The Mark of the Beast

(Revelation 13:16-17)

John said that the false prophet caused all men to receive a mark on their right hand or their forehead.1Rev 13:16 The meaning was from Exodus 13:9: “It shall serve to you as a sign on your forehead and a reminder on your hand that the law of the Lord may be in your mouth.”

In Daniel 6, we learn about the law that could not be changed, but in Chapter 7, we are told that the beast will intend to change time and law.2Dan 7:25 There could be no greater change of time and law than the changing of the Sabbath day. John said that no one could buy nor sell unless they received the mark;3Rev 13:17  no one could do business on the Sabbath day unless they received the mark of the beast.
