Foreshadowing – a warning or indication of (a future event). So, for example, many episodes of the American TV cartoon called “The Simpsons” portrayed events that hadn’t YET happened but happened many years later (e.g. the 9/11 attacks, etc.)

Therefore, what a “foreshadow” is, is a foretelling of things to com Pre-conditioning, on the other hand, is a condition that must be fulfilled before other things can happen or be done. Therefore, the “pre-conditioning” of the masses FOR the “Mark of the Beast” just simply means getting people to accept the “concept” OF “The Mark” BEFORE the actual process of The Mark being globally instituted happens! Make sense? 

Here is just a quick “preview” of what the Mark of the Beast will BE like, folks……what’s happening in China right now – in September of 2018:

And in Revelation 13 [New Testament, book of Revelation, Chapter 13], we start to see a more clearer picture of the End Times global world leader who will demand worship from ALL of the Earth’s inhabitants (even Christians!) He will require every man, woman and child to get a “Mark” in their right hand or their foreheads in order to be able to buy or sell. And whomever does NOT have this “Mark” will NOT be able to buy or sell and WILL (immediately, or eventually) be KILLED for refusing “The Mark!”

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his nameHere is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six”
[- Revelation 13: 16-18]

He will ALSO have the ability to perform FALSE MIRACLES, such as bring down fire from heaven in the site of men!

Revelation 13: 13-15 says: And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed”. 

Therefore, the world’s soon gonna have a one world government leader who “appears to be the answer to all of the Earth’s problems”. He’ll perform “false miracles” like bring fire down from heaven in the site of men, and look/talk/act SO compelling, that he’ll deceive MANY – even many of those who call themselves “Christian!”

And HOW will he be able to do this, you might ask? Answer: He’ll be indwelt with the power of Satan! And there’ll be ONE way and only way ONLY to NOT be deceived by the one world government leader, the “Anti-Christ” and that’s THIS: Have your name recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life! “What’s the Lamb’s Book of Life?”, some might be wondering. Answer: It is Jesus’s “record book”, if you will, of all his FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS! Therefore, YOU must have YOUR name recorded in Jesus’s Book of Life in order to A) receive eternal salvation and B) NOT be deceived by the Antichrist!

“So how is one able to do THAT?”, some may wonder. And the answer is simple: CALL UPON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE, REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND *OBEY* CHRIST IN YOUR DAY TO DAY *LIVES!* It sounds easy. But it’s really not. It takes SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE!!!!

Parents: Imagine your lives before children, before parental responsibilities. Things were so much easier then, huh? But then children came into the picture and things became harder, am I right? So it is with following Jesus. Following Jesus is NOT for the faint of heart! It takes DISCIPLINE! It takes SHEER DETERMINATION! It takes TOTAL AND COMPLETE *FAITH!* And the REASON it takes disciple is BECAUSE of HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!

For when you TRULY follow Christ, YOU will experience “persecution” in some way, shape or form! And folks, if you can’t handle a little persecution as a Christian NOW, how will you EVER be able to handle it LATER, when the persecution hits a FEVER PITCH, when Christians are rounded up, arrested and KILLED for refusing to take The Mark of the Beast? It begs of question!

Many Christians of today think that The Mark of the Beast is FAR, FAR AWAY into the future and/or that we’ll be raptured out of here BEFORE The Mark of the Beast takes place. However, NEITHER of those scenarios is the case, according to the bible! Jesus said in Matthew 24:34 “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled”. In other words, in Matthew chapter of the New Testament, the disciples of Jesus come to Jesus privately and ask him what the signs of the end times are. And Jesus tells them all of the signs of “the last generation”.

In other words, Jesus is saying there that THE GENERATION that sees those things come to pass (SIMULTANEOUSLY) will NOT pass away until all things are fulfilled. Well, guess what, folks, WE are that “last generation” of Matthew 24: 4-51. How? I can prove it to you:

  • There HAVE been MANY “false Christs” (such as David Koresh, Jim Jones, etc.)
  • There HAVE been MANY wars and “rumors of wars”
  • Nations & Kingdoms ARE starting to rise up against one another
  • There HAVE BEEN/ARE famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places
  • Many Christian people (in Africa & Middle East, etc.) ARE/HAVE BEEN imprisoned/tortured/killed for the name of Christ
  • Christians ARE hated in EVERY nation on Earth
  • Many people ARE “offended” at a great many things and HATE one another
  • False “prophets” ARE arising and ARE deceiving many
  • Sin IS abounding and love IS growing cold in today’s world
  • The gospel of the kingdom (of Jesus) IS being preached in all the world

In fact, Matthew 24:14 proclaims the following: “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

So, as far as I can see, we’re STILL living out the FIRST part of Matthew 24:14, the 2nd part of Matthew 24:14 hasn’t happened, yet! Just like Revelation 13:16 hasn’t happened YET……..Though it soon WILL!

