In the Book of Revelation, the beast is giving out its mark to people and those who receive the mark of the beast belongs to it. Who is the beast and what is its mark?


Revelation 13:1 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. 2 The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. 3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. 4 People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”


The bible says the beast received its power and authority from the dragon which is “the devil or Satan” in the chapter 12 of the same book. So the beast is the representative of Satan which works to deceive people and lead them to hell on this earth. And the beast will put its mark of the forehead of the people who come to belong to it.


Revelation 13:16 It (the beast) also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.


The mark is the name of the beast which the beast put on the forehead of the people. Those who do not receive the mark means the people of God. Since the beast has authority for the people and controls them, those who do not have the mark of the beast lead a normal life of “buying or selling,” which is the basic activity that should be done for life on this earth.

Since they do not belong to the beast and Satan, they would be persecuted in many ways. They are the ones who belongs to God. And the bible says that they would receive the mark of God, or the seal of God on their foreheads.


Revelation 7:1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: 3 “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.”


Here we can clearly see that those who live in the last days will receive a mark either from the beast or from God. Those who receive the mark of the beast belongs to God will put into the lake of fire along with the beast in the end. And those who receive the mark of God will receive salvation. Even though they might be persecuted a little since they do not belong to the beast who is the temporary ruler of the world, they will receive eternal glory from God in the end.

Then what is the mark of God and the mark of the beast? There are many in this world that the mark is some kind of physical signs or symbols such as barcodes that will be put on people. That is not true according to the bible the mark has a spiritual meaning. In Exodus 13, God teaches the Passover is the mark of God that God would put on those who belong to him. (Exodus 12:13, Exodus 13:9) And in another part, God teaches the Sabbath is the mark of God through which God can recognize his people. (Exodus 31:13) To Abaraham God said that the circumcision is the mark of the covenant between God and his people. (Genesis 17:11) Also the baptism, which is the reality of circumcision, is the sign given to those who are to be saved. (1 Peter 3:21)

All these means the commands and laws of God are the mark of God. When we keep the laws of God, the seal of God is given on our foreheads to signify that we belong to God. Then naturally who will be given the mark of the beast? Those who follow the commands and laws belong to the beast? They are given the mark of the beast on their foreheads.

Then what are the commands and laws coming from the beast? Today, people keep the Sunday worship which is a man’s tradition, not the commands of God. Also people keep the Christmas, which also is a tradition coming from man, not from God. Those who keep the traditions of man letting go of the commands of God belongs to the beast. (Mark 7:6-9)

The Christmas originated from the worship of a sun god even from the ancient times. During the time of the winter solstice, people celebrated the birth of the sun and they kept many festivals. In the time of the early church, the Romans also had many different festivals to commemorate the birth of the sun during the time of the winter solstice: Saturnalia, Brumalia, Sigillaria. These are the pagan customs which has its roots in the traditions of man, not in God or in the bible. Therefore, those who keep these festivals will ultimately receive the mark of the beast and they come to belong to the beast. How pitiful it would be if those who eagerly want to belong to God end in destruction by unknowingly worship Satan by following the traditions of man. We must keep the commands of God.

    The Church of God rejects the commandments of men.
    Anything that is not a commandment of God is lawlessness and tares.
    Anything that Jesus did not preach is illegal and you can never be saved.
    After the apostles left after Jesus, tares and lawlessness entered the church one by one.
    Christmas, Sunday worship, Thanksgiving, Easter boiled chicken eggs, these are all illegal laws that are not in the Bible and must not be observed.
    The commandments of man originate from the doctrine of serving other gods.

    There are many Christians today, but they do not regard the Word of God as absolute. They talk about God with doctrines and precepts that are different from the Bible and pursue empty ideals. However, the Word of God tells us that adding or subtracting any word will distance us from salvation.
    Today, most people neglect the Word of God and observe Sunday services, Christmas, and Thanksgiving.
    Even though there are New Covenant Passover, New Covenant Sabbath, and Feast of Tabernacles, which are God's commandments to the Church of God that must be kept, God's things are abolished.

    Christmas is an illegality that cannot be found anywhere in the Bible. All you have to do is live a life modeled after the actions of Jesus, who is the standard for salvation. Jesus’ teaching is to keep the New Covenant Passover, the Sabbath. Christmas is a day created by people to worship the pagan sun god. If you are a true believer in God, come to your senses and obey the word of God.
