This website is talking about the rise of a man who will perform many signs and wonders but actually be a man of sin, not representing the true God. This page is designed to give you an overview of what you need to know about this time as described in the bible. Basically:
A person should not worship the man of sin, neither give him allegiance through the mark he will cause both small and great to receive.
Rev 13:16-17 And he gives to all, small and great, the poor and those who have wealth, the free and those who are not free, a mark on their right hand or on their brows; So that no man might be able to do trade but he who has the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name.
The bible says that salvation can only be obtained by remaining faithful to the teachings of Jesus through this time. Salvation is gained by maintaining faith in Jesus and His words. The gift of salvation that He gives comes as a result of His suffering on the cross to pardon our sins. Our salvation is not as a result of our perfection, but rather Christ’s act of forgiving our sins on the cross. The bible says we have been called to freedom, i.e. not to come under God’s judgment for our mistakes, yet it goes on to say we should not use this fact as an excuse to sin, rather in kindness serve one another.
It will not be easy in the coming time, for many negative things will happen to Christians who refuse the mark, but also grow in faith, for by faith even mountains can be moved, and know Jesus tells his people to flee for safety so He can keep you safe. Yet it is wise to note no one who receives the mark will be saved, it is important for Christians to know they cannot have the mark. And for those who suffer let’s remember the words of Lamentations, and pauls words, that he, Paul saw it as a compliment, to suffer for Christ, saying God had "counted him worthy to suffer for His name sake".
Lam 3:37-39 Who is able to say a thing, and give effect to it, if it has not been ordered by the Lord? Do not evil and good come from the mouth of the Most High? What protest may a living man make, even a man about the punishment of his sin?
Although during this time not every Christian will be harmed to the point of death, it is worth while noting Jesus words:
Luk 12:4-5 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, who after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
So what are the options, obey, and love Jesus, and don’t take the mark. Or take the mark, obeying the man of sin, and end up in hell. I finish by describing hell for you don’t want that option.
Mat 18:8-9 And if thy hand or thy foot causeth thee to stumble, cut it off, and cast it from thee: it is good for thee to enter into life maimed or halt, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into the eternal fire. And if thine eye causeth thee to stumble, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is good for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire.
Mat 13:49-50 So shall it be in the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the righteous, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
Luk 16:23-24 And in hell, being in great pain, lifting up his eyes he saw Abraham, far away, and Lazarus on his breast. And he gave a cry and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus, so that he may put the end of his finger in water and put it on my tongue, for I am cruelly burning in this flame.
Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their pain goes up for ever and ever; and they have no rest day and night, who give worship to the beast and his image, and have on them the mark of his name.
Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who did the signs before him, by which they were turned from the true way who had the mark of the beast, and who gave worship to his image: these two were put living into the sea of ever-burning fire.
