Finding the Mark

Finding the Mark

Which people have the mark of the Beast? Answer Yes or No.

(A) Abercrombie joins a martial arts class given by a very experienced teacher, but with a reputation of being very dominating. Joe listens and obeys the teacher even though he doesn’t understand the reasoning behind some of the instructions.

(B) Richard is a member of a service group with a goal to paint the homes of elderly people and the leader is presenting a plan to reach the goal. The leader teams Richard up with Tim and Jock. Richard does not want o work with Tim and Jock, but he goes along because he does not want to rock the boat.

(C) Mark is a member of a gang. The gang leader says “Tonight, we are going to rob Joe’s Hardware Store. Mark you will be the getaway driver.”

Mark obeys without question.

(D) Jim is a Congressman listening to his majority leader present the reasons to support a farm bill. He hasn’t read all the details of the bill, but everything he hears sounds good and he votes for it.

(E) Paul is in an advanced history class given by a famous professor of great reputation. Paul himself has been a history buff all his life and sees many flaws in the teacher’s presentations. About a half dozen times in each class he raises his hand and attempts to set the teacher straight.

Let us go through the questions:

Which people have the mark of the Beast? Answer Yes or No.

(A) Abercrombie joins a martial arts class given by a very experienced teacher, but with a reputation of being very dominating. Joe listens and obeys the teacher even though he doesn’t understand the reasoning behind some of the instructions.

Even though the teacher was dominating he was still an earned authority and Abercombie seems to have made a mental rather than emotional decision to submit.

A mindless or emotional decision to submit indicates the mark of the Beast, but a rational decision to submit to superior ability does not.

Lesson: There is a time and place for everything. Not all submission to authority is negative. A positive submission for the sake of true learning elevates us above the Beast.

(B) Richard is a member of a service group with a goal to paint the homes of elderly people and the leader is presenting a plan to reach the goal. The leader teams Richard up with Tim and Jock. Richard does not want o work with Tim and Jock, but he goes along because he does not want to rock the boat.

Suppressed desires and feelings give unearned authorities a strong lever for control.

How many Nazi soldiers do you think felt a suppression of their true feelings when they were preparing the Jews for the gas chambers? If they had not of suppressed earlier on more harmless sounding activities then perhaps Hitler would have had a more difficult time in controlling them.

(C) Mark is a member of a gang. The gang leader says “Tonight, we are going to rob Joe’s Hardware Store. Mark you will be the getaway driver.”

Mark obeys without question.

Answer: Yes. This was a no brainer. I think everyone got this.

(D) Jim is a Congressman listening to his majority leader present the reasons to support a farm bill. He hasn’t read all the details of the bill, but everything he hears sounds good and he votes for it.

Comment: “Yes, he should have read all the details himself. He just ‘went along with the flow’.”

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. So is incomplete knowledge. A large element of control by unjust authority is selective incomplete knowledge that can completely distort reality.

The Congressman hears his fellow legislators talk about the farm bill and the information circulated about it comes from their party leaders and who knows where they got their information. There may be a rider in the bill to have all stray dogs shot on the spot.

Often when bad legislation has been passed those who passed it express alarm and explain that they were completely unaware of the implications of the bill.

(E) Paul is in an advanced history class given by a famous professor of great reputation. Paul himself has been a history buff all his life and sees many flaws in the teacher’s presentations. About a half dozen times in each class he raises his hand and attempts to set the teacher straight.

This gave many of you difficulty. People like Paul often pride themselves on their independence of thought and never in their wildest dreams would they consider that they are giving in to any unjust authority. He probably even has a bumper sticker saying:

Question Authority.

Even his friends and associates would see him as the last person on the earth who may be subject to Beastly authority.

After all, is not Paul taking on an established authority and putting him in his place? Isn’t that what we are supposed to do with the Beast?

Maybe, but the professor as a teacher of “great reputation” is not necessarily a part of the Beast. He has gone through many studies and hard work to earn his position and reputation and obviously is an earned authority to a degree. He also is forcing no one to attend his class. All are there through their own free will.

Now this teacher’s status does not mean that an amateur history buff like Paul cannot prove him wrong now and then and it may even be appropriate to disagree with the teacher now and again, but six times a day? Can you visualize the reaction of the students who came to the class to learn? This would be a major disruption. And what would be Paul’s motive in causing so much disturbance and distraction?

The motive would be to feed the ego and the ego is an instrument used by the Beast. If he can show the class that he is smarter than the teacher then the ego is inflated and in charge rather than a sincere desire for truth..

Control of the individual through the feeding and control of the ego is perhaps the greatest tool that the Beast has with which to work.

Several points of clarification may be in order.

Let us consider the second question.

(B) Richard is a member of a service group with a goal to paint the homes of elderly people and the leader is presenting a plan to reach the goal. The leader teams Richard up with Tim and Jock. Richard does not want o work with Tim and Jock, but he goes along because he does not want to rock the boat.

A reader was correct in the view that to yield your desire will for some altruistic reason does not always enhance the mark and power of the Beast. If, for instance, it would have caused a disruption to the work had the person voiced a concern for different partners then it may have been in the interest of the good of the whole to take the hand that is dealt.

On the other hand, there is no indication here that any harm would have been done to request new partners. Why should Richard work with someone he does not like when a simple request can put him in a better situation?

Any time that silence allows the seed of suppression to grow, fertile soil is being created for the growth of the power of the beast.

If you endure a bad situation in silence because you have made a mental decision to accept it then you have not given away your power.

But if you feel an emotion that needs to surface and your mind agrees with this, but you suppress because of anger or fear, then the Beast has a place to obtain a foothold.

Now let us look at perhaps the most controversial question:

(E) Paul is in an advanced history class given by a famous professor of great reputation. Paul himself has been a history buff all his life and sees many flaws in the teacher’s presentations. About a half dozen times in each class he raises his hand and attempts to set the teacher straight.

Some readers were confused by this because I have taught that to free ourselves from the beast we must be willing to challenge unearned authority, but it must be noted that the teacher was an earned authority.

There are two types of challenges that any teacher faces. The first are sincere questions for clarification or correction. Questions and comments to bring further light originates from the mental plane and not the emotional which is the seat of control for the beast.

The other type of challenge is the student who injects intellectual sounding dressing and challenges for the purpose of establishing himself as an intellectual or as being a better teacher than the teacher.

This type of “questioning” comes from the ego and the emotional body rather than the mind. We have seen some of this type of interruption in our group and we have experienced much disruption because of it and this is the reason we have a moderated group at present.

To understand the points I am trying to present here the overall principle that creates the Mark of the Beast must be grasped.

One of the main differences between a beast and a human is that an animal does not think or reason things out nor does he make conscious decisions, but his actions are governed by the herd instinct.

A human raises above the Mark of the Beast when he rises to his destiny and thinks things through after looking at all sides of the equation at hand and making a decision.

A person descends to carrying the Mark of the Beast when he forfeits his destiny and is ruled by emotion, ego or outside unearned authority rather than mind or soul.

If a person thinks he should speak up, but feels that he should not and goes with emotion rather than mind he is forfeiting the Mark of Humanity and being ruled by the Mark of the Beast, or animal nature.

If a person speaks up in class because he has thought things through and his thoughts will benefit the whole then he is amplifying his human nature.

But if he seeks to defeat his teacher as a lion devours his enemies then he again bears the Mark of there Beast.

Overall there are three marks.

(1) The Mark of the Beast – emotional control.

(2) The Mark of Humanity – mental control

(3) The Mark of God – spiritual control

Humanity is at a crisis point where it is seeking to stabilize itself in the mind and hovers between the yielding of the mind to emotion or soul.

Finding The Beast

Finding The Beast

There seems to be a major misunderstanding as to what the Beast is that I would like to comment on.

It seems that we are taking actions of others that we personally do not like and calling them the work of the Beast. In other words, many are seeing the Beast as a misuse of power.

Using this criteria the environmentalists would see the Beast as the lumber companies cutting down too many trees and the lumberjacks conversely would see the Beast as the environmentalists using their power to stop them from cutting trees to put them out of work.

The consumer sees the big oil companies as the Beast for protecting their territory and the big oil companies see the Government as the Beast for preventing them from drilling on public lands.

Which side is the Beast on?

Answer: Neither has anything to do with the Beast. 99.9% of all people, groups and business will act in their self interest and in doing so those who do not have their interests served by the self interest of others will feel a loss and sometimes ill will.

When entities are given the freedom to act in their self interest will they always act for the good of the whole?

Answer: No. Their decisions will almost always be in their own interest and this will sometimes be contrary to the good of the whole, but on the positive side, that which is good for the individual entity is often good for the whole and thus by allowing the freedom to be selfish we also allow the whole to be healthy for a dominating good is at play.

What happens when we see the Beast as being a selfish power we do not like and try to correct this by force?

Example: The old Soviet empire is a good example. There every attempt was made to eliminate selfishness and the people were miserable, because they were looking in the wrong direction for the Beast.

