Have you ever wondered what has happened to people in Daniel’s 70th week, aka the seven-year tribulation period, that they just will not repent of their Sin and call upon the Lord Jesus in faith, and choose the Lord Jesus alone?
Or have you ever wondered what is so dreadful about the Mark of the Beast (MOTB) that when one accepts and receives the MOTB, it dooms the recipient for all eternity?
Surely throughout the church age, all manner of horrific deeds have been committed by all manner of sinful people holding all manner of false beliefs living within all manner of wicked circumstances.
But we see in scripture and in human history that some of these types of dreadfully wicked people experienced a dramatic encounter with the Most High God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and have called upon Him in repentance and believed on Him in faith, and were ultimately brought to salvation via the Most High’s amazing mercy and grace.
We’re talking murders, mass murders, adulterers, fornicators, embezzlers, extortionists, blackmailers, massive liars and cheats, witches, necromancers, idolaters, Satan/devil/demon worshippers, blasphemers, etc.
None of these types were so bad or too far for the mercy and grace of our Lord Jesus to reach them and rescue them.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
In spite of our Lord Jesus, the Most High God’s inexhaustible supply of mercy and grace, we see in scripture those who repented not or who choose to doom themselves to an eternity of unending torment.
Surely our Lord Jesus gives these people horrific and dreadful enough circumstances in the course of Daniel’s 70th week that any person in possession of his right mind would call upon the Lord Jesus in hope of rescue and relief.
The Bad, The Ugly, The Horrific
I believe the Lord Jesus uses all the bad, ugly, and horrific events of Daniel’s 70th week to accomplish His multiple purposes, one of which is to drive people to call upon His name in repentance. These people failed to call upon the Lord Jesus during the church age when His mercy and grace were so predominantly displayed and openly and freely poured out on people. During Daniel’s 70th week, the Lord Jesus gives them the proverbial whack with a 2×4 in an attempt to gain their attention, but to no avail … they repented not.
Revelation 9:20 “But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk.”
Revelation 9:21 “And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”
Revelation 16:9 “And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.”
Revelation 16:11 “They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.”
Even after a supernatural warning from an angel flying through the midst of heaven telling people not to accept the MOTB and not to worship the beast or the beast’s image, and that they will suffer eternal torment if they do.
Revelation 14:9-11 “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, 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. 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.’”
In spite of this herald of eternal doom, they receive the MOTB anyway; they worship the beast; they worship the image of the beast. They repented not.
This behavior perplexes me. I’m dumbstruck to think that these people hate our Lord Jesus so much that they would prefer to suffer throughout eternity rather than call upon the Lord Jesus in hope of obtaining His mercy, grace, and salvation.
Something More Than Hate
But then I begin to consider the technology of these last days, that which is already here and being implemented, and the shadow of the coming technology that already looms over us with its continually growing menace.
Then I say to myself, Oh! Now, I better understand why they accepted the MOTB and why they repented not.
I used to think the only reason people did not repent was their hearts, minds, and consciences had become so hardened and seared that they had lost the ability to repent. And while I don’t totally discard that idea, I believe there’s something more that explains why they repented not and why they choose eternal doom over the prospect of salvation — why they choose not the Lord Jesus.
If a seared conscience was the cause, why does scripture even discuss the matter of repentance? The fact that scripture reveals this matter of no repentance implies there is still an opportunity for people to choose to go the repentance route. It implies and indicates our Most High God, our Lord Jesus, has not blocked people from repenting; He has not excluded people from this grace.
2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
Acts 17:30 “Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.”
For these verses to remain true, for the Lord Jesus to remain true to His character and to His inerrant, immutable, infallible, and totally-sufficient Word, He cannot block or prevent people from coming to repentance. He desires greatly for people to repent, believe on Him in faith, and to choose Him alone.
