The RFID Microchip and the Mark of the Beast
The mystery of the number 666 revealed!
"Then 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 himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name"
"He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666" (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).
Referring to the last generation, this could only be speaking of a cashless society. Why? Revelation 13:17 tells us that we cannot buy or sell unless we receive the mark of the beast. If physical money was still in use, we could buy or sell with one another without receiving the mark. This would contradict scripture that says we must have the mark to buy or sell. So, it deduces itself to this conclusion.
These verses could not be referring to something purely spiritual as scripture references two physical locations (the right-hand and forehead) stating the mark will be on one "OR" the other. I think the knockout for the "purely spiritual" argument for the mark of the beast can be found in Revelation 13:16 in contrast to Exodus 13:16 (notice same chapter and verse numbers--God's Holy Spirit put this together for a reason, so we may not be deceived!). So, let's compare these two verses.
In Revelation 13:16 we read, "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand OR on their foreheads."
While in Exodus 13:16 we read, "It shall be as a sign (regarding God speaking to the children of Israel concerning His law) on your hand AND as frontlets between your eyes, for by strength of hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt."
Notice, in Revelation 13:16, the mark of the beast (a mark signifies something physical) will be in either the right-hand OR the forehead, while in Exodus 13:16, we read of a sign regarding God's law on the hand AND on the frontlets between the eyes (both places, instead of one OR the other like the mark of the beast) of God's people concerning keeping His laws (something purely spiritual).
So, what makes sense? When Revelation 13:16 tells us that the mark of the beast will go either the right-hand OR the forehead, regarding us being able to buy or sell, it is referring to something physical. The notion to get the mark on the forehead over the right-hand could be associated with someone who does not have a right-hand, or even two arms, therefore the next best place would be the forehead, or there could be other reasons why.
Also, how could you determine who truly has a spiritual mark so that they may buy or sell? And, as you will read further in this article, to have the mark of the beast is the same to have the name of the beast, or the number of its name. You will begin to see even more clearly why this mark cannot be something purely spiritual!
(I drive this point home, as there is deception out there regarding the mark of the beast representing an enforcement of Sunday law Sabbath over Saturday (something purely spiritual), but this is lie from the devil. The devil knows how tempting it will be for people, even God's people, to give in to the beast system so they may be able to live a "normal" life.

Media Propaganda promoting the RFID Microchip
You may have seen it making the spotlight with major news outlets, a technology that they are touting as the future that belongs to our world. What is it? A cashless society led by a new and convenient way to store your wallet, an implanted RFID microchip.
We can see throughout societies history how we have been conditioned through the process of convenience to be willing to accept new technologies. More specifically with how we are able to buy and sell.
From using tangible currency in the form of bank notes and coins, to then entering the digital realm with debit and credit cards, we really are the generation that has seen such rapid growth in technology. Today, we can find these same cards evolving with security chips embedded in them, and some even having RFID chips, including passports. On top of all of this, we have seen in the past years a surge in the digital banking system through crypto currency such as Bitcoin. These are all stepping stones that are guiding us closer and closer to the reality of God's word, to what was foretold almost two-thousand years ago in the book of Revelation.
Would you allow a microchip to be placed inside your body that has the ability to track where you go and what you do? How about if you knew it matched perfectly with biblical prophecy where God warns us not to take it during the future reign of the Antichrist and false prophet, otherwise we will receive the fullness of His wrath (Revelation 14:9-11)?
Why? Because we are ultimately giving our allegiance to Satan over Jesus when we accept the mark of the beast. In this we are giving worship to the beast over God (YHWH) during a time of trouble when God will test the whole world to see who loves the truth (Jesus) or the lie (Satan) before He puts an end to the wicked on earth and in the heavens.
Here is where it really starts to come together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning the RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this microchip in the late 1960's.
"Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about a one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).
Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.
Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.
Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16–18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.” Carl believes this refers to a hypodermic needle (see photo).
Mr. Sanders asked a Boston Medical Center doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor responded that if the microchip broke inside a human body, the lithium would cause a severe and painful wound filled with pus. This is what the book of Revelation says:
"And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image" (Revelation 16:2).
You may wonder, regarding the microchip shown in this article, while it fits into the hand easily, how can it fit in the forehead of a person? I believe this RFID microchip shown in this article is only a forerunner to the final product that may be something much smaller. As is the case, technology advances quickly.
During his time with working on developing this RFID microchip, Mr. Sanders was working for the Lucent Technologies company. The computer that Sanders was using was a "Data-Net 30" that had a 18 bit name divided in 3 groups of 6 bits (6, 6, 6).
Now this is an interesting bit of information as we move unto unlocking the meaning behind calculating the number 666.
What Is the Name of the Beast, the Number of Its Name?
What does It mean to calculate 666?
What I first want to mention, before I share what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me concerning the number of the beast, is that God confirms in threes. We can see this throughout scripture:
"For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one" (1 John 5:7 NKJV).
"and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).
"...Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!" (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).
There are many more examples, but I thought I would just share three of them to make the point.
