4. According to Revelation 12:3-5, who was this dragon beast?
Answer: ______________________________________________________
(NOTE: While the dragon primarily represents Satan, it is interesting to
note that the dragon has seven heads. Satan uses various world
powers to try to destroy God’s work. In this case it was Herod,
a Roman governor, who tried to kill Jesus when He was born. It
was Pilate, another Roman ruler who finally put Him to death. So
the dragon represents Satan working through pagan Rome
in this prophecy.)

Answer: ______________________________________________________
(NOTE: Notice, these horns are not crowned. This nation will have

in all these things?

the Supreme Court rules the Sunday laws in three states constitutional.
14. Has this brought persecution in the past?
Answer: Yes, here is one instance of many that could be given. In
Tennessee several years ago 120 Adventist were arrested and twelve of
these were put in the chain gang with criminals for such offences
as digging potatoes for dinner, mending a screen door, and
splitting wood in a shed on Sunday.
15. Another Thought Question: Could this be the beginning of the
making of an image to the beast?
Answer: ______________________________________________________
16. What does the Lord plead with us to turn from in Ezek. 33:11?
Answer: ______________________________________________________
17. A Personal Decision: When the U.S. unites religion with the state
and makes a law for all to worship the image, it is my desire and
purpose to listen to the pleading voice of Jesus rather than yield
to the forces of the image.

ASSIGNMENT: Read GC 442-445.

33
The Mark of the Beast
Lesson Twenty

1. The beast has an image and a mark. What are we warned not to do
about this? Rev. 14:9,10
Answer: ______________________________________________________
(NOTE: The union of church and state in Rome is called the beast in
Revelation. The union of church and state in the U.S. is called the image
of the beast. The beast also has a mark.)
2. Read the text where the mark is mentioned in Revelation:
Rev. 14:9; 15:2; 19:20; 20:4.
3. What is God’s mark or sign according to Ezek. 20:12?

Answer: ______________________________________________________

Answer: ______________________________________________________
(NOTE: You will recall in a past study we learned that the two-horned
beast represents the U.S.)
6. Our country will enforce the mark; therefore it is something that
Protestant Americans believe in. It must be a day, as God’s
mark is a day. What day is it that Catholics have made Protestants keep?
Answer: ______________________________________________________
7. Do Catholics recognize Sunday as their mark?
Answer: Yes. Listen to the Chancellor to Cardinal Gibbons, C.F.Thomas,
in a letter dated October 28, 1894: “Of course the Catholic church
claims the change was her act... and the act is a MARK of her
ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matter.”
8. Think it through: Many states already have Sunday laws. A brief sent to
the legislature of California in 1961 questioned:
“If a state can force a store to close on Sunday, conversely can a state
force a store to open on Sunday or Saturday? If a state can tell when to
sell, can it also tell what to sell, where to sell, and who to sell
to? (Dateline Sunday- U.S.A., pg 180.)

34
Soon Sunday will be enforced in our national government. When that
happens, what will you do? Will you receive God’s seal or the mark of
the beast?
9. A Personal Decision: Read 1 Kings 18:21. I chose today to receive
the seal of God and to follow God all of the way.

(NOTE: Ellen G. White had similar experiences in losing her natural

Eph. 4:11-13?

(NOTE: Because God instructed Mrs. White, we have a chain of
sanitariums, hospitals, clinics, and dispensaries around the world. We
also have school where our children can receive a Christian education
free from evolution. In her books can also be found the material
which greatly helps in perfecting character.)

38

tasting and seeing for oneself, I choose to do this by reading more of

Answer: ______________________________________________________
9. How long was she in the wilderness? Verse 6

5. Why is Babylon fallen? Rev. 18:2,3
Answer: ______________________________________________________

uniting with the kings of the earth to obtain power.

Answer: ______________________________________________________
7. Who lives in Babylon according to Rev. 18:2?
Answer: ______________________________________________________
(NOTE: In Lesson 23 we studied about how Satan speaks to man. God
told Adam and Eve they would die if they sinned. Satan said they
would not die but be as gods. In order to make people believe
that the dead don’t really die, Satan came back and impersonated the
dead.)
8. How much do the dead know? Do they have part in anything done in this
world? Eccl. 9:5,6
Answer: ______________________________________________________
(NOTE: This fallen church of Babylon believes the dead can come back
and so the devil has free access to bring his message into the church.)

46
9. What is there about Babylon that has reached to heaven? Rev. 18:5
Answer: ______________________________________________________
10. What is sin? 1 John 3:4
Answer: ______________________________________________________
(NOTE: Babylon, then, is a law-breaker)
11. Who is Babylon? What church has united with the state to get power?
What church has great worldly display in its churches and leaders? What
church teaches that the soul is immortal? What church says
that it changed God’s law but really is breaking the unchangeable law
every week?
Answer: The Catholic church fits each item of this description.
12. Are there any other churches following the example of the Catholic
church in the areas mentioned above? Rev. 17:5
Answer: ______________________________________________________
(NOTE: Any church which seeks power from the state to enforce her
dogmas, who attracts by outward display, and teaches soul immortality
and disregard of the fourth commandment is a part of the universal
church of Babylon, one of her daughters.)