Coming Soon … People Are Blocked from Repentance
However, what I believe will happen is the people alive during Daniel’s 70th week, aka the seven-year tribulation period, will attach technology to their bodies or take technology into their bodies, i.e., their right hand or their foreheads, and other routes too that will block them from the ability to repent or call upon the Lord Jesus in faith.
Some years ago, about 2014, I taught a Bible prophecy and current events study that assessed the MOTB and how it interfaced with a bigger system via wireless technology, i.e., WiFi and blue tooth. Connecting to the system via WiFi enabled or empowered a person to gain access to all the benefits associated with the system.
I took the position that if one’s personal Mark is sending information out to a centralized MOTB system, then that same system is also sending information, instructions, and commands back to the sender. There is a constant, continual give and take inherent to the MOTB system.
Scripture emphasizes the MOTB on the right hand or on the forehead, but it really does not address the system the Mark must integrate with and be connected to — that centralized, harmonized, unified hub that controls the flow of information to and from one’s personal Mark.
But living in our technological world of today, we know and understand an electronic device, a smartphone, a tablet, a laptop, a MOTB is merely a component of an integrated system that is ruled and monitored by a centralized command and control function … the brain behind the system.
The Great Reset and The Fourth Industrial Revolution
Another element that adds to my understanding of why the MOTB dooms people to eternal torment and blocks and prevents people from coming to repentance is the whole concept of the Great Reset and Fourth Industrial Revolution (FIR).
I have watched a number of videos in recent weeks sponsored by the World Economic Forum (WEF). In their own words, the leaders behind this group have explained the Great Reset, and the FIR is not merely about changing how we do business or do business smarter. This Great Reset is really about us; it is fundamentally about changing humankind at its root core.
Check out this YouTube video – What Is the Fourth Industrial Revolution? – featuring Klaus Schwab, the founder of the WEF and principal mastermind behind the Great Reset and the FIR.
The Great Reset seeks to implement the ideals of the FIR’s desires to change the manner in which humans view and think about themselves. It seeks to alter our values, belief systems, intellect, psychology, emotions, and behaviors.
The Great Reset and the FIR seek to build the human race back better, but it schemes to do so according to the image of those demonically inspired, motivated, and energized masterminds behind the effort — just like the rebel Nimrod and his wicked pals attempted a globally rebellious build back better program post-flood at the Tower of Babel in an effort to reconnect to the fallen disobedient, defiant, and rebellious angels. What the WEF and the global elite are doing via the Great Reset and the FIR is every bit as rebellious and worse. Nimrod and his crew wanted to reestablish personal interactions with the so-called “gods,” but the WEF wants to literally make people “gods” in the WEF’s image with its approval.
The entire Great Reset is the WEF and the globalists lifting humankind up against the Lord Jesus, the Most High God. Their effort hopes to poke humankind’s proverbial finger in the Most High God’s eye. This will not end well for humankind.
In some of the videos I mentioned, the WEF leaders and their host of experts have used terms such as transhumanism , singularity , and augmented persons .
So, what is Transhumanism? 
It refers to an optimistic belief in the enhancement of the human condition through technology in all its forms. In other words, a transhuman is a being that resembles a human in most respects but who has powers and abilities beyond those of standard humans. These abilities might include improved intelligence, awareness, strength, or durability.
What is human augmentation? 
Human augmentation is the ability to perform actions, whether physical or mental, with the help of tools that practically integrates into our bodies. [Can you say Facebook Metaverse?] Here the word “practically” has an ambiguous meaning since not every increment of this type is directly grafted onto the body. And it has not been difficult to see this human performance improvement in our daily lives. We are already experiencing an increase in our natural abilities thanks to wearable devices, such as smartwatches and smartphones.
What is the technological singularity? 
There is a rough agreement among many A.I. experts that the technological singularity – the moment when machine intelligence supersedes human intelligence and life as we know it changes unrecognizably – will take place soon after 2030. Check out this YouTube video – Ray Kurzweil and The Singularity.
