What is the mark of the beast? When will it happen? What should we do to prepare for it?
Is it a microchip? A new religion? Something else?
I think it is probably going to be a microchip with all our personal information such as medical history, criminal history, money, etc. I also think there will be a global currency in the form of credit. But, I don't think that the current microchips are the actual mark, just a precursor to it. The mark is something people will be forced to take, or they won't be able to buy or sell. I think it's coming around 2015.
Since I wrote this page, I learned a lot about islam and how it fulfills Biblical prophecy. I think it's no coincidence that muslims believe 666 is their holy number. The 666 in Greek looks like "bism allah" in arabic,(in the name of allah). The muslims wear this mark, which is also a number and a name, on their foreheads and right arms. The muslims also like to kill Christians and Jews by beheading, which is exactly the way the martyrs are killed in Rev. 20:4.
Very insightful commentary Chad. Thank You!
Being obedient to the WORD of YHWH is not adding to or taking away from His WORD. Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness Against Your Neighbor! You are deceived Chandler and need to repent. The Books of the Prophets interpret themselves and do not need your private interpretations.
Chandler Fulton said:
MUCH caution is in order when we approach the prophesies of Revelation. Revelation 22 states that if we add anything to the prophecy of Revelation, Elohim will add to us the plagues that are written in this book. If we take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, Elohim will take away our share of the tree of life and the set-apart city, which are written in this book.
There is a definite lack of fear and reverence for YHWH when people start spiritualizing the prophecies of Revelation.
You will remember when these things come to pass that I told you beforehand of them, but you were too prideful and sure of your symbolic "interpretations" that you learned from other men to listen to me. You will know that a man spoke to you with the spirit of prophecy but you were too stiffnecked and uncircumcised in ears to listen. May YHWH have mercy on you and change your heart, is my prayer for you.
The only "MAN" I listen to is the Son of Man, Yahusha. Chandler, you are just a "man" and definitely do not know or have the spirit of prophecy. I hope only for blessings upon you and your understanding. Shalom!
Remember that I told you of the beasts on the day you go into your inner room to hide.
I don't always agree with John but he is on pretty solid ground when he uses the bible to interpret the bible. There is symbolic and literal truths to the prophecies. Two people with seperate views can both be right. I am curious on how you came up with Nimrod being resurected...I don't remember any literal reference to him. The book of Daniel and Revelations seem to be telling the same story. When the book of Revelations talks about adding and subtracting to the prophecy don't you think it is referring to the ones doing the writing?
The leviathan is prominent in the haggadic literature in connection with the advent of the Messiah. Referring to Job xl. 30 (Hebr.), "and the pious ones  shall make a banquet of it," R. Johanan says that at the time of the resurrection a banquet will be given by God to the righteous, at which the flesh of the leviathan will be served (B. B.l.c.). Even the hunting of the leviathan will be a source of great enjoyment to the righteous. Those, says R. Judan bar Simon, who have not taken part in pagan sports will be allowed to participate in the hunting of the leviathan and of the behemoth (Lev. R. xiii. 3). Gabriel will be charged with the killing of the monster; but he will not be able to accomplish his task without the help of God, who will divide the monster with His sword. According to another haggadah, when Gabriel fails, God will order the leviathan to engage in a battle with the ox of the mountain ("shor habar"), which will result in death to both of them (B. B. 75a; Pesiḳ. p. 188b). Not only will the flesh of the leviathan furnish food for the table of the righteous, but there will be a great supply of it in the markets of Jerusalem (B. B. l.c.). From the hide of the leviathan God will make tents for the pious of the first rank, girdles for those of the second, chains for those of the third, and necklaces for those of the fourth. The remainder of the hide will be spread on the walls of Jerusalem; and the whole world will be illuminated by its brightness (ib.).
The first beast of Revelation Chapter 13 is a real, literal, fire-breathing dragon that will be released from the Abyss by Ha Shatan (Satan) in order to forcibly rule the earth, and to wipe out the Set-apart Ones (Yahuweh's people).
Let's look at what the Scriptures say about this monster:
Rev 13:1 And he (Ha Shatan) stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast (Leviathan) coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads names of blasphemy.
Rev 13:2 And the beast (Leviathan) I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon (Ha Shatan) gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority.
Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads, as having been slain to death, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the earth marvelled after the beast (Leviathan).
Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon (Ha Shatan) who gave authority to the beast (Leviathan). And they worshipped the beast(Leviathan), saying, "Who is like the beast (Leviathan)? Who is able to fight with him?"
Rev 13:5 And he (Leviathan) was given a mouth speaking great matters and blasphemies, and he was given authority to do so forty-two months.
