did the mark of the beast exist in america a hundred and fifty years ago?

i have found that the mark of the beast existed in the days of cain, in the days of Noah, so doest the mark exist today without the computer chip? The curse of cain is described as the mark of God. but the mark of the beast was initiated in the secret combinations of Cain and has existed throughout all history and has existed in all itsforms ever since.

Update:

but with everything you say, the mark of the beast is still the mark of Cain that God gave him, and all his people began to mark themselves with. Such people grow in power and overcome society with their influence and power. Such mark existed 150 years ago with gov lybern boggs. and it has existed since the days of cain and the days of Noah and came through the flood through HAM and sodom and gomorah had it. of course my proof for the mark of lybern boggs is a shaky quote from parley p pratt. I should find it again and post the source.

    Questions answered in KJV BIBLE: What are the 4 beasts in Daniel, Who is the Beast/Anti-Christ; What is the Mark of the Beast; What is the image of the Beast, and many others.

    NEBUCHADNEZZAR'S DREAM

    To start out; we have to know the empires in the book of Daniel.

    Daniel mentions these 4 beasts clearly; starting from Babylon and ending with Rome as the last and final beast.

    Daniel 2:28 = "But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days..."

    Daniel 2:32 = "This image's head was of fine gold..."

    Daniel 3:1 = Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plains of dura, in the province of Babylon.

    Daniel 7:3-4 = "And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse from one another. The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it."

    *Daniel 2:32,38; 7:4; 3:1 "Head of Gold" = Lion = Babylon = King Nebuchadnezzar {625-539B.C.}

    Daniel 2:32 = "...his breast and his arms of silver..."

    Daniel 5:25-28 = "And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpetation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKERL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. Peres; Thy kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians."

    Daniel 6:28 = "So this Darius prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian."

    Daniel 7:5 = "And behold another beast, a second like a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus into it. Arise and devour much flesh."

    Daniel 8:20 = "The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia."

    *Daniel 2:32; 7:5; 5:25-28; 6:28; 8:20 "Breast and Arms of Silver" = Bear/Ram = Medo-Persia = King Darius & Cyrus {558-330B.C.}

    Daniel 2:32 = "...his belly and his thighs of brass."

    Daniel 7:6 = "After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given into it."

    Daniel 8:21 = "And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between the eyes is the first king."

    *Daniel 2:32; 7:6: 8:21 "Belly and thighs of brass" = Leopard/Goat = Greece = Alexander the Great {333-31B.C.}

    Daniel 2:33 = "His legs of iron,..."

    Daniel 7:7 = "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it; and it had ten horns."

    Daniel 7:8 = "I considered the horns, and behold, there came upon them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots, and behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things."

    Daniel 8:9 = "And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceedingly great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land."

    Daniel 8:12 = "And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of trangression(sin), and it cast down the truth to the ground: and it practiced, and prospered."

    *Daniel 2:33; 7:7,8,24,25: 8:9,12 "Legs of Iron" = Dreadful Beast = Rome {31B.C.-476A.D.}

    *Daniel 2:33 "his feet part of iron and part of clay." = Divided Empire

    **********************************************************************

    WHO ARE THESE 10 HORNS?

    **Now the 10 horns represents kings or kingdoms and 1 comes up among the them and destroys (DANIEL 7:8,23,24)three.

    3 Successive Horns uprooted (babarians followers of Arianism destroyed on papal authority--this period called the "transition age" in Philip Myers' Ancient History, p.571)

    AND THEN A LITTLE HORN COMES UPON THE SCENE THAT HAS DESTROYED THE HERULI (under Odoacer) 476-493AD, KINGDOM OF THE VANDALS 429-533AD AND KINGDOM OF THE OSTROGOTHS 493-554AD.

    NOW DETERMINING WHO THE HORN IS: A.C. FLICK, THE RISE OF THE MEDIAEVAL CHURCH. (PUTNAM'S 1909 ED.)PP.148-149.

    *FROM THE CLUES IN THE BIBLE; WE KNOW IT'S THE ROMAN EMPIRE (REV.17:4; COMPARE TO MATT.27:28 AND MARK 15:17,20

    Rev.17:4 = "And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colur,..."

    Matt.27:28 = "And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe."

    Mark 15:16,17 = "And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they called together the whole band. And they clothed him with purple, and plaited a crown of thorns, and put it upon his head."

    Mark 15:20 = "And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple, and plaited a crown of thorns, and put it upon his head."

    Little horn among the 10 (Daniel 7:8,20-22,24-27)

    2-Horned Lamb-Like Beast from earth and image(Rev.13:11-18)

    Royally Clad Harlot named Mystery, Babylon the Great (Rev.17:1-6)

    Symbolic meaning = False Christian Religion Ruling the Beast

    Historical Fulfillment = Roman Catholic Church under the Pope (in the image of the Roman civil government)

    Now to continue:

    REV.17:10 "And there are seven kings: five have fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space."