Example of people free to be selfish, free to be wrong and free to misuse power: The early United States where was experienced the greatest rise to power and prosperity in the history of the world.

So if big oil companies are not the Beast for attempting to prevent the little guy from displacing them, and Bill Gates is not the Beast for putting little software companies out of business then where is the Beast?

Answer: The Beast is much bigger and more pervasive than any corporation or organization and affects every business and every organization and every person on the earth.

If some person, company or government is not the Beast, then what or where is the Beast?

Give an example of the true Beast in action.

The fact that Bill Gates may act to put the little guy out of business may not be the Beast, but there are actions that Bill could take (and does) in this direction that makes him (and employees) agents of the Beast. Give a possible example.

A reader figures that the mindless following after DOS because IBM was behind it is an example of Beastly following.

However, IBM is somewhat of an earned authority in its field, but because the people followed without checking up on their earned authority – especially as it was leading the to a new field of endeavor this can illustrate a mindless acceptance that is a tool of the Beast.

A point I can not stress too much is that the Beast is not the Beast because he is evil in the traditional sense, but because of mindlessness. A good thing can be your Beast including the Bible, Jesus, your nation – anything outside yourself that you follow mindlessly.

If you are feeding the homeless because you are simply ordered to by your Beastly leader then you have the mark of the Beast.

Why is this bad?

Because if you will feed the homeless merely because you were told to then you will also put the homeless into furnaces just because you were told to.

The Dark Brothers always start with goodly sounding control by dangling a carrot of good works in front of us and then move us over into acts we would never do “if we were thinking.”

This is what Hitler did with good and decent people in Germany. Time and time again at the war trials, those who did despicable acts merely stated in their defense: “I was just following orders.”

So what could Bill Gates and his employees do that would be a Beastly act? No one gave a good example of this so let us give a possible scenario.

Bill Gates: “This new upstart of a company is giving us trouble so we need to crush them. Jim. Dig up some dirt on them and feed it to the press.”

Jim: Jim does not think of any right or wrong here. He merely answers “Yes Sir!” and obeys.

Bill Gates: “Bob! Find some legal technicalities they have and file some lawsuits.”

Bob: Now Bob had a company once that was driven out of business by lawsuits so he was reluctant to conform, but after a pause where he thought about the needs of his family for the weekly paycheck he sighed and put on a smiley face and said: “I’ll get right on it.”

Bill Gates: Gale! Write a virus and find a way to get it into their software.

Gale: “Couldn’t we get in trouble if we get caught.?”

Bill Gates: “Believe me. We will not get caught.”

Gale: “I don’t know about this. I try and live a good Christian life and this doesn’t seen to be the right thing to do.”

Bill Gates: “Are you with the team or not. Yes, or no?”

Gale: She too thinks about her family. “I suppose I am on the team.”

Bill Gates: Is it yes or no?” Bill demands.

Gale: Yes.

Bill Gates: Ok then. Sally. My sources reveal that the President of the company is having an affair. Do what you have to do to get pictures, tapes, whatever you need to let leverage on the guy.

Sally who desperately needs the job says: “I have to draw the line here my friends. What is it with you people? You are following along like mindless idiots. Now if we want to start this meeting over and proceed with a fair course that is fine, but I am not going along with this plan.

Bill Gates: If you do not go along you are out of here and I’ll see to it that you never work again in this industry. You’ll be lucky to get a job as a waitress.

“So be it,” said Sally. “I am out of here.”

This is of course an imaginary example and we have no way of knowing what Bill Gates does in his private meetings but the question is:

Out of the four people who were expected to follow orders were all three who did submit a part of the Beast? Why? Why was Sally not a part of the Beast.

Can the power of the Beast descend even lower than a large company? Can it exist in a small company of three employees? In a family? In a ball team? With your drinking buddies?

Can you see how the prophecy is fulfilled which says:

“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship (kiss up to) him, whose names are not written in the book of life…: Rev 13:8

Yes my friends, we do not have to wait for a computer chip to be placed in our hands to receive the mark. The mark has been here for thousands of years.

The Seeker’s Guide to Soul Contact, Part 11

Day 103

Identifying the Beast

One cannot obtain full soul contact if he has the mark of the beast, as mentioned in the Book of Revelations.

Identifying exactly what or who the beast is as been a subject of hot debate for many centuries. The key to understanding inspired words is to realize that they often have several levels of interpretation and those who say theirs is the one and only one are usually not correct.

What the seeker wants to look for with a valid interpretation is whether it accurately corresponds to the text. Often, an interpretation seems to fit with a line or two and then be out of sync with the rest.

I’m going to give you an interpretation that is in harmony with the text. Even if there were no such thing as the Book of Revelation the meaning behind this interpretation would be extremely useful to seekers.

I will give some of the basics here. For an in depth interpretation see my book, The Unveiling.

The Apostle John saw a beast with terrible power and authority rise up out of the sea

Of him it was written:

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Rev 13:7-8

The first key is to understand the meaning of the sea. We are told in Revelations itself that it stands for “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Rev 17:15

So, this beast will rise up out of all the peoples of the world and make war with the saints, in other words, those who have soul contact. All those who are not enrolled in the book of life though obtaining soul contact shall actually worship the beast.

This scripture about the beast is very widely known and many are expecting it to be fulfilled by some powerful world leader worse than Hitler who will rule the whole world for a time. Yes, there is always a danger of another Hitler showing up, but students are missing something big here. The beast, or antichrist is not something that is coming in the future, but is already here and has dominated on the earth for thousands of years. This is made clear by John himself:

“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” I John 4:3

The antichrist, or the beast was already in the world 2000 years ago and is still here with us.

This brings us to an interesting point worthy of contemplation. What is this beast that has been with us all along that is worshipped y the whole world and attacks those with soul contact, who can see the truth behind the illusions of the world? Obviously, it is not one man since it has been among us for many centuries.

Think about what this could be for this is something the seeker must understand if he is to obtain consistent soul contact. We will continue this discussion in the next lesson.

Affirmation: “I will free myself from the power of the beast.”


Day 104

Great Power and Authority

John gives a hint to the mystery of the beast when he tells us that “the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Rev 13:2

The beast has great authority, power and position. The key word here is authority. A certain amount of authority in this world is a good thing and insures stability in society, but there are two types of authority. The first is called earned authority and the second unearned. An earned authority is one who can be trusted because he has proven ability. The unearned authority is one who exercises power over others, but has no proof that he earned his position or that his words can be trusted. Notice the scripture says that the beast was given power and authority. He was appointed, instead of earning his place.

The worst misuse by unearned authorities is when they take the place of the greatest authority of all – God. This beast will be so successful at falsely representing the authority of God that he will be worshipped by all the world except the few with soul contact.

Normally worship applies to God and when people worship they think they re worshipping God, but the prophecy tells us that this will not be the case. Instead of worshipping God all but a few will worship the beast who is a substitute for God.

How could such a thing be happening now one may wonder?

Consider this. Where do people get their modes of worship and beliefs? Do they really get them from God, or someone else?

Let us take a typical believer. Where does he get his beliefs and code of conduct?

He may say he gets them from the Bible.

But there are hundreds of different churches with different interpretations. How did he conclude what the Bible really means?

He was told the meaning, not by God, but by authorities in his church. The church leaders telling him which interpretation of the scriptures is correct represents authority from without whereas the true God along with divine authority resides within us all

Leaning on a voice without to be told what to think and how to act is worshiping the beast. The beast is represented by the many unearned authorities in the world who are human substitutes for God. The beast is the god without whereas the true voice comes from the God who speaks from within through soul contact.

Even the various scriptures of the world are instruments used by the beast for a book has its existence in the outward world whereas God resides within. If a person reads any book and takes it literally as the voice of God he is worshipping the beast.

Does this mean the scriptures are evil? No, of course not. But the true seeker will not make the same mistake that has led to hundreds of false interpretations. He will not go by the black and white letter, but run the words by the inner Spirit so the true God can verify true principles behind the words.

Unfortunately, many think they do this, but if you check out their beliefs you will generally find they agree with his church authorities. This tells us that they most probably received their beliefs from substitutes for God without, not the God who speaks from within.

Earlier we discussed the problem of guilt. Guilt is caused by going against the will of an outer authority who is a substitute for God. The true God within is a God of love and does not plague you with guilt, but will offer loving correction instead.

We have discussed the beast working through religion, but the scripture tells us that all he world will worship him. That would include those who are not religious. Your assignment today is to contemplate where one can find the unearned authority of the beast outside of religious authorities.

Affirmation: I will test the outer voices to see if they are in harmony with the inner voice that speaks through my soul.”


Day 105

The Extensive Authority of the Beast

In the last lesson we identified the beast as being those with unearned authority who are false substitutes for the voice of God. The beast represents the outer voices that attempt to control us with powerful authority whereas the true God speaks to us within the innermost core of our being.

When understanding this it becomes obvious that this false authority permeates the churches of all religions, some more than others.

It is interesting that the scripture tells us that all except those who are in the book of life will worship there beast. That would include those who are not religious, even the atheists. But do the non-religious worship anything?

