In reading this I agree with some commentators say that this mark was – literally, TAU the name of the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
It was the first letter of the word Torah (the law of God) and being the last letter in the Hebrew alphabet is signified complete obedience.
TAU in it’s original form was that of a CROSS.
“Christians, noting the resemblance of this letter in its most ancient form to a cross, have seen herein a reference to the cross with which Christians were signed.” (Barnes).
This was a sign of signs and a mark of marks. In Exodus 12 we see the Passover event where the blood of the Lamb was sprinkled on the door jams and door posts of the Israelite homes as a notice to the destroying angel what house he should not destroy.
Now this saving sign the cross, has marked the minds and hearts of God’s people as the seal of the Holy Spirit (2 Cor 1:22; 2 Tim. 2:19).
They grieve over the obscene detestable things done in this world because sin has no agreement with the temple of God, and they are his church who really worship God in the power of the Spirit.
We have the Only true Perfect Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ who perfectly obeyed his Father and we have been sealed by his Holy Spirit. His Heavenly Father’s name has been placed in our foreheads (Rev. 7:3, 14;1).
