Marks of the Beast



Uth Stuph Creative Resources is the largest Christian T-shirt design and custom apparel screen printing company for Christian youth ministries and church youth groups in the United States. Although Uth Stuph advertises itself as a "Christian" company, its online catalogue advertises 600+ trendy designs for apparel which include not a few occult symbols. Many designs incorporate a number of occult symbols, thereby magnifying the demonic power of the symbols.

Uth Stuph's Mission Statement reads as follows:

"To be the premier resource provider by creatively communicating Christ through excellence in design, products, and customer care. Core Values: Christ defines our perspective. Principal (sic): When we put Christ first in business and in our lives, all decisions and circumstances are measured by His example. Today Uth Stuph serves over 3,000 ministries from across the US, with Custom Design and Apparel Imprinting… Our goal is simply to make you look good, and to help promote the kingdom of God."
In stark contrast to the stated mission of Uth Stuph is the Holy Bible, which states that God cannot be perceived and must not be represented through art, nor is He served through artistic representations of His Person:
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them. Exodus 20:4,5

Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent… Acts 17:29

Albert Pike wrote in Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry that the artistic representations (symbols) which are revered by the uninitiated are in fact "idols" which represent occult teachings that are understood by high level adepts (initiates of the Luciferian mysteries):
“The symbols of the wise always become the idols of the ignorant multitude. What the Chiefs of the Order really believed and taught, is indicated to the Adepts by the hints contained in the high Degrees of Free-Masonry, and by the symbols which only the Adepts understand.” 1.
According to Cutting Edge Ministries, the power of occult symbols does not dissipate, but increases, when the uninitiated remain ignorant of their esoteric meaning.
    "Occultists the world over believe that, once a symbol is created, it acquires power of its own, and more power is generated when such symbol(s) are created without the profane [uninitiated] knowing about it. And, the greatest power of all is created in the symbol(s) if the uninitiated NEVER discover that the symbol exists...
    "The occultist firmly believes that a symbol or a set of symbols possesses inherent power once they are created. Therefore, occultic doctrine teaches that these Satanic symbols would act as a powerful electric-type grid once they were set in place." 2.
The demonic power of such symbols would be especially potent when Christians purchase and display such artistic representations of God in violation of Scripture. Could such disobedience  account to some degree for the 'strange god' which apostate Christendom worships in our day?
"The 'god' of this twentieth century no more resembles the Supreme Sovereign of Holy Writ than does the dim flickering of a candle the glory of the midday sun. The 'god' who is now talked about in the average pulpit, spoken of in the ordinary Sunday School, mentioned in much of the religious literature of the day, and preached in most of the so-called Bible Conferences is the figment of human imagination, an invention of maudlin sentimentality. The heathen outside the pale of Christendom form 'gods' out of wood and stone, while the millions of heathen inside Christendom manufacture a 'god' out of their own carnal mind. In reality, they are but atheists, for there is no possible alternative between an absolute supreme God, and no God at all. A 'god' whose will is resisted, whose designs are frustrated, whose purpose is checkmated possesses no title to Deity, and so far from being a fit object of worship, merits naught but contempt." 3.
The "god" of the United States, according to the Declaration of Independence, is "Nature's God" -- an esoteric reference to Pan, the god who encompasses all things thereby making all things sacred and divine.  Predictably, "At least fifty out of the fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence, including John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson were Freemasons." 4.

In his article, Sects Symbolism and the Mark of the Beast, Ray Novosel explains the meaning of Pan as the first "principle of nature".  Pantheism exalts man, as the procreator, to the level of God, the Creator:

