3 Bible Tips: Avoiding the Mark of the Beast
1. Don't fall for false signs and miracles. To know what is going on,
watch world events in light of Bible prophecy instead (see "The
End of 'This Present Evil Age'" from the booklet You
Can Understand Bible Prophecy).
"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" (Revelation 13:13-14).
2. Don't follow the ways of the Beast in what you do (symbolized by your right hand) or think (forehead). Have the marks of God instead (see Exodus 31:13; Deuteronomy 6:6-8).
"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" (Revelation 13:16).
3. Trust in God for the help to be able to reject the mark of the Beast and withstand the consequences.
"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" (Revelation 13:17; God gives His people patience and faith, Revelation 13:10).
