He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand … His number is 666.
Revelation 13:16, 18
Earlier this year, a coal miner in West Virginia was awarded $150,000 in punitive damages after being forced to prematurely retire when he wouldn’t submit to biometric scanning. The mining company began using technology to read the hands of every miner each day for employment records. But this man objected, fearing the biometric hand scanner would give him the mark of the beast and that the technology was associated with the Antichrist. He went to court and won his case.
You can decide for yourself whether the miner overreacted, but no one can deny that our emerging technologies are setting the stage for the Antichrist. We can easily see how the mark of the beast can be scanned on everyone’s hand or forehead as authorization for buying and selling.
The mark of the beast is 666. God’s number is 7, for it represents perfect completeness. Since God is Trinity, He is a perfect 777. The number of the false trinity will be 666. Man will always fall short of God’s perfection, but God’s wrath will fall on those who refuse to accept His perfect grace.
No one can say exactly what form the mark of the beast will take, but the number six seems to be important ... Humanity was created on the sixth day and commanded to work six out of seven days. The number 666 is man’s number—tripled.
