Brothers and sisters in Christ…
The Bible warns there will be the Anti-christ…a man who proclaims to be God…who will unite the world in a one world government, with a one world financial system, and establish a one world religion. While we cannot predict “the day or the hour,” when you put all these components together, it’s starting to look even now a lot like the beginnings of the End. 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. [Revelation 13:16-17] At the very least, world events signal the inaugural of the Great Reset, which will prepare the way for the coming of the Anti-christ. Following is an article [a link will be provided at the end] you need to keep and periodically re-read, as you watch unfold during the coming days all that is being presented below.
- Biden Declares War on the U S. Constitution and Millions of Americans with New National Vaccination Mandate.
As predicted in 2020, vaccine passports are being rolled out across the world, including the U.S. As reported by Ron Paul in his Liberty Report, which streamed live March 29, 2021, the Biden Administration said it was “seriously looking into establishing some kind of federal vaccine passport system, where Americans who cannot (or will not) prove to the government they have been jabbed with the experimental vaccine will be legally treated as second-class citizens.”
Well, brethren, on September 10, 2021, Biden has formally announced such a program. Ron Paul warned that if it happens, this system “will quickly morph into a copy of China’s ‘social credit’ system, where undesirable behaviors are severely punished.” I’ve been saying the same thing for many months now, and that there’s every reason to suspect that this is indeed where we’re headed. Well…here we are; it has happened just as predicted.
The COVID-19 data simply doesn’t support the roll-out of this kind of draconian measure. In the absence of a serious, truly massively lethal threat to a major portion of U.S. citizens, having to show vaccine papers in order to travel and enter certain social venues is clearly more about imposing top-down government control than safeguarding public health.
- We’re Looking at the End of Human Liberty in the West
Mandatory vaccine passports will be massively discriminating, and are quite frankly senseless, considering the so-called COVID-19 “vaccines” don’t work like vaccines. They’re designed to lessen symptoms when the inoculated person gets infected, but they do not actually prevent them from getting infected in the first place, and they don’t prevent the spread of the virus... which is being proven by the number of fully vaccinated people who not only are coming down with the Delta variant of COVID, but are being told they can spread it to others.
With statistics like this, vaccine passports are nothing but “loyalty cards” in an Orwellian Technocracy, proving you’ve submitted to being a lab rat for an experimental injection and nothing more, because in reality, vaccinated individuals are no safer than unvaccinated ones. It’s a truly mind-boggling ruse, and unless enough people are able to see it for what it is, the world will rather literally be turned into a prison planet.
This has already happened in Austrailia, which has literally become a prison nation incarcerating its citizens with unimaginable covid restrictions. In Israel …we’re hearing from activists that it’s a two-tiered society and that basically, activists are ostracized and surveilled continually. It is the end of civil society, and they are trying to roll it out around the world.
As noted by former Clinton adviser and author Naomi Wolf, mandatory COVID-19 passports would spell the “end of human liberty in the West.” In a March 28, 2021, interview with Fox News’ Steve Hilton, she said: “‘Vaccine passport’ sounds like a fine thing if you don’t understand what those platforms can do. I’m the CEO of a tech company, I understand what these platforms can do. It is not about the vaccine, it’s not about the virus, it’s about your data. Once this rolls out, you don’t have a choice about being part of the system. What people have to understand is that any other functionality can be loaded onto that platform with no problem at all. It can be merged with your Paypal account, with your digital currency. Microsoft is already talking about merging it with payment plans. Your network can be sucked up. It geo-locates you everywhere you go. Your credit history can be included. All of your medical and health history can be included. This has already happened in Israel. It is absolutely so much more than a vaccine pass. I cannot stress enough that vaccine passports have the power to turn off your life, or to turn on your life, to let you engage in society or be marginalized.
- Largest Medical Experiment in the History of the World
As noted by Donald Rucker, who led the Trump Administration’s health IT office, the individual tracking that goes along with a vaccine passport will also help officials to evaluate the effectiveness and long-term safety of the experimental vaccines. He told The Washington Post: “The tracking of vaccinations is not just simply for vaccine passports. The tracking of vaccinations is a broader issue of ‘we’re giving a novel biologic agent to the entire country,’ more or less.”
