WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF I TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST?

If you read “what is the mark of the beast,” then you will see that the mark can be several things. Now we look at what will happen if we take the mark and what will happen if we refuse it.

Among the questions going through our minds are, who is going to provide for my children and I? How am I going to get money to provide for myself and my family? How, how, how?

To put this choice in perspective, let us look at what the Bible says will happen to those who take the mark.

If we match these two sets of verses below, one from Revelations and the other from Matthew, we see that they are the perfect match.

Rev 14:9 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,

Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of YAHUAH, 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:

Rev 14:11 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.

 

Mat 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

Mat 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

Mat 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

 

What this does is matches up the mark of the beast with the return of the Messiah. At the same time, it tells us 3 main things:

  1. The mark of the beast signifies we are near the end of this age (world)
  2. There is nothing but torment and lack of peace and discomfort promised for those who take it
  3. The Messiah will be coming to destroy those who take the mark

All three are important in understanding why it is dangerous to take the mark.

While speaking with Jamaicans, it is common to hear comments like, “but what can we do, we have to work, we have to eat!” There is a general resignation to taking the mark. Life must go on.

What if we take this stance, what will happen to us?

 

 

WHAT TIME IS IT? WE ARE NEAR THE END OF THIS AGE

We must bear in mind that we are near the end of this age (Matthew 13:40-42). The mark of the beast is an indicator of the consummation of time. It will be a time of great tribulation, a climax of Jacob’s trouble. The second Exodus and the day of YAHUAH (the day of the wrath of the Father) will follow.

It is a time when end time Bible prophecies will start executing quickly as the Messiah’s return becomes imminent. As the Messiah said, the days are shortened for the sake of the elect (Mat 13:20).

 

 

TORMENT FOR THOSE WHO TAKE THE MARK

Unfortunately for those of us who plan to take the mark of the beast, it is prophesied that those who take the mark will be tormented in the presence of the Lamb and his angels.

In fact, it is also prophesied that there will be a famine of the word in the last days (Amos 8:11-14). This is when the Father takes away his presence and his Spirit from mankind.

Without his presence, man will become evil, self centered and get us back to the days of Noah, when all the thoughts of man’s hearts will be evil continually. Isn’t this what the Messiah told his disciples that will take place before he returns (the end of the world)?

Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

The Most High will take his presence from those who take the mark (I don’t know how long a time after), and the nations will be in turmoil. The taking away of his presence and his Holy Spirit is why they will be in torment:

Rev 14:11 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.

 

PLAGUE FOR THOSE WHO TAKE THE MARK

Did you know that the Most High will deliver a plague for those who take the mark?

Revelation 16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

That is physical affliction for those who took the mark or worshiped the beast and his image. Now we can see how terrible this sore will be if we look at synonyms for the word “noisome.”

Noisome (synonyms):
unpleasant, disagreeable, nasty, distasteful, displeasing, objectionable, off-putting, uninviting, obnoxious, abominable, disgusting, offensive, repulsive, repellent, repugnant, revolting, abhorrent, loathsome, hateful, detestable, execrable, odious, vile, foul, unsavoury, unpalatable, sickening, nauseating, nauseous, ugly; noxious, fetid, rank, rancid, malodorous; informalghastly, horrible, horrid, gross, putrid, sick-making, yucky.

 

Noisome means having an extremely offensive smell or very disagreeable or unpleasant.

Get the idea? Is it worth it?

 

 

THE MESSIAH WILL DESTROY THOSE WHO TAKE THE MARK

Now if noisome and grievous sores are not enough, then comes the Messiah to destroy those who took the mark!

Now there is a common saying that when the Messiah was on earth, the Jews were looking for a lion and got a lamb, while upon his return Christians will be looking for a lamb and will get a lion.

The Messiah (lion of Judah) will be coming back as a no nonsense destroyer of evil and as the king of Israel.

Upon his return, he will destroy those who take the mark of the beast. It does not matter what you call yourself or what denomination you are apart of, whether or not you speak in tongues or keep the Sabbath. If you take the mark of the beast, he will destroy you. See Revelation 14:9 to 11 and Matthew 13:40 to 42.

 

 

CONCLUSION

So we see, there is no good thing for those who take the mark of the beast. It will be a straight decision between whether or not we take the mark of the beast and carry on life for a short time, then suffer incessantly.

The choice, refuse the mark and suffer for a short time and then?

This we will look at in our next article entitled “What If I Refuse The Mark Of The Beast?”
