Who Will Receive the Mark of the Beast
“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” – (Rev.13:7-10).
“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. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus” – (Rev.14:9-12). The church is raptured but the Holy Spirit stays and saves.
The Antichrist–Beast and his blasphemous mark and worship is coming soon. The rapture of God’s saints must be very near when we’re translated like Enoch and taken up to heaven. Then will come the great tribulation when God pours his wrath out upon this earth, upon the unsaved who have rejected salvation in his beloved Son. But during this terrible time God’s mercy and grace will still be working and a great multitude will be saved and washed in Christ’s blood – (Rev.7:9, 14). There are the great tribulation saints that will be persecuted and many will be martyred for their witness for Christ – (Rev. 6:9-11 &).
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Tags is a technology that uses tiny computer chips hooked up to miniature antennas to track items at a distance. There are two main components to an RFID tag – a tiny silicon computer chip that contains a unique identification number and an antenna to be read by a ‘reader.’ RFID tags are being used in most products today and this chipping is just the start. Pets and livestock are also being chipped and the end point is an RFID injected into human flesh. The “Real ID Act” recently passed by congress is the beginning and the starting point will be chipped driver’s licenses, building access cards, and student name tags, and the end point will be microchips embedded in human flesh.
During the great tribulation nobody will be able to buy or sell except they get the mark of the Beast and his number in their forehead or right hand and worship him. The mark will be a ‘buy chip’ and a ‘spy chip’ as the beast will track and spy on all who receive his mark. Instead of man tracking the beast – the Beast will track man. But he will also track the born again saints of God and persecute them and kill most of them. The Beast will be the predator that preys upon the saints of God. He is described in (Rev.13) as like a leopard with the mouth of a lion and feet of a bear – a Beastly emperor indeed. His tracking will counterfeit God’s tracking of man – “Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet” – (Job ). With his failsafe method of identification the beast will hunt down the saints and kill them, especially by beheading – (Rev.20:4).
system has been started by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for the United
States Animal Identification Organization – USAIO. All cattle and livestock
will be branded with RFID chips and will be mandatory in 2008. This means total
surveillance of all livestock. This means if you have one chicken, one cow, one
sheep, one horse, one goat, one bison, one llama, one turkey, or one duck, etc.
you must register the premises and the animals. Who do you think will be next?
You and me. It will be a 15 digit code with the first three numbers serving as
First we began with RFID chips with dead stock by merchants and manufacturers and now we are putting them in livestock (living stock) and finally it will be put into human stock. We will absolutely need the mark of the beast for all buying and selling like stock brokers buying and selling stock certificates on Wall Street. Our animals are being used as guinea pigs for experimental testing with the mark of the beast and then it will be used on humans. First people mark their beasts and then people will receive the mark of the beast. And that means total control and surveillance of humans by the emperor beast – the antichrist.
will be the last world emperor of a revived
One man who doesn’t want to hear anything about salvation in Christ, was very excited about “The Mark of the Beast.” He said he would never get the mark. I told him the Bible says plainly that only the born again saints of God will refuse the mark and suffer persecution because of it. The Beast is world emperor with power over the whole world and he makes war with the saints and overcomes them. The reason for the mark is that people will be forced to make their choice between God and Satan, good or evil. Although many people in our day think that they can avoid Christ and the gospel of salvation, one’s ultimate survival during the Tribulation will be determined by a decision for or against Christ.
Who has the right to rule over the hearts of man – Christ or Antichrist? For the only time in history, people will have a deadline for declaring their allegiance to God or Satan. Throughout the last 2000 years people have accepted or rejected the gospel message. On this occasion the process will be accelerated and forced because of the mark. All humanity will be divided into two groups- those who get the mark of the Beast and those who don’t. All people will be polarized into two camps – those who are born again and those who are not. Those who are not saved will worship Antichrist. Only the true saints of God will refuse to worship the Beast. Just as the three Hebrews refused to worship Nebuchadnezzar’s image, so the great tribulation saints will refuse to worship Antichrist-Beast and his image. All will worship the Beast and receive his mark whose name is not written in the Lamb’s book of life. The lamb’s book of life includes only those who have come to Christ for eternal life. The very moment they are born again by the Holy Spirit their names are recorded in the book of life. “And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life” – (I Jn.2:25). Is your name written there?
I care not for riches, neither silver or gold
I have made sure of heaven, I have entered the fold.
In the book of the Kingdom, with it’s pages so fair
I know Jesus is my Savior and my name’s written there.
Lord, my sins they are many, like the sand of the sea
But Thy blood, O’ my Savior, is sufficient for me.
For Thy promise is written, in bright letters that glow,
“Though your sins be as scarlet, I will make them like snow.”
Yes, my name’s written there, on the page bright and fair
And I look forward to meeting my Lord in the air
In the Lamb’s book of life on my spiritual birthday,
Yes, my name’s written there, for eternity to stay.
The Beast makes war with the saints because only the saints refuse the mark and refuse to worship him. The fight is on for the saints of the great tribulation hour. Satan’s Beast also battles the Church when they return with Christ at the battle of Armageddon – (Rev.19:14). Satan attempts to destroy the martyred saints of God who “washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the lamb” – (Rev.7:14). The saints witness to the world of the true identity of the Beast and many are martyred – “And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not the lives unto the death” – (Rev.12:11). They are beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God – (Rev.20:4). Those worshiping the Beast and his image and receiving his mark are the unsaved of both Jews and Gentiles in contrast to the saved Jews and gentiles whose names are in the book of life.
All fake-believers and make-believers in churches will be brought to light. All the unsaved ministers and deacons and church members worldwide will get the mark. The true church will be forced to go underground and meet in homes and will be separated from the world religion of the Beast and will be the objects of his fearful persecution. No matter how much these unsaved church members today now insist that they will never get the mark of the Beast, they will receive it. God tells us the he will send them strong delusion to believe the lie of Antichrist, because they rejected the truth in Christ. “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” – (2 Thes.2:9-12). O’ the pride in man that keeps them from repenting of sin and by faith believing on Christ in their heart and becoming holy saints of God, born again of the Holy Ghost.
When the tribulation saints suffer persecution and death, they will immediately go to heaven and receive a new eternal body. But all those who receive the mark will suffer in hell for eternity. “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 lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever 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” – (Rev.14:10,11). The real decision is not about receiving the mark, the important decision is about getting born again.
The mark of the Beast will be a computer digit
It will determine our eternal destinies, God forbid it.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) 666 will identify you as a follower of Antichrist. A part of your individual number will be the same for everyone – 666 – the mark and number of the Antichrist – Beast. You will be identified and united with all those that are antichrist. You will be identified in spirit and be the same as all those that oppose Christ – one in spirit. “The spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” – (Eph.2:2).
The saints of God who refuse the mark will also be identified. They will be identified as followers of Christ. They are identified with the same Holy Spirit, they are one in the spirit. “Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his” – (Rom.8:9). So you can plainly see with the mark of the Beast that everyone on earth will be identified with either Christ or Antichrist.
Are you a born again saint of God with your name written in the Lamb’s book of life? Have you repented of your sins and turned from your wicked ways and turned to Christ for salvation? Do not go on in your sinful pride and spurn the mercy and grace in God’s beloved Son on the cross. Be born again by God the Father by the incorruptible seed – “Being born again, not of corruptible, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever” – (I Pet.1:23).
O’ tribulation saint, do not fear what man shall do unto you because you have conquered death in Christ. Jesus said – “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” – (Mt.10:28). “Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” – (Rev.13:10).
All the unsaved will receive the Mark of the Beast
