Is there a mark on your forehead?

And the Lord said to him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in the midst of it. Ezekiel 9:4

Do you sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in our country? I know I do. Everytime I turn on the TV or listen to the radio or read a newspaper.  God seeks people who are disgusted by sin and wickedness. People who are no longer attached to this world and the things of this world. People who are axiously awaiting His coming.

Currently I'm reading through Ezekiel (Very cool book, by the way with lots of heavenly visions!)  and I came across this verse. It stopped me because I remembered a similar verse in Revelation.
Revelation 9:4 to be exact. (Humm, 9:4 I wonder if that means anything?)
They were told not to injure the herbage of the earth nor any green thing nor any tree, but only [to attack] such human beings as do not have the seal (mark) of God on their foreheads.

The story in Ezekiel continues with a band of angels going through Jerusalem and slaying everyone who didn't have the mark of God on their forehead. That may sound cruel, but at this point God has had enough of Israel's idolatry and wickedness. After giving them multiple times to repent, they still refused. But then that reminded me of another story in the Bible. The first passover in Egypt when the angel of death killled all the first born of the land but passed over the homes sprinkled with the blood of the sacrificial lamb. (Ah, and here's the secret to acquiring the mark--trust in the lamb who shed His blood for you!) This was after God gave Pharaoh multiple chances to repent and let the Jewish people go.

God always gives 2nd chances, doesn't He? And thirds and fourths and fifths.. etc.. and on and on. He has much more patience than I'll' ever have. Thank goodness or I may not be here now! But when His patience runs out, He must enact His justice. He can do no less. For if He wasn't a God of justice, then He wouldn't be Holy or Good. There are two sides to every coin. Most people love to talk about God's mercy and love and grace. But flip the coin over and you have His justice and his wrath. You're either on one side or the other. In God's grace, or under His judgement.

I believe God marks His own people even today. It's not visible to us in the natural world, but in the spiritual world, it's there on our foreheads for all to see. And it's bright and growing brighter as we walk closer to God. Demons growl at the sight of it. Satan shrinks from it and hates it.

He hates it so much, he created a counterfiet, like everything he does.

Also he compels all alike, both small and great, both the rich and the poor, both free and slave, to be marked with an inscription  stamped on their right hands or on their foreheads,  Rev 13:16

This is the mark of the beast. You want the first mark. You don't want the second. The first one leads to life, the second one death.

  1. With all that is going on in our country that is blatantly sinful, I now understand how the prophets would agonize over the country of Israel before they went into captivity. Our nation used to be a more holy nation--it grieves me that it has come to this. And if it grieves me, I'm sure it definitely grieves the Lord.

    1. My Name is Amber. A few years ago out of no where I got this mark on my forehead just barely above my eyes. The mark is red, I can see and others have agreed it looks like a cross. Not the red mark it's self, but with in the mark. Sometimes I can see 2 crosses. Does this mean anything? I've wondered this for a long time.

    2. Not sure what it means. I attempted suicide a while ago and had an NDE. I woke up with a scar on the inside of my arm right above my elbow. It is cross shaped. I used to be into really bad things so I assume it is something like the mark God gave Cain (Genesis 4:13-16) When I first read these verses it struck me hard. It was sort of a realization like "Hey God. Thank you for being there even when I didn't want you to be." What actually came out of my mouth: "Wow. You're good." XD

  2. Mon, Aug 23rd,
    Good Morning, MaryLu.
    Just the other day, I was saying to my son: "It's a good thing that "I-Brenda" am not God .... I would not have the patience or the tolerance to put up with all of the unrighteousness or injustices going on .... I'd just be zapping people away, right and left !"
    Back to reality: It's our great God Who is in charge and in control ... He has the patience, and He loves us beyond what we can imagine ! He is willing that NONE should perish ! Yes, he is God of -- second, third, fourth, fifth (and more) chances ! Thank the Lord for that !!!!!!!!!! He is indeed awesome, and wonderful !
    We serve a mighty God ... worthy of ALL our honour and praises !!!
    Thanks again for the reminder MaryLu -- that we have a special mark upon us now, and we are His beloved children ! Praise God from Whom all blessings flow !
    Have a great day !
    Take care, and, God Bless !

