About the author:  I accepted Christ as a young man and studied with various Christian groups.  However, I never found my place in organized religion.  I assumed this was a failing on my part, avoided established fellowship, kept my beliefs to myself and, except for rare occasions, seldom discussed Christianity.  As a writer I find myself compelled to put words on paper concerning various subjects as a pressure valve if nothing else.   Daily events are triggering memories of past studies, and again, compulsion swells inside seeking relief.

Don't believe what I write, or, anyone else for that matter.  Read it for yourself.  Be leery of any doctrine expressed by a person who cannot point out scripture, preferably multiple scriptures, to confirm it.  Unfortunately, modern religious teachings are too often no more accurate that mainstream news.

For almost 2,000-years the "mark of the beast" predicted in Revelations 13, a mark to be required by a dark end-time world despot, was a mystery. 

Revelation 13:16 - And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads;

Revelation 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.

How could a "mark" possibly a tattoo be initiated world-wide that would give a dictator total control over the affairs of billions of people?  The advent of the micro-chip able to store vast amounts of data in an object as small as a grain of rice appears to have solved that mystery.

It goes on to predict the fate of those who receive the mark:

Revelation 14:9 - And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, if any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand;

Revelation 14:10 - The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb;

Revelation 14:11 - And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Essentially, those marked with what is most likely an implanted computer chip, are rewarded with a permanent swim on the Lake of Fire.

But why is it an unforgiveable sin?  After all, a tattoo can be removed, a brand burned away, a computer chip surgically excised.  Is it more than a simple afront to God to receive the Devil's mark of ownership or allegiance?

Jesus shed his life's blood for humanity.  Does the receiving of the mark alter that humanity?  Is it more than a sign of disobedience?  The answer may be in the beginning during the earliest days of humanity.

Genesis 6:1 - And it came to pass, when man began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

Genesis 6:2 - That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Genesis 6:4 - There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

The above were the first genetically altered men mentioned in the Bible, the offspring of rebellious angels who took human form and mated with mortal women.

Genesis 6:12 - And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Note; "For all flesh" had corrupted.  Did it mean that some animals were genetically altered as well?

Since God's creation was altered:

Genesis 6:6 - And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

Genesis 6:7 - And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

Genesis 6:8 - But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Genesis 6:9 - These are the generations of Noah; Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Note; God did not say, "Noah was a perfect man."   Noah was as flawed as all men.  Christians are taught;

 Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

God said, "... he (Noah) was perfect in his generations.

The Bible goes to great lengths listing the lineage of God's men.  Abraham's can be traced back to Adam; King David's back to Abraham; Jesus' back to King David.  And, fortunately, for we believers, ours back to Jesus.

In other words, God acknowledged that Noah's DNA had not been corrupted by the sons of God, the fallen angels.

As mentioned in Genesis 6:4, there were giants before and after the flood, as the angles that followed Satan continued their DNA corrupting ways.  Goliath, slain by a young King David, was not the only Biblical giant.  There are numerous scriptures dealing with their half-human kind. Genesis 14:5 records the smiting of the Rephiam which were giants during the time of Lot and Abraham.

Moses leading the Hebrews out of Egypt sent spies to search out the land and they reported:

Numbers 13:32 - ... it is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof (cannibals); and all the people that we saw in it are men of great stature.

Numbers 13:33 - And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, ... and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers.

Deuteronomy 1:28 - ... The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven.

Deuteronomy 1:29 - Then I said unto you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them.

Deuteronomy 1:30 - The Lord your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did in Egypt before your eyes;

Deuteronomy 2 records the battles fought by Moses and the Hebrews against entire cities and lands controlled by giants.  Deuteronomy 2:30-36 records the battles against King Sihon of Heshbon.  The Hebrews not only destroyed the cities, but killed the men, women and children.  I can only speculate on the reason why.  Was it because their DNA was corrupted, with inhabitants that were only half-human?

Deuteronomy 2:10 - The Emims dwelt in times past, a people great, and many, and tall as the Anakims.

Deuteronomy 2:11 - Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites call them Emins.

Deuteronomy 2:20 - That also was accounted a land of giants (Ammon).

Note: Deuteronomy 9:5 - Not for thy righteousness, ... does thou go to possess their land (the giant Anakims) but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord thy God doth drive them out ...

Deuteronomy 3 records the battles against King Og of Bashan (Bashan, land of the giants, Deuteronomy 3:13) whose iron bed was 13.5 feet long by six-feet wide (Deuteronomy 3:11.)

The Old Testament lists many accounts of giants, from Noah's time, Abraham's, Moses' and the young King David, who obviously must have studied the deeds of his ancestors and figured if they could snuff them so could he.  After taking Goliath's head, he and his men continued killing giants, including Goliath's brother and any demonic spawn that crossed their path.

2 Samuel 21:16-22 - Giants slain by King David and his men.  One of whom of great stature who had six-fingers and six-toes on his feet and hands.

2 Samuel 23:20 - And Benajah ... slew two "lionlike men" of Moab ...

It doesn't go into detail concerning the lionlike men, but one can't help but wonder if the half-human/half-animal creatures of Grecian lore were real.

As mentioned in Genesis, Satan's fallen angels continued their corruption of mankind after the flood, and generations of Hebrews fought, destroyed or drove their offspring out of lands they possessed.

Jesus said in Mathew 24;

Mathew 24:37 - But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Will there again be giants walking the earth?  Some believe so.  But, have they (fallen angels) come up with a less obvious strategy, nefarious and virtually invisible?

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are so prevalent that foods are labeled non-GMO as a selling point.  Not just plants but fish and animals as well.  There are reports of governments experimenting with "super soldiers" genetically altered men, who perhaps could see in the dark without night vision equipment, or who could carry extra weight; the modifications could be endless in scope.

Consider this, the wu-flu vaccine is not a traditional treatment to stimulate the immune system response but, is an mRNA vaccine that reacts with the DNA at the cellular level.  One report claims it inhibits the cells from repairing damaged DNA.

I do not even pretend to understand the science behind CRISPR technology (gene editing), but this is what is reported.

There are also reports that 5G radiation has detrimental affects on humans.  Again, this is far above my pay-grade to comprehend or explain ... but ... is the final missing piece, the trifecta, as it were, an implantable micro-chip that not only stores all personal data including financial, rendering a citizen a two-legged bank card, but also rearranges the host's DNA, which because of vaccines and 5G radiation can no longer repair itself, so that he/she is no longer considered human?  thus, assigned to a swim in the Lake of Fire with non-believers and Satan and his fallen angels?

Jesus liked to call himself the Son of man.  He shed his life's blood (John 3:16) to redeem men created by and in the image of God (Genesis 1:27), not for oversized, half-human, cannibalistic monsters ... and perhaps not even for those who appear human on the outside, but whose DNA has been artificially corrupted.

My take on this is speculative based on my limited knowledge.  End-time prophecies are mysterious and can be frightening (the unknown usually is) so I leave with this:

Deuteronomy 4:30 - When thou are in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the "latter days," if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shall be obedient unto his voice;

Deuteronomy 4:31 - For the Lord thy God is a merciful God; he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he swore unto them.