The word “worship” concerning the beast here comes from the Greek PROSKUNEO. Literally translated into today’s language it means “to kiss ass”. In more sensitive language it would mean to “fawn over someone” that you see as your boss or master. Do you know anyone who “worships” in today’s world, that is, worships someone other than God? I think all will agree that we live in a world where almost everyone is sucking up to someone else. This worshipping the Beast today is probably even more prevalent than it was in ancient Rome.

The statement “Who is able to make war with him” is like the statement “you can’t fight City Hall”. There is a similarity, but there are many City Halls.

Two of the “City Halls” in the United States are the Democrat and Republican parties themselves. Often times we elect someone who seems to be very sincere about doing a good job and voting his conscience. Then, after the guy spends a little time in Washington he seems to change and his vote becomes very predictable, usually along party lines. Why? Because fighting his party leadership is like fighting City Hall. The party leader says, “This is an important issue for the party, so if you’re a team player you’ll vote with us.” The Congressman soon learns that if he doesn’t play ball, many problems will develop and leadership opportunities just dry up. In addition, he will be shunned by other faithful party members and will not be invited to parties or special meetings. Then there are other City Halls related to politics such as pressure groups, polls, the press.

The fact that the Beast is fawned over tells us that this is not necessarily a Nero type of character that forces people to acknowledge him but is something that almost all give their minds and hearts to voluntarily. In other words, people love the Beast, respect him, kiss up to him and are happy to replace the inner voice with the voice without.

Why would most worship the beast? We humans are lazy and tend to take the path of least resistance. Outer answers are easy to find and they are in black and white. Once accepted no more thinking is required.

The Inner Spirit works with our free will and it takes effort and contemplation to connect with it and come up with an answer. And the answer is never the final answer but is always something to help the seeker on the path of true knowledge that will take him to his next step. Another problem is an answer from the inner Spirit is seen as threatening to the Beast and his agents so the person who is guided by the inner rather than the outer God will often meet with great opposition.

We have shown that the beast is in politics and religion. In the next few lessons we will reveal his presence in other areas.

The next category will be medicine. Contemplate on how outer voices control medicine with an almost godlike authority and who they are that escapes the beast in this area of life.

Affirmation: “The voice of God within delivers me from the beast.”


Day 106

The Omnipresent Beast

Most believers in the Revelation of John are waiting for a world dictator to arrive who will be worse than Hitler. They do not realize that this would not fulfill the prophecy which tells us that all but a few will worship him. The Greek word for worship implies a voluntary act of reverence, support and fawning over someone or something. Many people under any ruthless dictator of history are not worshipful toward him. The inner circle who benefits from the power are always supportive, but among the masses many merely pretend to be supportive, but in their hearts loath the guy.

The real beast is supported worshipfully by all except those who have a measure of soul contact. The real beast has more universal worship than any dictator past, present or future.

This is because the real beast is not a man, but an authoritative force than manifests through humanity as a whole and forces compliance that all but a few accept.

The beast has many tentacles that reach into every aspect of life. If he cannot control an individual through religion he will seek to do it through politics. If that doesn’t work he will try healthcare. If that fails he may try business, science, the educational system or maybe a benevolent organization to which one belongs. The beast has its control devices attached to the average individual through several different interests.

Another category besides religion and politics where the beast uses unearned and unjust controlling authority is healthcare.

I received my first taste of the beast in this category when I was 13 years old. In 1958 at the beginning of the space age I was one of those kids that made his own rockets. One exploded prematurely and put me in the hospital for a total of three months with six surgeries altogether. My first stay in the hospital lasted for a month and I soon found out that at bedtime they gave every single patient a sleeping pill whether they needed one or not. During my stay I made friends with numerous other patients and found that all of them took the pills. I took them too. After all, it was doctors orders, they are the experts, and they know what is best for us, right?

Even though we all took the pills a part of our minds realized that the policy was not logical as a common joke among us was, “They woke me up to give me a sleeping pill.”

After a month’s stay I was released and I soon discovered that I had difficulty sleeping without the nightly pills. Fortunately, after a couple weeks of not taking them my sleep patterns returned to normal. I then realized that those pills did me more harm than good and decided to never take them again. During my other stays in the hospital I never took them and had no problem with sleep.

This was an early awakening for me to the error of blindly following unjust authority.

When my kids were young we had a family doctor who seemed like an intelligent sincere fellow and dabbled a little in natural medicine but was no fanatic by any means, but overall he was pretty much establishment. Even so, other doctors sensed he was not completely one of them.

One day he criticized another doctor’s diagnosis. This other doctor happened to have a lot of authority in the hospital and trumped up a charge against our doctor and had him barred from the hospital. Since this was the only hospital in town, this was a great inconvenience for him and he was barely able to make a living. Nevertheless, we continued to go to him because he was the best doctor in town.

Our doctor received a taste of the authority of the beast, but many have endured much more.

The assignment today is to think about areas of medicine and healthcare where the beast exercises unjust authority and how he makes war against those who oppose him.

Affirmation: “I see through attempts of unjust control.”


Day 107

Prescriptions from the Beast

The last assignment is to find places in the area of health where the beast asserts unjust authority.

The beast exerts tremendous authority in this department of life, especially with prescription drugs.

When you look at the statistics it becomes obvious that the doctors and authorities pushing these drugs are doing so with unearned, unproven authority.

For instance, 16% of hospital admissions are related to adverse reactions to medicines.

Prescription drugs are the 4th leading cause of death, ahead of pulmonary disease, diabetes and auto accidents.

Almost 1.3 million people went to U.S. emergency rooms due to adverse drug effects in 2014, and about 124,000 died from those events.

There are ten times more deaths per year due to adverse drug reactions to properly prescribed drugs than illegal ones.

A study, published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings, shows that seven out of 10 Americans take at least one prescription drug.

More than half of Americans take two prescription mediations, and 20 percent of Americans are on at least five prescription medications. Over a third of people 55 and older take five or more prescription drugs; 9 percent were taking more than 10.

You would think that people would be alarmed at the dangers of prescription drugs and their use would be going down, but the number of prescriptions filled for American adults and children rose 85 percent between 1997 and 2016.

On top of prescription drugs, non prescription ones also have to be added into the equation for most people take several of these fairly regularly.

So why does society keep increasing their intake of drugs when the data seem to indicate they do more harm than good? There are several reasons:

(1) Follow the money. Big Pharma currently takes in about $450 billion a year in the United States. The big profits only give them incentives to push more pills on us through advertising and the medical system.

(2) Medial doctors are not educated in alternatives to drugs so they work with what they have been taught.

(3) Prescribing a drug is the line of least resistance. Rather than dong some research on an alternatives it is easier to just write a prescription. Besides it often makes the patient feel that something is being done to help him. Orthodox medical doctors have close to zero education in nutrition or alternative medicine or, many of which are much more helpful than prescription drugs.

So, what happens when the average person has a visit with a doctor and is given a prescription?

Unfortunately, he usually accepts it without question. To follow authority without question is to receive the mark of the beast in the forehead. The doctor has the mark of the beast in the right hand as this mark signifies labor for unearned authority or working for such authority without questioning.

Those who have the mark of the beast are like simple animals in consciousness who do what they are told without question – this is a herd type of mentality.

The scripture says that the beast will attack those who do not worship him. The assignment today is to think about how unjust authorities representing the beast attack those who do not submit to it but present alternative health solutions.

Contemplate being one with your soul and look at the situation through the eyes of the Higher Self. Does it support blind acceptance of prescription drugs and does it nudge you into researching alternatives?

Affirmation: “I see and refuse to be led by the blind.”


Day 108

Great Authority

So what happens to those who promote alternatives to prescription drugs?

The beast through the drug industry attacks in every way possible. If anyone uses the word “cure” in relation to anything alternative they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent possible and many have been jailed for merely doing their best to help others with alternatives.

Often when a patient does a little research into natural remedies and runs them by the doctor he will be met with a disapproving shaking of the head. He will be told that foods we eat have little effect on health as long as we eat the basics. He will rarely allow you to substitute a natural cure for one that involves pharmaceuticals, chemo, radiation or surgery. Some will tolerate you experimenting with a few natural things as long as you make following his instructions the first priority. He will then take credit for any healing that occurs.

That said, it is important that the seeker remember that few things can be consistently interpreted in strictly black and white terms. Once in a while a pharmaceutical drug may be temporality helpful, but I would say that in over 90% of the time the patient would be better off just eliminating them or replacing them with some natural treatment.

The reason they permeate society as they do is they are supported by the unearned authority of the beast.

This great authority of the beast does all in its power to restrict natural cures and hurt those who advocate them. They are restricted by law from outright putting heretics to death, as in the old days, but they still create many problems. Here are a few things that those with the mark of the beast do.

(1) Ridicule. This is the most ubiquitous line of attack and it is very effective. If they can make others feel ashamed to be associated with a particular belief or practice then opposition is immediately neutralized.

