We are living in a time where nearly everyone in the world has been assigned a number. Every nation that has a national debt is required by their multinational creditors to track taxpayers' income. As you will soon find out, Treaties with multinational authorities require the U.S. government to issue Social Security numbers.
During the Bible's end times, no one should be able to buy or sell without one of three things. Revelation 13:17 (King James Version): "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."
There are significant rewards for those who avoid the Mark-Name-Number of Revelation 13:17. Those who resist the mark will be given the Harps of God according to Revelation 15:2. And avoid God's wrath per Revelation 16:2. And reign with Christ if they die refusing the Mark, Revelation 20:4.
There are also significant punishments associated with accepting this Mark. Those who receive the Mark will "be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb" according to Revelation 14:10.
Why then, would anyone risk participating in this final Mark-Name-Number system? There is only one reason revealed: To qualify for buying and selling. NO OTHER REASON IS GIVEN.
Since the risk is so great, it would be prudent to carefully study anything remotely resembling this mark or name or number. Especially anything authorizing you to buy or to sell.
Shouldn't a number already authorizing your buying and selling be suspicious? Did you get a number so you could sell your labor? Is this also a banking authorization number? Is this number also needed to buy or rent housing, or buy medical care, or buy a license to travel? Do you need this number to buy government ID? Without ID you cannot cash a check. The Uniform Commercial Code, Section 3-110 requires ID of anyone cashing a check. Without an ID mark engraved by a government, your commerce is limited to the crimes of tax evasion and money laundering. How could you be so sure that you have avoided the dreaded mark, name or number of the Beast?
What is a Mark? The word "Mark" in the book of Revelation is translated from the Greek "charagma" which means “etching” or “badge of servitude.” In ancient Rome slaves carried a “badge of servitude,” which was often just an imprint of the master’s family seal baked in clay. It protected the slave from unwarranted detention as he traveled on errands for his master. Transactions were conducted in the name of the master, and the master would be held liable for the acts of his servants. Even today: you could be detained if you cannot show ID, and merchants might not conduct commerce without proof that you have some master’s authority to exist. As today’s badge of servitude, the Social Security Card certainly serves this purpose.
What is a Beast? DIVINE interpretation in Daniel 7:23 equates Daniel's final Beast with a final world kingdom, not a church, not a king, not a man, not an antichrist. The word "antichrist" does not appear in the book of Revelation. Throughout history, "Beasts" symbolize kingdoms. Even today, "The United States" is symbolized by an Eagle, England by a Lion, and Russia by a Bear. In Revelation 13, an end time confederation of Daniel's Beasts (like unto a leopard-bear-lion with 7 heads and 10 horns) has been assimilated by Daniel's fourth exceedingly dreadful (Dan 7:19) iron Beast, that was to take away the dominion of other Beast powers (Dan 7:12), consume and trample down the whole earth and break it to pieces (verse 23). This final Beast kingdom lets the two horned second Beast of Revelation 13:11 issue the dreaded Mark of the Beast. The 10-horned Beast does not issue the Mark. The two-horned second beast is the Beast that causes all to receive the "Mark of the Beast" in Revelation 13:16.
The first Beast is often equated with the Roman Empire. This interpretation is consistent with Nebuchadnezzar's iron legs final world kingdom mentioned in Daniel 2:40. Do you have a Mark issued by the authority of a final world power that is a confederation of Daniel's Beast powers? The answer may surprise you. After the American Revolutionary War, England's King George III signed a Treaty that authorizes the U.S. to exist. In this Treaty, the king explicitly retained his title to the Roman Empire and the United States.
There is overwhelming evidence that the Social Security Card has ALL the characteristics of the Mark of the Beast. I have found nothing in Scripture that rules out a Social Security Card. This essay will give you references so that you can study the issues and make your own decision to reject this apocalyptic Mark.
Since most of you won't believe the Bible's authority, I'll cite your laws, regulations and Supreme Court decisions as a higher authority. These are quoted for those of you who venerate man's law above God's law. They are quoted merely to help you understand the consequences of God's laws. The existence of these Treaties, court rulings, Statutes and regulations are merely proof that throughout history those who forget God's authority are taken into captivity.
This essay has three main themes: (1) your government has already been surrendered to multinational authorities, and (2) you waived all your rights by pledging Allegiance as a ward of your worldly master/provider/savior, and (3) a Bible believer will not worship this worldly lord.