In this writer’s opinion, the A.I. will achieve such a human-like nature that it becomes a fit extension to be indwelt by the great fiery red dragon, who is Satan and the devil, who deceives the whole world. The MOTB system is being literally designed and tailor-made for him.
Since Satan is a supernatural counterfeit, indwelling the MOTB system is as close as he’ll ever get to being omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient, which represents his eternal desire and longing to seize the worship that belongs alone to our Lord Jesus Christ, our Most High God.
Isaiah 14:13 “For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’ Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.”
Lying Signs and Wonders
Via his supernatural abilities and the power of technology, Satan and his son of perdition, the Anti-Christ, aka the beast, will demonstrate beautiful lies and wonderful deceptions that will take in and dupe and ensnare. The lies and deceptions will seize people mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. None will escape unless one’s name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
Revelation 13:8 “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.”
Let’s Talk Technology
Since the WEF is so set on using the Great Reset and the technology of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (FIR) to advance its wicked and rebellious purposes, let’s talk about some more technology that likely fits into the overall scheme. Bear in mind the technology is not yet perfected and not yet fully implemented, but that’s merely a short matter of time.
Starlink, an Elon Musk project to insert about forty-two thousand low-cost, low-orbit satellites in space around our planet — the purpose is to ensure everybody has access to the internet. I mean literally everybody on the plant will have good internet connectivity 24/7/365. Once Starlink is fully implemented, people will always be connected to the burgeoning global system, whether you wish it or not.
An interesting point that I have gleaned is that other nations and potentially non-governmental organizations will likely also insert their own low-cost, low-orbit satellites into space. You are not only connected to the internet 24/7/365; the redundancy is layered so that you never miss a micro-second of connectivity.
Check out this Starlink YouTube video – Elon Musk Just Revealed Starlink 2.0:
5G to the rescue.
The WEF tells us the future will rely on big data. A monolithic system will consume and produce gobs and gobs of big data. Such a system must move the big data at incredible speeds to ensure the system works seamlessly.
Oh, BTW … 6G is already on the way!
Check out this 5G YouTube video – How 5G Works and What It Delivers.
And of course, somehow all this technology must seamlessly tie a person who “owns” a personal MOTB to the centralized global A.I. singularity command and control function … in comes the neuralink, another Elon Musk project, that envisions a chip inserted and connected directly into your brain that opens up a whole new world of many seemingly impossibilities. Here’s another YouTube video – How Neuralink Works.
A Brief Word
Here’s a brief word on Elon Musk: from what I see and hear on social media and the MSM … I like him! Wowzer! He’s a brilliant man. He’s a brilliant, ambitious entrepreneur. He has built incredible companies that achieve incredible feats and outcomes. He seemingly pushes back against the lunacy of the leftists and the global elite. He comes across like a common man, like he’s one of us. He is not! That’s the farthest thing from the truth. Take heed that no man deceives you! Watch out! When it comes to Elon Musk and all that he’s doing and building, you must consider him in the light of much Holy Spirit-generated discernment and wisdom.
Additionally, contrary to what the Babylon Bee implies, I seriously doubt what we saw in the Bee’s interview with Elon Musk was Musk’s believing and trusting in our Lord Jesus Christ in an act of faith and receiving Him as his Savior. Enough said.
Returning To Tech
Congratulations! Along with Captain Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation, you have become an augmented Borg hopelessly connected to the Hive mind that is infested by that supernatural rebel, the great fiery red dragon, who is the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world.
Revelations 12:9 “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
I can’t help but laugh when I consider all this technology coming together at basically the same time and at the right time according to our Most High God’s purposes. It’s as if some supernatural plan for the ages is being wonderfully orchestrated and executed. Yep!
Everything is falling into place.

The Alteration of Humankind Has Already Begun
The radical change of humankind, as envisioned by the WEF, was launched on the vectors of two alleged crises: 1) Covid-19 and the submission to a mostly useless so-called vaccine; 2) and a so-called climate catastrophe labeled man-caused Global Climate Change.
