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”. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Distractions, Distractions……What Now?

For those of us who have personally vowed to serve Jesus Christ the rest of the days of our lives, it is of no surprise that we all have phases where it seems to be one thing after another after another that distracts us from our “Christ-serving duty”. The phone rings, a good movie comes on TV, the cat needs fed, we have to go get an oil change in our car, etc.

And these occurrences are quite normal & temporary distractions. But what should one do when faced with a “permanent distraction”, that would, if one kept partaking in it, forever take one away from the glory and kingdom of God/Jesus Christ? A distraction that might at first seem harmless but that is actually FATAL to one’s “spiritual health” with Jesus Christ?

I am ofcourse talking about the types of sin that are “perpetual sins”. Sins that seem harmless at first but that can actually destroy a person’s soul from within.  Particularly, the types of sins that one was ONCE delivered from or that NEEDS deliverance from.

For example, have you ever been addicted to pornography, alcohol, drugs? Lusted after someone of the same gender or opposite gender, outside of marriage? Felt suicidal and/or self-condemning thoughts? Had sex outside of marriage? Hated someone without just cause? All of these “sins” are sins that seem “harmless” by today’s “worldly standards”. But these are sins that can easily put a person away for LIFE (in the “spiritual sense”, anyways) by becoming what’s known as “perpetual sins”.

Satan knows our weak spots. He knows what’s going to make us fall. He knows EXACTLY what buttons to push to turn us away from Jesus Christ and onto a path that leads to hell and/or eternal punishment/condemnation after this Earthly life.

And after this Earthly life is all said and done and each person stands before Jesus Christ on Judgment Day, will ANY of those lustful Earthly pleasures matter anymore? Will anything we did during this life to increase our own pleasure matter anymore? NO. What will matter is where we stand with Jesus Christ; rather we were a person who believed in him and tried to follow all his commandments the best we could and knew how or if we were one of those people that chose pleasure over God/Jesus Christ.

Revelation 20:15 (New Testament, book of Revelation, chapter 20, verse 15) gives some VERY dire warnings about the eternal condemnation that befalls those who don’t put their faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ! It reads:Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire”.

Those are some pretty strong, powerful words there! And if they strike fear into your heart, that’s a GOOD thing! For it means the Holy Spirit is at work in you right now, trying to spiritually convict you of your sin(s)!

The first thing one must do (ESPECIALLY when struggling with perpetual sins) is to pray: “Lord Jesus, I’m MAJORLY struggling with this sin/these sins in my life and can’t seem to stop for the LIFE of me! Please, please help me to overcome them! Do whatever it is in my life you have to do, in order to HELP me overcome them! I’ll do whatever you want me to do, Lord, just please, please help me overcome this!” and believe the prayer with all your heart, all your soul and ALL your mind! Have FAITH that the Lord Jesus Christ will help you overcome and he WILL help you overcome, if only you believe!

And yes, perpetual sins can’t be overcome overnight. It’s a process. You will likely have to take baby steps in overcoming perpetual sins bit by bit, little by little. But all that effort will be worth it in the long run, BELIEVE ME! For if your faith is strong enough, the Lord Jesus can help you overcome perpetual sins PERMANENTLY! MARK MY WORDS!

You might FEEL hopeless right now and down in the dumps. You might FEEL as though “I’m NEVER going to overcome this” but DON’T LET THE DEVIL WIN! Satan WANTS you to feel discouraged! Satan WANTS you to feel helpless and hopeless and like you will NEVER overcome the perpetual sins you’re struggling with right now! But in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the mighty power of the Lord Jesus Christ, you CAN overcome and you WILL overcome, if only you have FAITH!

And hey, look on the bright side, if you DON’T have faith right now, you can always PRAY to have faith! For nothing pleases the Lord more than when one PRAYS to have faith! If the Lord had to choose between a person having no faith and PRAYING to have faith, which person do you think he’d be most pleased with? Think about it, folks!

And remember the following passages:

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son” – John 14:13

“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” – Matthew 19:26

“And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamore tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you” – Luke 17:6