   "The fundamental doctrine of magic (more correctly, magick) is phallicism. New life is created by the act of generation (the argument runs): therefore the life force is generated by the sexual forces, the union of male and female elements. As represented by the two opposing equilateral triangles...
    "The phallic God is therefore hermaphroditic or bi-sexual. The sexual organs are considered sacred, while the rites and rituals are designed to liberate the passions and the natural instincts from the control of (wait for it) reason. The novice must denounce as fraud the existence of a moral order, together with that of its creator. This is the exact reverse of what the Bible stands for.
    "The creation of the universe (according to the phallic adepts) is the work of the hermaphrodite god. The universe was not created but procreated or engendered by him in successive stages. The god himself is supposed to have been the original and unique emanation of the divine substance of which all things are made. In this role the god is known as Pan, the first principle of nature.  Thus man is placed on a par with his creator: both are divine and immortal; man therefore creates when he procreates."
In Morals and Dogma, Albert Pike reveals Pan's real identity as Lucifer:
"The not a Person, but a Force..., which presides over the physical generation, under the mythological and horned form of the God PAN; thence came the he-goat of the Sabbat, brother of the Ancient Serpent, and the Lightbearer or Phosphor, of which the poets have made the false Lucifer of the legend." 5.
Lucifer's history is no legend, as Albert Pike would like the Masons to believe, but is recorded in the King James Bible, which identifies him as the leader of the fallen angels who rebelled against God and were cast out of heaven. Lucifer is the prototype of the Freemasons who would usurp the place of God and overthrow His decreed order; he is also prototypical of their eternal damnation:
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou has said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. Isaiah 14:12-16
Lucifer's reference to "sitting on the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north" is the subject of another report, The Lost Tribe of Dan -- which was the northernmost tribe that led Israel into idolatry, and specifically to worship the Nature god, Pan.  Madame H.P. Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society, wrote in The Theosophical Glossary that, contrary to popular belief, pantheism is alive and well:
"There is a well-known pious legend which has been current in the Christian world ever since the day of Tiberias, to the effect that the 'great god Pan is dead'. But people are greatly mistaken in this; neither nature nor any of her Forces can ever die. A few of these may be left unused, and being forgotten lie dormant for long centuries. But no sooner are the proper conditions furnished than they awake to act again with tenfold power." 6.
Although professing Christendom would never suspect they are worshiping the Theosophical god of Nature, each week multitudes of church goers who sing generic praise songs and listen to sermons void of doctrinal content are in effect worshiping PAN -- a god of their own carnal mind who has no title to deity. Thus would Lucifer hide his identity in the democratic environment of religious pluralism envisioned by our Masonic Founding Fathers.  Rodney Stark, a professor of sociology and comparative religion at the University of Washington, describes the the U.S. as a religious superstore where prospective buyers shop according to "the rational choice theory of religion."
"Religious beliefs and practices make up the product that is on sale in the market, and current and potential followers are the consumers. In a free-market religious economy there is a healthy abundance of choice (religious pluralism), which leads naturally to vigorous competition and efficient supply (new and old religious movements). The more competition there is, the higher the level of consumption." 7.

Soon Lucifer, in the guise of PAN (religious pluralism, tolerance, ecumenical unity and spiritual revival), will move to seal his worshipers across the religious spectrum with a mark, as foretold in Revelation 13. Once sealed with the mark of the Beast (Lucifer), a person's eternal destiny in the lake of fire will also be sealed. (Rev. 14:10,11)

There is so much speculation that the Mark of the Beast will be an implantable microchip that to suggest otherwise seems unthinkable.  However, the Tribulation saints must not allow current events or the ubiquitous propagandists to interpret Scripture for them, but must prayerfully and diligently ascertain for themselves what the Bible has to say about the Mark of the Beast. Although the implantable microchip may be used to track and control people during the Tribulation, there are four important sources which prove the computer chip does not fulfill the Scriptural requirements for the Mark of the Beast.

