James 2:19 = Even the DEMONS *Believe & Tremble!*

James 2:19 “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble“.

The 2nd part of James 2:19 isn’t a passage that most Christians and/or church leaders talk about very often, if at all (or even do so much as think about). In fact, the VERY first time I read that passage at the tender age of 19-21, I was AWESTRUCK! The demons TREMBLE with FEAR at Jesus? F E A R? Why? I had thought at the time. Wouldn’t it make more technical sense for them to react to Jesus with ANGER, rather than FEAR?”

But let us look at two other bible passages in the bible which address this very issue!

Matthew 8:28-29 says: “And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, ‘What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?‘”

The Matthew 8:29 passage, in my further attempt at fully understanding the “demons’ fear of Jesus” back then, really got me to start questioning everything I “thought” I knew at that point about Satan and demons! Like, I KNEW that Satan and demons were ANGRY things! But little did I know, as per that passage and the 1st passage I listed, that they were FEARFUL, angry things! WHY? Because they KNOW that Jesus has the POWER to eternally judge them! 

Luke 8:28 further echos the sentiment: “When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, ‘What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me NOT!'”

When I originally read the Luke 8:28 passage back then, I sort’ve had this “human” mental imagery in my mind of a demon (using the man’s human body as a vessel) kneeling down on his knees in front of Jesus, putting both his hands up in a “I surrender” position and DESPERATELY PLEADING with Jesus to NOT be tormented!

And it was THAT mental imagery in my mind which served as a VERY POWERFUL force of spiritual understanding within my spirit! For just like a human person might hold both their hands up in a “I surrender, I don’t want any trouble” position if there was a gunman who was threatening their VERY LIFE, so did THE DEMON likely do in the presence of Jesus! WOW! PROFOUND!

So therefore, what can we gather from these 3 passages in the bible? Answer: DEMONS **FEAR** JESUS! That’s right…..out-right **FEAR HIM!** So it stands to reason: If DEMONS fear Jesus, how much more does SATAN fear Jesus? Answer: Likely a whole HECK of alot! Why? Because he simply KNOWS that he’s powerless against Him, amongst many other things! Which then even further stands to reason: If SATAN and DEMONS actually **FEAR JESUS**, (despite any major “anger issues” they might have AGAINST Jesus), then why should WE, as born-again Christians/Messianic Jewish-roots Christians FEAR **THEM?** It stands to reason!

There’s yet another bible passage that I’d like to share, which is Matthew 10:28 [New Testament, Book of Matthew, Verse 28] which states: “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”.

In other words, don’t FEAR the spirits and/or the people that have the ability to “kill you” since they ONLY have “ability” to kill your BODY, ONLY but NOT your soul…..Instead, you should FEAR GOD/JESUS since ONLY GOD/JESUS has the power to “kill” both your BODY ***AND*** your soul in hell and/or the lake of fire! OUCH! Therefore, in hindsight, the Matthew 10:28 passage is telling us in NO uncertain terms whom/what we SHOULD and SHOULD **NOT** fear, in the “biblical sense!”

Too many Christians today FEAR! Rather it’s FEAR of “workplace issues”, FEAR of the future, etc. But what they oftentimes don’t realize (myself included, sometimes) is that SATAN AND DEMONS are the driving force BEHIND that “FEAR!” And as long as we don’t have any “idols” or “demonic objects” in our homes (ouija boards, tarot cards, New Age and/or metal music, carved images, witchcraft-themed movies, books, etc.), we have POWER & AUTHORITY in the name of Christ to REBUKE THAT DEMONIC SPIRIT/THOSE DEMONIC SPIRITS OF FEAR!

But yet, here’s the sad reality. As long as a “Christian” has demonic “objects” in their possession, OR consume them (such as movies and TV shows), Satan/demons have the LEGAL spiritual “right” to RULE OVER THEM (**UNTIL** said object is REMOVED or said consumption is FULLY REPENTED OF)! Sad but true! Many Christians today have demonic objects in their home and don’t even know it!

For example, many think that Harry Potter books or movies are “harmless!” And yet others at some point (myself included) attempted to “justify” their watching of “Witchcraft-themed shows” (like Salem for instance) telling themselves that they’re just spiritually educating themselves about the Enemy Satan, so they know how he “works” in the Kingdom of Darkness, etc.!

Folks, let me tell you something. I MYSELF made the mistake of watching some of the “Salem” TV series on Netflix (LONG BEFORE the Netflix BAN was needed on the part of many Christians!) And I even tried to justify it to myself, telling myself that it was somehow OK to watch the show, IF I was only doing it from a “get-myself-educated-on-the-schemes-and-workings-of-the-Devil” type of way!

But BOY WAS I MISTAKEN! Not long after I started watching the 1st episode, I had an “ungodly spirit” that invaded my home! A dark shadow! It oftentimes “slightly” shook the end of my bed at night while I was trying to sleep! It would follow me into the bathroom and would sometimes abruptly make the shower curtain rod fall on me whenever I tried to use the toilet or take a shower! It terrified my cat(s) at night and made them “growl” and “hiss” for absolutely no reason! I’d go out in the hallway and would see my cat(s) growling and hissing at “shadows that weren’t there!”

And at first, I’ll admit, I was in a bit of denial. I mean, you hear about invasion of demonic spirits in movies and on certain TV shows. But not ONCE as a Christian do you EVER think that it will come to YOUR house for something so small as watching a Witchcraft-themed TV show (even if only for “education of how the Enemy works” purposes!)

I honestly thought at the time that if the Lord Jesus KNEW MY heart and KNEW I wasn’t even “remotely” interested in Witchcraft, but that I only wanted to gain a better understanding of HOW the Enemy works, that I’d somehow be “OK” and that demonic spirits would NOT be allowed to enter into my home! But I was WRONG! After about a week or so of “the attacks” and attempting to rebuke the spirit in the name of Christ but getting no results, I asked it outloud one time during one of its “attacks”: “WHY DO YOU KEEP TORMENTING ME?”, and it hissed out (just like a snake) ONE word and one word ONLY: SALEM!”

And that’s when I knew it was the UNGODLY TV-show by that same name that was GIVING this “demonic spirit” the legal spiritual RIGHT to invade my home. And so then when I personally inquired to Jesus about WHY He had allowed this “dark, demonic spirit” to invade my home, and “attack me”, Jesus informed me that it was actually for my own benefit, so THAT I would learn the hard way the TOTAL SPIRITUAL DANGER that goes along with watching ANY type of program that has a “positive view” of Witchcraft in it! NO CHRISTIAN – MYSELF INCLUDED – SHOULD BE WATCHING **ANY** TYPE OF PROGRAM OR MOVIE LIKE THAT – **EVEN IF** IT’S ONLY TO “GET EDUCATED ON THE ENEMY!”

Thankfully, my experience eventually came to a “safe ending”. Once I realized just how SATANIC the show was, (and how it very likely portrayed ACTUAL SATANISM), I IMMEDIATELY stopped watching the Series, I prayed to Jesus for forgiveness, and vowed to never watch a single episode of THAT or any OTHER show LIKE that, EVER, EVER AGAIN! And just like that, the DEMONIC SPIRIT was GONE! No more “end of bed shaking” in the middle of the night, no more shower curtain rod violently falling on me in the bathroom, no more terrified growling & hissing cat(s) in the middle of the night, etc!

Now, I have to make an honest confession, here. Did I somewhat “fear” the “demonic spirit” that kept attacking me, while it was attacking me? At first, I did a little, yeah. Why? Because I didn’t know WHY it was there. I didn’t think at first that there was ANY reason FOR it to be there in my home! And see folks, that’s where ALOT of problems with our spiritual walk with Christ can come in…….when we DON’T have our “full spiritual thinking caps” on and in our “leisure time”: For THAT is the time when we are MOST vulnerable to falling victim to Satan’s devices and he KNOWS it!

Now, if “I”, a teacher of God’s Written Word, can fall that easily to something like that (telling myself that it was OK since I was ONLY watching it to gain more understanding of HOW the Enemy works against believers, etc.), how much easier would it be for a non-teacher of God’s Written Word to fall that easily for something like that? FOLKS, WE MUST REMAIN ON **FULL SPIRITUAL GUARD** AT **ALL TIMES** AND IN **ALL PLACES!”** (And believe me, that goes just as much for ME as it does for anyone else who’s a believer in Jesus!)

But I tell ya, folks: Two of Satan’s MOST BIGGEST spiritual battlegrounds against born-again Christians today is at home/among non-believing family members and THE WORKPLACE! Because if you’re working at a workplace where hardly NOBODY is a bible-believing, bible-adhering Christian, it’s going to get harder & harder to adhere to Christ and his gospel as the years roll by in SUCH a “place!” SO HOLD FAST TO THE FAITH!

The non-believers (or rather, the demonic spirits residing INSIDE the hearts, souls and MINDS of unbelievers) are constantly “testing you”, constantly “sizing you up”, and/or “waiting for you to FAIL!” And this could be manifested in any NUMBER of ways……..They or a manager might attempt to micromanage you, they might try to get you to participate in the “latest gossip”, they might tempt you to work on the sabbath or give you more work than they know that you can do at any one given time and then criticize you when you fail, etc.  

So folks, BE CAREFUL! BE ON YOUR FULL SPIRITUAL GUARD AT ALL TIMES! I can’t emphasize that ENOUGH!!!!!!!! Especially since these “unsaved coworkers” don’t yet even KNOW that they’re being spiritually deceived by demons in all of those things! So pray for them, pray for them, pray for them and don’t ever STOP praying for them folks, MARK MY WORDS! And pray for yourselves as well, since we all know it’s very easy to be “swayed” by coworkers. 

But going back to my main point: Satan/Demons FEAR the name of Jesus! Therefore, why should WE, as as born-again Christians, fear THEM? It stands to reason! For WHEN we fear Satan and/or demons, we are, in all actuality, fearing beings that FEAR JESUS! Now think about that. Truly sit back and think about that for awhile. Let that thought ruminate for a bit in your mind. Because if we FEAR demonic beings that FEAR JESUS, what does that say about US as so-called “born-again believers?”

If there’s ever a time in our lives when we fear Satan, fear demons and/or fear persecution, we’re doing it wrong! That means that something is missing in our spiritual “walk” with Christ! Because NO Christian with the correct, FULL spiritual armour is going to fear the Devil or Demons! (Not for ANY reason!) Instead, they will laugh in Satan’s or the demon’s face whenever they “make threats” and loudly and boldly proclaim: “I rebuke you in the name of Christ, now GO!” without any problems or hesitations! In fact, they will KNOW that they know that Christ has their back, no matter what and they need NOT fear!

Are YOU at the place in your life right now where you have ZERO fear of Satan, demons and/or the future? If not, WHY? And if not, what sorts of steps must you take to NOT be afraid anymore, in the name of Jesus? What it help you to know that Jesus HIMSELF was afraid in the Garden of Gethsemane when he KNEW he’d be facing “human death” for the first time?

And yet, even IN SPITE OF HIS FEAR, he STILL trusted the Heavenly Father? If Jesus could still trust the Heavenly Father during HIS time of trial & tribulation (and FEAR) on the Earth, then so can WE also trust Jesus (who OVERCAME death & the grave) during OUR times of trials and tribulations on the Earth, right folks? IT’S THAT SIMPLE!

Isaiah 41:10 proclaims: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness while John 16:33 states: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world“.

In other words, Jesus is telling us here that WHATEVER scary situation we might face in life (being fired from our jobs, a severe medical diagnosis, a death, a traumatic event, severe persecution, etc.), we do NOT need to worry since Jesus IS IN CONTROL OF IT ALL! He’s got the power of the UNIVERSE at his fingertips! He created the universe with just the mere sound of his VOICE!

Therefore, is He REALLY gonna create the universe with just the mere sound of his voice (“Let there be light”, etc.) and then scratch his head in confusion over how to help us deal with OUR life’s “treacherous situations?” OFCOURSE NOT! Jesus KNOWS what he’s doing, no matter what, so we got to remember that, folks! Even though I know sometimes that’s easier said than done. I know it’s “hard” to trust Christ in times of SEVERE TURMOIL in our lives! I know many Christians have the “why me” type questions whenever something bad happens. Just like I KNOW how hard it is to believe that Jesus is CONSTANTLY working things out for the BEST for us that are believers in HIM!

But one thing I DO know is THIS: Jesus is faithful and TRUE! And not once has he EVER, EVER, **EVER** let me down! NOT ONCE! He has ALWAYS and FOREVER been there for me! It is ME that hasn’t always been there for HIM the way I should at various small points in my life! But thankfully for me and for ALL of us, he is a loving and JUST God, who FORGIVES US FOR ALL OUR SINS! We might as feel at times as though Jesus has forgotten about us on this “Earth rock” down here, but believe me, he hasn’t! It’s US who forget HIM!

We as Christians (as a whole) tend to sometimes get slightly “lukewarm” in our faith at certain times in our lives! When severe persecution bears us down and makes us feel exhausted and drained of energy, temporarily giving up seems like the most EASIEST  & most CONVENIENT thing to do! But folks, we can NOT give up! Not NOW! Not EVER! ESPECIALLY IN THESE HERE LAST DAYS OF HUMAN HISTORY! WE ARE THE LAST GENERATION, FOLKS! https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/11/we-are-the-last-generation-biblical-proof/

We are the last “100% human species” on this Earth! By the time our children grow up into their 20’s, true 100% humans will be a thing of the past and “cyborgs” will be THE NORM! Quite sobering to think about, isn’t it folks? Yet Jesus says we do NOT need to fear for the future, our salvation is certain (provided we still believe, trust AND obey him and do NOT take The Mark of the Beast for ANY circumstances!)

Jesus Christ HIMSELF tells us in Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”. So lets unpack this a bit. First off, Jesus is telling us NOT to fear. And then the 2nd part is even more beautiful than the 1st part; Jesus is telling us that God DELIGHTS in rewarding us “eternal life” in his “eternal heavenly kingdom”. Therefore, if we DELIGHT in the Lord Jesus AND in obeying him, then someday, the Heavenly Father will DELIGHT in US! What a splendid thought, folks! 