Examining Revelation 13:16,17,18, the first group of three I would like to point out is that the mark of the beast is described in three separate verses, 16, 17 and 18.
The next three I see is in verse 16, "He causes all..." is followed by three contrasting categories of people,
1 - "both small and great,
2 - rich and poor,
3 - free and slave...".
Then unto verse 17, it opens with, "and that no one may buy or sell except one who has...", followed by three explanations of what one must have to buy or sell,
1 - "...the mark
2 - or the name of the beast,
3 - or the number of his name".
Found in verse 18, we read "Let him who has understanding calculate...", which is followed by,
1 - "the number of the beast,
2 - for it is the number of a man:
3 - His number is 666".
The last three I see is the number "6" being used three times in a row. The reason I'm making this point about God confirming in three is because it is the key to unlocking how to calculate the number 666.
Throughout the centuries there have been people trying to calculate numbers based on titles and names that come up to the number 666 to identify one person, the Antichrist; but from Revelation 13:18, I do not see where God is telling us to count up to 666, but rather to count the number of the beast. This number is identified as 666. So the verse is telling us to count the number 666.
What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes is key to unlocking the number 666. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally by using the rule of three based on the number.
We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start.
We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60 because there are no zeros in between or at the end of 666.
The only logical option is 6+6+6=18.
What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18 (there are a total of 18 verses in Revelation Chapter 13), being the third verse out of the three verses that describe the mark of the beast in Revelation 13:16,17,18. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3x6=18, or 6+6+6=18.
Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a "+" symbol in between 666 are:
• 66+6=72 and 6+66=72.
• Add both 72's together and you get 144.
Why the number 144 is worth our attention is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail:
"Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads..." (Revelation 14:1).
Now if you add up all three numbers from counting 666 by moving the "+" symbol around, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is compelling about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was originally written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.

Side note: (We know by scripture to add up 666, but why "divide" 144,000 by 162 (even though the numbers confirm themselves)?
The number 144,000 is a total number that is "divided" into 12 groups of 12,000 of all the 12 tribes of the children of Israel (Revelation 7).
If you divide 12,000 by 162, you get "74". What is intriguing about the number "74", is, Revelation "7:4" is the introduction verse where it first ever speaks of the number 144,000 in the Bible and how it divides down into groups of 12, with each tribe having 12,000 people each)
Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply the same formula that was used to count 666, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:
"Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads" (Revelation 4:2-4).
Now if you take:
you get 24+96+96=216.
Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666.
Remember that this was the same exact formula we used to count the number 666 that ultimately brought forth the number 888.
Click here to read side note 2 - More numerical confirmations
Side note: (As shown in the first side note above, likewise , if you now divide 12,000 by 216, we get "55".
The number 216 was the number that came about from counting 888 by moving the "+" symbol around in three possible positions. Remember that "888" represents Jesus who is the Lamb, and counting all three numbers (8+8+8) equals "24" that represents the 24 elders.
Out of the 404 verses in the book of Revelation, the "elders" are only mentioned in 12 verses, and only a few of them specifically mention the elders and Jesus together. Revelation "5:5" being one of them)
Here is a quick recap to demonstrate how this formula confirms itself as being the true way to count 666:
1: 6+6+6=18 » 66+6=72 » 6+66=72 » 18+72+72=162
2: 144,000 divided by 162=888
3: 8+8+8=24 » 88+8=96 » 8+88=96 » 24+96+96=216
4: 144,000 divided by 216=666
1: 6+6+6=18 » 66+6=72...
As you can see, it is perpetual. And remember that we consistently used a formula that worked in threes being the number that God uses for confirmation.
As when a key enters a lock aligning all the pins to unlock a door, with using the same formula of counting by placing the "+" symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a way?
This all cannot just be a coincidence. Just as scripture confirms scripture, likewise God, who created numbers for us to use, uses them to confirm scripture with itself.
Here is another calculation...144,000 divided by 6, divided by 6, divided by 6 (6,6,6) equals 666!

(The book of Revelation contains the use of the number 7 in various forms. For instance 7 seals, 7 trumpets, and 7 bowls.
What is interesting about the number 37 (three sevens) is if you divide any number that contains the same single digit three times in a row by the number 37, such as 111 to 999, it comes out to the value of if you were to add all three numbers up. This may sound confusing, but the examples below will illustrate the point.
For example: 888 divided by 37 equals 24. So 8+8+8=24. Or 666 divided by 37 equals 18. So 6+6+6=18. Could this be another way of God's word confirming itself that the mystery behind calculating the number 666 indeed is 18?
Another interesting point to note is that if you add up all the numbers from 1 to 36 (1+2+3+...+36), it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? Could this be a hint that we should add up three sixes instead of perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?
The book of Revelation contains 22 chapters, and the total number of verses are 404.
• 22 x 404 = 8,888 (Remember, the name Jesus adds up to 888 in Greek gematria)
• 404 divided by 22=18.3636363636 (6+6+6=18 (36 = three sixes, as mentioned above))
• 144,000 divided by 6, divided by 6, divided by 6 (666), equals: 666.
