This series on the mark of the beast is an attempt to show the dichotomy between the mark of God and the mark of the beast which is a counterfeit of God’s mark. This series is done in love although there are many warnings/admonitions/rebukes included in these studies of various religions and religious doctrines. It is not my intention to condemn anyone, my desire is to see all people come to a knowledge of the truth and relationship with the One True God (1 Timothy 2:4).
I have tried to keep the focus on doctrine and ideas but in some cases the names of men have been included. Again, this is not to condemn. My sincerest hope is that when the light of the Word of God is applied to religion, all men (including those teaching corrupted religion) may see the darkness of the religious systems that they are in and “come out of her” to embrace a relationship with the Most High.
All religions have truth and all religions point to God, albeit they corrupt His Image. All religions have some truth which is a gift of grace to all of mankind to draw us back to the Most High (2 Peter 3:9; 1 Timothy 2:4; 4:10). My desire is for people to keep the truth that they found in their religion but to be set free from the chains of their religious systems that they might walk in freedom in the Lord Jesus (Galatians 5:1; Romans 8:2).
As you read through these studies I hope you will keep these things in mind. My main desire is to see all people become the “little guy in His Eye“.
The research done for these articles was done between 2004 and 2010, I have since gained more understanding and have found that some of the information presented in these articles is based upon faulty research. As a result, as I get time, I hope to update these studies to reflect my growing understanding but they may not be available for some time.
This series was originally 14 parts and about 2474 pages but was infused with understanding which I have come to believe is flawed. I have prayerfully been deciding which parts to “re-publish” and which parts to leave out entirely. For those interested, here is a summation I wrote about the series back in 2010. I will leave it up to the reader to research into these things on their own until I get these articles re-published.
Years ago I believe God led me to study the subject of the mark of the beast in greater depth. As I began to study the topic from the Scriptures I realized that the mark of the beast subject ran all throughout the Holy Scriptures and was not relegated to just the book of Revelation. It is one of the main themes of Scripture. By letting the Scriptures define the mark of the beast, it is seen that it is a counterfeit of the mark/seal of God. I realized that one of the most important ideas put forth in the Word is that the adversary/devil/Lucifer/Beelzebub etc. seeks to be like the Most High (Isaiah 14:14). He is a counterfeiter. As this became more clear to me, the subject of the mark of the beast became more clear as well.
I began this study by looking into Revelation 13:16-18 in more detail in the Greek and comparing the Greek with Hebrew as well as thematic connections found in Scripture. From there I followed what I found and continued to follow the subject matter that was laid out from thereon out. I attempted not to interject my own preconceived notions as to what the mark was, but to truly let the Scriptures/Holy Spirit be my guide. I still believe my main understanding to be on the right path but there is a lot of details I added to support my theory which I have come to find are wrong.
By allowing Scripture to define what the mark of God is and what the mark of the beast is, and by following the facts through history one can see that there has only been two choices all along. Salvation by grace through faith in Christ Jesus or salvation by ‘works’ or ‘knowledge’ that must be attained by graduations after being initiated.
In the beginning, God created man in His image and likeness. After man fell in the Garden, the promise was that He would restore man back to that estate by taking upon Himself the punishment for man’s sin. It is then that mankind will be restored to the image and likeness of the Most High. The adversary seeks to be like the Most High so his desire is to see mankind formed into his image and likeness. From my understanding at this point I believe that in the end this may be accomplished by corrupting the “book of life” inside of mankind which is DNA.
Mark of the Beast 1 – Biblical Definition
In order to understand the mark of the beast, one must go to the Scriptures and let the Word define what it is. The Scriptures define the mark of the beast as a counterfeit of the mark of God. The mark of God is His Image, His Word, His Messiah. The mark of the beast is the image, word and messiah of the adversary.
The adversary is the great counterfeiter who desires to be like the Most High. The phrase ‘like God’ in Hebrew has the numerical value of 666. This phrase was first used in reference to partaking of the fruit of the tree of knowledge and sets the precedent for the meaning of the number 666 and the mark of the beast.
The Scriptures link the mark to the resurrection. Resurrected to life through Messiah or resurrection to death through the beast. Again, it goes back to the choice between the Tree of Life or Tree of Knowledge.
THE LORD marks His people with His Name just as He marked Israel in the wilderness. The adversary seeks to mark his people with his name and to be the head of a false Israel. The adversary seeks to sit in the sides of the North which is defined in the Holy Scriptures as Mt. Zion. Throughout this study it will become clear that Satan desires to be the Christ of Zion/Sion, a counterfeit of the Zion of Scriptures.
