Is the COVID-19 Vaccine the Mark of the Beast?


The moment the discussion regarding a COVID-19 vaccine started, there have been questions related to the Mark of the Beast. When the talk of the vaccine and the potential of an ID card being included, that discussion escalated.


Is the COVID-19 Vaccine the Mark of the Beast?


In this article, I will examine from scripture whether this is true or now. We will look at different questions and determine what the Bible says.


Question One - Is it possible for a person to get the Mark of the Beast today?


Interestingly, there are some people who fear that they have already taken the Mark of the Beast. They may have blasphemed God or made an impulsive statement of allegiance to the devil. Others worry about the chip in their credit card. Some have been told that worshiping the Lord on Sunday instead of the Sabbath constitutes accepting the Mark of the Beast. Now the covid vaccine is being lumped in with all these other things. But the question needs to be asked, is it possible to receive the Mark of the Beast today, at this moment?


No! And there are important reasons why it is impossible to get the Mark of the Beast now. That is because the mark is not yet in place. It is not here at the moment. That is not saying the technology is not available or that it may not be developed, but it has not been brought forward to our world. This leads to the second thing related to this. The Mark of the Beast has not been put in place yet because the Antichrist (the beast) has not been revealed.


Let’s read Revelation 13:16-17 He causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one may buy or sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name.


In this passage, the He who causes all to receive this mark is the Beast, or the Antichrist. It will be the Antichrist who calls for and puts the necessity of this mark in place. That has not happened yet.


What is the Mark of the Beast?


From this passage, we see that the Mark of the Beast is some seal that Antichrist's followers will take in allegiance to prove their loyalty to him. This mark will be directly tied to the worship of the Beast. From this passage, we don’t know what this mark will look like. We do know that it will be placed on the right hand or forehead.


The Mark of the Beast cannot exist until the Beast himself is in power, and it will be the Antichrist who demands it.


Question - Can you take the Mark of the Beast by accident?


The answer is no. You will not be able to take it by accident or even held down and forced into it. Those who decide to take it or not will be given a choice, and some will choose to take it, and in doing so, they pledge loyalty to the Antichrist, and some won’t, and in doing so, they pledge their devotion to God.

There will likely be given a choice of taking the mark or face the consequence of not taking it, which as we read above is not being able to buy or sell or do business, but will escalate to what we read in another passage. Revelation 20:4 I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and the authority to judge was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness of Jesus and for the word of God. They had not worshipped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.


In case you are wondering, here is what the Bible says is the eternal consequence of taking the Mark of the Beast. Revelation 14:9-11 A third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out in full strength into the cup of His anger. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. The smoke of their torment will ascend forever and ever. They have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image and whoever receives the mark of his name.”


Conclusion


I hope this helps and clears up whether the COVID-19 vaccine is the Mark of the Beast. That doesn’t mean we should not be careful and question whether we should take it or not. I have another post regarding that, which you can find here - .
