Are Ration Coupons the MARK of the BEAST?
Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Born: July 31, 1892
Died: January 16, 1986
Member Since: 1928
Ordained: 1931
Office: Apostle

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

Every little while someone makes an astounding discovery - and proclaims it to all who will listen. He has at last discovered the mysterious "MARK of the BEAST!" It was inevitable that some have now "discovered" that the baffling "mark" has at last appeared. It is, they say, the ration coupons, without which you cannot buy many necessities and your dealer cannot sell them. No sooner had the Soviet adopted the hammer and sickle than a number of evangelists, ministers, and "Bible authorities" came forth with the proclamation that it was the "mark." When the Nazis popularized the swastika, there were those who excitedly warned us that it was the "mark." For years many have been going up and down the land convincing the gullible that the "fasces" on our United States dimes is the dread "mark."