Also: If you have FEAR in ANY area of your life and/or spiritual walk with Christ, WRITE IT DOWN! Then read a scripture in the bible about Jesus overcoming demons, etc. Then go back and read your list and ask yourself if your “fear” is justified! My guess is that it WON’T be, in your mind or heart! However, if you’re STILL unsure rather your “fear” is justified or not, PRAY TO JESUS ABOUT IT! (The most easiest, yet, most OVERLOOKED solution to ANY problem we might have today – PRAYER!) And whatever person, thing or object you fear, fill in the blank with said person, object or thing in the prayer down below!

Pray the following: “Jesus, I fear ________. I’m not sure WHY I fear ______ but I do. I’m not sure what to do about ________. But I know that you DO know what to do about _________ and my FEAR of it! So please Jesus, help me overcome my fear of __________. And make it to the point where someday soon, I will LAUGH at my initial fear of ________ and will fully realize that Satan is a LIAR! Please help me realize that my fear of ________ comes from a DEMONIC SPIRIT and that in YOUR heavenly name, I have authority OVER said “spirit”.

P.S.: Please also reveal to me if there’s any demonic objects in my car or home that are “allowing” the spirit of FEAR to “fester” in my life/home/workplace and help me to GET RID of those objects, if so! Please help give me the necessary tools to get RID of the SPIRIT of FEAR and have it leaving me/my home/my workplace IN NO TIME! Please instead REPLACE the spirit of FEAR in my life with YOUR Holy Spirit, THE SPIRIT OF FAITH AND OF TRUTH! I say this in your heavenly name, Jesus! Amen!” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AADHAAR: Mark of the Beast Comes to INDIA: (Mark of the Beast, PART FIVE)

If you haven’t done so already, please read my following FOUR blog posts, as they will help to better explain in much broader detail about what this current FIFTH blog post is talking about, concerning The Mark of the Beast “System”! They are ALL part of a Mark of The Beast “Series”, listed IN ORDER! They can be found HERE:

1). https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/25/the-last-final-temptation-of-mankind/

2). https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/27/the-seal-of-god-vs-the-mark-of-satan/

3). https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/08/mark-of-the-beast-foreshadowing/

4). https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/29/chinas-social-credit-score-coming-to-a-town-near-you/

The current post you’re now seeing is PART FIVE of the 5-Part Series! And it ofcourse centers around what’s now happening in INDIA! Basically, INDIA’S version of the “Social Credit Score” is much, much worse! Imagine for a minute if China’s Social Credit Score (in and of itself) was “high on crack” and that’s pretty much what INDIA’S version of it is! Basically, if you thought CHINA’S version was bad, just wait until you hear about INDIA’S version of “The Social Credit Score!”

Here is both a Christian video commentary AND an official India government website that better explain India’s version of it in more detail: [Please note: the “Hindu-run” India government website down below the video does NOT talk about the ETERNAL SPIRITUAL DANGERS of AADHAAR and tries to tout it off as a “good thing!” SO BEWARE, FOLKS!]

https://uidai.gov.in/

But folks, one thing is certain. In China, a low social credit score means you can’t fly out of the country, board a train, attend prestigious universities or do many OTHER things!

Although right now, China is trying to tout it off as a “humanistic approach”, or claiming to encourage “better human and/or consumer *behavior* in China”. For example, it’s a “point system” where you can get “negative points” for:

  • Jaywalking
  • Not paying bills on time
  • Smoking in a non-smoking area
  • Bad driving and/or not stopping in front of crosswalks
  • Trying to ride trains with no tickets
  • Spending too long playing video games
  • Having high credit card debt?
  • Wasting money on frivolous purchases
  • Posting on social media (negative things about gov’t)
  • Friends/family members of your posting or saying negative things about Gov’t
  • Refusing to serve in the military
  • Fraud or embezzlement
  • Spreading fake news
  • ETC.

So sure, on the “surface”, the “Social Credit Score” might seem like a “good thing”. But over time, it will become more and more “Orwellian”. Now….. for those of you who don’t know what I mean by that statement, please read the book entitled “1984” by George C. Orwell that was published in June of 1949! Yes, the book was written a long time ago but interestingly enough, you’d think it was written just a couple of years ago since practically almost everything Orwell talked about in that book CAME TRUE in just the last few years! WOW! You can buy it here on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/1984-Signet-Classics-George-Orwell/dp/0451524934?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_1

Therefore, China’s “Social Credit Score” starts out “innocently enough” and then gets more and more invasive and “Orwellian” over time. But INDIA’s Social Credit Score system (called AADHAAR) by comparison, is far, far worse! Because INDIA’s “Social Credit Score” system seems to NOT ONLY be based on “behavior” but on behavior, finances AND loyalty of the Gov’t/Gov’t System!

Here’s a list of things that are “tied in” to the AADHAAR system:

  • A 12-digit number
  • Banking
  • Travel/Passports
  • Purchases
  • Bill Payments
  • Medical Payments
  • All Personal Document Information
  • Voter Card Linking
  • Monthly Pension
  • Digital Life Certificate
  • Mobile Number
  • Driver’s License
  • Investments
  • Existing Bank Account Holders
  • Proof of Address & Identity
  • PAN Card & It Return (whatever that means?)
  • ETC.

And according to ANOTHER India website (http://vikaspedia.in/e-governance/online-citizen-services/government-to-citizen-services-g2c/all-about-aadhaar/17-benefits-of-aadhaar-card), here is what the “proponents” of AADHAAR have to say about it:

“Aadhaar program was launched with a main objective to provide **UNIVERSAL IDENTITY** to every Indian resident. People can now get the card with much ease as its acceptance as a mandatory document for various initiatives has been officially made. In addition to this it will help in reducing the corruption since every individual carries only **ONE UNIQUE NUMBER**.

Considering the increasing acceptance of Aadhaar card it is must for everyone to get it issued. It is believed that the card will further be given more importance as more and more government *schemes* are being launched requiring it as a MANDATORY DOCUMENT“.

Did you read that, folks? They want every Indian citizen to have a UNIVERSAL I.D.! And they will each have ONE UNIQUE NUMBER! And this “SYSTEM” will eventually be MANDATORY!

Now remember folks: The Devil (Satan) wants to STEAL, KILL & DESTROY! The last book of the bible, Revelation, says that “Satan is angry and knows he has but a short time”. In other words, Satan is ANGRY with ALL of mankind BECAUSE he knows that he has a VERY short amount of time before he and his army are DEFEATED by Jesus and Jesus’s heavenly army DURING The Battle of Armageddon! Therefore, Satan KNOWS he must get in as MUCH spiritual deception into the world and INTO as many people’s HEARTS/BRAINS as he possibly can “while he still has time!” That’s WHY things on the Earth are getting eviler and eviler and eviler BY THE DAY!

So now think about this, folks. Really, truly think about this. IF you are (or theoretically were) a Chinese citizen today living in CHINA, and don’t think that “communism” is such a good thing AND you were a “Christian”, you would (or will soon be getting) a VERY LOW “Social Credit Score” in NO TIME! Are you prepared to handle that? Can you and/or your family deal with that? Is your faith in Christ STRONG ENOUGH to WITHSTAND the “Social Credit System” and any consequences that come from “getting a LOW SCORE?” I pray that it IS!

And IF you are (or theoretically were) an Indian citizen living today in INDIA, you would soon (or will soon) discover that NOT enrolling in the Biometric AADHAAR System will soon put YOU and/or your family at “odds” with the India Gov’t! And WHEN and IF that happens, AND you are a “Christian” (part of the Indian MINORITY), can you just IMAGINE what’s gonna happen to you (as a Christian and/or as a “Gov’t Resister?”) Are YOU and/or your family prepared to deal with the CONSEQUENCES? Is your faith in Christ STRONG ENOUGH TO RESIST the AADHAAR SYSTEM? I pray that it IS!

My brothers and sisters in Christ (all around the world), you MUST understand THIS: No ONE country is going to NAME the Mark of the Beast “Mark of the Beast”. That would make things too easy! Too many people would know and catch on as to what it is! Satan KNOWS this! Therefore, they will “name it” SOMETHING ELSE! China calls it “The Social Credit Score”, India calls it the “AADHAAR SYSTEM”. America, Europe, U.K., & Canada may call it the “UNIVERSAL I.D. System”. But folks, the PRINCIPLE behind the system will still be the same: ABSOLUTE GLOBAL DOMINATION OF ALL THE EARTH’S INHABITANTS BY *ONE UNIFIED, UNIVERSAL SYSTEM!*

Here’s YET ANOTHER interesting aspect that alot of people haven’t mentioned. All of the “DATA” from both China’s Social Credit Score System AND from India’s AADHAAR Systems (according to my best intellectual and spiritual understanding) will be sent to the U.N. (United Nations!) Which isn’t really surprising since the U.N. is ALL ABOUT “Global Governance” (more about that later).

But folks, that’s really quite telling. In the “Left Behind” novels by Tim LaHaye & Jerry Jenkins, there is a “Global Force” called G.C. (standing for Global Community), which I believe was based off the actual U.N.! So in light of that, it’s interesting that all of the DATA shall be sent to the U.N.! Now…….for those of you who are wondering, where is the U.N. main headquarters located? I’m glad you asked! It’s located in New York, New York (United States). But there’s other “branches” of the U.N. that meet in other parts of the world (like in Switzerland, for instance). More about that later, as well.

The novel “1984” by British author George Orwell calls the government “Big Brother”. And on the most used slogans in the book says, “Big Brother Is Watching You”. And it’s almost like Mr. Orwell could see the future. Because most recently, the American gov’t got in cahoots with the American people over it’s NSA (Natural Security Agency) spying program (thanks to the whistle blower Edward Snowden).

But here’s what’s interesting though. Almost every country of the world likely has its OWN version of “NSA”; each country just calls it something different. But in fact, many people in the world have wondered WHY there is such a need for such “total surveillance” of its citizens. One can see “cameras” now, out in public, almost everywhere, especially in grocery stores, banks and roadways.

Most people are told Oh, all the cameras are just for security purposes only, in order to cut down on crime. And while the notion of a surveillance state doesn’t seem all that bad on the surface, (afterall, there DOES seem to be a rising crime rate in almost every country of the world, now) the “global elite” have a much more “sinister agenda” in mind……total surveillance and control of all of its citizens (even the “homeless ones”, if you can believe it). In fact, I could even imagine them going so far as to eventually place secret spy drones in American “Amish” or global “indigenous communities”. They want to leave NO corner of the Earth untouched and “non-surveilled”.

And while many of the “global governance programs” APPEAR to have humanity’s best interests at heart on the surface, like I said, behind these programs is a “weapon of deceit”. These global leaders are no doubt BLINDED BY SATAN and Satan’s Agenda of “worldwide dominance”. In fact, most people of the world today don’t even REALIZE that Satan HIMSELF is the “driving force” behind CERN, “dark matter”, and A.I. Technology like “Sophia”, etc.

In fact, in many ways, Satan kind’ve reminds me of Absalom (David’s “vain son” who wanted to be King IN PLACE OF DAVID). He was prideful, arrogant, thought he was better than David, sought to usurp David and David’s position, etc. And he’d sit outside the town gate and “rally the people”. He’d find out what they didn’t like about being David’s subjects and promised to give them “better leadership” and “better outcomes”. In other words, Absalom had them thinking that HE, Absalom had THEIR best interests in mind. But in reality, he only wanted glory for HIMSELF, *NOT* for any of THEM, he was just USING them for HIS own gain!

And so it is with Satan! Because once Satan gets done USING these global leaders and all who worship him to achieve his ultimate goal(s), he won’t have any use of them anymore and will swiftly abandon them! Only, most of those folks will realize that fact TOO LATE! Because like I’ve said in SEVERAL posts before, ONCE A PERSON TAKES THE MARK OF THE BEAST, THAT’S IT, THEY’RE FINISHED, THEY’RE DONE, GAME OVER, THEY’VE LOST THEIR SOULS FOR ETERNITY AND THERE’S NO ETERNAL HOPE FOR THEM ANYMORE, THEY’LL BE SENT TO BURN IN THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR ETERNITY, WITH **NO WAY OUT***, FOREVER & EVER.

Many people wonder how Satan so successfully got 1/3 of the Angels to rebel. Look no further than in the biblical account of David Vs. Absalom and it will all become very apparent. Just like many people wonder how Absalom so successfully got the people to rebel against David. Same way Satan successfully got 1/3 of the Angels to rebel. Same principle, same model, same modus operandi (mode of operation). Chillingly enough, both Absalom and Satan had MANY things in common. I cringe, just to think about it! In fact, here’s all the similarities:

  • They were the “favorite” (Pre-Satan was God’s favorite angel – BEFORE the fall – just like Absalom was David’s favorite son!)
  • Both were given “extremely high honor”
  • Both were “extremely handsome” (Note: Pre-Satan was only “beautiful” BEFORE the fall but NOT AFTER!)
  • Both were “prideful and arrogant”
  • Both were “rebellious”
  • Both tried to “usurp higher authority”
  • Both tried lies, pressure & manipulation to get their way
  • Both were CURSED after their “fall from grace”

But folks, how many “Absaloms” (Absalom-like people) or “Delilahs” (Delilah-like people) have you known in your life? Someone that “appears” to have your best interests at heart but yet, doesn’t really? Because they’re only looking out for their OWN neck and not YOURS? [Note: The Delilah I speak of is Old Testament Delilah – the Philistine woman who took down Samson!] And you oftentimes didn’t find that out UNTIL it was “too late?” And by then, the collateral damage was DONE?

Folks, that’s what many of today’s U.N. government heads are like. They “appear” to have our best interests in mind. But behind closed doors, what every country’s government TRULY wants is “global governance”. Ofcourse, the average global citizen isn’t quite “up” for that just yet, so that’s WHY the global elite has to use “media events”, “social media”, “TV”, “music”, “movies”, “books”, “radio”, “news”, “the entertainment industry”, “colleges and universities”, “magazines and newspapers” etc. to try to SHAPE OUR GLOBAL VIEWPOINT!

