Mark of the Beast
Don't Take ‘The Mark’!

By Ken Raggio

The Mark of the Beast
is coming soon.

You can read the prophecies about the Mark of the Beast in Revelation 13:16-18.
    "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."

Many people realize that it cannot be very long until this prophecy will be fulfilled. We can clearly see that governments and corporations around the world are shoving us in that direction.

Right now, RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) is being implemented around the world on every kind of merchandise, equipment, and even passports and personal ID cards. Far more advanced than the now old-fashioned barcodes, RFID is the technology in the Verichip implantable device, which many predicted would become Mark of the Beast.

Already, millions of animals, wild and domesticated, are wearing RFID chips for identification and tracking purposes. Hundreds of people around the world have already volunteered to have RFID chips implanted in their bodies for experimental and practical purposes.

Tattoo Mark of the Beast NOW, a NEW RFID TATTOO is being applied on test subjects, including people in the highest echelons of business and government.

Regina Dugan, formerly the head of the United States' most highly advanced and top-secret technology department, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), proudly revealed that SHE was wearling the RFID tattoo developed by Motorola. Ms. Dugan is NOW a top executive at GOOGLE, and expectations are that GOOGLE will become a primary proponent of the RFID Tattoo. Regina Dugan revealed her enthusiasm for the RFID Tattoo in a presentation to a TED conference.

If both GOOGLE and WALMART decide to promote the RFID Tattoo, you can believe that it will happen without fail. We ARE NOT FAR from the introduction of this technology for universal applications!!

RFID readers are installed everywhere, including Walmarts and leading businesses. Hospitals are urging their patients to have the chips implanted. It is just a matter of time before you will be asked to receive the implant. Will you take it?

The prophecy in Revelation plainly states that the False Prophet will cause “ALL” to take the mark. "ALL" includes you and me - IF they have their way.

The Mark will obviously be a global application that every man, woman, boy and girl on earth will be required to accept.

But the prophecies come with a dire warning to all people: “Don’t take the Mark!”

Where does the Bible say, “Don’t take the mark?” Well, that is not a direct quote. But it is the inescapable conclusion that anyone should come to after reading the prophecy that everyone who takes the mark is going to “drink of the wine of the wrath of God,” and “be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb… for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night…” (see Revelation 14:9-11).

In other words, everyone who takes the Mark of the Beast will be sentenced to Hell for eternity.

If you can read between the lines, the message says, “Don’t take the mark!”

Many Christians argue that they will be taken to Heaven before the Mark of the Beast is introduced on earth, but the scriptures clearly tell us that the Church will still be on earth during the Tribulation.

The Mark of the Beast will be introduced in the middle of the last seven years of prophecy (called Daniel’s Seventieth Week).

The scriptures are exceedingly clear that the Rapture will occur at the END of those seven years.

Therefore, we will have an epic, eternally-significant decision to make.

We must refuse to take the Mark of the Beast when it is introduced,
even while everybody else is taking it.

Refusing the Mark will require a truly heroic act of faith in God at that time. The evil World Government, under the influence of the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, will attempt to exterminate all who do not cooperate with their new system.
    Revelation 13:15 – “And he had power to …cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
All faithful Christians have already been trained to trust in God through every test and every trial. Ultimately, however, you MUST remember that it is much wiser to SUFFER HARDSHIP or even DIE FOR REFUSING THE MARK, than it is to be sentenced to HELL for taking the Mark.
    Revelation 14:9-11

    "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."
The saints of God will be strong and do exploits in those days (Daniel 11:31). God will give them patience to do the will of God and keep His commandments.

    Revelation 14:12-13

    "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

    And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them."

Will AMERICANS be forced to take the MARK?

The REAL ID ACT of 2005 originally required every American to carry a national ID card by May of 2008. That date has been extended several times, and the deadline now stands at January 1, 2016. That means that Americans will be REQUIRED to carry a Federal ID card in their pockets as soon as the REAL ID ACT is put into place.

The REAL ID card itself will NOT be the Mark of the Beast, but the REAL ID ACT is very likely to be the very mechanism – the platform – for the implementation of the Mark of the Beast in the United States. It will inevitably prepare the way and lead directly to the Mark of the Beast.

If Americans fail to stop the REAL ID ACT from being implemented, or if we fail to prevent a National ID Card from being put into place, then we are only ONE TINY STEP from the Mark of the Beast.

You should search your heart right now and decide if you will refuse to wear the Mark of the Beast if and when it comes. I pray that you will.
