MARK OF THE BEAST:
IT'S HERE, AND IT MIGHT BE ON YOU
What you may not know about it, and its purpose, and its association with the behavior of buying and selling
VIDEO: The Reality Of The Sabbath
There is a riddle at Revelation 13 concerning buying and selling, and a mark of a beast allows those who worship the beast to buy and sell whenever they like. To crack the riddle, we have to correctly interpret the words wisdom and beast, and determine why buying and selling is related to a mark.
Essentially there is a distinction drawn between those who engage in commercial activity, and those who do not engage in it.
The riddle has to be interpreted by those having “wisdom”. What is “wisdom”?
Pro 9:10: “The fear of Yahuah is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the set-apart One is understanding.”
Those who know Yahuah possess wisdom and understanding because they have His instructions for living: His Torah. They are not lawless, so they obey (worship) Yahuah. They have a sign that marks them as Yahuah’s people. The sign between Yahuah and His people forever is the 7th day of each week, the Shabath (Sabbath, Ex. 31:16, 17, Ezek. 20:12). “Shabath” is a word that means “cease”. Commercial activity comes to a halt. Someone might say, resting on the Sabbath day is 'Judaizing', we're not under the law." The Shabath is mentioned 170 times in Scripture, and 61 of those is between MattithYahu and Revelation (roughly 40% of the total). No mention of a change in the Commandment exists in Scripture, but Catholicism claims the change made by Constantine is their "mark" of authority. Yahusha, when asked about the end of days, said "And pray that your flight does not take place in winter or on the Shabath." (Mt. 24:20) He wasn't referring to Constantine's Day of the Sun, Sun-Day. NekemYah (Nehemiah) was the mayor/governor of Yerushalayim when Koresh allowed the Yahudim to rebuild the city after 70 years of captivity in Babel. Read chapter 13 and note how people were engaging in trade on the Shabath, and why he put a stop to it.
WISDOM SOLVES THE RIDDLE
Understanding the riddle at Revelation 13 is blocked for those who do not have wisdom. Those without wisdom are unable to interpret the mark of the beast, and so are looking for chips and barcodes, neither of which are violations of any Commandments. Engaging in commercial activity on Yahuah’s Shabath day clearly marks a person as being a servant of the beast, the world system serving the dragon.
There are two camps: people who worship (obey) the beast, and people who worship (obey) Yahuah.
The “forehead” is the repository of our thinking; the “right hand” is our outward behavior, revealing what is in our “forehead”.
Those without the beast’s mark do not buy and sell by their own choice, not the beast’s.
Why would some choose to not buy and sell, and who are they?
Secondly, what or who is the beast? The beast is organized in 3 layers of control: clergy, nobility (rulers), and common people (laity).
This beast system is set up as principalities and powers over all nations under its authority, given to it by the dragon (serpent).
The beast seeks worship
(obedience, compliance), and competes for dominance against Yahuah.
The beast endeavors to misdirect all people away from Torah, and hide the true Name of salvation, and His Word (wisdom).
To "measure" or "calculate" the wrong day for Sabbath would certainly be an obvious target for the enemy. Those who adhere to the “Sun-day Sabbath" can "buy and sell" (on the true Sabbath). Those who cannot "buy and sell" have calculated (interpreted) correctly, and therefore do not profane the true Sabbath.
The beast doesn't prevent anyone from buying and selling, it’s a personal choice. Those who do NOT have the mark of the beast cannot buy and sell, but only on the Sabbath, the 7th day of each week. They choose to obey Yahuah, and do not serve the beast.
YAHUSHA IS THE ONLY NAME
Those who have the beast's mark would also have received the beast system's counterfeit name - a Torah-destroying imposter promoted by traditions that include the following, none of which are found in Scripture: Sun-day, holy water, image veneration, prayers to the dead, transubstantiation, apostolic succession, purgatory, indulgences, a trinity, popes, nuns, monks, monstrances, steeples, bells.
PROOF: THEY DON'T BELIEVE THEIR OWN DOCTRINES
The RCC claims power to declare “sainthood” to persons who performed at least 3 miracles during their lifetime. Anyone that can change common bread into the body of Yahusha would certainly be performing a miracle, if it were really happening.
