Not a hair of your head will perish
Jesus told his disciples that a time was coming when they would be persecuted for their faithfulness to him: Luke 21:12-19. He made this promise, “Not a hair of your head will perish.”
This is a wonderful promise but it seems to contradict what Jesus said immediately before.
You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and some of you they will put to death. You will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But not a hair of your head will perish.

Most people who have read the Bible and a lot of people who haven’t have heard of the mark of the beast. Here is what the Bible says about it.
Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.
This describes something that will happen in the future, during the tribulation. Many who have heard of the mark but know little about what the Bible says are afraid that they might take the mark by accident. If you are one of these people I suggest you read this: 666 and RFID chips.