  3. I am so thankful that not only is the Lord meciful and gracious, he also disciplines us out of love. Because of his great love for us has he provided a way to receive the Mark of the Lamb.

    Society is changing "sin" to being a "mistake, choice, personal opinion, etc" We don't call a spade a spade anymore. God doesn't change, thankfully. Sin is still sin to Him and there will be consequences for those sins, for believers and unbelievers.

    Thank you for reminding us of Who's we are.

  4. I've always been facinated by the concept of God putting a mark on our foreheads! I, too, feel that we have them now, but just can't see them...but I've kind of thought that we can catch glimmers of these marks when we just suddenly really, really feel the Holy Spirit's presence in someone - I know I've felt in around other die-hard Christ followers, and I fully believe that demons (and the people they possess) can sense these marks/the Holy Spirit (we see that all throughout the Gospels and Acts). It's kind of like God's telling all the demonic inhabitants of the spiritual world, "This one is MINE. You can't hurt him/her, and he/she has power over you through My name." That's just cool! :-D

    I do think it would be a lot easier, though, if these marks were visible to everyone - that way, we could instantly know if someone is a fake, a false teacher, etc...not to mention, it would so beat cross necklaces and Christian tee shirts, to have essentially God's signature on your forehead! :-) Kind of like on TV, where people write their name on a piece of masking tape and put it on their food so no one else will take it...I like that. :-)

    1. I felt the need to confirm your post, and it certainly answered something I have been experiencing. I accepted Jesus about 15 years ago, but in June 20017, I was baptized in the Holy Spirit, by Fire, or slayed as some may say. This was nothing I actually was familiar with or even thought about. But when it happen I received prophecy and tongues. Prior to this I really never any thought towards tongues, and believed it was something that just happened in Pentecost, but I didn't not believe it still happened today, it's just that I have never been exposed to it. Well everything has changed for me since this moment, there is no no doubt in me regarding all contents of the Bible and the awesome power of God. Anyhow, one of the many things I experience now is a feeling in the center of my forehead just above my eyes. Sometimes, its a tingle, other times, it feels like something is pressing down on that spot, and sometimes the pressure increases, so much it radiates across my head. I don't known anyone at this time who experiences this, so I pray the anyone who can relate to this experience reads this message and finds comfort.

      May you feel God's daily blessings.

    God bless you, MaryLu, for listening to our Heavenly Father and passing on this blog. I have read through the Bible almost 10 times and I never noticed those verses having the same chapter and verse. I believe that we have His mark on our foreheads and that whenever we are walking with the Lord, it acts as an invisible shield; nothing and no one can penetrate it, except our Lord. Thanks, MaryLu, for your words. (given by God)

  6. Thank you for your comments, ladies! I'm so glad this post blessed you. For me, it's just nice to know that I'm marked for God. Satan and his angels can't touch me unless God allows them to for a season. Protected, loved. Ah, how wonderful our heavenly Father is! If only people could see, could experience His love, they'd never go back. I, too, would like to be able to weed out the Christians from the unbelievers pretending to be Christians, but God has given us a Spirit of discernment for that purpose. We need to exercise it so it can get stronger. Yes, the USA is sliding down to Gomorah pretty fast. It grieves me but it also makes me anxious for the Kings of Kings to return and set up His kingdom.! Blessings all!

    Hi, I was so excited to read that thire are so many other that love God and his loveing son Jesus. How ever we all need to remember that in the Bible it say that God dose not want even one to pasrish. I feel it up to all of us to win as many people to God as we can. We are all the same in our Lord Eyes.

    Sometime we don't know what another person is going thur or what has happen in thire life. Let all pray for each other, friend,familys and the whole world.

    God Bless us all thur his loving son Jesus.

  9. I would like to suggest something that it would appear nobody else has thought of in regards to currency(and the mark of the beast 666) a blatant attempt to get it past everyone and in plain sight. There is 6 denominations (ones,fives,tens,twenties,fifties and one hundreds)for a total of 6. Then there is 6 forms of payment (Cash,Coins,Debit,Checks,Credit Card and Money order) for a total of 6. Then there is 6 watermarks ( on the five,ten,twenty,fifty and one hundred) for a total of 6....666...but wait there is more.Each new bill(with water mark(not including the old one dollar)has the water mark but standard checks get water marks as well which can be seen by holding to a bright light, then there is the mark on the forehead....each new bill held in the light clearly shows the word trust written backwards on each presidents forehead. No one will conduct commerce without the mark and guess what it's in the hand daily(Usually right hand)!!! Money is the root of all Evil

    1. That's not what the Bible says...it says the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. When someone uses a credit card, they don't hold it up to their forehead..nor do they when ordering online.