666 is linked with sun worship and the sun god which again links back to the Mystery Religions. 666 also points to the tree of knowledge, the Kundalini spirit and Jacob’s ladder which on a deeper level point to DNA.
The only name in the TaNaKH (Old Testament) that adds up to 666 is Sethur which means mystery. In the mystery religions this is equivalent to the ‘god’ Saturn. As this study progresses it will be seen that Saturn and the ‘golden age’ of the gods is intimately related to the mark of the beast.
Mark of the Beast 3 – Frequencies & Symbols
This aspect of the study is likely to be eliminated. While there is much good information it is has numerous errors. The Mysteries were based upon nature, this is why all of the symbols used will have origins/foundations in nature/creation and hence point back to the Creator. As a result, each symbol will have dual/multiple meanings. One will point to creation/God while other meanings will point to the corruption/satan.
Tit 1:15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
The use of symbols to represent the Most High traces back to the Mystery religions. Symbolism is the language of the mysteries. By examining religious symbols and their meanings, one is led to a better understanding of the mark of the beast.
All of creation came forth from the Word of God. Hence, His Image is embedded in all of His works. The adversary seeks to corrupt His Image and lead mankind into the worship of idols, and ultimately himself. This chapter sets the stage that images and symbols are used to represent ideas and concepts, in specific the mark of the beast.
Initiates in the mystery religions used symbols to communicate due to the confusion of languages at the Tower of Babel. As one further studies these images it is seen that similar themes are displayed. The Garden of Eden, the tree of knowledge and the temptation of the adversary that ‘ye shall be as gods.’ Over and over again, this is the message that is portrayed.
Mark of the Beast 4 – Ivy
In the Apocryphal book of Maccabees, it is described how the ivy symbol of Bacchus/Dionysius was branded upon Jews during the days the Greek kingdom. These times were a foreshadow of the end of days. Through the study of ivy and its meanings one comes to the conclusion that ivy is a symbol for the mark of the beast.
The time of the Maccabees displays an important message in relation to the mark. A defilement of the Temple. The Temple is a picture of the human body, so it is seen that the mark of the beast is in relation to this concept.
The topics of DNA, Kundalini, Saturn, Sion etc are all related to Ivy. Through the study of occult symbology it is seen that the same themes are continually portrayed. Again, they point back to the tree of knowledge of good and evil and the temptation of ‘ye shall be as gods.’
Mark of the Beast 5 – The Cross
This article will probably not be re-published as it used a lot of faulty research by men such as Alexander Hislop.
I’ve come to find that the cross actually is a perfect representation of the mark of God.
The cross reveals God’s name/character of love revealed through the life of Christ. The Hebrew word for name is שם ‘shem’ which literally means one’s breathe or character. What is the character of the Almighty? Love (1 John 4:8). The Hebrew word for love is אהב ‘ahav’ which is consists of the letters אב ‘av’ which means father and the middle letter ה ‘heh’ which has the meaning of revelation. The Father revealed. In ancient Hebrew, the letter ה ‘heh’ was depicted as a man with outstretched arms, like unto Messiah on the cross. How was the love of the Father revealed? Through the giving of His only begotten Son on the cross as an atonement for the sins of mankind (John 3:16).
The book of Revelation speaks of God’s name in the forehead of believers (Revelation 14:1; 22:4) which can be linked to Ezekiel 9:4 which speaks of a mark (תו ‘tav’ – which was displayed in ancient times as a cross) being put on the foreheads of true believers. What is the symbol for Christ? An X (a cross), for the letter ׳ ‘Chi,’ the first letter in ׳Χριστός ‘Christos.’
Love & the cross
Messiah triumphed over the adversary by His work on the cross.
Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Messiah on the cross is the revelation of God’s love.
The Father revealed what true love is when He gave His only begotten Son, who came from His bosom (John 1:18), as an atonement for the sins of mankind. The most common Hebrew word for love אהבה ‘ahavah,’ literally means to give.
What is the ultimate definition of love? Giving one’s life for another
Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Joh 15:13 Greater love than this has no one, that anyone should lay down his soul for his friends.
The pictograph meaning of אהב displays this concept even further.
The first and last letters spell out the word for Father (אב ‘av’) and the middle letter is a picture of a man with outstretched arms. The Love of the Father is revealed through the Messiah on the tree, gathering all mankind back to their Creator.
Mark of the Beast 6 – The Hexagram
The Hexagram has become the symbol of ‘Israel’ and Judaism which is a mixture of good and evil, the Holy Scriptures along with man’s interpretations.
