But, Let's Not Totally Discredit Not a St-Ignatius Loyolan Wolf's Interpretation Of The MARK Of The BEAST.
For A Careful & Detailed Reading Of Revelation 13 Shows That It's The "Earth-Beast" Of v.11 That "causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first ('Sea-Beast'), whose deadly wound was healed [v.12]".
It's Also This "Earth-Beast" Of v.11 Who:
A."had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."
B."causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive A MARK In Their RIGHT HAND, Or In Their FOREHEADS:"
a."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."
Thus, We See The SEAL For The DOOM OF ETERNAL DAMNATION, IN THE LAKE OF FIRE, Is To HAVE IN ONE'S RIGHT-HAND Or IN ONE'S FOREHEAD:
#1.THE MARK (www ?) #2.THE NAME OF THE BEAST (VICARIUS FILLI DEI ?) #3.THE NUMBER OF HIS (THE SEA &OR EARTH BEAST'S) NAME;
WWW, www Or Whatever MARK Corresponds With THE BEAST'S NAME &Or NUMBER OF HIS NAME.
"Because That, When They Knew God, They Glorified Him Not As God, Neither Were Thankful; But Became Vain In Their Imaginations, And Their Foolish Heart Was Darkened.
Professing Themselves To Be Wise, They Became Fools,
And Changed The Glory Of The Uncorruptible God Into An Image Made Like To Corruptible Man, And To Birds, And Fourfooted Beasts, And Creeping Things.
Wherefore God Also Gave Them Up To Uncleanness Through The Lusts Of Their Own Hearts, To Dishonour Their Own Bodies Between Themselves:
Who Changed The Truth Of God Into A Lie, And Worshipped And Served The Creature More Than The Creator, Who Is Blessed For Ever. Amen.
For This Cause God Gave Them Up Unto Vile Affections, For Even Their Women Did Change The Natural Use Into That Which Is Against Nature:
And Likewise Also The Men, Leaving The Natural Us Of The Woman, Burned In Their Lust One Toward Another, Men With Men Working That Which Is Unseemly, And Receiving In Themselves That Recompence Of Their Error Which Was Meet.
And Even As They Did Not Like To Retain God In Their Knowledge, God Gave Them Over To A Reprobate Mind, To Do Those Things Which Are Not Convenient;
Being Filled With All Unrighteousness, Fornication, Wickedness, Coveteousness, Maliciousness; Full Of Envy..." Romans 1:19-29
If One Is An Historic Biblical Literalist As Myself, One Will Realize That Noah's Biblical Flood Literally Happened & Is Already An Historic Fact; Whether Any 'Famed Archeologist Who Found The Titanic' Says So Or Not !
Noah's Biblical Flood Was Literally A Universal; That Is, A "World-wide" &-Or "Global" All-Earth-Encompassing Flood.
Noah's Flood Was Not Some "Local", "Regional" &-Or "Continental" Flood: But A Totally-Earthly, Worldly & Universally Climatic Catostrophic Event.
And, If One Believes In The Historic Biblical Account/Event Of A "Global 'Universal' Flood"; One Has To Also Believe That All The Human Races On Planet Earth Are Literal, Physical & Genetic "Blood" Descendants Of Noah's Only Surviving Three Sons (& Each Son's Wife):
#1.Shem (The Father Of The Shemitic/Semitic Peoples On Earth)
#2.Ham (The Father Of The Hamitic Peoples On Earth)
#3.Japheth (The Father Of The Japhetic Peoples On Earth)
"Now These Are The Generations Of The Sons Of Noah, Shem, Ham, And Japheth: And Unto Them Were Sons Born After The Flood...
By These (The Sons Of Japheth) Were The Isles Of The Gentiles Divided In Their Lands; Every One After His Tongue, After Their Families, In Their Nations...