• 6x6=36 (three sixes) 6x6x6=216 - Remember, when we divide 144,000 by 216, we get the number 666.
Remember the numbers "162" and "216"? We divided 144,000 using both these numbers to get the values 666 and 888. If you apply the formula by moving the "+" symbol around in three different positions for both these numbers you would get these values:
• 216: (21+6=27 | 2+16=18 | 2+1+6=9) 27+18+9=54
• 162: (1+62=63 | 16+2=18 | 1+6+2=9) 63+18+9=90
"Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666" (Revelation 13:16-18).
"How much better to get wisdom than gold!
And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver" (Proverbs 16:16).
In the book of 1 Kings we read that Solomon received gold each year in the highlighted amounts of 420, 120, and 120 talents, adding to a total of 666 talents. This is no coincidence.
So let us apply the same rule of God confirming in threes.
We first have the number 666 broken down into three groups, 420, 120, and 120. Now we apply that same formula where we move the "+" symbol around in three possible combinations, in between three numbers, and by adding up all three values we get:
• 420: (42+0=42 | 4+20=24 | 4+2+0=6) 42+24+6=72
• 120: (1+20=21 | 12+0=12 | 1+2+0=3) 21+12+3=36
• 120: (1+20=21 | 12+0=12 | 1+2+0=3) 21+12+3=36
Revelation 21:17, "Then he (the angel) measured its wall (New Jerusalem): one hundred and forty-four cubits (144), according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel."
The general understanding for the length of a cubit is to be 18 inches. You measure from your elbow to the top of your middle finger.
• 144 (cubits) x 18 (inches in a cubit) = 2592 inches (2+5+9+2=18)
Now divide 2592 by 12 (12 inches in a foot, 12 tribes of Israel) = 216.
Remember 144,000 divided by 216 equals 666, and 6+6+6=18)
So what could this mean? Well, we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate, to social security, as well as our drivers license; being identified based on a system of ruler ship. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters (6+6+6).
As Revelation 13:17 says,
"...even that not any could buy or sell, except the one having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of its name" (Revelation 13:17, Literal Greek Translation).
Here we see the mark being identified as containing the name of the beast, and that name being identified as being a number. We can know that these attributes being described in Revelation 13:17 are all in one thing because the Bible warns us about receiving the mark, singular.
It is clear in Revelation 13:17 that we cannot buy or sell without the mark (being previously identified as a microchip), but why can't we buy or sell without the name of the beast, or the number of its name? What does that have to do with us buying or selling if the number of the beast only applies to identifying the Antichrist, as the common thought has been? So we need the number of the beast to buy or sell. What does this mean?
In the Greek (as previously mentioned, the New Testament was originally written in the Greek language), and other translations, you will notice the beast is described as an "it", instead of "him":
"here the wisdom is, the one having the mind let him calculate the number of the wild beast, number for of human it is, and the number of it 666" (Revelation 13:18, Greek Translation).
"Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for the number of man; and its number is six hundred sixty-six" (Jubilee Bible 2000 translation).
"In this situation wisdom is needed. Let the person who has insight figure out the number of the beast, because it is a human number. The beast's number is 666" (GOD'S WORD translation).
The reason I'm making this point is because when a translation says "His number is 666", this would imply a singular person, the Antichrist. But by saying "the number of it 666", implies that it is of the beast system as a whole.
The book of Revelation uses the term "beast" interchangeably from speaking of a person or a system, a kingdom, and the context will define its usage.
"here the wisdom is, the one having the mind let him calculate the number of the wild beast, number for of human it is, and the number of it 666" (Revelation 13:18, Greek Translation).
The Greek word "anthrōpos" being used in the verse above, Revelation 13:18, where it says "of human" is the Greek Strong's Concordance G444.
The first two definitions of the word are "a human being, whether male or female", and, "generically, to include all human individuals". Could the number of the beast apply to all mankind?
Could this be the name of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system that is identified by 18 characters? This would fit scripture that speaks of a mark that we must have in our right-hand or forehead to buy or sell (previously identified as a microchip), and that it also contains the number of the beast (information stored on that microchip) during a future cashless money society.
We can know the number of the beast cannot be to identify products, like a new barcode, to buy or sell because scripture says we cannot buy or sell without the number of the beast. What am I getting at? There will be instances where you could buy something someone made themselves and it wouldn't have a store branded identification on it. But for this number to be stored in the microchip, that is where it must be to conclude ultimately that we cannot buy or sell without having the number of the beast.
As previously mentioned, the number of the beast (6+6+6=18) is a "human number", definition "generically, to include all human individuals".
Revelation 13 tells us that a false prophet will rise up deceiving many to take the mark of the beast because of the miracles he does before men. At all costs do not take it!
"All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world" (Revelation 13:8).
Is your name written in the Lamb's book of life? Jesus says that we must be born again to enter the kingdom of God in the Gospel of John chapter 3.
Read the sermon at the bottom of this page titled "What Does It Mean to Believe In Jesus?" to find out what this means in detail.
"Then I saw another beast (the false prophet) coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast (the Antichrist) in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