In other words, health officials know full well that this mass vaccination campaign is a roll of the dice. It’s the largest medical experiment in the history of the world, and vaccine certificates will allow them to track all of the millions of “test subjects…lab rats.” This alone should be cause enough to end all discussions about vaccine mandates, yet the experimental nature of these injections is being completely ignored.
Again, by shaming people who have concerns about participating in a medical experiment and threatening to bar them from society, government officials are proving that this is not for the greater good. It’s not about public health. It’s about creating loyal subjects…people who are literally willing to sacrifice their lives and the lives of their children at the request of the government, no questions asked.
- Vaccinations Are the New ‘Purity Test’ of the Faithful in an Orwellian Technocracy.
Wolf points out the horrific history of IBM, which developed a similar but less sophisticated system of punch cards that allowed Nazi Germany to create a two-tier society and ultimately facilitated the rounding up of Jews for extermination. Suffice it to say, some of the most gruesome parts of history are now repeating right before our eyes, and we must not turn away from this ugly truth. Doing so may turn out to be far more lethal than COVID-19 ever was.
A 93-year-old Holocaust survivor compares mask wearing to, as a Jew, having to wear a yellow star to mark their societal status. However, back then, everyone understood what was happening, she says. At no point were they lied to and told that wearing the star was for their own good, which is what’s happening now. So, in that respect, the current situation is far more insidious. She says the “hypocrisy in the public narrative,” which claims that we need to wear masks to protect the old, “is absolutely unbearable.” “I would love to die in a state of freedom,” she says, “than live like this.” To see people defile their children with masks is something totally unbearable to me,” she says. Vaccine credentials, in my view, are even more comparable to the Jewish yellow star, but in reverse.
Not having the certificate will be the yellow star of our day, which will allow business owners, government officials and just about anyone else to treat you like a second-class citizen and deny you access to everything from education, work and travel, to recreation, social engagements and daily commerce…all under the false guise of you being a biological threat to all those who have been vaccinated. According to the public narrative, vaccine certificates are a key aspect of getting life back to normal, but the reality is the complete converse, as they will usher in a markedly different society that is anything but normal.
- Eugenics and Hygiene Obsessions
While it’s often considered bad policy to compare anything to the Nazi regime, the comparisons are growing more readily identifiable by the day, which makes them hard to avoid. Aside from the parallels that can be drawn between mask wearing and/or vaccine “papers” and the Jewish yellow star, there’s the Nazi’s four-step process for dehumanizing the Jews…prejudice, scapegoating, discrimination and persecution…a process that indoctrinated the German people into agreeing with, or at least going along with, the plan to commit genocide. In present day, the public narrative is not only building prejudice against people who refuse to wear masks or get an experimental vaccine, but is also using healthy people as scapegoats from the very beginning, blaming the spread of the virus on asymptomatically infected people.
With the roll-out of vaccine certificates, we are stepping firmly into discrimination territory. The last step will entail persecution of non-vaccinated individuals. This in and of itself also harkens back to the Nazi regime, which was obsessed with “health guidelines” that eventually led to the mass-purging of “unclean” Jews. As reported by Gina Florio in a December 2020 Evie Magazine article: “When Hitler first came to power in Nazi Germany, he kicked off a series of public health schemes. He started by setting up health screenings all over the country, sending vans around to every neighborhood to conduct tuberculosis testing, etc. Next up was factory cleanliness…he launched a robust campaign encouraging factories to completely revamp their space, thoroughly clean every corner. After the factories, the next mission was cleaning up the asylums.
What started as seemingly innocent or well-meaning public health campaigns quickly spiraled into an extermination of races and groups of people who were considered dirty or disgusting. In short, the beginning of Hitler’s reign was a constant expansion of who was contaminated and who was impure. Similarly, in our day we’re seeing an obsession with covering our faces all the time so we don’t spread disease or deadly germs; most public places we walk into won’t even allow us to enter without slathering our hands in hand sanitizer; and people act terrified of someone who isn’t wearing a mask. Nobody can say with a straight face that this is normal behavior. We’re even seeing people advocate for some kind of tracking device to show that a person is vaccinated or ‘clean’ enough to enter a venue. Let’s hope we can all learn the lessons from the past and we don’t witness history repeat itself.
- History Is Repeating Itself
Indeed, everyone calling for vaccine certificates…which became part of the public narrative early on in the pandemic…is guilty of following in the well-worn footsteps of this infamous dictator, repeating the very same patterns that were universally condemned after the fall of the Third Reich.
