly Satan has been introducing his mark with his number embedded in it to the world and for most of us, we are totally unaware of what has been happening right before our eyes, and he has been doing this for centuries. His mark is looked on with favor by many who would and should oppose it if they knew what it was about.
I tried to explain what it was to a lady recently and she became quite irate with me. The Devil has people, even supposedly good Christian individuals, defending his mark! How could that have happened? These are not illiterate and ignorant people who are being deceived. They are intelligent and well-informed but nonetheless deceived. We are indeed no match for Satan’s subtle temptations. We can only come to an understanding of the truth if we are willing to be taught by the Spirit of Elohim (John 16:13).
We are warned of the “mark of the beast” in Revelation 13:15-18. If you have studied our chapter on Revelation 13, you will remember that the second beast of Revelation chapter 13 was identified as Satan. So the “mark of the beast” is the mark of Satan in reality. It contains his name and his number (“666”). In the occult world “666” is known to be the number of Satan.
You are invited to visit the following link on our web site which discusses who the second beast of Revelation 13 is in detail, which we will not be repeating in this discussion. http://www.globalimpactstudies.com/chapter-11---revelation-chapter-13.html I believe all the evidence contained in Revelation 13:11-18 clearly shows that this beast is Satan and no one else, even though there is a multitude of opinions who the second beast in Revelation 13 is. Satan meets every specification given in Revelation 13:11-18 and this portion of Scripture is one of four sections in the books of Daniel and Revelation that deal with Satan when he makes his personal appearance on the earth.
We are told that Satan “deceives the whole world.” He was able to deceive one-third of the angels in heaven (200,000,000 [Revelation 9:16]). He has had years to prepare for the times in which we are living and has set the stage for his greatest deceptions which are still to take place in the future. So let us look at one of his master deceptions.
How would you go about getting the whole world to accept your “mark” if you were Satan? You would first want everyone in the world to recognize your mark prior to implementing it, so there would be no shock involved like the live frog being put into the hot water. You would program people to associate it with something good and universal. Make it so commonplace that people will not give it a second thought when it is made the mark by which you can buy and sell. It would be a universally recognized symbol.
Has Satan already done this? What mark or symbol is universally accepted and used throughout the world and even within many religious affiliations? This will offend many because no one wants to be deceived and then have to admit to it. And when you find out you have already been duped, you will find yourself upset with what this article is saying. Better to be offended than lost!
The truth cannot be presented without giving offense to some. Paul asked in his letter to the Galatians, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” (Galatians 4:16). Over the years I have been offended many times when I would discover that what I had accepted as truth was not the truth that could be supported by the Bible. Change does not come easy for any of us, but if we desire to please only Elohim, we will want to know the truth on all matters no matter how offended we may become.
In 2 Thessalonians 2:13 we are told “Elohim hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief in the truth” (emphasis added). Paul told the Thessalonian believers “And then shall that Wicked (Satan) be revealed, whom Yahuwah shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders [Revelation 12:9, 13:13-14], and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause Elohim shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:8-12, emphasis added). It is the truth that sets us free from the lies and delusions that Satan is deceiving the world by (John 8:32). “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). It is not that Elohim has kept that knowledge hidden from them, but the rest of Hosea 4:6 goes on to say “because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee” (Hosea 4:6, emphasis added). Elohim is not willing that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9), but when He shows people the truth, and people reject it, what more can He do?
I do not know if there is anyone on this earth that has not seen the symbol shown below? It is seen in different colors and arrangements and sometimes with other symbolism with it. It is known by a number of names. The six-pointed star, the Star of David, the Seal of Solomon, the hexagram, the Talisman of Saturn, the Star of Remphan, the Star of Chiun to name some of them.
This article will show you the origin of the six-pointed star, its meaning, and its wide usage in the world today and in the past. This article is not meant to be critical but to be informative so you can make your own enlightened judgment concerning this most important topic. Remember the whole world is being deceived by the Devil or Satan (Revelation 12:9). It is the truth that sets mankind free (John 8:32) from the deceptions of Satan and there is nothing that he hates more than to be revealed for what he is and what he is doing. The light of truth scatters the darkness of error! This most important subject must be made known for the implications of what this article contains are beyond our comprehension. The six pointed star has implications that carry far beyond just the symbol seen and is connected with a certain day of the pagan Gregorian calendar.
