Question: Do you think that the Covid 19 vaccination jab has anything to do with receiving the mark of the beast?

QUESTION: What is the mark of the beast and how can one avoid having such a mark? ANSWER: That is a good question. It is a question that Jehovah’s Witnesses should seriously reconsider. But to better appreciate the significance of the 666 mark of the beast the question ought to be rephrased to ask: What and when is the mark of the beast?

The Mark of the Beast

2019-09-29T15:13:06-04:00August 3rd, 2010|Page One|

This is a revised and expanded article that appeared on the original Watchman site in 2005.

The April 1st, 2004, Watchtower Magazine carried an article on the meaning of Revelation’s mysterious 666 – the name and mark of the wild beast. Under the subheading on page four, the Watchtower asks the rhetorical question: “Do you enjoy solving a mystery?” Notably, that statement implies that the Watchtower Society has already solved the mystery. But have they really? In keeping with the apostolic exhortation: “Do not believe every inspired expression, but test the inspired expressions to see whether they originate with God,” we do well to take a closer look at this important topic.

What is the wild beast in Revelation that was, but is not?

QUESTION: The Scriptures depicting the eighth king, seem more like a riddle, such as Samson's riddle to the Philistines, than a statement. For instance, how can a kingdom "that was", still not be around or already present? Since this takes a mind with wisdom, isn't Revelation telling us that the 8th king is already here? Or that it has already been, but is cloaked so-to-speak, rather [...]