Highlighting them all would be too great a task for one article, so two glaring examples will have to suffice. In December 2020, Andrew Yang, an entrepreneurial attorney with political ambitions, published the following: “Is there a way for someone to easily show that they have been vaccinated…like a bar code they can download to their phone? There ought to be. Tough to have mass gatherings like concerts or ballgames without either mass adoption of the vaccine or a means of signaling.” Signaling what, if not your “unclean” biohazard state? In his March 2021 statement, law professor, political commentator and former U.S. attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Harry Litman, was more direct about the ill intent behind vaccine certificates, saying: “Vaccine passports are a good idea. Among other things, it will single out the still large contingent of people who refuse vaccines, who will be foreclosed from doing a lot of things their peers can do. That should help break the resistance down.”
Comments like these demonstrate that vaccine passports are about creating justification for segregation, discrimination and elimination of certain groups of people, in this case, people who don’t want to be part of the experimental vaccine program. The justification is that they’re too “unclean,” too “unsafe” to freely participate in public society and must therefore be identified and shut out. In reality, it’s really about identifying the non-compliant.
During the Nazi reign, those slated for segregation, discrimination and elimination were identified by their affiliation with Judaism. Today, the global elimination strategy foregoes such identities, and focuses instead on identifying who will go along with the program and who will be a noncompliant troublemaker. In short, vaccine passports are a device to identify who the loyal subjects of the unelected elite are, and who aren’t. Those unwilling to enter the new world of technocratic rule without a fuss are the ones that need to be eliminated, and willingness to be a test subject for an unproven experimental treatment is the litmus test. It’s really not more complicated than that.
- Are You Ready To Be an Outcast?
Vaccination looks to be the defining issue of the next few years at least. And those who resist the edicts of the state will increasingly find themselves on the outside; outcasts in their own country.”
This is essentially the conclusion drawn by Mike Whitney as well, detailed in an article posted on The Unz Review. In his article, he points out that behavioral psychologists have been employed by the government to promote the COVID-19 vaccination campaign and maximize vaccine uptake. They also have a “rapid response team” in place to attack the opinions of those who question the “official narrative.” Mike also highlights a National Institutes of Health report titled, “COVID-19 Vaccination Communication: Applying Behavioral and Social Science to Address Vaccine Hesitancy and Foster Vaccine Confidence,” which lays out the intent to turn vaccine refusers into social outcasts as a tool to coerce compliance.
“This is very scary stuff,” Whitney writes. “Agents of the state now identify critics of the COVID vaccine as their mortal enemies. How did we get here? And how did we get to the point where the government is targeting people who don’t agree with them? This is way beyond Orwell. We have entered some creepy alternate universe.”
If behavioral psychologists helped to shape the government’s strategy on mass vaccination, then in what other policies were they involved? Were these the ‘professionals’ who conjured up the pandemic restrictions? Were the masks, the social distancing and the lockdowns all promoted by ‘experts’ as a way to undermine normal human relations and inflict the maximum psychological pain on the American people? Was the intention to create a weak and submissive population that would willingly accept the dismantling of democratic institutions, the dramatic restructuring of the economy, and the imposition of a new political order? These questions need to be answered.
- Will You Obey?
Will You Obey the Criminal Authoritarians? The 1962 Milgram Experiment tested the limits of human obedience to authority, proving most people will simply follow orders, even when those orders go against their own sound judgment. They’ll commit atrocious acts of violence against others simply because they were told it’s OK by an authority figure. We’ve already seen examples of this during the past year’s mask mandates. Suddenly, people felt empowered to verbally harass, pepper spray and physically attack others simply for not wearing a mask. Families were kicked off planes because their toddlers wouldn’t wear a mask. People were even shot for the grievous “crime” of not wearing a mask. If those things were allowed to happen over mask wearing, one can only imagine what will be tolerated, if not encouraged, when vaccine certificates take full effect.
The most obvious answer is to take a firm stand against devolution into inhumanity, regardless of whether you think COVID-19 vaccinations are a good idea or not. The question is, will you? In many ways, the months and years ahead will test the ethics and humanity of every single one of us. https://www.dropbox.com/s/um7s3mt0nx6gtqg/vaccines-are-the-new-purity-test-pdf.pdf?dl=0
Lord God Almighty, when Your judgments come upon the Earth…When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or when I command locusts to devour the land, or when I send a plague among my people…the people of the world learn righteousness. Though You show grace to the wicked, even so, they still did not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they continue going on doing evil, and regard not the Majesty of the Lord.