The WEF, other global organizations, international power-brokers, corporate and public organizations, and elites are actively using these two alleged crises bundled with plenty of fear, threats, and intimidation to coerce change in people psychologically, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and behaviorally.
Now let’s throw in another crisis: the man-made global supply-chain crisis, which heaps another layer of fear, threats, and intimidation on top of what these global outlaws have already manufactured.
The WEF and its global international buddies are sending the clear signal: In the Great Reset world, if you want to meet your basic needs, then you must go along in order to get along. Otherwise, you will be excluded from participation in the system and its “benefits”:
- No job
- No income
- No home
- No way to pay bills
- No food or drink
- No way to access your personal resources
- No doctor
- No healthcare
- An overall negative impact on you, your family, and your children
- No means to purchase anything anywhere
Just as with the Covid-19 and the alleged vaccine, if your legitimate options are blocked and prevented, then you are being caused or forced to participate in the system. People are being conditioned and pressed into the mold that the WEF believes best fulfills its purposes.
Another Crisis Is on The Way
I guess a global digital currency or credit (GDC) and related financial system is coming next as it makes the best logical step in the inexorable progression toward the MOTB system.
Will the WEF and this wicked bunch of lawless international elites bring that GDC in via a global mandate or by manufacturing another global crisis? Hmmmmm. I say via another crisis because it better serves their purposes and allows these spiritually and demonically controlled thugs to move more people to their desired way of thinking and desired behavior more quickly.
A crisis will condition people’s behavior and psychological mindset more deeply than a slow, deliberate, systematic implementation of the MOTB system.
A crisis will help these demonically controlled and energized whack jobs to more easily hold on to the gains they achieve. We see it related to Covid-19 and the vaccine; these guys have hammered and coerced people for two years.
Generally speaking, people around the world have given up control, power, and authority over their lives to their “benevolent” leaders who are so “dedicated” to helping the people weather this horrible crisis. You can be sure these wicked leaders will not give that power, control, and authority back to the people.
Even as I write this next section, I hear some of you readers railing on me and making claims that I blaspheme or that I’m a heretic, but here goes anyway.
The coming future global digital currency (GDC) and the financial system that supports it are not the MOTB; the system is not yet the MOTB system. For that to happen, the son of perdition, the Anti-Christ, aka the beast, must first appear on the scene, and he must introduce and implement the MOTB. If the Rapture has not yet evacuated believers, what will you do? How will you get along when the GDC and its financial system hit the initial stages of implementation?
When cash supplies dwindle, dry up, and otherwise are officially ended and no longer printed, what will we do? You may have “cash money” in the bank but can’t access it or use it because “cash money” is not compatible with this new system.
I’m adapting an idea I recently heard Sr. Pastor Mark Henry of Revive Brooklyn Park Church share: If and when your bank offers you an incentive of five GDC credits for each cash-dollar you convert, what will you do? Will you stubbornly refuse to convert and miss out on a decent financial opportunity?
When the GDC and its financial system arrive on the scene, it’s here to stay; it’s not going away. The two combined will become the only game in town.
What will you do, wait until the last minute to convert your cash-dollars to the GDC when your exchange rate has dropped to .750 GDC credits for each dollar you convert? Now you’re converting at a loss. How dumb and foolish is that?
But you are correct, and I agree with you, that at some future day, after the son of perdition, the Anti-Christ, aka the beast, appears on the scene, the GDC and its supporting financial system will fall under his full control; his False Prophet will cause and force all who wish to participate and access the system to receive the MOTB and worship the beast and worship the image of the beast. As in the days of Roman Emperor worship, just a pinch of incense is all you need.
The eternal doom spoken of in scripture is attached to the MOTB and worship of the beast and his image. Doom is not associated with the routine use of the GDC and the system that supports the GDC. The use of technology in and of itself is not evil. How one uses technology reflects malintent or evil. But in the days that are surely coming, the more technology you use, it potentially carries you deeper into that proverbial rabbit hole. Live and walk cautiously!
