The Mark of the Beast of Apocalypse

What is the mark of God of His People in the Law of Moses?

If we know what serves as the mark of God that sanctifies (sets apart) the Israelites as belonging to Him we can know what the mark of the beast is that sets apart his people who carries his mark, his number, or his name. 
The seventh day Sabbath serves as the mark (sign) of the people of God (Jesus), as it is written in Exodus 31:17. In Deuteronomy 11:18, we read the same similarity of the mark on the hands and on the forehead. The words of God (Jesus) were to be bound on the hands and on the forehead.
Thus, the mark of the beast has to do also with his day which sets his people apart and of his words of blasphemy against God on their hands and forehead.

Exodus 31:12-18 ASV
(12)  And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,
(13)  Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily ye shall keep my sabbaths: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am Jehovah who sanctifieth you.
(14)  Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that profaneth it shall surely be put to death; for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
(15)  Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day is a sabbath of solemn rest, holy to Jehovah: whosoever doeth any work on the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
(16)  Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
(17)  It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days Jehovah made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
(18)  And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, the two tables of the testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

Deuteronomy 11:18 KJ3
(18) And you shall lay these words up in your hearts, and in your souls, and shall bind them for a sign on your hands. And they shall be for frontlets between your eyes.

Acts 26:11 ASV
(11)  And punishing them oftentimes in all the synagogues, I strove to make them blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto foreign cities.

The beast carries name of blasphemy and he speaks blasphemy against God. So, the stateman on earth with a throne (head of a government, per Revelation 13:2, 17:12) that carries the name of blasphemy on his head and speaks blasphemy is the beast. The woman (Babylon) sits on the beast and the carries her. 

I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.  Revelation 2:9 KJV

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.  Revelation 13:1 KJV

And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  Revelation 13:6 KJV

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.  Revelation 17:3 KJV

1

Having his mark (imprint) on forehead

2

Having his mark (imprint) on hands

3

Worshipping the beast and image of the first beast

4

Having the name of the beast

5

Having the number of the beast

(7) Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy; for I am Jehovah your God.  (8)  And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am Jehovah who sanctifieth you. Leviticus 20:7-8 ASV

The signs of the desecration of the beast (Satan): either one suffices for eternal perdition

And that no one should be able to buy or sell, except the one having the imprint, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Revelation 13:17 ABP 

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as worshipped not the beast, neither his image, and received not the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand; and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years.  Revelation 20:4 ASV

Are we already receiving the mark of the beast, his name, his number, worshipping his image?

Remember that carrying the name of the beast, his mark, his number involves believing, teaching, witnessing his blasphemous words against the true word of God that contrast with the mark of the word of God which we must believe, teach, and witness even unto death when confronted by the beast and his blasphemies (Exodus 13:9,16; 31:13,17; Deuteronomy 6:8; 11:18, Matthew 10: 32, Revelation 12:11; 20:4; Revelation 13.)

If we can identify the beast by his number, his name, or his mark, we can compare the word of God against the blasphemous words of the beast. If we believe in his blasphemies, then we have already been in the web of the beast.

And they did obeisance to the dragon, to the one giving the authority to the beast. And they did obeisance to the beast, saying, Who is likened to the beast? And who is mighty to wage war with it? Revelation 13:4 ABP

And it was given to it to give spirit to the image of the wild beast, that the image of the wild beast should be speaking also, and should be causing that whosoever should not be worshiping the image of the wild beast may be killed." Revelation 13:15 CLV

Come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before Yahweh, our Maker." Psalms 95:6 CLV


What is clear about differing doctrines different branches of Christianity from the faith of Jesus? As Jesus upholds Moses as unchangeable or immutable, whoever rejects anything in Moses by false reasoning of the false prophets carries at least the mark of the beast.

THE FORMER CEREMONIAL SABBATHS AND THE FOREVER 7TH DAY SABBATH ARE THE MARK OF GOD

We read in Exodus 13 and Exodus 31 and elsewhere that the Sabbath is the mark of God that differentiates His people on earth.



And it shall be for a sign to thee on thy hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the law of Jehovah may be in thy mouth; for with a powerful hand hath Jehovah brought thee out of Egypt.  Exodus 13:9 Darby


And it shall be for a sign on thy hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes, for with a powerful hand Jehovah brought us forth out of Egypt.  Exodus 13:16 Darby


And thou, speak thou unto the children of Israel, saying, Surely my sabbaths shall ye keep; for this is a sign between me and you throughout your generations, that ye may know that it is I, Jehovah, who do hallow you.  Exodus 31:13 Darby


It shall be a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever; for in six days Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.  Exodus 31:17 Darby


And thou shalt bind them for a sign on thy hand, and they shall be for frontlets between thine eyes.  Deuteronomy 6:8 Darby


And ye shall lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes.  Deuteronomy 11:18 Darby



DO YOU FOLLOW A DIFFERENT SABBATH OR DAY OF GATHERING TO REJECT THE MEMORIAL OF THE CREATION?

It is clear that all of us who reject the 7th day Sabbath by any false reasoning and adopt the 1st day in replacement of the 7th day carry the mark of the beast because the 7th day Sabbath is the mark of the beast.

Can we carry the mark of the God while believing in the blasphemies of the beast? REMEMBER THAT THE BEAST IS VERY ASTUTE AND ALSO TRANSFORMED AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT.

It is not only the mark of the beast. There is also his name, his number.


and that no one should be able to buy or sell save he that had the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of its name.  Revelation 13:17 Darby

And the smoke of their torment goes up to ages of ages, and they have no respite day and night who do homage to the beast and to its image, and if any one receive the mark of its name.  Revelation 14:11 Darby

And I saw thrones; and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them; and the souls of those beheaded on account of the testimony of Jesus, and on account of the word of God; and those who had not done homage to the beast nor to his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and hand; and they lived and reigned with the Christ a thousand years:  Revelation 20:4 Darby
