Mark or Name or Number of Beast

"It will also be noticed that this 'league' [The International Sunday Observance League] has other plans besides the intention to prosecute those who will not bow to their man-made Sabbath. Perhaps they will prosecute those who do not believe in the Trinity. Their, spiritual ancestors, the Puritans, considered the arrest and punishment of those who rejected this church dogma as something pleasing to the Deity ... The doctrine of the Trinity and the sacredness of Sunday are both orthodox plums of marvelous sweetness to the ministerial too." (Review and Herald, Nov.20, 1894, Vol.71, No.46, p.730)

Many people today are so focused on the mark of the beast alone, they forget that there are other major deceptions that Satan has brought upon this world. We tend to think that as long as we reject the coming MARK of the beast, then we will be ok. People even say ... 'Don't worry about the details of the God we worship, it's a mystery, just make sure you don't take the mark!' But is this right? Of course not! Our God of the Bible is not a 'mystery' at all! God has clearly revealed who He is. So what does Revelation state concerning the coming deception:

Revelation 13:16-17 ...'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.'

Revelation 14:11 ...'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 13:1 ...'And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.'

So as you can see, this last day deception isn't only about the actual mark (please see our MARK OF THE BEAST website to see what the actual mark is). No, there are MANY last day deceptions that will place the people of the world on the side of the beast. And as Revelation 13 states, you will be on the side of the beast whether you have it's mark, or name, or number. Meaning ANY deception of the beast by which you have been made "drunk", will place you on the side of the beast and against the Lord Jesus Christ.

So how can we be associated with the 'NAME' of the beast?

Well, what is the most important aspect when we are dealing with the 'name' of God? Revelation 14 talks about a special group of people in the last days who have their Father's name in their forehead. And to have this seal in their forehead, it means they have an understanding of the one true God. And this is also portrayed in their worship, character and lives.

Exodus 20:2-3 ...'I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.'

Isaiah 45:5 ...'I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me.'

The most important aspect of the 'name' of God and getting the seal of God is actually worshipping the true God of the Bible. And who is that? Jesus confirms in John 17:3 and Paul confirms in 1 Corinthians 8:6 and 1 Timothy 2:5 that it is the Father (Jehovah). The Father is the one true God of the Bible. And He has a literal Son, who is Jesus Christ, who came to this earth to reveal His Father, the true God to us.

So what 'god' does the beast worship and promote? The trinity god. And the trinity teaching states that God consists of 3 beings - God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. And yet the Bible cearly specifies that God is 'one LORD' which is the Father alone! And the Father commanded that we are to have no other 'gods' before HIM

1 Corinthians 8:6 ...'But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.'

PLEASE SEE - THE ONE TRUE GOD OF THE THREE ANGELS MESSAGES

This one God, the Father, is clearly portrayed right throughout the Bible. Jesus even stated Himself in John 17:3 that His Father is the only true God, and that the Godhead consists of the Father and Son alone. And yet the world worships and promotes this confusing 3 in 1 god of Babylon instead! This is a great deception. And what does Revelation 13 say the name that the beast has on it's heads? 'The name of blasphemy'. And as we know, blasphemy is to make something 'god' that isn't actually God.

So to worship and promote the same god of the beast - the false trinity god - is to have the 'name of the beast'.

Now many Seventh-day Adventists are waiting for the Sunday law, thinking that this is the only deception and test in the final days. And they have been deceived into worshipping the false trinity god of Rome. Now something that many don't realize is that a bill was introduced in Washington DC back in 1890 regarding Sunday rest and the trinity:

"Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That it shall be unlawful for any person or corporation, or employe of any person or corporation in the District of Columbia, to perform any secular labor or business, or to cause the same to be performed by any person in their employment on Sunday, except works of necessity or mercy; nor shall it be lawful for any person or corporation to receive pay for labor or services performed or rendered in violation of this act ...."