(2) Group Think. The authority of the beast does an excellent job of convincing the masses that their way is just the way it is done and if you do not follow then there is something wrong with you.

(3) Fear. You are told that rejecting orthodox treatment is very dangerous. Your life may even be at stake if you do not listen to them.

(4) Superiority. The doctors are much more educated than you in healthcare and not listening to them is not smart. It puts you in the tin foil hat category.

They do not realize how lopsided their education is. Whereas they are educated in orthodox medicine most have very limited knowledge of alternatives and have no earned authority to make judgments on it.

They are like the guy who is an expert on rice and knows everything about every variety, but knows nothing about other foods that are needed to supply good nutrition for the whole body.

(5) Regulation. They try and regulate everything possible to hinder alternative practitioners. Legislation has been promoted that would require herbs and vitamins to only be available though medical doctors by prescription.

(6) Threats. Alternative practitioners have many threats hanging over their heads. If they ever use the word “cure” they could face serious jail time. If a patient dies under their care they can be sued or prosecuted in some cases.

The beast thus seeks to normalize the abnormal and dangerous intake of prescription drugs. It not only increases his authority but numbs the minds of many so they are easier to control.

Healthcare is just one area of life the beast seeks control and drugs are just one division of health. Contemplate other areas in health where authorities push their will upon the public.

Affirmation: “I will question without fear of what others think.”


Day 109

The Vaccination Epidemic

Extremely fertile soil for the authoritarian beast lies in its control and manipulation of vaccinations, which occurs on a worldwide basis.

100 years ago kids received vaccinations for one disease – smallpox. That was a very dreaded and deadly disease so this precaution made a lot of sense. Later came the polio vaccination and any risk from this seemed to outweigh the danger poised by that disease.

Today we have gone way overboard and vaccinate our kids for 14 different diseases, some of them quite minor such as measles, mumps and chicken pox. Most of my friends and I caught all of these when I was a kid in the 1950s and they proved to be a mild inconvenience with the bonus of getting off school for a few days.

They will often administer five vaccines to small children, even babies, at a time. President Trump made the comment that the vaccine schedule was “meant for a horse, not for a child.”

And concern over vaccinations crosses party lines. Chief of citizens voicing concerns over vaccines is Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Kennedy is concerned about the link between vaccines and autism and believes there has been insufficient research on the problem.

He says that, “We need to do double-blind placebo testing. Because particularly when it comes to injecting aluminum or mercury into babies, the consequences may be latent. In other words, they may not manifest or diagnosed to age 3 or 4. So the current protocols, which require testing for vaccines of sometimes as little as 48 hours, are not going to disclose the kind of dangers that the public and the regulators ought to know about.”

He also says that the authorities are deceptive about the use of mercury in the vaccines. They have not been taken out of all and flue shots contain “mega doses of it.”

The biggest concern over vaccinations is its possible link to autism, a terrible affliction that is plaguing our children.

Autism is a modern disease, first diagnosed in 1943. From then until he 1980’s cases were fairly rare. Then, after Congress gave drug companies immunity from lawsuits and the expansion of vaccines took off so did cases if autism jumping up over 13 times what it was before 1980. Today, one out of 150 eight year olds has autism.

This dramatic increase did not happen without some cause behind it and many concerned parents fear it is related to vaccines.

Even though polls show that the majority of parents have concerns over vaccines and autism over 90% of them go ahead and have it done to their kids anyway. The pressures from the authoritarian system on parents is becoming increasingly potent. Public schools require vaccinations and exemptions are becoming increasingly difficult to get. The pressure to conform is enormous.

Rebecca Bredow of Michigan found this out in October 2017, for she was jailed for refusing to vaccinate her nine year old son.. This may be just the beginning of additional force as the beast increases in authority in this area. You would never know that a large portion of the public are becoming concerned about the dangers of vaccination if you listen to the Medea. Anyone who questions the authorities in this matter is portrayed as unreasonable a best to anti science and insane at worst.

The authorities under the power of the beast are not as concerned about benefits or dangers of vaccines as thye are their base of power and mandatory vaccines is a potent step in securing that base. Cheerleaders for the beast would rather have authority over others than any other asset.

The largest problem is not so much who is right or wrong, but the loss of freedom of choice.

Assignment: Contemplate other areas concerning health where the beast has great authority.

Affirmation: “I will do my own research and discover the truth,”


Day 110

A Cure Worse than the Disease

The authority of the beast reveals itself quite strongly in the treatment of cancer. When the doctor tells a patient he has cancer it is often seen as a death sentence. The person is usually scared to death and willingly puts his life totally in the hands of the medical authorities.

Those who wish to escape the mark of the beast will not blindly trust these authorities but will do some research of their own.

Doctors that automatically recommend chemo or radiation are often seen as the ultimate authorities to rely on for cancer treatments but consider this.

Back in 2004, an Australian study on the effectiveness of chemo showed the 5 year survival rate was 5%. On top of this, chemo and radiation stimulate the growth of additional cancers. Perhaps the worst thing about chemo and radiation is the decline of the quality of life. The quality of life of a person receiving orthodox treatments is often far inferior to that of one receiving no treatment.

Let us say that you had a projected two years to live. Would you be willing to live two years of consistent torture to gain a couple extra weeks or would you rather go without treatment and live the two yeas in functional condition with less pain and discomfort?

Fortunately an increasing number of cancer victims are researching out of the mainstream and discovering cures that work better than chemo and radiation and do not lower the quality of life.

Suzanne Somers felt ill and was told that cancer riddled most of her body. Instead of accepting orthodox treatment she did some research and discovered she had been breathing in black mold from a house she was renting. After moving out she concentrated on natural cures and completely regained her health. Today, at 71 she still looks great.

Parker Jensen had a terrific run-in with the beast of authority. In 2003 when he was 12 yesars old he was diagnosed with cancer and told he needed chemotherapy. Both he and his parents did not think this was the best course and resisted.

The medical authorities filed against them in juvenile court and a judge ordered the state to take custody of the boy.

Fortunately, the warrant could not served, for the family fled the state to Idaho. Their troubles did not end as the father spent some time in jail for his resistance to the beast. The parents concluded that the doctors gave the wrong diagnoses, concentrated on natural cures and Parker has been healthy ever since. He is now a happily married man of 26.

The stories of those who have rejected the beast and cured their own cancer with alternative treatments are legion. And perhaps the best part is the alternative cures do not cause them to suffer so intensely as do some of the orthodox treatments.

For those who do not have cancer the best course of action is a healthy lifestyle. Drink pure water and eat foods free of chemicals and pesticides.

Cancer is aggravated by suppressed emotions so do not suppress and do not hold grievances. Be honest and open with your emotional communications.

There are many alternative approaches and some work better than others.

A seeker who does get cancer should not rule out all orthodox treatments, but definitely should look at the value of alternatives. If one does lean toward following the doctors orders he should ask this question.

“Would you recommend this treatment to your own child?”

It is interesting that many physicians do not use their own treatments on their own family members.

Seekers can find many alternatives by merely Goggling, “cancer alternative treatments.”

The assignment today is to continue to think of other places in the area of healthcare where the strong authority of the beast surfaces.

Affirmation: “I trust, but verify.”


Day 111

The Semmelweis reflex

Authorities in the health industry have been wrong many times in the past as well as the present. History tells us that when a better way is found that threatens the established authority of the beast that the authorities affected will ridicule and attack the innovator.

This automatic, often mindless attack, characterized by reflex-like rejection of new knowledge because it contradicts entrenched norms, beliefs, or paradigms has a name. It is called the Semmelweis reflex.

Where this name originated is an interesting story.

Ignaz Semmelweis was a Hungarian physician working in Vienna hospitals in 1847 when he became very concerned about the high mortality rate of women giving childbirth in one of the hospitals. He researched what was different with this hospital from others and discovered that many doctors delivering babies had, hours before, been working with corpses doing autopsies. He concluded that they were carrying something invisible on their hands that was infecting the mothers.

This happened before Louis Pasteur confirmed the germ theory so the idea that we may transfer invisible little lives with our hands seemed strange at the time. Even so, Semmelweis’ research indicated that something deadly was being transferred and came up with a simple solution. He instituted a policy in the hospital that physicians should wash their hands before delivering babies.

Amazingly, the mortality rate went down a whopping 90%.

Problem solved, right?

Wrong, his problem was just beginning. After two years of tremendous success his job was terminated and became frustrated with the meager work he could find. Medical authorities ridiculed him for believing that washing hands was necessary because of seeming invisible that was causing infections.

He accused the authorities as being accomplices to murder if they refused to accept washing hands before medical procedures.

He left Vienna and moved to Budapest. The only job he could find was as an unpaid volunteer in an obstetric ward. Again he implemented hand washing and the mortality rate dropped to near zero.

He felt that he had made a simple discovery that could save many lives and tried to convince the medical authorities to to adopt it.

All his efforts did was inflame the beast of authority and they ridiculed him and attacked back. Finally at the age of 47 authorities forced him into a mental asylum where he was beaten by the guards and died of an infection within two weeks.