Rev 13:6 And he (Leviathan) opened his mouth in blasphemies against Elohim, to blaspheme His Name, and His Tent, and those dwelling in the heaven.
Rev 13:7 And it was given to him (Leviathan) to fight with the set-apart ones and to overcome them. And authority was given to him over every tribe and tongue and nation.
Rev 13:8 And all those dwelling on the earth, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the slain Lamb, from the foundation of the world shall worship him (Leviathan).
Rev 13:9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
Again, the first beast of Revelation Chapter 13 is a real, literal, fire-breathing dragon that will be released from the Abyss by Ha Shatan (Satan). Ha Shatan is described as a red dragon in Revelation 12, but Ha Shatan is NOT the first beast described in Revelation 13! Ha Shatan is furious that he cannot kill the woman in Revelation 12, so he releases an ancient, literal, fire-breathing monster (Leviathan) from the Abyss (Rev. 13) to make war with the set-apart ones and rule the earth!
NOTE: Ha Shatan, the Red Dragon of Rev.12, is described as having "seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems". The first beast of Rev. 13 (Leviathan--a literal dragon) is described as having "ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads"!! The dragon of Rev. 12 is NOT the same as the first beast of Rev. 13!! Do you see the distinction?
Other Passages that Speak of Leviathan:
Rev 11:3 "And I shall give unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clad in sackcloth."
Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that are standing before the Elohim of the earth.
Rev 11:5 And if anyone wishes to harm them, fire comes out from their mouth and consumes their enemies. And if anyone wishes to harm them, he has to be killed in that way.
Rev 11:6 These possess authority to shut the heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy. And they possess authority over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they wish.
Rev 11:7 And when they have ended their witness, the beast (Leviathan) coming up out of the pit of the deep shall fight against them, and overcome them, and kill them...
Rev 14:9 And a third messenger followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast (Leviathan) and his image, and receives his mark upon his forehead or upon his hand,
Rev 14:10 he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of Elohim, which is poured out undiluted into the cup of His wrath. And he shall be tortured with fire and sulphur before the set-apart messengers and before the Lamb.
Rev 14:11 "And the smoke of their torture goes up forever and ever. And they have no rest day or night, those worshipping the beast (Leviathan) and his image, also if anyone receives the mark of his name."
Rev 16:12 And the sixth messenger poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, in order to prepare the way of the sovereigns from the east.
Rev 16:13 And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon(Ha Shatan), and out of the mouth of the beast (Leviathan), and out of the mouth of the false prophet (Nimrod), three unclean spirits, as frogs,
Rev 16:14 for they are spirits of demons, doing signs, which go out to the sovereigns of the entire world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of YHWH the Almighty.
Rev 17:7 And the messenger said to me, "Why did you marvel? Let me explain to you the secret of the woman (Semiarimis) and of the beast (Leviathan) she rides, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
Rev 17:8 "The beast (Leviathan) that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the pit of the deep and goes to destruction. And those dwelling on the earth, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, shall marvel when they see the beast (Leviathan) that was, and is not, and yet is.
Note: Observe the last verse carefully! Leviathan "was" (existed before in ancient times--see Job 41); "is not" (is presently not on the face of the earth, but chained up in the Abyss within the earth); "is about to come up out of the pit of the deep" (Leviathan will be released from his prison--the Abyss-- by Ha Shatan); and "goes to destruction" (cast into the lake of fire with the false prophet Nimrod--see Rev. 19).
Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast (Leviathan), and the sovereigns of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to fight Him who sat on the horse and His army.
Rev 19:20 And the beast (Leviathan) was seized, and with him the false prophet (Nimrod) who worked signs in his presence, by which he led astray those who received the mark of the beast (Leviathan) and those who worshipped his image. The two were thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulphur.
Rev 20:10 And the devil, who led them astray, was thrown into the lake of fire and sulphur where the beast (Leviathan) and the false prophet (Nimrod)are. And they shall be tortured day and night forever and ever.
Note: Revelation 20:10 expressly says that Satan is cast into the lake of fire and sulphur, where the beast (Leviathan) and the false prophet (Nimrod) already are!!!

Dan 7:7 "After this I looked in the night visions and saw a fourth beast (Leviathan), fearsome and burly, exceedingly strong. And it had great iron teeth. It devoured and crushed, and trampled down the rest with its feet. And it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.

Dan 7:19 "Then I desired for certainty concerning the fourth beast (Leviathan), which was different from all the others, very fearsome, with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze, which devoured, crushed, and trampled down the rest with its feet...
1.) Daniel's beasts of Revelation 7 are literal, just as the beasts in Revelation are literal.
