The Mark of the Beast
When I was young, I remember going with my Mom or Dad to the Commissary to buy food. With cart in hand, we would soon arrive at the Cashier’s to pay for the food; and my Parents would always use cash. The reason for using cash was because they did not have Credit or Debit cards back then. Move forward to today; it is very typical for everyone to use a “Card” when making any sort of Purchase, and that is for just about everywhere!
Not too very long ago, I learned an important lesson from my Wife. Go ahead; call me old Fashioned, but I did not know that you could go to McDonald’s and pay with a “Card.” For some reason, that just did not settle well with me; I would never have discovered that on my own. In my Old-Fashioned mind, if you had the money to go to McDonald’s, you should pay in cash. Some places take your Welfare Card as well! It truly took a while for that to sink into my Brain.
There is indeed one aspect of this new trend that really bothers me. Think on that card! How does it work, taking the money straight out of your account at the bank whenever you swipe it?
A number of places do NOT want cash; they prefer to use the card, even though they must pay for the pleasure of doing so. And if you research this action, they will tell you they feel it is quicker and Safer to do so, for you and for the business. Please…Think on this particular action and what is used. Now think about this according to the Holy Word of God. Prophecy?!
Revelations 13:16-18 “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 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 threescore and six.”
They want YOU to receive the mark of the beast! WHY? The Anti-Christ is in charge of everything right now; and the Powers that be have quietly snuck in the mindset, beginning with your Credit/debit card. So now you must have a forerunner of the “Mark of the Beast” before you are able to buy food. In other words, soon it will be no mark, No Food! And so now, you thought it was to keep you and your money SAFE, right? It was all about being more efficient, quicker and safe for everyone, right? WRONG. Please re-read the Passage of Scripture above. THEY will control YOU, your money, your Health, where you go and what you do…THEY will know!
Just so you know, this is nothing new; they did this in Germany during World War 2. My Mother-in-Law who was alive back then told me this stuff. To go to the next town, you had to go to the Town Square and obtain a “Scrip” to go anywhere! Nazi Germany 1938-1945.
Oh Yeah! Safer, more Efficient for all. Who is the All? According to the Holy Word of God, it will be after the Rapture of God’s Church; thus, the wicked left behind. I am not saying this; it is in the Word of God, the Bible. No Mark, no food, No mark…death for you! So the very next question must be, Where will YOU be? What will happen next? How will YOU survive, get food, find shelter, or get clothes?
Revelation 14:9-11 “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, 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: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”
Ooops! Does this make you think about this MARK? And we walk around nowadays using our Credit/Debit cards as if it is the most normal thing to do…am I correct? So what is next? An RFID chip in our hand or face? What do you think? “Oh, wow; no more carrying around a wallet with Credit or Debit cards…right?” That is so passé, right? More safe, more convenient, less baggage, just raise your hand, or show your face; Correct? Please…re-read that passage of Scripture above; the answer is right there. So now, do you think they have YOUR best interest at heart?
“Well, I have property with Cattle and chickens, sheep and pigs; I’ll grow my own food too!” Have you ever paid taxes on all this stuff? Do you know that THEY know where you are and what you have been doing? One way or the other, YOU will pay THEM or you will die at THIER hand. Sorry y’all; there is no way out. Well, except you believe and choose Jesus Christ! Then you will already be gone in the Rapture…you’re no longer here on earth. THEY will no longer matter to you. OH, I’m sorry; you already said, “YOU have your own beliefs”…right? How’s that working out for YOU?
Let’s review some:
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
John 14:5-7 “Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.”
In my previous articles, I have mentioned these Passages of Scripture before, and I will continue to do so…they are absolute TRUTH. I don’t know about YOU…but I want to be in Heaven with my Lord and Savior…while the above takes place here on earth.
Jesus Christ is your every answer to absolutely everything! No Jesus…in YOUR life…you will remain right here on earth and enjoy all that will take place. Just so you know…that time will be very short…you will then go to the Great White Throne Judgment…then Hell and the Lake of Fire! That IS IN the Holy Word of God too, “Where there are Tears and Gnashing of Teeth!” “And the smoke rises like a great furnace…there is no end to the torment!”
My Friends…that do not know the Lord God Jesus Christ…YOU need to read the Holy Word of God…for YOURSELVES…and KNOW the TRUTH.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
All Passages of Scripture come from the King James Version of the Bible.
