Exodus (Shemoth) 13:9, 16
9 It shall be as a sign to you on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that YHWH’s law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand YHWH has brought you out of Egypt. 10 You shall therefore keep this ordinance at its appointed time from year to year.
16 It shall be as a sign on your hand and as frontlets between your eyes, for by strength of hand YHWH brought us out of Egypt.”
Deuteronomy (Debarim) 6:6-8
6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
Deuteronomy (Debarim) 11:13,18
13 ‘And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today, to love YHWH your Elohim and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul,14 then I will give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil.
18 “Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
4 and YHWH said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”
5 To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity. 6 Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the temple.
1 Peter 4:17
17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of YHWH; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of YHWH?
It is a violation of the ten commandments. Not a microchip.
9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of YHWH, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of YHWH and the faith of Yahushua.
Those who keep the commandments do not receive the mark of the beast. Those who do receive the mark of the beast do not keep the commandments.
How many saints are there however?
Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.