To begin with, the hexagram is found at the north pole of the planet Saturn and is formed there by the magnetic field surrounding Saturn which diverts the solar flares and solar eruptions around that planet. The six pointed star, Saturn, Saturday, Saturnalia and Satan are all connected.
We find the mention of the Star of Remphan in the book of Acts when Stephen is taking the Pharisees to task and reciting their history: “Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for as for this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their hands. Then Elohim turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O you house of Israel, have you offered to Me slain beasts and sacrificed by the space of forty years in the wilderness? Yea, you took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan figures which you made to worship them” (Acts 7:40-43).
Even in the wilderness, Israel was worshipping the gods they had probably been worshiping while in Egypt, like the star of Remphan. In Exodus when Elohim is telling the nation of Israel the Ten Commandments, He begins by saying “I am Yahuwah thy Elohim, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me” (Exodus 20:2-3). Elohim said this knowing that other gods had been worshipped in Egypt by the descendants of Jacob, and He wanted the nation of Israel to realize that He was not like the other gods they had been worshipping in Egypt. He had brought out the children of Israel in order that the world might know His name. In Romans 9:17 we read, “For the Scripture saith unto Pharoah, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might show My power in thee, and that My name might be declared throughout all the earth.” And yet the Hebrews would not even speak His name because they thought it too sacred to be spoken. They failed Elohim in not making His name (Yahuwah) known “throughout the earth.” They knew the names of the gods of Egypt which were Moloch, Chiun and Remphan and a host of others, but they did not know the name of Elohim and for the most part neither do we because Satan does not want us to know that name which means “the Eternal Self-existent One.” Satan hates Yahuwah and knows that when we understand what His name means his power over us is broken.
In Amos 5:26 we read, “But you have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which you made to yourselves.” Israel had made the star god Chiun their god. Israel today flies the six pointed star on the national flag, but is that the symbol Elohim used to denote Israel? There is evidence that Israel when in apostasy worshipped the star god Chiun or Remphan. Some use the Menorah as the symbol for the nation of Israel, but is that the symbol Elohim used to refer to Israel? I find evidence in the Old Testament that Elohim referred to Israel as the vine and the olive tree and sometimes as the fig tree which Yahushua also used to illustrate a lesson during His days on earth. See Matthew 21:18-21. See Haggai 2:19, Romans 11:17, 24, James 3:12, Joel 2:22, Psalm 128:3, and Habakkuk 3:17 to name just a few.
It was Solomon, the wisest man on earth, who failed to follow the instructions Yahuwah had given about marrying outside of the nation of Israel and what would happen. “For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods” (Deuteronomy 7:4). Evidently Solomon thought himself exempt from following the instructions given to the nation of Israel by Yahuwah. A warning we should take heed to ourselves; no one is exempt from following the instructions given to mankind by Elohim. It was Solomon who reintroduced the star god Chiun or Remphan into Israel. It was not King David!
The star of Remphan, which represents the god Saturn, also called Chiun was worshiped by the Israelites in the wilderness.
As a result of Solomon marrying an Egyptian princess, he was led away from Yahuwah and back into the worship of the false gods of Egypt. And who did the Israelites worship when they left Egypt? The star god Remphan or Chiun! Satan got Solomon to worship him through false gods.
After his marriage to Pharaoh’s daughter in 922 B.C., Solomon gave himself up to witchcraft and idolatry, and built altars to Moloch, Ashtoreth and Remphan, the ancient Egyptian “star” god.
This is very significant, because Solomon was a man of wisdom, who was allowed to build the temple of Elohim; yet late in his life Satan caused him to build altars and worship false gods, and use the hexagram to invoke the powers of Satan. King Solomon reintroduced the 6 pointed star to the Kingdom of Israel, so the Talisman of Saturn became known as the Seal of Solomon.
The Six-Pointed Star is engraved on the Talisman of Saturn which is used in ritual magic. A bull’s head is enclosed in a six-pointed star, and surrounded by letters composing the name Remphan, the planetary genius of Saturn, according to the alphabet of the Magi.
