Turning Toward the Mark (The Mark of the Beast)
Many believe that the ‘mark of the beast’ is a physical mark, perhaps in the form of a tattoo, microchip, or RFID tag. But how many people have actually already received the mark by worshiping the beast in various forms and degrees. Jesus said that they who are not for Him are against Him. All those who have not the SEAL OF GOD have the MARK OF THE BEAST, whether they realize it or not.
The Seal of God and the Mark of the Beast
It is already being “applied.” God is even now separating the goats from the sheep. So many are already “turning” to receive the mark of the beast. It is a subtle application. As if breathing an undetectable, poisonous gas that slowly kills, slowly applies its seal to poison those who are unaware they are being exposed to it. The poison is not some invisible concoction of chemicals, but the material and participatory things in today’s spiritually noxious culture. It is not so much even those things that we commonly refer to as the vices but those things that, in and of themselves are rather inanimate and benign, seemingly quite innocent and sterile, yet are really quite toxic in their effect to poison one’s spirit.
These modern material marvels include all of the electronic and mechanical gadgets, entertainment events, culture and social events, and the abundance of the three essential things for life: fine fashion (clothing), fine cuisine (food), and gaunt habitats (shelter). It then does go beyond modern, everyday, concoctions and transitions very fluidly into indulgencies such as alcohol, sport fanaticism, material covetousness, cultish activities, and other cultural and material over indulgences that lead to compulsions and addictions of a more potent kind. These are symptoms of terminal spiritual death which include drunkenness, drugs, pornography, gambling, greed, mysticism, and a variety of other spiritually hallucinogenic and hypnotic routines that become obsessions, distractions, and deceptions from a true, holy life.
After so much exposure, so long a “drinking of the cool-aid” so to speak, the level of consumption reaches a toxic and fatal dose, an irreversible stage. There is so much damage done to the spiritual anatomy — the soul — that no intervention can help, save an outright miracle. At this point, the mark of the beast has been applied or in essence, accepted. In other words, at the point where we may either be required to renounce Jesus Christ and accept an actual ‘mark’ or refuse to renounce Him and be executed by beheading or worse, the choice has already been made. We will have become so dependent on our luxuries, our idols, things as they are, that it will seem traumatic to forsake “the things of this world” for the hereafter.
Along side these ‘norms’ of life, there will be a separation of the good and the evil. As this separation develops, the good (the elect) will unify as the true church and the evil (the lost) will unify as the persecutory forces of Satan. But the lost in these days will believe they are doing good when they persecute — with pleasure — the true believers. The Bible tells us that in the last days, ‘they’ will call good, evil; and call evil, good. This is the strong delusion God will bring upon those who did not have a love for the truth.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! – Isa 5:20 KJV
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. – 2Th 2:11-12 KJV
This is the subtlety of the “application.” There will come a time when the rite, the ceremony, will be exercised or performed, but this is not so much the time of choosing for us as it is a time to identify the Believers for the beast, the evil and satanic system ruled by Satan himself. Those who at this time and up to this point have refused to take the mark, to drink the poison, will refuse the mark; having refused it so many times before.
Is this the admonition of the LORD to the Israelites given to Joshua after God brought them into the promised land? – to choose you this day – choose you daily, who you will serve!
But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshu 24:15
Every day we are filling out the “application” for sainthood or “satanhood.” Every day we are given a test with a list of two choices – a block beside ‘THE LORD’ and a block beside ‘THE DEVIL.’ How many times are we checking the wrong boxes, and in the end — when the grading takes place — will we have passed the test; will we have checked, “THE LORD” – or “THE DEVIL?” Have we been filling out an application for the mark of the Lord or the mark of the beast?
Prayer: Lord, forgive me for checking so many wrong boxes on the application for Sainthood. Amen.