Several years ago, hardly nobody liked the U.N. and many saw it as an “evil organization”. Fast forward to 2018 and it now seems like more and more people are starting to see the U.N. as a “good thing”, a “humanitarian thing”, something that actually “benefits mankind”. And in some ways, the U.N. (ironically enough) DOES benefit mankind. But for the most part, there is always “the agenda BEHIND the agenda” and most people aren’t told of that or they’re too busy watching the latest TV show or movie to pay it much attention and that’s exactly what Satan and the global elite are banking on! MARK MY WORDS!

Now on to my next “spiel”. The United States of America {and possibly a few other countries} (as far as I know) are now working on a program called “ID 2020” or the “RealID”. And it has to do with “Biometrics”. And from my best understanding, this “RealI.D.” will be tied in to everything from Driver’s Licenses, Passports, and eventually, into banking and jobs, more than likely. Now, am I saying that “RealI.D.” IS the “Mark of the Beast” in America? No, not necessarily but I can definitely see it as a PRECURSOR to such! 

But yet, ONE thing is apparent through ALL of this, folks! ALL governments of the world eventually want a CASHLESS SOCIETY! Why? So they can then make ALL the money of the world DIGITAL, into a global, centralized “one world government order” DATABASE! “Okay, so how can we can DELAY THAT, then?”, some may be asking. How? Simple. BY STARTING TO PAY FOR EVERYTHING IN CASH! And then, if cash paying BECOMES A COMEBACK (specifically, a GLOBAL COMEBACK), then states and governments of the world will have NO CHOICE but to “DELAY” the “ELECTRONIC/DIGITAL SYSTEM”, more than likely!  

Because folks, let me tell you something. Once a state, city-state and/or country DOES go COMPLETELY “cash-free”, and ALL cash is “doing away with”, the people and citizens OF that state, city, city-state and/or land/government/province lose ALL the personal financial power in their lives and the personal financial power is then COMPLETELY shifted over TO the “gov’t authorities” (specifically, the global governing authorities). Do you see what I mean by that, folks? Do you see where I’m going with this at all?

I DO apologize though, in hindsight, for writing SO MANY POSTS about this subject, folks! I know that some of you are probably getting tired of hearing about it and of my writing about it SO VERY MUCH! But people as a whole are just SO unprepared for all of this (ESPECIALLY non-Christian people!) And they need to know THE TRUTH, THE REALITY of such things! 

Heck, even many “minority” Christians THEMSELVES living in “majority-Hindu India” or “majority-communist China” right now don’t yet see “AADHAAR” or “The Social Credit Score” as any real spiritual “threat” to them, as I’m told by another source that their “Christian minority church leaders” (as a whole) are NOT warning them of such End Times Dangers! Folks, that’s sad! Because if India’s or China’s Christian minority church leaders take the issue so lightly, can you IMAGINE just how LIGHTLY their “American, Canadian, South American, and European” counterparts” will take it, as well? 

Folks, we’re seeing “SIGNS” of the soon unveiling OF the “Mark of the Beast/Mark of the Beast System” and OF the soon unveiling of *THE ANTICHRIST* **all around us** in today’s world! Are YOU paying attention, folks? Are YOUR family and friends and coworkers paying attention? If not, time to start PAYING ATTENTION, folks! Signs of the times are ALL AROUND US! Not JUST of the soon coming global economic collapse, but several other things, too. 

IF Jesus Christ were to return to the Earth today, would YOU be ready? Would the ones that were close to you be ready? If not, WHY? And if not, then time to PRAY TO BE READY and “worthy” in the Lord’s site, folks! Cause time won’t delay any longer, the Lord’s Wrath upon the Earth won’t delay any longer! 

Jesus, I pray for all the citizens of China and India and the world beyond. And if a soul isn’t yet ready for you, Lord, I pray that you will MAKE that soul ready for you! I pray that you will OPEN UP PEOPLE’S SPIRITUAL EYES as to what’s REALLY going on, behind the world’s stage and that you will lift MANY lukewarm Christians OUT OF THEIR *SPIRITUAL SLUMBER!* Also: Please give ALL Christians of the world the KNOWLEDGE and the STRENGTH to *ENDURE TILL THE END!* Amen“. 

 

 

China’s “Social Credit Score”: Coming To A Town Near YOU! (Mark of the Beast, Part FOUR)

Hello all! My last SEVERAL posts have had to do with The Mark of the Beast and/or Artificial Technology! And that’s because we’re ever SO MUCH CLOSER to when the Mark of the Beast and the new “Mark of the Beast SOCIETY” will be unveiled! In fact, it even sends chills up my spine to think about just HOW MUCH CLOSER we are to that time! I pray that myself and ALL OTHERS will be PREPARED for that time for it’ll come here IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE!

Now, for those of you who haven’t yet heard yet or are unaware, things over in China are now “heating up” for The Mark of the Beast “System!” They now have over there in China (I kid you NOT) what’s called a “Social Credit Score!”

Basically, this is not a FINANCIAL Credit Score but a “SOCIAL” Credit Score! Let me explain. The Communist Gov’t of China wants to know just how “loyal” to Communism/The Communist Gov’t that average, everyday Chinese citizens are. And their “Social Credit Score” is based on precisely HOW loyal the are to the Chinese Gov’t! (Folks, is that CREEPY or what!?)

Anyways, the more “loyal” a Chinese citizen is to the Chinese Gov’t/Communism, the more “higher” their “Social Credit Score” is and the more “rights” and “privileges” they have, such as the right to “fly/travel out of the country”, etc.! Can you BELIEVE it, folks? And ofcourse, the “less” loyal a Chinese citizen is “deemed” to be to the Chinese Gov’t/Communism (no wonder HOW well of a “citizen” that person has been up until THIS POINT), the LESS “rights” and “privileges” they have! (IT’S A TOTALLY DRACONIAN SOCIETY, FOLKS!)

What’s ALSO interesting to note about China is that China has now cracked down pretty hard lately on “Christians” and “Christian churches”. [But yet, Christianity is “exploding in secret numbers” in China right now! That’s WHY the Chinese Gov’t is so fearful of Christians/the sheer RISE of number in them!) And the “Social Credit Score” is just a FURTHER way by which to persecute, imprison and ostracize Chinese Christians living in China!

Here, Anita Fuentes of the End Times ministry called “Open Your Eyes People/EMOAF” [not MY ministry, just to specify] gives an EXCELLENT & INFORMATIVE “sermonette” on the matter (and also talks about what’s going on over in India – as it pertains to the Mark of the Beast – China’s next door neighbor, geographic-wise):

 

“ABC News Australia” ALSO did an excellent segment on the subject:

 

Some say that it’s not yet fully implemented, yet. However, all the staggering “signs” are there, already! They got the tech, they got the “know how”. They’ve probably even ALREADY have got all the “logistics algorithms” (i.e. A.I. computer programming) into place. The ONLY thing they’re waiting on (I imagine) is THE GREEN LIGHT! (The Green Light ofcourse being THE “Green Light” that THE ANTICHRIST gives them!)

Lets face it, folks. The elite of EVERY world country very likely ALREADY gots “The Mark of the Beast” System up and ready to go. Yet, they are ALL waiting on ONE thing – THE GREEN LIGHT BY THE ANTICHRIST! Because UNTIL that Green Light is given, they have NO POWER OR AUTHORITY to act before HIS “OK!” (And indirectly – ironically enough – by waiting on The “Antichrist’s” Green Light, they’re actually also indirectly waiting on God’s Green Light, as well!)

You see, the Antichrist can’t really do anything outside of Satan’s will just like Satan can’t do anything outside of God’s will! (Note: please read “The Book of Job” in the Old Testament for more information, if you want or need to get a much richer understanding of God’s power vs. Satan’s “limited power!”)

China (and India) are no doubt some of the leaders in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (and especially when it comes to *unleashing it* on their citizens!) China is a Communist country…….it probably started out as a Socialist country…….and then went right on over to Communism……And ironically enough, that’s honestly what many Democrats want to do to the country of America………turn it into a SOCIALIST COUNTRY! Forget personal property rights! Forget individual rights! The Gov’t would then own EVERYTHING! (Pretty scary to think about, isn’t it, folks!)

So why are we now talking about “Democrats” on a “religious God-fearing blog?” Because the Democrats (as a whole) want to turn this American country into China, into Cuba, into Venezuela! And with erosion of property rights and personal rights also go RELIGIOUS RIGHTS! But again, isn’t that what Mark of the Beast and Mark of the Beast SOCIETY is ALL ABOUT? The EROSION of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS and the TOTAL INCREASE BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS OF ALL **GOV’T RIGHTS?**

OFCOURSE all the Ocasio-Cortezs’ and Bernie Sanders’ of the Democrats want Socialism……..THEY are a part of the Gov’t, therefore, THEIR paycheck or individual and/or property rights won’t be affected! But OURS **will**, if Socialism ever truly takes root in this country of America! (That’s why it’s ever so important to VOTE REPUBLICAN on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at the U.S. Mid-term Elections! To make sure that RELIGIOUS LIBERTY REIGNS!)

But going back to the subject of the Antichrist and China’s “Social Credit Score”. Folks, other countries of the world already have THEIR VERSION OF IT! Do you honestly think that YOUR COUNTRY (be it whatever country of the world it might be, outside of China or India) is IMMUNE? HA! Your country (be it whatever country outside of China or India it might be) likely already has its OWN form of “logistic algorithms” (i.e. computer programming) in place! FACEBOOK no doubt plays a HUGE ROLE in all of this! FACEBOOK IS SO DEEPLY ENGRAVED IN A.I. THAT IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY!

And someday soon, my guess is that THOSE in China with a low “Social Credit Score” will NOT be able to access their “Facebook” or ANY FORM OF SOCIAL MEDIA! Welcome to “The New World”, folks! And believe me, what’s happening over in China right now is JUST THE VERY BEGINNING! Jesus is actually showing US, up close and personal, about what the “experience” of The Mark of the Beast society will BE LIKE, since like I’ve said in SEVERAL blog posts of most recently, The Mark of the Beast is JUST AROUND THE CORNER!

Many Christians are in denial today and think that “The Social Credit Score” can’t happen to THEM/their country! But they need to start thinking AGAIN! For what starts off in China WILL SOON SPREAD OUT TO OTHER COUNTRIES! The elite has just started putting everything out in the open and doesn’t even try to hide anything anymore! And the sad thing is that most people – specifically Christians – are STILL unaware!

Now, will ONE country’s version of “The Social Credit Score” be exactly the same as ANOTHER country’s version of it? Only time will tell. But the end results will be exactly the same, regardless: individual and religious rights will be taken away so that “Big Brother” (Gov’t) will GAIN all “rights” over the people!

But folks, we got to start preparing! Because actually LIVING in the “Mark of the Beast Society” will NOT be easy, not by a LONG-SHOT! In fact, it will likely be THE MOST DIFFICULT THING IN LIFE THAT YOU OR I HAVE EVER DONE IN THE ENTIRETY OF OUR  EXISTENCE! The PRESSURE to take the Mark of the Beast and/or to try to maintain a “good Social Credit Score” will be SO GREAT! The TEMPTATION will be SO VERY NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO TEARS!

In fact, I can picture it NOW, even: Some Christians will be SO TEMPTED to take The Mark of the Beast for a “Good Social Credit Score” and to “get privileges” (such as traveling, buying and selling, etc.) that they’ll just break down and CRY! And then, when they and their children are not able to buy food and they just start “physically starving” (IF they start physically starving, that is), their body will likely become “sickly” and “malnourished”. And it is THEN that the temptation to take he Mark of the Beast will be  THE STRONGEST…….when the person is MOST PHYSICALLY WEAK!

But in fact, THAT will be the time of most “severe spiritual testing!” God wants to see if we’ll have the FAITH to endure till The End in his great, heavenly name, NO MATTER WHAT, while Satan wants to see if he can “make us crack” (i.e. create a permanent crack in the spiritual foundation that we’re supposed to have IN Christ!) Jesus ALSO wants to see if WE will have the faith that HE will provide in OUR critical time of need in the End Times!

Remember when the good Lord gave the Jewish people MANNA FROM HEAVEN during THEIR critical time of need out in the desert, a time of “severe spiritual testing?” What makes you think the good Lord will provide manna from heaven for THEM, during THEIR critical time of need, yet, totally abandon US in OUR critical time of need? Think about it, folks! The Lord NEVER CHANGES! He’s the same yesterday, tomorrow, forever! Therefore, if helped THEM during THEIR critical time of need by giving them food from heaven, the Lord will MOST CERTAINLY help his modern-day people in OUR time of need! HAVE FAITH! 

[In fact, in the following Luke 18:8 passage, Jesus “lamented” about rather or not he’d find “FAITH” on the Earth during the End Times and/or the time right before his 2nd arrival to Earth:I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?]

But folks, that’s what I mean when I say we’ve got to start preparing ourselves! We got to start fasting one day a week and start eating less, in order to prepare our bodies to “need less food”. Also as well: we must prepare ourselves SPIRITUALLY! For there will come a time, MARK MY WORDS, when ALL bibles will be BANNED, all Christian websites and churches (churches that “don’t comply with LGBT and Gov’t”, that is) will be SHUT DOWN, etc.

Do you HONESTLY think that what’s happening over in China can NOT happen here in the U.S. (or any other “Westernized country”, for that matter?) You best think again! It CAN happen and it WILL happen………..eventually! Why? Because the bible SAYS it’ll happen, that’s why!

Has the bible EVER been known to prophesy something that didn’t come true? Were ANY of the Messianic prophecies talked about in the Old Testament unfulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament? Even just ONE? The answer is a resounding NO! There’s also many people who don’t believe in Jesus, despite the fact that Jesus has been PROVEN to be an actual historical person by both non-Christian AND Christian historical accounts! [NOTE: For all you skeptics out there, please read the book entitled “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised of all the actual evidence for Jesus out there – even “secular evidence”].