The beast killed the messenger, but it could not kill the message. Within twenty years after his death the evidence of the benefits of washing hands became so overpowering, especially with the discovery of germs, that even the representatives of the beast had to yield and give in to the truth.

Does this mean that the authority of the beast was defeated? No. Far from it. As society progresses the beast will lose authority in certain departments of life, but when he does he just established a new base of authority in another.

We have already discussed two of the current bases. The first is an increasing authority over vaccinations, pushing so many that obvious dangers are looming. The second is orthodox radiation and chemo treatments for cancer while rejecting with a Semmelweis reflex many promising alternatives.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Heart disease is number one. The assignment today is to contemplate where the beast uses his authority in this area of health and where those who resist the beast are making their efforts.

Affirmation: “I decide, not by reflex, but by reason.”



Day 112

A Good Heart

Since heart disease is the number one cause of death people are very concerned if anything seems out of order. Whenever one goes to a doctor he always checks his heart and will often run tests to check for levels of cholesterol.

Concern about heart health causes many to make frequent trips to the doctor which often results in discovery of other problems with the patient winding up taking three or more prescription drugs, thus yielding more power to unproven authority.

And talk about unproven authority. Since 1953 the medical system has been promoting the idea that cholesterol is bad for your heart and one needs statin drugs to control it. This myth originated from a flawed study in 1953 Dr. Ancel Keys where he kept the data that supported the dangers of high cholesterol and discarded that which did not.

Statistics show that that more than 50 percent of those admitted to hospitals with heart disease have normal cholesterol while many with healthy hearts actually have high cholesterol.

Cholesterol is an essential ingredient for good physical health. As you know, oil and water do not mix, but they must work together in our bodies, so the liver manufactures cholesterol to assist in this process that provides lubrication for the body.

In addition, cholesterol enables the production of hormones, vitamin D, aids in digestion and combats cellular damage, which increases as we age. It is essential to the immune system and brain functioning and helps to relieve stress.

The amount of cholesterol you need will vary with your diet and lifestyle. Some people actually need a fairly high level of it.

Determining an approach for good heart health is a fairly complex problem, but if it can just be reduced to a simple test measuring cholesterol the doctor’s job becomes much more simple. Then, later, when more problems occur expensive surgery or a transplant may be required.

Doctors mainly concentrate on drugs and surgery for heart health and will offer some encouragement to exercise. They warn patients to stay away from saturated fats. In this case, they are mistaken as saturated fats from natural sources are good for your heart. Some sources include, olive and coconut oil, nuts, wild fish, grass-fed meats, seeds, avocados, and eggs, preferably free range.

For years we were warned that eggs were bad for our heart, but opinion is changing on this. A pioneer in promoting eating eggs is Dr, Joel Wallach. He personally eats over a dozen eggs a day, is 77 years old, never goes to a doctor or takes drugs and is in perfect health.

A simple healthy diet and moderate exercise can do much to insure a healthy heart. The number one food to avoid is processed sugar and artificial sweeteners. Avoid standard sodas with vigilance. For sweeteners raw honey is your best bet. Next in line would be maple syrup or molasses.

Avoid processed foods and oils with trans fats. For cooking use either butter, avocado or grape seed oil. For consumption use extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil. The more raw fruits and vegetables you eat the better.

The final advice for good heart health is for the seeker to maintain a “good heart.” One is said to have a good heart if he is friendly, helpful, loving and kind. There is a correlation between having a good heart from a spiritual angle and a good physical heart.

The assignment today is to reflect on the health of your own heart, not only the physical aspect, but the spiritual. Are you following the will of your soul in maintaining a good spiritual heart and outlook on life and relationships? What more need you do?

Affirmation: “My heart radiates with vitality and goodwill.”


Day 113

Let the Patient Heal Himself

The beast above all other things seeks power over the souls of men. Some may add that it seeks money, but when this seems to be the case we will find that the motivation behind the money is power and authority more than the material goods that money will buy.

Some individuals exercising great authority over the souls of men live fairly frugal lives giving the impression they are spiritual. This will sometimes hide the fact that their true motive is in alignment with the beast which seeks authority.

Because money will often enhance power and authority the representatives of the beast usually seek to obtain as much of it as possible, even those claiming to guide followers on the spiritual path.

A great example of misplaced authority in the health field is related to us by Dr. Joel Wallach. He has successfully promoted natural cures through nutrition for many years and has been attacked numerous times by medical authorities. He discovered that most children suffering from muscular dystrophy could be cured with extra selenium and supplements of trace minerals. He told Jerry Lewis about this, who at the time was very successfully heading up the yearly muscular dystrophy marathon.

Jerry was very excited about the possibility and suggested to the medical authorities involved that they look into Wallach’s claims.

Instead of investigating they dismissed Wallach as a quack and when Jerry continued to want to investigate they fired him and threatened to sue him for all he was worth if he said anything that would damage the reputation of the organization.

Therefore, it became a mystery why the organization’s greatest money maker for over 40 years was suddenly dropped until Wallach gave the details. They liked the money he raised, but keeping their power was even more important. They would lose both if all parents had to do was spend a few dollars on a food supplement.

Another disease that medical authorities do not want any simple inexpensive plan to replace them in is Alzheimer’s.

Dr. Dale Bredesen thinks he has done just this. He has created what he calls the Bredesen Protocol which is a combination of nutrition, fasting, exercise and lifestyle changes. If caught in the early stages he says he can reverse Alzheimer’s in nine out of ten patients.

Others claim that just taking daily supplements of virgin coconut oil can reverse the disease.

And why isn’t the authoritative medical establishment rushing to verify these simple inexpensive treatments?

The simple answer is this. If the patient can gain a little knowledge and then treat himself he will no longer need the medical authorities. He will no longer have to worship at their feet and give them large amounts of money.

Medical doctors have their place. If someone has an accident and needs patched up, or needs a corrective surgical procedure then a well trained doctor can be a life saver. Unfortunately their greatest authority is exerted on patients suffering from disease and in treating most of these they have not shown us to have a justified authority.

We could go through many different aeas of health and show how average people who researched health for themselves have freed themselves from the need for medical authorities escept on rare occasions.

The tendency to over medicate has proven dangerous, for drugs only temporarily relieve symptoms, including depression. The one things that every mass shooter I have researched had in common is that they all took mind altering prescription drugs. The recent Las Vegas shooter was no exception. He took a powerful psychotropic drug called diazepam. Is the increase in mass shootings linked to mind alerting drugs? That seems to be the only common denominator for the increase.

Next we will examine where the beast establishes his authority in the educational system. The seeker can contemplate how this may be playing out.

Affirmation: “I will question all outer authority.”


Day 114

The Expanding Beast

The seeker may not suspect that the beast of authority is present in our public schools as well as our institutions of higher learning.

Isn’t educating out kids a good thing with few drawbacks?

Yes, education is good. The beast would prefer total ignorance for the less light and more ignorance there is the greater will be his authority Humanity has moved into mass education contrary to the will of the beast but once humanity takes a step forward the beast of authority assesses the new situation and then determines how he can make the best of it by re-establishing authority through new avenues.

Sometimes a little progress actually offers him greater opportunity for control than the mass ignorance of the past.

For instance, the Nazis put a lot of attention on educating the youth, but instead of creating enlightenment the beast stepped in with his authority to control their minds to force allegiance to a destructive belief system.

So, is the beast having any success exercising his authority in the educational system today?

More than one may think.

The first thing the beast does to maintain his base of power is to control the money. Over 90% of elementary and secondary students attend public schools. It matters not if your child participates in the system you still have to pay taxes to support it. If you send your child to a private school you still have to pay taxes to support the public schools plus the extra money for the private one.

The money spent for each child in the public system is about three times that of a private school.

The latest statistics I have available puts the average cost per year for a student in the public system to be $10,700. Some states are much higher. For instance the cost per student is almost $20,000 in New York.

The average cost for private school attendance in the United States is $3,267 per year.

You would think that with such a potential savings that the stewards of our tax dollars would be demanding some type of voucher system that would allow parents to send more children to private schools. A handful of parents, educators and politicians are advocating for this, but they are in the minority and ridiculed by the powers-that-be.

Are private schools resisted because they are inferior?

Not really. Many politicians who are outwardly strong advocates for public education send their own kids to private schools. Their actions verify what their true thoughts are.

Even though the cost of private schools is lower average people cannot afford them, but many of those who have higher incomes spend the extra money because of their high quality.

The results speak for themselves. 88 percent of senior-year students in private high schools applied to colleges, compared to only 58 percent of seniors in public high schools.

It seems to defy logic that there would be so much resistance to a more economical and efficient system but when you realize the ever present goals of the beast it makes sense. The public schools are a source of great sums of money that flows through the hands of a very authoritarian bureaucracy. Such an authoritative system can control what is fed into the minds of students much better than a private and independent school.

Our kids are not brainwashed like the Nazis yet, but the powers of the beast are pushing us in that direction.

Assignment: Contemplate how the authority of the beast is seeking to exert itself in our education system and control our teachers and children.

