The Mark of the Beast


The mark of the beast is one of the clearest prophecies of the Bible. It simply says that in the last days no man or woman will be able to buy or sell anything unless they are willing to receive “the mark” on their right hand or forehead. How close are we to such a totalitarian system? Are all of the necessary pieces already in place? You’ll find the answers in this stunning docu-drama from Dr. Jack and Rexella Van Impe. You’ll be amazed to hear about the latest developments in computer surveillance, spy satellites, implantable microchips, hand-scan machines and global databases. Through controversial interviews with leading figures in these new technologies, social reform and prophecy, you’ll get the latest information on these astounding developments that foretell the coming of the mark of the beast.

Dove Review

“The Mark of the Beast” does a remarkable job showing the way things could be in the world before long. With today’s technology and surveillance capabilities, not to mention microchips, the opportunities for the “Beast” of the book of Revelation to cause people to accept his mark, name or number, are staggering. Dr. Jack Van Impe and his wife Rexella share Scripture and news stories to indicate that the time of the return of the Lord is definitely drawing closer.

The film features scenes of a young man jailed with an older man for their faith in Christ. They might face death in this short, futuristic drama. This is balanced with the teaching of Jack Van Impe and Rexella Van Impe’s news stories. The song “I Pledge Allegiance to the Lamb” by Ray Boltz is featured, also showing a few martyr scenes. The documentary also mentions the anti-Christian attitudes of some countries, including one that views the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Association and the Assemblies of God, a fundamentalist Christian organization, as cults!

We are pleased to award this insightful documentary, “The Mark of the Beast,” our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12+. This film will encourage you to be ready and watchful as the “Day of the Lord draws nigh.”