But going back to both of the “segments” talking about the “Social Credit Score”. Both commentators have noted several things about it:

  • A “good score” = “rights” and “privileges”
  • A “bad score” = “rights” and “privileges” taken away
  • A “bad score” = PUNISHMENT
  • A “good score” = SACRIFICE/EROSION OF INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS IN ORDER TO “GET” A GOOD SCORE
  • Your “score” is determined by several PERSONAL factors (the way you walk on a public street, your eating/shopping habits, your social media behavior, minor traffic infractions, etc.)
  • Your “score” is determined by how much of a “puppet” for the Gov’t at large that you’re willing to be
  • The more “sacrifices” you make for the Gov’t at large, the better your “score” is
  • ONLY Conservatives/Christians get a “bad score”
  • Your “freedom” under the Social Credit System is a FALSE FREEDOM
  • Under the “Social Credit Score” system, you’re CONSTANTLY BEING MONITORED (even IF you have a “good Social credit score”

Sounds like a “paradise utopia”, doesn’t it, folks? You give up all your rights and religious freedoms to gain a “false freedom”, only to later realize that the Gov’t at large never cared about your “religious freedom” or about YOU at all? But by the time you realize it, it’s already too late! My, my, that just sounds like “paradise”, doesn’t it, folks? {Note: Please note my sarcasm, there!}

But yet, my question is THIS: Just how much closer ARE WE to getting our OWN version of The “Social Credit Score” here in America? What, you think that JUST BECAUSE Donald J. Trump’s president here, that that sort of thing can’t happen over here in America? You are sadly mistaken! Sure, Trump can somewhat try to “delay” the elite’s ungodly agenda, but he can’t ultimately thwart it! For the bible says that the Antichrist WILL succeed in his ungodly agenda towards all mankind! Even if he must take it by force! 

But again, just WHAT would the “Social Credit Score” look like in America? Here are some possible scenarios (provided it was anything similar to China’s version):

  • You would be judged/scored on what sorts of products you bought or didn’t buy on Amazon
  • You would be judged/scored on rather or not you owned (and used) an Amazon Alexa
  • You would be judged/scored on rather or not you had (and/or used) a Facebook or other form of social media
  • You would be judged/scored on the types of things you said (or didn’t say) on Facebook or other forms of social media
  • You would be judged/scored on just how “loyal” to the American Gov’t you were
  • All Conservatives/Christians would likely be given a “Bad Score” and deemed some sort of “threat” to the Gov’t
  • You would be judged/scored on rather or not you went with “the liberal narrative” or not
  • You would be CONSTANTLY MONITORED EVERY SINGLE PLACE YOU GO – RATHER AT HOME, WORK OR BEYOND (no matter WHAT your score was, but EVEN more so if you had a “Bad Score!”) 
  • ETC. 

And folks, that might not seem “too bad” NOW……..but once the FULL REALITY of that all set in, I think alot of folks would find it rather DRACONIAN! But again, it all goes back to preparedness. Just how PREPARED are you to deal with a system like THAT? 

Here is a short checklist:

  1. If the Mark of the Beast and/or Social Credit Score happened TOMORROW, would I be prepared to deal with it? Why or why not? 
  2. If I wouldn’t be prepared for it, what steps must I take to ENSURE that I’ll be prepared for it, when the times comes?
  3. Am I ready and willing to give my VERY LIFE for Christ (i.e. be tortured, imprisoned and/or murdered for my faith in Christ) if it called for it? If not, why?
  4. If I were to die today, would I know for 100% certain that I’d go to heaven to be with Jesus? If not, why?
  5. If the Mark of the Beast/Social Credit Score thing were to happen tomorrow, is my body physically trained to deal with starvation/very little food if need be? If not, then what steps do I need to take to ensure that it is?
  6. Am I spiritually AND physically ready to “endure till the End” like Jesus commanded all his followers to do? Do I have the TOTAL FAITH OF ENDURANCE IN CHRIST? If not, what MUST I do to get physically and spiritually ready to endure “till the End of human history” and/or until I die in this life (whichever comes first?) 
  7. Do I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, soul, mind and spirit; with everything that is within me? Do I obey the commandments of God – Old AND New Testaments (i.e. 7th Day Saturday biblical sabbath, biblical holidays, biblical commands) instead of the commandments of man (i.e. Pagan Sabbath, Pagan holidays, “once saved, always saved”, etc.?) If not, WHY? And what must I do in order to change this? 

Though many will no doubt look at China’s “Social Credit Score” system as “no big deal”, it IS a big deal, it’s a VERY BIG DEAL! Why? BECAUSE IT HAS LONG-TERM BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS AND IMPACT, THAT’S WHY

If you’ve not done much research into China’s Social Credit Score, I hope you soon will. Because it is DEFINITELY one of “The Mark of the Beast PRE-CURSORS/Foreshadowing!” And trust me, it’ll ONLY be a better of time before “The Social Credit Score” comes……….TO A TOWN NEAR YOU!

The “Seal of God” Vs. The “Mark of Satan” (Mark of the Beast, Part TWO):

In the bible, we read about TWO different “marks” or “seals”. One of them is the “sign” between God and his people……..[And this is talking about his “TRUE people“, NOT the people who PRETEND to be his people or the people who SAY they are his people but then turn around and do just the OPPOSITE of what God says!] And then there’s the “Mark of Satan”, which the bible calls in the book of Revelation “The Mark of the Beast”.

Both of these “marks” (God’s Mark and Satan’s Mark) are both DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT in scope and in principle but yet, they both got TWO things in common: 1). The “Promise” of Eternal Life and 2). WORSHIP!

But in order for us to get a more clearer understanding of just WHAT both of these “marks” ENTAIL, let us turn to the bible for the answer!

God’s “sign” or “seal” is mentioned in the following passages:

 

2 Timothy 2:19 “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity”

Revelation 9:4 “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads”

Ephesians 4:30 “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption”

Ephesians 1:13-14In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promiseWhich is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory”

John 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed”

Isaiah 8:16 “Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples”

Exodus 31:13-17Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is A SIGN (i.e. “SEAL”) between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: [i.e. “eternal death/condemnation”] for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. [Again, “cut off from among his people” sounds to ME like eternal death/condemnation for all those whom die in the sin of purposely profaning the 7th-day biblically-mandated Sabbath!] 

Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a PERPETUAL COVENANT [i.e. ***PERMANENTLY BINDING!***]. It is A SIGN (i.e. “SEAL”) between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed”

2 Timothy 2:19 “And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be A SIGN (i.e. SEAL) between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God”

2 Corinthians 1:22 “Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts”

Deuteronomy 6:8 “And thou shalt bind them for A SIGN [i.e. “SEAL”] upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes”

Deuteronomy 11:18 “Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for A SIGN [i.e. “SEAL”] upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes”

Revelation 14:1 “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads

Ezekiel 9:4 “And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set A MARK [ i.e. SEAL] upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof

Revelation 7:2-3And 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‘”

Song of Solomon 8:6Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame”

Hebrews 10:16-17This is THE COVENANT [i.e. “SEAL”] that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, ‘I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write themAnd their sins and iniquities will I remember no more'”

Matthew 22:37 “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” [Note: That is considered part of THE SEAL of God!]

Acts 17:10-11And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so [Note: The Berean Christians being talked about in this verse are the real-life living example of Hebrews 10:16-17!]

Ephesians 4:30 “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are SEALED unto the day of redemption

Revelation 22:4 “And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads

Ezekiel 20:20 “And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be A SIGN [i.e. SEAL] between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God”

Galatians 6:17 “From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body THE MARKS of the Lord Jesus”

1 Peter 1:5 “Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time

James 1:18 “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first-fruits of his creatures

 

While Satan’s “Mark” (The Mark of the Beast) is mentioned in THESE following passages:

 

Revelation 13:4 “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?”

Revelation 13:8 “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”

Revelation 13:16-18And 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 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 16:2 “And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image”

So what can we “conclude” from all of this? In summary, we can conclude that THE SEAL OF GOD has to do with OBEYING HIS LAW (i.e. The Sabbath, loving thy neighbor as yourself, etc.) while THE MARK OF SATAN (i.e. MARK OF THE BEAST) has to do with DISOBEYING GOD’S LAW!

However, it goes SO MUCH MORE DEEPER THAN THAT! It’s not just OBEYING God’s Law that gets us “sealed” by him but also JOY and LOVE ***IN*** the obeying OF his law (as well as love of the LAW ITSELF) that gets us “sealed” by Him and For him! If that makes any sense? In other words, we must exhibit JOYFUL OBEDIENCE, obeying Jesus BECAUSE we LOVE him and LOVE doing what’s PLEASING to him, not JUST BECAUSE we feel “merely obligated” to obey him for a mere fear of hell!

In other words, an obedience that lacks joy is obedience that’s just going through the motions! And an obedience that’s just going through the motions is likened onto a faith that’s just going through the motions! And a faith that’s just going through the motions? Lets face it folks, it’s really not much of a faith AT ALL! How would WE feel, for example, if Jesus just gave us “the bare minimum?”

Would WE feel honored, treasured or loved at all, in that theoretical example? OFCOURSE NOT! We’d think to ourselves in that theoretical scenario: “Jesus, don’t you love me AT ALL? Why are YOU, who are claiming to love ME, giving ME the *bare minimum?* Aren’t I more deserving than this? Don’t I deserve more respect and consideration than this?”

So it goes with Jesus! When we give him the *bare minimum* of faith and/or obedience, we’re really not giving him much AT ALL (in spite of EVERYTHING that He’s done for us – and that’s NOT JUST his sacrifice for the forgiveness of mankind’s sins! He’s done FAR MORE for mankind – and each individual person  – than JUST THAT! Cause lets face it, folks……how many “miracles” have you seen, experienced or heard of in your life? TONS, I’m sure! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!)

Therefore, the SEAL OF GOD has to do with OBEDIENCE! And like I said, not just ANY obedience but JOYFUL OBEDIENCE! Furthermore, if we obey God’s Law but at the same time, (secretly?) partially or fully “resent” God’s Law (in our “hearts”), then in the Lord’s eyes, we’re likely spiritually likened as the soul of an unbeliever! Why? Because the soul of the unbeliever ALSO “resents” God’s Law! Think about it, folks! Therefore, we must not only joyfully obey God’s Law but LOVE THE LAW ITSELF IN OUR MINDS, HEARTS, BODIES, SOULS AND SPIRITS!

Yet, lets face it. One can not joyfully obey God’s Law UNTIL one joyfully has LOVE OF GOD’S LAWS in one’s heart, soul and mind! We can’t just look at God’s Law as some sort of “long list of burdensome rules”. We have to look at God’s Law from the vantage point OF God’s great love for us!

In other words, God hates sin, not ONLY because it’s displeasing to him and causes us to be in danger of the judgement if we don’t repent, but also because of the mental, physical, spiritual, emotional and psychological damage that that “sin” or “those sins” DO to us, as well as those around us!

We can clearly know and see from the bible that Jesus has our “best interests” at heart when it comes to His Law! And so, when one is ABLE to see God’s love FOR us shine THROUGH his commandments? I believe that’s what the bible means in Hebrews 10:16-17 when God says: “…..I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them…….”

In other words, WHEN one loves God/Jesus AND his laws and obeying his laws in JOYFUL obedience BECAUSE they love Jesus? That, by clear definition, is one who has God’s Law “written in their minds” and “on their hearts” and is also one who is SEALED BY GOD! That is HOW and WHY one gets SEALED BY GOD!

On the OTHER hand, those who “drag their feet” when it comes to obedience are in spiritual danger of being possibly likened onto a soul that RESENTS GOD’S LAW! For if one “resents God’s law” (on ANY small level – usually by QUESTIONING GOD’S LAW), Satan & his demons usually have very little trouble getting that soul to eventually ABANDON GOD’S LAW and instead, EMBRACE FOREIGN “UNBIBLICAL/SATANIC” LAWS (i.e. The June 26, 2015 United State Supreme Court “gay marriage law”)

And bit by bit and little by little, the more Satan can get someone to QUESTION GOD’S LAW and to EMBRACE FOREIGN/UNBIBLICAL/SATANIC LAWS, the more CLOSER that person is to being OPENED TO THE IDEA of taking THE MARK OF THE BEAST/SATAN’S MARK! Many of us seem to be forgetting that THE MARK OF THE BEAST IS A *SECULAR MARK!* And by SECULAR, I mean POPULAR!

Matthew 7:13-14 declares: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY THERE BE WHICH GO IN THEREATBecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT

So in other words, the above passage in Matthew is telling us that MANY, MANY, MANY people will choose to DISREGARD JESUS AND HIS LAW and instead, decide to follow their “own law” (aka “Satan’s law!”) Yet, at the same time, the passage is ALSO telling us that VERY FEW PEOPLE will make it to “Eternal Paradise with Jesus”. VERY, VERY FEW!

This is also confirmed in Luke 12:32 by which Jesus says: “Fear not, LITTLE FLOCK; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”.

Jesus calls himself in the bible “the good shepherd”, while his people he calls “his sheep”. And the reason Jesus used those expressed terms is that back in ancient bible times, many people were shepherds, therefore, Jesus had to speak to them in terms they would easily understand. Nevertheless, given how much “knowledge” we have today in the modern world, it’s not hard for us to unpack Jesus’s “spiritual meaning” from those two terms – shepherd and sheep!

Because just like a good shepherd faithfully looks after his sheep, so does Jesus faithfully look after all those people who love/obey him! And just like a sheep will get “lost” if it strays from the shepherd, so also will WE get “eternally lost” (spiritually) if we permanently stray from Jesus! In fact, the bible describes Satan as the “wolf who scatters the flock!” Those “sheep”(i.e. God’s people) who “stray from the shepherd” (i.e. Jesus) WILL get “torn to pieces by the wolf” (i.e. Satan!)

But Satan is very, very “crafty!” He gots several devices up his sleeve by which to deceive the Lord’s people! One of the BIGGEST of these is “the love of MONEY!” Satan’s got SO many people ensnared by that that it’s not even funny! And in fact, it’s the “love of money” that will cause MANY to take “The MARK of the BEAST”. Because hey, those folks still want to be able to buy and sell, right? They still want to feed their children, family members, pets and get their 401K, etc. In other words, their love of money is more than their love of Jesus! HOW SAD! ;(

But basically, anyone who’s names are NOT written in the Lamb’s Book of Life WILL be deceived by the Antichrist (the one who INSTITUTES the “Mark of the Beast”). The Antichrist (talked about in SEVERAL posts on this site) is ofcourse, the “false Jesus” or “false Messiah” of the 21st century! The one world gov’t leader who will “appear to be the answer to all the world’s problems!” The one who “promotes peace” and performs FALSE MIRACLES such as “bring down fire from heaven” and that also “has a head wound and DIES from the head wound but then LIVES”, etc.!