    4th Horn = 1st of Last 7 horns = 1st Head of Scarlet Beast ridden by Harlot = Imperial Restoration of the West under Justinian (554AD)

    5th Horn = 2nd of Last 7 horns = 2nd Head ridden by Harlot = Carolingian Empire (Charlemagne crowned in 800AD)

    6th Horn = 3rd of last 7 horns = 3rd Head ridden by Harlot = Holy Roman Empire (Otto the Great crowned in 926AD)

    7th Horn = 4th of last 7 horns = 4th Head ridden by Harlot = Hapsburg Dynasty (Charles v crowned in 1530AD)

    8th Horn = 5th of last 7 horns = 5th Head ridden by Harlot = Napoleon's Empire 1804-1814AD

    Symbolic Meaning of the 4th to the 8th Horn = Revivals of the Beast: The 7 last horns of Daniel 7 and Revelation 13 are the same as the Scarlet Beast of Revelation 17.

    (5 of which are "fallen" when Napoleon is defeated in 1814--Rev.17:10

    Deadly Wound was healed in 554AD-1814. This would be 1,260 years when Napoleon crushed the "Holy Roman Emopire" in 1814.

    {A time = a prophetic year. Times (or two times as stated in the margin of some versions)would be two years, half a time = one half a year. This makes a total of 3-1/2 years, or 1260 days, caculating at 360 days in a prophetic year. Daniel 7:25 and Revelation 12:6,13,14 equates the 1260 years with the time, times and one half time.}

    9th Horn = 6th of last 7 horns = 6th Head ridden by Harlot = "One IS" (Revelation 17:10)--understood by God's Church in end time (Daniel 12:9-10). Historical Fulfillment = Italy and Germany ending in the Hitler-Mussolini Axis 1870-1945AD

    THE CATHOLIC ADVOCATE (AUSTRALIA), APRIL 18,1929.

    FRONT PG. OF S.F. CHRONICLE WITH HEADLINE "HEAL WOUND OF MANY YEARS"; FEB.12,1929)

    10th Horn = 7th of last 7 horns = 7th Head ridden by Harlot (with ten horns); 8th System if Beast itself is 1st (Rev.17:11)

    Symbolic Meaning = Other Revival That Has "NOT YET COME" (Revelation 17:10)

    Historical Fulfillment = Last Revival of the Roman Empire (10 National Rulers under a single leader)

    REV.17:10 was fulfilled on television when the Papacy said "that Benedict would be Pope for a short time."

    These 10 (Rev.17:12-13)rulers will be giving their support to a coming union of church and state in Europe, which will aspire to world dominance. After an interlude of apparent peace and prosperity, the system will plunge the whole world into a nightmare(World War 3).

    WHO IS THE BEAST OF DANIEL AND REVELATION?

    Rev.13:18 "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

    ~~~~~~~~~~"HIS NAME" AND "HIS NUMBER" ~~~~~

    Rev.13:17 = "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."

    "The number indicated by the letters of HIS NAME." 20th Century New Testament

    "Verse 18, Six Hundred Sixty Six, The numeral letters of HIS NAME shall make up this number." Douay (Catholic) Bible. Note on Revelation 13:18.

    "The method of reading generally adopted is that known as the GHEMATRIA of the rabbins, which assigns each letter of a name it's usual numerical value, and given the sum of such numbers as the equivalant of the NAME," "Word Studies in the N. T.", Marvin R. Vincent, D.D., notes on Revelation 13:18.

    "The Pope is of great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God and the VICAR OF GOD."

    "The Pope is of such lofty and supreme dignity that, properly speaking, he has not been established in any rank of dignity, but rather has been placed upon the very summit of all ranks of dignities."...

    "He is likewise the divine monarch and supreme emperor and king of kings."

    "HENCE THE POPE IS CROWNED WITH A TRIPLE CROWN, AS KING OF HEAVEN AND OF EARTH AND OF THE LOWER REGIONS." Ferraris' Eccl. Dictionary (Catholic) Article, Pope.

    "What are the letters supposed to be in the Pope's crown, and what do they signify, if anything?"

    "The letters inscribed in the Pope's miter are these VICARIUS FILII DEI, which is the Latin for 'VICAR OF THE SON OF GOD.' Catholics hold that the church, which is a visible society, must have a visible head. Christ, before his ascension into heaven, appointed St. Peter to act as His represenative....Hence the bishop of Rome, as head of the church, was given the title~'VICAR OF CHRIST'." Our Sunday Visitor, (Catholic Weekly) "Bureau of Information," Huntington, Ind., April 18, 1915.

    According to:

    http://www.aloha.net/~mikesch/vicarius-filii-dei-d...

    OUR SUNDAY VISITOR, (CATHOLIC WEEKLY) BUREAU OF INFORMATION," HUNTINGTON, IND., APRIL 18, 1915;it says on the pope's crown(tiara) are these letters: VICARIUS FILII DEI; what do they signify?

    ROMAN NUMERALS FOR THESE LETTERS ARE: V=5; I=1; C=100; U=5; D=500; L=50 = THEY ADD UP TO 666.

    (note: Jesus called God "Holy Father", but Roman Catholics call the pope "Most Holy Father" and "VICAR OF CHRIST" which means "in place of Christ"!)

    It's also in the word Lateinos(Latin Man or Church); a Greek term referring to the Romans.

