The Mark of the Beast Revelation 13: Identifying the Beast with the Number and the Mark by Ezra Celestin offers a fresh interpretation and very interesting facts to corroborate the meaning of Saint John’s Mark of the Beast in the book of Revelation, one of the controversial books in the Bible and one that has suffered all forms of interpretations over the years. Contrary to the belief that the Mark of the Beast is a symbol of a future event, the author demonstrates, with ample argument, proof and data, that the Beast is a reality that impacts contemporary history, politics, and culture. In a lucid analysis, the author unveils the face of the Beast and indicates how every word in this prophecy points to the United States as the body of the Beast, and how other nations form parts of its symbolic body. It is curious and intriguing to note how the “coat of arms of the divided nations of Europe … the countries of the former Roman Empire” symbolizes the mark of the Beast.
Ezra Celestin shows great mastery of the scriptures and offers a comprehensive interpretation of Revelation 13, showing its link to passages from other compelling books like the book of Daniel. The writing is very accessible and its message comes across with stunning clarity to the average reader. The Mark of the Beast Revelation 13: Identifying the Beast with the Number and the Mark will shock many readers by the things it unveils. This is a book for open-minded people and you shouldn’t read this if you are not open to seeing the world the way it is: through the eyes of a prophet who saw it before it transformed into what it is today. In this slim but powerful book, the author makes readers understand that the scriptures are not words spoken for a future generation, but words that come alive in our own time, in our own generation. The book is highly informative, eye-opening, and entertaining.
