The Mark of the Beast

The middle of the Tribulation Period is marked by what is known as the “Great Tribulation Period” or the “Great Tribulation”.  This is the time that the anti-christ will tell those on the earth to make an image to the beast in the Holy place within the Jewish Temple to be worshiped by all, in which Jesus referred to the prophet Daniel who called it the “abomination of desolation”.  The bible tells us in Revelation 13:5 that the anti-christ will then have 42 months to continue.

Matthew 24:15-22

15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.”

Daniel 9:27

27 “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate.”

Revelation 13:14-15

14 “And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”

Those who will not worship the image of the beast shall be killed.  This image could be many things with the technology that we have today.  However, we must remember that the beast also has many powers.  He told those who are deceived to create an image of him, so it could possibly be a robot.  The beast then gives the “image” breath and causes it to speak, and to have many killed for not worshiping it.  Whatever you do, do not worship the beast!

Revelation 13:14-15

14 “And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”

Lambs book of Life copy

The bible goes on to tell us that those whose names are not written in the “Lamb’s Book of Life”, will worship the beast.  He is out to make war against the saints of God.  The only way to not worship the beast is to become a follower of Jesus Christ!  For scripture tells us that “all” who dwell on the earth and are “not” written in the “Lamb’s Book of Life”, “will” worship the beast!

Revelation 13:7-8

7 “It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”

“The Mark”

At this time the anti-christ will cause “all” who worship him to receive a “Mark” on their right hand or forehead.  This is also referred to as “The Mark of the Beast”!

Revelation 16-17

16 “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Whatever happens, whatever you do or don’t do, do not take the mark!  Once you have taken the mark, then you will be damned forever! Don’t buy into the lies, the deception.  There will come a day when you will not be able to buy, sell, or trade without the mark.  You must be brave and courageous.  You must be saved!

Many people have speculated on just what the mark of the beast will be.  Some think that it will be a tattoo, while others believe that it will be a microchip.  With all of the technology today, it’s easy to see this actually taking place.  Tattoos have been around for thousands of years, and with modern technology it would be very simple to mark millions of people very quickly.  On the other hand, microchips have been used for decades now.  Many products that we purchase have had them in their packaging, and animals have been implanted with them containing their identification and health records.  Over the past few years even humans have been implanted.  The trend is soon coming for humans to be routinely implanted with these chips for health records, finances, and identification.  The technology exists, it’s here, and it’s being used.

Revelation 14:9-11

9 “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. 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 ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

Those who take the mark of the beast and worship the beast, will reap the wrath of God.  He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone.  You will be condemning yourself to hell!  There is no turning back at this point, no second thoughts or change of heart.  You will have sealed your fate!

There is a way to be saved from the beast and his mark.  There is only one way, through the blood of Jesus Christ!  A person must be saved, be born again.  He must accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior!  Once saved you are sealed by the Holy Spirit of God Almighty!  You are His and His alone.  You can be killed physically, but no one can harm you spiritually.  You will live forever with God and have eternal life.  You will be changed forever, in the twinkling of an eye!

God Bless my friends!

Accept Jesus now and have eternal life!
