Mark of The Beast & The Great Tribulation
Seek the Truth with all your heart.
We are living in crucial times, and one of the major reasons for this being so, is the soon coming ‘Mark of The Beast.’
This is the result of the many fronts such as global warming, which, when it was realized that too many people could not be fooled by this, was changed to ‘climate change’ and the push for a set day to become legally required and virtually to be enforced as a day of rest, and of giving the atmosphere a one day break from increased pollution. Some of the reasoning is for families to be able to have a day together and for the unions to be part of bringing it into force for everyone, except for certain occupations, services, and other exceptions. Although appearing to be of good intention, this all has an evil plan behind it.
This day is to be Sunday, which is the counterfeit day of rest. Saturday, the seventh day, is the true Sabbath day of rest, as established and appointed by GOD, right from creation.
There will be other factors which will be used to create pressures which will strengthen the enforcement.
The outcome will be that everyone who agrees to comply with the requirement will be required to accept what is known in Christian circles as The Mark Of The Beast.
Those receiving it, will mean that they have capitulated to the dictatorial agenda of the evil forces behind it. This will forever exclude them from being a part of GOD’s kingdom and entering heaven and eternal life. They will be slaves and prisoners of evil for the remainder of their suppressed life on Earth, followed by eternal death = complete non-existence.
The consequences for Christians who refuse to accept The Mark will be extreme pressure, limitations, and exclusion from the use of money; which will be easily applied and controlled under the forthcoming and already spreading cashless system.
Persecution will be intense, followed by being put to death, probably with torture, as happened in the middle ages when the (Roman) Catholic church tortured and killed people for owning a Bible.
This is how fiercely intent they were – are – and will be, to control people on their terms – not GOD’s terms.
Matthew 24:21 ‘For then there will be great distress, unequalled from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be equalled again.’
Revelation 2:10 ‘Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.’ This applied to a different situation, but can be applied to The Great Tribulation.
Revelation 3:10 ‘Since you have kept MY command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole Earth.’
The following was John’s vision and information from GOD when he was on the Island of Patmos, and GOD showed him heaven.
Revelation 7:13-14 ‘Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes, who are they and where did they come from?” I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
Revelation 13:15-18 ‘The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.’
Read Revelation chapters 17-18, realizing that ‘Babylon’ refers to the Catholic church.