Yet, Revelation 14:11 makes it VERY, VERY clear that ALL whom take “The Mark of the Beast” in their right hands or their foreheads WILL be tormented FOR ALL OF ETERNITY: “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”

The forehead represents THE MIND! Therefore, when one takes The Mark of the Beast in their forehead, they’re more or less agreeing to let Satan & the forces of darkness (The Antichrist, the False Prophet, etc.) have control of NOT ONLY their soul, but more importantly, THEIR MIND! That’s very, very creepy & sobering, folks! Because once a person takes The Mark of the Beast, their DNA (specifically, the DNA of THEIR BRAIN) will be PERMANENTLY ALTERED BEYOND RECOGNITION OR REPAIR!

What’s interesting to note however is that while the Seal of God can ONLY be placed on the Forehead of God’s loyal people by the angels, (which is ofcourse an “invisible seal”), The Mark of the Beast is a LITERAL, VISIBLE SEAL that can be placed on the right hand OR the forehead by the Antichrist authorities!

While the angels invisibly place God’s Seal on God’s loyal subjects, Satan forces his literal, visible mark upon all of mankind, if they want to be able to buy and sell! Notice the counterfeit, there? Satan loves to counterfeit the things of God! (On the other hand, Jesus and the angels are able to “see” the invisible seal of God on God’s loyal subjects, the seal just can’t be seen by non-saved subjects!)

However, God’s “seal” goes way, way deeper than the “seal” talked about in the book of Revelation! God’s “sign/seal” starts ALL THE WAY AT THE BEGINNING, IN GENESIS, THE VERY FIRST BOOK OF THE BIBLE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT!

In Genesis, we read about how God created the world in 6 days, then rested on and sanctified the 7th day (Saturday), which God called The Sabbath (which I’m sure is a Hebrew word for “Rest”, since God “rested” on that fateful day!) And later on in Exodus 31:13-17 in the Old Testament, we begin to see how the 7th-Day Sabbath (Saturday) is A SIGN of the covenant between God and his people!

In the bible, a “sign” is synonymous with the word “mark” or “seal”. I guess it could also be technically synonymous with the word “covenant” as well. Plus we also know that the God digs the number 7! Therefore, I surmise that The Seal of God will also likely have to do with the number 7 in some way, shape or form! (But again, that’s ONLY a spiritual theory on my part, don’t quote me on that, folks!) The Mark of the Beast, on the other hand, will have to do with the number 666 in some way, shape or form!

SEAL OF GOD VS. MARK OF THE BEAST PHOTO1

SEAL OF GOD VS. MARK OF BEAST

It is probably fair to say that The Mark of the Beast STARTS in the mind, but isn’t fully received UNTIL the LITERAL taking OF it in the right hand or in the forehead! Remember, it’s NOT JUST Sunday worship folks, it HAS TO DO WITH BUYING AND SELLING!!! And remember as well, it’s NOT JUST about buying and selling but ABOUT WORSHIP!

So therefore in conclusion: BOTH SEALS/MARKS HAVE TO DO WITH WORSHIP! Yet, ONE Mark/Seal UPHOLDS God and his authority while ANOTHER Mark (Mark of the Beast) DENIES God’s authority and gives it over to Satan/The Antichrist! So remember that, folks! And what “Mark” you receive depends on WHAT GOD YOU WORSHIP! Remember, to worship self IS to worship Satan (in essence!) For one of Satan’s very FIRST lie to Eve in the Garden of Eden was that she “could become like God/a god!”

And so essentially, that’s all The Mark of the Beast REALLY, TRULY IS! Satan’s LIE to mankind that they, IF they take The Mark of the Beast, can “become like God/a god!” Only, unlike Eve, those who take the Mark of the Beast will NOT be forgiven by God, not in this life NOR in the one to come! However, those who are “sealed in the name of God” and thus, REFUSE to take The Mark of the Beast? The bible says that those ones shall be KILLED! 

But folks, HAVE FAITH! For Jesus in Matthew 16:25 “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it

Translation? Those who try to do whatever in their power to prolong their Earthly life (while denying Jesus Christ) will lose their life ETERNALLY (i.e. in the lake of fire, the “2nd death”) while those who LOSE THEIR LIFE FOR CHRIST’S SAKE will GAIN ETERNAL LIFE (and thus, eternal rewards!) Make sense, people?

Matthew 6:19-21 says, Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also

Hopefully, you now have a more clearer picture about what the Seal (“Mark”) of God is and what The Mark of the Beast is and also what the similarities and differences are between the two! They’re BOTH about WORSHIP but only ONE of them leads to ETERNAL LIFE! Yet, BOTH of them PROMISE you “ETERNAL LIFE” but only ONE of them actually GIVES you ETERNAL LIFE, THE SEAL OF GOD, OFCOURSE! 

Don’t believe the Devil’s lies, folks! Don’t believe Satan’s lie or your friend’s lie that if you take The Mark of the Beast, you’ll receive “eternal life!” Because the ONLY type of Eternal Life that SATAN offers is ETERNAL SUFFERING IN THE LAKE OF FIRE! And trust me folks, that ain’t no LIFE AT ALL! On the other hand, JESUS CHRIST OFFERS LIFE ETERNAL! 

So you just got to ask yourself the following critical question: “Do I forgo money/temporal pleasure NOW, get myself eventually KILLED, then GAIN eternal life (and eternal rewards) LATER by REFUSING to take The Mark of the Beast when it soon comes upon the world or do I prematurely take The Mark of the Beast NOW in order to feed me, my children and family and SUFFER IN THE ETERNAL FLAMES OF THE LAKE OF FIRE, LATER?” 

I pray and hope that you will choose to DIE FOR CHRIST and GAIN eternal rewards {“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” – Matthew 24:13}, rather than to DENY CHRIST and ETERNALLY SUFFER IN THE FLAMES OF TORMENT!!!!!!!

ETERNITY HAS TWO BILLBOARD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE LAST (& FINAL) “TEMPTATION” OF MANKIND: (Mark of the Beast, Part ONE)

Mankind has been dealing with “temptation” since the fall of Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden!

In Genesis 2:16-17, right AFTER God had created the FIRST MAN (called Adam) and placed him in the Garden of Eden, he gave Adam “the rules”. And ONE of the rules that Adam was ordered to follow was the following:

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt NOT eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely DIE“.

Just a short time after in Genesis 2:21-22, the first WOMAN is created (to be Adam’s wife!)

“And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man

So now, at this point, the Lord God has not ONLY a HUMAN MAN living in the Garden of Eden, but a HUMAN WOMAN, as well! And the Lord God had just given Adam “the rules” a short time before. So now Adam at this time likely relegated the rules to his wife, as well! So Adam’s wife had a CLEAR understanding of the rules of God!

But yet, just a VERY short time later, we read in the beginning of Genesis, chapter 3:

“Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Now LOOK at those words, folks! They are more or less saying “Hath God said you shall NOT eat of ALL the trees in the Garden?” You can just SENSE the “teasing” and the “taunting” and the “bullying” that’s going on with that statement! That’s really not much different than many liberal arguments TODAY, concerning Jesus and the gospel. “Did God REALLY say…..?” and/or “Does the Bible REALLY say…..?” and/or “Does the Bible REALLY condemn _________ [x, y, z], etc.?”

But on with the story of Genesis, chapter 3. Verses 2-7 state: And the woman said unto the serpent, ‘We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die’. AND THE SERPENT SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, ‘YE SHALL SURELY NOT DIE: FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GODS, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL‘”. 

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eatAnd the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons”.

Now, what WAS it about this “forbidden tree” that was SO enticing to Eve, the first woman, that she decided to partake of it? Lets see. She, upon the serpent’s subtle suggestion, saw that it was “good for food”, that it was “pleasant to the eyes” and a “desired tree to make one wise”.

In other words, it fulfilled all the requirements for lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life! That’s EXACTLY what the New Testament is talking about when it says we should walk by FAITH and NOT by sight! Eve, the first woman, was walking by SIGHT!

So that was the VERY FIRST “temptation” of mankind! And in SO MANY WAYS, it’s a FORESHADOWING of what the VERY *LAST* “temptation” of mankind will be like! Cause the temptation (in and of itself) goes something like THIS: “IF you do THIS, THEN you will get/receive *THIS!*

And it’s honestly different than any OTHER temptation that’s out there. Because ONLY the VERY FIRST TEMPTATION of mankind and THE VERY LAST TEMPTATION of mankind promises ETERNAL REWARD(S) (by Satan) for giving IN to it! All OTHER temptations only promise TEMPORAL REWARDS! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

“Temptation” is ALL OVER THE PLACE in today’s world! Many people – specifically many “Christians” – believe that a person can ONLY be tempted when a person is “right with God” but that belief is THOROUGHLY FALSE and let me tell ya WHY:

1). When a non-believing alcoholic feels “tempted” to drink more alcohol, or when a person is tempted to “steal $5 off the ground” when nobody is looking, is THAT just mere “coincidence?” 

2). When a non-believing person feels the sudden urge to “physically fight with someone” that they’re arguing with, is THAT mere “coincidence?”

3). When a non-believing person feels this irresistible “urge” to go out and party all the time AND/OR to mock Christ, mock creationism, mock the bible, is THAT mere “coincidence?”

The answer to all of those questions is NO, NO and NO! And let me explain why! ALL of those 5 scenarios (which is just the tip of the iceberg) illustrate TEMPTATION! Yes! Temptation! And you people thought only CHRISTIAN PEOPLE ever felt “tempted?” HA!

[[[Oddly and ironically enough, there’s a popular song from the 90’s that MOCKS “temptation” ITSELF – AND JESUS….Just examine some of the hellish, Satanic lyrics to see what I mean. The Song is called “Temptation” by Corina and one of the lyric stanzas says the following: Temptation is a part of life. It doesn’t matter if its wrong or right. It makes you do what you love. But the fact that this song alone FULLY ACKNOWLEDGES that “temptation” is a PART of the human experience itself speaks to the FULL PROOF of its very existence, to begin with! So don’t be fooled! Don’t be fooled by thinking that ONLY Christians are “tempted!” That’s B.S.! Let me be frank, here! And listen to the song for any longer than 10 seconds, it becomes VERY spiritually apparent that she’s “breaking up with Jesus” and “falling in league with Satan”, a VERY SICK, TWISTED SONG, INDEED!]]] 

And while I honestly can’t say for 100% sure rather or not the born-again believer in Jesus gets more “tempted” than the average non-believer, what I DO KNOW is that the average, secular, non-believing person (and/or person from another world religion other than Christianity) STILL gets tempted in their life!

They’re not IMMUNE from temptation, folks! FAR from it, actually! Because REALLY: Whom or WHAT is behind the “driving force” that causes THEM to curse Jesus, curse the bible, disregard the NEED for Jesus/salvation, etc.? Answer: DEMONIC SPIRITS! Therefore, NEWSFLASH! ALL HUMANS GET TEMPTED (BY SATAN AND BY DEMONS!!!!!!!!)

And Mark of the Beast (talked about in Revelation 13) is THE MOST DAMNING TEMPTATION OF ALL! Why? Because it’s the LAST TEMPTATION that mankind will ever face! AND THE MOST TEMPTING TEMPTATION OF THEM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact, EVERY SINGLE temptation that mankind has EVER HAD within the whole ENTIRE HISTORY of mankind (from the beginning of man in Genesis, chapter 2, up until the modern time) has been leading up TO this one and FINAL temptation!

And unlike the VERY FIRST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND, where God STILL loved Adam & Eve and chose to forgive them and “move on” from their sin and STILL have them be “OK” with Him, THE VERY LAST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND will offer no such thing! For THE VERY LAST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND – if one gives IN to it – will offer NO forgiveness by God/Jesus! NONE!

Now, why is that, do you think? Why is it that THE VERY FIRST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND (that mankind gave into) WAS forgiven by God but the VERY LAST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND (IF and WHEN someone gives into it) WON’T be forgiven by God? 

Well, that’s simple. Unlike in the very beginning when mankind had JUST been done being created and were just “spiritual babies”, the mankind generation of 2018 has had over 2,000 years to learn about Jesus and “the laws of God” and to “get it right”. Therefore, the modern day generation of mankind HAS NO EXCUSE!

“If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin” – John 15:22

Jesus is making it pretty apparent here that if he had NOT come to Earth and spoken to mankind DIRECTLY about “Sin”, that mankind would technically have no responsibility for “sin”. However, since he DID come to the Earth to speak to mankind about their “sin”, mankind now has NO EXCUSE for their “sin”, as it pertains to the responsibility FOR their “sin!” (If that makes any sense?)

The first sin ever committed by mankind was ofcourse when Eve, the first woman, gave in to the serpent’s demands to eat the “forbidden fruit”. The 2nd temptation was when Eve, the first woman, gave some of the “forbidden fruit” to her husband, Adam (the first man) who ALSO ate of the fruit. And the 3rd temptation of mankind was when Cain, the first baby born into the world, grew up and killed his younger brother, Abel. And so, ever since Cain killed his younger brother, Abel, the world has never been the same!

Over the years, as more and more people populated the Earth, they became eviler and eviler and eviler the more in number they became. By the time that the fallen angels came to to have sex with human women and have children by them, mankind was already “ripe enough” for a full-scale rebellion against God. In MY spiritual opinion, the angels were just waiting for the RIGHT TIME to “infiltrate the human race”. And since women are the child-bearers, they knew they had to get into the women!

Now I’m just picturing your young, average Jewish woman around that time, standing around, talking with her female friends. “Oh my gosh, this totally hot guy from like, not around here noticed me, today!” Her friend goes: “Same here!” Another 3rd friend of hers goes: “Oh my GOSH, same here as well, ladies!” And I can picture these young women PRIDING THEMSELVES on the fact that these so-called “hot guys from not around there” noticed THEM! Oh, aren’t they just the “lucky ones?” Or so they THOUGHT at the time, anyways!