Logic dictates they don’t believe it’s happening, since they don’t recognize their own priests to be saints.
In Yahuah's eyes, all that guard Commandments and hold to the testimony of Yahusha are the first-fruits, since Yahuah refers to such people as “qodeshim”, His “chosen ones”. At the resurrection they will inherit eternal life. His elect do not bow to bread, or pray to the dead.
The elect / chosen ones will not be misdirected, and they are the ones who follow the Lamb, Yahusha.
They guard the Commandments of Yahuah, and hold to the testimony of Yahusha.
They are the Natsarim. http://www.fossilizedcustoms.com/natsarim.html
THE DEADLY WOUND, AND HOW IT IS HEALED
The head (papacy) of the beast (clergy-nobility-laity) was mortally wounded by what is known as the "Reformation". The beast system (principalities over the whole Earth) was severely weakened as the head was exposed to be anti-Mashiak. The nobility turned away, not recognizing the authority of the papacy. This loss of power over the nobility meant the head could not engage in exterminating its opponents as effectively as before. The Inquisition faded into the background, evolving into the highly secretive Jesuit Order, always working to restore power to the papacy by any means under a multitude of "front organizations". The modern culmination of their influence is the United Nations, controlling the world monetary (World Bank), political, food, health (WHO), and soon all religions through its URI. The deadly wound will be healed through the Jesuits' promotion of ECUMENISM, the uniting of the world's religions, under one as-yet unknown HEAD. The protestants will once again be re-united to their mother circus, and the papacy will regain its former power to wage open war on its greatest enemy, the Natsarim. The "Ecumenical Movement" is the healing of the deadly wound to the beast's head. Ecumenical means "the whole world system". Now you know what you are hearing when someone refers to the "New World Order".
It is the Old World Order, the healing of the deadly wound of the beast.
What defines a Catholic?
The Anglicans are protestants, yet are Catholics in their doctrine and practices. The word catholic is Latin for universal.
To be considered a Catholic there is a litmus test concerning a specific doctrine, according to the definition set forth by the Council of Nicaea and Athanasius, the “Father of Orthodoxy”.
A Protestant is a person who does not accept the pope as the head of their circus.
In the Nicene Creed and the writings of Athanasius, the defining aspect of being a Catholic is belief in the trinity.
ATHANASIUS OF ALEXANDRIA DEFINED CATHOLICISM IN 4th CENTURY:
“Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith. Which faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled; without doubt he shall perish everlastingly. And the catholic faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity; neither confounding the Persons; nor dividing the Essence. For there is one Person of the Father; another of the Son; and another of the Holy Ghost. . . . . This is the catholic faith; which except a man believe truly and firmly, he cannot be saved.”
The profession of “ONE GOD, THREE PERSONS” is the Catholic faith.
Logically, any who profess a belief in trinitarianism as part of their Christian faith are Catholic.
Gnostic teachings required adherents to believe or “know” required “knowledge” (gnosis),
and without that “knowledge” one could not “go to heaven”.

Mark of the Beast:
Believing The Lie, As Opposed to Obeying the Truth
A mark (or sign) is a behavior, showing who we obey. Whatever is pleasing to Yahuah stays consistent because Yahuah doesn’t change.
Our enemy wants to divert us from the path (way), and lead us into darkness. Yahuah has instructed us, and we choose to obey or disobey.
Our behavior is a reflection of our set of beliefs. Christianity happens to believe the Covenants with Yisharal (Israel) are annulled, and they are told they supersede the people of the promise, having become “spiritual” Yisharal (Israel). The everlasting Covenant is not everlasting in their set of beliefs. Someone sold them a lie, and until they seek Wisdom (Torah), they will remain blind to that lie.
The idea that the RFID chip is the “mark of the beast” is coming from a strictly Christian point-of-view. They have a Torah-less (lawless) set of beliefs, and base their evaluations of good and bad on human traditions, fleeting perceptions, and decisions made by Catholic councils conducted over the centuries. Since Torah is Wisdom, having Wisdom is the prerequisite to comprehending the “mark”. It’s not “a” prerequisite, it’s “the” prerequisite. It follows that the “mark” would be related to Wisdom in an important way, so having an understanding of Torah gives a person an immediate discernment of what is bound (forbidden) and loosed (permitted).
