Let’s think about the mark of the beast

Revelation 13:16-17 KJV 16 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: 17 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.
Think about ALL the important aspects in these verses because you have been deceived.
Let’s begin with the most popular and obvious…receive a mark & all must receive a mark, but what does the mark do?
The mark causes division among mankind.
Currently, in 2021, the entire world…”all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond” are being told they should receive a serum (pharmakeia: Galatians 5:20; Revelation 9:21; 18:23). The serum does not prevent you from contracting or even cure the illness. The illness for which the serum has been developed has a significantly high survival rate percentage. Has there ever been in the past this kind of push for a serum? Why the push for a 100% compliance rate?
In their right hand, or in their foreheads…
The location of the mark of the beast is significant. The hand represents your power (livelihood) to provide and support yourself in addition to others for whom you are responsible (1 Peter 3:22; Acts 5:31; Mark 16:19).
The forehead represents the ability to think, reason, and maintain self-control. The media and entertainment industries have very influential powers of persuasion. Many people are attempting to mirror the images portrayed in the various media and entertainment platforms. If they say or do it, so should I. What are you allowing to affect your thoughts, steer your decisions, and motivate you to act? Are these things self focused or neighbor focused?
No man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark…
The mark controls. It controls the thing mankind views as valuable. The ability to obtain things.
Here in the USA we live very indulgent lives. Most anything you want can be obtained almost instantly. Our lives are based on the next want, but not the next need. The mark of the beast will come in the form of control over goods and services. The same goods and services you currently use to obtain and support yourself along with others you are responsible for.
Many governments in the world are considering the use of health passports as a resolution for this current crisis. Some of the restrictions being discussed would be businesses could legally refuse to serve a patron without a passport. If these passports become law this would restrict freedom of choice for every person. Free will is what defines mankind. The law would ensure consequences were imposed on those who do not obey.
Please understand what is happening…whatever the solution for this global crisis…it is geared to:
1 – segregate mankind under categories (division)
2 – specify what permissions or privileges would be allowed based on the category (comforts)
3 – cite those who are disobedient and decree punishment (control)
Can you hear the ‘sss’ of the serpent? Stop waiting for the face of the beast to appear because you are already deceived. You need to understand the plan for the end game is already being carried out. The plan for a one world government is staring you in the face. The solutions being discussed would be enforced globally. The name they use for the land you live in won’t matter because the solution will be one global government. The book of Daniel clearly defines there will be multiple kingdoms until the Kingdom of God which is the ONLY one world nation (Daniel 2:42-45). In this scripture of Daniel there is also mention of the mingling themselves with the seed of men (Daniel 2:43). There have been reports of various things included in the serum which alter the DNA structure of mankind. This is still up for debate, but are you willing to take that chance? Get the facts before proceeding & falling into the snare of the enemy (Hosea 4:6).
God gave many prophets warnings about the end of days to be recorded for His people. This was so that we could prepare and not be deceived (Deuteronomy 11:16). A modern day comparison could be the weather forecast. If the forecast (prophecy) is for a 100% chance of rain (deception) but you don’t take an umbrella (Word of God) then you’re not prepared. Folks, the rain has begun. Have you opened your umbrella for shelter or are you standing in the rain?
