Do They REALLY Know What The Mark of The Beast IS?


By Ray Gano

A few weeks ago I wrote an article about ID2020 /Blockchain, which nobody knows anything about, and how I believe the biochip, which is archaic technology, is not the mark of the beast.

It is interesting; you would not believe how many cranky people contacted me and basically condemned me to hell because I said that the biochip is not the mark.

Here is one of the emails I got regarding my article…

“Your mark of the beast article encourages people to lower their guard about the RFID chip. Have you thought about the fact that – if you are wrong about the dangers (eternal dangers and possible physical dangers) God will hold you responsible for telling people it is safe? I very much disagree with your thought process and your conclusions. I think that article is a very foolish thing to write and publish. You appear to be very naive about this technology and what it is capable of doing to a person now and what it might be capable of doing in the future with a few minor updates.” – Signed “B”

Obviously this person suffers from “You Tube Exegeses” and has memorized “Late Great Planet Earth” instead of cracking open the bible to Revelation 13. (No disrespect to Hal Lindsey)

Let’s take a few moments and really look at what is going on with scripture when talking about the Mark of the Beast (MoB)

Revelation 13: 11-18 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

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.

So what is going on here?

We have this very charismatic man, the one with two horns like a lamb, appear on the global stage. He performs great miracles, calls fire down from heaven and the world is amazed.

We see that this person “Causeth all” to receive a “MARK” in their right hand or forehead.

What Is The Mark Scripturally?

To really determine what the mark really is, we need to go to scripture and do some digging.

The word “mark”, as used in Revelation 13:16-17, is the Greek word “charagma.”

According to Strong’s Concordance, the Greek word charagma means “a scratch or etching, stamp a badge of servitude, graven mark.”

Digging even deeper we see that the root word of charagma is charasso, which means “to engrave.”

Now, charagma is a Greek noun, a “thing” and is often preceded by the Greek preposition “epee,” which means “upon.”

What we are seeing here is that the “mark” is just that, an actual mark on the skin and NOT an implantable microchip the size of a grain of rice.

Simply stated, it is going to be some form of tattoo.

But not just any old tattoo, it will be something special.


As I mentioned in my last article, the Mark of The Beast is not just a means to buy and sell. It holds political, social, economic, and religious allegiance.

  • In taking the mark, you KNOWINGLY give your allegiance and soul an economical system.
  • You KNOWINGLY give your allegiance and soul a social political system.
  • You KNOWINGLY give your allegiance and soul a religious system.

Flashback To Our Past

Back sometime in mid-November 1936 the very first social security card was issued. Christians at that time were freaking out; at least that is what my grandfather told me. See, the people living during that time thought that this was the mark of the beast. OH.. and it was believed that Hitler was the Antichrist.

Was the Social Security card the Mark?


We fast forward to the 1980s. The automatic transfer machine (ATM) was invented and after hours banking was born. To work the machine everyone had to have a card and also have a PIN (Personal Identification Number)

Once again Christians stood up and declared that this was the Mark of The Beast.

Was the ATM Card and the PIN the Mark of The Beast?


In the late 1980s a man named Dr. Daniel Man was awarded a patent for developing a microchip to be placed under the skin.

What is interesting is that Dr. Man who is originally from Israel stated the that it was his desire to see every Israeli Jew have the microchip transponder that he developed implanted under their skin.

The stated purpose: “To end the of kidnapping and terrorism, as each individual could be precisely located instantly.”

No one questions Dr. Man’s intentions; they seem good for his fellow man.

So, is Dr Man’s invention, the implantable biochip the Mark of The Beast?



Do any of these inventions create and maintain political, social, economic, and religious allegiance when the person takes it?


Now, to implement a tracking system much like they have in India (ID2020) it has taken them years and they still do not have all the populace put in the system yet.

The MoB system will be the same thing and on a much larger scale. That means that most likely the MoB will leverage a system that is already in place.  I believe that ID2020 will be that system coupled with some form of tattoo.

What We Forget About The Mark of The Beast

When the mark of the beast is put in place, the individual will accept wholeheartedly and with his or her soul to an economic, political and religious system. The mark of the beast must meet all these otherwise it is not the mark of the beast.

Here is what scripture says…

Revelation 13:16 (KJV) 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:

The key word that I want to point out here is that “He Causeth.” He does NOT force, coerce, trick; it is a FREEWILL decision that the person makes KNOWING that they are choosing who they will spend eternity with.

Those who take the mark will be doing so with their eyes wide open.

It will be a very serious religious experience. Liken that to when we as Christians accept Christ as our savior.

These people will be accepting Satan as theirs. One cannot tell me that this will not be a deeply moving and emotional experience for these people.

Again, these people KNOWINGLY submit to the social, political, economic and religious system that the antichrist has put into place.

It will be something they will want to be part of, and they will freely give their soul to Satan.

So, is today’s biochip doing all of those things as I have stated?


The Biochip is Archaic As Well As Passive Technology

In today’s world the biochip is archaic as well as a liability suit just waiting to happen. Another problem is that it can be taken out of a person and hijacked by someone who needs a quick chip. Lop off the person’s hand and you have a chip.

Another final point, the biochip is not meant to be used in an area  where there is no flexibility, such as the skin on the forehead.

This in and of itself is a detractor for the biochip being the MoB… it can’t be placed in the forehead like Revelations describes.

There are technologies that surpass this rice sized glass vile that are way more effective and technologically forward.

Things like…

DNA-Enabled Security Holograms – “The fail-safe anti-counterfeiting technology of Applied DNA Sciences, combined with our state-of-the-art holograms, provides an impregnable layer of security for our customers. The new DNA-Holograms will be available by January 2005, when the two companies will jointly market the products to clients worldwide. Together, we provide levels of brand protection and safety never previously available.” (1)

Conductive inks –  These are a type ink that is used to produce electro-conductive tracks for the manufacture of printed circuits, membrane switches or printed wiring boards (PCB, PWB) and for a wide variety of other uses such as intelligent packages, circuit components and antennae for radio frequency identification solutions. When taken a step further; they can pull from the body’s electrical source and use it to “power” an electronic tattoo.

Flexographic Ink – one of the main concerns of the RFID industry has been the prevention of  counterfeits. The use of XINK antenna ink prevent and eliminate this possibility. This is the same sort of technology that is used as a “forensically-invisible security system for currency.”

The bible clearly states that the Mark of The Beast will be some sort of “etching” on the skin. I am interpreting this as a tattoo. It is what appears to be the best solution.


A biochip is NOT visible where a tattoo is visible.

A biochip cannot be placed under the skin on the forehead, a tattoo can.

A biochip cannot be viewed and displayed as something a person is proud of unlike a tattoo which is clearly seen and identified from a distance.

People who take the Mark of The Beast will be proud of their choice. I also believe that when they do accept Satan as their personal savior, that they will then be indwelled by a demon, much like the Holy Spirit indwells a Christian when they accept Christ.

The Mark of The Beast is an act of submission, acknowledging that Satan is their master and professing to the world that they are one of Satan’s minions.

Does the biochip do all this?

Not in the least.

What people need to focus on is a  technology called ID2020. It is in the works now, support by many multinational corporations as well as the full support of the United Nations.

I believe (speculate) that some form of holographic, non-counterfeit, electronically active in both sending and receiving sort of tattoo coupled with ID2020 will be what the Antichrist uses to put in place The Mark of The Beast.

Not some archaic glass bobble that is the size of a piece of rice slipped in under the skin.