This essay will give you enough verifiable references for you to prove to yourself that:
Most Americans have been systematically deceived bit by bit, precept upon precept, that they might fall backward and be snared into accepting a counterfeit government. By accepting small incremental compromises, America was transformed from a Holy nation into a nation that will receive the due penalty for its perversion. All the circumstances involving the mark are circumstances created in small incremental steps by deceived socialists who received not the love of the truth that they might be saved. Throughout the history of mankind, an unchanging God has seen fit to arrange for brutal pagans to take into captivity any nation that obeys a counterfeit authority. Conquering nations are instruments of His discipline (Isa 8:4-10, 10:5-6, 45:1-3; Jer 5:15-18, 20:4-5, 24:10; Eze 21:15-23, 30:24-26, 32:11-15). IS AMERICA GOING TO BE ANY DIFFERENT, OR DID GOD CHANGE?
Many people cannot believe that God would punish them just for getting a silly number. They are under a strong delusion. It is not just a number.
One premise of my message is that the term 'worship' can include swearing of a Perjury Oath on an Application Form. If your signature is not a type of worship, then I prove nothing. You can stop reading, and continue with your buying and selling. But first, go to any dictionary or encyclopedia and look up "oaths" and you will find that an oath is always a religious ceremony.
Can you take the Mark of the Beast accidentally? There are many hints that the endtimes will be confusing. Revelation 20:4 says that those who receive the Mark will be deceived. Revelation 13:18 says that it takes wisdom to understand the number of the Beast. Verse 17 says that a name or a number or a Mark can authorize buying and selling. Daniel 12:9-10 says that in the endtimes the wicked shall not understand. Rev 13:9 "he who has an ear let him hear" indicates that you must be receptive to its message. Rev 17:9 says it takes wisdom to understand the beast's identity. 2nd Thessalonians 2:9-10 speaks of deceivableness and delusion in the end times. And in Rev 13:14 the two horned second Beast "deceiveth them that dwell on the earth" to cause them to worship the first Beast. And there is a false Prophet who will influence the kings of the earth. And men will turn to cleverly devised fables. YES, YOU CAN ACCIDENTALLY TAKE THE MARK. Falling for deception has grave consequences today, just as it did for Adam and Eve.
The only real warning we are given (other than noticing that Prophecy became history) is that a mark, name or number will be presented as something that authorizes you to buy or sell. Shouldn't your banking authorization number and employment authorization number be suspicious?
If you applied to a Confederation of Beast powers for permission to buy or sell, then you have created a host of saviors to regulate your life. These man made Idols will demand worship, provide protection, and insure you against God's cataclysms. The word "cataclysm" means "wash down."
Americans have turned to a false image of god for protection from God's long overdue wash down. This false image of god will protect you if you voluntarily swear a perjury oath on a permanent irrevocable record, violate God's Ten Commandments against worshiping other Lords, take God's authority in vain, offer firstfruits (withholding) to this false image of god, and participate in the theft of Socialism.
God's wrath will be poured out undiluted into the cup of His indignation, and the smoke of their torment shall rise forever, whosoever receives the Mark. These are harsh words, but they are in your Bible.
But there is still hope. Nowhere does it say that a repentant Beast worshiper will be damned. Only the unpardonable sin must be damned (Matt 12:31 and Mark 3:29). You can still be rescued from the dominion of darkness and brought into the Kingdom of the Son in whom you have forgiveness. Colossians 1:13-14. God, not Congress, is the Christian's Lawgiver, James 4:12.
Throughout the history of Christianity, there have been a brave few who refused to worship the state God. They refused to affirm that Caesar was Lord. They were fed to the lions. When Emperor Decius issued an edict commanding sacrifice to their gods, those who wanted to live were allowed to burn just a little incense. They were then issued a "Certificate of Compliance." They complied with federal law.
However, those who refused to acknowledge this lordship went to their deaths. They stood. I'm sure these saints were told by many people that, as Christians, they were to obey their Government, and that Government is ordained by God, and that burning incense was not really worship, and that they would be martyrs without a cause if they persist in their silly beliefs.
You too were asked to burn just a little incense. What was your response? You were asked to sign an Oath, under Penalty of Perjury, to your new Lord. Those who did received a Certificate that allows them to buy and sell.
Did you worship, with your Oath, a mighty provider instead of the Lord? A Christian cannot serve a substitute Lord. This is the first and great Commandment. Matt 27:37, Mark 12:30, and Luke 10:27.
Why would you bet your eternal salvation that you are not in any way
forced to worship (with a Perjury Oath) a Beast in order to qualify
for the privilege of buying and selling?