The hexagram has been used for thousands of years by those in the mystery religions and contrary to popular thought today, did not originate with King David or Solomon. In reality it is the mark of Saturn.
The hexagram is a mark used by false Messiahs of Israel in the past and therefore is a proper symbol of the beast.
The hexagram is used in the mysteries as a symbol representing the concept of ‘as above, so below.’ The mixture of man and God. The false kingdom of heaven and a false resurrection. In alchemy it represents the transmutation of lead into gold, pointing to the ‘evolution’ of mankind into gods.
The hexagram symbol was used by the Sumerians, Hittites, ancient Grecians & Romans, Japanese, Mexicans, Muslims, Mormons as well as Hindus and Buddhists. The symbol does not represent true Israel, it represents satan and his many faces.
The Rothschilds are responsible for the hexagram being used to represent the State of Israel today. The Rothschilds are the main power behind the founding of the State and are the epitome of what false Israel is.
Mark of the Beast 7 – Saturn
Saturn is represented by the image of the hexagram. Essentially, Saturn is just another name for Satan. He represents the kingdom of Atlantis in the antediluvian world, the ‘golden age of the gods.’ The desire of the adversary is to bring about this kingdom once again. He will attempt to counterfeit the 1,000 year reign of Messiah and the restoration of Eden.
The kingdom of Saturn points back to the days of Noah where the fallen angels mixed with woman and brought forth giants/nephilim. The religion of those days was resurrected by Nimrod and has passed down through the ages in various forms. This is why the symbolism in all religions throughout the world link back to Saturn and these days.
Saturn is the god of false Israel. The days of Noah precede the return of Messiah. This will be a time where the adversary counterfeits the kingdom of Heaven and the return of the Messiah. Part of this deception is using the name of Israel for his followers.
Mark of the Beast 8 – Solomon & Freemasonry
Solomon is a picture of Messiah Jesus, as well as the counterfeit antichrist. The beast will be a ‘reincarnated’ Solomon, who builds a false Temple and rules over the earth.
Freemasonry relies heavily on the Temple and Solomon for the foundation of their teachings but in reality, Freemasonry is a continuation of the Mystery religions of old which mixes truth with error. The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The main objective of Freemasonry is finding the ‘Lost Word’ which is the Name of the LORD. They seek to rebuild the Temple of Solomon which on the surface level is speaking of a literal temple, but on a deeper level is speaking of the human body.
The seal of Solomon is the hexagram which is the same as the square and compass of Freemasonry. Freemasonry traces back to the Mystery religions and the Kabbalah. The Kabbalah is a mixture of the doctrines of the mystery religions and the Bible, a perfect picture of the tree of knowledge. The Kabbalah played a major role in the founding of the United States.
The United States of America has a secret history where it was hoped that it would be a New Atlantis and be used to bring about a New World Order. The Kingdom of the antichrist, the golden age of the gods.
America has always had two sides, good and evil. One side came to America to freely worship the Most High, envisioning this land as a city on a hill in which the Gospel could spread throughout the world. The other side came to this land to freely dabble in the occult, envisioning this land as a New Atlantis in which a “new order of the ages” could come forth.
The United States is the epitome of the age old battle between good and evil.It is interesting to note that the word ‘America’ traces back to the Hebrew word עמל ‘amal’ which means to work, a laborer. This word has various translations from labor, toil and being weary to pain, misery and perverseness/wickedness. Such is this nation. From the beginning there were those who desired to use this nation as a conduit to the ‘new order of the ages’ and the kingdom of the beast versus those who wished to use this country as a conduit to share the Gospel and lead man unto the Kingdom of Heaven.
עמל ‘amal’ comes from the root על which means to be yoked. Who are we going to be yoked with? Messiah or the beast? The Word or lawlessness?
Mark of the Beast 9 – Pentagram
The pentagram is linked with all of the symbols. It is another symbol that is used in reference to Messiah but also used as a counterfeit that points to the antichrist, the ‘god-man’ and the counterfeit kingdom of heaven known as the Golden Age of Saturn.
In the Mysteries, the pentagram is a symbol tracing back to the hand. It is a counterfeit of the Hand of God who is Messiah and is portrayed by the ‘hand of mysteries.’
The Fibonacci spiral is linked with the number 5 and the pentagram. The Fibonacci Spiral is also known as the Golden ration or Divine Proportion as it was used by the Most High in many of His works of creation. Hence, the counterfeiter seeks to use this proportion to glorify himself over God.
