|The Remnant Church of Jesus Christ
|Due to limited space, we are going to show briefly our belief on that which is presented here.
We believe that our eternal life can depend upon our understanding and obedience to this latter day “Mark of the Beast
prophecy”, (REVELATION 14:9-10) (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, (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:” (II Peter 3:7,10;
Rev. 19:20-21; Rev. 20:10; Rev. 21:8).
We believe that the “Little Horn” power of Daniel 7 and the “Beast” of Revelation”, chapters 13 and 17, are one and the same;
and we will show the parallels between these particular scriptures of Daniel and Revelation, as follows:
Both prophecies have ten horns; both have a mouth that speaks great things; both are blasphemers; both made war against
God’s saints and overcame them. Both prophets are speaking of this same individual apostate religious power.
As you are already aware, the Little Horn power, the Beast, and the woman who sits upon the scarlet coloured Beast is the
Roman Papacy, who changed God’s holy law. The Beast is the Roman Papal power structure and office of the Roman Catholic
Church. We are not implying in any way, whatsoever, that it is the Catholic people or parishioners.
Many churches teach that the Mark of the Beast is the number 666; others believe it was the late Nelson Rockefeller; still
others, the great computer in Belgium; others the Illuminati; still others a laser beam mark on the body; and the list goes on.
However, there is only one truth, and that is found only in God’s Holy Bible. The Word of God is Spiritual, and it is our belief
that the Mark of the Beast is a spiritual mark. However, we do not rule out entirely that it could also be a physical mark.
There are three important facts about the “Beast Power.” First, He has a NAME; Second, He has a MARK; and Third,
there is a NUMBER OF HIS NAME.
We believe that the number 666 is the number of a man or the Beast power. This number is to help identify who this Beast
power is, (REVELATION 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
At the time of Jesus and centuries after His death, the Roman Empire ruled the world. At that time, Latin was the predominant
language of the Roman Empire, as proven in John 19:19-20 where the superscription written by Pilate that was nailed to the
cross of Christ read “Jesus of Nazareth the King of the Jews”, which was written in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. The Latin
number system consisted of Roman numerals and at that time of history, many influential Romans used the Roman numerals in
their name for identification. The Roman Popes have a Latin title of “VICARIUS FILII DEI”, which means “Vicar of the Son of
God” or “another God on earth.” At the fourth session of the Fifth Lateran Council of the Catholic Church from oration of
Christopher Marcellus, taken from Labbe & Cossart’s History of the Councils: published in 1672, Vol. XIV, Col. 109, these
titles of the Pope were used: “For thou art the Shepherd, thou art the Physician, thou art the director, thou art the husbandman,
finally thou art another God on earth.” All of these titles are found in the Bible and are in reference to Jesus Christ the Son of
God. These titles constitute “BLASPHEMY” along with the hearing of confession and the granting of absolution or forgiveness
of sins, which only God can do, (Mark 2:7; Matt. 9:3-4,6; etc. ).
We believe that God further identifies the Beast by using her colors and the golden cup. We know that the Catholic Church uses
the gold chalice in all of her daily masses and feast days. In the Bible studies we reveal or turn that golden cup of abominations
and filthiness upside down. Note how God refers to this Beast as a blasphemous power. This woman or church is an apostate
church, as God refers to her as a “whore”. We also know, and history confirms, that the Roman Papacy for 1,260 years (known
as the Dark Ages) shed the blood of God’s saints through persecution, torture, and death at the hands of the Kings of Europe
and Asia. Countless millions of God’s people were murdered in the name of Christ, from the three extinct Arian powers to the
Crusades to the Reformation, (REVELATION 17:1-6) (1) “AND THERE CAME ONE OF THE SEVEN ANGELS WHICH
HAD THE SEVEN VIALS, AND TALKED WITH ME, SAYING UNTO ME, COME HITHER; I WILL SHOW UNTO THEE
THE JUDGMENT OF THE GREAT WHORE THAT SITTETH UPON MANY WATERS: (2) WITH WHOM THE KINGS
OF THE EARTH HAVE COMMITTED FORNICATION, AND THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH HAVE BEEN MADE
DRUNK WITH THE WINE OF HER FORNICATION. (3) SO HE CARRIED ME AWAY IN THE SPIRIT INTO THE
WILDERNESS: AND I SAW A WOMAN SIT UPON A SCARLET COLOURED BEAST, FULL OF NAMES OF
BLASPHEMY, HAVING SEVEN HEADS AND TEN HORNS. (4) AND THE WOMAN WAS ARRAYED IN PURPLE AND
SCARLET COLOUR, AND DECKED WITH GOLD AND PRECIOUS STONES AND PEARLS, HAVING A GOLDEN CUP
IN HER HAND FULL OF ABOMINATIONS AND FILTHINESS OF HER FORNICATION: (5) AND UPON HER
FOREHEAD WAS A NAME WRITTEN, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND
ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (6) AND I SAW THE WOMAN DRUNKEN WITH THE BLOOD OF THE SAINTS,
AND WITH THE BLOOD OF MARTYRS OF JESUS: AND WHEN I SAW HER, I WONDERED WITH GREAT
God further identifies this Beast power by her colors of scarlet and purple. The Cardinals of the Catholic Church wear
scarlet robes and hats, while the Bishops and Monsignors wear purple and black. The Lenten season is celebrated with the use
of purple vestments, and all statues and crucifixes are covered with purple material. There are other identifying texts that further
substantiate who this Beast power is in our Bible studies.