1.    The Textus Receptus
The King James Version, although far superior to modern versions, does not always follow the Textus Receptus, the Received Greek Text of the New Testament.  The verses pertaining to the mark of the beast are different in each. The Received Text (Textus Receptus) states that the Mark of the Beast will be placed ON, not IN, the right hand or the forehead.  Our position is that the Textus Receptus was verbally inspired by God and is the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men.  The George Ricker Berry Interlinear Greek-English New Testament (Textus Receptus) 8., which uses the Greek Text of Stephens (1550), reads as follows in the three verses pertaining to the Mark of the Beast:
Rev. 13:16-18: And it causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bondmen, that it should give them a mark ON their right hand, or ON their foreheads; and that no one should be able to buy or to sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of its name. Here wisdom is. He who has understanding let him count the number of the beast: for it is a man's number; and its number is 666. (TR)

Rev. 14:9-10: And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If anyone does homage to the beast and its image, and receives a mark ON his forehead, or UPON his hand, also he shall drink of the wine of the fury of God, which is mixed undiluted in the cup of his wrath; and he shall be tormented in fire and brimstone, before the holy angels, and before the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment goes up to ages of ages: and they have no respite day and night, who do homage to the beast and his image, and if anyone receives the mark of its name. (TR)

Rev. 20:4: And I saw thrones; and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them; and the souls of those beheaded on account of the testimony of Jesus, and on account of the word of God, and those who did not do homage to the beast, nor his image, and did not receive the mark UPON their forehead, and UPON their hand; and they lived and reigned with Christ the thousand years. (TR)

In the King James Version, in the identical phrase in Revelation 20:4 pertaining to the mark on the forehead, the KJV follows the Textus Receptus: 

"And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark UPON their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." (KJV)

Scrivener's Interlinear Greek-English New Testament (1894), which uses the Beza Greek Text, translates the Greek word "epi" as "on" or "upon":

(Greek/English Interlinear (tr) NT) Revelation 13:16 kai <2532> {AND} poiei <4160> (5719) {IT CAUSES} pantaV <3956> {ALL,} touV <3588> {THE} mikrouV <3398> {SMALL} kai <2532> {AND} touV <3588> {THE} megalouV <3173> {GREAT,} kai <2532> {AND} touV <3588> {THE} plousiouV <4145> {RICH} kai <2532> {AND} touV <3588> {THE} ptwcouV <4434> {POOR,} kai <2532> {AND} touV <3588> {THE} eleuqerouV <1658> {FREE} kai <2532> {AND} touV <3588> {THE} doulouV <1401> {BONDMEN,} ina <2443> {THAT} dwsh <1325> (5661) {IT SHOULD GIVE} autoiV <846> {THEM} caragma <5480> {A MARK} epi <1909> thV <3588> {ON} ceiroV <5495> {HAND} autwn <846> thV <3588> {THEIR} dexiaV <1188> {RIGHT,} h <2228> {OR} epi <1909> twn <3588> {ON} metwpwn <3359> {FOREHEADS} autwn <846> {THEIR;}

Translation of the Greek preposition "epi" is determined by its syntax. Although "epi" in some grammatical contexts may be translated "in," that is not possible in these verses because the Greek article “the” before the noun “hand” in the prepositional phrase “in the hand” renders “hand” in the accusative case. According to Wesley Perschbacher’s New Analytical Greek Lexicon (#1909), “‘epi’,...with the acc., upon”. Learn New Testament Greek by John H. Dobson, states that "epi" means “on, on top of” (“Prepositions followed by an accusative case”, p. 186). In other words, when the preposition ‘epi’ is present with a noun in the accusative case, its meaning is "upon, on." Had God meant "in the hand" or "in the forehead," He would have used a different Greek word - "en" (Cf. Strong's Concordance #1909 and #1722).

There is yet another source which confirms that the Mark is placed ON, not IN, the hand or forehead:

2.    Strong's Concordance
The Greek word for "mark" in all of the above verses is "charagma". Strong's Concordance defines "charagma" as a "stamp" that is branded, imprinted or engraved ON the individual's forehead or hand (rather than implanted in the skin).
5480 charagma {khar'-ag-mah}
 from the same as 5482: TDNT - 9:416,1308; n n

AV - mark 8, graven 1; 9

1) a stamp, an imprinted mark
   1a) of the mark stamped ON the forehead or the right hand as the badge of the followers of the Antichrist
   1b) the mark branded UPON horses
   2) thing carved, sculpture, graven work
   2a) of idolatrous images