    Also "the Latin Kingdom" (h Latine Basileia) has a numerical value of 666.

    Also in Hebron--Romiith (Roman Kingdom)

    The Book of Revelation was written in Greek for Greek-speaking churches in Ancient Asia Minor.

    Another name is Nero Caesar; in Greek it was spelled Neron Kaesar. He martyred most of the Apostles including Peter and Paul. When his name is spelled out in Hebrew characters; the numeral value also adds up to 666.

    Ancient Rome was founded by Romulus; the name was derived from Rome and Roman. Romvlvs a Latin name that was written in Hebrew as Romiith. In the Hebrew language; these letters also add up to 666. (resh=200, vau=6, mem=40, yod=10, tau=400).

    Roman Kingdom is always stamped with the number 666 in Greek and Hebrew; the two languages from the Bible.

    WHO IS THE ANTI-CHRIST?

    I'm going to put this in a simple way for you to understand it. Anti-Christ means "against Christ"; in other words is against Jesus and his teachings.

    PHIL.2:21 "FOR ALL SEEK THEIR OWN, NOT THE THINGS WHICH ARE JESUS CHRIST'S."

    The Anti-Christ is the "lawless one"; the "man of sin" which "opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped..." 2Thess.2:3-4

    (note: Catholics confess their sins in booths to the Priest.

    Who can forgive sins, but God alone, but priests say to people their sins are forgiven.)

    DANIEL 7:25 tells us "HE SHALL SPEAK GREAT WORDS AGAINST THE MOST HIGH, AND SHALL WEAR OUT THE SAINTS OF THE MOST HIGH, AND THINK TO CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS..."

    ROM.1:25 = "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."

    Evidence: (Catholics know when the seventh day is)

    "1. Is Saturday the 7th day occording to the Bible & the 10 Commandments.

    "I answer yes.

    "2. Is Sunday the first day of the week & did the Church change the 7th day--Saturday---for Sunday, the 1st. day:

    "Ques.--Which is the Sabbath day?

    "Ans.--Saturday is the Sabbath day.

    "Ques.--Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?

    "Ans.--We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday."--Peter Geiermann, The Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1946 ed.), p.50. Geiermann received the "apostolic blessing" of Pope Pius x on his labors, Jan.25,1910.

    "Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change was her act...And the act is a Mark of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things." ---H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons.

    {Note: Catholics even changed the time you do the Sabbath too. They say "midnight to midnight"; when the Bible says "evening to evening" according to Genesis 1:5,8,13,19,23,31 and Lev.23:32.}

    TEN COMMANDMENTS IN OLD TESTAMENT

    1. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.

    2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath. or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation that hate Me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep my commandments.

    3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.

    4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    5. Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

    6. Thou shalt not kill.

    7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.

    8. Thou shalt not steal.

    9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

    10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ***, nor anything that is thy neighbor's.

    3. "That the name of God and His doctrine be not blashemed." = 1Tim.6:1

    4. "Pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day." "The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath: therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath." "For He spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all His works." "There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is ebntered into His rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His." "For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in the earth." = Matt.24:20; Mark 2:27-28; Heb.4:4,9,10, margin Col.1:16.

    5. "Honor thy father and thy mother" = Matt.19:19

    10. "Thou shalt not covet" = Rom.7:7

    AFTER JESUS'S DEATH

    "Do we then make void thy law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law." = Rom.3:31

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    THE TEN COMMANDMENTS AS CHANGED BY THE PAPACY

    1. I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me.

    (It will be observed that the second commandment as found in the Bible is left out.)

    2. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

    3. Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day.

    "A Doctrinal catechism," (Catholic) pg.174, has the following question and answer:---

    "Q.--Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?"

    "A.--Had she not such power...she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for Saturday, the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority."

    4. Honor thy father and thy mother.

    5. Thou shalt not kill.

    6. Thou shalt not commit adultery.

    7. Thou shalt not steal.

    8. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

    MARK OF THE BEAST/IMAGE OF THE BEAST

    Mark of the Beast is a (Rev.17:13)Form of Government(Roman Empire is always stamped with the number 666 in Greek and Hebrew; the two languages from the Bible); it has an ecclesiastical and a civil government(Rev.13:11).The pope is both a religious leader as a civil head of state.The Mark of the Beast will probably be forced by Sunday Law as it was back then. It will be when the the Pope uses the power of the state (beast) to force his will to the world; to worship this system. It is a brand of disobedience; it's not a physical mark(compare Rev.14:10 with Col.3:6); just like the Seal of God in Deut.6:8{knowing, doing and keeping the Sabbath holy}and Rev.7:2-3 is not a literal mark. {"The hand is a symbolic of actions, while the forehead is the seat of intellect. Obedience to God involves both actions (hand) and will(forehead)".}

    The mark of the beast that Revelation speaks of has not come on the scene yet, for the Rapture hasn't occurred, nor has the Antichrist risen to his fullest station of authority in which he uses said mark as a means of socio/economic control. But I do agree that the things that can be done to a computer chip to enable it to store and share all the information needed for one man to have universal global control of the population are in existence. We're being well programmed towards acceptance of such an institution and don't even realize it!
