“16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
Jesus tells the Apostle John things that will occur in the last days, but we will focus on where it is written that the beast will make every person “receive a mark” (Revelation 13:16). No person will be able to sell or buy without the mark, or the beast’s name, or His number (Revelation 13:17). Is that important, not being able to buy or sell? Here in the USA, back in April, food was scarce on the shelf, no toilet paper or cleaning products were in stock, and even now, the shelves offer a limited number of items.
Think about a worse situation where your kids are hungry and crying for food. You have no food left in your cupboards, and you go to the store to be refused entrance. You plead with the clerks to let you in, you tell them your kids are hungry, and they tell you if you want food for your children to take the mark. Well, you think I have stuff I can sell for food, so you go to the pawnshop to sell your jewelry, but there is a red sign on the door, no mark no entry. You try to go in, but the security guard threatens to call the police and you are refused entry because you do not have the mark you cannot sell or trade. What will you do? Will you take the mark to buy food for your family? how about another scenario, your mom is a diabetic and needs insulin, and she will die because you cannot buy the medicine without the mark; what will you do? Will you take the mark to buy medicine? Will you take the mark to buy food or medicine for your family? The Bible states whoever receives the mark will be tormented with fire (Revelation 14:9-11). That sounds really harsh, and what do verses in a book written over 2,000 years ago have to do with us? Why should we care? Is there anything in the news that would correlate with people not being able to buy or sell without a mark? Actually, there is.
What do mandatory vaccines, passports have to do with the verses in Revelation that tell us no person could buy or sell without having the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:16-17).
Mandatory Vaccines and Certifications
First, we will focus on mandatory vaccines, and are they in the USA yet? No, they are not but, they are close to being pushed on the citizens. Why should it matter to you if vaccines are mandated, and every person has to have proof of vaccination? Just what does that mean for you and your family? It means that if you are unvaccinated, you will not be able to go to restaurants, events, grocery stores, pharmacies, or even travel by plane. I know this sounds farfetched, but alarmingly, restrictions are in the process of being put in place. The following are quotes from Professor Caplan during an interview on CNN.
“A radical NYU professor claimed that promises of more freedom from the tyrannical pandemic lockdowns is a “powerful incentive” for vaccine skeptics to get the COVID-19 jab.
Medical ethics professor Arthur Caplan went on a Machiavellian tear in a CNN interview Sunday about how the elites can pressure people still hesitant to get the COVID-19 vaccine to do so.
“If you promise people more mobility, more ability to get a job, more ability to get travel, that’s a very powerful incentive to actually achieve fuller vaccination,” Caplan explained to host Fareed Zakaria.
“Vaccine passports do require access; it’s hard to impose anything unless you are pretty sure that somebody can get a vaccine. So I think it’ll be a little while before we see this, let’s say within the U.S.” But, Caplan said, “vaccine passports” are still not far away from being pushed in America. “But there are going to be communities and areas of the country where it starts to make sense due to high availability of the vaccine to say, ‘you wanna come back to work in person? Gotta show me a vaccine certificate. You wanna go in a bar, a restaurant? Gotta show me a vaccine certificate,’” he said.” 
Mandatory Vaccines and the Bible
Are mandatory vaccines, or vaccine passports the mark the Bible is talking about? To find out the answer to that question, we must go to the source. Biblically when we analyze Revelation 13 verse 17, it states no one will be able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast, the beast’s name, or his number, and we are not at that point as of yet.
“17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
It is still in the early stage of phases of restrictions on vaccines, and you need to watch what will transpire with the vaccines and certificates. It is more likely that this is a test run to see how people will react to the vaccines, what citizens will comply and who won’t adhere to the mandates. Meanwhile, those in control will continue to move in stricter measures concerning vaccine mandates/certificates/passports using the frog in a pot method with the public.
Brothers and sisters, be aware that Covid-19 is being used to curb freedom and to place stricter security measures in our country. This is already in effect in airports, stores, hospitals, universities, and local communities with mask mandates. During this pandemic governments have been using an Orwellian type of control over their people with their restrictions choking the life out of our freedoms.
Think about life back in January 2020. We had no restrictions on our travel, or what we could buy, or how much we could buy at the grocery store. We had no constraints on what events we could attend, restaurants we could eat at, getting our hair cut, and we were able to attend our churches freely and sing loudly. Unbelievably, in some states, singing has been outlawed by churchgoers . Changes are moving so swiftly it is hard to keep up with all the chokeholds that are being placed on people by the leftist regime in power. God prophesied this sudden change in a prophetic word,
For up will be down and everything will be shaken (1) [Fulfilled]
Tumbling moving going around
The world will become like a kaleidoscope [Fulfilled] 
The elites or globalists want more power to control the masses. Covid has brought rules and regulations with mandatory masks and vaccinations. All of these invasive rules use fear of Covid-19 to desensitize people to follow their leaders/elites and comply with their endless rules and regulations. In this case, I think it is imperative to ask just who or what is the leader you are following?
