Is The Mark Of The Beast A Literal Mark Or Is It Symbolic? (v.)

In this study, we will learn if we should take the Scripture that speaks about the Mark of the Beast literally or as something symbolic. Depending on how one interprets it will make the difference between heaven and hell. Watch the video to learn more. (To watch the video click on YouTube or Rumble)


Can You Get Saved After Receiving The Mark Of The Beast?

9 And a third angel followed them, calling out in a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image, and receives its mark on his forehead or on his hand,

-Revelation 14:9, BSB

Here, the angel from the Lord is about to reveal the eternal consequences of those who do receive the mark, 666 on their body.

10 he too will drink the wine of God’s anger, poured undiluted into the cup of His wrath. And he will be tormented in fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb.

-Revelation 14:10, BSB

The wrath of God will be administered to those [Romans 1:18], who get the mark of the beast. This is seen in Revelation 16:2, which says, “So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth, and loathsome, malignant sores broke out on those who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.” The ones who don’t have the mark of the beast will not get the sores. It shows a difference between those who have it and those who don’t. The other reality for those who do get the mark is that their destination will be the Lake of Fire. They will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 

Everyone who has and will rejected Jesus, their torment will be visible to God’s holy angels and the Son of God.

11 And the smoke of their torment rises forever and ever. Day and night there is no rest for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”

-Revelation 14:11, BSB

In the Lake of Fire, the ungodly and those who receive the 666 will be in torment for all eternity. Receiving the mark of the beast translates to the worship of the antichrist and his statue, thus making it clear that the person chose Satan over Jesus Christ.

Now, a question might surface, is there is a stronger verse that plainly states that receiving the mark of the beast will prohibit a person from repenting and getting saved? If the verses I mentioned above are not clear enough, then this one will be. See below.

8 And all who dwell on the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written from the foundation of the world in the Book of Life belonging to the Lamb who was slain. -Revelation 13:8, BSB

Once you get the mark of the beast, you will no longer have the opportunity to get your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. It will show that you were never saved and have chosen which side you are on. God’s wrath and hell will be your portion, but the ones with their names written in God’s Book will not receive it. The mark of the beast [666] will distinguish those who are genuinely saved from the fake ones, who claim to be Christians, but are self-deceived, and are headed for hell.

Do Not Receive The 666

Once the person receives the mark of the beast, there will be no more hope of salvation for him or her. The reason is, that the Bible clearly states that worship of the beast is involved with the acceptance of the 666.

The verses in the video: Revelation 14:9-11(a)

9 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, 10 they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11…for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night