The pentagram was also used in ancient times to represent Jerusalem. In the end, this points to Revelation 11 and the description of Jerusalem as Sodom & Egypt. Jerusalem above versus Jerusalem below…
The rose symbol is linked to the pentagram. In the Mysteries, the rose has been an ancient symbol pointing to the ‘divine feminine.’ It is a symbol of the great mystery of the ancient mystery schools. Man becoming gods.
The crescent moon is linked to the pentagram and displays that Islam is also a religion that traces back to the mysteries.
Baphomet, an image made famous by the Templars, is linked to the pentagram as well. Baphomet represents transformation. Man becoming god.
Freemasonry’s blazing star is described in same instances as the pentagram and is a link between the pentagram and the hexagram.
The pentagram is most famous today for its use in witchcraft and the occult. This traces back to its use in magic and the occult going back to the days of Solomon and beyond.
Ultimately, the corrupt understanding of the image of the pentagram represents the union of opposites. The joining man and god.
Mark of the Beast 10 – The Holy Grail
Many theories have been proposed as to what the Holy Grail is. Some say it is the chalice with which the Messiah used at the Last Supper, others claim it is Mary Magdalene and the bloodline that supposedly came forth from her union with Christ. Ultimately, it traces back to the Garden of Eden and the tree of knowledge where the adversary offers ‘eternal life’ which in reality leads to death. The Holy Grail is a symbol that represents the mark of the beast, a false resurrection/regeneration of the body through the tree of knowledge…
The Holy Grail/Graal is called a stone which the alchemists and initiates into the mysteries called the Philosopher’s stone. The Philosopher’s stone is the sought after ‘lapis elixir’ which delivers its finder from death. This traces back to the tree of knowledge of good and evil. ‘Ye shall not die.’
This stone is linked to the stone that fell from heaven who is Diana/Asherah who was the wife of Saturn. Asherah is called ‘Bethel’, the house of God. Again linking the Grail back to the tree of knowledge.
The Philosopher’s stone is also said to be in the human body as the pineal gland. Again, the theme seen is man evolving into godhood. The stone is linked to the Kaaba of Islam which traces back to the stone that is said to have fallen from the coronet of Lucifer in an ancient battle with the Archangel Michael.
The Holy Grail also traces to the Nephilim bloodlines that are believed to have been passed down through the bloodlines of the Illuminati since the days of Noah. It is this bloodline that makes these men feel that they have the divine right to rule over mankind. Some of these men, most famously the Merovingians, claim that they descend from a marriage between Messiah and Mary Magdalene.
These traditions have been passed down from the Essenes to the Knights Templars to the organization of Freemasonry and other secret societies.
Biblically, the bloodlines have no relevance. Salvation comes by grace through faith in Messiah. Herein lies the choice. Faith in the Messiah and partaking of the Tree of Life or reliance on blood/DNA and partaking of the tree of knowledge. The Olive Tree of Israel, whose is Messiah; or the vine of the Illuminati bloodlines…
These bloodlines may claim to trace their lineage back to Messiah or King David but in reality they descend from the Nephilim. Merovee, from whence sprang the Merovingians, claimed descent from a beast from the sea, Neptune. Their desire is to set one of their own on the throne at Jerusalem and rule over the world in a counterfeit paradise/new Atlantis. A replay of the days of Noah.
Zionism comes forth from the men of the bloodlines whose desire is to deceive mankind into thinking their 13 tribes are the true tribes of Israel when in reality they are counterfeits.
The Merovingians and the Priory of Sion are not the only ones who stake claim to the ‘divine’ bloodlines. The British, through legends of King Arthur and the Stone of Destiny, stake their claim as well.
The Stone of Destiny passed through Ireland whose legends and traditions trace back to Atlantis. Those of the British-Israel movement claim that the Tuatha de Danaan are the northern tribes of Israel who went into exile in 700-800 B.C., but in reality are the Nephilim of old.
Hitler and the Nazis were trying to bring about a 1,000 year reign of the kingdom of Atlantis but failed. Hitler was a descendant of the Rothschilds who are the real power behind the State of Israel. When researching the Grail, inevitably, one is led back to false Israel, the synagogue of satan.
Napoleon was another historical figure who attempted to gain power of mankind. He sought to establish his legitimacy to power by marrying into the Merovingian family. He also sought to reinstate the Sanhedrin and re-establish the State of Israel.
Archaeological digs that are being done today in Israel are controlled by the Rothschilds who also are main players behind the corruption of the Holy Scriptures by introducing corrupt texts to believers and claiming that they are ‘older’ ‘more reliable’ texts than the Biblical texts that have been around for millenia.
