"And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name."(Rev.13:16-17) Just about everyone has heard of the 'mark of the Beast' and have come up with just about every imaginable idea about what this 'mark' could be. There are those that believe it is some kind of a micro chip implanted in a person's hand or brain,- or some kind of national ID card. Succinctly put it is all just idle speculation by those that do not know the Bible! While the Bible tells us about this mark of the Beast that identifies his followers,- it also tells us about God's sign that identifies those that follow Him! When we know what sign identifies God's people we will then know what the Beast' sign is. The Beast' sign is the antithesis of the sign that God's people carry! It is as simple as that. In this brief study presentation we are not going to get into so much the sign for the Beast, i.e., his mark. We are going to put together Biblical quotes on the sign that God's people have. God 'marks' His people and we want to know what that 'mark' consists of. Let us go to the Scriptures for the explanation;-

"The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 13 "But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'You shall surely observe My Sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you. 14 'Therefore you are to observe the Sabbath, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people." (Ex.31:12-14) (sanctifies; put aside/marked for special purpose) "Sanctify My Sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am the LORD your God." (Ezek.20:20) (that you may KNOW) "And it shall serve as a sign to you on your hand, and as a reminder on your forehead, that the law of the LORD may be in your mouth; for with a powerful hand the LORD brought you out of Egypt." (Ex.13:9) (hmm.. hand and forehead,- just like the Beast of Revelation' followers have a sign/mark in their hand or forehead! So the Beast has a counterfeit sign that mimics God's sign!) (Egypt typifies sin) "You shall therefore impress these Words of Mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead." (Deut.11:18) (here God is discussing His Laws (which includes the 4th Commandment about the Sabbath) and His identifying Sign with more reference to the hand and forehead) "You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. 8 "You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. 9 "You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." (Deut.6:7-9) (here again reference to the hand and forehead. Why 'hand' and 'forehead'? Because the hand is what you use to live and WORK with while the forehead symbolizes the center of your mind or beliefs, i.e., practices). "REMEMBER the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.9 Six days you shall labor, and do all your work,10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your

male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates.11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy." (Ex.20:8-11) (God says to REMEMBER and man forgets or even changes it to the 1st day of the week! The 7th day Sabbath identifies the Creator God,- the One that made everything. The 7th day is the ONLY day that God made holy and sanctified for holy/special purpose). "To them I will give in My house and within My walls a memorial, And a name better than that of sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name which will not be cut off. 6"Also the foreigners who join themselves to the LORD, To minister to Him, and to love the Name of the LORD, To be His servants, everyone who keeps from profaning the Sabbath And holds fast My covenant; 7 Even those I will bring to My holy mountain And make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar; For My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples." (Isa.56:5-7) (here God promises not only Israelites but gentiles that keep His Sabbath a great reward! Notice that servants are denoted by Sabbath observance. In other words if you do not keep God's Sabbath you are NOT His servant).

Here we have seen a few Biblical quotes about a special sign that God's people have. Do you notice the connection having to do with 'hand' and 'forehead'? God's sign has nothing to do with micro chips or national ID cards does it? By keeping God's Sabbath these people are marked as belonging to the True God! I presented only just a few verses here that pertain to the

Sabbath Day and it's importance to God. If you do an honest Biblical study on the Sabbath you will find it's confirmation. The Sabbath SIGN also shows that the sign of the Beast is a counterfeit of God's sign! Just like false Christ's to come (false Christianity),- this Beast (civil government) at the behest of the Image of the Beast (Image = false church) has the people/followers accept a false sign. The false sign of the Beast is the antithesis of God's sign. In other words since the 7th day Sabbath is God's sign then that denotes that the followers of the Beast observe another day in lieu of the Sabbath! Very simple isn't it? "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."(John 8:32) "Sanctify them in the Truth; Your Word is truth." (John 17:17)