Affirmation: “I will look through the eyes of my soul and see the hidden workings of the beast.”

McCall Gathering, 2007, Part 16

This entry is part 16 of 54 in the series McCall Gathering 2007

The Unveiling, Part 11
Mark of the Beast

And the beast, it says, “causes all, both rich and poor, free and bonded, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads.”

The common interpretation today is they are developing this computer chip and we are going to receive an implant of a chip in our right hand and when we go through a scanner we have to pass our hand over the scanner or we will not be able to buy anything. The problem with this interpretation is even if that were true it would not be that terrible of a thing unless it was misused and we can misuse money as it is today – which we must have to buy or sell. That has nothing to do with the power of the beast to bring real terror into the hearts of mankind. Kim Jong Ill, the leader of North Korea, with no computer chip creates terror in the hearts of his people much greater than if someone had a computer chip in their hand.

And do you think that if a dictator took over this country that he would put the chip in the right hand after reading this! Everybody knows the prediction! This would be so obvious that everybody would think, well this guy must be the beast he is going to put a computer chip in our right hands!  Now it also says they will receive the number of his name. Hitler put a number on his Jewish subjects. Did he use a right or left arm to do that with?

Audience: Left arm

JJ: Why do you suppose he picked the left arm? Because everybody would think that Hitler must be the beast. So instead of picking the right arm like the scripture says Hitler read this and thought oh, they will think I am the beast if I put a number on their right hand or arm so I am going to put it on the left arm. So he put it on everybody’s left wrist which was pretty close to the hand actually. He avoided the hand because it says hand so he put it just above the hand.

He avoided the hand and he put it on the left arm instead of the right arm and thought, “well, now nobody can accuse me of being the beast.” He also placed the sign of on the left, rather than the right arm.

Audience: I heard something about the credit card that is related to this, the credit card has a number on it and I hold it in my hand when I swipe it.

JJ: Well you do not hold it in your forehead and it says the right hand or the forehead. The orthodox interpretation is if someone has a hand missing then they will put the computer chip in the forehead. Well that does not make a lot of sense. Imagine going through a scanner using your forehead! It would easier to put it on the foot or the other hand or his elbow or whatever stump he has left but if you put it on the forehead it would be kind of silly really. Plus it would painful to put a computer chip right into your forehead! It is possible that a tyrant could rise up and put some number on us all but what was interesting about Hitler is that he obviously read the scriptures and decided that he did not want to be portrayed as the beast.

Then we have his Nazi symbol, the Swastika – which arm did he put that on?

Audience: The Left

JJ: Left; he thought he was escaping the mark of the beast by having everybody put the Nazi symbol on the left arm and I believe he did that because he did not want to be associated with the beast but unfortunately for him he still screwed up because the Nazi symbol on the left arm symbolized the left hand path. So unknowingly in trying to avoid looking like the beast in history he really turned into the beast because the Nazi symbol on the left arm was symbolizing the left hand path. So he did not get out of the symbolism after all.

Audience: Didn’t the swastika spin to the left instead of the right.

JJ: It does point right or clockwise and there are two types of swastikas, one used by the Brotherhood of Light that goes counter clockwise and means the path of greatest resistance and the Nazis which used the path of least resistance, which is the path of materialism and that is what their swastika stood for. Now unfortunately the Brotherhood of Light cannot use the swastika anymore because Hitler just ruined it. So if we reverse the direction and use the swastika everybody would think we some kind of Nazis. Chuckling. They would not recognize that it is moving in a different direction so the swastika is pretty much out of commission for probably thousands of years.

The true mark on the right hand symbolizes labor. The forehead symbolizes thought. People already have the mark on their right hand and their forehead and in the Book of First John written 2000 years ago it says, “The anti-Christ is even now already in the world.” The beast was already there clear back in the days of John The Revelator and it has been there even before him. In other words, there have always been people who are the authorities that have ruled the world.

The seven kingdoms of the world have had the mark placed the mark in the right hand or the forehead of their subjects. They had to think the way they were told to think and labor for the authority they were told to work for or they would suffer and die at their hands..

I was just reading about back in the days of Martin Luther, (1483-1546 initiated Protestant Reformation, “The 95 Theses began in 1517) Martin Luther and his followers were persecuted. People that subscribed to his thinking were burned at the stake just for saying that they liked Martin Luther.  They roasted them, not quickly but very slow. They slow roasted them and then lifted them up off the coals before they died and let them recuperate a little bit and then lowered them back into the burning fire and roast them some more. That is how cruel they were.

They disemboweled others along with burning people at the stake just for voicing an opinion. It has been this way for thousands of years. We do not realize how lucky we are to be able to sit here in this room and talk. If we were to be transported back a couple hundred years ago we would all be burned at the stake, just for having this meeting. Now if we go where the beast has full power like North Korea, you have to think the way you are told to think and if you do not you go into re-education camp. You have to work the way you are told to work or you will suffer and be killed at the hands of the beastly authority in charge.

Symptoms of the Mark

Dec 28, 1998

Symptoms of the Mark

Let me start by quoting several questions we have been pondering:

“The first verses of Revelations Chapter 14, that I quoted in my previous post tells us that the 144,000 have the Father’s name in their foreheads. How is this accomplished? How is this different than having the name or number of the Beast in the forehead?

If we switch over to having the Father’s name in our foreheads then where do we look for that name and what is the name? What is the main sign that we have the name?”

Basically those who have the name of the Beast are those who look upon some name outside of themselves for authority. They may find themselves saying something like this:

“My guru Joe Blow says flying saucers are landing next month so I believe it.”

“My minister told me I shouldn’t marry Ann so I guess I won’t.”

“Dr. Laura says no, so I guess I shouldn’t do it.”

“The Priest, (Pope, Prophet etc.) says that Jesus is the Lord of the Universe so he must be.”

“The Bible (even this good book can represent an outside authority) says I can handle snakes and not get hurt so let me touch that rattler.”

He who has escaped the mark of the Beast may find himself saying other words as:

“I don’t care if you guys do get angry at me. I don’t think the group is right and I’m voting against this.”

“Why are you being so sensitive? All I did is tell you what I perceive to be true.”

“You may be right. I may lose my wife, my kids, my fortune and my good name, but this is something I have to do.”

“I know that’s what everybody thinks, but that’s because they are told what to think. Here’s what I think the real answer is. If you will just still yourself a moment and listen you will receive it too.”

See if you can come up with additional statements made by those who have the mark and those who have escaped it.

Dec 15, 1998


If I were a representative of the Beast I would not be teaching you here, but would set myself up as the ultimate authority and would discourage your learning and thought while at the same time proclaim I am for free thought, learning and an open mind.

I see from your posts today that some of you have been subject to beastly leaders in the past. The sign of such a group is this. When you are in the group you just get a sense that you need to only give the answers that the leader wants to hear. If you give otherwise you will be “frowned” upon.

In the old days you were imprisoned or killed for questioning. Fortunately the Constitution that wounded the Beast plus the slow progress we have made in the rule of law gives us some protection in this age.

Even though standard numerology is not the key we are looking for I was looking forward to someone going into it. It definitely gives an additional depth and view of the various levels of interpretation available.

Glad to hear that some of you are looking into Strong’s Concordance. If you intelligently use this you can become a better translator than the scholars. Why? Because people on this forum have more common sense than most scholars.

Regular bookstores would have to special order this but almost all Christian bookstores have it. If you visit one they may tell you that Young’s or another one is just as good, but they are not. Strong’s has been the standard for many years. You can just imagine the work it took to create with no computer.

Then too you can order it from Amazon.

I have a computer program that’s supposed to have Strong’s on it, but they have edited it so much of the good stuff is taken out.

Another tool you may want if you desire to do research in the original language is Concordant New Testament. They also have about half of the Old Testament translated. Unlike regular Bibles, that are translated for easy reading, this version is painstakingly literally translated without regard to how it reads. Consequently, there is very little bias in it.

I’m surprised the publishers have not turned into New Agers.

You can order HERE

The text of the Concordant New Testament can be found here:

It is an interesting fact that a goal of the Brotherhood, in addition to promoting that which is good, is to take “evil” to a higher level. In the old days it was only mildly “evil” to kill a slave. Now here in Idaho if you kill as Jack Rabbit you are more “evil” than was the guy who killed his slave in the past. In other words, evil has been taken to a higher level.

In the free world (which is now the totality of the second beast) the evil beast has been taken to a higher level. When we offend the Beast now we just lose our job or get thrown out of something whereas in the image of the Beast (the non free world) they are still literally killed.

Dave asks: Are we even in this group subject to the Beast? Probably to some extent we all are. The reason we have spent so much time on the Beast is to make us aware of that which holds us back from the full truth. “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

I take some risk in teaching you the truth about the Beast. Some may go the other extreme and feel they need to challenge me on everything.

One who has freed himself from the authority of the Beast however will test all teachers including myself with the God within, but once a teacher’s words have passed that test a challenging attitude becomes unnecessary. Nevertheless, never get lazy – always check all things through the soul and then question when necessary.