Christian, the mask that covers our faces is being used to control our freedoms and our voices. The left/globalists/ desire to silence conservatives, constitutionals, patriots, and Christians because these groups know the changes are not Biblical or Constitutional. Think about how people have acquiesced to Covid-19 directives, including the forced wearing of masks, our freedom of movement, our freedom to worship, and freedom of speech. Not to mention the devasting strike to our economy with over 97,000 businesses permanently closing, in Florida “thousands of acres of fruits and vegetables” ruined, “Millions of farm animals” killed, and millions of Americans Have Been Laid Off Amid the Coronavirus Outbreak. [3, 4, 5, 6]
Reflect how swiftly Covid-19 has altered our daily lives, and that is just how rapidly these vaccination passports could morph into other forms of oppression. The coming repressive world system which has been hidden behind the scenes, is rearing its demonic head through Covid-19. Their governmental establishment will evolve into an entity more extreme than what we have ever experienced, and the mark of the beast it orders for all is far more deadly than Covid-19 because it can damn your soul to hell.
“21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”
“28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
This sudden change of society was prophesied by God in a prophecy,
For up will be down and everything will be shaken (1) [Fulfilled]
Tumbling moving going around
The world will become like a kaleidoscope [Fulfilled] 
Here is a prophetic word that stated if you want to see what will happen to America look at China,
“As I was praying, I heard from the Lord if you want to know what is coming to America, look at the control that China has imposed on its citizens. This is what will be used in America to manage and control the people.
Persecution will include job loss, control of reading, food, movement, and outlawing the Bible or passages that do not support the evil. It will grow until the time is upon us when Christians will decide to die or live by denying Christ. It has begun; we are in the birth pangs.” 
What is Happening in America
The surveillance and control the CCP/Chicoms/Chinese have placed on their citizens will come to the USA. This is already being fulfilled by legislatures voting against a bill to block a type of social credit system being used here in America . “Democrats in the House of Representatives voted against an amendment to a proposed bill that would prevent the CFPB from modeling credit. 
We are already seeing books being banned or not being published again such as: six books by Dr. Seuss and William Shakespeare [10-11]
No Restaurant Service Without Vaccine
Do you think that what is happening in China will not come to the USA? While we do not need a mark to buy food at a restaurant and mandatory vaccine certificates are not here yet, a restaurant in California has placed rules on who gets to eat . Hmm, cannot buy without the pass; I mean mark, sounds quite familiar.
A Bistro has made vaccine certificates mandatory by refusing service to customers unless they prove two shots of vaccine and a waiting period of two weeks before being served (Turner). 
Seems Professor Caplan was right when he said, “You wanna go in a bar, a restaurant? Gotta show me a vaccine certificate.” 
Australia Vaccine Mandate
They are saying nothing about a mark, but everything has to start somewhere, remember the frog, and it’s desensitization to the heat. Australia has a plan put forth by New South Wales Premier Berejiklian,
“Anyone without a vaccine could be BANNED from pubs, restaurants and even workplaces under radical new plan. Gladys Berejiklian has proposed a radical plan to ‘incentivise’ the COVID-19 jab. Under the plan, unvaccinated residents would be banned from certain venues. Some businesses will be urged to make patrons prove vaccination upon entry. The federal government will further discuss vaccine rollout in coming weeks.” “Ms Berejiklian has previously said a green tick feature could easily be added to the Service NSW App to indicate someone has been vaccinated.” 
More Australian Mandates
“Australia’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer has discussed the possible restrictions for people who refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
He mentioned regulations around international and interstate travel and even moving within the community, would need to be reviewed.
Australian pubs and restaurants could also refuse entry to people who refuse to get vaccinated.” 
What are the Digital Credentials for Covid
We have talked about being forbidden to enter places including grocery stores, workplaces or restaurants. Imagine not receiving service at restaurants, PCP’s, or the pharmacy. Have to travel for work where is your proof of vaccination, so how can that be done? How can we have digital credentials?
“Several companies and technology groups have begun developing smartphone apps or systems for individuals to upload details of their COVID-19 tests and vaccinations, creating digital credentials that could be shown in order to enter concert venues, stadiums, movie theaters, offices, or even countries.” 
If you think the two-party system of Republicans vs. Democrats is bad enough. Just watch what is being rolled out for the covid vaxxer vs the non-vaxxer, or to put it another way, the negative covid person vs the non vaxxer. Like it or not, around the world Covid-19 passports, or vaccine passports or immunity passports are being put in place for travel. It makes you think how long it will be before people must have a passport to buy or sell, and wouldn’t it be much easier if they were put on our right hand or forehead for convenience, of course because phones lose their charge.
“Singapore- “the new digital health verification process was rolled out for passengers traveling on flights operated by the carrier from Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, according to a Singapore Airlines press release.
The airline explains passengers will take COVID-19 tests at local clinics in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur and be issued “digital or paper health certificates with a QR code.” These forms of immunity passes will be checked by airport security and Singapore’s immigration authority.”