Heaven is My throne, and the Earth is My footstool. Has not My hand created all these things, and so everything in them are Mine? These are the ones whom I esteem: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, who obediently revere My words and stand in awe of all I say. [Triune God…Isa 66:1-2]
ETERNAL PROMISE: MY PROMISED REST. Sheltered in My Father’s Arms
Beloved…you are My child, in whom I am well-pleased. I love you with a fathomless love; you are the apple of My eye. I take great pleasure in you, ** **. Come, abide with Me in the shelter of the Most High…here in the Holy of Holies, in My unclouded Presence within the Heavenly Sanctuary, where you will find your home and your resting place in the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered in My loving arms. I am your Refuge and your Fortress, your God and Father, in Whom you may trust with an unwavering child-like trust, and in Whom you may continually be at rest in an unruffled child-like rest. In My loving arms, ** **, you will find rest for your soul; all shall be peaceful and calm, tranquil and unruffled.
Surely, My beloved child, I shall deliver you from the hidden traps and from deadly hazards. I shall cover you with My pinions, and under My wings you shall abide with Me and find refuge. You will be safe in My care; My truth and My faithfulness will protect and defend you. You need not be afraid of any terror of the night, nor the sudden evil attacks of the enemy during the day, nor of any dreaded diseases that stalk in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death of disasters that surprise and lay waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ** **, and ten thousand at your right hand…but these evils will not touch you! Safe and secure in the secret place of the Most High, you will be only a spectator as you witness the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made Me your refuge, ** **, and the Most High your dwelling place, there shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your dwelling place. For I give My angels special charge over you, to accompany, defend, and preserve you in all your ways of obedience and service. They will steady you with their hands, and keep you from stumbling against the rocks on the pathway. You can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes; you will walk unharmed among them…yes, even trample them beneath your feet!
Because you have set your love upon Me, ** **, therefore will I deliver you. I will set you on high, because you know and understand My Name through our deep and intimate Sacred Covenant relationship. Because you are My beloved child, You shall call upon Me and I will answer you; I will be with you in trouble, I will deliver you and honor you. With long life will I satisfy you and show you My salvation.
Precious child…the Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire. Since everything on the Earth will be destroyed in this way, ** **, live a holy and godly life as you look forward to that coming Day! Everyone who has this hope purifies himself, just as Christ Jesus My Son is pure. Beloved…continually wash your robes in the Blood of Jesus as you look forward to His imminent return; wash your garments that have been soiled with sin, making them clean again, dazzling and white. Wash your feet with pure water; wash the dust of sin off your feet. Blessed are you who wash your robes, that you may have the right to enter through the gates into the City and eat the fruit from the Tree of Life! Continually and diligently do these things, that you may always abide with Me in the Holy of Holies, in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of My unclouded Presence. My child…this is your birth-right!
Blessed Jesus…thank You for so wonderfully encouraging me, “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold on to what you have, ** **, so that no one will deprive you of your crown. Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith I will make a pillar in the Temple of My God. Never again will you leave it! I will write on you the Name of My God and the name of the City of My God…the new Jerusalem…which is coming down out of Heaven from My God. And I will also write on you My Own new Name.”
Abba Father…You are a shield around me; You bestow glory on me, and lift up my head. To You I cry aloud…and You answer me from Your Holy hill. I lie down and sleep in peace; I awaken again in the morning, because You sustain me. I will not fear even tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side! For have You not promised? I will never, never, leave you; I will never, ever, forsake you! Assuredly not! O Lord, You are my Help; of whom shall I be afraid? What can man do to me? Thank You, Father, for giving me a good night sleep. Thank You for bringing me safely through the night. Thank You for being my shield and my protector…for watching over me, protecting me, and keeping me safe. Thank You especially for keeping me safe from those temptations and sins that so easily beset me; I am so grateful. Father, I realize…I acknowledge…my sin-enslaved human nature has no power to stand against these temptations and sins. My human nature is a prisoner of sin, held captive by sin, in bondage to sin, enslaved by sin; it is hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to do anything that is good or pleasing or acceptable to You. But Your Divine Son Jesus has set me eternally free from the penalty for sin, and He has set me free from the power of sin!