One of the problems with students is that when they go out of alignment with the soul they often think their teacher has gone astray while they believe they have now passed beyond their teacher. Jesus had this problem with the disciples of old to some extent and had to set them straight several times by reminding them to look within to discover the truth anew. All but Judas were able to do this. He refused to look within and his ego made him soar in his mind even higher than his Lord.

Now what could 666 possibly have to do with being under the authority of the Beast? You must also read the scripture very carefully. Notice in verse 17 that those who have the mark bear “the number of his name?”

Now the Christian world is waiting for some great dictator to arise with the number 666 tattooed on his head or something like that, but here we are told that the billions among the masses bear the number themselves? How could they do that?

Hint: What chakra does the Beast use to maintain his control?


The beast does not work through the Heart Center for he cannot comprehend spiritual love.

Solar Hint

Glenys and Kyle were on the right track by thinking Solar Plexus.

What could this have to do with the number 6 or 666?

Hint: The age of Pisces is also involved.

What Is The Mark of The Beast?

This entry is part 29 of 57 in the series Mysteries

Question Thirty

What Is The Mark of The Beast?

The mark of the beast has also been a subject of much discussion and speculation over the millennia.  Here is the scripture behind it all:

“And he (the beast) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And 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.” Rev 13:16-17

First, let us itemize some of the popular interpretations of the mark.

(1) The Barcode. From the beginning of its use in grocery stores this has been accused of being the mark of the beast.  Believers say that the number 666 is embedded in every barcode. Others claim this is a misreading but this has not deterred believers from warning us that we will soon be required to receive a barcode on our right hands or foreheads.

(2) A Computer Chip.  The idea here is that a beastly dictator will cause us to receive a computer chip implanted in the right hand or forehead and unless this is scanned in at the point of purchase no one can buy or sell anything.

(3) A tattoo of some kind, maybe a Social Security number.

(4) Recognizing Sunday as the Sabbath instead of Saturday.

These are perhaps the most popular ideas heading up an almost endless list of guesses.

But according to the scripture all of these guesses are not correct.


Again, it is written, “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark…”

The word “causeth” comes from the Greek POIEO which is written in the present tense. Also the word “all” comes from PAS which can be translated as “all” or it can refer to a selection of people. If we translate the verse mare accurately it reads, “And he is causing certain people, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark…”

In other words, when the scripture was written 2000 years ago the beast was then, at that time, causing people to receive the mark.

We know that “all” was not the correct translation because all did not receive the mark. 144,000 redeemed, mentioned in Rev 14:1 received the Father’s name in their foreheads rather than the mark. Then in Rev 20:4 we are told of those “which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands.”

Taking this into consideration we must conclude that both the beast and the mark were alive and well 2000 years ago, before computer chips, before the barcode, before Social Security and before the day of rest was changed to Sunday.

So, what then is the mark which the masses have been receiving all through history?

To understand the mark we must understand the symbolic meaning behind the forehead and the right hand.  It should be obvious that this is not likely to literally happen.  For instance, the closest thing we have seen to the predicted antichrist was Hitler and he did place a mark on the arms of the Jews, but instead of choosing the right hand he placed the mark on their left arm.  Why? He probably knew of the prophecy and didn’t want to be identified with the antichrist. He therefore chose the left arm rather than the right.

Any future bad guy who wants to mark his people is also likely to not place a mark on the forehead or right arm to avoid being accused of being in cahoots with the beast.

On the other hand, when we look at the symbolic meaning everything makes sense and we can see that the mark has been here with us all along.

The forehead symbolizes thought and the right hand a person’s labor. He who receives the mark of the beast in his forehead will think as the beast tells him to think.  He will not question an outward authority that he has given greater allegiance to than the inner voice of the Spirit.

He who receives the mark on the right hand will do what he is told to do by the beast.  He will obey without question. He will obey his prophet, priest or king without question. He will follow doctor’s orders without question. He will submit to political leaders without question and believe his teachers without question.

Many there are who see themselves as independent thinkers and doers who are not independent at all but are merely like a beast herded about in the direction some leader is pushing them.  Many realize that if they do give authorities a problem that they will lose their job or source of income and may not be able to buy or sell because their source of income will be gone.

Fortunately, there are a small number of people who do not believe something just because an authoritative person demands it.  A handful does escape the mark and will listen to the inner voice of the Spirit above the outer voice of established authorities.

A clue as to whether one has the mark of the beast lies in this question.

If you won a lottery and the authority who you most admired asks you for some of the money, would you give it without question, or checking with your inner self, or even checking into how the money is to be spent?  If you were to give the money just because you trust your leader and not check with your inner core then you are in danger of having the mark of the beast and being led about like a beast is led by his master, never questioning but just going in the direction of the herd.

Zion, Part 6

This entry is part 46 of 49 in the series JJ Lectures

Part 6

JJ: The pure in heart are basically those hearts who are uncorrupted by outside influences; in other words, “except ye become as a little child than ye shall not enter into the kingdom of God.” And why is that? Because the child has an uncorrupted heart and a child’s heart is not corrupted by anything until somebody arrives and becomes his outside god. So what we have to do is become like a child to that extent.

People take this the wrong way and think that we should be kind of uneducated and ignorant that we should become a child in that way. There is nothing wrong with becoming educated and learning. To be like a child in the right way is to have that attitude that all things are possible and that everything that you are saying may or may not be true, to be receptive to whatever is taught.

If I were to give this same lecture in the local church the reception would be entirely different and many people would get up and walk away when I was ten minutes into a presentation like this because their heart is not receptive to all possibilities. They are only receptive to what has been established by an outward authority. They are not looking toward the inner authority for the outward authority is so difficult to master. It must be overcome to build Zion because we cannot gather the pure in heart unless there are pure in heart available.

You can become pure in heart by overcoming the mark of the beast and what is the mark of the beast? The mark of the beast is not what you have been told in all the religious literature. The mark of the beast is not an actual physical mark that is put on your right hand. Did you know that Hitler put a mark on the left hand of all the Jews? Why do you suppose he did that? Because a lot of people thought that he was the beast and so he said, “Well I will fool them and put a mark on the left hand.”

So he put a mark on all the Jews’ left hand and he put a Nazi Swastika on the left arm of his followers so the Nazi sign would not be on the right hand or arm and no one would associate him with using the mark of the beast. I found this to be quite interesting because he was the epitome of the beast and history illustrates that he tried to get out of being the beast by creating an illusion. But the funny thing is he was escaping something that was not really the mark of the beast. The mark of the beast is not a little mark on your right hand or your forehead. In Revelation chapter 14 it talks about people who escape the mark of the beast which are the 144,000 that follow the Christ wherever He goeth and these people had a mark in their forehead that was different from the mark of the beast in the forehead. Does anyone remember what that mark in the forehead of those who followed the Christ?

The name of GOD in their forehead was the mark of those who escaped the mark of the beast. What does that mean? Why would the name of GOD in your forehead allow you to escape the mark of the beast?

When you understand what the mark of the beast is the scriptures make perfect sense. I have written a treatise on this and you can look it up online. I will just cover the basics here and you can read more online. The right hand symbolizes labor and the forehead symbolizes thought. Now part of the reason he is called the beast is because those who follow him are herded like animals. An animal does not reason and it is herded and it has to go where directed and it has no choice in the matter. It just accepts the master, the Sheppard the herder or who ever it is that is controlling and he has to go where he is told and produce what he is told to produce and has no choice in the matter.

Those who have the mark of the beast on the right hand, which symbolizes labor, are those who work for some authority because they are told to do it. They do not think about disobeying and they work because they are told. Now this happens in religion, government, politics, medicine, and Unions. This blind following appears in organizations all over the world. In other words if somebody tells you that you must do a certain type of labor, you do the labor right or wrong.

This is what the beastly follower must do to be approved by God, by the government, to be approved by the American Medical Association, to be approved by legal organizations, this is what you must do for your labor and the authority that tells them to do it is what I call an unproven, unearned authority, an unjust authority.

There are two types of authorities. To illustrate, let’s pick an authority teaching Spanish. When an authority speaks Spanish or a teacher is going to teach Spanish, they say I am an authority and I am going to teach you Spanish. Now the wise student will test the teacher and listen to him speak some Spanish to prove that he is good at it. So the teacher brings a Spanish book and speaks in Spanish to the student who realizes he can speak Spanish really good, no accent or anything.

Okay so the teacher has proven that he can do it. Now another Spanish teacher cannot really speak it very good and the student says prove to me you can speak Spanish and the teacher says how dare you challenge me, I have credentials and I can speak Spanish as well as anyone and I do not need to prove it. You just sit there and obey and I will teach the class.

This is an unearned authority, he has not proven he can speak Spanish and he has not proven he can teach it. The first is a just authority and the second is an unjust authority. One is an earned authority and the other is an unearned authority. In the system of the beast one does not have to earn his authority, he is just granted it. He is granted it and because he is in a system where the authority is recognized and we are supposed to obey without question. How many times has just a regular member of the church, for instance, studied the scriptures and he thinks, I wonder what the prophet thinks of this?