In today’s world, there are MANY precursors (“previews”) to “Mark of the Beast“:

1). Students in Texas told they can’t enter cafeteria, use the library, and/or participate in “school functions” UNLESS they carry around a “GPS-enabled” ID card

Diablo Magazine! Ha! Diablo is the Spanish word for DEVIL! Go figure! And OFCOURSE “Devil Magazine”‘s gonna have a “favorable view” to DNA-Editing, since DNA-Editing is what Satan planned ALL ALONG!

7). Intro to Mobile Payments

8). Monster Energy drinks are from Satan – Daily Mail

9). The over-riding temptation to buy/own/use an Amazon Alexa, etc. (in and of ITSELF), as well as THE EXPLOSION of “Alexa” and “Alexa related products” in just about EACH and EVERY U.S. home! [As well as homes across the world, probably!] As in, it’s become MORE increasing aware that if YOU don’t have/own/use an “Alexa” of some sort, YOU are NOT considered a part of “modern technological society”. People in fact are REFUSING to see how Amazon Alexa is A) tied in to artificial technology (i.e. Antichrist technology) and how B) the Gov’t will USE Alexa to “track and record” its citizens! TRUE! It will also somehow (in MY opinion, anyways) be TIED INTO the “Mark of the Beast”, as in “interact WITH The Mark”.

10). Students in Denmark were instructed by their teacher to PUT A MICROCHIP into a STARFISH – WITHOUT the Starfish’s consent ofcourse (and the Starfish RESISTED – because the Starfish is SMART! However, humans are NOT Starfish! Therefore, those that take the Mark simply won’t HAVE the ability to “remove the microchip from their bodies!”): https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=98&v=Asry6QJR4hA

11). “Micro-chipping your PETS“…..It won’t be long before they start micro-chipping PEOPLE…..they’ve already done that in offices in Sweden…….

12). ETC.

And folks, that does NOT even include all the famous authors, celebrities, Youtubers, etc. that are touting “666” clothing and hand signs! But we’re HERE, folks! We’re HERE, already! Mark of the Beast is JUST AROUND THE CORNER! We’re already seeing all the 7+ “pre-conditionings” for it!

Why does Satan have to PRECONDITION THE MASSES for something? Answer: Because MOST human beings (on a base level) are ADVERSE to his Satanic “policies” and Satanic “agendas”. That’s why they have to be “warmed UP” to them! That’s why they have to be “pre-conditioned” TO them! Basically, Satan wants humans to become SO desensitized to “sin” and to “blasphemy”, that it “doesn’t even bother us anymore!” Because when it “doesn’t even bother us anymore”, we’ll stop caring so much about righteousness and when Christians (as a whole) stop caring so much about righteousness, SIN REIGNS! UNRIGHTEOUSNESS REIGNS! SATAN REIGNS!

I’m honestly scared for humanity (especially Christians!) Many Christians today are just in the dark and have NO IDEA of the “hell” that awaits them in today’s world! Things are going to get BAD! Really, really bad! Right before Jesus Christ returns, it’s LITERALLY going to be “Hell on Earth!” (Sorry for my words there but that’s the ONLY way I can think of to describe it). The bible says that love is gonna wax COLD (meaning, people are gonna hate and BETRAY one another for NO REASON!) Meaning, many family members, friends and coworkers will be DIVIDED amongst themselves, concerning the Mark of the Beast. Some will TAKE the Mark, while others WON’T! And the ones that have or DO take “The Mark” will HIGHLY TRY TO COERCE/PRESSURE the ones who haven’t taken the Mark TO take the Mark! Arguments such as:

