Question 1

Who gets a mark in the last days according to the Bible?


Revelation 7:2-3

"I saw another angel having the seal of the living God saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads."

Revelation 13:16-17

"He causes all…to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads 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 teaches that everybody in the very last days gets either sealed or marked; both the good and the bad. The servants of God are "sealed" in their foreheads while the wicked receive a "mark". Revelation tells us that the wicked receive this mark in their right hand or in their forehead. What does it mean to be marked in the "hand" or in the "forehead"? Using the Bible to interpret the symbolic meanings of these two words we find that the hand symbolizes the actions and deeds, and the forehead symbolizes the thoughts or desires. (see Ecclesiastes 9:10, Isaiah 59:6, Deuteronomy 6:6-8)