The desire to corrupt the text of the Bible falls in line with their desire to change who the Messiah is. Change the Word, change the Word who was made flesh. The inerrancy of the Bible is attacked, the divinity of Messiah is attacked, the crucifixion and resurrection is attacked by these Holy Grail/bloodline adherents. Their main goal is to legitimize their claims that they have the true faith of Christianity and the real ‘Jesus.’
Ultimately it comes down to the two seeds mentioned in Genesis 3 which represent the two trees in the midst of the garden. Proponents of the Holy Blood Holy Grail theory attempt to change who Messiah is and change who His people are. They change the image of the Messiah who is the Tree of Life, corrupting it and making it a counterfeit. This is the tree of knowledge. Jesus is the Olive tree of Israel, His branches are His people, the Netsarim sharing the fruit of the tree of life (Proverbs 11:30). The tree of knowledge points to the adversary and his branches/netsarim.’ Isaiah 14:19 calls Lucifer the abominable branch (netser). His body consists of the netsarim/branches of the tree of knowledge, the fruit of the serpent (Isaiah 14:29).
Mark of the Beast 11 – Zionism
Zion represents the people and the land of the Covenant. Biblically, people are equated with lands. The Scriptures refer to the people and land of the covenant as Zion, so the adversary/counterfeiter desires to be linked with this term Zion. The adversary seeks to be like the Most High (Isaiah 14:14), sitting on the sides of the North. This is defined as Mt. Zion.
The foundation of the mark is the image (Acts 17:29) of the God you serve and the covenant with that God. The mark of God is His covenant which is His Word (Isaiah 42:6; 49:8; Zechariah 9:11; Jeremiah 31:31; Matthew 26:28). The mark of the beast is a counterfeit, the covenant with death (Isaiah 28:15). We must choose which God we will serve. The LORD God, the Creator of all things, or the god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4). So too, we must choose which Zion we will be a part of. The Zion spoken of in the Scriptures which is the body of Christ, or the Zionism of this world which is the body of the beast/synagogue of satan.
Zion is defined as the people of God. This is further defined in Scripture as the believers in Christ. Believers in Messiah are the true chosen people of the Most High. They are marked with His Mark. The counterfeit is the ‘chosen people’ who deny Messiah Jesus. They are following the path that leads to the mark of the beast.
Zion is His people and His land. Messiah returns to the earth to save His people and bring about the Kingdom of Heaven. His angels divide the land and apportion it out to His people. The counterfeit is the coming of the antichrist who saves his people, the false Israel. His angels (the fallen angels) divide the land and apportion it out to his people. This division of the land is linked to the mark that you receive. The mark of God or the mark of the beast.
The dividing of the land by the fallen angels leads to the slavery of mankind. The end will be a replay of the Egyptian Exodus and the people of God overcoming the beast through the Lamb of God. The Assyrian, which is a euphemism for the beast, is the ‘Pharaoh’ who will lead his people to cut the covenant of death with the adversary which is replay of Genesis 3.
The Greater exodus and the regathering of Israel is brought about by Christ Jesus. The counterfeit is the State of Israel and the ‘1948 regathering.’ This false regathering is paving the way for the antichrist to come on the scene and deceive mankind into worshiping him as the savior of Israel.
Rabbinic Judaism traces back to Phariseeism which springs forth form Mystery Babylon. Scripture defines this religion as the ‘synagogue of satan.’ The Oral law is a ‘poison book’ which is what the definition of 666 points to. It is a form of the tree of knowledge.
The Kabbalah traces back to the Mystery Religions and the tree of knowledge as well. Kabbalists believe that the kingdom and Messiah will come through the merit of the Kabbalah. Judaism traces back to Esau, not Jacob. Esau is described as the daughter of Babylon in Scripture, again linking Judaism with Mystery Babylon. Esau seeks to steal the land of the covenant away from true believers. This is the essence of Jewish Zionism.
Zionism traces back to the bloodlines, in specific the Rothschilds. Fritz Springmeier, a bloodline researcher, speaks of ‘all roads leading to the Rothschilds,’ and when one studies this subject one must concur with his statement. WWI and WWII were intimitely linked to the Zionist movement as will the planned WWIII between Islam and ‘Judeo-Christianity.’ The Rothschilds are most famous for their banking deals and immense wealth. This is linked to Revelation 13 as the mark is a prequesite in order to buy and sell when the beast is in power. This buying and selling is linked to the Temple and the ‘new man.’
Money traces back to the tree of knowledge as the symbology linked to money reveals. Gold has many mysteries in the esoteric schools, most important of which is the link to turning man into ‘gods.’ It is the counterfeit manna from heaven. A counterfeit ‘word.’
