The Mark of the Beast Explained

When will the Mark of the Beast be required?

It is not possible to get the mark of the beast right now. First of all, the beast does not currently exist and second of all, the mark is not being offered or required.

Very soon the beast will arrive on earth. The beast is not a person or a human organization. The beast is Satan himself. Satan will appear on earth in a glorious body and will claim that he is God. When he comes he will bring millions of his demons with him. They will not appear to be demons. Many of his demons will appear as glorious angels who pretend to be from heaven. Some of his demons will claim to be people who have died and gone to heaven. They will say that they have come back to earth to teach and help other people. They will appear in beautiful, perfect bodies.

Two demons appear to be Moses and Elijah

There will be two powerful demons who will claim to be the prophets Moses and Elijah. They will come with the beast. The three of them will appear to be God, Moses and Elijah.

The two demons who pretend to be Moses and Elijah are described as a beast in Revelation 13. They are called a beast with two horns. The two horns represent two beings, one Moses and the other Elijah.

"11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed." Rev 13:11-12

The demons pretending to be Moses and Elijah will be gentle and kind like a lamb but their words will be the words of Satan. They will have great power and authority. They will tell people to worship the first beast. This first beast is Satan. He appears to be God and people will adore and worship him.

Fire from heaven and miracles

"13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast." Revelation 13:13-14

The demon who is pretending to be Elijah will call down fire from heaven to prove that the beast (Satan) is God.

The demon who is pretending to be Moses will work miracles to prove that the beast (Satan) is God.

"16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." Revelation 13:16-17

After Satan and his demons have been on earth for a few months the two demons pretending to be the prophets Moses and Elijah will force people to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead. They will enforce the mark of the beast.