The bull represents Moloch worship and ultimately, Satan worship.
Satanists, Occultist and Freemasons venerate King Solomon, who owned a magic ring that was engraved with the Seal of Solomon, which gave him power over the invisible monarchy of demons. (The History And Practice Of Magic, Vol. 2)
The six-pointed star represents Satan, not the Star of David. It had nothing whatsoever to do with King David!
For some unknown reason, we find 666 connected to the life of King Solomon. “Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was Six hundred and threescore and six” (1 Kings 10:14).
So it was Solomon (not David) who used the Hexagram. This worship of Satanic false gods angered Elohim so much, that after Solomon died, Elohim allowed for the dividing of the Kingdom of Israel into two parts. The six pointed star equates to 666, which the Bible tells us is the mark of the beast.
It has six points, forms six equilateral triangles, and its interior forms a six-sided hexagon — thus it reveals the number of Satan. The 6 points, 6 triangles, and the 6 sides of the hexagon = 666!
When you profess your allegiance to Yahushua, even in the face of death, you have eternal life. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death” (Revelation 12:11). Followers of Yahushua in the past were willing to suffer the most inhumane death rather than be unfaithful to our Master. We too may be called to share such a fate should we be true to our allegiance to Messiah!
The hexagram or six pointed star represents Satan.
Satan has ever sought to establish his worship on earth. He succeeded at the Tower of Babel and even though Elohim confounded the languages of the people, the people carried away from Babylon the symbolism and teachings that had developed there and which we see in the world today even amid the so-called Christian churches of the world. He even was so daring as to take Yahushua “up into an exceeding high mountain, and showeth Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and saith unto Him, All these things will I give unto Thee, if Thou wilt fall down and worship me” (Matthew 4:8-9). At the end of time Satan will succeed in deceiving man to worship him when Satan establishes his throne in Jerusalem (Daniel 11:45, Ezekiel 28:2, Isaiah 14:13 (sides of the north [Psalm 48:2]), and 2 Thessalonians 2:4). Satan has been worshipped through false teachings, false religions, and false gods, but in the end he will be worshipped as God (2 Thessalonians 2:4).
Throughout the Middle ages the Seal of Solomon (six pointed star) had been used by Arab Magicians, Cabalist (Jewish) Magicians, Druid Witches and Satanists. It is the most powerful symbol used to invoke demons and Satan. It is used in magic, witchcraft, sorcery, occultism, alchemy and the casting of zodiacal horoscopes by astrologers.
The word “hex,” as in to put a hex on someone, is derived from the word hexagram. According to former Satanist Bill Schnoebelen, who is now a Christian, “ a hexagram must be present to call forth a demon” and “it is a very powerful tool to invoke Satan.” It is no mystery that in all the occults, the hex plays a central role in Satan worship and upon and within these covens, human sacrifices are offered to Satan.
3/21 – a human sacrifice is required on the Spring equinox
4/19 – a fire sacrifice and a human sacrifice is to be made to the beast. Note: Oklahoma City bombing (April 19, 1995) and the Waco Branch Davidian siege (February 28, 1993 –April 19, 1993) occurred on this date.
6/21 – a human sacrifice is required on the summer solstice, which is called Litha.
9/21 – a human sacrifice is required on the fall equinox, which is called Mabon.
12/21 – a human sacrifice is required on the winter solstice, which is called Yule.
The seal of the Theosophical Society. The Theosophical Society uses a swastika as part of its seal, along with an Aum, a hexagram, a star of David, an Ankh and an Ouroboros. Unlike the much more recent Raëlian movement, the Theosophical Society symbol has been free from controversy, and the seal is still used. The current seal also includes the text "There is no religion higher than truth." For those wishing to do an in-depth study of the symbolism found in the seal for the Theosophical Society you may go to http://www.esotericonline.net/group/teachings-of-helena-petrovna-blavatsky/page/the-seal-of-the-theosophical-society Every part of the symbol has meaning that you should be aware of and what it is saying. It truly is amazing what we find throughout the world of the occult.
Luciferians do not use the name of Satan. They believe that Lucifer is the good god, and that the God of the Bible is the evil god, such is the depth to which people have been deceived by Satan. Helena Balavatsky who was one of the founders of the Theosophical Society wrote that “Lucifer is the true God,” and she incorporated the hexagram in the emblem of the Theosophical Society which was founded in 1875.