Just like Eve, they weren’t living by FAITH but by SIGHT! And either these young Jewish woman KNEW these “men” “weren’t from around town” and didn’t care……..OR they had NO IDEA that they “weren’t human men!” (There’s extra-biblical Jewish writings out there that suggest that demonic spirits can “shape-shift” into “human forms!”) This is what what was known as “The Days of Noah”.

And these “fallen angels” had children with these (unsuspecting?) human women and their children were GIANTS! (There’s certain passages in the bible which suggest that angels – in general – are of much taller size, compared to humans – more about that later). And these “fallen angels” wanted to PERVERT THE DNA OF THE HUMAN RACE! Why? Because naturally-born men and women are made in the image of God, that’s why! SATAN HATES THE IMAGE OF GOD! DEMONS HATE THE IMAGE OF GOD! Therefore, they wanted to DESTROY the image of God!

The Book of Enoch (which has only most recently in the 1800’s or so been removed from “the bible”), suggests that the fallen angels attempted to PERVERT the natural, human DNA by means of ALTERING THE DNA and doing all sorts of “genetic experiments” (not only on humans but on ANIMALS and all living things as well!) Many people wonder why God wanted or had to destroy EVERYTHING during the global flood of Noah’s times and THAT’S WHY……..to get rid of *ALL* the PERVERTED DNA/PERVERTED THINGS OF LIFE (humans, animals, plants, etc.)

And oddly enough, Jesus tells us in Matthew 24 about “the days of Noah”. Many things of which we’ve ALREADY seen come to pass – please read my post entitled “We ARE The Last Generation – Biblical Proof” for information on the subject at: yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/11/we-are-the-last-generation-biblical-proof/

Matthew 24: verses 37-39 state: But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man beFor as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be”

Now ok, what does that MEAN in plain English, some might ask? It means that in Noah’s day, people were EVIL, people’s HEARTS were selfish, people were NOT thinking about “the things of God”…..In fact, in Noah’s Day, they likely didn’t even BELIEVE in the importance of “obeying God!” They wanted to BE God, to become LIKE “gods”; they wanted to follow their “own way”, make “their own rules”, produce their OWN “morality” (or lack, thereof!)

Isaiah 5:20-24 puts it THIS WAY: Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sightWoe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 

Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from himTherefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel”

In other words, mankind (as a whole) became SO EVIL around the times of Noah, that following the “laws of God” was considered “EVIL” and thus, DEFYING the “laws of God” was then considered “good” by most people. However, God’s WRATH was upon all those people of unrighteousness!

However, even still, God still wanted those people to repent and be saved. So he (through his prophet Noah and his family) warned them of their “sin” and their NEED for “repentance”. In fact, God gave them 120 YEARS to do so! But yet, they didn’t do so! So, in the end, God had NO CHOICE but to wipe them from the face of the Earth!

Plus, they didn’t even FULLY REALIZE – while they were still living on the Earth – that God’s patience with them was WEARING THIN! They were SO spiritually blind, SO arrogant! They didn’t KNOW that they only had a certain amount of time to “get right” with Him before it was too late! And by the time most of them realized it, it was already too late!

Today’s society (in 2018 and on) is no different! The “society” during the “Days of Noah” is the SAME EXACT SOCIETY in which we’re living in, TODAY! Are they doing “DNA-editing” with humans and animals, just like they did back in Noah’s time? YES! Are people calling the “laws of God” evil, “outdated” and “archaic”? YES! Are people calling “good” that which is SINFUL/EVIL (i.e. homosexuality, trans/cross-dressing, abortion, etc.)? YES!

Are people of today “wise in their own eyes and prudent in their own sight?” YES! Are people REWARDING the wicked and PUNISHING the righteous (the people of God) in today’s society? YES! Are people marrying and being “given” in marriage (i.e. “gay marriage”)? YES! Therefore folks, we’ve got nearly ALL the hallmarks of Matthew 24 in the making! If that doesn’t concern you or make you see your NEED for Jesus/Salvation, then I don’t know what does!

But going back to the DNA-editing thing. I just saw this documentary a night or two ago in which this guy said that nearly ALL technology we have today (in 2018), ESPECIALLY at it pertains to DNA-editing, CAME from fallen angels! But again, that didn’t really surprise me. They were doing “DNA-editing” back in Noah’s time just like they’re also doing it in today’s time as well!

In fact, let me take this a step further: “scientists” are now coming up with ANY number of ways to “alter human DNA”. This could be through medicine, vaccines, organ transplants, “gene-therapy”, chimeras, etc. However, receiving the Mark of the Beast will be THE ULTIMATE DNA SWAP!

In other words, NOT ONLY is The Mark of The Beast THE VERY LAST TEMPTATION mankind will ever face but IF a person gives in to that final last temptation of mankind, THEIR DNA WILL BE PERMANENTLY ALTERED FOREVER! That’s part of the reason WHY Jesus will NOT be able to forgive a person once they take The Mark of the Beast – because that person won’t even be “human” anymore but A DEFECTIVE/MONSTROUS/POST-HUMAN/TRANS-HUMANISTIC CREATURE!

Some of the “temptations” that mankind faces NOW – in the month of September 2018 – are pretty bad. Many people across the globe (rather “saved” or “unsaved”) are “tempted” to do the following things:

  • Buy the new Iphone to “be the envy of others”
  • Sell their souls for money, fortune, fame
  • Drink excessive alcohol
  • Get an abortion
  • Watch ungodly TV shows/movies
  • Go to wild parties “in order to be accepted by others”
  • Try mind-altering drugs
  • Get tattoos, piercings
  • Cheat on their spouse/significant other
  • Watch “occultic movies”
  • Play “occultic videogames”
  • Engage in LUST outside of marriage
  • Engage in sodomy/homosexual behavior
  • Fight for “gay/trans rights”
  • Learn/practice Witchcraft/Wicca/Satanism
  • Listen to “occultic music”
  • Watch porn and/or masturbate
  • Engage in witchcraft/Wicca/Satanism
  • Put Jesus Christ on the back burner in order to be “liked by others”
  • ETC.

However, compared to THE ULTIMATE TEMPTATION that’ll happen with The Mark of the Beast, all of THOSE above temptations are considered a “cake walk”. However, THE REASON the Mark of the Beast will NOT ONLY by the LAST TEMPTATION OF MANKIND but also THE MOST TEMPTING TEMPTATION OF MANKIND is that people won’t be able to buy or sell WITHOUT it!!!!!!! And those whom REFUSE to take the Mark of the Beast will NOT ONLY be PROHIBITED from buying and selling but will ALSO be forced to endure SEVERE PERSECUTION, TORCHURE and/or DEATH!

So Christians, if you think you can’t handle a little persecution NOW in your lives, you are NOT gonna be able to handle THE ULTIMATE TEMPTATION of Mark of the Beast!!!!!! See folks, that’s the problem, TOO MANY CHRISTIANS WILL GIVE IN and FALSELY THINK THAT JESUS WILL FORGIVE THEM! However, they’re SADLY MISTAKEN! Because like I said, ONCE they take the Mark of the Beast, they’ll go from THIS:

PEOPLE BEFORE MARK OF THE BEAST

Normal, everyday humans BEFORE taking The Mark of the Beast

to THIS: (humans who HAVE taken The Mark of The Beast, thus, becoming a “puppet” to Satan, the world, demons and the Antichrist and thus, in doing so, becoming a “biometric/permanently altered demonically-possessed “synthetic-DNA of a being”):

 

And please note: The picture at the lower right-hand corner illustrates how ALL non-saved people of the Earth (as well as “Christians” who caved in to pressure to TAKE The Mark of the Beast) WILL be spiritually blinded by the The Antichrist, and “amazingly look up to Him AS IF he’s Almighty God!”)

And Note: maybe the guy in the middle of the lower right-hand photo who “doesn’t seem to be going with the program” is one of those Jews or Christians who KNOWS he was wrong in taking The Mark and is HIGHLY DEPRESSED & DISTRAUGHT about it since HE KNOWS NOW THAT THERE’S NO ETERNAL HOPE FOR HIM, AT THIS THEORETICAL POINT IN TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (HOW TRAGIC! The MOST painful realization for him at this point is that HE COULD’VE PREVENTED IT, IF HE HAD JUST HELD OUT AND TRUSTED JESUS AND ***NOT*** TAKEN THE MARK, THE WAY HE DID!!!!!!!!) 

Therefore, the “photo collage” up above is supposed to VISUALLY REPRESENT how a person who takes the Mark of the Beast will:

  1. Be “demonically possessed/PERMANENTLY taken over”
  2. Become a “cyborg/bionic being” with FAKE, SYNTHETIC DNA (In other words, their DNA will be PERMANENTLY altered and they will NO LONGER BE FULLY HUMAN!)
  3. Become a “puppet” of Satan, Antichrist and the “New World Beast Society”
  4. Look to the Antichrist (the “false Christ”) AS IF he is “God!”

It is a “sin” and “temptation”, that, if given into, THERE’S NO COMING BACK FROM! Once you take the Mark, THAT’S IT, YOU’RE DONE, GAME OVER! It will be THE LAST FREE CHOICE you’ll ever make as a human being! And whatever choice you make concerning The Mark of the Beast will affect you FOR ALL OF ETERNITY!

So folks, you’ve REALLY got to ask yourselves: Is 5 minutes of “temporal pleasure” worth an eternity in hell/the lake of fire? And just because someone walks like a lamb, talks like a lamb, says He is a lamb, and acts like a lamb, does that necessarily make him a lamb? In other words, just because someone on the Earth SAYS they’re Jesus, does that automatically make them Jesus?

What does THE BIBLE have to say about Jesus’s 2nd return to the Earth? The bible says that Jesus will return IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN! Therefore, any OTHER “Jesus” that comes to the Earth in ANY other type of way is NOT the Jesus of the bible, PURE AND SIMPLE! Now……could the elite somehow perform a “fake rapture” or “fake false return of Jesus” using Project Bluebeam in the sky? Possibly.

Therefore, the ONLY surefire know that it’s the BIBLICAL Jesus in the clouds of heaven (during the Rapture) is if Jesus HIMSELF catches you up in the air to be with Him! Just like the ONLY surefire way to know it’s the BIBLICAL Jesus at his 2nd Return TO the Earth will be if he sets his feet upon the Mount of Olives AND the Mount of Olives IMMEDIATELY SPLITS IN TWO!

Zechariah 14:4 declares: “And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south” .

The Mount of Olives is just east of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. On the southeast slope is an old road that leads to the village of Bethany. Therefore, when Jesus returns to the Mount of Olives, there will be a massive earthquake, and, as Zechariah said, THE MOUNTAIN WILL SPLIT IN *TWO!*

Therefore, if you see what appears to be a “Jesus”, someone says to you: Look! There’s Jesus on the Mount of Olives!” or someone that SAYS they’re “Jesus” is standing on the Mount of Olives and there’s NOT an immediate MASSIVE Earthquake that splits the Mount of Olives in TWO, then you just KNOW that you’re dealing with a “False Jesus”, there!

But yet, the bible says that UNLESS our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, WE WILL be deceived by The Antichrist/The “False Christ”/False “god!” Because his lies will be SO powerful, SO CUNNING, that most people will be none the wiser! The bible says he (The Antichrist/The False “god”) will perform “miracles” such as BRING DOWN FIRE FROM HEAVEN!

So automatically right there, that tells me that the Jews will believe he (the Antichrist) is the returned “Elijah”, and their so-called “Messiah”. That’s both sad & frightening, in full biblical scale! Therefore, in conclusion:

  • The Jews will think the Antichrist is “the returned Elijah”, their “Messiah”.
  • The Christians (the lukewarm ones, anyways) will think he’s “Jesus”.
  • The Muslims will think he’s the 12th Iman or the Madhi (their version of a 21st century “Messiah”).
  • Buddhists will think he’s the 5th Buddha or Maitreya.
  • Hindus will think he’s the reincarnation of Shiva/Kali.
  • Mormons will think he’s some sort of version of a “returned Joseph Smith” (from my understanding).
  • Atheists will believe he’s “God”.
  • Satanists will worship him as “Satan”.
  • Wiccans/Shintoists/Native Americans will worship him as “Cernunnos/Kami/The Grandfather Spirit”.
  • Any other group that I missed will think he’s “God” or A “god”.

But the point I’m trying to make is that MANY PEOPLE will be deceived by this “man”, this one world gov’t leader (The Antichrist) who appears to be “the answer to all of the world’s problems”. And just HOW and WHY will the Antichrist be so compelling to people? Let us review:

  • He will “appear to be a peace-maker”
  • He will do things that no other human man has ever done before (especially in politics – as it pertains to so-called “peace in the Middle East”)
  • He will have the power of persuasion and suggestion
  • He will KNOW how to manipulate people’s emotions & psychology to get what he wants
  • He will be indwelt with the power of Satan (and demons)
  • He will change times and laws
  • He will make fire come down from heaven & other “miracles”
  • He will appear to have the solution for everything, for everyone
  • He will SEVERELY punish all those who oppose him, including torchuring and/or kill them
  • He will make people FEAR HIM
  • He will make people LOVE/ADMIRE HIM
  • He will have a deadly mortal wound – but then be HEALED of that wound (leading many to believe that he’s “Almighty God”).
  • He will SAY he’s God
  • He will SAY he’s Jesus/Allah/Buddha/Maitreya/Satan/Kali/Cernunnos/Kami/The Grandfather Spirit
  • He will set himself up in the Temple of God (many believe this to be the 3rd Jewish Temple)
  • To the “Christians”, he will LOOK like Jesus, TALK like Jesus, ACT like Jesus, DRESS like Jesus and appear to BE Jesus (but he won’t be the Jesus of the bible, folks! Not by a LONG shot!)
  • ETC.

So, if any of that puts some fear into your heart, that’s a GOOD thing, for it means that the Holy Spirit is now vastly “at work” in you!!! “So how can I be sure to NOT be deceived by this man/The Antichrist/The “False Christ”/”False God?” many may ask. And the answer is simple: BECOME SPIRITUALLY BORN-AGAIN IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST SO THAT **YOUR NAME** WILL BE WRITTEN IN JESUS’S HEAVENLY RECORD BOOK CALLED THE “BOOK OF LIFE!” ONLY Jesus Himself FROM HEAVEN can record your name in The Book of Life, **NOBODY ELSE CAN**!