  11. Very interesting post about money.. I hadn't thought about that before...

    And Lion and lamb, I've never heard of anyone having a similar experience.... I hope someone who reads this can help you. Are you Jewish? I believe Revelations states that the 144,000 will be Jews.

      My name is Queen Valarine. Mackey as ND I have my Facebook page as Valarine.Mackey@facebook.com. There you will find my pictures of the Cross, the Seal of God on my forhead. It is very visible and it is growing more pronounced as the writer says. I am a born-again believer, baptized with the in filling of the Holy Ghost and I speak in tongues as the scripture says. If you would like to see a modern day believer who wears the Seal of God, I am one.

  12. Yahweh never loses patience with people . The suffering we see in the world today is what mankind had brought upon himself. There are 2 marks as their are 2 kingdoms. The mark of Yahweh the Creator is h
    His Feast Days and Sabbaths kept at His House and the mark of the Beasy is Sunday and pagan holiday worship. There is a place of protection in these last days. Learn about it here www.Yahweh.com

  14. I have a Natural Cross centered on my Forehead , to the left and right of this are 2 triangles sometimes 4 triangles of precise proportions, 2 are continually there and 2 more are coming and going.
    These appeared on my forehead for no reason. They are as folds in the skin, but the folds are not the natural folds in relation to sleeping compression of the skin or facial or muscular pulling which run at counter angles to these specific shapes. The strange thing is that these are PRECISE Triangles. and the cross is DEEP. These folds are not appearing to be connected to the natural folds of my face. I get people really looking at me now some saying this is special or rare. I really not sure what to think and wear a hat to cover up. I can heal people by touch but dont anymore as it generates much attention. I dont need to work, money comes to me. I lack for nothing and live comfortably without specific income or seeking it. I simply ask and recieve. I dont really understand it and tend to shy away from public areas. All thoughts welcomed!..

    1. Why would you ever think it is the interment of death? God turned his back on the world at that time. Because he couldn't bear seeing his son on that. Why on would you thing that is the sign. Because the Churches also broadcast the killing item. It is, nothing less. If he was killed in now day and age. It would be a syringe or a electric shock or a gas colander. Jesus was not the only one killed that way. PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID. I have died twice. and been brought back. Trust me. Stop the Crosses

  17. I love my Abba( God the Father) so much with all my heart, I often pray for him to have joy, happiness, and to receive love, obedience, and respect from all of his children, and for all of his children to be redeemed through Christ Jesus. I have a question though, I was born with an X in the middle of my fore head between my eyes, and as I got older it faded, and as it did an X appeared on the left side of my back. Could this have any meaning?

  19. It looks like there's a cross on my forehead. I don't know how to explain it, but it's the first time I've even seen it. I'm 30... it kind of looks like a shadow. Not dark like ashes, but a shadow and sometimes it looks like a reflective cross.. it's about 2 inches tall... right between my eyebrows. I don't know where it came from or if I'm going crazy or weird..

  21. Recently I got a book " HIS MARKS ON ME" by Dr. K.K.Mathew, the rarest book of all times. The book presents the imprints (a total of 22 imprints) of divine marks on his body, a cross on his forehead, an angel on the thump, dove, flying with cross etc. The book also reveals the spiritual growth of Dr. Mathew. Dr. Mathew is a cardiologist based at Kerala State, India.

  24. Ok I have the mark on my forehead, removed at soon after birth. I have the scare. and I don't judge. Not my job, I love God. And I do obey. I love God, you may ask what religion. Nil. Christian maybe, but I don't pray directly to Jesus. Just like when he prayed, he didn't pray to himself. He pray to his father and the only God. I feel a assimilation to the Jewish religion. and later married a Jew.The lord gives me strength, I am disabled and carry out my life like I am not. Let it be.
