There are many signs and wonders that must precede the advent of the Messiah Jesus Christ and one of them is revelation of the Antichrist and the mark of the Beast. In Christian eschatology, the Antichrist, or anti-Christ, refers to people prophesied by the Bible to oppose Christ and substitute themselves in Christ's place before the Second Coming.
The main passage in the Bible that mentions the "mark of the beast" is Revelation 13:15-18. Other references can be found in the book of Revelation 14:9,11, 15:2, 16:2, 19:20 and 20:4. This mark acts as a seal for the followers of the Antichrist and the false prophet(who is the spokesperson for the Antichrist). The Bible references display place the false prophet as the(second beast), is the one who cause people to take this mark. The mark is placed in the hand or forehead, and is not simply a card someone carries.
The recent breakthroughs in the medical implant child and RFID technologies have increased interest in the mark of the beast spoken of in Revelation chapter 13. It is possible that the technology we are seeing today represents the beginning stages of what may eventually be used as the mark of the beast. It is important to realize that a medical implant chip is not the mark of the beast. The mark of the beast will be something given to the Antichrist worshippers. Having a medical or financial microchip inserted in your right hand or forehead is not the mark of the beast. The mark of the beast will be an end-time identification required by the Antichrist to buy or sell, and it will be given only to those who worship the Antichrist. Any of these things are possible, but at the same time they are all speculations. We should not spend a lot of time speculating on the precise details.
The meaning of 666 is a mystery as well. Some speculated that there was a connection to June 6, 2006"06/06/06. However, in Revelation chapter 13, the number 666 identifies a person, not a date. Revelation 13:18, "Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666." Somehow, the number 666 will identify the Antichrist. For centuries the Bible interpreters have been trying to identity certain individuals with 666. Nothing is conclusive. That is why Revelation 13:18 says the number requires wisdom. When the Antichrist is revealed(2Thessalonians 2:3-4), it will be clear will be clear who he is and how the number 666 identifies him.