  • “Oh, come on, just take The Mark. It’s not gonna kill you. I’m sure God won’t send you to eternal hell/the lake of fire for needing to feed yourself/your family!”
  • “Oh, come on, it’s not that bad. Besides, my health has improved by leaps and bounds and I look better than I have in 30 years!”
  • “Oh, come on, what are you waiting for? God knows you need to eat!”
  • Gosh! What’s your @!#$$% problem? Are you REALLY that paranoid over a new economic system? You’re retarded! I feel sorry for you! What an IDIOT!”
  • “You better take the Mark……..or else they’re going to KILL YOU! You don’t want to be KILLED, do you?”
  • “They’re honestly going to kill me/us/them IF you don’t take The Mark! You wouldn’t want ME/them/us to be KILLED, would you?” 
  • “Now, I know what you’re thinking…….so and so is the Antichrist, right? Only, he’s not the Anti-Christ! He just wants to make the world a better place. What’s so wrong about THAT? Why do you hate “the leader” so much? Don’t you KNOW that “the leader” cares GREATLY for you? That “I” care greatly for you? I just don’t want to see you suffer!”
  • “Jesus is an @@#$ and a liar! Why has Jesus made YOU suffer so much if he “cares so greatly FOR you?” I can’t BELIEVE you’re actually following what a 2,000 year old Jewish rabbi says!”
  • “Ya know……nobody cares about Jesus or the bible anymore. You’re irrelevant! ONLY by taking The Mark will you ever gain stature or being taken seriously in today’s world!”  
  • “Geesh! I can’t believe you’re THAT worked up over the Mark. It’s JUST a Mark to be able to buy or sell, nothing more. What are YOU so afraid of?”
  • “I’m going to turn you in if you don’t get The Mark. I REFUSE to be an enemy of the state. YOU on the other hand…..?”
  • “I’m not harboring a fugitive of the state. So you better get The Mark OR ELSE!”
  • “If you don’t take The Mark, we’re through!”
  • “If you don’t take The Mark, I’m gonna torchure/kill you/your family/your children/your pets/etc.”
  • “You won’t get your latest paycheck/bank deposit/driver’s license/passport, etc. until you take The Mark”
  • ETC. 

And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the IMMENSE PRESSURE that many people will feel (even Christians) to take the Mark in order to feed themselves/their families/their pets and/or their friends. But folks: We’ve got to start training ourselves NOW…..training ourselves to RESIST TEMPTATION!

Cause like I said, evangelist Anita Fuentes brought up a VERY good point in one of her most recent bible sermonettes when she said: “Folks…..if you can’t resist something as simple as a chocolate bar NOW, what makes you think you’ll be able to resist The Mark of the Beast later?” And she’s right, it’s the ULTIMATE temptation of temptations, the FINAL TEMPTATION of mankind! 

So, for example, WHEN you’re at the grocery store and you see that chocolate bar or that donut or whatever else looks good and/or you drive by the latest fast food joint, seeing an advertised picture in the window of the place and it looks SO good and SO delicious and your body and your brain is just SCREAMING to have that chocolate bar and/or delicious, fattening product…..Learn through the spiritual disciple of Christ to PUT DOWN THAT CHOCOLATE BAR ETC. AND NOT BUY IT and/or to DRIVE BY THAT FAST FOOD PLACE AND NOT GO THERE! And believe me folks, it takes SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE! I myself even am currently in the process of trying to train myself to DEFY TEMPTATIONS at the grocery stores and in fast food places!

WOW….Just right now, at this VERY moment when I’m writing this out, the Lord has revealed something onto me. And that’s THIS: the “irresistible urge” to buy fattening products is INDEED in and of itself a “precursor” to the ULTIMATE TEMPTATION that people will feel to take the Mark of the Beast WHEN the Mark of the Beast comes about! WOW! That’s CHILLING! I feel convicted, even!

For I must admit, I am one of those people who have struggled with occasional temptations of fattening food and fast food! And sometimes, the temptations to buy those things are just UNBEARABLE! (It’s probably actually somewhat similar to what an alcoholic feels when they can’t get their alcohol, etc.) My body is just SCREAMING for fattening food! So sometimes I feel overpowered BY these temptations and go ahead and buy the food “just to shut my brain up”, already!  

But then, after consuming it, I don’t ever feel better folks, I feel WORSE! And EVEN MORE hungry than I did before! They say that sugar addiction is 10 times worse than being addicted to cocaine! (And I’ve never personally been addicted to cocaine, but I imagine it’s pretty addicting). So I guess that’s essentially the “point” that Anita was trying to make…..

For if sugar has become “the god of their lives”, then it won’t be long before the Antichrist ALSO becomes the “god of their lives”. Because ANYTHING, and I do mean ANYTHING that takes us AWAY from Jesus Christ, (including addiction to sugar/fattening foods) can easily become “our god” and ANY “god” before Christ is a “precursor” to the Antichrist!

I know that I’ve written many, many posts on this subject and apologize for writing so many, but I REALLY need people to get this! That’s WHY I write so many posts on this subject and repeat my warnings, over and over and over again! Because I want to make 100% sure that YOU know the truth of the bible and that YOU, my dear readers, do NOT cave to ANY LIE brought about by Satan, demons or the world! I want to make sure that YOU are prepared to endure in the Last Days! I want to make sure that YOUR name will be recorded in the Lamb’s (Jesus’s) Book of Life! I want to make sure that YOU endure till the End!

And last but not least, HERE is a video that’ll hopefully PREPARE YOU to RESIST the Mark of the Beast and well as all of its “temptations”: {P.S.: DON’T FORGET TO ALSO PRAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS FOR THE STRENGTH & WILL TO CARRY THROUGH THE TRIBULATION *WITHOUT THE MARK* – NO MATTER WHAT! NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF PRAYER!}