2.)The four beasts of Revelation 7 ARE ALSO the four messengers mentioned in Revelation 9:14.
I hope that everyone reading this will come around and read Revelation and Daniel again, and call on Yahuweh and YahuwehShua Messiah for truth. I promise you will not laugh when the seven-headed dragon Leviathan rises out of the sea--it will be a terrifying sight. Also, please seriously reflect on these passages:
Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads, as having been slain to death, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the earth marvelled after the beast.
Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon who gave authority to the beast. And they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to fight with him?”
Many that do not believe that this literal, fire-breathing dragon is coming will "MARVEL" when they see the beast. They will also worship him and Ha Shatan out of fear, in order to preserve their lives.
Rev 13:8 And all those dwelling on the earth, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the slain Lamb, from the foundation of the world shall worship him.
Rev 13:9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
Rev 13:10 He who brings into captivity shall go into captivity, he who kills with the sword has to be killed with the sword. Here is the endurance and the belief of the set-apart ones.
Rev 14:9 And a third messenger followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark upon his forehead or upon his hand,
Rev 14:10 he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of Elohim, which is poured out undiluted into the cup of His wrath. And he shall be tortured with fire and sulphur before the set-apart messengers and before the Lamb.
Rev 14:11 “And the smoke of their torture goes up forever and ever. And they have no rest day or night, those worshipping the beast and his image, also if anyone receives the mark of his name.”
Rev 14:12 Here is the endurance of the set-apart ones,1 here are those guarding the commands of Elohim and the belief of YahuwehShua.
My friend, this is serious. Just because you know that Messiah died for you and you know His name and our Father's name does not mean your name is in the Lamb's book. If your name is not in this book, this passage plainly says that YOU WILL WORSHIP LEVIATHAN when he comes. May all of us seek assurance from Messiah and our Father in heaven that we belong to them! May Yahuweh cause all to heed these warnings that I have given you! May Yahuweh open the eyes of all to see the truth of what I have written, for His esteem and your deliverance!
Dan 7:20 and concerning the ten horns that were on its head (Levaithan's), and of the other horn that came up, before which three fell – this horn (Nimrod) which had eyes and a mouth which spoke great words, whose appearance was greater than his fellows.
Isa 30:6 The message concerning the beasts of the South. Through a land of trouble and distress, from which came the lioness (Semiarimis) and lion (Nimrod), the adder and fiery flying serpent (Leviathan), they convey their riches on the backs of young donkeys, and their treasures on the humps of camels, to an unprofitable people,
Isa 30:7 even Mitsrayim, whose help is vain and empty. Therefore I have called her Rahab-HÄ•m-Shebeth.
Isa 30:8 And go, write it before them on a tablet, and inscribe it on a scroll, that it is for a latter day, a witness forever:
Isa 30:9 that this is a rebellious people, lying children, children who refuse to hear the Torah of YHWH”
Note: The beasts of Revelation are actually real creatures that you have not seen yet. Just because you have not seen them does not mean that they do not exist.
There is a real, literal, fire-breathing dragon that will be released from his prison in a few short years, in order to wage war against and annihiliate the set-apart ones. This may seem absurd to you, and impossible--which is why you and many others will be taken by surprise when this happens.
So you believe that there is no literal seven-headed creature described in Revelation 13, correct? Then are the following creatures described in Revelation 9 fictional or symbolic also? Please read this passage and tell me if these creatures released from the pit of the deep are fictional or not:
Rev 9:1 And the fifth messenger sounded, and I saw a star from the heaven which had fallen to the earth. And the key to the pit of the deep was given to it.
Rev 9:2 And he opened the pit of the deep, and smoke went up out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, also the air, because of the smoke of the pit.
Rev 9:3 And out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth, and authority was given to them as the scorpions of the earth possess authority.
Rev 9:4 And it was said to them that they shall not harm the grass of the earth, or any green matter, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of Elohim upon their foreheads.
Rev 9:5 And it was given to them that they should not kill them, but to torture them for five months. And their torture was like the torture of a scorpion when it stings a man.
Rev 9:6 And in those days men shall seek death and shall not find it. And they shall long to die, but death shall flee from them.
Rev 9:7 And the locusts looked like horses prepared for battle, and on their heads were crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.
Rev 9:8 And they had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth.
Rev 9:9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots of many horses running into battle.
Rev 9:10 And they have tails like scorpions, and stings. And in their tails is their authority to harm men five months.
Rev 9:11 And they have over them a sovereign, the messenger of the pit of the deep, whose name in HebÌ±rew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apolluon.
