Revelation 14:9-12 .....'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.'
This is the most solemn end time message, and we must make every effort to search and seek the truth on this matter.
What is the mark of the beast? Fall on your knees before God and pray that He will guide you to His truth and
open your eyes on this matter.
It is amazing that so many people have been deceived into thinking that the mark of the beast is some sort of
microchip or ID card. This is more Hollywood fiction than Bible truth! The third angels' message above
actually gives us the clue as to what the mark of the beast will be. First the angel describes what will happen to
those who take the mark and end up "spiritually" worshipping the beast. Then he says something of great
importance and truth. He says that the "saints", the one's who DON'T take the mark, are "keeping the
ten commandments of God and the faith OF Jesus".
So if we are KEEPING God's ten commandments through the power
of Christ's Holy Spirit working in us, then we will not take the mark. It's about our worship, faith and allegiance to God.
Now make no mistake, the mark isn't going to be as obvious to the world as is normally portrayed, like
the microchip or some sort of technology. We are
battling against the arch deceiver in Satan, so unless we arm ourselves with the truth of God's Word, by studying
it each day and making it the rule of our lives, we WILL BE DECEIVED by the evil one. So if it is keeping the
ten commandments of God that prevents us from taking the mark of the beast, then it is by BREAKING at least one of
them that causes us to take the mark. Now looking at the ten
commandments, which the angel above says the true saints are keeping, which one has the majority of the professing
Christian world been deceived on? THE SABBATH DAY!
The arch deceiver has deceived the Christian world into believing that we need not keep the 4th commandment anymore,
or that it has been changed, when in reality the seventh day sabbath is as important today as it was when God
wrote it on the tables of stone.
So how could the sabbath issue be the mark of the beast? Because the Roman Catholic Church are pushing for a
Sunday law to be enforced, and many protestants in America are now pushing for Sunday laws too. And what does it say
in Revelation 13? That the earth beast (America) causes the world to take the mark of the sea beast (the mark of
the Roman Catholic Church).
"Sunday is our MARK of authority...the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath
observance is proof of that fact." Catholic Record of London, Ontario, September 1, 1923.
"Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act...And
the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things." H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal
"Sunday is the MARK of Christian identity." Cardinal Sean Patrick O'Malley, 1st June 2012.
The little horn in Daniel 7:25 is said to
"think to change time and laws". This little horn power is the same
institution/kingdom as the sea beast of Revelation 13. It is the Papal Church of Rome. Did the Papal Church think to change
a law of God regarding time? YES! Read the above quotes again, they believe they had the power to change the sabbath
commandment from Saturday to Sunday! So the enforcement of a Sunday law, which the Roman Catholic Church are pushing for,
will be the "MARK" of the beast. Revelation 13 says that the world will be forced to take the mark, and the
three angels messages warn
against taking that mark. It will happen in America first, and then throughout the world. So we need to worship our Creator
and keep His holy seventh day sabbath that He instituted at creation, rather than keep "another" day that man invented.
The mark is coming and I pray that you will stand firm on the truth of God's Word, trust in the righteousness of
Christ Jesus, and keep God's commandments.
So what does the three angels messages tell us? That those who believe in Christ Jesus and accept His righteousness
for salvation, accept the gospel and follow Christ, worship the Creator and keep His ten commandments, will not
take the mark of the beast and will be saved. But those that substitute the holy precepts of God for the tradition and laws
of man will receive the full wrath of God, and will be lost. I pray that you will study this important issue, as the TIME is
