There is coming a day when to do business, everyone will be required to take a mark onto their right hand or forehead. If a person takes the mark, it will be to deny Jesus Christ, finally and permanently, as the One and only true God, and to join permanent allegiance with the coming man of lawlessness, the beast, Antichrist. God's Word is clear - once a person cross's that line, their fate of everlasting, unrelenting torment with the fire of God's wrath, is sealed.
Revelation 13:6, 7 - "And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name."
Revelation 14:9-11 - "Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will 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 goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name."
Mark up, buy groceries, eat, live, be in peace and safety.
For awhile - until the day of the Lord arrives.
"For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. While they are saying, "Peace and safety!" then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape."
1 Thessalonians 5:2,3
In my post from a few days ago, I show what will be happening to believers. The reason the world is crying, "Peace and safety!" is because they are experiencing the peace and safety from aligning with the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. (2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4) They are safe, but they are beast worshippers and betrayers - turning over family members to death, who love Jesus Christ with an enduring love, with a not-loving-their-life-even-to-death, love.
But those with enduring love for the Savior have something most wonderful and very special coming...
Take a look...
Revelation 22:3 - "There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it (the New Jerusalem), and His bond-servants will serve Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads."
They will see His face, and turning their foreheads, their pure, clean foreheads, He will place His precious and wonderful name there. And then with our pure, clean hands, we can fall at His feet, and love and worship and thank Him.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16
