There are several places, where the KJV is talking of something, being put or written in or on somebody’s forehead.

At first sight this reads a bit strange, if you are German and have to translate that. In English it might even be accepted or nothing to really think about. But today I found the way to deeply understand this phrase in context of the Bible and want to share this insight with you, because it makes translating it in the right way possible - at least into German.

The key to understand, what it means, if something is written in the forehead of somebody, I found in Revelation Chapter 2, Verse 17:

“Hee that hath an eare, let him heare what the Spirit saith unto the Churches. To him that overcommeth will I give to eate of the hidden Manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth, saving hee that receiveth it.“

If you “write in a stone” you engrave it. You remove surface material where the letters shall appear. In this verse the stone is then handed to somebody and only the receiver “knows” what the engravement says (the new name). This combination of the engravement in the stone with knowledge, even important knowledge (because it saves the receiver - because it’s the new name of him, written in the Book of Life - I guess).

In German you can call the engravement of letters in something “Prägung” (embossing) oder besser “Einprägung” (imprinting). A “Prägung” gives something or somebody a meaning or a purpose, while “Einprägung” also means to memorize something. This enables to really understand what the following verses in Revelation talk about:

Kapitel 7 - Die Anzahl der gesiegelten Verse 3

Kapitel 9 - Sieben Engel blasen Trompeten Verse 4

Kapitel 13 - Satan vertrieben; Satans Raserei Verse 16

Kapitel 14 - Das Lamm erschlagen; Ein neues Lied Verse 1

Kapitel 20 - Das scharfe Schwert; Satan befreit Verse 4

Kapitel 22 - Das Wasser des Lebens wird frei angeboten Verse 4

When it is about the seal of God in the foreheads of believers, we accept it easily. But what about the mark of the Beast? How can something be either out in the right hand or in the forehead of somebody?

The mark of the Beast is even a further hint to what is really going on.

What, if “putting something into somebody’s forehead” would mean to make the receiver memorize something very reliable and steady? Like something you need to remember “no matter what”? Like e.g. a code or a number that you absolutely need to buy or sell…
Like the passcode to your credit card or an ID card, which is required to identify you as the legal owner of that card. And what, if the alternative to memorize this passcode is to get it implanted in your hand, e.g. as an RFID-chip, so that you don’t need to memorize it, but can still be identified as the legal owner of that credit or ID card?

This suddenly give sense to the alternative between the “Mark in the right hand” and “mark in the forehead”. The mark is a kind of information, that you either can memorize or store in an RFID-chip.

And this way even the “number of his name is 666” (which is allegedly part of the mark) may be connected to this information, e.g. as part of the checksum-system used for this mark.

So putting or writing something in somebody’s forehead means to store information in the brain of that person. To imprint this information into the person’s brain.

Let’s look at the “forehead” verses in more detail:

Kapitel 7 - Die Anzahl der gesiegelten Verse 3

Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till wee have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

God and his Angels want to “seal” their servants in their foreheads.

A seal is a sign that refers to a King or Emporer. It marks e.g. a letter as coming from the owner of the seal. Something or someone, that is “sealed” is recognizable to belong to the issuer of that seal and this seal can be perceived by others. So, if somebody is sealed by God or his Angels, others will recognize him as belonging to God. According to this verse this “sealing” takes place in the forehead. As explained above, putting something “in” the forehead means to put information to his or her mind. And in this case in a way, that other people can perceive it.

A Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ, a child of God will behave and act according to the Word of God. This makes that human distinguishable from heathen or pagans. Now it’s understandable what is going on in this verse. The hundred and forty four thousand virgins (all of them Jews) get sealed in their foreheads by receiving Jesus Christ in their mind.

 

Kapitel 9 - Sieben Engel blasen Trompeten Verse 4

And it was commaunded them that they should not hurt the grasse of the earth, neither any greene thing, neither any tree: but only those men which have not the seale of God in their foreheads.

The “seal in the forehead” marks Gods children and protects them from Gods wrath. The sealed have God in their mind and are different from those not having it or have the mark of the beast even (see below).

 

Kapitel 13 - Satan vertrieben; Satans Raserei Verse 16

And he causeth all, both smal and great rich and poore, free and bond, +to receive a marke in their right hand, or in their foreheads:[+Gr. to give.]

Here is the main description that shows, there has top be a logical connection between the mark “in the hand” or “in the forehead”.

You need to remember your PIN (that identifies you as a member in the system of the beast) to be able to buy or sell (you have to have it in your forehead, you mind or memory) or you can receive the RFID-Cip in your hand, so you are not in danger to forget your Beast-PIN.

 

Kapitel 14 - Das Lamm erschlagen; Ein neues Lied Verse 1

And I looked, and loe, a Lambe stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundreth fourty and foure thousand, having his Fathers Name written in their foreheads.

Written a name in the forehead means, it is engraved in somebodies (fore-)head. But not as a three-dimensional engravement, but as engraved in his mind.

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of ||Harlots, And Abominations Of The Earth.[||Or, fornications.]

We know, Babylon is a city. Cities don’t have foreheads. So this description

 

Kapitel 20 - Das scharfe Schwert; Satan befreit Verse 4

And I saw thrones, and they sate upon them, and judgement was given unto them: & I saw the soules of them that were beheaded for the witnesse of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his marke upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand yeeres.

 

Kapitel 22 - Das Wasser des Lebens wird frei angeboten Verse 4

And they shall see his face, and his Name shall be in their foreheads.