Where else can the six pointed star or hexagram be found? Here you can see the Satanic hexagram prominently placed on the Pope’s mitre, which is shaped in the form like a fish mouth, which the priests of Dagon, the Babylonian fish god wore. I always wondered growing up in the Roman Catholic Church why we ate fish on Friday?
“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.” David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations. Just a side note to say that within the United Nations building it is said that there is a room dedicated to the worship of Satan (Lucifer).
This statue of St. Peter at the Vatican features the supposed keys to the church and a disguised hexagram. Most people would not notice the six points, which form the hexagram. The Roman Catholic Church falsely claims that the church was founded by Peter the Apostle.
St. John Cantius Church in the Archdiocese of Chicago features a hexagram with the Chi-Rho symbol in the middle. It is on the floor of the church.
The Roman Catholic Church Chi-Rho was the mark of the Roman Empire and is used as an alternative to the hexagram.
In the 17th century a family named Bauer changed their name to Rothchild, which means “red shield,” as family patriarch Mayer Amschel Bauer began hanging out a red hexagram in front of their house. The red hexagram was patterned after the red Seal of Solomon. The Rothchilds are Satanists who use this powerful magic symbol on their coat-of-arms. The Rothchild family is ultra-wealthy because their banking schemes have stolen the wealth of the nations, including the USA via the Federal Reserve Bank. They are gathering the world’s wealth, so that they can control the one-world monetary system.
The Rothchilds funded the Zionist movement to create the state of Israel. In 1895, Edmond James de Rothchild visited Palestine and subsequently supplied the funds to buy a great deal of property from the Turks and Arabs to found the first Jewish colonies in Palestine.
In 1897, the Rothchilds founded the Zionist Congress to promote Zionism (a political movement with the sole aim of moving all Jews into a singularly Jewish nation state). The “Rothchild Hexagram” was put on the Zionist flag, which 51 years later ended up on the flag of Israel.
A modern state of Israel serves to mislead Christians, as Christians mistakenly believe that Israel is needed for the fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9:24-27. We recommend you read our study on Daniel 9:24-27 (click on shaded area to go to study) which show that the 70th week was already fulfilled at the time of Yahushua and ended at the stoning of Stephen by the Jews in AD 34. The house of Israel and Judah were already regathered before Yahushua’s ministry began so the end-times regathering of the Jews in Israel is another one of those deceptions that Satan has been so hard at work promoting especially through Christian ministers.
The Satanic Rothchlds put the hexagram on Israel’s flag instead of the Menorah. When the flag of Israel was unveiled, it was met with tremendous opposition from Jews who realize this Hexagram was used in the ancient mystery religions as the symbol of Moloch. The emblem on the flag is a blue colored version of the Rothchild’s “Red Hexagram.” The star is on the flag because the Rothchilds own and control the state of Israel. The six pointed star on Israel’s flag represents Satan, not the Star of David. It was not Elohim who created the modern state of Israel; it was Satan. The hexagram or six pointed star is not exclusive to the state of Israel as we have already seen.
Buddhism: HexagrOM symbol: “OM Mani Padme Hum” is the oldest and most important mantra of Tibetan Buddhism, usually translated from Sanskrit as “OM, Jewel in the lotus, Hum.” The “jewel in the lotus” may be considered as enlightenment arising in the lotus of human consciousness. This is the holiest of Tibetan mantras, associated with the bodhisattva (enlightened being) Avalokiteshvara, and is an expression of compassion as well as a longing for liberation and enlightenment.
In the Hindu religion, the hexagram is called the Shatkona and is equivalent to the symbolism in magic. The Shatkona is the combination of the Shiva kona (trikona, triangle), the symbol of the god Shiva, representing the element of fire, and Shaki kona, representing the element of water. The two components symbolize man’s position between earth and sky. Together they represent the union of male and female, and the heart chakra.
This symbol is known in Arabic as the Najmat Dawud (Star of David) or Khatem Sulalman (Seal of Solomon). It is present in Islam mosques, on the Dome of the Rock and the Dome of the Chain on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It is geometrically represented in a cube, which Muslims worship in Mecca at the Kabbah Allah black cube.
