666: End Times Deceptions About the Mark of the Beast

MARK OF THE BEAST
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. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
–Revelation 13:16-18

The Bible is VERY clear about the “mark of the beast.

That doesn’t mean that fake men of god will not try to confuse the masses.

The fake men of God never stop trying to confuse the unwary.

(AUDIO) John MacArthur: Take the Mark of the Beast and Still be Saved – This is what happens when teachings are distorted until few can remember what the Bible originally says.

Error begets error begets error begets error.  Eventually, one ends up with a teaching such as the one here.  But to get to this teaching, layer upon layer of false teachings had to be built on a foundation of twisted scripture.

It’s going to get worse–much worse.  MacArthur is not the first to say “Take the mark of the beast and be forgiven later”.  The Left Behind series also had an instance of someone “being forced” into taking the mark–and later being saved.  There are so many fairy tales masquerading as Christianity.  Many are on display in this short five minute audio clip.

Here is what REALLY happens to all who take the mark of the man of sin and the dragon.

“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.”
Revelation 14:9-11

Seems pretty clear, huh?

Unless you’re a 2013 American church dweller, who is used to inventing “escape clauses” for every inconvenient Bible verse.

No vagueness, no waffling, no guessing: take the mark and drink of the wrath of God–forever.  Maybe John MacArthur will show up in defense of all who take the mark when God judges them?

Wonder who will win that debate?

“And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
2 Timothy 4:4

In the future, Christians will be buffeted by even more deception and false doctrine than they are now.

What’s the answer?

The Bible says one must have a “love of the truth“–not a “love of the convenient” or a “love of comfort” or a “love of what popular teachers teach.”  Our God is a loving One.  His Word will light your way.

Ask for wisdom; He is not stingy.

NOTE: His Word promises us wisdom (James 1:5), not popularity; not cutting edge coolness.

“For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.”
Ecclesiastes 1:18

IS the reader listening to a “man of god” who is much exalted by the world?

Exalted by the World: The Fake Man of God

WHO does the reader believe: the Word of God or his pastor or man of god?

THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
2 Corinthians 4:3
