This is a graphic I created to give a visual representation of what exists in the spiritual realm for the child of God who has been marked and sealed by the Holy Spirit. One does not need an actual certificate like this one, but you can replace “Your Name” with your actual name and print this out, and put it somewhere to remind you of this spiritual truth if indeed you are marked with this seal.

During these dark and troubled times, the topic of “the mark of the beast” as mentioned in the Bible is getting a lot of press, especially in relation to the bioweapon COVID-19 shots, and transhumanism.
However, I have yet to see anyone address the mark and seal of God, also mentioned in the Bible, and so this article will address this, and hopefully dispel some myths and provide some reassurance and comfort to those who are needlessly fearing the “mark of the beast” and becoming a “transhuman.”
What is the Mark and Seal of God?
I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Greek many years ago and studied Koine Greek (the common language of the people during the days of Jesus Christ and his disciples) for two years.
It was well-known among us Greek students that one of the most eloquently written passages in the Greek New Testament of the Bible was a passage written by Paul in the first chapter of the letter written to the Ephesians. It spans 12 verses, but it is one continuous thought (sentence), and it is a literary masterpiece in ancient literature.
One commentator describes it like this:
The sentence begun by “Blessed (be)” rolls on like a snowball tumbling down a hill, picking up volume as it descends. Its 202 words, and the many modifiers which they form, arranged like shingles on a roof or like steps on a stairway, are like prancing steeds pouring forward with impetuous speed. (Baker’s New Testament Commentary)
This is the best place to begin in understanding just what the mark and seal of God is:
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment—to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.
In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.
And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation.
Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:3-14)
There are so many truths in this passage, that I could easily write an entire article just on these verses. This is a letter written by Paul to mature believers, as he had lived in the city of Ephesus for more than two years, teaching disciples and confronting demonic worship and witchcraft, and even upsetting the city’s economic structure.
You can read about this in Acts chapter 19.
But I want to focus on the topic of the “mark” and “seal” that is mentioned in this Ephesians letter.
This mark is not a physical mark, but a spiritual one, visible to all in the spiritual realm. The letter to the Ephesians mentions the demonic realm quite a bit, and makes it very clear that Christ rules the realm where they exist, the “heavenly realms.”
Those demonic beings are mentioned later in this first chapter, for example, and Paul wanted to make clear that Christ rules over them, and that once we have the seal of the Holy Spirit, we do too.
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. (Ephesians 1:18-21 – emphasis on the English words used to refer to the hierarchy of the Satanic demonic world.)
The seal of the Holy Spirit marks God’s ownership of us and is a “deposit” of our future inheritance in the Kingdom of Heaven.
As I have written in other articles, there are two competing “kingdoms” on earth in the spiritual realm: the Kingdom of Satan referred to sometimes as the Kingdom of Darkness, and the Kingdom of God, or the Kingdom of Light.
The world system, which includes politics, economics, education, and even religion, is ruled by Satan. We are all born naturally into this kingdom, and we walk in darkness until the truth is revealed to us.
Jesus invaded Satan’s kingdom by being born as a baby to a virgin mother and living a sinless life to break the power Satan held over life and death. Jesus said:
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
He also claimed to have complete power over Satan and his kingdom of darkness:
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
Our ability to enter into the Kingdom of Light came at a steep price: the shed blood of Jesus Christ. He had to offer up his own life as a perfect blood sacrifice. And then he demonstrated his power over Satan and death, by walking out of the grave 3 days later, breaking Satan’s power over the human race.
Our entry into the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, where he currently rules from the heavenly places (but will also return to earth soon), is through spiritual rebirth by faith. See:
And while the “mark of the beast” is now getting all the attention during the rollout of the COVID-19 bioweapon shots, the mark and seal of God is far more important.
This passage in the Book of Revelation makes it clear that the coming judgment upon the earth will affect all mankind with horrible suffering, except for those who have the “seal of God.”
The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss.
When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss.
And out of the smoke locusts came down upon the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth.
They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
They were not given power to kill them, but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
During those days men will seek death, but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them. (Revelation 9:1-6)
Are These “Marks” Physical Marks?
I have previously written that I do not believe that these marks, whether the “mark of the beast/Satan,” or the mark of God through the Holy Spirit, are physical marks.
The “mark” on the right hand or forehead, for example, was first used by Moses in the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible. Moses is instructing the people on how to observe the Passover:
On that day tell your son, ‘I do this because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt.’
