"And He will cause all, both small and great, rich and poor, free or bond, to receive a mark in their right hands or in their foreheads; that no man might buy or sell, save he who has the mark, OR the name of the beast, OR the number of his name. Here is wisdom, count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred, threescore, and six." Rev. 13:15-18
Over the centuries since John penned the book of Revelation, men have tried to figure out what is and is not the mark of the beast. It is NOT accepting Sunday as the Sabbath; it is NOT the works of your hands; and it is NOT something you will die, physically, for because you refused to take it! Nevertheless, it is very important, because it is one of the few things, which is not so obvious, that could cause you to lose your salvation in Jesus the Christ (Rev. 14:9-11), and hence, die spiritually the second death.(Rev.20:14) This mark will have to fit the definition as given by John, as it is only mentioned in the book of Revelation. It will be something to allow you to buy and sell with, and will put in the right hand or forehead. It is, therefore, an economic device, and it may or may not have something to do with the number 666. Also, note in verse 17, that it will occur during a time period when you will have to have one of three things, not just one, to buy and sell with: the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of the name of the beast. Three things to buy and sell with. This means you will NOT HAVE TO have the mark to buy and sell with. You will have an option to take it and use it. How drastic this option is, is yet to be seen, but you will not die an instant death for refusing to take it.
We now have fulfillment of using the number of his name , 666, to buy and sell with. It is used around the world and you have used it many times, perhaps without even knowing; as each UPC (Universal Pricing Code) bar code , developed by IBM, and put on most products around the world uses a basic 666 system:
It is hidden slightly in the design, but it is certainly there. Just call IBM sometime and ask them how it works. The identical pair of bars that come down a little further than the rest; at the front, middle and end of the code are all 6's. As the computer scans the code, it uses these 6's to tell it when to start and stop reading the lines between them. Hence 666 is used at each beep of the scanner at the stores today, and is part fulfillment of Rev. 13:17! It fits the definition, and it is on all most all products for sell in our stores around the world. Hereby have wisdom.
Next, we now have candidates for the fulfillment of the name of the beast to buy and sell with. (Remember there are two beasts in the 13th chapter of Revelation.) This name might be either Maitreya, Maarrduk, Europe or Rome. (As we believe Europe is a manifestation of the first beast of Rev. 13, and Maitreya/Maarrduk is the main beast.) We now have a currency in Europe with its name, the Euro (Europe) Dollar. If someday this currency becomes the only world paper money, then it fits the prophecy, and it also fits the definition. However, the use of any of these names on a card, used to buy with, could fulfill this prophecy in these times. (It is, also, very interesting that name Europe, as spelled in Greek, counts to 660! This is important as the last symbol in Rev. 13 for 666 could be a 0 and not a 6)
Lastly, the mark , we believe at this time, will be fulfilled in this time period by a coming computer chip implant for electronic banking that will go under the skin of the hand or forehead, if you do not have a hand. This could come out in Europe banks first, and will be marketed as useful for finding lost people, preventing theft and drug trafficking, etc. In the electronics of this chip implant can be placed the UPC bar code 666 system! It can be scanned at the store and function as a debit card does today to allow you to buy and sell. Do not take this chip/mark for any reason! Your eternal life depends upon your recognition that this fits the definition of the mark of the beast! (Update 2017: This exact chip has now been used by a company in Wisconsin, that implanted it's employees who then used it to buy things out of vending machines!)
It is the spiritual power of Maitreya/Maarrduk that is behind the development of this electronic mark of the beast system. It is his mark. If you take this mark, you seal your eternal fate to the lake of fire (Rev. 19:20). You also will have to go through the wrath of Theos on earth, the 7th trumpet. (Rev.16:2) Make no mistake about it, Here is wisdom.
To make sure it is Maitreya/Maarrduk's mark, you must count the number of his name. The name of the beast must count to 666. As we have already stated in this website, Maitreya can not be counted accurately with the numerical system of the ancient Ionic Greek system. However, Maarrduk is a different matter. In greek Maarrduk is Mu, Alpha, Alpha, Rho, Rho, Delta, Upsilon, Kappa and each of these letters when added together count to exactly 666!
Just who is, or was , this Maarrduk? (See that page on this site.) Maitreya currently is the best candidate for fulfilling the prophecy of the beast of Revelation. We have identified the best possibilities for the beast and his mark. We have counted the number of his name, and know where that number is used today to buy and sell with. We know where a name of the first beast is used for buying and selling. YOU must do the rest! You must prepare to avoid taking the mark. You will have to work outside the coming new world order system of the electronic mark of the beast. The task will be difficult. However, you CAN gain victory over this mark, over this beast, over his image and over the number of his name (Rev. 15:2). Get to work and warn others!!!! Be ye so warned!!!
Theos bless your works for his Son, Jesus the Christ. Amen
