(A Biblical overview and examination of our stance)

Have you ever seen this?

Precursor to the Modern Trade Mark.
You shall be surprised as to its significance!

Q. What scripture speaks of the mark of the beast?

A. Revelation 13:17

"he [the two-horned beast] provides that no one should be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name."

Consider the following table:

"buy or sell"


"the mark"


"the name of the beast"


"the number of his name"

registration number

To "buy or sell" = Trade

Having "the mark" = Mark

"The name of the beast" = Name

"The number of his name" = The Registration Number

The Trade Mark Name: Federal Reg. # 1,177,185

The "Mark of the Beast" Is Imposed
Only on a "Small Remnant"

"An apostate church will unite with the powers of earth and hell to place upon the forehead or in the hand, the mark of the beast, and prevail upon the children of God to worship the beast and his image. They will seek to compel them to renounce their allegiance to God's law . . . . Then will the gold be separated from the dross . . . ."

Advent Review and Sabbath Herald, November 8, 1892.

When the time of Jacob's trouble comes,
"The seal of the living God is upon His people. This small remnant, unable to defend themselves . . . make God their defense. The decree has been passed by the highest earthly authority that ['this small remnant'] shall worship the beast and receive his mark under pain of persecution and death."

Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, p. 213.

"At the time when the danger and depression of the church are greatest,
THE LITTLE COMPANY [Creation 7th Day Adventists] who are standing in the light will be sighing and crying for the abominations that are done in the land. But more especially will their prayers arise in behalf of the [SDA] church because its' members are doing after the manner of the world . . . . They lament and afflict their souls because pride, avarice, selfishness, and deception of almost every kind are in the [SDA] church."

Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, pp. 209-210.

"The SAINTS [Creation 7th Day Adventists] will be AN OBSCURE PEOPLE, but little known to the Catholics, but the [SDA] church and nominal Adventists will know of our faith and customs, and will betray the saints and report them . . . ."