London-In October, passengers flying from London’s Heathrow Airport to Newark on a United Airlines flight were part of a pilot program to test passengers for the virus.
Philippines-Just weeks ago, Lance Gokongwei, President and CEO of Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ largest budget airline, announced health passports would be “essential” for travel.
Spain-Spain has announced that it will now create a register of people who refuse the Covid vaccine, and their names will be shared with the EU.” 
QR Code to Travel
In order to prove you have been vaccinated for Covid-19 and are safe to travel a health certificate in the form of an app for your phone complete with a QR code is being developed by,
“the Common Trust Network, an initiative by Geneva-based nonprofit The Commons Project and the World Economic Forum, has partnered with several airlines including Cathay Pacific, JetBlue, Lufthansa, Swiss Airlines, United Airlines and Virgin Atlantic, as well as hundreds of health systems across the United States and the government of Aruba.” 
Common Pass Service
If you are wondering what service the covid app will perform according to,
“CommonPass lets individuals access their lab results and vaccination records, and consent to have that information used to validate their COVID status without revealing any other underlying personal health information. Lab results and vaccination records can be accessed through existing health data systems, national or local registries or personal digital health records (Apple Health for iOS, CommonHealth for Android.” 
Current travel restrictions have led us to the State of New York, where bill A416 is in committee that will detain citizens. This proposed bill is dangerous because it presses the freedom of American citizens and gives powers to detain citizens by the Democratic Governor of New York. Remember, once a bill is authorized, it leaves gray areas to be added in the future, such areas could lead to future detainment of those who are deemed dangerous like conservatives, anti-vaccine, constitutionalists, and Christians. First, they could select out the vaccinated, then detain the unvaccinated indefinitely. It is easy to sort the two tiers with the coming vaccine passport/certificate and QR code. Remember such bills are footholds against our freedoms, and in the future, it would be even easier to sort out the two groups by marked or unmarked.
“If approved, the law would grant Gov. Cuomo massive powers to indefinitely detain American citizens and put them in internment camps.” 
“Albany, New York, December 29, 2020: Assemblyperson N. Nick Perry (AD-58), recently proposed bill A416, currently in committee for presubmission to the Assembly for the 2021 session, which relates to the “removal of cases, contacts and carriers of communicable diseases who are potentially dangerous to the public health.”
As written, the bill states, “(u)pon determining by clear and convincing evidence that the health of others is or may be endangered by a case, contact or carrier, or suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease that, in the opinion of the governor… may pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health resulting in severe morbidity or high mortality, the governor or his or her delegee…may order the removal and/or detention of such a person or of a group of such persons by issuing a single order, identifying such persons either by name or by a reasonably specific description of the individuals or group being detained.” The bill goes on to specify no specific timeframe, location or criteria for the termination of this detention, instead leaving that to the discretion of the governor.” 
Mark on Hand or Forehead
All of these infringements on people lead us to Bible prophecy. Could this vaccine passport be the mark of the Beast? It is more likely it is the early stages by conditioning people for the coming mandatory mark of the Beast/Antichrist/Satan. Now when you go to the grocery store, and you are already directed what to wear, A MASK, or no entrance. when you enter the store, you are told what and how much you are allowed to buy, your mind is being accustomed to accepting of being told what to do. The QR code on your phone makes you desensitized to a future mark because the action of showing proof of vaccination familiarizes you with accepting future mandates and or the mark of the beast.
Where are We Prophetically
Let us look to the most prophetic book in the world, the Bible. We will use the nation of Israel as our timepiece because prophetically, Israel is involved in the next event. When Jesus was teaching in Matthew 24 about the signs of the end of time and His return, He stated that after the abomination of desolation, there shall be a great tribulation (Matthew 24:15 & 21). We know that there must be a third temple for the idolatrous act to occur, and at this point, the temple has not been built. Please read Matthew 24 for more of the signs that Christ has warned us are to come.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
“3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
To understand more about the beast to come and his mark, let us get back to the Bible where the Lord Jesus gave us clues by stating the mark is a “number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six” (Revelation 13:18b). The most important thing to know about the beast is,if you take the mark, you will not go to heaven but hell.
“9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 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: 11 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.”
What Can Christians Do
We need to be as the sons of Issachar who had an “understanding of the times, to know” what to do, to seek His wisdom for our lives (1 Chronicles 12:32 and James 1:5). Such understanding only comes from Jesus Christ, so pray and seek revelation and guidance from the Lord. Watch of what is happening in the world around us and intercede for direction as we see more restrictions positioned around us. It is time to get our lives in order, to decide what matters most to us. Christian gird yourself, for time is shorter than you think, prepare yourself for the time when Satan will make war on the saints (Revelation 13:7). It is time to pick up your sword and be familiar with your weapon of warfare. God will give you discernment through His Word, the Holy Bible, and the Holy Spirit will direct you in all things. God knew the times you would live through, and you were born for such a time as this (Esther 4:14).