So note: IF you are a Christian or soon to become Christian and you see a “Book of Life” floating around in person or on the internet, and somebody tries to come and tell you that all you have to do is write your name and/or signature in the book, DON’T LISTEN! For that is a FALSE BOOK OF LIFE! A COUNTERFEIT! For ONLY THE HAND OF GOD/JESUS HIMSELF CAN RECORD *YOUR NAME* IN THE BOOK OF LIFE! Got it, folks?

In conclusion, the last and final thing I want to say is that The Mark of the Beast will be THE MOST POWERFUL, MOST TEMPTING temptation that mankind has ever faced! Faced with other, smaller temporal temptations throughout the years, most of us were able to eventually overcome them, somehow. But yet, the “temptation” to take the Mark of the Beast will be THE MOST *POWERFUL* & “DAMNING” TEMPTATION THAT MANKIND HAS EVER FACED! And most people aren’t prepared for it!

{{Note: Here’s a PREVIEW of what “Mark of the Beast” will be like – what’s now happening in China in September of 2018: a “SOCIAL CREDIT SCORE” (which means a “score” based on just how “loyal” to the gov’t/dominant political party line that you’re likely to BE! Scary, folks!}}

Most Christians, quite honestly, can’t even fast (that means, go without food) for a full 24 hours! Therefore, what makes most Christians today think they’re going to be able to withstand the Mark of the Beast if and when they run out of their “food preserves” and are then possibly forced to go without food for DAYS? WEEKS? MONTHS at a time? Many of those “starving Christians” will cave and take the Mark, in order to feed themselves, their pets, their children and their families! And WHEN and IF they do, JESUS WILL DAMN THEM TO HELL/THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR **ALL OF ETERNITY!**

So DO NOT take the Mark, folks, NO MATTER WHAT, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, NO MATTER WHO OR WHAT THEY THREATEN YOU WITH! It’s NOT worth it! It’s NOT worth an ETERNITY in hell/the lake of fire OUTSIDE OF THE LOVING PRESENCE OF JESUS, ANGELS, SAINTS AND THE PROPHETS! It is SO not worth it! And not only that but why let Satan win? Why let demons win? Why let Satan and his demons (who NEVER, EVER loved you or respected you, by the way) get all the VICTORY? Afterall, it IS Satan and his demons who are the ones who are “tormenting you” while you’re still living on the Earth! Satan and his demons are to blame for all the “bad things” that happened to you in your life! So why let HIM win? Why, INDEED?

In a weird twist of irony, Satan wants YOU to believe that Jesus doesn’t love you, that YOU are too desperately wicked to be saved and that HE (Satan) loves you! But ya know what, folks? It’s the OPPOSITE WAY AROUND! Satan HATES YOU! Demons HATE YOU! That’s WHY they torment you and tempt you and plague you with anxiety, restlessness, and depression morning, noon and night! On the other hand, JESUS LOVES YOU! The righteous angels of God LOVE YOU! And the “true” agents of heaven (Jesus and his righteous angels) want what’s BEST for you! 

There ARE things that YOU and your family can do, in order to “prepare” for the Mark of the Beast/Mark of the Beast SYSTEM. First of all, start reading your bibles! Not only READ the scriptures but BELIEVE THEM! And once you start truly BELIEVING THEM, you then need to OBEY THEM and START ACTIVELY APPLYING THEM IN YOUR LIFE! Worship on the 7th Day Sabbath (Saturday), start celebrating in the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) Start forgiving those who have hurt you, etc. And furthermore, start “teaching” your body how to FAST (that means, to go for a short period of time – 12 to 24 hours – WITHOUT EATING!) 

Also remember the time of the Israelites out in the desert. Once their “food” from the unleavened bread ran out, guess what? GOD PROVIDED THEM HEAVENLY FOOD CALLED MANNA, FROM HEAVEN! Therefore, what makes you think that God won’t ALSO do something similar for his people during the End Times? THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS! Do you REALLY think that Jesus is a type of God that will feed the ANCIENT ISRAELITE’S from heaven during THEIR critical time of need but yet, somehow manage to let his people of the modern-day STARVE in THEIR critical time of need? ME THINKS NOT! 

And when it comes to “teaching” yourself to defy THE ULTIMATE TEMPTATION OF MANKIND (The Mark of the Beast), start “teaching” yourself NOW to “say no” to things that you really want. Example: You got an extra $5 at the grocery store and you really, really, REALLY want that small slice of pizza or small piece of chocolate cake that only costs $4.10 + tax. FORCE YOURSELF TO *NOT* BUY IT, NO MATTER WHAT and no matter HOW tempted you may feel to buy it. And over time, you will find that the more and more you do that (with various temptations in your life) the easier and easier it becomes to “say no” to things. 

Ofcourse, that (and fasting) are just two very small “baby steps” when it comes to teaching yourself to defy temptation in Jesus’s name. Let us not also forget PRAYER! Pray is a VERY EFFECTIVE thing when it comes to defying temptation! When you’re feeling weak, just cry out to Jesus for SPIRITUAL DELIVERANCE and TRUST IN HIM 100%, NO HOLDING BACK and he WILL deliver you from whatever temptation or situation you’re facing, MARK MY WORDS! 

Ofcourse, you can always get a head start on the whole defying Antichrist thing if you just pray the following prayer and mean it with all your soul, heart, mind, body, spirit and strength…….with everything that is within the “fiber” of your BEING………

“Jesus, I don’t want to be deceived by the Antichrist. I don’t want to be deceived by Satan and his demons and all their false LIES! Please help me to NOT be deceived by the Antichrist in any way, shape or form! Please show me what is truth and what are lies, in today’s world. Please reveal yourself unto me and reveal the truth of your gospel unto me. Please give me eyes to see and ears to hear what YOU have to say to “the church” in these last days. Please give me a new mind, heart, body, spirit and soul. Please renew my mind in YOU, O Lord! Please give me STRENGTH in you, O Lord! Please give me the power to withstand any temptations the Devil throws my way in these Last Days! And Jesus, when the time comes, please give me the knowledge, the endurance, the fortitude and the emotional/physical/spiritual strength to WITHSTAND the Mark of the Beast, even if it means I must be tortured, imprisoned and/or if it will cost me MY LIFE! I say all this in your great, heavenly name! Amen”. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We ARE The Last Generation: Biblical Proof

The End Times have fascinated many a soul since the time of Daniel. When Daniel was shown “visions of the End” (in the Old Testament), he initially had NO IDEA about the meaning of what he was seeing or WHY! In fact, the archangel Gabriel had to come down and explain the meaning of the vision to him.

And just imagine this for a moment, folks. Imagine if you had lived back during the times of Daniel….Imagine you saw this awesome, dreadful vision but you had NO IDEA what that vision MEANT! But yet, you KNEW, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that bad things were about to happen, as it pertained to God’s Wrath! Imagine how HEAVY that would weigh upon your HEART and SOUL!

Okay, now fast forward to the times of Jesus & his disciples upon the Earth. Jesus’s disciples, like Daniel, were ALSO highly concerned about the End Times and thought often ABOUT them, apparently. And one day, they came to Jesus privately and asked him what the signs of the “end of the age” would be. And Jesus answered them. This is all recorded in the Book of Matthew 24 [New Testament, Book of Matthew, Chapter 24].

======================================================================

It reads as follows:

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand): Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth”.

=========================================================================

Okay, so right off the bat, Jesus told us SEVERAL signs of the End Times in Matthew 24:

THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS:

  • There shall be many “false Christs” (i.e. people falsely claiming to be Jesus/the 2nd coming of Jesus)
  • There shall be wars and RUMORS of wars
  • Nation shall rise against nation; kingdom against kingdom
  • Famines, Pestilences, and Earthquakes, in diverse places

These 4 above signs (all well under way already, in today’s world) are what Jesus calls “The Beginning of Sorrows”. But folks, it doesn’t stop THERE……..there’s more:

  • Christians shall be delivered up to be afflicted, and killed
  • Christians shall be hated of all nations for Christ’s name sake
  • Many will be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another
  • Many false prophets will arise & deceive MANY
  • Because iniquity [sin] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold
  • And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come

Okay, so interestingly enough in Matthew 24, we’ve got 10 signs total that Jesus has given us there in that passage of Matthew 24: 1-14! (Remember the 10 Plagues of Egypt?) Now…..has there been any actual evidence OF those 10 signs coming to pass already, in today’s world? The resounding answer is ofcourse, YES! Let us examine:

Here are all the signs that we’re living in the Last Days (talked about in more detail), while down below the url, I’ll give summaries of the “proof” of the 10 signs mentioned in Matthew 24:

8.) Many false prophets will arise and deceive MANY. CHECK!

But by “false prophets”, the bible’s not JUST talking about those falsely claiming to be Christ! It’s talking about other people, too……The Pope, Catholic clergy, wayward Christian pastors, liberal college professors, secular scientists, entertainers, authors, wayward Christians, atheists and/or people living in sin (as in, PERPETUAL SIN), etc.

9.) Because iniquity [sin] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. CHECK!

10). And this gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world unto a witness to all nations; and then the End shall come. [CURRENTLY IN PROCESS!]

I’ve met more than a few foreigners living here in the United States who are of other religions who’ve NEVER heard of Jesus before! (SERIOUSLY!) So apparently, not ALL souls of the world have had a chance to hear about Jesus, yet. But ONCE they do…….THE END WILL COME!!!

=========================

So there’s much debate on just WHAT generation Jesus was talking about in Matthew 24. From original glance at the biblical text, it would appear that Jesus is talking to his 12 DISCIPLES’ generation! SO the average person would think, “Well, the Earth is still here some 1,985 years later, so I guess Jesus’s word didn’t come true, then!” But to THOSE skeptics that say as such, I say to them all in response “NOT SO FAST!”

Jesus had given his disciples a good 10 SIGNS! (And think about it, that’s ALOT of signs, folks! Alot!) So now lets look at the exact wording that Jesus used in Matthew 24: 34: “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till ALL these things be fulfilled“. 

Okay, now exactly WHAT generation is Jesus talking about, there? Does he mean the generation of his own time, his disciples’ time? Or does he mean THE MODERN GENERATION? Lets take a closer look at the very LAST part of Jesus’s statement: “till ALL these things be fulfilled”. What things? The 10 signs!!!!!!! 

Therefore, let me put this differently. THE generation that Jesus is talking about is THE End Times Generation that would see ALL “10 Signs” come to pass……SIMULTANEOUSLY! Or in other words, WE are that LAST generation, folks! WE (humankind) on this Earth have ALREADY lived through the first 9 SIGNS, with the 10th one now BEING IN PROCESS!!!!!!! That’s how WE can know that WE are “The Last Generation” of HUMANKIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which means Jesus’s 2nd return to the Earth is EVER. MORE. CLOSER. More closer than what we had EVER initially imagined! Therefore, we must REPENT of our sins! That means to give them up and STOP doing them! STOP doing the things that YOU know in YOUR heart and soul is displeasing to God/Jesus! Time is of the essence, folks! We NEVER know when we’re going to DIE! Time to GET RIGHT with Christ! Time to GET OUR HOUSES IN ORDER! 

Jesus had THIS to ask of the Christians that he KNEW would be living on the Earth around the time of his 2nd Return to Earth: “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

I’m gonna repeat that once more so you, dear reader, can MEDITATE on Jesus’s question to “the church”: “……NEVERTHELESS, WHEN THE SON OF MAN COMETH, SHALL HE FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH?” 

Folks, that’s a question that cuts at the VERY heart & soul!!!! Trust me folks, the bible doesn’t call the Lord’s truth a 2-EDGED SWORD for NOTHING! In fact, Hebrews 4:12 states: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”

And folks, that does NOT even included all of the OTHER End Times signs that we’re seeing as well: 

Daniel 12:4 “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased

“Many shall run to and fro” is simply talking about TRAVEL/TRAVELING/TRANSPORT! We have transport ALL OVER THE WORLD right now! And “knowledge shall be increased”. This one’s not hard to figure out, folks! Look at just HOW ADVANCED technology has become, just in the last 5-10 years, ALONE! It is just MIND-BOGGLING! 

Daniel 7:25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, AND THINK TO CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time”

For those in the “biblical know”, think back to the time when Obama “mocked” Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount in Matthew, chapters 5-7! THIS is what the bible is referring to as it pertains to “mocking the Most High” [God/Jesus].

Also: Think about the June 26, 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision that “legalized” the concept of “gay marriage” all across the 50 states of the U.S.! This what the bible means when it’s talking about “changing TIMES and LAWS”. And in this context, I believe the word “times” COULD possibly mean “culture”, as in “the culture of our time(s)”. Ofcourse, we could also take that literally, as in, the biblical sabbath “law” was CHANGED from Saturday, the 7th day of the week, to Sunday, the FIRST day of the week by Constantine and the Catholic Church during the Council of Nicea! 

2 Timothy 3: 1-5 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away”

One does NOT have to look far to see how we, as a society, and as a global world, have become today, character-wise (as a collective whole). Just hop on Youtube, for example. And think. THINK. Where did the concept of “the selfie” come from? Hint: SELF! Worship of SELF! Me, me, me. me, ME! We’re a self-indulged society.

In fact, just do a minor “trolling” of a random person’s Facebook, Youtube or Instragram page, and you’ll see what I mean. The “average person” is all about likes, subscribers, ratings and so on. Plus the TOTAL ARROGANCE that some of the “most famous Youtubers” have is just MIND-BOGGLING, to say the least!

But then I have to ask myself this question: How did WE, as a society, get here? How did we, humanity, get here to this place where now our self-worth (as a whole) seems to be determined by our looks or how many likes/subscribers we have and so on and so forth? But then the answer hits me, as clear as day: These times were “prophesied” long, long ago, before any of us were EVEN BORN! And what Jesus says will come to pass WILL come to pass! MARK MY WORDS!

