The Mark of the Beast by Akindele Akinyemi

Urban America has accepted the Mark of the Beast. We have accepted the Triple 6 syndrome. It is prevalent in our schools, churches and in our broken homes. All of this hell stems from education.

Urban America is in a state of emergency. It is time to sound the alarms, send for help, call in the troops. In each city, black Americans pay federal, state, and local taxes for the support of basic services. In places like Indianapolis, Detroit, and the District of Columbia, the local citizens pay taxes and cannot obtain the basic functions that are mandated by the payment of their taxes. If this was a store-bought product, we would all be asking for a refund.

We have accepted the Mark of the Beast.

We are preparing to vote for Hillary Clinton in 2008. For what reason is beyond my understanding but I know for a fact that this woman cannot lead apple sauce out of a jar. But the media is doing a great job in pumping her name in the mainstream and not only she is going to win the Democratic nomination but no Republican candidate can beat her either.

If you are planning on voting for any liberal that want to promote Universal Health Care, raising taxes, anti-educational options, anti-family, same sex marriage, pro-choice and Hillary Clinton then you have accepted the Mark of the Beast.

In the event of such a massive catastrophe occurs we need to get our local municipalities under control. As liberals move full speed with destroying communities with their piss poor policies that will keep the average family poor we, as conservatives, must now come together to face the most difficult tasks in our urban centers.

Inner-city public schools in Inkster, Detroit, Benton Harbor, Flint and Saginaw are like a sinking ship, and the children on board need to be rescued before it's too late. Their schools are sinking fast and educational opportunities are being lost. Roofs leak. Boilers are busted. Science and computer labs, if they even exist, are out of date. Classrooms are crowded. Drug and violence are commonplace. Banging is happening at the end of the hallways in our schools. Dropout rates are high; expectations and standards are low.

Inner-city parents, many of whom are low-income, are tired of waiting for others to save their children from failing schools. They pushing for and beginning to adopt all kinds of innovative strategies to turn around decrepit, bureaucratic school systems -- suing schools for failure to educate, starting charter schools, halting forced busing, and clamoring for more neighborhood schools in order to foster greater parental and community involvement. Many are opting out of the public schools altogether, with home schooling and applications for private school scholarships or tuition vouchers at record numbers.

Not surprisingly, the education establishment, particularly the teachers' unions, condescendingly pooh-pooh inner-city parents' support for school vouchers. They accuse poor parents of not having enough sense to know what's best for their own children and imply they are dupes of sinister forces out to destroy public schools.

I have been saying for years if the urban conservatives in this community want to make some noise education is the key. Just like President Bush won the Presidential race in 2004 off same sex marriage and family values we need to use education as a weapon of mass distraction from the liberal plantation in 2008.

Our society is transforming at a faster pace than before. A recent Vanderbilt University study found that 73% of white high school and college students have a computer in their home, yet only 33% of their black peers do. 28% of white Americans with household incomes of less than $40,000 annually have home computers, compared with 13% of African-Americans. 13% of white households with income under $40,000 use the Internet, compared to 8% of African-American households. And white lower-income households that do access the Internet do so more frequently: When whites and blacks from households making under $40,000 were asked if they'd visited the World Wide Web in the past month, more than three times as many whites as blacks said yes.

We cannot transform our community without transforming our educational system. Building sound and strong families who are educated will help generate wealth in our community.

We've provided kids with plenty of ways not to get a good education. We've invented mental conditions like ADD and ADHD to allow them to avoid hard work and dedication, saying, "It's not your fault, you have a reason for not paying attention."

We have gotten away from what school is all about - learning, both book learning and learning the lessons of life. Then there is discipline. Today, unfortunately, discipline is often called child abuse. I'm not talking about beating children, but instead old-fashioned discipline like when your father gave you a look and you knew to close your mouth. Or when any grown-up could take the place of your parents to make you straighten up your act. You would feel leather on your backside when it was needed, but usually the fear of it kept you in line. But today's kids have no fear of their parents.

Urban conservatives must understand the changes in our educational system and family life have come slowly and with little resistance from us, who fear being labeled insensitive by black liberals. Black liberals, noting the change, invent more excuses and conditions to explain away the problems they have wrought. Conservatives need to take action again and solve our problems now while they are relatively small because future generations will continue along the paths we choose today.

We will only succeed in educating our kids if we stand up and demand our parental rights to raise, teach and discipline them. Also, someone must take responsibility when our kids don't learn. Whether it is the kids, teachers, parents or the church, someone must step forward to explain why the kids aren't learning and help find a solution.

We must teach our kids to prepare them for future opportunities. We must lead by example, letting them see us make our own dreams come true. We must be at the top of our game or striving to be better so we can demand the best from them. We cannot expect them to obey us if we do the opposite of what we say. Actions still speak louder than words. We must, at every turn, stress the good things that education will bring, showing what it has done for us. Or, in some cases, what it has not done and why.

Otherwise, the Mark of the Beast will continue to consume our children at an alarming rate. We will lose another generation of children to the Devil. It's too bad urban America has accepted the Mark of the Beast.

The mark of the beast is not a number, or a physical thing, it is a spiritual mark.
To understand the behavior ,both in history, and in contemporary culture, one must recognize that they do not follow the teachings of Christ-Jesus, indeed they reject his teachings and substitute a new type of God(s), and a code that rejects Mosaic teaching on ethics (torah). They are the lawless that Jesus states he does not know.

There are many key elements that direct a person to who and what the beast and its mark is. One element is an image is made that people bow down to and worship and another is it has a name. Bio-chips, social security numbers, government brandings, and other concoctions do not fit. If you take the number 666 and write it in the Hebrew numbering system using letters you come up with vstr, or vav samech tav resh. Vav is a prefix while the root str means secret or hidden. If you then look up the symbols of the letters they are nail, prop, cross, and head, and mean nail, prop, mark or sign, and head or leader. If you put these together it is the crucifix, the image of the beast. If you then take the name of the image, jesus, and add it up it comes to 616. The True Messiah/Christ warned that if another came in his own name he would be accepted, and he said many will come saying they are the Messiah/Christ. He gave us the tools to figure out who this deceiver would be and pointed out the deceiver would sit in the temple of God making himself out to be God and the whole world would be deceived. No one is supposed to bow down to idols or serve them. This is what marks an individual. Do not bow down to them (mark on your forehead) and do not serve them (mark on your hand).
