Why Refuse the Mark?
Many people will take the mark of the beast. Some will
do so willingly to show their allegiance to the beast, while others will take the mark out of a feeling of necessity; after
all, it will be impossible to buy or sell without the mark. Many will say, “I have to take the mark, or else I will
die.” The Lord Jesus Christ tells us that there we must deny ourselves if we are to follow him. He also tells us that
there are some who will think that they are saving their lives, but they will lose their lives.
Then said Jesus
unto his disciples, If any
man will come after me, let him
and take up his cross, and follow me. For
whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and
whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall
find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall
the whole world, and lose his own soul?
or what shall a man
give in exchange for his
soul? (Matthew 16:24--26)
In the not-too-distant future, no one will be able to buy food, shelter, clothing,
or any other necessity without receiving the mark of the beast.
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.
however, many places in God’s Word that warn us that there are terrible consequences for taking the mark. These include
facing God’s wrath for all eternity.
the third angel followed them, saying
with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast
and his image, and receive his mark in the
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 whosever receiveth
the mark of his name. (Revelation 14:9--11)
Those who reject God’s mercy that has come to
us in Jesus Christ will face the wrath of God. Those who reject Jesus Christ during the reign of the Beast will be deceived
and receive the mark of the beast. If a person receives the mark of the beast, they will face the full “wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture.” The phrase “without
undiluted or full strength.
the final judgment, the wrath of God will be poured out upon all who receive the mark of the Beast while they are still here
upon the Earth.
And I heard a great voice out of the temple
saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and
pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the
earth. And the first went, and poured 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.
I don’t know the medical cause of the “noisome and grievous sore” that will come upon all those who receive the mark of the beast, but I wonder if the
sores could be the result of the almost constant exposure to radio frequency energy once the cashless/RFID system is put in
place? Scanners will be almost everywhere, businesses, hospitals, airports, homes, all government buildings, and who knows
where else? Every time a person is near a scanner, radio frequency radiation will penetrate their body, and if they have an
implanted chip, a small amount of that energy will be reflected back through their flesh to be picked up by the scanner. The
energy that is reflected by an RFID chip contains not only the primary frequency that it received from the scanner, but also
harmonics, or multiples, of that frequency. What effect will the energy that is reflected by the implanted chip have upon
the human body?
almost constant exposure to radio frequency radiation cause cancer or some other kind of sore that will be the “noisome and grievous” sore mentioned in Revelation Chapter 16?
