What will the mark of the beast be?

MORIEL MINISTRIES > BE ALERT! - By Scott Brisk - February 24, 2009 Each time I send out an alert concerning technological advances such as those covered below, a number of people send me information or links as to what they think the mark of the beast may actually be. There are in fact, a number of different and interesting interpretations and not all of them involve some type or form of technology. At the first coming of Christ, very few if any had interpreted the scriptures correctly, as to how they would be fulfilled. That should be a great lesson to us and I always take heed concerning that fact and am comfortable in not understanding every prophecy regarding Christ's second coming. It should be a warning sign when someone claims to have 'everything figured out'. As far as I am concerned, the jury is still out on what the mark of the beast will actually be and if it will be a worldwide or localized Middle Eastern event. I definitely lean towards it being worldwide yet I am open to the fact that it may not involve some sort of technology. However, technology is already being implemented to monitor those deemed extremists, and I believe that will eventually and unfortunately include Bible believing Christians. Another point is that some may say that as long as we are law-abiding citizens as we should be if we are Christians we should have nothing to fear regarding laws or technology. As Romans 13:3-4 tells us: For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. ... This is obviously true, however, anything fallen man can use for good he can also use for evil and we are about to enter the most evil time in the history of the world, and I do not trust anything our leaders tell us regarding what or why they do. Beyond that, the evil one is not omniscient as God is and I believe he and the powers and principalities with him are a motivating factor behind much of this surveillance society. I have always envisioned a day when tracking technology would be used to stop the spread of the gospel and imprison believers. That said, I could see a day where the world cries out for the mark. The rising tide of lawlessness and never ending monetary scandals where people lose their life savings should give us a clue as to why. I have heard a number of people ask as to why the authorities have blundered so badly in allowing these scandals to happen under their nose for so long, and my thought is this is the perfect scheme to further implement their long term desire for a one world, cashless system. Beyond this, I pray that those reading this have already believed in their heart that God raised Christ from the dead and have confessed this with their mouths as they are saved (Romans 10:9). If not, today is the day of salvation. May the Lord bless you and keep you, BE/\LERT!
