42 USC §666(a)(13) of the U.S. Health and Human Services Code says, “(13) Recording of social security numbers in certain family matters.— Procedures requiring that the social security number of— (A) any applicant for a professional license, driver’s license, occupational license, recreational license, or marriage license be recorded on the application.”
States have criminal penalties for those who engage in those activities without a license. Therefore, those who engage in a profession, occupation, recreation, marriage or driving without confessing the social security number demanded by §666 are made criminals.
When objections on the basis of religion have been raised throughout the country, State officers are claiming that §666 is a law higher than the laws of the States and the United States that protect religion.
Why It Matters
Almighty Elohim revealed His law in the Bible. There, He disclosed that men are authorized to institute government to be a minister to us for our good. He commanded us to obey the “authority” of the government. American civil government was founded in large part by Children of God, those who believe on His name. They brought with them the heritage of knowing that all men are subject to the authority of the law revealed in the Holy Bible. Even the king, of the civil government instituted by God for our good, is subject to the law of God. Therefore, should the king exercise a power contrary to the revealed law, the king himself was a law-breaker and not acting as one with “authority”.
Notwithstanding that civil governments are as ministers of God for our good generally, the Lord revealed to us a day when those governments would become an instrument of Satan for our hurt. Revelation Chapter 13 tells of a “beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” The language is figurative (symbolic), the application is literal. It goes on to say, “The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.” The term dragon is figurative for, and literally, Satan. The terms power, throne and great authority are indeed literal, depicting that the Beast is a governmental power. Those not belonging to King of Kings, Son of God, Savior Jesus, will worship ““the dragon who gave authority to the beast…” and “they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”… authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.””
The Beast government will forsake the mantel of God’s authority and take on the pseudo authority granted by people.
Though this is a very important work, I, my family, and those who associate with us, would prefer to not have notoriety. However, it is the name on a very important case that was won in the federal court.
People requested that I provide a web portal where information about our progress could be found. Since my name has some traction, I ought to use it to its fullest in hopes of gaining victory for my posterity and Christianity while I am yet in this flesh.
That governmental Beast, upheld by the affirmation of the unregenerate world, will ultimately act exactly contrary to being a minister of God for our good. They will grant “him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.”
There is another beast who is granted power by that first “Beast.” This second beast will act with a cloak of authority in subordination to the first “Beast.” “He causes all the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast.” “He deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”
Revelation Chapter 13, verses 16-18 tell of a place of decision that is instituted by the Beast whereby men will have to chose whom they will serve. “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to (receive*) a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 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.
Chapter 14 holds, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” Chapter 15 shows that revealed to John was, “And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
There is punishment in store for those who submit to the beast, and reward for those who overcome it.
Christians have a duty to submit to the “authority” that the Lord has instituted through government that yields to His revealed law, yet are required to not to submit to the “Beast” that exercises government power under the mere color of law.
Therefore, we have the duty to uphold the law that is the authority of God; and with that authority of law, stand against the acts of those who act contrary to God’s authority, who do so under the color of the Beast’s pseudo-law.
I am in full-time Christian ministry, supported by gifts given to me and those full-time ministers of our family and ministry association. We do our ministry for no charge. We provide audio resources at no charge.
I am not opposed to selling things that I have acquired to pay for costs incurred to perform the ministry. I have written a book that costs me more than $3,000 per 1000 books and do not have the money to reproduce them. To make sure its available until I get the funds to produce another 1000, I posted it in e-book form on-line. It makes the book available and provides a small portion (about 30 cents) that can be used for various costs of sustaining life and ministry. I may also have law books and other things to sell.
(The Greek word δώσῃ dosin was translated as “receive” in King James and other translations even though it should be more reasonably translated “they should give”. Strongs concordance says the root word of that dosin is δίδωμ didomi’ which translates as ‘to give’. Commentaries note the word dosin to mean “he may give”. Different Greek texts of Revelation 13:16 have used δῶσιν which is used as “they may give”.

Some uses of the next word in the text has ‘autos’ at its root but it is in an atypical form of αὐτοῖς autois. Where it is found, the word ‘them’ or ‘their’ is proper.
The relative portion of Revelation 13:16 is:
ἵνα δώσῃ αὐτοῖς χάραγμα ἐπὶ τῆς χειρὸς αὐτῶν τῆς δεξιᾶς ἢ ἐπὶ τῶν μέτωπων αὐτῶν
The translated text is:
Hina (to or that) dosin autois (should give them or they may give) charagma epi ho cheir ho dexios (mark in the hand their the right) ay epi ton metopon autos (and in the ‘forehead’ or ‘between the eyes’ or possibly ‘after the eyes’ or ‘frontal portion of the cranium’ their).
Commentaries indicate the tone of the Greek text hints at a forceful imposition but with an element volitional acceptance. It makes me think - that may be why the King James Bible translators summed it up with the word “receive” rather than render a literal translation. I see the words used by the Lord as having both literal and figurative meaning pointing to literal and figurative application.