The hexagram is also used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in its temples and in its architecture. They say it symbolizes God reaching down to man and man reaching up to God, the union of heaven and earth. In reality they are a false religion that was created by the Freemasons.
In Freemasonry you see the hexagram hidden in their compass and ruler design, and on their temples. By the way, the streets of Washington, DC are also laid out in like manner of the compass and ruler. At the lower levels, Freemasons are not made aware of it being a Satanic secret society. At the 32nd and 33rd degree levels of Freemasonry, their god is revealed as Lucifer, the light-bearer. The six pointed “Blazing Star” points to the deity they worship, Lucifer. Through the Freemasons, the evil elite draw in the best people in society and promote the ones who conform to their will. This helps them build levels of control, as many of these people run corporations and governments. King Solomon is the most important figure in Freemasonry because he fell away from God (Elohim) and worshipped false gods, and he used the six pointed star to invoke the powers of Satan.
The hexagram is used by the New Agers. It is used on their COEXIST bumper stickers, which prepares the world to put away the differences of their beliefs in the name of peace. Rock stars like Bono of U2 promote the COEXIST theme to mislead people.
Christians have been greatly deceived regarding the Satanic power behind the hexagram. The Messianic movement heavily promotes the falsely called Star of David as the hexagram which there is no Biblical or historical proof and as has been shown in this article is heavily into occult practices and beliefs. False prophets such as John Hagee use the symbol. No matter what their profession or belief, the six pointed star is associated with Satan. One cannot simply make something “good” that has been and still is associated with evil.
The most occult symbol of all its symbols is worn as a charm by countless Christians who naively believe that it is a harmless token representing the chosen people of Elohim and hope that it will bring a kind of blessing on themselves. A talisman (charm associated with the occult - hexagram) is an object which is believed to contain certain magical properties which provide good luck for the possessor or possibly offer protection from evil or harm. Those who speak against it are labeled “racist” or “anti-Semitic” due to the world’s infatuation that the six pointed star is somehow Jewish when it can be clearly seen that it was used long before the Jewish nation even existed as the symbol for the star god Chiun or Remphan.
From all the evidence presented we must conclude that it is an apostate symbol belonging to the occult and totally foreign to the Bible and is in fact associated to the pagan worship of false gods and is as offensive to Elohim today as it was back in the times of ancient Israel.
The Satanic hexagram is used throughout the cultures of this earth. As you go about life, now that you have your attention drawn to it, you will notice how many times the hexagram shows up in every area of our life.
On the one dollar bill, a hexagram is formed when the outline of the pyramid and surrounding letters are traced. Freemasons have had a great hand in what is perceived as the American Government.
Here it is on the Great Seal of the One Dollar Bill. It is above the eagle’s head formed by thirteen stars.
This is the logo of the Goals 2000 Education Curriculum implemented under the Clinton administration. All six points focus on self-glorification through the tree of knowledge. Look closely and you will see three 6’s in the logo, where the inner circle spins off three times.
Bristol-Myers Squibb is a global biopharmaceutical company that provides drug therapy instead of prevention. Their logo features the hexagram, though it is hidden, so a faint red background was added to help you see it.
The Star of Life featuring a serpent on a pole should give you a clue. Our medical care which is controlled by the elite so that the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Medical Association promote a drug-oriented science, and not the basic preventative nutrition. And now they will dictate who lives and who dies with ObamaCare.
AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Organization Committee lobbies to ensure U.S. support of Israel. This allows them to control the Middle East.
The World Jewish Congress is an organization that lobbies to ensure world-wide support of Israel. The hexagram was adopted by the Zionist Organization at the First Zionist Congress in 1897 as mentioned earlier in this article.
This is the Freemasonry symbol of the Baden Powell Royal Arch Chapter.
This is the Freemasonry symbol of the Prince Henry the Navigator Chapter.
This Freemason’s symbol says “Si talia jungere possis sit tibi scire satis“, which means “If thou canst; comprehend these things, thou knowest enough,” which once again focuses on Satan’s Tree of Knowledge instead of the Tree of Life of the true Elohim.
