December 20, 2012 journal, God made our eyes in the front to look forward impossible to look backward without turning your body around 180 degrees to walk backward while the mind is capable of going out forward or backward thinking in real or in imaginary terms. A body can see 270 degrees but not 360 degrees. Our vision however is 2020 in the rear. When Chrysler had a tank division a new model was to be paraded for review on a cool day in Detroit. The tank froze up in reverse so they turned the gun around 180 degrees and backed the tank by the reviewing stand knowing that those generals would not notice the difference. After all, tank sales are done in Washington politics not the need for tanks. What can we expect to happen when Hollywood is pumping the money bloodsucking into the minds of our youth? The government fears the returning veterans while the youths are proven to be attacking. is a greater risk for them to watch Hollywood denigration than to be trained to kill in the wars. Every game offered in the toy stores are killing war games. It is only natural for our young people to come out from their television rooms shooting. Besides, God's judgments are on-America for violation of His laws and for killing babies. 40 years of aborting babies as many as 100 million have died and we think God is not going to put a stop to it. We have joined the Antichrist in hiding the atrocities of Russia within the religious community ignoring history and approving Satan verses Christianity. I quote a very important and timely message from a reliable source on Mark of the Beast. And I saw...them that had gotten the victory over the beast, And over his image and over his mark...This study is dedicated to those overcomers during the Great Tribulation period who, because of their love for the Lord and His Word would rather give up their own lives than take the Mark of the Beast. These are the true heroes of the Tribulation period, whom God will richly reward. ...and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which did not do homage to the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their forehead, or upon their hand; and THEY LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A THOUSAND YEARS. (Rev. 20:4)* We believe that both Israel and Christians have been deceived by occultists who would have them believe that the six-pointed star is a Jewish symbol. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is not a Jewish symbol, but an occult symbol. The six-pointed star is a hexagram - a curse mark - no matter what name it may have: Star of David, Solomon's Seal, Double Triangle, Shield of David, etc. When the occult practitioner puts a curse on someone, he uses the hexagram! Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record, that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. (Rev. 10:1,2) The challenge in writing this report was to make a difficult topic easy to under-stand and inoffensive to Israel, for it is not my goal to condemn the Jewish people, but to condemn the 6-pointed star, a curse mark. For God will both bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel: I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Gen. 12:2,3) It is our hope that the Lord will use this report during the seven years of the Great Tribulation period to help his people know that the six-pointed star truly is the mark of the beast and, upon understanding this, to reject the mark when it comes. I will stand upon my watch and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I will answer when I am reproved. And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because IT WILL SURELY COME, it will not tarry. (Hab. 2:1-3) PART I-INTRODUCTION A. RESEARCH PROCESS USED TO DISCOVER THE MARK OF THE BEAST Based on five principles, our study will demonstrate that the six-pointed star fulfills all requirements of the Mark of the Beast. 1. The study of prophecy covers the past, the present, and the future. Write the things which thou HAST SEEN, and the things which ARE, and the things which SHALL BE. (Rev. 1:19) 2. Understanding the future depends upon understanding the past. The thing that HATH BEEN, is that which SHALL BE; and that which IS DONE is that which shall be done: and whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us. (Eccl. 1:9,10) 3. Scripture helps us to understand the past. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: THAT THE MAN OF GOD MAY BE PERFECT, THOROUGHLY FURNISHED UNTO ALL GOOD WORKS. (II Tim. 3:16,17) 4. Mythology helps us to understand the end-time deception. For the time will come when they shall not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (Gr. muthos, or myths) (II Tim. 4:3,4) 5. God gives His people discernment to understand the future. Call unto me and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not. (Jer. 33:3) B. RELEVANCE OF UNDERSTANDING THE MARK OF THE BEAST 1.If we are able to understand Bible prophecy, we must be very close to the time of the end. ...the words are closed up and sealed TILL THE TIME OF THE END...and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. (Dan 12:9,10) 2. Those who understand will not be deceived by the mark, but will learn to recognize it and those who are promoting it. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. (II Pet. 3:17) 3. The mark of the beast affects the eternal destiny of all who are living during the Great Tribulation period of the end times. And the smoke of their TORMENT ascendeth up FOREVER and ever; and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever RECEIVETH THE MARK OF HIS NAME. (Rev. 14:11) And I saw...the souls of them that were beheaded...which did not do homage to the beast, neither his image, NEITHER HAD RECEIVED HIS MARK upon their forehead, or upon their hand; and they LIVED & REIGNED with Christ a thousand years. (Rev. 20:4)* C. RESPONSIBLITY AFTER UNDERSTANDING THE MARK OF THE BEAST And I saw...them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image and over his mark... (Rev. 15:2) 1. They will obey God's commands (Do not take the mark). The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children, that we may DO all the words of this law. (Deut. 29:29) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the CHURCHES. (Rev. 2:29) ...Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that ye may LEARN THEM, and KEEP, AND DO THEM. (Deut. 5:1) THOU SHALT NOT MAKE UNTO THEE ANY GRAVEN IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANY THING THAT IS IN THE HEAVEN ABOVE, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. (Ex. 20:4) ...neither shall ye use enchantment... Ye shall not make any CUTTINGS IN YOUR FLESH... nor PRINT ANY MARKS UPON YOU: I am the Lord. (Lev. 19:26, 28) 2. They will help others to understand by revealing the mark. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many... (Dan. 11:33) D. RESOURCES USED TO PROVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST-1. Scripture a. The Interlinear Greek English New Testament: King James Version is used as the basis for Scripture verses. b. New Versions are cited which reveal Satan's agenda. 