"...In this connection let me say, gentlemen, that the District of Columbia has just the same kind of a Sunday law as that of Ohio. This law of the District of Columbia was in force when this book was issued which I hold in my hand, which was April 1, 1868; and I am told that this law (which I will read) was re-enacted in 1874. I now quote from the law. Section 1 provides that- 'If any person shall deny the Trinity, he shall, for the first offense, be bored through the tongue, and fined twenty pounds; ... and for the second offense, the offender being thereof convict as aforesaid, shall be stigmatized by burning on the forehead with the letter B, and fined forty pounds; and for the third offense, the offender being thereof convict as aforesaid, shall suffer death, without the benefit of the clergy.' Section l0 of the same law has this:- 'No person whatever shall do any bodily labor on the Lord's day, commonly called Sunday ... Now, gentlemen, that law has never been repealed." (Arguments on the Breckinridge Sunday Bill - source)

"Taking this to some lawyers, they told us that the old law we had found was still binding. This is a very strict law, and provides that the offender shall pay a fine of 200 pounds of tobacco. But that which makes this law appear so strange, is that it is found in direct connection with another statute which provides that any one who publicly denies the Trinity as commonly held, shall, for the first offense, have his tongue bored through, and for the third offense, suffer death without the benefit of the clergy. Possibly the reason why the promoters of the present Sunday law ignore the one now on the statutes, is because it is in the company of another law so barbarous in its make-up, thus showing the nature of the company Sunday laws of the past have always kept." (Review and Herald, Jan.21, 1890, Vol.67, No.3, p.44)

See our page 1890 BRECKINRIDGE SUNDAY BILL AND THE TRINITY for more info on this.

So what law on the statute books is in 'direct connection' to the Sunday rest bill? The law that anyone who publicly denies the trinity will be persecuted. And we know that according to Rome, Sunday is directly connected to their trinity god ... "every Sunday is devoted to the honor of the Most Holy Trinity, that every Sunday is sanctified and consecrated to the triune God." (source).

Now attached to the Sunday law bill in Ohio, we find the following exemption ... "The proviso of the Sunday law exempts those only who conscientiously observe the seventh day of the week as the Sabbath." (Arguments on the Breckinridge Sunday Bill, [see source above]). So 7th day Sabbath keepers would be exempt. But those who deny the trinity would be punished! Do you see the deception of Rome? Is this going to factor into the coming Sunday law? We will see. But the fact shows that this is not just about the Sunday law, as the trinity god of Rome is closely connected to it.

So Seventh-day Adventists who keep the Sabbath, yet worship the trinity are still following Rome! Remember, you will be worshipping the beast by accepting the mark OR name, OR number of the beast.

The Seal of the Living God

Revelation 7:2-3 ...'And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.'

In the last days, there will be a group of people who receive the 'seal of the living God'. Revelation 14 also mentions these people, having their 'Father's name in their foreheads'. And these are the one's who are not deceived by the mark OR the name OR the number of the beast. Now notice it says that these people receive the seal of the LIVING GOD. But who exactly is the 'living God? The disciples answer this for us:

Matthew 16:16 ...'And Simon Peter answered and said, thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.'

John 6:68-69 ...'Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.'

Now if Jesus Christ is the SON of the living God, then who is the living God? Jesus tells us in John 17:3 ...'And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.' ... So the true living God is the Father (Jehovah). He is the one true God of the Bible. And it is HIS name that is in the foreheads of the end time saints. Whereas those who worship the god of the beast - the trinity - they receive the name of the beast in their forehead.

Just look at what the Catholic Church says about the trinity in their Catechism ... "The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the central mystery of Christian faith and life. It is the mystery of God in himself. It is therefore the source of all the other mysteries of faith, the light that enlightens them. It is the most fundamental and essential teaching in the 'hierarchy of the truths of faith'. The whole history of salvation is identical with the history of the way and the means by which the one true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, reveals himself to men." (No. 234)

So the Catholic Church not only calls the 'one true God' - 'Father, Son and Holy Spirit', which the Bible never says. They say this is the most essential teaching of our faith. And it is upon this teaching that the Christian world will UNITE with the Papal Church of Rome. And the whole world is so focused on just the MARK of the beast, they have been duped into taking the name of the beast, which will also get them lost!

So who's 'name' will you receive friend? Will you receive the name of the Father - the one true and living God? Or will you receive the name of the beast? The decision is yours, but the consequences are eternal! This is so vital friends! Please study through our TRUTH ABOUT THE TRINITY page and give your worship to the one true living God of the Bible - not the gods of Babylon!