3.   Biblical precedents

It is also important to look at precedents in the Scriptures where a visible mark was given to people, such as the mark of Cain and the mark placed on the foreheads of the men of Jerusalem:

And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.” (Gen. 4:15)

“And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.” (Ezek. 9:4)

There is yet a another consideration which should be taken into account:

4.      Bible Prophecy

The book of Revelation places compulsory reception of the Mark of the Beast in chapter 13, after the seven seal judgments and seven trumpet judgments have taken place.  By the time the Mark of the Beast becomes mandatory on a global scale, over one half of the earth will have been decimated, including the current systems of advanced technology that are gearing up for the microchip implant.

Revelation 11:18 refers to nations which have destroyed the earth: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged...and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.  The report, Heeding Bible Prophecy: Understanding the Book of Revelation, reveals that the occult plan for the New Age is to go *back to the future* -- to revert mankind to the pre-flood days of Noah and ultimately to the Garden of Eden.

The rationale (or rather irrationale!) for destroying the earth is the Gnostic belief that the world was created by an evil Demiurge and that this material world is inherently evil.  In order for man to transcend matter and attain to godhood, the material world must be annihilated. We are not making this up. Many statements by New Agers indicate an irrational plan to destroy the planet.

For example, Richard Kirby wrote in The Mission of Mysticism:

"Christians know that a man must die to himself before he born again in spirit. It may well be that mankind as a whole must be crucified, even unto death, before coming into its inheritance... Christians can say with Teilhard de Chardin, that death itself is beneficent, the only way to grow beyond forms which have served their limited purpose..., but with the serious and the worried, they look upon the possible extermination of the human race secure in the knowledge that it could be but a prelude to the resurrection of the species." 9.
More evidence of of the New Age Plan to sacrifice mankind to Lucifer is presented in: A Sacred Assembly, specifically in part 2, The Luciferic Initiation.

During the first half of the Tribulation period, the microchip implant will serve the ends of the New World Order as a counterfeit mark of the beast. To further deceive the masses, a *false* Antichrist and *false* False Prophet will also be staged and judged at mid-Tribulation by the *real* Antichrist, who poses as *The Christ.*

At mid-Tribulation, after approximately one half of the world has been devastated, mankind will be forced to revert to a system of barter and exchange which, even now, appears to be in the planning stages. 10.  The true mark of the beast--the 6-pointed star and other variations of the 666 motif--will be tattooed upon those who give their allegiance to Satan at the Luciferic initiation.

Tattoos are an ancient tradition of pagan initiation rites. The tattoo bonds the initiate with the entity symbolized by the tattoo and enables him to communicate with that demonic power. The meaning and function of tattoos in initiation rites are explained in Chevalier's Dictionary of Symbols, which defines the tattoo as "the permanent mark of that initiation."

"In some pictures of a tattooed man we are faced by a permanent prayer to and identification with the heavenly powers, at the same time as a basic means of communication with them. Such is the most generalized meaning of tattooing bestowed in consequence of a rite of initiation which allows this communication to take place. At the same time, this initiation is a rite of admission into a social group and the tattoo is the permanent mark of that initiation, the badge of the tribe.

"All in all, tattooing belongs among symbols of identification and is interfused with all their magic and mystic potency. Identification always carries a double meaning: it tends to invest the individual concerned with the properties and strength of the creature or thing to which that person is assimilated and, at the same time, to immunize the latter against its potential power to cause harm. This is why tattoos depict dangerous creatures such as serpents or scorpions, or animals which are symbols of fertility, such as bulls or of power, such as lions, and so on. Identification also carries a sense of surrender or even of consecration to whatever the tattoo symbolically depicts. It then becomes a badge of fealty." 11.

