John Sees The Payment System You Use Today
And this beast-mass causes everyone, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bound [in agreements or involuntary servitude], to dose [receive] a ‘mark’ in [or on] their ‘right hand’, or on their foreheads, [i.e.
in their memory]
.

Timeline
Note: "Dose" is from Ancient Greek δόσις (dósis, “a portion prescribed”, literally “a giving”), used by Galen and other Greek physicians for an amount of medicine, from δίδωμι (dídōmi, “to give”/transact).

The mark can be a stamp, vaccine-record or implant on or under the skin, or as paper money, biometrically-authenticated digital cash, or any form of payment obtained by swearing oaths.

All bank accounts, passports, and government I.D.
are obtained by swearing forbidden oaths to the beast.
(James 5:12, Matt 5:33-37.)

The mark be a globally unique biometric I.D.
number or national I.D. number. "Beastly" because you have to disobey Christ to get it and to use it.

‘Forehead’ is either your literal skin, or your ‘metopon,’ your frontal lobe, the seat of your conscious will.

The Mark of the beast, at its core, is a decision choose Satan's painless convenience over painful obedience to Christ.

Buying groceries vs.
growing food yourself. Public school vs. home school. Hitch-hiking vs. driving with a license, etc.
