Biblical comments on the Mark


  Posted by Darrell Stetler II on Thursday, November 28 8:59 pm

I think that in the context of debating "the Mark" and all, we should remember to be biblical above all else. Let us not say more than the Bible says. First, it is clear that the Bible indicates that there will be many who do not accept this mark. (See Rev. 7:9, 14 --note that it is a number that "no man could number" -- "These are they which have come out of (the) Great Tribulation." (The definite article is in the Greek.)

Therefore, there will be have the "discernment" necessary to NOT take this Mark.

It is dangerous to assume that anything currently in use is the Mark of The Beast. This is true for 2 reasons:
a) This mark implies that one is also willing to "worship the image of the beast" (Rev. 19:20) It is also appears to be unpardonable, since ALL those who have received it and worshipped the beast are slain by the lamb in Rev. 19, and ONLY those who have NOT received it, nor worshipped the Beast or his image are in heaven. (Rev. 20:4)
b) Since a) is the case, it is impossible that one could accidentally take a mark that would inorexably damn one's soul forever. Remember what the essence of sin is (I John 3:4) -- "lawlessness" (Gr. anomos) -- a spirit that refuses to be governed by the law of God! It is not possible to accidentally REFUSE to be governed by the laws of God.

I would therefore posit that when the mark of the Beast shows up, it will be perfectly obvious to ALL Christians. There will no doubt be some who choose to reject Christ in favor of Antichrist, yet this will be no ACCIDENTAL acceptance of a mark such as a Social Security or driver's license number, or even a chip. It will be a deliberate act of submission to the ultimate enemy of Christ.

I would welcome any return comments to darelstet2@juno.com.