Like a wedding band which represents an indissoluble union of two people, the initiate's tattoo "becomes a badge of fealty" to the "creature or thing to which that person is assimilated".  Since Lucifer aspires to be "like God", in his pride he will orchestrate a counterfeit fulfillment of the Bible prophecies concerning Jesus Christ. The terminology used in the Dictionary of Symbols to describe the initiation tattoo suggests that Lucifer will bond his followers to himself in a sacred marriage rite --- the Satanic equivalent of the Marriage of the Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ, to His Bride.
Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. Rev. 19:7

In the unlikely event that modern technology is still functioning globally come mid-Tribulation, when the Mark of the Beast is required for buying and selling, this mark will still be a tattoo or brand that is imprinted ON the skin rather than an implant IN the skin.  Plans for such a tattoo have been registered with the The U.S. Department of Commerce Patent and Trademark Office which currently posts an "abstract for a Method for verifying human identity during electronic sale transactions".

"A method is presented for facilitating sales transactions by electronic media. A bar code or a design is tattooed on an individual. Before the sales transaction can be consummated, the tattoo is scanned with a scanner. Characteristics about the scanned tattoo are compared to characteristics about other tattoos stored on a computer database in order to verify the identity of the buyer. Once verified, the seller may be authorized to debit the buyer's electronic bank account in order to consummate the transaction. The seller's electronic bank account may be similarly updated... The tattoo itself can be of any convenient shape or size. The invention works best when the tattoo is unique because no other means of identification are necessary. Although an invisible ink could be used, the invention would work equally well with a tattoo that is visible to the human eye..." 12.
Perhaps anticipating this technology, Uth Stuph Creative Resources -- the premier Christian T-shirt design and custom apparel screen printing company for Christian youth ministries and church youth groups in the United States -- has already designed a bar code logo with three hexagons (666) and a six-pointed star! 13.

Revelation 13:16 states that the Mark of the Beast will be mandatory for "all, both small and great." And it causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bondmen, that it should give them a mark ON their right hand, or ON their foreheads...  Sadly, children will not be spared from receiving the mark - nor will adolescents.

The fact is that many pseudo-Christian organizations are even now preparing young people to receive the mark of the Beast. Tattoos are all the rage among unsaved teenagers and, tragically, they are even becoming popular among Christian youth groups -- despite God's prohibition in Leviticus 19:28: Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

The logos presented on the Uth Stuph web site incorporate so much occult symbolism along with Christian themes that many would be ideal as tattoos or marks of the Beast for the masses of apostate Christendom. These occult logos could easily be converted to tattoos that would fulfill the requirement to display the name, number or mark (symbol) of the Beast.

Conspicuously absent in the Uth Stuph offerings is mention of Jesus Christ. There are only references to "Christ", an entity of the generic variety that will be peddled to the masses during the Tribulation period.  Pantheism has been custom designed not just for Satanists and liberal Methodist goddess worshipers, but comes in Evangelical and Charismatic packages as well.

At mid-Tribulation, everyone will be required to get a tattoo in order to buy or sell. We project that, in the free market economies, there will be a large selection of designer tattoos reflecting the esoteric concepts of the *new religious movements* (cults) that are now becoming respectable.  Tattoos will become fashion statements and a new class of tattoo artists will become wealthy offering - for a price - occult logos worn by the rich and famous.

Designer tattoos will also generate a lot of business from the worldly Laodicean Church which, having no doctrinal criteria for matters of faith and practice, has allowed the world system to infiltrate and control their churches.  For these apostates, there will likely be a selection of more subtly occult designs mixed with Christian terminology, if they don't like the highly occultic symbols worn by New Agers.  Yea, designer tattoos will become ever more popular as state-sponsored 501(c)(3) churches -- many of which are led by Generation-X pastors, who are guided by popular opinion and driven by market demand -- become centers of devil worship in the global religious system.

And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.  Rev. 9:20,21
A Christian artist, Lynn Kistler, first alerted us to Uth Stuph Creative Resources and did some preliminary research on their logos. It seems the youth group that the Kistler's teenage children formerly attended was promoting this esoteric merchandise along with hard rock music groups such as Payable on Death.