Blessed Jesus…by virtue of the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood, which You poured out on my behalf on that cross at Calvary for the forgiveness of my sins, there is now no condemnation for those of us who are joined together with You in a living union of oneness as Your bride…the bride of Christ! O death…where now is your victory? Where now is your sting? The sting that causes eternal death is sin…and sin gets its power and authority to cause death from the Law. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the Book of the Law, to do them;” and “The wages of sin is eternal death.”
But thanks be to You, Father…You have given me the victory over both sin and death through Christ Jesus You Son! In Him, You have given me the free gift of eternal life…for the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set me forever free from the Law of sin and death! You have called me out of darkness into You marvelous Light; You have transferred me out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light! I am no longer a citizen of this world, no longer under the jurisdiction of the law of this world…the law of sin and death. I am a citizen of Heaven, and as such I am under the jurisdiction of the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!
Precious Jesus…the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood has guaranteed and secured that the Eternal Holy Spirit was indeed given as God’s Eternal gift to dwell in me…never to leave me, never to forsake me. He is the Power of the Divine nature now abiding in me Who continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life: faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ in our divine marriage; faithfully within the Holy of Holies in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence, Father, in our Sacred Covenant relationship.
Sovereign Holy Spirit…You are my strength! You make my feet like hinds feet; You give me strength and courage to walk along my high places…places of trouble, and hardship, and responsibility. In Your Power, I can say to that mountain, “Who are you, O mighty impassable mountain of human obstacles! You shall become a level plain, a mere mole hill! Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea! Who are you, O great impenetrable wall of human obstacles! You shall become a garden border, a mere stepping stool! Spirit of the Living God…in Your Power, I can climb a mountain, I can scale a wall; my hands can bend a bow of bronze! I can do all things given me to do through Christ Jesus…Who strengthens me! Hallelujah!
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
When I survey the wondrous cross:
Then I saw in the right hand of Him Who sat on the Throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals…the title-deeds to God’s wonderfully created Earth that had been forfeited and mortgaged to Satan and his seed, detailing within the required price and particulars for the redemption of that inheritance thus forfeited and disponed away by Adam’s sin. And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” But no one in Heaven or on Earth or under the Earth could satisfy the requirements to open the scroll or even look inside it. I wept and wept with uncontrollable grief because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside…that all the promises of the prophets, and all the hopes of the saints, and all the pre-intimations of a redeemed world, and the very redemption of the purchased possession, was thus to end in abject failure! Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, He has triumphed over sin and death. He has paid the redemption price of the forfeited inheritance, and thus He is the true Go’el (OT:1350) Who is able to open the scroll and break forever its debarring seven seals.”
Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, yet alive forever and ever, standing in the center of the Throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. He overcame by His perfect obedience unto death, and paid the price of redemption in His meek sufferings, bearing our sins in His own body and vanquishing all legal disabilities by His atoning Blood, and thereby is adjudged worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals. He had seven horns…bespeaking His Sovereign Power, and majesty, and invincible strength…and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God in His all-penetrating fullness of intellectual and spiritual power sent out into all the Earth. He came and took the scroll from the right hand of Him Who sat on the Throne…that momentous act for which all Creation has ever so patiently waited for and longed for…the lifting of the title-deeds of the alienated inheritance…the legal act of repossession of all that was lost in Adam, paid for by the Blood and tears of the Son of God! He was thereby now assuming His role and was now to begin His reign on Earth as the King of kings, and the Lord of lords. The appointed time had now come for the rightful owner of the estate to enforce the indignation of that Throne against all who stand in rebellion against it, preparations having already been made for the sending forth in succession with the breaking of each seal a strong Destroyer in fierce assault upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth! The universe is stricken with awe, and Heaven looks on in solemn silence as that act of taking possession of the scroll is being performed; and when He had taken it, there went an ineffable thrill through the universal heart of all Creation, and the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down in adoring wonder and joy before the Lamb! Each one had a harp in remembrance of what all His holy prophets have ever prophesied and sung about concerning the fulfillment of God’s promised event, and they were holding golden bowls full of sweet incense before God and before the Lamb, which are the, until now, unanswered volumes and oceans of prayers of the saints that have ever entreated their God that “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.” And they sang a new song…a song which had never before been sung:
“You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals,
because You were slain, and with Your Blood
You purchased men…even us…for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation!