Walking in the power of Holy Spirit discernment is recommended and advised.
What’s The Catalyst of The Next Crisis?
What vector or crisis will that cabal of international thugs manufacture as the mechanism that carries the world to the next phase?
Perhaps a Ukrainian and Russian war that threatens a WWIII- type engagement that could involve a limited thermo-nuclear exchange or the threat of it. Or maybe another major Middle East conflict that rides in on the tails of Iranian nuclear talks … like maybe the Gog/Magog conflict.
How about another pandemic that is truly double-digits lethal, like smallpox, which holds a historical death rate of up to 34%. Hmmmm. Interestingly, at least the WEF and the global elite have ample evidence pandemics, and their multiple variants work very well. And the WEF and its wicked friends have demonstrated pandemics, and their aftermath can literally wreck the economies of many multiple nations.
Or maybe a strategic pre-emptive attack of some type on the USA. What fun the WEF and its allies will have if they specifically target and collapse the USA and its dollar.
When one considers the matter, there are literally multiple options that may serve the WEF’s purposes to collapse the world’s current financial and economic systems and thereby set the world firmly and inescapably on the path to a GDC and its related financial system. And when cash currency is gone, so is an option to meet your basic needs via an alternate means.
Come One, Come All!
At first, everyone will be “allowed and encouraged” to participate in this new global digital currency (GDC) and its financial system. Come one, come all! It will help build confidence and dependence on this new “wonderful” system. This new system will help people meet their basic needs. Initially, the system will likely seem generic and merely a new way of conducting routine business, but slowly and surely over time, the WEF and its international cadre of the wicked will apply the screws, just like we’re seeing related to those who refuse the mostly useless so-called Covid-19 vaccine.
You cannot participate in public events or everyday activities unless you prove via your vaccine passport that you are fully vaccinated and boosted. You are blocked and prevented from participation in the new GDC system unless you compliantly surrender, jumping through some pre-determined hoop. By the way, that hoop of compliance will become a moving target designed to reel one in more deeply and entrench one in the system.
In a world of limited resources or limited availability of resources (supply-chain crisis), having never had a thing versus having a thing then losing it creates significant tension in peoples’ psychology and more readily and more quickly impacts their behavior. When the system begins to cut people off, shut them out, and exclude them from participation, it will create a whole new human dynamic. Now cut off from cash, and there is only one tightly controlled GDC and financial system, people will begin to panic. This will cause and force people to participate more deeply in the system’s ever-increasing manipulations. So springs the trap!
A Looming Question of Access
The question now looms … what, potentially, is that hoop of compliance that allows people to maintain access to this GDC system or allows those previously cut off and shut out to recover access to the system? What are increasingly desperate people willing to trade for access and “normalcy”?
Hmmmm. A number? An app on one’s smartphone? A portable or wearable electronic device? A device coupled with a unique biometric? Or maybe a device, a biometric, and a genetic marker.
Whatever the initial hoop of compliance, be sure it will change. Over a relatively short period of time, that hoop of compliance will migrate, shift, and evolve until the arrival of THE prophesied global tyrant. His global digital currency system will require an electronic device on or embedded in or just under the surface of the skin of your right hand or a carefully placed artistically designed beautifully crafted “ornament” on one’s forehead. No one may buy or sell or participate in the system unless he has the MOTB and worships the son of perdition, the Anti-Christ, aka the beast.
Scripture tells us the False Prophet, the so-called “man of peace and spirituality,” will cause or force the implementation of the MOTB under a cloud of lies and deception, just like the Covid-19 vaccine was handled.
Under the direction of the United Nations, the World Health Organization, and a host of national bodies and governments, the Covid-19 vaccine is similarly being caused or forced upon peoples of the world through progressive lies and deceptions coupled with brutal heavy-handed tactics.
- The vaccine is safe and effective … a lie.
- The vaccine gives you full immunity … a lie.
