—Deuteronomy 11:18 (NASB)
Yes, I wrote the title of this entry that way on purpose. Your first thought most likely was that I'd be expounding on the "mark of the beast". Well, in a way. Satan never comes up with anything original and operates almost exclusively by copying godly patterns in order to deceive. For some reason he's getting the most press on marking the back of the hand and the forehead, but in truth it is an imitation of God's work. It's God who first establishes that His people are identified by a mark on those places, which represent "these words of mine on your heart and on your soul". We are to be so marked by His Word.
