The number of the Beast
the great image “whose brightness was excellent
the false prophet will require everyone to get a
mark in their right hand or in their forehead – DON’T!
The world’s first implantable microchip…
The number of the Beast / the number of his name 600-60-6
The number of the beast will be count to 600-60-6. I’m not sure what this will be but here are some possible speculations:
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.
Speculation on the 600-60-6 in Revelation 13:18
The Image: THE BEAST as an image:
In the book of Daniel God helps us to understand what is going to happen during the tribulation by looking back in history.
Two places relate to each other, Babylon in history and the future Mystery Babylon during the tribulation.
Nebuchadnezzar was “King of Babylon” in history. Nebuchadnezzar ruled Babylon, a city in the current country of Iraq.
The antichrist will be the “King of Mystery Babylon” during the future tribulation. The antichrist will rule the world from “Mystery Babylon” which is Rome.
The book of Daniel in the Bible talks about a king of Babylon called King Nebuchadnezzar.
The book of Revelation in the Bible talks about a king of Mystery Babylon which will be the antichrist.
Turn in your Bible to Daniel chapter 2 and read about the dream that Nebuchadnezzar had.
As soon as Nebuchadnezzar woke up he couldn’t remember the dream.
So Nebuchadnezzar sent for the wise men of Babylon and required that they tell him what he dreamed and also the interpretation of it.
The wise men replied that no one would be able to tell Nebuchadnezzar what he dreamed.
But Daniel, with God’s inspiration, was able to tell Nebuchadnezzar what the dream was and what the interpretation was.
Daniel tells Nebuchadnezzar that the dream was about something that “shall be in the latter days.” (Daniel 2:28) In the dream Nebuchadnezzar sees a great image. Here’s a description of the image in Daniel chapter 2:
(1) Excellent brightness ~ verse 31 ~
Daniel describes Nebuchadnezzar’s dream to him. Daniel says the great image “whose brightness was excellent”. A display device for video would appear extremely bright to someone who had never experienced it before. Here’s the description of the display device for a television by Wikipedia:
“A display device, which turns the electrical signals into visible light. The brightness of a picture measures how vibrant and impacting the colours are. Measured in cd / m2 equivalent to the amount of candles required to power the image.”
Head of fine gold
Breast and arms of silver
Belly and thighs of brass
Legs of iron
Feet part of iron and part of clay
This image sounds like a statue. In the dream a stone was cut out “without hands” and inflicts a heavy blow on the image on its feet and brake them to pieces “together”. The wind carried all the pieces away. The stone became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
We read about the dream. Now here is the interpretation in Daniel:
Nebuchadnezzar is the head of gold.
Another kingdom inferior to Nebuchadnezzar is the breast and arms of silver.
Another third kingdom of brass which shall bear rule over all the earth is the belly and thighs of brass.
The fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron.
The feet and toes are part of potters clay and part of iron
Who-what is the image of the beast that is talked about in Revelation and Daniel? I think the image is a representation of the image that the antichrist will want everyone to worship during the tribulation.
The statue represents the Beast we talked about before.
The antichrist will want the whole world to worship the Beast just like Nebuchadnezzar wanted everyone to worship his statue in Daniel chapter 3.
The antichrist is the head of gold.
Another kingdom inferior to the antichrist is the breast and arms of silver. Possibly the Vatican / Holy See?
Another third kingdom of brass which shall bear rule over all the earth is the belly and thighs of brass. This is possibly the one world religion.
The fourth kingdom could be the United Nations as a whole, as strong as iron.
The feet and toes are part of potters clay and part of iron. The feet are the UN General Assembly and the toes are the UN Security Council. The UN is made up of different countries with one voice through the Security Council.)
The Mark of THE BEAST:
Revelation 13:17 talks about a mark that the antichrist or false prophet will require everyone to get in their right hand or in their forehead in order to buy or sell. (Rev. 13:16-17). It’s possible that the Catholic diocese will be responsible for the distribution of this mark around the world.
Do not take the mark. Read on!
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:
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.
DON’T TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST. IF YOU DO YOU WILL NOT HAVE A CHANCE TO GO TO HEAVEN. READ REVELATION CHAPTER 14. IT SAYS IF YOU RECEIVE THE MARK YOU WILL DRINK OF THE WINE OF THE WRATH OF GOD. DO NOT TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST!!!
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,
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:
There are companies that are currently producing implantable microchips for human use.
After the Rapture, millions of people will be missing and can’t be found anywhere. Panic and chaos follows. Folks will want some kind of security in tracking their loved ones. Everyone will want to keep track of those in their family, especially children, in case the same thing happened again.
At that time more than ever people will be attracted to the human microchip technology. Everyone will be rushing to microchip their loved ones so they will be able to always track them in case another disaster like the rapture happens again.
The terrorism of September 11, 2001 sparked a good deal of talk relative to a national ID, but little public mention of ID implantation was made until Applied Digital Solutions (ADS) came out with their VeriChip for humans. Go to the website indicated below and read about it for your self.
Verichip initially wanted to place the implants in either the right hand or the forehead, but they received a lot of criticism from folks that accused them of creating the “mark of the beast” as stated in Revelation 13 in the Bible. In order to more easily sell their product, Verichip has now changed the placement on the body to “a variety of locations within the human body”.
During the tribulation the location of the implant on the body may go back to either the forehead or the right hand.

The world’s first implantable microchip…the world’s first implantable radio frequency identification (RFID) microchip for human use, has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for medical uses in the United States…
The VeriChip miniaturized Radio Frequency Identifcation (RFID) Device is the core of all VeriChip applications. About the size of a grain of rice, each VeriChip contains a unique verification number, which can be used to access a subscriber-supplied database providing personal related information. And unlike conventional forms of identification, VeriChip cannot be lost, stolen, misplaced or counterfeited.
Once implanted just under the skin, via a quick, painless outpatient procedure (much like getting a shot), the VeriChip can be scanned when necessary with a proprietary VeriChip scanner. A small amount of Radio Frequency Energy passes from the scanner energizing the dormant VeriChip, which then emits a radio frequency signal transmitting the individuals unique verification (VeriChipID) number. The VeriChip Subscriber Number then provides instant access to the Global VeriChip Subscriber (GVS) Registry – through secure, password protected web access to subscriber-supplied information. This data is maintained by state-of-the-art GVS Registry Operations Centers located in Riverside, California and Owings, Maryland.Also, VeriChip is working on an implant that will contain a Global Positioning System. Such a device would allow an individual with a scanner to pinpoint someone’s position on the globe.
The Vatican Library in Rome, Italy is currently using RFID tags to identify and manage their two-million collection of library articles.