And the one we see nearly every day of our lives here in the U.S.A. at the local Walmart Store. Whether this is a hexagram or a sixpoiinted star or not is debateable. There are six points and with what we know about the schemes of Satan it is quite plausible that it is a very subtle one to accustomize us to seeing this and to think nothing of it when the time comes for implementing the "mark of the beast."
The hexagram or six pointed star has been used and is still in use in many cultures throughout history. The hexagram can be found on coins, buildings, statues, paintings, etc., in Arabia, Carthage, Constantinople, Cyprus, Egypt, Iran, Ireland, Japan, Lebanon, Mexico, Mongolia, Romania, Rome, Russia, Spain, Turkey and Wales and others.
We can see that Satan has been very busy sowing his deceptions which will meet their climax when the mark of the best is set up. It is now accepted in nearly every segment of society and in the religions of the world and will be a very easy task to implement his mark on mankind when the time calls for it to be placed in “the right hand or in the forehead.”
I also understand that the six pointed star or hexagram is seen in the Harry Potter movies acclimating the youth of the world to the occult. Few realize the danger associated with the hexagram at this point in time. A man sent me this picture taken at Christmas time from Disney World with the hexagram displayed. He was showing his grandson how to use "street view" on Google Maps when he came across this. Very sublimely Satan is setting us up for his great deception. We will continue to add more pictures and where they are found as time goes by.
The hexagram or six pointed star is not exclusive to the nation of Israel. It was associated with demonic activities long before it became the emblem flown on the flag of the nation of Israel. We are told that the Devil is deceiving the whole world and this is just one of those deceptions he is using to deceive us and promoting his mark so that it will be readily accepted in the future when the time comes for it to be implemented throughout the world as “the mark” which will enable men to “buy and sell.”
Now that you know what the "mark of the beast" is, I want to tell you how you can avoid receiving it. Just knowing what it is, does not prevent you from receiving it. You will not be able to "buy or sell" unless you receive the "mark of the beast." How great is your confidence in Elohim? Do you have an intimate personal relationship which is what the word "know" implies when it says "know Yahuwah your Elohim"(Ezekiel 22:16, 22; 23:49; 24:24), or do you just have a profession? A profession is not going to get you through the "time of trouble." Genesis 4:1 tells us that "Adam knew Eve" and as a result of "knowing" her, she conceived a son. It was the most personal and intimate relationship known to mankind that brought forth that son and so it must be with us if were are going to go through to the end and see Yahushua return in the clouds of glory to redeem us and take us from this earth.
"Trust in Yahuwah, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed" (Psalm 37:3). The Amplified Version says it this way, "Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in Yahuwah and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed" (Psalm 37:3), And if you have not tested Elohim's faithfulness in His Word beforehand how will you develop that reliance and confidence during a "time of trouble" such as the world has never seen?
So now before that time of trouble begins "Remember [earnestly] also your Creator [that you are not your own, but His property now] in the days of thy youth, before the evil days come or the years draw near when you will say [of physical pleasures], I have no enjoyment in them" (Ecclesiastes 12:1, Amplified Version). "Seek you Yahuwah while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near" (Isaiah 55:6). That confidence, reliance and dependency we shall need must be obtained now. Today is the day of salvation. Do not put off any longer that decision to follow Elohim in all things no matter what. "Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision" (Joel 3:14).
That confidence, reliance and dependency is obtained through daily sitting at Elohim's feet in Bible study and in prayer and sharing what you obtain from the first two items. We cannot have confidence, reliance and dependency in someone Who we do not know intimately. It is our privilege to enter into a relationship with Elohim hitherto unknown to most of us. We must have it, and Elohim is more than anxious to have that relationship with us. Some of you can relate to what I am going to say. Maybe when you were young (younger than you are now), you "fell in love" with someone you thought was special. There was nothing that could keep you apart and you made time to be with that special someone. That is what I am talking about with Elohim. There is NO ONE that can be compared with Him! "To whom then will you like Me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One" (Isaiah 40:18). Let Elohim be not a stranger to you any longer. He is longing to enter into a relationship with you which will never end! "Yahuwah hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee" (Jeremiah 31:3). I hope we can all relate to this kind of love that Elohim is drawing us with. Let us yield to that love and come to Him just now!
