HELLO SIR, I've been checking out about TRIBULATIONS,the RAPTURE,MARK OF THE BEAST etc. Just wondering why if PRESIDENT BUSH claims to be a christian and understands the book of REVELATIONS, how could he allow this thing called an ''implantable transponder'' to be injected into our forheads & right hand, if he knows we're not to take the mark of the beast. I would just like to know you,ve always heard of this and to not accept it so what are we to do?
People ask me quite frequently about the mark of the beast and many have concerns that they are going to be tricked into taking it. I can assure you that will not happen. Let me bring to your attention the passage of scripture that speaks on what will be happening when the mark is mandated.
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 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.” (Revelation 13:11-18)
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. (Revelation 14:9-11)
There are a few things to point out. One, Revelation 14:9-11 acts as a visual warning to those on the earth not to take the mark of the beast. God will send angels to proclaim the truth for all to see. These angels will fly to and fro warning people not to take the mark. This will be a very strange happening. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen an angel flying in the air before. Whatever message he will bring I think I would believe it. Many will, and surprisingly, many won’t. The angelic warning will come just after the antichrist decrees his worldwide mandate. The choice will be yours to take the mark or reject it.
After reading Revelation 13:11-18, we can see that the false prophet erects a statue in the image of the antichrist. With the whole world looking on, the false prophet will do many miracles and then cause the image to speak. The image will command that every man, woman and child worship the antichrist and take his mark…666. As you read these passages you can see that we are in no way near that stage. But life can change forever in a moment as we saw on September 11th.
Honestly, by the time the antichrist declares himself as God many things will have taken place by then. For starters, one-quarter of the world’s population will be dead from war, famine, and disease (seals one through four). If we do the math, that’s 1.5 billion dead. The known superpowers will more then likely be completely wiped out, fear will strike in the heart of every man, and Christians will be hated, hunted and killed throughout the world (fifth seal).
No, you won’t have to worry about being tricked into taking the mark. It will be your choice and will be a matter of life and death, and if that’s not enough, you will receive supernatural warnings from the heavenly angels above.
