Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Genesis 4:15 (c) Cain received this sign from GOD which was to tell the world that this man was a sinner, a murderer. Since that time sin has left its mark upon the human body. The face tells the story of the drunkard. The eyes tell the story of jealousy and hatred. The body is influenced by the sins which are committed.
Ezekiel 9:4 (c) By this GOD indicates that He marks His own people with those blessed attributes of GOD which distinguish them from all others as the people of GOD. (See Revelation 3:12).
Revelation 13:16-17 (a) Since GOD marks His children with a distinctive brand of some kind, so the Devil, imitating GOD, puts a mark on all of his children. No one knows what the mark is, and all conjectures are in vain. This brand by the devil is put on the forehead where everyone can see it, or in the hand where it can be hidden. This sign distinguishes the devil's children from GOD's children, and will probably be branded upon all the unsaved during the tribulation days.