- The vaccine gives you partial immunity … a lie.
- The vaccine gives you some limited partial immunity … a lie.
- The vaccine gives you some protection … a lie.
- The vaccine prevents severe symptoms … a lie.
- You must get the vaccine because we say so … caused or forced.
Revelation 19:20 “Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.”
It’s a lie! Whatever “supernatural” transhuman powers or “benefits” the MOTB and the MOTB system offers … it’s a lie!
Here it comes, the capstone of this MOTB system: The Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) singularity, which serves as the command-and-control function of this centralized system that, in theory, every person on the globe is tied into via one’s personal Mark.
At this point, most people on the planet have become Borgs tied into the hive mind. We will own nothing, not even our own dang minds, but we’ll be happy. To some degree, the system will quite literally hijack people’s minds. Resistance is futile.
And of course, this A.I. singularity will have no concept of the Lord Jesus Christ as God as even unbelievers might traditionally conceive Him. The A.I. will daily tell people there is no God other than the A.I. and the hive mind, which is ruled by the dragon, who is the devil and Satan.
We have come full circle. The A.I. brain, aka Satan/devil, will work his lying signs and wonders via his son of perdition, the Anti-Christ, aka the beast, as the system networks across the globe and interweaves its way through each person’s life. The MOTB system will constantly send endless communications to each person’s interfacing neural chip, preventing one from coming to the knowledge of the truth and calling out to the Lord Jesus in repentance. Per scripture: They repented not.
Once a person receives his personal MOTB, he is brain and mind-controlled to prevent him from ever attempting to remove his personal Mark. The Satan-infested A.I. will lie and deceive, telling the recipient he is better off to remain a component of the system. The Mark recipient will believe THE lie.
The False Prophet tells people to build an image of and to the beast. And now that one is a component of the MOTB system, one has agreed and surrendered to allow the system to tell you anything, and you are obligated to obey.
The A.I. system which harbors that supernatural rebel, the devil /Satan, the dragon, will speak through his son of perdition, the Anti-Christ, aka the beast, telling the world that worshiping the beast is where it’s at; integration with the system is the thing that makes them the most happy, allows their continuing participation in the system, and grants access to all the system’s “benefits.”
The Wrath of God/The Wrath of the Lamb
As the wrath of the Most High God, the Lord Jesus is poured out, and the world literally crumbles around them under the hypnotic sway and the total mental entrapment of hijacked minds, the son of perdition, the Anti-Christ, aka the beast, will tell the world to curse and blaspheme the Lord Jesus. They repented not.
Those who receive a personal MOTB under the cloud of lies and deceptions are those who did not have a love for the truth, which truth is the Lord Jesus Christ. These recipients are blocked and prevented from calling on the Lord Jesus in a faithful act of repentance. By accepting the MOTB and relinquishing their control to the MOTB system, they choose eternal doom instead of eternal life. After they literally surrendered their ability to repent, like Esau gave up his birthright, future opportunity to repent is literally snatched from them.
Now, I get it. Now, I better understand. They repented not.
The Lord Jesus, Savior, The Remaining Hope, Right Now
Scripture is clear: John 3:16 “… whoever believes on the Lord Jesus shall not perish, but obtain everlasting life.” John 3:36 “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” Romans 10:13 “… whoever calls upon the Lord Jesus shall be saved.
If you have not yet repented of your Sin and called upon the Lord Jesus, you should and must do so today, right now, while you are still theoretically in control of your own mind and all your choices.
The days are coming when you will likely make an initial decision to tie yourself by a Mark to an all-encompassing global system of beautiful lies and wonderful deceptions that will cut you off and prevent you from ever turning back. That initial choice, just like what happened with Adam and Eve, is all you, but after that, the matter is taken out of your hands. This MOTB way cuts off all hope.
Choose the Lord Jesus today, right now. That’s the right choice. Choosing Him and believing Him brings eternal life. Choosing the Lord Jesus maintains and secures your hope.
