  1. Nice Blog🙂



    • hi jabelah

      You have interesting stories on your blog. I am happy to hear that your mom got the blood she needed. I wonder about the crystals. What kind of crystals they are.

  2. Hi Marianne,

    I really like your blog! I tried to leave a comment on your post about the mark of the beast, but the comments section there was closed. Hope you don’t mind me posting here, but it may have some relevance here also. I am the author of a new book called Unveiling the Apocalypse, and specialised in Hebrew and Aramaic for my degree in theology. In my book I argue that the mark of the beast described by John is a parody of the Jewish practice of wearing phylacteries – which are small square-shaped boxes containing pieces of scripture that are worn on the hand or forehead during prayer services, in accordance with the commands given in Deut 6:8.
    Each phylactery (alternatively known as tefillin) bears a Hebrew letter shin, which is used to represent the name of God – El Shaddai. The other letters of this name (daleth and yod) are formed from the knots that bind the tefillin to the hand. The mark of the beast, which contains a number representing the name of the Antichrist, parodies the name of God symbolised in the Jewish phylacteries. As practicing Jews, Jesus and the apostles would also have practiced the custom of wearing tefillin, and the vast majority of scholars recognise that the author of Revelation would primarily have had this image in mind when composing the section concerning the mark of the beast in the Apocalypse. So the real mark of the beast will resemble a box shaped object worn temporarily in the hand, rather than an invisible and permanent microchip implant.
    In a blog post (http://unveilingtheapocalypse.blogspot.com/2011/08/mark-of-beast.html ) I show how the prophecy of the mark of the beast could already be fulfilled in the use of NFC technology in modern smartphones. Smartphones with NFC technology (which enables the user to easily make transactions by “bumping” their phones against other devices) are seen by modern analysts as replacing credit cards within the next decade (see this link: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-08-02/at-t-verizon-said-to-target-visa-mastercard-with-smartphones.html), thus paving the way for a cashless society. As I argue in my book, no right-minded Christian would ever accept a microchip implant as a means of engaging in commerce. But they wouldn’t think twice about using cell phones – which actually resembles the Jewish custom the original prophecy of the mark of the beast even more closely.
    I argue that the fact that this commerce will be conducted over the world wide web (www) could explain how no-one will be able to buy or sell without using the “number” 666 in this respect. The Hebrew letter waw (also known as vav by Jews of eastern european descent) is transliterated into the modern Latin alphabet as the letter w. The numerical value of this letter in the Hebrew numeral system is 6. So the letters www have the numerical value of six six six in the Hebrew alphabet. Although this is not six hundred and sixty six, theologians recognise that the number 666 would have easily been understood as three sixes by someone who spoke Hebrew or Aramaic, and it was as three sixes that this number had its primary symbolic value. The three sixes parody the three sevens of the Holy Trinity, and the three eights of the gematric value of Jesus’ name in Greek – which was 888.
    The three sixes represents the unholy trinity of the Beast, Dragon and False Prophet.

      I was really seeing the point about the phylacteries, until you switched to the cell phones. No one wears their cell phones on their heads. How do you make that correlation? and how does shin, dalid, yod remain a name inside a cell phone? switching to 666 is not the name of god? I see how v v v = www but it is not longer a number, but a letter.

      If the Antichrist had people literally put his name, or initials on people’s hands and foreheads, I could see how that would glorify him directly, and indicate worship.

      • Hi Marianne,

        You raise a few good points, and I will try to address them…
        People tend to hold cell phones up to their heads while using them – or alternatively there is currently technology called “tv glasses” with small built-screens which allows the user to see an image that appears to be a large tv screen (see this link: http://www.tech-kitten.com/2007/11/02/ipodiphone-video-glasses/). These devices, once hooked up to smartphones and coupled with voice recognition technology are mooted to be a viable replacement of laptop computers (or at the very least a popular alternative). We also already see hands-free cell phones being worn around the head on a regular basis (by drivers for example).
        I argue that the mark of the beast is an antithetical parallelism of the practice of wearing phylacteries – i.e. it is aping it in a twisted version. The name of God is substituted for the number which represents the name of the Antichrist – which is 666. Scholars are unianimous that the author of the Apocalypse uses gematria here, which calls for the numerals to substituted for letters. This is how the number of the beast is also the number of a man. The original (preterist) meaning of this “number” referred to the name Nero Ceasar, which when transliterated from Greek into Hebrew, had the numerical value 666.
        The original 1st century pronouncation of the letter waw (or vav if you prefer) was sounded as a “w”. The “v” sound used today in some Jewish circles comes from the eastern european dialect where “w” is sounded as “v”.
        The letters www (which have the numerical equivalent of six six six in Hebrew) is an acronym for the world wide web. It is the world wide web (or www) which is “inside” the cell phones, or rather is the means which enables commerce through these devices. Also try buying anything that hasn’t got the letters www imprinted on the packaging – it’s almost impossible!
        If we look at the wording of the passages of Revelation concerning the mark of the beast, it states that the inhabitants of the earth would be decieved into accepting it as a means of commerce – not that they would embrace it in an open form of worship. The vast majority of people are good – I don’t think a large portion of humanity would openly embrace worship of Satan. People would have to be tricked into recieving it. Also I don’t believe that anyone who accepts this mark through deciet or trickery will be eternally damnned – but it is possible that it will cause a cancer epidemic related to the microwave radation from cell phones (see Rev 16:2: “And the first angel went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshiped his image”).

        • hello Emmett

          I do not see believing Christians who happen to use the web as in bondage to Satan. We are communicating that way right now. And I do not consider either of us to have “accepted the mark.”

  3. Nor do I – otherwise I wouldn’t be using it…
    I believe that the prophecy of the mark of the beast cannot have any spiritual consequences unless it is recognised as such collectively by the Church, who as the bride of Christ is guided by the Holy Spirit. The prophecy states that “everyone” would be decieved into accepting the mark of the beast, which includes good, believing Christians. This doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone who uses such technology will be condemned. If however, the Church collectively reached the decision that the prophecy of the mark of the beast was fulfilled in such technology, this would change things completely. After such a decision was made, there would be no grey area – it would definitely be black and white. My arguement is that there is already sufficient conditions for the Church to reach a decision on this matter, and we do not need to wait for a literal number to be branded permenantly in people’s hands. Besides, if it were to happen in such a literal manner, I don’t think anyone would accept it. Deception would have to be involved.
    For now this is merely a hypothesis – it’s not like I was told this by God, it is a personal theory. Personally, I don’t want to be right on this one, but I think there is a strong case here…
    I like your treatment of the mega-tsunami threat posed by Cumbre Vieja by the way – I have done some research on this subject myself, and believe this volcano could be the “great mountain, burning with fire” being thrown into the sea in Rev 8 9 (see http://unveilingtheapocalypse.blogspot.com/2011/08/mega-tsunami.html).
    It is difficult presenting these theories in a few paragraphs – I go into a lot more detail in my book.
    I would like to send you a PDF file of the book, if could email me at unveilingtheapocalypse@live.co.uk, I could send it over to you…
