05-Ultimate End Time Warning
16)”And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and enslaved, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. 17) And that no man might buy or sell, except he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18) Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred three score and six.”(666)
9)”And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10)The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb; 11)And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and
whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”
God is warning us that if we reject the lordship of Jesus Christ as His plan of salvation from sin and Hell, we will follow the devil to eternal damnation. Not because God doesn´t love us, but because we don´t love God! This last sentence is just about the saddest thing I have ever written.
During the 70th Week of Daniel the beast and false prophet from the Neo-Roman empire will institute a new world economic order. All people, regardless of their place or position, will be coerced into receiving a number or be an outcast and go without the necessities of life. That will be the logic spoken to all, but please remember, that God is very capable of caring for His people without them submitting to this damnable lie of the devil. We must warn people now to never take the mark. For our God is capable of bringing forth water from the rocks and manna from the skies. Isaiah prophesied that many Jewish converts of the 70th Week will be nourished and fed by God in the rock city of Petra, Jordan. When all the earth´s waters are turned to blood theirs will be cool and fresh (Isaiah 33:16-17, Revelation 12:14).
Today´s computer technology has the capacity to store information on all people throughout the earth. Governments and other institutions are growing more dependent on computers as time passes. Identifying people with a number is becoming standard operating procedure. Without a doubt , this growing dependence on computers and numbers will play a large part in the mark of the beast.
When this final economic system is unveiled by the antichrist and false prophet, here is one thing you must know. This system will be portrayed by the media, the counterfeit church, and the government as a “blessing from God”. That statement will shock some, enrage others, but it is the truth. For it is the false prophet from the harlot church, in union with the government, who compels people to take the mark. People will be told by the false prophet that to refuse the mark is to disobey God. He will also appeal to their patriotism and love for the world. But the god he is referring to is Satan posing as the “angel of light” whether he knows it or not.
Satan is lulling the population into a spiritual trance. He is preparing the world to receive his mark through a step by step plan. His number is being prepared and when it is unveiled , the masses will run through the devil´s door to receive their new implanted card. It is today described by the media as something “something so worldly, so welcome.” This system will seem so right because it will make life easier and more bearable. But to those who become real Christians it is the mark of eternal death and damnation.
Many in the church world today turn their ears from what we have just studied and shared. They do so because their hearts are still fixed on the things of this world. If the mark were to appear on the evening broadcast today and that tomorrow we could go sign up, these pseudo-christians would be the first ones in line. John wrote words of wisdom in the book of Revelation. Do you seek the wisdom of the world, which is foolishness to God? Or do you seek the wisdom of God which is foolishness to the world?
Some people ask, “Why is it so important to know about these things?” If you are saved, let me ask you, “Do you have any unsaved relatives and friends?” By thinking about that for a moment you hopefully will discover the importance of not turning your ear from such prophetic discussions. If your family are doubters now there is always hope that as these prophecies come to pass, they may see their need for God and repent.
Prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes shows us the faithfulness of God to do what He said He would do. It also enhances one´s faith and trust in a faithful loving Savior. This world system is opposed to God. It can´t be converted or changed. It must be destroyed, for Satan is the ruler of it, and he can´t be converted either. That´s why John said:
1 John 2:15-17,
15)”Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16)For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17)And the world passeth away, the lust of it; but he that doeth the will of the Father abideth forever.”
God is warning all of us not to conform to the evil system of this world, but be transformed by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. We must always remember that it was our sins that spilled the blood of the Lamb of God. This humbling truth produces conviction and sorrow that brings repentance and saving faith. Only by understanding this can we be empowered by the Holy Spirit to resist the devil and his snares. Have you decided for Jesus and His coming kingdom? In truth, we make our decision daily, not to take the mark of the beast, even before the number is instituted. Those who love the world will love the mark! Those whose hearts love gold and not God will take the mark. Those who love the world today will be here tomorrow to take the mark should Jesus come today for His own.