But again, all one has to do is examine the evidence! Examine the biblical evidence that we’re living in THE LAST DAYS! The evidence of THE LAST DAYS is ALL AROUND US! Yet, many have their heads in the sand! Yes, there’s been earthquakes and natural disasters before. BUT NEVER TO THIS DEGREE (that we’ve now been seeing in the last 5 years or so) AND ***NEVER SIMULTANEOUSLY!***

Also: Lets us ALSO not forget Revelation, chapter 13! [New Testament, book of Revelation, Chapter 13]. This chapter talks about a VERY SOON coming one world gov’t comprised of a one world economy, one world religion and one world political system! The head of the one world gov’t will be none other than THE ANTICHRIST!

And the Antichrist WILL PERFORM **FALSE MIRACLES** IN ORDER TO **DECEIVE** THE MASSES! He will make fire come down from heaven in the site of men, etc.! He will require ALL of the Earth’s inhabitants to TAKE A MARK on their right hand or in their foreheads in order to be able to buy and sell! (JESUS SAID WHOMEVER TAKES THE ANTICHRIST’S/”FALSE WORLD MESSIAH”/ONE WORLD GOV’T LEADER’S MARK WILL BE *DAMNED* FOR *ALL* OF ETERNITY! OUCH!) 

And those signs, compared with the Matthew 24 signs, compared with all of the OTHER end times bible signs? Folks, it’s a no brainer! We ARE the Last Generation of the world, Jesus’s 2nd Coming is NEAR and we DO need to repent of all our sins and get saved in the name of Jesus before it’s too late!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love you all with ALL my heart! Please don’t say I didn’t warn you! Amen. 

 
 

The 7th-Day Sabbath (Saturday): A SIGN of God’s Covenant!

Many “Christian” churches today worship on Sunday, the FIRST day of the week! To many Christians, that is their “Sabbath!” But is that the CORRECT biblical Sabbath? Let us examine:

And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them. Moreover also I gave them MY sabbaths, TO BE A SIGN between me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them” – [Ezekiel 20: 11-12]

I am the Lord your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; And hallow MY sabbaths; and THEY SHALL BE A SIGN between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God – [Ezekiel 20:1 9-20]

“For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it

– [Exodus 20:11]

“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you” – [Exodus 31:13]

“Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generationsfor a PERPETUAL COVENANT” – [Exodus 31:16]

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made” – [Genesis 2: 2-3]

Hhhmm……There seems to be a SEVERE inconsistency between what the BIBLE says and what “the church” says, regarding the “Biblical Sabbath”, so who’s right? To get a more clearer picture, lets examine some quotes about WHY “the church” worships on Sunday, the FIRST day of the week, instead of Saturday, the 7th day of the week, for some more clues:

===================================================

[Source: http://amazingdiscoveries.org/S-deception-Sabbath_Sunday_Catholic_Church]

Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108:

“But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify”.

The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1957): 50:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why Do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920:

“If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day created by God, which is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church”.

Stephen Keenan, Catholic—Doctrinal Catechism 3rd Edition: 174:

Question: Have you any other way of proving the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?

Answer: Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the 1st day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the 7th day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.

Our Sunday Visitor (February 5, 1950):

“Practically everything Protestants regard as essential or important they have received from the Catholic Church… The Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in accepting the Bible and observing the Sunday, in keeping Christmas and Easter, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope“.

Catholic Priest T. Enright, CSSR, Kansas City, MO:

It was the holy Catholic Church that changed the day of rest from Saturday to Sunday, the 1st day of the week. And it not only compelled all to keep Sunday, but at the Council of Laodicea, AD 364, anathematized those who kept the Sabbath and urged all persons to labor on the 7th day under penalty of anathema.

Catholic Priest T. Enright, CSSR, lecture at Hartford, KS, Feb 18, 1884::

“I have repeatedly offered $1000 to any one who can furnish any proof from the Bible that Sunday is the day we are bound to keep…The Bible says, “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy,” but the Catholic Church says, “No, keep the first day of the week,” and the whole world bows in obedience”.

Cardinal John Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine (London: Basil Montague Pickering, 1878): 373::

The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; votive offerings on recovery from illness; holy water; asylums; holydays and seasons…are ALL of pagan origin and sanctified by their adoption into the Church.:

Catholic Record (September 1, 1923):

“The [catholic] Church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact”.

Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae (The Reunion of Christendom), June 20, 1894:

“We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty”.

“Pope,” Ferraris’ Ecclesiastic Dictionary:

“The Pope is of so great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God, and the vicar of God”. [Note: Vicar of God means “Son of God”, the same title that JESUS has!]

American Catholic Quarterly Review (January 1883):

“Sunday…is purely a creation of the Catholic Church”.

Catholic American Sentinel (June 1893):

“Sunday…It is a law of the Catholic Church alone…”

“The Question Box,” The Catholic Universe Bulletin (August 14, 1942): 4:

“The (Catholic) Church changed the observance of the Sabbath to Sunday by right of the divine, infallible authority given to her by her Founder, Jesus Christ. The Protestant claiming the Bible to be the only guide of faith, has no warrant for observing Sunday. In this matter, the Seventh-day Adventist is the only consistent Protestant.”

NOTE: This change from Saturday to Sunday Sabbath was prophesied about in Daniel 7. The great reformer Philipp Melanchton knew this truth five centuries ago. He wrote this:

“…….They have changed God’s laws and turned them into their own traditions to be kept above God’s precepts”.

========================================================

Alright here folks, so what can we conclude from all this? Simple. 5 things:

1). The Roman Catholic Church CHANGED the biblical Sabbath from the 7th day of the week (Saturday) to Sunday (the 1st day of the week).

2). The Roman Catholic Church HAD NO BIBLICAL AUTHORITY TO DO SO!

3). Nearly ALL Protestant churches (except the 7th-day Adventists) have followed suit!

4). The 7th-Day Biblical Sabbath is on SATURDAY, not Sunday!

5). The 7th-Day Biblical Sabbath (Saturday) is A SIGN of God’s Covenant between God/Jesus and his people!

Reading through the bible (from Old to New Testaments), God/Jesus had many “signs” of his covenant between he and his people! One of the signs of his covenant was circumcision! Another sign was his biblical feasts and biblical precepts! But THE MOST important sign of the covenant between he and his people was KEEPING THE 7TH-DAY SABBATH (SATURDAY) HOLY!

So…..are all the Christians out there who are keeping the Sunday Sabbath BREAKING God’s Covenant? The simple answer is YES! (However, most of them are probably unaware of this fact and I pray that Jesus has mercy upon their souls! Afterall, I myself followed the 1st day Sabbath – Sunday – until I became “born again” and came to know better!)

But of all the Christians in the world, just THINK how many are “guilty” (rather they realize it or not) of BREAKING THE BIBLICAL SABBATH (which is Saturday!) That number would have to be in the MILLIONS, possibly BILLIONS! This is SCARY, folks! This is quite sobering!

Jesus says in Hosea 4: 6-7 [Old Testament, Book of Hosea, Chapter 4, Verses 6-7] “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame”. OUCH!

Therefore, Jesus is saying here that BECAUSE Christians (as a whole) have REJECTED his true Jewish gospel and forgotten the “Jewish laws” of God, that he will reject them AND their children and allow them to “spiritually perish”, ALL those who REJECT his biblical laws, his biblical Sabbath AND his biblical holidays and HAVE NO DESIRE to *learn them!* DOUBLE OUCH!

In other words, many people in today’s world claim to KNOW Christ but they don’t truly OBEY CHRIST! For to OBEY Christ actually means to FOLLOW Christ’s biblical commands!

Jesus says in Matthew 5: 17-18 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”.

In other words, what Jesus is saying here is that the Old Testament laws (minus animal sacrifice, since Jesus eventually became the sacrifice HIMSELF for all of mankind) STILL APPLY! Hebrews 13:8 states “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever”. So what does that mean in plain English, folks? It means that Jesus Christ DOES NOT CHANGE and that his biblical laws DO NOT CHANGE! 

Therefore, even today in 2018 & beyond, we must STILL follow in the 7th day BIBLICAL SABBATH (SATURDAY) and in the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (such as Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) Now, there’s around 2.3 billion (plus or minus) Christians in the world, out of about 7.3 billion people on the planet. And the bible says that ALL of those 2.3 billion or so Christians must OBEY CHRIST’S JEWISH/BIBLICAL LAWS!

And so just how many Christians do you think are actually doing that, these days? How many Christians out there do you think are following the 7th day BIBLICAL Sabbath, are celebrating in the BIBLICAL holidays (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) and are following the BIBLICAL laws (such as no eating pork, no wearing mixed fabrics, etc.?) Not very many, I can tell you that right now!

“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” – Mark 7:7

Many Christians these days are simply unaware of the fact that they’re profaning the BIBLICAL Sabbath by celebrating in the Sun-day/man-made (Catholic Church) Sabbath! And I pray that the Lord Jesus has mercy upon those folks and that He finds any number of ways to try to reach them with THE TRUTH before it’s too late!

Because MANY Christians, upon learning THE TRUTH about “the church’s” history will GLADLY follow the Lord’s commandments, once they really learn what the Lord’s commands REALLY ARE! Others sit on the fence awhile, comfortably clinging to their own “tradition”, figuring that eventually, they’ll stop their man-made traditions in order to fully follow Christ. And yet others aren’t really sure WHAT to think and waver between two opinions for far too long!

But in fact, in 1 Kings 18:21 it says: “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word”

The fact that the people “answered him not a word” says ALOT! It says that:

A). They didn’t truly know their God, the God of Israel (Jesus Christ Almighty)

B). They had given themselves over to demons/demonic spirits

C). They were full of “confusion”. 1 Corinthians 14:33 proclaims that “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints”.

In other words, the gospel of Jesus Christ (in and of itself) is NOT supposed to be “confusing”. However, all OTHER gospels and all OTHER religions contradict themselves. But Messianic Judaism/Jewish-roots Christianity is the ONLY religion on Earth that does NOT contradict itself! Reason being? It doesn’t have to! Everything is there in place, in neatly divined order and nothing’s out of place.

In other words, our God (the God of the bible) is NOT a God of Chaos but of NEATLY-DEFINED ORDER! From the laws of physics to the complexity of DNA, there is nothing out of place, no what ifs, everything is organized and in place! Everything is unique and has its very own special unique properties!

Another VERY INTERESTING fact from the Old Testament concerning The Sabbath is in Exodus 31:14 – “Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people”.

So in other words, the Lord God considers The 7th-Day Sabbath SO important that he proclaims that ANYONE who profaned it (back in Old Testament times) should be EXECUTED/PUT TO DEATH! OUCH! That’s pretty heavy, folks! Nevertheless, that truly tells us something, here: that tells us that if Jesus considered the profaning of the Sabbath to SUCH a degree in the Old Testament, that he most likely considers it JUST AS “weighty” in the New Testament & beyond! THIS IS SOBERING, FOLKS!

There are SO many Christians out there today that claim “it doesn’t matter on WHAT day you follow as The Sabbath, just AS LONG AS you follow ONE day a week FOR the Sabbath!” Wow! Such strong words! Jesus would likely be SPIRITUALLY APPALLED at those words! But lets start with the first three: “it doesn’t matter”. Well, we know from the bible that it DOES matter, it matters VERY, VERY MUCH! In fact, it mattered SO MUCH in the Old Testament that people were PUT TO DEATH for profaning it! So CLEARLY it DOES matter on WHICH day you follow as The Sabbath!

One interesting paradigm in the bible considers the two cases of Ishmael (Abraham’s son by his Egyptian slave woman, Hagar) and Isaac (his natural-born son by his wife, Sarah). Isaac is PART of the Covenant of God while Ishmael is NOT! Now why is that, do you think? Answer: Ishmael was born out of a time of “sin” (i.e. NOT waiting on God and acting prematurely IN PLACE OF GOD!)

Now what other instance in the bible can we think of where a supposed one of God ACTED PREMATURELY in PLACE OF GOD? Answer: When King Saul went ahead and made the animal sacrifice WITHOUT waiting on the prophet Samuel to arrive! And look what happened to HIM! Abraham, on the other hand, had a true heart for God and was FORGIVEN of his sin of “pre-maturing” the will of God

After Abraham REPENTED of his sin of “pre-maturing the will of God” and decided to WAIT for the will of God, Isaac was born! Therefore, Isaac was born at a time when there was NO sin surrounding the time of his birth! That’s why Isaac got to be a part of God’s Covenant, but Ishmael did NOT! Furthermore, Ishmael MOCKED Isaac and was cast out (along with his mother, Hagar) from the home of Abraham! And this was a foreshadowing of all the people that will be loved but still THROWN OUT of the presense of God at the time of the End! Why? Because they MOCKED the divine providence of God! Make sense?

And the covenant being with Isaac…….? Isaac is a prototype of all of today’s Christians that don’t just BELIEVE in Almighty God but OBEY HIM…….JOYFULLY OBEY HIM! Therefore, Isaac was a foreshadowing of all of today’s Christians that WILL BE/ARE a part of God’s TRUE biblical covenant! And so WHAT, once again, is **THE SIGN** OF that covenant? Answer: It is the keeping of the 7-day Biblical Sabbath (SATURDAY!)

[[P.S.: On a side note, you just KNOW we’re living in the Last Days when even some of the Jews THEMSELVES are trying NOT to keep the Biblical Sabbath Laws!]] 

https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Supreme-court-lays-down-the-law-on-Shabbat-businesses-508479

Therefore, we have a choice: We can CHOOSE to become the spiritual essence of either Ishmael (the “cast out” son) or of Isaac (the “blessed son”). We’re free to make the choice, but what we are NOT free from is the eternal consequence of said choice. So for example, IF we make the WRONG CHOICE (i.e. choose to become the spiritual essence of Ishmael, the “cast out” son), and DIE in that choice, we are NOT free from the eternal lake of fire that awaits us! But if we choose the RIGHT CHOICE (becoming the spiritual essence of Isaac, the BLESSED SON), then we ARE automatically spared from the eternal lake of fire. Make sense, folks?

It is my hope and prayer that you will decide to become an “Isaac” (a 7th-Day Sabbath & biblical feasts/laws keeper) rather than an “Ishmael” (a person that thinks they can mock the God of the bible – rather directly or indirectly – and live their own way and celebrate in their own man-made Sabbaths/laws/feasts). Amen.