If I follow your logic that you use when approaching the fictional characters or symbolism of Revelation 13, then the characters of Revelation 9 must also not exist:
1.) there is no pit of the deep in the earth, and no key to unlock it, and no messenger to unlock the pit
2.) the smoke from this pit that does not exist will not REALLY darken the sun
3.)the "locust" creatures don't REALLY come up out of the pit of the deep
4.) the locust creatures don't REALLY have the faces of men, hair of women, teeth of lions, bodies like horses and tails like scorpions. They are just fictional or symbolic.
5.) these locust creatures are not REALLY commanded by Elohim not to hurt the people that have the seal of Elohim on their foreheads.
6.) this seal of Elohim does not REALLY exist it is symbolic
7.) the locust creatures don't REALLY torture for five months the rest of mankind who do not have the seal of Elohim on their foreheads.
I wrote all of this in an effort to make you see your unbelief and hardness of heart. We all have this unbelief present in our hearts to some degree, and oftentimes when we have it, we are not aware of it until someone shows us and wakes us up from our lull of sleep.
Most of you that read this will be alive when these horrible creatures are released to torture mankind. May you and I be found worthy to be sealed in our foreheads with His seal, so that we are protected and escape these horrors
The Second Beast of Revelation 13 is Nimrod, Who Will be Resurrected From Sheol
Nimrod, who is also called the false prophet, will dominate the earth with Leviathan the dragon, and will deceive mankind into worshipping, himself, Leviathan and Ha Shatan.
Here is what the Scriptures say about the coming of Nimrod:
Rev 13:11 And I saw another beast (Nimrod) coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
Rev 13:12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast (Leviathan) in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast (Leviathan), whose deadly wound (by Yahuweh's sword) was healed.
Rev 13:13 And he does great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from the heaven on the earth before men.
Rev 13:14 And he leads astray those dwelling on the earth because of those signs which he was given to do before the beast (Leviathan), saying to those dwelling on the earth to make an image (statue) to the beast (Leviathan) who was wounded by the sword, yet lived.
Rev 13:15 And there was given to him to give spirit to the image of the beast (Leviathan), that the image of the beast (Leviathan) should both speak and cause to be killed as many as would not worship the image of the beast (Leviathan).
Rev 13:16 And he causes all, both small and great, and rich and poor, and free and slave, to be given a mark upon their right hand or upon their foreheads,
Rev 13:17 and that no one should be able to buy or sell except he that has the mark or the name of the beast (Leviathan), or the number of his name.
Rev 13:18 Here is the wisdom! He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man (Nimrod), and his number is 666.
Rev 16:13 And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon (Ha Shatan), and out of the mouth of the beast(Leviathan), and out of the mouth of the false prophet(Nimrod), three unclean spirits, as frogs,
Rev 16:14 for they are spirits of demons, doing signs, which go out to the sovereigns of the entire world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of YHWH the Almighty.
Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast (Liwiathan), and the sovereigns of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to fight Him (Messiah) who sat on the horse and His army.
Rev 19:20 And the beast (Leviathan) was seized, and with him the false prophet (Nimrud) who worked signs in his presence, by which he led astray those who received the mark of the beast (Leviathan) and those who worshipped his image. The two were thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulphur.
Rev 20:10 And the devil, who led them astray, was thrown into the lake of fire and sulphur where the beast (Liwiathan) and the false prophet (Nimrod) are. And they shall be tortured day and night forever and ever.
2Th 2:1 Now concerning the coming of our Master YahuwehShua Messiah, and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers,
2Th 2:2 not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Master has come.
2Th 2:3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness (Nimrod) is revealed, the son of destruction,
2Th 2:4 who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of Elohim, proclaiming himself to be Elohim.
2Th 2:5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?
2Th 2:6 And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.
2Th 2:8 And then the lawless one (Nimrod) will be revealed, whom the Master YahuwehShua will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming.
2Th 2:9 The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders,
2Th 2:10 and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
2Th 2:11 Therefore Elohim sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false,
2Th 2:12 in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Eze 38:1 And the word of YHWH came to me, saying,
Eze 38:2 "Son of man, set your face against GogÌ„ (Nimrod), of the land of MagÌ„ogÌ„, the prince of Rosh, MeshekÌ, and TubÌal, and prophesy against him.
Eze 38:3 "And you shall say, ‘Thus says the Master YHWH, "See, I am against you, O Gog (Nimrod) the prince of Rosh, MeshekÌ, and TubÌal.
Eze 38:4 "And I shall turn you around, and I shall put hooks into your jaws, and shall lead you out, with all your army, horses and horsemen, clad perfectly, a great assembly with armour and shields, all of them handling swords.