This observance will be for you like a sign on your hand and a reminder on your forehead that the law of the LORD is to be on your lips. For the LORD brought you out of Egypt with his mighty hand. (Exodus 13:8-9)
The “signs” here were very likely not literal, as there is no record of the entire nation of Israel getting some kind of physical sign on their forehead and right hands, like a tattoo or something. The only physical sign recorded that the nation used in their covenant with God was the circumcision of males.
The more accepted translation is that “forehead” represents the mind and what we think, and the “right hand” represents actions and work, carrying out by faith what we believe in our minds.
This would be consistent with what James, the half brother of Jesus Christ wrote thousands of years later:
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does. (James 1:22-26)
Likewise, the “mark of the beast” represents the unregenerate mind still controlled by the Satanic world system.
Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace. (Romans 8:5-6)
The Mark of 666 to Participate in the World System is Already Here – It Dominates Our Culture
Many point to the passage in Revelation that the day will come where one cannot buy or sell, or participate in the Satanic economic system, without the mark represented by 666.
But the fact is this has been happening for a very long time already.
Here is a clip from the 5-hour video: Insider Exposes Freemasonry as the World’s Oldest Secret Religion and the Luciferian Plans for The New World Order.
Could there still be a physical sign representing Satan that will be required to participate in the economy, such as a COVID-19 passport?
Maybe, but of far greater importance is whether or not you have been marked by the seal of God with the Holy Spirit.
Satan has NO Power over Those Who are Marked with the Seal of God
There is a lot of misinformation being disseminated right now regarding the “mark of the beast” and “transhumanism.”
One of those false teachings is claiming that if you receive one of the bioweapon COVID shots, that it will alter your DNA and you will become “transhuman,” and therefore can no longer be saved.
This is completely FALSE!
Once we are marked with the seal of the Holy Spirit, we belong to God, and NOTHING can change that. Satan only has permission to harm our physical bodies, and that could certainly include damage from the COVID shots, but we are much more than just our physical bodies.
We also have a soul and a spirit, and once we are joined to God via the seal of the Holy Spirit, Satan has no authority or control to take that away from us.
Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. (2 Corinthians 1:21-22)
Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. (2 Corinthians 5:5)
What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns?
Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:31-39)
Are you Prepared for What is Coming?
So stop worrying about what the “mark of the beast” is going to be, or turning into a “transhuman,” and concentrate instead on being sure you have been marked by the seal of God – because NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!
Do you have any idea of what is coming? Or are you still blinded by the Satanic spirit that dominates our culture? COVID-19 and the bioweapon shots are bad enough, already killing and maiming tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands or millions.
But we have not seen the worst yet.
For those who have eyes to see, even the Globalist corporate media is publishing what is coming down the road.
This was published recently in The Hill:
“A long-term outage owing to EMP could disable most critical supply chains, leaving the U.S. population living in conditions similar to centuries past, prior to the advent of electric power.
In the 1800s, the U.S. population was less than 60 million, and those people had many skills and assets necessary for survival without today’s infrastructure.
An extended blackout today could result in the death of a large fraction of the American people through the effects of societal collapse, disease and starvation.
While national planning and preparation for such events could help mitigate the damage, few such actions are currently under way or even being contemplated.” — Congressional EMP Commission (2017)
The people of Rangely, Colo., are not waiting for Washington to protect them from a Great American Blackout caused by a solar superstorm or cyber warfare or electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. Like several other Western municipalities, Rangely, a town of 2,300 in northwest Colorado, home to a community college, has rolled up its sleeves and, in the best traditions of Western pioneering spirit, independence and self-sufficiency, is building redundant microgrids so they can survive anything.
Texas state Sen. Bob Hall and his colleagues aren’t waiting for Washington to “provide for the common defense,” either. Hall’s bill to protect the Texas electric grid from all hazards — including EMP, cyber warfare and sabotage — recently passed the state Senate.
Texans had a small taste of “electronic apocalypse” in February when an ice storm caused statewide rolling blackouts, resulting in property damage totaling billions of dollars, fuel shortages including a reduction in the national fuel supply, industrial accidents, including a major explosion and fire in a chemical plant, and 100 deaths. Experts have cautioned the same could happen during hot, summer weather.
Sen. Hall, a former Air Force officer and an EMP expert, has been warning Texas for years that electric grid vulnerability to EMP and cyber attack could have catastrophic consequences. The Electric Reliability Council Of Texas (ERCOT), which manages the state’s electricity infrastructure, proved in February that they and the utilities are not even prepared to cope with a severe ice storm, let alone existential threats from EMP and cyber warfare.