You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
and they, whom we are privileged to represent,
will now begin our promised reign on the Earth forever and ever!”
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand! They encircled the Throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice echoing through the depths of space, they sang:
“Worthy is the Lamb, Who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!”
Then wider and still wider spread the sympathetic response of adoring rapture, as I heard every creature in Heaven and on Earth and under the Earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing:
“To Him Who sits on the Throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”
The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped! [Revelation 5:1-14]
Following are several portions of Scripture dealing with the Mark of the Beast:
- Revelation 13:16-20
He [the False Prophet] was given power to give breath to the image of the first Beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark. The mark of the Beast consisted of the two Greek characters that stand for the name of Christ, with a third, the figure of a crooked serpent, put between them (CHXS)…the very name of God’s Messiah transformed into a devil sacrament, which is the name of the Beast or the number of his name!
This calls for wisdom, so as to detect and discern the moral degradation and anti-Christian principles characterizing the spirit of the Anti-christ which lay people open to his power, and the subtle atheism and unfaith by which people are betrayed into his hands, already working so powerfully in so many deceptive forms about us.If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the Beast, for it is man’s number denoting evil in its greatest intensity and most disastrous manifestations. His number is 666.
Thus we have the full embodiment of all evil now revealed and operative on the Earth, manifested in an infernal trinity, the mimicry of eternal realities.
First, is the unseen and hidden father, the Dragon, that old serpent, the Devil.
The next is the seven-headed and ten-horned Beast from the sea, “the Son of Perdition,” begotten of the Devil, his Earthly manifestation, who dies, and revives again, and reappears on Earth after having been in the invisible world, as Christ, and is awarded the power and throne of his father the Devil.
And to this comes a third, the two-horned Beast from the Earth, who proceeds from the Dragon father and Dragon son, for his speech is the Dragon’s speech, and “he exercises all the authority of the first Beast in his presence,” carrying into living effect the Satanic will of both the father and the son.
Thus, we perceive three distinct personalities…the Devil, the Anti-christ, and “The False Prophet;” and these three are one…one vital essence, one economy, and one administration. The Dragon sets up as the anti-God; the ten-horned Beast, his son, is the anti-Christ; and the two-horned Beast, proceeding from and operating in the interest of both, is the anti-Holy Spirit. And these three together are Hell’s trinity in unity, the Devil’s unity in trinity!
- Revelation 14:9-12
A third angel followed them…preaching and crying a most intense and solemn warning with all the power and eloquence of angels…and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the Beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath!He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb! And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever! There is no rest day or night for those who worship the Beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name!”This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus, refusing to worship the Beast or to accept his mark upon themselves.
- Revelation 14:17-20
Another Angel came out of the Temple, the Temple in Heaven, this being the Angel of Yahweh Himself, and in His capacity as the Angel of the Temple…the Great High Priest…He too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the altar-fire…that fire of Divine justice which ever burns against sin and sinners…came forth from the altar of Yahweh’s temple on the Earth, and he also called in a loud voice to Him who had the sharp sickle, likewise crying out for vengeance against the Anti-christ as did the first angel from the temple,“Take Your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the Earth’s vine, because its grapes of wickednessare ripe to the full for judgment.” The Angel swung His sickle on the Earth, gathered the vine of the Earth rooted in the Anti-christ that stands in opposition to the vine of Christ, laden with its grapes that are the children of wickedness, and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the now consecrated and Holy City Jerusalem, in the Valley of Megiddo… Armageddon. The kings of the Earth and of the whole world, and their armies, are utterly consumed…and a river of human blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia (180 miles)! Thus was brought to a conclusion the great and terrible Day of the Lord, in which God fulfilled His intention to consume all opposition and to take vengeance upon the enemies and usurpers who occupy the Earth…a more detailed account of which is now to follow.
ENDURE TO THE END
I am coming quickly. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will deprive you of your crown. Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith…I will make a pillar in the Sanctuary of My God. Never again will you leave it. I will write on you the name of My God and you will be a citizen in the city of My God…the new Jerusalem…which will come down out of Heaven from My God; I will also write on you My Own new name.
