MARK OF THE BEAST
The word, as used in the ancient Greek language, for the “mark”, as in the “mark of the beast” is charagma. Its literal translation referred to two specific uses of the word. The first is to mint or stamp coins. The second is to mark or tattoo a slave.
The scripture in the Book of Revelation tells us that the mark will be imprinted on the hand or forehead, and that without it a person will not be able to buy or sell.
COVID = Confirmation Of Vaccination IDentification.
To true Christians the danger to us is not some virus that is largely no deadlier than the flue or a common cold. We do not fear what can harm the body. The COVID vaccine is proving, based on first world vaccination side effect reporting systems, to be creating more health damage and death than the virus itself. Again, as believers whatever harm to our bodies it may cause, although unpleasant, is not a concern.
The real problem for a true believer comes from the growing suggestion and implementation of “COVID passport” credentials. True believers are not concerned about participating in public gatherings in the way the world does, so being barred from going there is relatively inconsequential. The danger is the growing incrementalism of their policies. Soon church buildings will be required to allow only vaccinated individuals to congregate. Followed eventually by the inability to even by and sell without “proof” of vaccination.
Along with demands for greater compliance with vaccination are concerns about the lack of a standard vaccination passport. Such concerns as forgeries, or nonacceptance or reciprocal acceptance of the various passport schemes will lead to the inevitable call and implementation of a standardized passport that would resist forging and be acceptable for identification of compliant citizens anywhere.
Christians are not citizens of this world. We are in the world, but not of it. Compliance with the world at the expense of our King is a no-go area of our faith. We are not our own, we were bought at a price. Our compliance has not been authorized by the King. To not be able to buy or sell conjures horrible fears of deprivation in most minds, but we are not to worry about what we will eat or what we will wear. We seek the kingdom in the most singularly devoted fashion. By doing so our King promises to add these things unto us.
The danger in the passport scheme is that even if it is not the actual mark of the beast, it is sufficiently close enough to make it a stepping stone to the real thing, even just through conditioning us to its acceptance. When the actual mark comes it will be an actual charagma. You will marked as property of this world, as a slave. For a Christian to take this mark is to permanently deny Jesus Christ as their King and Savior, and thus lose their place in His kingdom and the Book of Life.
Enter Bill Gates. In collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) he has developed a bio-metric “passport” that would fit the definition of charagma perfectly. It is called an Invisible Quantum Dot Tattoo. The tattoo is made up of tiny semiconducting crystals that glow under infrared light and are only visible using a special smartphone app and filter. The crystals would document the vaccination and whatever other records and information they would choose to put in them. The crystals, along with the vaccine, are imprinted on, and in the skin, in a pattern using dissolving micro-needles made of polymers and sugar.
It is reported that Bill Gates has taken out a World-Wide Patent No. 060606.
Whether this is the Mark of the Beast prophesied in Revelation or not it is extremely dangerous to Christians. “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury...”