2.Occult Sources E.REASONS WE BELIEVE THE 6-POINTED STAR IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST 1. Scriptural support-a. The Textus Receptus The King James Version does not always follow the Textus Receptus. The verses pertaining to the mark of the beast are different in each. Our position is that the Textus Receptus was verbally inspired by God and is the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. The Textus Receptus states that the mark will be on or upon the hand or forehead. The George Ricker Berry Interlinear Greek-English New Testament (Textus Receptus) reads thus: And it causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bondmen, that it should give them a mark on their right hand, or on their foreheads; and that no one should be able to buy or to sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of its name. (Rev. 13:16,17) And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man do homage to the beast and his image, and receive his mark ON his forehead, or UPON his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. And I saw thrones; and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them; and the souls of those beheaded on account of the testimony of Jesus, and on account of the word of God, and those who did not do homage to the beast, nor his image, and did not recieve the mark upon their forehead, and upon their hand; and they lived and reigned with Christ the thousand years... (Rev. 20:4) b. Strong's Concordance-The Greek word for "mark" in these verses is charagma. Strong's Concordance defines this word as a mark that is stamped, branded, imprinted or engraved on the individual's forehead or hand, rather than implanted in the skin. 5480 charagma {khar'-ag-mah} from the same as 5482; TDNT - 9:416,1308; n n AV - mark 8, graven 1; 9-1) a stamp, an imprinted mark-1a) of the mark stamped on the forehead or the right hand as the badge of the followers of the Antichrist-1b) the mark branded upon horses 2) thing carved, sculpture, graven work 2a) of idolatrous images c. Bible prophecy-The book of Revelation places the mandatory reception of the Mark of the Beast in chapter 13, after the seven seal judgments and seven trumpet judgments have taken place. Prior to this, Rev. 11:18 refers to nations which have destroyed the earth: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged...and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. Our report on Heeding Bible Prophecy reveals that the occult plan for the New Age is to go *back to the future* -- to revert mankind to the pre-flood days of Noah and ultimately to the Garden of Eden. The rationale for destroying the earth is the Gnostic belief that the world was created by an evil Demiurge and that the material world is inherently evil. In order for man to transcend matter, and attain to godhood, the world must be annihilated. It logically follows that the destruction caused by mankind and the severity of God's judgments will disable the current systems of advanced technology that are required for a microchip implant. The chip implant, however, will be promoted by the occult societies as a counterfeit mark of the beast during the first half of the Tribulation period. To further deceive, a *false* Antichrist and *false* False Prophet will be staged and judged at mid-Tribulation by the *real* Antichrist, who poses as *The Christ.* At mid-Trib, after approximately one half of the world has been decimated, mankind will revert to a sophisticated system of barter and exchange, which is already in place. The true mark of the beast -- the six-pointed star -- will then be branded as a tattoo upon those who vow their allegiance to Satan at the Luciferic initiation. 2. Occult sources reveal the Mark of the Beast (Lucifer) a. The great seal (mark) of Lucifer is the six-pointed star. I Sail with the Seal by John M. Tapia *I*am that I am the *I* as I am in you as I am in all things. *I*give you my peace to mankind my peace the peace of *I* *I* made heaven for those who are worthy to be aware of all of light *I* made you because of love, you are my family of the greater whole of the universe. MY SYMBOL IN LIGHT IS THE SIX POINTED STAR THE STAR OF HEAVen. THIS IS MY GREAT SEAL. b. The 6-pointed star symbolizes man's ascent to divinity: "The Septenary Universe unfolds seamlessly from Infinity to the physical plane but it was divided into Seven Planes of Existence--or states of consciousness--by The Hierarchy who released this information through Mme. Blavatsky. The Three Higher Planes--Atma (Infinity), Buddhi (Light) and Manas (Higher Intelligence) constitute the Higher Self. The Higher Self is represented by the triangle pointing upwards. Interestingly enough, everyone and everything in the Universe has the same three principles in their seven-principled bodies and this constitutes the principle of Universal Brotherhood. "The triangle pointing downwards is representative of the lower self, the three principles of sensient life--the 'breath of life' (which is a reflection of the Highest Principle), the Astral Body and the physical Body. "When we come into existence, these two triangles are separated, the higher above the lower. In between is a single point of consciousness which represets the soul. The soul is the vehicle of our desires. If we desire the things of the lower principles, the fire of out soul is directed downward and, if our lower desires are strong enough, goes out. "However, if we direct the fire upwards into our Higher Self, we receive the higher energies necessary to RAISE OUR LOWER SELF into harmony with our Higher Self. Thus the lower and Higher self become locked together in place in perfect Union by the principle of the soul. Thus we attain full consciousness awareness on ALL PLANES of the universe and he have, in effect, spiritualized our lower self, to the point where it has raised its energies into Union with the Higher. "As the great metaphysician Mme. Helena Roerich said, 'Man becomes simply a god...and then God.'" - GaiaMind c. The 6-pointed star is considered by occultists to be the Star of Bethlehem which will precede the Advent of *Christ*. Immediately after the tribulation of those days...shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven... (Matt. 24:29-30) "The Star is the symbol of the perfect life, the perfect balance, of the Christ-man. The six-pointed star is the Star of Bethlehem, which again means the Star of the Son of man... "The star with the six points represents the star of Light...of brotherhood, the Star of Christ. The love of Christ is represented by this Star. So, we have in that symbol a representation of the Ancient Wisdom, and the love of Christ, the wisdom and love combined, which is to be realized by humanity in this New Age - the age of Aquarius." - GaiaMind Part II: History of the Six-Pointed Star *Interlinear Greek-English New Testament, King James Version, George Ricker Berry, Baker Book House, 1994.
