We are under such ultimate test as noone,which way you decide to choose.
Im in constant dilema keep it,give up it?
Im choosing 2000 years tested truth.
If anyone will appear on the world stage proclaiming himself as God I will be at least aware.Im passing to others in case if that is truth.I will not abandon God for better life,or no life,few money or plenty of money,life or death
Jesus said (Matt. 6:24), “You can NOT serve God and mammon - money; materialism and possessions - because if you love one, you will hate the other”. In other words, materialism and selfishness destroy good and spirituality (LIFE), and bring spiritual death - "Fire"
666 blasphemous names
This verse tells us to calculate or count the number of names the beast has. The beast will have 666 names. When he first comes to earth he starts out with 7 blasphemous names and over the next few months he keeps adding names until he reaches 666 blasphemous names. These are blasphemous names because they claim to be God but they aren’t God. When you count up all of his names there will be 666 names.
Mark of the beast is 666 names
The mark of the beast is the name of the beast or any of his 666 names. In other words, you receive the mark of the beast by taking any one of the beast’s 666 names.
So why does he need so many names? Because he wants to appeal to every person on earth. He carefully select his blasphemous names so that one of his names will appeal to each person on earth.
He will come as Allah or Imam Mahdi to the Muslims, Maitreya Buddha to the Buddhists, Jesus Christ to the Christians, Krishna to the Hindus, Messiah to the Jews, Saoshyant to the Zoroastrians, the “Dark Lord” to satanists, and so on through the whole list of 666 names.
His goal is to win the worship and allegiance of every person on earth.
How can I know the beast isn't God?
When Satan comes to earth in a glorious body and pretends to be God most of the people in the world will believe him. They will deluded and will believe his lie.
Second Thessalonians describes what will happen when the beast comes. The beast is Satan, the lawless one.
“8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.” 2 Thessalonians 2:8-11
Satan will be extremely powerful and he will work miracles and signs. He will lie and deceive almost every person.
Words will contradict the Bible
There will only be one way to differentiate the lawless one from the God that he claims to be. The words that Satan speaks will not agree with the Bible.
“To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20
Satan will speak words that contradict the word of God. He will mix in a few lies with a lot of truth. But when you mix in a little poison with good food the result is poisonous food.
When you mix in a little black paint with white paint, the result is gray paint. So when Satan mixes in lies with truth the result is deception.
Very soon a glorious being is going to show up on earth and claim that he is God. Please listen carefully to his words and test everything he says against the Bible.
“These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.” Acts 17:11
Breaks the ten commandments
Notice that Satan is called the “lawless one”. He does not keep the law of God and he will lead his followers to disobey the law of God.
Satan will tell people that since he is God that he has the right and the ability to change the ten commandments. He will expect people to obey his changed version. But his words will not agree with the ten commandments and he should not be obeyed or worshiped.
Choose against the Mark of the Beast
Every person will be required to choose between 2 options. Please carefully consider these 2 options:
1. Get the mark of the beast – You will be worshiping the beast. The beast is Satan claiming to be God. You will be able to buy and sell. Many people will like you. You can keep your job and your house. But you will soon receive the full wrath of God, poured out without mercy. You will die forever.
2. Refuse the mark of the beast – You will not be able to buy or sell. People will hate you. You will lose your job, your house and most likely your life. But God will have mercy on you and if you believe in Him and worship Him you will live again, forever.
Worship God or Satan?
Every person on earth will worship one of two beings. Either it will be the true God of heaven or it will be the beast, who is Satan claiming to be God.
There is only one way to receive eternal life and one name to believe in to receive salvation.
“the name of Jesus Christ . . . Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:10-12
There are many ways to be lost and many false gods to worship. The beast will have 666 approved names that all claim to be God but are all false.
Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." Matthew7:13,14
Each person will either take God’s name or take one of the beast’s 666 names. God has only 1 name and 1 way – the right way. Satan has 666 names, 666 ways – all wrong.
Whose way will you choose? Whose name will you choose? Whom will you worship?
What if you get the Mark of the Beast?
Here is a very important point. If you choose to get the mark of the beast you are choosing to worship the beast and give him your allegiance. You will be worshiping Satan. You will be breaking the first of the ten commandments. In the first commandment God says,
"You shall have no other gods before Me.” Exodus 20:3
If you worship the beast you are placing another god before the true God of heaven.
If you choose one of the beast’s 666 names to be put on your forehead or on your right hand you are choosing to worship the beast as your god. You will be worshiping a false god and will receive the undiluted wrath of the true God who lives in heaven.
Allowed to buy and sell
It will seem like a good idea to get the mark of the beast because then you will be able to buy and sell. You can buy food and water. You can buy medicine and clothes for your family. You can continue to work at your job and get paid.
Mark of the beast brings the complete wrath of God
Receiving the mark of the beast has a very serious consequence.
The most solemn, fiery threat in the Bible applies to anyone who receives the mark of the beast.
"If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name." Revelation 14:9-11
If you receive the mark of the beast you will receive the full wrath of God. His wrath will not have any mercy mixed in with it.
Everyone who has the mark of the beast will receive seven terrible plagues. The 1st plague will be terrible, painful sores.
"So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image." Revelation 16:2
Get the mark of the beast and die eternally
Beyond receiving 7 plagues full of the wrath of God, the people who receive the mark of the beast will lose the opportunity to live forever. They will die eternally instead.
What if you refuse the Mark of the Beast?
If you refuse to get the mark of the beast you will not be allowed to buy anything or to sell anything. You will not get paid for your work. You will not be able to buy food, medicine, water, fuel, clothes or anything at all. You will be cut off from support and most likely you will be killed.
Can’t buy or sell without the mark of the beast
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17
You will be hated and likely killed
"Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. And you will be hated by all for My name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved." Matthew 10:21,22
You will be forced to get the mark of the beast. If you refuse the mark of the beast you will not be allowed to buy anything or sell anything. You may be put in prison and you may be killed.
So why would anyone refuse the mark of the beast?
Refuse the mark of the beast and live eternally
Some wise people will refuse to worship the beast and to receive the mark of the beast. They will choose to worship the God of heaven instead. Many of these people will be killed. But a short time later they will be raised from the dead and they will live and reign with Christ for 1,000 years.
"Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years." Revelation 20:4
After the 1000 years is over, the people who refused the mark of the beast will live forever and ever with God. They will be perfectly and eternally happy.
