There is something brewing which hardly anybody cares to understand.
We will soon have to make the decision, if we are willing to go along
with what this world has in store for us, or if we want to follow the
supreme Leader of the Universe. It will not be that obvious as to
what it really is about, when we are first confronted with it,
because it will appear suddenly, in a guise of deception.
.... 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 ...
There are grievous consequences for refusing to accept the mark - you will be forced to yield up all commercial rights (won't be able to buy or sell anymore), you will have to live isolated from society and then will be sentenced to death in absentia.
.... 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.
... and causeth that as many as would not worship
the image of the beast should be killed.
[ historic Realities ]
Most of us are not inclined to worry about these things, but then we should not be surprised at the outcome, as we will be getting the mark automatically simply because we don't have a clue as to what this is all about. This is not about an external mark that will be forced on us as a tattoo on our forehead or on the right hand, rather it is something that will manifest itself as a peculiar form of worship, something that can be discerned only in a spiritual sense.
[ the real Origin ]
For all of us who don't intend to receive the Mark, it would be advisable
to make sure, what this is about. The question here is if we want to
live on, or not - if we want to have eternal life in happiness with
Jesus, or if we prefer to be conveyed under intense pain and
suffering to our final destination of eternal nothingness.