The Christian set of beliefs does not possess this discernment, and they don’t want it, because they are taught that Torah is a lack of faith.
They believe they are the replacement for Yisharal, the “spiritual Israel”, superseding the original chosen ones. They have been taught the everlasting Covenant has been annulled. What lie could be bigger than this?
They believe the lie, and so they are sent a working of delusion, one of which is that the RFID chip is the “mark of the beast”.
Standing fast in the traditions originally taught is vital to holding onto the Truth.
Paul wrote that a lie would come, and those who had not received a love for the Truth would be sent a working of delusion (2Thess. 2:9-15):
“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power and signs and wonders of falsehood,
and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those perishing, because they did not receive the love of the Truth, in order for them to be delivered.
And for this reason Alahim sends them a working of delusion, for them to believe the falsehood, in order that all should be judged who did not believe the Truth, but have delighted in the unrighteousness.
But we ought to give thanks to Alahim always for you, brothers, beloved by the Master, because Alahim from the beginning chose you to be delivered – in set-apartness of Spirit, and belief in the Truth to which He called you by our besorah, for the obtaining of the esteem of our Master Yahusha ha’Mashiak.
So, then, brothers, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or by our letter.”
The councils of men have changed things to such an extent the “Shabath Day” is thought to be “Sun-day”, the 1st day of the week.
THE SIGN OF YAHUAH: YOM SHABATH (Day of Rest – See Hebrews 4)
The mark of the beast system is contrasted with the mark of Yahuah, and the only way anyone could possibly be punished by Yahuah is for rejecting His Covenant. He has no concern with how governments track, catalog, or license people.
A tattoo would be against Torah, but carrying an I.D. card with a number or encoded chip is not against Torah.
Receiving an implant such as a pacemaker or other health-monitoring device is not against Torah, so it would be rational to extend that to a rice-grain-sized tracking device used for identification. In wars, soldiers wore dog-tags so their bodies could be identified. An implanted chip for identification or tracing is a technological advancement from the dog-tag. Do I personally like the idea? No way! Keep away from me with that kind of high-tech gadgetry. The new ACA (Affordable Care Act) is only a way of humanly-managing populations, and cataloging who the government will treat, so it’s only a mask for eugenics.
Torah doesn’t mention tags, inside or outside the human body.
The behavior of buying and selling at the wrong time (such as on the weekly and annual days we are told to do no work or cause others to work), is a violation of Torah.
The “beast” is not keeping anyone from buying or selling, Torah is doing that. Those not having the “mark of the beast” are free to buy and sell whenever they like. Those who do not have the beast’s mark are controlled by the instruction (Torah) to NOT buy and sell whenever they like.
The SIGN (or MARK) of the Shabath is on those who obey Yahuah. We are the servants of the one whom we obey (Romans 6:16).
If we obey the beast system, the sign of the Shabath is missing. The mark is a behavior, showing who we obey.
Catholicism boasts that its authority is so great it has altered one of the 10 Commandments – and the very Commandment which is a sign between Yahuah and His people forever; the Shabath day. Catholicism states that its “mark” of authority is SUN-DAY.
Unless a person has Wisdom, it is impossible for them to figure out what the mark of the beast is.
To appear wise, they make something up that will be accepted by those who are likewise without Wisdom. A great delusion, a lie to support another lie, is foisted upon them by their teachers.
At YirmeYahu 3, Yahuah tells us He will give us shepherds who will feed us with knowledge and understanding:
YirmeYahu / Jer 3:13-15: “‘Only, acknowledge your crookedness, because you have transgressed against Yahuah your Alahim, and have scattered your ways to strangers under every green tree, and you have not obeyed My voice,’ declares Yahuah.
‘Return, O backsliding children,’ declares Yahuah, ‘for I shall rule over you, and shall take you, one from a city and two from a clan, and shall bring you to Tsiyon. And I shall give you shepherds according to My heart, and they shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.’”