P.O.D.'s logo, which is displayed on their web site, is the occult triquetra (aka triskele) -- an artistic representation of 666, which was nearly identical to the logo of Live the Call. *Live the Call* was the official follow-up organization for *The Call, D.C.*, the September 2000 event which launched The Elijah Revolution, which officially began mobilizing Christian youth as *Joel's Army*.





Very similar in design is the logo for Evangelical Ministries to New Religions (EMNR), supposedly a cult-watchdog but in reality a cult apology network.  In other words, EMNR's *ministry* is to reimage cults as respectable; they are no longer cults, with the implication of occultism and other negative connotations, but *new religions.*  Members of EMNR are encouraged to display the occultic EMNR logo:

"In addition to the benefits inherent in the stated purpose, members receive a quarterly email newsletter, a free subscriptions to The Watchman Expositor magazine, participation in our annual summit conference, discounts to our annual conference and on other items made available through cooperating organizations, and authorization to display the EMNR logo on your letterhead or products to indicate to others your cooperation and accountability with other ministries." 14.
To say that ENNR's Doctrinal Statement is revealing would be an understatement:

"Evangelical Ministries to New Religions adheres to the doctrinal standards and practices as set forth in the Lausanne Covenant, the Manila Manifesto and the Amsterdam Affirmations. The Lausanne Covenant was ratified at the International Congress on World Evangelization, held in Lausanne, Switzerland, in July 1974." 15.
According to the Apologetics Index, EMNR was actually founded to implement the Lausanne Covenant:
“Founded in 1982 as a fellowship of evangelical Christian ministries in North America to the cults and new religions. EMNR was born in an effort to practically implement Affirmation 7 of the Lausanne Covenant: ‘We urge the development of regional and functional cooperation for the furtherance of the Church's mission, for strategic planning, for mutual encouragement, and for the sharing of resources and experience.’” 16.
The Lausanne Consultation on World Evangelism (LCWE) is the subject of The World Christian Movement 17. which explains how the ecumenical movement developed before the first Lausanne Consultation convened in 1974 under the leadership of Billy Graham.  However, there is some vital information missing from this expose that is available in the Billy Graham Center archives.

Firstly, there is no mention in WCM of the Evangelical Alliance, founded in 1846, which was revived as the World Evangelical Fellowship in 1951 and reverted to the World Evangelical Alliance in 2001. Nor does WCM inform the reader that Anglican leader and theologian, John Stott "provided a biblical outline of the threefold purpose of WEF [and] later drafted the historic Lausanne Covenant, 1974." as stated by W. Harold Fuller, vice-chair of the WEF International Council in his article, "From the Evangelical Alliance to the World Evangelical Fellowship." 18.

Since the reader of WCM is never informed that the Evangelical Alliance/WEF is the source of Lausanne, it would never come to his/her attention that the Evangelical Alliance was founded at the United Grand Lodge of England headquarters at Freemason Hall, London.  This is a huge fact which is documented in several archived resources at the World Evangelical Fellowship and the Billy Graham Center.  Harold Fuller's article documented Freemason Hall as the venue of EA's founding in a footnote.  David Howard, former International Director of the World Evangelical Fellowship, wrote in "The Dream That Would Not Die: The birth and growth of the World Evangelical Fellowship 1846-1986":

“It was an impressive sight. 800 Christians, who had gathered in Freemason's Hall, Great Queen Street, London, in August, 1846, were standing to shake hands and sing the Doxology. They had just voted to establish what has been called 'a new thing in Church history--a definite organization for the expression of unity amongst Christian individuals belonging to different churches… They called it 'The Evangelical Alliance…'" 19.
The United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) is the headquarters of International Freemasonry. Little wonder that the World Evangelical Alliance, which today represents 420 million evangelical Christians in 127 nations, also serves as a non-governmental organization (NGO) in Special Consultative Status with UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

