It hit me like a bolt of lightning that taking the mark of the beast causes one to spend their eternity in hell. For those who do not know about the mark of the beast it is mentioned twice in the Revelation and referenced to in six verses and it is the mark that the Antichrist will make everyone take and wear on their wrists or on their foreheads during his reign.
According to the Revelation no man will be able to buy or sell without the mark. Years ago Evangelical Christians knew that this would be a high tech method of buying and selling and it became big news when there came talk of a cash less society and credit and debit cards became the norm. In around the year 2000, emerged from the tech world identification implants, called sub-dermal implants,(verichip, rfid chip) which marketed to pet owners to identify their lost pets and is also used for medical purposes and to track criminals. Of all names the company is called Digital Angel, which I renamed digital dark angel. It was literally right out of the book of Revelation and the Evangelical Christian community spread the news like a wild fire.
In Revelation we are told in several passages that anyone who takes the mark of the beast will go to hell. It dawned on me that this mark has to be more than a payment system to cause one to lose their chance at heaven and damn them to hell.
In my book the Seat of the Antichrist, I talk about how the Antichrist’s kingdom is a counterfeit to the kingdom of God. We see many parallels in Scripture of the Antichrist to Jesus that I talk about in my blogs and in a youtube video. In my book I mention how God marks those that are His and the Antichrist also will mark those who are his.
In this broadcast I am going to talk about how the device is more than just a payment device. How do we get God’s mark, by trusting in Jesus as our Savior, by making Him first in our life by worshiping Him as savior. The Holy Spirit connects us with God. In the six verses about the mark, we also read in the same verse that those who took the mark also worshiped the image of the beast. This worship and the taking of the mark go together. You cannot buy or sell if you do not have the mark but a payment device should not cause one to go to hell should it? This is because it is more than just a payment device. This is what my show is about today, is why the mark of the beast causes eternal damnation.
It is my thought that the Antichrist will be connected to his followers just as Jesus is connected to His through the Holy Spirit. In my book I made mention of a quote from a scientist of what was next on the horizon and today I am going to elaborate on it further because the technology is also making great strides. It is called brain interface and it allows one to think a thought and cause an action in a computer. It has been used so far for medical reasons, such as with use of a robotic limb that the person can think a thought and cause to move. At first it required being hooked up to a helmet full of electrodes but now it only requires an implantable device and I even read of a device that does not have to be implanted and can rest on the outer brain.
The technology even connected two brains, a human and a rat and a man was able to wave the tail of a rat. According to Future Tense “Its like they’re reading my mind, how next generation apps will market your brainwaves:
In the last few years, the cost of EEG devices has dropped considerably, and consumer-grade headsets are becoming more affordable and can now be purchased for as little as $100. Companies are looking to these devices to produce
Self monitoring tools,
Touch free keyboards,
A hands free game controller NeuroSky, an EEG headset developer, produced a guide on innovative ways for game developers to incorporate BCIs for a better gaming experience.
Auto manufacturers are exploring BCIs to detect drivers’ drowsiness levels and improve their reaction time. Market researchers want to use data from these same BCI devices to measure the attention level and emotional responses of focus groups to various advertisements and products.
Scientists are skeptical of the efficacy of these tools, but companies are nevertheless rushing to bring them to consumers. Companies could detect whether you’re paying attention to ads, how you feel about them, and whether they are personally relevant to you. Imagine an app that can detect when you’re hungry and show you ads for restaurants or select music playlists according to your mood. Health insurance companies could use EEG data to determine your deductible based on EEG-recorded stress levels. Companies will be able to identify risk indicators for things like suicide, depression, or emotional instability.
Government Works Inc., is developing BCI headsets for lie detection and criminal investigations. By measuring a person’s responses to questions and images, evidence collected from these devices has already been used in criminal trials. Although the jury is still out on the reliability of these devices.
A company has also come out with a phone that you do not have to speak into, you wear a collar around your neck and think and it picks up the vibrations and converts them to sound.
According to the EU Commission and note that I quote the Commission because this is where the Mark will originate from but the revived Roman Empire, which is the European Union.
Computer scientists have predicted that within the next twenty years neural interfaces will bedesigned that will not only increase the dynamic range of senses, but will also enhance memoryand enable “cyber think” — invisible communication with others.
Other potential uses of implantable ICT devices include:
The human body as a medium for transmission of data (and energy) to “other devices” like PDAs (Personal Digital Assistant), cellular phones, medical devices (for surveillance purposes: like for instance in retired people’s homes), RFID making possible to localize other persons. In a family website your children could log onto the surveillance system and look at what their parents or grandparents are doing. The patent does not describe any specific device.
“Smart guns”: Applied Digital Solutions (ADS), which created the VeriChip™, announced in April 2004 a partnership with gun manufactures FN Manufacturing to produce so-called“smart guns”. Such weapons can be fired only if operated by their owner with a RFID-chip implanted in his or her hand. One of the verses that mention eternal damnation for taking the mark is Revelation 14:9-11 and it reads:
9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
Based on the technology available today, the image of the beast will be some sort of a computerized clone of the Antichrist and he will have access to each and every person via his mark and the computer will provide him the ultimate control over his police state and over the population. To take the mark you will directly hook to the Antichrist and give your soul and mind to him. The Antichrist’s computer clone, the false prophet will give the breath of life to and make speak. People will be amazed and will literally worship this scientific stride. Daniel 11:17-18 tells us the Antichrist will not honor any god for he exalts himself above all, but in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses, and a god which his fathers did know he shall honor, the King James says it this way, Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.,
This strange, foreign god that his fathers did not know is the god of this technology for his police state, which connects him to his people and numbers 666. It is this thing, this computer mind, people controlling thing that looks like him that he places in the holy of holies as its home as if to say he is god.
To take the mark will mean that you will be directed and controlled by him or his government and they will know your every move, thought and they will be able to put their thoughts into your mind.
To accept this mark you give a part of yourself to him and his government. You worship him and give yourself over to him and his government, i.e. the beast. He will seek out those who do not take the mark to kill them and this is where Jesus forecasted that fathers will turn in their children and children will turn in their parents to be put to death for not taking the mark. It will be all or nothing, you give Antichrist your all by this act, or you will be killed and in being killed will gain eternal life. As we get closer to the Tribulation, parts of prophecy that we could not understand are now becoming clear. It is getting so close now that if you do not know Jesus you had better make sure you know Him and if you are a believer you haven’t much time left to serve our Lord and Savior.
And he deceives those[e] who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[f] the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete.
2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark[a] and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. 3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying:
New King James Version (NKJV)
2 So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.
New King James Version (NKJV)
19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
New King James Version (NKJV)
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a[a] thousand years.