Zionism is leading to the kingdom of the antichrist and the mark of the beast as well as the Noachide laws which will bring grave persecution to the saints. The masses are already brainwashed into believing that the Jews are ‘God’s Chosen.’ It is not hard to see that when the counterfeit Messiah appears on the scene saving ‘Israel’ from Islam that the world will accept him. He will re-institute the temple worship and bring fire down from heaven to consume the sacrifices deceiving people into thinking that God accepts him (Revelation 13:13). He will teach the Oral law/Kabbalah which is called Torah in Judaism but in reality is lawlessness (2Thessalonians 2:3; Matthew 23:28).
Followers of Judaism have been prepared to receive this antichrist ‘torah’ due to the teachings of the Oral Law. Christians too have been prepared to accept his Noachide laws by the movement of Christian Zionism. It is those who believe in Christ Jesus and keep His commandments that will be persecuted (Revelation 12:17; 14:12). It is those who keep the commandments and belief in Jesus who will over come the mark of the beast (Revelation 20:4) for they will have been marked with the mark of God.
Mark of the Beast 12 – As Above So Below
‘As above, so below’ represents a kingdom. There are two choices. The true Kingdom of Heaven, whose King is Messiah Jesus or the counterfeit whose king is the beast. There are two paths, one narrow, one broad. One leads to the Kingdom of Heaven and the tree of Life, the other to the kingdom of the beast and the tree of knowledge.
The types and shadows in the Bible point to Messiah Jesus. The types and shadows in the mystery religions point to the antichrist. Man can choose to repent and turn to Messiah and enter into the Wedding supper of the Lamb, or man can rebel and be a part of the wedding supper of the beast. The concept of ‘as above, so below’ pervades the mark of the beast subject. The symbols mentioned throughout this study such as the hexagram, crescent, phoenix etc., all derive from this concept. The union of opposites, the joining of male and female, heaven and earth becoming one. The macrocosm and the microcosm.
As above so below is best portrayed by the hexagram which is a form of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life but in reality is the tree of knowledge. In the Mysteries, the image of the hexagram representing ‘as above, so below’ is many times surrounded by the Oroboros. The oroboros is a serpent eating it’s tail representing eternity or immortality. It was also a symbol of ‘wisdom’ and traces back to the serpent in the garden of Eden. The Masonic G also displays this oroboros as the G represents the Hebrew letter gimel which is a pictograph of the camel. In esoteric thought, the camel represents satan in the garden.
The gimel is also linked to the ‘golem’ the frankenstein like creature of Kabbalistic lore. The golem represents Adam Kadmon, the ‘god-man’ of Kabbalistic thought. Adam Kadmon is the human representation of the sephirot, the 10 ’emanations’ of God which is displayed in a 3 pillar ‘tree of life’.
The concept of ‘as above, so below’ is a counterfeit of ‘Thy will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven.’ This is the essence of the war that has existed since the beginning. Man must choose between the Will of God or his own will. The tree of Life or the tree of knowledge (ye shall be as gods knowing good and evil…ie choosing your own way). His Will is His Word, His Image, His mark. Believers are called to die to themselves that His Will/Word/Mark can be formed through us.
The Kingdom of Heaven is a restoration of the Garden of Eden. Consequently, the counterfeit kingdom of heaven (the kingdom of the beast) is a counterfeit Eden. Zion vs. Sion. The Olive tree of Israel who is Christ, the Tree of Life, or the false olive of Israel who is the beast, the tree of knowledge.
The land is likened unto a bride in Scripture. The bride of Messiah is His kingdom and His people. The bride of the beast is his land and his people. The Israel of God vs. the Israel of the flesh likened unto Sodom in Egypt in the book of Revelation. False Eden, False Zion, False Jerusalem is equated with 666. The inheritance of the land is also linked with a mark. Man must choose between the Jerusalem above, or the Jerusalem below.
The coming of Messiah Jesus is spoken of as a wedding in Scripture (Revelation 19:7-9) and is foreshadowed in Eden when Eve was brought to Adam. As with most of Scripture, the adversary will counterfeit this wedding with his bride.
His body is His Temple of which was also a picture of Messiah. In every culture where the religion of the Mysteries existed there were temples which displayed the ‘as above, so below’ concept. In many cases they were very similar to the Tabernacle & Temple of God, displaying the counterfeit of the adversary.
