The Mark of the beast; setting up the US to obey antichrist
Now we hear that San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver will have to go through sensitivity training because of his beliefs about gays. The training and a type of community service is his comeuppances for not following the developing modern doctrine concerning Gays and many non-biblical stances.
Catholics and other abortion opponents have of late hoped that the Obama administration would ease it obamacare mandate on abortive services that many of a different religious conscience are being forced to do under that law.
These are just examples of what is happening to the over-all mindset of this country. A mindset to a large degree determines what our laws will be. Our laws determine which people are being lawful. Laws are a teacher and further shape normality for the future. It determines to a great degree, therefore, those who will be liked, disliked or hated.
Contrary to what some have thought over the centuries, the mark of the beast system will be world wide and will not be some forced number, mark or chip that can be put on you or in you. Jesus said it as clearly as one can, "There is NOTHIN...coming from outside of a man entering into him that can defile him." He went on to explain that what defiles a person is breaking the rules that God has set. His Commands! Likewise the mark of the beast MUST be a system whereby people are forced to make a choice between keeping God's commands or man's (the Devil’s). We also know this from scripture in a round-a-bout way. God contrasted those that have the mark with another group. Let's listen in; Revelation 14:11... "And they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." So, those that will be judged as having the mark of the beast are those that do not believe in the Testimony of Christ and do not keep the commands of God. This has always been the case. Sin is the transgression of God Law as the Apostles Paul and John points out in their letters to the churches.
So, rfid chips, bar codes and other kinds of marks, tatoos or technology can be used to track, keep and forge information but they cannot be the act of sin of themselves.
The case of the Oregon Baker, who is being investigated by the state for not making a wedding cake for a same sex marriage couple, is a prime example of the beginnings of such a system. Instead of the State questioning the ones breaking God's law, the person that wants to keep, preserve and support God's way is persecuted. The world won't see it that way. Many people will not see it that way. Some Churches will not see it that way, up and until situations like that are common and to the point that those that Support God's way cannot BUY OR SELL....that is carry on commerce. It is time the VIRGINS (churches) wake up and see the truth before it is too late as in Christ’s parable concerning them.
The beast power will be a European concern that has in its past 7 iterations; the last being under Hitler, will once again seek to rule the world. This time it will succeed in a form in which Christians world wide will be hated. They will look like the ones against peace and harmony. They will be considered the ones not wanting to obey the new laws. One of the ways the world will force those that choose not to be persecuted is through forbidding them into the marketplace.
