The “hand” (cheir) – as the possible location of the mark of the beast in John’s day – 2,000 yrs. ago (Rev. 13:16-18) – could be, what we now consider to include the:
- FINGER (Lk. 15:22)
- WRIST (Lk. 24:39; Jn. 20:25 such as where the crucifixion nails were driven through Jesus’ hands; Mt. 22:13)
- ARM (Mt. 4:6; 12:49; Jn. 11:44; 21:18; Acts 7:41; 1 Cor. 4:12; 1 Tim. 2:8; Heb. 12:12)
** That is IMPORTANT to know and that means the location of the Mark is NOT restricted to how we typically understand “hand” now! Again, those facts mean the Mark of the Beast could possible be in the finger, forearm, wrist, etc. and still be considered the hand.
The other possibility besides the hand is the forehead and will most likely be invisible to the natural eye but visible under a certain smartphone app or infrared light because of luciferase, which produce bioluminescence. Such is the Quantum Dot Tattoo to the body.
