Mark of The Beast

Mark of the Beast

The actual "Mark" is Antichrist's NAME or NUMBER, not ours.
It is "worn" as a symbol of worship on the right hand or on the forehead. However, national or international ID numbers are also significant because at the time the Mark is instituted, Antichrist will control all buying and selling, which obviously requires personal identification for all people.
