Not saying that is what I believe just sharing what I've heard and wanted your take on it. Thanks for sharing.Then why does it say we cannot buy or sell without it?
that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name. Revelation 13:17
This is not symbolic. It is literal. We are given a clue here. Money is the root of what? Elon Musk in the 2nd richest in the world and he has developed a body interface' cryptocurrency system which is an implant to allow us to buy and sell. It's patent number is WO/ 2020/ 060606. It is not proof of anything but it is something to keep an eye on because it is fitting the description.
I agree the scripture talks about buying and selling being impacted due to not having the mark; however something
can be symbolic and still have literal concrete consequence.
For example, not saying this is the Mark but just for example the LGBT movement; society is pushing this way
of thinking. And many who do not support it for example are losing their business work(hand) because they
have not taken on this way of thinking (head).
Once again I'm not saying that the LGBT movement is the mark of the beast (so please don't respond in that fashion),
just using it as an example of how something can be symbolic, such as a way of thinking or an idea, and there be
literal consequences for not supporting it.
I guess what I'm saying it something doesn't have to be a physical mark for there to be literal consequences (buying and selling).
Currently I don't know what the mark will be, but I think when the time comes, it will be very obvious to those
who are close to the Lord. Love and God Bless.
