TRUTH ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST
9. He will compel all the people of the earth to dedicate their lives to satan by taking the mark of the beast – ‘666’. We are already in the season of marks. Every mark is a code, an identity. Marks give identity; they show who owns you or what owns you. Whoever collects the mark of the beast belongs to the beast and will end up in the same place as the beast. Nobody can belong to the beast and at the same time belong to God. Apart from giving identity, marks also gives access. With the mark, 666, the beast will have unlimited access to your life; he is at liberty to operate. Worship has always been the life ambition of satan; he loves worship because he knows the power of worship. If you take a look at the five “I wills” of Lucifer as enumerated in Isa. 14:13-14, you will discover that he wants to be like the most High so that he can be worshiped and that is why he is positioning people, already anointed with the spirit of the antichrist, strategically to call the shots for the purpose of control. The antichrist will use intimidation, torment, affliction and oppression to compel people to take the mark. The sufferings and torments for those who refuse to take the mark of the beast will be unbearable.
Those who succumb to his pressure will go to hell; they are irredeemably lost forever. Rev. 13:16-18 says, “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 name. here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six”. Rev. 14:9-14, says, “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, if any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb; and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Here is patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, write, blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle”. Those who wear denominational bands on their wrist must beware. Your denomination does not own you. Get connected to Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Ghost. Develop a personal relationship with Christ. You are not going to make heaven on the ticket of your denomination. You will only make it on the ticket of Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of the Most High God. It is very easy to collect marks and to get entangled in covenants. Be careful.