Entire cities have been built to display ‘as above, so below’ and man’s innate desire to return to paradise. Giza, Teotihuacan and in modern times Washington D.C. were built to align with the stars and the movements of the heavenly bodies. Washington D.C. is especially significant as America’s ‘destiny’ in the occult is to be a ‘New Atlantis’ to bring about a ‘new world order’ which is in reality a return to the golden age of the gods/Atlantis/the days of Noah.
From crop circles, to the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx to Lincoln’s Memorial, initiates have continually built edifices to the gods with the desire to return to the days where the ‘gods’ dwelt with mankind.
However, On earth as it is in heaven can only come when the LORD ends the exile (Exile is likened unto death). This is pictured when Adam was exiled out of the garden and later in the exile of Israel due to disobedience. Adam was cast out of the garden due to disobedience and can only re-enter through Messiah. The cherubim who guarded the way are pictured in the Tabernacle/Temple in the Holy of Holies. This veil is only entered through Messiah (Matthew 27:51; Hebrews 10:20; 6:19; 9:3; 2 Corinthians 3:16; Luke 23:45). This exile is ended through the resurrection of the dead when we are born again into the Image of Messiah, covered in His garments of salvation.
The adversary seeks to counterfeit this with ‘as above, so below.’ He gives a counterfeit Regathering (end of exile) which is pictured by the false State of Israel, ultimately being fulfilled by a false Garden of Eden where man is given the opportunity to overcome death in the flesh by partaking of the fruit of the tree of knowledge. This is the food of the wedding supper of the beast where his bride will put on corrupted garments of his false priesthood.
Mark of the Beast 13 – Ye Shall Be As Gods
The Holy Scriptures teach that the end is revealed out of the beginning (Isaiah 46:10). The first temptation of man was to eat from the tree of knowledge that he might be as a god. In the end this will be the same temptation man will face. The religions of mankind of today all point to this fact.
The Jewish religion teaches of ‘Adam Kadmon’ the divine man. Mormonism teaches of ‘God becoming man so that man can become God’. The New Age movement speaks of man ‘evolving’ into ‘godhood.’ This is the doctrine of the religions of the East as well (Buddhism, Hinduism etc).
From the garden, through the days of Noah and on the other side of the Flood this doctrine has been passed down from the Mysteries to the religions of today. The lie of the serpent in the Garden of ‘ye shall be as gods’ has passed down through history in types and shadows (spiritual realm) and will eventually play out in the physical realm in the end of days via DNA alteration.
‘Ye shall be as gods’ traces back to the Garden of Eden and the tree of knowledge of good and evil, the ‘root’ of this study. The phrase כאלהים ‘like god’ has the numerical equivalent of 666. This sets the precedent for this number and it proves to be the underlying doctrine of the beast system from the Garden unto today.
The number 666 in Revelation is displayed through the Greek letters which would be rendered into the Hebrew as the letter ת ‘tav’ which is a picture of two crossed sticks, the letter ס ‘samekh’ which is the picture of a thorn or branch and the Greek stigma means a mark and is used to represent a coiled serpent. Here, pictographically, it can be seen that 666 points to the serpent in the tree of knowledge. It should come as no surprise then, that a serpent and a tree is at the basis for all the mystery religions of man throughout history.
The mysteries speak of the Kundalini spirit which is supposed to be a serpent coiled at the base of the spine which climbs the 33 backbone of the vertebrae until it reaches the pineal gland in the brain where man then becomes an enlightened being with his ‘third eye’ opened…knowing good and evil. The pineal gland looks like a pine cone and was represented as such in the mysteries of old. Many believe that the pineal gland’s secretions are linked with the ‘activation’ of dormant DNA, a.k.a. junk DNA, to lead man into his next step of evolution.
From Cain to the days of Noah and Nimrod, down through the mysteries and to the major religions of today, the same doctrine is seen in varying degrees. ‘Ye shall be as gods.’ Some religions offer more fruit from the good side of the tree of knowledge than others, but it is still fruit from the tree that leads to death. Man must put his trust in Christ Jesus alone, that he may partake from the tree of Life. The only source of eternal life.
Mark of the Beast 14 – DNA
The mark of the beast is a counterfeit of the mark of God which is His Image, His Word. DNA, in specific human DNA, is a physical representation of the Word. The DNA in the body of man is the ‘word’/blueprint which is used to produce man who was created in the image of God. A corruption of the human genome would constitute a corruption of the Image of God and His Word. Messiah Jesus came to earth as the Word made flesh. The antichrist beast manifests as a corruption of the Word, a counterfeit Image of God.