Or he wonders if the bishop realizes this or what the stake president thinks. Maybe a student reads something in a school textbook and wants the physics teacher to approve the theory of relativity? It is quite possible that they do not understand it as well as you do and that you are a better authority than they are.

If a leaders are unearned authorities and you feel an obligation to follow them then you have the mark of the beast on the right hand. So what is the mark of the beast on the forehead? The forehead symbolizes thinking.

This reminds me of a friend of mine. Curtis and I were talking to him some years ago and we asked him what he thought about a certain thing out of the scriptures and he says I do not know what I think and I will go and talk to my bishop and find out what I think. We thought this funny, but the sad thing about this is that it is true and many people will say I do not know what I think and I will talk to the authorities and find out what I am supposed to think about that. Now if you have this attitude then you have the mark of the beast in the forehead. If you are a member of the Democrat or Republican Party and you say well I will just go ahead with this because my party believes it. If you are not really thinking it out for yourself but just going ahead because your party believes it or because somebody else tells you or go along with it because everybody else is going along with it then you have the mark of the beast in the forehead.

If you come across some herbs or something that may help somebody with their health issues and some association or the American Medical Association or what ever association they belong to whether it be your doctor, local hospital, or some group tells you, no you cannot use these then the person has the mark of the beast in his forehead and right hand. He cannot think about following the highest be knows because he is told that he cannot maintain his status if he recommends these oddball healing methods. An unjust authority controls him and he has the mark of the beast in the forehead and the right hand.

In order to become pure in heart, one must escape the mark of the beast. His only infallible authority is his soul and it is found in the doorway to the heart and also connected to the mind. As the revelation says in the Doctrine & Covenants, “Behold I will reveal to you in your heart and in your mind.” The heart is the doorway to the soul that must be opened leading to the higher mind to all to all kinds of revelations that you can receive without the static from the beast that is out there.

The Beast

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual & Metaphysical Quotes

From The Discourses Of JJ Dewey

1  Just as Christ came the first time and only 120 people out of the whole world realized it so has in this age the beast, the mark and the number also arrived and still has people looking for it.

2  When asked what he thought on a point of doctrine he replied: “I don’t know. I’ll check with my minister and find out what I think about it.” This is the exact procedure The Beast wants you to follow.

3  The dispelling of the illusion of the Dragon will proceed slowly at first on an individual basis, but the time will come when the Kundalini of the whole planet will be raised and the beast will be destroyed as if by fire.

4  He who still has the mark of the beast will either be enhancing someone else’s ego or his own, whereas he who follows the soul will always feel humbled by it.

5  If the antichrist or beast was already in the world 2000 years ago then why are the religious still waiting for him to surface?  Answer: They are deceived by the beast itself. They have followed authorities who have mislead then instead of looking at the source.

6  The authorities of the beast today want everything from us and give us nothing real in return.

7  The war is between those who gladly receive the mark of the beast through control by authority, and those who seek to escape the mark.

8  If a person accepts a teaching just because it comes from one proclaimed as an authority, then he has received the mark of the beast in his forehead and becomes a follower, a beast trailing after his master.

9  The beast is the mindless following of anything – good or bad in design. Even mindlessly following the words of Jesus in the Bible carries the mark of the beast.

10  The beast is not caused by anything “out there” but is created by the focus of the minds of the people.

11  Those who have escaped the mark of the beast of unjust authority have a responsibility to those who are yet in bondage.

12  The marriage vows as they are used today are the creation of the Beast and an instrument in the hands of the Dark Brothers to keep a barrier between human beings and their souls.

13  Over 90 percent of humanity are controlled in some degree through emotional oneness and this is the mark of the beast.

14  The Beast is very difficult to detect when it influences our own lives.

15  If you do not know for sure and refuse to accept the word of an authority just because the authority says a thing is true and admit that you are open to all possibilities then you may be free from the Beast–IN THIS AREA.

16  You are also free from the Beast when you find the real truth whatever that is.

17  Ironically, those who are under the influence of a similar thoughtform of the Beast will also sense a oneness and a kindred spirit, but it will be a oneness in direction. Those who have soul contact will experience a deeper oneness that goes in all directions. This must be experienced to be able to understand and differentiate.

18  The Beast is still alive and well in our day and indeed it represents an energy of authority which attempts to keep humanity from progressing to the plane of the mind which rules Aquarius – being an air sign.

19  The Beast itself is a giant world thoughtform that is a vehicle for the dragon to establish his authority.

20  In this current age the greatest most persistent attacks by the Beast comes in the area of freedom. The illusion will be that we need to give up more and more of our freedoms for safety.

21  Ground zero for the Beast is the principle of freedom and any expansion of freedom is always fought by those with the mark of the beast through deception and ridicule.

22  Observe how the line of authority is administered and you can then run down the workings of the beast.

23  Using a quote from an earned or established authority to prove a point has nothing to do with the Beast.

24  The idea that contemplating the meaning of the Beast will give it more power I see as pure illusion in most cases. From my observation the opposite is true. Those who do not give such things a second thought are the ones who would be the first to lie down and roll over and even die for the beast.

25  One can escape the mark of the beast no matter how corrupt things are “out there.”

26  The Beast is much bigger and more pervasive than any corporation or organization and affects every business and every organization and every person on the earth.

27  The Beast is not the Beast because he is evil, but because of mindlessness. A good thing can be your Beast including the Bible, Jesus, your nation – anything outside yourself that you follow mindlessly.

28  A mindless or emotional decision to submit indicates the mark of the Beast, but a rational decision to submit does not.

29  Not all submission to authority is negative. A positive submission for the sake of true learning elevates us above the Beast.

30  Control of the individual through the feeding and control of the ego is perhaps the greatest tool that the Beast has to work with.

31  Any time that silence allows the seed of suppression to grow, fertile soil is being created for the growth of the power of the beast.

32  If you feel an emotion that needs to surface and your mind agrees with this, but you suppress because of anger or fear, then the Beast has a place to obtain a foothold.

33  A person descends to carrying the Mark of the Beast when he forfeits his destiny and is ruled by emotion or ego rather than mind or soul.

34  If a person thinks he should speak up, but feels that he should not and goes with emotion rather than mind he is forfeiting the Mark of Humanity and being ruled by the Mark of the Beast, or animal nature.

35  If a person speaks up in class because he has thought things through and his thoughts will benefit the whole then he is amplifying his human nature. But if he seeks to defeat his teacher as a lion devours his enemies then he again bears the Mark of the Beast.

36  So what is the name of the Beast? This answer will offend many people new age and old age, but the name of the Beast is I AM.

37  Escaping the Mark of the Beast is not merely a matter of memorizing a black and white formula, but a matter of using the mind to discern the situation and make your own decision independent of unjust authority.

38  The beast is here now and has great authority. It may be deceptive and subtle, but it is great and all encompassing nevertheless.

39  While it is always a possibility that the Beast of authority could implant a literal mark, the true mark is the unseen control of the mind. The true mark is invisible and can only be seen with the inner vision and understanding.

40  The beast is a thoughtform under the control of “the dragon” (the Dark Brothers). This thoughtform covers the entire planet. This is why Satan (the adversary of light) is called “the god of this world” in the scriptures.

41  We receive the illusion of the mark of the beast when we accept any name for God or final authority that is outside of ourselves.

42  The beast is the static I am.

43  Once a thoughtform or system that represents the Beast becomes the ideal it also becomes an unearned authority and has power to control all actions on the physical plane.

44  This understanding of the Beast and his number is perhaps the most important thing for seekers of truth and wisdom to comprehend.

45  The Beast wants you to do more than obey. It wants you to think as you are told to think in the process.

46  The Beast is already here and has been for many thousands of years.

47  Ignorance, and also fear, gives power to the Beast by the unthinking masses, but those who are not ignorant and enlightened will be the ones to suffer from it.

48  To be a victim of the Beast one must unquestionably follow an authority who takes the place of the inner authority of the God within.

49  The one authority we must not challenge is the Spirit within.

50  Those who worship the outward authorities of the Beast will hate the inner authority of the message from the inner Christ.

51  When the dragon gives the beast authority he automatically gives power and a seat (or some type of position from which to command).

52  Actually, the beast will often use the truth to increase his authority.

53  We have all been under the authority of the Beast at one time or another – either in this life or in past lives, and have accumulated much negative karma because of it.

54  The authority of the Beast crucified Jesus and after the creation of the Christian Church the power and authority of the Beast increased, not decreased.

55  This doctrine of the Beast and the way to overcome him may be the most important thing you will learn in this life.

56  If one hears a story purported to come from a Master, or even Christ or the mouth of God and automatically gives it authority without first examining it under the light of your own soul then some of the residual Beast still has control.

57  Among other things, the beast represents the tendency of humanity to revert back to the authority of a mindless God outside of us, rather than the God who speaks from within.

58  One is not rebelling against the Beast by merely speaking up against an authority he does not honor.