We believe that there are other apostate protestant churches that God says are her daughters because they have accepted her name
and mark. The Roman Papal whore is the “MOTHER OF HARLOTS”, which means she has “daughters” (other apostate
churches) who are like her. We will show what her daughters have in common with their apostate “Holy Mother the Church”,
(REVELATION 17:5) “AND UPON HER FOREHEAD WAS A NAME WRITTEN, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT,
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” These are spiritual and carnal abominations.
We believe that the “Mark of the Beast” is the changing of God’s times and laws (His Ten Commandments); especially the
fourth, which pertains to the seventh day Sabbath, previously presented in the section on Sunday. It certainly takes a lot of
audacity and impudence to blatantly change God’s commandments and claim to be “another God on earth”, making the Pope
infallible. Another blasphemous ritualism (amongst others) is the hearing of confession and the absolution or forgiveness of
sins, for which they boast of their power (DANIEL 7:25) “AND 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: AND THEY SHALL BE GIVEN INTO HIS HAND UNTIL A TIME AND TIMES AND THE DIVIDING OF TIME.”
The following is taken from the Catholic Church:
(Q) What is the third commandment?
(A) The third commandment is: Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day.
(Q) Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
(A) We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea (A.D. 336), transferred
the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.
(Q) How prove you that the church hath power to command feasts and holy days?
(A) By the very act of changing the Sabbath into Sunday, which Protestants allow of; and therefore they fondly contradict
themselves, by keeping Sunday strictly, and breaking most other feasts commanded by the same church (Christmas Day,
Easter Sunday, etc.).
(Q) How prove you that?
(A) Because by keeping Sunday, they acknowledge the Church’s power to ordain feasts, and to command them under sin.” (An
Abridgment of the Christian Doctrine, p.58, and the Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, by Rev. Peter Giermann, C.SS.R.,
published by B. Herder, of St. Louis, Missouri, 1910, pp. 49,50)
“You may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday.
The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify.” (Written by Cardinal Gibbons in,
“Faith of Our Fathers”, edition of 1917, pp. 72-73).
(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 done that in which all modern religionists agree with her; ----she could not have
substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.” (A Doctrinal
Catechism, p.174, by Rev. Stephen Keenan, published by J. P. Kennedy and Sons, New York City), etc...
We believe, as to the changing of God’s seventh day Sabbath to Sunday, it was her act (the Catholic Church) and her
ecclesiastical “MARK”. (Hence, the MARK of the Beast).......”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.” Taken from: (In a letter written in November,
1895, by Mr. H. F. Thomas, chancellor to Cardinal Gibbons, this quotation was taken from a reply to an inquiry as to whether the
Catholic Church claims to have changed the Sabbath.)
We believe that the acceptance of Sunday as the holy worship day of God in place of God’s Fourth Commandment and seventh
day (Saturday) Sabbath constitutes receiving “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.”
We believe to receive the mark in the forehead or in the hands is spiritual and symbolic. The forehead (or frontal lobe) is that
portion of the mind that is the decision-making part of the brain. With the mind, you either accept or reject God’s Mark of the
Beast prophecy relating to His Fourth Commandment and seventh day Sabbath of worship. To symbolically and spiritually
receive the mark in your hands is to work on God’s holy Sabbath day. As it is written (Exodus 20:10) “....thou shalt not do any
We believe that God has sent three angels . In these last days to bring this message loud and clear to the whole world. The Fourth
Commandment of God represents Creation and the bringing back of God’s faithful followers to worshipping God the Creator on
His holy seventh day Sabbath, thus bringing us back to the keeping of His holy law. Babylon (spiritual Babylon) is fallen, that
great City of Rome that embraces the Vatican and the holy Roman sea, (REVELATION 14:6-10) (6) “AND I SAW
ANOTHER ANGEL FLY IN THE MIDST OF HEAVEN, HAVING THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL TO PREACH UNTO
THEM THAT DWELL ON THE EARTH, AND TO EVERY NATION, AND KINDRED, AND TONGUE, AND PEOPLE, (7)
SAYING WITH A LOUD VOICE, FEAR GOD, AND GIVE GLORY TO HIM; FOR THE HOUR OF HIS JUDGMENT IS
COME: AND WORSHIP HIM THAT MADE HEAVEN, AND EARTH, AND THE SEA, AND THE FOUNTAINS OF
WATERS. (8) AND THERE FOLLOWED ANOTHER ANGEL, SAYING, BABYLON IS FALLEN, IS FALLEN, THAT
GREAT CITY, BECAUSE SHE MADE ALL NATIONS DRINK OF THE WINE OF THE WRATH OF HER FORNICATION.
(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, (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:” (Gen. 2:1-3; Ex. 20:8-11; Rev. 17:5; Rev. 18:1-9; Ezek. 20:12,
20; Ex. 31:13,16-17; Isa. 42:21; Heb. 4:1-11; etc.)
We believe that God has given His last warning for His faithful followers to “come out of her”, the apostate “whore” (the
Roman Catholic Church) and her “harlot” daughters (the Sunday-keeping Protestant churches in the world) before it is too late,
(REVELATION 18:4) “AND I HEARD ANOTHER VOICE FROM HEAVEN, SAYING, COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE,
THAT YE BE NOT PARTAKERS OF HER SINS, AND THAT YE RECEIVE NOT OF HER PLAGUES.”
|MARK OF THE BEAST
|Daniel 7:8, 20-21, 25
(8) I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among
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.
(20) And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other
which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that
had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look
was more stout than his fellows.
(21) I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and
prevailed against them;
(25) And 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: and they shall be given into his hand until a time
and times and the dividing of time.
|Revelation 13:1, 5-7
(1) "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise
up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his
horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
(5) And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things
and blasphemies: and power was given unto him to continue
forty and two months.
(6) And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to
blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in
(7)And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to
overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds,
and tongues, and nations.
"So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I
saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of
blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns"