Going back to Volume 1 in the Biblical definition of the mark of the beast, it is seen that the mark is equated with the image of the one you serve. Whether God and His mark, the tree of Life or the adversary and his mark, the tree of knowledge. The word for mark in Hebrew is את ‘et’ which represents the Hebrew Alphabet. This is significant as DNA is a perfect portrayal of the Hebrew language. DNA is the language of the book that is used to form our bodies, just as the Hebrew language is the language of the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us.
The DNA molecule is the instruction manual for the forming of amino acids which make the structural elements of proteins that turn into the biochemical units that drive all biological processes. The proteins formed from the amino acids which the DNA molecule makes are 22 in number corresponding to the 22 letters in the Hebrew Aleph-Bet. These 22 letters point to Messiah Jesus who is the Alef & the Tav, the Alpha & the Omega (the Alphabet).
The word for sign אות ‘oht’which is the same word in Hebrew word a ‘letter’. The 22 letters of the Hebrew Aleph-Bet form the Image of the Messiah who is the Word made flesh. This is seen in the physical realm in our bodies where the DNA forms 22 amino acids which make the proteins for each individual part of our bodies.
DNA is used to make up proteins whose etymology brings forth interesting connections to the DNA-Hebrew language connection. DNA creates 22 amino acids which correspond to the 22 letters of the Hebrew Aleph-Bet. These 22 amino acids combine to form the proteins of the body. Interestingly, the word protein comes from the Greek word ‘protos’ which comes from the Hebrew word ‘avar.’ ‘Avar’ is the root of the word ‘ivrit’ (Hebrew).
DNA further connects to the Hebrew language through grammar. Each Hebrew word traces back to a 2 letter ‘parent root.’ This parent root, for the most part, can’t be used in a sentence without the addition of a 3rd letter. Hebrew verbs require a 3 consonant root in order to be conjugated. This 3 letter root is called the ‘child root.’ The DNA helix is formed through the combination of 2 nucleotides. Adenine and Thymine or Cytosine and Guanine combinations. In order for amino acids of the genetic code to be formed into proteins the nucleotides must combine into 3 letter combinations to make ‘codons.’ When the DNA is in the nucleus, the DNA contains two letter pairs held together by hydrogen bonds. The letters are unable to form a body without leaving the nucleus and taking on a 3rd letter, just like the Hebrew language. In order to take on a 3rd letter the DNA helix must “unwind”, where it copies itself onto messenger RNA. The letters then make one long string of letters. Just like an ancient Torah scroll.
The DNA letters are “transcribed” by Messenger RNA, just as Scribes transcribed one Torah scroll onto another scroll. The messenger RNA is also called the Servant RNA. You can not add or take away from the DNA or a mutation results, just as was warned in the Holy Scriptures (Deuteronomy 12:32; Matthew 5:17).
The epigenome is likened unto an invisible wind that moves upon the genome and turns on or off certain parts of the DNA information in order to ultimately make life. The epigenome that ‘translates’ the genetic code is likened to the Spirit. The Holy Spirit teaches man and leads him to interpret the Word correctly where he can be formed into the Image of Messiah. (2 Corinthians 3:18; Galatians 4:19; Romans 8:29) whereas the spirit of evil works in the children of disobedience where the Word is corrupted and leads to them being formed into the corrupted man of sin (Ephesians 2:2-3; Isaiah 1:4; 57:4; 1 Peter 1:13-16).
The ribosomes ‘read’ the 22 amino acids in order to form proteins. Ribosomes are a picture of Scribes. The etymology of Ribosomes plays out this understanding in greater depth. The nucleotides (letters) of the DNA strand attach to a sugar-phosphate backbone. Sugar (sweetness) and phosphate (light) are both appellations of the Word, yet further connecting DNA-the Hebrew language and the Word.
There are 46 chromosomes in the human body corresponding to the combination of the Hebrew and Greek languages of which the Holy Scriptures were written. 22 letters in Hebrew + 24 letters in Greek combine to bring forth life.
The human body is linked to books. Trees are linked to books. Humans are linked to trees…All these things are linked together and show that the DNA/book which forms man is ultimately linked to the tree of which he is a part of. The tree of Life which brings life, or the tree of knowledge which brings forth death.
DNA points to the Word. His Word is His Name which is His Mark. The counterfeiter seeks to be like the Most High so it is seen all throughout history where the beast corrupts this Word, whether literally or in types and shadows. A corruption of the Word/DNA leads to the mark of the beast.
There are two paths that man can choose. The tree of Life and Christ Jesus or the tree of knowledge of good and evil and the beast/satan. Man can repent and die to himself to be made alive through Jesus and the resurrection or man can seek to be made ‘gods’ through the fallen angels and manipulation of DNA.