Why is the real source of Lausanne not correctly identified by Al Dager in The World Christian Movement?  And why was Jewel van der Merwe an EMNR Conference speaker in 1994 and 1996?  Dave Hunt also spoke at the 1996 EMNR Conference.  Arnold Fructenbaum, director of Ariel Ministries, served as coordinator of the Lausanne Consolation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE) for seven years. Sandy Simpson of Deception in the Church (DITC) is a full-time missionary with Liebenzell Missions, a member of the Lausanne-connected Interdenominational Foreign Mission Association (IFMA). The Evangelical Alliance Mission and U.S. Center for World Mission are also members of IFMA.  To see the connections of many so-called discernment ministries with the Lausanne Movement, check out The New Age Ties of the Discernment and Apologetics Ministries.  These connections explain why many of the organizations that should be exposing the Mark of the Beast are instead promoting it.

Returning to Uth Stuph...


In the sections of this report which follow are many examples of the more occultic logos marketed by Uth Stuph Creative Resources. For most of these logos, the esoteric interpretations are explained with relevant statements from occult sources. Remember, Uth Stuph is “the premier resource provider” of designs that “creatively communicate Christ” for Christian youth ministries.  Christian parents should wonder what "Christ" is communicated by pyramids, pentagrams, hexagons, Tau crosses and phoenixes, to name a few of the rather blatantly occult symbols which are displayed on the apparel sold to Christian youth by Uth Stuph.

The occult "underground" that is about to surface globally as the occult "establishment" does not want Christians to discover that the Mark of the Beast is an OCCULT SYMBOL.  To this end, they have strategized well in advance to brainwash the Christian community that the Mark will be a microchip implant.  However, the bottom line is this: the chip implant does not fit the Scriptural parameters for this mark. What must the Christian do when the popular propaganda contradicts the Word of God? "Let him that hath understanding" (Rev. 13:18) allow God to have the final Word on the subject.

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. I Cor. 2:12,13

And it causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bondmen, that it should give them a mark {charagma} ON their right hand, or ON their foreheads; and that no one should be able to buy or to sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of its name. Here wisdom is. He who has understanding let him count the number of the beast: for it is a man's number; and its number is 666. Rev. 13:16-18

A few comments from Lynn Kistler about the Uth Stuph logos found in Designer Marks Part 1:
Lets face it, there are only so many ways to design, so many shapes to work with. However, the pentagram and especially the hexagram are used a LOT by UPH STUPH.

Superman is a big theme (also using an "S" = "Set"?).  Also waves in use with a 3's, The 3rd Wave? (3 is used in artistic arrangement).  The Earth  Tourist with the cross marked on the forehead is UNBELIEVABLE and goes with the alien theme.  Also the 3 hexagrams with the bar code. And backwards writing.

When I think of the "odds" that certain things "stand out" and are used more often (example T, S, X with 26 letters to choose from), I can't help but "feel" something is happening here.  Then the 666's start popping out.

I also noticed "swirls." Cathy Burns, Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated 20., p. 268, displays a coven of witches worshiping Lucifer who is represented by a swirling white light.  Cupid (the god, Eros) is found in the love section (nothing "strange" about that?). Uth Stuph Creative Resources uses a lot of crosses in circles (Knights Templar symbol) though not as direct as the pictures in Burns' book (p. 349).

When one takes each Uth Stuph picture alone, it looks like I am being nit picky.  But when you look at them as a whole, there is a "spirit/attitude" and agenda here that doesn't seem right.  There are some that are REALLY BAD, but most are very subtle.  Like I said previously, art can only use so many colors and shapes and the number 3 gives good balance, but then it also is more subtle and less apt for people to evaluate easily.

Also, anything with a flag/patriotic theme "legitimately" hides a ton of symbols (pentagram, etc.)  Here and there, there are some that are BLATANTLY obvious to those familiar with occult symbols and this validates (in my mind) scrutinizing the others further, even though to some extent I may be stretching things.

I know that they are going with what is "popular" and perhaps aren't aware just how "popular" the occult is - BUT, what is popular is a lot of Satanic symbols.  I want to believe they are doing this in ignorance, but I guess it must be willful ignorance to some extent.