Eze 38:8 "After many days you shall be called up. In the latter years you shall come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Yisra’el which had been a continual waste. But they were brought out of the gentiles, and all of them shall dwell safely.
Eze 38:9 "And you shall go up, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your bands and many peoples with you."
Eze 38:10 ‘Thus said the Master YHWH "And it shall be in that day that words arise in your heart, and you shall devise an evil plan:
Eze 38:11 "And you shall say, ‘Let me go up against a land of unwalled villages, let me go to those at rest who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,’
Eze 38:12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the gentiles, acquiring livestock and goods, who dwell in the middle of the land.
Eze 38:13 "ShebÌa, and DedÌan, and the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions shall say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to bear away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?’ " ’
Eze 38:14 "Therefore, son of man, prophesy, and you shall say to GogÌ„ (Nimrod), ‘Thus said the Master YHWH, "In that day when My people Yisra’Ä•l dwell safely, would you not know?
Eze 38:15 "And you shall come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great assembly and a mighty army.
Eze 38:16 "And you shall come up against My people Yisra’Ä•l like a cloud, to cover the land – in the latter days it shall be. And I shall bring you against My land, in order that the gentiles know Me, when I am set apart in you, O GogÌ„ (Nimrod), before their eyes."
Eze 38:17 ‘Thus said the Master YHWH, "Are you the one I spoke of in former days by My servants the prophets of Yisra’Ä•l, who prophesied for years in those days, to bring you against them?
Eze 38:18 "And it shall be on that day, on the day when GogÌ„ (Nimrod) comes against the land of Yisra’el" declares the Master ×™×”×•×”, "that My wrath shall come up in My face.
Eze 38:19 "For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken, ‘On that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Yisra’el,
Eze 38:20 so that the fish of the sea, and the birds of the heavens, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping creatures that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. And the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall fall to the ground.’

Eze 38:23 "And I shall exalt Myself and set Myself apart, and I shall be known in the eyes of many nations. And they shall know that I am YHWH ’
Note: Gog is another name for Nimrod. There are other ancient pagan names for this man. Quetzalcoatl IS Nimrod. So is Baal-Peor, Molech, Zoroaster, Hercules, Marduk, Osiris, Buddah, Tammuz, Thor, Gad, Mithras, Bacchus, Saturn, Ashshur, Gog, Beliya'al etc.. Research it for yourself, and you will see that Nimrod is worshipped all over the world in many different cultures, nations, and languages. You see, all the world was of one language when the tower of Babel was built. All the world served and worshipped the Tyrant/King Nimrod. Then Yahuweh scattered the gentiles over all the earth and gave each group different languages. The nations still worshipped Nimrod, but now they called him by different names, since they instantly spoke a different language.
The Masons worship Nimrod also. In their rites, the brotherhood are told to "weep for Osiris". Osiris, in the Egyptian heiroglyphics, is predicted to come back from the dead and rule the earth. There are millions of masons in the world, and they will be ready to worship and follow their messiah Nimrod/Osiris, the anti-messiah, who is the false prophet, when he comes. Search the other pagan religions of the world, and you will see similar predictions about a coming messiah.
Eze 39:1 "And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog (Nimrud), and you shall say, ‘Thus said the Master YHWH, "See, I am against you, O Gog (Nimrod), the prince of Rosh, MeshekÌ and TubÌal,

Chandler, we should always look for the most literal fulfillment of prophecy when possible, except when the prophecies themselves say otherwise. Stop taking things out of context in order to support your own pet theories!
Nimrod will not be ressurected from the dead until the 1000 year millenium is finished. LOL
Read the scripture before you start making wild predictions.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
5But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.
I don't have to prove to you anything, but I simply tried to tell you the truth about the mark of the beast. So far you have only mocked and ridiculed the fact that the beasts are literal beasts and the mark is a literal mark.
I have to cease answering you, for you are wise in your own eyes. Only, remember, when the literal beasts rise up and impose a literal mark on mankind or they cannot buy or sell, that you were forewarned ahead of time. These events will take the whole world by surprise, and all mankind will wonder at the beast and say, "who is like the beast? who can make war with him?". I fear for you that you will be among that number.
So Godzilla is going to come up out of the sea and force everyone to get a barcode or microchip or they can't go down to their local Wal-Mart and buy some Pepsi or Triscuits?
Hollywood has got you so deceived. It's sooo...sad.
The only one "wise in your own eyes" is you and you should repent and stop deceiving people with your warped interpretations of prophecy.
Why don't you actually start reading the whole of Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation and not just skip to the last book and try to guess the outcome.
